Lucy and Hen Staveley-Brown, both 53, met at school in 1979 at a time when same-sex relationships were considered taboo. Years later they reunited and now live together in DevonLucy Campbell was 11 years old when her parents sent her to an independent Catholic school near their home in North Devon.

My Inherent Racial Prejudices

An illuminating study of the acting of Rege Jean Page On two occasions recently, I’ve written glowing accounts of the mixed-race actor, Rege Jean Page. I concluded one post, “The best business course I’ve ever had (March 9, 2021),” by noting that direct change in human behavior is best facilitated by subversive activities. I provided a description of RJP as a superb example of subversive behavior in the role of Bridgerton’s Duke of Hastings. By subversive activity I refer to behavior which under...

Bravo Bridgerton and Rege Jean Page

I have been an unabashed, naive lover of romantic comedy for years. Still, I was surprised by how much I learned from numerous interviews of the male lead of the Bridgerton romantic comedy, Rege Jean Page. He has a lot to say about culture, literature, drama, movies—and Bridgerton. So much that I decided a blog was in order. But an analysis, not a review. With the added interview input from Rege, a new video paradigm is both confirmed and enhanced. So, here goes. First, let’s dispose of the noti...

Adults changing careers should follow advice for students applying to college 

The number of high school seniors applying to MIT this year is 60% above last year. That means there are 12,000 more applicants. Harvard’s applications are up 30%. Duke is up 20%. Most Ivy League schools are up 20% at least. What does this mean? First, it means that your chances of getting into MIT are so close to 0% that you probably need a degree from MIT to figure out the number. Second, it means that the main thing holding kids back from reaching for the stars has been the reality of thei...

While it’s certainly become easier to find high-quality pet foods made with limited fillers and nutritious ingredients, this does not mean that your dog won’t develop an allergy or intolerance to some of these ingredients.  Firstly, it’s important to differentiate food allergies and food intolerances in dogs....

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are already worth at least $30 million — and none of that money belongs to the crown

Chris Jackson - WPA Pool/Getty Images Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepped back from royal duties at the beginning of the year. The decision made it so they no longer receive money from the crown through the "sovereign grant" and are both eligible to earn a professional income. Now, they're positioned to build a billion-dollar brand. They've settled in Los Angeles and just founded their own production company and signed a multiyear deal with Netflix. Even without those developments, the...

Staying Home: Episode 5 by The Pioneer Woman

There’s a new episode of “Staying Home” on today (Saturday morning!) It’s the fifth kid-shot episode, and three of my kids (plus my nephew) are behind the cameras!   When I say “cameras” I mean “iPhones!” It’s amazing what they can do these days.   I remember getting a Kodak Disk camera when I was in sixth or seventh grade, so I still have an old fashioned perspective on photography. Raise your hand if you had one!   Paige and Alex usually alternate filming with the main camera, which is the ...

How Parsis shaped India’s taste for soft drinks

A bottle of Pallonji’s raspberry soda comes with this helpful disclaimer: “Contains no fruit.” Electric red in colour, and syrupy sweet to the taste, the raspberry soda is a beloved cultural icon of India’s fast-disappearing Parsi community – as well as the endangered Irani cafes in the western city of Mumbai. Article by Dinyar Patel | BBC It is pure, fizzy nostalgia. But peer more closely into one of Pallonji’s ancient glass bottles and you can discern a story of much greater significance: ho...

Mangola, a slurpy, happy feeling that wasn’t cool enough for Frooti & Pepsi generation

Homegrown Parsi company Duke and Sons gave Mumbai its first mango-based drink, but couldn’t survive in the post-liberalisation heat. Indians love their mangoes. From week-long culinary festivals to memorable family traditions, the king of fruit has remained an integral part of the smells and tastes of many Indian lives. This is why it isn’t surprising that the novel idea to turn the fruit into something one can drink was met with significant joy and market success in the 1950s Mumbai (then Bo...

It’s time to ditch the American obsession with meritocracy

Americans have an unwavering belief in economic mobility. Most people in the U.S. think they can work hard to get ahead, even though economic mobility is . Americans underestimate the importance of luck and believe that people who are ahead got there from hard work and intelligence. Even something like a good photo is statistically just luck based on how many photos we take. But when we get a good photo we feel skilled. Economists have found that the bigger a gap there is between rich and po...
