Stop treating prescription meds and illegal drugs differently

The line between illegal drugs and prescription medication is largely arbitrary and unhelpful. Marianne Ayala/Insider When Sha'Carri Richardson was banned from the Olympics for marijuana use, people were rightly furious. But we must realize that the use of all drugs, not just marijuana, must be destigmatized. The line between drugs and medications is so blurry that it is no longer helpful. P.E. Moskowitz is an author, runs Mental Hellth, a newsletter about capitalism and psychology, an...

Is Remote Work a Thing Now?

My son recently announced that the small law firm website design company he works for will be giving up their trendy office space in Vancouver’s Gas Town and permanently moving to a remote work environment. He was ecstatic, as he LOVES working from home. But my husband (a school teacher near retirement) insists that most workers prefer the sociability of a traditional face-to-face workplace and that despite expert predictions, remote work won’t be a serious thing after the pandemic. It made me w...

LAFC trades Mark-Anthony Kaye to Colorado

When Ecuadorian midfielder Jose Cifuentes joined the Los Angeles Football Club prior to the 2020 season, one of the first people to make him feel welcome was Mark-Anthony Kaye. Two years into his experience in Los Angeles, Kaye, a Canadian international who moved from the United Soccer League to Major League Soccer ahead of LAFC’s inaugural season in 2018, had matured into a leading voice on and off the field for the Black & Gold. “In training, he’d try to communicate with me and take me under h...

family and friends reunion road trip: day two: everett, washington to talent, oregon

I am happy to report that today was far less eventful. The most important thing was to get on the road early. We know from past experience (our first trip to Vancouver and Oregon in 2016... where the idea to move west was born!) that there are two major traffic areas on this stretch of 5 South -- Sea-Tac and Portland. The plan was to get up very early, start driving immediately, and be past Sea-Tac before the major morning rush.This is not an issue for me, as I am normally up at 5:00 a.m. S...

Galaxy welcomes Rayan Raveloson as a scoring threat

Rayan Raveloson has made a big impression on his new team in a short matter of time. Raveloson, who was signed to help solidify central defense, has turned into an aerial and scoring threat for the Galaxy, scoring a goal in the past three games. “It’s crazy. He’s in the box more than some of our forwards are,” Galaxy defender Julian Araujo jokingly said. Raveloson’s goal in the 78th minute Wednesday against Real Salt Lake helped the Galaxy (8-5-1, 25 points) secure a point in the 2-2 draw. “It d...
