Home Insync Pulse Pulse oi-Staff By Staff on June 2, 2009 The angry young man of bollywood in the 1980s-Amitabh Bachchan has turned down an honorary doctorate from an Australian university. This act is an expression of his anger at the recent spate of attacks on Indian students studying there. Bachchan said he could not bring himself to go for celebration in a country, which has witnessed horrific acts against his own countrymen.

I had just finished giving a lecture on sex to 600 students at a major West Coast university. As I was gathering my notes, I looked down from the stage, and there were two students in front of me who were holding hands. The young woman said, “I can’t thank you enough for your talk. It’s going to make a big difference in my sex life.” And her male partner said, “Me too.” I thanked them for thanking me. Then I asked how it was going to make a difference. She said she has always thought there was something wrong with her because she isn’t able to become sexually aroused as soon as her male partners. It struck a meaningful chord when I had explained that sex educators and sex therapists used to tell women it can take up to 20 minutes or more of kissing, caressing, and fooling around with a partner before they were ready to have intercourse. (I told them we used to call this “foreplay.” ) This young woman said she … [Read more...] about The Day that Foreplay Died
One of the myths that exists about the importance of humor in our lives is that it contributes to physical and mental health. This is embodied in our culture with phrases such as "Laughter is the best medicine". While there are quite a few studies that show the importance of humor for our mental health, findings regarding the influence of humor and laughter on our physical health are scarce. One common misconception is that humor leads to a longer life, but in fact, there are no studies supporting this notion. In contrast, the few studies that do exist show that people who are considered to be funny actually suffer more health problems and die at a younger age. For example, one longitudinal study, the Terman life-cycle study, followed a large number of highly gifted individuals (average IQ of 151!) over many decades, and found that those who were rated as having a better sense of humor as children by their parents and teachers were more likely to suffer from many health problems later … [Read more...] about Comedians, Athletes and Performers Die Younger
Source: Glenn Beltz/Flickr Some kids worry a lot about death, whether or not they’ve lost someone close. For some, the worry trigger is a story. For others, it’s seeing a cemetery, or hearing family members talk about a death. For others, it’s the much more obviously troubling experience of losing someone they love, or a family pet. Regardless of the circumstances, parents can help their children handle the worries so they don’t become overwhelming. What can parents do to soothe death-related anxieties? Take it seriously. Be present and available when your child talks about death. Put down your phone. Stop unloading the dishwasher. Behave as if your child’s thoughts or worries on this topic matter to you. Be calm and reassuring. Don’t act worried about your child’s mental health. They need you to be the adult here, the strong person in charge who will keep them safe. Affirm the hard reality. Don’t sugar-coat the facts, but instead … [Read more...] about Young Children and the Fear of Death
