Monday's Daily Brief

Monday, April 16, 2012
Arianna Huffington: Just over two years ago, at the 25th anniversary of DotCom in Washington D.C., I was asked to predict what the game-changing inventions would be in the next 25 years of the Internet. Mine was less of a prediction than a hope -- that one day someone would create an app that would gauge the state of our mind, body, and spirit, and then offer us the exact steps we would need to take to realign all three aspects of our beings. At the time, I was just thinking out loud. But today, I'm delighted to announce that HuffPost is at work on an app we call "GPS for the Soul." I hope it will be just the beginning of our journey to reconnect with ourselves, our creativity, our intuition, and our wisdom.

Marlo Thomas: Women on the Run: The Colorful History of Women in the Boston Marathon
Don't ever tell me I'm not "allowed" to do something. You can attempt to persuade me with logic. But forbid me from doing something? That's an invitation. And that's what I'll be thinking about on April 16th, the 40th anniversary of women running in the Boston Marathon.
Mohamed A. El-Erian: What the Return of Market Volatility Tells Us
The renewed volatility in stocks last week was due to conflicting signs of additional central bank liquidity support, both in Europe and the US.
Sen. Bernie Sanders: Stop the Nuclear Industry Welfare Program
If the nuclear industry believes so fervently in its technology, then it and Wall Street investors can put their money where their mouth is. Let's let them finance it, insure it, and pay for it themselves.
Tony Blair: In Favour of Philanthropy
This is absolutely the right moment for government to do all it can to promote philanthropy; and certainly nothing to harm it.
Leo W. Gerard: Titanic Tax Shirking by Those in First Class
The 99 percent must insist Congress pass the Buffet Rule. They must render tax shirking by those in first class as unacceptable as driving with a pet dog strapped to the car roof. The survival-of-the-richest attitude is bad for the country and antithetical to democracy.
