As a teen, the only thing I knew about spa facials was what I'd seen in "Legally Blonde." In the film, Elle and Emmett found the snobby Mrs. Windham Vandermark at a spa in a fancy, remote location, where she and other rich middle-aged women paid hundreds of dollars to lay wrapped like mummies, cucumbers over their eyes.

You know the saying "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder?"
While fundamentally profound and positive in meaning, when you pick it apart, it can suddenly dampen the mood.
Beauty may, indeed, be in the eye of the beholder, but the majority of today's beholders are influenced by societal standards, taught to think beauty takes only one form.

You know online reviews from customers are important to your local business — but did you know just how important they are? According to BrightLocal's latest Local Consumer Review Survey, even if your website comes up top in search results, reviews can actually be the deciding factor in whether customers click on you — or your competitor.

In business, some entrepreneurs view success in its most basal format. All they want is the ability to earn a living while working for themselves. For others, success takes on far more grandiose terms. It involves the erection of colossal empires that spans the globe with droves of customers and multibillion dollar revenue streams. Yet, whatever level or scale of success an entrepreneur is looking for in business, most desire a life that's replete with abundance in one fashion or another.

Skin lesions are frequent manifestations of underlying systemic conditions, including systemic autoimmune vasculitis. In particular, anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) are associated with distinct forms of vasculitis characterized by inflammatory cell infiltration of the walls of small and medium-sized vessels leading to vascular destruction and tissue necrosis.
Challenging students to dig in and achieve their potential during instructional hours confronts a mighty obstacle: the principle of least effort, the idea that people apply nominal effort to achieve a basically acceptable result instead of pushing themselves in pursuit of greatness.
We might be tempted to conflate low effort with laziness, but that misses an important physiological point.
For teachers, the carefully controlled conditions of education research can seem ridiculous when the reality of the classroom involves regular interruptions, absences and general chaos. Professor John Dunlosky is trying to bridge these two worlds, intentionally studying the effectiveness of strategies that lab studies indicate are promising, but that don't require special technology or extra resources. He is trying to figure out what few strategies could actually make a big difference for learners, and which ones are a waste of time.
