Back-to-the-office never felt this at home

If you're back in the office, your desk needs this touch of WFH.

Back-to-the-office never felt this at home

Back to work? This product will make you feel like you *almost* never left your living room. Ok, it will at least let you bring some of your family and friends with you... without having to organize guest parking for the entire crew. Because what looks like a classic picture frame is actually so much more. Here's how it works:

This Skylight Frame is a digital picture frame! If you're not sure what that means, think photo screensaver that's constantly being updated. And it's beyond easy to send pictures too, so there's never a hassle of having to update it or plug it in to download new photos.

The frame is a touch screen so you can easily connect to WiFi just like you would with any other device. Then, you can create your own unique Skylight email address for the frame. After that you can forward your favorite pics and the frame will almost instantly add those photos into the queue. It can surprise you with its own slide show settings (think shuffle) or you can select an order (think newest to oldest) for your slideshow. This feature is really the best part about this digital frame, because it's always showing something new.

And because you can give out the email address to your friends and family and they can also send you pictures on their own! That way the photo album will continue to update with all of the best adventures and you can be treated to a surprise while you're at your desk... just as long as the surprises are all work appropriate.

That being said, this frame really is better when shared. It has tons of cool features, like a small heart that you can click to "like" a photo and let whoever sent it to you know that it made your day a little brighter. You can also pause the slide show at any time and hold on one picture for a few minutes or the whole day. This feature is especially handy if you're going to a meeting or heading away from your desk.

There are other settings that allow you to control the flow and display of the slideshow. It's complete customizable and there are tons of new features to explore. It's almost like being on social media, but instead of being flooded with photos of people you went to high school with, you only get the best, silliest, happiest photos from people you love.

But, if you're going for a more posh aesthetic or if you want the frame to showcase your vision board, that's also totally doable. You can self-curate slide shows or limit the amount of photos displayed. Because of the simple features and easy to use touchscreen, this frame is an easy addition for your desk. And it just might soften the blow of being back in the office... even if it's just a little bit.

Check it out now, and see what all the hype's about.

A sad-looking Labrador Retriever

The sweet-faced, loveable Labrador Retriever is no longer America’s favorite dog breed. The breed best known for having a heart of gold has been replaced by the smaller, more urban-friendly French Bulldog.

According to the American Kennel Club, for the past 31 years, the Labrador Retriever was America’s favorite dog, but it was eclipsed in 2022 by the Frenchie. The rankings are based on nearly 716,500 dogs newly registered in 2022, of which about 1 in 7 were Frenchies. Around 108,000 French Bulldogs were recorded in the U.S. in 2022, surpassing Labrador Retrievers by over 21,000.

Loneliness is one of the most dangerous health problems in the United States, although it’s seldom discussed. Psychology Today says loneliness has the same mortality risks as obesity, smoking, alcoholism and physical inactivity.

A meta-analysis from Brigham Young University found that social isolation may increase the risk of premature death by up to 50%. The problem with loneliness is that people suffer in silence and it afflicts the ones we don’t see.

A TikTok user who goes by the name Megan Elizabeth recently shared a touching story on social media about how her grandfather was feeling lonely so he reached out to her. The story shows what can happen when one person is brave enough to confront their social isolation and the important role grandkids can play in their grandparents’ lives.

Over 5,600 people commented on the story, and an overwhelming majority thought the mother was right. Here’s what went down:

“I (34F) have a (5M) son who attends preschool. A few hours after I picked him up from school today, I got a phone call from his teacher,” Flowergardens0 wrote. “She made absolutely no effort to sound kind when she, in an extremely rude and annoyed tone, told me to stop packing my son such ‘disgusting and inappropriate’ lunches."

Jason K. Pargin shares his controversial theory on lobster.

Novelist Jason K. Pargin has inspired an online food fight after his video about lobster received over 500,000 views on Tiktok and nearly 6 million on Twitter. Pargin believes that we’ve all been tricked into liking lobster and that people only like it because it’s considered high class.

Pargin is the author of the “John Dies at the End” and “Zoey Ashe” series and the former editor of Cracked.com.

"I don't think anyone actually enjoys eating lobster. I think they've just been convinced that it's a high-class food for a really specific reason,” Pargin says in his controversial video. He then describes how just a few centuries ago lobster was once used as prisoners' food and ground into fertilizer.

This 1940s guide on 'how to be pretty' for teen girls has some surprisingly modern suggestions

In a resurfaced video from the 1940s, Mary Stuyvesant, a Ponds beauty consultant, spoke to a group of high school girls about "how to be pretty."

1940s guide on "how to be pretty" is surprisingly modern.

Often, when we think of the 1940s and the messaging that was sent to women and girls back then, we tend to imagine lessons about how to get and keep a husband. But it turns out that all messaging wasn't the same and some girls were receiving a much more progressive message about their appearance.

In a resurfaced video from the 1940s, Mary Stuyvesant, a Ponds beauty consultant, spoke to a group of high school girls about "how to be pretty." Surprisingly, the advice is rather timeless and not at all focused on becoming the best wife and mother you can be, but on learning to care for yourself. Stuyvesant refers to your physical appearance as icing on a cake and that good icing tastes nice but the cake is the most important part.

She goes on to explain to the girls that who they are as people is the cake and that's the part that needs the most attention.

Weatherman rescues a chicken in a blizzard and now they're friends.

There's a little-known saying that every weatherman needs a chicken. OK, it's little known because I totally just made it up, but you have to admit, it's just random enough to make you wonder if you missed out on a weird colloquialism. But in this case, it may be a new saying because weatherman David Neal found a stray chicken while reporting on a blizzard, and they've somehow become best friends.

The chicken, now named Penelope, was running around in the snowstorm while Neal was filming, so he tried to catch her so he could make sure she was warm. Penelope had other plans and gave Neal a literal run for his money. Eventually, with the help of a bystander who was likely as confused as the chicken, Neal was able to get Penny in his arms.

Of course, he had some explaining to do once the cameras were rolling again, and he handled it like the pro he is, holding a live chicken.
