ANNOUNCEMENT: New Impulsive Buy Reviewer Erin

Well this is exciting and slightly awkward. I get to introduce myself! Hello! My name is Erin, and I’m so bad at introductions that when they occur in person, whoever I’m meeting usually ends up thinking my name is Karen. I’m then faced with the difficult decision of correcting them or just pretending to be Karen for the rest of the time we know each other. Thankfully I’m a little better at writing than speaking, so that shouldn’t be a problem here. For as long as I can remember of my thirtyish ...

Hunting and Fishing Like Adults

"Shooting in a private game preserve is but a dismal parody; the manliest and healthiest features of the sport are lost with the change of conditions." . . . . — Theodore Roosevelt, 1893The Indianapolis Star put together a long feature on deer farms that breed trophy bucks  for "guaranteed hunts".The ethics of "guaranteed hunts" has sparked considerable debate in the hunting community. I have my own opinion on the matter (surprise!), but let's  see if we can fence this debate in a bit. Someti...

Confused Immigrants on a Wire

Birds on a wire. Starlings, of course.When out with the dogs in winter, we often see large flocks of starlings, often with cowbirds and blackbirds mixed in, winging down to settle on cut-over corn fields and soy rakes, huddled on the lee side of shed roofs, and even settling on roads in order to make use of the warmth radiating up from the black tarmac.Believe it or not, the more than 200 million European Starlings found in North America today are direct descendents of approximately 100 birds in...

I ate a day's worth of meals from Too Good To Go, here's how my first time using the app went

Too Good To Go I decided to eat a day's worth of meals from the app Too Good To Go, which tries to eliminate food waste. I ordered from Dunkin Donuts, Le Pain Quotidien, and a local sushi place called Sushi Capitol. I think the app is worth it when you want to occasionally treat yourself to food you may not typically get to eat. Living in Washington, DC makes the habit of eating out fairly expensive.I typically only dine out once a week and try to only spend an allotted amount when I do. ...

It’s Turkey Trot Season Once Again

The post It’s Turkey Trot Season Once Again appeared first on iRunFar. Ever since I began distance running in the late 1980s, one of my favorite annual rituals has been to run a turkey trot on the U.S.’s Thanksgiving Day. This uniquely American tradition of running a race the morning of Thanksgiving has been part of the holiday season for as long as anyone can remember. And, since I’ve moved around a lot in my adult life, I’ve had the opportunity to run turkey trots in a host of different place...

Your First Startup Job

When Julisa Salas told me she wanted to join a startup, I was worried. Her background was not exactly typical for StartUpLand and I was concerned her search would end in disappointment. Julisa had been a liberal arts major (English Language and Literature) who secured her first job out of college at a large investment bank before returning to school for her MBA. Capable, smart and personable, she was also the type of candidate that most startups shy away from — no technical background, zero sta...

Wonderfully Wet in Western North Carolina

A few weekends ago I met up with a few of my East Coast fixed line fishing friends for a little getaway in the hills of Western North Carolina. This escape had been planned for quite some time, and in the days leading up to the rendezvous, the chatter in our text messaging group was indicating that everyone was very excited. I was too. Fishing with friends on "new-to-me" water... with nights in frankly an upscale cabin (with its own trout stream in the backyard)... it doesn't get much better t...

I Dream of Julie

Here in Hollywood, we have many theories about how to get material into the right hands. An old film school friend once told me if you're convinced you have a great screenplay, toss it out the window on the freeway to make sure. His name was Greg, and he had been a successful musician, touring the world with any number of jazz legends before setting his sights on screenwriting. Like me, he had been living a dream life, just not his dream. Having stumbled into our earlier creative successes, we f...

The 15 Best Amazon Prime Original Series

Amazon Prime was not the first streamer to produce original content, but over the years it has developed a solid block of programming that can go toe-to-toe against anyone else in the game. Since 2013, when the first original shows began to stream on Amazon Prime, its reputation has only risen. In the beginning, many of Amazon's shows were underrated gems that flew under the radar, struggling to compete with the larger efforts from network and cable television, to say nothing of competitors like...
