Almost 100 years ago, on November 25, 1915, Albert Einstein presented to the Prussian Academy of Sciences the final version of his general theory of relativity, which also became the standard theory of gravity.
Here's an excerpt from an email I wrote to one client as to what it takes to be open to the miraculous and in so doing, to experience more miracles in your life:
We can expect the right-wing echo chamber -- including Fox News hosts, Tea Party politicians, and Rush Limbaugh -- to attack Sanders for espousing an ideology that they'll likely describe as foreign, European, and un-American. But Sanders's views are in sync with a longstanding American socialist tradition.
Life is ephemeral. Liberty is fickle. And without the first two, all the wealth in the world does not amount to much. But happiness is not dictated by external circumstances; it is guided by inner purpose. It is not luck; it is a choice.
Boo is sweet term, but bae is something else altogether. Before anyone else. That's serious talk. Who is your before anyone else? Would my bae be my son? My husband? It took a few moments, but I realized that my bae is my God.
Today, we're going to explore the working processes of three of the world's most creative people: Pablo Picasso, Stephen King and Albert Einstein -- and learn how you can apply their creativity secrets directly to your own life.
Much of the marketing that is done is based on conjecture with little application of knowledge or bona fide data. Marketers, who never really learned marketing deeply enough, base their judgments on their opinions, which are too often shaped by misconceptions.
Saturday, March 14, would have been Einstein's birthday. Looking through my Dad's stuff, I came across this photo, which reminded me of all the happy...
If the spa industry truly wants to recoup the revenue that keeps walking out of the door, then maybe it's time to try something new.
Primary and secondary education is a time for students to mature and find what they love and are good at, a time to find what they want to invest their time and hard work into, not a time to find they are not any good at filling in bubbles.
Every day we hear about ways to become happier or stress-free. This person says try yoga, that person says meditate. However, as an Oxford graduate, I've learned there are simple steps to finding success in life.
A new study by Yale researchers attempts to create categories of likely future shooting victims in Chicago and thus determine who among us is most in danger. But in the process the study, at least as it was reported in the Chicago Sun-Times, utterly depersonalized the potential victims, along with their communities, reducing them to components in a mathematical formula.
In January 2015, I read more about Steve Jobs and also the development of Bill Gates. I read an obituary about Charles Townes, the father of the laser (who died at age 99). I saw a fine film about Alan Turing, the mathematician who broke the Enigma Code during World War II.
As a travel writer open and game to exploring the offbeat and oddball within a few hours or one day's drive of New York City (Virginia to Maine), I've stumbled on some pretty bizarre, eccentric and/or downright weird things. Here's just a sampling from this year's explorations.
Sunday's event in Paris in response to this reality was incredible and unprecedented: millions of people coming together in the name of unity. Perhaps its most important aspect was to show us that our world leaders can indeed walk hand-in-hand together in common cause.
