Pleae help me make Caramel Using Coconut Sugar? — I am making my own ice cream pops. One flavor I'm developing is Peach Cobbler. I've been trying to include some caramel in the bars, yet I can't seem to make a type caramel using coconut sugar, tha...

The Beauty of the Multitool: Swiss Army Knives From Ancient Rome to the Consumer Electronics Show — The multitool is such a simple idea: Your many implements, tightly tucked together in one little package. The Swiss Army knife, first built by a German company in 1891, is the iconic example. With its red handle and Victorinox logo, it comes equipped with a couple of dozen small tools -- knives, picks, even a magnifying glass.

The New York Times Had a Mistake on Its Front Page Every Day for More Than a Century — Nobody knows exactly how it happened, but somehow, between February 6, 1898, and February 7, 1898, the issue numbering for The New York Times got a little ... off. It's easy enough to imagine the scene: A worker, late at night, setting the paper's front-page type.

The Hidden Cost of a Flexible Job — It's freezing and snowy. It's a million degrees and humid. Your kids are sick. The repairman is coming. You have a doctor's appointment. Whatever the reason, many workers are lucky enough to be able to take advantage of workplaces that offer a bit of flexibility as to when and where they work.

The Man Who Made Louis Vuitton, Louis Vuitton — Over the weekend, Yves Carcelle, former leader of the luxury brand Louis Vuitton, passed away in Paris at the age of 66. In obituaries and social-media posts, friends and colleagues have remembered him as a warm, charming character, someone with " a rare human touch."

The Bottom 1 Percent — How is it different to be poor-very poor-in a developing country than in the richest country in the world? That's the question asked in a new paper from Brookings researchers Laurence Chandy and Cory Smith. To answer it, Chandy and Smith needed to know more about that very bottom of America's wealth distribution-those living below the global poverty line of $2 per day.

Seeing the Great Depression — For a singular image of the Great Depression and the roughness of those years, it's hard to do much better than Dorothea Lange's 1936 photograph of Florence Owens Thompson, two of her children tucking their faces over her shoulders, a baby in her lap.

Daimler Employees Can Set Emails to Auto-Delete During Vacation — Workers can look forward to coming back to an inbox exactly as they'd left it. Even the most disciplined relaxers can find themselves just, you know, every now and then, taking a peek at their work email when they're away on vacation. Yes, their out-of-office reminders are set.

What Would You Want to Buy After Spending 30 Years in Prison? — Last month, when Glenn Ford was released from prison for a crime he didn't commit, the state of Louisiana " gave him a $20 debit card for his troubles." That, plus the four cents he had left in his prison account, was all he had.

Why Is Comcast So Terrible? — Last month, when millions of people listened in for eight minutes of Comcast-customer-service pain, there was more to the clip's viral power than just the Kafka-esque plight of the caller. There was also, underlying the clip's resonance, a shared, simmering resentment, not of customer service in general, but of Comcast, the nation's largest cable provider, in particular.
