Active play is key in improving your young athlete's performance

Netflix's 'House of Cards' paints a bleak political realm — but in part, a realistic one, political

WASHINGTON — Television’s Rep. Francis Underwood’s season one introduction to “House of Cards” explains his view of America’s capital city: “Give and take.

Good news: Your husband can't make you happy

I remember the day I got married as one of the happiest days of my life. I knew it was probably the only time we would get to be with family and friends from both sides of our family at once. Everyone was dressed in their best attire, I was having my best hair and makeup day ever, and to top it all off there was cake. A happy day, indeed.
