Oh my gosh I haven't done one of these posts for so long - I really am not the kind of blogger who can get into any type of routine or schedule posts in advance, I seem to write on a whim depending on the mood I am in. Anyway today I feel like sharing some really amazing reads from the interwebs that I have seen this week - its a long weekend so the perfect time for some interesting reading!

I have always been a real housewives tragic. This week Melissa and Joe Gorga released a book based on how they believe they have make their marriage work, "In our marriage, Joe is always the man, doing masculine things. I'm the woman, and I do the female things, including housework". I haven't read the book so can't really comment but here is a post from the Jezebel that states that the book advocates marital rape and a post written by Lauren that looks at some of the messages in the book that some people may be able to relate to.

When I heard that the US Government was shutting down I had no idea what it meant. This article by the Guardian explains it in layman's terms. I also found this article written from the American media's perspective good.

This isn't an article but a link to the Four Corners episode on assisted suicide, 'My Own Choice'. This was one of the most moving pieces of journalism I have ever seen - an honest and raw account of one man's wish to die after living with a debilitating disease for most of his life. It was followed by this article about a man who was killed by medical euthanasia after suffering from unbearable psychological suffering.

This statistical profile on Canberra women based on the last census is really interesting - higher chance of breast cancer, most likely to have a natural birth and other facts.

Love this amazing visual on why coffee and tea is good for you - if red wine was there too I would be set!

Have a great weekend and as always please link me up with anything that has got you thinking this week!

  2. I don't read enough thought provoking articles. But great links :)

  3. I needed to read that article on the us government as I really didn't understand what was going on.

  4. I just read that Jezebel post and my mind is blown. Joe sounds so controlling and she seems to roll over an take it. That is not how a relationship should work. I'm stunned!
