Alzheimer’s advice: Heed it or fuhgeddaboudit?

According to NBC News, a committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine has offered a ray of hope for those who fear developing Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia.
A miracle cure remains elusive, but research shows that certain “common sense” practices (including regular exercise, specific memory training strategies and controlling high blood pressure) may substantially delay and soften memory loss.

Shining light on true abuse in the age of #MeToo

A few years ago, I wrote a column about Malala Yousafzai, around the time the young Pakistani activist was shot in the head by the Taliban. She was targeted for death simply because she wanted to help give girls the same educational opportunities as boys.
Instead, Malala survived. She became a symbol of fierce and principled defiance in the face of an oppressive regime, a true patriarchy.

It’s a computer bag, not a man purse!

Despite the accusations, I deny that I carry a man purse.
According to the New York Post, the man purse, or “murse,” is the “new must-have accessory taking over designers’ spring 2020 men’s runways.”
Murse designs include “cross-body satchels, fanny packs, top-handle totes and compact clutches” — whatever the heck “clutches” are.
Like so many other things in our divided culture, the murse’s growing popularity causes conflict that has only grown since 2015, when the Huffington Post asked its Facebook followers to sound off.

Apollo 11 anniversary: Something for everyone?

I feared that the upcoming 50th anniversary of the first manned moon landing might get eclipsed by other celebrations (the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, the 10th anniversary of financier Jeffrey Epstein’s latest girlfriend learning to tie her shoes, etc.), but apparently the sky is the limit for Apollo 11 remembrances.
And why not? This milestone offers something for everyone.
