My husband and I vacation separately — without each other or our daughter. Here's why.

Posted: 12 Feb 2020 10:12 AM PST

solo vacationsNadine Jolie Courtney and Erik Courtney

  • Nadine Jolie Courtney says she and her husband Erik vacation individually — without one another or their daughter — every year, and it's strengthened their relationship.
  • Nadine first took a 9-day trip alone just after their daughter was born, and Erik went on his own solo vacation a few months later. It's since become a yearly tradition for the pair.
  • Nadine and Erik both work from home and spend a lot of time together, so vacationing alone allows each of them to indulge in individual interests and activities that the other doesn't enjoy.
  • Plus, absence makes the heart grow fonder.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

After my husband Erik and I had our daughter, I took a transformational nine-day-trip alone that helped me gain clarity, perspective, and (most importantly, as a new mom) rest. I exchanged a life of diaper-changing and early-morning wake-ups for seven days at a spa in Austria, followed by a weekend in London visiting one of my best friends who I rarely get to see.

It was life-changing for me, gave my husband time alone to further bond with our daughter, and strengthened our marriage. A few months after my trip, my husband embarked on his own solo vacation: to Florida (his home state) to visit his best friend from childhood. After a few days in Miami, he rented a car and drove to Tampa, where his grandparents had lived, and spent a few days in a library doing extensive genealogy research. There, unencumbered by an infant and a wife asking how much longer, he unearthed newspaper articles about his family, including a precious tidbit about the father he never got to know, who had died when he was young. If my daughter and I had been along on that trip, there's no way Erik would have gotten so much accomplished.

  • England's famous Reading and Leeds Festival announced its 2020 lineup on Tuesday, with Liam Gallagher, Rage Against the Machine, and Stormzy as headliners.

  • "omg i love dudes plus dudes with more dudes and side of dudes," singer-songwriter Maggie Rogers joked on Twitter.
  • After initially praising the lineup, The 1975's frontman Matty Healy agreed with a critic who said the male performers should have "used their leverage to demand equality on the bill."
  • Healy also declared that, from now on, his band would only play festivals that reserve 50% of bookings for women and non-binary performers.

This all-natural exfoliating peel left my skin feeling softer after just one use — I could actually see my dead skin sloughing off

Posted: 12 Feb 2020 10:09 AM PST

  • Most skincare products take time to work. That's why I'm always impressed with the ones that yield immediate results.
  • The Stem Cellular Exfoliating Peel Spray ($52) from Juice Beauty is a gentle exfoliant that uses all-natural ingredients to slough off dead skin and reveal fresher, brighter looking skin in seconds.
  • The first time I tried it, I was in awe — and I'm not exaggerating here. I've been using it for a few weeks now and still am loving how soft and fresh it leaves my skin feeling. 

 

When it comes to skin care, instant gratification is pretty uncommon. It could take weeks for that serum to reveal its promised dewy glow and even the most expensive under-eye cream out there won't make your crow's feet disappear overnight. Most skincare products take time to work their magic.

  • The "stroke belt" describes eight states in the southeastern United States — Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee — with high rates of stroke. 
  • A new study found that growing up in that area can increase your risk for cognitive decline, which is associated with stroke risk, even if you move away after childhood or early adulthood. 
  • The research also found that people who move to the stroke belt in middle age or after are less susceptible to the region's association with stroke and cognitive decline.

Where you grow up can shape relatively inconsequential things like which sports teams you cheer for, whether you refer to the bready Thanksgiving side dish as dressing or stuffing, or whether you say "you guys" or "y'all." 

Now, preliminary research suggests your hometown can influence weightier matters too — particularly, your risk of cognitive decline in later adulthood — even if you moved away for college and never went back.

The Equifax hack proved China is trying to steal your stuff — and America's political dysfunction is letting them take it

Posted: 12 Feb 2020 10:01 AM PST

A man walks past a Chinese soldier in an usher uniform stands guard at an entrance door of the Great Hall of the People during a plenary session of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) in Beijing, Sunday, March 10, 2019.AP

  • While the US Justice Department has concluded that the Chinese military hacked into the credit-reporting service Equifax, it was the broken US political system that made such a hack possible.
  • A combination of lobbying and ideological inflexibility has made it impossible for Congress to pass good federal privacy and cybersecurity legislation.
  • Americans are electing politicians who let other countries steal our stuff. And some people seem fine with that.
  • This is an opinion column. The thoughts expressed are those of the author.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Sure, according to the Department of Justice, Chinese military hackers broke into the credit-reporting service Equifax in 2017, stealing the personal data of millions of Americans in one of the worst security breaches ever. According to the DOJ's complaint, they did this by exploiting a weakness in the dispute-resolution website within Equifax's system.

That alone, of course, is troubling. But what's even worse is that it was American corruption that made the whole thing easy.

Tennis superstar Serena Williams and Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian have had a whirlwind few years. Here's how the power couple met, and everything that's happened since.

Serena Williams Alexis OhanianTheo Wargo/Getty Images

  • Tennis superstar Serena Williams and tech founder/investor Alexis Ohanian have had a whirlwind few years. 
  • They got engaged, had a daughter together, and got married in front of a star-studded group of guests.
  • Plus, they've had numerous professional accomplishments between the two of them: Williams recently won her first singles title since 2017, and Ohanian has become an advocate for paid paternity leave.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

The past few years have been life-changing for Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian.

Since December 2016, the tennis superstar and Reddit cofounder, respectively, have gotten engaged, had a daughter, and gotten married.

But things weren't always perfect. In fact, when they first met, Williams tried to get Ohanian to go away.

In the July 2017 cover story of Vanity Fair, writer Buzz Bissinger got the inside look at their love story. That, along with some Instagram sleuthing, helped us compile the story of Ohanian and Williams' whirlwind romance. 

Here's how the two moguls met and fell in love.

The pair met in May 2015 at the Rome Cavalieri hotel, when Ohanian sat down at the table next to Williams' outside by the pool, according to Vanity Fair. Williams and her friends tried to get him to leave by telling him there was a rat at his table. When it didn't work, they invited him to join them.

Williams had never heard of Reddit before, and Ohanian had never watched Williams play tennis, but he agreed to come to the match later that day. He knew so little about the sport that the first photo he shared publicly of Williams shows her committing a foot fault.

Stevie Wonder

Award won: Best music, original song

For: "The Woman in Red," for the song "I Just Called to Say I Love You"

Year: 1985 — 57th Academy Awards

Everyone knows that Stevie Wonder has won a billion Grammys (well, 25 to be exact), but his Oscar win goes under the radar despite the song he won for being a mega hit. Prince won in the same year, too, for his work on "Purple Rain," making 1985 the first Oscars where multiple black nominees won their Oscars.



Lionel Richie

Award won: Best music, original song

For: "White Nights," for the song "Like You, Like Me"

Year: 1986 — 58th Academy Awards

Richie, much like Stevie Wonder, has won a bunch of Grammys (four, significantly less than Wonder), and is famous for his iconic tunes. The Academy recognized one of them in 1986, although this win curiously seems to go under the radar still.



Cher

Award won: Best actress

For: "Moonstruck"

Year: 1988 — 60th Academy Awards

Cher is best known for being Cher. The multi-hyphenate is an icon and while her music from the 1980s is still very much remembered today, her film work is less so.

Cher was nominated for best supporting actress for "Silkwood" in 1984. Four years later, she won best actress.
