Coronavirus: Neither ‘Divinity’s Wrath’ nor ‘Nature’s Vengeance’!

Our dear friend Noshir H. Dadrawala wrote this article that was first published in the Parsi-Times. The novel coronavirus is neither ‘Divinity’s Wrath’ nor ‘Nature’s Vengeance’. From a Zoroastrian perspective, this virus is the opposite of all that is good, God-given, life-giving and health-promoting. However, there are all kinds of posts on social media about the coronavirus being ‘Divine Anger’ on mankind and COVID-19 being ‘Mother Nature’s Vengeance’ on human beings! The Zoroastrian Perspec...

Raw Selvedge Denim [April 2020]

Selvedge denim is what is considered a raw edge denim. There is a tightly woven band on both edges on the fabric. It prevents the denim from unravelling and it is a clean look. Selvedge is stiffer and more durable than mass-market denim (hence the “raw” part). Notably, there is a huge subculture of denim aficionados that only wear selvedge, as they prefer the fit, wash, and quality. What Are The Best Selvedge Jeans? Research Into Selvedge Denim Is Selvedge Denim Better? Online Conv...

Kid Craft of the Week: Pencil Catapult

While much of the world is in quarantine of some form, and often sequestered with children who are itching for something to do, we thought it would be fun to offer a weekly craft/project idea you can work on together to help while away the time. If you make the craft, we’d love to see it; share on social media with the hashtag #aomkidcraft.  Catapults have been around for a long, long time. Some records peg their first appearance to the 3rd century BC in China. Others say the Greeks were the f...

The Nature of Coronavirus versus Seasonal Flu

THE NATURE OF CORONAVIRUS VERSUS SEASONAL FLU SIMPLY EXPLAINED BY VISPI KANGA Here is a little more information on the virus that may help explain a few things that people don’t understand and feel confused as to why Coronavirus is such a bigger deal than Seasonal flu. Both are infectious respiratory illnesses. It has to do with RNA sequencing (genetics). While sequencing DNA gives a genetic profile of an organism, sequencing RNA reflects only the sequences that are actively expressed in the cel...

Ich war in der Selbst-Isolation mit einem Mann, den ich erst zwei Wochen datete

Vor ungefähr einem Monat hatte ich ein Hinge-Date. Unser erstes Treffen ging 22 Stunden. Eigentlich wollten wir uns nur auf einen Drink treffen. Aber daraus wurden schnell mehrere. Und nachdem wir die Nacht zusammen verbracht hatten, gingen wir am nächsten Tag gemeinsam Frühstücken und erkundeten dann noch die Stadt zusammen. Man könnte also sagen: Unsere Beziehung war von Anfang an recht unkonventionell. Zwei Wochen später hatte er dann so einen komischen Husten. Damals war COVID-19 abe...

What It’s Like For An ER Doc During The Coronavirus Outbreak

As the novel coronavirus continues to spread, more and more people are being directly affected by the disease. At least 412,500 people across 168 countries have contracted the virus, and roughly 18,482 have died. But the pandemic impacts more than our health. Our careers, our social lives, and the global economy have been upended since people diagnosed with the virus began falling ill in China last December. And on the front lines of it all sits healthcare professionals, like Jill Lauren, MD, a ...

Finding Comfort in Predictions

On March 11 I wrote the following notes in my personal journal: The coronavirus is currently in outbreak mode around the world. There are 125,865 known infections worldwide, with almost 81K in China. In the USA there are already 1281 infections, 7 of them in Nevada. But that’s largely due to severe under-testing.I think the USA is in for a big reckoning, especially with Donald Trump being a complete idiot in his response to this, clearly caring more about the economy and his own self-interest...

Actor Daniel Newman details horrific ER visit after checking in for suspected COVID-19

I Quit My Friend’s Wedding Party Because Of COVID-19 & Our Friendship Is Over

Being a bridesmaid in a close friend’s wedding can be an exciting (if sometimes drama-filled) rite of passage. Being a bridesmaid during the COVID-19 outbreak — not so much. Here, the awkward and kind of unbelievable story about a young woman who dropped out of her friend’s wedding because she was worried about her safety, and the friendship that won’t be repairing itself any time soon. When my friend Carrie* asked me to be her bridesmaid, I was excited. We met 10 years ago when we were still in...

Why Relational Connection Is So Important During the Coronavirus Pandemic

The novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the need for social distancing, quarantine and isolation so that vulnerable individuals are not exposed to the virus and healthcare systems are not overwhelmed. Collectively, we understand the goodness of “flattening the curve” by each of us doing our part to slow the spread of the virus. COVID-19 is not the only epidemic we are facing. Separating ourselves because of COVID-19 comes at a time when America and many other nations are in the...

Why Are People Hoarding Toilet Paper?

The answer is both curious and hilarious. I just got in from my local grocery where I noticed the toilet paper shelves were empty. Seeing a store employee, I asked him why people were buying so much. He shrugged and said he didn’t know. "Probably plenty in the warehouse." Because of my consulting business, I happened to know that there was at least one Kimberly Clarke plant in the next state over—Wisconsin. They make Scott and Cottonelle toilet paper as well as Kleenex. I’m pretty certain we don...

This Isn’t January’s Reality Anymore

The latest news in the world reminds me of this scene from Airplane 2, when a host of problems culminates in panic. Today the we have the coronavirus spreading rapidly, the stock market plummeting to the point that trading was halted, and the usual sexist egotistical lying hypocritical bigot making it all worse. These are uncertain times. It’s hard to predict what the world will be like a few months from now, but people are getting the sense that big changes have occurred and w...

What counts as coronavirus if we don’t have any tests? What counts as self-isolation if we can’t get away from our kids?

Each country reveals so much about itself by its approach to coronavirus. China pretended nothing was happening—the country with the best disinformation system applied it to the virus. South Korea figured out a way to test 400 people a day using a drive-through system—the country with the strongest video game teams applied their team gaming skills to the virus. And the US had trouble sticking to reality—the country with the most fragile sense of identity elected a President who imagined himself...

“Then it popped,” Louboutin’s Contrasting Red Sole Trademark

A week ago, over at The Fashion Law, an Independent Source for Law, Business and Culture, an enjoyable trip down memory lane was published about the history of trademark protection regarding Louboutin’s red-colored sole mark. What I hadn’t seen before now is Christian Louboutin’s quote “then it popped”: “The concept shoe, with its stacked heel and floral applique, was missing something.
