Most of us can list three or four people that make it difficult for us to keep our composure throughout the day, plus all the anonymous despicable people who cut us off in traffic, in lines, in stores, and pretty much everywhere we go.

It’s important to identify those who leave you feeling demeaned, de-energized and disrespected on a regular basis, because everyone - including we - under the wrong conditions can be temporary assholes.

Here are some strategies to help you cope with abusive behavior from people in your environment:

  • Don’t take it personally: People might have their reasons to be who they are, and none of it has to do with you!
  • Decide that you’re going to find the asshole hilarious: This one it’s best to keep you for yourself— but this can help you reduce the stress!
  • Create physical or emotional distance between yourself and the rude person. For example, sit as far away from them as possible or mute/block them if it’s on social media.
  • Be nice to the asshole: Be as pleasant and composed as possible. Don’t react to or otherwise you’ll encourage their behavior.

Sometimes it’s fairly easy to get rid of a rude person. First, consider how much power you have over them - sometimes it’s easy to remove a rude person from a situation. If you don’t have a lot of power there, look for outlets to talk about it (some people might be relieved that they’re not the only one who’s noticed it, and together you might be able to find a solution to it!)

Rude People Survival Guide

For the first time in their history, Boeing sent out a tripulated rocket called ‘Starliner’ on Dec 20, 2019 as part of a big test to be the first American company to take astronauts into space for more than 10 years. The spacecraft launched from Cape Canaveral at Kennedy Space Center headed for the International Space Station (ISS).

The Starliner launched unmanned, and inside was an anthropometric test device - a dummy with more than a dozen sensors to measure the astronaut’s full face. The mission was set out to dock the rocket with the space station on Dec 21, but it didn’t achieve its intended orbit after launching, making it impossible to complete its mission.

NASA gave Boeing nearly $5 billion to develop Starliner, which was built to carry as many as five astronauts. This was intended to be one of the final tests before the spacecraft flied actual people, but the company still expects it will still be able to test many of the Starliner’s system while the capsule is in space, and being able to bring it back to Earth.

The failure of this mission is the second setback that Boeing has suffered in 2019, after two fatal crashes of its 737 Max commercial airplanes killed 346 people - resulting in millions of dollars in losses and the suspension of production of its bestselling aircraft for the next months. This also means a blow for NASA’s intensions to send back astronauts to the space stations.

Prehistoric times

The Marcel Cinematic Universe (MCU) Phase 4 officially kicks off this summer with its first feature film ‘Black Widow’. Set between the events of Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, Black Widow will tell the story of how the former Russian spy, portrayed by Scarlett Johansson, became an Avenger.

Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow has to fight against a dangerous conspiracy tied to her dark past before becoming an Avenger. While being hunted, Natasha revisits the relationships left behind before joining with S.H.I.E.L.D. Not much is known about the plot, but one thing is for sure: the film will certainly be action-packed with great special effects and an epic music score!

Black Widow is scheduled to be released on May 1, 2020 in the US, and will also star actors Florence Pugh, Ray Winstone and Rachel Weisz. The film is directed by Cate Shortland, who directed dramas like 2012’s ‘Lore’ and the Australian-French psychological thriller ‘Berlin Syndrome’

What’s next for MCU Phase 4? For a change, this is the first phase to include television series as part of its main storyline, with Marvel Studios already producing several shows for the streaming service Disney+ in addition to the feature films. Some of the announced titles include ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ with Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, WandaVision - featuring Elizabeth Olsen and the awaited ‘Loki’, starring the popular Tom Hiddleston.

How close is Mars to Become Humanity’s Home?

Mars has always attracted the attention of the media as well as the scientific community as a potential expansion target for humankind. In the scenario of a potential worldwide fallout, or just for colonizing purposes, scientists have always looked at Mars as a “second home” within the solar system and studied its soil and atmosphere to learn if it’s possible to live there.

Scientists have found that Mars and Earth are actually very different planets when it comes to temperature, size and atmosphere, but their geological processes surprisingly similar:

While Mars is only about half of Earth’s diameter, both have roughly the same amount of dry land surface area - only because more than two-thirds of the Earth’s surface is covered by water - a somewhat important element for human survival. Although water may have once existed on Mars’ surface, it disappeared long ago or is found frozen on the planet’s north polar caps.

Another essential element for human life (or roughly any life on Earth) is oxygen, which Mars’ atmosphere contains only 1%, compared to Earth’s 21%. The atmosphere is also a lot thinner than Earth’s, allowing cosmic radiation to hit the surface unimpeded - potentially damaging any form of life on the planet.

So, let’s say it’s difficult, if not impossible, to find any colonies on Mars’ surface…but what if we did? Well, humans would have to celebrate New Year’s Eve every 687 days, adapt to Mars’ average temperature of -81 degrees (compared to Earth’s 57 degrees) and put up with a gravity of 0.37% compared of the Earth’s!
