Best Birthday Gift Ideas For Women in 2020

While getting gifts is great, so is giving them. In fact, giving gifts can actually result in more satisfaction and better happiness from the act than getting a gift. One of the best things about giving gifts is seeing the happiness on the faces of your friends and family members. While anything can be given as a gift, many gifts are unfortunately quite boring. There is nothing inherently wrong with getting someone a boring or expected gift, but sometimes, you may want to spice it up. O...

A Cop’s Confessions

A friend shared this with me. I think it’s a pretty powerful essay from an insider’s perspective: Confessions of a Former Bastard Cop You may also find the comments on that piece interesting as well – many of them reinforce and back up the ideas.

Lawyer With Lost Pants Suspended For $67 Million Lawsuit

A lawyer with lost pants has been suspended for 90 days for his $67 million dollar lawsuit against his dry cleaner. The suspension apparently concludes a saga that goes back well over 10 years. We all have our favorite stuff, and apparently this lawyer was no different and was not taking “yes” for an answer – even refusing offers of judgment of up to $12,000 for the lost pants. This should be a teachable moment for lawyers and clients alike. Before engaging in sartorial surliness, one must take ...

R de Capucci by Roberto Capucci

Pulling out another fragrance from the closet for the “Vintage Fragrances” column, I had no idea how huge a layer of Italian fashion and perfumery history would open up to me with the R de Capucci fragrance. Roberto Cappucci became one of those Italian designers who, after the Second World War, began to define the face of Italian fashion. In 1950, twenty-year-old Roberto opened his first bout...

Patchouli Scents for Those Who Don’t Like Patchouli

  The usual charge against patchouli for those with a prepossession against the leaf is  that its damp and thick personality is overbearingly heavy and cloying. Often this response roots from negative hippie connotations cemented on cheap patchouli-flavoured incense sticks mingled with the sillage of rotten mud from soggy and reckless 60s and 70s music festivals. In the fold are Reminiscence’... Read full article: Patchouli Scents for Those Who Don’t Like Patchouli from Fragrantica Perfumes an...

Have you ever put together your own eyeshadow palette?

Yes, definitely! I haven’t really put one together in a cohesive manner in a long time, though. I usually have all my singles arranged by color and/or finish (sometimes I keep all the mattes together, then organized by color) rather than by a cohesive theme. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

HR Policy for Criminal Background Checks

A criminal background check is required in cases when an individual or organization needs to investigate any potential illegal and criminal activities, including violent or sexual offenses, embezzlement, fraud or felony before making a decision about employing an individual.

Coronavirus Vaccine Types Explained In Simple Terms

One of the many unknowns about SARS-CoV-2 is how we might become immune to it. When you get infected with viruses, your immune system fights back by producing proteins called antibodies. These stick around for the long haul, and your body is prepared to churn out more of them if you encounter the pathogen again. Viruses vary widely in terms of the immune response they elicit. While vaccine development can take years, researchers are not starting from scratch to develop a COVID-19 vaccine. Past r...

Why Every Man Should Be Strong

With our archives now 3,500+ articles deep, we’ve decided to republish a classic piece each Friday to help our newer readers discover some of the best, evergreen gems from the past. This article was originally published in August 2014. When I first started the Art of Manliness, I didn’t put too much stock in physical strength as an important component of manhood. Strength of character, sure, but physical strength was more of a secondary pursuit. Maybe it was because I started AoM partly to get ...
