    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Robert Bly, one of the most prominent American poets of the last half century and author of the best-selling men’s movement classic “Iron John,” has died. He was 95. His daughter, Mary Bly, said her father died Sunday at his home in Minneapolis after suffering from dementia for 14 years. “Dad had no pain. … His whole family was around him so how much better can you do?” she told The Associated Press. Bly was born and raised in the western Minnesota town of Madison. In 1968, he won the National Book Award for his second poetry collection, “The Light Around the Body,” a book of Vietnam War protest poems. Bly donated his $1,000 prize money to the draft resistance movement. But Bly found his greatest fame for a work of prose called, “Iron John: A Book About Men.” His meditation on modern masculinity was released in 1990, and spent more than two years on the New York Times bestseller list. Mary Bly said funeral services would be private. She urged fans to send memorial donations to...
    A previously unseen pair of 'highly personal and private' lockets exchanged between Charles Dickens and his sister-in-law are set to go on display in London next month. The author was 23 when he met his future wife Catherine Hogarth, then 19, in Fulham, west London in 1835. At the same time, he was also introduced to her two sisters, Mary, who was 14, and Georgina, who was six.  Some speculate Mary became the true love of his life and the inspiration behind some of his most famous characters, with Charles giving Mary a locket containing a stand of his own hair. She tragically died just three years later, and Georgina gave Dickens a similar pendant with Mary's hair inside in 1837. Both are set to go on display at the Charles Dickens Museum next month.  A pair of 'highly personal and private' lockets exchanged between Charles Dickens and his sister-in-law are set to go on display in London next month Speaking to The Guardian, Louisa Price, curator of the exhibition, said: '[These lockets] tell a story that had a direct influence on at...
    (CNN)For some, the decision to sidestep coverage of former police officer Derek Chauvin's murder trial is a matter of self-preservation. Having to choose between bearing witness to George Floyd's death and shielding oneself against secondary trauma spotlights the steep costs of systemic racism for African Americans, and the country as a whole. In her book "Black Fatigue: How Racism Erodes the Mind, Body and Spirit" Mary-Frances Winters, founder of the diversity, equity and inclusion consultancy The Winters Group, outlines a stark array of facts and figures that illuminate the dire consequences of "living while Black" in the United States. Mary-Frances Winters' "Black Fatigue: How Racism Erodes the Mind, Body and Spirit" defines the impact of systemic racism on the physical and mental health of Black people across generations. By tallying measures of economics, criminal justice, education, and physical and mental health, Winters revealed how far we have not come toward realizing true equity. In her chapter "Then Is Now" Winters wrote, "Black households have the lowest median household income and net worth of any demographic group, and those measures of...

    LONDON – A sculpture celebrating Mary Wollstonecraft as the mother of feminism has attracted criticism even before it was unveiled. Artist Maggi Hambling said the sculpture in London “celebrates the spirit of Mary Wollstonecraft,” the author of the 18th-century treatise “A Vindication of the Rights of Woman.” The artwork, cast in silvered bronze, features a small nude female figure emerging from a large abstract mass of female forms. The sculpture was unveiled Tuesday after a decade of campaigning and fundraising, but many critics took to Twitter to question why it had to feature a naked female figure. Writer Caitlin Moran, among others, asked why male intellectuals and historical figures haven't been celebrated with nude statues. Defending the sculpture, Hambling said that it wasn't meant to be a “historical likeness" and that the figure at the top of the artwork "is open and challenging the world.” “Clothes define people … As she’s Everywoman, I’m not defining her in any particular clothes,” she said. “It’s not a conventional heroic or heroinic likeness of Mary Wollstonecraft. It’s a sculpture about now,...
    Donald Trump is a very obvious person. He is the equivalent of a character in a comic book with a huge thought bubble over his head that everyone can read. But Trump goes even further than that. Because he has no internal censor, Trump shares his private thoughts and impulses with the world without shame or fear of consequences. Through his public behavior Trump has repeatedly shown that he is mentally unwell. His apparent pathologies include malignant narcissism, delusions of grandeur, an attraction to violence, sadism, a lack of impulse control, utter disregard for rules and norms, and a pathological tendency to lie. In sum, our president can be reasonably described as a psychopath or a sociopath. The most recent examples of Trump’s mentally unwell behavior, among many include his obsession with his popularity and “ratings” when more than 150,000 Americans are dead from the coronavirus. His easily-injured sense of self is more important than showing any care or concern for the suffering of others. Because Trump is incapable of empathy, the lives of the American people mean nothing to him. Trump “cares” about his...
    Nick Damore is determined to set the record straight about his father. The 34-year-old is currently working on a documentary about patriarch Leo Damore, People magazine reported on Monday. The project is in post-production and the middle-school English teacher hopes to release it within the year with his partner, filmmaker Matt Cascella. Leo Damore, a former reporter and author who wrote several books about the Kennedys, died in 1995 from a self-inflicted gunshot to his head. He was 66. The elder Damore's books include the ‘80s bestseller, “Senatorial Privilege: The Chappaquiddick Coverup” and “Cape Cod Years of John F. Kennedy,” among others.

Kennedy’s mistress Mary Pinchot Meyer, who was shot and killed in 1964. However, Nick Damore has never found the manuscript in question. The last time Damore saw his father was...
    Following the release of the bombshell book written by Donald Trump's niece - Mary Trump - and for her calls for the President to resign, Trump's Art of the Deal co-author has given his perspective on the Trump family in a stunning interview. Speaking to MNSBC's 'The Beat', Tony Schwartz backed Mary Trump's claims that her uncle is a psychopath and sociopath not fit to lead, saying that the way his father raised him has made him emotionless. 'I feel great kinship with Mary Trump,' Schwartz said in the televised interview. 'Having observed Trump for nearly my entire adult life – that he is indeed a psychopath or a sociopath.   'It’s fascinating to see her confirm and deepen many of the observations that I’ve made over the last four years and most recently when I wrote about him as "The Psychopath in chief."

    MARY Trump has little contact with the president and his family for the last 20 years, according to Donald Trump Jr. Trump Jr. has cast doubt that the president's niece, and author of a tell-all book about him, was present at an extended family gathering in 2017. 5 mary trum Donald Trump Jr. claims he hasn't seen Mary Trump for more than 20 yearsCredit: Getty Images - Getty 5 He took to Twitter on WednesdayCredit: Twitter "If she was there I don’t remember seeing her, and other than possibly that one large family gathering, I don’t believe I’ve seen her in approximately 20 years," Trump Jr. tweeted Wednesday.

Donald Trump's press office have dismissed his niece's claims, saying the book was published "in the author’s own financial self-interest". 5 Mary Trump is the daughter of the president's late brother, FredCredit:...
    Tony Schwartz, co-author of The Art of the Deal, joined CNN’s Brian Stelter Sunday to discuss what he thinks drives President Donald Trump psychologically — an issue raised in a new book from his niece Mary Trump. Stelter opened the segment reviewing what Mary Trump wrote about her uncle’s narcissism and what else she thinks might be wrong with him. He said that while people see typos from Trump or some of his confused comments in interviews, “Mary Trump is suggesting something much deeper, much more serious.” He brought on Schwartz and asked him why there’s “fear” in the media from discussing the president’s mental fitness. “I think that the press and America as a culture has been incredibly slow to take a look at what influences people internally, at what the shaping influences are in their lives, the unconscious biases and blind spots and belief systems that grow out of your early experience,” Schwartz said. “I think as a consequence, the press has really abdicated a role that is absolutely critical right now.” He continued on to say...
