Activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta calls out the double standard that drives our broken relationship to charities. Too many nonprofits, he says, are rewarded for how little they spend -- not for what they get done. Instead of equating frugality with morality, he asks us to start rewarding charities for their big goals and big accomplishments (even if that comes with big expenses).

Prostitutes of God

Some parents in India practice the Devadasi tradition, selling their daughters into a life of prostitution, often around the age of 10. Is it really a fault of ignorant, deluded parents of these girls? Who should be held accountable?
