Jonathan Alsop, founder of the Boston Wine School, joined WGBH to talk about the latest trend in the world of wine: vinotherapy, the supposedly rejuvenating practice that involves, quite literally, filling a bathtub with wine and hopping in for a splash.

What a pale complexion, adult acne and more reveal about your health
Medical Daily
No one knows your skin better than you. Although we may be able to immediately point out when something is out of place, most of us aren't sure what these abnormalities may be. More often than not, we will either brush them off as "nothing" or jump to the worst possible conclusion. Rather than playing a guessing game when it comes to your skin's health, it's best to know for sure what's going on. After all, as they say, it's important to be comfortable in your own skin.

Here is a simple question that, asked with the right tone, can provide a lifeline to any student in any context. What do you think? It doesn't ask for much — only what they think or believe. Well, it also asks that they articulate what they think, so that's another step. But it doesn't ask for accuracy — alignment between what they're supposed to be thinking and what they actually think. There's not much on the line if they trust you. It's really a bit simple.

By Brian Stack
Every teacher wants to be able to say that he or she is increasing rigor in the classroom. How does a teacher go about doing that? It isn't enough for a teacher to make tests longer or add a comprehensive project to the curriculum. To increase rigor in the classroom, teachers need to get to the heart of what rigor is and understand the levels of rigor that exist so that they can evaluate their own teaching practices and build a plan to increase rigor from there.
