I’m an academic & survivor. I use trigger warnings in my classes. Here’s why. ~ Erica D. Price

This is not about censorship. This is about recovering from trauma.

The Council of State gave the ruling following a request from the League of Human Rights to overturn the burkini ban in the Mediterranean town of Villeneuve-Loubet on the grounds it contravenes civil liberties.

Has the world gone completely mad? Shame on the people who promote such discrimination. The 'burkini' is about women having the freedom to be themselves on the beach!!! Glad a High Court Judge has overturned the nonsense law.

I love funny cow stories. Add yodeling to the mix and, well, you have a winner! ;)

I travel widely. Every year I spend months in many wonderful countries. So why do I hold Innsbruck, Austria, so deeply in my heart?

Every once in a while, Ireland has a summer. You'd think it would be a rather regular occurrence, but I assure you it is not.

The subject of race can be very touchy. As finance executive Mellody Hobson says, it's a "conversational third rail." But, she says, that's exactly why we need to start talking about it. In this engaging, persuasive talk, Hobson makes the case that speaking openly about race — and particularly about diversity in hiring — makes for better businesses and a better society.
