San Fernando Valley couple who survived coronavirus offers a message to America

Farah Toutounchian, diagnosed with coronavirus, refused to be escorted to an ambulance. Instead, she sat in protest, cross-legged on the floor just outside a gangway to the Diamond Princess cruise ship on which she was a passenger, quarantined at the Port of Yokohama. Surrounded by people in hazmat gear, she begged for one thing: to be taken to the same hospital that was already caring for her husband, who also had novel coronavirus. “I was getting ready to die and I wanted to be next to my husb...

Free grocery delivery in Jersey City

As reports flood in from across the country of toilet-paper shortages and grocery store shelves picked clean, it’s difficult to not feel disheartened by inconsiderate neighbors. Food shortages created by panicked shoppers add more unnecessary stress for those who are especially vulnerable, like elderly, pregnant, and immunocompromised people. And then there are the people who simply can’t afford to stock up the one month’s worth of food they’ll need during shelter-in-place edicts, like servic...

Best constellations to see in spring

Given its diameter of over 100,000 light-years across and the more than 100 billion stars calling it home, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the vastness of the Milky Way. Humanity’s knowledge of our galaxy’s formation is as ever-evolving as the galaxy itself, but we do know one thing for sure — it’s a hell of a lot of fun to look up at the sky on a clear night. Throwing a towel down in the yard and gazing upward is one of the few out-of-the-house things we can do to quell our wanderlust in the...

Exercising outside while distancing

If ever there were a time to be a couch potato without feeling guilty or unproductive, it’s now. But staying home doing nothing gets old pretty quick for those used to being active outdoors, particularly when spring has sprung and the sun is shining over your favorite local trail. But is it safe to walk, hike, bike, or go for a run during a global pandemic? While specific situations vary, the general answer is a cautious “yes.” Simply stepping outside into the fresh air is not going to expos...

Best songs to sing in groups

Now, more than ever, it’s time to sing. We shall sing in our showers. We shall sing from our cars. We shall sing to our pets and to our friends — over Skype. And to our neighbors — from our balconies. You’re likely not too bad at it, right? What with all those late-night karaoke sessions with your inebriated co-workers. Maybe you’re even a professional musician, or a part-time rockstar in your local band. Even if every time you sing, birds scatter and wine glasses shatter, the benefits of si...

Types of mole in Oaxaca

Mole is one of Mexico’s most complex and historic sauces. The name comes from the Nahuatl word molli, and it refers to a category of viscous sauces (salsas espesas) that can have more than 30 ingredients. In Oaxaca, known as the Land of Seven Moles, these sauces range in flavor, color, and popularity, but they all inspire (in the eater) a passionate allegiance to undermine the minimalist cooking movement. Mole can be spread over pretty much anything, but one of the most traditional uses is to...

8 strategic hotel financing options during COVID-19 | By Harry George Spirides

Along with all the other industries around the world, the U.S. hotel industry has been blindsided by the COVID-19 pandemic. Instantly, hotel owners have found themselves with empty hotels and depleted cash reserves, wondering how they will be able to make their monthly mortgage payments and payroll—things hardly ever considered to be a problem in the expansionary period leading up to COVID-19.

Distilleries making hand sanitizer

Craft distillers may well prove to be the Henry Fords of the COVID-era. Much like Ford famously repurposed his auto plants to make thousands of airplanes needed during World War II, craft distilleries are repurposing their stills to help fight the spread of the coronavirus. When people bought the country out of hand sanitizer — an alcohol-based product — last week, distilleries from Oregon to Alabama to Canada realized this was an opportunity to use their facilities for the greater good.
