We Each Have Two Lives. The Second Begins When We Realize We Have Only One

Rabbi Arthur Waskow | October 6, 2015 | Religion
Can't I be even a teeny bit resentful that I do all these good deeds, behave in all the right ways, and God (whatever and whoever that is) didn't see fit to save my son's life?

Billion Oyster Project

Peter Neill | October 6, 2015 | Green
There was a time, not so long ago, when the oyster was poor man's subsistence food, cheap, available and plentiful, and eaten more often than not because one could not afford anything else.

Lack of Pinstripe Pride: CC Sabathia's Rehab Announcement Shows Social Media at its Worst

Jesse Andreozzi | October 6, 2015 | Sports
When you belittle Sabathia himself, safe in the anonymity that the Internet provides, you are truly exposing yourself as a disrespectful coward, hating on someone in the midst of making the toughest decision of their life.

Jane Seo | October 6, 2015 | Taste
It's not every day that you get to try food prepared by a Top Chef winner. But attendees at this year's Plate by Plate got to do just that when Chef Hung Huynh, the winner of Top Chef Season 3, served them an exclusive dish for the evening's tasting benefit.

The Zombies Still Got That Hunger for New York City

Tom Semioli | October 6, 2015 | New York
Unlike the baroque trappings of their 1968 Odessey & Oracle masterpiece, Still Got That Hunger harkens back to the early days of a young, hungry St. Albans, Hertfordshire ensemble who submerged themselves in American music.

Fast Fashion Giant Needs to Move Faster for Worker Safety

Judy Gearhart | October 6, 2015 | Impact
H&M has fallen behind schedule on securing life-saving safety upgrades in their Bangladeshi supplier factories. Such delays are risky for a company that saw 21 workers killed in a fire at their supplier, Garib & Garib, in 2010. H&M is the largest buyer in Bangladesh, and with great power comes great responsibility.

There's not much to see in Korsa K. Nzidee's office because he's just moved into it.

An Apology to NYC

Jennifer Lovy | October 5, 2015 | New York
After spending a long weekend on your little island, yes, I saw people living on the street, smelled garbage and came across a few individuals telling the masses why we were going to go to hell. But it was not enough to ruin your reputation.

Food Design in the Southern Hemisphere

Fabio Parasecoli | October 5, 2015 | Taste
A whole informal economy is built around the basic necessity of food, reacting to and taking advantage of the interstitial spaces where the government control and order are absent or weak.

There's Always Next Year

Craig E. Sherman | October 5, 2015 | Sports
As the 2015 Mets clinched the division title, their first in nine years, a drought similar to the one I experienced as a young boy, I can't help but look back and wonder, "Why did I become a Mets fan?"

A Well-Deserved Honor for Mayor David Dinkins

Steven Cohen | October 5, 2015 | Politics
David Dinkins represents a time when public service was considered a calling. From his service in the U.S. Marines, to his time in the New York State legislature, his service as New York City Clerk, Borough President, Mayor and now Professor; he has always looked for ways to make a contribution to the public good.

Asian Americans are the fastest growing immigrant group in the country and will comprise the largest immigrant population in the nation in several decades. You wouldn't know these facts if listening to the Republican candidates on the campaign trail.

What If After 9/11 a Bush Shrugged and Said 'Stuff Happens'?

Mark Green | October 4, 2015 | Politics
Guns kill as many Americans every five weeks as did 9/11 -- yet Jeb Bush concludes after the Oregon massacre that nothing can or should be done. Lowry agrees while Reagan doesn't, citing his father. Then they debate Boehner, McCarthy, Planned Parenthood, Syria and Trump.

Shouting 'Gun Control' Across The Atlantic Isn't Going To Save A Single American Life

Paul Vale | October 5, 2015 | UK
It's an easy answer and wholly unsatisfactory. Democratic America is what it chooses to be, but the issue is so aged, politicised and now polarised that banning guns is not only impossible, it would likely do little to stop the type of bloodshed witnessed last week in Roseburg.

With reforms like these who'll be surprised by the next high-profile incident of police abuse? Not me.

"¡Vivos se los llevaron! ¡Vivos los queremos!" These words echoed around the globe this past weekend, as September 26 marked one year since 43 students were forcefully disappeared by government authorities in Guerrero, Mexico.

Why I March! #JusticeOrElse

Russell Simmons | October 2, 2015 | Politics
We have little time to argue over the man or one individual, when our people are dying every day, at the hands of our system or at the hands of each other.
