Take avocado toast to the next level!By Chef Rossi The first time I heard about "avocado toast" was when a friend ordered it for brunch at an agonizingly hip eatery. "Ten dollars for toast with avocado on it?" I exclaimed. When her dish arrived, I understood.

Awesome Avocado ToastFor two, use 4 slices of...

“In Germany, the children believe that the Easter hare places eggs and other presents in the baskets they leave outside the nursery on the eve of Easter.”  The Cornishman, 1892. Though the origin of Easter eggs and Easter bunnies can be traced back to ancient times, the Victorians did not begin to celebrate Easter in the way that we know now until the late 19th century. It was then that Easter bunnies became fashionable. Before the 1880s, however, it was in Germany — not in England...

In yet another example of men's comfort being prioritized over women's safety, Tinder banned the woman behind the Instagram account @WhyDidYouSwipeRightTho, Bianca Lentini. On Instagram, Lentini showcases the daily threats of rape, deportation, and death she receives from male Tinder users. Posting screenshots from her Tinder, she shows how she comes back at these threats with humor, knowledge, and a cutting wit. Recently, she also has been reporting the men for violating Tinder's terms of service. Unsurprisingly, Tinder has banned none of these men. To be a...

This fantastic French city will sweep you off your feetBy Lisa Butterworth Sure, Paris may be the romance capital of France, but just a two-hour train ride away is a city that's equally charming, just as French, way less crowded, and yes, I'll say it, even more delicious: Lyon. It even beats Paris in river count, too, with the Rhône and the Saône both flowing through its center. Walk the city's narrow streets, dip into its many boulangeries, marvel at its pastel-colored buildings, soak up its...

The United States of America is dead. It died the moment White supremacy became the favored currency. It was demolished when it was understood that White America has to remain White — no matter what.It is now permissible, and even encouraged, for bigots in the public arena to proudly voice their disdain for the mixing of the masses. President Trump has stamped his approval, and the current climate reassuringly provides a platform for those who preach the good word.Jesus was White, Santa is White, God...

Pepsi, in an attempt at cultural relevancy, released a tone-deaf ad featuring Kendall Jenner attending an ambiguous protest marked by a sea of white faces holding vaguely worded signs like "Join the Conversation." The ad opens with Kendall mid-photo shoot sporting a metallic mini dress, a blonde wig, and a bold lip. A musician gives a slight chin nod to Jenner, an implicit invitation to leave the set and join the march. With a coy, knowing look, she strips the wig from her head, wipes off...
