Poor, poor Paula Abdul. Her time with “American Idol” has been over for barely 24 hours and the media could not wait to move on. The big announcement that Posh Spice will be making a guest-judge appearance is completely overshadowing the sadness of the Abdul-“Idol” split. I can’t help but give into the media frenzy… READ MORE »

You gotta hand it to the Olsen twins. The former child stars have grown up into chic fashionistas who know a thing or two about fashion. Case in point: the Fall 2009 collection of their Elizabeth and James shoe line (named after their little sister and brother.) Whats odd about it is also what makes… READ MORE »

Just the other day, I realized I hardly ever see any lush greenery in the concrete jungle I call home. Some Australian designers had the same thought, so they created “Jewelry with a Living Organism,” a collection of jewelry (term used loosely) in which every item contains at least one tiny plant.

I normally find conventions kind of creepy and cult-like, but this one actually sounds amazing: The National Single Cougars Convention for Young Men & Older Women in Silicon Valley. I’m not sure at what age you become a legitimate cougar, but I do know that the second I turned 30, much younger boys were popping… READ MORE »

For the first time ever, researchers have decoded the complete HIV virus genome. This wasn’t an easy feat, because HIV carries its genetic information on RNA instead of DNA which is more complex because it’s 3D.
