by Eugene Scherbakov Research Assistant, Carnegie Corporation of New York In 1993 I flew from Irkutsk, in southern Siberia, to Moscow--from Moscow to New York--from New York to San Francisco--and, finally, from San Francisco to Monterey. It was a long...
The way that Orlando has come together -- uniting as one, supporting each other and taking care of the fallen and their families -- confirms everything I have always hoped about humanity, strength and the tenacity of the human spirit.

About a year ago I decided to found a Facebook movement named Today I Failed At, aiming at helping people destigmatize their failures and cash in on them. One thing I have learned by working on the concept of success and failure during this period of time is...
I saw an anonymous meme on Facebook this weekend that stopped me in my tracks. It said, "If you found out you were dying, would you be nicer, love more, try something new? Well, you are. We all are." Death is the one guarantee in life, but obviously we don't...
Texan Senator, and former Republican presidential candidate, Ted Cruz held a congressional hearing today, Tuesday, June 28th, examining federal agency responses to “radical Islam.” The mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando revived debate about the terminology we use to...
So here we are. As much as we all willed it not to come back around, Monday morning is here again. None of us are very happy about it, that's for sure. I just began to write out a list of examples to support that statement, but what's the point?...
We have all hoped for a second chance in our lives. Another try at a relationship or fixing a mistake we made. For Isaiah Custodio, a teenager from South Carolina, his second chance came in the form of surviving a brain aneurysm.
Friendship is beautiful; but a friendship that is born from a heroic rescue is downright heartwarming. We are in love with this story about Jake, a Pit bull mix, and Bill Lindler.
Love & Sex,
Love And Relationships,

The glamorization of sleep deprivation is deeply embedded in our culture. Everywhere you turn, sleep deprivation is celebrated, from "You snooze, you lose" to highly burned out people boasting, "I'll sleep when I'm dead." But perhaps those who equate sleep with laziness or lack of dedication can be convinced of the benefits of sleep by looking at what's going on in a world that is the ultimate in pragmatism, where performance and winning are everything: sports. Take Michelle Brooke-Marciniak, an All-American collegiate basketball player at the University of Tennessee who was once named the Final Four's MVP. She went on to play in the WNBA, and then brought her understanding of the link between sleep and performance to the world of business, co-founding the sleepwear and bedding company SHEEX in 2007. In answer to my questions, she shared her insights on how being an athlete has informed her experience as an entrepreneur.

The person who may have been there the longest is the woman who walks you to your car and helps you load your groceries. I think of her title as The Woman in the Parking Lot. I'm guessing she's now in her forties. I'm also guessing that she makes minimum wage plus tips.

I have no idea what will happen between Sophia and Crystal in the coming seasons. Playing her has been one of the great highlights of my lucky career as an actor. I've learned more from Crystal than just about any character I've ever played. And for that, I am eternally grateful.
