Photographer Ryan McGinley is known for his electric lo-fi images of ecstatic youth, often revolving around naked 20-somethings galavanting through the wilderness ― lighting sparklers, jumping into waterfalls, and just generally looking young and wild and free.  His most recent series, however, features a very different subject: “LA dad on a juice cleanse” Brad Pitt, who is 53 years old and rebuilding his life following a public, ugly divorce from Angelina Jolie. The spread appears in GQ Style’s Summer issue, along with an interview by Michael Paterniti about Pitt’s life since his split from Jolie in September. The photographs are set in three national parks: the Floridian swamps of the Everglades, the crystalline dunes at White Sands and the crepuscular caves of[…]

A couple of months ago, I walked into the lobby of a New York City movie theater and was approached by a tall, lanky man in his late 20s wearing a backwards baseball hat. He asked if I cared about the environment, climate change and clean energy. He was trying to get Con Edison customers to switch to Green Mountain Energy by espousing the virtues of clean, renewable energy ― oh, and he’d give me a $10 AMC gift card. I ended up switching because I didn’t realize I had a choice of energy service company, nor that I had a say in how that energy was sourced. (As this site points out, it’s impossible to know where exactly energy comes[…]

When Le’Donne Morris began his career in graphic design and web development, he felt like something was missing. So he began to brainstorm a side job that would provide a creative outlet and a chance to channel some of his personal interests into a concrete product. The result, Limited Time Offer, is an enamel pin design business that draws its inspiration from his long time passions: pop culture and professional wrestling. “Personally, I started this because my day job lacks creativity, it helps fill that void,” said Morris, who prefers to go by Don. Of course, taking more than one job is nothing new and is often a means of survival. The Bureau of Labor Statistics found that in 2016,[…]

Since joining (re: falling head over heels for) the Tone It Up program, I’ve found myself becoming more and more of a morning person. While an 8 a.m. wake-up call used to feel excruciatingly early and like a sick form of punishment, I find myself feeling surprisingly comfortable at 5:55 a.m. lately, thanks to the TIU concept known as a “bootycall.” And not in the way you’re thinking. A “bootycall” (like a wake-up call for your booty . . . get it?) is a morning workout. While you can absolutely work out in the evening on this program, TIU’s trainers Karena Dawn and Katrina Scott constantly emphasize the importance of morning workouts specifically, and for good reasons. Here are a[…]

FBI Director James Comey revealed on Wednesday that the FBI’s actions affecting the outcome of the 2016 election made him “mildly nauseous,” subsequently causing lookups for the word “nauseous” to spike. Merriam-Webster reports that the word spiked 4,793 percent after Comey used the word during his testimony at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

Michelle Obama isn’t letting anything stop her from fulfilling her commitment to girls’ education. Just days after the Trump administration denied reports about ending the former first lady’s 2015 global education initiative “Let Girls Learn,” despite the fact that future funding is in question, Michelle is emphasizing her and former President Barack Obama’s dedication to the issue with their planned Obama Presidential Center. “Excited by the potential of the Obama Pres.

BATON ROUGE, La. ― By the time the sun had set in Baton Rogue on Tuesday, the Department of Justice still hadn’t delivered its official ruling against the officers involved in the fatal shooting of Alton Sterling last July. However, news announcing that both of the officers had been acquitted began to rapidly spread after multiple media outlets ― including The Washington Post, The Associated Press and The New York Times ― were told the outcome from independent sources. The official decision is expected to be announced at a press conference in Florida on Wednesday.  Baton Rouge residents, many of whom had swarmed the streets for days last summer in protest of Sterling’s death, had been bracing for the DOJ’s[…]
