Europeans have been baking with olive oil for thousands of years, so they know that if you partially freeze olive oil, it acts a lot like butter. Once in the oven, the cold pockets of oil react with the heat to make steam, creating flakiness. About an hour before starting to bake, place the olive oil in a thin plastic container. Freeze until it’s opaque and congealed but still soft, like the consistency of slightly melted sorbet. Top this pie with a scoop of coconut-milk...
Writer Catherine Nichols had submitted the manuscript of her novel to many publishing agents. Greeted with rejections and little interest in the book she and her friends felt was perhaps her best work, she began to feel like the problem didn’t lie in her writing. Curious to see if it was a case of gender inequality, she created George Leyer. She sent out 50 queries under her homme de plume, or male name pseudonym. As it turns out, George is “eight and a half times better...
When it comes to birth control, the benefits are endless: relief of medical issues including endometriosis, lowering the risk of ovarian cysts, and preventing unplanned pregnancies.

Netflix done good. Netflix done reeeeeeal good. According to a recent post on Netflix’s blog, Netflix employees now have unlimited maternity and paternity leave.

We’ll just keep paying them normally, eliminating the headache of switching to state or disability pay.” Is this not fantastic? It’s fantastic. America has...
Fujifilm just released an iteration of their bestselling mirrorless camera, the X-T1, with one crucial difference: the new model, X-T1 IR can see through clothing. IR can see infrared light and long-wave ultraviolet light, which not only yields some interesting photos (think of that trippy Photobooth filter!), but also the ability to zoom right through thin clothing. Fujifilm denies creating the camera for voyeurs, insisting it’s designed with crime-scene investigators, healthcare applications, and scientists in mind. The future is here, folks – think of the possibilities! Wired...
