Dolce Gabbana Fruit Collection: Colourful Tailoring Made for the Fruit-Averse

The Dolce Gabbana Fruit Collection is hard to get hold of (available, on the whole, in their clothes stores but not elsewhere). So, I forgot about it. When I did finally try them, I was surprised at how their cartoonish, candied aesthetic mismatched with the subtle, brush-worked compositions inside the bottles. If you’ve always wanted to wear a fruity fragrance but dislike the fruit cocktail fo... Read full article: Dolce Gabbana Fruit Collection: Colourful Tailoring Made for the Fruit-Avers...

Ahura Mazda and Angra Mainyu In Zoroastrianism’s Creation Mythology

Ahura Mazda and Angra Mainyu are the two main deities in the dualistic doctrine of Zoroastrianism. The former is the supreme deity of this religion, whereas the latter is the evil, destructive spirit. Angra Mainyu or Ahriman is the name of Zoroastrianism’s underlying reality or substance of the “destructive/evil spirit” and the main adversary in Zoroastrianism either of the Spenta Mainyu, the “holy/creative spirits/mentality,” or directly of Ahura Mazda, the highest deity of Zoroastrianism.

Podcast #687: How to Get a Handle on the Voice in Your Head

We all talk to ourselves all the time. This kind of inner dialogue can be a good thing, helping us focus and work through problems, but it can also go off the rails, turning into worry and negative rumination. My guest today calls this negative self-talk “chatter,” and in a book of the same name he outlines how to get a handle on it. His name is Ethan Kross, he’s a psychologist and the director of the Emotion & Self Control Lab, and we begin our conversation with the way introspection can be ...

Beziehungspause ohne Drama: So geht’s

Viele von uns haben sich irgendwann bestimmt schon einmal den Kopf über die Bedeutung einer „Beziehungspause“ zerbrochen. Womit genau geht denn eigentlich dieses Wort einher? Ist dieser Begriff nur ein einfühlsameres Wort für eine – wenn auch möglicherweise vorübergehende – Trennung? Oder handelt es sich dabei um eine Zeitspanne, während der man sich nicht sieht, aber auch nicht mit anderen Leuten schläft? Eines steht fest: Wenn man nicht eindeutig definiert, womit eine Beziehungspause ver...

Maybe it doesn’t matter how many seamers/spinners England picked

It’s always exciting to try and guess what day one talking points will be. When India picked three spinners and England picked one, it seemed like maybe that would be a thing. But you don’t always get to a point where the composition and quality of your bowling attack will have any real impact on the outcome of the game. Sometimes in a modern free-roaming videogame, you can venture into an area where you get minced. “What’s over here?” you wonder. “What’s in this room/cave/dungeon?” ...

Was der „Tod“ der Skinny Jeans für mich als dicke Frau bedeutet

2021 war bisher voller Überraschungen. Ich hätte vorher zum Beispiel nie erwartet, dass Europa über ein Jahr nach seinem ersten Coronafall immer noch weitestgehend im Lockdown steckt oder Donald Trump tatsächlich mal von Twitter verbannt werden würde. Noch schockierender fand ich aber die News, dass Generation Z nicht bloß Seitenscheitel und den Freudentränen-Emoji gecancelt hat, sondern jetzt auch die Skinny Jeans. Yep – TikTok-Teens haben soeben das Ende einer modischen Ära verkündet, die mich...

Reminder to Be Physically Healthy

Maybe it’s because the weather where I live is in the mid-20s this morning, when I looked. Maybe it’s because the Texans experienced devastating lows last week. Maybe it’s because I’m longing for warmer weather where people are out and about. This morning I woke up with physical health on my mind. In 2006, during my horribly failed job search, I literally would roll out of my bed, walk a few steps to a recliner, and sit there until dinner time. I’d go to the bathroom, and maybe the fridge, but m...

Popular all over the world, stew is always a comfort, whether it comes as a Lancashire hotpot, French daube or a summery mix of courgette, mint and butter beansStew doesn’t have a poor reputation so much as bad branding. The name itself has an aura of disappointment about it, especially the way my children repeated it back to me, after they asked what we were having and I told them. “Stew!” they would say, with heavy emphasis on the “Ew!” It probably doesn’t help that “stew” shares an etymologic...
