Dating apps are totally out of control. And, we only have tech bros to blame. As an online dater, I've had enough of the never-ending barrage of new, gimmicky dating apps from the tech world. For the love of all that is swipe-able, please make it stop. SEE ALSO: The New Language of Dating, Analyzed Currently, not a single week goes by without the launch of a supposedly quirky dating app claiming to offer something revolutionary and never-before-achieved by the world of online daters. In the past few months alone, we've seen the release of a "slow" dating app which makes you seduce matches through the art of conversation before you get to see their profile pic. Read more...

Yet in many ways, doesnt he feel something like an updated version of that figure or perhaps of Nero who so famously fiddled actually, according to historian Mary Beard in her book SPQR , played the lyre while Rome burned? Fortunately, unlike every psychiatrist in town, Im not bound by the Goldwater Rule , which prohibits a diagnosis of a public figure you havent personally examined. While I have no expertise in whether Donald Trump has a narcissistic personality disorder, I see no reason not to say the obvious: hes a distinctly disturbed individual. That he was nonetheless elected president tells us a good deal about where we are as a country today. As Tony Schwartz, who actually wrote his bestselling book The Art of the Deal , put it recently, Trump was equally clear with me that he didnt value nor even necessarily recognize the qualities that tend to emerge as people grow more secure, such as empathy, generosity, reflectiveness, the capacity to delay gratification or, above all, a conscience, an inner sense of right and wrong.

(CANNES, France) The Cannes Film Festival awarded its coveted Palme d'Or award to Ruben Ostlund's Swedish comedy The Square on Sunday, while Sofia Coppola became only the second woman to win the best director award. Oh my god! OK, the Swedish filmmaker exclaimed after he bounded onto the stage to collect the prestigious Palme, in a rare and somewhat surprising win for a comedy. In The Square, Claes Bang plays a museum director whose manicured life begins to unravel after a series of events that upset his, and the museum's, calm equilibrium. The movie's title comes from an art installation that Bang's character is prepping, which invites anyone who enters a small square to be kind and generous. The film's satire and exploration of moral dilemmas culminated in one of the festival's most eye-catching scenes.

I'm not going to sit here and speculate about that. The truth is, there's not much you can do, is there? I think in politics positions quickly become unsustainable. We have seen in the last few days - and you highlighted this in your interview with her - that this is not a Prime Minister who is very good at holding position when she feels it's under pressure. She's a Prime Minister who has seemed to perfect the art of the U-turn

Housing communities have various stipulations owner's must adhere to. On a recent trip, I asked a friend why every single house was the same color. The rules, they said, were to ensure no one painted their house a bright, or unsightly color. Cars are not allowed on the streets, nor in the driveway, but must be parked in the garages overnight. Lawns must maintain a similar aesthetic from house to house. The list surely goes on. I felt like I was seeing black and white. The lack of differentiation disturbed me. I am the type of person who, when I travel, the first thing that enchants me are colors. Brightly-colored murals painted on the side of buildings throughout a city make me happy art is being reimagined from the controversial graffiti to the now well-respected colors swallowing brick and cinderblock. A place can look run-down, or it can look gentrified, but they both hold stigmas.
