    This weekend, millions of Americans will be traveling by air, rail, and road. At some point—for a treat, to counter exhaustion, to soothe frayed nerves, or just to have a minute to yourself—the desire for something hot and comforting in a cup may be strong, and as it’s the holidays maybe you will also have the desire to try one of the many-worded, holiday-specific concoctions at the nearest Starbucks, Dunkin’, McDonald’s, and Peet’s Coffee. With this in mind, my colleague Alaina Demopoulos and I spent an afternoon visiting branches of all the above in New York City to taste-test their holiday drinks. The winners, losers, and the meh are below. Obviously, every drink experience is different. Maybe we struck it lucky with some drinks and unlucky with others in the moment we ordered and drank them, and maybe you will experience them differently. We gave them scores based on sugar hit, holiday vibe, and after effects. Some pro-tips we can share: if you have the time, let the drink last. We found the drinks tasted very different as they...
    The newest trend in holiday gifts doesn't take up space in carry-on luggage or add weight to checked bags. It doesn't even need to be packed. Rather than giving holidaymakers new gear for travel — electronics organizers, Yeti thermoses, yet another airplane pillow — some are giving travel itself.    A survey of more than 1,000 Americans by the computer company Adobe showed that while 51% of respondents plan to purchase physical gifts this holiday season, 17% plan to give "an experience" instead. Survey respondents cited spa treatments (25%) and concert tickets (25%) most often, while others said they planned to give plane tickets (21%) and cooking classes (16%) as gifts. "Experience gifting" — as it is known — isn't new. But it's finding traction this holiday season as a push for minimalist packing converges with a pandemic that has made travel a top priority for many in 2022.    More experiences, less 'stuff'Migle Rakauskaite, the chief marketing manager at travel experience website Tinggly.com, said the pandemic is prompting an increase in travel experience gift purchases. "Gifting traditions are changing," she said....
    NEW YORK (AP) — Santa is back this year, but he pleads caution as he continues to tiptoe through the pandemic. “Be smart. Be caring. If you have the tiniest tickle in your throat, the tiniest feeling, worry about yourself and worry about everybody else, and know Santa will always be there next year,” said 57-year-old Kevin Chesney, who’s been donning the big red suit since he was a kid. Amid a downturn in Jolly Old Elves — about 15 percent fewer in one large database — Chesney is busier than ever from his North Pole in Moorestown, New Jersey. The photo studio where he works quickly sold out its 4,500 appointments to sit with him and the seven other Santas in the studio’s stable. They’re among the brave in Santa’s ranks with full-contact visits, lap sitting included, though Chesney wears a mask until just before the photos are taken. Other Santas might not be wearing masks or plastic face shields, or hanging out in protective snow globes like many did last year, but it seems 50-50 this season that...

    Joe Rogan’s The Joe Rogan Experience has once again been knocked out of the top spot on Spotify’s podcast chart. Rogan first signed an exclusive deal with Spotify in 2020 in a reported $100 million deal, the platform telling shareholders he “stimulated new user additions, activated first-time podcast listeners, and [drove] favorable engagement trends, including vodcast consumption.” “The Joe Rogan Experience performed above expectations with respect to new user additions and engagement. Notable Q1 content launches in the US included Renegades: Born in the USA (Higher Ground), Unlocking Us with Brene Brown (Parcast), Ringer Dish Feed – Taylor Swift (The Ringer), and Welcome To Your Fantasy (Gimlet),” the platform added in an April 2021 announcement. “Renegades: Born in the USA, featuring former President Barack Obama and Bruce Springsteen, was the second-largest podcast on Spotify in March (on an MAU basis) and has been our most international show to-date, with listenership extending across more than 150 countries,” it said. The podcaster, who sat comfortably at Spotify’s number one spot, was later briefly surpassed by podcast Banter from gaming stars Sapnap and...

    In this article RBLX FB A new video by Inspired by Iceland pushes back against experiencing life through the "metaverse," as described by Mark Zuckerberg during Facebook's rebranding to Meta on Thursday, Oct. 28, 2021.Michael Nagle | Bloomberg | Getty ImagesOnline dating apps, a crypto exchange and a professional wrestling brand are among the many companies that tried to weave their disparate and seemingly unrelated businesses into the metaverse discussion this quarter. The concept was on the top of analysts' minds after Facebook changed its corporate name to Meta last month in preparation for "an embodied internet where you're in the experience, not just looking at it," as defined by Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg. Zuckerberg is betting the metaverse, a computer-generated world, is where people will work, play and socialize using the company's virtual reality headsets. But executives around the world have lots of differing opinions on what the metaverse is and when we can expect it. Some view the metaverse as something that already exists, such as worlds created by Roblox. Others see it as a vague...

But the truth is science and space exploration are about trying, testing, making mistakes and trying again. “The NASA Experience,” a new exhibition at Chabot Space and Science Center in Oakland, captures the spirit of research and discovery by showing us the world through the eyes of NASA’s scientists and space crews. “The NASA Experience” features artifacts and activities for all ages and it’s the highlight of Chabot’s reopening Friday that follows 18 months of construction. “The NASA Experience” is part of the Chabot’s new NASA Ames Visitor Center and it is guided by the work that happens at the NASA Ames Research Center near Mountain View.

    A HOLIDAYMAKER was sickened to find blood in the bed and pubic hair in the bath when he stayed at 'Britain's worst seaside hotel'.

    Review: Alienware’s Aurora R13 Gaming Desktop Debuts with a Stunning Redesign and Ultimate Performance Week 9 Fantasy Football Fades: Will Mixon lose mojo vs. Browns? Jude Hill Photographed by Seye Isikalu Jude Hill was only 9 years old when he discovered he’d been chosen — from among about 300 other kids — to play the lead in Belfast,Kenneth Branagh’s semiautobiographical black-and-white eulogy for his home city in Northern Ireland in the late 1960s. The first-time actor recalls the moment he found out: His mother, Shauneen, kept “very quiet” after picking him up from school in the small Northern Irish village of Gilford and waited until they got home before showing him the life-changing email. “I just had a wide-eyed expression. … It was crazy,” says Hill, now 11 and as charming and well-spoken as his onscreen character, Buddy. The casting came about after a lengthy audition process, starting with a self-tape (“I had to cry,” says Hill), followed by numerous Zoom calls, and finally one with Branagh. At the time, Hill and his family knew little about the film...
    ROME — Pope Francis has announced his prayer intention for the month of November, which focuses on those suffering from depression. “Let us pray that people suffering from depression or burnout may find support and a light from everyone that opens them to life,” he said Wednesday in a video message distributed through his Worldwide Prayer Network. “Work overload and stress cause many people to experience extreme exhaustion — mental, emotional, affective, and physical exhaustion,” the pontiff declared. “Sadness, apathy, and spiritual fatigue end up dominating the life of people, who find themselves overwhelmed by the pace of modern life,” he continued. These people need support from friends and a listening ear rather than advice, he suggested. Pope Francis: “Work overload and stress cause many people to experience extreme exhaustion — mental, emotional, affective, and physical exhaustion.” (Getty) “Let us try to be close to those who are exhausted, desperate, and hopeless, often simply listening in silence,” he said, “because we cannot go and say to a person: ‘No, life is not so bad.

    WTOPs Stephanie Gaines-Bryant posing with her Marine Marathon 10K medals. There was no early morning subway ride for me, no street closures, no crowded start line and no smelly porta-potties. This year’s Marine Corps Marathon and 10K were virtual. This year’s race was my 7th Marine Corps Marathon 10K, and my first virtual. I completed the full Marine Corps Marathon in 1999 and quickly decided that half marathons and 10K’s (6.2 miles) fit much better into my schedule as a working mother of four. I then completed the MCM 10K in 2007, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016 and today. I began the 2021 virtual 10K at my doorstep in Bowie, Maryland. I was run/walking to promote women’s health and wellness. I ran/walked to Centennial Park, three-fourths of a mile from my home where I circled the park twice. I then traveled to Allen Pond Park, another three-fourths of a mile away, where I circled twice. The rest of the miles were completed in the trails that run through two neighborhoods in Bowie — Glen Allen and Covington. WTOPs Stephanie Gaines-Bryant...
    JAY, Vt. (AP) — After a winter with mask mandates and restrictions on the number of people on lifts, ski resorts are expecting the upcoming season to be more like the pre-pandemic days on the slopes. Any virus-related protocols at resorts will vary depending on where they are and the local health rules in place. Some resorts are requiring masks indoors and at restaurants, others may continue to limit the number of skiers on the slopes for a better experience and some will require people to show proof of vaccination at certain venues. “What’s new is a lot more optimism,” said J.J. Toland, a spokesperson for Jay Peak Resort in Vermont. While many resorts did better than expected last season as people got outside during the pandemic, ski areas where public health restrictions were the strongest, like in Vermont, suffered a hit, said Adrienne Saia Isaac, marketing and communications director for the National Ski Areas Association. On top of that, the U.S.-Canadian border was closed so resorts like Jay Peak, which rely on those visitors from up north, lost business....
    HUMANS are complex beings and there are multiple components that drive our behaviors and affect our personalities, the ego is one of them. There are multiple components that help humans feel a sense of self and identity. According to the Austrian neurologist and psychologist Sigmund Freud, our personalities are made up of three elements: the id, the ego, and the superego. 2The ego represents one's self identity. What does the ego represent? In order to understand the ego, one must understand the id and how the ego develops from the id. The ego keeps the id’s impulses in check and ensures they are expressed in a socially acceptable manner. The id is present from birth and is a primary element of personality. We need the ego to keep the id in check as the id acts on more primitive behaviors. According to Very Well Mind the ego functions in three places of our consciousness, “The ego functions in the conscious, preconscious, and unconscious mind.The ego is the component of personality that is responsible for dealing with reality.” The ego helps...

    (CNN)Months after convicting the former Minneapolis Police officer who murdered George Floyd, jurors describe the trial as a life-altering experience that still haunts them. It was their first and only interview since finding Derek Chauvin guilty in April of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. Seven jury members told CNN's Don Lemon their verdict in the most important trial of the Black Lives Matter era was based solely on the evidence, not their views on race.The gruesome video of Chauvin pressing his knee on Floyd's neck for more than nine minutes as the Black man cried out that he couldn't breathe is seared into their minds, they said.

    Jane Poynter, co-founder of Space Perspective, says space tourism is inspiring  The success of Blue Origin's space tourism flights have sparked concerns among the public and well-known figures, such as Prince William, who say it is a rich person's game that is unnecessary when Earth badly needs help.   For Jane Poynter, 59, co-founder of Space Perspective – a firm using a giant balloon to send humans into the stratosphere – the industry is not starving the Earth of help, but helping its inhabitants better understand their world.   'Space exploration has formed a crucial role in forming our understanding of our planet,' she told DailyMail.com in an interview.

    New York (CNN)Twenty years ago this weekend, Apple launched the original, iconic iPod. Six years later, I was gifted my first and only version of the device: a third-generation iPod Nano, fit with a square screen, a click wheel and an engraving on the back: "Sofia Barrett, Happy 11th Birthday." By that time, the iPod line had begun its long decline from relevance. Apple had already introduced the iPhone, which would become the centerpiece of its ecosystem of products, and catapult it toward being the most valuable tech company in the world. But for the next five years — a key part of my teenage life — the iPod helped shape my relationship with music and technology. The best streaming sticks and devices of 2021If the iPod was a gateway for many customers into Apple's hardware and software products, it was also an early gateway for me into a type of consumption that we take for granted online: a seemingly limitless amount of content, available the moment you want it at the tap of a button, often for less than...
    Emily Ratajkowski has shared her anguish over her decision to accuse Robin Thicke of groping her in her new book, saying her 'beliefs and politics evolved' to the point where she couldn't remain silent any longer.  Ratajkowski was 21 years old when she danced topless in the video for the song, a massive hit that spent 12 weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100. Earlier this month, the model accused singer Robin Thicke, 44, of 'groping' her bare breasts as they shot the suggestive clip in 2013. On Thursday, she took to Instagram to offer a further explanation of why she made the claim.  She said she included an essay about her experiences on set in her new book, My Body, because 'it says so much about the evolution of my beliefs and politics.'  'I had a hard time writing that essay for a bunch of different reasons,' Emily began in a lengthy post shared during an Instagram Q&A on Thursday Earlier this month, the 30-year-old model accused singer Robin Thicke of 'groping' her bare breasts as they shot the suggestive music video...
    Being overweight or obese can increase a person's likelihood of being symptomatic after contracting COVID-19, a new study finds. Researchers from Children's Hospital Los Angeles investigated the likelihood of COVID-19 symptoms depending on patients' weights. They found overweight and obese people were more likely to have a symptomatic Covid case than those with normal weights. The disparity was largest for those aged 12 to 17, with overweight and obese participants found to be twice as likely to suffer a symptomatic case. Overweight people also felt more symptoms on average, reporting three compared to only two reported on average for people with lower weights. Researchers found that overweight and obese teens were twice as likely to suffer a symptomatic case of COVID-19 than those who were of healthy weight (center). They were also more likely to experience more symptoms from the virus America's obesity epidemic likely made the pandemic worse for the nation, and turned some potentially asymptomatic cases into more mild ones (file image) 'Even when infected with similar amounts of virus, overweight and obesity are risk factors for greater...
    THE Law of Vibration states that in order to materialize something, you must first match the vibration of what you want. Everything in the cosmos, including thoughts, is made up of energy and depending on the content of the thought, they vibrate at different frequencies according to the theory. 1The vibration in your body is determined by your moods What is The Law of Vibration? The main point of this law is that we all have a specific vibrational frequency, and that you may learn to modify your vibration if you're in a low vibrational situation or experience. According to the law, the more attuned you are to your own energy, the more you will notice how your vibrations influence your entire experience. Theorists say by choosing and directing our ideas, we have the ability to control the frequency of our being. The vibration of your body is determined by your emotional moods. And, to a considerable part, these vibrations determine how you live your life because they create resonance with anything that vibrates at the same...

    Children inside the Camp retail location in New York, June 4, 2019.Gabby Jones | Bloomberg | Getty Images A year after Toys R Us liquidated, the brand's new owners vowed to make its stores more of an experience for kids: A place where children could test out toys at their own liberty and play games with friends. That experiment was tried, and failed, at the Garden State Plaza mall in New Jersey. When the Covid-19 pandemic struck, few consumers were venturing outside of their homes to head to the mall — let alone to mingle in a crowded environment with children. The last-standing Toys R Us locations operated by Tru Kids shuttered earlier this year. But as anxieties around the coronavirus ease, one company is betting that experience-based retail will come back stronger than ever, particularly among families with young kids. New York City-based Camp hopes that its approach is better than that of Toys R Us, too. And the upcoming holiday season will put Camp's business — part experience, part toy retailer — to the test. On Tuesday, Camp...
    Sponsored Content Covid-19 was a terrible, traumatic tragedy that impacted every aspect of our lives. Everything has been turned upside down, from more than 10,000 businesses closing in the UK to the way we teach and learn. We took a moment to look back at the last two years to find out how exactly the educational process of students has changed as a result of Covid-19. The virus has been far-reaching indeed, and it has led to problematic scars on the younger minds of this generation. So let’s find out how deeply the education sector has been affected by it. How Lessons Worked Pre-Covid Let’s start with a glance back through time. Before all of this, kids lined up in playgrounds to start classes at 9 am. They would be together with their teacher in a class all day, usually around 30 of them, and then they would return home. For older children in secondary education, this lesson plan varied slightly. They would mingle with other students in the same year as them as they moved between their faculties,...

    William Shatner described being particularly struck by how different the real experience of going into space was from the simulations he ran with Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin.  The 90-year-old actor joined Blue Origin Vice President of New Shepard Mission and Flight Operations Audrey Powers as well as Dr. Chris Boshuizen and Glen de Vries as they blasted off on the aerospace company’s latest suborbital spaceflight on Wednesday. The successful mission makes Shatner the oldest person to travel to space.  After sharing some profound words about the experience as soon as he touched down in Texas, the former "Star Trek" actor spoke on the "Today" show Thursday where he explained how the simulations for the flight didn’t necessarily prepare him for the immensely moving and physically taxing experience.  WILLIAM SHATNER'S BIGGEST ROLES, FROM 'STAR TREK' TO 'BOSTON LEGAL' William Shatner smiles during a media availability at the Blue Origin spaceport near Van Horn, Texas, Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2021.  The "Star Trek" actor and three fellow passengers hurtled to an altitude of 66.5 miles (107 kilometers) over the West Texas desert in...

    More than half of COVID-19 survivors experience symptoms of the virus six months after recovery, a new study finds. Researchers from Pennsylvania State University, in State College, performed a meta-analysis of previous studies investigating patients who said they still had symptoms months after initially testing positive.   Symptoms such as cognitive impairment, anxiety and chronic fatigue were the most common reported after recovering from the virus. The implications of this study are large for the health care world going forward, because many will be carrying serious symptoms for potentially years. More than half of patients experience COVID-19 symptoms six months after recovery, equaling the totals in the short and intermediate periods after recovery from the virus Cognitive impairment and difficulty concentrating are common neurological conditions faced by Covid patients after recovery. Many will also develop anxiety after recovering from the virus More than half people who recovered from COVID-19 were still showing chest abnormalities or required some additional help to breathe comfortably. Just under half of patients also reported some sort of functional impairments The researchers, who published their findings Wednesday...

    I can usually predict the next sex trend by the emails and messages I get - and right now my inboxes are screaming 'virtual reality porn'! 'I've just discovered my partner with a VR headset on, touching himself,' one woman writes, 'Now I know why he's not interested in sex with me anymore.' The VR porn industry - computer generated simulation of three-dimensional sexual interactions - is big business. The global value of the VR adult content market is expected to rise from more than $700US this year to $19bn by 2026. Pornhub averages half a million views per day of the 3,000 free VR videos it offers. On Christmas Day that can shoot up to 900,000. (Turkey and party hats are clearly either exceedingly boring…or arousing.) Like most new things with technology, VR seems sci-fi right now, but it will quickly become the norm for many people. Currently, VR porn is aimed mostly at straight men – which is probably why I'm getting lots of messages from concerned straight women. Having just been to an art exhibition (the Van...

    GLENDALE, Ariz. – Here is how the 49ers (2-3) graded in Sunday’s 17-10 loss to the host Arizona Cardinals (5-0): PASS OFFENSE: D+ Trey Lance’s opening drive ended with an overthrow and interception, and a fourth-down pass got deflected to seal the 49ers’ fate. His receivers didn’t help with multiple drops, by Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and Mohamed Sanu. Right tackle Mike McGlinchey played through an early (ankle?) injury and had his roughest outing of the season, including two of the team’s five holding penalties. Samuel caught 3-of-9 targets but he did score their lone touchdown (on a run). RUN OFFENSE: B Lance’s 16 carries (89 yards) were as many as Colin Kaepernick had in his 181-yard playoff win over Green Bay. Lance mixed improvised runs with designed keepers and zone-read options, and his ability wiggle out of jams could convince Kyle Shanahan to keep him as the starter over Jimmy Garoppolo (calf). Elijah Mitchell’s return had some chunk runs but also some quick stops. PASS DEFENSE: B+ Familiar story here, with some early...
    SAN FRANCISCO — The entire San Francisco Giants team congregated at an undisclosed location for a Texas Hold ‘Em tournament on Wednesday night, their eyes simultaneously watching the Los Angeles Dodgers, St. Louis Cardinals National League wild card game on TV. Giants manager Gabe Kapler was focused on the tournament, but he couldn’t help but notice a moment. A 41-year-old Albert Pujols pinch hitting in the bottom of the ninth, tie game, the Dodgers season on the line. He had to wonder what Pujols — with the Dodgers in his ninth career postseason appearance — was feeling. “I wonder if his heart is beating fast,” Kapler said he thought at the time. “I imagine he felt pretty good about his chances.” Kapler can only hope that his team feels their hearts race when the NLDS begins Friday night at Oracle Park against the Dodgers. The Giants roster is made up of plenty of postseason novices, but a handful who’ve experienced those intense playoff nerves. The postseason veterans, he hopes, can help the new guys embrace those...
