By looking at a problem from multiple angles, you may spot a creative solution you hadn’t considered before. But another approach is to reframe the way you define the problem to begin with. For example, suppose you define your problem as how to get a new job during COVID times. Within that problem definition, you can consider many ways to solve the problem. You could work on your resume, look through job postings, fill out applications, ask around to discover unadvertised jobs, and take plent...

Here Are The Perfect Steps To Follow In a Skincare Routine

When I come home from college, my grandmother always says – Wash your face thoroughly and apply some moisturizer. 16years-old-me used to think, why do I have to spend so much time on such a minor task.  We all go out every day, for college or work. Our skin goes through a lot of harmful bombarding like UV rays, dirt, pollution.  Of course, it’ll react in the form of acne, blackheads, whiteheads on the nose or chin, pimples leaving spots behind.  And if your oily skin produces excessive s...

Linderhof Am Morgen Review

Well, you should go — it's the only castle founded by the Bavarian king Ludwig II and completed during his lifetime. How could an enlightened and refined person like you not pay a visit there? By the way, two other castles, Neuschwanstein and Herrenchiemsee, are also the merit of Ludwig. This is the other European pole o...

Democracy of Style: mazi + zo’s “VOTE” Necklace Makes a Statement

A little box containing a delicate piece of jewelry seems unassuming, but mazi + zo’s “VOTE” necklace is a secret powerhouse that’s anything but passive. Comprised of recycled .925 sterling silver or recycled 14k gold, the “VOTE” necklace strings together four letters that mean almost as much to us in 2020 than they did in the mid-1960s. Voting has become a hotly debated issue over the last several months due to the grave amount of misinformation, needless doubt, and accessibility issues that...

Google is planning to add new 'hub' offices to provide flexibility for employees, and experts say these networks of satellite offices are the future in Silicon Valley

Amazon's office in Boulder, Colorado. Helen H. Richardson/The Denver Post via Getty Images The future of the tech office isn't clustered in Silicon Valley, experts told Business Insider. Instead, tech companies will likely adopt a "hub-and-spoke" model, with satellite offices peppered across the US. In a post-coronavirus era, employees may have a "remote-first" work schedule, and commute to a satellite office when they need to from wherever they live.  Amazon, Apple, and Uber have alre...

Ausdrücken verboten: Das geschah, als ich meine Akne einen Monat in Ruhe ließ

Ich kann mich noch sehr gut daran erinnern, wie ich mir zum allerersten Mal einen Pickel ausdrückte. Ich war etwa zehn Jahre alt und stand auf einem Hocker vor dem Badezimmerspiegel, um die dunkle Beule auf meiner Nase genauer unter die Lupe zu nehmen. Nachdem ich ein wenig daran rumgestupst hatte, versuchte ich es mit energischem Quetschen. Ich weiß heute nicht, was ich mir davon eigentlich erhofft hatte – doch der Mitesser kam raus, und ich war völlig fasziniert. Meine Nase zierte jetzt ein du...

Podcast #651: How to Turn Fear Into Fuel

We typically think of fear as a negative emotion. Something that feels terrible, and not only keeps us away from true danger, but also inhibits us from going after our life’s goals and passions.  Fear can indeed be an unwelcome hindrance, but, my guest today argues, it can also be a powerful propellant and a signpost towards success. His name is Patrick Sweeney, he’s a tech entrepreneur, a university lecturer, a coach and consultant to CEOs, professional athletes, and Navy SEALs, and the auth...

A cricket helmet on an Indian police officer
