A number of economists (here, here) have tried to deny that America has a VAT (Value-Added Tax) problem that's harming our trade balance. It seems Crazy Billionaire has said we do, and he's not allowed to be right about anything. Unfortunately, their denials, while...
Last Sunday afternoon I drove to Fordham University in the Bronx, where I was a guest on Dan Romanello's Group Harmony Review over Fordham's radio station, WFUV. As you approach the main entrance to Fordham, you pass the baseball diamond, home field of the Fordham Rams. You park and...
A brooding actor named Seul-Woo and a naive country girl named Young-Woo were arranged to be married when they were kids. Now adults, the time for their marriage has arrived.

On Friday our family wears orange. You can't compare pain and hurt like the one our people endured in the Residential Schools. You only have to ask someone in the community about the abuse that the schools caused, and each one could name 3 or 4 elders, uncles, or grandmas...
The good news is I may not need to get onto Elon Musk's Mars expedition after all. The first Trump-Clinton debate had loomed as a potential hinge in history. Do some fairly obvious things, and the billionaire bully boy not only extends his momentum, he quite possible takes himself to...
I got to see Helder Guimaraes perform a few years ago when he was a part of a two-man show, Nothing to Hide. Guimaraes is back in the Big Apple for a run of Verso through January at New World Stages where this time he's on...

We talk about a "custom fit" because work that is designed optimally for both the employer and employee creates a win/win.
Netflix continues to do right by the Marvel universe with Luke Cage, whose 13 episodes drop on Friday.
It's unfortunate however these masterpieces aren't built like they were in the 80's and the decades before then.
As a coach and gerontologist, I'm constantly exposed to stories from the modern workplace. Again and again, my clients tell me about the culture of ageism.
Hillary is wining and as she does it she's bringing all of us to the table -- and she's putting critically important policies that are too often overlooked and which lift our economy and our families front and center on the national agenda where they belong.
It is too broad a sweep to discuss all women in politics in short form writing. I am however a woman in politics and it is particularly worth discussing how being a woman in politics affects my life, my choices, my family, and the decisions I ultimately make when I am sitting in board rooms and courthouses discussing decisions that will affect the future. I have always been political.
"Implicit" bias refers to associations that are not fully conscious. We could not survive if all our decisions were completely subject to the conscious mind. Because the mind processes so much information, the brain has evolved to look for short cuts.
Every year I run a conflict resolution station at the 5th grade retreat for a local school. The first thing I ask is for them to tell me what words come to mind when I say the word conflict. Every year, all the adjectives are negative.
Candidates like Trott and Trump may be a perfect storm for a Zika health crisis, but voters are the hurricane everyone should be looking at. Continued inaction on Zika is a losing issue with the voting public.
Our unhappiness with national politics should not cause us to give up hope. These days, most positive political activity is close to home, where communities actually improve when clergy, congregation members, and elected officials work together for the common good.
The day that America should realize that disability rights are civil rights has arrived. It is not too late for the disability community to band together and make their unified voice heard.
