Now that the "Conveneracy of Donces" is over, I am officially in full recovery mode from the four-day psychotic break that I've had to endure. It's all Good Night Moon now.

Hey Saudi Arabia: Let the Kids Play Pokemon (and Participate in Politics)!

Atif Choudhury | July 25, 2016 | World
Thursday February 23, 2011 is a date I will never forget. My roommate came home late that evening, and I immediately knew something wasn't right. Always quick to flash a boyish grin, his face instead bore a look of pure fear mixed with adrenaline on his face. He seemed to have aged a decade.

Summer Break: A Great Time For Young People To Discover The Joy Of ‘Giving Back'

Vicky Dinges | July 25, 2016 | Business
Summer is the perfect time for kids to discover what they’re passionate about and learn they can make a difference by volunteering. Take 12-year-old Jessica Carscadden, who started her own nonprofit called We Care Bears to collect stuffed animals for firefighters and police to give to children in accidents, so...

Really? The DNC Has A Politicized Staff?

Scott Lilly | July 25, 2016 | Politics
If Senator Sanders held a different vision on the role of the party and its National Committee prior to declaring his candidacy, perhaps he should have made joined the party earlier and push for bylaws that expressed that perspective.

Moving Past Self-Criticism

Rani St. Pucchi | July 25, 2016 | Women
We measure ourselves, and our self-worth by standards that are not even real. We are indeed our own worst critic. It's our own perspective, our own internal dialogue, our own head... It's simply us.

Hamptons Journal: Nona Hendryx Pays Tribute to Bowie at LongHouse Reserve Jubilee/ Richard Mishaan's Design at Guild Hall, and the East Hampton Historical Society

Regina Weinreich | July 25, 2016 | Entertainment
Jack Lenor Larsen's LongHouse Reserve, home to a spectacular sculpture garden including Yoko Ono's "Wishing Tree," became the site of great music, food, and art, in "serious moonlight," its 25th year celebration. As maidens in midnight flowy frocks danced around a reflecting pool, partiers slurped oysters and sipped peach bellinis,...

Motherhood Through A Lens: Live In The Moment Or Capture It For Later

Carly Snyder, MD | July 25, 2016 | Parents
On a recent vacation it occurred to me how nice it would be to have someone follow my family around with a camera to capture every special moment for posterity. Having been intrigued by 'day in a life' packages offered by photographers, only to be turned off by the costs, I instead find myself constantly taking pictures day in and day out.

How Trump Wants to Unify America

Don C. Reed | July 25, 2016 | Politics
I just heard a speech from Hillary Clinton's Vice Presidential running: Tim Kaine. She made a good choice. Kaine is warm, friendly, and ( as a person married to a Mexican-American), it was a joy to hear him so comfortable in speaking Spanish. He showed courtesy and respect for people too often denied that. And, like Hillary, he has dedicated his life to public service.

The White West. Or, Is It?

Gautam Adhikari | July 25, 2016 | Politics
Any assumption that the now dominant Euro-Christian civilization has exclusive roots is highly debatable. Roots of all civilizations lie in exchange and migration.

Zac Thompson | July 25, 2016 | HuffPost Live 321
The Free BirdCafe and Thai Freedom House offer hope to migrants in a perpetual state of turmoil. This shining example is something we should all take to heart because even the smallest places can end up making the biggest impact.

A Year In Port

Terence Clarke | July 25, 2016 | Style
All three of these documentary films display the many difficulties to be found in growing grapes and making wine, no matter what kind. But for me, these Portuguese vines, many of them so old, yet still so remarkably fine, present the most challenging difficulties of them all... simply because of where they are.

Embrace Your "Soft" Skills!

When you stop to think about this, there's actually nothing 'soft' about these skills. They are the absolute hardest thing to do well.

The Characters of Cleveland: Part 1 -- Selling The Donald

David Dent | July 25, 2016 | Politics
"I am not going to lie you. This has been terrible. This RNC is a joke. There's three groups of people here. There are regular people from Cleveland who just are wandering downtown sightseeing, there's a group of Republicans that are for Donald Trump, and there's a group of Republicans that don't want to say that they don't care anything about Donald Trump. So only a third of this crowd is ours."

12 Women Who Ran For President Before Hillary

Rebecca Bohanan | July 25, 2016 | Politics
What I know of Hillary's journey I know only in the context of my lifetime, and it's easy to feel that Hillary has accomplished much of what she's accomplished alone. But the reality is other women ran for both president and vice president before 2008, all aiding in the realization of Clinton's 2016 "clinch."
