Walk on by: why do we ignore bad behaviour?

It’s a familiar scenario: a packed train or bus, an unpleasant loudmouth picking on a lone passenger... and nobody does anything. What drives us to look away – and can we change?What makes a hero? According to a popular meme going around at the moment, intentions matter more than actions. “Your grandparents were called to war,” it says. “You’re being called to sit on the couch.” In a way, sitting around and doing nothing is a new type of heroism, because going out and living life as normal makes...

I’m 27 & I Was Hospitalized With Coronavirus

Millennials haven’t been too concerned about contracting coronavirus. While we aren’t all as irresponsible as the young people caught on camera during spring break in Florida (“If I get corona, I get corona”), most people’s concerns have seemed to lie with the economic fallout of the pandemic. We might not be able to pay our rent but we’re young! We’re healthy! We do Barry’s Bootcamp twice a week! Even if we do get it, we’ll be fine. After all, the early messaging was clear: the older you are, t...

It was the week before the Mike Tyson versus Evander Holyfield rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.I'd been at the first fight when Holyfield had pulled off a major upset by stopping Tyson in the eleventh round, even though beforehand there was a concern that Evander might actually die in the ring.

Ich bin Sexarbeiterin & das Coronavirus ruiniert mein Business

Um die Verbreitung des Coronavirus zu stoppen, wird in vielen Ländern die Sexarbeit extrem eingeschränkt oder sogar verboten. Erst vor kurzem ist Letzteres in Deutschland passiert.

Im Vereinigten Königreich dagegen, gibt es derzeit nur Aufforderungen von Politiker*innen, sich von jeglichem Körperkontakt zu anderen fern zu halten. Doch auch we...

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...
