Sarah Ban writes: "It was only three years ago when a friend had allayed his colossal hangover in 30 minutes flat thanks to a concierge IV treatment — and I brushed him off as a highbrow partygoer. Now, IV treatments are more accessible than ever, and they're not just for Vegas princes or inpatients. You can get IVs to boost your immunity when your coworkers have the communal sniffles, to destress after a chaotic week, or to simply reboot your whole system. Because they deliver nutrients directly to the bloodstream and bypass the stomach, IV treatments have been touted as godsends that shoot miracle energy into your body."
When it comes to skincare and makeup, many of us probably have a list of ingredients we would never put on our faces — some lists longer than others. But one ingredient with some heavily skewed opinions is polyaminopropyl biguanide, also known as polyhexamethylene biguanide or PHMB. But what is PHMB and is it bad for you? The ingredient is used in some pretty popular products in the U.S. but is actually banned from use in cosmetics in other countries. So what gives? To find out a little more about this controversial ingredient and whether you should avoid it, we emailed with a few experts.

An LED red light therapy bed may look like a tanning bed and glow like a tanning bed, but this light-up piece of machinery is definitely not a tanning bed. In fact, unlike tanning beds (which have been shown to cause cancer and premature aging), LED light therapy beds may be able to lower your blood pressure, make your hair shinier and ward off acne and fine lines. All very good things, in our book. And aesthetician Mzia Shiman is one of the only people in New York City to have one. "I wanted something that feeds the entire soul. That literally heals my clients from the inside out," she says.
If you're like me, you take more than one supplement a day — mine come in the form of pills, powders and chews — and you've probably Googled the side effects or asked your doctor about them to make sure what you're taking is safe. Surprisingly, in a new study published in the Journal of Medical Toxicology, we're seeing the scary side of supplements instead of the healthy side, which serves as a wake-up call for many households.

If you start something, finish it. That seems like one of those primal, "everything I needed to know I learned in kindergarten," common-sense rules that every professional should know and follow. Not so these days. From what I am seeing in my firm, people today are too preoccupied with getting going on the next thing to finish what they started in the first place. This is especially true when it comes to communication.
A new hire costs a company 1.25 to 1.4 times of the base salary range. To give you a better perspective, a person with an annual salary of $50,000 will cost your business between $62,500 and $70,000, accounting for the recruiting expenses, employment taxes, benefits, the physical space and equipment required for this particular hire on top of the base salary.
Millennials, the generation now dominating the U.S. workforce, have already become a prized and somewhat "complicated" generation for traditional employers.

Facebook wants to do it all. They want to be the place you connect with your friends — and where you discover new products (and buy them directly on Facebook). So, it makes sense that Facebook wants to be the place that publishes the news, not just shares it. In short, that's what Facebook's Instant Articles are all about. And Facebook is rolling out a new tool that allows you to compare the performance of Instant Articles with their mobile web equivalents.

As we all know, the marketing industry is fast-paced and constantly changing. Being agile is a challenge that marketers must overcome — trying new things and taking calculated risks are now crucial for marketing success and separate top marketing professionals from novices. You might try something that doesn't work or isn't right for your audience. But more importantly, you might find something that is a clear win and helps you change the course of your marketing efforts.

This narrative review provides an evidence-based overview of existing literature on the epidemiology, clinicopathological characteristics and prognostic outcomes of tumors arising in patients with multiple primary melanomas.
Giving students opportunities to tackle real-world problems is a surefire strategy to increase engagement. Yet many teachers struggle to design academically rigorous projects that connect students with the world beyond the classroom. How are they supposed to engage with community partners, recruit content experts and enlist authentic audiences — all while attending to student learning goals?
Usually, it's the teacher who supplies the questions that students should answer. Dan Rothstein shows how powerful learning can be when students come up with the questions themselves.
