Sure, I will probably regret the decision when the Starbucks barista knows me by name, but I know the reward at the end -- clicking that "print" button and watching the printer spits out pages after pages of my written work -- will more than make up for the dark circles under the eyes.
Everyone knows Larry is brilliant, but what we've come to learn over years of working with him is how invested he is in the success of those around him. And as two women interested in economics and politics, we can assure you that there is no stronger advocate for our potential than Larry Summers.
What should a president do to become an effective fundraiser? How does one live in the spotlight of the presidency?
Summers should not be given another role in which his self-importance can threaten the welfare of the people he should be serving. He has proved too many times that he cannot stop playing to win the smartness game, no matter how great the risk of collateral damage.

For years, I'd always wondered: if I met a master of Buddhism, what might I say? How might I act? I'd never contemplated that my chihuahua might be present. Or that the master might be His Holiness himself -- the Dalai Lama.
While I know that we can't all afford to move to the pristine wilderness (and that it would quickly stop being pristine!) there are still steps we can all take to make ourselves, our future children, and our environments cleaner.
Don't be surprised if Hillary Clinton announces her historic candidacy for the presidency of the United States just five days after our nation celebrates its birthday and its independence in the City of Brotherly Love.
Annual board elections are a progressive approach and best practice to board governance.
In tribute to the popularity of chocolate as a substitute for tea in the Colonies following the Boston Tea Party, I suggest that we raise some chocolate to toast American Independence.
Now that commencement season has pretty much wrapped up, private universities are scrambling to fill those empty seats. They're giving record tuition ...
