Finds of the Week:
- The Afterlife of Pia Farrenkopf, The New Yorker — This whole situation is just absurd and sad; this particular article looks how Ms. Farrenkopf kept “living” through her virtual doppelganger, and leads me to some interesting thoughts on the definition of self and identity.
- The Free-Marketing Gravy Train Is Over on Facebook, Time — Boo. Not the best news for those of us who make our living in social media.
- How often does breastfeeding come undone?, Breastfeeding Medicine — A look at how often and why women stop breastfeeding.
- Is Walmart the Biggest SNAP Beneficiary?, Food Politics — 🙁
- New Parenting Study Released, The New Yorker — It’s just…you have to read it. Hilarious, and I’ll leave it at that.
- A Second Embrace, With Hearts and Eyes Open, NY Times — A story of a married couple who divorced and found one another again.
- Was It Fatal for You, Darling?, NY Times — About having sex as we age — seriously one of the funniest things I have read, ever. “When this happens with a guy in his 40s or 50s, it’s not a concern. You’re either (best case) reveling in your own state of bliss or (worst case) feeling relieved because now you’ll be able to go to the kitchen and get a Diet Pepsi. But when you get that look with a guy in his late 60s or early 70s, there’s just one question: Is he dead?” (Something to look forward to, I guess?)
- Water Babies: Docs Challenge Growing Trend — Childbirth In A Tub, WBUR — About a recent ACOG opinion on water birth.
