Dr. Paul
Business shoe and leisure shoe.

Americans work long hours (We are actually 16th in the world according to a 2015 report). It’s a cultural thing. Perhaps it originates from immigrant people, trying to fashion a new life in a new land. Even the pilgrims had to work hard, just to survive (Of course, there is a lot more to this story than just toil). It goes without saying-- we are an ambitious people. We expect a lot from each other and ourselves. Read more about Work-life balance: The big picture

Dr. Paul
Man with laptop computer.

Increasingly, we are seeing adults (and teens) who are spending vast amounts of time and money looking at pornography on the Internet. Whatever your views may be on the morality of this behavior, these individuals can’t turn off their computers. Is this an addiction? A compulsion? Or what?

The statistics are staggering. Every second, $3000 is spent on Internet pornography. Every second, there are 28,250 Internet users viewing porn. The revenues for the pornography industry are larger than Microsoft, Google, Amazon, EBay, Yahoo, Apple, and Netflix combined! Read more about Internet Pornography: The new addiction?
