The aftermath of a divorce can be expensive and is an experience that is dreaded by most couples. While lovers try their best to save their marriages, sometimes divorce is the only logical conclusion. And things get hotter when there are huge amounts of wealth that need to be split.
It’s no secret that we’re bombarded with bothersome headlines more often than pleasant ones.

By AsiaToday reporter Lee Mi-hyun – Asian Millennials, born between the early 1980s-early 2000s, are eating out more often and more interested in traveling abroad than Western counterparts. In particular, Millennials in emerging markets such as China and India are seeing their average wage increase and their buying power will increase further in the coming years. Let’s look at the spending habits of the Millennials in Asia.
At first glance, it is easy to dismiss poker as a silly game that middle-aged men play at their weekly guy’s night to one-up each other and earn some treasured cash winnings. However, first appearances can be deceiving.

You may not be a therapist, but I bet you had the same experience I did the day after the election: everyone, at home, in my lobby, in the street, in the cafe, on my way to work, and of course, in my office, needed to talk.
I wrote the following this morning and now comes word tonight that Leonard Cohen, one of the greatest writers of our time (poet, novelist, songwriter) has died at the age of 82. “Give me back the Berlin Wall.” Of course, Leonard Cohen, who at the age of 82 has just released one of his greatest and most popular albums, You Want It Darker , didn’t really mean that, a quarter-century ago. He sang in the guise of the unreliable narrator in his classic, and scary, song “The Future.” Other Cohen lyrics from that little ditty, written just after the 1989 fall of the Wall, call for the return of Stalin, more people to torture, and another Hiroshima, among other horrors.
It was an impossible task. Get together the million selling lead singer of Snap! Thea Austin, who is often out touring singing one of her 20 #1 singles including “Rhythm Is A Dancer;” Morgan Mallory, in demand live artist, new album “Manifesto” out and now the former Voice contestant is a vocal teacher; Daniel Charleston, in demand in Southern California for his chorus performances and as a featured artist in Pacific Opera Project; and me, the big gay entertainer and talk show host with a dream to sing about being better.

Prologue I received an email from a connection in the art world, putting me in touch with the organization of an artist in Brussels. His staff was assembling a group of journalists to write about his gigantic solo show opening at the State Hermitage Museum, in Saint Petersburg. They wondered whether I might be interested in flying to Russia to see the show
After we turn 50, we all start to worry about cardiovascular disease and what to do about it. We might also fret about dementia and whether we will get Alzheimer’s — and arthritis is an ailment we prefer to do without. The inability to sleep, loss of energy, fatigue, anxiety, and depression might rear their ugly heads as well.
Don’t do this… A big obstacle to finding love after 50 happens when you’re NOT putting yourself in places where you can be seen and found by available men on a DAILY BASIS! Men can’t find you when you’re hiding every night at home. I know it feels great after a long day at work to snuggle up with a good book, your fave TV show or your cat or dog for some unconditional loving
When Donald Trump was one of 17 candidates vying for the Republican nomination, he was asked about autism at a debate in September 2015. Trump put the blame squarely on vaccines: “You take this little beautiful baby, and you pump — I mean, it looks just like it’s meant for a horse, not for a child, and we’ve had so many instances, people that work for me, just the other day …

Whoever wins the US presidential election will have to govern for the whole of the country. Carlos Barria/Reuters Pascal Molenberghs , Monash University People around the world are stunned at the rise of Donald Trump – from complete outsider to Republican nominee for the US presidential election, in what might yet turn out to be a close race to the White House. At the start of campaigning for nomination, almost nobody gave Trump a chance
You saw in my title, ‘The Trump Election Crisis.’ It is named after the Cuban Missile Crisis, because an authoritarian fascist has been nominated by a major political party for the first time in our country’s history.
The following is a guest blog post from the National Education Association and National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild: Eleven months ago, high school students Pedro and Jaime were detained by the Department of Homeland Security. They remain locked up indefinitely in privately run immigration prisons deep in rural Georgia, torn from their families, far from their communities, robbed of their opportunity to finish high school and facing deportation. Jaime and Pedro entered the country from Central America when they were children, making the long, harrowing journey to escape unlivable and dangerous conditions.
The first time I heard about the Movember Foundation was when my sister sent me an article about a group of guys in Australia who were growing lip-lawns for charity. And, when I finished reading it, I had some very mixed emotions

Human skin is constantly assaulted by the external environment, protecting us from air, Ultraviolet radiation (UVR), environmental pollutants, and other mechanical and chemical insults, all of which have been piled into the coined term ” exposome ,” to describe the entirety of exposures to which an individual is subjected. The skin’s ability to protect us can be easily impaired by numerous factors such as psychological stress, alcohol and illicit drug intake, and poor nutrition, all of which further allow external factors to do harm by creating free radicals such as reactive oxygen species (ROS)
The import series Brief Encounters proves again that while British actresses often seem as prim as their country’s reputation, they also love a chance to get naughty every so often. You could call Brief Encounters a period piece of sorts, since it’s set in the early 1980s, but this is a very different sort of costume drama. The outfits here run toward skimpy underwear, the type popularized in Britain by Ann Summers
A common question I get is “How do I get a bank loan to fund my startup?” The default answer is that it probably won’t happen, because most banks just don’t make bank loans to startups. The failure rate is just too high, and startups typically don’t have the assets or revenue stream to back up the loan. That’s why Angel investors are so sought after by entrepreneurs

Dear Millennials and Independent Voters, Leave the angst at home. Go vote and for vote Hillary Clinton and a Democratic Congress, and the next day join on the battle lines fighting for what we believe in.
According to the bi-annual study by the London Zoological Society and the World Wildlife Fund, global wildlife populations have declined by 58% since 1970. Freshwater environments, lakes and streams and their surroundings, says the report, are the most grievously damaged, with on average 81% of their 1970-level non-human animal life now missing. Methodological critiques of the report – deeming its authors to have mashed vast and variegated data excessively into too few signal numbers – abound. But no serious biologist denies that we are in the midst of an enormous extinction event. “Event” is the proper term, although not all mass extinctions happen with one great bang, of the Asteroid-Dinosaur variety. For perspective, the rebounding of new life after a mass extinction takes millions of years. On that scale, the demise happening right now all around us is horrifically sudden

As the election draws near, many people are wondering about the impact on their investment portfolios. It’s been a crazy season, but to answer that question, let’s make one large assumption: The American democracy will survive the season, and the American economy will continue to grow and provide jobs in the future.
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.

After all the passion that has swirled around immigration in this year’s election campaign, a curious thing happened in all three presidential debates: Latino-focused issues were hardly mentioned. When it came to real discussion, suggests Maria Hinojosa, it’s as if Donald Trump’s wall had already gone up.

Movie Review – Jackie K Cooper “The Accountant” (Warner Brothers) “The Accountant” is so fresh and so riveting you can overlook the minor plotholes that exist. Ben Affleck stars in this film as a man who is on the Autism spectrum. Not only is he good with figures but he is also a deadly force with his fists or with a gun.
Life starts to slow down when the feelings of anxiety begin to creep up, and if you’re faced with an important interview or a meeting, then “going in” anxious comes with the anticipation of a detrimental result.

More sinned against then sinner, ” goes the old expression, but what is sin and what the relationship of the sinner to the sinned? In some ways it sounds a little like the phenomenological notion of intention. The subjective individual can have intention to the object, but inanimate objects have no intention and express no volition
So many times, couples sit before me in session, and they repeat one of the main reasons that marriages fall apart, and they head towards divorce. As simple as this may sound, they have stopped expressing their love and appreciation towards each other
UC Berkeley Course: The Travesty of the Distortion of History Under the Guise of Academic Discipline
At Camp David in 2000 , during the most hopeful discussions about resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, a Palestinian representative at the table denied any Jewish historic connection to Jerusalem. Speaking of the Holy sites, he referred to the Dome of the Rock and Al Aksa mosques sitting on the Temple Mount, but labeled as fantasy the notion that there had ever been a Jewish Temple on that spot or in the city at all. This allegation at a critical juncture undercut the aspiration of achieving a two-state solution — the Jewish state of Israel and a Palestinian state — and proved devastating to the left-of-center Israeli delegation seeking a compromise that would serve the interests of both peoples.

Secretary of State John Kerry’s tireless, frenetic drive to short-circuit mass homicide in Syria by finding common ground with Russia has come to naught. It has gone up in the flames with the smoke now rising above Aleppo. It has died with defenseless, terrified civilians in their homes, hospitals, markets, and mosques: a population top-heavy with children targeted mercilessly by Russian pilots and their Assad regime counterparts
I have read Chicago Tribune editorials for almost half a century. The Tribune ‘s September 30 editorial endorsing Gary Johnson for President of the United States is the first one that ever caused me to consider cancelling my subscription – not just because I disagree with the editorial, but because it was so bizarre in its reasoning.

Last Sunday afternoon I drove to Fordham University in the Bronx, where I was a guest on Dan Romanello’s Group Harmony Review over Fordham’s radio station, WFUV. As you approach the main entrance to Fordham, you pass the baseball diamond, home field of the Fordham Rams.
