I perform cardiac arrest research and so I understand the heart fairly well. What I don't understand well, from a common sense stand point, is the granting process. There are many issues with the grant submission and funding award process that give me pause.
Throughout Obama's time in office, the administration has made huge strides in engaging Millennials. I am often asked by talent acquisition professionals, recruiters and organizational leaders how to build relationships with Millennials, especially using today's social media tools.
Productive discourse is dying, trampled over by closed minds who value comfortable opinion-holding over uncomfortable soul-searching. As dialogue lies flailing and gasping, outrage culture's pulse is stronger than ever.
One essential factor in building a more inclusive prosperity is giving all Americans easy ways to save for their retirement years. That's why I have been thrilled to work on the unveiling of myRA--"my Retirement Account"--a game changer that will help Americans begin to save for a safe and comfortable retirement.
Is it too much to ask the American political process to participate in something larger than itself -- something the size, perhaps, of human or planetary evolution? Perhaps this question is the starting point of the future.
Obama's lease is almost up at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.; however, his final SOTU wasn't about him, but rather about the future of the country.
As we get stronger as a movement, we have to be prepared to contend with a heightened push-back from super-rich. In the coming political combat, we will need all the help we can garner.
It's time for the Republican candidates to end their campaigns of hate. The bigoted rhetoric and policy positions we're hearing from these candidates go against core American values. They don't merit discussion at the kitchen table, and they certainly don't merit discussion at a debate for those aspiring to the nation's highest office.
At the heart of the Paris Agreement are 195 voluntary national pledges to reduce climate pollution. These pledges broke through decades of gridlock, but if fulfilled, get us only halfway to climate rescue.
Such treatment of these deeper currents is not just mistaken; it is dangerous, in part because if left unchallenged, it may triumph in the Presidential election by default.
It hit me as I rounded the bend of a running race here in the nation's capital on the eve of Martin Luther King Day--in a country painfully divided by...
As I listened to the President deliver a vintage Obama speech, I realized I was holding an article from the New York Times about Obama's plan to build/modernize (you choose the word) smaller, sleeker nuclear weapons.
I have this unsettling feeling of my being occupied. Life continues, seemingly with familiar fixings, but at the core, near the heart, not the esse...
This week was a study in contrasting visions for the country. On Tuesday, President Obama gave his last State of the Union address, inviting us to end the "rancor and suspicion" that have enveloped us. That invitation was soundly rejected two nights later in the Republican presidential debate, which featured little but rancor and suspicion: sniping about birtherism (Canadian style), "New York values," our military as "a disaster" and President Obama as "a petulant child." At one point, discussing Donald Trump's idea to ban Muslim immigrants, an incredulous Jeb Bush, sounding like an uncool dad failing to get through to a room of adolescents, pleaded, "we're running for the presidency of the United States here!" Indeed. A good time to remember the words Pope Francis spoke to Congress, which President Obama repeated on Tuesday: "To imitate the hatred and violence of tyrants and murderers is the best way to take their place."
A Tea Party star's State of the Union response ticks off the far right. More than once.
As the president noted in his State of the Union, the fact that the tone of politics hasn't changed is one of his lasting regrets. But "it takes two to tango" and from the performance of Trump and company, the other side doesn't appear ready to end the state of our dis-union.
