A GLOBAL MOBILE MOTHER’S DAY

Global mobile citizens, naturally, have a different Mother’s Day experience than they would in their home country. First, it’s not celebrated on the same day. Last week was Mother’s Day in the Czech Republic. It passed with a whisper. Nothing like Mother’s Day in the United States celebrated at mythic proportions, fueled by the capitalist […]

Growth has come from minorities, particularly Hispanics, […]

BATTLE STANCE GIVES LIFT TO FRENCH, UK LEADERS

My first reaction to this headline was “such a typical male reaction to crisis – shoot it.”  You can’t argue with that fact – no matter the right or wrong of it.
