In June, Hobby Lobby became the world’s most infamous craft store after the Supreme Court ruled that the company could deny employees' birth control based on religious objections. Of course, this landmark decision has open up a stream of terrible implications regarding birth control rights for other employees across America, potentially limiting access for those who cannot afford expensive, out-of-pocket prescriptions. This past weekend, the Obama ... Read More

It’s really frustrating that it sometimes takes super depressing PSAs to make us address our unsafe behavior and do something about it, but you should watch this one, even though it will make you cry your eyeballs out.DON’T TEXT AND DRIVE BUSTETTES!

Working out shouldn’t have to feel like a chore. I am a firm believer that if you’re not getting an emotional boost from exercising, or if it leaves you feeling tired and blah rather than proud and pumped, you’re doing something wrong. As a kid, I could spend hours (yes, hours) in the ocean or running around with my friends in the school yard. I was always on. Now that I’m older, I have to make a conscious effort to get a decent amount ... Read More

Meow! It’s Friday! It’s been a long week, and you deserve something for all the hard work you’ve done. You’re awesome. And because you're so awesome, what better reward than a bunch of photos of cats standing on their hind legs? Believe me, you don’t know how important these are. These photos sure do raise a lot of questions. For example, why are they standing up?? That's actually the only question, the answer to ... Read More

Oh my gosh, this is everything.
This outtake from Amy Poehler’s new Old Navy commercial is nothing if not a true work of art.
“[It’s] aggressive, it’s dangerous, it’s stupid, and that’s why I like it,” she quips, mocking the lingo of many a pretentious art dealer. The short clip is full of those kinds of gold nuggets, and is a hilarious commentary on the vague, highfalutin language of the art ... Read More

Mo’ne Davis, a 13-year-old from Philadelphia, threw a two-hitter this past weekend at her team’s opening game at the Little League World Series. For those of you who aren’t familiar with baseball lingo, that’s pretty damn good. Davis is only one of the two female players at the LLWS, and is now the first female pitcher in history to win ...
