NextTribe collagen clothing

We’re all for technical innovation, and we’re for keeping our skin looking and feeling great as the years pass. But we’re not so sure if we need clothing infused with collagen, which is an important building block of skin, bones and fascia in our bodies.

Women Who Make More Than Their Husbands Often Lie About It—But Why? | NextTribe

Women Who Make More Than Their Husbands Often Lie About It—But Why?

The wage gap is alive and well, as you probably know, with women typically earning about 80 cents to every dollar that men do. (The shortfall is even steeper for women of color.) What’s more, the World Economic Forum forecasts that it will take 217 years to truly reach pay parity.

Age Discrimination In the Workplace: Getting Hired Is Harder Than Ever | NextTribe

Getting Hired Is Getting Harder—And It’s Mostly Thanks to Good Ol’ Fashioned Age Discrimination

Whether by choice or necessity, there’s no doubt we are working longer. Over the past 25 years, workers over age 55 have gone from 12 percent of the labor force to today’s 24 percent, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. But before you let out a Yass! or initiate a fist-pump, consider this: A just-released EEOC study says that reports of age discrimination rising sharply, too.

Meal Kits: What You Lose When You Use Them

Back in the day, when our moms didn’t have much time to cook, they grabbed a box of Hamburger Helper and — boom! — dinner was served. Times sure have changed thanks to the likes of Plated, Blue Apron and Sun Basket— meal kits offering all kinds of flavorful dishes. Several of my friends are converts, saying they want to avoid the time spent at the supermarket or get introduced to new tastes and techniques. But to me, these convenient culinary crash-courses come at the price of two essential cooking components: creativity and ingenuity.

Age Discrimination On a New Level: British Bankers Age-Shame Us | NextTribe

When British Bankers Age-Shame Us

The British are so often portrayed in the media as having sophisticated, spot-on vocabularies. Bank of England’s Deputy Governor Ben Broadbent, not so much. He felt moved to describe the UK economy as “menopausal,” meaning past its peak, in a recent interview with The Daily Telegraph. Excuse us — age discrimination much?

NextTribe no smartphone

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). Why do I insist on living in the past? Let me count the ways!

NextTribe scrunchie comeback

The Terrible Return of the Scrunchie!

All apologies to Ruth Bader Ginsburg who never gave them up, but when I saw that scrunchies were back, I felt squeamish. It’s hard to believe that the most brilliant minds in fashion and beauty can’t come up with a non-damaging hair-holder better than that poufy 80s eyesore.

Next Tribe judge aquilina backlash

The Judge Aquilina Backlash: How Can Anyone Criticize Our Hero?

How many of us cheered inwardly or actually jumped up and down when we heard Judge Rosemary Aquilina sentence Larry Nasser, the former doctor for the Olympic gymnastics doctor? Who thought anyone could find fault with her strong words to a creep convicted of serial sexual molestation of young girls?

Guess what? There are reports of a backlash against the judge for “grandstanding.”
