The Skinny On The Teatox Trend

Health trends are nothing new; anyone who has been on any detox or diet plan knows this. Every program or method has time in the spotlight for a while. In the recent past, juicing had a front and center spot in the world of health and weight loss. Now, the tides have turned to make room for so-called “teatox” plans. They are talked about in blogs, gyms, offices, and are plastered around all major social media outlets. Tea had finally come back into the spotlight, having been cast out byRead More

Judging America

“Judging America” is the latest series from photographer Joel Parés. The series is first presented as a simple portrait GIF that baits you into judging his models by his or hers ethnicity, sexual orientation, or profession, and then, just when think you’ve think you’ve correctly identified who that person is, their true selves are revealed. The portraits share a powerful message that good, successful and talented people come from all walks of life.  Read More

There are a lot of silly online quizzes, but the Myers-Briggs Personality quiz is not one of them.  Based on the ideas founded by legendary psychiatrist, Carl Jung, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is a personal assessment of oneself based on four categories and provides a deep insight into aspects of one’s personality.  The four categories of preferences are general attitude (extroversion versus introversion), perception (sensing versus intuition), judging (thinking versus feeling), and the judging-perceiving relationship (judging versus perceiving).   Most people cannot be categorized so cut and dry, so yourRead More
They’re not the most convenient, easy to use, or forgiving machines, but there was a point in time where typewriters were the staple of society. While truly productive life has moved on to more user-friendly methods of production (like Microsoft Word), it’s good to be able to appreciate them for what they are– niche, a little obnoxious, and a quite a bit of fun. There’s something intensely satisfying about putting ink to paper, but, if you’re anything like me, your handwriting rivals that of the medical industry. While I may notRead More

Leonardo DiCaprio was the UN Messenger of Peace at the opening of the UN Climate Summit 2014. DiCaprio mentioned all the people that know about the reality of the difficult task of climate change, from the scientific community, industry, governments, and military. Most importantly, we, the collective people know it. We know that climate change is happening with no one to blame but ourselves. It is our greatest challenge today. Yet, it is still OUR challenge. Will YOU accept it?Read More

On Last Week Tonight with John Oliver the most recent impactful rant was about the Miss America Pageant. John Oliver questioned how the Miss America Pageant is even still relevant? From the stupid questions they ask during interviews, to the swimsuit competition, judging criteria, and other nonsense of the show, Miss America even claims to be “the world’s largest provider of scholarships for women.” Watch the video and see how absurd it really is. Should Miss America still be around with all of these claims? Photo Source: youtube.comRead More

Emma Watson just gave a remarkable speech on feminism to the United Nations. And for the fellas, before you decide to laugh and move on to the next post on this site, you really should watch this speech. Why, you ask? Because this video and concept involves you too (so keep reading). It involves everyone regardless of gender. If you’ve ever had your sexuality questioned or ever been “less manly” or “less of a man” or even “too manly,” then this undoubtedly affects you too. In the pursuit of genderRead More
