The Sunscreen Debate – Is More Really More?

Even though the FDA proposed a cap on SPFs at 50+, brands are still putting sky-high skin protection on the shelves and consumers may be buying in. From 75 to 85 and now to 100, the auctioneer is raising the number and raising it fast - but, is there any merit in SPFs that high, or is just brand hype?

Richard Miller - Breakthrough Photographer

Richard Miller, a pioneer in photographic methods, often used the cabro printing process, a technically detailed and challenging method of production, in his amazing photography, which  includes early pictures of Marilyn Monroe and James Dean. In contrast, he used black and white film to document the building of the Hollywood freeway, photographs he made just for himself that are published for the first time in his new book, "Freeway."

Eat Food. Not Too Much. Mostly Plants.

Award winning author Michael Pollan is back on the road to talk more about what we should and should not be eating. In his latest New York Times bestseller In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto, Pollan explains why we should avoid the center aisles of the grocery store, think often of our great-grandmothers, and the difference between actual food that is safe to consume and the ever dangerous edible food-like substances.
