It only takes one night on an air mattress, or even an obliging friend’s sofa to make you grateful for your mattress.

Not everyone has the luxury of a good mattress, or hell, a mattress at all, but Ameena Mattress is looking to change all that.

Lack of adequate sleep inhibits your ability to think critically, can lead to stroke, heart attack, diabetes, decimates your sex drive, leads to wrinkles, and impairs judgment, among other terrible things. Sleep deprivation was a major factor in the Three Mile Island nuclear accident, the Exxon Valdez spill, and even Chernobyl’s disaster. Yeah, sleep isn’t a luxury, it’s imperative.  And if you live, let’s say 75 years, you’re going to spend around 25 years of it sleeping, so don’t you want the best mattress if you’re going to be spending a quarter of a century with it?

Ameena strives to make the absolute best mattress. They are designed to relieve pressure point irritation, which cuts down on disruptive tossing and turning and helps improve circulation. They also use a solid foundation, which will absorb the motion of a partner getting in or out of bed, or inexplicably jumping on the bed with red wine. But perhaps their most exciting feature is that you’ll never again suffer from the scourge of hot mattress! They use Thermaphase Gel Memory Foam that is apparently seven times better at reducing heat than other foams. You’ll be so glad come summer.

This miracle mattress, using CertiPUR-US certified foam, arrives rolled up in a box and is remarkably easy to move around. Try your Ameena mattress for a whopping 120 nights and if you don’t like it, no worries– send it on back. If you keep it, and odds are good you will, you have a 15-year warranty backing that baby up. All this and you’re looking at $900 for a king size.

But Ameena Mattress isn’t just concerned with your great night’s sleep. The company partners with charities and shelters all over the country to provide free mattresses for those in need. For every mattress sold, they give one away to places like Habitat for Humanity, Coalition on Temporary Shelter, The Salvation Army, and South Oakland Shelter, which alone provides a safe place to sleep for over 12,000 people, like veterans and domestic abuse victims.

You can rest easy knowing your purchase helped others do the same.

The Night Agent season 2: Everything we know so far
We'll get you ready for The Night Agent season 2!
Luciane Buchanan and Gabriel Basso in The Night Agent.

The Night Agent may not be everyone's choice to be among the best shows on Netflix, but it's in the top ten for us! The Shield creator Shawn Ryan adapted Matthew Quirk's spy action thriller, The Night Agent, for Netflix in 2023, and it proved to be a hit out of the gate. By Netflix's internal metrics, it's the sixth-highest viewed series in the history of the platform.

Those kind of numbers mean that a second season was inevitable, and Netflix made it official just over a week after The Night Agent premiered. Since the series is back in production, the details about what's coming up on the show have started to trickle out. To help you stay on top of this series, here's everything we know about The Night Agent season 2.

The 10 best Dominican cigars I’ve tried and tested in 2024
Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic.

Every seasoned cigar lover has a preference for where their cigars come from. Cuban and Cuban cigars are the more obvious choices, but there is also Nicaraguan tobacco, Central African, Indonesian, Mexican, Ecuadorian, and Dominican. Some tobacco is even grown in the United States. Each region has a distinct flavor profile that adds a little something extra to the tobacco grown locally, as well as the cigars made there. The Dominican Republic is prized by many connoisseurs because of exactly this -- a rich, unique profile that enhances Dominican-grown cigars. That's in no small part due to the fertile soil and thriving climate of the region, which is ideal for tobacco growth and cultivation. If you've never tried a Dominican cigar, you're in for a real treat, there are some fantastic options out there.
The best Dominican cigars I've tried

Out of all the cigar guides I've put together so far, this one was one of the more interesting experiences for me. I had a great time trying out Dominican cigars, and I've definitely come away with an appreciation for blends made in the region. I'd also like to point out that Corey Suarez helped recommend some of these. If you haven't tried the JR Cigars or Cigars.com concierge service yet, you really should. Here's a little more about all of the best Dominican cigars I've tried:

The 12 best Connecticut cigars I’ve tried and tested in 2024
Best Connecticut cigars up close and personal

Connecticut cigars are the clear winner for smoking on a hot summer day, in the morning with some coffee, or when you just don't want a swift kick in the teeth (of pepper). There's no shortage of options, either. Connecticut shade wrappers are one of the most prevalent in the world of cigars, and it's certainly the most common natural shade. Maduro is also popular, but the two wrapper types couldn't be any more different. Connecticut wrappers, and by proxy Connecticut cigars, are typically mild to medium in strength and brimming with creamy, smooth flavors. They're composed of tobacco leaves grown in the Connecticut River Valley in the United States -- which is where the name Connecticut comes from. Consistent and flavorful, some of the best beginner-friendly cigars are Connecticut-wrapped, but you should never sell them short. A Connecticut shade cigar can be just as refined, elegant, and premium as any other. If you know where to look, you may even find some of your favorite blends in the category across a wide range of brands and cigar makers.

I'm about to take you on a magical, doughy, and delicious trek through the broad range of Connecticut cigars. In short, here are the best Connecticut cigars tried and tested by a genuine enthusiast of the craft: yours truly.
The best Connecticut cigars I've tried and tested
While the Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper is considered a Connecticut shade, I did my best to steer clear of recommending them for this list. They're better classified as a Maduro shade or darker cigar. That doesn't mean you should avoid them, quite the contrary. But for this list, I wanted to stick to smooth, relaxing smokes that are strong on flavor but not quite so strong on pepper and spice. I also tried not to choose a lot of repeats. If you see your favorite cigar missing, that might be because it was recommended on another list or it just didn't make the cut. If you have any recommendations of your own, I'm always available through social media or email. Without further ado, let's get this thing started.
