If Obamacare dies, a Facebook post could cause you to lose your health insurance

It’s a scary thing, to hear something that’s been lurking over you for decades get a name. My therapist used words like “depression” and “anxiety.” Maybe some people take comfort in it. I didn’t. I met those labels face-to-face, for the first time, and no weight lifted from my shoulders. But it was a start.[…]

Your name could shape your face, new study suggests

Long before anyone knows what we’ll really look like, we’re given the label we will probably carry for the rest of our lives — our name. But what if your appearance, particularly your face, somehow reflected the name you were given at birth? A new study suggests that each person’s face, insanely enough, could actually[…]

Could the JWT CEO Scandal Become a Watershed Moment for Change?

Unlike 4A's conferences in recent memory, soul-searching was the underlying theme in Miami this year—mostly the result of the fallout from the case against former J. Walter Thompson CEO Gustavo Martinez over alleged sexism and racism. Panel sessions and keynotes hit on the lack of diversity (and, to a lesser degree, transparency) in the ad[…]
