Have you ever looked at another person’s daily accomplishments and thought, “How do they do it”? By the time most are pouring a second cup of coffee in the morning, some super-achievers have gone for a 5-mile run, hit inbox zero, and nailed the rough draft of that report due next week. Oh, and they figured out the day’s Wordle, too. advertisement advertisement After more than a decade of writing and practicing productivity techniques, I’ve learned that these folks generally do know more about how to get more done. And you can adopt those practices, too. But, why would you? Getting more done in less time can mean that you have more free time to do the things you love with the people you love. Or, it can create space to fill with more work that could have a detrimental effect on your mental and physical health. I learned this the hard way last year. advertisement advertisement Don’t make the same mistakes. Instead, practice … [Read more...] about The ultimate guide to purposeful productivity (your mental health will thank you)

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin There is no one path to success in the music industry. So the stories can often be unpredictable. Like a band leaving their major label deal behind and then becoming the next big thing in music. Certainly doesn't sound like a blueprint to music stardom. And yet that is exactly the unique road L.A.-based trio MUNA find themselves on. After the trio of Katie Gavin, Josette Maskin and Naomi McPherson released their second album, Saves the World , in 2019, the band parted ways with RCA. While that could have been disastrous for some, it has turned out to be the best thing that could have ever happened to MUNA. The band took the time during the COVID lockdown to reassess who they wanted to be as a group, signed with Phoebe Bridgers' Saddest Factory Records label and just released their brilliant third album, MUNA , this past Friday (June 24). Suddenly the trio have become press darlings and are the next great band in … [Read more...] about Sunday Conversation: Why MUNA Is Music’s Next Great Band
Dimples Romana Actress Dimples Romana, who gave birth to her third child on Friday, said she has no plan of taking a break from show business once the baby arrives. “Even though I want to encourage working moms like me to take a long break after giving birth, I would be lying to you if I told you I’d do just that. My body and mind just don’t seem to want to entertain the idea of resting,” Dimples told reporters during a virtual launch organized by the private drugstore chain Generika, which got the actress as the new face of its “Ginhawa Generika” campaign. Inquirer Entertainment went to press with this article shortly before Dimples gave birth. “We have a lot of financial responsibilities, especially now that Ate Callie (her eldest child) is in Australia and is studying aviation. She will become a pilot in two years,” Dimples announced. “Also, my responsibilities as a mom is divided into three. I have a teenager (Callie), a grade-schooler (Alonzo), and a newborn (Elio).

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Colonel Scott “Manual” Mills has been tasked with managing the reactivation of the Air Force’s 65th Aggressor Squadron (AGRS), the first “red air” squadron completely equipped with F-35s. It’s a difficult job at any time but even more difficult now that the USAF has ended private “red air” aggressor support at Nellis Air Force Base. Nellis is home to the Air Force Weapons School , the USAF’s counterpart to the Navy’s Naval Aviation Warfighting Development Center, popularly known as TOPGUN. The base also hosts the world-renowned joint-service, international Red Flag and other air combat exercises. It’s the home of the Air Force’s F-16-flying 64th AGRS and other air combat training units, what the folks at Nellis call “Aggressor Nation.” Until the end of last month, Aggressor Nation was larger. The USAF squadrons which support the Weapons School and exercises as red air were augmented by aircraft and pilots from private … [Read more...] about The ‘Red Tax’: The Air Force’s Workaround for Fewer Aggressor Aircraft and Pilots at Nellis AFB
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Meow Wolf opened its first permanent installation in 2016 in Santa Fe. Known as the “House of Eternal Return,” it instantly became a nation-wide sensation due to its interactive and unexpected exhibits. What makes Meow Wolf so different than a typical art installation is that it’s not something you look at; it’s something you immerse yourself in. The exhibit creates a world that visitors walk through and engage with, allowing (and encouraging) interaction in a choose-your-own-adventure type experience, complete with secret passages and other hidden gems. One of the most famous examples in Santa Fe is a washer/dryer that, when opened, reveals a slide that visitors can use to access a room of lost socks below. In this way, the experience of visiting Meow Wolf is different than anything before it. The success has prompted more installations to be built around the country, including what’s called “Convergence Station” … [Read more...] about Where To Stay and What To Do When Visiting Meow Wolf In Denver

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The U.S. Department of Defense is a huge consumer of technology, and as a result America is home to many of the world’s biggest makers of military hardware. If you were to infer from this that Americans have a love affair with defense companies, you’d be wrong. It is a longstanding tradition in the domestic political culture to view military contractors with suspicion. That tradition is not confined to one party. During the 1920s, Republicans led the charge in labeling military suppliers like Dupont as “merchants of death.” Fifty years later, during the Vietnam War, it was Democrats who took the lead in condemning the “military-industrial complex.” The latest wrinkle in this longstanding bipartisan bias is the charge that traditional defense companies are not innovative, and that if the Pentagon wants cutting-edge technology it needs to turn to commercial companies in Austin, Boston and Silicon Valley.
