(1) Simple Rules for Healthy Eating

(2) Posture affects standing and not just the physical kind

(3) Helping fliers avoid change fees for a modest fee

(4) To fall in love with anyone, do this

(5) Len E. in NC: Saw Chasing Rainbows. First act was a boring disaster. Thought I was watching a high school show.  It will never make it on Broadway. Also saw Youth rated by Cranke as the best movie of 2015. It was totally incomprehensible and unentertaining ( if there is such a word). Want to see good movies? Go see Brooklyn, Trumbo and The Big Short.

Note: I agree with Len about BROOKLYN and TRUMBO. We disagree about CHASING RAINBOWS. I loved it!

(6) 15 ways to be a better person in 2016

(7) Single, and Surrounded by a Wall of Men

(8) Arlene D. in PA: Re: sales staff that lunge at you when you enter a store, I prefer  “My name is _____I’ll be ______(location) if you need assistance with anything. Thanks for coming in.” I would be shocked if a sales person approached me that way.

(9) Natalie K. in PA:  We saw The Big Short today.  Ivan enjoyed it a great deal.  I hated it.  Didn’t understand it and thought it was poorly made.

(10) Ivan W. in PA: I know Nat wrote to you about The Big Short and she hated it. I, on the other hand, had a different opinion. The movies was very technical and talky. However, if you were following the mortgage balloon and the almost worthless mortgages that were part of bonds sold you would have some understanding of what was going on. It was a history of the few people who discovered what was going with the illegality and rating agencies’ for sale ratings. The movie gave a very good explanation of the house of cards that was built, complete with examples from Anthony Bourdain and Las Vegas gamblers. I found it tremendously intellectually stimulating. So, your enjoyment of it would depend on what kind of movie you enjoy.

(11) Older students learn for the sake of learning

(12) Think seriously about spending for play
