More than 80% of children have an online presence by the age of two. That's the result of a UK report from OFCOM. In the world of "sharenting" (terrible name) the average parent has shared 1500 images of their kid before they turn 5. I think it's fair to say we are all proud of our little ones. But we should be warned about the dangers of over-sharing. As it could pose risks to our children. In the UK their are working on the "right to be forgotten". Where children can ask online platforms to delete their pictures. But it might be too late then. So think about the kids before you post that cute, but maybe slightly embarrassing, picture.

Here's a quick reference guide to whiskey. Remind yourself why there is a difference between whiskey and whisky (but that it really doesn't matter). Why you probably prefer single malt over blended. And that moonshine has actually nothing to do with whiskey.
But traditions are different worldwide. And that makes it interesting. Did you know that EU laws indicate that whisk(e)y must age for more than 3 years? And in the US they simply can't wait that long?

Showing you a picture of my toilet is not what I'm going to do. But talking about bowel movements seems a topic that might be of interest to you. 💩 It's a strange, and slightly embarrassing matter to talk about. But I did stumble upon the article today. And it is the most read article on MNT. You can read the full article on their website (find the link through our bio). The main question asked: "How many times a day should you poop?" TLDR; Somewhere between 3 times per week to 3 times a day. So it depends. It's a very personal habit and can vary from person to person. Just be concerned if it changes in regularity or consistency.

Without projecting a single study on a larger group and generalizing the according findings, I do believe we have to be careful with minimizing the issue. Hegemonic masculinity is the idea that one’s machismo must be broadcast constantly, no matter what he is dealing with or how he feels inside. And it has taken its role on the suicide rate amongst white males in the US. One way to overcome this to update our definition of masculinity for the 21st century. Read more about why being a white male is nowadays subject for withering your mental health, on the Big Think @bigthinkers.

Without getting too much into politics. This video of AJ+ @ajplus explains a trend that is visible worldwide. Apparently humans are getting fewer children. To keep populations stable in industrialized countries, we need to have 2.1 babies. But those numbers are lower in the US and Europe. And in Japan these numbers seem to be the lowest with just 1.41 babies per woman. It's not a matter of infertility, but it's a clear choice. As we become more focused on our careers, gaining more money, getting a better health. We tend to live longer, and just have less babies.
