Washington is 1st state to allow composting of human bodies SEATTLE — Ashes to ashes, guts to dirt. Gov. Jay Inslee signed legislation Tuesday making Washington the first state to approve composting as an alternative to burying or cremating human remains. It allows licensed facilities to offer “natural organic reduction,” which turns a body, mixed with substances such as wood chips and straw, into about two wheelbarrows’ worth of soil in a span of several weeks. Loved ones are allowed to keep the soil to spread, just as they might spread the ashes of someone who has been cremated — or even use it to plant vegetables or a tree.

We Can Help Men Live Longer If this doesn’t sound like medical care to you, then you are a well-acculturated American. Our health system has led us to believe that medical care and health care are interchangeable terms. They are not. In the United States, we have a medical system but we lack a system that cares for our health. For example, if an older man falls, whether from weakened muscles our system has led him to believe are the inevitable result of aging (muscles can be strengthened at all ages) or from heart disease (much of which is preventable), our medical system will pay to transport him by ambulance to an emergency department, where he will receive labs and scans.

Fact-Checking Claims about Winners and Losers with New Tax Reform (Part II) – in All things In the last article, I started working through some of the more prominent claims of the massive number of articles about “who won/lost with the new tax law.” In particular, I addressed a couple of claims that play to a sort of reverse-Robin Hood narrative about the nature of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. Today, we’ll pick up where we left off with a couple of claims that are similarly popular, and I’ll try to put a bow on all of this before assessing the new tax law in its broader political context for the last piece of this series. Perception: This is a victory for Red States over Blue States. Correction: The changes to the individual income tax are better for people who will claim the standard deduction and are more likely to mean less to people in high tax/high-cost states. The biggest reason why many winner/loser tallies put blue states in the loser column is that Democrat-leaning states are more likely to have both a high cost of living and a high tax burden on residents.

How to improve education: move the classroom outdoors When nature is used as a classroom, it has a positive effect on learning among children in at least eight different ways, according to a new survey of the research. Scientists suggest exposing students to natural environments goes beyond making them appreciate life on the planet — it improves a child's ability to learn and can even improve grades, especially in disadvantaged children. The American survey collected peer-reviewed studies that examined the learning outcomes of students who had been taken out of the classroom to not only go on wilderness backpacking hikes, or visit a wetland or a nature centre, but who also held traditional classes in outdoor settings.

Men’s Stress Increases If Wife Earns More Than 40% of Household Income Husbands are least stressed when their wives earn up to 40% of household income but they become increasingly uncomfortable as their spouse’s wages rise beyond that point and are most stressed when they are entirely economically dependent on their partner, new research from the University of Bath shows. The study of over 6,000 American heterosexual couples over 15 years showed husbands are at their most anxious when they are the sole breadwinner, shouldering all the burden of responsibility for the household’s finances. Stress levels decline as their wives’ earnings approach 40% of household income. But as women’s earnings go through that point, the study showed husbands’ stress levels gradually increasing. “These findings suggest that social norms about male breadwinning ― and traditional conventions about men earning more than their wives ― can be dangerous for men’s health.

Why didn't anyone want to repair Notre Dame before the fire? The nave of Notre Dame is, as we all know, currently without a roof. But still standing over it is an enormous block of scaffolding, a reminder that the cathedral was in bad shape before it was devastated by the fire on Monday night. The scaffolding, which now looks like someone dropped a gigantic bowling ball through its center, was completed in the summer of 2018 for what was supposed to be a 30-year renovation of the aging cathedral. That plan was made before the roof burned. And after? At a press conference on Tuesday, Frédéric Létoffé, one of the presidents of the French organization that represents historic monument restoration companies, said he thought the reconstruction would take 10 to 15 years.

Ryan Kavanaugh - Known Internationally for his Blockbuster Movies Ryan Kavanaugh evoked the spirit of the late Tom Sherak when he accepted the Fulfillment Fund’s initial award named after the late film executive at the organization’s 20th annual Stars gala Tuesday at the Beverly Hilton. The Relativity Media CEO called Sherak “a driving force pushing people to give” who reminded the world “we have a moral obligation to donate money and time to those in need.” Kavanaugh said he was at first skeptical about being the honoree at a dinner that’s known for bringing the entertainment industry together because “I’m not exactly the least polarizing person in Hollywood.” However, he was non-polarizing enough for the evening to raise over $2 million.

The Department Store Museum: May-D&F, Denver, Colorado May-D&F was formed by a merger of the May Company of Denver and Daniels & Fisher, which had previously occupied separate store buildings. The dean of the University of Detroit School of Architecture, Bruno Leon, was responsible for the design of the new store, and said that the entrance structure, technically a "hyperbolic parabaloid," was designed to draw attention to the store's "trinkets."

Why you may not need to worry about Ontario farmed fish after all Are farmed fish good or bad for the environment? The answer, according to research published last week, is: it’s complicated. A decade-long study into the effect of farming rainbow trout in the Experimental Lakes Area, located between Kenora and Dryden, in Ontario’s northwest, was published in the journal Freshwater Biology last week, and the results are surprising. When scientists added a fish farm to an otherwise untouched small lake at the ELA, the populations of some wild fish boomed relative to those in a control lake where no farmed fish were added. The epidemic — and consequences — of male loneliness Loneliness kills. According to former U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, isolation and weak social connections “are associated with a reduction in lifespan similar to that caused by smoking 15 cigarettes a day and even greater than that associated with obesity.” Even when it’s not fatal, loneliness makes life a lot less pleasant. We’ll talk about exactly what that means below. While loneliness cuts across all racial and socio-economic lines — just about everyone feels lonely at some point, right?
