It estimated there were nearly 30,000 synthetic opioid overdose deaths in the U.S. in 2017, up from roughly 20,000 the year before. When recreational drugs like Xanax and OxyContin are adulterated with the more powerful synthetic opioid Fentanyl, the misdosage can prove fatal. Xanax, OxyContin and other pain killers are often bought o...

Wealth of Choice? Really?

If you're in my business, you get used to certain things. For example, that whenever a post about gear gets a lot of comments, someone will bemoan the fact that posts about pictures never get that many comments. (The post before this one has gotten 121 comments so far.) ...Even though most gear posts don't get that many comments, and a few posts about pictures do get a lot of comments. I'm not calling anyone out, please understand—I'm not criticizing. It's just a thing that happens. I get fish-s...

A couple of further points to add to the "Wealth of Choices" arguments. First, check out this article at The Verge, the upshot of which is that Sony has surpassed Canon and Nikon in U.S. sales of full-frame cameras, reportedly in both dollars and units sold. A linked article notes that "Nikon will try to position its [Z-series] cameras head-to-head with Sony’s. (Even the names are kind of similar)," and "from the sound of it, Nikon is going to kick things off by going straight after Sony’s most ...

10 Asian Fashion Influencers Who Are Actually Crazy Rich

Crazy Rich Asians is a decadent joy to watch — and not just because of its all-Asian cast (a first in Hollywood in 25 years!). As Awkwafina’s character, Peik Lin, put it: “These people aren’t just rich, they’re CRAZY RICH!” They charter private planes, they own remote islands, they invite members of the Thai royal family to their weddings, and they have no problem spending $1.2 million on a pair of diamond earrings. But the happenings on-screen, which are adapted from Kevin Kwan’s book of the s...

What the Teens Are Up To: Most Used Social Channels

While parenting a 13-year-old, I realized two things: first, I’m old and second, social media wasn’t a thing when I was a teen. To stay relevant to my ever-growing bundle of joy, I’ve had to dive into apps I otherwise wouldn’t use as much. Before doing any research, I assumed that YouTube and Instagram would be ranked the highest among teen’s most used social channels. I was partially right! According to the 2Pew Research Center’s 2018 poll, 32% of teens in the U.S. use YouTube the most while 3...

Best bathrooms in America

Going to the bathroom in public is usually, at best, an uneventful occurrence. You get up, you do your business, and unless you’re a family-values-toting congressman in Florida, you return without much excitement. But some places around the country put a little extra effort into their restrooms by using art, design, and sensory experiences to make using the bathroom as much a part of your visit as anything else. The business products wizards at Cintas give an annual award for best restroom in...
