Handling parole violations fairly and predictably is hard.
Whenever I have my children’s full attention, meaning they are only performing two simultaneous tasks on their cell phones, I attempt to offer fatherly advice on subjects ranging from drugs to fashion choices to not spending money like a Kardashian. So far they seem to be listening, although I know the day is coming when one bursts through the front door and excitedly screams, “Dad, don’t you think this tattoo will be perfect for my job interview?” Recently my eldest and I were discussing her chosen college major, physical therapy, a vocation that I wholeheartedly support for it meets the criteria I laid out during one of my advisory sessions: Do not choose a career that can be replaced by a computer. Physical therapist has only a 2.1 percent chance of becoming automated in the next decade or two, if one is to believe “The Future of Employment: How Susceptible are Jobs to Computerization,” a 2013 study authored at the University of Oxford
Plenty of people struggle with their relationship with in-laws … but not quite like this. Marilyn claims her son-in-law, Adam, is an abusive, controlling, disrespectful, rude, vulgar, and a selfish freeloader, and Adam has cursed at his mother-in-law, whom he says needs to butt out of his marriage.
The other day I came across my journals from when I was going through my divorce. It was a very sad, contentious, stressful and emotionally taxing time as evidenced by the words I read on those pages. I remembered some, but not all, that I had written seven years before.
For Neil and Luke Markey, entrepreneurialism is in their blood. But it took nearly a decade, a multi-year stint in the army, and an uninspiring corporate job to push them to where they are today: The two brothers are the founders of ShieldCo , a design company based out of Frederick, Md.
Having a child has taught me all sorts of things: How to be patient, how to laugh at myself, and how to function on less sleep than I thought possible. One of the most helpful things she’s taught me, though, is how to eat. Yeah, I knew how to put food in my mouth and chew and swallow before she came along 18 months ago, but now I feel like I really understand what it means to be a mindful and intuitive eater, just by observing her
Have you ever really thought about how terms take on new meaning over time? When I was a kid, the word “sick” actually meant sick

After Bridget says she found an empty bottle of whipped cream hidden behind a stack of DVDs in her teenage daughter’s room, she decided to do a little snooping. She found a letter from her 38-year-old brother-in-law Kevin written to her 16-year-old daughter Grace that read: “I love you with all my of my heart. The way I love you is unique, and I don’t know how to explain it.

Beating the Heat in Dubai: Alternative Air Conditioning Refrigerants Show Big Gains at High Temperature
This post written by Alex Hillbrand, NRDC’s HFC Technical Analyst Concern about the efficiency of air conditioning in very hot climates has been an obstacle to winning agreement on a phase-down of the powerful heat-trapping chemicals known as HFCs (hydrofluorocarbons). Now we have new test data on the performance of next-generation refrigerants in air conditioners commonly used in homes and buildings.

Medicare’s open enrollment period is the time of year when you can change your Part D, prescription drug insurance or change from traditional Medicare to Medicare Advantage, or change Medicare Advantage plans. Open enrollment runs from October 15 through December 7th.
Open enrollment for the third year of “Obamacare” starts November 1st, and if you want your coverage to start on January 1, 2016, your enrollment deadline is December 15th. (Final deadline is January 31, 2016 for coverage starting March 1st.) The penalty for not having insurance coverage rises to $695 per person ($347.50 per child under 18) or 2 percent of MAGI (whichever is greater) for 2016, so it’s important to get in on the open enrollment period

The conjunction between the efforts on Syria and Yemen is interesting, especially as the talks also coincided with Saudi Arabia for the first time agreeing to Iranian participation in an international conference on Syria.
Why people happily spend money on snacks, smartphones, and slot machines–but not coaching or therapy.
I recently entered my 29th year of practice in the field of emotional health. Through the decades, I’ve seen a number of things change–hairstyles, clothing trends, music, cars, technology, and communication preferences

I’ve never been to summer camp. Always wanted to. In my 14-year-old fantasies, it was a place you sat on a dock at dusk with the best friend you wish you had at home, telling her your deepest and darkest until a sporty, pony-tailed counselor dragged you kicking and screaming back to your bunk
It may not seem so at times, but the USA still commands more of global mindshare than any other nation. What we say and do influences people of all nations in ways meritorious, deleterious, inspirational and inflammatory. The world hangs on every vote in every community in every state of our nation for news of what they hope or fear the outcome to be on the first Tuesday after the first Monday of November on even years

A few months ago I was asked to write endorsement for a forthcoming book called Pound for Pound: A Story of One Woman’s Recovery and the Shelter Dogs Who Loved Her Back to Life by Shannon Kopp, and I was hesitant because my desk was overflowing with other “stuff” that needed to be done. I’m sure you all know the story — how can I possibly do any more? But, something about the book’s description caught my eye and heart, and I thought about it and then said “yes,” and I’m sure glad that I did.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. For the past 18 years, my organization, the Violence Policy Center , has published an annual study on the most horrifying aspect of domestic violence: women who are murdered by men.
Matthew Broderick & Annaleigh Ashford (photo: Joan Marcus) “Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one, is a life diminished.” –Dean Koontz I know a few people who don’t like dogs and I’ve also met some who don’t like chocolate, rainbows or red wine so perhaps Sylvia , which opened tonight at the Cort Theatre isn’t for everyone but it most certainly is a crowd pleaser. Greg (Matthew Broderick) finds a dog — Sylvia – (Annaleigh Ashford) in the park and brings her home as a way to ease the pain of his mid-life crisis. His kids have just left the nest and his wife Kate (Julie White) is hoping to spend time at museums, dinner parties and Knicks games instead of being tethered to a dog, so this is – to say the least – a huge disruption in their lives.
Earlier this year, the Newseum Institute asked 1,000 Americans to name their rights under the First Amendment. A clear majority listed freedom of speech first — before freedom of religion, assembly, and other core civil liberties. And that makes sense
Dear Savvy Senior, Can you give us a rundown of how reverse mortgages work?
In the Fall of 2013 I wrote my first posting for the Huffington Post. It happened as a result of serendipity, as my daughter’s best friend was dating a then young Huffington Post editor. When I mentioned to him the talk I was giving around the country, Breath in a Ram’s Horn , about the relationship between classical music and Judaism, he thought it would be of interest to his readership, particularly as it would appear at the time of the Jewish holidays.

This is a big week for celebrating “difference.” Sesame Street introduces a new character named Julia. She has autism, and it will be interesting to see how she interacts with Cookie Monster, Elmo, and the rest of the colorful crowd. On HBO, the documentary How to Dance in Ohio, directed by Alexandra Shiva, features a no less colorful group of young teens from Columbus with autism, in the care of clinical psychologist Dr.
Buckminster Fuller’s Vision of A World That Works For Everyone; Integrity & Personal Experience Are Key
On this the hundred year anniversary of Buckminster Fuller being expelled from Harvard for the second time (1914 and 1915), I stop to remember what we can all learn from a man many of us believe was a Bodhisattva well on the Path to becoming a Buddha.
On a recent trip to a medium security prison I and other Massachusetts legislators took, an elderly inmate serving a life sentence who was dying with lung asked me, “after I die, where is my body going to be buried.” I did not know the answer, but I found out before I left the prison. Aging Inmates In states across America, there are numerous inmates serving life sentences. These inmates did awful things to earn these life sentences

I question my marriage all the time. When my husband and I get into a fight because he’s so stubborn it pisses me off to the point of throwing things of across the room, I ask myself if it’s possible for us to peacefully coexist. When I feel disappointed because he doesn’t spoil me with presents or capitulate to all my demands, I ask myself if he is really capable of giving me everything that I need
As the cost of attending a four year college or university continues to grow throughout the country, community colleges have assumed an increasingly important role in our higher education system. Tuition and fees at community colleges are one third those at public four year colleges and universities, on average.
Ever since I started writing this blog, people have been asking, “When do you find the time to write?” I don’t have a great answer for them; somehow I just find the time. It’s never the “perfect time,” mind you. It’s any little bit I can steal from any little place.
Recently I came across an article in The New York Times reporting that successful hip and knee replacement surgeries can increase sexual activity and improve the quality of one’s love life: “Surprise Path to Better Sex: Hip Surgery.” Excited by the possibilities, I announced this finding to my workout class for men and women over 60.
There’s a new big dipper in the nighttime sky. No, it’s not a cozy constellation, but a distant, non-descript star that behaves like a shipboard semaphore, beaming flashes of light into the cosmic darkness that seem random, but may not be. While the luminous output from everyday stars is relentlessly steady, this one occasionally dips its brightness as much as 20 percent, suggesting either that it is orbited by lumps of dust, rock or other opaque material, or – and hang onto your desk chair – there are residents in this stellar system who have deliberately built hardware of a size and extent big enough to intercept a substantial amount of their sun’s output.
Plenty, according to new report from BSA | The Software Alliance We are generating more data today than ever before – and it’s improving everything from healthcare and auto safety to education and air travel. More than 90 percent of the world’s data was created in the last two years, and we now are doubling the amount of data created every two years.
After talking about this for over a week, tomorrow we’ll be waking up at two in the morning to begin our trek to the summit of Cerro Ishinca, maxing out at 18,140 feet of vertical challenge in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru. This is a new experience for me, a new challenge, a new activity.

"Never Surrender," John Kelley’s Chronicle of Winston Churchill, Great Britain, And The Fateful Summer Of 1940, Is A Feast For History Buffs
In the short-form version of Winston Churchill’s life — I’m thinking of Paul Johnson’s excellent 192-page biography — we meet the Churchill who’s become legend, a late-life hero who saved the free world. John Kelly’s “Never Surrender: Winston Churchill and Britain’s Decision to Fight Nazi Germany in the Fateful Summer of 1940” weighs in at 384 pages followed by 20 pages of footnotes, and offers a more nuanced view.
I’m feeling like a mad scientist this fall. I had been grappling with two big questions this summer and decided to explore them both through one grand experiment. My two big questions were: Why am I here
You would think an organization that shouts about being the world’s leading animal rights group — the collective voice of the voiceless — would rise to defend dogs who are misunderstood, abused, tortured, and forced to fight. Dogs about whom myths run rampant.

The older we get, the harder it may seem to be silly. Sure, you can get down on your hands and knees (hopefully) and kid around with your grandkids. That child’s play may, however, seem too undignified for you to engage in around your work buddies or maybe even your neighbors.
It has been said that racism is America’s original sin. And today, well into our country’s third century, we are far from free of it. “Separate but equal” is no longer the law of the land, but for too many people, it is still a fact of life
When I used to work in corporate entertainment, I had the most spectacular boss. He was in his late 40s, and while he rarely worked out beyond an occasional swim (he was managing a frantic work life, kids – the whole deal), he always stayed trim and fit and had tons of energy
There is a powerful movement in the United States to increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour. That’s the amount necessary for a family of four to live just above the national poverty line. But there are hundreds of thousands of workers in this country who have been left out of this fight, who will never benefit no matter how much the minimum wage is raised, and who share one characteristic.
For many months, I worked at a consumer electronics store. While there, I learned some important lessons from the owner, who we will call Jason.
United States Secretary of Education Arne Duncan delivered a speech at the National Press Club on September 30th that should serve as a powerful call for the country to make a massive shift in the allocation of funding for prisons and schools. Duncan pointed out that spending on the state and local correctional system has gone up twice as much as spending on K-12 education over the last three decades in the United States.
