I'd like to share the story of Kira Kazantsev, who was recently crowned Miss New York 2014 and who is raising public awareness about domestic violence.
This is one of those things that non-teachers don't entirely get. If you work in an office, time is pretty flexy. If a meeting can benefit by running an extra 10 or 15 minutes, you just do it.

Face facts, Truvada will be in everyone's bloodstream in about 15 minutes, so why argue over it? On two fronts we can assault this virus -- the POZ and the NEG, the dirty and the clean. Can we cut the crap and get in one line?
"The young father's enthusiasm was contagious. I guess he just wanted to let loose a bit. Thank you for sharing your passion for life, it made my night and everyone else's."
As discerning analysts like Nate Silver have been noticing, there's a particularly large gap between elite and popular opinion on marijuana policy. It's long past time to close that gap. Marijuana legalization is far from a risky position -- in fact, it's smart politics.
New Yorkers have a rare chance, through August 10, to see a full-cast production of David Edgar's intriguing Pentecost.
Now the Metropolitan Opera, my home for over 20 years of my 34-year career, is in the final hours of labor negotiations. We have been told there will be a lockout starting at midnight Thursday evening when the fiscal year closes.
If you live in New York City, at some point you've been approached by a suspiciously friendly person carrying a clipboard, asking if you "have a minute for [insert name of charity here]."

Loveable guitar slinger Jason Mraz released his latest album Yes! last week to both critical acclaim and good sales numbers.
