What... [Read More]

Andrew Boyers/Reuters Jordan Spieth won The Open Championship on Sunday thanks to avoiding a disaster on No. 13 and then surging on the final five holes to beat Matt Kuchar and claim the Claret Jug.

Spieth ultimately took an unplayable lie and dropped in the driving range. It was a move that allowed Spieth to get... [Read More]

In January, on the eve of Donald Trump's inauguration, we warned in Foreign Policy that Trump's approach to foreign policy was dangerously nearsighted and posed unacceptable risks to national security.

Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins — the crew of NASA's Apollo 11 mission... [Read More]

Americans overwhelmingly want to protect the environment, and while the political extremes can't agree on "climate change," they can still forge a path for the US to curb it. Bipartisan solutions, like carbon pricing and renewable energy, do exist. And they could become reality in the next five years. While the federal government might need to eventually enact sweeping climate-change policies, businesses and cities are already leading the way because market forces — and public opinion — support climate action. DALLAS — It was the afternoon before Earth Day in April when an imposing Republican stood up... [Read More]
