The Philadelphia Phillies Are Hot, Loose and Loving Life as One of the Best Teams in Baseball

The Philadelphia Phillies Are Hot, Loose and Loving Life as One of the Best Teams in Baseball

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Phillies are hot, that much is certain, with Bryce Harper and Zack Wheeler powering and pitching the team to the best record in baseball and a recent home winning streak that nearly matched the franchise record. Well, no team has been quite as alluring to the packed crowds at Citizens Bank Park as the Phillies. Just ask them. Brandon Marsh, the outfielder with the Rip Van Winkle whiskers, was mic’d up for an ESPN Sunday night game when he was relayed a fan question from social media by the broadcast booth: If you had to start a rock band, who would you take from the team and what’s the band name? Marsh rattled off catcher Garrett Stubbs, slugger Kyle Schwarber and outfielder Cristian Pache as his fellow band members, then as he hustled off the field after making a catch, blurted out the name that has since launched a blossoming business of the catchphrase T-shirts. Marsh said he has his own band shirt — which he has yet to reveal — …

Living and Loving in a Diverse Society

Living and Loving in a Diverse Society

North America has long been a melting pot of cultures as centuries of immigrants came to settle in the New World. But the attitude has long been that people should stick to their own kind, both in friendship and in romance. Certainly, there have always been those who fell in love across racial or ethnic boundaries, but it was long believed that such “mixed marriages” were doomed to failure. And thanks to the discrimination and ostracism these couples faced, this often became a self-fulfilling prophecy. In recent years, however, attitudes have changed, and society has become accepting of racial and ethnic diversity in neighborhoods, at work, among friends, and even between lovers. And with this change in social attitudes, more and more people are seeking relationships outside their own culture. That is, they view compatibility more in terms of personality than superficial features like skin color or ethnic group. Ways of Thinking About Diversity It appears that today’s youth are largely accepting of differences in race and ethnicity, especially in more urban areas. However, as …

Feeling Love in Loving Relationships

Feeling Love in Loving Relationships

We all know that love is a wonderful feeling, so wonderful that stories, poems, and songs have celebrated it throughout recorded history. We also know that feeling love had little to do with marriage for most of human history; marrying for love is a recent tradition. And we know too well that feelings of love decline in frequency (not importance), as they compete with other feelings in the routines and stresses of modern living. Daniel Kahneman’s famous distinction between feeling happy and a happy life holds for love as well. Feeling love, like feeling happy, is a momentary experience. The sense of a loving relationship, like the sense of a happy life, emerges from reflection on memories. More important, feelings of love run on autopilot, while judging your relationship to be loving requires reflection and effort. Because feelings of love occur without effort, we’re apt to misjudge that our relationships are not loving because they require effort. If we regard them as not loving, they certainly will become so. If you judge that your relationship …

On Valentine’s day, a new quantitative analysis calls for an emphasis on loving marriages, loving one’s children, and loving parent-teacher relationships as the key to student success

On Valentine’s day, a new quantitative analysis calls for an emphasis on loving marriages, loving one’s children, and loving parent-teacher relationships as the key to student success

LONG BEACH, Calif — A new article by a professor and researcher uses quantitative analysis to assert that the American education system can raise school quality and help students, especially in the inner city, far better than it currently does. In his article entitled, “A Meta-analysis:  The Association Between Relational Parental Involvement and Student and Parent Outcome Variables,” in Education & Urban Society, Dr. William Jeynes notes that the results emanate with a message straight out of the heart of Valentine’s day. That is, the results of his meta-analysis indicate that an emphasis on loving marriages, loving one’s children, and loving parent-teacher relationships is the key to student success. A meta-analysis statistically combines all the studies on a given topic to see what the overall body of research indicates. William Jeynes, a Harvard graduate and Professor at California State University, Long Beach, asserts that “Political leaders, academics, and people at large do not emphasize love enough in improving relations between parents, between parents and their children, and in partnerships between parents and teachers. The results …
