Lots of moms have two prized possessions: Their kids and their kitchen.

Mother's Day is less than a month away — and since you've already given her the gift of the best child ever, cooking stuff is the way to go. But if she's that much of a food fanatic, she probably already has the basics like a slow cooker, a toaster oven, and probably even a fancy juicer.

Cookware is one thing she probably hasn't updated in a while. If she's still using the aluminum set that she got as a wedding gift, look no further than Le Creuset's spring sale: Save up to 25% on cast iron, stainless steel, and nonstick cookware sets, plus savings on a load of knives and spatulas.

Best hookup apps and sites to help you get it on

Posted: 13 Feb 2018 01:48 PM PST

TwitterFacebook

Hookup culture: Also known as the thing that has basically replaced real dating over the past 20 years or so, and the thing that your parents and grandparents bitch about because "nobody has a real conversation anymore."

We all know that's not true, however, and online dating has made a massive impact on more people meeting and talking than every before. And when we think dating sites, we usually think about sites like eharmony and Zoosk and other marriage-minded options. But not every single person is trying to participate in the next cuffing season.

Sometimes, you just wanna get laid.

Everyone gets stuck in a sexual rut at some point, and let's face it: Trying to take strangers home from the bar or constantly hitting up your ex who you know is DTF can get old. But what are you supposed to do? Just ignore the fact that you're human? Read more...

With no E3 showcase in June, Sony reveals the first 'PlayStation 5' specs

Posted: 16 Apr 2019 07:59 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

There's not going to be a PlayStation 5 release in 2019. When it does show up, it might not even be called "PlayStation 5." 

But Sony's next-generation gaming console is definitely coming. With the company skipping its usual E3 showcase at the June 2019 show, PlayStation 4 lead architect Mark Cerny — who is also, unsurprisingly, deeply involved in the next-gen PlayStation — delivered some of the first details on the until-now secret project.

It's too early for a fully detailed specs rundown, but Cerny laid out the broad strokes in an interview with Wired. As you might expect, the next PlayStation — I'm just going to call it PS5 from here on out, and we'll all just agree that the final product may have a different name — will sport a number of common sense hardware upgrades.

Notre-Dame isn't just a landmark for the people of Paris. It's an important historical site for people all around the world.

This livestream features a 'poly' bald eagle throuple raising a family

Some eagles are just too radical to be confined by heteronormative bird monogamy. 

Consider this "polyamorous" family of bald eagle trailblazers, featuring two male eagles, Valor I and Valor II, and one female eagle, Starr, located in Southern Illinois near the upper portion of the Mississippi River.

While some people have been following the non-traditional family for years, the Stewards of the Upper Mississippi River Ridge, an educational non-profit dedicated to the region, just posted a new livestream of the eagle family for nesting season.

SpaceX booster accidentally falls into ocean after rough conditions

On Thursday, SpaceX landed three of its booster rockets in one very impressive feat.

While the two side boosters landed safely on the ground at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, the center core landed out in the Atlantic Ocean on the "Of Course I Still Love You" droneship.

That meant SpaceX had to go and retrieve the booster, but sadly, rough conditions on the seas resulted in the booster accidentally falling into the ocean, as reported by The Verge.

Scathing report on Facebook paints a picture of disarray and dissent

Posted: 16 Apr 2019 06:19 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

Facebook is in trouble. But it's not a singular problem or even a set of problems the social networking giant has recently faced — it's been an overwhelming mountain of issues, some of them slowly burning for years, seemingly ready to join forces into one cataclysmic dumpster fire. 

This is the picture of Facebook painted by a new, 12,000 word report by Wired, published Tuesday. The report's authors, Wired's editor in chief Nicholas Thompson and editor at large Fred Vogelstein, spoke to "65 current and former employees" to create a scathing deep dive into everything that was wrong on Facebook in the past 15 months, and the company's apparent inability to properly fix most of it.  Read more...

The internet is looking for a dad and child pictured at Notre-Dame before fire

Posted: 16 Apr 2019 06:00 AM PDT

The fire which consumed the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris has prompted plenty of tributes and memories from around the world.

A now-viral photo posted by Twitter user Brooke Windsor captures what is presumably a father and his child playing in front of the iconic building just before the blaze on Monday.

Windsor claimed the photo was taken about an hour before the fire began, and now, she wants to find the pair — with the help of the internet, of course.

"I almost went up to the dad and asked if he wanted it. Now I wish I had," she wrote. "Twitter if you have any magic, help him find this."

I took this photo as we were leaving #NotreDame about an hour before it caught on fire. I almost went up to the dad and asked if he wanted it. Now I wish I had. Twitter if you have any magic, help him find this 🙏🏼 pic.twitter.com/pEu33ubqCK

Cadillac brings ‘hands-free’ Super Cruise feature to more cars

Posted: 16 Apr 2019 06:00 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

Autonomous driving is slowly but surely rolling out to even more customers. Tesla announced last week that its semi-autonomous driving feature, Autopilot — which can steer and change lanes on its own — will be a part of all its electric cars ordered online. And now General Motors is adding more self-driving features to its cars with its Super Cruise hands-free system.

Super Cruise works a lot like Autopilot, with sensors and cameras and GPS guiding the car, but only on certain highways across the U.S. and Canada, where the computer knows the route. Unlike with Autopilot, drivers don't have to keep their hands on the wheel. A small camera trained on the driver detects when drivers need to snap to attention —and then notifies and alerts drivers to get back into driving mode. Until then, you are literally just sitting behind the wheel, watching the road go by. Read more...

Don't police people's online expressions of grief about Notre-Dame

Posted: 16 Apr 2019 05:08 AM PDT

TwitterFacebook

Watching the footage of Notre-Dame cathedral engulfed with flames, it's hard to feel anything other than heartbreak and grief. 

Interspersed between the devastating imagery of the burning building were people's own photos of the cathedral, accompanied by messages and memories of what the building meant to them. 

This act of sharing one's personal connection to the monument proved divisive, however. Some tweeted that they felt people were making the tragedy about themselves, others interpreted the tweets as bragging about having travelled to Paris. 

To me, the backlash to these expressions of sadness felt both callous and cynical. In moments like these, where centuries of history goes up in smoke, do we really want to police people's (very real) grief?  Read more...

850 years of history went up in smoke on Monday when a fire ravaged the medieval Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris, France. 

The fire caused the building's spire and roof to collapse, but the main structure and two bell towers have been saved, per officials. 

The morning after the blaze broke out, newspapers around the world paid tribute to the iconic monument, one of France's most famous buildings. 

French daily newspaper Le Parisien led with the headline "Notre-Dame Des Larmes," which means "Our Lady of Tears."  Read more...
