New Beginnings

We’re one week into 2018, and I have a question: How many of your New Year’s Resolutions have you broken already? Did your promise to go to the gym every day turn into one trip before you gave up because it was too hard or too crowded? Were you going to end a bad habit but have already gone back to it? How long did your diet last? If you haven’t managed to keep any of your resolutions, don’t feel bad. You’re only human, and the problem with picking an arbitrary start for things like this is that we’re not

Rebuilding

Back in September, Hurricane Maria slammed into Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guadeloupe, and parts of the U.S. itself, killing hundreds if not thousands of people, doing billions of dollars in damage, and devastating the places it hit, particularly Puerto Rico. As of now, three months later, parts of the island are still without power, there are outbreaks of disease due to insects and standing water, and over two hundred thousand Puerto Ricans have fled to the U.S. (Remember, Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens.) Because of this, I’m in Puerto Rico now, where I’ve come

Come Together

As you may have read or seen on the news this week, Southern California is on fire again. But to long-time residents, this really isn’t unusual. A few years ago, my younger brother threw me a birthday party in Pasadena, and the hills above that party were on fire. Not long after I came to America in the early 90s, a lot of Malibu was in flames. And in 1961, Bel-Air, one of the neighborhoods currently threatened, was destroyed by a firestorm. What’s been making these fires worse is the combination of a long drought and the Santa Ana winds

Arrivals Without Departures

Today is the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day, which means that it’s the beginning of Advent. You may or may not have heard that term before, although you might know that this is when kids start opening up those calendars with the candy or toys hidden behind the little doors, one for each day leading up to Christmas. The term “advent” actually comes from the Latin word for arrival, and the holiday refers to expectation of the arrival of Jesus as an infant in Bethlehem — Christmas. But I’m going to be looking at it metaphorically today. Think about how

What Your Dog Wants For The Holidays

Here we are again — the end of the year and beginning of the holiday season. For my American fans, I hope you had a pleasant Thanksgiving with good food, surrounded by friends and family. For everyone else, it’s time to count down to the finale of 2017 and get ready to celebrate. And by the way, I’m going to give you a big reason to celebrate, but I’ll get back to that later! Prior to that, though, since so much of the holidays revolve around gifts, I’m going to let you in on a little secret: The best gift

Time For The Holiday Hunt!

There’s a tradition in the U.S. called Thanksgiving, which, since 1941, has been celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. Traditionally, families gather together to share big meals, usually centered on a whole turkey, along with all “the fixings’” — mashed potatoes, dressing, cranberry sauce, and yams, with pumpkin pie for dessert. It can be a really big deal, with preparation beginning early in the morning, the feast happening in mid-afternoon, and the festivities dragging on long into the night. And in modern times, it’s not just limited to family events. People living far from home often gather with unrelated

It All Makes Scents

Three years ago today, humans did something amazing. After a trip of nearly eleven years, the European Space Agency put a probe in orbit around a comet and placed a lander on that comet. Okay, that lander, Philae, didn’t quite end up the way it was supposed to, but it was still an impressive feat. That probe had to travel 310 million miles to get precisely to an object only 2.5 miles across — only slightly wider than Manhattan at its widest point. But that’s one of the things that humans do. We explore. Of course, we have to build

Counting The Hours

If you live in a place in the U.S. that does Daylight Saving Time, I hope you remembered to set your clock back yesterday. However, I hate to tell you that this doesn’t mean you suddenly got a whole extra hour. You just got back the hour that “disappeared” back in March. And, really, nothing actually changed except what your clock said. Every day still has 24 hours in it, the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, and everything goes on. Your dog may be a little confused by the change of schedule for a day

Tricky Treats

It’s Halloween season again, and if you live in America, you’re probably not far from elaborately decorated homes and there may even be a haunted house attraction or two in your town. There’s a reason that it’s one of the most popular holidays, along with Christmas. People like being scared in safe ways. That’s why a lot of us watch horror movies, or go on thrill rides, or visit escape rooms. There’s something about the excitement of facing fake danger that many people enjoy. A big reason for this is that we know that the scares aren’t real, and we

Is Your Dog Addicted To You?

Like dogs, humans can experience separation anxiety, although usually for rational reasons. People generally don’t feel anxiety because their spouse went to work or their kid went to school. But it’s normal to feel it if your spouse works as a firefighter, or it’s your kid’s first day at a new school; worse if your kid is a teen who just got their license. There is one irrational reason humans will have separation anxiety, though. That happens when we fall in love. When the object of our affections isn’t around, nothing feels right in the world. If you have experienced
