Growing up in Princeton, New Jersey, I was allowed to walk up to the end of our short dead-end street and through my grandparents' backyard to knock on the door of Albert Einstein's house. When I arrived at Einstein's door, he welcomed me in.
Being an artist in all its multiplicities of characteristics and talents, is among the most demanding of all demands that we can make of ourselves. We have entered a universe of complexity and simplicity, discovery and delusion. It will never finish. It will never be entirely revealed.
Unearthed! Isaac Asimov's private letter to a U.S. military research project back in the 1950s -- how can the military be creative and come up with the best fresh ideas to help defend America from a ballistic missile attack?
Shifting from autobiography to biography, Fry breathes fresh life into one of history's greatest minds (much like Val Kilmer's brilliant channeling of Mark Twain) with the funny, touching, and intimate, Einstein! at Hollywood's Lounge Theatre Fridays and Saturdays through November 22.
I do believe there are instances when titles and labels aren't necessary. However, when it comes to letting go and healing matters of the heart, I believe titles and labels are a must.
Like his son, Einstein's father excelled at math but unlike Albert, he pursued a career in business, following in the very successful footsteps of his...

Whether you are looking to ensure your children's safety and future, or dictate how much of your earnings go back into the tax system, writing a will is an essential action and we can all benefit from taking advice from a genius like Einstein here.
"In 1914 the Great War began... and has lasted ever since." This quote can be found at the DOX Center for Contemporary Art in Prague the capital of the 'heart of Europe.'

I was perched high on my soapbox, having a good ol' internal harangue and feeling quite smug, when I heard that still, small voice that thinks it knows everything.
To some, fear is a motivator, to others a sales tactic and to still others, a sign of weakness. Ironically, that sentence is equally true when the word "fear" is replaced with the word "hope."
Recently I watched the Universal Pictures movie Lucy, written and directed by Luc Besson, starring Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman. When asked about my opinion on the science in this movie, I have more than just one or two sentences to share this time.
Down in Princeton, there is a shop that holds a true gem--the only Einstein museum in America. Einstein at his citizenship ceremony in Trent...
Technology is like any tool -- its impact depends on its application. I have immediate access to more information than Einstein had in his entire lifetime -- and yet, somehow I feel that if he were alive, he would advocate long stretches removed from the distraction of constant inundation.
