  • A massive herd of elk was recently spotted crossing a road in Bozeman, MT near Yellowstone National Park. The hundreds-strong herd continued their journey on the other side… save for one lone elk, who couldn't seem to figure out how to hop the fence.

    Some Good (human) Samaritans pulled to the side of the road, wanting to help the animal jump the fence so he could catch up with his herd, but their kindness wasn't necessary. Finding no other way around his barrier, the little guy eventually mustered up the strength and made a glorious leap to the other side!

    If that weren't heartwarming enough, a group of his fellow elk hung in the back of the herd, waiting for any stragglers. Too cute!

    We're glad his buddies didn't give up on him, and that he didn't give up on himself.

  • How to track sales online.

    While flash sales sites like Gilt Groupe have built their user base on the adrenaline of an amazing, unexpected discount, sometimes what you really want is a tool to tell you when an item you actually want has gone on sale. Fortunately, more and more startups are working to facilitate that, one of the best-known examples being Hukkster.

    The latest to launch is Shoptagr (pronounced: "Shop tagger"), which went live Tuesday. While not a flat-out copycat, the combination of its user experience and initial features make it eerily similar to Hukkster's product. So let's take a look through the landscape of sales alert tools to parse who's doing what.


    Those deep into online shopping (no judgment) are likely familiar with Hukkster at this point, since the startup launched in 2012 and has raised $4.5 million in venture capital funding to date. For those who haven't used it, Hukkster functions as a bookmarklet that sits in your browser; every time you happen upon a product

    Best applicator-free blushes.More and more frequently I find myself reaching for makeup that doesn't require brushes, applicators, sponges or well, skill, to apply. Luckily for me and my new laissez-faire application attitude, three new spring blush launches fit perfectly into this category. They're all portable, easy to use, and have some innovative new qualities.

    Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Blush, $52: Armani's Maestro foundation is a favorite of beauty insiders everywhere because it somehow disappears into your skin while simultaneously making you look flawless. The brand has now taken that same premise and applied it to blush. The new Maestro Fusion Blush, which is packaged in a bottle with a dropper, comes in three colors -- peach (300), dark pink (400), and coral (500--this is the most universally flattering of the three). Yes, it's pricey, but this blush will last you a long time, because you only need one single dot on each cheek; it's pretty concentrated. When you first

    By Cynthia Sass, MPH, RD

    For many of my clients, going out to eat feels like a mini vacation where anything goes and healthy eating goals fall by the wayside. Trouble is, many are dining out more often and the effects of those splurge meals snowball, leading to weight gain or preventing weight loss. According to one recent study, a single meal at a sit-down restaurant can pack nearly a day's worth of calories, and meals consumed away from home are higher in unhealthy fats and sodium and lower in filling fiber. But restaurant meals don't have to be dietary disasters. These 7 savvy tricks can help you enjoy dining away from home without going overboard.
