If you’re a fan of Amy Sedaris’ crafting books, you will love Cathy Callahan’s new book, Vintage Craft Workshop: Fresh Takes on Twenty-Four Classic Projects from the ‘60s and ‘70s. Sedaris herself even said "One of the best craft books I've seen. This book makes me jealous."
Its organization is unlike any other crafting book that I have read. She provides historical context for each of the 24 crafts, showing where the ... Read More

Boys and girls perform equally in math and science testing when they begin elementary school, and show about the same level of enjoyment of the subjects. However, by 8th grade twice as many boys than girls are interested in STEM careers, (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) which are ultimately the fields with the highest growth rate and earning potential. This contributes to the gender pay gap among adults as well as various other inequalities. In ... Read More

In honor of the beloved singer, Amy Winehouse, who was found dead on Saturday at age 27, M.I.A. released an unfinished demo titled ‘27’ via her Twitter yesterday morning.
Listen to it here on M.I.A.'s Soundcloud, where she dedicated the song to all of her friends that died at 27. Despite being recorded prior to her ‘mixtape’ VICKI LEEKX, the lyrics are chillingly appropriate for the recent tragedy:

This hobbit-like dwelling stays cool in the summer without contributing to global ... Read More

They live off of the public resources, like toilets and running water, and eat leftover food left or donated by travelers. The children become a part of an underground economy by begging, selling, pick-pocketing, cleaning, shoe shining, ... Read More

New York is a pretty cool place. We all know about the endless supply of renowned museums, and Central Park is like a magical (though overcrowded) forest, but did you know that since 1992 it has been legal for women to be topless in public? Admittedly, it is still rare to actually see a woman brave enough to do so--just because it's legal doesn't mean it's socially acceptable--but on these hot July days it’s getting more and more tempting.
