Ten-Nine-Eight-Seven

Al DeLuise | December 5, 2012 | Fifty
I remember the day I got engaged. It was also the day I was promoted at work. Arlene and I opened a bottle of champagne for the promotion and, while sipping our glasses on the couch, I thought "what the hell?"

Beyond Enrollment: Keeping Our Children in School -- A Perspective From Nigeria

Tokunboh Durosaro | December 5, 2012 | Impact
In Nigeria, where we work, we are squarely focused on getting African children into primary school and making sure that what awaits them is rewarding, competitive, and productive. Above all, we need to ensure that they stay.

We Are Not Finished Products

Jane Devin | December 5, 2012 | Fifty
Too often, we have a tendency to expect people to come to us like a finished product. We tend to see them one-dimensionally, through the capacity of their jobs, the character of their families or through what we know of their failures and achievements.

Friday Talking Points -- Beyond Debate

Chris Weigant | December 5, 2012 | Politics
The first presidential debate of the 2012 season happened this week, and (it pains us to say) the only person who called the outcome correctly was Chris Christie.

Daniela Papi | December 5, 2012 | Impact
It turns out, my time with Off.Grid:Electric was a final course in user-centered-design, and the lessons I learned can be applied far beyond MBA studies.

Respect for a Gay Elder, Pity for Benedict XVI

Wayne Self | December 5, 2012 | Gay Voices
Pope Benedict, a loftily placed global citizen, must know many amazing people -- heads of state, authors, musicians -- but if he took the time to know anyone like Carlos Delgado, his hurtful proclamations against LGBT people would turn to ashes in his mouth.

Presidential Debates and Middle-Class Economics

Michael Farr | October 5, 2012 | Business
While a lack of middle-class income growth can create headwinds for any economy in the short term, the longer-term risks of political instability and civil unrest can become much greater.

Tongues Untied: 'Complex' Relationships: On Love and Violence in LGBTQ Relationships

Darnell L. Moore | December 5, 2012 | Gay Voices
LGBTQ folk, just like heterosexual folk, experience intimate partner violence in our relationships, as well, regardless of race, class, ethnicity, or other identity markers. We need to talk honestly about the ways that violence shows up in our relationships, too.

32 Days Till Minnesota Votes on My Family

Rev. Meg Riley | December 5, 2012 | Gay Voices
Minnesotans United for All Families says we need to have 200,000 conversations in October if we are to win, and that we broke a record by having 10,000 conversations recorded last week. So unless things ramp up amazingly fast, it appears that we are going to lose this thing. That upsets me.

Hedgefunders, Hedgehogs, and Higher Ed

Dr. Robert Weisbuch | December 5, 2012 | Education
My own guess is that we are headed for a soft disaster, where most of the 3,000 colleges and universities in America, still offering a variety of learning places that is the world's envy, will not survive.

5 Steps to Avoid Burnout

Linden Schaffer | December 5, 2012 | Healthy Living
It's important to realize that most of us have multiple stressors in our life, and tackling them all at once can be overwhelming and counterproductive. Instead, start with one big stressor or several smaller stressors and test the waters.

Super Soul Sunday: What I Didn't Share With Oprah

Debbie Ford | December 5, 2012 | Healthy Living
Feeling ashamed of my vanity left me hating myself when indeed there was never a time I needed more of my love and acceptance. I realize now that I was so ashamed that I never mentioned it to Oprah or to the producers that so lovingly wanted to talk about a very difficult subject.

Luck Be a Lady Tonight

Randy Neece | December 5, 2012 | Gay Voices
Where is this place where two strangers can meet in the night and instantly receive more than 1,000 rights as husband and wife, while those very same rights are denied to another couple who have been together for 30 years? Where else could this place be but the Twilight Zone?

This Uncle Poodle Is Growling

Kevin Sessums | December 5, 2012 | Gay Voices
An op-ed column in yesterday's New York Times, "We're Here, We're Queer, Y'all" by Karen L. Cox, is supposed to be uplifting, perhaps, or inclusive, or something of the sort, but as a Southerner by birth, I found it ineffably sad.

Marten Weber | December 5, 2012 | Gay Voices
I have just spent a weekend talking to six adorable straight athletes about homophobia, homoerotica, homosexuality, and rugby. What did we conclude after 48 hours of male bonding and philosophizing about the state of the world?
