America is great, and different, but it is becoming less exceptional, and at some point in the 21st century, it will not be exceptional at all.

One Reason Americans Get Ripped Off When They Travel

Paula McInerney

We recently spent two months in the USA, and trust me, tipping is a royal pain in the butt. To put this in context, we are Australian and we don't tip. Tipping is one of those practices we simply are not used to, but it is also one of the reasons Americans get ripped off when they travel.

Merry Carole Powers

So, looking at The Declaration of Independence and the character our country was founded on, does brand Trump align with brand America? No. At the very core of brand values, they are diametrically opposed. So how can it possibly be that so many Americans support him?

What Is The Future Of The American Middle Class In A World Where Manufacturing Can Be Easily Outsourced?

Quora | Posted 03.31.2016 | Politics
Quora

For me the answer about the "American middle class" starts with the recognition that versions of this question are being asked in every single country around the world. Obviously the rich-country version of the question is different from what people are asking in becoming-richer economies in Southeast Asia and Latin America, and in still mainly poor economies in parts of Africa and the Middle East.

The Solution to Stopping ISIS? Look in the Quran

Osaama Saifi | Posted 03.29.2016 | World
Osaama Saifi

Saying that the Qur'an is the real culprit of Belgian terror attacks would be the same as saying that the Bible is the real culprit behind the Spanish Inquisition. Both of these statements are false.

The Last Temptation Of America

John A. Tures | Posted 03.26.2016 | Religion
John A. Tures

This Easter, I hope you'll think about where we are, where we're going, and what we can do to, as Langston Hughes put it, "Let America be America again," instead of a path not so different from those biblical temptations.

The Ghost Vote: Giving a Voice to Those Who Lost Theirs to Gun Violence

James Barrett | Posted 03.25.2016 | Politics
James Barrett

Mass shootings and gun violence shouldn't be something that Americans are accustomed to seeing on television weekly, if not daily. Mass shootings will not be the next trending topic.

I might look different, speak a different language, hail from a different country, and see the world from a completely different perspective than he does. But none of that mattered to Sergio; what mattered is that we both share a common passion for music.

Catherine Nagle | Posted 03.22.2016 | Parents
Catherine Nagle

God bless First Mothers and First Ladies who continue to remind us how it can be done peacefully and with hope. This particular insight alone brings me much comfort, knowing that a mother's heart is closer to reaching the White House as president. This fact might very well be our American resurrection.

The era of "embarrassment" over Jewish "ghetto culture" is long over. A major effort is needed to go beyond one-week workshops and find a way to provide substantial support for offerings in traditional Jewish music and culture at all levels of Jewish and general education...and, if not now, when?

The great love of open roads ultimately leads most of us to pack our bags and start the ignition. As with everything in life you will have your own stories to tell soon enough, for sure, but making of those stories can either be fun or a whole lot of pain.

My son and I were driving and we saw a crash that had occurred just minutes before on the side of the road. I looked at the crash up close as I slowly passed and it was more than a fender bender. I quickly sensed there could be people trapped or hurt.

America's Quest for Greatness

Polls and pundits indicate that America has never been more polarized. Yet, there are also some striking commonalities among all presidential hopefuls in their understanding of the challenges, in their shared quest for greatness and in their failing to offer a path to achieving it.

In 2016, activism is finally cool again. For the Millennial generation who are coming of age in this election cycle, taking to the streets in protest for something you believe strongly in, is somewhat becoming a right of passage.
