What causes some men to be unkind, provocative, aggressive or violent towards women? 

 

One of the reasons that some men are unkind and aggressive is that their emotional armor has been completely anhililated by previous NPD drama bitches. And men these days cannot defend themselves because they are immediately tried and convicted in the court of public opinion.

How The Brady Bunch Destroyed Parenting For a Generation 

 

It?s not such a stretch then to suggest that a popular TV program, such as The Brady Bunch, might have had a significant impact on how people have raised their children since. Millions of people have grown up watching The Brady Bunch, and many have seen it either as the perfect version of normal, or as the way they wished that they were raised in their own childhood. Would it influence the way they might one day raise their own children?

I think so.

Yet if we look at kids today, we see evidence of a pronounced lack of discipline. I submit that a generation of people who were raised on The Brady Bunch might come to see some legitimacy in the weak response from the TV parents, as though it?s somehow the enlightened course of action.

I also submit that it?s that kind lack of discipline that has contributed to an explosion in the number of incarcerations. Some 65 million people in the US have criminal records; is it too far-fetched to connect the dots between a lack of discipline in the home, and the need for the criminal justice system to do in adult life what the parents wouldn?t do in childhood?

Real life isn?t The Brady Bunch, and it?s beyond silly to think that that kind of non-discipline has any use at all. Sadly, it seems to have become the new normal in American households today.

Men at Davos Discover New, Creative Excuse to Justify Excluding Women in the Workplace 

 

Men have found a new way to absolve themselves of the responsibility of mentoring and promoting women in the workplace: fear over the MeToo movement.

The New York Times reports that at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, basically an extended spa retreat for the mega-rich, male executives are afraid of the increasing movement to hold abusers accountable for their actions. As these two sources put it:

“I now think twice about spending one-on-one time with a young female colleague,” said one American finance executive, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the issue is “just too sensitive.”

“Me, too,” said another man in the conversation.

The lesson these men have apparently taken from MeToo is not that sexual harassment is a pervasive institutional issue, but that women are a threat, so best to just leave them behind. One economist found that nearly two-thirds of male executives were reluctant to hold one-on-one meetings with women “lest their motives be misconstrued by their colleagues.” Wall Street, already a boys club, is now reportedly excluding women from work dinners, meetings, and trips. The end result is same as the old result: women’s careers in male-dominated workplaces will continue to stall.

The Super Rich of Silicon Valley Have a Doomsday Escape Plan 

 

Years of doomsday talk at Silicon Valley dinner parties has turned to action.

In recent months, two 150-ton survival bunkers journeyed by land and sea from a Texas warehouse to the shores of New Zealand, where they’re buried 11 feet underground.

Seven Silicon Valley entrepreneurs have purchased bunkers from Rising S Co. and planted them in New Zealand in the past two years, said Gary Lynch, the manufacturer’s general manager. At the first sign of an apocalypse — nuclear war, a killer germ, a French Revolution-style uprising targeting the 1 percent — the Californians plan to hop on a private jet and hunker down, he said.

Everything You Know About Obesity Is Wrong 

 

From the 16th century to the 19th, scurvy killed around 2 million sailors, more than warfare, shipwrecks and syphilis combined. It was an ugly, smelly death, too, beginning with rattling teeth and ending with a body so rotted out from the inside that its victims could literally be startled to death by a loud noise. Just as horrifying as the disease itself, though, is that for most of those 300 years, medical experts knew how to prevent it and simply failed to.

Which brings us to one of the largest gaps between science and practice in our own time. Years from now, we will look back in horror at the counterproductive ways we addressed the obesity epidemic and the barbaric ways we treated fat people—long after we knew there was a better path.

It’s time to level with people about climate change 

 

More companies are taking steps to reduce their impact on the environment. Earlier this year, Ceres released an excellent comprehensive view of which companies are taking what actions (and what more needs to be done). The upside is that 64 percent of the 600 largest U.S. companies have commitments in place to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

As I’ve noted here before, many companies actually have concrete, science-based targets for reductions in waste and energy and water use — so much so that companies all sound the same when they talk about their goals. I’ve urged corporations to set the appropriate targets but to hone in on one environmental or social issue they can own — that they can be known for and solve. It’s what consumers want companies to do, and being known for leading on an issue is fully leverage-able from a brand-building standpoint.

But I think it’s time to go further.

It’s time to level with people.

All the relief money in the world won't rebuild Houston. Undocumented workers will. 

 

As the waters recede, Houston families and insurance agents are surveying the damage to the city: water-logged homes, ruined appliances, sagging roofs, and streets littered with debris.

Now the city faces this question: Who is going to rebuild the nation’s fourth-largest city as construction companies nationwide struggle to find workers?

Unauthorized immigrants were crucial to rebuilding New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. And they are likely to be desperately needed as Texas rebuilds to clean streets, demolish buildings, and reconstruct homes and offices.

But it’s a hostile time to be undocumented in Texas. Even beyond the Trump administration’s harsh rhetoric and actions on immigration, Texas leaders are engaged in a crackdown on unauthorized immigrants, passing a slew of laws to make it harder for them to live and work in the state. In such an environment, these laborers might not stick around for the work that will be needed.

Multiple deaths after tree falls on religious gathering in Portugal 

 

LISBON, Portugal -- Portuguese authorities said Tuesday that at least 12 people were killed when they were crushed by a falling tree on the island of Madeira.

Government official Pedro Ramos said 52 others were injured in the accident near the island capital of Funchal.

Another black activist, Ijeoma Oluo, is suspended by Facebook for posting about racism 

 

Activist and writer Ijeoma Oluo is the latest to suffer for Facebook’s inability — or perhaps unwillingness — to improve its reporting and moderation infrastructure. After receiving hundreds of racist and threatening messages in response to a joke she made on Twitter, Oluo began posting screenshots when it was clear that days of reporting did nothing. Facebook’s response was to suspend her account.

You can read Oluo’s account of things here, including some screenshots of the type of abuse she was receiving. Twitter, she said, was responsive. Facebook, not so much.

Facebook later reinstated her account, calling the suspension a “mistake.” I’ve asked the company for the rationale behind the suspension.

We talked with another activist recently, Leslie Mac, who like Oluo spoke out on racism using the platform, and like Oluo was suspended from it. It happened to Shaun King, too, after he posted a racist email he received.

Older Americans are cheating more, while younger ones cheat less 

 

An overwhelming majority of Americans, 75 percent, say adultery is always wrong. And most Americans don't do it. Over the past 30 years, the General Social Survey finds the share of married people who cheat has hovered pretty steadily at about 16 percent.

But University of Utah sociologist Nicholas Wolfinger says a generation gap has emerged since 2000 when it comes to infidelity: Older Americans cheat more than in the past. Younger Americans cheat less. His findings are published on a blog of the Institute for Family Studies.

Wolfinger was looking "at most of the usual demographic suspects" to see if anything had changed, including infidelity. And it was flat. But when he looked at patterns based on age differences, he noticed the shift in the numbers while analyzing GSS surveys that asked "have you ever had sex with someone other than your husband or wife while you were married?"

There wasn't much difference based on age in the answers until around 2004. He said that's when Americans in their mid-50s and 60s started reporting rates of extramarital sex that were roughly 5 to 6 percentage points higher than those of younger adults.
