The Urban Outfitters Home and Kitchen Section Is Actually Great

frank lampard

I don’t want to make generalizations, so I will just speak for myself: I personally cannot buy another Urban Outfitters crop top for as long as I live. This is a sad development because for a good portion of high school and college, I relied on the store to keep me in a steady stream of skinny pants and patterned dresses (and also these—it was a regrettable time). But I am 29 now, a grown person who wears mostly plain black t-shirts and mom jeans, and there is no place in my life or closet for the iridescent wedge sneakers of my youth. It is with a heavy heart that I bid adieu to Urban Outfitters, leaving it in the extremely capable and well-moisturized hands of America’s Teens.™ 

That is, except the home and kitchen section. 

The Urban Outfitters home and kitchen section objectively rules. Yes, it requires a bit

Baths: 1 full

Sewer/water: Public

Fee: $282 a month

Street names sometimes bear no connection to reality, but that’s not the case for this Rockport condo. It’s on Granite Street in a coastal North Shore town where granite quarrying was an economic mainstay into the 1930s. And this connection to what became the foundation of countless buildings is even closer: The condo was the onetime home of Rockport Granite Co., and its neighbor is Flat Ledge Quarry.

This unit offers single-floor living found at the end of a 14-foot-long foyer. Here the floor plan opens into a 538-square-foot living/dining area and a 238-square-foot kitchen. Thick columns add visual drama to the living/dining area, which has hardwood flooring believed

A Short Story From “Sansei And Sensibility”

frank lampard


BuzzFeed News; Coffee House Press

My cousin locked me inside his mother’s apartment. Th­is isn’t funny, I thought. I jiggled the lock. He had sawed off the stem on the dead bolt so the inside knob wouldn’t work. I knew this. He’d already explained this to me. Anyone could knock out the glass on the door, put their hands through, and open the dead bolt. He’d also made sure the windows were secure. I went to try the windows anyway, but he had fixed them so you could open them only about three inches. I’m skinny but not that skinny. I was in a locked box. I guess that was the point.

As locked boxes go, this was a pretty nice one. I mean, it had all the amenities: refrigerator, microwave, TV, telephone, bath, and bed. Well, it had more than amenities; it was a kind of museum and a

Kitchen and Laundry Appliance Manufacturers Must Leverage Online Presence and Support, J.D. Power Finds

frank lampard

TROY, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Whether it be on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube or online retailer websites, kitchen and laundry appliance manufacturers must stay connected to their customer base online, according to the J.D. Power 2020 Kitchen and Laundry Appliance Satisfaction Studies,SM released today.

Unsatisfied kitchen and laundry appliance customers have a tendency to be more vocal about their experiences, especially online, than those who are satisfied,” said Christina Cooley, At Home intelligence lead at J.D. Power. “It is imperative that manufacturers are creating an ecosystem for their customers where shoppers and purchasers can access educational video tutorials and customer testimonials to offset the negative reviews online shoppers are seeing. The more customers are educated on product features, the easier it will be for them to use the products effectively and efficiently, therefore increasing satisfaction.”

The People’s Kitchen at El Compadre serves free meals and social justice to those in need

frank lampard

At 7 a.m. one recent Tuesday morning, the crew from El Compadre already had their hands in the dirt of an urban farm in Point Breeze, clearing-out fallow beds and turning the soil of their newly acquired garden plots, even gathering their lucky first harvest, a bushy green purslane left by previous tenants.

Containers of rice with braised beef are filled at the People’s Kitchen at El Compadre in Philadelphia, Pa. on July 15, 2020. The group made 200 meals for the needy.

“Purslane is a very delicious weed that a lot of the gardeners don’t care about,” says Carly Pourzand, 27, an avid gardener who’s also been coordinating the transformation this spring of El Compadre into the People’s Kitchen, where these greens would soon be cooked.

IKEA Brings Kitchen Design to Virtual Reality

frank lampard

IKEA has turned remodeling your kitchen into an HTC Vive VR game.

The Swedish furniture giant has launched a virtual reality app called the IKEA VR experience, just in time as the first HTC Vive headsets begin shipping today.

The pilot app which is available on Steam VR and built using Unreal Engine 4 from Epic Games, lets Vive headset owners design their own virtual Ikea kitchen that is true to size. Once inside the app, you can explore one of three differently-styled kitchen room settings and change the color of cabinets and drawers with a click.

Change the color of cabinets.

Another feature is the ability to view the VR kitchen from different perspectives by either shrinking or stretching yourself to move around the kitchen at the size of a 3.3 foot-tall child or a 6.4 foot-tall adult. This could be a very useful feature, allowing you to walk
