Wedding beauty is the stuff of obsession — enough to build a whole industry upon the procedures and products women will get to look flawless for their big day. But beauty treatments aren't just for the bride anymore; in 2017, men want in on the bridal beauty routine, too. Here comes the makeup-wearing groom.
Emerging architecture practice Studio Saxe has completed a boutique hotel and yoga studio set into the tropical forest of Nosara, Costa Rica.
Nomel and Mariya Libid, the owners of the Hotel Nalu-Nosara, wanted to create a resort for the visitors who travel to Nosara because of its reputation for health and wellness tourism and surfing. Studio Saxe were commissioned to design the hotel, which includes a yoga studio and multipurpose gym space that is enveloped by lush vegetation on all sides; becoming "a jungle retreat for exercise and relaxation, with no walls, only trees."
Coffee consumption has been shown to offer anti-aging benefits and contribute to improved insulin resistance, according to new research from Japan.
At age 80, Marge Howard has no interest in getting high — but she says that doesn't stop her from enjoying the benefits of cannabis.
Coping with the stresses of arthritis and the nursing care her husband requires, Howard said she finds relief through weekly massages using CBD oil. The substance is derived from hemp, the same cannabis sativa plant as marijuana, but manufacturers say it has little or no THC, the component that gets users stoned.
"It's beyond relaxation," said Howard, who briefly fell asleep at the end of her CBD-infused massage at Renu Day Spa in Deerfield, Illinois, which specializes in CBD treatments.

There are things we know, things we know we don't know and — to paraphrase former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld — things we don't know that we don't know. Being strategic often falls into that last category. The word "strategic" is so commonly used that few of us think twice about it. But how well do we know what it means to be strategic? Could we teach our teams? Give specific examples? Track measurable results?
There are so many things to consider when you are a new business owner, and one of the more confusing elements include employment laws. Following the law and federal regulations are very important, as the laws that cover businesses can be extensive. Whether you are a large corporation or a small business, it is important to be aware of what these laws are.

Do you get immensely happy with a certain product or service and immediately want to tell your friend about it? Well, the brand that you recommend is at gains here, as it gets a loyal customer as well as a new potential customer. This is called word-of-mouth marketing and it is considered to be the most trusted form of advertising.

All of those $0.14 clicks your business spends on Facebook ads sure add up. In the first quarter of 2017, Facebook earned $6.7 billion in ad revenue on mobile devices alone.

Scleroderma refers to an autoimmune connective tissue fibrosing disease, including three different subsets: localized scleroderma, limited cutaneous systemic sclerosis, and diffuse cutaneous systemic sclerosis with divergent patterns of organ involvement, autoantibody profiles, management, and prognostic implications. Although systemic sclerosis is considered the disease prototype that causes cutaneous sclerosis, there are many other conditions that can mimic and be confused with SSc.
Until recently, the prevailing thought in education was that differentiation according the theory of multiple intelligences was a good thing.
Then data started coming out, and the theories Howard Gardner set forth back in 1983 came under fire. Mention multiple intelligence thinking today, and you're guaranteed to rise the ire of someone on Twitter telling you that it's 2017, and the 1980s are gone and there is no data that exists that proves MI does anything but waste time. Gardner's theory was more about rethinking intelligence than suggesting we teach algebra by jump roping. He suggested eight sects of intelligence replace our singular idea of general intelligence.
Students who experienced personalized learning in school gained about three percentile points in mathematics relative to a comparison group of similar students, according to a RAND report on personalized learning. In the subject of reading, the study found a similar trend, although it was not statistically significant. The report determined that both low-performing and high-performing students appeared to benefit from personalized learning. The report builds on RAND's 2015 report on personalized learning, looking deeper into the implementation of the practice and exploring how it may play out as the innovation becomes more widespread.
