To the Mother of My Patient

Kateri Allard | April 16, 2014 | Healthy Living
Because of you, I am beginning again to believe in miracles. Because in the depth of despair over losing your beloved son you took me into your arms and guided me back onto a track where love is real, positive thinking is a choice that saves us, and miracles do happen.

No-Kill Animal Sheltering Is Coming Soon to a Community Near You

Francis Battista | April 16, 2014 | Green
In the age of social media and the transparency of everything, traditional sheltering and animal control models that essentially amount to population control by the sanctioned killing of homeless pets just do not stand up to scrutiny.

Napoleon's definition of a military genius was "The man who can do the average thing when all those around him are going crazy." Rich people are similar. They remain normal when everyone else can't.

Despite warnings and near-constant reminders, many governments and first-responder agencies haven't thought thoroughly about communicating with the public during a crisis. In fact, most haven't even written a crisis communications plan.

What I Learned in My First Year as a Female Startup CEO

Yunha Kim | April 16, 2014 | Technology
If you are aggressive, you are a bitch. If you are emotional, you are PMSing. If you are soft, you are too feminine. Whatever way someone finds you, they can always justify it is because you are female.

Third Eye Blinded

Aryanna Prasad | April 16, 2014 | College
I grew up without an Indian mother or community, so there's a lot I don't know about being an Indian woman. But I did know the bindi held significance because my nani wore a simple red one every day.

Equal Pay for Equal Work a No-Brainer, Right?

Dr. Peggy Drexler | April 15, 2014 | Politics
Last Wednesday, Senate Republicans blocked -- for the third time -- the Paycheck Fairness Act, a bill proposing to close the pay gap between men and women. The goal of the bill -- the attainment of equal pay for equal work -- seems like a no-brainer, right? Women with the same job, and same qualifications, as men deserve to be paid the same. They do not deserve to be discriminated against in salary on the basis of gender. Seems obvious. And yet not a single Republican voted in favor of the Act, and many Americans no longer know what to think, either. The problem is that the message has been greatly muddled, twisted, and usurped, mostly for political gain.

Golden Opportunity From the Golden State

Hans Johnson | April 14, 2014 | Politics
It took cajoling for California to take a healthy step forward to help more people register to vote. It will take a chorus of community voices, now and in the weeks to come, to maximize the grassroots response and maintain the momentum.

Gun Violence Is a Public Health Issue -- Doctors Should Treat It That Way

Mike Weisser | April 14, 2014 | Politics
As so much of the current gun debate is generated by fear -- fear of crime, fear of violence, fear of government -- physicians should bring their clinical experiences in managing fear to this debate and thus provide patients with sound and effective alternatives to picking up a gun.

Dozing Through 'The Great Moving Right Show'

David Coates | April 14, 2014 | Politics
The greatest danger currently facing all of us in America, and particularly progressives, is one of drift. As an economy, the United States is drifting along a low-growth path that is acclimatizing all of us to levels of unemployment which only a decade ago would have been treated as an outrage. As a society, the United States is drifting towards levels of income and wealth inequality so large that, if left unchallenged, will soon become irreversible. And as a political system, the United States is drifting towards a Republican sweep of both the House and the Senate in November unless the democratic left acts now to reverse what is in truth a carefully orchestrated and heavily funded great moving right show. Those of us of a progressive predisposition are drifting towards a political defeat of historic proportions -- one underpinned by an economic and social settlement of a highly conservative kind -- and we are doing so with what would appear to be only the slightest sense of alarm.
