  • Citizen Active -- Quality of life, well-being research something we can feel good about

    What determines our quality of life? Our well-being? Our happiness? I had the good fortune recently to ask an expert: Dr. Alex Michalos. He has devoted years of study to these questions. And he has just produced a mammoth work, the “Encyclopedia of Quality of Life and Well-Being Research.”

  • Guess Columnist - Stand and cheer for a job well done

    MOSCOW — Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 has already shined a spotlight on the Russian public’s somewhat, um, unique views. Russian media are running with conspiracy theories: that MH17 was shot down by NATO to spark a conflict with Russia, that MH17 wasn’t full of innocent civilians but week-old corpses, or that MH17 was shot down because it was mistaken for Vladimir Putin’s personal jet (as if anti-aircraft missiles weren’t aimed with radar but with a really large pair of binoculars). The only theory missing is the right one: that Russian-backed separatists accidentally shot down the plane when they mistook it for a Ukrainian military transport.
