Soaking in sake: Japan's answer to the red wine bath
It was Thomas Jefferson who supposedly said that "good wine is a necessity of life." Somehow, I don't think bathing in his happy hour drink was quite what he had in mind. But it feels even more essential if it's not only part of our diets, but also our beauty routines, right? Basketballer Amar'e Stoudemire set the Internet abuzz in October when he posted a selfie on Instagram from a tub brimming with red wine. But we've since moved on to another kind of alcohol-infused experience: the sake soak.
Millennials vs. baby boomers: New stats show surprising similarities in beauty ideals
It's hard to believe that a 21-year-old girl and a 60-year-old woman could have very much in common, but when it comes to beauty ideals, they're more similar than we think. Based on RealSelf data and recent market research, we know that 87 percent of American women ages 18-64 are unhappy with at least one part of their body, with up to one-third of them willing to go as far as plastic surgery to increase confidence in their appearance. But that's not where the similarities end.

4 business decision-making mistakes are holding you back
Throughout history, how many of the most innovative companies have won by playing it safe, never taking risks and never adapting? The answer is none.

Leadership: Taking a stand
By Thomas Parker
Over the years, I have experienced working with wonderful and fantastic leaders. I have also worked for some horrible, self-centered supervisors and managers. Notice, I did not refer to the latter group as leaders. These few certainly are not, nor will ever be, leaders. In fact, these self-centered individuals are toxic. Why do I make such bold statement? Each of us will leave a legacy to some degree. The decisions we make today will have an impact on us in each day that follows.
Infographic: Why you should be marketing with social media
By Kaylee Nelson
For as long as there have been businesses, there has been the promotion of those businesses. Business owners have always faced the challenge of how to get new customers through the door. Thus, the concept of marketing is not a new one — but the methods in how to do so are constantly evolving. First, it was catalogs and print ads, then radio and television, then static websites — and finally social media. Marketing through social media today is more valuable than ever in more ways than one. Check out this infographic to see how.

Practical tips for cultivating a learning relationship with students
Take a moment right now to ask yourself who your best teachers were growing up. Now list the qualities that made them your best teachers.
Looking at your list, you will probably notice something interesting. When I have faculty do this, they invariably list qualities, such as "cared for my learning" or "cared for me as a person." They do not list qualities, such as "the most knowledgeable person in their field." In other words, they list relationship qualities as the factors that make for a great teacher, not knowledge qualities.
