For more than 30 years, I've contemplated some of the teachings of the Nobel Peace Prize winner, the Dalai Lama. His statement on the purpose of life originally stunned me. I was listening to a cassette recording (that really dates me) of him speaking to about 400 psychologists and psychiatrists about the similarities and differences between Buddhism and Western psychology. I was so transfixed that even though I'd arrived home, I stayed in my car and continued to listen. By TC North

Real estate: Arrested development
Now that the recession has come to a close, you’d think developers would have reawakened to for-sale condos, but that’s not the case. Coming out of the economic slowdown, for-sale attached housing construction has trailed other housing segments, dropping from a high of 30 percent of total construction in 2006 to a low of 11 percent in 2012. Most of the for-sale attached projects are townhomes rather than condos. Over the same period, the portion of for-sale attached housing – condos – dropped from 50 percent in 2006 to 16 percent in 2012. By Margaret Jackson

Rather, my goal is to show how the coming digital age will permeate even century old industries like fortune cookies (no it won’t) (yes it will). By Tom Frey
