By Judith E. Glaser Many MANAGEMENT GURUS, ACADEMICS, and CEOs are writing on change, yet there is a difference between theory and actual change. If you are entrusted to make change happen, run a division, have a strategic HR role, or are...

"Mom, why are all sugar crystals the same shape, now matter what size they are?" my nine-year-old daughter wanted to know. On our kitchen table were small piles of tiny white crystals and larger amber "raw" sugar that we sometimes use as a crunchy topping when baking. "Let's find out,"...
Syria Civil War,
By James M. Dorsey Jihadists, often eager to exploit soccer for their ideological goals, have found a new way of employing the game for propaganda and recruitment purposes. A recent jihadist video suggested that an apparent Portuguese fighter in Syria was a former French international who had played for British...
No, that's not a typo. It is "Hillywood." Which is a thriving creative movie-making center set in the hills of Rwanda--hills, as this inspiring documentary shows, whose astonishing beauty stands in stark contrast to the country's all-too-familiar recent tragic history. How, we wonder as we watch this footage, could such...
Easter, if it is to mean anything, must always stands face to face with Good Friday, and the crucifixion. Because God knows the crucifixions did not stop because the resurrection happened.
St. Louis is already a city that has lost so many good-paying blue-collar jobs. Lyft and Uber are part of the Walmartization of America: part-time workers earning fast-food wages. These drivers are in a very real sense akin to scab workers, and like the companies they drive for, represent regression and not progression.
The crucifixion of Jesus is mysterious. I think it's meant to be. What's not so mysterious is how the church and church leaders have attempted to explain the mysterious throughout Christian history.
Hope is never more needed than on the Saturdays we face. Something has gone. Something has died. Something or someone that once filled a great place within has left us just as empty as we were once full, just as lonely as we were once befriended, just as uncertain as we once were so sure.
Before you get started loading your cart with candy from the supermarket's colorful seasonal display, let's take a look at what those favorite Easter sweets really contain.
It's finally time that we have that long awaited talk about measuring black success. For far too long we have given many a pass when it comes to what they say and how they go about navigating what it means to achieve for the community.
There is no doubt that data analytics will one day help to improve health care and crime detection, design better products, and improve traffic patterns and agricultural yields. My concern is about how we will one day use all the data we are gathering -- and the skeletons it will uncover.
I'm not talking about a little tweak here and there. I'm talking about throwing a massive metaphorical hand grenade into the entire system and starting over from scratch. We should be ashamed of ourselves for allowing the system to have morphed into what it has.
In my country, the norm was to repress your sexuality if you were homosexual or identified as any sexuality that was not heterosexuality. However, and understandably so, it became much harder to do so when you were in the boarding school of an all girls secondary school.
That feeling that something is missing goes away when you lead a passion-filled life. The need to seek our purpose comes from a lack of passion. When you don't feel connected to your life, you lack purpose and passion.
One essential question has received little attention: Is amassing mountains of privacy-sensitive "metadata" technically necessary for effective, lawful electronic tracking and surveillance of legitimate targets? The answer is emphatically no.
I hear many adults who are much older than I am complain about my generation. They say that young people, those about to enter the work force for the first time, are the most spoiled and entitled generation in this country's history. I happen to agree.
This is American higher education today: an angry driver, lost and confused but too proud to stop and ask directions. "I'm not lost! I know exactly where I'm going!" And to prove it, that angry driver speeds up and zips past the next exit.
With the Pacers in rapid decline and the Heat sliding not far behind, anything seems possible. Check that: almost anything (sorry, Charlotte). With hopes of early upsets, here are my picks for the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.
There is a quote attributed to multiple sources: "You are entitled to your own opinions, you are not entitled to your own facts." Here are some facts on the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare).
By Deborah Lindquist Our Mother Earth is abundantly and powerfully beautiful. Sometimes in our hurry to be who we are every day, we forget to stop and literally "smell the roses." April is Earth Month, so what better time to stop for a moment, appreciate the beauty around us, and...
