A fresh look for Globe Life Add to ...

Globe Life online is more than just daily news. It's a guide for how to Live Better.

That message from April 2007 (when we launched the Globe Life channel) is the same today as we unveil a new version of the site that offers the quality our readers expect from us, but adds more visually exciting and inspirational content in all areas.

You'll notice a dramatic facelift to our home page, designed to provide you with a friendlier, more graphically rich way to navigate the content.

The carousel at the top of our Life homepage serves up an array of articles, columns, videos, photo galleries and discussions from the various content areas: Health & Fitness, Food & Wine, Style, Travel and Family & Relationships.

In keeping with our mandate to provide you with timely news and views, we'll update this area frequently throughout the day, seven days a week. At any given time, you'll be able to rotate through a minimum 12 images, all of which will display at least three links for you to access related content.

Below are some of the new and revamped content you'll see on the site. It includes a new blog, 140 new videos and travel features.

The Hot Button Blog : This is what people are talking about, and what we think people should be talking about. It will allow us to jump immediately on the type of talking-point stories that we know can suddenly dominate public imagination and conversation.

Our "Basics" video series cover many aspects of daily life:

Fashion Basics: Celebrity stylist and fashion television show host Peter Papapetrou helps you add style to your everyday wardrobe.

Chef Basics: Cordon Bleu chef and cheese connoisseur Sue Riedl shows off her passion for cooking in this series of basic how-to videos.

Fitness Basics: Pro fitness trainer Kathleen Trotter puts you through your paces in simple, step-by-step fitness videos.

Beauty Basics: A "how-to" beauty series hosted by blogger and celebrity makeup artist Bahar Niramwalla.

Plus, wine expert Beppi Crosariol's Decanter videos on food and wine pairings, trends, cooking with wine and special occasion recommendations.

In travel, you'll find new features to help you plan your next vacation:

Family Travel: Features, articles and hotel reviews for all ages.

Cruise: Trends, tips and destinations.

Snow & Ski: Features, articles, hotel reviews and gear guide.

Beach & Sun: Hot destinations, travel trends and tips.

In addition to the above, you'll continue to enjoy news, views and reviews from our personalities and award-winning journalists.

We hope you enjoy our new site. Our journalists and cachet of celebrity personalities will continue to put a personal lens to the news of the day, decoding the latest social trends and offering advice and other practical information on how to get more out of life.
