Cuba's Culture of Violence: A Dangerous Spiral

Poster for the sixth anniversary of the magazine Coexistence

A woman hits a child, who appears to be her son, on one corner. The passersby who see it don’t get involved. A hundred yards further on, two men get in a fight because one stepped on the other’s shoe. I arrive home thinking about this aggressiveness, just under the skin, that I feel in the street. To relax my tension I read the latest issue of the magazine Coexistence, which just celebrated six years since its founding. I find in its pages an article by <a class="colorbox" href="http://translatingcuba.com/category/authors/miriam-celaya/" …read more

Expensive Del Taco Bill Surprises California Customers

SANTA PAULA, Calif. (AP) — What was supposed to be a cheap bite at Del Taco turned out to be small fortune for some Southern California customers.

About 150 people who ordered this week at the Mexican-style fast food chain in Santa Paula, 65 miles northwest of Los Angeles, were mistakenly charged thousands of dollars for burritos, tacos and soft drinks. Customer Michael Cole said he was surprised when he was charged $4,050 for one CrunchTada Pizza and two beef tacos. He discovered the error Friday when he tried to withdraw $20 from an ATM and was denied.

Sunderland Deals A Major Blow To Chelsea's Title Hopes, Snaps Jose Mourinho's Streak (VIDEO)

By Goal.com

Sunderland dealt a blow to Chelsea’s Premier League title hopes as a late Fabio Borini penalty secured an unlikely 2-1 win for the Black Cats at Stamford Bridge.

Borini, who was once on the books at Stamford Bridge, converted an 82nd-minute penalty after Cesar Azpilicueta had fouled substitute Jozy Altidore. The loss ended Jose Mourinho’s 77-match unbeaten run in home league encounters as Chelsea boss.

It is the second time this week that Sunderland has bolstered Liverpool’s cause following a 2-2 midweek draw with third-placed Manchester City.

The Gate: Newseum exhibit captures year in photos

By Roger Catlin

The otherworldly sight of African migrants, lit only by the moon and the light of their cellphones, held aloft, trying to grab signals from nearby Somalia to call their relatives. The terror of a mall turned battleground after a brazen attack in Kenya. A severely malnourished child crying out from her mother’s burqa at an Afghan hospital. The best photojournalists have a way of capturing a whole of a complex story in a single frame and, with their artistry, make it live in our memory long after news has marched on. News pictures too good to forget from last year …read more

Ukraine Unrest: U.S. Military Exercises In Eastern Europe Considered

WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States is considering deploying about 150 soldiers for military exercises to begin in Poland and Estonia in the next few weeks, a Western official said Saturday. The exercises would follow Russia’s buildup of forces near its border with Ukraine and its annexation last month of Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said earlier this week that the U.S. is looking for ways to reassure its NATO allies of its strong commitment to collective defense. The Pentagon’s press secretary, Rear Adm. John Kirby, said in a statement Friday that American officials are considering a …read more

Change Management: 4 Factors that Distinguish Successes from Failures

2013-05-15-CIBookCover.jpeg

By Judith E. Glaser

Many MANAGEMENT GURUS, ACADEMICS, and CEOs are writing on change, yet there is a difference between theory and actual change. If you are entrusted to make change happen, run a division, have a strategic HR role, or are in the C-suite, think about what it takes to facilitate change. When successful change occurs, employees feel like authors not objects of change. They feel fully invested, accountable and energetic about the future, regardless of challenges.
