5 Items You Should Always Buy Generic

Buying name brand was the way to go once upon a time. Walking into a grocery store, you could easily spot the brands you know and trust.

Now, there are numerous generic brands available and many of the products they produce are the same quality as those name brands, maybe even better. Too bad many of us aren’t taking advant...

Taking Up "Hair" Space: 8 Black Women Talk About What Natural Hair Means to Them

Every Black woman has a unique relationship with her hair. I was like a lot of my peers in the early 2000s who grew up going to the beauty salon with our moms to get a relaxer and a roller set so we could have straight hair that was easier and "more manageable" - as we were told. I was almost content with this way of life (despite the fact that over time the chemicals were damaging to my hair), until one vivid moment. I remember being 13, walking with my mom and passing this woman who walked oh...

Your Nails Can Harbor Bacteria, Too - Here's How to Keep Them Clean

Washing your hands often is a key element to staying germ-free, but none of that matters if you're not also making sure you're sanitizing your nails. Your nails can also harbor bacteria and, if you're a nail-biter and/or frequently eat with your fingers (pizza, anyone?), those bacteria can easily be transferred to your mouth. According to Purvi Parikh, an allergy and infectious disease specialist with New York University's Langone Medical Center, germs transferring from the hands to the mouth ...

Haare selber schneiden: Profi-Tipps für alle Haartypen

Das letzte Mal, als ich mir die Haare selbst geschnitten habe, war ich 16. Es waren Sommerferien und mir war sehr langweilig. Also hab ich mir kurzerhand die Küchenschere geholt und schnitt meine langen Haare auf Schulterlänge. Dass das Ergebnis nicht einmal ansatzweise so war, wie ich es mir in meinem Kopf ausgemalt hatte, muss ich dir wahrscheinlich nicht sagen. Meine Seiten hatten verschiedene Längen und hinten hingen komische Zipfel von den Strähnen. Alles in allem, war mein DIY-Langeweilep...

General James Mattis on "Why Read?"

I've always wanted to say something very direct when an acquaintance or a client asked why I read so much, but I was always a bit too cautious to verbalize my real beliefs out loud. But if a prominent, knowledgeable person  supports my beliefs publicly, I'll happily repeat them. I have, however, gotten to the place over the past ten years when someone asks why I read the NYTimes or a magazine like the New Yorker, I can be fairly direct. It usually comes out like, "look, there's no wa...
