See The Top 10 Cruise Ship Innovations Of 2013

The year of 2013 was a big one in cruising, showcasing several amazing new ships. Norwegian Cruise Line launched the 4,000-passenger Norwegian Breakaway (the largest ship ever to homeport in New York) and Princess Cruises introduced its first new ship in five years (as well as the line's largest ever), the 3,560-passenger Royal Princess, with royal fanfare — the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) serves as the ship's godmother.

10 Forensic Myths Spread by TV

If you’ve watched enough reruns of shows like CSI, NCIS, Law and Order, and Bones, you probably think you’re pretty well-versed in the science of forensics and crime-solving. Think again.

Top 10 Sea Survivors

I have always been fascinated by people that survived extreme situations. I always wondered how long I would be able to survive if I was lost on a snow-covered mountain or ledge-locked on a cliff or trapped in the middle of the ocean on a raft. The answer is – it depends. It all depends on how prepared you are for the situation, or even how lucky you are. The simplest of things could end up saving your life, like a nail or a piece of string. It was surprising to learn that almost all the people from this list were rescued just in time except, in my opinion, the longest survivors. Thousands of people have been lost at sea, never to be seen or heard from again, but yet, there are a small handful that survive against every odd. One of the basic rules of survival is three hours without shelter, three days without water and three weeks without food. Could you prove this rule wrong?

10 Ways To Improve Yourself While Broke

I'm going to start off by being very honest, I'm currently broke. I was expecting to get a scholarship that I didn't get, went on a trip that I probably shouldn't have gone on, and bought a certain someone special a present I couldn't afford. That's $4k in the hole, and no regrets, but a bit of a mess to clean up after. I'm proactively trying to get myself out of the hole before I start dental school next year (see update). Once I start, I'll be about $70K-$90K in the hole per year, so it won't really matter, but it matters now. My goal is to get my credit card paid off, save up a small emergency fund, and establish a few passive streams of income before school starts and I'm a slave with no spare time.

10 Quirky But Cool Uses of English

The English language is wonderfully bizarre, and sometimes rather frightful. It is a composite of the best and worst that ancient languages have to offer, and native speakers often take it for granted that they can speak it with the utmost fluency. English does have its fair share of problems, however – not least in lexical and semantic ambiguity. This list serves to shed some light on some of the quirks and idiosyncrasies which have made English one of the most widely discussed languages in the world.

5 Awesome Ways Obamacare Can Help a Hipster Out

You’re young. You have no mortgage. You may or may not live in Brooklyn. And the idea of binding yourself to a 9-to-5 job for the rest of your twenties feels rather stifling to your lofty ambition of becoming the next Mark Zuckerberg or blogger-cum-novelist. I can relate. Or, at least my boyfriend can. He recently quit his full-time job to start a little company of his own. It was a ballsy move but totally worth it, he assured me – until he had to pay his first COBRA bill. I can swear I saw a tear roll down his cheek as he signed the $425 check, which he needs more than ever now that he’s gone rogue.

7 Tucked Away City Hotels

It's easy to understand why travelers venture to some of the world's largest cities. They are often packed with gorgeous architecture, delicious food, fabulous art institutions, endless shopping and unparalleled entertainment and nightlife. Yet there are potential downsides to a high density of culture. Bustling metropolises usually attract massive crowds, frustrating traffic and deafening noise. For those looking for some respite, book a room in hotels sequestered away in quieter quadrants of these respective cities. Take two-year-old Hotel da Estrela in Lisbon's Campo de Ourique neighborhood. While most hotels and B&Bs in Portugal's capital are concentrated in buzzier Chiado, Rossio and Bairro Alto, Hotel da Estrela's less-central address offers quiet nights and crowd-free streets—and the city's best restaurants, lounges and shopping are just a 10-minute taxi ride away.

The 6 Biggest Science and Tech Issues Facing Congress This Year

After reaching a new nadir of productivity in 2013, Congress kicked off a legislative session this week with a packed science and technology policy agenda. Between revelations of the NSA’s broad domestic spying powers, ongoing budget uncertainty, and the specter of climate change, plenty of issues will be vying for members’ attention in 2014, promising a flurry of contentious political jockeying going into this year’s midterm elections. Of course, this is Congress that we’re talking about, so it's unlikely that we will see any marquee legislative battles beyond the usual fiscal bickering. After three years of putting science and technology on the back burner, neither party has a clear set of policies, and election-year politics are likely to shape the already limited agenda.
