Imagine this: you are watching your favorite league game in a stadium for the first time ever, and it turns out to be a big match. With the final home run, you know victory is yours. The entire stadium is on its feet, yelling happily at the top of their lungs – their happiness rests only in the moment. But you’re not “there” – you’re too busy talking pictures!

Weesh: App for Couples

Be it food, health, travel, or lifestyle; you will find a mobile app for just about anything. But what you won’t so easily find is an app for couples. We’ve written about Pair in the past, a one-to-one networking app for couples, but other than Pair, there aren’t many other app options that let couples remain in touch and document their special moments. What’s more, the couple apps out there don’t address one key relationship pain point: how to spend your quality time together. With this in mind, the development team at JustUs created Weesh, a mobile app for couples that lets the couple create a “Weesh” list for activities they’d like to experience with one another. Like Pair, the app lets couples share precious moments through their phones; however, the app is specifically geared toward planning dates together, including activity suggestions.

Imagine a life without the Internet for 24 hours. Could this even happen? Yes and even if just for a single day, the prospect sounds terrifying. Imagine a day without email, Twitter, and Facebook.

Today Geek is Chic. In fact Mark Zukerberg‘s wedding got the Paparazzi as excited as Lady Gaga’s latest world tour. In our day and age it seems as though there’s been a paradigm shift. Techies now draw the same attention as Hollywood celebs. Ironically, unlike many “reality stars,” techies are famous for actually doing (or creating) something.

Etiquette is about more than the correct fork or knife. In today’s society, which is increasingly dependent on technology (with texting more common place than talking), business etiquette is as critical as ever.

In conjunction with National Business Etiquette Week (June 3 to 9), Elizabeth Venturini, a college admissions and career strategist, debuts: ‘Charm School for the College-Bound,’ a workshop for young people on the essentials of business etiquette.

When a woman falls for man, it happens because her heart tells her so –right? Precious! But wait, is that really the case? How many times does the average woman fall in love? I surmise the answer can be derived from intense research of Sex and the City episodes –that’s arguable, perhaps. However, according to new research by the University of Texas at San Antonio, it is hormones that determine how and what kind of man a woman falls for.

Programming, which has developed into its own language, is now the favorite language of women, as more and more women have become interested in mastering it (even more so than French or Mandarin, for instance). Is it a positive sign of the times?

It began with internet/SMS lingo; and LOL was born. New acronyms followed suit (like OMG). Then emerged terms like Java and Python (no, not the place in Indonesia or the snake). Programming has developed into its own language and more and more women have become interested in mastering it (even more so than French or Mandarin, for instance). Is it a positive sign of the times?

Perhaps, women are tech savvy?
