A leisurely conversation-filled dinner with not a single phone on the table. Religion that was welcoming and inviting (and-not-even-a-tiny-bit-divisive). Morning greetings of "Wow, looking good!"

In the two years since the University of Alabama formally integrated their sororities, the decision has been regarded as a step in the right direction. However, what does this new integration actually look like?

Integration: What Does It Look Like in Someone's Life?

We live in an age of fragmentation: fragmented communities, fragmented lives, fragmented attention. Our ADHD world seems to pull us in many directions all at once, and the strain of multitasking our entire lives can leave us feeling exhausted, alienated, and dissatisfied.

The observations supported my hypothesis. But the cause still remained unknown. So I wondered to myself: If I can decipher the cause maybe I can figure out not only how to rejuvenate organizations, which I have proven I know how to do, but to retard the aging of people too.

Is Atticus Finch Still a Hero?

I can't help but wonder how many of the reviewers have simply contrived their headlines to grab our attention in a noisy and cluttered culture, and how many actually believe what they're saying, and are thus perhaps, like mockingbirds.

A large majority of the estimated 10-12 million Roma living in Europe, six million of them in the EU and the majority in Bulgaria, Czech Republic, and Romania, continue to face social-economic prejudice, exclusion from mainstream education and healthcare, intolerance, xenophobia and stigmatization.

One French Nation (Not) Under God

Do those who are debating in Paris about the length of Sarah's skirt realize the kind of message they are sending to the Muslim community? Do they realize that forcing people to choose between two sets of values could lead to pushing them away from the national community?

Integration Is the Open Secret to Deradicalization

The rise of violent extremism is only at the early stages, and if the West wants to stem the flow of volunteers to these ruthless groups, Western countries should make a concerted effort to engage and understand the nuances of their Muslim communities, especially the families from which these volunteers are coming.

The FHA wasn't passed to promote "separate but equal" as a second-best solution in housing policy; it was passed to end segregation, meaning that low-income housing opportunities must be created outside of segregated neighborhoods to provide more options for segregated residents.

Much like the great Sammy Davis, Jr., the unicycle ensemble from the South Bronx beat the naysayers and racists, as well as the pitfalls of their neighborhood with their talent. They achieved this while breaking down barriers and leaving a smooth trail of unicycle tracks for others, like myself, to follow.

Seducing the 'Enemies' Within

We fail to counteract the seductive narrative of violent extremism because we do not engage it on its own terms. We talk above it and around it, but not straight at it. Reducing our values to war cries in the mouths of statesmen is an ineffective way to bring those among us who might be seduced back into the fold.

Banks lived on Chicago's South Side. He often commuted to Cubs home games on the L train. He had no choice. Though he was the biggest name and biggest draw the Cubs had, he could not buy a home or rent an apartment in the neighborhood surrounding Wrigley Field.

The future of sport is going to involve athletes with and without disabilities competing in sports together. Sports traditionally designed for athletes with a disability present a tremendous opportunity to also open up to include all participants -- both those with or without a disability.
