Trump Pretended To Care About Sexual Assault In His Address — For The First Time Ever

Speaking to the nation from the Oval Office on Tuesday night, President Donald Trump scraped up what little ability he has to appear as a humanitarian, all with the single goal of getting more people on the side of his nonsensical, ineffective border wall.But speaking in a reasonable voice and citing facts didn't make him any less credible in his first televised Oval Office address. The address was a feast for the fact-checkers, and it's become more and more obvious that he's manufacturing a cr...

10 Fun Activities to Get Rid of Your Winter Blues in Berlin

The beloved cozy Christmas atmosphere with all its lights, markets and holiday feels are gone, even the excitement and glitter of New Year’s Eve has faded. The new year leaves us longing for more happy celebrations, but instead, gloomy January has taken their place to spread his dreaded winter blues. I can’t tell you how bad it gets to me, every time.

It's Official: We're Trading In Our Lace-y Thongs For Something A Little More Comfortable

Fact: millennials love to ruin stuff. Or that's what everyone seems to think. Between single-handedly destroying the dairy industry (to make way for the oat milk rebellion, of course) and ruining bar culture forever (wine is so much cheaper at home), it's almost as if there's nothing that those born between 1981 and 1995 haven't killed. But if there's one outdated concept we're most proud of taking down, it has to be "sexy underwear".Where we used to look at Victoria's Secret for tips on how to...

Where to travel by zodiac sign

Maybe you think astrology is stupid. Maybe you think it’s a bunch of hippie-dippy junk science people use to excuse bad behavior. “Well you should have known I was going to was going to cheat on you, Janet. I’m a Scorpio!” Ok, well put that aside for a second. Because if you buy into astrology — if only for the time it takes to read your horoscope — it can be pretty entertaining. And sometimes, surprisingly accurate. Besides, even if you’re not into astrology, there’s a good chance someone yo...

What Eye Doctors Really Think About Eyelash Extensions

Here's a message from your eye doctor: Please, please lay off of the eyelash extensions in 2019 (sorry, don't hate the messenger). Of all the lash enhancement options — glue-on lash strips, magnetic lashes, eyelash extensions, and growth solutions like Latisse — the optometrists we spoke to were adamant about one thing: eyelash extensions should be your last option.Even though those lashes that add length and volume for weeks are super convenient, they could actually be causing more harm than y...

8 Celebrity Hair Transformations That Will Yank You Out Of A Hair Rut

Despite how hopeful you felt at midnight on January 1, no one — not even you — is immune to feeling the unmotivated dread of a rut.

What I Wish I'd Known Before I Went Freelance

Up until last year, I was a full-time freelancer for four years. It was a career path I kind of fell into; I love to travel, value my freedom of movement, and revel in the ability to be creative and explore a spectrum of crafts, tasks, and projects.When I first started working as a freelancer, I was scared. While, on one hand, I saw a limitless path stretching out in front of me, I also had a lot of questions: How does billing work? How do you do your taxes? What makes a good contract? What abo...

6 Under-$25 Ways To Fade Dark Spots — Without A Trip To The Dermatologist

Nobody asks to end up with hyperpigmentation, but plenty of people find themselves dealing with it anyway. The story is always the same: An uninvited pimple, bug bite, or patch of eczema sets up shop on your skin, way overstays its welcome, and leaves behind a mottled mess of post-inflammatory dark spots.You can easily lose hours and rack up debt on chemical peels, trips to the dermatologist, and fancy pigment-fading creams in the name of spot-free skin. But while most of those methods are effe...

Slavery, Piracy, and Shirtless Men in Silent Film, 'Old Ironsides'

None Now on DVD and Blu-ray from Kino Lorber is a classic silent epic that hasn't seen the light of home video since a Paramount VHS back in the '80s. Old Ironsides (1926) provides a colorful, patriotic, sometimes hoked-up and inaccurate account of an important and largely overlooked incident in American naval history, the First Barbary War of 1804-05, also called the Tripolitan War. This event served as America's first "foreign adventure" and the first time an American flag was hoisted in mili...

“Jazz Is Dying” As Metaphor For The Larger Culture

Matthew McKnight examines Jazz At Lincoln Center: “While the obituary writers may have been right—something’s dying—they have been preoccupied with the wrong thing. By looking for signs of vitality in measures of jazz’s popularity, it becomes easier to ignore what the music, according to Marsalis’s definition, is: a refinement of empathic listening, a model for improvisation, and an embodiment of meaningful time perception. If this is right, then the supposition that jazz is dead carries meaning...
