First Nighter: Anne Hathaway in "Grounded," Irish Troubles in "The Belle of Belfast," Red Bull Theater's "'Tis Pity She's a Whore"

David Finkle | April 26, 2015 | Arts
Synchronicity can be a scary, shocking and ominously timely thing. Only days after Barack Obama apologizes for a drone killing hostages held by Al Qaeda in Pakistan, George Brant's Grounded opens. Yes, here's a play that's been heading, drone-like, to the Public Theater from developmental productions elsewhere for a few...

For Greater Europe We Must Embrace People-To-People Cooperation

Dominique de Villepin | April 26, 2015 | World
The Greater Europe project, which many politicians, experts and opinion makers from many European countries have been trying to promote since mid-1980s, now looks like a fantasy completely detached from reality. Neither Russia nor Europe can afford a new "Cold War."

This Year's May Day Rallies Continue Tradition of Protests for Workers Rights

Peter Dreier | April 26, 2015 | Politics
Progressives around the country, working on a variety of issues, have embraced the new May Day movement. It isn't just about workers rights on the job, or immigrant rights, or civil rights, or even about raising the standard of living for all workers. It's about what kind of country we want to be.

It's the Culture, Stupid

Randy Pennington | April 26, 2015 | Business
Culture follows performance and behavior, not the other way around. The difference between you and the competitor who is beating you is the discipline to make these choices more often and effectively.

Is America Still Exceptional?

Andy Brack | April 26, 2015 | Politics
With all of America's exceptional qualities, there's also a sense feeling for some that America's time of preeminence is in danger of passing, perhaps to China. There's a notion now that politicians and other leaders aren't doing enough to secure the nation's premier place in the world.

Rebuilding Poland's Jewish Community

John Feffer | April 26, 2015 | World
Rachel Zacharia always knew she was Jewish. Her father, a Party official, read and wrote in Yiddish, and her parents spoke Yiddish with friends. But she didn't start thinking about her Jewish identify until 1968.

Before a Decision

Jeannie Borin | April 26, 2015 | College
It's true that one of the hardest places to be is right before a decision. Options to weigh, pros and cons to think about and discuss, research to do and connections to make can be a few of the mind queries before a decision is made. Before a decision is made about which college to attend, several variables should be carefully reviewed

Sisi's Egypt Pushes Migrants Into the Sea

David Hearst | April 26, 2015 | World
Europe wept crocodile tears over the mass grave that the Mediterranean has become. Few have shown any sign that they will treat the mass drownings as what they are: a humanitarian disaster.

Why I Regretted Hiring the 'Perfect' Employee

Marc Lore | April 26, 2015 | Business
On paper, he looked like the ideal hire. Ivy League education. Top-notch work experience. Strong referrals. Rationally, all signs suggested I should hire him. And yet, I felt what can only be described as a "tap on the shoulder" -- an intuitive, but impossible-to-pinpoint feeling that something was off.

G.O.P. Creates New Welfare Campaign

Janesh Rahlan | April 26, 2015 | Comedy
The campaign, still in beta and referred to as "The Reagan Reach-Around," is being spear-headed by Speaker of the House and tangerine stunt-double John Boehner. Boehner, tired of playing second fiddle to GOP members that "people give a shit about," wanted to raise the possibility of bi-partisan agreement between the tea-party and the GOP.

Kids Must Be Our Nation's Top Priority

Jim Steyer | April 26, 2015 | Impact
As we all know, kids don't sit in corporate boardrooms and don't have the votes or economic power to make their voices heard. Yet, their success in life is absolutely essential to our nation's future. And when we stand up for all kids, we stand up for the best interests of our own kids

Popcorn Preview: Gemma Bovary

Leslie Sisman | April 26, 2015 | Entertainment
How did Martin know that Gemma was going to fall for Hervé? How did Martin know that Gemma would grow bored with Charlie? Is he going to let events play out right under his nose, without doing a thing to stop them?

Madam Secretary: We Have Some Questions

David Russell | April 26, 2015 | Politics
The list may be long, and there may be little time or opportunity to confront Clinton with policy questions, however, the more she is given the opportunity and shown the need to define a vision for America that approximates the Liberal agenda, the better off she, and we, will be.

Ilan's family isn't rich, but his kidnappers think they are... are they just after money, or is there another motive?

Banned From 4,540 Walmarts

Al Norman | April 26, 2015 | Business
The civil recovery process ensnares people who are suspected of stealing small amounts of merchandise -- even by small claims court standards. These people face criminal charges regardless of the civil claim.

The Cost of Gender Inequality

Lewis Worrow | April 26, 2015 | Impact
Gender inequality, sexual objectification and sexist attitudes need to be a relic of the past. A persons worth, to any extent or dimension, should not be determined by their physical being.

Divorce, Life and Reconciliation

TJ Trent | April 26, 2015 | Divorce
In spite of my parents' divorce and the ensuing pain, I forgive everyone involved. I forgive my parents, my grandparents, my aunts, uncles and cousins. No one is isolated from the fallout of divorce. Everyone says or does something they are sorry about years later. Let's forgive

How to Talk to Your Elderly Parent About the Dangers of Falling

Jim T. Miller | April 26, 2015 | Fifty
A simple fall can cause a serious hip fracture, broken bone or head injury, which can lead to hospital stays, disability, loss of independence and even death. But even falls without a major injury can cause seniors to become fearful or depressed, making it difficult for them to stay active.

Eugene Fram | April 26, 2015 | Business
If a nonprofit, like the one described, is attacked, not only will records be compromised, but also the reputation of the agency will be destroyed, probably along with the nonprofit organization itself.
