Spring bird watchers don't have to wait till dawn to look for feathered friends. There's one in the night sky every spring evening. It's Corvus the Crow.
As policymakers look for ways to generate revenue to fund the growing costs of the criminal justice system, an insidious practice has taken root in courtrooms across the country.
There has been an enormous amount written about how to manage virtual teams. In fact, I have previously written on it a few times myself and teach a class for managers on the topic. Today’s column, however, is a little different. Rather than discussing the management of virtual teams from the manager’s perspective, I’ll be discussing it from the remote worker’s point of view. The reason for this change in headset is, that as managers, we can better lead those working for us if we understand their needs and issues.
Rather than react, remember to use one of these simple phrases.
Recently we spent time with Francine and David Wheeler, parents of 6-year-old Ben Wheeler, one of the 20 children and six educators shot and killed at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Francine and David moved from New York City to Newtown to raise a family somewhere safe. They could never have imagined that in that quiet place on a Friday morning, just days before Christmas, gunfire would take their younger son’s life.
I recently found some lost property near my house. Being basically a decent sort, someone who might even be referred to as “good people” in certain circles, I want to help the rightful owner in its recovery.
President Barack Obama is finding out that dodging bullets is hard. It is even harder when the bullets are coming from many different directions.
The other day I was sitting around eating bonbons and watching TV like I always do in my challenging job as a stay-at-home mom, when I happened upon an interview with a real countess. I’ve always been fascinated by royalty, so I thought I’d tune in and find out what she was the countess of. Since most countesses hail from foreign lands, I naturally expected her to have a British accent or at the very least, something distinctly European sounding. But when she opened her mouth, she sounded distinctly … like a New Yawker.
Weekly financial Q-and-A, with advice on working moms and on paying for college.
I’ve always wanted to learn a second language and it seems that I now am able to teach myself two languages — French and Spanish — simply be reading the safety warnings and words of instructions that are printed on products or their packaging. Ladders practically are a course of their own.
The memorial at the Copley Square finish line reflects the best of our values. But some of the sentiments being expressed these days aren’t so noble.
Hand-held tablets are a lot like computers, in fact, they are computers.
Columnist Loretta LaRoche says aging gives us the wisdom that lets us become our most authentic selves. She says we benefit from making conscious decisions to pay less attention to our internal critics and more attention to ourselves.
Like most humans of both the small and grownup variety, my older son tends to save his more pressing philosophical, scientific and spiritual questions for the end of bedtime, after the books have been read and the teeth have been brushed and the lights have been turned out, when there's nothing left to do but think and stare at the ceiling — or, in his case, the structurally insecure-looking underside of the top bunk bed. (It's fine, it's fine, it just has a few alarming-looking cracks and some duct tape and it makes this creaking noise when you touch or make eye contact with it.)
April 18 doesn’t just jump off of your calendar like Christmas and Easter, so you can be forgiven. To a relative few of the newspaper faithful, National Newspaper Columnists Day is worth celebrating.
My brother and his wife are having their first baby this summer. My family is so excited to welcome its newest member, but there is one little problem. My sister-in-law’s baby shower is a 9 a.m. brunch halfway across the state!
