Manila: Year of the (Fire) Monkey
Fred C. Wilson III

Walking through Manila’s Chinatown during New Year’s celebrations is an experience in itself.
Greenland Whale
Greenland: A Melting Arctic Wonder
Icebergs the size of skyscrapers and a domineering ice sheet taking up more than 80% of the total landmass, every world traveler should strive to visit Greenland. But it is suffering from the terrible consequences of global warming.

Justice Scalia
The Scalia Bomb

James Campion

Once the death of ultra-conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was announced February 13, the wheels of political discourse, the fluidity of the 2016 presidential campaign, and the very core of the United States Constitution was put into play.

The Woman in the Park
Andrew Lee-Hart

She is sitting on an iron bench in the park. In the distance I can hear horses’ hooves lightly pounding and the sound of carriages trundling down the thoroughfare just behind us.
Ryan Madej

The probability is, despite a lack of foresight, I have lost my way. Not just metaphorically, mind you, but literally. I’ve always started out with bad directions
My Bad Granddad
Martin Green

It was only later that I thought of my father’s father as my Bad Granddad.  When I was a kid growing up in the Bronx all I knew is that he owned a little house in Brighton Beach and that we used to go there to escape the summer heat.  

The Repercussions of Tomas D

The Boy who changed the outcome of WW2 - Hero or traitor? - you decide.
