Podcast #686: The Psychology of Boredom

When we experience boredom, we tend to experience it as uncomfortable and agitating, and seek to banish it with some ready distraction. Or, we try to look at boredom sort of piously, as something we should learn to sit with, because it builds character. My guest today would argue that it’s best to see boredom more neutrally — as simply an important signal that we need to change up what we’re doing, and become more effective and engaged in the world. His name is James Danckert, and he’s a co...

Wesley Matthews’ patience pays off for Lakers

Since Wesley Matthews was benched Jan. 28, the Lakers have practiced only once. With no playing time and no practice time, how does a player like Matthews stay sharp? It was largely up to the 34-year-old, who scrimmaged with assistant coaches Miles Simon and Jon Pastorek, trading offensive and defensive possessions in one-on-one matchups on game nights when he knew he probably wouldn’t play. For Matthews, who played in 82 games as an undrafted rookie and since has really only been derailed by in...

Podcast #638: How Changing Your Breathing Can Change Your Life

When we think about improving our health, we typically think about altering our diet, trying to exercise more, and taking vitamins and supplements. But my guest today argues that none of that stuff really matters if we haven’t improved something even more foundational: our breathing. His name is James Nestor and his latest book is Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art. At the beginning of our conversation, James explains why he paid thousands of dollars to have his nose plugged up, and what h...

Lakers stunned by Damian Lillard and the Trail Blazers’ fourth-quarter rally

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — There’s a saying that time is undefeated. In the NBA bubble, Dame Time is 8-2. For days, the Lakers have said they don’t face a regular first-round matchup in these playoffs, and Game 1 showed they were right. Damian Lillard, the hot-shooting Portland star who has scored more points than anyone else this summer, fired a fourth-quarter 3-point shot a step shy of the halfcourt with just over three minutes to go — the key three of his 34 points. It lit a 11-4 final rally th...

Inventorship: “Conclusory and Self-Serving Testimony is Insufficient”

Gregory James v. J2 Cloud Services (Fed. Cir. 2020) James filed this change-of-inventorship lawsuit against the patent owner (Advanced Messaging Tech.).

11 Reasons Not to Become Famous (or “A Few Lessons Learned Since 2007”)

November of 2008. I had more hair, a flip phone, and absolutely no idea what was coming. “Let the cymbals of popularity tinkle still. Let the butterflies of fame glitter with their wings. I shall envy neither their music nor their colors.” – John AdamsLetters of John Adams: Addressed to His Wife “If I’m not famous by 30, I might as well put a bullet in my head.” That’s an actual sentence I spoke to one of my closest friends.

Podcast #570: St. Augustine’s Real-World Spirituality for Restless Hearts

Do you feel restless? Have you ever lied in bed at night looking up at the ceiling wondering “Is this all there is to life?” Or have you ever achieved a big goal in life only to feel let down? Over 1500 years ago, Catholic bishop, philosopher and theologian Augustine of Hippo had those same feelings of angst and wrote down some insights on how to deal with them and they’re just as relevant today as they were then.  My guest today has written a book about Augustine’s ancient insights on the an...

LeBron James goes head-to-head with Chicago heckler

Heckling LeBron James is pretty much a Chicago tradition at this point and sure enough, the boo birds were out for James on Tuesday night. One fan learned the hard way what happens when you verbally joust with Mr. James. James' comeback, "Your lady embarrassed to be with you," gets a particularly big reaction from the small throng of fans, with Anthony Davis even letting loose a small chuckle.

Sweet baby James is in critical need of a donor organ — while he waits, he’s showered with love

You could call this column a tale of twin babies, one healthy, the other desperately fighting for his life and in need of a liver transplant. But this story isn’t only about little James Quinn, who patiently waits for a liver while a dedicated staff at UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital nurtures him and keeps him alive. At its heart, this column is about the tens of thousands of people in this nation who will die if they don’t receive a healthy organ from a donor. That’s right, donor organs matter....

LeBron James catches Michael Jordan after a lifelong pursuit

LOS ANGELES — Click. Click. Click. In his right hand, LeBron James clicked a tape cutter while he spoke for 12 minutes after the Lakers’ 115-99 loss to the Denver Nuggets. For all of James’ tics and rituals, he rarely fidgets. “I am sorry that I am clicking this thing a lot but it’s keeping me calm,” James said. “It’s just, it’s just… you guys have no idea, man.” James was talking about Michael Jordan, the man whose shadow makes the 34-year-old star feel like a kid again. Even as James eclipsed ...

James McAvoy Described His Craziest Pubic Hair Story & It's Aaawkward

James McAvoy's currently sporting a bald head for X-Men: Dark Phoenix, but as it turns out, that's not the only body part he's shaved. On Wednesday's The Late Show, he told Stephen Colbert a story about shaving his pubes for the first time at his grandparents' house, Entertainment Weekly reports, and it is good.

How to Get a Non-Immigrant O-1 Visa for the USA

This has been the question we’ve repeatedly asked since we first moved back from the States in 2006 after living in Raleigh, North Carolina for two years. We tried one option – invest in property.

With Greater Age Comes Greater Joy

W e were made to exist within time, to age as we progress through the years allotted to us. As we age, we experience tremendous sorrows—the sorrows of weakness, weariness, reaping, mortality, and fear. But we do not experience only sorrows. We experience joys as well. Some of these extend to believer and unbeliever alike, but God reserves the choicest of his joys for those who live for his glory. (Have you read parts one and two of this series about aging?

Chelsea decide sensational swap deal is their best option [Mail]

The best solution? Chelsea have decided that their best option to deal with the situation surrounding Real Madrid’s interest in Thibaut Courtois is to agree to a swap deal involving James Rodriguez according to the Daily Mail. For some time now the Blues have fended off interest from Real Madrid for Thibaut Courtois and after the Spanish side’s latest overtures, have decided that it is futile to keep hold of a player who may decide to leave – if they can cash in and land someone they think coul...

2016 in Review: My Year in Movies and TV

At the start of 2016 I decided to make an effort to watch more movies, as I’d more or less lost the habit in recent years. The intention was to watch one movie a week; when I look at my Letterboxd diary I see that in reality I didn’t even quite manage one every fortnight — but still, that’s over twenty movies I probably wouldn’t have watched otherwise. It was worth doing, and I intend to keep up the effort in 2017.In January I started making my way through this Indiewire list of the best women...

How James Horner Convinced Antoine Fuqua to Make ‘The Magnificent Seven’ and Contributed to the Score

Before composer James Horner tragically passed away last summer, he was working on a gift for filmmaker Antoine Fuqua. Last year, Fuqua and Horner collaborated on the boxing drama, Southpaw, and the two had discussed reuniting for the upcoming remake of The Magnificent Seven. Without seeing any footage — or really discussing the potential score with Fuqua, either — Horner went ahead and starting composing music for the film, much to Fuqua’s surprise. The composer’s generosity didn’t stop there,...
