I was almost going to just put up my Jan 13th post again. That one was titled "Weak Bounce Wednesday" and we opened that d...
"Oh yeah, I got this," accompanied by a fist pump. Remember that first Monday in January, and your goal? Now, it's the beginning of February, the se...
Every year people wait with great anticipation for Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start of the summer season. Others count the days unti...
I recently had my own Groundhog Day scenario, but it wasn't about improving my physical health and wellness. I took part in a research project involving one-on-one interviews with Americans of all ages and backgrounds, to hear about their retirement plans and overall financial wellness.
Before I was a criminal defense lawyer, I was a prosecutor. Before I was a prosecutor I was the Senior Adviser for Government Reform for the Majority Conference in New York State Senate (the irony of the title considering the stream of corruption prosecutions and convictions since is not lost on me.)
Imagine you're the U.S. ambassador to Pakistan, and you've been tasked to draft a cable to prepare American officials in Washington for the visit of General Raheel Sharif, the Pakistani army chief who has arrived in town for a five-day trip.
Five years ago, on September 15, 2010, a group of mothers began a sit-in at Whittier Elementary School in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood. The mothers took this action only after trying unsuccessfully for years to get a library for their kids' school.
In the recent Republican Debate, Ohio Governor John Kasich commented that Donald Trump has struck a cord in America -- that people are angry and fed up. Since then, Trump has continued his ascent in the polls and the reality of this anger has set in.
Modernity is ubiquitous. There's little way of escaping it, unless you're convicted of something and become an uncooperative prisoner. Then you will be put in solitary confinement, still a widely used form of punishment, which has little to commend it beyond the fact that it so steadfastly avoids the notion of progress.
Hi, I'm Joey. A mom of four kiddos on an extreme weight loss journey and this is my day.
Every choice we make leads us closer to, or further away, from being the person we desire to be. The more conscious we are in the choices we make, the clearer we are on who we are. That's how powerful our freedom to choose is.
This morning at Gobbler's Knob, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton emerged from a hole and saw her shadow, signaling at least six more months will pass before she declares her candidacy for President.
What would you do if you were stuck in one place, and every day was exactly the same, and nothing you did mattered? You could raise some hell, mabe rob a bank or two and drink as much as you want without worrying about a hangover, or you could visit some of the filming locations from the movie Groundhog Day.
I feel a bit like the "astrologer version" of Punxsutawny Phil, the legendary groundhog in the movie Groundhog Day, who emerges each spring from his burrow to announce whether - weather conditions will be good or bad.
This week, the Oscar race heated up, with Birdman and Grand Budapest Hotel leading the way with nine nominations each. In much more serious news, the planet itself continues to heat up, with NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announcing that 2014 was the hottest year in the 135 years since record-keeping began. What's more, the next 10 hottest years have all been since 1998. "The record 2014 temperatures underscore the undeniable fact that we are witnessing, before our eyes, the effects of human-caused climate change," said climate scientist Michael Mann. Of course, we've seen this movie before -- with alarming warnings about our steadily warming world repeatedly met with inaction. It's like "Groundhog Day," only without the laughs. Unless we rewrite the script, and push our leaders to adopt the long-term thinking that this challenge requires, we'll soon be facing a [SPOILER ALERT] very unhappy ending.
