HOT Brands From The 80s & 90s

Remember a time when you’d offer to shake someone’s hand, before quickly retracting it and exclaiming, “Can’t touch this”, M.C. Hammer style? It was also the time when Kris Kross wanted to make you jump (while wearing your baggy pants backwards), and the Spice Girls were telling you what they really wanted. In the 90s, […]

Eat Cake With Your Hands

After my time in Tal’s studio in Israel, our group walked to her house, which was a short stroll away. I laughed so hard over lunch conversations. And wow, dessert was an experience, I can tell you.

A Unique Solution to a Complex Problem: Anti-Bullying Technology
