Having A Work Spouse Isn't Just Fun, It's Key To Professional Success

When Miranda Smith*, 30, started her job as a senior advisor in government consulting, she immediately surveyed her new team. More specifically, she started searching for another person who looked like her.“As a Black woman, I always look for another person of color,” Smith explains. “It’s such a relief knowing there’s someone else in the workplace like me. ”For many professionals, entering a new workplace brings with it a desire to connect with colleagues. Sometimes, these connections can unfo...

Amaal: Not What I Thought

Setting a break-up ballad against the bleak, beautiful landscapes of Iceland always seems to yield success. Toronto-based Amaal does so in “Not What I Thought,” to striking result. Director Sean Brown casts intimate close-ups against shots of sheer alienation. A mood is built through the visuals that complements Amaal’s vocal grace. The track is the recording artist’s first from a forthcoming EP.

The antiquated 21-day myth has been busted; recent studies suggest it could be 66, or really just anywhere from 18 to 254, and by the 150th day you might start to wonder, Why even bother trying to change anything at all?Perhaps one day there will be a chip you can implant in your brain that will send an electric shock...

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 I Love To Ponder at 10:01 AM on Sunday Morning

E ighteen hours ago, brothers and sisters in New Zealand gathered to worship God. City by city and church by church they joined their voices together to praise him in song, to call out to him in prayer, and to hear from him through the Word. So, too, did believers in the easternmost reaches of Russia. As their worship services drew near to a close, Australians in Sydney, then Adelaide, then Perth began to sing their own calls to worship, as did Christians in Japan and Korea. N...

Iceland Airwaves Is First Int'l Festival To Close Gender Gap

Iceland Airwaves has become the first major international festival outside of the U.S. to close the gender gap. Their move is a part of the global initiative Keychange, in which 109 festivals pledged last September to further gender equality at music festivals with the goal of achieving an equal gender ratio by 2020. In explaining just how simple it actually was for the festival to meet such a goal, Iceland Airwaves’ head of operations Will Larnach-Jones, recently told the New York Times:...

The second night of XRIJF ... a night that almost wasn't (at least for me...), but happy it was!

Those reading my post yesterday about Day 1 and Twitter will know that I had a car issue yesterday that threatened to delay me getting downtown for the second night of XRIJF.  The AC started pouring water into the passenger side of the cabin while we were driving to a graduation party for a friend.   Since our house AC went out a couple weeks ago, I thought "oh no, not the car too!).  As we happened to be near the dealer, we took it in and luckily it wasn't a big deal.  I made it downtown a litt...

New Music This Week: Camila Cabello Drinks Sangria, Jessie Reyes Racks Up A Body Count & More

Pharrell Williams x Camila Cabello "Sangria Wine"Pharrell and Camila started a thing when they worked on "Havana" together (he contributed backing vocals to the song and helped her pace that staccato delivery).

Tiffany Dufu Explains Why Every Woman Needs A Cru

In 2013, Tiffany Dufu did something completely contrary to the philosophy in her bestselling book, Drop The Ball.

The World's Best Spa Treatments Aren't In A Spa

You could write off a day at the spa as gratuitous, an indulgent pastime reserved for the rich and the privileged, the same people who can afford to stay in Aman hotels and resorts every time they travel. But then you'd be ignoring the timeworn history of the spa, wherein the curative powers of medicinal water have been embraced and made use of since prehistoric times — like, literally forever.But with that said, a $40 day pass to Spa Castle does not always a truly restorative experience make. ...
