Jody Thompson | November 22, 2014 | UK Lifestyle

'Yo Jackass, We All Think Our Kid Is the Cutest'

Dr. Peggy Drexler | November 22, 2014 | Technology
The real problem is not that we're an addiction-addled culture of oversharers, though that may indeed be true. Instead, it's that we're a culture of complainers. We complain because it's in our nature, and we're more apt to complain than to do something about it.

Deborah Hersman | November 21, 2014 | Travel
If our everyday lives are hectic, then the holidays are doubly so. How many times have you stayed up late cleaning, packing or worse -- driving through the night to get to your destination to "start your vacation?"

Health for the Holidays? Have Fun!

David Katz, M.D. | November 21, 2014 | Healthy Living

If that pattern persists over the holidays, or picks up again after, you will find in it pretty effective immunity against holiday-related health hazards. Build good health year round, and let the good times roll when the holidays roll around.
