By Nadia Kounang, CNN
(CNN)So, it turns out your mother was right again: The less sleep you get, the more likely you are to catch a cold. A new study published in this week's journal SLEEP, finds that people who sleep less than six hours are more likely to catch a cold. Researchers tracked 164 healthy men and women for a week at a time, monitoring how much they slept and exposing them to the rhinovirus, also known as, the common cold.

The Core Value of Stewardship
By Patrick Layhee
As business professionals we bring our talents to the marketplace every working day. We exercise influence, get things done, and move our enterprises forward. Our professional tool kits are full of the latest and greatest in new ideas and strategies—we are leaders, managers, and individual producers.

The products and services we deliver will change from time to time, but our core values remain the same.
Workplace Faith in Action
By Gary L. Selman
Although our country was founded on Christian principles, many Christians have been convinced by government, special interest groups, lawyers and corporate America that prayer, reading the Bible and applying their faith in the workplace is grossly misplaced and that it should come no closer to their office than the parking garage. So what is a Christian who trusts in God supposed to do when faced with daily workplace challenges, tests, and trials? Who should they turn to for wisdom and insight on recruiting, hiring, training and retaining key employees and leaders? How can they empower their workforce to higher levels of productivity and quality? How can they lead like Jesus, with love and compassion in a worldly environment geared toward power, selfishness, and greed?
CRITICAL CONFLUENCES: Planned Parenthood, a Spanish town, and a deadly schizophrenia
By Wallace Henley
Recent headlines reveal the deadly schizophrenia torturing the soul of the West. Schizophrenia is typified by many as causing a split personality, though this is not technically the case. Nevertheless, it remains a euphemism for the mental dysfunction. Planned Parenthood’s rapacious profiteering off the body parts of infant human beings, exposed by undercover videos, is the topic of one set of headlines. Just as we are digesting this horror comes this one: “Spanish town grants human rights to cats and dogs.” The leaders of Trigueros del Valle outlawed “the mutilation or death of a non-human resident” (animals having been declared “residents” in the declaration of the town’s council).

How the Same-Sex Marriage Case Might Affect the Texas Abortion Law
By Kyle Bryant
By now it is not news: on June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that all states must license same-sex marriages. Many people heralded this decision as an historic win for equality and freedom. While that claim may have philosophical merit, the decision is a radical departure from the Supreme Court’s usual legal analysis. And the underlying reasoning may affect much more than marriage. This ruling may guide the Court to strike down Texas’s new abortion restrictions, effectively keeping open dozens of abortion clinics that would have otherwise shut down.
International Trade and America’s First Freedom
By Sam Webb
Religious liberty is “the condition in which individuals or groups are permitted without restraint to assent to and, within limits, to express and act upon religious convictions and identity free of coercive interference or penalty imposed by outsiders, including the state.” The 800th anniversary of Magna Carta was June 15, 2015, and Magna Carta set forth, for the first time in Western law, the revolutionary idea that all people are subject to the rule of law. Magna Carta propounded 63 distinct liberties, first of which was the freedom of the English Church: “In the first place we grant to God and confirm by this our present charter for ourselves and our heirs in perpetuity that the English Church is to be free and to have all its rights fully and its liberties entirely.”
