Smile at the person opposite you on the train, wish the barista a good day when you get your morning coffee or offer some help to someone who looks like they might need it. It's not a massive amount to ask and the dividends may be great.
Seth Sentry has a problem with science. It has, thus far, failed to provide him with a hoverboard. However, his gripes are pretty minimal when it comes to the barrage of blame that science, medicine and other reputable branches of investigation get from the Instafamous, celebrity chefs and so-called wellness warriors.
I'm not sure why a profession of carers is so bad at looking after its own, why smart intelligent professionals from all areas are comfortable condemning their employees and colleagues to misery.
Ultimately, Howard is right. Because what he is really saying is that in our current status quo, we have about as much chance of keeping the same PM for the next four years as we do have of reaching parity in the workforce.
We are all entitled to personal time and whether you choose to spend that with your children, your friends, a Tinder date or Netflix is irrelevant.

In the workforce, a world that should reject such pursuits, women are sometimes guilty of "pulling up the ladder behind them". And to further distinguish themselves, they fail to mentor, teach or help other women.
Regardless of how you feel about them, the lockout laws reflect a much more sinister problem. This nation needs to work out how to address the growing issues with alcohol-related injury and violence. Until such time, you can guarantee that our toys will continue to be taken away.
