If you want to earn more "green," and make the world a more livable place for decades to come, look for investment opportunities of the same color in 2016.
16 sports poems, set against one another. Which will be crowned the winner? By Adrienne Raphel Basketball fans might be surprised that Kobe Bryant c...
The world has not been kind to Kobe Bryant's poem. The Black Mamba announced his retirement via ode the other day, and, in discussing it, almost everyone channeled their inner literary critic long enough for a potshot or two at Kobe's literary chops. We decided to try our hand at an alternate Kobe Bryant retirement poem, built from his own words.
It's crazy how players like Kobe Bryant are able to bring people together even half-way across the globe. I'll admit that I'm not the biggest Kobe or Laker fan (at least not as big as my dad is) but every time I read about Kobe, I am inspired to get better at my craft; it's hard not to be.
Kobe Bean Bryant has every opportunity to make the last 66 games count for more than a farewell. It's the final scene a great storyteller like Bryant was born to write.
The NBA MVP and Golden State will continue to get better every game. The Warriors won their 20th consecutive regular season game. They are the sixth team in league history to achieve this while extending their regular season home winning streak to 27 games.
When was the last time Kobe Bryant was still Kobe Bryant? It's a difficult and, for some, painful question to ask. As much as he tries, and dear god is he trying, Kobe isn't Kobe this year. Not even close.

I am writing this post flying back to the west coast after attending the 3rd Annual Conference, renamed Dyslexia and Innovation, run by The Dyslexic Advantage, the non-profit founded by the authors, and supported by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation.
Woo-woo or not, compassion is needed today more than ever, and perhaps mindfulness can help bring us there. Through Mumford's book, we can all learn to be Mindful Athletes in our day-to-day lives.
In the year since Thrive was published, I've been thrilled to meet people all over the world who are longing for change. People are rejecting the myth that burnout has to be the price we must pay for success. But again and again, I was asked, "It's hard to change old habits -- how do I go from understanding what I need to do in order to thrive to actually doing it?" That's why I'm so excited that I've partnered with the great team at Oprah.com to launch a six-week course on Thrive -- a bridge from knowing what we need to do in order to thrive to actually doing it and thriving!
The guy can still score, put butts in the seats at the Staples Center and has 32,482 career points. Maybe if the front office can put some pieces around him going into the final year of his contract, just maybe we will see Bryant go out on his own terms.
The Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant recently came out ripping AAU basketball while saying young players in Europe are much better prepared than their United States counterparts. 'AAU basketball,' answered Bryant when asked what's wrong with basketball in the United States.
I am not asking for anything next Christmas. Instead, I want you to give it all away. With the exception of Carmelo, everyone can go. After all it is the season of giving, right?
