The head of a prestigious publication told me that statistics show that sales are higher when there is a picture of a person on the front cover. Obviously, who the person is makes a tremendous difference, but overall, a picture of a person creates some sort of connection that leads people to buy.

I am WAY behind on that series.  Maybe I should take that out of the library this week instead of the Yated.

Really?  I would have guessed a chocolate mousse cake.

True.  When I see posts from YitzyS, I immediately realize I'm about to hear from a fun-loving, mischievous, skinny boy, who's about 3 1/2 feet tall.

ETA: Still envision him that way, even if he's masquerading as a flag.

Good question!  How would you answer it?
It makes it quicker to associate a post to its author.

Thats why this https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HGA8N74/?tag=cl03f-20&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER puzzle is so hard. Although there is an abundant amount of text, sorting through the pieces is much easier when looking for colors as opposed to text.

Is Seal-K recognized as a kosher authority?

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seal-K
Looks legit, though for some reason I don’t see it listed with CRC

I was looking at countertops (another thread) and they were Seal-K. If they are kosher certified does that mean they can be kashered?

Never heard of a kosher certified countertop.
Do they also certify water?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

From Star-K: We have reviewed the manufacturing procedures and raw materials used in the production of DuPont Corian® Solid Surface, Corian® Endura and Corian® Quartz Surface (formally called Zodiaq®) kitchen countertops. These surfaces are certified kosher and are approved for use in kosher homes.

No. 
Depends what it's made of.

To be kashered it can't be plastic materials. 
If a small amount of the total is plastic does that matter?  :)
And now I sense this thread turning into another halachic debate ;D

Specifically men.
I understand if an article is about a winding road, and they want to show an image to convey just how winding the road is.  Or if it's about travel to the Maldives, which most people are unfamiliar with, so a picture helps them understand what it looks like. 

But pictures of men just show us that the man being discussed is a man.  What do we gain by viewing his particular eyes, nose, mouth, style of hair or of hat? 
More user engaging. If they were able to show woman they would show them too, but they can't show woman, so they just show men. Don't see how that's humanizing or dehumanizing.
