Let the Quipping Begin: Apple Might Take Orange’s Place in Sponsoring…

A funny thing might be happening to the Orange Prize for Fiction, a prestigious literary award that recognizes novels written by women — its sponsor might be changing! Oh, wait, I told it wrong — the funny part is that the new sponsor might be none other than the company founded by a notorious Men in Black-esque… » 8/13/12 9:15pm 8/13/12 9:15pm

There's No Debating It: Our Sponsors Are Magic

On September 26 in 1960, the first televised debate between presidential candidates took place in Chicago. Republican Richard M. Nixon and Democrat John F. Kennedy squared off.

We're Dancing A Celebratory Jig Of Joy For Our Sponsors

In 1882, the Central Labor Union (of New York City) sought to create "a day off for the working citizens."

And, of course, time to thank the sponsors who make taking a day off possible. This… » 8/29/08 11:30am 8/29/08 11:30am

Our Sponsors Are Changing The Course Of History

On this day in history... bad things happened. (Well, on any day in history bad things happened, but, yeah.)

Our Sponsors Do Not Have Friggatriskaidekaphobia

Happy Friday The 13th! If you're superstitious, this is a super unlucky day, what with the 13 and the Friday. But this is the only Friday the 13th this year! Next year there will be three. Anyhoozle, how about we "take back" random ancient traditions then and make a new rule: Friday the 13ths are super lucky, starting » 6/13/08 10:00am 6/13/08 10:00am

Our Sponsors Sing Goodbye To May, Hello To June

May is winding down. Can you believe we're nearly halfway through this year? The pending summer certainly feels hard-earned. Personally, I've got a wicked case of sun lust.

Our Sponsors Know That's The Way Love Goes

Happy birthday to Janet Jackson, who turns 42 today! She's usually so soft-spoken, but she was loud, fierce and mouthy in her video for "That's The Way Love Goes." (So was a young Jennifer Lopez!)
