    Blink and you'll miss Christmas. It's always the same. Weeks of build up and then it's over in a flash.

    It's not all doom and gloom though, because the New Year comes around quickly and it's at this point that resolutions are made. 

    For a lot of people this means making an effort to cut back on alcohol or junk food. But that's difficult to keep up for a whole year. A longer-term move that a lot of people make in the new year is to change jobs, and we have the course to help those people achieve their ambitions.

    Udemy's best-selling career development course is now available for just £11.99, down from £29.99. 'The Complete Job, Interview, Résumé/LinkedIn and Network Guide' does what it says on the tin. The course combines guidance on interviewing skills, LinkedIn techniques, and networking, meaning you can secure your dream job in 2019. Read more...

    Winter and coffee go together (it's science), but venturing outside to get that coffee in the middle of winter just plain sucks.

    As if you needed another reason to stay inside: numerous Keurigs are on sale at Amazon and Walmart today and the selection of discounted machines is even better than Cyber Monday

    It's worth noting that even when they're not on sale, Keurigs pay for themselves after about five weeks if you're used to a daily Starbucks habit.

    Whether you're in the market for a strong dark roast, a holiday-flavored iced latte, something to serve the whole office, or something cheap to meet a gift exchange price limit, there's something on sale for you. Read more...

    Ever watch a video so powerful it makes you simultaneously scream out loud, want to barf, and vow to solely wear nothing but flat shoes for the rest of your life?

    No? Well I regret to inform you that you're about to.

    This absolutely cursed video making the rounds on social media shows things going terribly wrong after a woman tries on massive red high heeled shoes in a clothing store. As one might guess, she falls. But it's so much worse than that. The way in which her body contorts itself is a complete freaking nightmare.

    Her ankle bends, her knees buckle, her arms are done for, and she even hits her head! It's one of the most mortifying yet impressive injuries we've ever seen. Read more...
