The Duchess Of Cambridge Needs A New Secretary. Could It Be You?

This is the greatest news we’ve heard since Queen Elizabeth II was hiring a social media star

The former Kate Middleton will soon be on the hunt for a new secretary to replace her longtime personal aide, Rebecca Deacon. The highest member of the duchess’ team announced that she would be leaving the palace this summer after a decade as the royal’s right-hand woman. (Side note: Could you imagine saying the phrase “leaving the palace” when putting in your two weeks’ notice? Oh, to dream.)

In a statement to People, Kensington Palace said, “After a decade of service to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, Rebecca Deacon will be stepping down as Private Secretary to The Duchess of Cambridge. She plans to leave the household in the summer.”

It’s unclear if Kensington Palace will post the job opening on its website, as the royal household has done in the past, or if the search will remain private. Either way, keep your eyes peeled on the monarchy’s job site for your chance to work with royalty.

And perhaps binge-watch “The Crown” on Netflix for, you know, research.

6 Things Every 20-Something Bride Needs To Know

For BRIDES, by Sandy Malone.

There are things every bride and groom should know, and then there are wedding planning tips that are specific to couples in a certain age range. Yes, you’ll probably be inviting guests of all ages to your wedding, but if you’re in your mid-20s, for example, there are some unique challenges presented by the general age-group of most of your friends.

So before you start announcing your wedding plans, or signing any contracts, consider the below kernels of wisdom for 20-something couples — putting these things in perspective before you start planning will make the process a whole lot easier… for everybody involved.

1. Don’t Neglect the School Calendar A number of your friends may still be in college, graduate, or professional school, so finding a wedding date that everyone can attend will be pretty much impossible. But keeping the general school calendar in mind will help you ensure more of your besties can RSVP in the affirmative. While your friends might not have school-age children yet, you may have some VIP guests (cousins or other family members) with tricky school schedules to work around as well.

2. Hotels Should Vary in Price While it’s cool to have everybody stay together at the same hotel or resort for your wedding weekend, keep in mind that you need to offer your guests a variety of price points. For many of your 20-something contemporaries, nobody is paying their credit card bills for them anymore, and the actual cost of your wedding weekend could be more than they earn in a paycheck, if you’re not careful.

3. Some Guests Might Not Know the Etiquette Rules Traditional wedding etiquette is fading out, but while you might realize how tacky it is to fail to RSVP, or ask to bring a date to a wedding, not all your younger guests have been privy to the same code of conduct. Expect to have to make a number of follow-up phones calls for guests who haven’t told you for certain if they accept the invitation, and be prepared with a polite, but negative, response when your friends ask if they can bring a plus-one.

4. Paper is Still King When it Comes to Weddings You can do as much as you like with your wedding website, hashtag-generators, and special weddings apps, but at the end of the day, in my professional opinion, you should provide the most important wedding information on actual paper — especially if you want anybody over the age of 35 to actually see it. Your 20-something friends might be happy checking the wedding schedule throughout the weekend from their phones, but your older relatives will feel completely lost.

5. Not Everyone Needs a Plus One Most of your friends do not require the privilege of a plus-one invitation to bring a date. Unless they’re in a serious, long-term relationship, or living with someone, it’s perfectly acceptable to just invite your friend without a guest. While your single friends serious might LIKE to bring a date, you have no obligation to extend that invitation — and incur the additional expense.

6. Compromising to Stay Within Your Budget is Crucial Many 20-somethings just simply aren’t able to afford the wedding of their dreams (unless they happen to be independently wealthy) — they just haven’t been working and saving up for that long. It’s difficult for someone in their 20s to afford day-to-day living expenses while still managing to pay for a “dream wedding” without some help (usually from their parents). Some couples might opt to have extra-long engagements in order to save up for the big day and be able to pay for most of it themselves. Regardless, it’s important for couples to remember that they’ll have to be open to compromising on what they want as well as setting a realistic wedding budget.

Why Feminism Still Needs To Be Called Feminism

This post originally appeared on Bustle.

By JR Thorpe

Leaving aside the maniacs of the Men’s Rights Movement for a minute, even people committed to women’s rights have raised the sacrilegious idea in recent years that the f-word is old-fashioned and needs to be retired for something newer, snappier, and more inclusive. Quick, somebody hire a marketing department. Can we sum up an entire equality movement in an emoji? But all joking aside, should the word “feminism” be replaced?

I say no way — and understanding where the word “feminism” came from is a necessary ingredient to understanding why other words just can’t quite compete. Humanism, equalism, and other ideas have been suggested as replacements, by people as prominent as Meryl Streep, but if they really want a word that’s all about fighting for the rights of women in the world, “feminism” is the best we’ve got, and there are good historical reasons as to why.

So here’s why you shouldn’t throw away your “This Is What A Feminist Looks Like” T-shirt or alter it to another word. The history of “feminism” as a word is a slightly twisted one, and it has some unexpected moments — just like the waves of feminism itself. Words are strangely powerful things. Let’s take a look at how the term feminism came to be — and why it needs to stay.

Where The Word Feminism Came From

2015-11-16-1447687359-9094439-5d0528f066ac01339eb00af7184f89fb.jpg

In a case of quite peculiar irony, the word “feminism,” used by generations of women to explain their struggle for equal rights and opportunities, was coined by a dude. Charles Fourier was a French socialist philosopher of radical principles in the 19th century, and his term “feminisme” is the basis for today’s term in English. And Fourier’s own peculiarities have led to some people wondering if it’s the right word at all.

Fourier didn’t advocate for complete gender equality because, in his world, the sexes were too seriously biologically different to be treated the same. He was also a utopian thinker, and his conception of “ideal” human life was something like a Grand Budapest Hotel-like commune where workers changed their occupation up to eight times a day to avoid monotony. (Look, if we had to get rid of all the words in English that were coined by strange white dudes, we’d likely not have much to talk about.)

Luckily, his “feminisme” was quickly co-opted by activists, and started to show up in English. Hilariously, its first appearance was in The UK Daily News in the 1890s, “what our Paris Correspondent describes as a ‘Feminist’ group… in the French Chamber of Deputies,” as a warning that the ideology could be extremely dangerous. And it came to the U.S. a decade or so later in an article by the French suffragist Madeline Pelletier (who, by the way, dressed fabulously in men’s suits and bowler hats, and was the first female French psychiatrist).

Another interesting thing about the history of the word “feminism” is that, while huge swaths of women in history worked for feminist goals like women’s voting rights and access to education, self-identification as a “feminist” was relatively rare until midway through the 20th century. People like Elizabeth Cady Stanton didn’t use the word. The real boom for the word “feminist” in English came with feminism’s “second wave,” in the ’60s and ’70s. It’s far newer in the mouths of English-speakers than you might think: only 50 or so years old.

The Current Controversy Over The F-Word

2015-11-16-1447687423-6029585-dd77fdf066bd01336e180aecee5a8273.jpg

The word “feminism” has encountered a lot of chatter recently about whether it’s “outmoded” or needs to be “upgraded” — or, indeed, phased out. The arguments range from the utterly ridiculous (“sexism has been solved, we’ve got the vote, what’s everybody complaining about”) to the more serious.

Feminism is accused as a term of being old-fashioned, aggressive, insufficiently inclusive, not doing enough to solve sexism, and carrying too much baggage. People have suggested alternatives, like “humanism” or “equalism” — but I think we need to hang onto feminism as a word, problematic as it is. Here’s why.

Why “Humanism” Isn’t A Good Replacement

2015-11-16-1447687469-5462508-ccc8e52066c701330b840e76e5725d9d.jpg

“Humanism” has been tossed around as a possible replacement for “feminist,” on the grounds that it sounds the same but seems more inclusive of humanity as a whole. Sarah Jessica Parker has said, for instance, that “I’m not a feminist, I’m a humanist.” So has Meryl Streep. The problem? Being a humanist isn’t just a declaration that you’re in favor of all people everywhere having the same rights. It’s its own philosophical category, and using it willy-nilly without understanding its meaning is problematic.

Humanism is, essentially, the belief that the source of human values isn’t God, but humanity itself — particularly our capacity to be rational. It’s also a celebration of human life and the individual, and it’s existed as a philosophical tradition since the Enlightenment in Europe. According to the New World Encyclopedia,

Humanism refers to any perspective which is committed to the centrality and interests of human beings. It also refers to a belief that reason and autonomy are the basic aspects of human existence, and that the foundation for ethics and society is autonomy and moral equality.

It’s a great perspective — humanist wedding ceremonies are understandably popular — but it doesn’t mean that you’re focusing on the rights of every human. As Jarrah Hodge over at Gender Focus explains, humanism “includes a commitment to the rational and scientific and a rejection of the idea of divine and supernatural powers.” It’s not about rights or equal opportunities, or at least not centrally, and using it in that context seriously misuses the term. Humanists Against Feminism is a genuine thing that exists.

I do get that it’s more a fun turn of phrase than an actual position, but if there’s one thing you know if you’re a committed feminist, it’s that words matter. (It’s not that Sarah Jessica Parker isn’t a philosophical humanist, either. Maybe she is!)

Why “Equalist” Isn’t As Useful Either

The whole essence of feminism is that it focuses on the disadvantages and inequality of one particular group: women. Which is why saying “But I believe in the equality of everybody!” is kind of missing the point.

Just because you believe everybody should have the same rights doesn’t mean they do. This is the key bit: feminism is about tackling the world as it actually is, where one particular gender group is being discriminated against. While the end result, hopefully, is equality for all, what’s happening right now is an environment of wide-ranging discrimination against women, and that needs to be addressed for equality to be created. Saying you’re an “equalist” is like saying you believe in a world of well-built houses when half the materials used to make houses are burnt or rotten. The house can’t be built unless those materials are fixed.

To Be More Inclusive, We Need To Change Feminism Itself, Not The Word Feminism

2015-11-16-1447687639-7401908-65dc295066c801338ff00e17bac22e39.jpg

Using the word “feminism” shouldn’t prevent people from seeing other aspects of inequality within the movement. The whole concept of “intersectional feminism” was founded to try and broaden our understanding of discrimination against women, and make it clear that sexism is inextricably linked to race, class, and other factors.

The famous idea of “womanism,” as coined by author Alice Walker, is an attempt to answer one bit of this exclusionary issue — how can women of color feel comfortable and heard in a movement hugely dominated, throughout history, by white women? It’s an ongoing conversation, and it’s important for everybody to have a space where they feel their struggle is the focus. But replacing feminism with something that doesn’t acknowledge anybody’s struggle? In my opinion, that is taking it too far.

The Bottom Line

Part of the word feminism’s value is in its history. It’s a word that acknowledges the past struggles of people who’ve fought, sometimes against truly horrendous opposition, for the same values, even if they didn’t use the same term. From proto-feminists through to the suffragettes, the Gloria Steinems and the people protecting Planned Parenthoods, it’s a word that wears its history prominently — and a great deal of that history needs to be celebrated, even if it’s complicated (which it often is). Remembering doesn’t mean that you agree with all of it, just that you know it’s there.

It’s also, frankly, the best word we’ve got. It is, in its purest form, about improving the status of women as a group in the world — and there is no way in which that struggle is even close to over. The UN estimates that increasing women’s participation in the workforce and giving them equal pay worldwide would raise the world economy’s value by $ 17 trillion. Yep. That’s trillions.

It may be seen by some as an “aggressive” term, but when you’re faced with situations like constant everyday misogynist bullying, a rape rate increase of 29 percent in the U.K. in the past year, 15 million girls worldwide being forced into marriage as children every year, and countless other bits of evidence that women are still second-class citizens, it’s necessary to be aggressive.

Feminism needs to acknowledge and give status to people who aren’t just white, middle-class, cis, and able-bodied, but at least we’re beginning to have that conversation openly. And, frankly, there’s no other word in the world that does what it does and encapsulates what it means — at least not yet. Long live the f-word.

Swiss Airlines’ New Cabin Design Needs To Happen Everywhere, Right Now

Why can’t all airplane cabins get the Swiss treatment?

After the Internet panicked over a design that makes passengers face each other in a sardines-like, shoulder-to-shoulder seating situation, this spacious new concept should elicit a collective sigh.

The breathtaking cabin below was created for Swiss International Airlines’s new fleet of 777-300ER planes by Priestmangoode, a British design and brand consultancy firm.

“We wanted to pick up the cultural significances” of Switzerland, said Nigel Goode, a director at Priestmangoode and a leader on the project.

European travelers want a more open cabin that also gives them some privacy, he said, so he and his team focused on elements that give the passenger flexibility in succinct, Swiss fashion.

Seats in the economy class are upholstered in cream-colored fabrics and wood paneling continues throughout; passengers are assisted by a self-service kiosk and mobile charging stations.

Business class seats are more like little cubicles, with headphone hangers and straps for storing books, magazines and beverages.

But the first class design is what we think of when we picture flying in style.

In addition to a 32-inch flat screen TV, seats here recline into a six-and-a-half-foot bed. A retractable partition gives passengers three privacy options, and a personal wardrobe with doors that can be pulled together fully encloses the passenger as if they were riding in a train car.

“One of the things I get a big kick out of when other people see the design is that they’ll say it looks so Swiss,” Goode told The Huffington Post. “You can sit in the seat and everything lines up and it’s quite precise.” 

Swiss ordered an update to six of its Boeing 777-300ERs, and Goode said they’ll be in use starting in January 2016.

Swiss says its Boeing 777s hold about 330 passengers, and will be used for “ultra long routes,” or connections including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Sao Paulo and Bangkok.

While this makes us want to book a trip to Switzerland immediately, Goode said there’s hope for passengers on U.S.-based airlines. Priestmangoode is working with United Airlines to improve their cabins, and Goode said he sees American companies starting to take notice of the finer details. 

In the U.S., Goode said, “There tends to be more interest in the business, premium and economy areas, rather than first [class] itself. We’re working on a project that looks at this level of detail throughout the cabin, [such as] quality of finishes and attention to detail.”

We can hardly wait.

Amy Schumer Shows Why The Internet Needs To Get Over Its Disney Princess Obsession

The Internet is nauseatingly obsessed with Disney princesses, and even more obsessed with imagining them in some altered state. (As Velociraptors, seriously?) While websites love to fixate on things like how characters are animated so that their eyes are bigger than their wrists, or how they would look if they had more realistic waistlines, Amy Schumer’s latest sketch tackles the bigger question of why anyone would want to be a princess at all.

Sure, Disney movies and their characters are sanitized versions of classic fairy tales by the Grimm Brothers and Hans Christian Anderson, but when all the adventure is said and done, being a princess is actually all about being married off as an underage teenager, and hoping you can produce a male heir.

Besides, everyone knows happily ever after isn’t a real thing.

The Internet is nauseatingly obsessed with Disney princesses, and even more obsessed with imagining them in some altered state. (As Velociraptors, seriously?) While websites love to fixate on things like how characters are animated so that their eyes are bigger than their wrists, or how they would look if they had more realistic waistlines, Amy Schumer’s latest sketch tackles the bigger question of why anyone would want to be a princess at all.

Sure, Disney movies and their characters are sanitized versions of classic fairy tales by the Grimm Brothers and Hans Christian Anderson, but when all the adventure is said and done, being a princess is actually all about being married off as an underage teenager, and hoping you can produce a male heir.

Besides, everyone knows happily ever after isn’t a real thing.

Working with Families of Children with Special Needs

Working with Families of Children with Special Needs


The importance of partnerships between professionals and the parents of children with special needs/disability is well established in childcare legislation. But is it reflected in practice? Written for practitioners and those in training, this book recognises that forming partnerships can be a fraught process involving dissent as well as cooperation. Naomi Dale draws on case histories from her own experience to examine key partnership issues such as consent, confidentiality and diagnosis delivery. She combines up-to-date theory and research with practice to provide a wealth of suggestions and ideas for effective family work. Working with Families of Children with Special Needs features useful exercises with each chapter, making it an excellent resource book and practice manual for multidisciplinary professionals.

I Want to Outlive My Child (And 3 Other Horrible Truths About Being a Special Needs Parent)

We all know the brave, strong, inspiring images of parents of kids with significant special needs who wear their challenges like a suit of armor. I have been that parent sometimes. I have also been the parent who is crying so hard that I can’t speak because I don’t know what to do. There are also several dark truths that we all feel, but mostly don’t discuss.

1. I want to outlive my child.

We live in fear of what will happen to our son or daughter when we die. Where will they live? Will anyone care for them like we have? I know there are excellent group homes out there and I know that I can’t afford any of them. I know there are compassionate, wonderful people who work in state-funded homes, but I don’t know how to find them. These are thoughts that steal sleep or wake me in the middle of the night.

2. Most of us dread summer.

The majority of special needs kids need routine like the rest of us need air. School provides the structure these kids need and the break or daycare the parents need. It is an awful misrepresentation to call school daycare, but it’s a harsh reality most of us face because after middle school, it is exceedingly difficult to find a daycare that will accept our child. Some states have excellent summer school programs. In most, however, there is so little funding for special needs summer school that the slots go to those who are close friends with Harry Potter.

I am fortunate to be able to stay home full-time with my son, Caleb, but it makes summer drag out like endless loops of fishing wire. The first month of summer we usually search for routine with lots of swimming (which results in several ear infections), lots of visits to the library, maybe a movie or two and my feeble attempts to emulate the educational models Caleb’s teacher flawlessly presents every day. At some point in those four weeks, Caleb begs out of these activities. He wants to be at school with his teachers and his friends. Their routine trumps anything I could even attempt.

By the time school resumes, I am weakened and depressed from the toll of long summer days. Caleb’s health issues make summer even more challenging, because he can’t regulate his body temperature and will die if he gets too hot. Summer camps are usually not an option for him because of his specific temperature needs. Aside from swimming, we are restricted indoors and that takes a toll on both of us.

3. Worse than summer, we dread the day our child turns 21.

Federal law requires that students with disabilities can attend public school until the year in which they turn 21. It is amazing that education is extended for these students, but it ends there. After age 21, parents are left scrambling to find programs for their young adults. I have visited several day programs that mimic school for young adults. Some are really structured and provide wonderful outlets for young adults with special needs. These are usually the ones that cost the most, excluding many of the people who need these programs. Some of these programs provide services for a few hours a day, not a full day, which leaves parents who work with untenable choices.

Because our kids are mentally much younger than age 21, many of us are reluctant to start the search for a group home until we are physically unable to care for our child. At a time when our friends are either enjoying or dreading an empty nest, we are left with no choices.

4. We often have to take away our child’s rights to make their own decisions.

When our special needs child reaches age 18, many of us have to file for guardianship. This is a complicated process which involves attorneys (and their fees), court appearances and letters from doctors. The premise is that because the child is chronologically an adult, they have the right to refuse medical treatment, including things like an ambulance ride, necessary medications or surgeries. An ambulance could show up at the front door and if the young adult doesn’t want to get on it, the ambulance drivers have to respect their wishes, unless guardianship is in place and the parent can demand that the young adult be treated.

Guardianship may be necessary, but it is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do for Caleb. It boils down to petitioning the court to acknowledge that he is an incapacitated person. It is effectively taking away his right to make his own decisions, and that is a very sad process. I walked out of court the day guardianship was final with my head down and my heart heavy.
I believe these are universal unspoken truths for special needs parents. They weigh us down even when we’re not thinking of them. So, if you see one of us on a good day and we still seem a bit down, it’s because the future looms like a black cloud that fills the whole sky. We all want the best for our kids and many of us fear we may not be able to provide it.

These are ugly, frightening thoughts. I spent the majority of Caleb’s childhood trying to avoid them and the guilt they impose. As time does, it has brought these issues to the surface, which requires action. I have a blog called neverlandwithoutagps.com and it was born out of these ideas. My son will always be Peter Pan, a child in an adult’s body. I find us living in Neverland without much guidance. I am leaning heavily on my friends with older kids, listening to what they have learned and watching what they do. I hope by the time Caleb is 21 that I will be able to help the parents coming along behind us.

The New Magazine Every Socially Aware Person Needs to Read

As a recent graduate of Harvard, I am perhaps too familiar with particular, traditional metrics of success that have come to be embraced by our society — namely money and power. Even as I try to be on “my own path,” pursuing personal essay writing, meditation editorial leadership and poetry all at once, I still look for mentors who really seem to be pursuing “the Third Metric” — what Arianna Huffington describes as “a third measure of success” consisting of “four pillars”: well-being, wisdom, wonder and giving.
 
Well among those mentors, near and far, is a fellow Harvard graduate named Kayla E., the Texas-based editor-in-chief of what I’ll call the “up and coming” magazine Nat. Brut. I got to know Kayla at school, somewhat peripherally, as a cartoonist and multimedia artist. I figured she would scurry off to a prestigious MFA program, the same way I figured I would scurry off to a PhD program. Yet both of us seem to be taking the “road not taken,” in some fashion. I was pleased to reconnect with Kayla this year upon discovering her adventures with Nat. Brut. In short, I think anyone interested in reading, writing, making art, looking at art, most social issues from race to gender to the environment and more, humor and so on, should know a thing or two about Nat. Brut. To me, this magazine embodies the Third Metric in action.
 
According to Nat. Brut’s recent Kickstarter, which successfully raised the necessary funds to permit the mag to exist online and in print (!), Nat. Brut was initially founded in 2012 with a deceptively simple goal: “to publish literature and art online and free of charge, so long as it was good.”
 
Well, after Kayla and her partner Axel Severs assumed the helm of the Nat. Brut ship one year ago (January 2014), they’ve expanded their goals without losing site of their social mission. When push comes to shove, their foundational mission is to use the magazine as a fun and intellectually stimulating means to make the world (both literary and otherwise) a better place.
 
So how do they aim to do this? Well, Nat. Brut is the only magazine out there that is committed to being socially progressive, environmentally sustainable, and representative of a wide demographic range of artists, writers and other creators. And they want to make it accessible to everyone! 
 
Why am I highlighting Nat. Brut now, as an exemplar for the values of the Third Metric? Well, because so many of us who are, on some level, committed to “success” and achievement have this sense that art and literature should be a realm of our lives where a sense of intimidation is somehow equivalent to rigor. Well not only does Nat. Brut give us content that is whimsical while critical, inclusive while rigorous, accessible while sophisticated.
 
Get ready for Nat. Brut’s first print issue — Issue Five, coming out March 2015. The issue will feature a curation of found photos by Rebecca Weisberg, work by Susan Te Kahurangi King, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Koa Beck and Deborah Grant along with other artists and writers. Oh and I really meant it when I said Nat. Brut is environmentally sustainable: Issue Five will be printed on 100% recycled paper. And they don’t even work with distributors, meaning no issues will be disposed of.

For all of the feminists out there sick of reading literary magazines that embrace elitist, patriarchal values, you should be especially ready to get to know Nat.Brut. For the upcoming issue, 75% of the contributions are from female artists and writers. The mag is going to consist of comics (and the comic section will be in the form of a fold-out poster), four hefty artist features, two photo features, fiction, poetry, an interview, and a humor supplement called SALE! One of their other goals is to showcase interconnectivity of mediums, just as we all aim to embrace the interconnectivity of all aspects in our lives, successful or not.

The One Blazer Every Woman Needs In Her Closet

tux-blazer

Are you ready for this? I know it sounds crazy, but tuxedo blazers may very well change your life. We have always been fans of the classic schoolboy blazer, but a tuxedo version of the same kicks the trend up a notch and is, perhaps, our favorite transitional piece of the season.

Single or double-breasted, try to find a jacket that has a contrasting lapel. Opt for a totally classic option in all-black with a contrasting material like silk, or find a more graphic white blazer with black lapel and have a little more fun with the trend.

We have never been more serious when we say that this piece works for every part of your life. Throw it over a dress for work, style it with a t-shirt and jeans on the weekend, or pair it with a cocktail dress for all of those holiday parties you have on your calendar. Though perfect as an outerwear option on warmer fall days, a tux blazer is totally polished enough to be able to wear over a party dress for the duration of the evening.

Just in time for the holiday season, shop these 10 tux blazers below.

How do you style your tuxedo blazer? Let us know in the comments below.

Jon Stewart Shows Why China Really Needs That Climate Change Deal

Beijing may have been just about the best possible place to unveil a major deal on emissions because as Jon Stewart pointed out on Tuesday night’s “Daily Show,” the city really needs it.

The air quality is so bad that Beijing had to shut down factories and schools to help reduce smog ahead of the APEC summit. And these efforts worked, leading residents to dub the rare clear skies “APEC blue.”

“Well at least residents didn’t flee in fear of the enormous, ‘SKY FIREBALL!'” Stewart joked, referring to the rare glimpse of sunlight.

That wasn’t the only APEC oddity. From “Hunger Games” cosplay to world leaders acting more like “Mean Girls,” Stewart took a look at the summit’s strangest moments.

Ikea Advertises Adoptable Dogs In Stores, Because Every Home Needs A Rescue Pup

Furniture might help make a living space comfortable, but nothing makes a house a home like a furry best friend.

With that in mind, some Ikea stores are now featuring cardboard cutouts of adoptable dogs in their showrooms amid the furniture, AFP Relaxnews reported. The cutouts have tags on them with QR codes that shoppers can scan to learn more about the individual dogs.

The idea to display the pets inside the store started in Singapore as a collaboration between Ikea and two animal shelters, according to Business Insider. Together they formed the project Home for Hope.

Now, an Ikea store in Tempe, Arizona, is joining in on the innovative plan to find homes for rescue animals.

“We thought it was a perfect way to show people what their home would look like with a pet in it,” Becky Blaine, Ikea Tempe’s marketing director, told the outlet.

All of the six animals featured in cutouts at the store in Tempe have now been adopted from the Arizona Humane Society, and more cutouts will be exhibited in the store at the end of the month, according to the outlet. At least eight pups have been adopted in Singapore so far, according to the Home for Hope website.

Teen’s Instagram Tribute To His Sick Great Grandma Needs No Filter

When Louisville, Ky., teen, Zach Belden, created an Instagram account for his great grandma, he had no idea how big of a following it would attract, WDRB reported.

Grandma Betty is dying of cancer, so Zach thought this would be a great opportunity to share happy moments with his family and friends, and also have something to remember her by.

But, it hasn’t only reached their family and friends: the account, grandmabetty33, was made in January and already has more than 6,500 followers.

Grandma Betty gets a huge kick out of it, asking how many new followers they’ve gained every day, according to WDRB.

“I’ve been here 80 years, maybe they’ll learn something good from me,” she told the outlet.

On March 10, Zach posted an Instagram thanking all their followers:

From photos of her and her late husband, to videos of her dancing to Pharrell’s “Happy,” the sweet account is definitely worth checking out.

Kate Middleton Is Getting A Makeover (Not That She Needs One)

It looks like royals can’t even escape a little judgment from their in-laws.

As long time Kate Middleton advocates, we have adopted a “Kate-can-do-no-wrong” mentality, specifically when it comes to her stylish wardrobe. The Queen, on the other hand, seems to feel differently. The Mail reported Sunday that Kate Middleton is set to undergo a “subtle but significant regal makeover” for an upcoming trip to Australia this spring. The makeover will be a big change from those $ 72 dresses we love so much.

The wardrobe overhaul comes with direct support from Queen Elizabeth II, who has commissioned her own personal dresser, Angela Kelly, to work with Kate’s stylists on a brand new look. Designs by Alexander McQueen and Alice Temperley have already been in the works for gowns and dresses.

Additionally, Kate will be encouraged to wear the Queen’s favorite tiaras (no biggie), along with some of her other most beloved jewels to aide in her regal image.

Her majesty is not the only person close to Kate to critique her clothing. In fact, just last year, her friend encouraged her to start dressing a bit more “quirky.”

Sounds like there are some conflicting views on her royal closet. But one thing is certain, Kate will look flawless no matter what she wears.

Her most royal fashion moments:

10 Questions Your Partner Still Needs To Answer

You’ve covered the hot-button topics: child-rearing philosophies, the true meaning of Christmas, your feelings about cilantro. But at a certain point, every couple needs to have the really tricky conversations.

By Amy Shearn

1. Why did you take so long to ask me on a second date?

In the beginning of a relationship, you don’t want to seem needy or nosy. Certain topics are simply not your business (not yet, anyway). So when Ed waited a few months to call you after the two of you met at a friend’s party, you assumed he had been seeing someone else. But you didn’t ask about it. You just went to dinner with him. Over time, you got to know one another. You grew closer. Your businesses mingled, and soon you were ” RachelAndEd.” As in, your friends say, “Who else should we invite? What about RachelAndEd?” Which is when it is finally the time to fill in the blanks, and ask what happened in that months-long gap between the first enchanting conversation by the guacamole bowl and when he actually called to see if you wanted to get dinner. Ed’s answer — he wanted to make sure your mutual friend was okay with his asking you out — could surprise you. And make you love him even more. As if that were possible.

2. What beloved dinner do you no longer love?

I was bursting with pride the first time I made my husband dinner and he adored it. The dish was called… drum roll, please…chicken and broccoli on rice. The secret ingredient is — shhh! — soy sauce. Actually, after the chicken and broccoli and rice, soy sauce is the only other ingredient. This meal has taken us through the lean years of graduate school (more rice than chicken), through times when we both worked full time (more chicken than rice), through our childrens picky-eating stages (hold the sauce). And then came the day that so many marriages eventually face. He looked at the chicken and broccoli and rice and couldn’t bring himself to eat another bite. I can’t blame him. I felt the same way. So don’t waste a perfectly good plate of bland food by failing to inquire: What dinner did he once love that he would now prefer never to eat again? And then, you tell him yours. This is a safe place. Get it out. You might just be saving your marriage from drowning…in soy sauce.

3. What do you think of therapy?

When the big things come up — career strife, dying family members, the various typical but nevertheless excruciating heartbreaks of everyone’s life — you need to know if talking to someone is an option. Is he up for bringing in outside help for the two of you, or even just the one of you (if that one needs it)? Or will he say, “Psychotherapy? Like for crazy people? Doesn’t that cost an awful lot?” Some people find clarity in talking out the big issues with an objective outside party. Others see the whole enterprise as futile, or invasive. It’s a conversation to have before you’re at that completely-overwhelmed-something’s-gotta-give point, when you’re still talking about the idea of therapy and not about the personal issue you can hardly think your way through.

4. What’s the number you’re not sharing?

His student-debt balance, his weight before you met, his 545 dusty Star Wars collectors’ items, his 3.2 gray hairs, the 365 letters to the editor he sends every year, his actual desired number of children, his 17 identical shirts… There is likely some number you don’t know about. It might be intimidating. It might be relieving. Either way, it’s bound to be revealing.

5. How are we going to take care of your parents?

No one wants to, but at some point we all have to put on our big-girl pants and manage to make a will, consider our future funerals, alert spouses to our feelings on plug-pulling. Maybe you’ve even thought about what will happen as your parents age, whether you’ll install some bars in your bath tub or rack up frequent-flyer miles. But have you two discussed what will happen as his parents age? (Bet you never thought about that one, did you?) Much has been written about the difficulties of caring for an elderly parent, but less about when the elderly (and often persnickety, uncomfortable, dissatisfied) parent is not yours. Are you in assumed line to be the de facto care giver for your already-crabby mother-in-law? Are you headed toward an argument with your husband’s sister about the merits of nursing care? Put a plan in place now for a smoother road ahead.

6. What’s boring you about your life?

The authors of the book The Normal Bar, an extensive survey on romantic relationships, found that “boredom was the reason 71 percent of unfaithful men and 49 percent of the women gave for acting on sexual temptation.” So please, yes, find out if he’s bored in bed. But also know what’s boring him about life in general. Have your weekends become a tedious tangle of other people’s agendas — children’s birthday parties, neighborhood obligations, lawn care, children’s birthday parties, oh and children’s birthday parties? Is he so sick of his pants he groans whenever he takes another pair of khakis out of the drawer? To paraphrase Mary Oliver, this is your one wild and precious life, people, and there is no time for the guy you love (or you) to be bored by pants.

7. If you could have any car in the world, what would it be?

Hey, you’re grown-ups. This might actually be within reach.

8. Can you smell this peanut butter?

Sounds strange, but a loss of the ability to smell may signal a larger health issue. Surely I don’t have to remind you that the ability to smell is associated with the first cranial nerve (all right, I only learned that two seconds ago). This explains why that guy I knew in college lost his ability to smell in a car wreck — apparently head trauma often damages this first cranial nerve. This also explains why smell is one of the first senses affected by cognitive decline. In fact, graduate students at the University of Florida McKnight Brain Institute Center for Smell and Taste have found a link between a patient’s ability to smell and early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. (They used peanut butter because it is an easy-to-access “pure odorant.”) While we don’t recommend self-diagnosing based on this early study, sniffing some PB with your S.O. may pave the way for some important conversations about health — yours, his, individual family histories and potential future shared histories.

9. If you could change one thing about your job, what would it be?

We all have our moments of career malaise. But when it’s not your own career, not your own malaise, it’s difficult to know what to say, other than, “Oh… Yeah… Man. That stinks. Sorry.” A more manageable way to discuss this is to start with specifics: What does your partner wish were different at work right now? What doesn’t your partner like? This avoids that big question: Do you want to quit and find a totally new career path? But it still gets him thinking, helps him list the things he actually wants to do and offers you insights into your partner’s unspoken life.

10. What’s the one (doable) thing you wish I’d stop doing?

Considering all the ways in which you might be annoying the bejesus out of your partner can be a little terrifying. Certainly, we could all be better people, better partners. I would like to be a kinder, more patient and giving person who is about 5 inches taller. There are other smaller things I do actually have control over, however, that I could actually change. For example, the tea bags. I am perpetually leaving old tea bags on the counter. My husband finds the resulting slimy counter-slugs to be most repellent, and is constantly saying, in a pointed, exaggeratedly patient way, “Are you done with this tea bag?” Perhaps, as a kind of gift to him, I could give him a weeklong reprieve. Tea bags will be doomed to immediate interment in the trash the moment they have finished steeping. This wild, new habit would not ever become my new state of being, we both know me too well by now to expect that. (After all, dunk that shriveled, secondhand tea bag in boiled water and you’ve got a perfectly acceptable cup of tea, and I mean, what, does he think tea grows on trees?) But it’s something I could do for a week, if it would make him happy. What’s the one tiny week-shift that could relieve some pressure; show, if nothing else, that you’re willing to try, willing to listen. You know whom to ask. Go, ask him.

Spooning Dog And Cat Pair Is Exactly What The World Needs Right Now

Meet Archer and Babou, the spooning cat-dog pair that’s melting hearts all around the Internet.

It’s hard to believe that these adorable bedfellows weren’t always “in love.” On the contrary, the twosome had a bit of a rocky start.

“The cat showed up at our house in the cold last winter and the dog was terrified of him. They’ve gotten close throughout the year, but I didn’t realize how close. I caught them like this the other day,” their owner wrote in a YouTube post on Thursday.

Now, Archer and Babou can’t get enough of each other — and we, of course, can’t get enough of them!
