How To Marie Kondo Your Inbox, According To A Google Productivity Expert

Nothing causes Sunday Scaries like the looming threat of a cluttered inbox on Monday morning. But in addition to causing stress, a disorganized inbox can also negatively impact your productivity at work. When your unread-email count goes up with every minute, it's hard to know what to respond to and when — and getting your day-to-day tasks done on top of email management can seem almost too difficult to juggle. So with the KonMari method on the brain, we wondered: If you can Marie Kondo your cl...

What Can Google Teach Managers About Teams?

What does it take to create a team that will be successful? Image Credit: danny O. The way that most work gets done is when we create a team of professionals, tell them what needs to be done, and then send them off to accomplish it. However, that is not always what happens. We’ve all had experiences with teams that we’ve used our manager skills to build that have struggled to accomplish their goals, have fought with each other, and generally have not gotten along very well. We know what fa...

You Can Redecorate Your Home From The Comfort Of...Your Home

Decorating a home or apartment is a fun project, but it's also daunting. Whether you're starting with a blank canvas or looking for a statement piece to upgrade an area, it can be hard to know where to start. That's where the internet can be your best — and worst — friend. Enter a few words into Google, and you'll open up pages and pages of every kind of bookend, end table, or table runner you can imagine. Now your search has gone from a treasure hunt to a needle-in-a-haystack hunt.To avoid sea...

7 Tips For Finding The Best Daycare

The formative years of our child are one of the most important phases wherein the child gets to develop his or her inclinations, be it in math, science or the arts. However, no matter how much time we would like to spend with our children, this is not at all times possible. When both parents are working, it is really improbable that one parent can dedicate all of his or her time towards such child. But, even though, we, parents might be loaded up with work to be able to also provide for th...

How smart are Gmail’s ‘smart replies’?

When Seamas O’Reilly responded to all his emails for a week using only Smart Reply, our columnist’s messages suddenly became spookily jaunty. Did his friends spot the difference?The philosopher Jeremy Bentham was famed for his panopticon, a hypothetical circular prison that was designed in such a way that its inmates never knew whether or not they were being observed. This would, his theory went, encourage prisoners to presume they were always being watched, and thus act accordingly. No true ver...

When Fred Rogers and Francois Clemmons Broke Down Race Barriers on a Historic Episode of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood (1969)

Last year’s Fred Rogers documentary, Won’t You Be My Neighbor, propelled François Clemmons—better known to generations of Mister Rogers Neighborhood viewers as Officer Clemmons—back into the international spotlight. One of the most striking anecdotes in the doc concerns a 1969 episode in which Mister Rogers, who was white, invited Officer Clemmons, who is black, to join him in soaking his bare feet in a backyard baby pool on a hot summer’s day. It was one of those giant leaps for ma...

How Activism Helped Heal My Grief After My Father Was Shot & Killed

On my first day back to high school after my dad, a beloved history teacher, was shot and killed outside the school where he taught in New Jersey, I wanted to disappear into the walls. At my locker, I used drained reserves of strength to force a fake smile. Friends walked towards me, braced for my inevitable meltdown, but I said hello as if nothing had happened. They appeared appropriately baffled. Ignoring their confusion, I asked about their weekends, determined to act like it was any other M...

Why are people sexually attracted to cartoons? Evolution.

According to Pornhub's annual statistics, "hentai" and "cartoons" were among the most popular categories in 2018.Such pornography is a supernormal stimulus, an artificial object that triggers an animal's instinctual response more intensely than natural analogs.Supernormal stimuli not only explain our heightened response to pornography, but also art, junk food, and social media.Every year Pornhub, the world's largest pornography website, releases annual statistics detailing the trends in online p...

Neil Gaiman Reads His Manifesto on Making Art: Features the 10 Things He Wish He Knew As a Young Artist

I think you're absolutely allowed several minutes, possibly even half a day to feel very, very sorry for yourself indeed. And then just start making art. - Neil Gaiman It’s a bit early in the year for commencement speeches, but fortunately for lifelong learners who rely on a steady drip of inspiration and encouragement, author Neil Gaiman excels at putting old wine in new bottles. He repurposed his keynote address to Philadelphia's University of the Arts’ Class of 2012 for Art Matter...

The East German Secret Police’s Illustrated Guide for Identifying Youth Subcultures: Punks, Goths, Teds & More (1985)

Ask Germans who lived under the German Democratic Republic what they feared most in those days, and they'll likely say the agents of the Ministry for State Security, best known as the Stasi. Ask those same Germans what they laughed at most in those days, and they may well give the same answer. As one of the most thoroughly repressive secret police forces in human history, the Stasi kept a close eye and a tight grip on East German society: as one oft-told joke goes, "Why do Stasi officers make s...

This Concealer Makes It Look Like I Never Had Dark Spots, and It's Only $5

E.l.f. Cosmetics 16 Hour Camo Concealer ($5) is at the center of a lot of hype. A quick Google search of the concealer will yield reviews that say the 18-shade concealer range, which goes for $5 per tube, has comparable results to its more expensive competitors. This is why I chose to put it up against my dark spots, splotchy red areas, and difficult-to-shade-match complexion. A crisp Lincoln can't be the answer to all of those challenges, right? I pulled the jumbo wand from its tube and tapped ...

How to Get Hired Where There Is Not Even an Opening

For some reason, almost every week (sometimes more than once a week) venture capitalists and private equity companies call me to talk about the various businesses I am involved in. I used to talk to them quite formally, the way average people like me talk to doctors, lawyers and bankers. I assumed (wrongly so), that I needed to be a little bit guarded, not share too much information and such. Do not ask me why I thought this way. I think it probably has something to do with the fact that when th...

Is Apple Cider Vinegar The Magic Ingredient Your Scalp Is Missing?

Few things have managed to steal — and stay — in the DIY spotlight the way apple cider vinegar has. Aside from its ability to make any sad salad a little more exciting, the fermented juice has taken on a life of its own in the wellness and beauty spaces, with "fitfluencers" touting the benefits of taking ACV shots to aid digestion and resourceful skin-care enthusiasts watering it down for use as a toner.Start looking into the benefits by typing those three words into Google, however, and it's n...

Glitter, Armpit Hair, & Tattoos — How Maggie Rogers Defies Pop Beauty

Did you know that there are nearly 14 million Google search results for Maggie Rogers ' hair? Even if you did know — and count yourself as one of the millions of inquiries — Rogers certainly did not.

That's crazy!"It suddenly became clear that Rogers is not the kind of famous person who secretly Googles herself in...

Functional Vs. Dysfunctional Anger

Over the years I’ve met with clients and business people who were resistant to working with a colleague because he or she was an “angry asshole.” But when I analyzed their statement by talking to other colleagues, I found that so-called “angry” people were a very mixed bag. Their anger differed significantly. It took me awhile to figure out that some anger served a useful purpose and some did not. But that the differences are rarely clear to most people. What I learned was that it was often help...

Hear Neil Gaiman Read a Beautiful, Profound Poem by Ursula K. Le Guin to His Cousin on Her 100th Birthday

It’s quite profound, isn’t it? - Helen Fagin, aged 100 Every time I open my laptop to discover a friend posting a vintage photo of their parent as a beaming bride or saucy sailor boy in lush black and white or gold-tinged Kodachrome, I know the deal. Another elder has left the building. With luck, I’ll have at least two or three decades before my kids start sniffing around in my shoe boxes of old snapshots. In the meantime, I’ll wonder how much of the emotion that’s packed into those memoria...

The Godfather, a First Google Employee, Steve Ballmer and Microsoft

--> A few years ago, I had dinner with one of Google’s first employees. How he joined Google was a long and convoluted story that had more elements of luck than I can ever recount. He’d been working in a midsized town in relative obscurity and at a fairly low level when, through a series of making the right choices and one random string of events after another, he was hired at Google. Early, early Google. He found himself sitting in a room with less than 15 people who were Google’s first employe...

You Should Not Dabble: To Succeed It’s All or Nothing

--> My last helicopter lesson was on a Christmas morning several years ago. I’m very glad that I made that my last helicopter lesson. I’d shown up at the flight school around 6:00 am. The previous evening, I’d been out pretty late and was not in a mood to fly a helicopter that morning. I had to go to school at that hour, however, because it was the only time slot I was willing to pay for (it’s cheaper to rent a helicopter early in the morning), and I also had a full-time job to be at during the ...
