Autumn is arguably the best season for outdoor adventures — replacing summer staples with flannels for layering, boots designed for optimal leave crunching, and coats to jacket your quest for more cider donuts than anyone could ever eat. These essential fall items have become crisp standards that are sure to outlast America’s obsession with pumpkin spiced everything.
Give layering season an upgrade with these updated standards.

Beautiful photos of our ceremony from Fabrice Tranzer. 
To me, photography as an art form has always meant Black & White. Not sure why.Maybe because I grew up in France where Cartier Bresson, Doisneau and Lartigue’s images are just part of the common visual consciousness.Could be also because I feel that a B&W image, not being a…

So happy and proud to finally announce what our team has been working on!  Watch videos and browse the web with friends and family easily with Rabbit.
Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube all let you watch whatever you want, whenever you want. But if you wanted to watch with friends or family, you had to figure out when and where to meet in real life. Rabbit fixes that with a browser-based video chat service that lets you watch whatever you want with friends, no matter where they are.

Been coming here for years — they staff is super polite and on several occasions have sewed my shirt buttons back on at no charge. Great place for simple tailoring.

This must be the filthiest hotel in Panama. A run-down resort off the main island, Popa Paradise has seen better days. The room was broken-down, with stained sheets, a broken TV, and cracks in the walls that let the bugs in. The kitchen was disgusting — all of the glasses and plates were dirty, and nothing was ever wiped up. I never should have trusted TripAdvisor. This place is horrible. Do not waste your money. You would have to pay me to return to this dump. Do not stay at this hotel, it is a scam. It is a broken down mess, and there is always new managers because the owners are absent and they just hire and fire seasonal help. Everyone in Bocas Town knows this place is a joke, it's too bad we paid via PayPal and can't get our money back. This place should be shut down by the board of health for gross negligence.
