Meditate for Success

    We ambitious strivers seeking guidance from fitness pros, decluttering experts and TED talks often find the day divided in two unequal parts. Three-quarters goes to overworking. The remaining quarter is for countering the ill effects of overworking. We do the latter not necessarily to nurture our souls but to boost performance during the working hours.

    You see, overworking and stress slow our productivity. Herein lies a paradox.

Lone wolf extremism easy to develop, hard to track

    Dylann Roof, the alleged shooter in the Charleston, South Carolina, church massacre, was the architect of his own radicalization, drawing from the deep well of online hate to transform himself into a lone wolf domestic terrorist, according to law enforcement officials and experts on the white supremacy movement.

First, the flag; then, the guns

    Who says things can't change in politics? We just learned, again, that they can -- and fast! Ten days ago, you couldn't find a politician in the South who had anything bad to say about the Confederate battle flag. Today, they're tripping all over themselves to get rid of it.

Why The Charleston Shooter Was A Failure

    Has any murdering terrorist ever failed more dramatically than Dylann Storm Roof? Like any punk with a gun, he managed to slaughter nine blameless African-American Christians at a historic church in Charleston, South Carolina. Intending to start a race war, he succeeded only in shocking the moral conscience of the state and nation.

The Wheels Come off Jeb’s Victory Wagon

    A funny thing happened to Jeb Bush on his way to the White House.

    He was rolling assuredly toward his coronation as the next GOP presidential nominee. He was sacking up millions of dollars in campaign cash from his dynastic family’s extensive coterie of reliable corporate donors and wealthy patrons. And he was confident that he’d roll to victory next year.

Tearing Down the Confederate Flag Is Just a Start

    Suppose African-Americans marked their heritage with flags depicting Nat Turner’s rebellion of 1831, in which slaves massacred about 60 whites before the uprising was crushed? The flag wouldn’t be celebrating the murder of whites, of course, but would simply commemorate a factual milestone in black history!

Taking down the Confederate flag won't fix everything

    In the worst possible way - responding to an unspeakable act of racist barbarism - we have stumbled into one of our all-too-rare "Reconsider the Confederacy" weeks. This year's week looks as though it will lead to the relegation of the Confederate battle flag to museums and history's dung heap, where it belongs.

Reshaping the Supreme Court, our most disruptive branch of government

    When they announce that they are running for president, deliver their stump speeches, make their ads or head out on their "listening tours" trailed by caravans of reporters, we get to hear how the candidates talk to everyday Americans. But when they talk to big-dollar donors, unless someone breaks the rules, we almost never get to hear those conversations.

Prisoners of a long-lost cause

    Could this, at last, be the end of the Civil War?

    Or, as some fans of Southern heritage call it, the War Between the States?

    Or the War of Northern Aggression?
