Lee December 2, 6: Jayden has become the most popular name for baby boys, with male newborns given that name in , according to an announcement made by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene on Wednesday. It has surpassed perennial classics like Daniel, Michael, Matthew and David, which collectively round out the top five. Unlike girls names — Lisa, Jennifer, Madison and Ashley have risen and fallen within decades — the top boys names tend to be timeless, with Biblical or kingly flavors. Nationwide, Jayden ranked only 11th last year, according to Social Security Administration data — respectable, but not a blockbuster. For whatever reason, Jayden is popular with minority groups. Hispanics, specifically, seemed to have embraced the name with fervor.

Sherry Turkle echoes Rushkoff in Alone Together: There is no doubt that social media has impacted communication practices, and an investigation of this impact is paramount if we are to comprehend human interaction in contemporary culture and society.
However, scholars must be careful not to make general speculations that are situated outside of historical context.

It is also appropriate to assume that the majority of people now communicate via social media.

My parents are Nigerian immigrants, which makes me Nigerian-American. Most of the people in my hometown are Caucasian and most of my college friends in Urbana-Champaign, where our university is located, are white or Asian. That being said, I rarely think about my race. There are times when I do think about my culture, like when I attempt to cook Nigerian food for my roommates. But I never really think about how my skin color is vividly different from most people around me.
Once I boarded the plane to Turkey, I was so preoccupied with finding Africans to interview for my articles on Nigerians in Turkey, I never really thought much more about how I would come across to Turkish people.
Daniel Jones, editor of The New York Times’ Modern Love column, will read and sign copies of his book, “Love Illuminated,” at the Ann Arbor District Library.
On record, he denies ever being “violent” with both women, though he did step down from business following Lumet’s guest column for The Hollywood Reporter. In the New York Times piece, four women go on record, with three accusing Simmons of rape. Former Def Jam exec Drew Dixon says Simmons raped her in at his downtown Manhattan apartment, and quit the label soon after. In , after being invited to a party at his Manhattan apartment, Sallie arrived and was the only person there with Simmons.
After allegedly leading them to a room, Simmons began running a bath, pushed Moore against a column, and had his “hands all over my body, up and down… I felt assaulted. In the Los Angeles Times piece, five additional women accuse Simmons of sexual misconduct. After taking her to a hot yoga class in , How to Be a Player actress Natashia Williams-Blach says the entrepreneur tried to force her to perform oral sex on him.
It was just a few seconds. She first spoke about the alleged incident in an Instagram video posted December 1. Additionally, according to former general manager Karen Russell — who worked at Simmons’ yoga studio Tantris in Los Angeles — the mogul used his position of power to pursue women. She says a teacher not included in the list of five once complained that Simmons was aggressively courting her despite the fact she had a boyfriend.
Reportedly, another instructor — who did not want to be named — ended up leaving earlier this year because of Simmons’ controlling nature, and the way Tantris sexualized women. Manager Karen ended up quitting in February due to Simmons’ harsh demands. These horrific accusations have shocked me to my core and all of my relations have been consensual.
Long ago when I went to college, campuses were about 70 percent male, and until it was still nearly 60 percent. Today, however, the male percentage has fallen to the low 40s on most campuses.

The New York Times has received several complaints about the column, one being reader Alia Hannah Habib’s that “this bump in the road is presented as part of the bride’s journey toward spiritual happiness and a deeper understanding of her destiny.”.
While people have been finding love online since the earliest days of the internet, through newsgroups, chat rooms, games and other online communities, the meteoric development of the commercial dating industry has brought millions of paying users and mainstream exposure to the activity. Two nights ago at a party, I ran into a friend of a friend and her new Internet-acquired boyfriend, who are the next step in the chain reaction started by Sascha and Leontine.
My thanks to Sascha for being so open about looking for love in cyberspace. May we all be so lucky. Online dating has not always had the best reputation. When online dating activity was observed in the mid s, some attention focused on the ease with which people could deceive others. One article in the St.

Now she’s following the presidential candidate around the country. The New York Times reporter was a member of both Clinton and Barack Obama’s traveling press in and is back on the Clinton beat this election cycle. Chozick’s byline now appears regularly on the Times front page, but the Texas native knew almost nothing about politics when she started covering Clinton.

Instead we have breakfast at 7am, and affairs we try to forget as quickly as possible. Self-protection and closing the deal are paramount. Cupid has flown the coop. How the hell did we get into this mess? As this was made back in the bleeding cutting edge of , Tinder could not be blamed here. The article never says it but the story here is less about Tinder and more about how awful it is to date in New York City — not, you might think, exactly an uncovered issue.
At the risk of indulging in the kind of generalisations of which Carrie Bradshaw was so fond, New York dating is a weird mix of frenetic meet-ups and Edith Wharton-like formalised unions of those from similar backgrounds. But seeing as I lived there before Tinder even existed I, like Carrie Bradshaw, could not blame the dating app for any of them. Here’s the sordid truth. Add in the twist of dating formats altering between generations, and you have a guaranteed reaction of incomprehension topped with hypocrisy.
To hear former liberals of the 80s and 90s, let alone the 60s, tut-tutting over dating apps is to hear the sweet, sweet sound of self-delusion and selective amnesia. Intriguingly, the article seems utterly unconcerned about Grindr, the dating app for gay men — only heterosexuals, especially women, are at risk of moral degradation, apparently.

Getty At Least She’s Fashionable! President Donald Trump’s eldest daughter entered the White House back in January with a bushel of big promises, including helping “working women,” but writer Lindy West’s piece calls bullshit, as Ivanka has yet to put her money where her mouth is — and likely never will. To put it frankly, the column basically summed up why Ivanka sucks, which “The Daily Show” gleefully pointed out as well last week. View Story “Ivanka Trump is never going to come through,” West wrote.
She is more a logo than a person, a scarecrow stuffed with branding, an heiress-turned-model-turned-multimillionaire’s-wife playacting as an authority on the challenges facing working women so that she can sell more pastel sheath dresses. West maintained that Ivanka has pretended “to care about women’s upward mobility just enough to soothe the complacent and provide plausible deniability for her father,” who — as West stated — “is a stubborn, intractable toddler.
Trump’s supposed moderating effects and passion for progressive causes is her word. And, unfortunately for the entire planet, the word of a Trump isn’t worth very much. A real advocate for women would care about gay women, trans women, black women, Muslim women, Jewish women and all the other women being dehumanized and imperiled by Trumpism’s fetish for calamity.
If you are helping only certain women, then you do not actually care about women. The Trump Doctrine is to say whatever makes you feel good and do whatever makes you the most money. Trump isn’t anomalous; she’s emblematic. Don’t waste your time parsing what they say; spend it fighting what they do.

Today I woke up cocooned in my comforter, yet still chilly. I looked out of my window at the stale October gloom and almost began to miss summer. I caught myself in time to remember what we often forget when we romanticize seasons, forgetting their hidden wraths because we do not endure them in the present time. I remembered consecutive weeks so sweltering that I was endlessly caught between the lesser of two hells: I remembered my unlucky penchant for always stepping into that single No.
So this morning, when the autumnal chill impelled me to draw my bare legs closer to my chest and pull an extra blanket around my shoulders, I almost — almost — longed for summer.
