    Some brands do everything they can to avoid political controversy. Cards Against Humanity is not one of them.

    "Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction." I've always loved this quote from John F. Kennedy about drive.

    When the 2018 Major League Soccer season kicked off last month, Real Salt Lake fans didn't have to fly down to Toyota Field in Frisco, Texas, to watch the Claret and Cobalt play its Western Conference rival FC Dallas.

    Recent developments since the 2016 presidential election--most notably the discovery that Facebook had been manipulated by Russia's Internet Research Agency--has led many users to question major social media platforms.
