Slow cookers are a must-have appliance for anyone with a kitchen. Also known as a right of passage to being a grown-ass adult who has their life together — or at the very least, makes you look like you do.
Whether you've been on your own for 20 years and have kids, just graduated college, or hell, are still in college, you know the struggle of being too busy to cook a nice meal. (If you're a parent, this struggle is multiplied.) "Mmm, another frozen meal," said no one ever. Don't you just wish someone could have dinner ready at your beck and call? Is that really too much to ask?
Nope — not with a slow cooker. These workhorses can save you some serious stress about what to make every night, not to mention cut back on the amount of time you spend in the kitchen, as they require about five minutes of prep from you while they do the rest. Plus, whether you're meal prepping or saving leftovers, it's a lot less expensive than eating out all the time. Read more...More about Food, Cooking, Kitchen, Mashable Shopping, and Shopping Amazon
Sometimes the best way to understand the world around us is to stop and pick up a book.
That's certainly true of race and power in America. Whether it's through thoughtful essays, gripping fiction, or haunting poems, contemporary black authors have been publishing a number of books that are shaping our conversations about race for readers of all ages.
Some books tackle larger issues like mass incarceration and police violence. Others offer intimate portraits of individual characters to showcase the world as experienced through different perspectives. But no matter the scope, black writers are using literature as a way to explore race and the effects of racism on the world around us.

Good news everyone. Abe Lincoln is hot.
At least this statue of him is. A rock-hard Abraham Lincoln, 16th president of the United States, graces the Los Angeles federal courthouse. The 8-foot-tall young Lincoln, shirtless as can be, gazes down at the viewer in pure, unadulterated horniness. In one hand he carries a book, while the other plays with his waistband, as if he's inviting you to both take off his pants and educate yourself on the intricacies of American democracy.
If an Abercrombie and Fitch model could read, it would be the Hot Abe statue.
Since the dawn of the the show, Jeopardy! has followed basically the same structure. When Alex Trebek appeared on the premiere of the Jeopardy! All Star Games on Wednesday evening and called the affair "a unique event in the 35 year history of Jeopardy! programming," he sure wasn't kidding.
The quiz show decided to shake things up with "a format we have never ever before attempted," according to Trebek, for their first-ever team tournamentJeopardy! brought back all of our favorite, annoying, yet lovable competitors, and completely changed the format we've come know and love.
The typical format of a normal episode of Jeopardy! follows three individual players, and the winner gets to play again the next night. There are three rounds of trivia. The first is Single Jeopardy, where there are six categories each with five questions worth between $200 and $1,000. This is followed by Double Jeopardy which has the same amount of questions but they're worth between $400 and $2,000. Final Jeopardy ends the program and has one question where contestants are able to bet what they've earned in the game so far. The commercial breaks take place half way through Single Jeopardy, after Single Jeopardy, and after Double Jeopardy. Read more...More about Jeopardy, All Star Games, Watercooler, and Web Culture
