Why all this STEM hype?

I remember my sheer excitement when I was invited to one of the first computer classes at my elementary school. I felt as though the world of technology opened up to me, and I think those early days of computing really inspired my future in technology. Since I was afforded that experience as a child, today I am a big supporter of encouraging the next generation of girls into STEM professions.

Beautyrest Black Hybrid Reveal

The “most important tech reveal of 2017” combines luxury with technology, all within the showroom of everyday life.  Allow me to introduce the Beautyrest Black® Hybrid mattress.  I can tell you that for me, the experience of laying on this mattress was nothing short of an escape to luxury.  When you lie down, you feel the comfort of  the memory foam layers and support of the advanced coil construction. It’s a “wow” experience of what a bed should feel like at a luxury spa, but the best part is that it’s available for your own personal bedroom.

Sleep Smarter to Enhance Your Lifestyle

I cover a lot of crazy and over-the-top items when it comes to technology, so sometimes I forget that tech can also enhance our overall quality of life. We all love that companies are churning out the next big thing in innovation almost every day, but what about the technology that we can’t see? Ironically, there is a movement right now driven by companies and products aiming to educate us on just that.

Why you need to understand your credit score

I could not believe it when my sister, Emily, told me that she wanted to buy her first home. I remember when we used to play with our Barbie Dreamhouse and build forts together in the backyard! I was so excited for her, as this is such a major life milestone, but when she started explaining the financial process, I realized I had no idea how competitive the housing market is and how important it is to have a strong line of credit.

The Parallels Between 'The Man in the High Castle' and Today's Political Climate Are Impossible to Ignore

The Man In The High Castle, Amazon’s ambitious adaptation of the Philip K. Dick novel, has already attracted more than its fair share of controversy. The show first found itself embroiled in scandal when it plastered the New York City subway system with Nazi imagery, and then Amazon abruptly parted ways with its creator and Season 1 showrunner Frank Spotnitz midway through the filming of the show’s second season. However, the show and its primary cast members —Alexa Davalos, Rufus Sewell, DJ Qualls and Brennan Brown— were received with rapturous applause when they appeared earlier today at New York Comic Con.

Fake Psychic, Real Visions: Talking With the Cast of Hulu's 'Shut Eye'

Every city, no matter how big or how small, has its fair share of psychics. Sometimes they operate out of storefronts, sometimes from an individual’s residence. Well, have you ever wondered what goes on behind those closed curtains? The screenwriter Les Bohem certainly did, so he wandered into one. He came out not with a fortune but, rather, an idea for a television show.

New York Comic Con 2016: It's the Final Chapter for the 'Resident Evil' Franchise

The streets of Hollywood are littered with the detritus of big budget video game adaptations that have failed to get film franchises off the ground: Prince Of Persia, Warcraft, Doom, Max Payne … we could go on and on. This is why it’s so surprising to hear that the Resident Evilfranchise is voluntarily coming to an end in 2017 when Resident Evil: The Final Chapter hits theaters. Since its theatrical debut in 2002, the series has spawned a total of six films and grossed well over $1 billion in worldwide box office, making it the most successful film series of its kind.
