A La Carte (8/18)

Neither Boys Nor Men - Darrin Patrick shares a couple of ugly statistics in this article. Like this one: “Half of American males between the ages of 18 to 34 play video games every day—for almost 3 hours.”

Mischief in Manhattan - This is an interesting article on the proposed mosque in NYC. It is written by a couple of Canadian Muslims. “When we try to understand the reasoning behind building a mosque at the epicentre of the worst-ever attack on the U.S., we wonder why its proponents don’t build a monument to those who died in the attack?”

Getting Things Done - Matt Perman has some interesting things to say on how David Allen’s Getting Things Done can be improved.

On the Virtue of Wasting Time - Carl Truemen talks about the spiritual benefit of wasting time.

The Power - The Power is the next book from Rhonda Byrne whose book The Secret was massively popular and massively stupid (all about the New Age Law of Attraction). Check out this trailer for the new book. If this isn’t catering to itchy ears, I don’t know what is.
