Is It Love or Infatuation?

Falling in love feels euphoric, transporting us into a world of vivid colors. Everything is new and exciting. At first glance, it’s not much different from the experience of infatuation. However, over time, a love relationship evolves into a deep intimacy that strengthens each partner, while infatuation erodes one’s self-esteem, triggers addiction, and fosters insecurity. How do you know if what you have is love or infatuation? Here are a few ways you can begin to distinguish between the two. ...

Talk in the Raturday Night Café and the Google search it inspired.

Click to enlarge and clarify...Here's a link to last night's café."Marriage is the death of hope" brings up webpages that purport to quote Woody Allen. I'm dubious. "Marriage is the death of romance" gets me to some boring relationship advice plus the assertion that it's the translation of a Chinese proverb:I'm dubious. It used to be very common to hear characters on TV (often in ads) say "Ancient Chinese wisdom" (in a fake Chinese accent) followed by something in the form of a proverb (almost a...

7 Ways to Let Go of a Past Love

According to Oscar Wild, “the heart was made to be broken.” Few experiences are as painful as severing the ties with a romantic partner — even if you’re the one who initiated the breakup. Your world may feel groundless, colorless, meaningless. However, a heartbreak can also inspire surprising self-growth and gift you with a sense of independence and vitality that you didn’t know what possible. Often tears fertilize the seeds of self-transformation and nurture a new self that needed to be discov...

How to start selling items on Amazon — a step-by-step guide

Becoming an Amazon seller is a great way to make a few bucks off that used text book, a thoughtful but unwanted gift, or off of vintage or collectible items.  If you complete fewer than 50 sales on Amazon annually and sell items for less than their original price, you don't need to worry about tax documents. Here is how to set up an "Individual" seller account and start selling with Amazon.   When you think of the process going on behind an Amazon sale, you likely picture a complex network ...

“Singers and Musicians” and Why Our Language Matters

There it was yet again, this time in an article written by a living composer in October 2018.  It stuck out like a four-inch crease in a freshly ironed shirt. While it may first appear—like so many other biases—to be simply a polite substitution, it actually carries a condescension that comes from a long history of implied assumptions that communicate “separate and certainly not equal.” Not even The New York Times is immune from this double standard. Quite to the contrary, you’ll come across the...

11 times the Los Angeles Rams went Hollywood

The Los Angeles Rams arrived in L.A. in 1946, but you could argue they’d gone Hollywood two years earlier when they drafted UCLA quarterback Bob Waterfield, who married screen star Jane Russell when the team still played in Cleveland. Or maybe it happened in 1949 with “Easy Living,” in which the film’s fictional football players roles were played by Rams such as Kenny Washington, Elroy “Crazylegs” Hirsch, and Fred Gehrke (who created the Rams’ horns logo). Regardless of the exact moment, Hollywo...

Jeff Bezos, Donald Trump and crony capitalism

Donald Trump’s Tweet dubbing Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s billionaire founder, “Jeff Bozo” reveals more than the locker room MO of our president. Our country’s roots are in England, where people of importance are knighted. In America, we now have our own version of knighthood: a nickname from Donald Trump. Amazon is this little hidden gem you may not have heard of where you can buy things.  It’s just like eBay except the Amazon stuff doesn’t show up at your house smelling like cigarette smoke and moth b...

'Best American Nonrequired Reading 2018'

None While the premise of the Best American Nonrequired Reading anthology has sometimes been suspect, its motivation and regular development has always been righteous. Started in 2002 by Dave Eggers (who stayed in the role of editor through the 12th edition in 2013) and developed through his national non-profit 826 Valencia (and eventually 826 National) literacy initiative, this collection of non-fiction, graphic narratives, and fiction is regularly selected by a group of students usually betwe...
