Current // May 17, 2013You would think the answer to this question would be simple. But thanks to modern day efforts in food science, chicken breasts might have more ingredients than they have ever had before. Just a few weeks ago, my mother posted a very simple question on Facebook. She simply asked, “What’s in my chicken breast?” Her question, while seemingly innocuous, garnered a host of responses. Why? Well,…
Movie Review // May 15, 2013To say I have been waiting for this movie to come out is an understatement. When I heard it was delayed from December to May the stakes became even higher.  I was one of the first to buy tickets to see The Great Gatsby in 3D when it finally premiered, and it was a lot like attending one of Jay Gatsby’s famous parties: loud, glittering…

Water Cooler Convos // April 22, 2013Last Monday, two explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon left three dead and over 170 injured. The rudimentary improvised explosive devices (IEDs) involved were assembled using household pressure cookers packed with nails and metal ball bearings. The impact of the blast knocked many runners out cold. After seeing the plight of the injured, many rushed to the scene to assist victims…
Water Cooler Convos // April 8, 2013 In recent weeks, antagonistic behavior from North Korea’s new leader, Kim Jong-un, has threatened to undo the truce held between the United Nations (UN) and the small country since the Korean War ended in 1953. North Korea has performed three unsanctioned missile tests in the past few months. And, in response to sanctions from the United Nations Security Council, they have threatened to lethally…
Letter from our Assistant Editor & Social Media Manager, Amanda Szalasny -- April 8, 2013I still remember when Made Woman's Editor-In-Chief, Serena Watson, asked if she could take me to lunch and discuss her new project with me.

TV Recap // March 19, 2013One of the reasons I love Girls is because it's not your typical "girls show." I keep watching because it's bold, because of Lena Dunham's unwillingness to cover her boobs, and because it tends to be the antithesis of this season's finale, "Together," which tidily wrapped up a messy season.  The first half of the episode was full of the drama that I’ve grown to…
On Friday, March 1, a term called “sequestration” became very important outside of the Washington, D.C., Beltway. It had been uttered in the halls of the Senate before that date, but the term, referring to across-the-board federal funding cuts, manifested itself in a very personal way for most voters on the first day of this month.
