When Grub ran into Danny Meyer at this year's MoMA Party in the Garden, we asked him, of course, about the state of his no-tipping policy and the difficulties faced by his fellow restaurateurs making the change.

This Is Infertility

Caroline Harries | Posted 04.28.2016 | Women

It's having your desires and dreams since a little girl put on hold. It's lots of tears. It's lots of pain. It's lots of heartache. This is infertility.

Why We Need Advent

Shannon Craig Straw | Posted 12.21.2016 | Religion
Shannon Craig Straw

It's because of our own expectations that we need Advent - not a time to wait for the gift we think we want, but a time to prepare to receive the gift we need, the gift of love and hope that comes with the baby savior, even if all he can do is just look back with a gassy smile.

The Dubai Film Fest Diaries 2015: Why Naseeruddin Shah Is Worth Waiting For!

E. Nina Rothe | Posted 12.13.2016 | Entertainment
E. Nina Rothe

What a beautiful film, what wondrous performances, what a perfect way to describe tragedy and its aftermath for the survivors, without dwelling in pathos or finding a simple way out of its inevitable ending. You know, just so everything can be tidy and easy, as a less talented filmmaker would have done.

Susan Krauss Whitbourne

Midlife seems to put us in situations that demand multitasking. Whether you're fixing dinner and need to make a late phone call or have to juggle the competing demands of a job that forces you to monitor emails and clients, you're pretty much forced to divide your mental bandwidth into portions.

What Are You Waiting For?

Caitlin Grace | Posted 09.03.2016 | Healthy Living
Caitlin Grace

Now, don't get me wrong, having things to look forward to and be excited about is great, but at the same time we are missing being fully present in this moment, right now. At the same time we also put off doing the things that we love because we figure that we have plenty of time.

Playing the Waiting Game

We only have one life to live. And though waiting may take up a great deal of it, we hope and pray the waiting will reap its benefits. We'll just have to throw the dice and pray for the best. We'll never know otherwise.

Mary DeTurris Poust | Posted 02.01.2015 | Religion
Mary DeTurris Poust

Advent is about waiting, a concept that's becoming increasingly unpopular in our world of instant gratification and constant connectedness. We want what we want and we want it now. Advent reminds us that waiting can be a good thing, a time to prepare ourselves.

Advent: Into the Silence

Rev. Dr. Mae Elise Cannon | Posted 01.31.2015 | Religion
Rev. Dr. Mae Elise Cannon

My prayer -- for myself and others -- is that we might all have some quiet to reflect upon the true purpose of the Advent Season. I am reminded of what it must have been like for the ancient followers of God, awaiting the coming of the Messiah.

For the duration of their little lives, my children have watched videos on Netflix and Amazon. They have never had to sit through TV commercials.

Why I Stopped Waiting

Susannah Lewis | Posted 11.10.2014 | Parents
Susannah Lewis

We wait for a holiday, a vacation, a break, a change. We sigh, we tap our foot, we moan about long lines, days of the week, seconds on the clock. We wait and we wait, and we don't realize that in the grand scheme of things, all of this slow waiting is hiding the fact that time is flying.

I left the message in the "Drafts" folder and within a day or two, found I felt absolutely no need to reply to the email. All that steam had evaporated; I didn't care.

Patience Is Painful

Robert C. Jameson

If I'm truly present, then I'm experiencing the bliss of the moment. There isn't any anywhere to go but this very moment. There's nothing to wait for. It's in this moment that I can take action steps toward my goal, and if I'm present in this moment, each action step can be filled with joy and peace.

Ellie has spent most of her life waiting patiently. But this time, she is the one who will go first. And while she waits, we will wait with her.

If by age 9, my daughter already has a Kindle Fire, access to an iPad and has been to New York City twice and on and on, what is left for her to experience when she is older? Am I somehow setting her up for crushing disappointment?

Reduce Behavior Problems: Teach Students to Wait

Jessica Minahan | Posted 06.10.2013 | Parents
Jessica Minahan

Some students aren't able to wait. If we don't recognize "waiting" as an underdeveloped skill in these students, we miss the opportunity to support them while they wait, prevent behavior incidents and, most important, set them up for success in school.
