Weekday Wanderlust | Places: Château La Durantie, Encore Une Fois

WE HAVE FEATURED Château La Durantie many times here at TIG, but every time we come across new photos, we can't help but revisit the French château, about an hour’s drive from Limoges, in the Dordogne, Southwest France. Built in 1840, the one-time residence of the Duke of Isly is now a popular wedding venue, and it's not difficult to see why, with its utterly romantic interiors and twelve acres of gardens. These beautiful images were created by UK-based Brett Charles Photography. Scroll through for more...

Style Inspiration for Late-September’s Blustery Days

WHILE IT HAS been sunny lately and all the leaves are still wonderfully green with only a few touches of yellow here and there, and only a few that have fallen along pathways and around the foot of signs at coffee and ice cream shops, it was blustery today. The kind of blustery wind that has a coolness attached to it, the kind that is meant to shake leaves from trees and carry them away …

News 22.09.21 : Today’s Articles of Interest from Around the Internets

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s chief executive, signed off last month on a new initiative code-named Project Amplify. The effort, which was hatched at an internal meeting in January, had a specific purpose: to use Facebook’s News Feed, the site’s most important digital real estate, to show people positive stories about the social network. The idea was that pushing pro-Facebook news items — some of them written by the company — would improve its image in the eyes of its users, three people with knowledge of the effort said.

Several executives at the meeting were shocked by the proposal, one attendee said.

News 20.09.21 : Today’s Articles of Interest from Around the Internets

It’s simple, we are often told: All you have to do to maintain a healthy weight is ensure that the number of calories you ingest stays the same as the number of calories you expend. If you take in more calories, or energy, than you use, you gain weight; if the output is greater than the input, you lose it. But while we’re often conscious of burning calories when we’re working out, 55 to 70 percent of what we eat and drink actually goes toward fueling all the invisible chemical reactions that take place in our body to keep us alive. “We think about metabolism as just being about exercise, but it’s so much more than that,” says Herman Pontzer, an associate professor of evolutionary anthropology at Duke University. “It’s literally the running total of how busy your cells are throughout the day.” Figuring out your total energy expenditure tells you how many calories you need to stay alive. But it also tells you “how the body is functioning,” Pontzer says. “There is no more direct measure of that than energy expenditure.”
