In a primer called “The Essential Eve: A Guide to Women’s Perfection,” a doctor advised: “Excessively high heels will always be a source of danger to feet and eventually to health.” Wearing such shoes causes the calf muscles to contract so much, he said, “it becomes almost impossible to walk.” A New York Times headline in May of 1955 warned that “Posture Is Affected by Size of the Heels.” Yet, in this article, Dr.

The greatest force in the evolution of our country from a mostly rural, family-owned farming society into the present day predominantly urban/surburban, mammoth capitalistic system was the Industrial Revolution. The roots of the Industrial Revolution started in England and as merchants and industrialists began to gain power and money, and through the mechanization of production, the previously held belief in the Protestant Work Ethic was replaced. Prior to the Industrial Revolution, people worked for the sake of working because the belief was that idleness was a terrible sin and working warded off the temptations in life. After the Industrial Revolution, the captains of industry realized that there was an unprecedented amount of money to be made because the mechanization of production yielded an abundance of product.

Ira writes: Right now, pretty much every comedian without a network TV show has his own podcast, but Marc Maron's WTF Podcast, here on the web or here on iTunes has distinguished itself as the New York Times of comedy podcasts, and by that I mean the definitive comedy podcast of record. Start with the two-part expose/investigative report into how Carlos Mencia steals other comedians' material, which begins in Part One with Mencia totally denying any wrongdoing and continues in Part Two with other comedians coming forward with evidence and Mencia rushing to Marc's house from the airport, no kidding, to finally cop to his wrongdoing. Or take the amazing two parter with Judd Apatow ( one and two ), where the executive producer of Freaks and Geeks and director of Knocked Up digs out recordings of the radio show he did in high school as an excuse to meet his favorite comedians and interview them about how to get started in comedy.
