Hugh Sinclair Confessions Of a Microfinance Heretic,
A new whistleblowing book by British microfinance expert Hugh Sinclair exposes a particularly painful truth: What has been promoted as a charity structured to empower the poor in fact is camouflage for heavy-handed loan sharking that regularly victimizes its so-called beneficiaries.
You gotta love the fantasy suite week! But who did Emily love enough to keep around for the finale? And what was she wearing when she made that decision? So much to discuss.
Harold Bloom, the greatest literary critic of our time, has accrued so much wisdom because he is our foremost reader with a deep, deep love for poetry. Sadly, many of the comments on my last piece showed me that a number of people lack the wisdom of Bloom.
President Obama's latest tax cut announcement is more bad messaging. When you throw out an arbitrary number as your cap for tax cuts, you immediately get off message and into the weeds. Why? Because your number rapidly becomes contested.

That is what I heard a group of teenagers say the other day, here on the streets of Brooklyn, when it came out that Frank Ocean had revealed a past love affair with a man. There was no judgment in that remark, no gay bashing, not even the slightest hint of hatred or disgust hovering about them.

In 2005 I was a 25-year-old barista at a Starbucks in Hollywood, which was a terrible waste of my anthropology degree, insofar as an anthropology degree can be anything but wasted. But despite failing at life, I had come to think of myself as a mentor to one of my...
As both a fan of the 2012 New York Mets and someone who considers herself in touch with reality, I have absolutely no problem admitting that this team has a big problem, but it isn't on the field. The most damaging thing on this team lives in it's office. ...

An application that helps to plan your life, your business commitments and act as a social networking tool, this surely cannot exist! Yet one young Irish web developer is the driving force behind a piece of software that promises to do just that.
Resistance doesn't exist, only non-rational, nonfunctional self-preservation. Like me, you probably have noticed that you can't read the front page of a newspaper without seeing a story where two opponents -- be it global, national, political or local -- appear to be fighting each other, digging their heels in, refusing...

When your child is transgender, do you err on the side of full disclosure, thereby risking rejection, or do you proceed without exposing your child's biology, because it really shouldn't matter, right? Such was the case when Sam went to camp for the first time as a boy.
Después de la intensa jornada electoral que se vivió en México, aparecieron en las redes sociales multitud de imágenes sumamente creativas , expresando su inconformidad con un resultado a todas luces polémico. Entre esas imágenes una de ellas llamó mucho mi atención porque creo que es un retrato muy cercano al fenómeno que se vive en este país. Se trata de una fotografía de una mujer con una mirada triste y un rostro golpeado, enmarcada en el siguiente texto: "México: te convertiste en la esposa golpeada que perdonó al marido porque él le juró que ya cambió".
New York City Triathlon,
The experience became less about one person guiding another, and more about a group of ridiculous risk takers just trying to feel the exhilaration that comes with feeling your heart thump as hard as it possibly can against your chest and pushing your body to the limit and then pushing it even further than that.
"¿Quieren ver nuestros papeles? Los hallarán en las urnas, el día de las elecciones. Nuestra comunidad no será intimidada. No nos enmudecerán". Reproduciendo un lema de las luchas sindicales, indicó "no nos moverán", para terminar, en español: "¡Ahora es nuestro momento!"

Rage To Learn,
While it's true that many prodigies receive support, resources, and encouragement from parents and coaches early on, their support is typically the result of a demonstrated "rage to learn." The reason why they are so driven to deliberately practice in their domain requires explaining.
It will be fascinating to see if the financial deluge let loose by Koch/Adelstein/Romney et. al. shifts the American people away from what their hearts know is right, indeed what they've always known is right.
Since Tea Leaves was published, I have had the opportunity to talk to many LGBT people who tell me that they were the ones to "show up" when an elderly parent needed care -- even those who had tenuous relationships with their parents because of their LGBT status.
The brightest minds are now asking not how their studies might enlighten them, or how the accumulation of knowledge might benefit humanity; but instead they are asking how it will help them find a job, or how it will aid them in paying off their swelling debts.
I wrote a novel about faked death and identity fraud. And then I heard that my literary agent had been killed in a car crash. But Melanie Mills had a thing for resurrection.
It must be stated, and known, that with its conservative and traditional ways of thinking, the Italian-American community -- my own community -- has not always been accepting and understanding of my sexual orientation.
