What Is Luxury Travel and Who Calls The Shots?

Dane Steele Green | Posted 09.22.2016 | Travel

This is one of those cases where a term is used so often that it loses its meaning: "luxury travel." Almost anything today can be "luxury": travel, cars, apartments, food, spirits, clothes, Jacuzzis, rehab centers, and on Airbnb I found a listing described as a "luxury church." Thomas Aquinas is spinning in his grave on that one.

I trust Hillary because she is smart, determined, and qualified to be president. I trust her because no one has ever been able to show me how any of her alleged transgressions came from a place of evil intent or even actionable negligence.

Dear Male "Heroes"

I suspect that the author of this article was trying to show support for the survivor in his own way, and I respect his attempt. However, as a society, it's important that we all examine our own preconceived attitudes about sexual assault, and we must think about how our attitudes can be harmful to survivors.

If we continue to allow fear to keep us from sharing ourselves and our truths with the world, we will always be trapped under the oppressive opinions of others, opinions that don't serve us but instead cage us.

For Evil to Prevail

David Katz, M.D. | Posted 05.02.2016 | Healthy Living
David Katz, M.D.

Whatever the intrinsic drama, though, and however often it need not apply -- there is, of course, evil in the world. There is avarice. There is corruption. There is exploitation. Anyone not holding such things to be self-evident, is evidently not paying attention.

I Make No Apologies for Wanting More Than Two Children

Ashleigh Wright Haslinger

The choice to have children, for many couples, is a major decision and not taken lightly. Many couples also have some kind of idea of how many little ones they want to have, however, that number can change over time. And I've come to realize that there is no right position to be in when it comes to this topic.

Someone posts about a book they've just read. They say, "Best book I've read in ages! Loved it!" Wanna give good Facebook? Here's what you don't say: "Oh, yes! I read it galleys last year and I just knew it was going to be a success when it was made available to the public at large!" Awful.
