In another classic midseason Melrose Place two-parter, Amanda and Peter each notch a big career win through underhanded schemes against their enemies. OBVIOUSLY THESE TWO ARE MADE FOR EACH OTHER, which is why it's so frustrating that timing and circumstances (read: the writers) keep conspiring (read: contriving) to keep them from reconciling. For most of this episode, Taylor's not even to blame, because she's occupied with Kyle's shitty friend Nick...who happens to have noticed how much Taylor lights up when Peter comes to Kyle's and vaguely threatens to use this against her, since apparently Kyle hasn't spent any of their bro time together complaining about it. When Sydney pushes Sam to the brink of insanity, Billy seizes his moment to invite Sam to move in with him instead, just in time for Alison and Jake to have a huge fight, requiring Alison to bunk with the newly-cohabitant. Sydney, meanwhile, is still working on driving a wedge between Carter and Walter. Megan would probably LOVE to drive a wedge between Michael and Kimberly, but Kimberly is just better at convincing Michael that she needs him to be her hospice nurse, and maybe more.

Modern Washington has always offered up an impressive roster of toadies. Yet the Trump administration seems to have offered us a unique period of bowing and scraping.   Historically, sucking up takes a variety of forms, from pretty compliments to cloying flattery and outright treachery. But it doesn't stop there. The kind of sycophant we see from those in the GOP, combines other attributes like hypocrisy, lying, and manipulation.    Throughout history we've certainly seen our share of sycophants; from the courts of Caligula to Dickens' Uriah Heep.    We certainly get to see a lot of this in Mark Leibovich's new book Thank You For Your Servitude    My conversation with Mark Leibovich:

Other favorite ideas/themes include female seperatism, evangelical Christianity, bisexuaity particularly in period settings, gender complementarianism, women in male-dominated spaces (gaming, cosplay), and the exploitation of women's bodies for media such as reality television and true crime podcasts. Almost 100 of her plays have been performed or read across the country including her twisty sci-fi play, The Consciousness, which has been performed at over 10 fringe festivals across the country and won Best Play at the Tampa Bay Theatre Festival (director: Liz Colvert, stage manager: Meghan Pratt).

It's Friday afternoon, the clock is ticking, and your fingers are jumping from one key to the other. You're working furiously, your five o'clock deadline is nearing, and the weekend is just around the corner. But you've still got so much to do and less than an hour to finish. You silently curse yourself for not starting sooner. So, what happened? How did you end up running out of time? Well, there were hours you spent scrolling through social media, your multiple coffee breaks, re-reading emails, and completing tasks that you could've started later. Procrastination haunts all of us. We're all guilty of procrastinating and saying, 'I'll do it later,' or 'I'll start in a while.' But the negative impacts of procrastinating can steal dreams, cause missed opportunities, and even destroy lives. Some people are lucky enough to pinpoint their tendency to procrastinate and how much it holds them back. Let's discuss how procrastination can wreck your dreams and how you can combat it. The Origins of the Procrastination is the Thief of Time Often, Charles Dickens gets the credit for coining the term 'procrastination is the thief of time.' However, the truth is that Dickens popularized the proverb by putting it into the mouth of Mr. Micawber. In 1850, Mr. Micawber said, 'My advice is, never do tomorrow what you can do today. Procrastination is the thief of time.' While Mr. Micawber became a widely quoted character for pronouncing the proverb' procrastination is the thief of time,' he was hardly original. In reality, the phrase is an adage created by English writer Edward Young. Young wrote a 10,000-line poem known as 'The Complaint' or 'Night-Thoughts on Life, Death, and Immortality or simply 'Night-Thoughts.' In this extensive poem, the poet muses over death over the courses of nine' nights,' i.e., nine sections. Young's use of the proverb 'procrastination is the thief of time' goes beyond caution against putting things off. Instead, the poet suggests that time wasted procrastinating one thing is time wasted doing nothing of any consequence. It goes to say that if we delay filling our taxes by arranging our spices alphabetically, the fact remains that we should have done something of far more importance. How Does the Proverb Describe 'Procrastination'? Edward Young describes a procrastinator as someone who procrastinates in doing things at the right time and finds themselves in situations where they had little time to complete the task. Typically, people procrastinate because: • The task is long and complicated. • The activity is tedious and not important. • They prefer doing their pleasurable activities. • They have a careless attitude and believe that nothing wrong will happen if they miss their deadline. • They are over-confident and think that they have enough time/competency to complete the task. • They do it as a result of peer pressure and fear mockery or ridicule if they hand in work early. • They do it due to pure laziness. Why is Procrastination the Thief of Time? 'Procrastination,' deferring a task or putting something off, is the 'thief of time' because you waste time by delaying tasks. This hypothesis potentially embraces two meanings: you are wasting time when you could have accomplished what you need to achieve. And that all procrastination is time-wasting. Let's discuss the top common examples of procrastination: • Someone who spends several days thinking about starting an essential assignment, thus they have to rush to finish work in a hasty and stressful manner. • A person who wastes months before approaching the person they're romantically interested in, thus missing their chance to enter a relationship with them. • Someone who wastes years before starting a project they're passionate about, thus struggling with guilt and shame. • A student who wastes the whole year not studying. According to an insightful study, up to 95% of all people procrastinate to some degree. And with approximately 25% of adults considering procrastination as a defining personality trait, it's no wonder it can be a thief of time that causes various other issues. Another study encompassing over 22,000 employees found that workers in different jobs have different procrastinating habits: ● High Procrastination Jobs- Legal secretaries, library assistants, food servers, sales representatives, and customer service administrators tend to procrastinate the most ● Moderate Procrastination Jobs- Photographers, lawyers, general operation managers, and creative writers often procrastinate ● Low Procrastination Jobs- Chief executives, loan officers, librarians, and economists procrastinate the least Why is Procrastination Bad? Let's take a Closer Look at the Downsides. Procrastination can lead to you missing out on incredible opportunities due to temporary enjoyment. In general, procrastination affects some sectors of your life, such as: • Employment and financial issues • Interpersonal issues • Reduced wellbeing • Worsening of mental and physical health • Delay in getting help • Increased future procrastination • Academic issues Now let's discuss the negative side-effects of procrastination. It can cause: Loss of Time Procrastination makes you realize that you've lost valuable time you could've spent chasing your dreams and achieving your goals. What about Lost Opportunities? Every person I know regretted not taking advantage of an opportunity when it was relevant. In most cases, the underlying cause is procrastination. And the harsh truth is that most opportunities only come by once. Putting Off What Needs to be Done Likely Results in a Poor Product Some people believe that procrastinating motivates them to perform the best. Although it is true for some people, it isn't always the outcome. Completing your essential project at the last minute will probably cause poorer results. What about You Adding Tasks to Other People's Workload No one enjoys getting extra work dumped on them due to another employee's failures. It results in resentment, adds to an employee's workload, and even causes feelings of anxiety. Let's discuss some ways you can stop procrastinating: 1. Make your environment clutter-free and remove distractions to increase your productivity. 2. Arrange some immediate reward you'll receive when you manage to start work. 3. Identify the steps you can take to get started. 4. Figure out what's causing you to procrastinate, think through the causes, and work to resolve them. 5. Keep a prioritized to-do list to avoid forgetting important tasks. 6. Tackle the most challenging task during peak productivity hours. The Bottom Line Procrastination can lead to various academic, employment, financial, and interpersonal issues. Not just this, but procrastination can cause decreased wellbeing, worsen mental health, and make it difficult for you to get appropriate help. Avoid procrastinating and be proactive.

It's Friday afternoon, the clock is ticking, and your fingers are jumping from one key to the other. You're working furiously, your five o'clock deadline is nearing, and the weekend is just around the corner. But you've still got so much to do and less than an hour to finish. You silently curse yourself for not starting sooner. So, what happened? How did you end up running out of time? Well, there were hours you spent scrolling through social media, your multiple coffee breaks, re-reading emails, and completing tasks that you could've started later. Procrastination haunts all of us. We're all guilty of procrastinating and saying, 'I'll do it later,' or 'I'll start in a while.' But the negative impacts of procrastinating can steal dreams, cause missed opportunities, and even destroy lives. Some people are lucky enough to pinpoint their tendency to procrastinate and how much it holds them back. Let's discuss how procrastination can wreck your dreams and how you can combat it. The Origins of the Procrastination is the Thief of Time Often, Charles Dickens gets the credit for coining the term 'procrastination is the thief of time.' However, the truth is that Dickens popularized the proverb by putting it into the mouth of Mr. Micawber. In 1850, Mr. Micawber said, 'My advice is, never do tomorrow what you can do today. Procrastination is the thief of time.' While Mr. Micawber became a widely quoted character for pronouncing the proverb' procrastination is the thief of time,' he was hardly original. In reality, the phrase is an adage created by English writer Edward Young. Young wrote a 10,000-line poem known as 'The Complaint' or 'Night-Thoughts on Life, Death, and Immortality or simply 'Night-Thoughts.' In this extensive poem, the poet muses over death over the courses of nine' nights,' i.e., nine sections. Young's use of the proverb 'procrastination is the thief of time' goes beyond caution against putting things off. Instead, the poet suggests that time wasted procrastinating one thing is time wasted doing nothing of any consequence. It goes to say that if we delay filling our taxes by arranging our spices alphabetically, the fact remains that we should have done something of far more importance. How Does the Proverb Describe 'Procrastination'? Edward Young describes a procrastinator as someone who procrastinates in doing things at the right time and finds themselves in situations where they had little time to complete the task. Typically, people procrastinate because: • The task is long and complicated. • The activity is tedious and not important. • They prefer doing their pleasurable activities. • They have a careless attitude and believe that nothing wrong will happen if they miss their deadline. • They are over-confident and think that they have enough time/competency to complete the task. • They do it as a result of peer pressure and fear mockery or ridicule if they hand in work early. • They do it due to pure laziness. Why is Procrastination the Thief of Time? 'Procrastination,' deferring a task or putting something off, is the 'thief of time' because you waste time by delaying tasks. This hypothesis potentially embraces two meanings: you are wasting time when you could have accomplished what you need to achieve. And that all procrastination is time-wasting. Let's discuss the top common examples of procrastination: • Someone who spends several days thinking about starting an essential assignment, thus they have to rush to finish work in a hasty and stressful manner. • A person who wastes months before approaching the person they're romantically interested in, thus missing their chance to enter a relationship with them. • Someone who wastes years before starting a project they're passionate about, thus struggling with guilt and shame. • A student who wastes the whole year not studying. According to an insightful study, up to 95% of all people procrastinate to some degree. And with approximately 25% of adults considering procrastination as a defining personality trait, it's no wonder it can be a thief of time that causes various other issues. Another study encompassing over 22,000 employees found that workers in different jobs have different procrastinating habits: ● High Procrastination Jobs- Legal secretaries, library assistants, food servers, sales representatives, and customer service administrators tend to procrastinate the most ● Moderate Procrastination Jobs- Photographers, lawyers, general operation managers, and creative writers often procrastinate ● Low Procrastination Jobs- Chief executives, loan officers, librarians, and economists procrastinate the least Why is Procrastination Bad? Let's take a Closer Look at the Downsides. Procrastination can lead to you missing out on incredible opportunities due to temporary enjoyment. In general, procrastination affects some sectors of your life, such as: • Employment and financial issues • Interpersonal issues • Reduced wellbeing • Worsening of mental and physical health • Delay in getting help • Increased future procrastination • Academic issues Now let's discuss the negative side-effects of procrastination. It can cause: Loss of Time Procrastination makes you realize that you've lost valuable time you could've spent chasing your dreams and achieving your goals. What about Lost Opportunities? Every person I know regretted not taking advantage of an opportunity when it was relevant. In most cases, the underlying cause is procrastination. And the harsh truth is that most opportunities only come by once. Putting Off What Needs to be Done Likely Results in a Poor Product Some people believe that procrastinating motivates them to perform the best. Although it is true for some people, it isn't always the outcome. Completing your essential project at the last minute will probably cause poorer results. What about You Adding Tasks to Other People's Workload No one enjoys getting extra work dumped on them due to another employee's failures.

Author Nancy Churnin discusses the power of having a pen, paper, and something to say. Dear Mr. Dickens, 2021 National Jewish Book Award winner for children's picture book. In Eliza Davis's day, Charles Dickens was the most celebrated living writer in England. But some of his books reflected a prejudice that was all too common at the time: prejudice against Jewish people. Eliza was Jewish, and her heart hurt to see a Jewish character in Oliver Twist portrayed as ugly and selfish. She wanted to speak out about how unfair that was, even if it meant speaking out against the great man himself. So she wrote a letter to Charles Dickens. What happened next is history. Nancy Churnin is the author of Dear Mr. Dickens, the 2021 National Jewish Book Award children's picture book winner and 2022 Sydney Taylor Honor winner; A Queen to the Rescue, the Story of Henrietta Szold, Founder of Hadassah, a 2022 Sydney Taylor Notable and many more picture books about people who persevered to achieve their dreams and make the world a better place. Among her honors: Junior Library Guild selections, starred reviews, National Council for the Social Studies Notables, Silver Eureka Awards, Mighty Girl lists, Sydney Taylor Notables, Notable Book for a Global Society, Anne Izard Storytellers Choice Award and the South Asia Book Award. A native New Yorker, Nancy now lives in North Texas with her family, which includes a dog named Dog and two cantankerous cats.

In 1859 Charles Dickens wrote "A Tale of Two Cities" about the French Revolution of the late 1700's. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. If you lived anywhere near London or Paris, you knew what that meant. The world was filled with turmoil, different classes, and unpredictability. Dickens notes that it is always like that in every culture, and often within most people. Most people fight the power of both darkness and light, hope and despair, on an ongoing basis. Did you know it should not be that way with Christians? God did something that changed everything. One day disciples are in a house crying and hopeless. Shortly after they are in a house standing up in confidence and joy. What made the difference? And how can that difference live in your life? The resurrection of Jesus won't due as a part of the Christian's life. It must become the centerpiece of your life. Jesus defeat of death changed everything forever. It should change you.You can live in a world of duality and uncertainly, but do so with confidence and joy. This can bring immeasurable peace to your life but also may draw other people to Jesus Christ!- Has a generation ever existed that was stable, predictable, just and fair?- So why are we often so surprised when we see that ours is no different?- More importantly, what does it say about us if that same duality exists in us?- What has God done to change things forever and add eternal peace to your life?- How does the resurrection infuse your present life with purpose and direction?

Taking its inspiration from Great Expectations, Furnace Creek (Eyewear Publishing, 2021) teases us with the question of what Pip might have been like had he grown up in the American South of the 1960s and 1970s and faced the explosive social issues--racial injustice, a war abroad, women's and gay rights, class struggle--that galvanized the world in those decades. A guilty encounter with an escaped felon, a summer spent working for an eccentric man with a mysterious past, conflicted erotic feelings for his employer's niece and nephew--these events set the stage for a journey of sexual and moral discovery that takes Newt Seward to New England, Rome, and Paris--all before returning home to confront his life's many expectations and disappointments. Deftly combining elements of coming-of-age story, novel of erotic discovery, Southern Gothic fiction, and detection-mystery thriller, Furnace Creek leaps the frame of Dickens' masterpiece to provide a contemporary meditation on the perils of desire, ambition, love, loss, and family.

Very few novelists can match the ambition or output of French novelist Honoré de Balzac (1799-1850). A pioneer of the great nineteenth-century "realism" tradition, his novel sequence La Comédie Humaine presents a panoramic view of post-Napoleonic France. Containing something like 90 finished novels and novellas, Balzac's achievement has influenced writers like Hugo, Dickens, Flaubert, and Henry James. In this episode, Jacke talks to contemporary novelist Carlos Allende (Coffee, Shopping, Murder, Love) about his love for Balzac and his works.
