Said Caroline Dawnay, who was, for a while, the literary agent to Charles Webb, quoted in "Charles Webb, Elusive Author of ‘The Graduate,’ Dies at 81/His novel was turned into an era-defining movie, but he was never comfortable with its success, and he chose to live in poverty" (NYT).At his second wedding to [Eve] Rudd — they married in 1962, then divorced in 1981 to protest the institution of marriage, then remarried around 2001 for immigration purposes — he did not give his bride a ring, becau...

Clionadh Patina & Gargoyle Jewelled Multichrome Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Patina Clionadh Patina Jewelled Multichrome Eyeshadow ($19.00 for 0.05 oz.) has a blackened base with a metallic, multichrome finish that shifted between warmer, chartreuse green, olive green, emerald green, and green-leaning teal. Per the brand, it is supposed to shift between “gold-lime-emerald-turquoise.” I felt like I detected all of the shifts as the brand described, but the shifts are subtle as the gradient is more natural (li...

Food Logging

If you’d like to raise your awareness about what you’re actually eating and how it affects you, food logging is a simple and effective way to do this. Six weeks ago I decided to start keeping a log of everything I ate in a small notebook. I also keep track of calories. I wanted to raise my awareness of what I was eating and how calorically dense each meal was. Computing the calories is easy. I use a small kitchen scale to weigh quantities of foods, and then I just ask a nearby smart device...

Protecting Remote Workers’ Productivity and Performance

Practically overnight the vast majority of office workers became remote workers when social distancing measures put in place in March to slow the spread of the Covid-19 virus dramatically changed the way we go about our days.

Perfumed Horoscope: June 29 - July 5

  This week includes a pattern that is commonly referred to as the “Billionaire's aspect” (Pluto Jupiter Conjunction.) For me personally it is a strange concept to sit on so much wealth while every 10 seconds a child under 5 dies of hunger.

How the language we use determines how we view ourselves, each other and the world around us

For Sobia Ali-Faisal, words aren't just a string of sounds that escape people's mouths, used to communicate with one another. "Words determine how we view the world," she said. "Language is very, very powerful."Ali-Faisal, who spent three years as a lecturer in UPEI's psychology department, said she uses language as a methodology in her area of study, which explores sexual health in the Muslim community and sexual violence prevention.She's also a co-founding member of Black, ...

How Trump’s Cruelty Fueled Padma Lakshmi’s Fight for Immigrants

I’m an immigrant—and I’m not alone. Padma Lakshmi opens each episode of her new Hulu series Taste the Nation with that mantra, and it’s one that’s powering the food author and TV host during the Trump administration’s all-out war on immigrants, from the “Muslim ban” and separating children from their families at the U.S.-Mexico border to the recent suspension of immigrant-worker visas through 2021. “I find this disconnect between the policies that are made in Washington and how they actually aff...
