Photo: fizkes (Shutterstock) Breaking up, as they say, is hard to do. Everyone needs guidance when it comes to ending things, but usually, advice focuses on how to know you want to break up or how to cope with all the emotions afterward . One of the worst parts, though, is actually doing the damn thing. According to stats culled by Preply , a global language learning organization, over half a million people around the world Google “how to break up with someone” every year. […]

Photo: Gerain0812 (Shutterstock) Yesterday, I read an article that claimed brie was the “best” cheese to put on your burger. I was, frankly, a little stunned. I’m a big fan of brie, and a big fan of a big pan of brie , but the “best” burger cheese it is not. “Best” is a weird word to begin with. A lot of food writers will claim that their favorite thing is the “best,” because it is our job to generate clicks, and nothing gets clicks […]

Photo: Dzmitrock (Shutterstock) Chrome on Android is a very capable browser. It’s the default browser for most Android smartphones out there. And because it’s so popular, it hasn’t really changed over the last couple of years. It’s still good at browsing the web, but other than tab groups, we haven’t seen any major new features as of late. That doesn’t mean Google isn’t innovating or trying new things, however. The company has actually been testing dozens of new Chrome features for months or years that […]

Photo: Deutschlandreform (Shutterstock) The year was 2019. It was a simpler time, a time when, instead of monitoring the latest pandemic headlines , worrying about how to afford an entire tank of gas , and mourning the end of bodily autonomy , people were standing in long lines and arguing with strangers about Popeyes chicken sandwiches. Three years later, a lot has changed, most of it for the worse, but at least Popeyes is now giving away those (in)famous chicken sandwiches for free (or free-ish), […]

Photo: David Smart (Shutterstock) Americans, on average, juggle about 12 prescription medicines . While this number is certainly skewed by older folks who have racked up a lot of pills, many of us have been prescribed a prescription medicine we need to take every single day. But on the whole, we’re not very good at doing that— one study showed an incredible 50 percent of Americans fail to adhere to their medication schedules, meaning they regularly skip doses or simply forget about a medication altogether.

Photo: Monkey Business Images (Shutterstock) If you’ve been planning to buy a house, you may have noticed that it recently got a little more challenging. With inflation spooking politicians and economists alike, the Federal Reserve hiked interest rates 0.75% this month , and while that might not seem like much, it’s had a huge impact on the mortgage market. Interest rates on home mortgages have jumped to their highest levels in more than a decade. And affording the loan is one thing. Qualifying for it […]

And with a record number of people becoming one with nature, you’re going to have some unintended, but not completely unexpected, consequences. I am, of course, referring to the litany of people who’ve visited a national park and wound up on the wrong side of a bison attack. The National Park Service of Yellowstone Park says more […]

While this is good advice in general, sometimes we get stuck on the easy version of an exercise, not realizing that adding weight can actually make it easier . This post was inspired by our managing editor, Meghan Walbert, telling me that she tried some goblet squats after reading a post of […]

Photo: Sam Palazzi You may have noticed that a serpentine-shaped green vegetable has made its way to your local farmer’s market by the bushel. This time of year, when spring alliums —like green garlic and spring onions—begin to grow into their fully matured selves, garlic scapes make their fleeting appearance at the table. They may look like tangled green cords, but these stalks taste like a unique blend of vegetable and herb and pack a subdued, garlicky flavor into anything they touch. What are garlic […]

Image: The Day the Music Died/Promotional image Insightful documentary explorations into the most pressing issues of our day are all well and good, but given that I usually watch TV when I want to completely wall off my brain from the horrors of reality, I’ll take a YouTube-style deep dive into a piece of pop culture ephemera (almost) every time.
