If you're going through midlife divorce -- or have gone through it -- you're not alone. Midlife divorce is skyrocketing. And the reasons for that are many. Chiefly, most of us are looking at longer lifespans than our ancestors and we're not willing to live out those lives in complacent...
Fashion matters. As we approach a series of crunch talks for the planet on environmental issues pertaining to climate change, beginning with UN talks in New York, I want to say this loud and proud.
If we are to keep global warming within the manageable limits of 2 degrees Celsius by 2012, we need to speak up with a clear, strong, united voice -- now.
The House of Representatives adjourned Fridayy, meaning Colorado senatorial candidate Cory Gardner has officially missed his chance to withdraw his name from the Life at Conception Act, a federal personhood bill, prior to the Nov. election. To uncosponsor the bill, which would ban all abortion, even...
'Change almost never fails because it's too early. It almost always fails because it's too late.' - Seth Godin One of the key components of transformation and innovation is the business model, and since the ability of companies to transform and reinvent themselves is crucial to their lifeline, I...

Know that life will hand you a stink every once in a while. Accept and feel your stink. Respond to it and remember it. And know that life's stinks are just part of the game. And you can handle it just fine.
So, there's no scientific consensus about how the phases of the moon might affect our sleeping lives. One thing is more certain: the influences of the moon on our sleeping and waking lives will continue to fascinate scientists -- and the rest of us -- as it has for so long.

If you fell off the training wagon this summer, don't fret, there is still hope for a great race day! As long as you have a reasonable foundation of fitness, you can prepare for a race in about a month's time -- and steer clear of injury in the process.
New Haven Schools,
You've heard their mantra: Our public schools are failing because teachers don't care and policymakers are spending too much money to prop up a broken system. Campbell Brown and company, who could be called Michelle Rhee 2.0, have carried on this refrain. They say it's the...
By James M. Dorsey Taken at face value, a rare acknowledgment by International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach that sports and politics are inextricably intertwined should be a first step towards radical reform that offers a proper structure to govern the relationship. That is nowhere truer than in Middle Eastern,...
Voting is our right, but it is also our responsibility. Because if we don't take the next step and elect leaders who are committed to building a better future for our kids, other rights -- our rights to clean air, clean water, health and prosperity -- are placed directly in harm's way.
This week brought a surprise: In a time of rampant division, we saw an entire people -- or at least 55 percent of them -- choose unity instead. On Thursday, 3.6 million Scots went to the polls and chose not to change Great Britain to Somewhat Less Great Britain by voting against severing their 307-year union. Now, after the celebratory champagne and haggis (or whatever one drinks with haggis), comes the hard work of ironing out a new division of power. Less surprising was the continued upheaval in the NFL, as yet another player was arrested for domestic violence. On Friday, Commissioner Roger Goodell pledged to "make changes" and "do better." But the uniformly negative response to Goodell's fumbled press conference makes it clear that this NFL season will continue to be defined more by what happens off the field than on it.
Too many people, young and older, let their career and their lifestyle happen to them, rather than proactively making things happen based on their personal passions, skills, and interests. Others make decisions based on someone else's interests, such as the father who wants his son to take over the family...
In an August 22 column on the Ebola crisis, I noted that the current outbreak of Ebola in West Africa -- "the worst in recorded history" -- had claimed 1,350 lives. Less than a month later the...
As a climate and Earth science communicator, I find this is the biggest challenge. We're in a constant fight to capture attention, to move people, to make them care about how their behavior is affecting Earth.
To feel something.
As a service to the deceased person's families -- often on both sides of the border, some with United States citizenship and some not -- the work is a remarkable study in simple decency and human compassion.

Above all, it is clarity, not complexity, that companies need -- which is why in addition to putting a price on carbon, BT supports a carbon labelling scheme for electricity, as one solution that would reward businesses for using low carbon and renewable energy.
Being abroad this semester in Salamanca, Spain, the word 'lost' has taken on new meaning. 'Lost' for me now extends to homesickness, jet lag and culture shock. It's wondering if other students will ask for your company tonight, or hoping service on Viber isn't too fuzzy to talk to your mom.

Inspired by the original impulse of Occupy, I began gathering people for contemplative prayer and dialogues to cultivate wisdom resources for those of us who have quietly been working on building alternative structures for a new world.
