image for Stacey Abrams helped register 800,000 voters and flipped Georgia for Biden. Here's what anyone can learn from her ability to inspire and influence others.

Abrams bounced back from her 2018 loss in the bid for Georgia governor to launch three nonprofit initiatives and register 800,000 voters in the 2020 presidential election.

Obama frequently had to strike deals with Republican senators to appoint GOP judges, in order to prevent those senators from blocking Obama’s other nominees. »

The wolf’s effective hunt of large prey and striking, soulful appearance have attracted both haters and lovers of this wild predator.

Much like their human counterparts, ravens and wolves have formed a mutually beneficial relationship in which they seem to both respect and engage each other in playful activities.

Although many animals benefit from a wolf pack’s kill of an elk or deer, the ravens are first on the scene. »
