Millennials Killed Napkins, But They're Resuscitating Prenups

Millennials have killed a lot of things. (What can a napkin do that a paper towel can't? And canned tuna? Please. What's the point?) And yet, from these ashes a rebirth has sprung. Millennials — those of selfie, signature pink, and selling-out fame — are getting prenups.A 2016 study conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers found that 51% of polled attorneys saw an increase in prenuptial agreements among millennial couples in recent years — with contracts most commonly citing “pr...

The Grammys Red Carpet Was Full Of Surprises

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that it's awards season — our mid-winter excuse to lounge around on a Sunday night, order takeout, and, if only for a few hours, live vicariously through the celebrities we stalk on Instagram. Thus far, we've witnessed the raucous glamour of the Golden Globes and the mellow vibes of the SAGs. But those were just the pregame compared to what's next: the Grammys.As the only music-focused trophy-fest of the season (musicians are unpredictable, man!)...

Kavanaugh's Dissent In Louisiana's Abortion Case Means Trouble For Roe v. Wade

In a 5-4 vote, the U.S. Supreme Court blocked a draconian abortion law in Louisiana nearly identical legislation at the heart of Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, a major reproductive rights case decided by the court in 2016.Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the liberal wing of the bench on June Medical Services v. Gee because the 2014 law — which like Texas' HB2 required abortion providers to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals — placed an undue burden on women seeking to term...

Gun Violence Survivors Attend SOTU As Push For Background Checks Intensifies

If President Trump elevated the art of trolling people with his State of the Union guests, Democrats are practicing the art of wielding their guests as a rallying cry for policy reform. In an era when every detail is reported on and scrutinized on social media, it makes sense.Several Democratic lawmakers invited gun violence survivors, gun reform activists, or parents who have lost their children to gunfire as their State of the Union guests on Tuesday.

Top 5 Poker Movies

If you love poker, casinos, or card games, then there’s a good chance that you’ve watched a few poker-related movies. The reason that poker is so compelling to watch is that it’s isn’t merely a game of chance: there’s skill involved. What’s more, the type of skill required is particularly amenable to on-screen representation. There’s nothing quite like watching your favourite actor sweat as he or she gambles with high stakes, hoping to beat adversaries. Many screenwriters and directors use pok...

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...

Freshman Members Of Congress Told Us What They Want To Accomplish

The new Democratic House majority has an ambitious agenda, which started with a sweeping anti-corruption proposal and aims to protect voting rights, fix infrastructure, pass a universal-background checks bill, and take action on climate change.With a Republican-controlled Senate and Trump in the White House, it's realistically unlikely for many of these bills to become law. But this is a chance for Democrats to flex their legislative muscle, make their priorities clear, and show that they're no...

You Need to Be Able to Close

--> The ability to ‘‘close’‘ and get the sale is the most important skill in selling. It’s something that few people know how to do. Many people can get a consumer, an employer, or others to the cusp of making a purchasing or a hiring decision; however, it’s the final ‘‘push’‘ that makes all the difference. It takes a tremendous amount of skill to sell yourself and get a job. It takes a tremendous amount of skill to go from someone who a potential employer will consider for the job to someone wh...

How Beauty Transcends Pore Count

None Let the world howl till it's blue in the face. Stefan Sagmeister and Jessica Walsh have created quite a beaute with Beauty. In an era when humanity's old truths have been challenged by irony and kitsch, when cynicism has nearly rendered beauty obsolete, it's reassuring to find shameless devotees to classic ideals. Sagmeister and Walsh remind us that beauty still can and should please the senses. However, it's equally capable of engaging the intellect. Even more practical, American philoso...

Cillie’s – A sweet token from the Parsis of Karachi

The Parsi community in Karachi has always been a minority, but one that has left an inimitable legacy. Late Jehangir Framroze Punthakey, in his book, The Karachi Zoroastrian Calendar, called the Parsis, “the makers of the Karachi of today.” They belonged to the elite in Karachi, with the city’s first mayor, Jamshed Nusserwanji, also belonging to a Parsi family.

Is The Bachelor Finally Ready To Acknowledge Its Racist Undertones?

Accusations of racism and The Bachelor go together like a confused hunk and a pile of roses in need of distribution. The Bachelor Nation flagship series has never had a lead of color save for the white-passing Juan Pablo Galavis (who ended up being the villain of his own season). Last year’s Arie Luyendyk Jr.-lead outing dipped into the most eye roll worthy of spicy Latina stereotypes with its depiction of fan-favorite Bibiana Julian. Even Bachelorette lead Rachel Lindsay has accused producers ...

Obamacare Was Ruled Unconstitutional By A Federal Court — But You Can Still Get Coverage

Texas-based federal judge Reed O’Connor ruled the Affordable Care Act unconstitutional on Friday, just one day before the ACA enrollment deadline in most states. The ruling would strike down popular ACA reforms such as compulsory coverage for people with pre-existing conditions and the extension of coverage to adults under 26 under their parents’ insurance plans, and potentially mean 17 million Americans could lose their healthcare.The timing has brought the future of the ACA into question, as ...

Could a Tower of Silence For Zoroastrian Funerals Be Built in Texas ?

Khushbu Solanki, a Rutgers Law graduate makes a compelling arguement for a Dokhma in Texas. Khushbu writes… Traditional Zoroastrian funerals require stone structures called Dakhmas — “Towers of Silence” — on which corpses are eaten by buzzards, because the Zoroastrian holy text bans other funeral methods. Excarnatory funeral practices are classified as criminal “Abuse of Corpse” by many state statutes and constitute a misdemeanor to felony offense, thus making traditional Zoroastrian funerals il...
