Home Health Care vs. Home Care: What’s Right for You?

Caring for an aging parent or relative isn’t always easy physically or emotionally. But with the average U.S. life expectancy up to age 79 in 2013 — compared to 68 in 1950 — it’s increasingly becoming the new normal for families to be raising kids and taking care of elderly parents at the same time.

A beginner’s guide to Miami botánicas

Well, hello there. And welcome to The Most Wonderful Time of Year™. No, wait! That’s the season premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Torch 1,000 Calories in Wynwood With This Former Miami Heat Dancer

First rule of Vixen: You do not talk about Vixen. Not when you can Instagram about it at a glam bar with selfie-optimal lighting. And at the new Vixen Studio in Miami, that’s only expected.

E. Coli Can't Seem to Quit Chipotle. And We Just Can't Deal.

Another day, another Chipotle E. coli outbreak. That's what it feels like, anyway. Because on Monday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said that it would be looking into five new cases of the food-borne illness, linked to — you guessed it — Chipotle. What's E. coli? Well, there are a bunch of different strains, but all lead pretty much down the same path. And if you're eating lunch right now, maybe put your sandwich down for a sec. Done? Good.

The idea behind chakras—the seven points of energy (or spiritual power) aligning the spine—is as old as Hinduism itself, with early mentions in the Vedas dating back to over 3,000 years ago.

Would You Rock This Smartphone Ring?

You used to call me on my cell phone . . . until I found this smartphone ring, and all I had to do was peep my finger and say: "Let me send them to voicemail right about now." Oh, wait. You thought we were kidding. Nope, that's totally possible. Because today, Neyya came blinging out of the gates. Who's Neyya? Well — it's actually more of a what.
