Boys, Ferocity, Frontiers, and Sports

Editor’s Note: This is a guest article by Karl Zinsmeister. Organized sports, from college athletics to local Little League teams, are slowly coming back to life after being on lockdown. There are those who will say that these activities aren’t “essential.” But they’ve been saying that since before the pandemic. And they couldn’t be more wrong. There are folks who have long argued that sports are just escapism. Plenty of teachers and professors think athletic teams are nothing but a distraction...

I was calm until I read about colleges staying closed until September 2022

Each night before I go to sleep, I lay in bed torturing myself with the day’s news. I know we are not supposed to do that, but there are very few vices I can fully engage in when we have five people living in a 1000-square-foot apartment. Screen-time news right before bed is one of few vices that takes very little space and does not involve the bathroom. Wait. You’re wondering about the five people, right? I didn’t know our apartment is actually approved for only two people. I found it out wh...

Be Vulnerable and Authentic

At about the age of nine or so, I met someone at school who was very popular and we became friends. At some point early in our relationship he said this about another kid we knew: “My parents said I am not allowed to be friends with kids of divorced parents like him. Kids of divorced parents are all screwed up, they said.” As our friendship developed, I said nothing about my own parents being divorced or that I lived with my mother and my stepfather. This popular boy quickly ingratiated me into ...

It’s time to ditch the American obsession with meritocracy

Americans have an unwavering belief in economic mobility. Most people in the U.S. think they can work hard to get ahead, even though economic mobility is . Americans underestimate the importance of luck and believe that people who are ahead got there from hard work and intelligence. Even something like a good photo is statistically just luck based on how many photos we take. But when we get a good photo we feel skilled. Economists have found that the bigger a gap there is between rich and po...

Your Strength Is Your Ability to Control Your Internal World

Recently, I heard Tony Robbins state in a lecture that his mother had divorced four different men during the course of his childhood. After some time, his mother would divorce each man, claiming he wasn’t successful enough. Imagine what sort of message this must have sent to Mr. Robbins as a young child. Much of our response to life is shaped by what we see happening around us, especially in those formative years. Based on what happens around us, we learn to interpret what’s required of us in or...

The Importance of Environment

I have decided that I do not like exercising in the gym in our building in Las Vegas anymore. The facility itself is very nice and new, and it has excellent equipment. It is also very clean and well maintained; in fact, it is one of the nicest gyms I have ever seen. The window views of the stratosphere outside are also pretty cool. However, it is what is going on inside the gym that bothers me. Almost every time I have been to the gym I have seen men running with their shirts off on the treadmil...

Tracee Ellis Ross Turned Up The Volume On The Emmys Red Carpet

Tracee Ellis Ross is truly a delight. Not only is she funny and down-to-earth, but she often casually serves up looks both on and off the 'gram. We've come to expect Ross to bring it when she walks the red carpet, as the daughter of Diana Ross should, but Tracee is something special. She's an Ivy League graduate, a theater kid, a model, and a fashion editor. The latter is part of what makes her style so good. You just know that, deep in her heart, she's a Fashion Person™.Earlier this summer, Ro...

The Real Cost Of Rushing A Sorority

Usually, Spruce Street in Philadelphia smells like street food and manhole fumes; during sorority rush it reeks of Chanel No. 5.Back in January, I joined hundreds of other freshmen girls who had adorned themselves with Burberry scarves tied in neat knots, Stuart Weitzman boots that dug into the dirty slush, and Chanel clutches draped over their shoulders like Christmas ornaments. Together, we waited in sub-freezing temperatures to enter the University of Pennsylvania’s Irvine Auditorium for sor...

In the heart of one of the world’s leading economies, a major transformation is underway. A recent redrawing of state boundaries has named Amaravati the new capital city of the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. A wide-ranging master plan calls for the city to be completely redesigned into one of the world’s most sustainable and smart cities, blazing a path for the entire country.

The Richest Man in Bay City

When I graduated from law school, I worked in Bay City, Michigan, for a federal judge for a year. Bay City is a former lumber town whose fortunes had long gone down the tubes when the lumber industry went away some 100 years ago. After lumber went away, some prosperity came to the town for 30 years or so with auto manufacturers—but they closed down as well and left in their wake a city that was completely devastated. By the time I got there, the city had the distinction of having the most bars p...

Michelle Obama Talks To R29 About The Power of Girls' Education

You don’t need us here at Refinery29 to remind you that this past year has been simultaneously challenging and revolutionary for women. Between the steady stream of messages we’ve received from our public officials and the even harsher realities (finally) exposed by the #MeToo movement, we’ve spent much of the past year fixing problems of prejudice and inequity.But as we’re looking inward, International Women’s Day is also an opportunity for us all to look outward. And while we still often trea...

Misogynist conversations women have all the time

Maybe you have not said all of these phrases, but you have said one of these, and you need to own up to it. Because all the #metoos of the world are not going to change things without you taking personal responsibility for the ways you put down other women. “I could never stay at home with kids. It’s too boring.” The implication here is that people who stay home with kids require less stimulation than you do. Maybe they are dumber than you are, or more simple than you are. Maybe they don’t hav...

Parking Benefits and Falling in Love with Your Job

As unfortunate as it is, most working people seem to fall in love with themselves instead of falling in love with their job, clients, customers, and bosses. In this one fact these people have severely crippled themselves. Your entire career will change when you conceive of your career not as benefiting you alone, but as enhancing the lives of your clients, customers, and bosses. No one hires you because they want you to make a lot of money. No one hires you because they want you to feel importa...

The Best Netflix Original Series For You, Based On Your Sign

House of Cards, Netflix's first original scripted series, came out in 2013. In the four years that have followed, Netflix has become a powerhouse in developing intelligent, experimental, and above all, quality TV. There are the shows we know we already love, like Orange is the New Black and Stranger Things. Netflix also keeps rolling out astonishingly good content, like last year's American Vandal, a parody on the true crime genre set in a high school.Amid all this, how can you choose which Net...

The Greater Your Purpose, the Greater the Obstacles You Will Face

Several years ago, I had a girlfriend who had an older sister who was nothing short of incredible. She was a world-class swimmer and had set countless records in the state. She had times in swimming that would easily have qualified her for the Olympics, and she was planning on going to the Olympic trials in one year. In addition to this, she had been taking college-level course in high school since she was a freshman, and she had gotten the best score possible on all the exams. To top all of t...

This Novel Promises There's No Wrong Way To Mother

Celeste Ng 's latest novel, Little Fires Everywhere, is a meditation on the unspoken pains and contradictions of motherhood. Its story unspools all the raw, knotted tensions that go into making a family, bursting many a parenting fantasy along the way.The narrative focuses on the Richardsons — an upper-middle class family of six — and creates a portrait of idyllic 1990s suburbia with a rebellious twist. In the sleepy planned community of Shaker Heights, Ohio, people live an ordered life amid ma...

Black & Latinx Ivy League Students Are Underrepresented — & They Feel It

As college students across the country gear up for another school year, a pervasive problem persists: Students of color are still largely underrepresented at top universities. A New York Times analysis published Thursday shows that even with affirmative action efforts, Black and Latinx students' overall representation at 100 of the nation's most prestigious schools hasn't improved in the past 35 years. In fact, students of color are even less represented today than they were in 1980.Students of...

Fun Fact: John Legend Was A Spelling Bee Champion

The man, the myth, John Legend, has his fair share of awards. In fact, he has so many awards and nominations that they have their own Wikipedia page. The list includes ten Grammys, one Oscar, and one Tony. Perhaps the most wholesome award he's ever won, however, is his 3rd grade district spelling bee prize.It probably comes as no shocker that Legend was a precocious little kid. That's p-r-e-c-o-c-i-o-u-s. "Precocious." The R&B singer graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a bachelor...
