Juul is spending $10 million on a TV ad campaign aimed at adults, amid criticism that its e-cigarettes get teens hooked

Juul, the popular e-cigarette company, announced it will be launching a $10 million TV advertisement campaign featuring ex-cigarette smokers who have made the switch to Juul's e-cigarettes. This comes after the company experienced a tumultuous year, as health officials and regulators criticized its use of social media ads and flavor options, considered to be aimed at underage teens.  Juul is pitching the commercials as aimed at adults who already have a nicotine habit, rather than encouraging ...

Comment on cozy cabbage and farro soup by Mimi

This looks absolutely delicious! I must be the only one who doesn’t think the color is a problem. I have a quick question about your jars. Where oh where is that adorable jar (with the broth in it) from? Do you freeze your stock in it or can it crack in the freezer?

Singapore Airlines Killing Close-In Waitlisting For Award Travel

Back in 2012 I waitlisted Mimi and me for Singapore Suites at the saver award level when it first became available for miles. The waitlist cleared and we were able to redeem tickets in a couples suite for just 57K Singapore miles each. It was truly incredible to have that kind of space on a […]

You Can Currently Redeem United Or Star Alliance Miles For Singapore Suites On Select Routes

Generally speaking, you need to use Singapore miles to book business or first class awards on Singapore’s premium planes. When Singapore first launched suites you couldn’t use saver miles for them, but when they started releasing suites for saver awards in December 2012 I redeemed Singapore miles and hopped on a plane with Mimi to […]

How the Framing of ‘A Private War’ Does a Disservice to Its Subject – And Misses the Point Entirely

“I want people to know your story.” A Private War recognizes, in words, Marie Colvin’s ethos right from the get-go. Her mission, first and foremost, was to speak truth to power, unearthing the horrors bequeathed to civilians by leaders and governments. Rosamund Pike, who plays her in the film, repeats this mantra frequently, stressing the importance of telling individual stories from the world’s war-torn regions. Men buried in secret for decades (“ Uncovered: the secret grave of 600 murdered...

Comment on falafel by Mimi

I made them tonight, I soaked chickpeas overnight (double batch) and let mixture sit as instructed at least 5 hours. Mixture was very wet also. Eventually sat mixture in a sieve and pushed a lot of liquid out and used cookie scoop to make scoops but as Delia said they were not going to be rolled into balls so stayed as domes. They were delicious but some succumbed and disintegrated when slid into the oil. Did not add flour and am glad but there needs to be some adjustment or mention in method th...

Not all "screen time" is created equal

The debates about screen time and kids are really confused: the studies have contradictory findings, and the ones that find negative outcomes in kids who spend a lot of time on their screens struggle to figure out the cause-and-effect relationship (are depressed kids using screens more because that's how they get help, or do kids become depressed if they use their screen a lot?). It's obvious that not all screen time is created equal: games aren't social media, social media isn't Youtube. W...

UCLA men’s basketball fuels winning streak with defense

LOS ANGELES — Kris Wilkes got the dogpile celebration, the postgame hugs and the headlines, but days after the sophomore’s game-winning 3-pointer lifted UCLA over Notre Dame, head coach Steve Alford called another moment “the biggest play of the game.” It was redshirt freshman Jalen Hill’s volleyball-like spike off the backboard that started the fast break that led to Wilkes’ winning shot with 0.9 seconds left. Perhaps it’s fitting the most critical play came on the defensive end for a UCLA team...

Comment on falafel by Mimi

I’ve come here looking for a falafel recipe at least a dozen times over the years. You have such a great repertoire of hummus/Israeli salad/tahini foods that I always think you have falafel floating around too. I usually end up falling down a Google rabbit hole until I settle on a recipe, but I’ve never been thrilled with the outcome. And now finally! Thank you for presenting us with a version I’m positive will be perfect. Quick question: do you dress the Israeli salad with any lemon and oil or ...

First Look: Wilson Staff D7 Irons

What would you say is the key difference between a Super Game Improvement iron and an iron in the emerging Players Distance category? First, let’s look at the similarities. The SGI category promises forgiveness and distance for straighter, longer shots. Workability, of course, isn’t part of the equation. Players Distance promises distance and forgiveness for longer, straighter shots, with enough potential workability to make a better player swoon. Seeing any common threads? Put the two irons sid...

Comment on green bean casserole with crispy onions by Mimi

I made this last year for Thanksgiving. I made Alton Brown’s original the year before. I find canned cream of x soup gross but my family demands “GBC.” I definitely prefer the thicker consistency of the SK version and may thicken it up even more this year. Since I’m making so many other dishes this year and i have a toddler, I’m using store bought fried onions. After slaving over the homemade the last 2 years (my mother watched completely baffled as I spent probably an hour prepping this compare...

Comment on best challah (egg bread) by Mimi

I make this challah so often, and it’s always delicious! I have a challah braiding issue that arises no matter what recipe I use, and that is that my braid splits in the oven. It’s not that the braid opens at the ends, but I get splitting in all the “valleys” or seams in between the raised braided areas. Yours are so perfect in your pictures, and I’m wondering if you have a trick to prevent that. I’ve researched online over and over, and everyone keeps saying it is the result of the crust set...

Holiday Fever: Causes and Cures

I don’t know about you, but I don’t like being told when I’m supposed to feel happy, generous, and loving toward absolutely everyone. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not a Bah Humbug Scrooge sort of person. I just want to be me, meaning to be happy and generous when I’m feeling that way in my heart, not when prescribed to be, well, saintly. Enter the holiday season: Thanksgiving, Chanukah, Kwanza, Christmas, and probably others that may be off my radar. Whatever we celebrate or don’t, we’re bombar...
