After my hard drive crashed and lost 3 months of work, I devised a foolproof backup system to protect myself in the future

I've made a lot of mistakes since I left New York to travel around the world as Business Insider's   international correspondent.

I now back up everything to two highly reliable external hard drives and then...

Only empathy can break the cycle of violence in Israel-Palestine | Simon Baron-Cohen

I’ve spent my career studying empathy.

After a career studying autism and the nature of empathy, I see empathy as one of our most valuable natural resources. It has particular promise as an approach to conflict resolution, one that has ...
