How To Hack Your Oscars' Night Food Orders — According To Grubhub

With one of the biggest award-events of the season around the corner, we've got food on the brain — because if there's one thing that excites us more than the red carpet, it's planning our viewing party menus.

Which is exactly why we consulted the pros at Grubhub (who recently made our 2019 meal dreams come true with a VIP Taco Bell partnership) for inside...

Behavior Modification doesn’t modify behaviors: an essay on why it fails and what to use

I recently chatted with a VC invested in 15 healthcare apps that use Behavior Modification to facilitate patients through permanent behavior change for enhanced health. He said although many of his apps use it, there’s no scientific evidence that Behavior Modification works. Hmmmm… And the reason you’re still using it is… “There’s nothing else to use.” I contend that current Behavior Mod approaches are not only faulty, but seriously harmful to a large population of people who need to consider pe...

The Best & Boldest Beauty Looks From London Fashion Week AW19

From brushed up brows to simple center parts, fresh skin, and subtly glossy lips, pared down simplicity is usually the go-to at London Fashion Week. But last season, the city was turned on its head with glitter-splashed eyeliner glimmering from the catwalk at Halpern, slapdash pastel eyeshadow at Erdem, and "troll" inspired hair embellished with rhinestone pins at Ashley Williams.It looks like Autumn/Winter 2019 is shaping up to be bigger and better, however. Thanks to makeup artists such as Mi...

Hundreds Still Live In The 'Exclusion Zone' Around Chernobyl

This weekend the BBC reports on the site of the Chernobyl nuclear plant explosion -- where "robotic cranes are dismantling 33-year-old, radioactive wreckage" -- investigating an area of more than 4,000 square kilometres [2,485 square miles] that's been abandoned since 1986. "That could be about to change..." An anonymous reader summarizes their report: "Every community within a 30km radius [18.9 miles] of the plant was evacuated and abandoned; no one was allowed to return here to live." Yet the...

You May Not See Me On TV, But Parkland Is My Story, Too.

My name is Kyrah Simon. I’m a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL, and lost a childhood friend, Helena Ramsay, in the shooting that occurred last year. I always have to introduce myself that way so people don’t invalidate my story. Every interview is a reiteration of who I am, why I even matter, and a neat sound bite so self-proclaimed liberals can cheer on their “Parkland hero.”At first, I thought it was worth it. I was getting my voice out there, being outspoken, be...

How Activism Helped Heal My Grief After My Father Was Shot & Killed

On my first day back to high school after my dad, a beloved history teacher, was shot and killed outside the school where he taught in New Jersey, I wanted to disappear into the walls. At my locker, I used drained reserves of strength to force a fake smile. Friends walked towards me, braced for my inevitable meltdown, but I said hello as if nothing had happened. They appeared appropriately baffled. Ignoring their confusion, I asked about their weekends, determined to act like it was any other M...

Comment on ruffled milk pie by Maria

This is a delicious recipe-and Vefa is an incredible resource for Greek recipes. You could eat a different Greek pie made with philo ( sweet and savory) every day of the year-it’s nice to have seen one posted for something other than spanakopita. I wanted to make a comment about working with the dreaded philo. It is actually extremely easy to work with IF you can find philo that is as fresh as possible. I find that I need to purchase it from a Greek food store ( that obviously sees a very hig...
