Sexperts: Nanci Kavich

Interview with Nanci Kavich, the co-founder of Profile Wingman (profilewingman.com). “I help people write their online dating profiles and to navigate the world of on- and offline dating in general. It’s so hard to make yourself three-dimensional and have your personality come through and attract the person you want to attract...that’s where we come in.”

What books or websites would you recommend to people interested in cultivating healthy relationships and intimacy?
I have a blog kind of about every topic, which I send my clients to often depending on what they’re struggling with. Everybody has their own issues or baggage, or things that are holding them back, so there’s not one book or one website to help everybody. But…

Sexperts: Kristen Lilla

Interview with Kristen Lilla, MSW, LCSW, CST, one of only four certified sex therapists in Nebraska. Lilla is in private practice at Omaha Sex Therapy, where she provides therapy services to both individuals and couples. 

What books or websites would you recommend to people interested in cultivating healthy relationships and intimacy?
One that is really great is ‘Mating in Captivity’ by Esther Perel. It’s basically about how you keep the intimacy alive in a long-term relationship, and I think that’s something that a lot of relationships struggle with. 
Another one is ‘Rekindling Desire’ by Barry McCarthy and Emily McCarthy. It’s along the same lines: In a long-term relationship when you kind of lose that spark, how do you…

What books or websites would you recommend to people interested in cultivating healthy relationships and intimacy?
If I had to boil it down to one, ‘The Good Marriage: How And Why Love Lasts’ by Judith Wallerstein and Sandra Blakeslee. My reading list for my students is like 250 books long, but most of them are more geared toward theology, specifically…

<p>For a while, the Internet will be a dangerous place.</p>The age of harassment

We are now in what future historian will call the Age of Harrassment. This will be looked at as a time when the explosive growth of social networking and online communications, coupled with primitive moderation technology, joined forces to create a toxic online environment. This is a world of online culture wars, where people who disagree make use of the new technology to bully, badger, belittle, and threaten those they disagree with. And, most often, it is the people who benefit from the way things are trying to silence those who suffer from it.

These online skirmishes have, and will continue to, become deadly. Those who are bullied have and will continue to take their lives. Those who are targeted…

Good Vibrations — the Cure for Hysteria

Just over 100 years ago, the most common cause for a woman to visit her family physician was a bad case of hysteria, a scourge once common in the 1800s that struck women of child-bearing years, married or single, young or old. Hysteria was officially a female illness and by the 1890s, these patients comprised a significant proportion of many a physician’s practice.

Most of us understand the word “hysterical” in its more modern sense. We take it to mean the idea of something uncontrollably funny or absurd or emotional to the extent of upset. That’s only the recent connotation.

Literally translated from the Latin, hysteria means “out of the uterus.” For centuries, medically speaking, hysteria meant “womb disease.” As…

On the Road to Nowhere

The era of the automobile is about to end. Within 15 years, 95 percent of the cars on the road will be gone, replaced by self-driven options. Cities will be finned with tiny, self-directed electric vehicles, some just bog enough for one person, that can be summoned from a cell phone and will drive commuters to their destination for just pennies. The sort of cargo that trucks used to drive across the country will, instead, drive itself, commuting thousands of miles without a single person involved. Packages will be delivered by self-directed drones, which will buzz around in the air around us, moving gifts, books, online orders, and even groceries from door to door.

Millions of jobs will cease to…
