Healing a wounded country requires empathy over anger.

I love the morning C-SPAN show where callers voice their opinion about the news of the day. Today, while discussing the newest strain of Covid, one opined that the deaths of the anti-vaxxers will improve the general IQ of the nation and…

I wonder if LinkedIn is more of a reflection of society rather than the sole purveyor of male humble brags and low pay. I would've wished your article would have advised what somebody should do if they are in your position and how your job search is going now.

I'm entering the workforce after a long military career and had the site recommended to me. As I've not started searching in earnest yet, I haven't experienced any toxic maleness, and I'm probably immune to that, anyway. But when you start talking about the low offers, and poor treatment from recruiters, do those things go away on other methods of searching, or do you believe LinkedIn somehow colludes to bring the job offers down?

I'm interested in your journey and hope to read an article about how you landed your dream job!

Strange as it seems, social media is a relatively new phenomenon. We’re beginning to learn how to incorporate it into our lives to ensure our interactions with it are healthy.

It’s well-known that public speaking is one of our greatest fears. Why is that? It’s not imminently dangerous. You don’t hear about public speech injuries very often, but the fear people experience is very real. Instead, public speech puts us in a situation where our acceptance by other people is…

America has been busy fighting battles since her inception, and you’d think we’d be pretty good at winning wars by now. Our venture into Afghanistan is objectively a failure because after twenty years of effort, we withdrew hastily and never met our unclear objective.

The lack of a clear objective…

The attendance rate for churches has been dropping for the last few decades and more Americans now identify as agnostic. There are different explanations as to the root cause of the decline of the church, and while many Americans are fine with the demise of the moral indignation pushed by…

To our chagrin, modern people tend to define themselves by the work we do. It’s hard not to because so much of our lives are filled with work. If not work itself, we are often getting rested and ready for work or taking vacations and breaks from work. Many of…

Why You Should Garden

I’m a shitty gardener. I’ve killed more plants than I’ve grown, but I’ve learned to celebrate the small successes (a fresh cherry tomato straight off the vine, anyone?), and learned to forget about the failures.

I’m an owner of Limelight Networks (LLNW) stock, which was recently downgraded by Goldman Sachs. The reasoning for the downgrade seemed pretty straightforward, but there was no new news in the article. Basically, they said, Limelight is in a tough business with big competitors and have announced losses over the…
