When we think about about how to help others, we are motivated to excel in our jobs and our lives. We work harder for success when we know that our success can actually help. I really hope we can all learn to think this way.

George Heymont | November 24, 2014 | Arts
As a musical sampling of the sounds that emerged from Motown, one can't do better than starting with "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," "Bye Bye Baby," "I Heard It Through The Grapevine," and moving on through the catalog to "I'll Be There," "What's Going On," and "You Are The Sunshine of My Life."

Maura O'Neill | November 24, 2014 | San Francisco
While evictions tell only a small piece of the story, it's clear that San Francisco has contracted full-blown heart disease. San Francisco lost so much of its talent and spirit from the HIV virus back in the '80s and '90s. This time it is caused by an economic virus of success.

Uber's Legacy Hangs in the Balance: Digital Robber Baron or Respectable Innovator?

Vivek Wadhwa | November 21, 2014 | Business
Industrialists who built the railroads and core infrastructure in the 19th century exploited labor, corrupted governments, and built monopolies. Uber is also exploiting labor to some extent, but its disrepute is largely because of its arrogance and frat-boy behavior -- not only its business practices. And this behavior is only slowing the company down.
