Ever wonder if moving to a different state would lead to a slightly better salary? Browsing through 2015 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, career guide Zippia attempts to answer the question by highlighting the lowest and highest paying jobs across the country in these maps.

As springtime rolls around, Friday nights mean dining alfresco, rooftop bars, outdoor parties and generally blowing off steam from the stressors of winter. Hand-in-hand with all that fun are the inevitable hungover Saturday mornings, which make for the perfect excuse to binge-watch light-hearted comedies and gripping thrillers. Here are our picks for the best shows premiering or returning this spring, from nostalgic reboots to super-topical snapshots of modern dating (Aziz Ansari, you just get us). Grab a glass of rosé, prepare some popcorn and get excited about these upcoming TV gems. RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 9 premieres on VH1 on March 24 If your idea of staying in and “reading” on a Friday night doesn’t involve books, then get ready for the next lineup of girls competing to be crowned “America’s next drag superstar.” There is even promise of hot-off-the-Superbowl Lady Gaga making an appearance this season. Grace and Frankie Season 3 drops on Netflix on March 24 Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda return as two baby boomers who have to deal with their respective former husbands getting remarried... to each other. 13 Reasons Why The series premieres on Netflix on March 31 The much anticipated adaptation of Jay Asher’s bestseller was announced by executive producer Selena Gomez, who termed it a “passion project.” The show follows a group of teenagers uncovering the truth behind a classmate’s tragic suicide by listening to tapes
Marketing agency Mediakix just released a new study that will get you depressed. After crunching the numbers, the company predicted that the modern human (that is: you) will likely spend five years and four months interacting with other average, connected people on social media in the course of a lifetime. Specifically, social media users will spend one year and seven months on Facebook, one year and two months on Snapchat, eight months on Instagram and one year and ten months on YouTube. No, we didn't forget about Twitter: apparently, the average user navigates Twitter about one minute a day, which adds up to a (mere) 18 days over an entire lifetime. Hold on to your horses as the bad news is far from over. Comparing the data to a set of other "average" activities, the company reveals that lifetime social media use came in second only to watching television (seven years and eight months) but way ahead of eating/drinking (three years and five months), grooming (one year and ten months), socializing (one year and three months) and even doing laundry (six months). So expect humans to become expert cat video watchers and start wearing dirty clothes. Hurrah! Viva humanity! No, we are not done: an infographic that accompanies the data lists the things that we could be doing if we actually did something during those wasted five years and four months. For example: we could fly to the moon and back 32 times, watch The Simpsons series 215 times, walk our dogs 93,000 times or the Gre

An aquatic-looking toast topped with blue-and-green, whimsical spreads and garnishes, the eclectic foodie creation was first introduced to Instagram by food stylist Adeline Waugh—who also happens to be responsible for that unicorn toast you once obsessed over. To get the colors just right, Waugh mixed algae powders and liquids with almond milk cream cheese but those attempting to replicate her work have used alternative methods, including Greek yogurt bases with matcha powders and berry-based jams. We round up some of the most mesmerizing mermaid toasts below while wondering if they taste as good as they look: A post shared by LEAFtv (@leaftv) on Mar 22, 2017 at 1:04pm PDT A post shared by POPSUGAR Fitness (@popsugarfitness) on Mar 18, 2017 at 8:59am PDT A post shared by Katherine's Kitchen (@kleangreenbody) on Mar 22, 2017 at 7:50am PDT A post shared by L i s a M a r i e H u s b y (@lisamariehusby) on Mar 22, 2017 at 12:45am PDT A post shared by Sarah Keith (@sarah__keith) on Mar 16, 2017 at 11:20am PDT
"I'm Matt Brody, I don't have to try out!" says Zac Efron in the trailer for the much anticipated Baywatch movie while lifting two large refrigerators alongside Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who plays America's-most-renowned-lifeguard Mitch Buchannon. After watching the clip, it's clear what we're in for come the movie's release date (May 26): lots of abs, Efron and Johnson trying really hard to make us laugh (and most likely succeeding) and, of course, a whole lot of slow motion running on the beach. Check out the trailer for yourself:
We believe this is what they refer to as food porn. Photographer Beth Galton and food stylist Charlotte Omnès collaborated on an out-of-the-ordinary photo project involving foods cut in half and, be warned, the results will make you salivate. "This series was inspired by an assignment in which we were asked to cut a burrito in half for a client," recalls Galton in an email. "Normally for a job, we photograph the surface of food occasionally taking a bite or a piece out but rarely the cross section of a finished dish. I found the inside so interesting I thought it would be fun to explore other foods." Browsing through a long list of potential subjects, the duo ended up shooting a split-in-half cup of coffee, an ice cream sundae and even a frozen turkey, among other fare. How did they narrow down their options? "It became evident that it was important to choose items which we don't usually look at the interior of," says Galton. In addition to depicting usual subjects in unusual ways, the photos are visually striking and minimally edited. "When possible, Charlotte used gelatin in liquids plus other food styling tricks," recalls Galton. "[But] we always wanted to do as much as possible in camera without Photoshop." Check out a selection of pictures from the series below: Photograph: Beth Galton Photograph: Beth Galton Photograph: Beth Galton Photograph: Beth Galton Photograph: Beth Galton Photograph: Beth Galton Photograp
The American Kennel Club (AKC), the largest purebred dog registry in the country, has just released its annual list of most popular dogs in the country and, drum roll please, the Labrador Retriever earned the top spot... for the 26th year in a row. "The Labrador Retriever has a strong hold on the top spot, and doesn't show signs of giving it up anytime soon," said Gina DiNardo, Vice President at AKC. "The Lab is such a versatile dog that it's not wonder it makes a great companion for a variety of lifestyles. Keep your eye on the Rottweiler, though. It's been quietly winning hearts over the past decade." Fun facts: Labs were originally used for fishing (they're extremely fast), are the most commonly used breed for guide dogs, excel at sports, are temperamentally calm and they're actually not really from Labrador but from St. John's, the capital city of Newfoundland island. Below, check out the full top ten list of most popular dogs in the country: 1. Labrador Retriever 2. German Shepherd Dog 3. Golden Retriever 4. Bulldog 5. Beagle 6. French Bulldog 7. Poodle 8. Rottweiler 9. Yorkshire Terrier 10. Boxer
The Food Chain Workers Alliance (FCWA), a coalition of worker groups representing restaurant workers, farm laborers, meat processing plant employees, street vendors and warehouse employees, is organizing a large scale labor strike on May 1, International Workers' Day. According to BuzzFeed News, over 300,000 non-union food chain workers and tens of thousands of unionized service workers will be participating in the demonstration. “The vital labor of food workers feeds communities across this country. Yet, our jobs are some of the lowest paid in the nation and we struggle to put food on our own families’ tables,” declared the FCWA in a Facebook post announcing the strike. “We will not sit by as families are shattered by immigration raids, [native] sovereignty is violated, Muslims are banned, and [black] and [brown] communities face even more criminalization, trans people excluded and while corporate [interests] drive down wages, safety protections, organizing rights and rapidly destroy the environment. On this international day of action, we strike for dignified jobs for all.” What will the strike look like? Echoing February's strike by bodega owners in New York, workers are encouraged to stay home from work and school and avoid buying anything that day. The FCWA is also crowdfunding a hardship fund to help low-income workers who can't afford to take a day off. Restaurant Opportunities Center United, a labor group that helped organize last month's immigrant strike, and

Muggles are now a step closer to the wizarding world of Harry Potter: Pennsylvania's Yuengling Ice Cream is selling Butterbeer ice cream. “We are always looking for ways to inspire our fans and spark creativity. Whether it’s our flavor names and descriptions or the recipes themselves—we’re in the business of having fun,” said David Yuengling, the company's president, in a press release. “We hope we made J.K. Rowling proud with this flavor." Made with half buttercream ice cream, half butterscotch ice cream and twisted with a butterscotch swirl, the pint is to resemble the frothy and creamy drink that gives Rowling's characters a buzz—although the ice cream is completely alcohol-free. The flavor, now available only in pints, will forever be part of Yuengling's Ice Cream lineup, which includes 20 total varieties, and can be found at supermarkets and chains around the country for $3.69-$3.99.
