    Laundry is definitely not my forte. Thankfully, I live in New York, and even better, near an amazing laundromat: Celsious, which was founded by two sisters, Corinna and Theresa Williams. Not only does Celsious have the most energy-efficient washer and dryers and eco-friendly detergent and a friendly staff, they also used to have cold brew and kombucha on tap, before the pandemic started. Ever since I started going to Celsious, I started to wonder about other laundry methods—the eco-conscious swaps they make seemed not only simple to execute, but didn’t leave me feeling like I was missing out on anything. In fact, my clothes felt cleaner. So, I reached out to Corinna to see if she had any swaps she could recommend, to make laundry at home a little more sustainable. “When we first found out about dryer sheets, we weren’t sure what they were,” Corinna told me, laughing. “It turns out, they are actually filled with harmful ingredients that are known carcinogens and neurotoxins. All of these toxins are part of fabric softener and are released in the dryer.”...

    Vincent Scalise of the New York National Guard was deployed to Washington, D.C., to help safeguard it following the deadly Capitol riot, but he was able to find a bright side to the mission after he was able to take a photograph with all 100 current senators.  The National Guard was divided into two teams – Team Senate and Team House – and Scalise found himself working in the Senate buildings.  The nearly two-month task started after Scalise spotted Sen.

    Dear Quentin, I read your column regularly. I never thought that I would reach out to you with my own issues. But I was wrong. I’m hoping you can help on how best to handle this situation. In 2016, I lost my long-term job. The company simply went through serious changes, and my position was no longer needed. They were great to me when I worked there, and they gave me a small severance package. I was 55 at the time. I was more than a bit anxiety ridden as I wasn’t in a position to retire, and I was concerned about the prospects of being rehired at this age. The good news is that I was a saver, had no debt and always lived frugally. My husband’s job carried the benefits. “ ‘I woke up every morning at 4 a.m. to research, research, research how best to use my resources and ended up starting a small business.’ ” I woke up every morning at 4 a.m. to research, research, research how best to use my resources...
