The 2019 Ford Ranger

After only a few months on the market, Ford's new Ranger mid-size pickup truck is being recalled to fix an issue with the automatic transmission's shifter interlock override feature.

The shifter interlock override feature is meant to prevent unwanted vehicle movement, locking the transmission when in park and requiring the vehicle to be running and the driver's foot on the brake to shift into reverse, neutral, or drive. According to a statement from Ford, the affected Rangers may have faulty PRNDL bezel wiring that can interfere with the feature. The company reported that it isn't aware of any accidents...

The Golden Globes Red Carpet 2019

The 2019 Golden Globes red carpet has wrapped, and while last year's looks might've been all one color, the gowns will be remembered for their extraordinary meaning. If you recall, stars came together in 2018 to support the black dress initiative, a symbol of protest against sexual harassment in the industry. That's one tough act to follow — even with all the tulle in the world. Emma Stone Holly Taylor Camilla Belle Rachel Brosnahan gave a fashion nod to the Time's Up movement with this bracelet. Justin Hartley adjusts the dress of his wife, Chrishell Stause. Jeannie Mai gets some help with her dress. Idris Elba walks the red carpet with his fiancee, Sabrina Dhowre, and his daughter, Isan.

The Honest Co. Hand Sanitizier Spray

There's really no time of year when you shouldn't be using hand sanitizer — especially if you, like me, live in New York City and come into contact with an unthinkable number of germs via the Subway or even the door handle to get into your office building.     But now that cold and flu season is officially upon us (reminder: go get your flu shot!), it's all the more reason to stock up. So you might as well stock up on a good one that's actually pleasant to use, like The Honest Co.'s version. It's plant-based and hypoallergenic, and I've found that it definitely doesn't dry out my hands as much as other formulas can. That's probably because this one (while, yes, being made...
