Anyone who has followed the so-called "breast cancer screening controversy" knows that the disagreements about whether and when healthy women should get a mammogram are more political than scientific.
There's no way to tell what will unfold when you start to do something, even the smallest thing. Actions grow and expand, sort of like the way our peas started out small, crawled past their trellises and are now getting tangled up into each other.
Here are some qualities to consider to create greater abundance: 1. Take personal responsibility -- "I create my own reality." 2. Commitment to y...
I admire people like Martin Luther King who spoke out for those who were afraid or unable to do so. His message today is as strong as ever, although I worry that much of the world does not seem to want to listen.
It is often a mystery to me as to why more people do not speak up for themselves and say what they want. I had the pleasure of interviewing Courtn...
The ruling by the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit is a potentially lethal blow to net neutrality -- the principle that the Internet should be available equally to anyone who wishes to use it as a medium for creativity and information, regardless of who they are and no matter the size of their checkbooks.
In my previous post, I've mentionned the burgeoning idea of a certain project of mine after I've attended a One Young World summit. Not only was my in...
I'm proud to live in a state that takes public health and environmental protections seriously and in many cases, leads the country. Now California has the opportunity to lead again.

Activist and author Saru Jayaraman, whom we feature on this weekend's Moyers & Company, talks about how Americans can easily and effectively support restaurant workers' fight for better conditions and a fair wage.
Recently I've been coming across messages from some of you who say you just want to give up -- there's so much going wrong in America and the world you feel overwhelmed and helpless. So I wanted to meet you here for a moment, face to face -- so to speak -- with a simple three-word response: get over it.
Hi Brave Young Warrior: I am your Battalion Buddy! I am here to cuddle and play with you while Mommy or Daddy is away! And my friends at Operation Gr...
It's simplicity itself: Give citizens access online to find out quickly and directly who's buying our elections. Hardly an unreasonable request, given how much cash the broadcasters make from their free use of the airwaves. But the broadcasting industry's response has been a simple, declarative "Not on your life!" It would cost too much money, they claim.
It's time for America to understand our situation, and make sure that our friends and family do as well. Our politicians and bankers play on our ignorance, since they think we won't know what they are doing. That ends now.
We seem to have devolved to a nation of six-year-olds, all too willing to get on the floor, the stage or the TV program, wailing and flailing as though that were going to fix anything.
I am distressed to learn that Borders books may be dumping books when closing its Waldenbooks Specialty Retail group.
