In the wake of the shocking terrorist attacks on Paris, French President Francois Hollande embarked on a round of high-level summitry at the start of ...
A good manager should assess each person on the team as an individual and not bucket them into a group. A good manager works with each member of their team to identify their strengths and weaknesses and helps them succeed.
A few weeks ago, in the midst of the Greek crisis, a small team from a Greek Museum, the Museum of Cycladic Art, traveled from Athens to New York with a mission: to spread the story of a mystery.
Sometimes, a crisis strikes without warning. Sometimes, however, a crisis gathers more slowly and incrementally. Climate change is already a daily reality for my people, but without urgent global action to curb emissions, this growing crisis will spiral out of control.
We work so hard every day to build and sustain a tribe around us -- of relatives, of friends, of colleagues -- that we can't help but feel that unity threatened when a tragedy like Paris occurs.
The nations that need to work together are not working together. By not working together, they are undoing some of the advances that each other make, allowing ISIS to operate in the cracks and disagreements.
With Oktoberfest, the Berlin Wall, and beautiful cathedrals in every city, Germany is the perfect spot for any college traveler. Filled with culture and treasures found off the beaten path, Germany has plenty to enjoy, and with an insider's help, you can experience it all.
SONEPAT, India -- ISIS' manslaughter in Paris has placed on Muslims across the world the agonizing task of self-definition and self-explanation. It has placed Muslims in India in the doubly agonizing predicament of fearing a local backlash for what ISIS does as part of its global agenda. I do not believe intolerance will prevail in India. The people here are not stupid. But they live in a trapezium of wildly swinging emotions. And there, belligerents want to have their macabre fun, get their bloodied thrills.
As the majority of the world mourns, suspicion permeates as to why some acts of atrocity, which occurred almost simultaneously as the attacks in Paris, aren't receiving the same collective grief that now cocoons France.
Never once in my life did I think I would hear an actual explosion, nor did I expect to be in walking distance of a terrorist attack. No one ever plans for these things, nor are you ever really prepared. My experience in Paris reshaped the way I look at studying abroad. In no way will it stop me from traveling, but it will make go about it in a different way.
As Palms for Life Fund implements its second development project in Swaziland, we are constantly faced with questions that give us tremendous pause for thought.
Such massive disparities defy a simple explanation, but America's gun culture is clearly an important factor. Unlike European nations, most states make it easy for adults to purchase handguns for self-defense and to keep them handy at nearly all times.
These dismal, cowardly responses by our nation's leadership are reverberations of precisely what the perpetrators of the Paris attacks have sought: to trigger terror in the hearts and minds of ordinary people.
Fear is a powerful drug. Those who would act out of fear (and in some cases political opportunism and bigotry) have disregarded the lessons of WWII and the world's shame at the treatment of refugees, especially Jewish refugees, who were turned away and sent back to death at the hands of the Nazis.
Europe needs a common energy policy that is capable of meeting the challenges of competitiveness, environmental sustainability and security of supply.
It's really quite fun and simple. You can see results right away: you just focus on a virtue (like courage, resourcefulness, friendliness or wonder), cook up an appropriate recipe that reinforces that virtue and make the idea sizzle and stick.
