The Photos That Ended Child Labor in the US: See the “Social Photography” of Lewis Hine (1911)

The average person believes implicitly that the photograph cannot falsify. Of course, you and I know that this unbounded faith in the integrity of the photograph is often rudely shaken, for, while photographs may not lie, liars may photograph.  —Lewis Wickes Hine, “Social Photography: How the Camera May Help in the Social Uplift” (1909) Long before Brandon Stanton’s wildly popular Humans of New York project tapped into the public’s capacity for compassion by combining photos of his subje...

The South Carolina Debate Was A Hot Mess — Here’s What Happened

Conservatives are gunning for gay Trumpster Richard Grenell. Cue the eye rolls.

Just days after the appointment of openly-gay former ambassador Richard Grenell to the role of acting head of national intelligence, conservative critics have gone on the attack. Though openly gay, Grenell has a long history of defending Trump and conversion therapy proponent Mike Pence. That record had done little to assuage far-right homophobes who see Grenell as a “gay activist.” Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council, a group which once said Washington was under the control of ga...

Naturally conservatives are furious at gay people for Utah decriminalizing polygamy

Via Flickr The state Senate of Utah voted this week to reclassify polygamy from a felony to a misdemeanor crime. In an oh-so-predictable twist, conservatives have already blamed marriage equality. To be clear: polygamy is not legal in Utah, even under the new statute. That hasn’t stopped conservative publication The Federalist from a hyperbolic attack on LGBTQ rights, in essence blaming legalization of polygamy which hasn’t even happened on queer visibility and marriage equality. Author David...

Social media makes breakups worse, study says

According to a 2017 study, 71% of people reported feeling better (rediscovery of self and positive emotions) about 11 weeks after a breakup. But social media complicates this healing process.Even if you "unfriend", block, or unfollow, social media algorithms can create upsetting encounters with your ex-partner or reminders of the relationship that once was.Researchers at University of Colorado Boulder suggest that a "human-centered approach" to creating algorithms can help the system better unde...

Use the “Eisenhower Matrix” to Manage Your Time & Increase Your Productivity: The System Designed by the 34th President of the United States

"What is important is seldom urgent," said Dwight D. Eisenhower, "and what is urgent is seldom important." Or a t least many believe Eisenhower said that, even if he might have been quoting someone else. Whether or not the 34th President of the United States of America ever spoke those exact words, he must have had a highly effective method of dealing with life's tasks. During Eisenhower's two terms in office, writes Atomic Habits author James Clear, "he launched programs that directly ...

‘And Then We Danced’ Director Levan Akin on when a movie gets you death threats

Director Levan Akin on set with Levan Gelbakhiani “Can we sit outside? I need to smoke.” Levan Akin makes the request when we greet him outside a bookstore in Park City, Utah. The two of us find a cafe table nearby overlooking the street, where we watch a light powdering of snow begin to fall as the mid-week lull of the Sundance Film Festival begins. Normally we might object to Akin smoking, but in his case, it somehow makes sense. His Sundance entry, And Then We Danced, has incited protests ...

Some Thoughts on Coronaviruses and Seatbelts

Hope is not a strategy. — James Cameron A prescient article titled “Body Count” by Epsilon Theory/Ben Hunt (@epsilontheory) was recently sent to me by one of my smartest and most connected friends.  It paints a spooky picture of the Chinese reports of what has been informally referred to as “Wuhan coronavirus.” Per the WHO this week, the official virus name is SARS-CoV-2, and the disease it causes is COVID-19, much like HIV causes AIDS. Here is one portion from this essay (edited for leng...

Let’s talk sex: The science of your brain on dirty talk

One in five people in a new study admit that they have stopped sex cold because of the dirty talk.90% of the participants felt aroused by the right erotic talk with their partner.Dirty talk activates the erogenous zones of the brain: the hypothalamus and amygdala.

CNN anchor rips into homophobe on live TV

CNN host Jim Sciutto was not having any of conservative pundit Ben Ferguson’s homophobic nonsense when he appeared on his show this week. While talking about Rush Limbaugh’s recent remarks on Pete Buttigieg’s sexual orientation, Ferguson defended the right-wing radio host by implying Buttigieg’s “masculinity” was inferior to Donald Trump’s. “I don’t think it matters that he’s gay,” said Ferguson. “I think that the thing that you are talking about here is two different issues. One, is anyone goi...

Why Exposing Kids to Nature is so Important

We live in such different times; further away from our inclinations towards the natural world and all the health, wellness and environmental benefits that a close connection with nature can provide. Sadly, this opposition to a stronger relationship with Mother Nature doesn’t just affect us adults but our children and future generations. We are still learning about how being more immersed in nature can benefit our health and the evidence is overwhelmingly positive. With the increase of tech...

GOP politician insists Constitution says it’s OK to murder socialists, ignores calls to resign

An antigay lawmaker from Montana is refusing calls from his own party to resign after he falsely claimed the U.S. Constitution demands that socialists be murdered in cold blood. Rep. Rodney Garcia made the inflammatory remarks at a Republican party organizing meeting last Friday. The 66-year-old warned his fellow GOPers that socialists were “everywhere,” calling them “enemies of the free state” and saying the founding fathers wanted them all killed. “So actually in the Constitution of the Unite...

Crazed pastor says coronavirus is God’s revenge for gays

Screenshot And today in nutbag news… Pastor Rick Wiles, a noted far-right broadcaster and conspiracy theorist, has announced his latest crackpot hypothesis: that the deadly coronavirus, which has already killed more than 300 people, is God’s plan to cleanse the world of queers.

Vispi Speaks: How Much Water Do You Really Need To Drink

Hydration is important, especially in hotter regions where people lose more water from sweating and exhalation. There are plenty of clear associations between hydration and metabolism, skin health, and general fitness.  But too much of anything isn’t good. Even water. So, how much is the right amount of water you should drink? A couple of human studies have suggested that individuals who drink very, very small amounts of fluid, significantly less than 800-900 mL/day, may be at higher risk for ...

Your Body Matters as it is: Self Care and the Christian’s Body

Touch has become a theme with polar extremes: inappropriate or abusive touch on one end of the spectrum and complete avoidance of touch on the other. Yet, over and over again in the life of Jesus, we find Him ministering through touch. The blind see, the sick are healed, and the lame walk. Lore Ferguson Wilbert believes there’s power in touch and God has called us to minister to others in the way Jesus did: through touch.
