Justin S. Rhodes | May 28, 2015 | Science
More kids today are eating highly processed foods and drinks instead of fresh fruits, vegetables and prepared foods. Does the source of the calories matter? I used to think not.

Certified Pre-Owned: Do or Don't?

Brian Moody | May 28, 2015 | Business
There are three types of answers I just can't stand to hear. Any answer that begins with an all-knowing "So...," "Yes and no," or "It depends," all drive me completely bananas. On the surface, these answers seem weak and evasive, but dig deeper.

Dave Johnson | May 28, 2015 | Politics
The House is expected to vote on fast track trade promotion authority as soon as next week. If it passes, the corporate-negotiated Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a done deal -- even though it is still secret. Why is presidential candidate Hillary Clinton still silent on this?

First of all, having kids is going to be hard. Really, really hard. You are going to be tired. Scratch that. You are going to be exhausted. Plan on nine consecutive months of never once completing a full sleep cycle. Seriously.
