Living on the 24th floor of a high rise apartment in downtown Indianapolis, 23- year- old Sukhmani Singh, an Indiana University graduate and associate technical consultant at Salesforce, is enjoying her life as a single, working woman.
Change is on the rise with the millennial generation. Getting married early is on a downward trend to say the least; only 20 percent of millennials between the ages of 18 and 30 are married, compared to the 60 percent of Gen Xers at their age who were already married, according to Gallup Polls.
Research shows that there are many different reasons why millennials are getting married later than older generations such as Gen Xers and Baby Boomers. Here are the top three...
Being a parent is not easy, and you may have to deal with brain farts every now and then. These momentary lapses in judgment are actually referred to as maladaptive brain activity changes by researchers, and they will happen. They are especially common if you are doing something you do every day because the brain gets bored. The best thing you can do is know how to fix those mistakes when they occur, which is what the following five tips will help you do.
Kids can be stressful, and it might get to the point that you forget your wallet at home. You can call a friend or family member to bail you out, or you can talk to the manager. One of the best solutions is to leave the store manager something valuable like your watch or something similar. Then, you can go back home and get your wallet...
Kate Kennedy is a powerhouse freedom fighter with years of experience working to alleviate poverty, inspire justice, and combat modern slavery. I think so many people have an ‘ah-ha’ moment when they realize slavery still exists. Mine was when I was working as Strategic Director of World Vision Australia and someone put down a map of slavery. I remember saying, “Hang on – what do you mean by ‘slavery’?” I was so shocked and appalled that I didn’t know. That was in 2008.
I got hungry for more information. I looked into an agency that World Vision funded in Southeast Asia that provided recovery programs for survivors of severe human rights abuses – appalling stuff like the sexual exploitation of children by foreign and local pedophiles for as low as two dollars.
One of Ellen DeGeneres’ biggest breaks in Hollywood? When she made it to the couch — Johnny Carson’s couch, that is, in 1986.
After performing that famous “phone call to God” bit on “The Tonight Show,” the legendary late-night host called her over to sit down. She was the first woman to earn that invitation.
“That had a huge impact on my career,” she said. “It was something that meant a lot to me. It was something that I wanted to accomplish, and it happened.”
“Time makes you bolder,” Stevie Nicks sang, a shrewd line from the iconic “Landslide,” which she wrote at 26. Today the singer turns 69, which is especially hard to believe considering the timeless appeal of her music and her boho style. Among her many claims to fame, Nicks employed multiple wardrobe changes during live performances, switching into a new outfit after almost every song. The dizzying number of transformations not only served to inspire a fleet of Stevie acolytes to wear leather and lace to her sold-out shows, they also helped Nicks combat stage fright when she first began touring with Fleetwood Mac.
Pamela Des Barres and I have met before. It was 1987 and I was two. My mother, through her job with an apartment rental company, had become acquainted with Pamela's then soon-to-be-ex-husband, the actor and musician Michael Des Barres. She babysat the couple's son a few times and scored an autographed copy of Pamela's just-released memoir, I'm With The Band. A brief encounter to be sure, but Miss Pamela, as she's known to those who know her, laughs when I tell her the story and says, "everything comes full circle, doesn't it."
Many years ago the Bee Gees asked the plaintive question “how can you mend a broken heart?”. The same question has been asked over and over for eons, since modern romantic love came into being, some say in the middle ages, when romance began being celebrated in songs and stories. In the 12th century, people were encouraged to have a more emotional and personal relationship with the holy, when the church went from an uptight, austere image of God, to a new focus on the humane sweetness of Jesus. (I believe he was in love with his muse, Mary Magdalene, but that’s another groovy story for another blog)...

It's not exactly how I thought the day would go, but in the mid-afternoon in a warehouse building somewhere off the 101 freeway, Lorde is stripping down to her skivvies. In all fairness, so am I. We're at Shareen Downtown, a 6,600-square-foot Los Angeles paradise of secondhand sartorial wonders where there are no dressing rooms and, not coincidentally, there is also a strict rule that there are no boys allowed, as a sign on the front door attests. "Isn't that great?" asked Lorde earlier. "I found out about it through my old tour manager's wife, who did the costumes on Mad Men. She was like, 'I always go to Shareen.' And so I go to Shareen now as well."

Last week, Perfume Genius (aka Mike Hadreas) released his fourth record No Shape and today, the video for "Die 4 U"—directed by the remarkably talented Floria Sigismondi. The song alone is a slinky, dark and minimal tune that Hadreas's sultry voice teeters over. Subtle erotic asphyxiation, the lyrics don't give much away.
