Sometimes It Takes A Friend For Men To Break Through Stigma

St. Patrick Actually Wore Blue, And Other Facts History Got Wrong

When you think of St. Patrick, the man who brought Christianity to Ireland, what do you see? A man with a white beard in green clerical robes, wearing a mitre, carrying a crook? This is the commonly recognized version of the saint but it turns out that much of his costume has been appropriated from different time periods and is not necessarily true to the period in which St. Patrick lived.

Do Nice Guys Really Finish Last?

"Men confuse "nice" with "weak" and this is the problem," says First Gentleman, Zacchary Falconer-Barfield. "Being nice is being polite and respectful; someone willing to compromise. Being weak is lacking in self-confidence, but this is a temporary state of being, and it's all in your head."

Why You Should Plan Now For Extreme Winter Weather

I know extreme winter weather because I'm from Saskatchewan. Smart prairie drivers keep an emergency kit in the trunk of their car for winter driving because they know that if anything goes wrong out on a desolate highway, they could easily perish in the cold if they don't have proper supplies.
