Rob Tornoe: Bordering on cruelty
Throughout the political world, there is growing outrage over the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance immigration policy on the Mexican border, which has led to the forced separation of families and the detainment of thousands of minors in facilities throughout the South. The Associated Press described kids in one facility in South Texas waiting “in a series of cages” under overhead lighting that “stays on around the clock.”
 
 
Christine M. Flowers: Sessions’ asylum decision hurts women most in need
I have seen a woman beaten, and I did nothing to stop it. It is hard, as a teenager, to know your power and to find your voice. Instead of confronting the violence, I hid behind a locked door.

Yet, global productivity levels have been stagnant since the economic crisis of 2008. The global total factor productivity (TFP), which measures the efficiency with which inputs such as labour and capital are
 
 
Gracie Bonds Staples: Are suicides really preventable?
Suicide is now the 10th leading cause of death in this country, and yet we still talk about it in whispers — if we talk about it at all. Time, though, has a way of demanding us to say something, do something. That time came in quick heartbreaking succession when fashion designer Kate Spade and author/chef Anthony Bourdain had both died from apparent suicide, and well, we had a reference point.
