The Revenant: Beauty and Brutality in Equal Measure

“It’s okay, son. I know you want this to be over.” This is a brave voiceover with which to open a movie that consists of two-and-a-half hours of almost nonstop violence, injury, and privation. In context, it serves as a father’s comforting words to his son. But it could as easily represent a filmmaker’s warning to his audience. Fortunately, while Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s The Revenant is frequently...

Jessica Alba’s Honest Co. Places Bigger Bet on Beauty Products

Actress Jessica Alba is a self-proclaimed “beauty junkie.” That explains why The Honest Co.—a brand Alba co-founded with an initial focus on diapers, infant formulas and household cleaning products—last year expanded the startup’s portfolio by entering the beauty category with a line of cosmetics and facial care products. Alba’s Honest Co., a $1.7 billion valued unicorn, on Monday is taking the...

The Beauty of Melania Trump

Melania Trump’s remarks at the Republican National Convention are making news because they appear to have been lifted, in part, from a 2008 speech given by Michelle Obama. But Melania’s speech was distinct from the First Lady’s in a significant way. When she talked about her upbringing, she elevated the importance of beauty as a part of her personal narrative. It was one more way that she, and her husband,...

Newfoundland: The Rock is a multifaceted gem with innumerable sagas

Newfoundland and Labrador is littered with lines. There are fishing lines, clotheslines, ancestral lines, beelines, code lines, lines laden with knitted woollens and yarns of a humorous kind, but what you won’t find are long waiting lines. The longest line I experienced on my recent trip to the island of Newfoundland was while waiting to get off the Atlantic Marine Ferry in Port aux Basques, after a six-hour...

The Book of Bruce: “Born to Run” is the Springsteen Bible fans have been waiting for

Bruce Springsteen’s legendary concerts aren’t for the faint of heart, the cynical, or the disbelievers. If the man asks you to put your arms in the air, well, you better put your arms in the air. If he asks you to give him a train, well, you give that man a train. Similarly, Springsteen’s recently released autobiography, “Born To Run,” will ask a lot of the reader, and to get the most out of it, you...

Here’s the real reason your friend’s ‘gluten-free’ diet is probably making them feel better

(Pixels) As more and more of your friends go gluten-free, you may be wondering: Is there something to this latest diet craze? Is gluten intolerance a thing? Is it getting more common? The answer is, simply, no. Only about 1% of people worldwide actually have celiac disease, the rare genetic disorder that makes people intolerant to gluten, according to the Celiac Disease Foundation.
