In December, we learned that xoJane’s legendary founder, Jane Pratt, was leaving the company and that the famously controversial personal essay hub would fold into InStyle, signaling the end times for the overly confessional hate-read. (Hearst’s The Mix, more or less cut from the same cloth as xoJane, quietly died…
The Wizards and Celtics play tonight, and it’ll be their third meeting this season. The first two encounters featured John Wall scuffling with Marcus Smart, Jae Crowder touching Wall’s nose with a single finger, and Bradley Beal smirking at Smart. The Wizards decided to set the tone for this round by showing up to the…
Venus Williams, aged 36, ranked No. 17, hasn’t dropped a single set en route to the semifinals at the Australian Open. Her 6-4, 7-6 (3) win over No. 27 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova made her the oldest woman in the Open era to run this deep into this tournament.
Organized labor has the potential to be one of the great forces for equality and sanity in our nation over the next four years. Orrrrrr, they can do what the building trade unions are doing now.
Welcome back to Giz Asks, a series where we ask experts hard questions about science, technology, and humanity’s future. Today, we’re wondering about the “speed of dark,” and for that matter, the scientific nature of “speed” and “darkness.”
The Mannequin Challenge may have been dead stateside for a couple months already, but we’ll afford some slack to the guys in the Korean Basketball League’s All-Star Game who coordinated and executed a big one in the middle of the game:
Drury University freshman guard Lexie Vaught lost her shoe during Saturday’s game against Rockhurst University, and chose to play through it. She should not have done that.
NYC hasn’t seen the sun in about a week, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t aching to be outside. Camping season is so very close to being here, so if you need to restock your supplies (or maybe buy some new ones), Amazon’s Coleman Gold Box can help. Grab a new tent, sleeping bag, or camp stove on the cheap, today only.
Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka was in London’s Heathrow Airport yesterday to see off his girlfriend’s brother on a flight to Germany. Things didn’t go as planned, though, and when the brother learned that he would miss his flight, Xhaka allegedly blew up on an employee of the airport, calling the woman “a fucking…
There are no alternative facts. Even dead-ender Steelers fans, the ones who kept insisting he’s just some pretty boy cheating cheater, can no longer hide from this reality: The Steelers belong to Tom Brady.
The Cavs have dropped five of their last seven, and their king is heated. You might be too, if you were the linchpin of a defending champion, suddenly forced to log 44 minutes in mid-January just to lose to the Pelicans sans Anthony Davis. That’s a bleak scenario for the game’s best player.
Now that Peyton Manning, the ad pitchman and NFL quarterback, has retired from one of his two day jobs, it’s natural to wonder what comes next. He’s still making a string of commercials, but he hasn’t made much visible progress toward finding new football-based employment. Jay Glazer reported earlier this month that…

Cobb County taxpayers have been on the hook for close to $400 million since the county commissioners approved the Braves’ expensive new stadium construction project without hearing from dissenters and without letting the constituents vote on the deal almost three years ago. Residents made their displeasure known by…
“A system in which the best option is inadequate to the nation’s needs is by definition in crisis,” said Guardian journalist Gary Younge last week in a thoughtful video reflecting on the end of the Obama presidency.
That was more like it. Sure, Manchester City’s 2-2 draw against Tottenham on Saturday was on one hand frustratingly disappointing, seeing as the Citizens completely dominated Spurs and, barring some poor finishing, even worse refereeing, and a couple ill-timed defensive lapses, could’ve and should’ve been an easy City…
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr’s joke at the expense of White House press secretary Sean Spicer and the Trump administration’s embrace of “alternative facts” seems to have inspired others to get in on the roast. The sports people are crackin’ jokes and we are loving it.
