So why does he stay? ByCheryl Strayed and Steve Almond May 29, 2018 Dear Sugars, I’m a 22-year-old man who is soon graduating university. I have a job lined up, I’m creatively fulfilled, healthy, physically fit, and I’m surrounded by friends and family who are supportive of me. I’ve been in a relationship for the past 18 months with a woman who was my best friend for a few years before we began dating. We come from completely different cultural and religious backgrounds, but we’ve agreed to work through our differences together. I’m totally in love with her, but there’s one problem: For some time now, I’ve felt unimportant and excruciatingly lonely. I’m not being treated the way I want to be … [Read more...] about My Relationship Makes Me Feel Excruciatingly Lonely. But I Love Her!

Kristen Jordan Shamus Detroit Free Press Published 7:03 p.m. UTC May 27, 2018 Christopher Larime goes out to lunch most days, often with co-workers from the General Motors Tech Center in Warren. The father of three said he ate in March at the Buffalo Wild Wings across Mound Road from his office. It's the same restaurant where a food worker was later found to have hepatitis A. Larime is one of 837 people sickened with the virus in Michigan since August 2016. It has killed 27 people in the state, which remains in the throes of the biggest hepatitis A outbreak in the country. As of May 23, hardest hit are Macomb County, with 220 cases; the City of Detroit, with 170; Wayne County, with 144, and Oakland County, with 114 cases.

ByCheryl Strayed and Steve Almond May 22, 2018 Dear Sugars, Three years ago, I broke up with my lover of 10 years after he largely ignored my existence and stopped sleeping with me. By then I’d figured out that he had acute dyslexia and Asperger’s, and I’d accepted that he wouldn’t eat with me or go out to movies with me, but great sex had kept us together. Without it, there wasn’t much left, so when he continued to show no sexual interest in me for several months, we broke up. I’m now 70; he’s 62. Since our split, we’ve at last become good friends. He never uses the offensive tone he sometimes used when we were lovers. He brings me … [Read more...] about I’m 70, and I Want to Still Want Sex
By The Washington Post | PUBLISHED: May 13, 2018 at 11:30 am | UPDATED: May 14, 2018 at 4:11 am By Jenna Johnson | Washington Post The top leadership of the Department of Veterans Affairs is in turmoil, after President Donald Trump ousted his first secretary and nominated his personal doctor, who dropped out of consideration amid controversy. Trump has yet to nominate anyone else. It’s not an easy job to fill, as the VA is second in size to only the Defense Department and has more than 375,000 employees and a budget of more than $185 billion. And the new secretary will face pressure to further reduce the time it takes for patients to get appointments, grow the medical staff and improve its services. VA officials say that they have already made dramatic improvements and that the medical care now provided is as good as if not better than what’s offered by private hospitals. As part of an ongoing series, The Washington Post dispatched reporters across the country to talk … [Read more...] about ‘The VA is not nearly fixed’: Veterans explain what they want from agency’s next leader
Jamie Dimon is arguably the best-known banker in the U.S. He's been front and center for many of the major financial events of the last two decades, among them the financial crisis of 2008. He had taken the helm at JP Morgan Chase just four years prior. Described by The New York Times as "America's Least-Hated Banker" in 2010, which may be damning with faint praise, Dimon has emerged relatively unscathed, even as his company paid a $13 billion fine for its part in the 2008 crash. Dimon sat down with CBS News' Jeff Glor for a wide-ranging interview on Wednesday, as JP Morgan Chase prepared to launch 70 brand new locations in the Washington, D.C. area, which the company is touting as a major jobs achievement. It comes in a year where tax reform is seen by many as having handed a gift to the executive class in America. How does Dimon see it? JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon says recession is coming, but not soon "I don't think it's gone to executives, per se," said Dimon "Over … [Read more...] about Jamie Dimon: “I don’t think I’m suited” to the presidency
