A weekly newsletter that gives you 6 brief personal recommendations of cool stuff. Check out our new 2018 Recomendo book:

I am not worried about much, but I do worry about cyber war. There is no consensus on what is acceptable in cyber warfare and all countries, including the US, are deploying cyber attacks. The best documentary to inform this worry is Zero Days, available as a DVD, or on demand on Amazon, iTunes, GooglePlay, etc. Shows what cyber war is. Not sci-fi, but what is already here yesterday. With more to come! — KK
Health Service:
I was recently in between health insurance providers and couldn’t get in to see the doctor before my birth control pills ran out. l signed-up for Nurx (took less than 10 minutes), and within 3 days, they sent me a 3-month supply in the mail — no charge. For those without insurance, options start at $15 per month, but from now until the end of January, you can get a $45 dollar credit with their Trump-inspired promo code: Tinyhands. — CD
Designer Sean Tejaratchi’s website LiarTownUSA contains Sean’s profoundly absurd (and occasionally R-rated) parody book covers, TV show credits, collectible plates, store signs, and advertising ephemera. He’s a genius. — MF
Organizational Tip:
Keeping my makeup, charger and other loose belongings in zippered pouches makes it easy to move from purse to purse without misplacing or leaving something behind. These black mesh bags work well, because you can see what’s inside. — CD 
A great one-episode podcast that taught me a lot about negotiation that I wished I had learned decades ago: How Creatives Should Negotiate, run by Ramit Sethi on the Tim Ferriss podcast. As the title suggests this 1.5 hour seminar is aimed at creatives such as photographers, musicians, designers and the like, but really the advice is useful to anyone. — KK
I bought the Amazon 7” Fire Tablet for $40. It’s great for reading ebooks, listening to audiobooks, and watching Netflix and Amazon Prime videos. But I also followed the instructions here to install the Google Play Store, so I can add Android apps not available from the Amazon App Store. Now I have Google Maps, Gmail, Slack, Feedly and more on the tablet. — MF
