How Nick Kroll Turned His Most Embarrassing Puberty Stories into a New Animated Series
For most people, puberty is an embarrassing experience that they would never willingly revisit. But that’s precisely why comedian Nick Kroll wanted to address it in his new animated comedy series, Big Mouth, which hits Netflix Sept. 29. “As open as society is, there are still certain things that we feel like are too awkward to talk about,” he tells TIME. “And those are the things that we wanted to zero in on specifically.” Big Mouth follows pals Nick (voiced by Kroll) and Andrew (voiced by John Mulaney) as they navigate the awkwardness and uncertainty of puberty. It does so in a way that&rsquo...

Athletes Beat Donald Trump In the Sport of Trash Talk
This week at the United Nations General Assembly, President Donald Trump referred to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as “Rocket Man.” Last night he called NFL players who kneel in protest during the national anthem “sons of bitches.” This morning he tweeted at Stephen Curry, an athlete pretty much everyone admires, calling him in effect “hesitant” and disinviting him from a ceremonial White House visit for the NBA champs, which some have said is the equivalent of telling the prom date who clearly doesn’t want to go to the dance with you that you’re not interested.

Chrissy Teigen Just Learned the Hard Way Not to Troll Kermit the Frog
Do not mess with a Muppet. That’s the lesson Chrissy Teigen learned the hard way this week, after casually subtweeting Kermit the Frog — and getting a cutting response. It all started out innocently enough; the model, cookbook author and active Twitter user sent a casual query to the internet, wondering what tattoos people once wanted, but had the foresight to refrain from actually getting. “Mine is Kermit,” she wrote without explanation. what is a tattoo you wanted when you were younger but, thankfully, never got? mine is kermit — christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 21, 2017 The ...

Arianna Huffington: 10 Ways to Actually, Finally Improve Company Culture
There are endless truisms about the importance of company culture — so many that the idea of a strong culture has become a cliché. We often just nod our heads and move on. But it matters. So how can we put flesh and blood on the idea to make it more than just a nice saying? How can companies embody the connection between culture and the bottom line?

Divided Democratic Party Debates Its Future as 2020 Looms
Like virtually all Democrats, Tim Ryan is no fan of Donald Trump. But as he speeds through his northeastern Ohio district in a silver Chevy Suburban, the eight-term Congressman sounds almost as frustrated with his own party. Popping fistfuls of almonds in the backseat, Ryan gripes about its fixation on divisive issues and its “demonization” of business owners. Ryan, 44, was briefly considered for the role of Hillary Clinton’s running mate last year.

A Way Forward in the North Korea Crisis
There is nothing the US can do to North Korea that will lead to its renunciation of its nuclear weapons program. That is because North Korea already holds US allies hostage to violence we cannot control—and may already or will soon pose a similar threat to the US homeland—and thus presents an unacceptable risk of retaliation for any American offensive military action. There is nothing the US can do for North Korea that might induce it to denuclearize, because keeping North Korea on a war footing vis-à-vis the US keeps the regime of Kim Jong Un in power. There is nothing the international community, inclu...

Stanislav Petrov, the Russian Officer Who Averted a Nuclear War, Feared History Repeating Itself
Stanislav Petrov, the retired officer of the Soviet Air Defense Forces whose death at the age of 77 was announced this week, did not enjoy discussing the day he averted a nuclear holocaust. Maybe he was tired of giving interviews about the fateful cameo he played in the history of the Cold War. Or maybe he was just in a bad mood when he took a call from TIME one summer morning in 2015. But whatever the reason, the first mention of his heroism made him spit across the line from his home in a suburb of Moscow. “Chush!” he hissed into the phone in Russian. “Nonsense!

Coping with the Emotional Impact of Orthopedic Surgery
Snap, snap, crackle, pop. That was the sound of my life changing in an instant during a summer stroll. I fell on slightly uneven pavement and broke three bones in my ankle and severely dislocated it, leading to a surgery and months of recovery. An orthopedic injury is typically a traumatic event. The recovery can elicit many emotions. As a psychotherapist, I was surprised not much has been written on coping with the psychological impact of such an injury and the following recovery. By allowing emotions to arise without judgment, we allow them to move through us. We can also take committed action to make positive changes as...

He shadowed American troops, documenting ferocious firefights, surviving hours in the air with helicopter-gunship crews, and freeze-framing harrowing moments of bravery and despair, exhaustion, and appalling violence in combat zones. Though much of his best work had been shot in the thick of the action, he had come to be haunted by the trauma visited ...
