      This is one of the reasons I view the pandemic as a net win for white collar american workers - not the affordance of more family time, but the visibility of it. Kids crashing zooms, babies crying, yelling in the background. It normalizes being a parent

    1. “White people go around, it seems to me, with a very carefully suppressed terror of Black people—a tremendous uneasiness,” Baldwin said. “They don’t know what the Black face hides. They’re sure it’s hiding something. What it’s hiding is American history. What it’s hiding is what white people know they have done, and what they like doing. White people know very well one thing; it’s the only thing they have to know. They know this; everything else, they’ll say, is a lie. They know they would not like to be Black here.

    1. The eight-hour working day is a relatively new concept, widely accepted to have been cemented by Ford Motor Company a century ago as a means of keeping production going 24 hours a day without putting undue demands on individual members of staff.

      Yep - this wasn't made to help people improve work/life balance, but was made to split the 24hr day into three 8hr shifts.

    1. Before we get into reasons these differences exist, it’s worth noting there are a number of things that are true across the fitness world. You can rely on these, and when you get confused, come back to them

      • Cardio is important too, and we should all get 150+ minutes of it each week.
