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...

Can Rice Water Actually Make Your Hair Grow Faster? Experts Weigh In

We have a bad habit of seeking instant gratification when it comes to a lot of things. We expect to feel healthier after eating one kale salad for lunch. We check the mirror every 10 minutes to make sure that new face mask is actually working. And if a round of squats doesn't display instant booty-lifting benefits, well, we're likely to fall right off the fitness bandwagon. The point is: When we test a new product, service, or treatment, we often anticipate immediate, life-altering results that...

29 Netflix Movies To Get Excited For In 2019

2018 was the year we finally grasped the purpose of a Netflix movie. They're there to create unforgettable internet moments, experienced together. To All the Boys I Loved Before and Set It Up reminded us, after a long drought, that we do indeed love the romantic comedy. Bandersnatch had us waking up at seven in the morning to try out all the different possible endings before work. After a flurry of memes, Bird Box eventually inspired an ill-advised real world challenge. And that's not even touc...

I Got My New Favorite Skincare Item in Japan, but It's Available on Amazon For $6

One of the many reasons I had always wanted to go to Japan was the plethora of unique products sold there that were unlike anything found in the United States. While I had heavily researched prior to shopping in Tokyo, there were more than a handful of beauty items (and foods, for that matter) I had no idea existed. Among the suitcase full of souvenirs I brought home was a fairly cheap product that I've been using each and every time I sheet mask: the Daiso Reusable Silicone Moisturizing Mask (...

Fantastic oral hygiene

2 days back I went to the dentist for the first time in maybe 4 years, since leaving Tokyo, and she was very pleased with my excellent level of oral hygiene. How nice. She was also rather taken with my gold fillings – we don’t do gold here in the UK anymore, but it’s the main filling material in Japan. In other news I’ve finally ordered our new shed, I damaged my shoulder yesterday doing bench-presses, Facebook Ad efficacy is down (zero sales yesterday), and I’m enjoying The ABC Murders on the B...

A Pro's Guide To Finding Your Signature Nail Shape

Forcing Winter Vegetables

Forced winter vegetables like this Belgian Endive in my garden may be the next hot food trend home gardeners and chefs haven't  rediscovered yet. Think about it - there was a time, and really not that very long ago  - like a hundred and fifty years or so ago, when there weren't any supermarkets. There was no refrigeration aside from ice and no air travel so summer vegetables were just that - summer vegetables. Everything else was preserved, pickled, fermented or was considered storage veg...

Podcast #464: What’s Causing the Sex Recession?

Studies show that people, especially young people, are having less sex than past generations did. While many may celebrate this decline as a good thing, the reasons behind the drop in sex may not all be so positive. A decline in physical intimacy may potentially speak to a decline in emotional intimacy, and a struggle modern folks are having with connecting with each other. My guest explores the decline in sexual frequency as a way into these larger cultural and relational questions in her lo...

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...
