The headline isn’t supposed to make sense as a sentence, it’s the topics covered in my discussion with Jim Mora on Critical Mass today.
Umair Haque urges us to turn our back on oppulance and seek eudaemonia instead. He defines that as flourishing – the pursuit of fulfilment, inspiration, creation and accomplishment.
Romance novelists and readers defend romance fiction against the accusation that “women can become as dangerously unbalanced by these books’ .
On a related topic, the Guardian has taken a paragraph from 10 books and asks if you can tell the sex of the author. I scored only 6/10 and that came with an accusation of sloppy thinking.
Maybe the sloppy thinking is the result of too much noise – Alan Schwarz writes in the New York Times about pumping up the volume for fans at sports games.
