"anger" isn't a dirty word

I have a friend who posts photos of obnoxious folks he encounters while commuting. He doesn't know these people who yell into their cell phones or occupy two seats with their bulky luggage. But he opts to shame them on Facebook, always adding a pithy caption to each portrait so we can all laugh about their bad behavior. Is this perfectly nice? Maybe not, but I'd say it's better for my friend than sitting there seething at his fellow passengers. We take up the topic of anger and how to cope with it starting on page 118.

maria menounos wins in the kitchen

Finding inspiration "Cooking was such a big part of my life growing up. My grandfather was a chef in Greece, and my mom was a school cafeteria cook, so cooking is in my blood. Living with a type 1 diabetic father meant our meals were always healthy, because they had to be." Mom's best advice "Not to be afraid. There are no mistakes. That's why I wanted to write this book with her. The tips throughout the book encourage women to try to make the meals their own so they have control over their diet and realize cooking isn't so scary." Healthy-eating myth "That healthy meals have to lack taste. I know vegetables can look boring, and they're not our instinctive choice, but healthy foods can taste amazing, and you will feel better than if…

Mad Men--era executives rendezvoused over golf (OK, and booze), so why not schedule our meetings over yoga and smoothies? Cue the rise of "sweatworking"—the business-meets-pleasure craze of joining clients or colleagues for a sweat session as an alternative to the conference room. Payal Kadakia, founder of the workout-scheduling service ClassPass, says she sees this all the time now: "It allows people to disconnect from always being plugged-in and get creative juices flowing."
