How generations compare in the use of smartphones and other technology

While younger generations are being touted as “digital natives” and have the highest percentage of smartphone use, older Americans’ smartphone use has quadrupled since 2011. Here are the percentage of U.S. adults who own the following devices: A Pew Research Center survey shows that smartphone use among seniors has nearly quadrupled in the past five years. In 2018, the AARP conducted a survey of seniors to see how they used their smartphones. Here’s what they found: Your g-g-generation Ever ...

I upgraded my standing desk after a making the switch from sitting and it was a great move

After a lifetime of sitting, I switched to a standing desk at my home office. It wasn't an expensive change. All I needed was an unused cardboard box. BUT the box eventually wore out. I thought about having a new one made from wood, but then I discovered the Stand Stand portable standing desk. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. I think I got my first desk when I was about ten. For the following 41 years, despite knowing that there was a history of writing while standing that ...

Podcast #508: Break Out of Your Cage and Stop Being a Human Zoo Animal

The human body is capable of doing a wide variety of movements, in a variety of environments. But my guest today argues that most modern people only do a few movements each day, commonly find themselves stuck in sterile surroundings, and that these confinements are sapping our physical and psychological health. His name is Erwan Le Corre and he’s the founder of the MovNat physical fitness system and the author of the book The Practice of Natural Movement: Reclaim Power, Health, and Freedom. T...

Did Ernest Hemingway copy his friend’s ideas for Cuban classics?

Some of the novelist’s best-loved work bears ‘striking resemblance’ to that of an unknown journalistOne was a Cuban newspaper reporter working to support his family andwriting fiction in his spare time. The other was one of the world’s most famous novelists on the planet, a larger-than-life Americanwho came to Havana in search of inspiration.New research shows that Enrique Serpa, a little-known Cuban author, wrote in a way that sparked the creative genius of Ernest Hemingway, who wrote some of h...

Using punctuation to pace

Ernest Hemingway is famous for his use of short sentences to build tension, as in this example from A Farewell to Arms, describing Catherine Barkley’s childbirth:She won’t die. She’s just having a bad time. The initial labor is usually protracted. She’s only having a bad time. The staccato style of the sentences builds a hold-your-breath tension. Other writers pack everything into a single breathless exhale. One of my favorite examples is from Brian Doyle’s essay “His Last Game,” writing about a...

Ernest Hemingway’s Advice on Camping Out

Editor’s note: Throughout Ernest Hemingway’s life, he maintained a love for the outdoors and for outdoor pursuits. This love was inculcated early, as his father took him into the woods as soon as he was able to walk, and taught Ernest the rudiments of hunting and fishing when the boy was only a toddler. Hemingway Sr. further instructed his son in how to build fires, make wilderness shelters, tie fishing flies, and cook wild game; he always insisted that Ernest eat whatever he killed. Hemingway...

Best of Eye Prefer Paris: Parisian of the Month: John Baxter

'Bouillon Julien' in Paris Revels in its Art Nouveau Heritage

Established in 1906 at Rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis, Bouillon Julien is a veritable Parisian gem both for its exceptional Art Nouveau interior and its famous clientele such as Ernest Hemingway, and Edith Piaf who frequently dined at ‘table n. 24’ with her lover, Marcel Cerdan, the champion boxer.

8 College Courses That Will Make You Rich

Growing up, you were probably given the idea that doing well in school can help you succeed later in life. It’s one good reason why you try really hard to learn your lessons, study for your exams, and pass your classes with flying colors. While you can get a good degree, find a well-paying job, work until you’re in your 60s, and then retire to enjoy the life you’ve deferred for 40+ years, you may still end up feeling unsatisfied. It’s still not the successful, secure, and financially sound life ...

Ernest Hemingway museum in Cuba

US-Cuba relations might not be particularly warm these days, but Cuba is nonetheless opening a new conservation center in honor of one of America’s greatest authors: Ernest Hemingway. Ernest Hemingway moved to his Cuban villa Finca Vigía in 1939 and lived there for over two decades during which he wrote much of A Moveable Feast, Islands in the Stream, and The Old Man and the Sea. When Hemingway urgently and reluctantly departed Cuba in 1960, he left many of his belongings behind. After his su...

Steven Pinker’s 13 Rules for Good Writing

Photo by Rose Lincoln, via Wikimedia Commons What is good writing? The question requires context. Each type of writing has its norms. Some guidelines apply across disciplines—consult your Strunk and White or any of the hundreds of handbooks recommending strong verbs and minimal use of passive voice. Still, you wouldn’t necessarily put the question to an experimental poet if your concern is informative writing (though maybe you should). Maybe better to ask a scholar who writes clear prose.

William Faulkner’s Review of Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea (1952)

Images via Wikimedia Commons In the mid-20th century, the two big dogs in the American literary scene were William Faulkner and Ernest Hemingway. Both were internationally revered, both were masters of the novel and the short story, and both won Nobel Prizes. Born in Mississippi, Faulkner wrote allegorical histories of the South in a style that is both elliptical and challenging. His works were marked by uses of stream-of-consciousness and shifting points of view. He also favored titanically lo...

A Room of One’s Own: Why We Need Space and Quiet

Virginia Woolf believed that if a woman was to write fiction that she must have money and a room of her own. I would say the same for a mental health blogger or anyone in a creative field. Money can be hard to come by. But a creative soul should at least have a fort or office somewhere in her home or in the neighboring vicinity that is hers alone, where she can hang up a “Do Not Disturb” sign. A space to spread out notes and books and journals for days or months on end until the project is fini...

‘Triple Frontier’ Review: A Great Cast Scowls and Shoots Their Way Through This Junk Food Action Flick

Triple Frontier had a long, strange journey to the big (and in most cases, small) screen. Back in 2011, Kathryn Bigelow was set to direct, with Tom Hanks starring. By 2015, Bigelow was out, and J.C. Chandor was in. Chandor would spend the next several years with the project, with one big name after another being floated for potential cast members: Johnny Depp, Tom Hardy, Channing Tatum. At one point, the Affleck brothers – Ben and Casey – were being courted to star. But the Afflecks eventually ...

The Elaborate Pictogram Ernest Hemingway Received in the Hospital During WWI: Can You Decode Its Meaning?

Everyone who knows the work of Ernest Hemingway knows A Farewell to Arms, and everyone who knows A Farewell to Arms knows that Hemingway drew on his experience as a Red Cross ambulance driver in Italy during World War I. Just a few months after shipping out, the eighteen-year-old writer-to-be — filled, he later said, with "a great illusion of immortality" — got caught by mortar fire while taking chocolate and cigarettes from the canteen to the front line. Recovering from his wounds in a Milanes...

Paul Crenshaw's 'This One Will Hurt You' Will, Indeed

There's a precarious balancing act many personal essayists undertake when shaping their work. Some of the finished products are so finely tuned and crafted that the personal connection is lost. These essays are the literary equivalent of artisan coffee or beer. The ingredients are all included, distilled through proper machines. They are rich and expensive and they leave the customer feeling full, but not fully satisfied. Indeed, the smooth edges and shiny surfaces of many personal essays under ...

The Iraq Stock Exchange (ISX), as measured by the Rabee Securities RSISUSD Index, started the year not with a bang but with a whimper, as befits the ending of the Chinese year of the Dog, by going mostly sideways on a continuation of the low turnover of the last few months.

How the Bonkers ‘Serenity’ Borrows From Film Noir Classics

By this point audiences have been scratching their heads and questioning their film choices with the release of Steven Knight’s Serenity . It’s a movie that is as compellingly bonkers as it is exceedingly dumb. It’s a fun bad movie that you’ll enjoy if you’re into that kind of thing.
