The truth about time management: how I went from chaos to punctual calm in one week

Thursday 06:04 GMT

Without order, I had all these talents and skills, but only 20% of them could be expressed in a day because they were mostly used getting through the chaos.”

I, conversely, want to do it all in a week, instituting one of her principles a day and becoming a functioning human who is not imposing her chaos on others by next Thursday. Morgenstern took it very slowly: she spent six months just organising her nappy bag, before she moved on to her kitchen, her house and, ultimately, the fabric of time itself.

Juul Says It Will Quit Social Media

Thursday 06:04 GMT

E-cigarette startup Juul Labs Inc. said it is shutting down its Facebook FB 0.43% and Instagram accounts and curbing its use of other social media in the U.S., part of the company’s response to the Food and Drug Administration’s call for changes to curb underage e-cigarette use.

Ana Homayoun, a school consultant and author of “Social Media Wellness,” said taking down social media accounts wouldn’t stop the proliferation of user-generated content about Juul, and that policing posts would be difficult for social media platforms. “It’s a gray area,” she said, noting that it’s not always clear if a person in a photo is a minor or whether an image is targeted to young users or not.

The Earth is in a death spiral. It will take radical action to save us

Thursday 06:04 GMT

Decades of institutional failure ensures that only “unrealistic” proposals – the repurposing of economic life, with immediate effect – now have a realistic chance of stopping the planetary death spiral.

Because we cannot save ourselves without contesting oligarchic control, the fight for democracy and justice and the fight against environmental breakdown are one and the same. Both tasks require a complete revision of our relationship with the living planet.

Do you like dogs You will love Dogs.

Saturday 08:59 GMT

While some of the episodes are zeroed in on particular dogs, like an Italian fisherman's best friend, others are focused more broadly on a culture, such as rescue dogs in New York City.

Ever since being scarred by My Dog Skip as a child, I've been wary of any dog-related media that sells itself as "heartfelt," or the story of "unconditional love." This was definitely my first concern when I saw the trailer for Netflix's new six-episode "dogumentary" series.

Catholic bishops delay votes on steps to combat sexual abuse crisis

14-Nov-2018

One expert speculated that because the abuse crisis is a global problem, the Vatican wants to set global standards when Pope Francis meets with all of the bishops when they gather in Rome in February for an unprecedented meeting he has called to deal with the clergy abuse crisis.

It was an abrupt change of plans that meant the bishops would not take action on two crucial measures; one, a new "code of conduct" for bishops, and the other a civilian-led investigative body to look at high-ranking clergy, who cover up abuse or are abusers themselves.
