What Connects Vivekananda and Jamsetji Tata? A Sea Voyage That Changed India!

“Rooted in the past, full of pride in India’s prestige, Vivekananda was yet modern in his approach to life’s problems, and was a kind of bridge between the past of India and her present.” – Jawaharlal Nehru The year was 1893. On May 31, aboard a steamer that sailed from Yokohama to Vancouver, two great Indians met for the first time. One was an industrialist who would go on to become one of India’s greatest visionaries, Jamsetji Tata. The other was a monk who would take India’s spiritual tradit...

Are You a Value Creator or Value Extractor?

--> When I was in my third year of college, I applied to a special accelerated program at the University of Chicago Business School, which would have allowed me to graduate from business school and complete my undergraduate degree in a total of five years–instead of the six years this normally would have required. At the time I was a very good student and I had also been running an asphalt business for the previous several years. I had started the business from scratch and believed that I would ...

These Movies That Will Remind You What It Truly Means To Be Cold

Photo: Courtesy of Buena Vista Pictures Distribution; Illustrated by Mallory Heyer. The Weeknd can't feel his face. You can't feel your face, your toes, or your fingers, and you're fairly certain that your ears now resemble two frozen Jimmy Dean sausage patties. Welcome to winter, everyone!Unless you're off to Gstaad for a spot of skiing with Mitzi and Lance, there's really only way to get through the sub-zero temps and slippery surfaces: a good old-fashioned movie night, served up with a ro...

Trap Glazed: We Made R. Kelly A Predator

Update: From January 3 to January 6, Lifetime aired a documentary called Surviving R. Kelly, which catapulted the controversial rapper and all the troubling allegations against him back into the spotlight. The following story was originally published July 26, 2019.On Monday, R. Kelly released a 19-minute song. Let the absurdity of that sink in. Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised as this is the same man who dragged his R&B opera, “Trapped in the Closet,” out for three parts, 33 “chapters,” and a ...

Shake Things Up, Do What’s Best for You, and Be Grateful

Several years ago, in the few days before Christmas and New Year’s Eve, I went home from Los Angeles to Detroit to see my family. At the time, I was practicing law and also working as a law professor. I had brought a bunch of final exams home with me to grade and sat there grading papers and tallying up my students’ final grades for the class for a week or so. I was not having a good week. I had been working nonstop without a vacation for probably more than two years while practicing law. During...

7 Tattoo Trends You're About To See Everywhere In 2019

Long before Dr. Woo, JonBoy, and their A-list clientele made dainty white dots and tiny crosses mainstream news, tattoos were already deeply ingrained in the fabric of history, discovered on the bodies of Egyptian mummies and an Austrian-Italian iceman now known as Ötzi. In those times, thousands of years ago, tattooing was thought to be used therapeutically, a kind of early form of acupuncture; today, it's much more popular for creating decorative body art.Still, Ötzi and his pre-Common Era co...

Do Not Allow Others to Hold You Back from Success

--> Imagine you are a doctor working in a small clinic in the suburbs of Chicago. You are surrounded by uninspired doctors who are happy going back and forth to work each day in exchange for a salary. You, in contrast, have no interest in money and are concerned with curing a fatal heart disease. In fact, you have been working on curing this disease for the past 15 years. You talk about the importance of curing this fatal heart disease to everyone you meet. You have a giant library at home of te...

Michelle Obama’s Post-White House Fashion Is Proof Of How Liberated She Feels

While Michelle Obama’s entire Becoming book tour has been a delightful spectacle of fashion-forward outfits (Cushnie! Pyer Moss! Givenchy!), the former first lady’s wardrobe made quite a statement Wednesday on the final stop in Brooklyn. It was the thigh-high Balenciaga boots that signaled post-White House Michelle Obama, The Civilian, was finally relaxed after meticulously calculating her appearance for the last eight years. Eight years of scrutiny and policing that women who look like her are...

Trust Your Intuition in Your Career and Life

When I was around 11 years old, a couple of friends of mine, Charlie and Dave, had found a use for an amazing garden of sculptured bushes that was behind Charlie’s house. I had never understood or appreciated how exciting a garden could really be. Charlie’s dad was a very successful salesman of something or other, and he and his family lived in a giant corner house on a street called Sunningdale, in Grosse Pointe Woods, a nice suburb of Detroit. Charlie was about the richest kid in our elementar...

The Greatest Secret of Billionaires, 95-Year-Old Attorneys and the Retirement Myth

I have been in Las Vegas this week, and a good five or six times, I have heard various people talk about how Steve Wynn does this, or Steve Wynn does that. There is absolutely no question that Wynn is a successful guy, and I would love to go over and see his new casino to see what it is all about. From what I understand, it is incredible. Everywhere I go, I am hearing stories about different people who have reached the pinnacle of success. Because a really good biography just came out about Warr...

Nike's New Campaign Showcases Some Pretty Inspiring People (& No, They're Not Celebs)

The word "hero" gets thrown around a lot. This week alone, we've seen it used to describe the ass-kicking protagonist in a new action flick, a courier that delivered a colleague's quinoa bowl in 10 minutes flat, and an Instagram influencer's super-hydrating face serum. Don't get us wrong — all of the above definitely deserve major praise. But hero status? Let's reserve that title for real-life role models. As in, people using their strengths to inspire others and ignite change in the world. Tak...

Musulmamis: Parenting while Latina and Muslim

For new Muslims nothing can be more daunting than dealing with family members’ reactions to the decision of converting to Islam. Parents, siblings, and other relatives can either shun their newly-Muslim family member, ask very tough questions, make hurtful comments regarding their faith, or even give them ultimatums in order to pressure them to abandon their choice to embrace Islam. While some of these initial reactions and resistance may be well-intentioned, they are no less hurtful. The first ...

How To Dress For Every Sort Of Winter Forecast

As we all know, winters are not made equal. The Midwest is regularly blanketed in feet of snow, the Pacific Northwest is generally wet and wild, lucky Southern California is chilly at best, and the Mid-Atlantic is always in for a surprise with its grab bag of a forecast. But, at some point, everyone (with maybe the exception of those living in the dry, desert areas) is bound to experience some degree of each winter version.To help deal, we’ve outlined four different outfit ideas for each of the...

How Music Can Awaken Patients with Alzheimer’s and Dementia

In the late 1950’s, pioneering free jazz bandleader Sun Ra played a gig at a Chicago mental hospital, booked there by his manager Alton Abraham, who had an interest in alternative medicine. The experiment in musical therapy worked wonders. One patient who had not moved or spoken in years reportedly got up, walked over to the piano, and yelled out, “you call that music!” The anecdote illustrates just one experience among untold millions in which a person suffering from a debilitating neur...

The 7 Small Space Mistakes You Don't Realize You're Making — & How To Avoid Them

When it comes to small space living, there's a lot of misinformation out there. To be fair, it mostly comes from a place of good intentions — you can take solace in the fact that nobody's trying to sabotage your pint-sized home makeover. But what works for a cozy dorm room may not shine in 400-square-foot NYC apartment, just like what flatters a refurbished basement unit may not be the thing for a rustic Los Angeles bungalow. Small spaces, while they share in common their diminutive size, are o...

The Best Masks For Your Hair (& Budget)

No matter the length, texture, or style of our hair, we’re always on the hunt for ways to make every last strand as lustrous as possible. But between monthly colorist appointments, an affinity for hot tools, and unpredictable weather conditions, this is no easy task. So to help repair the damage caused by chemicals, heat, Mother Nature, and genetics, there’s nothing better than a hair mask to get yours back into tip-top shape.Not to be confused with your daily conditioner, a hair mask (or masqu...

Eating Only Fruit Might Be Trendy, But It's A Really Bad Idea

From Steve Jobs to vegan vloggers, Instagram wellness gurus to bodybuilders, lots of health-inclined people on the internet have been under the impression that eating only raw fruits will change your life. This diet is called "fruitarianism," and it involves solely eating raw fruits, and sometimes nuts and seeds. Proponents of the diet claim that it'll help with digestion, keep you hydrated, improve cognition, simplify meal-prepping, give you more energy, and of course, "detoxify " you body.Fru...

The Power of Perceptions

In 1991 I purchased a four-year old Audi 5000 automobile for $2,500. When the car was new, it had been listed at $40,000. It was really beautiful inside. It had all sorts of electronic controls, powered everything, and it drove incredibly well. In fact, I can honestly say that the Audi 5000 was one of the nicest cars I have ever owned. In the entire time I owned the car, I had very few problems with it. The car was very comfortable in all respects and it cost me less than a much older, cheap com...

For F***'s Sake: Why Is Modern Flying Such A Soul-Crushing Time Suck?

“It was an unforgettable nightmare,” says Donna Beegle. In 2015, she and her family were attempting to travel in coach class from Houston to Portland on a United flight. Midway through, they were removed from the aircraft by police. The reason? The pilot “didn’t feel safe” flying with Beegle’s then-15-year-old daughter, Juliette, who has autism.Juliette was experiencing low blood sugar that day. Like many people with autism, she has some specific sensory issues, one of which being that she only...

Heavy denim "Starfleet" jackets

I love the clothes from Volante Design ("Superhuman Streetwear"); their latest is the "Starfleet 2364" line of men's and women's jackets inspired by Star Trek: The Next Generation uniforms. The jackets are made of heavy denim and are basically extremely well-styled/tailored biker jackets (like Volante's excellent Hacker jackets), partially or fully unzipping them and folding down their lapels takes them from "cosplay" to "cosplay adjacent" in an instant. They've got loads of interior and ex...

How Much You Should You Spend On An Engagement Ring, According To Millennial Women

Winter is coming, which means it's time to dust off your parka, pull out your coziest socks, and prepare for cuffing season. Or for those already in committed 'ships, proposal season.

Concentrate on Your Product

When I was growing up, I used to spend most weekends with my father. Like most fathers I knew, my dad loved to watch sports. Football was always on during the season, and he always seemed most interested in college sports. I have always been amazed by college football because of the high level of enthusiasm that students, alumni, and others have for it. My mother went to the University of Michigan, my father attended law school there for some time, my grandfather went there, and my grandmother g...

It's Time To Say Goodbye To Dad Style And Embrace Grandpa Style

One my latest Instagram obsessions is @chinatownpretty, a street style account that celebrates seniors living in San Francisco's Chinatown (although they'll occasionally feature the Chinatown of New York City, Vancouver, and Chicago). The feed is a visual representation of Chinese seniors touting their personal style that often results in colorful, layered, and smart ensembles. It reminds me of my own grandparents' effortless style, a style so difficult to replicate that's transcended the trend...

Chicago West Just Landed Her First Beauty Campaign and Totally Stole the Show From Kim's Bright Pink Shadow

Chicago West may only be 9 months old, but she's already a natural when it comes to this whole modeling thing. We're used to seeing the youngest of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's three children looking as angelic as can be in the sweet photos her makeup mogul mom shares, but her latest appearance in a KKW Beauty post takes the cake. Kardashian took to Instagram on Friday to promote her new Flashing Lights collection with a photo of Chicago nestled against her chest. Both of their eyes are close...
