This simple technology could cut deadly rear-end car crashes by 80 percent

    Carmakers have crash-prevention technology that could radically reduce rear-end collisions, which account for about half of America's two-car accidents and kill 1,700 people a year.

    But to enjoy the life-saving benefits, drivers have to pay up first: The systems - which alert drivers or automatically slam on the brakes if it senses an upcoming accident - are optional and often expensive, leading many buyers to go without.

The classic Republican Party candidate

    Yes, there is a God. I admit, I was starting to have my doubts. Until this week, when real estate mogul and ultimate self-promoter Donald Trump announced that this time around -- unlike in 1988, 2000, 2004, 2008, and 2012 -- he's not just teasing. This time he's running for president for real.

Save Alexander Hamilton. Dump Andrew Jackson.

    We must not let this stand.

    Word leaked Wednesday night that, yes, by 2020, there will be a woman on our currency. But not, as the campaign Women on 20s suggested, on the $20. On the $10 bill - in place of Alexander Hamilton.

    This is horrible.

Labor's selfish fight on trade

    President Barack Obama, elected and reelected with significant majorities of the popular vote, believes that the American people would benefit if he gets authority from Congress to negotiate international trade agreements and then submit them to both houses for approval on an expedited basis.

Inside the (literal) witch hunt that's devouring Etsy

    One typically thinks of Etsy, the $1.8-billion marketplace for crafters and creators, as a hub of twee stationary and terrariums, of hand-painted pottery and felted ornaments and hand-lettered chalkboard art.

How do you erase the taboo of paternity leave?

    In early May, a group of about 20 Twitter employees gathered at the company's New York offices to swap stories about becoming new parents. They shared strategies for prepping to go out on leave for nearly three months. They lamented their loss of sleep. They traded ideas for limiting e-mail intrusions after the baby arrives and cutting back on travel once they head back to work. (Pro tip: Take the red-eye flight to be home for bedtime.)

Unhappy Meals

    McDonald’s is floundering.

    There’s no other way to say it. The global fast food chain has experienced declining U.S. sales for well over a year now. But why?

The pope, the saint and the climate

    "He was a mystic and a pilgrim who lived in simplicity and in wonderful harmony with God, with others, with nature and with himself. He shows us just how inseparable is the bond between concern for nature, justice for the poor, commitment to society, and interior peace."

The Delusions of Dolezal

    Rachel Dolezal, a woman with no known black heritage, has apparently, through an elaborate scheme of deception and denial, claimed for years to be a product of black heritage.

    This has sparked a national conversation about how race is constructed and enforced, to what extent it is cultural and experiential, and whether it is mutable and adoptable.

The Bush and Clinton shows get their spinoffs

    And so begins "Dynasty: Politics Edition," as the establishment candidates of 2016 reset their campaigns: Hillary Clinton did so on Saturday, with a tribute to her mom on New York's Roosevelt Island, and Jeb Bush showed off his makeover at Miami Dade College on Monday.
