    Christie Ciraulo and the Mighty Mermaids Swim the English Channel!

    When I first heard of Kristine, it was about her work in textile innovation and sustainability that caught my attention. But what really got me focused,  was her personal story of resilience and drive. She is a two-time stage-four ovarian-cancer survivor. In her early 50s she found herself at...

    We get things wrong sometimes. Not often, but when we do, we have highly informed readers who set us straight.We had previously stated in our "3 Things We Like" that UV goes through car windshields and this causes the skin on one’s hands to be at risk of sun...

    Concierge Sun Care? Yes, It’s a Brilliant Service

    We are big sun-protection nerds here, and we know that sun protection is confusing at best. It's not as simple as smearing on some Coppertone and hoping for the best anymore. A lot of alleged sun-protection products are far from effective and in some cases are doing much more...

    14 Exercises We Can’t Do. Really? Says Who?

    Want to rile me up? Tell me I can't do something because of my age. That's known as poking the bear. Bad idea. The exercise experts at Reader's Digest have decided that people over 50 should be as sedentary as possible, with maybe a bit of mall walking thrown...
