Is Giancarlo Stanton's Mega-Contract Rational?

Leigh Steinberg | November 26, 2014 | Sports
When past performance motivates a team to sign a player to guarantees for years in which the player is likely to be diminishing dramatically on the field, it can be a major detriment to the franchise.

My Son After Ferguson: 'I Feel Like I'm Wearing the Losing Team's Jersey'

The Meaning of Friendsgiving

Tyler Kingkade | November 26, 2014 | College
Friendsgivings seems to me like a uniquely 20-something experience, in which unmarried young adults with no children get together to eat, unsure if they're on the right track since they can't afford to fly home for the holiday.

Sara Eckel | November 25, 2014 | Women
Singles are often grilled about their personal lives in a way their married relations rarely are. When was the last time your sister and brother-in-law were asked to defend their "married lifestyle" to a table of 12?

Mexico Is Running Out of Tears

Yoani Sanchez | November 25, 2014 | World
When I visited Mexico for the first time I was impressed by its tremendous potential and enormous problems. I was amazed by a culture whose calendar is lost in time, especially when compared to a Cuba that is still a teenager.

On "Meeting" Andy Cohen and Fear of Missing Documentation

Maria Tettamanti | November 25, 2014 | Miami
I just had an AHA! moment and felt the need to let you cool kids in on it, too. You see, recently, I went to my media hero Andy Cohen's second book launch for The Andy Cohen Diaries.

Stephen Wells | November 24, 2014 | Green
A breeding facility for thousands of monkeys linked with prior outbreaks of infectious diseases could soon be looming over the backyards of some southern Florida residents without holding a single public meeting.

Thank You, Miami Book Fair

J.J. Colagrande | November 25, 2014 | Miami
Words can barely describe the magnitude and production of the Miami Book Fair. But, then again, the Miami Book Fair International starts with just that: words.

America's Infrastructure Disinvestment Will Slow the Development of a Sustainable Economy

Steven Cohen | November 24, 2014 | Green
Throughout America, disinvestment in infrastructure is far more typical. America's focus seems to be on individual spending, not investment in community resources. We refuse to tax ourselves and the signs of neglect are everywhere.

Meatless Monday: Hey, Thanks (I'm Talking to YOU)

Ellen Kanner | November 24, 2014 | Green
Still, conjuring what you're grateful for is always worth doing, not just for the sake of going out into the day with a stupid-ass grin on your face, but because giving thanks is good for us.

A Talk With Fabio Viviani

Tara Solomon | November 25, 2014 | Miami
The opening party for Siena Tavern -- in the iconic 404 Washington Avenue space on South Beach, former home of China Grill -- was one of those crazy, eclectic parties where you saw people you haven't seen for years.

A Daughter's Plea to the Supreme Court: Let My Parents Keep Their Health Insurance

Arlene Brens | November 20, 2014 | Politics
I can't speak for everyone, but I can say that for my family, Obamacare has saved my parents' lives. I know that Obamacare is far from perfect. But instead of gutting a law that helps American families, why don't we make the law work better for all Americans?

Why Tip-Of-The-Tongue Syndrome Terrifies Me

Ann Brenoff | November 20, 2014 | Fifty
For the past few years, my husband and I have been engaged in a sort of memory-loss Olympics. We are constantly keeping track of who forgets more.

Yassou From Athens: Introducing HuffPost Greece

Arianna Huffington | November 22, 2014 | Media
For me, this is the ultimate homecoming, not only because this is where I and my accent were born but because HuffPost is very firmly rooted in a Greek tradition of bringing people together and facilitating interesting conversations.

Giancarlo Stanton and the Cash Flow

Julian McWilliams | November 20, 2014 | Sports
Giancarlo Stanton has signed the hugest contract in the history of baseball: 13 years and $325 million. The guy is only 25 years old and could easily make anyone his age really go through a "what the hell am I doing with my life" type of moment.

From Hypnos to the Heavenly Bed: A Brief History of Sleep

Arianna Huffington | November 18, 2014 | Healthy Living
Though the need for sleep has been a constant throughout human history, how we feel about it has gone through dramatic changes over the years. We're now in the process of renewing our estranged relationship, especially as science, in the last two decades or so, has validated much of the ancient wisdom about the importance of sleep. Now that we have the means to get, relative to most of human history, the most unprecedentedly blissful sleep ever, we should allow ourselves to enjoy it. We live in a time in which we're plugged in and hyperconnected, often from the moment we wake up until the instant we drift off. Let's savor and safeguard sleep, not just for its performance benefits but for the special way it allows us to connect with ourselves. During the daytime technology allows us to travel across distance and space, but during the nighttime our dreams allow us to travel across time, spanning and connecting different parts of ourselves, allowing our senses of intuition and wisdom to flourish.
