For the first two months of his life, all my son did was cry. He cried in the morning, while I made breakfast for my three-year-old daughter, who covered her ears in annoyance. He cried from his perch in the tiny bouncy seat on the bathroom floor, as I stood in the shower and rested my aching head on the tile wall
When Denise Dollar’s son was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes, of course her every waking minute became about taking care of his health. What she didn’t anticipate happening was the putting of herself, and her own physical and mental health, on the back burner
We recently went to our first parent/teacher association meeting in my son’s new school, and I discovered that he has a crush. He’s just finished his first marking period of kindergarten, and because we had no babysitter, we took both kids to the meeting with us.
In her 2014 Best Actress Academy Award acceptance speech for Blue Jasmine , Cate Blanchett thanked the audiences who went to see the film and then said – There are those of us in the industry who are foolishly clinging to the idea that female films with women at the center are niche experiences, they are not. Audiences want to see them, and in fact, they earn money
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and India’s populist Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, have become new buddies. Zuckerberg hosted Modi at the Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, C.A., for a townhall in September. Weeks later, it was followed by another event at the Indian Institute of Technology in New Delhi where Zuckerberg spoke to the Indian students .
There’s a meme going around, the one with two precious little girls in frilly, white matching outfits.

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.
Imagine you are trying to squeeze some toothpaste out of a tube but you have forgotten to take the top off. What happens? Deb actually did this in one of her most unaware moments and the toothpaste soon found another way out — through the bottom of the tube and all over her
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
(Sung to the tune of Maniac ): A Satanist who can zip out of chains. He is suave, and he’s smart, and clumsy. He gropes all the chicks, and eats his victim’s brains, Everybody says he’s eeeee-vil
Summary : Jason Tengco reflects on his experiences being bullied growing up, highlights the #ActToChange public awareness campaign, and closes out Filipino American History Month.

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
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.
In recent days, the Democratic Party establishment has stepped up efforts to freeze the momentum for Sen. Bernie Sanders, pressing Democratic Party office holders, who are also convention super delegates, to get in line and trying to create an impression that the contest is over
They walk among us–those agents of change. Sometimes, we just need to be reminded of who they are
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
This week, a new 21st century debate surfaced: How do we protect the data cloud we have all come to depend on when it is physically composed of cables running across the bottom of the ocean? The issue came to light after it was reported that Russian spy ships were operating near key cable routes. Former NATO Supreme Allied Commander James Stavridis writes that, “Well over 95 percent of everything moving on the global Internet passes through 200 or so highly active cables, some as deep underwater as Mount Everest is tall.” Lixian Hantover offers a profile of what the undersea cloud looks like and what its vulnerabilities are.
Thank goodness the Republican House approved a budget compromise that lifted the debt ceiling for 2 years, and ignored the Republican Presidential debates. It was a compromise because Democrats were needed to get approval in both houses of Congress. In fact, retiring House Speaker John Boehner was only able to pass it because all 187 Democrats voted for it, and only 79 House Republicans–and the Senate approved it late last night
This universal problem has turned into a global crisis, as I have heard complaints from women from all over the world and from all walks of life. Especially when their significant other suffers from a simple paper cut, the common cold, a slight headache … to a little swelling from a needle prick, and — even worse — hatching a chimerical plan to get your attention to be mollycoddled
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?
Just to catch you up. If you haven’t been following the previous installments in this series here goes: I was singing and talking too much and I got a hemorrhagic lesion on my right vocal cord (just like Adele and Sam Smith).
We take things so seriously. I’m not talking about war or climate change. I’m talking about the little things in life that really don’t deserve our attention or focus.
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.
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
The two parties have largely built a stacked deck resembling a house of cards when it comes down to determining the winning presidential candidate. In the national context, this house of cards is an Electoral College decided by one swing state like Ohio.
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).
The Internet is rife with articles about how blogging is revolutionizing the world. This is a good one — “How blogs changed everything” by Scott Rosenberg.
Do you remember the days back in college (or for the younger crowd, high school!), when people were constantly talking to you about posting to the internet with care? You may have heard things like: Don’t share personal stuff.
Photo courtesy of Flickr . Last week, I wrote about an experience I had with a broker who took offense at the use of the term “broker” in a talk I gave to a group of investors. I found that odd because he is employed by a large brokerage firm
This article originally appeared on Fatherly : If you want your kid to carve an elaborate pumpkin but aren’t quite German enough to trust them alone with knives, look no further than Mike Conner. This father of 3 not only taught pumpkin sculpting to his own stab-happy little punkins, he’s a master carver behind made-to-order jack-o’-lanterns who spends his weekends at a winery teaching tipsy couples how to sculpt vegetable masterpieces without slicing their fingers off.
In a statement issued on October 23, the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has urged the Pakistani government to bring to justice the perpetrators of recent terrorist attacks on Shia Muslims that killed over 40 people, including several children.
As a major fan of all things Halloween, there is a lot to celebrate about living in Los Angeles in October: zombie-filled mazes, transformed theme parks, and an abundance of creepy live shows. As one who dares to check them all out, you will not find anything quite as delightful, original and spooktacular as Ghoulmaster’s Haunted Playhouse playing through October 31 at Hollywood’s Hudson Theatre. A curious mashup of Pee Wee’s Playhouse , Rocky Horror Picture Show , Disney’s The Haunted Mansion, Marilyn Manson music videos, a dash of Cirque Du Soleil , and yes, even Thriller -inspired dance-stravaganza sequences, Ghoulmaster’s Haunted Playhouse is a must for every devotee of the Season of the Witch
While music festivals exist on a plane of pure pleasure, there are still a fair share of challenges that every festival attendee must face.

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.

By Brigitte Ryan When my husband and I got married, we came up with a plan of attack for the next couple years. Being that I was from New York City and he was from Paris, we’d start out with a year in NYC, then a year in Paris after we got married, and the visa situation would be easier to handle
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
“Indeed it has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time,” argued Britain’s legendary prime minister, Winston Churchill.
My room was pitch dark, but I could see and feel the inquisitive words ready to burst out of his mouth. “I dare you.” Three words strung together that made me start to question my sexuality for the first time. I grew up in in a conservative Kentucky household.
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
Last night, I was asked to take part in a career panel. As a primer for the event, the founding organizer let us know that over half of these students will graduate from college without ever having had an internship. She also instructed us to not sugar coat anything and be as honest as possible about our after college experiences.
By meQuilibrium Poor sleep leaves you with zero capacity to manage stress. And tiredness isn’t the only issue! A sleep-free night leaves you drained, dazed, clumsy, and maybe more emotional than usual (the weepy mess, the irritable crank, etc.) You likely know what you should do to avoid this — power down the electronics, limit caffeine, keep evenings as calm as you can. But somehow you’re still not getting the sleep you need
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.
Should those imposing the death penalty be prosecuted for grave violations of international humanitarian law? Too many states, from Iran, Saudi Arabia, China to the US, still execute persons, and frequently for crimes that under international law are not considered “most serious crimes.” Can the governments of such states be themselves accused of systematic criminal norms under international law codified in treaty and norms adopted by representatives of such countries
Now that it appears, thankfully, that former NBA player and Kardashian in-law, Lamar Odom, is going to be okay, we are free to banter about the preposterous serendipity of being found unconscious in, of all places, a licensed whorehouse tucked away on the remote and barren landscape of the Mojave Desert. In addition to emitting a genuine sigh of relief at Odom’s recovery, coupled, admittedly, with a raised eyebrow and roll of the eyes at the whole string of indignities that had to accompany such a circumstance, we are also free to speculate as to who among us would pay the greatest “public relations” price for such notoriety
Absent Congressional intervention, proposed amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure will become effective on December 1, 2015. Proposed changes include reduction of costs, production time and scope of eDiscovery. A recent Nevada district court decision is more surprising under this backdrop

Originally published on Unwritten by Isabelle Zanzer . If there’s one thing you need to know about Aries , is the fact that they’re fiercely loyal. It takes one to know one.
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
This article first appeared in The National Book Review 1. Ted Hughes: The Unauthorised Life by Jonathan Bate (Harper) This biography of the late British Poet Laureate Ted Hughes, perhaps best known in the United States as husband of the tragic Sylvia Plath, was among the recently announced nominees for the £20,000 Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction.

The Rabbi asked the group of women: “Is the word retirement a positive or negative expression? Please raise your hands for positive and then for negative.” It seemed I had no control over my hand as it flew up into the air when he called out the word negative! I actually wanted to raise both hands ‘high in the sky!’ My first thought was my “semi- retired husband.” My second thought, almost simultaneously, was how I was affected by his new role. I don’t believe in “packing it in” at any age.
Take a look at your paycheck. I’m willing to bet there’s a huge deduction on every paycheck stub for FICA. And I’m also willing to bet that most people don’t know what that is and can’t tell you what “FICA” stands for! Yet they allow the company to take that money right out of their take-home pay! Give it a thought.
