Sommerurlaub in Coronazeiten: Das sind die Richtlinien im Vereinigten Königreich

Nachdem wir wegen Corona lange Zeit aufs Reisen verzichten mussten, gibt es mittlerweile glücklicherweise in vielen Ländern schon Lockerungen für Tourist*innen. Doch da die Pandemie auch im Sommerurlaub nicht Geschichte ist, müssen wir uns natürlich mit den Infektionsschutzmaßnahmen unserer Zielorte beschäftigen. Wann darf ich einreisen? Wie viele Personen dürfen insgesamt gemeinsam Urlaub machen? Gelten Mindestabstandsregelungen? Kein Wunder also, dass die Suchanfragen über Coronaregelungen für...

How To Choose The Best Home Renovation Company

Choosing the best home renovation company to renovate your home can be a stressful experience. Home renovation is a fresh start, a chance to show off your creative side, and an all-encompassing project. Whether it’s a whole home do-over, just one room, or something in between, renovation requires careful consideration. In the wrong hands, a home renovation can quickly turn into a nightmare.  Perhaps during the COVID-19 pandemic, like many people, you have decided to make a change. Reduc...

Cambridge University Professor Cooks 4000-Year-Old Recipes from Ancient Mesopotamia, and Lets You See How They Turned Out

Those of us who’ve dedicated a portion of our isolation to the art of sourdough have not suffered for a lack of information on how that particular sausage should get made. The Internet harbors hundreds, nay, thousands of complicated, contrary, often contradictory, extremely firm opinions on the subject. You can lose hours…days…weeks, agonizing over which method to use. The course for Bill Sutherland's recent culinary experiment was much more clearly charted. As documented in a series of now...

 3 Ways Tech Can Help You Achieve Work-Life Balance

In this day and age, it can be argued that a healthy work-life balance is more important than ever. We live in a hectic world that is changing daily. The demands we face in our jobs can be, and often are, overwhelming. Leaving all that behind is a task not all of us can handle successfully. As an employer, you can also benefit greatly from having workers with life outside works. Creating conditions for a healthy work-life balance is a great way of helping your employees improve their efficienc...

Bisa Butler’s Beautiful Quilted Portraits of Frederick Douglass, Nina Simone, Jean-Michel Basquiat & More

Fiber artist Bisa Butler’s quilted portraits of Black Americans gain extra power from their medium. Each work is comprised of many scraps, carefully cut and positioned after hours of research and preliminary sketches. Velvet and silk nestle against bits of vintage flour sacks, West African wax print fabric, denim and, occasionally, hand-me-downs from the sitter’s own collection. In The Warmth of Other Sons, a 12-foot, life-sized portrait of an African American family who migrated nor...

The College Board is a case study in corporate racism

Every day, one million families watch every move on the College Board website because it controls so much of the college application process. Today it looked like the site was hacked. There is bold, white copy centered on a black background that is unreadable in a way I haven’t seen since the early Internet. Looking more closely I saw it’s a letter “from the Black employees at College Board.” The College Board has 353 employees. Seven employees signed the letter. What?? This is an organizati...

Milton Glaser (RIP) Explains Why We Must Overcome the Fear of Failure, Take Risks & Discover Our True Potential

Milton Glaser died last week at the age of 91, a long life that included decade upon decade as the best-known name in graphic design. Within the profession he became as well-known as several of his designs did in the wider world: the Bob Dylan poster, logos for companies like DC Comics, the Glaser Stencil font, and above all  I ? NY. Glaser may have become an icon, but he didn't become a brand — "one of my most despised words," he says in the interview clip above. He also acknowledges tha...

Milton Glaser (RIP) Presents 10 Rules for Life & Work: Wisdom from the Celebrated Designer

“None of us has really the ability to understand our path until it’s over,” the celebrated graphic designer Milton Glaser (RIP) muses less than a minute into the above video. Glaser’s many contributions to pop culture---the  I ? NY logo, the psychedelic portrait of a rainbow-haired Bob Dylan, DC Comics’ classic bullet logo---confer undeniable authority. To the outside eye, he seems to have had a pretty firm handle on the path he traveled for lo these many decades. Aspirant designers would d...

Food Logging

If you’d like to raise your awareness about what you’re actually eating and how it affects you, food logging is a simple and effective way to do this. Six weeks ago I decided to start keeping a log of everything I ate in a small notebook. I also keep track of calories. I wanted to raise my awareness of what I was eating and how calorically dense each meal was. Computing the calories is easy. I use a small kitchen scale to weigh quantities of foods, and then I just ask a nearby smart device...

The Millennial Workplace Is Coming – Will Managers Be Ready?

The workplace is changing, will you know how to handle it? Image Credit: Photo by Helena Lopes on Unsplash As all managers have probably realized by now, the millennials have arrived. That younger generation of workers are moving into the office at the same time that the baby boomers are starting to move out. The arrival in force of this new type of worker is going to cause some fundamental changes to occur in the workplace. As a manager, you need to have the manager skills to be r...

Exquisite 2300-Year-Old Scythian Woman’s Boot Preserved in the Frozen Ground of the Altai Mountains

Shoes and boots, show where your feet have gone. —Guy Sebeus, 10 New Scythian Tales  In the age of fast fashion, when planned obsolescence, cheap materials, and shoddy construction have become the norm, how startling to encounter a stylish women’s boot that’s truly built to last… …like, for 2300 years.

Think Like An Entrepreneur, Not An Employee #CareerChange

I recently did a 6-week series for Pluralsight on jobs and careers. It was a lot of fun (and a bit of work :p). In some of the emails I’m getting from people I can sense a great deal of frustration. This frustration is coming from being in the hamster wheel we call the job search. Again and again, doing the same things, not getting anywhere. I remember waking up during my Big Job Search and thinking “why get out of bed? Why do the same stuff I’ve been doing? I’m not getting any reactions.” I mad...

Watch a Mesmerizing Stream of Unwatched YouTube Videos: Astronaut.io Lets You Discover the Hidden Dimensions of the World’s Largest Video Platform

When times are hard, it often helps to zoom out for a moment—in search of a wider perspective, historical context, the forest full of trees… Astronaut.io, an algorithmic YouTube-based project by Andrew Wong and James Thompson, offers a big picture that’s as restorative as it is odd: Today, you are an Astronaut. You are floating in inner space 100 miles above the surface of Earth. You peer through your window and this is what you see. If the stars look very different today, it’s because they’re ...

Cardio for the Man Who Hates Cardio: The Benefits of Rucking

With our archives now 3,500+ articles deep, we’ve decided to republish a classic piece each Friday to help our newer readers discover some of the best, evergreen gems from the past. This article was originally published in October 2017. I hate cardio.

Go run a lap. No, make that three. Didn’t go har...

FH77 Courrèges: Artillery or perfume?

I decided to find and try FH 77 Courrèges masculine fragrance, because of the cult status of another brand's fragrance, Empreinte Courreges, as well as its extreme rarity and urban legend associated with FH 77. They said, the fragrance was named after the cannon. That's quite a rare thing. Yes, it's true, Google search of FH 77 will give you photos of Swedish field howitzer (Sweden - falthaubitz)...

DEVO Is Now Selling COVID-19 Personal Protective Equipment: Energy Dome Face Shields

According to DEVO's co-principle songwriter and bassist Gerald Casale, the experimental art band turned early MTV pop-punk darlings were “pro-information, anti stupid conformity and knew that the struggle for freedom against tyranny is never-ending.” Their singular performance garb also set them apart, and none more so than the bright red plastic Energy Dome helmets they donned 40 years ago this month, upon the release of their third album, Freedom of Choice.

Lockdown Life Straining Attorney Mental Health

Lockdown life is straining global sanity, so it is no surprise that it is having a negative impact on attorney mental health. Unfortunately, lawyers already struggle with mental health and substance abuse issues at a higher rate than other professions, so we must all take care to watch over our friends, family and colleagues in these unprecedented times.

Best Collaborative Tools For HR in the times of Coronavirus

The world is closed today, and nobody on this planet knows when the situation will get to normal. The companies are closed, schools and colleges are shut, students have no idea about their future endeavors, and every person is bound to stay at home. It seems like this is the only way to prevent the pandemic from doing further damages. Ever since the government has announced the lockdown, the employees have been asked to work from home to avoid any mass interaction. However, living in the tec...

Emails my mom sent from her NYC co-op

I stopped talking with my mom a few years ago. She might not have noticed at first. My brothers have all cut her off at times as well. But my mom is pragmatic. She knows she and my dad were terrible parents. She apologizes and by all accounts, she is a much more enjoyable person to be around when she is not raising kids. In January I decided I’m too old to not talk to my mom. I am 52. She had me when she was 21. I decided to trust that she always means well when she talks to me. I know she tr...

20 Not (That) Lame Knock-Knock Jokes

Knock, knock. Who’s there? Dwayne. Dwayne, who? Dwayne the bathtub! I’m dwowning! Knock jokes as we know them today emerged around 1936, and soon became a veritable craze: they were shared on the radio, printed in newspapers, used by businesses in ads, and incorporated into songs. Knock-knock joke contests were staged, and a few knock-knock joke clubs were even formed. But as quickly as this genre of humor rose to prominence, it was just as quickly, well, knocked by critics who found the setup ...

Sausage surprise! 10 unexpected ways to cook with bangers and frankfurters

But there’s much more you can do with them than fry-ups, sandwiches and casserolesWhen you Google famous quotes about sausages (say you need an opener for an article), one of the first comes from Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who apparently once said: “Sausages are just funny. I don’t know why. I can’t explain it.”Waller-Bridge is not wrong. Sausages are inherently funny. But their comedic value is also what holds them back. In the kitchen, n...

6 Tipps, damit euer erstes Date trotz Selbst-Isolation perfekt wird

Letzte Woche habe ich eine Stunde damit verbracht, mich für ein Date fertig zu machen. Ich habe die verlotterte Jogginghose ausgezogen, die ich seit Beginn der Selbst-Isolation so gut wie jeden Tag trage, und bin unter die Dusche gehüpft. Dann habe ich mich mit Contouring von meinem Gefühlschaos (Aufregung, Nervosität, Vorfreude) abgelenkt und meine Haare gekämmt. Ich habe mir sogar einen BH angezogen! Und dann habe ich mich auf den Weg gemacht. In mein Wohnzimmer. Statt in einem Café o...

30 Million Unemployment Claims in U.S. And We’re Headed For the Greater Depression

We did it. We hit 30 million unemployment claims, the last 12%+ coming in just the last week. According to articles all over the internet this morning (it’s only 7:11 am where I am, and this is all over) we could see a 20% unemployment rate. Here’s the scary quote: “That would be the highest rate since it reached 25% during the Great Depression.” NO ONE is protected.

Watch Free Plays from Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre: Romeo & Juliet, Macbeth & More

As depressing articles about the upcoming Summer of COVID-19 begin to proliferate, our hopes for beach days, concert series, and summer camp begin to dim.

How to Find Emotional Strength & Resilience During COVID-19: Advice from Elizabeth Gilbert, Jack Kornfield, Susan David & Other Experts

There are many roads through the coronavirus crisis. One is denial, which only makes things worse. Another is service and self-sacrifice, a choice we honor in the medical professionals putting their lives at risk every day. For most of us, however, the best course of action is non-action—staying home and isolating ourselves from others. Days bleed into weeks, weeks into months. It can seem like life has come to a complete halt. It hasn’t, of course. All sorts of things are happening insi...
