An engagement ring is exactly what you think they might be. The bride wears the ring during her engagement to signify her upcoming wedding. Engagement rings used to symbolize the wealth of the man proposing, demonstrating that he had enough money to care for his bride. Obviously that tradition has fallen by the wayside, but engagement rings still continue to get flashier and more expensive. You can read more about diamond carats and prices here. Wedding rings are exchanged by the bride and groom during the wedding ceremony. Both can be worn during the wedding, but a wedding ring is typically worn under the engagement ring. Wedding rings are often plain bands, although they can have diamonds or stones, and are often solid platinum gold, or white gold. They can be gold, tungsten , platinum, titanium, silver, or a variety of other metals.

How America Failed Black Women (Once Again) with #BoycottBlackPanther Hoax

Reality Steve, I have been married for 18 years and we have 4 children. My husband is away for work about days and then home for 2. When he is home, we try to spend some time alone and have a breakfast date or a date night. When we are all just hanging out at home I feel like he pushes me aside. I look forward to the time that he is home and I hate that he spends most of his time outside. He is outdoorsy and I am not.

Go back to the beginning U. Gore in the presidential election. There have been years of demonstrations showing the machines are vulnerable to various attacks. Many voting experts disagree. For starters, the machines must be loaded with candidates — somehow. This is usually done with an election management system. His technique actually has a name: Some of the same machines he hacked 15 years ago are still being used in elections today.

Harri Hursti was the first to figure out how to get into two different kinds of voting machines. But he considers the DRE the most dangerous for our votes.

Shares 19K Yes, I said hoax. On January 2, BlackTwitter lit up with tweets about black women boycotting the Black Panther movie because of the actor is dating Ashlyn Castro. Soon, the gossip sites picked up on the story, and so did the forums. By January 3, the major media publications were spreading the word that the same underestimated force that shut down Roy Moore in Alabama had turned its sights onto the most anticipated movie of the year.

In fact, it was Black Twitter that discovered the shenanigans. Black men fell for troll accounts on Michael B jordan’s instagram acc regarding the imaginary black panther boycott and threw black women under the bus.

The truth that Theo almost died trying to keep to himself. Only when he hit bottom with drugs, sex and gambling could he summon the courage to face what had happened when he was a rising 14 year-old phenom. He talks about his childhood, his hockey career, getting sober and his post-career mission of raising awareness and trying to change outdated sentencing laws that allow sexual predators to continue to abuse in Canada, especially the new documentary about it, Victor Walk.

You didn’t really think we’d say Christmas did you!? Although it is a close second. Because we love talking fantasy football, fantasy football team names and everything else you can imagine, you might find this post at different points in the season. So if it’s already past week 1 of the NFL season, just skip forward to the fantasy football team name part.

We found out we were pregnant and then things changed from there. The blog initially started after we had moved back home to Washington State, and I started my own dessert catering and wedding cake business. And so the blog was my free website. I think the most natural is the recipe development or the idea for the food.

But coming up with the food ideas, I think, comes pretty naturally for me and then also the photography aspect. The writing is the hardest and I think I could have so many more recipes and so many more photos and things like that than I actually share. It just takes so much time, and it takes so much attention. I just value cookbooks in such a different way now.

Serial started a phenomenon in podcasting, that of true crime coverage suddenly becoming not just popular, but valued. For the true crime devotee, here are twenty different kinds of true crime podcasts: Some of these are similar to Serial and S-Town and some are wildly different, both in topic and method, but they are all the kind of true crime podcast that will leave you questioning the human psyche, social relationships, and the legal system.

Vulnerability Porn — from me to you! That meant a night the audience would enjoy and remember and, for me, high enough ticket sales so I could finally fix my sex ed mobile and get back out on the road to teach sex workshops and attend conferences. Photo by Alex Ell from Whoopee! We had a Sunday night show the night after the World Naked Bike Ride , there were record high heats, and it was just Pride Weekend — not easy to compete with those things.

On my actual birthday, I had one of my worst days in recent memory. It started with me being admitted to the hospital with a very painful autoimmune flare-up, and continued to get comically worse, until it ended with both of my dogs puking all over the house. When it rains it pours, and this time it poured vomit. I was pretty ready to give up.

It felt like rock bottom to me after one of the worst years of my life, in which I got divorced, sold my possessions and moved into an RV to travel the country only to have the RV break down on me, was crashed into by a hit and run driver that left me with medical bills and worsened my chronic pain condition, dealt with multiple mental health crises, and had my heart broken again.

But when I told my best friends about my fears and plans, they all told me I was full of shit. They begged me to never be normal, and encouraged me to try a few more things before I gave up on my dreams. However, I love my job and am very passionate about my chosen career. So, I really want to be able to keep teaching, writing, interviewing, and podcasting about sex, relationships, love, and intersectional feminism. I know creating and performing, and vulnerably sharing those parts of myself, will help me heal.

My problem was how to record quality video. I figured out how to do it and now have my own video recording studio. I found other women business owners who wanted to make quality videos.

A podcast about women finding their focus and place in business, art, culture, and life. Sisters, Nicole and Nailah Blades, host this ongoing conversation, sharing women’s compelling stories .

Deeply ashamed and terrified to confront their truth, these lost souls dwell in the shadows. As a culture we perpetuate the cycle of shame by judging those afflicted as weak, even sub-human. This creates a climate of fear and silence, further entrenching a deep sense of self-hatred that drives the addict into a prison of loneliness and despair, isolating that individual from the life-saving solution to their fatal disease.

Towards that end, I give you the story of Amy Dresner. I first came across Amy by way of our mutual friend and record-setting 8-time podcast guest Mishka Shubaly and her recently released memoir, My Fair Junkie: Growing up in Beverly Hills, Amy had it all: Soon, if you could snort it, smoke it, or have sex with, she did. Amy pulls no punches. Her raw honesty is as devastating as it is courageous — perhaps even shocking for those less intimately familiar with the ravishes of addiction.

Today we get into all of it. This is a candid conversation about the dark underbelly of drug abuse, sex addiction, and alcoholism. But between the lines, this is a powerful exchange about courage — the courage to face and ultimately own your truth.
