Sunday Roundup | Arianna Huffington — This week demonstrated the power of shared experiences and having some collective fun -- i.e., virality. It began with social media all atwitter over Patricia Arquette's Oscar speech -- and backstage comments. Next up, the Internet was riveted by The Great Llama Chase -- as the camelids, part of a therapy visit (Emotional Support Llamas?), made a break for it during a bathroom break.

My Q and A With Firas Kittaneh, Who Has Glimpsed the Future of Sleep — Firas Kittaneh wants to disrupt the mattress industry. And the success of his online mattress company Amerisleep is about more than people's increased willingness to buy a mattress online without every trying it out in a showroom. It's about something much bigger: our changing attitude toward sleep.

My Q and A With W. Chris Winter, Sleep Whisperer to Some of the World's Top Athletes — Perhaps more than any other group, athletes have fully embraced sleep as a performance enhancement tool. Top athletes are, of course, all about results. So there's no better place than the world of sports to see the tangible effects of sleep (including pre-game naps) on performance.

Sunday Roundup | Arianna Huffington — Tonight, after an interminable build-up, we finally find out who will take home an Oscar -- and who will be forced to smile gamely when someone else's name is called. My can't-miss prediction: there will be at least two Fifty Shades of Grey jokes.

Ep. 13 Arianna Huffington: The New Way To Thrive — This week, Arianna Huffington, president, and Editor in Chief of the Huffington Post Media Group, joins The James Altucher Show to talk about her new book, Thrive . Are you stressed over work, relationships, or your environment? Is stress causing you to miss out on certain activities or events?

Sunday Roundup | Arianna Huffington — This week, Jon Stewart announced his retirement from The Daily Show. He'll be missed -- not just because he was funny, but because he told the truth in an era when much of the media wouldn't. Later that same night, 60 Minutes correspondent Bob Simon ...

My Q and A With Jonah Berger, Author of — Contagious: Why Things Catch On established Jonah Berger as a thought leader on a subject with big implications for the future of media: why we share. As The Huffington Post launches What's Working, an editorial initiative to double down on our coverage of positive news and solutions, I asked Jonah, a Wharton Business School professor, for his insights.

Lo que funciona: todas las noticias (que merece la pena publicar) — Publicado: En inglés existe un viejo dicho dentro del mundo editorial según el cual "if it bleeds, it leads", algo así como si sangra, manda. Es decir, las historias de violencia, tragedias, irregularidades y corrupción reciben la máxima cobertura -en la mejor hora, en la parte superior de la pantalla del ordenador o de la página de periódico-, ya que se asume que estas historias son hacia las que el público se siente más atraído.

Sunday Roundup | Arianna Huffington — This week began with " The Horrible Call" finally deflating "Deflategate" in a thrilling Super Bowl that ended up being the most-watched program in U.S. television history. Though Patriots rookie Malcolm Butler stole the main event, the halftime show's breakout star was Left Shark, Katy Perry's more-funny-than-fearsome, freelancing dancer.

What's Working: All the News — There's an old saying in the news business, one that's guided editorial thinking for decades: "If it bleeds, it leads." That is, stories of violence, tragedy, dysfunction and corruption get top billing -- at the top of the hour, at the top of the computer or phone screen or above the newspaper fold -- driven by the assumption that these are the stories the public will be most drawn to watch or read.
