A Story of Second Chances

Nancy Sharp | April 22, 2013 | Denver
Nothing could steer me off course during my inaugural year in Denver. So when I read about the widowed news anchor who was selected as a 5280 Magazine's "Most Eligible Single" in February of 2007, it was only fitting that I should reach out.

Gratitude

Alicia Garey | April 22, 2013 | Women
There is a saying that bothers me a little bit. You know the one; "everything happens for a reason." I have a hard time believing that the awful things that happen in the world were somehow meant to happen. What I can accept is that we learn from what happens.

Tights ≠ Pants

Kristina Matisic | April 22, 2013 | Canada British Columbia
Recently I've seen a few young women wearing tights as bottoms out in the world. I'm talking about actual tights. As in pantyhose. As in, pulled tight over the buttocks and somewhat transparent. As in, I've seen things I cannot un-see.

Why Men Get Away With This

Phoebe Maltz Bovy | April 22, 2013 | Women
Our image of a brilliant woman is that of an incredibly competent one -- put-together and efficient-looking. The one-in-a-million abstract-thinking mind is not one it is popularly imagined a woman could possess.

Jewish Inclusion: Dare to Dream

Elaine Hall | April 22, 2013 | Religion
I always longed to share and connect with my son in my religious observance. I dreamt that I could sit with Neal in prayer. However, like many things when you have a child with severe autism, this did not seem likely to happen. Twelve years later, my fantasy became real.

Turn It, Turn It, Turn It Upside Down: Liberating the Western Wall Again

Rabbi Michael Bernstein | April 22, 2013 | Religion
In a month where the predictable has vied with the unprecedented, may we be truly surprised by the reversal of policies of intolerance, and the respect for each others' own practices, beliefs and doubts.

Bim, the Boy From Beit Chabad

Baila Olidort | April 22, 2013 | Religion
Bim arrived at the Chabad House last year, naked but for a plastic bag that he used for some cover. One of hundreds of children exploited for profit on Kathmandu's dangerous streets, he fixed his eyes on a rabbinical student, and asked for help. He wouldn't leave until the student brought him back to Chabad.

A New Witch in Town: The Real Beautiful Creatures

Annie Finch | April 22, 2013 | Religion
At least books and films such as "Harry Potter" and "Beautiful Creatures" have started to bring the popular image of the witch beyond the realm of the 16th-century pointed hat. But now it's time to move forward still further into the 21st century.

Eating Disorders Are Tough, But We're Tougher

Alison Malmon | April 22, 2013 | Impact
Thirty million Americans will struggle with some type of eating disorder during their lifetime, and a large percentage of them will begin to experience these complex mental and physical illnesses during young adulthood. Yet, we rarely talk about them in a serious way.

Pussy Riot's 2012 Overture: A Year on From the Cathedral Stunt

Neil Durkin | April 22, 2013 | UK Politics
A year later it all seems quite surreal. Did it really happen? Did the authorities seek the arrest of the Pussy Riot women and actually put three of them on trial charged with the serious offence of "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred", a crime carrying a possible seven-year jail sentence? And were they really jailed? Sadly, of course, the answer is a triple yes.

Put a Ring On It: Can an Engagement Ring Impact Your Career?

The Levo League | April 22, 2013 | Women
Why should a little accessory impact your potential as a candidate for a job? Well, it shouldn't, but as we know, an engagement rings represent a lot more than a piece of jewelry.

The Tragic Life of Queen Esther

Yaacov Cohen | April 22, 2013 | Religion
Hearing the horror of the planned genocide, the light went on: Esther connected with her inner self and understood why she had been made queen. Esther had been made queen to save her people.

Hymn of a Catholic School Girl

Andrea Vale | April 22, 2013 | Religion
It is often assumed in today's largely secular society that attending a parochial school will lead to a parochial mind. I think I thought this, too, when I entered a Catholic high school.

We Will Never Ever Be Together

Matthew Ford | April 22, 2013 | Teen
Save that word for someone special, not some ding-dong in math class. Congratulations! I just saved you money you could've spent on boxes of Kleenex and chocolates.

Do You Have a Don Draper Complex?

The Purple Fig | April 22, 2013 | Canada Living
Don Draper cheats on his wife, never does any housework, hardly spends time with his kids -- he shouldn't be sexy, but he is. It's OK. Haven't we all been there at some point in time? If your Don Draper hasn't committed or changed his nasty ways yet, he probably won't ever.

How 'That Girl' Created This Girl

Peggy Elliott | April 22, 2013 | Fifty
'That Girl' was a pioneering concept. Bill Persky and Sam Denoff were the creators and shepherds, but Marlo shaped the direction, determined to create a role that was not a conventional girlfriend or wife -- a leading role, not a second fiddle and straight-woman.
