    In many situations we see our decisions as an ‘either/or’ dilemma.

These apparently opposing conflict practices need not be mutually exclusive—in fact, each is necessary to the other. Bernie Mayer is a Professor of Dispute Resolution, at The Werner Institute, Creighton University. For over thirty years he has been a leader in the conflict resolution field.

    President Obama is slated to present the new regulations set forth by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) for the ever-popular and often predatory payday loan industry. The speech, to be given today in Birmingham, Alabama, in addition to presenting the regulations will also tout the young agency that put them together.

Their mission is to “make markets for consumer financial products and services work for Americans—whether they are applying for a mortgage, choosing among credit cards, or using any number of other…

    Popular culture is political. And as I have suggested many times before, politics is professional wrestling and professional wrestling is politics.Roland Barthes insightfully described why the devotees of professional wrestling find it so compelling:The virtue of all-in wrestling is that it is the spectacle of excess. Here we find a grandiloquence which must have been that of ancient theaters. And in fact wrestling is an open-air spectacle, for what makes the circus or the arena what they are is not the sky (a romantic value suited rather to fashionable occasions), it is the drenching and…

    By Keith Coffman DENVER, March 31 (Reuters) - Police arrested a 51-year-old driver for the Uber car service on Wednesday who is accused of trying to burglarize a Denver woman's home after he dropped her off at the city's airport, authorities said. Gerald Montgomery was taken into custody in the suburb of Golden after a warrant was issued for him on suspicion of attempted burglary, Denver police spokeswoman Christine Downs said. Police say he drove the woman to Denver International Airport last week, but then allegedly returned to the home in the south of the city where he had picked her up…

    WASHINGTON, March 31 (Reuters) - A House of Representatives committee subpoenaed two U.S. Secret Service agents on Tuesday after an incident this month when agents allegedly drove a car past White House barricades after drinking at a party. Republican Jason Chaffetz, head of the House Oversight Committee, said the Department of Homeland Security had declined to cooperate. "We therefore must take the regrettable step of compelling the agents for interviews before the Committee," he said in a statement.

    By Daniel Wallis DENVER, March 31 (Reuters) - A teenage Colorado girl whose remains were found dumped in a suitcase in a remote park area last month died from a drug overdose, the local coroner's office said on Tuesday. Kelly Mae Myers, 18, was reported missing in the mountain town of Grand Junction in December by relatives who said she may have tried to hitchhike to visit friends in Salt Lake City. Police believe Myers died at a hotel in West Valley City, Utah, and that her body was then taken to the Cactus Creek area of Colorado. They have named two people of interest in her death. "The…

By comparison, the prosecution presented 92 witnesses in the trial of Tsarnaev, 21, who is accused in the April 15, 2013, attack that killed three people and injured 264 people near the finish line of the famed race. Court will reconvene on Monday, with lawyers for each side making their closing statements before the jury begins deliberations. If Tsarnaev…

    {purchase this artwork on custom clothing}As I rode with my husband to the store on Saturday, December 10th, I found myself tearing up upon hearing the news of Richard Pryor’s death. Perhaps "death" isn't the right word to use. Because anyone you can think of and instantly smile about is surely alive.As bizarre as it may sound, Richard Pryor was a symbol of my childhood. He was connected to my earliest memories--an absentee godparent, of sorts. Unlike my peers who were sneaking to listen to his albums, I was always allowed to listen and I often lost track of time staring at the different…
  • An End to Suffering / Pankaj Mishra in Kathmandu, Nepal

    Though a bulk of his work consists of down-to-earth socio-political reportage from countries spanning the globe, Pankaj Mishra is what a modern-day philosopher would look like -- except he wouldn't call himself that. Instead, the Indian journalist and author deems his perspectives on the Buddha today, modernity as religion, the politics of introspection and the seductive thrust of history as neither ideological or intellectual, but rather an extension of basic "mindfulness" -- being cognizant of your own emotions and ideas at every moment, and acknowledging their relative insignificance in…
  • Cuba, 2015

    20 Mar 2015 | 11:54 am
    Editorial Note: Fidel Castro invoked a seductive binary as an aesthetic approach to reading the world when speaking about the Battle of Cuito Cuanavale in 1987 and 1988 during the Angolan liberation movement; the world would know itself in terms of before and after it. Toussaint L’Overture says “Let them tremble when they reach our coast ...” Fidel says “You will never have Cuba”. The nuances of concession, negotiation, and intermingling often get lost in headstrong revolutionary-period narratives. The before-befores and after-afters are important. Sex, Lies, and Tourism, for…

It could easily be called the "neo-slavery trade" only not based on the prison industrial complex (as Kanye West and others before him have said), rather what might be called the social services industrial complex. Others have even referred to a non-profit industrial complex. If a key part of the struggle is determining how…

  • My Lenten Journey 2015: The Week of Holiness

    30 Mar 2015 | 8:20 pm
    In my efforts to chase my dreams, holy week can easily slip by me. Racing from pillar to post leaves little time to sit and discern the fullness of holy week. I had delusions of constant praying and loads of time for mediation and contemplation. I had thought once this holy season was upon me that I would just settle in naturally and be at home with God.Well, none of this is remotely true. As a matter of fact, I am not feeling holy in the way that I was hoping to feel holy. And truth be told, my prayer life sucks at the moment. I find myself rushing through my prayers... the very time I love.

He lived knowing that shit could end any moment.People's fear, greed, ignorance and power hunger got the better of them.I've seen this kind of heightened desperation in my own life. I've had the experience of people wanting me to suffer more... Pay more. This has been my experience in failed love affairs, failed employment opportunities, failed friendships.

But then again, that's just an excuse. Perhaps I am too focused on trying to Do Lent, rather than experience Lent.I can feel myself getting worked up about missing out on Lent, when really all that is needed is quiet time...deliberate quiet and stillness. I can't seem to give myself that time of quiet. What is the truth here? What am I trying to escape from now?Lent is the time to look at the messy parts of your life, the parts…

Over the seasons it has been the arts and creativity and personal development and spiritual growth and maturity. This season it's about meditation and the absorption of words in place of wine. I am giving up wine. I am giving up wine and replacing wine with words. Spiritual, sacred, illuminating, thoughtful, uplifting words.These next 40 days will be filled with letter writing, and written contemplation of where I am…
