As you read through the liner notes for Walt Disney Record's Legacy Collection version of The Little Mermaid soundtrack, there's an anecdote in there that's sure to blow pop culture fans' minds.
Who are the people of The New Mainstream? What do they want? What do they know? What are the economic, social and political implications of this rapid...
The domination, killing, destruction, increased work and effort of modern society are not the hallmarks of intelligence, but rather stupidity. How can we use the 10% of our mental capacity more intelligently and effectively? Here are a few ideas:
If you're as excited as we are for the November release of "Dumb and Dumber To," you're going to want to check out our exclusive interview with the ...
So if we all have big, wild dreams, why are so few people actively working towards those dreams Why, you might ask? Because we are all given some pretty crappy advice.
