How to Talk to an Artist

Dana Sitar | July 22, 2014 | Healthy Living
As a universally misunderstood lot, artists tend to hate talking to people. Whether you're in the industry or a layperson, our best friend, family member, or colleague, we don't want to talk to you. It's not because of rampant introversion or elitism in creative people. It's because you're not good at talking to us.

Cuban-Americans supplied not just votes, but candidates for the GOP. But now there is survey evidence that the group is split between the GOP and Democrats. The question is no longer if, but why.

Why Aren't Child Migrants Fleeing to the U.S. From Nicaragua?

Alex Nowrasteh | July 16, 2014 | World
Explaining why Nicaraguan unaccompanied children migrants are not part of the recent surge may help explain why so many are coming from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras -- the so-called Northern Triangle. Nicaragua has low rates of violent crime, gang membership, and fewer family connections to the United States than the Northern Triangle.

Dan Revich | July 16, 2014 | Politics
The floor felt like solid concrete with no softness or give. The room was long and narrow, angling to a point at the end. The ceilings about 12 feet high. Suddenly, one of the sleeping men lying below the bench pushed my blanket away.

Chip Bergh | July 15, 2014 | Business
After a recent public talk, I shocked the crowd by admitting that the Levi's jeans I was wearing that day "hadn't seen the inside of a washing machine." Now, everywhere I go, the first thing people say to me is "Oh, you're the guy who never washes his jeans!"
