    10 Ways to Get Unfriended on Facebook

    10 Ways to Get Unfriended on Facebook
    Ever since Jimmy Kimmel declared November 17th “National Unfriend Day,” we’ve been taking a closer look at our 400+ Facebook friends. The man has a point.

    YOU: No Photoshopping Necessary

    YOU: No Photoshopping Necessary
    One of my favorite non-profits in San Francisco, About-Face, is on a mission to make a difference in how women see themselves. It's no secret that pages of glossies, gossip mags, blogs and tabloids are overridden with airbrushed photos and images of women who were already too thin to begin with. And yet what are we doing about it? Nothing. Or, ...

    Key Lessons from "Undercover Boss"

    Key Lessons from "Undercover Boss"
    It's hard to argue that a primetime network T.V. show that debuts after the Super Bowl has any mission other than to entertain the masses. It's perhaps unfair then to ascribe any further responsibility to Undercover Boss. In reality T.V., however, there is an endgame separate and apart from mere entertainment. The Bachelor promises love, American Idol fortune and fame, and ...

    Be Inspired: Mom-in-Chief Michelle Obama
    Dubbed the “commander in sheath” by Vanity Fair and the “first lady of fashion” by ABC News, it’s little wonder why her wardrobe keeps us buzzing.
