So what you're saying is, if you treat employees well, they work better? Hmm.
Excessive demands are leading to burnout everywhere.

Imagine starting an article with "What is Russia?"
Some essential background on the country, its fight against Boko Haram, the larger forces shaping the conflict (oil is a big one), and the history behind it all.

too cute
Whether they are delighted or disgusted, kids have a way of making the cutest faces to express how they feel. That's especially true in "Pucker," a video from photographers David Wile and April Maciborka that shows how much babies like —

"our attitude towards the poor is so often condescending and paternalistic." An enlightening interview with NYU economist Bill Easterly on the link between poverty, faith, autocratic governments, and NGOs.

Enlightening piece about what this now-size 6 woman misses about her 300-pound self.
I used to weigh more than 300 pounds. I smoked like a house on fire, I drank like a blues guitarist, I ate whatever I wanted whenever I wanted, and I never, ever exercised.

"If I hadn't been told I was garbage, I wouldn't have learned how to show people I'm talented. And if everyone had always laughed at my jokes, I wouldn't have figured out how to be so funny. If they hadn't told me I was ugly, I never would have searched for my beauty. And if they hadn't tried to break me down, I wouldn't know that I'm unbreakable."
I always wonder if that's the first thing they ask Rihanna when they meet her. 'RiRi! How are you so confident?'

Tandas, or susus as they are more commonly known in African countries, are how African immigrant women afford those big purchases, like down payments on a car or vacations.
Participants in these social networks pool their money to give each other informal, no-interest loans. They're called cundinas or tandas, and politicians are taking notice.
