Gucci’s Susan Chokachi to be Honored at Make Equality Reality Gala

This year’s Make Equality Reality Gala will celebrate Gucci America president and chief executive officer Susan Chokachi along with A Breeze of Hope Foundation founder Brisa De Angulo, coinciding with the 25th anniversary of Equality Now.
The annual gala, to be held October 30 at Gotham Hall in New York, will be co-chaired by Gloria Steinem, Tara Lynda Guber, Susan Hassan, Chandra Jessee, Karen Lehner and Sue Smalley.
“I am proud to be part of a company that is fully committed to protecting human rights and fighting for gender equality,” Chokachi said of the recognition. “In 2013, Gucci founded Chime for Change to campaign for education, health and justice for girls and women all over the world, supporting the work of organizations like Equality Now, which are proving — often against extreme odds — that change is possible. It is an honor to partner with Equality Now, whose legal victories and landmark legislation wins have helped to change the course of history for so many girls and women.”
Equality Now was founded in 1992 as an international human rights organization working with the help of lawyers, activists and supporters to enable women and girls to live a life free from gender discrimination and things like sex trafficking,

Tips on Decorating Your Small Home’s Exterior

So you have a small house? Ironically enough, the most prominent limitation people face when it comes to “tiny houses” is the fact that they see lesser size as a limitation but this mentality is quickly changing. In addition to being fiscally friendly, small house designs also boast low maintenance, low stress vibes, and what’s so limiting about that? Keep reading for tips on how to strategically design and decorate the exterior of your small home.  

 

Keep it Tidy 

While some amount of shrubbery will lend a look of lusciousness and grandeur to any exterior, too much will take away from the home. With a small home in particular, overpowering greenery is going to end up making the home look scaled down, so your best bet is to landscape with a minimalistic mindset.  

 

Keep the Color Scheme Simple 

Light hues tend to reflect light better, so if you’re puzzling over what colors to choose to paint your home, including the accenting features and trim, think: gray, white, sage green or light blue. To personalize a light color scheme, get creative with accents, such as house numbers or your mailbox. Still stuck on what color to paint your home? You may like our article, The Best Hues for Your Home’s Exterior. (Link-article not published yet) 

 

Embrace Architectural Style 

It’s a common misconception that small homes can’t pull off unique architectural detailing. Contrary to that belief, when done tastefully, architectural features can actually bring out a sense of visual depth to the home which you simply couldn’t achieve with flat color and lack of detailing. Geometry is a good example of architectural detailing. 

 

Create a Focal Point  

The purpose of a focal point is to catch and draw the eye to a pre-specified location.  Keeping that location close to the low center will lend the illusion of depth to the exterior of your home. A good place to designate as your home’s focal point is your front door, and if you have one, your front porch.  

 

Enlarge Your Windows 

Designing your small home with large windows will benefit you twice over. For one, large windows will encourage more light and air flow within the home, lending it an airy and spacious vibe. From an exterior perspective, enlarged windows will enforce that coveted sense of depth we’ve been talking so much about.

Government Drops Its Demand for IP Addresses of Visitors to an Anti-Trump Website

The website-hosting service DreamHost has welcomed the Department of Justice’s decision to narrow its demand for information about visitors to an anti-Donald Trump website. However, the company said it will still fight the government over the case.

The site in question, DisruptJ20.org, was used to coordinate Washington, D.C. protests on January 20, the day of Trump’s inauguration. A couple hundred people were charged after rioting took place, and last week DreamHost–whose systems host the website–revealed that the Justice Department was trying to get at data that could be used to identify the site’s visitors.

One of the main things that led DreamHost to fight back was the fact that the DOJ wanted it to hand over a list of all the IP addresses that identify the computers used to access DisruptJ20.org. That’s around 1.3 million IP addresses in total, and DreamHost’s lawyers said the request was too broad.

On Tuesday, the Justice Department filed a brief in which it said it had previously not grasped “the extent of visitor data maintained by DreamHost that extends beyond the government’s singular focus in this case of investigating the planning, organization, and participation in the January 20, 2017 riot.”

Get Data Sheet, Fortune’s technology newsletter.

“The government has no interest in records relating to the 1.3 million IP addresses,” the brief stated. So now the government is not only shedding this aspect of its request; it also claims it will set aside and seal any information DreamHost hands over that is outside the scope of its warrant. However, it still wants information about the protest organizers’ identities and private messages, among other things.

DreamHost characterized the DOJ’s decision as a victory. “We see this as a huge win for internet privacy, and we absolutely appreciate the DOJ’s willingness to look at and reconsider both the scope and the depth of their original request for records. That’s all we asked them to do in the first place, honestly,” DreamHost wrote in a blog post.

However, the service said it still finds aspects of the Justice Department’s demand to be “problematic” under the first and fourth amendments, which respectively protect free speech and guard against unreasonable searches and seizures. It will argue its case in a hearing on Thursday.

“Before it was more or less a dragnet and a witch hunt and now it’s just a witch hunt,” Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) attorney Mark Rumold, whose digital rights organization has been supporting DreamHost in its fight, told Gizmodo. “It’s substantially narrower but they’re still after a substantial amount of content.”

The Swiss town that’s so beautiful, it actually banned social media

ADVERTISEMENT


The story of this town in Switzerland that banned photography raises two interesting questions: Why would a place that claims to be so beautiful and picturesque would consciously ban photography, which basically means these days that the pictures will not be shared on social media. After all it’s free publicity and could be great for their tourism. The second issue that arises is whether it legit for a town to decide that it doesn’t want people from the outside to take photos of the place? We guess we can’t really judge unless we pay a visit to this Instagrammable town that everyone is talking about lately.

The few snaps that we got to see of Bergün, Switzerland, kind of throw us back to The Sound of Music with the picturesque landscape and country feel. It seems like everywhere you look you see green, lots and lots of green. And cows. When it comes to owning up its beauty, Bergün does an excellent job. It’s like the pretty girl in the classroom that knows she’s that pretty. The Alpine panoramas, the fairytale landscape, and the easy-going atmosphere is what makes this town so visit-worthy. Now, you’re probably wondering, why in the world would the town’s council decide to ban photography if it’s so beautiful! Well, their reasons are actually pretty neat and prove to be very considerate.

You know that feeling where you sit at your work desk, scrolling down your Facebook homepage or checking out the latest Instagram stories and you run into at least five different pictures of people you know who are on holiday at the moment. The thing you’re thinking is ‘oh how I wish I was there.’ Well, this is exactly what Bergün is trying to avoid, the people of the stunning town don’t want anyone to experience holiday envy. And so, they decided to ban photography, and even more so, share those pictures on social media, so anyone who isn’t physically there, won’t be upset. It’s kind of nice and arrogant at the same time, but it’s still a very cool concept. Some would even say, a brilliant marketing strategy.

If you happen to visit this special town, you will see that the people there installed a sign that warns from posting any snaps of the stunning location to social media. Pretty unbelievable right?  The sign reads: ‘Photographs of our picturesque landscape, shared on social media, can make others unhappy because they themselves cannot be here.’ We think just this sign alone is worth taking a selfie with. The town’s mayor even took it a step further when he made a video explaining the rationale behind this very original decision. In the meantime, if a tourist is that desperate to take a picture, then they can get a special permit to do so.

While we don’t believe everyone has the chance to visit the mountainous town any time soon, here’s a few shots that somehow manage to slip out, we just hope we won’t get you too envious.

The Joker Is Getting An Origin Movie and You Won’t Believe Who’s Involved

The Joker is the greatest comic book villain of all time. If not the greatest, certainly the most recognizable. He’s been adapted to the screen multiple times but always as the antagonist. Sounds like DC Films is going to take a different route now and make an origin movie with the Clown Prince of Crime as the main character. And you won’t believe who is involved in this project.

Martin Scorsese. …WHAT?!?

Martin Scorsese is listed as a producer. Let that sink in. The director of Taxi DriverGoodfellasThe Wolf of Wall Street and countless other excellent films is producing a movie about the Joker. That is absolutely crazy. The idea that we’ll be able to listen to Scorsese’s thoughts and interpretations of the Joker fills me with absolute glee. Even if the movie turned out to be awful, we’d still get to hear the director of The King of Comedy talk about the freakin’ Joker!

Speaking of The King of Comedy, now might be a good time for you to look that up as it might very well play a part in how this origin story will approach the character…

But Scorsese isn’t the only surprising addition to this movie. Who will direct it?

Todd Phillips, Director of The Hangover Trilogy

You might recoil at that news at first, but Phillips isn’t actually a bad choice. The Hangover Part III was barely a comedy and veered further into a dark crime film. Add to that Phillips’s abrasive and often offensive sense of humor and his sensibilities seem strangely right for a story about the Joker.

The setting of the story sounds very intriguing. From Deadline:

“The intention is to make a gritty and grounded hard-boiled crime film set in early-’80s Gotham City that isn’t meant to feel like a DC movie as much as one of Scorsese’s films from that era, like Taxi Driver, Raging Bull or The King Of Comedy.”

That all sounds wacky in the best ways possible. Will the movie carve out its own new origin? Will it draw from classic comic stories such as The Killing Joke? So many questions!

But, there’s an even bigger takeaway from this news…

DC Might Start Making Non-Shared Universe Films

The word on the street is that this Joker film would start a new imprint of DC Films. What would that imprint do? Create standalone comic book movies that don’t tie into the DC Extended Universe.

That sounds AWESOME. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has made that particular filmmaking model the status quo when it comes to blockbuster adaptations. If DC decides to shake that structure and let artists come in and do whatever they want with comic book characters, it could lead to some risky, inventive, and excellent new films. If nothing else, this sounds like an exciting step back to the kind of comic book movies we used to enjoy. and if it runs parallel to the DCEU films, it could offer a variety of cool choices for fans and general audiences.

This is all breaking news and a lot to process, but as out of left field as this is, it’s also kind of exciting. Maybe this is the way the DC Films division can get back on track. We’ll keep our eyes and ears open on this one.

How to Reach Your Target Audience with Content Marketing

Content Marketing

No matter what business you are in, you must have a marketing strategy to get in front of your target audience. Attracting ideal clients and customers on a consistent basis is an art form that can be mastered. Content allows you to show your expertise in a non-invasive marketing way while adding value to your readers or viewers.

Here’s how to get started with content marketing and methods to reach your target audience:

 

(Image: iStock/andresr)

 

Start with the End in Mind

 

Most people miss this step. Although content marketing is non-promotional materials, think about the actions you want your readers or viewers to take after they consume your content. Do you want people to opt-in so you can grow your list? Or do you want people to share your video so you can grow your reach? The choice is yours, but make sure your content naturally leads to that specific action.

 

Identify Your Target Audience

 

With so much content available online now, you certainly don’t want to be just another marketer who randomly puts stuff out. Think about the people who are most likely to benefit from your product or service and create content specifically for them. This will allow you to build a target audience of people who will be excited to receive your content and potentially become a customer.

 

Set Your Value Intentions

 

Even if you have a call-to-action you want your readers or viewers to take, you will not get any results if they do not find the content valuable. If your goal is to be the go-to source for “new moms wanting to lose their pregnancy weight,” think about how you can solve one of their problems quickly with your content. Your target audience will appreciate the free value you give before you ask for the sale.

 

Pick Your Content Visibility Strategy

 

Putting in the work it takes to create useful and shareable content is not enough. You will need a strategy to get as many eyes as possible on your content. Not just any eyes, but the eyes of the people you serve with your product or service. When identifying who your target audience is, it’s good to find out where they hang out. There are many free (ex.: webinars, document sharing sites), paid (ex.: Facebook ads) and relationship strategies (ex.: colleagues, friends, etc.) to getting your content seen online. But all traffic is not created equal. You can choose and test a mix of content visibility strategies to see which one reaches your target audience the best.

Following these steps will help you choose your content’s call-to-action, the people you serve, one problem you can solve quickly, and traffic that reaches your target audience. Once you start putting out content, pay close attention to the data so you know what your audience likes to receive from you. Take what you’ve learned and implement it now so you can successfully reach your target audience with content marketing.

Is it actually possible to get rid of stretch marks? 

From preventative measures to how to get rid of them, here’s everything you need to know about stretch marks…

stretch marks
Rex

Stretch marks are a common body hang up that we’ve only recently started to embrace – and about time – we all have them.

Earlier this year, straight-talking model Chrissy Teigen got very real about self-love, calling for us all to be more accepting of our bodies.

‘I really want to be that person for you all, that says, “You don’t need that fucking shit,”‘ she explained to her followers. ‘I’ve been on shoots. I’ve been naked-to-naked with people. I will say that everyone has a stretch mark.’

She continued: ‘Every time I see that others have a stretch mark, I’m like, “Girl, yes!” It makes me feel better, and if more of us did that kind of shit, how many people would feel better?’

While it’s not the end of the world to have stretch marks, many people go to extreme lengths to try to get rid of them, but what actually are stretch marks?

While incredibly common, few of us know the ins and outs of stretch marks, so don’t sweat – we’ve got you covered. From why they come about to how you can treat them, here’s everything you need to know about stretch marks…

stretch marks

Rex

What are stretch marks?

Stretch marks are fine line scars (usually red/ purple in colour) that occur on the surface of the skin as a result of tearing from where the skin has been pulled by rapid growth or stretching.

Why do people get stretch marks?

There is a common misconception that stretch marks are a sign of weight gain, occurring a lot with pregnant women, but they are actually linked to all rapid weight or growth change. Stretch marks do not mean that the person is overweight, it simply means that they have torn their dermis, a layer of the skin that is strained and stretched during rapid growth.

Where is it possible to get stretch marks?

Stretch marks occur in the areas where skin is stretched during growth, most commonly appearing in the tummy, breasts, thighs and bum. It is also possible to get stretch marks in the upper arms, shoulders, back and sometimes on the face.

Do stretch marks vary in colour?

Stretch marks do vary in colour – when new they tend to be red/ purple in colour, before fading to a silver/ white shade over time.

Are stretch marks common?

Stretch marks are very common – as Chrissy Teigen says ‘everyone has a stretch mark’. As they occur during puberty, pregnancy and after rapid growth changes, it’s safe to say that most people over the age of eighteen will have a stretch mark somewhere.

How long do stretch marks last?

Stretch marks will never completely disappear, but they do fade over time, becoming much less noticeable as they age. You can usually expect them to fade from six months to a year after the lines have appeared.

How do you get rid of stretch marks?

Stretch marks generally tend to fade over time, with the colour turning from red/ purple to white/ silver. If however you are self-conscious about your stretch marks and are desperate to get rid of them, there are several options that might help to make them less visible.

Some people champion bio oil and moisturising products although these haven’t been scientifically proven to actually get rid of the scars. There are also special over-the-counter make up products designed to cover up stretch marks, while in more extreme cases, some people revert to laser therapy and cosmetic surgery.

‘Bad Boys 3’ Is DOA

In other news, please don’t hold your breath waiting for another installment of the highly successful Bad Boys franchise that starred Martin Lawrence and Will Smith.

After reportedly being in the works for months, and after losing a director AND a release date, most likely the film will ever make it to theaters.

“I don’t we’re going to get one, not the way everything’s turning out,” Lawrence tells EW. “Will is off doing another movie, and I don’t think it’s going to happen.”

OK, so what the heck happened? It was just last year that Smith said Bad Boys 3 was “very, very, very close” to happening. On top of that, Bad Boys 4 was already set for 2019.

We’re not giving up ’cause with all the money this franchise has made so far, there’s still hope. Right?

White Nationalism, White Polos

Nylon has an interesting article on the dress rules around the recent “Unite the White” rally, otherwise known as the Charlottesville alt-right rally/ white nationalism circle jerk. Essentially, Andrew Aglin of the Daily Stormer – a recently removed online watering hole for white supremacists – asked his followers to dress “hip, sexy, and appealing.” He added, “that means you have to go to the gym.” An excerpt from his post:

The worst look ever is a baggy T-shirt. Wear fitted T-shirts, where the sleeve goes to the middle of your bicep. It should not hang lower than base of your member.” His instructions continued: “Jeans should also be fitted. Not tight, just fitted … don’t ever wear shorts. Serious men in serious situations are not wearing shorts.”

The idea is to use clothes as a way to mainstream the alt-right’s horrendous ideas by having its adherents dress more like professional people, rather than slovenly racists. It’s an idea that white nationalist Richard Spencer has talked about in the past. In a 2003 Salon article, he was quoted as saying his followers need to pay closer attention to their appearances. If white nationalism means “being part of something that is crazed or ugly or vicious or just stupid, no one is going to want to be a part of it.” To counter the stereotype that people like him are “tattooed, illiterate rednecks” (his words), he wears sport coats and button-downs. 

Meanwhile, members of Vanguard America, a white nationalist organization, dress like President Trump when he’s playing golf

As Nylon notes, clothing tells a story about its wearers. This isn’t just a dress code; it’s a PR move to make the alt-right’s views seem more reasonable to people who could be sympathetic to their cause. 

A wolf dressed in sheep’s clothing is still very much a wolf, but the alt-right seems to be banking on the desire of the sheep to revere that wolf. Today’s white supremacists know how much image matters (even preferring the toned-down name ‘alt-right’), and they’re doing what they can, via a DIY uniform, to present a cohesive group that exists offline and not just via memes and internet threads. As Anglin writes, the image “matters more than our ideas.”

Nylon’s article is an interesting read on how clothing can advance and normalize ideas. Wired also published something today on how members of Stormfront are fighting over how the alt-right should have hid their Nazi armbands (apparently bad for PR). 

One of the odd things about this: neo-Nazis are adopting the language of what’s essentially preppy clothing, even though prep and Ivy Style have been largely shaped by Jewish American clothiers. With the exception of Brooks Brothers, all the big haberdasheries that built prep were founded by Jewish Americans – from Ralph Lauren to J. Press to Gant.

#BlackMamasMatter Draws Attention To Racial Disparity In Maternal Mortality Rates

black_woman_sad_original_53700

A Tuesday afternoon webinar has bought attention to the under-reported racial disparities in maternal mortality.

Black Mamas Matter: Reproductive Justice and Black Women’s Maternal Health was co-hosted by SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective and the Black Mamas Matter Alliance. The webinar caught Twitter’s attention as #BlackMamasMatter began trending on Tuesday afternoon:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines a pregnancy-related death as:

“The death of a woman while pregnant or within 1 year of pregnancy termination–regardless of the duration or site of the pregnancy–from any cause related to or aggravated by the pregnancy or its management, but not from accidental or incidental causes.”

According to the CDC, Black mothers are three to four times more likely than White moms to die from from complications during pregnancy or childbirth. In 2011, the CDC reported that Black women comprised 42.8 percent of deaths resulting from pregnancy or childbirth whereas White women constituted 12.8 percent of this population. The reports found that geography and workplace environments do have some bearing on these racial gaps.

In March, the Black Mamas Matter Alliance told Univision that systemic racism is clearly at play in these deaths.

“Black women are treated differently because of the color of their skin,” psychologist and researcher Fleda Jackson said in the Fusion documentary The Naked Truth: Death by Delivery which examines maternal mortality rates . “Many don’t know their rights and suffer abuses, and they don’t have insurance. And they also suffer from sexism. They are Black and they are women. There is no rest for them in these circumstances.”

ProPublica reports that the deaths of expectant or new Black moms are more difficult to to track on social media channels. The nonprofit organization also claims that among developed countries, the U.S. has the highest maternal mortality rates.

Organizations like the Healthy Start Organization of the Health Resources and Services Administration work towards reducing maternal mortality.

“Through our Healthy Start program we are also focusing on the neighborhoods that have the highest severe maternal morbidity rates in North and Central Brooklyn,” Assistant Commissioner at the New York City Health Department Dr. Deborah Kaplan told Univision Noticias in March. “We’re also supporting the prenatal care programs that help to reduce preterm births. We must talk about this injustice. We have a great opportunity to make a difference.”

What to Expect on Your Roofing Quote

Contractor-inspecting-roof-damage

When it comes to home improvement projects, nothing makes you feel more vulnerable than a roofing repair. Even if there are no major issues and it’s just time for a roof replacement, your roof is your first line of defense against the elements—and it’s also one of the more costly updates you’ll make to your home. On top of that, there’s also the roofing industry itself. It’s mostly occupied by reliable contractors, but it’s also known for some shady characters who will say and do anything just to make a quick buck.

Needless to say, it’s important that you get it right. But most of us don’t exactly have a degree in roofing repair. It’s hard to trust that your contractor is telling the truth, especially when you see the numbers on the roofing estimate. Luckily, we have you covered. The guide below should help you separate fiction from fact, and ensure that your next roofing project goes smoothly, from start to finish.

What’s in an Estimate?

Plenty of contractors will offer you a flat rate on a slip of paper by way of providing an estimate. This isn’t what you want in a contractor, though. Ideally, a roofing quote should contain an estimate of both the cost of materials and labor.

  • Materials Costs. Roofers and other contractors don’t charge you the market price for the materials they use. Instead, they typically add some markup, since this is how contractors afford the overhead for running a business. Unfortunately, it’s also where some contractors fudge the numbers. Some have no idea what materials actually cost, and know even less about what’s a fair markup value. However, you probably shouldn’t go with anyone who’s charging more than 30 percent markup for materials. But the market price for materials can differ a lot depending on your location, so it’s a good idea to check with a roofing supplier in your area to make sure your contractor is charging you a fair markup percentage. Before you do so, make sure you know both the type of shingles you want and the amount required by your roof. Roofs are typically measured in “squares,” and each square totals 100 square feet in roof surface.
  • Labor Costs. Any estimate you receive from a residential contractor—be it for a new roof or a kitchen remodel—should be broken down into labor costs, as well. Labor costs are typically further segmented into the cost to remove shingles and install new ones, and the cost to tear off old decking and replace it with new materials. Typically, it’s best to go with a contractor who can explain precisely what’s included in the labor costs.

Roof-replacement

Other Charges You May See on Your Roofing Estimate

Roofing is a pretty intense job, so you may see some other charges on your roofing quote, as well. This may include the cost of removing debris, the price of renting a dumpster to store debris while the workers go about the job, or the cost to transport materials from the supplier onto the roof. Always get the roofer to explain any additional charges on your quote. The more forthcoming they are with the details, the less likely it is that they’re giving you bad numbers.

An Estimate is Just That: An Estimate

A good roofer will do his or her best to provide you with an accurate representation of your project costs. But roofers can’t know everything. A quality roofer should have your home inspected in order to understand what they’re working with. They should also be able to explain the project scope—and any issues that may add to the project complexity—with you when they provide you with an estimate. They’ll recommend certain products that fit your budget and need, and possibly even show you samples of what those products look like.

There’s always a chance, however, that a roofer will find something unexpected when they begin working. This is especially the case with a full tear-off. Once the shingles come off, the roofer may notice that there are rotting or damaged spots on your decking, which can affect the cost of the job. However, many roofers include a small section of replacement decking in the materials estimate, so if it’s just a small issue, it may not affect the total that much.

Never Sign a Contract with a Roofer Who Hasn’t Performed an Inspection

The first step in every roofing project should be a thorough inspection. Roofers will check out the exterior of your roof, scoping out the shingles, flashing, and chimney, searching for signs of rot or damage on the underlayment. But a roofer worth his or her snuff will also have a look at the interior as well, which means investigating the insulation and ventilation of your attic—plus looking for water damage from leaks. This kind of multi-point inspection helps a roofer get a feel for what’s going on under the surface, and it can provide valuable information that will go into the roofer’s estimate.

The Cutthroat Price Isn’t Necessarily the Best Price

There’s truth in the familiar saying “you get what you pay for” and especially so when it comes to a home repair project like a reroof. It’s tempting to go with a contractor who gets you a great deal, but it often comes at the cost of quality, both in the materials and in the labor. In particular, if a roofer offers to waive or refund the cost of your insurance deductible, run for the hills. This is a scam tactic that is strictly illegal, and it can land you on the wrong side of your state’s insurance commissioner, making it difficult if not impossible to purchase homeowners insurance in the future.

Reroofing your home can feel like scary business, but the more you educate yourself about the process, the more protected you’ll be. To find out more about your project—and the expected costs—visit our roofing calculator today and get an online estimate. No more white-knuckling it!

Trying to Break the Smoking Habit? A $1 Price Increase May Help, Study Says

Cigarette smoking is a health-harming habit that many, unfortunately, find difficult to give up.

One factor that may help some kick the habit, however, is cost.

A recent study from Drexel University found that a dollar increase in the cost of cigarettes makes smokers 20% more likely to quit.

Researchers analyzed the habits of over 600 smokers from 2001 to 2012. They came from six different cities and ranged in age from 44 to 84.

“Given our findings, if an additional one dollar was added to the U.S. tobacco tax, it could amount to upwards of one million fewer smokers,” Amy Auchincloss, one of the study’s co-authors, said in an article in Drexel Now.

The study also found that heavy smokers (those who smoked more than half a pack daily) reduced the average amount of cigarettes they smoked each day by 35% with a $ 1 increase in price.

“Since heavy smokers smoke more cigarettes per day initially, they may feel the impact of a price increase to a greater degree and be more likely to cut back on the number of cigarettes they smoke on a daily basis,” Stephanie Mayne, another of the study’s co-authors, said in the Drexel Now article.

Even though the study focused on older smokers, Mayne said she thinks a price increase on cigarettes would have a similar or more significant effect on younger smokers.

The cost of a pack of cigarettes ranges from location to location. According to 2014 data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the lowest average cost of a pack — including taxes — was $ 5.06 in Missouri, and the highest was $ 10.56 in New York.

Of course, I probably don’t have to tell you that the true cost of smoking goes well beyond the price of a pack of cigarettes. Smoking is linked to a host of health problems — lung disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), coronary heart disease, stroke and more — which only increases the cost of health care for many smokers.

In fact, the CDC reports almost $ 170 billion is spent each year on direct medical care for adults due to smoking.

There are even reports that claim smokers have a harder time finding work and earn less on the job than nonsmokers.

Smoking is truly an addiction, which causes many to struggle with quitting, despite the negative physical and financial impacts. For free resources, tools and tips to help you quit, visit Smokefree.gov.
