The difference between healthy and unhealthy love
So when you think about a child, a close friend, or a romantic partner, the word "love" probably comes to mind, and instantly other emotions rush in: joy and hope, excitement, trust and security, and yes, sometimes sadness and disappointment. There might not be a word in the dictionary that more of us are connected to than love.https://www.ted.com/talks/katie_hood_the_difference_between_healthy_and_unhealthy_love/transcript?language=en

We Need To Rethink Casual Sex
Social psychologist and sex researcher Terri Conley thinks it's high time we stop feeling guilty about enjoying casual sex—no matter what society says. In this entertaining talk, Conley interrogates three common myths about sexuality and gender and suggests a few new, guilt-free ways to think about our sex lives.https://www.ted.com/talks/terri_conley_we_need_to_rethink_casual_sex?utm_campaign=social&utm_medium=referral&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_content=talk&utm_term=humanities&fbclid=IwAR3SdXX2xcBXUWir1_ZTsEgNzt3jjBkU4MicU3u8QstZxMBgy3wsbfcXV5g

Interabled Relationships
As an adult almost 30 years out of college, I cannot name the universities any of my friends and colleagues attended — unless they went to Harvard, in which case it comes up frequently, usually as shorthand for “I’m right.”So it’s an ominous sign when Ben Mattlin drops his Harvard credentials into the second paragraph of his trenchant yet frustrating new book, “In Sickness and in Health: Love, Disability, and a Quest to Understand the Perils and Pleasures of Interabled Romance.” Mattlin, author of “Miracle Boy Grows Up” about his life with a genetic disorder called spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), is cheerful, witty, inventive and, yes, very smart. The premise of his new book is terrific: In a series of 15 chapters, Mattlin interviews people with significant disabilities — including SMA, multiple sclerosis, brittle bone syndrome and paralysis — who, like him, have found love with able-bodied partners.https://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/books/the-perils-and-pleasures-of-inter-abled-romance/2018/02/09/5a861e1a-0066-11e8-bb03-722769454f82_story.html?utm_term=.95711b987dfa

Breaking through the "glass ceiling"
It’s not enough for women in any industry to look at breaking through the glass ceiling. We need to actually change workplaces. They are not working for women, they are not working for men, and they are not working for polar bears. In other words, the leadership disparity between men and women is more than just a women’s problem.” https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/292514
