A Bright Future for Renewable Energy

Phyllis Cuttino | July 16, 2012 | Green
The most important long-term dynamic in this sector is falling prices. These price declines are good news for consumers. Yet falling prices are putting manufacturers through a period of turmoil in the United States and elsewhere.

Americans Elect and the Failure of Our Leadership Class

Andrew S. Doctoroff | July 16, 2012 | Politics
The cognoscenti so dismissive of American Elects' efforts merely smirk, mocking the truth many of us consider self-evident: Our partisan duopoly continues to fail us.

Chuck Klosterman Talks Football Safety and Whether He's a Good Person

Mark Bazer | July 16, 2012 | Entertainment
In my chat with Klosterman, he expounds on the subjects he writes about often -- music, sports -- while tackling the question of whether cavemen were, in fact, the most interesting people ever.

On Time Passing

Zaki Hasan | July 16, 2012 | Culture
It's funny how a seemingly arbitrary milestone can end up becoming the cue ball that sends a whole mess of thoughts about age, personal growth and professional goals bouncing around your head.

Greece Should Not Influence the U.S. Markets: the U.S. Should

Georges Ugeux | July 16, 2012 | Business
Greece is a convenient excuse. Let's correct our own weaknesses, starting from public indebtedness, rather than pointing the finger towards Europe.

'American Idol' Recap: The Final Three Perform

Laura Prudom | July 16, 2012 | TV
I gave up on being invested in the outcome of an Idol season the year that the phenomenally talented Adam Lambert lost to the pretty-but-bland Kris Allen, so I honestly have no horse in this race. But if I had to bet, I'd bet on Phillip Phillips.

Why Daring to Be Yourself Is the Best Approach to College Admissions

Marjorie Hansen Shaevitz | July 16, 2012 | College
Begin paying attention to what you like, what pleases you, and what seems meaningful. This is not being selfish; it is quite the opposite. Happy, successful people are not motivated by their own egos, but by doing something meaningful in their lives.

"Say It Ain't So, Joe, Again, and Again, and Again ...": A Legacy of Continued Bad Behavior at Google

Eric K. Clemons | July 16, 2012 | Technology
I believe, as I have believed for some time, that more active regulation of Google is warranted. Google has demonstrated that it cannot be trusted. In fairness, no one could be trusted or should be trusted with so much power.

Obama en eaux troubles?

David Boudeweel-Lefebvre | July 16, 2012 | Canada Quebec
La question qui brûle les lèvres de tous les analystes est de savoir si la remontée de Mitt Romney dans les sondages est réelle ou si elle tient uniquement à la conjoncture actuelle, défavorable à Barck Obama. Les deux candidats sont en fait au coude-à-coude depuis un bon moment déjà et toute avance se situe dans la marge d'erreur.

Mike Smith | July 16, 2012 | Media
I went to four conferences at Internet Week in New York. But the two keynotes I found most compelling were by the intractable Barry Diller and the irrepressible David Carr, who continues to celebrate the Timesasking online subscribers to actually pay!
