New film ‘Bottega Veneta: Men’ examines identity and clothes.

“You can be whatever you want, can’t you?” asks English artist Dick Jewell at the open of Bottega Veneta: Men, the short film from Daniel Lee, creative director of the Italian fashion house, and filmmaker Tyrone Lebon. That question, along with others, centers the project’s exploration of what exact qualities make a man.

Men is Lee’s first film since joining Bottega Veneta in 2018, and features Jewell alongside London musician Obongjayar, English producer and MC Tricky, Swedish singer-songwriter Neneh Cherry, Irish actor Barry Keoghan, Scottish dancer Michael Clark, the mysterious young Roman, English painter George Rouy, and Italian-born Richard Bolle, who is the principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre.

Throughout the film, its subjects confront traditional notions of masculinity, which they present as limiting and even damaging. “In my youth, I’d never seen men make physical contact apart from punching each other,” Clark says wearing an all-black Bottega

Why COVID-19 Hits Men Harder Than Women

Nearly 38 million people worldwide have been infected by the coronavirus since the start of the pandemic. And it turns out that men are faring worse than women in the battle against COVID-19.

At the height of New York’s coronavirus crisis, the number of deaths among men was nearly double that of women. Throughout the U.S., the statistics aren’t quite as startling, but men still make up the majority (54 percent) of all COVID-19 deaths, even though women account for a larger share of confirmed cases, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). And in certain age groups, the gap is even wider.

Among adults ages 40 to 49, men account for 69 percent of COVID-19 deaths; and in 50- to 64-year-olds, they make up 66 percent of deaths. Men of all ages are also more likely than women to require

Men got 3 times more promotions than women

Working mothers are being disportionately affected by the coronavirus pandemic — and experts fear it could have a significant impact on their financial future.

From job losses to career downsizing, women are feeling the hit.

When it comes to promotions, they are also being left behind: 34% of men working remotely with children at home said they received a promotion, versus 9% of women in the same situation, according to an August study by software company Qualtrics and theBoardlist, which focuses on gender parity in the boardroom. The study of 1,051 salaried U.S. employees was conducted July 9-13.

In addition, 26% of men with children at home said they received a pay raise while working remotely, compared to 13% of women with children at home.

Is Meaningfulness Different for Women and for Men?

Meaning in life at large is often distinguished from the sensation or experience of meaning in life. For example, if a hypothetical Mother Teresa were to sense or experience her life as meaningless (because, say, she was a perfectionist and felt she should have saved many more lives than she did), we might disagree and think that she evaluated the meaningfulness of her life wrongly. We may hold that Mother Teresa’s life was in fact meaningful, even if we accept that it is true that she didn’t experience her life as such.

Likewise, if someone sensed his life as meaningful because he helped to oppress a certain minority, again we would probably hold that although it is true, as a matter of an empirical, psychological fact, that he sensed his life as meaningful, his life wasn’t meaningful overall.

If we accept the above, then there is more to a meaningful

Women Are Better Than Men at Wearing Masks and Following Coronavirus Precautions, Study Finds

Getty

In most states, people are required to wear a mask in public places to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. But women do a far better job of wearing masks than men, a new study found.

Women are also more likely than men to follow all COVID-19 precautions, like washing hands, staying home and social distancing. Plus, they’re more likely to follow news about the virus from medical experts, their governor, social media and by reading about how other countries have handled the pandemic — and in turn, experience anxiety and alarm.

For the study, published in the journal Behavioral Science & Policy, researchers at New York University and Yale University surveyed 800 people about their COVID-19 habits, counted mask-wearers on the street over two days and analyzed Americans’ movements with smartphone data.

Women May Be More Likely To Get Anxiety From Occasional Cannabis Use Than Men, Study Finds

Cannabis is a complicated drug when it comes to anxiety. While some report that cannabis makes them feel more relaxed, others find that it can cause heightened anxiety, paranoia, and restlessness. Research tells us that these differences can be related to a variety of factors, such as the dose or the type of cannabis used. 

Now researchers are pointing to another factor that could be important in whether cannabis causes or relieves anxiety – biological sex. According to a new study from John Hopkins University, women may be more likely than men to get anxiety-related symptoms from occasional cannabis use. 

The researchers on this study were looking to see if there were any notable differences between men and women when it came to the side effects of occasional cannabis use. They were also interested in exploring this in the context of non-smoked
