Screenshot: Freelance Entrepreneur The daily life of the freelance entrepreneur can be really filled with lots of irregularities and uncertainties but most of us would rather be self employed than have a 9-5 job and work for someone else.

It is not a new problem. Death from overwork has been publicly discussed for decades in Japan. Yet the recent suicide of a woman in Tokyo to escape the ravages of overwork at Dentsu has come to represent how endemic the issue has become for many who seek a better life in Japan.
Lincoln Center Theater and Playwrights Horizons, two of New York’s prime non-profits with well-earned reputations for quality plus numerous award-winners between them, both have intimate houses upstairs with small-for-off-Broadway capacities (under 130 seats). The Claire Tow (LCT3) and Peter Jay Sharp (PH) Theaters are often used for adventurous-but-chancy fare, with successful productions subsequently transferred to the mainstage or simply skipping to Broadway. Since both organizations have chosen to open their newest offerings tonight, we have no option but to place them in the very same review.

For the past few weeks, national nightly news broadcasts have been leading with weather stories. California and Florida have been burning out of control, a tornado two miles in diameter wiped one Kansas town off the face of the map, and agrarian Missouri has been flooding. Fires and tornadoes, although extraordinarily dangerous and deadly, move fast and decisively, cutting a swath through all natural and manmade objects with reckless abandon
Donald Trump’s crime-fighting super cop from Chicago does exist after all!

Fascinating live chat yesterday with Martin Köppelmann, an Ethereum development expert and founder of the Gnosis prediction market, which is built atop Ethereum.

Remember the famous scene in Bergman’s The Seventh Seal in which the Knight (Max von Sydow) plays chess with death (Bengt Ekerot). You may remember that Woody Allen turned it to comic advantage in a famous New Yorker piece called “Death Knocks.” But imagine Donald Trump as the Knight and Vladimir Putin, Death. Of course, the piece Trump would be willing to sacrifice is The Crimea ( “Trump to consider recognizing Russian Control of Crimea,” USA Today , 7/31/16)

Trump has repeatedly accused the judge, who was born in Indiana, of bias against him due to the judge’s Mexican heritage
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
When the United Nations convenes this week for its High Level Meeting on HIV/AIDS, the corridors will be buzzing with talk of “the end of AIDS.” UNAIDS tells us that it will happen provided key testing and treatment targets, including doubling the number of people on antiretroviral treatment, are achieved within four years.

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.

In the life cycle of every child star, there comes a moment when they have to distance themselves from the thing that made them famous.

The boy was taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries , according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
The editorial board of the Financial Times isn’t exactly stacked with bleeding-hearted environmentalists.
