By Andi Forness greatist.com Tues., May 14, 2019 Raise your hand if you’re the kind of person who tries not to make waves. It can happen at work: you aren’t getting the help you need, so you just do things yourself instead of speaking up. It can happen at home: you pick your partner’s clothes off the floor because it’s just faster — even though you feel a little resentment starting to build. It can even happen with sex: is it truly working for you — or is it just good enough that you put up with it rather than making waves? If any of this sounds familiar, not speaking up may be the result of what I like to label as conflict avoidance.

We asked three Twin Cities region advocates for ending homelessness to guide us when faced with a person who asks for money in public. They are Cathy ten Broeke (CtB), state director of the Minnesota Interagency Council on Homelessness, Robert Lilligren (RL), executive director of Minneapolis’ Native American Community Development Institute, and Jonelle Glubke (JG), program director with the Veterans Association Homeless Programs.

By Kathryn Hudson The Kit Mon., April 29, 2019 I never know how often to wash my hair. I’ve read that it’s good to skip as many washes as possible, but my hair has a tendency to get quite limp after a day or two, maximum. I often resort to wearing it up or using dry shampoo to try to prolong my style, but I’m wondering if I should just wash it every day to freshen it up. Will that actually damage my hair? — Shelley, Oakville There is a good chance this question is also scrawled on the wall of a cave somewhere — painted in symbols by primitive man — because it seems like one of the most fundamental queries asked over and over again by humankind. (Perhaps that’s a slight exaggeration, but the topic does garner over 122 million hits when Googled online, so it seems clear we’re searching for an answer.) I, myself, engage in variations of this conversation several times a day. I have to carefully schedule when I … [Read more...] about Ask The Kit: Do I really need to wash my hair every day?
