8 Back-To-School Essentials That Earn An A+

Whether your summer flew by way too fast (students, we know the feeling), or you can’t wait for the kids to be out of the house (we’re looking at you, parents), back-to-school season is unavoidably here. It’s a time to craft brand new academic goals, a time to redefine your style, a time to reconnect with familiar faces, and a time to make new friends.

Next Issue is filled with inspiring ideas to kick the year off right. We’ve put together a few of the top back-to-school basics for grade A parents and kids of all ages. To explore these items and more in the Next Issue app, just tap (+) to add each title to your library.

Back To School for Students

1. Pack for success: The latest and greatest backpacks and lunch boxes, perfect for carrying homework, textbooks, and delicious snacks from A to B every day. Find these and more in the September 2014 issue of Parents, “Pack It Up, Pack It In.”

2. Rule the playground: What little kid doesn’t love bold colors, cute cartoons, and crazy prints? These essential rain boots, cool kicks, and containers, all from the comprehensive “Back-To-School Gear Guide” in Today’s Parent, September 2014, are sure to make a statement all the way from the cafeteria line to the swing set and beyond.

3. Take charge of technology: We’re tempted to try out the impressive Asus Transformer Book. It’s a convertible tablet, so it’s lightweight and easy to carry to class, and just as effective when it comes to typing that research paper. Best of all? It’s just one of 20+ back-to-school bests of tech in the August 2014 issue of PC Magazine.

4. Transform your look: If you’re a fan of all things preppy, the Lacoste L!ve letterman jacket just might be your ideal outerwear. See where to get it, and other fashion collections from edgy to feminine to refined in the August 2014 issue of Teen Vogue’s “Back To School Style Spree.”

Back To School for Parents

1. Help them rise & shine: Straight from other parents in the special “It Worked For Me!” feature of Parents, September 2014. The Pop Clocky alarm is ideal for deep sleepers. The head actually pops off and starts bouncing around until it’s placed back on its stand!

2. Keep them organized: FamilyFun, September 2014 is packed with “25 Genius Ideas For A Super School Year.” Our favorite? A mobile supply station, allowing little ones to take control of where they want to work, and keeping all their supplies close at hand.

3. Keep yourself organized: Another winner from Parents, September 2014. These special Post-It-Notes are designed to be recognized by the Evernote app. Just snap a pic of any note, and the app will know just where to save it.

4. Pack the most-envied lunches in the cafeteria: With the September 2014 issue of Today’s Parent, not only were we getting inspired by endless creative lunch options, we were getting a little hungry ourselves. Learn to make easy wraps, baked treats, and hot meals to last throughout the week. Oh, and don’t miss out on the interactive Bento box page. We designed the car-shaped bento meal in the photo ourselves!

Best of luck in the school year to come! To see all your back-to-school essentials in one place, just open up the Next Issue app.

Snowden’s Tipping Point: What Led Me to Release the Largest Cache of Secrets in U.S. History


Despite hiding out for over a year in Moscow, location still unpinned by the CIA, Edward Snowden is dominating the newswires with brand new revelations.

In his first long-form interview with WIRED magazine, Snowden appears hugging the American flag (the very same flag that was used for Pamela Anderson’s cover of George magazine), proclaiming that he wishes nothing to detract from the movement he seeks to inspire.

Tap (+) in the Next Issue app to add WIRED to your library, and read the full story now—an interview that took journalist James Bamford nearly a year to arrange.

Here, the key events that transformed Edward Snowden from a young computer mastermind wishing to “do his part” for his country, to what some deem the dictionary definition of “traitor.” Be sure to scroll to the bottom for Snowden’s two newest disclosures, what he describes as his “final straw” before blowing the whistle.


Snowden had always been passionate about serving his country, coming from a family in which everyone worked for the federal government, and volunteering for the Army special forces at the height of the war in Iraq.


Snowden climbed the technology specialist ranks in the CIA, where he learned of moral shortcomings in field agents, mass surveillance programs, transmission of raw private data to Israel, and plans to blaspheme anti-government politicians.


Snowden witnessed examples of torture, wiretapping, and targeted drone killings in Iraq. He first considered whistle-blowing, but hoped the new President would turn things around. When Obama entered the White House, Snowden became even more certain of what he had to do.


Two NSA secrets tipped Snowden over the edge, released for the first time in the WIRED interview.

1) The U.S. government single-handedly caused an Internet outage in Syria while planting an exploit to monitor emails and Internet traffic, and never told a soul.

2) The NSA was working on a secret program titled MonsterMind, designed to block malware and automatically fire back at the perpetrating countries, without any human involvement.

Snowden decided to make the fateful flight to Hong Kong on May 20, 2013, secret-filled thumb drives stashed in his pockets. Read the full interview in Next Issue for more from the most wanted man in the world.

Is Tom Petty the Most Resilient Rock Legend of All Time?



At the ripe age of 63, Tom Petty has no intention of backing down. In fact, after almost 40 years in the business, he and The Heartbreakers just hit #1 on the Billboard 200 for the first time  

And the surprises keep coming.

In the August 2014 issue of Men’s Journal, Petty reflects on a childhood wrought with abuse, his reluctance to become a frontman, and life as a self-proclaimed “cranky hippie.”

In the August 14, 2014 issue of Rolling Stone, we learn even more about Petty’s stubborn resilience (I mean, really, pulling a switchblade during a record-label meeting?).

What’s most remarkable—at an age when Petty could easily bask in his already-outstanding achievements (16 studio albums, 6 of which went platinum), he’s taking to the tour circuit once again. As a concert junkie, I knew I had to see him live. Enjoy firsthand footage of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers at Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival in San Francisco.
