There are no stupid questions. Only stupid people.

There really is no time quite like Confirmation Season. Don’t get me wrong, politics are beholden to a wide variety of nonsensical dog and pony shows, each involving their own special kind of dumb, but if the recent confirmation hearings for soon-to-be Justice Ketanji Brown-Jackson are any evidence, Supreme Court nomination hearings might just be the dumbest.

That’s big talk in a world in which Sen. Ron Blumenthal once grilled Facebook execs on whether or not they would take down “Finsta,” an app or service or who knows what that doesn’t actually exist, but here we are. 

Such is the nature of giving opposition senators free reign to say whatever they want with thousands of cameras on them.…

The City That Never Sleeps… Because It Can’t Afford To!

Remember a year ago, when landlords were dealing out “COVID discounts” and rents were lower than they had ever been, and you moved into Midtown Manhattan on a student budget?

Well, that’s over now.

More and more people are receiving rent renewal notices with increases over $800-$1,000 a month raising a dilemma – stay or look for a cheaper apartment elsewhere. Unfortunately, “cheap” is not really an option. Suddenly, living in the city dubbed “dead and likely to stay that way” not so very long ago is cool again.

If you don’t believe me, here are some testimonials from fellow Sternies who have had the privilege of working with this dynamic duo:

“I didn’t think I would like living under an authoritarian state and I was right. I loved it. Brittany and Bucky ruled with an iron fist.

Spring is in the air

At the risk of dating myself, which could probably be the lede of any article I write, I was thinking recently about 2001, when the Seattle Mariners signed some Japanese outfielder named Ichiro Suzuki. Eventually, he became kind of famous, but any true baseball fan knows the biggest Japanese import that season was actually New York Mets outfielder Tsuyoshi Shinjo. Yeah, Shinjo may not have had the longevity of Ichiro, and also unlike Ichiro he didn’t win Rookie of the Year, a batting title, and League MVP in his first Major League season, but man he was fun to watch.…

Meet Runfluencer Ali Feller, Creator and Host of Ali on the Run

Since its creation, the show has taken off with more than 500 episodes and is one of the most listened-to podcasts in the running community.
