JustLuxe
Contributor for JustLuxe Vicki Arkoff writes: Hot rock massage? That's so 10 years and 50 minutes ago. Twenty-four karat gold facial? I'd rather wear it around my ring finger. Reiki? Really? As a dedicated spa connoisseur, I've experienced a wealth of treatments including, classic, exotic, native, alternative, indulgent and downright ridiculous. And though I've enjoyed most for different reasons, I've found that nothing makes me happier than a skilled therapeutic masseuse working with intoxicating natural lotions and potions with scents to die for.

The 5 pitfalls of decision-making and how to avoid them
Entrepreneur

Contrary to popular belief, the hallmark of effective leadership doesn't solely rely on the decisions a leader makes but rather how he or she sets the conditions for followers to live and learn, read and react and decide for themselves as information becomes available. Without the right information, decision-making, and therefore, progress, doesn't happen.

TEACHING TIPS


Using rubrics to provide more accurate feedback
By Brian Stack
Teachers, make this your year to make better use of rubrics and a rubric scale for your assignments and your courses. A rubric is a chart that lists the criteria and a variety of levels that describe proficiency for a particular assignment or task. When used correctly, rubrics can greatly improve the accuracy and consistency of a student's grade because they establish clear expectations for students on what they need to do to demonstrate mastery on an assignment or throughout a course.
