Hola! If you are a longtime reader of this blog (or blogs in general), you would know how blogging as a hobby has been sort of replaced by things like Instagram, tweets, and so on and so forth. Both in general and for me. And how blogging is now a lot more "content marketing" where companies pay peanuts to desk monkeys to churn out words that trap those search engine spiders logs. And how the "content" that is created does not really do anything good to any reader, even if they may want to read ...

While it’s seemed like an exciting product for the founders bui...

Nike's Vaporfly shoes have been involved in nearly every major running victory and milestone since 2016. Research suggests the Vaporfly soles give runners more energetic efficiency: at least a 4% boost over shoes from competing brands.

The plaintiff canceled the test results, including the defendant’s. As you can imagine, this event roiled the clubby wine world. The defendant kept holding himself out as a master sommelier, ...

Now, he’s sending them to cities like Chicago and Albuquerque, because he sees his best shot at re-election dependent upon an uprising of Red State vote...

I ended up in Serbia unexpectedly as the first part of my move to Prague, where my UK-born boyfriend has lived for 18 years, and where I was supposed to move in May. We have been banned from ea...
