Big things happened in the world of space exploration this week. China’s Chang'e 4 lander finally made it to the other side of the moon and touched down without a hitch. Image via China National Space Administration. And, like any good traveler, it is sending back some awesome postcards.

Go With Your Gifts

I've been having a conversation in the comments (noteworthy in itself as I usually don't even allow conversations in the comments—as I sometimes say, this isn't a forum) with a reader who, despite being of older age, is willing to remain flexible, change with the times, and reinvent himself if need be. That's admirable and I don't want to pretend otherwise. But he's insisting that I, too, should change with the times and become a vlogger (video blogger). Like Scotty Kilmer, for example. Another ...

This New Instagram Filter Is a Selfie Game-Changer, but There's a Catch

Image before and after the Paris filter. A few months ago, I received a pleasant surprise from Instagram. Sadly, it wasn't that my timeline was back to chronological order, but I did get a new filter. I saw it immediately because it was the first one to pop up as I swiped to the right. It's called Paris, and similar to how Snapchat has the "pretty filter," Paris blurs the skin so it looks immediately FaceTuned. It's like the contrast of the Oslo filter and the brightness of the Cairo filter had ...

Campo Felice: Skiing and Sledding in Abruzzo

While northern Italy is known worldwide as a premier location for snowing and sledding, it’s not the only place in the country to go for winter fun.

31 Instagram-Worthy Hairstyles To Try In January

When January 1 comes around, our optimism is at an all-time high. We're actually excited about going to the gym. We're downloading meditation apps on our phones and making a list of all the books we want to read. And when we're scrolling though Instagram and see a hairstyle we love, our reaction is more likely to be, "I can totally do this."But it's normal to lose that positivity in the days and weeks that follow.

Shooting a Car with a Polarizer Changed My Life

Photography for me has always been nothing more than a hobby, so it was never a high priority for me to get the best and most professional gear.
