In this year of mostly misfiring big budget genre films, the rather belated return of star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass to the 'Jason Bourne' espionage franchise is a rare solid success. Yet, though it is much better than a surprising number of carping reviewers think, it feels like...
BEIJING -- Both countries demonstrate a common pattern of development different from that of the slowly growing West.
It appears former Portuguese Prime Minister António Guterres will be the next UN secretary-general to succeed Ban Ki-moon. But this is not a sure bet.
It's two months after the Brexit vote, and the financial damage is continuing. According to Reuters, New York just passed London as the number one place for foreign investors to put their money into commercial real estate. The image...
President Barack Obama is wary of the pottery barn rule: "You break it, you own it." Supporting Turkey's invasion and occupation of Syria would be a strategic mistake, making the United States a protagonist in Syria's civil war.
D.C. United routed Chicago Fire 6-2 in a game that saw a needless sending off, a flukey deflected goal, and a dominant performance from United.
President Obama surely knew that the TPP would be highly controversial when it was debated before Congress. Is it really plausible that he did not make it clear to our negotiating partners that he couldn't guarantee approval of the final agreement?

Republicans have now, by my count, missed two rather large opportunities to improve their general standing with Latino voters. Donald Trump's speech Wednesday (unless it is further postponed or even cancelled outright, of course) might just become the third big missed opportunity.
Life is complicated. As time passes and we grow older, we develop coping mechanisms in order to see the world in a particular way. We use tools like social media to shield ourselves from truly feeling or engaging with others because we're afraid of what we might feel. We're...
The views expressed are strictly those of the author. The irrational antagonism aimed at the Clinton Foundation and Secretary Clinton is enough to make one wonder where the priorities are of those who have made this into an issue of such supposed significance. A few facts are in order: •...

This less-than-scientific process of cobbling together relationship theory then creates our belief system of what good relationships look like and what we should expect from our partners. It's not exactly an ideal breeding ground for relationship success.
