    Why compassion in business makes sense
    Daily Good
    Managers often mistakenly think that putting pressure on employees will increase performance. What it does increase is stress — and research has shown that high levels of stress carry a number of costs to employers and employees alike. But there's a different way. A new field of research is suggesting that when organizations promote an ethic of compassion rather than a culture of stress, they may not only see a happier workplace but also an improved bottom line.

    How to help after Typhoon Haiyan as a volunteer or a tourist
    International Business Times
    Officials at the United Nations now estimate that Typhoon Haiyan left more than 4,400 people dead and nearly 2 million others displaced after it swept through the Philippines as one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever recorded. In the coming weeks, news out of the Philippines will likely change from officials counting the dead and medics healing the wounded, to everyday volunteers rebuilding homes, schools and churches in an attempt to replace a sense of normalcy swept away in the storm.
