The irony of U.S. President-elect Donald Trump’s “America First” policy is that it could end the budding new Cold War that has been developing between the West and Russia and China. His non-ideological, deal-making approach, which doesn’t challenge how the Russians and Chinese govern themselves, promises to lessen tensions that have been getting dangerously out of control.

Secretary of State John Kerry reaffirmed the US commitment to addressing global climate change here at the UN climate conference in Marrakech, Morocco. Marrakech serves as host city for the 22nd Conference of Parties ( COP22 ) under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change ( UNFCCC ). The world must now wait to see if the incoming Trump administration will honor those commitments, or if the US will become a rogue nation that denies the very existence of climate change as a hoax “created by and for the Chinese to make US manufacturing less competitive.” Once inaugurated, Trump will stand as THE ONLY head-of-state who denies the science of climate change.

Six years ago, Jackie came back from a visit to her friend in Warsaw with the recipe for one of the great simple dumplings: leniwe pierogi, or lazy pierogi. They’re lazy (or the cook is) because, first, there’s no filling, just dough (a delicious cheese-based one at that); and, secondly, because they take just a few minutes to make. They can be eaten by themselves with butter and optional fried breadcrumbs, as a dessert, with butter and sugar, or even as a side dish with braised meat – not traditional, but delicious.

Bill Maher wants to build bridges.

Luxembourg’s foreign minister said on Monday that the Turkish government’s handling of dismissed civil servants reminded him of methods used by the Nazis, and that, sooner or later, the EU would have to respond with sanctions. More than 110,000 public servants in Turkey – from soldiers and judges to teachers and journalists – have been detained, suspended or sacked since a failed military coup in July, in what President Tayyip Erdogan’s critics say is a crackdown on all forms of dissent. Turkish officials say the measures are justified by the threat posed by the coup attempt, in which more than 240 people were killed as rogue soldiers commandeered fighter jets and tanks, bombing parliament and other buildings.

We need to care more about the standard we are allowing our politicians to set for our society. When we allow them to make hateful, bigoted, ill-informed comments, we give everyone else free reign to do it too.

Apple was as much of a wake up call to today’s design world as Sputnik was, in the last century, to the field of space exploration – no more “business as usual.” Overnight, everyone from corporations and governments to educational institutions and NGOs scrambled to get up to speed with the more design-centric organizations such as Apple, Nike, BMW and IKEA. A favored way to ramp up was to hire consultancies like IDEO, Frog or DesignworksUSA to develop one’s design strategy. Today, a better approach may be to systematically build design and innovation capabilities into the fabric of one’s organizational culture

I Wish I Could Vote For Hillary Clinton Twice

As we all know, James Comey, the director of the FBI, shook up the presidential election by informing Congress that the FBI is looking into additional emails related to its investigation of Hillary Clinton, later reported to have been found on a computer used by her close aide Huma Abedin and her lecherous husband Anthony Wiener. Director Comey said in his brief message that the emails have not been reviewed and may not be significant.  This announcement was  contrary to the Justice Department’s longstanding policy  of not commenting on ongoing investigations and not interfering in elections within the 60 days prior to the vote

The latest of Hogarth’s retellings of Shakespearean plays by eminent authors is a match made in dystopian heaven. (If such a thing could exist.) Margaret Atwood, the author behind great ecological speculative fiction like the chilling MaddAddam trilogy, meets William Shakespeare’s most climate-obsessed drama: “The Tempest.” Not, of course, that Atwood goes with the obvious, stormy angle. Instead, Hag-Seed leans into the elements of theatricality, imprisonment and deception within “The Tempest,” telling the story of Felix, a once-ambitious artistic director who’s been living in grim isolation since his righthand man stabbed him in the back and took over the Makeshiweg Theatre Festival in his place
