Need Some Help Adjusting To Daylight Saving Time?
Yes, ladies and gents…it’s the time of year we loathe: turning the clockaheadone hour for daylight saving time. That’s set for tomorrow night, and you’re not alone if you find the shift a challenge.
Experts including sleep specialist Dr.Ofer Jacobowitzsay this weekend can be difficult for many people. Can you “catch up” on that missed sleep? Not exactly, but taking short naps will help.
Dr. Jacobowitz also says spending more time exposed to daylight will help you adjust to the time change because it helps adjust your awake and sleep cycle. He adds getting enough sleep is critical to having good overall health.
Jobs That May Not Exist In The Future
You might thing your job is safe from being taken over by robots in the next ten years, but you could also be wrong. If they’re making robots that are so human-like that you can have sex with them, what else are they going to manufacture? Hopefully something actually useful, but who’s to say? Here are the jobs that could be phased out in the future:
- Fast food workers
- Retail jewelers
- Mail carriers
- Meter readers
- Travel agents (those still exist??)
A lot of these jobs are less popular for better reasons than just a robot takeover. Like lumberjacks, for example – we’re using less paper which means we’re cutting down less trees on the whole. Some of these jobs we should probably just leave to the humans, no? How are people going to make a living?
You'll Soon Be Able To Rent Home Goods
As if we didn’t already loveRent the Runwayfor all of the clothes we could wear without committing to, there’s now an even bigger reason to jump on board. Aside from a handful of us, we’re all living in apartments. That means that when it comes time to jump to a new place, we often find ourselves letting go of some of the home goods we had lying around.
Rent the Runway has partnered with West Elm to give you temporary access to a slew of blankets, pillows, and bedding. Bored of something? Send it back! The idea is that once you’re a subscriber, you can choose from 26 bundles of pillows, throws, shams, quilts, and coverlets that come in all different styles.
It works the same way as it does with the clothes you might get. If you get something you really love, you can hang onto it for a while. But the second it’s time for a change, you can send it back and get a new set. If you REALLY love something and want to buy it, you can purchase it at a discounted rate…a little different from the dresses you might get that you HAVE to send back.
So if you get as bored with your living room as you do with your outfits, this could be the move for you. There’s nothing like changing things up a little to make you feel like a new human!

Couple Finally Weds after Woman Rejected Proposal for 43 Years
Though Pauline Young, age 72, had continuously rejected marriage proposals from her longtime beau Colin Jones, age 74, the woman recently changed her tune — and asked her boyfriend of 43 years to marry her.
“When Pauline asked me, I almost fell off the bed,” Jones told Yahoo Lifestyle of the life-changing question, which she popped in December 2018. “I’d been asking her all this time so now she was asking me, I said, ‘Of course I will.’”
The pair first met in 1976 at a playgroup for their kids, Metro reports. Both were previously married and had five children between them.
The partners in life also spent much of their careers as partners in business. The lovebirds ran a cabinet-making business in Wales for 30 years, before relocating to Malta 14 years ago to run a bed and breakfast, Yahoo reports.
Three years ago, Young moved to a nursing home in Telford, England, in relation to her complications with corticobasal degeneration. The rare neurological condition can cause slower movements and stiffness, in addition to cognitive, speech and language difficulties, as per Mayo Clinic.
Despite challenges, Jones didn’t let the diagnosis affect their relationship — the dedicated partner continued to run the couple’s business in Malta while traveling to visit Young at her care home every two weeks.
During a visit in December, Young surprised Jones as she popped the question — and he, naturally, said yes.
On Feb. 14, the septuagenarians tied the knot at last in a blessing ceremony (which is not legally recognized) at St. George’s Methodist Church in Telford, Yahoo reports. The sweet couple dressed up in their best outfits for the special occasion and Young’s wheelchair was even decorated with flowers.
