Barbers Get Black Men Talking About Mental Health
Stephan “Step the Barber” Swearingen and his staff of barbers do more than just operate clippers. The four-member team at Plush Midtown Barber and Beauty Salon in Atlanta banters with customers about sports while ESPN is on TV, politics as they check Twitter and Instagram on their phones, music that’s playing over the Bluetooth speakers, and the lunch menu from the food truck that dropped by. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/barbers-black-mental-health-lorenzo-lewis_n_5d4890b0e4b0d291ed0542b1?utm_campaign=hp_fb_pages&utm_medium=facebook&ncid=fcbklnkushpmg00000063&utm_source=main_fb&fbclid=IwAR3zcvGvc5oo3tVUd4OyRYfYBxlhOOriGiPFiGhqmu_pABdvhcaYlyFyVFs

Honeymoon Hashtag Hell
If you ask JP Smith what he remembers most about his 2014 honeymoon in Aruba, he’ll say the sunsets, but not because of their beauty. “It was like a photo shoot for some magazine that would never exist,” said Mr. Smith, 38, a real estate agent in New York, and he didn’t mean that in a good way. He described the weeklong vacation with his new wife, Natasha Huang Smith, as a “sunset nightmare,” “stressful,” “cumbersome” and “torturous.” Ms. Huang Smith, 34, who works in digital marketing, was attempting to showcase their honeymoon on Instagram. “I had to prove to the world that I was having a great time,” she said. And so half of her day was spent shooting, editing, or planning Instagram posts. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/19/fashion/weddings/honeymoon-hashtag-hell.html?smid=fb-nytimes&smtyp=cur&fbclid=IwAR0WYWHN1P5wHHUiHaFxNjb0R_hsJ-tQ_Ie6iieTAU3C0_JDZkpgYyZZG0A

Who is blowing up ships in the Gulf?
SHINZO ABE hoped this was a moment for diplomacy. His visit to Tehran this week, the first by a Japanese prime minister since the Islamic revolution in 1979, was meant to reduce tensions between America and Iran. After a meeting with Iran’s president, Hassan Rouhani, Mr Abe warned that the region could “accidentally” slip into conflict. And then, a few miles off Iran’s southern coast, came an illustration of how that might happen.https://www.economist.com/middle-east-and-africa/2019/06/13/who-is-blowing-up-ships-in-the-gulf?fsrc=gp_en?fsrc=scn/fb/te/bl/ed/whoisblowingupshipsinthegulftensioninthestraitofhormuz&fbclid=IwAR1ixnthr1XadlUykcWi686Cc6GLpYmpe6n6mQYsnc1zO0wZvEXsJUANaYA

Male Managers, uncomfortable working around women
LeanIn.org and SurveyMonkey just released the results of a survey on the state of men and women interacting in the workplace in the age of #MeToo. The results are frustrating. The data reveals that 60% of male managers say they are uncomfortable performing common workplace activities such as mentoring, working one on one, or socializing with a woman. That’s a 32% increase over last year.https://www.fastcompany.com/90351649/sad-survey-60-of-male-managers-are-uncomfortable-working-around-women?partner=rss&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=rss+fastcompany&utm_content=rss&fbclid=IwAR0pEfPZ-1Lbr3gfOY7o6wCQZdkoAxHrF6jXyFDTu1JLBtkT1HLx_KGJqt4

Rethinking Infidelity
Infidelity is the ultimate betrayal. But does it have to be? Relationship therapist Esther Perel examines why people cheat, and unpacks why affairs are so traumatic: because they threaten our emotional security. In infidelity, she sees something unexpected — an expression of longing and loss. A must-watch for anyone who has ever cheated or been cheated on, or who simply wants a new framework for understanding relationships.https://www.ted.com/talks/esther_perel_rethinking_infidelity_a_talk_for_anyone_who_has_ever_loved?utm_campaign=social&utm_medium=referral&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_content=talk&utm_term=social-science&fbclid=IwAR3d5I5aWEu4P3PrpQkXEQztcfEyz1mInMX_UWtXyVrTrGfeBkGePLS6zZg

Rise of the No-warning Divorce
I'd be lying if I said I saw it coming," says Emma*. "We were busy parents and professionals. We didn't really argue. There were ups and downs, but nothing that said 'unhappy'." It was Boxing Day, after what Emma thought had been the perfect Christmas, when her husband turned to her and announced he was leaving. She was 39, they'd been together since they were teenagers and they had a nine-year-old son. He told her, "I can't do this any more," and admitted that there was someone else.https://www.smh.com.au/lifestyle/life-and-relationships/i-felt-as-if-the-person-i-knew-died-the-rise-of-the-no-warning-divorce-20181113-p50fq3.html?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook&fbclid=IwAR1FsTDDVDe807UF1N0Zajg8SUsnkMVbo2dDqK8fESTf2uF3NaFgJKSC5vQ#Echobox=1542483593
