Sunday Firesides: Die Red

Emerson said that the average man is “born red, and dies gray.” By this, he meant that when a baby arrives in the world, and inhales his first lungfuls of earthly air, the child turns ruddy in hue, flushed with the vigor and vitality of new life. Thereafter, however, at least once the bloom of youth has expired, this scarlet sap slowly drains away.  Big questions — Who am I? Where am I going? What is truth? — give way to little ones: Have I paid that bill? Would I look smart in that swea...

How to Pack a Backpack for Backpacking

Next week, Kate and I will be joining a friend in Colorado for a backpacking trip. We’ve gone on a few trips in the past few years and each time we go, we figure out something new to make the next excursion more enjoyable.  One part of the backpacking pursuit that I’m constantly refining is how to pack my backpack so it feels as comfortable as possible while I’m hiking. Below I share what I’ve learned on that score, as well as other packing tips that make a backpacking trip go smoother.  ...

Why Every Man Should Have 3 Signature Dishes

I started baking bread a few years ago. The simplicity appealed to me. With just four ingredients — flour, salt, yeast, and water — I could make a hearty, delicious loaf of bread. I started, as one does with any new recipe, by hewing to the ingredients and directions as closely as possible. Over time, as I got more comfortable with it, I not only used the paper recipe less and less (it was an easy one to memorize), but started experimenting with varying amounts of the base ingredients and play...

Podcast #717: The Fraught, Relatable Relationship Between Winston Churchill and His Son

Winston Churchill once said of his only son: “I love Randolph, but I don’t like him.” It’s a sentiment many a parent with a tumultuous relationship with one of their children can relate to, and well describes both how Winston felt about Randolph, and how Randolph felt about his father. My guest today details Winston and Randolph’s incredibly close and yet terribly complex and combustible relationship in his book, Churchill & Son. His name is Josh Ireland, and we begin our discussion with how ...

Bro Basics: Lat Pulldowns

Welcome back to Bro Basics, a series which covers exercises that are popular and can be useful but are often done inadequately and solely for aesthetics, and shows the exercises’ broader function and how to perform them correctly. While we’ve previously covered two free weight exercises — the bicep curl and the tricep extension — today we tackle an exercise performed on one of the most popular machines at the gym: the lat pulldown.  While barbells are superior to machines when it comes to the f...

As Jiyo Parsi scheme delivers, community sees record births

The work from home norm during Covid-hit 2020 delivered some good news for the Parsi community which saw a record 61 births, assisted through the Centre’s Jiyo Parsi scheme aimed at arresting a decline in the community’s numbers which added up to all of 57,000 in the 2011 census. Launched in 2013-14, the scheme, supported by the minority affairs ministry, has seen an additional 22 births this year with the total number of newborns now standing at 321 as of June.

More Than a Battle

According to Christianity Today, sexual ethics among Christians are changing. “Evangelicals, especially those under 40, increasingly see cohabitation as morally acceptable. Most young evangelicals have engaged in it or expect to.” Not only that, but many younger evangelicals seem to be adopting progressive views of sexuality. Purity culture and the Billy Graham rule are out. Determining your own sexual boundaries is in. Opportunities for sexual sin are everywhere. That’s why I’m gr...

Podcast #716: How to Make Your Life More Effortless

When we’re failing to do the things that are most important in our lives, the typical diagnosis of the problem is to believe we’re simply not working hard enough, and the typical solution to the problem is to put in more effort, apply more discipline, and grind it out. My guest would say that we’re thinking about both the root and the remedy of the issue in the wrong way. His name is Greg McKeown, and he’s the author of the bestseller Essentialism, as well as his latest book, Effortless: Make...

Sunday Firesides: Despise Not the Thing That Would Save You

In the heat of the afternoon, a stag stopped at a pool in the woods to drink. Seeing his reflection in its still waters, he took a moment to survey himself from head to foot. He admiringly appraised the shape and size of his noble, wide-spreading antlers. Yet he looked with disapproval upon his legs, which to him seemed shamefully spindly and weak — an altogether unbefitting base to bear such a glorious crown.  At that very moment, the stag heard a hunter coming up behind him. He took off at...

Get Better Without Torturing Yourself: The Power of Temptation Bundling

Everyone knows how difficult it can be to achieve goals and follow through on new, positive habits. We want to exercise, but it’s so much easier to watch Netflix. We want to homecook our meals, but it’s so much more convenient to order food on DoorDash. We want to knock a bunch of errands off our to-do lists, but it’s so much more relaxing to hang around the house.
