How Social Media Can Help You Escape The Feeling Of Loneliness

Loneliness isn’t just an emotion or an ever-changing mood. Loneliness is a state of mind that can cause harm both to psychological and physical health. Previously, loneliness has been associated with objective social isolation, depression, introversion, or poor social skills.

The Billionaire’s Unexpected Wife

As soon as I saw her, I knew I had to have her. I thought this Vegas fundraiser was going to be boring—another obligation to keep the family business alive. I don’t remember a thing about the night we spent together, other than how good she felt against me, like she was made for me.

Combat & Classics Ep. 69 Homer’s “Iliad” Book 11

[Yell-y war voice] "CARNAGE ON THE BATTLEFIELD!!!!" Our opening question from Jeff is "can we spoil the Iliad?" We try to understand what's going on with the story in terms of the hierarchy of Greek heroes on the battlefield and who the "good guys" and the "bad guys" are.

It’s in this context that we find the beautiful story of the Nativity, in both its Jewish and Greco-Roman settings.

Deion Ex Machina

It doesn’t happen in real life. When it happens in a movie, people roll their eyes.
