When he met him at eight years old, Bob Bowman knew he had a champion-in-the-making on his hands. Twenty one years later, Michael Phelps would become the most decorated Olympian of all time, winning 22 medals (including 18 gold) and, at the 2008 Olympics, becoming the world record holder for the for most first place [...]

Let’s be honest, the sex comedy genre is full of easy pickings and lowbrow jokes. Most sex comedies feature staple cliches like the horny jocks, pimply virgins, scenes of accidental (and deliberate) nudity, disasters in the bedroom and lots of raunchy escapades. Although some movies play around with the formula, the focus is always on sex – and lots of it. However, while most sex comedies don’t set the bar very high and are happy to stumble between nude scenes and sex jokes with the flimsiest of plots holding it all together, some are actually worth watching for more than just the T & A.

Working With Depression

My Dilemma With Working With Depression
I haven’t worked in nearly eight years. I’m not happy about, or sad about – it just is. Well, that’s not entirely true. I do occasionally miss being in the workforce. I miss spending time with co-workers. I miss being productive, but right now is not the time for that. I guess I am productive, very productive actually, just not in the traditional sense. Both my pdoc and my therapist agree that I’m not ready to return to work. I hesitantly agree with them. Those who see me may wonder what the problem is. I certainly seem capable. However, they don’t see the days where depression has dragged down into deep dark pits of despair and I can barely get out of bed, much less leave the house. When I’m hypomanic, (a milder form of mania) I’m more able to hide what I’m going through, but I get disoriented easily, confused and always aware a big crash is on the way.

Enterovirus Outbreak: What signs to watch for with your children

There have been quite a few news stories out there about the "mysterious" respiratory virus that has been found in 10 different states and has spread quickly to infect hundreds of children. The virus has caused these children to get very sick very quickly and many have required hospitalization for treatment. This virus has come out of nowhere and is spreading rapidly, considering the time of year (during the winter this kind of outbreak would be more expected due to staying indoors, sharing items in school, etc.) What is the scoop on this virus and how concerned should you be for your children? Let's not listen to the hype and break it down!

Don't shoot, I am only trying to help!

My New Adventures in America. Slowing down I turned the band. A car was standing on the shoulder of the road, a young woman lying on the ground next to it, another, standing above her, was waving frantically. I slammed on the break. Leaving my nine years old daughter in the car, my wife and I ran to see if we could help.

The smiling figure of a Victorian man dangles from two thin wires above the heads of visitors to the Otford Heritage Centre. It looks like he’s sitting in a flying goalpost, but he’s actual harnessed into the wooden frame of an early tri-plane. The man is Percy Sinclair Pilcher and his plane was called the…

We're always interacting with each other. Our lives collide, and leave imprints on others about our nervous laughters and sloppy hand gestures. Social psychology is a composition of unwritten social rules that structure our behaviour, things that are almost so obvious that we miss them completely. Let me enlighten you.

Monarch butterfly. They need milkweeds in order to breed.

I have snails in my garden. These aren't those snails. These are different snails that live about 40 minutes from my home. There's a spot of milkweeds in a certain field that I know about that host terrestrial snails, preying mantises, and various butterfly caterpillars. I just bought a Lensbaby. I figured these little guys would make perfect subjects for this lens. Let me know what you think.

Human Without God: My Life In Savannah

In my memory Savannah was always hot and humid. Maybe that's why those giant oaks threw their dense shadows all over the town, cooled down the brutal summer heat. Streets were laid out neatly, on each sides stood elegant old style buildings and houses, which was why Savannah drew tourists. At intersections of streets there were garden-like squares, in which you would see people walking leisurely, or sitting on the benches chatting friendly, while feeding pigeons or squirrels. Everyday, colorful tour buses drove by with the speed of snails, some time even stopped for a while, let passionate tour guides to finish their fascinating stories. Old style coaches moved by now and then, also slowly, but those handsome horses would keep their paces brisk. The showy coach drivers in colonial costume occasionally took off hats, gently greeted to people with smiles. The crisp sound of horse hooves sometime could be heard from blocks away, made the town even quieter than it was.
