Barry Bahrami went from incredulous to angry last month when California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a batch of firearms control laws known collectively as Gunmageddon.

The shitstorm is only going to get worse, so to prevent […]
Last October, after an intense, bizarre and exhausting day covering the election, I came home and told my husband Peter I needed to regroup. I was suffocating from superficiality. I needed to reset my heart, reconnect with him, and do something together as a couple to the benefit of other people. So we booked a five-day trip. Our destination: Cotonou, Benin in West Africa, to visit Mercy Ships. Mercy Ships is a surgical hospital ship whose mission is to bring health and healing to the forgotten poor. We’ve been involved with the group for several years. For this visit, we […]

These days, especially at tech companies, youre as likely to find a dog in the office as you are a pot plant or watercooler. For startups particularly, allowing dogs is an easy, cheap way of attracting and […]
I’ll be honest and say that most of the time I think tests like this are prettyfull of crap. How can what I see in a picture say anything about my personality other than that statement makes me sound cynical and highly suspicious? But I took the time (research for the job, of course) to look at these pictures from Psychobook a recently-released coffee table book filled with psychological games, tests, and questionnaires and it was kind of spot-on. So now it’s your turn to prove themwrong. Look at each of the images and then scroll down to find out […]
