After making $200 off her own used clothes, she turned to some of her favorite places to shop: thrift stores. Much of her business' growth came from her dorm room at Duke University, where she graduated last year with a degree in psychology. I had maybe 200 or so items in my dorm room my sophomore year, and now I have 1,300 items [in a storage unit]." How much cash do you need to start a thrifting side hustle? [In terms of the thrifting], you can start with as little as $5.

A nurse practitioner at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, he and a colleague did a study on treadmill burns in children who were treated at the hospital. The 2017 study, published in the Journal of Burn Care & Research, found treadmill burns were more severe than burns from touching a hot stovetop. “What struck us most was that these treadmill burns were very deep and hard to heal,” Noffsinger said.

Sophie Riegel turned her boredom into a six-figure side hustle. Riegel was a Duke University freshman in 2020, when Covid-19 turned her first year of college into a remote experience. Within weeks, she was selling roughly $50 per day of thrifted clothing, mostly buying T-shirts for $1 apiece and selling them for up to $10. The total figure is slightly higher, she says, due to in-person sales and other revenue for which she doesn't have documentation. Now, Riegel sells around 10 items per day, averaging between $400 and $500 in revenue daily.

Whether it's starting a business or mastering an ambitious skill, having big career goals can be exciting but overwhelming. How do you successfully achieve them while navigating the demands and responsibilities of daily life? As a researcher in the science of happiness, I was lucky: I was able to learn the secrets that helped me make my journey a little easier. Identify your 'what' and 'why'My "what" was writing a book, and my "why" was to help people find greater happiness. One study that inspired me studied scientists who were striving to achieve extremely long-term objectives, like finding cancer treatments and seeking out extraterrestrial life.

Opinion | Are Anti-Trump Voters Feeling ‘Burned Out’?
  + stars: | 2024-02-22 | by ( ) www.nytimes.com   time to read: +1 min
To the Editor:In “Fighting Trump, Some Voters Are ‘Burned Out on Outrage’” (front page, Feb. 20), you claim that Democrats and nonpartisan groups that work to preserve democracy in America are tired of fighting. I see deepening expertise, expanding networks and steely resolve. Organizations like mine that were created by amateurs intent on doing what they could to save democratic institutions are now seasoned and hard at work. Claire UllmanNew YorkThe writer is co-founder and co-director of Students for Voting Justice, founded in 2020 to involve college students in getting out the vote in communities of color in the South. Thank heavens none of these ordinary Americans gave in to what must have been their own deep mental, physical and financial exhaustion, first to win independence and then to keep expanding our democracy.

New York CNN —Days after explosive bribery claims about President Joe Biden came ripping apart at the seams, Fox News and the broader MAGA Media universe have declined to walk back their factually-challenged narrative. (Photo by Erik McGregor/LightRocket via Getty Images) Erik McGregor/LightRocket/Getty ImagesThe lack of a retraction or any real sign of contrition comes as the Smirnov allegations continue to implode in spectacular fashion. The network functions as the main organ in the right-wing media universe and has tremendous influence over the Republican Party base. By refusing to fully acknowledge the false claims and press GOP lawmakers on their relentless promotion of it, Fox News is effectively giving GOP lawmakers permission to continue doing so. A Fox News spokesperson did not off me a comment on the network’s coverage of the revelations surrounding the informant.

In any case, lockdowns eventually ended, vaccines were finally released, and I became a digital nomad in the summer of 2021 — and then, I began to date men abroad. Here's what I learned after dating guys in Scotland, France, Spain, and Argentina. Still, the guy was more present during our relationship than any of the men I'd dated back in the US. I had to check my privilege after dating in ArgentinaWhile dating in Argentina, I faced a bit of a reality check. To acknowledge this privilege — and balance it out — I began addressing Americans' "travel privilege" in my writing and engaging more with local communities abroad.

In the late 1970s, a writer working on a book about the Eagles that would never be published obtained 100-odd pages of notes and lyrics related to the multiplatinum album “Hotel California.”The papers included handwritten drafts of lyrics by the band’s songwriter and drummer, Don Henley. Decades later, according to court documents, the writer, Ed Sanders, sold the trove to a prominent dealer in rare manuscripts who had placed the papers of Norman Mailer and Tom Wolfe in university libraries and had worked to sell Bob Dylan’s archive for a sum estimated at up to $20 million. In 2022, prosecutors in Manhattan said that the manuscript dealer, Glenn Horowitz, and two other men had been charged with conspiring to possess stolen property valued at over $1 million that included embryonic versions of hits like “Hotel California,” “New Kid in Town” and “Life in the Fast Lane.”On Wednesday, the three men are scheduled to go on trial in an unusual proceeding that may feature testimony from Mr. Henley, who told a grand jury the material was stolen. The trial will be decided by the judge, not a jury.

One of the lesser-known problems facing many low-wage workers in America is unpredictable and scarce work hours — something the writer Adelle Waldman knows firsthand. She worked at a big-box store for six months to research her latest novel, about a group of employees plotting to overthrow their bad boss. In this audio essay, Waldman explains how her experience exposed her to the way inflexible hours can wreak havoc in people’s lives, from lack of health insurance to the inability to pick up a second job. (A full transcript of this audio essay will be available within 24 hours of publication in the audio player above.)

In the 18-minute short film "The Heart," Malia is credited with writing and directing under the name 'Malia Ann,' conspicuously omitting her well-known surname. The Daily Beast called the short film "solid but mostly forgettable" in a section called "Nepo Baby of the Week."

AdvertisementAlexey Navalny, a dissident and the political nemesis of Russian President Vladimir Putin, spent the past few years of his life behind bars but still managed to stay connected to the outside world. In a letter sent to a friend, a photographer named Evgeny Feldman, Navalny said former President Donald Trump's agenda for a second term was "really scary," according to the Times. He said if President Joe Biden were to have a health issue, "Trump will become president," adding: "Doesn't this obvious thing concern the Democrats?" The journalist Sergei Parkhomenko said he received a letter from Navalny on February 13, a few days before Navalny's death was announced. Trump, for his part, didn't mention Navalny in the days after his death, despite condemnations from other leaders who directly blamed Putin.

Kim labeled the rule “stupid,” even with “many safeguards,” while PGA Tour caddie Kip Henley lamented “another benchmark in the dumbest rule in all of sports.”“Seriously, why even have scorecards on the PGA Tour?” Henley asked in another post. USGA rules do not disqualify players for returning a score higher than their actual score, only those returned that are lower. The PGA Tour, in accordance with USGA guidelines, follows a multi-step process to check the scorecards of fields peaking at 156-strong.

These latest Trump offerings may not seem destined to have more success than Trump’s failed business ventures, such as his Trump Vodka and Trump Steaks. In the fourth quarter of 2023, Trump’s presidential campaign raised a paltry $19 million — down significantly from the $25 million the campaign raised in the third quarter of 2023. (By contrast, President Joe Biden’s campaign raised $33 million in the fourth quarter of 2023.)

St. Patrick’s Cathedral is perhaps the most famous Catholic church outside of the Vatican. Enrique Salvo, pastor of St. Patrick’s, did not mince words in a statement he issued from the Archdiocese of New York’s office only days later. Cecilia Gentili's casket is brought into St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City, on February 15. The Archdiocese of New York revealed its true colors with this statement, and along with them, the persistence of anti-LGBTQ judgment within the Catholic Church.
