How to Have Morning Sex

by Vanessa Marin

Most people think of sex as a nighttime activity—but it can be even more enjoyable first thing in the morning. You were going to hit the snooze button a few times anyway, so why not do something fun instead? Here’s how to have fantastic morning sex.

Friday Eating & Reading

by Jenny

.

What I’m reading and eating this week:

When a James Beard Award-winning chef writes a slow cooker cookbook, I pay attention. When that James Beard Award-winning chef is Hugh Acheson, above, I jump for joy.

I am obsessing over the color of these kitchen cabinets and the yellow-framed kitchen windows in this sunny Seattle home.

Congratulations to a longtime DALS favorite writer (and onetime contributor!) George Saunders whose novel Lincoln in the Bardo won the super-fancy Man Booker Prize. (Pretty soon this blog might just devote itself to him full-time.)

Easy, spooky treats to bring to the Halloween party (or just to entertain you on a lazy fall afternoon).

We bought some new drinking glasses and I love them because they are elegant enough for a Manhattan, and simple enough for a morning grapefruit juice.

“My head makes the pictures.” I love this quote from a seven-year-old about Pinna, the new podcast for kids.

Speaking of podcasts, I pretty much always love The Daily, but this episode, about Shannon Mulcahy, a single mother of two whose job at a factory was moving to Mexico, was riveting. (Scroll to Wednesday, October 18.)

Amy Sedaris’s instagram feed is everything.

Bon Appetit‘s “Keepers,” the 40 recipes readers keep coming back to. I’m debuting this beautiful looking thing in the very near future.

Phillip Pullman fans rejoice: The Book of Dust is finally here. (For the uninitiated, have your kids start with The Golden Compass, first in the fantasy series my daughter loves above all other fantasy series, and that includes Harry Potter and Tolkein.)

As long as you’re there, why not? 🙂

From the Dinner: A Love Story archives: Coke-braised Carnitas; Miso-Butter Tofu; Hard Cider-Braised Chicken; Iced Oatmeal Cookies.

Lastly, the nice people at Epicurious asked me what nine things in the kitchen I couldn’t live without. Here is what I said.

Have a great weekend.

Nightmare fuel: Trapped in airplane seat crawling with bedbugs

by Beth Mole

British Airways has apologized to a Canadian family who reported being feasted upon by a pack of bedbugs during an overnight flight from Vancouver to London earlier this month, CTV Vancouver reported.

Passenger Heather Szilagyi was flying with her fiancé and eight-year-old daughter when she says she spotted several of the bugs on the seat in front of her. Szilagyi said that as someone who had worked in the hotel industry, she was primed to identify them. But when she flagged the flight attendant and asked to be moved, she got no help.

“She was like, 'Oh ok, sorry about that. We're sold out. We don't have anywhere to move you,'” Szilagyi told CTV.

Hexagonal Sphericon Hematite with High Performance for Water Oxidation

by Taiwo Odedairo, Xuecheng Yan, Xiangdong Yao, Kostya (Ken) Ostrikov, Zhonghua Zhu

Abstract

A cost-effective hexagonal sphericon hematite with predominant (110) facets for the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) is demonstrated. Sequential incorporation of near-atomic uniformly distributed Ce species and Ni nanoparticles into selected sites of the hematite induces a complex synergistic integration phenomenon that enhances the overall catalytic OER performance. This cheap hexagonal sphericon hematite (Fe ≈ 98%) only needs a small overpotential (η) of 0.34 V to reach 10 mA cm−2, superior to commercial IrO2 and more expensive Co-, Ni-, and Li-based electrocatalysts.

Electrocatalysis: Porous Cobalt Phosphide Polyhedrons with Iron Doping as an Efficient Bifunctional Electrocatalyst (Small 40/2017)

by Feng Li, Yunfei Bu, Zijian Lv, Javeed Mahmood, Gao-Feng Han, Ishfaq Ahmad, Guntae Kim, Qin Zhong, Jong-Beom Baek
Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

In article number 1701167, Guntae Kim, Qin Zhong, and Jong-Beom Baek, and co-workers report an efficient bifunctional electrocatalyst for hydrogen/oxygen evolution in alkaline solution. The electrocatalyst is composed of porous cobalt phosphide polyhedrons with iron doping and exhibits significantly enhanced electrocatalytic activities for both hydrogen/oxygen evolution with long-term stability.
