If you can't cook for yourself, the ability to eat well is diminished.
No matter how well you're managing your money now, you need to also be thinking about retirement. (Yes, even if you're only 25 or 30.) The good news is it's never too early to start planning for your retirement. It's also never too late, if you've been slacking up to this point.
The UN does not declare a famine until acute malnutrition rates among children exceed 30 percent, more than two people per every 10,000 die per day, and people are not able to access food and other basic necessities.
Shouldn't I say something nice here about Jeff Bezos? Bezos? Yes, inventor of Amazon. You mean the bully, beating up on Hachette, and Hachette's poor authors? The same. Why be nice to him? Because, mon vieux, he's done something we should all be grateful for.
Sure, I was biased. Chicago was my kind of town. And I was pretty sure all the New York City bluster about how there is no other place like it; about how it's the city that never sleeps; the crossroads of the world etc. etc. was all bull.
Saved You a Click,
The Onion Clickhole,
In the age of bite-sized lists, tweets, and pithy "tl;dr" wrap-ups, we're losing the ability to engage deeply with subjects. Hoax sites have learned our diet and how to disguise themselves as food. The only way to fight back is to change what we eat.
My sabbatical started, which means, for the second time in my teaching career: all writing, all the time. At least until January, when I go back to teaching and directing the Arkansas Writer's MFA Workshop.
Calls for presidential impeachment have cast a shadow over most modern-day presidents. However, the chorus of impeachers seems louder in the past year.
The late Steve Jobs, Apple founder, lost the company he built to investors only for him to buy it back a few years later because he had learned from his own initial shortcomings. A vital component to managing fresh opportunities is not fearing to take risk.

Ideally, USAID and other donors should make sustainability an umbrella aspect of their political, social, and economic development programming.
Last night I lost it. It's been a long time since I felt helpless, panicked, visceral fear. The war, in an instant of a second, became personal and tangible and even more horrifying and terrifying.
It's raining sharks, hallelujah! Or maybe whether you're making that exclamation depends on how highly refined your appreciation of irony is.
Juan Orlando Hernández,
There's plenty of blame among both Republican and Democratic governments in the past two decades. But so much of the current debate in the United States overlooks the background of how Central America came to be countries of such violence, corruption, insecurity and relative poverty.
When I began my research for a novel about John the Baptist, I expected to find a wild man dressed in camel hair robes, eating locusts and honey in the desert. The enigmatic and mysterious man I found was quite different. The man I found was charismatic, passionate, popular and brave.
A few days ago I downloaded the "Code Red" app to my phone that Israelis use to follow the thousands of rockets being launched over the border from Gaza. Over the course of thirty minutes the phone sounded more than 10 times.
There may be no better way to truly soak in a destination this summer than by lazily lounging beside one of the world's most beautiful infinity swimming pools.
I urge every smoker to talk with his/her doctor about various methods to stop smoking. Please consider adding your voice to those who hold individuals and corporations accountable for their choices. With the right mirror, we just might make the smoke disappear.

Before he began writing as well as directing his celebrated movies, Preston Sturges uncorked Strictly Dishonorable, a hit Broadway show. It was such a click that although it opened a little more than a month before the October 1929 stock market crash, it ran until January, 1931. It's easy to...

But I remain guarded about the reckless use of the "h" word when it comes to cancer. Natasha was kind, compassionate and gracious, but over time she did not bear her disease with astonishing bravery.
As someone born and raised in Ireland but now living on the other side of the pond, it is eerily fascinating to see how many liberal Americans walk on eggshells or suddenly develop moral blind spots when discussing the subject of Israel, mass civilian casualties and collective punishment.
