We are so excited to have evolutive tarot reader María Soledad at our Primped BUST Craftacular this upcoming April 1st. She is a "human/actress extraordinare, evolutive tarot reader, Kabbalah astrologer fantastique, meditation goddess, absolute artist"—and she's coming to BUST Craftacular! Soledad was trained in meta geneaology, psychomagic and evolutive tarot by Alejandro Jodorowsky and his son, Cristobal. With these guides, she began hunting for conditioning, or patterns and limiting beliefs in her own unconscious. María Soledad uses "shadow as an ally for breathtaking adventures" and to...
If I say I'm an immigrant fearful of losing my current visa status due to an increasingly conservative political environment, you'd immediately have a picture in your mind, wouldn't you? You'd likely be wrong. By dint of birth, I'm what is more commonly referred to as an expatriate, which simply means I am white and from a wealthy, western country. I'm also not an immigrant to the United States but an emigrant from it; for the last six years, I've made my home in Paris, France....
 Bicycle Detail, Poster of the Société Parisienne, 1895. In September of 1896, British newspapers reported the remarkable use of a bicycle in a New Jersey murder case. The case involved two men who had both emigrated to America from London in the early 1890s. One of these men was a farmer named Mr. Haggett who settled down with his family on a farm near Somerville. The other man was a fellow named Mr. Clossen who Haggett employed as a farm laborer. Sometime in 1896, Haggett caught...

It’s because I’m black, isn’t it? Those were my thoughts as I strolled the sidewalk to my new home in Japan, and a woman swerved her minivan upon seeing me. I remember how her shock made me smile. I remember her fixed stare, the way she fixed her hair, then adjusted the wheel. And I continued to saunter along, knowing my blackness had power. Here it drew attention and brought wonder, and I learned that sometimes it paid to be a token in this country. I had...
This podcast makes total cents The podcast Her Money first came on my radar through Ann Friedman, feminist writer extraordinaire, when host Jean Chatzky had her on as a guest. I listened to the episode—about the financial side of freelance life—and realized how refreshing it was to hear women talking about money. Which is basically what each weekly show (ranging from 25 to 50 minutes) is all about. Chatzky, a financial journalist and author, interviews guests about traveling on the cheap, how to pay for college...
Revolutionize your kitchen with no-waste cooking Americans throw out 25 to 30 percent of the food they buy, but this wasn’t always the case. “No-waste cooking,” developed by generations of women hit hard by the Great Depression and wartime rationing, used to be the norm. It’s better for the environment, and will save you cash, too! Here’s how to bring it back. 1. Be real. Eighty percent of Americans make weekly meal plans; 65 percent go to the store with a list; 19 percent stick to both....
   During a March 9 debate in the House Energy and Commerce Committee on the GOP's plans to revise the Affordable Care Act, Democratic Rep. Mike Doyle (Pa.) began questioning the GOP's issues with Obamacare's health-insurance plan requirements. Since being signed into law by Obama in 2010, the ACA stipulates that all health plans cover essential benefits, including prescription drugs and hospital and doctor visits. Additionally, Obamacare requires that health plans cover pregnancy and child birth.   Although the debate lasted 27 hours, its most contentious moment occured —...
Lindsey McEntee isn’t a fan of the term "feminine hygiene products." “What the hell is a ‘feminine hygiene product’? Something about that phrase has always seemed ridiculous to me,” she says. “You don’t call shampoo ‘hair hygiene products,’ you know? Periods are already considered gross by some people — the word ‘hygiene’ adds to that. Every word counts, whether you intend it to or not.” McEntee is familiar with the power of words; she majored in marketing and English in college, with a minor in gender studies....
