As states lift their stay-at-home orders after months of quarantine, more and more people are beginning to venture out. But they aren’t just heading to the grocery store or the gym—some people are starting to travel again, as well.

Not only are airports, airlines, and other public transportation companies instituting new rules and cleaning procedures, but travelers themselves must also be prepared with the right essentials to stay safe and prevent any further spread of the virus. 

If you have plans to travel in the near future, we’ve rounded up 12 things to help you stay

Everything you need to create a movie is right in your pocket. Yup, we’re talking about your smartphone. Considering how today’s devices boast complex photography capabilities, it’s not surprising that there is a growing list of films that are partly or entirely shot on phones.

Just take Searching for Sugar Man, for example. Directed by Malik Bendjelloul, it’s a documentary that clinched an Oscar despite being filmed using an 8mm camera and an iPhone app. If all these hotshot filmmakers can do it, why can’t you?

But filming footage and editing it are entirely different processes. It may be easy to shoot, but stringing together your clips to create a masterpiece is much more

In the Sneaker Market, Consumer Experience and Brand Confidence Are Essential for Online Success

Emilee Geist

The sneaker market has seen exciting growth during 2020, resisting the slump in sales that has hit other retail categories during the pandemic. But capitalizing on this growing segment has required brands and retailers to innovate and adapt to a new consumer. On the second day of FN’s first virtual summit, “The Way Ahead,” three industry leaders shared their thoughts on how to serve this consumer in today’s retail landscape.

Moderated by FN senior outdoor and athletic editor Peter Verry, today’s “The New Consumer” discussion featured Jaime Kingston, commercial lead at Klarna; Damien Leigh, senior VP of global direct to consumer at New Balance; and Tom Woodger, VP of cultural marketing at StockX. The conversation and broader summit were sponsored by Klarna and held in partnership with FFANY, FDRA and Two Ten.

Online dating is great — it’s like window shopping for a date! — but there’s a slight shudder factor attached to the practice now that everyone and their mother (literally) has some sort of profile. The biggest advantage, obviously, is the potential to meet thousands of eligible singles who you likely wouldn’t have known existed otherwise. But whether those singles use their profile regularly or are even on it for the right reasons is another question — thus, the terrifying edge that can cause singles genuinely searching for the real thing to shy away from such a valuable tool.

When the dating pool is so deep, it’s important to narrow down your options to dating sites that are most likely to attract a very specific type of person and introduce

13 Eco-Friendly Masks That Are Kinder On Faces & The Planet

Emilee Geist

Although wearing a face mask in public is the responsible decision during a global pandemic, let’s not allow the need for such a precaution to overshadow our eco-conscious judgments when deciding what type of non-medical covering to buy. As discarded single-use face masks pile up on beaches and nature trails, the environmental threat posed by these COVID-19 essentials is a fast-growing concern. Luckily, there are sustainable-style alternatives to help curb the impact of this issue — and if your current face covering (fashion-forward or otherwise) is washable and reusable, then you’re already on the right track.

Things like breathability and personal expression matter when picking out a mask that’s best suited to our particular lifestyles (and faces) — but it’s also important to consider how a mask is made, what materials it’s crafted from, and, ultimately, what impact that has on the environment. By paying attention to the fabrics and

Lockdown has encouraged some of us to get a little more creative in the kitchen; whether we’re rustling up mouth-watering feasts or baking sweet banana bread.

However, even with our newfound culinary interest, there is still one aspect of cooking we find tiresome: meal prep.

Peeling, chopping and dicing often feels like it takes a lifetime to complete. Plus, it leaves our fingers sore and achey.

However, there are plenty of nifty gadgets available to take the stress out of this chore, and we have Tik Tok to thank for helping us discover them.

Schools seeking alternative to remote learning move classes outside

Emilee Geist

DETROIT — With just days to go before the start of the new academic year, schools around the country are rushing to gather materials they never thought they would need: plexiglass dividers, piles of masks and internet hot spots to connect with students remotely.

And then there are schools that have an even more unusual list.

The Detroit Waldorf School in Michigan is buying carriage bolts, berry bushes and 8,000 square feet of cedar wood.

The San Francisco Unified School District has been busy gathering tree stumps.

And the Five Town Community School District in Maine is buying tents, yurts and enough all-weather snowsuits for each of its elementary school students.

These schools and districts are all laying the groundwork to move at least some instruction to outdoor classrooms. They’re making a bet that the lower risk of disease transmission in the open air, and the extra space outside for

Whether it’s Christmas, your birthday or the annual celebration of love and libido, Valentine’s Day, buying a new set of lingerie doesn’t require a special occasion.

And now, thanks to the industry’s ever-expanding offering of bras and knickers, getting fancy undies doesn’t have to be all about provocation either.

While many associate lingerie with those in the first flushes of romance, most women are doing it for themselves and investing in well-fitting underwear that makes them feel empowered

Sure, we all have our favourite undies and bras – that probably don’t even match – but investing in a new set of lingerie can feel like a true indulgence, whether you’re single, in a long-term relationship, or somewhere in-between, it doesn’t matter.
