    I haven’t thought much about food packaging, except in the sense that it creates garbage (and that I feel a twinge of guilt when I buy a product with packaging).  I recently read an article “Our Food: Packaging and Public Health,” by L.

    The deep secrets of boys and men, according to the research, is that they have the same desire for connection and close friendships as girls and women and that many of our cultural norms of masculinity are hurting rather than helping boys find what they need and want.
