Stress is one of the most talked about topics in modern society. About 610,000 Americans die of heart disease every year, which accounts for about one out of every four deaths. There are many things that contribute to heart disease, the most agreed upon being smoking, excessive drinking, obesity, unhealthy diet, and lack of exercise. […]

The Efficacy of Wide-ranging Interests

I happened to bump into an old acquaintance of mine the other day whom I hadn’t seen in years. What I remembered about him was that he was one of the most narcissistic people I’ve ever known. And, true to his old self, he immediately began talking about money. At one point in our conversation, […]

Bye, Bye Megyn

I’ve written a number of times about the sad ending of my love affair with Glenn Beck, the most talented person ever to grace a television screen. Today, I find him to be such a turnoff that I’m tempted to mute him when he occasionally appears as a second-rate guest on someone’s show. Beck’s fall […]

The Connection between Evolution and Purpose

My last article about the origin of the universe raised a lot of interesting questions from readers. One, in particular, caught my attention. A reader who goes by the name of Joseph wrote, among other things: “The meaning and purpose of life comes from you … I do believe that if life or existence is […]

In this day and age of ISIS, police assassinations, criminals in public office, riots on demand, and the moral equalization of every conceivable kind of “lifestyle,” it’s no wonder that mindfulness has become an increasingly popular technique. The practice of mindfulness has its roots in Buddhism, which is always a good sign. Moreover, Thoreau, Emerson, […]

Now that spring training has begun for another season of the Political Liars Circuit, it’s a good time to reflect on the greatness of truth, since it’s a commodity that will be in decreasing supply over the next fourteen months. The Hillary Fabrication Express is nothing more than a warmup act for what is to […]

George Will and the Clueless Establishment

I almost never watch Chris Wallace’s Fox News Sunday, but I made an exception last weekend because I wanted to see his interview with Ben Carson. Carson, as always, was great. But I made the mistake of not turning the TV off after the interview ended. In a moment of uncontrolled masochism, I started watching […]

The “Not Enough Jobs” Scenario: An Economic Fallacy (But Possibly an Accurate Forecast)

Posted on August 13, 2015 by Dr. Mark W. Hendrickson

Once again, a scholar with impressive credentials is broadcasting the gloomy notion that Americans face a job-poor future. The insufficient-jobs scenario appeared in George Mason University economist Tyler Cowen’s book “Average Is Over” a couple of years ago. It resurfaced again recently in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Vivek Wadhwa, “a fellow … director of research … […]

Megyn Kelly, Queen of Narcissism, Gets a Pass

Posted on August 11, 2015 by Robert Ringer

678x678-MegynKelly

Megyn Kelly is razor sharp, impeccably prepared, relentless, tough, verbally skilled, and, to boot, a pretty good looker. She’s also an egomaniacal smart-aleck who seems intent on following Glenn Beck down the path to mediocre celebrity status. When Kelly is on her game and acts like a broadcast professional, there’s no one better. She’s at […]

The Zombieization of Humankind

While at a conference last week, I stepped onto a hotel elevator one morning and was struck by the Huxleyesque scene that greeted me. There were eight people on board, compromising a diverse cross section of gender, age, and race. They included one nicely dressed black woman, who looked to be in her mid-forties … […]
