Sincerity of Purpose

PJ Mintner | Posted 11.28.2012 | College
PJ Mintner

If a fraternity is not about mutual respect, then they are not a fraternity. If a chapter doesn't honor cognitive dissonance, they're just another student group on campus, and likely one of the student groups you shouldn't want to associate with.

Stuart Muszynski | Posted 11.24.2012 | Business
Stuart Muszynski

I believe the trend to disconnect ourselves from human consequences while focusing on numbers only is as potentially destructive to the future of businesses that depend on customer relationships as it has been to the political process

Rev. Peter Morales

We are all values voters. Our values come from the core teachings of our various religious traditions. We share a core set of religious beliefs and values that should guide our votes in this election and in every election.

Making This a Wave Election

The Democratic argument is winning. It is winning both because it makes more logical sense, but because it resonates with American values of a community and family where we help each other make it.

Embassy Attacks Spotlight Social Responsibility

Therese Rowley, Ph.D. | Posted 11.17.2012 | Healthy Living
Therese Rowley, Ph.D.

We are no longer only part of our family, neighborhood and local political ward. Social media links us to a worldwide family to which we must be responsible, or suffer an increasingly war-filled, global consequence.

Finding God in the Party Platforms

Sen. Chris Coons | Posted 11.13.2012 | Politics
Sen. Chris Coons

What matters is whether the platform shows an intention to honor God's call for action that we care for each other as neighbors and work to heal the sick, feed the hungry and protect those in need. The Democratic platform fully embraces those values, but they are hard to find in the Republican platform.

For all the functional objects schools might request, the most crucial tools for your child are not physically tangible all, but rather values that will influence every moment of the school day -- and not only for them.

A Different Kind Of Transparency

Andrew Z. Cohen | Posted 10.23.2012 | Religion
Andrew Z. Cohen

It's easy for me to be transparent about who I am these days because I stopped experiencing the need to pretend or to live up to others' expectations a long time ago. Indeed, it's a big relief to be able to be an open book.

Why do people hate? When does hurt turn to rage and then to violence? How can we stop intolerance and encourage love? And, finally, how can we stop the perpetrators before they act out?

Singles: Remember Your Value

Tanya Martin | Posted 10.03.2012 | Healthy Living
Tanya Martin

Ladies, you must never think of yourself as an overstock. Yes, you may look around and it seems that there are so many single women and few single men available. However, you should never lower your standards in hopes of getting married quicker.

Thinking About Values in Tension

Jacqueline Novogratz

I see a growing number of corporations, non-profits, governments and start-up companies asking themselves the hard questions about how to balance their short-term business issues with long-term institutional values, even when this does not yield easy answers.

Does Getting Older Make You Meaner?

The Huffington Post | Ann Brenoff | Posted 07.25.2012 | Fifty

According to some social scientists, the older we get, the more our personal ethics matter. It probably has something to do with the desire most of us...

How To Shed The Baggage Of Your Past

Lisa Firestone | Posted 09.24.2012 | Healthy Living
Lisa Firestone

What gives a person's life meaning is unique to every individual. At one point or another, most of us find ourselves asking if we are truly living a life that is meaningful to us. In other words, are we really living the life we are meant to lead?

What Joe Paterno and Friends Can Teach Us About 'Winning'

Stuart Muszynski | Posted 09.17.2012 | College
Stuart Muszynski

I believe that what happened at Penn State runs deep in American culture, and similar breaches will occur until America creates a culture where the value of doing the right thing is ingrained within education and business.

The Reinvention Movement: It's Happening Everywhere

Russell C. Smith | Posted 07.17.2012 | Technology
Russell C. Smith

There are as many reasons to reinvent oneself, one's career, one's place in the world, the company one works for, the country one lives in, as there are people on Earth.

Do Politics and Yoga Mix?

Donnie Fowler | Posted 09.12.2012 | Healthy Living
Donnie Fowler

Like yoga, your democracy doesn't have even a chance to work if you just lie there. It's also not realistic to expect politics to put its proverbial foot behind its head every time there's an election or a vote in a legislature. But change does indeed happen.

Waldo Mellon

I'm inviting you to play a fabulous game I've devised. The rules are simple. I'm going to give you an imaginary shovel. And then I am going to present to you an imaginary table, upon which I'm going to place different sets of imaginary things, one of which you must smash with said shovel.

America as Re-run: Losing Andy Griffith Without Losing Our Way

Stuart Muszynski | Posted 09.10.2012 | Home
Stuart Muszynski

If we just leave this question to the media, we deserve what we get. All of us must be concerned about our media diet and its powerful link to our cultural health, and we should be crying out to Hollywood to right the picture.

How to Raise Good (and Safe) Kids These Days

Dr. Jim Taylor | Posted 09.09.2012 | Parents
Dr. Jim Taylor

This is a question that all parents ask themselves... constantly. There are no easy answers and, realistically, there is probably not one single answer. The important thing for parents is to at least ask and try to answer the question for their own family.

Interdependence Day

Christopher Holshek | Posted 07.02.2012 | Politics
Christopher Holshek

In the 21st century, we stand more to gain through interdependence than independence. In fact, the paradox is that we can preserve the latter by engaging in the former.

The Purpose of Business Is a Business of Purpose

Somik Raha | Posted 08.08.2012 | Business
Somik Raha

Business strategy that focuses exclusively on the head while ignoring the heart won't work, for it becomes dry and lacks the motivating power to inspire people to dream up amazing ideas and make them happen.

Susan Smalley, Ph.D.

I've learned not to think there's always a right and wrong course of action immediately evident. It can be important to observe and explore one's thoughts and feelings around a moral decision -- however big or small.
