Earlier this week, New York Magazine wrote about a mindblowing new fashion trend called Normcore.


What's Normcore? It's the startling new trend, writes Fiona Davis, of "embracing sameness deliberately rather than striving for difference."

Mmkay.


"It's a very flat look, conspicuously unpretentious," explains fashion editor Jeremy Lewis. Lewis swears it's not ironic and instead says that Normcore is about "the idea that one doesn't need their clothes to make a statement." O RLY?


We can think of one guy who embodies that look to a T.

15 Mistakes You're Making At The Grocery Store

It’s time to put this “parsley or cilantro?” question to bed, once and for all.



Evaporated Milk vs. Sweetened Condensed Milk


Evaporated Milk vs. Sweetened Condensed Milk


Evaporated milk is a shelf-stable milk with 60% less water (thus, 60% less volume) than regular milk. Stabilizers and vitamins are added, but no sweeteners or flavorings. It's often used in savory baking recipes (like bread); if a dessert recipe calls for evaporated milk, it will call for some kind of sweetener as well.


Sweetened condensed milk, on the other hand, is evaporated milk plus sugar. After 60% of the water is removed from the milk, sugar is added to create a thick liquid that's super sweet and more like syrup than milk.


IN A NUTSHELL: Sweetened condensed milk is evaporated milk with sugar added.


Can I substitute one for the other? No. Evaporated milk is thin and savory, sweetened condensed milk is thick and syrupy sweet.


Radish vs. Beet


Radish vs. Beet


Radishes and beets look similar, with red bulbs roughly the size of golf balls (though sometimes much bigger), but have totally different tastes and culinary uses.


Radishes (pictured left) have bright red skin and white flesh. They have a spicy flavor and are usually sliced thin and served raw, with the skins still on.


Beets (pictured right) have dark, reddish-purple skin with flesh the same color. They have a sweet, earthy, and slightly metallic flavor. Some people think they taste like dirt. Usually they're served roasted, as that brings out their intense sweetness, but sometimes they're served raw (shaved super thin). Either way, beets are always eaten without the skin.


IN A NUTSHELL: Radishes are raw salad veggies, beets are something you cook.


Can I substitute one for the other? No. Radishes are spicy and usually eaten raw, beets are sweet and usually eaten cooked.

What 18 Of The Biggest Technology And Media Companies Earn Per Employee

Apple makes nearly half a million dollars for each of its 80,300 employees, by far the most of any company on the list.



Chris Ritter/BuzzFeed


A company's revenue is not unlike a movie's box office gross — it has nothing to do with profitability. While revenue is the figure that usually grabs the headlines, what a company actually earns is what remains after the costs of goods, expenses, and taxes are subtracted. Profitability is, in essence, a measure of how efficiently a company operates.


Using data culled from their most recent 10-K reports, we looked at how efficiently some of the biggest media, entertainment and technologies companies are run as a measure of profitability per employee. To get the figure, we simply divided the fiscal year 2013 net income a company reported in its 10-K (companies end their financial years at different times, some in June, some in September, some in December) by the number of employees it reported.


The results were surprising even to us. We already knew that Apple made a lot of money, but nearly half a million dollars for each of its 80,300 employees is still awe-inspiring. The fact that Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox collects more for each of its employees than Google, Facebook, and Microsoft is a testament to the money-making power of cable networks and the fact that Murdoch runs a very lean organization. Similarly, Comcast and Disney are two of the biggest revenue-generating companies in media, but because their workforces are so large (136,000 for Comcast; 175,000 for Disney) they rank at the bottom of the list.


Here's a breakdown of the results from most money made per employee to least money made per employee:


Apple: $460,772 per employee.


Apple: $460,772 per employee.


Stephen Lam / Reuters


Apple spent much of 2013 fending off an attack from activist investor Carl Icahn over stock buybacks and questions from investors about its new product pipeline. Still, the company reported net income of $37 billion on revenue of $171 billion at the end of its 2013 fiscal year in September. The company said that as of Sept. 28, 2013 it had 80,300 "full-time equivalent" employees.
