Illustrating Equality VS Equity
IISC has long believed that this image, illustrating the difference between equality and equity, is worth a thousand words. As a gift to the world of equity practitioners, IISC engaged artist Angus Maguire to draw a new version of an old favorite (since we could only find pixelated versions of the original).

Amy Schumer's Viral Video Proves Guys Don't Understand Makeup
As a lifetime cosmetics fanatic, I've dated plenty of men who told me that I'd be "so much prettier without makeup." Perhaps you're familiar with this patronizing refrain. The best part is the commentary from these same guys when I skip several steps of my beauty routine. "Are you sick? You look so pale." "What's wrong with your eyelids? I can see all these little veins." (I no longer have any of these gents' phone numbers, obviously.) I've come to accept that guys just do not underst

These Jewish Hipster Tees Are So Hilarious, They'll Have You Shvitzing
Rocking a band t-shirt when you don't actually listen to the music you're repping? Risky move, my friend. But these Unkosher Market tees, created by LA-based duo Alice and Shiran, are not at all like that. Sure, they've all got phrases those who practice Judaism would pick up on, but you don't have to be religious to think they're funny. Anyone who's up to date on pop culture would immediately recognize "Shvitz It Out" as a play on Taylor's Swift's "Shake It Off." And making a statement like "M

Germany opens the first 3 miles of a 60-mile bicycle superhighway
Move over, bike lanes. Move wayyyy over. Germany put its pedals where its mouth is and opened its first bicycle-only highway, a three-mile stretch of protected roadway that is closed to cars and other motor vehicles. Unlike a traditional bike lane, which is separated only by paint on the asphalt, a bicycle highway is an entirely separate roadway where cyclists can zoom along on their merry way without worrying about car traffic at all. Germany’s bicycle highway is just getting sta

Why It's Time to Celebrate Average-Size Women

US sizes are approximately UK minus 4 (e.g., UK 14 = US 10). Source: Getty / Karwai Tang Some have suggested that 2014 was "the year of plus-size."

80 Outfits to Try When You
If you've ever promised yourself you'd wake up early only to snooze five different alarms and stumble out of bed last minute, we feel you. Waking up can be rough - but not quite as rough as getting dressed on mornings like these. Nothing looks right (were you insane when you bought that top?!), clothes are everywhere, and you're about a nanosecond away from sobbing and pretending you're sick. ("Sorry, can't adult today.") But rather than give up, what you need is a little direction. The key is

25 Photos That Will Convince You to Go Modest on Your Wedding Day
When we first spotted Nicky Hilton on her wedding day, our jaws nearly fell to the ground. Gone was the revealing white number she wore mere days before, when she accidentally flashed a crowd at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. And in its place? A long, lacy Valentino gown, which one could perfectly describe as "classic" and, above all, "modest." All of a sudden, our minds went wild. We knew Nicky wasn't the only bride who could pull off this style, so we did a little Insta digging - and found

Ancient seeds sprout after lying dormant for 850 years
After sitting in a clay pot for eight hundred and fifty years, ancient squash seeds are ready to sprout. In 2008, archaeologists uncovered a seed ball, sculpted clay used to store seeds, at a dig site on the Menominee reservation near Green Bay, Wisconsin. Within this seed ball, seeds from a previously unknown variety of squash were found. Squash growing pioneers successfully germinated these ancient seeds and produced the first Gete-okosomin squash crop in centuries. The seeds of this squash ar

I Dressed Like Taylor Swift For a Week - and These Were the Results
To say I'm a Taylor Swift fan might be putting it mildly: her tunes have helped me through plenty of heartbreaks, I'm currently kinda POed at Katy Perry, and I consider the night my nosebleed concert seats were upgraded - for free! - to the stage's pit area one of the best times of my life. But another thing I admire about this leader of the fiercest girl group ever? Her ability to pull off a plethora of different styles, from cutout jumpsuits to feminine day dresses. So when I realized that my

A Camera Mounted to a Potter’s Wheel Puts Ceramics in a Dizzying New Perspective
Watching a ceramist work at a potter’s wheel is a mesmerizing and nearly meditative process as the wet clay slowly morphs into shape, spinning so quickly it loses definition almost completely.

1 Woman Wore the Naked Dress IRL, and This Is What She Learned
In a single night, celebrities like Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian ushered in a new era of red carpet dressing with sheer gowns we quickly dubbed "the naked dress." Since the Met Gala, the term has become a steady part of the fashion vernacular, referring to a sheer dress, embroidered or bedazzled just enough to create some semblance of modesty while revealing just about everything else. As with most trends in fashion, editors quickly became immune to the trend. It didn't seem as shocking as it did
