How to Treat an Impalement Wound

Editor’s Note: This is a guest article by Marine Corps veteran and paramedic Charles Patterson. Author’s Note: Given the nature of impalements and the number of variables that cannot be accounted for in one article, many of the treatment options will require a caveat of “depending on (x) or (y).” In every situation, common sense must be applied with extreme prejudice towards seeking help from medical professionals rather than attempting to correct or treat an impalement on your own. However,...

Podcast #656: The Hidden Pleasures of Learning for Its Own Sake

When we typically think about learning, we tend to think about being in a structured school, and doing it for some reason — to get a grade, to get a degree, to get a certain job. But my guest today says that if we want to live a truly flourishing life, we ought to make time for study and thought long after we leave formal education behind, and embrace learning as something wonderfully useless.  Her name is Zena Hitz and she’s the author of Lost in Thought: The Hidden Pleasures of an Intellect...

Make Workmen Safety a Choice with the Best Maritime Injury Tips

It is nothing new for a maritime worker to get injured while working on a ship. Yes, it is a daunting task if one embarks upon the journey of finding a seafarer who hasn’t been involved in an accident or hasn’t hurt himself. Research suggests that around 1,163 people get killed in marine accidents, and a whopping amount of $197 million gets into insurance losses. These personal injuries are a result of sheer negligence and a failure to adhere to safety procedures. The repercussions of maritime a...

The Biggest Key to Organizing Your Garage

Garages can be unruly places. If you’re like me, you kinda treat it like the junk drawer of your entire house. Stuff slowly makes its way there, and then stays there. To get to something you want, you have to claw your way through a pile of other stuff.  I had made an effort at organizing my garage five years ago , which had certainly helped tame the chaos. But over time, things started to devolve. Not only were my general household tools and things getting harder to find and access, but th...

Surviving as Pastors

When pundits talk about what it will take to lead the post-COVID church, I usually hear about ministry tweaks we’ll need to make. As much as I appreciate these tweaks, I believe we need to go deeper. We’ll need pastors who have learned to maintain healthy souls in the middle of the chaos in the post-COVID church. At the beginning of this crisis, Andy Couch and others predicted that “we are most likely facing a blizzard today, a winter for the next few months, and a little ice age for years … ...

The Japanese Traditions of Sashiko & Boro: The Centuries-Old Craft That Mends Clothes in a Sustainable, Artistic Way

Paving the way for young Zoroastrian women | Faith Matters

As perhaps the oldest, though smallest, monotheistic world religion, Zoroastrianism’s patriarchy also influenced Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Women were second-class citizens and frozen out of leadership roles. But even in Zoroastrianism, some women are claiming their rights to become priests today. Article By Rev. Alexander Santora/For the Jersey Journal “Some rules are man-made, and men keep them,” said Khorshed Mehta, 73, a retired vice president of Chase Bank. “Men and women ar...

This is not the end. Apocalyptic comfort from ancient Iran

At its height, around 620 CE, the Sasanian empire ruled over a territory stretching from Jerusalem in the west to Samarkand in the east. The royal court at the ancient city of Ctesiphon, near present-day Baghdad, was the political heart of this vast realm, and its official religion was the ancient Iranian faith, Zoroastrianism. In royal iconography, the king of the Sasanians was likened to Ohrmazd, the good creator God: just as Ohrmazd vanquishes the evil spirit Ahriman, so, too, does the king ...

The House Hunt Decision

This is that time of the year. NO! Not that time when there is this festive cheer in the air and everyone is happy and smiling and cheerful and in the celebration frame of mind. But the time when I go through the annual ritual of looking for a house that's good enough in my opinion and affordable enough in my pocket's opinion and unobtrusive in my friends' opinion and accessible enough in Mumbai traffic's opinion. You would've guessed that the combination is as rare a find as life's purposes are...

Sunday Firesides: Blessed Are the Restless

When a young C.S. Lewis would gaze out the windows of his nursery, the landscape of green hills in the distance would fill him with pangs of yearning.  Nature would continue to stir these inconsolable longings throughout his life , as would encounters with literature, music, art, and friendship. In these “Tantalizing glimpses, premises never quite fulfilled,” he heard the echoes of a yet-to-be-realized Paradise.  “We do not want merely to see beauty,” he wrote of the ache these hints insp...
