Strangely, I had never seen it before the other day, when I happened across it while researching Southside Johnny's Hearts of Stone. Frank Stefanko took the picture for...

People are using the viral '10-year challenge' as a stark warning about what's happening to our planet

Social media feeds are currently filled with "10-year challenge" posts that juxtapose users' photos from 2009 and 2019. Environmental activists are using the trend to draw attention to how much Earth has changed in the last 10 years, posting side-by-side images of our planet's recent transformation. This year has started off with a slew of depressing news about climate change: Last year was the hottest year on record for the world's oceans (which are also warming up faster than we thought), an...

A look at Birdies, the popular slipper shoe startup that just raised $8 million more from investors

Bianca Gates is a first-generation American, her parents having immigrated to the U.S. from Latin America. As such, she says, after waitressing her way through college at UC Irvine, she was expected to get a safe job with a 401(k) plan and to live with her parents until she was married. Things haven’t gone exactly that way, but one can imagine Gates’s parents feeling pretty satisfied with their daughter’s trajectory nevertheless. The reason: Gates, along with cofounder Marisa Sharkey, are the co...

Muslim-American Journalist Noor Tagouri Says Vogue Misrepresented Her

"I have so many more part-related questions, but I’ll limit it to just a few for the sake of my word count (and your time)..."

Do you agree with my mom that middle parts are 'less flattering'?..."From "How, When and Why Did Middle Parts Become Cool?" by Harling Ross (at Man Repeller).For the record, her mom's position was: "I’m just saying, I’ve always heard the philosophy that wearing your part in the middle emphasizes the asymmetries of your face, which is why side parts are more flattering.
