Be Upfront About Your Parenting Responsibilities in the Workplace

When I was 23, I worked at a newspaper. Just about every day, my boss would remark that she needed to head out at a certain hour to pick up her daughter. At the time, I didn’t give much thought to this announcement—her world of raising children seemed far off in the distance. But today, 14 years later, I’m certain…Read more...

Work: Its Purpose, Dignity, and Transformation

I t’s not like we’re hurting for books about a Christian understanding of work. In fact, the past few years have seen nothing short of an explosion of interest in the subject. So when yet another showed up in my mailbox, I was tempted to set it aside. I was tempted, that is, until I saw D.A. Carson’s commendation: “The last few years have witnessed a flurry of books that treat a Christian view of work. This is the best of them. Well written, historically comprehensive, theolo...

narcissists at work

The following series of tweets by @HoarseWisperer is an incredibly good examination of how people with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) control those who work for them. I am sure many of us have witnessed similar behaviours in toxic workplaces. Naming and understanding these behaviours can help us deal with them. I have expanded some abbreviations and highlighted what I think is the key insight. I worked for a severe narcissist for a while. I just realize I’ve never written specifically...

Spider-Man : Far From Home Trailer 2

Just earlier this week Marvel and Sony Pictures released the 2nd trailer for the upcoming Spider-Man : Far From Home trailer. Check it out below : So the reason my blog updates have been slower these past month or so is because I’ve been crazy busy working on the VFX for this film, including shots that are featured in this trailer. One of the biggest shots I’ve been assigned to work on is one below where Mysterio ( played by Jake Jake Gyllenhaal ) flies in to battle one of the elemental c...

Is emotional labor next to be outsourced and professionalized?

Work is hard. But we don't always realize how hard it is or, indeed, that some forms of labor are work at all. If you stand on your feet or stare at a screen all day, you can point to bodily strain. But if a task is something more mental, the difficulty is often invisible – which can make it hard to evaluate or celebrate those who perform such tasks.Jobs defined by their cognitive contributions tend to gain attention when other forms of labor are perceived as threatened. Anxieties about being in...

Should veganism receive the same legal protection as a religion?

Veganism is on the rise globally – but it can be contentious. Only recently, the editor of a food magazine joked that vegans should be force-fed meat while a bank employee told a vegan customer that they should be punched after he objected to some vegan graffiti near his home. But to what degree should veganism be protected by law as a philosophical belief? It is a question that is central to an employment tribunal case in the UK. Jordi Casamitjana claims he lost his job at the League Agai...

Professional Chic: 5 Dresses To Wear to Work

Professional Chic: 5 Dresses To Wear to Work For many of us, the office is like the gym. We don’t always want to go, but pressing on anyway is often rewarded with a glow of satisfaction for a job well done. There’s another similarity too. What you wear to work, or to workout, plays a role in your attitude. When I’m feeling ho-hum about the gym, I find myself a cute new fitness tank. And the same strategy works equally well for the office. A new outfit brightens your day and sometimes even cheers...

What’s The Best Way To Deliver A Roast?

A roast is designed to celebrate the person who is being honored Image Credit: Mikko Koponen In the world of public speaking, there are a number of different types of speeches that we can give. One of the most difficult speeches is called the roast. Just in case you’ve never given a roast before, a roast is intended to both honor and gently tease the guest of honor in front of his coworkers, family, and friends.

Hopeless Future

What do you do when you have been unable to have any hope for your own future? This has gone on for 6 years. I can still find joy, but i have lost almost everything. The mental healthcare system is appalling, its about cheap imported toxic drugs used to chemically neuter anyone who is passionate or who is white, straight, and conservative. And I am sick of being lumped in with opioid addicts. Addicts made a choice to abuse drugs. Depression, PTSD, are NOT a choice. Plus I am sick of illegals, mi...

My Anxiety Is Making Me Anxious

From a teen in the U.S.:  I know that you’ll probably roll your eyes at the “controversial disorder” but I am truly scared for myself and other people. I am a soldier in the Army, and I am on track to be an Officer in a couple years. I am also a freshman at university. I went to Basic Training last summer, and I suffered stress fractures, resulting in a breakage of my left hip. I am healed now, but I do fear that I may have suffered a bit worse mental health-wise. Because I am on track to be an ...

St. Joseph Shows Us the Love & Dignity of Work

The feast of St. Joseph the Worker was first established in the 1950s by Pope Pius XII. In a time when Communism was growing in power, St. Joseph served as a powerful reminder of the real purpose of work. Work is meant to be participation in the work of God. St. John Paul II, that famous champion against Communism, wrote Laborem Exercens in 1981, and this encyclical shed more light on the dignity of work for the Christian person. In doing so, it also gives us a better understanding of Joseph...

Your Criticism Should Be Aimed at the Lazy

It’s popular to rail against the social media figures that suggest that you should hustle and grind. Some find the idea of people working too much, too hard, and for too long to be bad advice, suggesting life is more than constant work. You will be warned to put your relationships before work, an idea with which I mostly agree, but not if your laziness prevents you from taking care of the people who make up those relationships. The criticism about people hustling and grinding applies to a small ...

When It Feels Like You Have Labored in Vain

The Church teaches that we need we need to cooperate with God’s grace, but sometimes it seems like our efforts amount to very little. That may be the whole point, as St. Therese explains in her account of a deeper conversion of the heart she experienced one Christmas. St. Therese had been suffering from emotional fragility for a decade — ever since her mother’s death. On Christmas 1886, her father announced that it would be the last time the family would be observing the tradition of pu...

The biggest change to manhood? Equal parenting.

The biggest example of a change in men's gendered behavior in recent years is the transformation of fatherhood. Nowadays, the definition of manhood has increasingly included being a present, and good caregiver. Women have historically been burdened with childcare and housework. So much so that they usually longer off time off for parental leave. Also, they're the ones tending to take off work if their kid is sick. Because of this heavy role in parenting, many women have not been able to advance ...
