Method to The Method’s Madness
“Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.” — Carl Jung First, the “If This.”
How Video Review is Wrecking Footy
They call it VAR, and you can be forgiven for wondering what the (heck) that is. Technically, VAR it stands for Video Assistant Referee, which you probably know better as “the guy in charge of video replay.” (And it’s almost always a guy.)
The contributor to a well-known writing hub was outraged. Outraged! He had scored a quickie interview with one of the world’s leading scientists, but he was [darned] if he could come up with the writing hub’s required 600 word-minimum.
Unmasking The Masked Singer
Let’s just say, for the sake of argument, you're so over The Voice. It's not all that. Not what it used to be, anyway. Maybe it was jazzy once, in the beginning, when everything seemed fresh and new. Now, though, The Voice feels like, if not a broken record exactly, a little overfamiliar.

Not many sports fans in North America follow the machinations of the European soccer leagues — “football” to those in the UK — but citing the NBA or MLB seems the most effective way to tell sports fans here about a crazy new proposal called “the Super League” that has the potential to upend everything footie fans have grown to like and love about Premier League soccer in the UK — and La Liga, the Bundesliga, Serie A and Ligue 1 in other countries as well.
Never Grow Old
