A megathread of dirty industry secrets that you'll be glad you know even as you wish you didn't

Holly, a Harvard seminarian and activist, invited Twitter users to DM her the dirty secrets of their industries, which she then anonymized and posted in a megathread with more than 600 parts (as of this writing); while many of them are mild or self-evident, many of them are the kind of sphincter-tightening or blood-boiling confessions that you always suspected might be true but hoped like hell were not. Some of them are also a little uplifting (library workers are reliably helpers with immi...

Netflix thinks ‘Fortnite’ is a bigger threat than HBO

Netflix thinks “Fortnite” is a bigger threat to its business than HBO. The company in its latest quarterly earnings report released on Thursday said that while its streaming service now accounts for around 10 percent of TV screen time in the U.S., it no longer views its competition only as those services also providing TV content and streaming video. “We compete with (and lose to) ‘Fortnite more than HBO,” the company’s shareholder letter stated. “When YouTube went down globally for a few minute...

4 Simple Ways To Save On Your Cell Phone Bill

Having a cell phone was a luxury years ago, but it’s now considered by many as a must-have. I bet most people would probably admit that they couldn’t live without their phones. The privilege doesn’t come cheap though. Aside from buying the phone itself (which can cost hundred of dollars), you’re also paying a monthly bill that’s far from cheap. At more than $100 each month, that cellphone bill could be a huge drag to your wallet. Luckily, you don’t have to pay a lot to get what you need. Let’s...

Bob Hertzberg embraces an active final term in California Legislature

After more than a decade out of public office, Bob Hertzberg strode back into Sacramento four years ago to find state politics had changed. The game was different, with new rules and a new online playing field. The players were new, too, and no longer called him Mr. Speaker. Not all of them enjoyed what he viewed as a friendly hug, the way human beings used to. The one-time California Assembly boss, one-time Los Angeles mayoral contender and all-time big thinker said recently of his first term i...

The healthiest countries to move to

Being healthier is one of the most popular of New Year’s resolutions. For some, this may include making big life changes — like moving — that make it easier to get and stay healthy. And healthy places aren’t just those with lots of gyms and juice bars. Places to make lifestyle changes are those that share a worldview of health — where physical health is important but so are access to outdoor activities, mental health, low-stress levels, fresh food, quality healthcare, and strong, supportive ...

Stay in the Middle of the Magic at the Disneyland Hotel, Anaheim

My head hit the pillow and I snuggled down into a soft cloud. Oh My goodness this bed is comfortable. I felt the exhaustion drain out of my body and my last thoughts before slipping into dreams of magic carpet rides was, “Oh this is exactly what the body needs after a long day at Disneyland.” And then at 5:05 I woke up. No alarms needed. I felt refreshed, alert and in awe of how I had slept like a log (not a baby as they don’t sleep). The girls had succumbed to the comfort that evening as well....
