Our ubiquitous social media are a game changer: having seen pictures of dead boys on a beach, we cannot un-see them.
If you're lucky enough to be planning a few beach days or weekend getaway and need a break from emails and news headlines, consider these reads that blend the personal with the political.
Isn't it strange that the GOP, the political party that has heretofore consistently and vociferously opposed frivolous lawsuits, spurious malpractice claims and the trail lawyers' lobby, has now decided to spend taxpayer money to hire trial lawyers to bring what is essentially a frivolous malpractice lawsuit against President Obama?
Over the last year I've subscribed to a number of YouTube channels that have consistently helped me identify new trends, understand best practices, and spot high-impact opportunities. Here is a list of my favorites.
I don't think an easy win for Hillary is automatically a good thing, even for her. But I also don't think it is that likely. If you look at the history of presidential politics in the modern era, the last half-century-plus, the strongly favored frontrunner almost never cruises easily to victory.
After receiving an undergraduate degree in Liberal Arts and an MBA from the University of Illinois in Champaign, Glory Gallucci worked in various busi...
The UN is as much stage as platform for diplomatic exchange, and the Kremlin is no longer so keen on keeping the curtain up.
If you don't like feminism, don't call yourself a feminist. But I have a hunch that when your brilliant little girl grows up and voices her desire to be president you are not going to tell her she should instead look for a man to open her jars -- you may even encourage her to call herself a feminist.
Do you know what happens when you live in New York and you type the words "why am" into Google? Before you can type the next word, Google's Autocomplete function helpfully offers to complete your thought. The first suggestion: "why am I so tired?" The second: "why am I always tired?" The Zeitgeist perfectly captured by Google. As the Belgian philosopher Pascal Chabot has put it, burnout is "civilization's disease." The thought of so many people hunched over their laptops or iPhones, asking Google, "Why am I so tired?" or "Why am I always tired?" is really sad. And the answer is not going to be given to us by an algorithm. But we can start by shutting off our devices and getting some sleep.
For years I avoided engaging in discussions about the Israel/Arab situation -- I just didn't want to deal with it. That all changed about three-and-a-half years ago when my parents moved to Jerusalem. Now my immediate family is there and my comfort in the ability to duck the debate vanished.
If we are going to have a discussion about Hillary Clinton's legal career, then let's be sure the whole story is told - one that explains both her commitment and her pioneering advocacy for abused children and the indigent in need of counsel.
When you examine the two sets of facts, the press treatment and the gaping media double standards in play for Giuliani and Clinton could not be more vivid: The D.C. press holds the Clintons, and Democrats, to a much tougher standard than they do Republican candidates.
Intentionally forgotten in the debate over what Hillary is paid is that the fees are donated directly to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, a non-profit organization that Bill Clinton started to do good in the world after he left the White House.
Today Diane Dunkley is the proud owner of RM2 Music, a music management company, booking agency and record company all rolled into one. The philosop...
Saujani is a self-proclaimed "Feminist with a capital F" and while she asks "Where are the women?," she definitely knows where they should be: EVERYWHERE.
Advising the accused is not a politically popular job. But it is a necessary one. To criticize defense attorneys, the chief checks against prosecutorial abuse, is to promote a judicial system of error by stigmatizing a key motivator for better prosecution.
