We're One Step Closer To Uncovering Secrets Of Ancient 'Centaur' Comets

Comets are a frequent and gorgeous occurrence in outer space, and a study recently outlined plans for how scientists could watch them be created in real-time. As it's been proven time and time again, the mysteries of space are continually fascinating. Planets in our Solar System have many stories to tell, faraway galaxies hold countless other secrets, and there's a constant drive in the science community to uncover as many of these as possible. Thanks to constantly advancing technology, each...

Ten Coaching Questions on the Path From Languishing to Flourishing

Languishing. Thanks to Adam Grant’s May 2020 article in the New York Times, we now have a word to describe this malaise many of us are experiencing: “Languishing is a sense of stagnation and emptiness. It feels as if you’re muddling through your days, looking at your life through a foggy windshield. And it might be the dominant emotion of 2021.” The opposite of languishing is flourishing. Martin Seligman, a founding father of the School of Positive Psychology, writes in his book that five fact...

Congress likely won't take action on the growing threats to election integrity, leaving election workers vulnerable to criminal prosecution and results open to partisan tampering

A sign reads "Voting Rights Are Sacred" near a rally in front of the Supreme Court in Washington, Wednesday, June 9, 2021, to support the Senate's upcoming election bill Andrew Harnik/AP Congress likely won't weigh in on the growing threat of election subversion in the states. States are passing laws criminalizing and politicizing the election and vote-counting process. Experts suggest standardizing vote-counting procedures and reforming the Electoral Count Act.

How a real-life killing led to the writing of the novel ‘At the Edge of the Haight’

One night about a decade ago, Katherine Seligman and her husband were driving through Golden Gate Park and a man appeared in front of the car, saying he needed help and that someone was trying to kill him. “We stopped and called the cops,” the San Francisco-based author recalls during a recent phone call. “When they came, they shined a light into the distance and you could see that the kid was lying on the ground and he was dying – in fact, did die.” That frightening event, and the understanding...

This Week In Trailers: Voyagers, Sophie Jones, For Heaven’s Sake, Shiva Baby

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week, we take true crime a little less seriously, remember what it was like to be 16, wait longingly for our lover, get force-fed more dy...

‘Shiva Baby’ Review: A Filmmaking Debut That is Lox, Stock and Barrel [TIFF 2020]

Emma Seligman’s Shiva Baby is a caustic comedy about attending a traditional post-burial brunch, taking the tropes of Jewish family life in directions that feel much like a beautifully realized horror film as well as an eloquent and often hilarious look at a hapless millennial navigating parental and cultural expectation. We meet Danielle (Rachel Sennott) in flagrante delicto, grinding noisily against the curly haired Max (Danny Deferrari). As she leaves to attend “a brunch”, her sugar ...

Katharina Volckmer: 'Germans say they've dealt with their past. But I don’t think you can'

The Appointment’s darkly funny untangling of national and sexual identity has not been published in the author’s home country – yet. But she wants to break the awkward silence over German historyThe subtitle of Katharina Volckmer’s debut novel is revealed only on the title page: “The Appointment (Or, The Story of a Cock)”. In the US edition, it’s a “Jewish Cock”. Volckmer has said the subheading was kept off the cover “as a surprise” – making it the first of many unsteadying gear shifts in a mon...

University of California must stop all use of SAT and ACT in admissions, judge orders

By Michael Burke, EdSource University of California must suspend all use of SAT and ACT scores in admissions, a judge ruled, siding with attorneys representing students with disabilities who argued those students have not been able to access the tests during the coronavirus pandemic. The ruling affects six of UC’s nine undergraduate campuses that have gone test-optional, giving students the choice of whether to submit their test scores when they apply. “There’s never been such a thing as a level...

Amazon tells staff hand-washing time won’t be held against them

By Josh Eidelson, Bloomberg Amazon.com told employees at a New York warehouse, where workers have sued and gone on strike over safety concerns, that they won’t be punished for insufficient productivity or extra time washing their hands. In a message Amazon sent recently to employees and posted in bathrooms at the Staten Island facility, the e-commerce giant said workers wouldn’t be disciplined for falling short of quotas based on how many tasks they complete each hour. Time spent on safety measu...

How Thinking About the Future Makes Life More Meaningful

Mindfulness is all the rage these days, and for good reason. Focusing on the moment can improve our well-being, foster compassion, and help our relationships. What about going beyond the present moment? Yes, thinking about the future can trigger anxiety—but a growing body of research suggests that it can also make our lives more meaningful. Humans aren’t alone in having some ability to consider the future, a process that scientists call “prospection.” After all, your dog gets excited when they ...

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...

The 3 Psychological Pillars of Personal Development Systems

I have spent a decade studying personal development systems in conjunction with psychological paradigms for mind management. Some approaches I looked into were weird and mystical, like the Silva Method, Lazaris, Abraham Hicks and A Course in Miracles , others were more socially acceptable like Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Hypnotherapy, while some were widely applied in clinical settings like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Eye Movement, Desensitization and...

Four Beliefs That Are Keeping You Immobilized in Your Career and Life

--> If you were suddenly told you were a professional boxer and were expected to get into a ring and fight night after night, you would probably get quite discouraged. At some point, you would probably stop fighting altogether. You would get into the ring and allow yourself to be knocked out, knowing that no matter how hard (and much) you fought you would likely lose. Rather than even fight, you would simply give up. Many people are in a situation in their own lives where they have given up. Aft...

This is the list of books I read in December 2018. Human Evolution: Our Brains and Behavior by Robin Dunbar. Dunbar is an evolutionary psychologist and anthropologist. He is also famous for Dunbar’s number, which indicates that the social cost of relationships limits humans to a number close to 150 on average, even though some can manage up to 22...

You Are the Protagonist

“Julian Rotter, a social psychologist, developed the concept of “locus of control,” with some people being ‘externals,’ believing that the environment or other people shape their lives, and others being ‘internals,’ believing that they themselves shape their own lives.” “Stanford Professor Albert Bandura, today the most-cited living psychologist, touted the concept of ‘self-efficacy.’ An ‘efficacy expectation’ is the belief that you, yourself, can bring about the outcomes you desire, whereas as ...

Route 66 in Arizona: Detours, Kitsch and Natural Wonders

This is the leg of Route 66 that everyone dreams about. It’s perhaps the most iconic stretch of the Mother Road and the one most popular with day-trippers from either Las Vegas or California. In fact, there’s so much to say about Route 66 in Arizona that I’m not quite sure where to start. The result will be a post that may seem a little rambling and out of order, but believe me, it’s the one post in my Route 66 series you don’t want to skip.

Wheels on the Rim: Savoring Sedona, Grand Canyon, & Seligman, AZ

“Why did I never do this before?” This, or something close to it, is probably a thought most of us have experienced at some point, after being captivated by a joyful activity that we realize we could have experienced far sooner. Twenty-six years after moving to Vegas, that question beat through my head as I bicycled, literally whooping loudly and repeatedly, along Hermit’s Rest Road on the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park (GCNP). I’d wondered the same thing a couple of days earlier about ...

There are many reasons why The Mother Road calls out to millions of people around the world.

But an important aspect for many is the kitschy Americana found along the way in decades old roadside attractions and quirky stops that have been dr...

Credibility Not Required or Desired: 'Cop-Out' and 'The High Commissioner'

Ah, the High Sixties, pinnacle of a certain strain of sleek, glamorous, sophisticated thriller spawned by a stylish brew of influences: James Bond, Alfred Hitchcock, the heist caper, and a European New Wave sensibility. Credibility wasn't required, or even desired. Some of us eat these things up, which is why we'll appreciate new Blu-rays of Pierre Rouve's Cop-Out (1967) and Ralph Thomas's The High Commissioner ( Nobody Runs Forever ) (1968). Besides falli...
