June 21, 2015 is the first United Nations International Day of Yoga. To celebrate this historic occasion, I traveled to Rishikesh, India, in early March to the International Yoga Festival to interview swamis and yoginis on the banks of the Ganges River.
Bravery comes in different shapes, sizes and forms. There is no need to compare bravery, because it's not to be compared. We all have our own battles, you shouldn't ridicule anyone for fighting them.
Mark Divine epitomizes what human beings are capable of if we can just harness the amazing power of our minds. This "Unbeatable Mind," as he calls it, is the key to mastery in life and business, and ultimately the key to long-term success.
Pentagon brass and their status quo supporters have engaged in a misinformation campaign claiming that New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's Military Justice Improvement Act is unnecessary and will in fact be counterproductive.
Most Americans lack any clear sense of what the military does; they certainly care less than they should; but what they are willing to do is to "salute" the troops by buying a beer in a red-white-and-blue can or putting a magnetic ribbon on their SUV as an expression of "support."

The violence inflicted on US soldiers is not always confined to a remote battlefield in a distant land from armed insurgents.
