Since how we navigate this period will determine the second half of life, the stakes at midlife are high. If we've made the right choices, then ultimately we're not different from who we once were -- we're more authentic and real.
No, he owned up, no strings attached. He said he made a statement that turned out to be not true. He said he understood that it is scary to get a cancelation notice. And he apologized. Obama's apology gets full points for being unequivocal.
Reed Albergotti and Vanessa O'Connell were reporting on the triumphs and trials of cycling superstar Lance Armstrong for the Wall Street Journal and have just released Wheelmen, their blistering chronicle of Armstrong's career
As team mom for both my kids' teams, I was constantly spouting lessons about success only being achieved by hard work and practice. But, as we watched big-name player after big-name player face accusations of PED use -- with few consequences -- I could see I was losing my audience.
Gibney signed on to film Armstrong's comeback attempt in 2009, in which he supposedly was going to prove that he had won his previous championships cleanly, despite a blizzard of accusations saying otherwise.
My total net worth hovers around entering my piled up work expenses for the past three months, divided by bottles of wine drank last week, times bags of food bought for cat.
We are in the midst of a bumper crop of bio-docs: documentaries focused on single figures who have wound up on the wrong side of history and who seemingly want the chance to get their side of the story on the record.
These men, lost inside their hubris and narcissism, have stolen these narratives from our children. They leave us to explain what it all means while they continue to make us watch them.

History books may read far differently today if some of the most famous journeys inadvertently went left instead of right, north as opposed to south, or even down rather than up.
If all you know about cycling is that Lance Armstrong doped his way to seven titles, then you're missing out on an extraordinary sporting event.
From Lance Armstrong to the IRS, 2013 is already so rich with lessons to be learned from leadership failures, we decided to put together a few mid-year awards. We get at least as many helpful ideas about good leadership from failures as we do from successes, so these five should be particularly instructive.
The NCAA preaches ethics to its athletes because they are sending the message that the sport you play is greater than any individual, and that we are expected to maintain integrity for the game.
The Stanley Cup champion L.A. Kings opened the playoffs with a 2-1 overtime loss to St. Louis. Chicago and Anaheim came up winners on opening night.
In applying unjust enrichment a court considers the entire circumstances of a situation with an eye to fairness and the prevention of inappropriate conduct.

A frequent question I get is, "How's everyone at the Foundation doing?" The truth is, it's been rough. None of us anticipated the rapid and radical changes that are now the new normal. But we're dusting ourselves off and keeping the focus where it should be: helping people with cancer today.
