Director Levan Akin on set with Levan Gelbakhiani “Can we sit outside? I need to smoke.” Levan Akin makes the request when we greet him outside a bookstore in Park City, Utah. The two of us find a cafe table nearby overlooking the street, where we watch a light powdering of snow begin to fall as the mid-week lull of the Sundance Film Festival begins. Normally we might object to Akin smoking, but in his case, it somehow makes sense. His Sundance entry, And Then We Danced, has incited protests ...

6 Ways to Sharpen Your Pencils

Editor’s note: This is a guest article from TJ Cosgrove. You’ve likely never given much thought to pencils (though you really should!). Likewise, you’ve probably never lent much thought to how to sharpen your pencils, defaulting to whatever was on hand. But much like pencils themselves, pencil sharpeners are a rich and detailed rabbit hole into which you can easily fall, should you find yourself drawn to minutia and the perfection of craft. There are many different ways to sharpen a pencil, an...

The mattress landfill crisis: how the race to bring us better beds led to a recycling nightmare

As the sleep economy grows, online companies vie to sell us new mattresses, offering 100-day returns. This has helped create an impossible waste mountain – and a wild west of rogue recyclersMike Scollick and Richard Allsopp are talking about the worst things they ever found in a mattress. “We had one where I think a dog had been lying on it, and the whole thing was just jumping with fleas,” Allsopp says, shuddering. No one would touch it, so they had to use a cherry picker to move it. But that’s...

Jennifer Lopez Just Got a Teeny Chop to Her Blond Lob, but it Changed the Entire Look

In September, Jennifer Lopez debuted a new hairstyle at the premiere of Hustlers.

MAC Female Gaze & Deco-a-Go-Go Lipglasses Reviews & Swatches

Female Gaze MAC Female Gaze Lipglass ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) has a translucent base with flecks of gold, pink, and copper shimmer and flecks of micro-sparkle.

We will end female genital mutilation only by backing frontline activists

From the Gambia to Kenya, FGM has been fought most successfully at grassroots level. The world must pay heed I underwent female genital mutilation at the age of seven, while on holiday in Djibouti.

FGM is now seen as a global issue, which we know has affected more than 200 million wom...
