After Isn't Sexy – It's Proof YA Has A Sex Problem

“I am a moth to his flame, and he never hesitates to burn me.”If you’ve read Anna Todd’s After, you know it’s full of lines like this one — lines that are supposed to be romantic, but are actually pretty disturbing. I probably thought getting “burned” by a dude was romantic in high school, when I was looking to pop culture to teach me about sex and love, but I had a fucked-up view of what a healthy relationship involving sex looked like until well into my twenties. I equally blame a lack of Jud...

The Importance of Finding and Creating Demand

--> In 2000, I needed computer programmers in our company more than anything. At the time, however, it was exceedingly difficult to find a good computer programmer. I went through a lot of tough times trying to hire and keep computer programmers. Computer programmers seemed to have their pick of jobs and they would switch employers every few months, as they were offered better and better jobs, more stock options, and other employee perks. One day I hired a programmer and he immediately started w...

Cardi B, You (Probably) Can’t Trademark “Okurrr,” Okay?

The saltiest trademark news in the last week surrounds singer Cardi B’s application to register the marks “Okurr” and “Okurrr,” both slang for “Okay???”–but pronounced in a hip, rolled-r trill, sometimes with a shady tone. Or, as Cardi describes, it: the sound of a “cold pigeon in New York City.” If you haven’t heard it said before, search no further than these humorous and fully-extra renditions by a few popular drag queens: As with most seemingly-overreaching trademark applications, Cardi’s...

Wedding Rules You Can Forgo in 2019 Without Guilt

You’ve heard the traditional wedding rules all of your life. They’re the engagement and wedding rules handed down by generations. Most are throwbacks to a different time and way of life.

The good news is that you can leave many of the old traditions behind and create a wedding that’s completely yours. Does it Have to Be a Diamond?...

Maggie Rogers Inspires Introspection On Debut Album

The world and Pharrell Williams met Maggie Rogers at the same time, effectively. Though she later said she had no idea he would be there, much less that the interaction would be filmed and put on the internet, Pharrell’s reaction to her song “Alaska” went viral; one of the giants of music production told this college student he had zero notes to better her track, “Alaska.” A music sensation was born as the clip made its way through Reddit onto music blogs and Rogers found herself booked to play...

Movies You Won’t Believe Are Based On True Stories

At first glance, the script for War Dogs probably read like an outlandish action comedy.How could a couple of stoner dudes from Miami secure a $300 million contract to supply arms to the U.S. government?

How could the U.S. government be tricked into purchasing decomposing, 40-year-old munitions that were culled from a Communist surplus stockpile or manufactured cheaply in China ...

Sen. Lisa Murkowski Will Resurrect Bill To Protect Indigenous Women Against Violence

Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp Photo: Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call. One of the issues North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp fought to address during her time in Congress was the epidemic of missing and murdered Indigenous women in the United States. Her legislation, Savanna's Act, would improve federal response to the crisis and provide support to tribes, without requiring additional federal funding. The bill passed unanimously in the Senate in November, but was stalled and allowed to expire by ret...

A New Era for Music Made in Berlin: Watch these 12 Great Music Videos

Berlin in 2018 represents Europe’s creative metropolis number one. “Berlin reminds me of what New York was like in the early ‘80s,” Honey Dijon, iconic DJ, and cultural encyclopedia, told Clash in an interview in 2017, “It hasn’t been tainted as bad. It retains its rawness and roughness, it’s really young and still somewhat affordable. So there’s a lot of young artists.” – The European city that attracts musical talent ain’t London no more.

An additional 22 states — along with U.S. territories Puerto Rico and Guam — allow the use of cannabis for medical purposes.Weed, of course, remains illegal at the federal level.

When Will Midterm Election Results Come In? Here's When Polls Close

Tuesday marks the end of perhaps the most consequential midterm election in recent history. To summarize: A record number of women are running for office, plenty of candidates could make history, people participated in early voting at a rate that outpaced previous midterm elections, and Democrats have a chance at flipping the U.S. House of Representatives. It's, well, a lot.That means that the entire nation will be watching Tuesday night to figure out the results. But since all good things come...
