Suicide: The Unspoken Epidemic Destroying Our Nation

Men are killing themselves in record numbers, yet we refuse to talk about it. Men achieve all that they are told will satisfy them, and yet they can not see enough joy and hope in life to keep going. It is time to speak up and stop this silent epidemic of death against men and their families. 13 months ago I wrote a post on this website about dads who kill ...

In fact, research shows we need to plate up as much colour as possible every day to get the maximum health benefits from fruits and vegetables. Far too few of us eat the recommended daily intake of five serves of vegetables and two serves of fruit. Not only do we ...

Is Work-Life Balance (still) Possible?

Oprah Winfrey said that you can’t have everything and do everything at the same time. Was she right? Today we unpack work-life balance and ask if it is still possible. And if it is, then how? When the term work-life balance is raised, it usually stirs some sort of emotion in you. There are a few who don’t desire ‘work-life balance’, but on the whole, most men I speak to have ...

Time Margins End the Marginalisation of Men From Families

Margin is a term entrenched in the financial world. Margin trading. Stock margin. Profit margin -- the examples are vast. In situ, it means the sum total between a ‘product or service's selling price and the cost of production’. In practice, margin is a buffer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onxDxK_N6K8   In other words, margin is whatever fills the gap between success and ruin. Margin is what’s left over after both variable and invariable costs have ...

Chips and Gravy

While we were waiting for our order -- chips and gravy -- she was telling me with much conviction that if you spit chewing gum onto the footpath, some people will come along and pick it up, and because it has your tooth-prints in the gum, ...
