Emails Perplexing

"The potential for email misfires between bosses and subordinates is mounting, as the volume of email grows and more people read it on the fly on mobile devices. Sometimes the boss is too rushed to read. Employees fuel the problems by sending poorly written emails. Deeper issues can arise if bosses' and employees' communication styles clash." —At first I was thinking to myself, "Oh no, this problem will only get worse as millennials flood the workplace, because we all know the only thing millennials like more than writing essays about their emotions is getting a constant stream of unambiguous praise from their superiors," but then I realized [...]


Real Vitamins Not Available On Canal Street

So I've been trying to figure out this Glaceau Vitaminwater billboard that's up by the newspaper stand on the corner of Delancey and Clinton Streets. REAL VITAMINS NOT AVAILABLE ON CANAL STREET, it says. CHINATOWN GETS THEIR VITAMINS. That's all it says. Totally confusing.

Is this symbolic of the increasingly hostile urban turf wars between automobile drivers and bicyclists?

Gays Thrown Into Hot Turmoil!

Mating and dating in America's gayest city has been turned on its head. With one smooth twist of Andrew Cuomo's gloating pen, New York City's gays now find themselves in a whole different ballgame (as it were) of sexy-time outcomes. Now, like the ladies, the gays must think: am I marriage material? Am I marriage material if I put out on the first date? When and how do we get engaged? And how can we best torture our single friends with expensive destination weddings that require multiple-leg flights and pre-parties and annoying and eccentric gift registries? Long-time couples are in a similar ruckus—even those who've never wanted to get [...]
