Forscher*innen untersuchen: Kann Botox gegen Depressionen helfen?

Wenn ich das Wort “Botox“ höre, kann mein Gehirn nicht umhin, an Jennifer Coolidge in A Cinderella Story zu denken, die sagt: „Es ist das Botox! Ich kann erst in anderthalb Stunden Gefühle zeigen“. Doch wie es scheint, sorgt Botox nicht nur dafür, dass du mit deinem Gesicht keine Emotionen mehr ausdrücken kannst. Das Nervengift könnte auch einen Einfluss auf deine Gefühlswelt haben – zumindest sollen das Untersuchungen jetzt herausgefunden haben. In einer Studie, die in der Zeitschrift Sci...

Emails my mom sent from her NYC co-op

I stopped talking with my mom a few years ago. She might not have noticed at first. My brothers have all cut her off at times as well. But my mom is pragmatic. She knows she and my dad were terrible parents. She apologizes and by all accounts, she is a much more enjoyable person to be around when she is not raising kids. In January I decided I’m too old to not talk to my mom. I am 52. She had me when she was 21. I decided to trust that she always means well when she talks to me. I know she tr...

"The conventional wisdom is that a woman could never ascend to the leadership of North Korea... [a] toxic mix of Confucianism and totalitarianism indentures women to their husbands, to their in-laws, and..."

"... ultimately, to a male-dominated regime.... Since 1948, North Korea has been ruled by three men—the founder, his son, and his grandson—but, nevertheless, it is now conceivable that the fourth man will be a woman. That is because, with reports that Kim Jong Un is in failing health, the most obvious successor is his thirtysomething sister, Kim Yo Jong.... Last week, CNN reported that he was in 'grave danger,' after having undergone surgery (an assertion echoed by a report from a Japanese magaz...

I was calm until I read about colleges staying closed until September 2022

Each night before I go to sleep, I lay in bed torturing myself with the day’s news. I know we are not supposed to do that, but there are very few vices I can fully engage in when we have five people living in a 1000-square-foot apartment. Screen-time news right before bed is one of few vices that takes very little space and does not involve the bathroom. Wait. You’re wondering about the five people, right? I didn’t know our apartment is actually approved for only two people. I found it out wh...

Scientists discover animal that doesn't need oxygen to live

The animal is a tiny parasite called Henneguya salminicola.The parasite infects salmon and lives within the fish muscle, though scientists aren't quite sure how it breaks down nutrients for survival.The findings are published in the journal PNAS.

Antigay lawmaker who ripped Hunter Biden for substance abuse… once got a DUI

The Benefits of Failure

--> Several years ago I was working with a distinguished law firm partner who had been given a few months to find a new job by his existing firm. The partner had not looked for a job in probably twenty-five-plus years and I think his confidence was  shaken by losing his job. The attorney was quite marketable and was used to earning close to a $1 million a year, and I knew that he would not have a very difficult time getting another job. I met with him on several occasions and gave him a list of ...
