Tongass National Park is one of the world’s great, unspoiled forests – and it’s home to more brown bears than anywhere else on earthThrough the droplets on the binoculars, some distance away, two unidentifiable creatures appear to be wading across the tidal creek. Deer? Wolf? Moose? A faraway brown bear and cub, in fact. We watch as the maple-brown carnivores lumber straight for our group, swallowing up the space between us.

US LGBTQ and Pride events in 2020

Let’s get one thing straight — LGBTQ people know how to throw one hell of a party, and in the United States, there’s no shortage of creativity when it comes to curating a queer shindig. From ski-slope soirees to fetish-themed festivals, the only thing more difficult than choosing which events to attend in 2020 is choosing who to vote for in the Democratic primary. Luckily, choosing from this list of epic LGBTQ gatherings is a win-win situation. Editor’s note: Queer culture doesn’t begin and e...

The Best Credit Card Signup Bonuses

The right signup bonus can easily pay for a round of international flights. You’ll usually have to hit a spending requirement, like spending $3,000 within 3 months on your new card. If you’re planning on a big purchase already, getting a new card at the same time could give you a huge batch of points. I’ve been thinking of switching one of my credit cards.

A Quarter of U.S. Residents Will Be Over Age 65 by 2060, Census Bureau Says

(ORLANDO, Fla.) — By 2060, almost a quarter of all U.S. residents will be over age 65, and life expectancy will reach an all-time high of 85 years, according to new reports the U.S. Census Bureau released Thursday.

Between 1970 and 2015, life expectancy rose by almost 8 years, but it’s only predicted to rise about 6 years between 2017 and 2060. That’s becau...

The idea to tour the Pacific coast by bike came to me slowly, in pieces. I wanted to challenge myself physically and mentally. I wanted to see the world with a minimal carbon footprint. Most of all, I wanted to travel alone, sure the experience would change me for the better. Ideas percolated for a year or so before I came across the Bicycling the Pacific Coast guidebook by Vicky Spring and Tom Kirkendall. The route looked challenging but popular enough to be safe for solo travel. That settled i...

Valley-inspired candles ignite aroma of nostalgia … and Northridge, Pacoima and Ventura Boulevard, too

By Marianne Love, Correspondent The San Fernando Valley has been memorialized in many ways. There are museums about its history. Painting and sculptures depicting days and people gone by. But for Michelle Alvarado, it’s candles and the sights and smells that make up her fondness for the valley where she moved at two years old. Her scented candles are named after such valley icons as “Northridge CA,” a sweet orange aroma representing the citrus groves that once LDN-L-VALCANDLES-0209dominated the ...
