So suggests a new study about the psychological effects of the popular dating app, presented at the annual convention of the American Psychological Association. In the study, researchers asked a group of 1, mostly college kids to rate how they generally felt about themselves through questionnaires and self-reports. Questions like How satisfied are you with your thighs? At the very end of the questionnaire, people were asked if they used Tinder. They were also more likely to think of themselves as sexual objects, to internalize societal ideals about beauty, to compare their appearances to others and to constantly monitor how they looked, the researchers found. This was true for men as well as women. But the most fascinating result of all was that men—not women—who used Tinder had the lowest levels of self-esteem. That may simply be because so many more men than women use Tinder, the researchers speculate. Past research has shown that women are more discerning with their swipes than men, who swipe right more liberally.
Ted Turner , owner of WTBS SuperStation During the initial cable television boom of the early s, many programmers turned to professional wrestling as a means to fill out their schedules, as it was relatively inexpensive to produce but drew high ratings. This bucked the then-accepted organization of professional wrestling federations, which were organized according to a patchwork of territorial promotions aimed at—and broadcast to—local audiences, without a centralized, national promotion. Shows were taped before a small yet enthusiastic , live, in-studio audience, as were most professional wrestling TV shows of that era. They featured wrestling matches, plus melodramatic monologues and inter-character confrontations, similar to the programming offered by other territories, including the Northeast -based WWF. GCW’s show, which aired on Saturday evenings, was complemented by a Sunday evening edition. Jack and Gerald Brisco had major stakes in the organization, while Ole Anderson was head booker and was basically in charge of operations. With this move, McMahon controlled all nationally televised wrestling in the United States. Moreover, despite originally promising to produce original programming for the TBS time slot in Atlanta, McMahon chose instead to provide only a clip show for TBS, featuring highlights from other WWF programming as well as matches from house shows at Madison Square Garden , Boston Garden , and other major arenas. This set up a rivalry between McMahon and Turner that would continue for 16 years.

ATTENTION It is natural to want your new love to lavish you with attention and affection but if you are dating a single parent the chances are that our kids get the largest share of our attention.
Take taxes — even when it comes to the most mundane of topics, our neighbors overseas can devise some truly bizarre charges and fines take Sweden’s Stripper Tax. But what about here at home? It’s not just distant foreigners who are coming up with strange tax laws — we Americans are just as creative. The following is a list of the weirdest taxes states have charged in the past or currently levy: Unfortunately, this deduction is only available to Alaska residents, otherwise I would have changed my profession years ago. Playing Card Tax Don’t count on your Jokers to get you out of this one. Alabama charges a 10 cent tax on any pack of cards that contains 54 or fewer in the deck. Tattoo Tax It’s unlikely any rebellious teens got in trouble for coming home hairless, but electrolysis treatments are taxed an extra six percent in sales tax along with tattoos and body piercings. Vending Machine Fruit Tax If you’re stuck with nothing but fresh fruit from the grocery store or farmers market, at least you don’t have to pay extra taxes on it.
Share this article Share But now, thanks to a new documentary film in which she is interviewed at length, a new generation is about to absorb the extraordinary story of the manacled Mormon and the lovesick beauty queen who pursued him across the Atlantic, armed with ruthless determination, a bottle of chloroform and a pair of mink-lined handcuffs. McKinney, the overindulged only child of two school teachers from North Carolina, was a former Miss Wyoming beauty queen. They had a brief affair she says she became pregnant but miscarried , and a guilt-stricken Anderson went for advice to his bishop, who arranged for him to come to England on missionary work. Undaunted, a besotted McKinney set a private detective on his trail and, discovering he was working at a church in the Surrey village of Ewell, set off in pursuit. Renting a 17th-century cottage near Okehampton, she and May drove to Ewell, where May engaged their quarry in conversation by posing as a potential convert. With Anderson — 6ft 4in tall and 17st — lying in the back quaking under a blanket, they drove to the cottage. McKinney cooked dinner and May then manacled their prisoner to a bed — spreadeagled — with a 10ft chain. She then attempted to relax him with a cinnamon oil back rub. McKinney today, with a puppy. A new generation will be able to absorb her extraordinary story in a new film Eventually, after promising to marry her and having his chains loosened, Anderson managed to escape and went to the police.
I’m Dating a Guy Almost 20 Years Younger Than Me I’m pretty sure more than one person has thought that, with our similar hair, skin and eye colors, that we were either brother and really older sister or mom and son, but the pros far outweigh the cons in our relationship. This post originally appeared on xoJane. I’ve been through two unsuccessful marriages. I drive a red Camaro. I guess you can say I’m in the throes of a major midlife crisis. I’ve been checking a lot of things off of my bucket list. One of them was to try my hand at stand-up comedy. The first thing you learn in Stand-up is “write what you know.
By Aaron Smith and Monica Anderson Digital technology and smartphones in particular have transformed many aspects of our society, including how people seek out and establish romantic relationships. Here are five facts about online dating: When we first studied online dating habits in , most Americans had little exposure to online dating or to the people who used it, and they tended to view it as a subpar way of meeting people. Today, nearly half of the public knows someone who uses online dating or who has met a spouse or partner via online dating — and attitudes toward online dating have grown progressively more positive. Online dating use among to year-olds has also risen substantially since the last Pew Research Center survey on the topic. One factor behind the substantial growth among younger adults is their use of mobile dating apps.

But actually, China has been in Africa for a long time. The conference was co-sponsored by Aksum University, Ethiopia. Western history books make a lot out of Vasco da Gama, the 15th and 16th century Portuguese explorer, being the first international trader to open up East Africa. He arrived in on an expedition to find a sea route to Asia, and as we all know, his trip opened up more than years of colonial domination by European maritime powers. But what is not made so much noise about, despite increasing evidence, is that Zheng He, a eunuch administrator and diplomat during the Ming Dynasty in Imperial China, arrived on the East African coast several decades earlier than Vasco da Gama. No one knows for sure where the ship sank but some experts speculate that it happened somewhere off the Malindi coast or near the island of Lamu.
You decided to meet and on your first date things go great. Generally everything feels wonderful. However there is one problem: I had touched on a similar topic last year in my post my boyfriend has kept his online dating profile active. Is He Interested in Me or Not?! First off let me say that many men keep their profiles active even though they are interested in the woman they are regularly dating. They like having women contacting them…even if they are rejecting all of them as it makes them feel desirable. If you think this is annoying I definitely understand but I would still encourage tact when you try to resolve this issue.
