Dana Leong | July 25, 2016 | Arts
The world is filled with a broad spectrum of spiritual beliefs and beautiful explanations of our origin. Many of these thoughts have become pillars of truth as well as points of perpetual dispute. Whatever your belief, we often lose sight of what these principles provide in the grand scheme of...

America Needs a Center-Left Coalition to Stop Trump

Alan Singer | July 25, 2016 | Politics
I am not a Hillary fan or a registered Democrat. I usually vote for the Green Party. But after watching coverage of the Republican National Convention I am convinced that Donald Trump and his legion of chanting supporters are a threat to democratic values in the United States and if...

Regret-Proofing Your Relationship

Karl A. Pillemer, Ph.D. | July 25, 2016 | Fifty
Very little is written about how to avoid having relationship regrets. In my interviews with 700 older people -- who had vast experience both in and out of relationships -- I was keenly interested in what younger people can do to avoid regretting their actions when it comes to love.

Karla Araujo | July 25, 2016 | Fifty
It's no secret that both men and women rely on fantasies to rev up their sexual experiences. But while researchers have asked large groups of younger women what they think about most often during sex, no one has ventured into the murky mind of the menopausal woman. Until now.

Nicolle Mah | July 25, 2016 | Healthy Living
Timber. Maple Syrup. When asked of Canadian exports, you'd be forgiven if pulses didn't also spring to mind. Yet Canadian farmers are one of the biggest producers of pulses, the edible seeds of the legume family, such as peas, chickpeas and beans. In 2014, exports were valued at over $3...

Putting The "Twit" in "Twitter"

Lev Raphael | July 24, 2016 | Comedy
Americans don't use the word "twit" as much as the English do, which is too bad. Twits are brainless people and they're all over the Internet, wasting space in comments sections at news sites or anytime someone posts a blog. They blather...

Trump Updates the Stab-in-the-Back Myth With "Hillary's Terrible Crimes"

William Bradley | July 24, 2016 | Media
"I've heard this sort of speech a lot in the last 15 years and trust me, it doesn't sound any better in Russian." Garry Kasparov, Russian dissident and former chess world champion Hmm, I wonder how it would sound in German. Many in the media took note of...

Race Relations: Has America Evolved At All Since The 1960s?

Jason Fuller | July 24, 2016 | Black Voices
Trump has managed to tap into the animosity and anger felt by most of the white population in America, fueling and nurturing it to his political advantage so that he is now within striking distance of being able to actually pursue an agenda of banning Muslims from the U.S. and retrogressing all the progress we had supposedly made over the last several decades.

Can Hillary Unite Center-Left And Left?

Robert Kuttner | July 24, 2016 | Politics
Clinton is a creature of the center-left, and not the left. In an ordinary year, that would be just the ticket for winning the White House. This year, with anti-establishment sentiment at a boil, center-left may not quite be enough.

Trump's Weak: Four Days from "Mad Max" and "Network"

Mark Green | July 24, 2016 | Politics
When you combine a Putin personality (says Kasparov) with a sociopath (says author of "Art of The Deal"), you get a Convention that wants to jail Hillary Clinton. Stuart Stevens & Ron Reagan agree that he's unlikely to win but may splinter the GOP into Reform-icon and Nativist Wings.

Earl Ofari Hutchinson | July 24, 2016 | Politics
Kaine is not the LBJ of presidential politics, but he's about as close as it gets to a candidate on the ticket with a civil rights pedigree that he doesn't run from.
