Rules, rule of law, are a necessity and only become painful when they are directed at us. People go into a detailed scenario about getting weapons on airplanes (game or not) and the FBI then questions those people. That is not an infringement on peoples personal space, it sounds like someone is doing their job. Every time we stop at a red light it is not because we want to, its because we need to. These are trying times and some personal liberties are going to be restricted. I would like to believe that people would do the right thing without being forced to but for some that not the case. Hey, just wondering how efficient is Cuomo! Is he the only adult in the room? I'm going to keep an eye on him and hope he is the real deal but I am not trusting my intuition..... I really liked Rudy after 911 and now I think he is a buffoon.
A 10 rating for the candor of this writing. Wanting to help is not the same as helping.
I remember the the' water wheel' I thought it was brilliant. I wish it was. I agree one of the best solutions is to make credit more available .... Not as sexy but crazy-useful to compromised societies . A great article, keep stuff like this coming!!!
`Finally..... a great article that doesn't seem to have over-political harping and blaming.... Climate change is scary but this article allows for common respectful conversation.... I imagine this makes both ultra-liberal and staunch conservative to have their collective minds explode but somewhere in the middle, excellent writing like this could take root and create a dialogue that most people can engage in.
That being said, I do love Greta and her passion. We need her voice to counteract the simplistic views of the science deniers.
What a strange article…Sometimes little things seem so interesting… Like for some reason they still respect the traffic laws but routinely break into peoples homes and assault and rob them.....I can imagine the people that broke into that lady’s home and knocked her teeth out obeying nonexistent Traffic laws… Really an upside down world… Very interesting to read about....Very disturbing… But I think it’s important to read about places like this…
I think that was very aptly put… That Sarah Sanders may go down in history as the first press secretary to stop having press Briefings… Also I found it interesting that they both thought Amy Klobuchar is a solid candidate and feel she could be the best Candidate to take on Trump…
Very creepy, I am surprised Airbnb allows cameras in living-rooms. I have rented Airbnb and never thought about the privacy issue. Why is audio monitoring needed? I can understand the reason for video monitoring certain non personal areas but what's up with monitoring the audio? I feel even more violated thinking people are listening to my personal conversations. This needs to be aggressively addressed by Airbnb or they will suffer greatly. After reading this article I would be very hesitant to rent from Airbnb.
These articles are generational...... work could be fun and enlightening but unfortunately it’s usually just work .....I feel we as a society are looking to spiritualize every aspect of life ..... great if possible but let’s value the working stiffs and the value of work as work.
Dolan had some good points. There is however a boushie feel to this piece, an arrogance that at times made me feel uncomfortable. Optimum happiness comes with working 21 to 30 hours a week, that seems easy enough. This elitest type of group thought is disturbing, what percentage of the work force actually can decide they only want to work 21 to 30 hours a week. Possibly volunteers or artists or the academics but not the general employed population. Dolans path to happiness is just not available to most. The portion on marriage again felt like he was poking his finger at the masses and it didn't feel attached to reality. OH and his white glasses are silly and screaming " Look at me, I am not you!"
This was a detailed and disturbing article with many different angles . I was both disturbed and at times touched by the need many of us have for human connection. "Is it possible to have unconditional love without paying for it?" ?
To respond to Joanne's assertion that 'we are constantly being fed lies from the press' is inaccurate and dangerous. It continues the narrative of 'Fake News'. I do not believe the press is feeding us constant lies, unfortunetaly there is a more slanted view of certain story lines and there is agenda based reporting. For example, the Caravan. Horrible news coverage solely intended to drum up votes prior to the midterms. But referring to these news reports as lies undermines the confidence in all the free press. As partisan and gross as it seems, these politically motivated talking points should not be classified as lies.
I did not realize that reciprocity had a connection to buyers actually buying a product as a subconscious payback, or a return of a favor. Interesting, how easily we can be swayed. I must admit, I always donate to the causes that send little trinkets like pens or return address labels.
This article is exciting and frightening. Huge numbers of driverless cars are coming and they are coming soon. This phenomenon is going to change many things. I am optimistic and believe the good will outweigh the bad. It would be a great time to be a city planner with real vision.....
This could have been a snarky, takedown piece but I think author accurately and fairly described what is going on in this movement. Yes, tons of elitism, and not enough diversity, but also accurately described the need and benefit of community and connection. Really enjoyed the article, oh by the way, the founder of Wunderlust prefers tennis to yoga...go figure!
God Lord...... I have often wondered what it would be like if you were the guy who had his house stay intact but everything around was destroyed. There is a home in Florida that survived but all the homes around were destroyed, completely washed away and leveled. The engineering and construction worked and the home survived. Obviously this is an amazingly fortunate situation for the owners, not to lose all your personal belongings. BUT, what do you come back to? A decimated , lonely, barren moonscape, that will take decades to make livable. It is so sad and difficult to wrap your head around. Erica, your Dad will certainly survive.... It is the aftermath of this event will linger and become life changing. It is inevitable that mindsets and priorities shift. It happened to me! I am a different person after Sandy, not better , just different. These defining life events are difficult but in an odd way spiritually awakening. I would not want this to ever happen to anyone but when it does remember those people need time to adjust to the new norm. Those people need emotional support and love. Having a connected family and a sense of community is invaluable. Just being emotionally available is huge, and that is why I am so sure your family is going to be fine. You guys have such a close family bond and connection. Events like this only deepen family bonds and appreciation for each other. You guys are special. Stay positive and know we are always available to assist in any way.
This is so scary..... Is it possible to build a fireproof house? It seems like it should be possible, and during these times people just have to stay put in their homes, instead of running into peril. It sounds like many deaths were during the evacuation, in cars. We can make hurricane and flood proof homes, there are tornado shelters.... It seems catastrophic fires are natural disasters that we have not come to terms with. It seems like these events are going to become more common and more severe. So disturbing.
This is a short and precise article on the #MeToo movement. Jiayang Fan takes the reader down the path of personal choices and how it is offensive and unseemly to some and beneficial to others. This article is a soft sell for taking a breath and not judging peoples actions as always being a one sided abuser/abused scenario. As a 60 year old man with over hundreds of employees that have worked for our companies I would now be hesitant to mentor a young female employee but would instantly take on a male employee (if that person asked for advice). I believe the tough scrutiny of the #MeToo movement stifles possible, respectful and beneficial connections with caring honest people of different ages and genders. That being said, I am a huge supporter of the movement and its core intent.
