The 7 Most Important Metrics for Your Content Marketing Campaign

Jose Vasquez | September 29, 2016 | Business
How can you tell if your content marketing campaign is actually working? You can get a general feel, based on how people talk about your content and how many new leads you're getting, but you won't be able to move forward with any degree of certainty unless you're measuring your efforts with objective data.

Queen of Katwe: The Rags-to-Riches Story of Phiona Mutesi

Julee Morrison | September 29, 2016 | Entertainment
The game of chess. It doesn't really interest me. Most likely, Uganda will only be a place I might visit through headlines. These were the thoughts that bounced in my mind as I accepted a press junket with Disney announcing we would be screening Disney's Queen of Katwe. By the title, I guessed it was about a girl from the slums of Uganda who learned to play chess.

Joy of Exploration: Thoughts From Volunteering With Special Needs Children in Abu Dhabi

Anastasiya Oleksiyenko | September 29, 2016 | World
In February-May 2016 I volunteered at the Future Center for Special Needs in Abu Dhabi. The Community Outreach office at my university NYU Abu Dhabi promoted the opportunity and I felt a need to take it, to actively serve the society in which I had been studying for four years.

Can A Good Rest Help Us Become More Efficient at Work?

Marianna Glynska | September 29, 2016 | Entertainment
Why is it important to have a rest in life? Why can't we just work nonstop? Why do we spend money on having a cup of coffee in a café knowing that it's much cheaper to have it at home? Why do we 'waste' time on shopping, meeting with other people, going to restaurants, skiing, etc.? We would have much more time for our work, for learning some new things if we didn't spend it on other recreational things.

Do You Like Your College Students? Really?

Stephen Kuusisto | September 29, 2016 | College
I entered a college classroom as an instructor for the first time in August, 1983. I was 28 years old, legally blind, with extremely long hair and an unkempt beard. I was in love with poetry and fresh off a Fulbright in Scandinavia where I translated Finnish poems into half-baked...

Close to Rome as the Country Gets Ready to Watch: The Right to Be Scared

Carol Smaldino | September 29, 2016 | Impact
Well, it's true. I'm close to Rome in that I'm in Lucca, in that I'm in Italy. And I'm close to home, in that I'll be in Colorado tomorrow evening, in time for the presentation at the American Colosseum (metaphorically speaking), which in this case will be the uber attended, anxiously awaited and rehearsed, and media success of prime time. This would be the Presidential Debate, between you know who.

Hiding in Plain Sight: Janet Yellen's Policies Should Make Her Ashamed

Sue Veres Royal | September 29, 2016 | Impact
Simply put, the Fed pulled off a magic trick that would leave Houdini gasping. Janet Yellen and the Fed took the made-up money and bought Wall Street assets that would have otherwise crashed and gave money to Wall Street banks that would have otherwise gone bankrupt...with no strings attached.

U.S. Manufacturing, Alexander Hamilton, and the Presidential Election

Gilbert B. Kaplan | September 29, 2016 | Business
In addition to giving rise to a great Broadway hip-hop play, Alexander Hamilton was the founding father of the U.S. pro-manufacturing movement. In 1791, he wrote a report to the Congress extolling the virtues of U.S. manufacturing.

Rebooting ... The Why, The When, The Can I and The How!

Ann Fry | September 29, 2016 | Business
You wake up one day. You look at your business, you look at your life and you wonder, "is that all there is?" You secretly wonder, "is it finally time for me to declare what I really want?" I would venture to say that a majority of people feel this way at one time or another. They secretly yearn for something more or better or different.

Tony Cointreau, who is the heir to the Cointreau French liqueur fortune, held a book party to celebrate his latest book, A Gift of Love: Lessons Learned from my Work and Friendship with Mother Teresa.

I thought education was my education

David Loncle | September 29, 2016 | Education
Writing, like life, is about revision. This is one of the examples of how education has failed us. It is also why I've emphasized how damaging apathy and blame culture can be - societal cancers. We have to learn to remake ourselves, our institutions, our communities, our thoughts and hearts. Revise. Reexamine. Dive in and revise again.

R. Evon Idahosa | September 29, 2016 | Impact
Martha was suddenly awakened by what had become the all-too-familiar sound of gunshots. Boko Haram, she thought. As she scurried to gather her thoughts, her husband Mark was already rushing their younger, panic-stricken children out of their home in Chibok, Nigeria.

Among health care leaders and policymakers, there is growing support to improve the value of US health care by providing doctors with feedback about their performance relative to that of their peers (i.e., comparing doctors to each other).

Donald Trump's Hall Of Insults

Peter Dreier | September 29, 2016 | Politics
It is difficult for voters to keep track of the many legal and personal scandals surrounding Donald Trump, but it is easier to remember the many people whom he has insulted. Both pose liabilities for Trump's campaign for president, but perhaps ironically, it is the insults that are likely to do more damage than the scandals.
