There are several reasons why celebrities -- and lay folk -- change their names. Norma Jean Baker became Marilyn Monroe, now synonymous with bombshell beauty. I present 14 celebrities who changed their names, and seven reasons why they may have done so.
It is foolhardy to reduce a complex human being to something as simplistic as race. Every child knows that one should not judge a book by its cover. Racial categories inevitably evaluate people based upon outward appearances.
It is often argued that prenuptial agreements reflect a lack of trust. However, we live in a trust but verify era of relationships as illustrated by numerous background check services.
Recently, I have been listening and watching with great interest to the self-proclaimed experts on Tiger Woods and his golfing career. Many of his critics have probably never picked up a golf club or, at best, are 18 handicappers at their local Muni.
After five years on the baseball beat Alison Gordon returned to real life and turned to fiction. She wrote murder mysteries set in the world of baseball and enjoyed considerable success. Sportsworld is now replete with women in all capacities and for that we owe a debt to Alison Gordon.
In 2011, in an interview with The Golf Channel, I predicted a Tiger Woods comeback while many others said he was done. I was right that time and I am right again, and I'll say it right now and on the record: Tiger Woods will be back again and dominate the game of golf like the Tiger of old.
"Whose team are you on anyway?" A question my husband might ask me, pointedly, after I've perhaps questioned a position he took as it stood against the morals of society, meaning, my family, or even his.

In a move designed to re-engage his handling of United States foreign policy, President Obama has appointed professional golfers Rory McIlroy, Phil Mi...
I write this piece following the ground work laid by W.E.B. Dubois's Veil of Double Consciousness. The veil he described was a visualization of racial duality. I now undertake the daunting task of clarifying the new veil of economics that has covered the struggles of a generation.
The golfing spotlight is back on Rory McIlroy and rightfully so. The 25-year-old Irish lad put on a stellar performance that left him holding the coveted Claret Jug on Sunday afternoon, and put to rest any doubts that he has emerged from his recent slump.

National Golf Day was May 21, 2014. There are so many great things about golf that extend far beyond the actual sport.
By Jerry Zezima As a guy who has always loved Mark Twain's definition of golf as "a good walk spoiled," I had never aspired to be the next Tiger Wood...
Being that golf is one of the most expensive sports to play, pricey items like golf clubs, attire, and greens fees often make the game cost-prohibitive for today's youth. Not surprisingly the National Golf Foundation has reported a precipitous decline in participation, threatening the game's future.
