Our current cover lady, the magical, hippie-dippie, wise-beyond-her-years Shailene Woodley is also starring as ass-kicking heroine Beatrice (Tris) Prior in the upcoming Divergent.  The movie looks awesome. Set in a future dystopia--reminiscent of the middle school favorite The Giver and ever popular, ever awesome The Hunger Games--Divergent takes place in a society divided into 5 factions defined by virtues. At the age of 16, teenagers must decide whether to stay in their faction, or transfer. Read More
Some dates are so seriously horrid, the only consolation is knowing you'll have an amazingly awkward/hilarious story to tell over drinks with your friends. If you've been there, Dear Kate wants to know.  Dear Kate makes a new type of underwear for women with a built-in breathable lining that protects like a pantyliner! They come in many different cuts and styles, and are perfect for working out, or as backup to protect your new splurge-purchase sheets on those heavy flow nights (we've all been there). Read More

In rural India, over 80 percent of women use rags, often ripped from old clothing, to manage their monthly visit from good ol’ Aunt Flo. Though we’re all about environmentally friendly period solutions here at BUST, the statistics tell a different story: the often unsanitary rag cloths that women use during their periods can cause infections and even infertility, cancer, and death.   When inventor Muruganantham found out that his wife used rag cloths, he went where no man has gone before:  he not only designed a sanitary pad, but tested it himself.   Seriously.

For many of us it’s been some time since school was last in session, and we can’t help but wax nostalgic when September rolls around.  Lately, there is more to be missed from back-to-school season than afternoon recess, field trips and flavorless foods served with an ice cream scoop. I’m talking about the high quality education that has been lacking in our public school systems for the past few decades. Read More
Hansel & Gretel is one of those twisted fairytales I personally enjoyed as a kid.  I mean, getting stuffed alive into an oven is scary as all get out, but it wasn't the typical damsel-in-distress story that a lot of the fairytales that we grew up on were. This holiday season, there's a special treat because New York City’s Metropolitan Opera is presenting Hansel & Gretel, the opera: Engelbert Humperdinck’s (not that Humperdinck) take on the Brothers Grimm classic fairytale.
