If you spent any of your school years at all in a Catholic school, then you probably spent some time being taught by nuns. Over the years, more and more Catholic schools are turning to lay teachers as fewer women are called to a religious vocation. But there is at least one college in the northeast that is still run by someone called “sister”, not “mister”

Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll hear a conversation with Sister Mary Reap , the President of Elms College in the Berkshires.

Vassar College students have been holding a sit-in this week, calling on the college’s Board of Trustees to divest its endowment funds from direct holdings in fossil fuel companies. Vassar is just one of hundreds of campuses—a number of them in the Northeast—where such efforts have taken place over the past few years.

Historically (thanks to religion and culture), masturbation has gotten a bad rap, and has been blamed for everything from blindness to mental illness. Thankfully, most people no longer believe in such myths, but masturbation still holds a stigma as something to be done when you’re not in a relationship. Or you’re a 15-year-old boy. Or you’re Samantha from Sex and the City. But it’s time to break some of those taboos.

According to Dr. Hernando Chaves, sexuality professor and marriage therapist, “It’s important to continue our sexual self-expression throughout the life cycle, for physical, psychological and relational benefits.”

In other words, if you’re wondering: is masturbation is good for you? It is.

Here’s why:

Masturbation Lowers Blood Pressure

This one is a no-brainer. Anything that makes you feel good is likely to help lower blood pressure. But there’s also science behind it. Orgasms cause the body to release Reebok Ridgerider Trail 20 wfVxeRm
, flooding your body with feel-good chemicals.The positive side effect? Lower blood pressure.

Remember the old phrase, “if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it”?Turns out that applies to sex as well. One study found that men who had sex or masturbated once a week were less likely to develop erectile dysfunction (ED). Erections help maintain penis health and stave off ED.


According to Dr. Chaves, masturbation can also lead to a “reduction in anxiety and stress and increased self-esteem and body image perception.” Low self-esteem isn’t just for teenagers and stress isn’t just for those still in the workplace. Taking care of one’s mental health throughout the later stages of life is just important as it is during the earlier ones.

According to sex therapist Dr. Ava Cadell, healthy masturbation can decrease those chronic aches and pains that plague us as we get older. “It can help relieve muscle aches, stress – even unblock a stuffy nose!” Dr. Cadell says.And just think: masturbation is free and healthier than popping another painkiller.

Age is often blamed for lowering libidos, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Consistent masturbation can keep your “motor running,” so to speak.Much like a car, our parts can get a little rusty if not used consistently. Even if you’re widowed or divorced there’s no reason you can’t continue to masturbate. That way, if and when you do meet someone special, you’re ready to go.

Nobel prize in literature

After the Swedish Academy cancelled the traditional prize this year, the New Academy plans a parallel honour in October

Alison Flood



The Swedish Academy is not awarding a Nobel prize for literature this year, but a group of Swedish cultural figures are coming together to bestow their own version of the world’s most prestigious literary award instead, as an act of protest at the scandal that has engulfed the academy.

The 2018 Nobel prize for literature was cancelled in May , following allegations of sexual assault made against Jean-Claude Arnault, husband of Katarina Frostenson. Frostenson is an author and a member of the Swedish Academy, the prize’s secretive jury. Chantara Patent Convertible Back Block Heel Loafers s0t0T8Yrd

The scandal, which kickstarted debate about the academy’s patriarchal nature and fights in the Swedish media between academicians, led to a wave of resignations and to the postponement of this year’s prize “in view of the currently diminished academy and the reduced public confidence”.

In its place, more than 100 Swedish writers, actors, journalists and other cultural figures Adrianna Papell Alba Wykk9H6
, which will hand out its own award this autumn, following the same timeline as the Nobel.

“We have founded the New Academy to remind people that literature and culture at large should promote democracy, transparency, empathy and respect, without privilege, bias arrogance or sexism,” they said in a statement.

“In a time when human values are increasingly being called into question, literature becomes an even more important counterforce to stop the culture of silence and oppression. The New Academy regards this as so important that the world’s greatest literature prize should still be awarded in 2018.”

The New Academy is inviting all of Sweden’s librarians to nominate authors. Contenders can come from anywhere in the world, and must have written at least two books, one of which was published in the last 10 years. They are looking for a writer who has told the story of “humans in the world” – in contrast to the Nobel, which is intended to honour the writer who has penned, in the words of Alfred Nobel’s will, “the most outstanding work in an ideal direction”.

Once nominations have been received, the New Academy will launch a public vote, with the four most popular authors to then be put before its jury. Led by editor Ann Pålsson and also including Gothenburg University professor Lisbeth Larsson and librarian Gunilla Sandin, the jury will announce its winner in October, the same month the Nobel is traditionally announced.

Moving Wall:

The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal. Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication. Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted. For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
