Back in May, Elijah Zorn lay in his incubator, all 3.8 pounds of him, a ventilator mechanically inflating his tiny chest.

Hillary Dole’s first Toque Friday ended with a broken nose and a bloody face.
The event, she told Insider, was an annual tradition for the Cornell University softball team when she joined as a freshman in 2017. All new recruits were instructed to pull beanie hats over their eyes and stand in a line. Then, while they were effectively blindfolded, their teammates and coach yelled at them to run.
“It was confusing, chaotic, intimidating, and I didn’t…
I looked forward to my getaway from my family, but I quickly realized that I had forgotten how to be alone.
The past year left me, like many others, wanting to find a moment alone, away from my children and partner. I’m one of the lucky ones who actually got to do it. I was gifted a quick getaway for my 40th birthday.
I imagined everything I would do without a child hanging off my body: Eat meals slowly without little fingers picking at my plate, sit by a pool without having to keep an eye on…

After an Insider reporter cooked all of her dinners in a Crock-Pot for a week, she learned you might not be able to “set and forget” some slow-cooker meals.
While the week was filled with ups and downs, I also took away some valuable knowledge about best practices when using my Crock-Pot, which recipes worked well, and what I would do differently the next time I want to make a slow-cooker meal.
Here are five things I wish I knew before using a Crock-Pot…
Common reasons people may always feel tired include poor diet, dehydration, lack of sleep, and underlying medical conditions like a thyroid disorder.
By Erin Heger
If you always feel tired, it may be sleepiness or fatigue — and there’s a key difference. Sleepy people would sleep, given the opportunity, and it will often give them more energy. Fatigued people tend to have low energy levels regardless of sleep, and generally don’t feel like doing much.
There are many causes of sleepiness and fatigue. Whether it’s lack of sleep, poor sleep quality, a nutrient deficiency, or an underlying condition — here…

By Via Hendrix
I had dreamed of moving from my small town in Tennessee to New York City ever since I visited the Big Apple when I was 4 years old. Unfortunately, I didn’t quite grasp how expensive it is to live there until I was much older.

“Jeet? Ope! Come take off your gym shoes and have some puppy chow.” If you understand this sentence, you’re probably from the Midwest.
The Midwest has some of the most unique phrases and slang terms you’ll ever hear. As a native Wisconsinite, my Midwestern vocabulary can sometimes slip into day-to-day conversations with friends and coworkers in New York City, resulting in utter confusion.
From calling sneakers “gym shoes” to asking someone “Jeet?” here a breakdown of some Midwestern lingo:
