These Adjustable Dumbbells Are Perfect for Any At-Home Workout
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/Scouted/AmazonScouting Report: Keep your home gym free of clutter with one dumbbell that does the work of four.At the beginning of every year, I promise to make working out a priority. But when my gym closed early last year, I used it as an excuse to binge eat in front of the television instead. One season of Bridgerton and way too much ice cream later, I decided it was time to get off the couch and start looking for creative ways to keep up with my workout routine at home.Don't get me wrong; I'm not trying to get ripped, but I make a point to include some form of strength training in my workouts, and I've always favored free weights over bulky weight machines, especially at home.

Solving a Scotch Mystery
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/Alamy/ShutterstockIf you’ve ever taken a tour of a distillery you’ll no doubt have heard the ethereal phrase: the angel’s share.It’s also been used as a name for restaurants, bars and hotels. It’s a bakery in west London and a massage parlor in Lyon, France. It’s a fragrance (with woody whisky notes), an extravagantly flowering bearded iris and an Irish racehorse. It’s a tune by jazz pianist Jacky Terrasson and a song by French crooner Philippe Lavil. It’s been used as a name for numerous brands of wines and spirits, and for one of the most famous spirits auctions in the world. Six twenty-first century books have used it as a title, from crime thrillers to erotic literature. It’s a Ken Loach film featuring a mythical cask of single malt Scotch and a gang of Glaswegian ne’er do wells, starring Scottish whisky expert Charlie Maclean.But for all its familiarity, have you ever wondered where the phrase the “angel’s share” originated?Read more at The Daily Beast.
