A resourceful student turned to Tinder for help studying for her midterm

A student struggling with math turned to Tinder for last minute help.  College sophomore Maddi McMaster has taken calculus twice, and she was at her breaking point right before her midterm. "My strongest subject is definitely English," she said over Twitter DM. "I've always been terrible at math, so God knows why I chose an engineering degree when I first came to college."  She had "procrastinated with studying," and the high school junior who usually helped her out with homework wasn'...

A Database of Paper Airplane Designs: Hours of Fun for Kids & Adults Alike

Though we can trace the history of paper aircraft back 2000 years to the Chinese and their kites, and into the 19th century with the French and their imaginary airships, the origin of the modern paper airplane is shrouded in mystery. A San Diego Reader article placed the birth somewhere in 1910. By 1915, most American kids were already tormenting teachers. And Jack Northrup used paper models to work on aerodynamics at Lockheed in the 1930s, but even that doesn’t do much to explain how su...

The Best Pore Refining Serums to Transform Your Skin

Pores? What pores?We all dream of smooth, flawless, radiant skin, but if you have large, obvious pores, they can unfortunately detract from your otherwise well maintained face. If you take good care of your skin (AKA you follow a skincare routine) but still find yourself with large pores, the solution to your problem may be as simple as adding a pore refining serum to your routine. Since pores are prone to getting clogged or irritated by dirt, leftover makeup, and dead skin cells, a serum can im...

The First House Powered by Coffee

Since 2006, Dunkin' Donuts has used the tagline "America Runs on Dunkin'," presumably alluding to the coffee and donuts that get millions of Americans through each morning.

Above, Dunkin' presents a tiny home powered by biofuel made from spent coffee grounds, a process masterminded by a company called Blue Marble Biomaterials.

“Sondor” is a made-up internet neologism that captures the fleeting but poignant sense of “the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own — populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness.” I think about this word often when I see my patients.

Why I Started Sewing & How Sewing Has Changed My View of Fashion

Let the revolution begin!Having been sewing my own clothes for a few years now, I'm used to getting the same responses when I tell someone I've made the clothes I'm wearing. It's usually surprise, followed by some sort of compliment. Yet sometimes, someone will ask "Why?" And that’s a perfectly understandable response. While home sewing used to be the norm not even fifty years ago, the rise of fast fashion has made it practically obsolete. Making your own clothing can be time consuming, stressfu...

Freddie Mercury’s Final Days: Watch a Poignant Montage That Documents the Last Chapter of the Singer’s Life

The “biopic” has delivered dramatic retellings of famous figures’ lives since the very earliest days of cinema. We hunger, it seems, to see more-or-less-faithful approximations of our idols stride across the screen, enacting events witnessed by millions and those hidden away from everyone. In the case of popular musicians, these tend to involve epic alcohol and drug use, tumultuous love affairs, stadium-sized triumphs and the crushing defeats of falling out of cultural favor. Such scenes...

Entertaining disagreements tend to arise from such discussions, usually around traditionally divisive comestibles like anchovies, cilantro, brussel sprouts, or the Japanese dish of fermented soybeans known as natto.
