The Choice Of Patriotism

Robert Reich | June 28, 2016 | Politics
Inclusive patriotism is our national creed. It is born of hope. Mean-spirited, exclusive patriotism is new to our shores. It is born of fear. Let us hope that this Fourth of July and in the months and years ahead we choose inclusion over exclusion, hope over fear.

Abortion Is Still A Luxury, Not A Right

The Cut | June 28, 2016 | Women
If abortion were really a right, we wouldn't charge women to access it. We wouldn't allow laws that enforce waiting periods and mandatory counseling to stand. We wouldn't allow providers to be so thoroughly terrorized that only doctors with exceptionally strong political views are willing to help women exercise their right.

The Great Unraveling

Bill Shireman | June 28, 2016 | Politics
Viewed in isolation, the fall of the EU in Britain and the rise of Donald Trump in the U.S. both reflect high-risk gambles by disillusioned voters to upend the establishment they blame for economic and cultural turmoil.

There Is No Such Thing As Selfish Breastfeeding

Mama Bean | June 28, 2016 | Parents
There is one comment that I see pop up from time to time beneath articles that are written in support of breastfeeding. You've probably seen the line..."She's breastfeeding for herself, not for the child!" Yes, that one.

From almost the start of the non-violent, citizen-led protests in Syria in the spring of 2011, a heavyweight set of pundits, policymakers, politicians and analysts have raised their voices for some kind of US military intervention against the vicious regime of Bashar al-Assad.

Banishing Mother Guilt To Find Joy

Jennifer S. White | June 28, 2016 | Parents
Mother guilt creeps up silently and throughout my day. It's an ugly feeling and one I'm embarrassed to even acknowledge. But the thing is, I don't want to be perfect. I want to be me, and I want to be real and genuine about myself with my kids.

Developing Talent at Top US Colleges

Martin Kurzweil | June 28, 2016 | Education
It is tempting to pit racial/ethnic and socioeconomic diversity as competing goals. But there is no evidence that pursuing one kind of diversity keeps colleges from achieving the other.

Is Starting Your Own Company Your Cup of Tea?

Vinita Gupta | June 28, 2016 | Business
Are entrepreneurs born or raised? Should I start my own company or try to make headway in the one I am in? These are questions we face when things are not going the way we would like, which happens more often than we want to admit.

Elaine Ambrose | June 28, 2016 | Comedy
Laughter truly is the best medicine, and my children and their children should live healthy lives and giggle well into old age. I'm looking forward to the time when my grandchildren will avoid parental reprimands by telling tall tales and creating animated excuses.

Transparency is Not Enough: Why the Financial Industry Must Embrace Accountability

Elliot S. Weissbluth | June 28, 2016 | Business
Back in 2013, I called out the financial services industry for being less transparent than the tobacco industry based on a report about the conflicts of interest inherent in some firms' business models. Conversations about conflicts of interest in this business are nothing new, especially since the financial crisis....
