How Managers Can Prevent Remote Work From Halting Their Careers

In all honesty, this working from home thing has been pretty nice. I no longer have to get up as early as I used to and the whole commute thing has gone away. Sure, I miss the level of interaction with my coworkers that I used to enjoy in the office, but I still get to see them via Zoom and Teams. However, there is one small problem with our otherwise perfect set up. Our careers might currently be on hold. Is there any way to keep them moving forward while we are all working remotely? Re...

Vu par Ted Lapidus: Very Feminine, Tenacious and Stubborn

The story of Ted Lapidus began in 1929 - little Edmond was born in Paris into the family of a Jewish emigrant from the Russian Empire. He followed in the footsteps of his father, a tailor who kept a small atelier, and after an internship with Christian Dior, he started his own business, opening a tailor shop in the Paris rue Marbeuf in 1951 (with the help of Charles Aznavour, among others).

How to Wear a Turtleneck (Without Looking Like a Dweeb)

It’s a funny thing about the men’s turtleneck. Most male garments which were born from the world of the working class, the military, and/or sports, and then became the clothing choice of rebels in the mid-20th century, still retain a bit of their aura of ruggedness and edge today, even though they can be more than a century removed from their origins and have become thoroughly mainstream. Witness the fact that jeans, leather jackets, and t-shirts, which were first worn by miners, aviators, and ...

What to Do If Your Tongue Gets Stuck to a Flagpole

It can happen to the best of us. You’re hanging around a flagpole with your pals in the freezing cold, and one of them triple-dog-dares you to put your tongue on the pole to see if it sticks. Well, lo and behold, it did stick, so now how do you get it unstuck? I’ve thought about this scenario ever since I was a kid and first saw the cinematic classic A Christmas Story. For some reason I decided that this could happen to me one day and if it did, I needed to know how to get my tongue unstuck fro...

Words of the year 2021: Fritinancy edition

Covid-19 turned into Covid 2021, the U.S. presidency changed hands despite TFG’s efforts to the contrary, and we somehow summoned the energy to invent new words and repurpose old ones. Here are my picks for this year’s keywords; scroll to the bottom for previous years’ lists. And stay tuned for the American Dialect Society’s selection of the word of the year on January 7. My criteria are the ADS’s: words (or “lexical items”—acronyms and phrases appear here, too) that were new or newly promin...

How has your skincare routine changed over the past year?

Phytosurgence Fume Blush Balm Review & Swatches

Fume Phytosurgence Fume Skin Spark Blush Balm ($17.07 for 0.14 oz.) is a dusty pink that seemed to have a warmer, more orange base initially, though it looked slightly less orange and more pink when applied to my cheeks. The texture was lightweight, creamy, and had good glide, which helped the blush apply evenly and blend out with ease on bare skin as well as on top of foundation as it wasn’t prone to lifting it up. It was extremely p...

Warum es gut ist, in deiner Beziehung über deine:n Ex zu sprechen

Lauren war spät dran für ihr Date – und schlecht gelaunt. „Ich hatte den Verdacht, dass er eine schlechte Wahl sein könnte. Er hatte mich vorher einige Male sehr spät nachts angerufen und wirkte ein bisschen zu arrogant“, erzählt mir die 26-Jährige. Trotzdem freute sie sich darüber, jemanden zu treffen, den sie über zwei Ecken schon kannte (er war mit einer ihrer Freundinnen befreundet), anstatt einen Fremden aus einer Dating-App. Sie war noch nicht lange Single, hatte die Apps aber schon jetzt ...

Warum hassen Weihnachtsfilme Singles eigentlich so sehr?

Willie T. Stokes, Kevin McCallister und der Grinch. Was haben diese drei gemeinsam? Ganz einfach: Sie gehören zu den sehr wenigen Weihnachtsfilm-Charakteren, mit denen ich mich identifizieren kann – weil ihre Story nicht damit endet, dass sie sich verlieben. Als Single gehören zu meinen feierlichen Vorbildern also ein sexsüchtiger, alkoholabhängiger Weihnachtsmann, ein kleines, cleveres Kind und Jim Carrey in grünem Latex. Was sagt mir das? Dass mit der Welt der Weihnachtsfilme irgendwas ni...

Maybe England should have picked a sixth right-arm fast-medium bowler

As a parent of young children, we encounter our fair share of repetition. Green bottles, speckled frogs, monkeys on a bed, little men in a flying saucer. Nothing could prepare us for England’s second Test bowling attack though. If there is one thing England have been sure of these last few years, it is that they wanted to tour Australia with a varied attack – fast bowlers, spin, a left-armer. It therefore makes perfect sense that they have picked five right-arm fast-medium bowlers for th...
