Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner | September 28, 2016 | Politics
Hillary is wining and as she does it she's bringing all of us to the table -- and she's putting critically important policies that are too often overlooked and which lift our economy and our families front and center on the national agenda where they belong.

I Meet the Legendary Classic

Supercar Advocates | September 28, 2016 | Entertainment
21 September 2016 was the day I encountered, what they call, a legendary classic - the 1985 Ferrari Testarossa. It was the first time I laid eyes on this rare and stunning 80's babe and just like her decade she was glamorous, stylish...

A Woman in Politics

Melissa DeCastro | September 28, 2016 | Politics
It is too broad a sweep to discuss all women in politics in short form writing. I am however a woman in politics and it is particularly worth discussing how being a woman in politics affects my life, my choices, my family, and the decisions I ultimately make when I am sitting in board rooms and courthouses discussing decisions that will affect the future. I have always been political.

John A. Powell | September 28, 2016 | Politics
"Implicit" bias refers to associations that are not fully conscious. We could not survive if all our decisions were completely subject to the conscious mind. Because the mind processes so much information, the brain has evolved to look for short cuts.

Kerry Foreman | September 28, 2016 | Parents
Every year I run a conflict resolution station at the 5th grade retreat for a local school. The first thing I ask is for them to tell me what words come to mind when I say the word conflict. Every year, all the adjectives are negative.

The Perfect Storm: Zika, Trott And Trump

Brian Stone | September 28, 2016 | Politics
Candidates like Trott and Trump may be a perfect storm for a Zika health crisis, but voters are the hurricane everyone should be looking at. Continued inaction on Zika is a losing issue with the voting public.

Have You Lost Faith in Clinton and Trump? Go Local.

Henry G. Brinton | September 28, 2016 | Religion
Our unhappiness with national politics should not cause us to give up hope. These days, most positive political activity is close to home, where communities actually improve when clergy, congregation members, and elected officials work together for the common good.

The Largest Voting Bloc in the United States Needs to Unify

Jay Ruderman | September 28, 2016 | Politics
The day that America should realize that disability rights are civil rights has arrived. It is not too late for the disability community to band together and make their unified voice heard. The time has come for all Americans with disabilities and their families to demand that their rights be honored by our elected officials who are on the ballot this coming November.

Barbara Waxman | September 28, 2016 | Fifty
As a coach and gerontologist, I'm constantly exposed to stories from the modern workplace. Again and again, my clients tell me about the culture of ageism. These days, it seems like anyone over 40 is made to believe that their best years...

Kirschnereit's Handel Like Glenn Gould's Bach, JJ Froberger's James Bond Life, John Dowland's Crying Heart, and the Sins of Domenico Scarlatti

Laurence Vittes | September 28, 2016 | Arts
Even more than Bach, Handel's musical magnificence in his many organ concertos is so openly-scored that the depth and beauty of these concertos can be heard in full on virtually any instrumental configurations.

Will The Fight For Mosul Be The October Surprise?

Chris Weigant | September 28, 2016 | Politics
There has been relatively little speculation this election year about what could possibly be the "October surprise." In a normal presidential election year, this is a fun subject to speculate about when the actual news from the campaign trail gets dull and repetitive. This year, of course, that hasn't exactly happened.

Doug Wirth | September 28, 2016 | Queer Voices
Like any new treatment, there may be misconceptions surrounding PrEP - but if we shy away from discussing it, we are doing a disservice to the thousands of New Yorkers who could benefit from it - particularly those who have a disproportionately higher risk of HIV infection
