On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Lost in 'the cloud'

I hear a lot lately about "the cloud," a cyberspace phenomenon in the realm of computers and smartphones. It is not physical, takes up no space and is not really anywhere but is everywhere. Apparently it is possible to park in the cloud an infinite amount of electronic information, which can be retrieved at will.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Grandpa's advice isn't the best for unmotivated teen

Q: Our 17-year-old daughter is bright but puts very little effort into her schoolwork. For example, she currently has very low grades in several classes simply because of not turning in assignments. Her only after-school activity is hanging out with her friends, so the problem, in our estimation, is simply one of setting priorities. We think she needs a job and have made getting one a condition of having access to a car (one of ours) other than to drive to work and back. We have also told her that to have broad driving privileges, she must get her grades ...

Kathy Bradley: Stop, nest and listen

Within the arms of the tree lost to the hurricane, I found a nest. Deep and empty like a soup bowl slurped clean, it was cradled between two branches. In wind strong enough to topple the tree, it had somehow remained whole.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: There is only one

Reportedly, when Scotland's famous novelist and poet Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) was on his death bed, he said to his son-in-law, "Bring me the book." Looking at the more than 20,000 volumes in Scott's library, the younger man asked, "What book?" Sir Walter replied, "Need you ask? There is but one book, the Bible."

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: 1960s shift blurred boundary between adults and children

In the 1960s, as part of an overall, culture-wide paradigm shift, a sea-change took place concerning our collective understandings concerning the rearing of children. The two fundamental questions in that regard are and have always been: 1) What is the nature of a child? 2) What constitute parent responsibilities toward a child? In the 1950s and before, those questions were answered in one way; since the 1960s, they have been answered in quite another.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Savor the season

During each new season, there are a few dishes I greatly anticipate cooking: Spring beckons salads and grilled vegetables, summer calls for hamburgers, and nothing comforts the soul in winter like warm soups and casseroles. Fall, though - fall might just be the season to beat. With the exception of the holidays, I don't think I look forward to eating more any time of the year.

Kathy Bradley: The best we can

The water is hot. It is rushing through the faucet, collecting in the sink. Bubbles that smell of green things, living things, rise like yeast. I hold my hands under the water for a moment, watch my knuckles turn red. It is dark outside the kitchen window, but inside, inside my house, it is light, miraculously light.
