Jan 17, 2022

It’s scary when the power goes out, no matter where you live. Things are even worse during a major event like a hurricane or storm. Everything is dark, nothing is powered on, there is no heat, no appliances are working, nothing. You’re never quite sure when the power is going to come back on. It could be minutes, hours, days, or even longer — and very few people are prepared for a long blackout. The longer the outage the more troublesome the experience. It’s a smart move to have a bac ...read more

Ghosted By A Friend? 5 Steps To Moving On From Toxic Relationships

Jan 17, 2022

I have been through a friendship where 1) I’m not sure it was a real friendship, 2) my awareness and expectations of who this person really was was entirely wrong, 3) I’m not sure if I did anything to bring about her rapid change in tone with me, and 4) I’m sure I was dealing with a person with one or more personality and mood disorders. Let’s call this friend (or should I say “friend”?) Tara. Tara works with me in the same company. She’s a couple years older than me, now in her m ...read more

The idea that full-backs can switch places with midfielders and serve as playmakers has also been internalized and emulated. He ushered in an era of open-mindedness in which, yes, in fact, maybe goalkeepers could take penalties.Its statis ...read more
