Japanese ethics board calls out ‘Dragon Ball’ for Master Roshi’s behavior

But from a modern perspective, and with the progress we've made in the fight for women's rights, Japan's Broadcasting Ethics and Program Improvement Organization (BPO) decided to publish the following complaint: "In an animation program, there…

argues that Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Asra Nomani as “worst possible ‘experts’ on Islam” « Why Evolution Is True

I used to write a lot for The New Republic (TNR), and enjoyed it. Then they changed ownership (with most of its staff resigning), reduced the frequency of the paper edition, and became, well, boring. . . just another political site (granted, a left-wing one), lacking the cultural and literary pieces that help give it its reputation. (Remember that the great literary critic Edmund Wilson was once TNR’s literary editor,  helped popularize figures like James Joyce, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and was a major figure in refining…

Going Slow: The Slow Movement

What do sex, journalism, architecture and religion have in common? They’ve all recently been absorbed by the Slow Movement.

As the ‘slow’ prefix grows increasingly ubiquitous, the question of what it actually means is becoming harder to answer. The Ancient Greeks had two words to talk about time. Chronos is clock time, measured in seconds, minutes and hours. It…

We’ve reached a critical point where most leaders are aware culture is important, but they range from being confused to intentionally uninformed about what culture change is all about. This culture awareness-education gap appears to be growing, with a proliferation of over-simplified or incorrect education, unreliable surveys and analytics, so-called experts at…

Do poor people eat more junk food than wealthier Americans?

Eating fast food is frequently blamed for damaging our health. As nutrition experts point out, it is not the healthiest type of meal since it is typically high in fat and salt. More widely, it’s seen as a key factor in the growing obesity epidemic in the U.S. and throughout the world. Because it’s considered relatively inexpensive, there’s an assumption that poor people eat more fast food than other socioeconomic groups – which has convinced some local governments to try to limit their access. Food journalist…
