The next time you’re bored at work, resist the urge to flip through your ex’s Facebook photos and engage in a productive distraction instead. Empire & State is a new MMO game (that is, “massively multiplayer online,” meaning opponents are playing from their own computers) from Redmond-based gaming startup Novel Inc. While most MMOs take place in the fantasy realm, Empire & State designers focused instead on the realm of economics and politics, crafting a game that’s entertaining but also could be instructive for those climbing the corporate ladder.

Could it be? Is what is regarded as “beautiful” becoming a little more inclusive?

J.H. Kellogg, cereal mogul, believed circumcision was a sure-fire cure for masturbation—particularly if the surgery was performed without chloroform so the boy could feel it. In the 1870s, his and similar views on male sexuality and hygiene set scalpels slicing across the United States, where the practice had previously been uncommon.
