By David Wemer When nineteen-year-old American swimmer Lilly King emerged from the pool after winning the women's 100-meter backstroke at the Rio Olympics, she became not only a gold-medalist, but also a...
This election season has revealed a lot of anger in the electorate directed against establishment thinking and establishment figures in each party. Ted Cruz defied the Republican establishment for not living up to traditional values. Donald Trump continues to defy the Republican establishment for not being tough enough on immigration...

Robert Speel, Pennsylvania State University Every presidential election year in my American Political Campaigns and Elections course, I get an opportunity to spend a full lecture discussing with students some of the famous moments from historic presidential debates. I explain to students that...

George W. Bush,
The last three administrations have followed a bipartisan policy of constant war. Unfortunately, the consequences have been ugly: every intervention has laid the groundwork for more conflict.
Fraternal Order Of Police,
Black Lives Matter,
When one group of Americans is brutalized, there is no "justice for all." Every American is at risk. But last straw came when the Fraternal Order of Police chose to endorse Donald Trump for President.
Don't Take DeBait As we approach the upcoming first debate between Hillary and Donald, few expect much beyond more spectacle and another news cycle in this already tedious media frenzy that is revealing the dark side of our collective consciousness just about everyplace we look. We can...
Sri Lanka's Maithripala Sirisena spoke at the United Nations (UN) on Wednesday. Mr. Sirisena touched on economic development, poverty, drugs and more. It was a brief speech. However, Mr. Sirisena could have at least attempted to make a clear, articulate case for the most important aspects of the...
Starz's intense drama Power wraps up its third season Sunday (9 p.m. ET) in its favorite situation, with a neon target blinking on pretty much everyone's back. That especially includes James St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), better known as Ghost, who has fallen...
Donald Trump's success and presidential candidacy are not an accident. They are the result of a rigged financial system.
It all comes down to style, tone and substance. Debate moments can change the race, as they have in the past.

Christine, Antonio Campos' new movie from a script by Craig Shilowich may be the Room of the current season: an indie film that breaks out onto the main awards stage. A riveting portrait based on the disturbing, true story of Christine Chubbuck, a newsroom reporter in 1974 Sarasota, Florida, the...
Thank you, Adele for being honest and for showing women it's perfectly fine to just be yourself. Thank you for being a role model who gives us the permission and confidence that goes along with it.
Being a woman, I feel lucky to be living in the twenty-first century, the time that gives much more opportunities for women. It's hard to imagine nowadays that it wasn't always like that, and there were times when women were not allowed to go to the university and their main task was to stay at home, cook and look after the children.
We are witnessing the most dysfunctional campaign for the presidency in our lifetime. Does anyone really believe that despite the promises by all candidates that they will solve our problems that the real solutions to our nation's problems will actually result? Unlikely.
My friend Mike confided to me yesterday that he and his wife of over 20 years are getting a divorce. Although the split was her idea, he was quick to choose to forgive her and focus on building a stable future for himself, his wife, and their children.
The Paris Agreement is legally binding, but each country gets to set their individual target and how they want to go about meeting it. This may seem like a strange approach, but was necessary to keep big countries like the United States involved in the process.
With the skyline in front of me, I remembered: I live here. And I can't just exist here. I need to thrive here. So I'm going to keep messing up until I find the right solution and I'm going to keep creating disasters until someone calls it talent.
I suppose the truth lies in the stretch that those yoga pants offer. It's not just yoga pants though. I would be just as content in sweatpants or really anything with elastic that can be shimmied up instead of zipped up.
The survey also revealed long-term benefits of narrative evaluations. One alum, now a professor, said grades don't mean much at the large university where she's teaching. "Narrative evaluations mean more to students and say more about them," she wrote.
Neil Degrasse Tyson,
You could, you know. You could be one of the organizing forces of the evolution of humanity over the next century. But, first, you have to get off the middle school playground. You have to let go of your identity as that guy who calls himself Crazy Larry and throws confetti at the camera to sell used cars. You have to get a little more mature, yourself.
