We Wear Orange

Alexandra Owens | September 28, 2016 | Healthy Living
On Friday our family wears orange. You can't compare pain and hurt like the one our people endured in the Residential Schools. You only have to ask someone in the community about the abuse that the schools caused, and each one could name 3 or 4 elders, uncles, or grandmas...

Hillary's Debate Win (and Trump's Stumbles) Haven't Changed the Race

William Bradley | September 28, 2016 | Media
The good news is I may not need to get onto Elon Musk's Mars expedition after all. The first Trump-Clinton debate had loomed as a potential hinge in history. Do some fairly obvious things, and the billionaire bully boy not only extends his momentum, he quite possible takes himself to...

Danny Groner | September 28, 2016 | New York
I got to see Helder Guimaraes perform a few years ago when he was a part of a two-man show, Nothing to Hide. Guimaraes is back in the Big Apple for a run of Verso through January at New World Stages where this time he's on...

It's unfortunate however these masterpieces aren't built like they were in the 80's and the decades before then.

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.

Shout It From The Rooftops: #ImWithHer! #HillaryLove

Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner | September 29, 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.

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.

Implicit Bias In The Presidential Debate

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.

The Beauty Of Conflict: Stop Avoiding And Start Inviting

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.

In the days when I sold my first husband's paintings we made quite the cute team. It fooled us.

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.
