Change Your Reactions

--> When you see a fight occurring between any two people (or groups of people), it is always the case that one side believes it is right about something and that the other side is therefore wrong. It could be a disagreement over a political or territorial issue, a religious belief, or something else. Countries take sides about one issue or another and entire wars commence and continue for generations–based on one country’s belief that it is right and the other is wrong. When you pick up any n...

You Asked, We Answered: Here's How Nancy Pelosi Could Become President

Impeachment talks grew louder on Thursday night after BuzzFeed News reported that President Donald J.

Embattled By Anti-Semitism Claims, The Women’s March Forges On

The day after Donald J. Trump was inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States, Hadas Alterman found herself surrounded by nearly 60,000 people in downtown Oakland.

But the atmosphere at the Women’s March in O...

Your Ultimate Goal: How You Can Find Job Security

--> One of the worst things that can happen to people is getting fired from a job with no notice whatsoever. It can be devastating to lose your source of income unexpectedly, especially in a contracting economy. Losing a job can color our perspective on the world and our future. Going forward, we have a difficult time allowing ourselves to ever feel secure again. We believe that things can change in an instant and that we might be suddenly out of a job again. This fear of sudden job loss is some...

Marie Kondo Has A Reasonable Response To Your Reasonable Criticisms

It’s rare, even among celebrities and mega-influencers, that a person manages to carve out a niche so well-defined that their name becomes a symbol of their singular ideology. Think Gwyneth Paltrow, Sophia Amoruso, or unfortunate as it is, Donald Trump. Perhaps Marie Kondo isn’t a household name of that magnitude, but she certainly belongs on the same list. Since releasing her book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, in 2012, the Japanese org...

I Got My New Favorite Skincare Item in Japan, but It's Available on Amazon For $6

One of the many reasons I had always wanted to go to Japan was the plethora of unique products sold there that were unlike anything found in the United States. While I had heavily researched prior to shopping in Tokyo, there were more than a handful of beauty items (and foods, for that matter) I had no idea existed. Among the suitcase full of souvenirs I brought home was a fairly cheap product that I've been using each and every time I sheet mask: the Daiso Reusable Silicone Moisturizing Mask (...

Shake Things Up, Do What’s Best for You, and Be Grateful

Several years ago, in the few days before Christmas and New Year’s Eve, I went home from Los Angeles to Detroit to see my family. At the time, I was practicing law and also working as a law professor. I had brought a bunch of final exams home with me to grade and sat there grading papers and tallying up my students’ final grades for the class for a week or so. I was not having a good week. I had been working nonstop without a vacation for probably more than two years while practicing law. During...

Podcast #472: Reagan, the Man

Like FDR or JFK, Ronald Reagan has become more of a symbol for many Americans than a flesh and blood person. For some he’s the embodiment of all that’s good in America, while for others he’s the very opposite. But beyond the political divides, who was Reagan, the man? My guest today spent five years researching and writing an epic, non-partisan biography that seeks to bring the abstraction of Reagan back down to earth. His name is Bob Spitz and his biography is Reagan: An American Journey. We...

Journey to the Holy Land: Reflections on Palestine | Part 3 of 4

By Zainab Chaudry To travel to the Palestinian city of Hebron is to glimpse the grit, resilience and tenacity of the human spirit under extreme duress.  Located about twenty miles south of Jerusalem, it is the largest city in the occupied West Bank and the second largest Palestinian city after Gaza. It is home to Masjid Ibrahimi – a centuries-old mosque constructed above the tombs of four of the most beloved Prophets in Islam: Ibrahim (Abraham), Ishaq (Isaac), Yaqub (Jacob), and Yusuf...

Kentucky Legislator Proposes New Ban On Abortion As Soon As A Heartbeat Is Detected

New year, new opportunity for anti-abortion lawmakers to try to restrict a woman's right to choose. Republican state Rep. Robert Gofort just introduced a bill to ban abortions in Kentucky as soon as a fetal heartbeat is detected. This type of legislation, commonly known as a "heartbeat bill," would mean abortions could be banned as early as six weeks of gestation.

Freud versus Jung: a bitter feud over the meaning of sex

On 27 February 1907, at Berggasse 19 in Vienna, Sigmund Freud fell in love. The object of his affection was Carl Gustav Jung: 19 years younger than Freud, the young psychiatrist was already the clinical director of the prestigious Burghölzli Hospital and a professor at the University of Zurich. Jung had gained international recognition for his invention of the word-association test, and his practice was renowned for its gentle incisiveness. But when Jung read Freud's The Interpretation of Dreams...

All The Rage: Paying To Break Things When You're Stressed

There is something undeniably satisfying about witnessing a demolition — a house of cards toppling, the leveling of a fire-ravaged edifice, or even watching an action movie. It’s even better when you’re the person doing the demolishing (think: popping bubble wrap), so it was only a matter of time before someone commodified this feeling.Anger rooms, or rage rooms, are marketed as equal parts entertainment and self-care. For anywhere between $30 and $390, you can suit up in coveralls, helmets, an...

2018 Was a Banner Year for Algorithmic Prediction

Harvard’s Jill Lepore, one of the most fascinating and actually humorous historical writers, has superb explanatory insight on algorithmic prediction. That’s not a surprise. She approaches history from perspectives that have never crossed this historian’s mind--and does it with a lot of verve. She’s one of the few with a steady hand when the rest of us are lurching around with churning stomachs about artificial intelligence and moronic politicians. With two algorithmic geniuses in my own famil...
