Summary of “Kyle Snyder Is The Perfect Wrestler”

By March 2015, wrestler Kyle Snyder was used to winning.
Sadulaev tried to force Snyder out of bounds; Snyder snuck under him and picked up a point.
Barely a minute in, Sadulaev picked up Snyder by the knee and carried him out of bounds for a 3-1 lead. Snyder recognized that his relentless offensive strategy wasn’t working, and he shifted to a slower pace and succeeded in pulling Sadulaev to the mat for a two-point takedown, making it a 3-3 tie heading into the final three-minute period.
Sadulaev seemed to have taken total control of the match when, with two minutes left, he chased Snyder to the edge of the mat and took him down for a 5-3 lead. Snyder ended up on his knees twice after, narrowly averting disaster, but the score stayed at 5-3.
Then Snyder flipped Sadulaev onto his stomach to go up 6-5 and clinch the first men’s team title for the United States since 1995-the year Snyder was born.
The first is pretty straightforward, if by definition unattainable-though Ohio State head coach Tom Ryan speaks so effusively about how Snyder lives that he has to pull back and make it clear that Snyder is not God.
There are outliers, and Snyder says that when he engages with them, his attitude is, “If you disagree, let’s learn together.” With a smile on his face, Snyder recounts the time at a training camp when a Team USA teammate told him that he would “Never believe unless Jesus literally walked through the door, in his flesh, and shook his hand and said, ‘Hi, I’m Jesus.'”.
Despite his usual ferocity, Snyder told me, “At the beginning of the season, I wasn’t that excited about wrestling Adam because of how big he was.” This is unusual language for Snyder.

Summary of “Have a Baby? Embrace Glamping”

Camping used to be simple for my husband and me: load up the gear in a backpack and hit the trail.
When you have everything you need to make camping comfortable for your kid, it’s easier to go more often.
A few weeks ago, I camped with a bunch of friends just 40 minutes from my house.
Some people think that just because you’re camping, you need to have a remote, solo experience.
Two-burner stoves normally feel excessive and clunky, but when you can crank out food in ten minutes after a long day or running around in the woods, you’ll be grateful.
He’ll bring two large metal buckets with handles that we can fill at any water spigot and carry back to camp for cleaning up.
My husband used to laugh at my insistence on bringing toys camping.
If at daycare your kiddo goes to the playground at 10 a.m., then naps at 1 p.m., make that your camp schedule, too.

Summary of “Alec Baldwin On Trump, Hollywood and Why Everyone is Out To Get Him”

Now, he’s about to take what could be his biggest gamble yet: The Alec Baldwin Show, airing at 10 p.m. Sundays on ABC starting Oct. 14.
Outside, on the streets of Manhattan, it sure doesn’t feel like everyone’s out to get Alec Baldwin.
As we leave Ray’s on an overcast mid-September afternoon, a young man hollers, “Duuuude, you do that Donald Trump thing real good. Real good.” The man introduces himself as Tyrone, and though he’s waving and pointing and causing something of a scene, the often-irritable Baldwin doesn’t mind a bit.
For a time, Baldwin had been toying with taking his Trump to Broadway, too – turning You Can’t Spell America Without Me, the best-selling parody he co-authored with Kurt Andersen, into a one-man show, the way Will Ferrell once had with his impersonation of George W. Bush.
If there’s one thing that people in the business will tell you about Alec Baldwin – other than sharing their obligatory respect for his acting chops and the intensity he brings to everything he does – it’s that he can be almost impossible to pin down.
More than once, he has doled out his “Last interview,” most famously on a 2014 New York magazine cover that declared his “Goodbye to public life.” In the accompanying article, which carried Baldwin’s byline, he announced he had to move out of Manhattan, his home of several decades.
The Alec Baldwin Show was conceived more in the Tomorrow Show vein – intimate, inoffensive conversations, or what ABC’s Mills describes as “The warm bath style of interviewing.” To Jason Schrift, who was brought over to run the show after years on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Baldwin’s perfectly suited for the job.
What the interview proves is that Baldwin – who pulls out his eerily good De Niro impression and tells a fabulous, profanity-laced story about the mob that ABC will surely cut – can carry an hour of television if he needs to.

Summary of “The age of envy: how to be happy when everyone else’s life looks perfect”

To explore the role that envy plays in our use of social media, Kross and his team designed a study to consider the relationship between passive Facebook use – “Just voyeuristically scrolling,” as he puts it – and envy and mood from moment to moment.
The results were striking, he says: “The more you’re on there scrolling away, the more that elicits feelings of envy, which in turn predicts drops in how good you feel”.
No age group or social class is immune from envy, according to Andrew.
In her consulting room she sees young women, self-conscious about how they look, who begin to follow certain accounts on Instagram to find hair inspiration or makeup techniques, and end up envying the women they follow and feeling even worse about themselves.
While we are busy finding the perfect camera angle, our lives become a dazzling, flawless carapace, empty inside but for the envy of others and ourselves, in a world where black cats languish in animal shelters because they are not “Selfie-friendly”.
“Envy is wanting to destroy what someone else has. Not just wanting it for yourself, but wanting other people not to have it. It’s a deep-rooted issue, where you are very, very resentful of another person’s wellbeing – whether that be their looks, their position or the car they have. It is silent, destructive, underhand – it is pure malice, pure hatred,” she says.
She believes envy is not innate; that it starts with an experience of early deprivation, when a mother cannot bond with her baby, and that child’s self-esteem is not nourished through his or her life.
Perhaps each of us also needs to think more carefully when we do use social media actively, about what we are trying to say and why – and how the curation of our online personas can contribute to this age of envy in which we live.

Summary of “It’s Complicated: Dating Without Texting Is the Best”

I’d meet someone, and next thing I knew, we were texting more frequently than I text my best friends.
The difference, of course, is that texting your best friends is a fun diversion, whereas texting someone you’re interested in can feel exhilarating but also exhausting.
We would keep texting to logistics, like if one of us was running late, or if we needed the other to pick something up a key ingredient, like limes for the gin and tonics or American cheese for the burgers, on the way over.
Thank god for that; the truth is, texting had already derailed our relationship once.
Not wanting to leave him hanging, but also not wanting to share the details of my family’s situation, I texted back, “Running around text you in a bit 😘.”.
So we found ourselves sitting on his living room floor, with chicken thighs, wine, and later homemade chocolate chip cookies, discussing the possibility of continuing to see each other but ending our texting relationship.
Unlike a friendship, where not responding to a text for two hours is acceptable, in dating, both the act of texting and not texting communicate something.
With texting off the table, I found I could live my own life much more easily.

Summary of “Exploring the Uncanny, Sci-Fi Dystopias of Simon Stålenhag”

There are people who think there’s something else to it, like “Something will happen! You will become a man!” Something like that.
There’s an interview with Ari Aster, the director, in which he’s asked why he made a film that’s about so much family drama, and he said something like: “Because stories about family drama don’t sell. I had to make a horror movie.”
How do you feel your work is, going forward, responding to that, if it’s responding to that at all? Can you picture a world in which technology is not something that is used as a tool of exploitation?
Now it’s like, “No, it is okay for you to say that you have been robbed of something,” and that is where I’m scared of technology.
Do you think that as an artist, and specifically as a Swedish artist, that this is something that is going to be reflected in your work going forward?
We might learn something about the world, but it’s really the first post-apocalyptic thing I’ve ever done.
The Electric State is kind of on the verge of something happening and Tales from The Loop and Things from The Flood they’re basically-they’re basically just realism with robots thrown in.
To me it’s like something about her heart not giving up, and keeping on going, and it’s some sparkle of love.

Summary of “How to Decide What to Do With Your Life”

The question burns in your mind - you want to figure out what to do with your life.
Paradoxically, continuing to think about what to do with your life without, you know, actually doing anything, wastes time too.
I’ve been fortunate enough to more or less figure out what I want to do with my life at least for the near future.
It’s easy to think about a new path you want to take in your life.
You can’t really decide what to do with your life prior to acting.
The beginning steps to figuring out what to do with your life are simple.
You’ll Never “Figure Out” What to do With Your LifeYour life isn’t a multiple choice test.
Your problem isn’t figuring out what to do with your life.

Summary of “16 Mental Shifts for Living a Happier, Wealthier, More Successful Life”

Part of the reason these things are difficult for us to achieve is that we never really define what our purpose is in life.
Here are 16 life changing ways you can attain success, wealth and happiness and live your best life.1.
Ask yourself, are you building your life in a way that will make you happy? And if you aren’t, why not? What is holding you back? It’s time to take responsibility for your life.
Choose a handful of things that you value most and you want to be the focal point of your life.
What do you really care about? What commitments are most important to you? You need to develop a clear vision for what your big life goals are, what you’re hoping to achieve, and then focus on the things that will get you there.
We must train ourselves to embrace delayed gratification in order to achieve the things that we really want in life.
You’re never going to become successful, rich and happy living a boring, dull, uninspired life.
Happiness and satisfaction comes from living a life that have meaning to you, each step of the way.

Summary of “How Your Notifications Are Lying to You and How to Make Them Stop”

Notifications are for the benefit of the app, the phone, the social network.
How often do you truly need an interruption to your day, a thing that sets your pants buzzing and makes you drop what you’re doing, be it work or play, and rush to take a different action? Maybe once or twice a day, right? So why are notifications bugging you all the time?
I’ve told my Twitter app not to send notifications when somebody likes a tweet or retweets me or follows me; those aren’t urgent.
If you check an app often, you don’t need its notifications at all.
I can show you how to get fewer of those garbage notifications.
The real answer is almost all of them, but I know that when you start turning them off you’re going to think about the jolt of dopamine you get when you see some beloved app’s notifications.
Stop! Don’t base your judgment on how the notification makes you feel when you see it; base it on how you feel about your whole goddam life knowing that this app gets to bother you 100 times per day.
Installing an app on your desktop often gives it a direct line to system level notifications.

Summary of “‘The people’s yogi’: how Adriene Mishler became a YouTube phenomenon”

The woman is 33-year-old yogi and actor Adriene Mishler, and this is the largest live yoga class she has ever held – she is more frequently to be found teaching alone in front of her camera at home in Austin, Texas, than IRL. And it is this intimate version of her that 4 million subscribers to her Yoga with Adriene YouTube channel have come to know and share their homes with.
Search “Yoga” on Google, and Adriene dominates.
The yoga community can feel intimidating – bodies contorted for aspirational Instagram posts, or studios where you are pushed uncomfortably deep into poses – but Adriene has positioned herself in opposition to the unrealistically ascetic side.
“I used to make margarita jokes, just to get people to see that yoga is not only for people who sit in lotus all day and sip yogi tea.” She measures her language carefully: “I don’t want to criticise people doing the pretzel [poses], but I think there’s a lack of awareness.”
For Krohn, “Adriene was the first teacher who really got me to understand that yoga was about more than just physical flexibility or that kind of ego-driven thing that goes with modern yoga.” Bradley came to yoga because she has arthritis – Adriene has, she says, helped her find some acceptance: “This is where you are you can still do things but don’t push it, find what you can do.”
With millions of people able to access her yoga for free, I’ll get to critiques of her motivation once I’ve untangled from pigeon pose.
Once a trailblazer, Adriene is now one of a host of online yoga teachers bringing an ancient practice to a mass, modern audience.
She weighs up the next words, almost egging herself on: “I want all the people who voted for Trump to do my yoga. I want all the people who battle with the experience of racism to do yoga.” There’s that yoga for all message again.
