Even better, many of these foods are ripe and in-season now. Here are nine of the best winter foods for your skin.

Here are this weekend’s reading diversions. Happy Holiday Weekend and a very Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Giving gifts to others is a fundamental activity, as old as humanity itself. Yet in the modern, complex world, the particulars of gift-giving can be extraordinarily challenging. In my view, the best gift is one that benefits both the receiver and the planet. So let me propose three categories of gifts for this holiday season that I believe meet this standard.
Tis the season when the days grow short, the wind blows fierce, and sleet-covered streets discourage that early morning jog.
All dogs can interact well with children, especially if they’re introduced as puppies to a home where children are already underfoot, says pet expert Marc Morrone. Still, many breeds have proven over the years to be particularly gentle and accepting of children in the household. To create this list, we turned to the World Atlas of Dog Breeds, 6th Edition, which rates breeds for their compatibility with children.

When I was just six years old, I came home from school alone while my parents were away working long hours. Every afternoon, like so many children still do, I turned on the TV and got lost for three hours a day. It was my virtual babysitter. I watched re-runs of sitcom classics like Good Times and Three’s Company, although hardly shows that a 6 year-old kid could relate to.
Whether it’s family, work, relationships, or friends, we all deal with difficult people in different ways. Holidays often extract the most trying characteristics out of everyone. I recently became “adopted” by my new “yoga/God parents” Ed and Deb Shapiro. (Don’t worry paternal family, I still love you guys. . . there is room for it all in this life!) Anyway, Ed and Deb help me put things in perspective, and realize when I’m wasting my energy fixating on certain things. Plus, they gush about how proud they are of me. It’s adorable and sweet, and if I can be in the moment and absorb what is happening, it’s powerful jet fuel for my life and soul.
With India now having a strong global business presence, which is expanding continuously, it is crucial that as UK business professionals, we are aware of how to behave and interact appropriately with fellow business professionals from this continent.
‘Tis the season for gift-giving and spreading holiday cheer. But how many times have you -
1) received a gift you just don’t need, or
2) given a gift that’s destined to never be used or appreciated?
Winter holidays bring traditions from at least half a dozen world cultures, blended over the centuries. Here are a few reasons some herbal allies have a place in our homes this time of year.
The contradictory messages and assumptions for women, of every age, clearly affect female friendships, perhaps today more than ever before. In our slick, speedy society, women aren’t always certain of where these friendships fit into their lives, while at the same time, the desire for successful bonds and close connections is at an all time high.
