Effective July 15, British porn consumers will be required entrust their sexual tastes to private companies' badly secured databases

Back when David Cameron was Prime Minister, he took advice from Patrick Rock (later revealed to be a a trafficker in images depicting the abuse of children) on how to stop children from seeing internet pornography. The solution they arrived at was bananas: every adult service in the UK would have to verify the identity of every user they had, assuring themselves that anyone who tried to look at porn was over 18. As the unworkability of this idea became more obvious, the UK government tried ...

Inside The Trader Joe's Black Market — Where Everything Bagel Seasoning Costs $22

You may associate Trader Joe’s with Hawaiian shirts but, paradoxically, the beloved grocery chain doesn’t have any locations in Hawaii. The closest store is a few thousand miles away in California. Thus, Marli Arneson, a 25-year-old from Oahu craving Trader Joe’s ginger turmeric tea, did what many of us might: She went on Amazon and bought a box for $9.74, assuming the two retailers had a partnership. But no. It was only later that Arneson learned her sought-after tea hadn’t come directly from ...

Fashion designer reviving indigenous languages one garment at a time

Brandi Morin is contributing to Canada’s ‘indigenous renaissance’ and helping to fight the decline of the Cree and Mohawk languagesLike many indigenous people in Canada, Brandi Morin did not grow up speaking the language of her ancestors – the result of decades of government policies meant to strip the country’s aboriginal people of their identity.Those policies mean that although nearly 2 million people in Canada identify as indigenous, only 263,000 can speak an indigenous language.

Meet 6 Gen Z Activists That Are Setting An Extraordinary Example

At first glance, Gen Z may appear to be like every generation of youth before them: unflinchingly determined, stubborn, idealistic, and clinging to a touch of naiveté. But look closer, and you’ll see that they’re writing books, starting businesses, and presenting TED Talks as early as the age of 12; it's clear that calling them ambitious is an understatement. “You cannot ignore us, and you can’t stop us,” says Nadya Okamotoa, founder of PERIOD, the nonprofit that provides period packs and suppl...

We've Got A Spring Cleaning Checklist For Every Type Of Person (Yes, Even Slackers)

Spring has arrived, and brought with it more sunlight, new flowers shooting up from the ground, and a pretty noticeable layer of dust, dirt, and grime in the corners of our apartments. Yes, in addition to it being time to begin drinking on rooftops and bringing home colorful bunches of tulips, it's also time for spring cleaning. Depending on who you are, spring cleaning may be just as sweet as the sunshine and flowers. But for others, it can be enough to make you want winter to stick around for...

Employee engagement vs. happiness at work – what should companies focus on?

I met a manager recently who claimed in no uncertain terms that companies should forget all about employee happiness and focus only on engagement.  He argued that people can be happy at work without performing well, whereas employee engagement leads directly to better performance. I’ve actually heard this claim a few times recently, but it is still wrong. In this article we’ll look at why. But first let’s define the two terms. Both can be defined in many different ways, which will confuse any di...

Deeper Meanings

I have a woman I love dearly and we operate on 100 percent honesty. We have an amazing relationship and the sex is amazing as well except for one little thing. Due to our open honesty I’d like to be able to tell her I enjoy anal stimulation but I’m not gay. My ex got me into it and I love it but I don’t know how to introduce it without her assuming I’m gay which I fear she already has her suspicions about. (From Canada) If your relationship is an open and honest one — and your partner is as conn...

Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate For Change

Chloe Grace Moretz Is Ready To Scare The Sh*t Out Of You

Chloe Grace Moretz has been acting since she was an adolescent, and she’s got the poise and wiser-than-her-years disposition to prove it. When she’s waxing poetic about the “cacophony of scenes and macabre moments” in her latest film, a horror thriller called Greta in theaters Friday, you almost forget how young Moretz is. Then, in the same breath, she’s gushing about Britney Spears — she’s got stickers of the pop star plastered to her phone — and she sounds like every other twentysomething who...

Ryan Reynolds' Favorite Smell Is Douglas Firs & Canadian Rain

In countless interviews and media appearances, Ryan Reynolds has been described as charming and relatable, the kind of guy whose temperament is more telling of his native Canada than Hollywood. But as I waited to meet him in the sleek, minimalist penthouse of a modern high-rise in downtown Manhattan, I felt like I was on my way to interview an ex-NASA employee who was prepared to reveal that, yes, the moon landing was an orchestrated hoax by the government — not charming, relatable actor Ryan R...

Did You Hear About The $88 Off $100 at Sephora Deal?

88OFF was apparently a Sephora coupon code circulating around forums and social media that actually worked! What did it get you? $100 worth of makeup for $12! Yup! That’s right! Spend $100 and get $88 off your order at Sephora Canada (I don’t believe the code was available on the US website).

How To: Date a Kayaker

I have always believed in the power of continuing education. Through a double major in accounting and economics as an undergrad, and then two years worth of studying for my certified financial planner designations, I’ve spent a lot of my life learning.
