Greg Kushnick, Psy.D. | September 26, 2016 | Politics
Feel free to express yourself, but stop and think about the point of getting so upset with people who you judge as having the wrong viewpoint on which candidate is right for America.

The Debate Is About More Than A Winner And A Loser

Justin Frank | September 26, 2016 | Politics
Tonight's debate is about the future of our nation. It is about who we are as a nation. It is about much more than winning and losing. It represents what kind of America we want for ourselves, our children, and the world at large.

If Grit Is the Measure of Success for Today, Those of Us in Advertising Must Be the Ultimate Performers

Lynn Power | September 26, 2016 | Business
These days, a lot of people have been talking about grit. What it is, why it's good, and how to get it. The news is filled with stories of personal achievement driven by sheer determination and the will to win. Angela Duckworth's Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance argues that grit is often a more effective attribute in achieving goals than talent or IQ.

David Henry Sterry | September 26, 2016 | Books
We first met Jenise Aminoff at the New England SCBWI Conference in Springfield, Massachusetts. She wowed us with her awesome pitch at our Pitchapalooza (think American Idol for books), and we were absolutely sure that she was going to be a published author sooner rather than later.

A Fun New Twist On Cookie Butter!

Serene Herrera | September 26, 2016 | Taste
I may have a thing for using Bourbon in the kitchen. Not so much for drinking it. The hubs does though, so there's usually some on hand in the bar. Using it in the kitchen for some flavor though? I'm all about that! Which is why you can find Chocolate Bourbon Truffles and Bacon Bourbon Meatballs on the site also.

Green Cities = Calmer Minds and Stronger Hearts

Jad Daley | September 26, 2016 | Green
If you're like me, even a short summer getaway from the city, like to the mountains or shore, helps to calm your mind and strengthen your heart. Imagine if our cities were more like the natural places we visit--what beneficial impact could this have on our health? This question has special importance as it pertains to lower-income city-dwellers who can't afford to escape to a quieter place.

Funding the War on Cybercrime

Edward Guiliano, Ph.D. | September 26, 2016 | College
In 1851, the world got a little faster. That's the year the first world's fair opened in London. Six million people visited and marveled at the new technology on display, and watched with pleasure as men traded telegraphed messages instantly between London and Manchester. The defeat of distance was magical, and it was just the beginning.

Kohler, Wisconsin, Remains an Oasis of Midwestern Beauty

John Mariani | September 26, 2016 | Travel
Nothing about Kohler, Wisconsin, is unintentional. It is the expression of a remarkable vision unique to America when planned communities--sometimes characterized as Utopian--sprang up in the 19th century as places both autonomous and isolated from the stewpot cultures of the big cities.

For more than two decades, the slogan of the beef industry was, "Beef. It's what's for dinner." Except that in some American households, it wasn't.

Kimberly Inskeep | September 26, 2016 | Impact
When looking into the eyes of Beathe, a Rwandan woman who suffered unthinkable tragedy during the 1994 genocide that killed nearly a million people, including many of her loved ones before her eyes, I could see a depth of pain I will never forget.

"A Big One" the Half Billion Users Cyber Hack of Yahoo

Professor Mark Skilton | September 26, 2016 | Technology
While it's not a surprise to hear that this order of magnitude of users have been corporate hacked, the rise of the digital business means everyone is more or less online these days. What is shocking is the date , 2014 and the sense of resignation that some may have to the event.

Brian Hughes | September 26, 2016 | Impact
Police use of lethal force as a civil rights violation is a common conversation in our society as is prosecutorial misconduct caused by withholding exonerating evidence. While these cases are extreme and valid examples of civil rights violations, there are others that impact large segments of society that often go unnoticed.

Elizabeth Sobieski | September 26, 2016 | Los Angeles
Some people believe Walt Disney has been cryogenically frozen, awaiting future technology to thaw his genius, even though there is substantial evidence indicating that he was cremated two days after his lung cancer related death, and a small metal wall plaque marks the remains of one "Walter Elias Disney" in a garden at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park.

Presidency Is Important, But The Change We Seek Is Closer To Home

Jesse Moore | September 26, 2016 | Black Voices
Even as we're all hypnotized by the presidential race, and the candidates' rhetorical responses to these incidents, we have to recognize that these issues, that impact us directly, that move us to tears and to march in our streets -- are almost exclusively controlled by state and local leaders. Not our president.

Time To Treat Bank CEOs Like Adults

Dean Baker | September 26, 2016 | Business
The country's major banks are like trouble-making adolescents. They constantly get involved in some new and unimagined form of mischief. Back in the housing bubble years it was the pushing, packaging, and selling of fraudulent mortgages.
