April First Joke that Still Makes me Laugh and Yann Not so Much

    On April 1st the French give each other chocolate fish called: "Friture." The tradition has it that on the 1st of April children try to stick a homemade paper fish onto people’s backs without the person knowing it, then run away yelling, ‘Poisson d’Avril’ (April's Fish), which is like saying, "April Fools'!". The tagged person is meant to give the trickster fritures, small chocolate fishes. Since Easter is usually around April 1st, the chocolate fish "fritures" are also given at Easter...

5 Pillars of Health and Wellness Every Hotel Should Consider

Past studies have played an integral role in helping us decide on the best course to follow where our health is concerned. This includes the total time spent checking our phones, how we wrap and store food items and the overall amount of agents consumed by human beings on a single day.

How to see wolverines in Washington

When you tell folks that you’ve volunteered with a group that monitors wolverines in the North Cascades, their response is usually one of confusion. No, they don’t think you’re busy saving mutant X-men with retractable claws. They are amazed, though, that wolverines — stocky animals in the weasel family that look like small, bushy-tailed bears — even exist in Washington State. Those people are understandably stunned by the existence of these brown-and-black-hued carnivores because, like othe...

US modern Indian food movement

The shiny orange layer of slime sitting on top of the chicken thighs looked suspicious. The sign said “butter chicken,” but it looked more like what was left in the sink when I was done washing dishes. As an apprehensive 10-year-old, pretty much everything under the yellowing lights of the $8.95, all-you-can-eat buffet looked suspect. The walls were covered in pictures of the Taj Mahal, old Bollywood movies played on TV, and the entire place smelled like a New York City bodega took the conten...

My Ten Favorite Anime Series

At work I like to organize some fun times at the end of every week — I even have a name for it, the “Friday Fluke.” Part of it is getting a drink, relaxing a bit with colleagues, and playing some games (our go-to tends to be various forms of Werewolf). Last week I introduced a new part to it, and that’s to encourage everyone to do a presentation about something they’re passionate about using the PechaKucha format. The idea is to have fun and get to know each other better, so it can be abou...

Best day hikes near Atlanta

Hiking in the Atlanta area offers the unique perk of visiting many of Georgia’s most famous Civil War-era ruins, often hidden within forested confines. The grizzly Civil War history contrasts with the soothing effects of lush woods, gentle hills, and cascading rivers. Varying in difficulty from short, easy riverside walks to vigorous all-day climbs, these trails are a relaxing escape from the noise and breezeless heat of summer in the big city. Just don’t forget to stay hydrated. Indian Seat...
