Who doesn’t have a daughter, sister or know a young teenage girl who seems attached to her cell phone, but who is really on the leash? Who is leading whom?
There is no doubt that adolescence is a time of identity formation, social comparison, and mental development, but what happens…
The human body is a miracle of nanotechnology that far exceeds the advances of modern science. The good news is that nutritional science is unfolding new discoveries in cellular nutrition and the wonders of natural healing. Science cannot create life. Only life can complement life.
There is a world of…
As a Canadian with universal health care, this kind of medical control or tyranny is appalling in a rich country. I had cancer with negligible expenses. My mother had cancer and my father suffered with Alzheimer in long term care for 8 years with minimal expenses. I inherited my parent's house as a rightful heir to their hard work. Generational wealth is passed on to our children. Somehow people from the bottom up need to rise up and demand humane changes from the few on top ... people power.
If you step away as a neutral ego, who will do the dishes? Nobody wants to get hurt in a strangers' bar fight. However, in personal relationships, ego also needs to be soothed by compromise or managing conflict. Can't have dirty dishes piling up.
It takes 1,000 years for nature to grow 3cm of topsoil, and America has managed to burn through several feet in the past century.

Never thought I'd say that topsoil may be more important for survival than how to control screen addiction as one of the "most destructive pieces of technology ever invented". After all even a Selfie needs a sandwich or apple from time to time. Not sure if Canada will be swallowed up by American collapse but we watch and worry, too. Excellent to-the-point article.
My running theory prior to this was that teenage girls are easy targets. Their brains are not fully developed, so they are preyed upon, groomed, and demeaned by our patriarchal society. I didn’t just want to include my voice in this piece, though, because this is very much not an issu…
I pray for more interviews and articles from teenage girls themselves so their fears and frustrations can be heard. Even then their humanity, vulnerability and social value may be questioned but they are our future mothers of the next generation. Even Facebook's harmful research and a couple days of mainstream media alarm cannot seem to turn this misogynistic tide. I pray for our young teens and women in our society. Thank you so much for writing this article and more if possible.
Unfortunately, a sad but true occurrence that probably happens more because of changing social norms. In the past, comments about cute kids probably outnumbered regular looking kids, but now because of social media exposure, good-looking may infer adult standards and expectations. Protect your daughter in her teen years if she gets a cellphone. Very descriptive writing style that reads easily and remembered.
The bottom question is why so many people are looking for salvation from an adrenal pumping non-guru hypocrite in a brief flurry of wild exhaustion. How did our self ego, our family, our work, our friends seem to have such minimal value as to spend nearly $8000 dollars for a few hours of satisfaction by deriding someone else and riding away on delusional hype? Have the onslaughts of social media and reality shows created more repression and failure where Self can't figure it out, but Selfies rule?
Apply the best practices to increase your article’s virality. But don’t chase virality. Write to educate, inspire, and solve your readers’ problems. Don’t write for some algorithms’ bots. Write for the reader.
If your writing can't make society or the world a better place, more informed, more altruistic, more integral to the Big Picture...why seriously bother or just have fun b y wasting time?
