As a director, Sachs evokes the masterly Robert Altman, as in an extraordinary sequence that takes us from George and Ben's quietly majestic wedding back to the Manhattan apartment that they share, and where their loved ones gather to marvel at the strength of their bond.
E-cigarettes illustrate how harm reduction approaches to drug policy, particularly maintenance or substitution therapies, are at once both filled with promise and deeply misunderstood.
Humane, scientifically sound methods for handling dog aggression are not flashy. They don't come with wild promises, bells or whistles. Proper behavior modification can take time and patience. What it doesn't do is scare the dog, break the trust between dog and owner, or make the problem worse.
America! You know what you need? Besides better bourbon, less Jesus and fewer conservatives? That's right: A good whoopin'. A serious spanking. Maybe even one of those terrifying, NFL-grade spankings so vicious it raises welts and yelps and not a little blood, all administered with a belt, or a tree...
We all have desires -- whether it's the desire for money, fame, or a new car; to lose weight, be healthy, or have better relationships; to find the love of your life; or simply the desire to be happy.
Walking away from a relationship that isn't fulfilling you anymore is a huge right of passage for our daughters. And if they trust us enough to come to us for help during this journey, how lucky are we?
The analysis of Americans' diets shows just how important the campaign against trans fat has been to the public's health -- especially that of low-income Americans -- and why FDA needs to bring it home.
The NFL has not even begun to systematically examine holistically whether the on-field behaviors they champion translate into off-field recklessness. If NFL leadership fails to make that connection and render changes to the sport's culture of violence, then the banner of flag football may get the call to save the league even sooner than I once predicted.
First they learn words: "Dada!" "Nana!" "Milk!" Then they learn how to use them: "I do it?" "Mine!"
Then they learn how to use them against you: "Go away!" "I don't love you anymore." "I hate you."
Big at the VMAs, but not so much at the Emmys, was the ponytail. Ariana Grande had a beautiful, high ponytail in creamy mocha, reminiscent of the late 60s and 70s, for her appearance on the red carpet and performance at the VMAs.
By having an exact time standard humans added a very real and meaningful layer of stress to our lives that still impacts all of us today. The lack of an exact time standard allowed for far more flexibility in just about ever aspect of everyone's life.
The word "best" can apply some internal pressure and adds an element of judgment. Mindful, by contrast, encourages action and a way of being. Here are five important aspects that can help you to be the most mindful version of yourself!

I started this series to shine a light on some stellar records from the '90s that may have been overlooked. Now that a few decades have passed, we can get some perspective and see how they've held up over the years.
I never met Mr. Seeger, but in my journey as a writer, I've been privileged to meet and befriend other artists. Two of them, Malcolm Guite and Steve Bell, are national treasures in their native England and Canada respectively. Both are musicians and poets -- and both are marking milestones just now.
Over the years, Rosh Hashana has become associated with many recognizable objects and foods which you might see depicted on Rosh Hashana greeting cards or synagogue pamphlets.
The contestants will probably once again take a back seat, awkwardly watching the continuation of the Adam-Blake bromance while awaiting meaningful feedback (which may or may not even come) that could help steer them toward a career as a famous singer. Which, don't forget, is supposed to be the premise of this whole thing.
How would Americans fare under losing Texas compared to the British losing the Scots? The idea of a Texas secession may seem less likely than the Scots leaving the U.K., but the vote might be a lot closer than anyone in the U.S. would like.
