Bullying beyond the schoolyard

When you stretch a rubber band, even after many times, it will likely return to its original form. We call this resilience. When children are stretched and bent out of shape due to bad experiences they encounter, we expect they will be resilient too and snap back to their previous self. However, after various types of difficult or traumatic interactions, children are not the same. The analogy of the rubber band does not hold up. Most children experience bullying in some capacity—as victim, as wi...

Zuppa Toscana {Olive Garden Copycat Recipe}

This delicious Zuppa Toscana soup recipe was a hit at one of our recent family get togethers. It tastes like the Olive Garden soup. Serve with some crusty bread for dipping up the soup! How can you go wrong with bacon, sausage and cream! You might also like my Tomato Basil Soup. It is so good and I have learned that if you used crushed tomatoes there is no need to blend or process! I also love this Cheddar Corn Chowder recipe. It is a thick and hearty soup. Probably one of my most favorite soups...

A Happy Little Piece About Bob Ross and The Joy of Painting

A certain despair comes with watching daytime television. I know this because I once had time to watch it. In those shiftless, after-school hours—old enough to move independently through the world, but young enough to avoid work—I'd cycle through the 13 channels on the knob of my 12-inch TV, snicking through the noise of insipid soap operas and inane talk-show chatter in search of one of my go-tos: M*A*S*H re-runs, The Carol Burnett Show, or Soccer Made in Germany. It was the '80s. Occasionall...

‘Owned’ by Joshua A.T. Fairfield [Saturday Morning Review]

There are few things as frightening as the idea that you are being watched, and yet, over the past few years, we’ve found out that we’re being watched by our own government and private companies all the time. That’s right: the scariest thing imaginable is happening, and the question we need to ask ourselves is, “How is this legal?” The short answer is that it shouldn’t be, and the long answer is found in Joshua Fairfield’s new book, Owned: Property, Privacy, and the New Digital Serfdom.

Life in the fast lane: how quickly can a new species evolve?

The world is changing fast, and evolution is not staying behind. The curious case of a new species of flower that evolved in the north isles of Scotland shows that evolution can create new species in a matter of years. The environment around us is changing rapidly as a human population of seven billion consumes resources more quickly than the planet can replenish them, and technology helps us reach the most remote corners of the planet. There are probably no places on Earth that are not affected...
