What Every Mother Really Wants

Hello, America. Are you thinking about Mother’s Day? Feeling a tad guilty because the woman that merely gave you life has not yet merited a trip to the card store yet? Oh I know, you’re SO BUSY. Take it from this mom of three, keep your cards/flowers/chocolates. Momma wants a pharmaceutical, and I’m not suggesting showing up to Sunday brunch with a “J” in tow. (Noted exception; if you’re living in CO).

As for the rest of you, don’t be obtuse, I’m talking about taking a step into the time machine. Sigh. Work with me, please.

Before she was Your Mom, she was a smoking hot babe. And then YOU came along. With all the glories of weight gain, stretch marks and breastfeeding. The colic. The teething. The picky eater. And all before you could walk. So thanks for that hazing ritual, it sure kept things real. Real shitty.

Now that you’re sailing through adulthood, how do you intend to right your wrongs? Listen closely, let me whisper the magical salve that she craves; Botox.

Make an appointment for her with the dermatologist. Posthaste.

Accompany Mom to the doctor’s office full of bravado, engage in small talk with a medical assistant that undoubtedly attended a sub-par technician school (she’s nice enough), and have her succumb to needles. Willingly elect to have many needles full of Botulism injected into your MOTHER’S FACE. She will emerge looking rested, well — once the swelling subsides. This will undoubtedly make up for the teenage years. Maybe even the macabre tattoos on your forearm. Who knows? You could very well end up the favorite after all.

The kicker — you’ll pay for this privilege. A lot. My advice, don’t look for “a deal” when shopping around for injectables. Yes I know, I hate to pay retail too. Wholesale is actually a derivative word from Hebrew, meaning “don’t be a schmuck.” Sidenote: I am so grateful my parents sacrificed so much to send me to a Jewish day school. My math skills are remedial and my geography is strictly limited to former French colonies. I cannot locate Ohio. Alors.

I digress.

Despite my children trying to push me over the literal edge daily (we no longer hike), I refuse to succumb. REFUSE. And there is no reason why you should look like a hag either, the world needs more pretty. I could swear that’s a Beyonce song. It’s practically unpatriotic not to subscribe. What would Mom want? An Ameri-can or an Ameri-can’t? Thought so. Consumerism is very USA.

So a shout-out of appreciation from this Momma to Botox and big pharma for getting this anti-perspiration drug approved off-script by the FDA to prevent wrinkles. Sure, we’ve got Alzheimer’s, Heart Disease and Cancer. But, priorities people! Contrary to what you’ve read, these enterprises need to be celebrated for their foresight and vision. Your mother will thank me. Well, not “me” per se, but derivatively, there will be gratitude felt.

Friday Talking Points — Every Sulfurous Belch

OK, I fully admit I stole that title. Well, maybe not “stole,” since I’m about to give it proper credit, but it certainly wasn’t my own original idea. The line comes from George Will, and (of course) refers to Donald Trump. Part of the fun for Democrats this summer has been watching the angst of serious-minded conservative columnists as they realize how large a portion of the Republican base doesn’t really care what serious-minded conservatives inside the Beltway think about much of anything. Will was the best (but by no means only) example of this last week, as he started his column off with a real humdinger of an opening paragraph:


Every sulfurous belch from the molten interior of the volcanic Trump phenomenon injures the chances of a Republican presidency. After Donald Trump finishes plastering a snarling face on conservatism, any Republican nominee will face a dauntingly steep climb to reach even the paltry numbers that doomed Mitt Romney.

Ah, c’mon George… tell us how you really feel about Trump! Heh.

The entire Trump phenomenon reminds me of a basic rule from the world of magical/fantasy fiction. It’s not quite Asimov’s “three laws of robotics,” but it’s still been used my many authors who write about wizards casting dangerous spells. The rule of thumb among wizards? “Do not call up that which you cannot put down.” Don’t summon demons or otherworldly forces if you’re not strong enough to defeat them, in other words.

You can probably see where I’m going with this, in relation to Donald Trump. The Republican Party has called up a force of nature that it is, quite obviously, completely incapable of controlling or defeating. Hey, couldn’t have happened to a nicer political party! All those decades of dog-whistle language, coded references, and wink-wink-nudge-nudge that the Republican Party has benefited from are now coming home to roost.

George Will isn’t the only one freaking out by this new reality. Bill Kristol, who is famously always wrong about pretty much everything, wrote a column this week proposing eight or nine new candidates for the Republican presidential race (the most absurd: Samuel Alito). Because, obviously, seventeen is not enough. Frank Luntz, famous Republican pollster and spin doctor, held a focus group of Trump supporters which left him (according to his own statement) weak in the knees, with his legs all a-tremble.

Of course, not everyone is horrified at Trump’s success. He just picked up the endorsement of David Duke, for whatever that’s worth. Trump also tossed out Jorge Ramos from a press conference, and called two of his supporters “passionate” after they beat a homeless man with metal pipes, in support of Trump’s position on immigrants. All the while, Trump’s numbers continue to improve in the polls, where he’s now edging towards 30 percent of all Republican primary voters. If he manages to top 35 percent, then he may become absolutely unstoppable (much to serious-minded conservatives’ collective dismay).

Some Republicans are now even contemplating rigging the primary so Trump’s name doesn’t appear on their state’s ballots. As usual, when Republicans can’t win at the polls, their fallback position is to cheat. State-level party bigwigs in Virginia and North Carolina are considering taking this route, and South Carolina already has the rule the others are contemplating — every Republican candidate must sign a “loyalty oath” to support the party’s eventual nominee and not run as an independent in the general election, or their name doesn’t appear on the primary election ballot. Obviously, these sorts of pledges are utterly unenforceable, so it’ll be interesting to see how Trump plays it. But the mere fact that the state-level party honchos are even considering this sort of thing is an accurate measure of the desperation which exists among establishment Republicans right now.

Trump continues to roil the Republican waters on the immigration issue. The other GOP candidates are being exposed as complete cowards when it comes to reacting to Trump’s grand “ship them all home” plan. Scott Walker probably stumbled the worst, as he floundered around for days trying to figure out his stance on the Fourteenth Amendment. He was for changing it, against changing it, and tried to brush the entire question off; none of which made him seem even one tiny iota presidential.

Jeb! Bush thought he might tap into some of the Trump anger by tossing around the term “anchor babies,” which was almost as spectacular a failure as Walker’s vacillation. Jeb! then tried to explain that anchor babies were really more of an Asian problem, thereby offending two minority demographics at once. Boy, it’s fun to watch the Republican “minority outreach” effort in action, isn’t it? As George Will so accurately predicted (most especially on Latino and Asian vote percentages), Republicans “face a dauntingly steep climb to reach even the paltry numbers that doomed Mitt Romney.” Jeb! also (you just cannot make this stuff up, folks!) marked the ten-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina by releasing a new ad this week showing Jeb! standing right next to Mike “Heckuva Job” Brown, the disgraced former head of FEMA who fiddled while New Orleans drowned. As the image is shown, Bush intones: “We have the best emergency response team on the ground, in the country, and in the world.” Heckuva job, Brownie!

Over on the Democratic side of the race, there was an explosion of interest in a new candidate that might be labeled “Bidenpalooza.” Joe’s obviously seriously considering a run, and the Wall Street Journal even reported he is currently leaning towards throwing his hat in the ring. Don’t expect an announcement any time soon, though, as Biden says he’ll make a decision by the end of next month.

Bernie Sanders got a front-page story in the New York Times this week. Of course, being the mainstream media and all, it was a total hit piece full of the snarkiest language possible. It absolutely ignored Bernie’s entire message and platform (of course), and absolutely refused to analyze why so many people are flocking to support him. Cornel West just endorsed Bernie’s candidacy this week, but very few political reporters noticed, since it doesn’t fit in with their “only white liberals support Sanders” go-to storyline.

That’s enough from the campaign trail for one week. In other fun news, the oldest message-in-a-bottle ever was returned to its sender recently, after a journey of more than a century. A British scientific group sent out a thousand postcards in bottles from 1904 through 1906, to study the currents in the North Sea. A couple just found one on a German island, and sent the postcard back to the group (which still exists). The Marine Biological Association made good on the century-old promise on the card, and sent a reward of one old shilling to the couple for returning the postcard. I don’t really have any reason for including this story, but it did make me smile, in an otherwise Trump-filled week. Maybe Sting or The Police can write a song about it, or something!

 

Most Impressive Democrat of the Week

We’re changing the title of this award this week, because they’re not technically Democrats. So we’re handing out the Most Impressive Activist Group Of The Week to Neighborhood Legislature, for their amusing and entirely appropriate political theater in California. From the story:


A group of protesters in California took a stand against the influence of money in politics Wednesday by imagining what it would look like if lawmakers had to publicly advertise their campaign donors on their clothes à la professional stock car drivers.

The protesters placed cardboard cutouts of all 120 California state lawmakers and Gov. Jerry Brown (D) in front of the state capitol in Sacramento. Each legislator wore the logos of the corporations that back them in the style of NASCAR drivers’ brand-filled uniforms.

The photos alone are worth clicking that link to see.

We’ve long been an advocate of this idea, although we certainly can’t claim to have thought it up ourselves. As far back as FTP [189] (scroll down to Talking Point 7), we’ve been big fans of plastering donor logos on congresscritters and other politicians. If America is going to be run by bribery, the least we should be able to do is see who is forking over all that money to buy the politicians!

For taking this idea and running with it, and for an absolute brilliant piece of political theater, the Neighborhood Legislature is hereby awarded the Most Impressive Activist Group Of The Week. This is one of those ideas we truly wish would go viral, on a national level.

[Congratulate Neighborhood Legislature on their official webpage, to let them know you appreciate their excellent stunt.]

 

Most Disappointing Democrat of the Week

Before we get to the main award, we do have one (Dis-)Honorable Mention this week, for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, for waging a silly war on boobies. Laws banning topless women from appearing in public were changed a while back in New York, and some enterprising women are using their newfound right to bare their breasts in Times Square. Among the people dressed in Elmo suits or dressed as Captain America, there are now women wearing nothing but a thong and body paint. All of these folks are there for the same reason: to separate the tourists from their money. Charging ten bucks (or whatever the traffic will bear) to appear in a photo has long been a tradition in Times Square, so this is really nothing new.

Now, Times Square does have an even older history of being a sex district with triple-X theaters and whatnot, which was all cleaned up (so as not to scare the tourists) a while back. In other words, Bill de Blasio wanting to ban topless women from Times Square isn’t happening in a vacuum. He doesn’t want a return to the “bad old days,” but at the same time he seems to be overreacting to the perceived problem. If Hizzoner truly does want to end this practice, there’s really only one acceptable way to do so: change the law back. Ban boobies everywhere. This, however, might be a political problem for him.

In fact, the whole fracas really nothing short of knee-jerk “Won’t someone think of the children!!!” overreach. You know what? I bet children who see a painted lady’s chest won’t actually be as traumatized as all the pearl-clutchers think. Bill de Blasio should have stayed out of this fight, which is why he earns a (Dis-)Honorable Mention this week.

But, for the second week in a row, Hillary Clinton is the recipient of our Most Disappointing Democrat Of The Week this week. Clinton, like all presidential candidates these days, is struggling to be heard among the thousands of “Did you hear what Trump just said?” stories. So she apparently thought she’d use some shocking language of her own, and compared her political opponents to terrorists, because (by her logic) they both treat women badly.

Where to begin? First, there are hard lines in politics that should never be crossed. You don’t call someone a traitor, for instance, under any circumstances short of them being legally accused of actually selling the country out. Another of these rules is that you don’t call a political opponent a terrorist. Clinton crossed that line, almost flippantly.

Did Clinton have a point to make? Yes she did. Planned Parenthood and abortion are about to be the focus of an enormous political battle in Washington — one that might even result in another government shutdown. The battle has already been joined, and it is going to get fierce next month. Clinton was jumping in to this fray in an admirable fashion, rather than waiting on the sidelines and mouthing vague platitudes. She’s always been a champion for women’s rights, so it is entirely within her wheelhouse.

Even so, Clinton went too far. This is American politics, folks, and terrorist groups aren’t a part of it. The Taliban is not on any American ballot, to put it another way. While there are indeed many groups and countries around the world with horrendous records on women’s rights, it really has no bearing on domestic politics.

A final point: almost all American politicians are gigantic flaming hypocrites on the issue of women’s rights around the world, including not only Hillary Clinton but everyone else running for the presidency as well. If we really want to get up on our high horse about the way the Islamic State treats women, then it would require us (if we’re not going to be gigantic flaming hypocrites) to immediately suspend all ties with Saudi Arabia. The Saudis execute people by publicly beheading them, after all, and women in their country are not even allowed to do simple things like driving on their own. They’re about to have an election where — for the first time ever — women will be allowed to vote. If our gold standard for who America remains friends with is that women’s rights be respected, then our relationship with Saudi Arabia would be the first to go. If Hillary Clinton — or anyone else for that matter — speaks disparagingly about how terrorists treat women, then we would really like to hear someone ask her what her Saudi policy would be.

So for multiple reasons, Hillary linking her political opponents with terrorists was more than a little disappointing. Just because Trump is sucking all the oxygen out of the room right now does not mean Democrats should be stooping to his level (or even lower). Clinton can fight for women’s rights as fervently as possible without making such odious comparisons. She needs to back down on this one, but for now it has earned her another Most Disappointing Democrat Of The Week award.

[Hillary Clinton is a private citizen, and our longstanding policy is not to provide contact information for candidate websites, so you’ll have to search her contact info out yourself, sorry.]

 

Friday Talking Points

Volume 359 (8/28/15)

It’s still the Silly Season in Washington, so we don’t have a whole lot of substantive political talking points this week. When Congress returns, we’re in for a number of high-profile fights, but until then we’re just making do with what we’ve got. Just to warn everyone in advance.

 

1
   Making America Grate

Every so often, we are so struck by a clever turn of phrase that we have to give it a standalone talking point. This is one of those times, as Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post ran an article this week under the best headline we’ve yet seen to describe the Trump phenomenon — a play on Trump’s own campaign slogan. It’s a cheap pun, but that doesn’t make it any less funny:


How Donald Trump Makes America Grate

 

2
   From denial to anger

This framing of the Trump situation is likely going to appear again and again, but Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post gets credit for being the first to point it out.

“The Republican Party seems to be destined to go through the classic ‘five stages of grief’ as they come to grips with Donald Trump’s success. Most establishment Republicans are still in the first stage, denial. Some have already moved on to anger — the second stage. I mean, did you read George Will’s ‘every sulfurous belch’ column this week? The third stage is going to be problematic, since it is bargaining — and Trump is a notoriously tough bargainer. This will inevitably lead to depression, and sooner or later to the final stage, acceptance. You might call it the grief of watching the Republican Party die, right in front of their eyes.”

 

3
   Strong growth

This is one to hit Jeb! with, in particular.

“Jeb Bush is running on a promise to achieve four percent growth in America’s economy. I wonder if he saw the most recent numbers, which showed the economy grew 3.7 percent in the second quarter of this year? Seems like President Obama’s doing almost as well as what Bush is promising, which reminds me of Mitt Romney’s promise to get unemployment down to six percent before 2016. Remember that one? Obama managed to achieve that in about half the time Romney promised. Seems like Republicans can’t even promise they’ll handle the American economy as well as Democrats routinely do in the real world.”

 

4
   $ 200 million and counting

Data to use in other state-level legalization fights.

“Colorado and Washington have so far taken in over two hundred million dollars in marijuana tax revenue. We don’t yet have data for Alaska and Oregon, but you can bet they’re raking in millions as well. By legalizing recreational marijuana use, these states have turned a big drag on their state budgets — policing, prisons, clogged courtrooms, and all the rest of it — into a huge asset. I’m sure there are other state governments out there who are paying attention. The success of legalization continues to benefit the states which have implemented it. $ 200 million ain’t exactly pocket change.”

   President Barack Obama Highway

This is going to be lots of fun for Democrats, for years to come.

“I see that Riviera Beach, Florida just voted to change the name of a road from ‘Old Dixie Highway’ to ‘President Barack Obama Highway.’ Personally, I can’t think of a better way to get rid of institutionalized racist memorials than to rename them after the first African-American president. In fact, I would bet that after Obama’s term in office ends, there will be a lot more things named after him all across America. Call it the revenge of Democrats after the orgy of naming so many things after Ronald Reagan a few years back.”

   Maybe Amazon will step in

This one is pretty funny.

“Among the many creative uses of drone aircraft we can now add their use to deliver banned things inside prison walls. An attempt was made in Maryland recently to fly in some drugs and pornography aboard a drone. While this attempt was foiled, it seems such an obvious use of new technology that we’ll likely see more and more of these attempts in the near future. How exactly are the cops going to keep the skies over prisons clear of drones? Skeet shooting?”

 

7
   Jade Helm invasion a total flop

This qualifies as rubbing salt in the wound, really.

“I notice that the predicted invasion of Texas by the United States military seems not to have materialized. It wasn’t so long ago that the Texas governor was issuing dire warnings of the nefarious intent of America’s own military in carrying out an exercise called ‘Jade Helm 15,’ which did nothing but stoke paranoid delusions within the state. Well, the summer’s drawing to a close and I still haven’t seen one headline about the Army taking over Texas, or confiscating everyone’s guns, or rounding up its citizens for concentration camps, or any of the rest of the nonsense the rightwingers were spouting not so long ago. If Jade Helm really was a planned invasion of Texas, I have to say it’s been a total flop so far.”

What Every Successful Person Knows, But Never Says

Ira Glass is the host and executive producer of the popular National Public Radio show, This American Life.

Each week, This American Life is broadcast to more than 1.7 million listeners across 500 different radio stations. For Glass, who is featured in almost every episode, the show has led to a wide range of opportunities including book deals, feature films, and appearances on popular television shows.

Of course, it wasn’t always that way.

What Every Successful Person Knows, But Never Says

Glass started out at NPR as a 19-year-old intern. The next decade was filled with a lot of hard work and very little payoff as he worked as a reporter.

Fifteen years into his career, Glass finally began co-hosting his first show, which was called The Wild Room. The show was his idea, but Glass would later describe it by saying “one show would be horrible and two shows would be decent.” The Wild Room aired during a particularly unpopular Friday evening slot and in Glass’ words “it deserved its time slot.”

After struggling through two years of The Wild Room, Glass finally pitched the idea for This American Life and received meager funding to get it started. Over 15 years and millions of listeners later, the rest is history.

But here’s the part that I find really interesting.

Check out how Ira Glass describes his long struggle to create something noteworthy:

From Ira Glass:

Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, and I really wish somebody had told this to me.

All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But it’s like there is this gap. For the first couple years that you’re making stuff, what you’re making isn’t so good. It’s not that great. It’s trying to be good, it has ambition to be good, but it’s not that good.

But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is good enough that you can tell that what you’re making is kind of a disappointment to you. A lot of people never get past that phase. They quit.

Everybody I know who does interesting, creative work they went through years where they had really good taste and they could tell that what they were making wasn’t as good as they wanted it to be. They knew it fell short. Everybody goes through that.

And if you are just starting out or if you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Do a huge volume of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week or every month you know you’re going to finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you’re going to catch up and close that gap. And the work you’re making will be as good as your ambitions.

I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It takes awhile. It’s gonna take you a while. It’s normal to take a while. You just have to fight your way through that.
–Ira Glass

If you’d like to hear Glass say it himself, listen to the audio clip below.

The Thing That Got You Into The Game

We all have reasons for being pulled to the things we love.

When he was just a 19-year-old intern, Ira Glass had a taste for journalism and storytelling. He knew what good journalism looked like when it was done well. But it took him 17 years of work before he could start to do it well himself. And, as he says above, that was frustrating.

I think you and I face a similar type of battle.

  • Spend a year or two in the gym and you’ll start to recognize good technique, even if your own could use some work. This is something I’m struggling with right now. I know a great clean and jerk when I see one, but when I grab hold of the bar it’s still hard for me to pull it off.
  • Start writing consistently and you’ll begin to take notice when you read great work. But good luck trying to produce your own brilliant words. In the beginning, it can be difficult just to get something on the page. And even when you can hammer out sentences, young writers quickly learn that all words aren’t created equal. Even with consistent writing each week, I still feel like I fail to produce something of note.
  • Watch a dozen TED Talks and you’ll be able to point out what you like and don’t like about certain presenters, but jump up on stage yourself and the difficulty of captivating an audience — even for a minute or two — becomes quite apparent.

And so it goes for virtually any skill. There is always a gap between being an apprentice and being a craftsman. The apprentice has the taste, but not the skill. The craftsman has the taste and the skill.

It’s easier to recognize beauty than it is to create it. You’re good enough to know that what you’re doing isn’t good, but not good enough to produce something great. When you find yourself in this frustrating limbo, the challenge is to never forget what got you there in the first place. Remember that thing that got you into the game.

Your love. Your passion. Your taste. That’s the reason you’re here. You still belong, even if you don’t feel like it right now. Your taste can be killer even if your ability is questionable.

Commit to the process and you’ll become good enough, soon enough. Put in a volume of work. Close the gap.

What to Do Next

Developing skills that are as good as your taste comes down to habits. The ability to “fight your way through” as Glass says, hinges on your consistency to show up and do the work. Can you build the habits required to make small improvements day after day?

I don’t claim to have all the answers, but my hope is that I can help a little bit. I’ve spent the last year writing and researching the science of habit formation. Much of what I have learned (including strategies for becoming more consistent and improving your performance) is covered in my free 46-page guide called Transform Your Habits. It’s available for free to anyone who subscribes to my weekly newsletter.

This Comic Captures The Two Types Of People In Every Relationship

In any relationship, there are two kinds of people: the one who orders the side of fries and the one who claims he or she doesn’t want any, and then promptly goes to town as soon as it arrives. 

Cartoonist Adrienne Hedger of Hedger Humor self-identifies as the second type. 

“I never order French fries because I think I don’t want all those fries,” she told The Huffington Post. “So I just tell my husband, ‘I’ll have a taste of yours.’ And in the moment, that’s my honest intention. Just a few — maybe five — fries. And the next thing you know, you’ve eaten half the fries.” 

Hedger recently created a hilariously relatable comic that captures this all-too-common dynamic. Check it out below:

15 Productions Every Entrepreneur Must See!

Movies are magical. The good ones hold you captive in a great story, to a different time and place, and then bring you back home. In two hours, they leave you changed, having learned new things and lived a different life. I am a movie buff. I love how a good film can introduce you to a fictional world and in many cases teach you about your own life.

In that spirit, here’s a list of my top 15 films that have entrepreneurship and business as central themes. Not only are they incredibly entertaining, they teach values important to anyone doing business. Every entrepreneur–from aspiring to longtime business-owners–will find new clues for, tips about, and snapshots into the trials and tribulations of owning your own business.

1. Jerry Maguire (1996). Tom Cruise plays the lead agent in this story, who gets fired from his company for writing a memo on ethics. He is inspired to start his own business with his secretary and goes through all the woes and thrills of start-up. It is perhaps one of the best portrayals of these stresses, and many have learned significant lessons in starting up from Jerry.

2. It’s a Wonderful Life (1946). Incredibly, when this film first came out in post-WWII America, it was widely panned. Today, it is considered a classic; and many call it one of the greatest films of all time. This film, like none other, reveals the emotional depths of business ownership, by depicting the main character at a suicidal low as he prepares to lose his beloved Building and Loan.

3. TenNineEight (2009). This powerful documentary follows low-income students around the country in their efforts to enter the national business competition run by NFTE every year in New York City. The movie features some of the greatest interviews of young entrepreneurs ever done and innumerable business lessons.

4. High Noon (1953). A classic Western, this film does not work directly with themes of business and entrepreneurship. Instead, its central storyline gets to the heart of good business: integrity and doing the right thing. One scene in particular stands out: newlyweds Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly are fleeing the town when Cooper has to turn around to defend the town from bandits. This is one of the finest cinematic portrayals of integrity; the kind of integrity every entrepreneur must strive to have.

5. Other People’s Money (1991). This is a wonderful and entertaining movie. Danny DeVito does a great job playing Larry the Liquidator–and I have never seen such a spot-on discussion of debt and equity on film. A powerful look into this world.

6. Skater Dater (1965). A silent documentary about skateboarders in Southern California, it is my personal favorite. At first glance, it has no business connection but the values radiate: teamwork, cooperation, and striving for best effort. Even though you probably have not heard of it, this 17-minute-flick won many awards around the world and the young actress in it went on to become a famous photographer within the industry. Best part? You can watch it any time on youtube.

7. The Doug Flutie Pass (1984). This is not a film but a minute long-clip that can be accessed around the world. It shows Boston College leading their fight over Miami–Doug Flutie and his roommate had practiced the play in their minds hundreds of times. It is a great example of the power of the subconscious. They envisioned the future, created this moment, and then executed it superbly at a pivotal moment.


2015-08-20-1440110028-4508995-Flutie.jpg

8. & 9. Godfather I (1972) and Godfather II (1974). While these films glorify crime and transform criminals into heroes in an unforgivable way, the story development and scenes illustrate so many lessons in business. I recommend that every entrepreneur to study these films to clarify issues of integrity, values, negotiations and strategy.

10. Working Girl (1988). Perhaps one of the greatest business movies of all time, it tells the struggle of a young female executive as she fights for fair treatment in the corporate world. It gives us numerous insights into human behavior and gender issues in business. This one is an absolute must-see!

11. Wall Street (1987). Michael Douglas’s infamous speech in this 1980s classic gets right at the center of greed in business. While ingenious and honest, it does misrepresent the fact that many entrepreneurs operate in ways that can lead to both long-term profits and personal satisfaction, along with the ability to change society forever. It is still worth watching with many great lessons and the opportunity for critique.

12. Risky Business (1983). This is Cruise’s breakthrough film, which follows his character along a true entrepreneurial journey. He identifies a market–although an inappropriate one–and begins his business. The negotiations are very well done, and the ambiguity and stress of running a business come through strong–these are two hallmarks of entrepreneurship.


2015-08-20-1440110048-6315610-RB.jpg

13. Up in the Air (2009). This might be George Clooney’s greatest film. It shows a painful point in business, through which every entrepreneur must go: adjusting your costs by lowering your headcount. From my own experience, I know that if you are not willing to do that and to learn to do it in a kind and passionate way, your business won’t last long. Markets go up and down–and your costs will always have to adapt to the market.

14. Pursuit of Happyness (2006). This is an incredibly inspiring true story that will speak to anyone who has known both the curses and the blessings of trying to make it in business–even when it seems every door closes in your face. A true story that follows an entrepreneurial spirit portrayed by Will Smith, as he sacrifices and loses everything for his business dream. Later a chance encounter leads him to an internship at a brokerage, and in the end, to owning his own firm.


2015-08-20-1440110070-1128137-GGGR.jpeg

The tension and stress of sales–and how not to succeed in sales–from Glengarry, Glen Ross (source)

15. Glengarry, Glen Ross (1992). No film since this one has illustrated basic sales concepts more clearly. Based on the famous Mamet play, most of the film shows you how not to do it. The brutal honesty in many of its scenes and the genius of the acting will provide many lessons in starting a business.

I hope this list of films and clips will help you; I urge every entrepreneur to watch these, and to study their lessons.

What Every Woman Should Know About Looking Better in Clothes

“Your sleeve is a 26,” Zac Posen tells me as he prods at the arm of my blazer. “Actually, 25 3/4.”

We’re perched in a back corner of his atelier for a photo-shoot fitting. Together we’ve decided that I’ll wear a shapely skirt suit, and though it’s my size—a 12—it does not fit. The skirt is so tight it won’t zip up. The jacket fits in the shoulders but drowns out my waist. And the mermaid shape is so snug I can’t walk at all. As you can imagine, I’m embarrassed—and briefly consider running for the door.

Lauren-Chan-Zac-Posen

But Posen is unfazed. In fact, he’s already remeasuring so he can tell where to pin, let out, and take in the garments. “Alterations,” he tells me, “are the game changer when it comes to the perfect fit.” And once he’s done, voila: The skirt zips, the jacket accommodates, and I can move. “The right tailoring can make any garment work for any body,” says Posen. “And it can make you feel confident—especially when, these days, a lot of clothing is two-dimensional, but in real life every body is different, and women have curves.”

As a size 12, those words hit home for me. I often feel left out by fashion: In a standard size range, a 12 is regularly too tight; in a plus-size range, even the smallest 14 is too wide. I’ve learned to shop around this conundrum, but I’m still left standing in a fitting room feeling defeated more than I’d like to admit. And I’m not alone. Women of many body types struggle to fit properly into clothing—so let’s do something about it! Isn’t it time we stop trying to fit into our clothes and have our clothes fit us instead? Here are a few suggestions on how to start:

Step One: Ignore Your Size
That’s right—ignore. Sizes vary between countries, companies, and even articles of clothing. The U.S. government has been attempting to fix this problem via regulation since the 1940s, but instead, the situation has actually gotten worse, with the arrival of vanity sizing—in which bigger garments are tagged with smaller numbers to entice customers (that’s why the 00 now exists). “The mentality that the lowest size is best needs to go out the window,” says plus-size model and fashion designer Candice Huffine. “It’s just a number that somebody made up”

Her advice? “Try on several sizes, bigger and smaller,” she says. “Some people have tag phobia: They don’t want to buy a bigger size because of the number on the label. If you care about that, cut the tags out when you get home!”

Step Two: Shop for Your Biggest Part
It’s an easy truth that changes everything: Buy an item to fit the widest part of your body and take the rest of the garment in. That means no more jackets that gape open and muffin-top-inducing jeans. (Amen!)

“I’m a fan of blazers,” says Huffine. “But when I find one that fits through my shoulders and bust, the waist is often too big. I buy for my broadest part, then create an hourglass by taking in the midsection.”

So what does this mean for your shape? If you’re pear-shaped, buy to fit your bottom and take in elsewhere. “I have a small waist and bigger hips,” says celebrity stylist Sara Paulsen, who’s worked with Mindy Kaling. “I often wear A-line and flounce-hem skirts, which balance my proportions. I buy to fit my hip, then take the waist in—I sometimes even nip a fitted skirt right under the butt to create a flattering curve.”

If you’re muscular, the widest part of your body may be your shoulders and biceps. “I tend to have to fit my arms in jackets and take the body in,” says Hannah Bronfman, the founder of fitness site HBfit.com. “I always buy a size larger and make adjustments.”

Height can also make it more difficult to wear off-the-rack clothing. “It’s really hard for short girls to wear midi skirts,” says celebrity stylist Kate Young—whose clients include Selena Gomez and Natalie Portman. “They make you look shorter. Either go maxi—to the floor—or have the hem taken up above the knee.”

Tall women face the opposite dilemma. “Finding clothes that really fit my body has been a lifelong struggle,” says cover girl and denim designer Karlie Kloss. “Growing up, I found that if pants were long enough, they were much too big; if they fit in the waist, they were way too short.” If that sounds like you, buy a length that fits and have a tailor adjust the waist—or look to the solution Kloss herself invented, a Frame Denim line with 40-inch inseams. (Hudson Jeans and the Gap also offer extended lengths.)

Runway-for-bodies

Step Three: Master E-Shopping
When shopping online, it helps to know your bust, waist, and hip measurements; most sites translate their sizes into those numbers. Also, consider brands that take fit into account: Rent the Runway shares photos of customers in each item (with their honest reviews), so you can see how a piece works on a variety of shapes and sizes. There are also companies that help with fitting woes; True Fit, for example, works with brands like Jason Wu and Marc Jacobs to generate suggestions based on your sizes, previous purchases, and its own e-commerce database.

Step Four: Make Your Alterations
The next step is the all-important nipping and tucking. Find a good tailor by asking a trusted boutique, department store, or dry cleaner in your area for a recommendation. If you’re technologically inclined, try in-home tailoring services like Mend and zTailors. Here are a few things a tailor will be able to do to your garments:

  • Create your shape and size. Generally, you can hem or take a seam in as much as four inches; any more will throw the look of the garment off. And ask your tailor to follow the lines of your body. “If you’re working with a dress or jacket, fit the shape of your back,” says Posen. “It’s curved, not a straight line!”
  • Make more room. “People tend to think that you can only make stuff smaller, but you can make things a little bigger too,” says Young. “If a dress is hugging a bit, you can often find some room in the zipper or the side seam to let out.” You can also cut a slit or vent in a dress.
  • Find the right length. “With skinny pants, you can wear any heel height, since the hem should grace the top of the shoe,” says Young. For wide-leg pants, which should hit the floor, “buy two pairs and have one altered to wear with flats and one to wear with heels.” If you buy only one, hem it to work with the heel height you wear most often.
  • Streamline your silhouette. A tailor can close up pockets in a pair of pants,
  • add hook-and-eye closures between gaping buttons on a shirt, or create darts under the bust or in the back of a top to create cleaner lines. If you always tuck in shirts, remove the bottom few buttons so they don’t show under clothes.

Step Five: Consider Custom-Made
Still unsatisfied? Look into made-to- measure clothing, either from a tailor or via sites like eShakti and small boutiques on Etsy. It can be expensive (shirts start at around $ 100, and a full suit can run upwards of $ 1,500) but worth it, at least for frequently worn items. “Custom-made clothing is economical,” argues Posen. “If you take good care of them, your garments can last for a long time.”

Huffine’s made-to-measure must is a cocktail dress—like the Sophie Theal- let she wore to this year’s Pirelli calendar launch. “I needed to wear a bra and I wanted to wear Spanx, so she designed around that,” she says. “In the end, the gown was something I knew I would be comfortable and feel like myself in.”

And that, of course, is the point. The outfit I reach for when I want to feel like my best self? You guessed it: Posen’s expertly tailored skirt suit. With it on, I stand taller, smile bigger, and behave more confidently. “We need to stop letting fashion make us uncomfortable,” says Huffine. “When something is tailored to fit you perfectly, it takes all worry away. Your garment isn’t fighting against you—it’s working with you.”

So the next time you’re standing in the fitting room, remember: It’s not you that needs to be altered. It’s your clothes.

11 Things Every Fashion Lover Has in Her Closet

Whether you’re the type of fashion lover who’s always wearing heels or the type that practically lives in jeans, there are some commonalities between you and the rest of your shopaholic sisters. After hours spent shopping and even more time putting outfits together and thinking about what to wear, there’s a lot of stuff and emotion hidden behind those closet doors.

04-rom-com-halloween-costumes-sex-and-the-city

1. A serious sale buy.
It might not fit or be in style any more, but you got such a good deal on it that there’s no way you’re giving it up.

2. One category with at least three options.
The exact section that’s over-stuffed will depend on your particular weak spot. Whether it’s a penchant for striped shirts, little white dresses, or basic gray t-shirts, you’ve got the beginnings of a collection.

3. Something you know you spent too much money on.
You’re willing to admit you overspent. But it was too perfect/special/insanely wonderful to not buy, even if it blew your budget.

4. An uncomfortable pair of shoes.
The very thought of putting them on might make your feet ache, but they’re too gorgeous to give up.

5. Something that’s off-season.
It belongs in the totally opposite sort of weather than what’s currently happening outside your window, but it was too good of a find to pass up. Until the right season rolls around, it’ll be nice and safe sitting in your closet.

6. The perfect cocktail dress.
Whether it’s one you’ve worn a dozen times or a brand new buy, it’s ready in case a last-minute invite comes your way.

7. A flea market find makes everyone jealous.
Whether you found it at a hole-in-the-wall vintage place, a consignment store, or your grandmother’s closet, it was the score of a century and every one of your friends has trouble hiding their jealousy.

8. Something with a memory attached.
As a fashion-lover, you connect special events with what you were wearing. It might have been the dress you wore on the first date with someone special or a blouse you had on when you interviewed for your dream job, but either way, it has to stay.

9. Certain pieces you’re positive you’ll wear. Some day.
That old advice about tossing stuff that hasn’t been worn in a year is lost on you. As a fashion addict, you’ve got at least one piece that you haven’t actually worn yet, but there’s always tomorrow.

10. Seen-better-days basics.
When you love shopping, it’s tempting to focus all your discretionary budget on the fun stuff. Why bother replacing your basic tanks and tights when there are new trends to play with?

11. The one piece your friends always borrow.
With style like yours, you’re the one people are always ask for a fashionable loan. As such, at any given time your closet is short a dress, bag, or pair of shoes.

25 Waterfalls Every Nature Lover Should Visit Before They Die

There’s something about falling water that enchants us humans. Whether it’s the smooth sheets of a long-exposure photograph or the raging waters of a moment captured in all its power, one thing’s for sure: we. love. waterfalls.

This week, our love of falling water sent us on a quest to find 25 of the most beautiful, most diverse, and most amazing waterfalls on the globe. A list that we think is worthy of the “before you die” classification. A list that every nature lover should add to their bucket list.

We’re not sure if we pulled it off, but after days of scouring the Internet and reading more “Top 10″ and “Top 20″ and “Most Beautiful” lists than we care to count, we’ve come up with a list of our own. Below are the 25 waterfalls we think EVERY nature should visit before they die, accompanied by beautiful photos captured by the 500px community.

1. Angel Falls

2. Yosemite Falls

3. Gullfoss

4. Victoria Falls

5. Niagara Falls

6. Fairy Falls

7. Iguazu Falls

8. Plitvice Falls

9. Manawaiopuna Falls

10. Havasu Falls

11. Rhine Falls

12. Multnomah Falls

13. Soca River Falls

14. Kaieteur Falls

15. Sutherland Falls

16. Nohkalikai Falls

17. Seljalandsfoss

18. Langfoss

19. Torc Waterfall

20. Burney Falls

21. McWay Falls

22. Skogafoss

23. Pearl Shoal Waterfall

24. Kawasan Falls

25. Detian Falls

Keep in mind that our initial shortlist had 46 waterfalls listed! Iceland alone had 6 contenders and the Pacific Northwest has enough to keep you busy for weeks. Cutting down to a final 25 was painful and difficult, and chances are good that any waterfall you think should have made the list but didn’t was considered.

Still, let us know in the comments if you think we left out a must-see waterfall. Bonus points if you’ve got your own photo of that waterfall on 500px!

And if you just want to browse more beautiful waterfall imagery from the 500px community, give this link a click and forget about getting anything else done the rest of the day.

Five Easy Summer Work Outfits for Every Day of the Week

If you find the act of getting dressed for work during the summer to be the worst, allow us to be of service. We’ve put together five fail-safe summer outfit idea formulas that you can use for everyday of the week. Thanks to these stylish ladies, you’ll no longer have to stand in front of your closet wondering just what the heck you’re going to wear to the office.

work-outfit-formula-belted-shirt-dress-wedges-1Monday: A button-down dress + skinny belt + wedges. You’re most likely in #strugglemode on the first day of the week, so make getting dressed for the office as easy as possible. Go with a button-down shirt dress cinched at the waist and heels that aren’t too high.

work-outfit-formula-TJ-shorts-blazer-blouseTuesday: A blazer + tailored shorts + pumps. By this time you’ve shaken off the sleepy vibes of Monday and have your style sea legs under you. Put together an outfit that says, “I actually tried,” like a blazer, frilly blouse, a pair of tailored shorts, and sharp pumps.

work-outfit-ideas-formula-TJ-jane-keltner-de-valle2Wednesday: A silk blouse + A-line skirt + ankle-strap sandals. Celebrate Hump Day (and the beginning of the end of the week) in an outfit that looks like it took way longer to put together than it actually did. Might we suggest a silky blouse, a structured skirt, and ankle-strap sandals.

work-outfit-formula-t-shirt-dressy-a-line-skirt2Thursday: A T-shirt + knee-length skirt. Get away with wearing a T-shirt at the office with the help of a fancy knee-length skirt. Now you’re dressed for both a meeting with the boss and happy hour drinks with friends.

work-outfit-idea-formula-TJ-culottes-cropped-summer-sweater2Friday: Culottes + a crop top + heels. You’ve made it! The end of the week calls for comfort—culottes and a cropped summer sweater should do the trick. Add heels for an after-work dinner and drinks date with your love.

7 Wedding Gown Shopping Mistakes That Every Bride-to-Be Makes

Shopping for a wedding gown is one of the most exciting experiences you’ll likely have in your life. But, like any crucial task, it’s rife with the possibility of error.

The blunders I’m talking about, however, have little to do with the type of dress you buy (the shape, the style, and so on) and more to do with the overall process, which can be quite overwhelming. (This shopping excursion will be unlike any you’ve had before!)

While some of the following mistakes may sound like they could be avoided simply by having some common sense, I have often found common sense to be in fact the least common of the senses. Especially when you’re in the midst of wedding planning.

Since you already have so much on your mind by the time you’re ready to try on some gowns, here’s my advice for making your shopping experience as smooth as possible–and some insider tips on how to avoid the biggest mistakes brides make while trying to find their dream dresses.

1. Not wearing great undergarments. Certainly, you won’t purchase your wedding undergarments before you’ve chosen a gown, but you do need excellent support for the gowns you’re trying on to look great. (And if you are not sample size, as most women are not, an ill-fit will be exacerbated without them.) A well-fitting strapless bra is often key.

You also will be in and out of the gowns for at least 30 to 60 minutes and in-between you may stand there in nothing but your skivvies. So your undergarments should at least be clean and without tears.

2. Not wearing deodorant. I’m going to be perfectly frank: The excitement of the salon experience could likely cause more “shvitzing” than you typically experience. You don’t want to be nervous about sweating all over the gorgeous gowns. Plus, imagine the person before you trying on the same merchandise and stinking up the dresses you’re trying on. You don’t want to be that person.

3. Not having clean hair. This is another case of courtesy. Typically, you will try on veils with the gowns, but you may even just run into a salon on your lunch break and without a shopping buddy. Remember that every veil you try has been put on by many others and all you can hope for is that they were courteous and had clean hair, too. Pay it forward.

4. Ordering a gown in a projected size. Today, you may be five, ten or even twenty pounds bigger than your “ideal” wedding day weight. Your professional stylist, however, will try to dissuade you from ordering any size other than the size you would fit into today–and you should listen to him or her. A gown can always be altered to fit perfectly. But it will be a disaster if the gown arrives too small.

5. Buying a gown without knowing your anticipated heel height. It is always best to shop with a heel that’s the approximate height of what you will wear on your wedding day–and not just to see the general way a gown falls but for the sake of alterations. You want to make sure that if there is any intricate lace on the hemline, it won’t be compromised.

Often, a lace hem is separate from the actual lace on the skirt and you can request to send “hem lace separately” to avoid costly removal and adjustment in alterations. And, if the designer’s standard “hollow to hem” is too short for you to begin with, it is best to have the heel height right so that even the most experienced stylist doesn’t overlook this extremely critical detail. Human error can happen and it can really be a nightmare to fix later on.

6. Not having a budget in mind. This typically happens because the majority of brides have no idea what things cost, so it’s important to look at gown shopping as a perfect opportunity to educate yourself and ask questions. If you can add to your budget once you’re in the salon, great! But to try on gowns that are over-budget and risk falling in love–only to have to severely compromise later–will leave you feeling dissatisfied.

7. Not knowing the religious standards of the officiant marrying you. Often, we know that if a wedding is to be held in a church or synagogue there may be a dress code to follow. But if the ceremony is to be off-site, it is best to clarify any requirements with your officiant well in advance of the buying trip. This way, you can ask the stylist what ideas he or she might have if the neckline or sleeves on a gown you love are not quite right for your clergy.

‘Every Last Child,’ or Ways to Mistrust America

Thankfully, we have documentaries, such as Every Last Child, to open a window on what’s going on in the world, beyond Kardashians and Cait Jenner. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any nastier out there, here’s a movie about the drive to eradicate polio in Pakistan, home to the planet’s most cases — and lo, the Taliban issues a ban against the vaccination program, gunning down health workers.

Admittedly grim, the film is compelling because documentarian Tom Roberts, a sophisticated craftsman, plays the story for suspense: Will the medical personnel striving to stamp out polio succeed in the face of the Taliban’s murderous opposition? Roberts infuses his account with human interest by focusing on the dramas of several individuals affected by Pakistan’s current polio crisis. And, in infiltrating Karachi’s gathering places — at what feels like considerable risk — Roberts really gets the story’s full dimensions by presenting the side of the anti-vaccinators.

Everyone has their reasons, as Renoir has famously remarked. And though the Taliban’s actions are beyond despicable, in this film, their muddled reasons become somewhat understandable. Not only do they implicate America in this health crisis — they bring into sharp focus the double-edged role and image of this country across the world.

The human interest stories Roberts teases out spotlight the daily travails of a badly crippled beggar, struck by polio in childhood and painfully navigating the streets on a hand-wheeled bike (by film’s end, mercifully, he receives a new motorized one), a devastated father whose toddler gets fitted for leg braces, and a family struggling to come to terms with two women relatives who were shot by the Taliban for distributing drops to immunize the country’s children.

At the center of the crisis is a medical specialist from the World Health Organization, confounded at finding himself in the crosshairs of politics, bloodshed and misinformation designed to frighten the masses (such as Taliban propaganda labeling the vaccine a sinister conspiracy by the West that could cause, among other afflictions, impotence).

Child gives human contours to a country little understood in the West. The words of Habib Mehsud, the crippled beggar reflecting on his fate could be something out of Tolstoy in his Christian phase.

And lenser Ali Faisal Zaidi hauntingly captures dusty playing fields, colorful fabrics, watery byways and the beautiful faces of the country’s at-risk children. In its portrait of human forbearance Child resembles The Salt of the Earth, a must-see doc, currently in theaters, about the great humanist photographer Sebastaio Salgado.

The most illuminating takeaway from Child, however, might be the suspicion in many quarters of anything with an American or a Western imprimatur, even a vaccine to prevent polio. As one Pakistani remarks in a café: How can you trust a country that one moment dispenses medicine, and the next kills our people with drones?

Trans Women Discuss Sisterhood And The Violence They Experience Every Day

Sisterhood is a revolutionary act for all women.

A new documentary series called “This Is Me,” created by WifeyTV with the help of executive producer Jill Soloway, explores the issues trans and gender non-conforming people face everyday. In the most recent episode called “And My Sisters,” artist/actor Van Barnes, performance artist Miss Barbie-Q and artist/filmmaker Zackary Drucker sit down to discuss their friendships and the daily threat of violence they experience as trans women.

“Trans women are born witty, thank God. It’s part of our survival,” Barnes says at the beginning of the video. In the video, the three women sit around a table creating “prayer pumps” to memorialize a sister of theirs who was recently murdered for being trans.

“It’s a revolutionary act to be an out, visible trans person,” Drucker says, to which Barnes added: “It’s a revolutionary act just to walk down the street [as a trans person].”

With one gender non-conforming person being murdered every 48 hours around the world, the violence these women face is very much real — and it informs their behavior.

“I feel like I have to walk around with my fists up again,” Miss Barbie-Q says. She goes on to recount a time two months prior when she was assaulted by a man on the subway, simply for the way she expresses her identity.

“I have to gauge people because if they’re staring at me for too long, I think ‘Do I have to watch my back when I walk away from this person?’ Because violence can go from zero to 90 in a heartbeat,” Barnes says.

She also tells the other women about a time she was assaulted by five men on the street: “One of [the men] put his arm out and clotheslined me, right at the neck… He grabbed me, picked me up, body slammed me. Every single one of those guys took a turn body slamming me,” Barnes said. “Every time I was getting lifted into the air I thought, ‘I hope they don’t paralyze me.’ And nobody came to my rescue.”

“How many trans people are going to have to die on the street before change happens?” Miss Barbie-Q asks the other women in the video. In January and February of 2015 alone, seven trans women were murdered in the U.S.

A sentiment towards the end of the video sums up how important these women’s friendships really are: “These relationships give me a sense of stability, they give me a sense that things are possible, they give a sense of wholeness.”

Head over to WifeyTV to watch more of the “This Is Me” series.

Vince Vaughn Wants Guns In Every American School

Actor Vince Vaughn, one of Hollywood’s few outspoken conservatives, believes it’s a Constitutional right to carry guns everywhere, including schools.

The star of the upcoming season of “True Detective” blamed school shootings on the lack of guns on campuses, in excerpts shared Monday from an interview with the British edition of GQ.

I support people having a gun in public full stop, not just in your home. We don’t have the right to bear arms because of burglars; we have the right to bear arms to resist the supreme power of a corrupt and abusive government. It’s not about duck hunting; it’s about the ability of the individual. It’s the same reason we have freedom of speech. It’s well known that the greatest defence against an intruder is the sound of a gun hammer being pulled back. All these gun shootings that have gone down in America since 1950, only one or maybe two have happened in non-gun-free zones. Take mass shootings. They’ve only happened in places that don’t allow guns. These people are sick in the head and are going to kill innocent people. They are looking to slaughter defenceless human beings. They do not want confrontation. In all of our schools it is illegal to have guns on campus, so again and again these guys go and shoot up these f***ing schools because they know there are no guns there. They are monsters killing six-year-olds.

Sounding a wee bit like a conspiracy theorist, Vaughn later said that elites secretly stock weapons in the schools that their children attend.

You think the politicians that run my country and your country don’t have guns in the schools their kids go to? They do. And we should be allowed the same rights. Banning guns is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat. Taking away guns, taking away drugs, the booze, it won’t rid the world of criminality.

This is not first time Vaughn has spoken out about gun control. In a February interview with Playboy, he explained why he owns a firearm.

“I do [own a gun], yeah,” he said. “I believe in the right to defend yourself if need be. Hopefully you’re never in that situation, but I think you’re fairly naive to believe there will never be a cause for self-defense.”

The self-described libertarian also spoke out against the Obama administration and affirmative action in that interview while supporting same-sex marriage and legalizing drugs.

From a breathless encounter behind flimsy bamboo doors to shameless sex all over the house, this couple can’t keep their hands off each other. But what happens the next morning, in the light of day? This adult short story is meant for readers 17+. It contains sex in public places, multiple positions, oral sex, passionate kisses, torn underwear, food play, and a total disregard for the right way to treat an antique dining room table. “I think you’re exactly what I’m looking for,” he said. He bent his head to me and kissed me, hot and hard. I gasped, opening my mouth slightly, and he took advantage of it. His tongue slid into my mouth, weaving around my tongue and exciting me unbelievably. He deepened the kiss until I lost all thoughts of where I was for a moment. Suddenly, I pushed him away. “Wait! What are you doing?” I gasped. “I couldn’t help it,” he said. “Lips as plump and delicious as yours are just aching to be kissed. Didn’t you like it? Am I getting the wrong signals?

Answers to Every Question You’ve Ever Had About Buying and Selling Fashion on eBay

When it comes to scoring amazing deals on designer pieces or tracking down something specific you love (like that pair of heels you loved two years ago, but never actually made the move to buy), there’s nothing better than eBay. Even so, the amount of shoppers who are skeptical, confused, or downright scared of it is way too high, a big bummer since the fashion is major on the site.

“It’s grown to a $ 15 billion-a-year business,” Marcelle Parrish, head of fashion at eBay Marketplaces, told us, with shoes and bags proving to be especially popular (a pair of shoes sells every two seconds and a purse every five; on mobile, the numbers are seven and 11 seconds, respectively.) Within the North American market, there’s an average of 34 million listings per week across all fashion categories; the most popular women’s brands are Coach, Diane von Furstenberg, Missoni, and Valentino.

laptop-cup-of-coffee

For newbies nervous about winding up with a counterfeit, hear this: You have no reason to freak out. “Nothing is more important than the trust of our customers. When you buy or sell, we have your back,” eBay’s vice president of Global Trust, Laura Chambers, said. The site’s Money Back Guarantee is a well-seasoned system where shoppers register a complaint and eBay assists in a negotiation of sorts. The majority of sellers will do a return and refund, even if the option was marked as not available on the original listing, and if things get cantankerous, eBay steps in. Bottom line: You’ll never be stuck with the world’s worst fake and be out a few hundred bucks.

Tips and Tricks for Buying on eBay

1. Search Smartly
Start with the obvious keywords, and take advantage of filters available on the left-hand side of the page to wade through a large amount of matching listings. Griff Griffith, part of the community and education team at eBay, suggested further customizing the results you see by re-sorting by price once you have the general search right.

2. Pay Attention to the Little Clues
As diligent as the site tries to be, there are fakes posted. The easiest way to avoid buying something fake is to pay attention to any red flags. Is the price way too good to be true? Are pictures scant or badly out-of-focus? Is something just a little off, whether hardware wrapped in plastic or a logo that just doesn’t seem right? If you feel iffy about it, listen to your gut. Also to check: For shoes, is there a full range of sizes listed? If a seller in China has every single size of Isabel Marant ankle boots available, something’s fishy.

3. Check Out the Seller
EBay’s format includes feedback that gives you a snapshot of who you’re buying from. A brand-new account with no reviews or previous sales but a crazy cache of Chanel bags listed? It could be legit…or not. Click through to see the other items a seller has for sale for a good feel if you’re browsing the wares of a thirtysomething fashion fiend who’s cleaning out her closet or someone with a single fashion item that looks glaringly out of place alongside nonrelated items like tech gadgets or game consoles.

4. Do Your Homework
Before shopping a designer bag, some due diligence is in order. Know different brands’ hallmarks of authenticity (we covered Chanel, Balenciaga, Celine, and more); eBay has a robust section dedicated to educating shoppers too.

5. Now, Actually Start Bidding
Decide your top price before things get going to avoid being swept up in the excitement. You can enter your max bid off the bat, and eBay will automatically increase your offer as other shoppers join in. If you’re more into watching the shopping action as it unfolds, download the app and get your clicking finger ready (a lot of bids come in during the last five or 10 minutes of an auction). If you win, pay promptly.

Tips and Tricks for Selling on eBay

1.Write a Lengthy Description and Use Lots of Details
Imagine what you’d want as a shopper and give your prospective buyers that. The more information the better, as it’ll instill confidence in you and answer any questions they might think of. EBay has fields for all sort of characteristics, including specific measurements and materials; take advantage of those areas and answer.

2. Your Item Title Should Be Keyword-Rich
Shoppers are typically super specific, so beefing up your headline will help to get more potential buyers. Use the brand name (and make sure it’s spelled correctly), but also include the size, material, color, and a style name if relevant.

3. Take Good Pictures (and Lots of Them)
Pictures can make a huge difference whether your item sells, so add as many as you can to your listing. Take the general shot, but also zoom in on hardware, embellishments, and any tears, scratches, or discolored areas. Consider angles that will also reveal something additional about whatever you’re selling, whether it’s hanging it from a doorknob or adding a common item in for size relevance (think a dollar bill, a water bottle, etc).

4. Start Your Listing on These Days
Per eBay, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday are the best days to post items. (We’ve already heard that Tuesday is also the best day to shop online).

5. Be Realistic About Pricing
Setting your item at a too-high price is a sure way to never sell it. Consider how much you paid for it and what similar items are being sold for. Certain designer items will hold their value really well (a lot of designer handbags, jewelry), while other pieces decrease drastically as soon as you remove the tags.

6. Consider Offering Free Shipping
Plenty of serious sellers we’ve chatted with have encouraged offering the incentive. “Shipping items fast and free is one of the keys to being a successful seller on eBay,” Linda Lightman, CEO of top eBay shop Linda’s Stuff offered as a suggestion. When you purchase and print potage through eBay’s portal, you’ll also save on the prices the local post office would charge you (you can simply tape the label to your package).

‘Mad Max’ Got Mashed Up With ‘Mario Kart,’ And It Is Perfect In Every Way

Now this is a lovely day.

In the parody trailer to end them all, “Mad Max: Fury Road” has been combined with the “Mario Kart” franchise. And if you thought “Max” couldn’t get more awesome, just wait until some green shells are added in. Now, that’s madness.

Visual effects artist Kris Sundberg is reported to be the mastermind behind the project. With the sequel “Mad Max: The Wasteland” already in the works, we can only hope filmmakers get inspired to include Sundberg and a few Italian plumbers, too.

24 Promises Every Man Should Make To His Future Wife

By Tom Miller for YourTango

I’ll be 36 by the time this gets published and I’m still not married. According to my mom, I should probably count on staying that way for a while because “all the good ones are taken.”

Little does she know that, sooner or later, I’ll likely marry someone younger or, gawd fahbid, some “poor” divorcee.

I’m not sure if I’m one of the “good ones” or not, but what I am sure about is that I want to have shared values with my future wife — and in return, I’ll promise her the world.

Or more realistically, I will commit to these 24 things:

I will never leave an empty toilet paper roll in the bathroom (or hang a fresh roll upside down like a monster).

  1. I will try to solve your problems instead of just listening and saying, “that sucks.”
  2. I will handle or (delegate handling) any pest problems.
  3. I will only say sh*tty things about your family when they do sh*tty things to you.
  4. I won’t steal your thunder and will always be your biggest cheerleader.
  5. I will eat anything you cook… unless it’s genuinely gross because life is just too short.
  6. I will respond incredibly well to the words “please” and “thank you.”
  7. I won’t get embarrassingly drunk at any event that’s important to you.
  8. I will surprise you with my depth of knowledge about completely unimportant topics regularly.
  9. I will bring home flowers for no reason, and no, I’m not feeling guilty about anything.
  10. I will not share all my passwords with you, nor will I ask for yours.
  11. I will sing the wrong words to songs… loudly.
  12. I will continue to despise reality TV, unless I marry a reality TV star.
  13. I will take athletic endeavors too seriously.
  14. I will make jokes at inappropriate times; you will generally laugh.
  15. I will refer to myself as a hero, not always ironically.
  16. I will lavish you with compliments, mostly sincerely.
  17. I will consult with you for most purchases over1,000 — adjusted for inflation to 2015 currency values — unless it’s a gift for you, or we’re just NASTY rich.
  18. I will cuddle you until I absolutely just need to sleep.
  19. I will not shoplift. This is probably not an issue, but I’m an 8th Commandment guy.
  20. I will not let disagreements with you color my opinion of you as a person.
  21. I will not go vegan.
  22. I will not start a band.
  23. I will help any of your friends move (provided they’re not complete jerks).
  24. I will not (completely) let myself go.

I know, you don’t have to say it: I’ll be a hero husband and all of your friends will be hella-jealous of how much I spoil you.

Every Single Outfit From Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” Music Video (All 36 of Them!)

Thank goodness last night’s Billboard Music Awards opened with the premiere of Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” video because let’s be honest—the world couldn’t have waited much longer (there was seriously that much hype). All the cameos from Taylor’s high-powered posse of pals meant there were a ton of different outfits and, spoiler alert, every single one was pretty sexy.

Outfit #1: Taylor’s nude bustier and skirt
taylor-swift-bad-blood-video-latex-bustier
The video opened with so much action that we didn’t get a good look at Taylor’s first outfit until she got pushed through a window. With a nude latex bustier, miniskirt, garter belt, and thigh-highs, it started things off plenty steamy.

Outfit #2: Selena Gomez’s pussy-bow blouse and miniskirt
taylor-swift-bad-blood-video-selena-gomez
Selena got retro-cool in black tights and pumps, plus a swing mini and necktie blouse.

Outfit #3 and #4: Kendrick Lamar’s black suit and Taylor’s white latex two-piece
taylor-swift-bad-blood-white-latex
Kendrick wore a black suiting to sit behind a desk, boss-style, and Taylor wore white latex with buckles to log time in a sci-fi machine that appeared to fix any wounds she sustained from Selena.

Outfit #5: Lena Dunham’s scene-stealing gloves
taylor-swift-bad-blood-video-lena-dunham
We didn’t get to see Lena’s entire outfit, but her most major accessory was on full display: those buttery soft black leather gloves.

Outfit #6 and #7: Hailee Steinfeld’s white suit, and Taylor’s armor plates and crazy boots
taylor-swift-bad-blood-hailee-steinfeld
For her part in the trio of healers, Hailee wore all white (all the way down to her chunky-heeled Chelsea boots) and helped outfit Tay in those sick armored pieces. Also worth noting here: Taylor’s crazy, Lady Gaga-esque boots.

Outfit #8: Serayah’s bondage bra and cutout bodysuit
taylor-swift-bad-blood-video-serayah
Straps were everywhere on Serayah’s sexy number—they hugged her sides, crisscrossed at the shoulder, and replaced regular bra straps.

Outfit #9: Gigi Hadid’s bra, body harness, and over-the-knee boots
taylor-swift-bad-blood-video-gigi-hadid
High-waisted shorts mixed with a harness and tall boots that felt like high-fashion armor.

Outfit #10: Ellie Goulding’s long-sleeve top, shorts, and wide belt
taylor-swift-bad-blood-video-ellie-goulding
The thing that pushed Ellie’s look from basic LBD to something seriously dangerous? That wide belt, complete with three straps and a ton of buckles and hoops.

Outfit #11: Martha Hunt’s full-coverage bodysuit
taylor-swift-bad-blood-video-martha-hunt
Victoria’s Secret beauty Martha was the vid’s most ninja-like warrior, spinning and twisting in long-sleeve leather.

Outfit #12 and #13: Kendrick’s suit and Taylor’s sexy black lingerie
taylor-swift-bad-blood-video-lingerie
A baseball cap made Kendrick’s earlier look more casual for a ride around the training facility, while Taylor got extra saucy in black lingerie and sexy stockings.

Outfit #14 and #15: Cara Delevingne’s bandage cage one-piece and Taylor’s silver spike bra
taylor-swift-bad-blood-video-cara-delevingne
Cara made her appearance in a bandage bathing suit, while Taylor got fierce with a spiked bra top and wrist-length leather gloves.

Outfit #16 and #17: Zendaya’s bra, biker shorts, and platform boots, and Taylor’s turtleneck and platform boots
taylor-swift-bad-blood-video-zendaya
There was a ’90s vibe going on for Zendaya, who rocked biker shorts, high socks, and chunky platforms. Taylor rocked the same shoes but had a Princess Leia thing going with her billowy sleeve onesie.

Outfit #18 and #19: Hayley Williams’ blue cutout bodysuit and Taylor’s leather leotard and over-the-knee boots
taylor-swift-bad-blood-video-paramour
As one of the few ladies permitted to wear non-black, Paramour’s Hayley really stood out in blue leather. Taylor stood by in another leather leotard and tall boots.

Outfit #20: Taylor’s white jumpsuit and fur hood
taylor-swift-bad-blood-video-snow-suit
For her turn out of all-black, Taylor wore a white short suit (that looked, shape-wise, a lot like this red carpet pick).

Outfit #21: Lily Aldridge’s white zippered two-piece, fur hood, and fur arm warmers
taylor-swift-bad-blood-video-lily-aldridge
Lily’s outfit mimicked Taylor’s, though there were key differences. Hers was a two-piece with metallic silver accents and featured more fuzz on her arm warmers.

Outfit #22 and #23: Karlie Kloss’s and Taylor’s all-black boxing outfits
taylor-swift-bad-blood-video-karlie-kloss-boxing
The real-life pals battled in the ring in tiny one-pieces that could be marketed as super-sexy singlets.

Outfit #24 and #25: Jessica Alba’s and Taylor’s leather motorcycle racing jumpsuits
taylor-swift-bad-blood-video-leather-suit-motorcycle
For the video’s fastest scene (speed racers!), Taylor and Jessica both wore slick leather racing suits.

Outfit #26: Taylor’s latex and leather jumpsuit
taylor-swift-bad-blood-video-leather-jumpsuit
A matte leather jumpsuit with geometric latex lines would have stood out, flare or no flare.

Outfit #27and #28: Mariska Hargitay’s fringed jacket and Ellen Pompeo’s bold shoulders
taylor-swift-bad-blood-video-mariska-hargitay-ellen-pompeo
Mariska’s statement jacket featured trendy fringe all over, while Ellen showed off some sharp shoulders with her structured shrug.

Outfit #29: Cindy Crawford’s leather bodysuit and body harness
taylor-swift-bad-blood-video-cindy-crawford
Cindy looked every inch the glamazon warrior princess in high-shine leather with a harness and leg holster on her thigh.

Outfit #s 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, and 35: Lots of leather, lots of metal accents
taylor-swift-bad-blood-video-finale
For the mini movie’s big battle scene, Taylor and her ladies rallied in uniforms ready for high-fashion fighting. From left to right, Hayley, Zendaya, Gigi, Tay, Martha, Serayah, and Cara all showed off a mix of leather shorts, bustiers, and boots.

Outfit #36: Selena’s black bustier
taylor-swift-bad-blood-selena-gomez-bustier
As the leader of the opposite army, Selena had the same vibe going on: a sexy bra top with sheer long sleeves and skinny straps.

11 Party Mistakes That Almost Every Host Makes

Maybe it’s your birthday. Maybe your godson is graduating from college. Maybe it’s a Saturday night and your name is Emily Gilmore. Maybe it’s a Thursday night and you’re the Entertainment Chair of your fraternity. But for whatever reason, you’re throwing a party. The invitations have gone out, and you’ve figured out the lighting, decor and music.

But you also need to figure out the food and beverage situation. You’re entering perilous waters, full of rocky shoals and hungry sea monsters. But don’t worry: HuffPost is here. We’ve identified 11 common food-and-drink mistakes that party hosts make all the time. As long as you avoid these snafus, you’ll be just fine. You’ll throw a great party, and all your friends will love you forever, and all your enemies will rue the day they crossed you.

Mistake #1: Not Having Enough Ice

This is the most common mistake party hosts make, which is frustrating because it’s really cheap and easy to rectify and ice is SUPER IMPORTANT. If you have ice, you can make pretty much any simple mixed drink taste good: cold and dilution can make even straight whiskey or tequila palatable. But without ice, you can’t really make any mixed drink taste good. (Except, I suppose, a hot toddy?) The dozen ice cubes that have been collecting dust in your ice trays for a week won’t cut it. When you throw a party, buy some bags of ice. More than you think you’ll need. It’s better to have leftovers — which keep pretty much forever — than to run out halfway through the night.

Mistake #2: Not Having Enough Cups

This is almost as bad as, and even easier to fix than, not having enough ice. But I also understand it: You might think you should buy as many cups as there will be guests, plus maybe 20 percent for people who lose theirs. But the truth is that a good party will be so chaotic that many guests are likely to go through not one or two, but easily three or four cups. So buy a ton! Just be sure to recycle them the next day, or, better yet, wash and reuse them.

Mistake #3: Having Too Low A Ratio Of Mixers-To-Liquor

Here’s a common sight: You walk into a party, you go to the makeshift bar the host has set up on some credenza in their living room, and you see exactly as many bottles of juice or soda as there are bottles of liquor. This is wrong. Those mixers will run out. You should always provide at least three times as much mixer as liquor. Especially because there are bound to be some people who won’t want to drink alcohol, or much alcohol, and will want cups of plain Diet Coke or cranberry juice.

Mistake #4: Serving Drinks That Are Too Fussy

mixologist

This is, in some sense, the inverse of the first three mistakes. It comes from a noble place in the heart of a party host — the desire to serve delicious beverages. But it, too, is a mistake. Fussy drinks take a long time to make, which can create bottlenecks of sobriety at the party, especially if a bunch of guests arrive at the same time. And it forces the host to focus on mixology rather than talking to their guests and having fun. If you’re insistent on serving a fantastic, elaborate drink, make it a punch that you can mix one huge batch of in advance: My favorite is the Original Chatham Artillery Punch. It’s never been anything less than a smash hit when I’ve made it for a group.

Mistake #5: Not Serving Food

You don’t have to feed everyone at your party a full dinner. Certainly not. You don’t have to serve delicious food. (Though it helps.) But if you are serving alcohol, you must provide something to eat. Chips and salsa, olives or a bowl of nuts, at least. Otherwise, people will get wasted far more quickly than you want them to — or, just as bad, they’ll leave when they get peckish.

Mistake #6: Serving Messy Food
messy food

On balance, serving messy food may actually be worse than serving no food. Nothing ruins a party like getting sloppy joe meat all over your nice shirt.

Mistake #7: Serving Clichéd Party Food

You wanna see someone’s eyes roll back all the way into their head? Invite me to a party and serve one of two kinds of food: a grape-and-cheese plate or a crudité platter, the pre-fab kind that comes from Costco. It’s lazy, boring and totally basic. I’d prefer a bowl of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. This is, I admit, better than no food at all — but only by a hair.

Mistake #8: Putting All The Food And Drink In One Place

A subtle mistake that has consigned countless parties to failure. Here’s why: If you put the beer, the liquor, the Cheetos and the cake all on one table, or, God forbid, in your narrow kitchen, all your guests are going to congregate there. That’s a recipe for heat, discomfort, accidental pushing and early departures. Instead, if you have any space at all, spread the different types of comestibles throughout your home. That way, your guests will be forced to move around the party all night, and thereby be thrust into all sorts of the random encounters that are the lifeblood of a proper party.

Mistake #9: Not Accounting For Dietary Restrictions

gwyneth paltrow

If you have no dietary restrictions whatsoever, it’s easy to be annoyed by them, or even to forget that they exist. But when you’re throwing a party, you have to think about them. Because if you don’t, you run the risk of having multiple people feel uncomfortable, hungry and sad at your party. You should be safe as long as you have options for people who are vegetarian, vegan and/or gluten-free. That’s not particularly difficult: get some wine for the gluten-free people to drink instead of beer, and serve some pita and hummus, or other meatless snack, alongside your platter of prosciutto and foie gras terrine. Easy peasy.

Mistake #10: Not Making The Menu Personal

This one’s a little nebulous, and related to the injunction against clichéd party foods. But the idea is that if you’re throwing a party, it should feel like your party. Not your mom’s party or your friend’s party or a party you saw on Pinterest. Some of this work can and should be done through decor, but food and drink with personal significance can be great too. So if you just moved back to Chicago after spending four years in San Diego, get some craft beer from that great San Diego brewery you toured! Or if you’re known as an obsessive “Breaking Bad” fan, serve some meth-inspired blue drinks! Bake some of your trademark blondies!

Mistake #11: Not Serving Jell-O Shots

I’ve saved the most important rule of party-throwing for last: Always serve Jell-O Shots. Preferably in a piñata .

This Video Game Perfectly Depicts The Struggles Of Every Cat Owner

“We piss you off, but you love us anyway.” — the motto of cats everywhere.

Which is why Will Herring‘s video game, “My Garbage Cat Wakes Me Up at 3 a.m. Every Day,” is so great. The game, which can be played on your desktop, allows you to fulfill the role of Herring’s cat. The objective is to knock everything over and wake up your poor, sleeping human.

Because that’s just what our feline friends do.

In addition to knocking everything over, you can “meow and cry all the time” and “knead with your dumb little paws,” the instructions announce. As you destroy your human’s apartment, you will deplete his sleep meter. When the meter runs out, the human begrudgingly admits defeat and says exactly what cat owners are all quietly wondering to themselves — “Why are you this way.”

Of course, cat owners love their furry friends, and would probably follow them to the ends of the Earth. But sometimes it’s just nice to turn the tables and experience a feline’s glorious, needy life.

To play “My Garbage Cat Wakes Me Up at 3 a.m. Every Day,” visit the game’s website here.

Azealia Banks Calls BET Awards ‘Bogus,’ Says Nicki Minaj Wins ‘Every Year’

Azealia Banks is never one to hide her feelings, and it’s safe to say she’s really not feeling her BET Award nomination for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist.

Iggy Azalea, Nicki Minaj, Trina, Tink and Dej Loaf are up for the honor along with Banks, who took to Twitter on Monday to express her thoughts on the “bogus” award show:

Minaj certainly has been a favorite at the BET Awards and has taken home the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist for the last five consecutive years. She has yet to respond to Banks’ comments, but she’s likely basking in the afterglow of dropping the video for “Feeling Myself” with Beyonce.

Besides, Banks claims her comments weren’t supposed to be taken as jabs at Minaj anyway:

21 Books From The Last 5 Years That Every Woman Should Read

books every woman

The one struggle of being a woman who reads is that you want to read everything.

It’s easy to get overwhelmed by bestseller lists, because there just isn’t enough time in the day to read every hot new book. Between near-constant recommendations of amazing memoirs, new sequels and a terrifyingly long list of bookmarked Internet longreads, it can be stressful to choose what you should pick up next. Knowing which classics you’re missing from your reading repertoire is easy — it’s a little harder to remember what you’ve missed from three years ago.

We’ve done a little bit of the hard work for you (or maybe just increased your book stress… sorry) by pulling together a list of incredible titles from the past few years that you should add to the pile on your bedside table. These books by women are just a few of the incredible titles published recently — an exhaustive list would be hundreds of books longer. Those listed here are some of the most-discussed, thought-provoking and life-changing books from a diverse group of women writers. They make you rethink what being a feminist means, offer life advice to women of all ages, and reinforce your long-held belief that Tina and Amy should be your best friends and life coaches forever. The novels are some of the finest writing from woman authors. From lighthearted memoirs to harrowing thrillers, there’s a genre here for everyone.

Here are 21 books published in the past 5 years that all women should read:

17 Things Every Former Tomboy Knows To Be True

Art by Eva Hill

In fourth grade, I wore the same pair of overalls every day for an entire year. In fifth grade, it was a pair of Adidas sneakers, which I insisted on slipping my feet into every day until there were gaping holes in the toes. (The only way my mom got me to stop wearing them was by throwing them in the garbage while I was sleeping one night.) I hated the idea of looking “pretty,” I always wondered why I had to play softball and not baseball with the boys, and I was never ready for school picture day. I was a “tomboy.”

Tomboys are, by definition, young girls who tend to conform to traditionally masculine characteristics and habits when they’re young. As a former tomboy, I’m no stranger to dirt, sweat and an overwhelming obsession with Michael Jordan (he was and still is the King).

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with being a girl who’s more interested in learning to bead or braid than play sports or prefers pink to green. Being “girly” is nothing to be ashamed of — I was just never that.

My childhood was filled with bruised knees, softball tournaments and cleats. And I know there are many women out there who can relate. These experiences shaped who I am today, leaving me with amazing memories, a specific fashion sense and a wicked competitive streak.

This one goes out to every lady who still has trouble putting on her $ 1.99 CVS eyeliner. Here are 17 things every former tomboy knows to be true:

1. Your shoe obsession will always be with sneakers, not heels. Practice makes perfect except when it comes to heels and… walking in them.

2. Your favorite movie as a kid was a straight-up action flick. And people still look at your weirdly when you tell them that. (For me, it was “The Fugitive.”)

3. You appreciate the beautiful simplicity of a ponytail. Everything else takes too much time.

4. You know how to stand up for yourself. After years of proving yourself on the kickball field with the boys you’re not afraid of a conflict or some friendly competition.

5. Putting on makeup is still a big mystery. When you’re forced to get dressed up, half the time you walk out looking like this.

6. Your childhood pictures are more embarrassing than most, because you look like a little boy.

7. Sweatpants not leggings. Always and forever.

8. You pride yourself on being competitive in every single sport. Maybe a little too competitive.

9. The girly clothing store “Limited Too” still makes you cringe a bit. So. Much. Glitter.

10. You were one of the only girls who played the saxophone or trombone in middle school. You wanted to be with boys and the flute just didn’t do it for you.

11. Wall ball was your jam in elementary school. And if anyone ever challenged you today, you could still (gleefully) crush them.

12. You’ve broken a bone — probably more than once. Whether you were playing sports or riding your skateboard, you were always falling and breaking something.

13. Pink will never be your color of choice. In the words of Amy Poehler, “Good for her! Not for me.”

14. You constantly have to remind people that just because you happen to be a woman doesn’t mean you don’t understand sports. So please, stop explaining football to me.

15. You said “dude” a lot, growing up. And you probably still do. .

16. LEGO space ships remind you of your childhood — not Easy Bake ovens.

17. Instead of hopping on the elliptical at the gym, you head straight to the squat rack. So please, dudes in the weight-lifting corner — stop looking surprised when I know what a hang clean is.

The Air Travel Trigger Effect: Discover The Secret Effect That Kills Thousands Of Airline Passengers Every Year

The Air Travel Trigger Effect: Discover The Secret Effect That Kills Thousands Of Airline Passengers Every Year


However fit and healthy you may be, this book shows how to avoid illness and even death as a result of the trigger effect caused by air travel. Many air trips are ruined every year as a result of air travel illness that can sometimes be fatal. It is a little known fact that more people die from in-flight illness than from the sum total of all kinds of air calamities. Thousands of people die every year from the trigger effect; that is, from diseases or medical conditions that can be tipped or triggered into a critical phase during or after an air trip. Travel preparations plus long waits at the airport, customs and baggage handling, as well as the fears many people have about flying, often mean that air passengers become stressed easily. Add to this cabin pressurization, poor oxygen in the air, cramped seating, and some susceptible medical condition, and you have a powerful recipe for a potential medical emergency in the air. Worldwide, the trigger effect accounts for thousands of fatalities. For example, in the USA alone there are about 14,000 medical emergencies per year causing about 350 in-flight fatalities on the nine major USA airlines. This figure far outnumbers the annual toll of fatalities caused by air accidents in the USA (source: “U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, Moving America safely: 2005 annual performance report. FAA, 2005″).”Between 2002 and 2007, just two European airlines recorded 10,189 in-flight medical emergencies. This is more than 2,000 events per year for just two airlines” (source: Surgical and medical emergencies on board European aircraft: a retrospective study of 10189 cases, Critical Care 2009, 13:R3 doi:10.1186/cc7690).Most large European airlines experience about 10 to 20 in-flight deaths per year. This is below average compared to many other airlines. Research shows that over 1% of airline passengers admitted to hospital within a day of leaving an aircraft end up dead. But airlines generally do not admit to having any in-flight fatal

13 Reasons To Have Sex With Your Spouse Every Night

When life gets busy, one of the first things to go in a relationship is sex. Couples are too tired, too full, too stressed, too distracted. Simply put: not in the mood.

We get it — there are a million and one legitimate reasons not to have sex tonight, tomorrow or the day after that. But there are plenty of couples out there who are doing the deed five, six, seven or more times a week. We recently asked married HuffPost readers who have sex every night (barring things like sickness, business trips or other extenuating circumstances, of course) how it has improved their lives and relationships. Below are 13 good reasons to get it on with your spouse on a near daily basis.

1. It provides some much-needed couple time.
“My husband and I have sex every night because it’s a moment in the day that is just about the two of us. We are parents to a toddler, so when we lay him down for bed each night, we can then spend the rest of the night expressing how we feel about each other physically. Having sex allows us to be passionate, to show affection and we enjoy pleasing each other.” – Christie M. of Arkansas; married 3 years

2. It leads to more PDA outside of the bedroom.
“We’re very physically expressive with one another, even when we’re not having sex. We hold hands a lot, he slaps my butt when I’m working in the kitchen, I nuzzle his neck when he’s working on research papers at the desk.” – Jesse N. of Ontario, Canada; married less than one year

3. It can be a workout if you do it right.
“When you have four kids and no time, sex is the best exercise.” – Tera M. of Oklahoma, married less than one year

4. It gets you out of your head for a little while.
“Sex for me, and now for my husband since we’ve gotten together, is a complete escape from reality. We are both very much into role-playing and it’s such a wonderful feeling to not have to be me for a while, to completely shut off from our crappy day-to-day existence and strictly be about ourselves and our enjoyment.” – Sara C., of Panama City, Florida; married one year

5. It builds trust.
“New positions and sexual frontiers take a lot of trust in your partner to not screw it up, and that kind of trust is best earned after several years of personal and joint bodily exploration.” – Kristena M. of Richmond, Virginia; married 10 years

6. It’s a way to connect without speaking.
“Sex is a vital part of marriage. It brings couples together in a way that other things don’t. What I mean is that it promotes togetherness, snuggling and cuddling, and it’s a way to connect without words.” – Teresa F. of Nashville, Michigan; married 37 years

7. You might end up arguing less.
“We know when something is off with each other. And most importantly, we don’t fight, argue or bicker! We sit down and talk things out. Staying connected like that helps us communicate better outside of the bedroom.” – Libby S. of Indianapolis, Indiana; married 2 years

8. It forces you to get creative.
“Being intimate so often, and sharing what each person needs and wants allows the freedom of creativity. There is no position or situation either of us has ever denied the other. This makes us each feel more and more comfortable to share [fantasies] or point out a hot girl or guy, and say what we’d like to do with them in bed.” – Arlene B. of Monterey, California; engaged for 3 years

9. It’s easier to schedule than a formal date night.
“I think it’s the easiest way to have some romance since we really don’t do date nights or vacations alone. Plus, I know my husband enjoys it.” – Emily D. of Pleasanton, California; married 12 years

10. One word: Orgasms.
“The benefit for me is that it feels simply amazing. I also love to see how my husband gets lost in the moment. Being able to see that level of complete satisfaction on his face is so satisfying to me.” – Stacia L. of Texas; married 11 years

11. It improves self-esteem.
“It has brought a new level of happiness for me personally, and has helped my self-esteem knowing that after two kids, my husband still thinks I’m sexy.” – Karri H. of Alaska, married 6 years

12. It’s a guaranteed mood booster.
“He sings in the shower after morning sex, nearly every time. This is all the proof I need that sex is a mood enhancer for him. And I’d like to think that good mood carries over into other parts of his day. I love knowing that I’m the reason he’s smiling at work.” – Jesse N. of Ontario, Canada; married less than one year

13. If you use it, you won’t lose it.
“If sex is such a large part of your routine and a big priority, it never becomes low priority or gets weird or awkward. And you won’t have to worry about how to resume or reconnect. Just don’t ever stop doing it!” – Lara G. of Austin, Texas; married 24 years

Dreaming of Dior: Every Dress Tells a Story

Dreaming of Dior: Every Dress Tells a Story


Charlotte Smith had already had more than her fair share of fabulous dresses and adventures. She lived life to the fullest in London, Paris and New York before falling in love with Australia and making it her home. Then she discovered that she had inherited a priceless vintage clothing collection from her American Quaker godmother, Doris Darnell. When the boxes started arriving, they were filled with more than three thousand pieces dating from 1790 to 1995, from Dior and Chanel originals to a dainty pioneer dress. But when she unearthed her godmother’s book of stories, the true value of what she had been given hit home. This wasn’t merely a collection of beautiful things; it was a collection of lives. Women’s lives. Tiny snapshots of our joys and disappointments, our entrances and exits, triumphant and tragic. This is a book for any woman who knows a dress can hold a lifetime of memories. Charlotte Smith is Curator of The Fashion and Textile Gallery in Sydney which is also home to The Darnell Collection, the 5000 piece vintage collection Charlotte inherited from her godmother, Doris Darnell. Born in Hong Kong and raised in the United States, Charlotte has a degree from Hollins College in Art History and has lived and worked in America, England, and France for Impressionist art dealers. She moved to Australia in 1998 and opened a shop selling French country antiques. Charlotte has one daughter. Grant Cowan has worked as an illustrator on magazines like “Harper’s Bazaar,” “Glamour” and “Red “magazine. He studied fashion design and lived in London before moving to Australia to teach fashion illustration. Grant is a freelance fashion illustrator and works with fashion schools in Sydney.

Here’s How To Get Every Last Bit Of Peanut Butter Out Of The Jar (This Is Genius)

The worst, worst, worst, worst, worst thing about peanut butter is the construction of its jar. Nothing else is bad about peanut butter; it’s one of the world’s most divine edibles. It satisfies a salty craving, it makes for exquisite sandwiches and it can help keep you full for long periods of time.

But, when you reach the last licks of a jar (which is devastating on its own), the remnants of the nutty spread are near impossible to wrangle. No utensil is agile enough to scrape the remaining bits, and not even a toddler’s hand is slim enough to fit all the way through the jar. In most cases, this quandary results in tossing out the jar while there’s still some perfectly good peanut butter inside. It doesn’t feel right, but it seems there are no other options.

Worst. Thing. Ever.

But there are alternatives to discarding the jar while there’s still a bit of nutty goodness leftover. In fact, there are two tricks. We’ve already discussed overnight oats, which soak up the peanut butter into a mixture of oats, milk and other delectable toppings to craft a perfect breakfast. But overnight oats require patience and a bit of elbow grease. For instant gratification, saw the jar in half. Really!

Facebook/Chandler Bolt

Hallelujah, right? It’s so simple, so obvious in hindsight. Just locate an X ACTO knife or a regular kitchen knife and carefully slice the jar in half on a cutting board. Be careful not to scrape your hands on the rough plastic edges. Of course, this trick won’t work with glass jars (sad). You could smash it against a wall, but then you’d be eating more glass shards than peanut butter, and from a medical perspective that just isn’t safe.

8 Things You Didn’t Know About The Super Bowl, Even If You Watch Every Year

Although you watch it every year, what do you really know about the Super Bowl?

This Sunday, the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks are facing off in Super Bowl XLIX. The Super Bowl has a long history of memorable moments, and, with Marshawn Lynch’s Skittles and the Patriots (maybe) deflated balls alone, even more memorable moments are certainly bound to happen this weekend.

But before everything goes down this time around, here are eight things you can learn about the game and share at your viewing party … even if your favorite part is actually the commercials.

1. Someone has snuck into over 30 Super Bowls including the very first championship.

461728956

Dion Rich has gate-crashed many, many big events including the Oscars and Olympics, but he has snuck into the Super Bowl the most. In a 1993 Los Angeles Times profile, Rich explained his motives, “It was my hobby. The guys at home expected me to be on the tube or in the papers every year. I couldn’t let them down. I made it on TV or in some publication in 21 of the first 22 Super Bowls.” In the photo above, you can see rich even hoisting Dallas Cowboys coach Tom Landry after they won Super Bowl XII.

Unfortunately, security knows his face these days, checkpoints have increased since 2001, and Rich is no longer able to crash the Super Bowl. According to NY Daily News, his last successful attempt was the New Orleans Super Bowl XXXVI in 2002. Even in the ’90s, Rich told the Los Angeles Times:

After so many years it gets to be a real job. People see me on the sidelines all the time and think it’s easy. It’s not easy, it takes a lot of conniving and ingenuity and contacts. Every year they made it tougher … It just wasn’t that much fun anymore.

2. The first person to say, “I’m going to Disney World!” really didn’t want to do it at first.

71157527

USA Today’s For The Win caught up with former Giants quarterback Phil Simms in 2014 to talk about how this first Disney plug came together. Perhaps surprisingly, Simms didn’t have much interest in being a part of the campaign: “I didn’t want to do it,” he said. “I just thought that was wrong trying to do something like that.”

Simms was named MVP of Super Bowl XXI in 1987 and he remembered just being happy about winning the game when the cameras caught him to do the commercial. “Of course I’m smiling because we won, and the other reason is because I can’t believe I’m doing this,” Simms told For The Win.

For his role in the commercial, Simms was paid $ 50,000 and Disney did in fact send his family to Disney World.

In 2008, SF Gate profiled Mark Allan, the camera person who typically rushes on to the field to get the line from the Super Bowl winner, including the first one with Simms. Apparently the person in the commercial has to repeat the line a few times and says both Disney Land and World so the commercial can be targeted to each coast. While trying to capture the players, Simms basically just keeps saying, “Look in the lens.”

3. Joe Montana once calmed his team down before a Super Bowl-winning drive by pointing to the stands and joking, “Isn’t that John Candy?”

77620418

It was the 1989 Super Bowl and Joe Montana’s San Francisco 49ers were trailing the Cincinnati Bengals with time running out. According to legend, the 49ers offense were understandably nervous as they had to trek down almost the entire field to score. As Rolling Stone recounted, Montana apparently knew the right words to say to his team to calm their nerves. In a huddle, Montana began pointing to the crowd, saying, “There, in the stands, standing near the exit ramp … Isn’t that John Candy?”

It hasn’t been confirmed whether John Candy was truly in the stands during that game, but, in any case, Montana led the offense 92 yards down the field to score a winning touchdown with just 34 seconds left on the clock.

4. Both “Little Giants” and “Space Jam” were created out of successful Super Bowl commercials.

466857949

Ad people Jim Ferguson and Bob Shallcross created a McDonald’s advertisement for the 1992 Super Bowl about pee wee football that ended up catching legendary director Steven Spielberg’s attention. In a 1994 Baltimore Sun article, it was said that Ferguson came into the office one day and was simply told to give Spielberg a call. Ferguson thought it was a practical joke at first, but ended up getting Spielberg on the line. Spielberg apparently said, “I want that commercial made into a movie. I want my ‘Home Alone.'”

In 1994, Ferguson also told the Chicago Tribune, “Ninety seconds and Steven Spielberg changed our lives,” referring to himself and his partner Shallcross. Both of them ended up working with Spielberg to develop “Little Giants.”

The Nike and MCI commercial “Hare Jordan” was another Super Bowl commercial that led to a movie. At the end of “Hare Jordan,” Bugs Bunny tells Michael Jordan, “This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship!” This obviously ended up being the case as the two were together again for the movie “Space Jam.”

5. During the first Super Bowl, NBC accidentally missed the taping of a kickoff and so the whole play was reset for the cameras.

77764299

During Super Bowl I, in 1967, both NBC and CBS had television rights to the game since NBC had a deal with the AFL and CBS the NFL. The game was between the Green Bay Packers and the Kansas City Chiefs and would have to be partially reset at one point due to a screw up by NBC.

As Rolling Stone recounted, the problem happened when the game was coming back from half time and NBC was still televising an interview with comedian Bob Hope. NBC failed to switch to the game fast enough so it was decided that the kickoff Green Bay had just completed would be entirely redone.

Green Bay would end up winning the game and as mentioned before, Dion Rich’s gate crashing ways enabled him to see it all go down.

6. A star player missed the Super Bowl due to a cocaine binge the night before.

347119

The previously mentioned 1989 Super Bowl, in which Joe Montana apparently spotted John Candy in the crowd, had another notable aspect to it. Montana might not have even gotten the chance to make a comeback though if the Cincinnati Bengals offense had had all their players to begin with.

Stanley Wilson was a running back for the Bengals who had already had two strikes from the league for drug use. He had made it through this preceding season without a problem, getting tested multiple times a week. This self control unfortunately only lasted until the night before the Super Bowl as Wilson succumbed to what Rolling Stone described as a “crack-cocaine binge.”

A Cincinnati Enquirer article from 1999 looked into the night surrounding Wilson’s decision and detailed how it almost didn’t even happen. Wilson,on his way to a team meeting with other players, stopped and said, “I forgot my playbook. I’ll meet you guys downstairs.” Wilson headed back to the room and didn’t return.

As this was Wilson’s third strike, he was given a lifetime ban from playing in the NFL.

7. The Baltimore Ravens ended up winning the Super Bowl after referring to the game as “Festivus” the whole season instead.

459284751

Festivus might be for the rest of us, but, in 2001, the “Seinfeld”-created holiday was especially for the Baltimore Ravens.

As the book Festivus: The Holiday for the Rest of Us details, the superstitious head coach of the Ravens, Brian Billick, forbade his team from referencing the Super Bowl and playoffs throughout that season. Since logistically this became a problem, offensive lineman Edwin Multialo proposed calling the big game “Festivus Maximus” instead. The term stuck and then the Ravens went on to win “Festivus Maximus” in what was probably one of the biggest celebrations of the holiday yet.

Later in 2001, The Baltimore Sun even referred to the event as “Festivus Ravenous!”

8. The referees that officiate the Super Bowl also get rings.

52286160

These referee rings aren’t quite the same as the rings that players get, but they’re certainly still a point of pride. Mike Pereira of Fox Sports explained in a 2014 article:

The Super Bowl ring. The officials get Super Bowl rings just like the players do. They aren’t as big as the players’ rings, but they are still valuable pieces of jewelry. These rings mean the world to the officials and they wear them with such pride.

The American Profile also wrote about Super Bowl referees in 2012 and had retired NFL referee Jim Tunney show them his three Super Bowl rings. Referee Gerald Austin was quoted in that article as saying these refs aren’t given much advance notice they’ll be officiating the Super Bowl. “They called me about 11 days before the Super Bowl XXIV,” said Austin.

BONUS: According to legend, the Super Bowl got its name from the “Super Ball” toy.

52286160

The Pro Football Hall of Fame has had a super ball (shown in the photo above) on display to commemorate Kansas City Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt’s apparent coining of the game name after his children’s toy. According to Henry D. Fetter of The Atlantic, when Fetter was asked how he originally came up with the name, he said, “My own feeling is that it probably registered in my head because my daughter Sharron and my son Lamar Jr. had a children’s toy called a Super Ball and I probably interchanged the phonetics of “bowl” and “ball.”

But Fetter doesn’t believe that Hunt actually came up with the name. Going by Hunt’s account, by the time he said “Super Bowl,” the term was already starting to take off in newspapers to refer to the previously unnamed championship game. Fetter believes that there is no clear person to point to as the origin and instead the name was sort of collectively decided.

For what it’s worth, according to the Chiefs media page, Hunt is also credited with coming up using Roman numerals in the name and putting Coach Vince Lombardi’s name on the trophy.

Belichick says Patriots ‘followed every rule’

The New Magazine Every Socially Aware Person Needs to Read

As a recent graduate of Harvard, I am perhaps too familiar with particular, traditional metrics of success that have come to be embraced by our society — namely money and power. Even as I try to be on “my own path,” pursuing personal essay writing, meditation editorial leadership and poetry all at once, I still look for mentors who really seem to be pursuing “the Third Metric” — what Arianna Huffington describes as “a third measure of success” consisting of “four pillars”: well-being, wisdom, wonder and giving.
 
Well among those mentors, near and far, is a fellow Harvard graduate named Kayla E., the Texas-based editor-in-chief of what I’ll call the “up and coming” magazine Nat. Brut. I got to know Kayla at school, somewhat peripherally, as a cartoonist and multimedia artist. I figured she would scurry off to a prestigious MFA program, the same way I figured I would scurry off to a PhD program. Yet both of us seem to be taking the “road not taken,” in some fashion. I was pleased to reconnect with Kayla this year upon discovering her adventures with Nat. Brut. In short, I think anyone interested in reading, writing, making art, looking at art, most social issues from race to gender to the environment and more, humor and so on, should know a thing or two about Nat. Brut. To me, this magazine embodies the Third Metric in action.
 
According to Nat. Brut’s recent Kickstarter, which successfully raised the necessary funds to permit the mag to exist online and in print (!), Nat. Brut was initially founded in 2012 with a deceptively simple goal: “to publish literature and art online and free of charge, so long as it was good.”
 
Well, after Kayla and her partner Axel Severs assumed the helm of the Nat. Brut ship one year ago (January 2014), they’ve expanded their goals without losing site of their social mission. When push comes to shove, their foundational mission is to use the magazine as a fun and intellectually stimulating means to make the world (both literary and otherwise) a better place.
 
So how do they aim to do this? Well, Nat. Brut is the only magazine out there that is committed to being socially progressive, environmentally sustainable, and representative of a wide demographic range of artists, writers and other creators. And they want to make it accessible to everyone! 
 
Why am I highlighting Nat. Brut now, as an exemplar for the values of the Third Metric? Well, because so many of us who are, on some level, committed to “success” and achievement have this sense that art and literature should be a realm of our lives where a sense of intimidation is somehow equivalent to rigor. Well not only does Nat. Brut give us content that is whimsical while critical, inclusive while rigorous, accessible while sophisticated.
 
Get ready for Nat. Brut’s first print issue — Issue Five, coming out March 2015. The issue will feature a curation of found photos by Rebecca Weisberg, work by Susan Te Kahurangi King, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Koa Beck and Deborah Grant along with other artists and writers. Oh and I really meant it when I said Nat. Brut is environmentally sustainable: Issue Five will be printed on 100% recycled paper. And they don’t even work with distributors, meaning no issues will be disposed of.

For all of the feminists out there sick of reading literary magazines that embrace elitist, patriarchal values, you should be especially ready to get to know Nat.Brut. For the upcoming issue, 75% of the contributions are from female artists and writers. The mag is going to consist of comics (and the comic section will be in the form of a fold-out poster), four hefty artist features, two photo features, fiction, poetry, an interview, and a humor supplement called SALE! One of their other goals is to showcase interconnectivity of mediums, just as we all aim to embrace the interconnectivity of all aspects in our lives, successful or not.

10 Conversations Every Couple Should Have in the New Year

There are many articles that enumerate the types of conversations every couple needs to have prior to getting married, such as discussing their plans for how to parent, and their perspectives on money and religion. But I believe that there are 10 conversations that every couple needs to have on a regular basis in order to keep their emotional connection alive. They can help you realize what areas of their relationship may need to be worked on, whether this is done with more conversation or even with a couples counselor. In 2015, why not commit to having at least a few of these helpful conversations?

By the way, if you want to know when you would use these questions, a good thing to do is an Emotional Check In, which is a weekly time (yes, put it on your Outlook) that you and your spouse sit together for a a half hour, no more and no less, to discuss only how the relationship is going.  Many couples find this to be useful; it isn’t such a long time that the less emotionally expressive partner is terrified, and it is long enough for both people to feel heard. So try a weekly Emotional Check In, and use some of these questions during it. (Note: If you’re a devoted reader of this blog, you’ll realize that many of these are questions I use in my Functional Couple Fridays interviews.  So I walk the walk.)


we otter ask each other some of these questions We otter ask each other some of these questions

1. What do you love about me?
This question is wonderful to use on a regular basis.  It makes partners feel great to know that there are specific things about them that are valued and appreciated within their relationship.  Talking about this can bring partners back to the honeymoon stage, where all you ever did was talk about what you love about each other (and have sex). This conversation topic pumps out endorphins and makes both partners happy.

2.  What do I do regularly that makes you happy?
Not only does this give you the happiness benefits of having your effort noticed and recognized, but it can also be instructive to learn exactly what does and doesn’t resonate emotionally with your partner.  For example, if you’re busting your butt to get a delicious dinner on the table every night for your husband, but he never mentions this as something that makes him happy, maybe you can relax and order take out sometimes.  This can also lead into a productive discussion about love languages.

3. What is your favorite time we had together this week?
Note I didn’t say this month or today.  A week is a good unit because you can remember most things easily, but some days are going to go by in a normal relationship without many good things happening.  If you can’t think of any favorite time within seven days, that’s an indicator that you need to make more time as a couple, or that there are underlying issues with the relationship.  And reminiscing about good times together, even as recently as that morning or a week ago, builds feelings of intimacy and closeness.

4. What are you looking forward to doing together as a couple?
Looking forward to events can be even more enjoyable than the events themselves, according to research. So, figure out what you’re looking forward to, whether it’s tonight, next week, this summer, or as retirees. Or all of those! Talking about your plans together makes you feel like a team, and gives you positive thoughts to help you through tougher times in the relationship.

5. When did you first realize you loved me?
Another romantic one that brings you back to the hormone- and endorphin-fueled stages of early love.  These sorts of questions make people feel vulnerable and closely connected.

6. What do you think about our sex life?
This should be a frank and honest discussion, where both partners try their hardest to be non-defensive and non-judgmental.  If it was 20 years from now, wouldn’t you wish you had this open discussion today?  People have no idea what their partner wants if their partner won’t tell them outright.  I have treated couples where a man learned that a wife of decades never enjoyed or orgasmed from things he had been doing every time they had sex.  Don’t let this be you.

7. What do you think we have in common?
This discussion builds closeness and a team feeling.  Opposites don’t actually attract; in most basic ways, couples that succeed are fairly similar. Elaborate on the ways that you have similar thoughts, feelings, goals, values, and interests.  This will emphasize that you’re a unit, and reaffirm your choice in partner.

8. Which of our differences do you think complement each other?
In attachment theory, we’ve seen that avoidant partners often pair with preoccupied partners.  Similarly, assertive partners often pair with passive ones.  There are many ways in which two people with the exact same personality traits wouldn’t work.  One is often more laid back, one more responsible, one more intellectual, one more emotional, and so forth.  This conversation helps you learn more about your partner, as well as realize why it may not be a bad thing that your partner is different than you.  (Would you want to date you? Really? Completely?)

9. Do you trust me?
Many if not most couples have issues in their history that makes them wary of fully trusting the other, whether this is something huge like infidelity, or something like a partner picking their parent over you during arguments. Trust needs to be discussed, and each partner needs to make a good faith effort to repair trust that has been broken. Often, this can be done with a couples counselor, if open discussion does not work.

10. What concrete things could I do to make you happier?
This should be one to three things that a partner could reasonably do on a daily or monthly basis that would genuinely increase the other partner’s quality of life. Having more sex, cleaning or doing some chore on your wife’s timeline and specifications, scheduling more date nights, getting up with the kids, whatever.  Be open to trying new things with the goal of enriching your marriage and making your partner feel valued and cherished.

Hopefully those questions can make it into your conversation tonight.  Let me know how it goes, and share if you found this useful!  Till we meet again, I remain, The Blogapist Who Wants Your Marriage To Be Awesome.

The One Blazer Every Woman Needs In Her Closet

tux-blazer

Are you ready for this? I know it sounds crazy, but tuxedo blazers may very well change your life. We have always been fans of the classic schoolboy blazer, but a tuxedo version of the same kicks the trend up a notch and is, perhaps, our favorite transitional piece of the season.

Single or double-breasted, try to find a jacket that has a contrasting lapel. Opt for a totally classic option in all-black with a contrasting material like silk, or find a more graphic white blazer with black lapel and have a little more fun with the trend.

We have never been more serious when we say that this piece works for every part of your life. Throw it over a dress for work, style it with a t-shirt and jeans on the weekend, or pair it with a cocktail dress for all of those holiday parties you have on your calendar. Though perfect as an outerwear option on warmer fall days, a tux blazer is totally polished enough to be able to wear over a party dress for the duration of the evening.

Just in time for the holiday season, shop these 10 tux blazers below.

How do you style your tuxedo blazer? Let us know in the comments below.

8 Things Every Woman Should Know About Men Over 50

Don’t laugh, but one of my very favorite TV shows is Survivor. This season, the game has pitted family members against each other. The pairs that touch me the most are the couples who are forced to be on opposite teams.

It’s heart wrenching to see how much it tears a man apart to watch his wife be in danger when there is nothing he can do about it. I want you to understand how important it is to a man that he makes you feel safe and protected. It’s literally in his DNA to do this.

Growing up, we weren’t taught who men really are and what makes them tick. I know I wasn’t and, in the past, I made huge mistakes that ended up emasculating men. It’s what led me to helping women really understand who men are … especially men over 50.

That’s why these eight things about men over 50 are tips you can use right away in your dating life. These tips have made a huge difference in my both my life and the lives of my coaching clients.

1. Appreciate a man for who he is.

Men are wonderful but they aren’t women. They don’t think like women nor do they communicate like women. So don’t expect a man to act like a woman or you’re guaranteed to be disappointed.

2. Men over 50 are very masculine and they love when you bring this trait out in them.

Men have no interest in competing with you and that’s exactly what they see it as when you approach them as an Alpha Female. For a man, this is like dating another man and he isn’t interested in dating men. The key is learning to come into your true feminine power … one that compliments a man’s masculine power. When you do, he’ll jump through hoops to make you happy.

3. Men show you love with their actions.

Hollywood has messed with our heads on this one. On the big screen, they show us men like Tom Cruise’s character in the movie, Jerry McGuire. Think back to when he professed his love with the romantic words, “You complete me.”

Real men show you their love by cutting your grass and giving you their coats when you’re cold. If you expect love to come in words … you could be waiting a very long time.

4. Men want to give to you.

Let them open the door for you or change that light bulb you can’t reach. It makes them happy to please you. All they want in return is to be appreciated and thanked. If you do this, they’ll do anything you want, which leads us to number five.

5. Don’t criticize the job a man is doing for you.

He’s doing his best and, yes, you may be able to do it better or faster than he can but don’t. It makes him feel emasculated. If he has offered to do something for you, allow him to do it his way. Otherwise, the next time you ask for help, he’ll tell you to hire a handyman. He doesn’t want the aggravation of not being able to do anything right for you.

6. When you’re dating a man over 50, don’t place demands on how he must be or what he has to do in order to date you.

Men tell me again and again how much they dislike profiles of women who demand nothing less than the best restaurants or certain salaries to date them. Men have had enough demands put on them at work and from their ex’s. The last thing they want to do is meet yours before you’ve even met.

7. Don’t try and remodel a man by making him your pet project.

Either accept him for who he is or let him go and move on.

8. A lot of men over 50 are pretty insecure when it comes to asking you out.

Having been rejected time and time again by so many women, they aren’t too quick about putting themselves back in a vulnerable position unless it feels safe to do so.

If you like a man, encourage him with eye contact, a warm smile or a flirt online to let him know you’re interested.

Remember, men weren’t given a Dating Rulebook with their divorce papers either. So be kind to them and understand that as scared as you feel about dating, most of them are too.

The Little Lies You Tell Yourself Every Day, Gorgeously Illustrated

“I’ll get up early and go to the gym tomorrow.” “I’ll just have one cookie.” “Tonight I’m going to finish reading Infinite Jest instead of Netflixing ‘30 Rock’ again.” Sure you will! But don’t feel too bad if you don’t — we all, from time to time, make these optimistic promises to ourselves, knowing how likely we are to break them.

In her new book, Daily Dishonesty: The Beautiful Little Lies We Tell Ourselves Every Day (Abrams Image, September 2), Lauren Hom has brought this ubiquitous habit into the spotlight, crafting elegant, hand-lettered illustrations for common white lies we tell ourselves: “These heels don’t hurt”; “I’ll just have a salad”; “I’m over it.” It was her own tendency to embellish her future plans that inspired the project, she explains, saying that she and her roommate were describing what they intended to do with their free time when they realized they simply didn’t have any.

Hom’s illustrations play cleverly with our expectations of presentation versus message; as she notes, “When I first started Daily Dishonesty, I was just beginning to dabble in hand lettering and typography. I noticed that most of the work out there was beautiful, but the subject matter was kind of soft –­ mostly inspirational sayings and quotes from movies.“ By presenting an obviously tongue-in-cheek message in such traditionally Pinterest-quote packaging, the illustrations subtly satirize the pervasive inspirational-saying culture while nonetheless celebrating its aesthetics.

In a way, the book embodies this meeting place between snark and positivity, in spirit as well as in aesthetic. While it goodnaturedly punctures the widespread earnestness of Pinterest-y inspirational illustrating, suggesting that such beautiful, and beautifully delivered, messages are unlikely to be lived up to in reality, the illustrations themselves carry a note of (inspiring) comfort — after all, we may be lying to ourselves about the salad, but it’s okay; everyone is doing it. We’re all in this together. Hom herself points out, “These little lies have even become a part of our culture,” and not in a bad way. “They help us make light of life’s little quirks.”

After months of planning, walking down the aisle is a big deal for any bride. And at that point, any number of things could be going through her head, from “who is that sitting in the front row?” to “why am I doing this?” But there are a few at-the-altar thoughts that we think are pretty universal. Read on for our top 10.

1. “Don’t cry, your makeup is going to run.”

2. “Nevermind, this is amazing! Let the tears flow!”

3. “This dress is insanely [hot/itchy/tight/uncomfortable].”

4. “But damn, I look good.”

5. “Wait, does he/she think I look good? I hope so!”

6. “I sure hope the ring fits.”

7. “I’m marrying the hottest person alive.”

8. “I’m so in love!”

9. “Why is my [sister/aunt/friend from college] wearing that dress?”

10. “Actually I don’t care. I love everyone in this room!”

7 Ways to Practice Positivity and Optimism Every Day

By now the benefits of positive thinking are well established. Sages, psychologists, neuroscientists, researchers and doctors all have been espousing the benefits of positive thinking for hundreds of years.

Positive thinking helps us to be healthier, more productive and ultimately happier. Yet for most of us it is hard to practice optimism on a regular basis.

Relieving the states that make life miserable… has made building the states that make life worth living less of a priority. The time has finally arrived for a science that seeks to understand positive emotion, build strength and virtue, and provide guideposts for finding what Aristotle called the ‘good life.’ — Dr. Martin Seligman

I am fascinated by the human quest to understand the underpinnings of positive thinking. From Epictetus to Ralph Waldo Emerson to Buddha to Dr. Martin Seligman to Oprah, I seek every bit of inspiring wisdom I can to practice optimism.

Here are my seven essential mantras that I find helpful to keep myself on a positive track:

1. Guide Your Energy

“I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was.” — Muhammad Ali

According to quantum physics, our thoughts have a frequency and a corresponding unique vibration that attracts similar frequencies into our lives. So negative thinking attracts negative energy; positive thinking attracts positive energy.

Buddha, Aristotle and many others have suggested the same, how we think creates the energy that ultimately manifests our realities. If we go into a situation with a negative thought process then we are almost destined to have a negative outcome.

This also applies to group thinking or collective consciousness. When a collection of people together guides their mental energy for a positive outcome, the likelihood of their success is usually lot higher and than otherwise. Their collective energy attracts positivity or negativity.

2. Connect with Ourselves

Life is a process of ongoing transformation spurred by the interlinked qualities of curiosity, purpose, and courage. When you know yourself, you can act with a confidence that is your own.

The better we understand the nature of the world, the better we can move in the world. The better we understand the nature of ourselves, the better we can move within ourselves.

3. Practice Visualization

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.”– Buddha

Visualization is perhaps one of many attributes that assures one’s future. In the psychology community, creative visualization refers to the practice of seeking to affect the outer world by changing one’s thoughts and expectations.

Visualization is a technique used by winners in all walks of life. Our minds have an enormous capacity to connect the invisible dots to guide us to strive for the impossible.

4. Slow Down To Move Forward

“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves — slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. Live the actual moment.” — Thich Nhat Hanh

Sometimes we need to slow down in order to move forward. Slowing down is a deliberate choice that can lead to greater appreciation for life and a greater level of happiness, which yields better results in one’s endeavors.

Being truly in the moment allows us to escape from adversity and conserve our inner energy. Living in the moment doesn’t mean we don’t care about the future. It means that when we make a choice to do something, we focus on solely doing it, rather than letting our mind wander into the future (or the past).

5. Read, Write, Watch

Inspiration can come from anywhere and anyone. Mine often comes from books and movies — books and movies that combine life stories with a spiritual journey.

Writing allows us to consciously put these positive reaffirmations on paper to visualize our destiny. I have also found writing is therapeutic for coping with my adversities. It allows me to turn my anger, fear, and disappointments into inspiration for myself and my readers. It serves as stress relief when you try to turn negative into positive by finally expressing what you feel down deep inside.

6. Be Kind To Yourself

In his book, The Art of Happiness, His Holiness the fourteenth Dalai Lama wrote, “If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.”

It is particularly difficult to stay positive in the face of adversity and failure. For many, even though it may be easy to show compassion to others, it may be hard to accept, embrace, and be compassionate toward ourselves. Some of us blame others for all our miseries and some blame ourselves. Often it’s easy to blame oneself, feel sorry, and/or put oneself down. It is only through being able to let go, have compassion for oneself, and self-encouragement that we can pursue a path of positivity.

It is our trials and tribulations that make us who we are. Without compassion for ourselves we never find the awareness that allows us to nurture our true self.

7. Develop Resiliency

“In the end, if you are lucky, you see that our trials are what improve us. And if you are very lucky and somewhat insightful, you see that whatever your trial has been, it is exactly what you needed. Our trials make us who we are.” — Michael Morton

Positive people develop a mental capacity that allows them to adapt with ease during adversity. They develop a set of powerful mental traits.

Resiliency begins with adaptability, acceptance, and gratitude. Success and happiness does not always come from blasting through rocks and impediments, rather from having the faith, courage and ‘letting it happen’ attitude to cope with harsh realities of life.

Above all, positive and optimistic people lead themselves by constantly finding encouragement within their soul. They surround themselves with other positive people. And they inspire others despite their own personal adversity.

The more you give out positively, the more you get back.

Ikea Advertises Adoptable Dogs In Stores, Because Every Home Needs A Rescue Pup

Furniture might help make a living space comfortable, but nothing makes a house a home like a furry best friend.

With that in mind, some Ikea stores are now featuring cardboard cutouts of adoptable dogs in their showrooms amid the furniture, AFP Relaxnews reported. The cutouts have tags on them with QR codes that shoppers can scan to learn more about the individual dogs.

The idea to display the pets inside the store started in Singapore as a collaboration between Ikea and two animal shelters, according to Business Insider. Together they formed the project Home for Hope.

Now, an Ikea store in Tempe, Arizona, is joining in on the innovative plan to find homes for rescue animals.

“We thought it was a perfect way to show people what their home would look like with a pet in it,” Becky Blaine, Ikea Tempe’s marketing director, told the outlet.

All of the six animals featured in cutouts at the store in Tempe have now been adopted from the Arizona Humane Society, and more cutouts will be exhibited in the store at the end of the month, according to the outlet. At least eight pups have been adopted in Singapore so far, according to the Home for Hope website.

You Can Now Watch Every Episode Of ‘South Park’ On Hulu For Free

Sure, it’s great to catch reruns of “South Park” on Comedy Central. But what if you could watch any of its 247 episodes whenever you want, for free?

Now you can, thanks to the shows’ new partnership with Hulu. On Saturday, July 12 at the Television Critics Academy press tour, the streaming service announced that it will be the exclusive online home for “South Park” starting the same day. Up until the premiere of the show’s eighteenth season on September 24, every episode of the animated comedy will be available to watch for free. After Season 18 begins, there will still be some episodes available for free on both Hulu and the show’s official site, but only Hulu Plus subscribers will have access to the entire “South Park” library.

The streaming service also announced that its original series “East Los High,” a teen drama with an all Latino cast, has been renewed for a third season.

The Homemade Flour Cookbook: The Home Cook’s Guide to Milling Nutritious Flours and Creating Delicious Recipes with Every Grain, Legume, Nut, and S

The Homemade Flour Cookbook: The Home Cook’s Guide to Milling Nutritious Flours and Creating Delicious Recipes with Every Grain, Legume, Nut, and S


Have you heard? Milling at home can be less expensive and healthier than buying pre-ground flours Much of the flour that is sold in grocery stores has been stripped of its nutrients and has extra ingredients and preservatives added to prolong shelf life. Not only that, but some flours, like almond, can run as high as per bag There has to be a better way. There is with “The Homemade Flour Cookbook. “Erin Alderson will explore the different ways to grind flour including electric and non-electric grinders, food processors, blenders, and even coffee grinders, making it easy for any do-it-yourself homemaker to have fresh flour whenever needed. Try out great grain recipes like Cheddar Rosemary Farro Scones, Zucchini Feta Empanadas, Einkorn Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls, and Black Pepper Pasta with Goat Cheese and Pesto. There are also dozens of Gluten-Free recipes. Check out Butternut Squash and Goat Cheese Lasagna, Cheddar jalapeno quesadillas with quinoa tortillas, Berry Crisp with Oat Dumplings, or Buckwheat Dutch Baby with Maple Cherries There are even recipes for legume, nut, or seed flours. Flatbread with sun-dried tomato dip, Feta and Curried Red Lentil Dip, Honey Sunflower Biscuits with Jam and Dark Chocolate Dipped Almond Meal Biscotti are just a few of the recipes that you’ll make with your own hand-milled flour

23 Things Every Gay Man Should Do Before He Drops Dead

The website Queerty recently published a photo essay called “40 Things Every Gay Man Should Do Before Turning 40.” This is the latest in a line of such projects, including the bestselling book 1,000 Places to See Before You Die and the less-well-known pamphlet 600 Roadkill Recipes to Try Before You Vomit. Herewith I present “23 Things Every Gay Man Should Do Before He Drops Dead.”

Stop using the term “straight acting” (or “str8 acting,” for those who have ADHD). I hate to burst your bubble, dear, but bobbing for apples in another man’s crotch isn’t an act that most straight men get into.

(Knowingly) sleep with a gay Republican. I don’t claim to fully understand this gay Republican thing, but there seems to be an awful lot of them. Now, there are some sexy ones, so just to see how it feels to bang someone with an investment portfolio and no moral compass, give it a whirl! Disclaimer: You will have to burn the sheets afterwards.

Have a Joan Crawford film festival. I know there are plenty of classic Hollywood icons to choose from, and I adore Bette and Liz and Marilyn, but when it comes to deliciously bad, camp movie masterpieces, La Crawford takes the cake (and may just smash it into your face). Dive right into Torch Song (black face!), Strait-Jacket (ax murderess!), Johnny Guitar (dykey Western!), and Harriet Craig (her Ming vase!). Top it off with a viewing of Faye as Joan in Mommie Dearest, and the circle is complete.

Make up a new gay slang word. Here’s one: “Hobbitch,” a short, nasty homo with hairy feet. Or “hottifying,” describing something that is horrifying and gross but turns you on anyway. Or “Buttella,” a delicious dessert spread that tastes like ass.

Support your local call boy. And tip him well!

Grow up. Look, I know aging is difficult; I am going to be 34 32 at the end of the year, and I’m not thrilled. But let’s all show some dignity and maturity, shall we? For older gay men trying to retain that youthful visage of yore, please slow your roll with the injectables. I once went to get Botox and told the doctor that I wanted my face frozen, as in “total paralysis, like Christopher Reeve from the neck down.” I walked around for two weeks with one very droopy eyelid, which I blamed on an allergic reaction to a bee sting. Colony collapse disorder my ass!

Take a “gaycation.” There is still something unique and special about partying in a place where almost everybody else is an invert. (See how I threw that antiquated term in there?) Spend your dollars in Provincetown, Fire Island, and Key West before those locales are totally taken over by yuppies and baby strollers. The mombie apocalypse is coming!

Attend the Black Party. Because every homosexual needs to see a 4 a.m. stage show wherein a naked man sits on a safety cone onstage. Sits on it completely.

Do hot nude yoga. It will free you from your body issues. As an alternative, seek out hot rude yoga, where the instructor makes snarky comments about your love handles, or (my personal fave) hot nude Yoda, for all you Star Wars geeks.

Read. Try Dancer From the Dance, Faggots and Mr. Benson. Lordy, those disco bunnies carried on!

Go to the ball, Cinderella. Today’s balls may not be quite what they were in the good old Paris Is Burning days, but make no boo-boos, honey: There’s a whole new crop of children voguing, battling and serving face on the runway. Don’t get chopped!

Do some squats. ‘Cause I like guys with big butts.

Boycott anti-gay companies and groups. This list is constantly changing, but I believe current no-nos include Chick-fil-A, the Salvation Army and ExxonMobil.

Find a date for your fag hag. Bear in mind that you will have to find someone else to drive you home from the bar.

See Diana/Liza/Barbra perform live. Tick-tock, tick-tock…

Write a book. Share your story; every bit of our history that we can document is important. I’ve been meaning to do this for years, but all I keep coming up with are oddly irrelevant titles like Look Ma, No Glands: Story of a Hysterectomy.

Pick up a guy in person. Log off the PC, put away the phone and talk to someone who is actually in the same room as you! At no point should you ask him what his stats are or whether he can host.

Adopt a pet. Guys with rescue dogs and cats get laid more often, and by hotter men. I read that in a study somewhere, I swear! Also, it’s just an awesome thing to do.

Stop shopping. We get it, queen: You have the perfect home and the most au courant fashions, and you shit rubies. Now stop being a cog in the corporate enslavement machine!

Help gay youth. This is a big one, y’all. Sure, the kids seem all savvy and smart with their MySpace and Atari, but underneath they are insecure, naïve little lambs! Volunteer with groups like the Hetrick-Martin Institute, The Trevor Project and the Ali Forney Center. Just don’t pose for photos with them, ’cause bitch, you will look really old.

Demand that churches (and mosques and synagogues, etc.) be taxed. Religious institutions are just gigantic (and frequently anti-LGBT) political machines and corporate enterprises and should be taxed up to their gilded eyeballs.

Hold hands in public. Just not in front of me, please. I hate bitches who gloat.

Have a dinner party and only invite rabid Madonna fans and Gaga’s “little monsters.” Innocently toss out the question, “Who is the fiercest pop diva of all time?” and watch the bitches throw down. Meeeouwwwch!
