Chicago has a few fake outs in our lurching from summer to autumn where dips in temps climb back up into balmy sunny weeks.

The Best Backpack

From grade school through law school, I used a backpack to carry my books and notes. Post college, I mainly use a backpack for day hikes and traveling. Over the course of these three decades of backpack-carrying, I’ve tried a lot of different packs, and yet until recently, hadn’t found one I really loved for all-around, all-purpose use. For a lot of that time, I used a GoRuck GR1 as my go-to backpack. And while I still love that pack for rucking (I’m going on 10+ years with mine, and it’...

“Controversial terms, from ‘abortion’ to ‘Zionism,’ tend to shut down dialog because they mean different things to different people.” The AllSides Red Blue Dictionary defines these hot-button terms across the political spectrum: “Until we fully understand what a term means to someone else, we don't know the issue and can't effectively communicate.” * I’m enjoying (and learning from) the short essays Susan Orlean publishes on Medium, especially her stories about  the writing craft.

How Silence Can Work in Your Favor

Silence works exceptionally well in many interpersonal situations. That’s especially true, for example, in a problem solving or conflict-oriented situation. In such contexts, strategic silence is often one of your best approaches to resolution. It’s an interpersonal behavior used when talk is expected. Someone has a pressing reason to talk, but does not talk and does not explain their silence. So, when a person violates expectations by silence, the other’s attention is riveted on the silence. It...

High Conflict in the Canadian Church

Conflict is good. Actually, the right kind of conflict is good. As Amanda Ripley writes in her new book High Conflict, healthy conflict “can be serious and intense but leads somewhere useful.” It “does not collapse into dehumanization.” High conflict, though, is bad. It “becomes self-perpetuating and all-consuming, in which almost everyone ends up worse off.” It’s “typically an us-versus-them conflict.” Ripley’s book tells stories of high conflict: a town council in California, a gang memb...

Lightning may have provided a key mineral for early life on Earth

A chance discovery in suburban Illinois may change how we understand the dawn of life. Among other things, life needs water-soluble phosphorus, which was hard to come by 3.5 billion years back. This finding may imply that life has more opportunities to begin on other worlds than previously supposed. Even the youngest child often wonders where they came from. For many scientists, a group of people known for retaining their childlike wonder, the question naturally evolves to asking how life its...
