Thanks to COVID-19, co-parenting with high-conflict people has been a doubly stressful hellscape. Here’s how to prevent your difficult co-parent from making Christmas 2020 worse.

DISCLAIMER: This is not legal advice.

No one signed up for this pandemic. Uncertainty, fear, anxiety, isolation, grief, sorrow, and rage have touched us all. Parenting in 2020 remains an amplified experience. For many dealing with high-conflict co-parents to boot, this year has been a doubly stressful hellscape.

This is because high-conflict co-parents (HCCs) have a pattern of difficult behavior that antagonizes conflict rather than reducing or resolving it. According to experts, this pattern repeats across many dynamics and situations. In co-parenting, how the high-conflict personality approaches problem-solving can drastically impact the quality of life for all involved.

Data is the most valuable commodity on Earth, surpassing fossil fuels like oil. Big Data covertly collects, sells, and uses our data against us. Memri unlocks our data’s potential by putting control back in our own hands.

The world is rapidly becoming more interconnected, and we are generating ever-larger reams of digital data. One trend accelerating this pace of change is the growing prevalence of connected devices.

In 2014, a total of 10 billion internet-connected devices, and economists from the World Economic Forum predicted a staggering rise to 20 billion connected devices by 2020. [1] In actuality, this number surpassed, and the number of IoT devices alone hit over 22 billion by 2018. [2] More devices mean more data, and the amount of new data generated is nearly unfathomable. Every single day, we produce 2.2 quintillion bytes…

By widely celebrating the spirit and message of the Juneteenth holiday, we can transform our shameful slave legacy into a global celebration of freedom.

This week, I learned that nearly a dozen of my friends and family from all walks of life, all well-educated, and many of which were Texans themselves, had genuinely never heard of Juneteenth.

Juneteenth Freedom Day, also sometimes referred to as Juneteenth Independence Day or Black Independence Day, commemorates the June 19, 1865 announcement by Union General Gordon Granger in Galveston, Texas, who revealed to Texas slaves that the Civil War had ended. General Order Number 3 began most significantly with:

“The people of Texas are informed that in accordance with a Proclamation from the Executive of the United States…

Professor Andrew Fyfe, an Iraq War veteran, Bronze Star recipient, and doctoral candidate discuss foreign policy, Iraq intervention, and the philosophical and moral questions surrounding the Iraq War from a veteran’s perspective. Will the Iraqi three-state solution unfold? Will the Kurds hold the north?

How do Fallujah veterans feel about the city falling to insurgents after so much bloodshed? Is Obama any better than Bush? Does the Iraq war pass the Just War Theory litmus test? If not, how should anti-war activists treat veterans of the Iraq war when they believe their sacrifices are unworthy of respect? Prof. Fyfe responds.


Simply put, ThreeFold is building a new internet. But what’s wrong with the old one you might ask?

For most of us, the Internet is more of a concept than a tangible entity. We often forget that it relies on a physical infrastructure that connects networks to other networks. There are several problems with the web’s current infrastructure, however. It’s highly centralized and allows for easy censorship, incredibly energy inefficient and unsustainable, inaccessible to much of the world, and lacks true privacy because so many middlemen access your data traffic.

  • ThreeFold has deployed a distributed grid of nodes across over 21+ countries, which enables it to reach remote regions that were previously un-networked.
  • Because of its decentralized nature…

June 9, 2020 — Cheers! A toast to being on the precipice of a huge shift in the way America socializes. The way we drink is changing, and our tastes for alcohol are on the decline. For millennia, alcohol has been the mood-changing tool of choice. Excavations revealed that ancient Egyptians brewed beer and wine, ancient Chinese made wine from rice and grapes, and we all know that wine was a diet staple for the ancient Greeks.

Sharing a drink is a deeply ingrained social ritual that sanctifies special moments and celebrations, both large and small. It’s a part of…
