A 94-Year-Old English Teacher and Her Former Students Reunite in Their Old Classroom & Debate the Merits of Bob Dylan’s Nobel Prize

In fiction the inspirational high-school English teacher is a cliché, despite (or indeed due to) the fact that so many of us have had at least one of them in real life. For generations of students who passed through San Francisco’s prestigious Lowell High School, that teacher was Flossie Lewis. Long after her retirement, she went surprisingly viral in a 2016 PBS interview clip about her thoughts on aging. It seemed she retained her power to inspire, not just for her more than seven milli...

20 Jahre später ist Vizedirektorin Gupta immer noch die wahre Königin in Plötzlich Prinzessin

The Princess Diaries (2001) Directed by Garry Marshall Shown: Anne Hathaway (as Mia Thermopolis/Princess Mia) In Plötzlich Prinzessin ist Sandra Oh nur etwas mehr als zwei Minuten lang zu sehen. Überrascht? Das liegt wahrscheinlich daran, dass sie ihren Rollentext als stellvertretende Direktorin Gupta an der Grove High School so unterhaltsam grimmig spricht, dass sie weit über den Status einer unwichtigen Nebenfigur hinausgewachsen ist. Manche Leute, die dem Filmklassiker aus dem Jahr...

Können polyamoröse Ehen halten?

Für mich war Ehe eigentlich immer gleichbedeutend mit Monogamie. Das bedeutet aber nicht, dass ich mich irgendwann bewusst für eine Ehe anstelle eines polyamorösen oder offenen Verhältnisses entschieden hatte. Mir wurde bloß mein Leben lang eingetrichtert, dass eine monogame Ehe die einzig existenzfähige Option sei. Schon eine:n Partner:in zu haben, den:die man nicht heiraten würde, wurde in meinen Kreisen immer als zutiefst beschämend angesehen. Meine Einstellung zu diesem Thema änderte sic...
