News 20.05.22 : Today’s Articles of Interest from Around the Internets

The word ‘hope’ seems to hold an unambiguous quality in our vocabulary, imbued with a kind of purity that makes it unquestionably good. From old sayings to modern slogans, we are encouraged to develop and sustain a sense of hope. As a psychotherapist, I believe there is good reason for this. I have repeatedly witnessed the overwhelming burden of hopelessness and the centrality of hope in healing and growth. This is particularly true for people who experienced chronic childhood trauma, including emotional abuse or neglect, which undermines their ability to imagine that a different future is possible.

Whom should you marry? This may be the most consequential decision of a person’s life. The billionaire investor Warren Buffett certainly thinks so. He calls whom you marry “the most important decision that you make.” And yet people have rarely turned to science for help with this all-important decision.

The computer was the central device, the “digital hub,” that could be used to edit photos and movies or manage a large music library. Jobs tasked Apple’s programmers with making software for editing photos, movies and managing digital music. While they were doing this, they discovered that all the early MP3 players were horrible. Jobs asked his top hardware guy, Jon Rubinstein, to see if Apple could do better.

Style Inspiration: Denim Days

NOW THAT WE are out of our trainers and tracksuit bottoms and back into actual clothing again, we’ve switched to living in blue jeans and haven’t looked back. In fact, it’s such a good alternative, we’re looking to add denim shirts and blazers and dresses and skirts to the mix. Denim days may be here again, but that’s because they’ve never really left …
