    When Does The Coronavirus "End" And Everything Returns To Normal?

    The coronavirus pandemic is hitting virtually everyone. There are almost no places on the face of the earth where there are no cases, and if there are, it is probably by deliberate omission of governments as is the case in North Korea and Venezuela.

    10 Most Wicked Aristocrats in History

    Throughout history kings, queens, emperors and other rulers are seldom remembered in a positive light. They did tough jobs in often unforgiving and violent eras and had to get their hands dirty now and then.

    2020

    2020

    So it was that in the year of our Lord Two thousand and twenty that the world was hit by a great fiendish plague of untold magnitude that spread to all corners of the world bringing disease, dis-ease, malaise, pain, sorrow, and confusion. Like a great whirlwind, it swept through the world - upending countries, governments, communities, education, and life, leaving death, tears, and confusion in its wake.

    5 Anti-Racist Podcasts to Listen to Right Now

    5 Anti-Racist Podcasts to Listen to Right Now

    A couple weeks ago, I published an article recommending my favorite wellness podcasts. Since then, it has come to my attention that the woman behind one of the podcasts, Jen Gotch, curated a culture of racism at her company ban.do. In an effort to provide folks, especially white folks, an alternative that is rooted in dismantling white supremacy and supportive of the Black Lives Matter movement, I am offering an updated set of recommendations centered on anti-racism work.

    The Top Ten Andrew Yang Videos of 2019

    The Top Ten Andrew Yang Videos of 2019

    In the final week of 2019, I asked the supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang (otherwise known as the Yang Gang) to let me know their favorite videos of the year with or about him, and to vote on them using likes on Twitter. The result was a list of over 30 favorite videos. I then took the top 15 from that list and asked the Yang Gang to rank them using ranked-choice voting (one of Yang's policy proposals) to best determine the top ten videos. Over 350 people voted and this ranked list is the result.

    Four Uncomfortable Truths About “The Left”

    Four Uncomfortable Truths About “The Left”

    Before I get into this, I want to play my “minority card” granting me the power of immunity to personal attacks about my perceived privilege. I hope by the time you finished reading this post the following declaration will be redundant. I am a masculine looking gay woman, I grew up poor, and I am half native. I also live with a mental illness, but I mean who doesn’t these days? My point is while my stats indicate I am not a typical person of “privilege,” my education and my bank account would state otherwise. I graduated at the University of Calgary with a bachelor of social work. I basically have a degree in oppression. We were always encouraged to advocate for people in-need. While I do agree with many of the principals and philosophies of social work I've seen being a "social justice warrior" become bastardized, and hijacked by today's youth in the name of leftist politics. Here are four uncomfortable truths about "the left" that more conservative thinkers and politically centered folk find cringey and foolish.

    Drugs You Didn't Even Know Existed

    Drugs You Didn't Even Know Existed

    A recurring theme in the psychology of addiction is that the opposite of addiction is connection. That means that getting hooked on opioids is more about an inability to achieve emotional intimacy than it is about seeking pleasurable experiences. If this is the case, then one approach to dealing with the ongoing opioid crisis is crafting policy that seeks to lift the impediments to emotional connectivity. That way the feelings that separate us from others are excised in order to create a space for genuine human connection.
