A test flight of Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo went horribly awry today, ending in at least one death of a test pilot and severe injuries for another. The spaceplane is built for the extremely young market of space tourism, and the wreckage strewn across the Mojave Desert in California today is undoubtably a setback for the infant industry. “Virgin Galactic’s partner Scaled Composites conducted a

Commentary Republicans appear to be on the verge of winning control of the US Senate and padding their majority in the House, but don’t expect those gains – if they occur – to satisfy the party.

This article is part two of a series. Just as their general manager Brian Sabean has done things in a markedly different way than what is trendy and salable for the mythmakers and armchair experts today, the manager that’s been in charge for the three World Series wins in five years, Bruce Bochy, is also different from what most organizations look for in a manager in this era.

Marketers hate certain words. Spoken or written phrases such as big data, viral, snackable content, bleeding edge, all result in rolled eyes and ignited gag reflexes. But the annoyance is justified.

One day this past summer my friend Paula Lysak and I decided to go on a field trip. It wasn’t to the Hamptons, the Catskill Mountains or the Jersey Shore.

"If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it." - Anais Nin "I write to taste life twice"--Anais Nin I am a wife, mother, educator, advocate who might occasionally--ok, more oft than not-- feel too much, think too much, cuss too much, over analyze, over-react, overly sensitive--but I don't know any other way to be--that's just me. If you find any of my articles witty, enjoyable, provocative, infuriating, aggravating, insightful or educational--then my work here is half way done.
