A bill that would put Washington state on year-round daylight time passed the state Senate by an overwhelming 46-2 vote. It now heads back to the House for a final vote before going to the governor's desk. If passed, it would still require federal approval, but sponsors are optimistic.

The Best YA Books Written By Black Women That You Haven't Read Yet

Angie Thomas. Nicola Yoon. Tomi Adeyemi. Even if you’re not that into young adult literature (YA), you probably already know those three names. Their respective young-adult debuts either became blockbuster movies (Thomas’s The Hate U Give), book-club juggernauts (Adeyemi’s Children of Blood and Bone), instantly beloved teen classics (Yoon’s Everything, Everything) or all of the above. These authors — all Black women — have dominated YA bestseller lists and changed the face of a genre that seeme...

"I'm a hugger, I'm a kisser, and a little bit of a sniffer," Sudeikis' Biden said. "But the last thing I want to do is offend anyone."Two women are brought in to interact with Biden, both of whom, he ...

Joe Biden Just Made Things Worse By Joking About His Inappropriate Behavior

In his first public appearance since seven women complained about his past behavior, former Vice President Joe Biden could have issued an apology during his remarks. He could have even given a speech without mentioning the issue. Instead, he chose to make not one, but two jokes about the lines women said he crossed and the topic of consent.As he took the stage to deliver his remarks at an International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers conference in Washington, D.C., Biden hugged Lonnie Stephen...

Inside The Trader Joe's Black Market — Where Everything Bagel Seasoning Costs $22

You may associate Trader Joe’s with Hawaiian shirts but, paradoxically, the beloved grocery chain doesn’t have any locations in Hawaii. The closest store is a few thousand miles away in California. Thus, Marli Arneson, a 25-year-old from Oahu craving Trader Joe’s ginger turmeric tea, did what many of us might: She went on Amazon and bought a box for $9.74, assuming the two retailers had a partnership. But no. It was only later that Arneson learned her sought-after tea hadn’t come directly from ...

Inside The World Of Gillistans, Kirsten Gillibrand’s Biggest Fans

Brooklyn attorneys Ella Frederick, 43, and Jolevette Mitchell, 31, were among the earliest to arrive at Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s strategically positioned rally in front of Trump International Hotel in New York City last week. Because of that, they got to stand right in front of the stage as Gillibrand formally announced her candidacy for president, decrying the glassy “shrine to greed, division, and vanity” behind her and calling President Donald Trump a coward. After the rally, they took self...

Clean Cleaning: How Eco-Friendly Companies Are Rebranding Your Least Favorite Chore

It’s become apparent that sooner or later, every market will be made over in the millennial image. What started with brands like Glossier and Warby Parker has now grown to include direct-to-consumer toilet paper and consciously-crafted olive oil with packaging so hip it could have been designed by Rachel Comey. Now, the cleaning supply industry is being similarly disrupted, with so many new brands touting alternatives to traditional cleaners that aren’t just eco-friendly, but are also elevated,...

Trying To Find Affordable Child Care Is Not The Job I Wanted

In the past month, I’ve spent close to 60 hours trying to secure child care for my two-year-old son. This is not the kind of job I ever wanted. It’s a high-stakes, unpaid position that often leaves me quite literally with a bellyache. But as the keeper of the family calendar and bank account and the mother who works from home, this task inevitably falls on me.I would generally describe my partner as supportive, but he has done very little to help with this process, balking the one time I asked ...

Joe Biden’s presumptive presidential campaign is already facing its first crisis.

Review: Vintage vibrators

Masturbating like it’s 1925 with the Polar Cub Electric Vibrator, Oster Massagett, and Vanguard Vibro-Massager The inventor of the first electrical vibrator, doctor Joseph Mortimer Granville, called his device “Granville’s Hammer” — and if that’s not obviously named by a man I don’t know what is. It was for male pain relief; he expressly didn’t want women to use it. “I have avoided, and shall continue to avoid the treatment of women by percussion,” he wrote in 1883, “simply because I ...

New name beat: Fifth City

Maybe it’s because I was reading The Fifth Risk, Michael Lewis’s 2018 book about how the current administration in Washington is “government led by the uninterested,” as NPR put it, but my first response to the announcement last week of the Fifth City makeup brand was: What are the first, second, third, and fourth cities? It could have been worse: They could have called it Fifth Place.   Fifth City is a private-label brand sold through SaksOffFifth—the discount division, launched in 1990,...

The Freshman Congresswomen Want You To Have The Confidence Of A Man & Run For Office

Photo: Tom Williams/Getty Images. Freshman Congresswoman Katie Hill tends to get "big-idea moments" when she's shuttling back and forth from California to D.C., and at one point during one of these long flights, the 31-year-old found herself writing out a 30-year plan for her future. Her conclusion after several hours of thinking and writing? "Once we get to the point where Gen Z, you guys, make up the biggest voting bloc, then that's when we know our world is heading in the right place,"...

You Need to Sell, Sell, Sell
