Okay – this isn’t the first time you have seen this headline, right? As a matter of fact, there was an article on Inc.com yesterday titled The 1 Thing You Need to Achieve Work-Life Balance – and that prompted my FB Live video yesterday and this Post today.
For millions of Syrian refugees, what used to be simple tasks back home — such as doing laundry or cooking dinner — have become complicated, time-consuming burdens in refugee camps and informal settlements they now live in. In Lebanon, for instance, there are more than 1 million Syrian refugees , and displaced families there are living in dire conditions. More..
When Rochelle, a patient at Northwestern University’s Comprehensive Transplant Center, first learned that no one in her immediate family was a suitable candidate for partial liver donation, she did what most do in today’s day and age – she took to Facebook.
At last month’s G7 Summit at Ise-Shima, I was in a part of Japan not readily featured in travel brochures. It has no hustle and bustle like global megalopolis Greater Tokyo, with its 35 million that make up over one quarter of Japan’s entire population
Polls show Hillary Clinton narrowly ahead in the California Democratic primary. “Brexit” polls show a lot of uncertainty about the UK’s June 23 referendum on whether to stay in the European Union. And most Americans back overtime eligibility expansion
When Muhammad Ali refused to take the oath of induction into the U.S. Army in 1967 in Houston, Texas, he became a hero to those that were against the war, but he also became toxic to many that were in favor of it and even to some of those in the mainstream.
This election cycle has been heavy on rhetoric and light on policy. Given that nearly 50% of Americans consider themselves angrier than a year ago – with white Republicans being the angriest – it’s no wonder that rather than having substantive discussions, most solutions being offered currently are knee jerk reactions that have little to no factual support. A prime example of this are the changes many conservatives endorse for “fixing” public education

Whenever someone asks me how I afford to travel, I have to force myself not to respond with “selling Nutella by the spoonful and procrastinating Sallie Mae payments.” It’s just so funny because people think there’s this magic formula out there. This one-size-fits-all-encompassing route that gives everyone an equal chance of seeing the world.
When you visit Mexico there are a few things you can always be certain about on your trip. One is plenty of sunshine and two is plenty of choices where to stay. While each destination in Mexico has a unique feel, the Grand Velas in Mexico’s lush Riviera Maya area is one place I highly recommend
Of all the worries expressed over a Trump presidency (e.g., We’ll lose the respect of the world, He’ll deport the Mexicans, He’ll prohibit Muslims from entering the U.S., He’ll repeal Roe v. Wade, He likes Putin too much, He couldn’t find Estonia or Cambodia on a world map if his life depended on it, etc.), the silliest one is this: “As U.S. president, Trump would have his finger on the button, and that is terrifying.” Really

Lately, I have been thinking a lot about how we as a culture spend so much time focused on physical exercise–on our physical bodies and our physical world–and perhaps not as much time as we should on exercising our souls and spirit. More…
North Korea without doubt is unique. If nothing else, its claimed accomplishments rival the faux Russian achievements cited by Pavel Chekov in the original Star Trek. Yet only the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has established a Communist monarchy, now reaching the third generation.
Secret is Out It is no secret that solar energy is a money maker. Since 2011, the cost of solar electricity has been less than what consumers pay their electric utilities in a growing swath of America. Solar costs have plummeted like a rock and are continuing to drop

In a 336-minute, seven-game series, the Golden State Warriors needed less than 170 seconds in the third quarter to dismantle, dishearten and dispose of the Oklahoma City Thunder, doing what they do best and knocking down five treys in three minutes to earn their second consecutive berth in the NBA Finals with a 96-88 victory Monday night. Of course, it started and ended with Stephen Curry.

The boy was taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries , according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Earlier this month, I thought Notre Dame was being clueless when it chose this year to honor Vice President Joseph Biden and former House Speaker John Boehner. The Catholic men both received Notre Dame’s Laetare Medal for their “leadership, civility and dedication to the nation.” Catholic commentator Christopher J

Reported injuries have decreased in the meat and poultry industry, but plant workers still face grave dangers on the job — and there’s reason to believe the safety hazards are worse than they seem, according to the Government Accountability Office. Many workers are unlikely to speak out about health and safety risks for fear of losing their jobs, the office said in a report issued Wednesday.

Let’s put an end to NOT looking people in the eye so you don’t have to smile or say hello. I think 2016 should be The Year of Connection, and I’m not talking digitally here, but face-to-face

A back-and-forth battle in Game 1 of the NBA Western Conference Finals led to a surprising early-series deficit for the Golden State Warriors. And, for a time Wednesday, it looked as if Game 2 was headed for another photo finish in the Warriors’ showdown with the Oklahoma City Thunder. But then, about halfway through the third quarter, Warriors MVP Stephen Curry got a little mad
When I look into the future, I don’t know what it will be like. I don’t know how self-driving cars will affect Gdansk and its traffic. I don’t know how crypto-currencies will change the way our entrepreneurs conduct business.

In the past, the first thing I’d tell you about IRS notices would be “don’t panic.” These days, while staying calm is still important, the first thing you need to do is make sure the notice is authentic and is really from the IRS. There are so many scams involving taxpayers information that in the past week at least seven #IRS tweets warned of scams ranging from phishing for payroll information to scammers trying to collect “past due taxes.” The IRS sends millions of notices and letters for many different reasons

Ten years ago, while honeymooning in Maui, my husband asked a local woman if she had any advice for our first visit. In her lovely Hawaiian accent she replied, “just go with the flow man, that’s all, just go with the flow.” It’s a sentiment we exchange with one another often, especially when we find ourselves stuck in difficult situations
The Obama administration on Friday will tell schools and colleges nationwide they must allow transgender students access to bathrooms consistent with their gender identity. The Justice Department and the Education Department, in guidance directed at every American public school district, will admonish educators to treat transgender students consistent with their gender identity, regardless of what sex is listed on student records.

The No Child Left Behind Act, the controversial Bush-era education law, promoted an emphasis on reading and math, sometimes at the expense of other subjects. Now, the nation’s new education secretary is calling on schools to expand their focus to other subjects and give students a more balanced set of course offerings. Secretary John King Jr. — who was confirmed in March — is expected to tout the benefits of a “well-rounded education” in a speech at the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts on Thursday.
Activist Alice Paul is Recognized as President Obama Designates National Monument Honoring Women’s Equality Alice Paul , women’s rights activist and founder of the National Woman’s Party, had a motto: “Deeds not words.” On the path to achieving equality in society, it is, more than anything, our actions that demonstrate our commitment and bring about lasting change.
A federal court heard oral arguments in a mortgage lender’s challenge to a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau fine. The judges present seemed open to ruling the entire agency unconstitutional. An unfavorable ruling would be the biggest legal setback yet for the CFPB, but it is liable to be overturned on appeal
Through the platform of A Humane Nation , I report on so many good developments for animals — from retailers switching to cage-free or crate-free animal products, to major companies going fur-free, to the swell of global outrage over the killing of endangered animals for trophies or profit, to the recent burst of federal rule-making actions for animals. But make no mistake, we are still in a fight for the lives of animals, and there are special interests and lawmakers beholden to them who want to thwart our progress.
