Handling parole violations fairly and predictably is hard.
There are days when you just want to crawl under your desk and hide in the fetal position. I felt like that this morning
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.

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

Justin Vidamo / Flickr Dealing with the paperwork and procedures of procuring an international visa may not be the most exciting part of traveling overseas, but it’s certainly an important step in the trip-planning process. Getting a visa can be complicated, laborious and stressful, but not impossible with proper planning. If you want to go to a place where a visa is required for entry (think: Russia, China and Kenya), read these tips to make the experience as painless as possible.

This year’s third Awards dinner honored four people for their remarkable work in films. The emotional tribute was to the real heroes of the film Argo – Tony Mendez and his wife, Jonna, as well as Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor. Sadly, the Ambassador had planned to attend the award ceremony, but died earlier this month and his funeral was held the day before the event
After the most recent GOP Presidential whatever-you-want-to-call-it, some of you looking desperately for a Republican who seems, well, not kooky may have cast your gaze toward Ohio Governor John Kasich. He’s low-key, he’s intelligent, his eyes don’t rotate in different directions when he campaigns, and hey! he’s from Ohio, home of presidents, even if you can’t quite remember which
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
After all these years, I finally made it to the Vizcaya Sundowners Halloween Ball. The 29th annual event, to raise money for the upkeep of Vizcaya was held Friday night. “Vizcaya engages the community and its visitors in learning through the arts, history and the environment
It boggles the mind that the White House, in announcing the deployment of more Special Operations to Syria, still insists on saying that they won’t have a “combat mission.” They will tell you that sending Special Operations to advise, train, and assist means troops will behind the front lines, and thus, won’t be heading over with orders to join battles. I was an adviser in Iraq, in 2011, and I can tell you, they’re likely to face combat, whether that’s their mission, or not
There’s a chance to score a climate victory next week on the super-pollutants called hydrofluorocarbons or HFCs – one that would give a boost to the Paris climate summit next month. I am in Dubai for the annual meeting of the Montreal Protocol, the treaty that saved the ozone layer. This is the last important international meeting before world leaders gather at the Paris climate summit.
Please listen: I need to tell you a story. The story of a 5-year-old boy who was attacked at his own school. A story where violence, aggression, and viciousness lurked through the halls of a place that is supposed to be safe
The Case for Philosophy in America’s High Schools — Part 5: Why is There Suffering in the World? — Eight Theories
We were dealing with Aeschylus’s view of how one might reconcile the goodness of God with the fact that so many good people suffer, as do children and infants, and yet so many bad people prosper. Why was the natural world created in such a way that animals suffer? Why is nature so cruel if it comes from God’s hand?
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
Are White House Insiders with Connections to Big Oil Undermining the President’s Climate Change Agenda?
With only one year to go before the next presidential election, President Obama has begun to focus more intently on his legacy. As such, for much of this year, he has emphasized his belief that climate change is an existential threat that must be addressed through clean energy. If that’s the case, he must explain his decision to gut the Renewable Fuel Standard and hand Big Oil a decisive political victory.
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.
Only in a world where Cosmopolitan magazine can declare the Kardashians “America’s First Family” and the multi-billionaire loose cannon Donald Trump is perceived by millions as the potential steward of our nuclear arsenal could about-to-be Speaker of the House Paul Ryan be savaged as insufficiently right-wing. This is after all a man who made his bones in Congress and the Republican Party as an Ayn Rand-spouting, body building budget-buster slashing away at the body politic like a mad vivisectionist, as well as an anti-choice, pro-gun zealot who never met a government program he liked (except the military, whose swollen budget he would increase until we are all left naked living in a national security state).

Trauma is startling. It picks you up, shakes you senseless, and plops you down facing a completely different direction. Having recently hopped off of this merry-go-round, now it’s up to you to figure out how the hell to reconnect with self and create a new normal
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
This week’s “Chicken Soup For The Soul” moment brings you one very dedicated mom. Twenty years ago, Vivian Greaves walked down the alley to the Covenant House with no place else to turn for help.

By Zahra Barnes for Life by DailyBurn The best way to set your day up — and give yourself the energy to power through it — is to have a healthy breakfast . “Breakfast is like putting gas in your car before you go on a long trip,” says Abby Langer, RD.

In mezzo alle continue incursioni aeree e durante il massacro di Siriani innocenti di cui siamo tutti testimoni, la recente distruzione dell’Arco di Trionfo a Palmira in Siria da parte dei militanti dello Stato Islamico non ha semplicemente ridotto in macerie un altro monumento della storia romana.
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.

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.
Let’s take a moment to ‘digest’ the fact that every year…. 1.3 billion tonnes of food go to waste; Close to one billion people go undernourished; Another 800 million people go hungry; The 300 million tonnes of food fit for consumption that are wasted in industrialised countries alone could feed all of those going to bed hungry. This year’s World Food Day was particularly relevant because it added to the global momentum on sustainability.
According to Google Ngram , there has been a surge in the use of the words happy, honest, hungry and humble after a steady decline over the last century. The popularity of these adjectives may be a reflection of societal values

Cynics, but not only cynics, like to observe, not always inaccurately, that Christians are never happy unless they are fighting–each other.
Repairing Broken Adoptions: Symposium Brings Together Leading Child Welfare and Legal Advocates to Address Permanency for Foster Youth For many young people who are adopted out of the foster care system, the promise of a “forever family” is an illusion. In New York City, anecdotal data from child advocates suggests that thousands of children adopted out of foster care end up displaced from their adoptive home
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.

When George Osborne visited China last month, he spoke gushingly about the huge opportunities for British businesses there. “Part of my job here”, he said, “is to help explain to the British people what’s going in China and how exciting it is.” If he had been prepared to meet them, activists from China could have told Osborne a thing or two about what’s really happening in China today.
Click for Verizon’s “Trust the Facts” . Verizon created “Trust the Facts”, a fact sheet and talking points for the Verizon staff.

The other night, Democratic candidates for president spent a bunch of time debating whether public college should be free for some people or free for all people. It was pretty remarkable. How did that happen

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.
Since I started My Year of TED in 2011, I’ve found myself explaining TED quite a lot. Last week I had to do this again, and I was reminded of a blog post I did in 2012. I thought I’d share it with you here – noting that there have been hundreds of new talks since this time, but I think these still hold as a great introduction to TED.
By James M. Dorsey The Israel Football Association (IFA) acting on orders of the police has suspended what it calls ‘sensitive’ matches, a reference to professional and amateur games between Israeli Jewish and Israeli Palestinian squads.
Bernie blew it. By embracing rather than confronting Hillary Clinton, Sen. Sanders fell into the trap of sellout mainstream politics, improving his personal brand as an appealing but ultimately non-threatening advocate for the downtrodden while studiously avoiding any suggestion that the smiley-faced woman standing next to him is deeply complicit in Wall Street’s rape of the nation
After two seemingly-endless Republican debates, this week the Democratic candidates for president finally got their turn to face off against each other on national television. While the audience was smaller (since Donald Trump was not on stage), it was still a lot bigger than most political debates in the past — over 15 million people watched on CNN, and a further million livestreamed it.

Sales promotions are incentives aimed at prompting buyers to buy quicker. They often include discounts, rebates, coupons, or free items to incentivize buyers to purchase by a deadline. Technically, sales promotions also include strategies for motivating sales people to sell quicker
Having both grown up with dogs in our lives, my boyfriend Aaron (now my husband) and I always knew that owning a dog was in our future. Canine companionship was something we wanted to experience together, and it felt like a natural next step in our relationship.

Employment is hard to come by for women living with HIV/AIDS in India. People afflicted with HIV/AIDS bear the brunt of incredible social stigma, and this is exacerbated when the person afflicted is a woman. In 2012, The Didi Jewelry Project was founded with the aim of providing a compassionate space and an opportunity for employment for women affected by HIV/AIDS.
An ad on Fox Television News today (October 14) provided an 800 telephone number to take a Presidential preference poll. The ad gave you a choice of five Republican candidates.

With Hillary Clinton, the most serious female Presidential candidate in election history headlining tonight’s Democratic debate, (and Carly Fiorina’s standout performance in the last Republican debate) the influence and interests of women voters will be a major factor in the Presidential campaign. If the trends of the past 35 years hold, women will make up the majority of voters in 2016.
Congratulations on being a new mom! Isn’t it a cherished miracle? And yet the most harrowing and painstaking thing you’ve ever done? Aren’t you more tired and overwhelmed than you ever thought possible while simultaneously feeling convinced your heart will explode from the crazy love?
Anyone who watched Chris Legh’s epic Kona Ironman performance back in 1997, has to have asked, “Is winning worth dying for?” For those who don’t know, Chris collapsed 50 yards from the finish line after 140.5 miles of racing, lost part of his intestines because of it and could have easily died. The video of it is hard to watch. It shows him staggering like a punch-drunk fighter (which he pretty much was at that point), fall, haul himself up one body part at a time, weave, slip, collapse in a broken heap, throw up a few times, seem to hear the crowd pushing him on, then try again — only to fall even harder, and, ultimately, fail.
