"... 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.

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...

How to Frame the Coronavirus

At the individual level, you have many options for how to frame the coronavirus situation. You could continue to see it as some meaningless objective event, remaining detached from assigning any meaning to it. It just is. A virus is simply doing what a virus does. And people are reacting to it as people do. It has no special personal meaning for you. Or you could see it as some kind of spiritual sign with a very personal meaning for you. Or you could see it as a subjective reality event...

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...

No Joke, This Cushion Foundation Lets Me Skip All Other Base Makeup

Image Source: I've never been the type of girl who wears foundation - or very much makeup at all, TBH. I believe a beautiful complexion starts with skin care, so I've always focused my attention there. That said, I love a tinted moisturizer or lightweight formula that helps even out my skin tone. After years of struggling with products that were either too oily, too heavy, or too sheer, a friend of mine turned me on to the AmorePacific Color Control Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SP...

My Boyfriend Seems Sexually Frustrated

Me and my boyfriend have been dating for a little over 4 months. We haven’t had any sexual affairs and I like it that way since we’re minors. Getting sexual makes me uncomfortable and my boyfriend has never asked me for anything like that. It all started when I was over at his house. We were watching a movie on his bed and I fell asleep. I woke up to him fumbling. I was still half-asleep. Suddenly he took my hand and dragged it down near his dick. I can still remember the suspense- I could feel ...
