    The Western Front dominates our memories of the First World War. Yet a million and half men died in northeast Italy in a war that need never have happened, when Italy declared war on the Habsburg Empire in May 1915. Led by General Luigi Cadorna, the most ruthless of all the Great War commanders, waves of Italian conscripts were sent charging up the limestone hills north of Trieste to be massacred by troops fighting to save their homelands.

    Embrace your flaws and weaknesses-and transform them into the building blocks of greatness! We expect our heroes to be perfect, despite overwhelming evidence they never are. The ancient Greeks had no such expectations. It wouldn't be Greek mythology if the heroes weren't deeply flawed. And get this-there was no cure! Only if the hero recognized his weakness would the story end well.

    As conventionally defined, "balance" doesn't matter. Passion does. Learn how to find it-and start living it!CEOs and Nobel laureates don't have "balance". The Dalai Lama doesn't. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mother Teresa didn't. Enduringly successful people, many living lives that are gifts to the world, don't raise balance as a major issue. Not because they've handled it masterfully - but ecause they're busy doing what matters to them.

    Charles Fletcher Lummis began his spectacular career in 1884 by walking from Ohio to start a new job at the three-year old Los Angeles Times. By the time of his death in 1928, the 3,500 mile "tramp across the continent" was just a footnote in his astonishingly varied career: crusading journalist, author of nearly two dozen books, editor of the influential political and literary magazine Out West, Los Angeles city librarian, preserver of Spanish missions, and Indian rights gadfly.

Marva Collins doesn't advise parents, kids, and teachers to wait for self-confidence, or to believe success is an entitlement. Self-esteem is overrated: it's about effort.

    In 2015, The Washington Post launched an unprecedented effort to account for every fatal shooting by an officer of the law. Their study has motivated the FBI to action, and changed the way we think of those who serve and protect. After a police officer shot and killed a black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, the media began to pay greater attention to deadly interactions between black men and the law.
