Out of the Darknessnew

Did people in the Dark Ages suspect they were living in the Dark Ages?

Single Without the Minglenew

“Self-dating” is a term for those flying solo with a self-oriented goal. It is a commitment to oneself — passions, career and dreams — and it builds an intimate relationship with yourself instead of hooking up with another person (or people) in the stereotypical romantic way. It means getting to know yourself, for yourself.

Housing First?new

Has Salt Lake City solved "the homeless problem"? No, despite a flurry of excited stories, it has not. But the Housing First model and the collaboration and commitment from local groups and the government on all levels in combination with Housing First are a huge step in the right direction that other cities can follow.
