"You don't listen." Wait... or DO you?

Rewind twenty years...



John and I are eighteen years old and freshly married. We are having an argument. What about - oh, who the heck knows. But, there's one thing I do remember from this night, other than the fact we'd also recently gotten a waterbed.

John was going on about something and I was listening to whatever it was he was talking about... without saying anything.



He later was agitated because I was not saying anything. He… Continue

Dogs Can Sniff Lung Cancer

We already knew dogs are man's best friend, but they might also be our resident doctor. Ok, that's a bit of a stretch. However, in a German study, trained sniffer dogs identified 71 out of 100 samples with lung cancer, as well as 372 out of 400 cancer-free samples. According to the study, the dogs are able to identify volatile…

When Your Man Makes Love Like A Boy

I know this article will probably tick off some men. Sorry guys. But I also know that some women will immediately connect with the imagery. When it comes to sex, some men are definitely men and unfortunately other men seem destined to remain boys. What exactly do I mean? Not being a man myself of course I can only make…

Sex with a Sexual Mis-Match?

I’ve been reading “Who Should You Have Sex With” by Dr. Mark Thompson and have not been terribly surprised by his very masculine take on sexual chemistry. After all, men tend to be very logical and precise in their view of reality. He believes that where sex is concerned, like should always match like.

Want More Job Kudos? Supercharge Your Work!

You’ve got your work down to a system. You’ve been doing it long enough so that you know what to do, how to do it, and get your assigned tasks and duties done well (for the most part) and on time (for the most part), regardless of whether you’re assigning your “to-dos” to yourself or you have a boss who does that. You get that cost-of-living increase most years, or your customer base grows a little every year, so all should be well.

 

Yet you’re plagued by an undercurrent of…

Just 10-15 Minutes of Daily Physical Activity Reaps Health Benefits

It's time to drop the excuses for why you can't exercise. The American College of Sports Medicine has updated their exercise guidelines (the first time since 1998) and found that just 10-15 minutes will deliver health benefits. This is lower than the recommended of 150 hours per week, but the researchers found that even just a…

The Score: What Type of Lover Are You?

If you were to be rated by your partner as a lover on a scale of 1 to 10, what would you score?
