I do enjoy an old fashioned printed newspaper ... I get both e-news and printed and both have value, but the printed versions feel better and I like finishing the paper and knowing it is done. e-papers just go on forever.
My first 10 rating..... not because of exceptional writing or clever quips but the content is so interesting. I was watching Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel last night, a segment was how kids are 10x more prone to have surgery now than 12 years ago..... the reason is they are pushed to excel in ONE sport, soccer, tennis , football whatever..... This must be the parents pushing these kids, they could not possibly know that they don't want to swim or play baseball, anyway the repetitive nature of training on these young bodies has created a generation of injured young children..... if they would be exposed to all sports and activities for sheer fun the injuries would be drastically reduced...... I see a direct correlation to this article, spread out the mind, the experiences, see what sticks on these kids.........ok, back to the article, imagine polymaths in this article being pigeon holed into one path, what a crime..... I had the ability to do what ever I wanted as a kid and young adult, never really excelled in any single field but loved the paths I took..... sports, art, business, writing, music.... I value all these experiences and am so grateful that I never focused too much on only one talent (or lack of talent) anyway.... by far the best article. thanks for posting!
When does feeling grateful for my life begin to feel kinda piggy?..... I am lost and conflicted at times but I do not want to lose the emotion of being grateful for the things I have worked for.... but there is no denying I have and my kids have had many more opportunities than the kids and people in this article.... Yes we work for the things we have but it is still so unfair.
Kinda disturbing.... I am not sure a therapist would say anything like "So what's wrong with you again?" and the meds are wack, but Josh's suffering is real and hard to read...... anyway very some touching and poignant moments. Gets my first 10 rating!
great insight..... It is very personal, I agree with everything written but there was so much omitted, I think older friendships do fade because of changing lifestyles but new relationships that are more current do crop up ..... I value my older friends and do try to keep in touch with old school buddies, and work buddies and all kinds of older relationships, but the newer people I become attached to seem to be in the same emotional space that I orbit.... It is still super fun to run into old friends and catch-up, then we end with the "We should try to keep more in touch." ...... but we seldom do.
Lots of facts and a somewhat dry read but a great source of info and insight to the new face of retail..... 2 things that were not addressed in enough detail, 1. the environmental impact on the planet. 2. the impact on small retailers. I am a small retailer (liquor store) and have a nagging fear that we might lose a large % of our sales to an Amazon-ish mindset...... I found the last mile data interesting. I am conflicted with this type of E-Shopping and cannot deny the connivence, but what will be the true cost to lost downtowns, and the demise of local shops. Anyway, tons of info on an issue that is important to me and my family. THX.
Sometimes we don't intend to signal and we are accused of doing so...... I drive a crappy car because I rarely drive and don't really use or need any of the bells and whistles that the new cars have..... I am regularly asked if I am trying to make a point because I drive a vehicle that people believe to be well below my means. HA, that is so annoying, but I am somewhat self-aware that I look ruddier than I actually feel I am. I feel pressured to drive a new more suitable car at times so I do not send out the wrong signal...... What have we humans become? BTW I have no plans to buy the Range Rover my kids insist I drive.
I would like to know how long people stay in tech jobs. It seems like bouncing around is common. Some of these perks might be needed to persuade new talent, then it seems to get in the way of productivity.... an odd dilemma.
How many times have you read something and just wished someone else would read it? It's always a hassle to get that person or people to the site...... WELL WALLLA! You guys have done it, really makes shared reading simple and easy, I see huge platforms growing, political, sports,lifestyles, health..... and of course fiction pieces. Really looking forward to getting a network of people to discuss things that are mutually interesting with good content to support those discussions. Thanks guys!
In the tennis community we are very aware that the big three are so dominating and so old! Possibly this is the reason that some of these young amazing talents have not challenged for majors. It does seen that the younger players are in better shape but they appear to lose focus in the later sets. I would like some more evidence that screen time is effecting concentration.
Great article..... A difficult topic to discuss, but really should be hashed out
especially by true "Me Too'ers" ..... He got a raw deal..... There should have been a better process for him to address these charges, the rush to judgement seemed calculated, especially by Kristen Gillibrand, I met her and actually had a conversation with her, I came away unimpressed. Gillibrand did not seem genuine. According to the article, this was a political takedown by a right-wing group. The democrats were played, and lost a true soldier for the progressives. I hope he can recover and get back into politics.
This was interesting, little spippets of silly info stays embeded in our thoughts and we tent to remember some of those thoughts with much more detail then when we origonally obsorbed these moments. Selective memory says alot about us. What we remember and why is very interesting and does shape our soul.
