I make my living creating, enhancing and protecting brand reputations. That said, the ability of politicians and celebrities to reinvent themselves and make successful comebacks to public life never ceases to amaze me.
By Brian F. Martin and Kathleen Kendall-Tackett, Ph.D. A 16-year-old who grew up experiencing adversity in childhood said this to Brian Martin severa...
It's still possible that in the not-too-distant future, football will head over the cliff and begin its slow descent. Like empires and powerful civilizations, no industry or professional sport is immune from the vagaries of excess and overreach.
The predicted Snowmaggedon of 2015 never arrived in Princeton, but that does not matter much to me when I find myself sprawling face-down on the parking-lot concrete next to my car. I never even saw the black ice. I just screamed and tasted blood in my mouth after I hit the ground. My whole body hurts.
Domestic violence is a pervasive, complicated public health issue that requires an equally pervasive and multi-layered response.
Mueller and his firm are associated with the NFL, and, as a result, few bought the League's claim that the investigation would be totally "independent." Now the Mueller report has been issued and -- no surprise here -- the NFL's commissioner seems to have been telling the truth.
Over this past weekend, as millions of Americans gathered in their living rooms to watch the first round of games of this season's NFL playoffs, the organization No More continued to grab the national spotlight.
I would suggest that the NFL demand full copies of the investigation and the judge's rulings and demands that Winston answer questions posed by NFL lawyers before it authorizes the presence of Jameis Winston in the 2015 draft.
This year, Urban Outfitters sold a "vintage" Kent State sweatshirt tastefully splattered with red paint while Donald Sterling's racial comments cost him his NBA franchise. It's been a raucous year in the public arena, expressed perfectly by a parade of PR blunders that is as impressive in scope as it is in sheer absurdity.
A lack of robust and healthy sex education is a set-up for the worst sexual issues we can imagine in society. We need to celebrate the fact that sex comes in every style, and experts agree that there's a wide range of sexual feelings and acts worthy of exploration, as long as they're consensual and don't harm anyone.
It's the end of the year, which means endless end-of-the-year lists, especially for TV shows. And I didn't watch TV this year. Seriously. I cut the cable cord in 2008. Yes, I am superior to you, thanks for asking.
Overall research about domestic violence during holidays shows that the holidays do not cause domestic violence but also that domestic violence does not take a holiday either.
All three current topics that have placed the National Football League at the center stage of social debate in the United States -- violence against women (Ray Rice incident); abuse of children (Adrian Peterson incident); and concussions -- furnish yet further manifestation of the growing presence of what I have termed the "discourse of compassion" that has altered what is morally acceptable behavior in the United States.
The avalanche of stories related to the misdeeds of athletes tend to focus on one actor: the player.
"The fact that there is something fundamentally wrong with the way our society treats women is a proposition on which there is now general agreement," Yale Law School military justice expert Eugene R. Fidell recently told the New York Times. That's huge.
In response to the National Football League's (NFL) recently released revamped Personal Conduct Policy for players and other employees that was ratifi...
