Are We Confusing Money With Well-Being? New Zealand Believes So.

quoting Michael Spencevia Big Think
Thursday, June 6, 2019

Politicians love to flaunt economic growth. A healthy gross domestic product (GDP) means an economy is doing well, which means the country is doing well, which means its citizens are doing well. It's all thanks to sagacious policy crafted by our savvy political leaders.

How America’s Urban-Rural Divide Shapes Elections

featuring Jonathan Roddenvia The Economist
Wednesday, June 5, 2019

IN NINE OF America’s 13 congressional elections between 1994 and 2018, the Republican Party won a greater share of seats than votes. In 2012, Democrats failed to garner a majority of seats while winning a broad popular vote victory. Even in the 2018 mid-terms, which were described as a “wave” election, The Economist predicted that the Democrats had to win the popular vote in the House of Representatives by 5-6 percentage points to obtain a bare majority of seats. In the Senate, the situation is worse because of the way states magnify the pro-rural bias of America’s electoral institutions.

The Importance Of Having A Sense Of Purpose

quoting William Damonvia Psychology Today
Tuesday, June 4, 2019

Having a sense of purpose in life is associated with a lower risk of death, according to a study published on May 24, 2019, in JAMA Network Open. The research, which sampled almost 7,000 people, included a Psychological Well-Being evaluation—a seven-item questionnaire which assessed purpose in life (Alimujiang, et al, 2019). The researchers concluded: “This study’s results indicated that stronger purpose in life was associated with decreased mortality. Purposeful living may have health benefits” (2019, p. 2). It's important to note that the study indicates associations between a sense of purpose and health, but not causation.

Trump Or King Cyrus: God Doesn't Always Work Our Way

quoting Niall Fergusonvia Christian Today
Tuesday, June 4, 2019

I can understand why the Bishop of Liverpool spoke out so strongly against Donald Trump ahead of his three-day state visit to the UK. Like the bishop, I am deeply troubled by the President's belligerent and divisive behaviour too, as well as the outrageous "tweets" that seem to fly in the face of many of the values we treasure as Christian believers.
