AMONG the trove of American intelligence agency documents released by Wikileaks this week is one that instructs the country’s spies on protocols to follow while travelling abroad.

Former President George W. Bush has some advice for President Donald Trump. Bush’s words of wisdom were two-fold —he wants to see Trump succeed in office and wished the new Commander-in-Chief well, the 43rd president said in an interview Sunday with TODAY. “I’d say the same advice I gave before: It’s a really hard job and I wish you all the best,” he told Sunday TODAY host Willie Geist. And aside from his general advice, Bush also suggested that Trump surroun...
I got to talking with my Uber driver, as one does, Wednesday morning, the day after an embarrassing video surfaced of Uber CEO Travis Kalanick berating an Uber driver. My conversation partner for 20 minutes had not seen the video, but he'd heard about it. A Brazilian who'd been driving for UberX for two years, he was a taxi driver before that. He drives about 10 hours a day. The money isn't great, especially after car maintenance, gas, and car washes. But he needs the work, and he's grateful for...

In a recent letter to Law Minist...

In the pursuit of clear, smooth skin, sometimes what you don’t put on your face is just as crucial as what you do. “People bring in bags and bags of products they’ve tried,” says Durham, NC-based dermatologist Brooke Jackson, MD. “But less is often more with skincare.” Slathering on every new wonder cream can irritate your face, creating a negative situation, adds Montclair, NJ dermatologist Jeanine Downie, MD.

Now, along with her Goop lifestyle label, she’s moved into marketing products for ailments that don’t even exist. For a mere $90, you can pur...

And Donald Trump's approval ratings are lower than those of any new President for whom such polling exists. What's going on? Here's a hypothesis: Ou...
