Longing and Finding Mooluk

There’s a word in Hindi called mooluk, which more or less translates to “home, sweet home.” It’s a word that means far more than just a place of belonging. When someone says, “I’ve found mooluk,” they say it with both joy and pride because they’ve not just found a place to rest, but a space where they can be their full cultural selves and feel understood and loved. I’ve longed for mooluk my whole life. But growing up, I lived without a community to call my own. I was the lone brown-skinned India...

POF P19, The All American Glock Style Pistol – Video Review

U.S.A. –-( Being American made means a lot more lately. We should all be buying American whenever we can, whatever we’re buying.

That’s right, Patriot Ordnance Factory is building a Glock 19 sized pistol. But they just didn’t spit out another Glock style pistol just so they could say they can. They looked at each ind...

Absent parades and ceremonies, LA County’s Memorial Day featured online memorials, socially distanced sun-seekers

This Memorial Day, there were no parades or carnivals, no big public memorials and ceremonies to honor fallen heroes. Social distancing was still the rule and large gatherings were still prohibited amid the novel coronavirus pandemic. But those limitations didn’t appear to stop anyone from heading out into the sun or paying their respects in whatever ways they could. While the number of Los Angeles County residents headed outside grew as the holiday weekend advanced, there were no reports of the...

This Huge Crashing Wave in a Seoul Aquarium Is Actually a Gigantic Optical Illusion

I live in Seoul, and whenever I'm back in the West, I hear the same question over and over: what's Gangnam like? Presumably Westerners wouldn't have had anything to ask me before the virality of "Gangnam Style," and specifically of the music video satirizing the image of that part of the Korean capital. In Korean, "Gangnam" literally means "south of the river," the waterway in question being the Han River, which runs through modern Seoul much as the Thames and the Seine run through Londo...

For Your Memorial Day: Six Ways to Find Peace in a Noisy World

Our family will visit the cemetery today. Someone from the American Legion will hand us poppies. The pastor will say a few words to those who’ve gathered. And then, we will bow our heads for a moment of silence. No one will speak. The air will fill with birdsong and the sound of flags flapping in the breeze. In that moment, I will pray as I always pray: for peace to rule in hearts everywhere. That’s how I’ve celebrated Memorial Day since I was a kid – with a few moments in a cemetery, observing ...

Promoting products is almost nothing like it was back in the Mad Men days. In fact, the digital landscape has changed the ad game so much that it barely even resembles early Grey’s Anatomy days anymore.  Marketing a product digitally isn’t about the right ad slogan or color scheme. It’s about crafting the narrative around that product through blog posts, social media, videos and other legitimate content that demands a potential customer’s attention and motivates action.

Naming a New Business: 4 Important Steps to Choosing the Right Business Name

By Darpan Munjal Recently, a survey was released that became a trending topic across major news outlets and social media channels. The unscientific poll claimed that 38% of Americans wouldn’t buy Corona beer because of the coronavirus. While the accuracy of this survey is questionable, outlets and audiences took the story and ran, claiming that the shared name of our now global pandemic hurt beverage sales. While it was nearly impossible for the brand to have predicted such a coincidence, Corona...

The Tesla Model X and the Porsche Cayenne are both incredible — but only one of these luxury SUV rivals has the edge (TSLA)

I've driven both the Tesla Model X and the Porsche Cayenne on numerous occasions.  The Porsche Cayennes have ranged in price from $86,000 to $136,000, in several trim levels and with both V6 and V8 engine options.  The Tesla Model Xs were what's now called the Performance trim, currently priced at $105,000.
