Tiger Woods Is Finished

David Macaray | June 26, 2016 | Sports
If Tiger lives to the ripe old age of 90, it means he has ahead of him a half-century of time to kill. My recommendation? Move to Las Vegas and become a celebrity greeter at one of the casinos.

My Q And A With Former WNBA Player Michelle Brooke-Marciniak On The Sports-Sleep Connection

Arianna Huffington | June 24, 2016 | Healthy Living
The glamorization of sleep deprivation is deeply embedded in our culture. Everywhere you turn, sleep deprivation is celebrated, from "You snooze, you lose" to highly burned out people boasting, "I'll sleep when I'm dead." But perhaps those who equate sleep with laziness or lack of dedication can be convinced of the benefits of sleep by looking at what's going on in a world that is the ultimate in pragmatism, where performance and winning are everything: sports. Take Michelle Brooke-Marciniak, an All-American collegiate basketball player at the University of Tennessee who was once named the Final Four's MVP. She went on to play in the WNBA, and then brought her understanding of the link between sleep and performance to the world of business, co-founding the sleepwear and bedding company SHEEX in 2007. In answer to my questions, she shared her insights on how being an athlete has informed her experience as an entrepreneur.

Although the United States is slowly catching up to the rest of the world in terms of overall popularity, soccer clearly has a rich history and global influence. All this said, is this influence positive or does it pull us apart?

Nicholas Mariano | June 23, 2016 | Sports
Trading is a very old practice. Offering X for Y and bartering is in our DNA, and can even be observed in animals. While we often write about how to have the best draft, which players to add and drop, and even who to trade for, we rarely get into how to be an effective trader.
