Diversity in corporate leadership, especially among fast-growth companies, is no longer a nice-to-have, a buzz-word, or a marketing ploy. It’s an economic necessity. Research has shown that with greater diversity comes greater financial returns for our companies. That comes as no surprise since diverse teams – from leadership...

What do you, cows, digesters and landfills all have in common? You all/ we all make methane gas. The methane in landfill is the same as 'clean fuel' natural gas. It is the same as the gas in anaerobic digesters. It is the same stuff that cows and people produce...
I don't like what I'm seeing in Bitcoin recently. Or, more specifically, what I'm seeing is very good news for Bitcoin holders potentially - which is bad news for a more diversified user like me, as I reduced my bitcoin balance at around $661.20. But now, at $654, I'm uniquely...
Wouldn't you agree that the losing litigant in a trial rife with falsities and error -- from an imposter judge to undeniable anti-Semitism -- deserves an appeal? U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg does. That's why today, July 27, at the intersection...
It dawned on me that I've never met the child who I will be the parent to one day. Perhaps it won't be born of my body, but it will be born of my soul. I hope to one day float with them on a Saturday morning, hopefully not watching their heartbreak.
Emotions are high and a lot is at stake, but here are some things I hope my peers understand on the road to November.
Small wins can add up to big gains for diversity in the workplace Big technology companies like Facebook and Google are no strangers to the media, but lately they've made headlines not for new product announcements or earnings reports, but for their disclosures of much-anticipated diversity data that shed...
Trump can mean the very end of the future of this country as we know it -- the end of the rule of law. No, I am not "for her". I am for my family, my friends and my country -- and that means I will be voting for Hillary with a prayer as well as a ballot.

Not Wearing Bras,
Women Not Wearing Bras,
I'm intrigued by the reported trend that women are no longer wearing bras. Ditching your bra is supposed to make you feel more independent, liberated, and empowered.
My partner and I know that we're flawed. In fact, we welcome and openly discuss the fact all the time. This, we believe, makes us more open to improvement, allows us to grow together -- and of course leaves plenty of room to extract entertainment value from our shortcomings.
He's at a stage where he gives grins out for everything and everyone. He doesn't know hate. I love that innocence and that his smile can light up a room. I want to hold onto that innocence and love for as long as possible.
By Thomas Kennedy While Democrats were for the most part united during the Democratic National Convention, there was no doubt that there were ripples of dissent. Standing on the upper levels of the Wells Fargo Center during the first night, impassioned Bernie Sanders supporters consistently booed every time Hillary Clinton...
"Eat this, and know your mother loves you," she cooed. By my second meatball, I had all but forgotten the boo boos. The message was clear: Food is love.
This afternoon, as Lorraine and I were going to the dining room for lunch, I decided to leave our glass door open, closing only the screen door so that my puppy Lucille would be able to feel the breeze from the beach. When we returned from lunch I saw that the screen door was opened.
Go low on the temp. Heat is a big contributor to frizz. Especially if it's already dry and hot out, turn down the temp on your tools.
Who am I? I'm still figuring that out, but I can tell you what I'm not. I'm not young anymore.
By Jerry Lembcke and Jeremy Kuzmarov With the collapse of the Sanders' campaign and WikiLeaks revelations that DNC operatives worked behind the scenes to undermine it, the only efficacious vote for progressives in this election is NOTA, None Of The Above, a vote against the electoral system as it...
Women In Business,
Philadelphia. "The City of Brotherly Love" is under siege by protestors fed up with broken dreams and broken promises by career-politicians who shamelessly use voters for their personal ambition and agenda.
