‘The Other Bennet Sister’ review: An alternate path for bookish Mary

Literary classics, books like Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice,” are woven into our collective lexicon. British author Janice Hadlow capitalizes on this awareness with her latest novel “The Other Bennet Sister.” Beginning with Austen’s familiar story, Hadlow gives us a book that is satisfyingly evocative of the earlier novel and yet strikingly contemporary. Hadlow focuses on Mary, the awkward middle sister from the Austen novel, the one whom most everyone overlooks. Her book is not a sequel nor is it really an interpretation. Rather, Hadlow retells the story from the vantage point of a figure given short shrift in the ... Read more

If You’re Burning Out, Carve a New Path

Executive Summary As leaders looks for new ways to improve workplace well-being, a relatively new concept has emerged: job crafting, a strategy that gives employees the chance to design their roles for a more meaningful experience of work.

Self-isolation and a zero non-essential workforce is not sustainable. Donald Trump and Andrew Cuomo understand this and are looking for solutions.

Putin clears path to two more terms as Russia’s president. Why?

As a huge package of amendments that will completely overhaul Russia’s constitution worked its way through parliament this week, authorities unveiled a last-minute change that would allow Vladimir Putin to run again for president after what was meant to be his final term in that role. But Russian experts say that the sudden change in plan may not have been a power grab, but rather Russian elites’ desire for a steady hand in increasingly uncertain times.

Joe Biden takes Michigan as path to 2020 nomination widens

Washington Joe Biden decisively won Michigan’s Democratic presidential primary, seizing a key battleground state that helped propel Bernie Sanders’ insurgent candidacy four years ago. The former vice president’s victory there, as well as in Missouri, Mississippi, and Idaho, dealt a serious blow to Sanders and substantially widened Mr. Biden’s path to the nomination. Mr. Biden again showed strength Tuesday with working-class voters and African Americans, who are vital to winning the Democratic nomination. Mr. Sanders’ narrow hopes for good news rested on North Dakota and Washington state. Washington’s primary was too early to call, and because all votes there are ... Read more

Pressure ramped up on him to concede and Biden carefully began to turn his remarks to the general election after extending his delegate lead in “Super Tuesday 2,” with wins in Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri and Idaho. Biden, speaking in Philadelphia, made a measured pivot, saying he takes “nothing for granted” but that “this campaign is taking off” — and that he will speak ... Read more
