Southwest Pilot: Cool and Heroic Under Pressure

“Nerves of steel”: That’s the phrase no one can avoid when talking about Tammie Jo Shults, 56, the amazing Texan who somehow landed Southwest Airlines flight 1380 after one of the engines failed. Tragically, one life was lost, but Shults is being applauded for staying calm and bringing the 737 to a safe landing.

Female Farmers: From Harvest to Halls of Power

It’s really the oldest profession in the world—farming—and women have been doing it forever. Now, female farmers are taking their know-how and compassion to rural campaign trails. These women simultaneously shoulder the responsibility of feeding the nation and making it all work on super-slim margins. Who better to tackle thorny policies and serve as champions for small towns, the conservation of natural resources and rural success?

The Brilliance of One-Piece Yoga Gear

And you thought onesies were just for babies!

That all-in-one fashion garment is baaaaack — and in a big way. It may seem like a redux of that 80s catsuit (remember, worn with heels and maybe a boxy man’s style jacket with sleeves pushed up?). Its return is a hot trend for workout rats, especially those hitting the yoga mat.

10 Reasons Why I Don’t Have a Smartphone

My cell phone (basically, a metal candy bar — perhaps you owned a similar one in 1999) doesn’t have a camera, apps, or a soothing, competent voice of its own. It can make and receive phone calls, but only occasionally because it gets really crappy service. (I’m told that’s due to my service provider, not the phone itself).

NextTribe Finding Your Feet

New Movie We Love: “Finding Your Feet”

The movie Finding Your Feet isn’t going to shock or surprise you. Here’s the plot: Somewhat stuffy midlife woman discovers husband is having an affair and embarks on new life that loosens her up.

We all enjoy a leisurely spring ride through the park, and some of us are serious mountain bikers. But when it comes to cycling for transportation, we often stop short, even though many cities are becoming more bike-friendly. Which is too bad because cycling easily burns about 50 calories per mile, earns health benefits, and talk about reducing your impact on the planet — it’s as carbon-efficient as you can get! Angela Azzolino founded the organization Get Women Cycling to educate and motivate cyclists to get out there safely, one two-wheeler at a time. Her top tips:
