A Technology World

  By Daris Howard   I had been grading papers all day, and I was exhausted. As the work day ended and I left my office, it felt good to step out into the fresh air.

Their clothes were rough and their appearance unkempt. They looked ... Full Story

Isn't Social Security going broke one of the major concerns causing insecurity in this economy? And how again does increasing unemployment benefits ... Full Story

Slices of Life: There’s an app for that

Slices of Life: There’s an app for that

    By: Jill Pertler   I come from a generation where an application was something you filled out when you wanted a job. TV (all five channels of it) was in 2D. Phones were unitaskers and could hardly be described as smart. Times have changed. At least they are changing at my house. This week, we got our first smartphone – which, by logical inference, makes us a “smartfamily.” Or, since the phone belongs to my husband, maybe he’s the smart one. We’re not sure, because ...

Ten Years After 9/11

 Have We Become the Enemy of Freedom? By John W. Whitehead September 6, 2011 When the World Trade Center crumbled to the ground on September 11, 2001, it took with it any illusions Americans might have harbored about the nation's invincibility, leaving many feeling vulnerable, scared and angry. Yet in that moment of weakness, while most of us were still reeling from the terrorist attacks that claimed the lives of some 3,000 Americans, we managed to draw strength from and comfort each ...
