Over the last 12 months Cuba was visited by a pope, a secretary of state and even by Mick Jagger. However, the person who takes all the palms is not a politician, a religious leader or a rocker. It is a mobile application with a short name and a profound impact on our reality: IMO.
Companies are beginning to understand that they are uniquely positioned to scale up proven solutions to social and environmental problems, and that they have a role in addressing the challenges associated with poverty.
I am the worst secret keeper on the planet and therefore must confess I've been bewitched, beguiled, and bewildered by the magical town of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
There are plenty of reasons to consider a trip to Cuba and also a vacation in Puerto Rico or the Dominican Republic. But the experiences you'll have in Cuba, if you're a U.S. citizen, are likely very different from what you'll have on the other two islands.
Gender has always been on my mind -- or in my face -- whether I like it or not. As a budding feminist and then a young lesbian with short hair, I was called "Sir" on more than one occasion.

To argue, as critics do, that Plan Colombia was a failure and the source of challenges faced by the Colombian people over the past 15 years, is to neither understand Plan Colombia and its historical context, nor the realities of Colombia today.
Driving down Baja California, past the towering border wall and the ever-busy Tijuana, a surprisingly arresting view of the coast greets us. Miles o...
The images are indelible. A body washed up on a beach like sea glass, flotsam from an overcrowded boat. It is said that history has a way of repeating itself. And for me, these images -- this vocabulary -- recall a story that is more than 70 years old. That of the refugee ship, the St. Louis.
The trafficking of elephants in Africa has gained tremendous media attention. Not so the illegal trade in birds, amphibians, reptiles, mammals, and fish of Central and South America -- a problem of epidemic proportion.
You might question how a portrait sculptor who trained in fine art sculpture and used traditional techniques such as carving, modelling and casting, ended up using new technologies such as his iPad as a tool too carve out a new direction in the development of his artwork.
I've been asked many times what success will look like in Paris. Here's my scorecard and my predictions of five key elements that -- if all were achieved -- would constitute an exceptionally successful 21st Conference of the Parties:
