The kittens who activated a vacuum cleaner.
The dog who got winter figured out.

If you’re stuck indoors due to a massive snowstorm or just because it’s cold as heck, you should know that Netflix has added a bunch of wonderful films to its instant streaming selections. Here are some of the best to add to your queue for the post-holiday blues.
Cutie and the Boxer (2013)
Directed by: Zachary Heinzerling.
About: Ushio and Noriko Shinohara, two struggling artists in an unusual, charged, and charming marriage.
Typical review: "A movie that makes you feel less like a spectator than a guest, a friend welcomed into the home of an odd and fascinating couple." —A.O. Scott, The New York Times.
Good if you like: Bill Cunningham New York, the comics section of the paper, Exit Through The Gift Shop, pigtails.
The Thing Called Love (1993)
Directed by: Peter Bogdanovich.
Starring: River Phoenix (in his last film), Samatha Mathis, a young Sandra Bullock, plus a bunch of awesome '90s country stars like Pam Tillis and Jimmie Dale Gilmore.
What it's about: An aspiring country singer hits Nashville and finds love (x2) and a little less musical success. Seeing Mathis fall in love with Phoenix IRL captured on film is both sweet and heartbreaking.
Good if you like: Country radio, Crazy Heart, and pearl snap-up dress shirts.
The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961–1965)
Created by: Carl Reiner.
Starring: Dick Van Dyke himself, Mary Tyler Moore, Mary Tyler Moore's capri pants.
What's it about: This classic '60s family and workplace sitcom in one is known for "bringing sex to TV." The greatest joy of the edgy-at-the-time series is still in the chemistry, ease, and delight that Mary Tyler Moore and Dick Van Dyke, as Laura and Rob Petrie, brought to their roles as a young married couple.
Good if you like: Lucille Ball, The Cosby Show, Zooey Deschanel, pretty dresses.
CBS / Viacom
Directed by: Brian Dannelly
Starring: Jena Malone, Macaulay Culkin, Susan Sarandon's daughter (Eva Amurri Martino), the kid from Almost Famous who got foxy (Patrick Fugit), and MANDY MOORE.
What it's about: A totally underrated satire with a heart of gold, Saved! tells the story of Mary, a senior at a super-religious school, who becomes pregnant by her gay boyfriend and has to cope with the escalating judgment that follows.
Good if you like: making fun of things but then hugging it out afterward, cute romantic gestures, Mean Girls.
Here’s an easy resolution: This stuff is all free as long as you have access to a computer, and the skills you learn will be invaluable in your career, and/or life in general.
Become awesome at Excel.
Chandoo is one of many gracious Excel experts who wants to share their knowledge with the world. Excel excellence is one of those skills that will improve your chances of getting a good job instantly, and it will continue to prove invaluable over the course of your career. What are you waiting for?
Learn how to code.
Perhaps no other skill you can learn for free online has as much potential to lead to a lucrative career. Want to build a site for your startup? Want to build the next big app? Want to get hired at a place like BuzzFeed? You should learn to code. There are a lot of places that offer free or cheap online coding tutorials, but I recommend Code Academy for their breadth and innovative program. If you want to try a more traditional route, Harvard offers its excellent Introduction to Computer Science course online for free.
Make a dynamic website.
You could use a pre-existing template or blogging service, or you could learn Ruby on Rails and probably change your life forever. Here's an extremely helpful long list of free Ruby learning tools that includes everything from Rails for Zombies to Learn Ruby The Hard Way. Go! Ruby! Some basic programming experience, like one of the courses above, might be helpful (but not necessarily required if you're patient with yourself).

Of course there are wonderful and terrible bosses of both genders, but as surveys still show that workers of both genders prefer a male boss , it might be time to look at the science of female bosses. Spoiler alert: They rule!
Some have concluded that women's brains are wired for making connections, listening and remembering, and intuition.
Studies mapping brains show that women's left and right brains are highly connected, making them better equipped for multitasking and combining/connecting "logical thinking" with "intuitive thinking." It's worth noting that these studies can't definitively predict behavior.

Women are great communicators.
"Women are stronger communicators and better connectors than men," said Jay Forte in the New York Daily News, "and they're more astute about knowing how to activate passion in their employees. They watch the 43 muscles in your face and see how your emotions change."
Women are also significantly more likely than men to talk to their friends and family about their problems and stress, meaning they bring fewer of those problems to the workplace.

In a town of fewer than 2,000 people, Taylor’s class of 1920 seems to have had a pretty good year.

The yearbook is packed with sincerity, and the fun that the class of 1920 had together in "the happiest days of [their] lives" shines through.
