Men Don’t Need ‘Masculine’ Beauty Products

By |2021-01-20T13:06:59-06:00January 20th, 2021|Tech Tips|


Photo: WAYHOME studio (Shutterstock) There is a certain gendered order to the marketing world: Products aimed at women must be purchased and used by women; products that cater to male needs must be purchased and used by men. The result is a siloed notion of what qualifies as a socially acceptable beauty product. But that’s a bunch of bullshit. Or to put things more politely: especially as our perceptions of gender evolve, it’s worth it discuss this old presumption for what it is—a marketing deception. While some products, such […]

5 Lightweight Truck Campers with Bathrooms in 2021

By |2021-01-20T13:06:52-06:00January 20th, 2021|Tech Tips|


Lightweight truck campers can be the perfect travel solution for many adventurers. They don’t take up as much room as a Class A motorhome so they’re great for quick, light travel. Also, the camper attachment can be removed and left at your campsite while you explore in your truck for the day. You don’t need to worry about bringing along a second vehicle like you might with a larger RV. What is a lightweight truck camper? A lightweight truck camper attaches to the bed of your pickup truck, turning […]

If You’re Still Trying to Make Dalgona Coffee This Cuisinart Hand Blender Can Help

By |2021-01-20T12:50:51-06:00January 20th, 2021|Tech Tips|


Remember at the beginning of quarantine sixty years ago when everyone was trying to make Dalgona coffee. Apparently, it’s easier than it looked, but I quickly abandoned the idea because I did not have a hand mixer or frother. Today 61% on this one from Cuisinart for just $29 . In the reviews, I like that someone brought up how portable and lightweight it is, which I guess if you have a coffee/milk emergency, you could carry it with you. But it does look easy to operate with just […]

A Playlist for Saying Goodbye

By |2021-01-20T12:50:49-06:00January 20th, 2021|Tech Tips|


Graphic: Cosmic_Design (Shutterstock) There’s a reason they sell pre-printed greeting cards. When it comes to expressing real, heartfelt emotion, some of us aren’t so great with the putting things into words. Better to let the poets at Hallmark express our sentiments with more alacrity than we could ever manage. And the same goes for songs. There’s a pop song for every emotion, which means there is a potential playlist for every occasion. For some reason, I awoke today thinking about how hard it can be to say goodbye—even when […]

By |2021-01-20T12:50:45-06:00January 20th, 2021|Tech Tips|


Photo: ARIMAG (Shutterstock) With the festive parts of winter securely behind us, but a whole lot of non-festive winter still ahead, you may be wondering how the hell you’re going to pass the days with your kids over the coming months. For those of us in cold areas, we’ve still got the rest of January, all of February, followed by February #2 (I’ve heard this referred to as “March”), as well as whatever April—a noted wild card—bring us.

How to Use ‘Sound Bites’ for a More Effective Job Interview

By |2021-01-20T12:50:43-06:00January 20th, 2021|Tech Tips|


Photo: fizkes (Shutterstock) You can’t plan out every last line of dialogue in a job interview—nor should you—but you can plan a few things you want to get across. One good way to do that is to create a list of “sound bites”—that is, a few memorized phrases or sentences that you want to get across during your interview. How to use sound bites This may seem a little insincere, but even if you get along well with the interviewer it’s important to remember that you’re not having a […]

Hit the Political ‘Reset’ Button With Your Kids

By |2021-01-20T12:50:41-06:00January 20th, 2021|Tech Tips|


Photo: In Green (Shutterstock) Talking to our kids about politics through the past four years has been no easy feat. These have not been normal political times. We, as a people, have shouted more than we’ve debated—and the arguments have been less about policy than about our very morals and values. Teaching our kids simple lessons about citizenship—and all its rights and duties—might have felt trite when it seemed like democracy itself was at stake, even as recently as a week ago. Our kids saw the images of Americans […]

By |2021-01-20T12:50:39-06:00January 20th, 2021|Tech Tips|


Screenshot: Sony Pictures/YouTube This month, the slate of new content dropping on Hulu offers a study in contrasts. On one hand, we have Nomadland (Feb. 19), a quiet film about American aimlessness, and one of the most acclaimed films of the past year. On the other, we have Sonic the Hedgehog (Feb. 18), the story of a hedgehog who can run very fast, and one of the top grossing movies of 2020 by pandemic default. Does this matchup presage a face-off at the Oscars in April? No, it does […]

You Should Air Fry Wet Tortellini

By |2021-01-20T12:50:33-06:00January 20th, 2021|Tech Tips|


Photo: Claire Lower The air fryer is the perfect appliance for the discerning stoner. It’s speedy, with a super quick pre-heat time, and every single frozen treat I’ve put into it comes out crispier than its microwaved—or even baked!—counterparts. Pizza rolls, french fries, frozen egg rolls: All come out of the air fryer golden, hot, and munch-able. Most foods of this nature can be tossed, without further futzing or preparation, into the air fryer’s basket or tray, then removed 10-15 minutes later with excellent results. This is mostly due […]

Is Garmin Stock a Buy?

By |2021-01-20T10:08:18-06:00January 20th, 2021|Tech Tips|


The pandemic reinforced some new consumer trends and accelerated innovation in many businesses, and Garmin (NASDAQ: GRMN) is taking advantage. Its business rebounded quickly from a second-quarter sales slump amid the pandemic. That recovery came swiftly as interest in outdoor activities and exercise emerged as popular trends. Garmin also introduced products that took advantage of trends like the growing popularity of boating and recreational vehicles (RVs). Image source: Getty Images. A transformed product portfolio Garmin has four growing product segments that made up almost 90% of net sales in […]
