Bill Murray Explains How He Was Saved by John Prine

Judging by the outpouring of affection in online comment sections, Chicago folk musician John Prine (may he rest in peace) has helped a great many of his fans through tough times with his humanist, oft-humorous lyrics. Add funny man Bill Murray to the list. Taping a video in support of The Tree of Forgiveness, Prine’s first album of new material in over a decade, Murray recalled a grim period in which a deep funk robbed him of all enjoyment. Though he carefully stipulates that this “bumm...

The average person will answer, ‘Yes.’ Nearly everyone has experienced the effects of sleeping in a closed room, and, in doing so, has roused with a feeling of suffocation or dull headache. An open window in the sleeping room seems almost a necessity. –Suburban Life Magazine, 1913 When Kate was growing up and would stay over at her grandparents’ house, her nana would always insist on keeping her bedroom door open when she slept. She’d turn on the fan too, and when the...

Watch the Oscar-Winning Animated Short “Hair Love”

African-American hair has been making headlines for the last few years, usually because another black student has been deemed in violation of the dress code for sporting braids, dreads, or a natural afro. This year’s Oscar-winning animated short, "Hair Love," about an African-American dad’s attempt to stay on top of his 5-year-old daughter’s abundant locks, is the sweet alternative to these upsetting news stories. Little Zuri’s dad, Stephen, doesn’t have to battle clueless or unfair ...

Bonus Podcast: How the Stages of Grief Explain What You’re Feeling During This Pandemic

During the COVID-19 pandemic, a lot of people have been feeling out of sorts: angry, sad, frustrated, and just plain bummed out. Part of the reason for these feelings is obvious, and part has been hard to articulate and understand. That’s probably why a recent interview the Harvard Business Review did with David Kessler went viral when it named the issue point blank. Kessler said what we’re all experiencing is grief. He’s an expert on the subject who worked with Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, creator...

Sunday Firesides: Do the Right Thing, for Right Now

In times of uncertainty, when a seemingly big decision looms, we often agonize over how to move forward. We have an idea of where we want to be five, ten, twenty years down the road, and we want to make sure our choice will lead to one thing, which will lead to another, which will ultimately lead to our desired future.   Which would be fine if life were a long, straight corridor in which you could view the end from the beginning, as well as each checkpoint you’d need to hit along the way.

Coronavirus: Neither ‘Divinity’s Wrath’ nor ‘Nature’s Vengeance’!

Our dear friend Noshir H. Dadrawala wrote this article that was first published in the Parsi-Times. The novel coronavirus is neither ‘Divinity’s Wrath’ nor ‘Nature’s Vengeance’. From a Zoroastrian perspective, this virus is the opposite of all that is good, God-given, life-giving and health-promoting. However, there are all kinds of posts on social media about the coronavirus being ‘Divine Anger’ on mankind and COVID-19 being ‘Mother Nature’s Vengeance’ on human beings! The Zoroastrian Perspec...

HIV positive student nurse faces COVID-19 at work and fears at home

There are trials by fire, and then there are trials by wildfire. Nursing student Brian Thomas never imagined his on-the-job education would transform into fighting on the very front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, or that he would be forced to take extreme safety precautions each time he arrived home from his internship at a large medical institution in Baltimore. “I walk into my house and strip down to my underwear at the door,” Brian, who lives with his boyfriend and two roommates, told Queer...

Psychology of feedback: How to give or receive valuable critique

Feedback is a gift, says business psychologist Dr Melanie Katzman. Giving or receiving feedback can be a formal part of our jobs, but in Dr Katzman's assessment, we often don't go far enough with feedback. Katzman suggests creating a psychological contract with a partner who you respect and trust. In that contract, you agree to exchange extremely honest feedback by mutual consent in a safe and trusting way.In this video, she lays out the rules for such a contract and how you can embark on one.

How to Make Cheesy Bacon Rolls

While the baking of bread seems like an interesting and tasty hobby to lots of folks, they often don’t get around to dabbling in it because of constraints on their time.

FDA eases restrictions on gay blood donors amidst “urgent need”

The Food and Drug Administration, citing an “urgent need for blood,” has eased restrictions on gay men. A bit. Men who have had sex with other men within 12 months could not donate under the previous rule. Now that widow has been shortened to 3 months. Restrictions on gay blood donors were initially put in place in 1983 in response to the AIDS crisis. At that time, a lifetime ban was placed on any man who had ever had sex with another man. In 2015, the rule was replaced by the 12 moth window. ...

Improvised Ways to Close a Wound

If you cut yourself and it opens a significant wound, you need to get it closed ASAP to avoid infection and allow it to heal properly. To treat this kind of wound in ordinary times, you’d simply go to the doctor and they’d stitch you up.
