Two Pressing Fab Finds

And now for something that isn’t style, but is somewhat style related. I don’t enjoy ironing, but I do it because I like the polished appearance of well-pressed clothing. I will absolutely re-iron an item before wearing it so that it looks perfect. We recently had to get a new iron and ironing board and I’m very happy with the choices we made. 

An extremely good iron and ironing board make the world of difference and, dare I say it, can make ironing a more enjoyable chore.

Muslim Stylist Hullema Reddick Finds Success In Haircare Business

According to a Pew Research Center estimate, Muslims comprise over 23% of the global population, but the haircare industry struggles to represent Muslim women. Haircare is for everyone; whether or not Muslim women choose to show their hair in public. Hullema Reddick, color stylist and owner of HStylez Hair studio in Philadelphia, is Muslim and wears a hijab which places her in a unique situation of acceptance—by both the beauty industry and her Muslim faith family. Known as “The Covered Colorist” Reddick has already grossed over $ 100,000 in sales in 2018 and continues to be a champion for Muslim women in the beauty industry.

 

The obvious lack of representation of Muslim women in the beauty industry has provided Reddick with an interesting perspective on being Muslim while also being a stylist. “It has enlightened me to the prejudices within the industry, and secondly it’s made me realize that women [Muslim and non-Muslim] are looking for meaningful and relatable inspiration,” says Reddick.

 

For Reddick, being able to provide relatable inspiration oftentimes comes with backlash from those in the Muslim community because of her chosen profession. Some view it as a contradiction to her religious belief.

 

“I am always confused about. I have yet to see where in Islam it says that we cannot beautify ourselves or be the source of the beautification process. Contrary to popular belief, it is one of the teachings of Islam that a woman should beautify herself, and look beautiful for her husband.”

 

To some, being fully covered from head to toe and being a stylist is considered taboo or unheard of. But as a small woman-owned business, Reddick does not allow the beauty industry to ostracize her, nor does she let those within her own community with an opposing view keep her from growing.

 

“I refuse to compromise my belief system just to fit in,” says Reddick. “I have had to make a stand that my talent speaks for itself and my appearance does not define me or my expertise.” Constantly evolving in her craft and enhancing her skills, Reddick finds new ways to create new looks. “I pride myself on giving a vibe you can’t find anywhere else. I pride myself in knowing that I am an artist.”

 

With a growing business and a focus on changing the perspective that Muslim women have no place in the beauty industry, Reddick has some very straightforward advice for young Muslim women interested in a similar career path.

 

“Remain firm in your belief and don’t compromise. Allow your creativity to open doors for you, and know with an unwavering sincerity that what’s for you is for you. What’s meant for you will not pass you. In addition, do not allow what people say discourage you. Not everyone is going to like what you’re doing, but keep in mind, you’re doing this for you not everyone else. Let what people can’t appreciate about you be that thing that makes you go harder.”

Tragic: Husband Finds Wife and Her Mechanic Lover Both Dead from Carbon Monoxide Poisoning After They Had Sex in the Garage [Video]

A New Jersey man came home Monday night to find both his wife and her lover dead in the garage.

The two died of carbon monoxide poisoning while having sex.

via People:

Kahali Johnson said he returned home that night and smelled a strong odor coming from the garage of his apartment, according to WABC. So, he went to investigate, WABC reported.

In the garage, Johnson said he found his wife, Tameka Hargrave, and their mechanic near a running vehicle.

“As I tried to step to open the last garage door, I see the mechanic, he’s laid out,” Johnson told the station. “She’s just a few feet away, she’s laid out. And pretty much I had to call 911 because, at this time, with that level of emissions, I knew that they were gone.”

Sources told KXAS that Hargrave, 39, and the unnamed mechanic, 59, were allegedly having sex in the car when they succumbed to carbon monoxide poisoning. Law enforcement sources reportedly told the station that Hargrave had allegedly been having sex with the mechanic in exchange for his car work.

The Newark Police Department did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Both were pronounced dead at the scene and police said the deaths appeared to be accidental, NJ.com reported. Newark Fire Division evacuated the building, and one person was taken to a local hospital, according to the publication.

As for Johnson, the grieving husband told WABC that he blames the apartment complex.

“Basically she died because of carbon monoxide,” Johnson said. “They do not have adequate alarm systems, because if there had been an alarm in that garage, people would have been alerted to the fact that it was going on.”

Sad.

Fab Finds: Casual Sandals

These casual and polished sandals have been recent winners on my clients and some forum members, and they received rave reviews online. There are many colours to browse in each of the styles, but unfortunately only one width. 

1. Franco Sarto Lorelia

I saw the red on a friend and they blew me away. The unique cut of the vamp straps is extremely flattering and elegant on the foot. The broad ankle strap is in the right position and works on most ankle widths. Quite comfy and best on regular volume feet. Low-volume feet can size down half a size for a snugger fit. Fabulous stable heel.

2. Caslon Claire Slingback Sandal

A classic, versatile and very comfortable Euro sandal in a bunch of colours that won’t break the bank. Cushioning footbed, super soft suede, and a little arch support provided by the baby wedge. A little wide for low-volume feet, but try sizing down. Best on regular and higher volume feet.

3. Vionic Solana

Like most Vionic shoes, these have great arch support, making them comfortable for feet with high arches. They’ll be extra comfy if you prefer to wear heels instead of flats. The velcro straps allow the adjustment of fit so try them if you have lower or higher volume feet. The ankle strap is in a flattering position and suits a range of ankle widths.

4. Mephisto Lise

These are well made and very comfy. The metallic effectively dresses up the cork wedge, and kicks the look up a notch. My petite client paired these with a gorgeous floral midi dress and looked like a million bucks. Works on lower and higher volume feet. Especially good for higher volume feet.

An Assortment of Fab Finds

Here’s a selection of items that have been unexpectedly good this season. It just goes to show that you never know where the next wardrobe winner will come from. Sometimes the most unexpected retailer surprises us, so don’t be too quick to cross them off your list. 

1. SPANX Thinstincts Mid Thigh Shorts

These have been a revelation for many of my clients. Gone are the days of shapewear being uncomfortable, constricting and bothersome. Thinstincts are soft, easy to pull on and off, comfortable, and breezy. They create just enough compression to smooth out the silhouette without sucking the living daylights out of you. You forget that you’re wearing them. My clients who were dead set against wearing any type of shapewear are wearing them several times a week. They work best with skirts, dresses and tailored trousers. They also create a secure feeling under dresses and skirts that otherwise might leave you feeling a little exposed.

2. Talbots Marseille Topper With Lace

The quality of this top is mesmerizing, especially since it’s knitted jersey. The drape is architectural, and the fabric extremely luxurious. The workmanship and finish made me gasp. The inside of the neck is bound with tape so that it doesn’t stretch out. The lace insets are as neat as can be. It looks like you’ve ironed it after it’s been hung dry and machine washed. THAT is quality.

I bought the navy and have worn it semi-tucked with olive utility pants. It runs big so size down. If you wear a regular US zero, size down to PP in petites because the XS will be too big. I wear mine more fluidly than the model. Available in plus sizes too.

3. Boden Dresses

I rave about my own Boden dresses, so my clients tried them too. They’ve been equally impressed with the quality, silhouette, LENGTH, colour assortment and size range. The cuts work for an assortment of body types. Many of the styles are machine washable, come in solids and patterns, and are CASUAL. Sizes range from petite to plus, and they offer longer lengths too.

4. Halogen Ruched Detail Sheath Dress

Oh my word, I couldn’t believe the fit and silhouette of this $ 69 dress. I had the black on a 5ft 10 size US10/12 client in a Large, and it took my breath away. The fit and drape is WOW. It’s fitted but does not cling. It looks body-con, but isn’t tight. It looked amazing dressed down with a denim jacket and dressy ballet flats. Now I want one too.

5. Everlane Leather Street Shoe

A stunningly streamlined sneaker-oxford hybrid that’s made in Italy. It’s the first casual sneaker, slip-on shoe that stays securely on my feet. It works well for lower and higher volume feet, and feet with gentler bunions. Comfortable, polished and versatile. Fits an orthotic if you size up. Read the rave reviews. I’m thinking about keeping a pair in white since they are GREAT for travelling and city walking.

6. Alfani Draped Cardigan

An excellent topper for sleeveless dresses and tops when you want a breezy and elegantly casual cover-up. They’re on sale and run a size big. All the colours are nice, and read the rave reviews.

7. Tommy Bahama Two Palms Linen Raw Edge Jacket

Another great topper to wear over sleeveless or short-sleeved dresses and tops if you need the coverage. It’s soft and pretty, and much more feminine and breezy than a classic denim jacket. It runs one to two sizes big so size down. Nicely made, and you must be at peace with the crease.

Chad Michael Murray Finds Out If His Late Grandmother was Murdered After Years of Mystery

Chad Michael Murray had never known the cause of death of his late grandmother — until now.

In fact, there were only two people who knew what exactly happened at the time of her death: his grandmother and her husband, his late grandfather, who was accused of her murder.

On Wednesday’s episode of Hollywood Medium With Tyler Henry, Murray, 36, finally got some closure about her death.

“There’s this feeling that grandpa would’ve said or verbalized something to people before he died and after he died, his words were changed. He’s like, ‘No, I’m not taking accountability for this. This isn’t right.’ There’s something wrong here with the narrative that’s put after,” Tyler Henry, 22, told the One Tree Hill alum.

“For some reason, they’re having me talk about grandma. They’re having me talk about a fall for some reason. I don’t know what this is,” Henry explained.

“The speculation from the stories that I got from my grandfather was that he was arrested for her murder,” the actor said. “She died at 17 and she just had my mother. She was found with her hands tied behind her back, hung in the basement. So there was a fall, just in a different way.”

“And then after that, he was cleared and they didn’t really have enough evidence to say, ‘It was you that did it.’ ”

RELATED: Why Hollywood Medium‘s Tyler Henry Says Connecting with Michael Jackson Was ‘Really Humbling’

But according to Henry, Murray’s late grandmother died by suicide.

“Before I got here, there was this woman who came through who I acknowledged passing away tragically. But it came through in a way of like, taking accountability to some extent for her actions,” Henry informed the American Drifter author. “But I’m thinking that it might have been even her way of kinda trying to come through and say, ‘Hey, this is something that I’m putting more on myself.’ So, I don’t think he killed your grandmother.”

After speaking with Henry and learning the details about his late grandmother’s death, Murray revealed, “I am, without a doubt, a believer,” adding, “He’s pretty damn good at it.”

Eva Longoria finds pregnancy ‘hard’

OHMYGOSSIP — Eva Longoria has admitted she is finding pregnancy “hard”.
The 43-year-old actress is set to become a mother for the first time when she gives birth to the baby boy she is expecting with her husband Jose “Pepe” Baston, and has said that she’s finding things difficult at the moment because she’s always “uncomfortable”.
She said: “Everything’s uncomfortable. It’s not just your belly – everything gets bigger. I’ve never seen my thighs so big, and my boobs, they’re in the way of everything. It’s hard.”
The ‘Desperate Housewives’ actress discovered she was pregnant whilst she was directing comedy series ‘The Mick’, and was concerned her cast and crew would think she was “lazy” for not being as fit as she usually is.
Speaking during an appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ on Tuesday (10.04.18), Eva said: “I was directing ‘The Mick’ – I direct a lot of comedies, and I was on set. I was really tired and really sick and I was like, ‘They must think I’m so lazy.’ But I was pregnant.”
Despite feeling uncomfortable throughout her pregnancy, the ‘Over Her Dead Body’ actress recently claimed being pregnant makes her feel empowered.
She said: “Having my life now with my son and living it with him is great. When I’m directing he is with me, at the Golden Globes he is with me. [It] makes me very happy.”
Meanwhile, Eva also recently revealed she hopes her unborn son will “applaud and honour” feminism, because she believes the world needs “more good men”.
She said: “We have this wonderful wave of future feminists coming into this world with a different view of what this global community we live in should look like. I’m so excited that I’m having a boy because I think the world needs more good men. This boy, my son, will be surrounded by very strong, educated, powerful women and I think it’s important that he sees those types of role models in his life so he knows how to support it, how to applaud it and how to honour it.”

Fab Finds: Tops, Shoes and a Bag

There’s a lot of good stuff out there at the moment, so much so that I’ve finished my own Spring and Summer refresh two months earlier than normal. My clients have been pleased with the more feminine, dressy and less oversized looks in stores, as well as the larger assortment of dresses with sleeves and hem length. Here are some items that have been winners on my clients recently.

1. White House Black Market Floral & Lace Twinset

The photos do not do this great look justice. The high-low blouse paired with the cardigan in the same pattern was SO fab on my client last week that I squealed in the dressing room. Leave the cardigan open in front. Nice quality, unique, easy, pulled together, crease-resistant, flattering and does not need a camisole. Smart casual or business casual. Fluid and tailored in the right places. The blouse is available across petite, regular and plus. The floral cardi is available in petite and regular. Size down.

2. Michael Stars Boat Neck Shine Knit Top

This is a GREAT tailored knit top. Flattering, comfortable, crisp and easy to launder. It’s more like a very light pullover than a tee. Much neater, dressier, and more pulled together and structured than a T-shirt. The fabric is substantial. Sleeve length is excellent. It layers beautifully under jackets, but looks good on its own because of the shine, fab fabric, and good fit. The boat neck is surprisingly bra-friendly. The size range is unfortunate since it comes in two sizes only. The XS/S will fit a US0 to 4, and the M/L will fit a US4 to 8. It runs true to size, and works well on a straighter or curvier body type. It’s long, so not good on petites and short waists unless it’s hemmed to a shorter length. Don’t try the top if you’re self-conscious about your midsection, because it might cling.

I don’t wear T-shirts and stick to blouses, shirts and and knitwear for tops. Very occasionally, I’ll find a knit top that ticks all the boxes, and this one did just that. I bought the white and the stripe to wear with jeans and Summer skirts both untucked and semi-tucked. The neckline works well with my chunky pearl necklaces. I love the subtle shine and the tailored fit. The XS/S is a more fluid fit on me than on the model. All the colours are nice.

3. Madewell Chambray Tops

A chambray top needn’t look like a menswear or cowboy shirt. Madewell has good chambray tops at the moment, and they’re versatile. The fabrics are not stiff and denim-y either. They’re soft, tencel, or cotton/linen blends.

The Wrap Top is fabulous with skirts, and best on those who can fill out the bust and/or shoulders. I looked awful in it because my narrow shoulders, long neck and regular size bust could not fill it out.

The Central Ruffle Sleeve Shirt has more structure around the neck and shoulders and looked much better on my body type, despite the oversized fit. The flutter sleeves also broaden my frame and I like the effect. The fabric is GORGEOUS and drapes very well, and it may have followed me home. Size down a size.

4. Cosima Circle Bag

This bag is very cute. It can be used as a crossbody or satchel. It’s faux leather, well made, relatively affordable, lightweight, and roomier than it looks. All the colours are nice, and not as bright in person as in the pictures.

5. Hispanita Footwear

I can’t rave enough about Hispanita footwear. Made in Spain, the aesthetic is Euro and somewhat Mediterranean. Refined and dressy, and with many walkable heel heights and silhouettes that are a little different to the norm. They are beautifully made, and most of the styles are very comfortable. Super soft leather, a cushioning footbed, enough support, and room for an orthotic if your feet aren’t too wide. The styles can fit both a higher and lower volume foot if you go up or down in size — the cut of the shoe is that good. A little pricey but you’re getting a quality item. I bought a pair of floral oxfords last year and they’re smashing. I always have my eye on this brand.

‘The Crown’ finds a new Prince Philip in this ‘Outlander’ actor

TwitterFacebook

Out with the old and in with the new: a new Prince Philip just rolled into the royal court, and he’s a very familiar face to Outlander fans.

Tobias Menzies, the talented actor in the Starz show behind both Jack and Frank Randall, joins the Netflix cast of The Crown for its upcoming Season 3. Those familiar with Outlander know that Menzies can really ride the line between a perfect British gentleman, and an abhorrently vindictive human being — which is perfect for Philip’s characterization in this fictionalization of the royal family.

New Study Finds Diverse Audiences Drive Blockbusters

Zinzi Evans, left, and Ryan Coogler gesture the “Wakanda Forever” symbol from the film “Black Panther” as they arrive at the world premiere of “A Wrinkle in Time” at the El Capitan Theatre on Monday, Feb. 26, 2018, in Los Angeles. 

NEW YORK (AP) — Just as “Black Panther” is setting records at the box office, a new study finds that diverse audiences are driving most of the biggest blockbusters and many of the most-watched hits on television.

UCLA’s Bunche Center released its fifth annual study on diversity in the entertainment industry Tuesday, unveiling an analysis of the top 200 theatrical film releases of 2016 and 1,251 broadcast, cable and digital platform TV shows from the 2015-2016 season. Among its results: minorities accounted for the majority of ticket buyers for five of the top 10 films at the global box office, and half of ticket buyers for two more of the top 10.

Researchers found that minorities remain underrepresented in film leads (13.9 percent), film directors (12.6 percent), film writers (8.1 percent), broadcast scripted leads (18.7 percent), cable scripted leads (20.2 percent) and digital series leads (12.9 percent).

Many of those totals do represent some modest gains, especially when viewed across five years. (Minority leads on broadcast TV shows increased from 5.1 percent to 15.7 over the last five years, according to UCLA’s studies.) But other areas — especially behind the camera — have seen only slight or no improvement.

“There has been some progress, undeniably. Things are not what they were five years ago,” said Darnell Hunt, co-author of the report and director of the center, which focuses on African American studies, at the University of California, Los Angeles. “People are actually talking about diversity today as a bottom-line imperative as opposed to just the right thing to do. We’ve amassed enough evidence now that diversity does, in fact, sell.”

Minorities make up nearly 40 percent of the U.S. population, but Hispanic and African-American moviegoers over-index among moviegoers. According to the Motion Picture Association of America, Latinos make up 18 percent of the U.S. population but account for 23 percent of frequent moviegoers. Though African Americans are 12 percent of the population, they make up 15 percent of frequent moviegoers.

UCLA found that films with casts that were 21 to 30 percent minority regularly performed better at the box office than films with the most racially and ethnically homogenous casts.

Hunt believes that the wealth of data, as well as box-office successes like “Black Panther,” has made obvious the financial benefits of films that better reflect the racial makeup of the American population.

“I think the industry has finally gotten the memo, at least on the screen in most cases, if not behind the camera,” said Hunt. “That’s where there are the most missed opportunities.”

The report, titled “Five Years of Progress and Missed Opportunities,” covers a period of some historic high points for Hollywood, including the release of the best picture-winning “Moonlight,” along with fellow Oscar nominees “Hidden Figures” and “Fences.”

But researchers found the overall statistical portrait of the industry, while slightly improving on many counts, still trails far behind the entertainment audience.

“With each milestone achievement, we chip away at some of the myths about what’s possible and what’s not,” said Hunt. “Every time a film like this does really well, every time we see a TV show like ‘Empire,’ it makes it harder for them to make the argument that you can’t have a viable film with a lead of color. Or you can’t have a universally appealing show with a predominantly minority cast.

It’s just not true anymore because the mainstream, itself, is diverse.”

Some of the largest disparities for minorities detailed by the UCLA report were in roles like film writers (8.1 percent of 2016’s top films), creators of broadcast scripted shows (7.1 percent) and creators of cable scripted shows (7.3 percent). Hunt blamed the lag behind the camera on, among other factors, executive ranks that are still overwhelmingly white and male.

“It’s a white-male controlled industry and it hasn’t yet figured out how to incorporate other decision-makers of color and women into the process. So you have these momentary exceptions to the rule,” said Hunt, pointing to “Black Panther,” which has grossed $ 700 million worldwide in two weeks of release.

Such films, he said, show the considerable economic sense of making movies and television series that don’t ignore nearly half of their potential audience.

“It’s business 101,” Hunt said.

Five Fab Finds for Spring & Summer

These somewhat simple and versatile items are not to be underestimated because they can become wardrobe workhorses. There are lots of colour and size options, and they won’t break the bank. 

1. Gap Denim Jackets

Gap does GREAT denim jackets across an assortment of vibes, lengths, washes and silhouettes. Most impressively, they stock sizes XS to XXL across petite, regular and tall. The XXL tends to fit a size US16/18. The XS is a little roomy when you need a narrower fit. Some of my clients bought Gap denim jackets with me eleven years ago, and they’re still going strong.

Personally, denim jackets are my thing and therefore a very important wardrobe essential and workhorse. I have several across a range of washes, lengths, and fits. They are my favourite way to dress down a dressy dress or skirt. I like to wear them with olive utility pants and patterned pants too. I will also sport them with all sorts of jeans, and layer them under a coat.

2. Boden Swimwear

Boden swimwear is extremely well made, superb quality, and fits well. Bless them for providing lots of colour options, and making silhouettes that support the bust and create coverage in an alluring and flattering way. Most of their tops and bottoms can be mixed and matched. Their tops come in bra sizes, and suits go up to a US16, and fit true to size.

After a month of online swimwear shopping, in which I was as picky as can be, it was Boden’s Alacati Bikini Top with the matching Bikini Shorts in navy polka dots that earned a place in my wardrobe. It’s wonderfully Modern Retro and ticked off all the boxes. I am so sorted.

3. Halogen Linen Maxi Cardigans

Clients are very fond of these lightweight and comfy maxi cardigans that work extremely well as a quick slimming and elongating casual topper over all sorts of sleeveless tops, dresses and sheer blouses. Versatile, breathable, and machine washable. Comes in petites, and the XL fits a US16. Works well on a larger bust. Read the rave reviews

4. Banana Republic Knit Wrap-Front Top

The silhouette has been around for a while, but seldom in a substantial knit that creates an angular drape and is a little more structured on the hips. The structured cuffs on the sleeves are lovely, and diagonal lines are magically flattering. This silhouette works well on a larger bust, broad shoulder line, and shorter neck. The top looked awful on my narrow shoulders, long neck and regular size bust, so there you go. Great with wide crops or culottes.

5. Converse Leather Fleece-Lined Hi-Tops

I can’t rave enough about these hi-tops because the fleece lining and leather fabric makes them EXTREMELY comfortable, supportive and warm. Their iconic and Modern Retro timeless look tickles my toes. They fit both a lower and higher volume foot, and any width ankle. The grippy soles make them great for walking on ice and light snow. I have the black and cream and walked cities flat in them. I also walk or Yorkie Sam in them daily in Winter. They are my casual Winter travelling shoes, and I’m thinking of duplicating the cream.

SIDS risk higher in some states, study finds

by

Claudia Boyd-Barrett

posted in Parenting

Babies are at higher risk of dying unexpectedly in their sleep if they live in certain states, according to a new study.

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and other unexpected deaths during sleep before age 1, such as from accidental suffocation, have declined dramatically since 1994. That’s when health officials began urging parents to put babies to sleep on their backs.

But, according to new research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), most of the drop happened before the year 2000, and in recent years rates of sudden, unexpected infant death have plateaued and, in some states, have actually gone up.

If you live in California, Colorado, the District of Columbia, Florida, Kansas, Missouri, New York, Oregon, Washington or Wisconsin you can breath a sigh of relief. All these regions have experienced a significant drop in sudden infant death rates since 2000. (In the District of Columbia for example, the rate dropped by almost 45 % between 2000 and 2015).

But Alaska, Arkansas, Alabama, Kentucky and Louisiana are not doing so well. These states have the highest rates of sudden infant deaths in the country – more than 150 babies per 100,000 births – and these rates increased between 2000 and 2015, according to the study published in the journal Pediatrics.

Baby-sleeping

The big question is, why? Unfortunately, the researchers aren’t sure, but they do have some ideas. One reason could be that moms and babies have better access to healthcare in the states with lower sudden infant death rates, the authors wrote. Or it could be the better performing states have more programs in place to educate parents about safe sleep practices.

Another reason could be higher smoking rates in states with more sudden infant deaths, or rising problems with opioid addiction, which can put babies’ health at risk, the authors suggested.

It will take more research to figure out the answer. In the meantime, you can help protect your baby by following safe sleep recommendations, including:

• Put your baby to sleep on her back

• Use a firm sleeping surface that’s free of pillows, stuffed animals, and soft bedding

• Sleep in the same room – but not the same bed – as your baby

• Don’t let your baby fall asleep on a couch, armchair, or any other plush surface

• Get regular prenatal care

• Don’t smoke, drink alcohol, or use illegal drugs during pregnancy

• Keep your baby away from cigarette smoke

• Make sure your baby gets all recommended vaccinations

• Breastfeed if you can

Does your state have a high, or low, sudden infant death rate? What do you think your state is doing right, or wrong, when it comes to protecting babies’ health?

Only One-Third of Patients Diagnosed with Depression Start Treatment, Kaiser Permanente Study Finds

PORTLAND, Ore. — Despite the wide availability of effective treatments for depression and a growing effort nationwide to detect and begin treating depression during primary care visits, only about one-third of individuals newly diagnosed with depression start treatment, according to a Kaiser Permanente study published today in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.

More than 16 million U.S. adults experience an episode of major depression each year, and it is one of the country’s costliest public health conditions. The annual cost of depression-related medical care and lost productivity is estimated at $ 210 billion.

The researchers found that out of a total of more than 240,000 patients who received a new diagnosis of depression in a primary care setting, 35.7 percent initiated antidepressant medication or psychotherapy within 90 days of their diagnosis. Among those with more severe depression, about half started treatment.

In addition, the researchers discovered stark differences between racial and ethnic groups and age groups. The odds of Asians, non-Hispanic blacks, and Hispanics starting treatment were at least 30 percent lower than non-Hispanic whites. The study also found that patients who were 60 years or older at the time of diagnosis were half as likely to begin treatment as patients under the age of 44.

Beth Waitzfelder, PhD

“There was some older, more limited evidence that many people who are diagnosed with depression do not begin treatment, for reasons ranging from stigma to challenges accessing behavioral health services,” said Beth Waitzfelder, PhD, lead author and investigator with the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research in Honolulu. She added that additional evidence has shown that some patient populations are particularly vulnerable to being untreated.

“Our study, which was much larger than previous studies, provides important new evidence about the current scope of the problem among leading health care systems across the country that are striving to improve depression care in primary care settings,” said Waitzfelder.

“Screening for depression in primary care is a positive step toward improving detection, treatment and outcome for depression, but disparities persist. We need a better understanding of the patient and other factors that influence treatment initiation.”

Using electronic health records, insurance claims and demographic data, the researchers studied patients who received a new diagnosis of depression in primary care settings in five large health care systems between 2010 and 2013. These organizations, including Kaiser Permanente and HealthPartners — are all members of the Mental Health Research Network, a consortium of 13 health care systems that, together, provide care for more than 12 million people.

For patients who did initiate treatment, more than 80 percent started antidepressant medication rather than psychotherapy. The researchers found that older patients were less likely to choose psychotherapy, with 25 percent of patients age 18-29 starting counseling, compared to 7 percent of patients age 75 and older. All racial and ethnic minorities were more likely than non-Hispanic whites to start psychotherapy rather than medication — an important reminder that health care providers and organizations need to consider the preferences of patients when developing treatment strategies and recommendations.

“Over the last decade, there has been a growing effort to raise awareness about mental health and to integrate mental health care into primary care,” said Waitzfelder. “This is a positive development, since most people receive care from primary care providers. However, our study shows there is a lot more work to do to understand why many depressed patients do not begin treatment.”

To address low rates of initiation of treatment for depression, Kaiser Permanente is currently deploying a novel depression care management program that brings depression treatment into primary care. A team of professionals works with a primary care physician and psychiatrist to create a customized care plan and track newly diagnosed patients, according to Don Mordecai, MD, Kaiser Permanente’s national leader for Mental Health and Wellness.

The above study was conducted under the auspices of the Mental Health Research Network, supported by the National Institutes of Mental Health Cooperative Agreement U19MH092201.

Kaiser Permanente Study Finds Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Is Cost-Effective for Teens Who Decline Antidepressants

PORTLAND, Ore. — Cognitive behavioral therapy (or CBT) delivered in a primary care setting is a cost-effective way to treat adolescents with depression who decline or quickly stop using antidepressants, according to a Kaiser Permanente study published today in the journal Pediatrics.

This work builds upon previous research, also published in Pediatrics, showing that CBT improved time to diagnostic recovery from major depression for teenagers who received CBT in their primary care clinic. Participants who received CBT learned how to modify their behaviors, challenge their unrealistic and negative beliefs, and think more positively.

Depression is a widespread and costly health problem in the U.S., with one estimate placing the total economic burden of depression at more than $ 210 billion annually. Among adolescents, the prevalence of depression is on the rise. Antidepressant medications are the usual course of treatment for adolescents diagnosed with depression, but as many as half of families with a depressed child choose not to begin antidepressant therapy. And among those who do begin treatment, nearly half do not continue, for reasons including side effects, lack of benefit and cost.

“Untreated or undertreated depression is a serious burden for many adolescents and their families, and the impact is often felt for many years after diagnosis,” said John Dickerson, PhD, a health economist at the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research and lead author of the new publication. “Now we have evidence that CBT is not only clinically effective, but cost-effective as well. This is good news for patients, their families and health care systems.”

In their new analysis, the study team showed that over a two-year period, depression-related health care costs for adolescents who received CBT were about $ 5,000 less on average than depressed adolescents in the control group, who received usual care without CBT.

Researchers examined depression-related costs from a societal perspective, meaning they accounted for costs experienced by patients and their families in addition to the costs borne by the health care system. In addition to the cost of delivering the CBT intervention to patients, researchers examined the cost of mental health-related inpatient hospital stays, a wide variety of medical and mental health services, and the time that parents spent taking their children to services, among other factors.

The study, which included 212 adolescents who received care in Kaiser Permanente primary care clinics in Oregon and Washington, showed that a CBT intervention can be brief and still deliver long-term benefits in terms of cost and clinical outcomes.

“Most other studies of CBT for depressed youths that we looked at involved a much longer treatment program than the one we tested,” Dickerson explained. “We chose to test a ‘lean’ model with a smaller number of CBT sessions because such a model is more likely to be adopted by health care organizations. It’s important for health systems and families to know that a brief CBT program is likely to improve mental health outcomes for depressed adolescents who decline antidepressants, and is also likely to be cost-effective over time.”

The study was funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Mental Health (R01-MH73918) and was led by Greg Clarke, PhD, of the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research.

Additional authors include Frances Lynch, PhD, Michael Leo, PhD. John Pearson, MD, and Greg Clarke, PhD, from the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research in Portland, Ore.; and Lynn DeBar, PhD, from the Kaiser Permanente Health Research Institute in Seattle.

Corker Finds ‘Newfound Empathy’ for Trump

Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) on Thursday said he has developed a “newfound empathy” for President Trump over reports of a “Corker kickback” that some critics allege inspired the lawmaker to change his vote on the tax reform bill. Corker, who before this week was among Trump’s more vocal Republican critics, has slightly changed his tune, telling Fox & Friends that he was upset watching a “totally debunked story” spread across multiple outlets. “The guys that actually wrote this bill knew I had nothing whatsoever to do with it. But then you have this reporter who says this. All of a sudden people that I respect in the news media, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, people start printing this as if it’s true,” Corker continued. “A social media phenomenon generates from this, and I’ve never ever used in my life the word ‘fake news’ until today. I actually understand what it is the president has been dealing with.”

Fab Finds: Shoes, Tops & Jewellery

Here are some items that have worked well for my clients recently. Some of them are simple and basic. Sometimes, we overlook how effectively simple silhouettes can be when they are dressed up and down, layered, amped up with accessories, or making a statement piece shine. They may look “boring” or uninteresting on their own, but remember to give them a chance because they can be fabulous in an outfit.

1. Blondo Ida Waterproof Bootie

Puddle, ice and light snow-proof with grippy non-slip and flexible soles. Visually sleek and very comfortable. Works for a wider volume foot, especially if you size up half a size. Low volume feet need to wear thick socks and add an insole. I vote charcoal grey as the best colour of the lot. Very deserving of the rave reviews.

2. Ann Taylor Faux Wrap Knit Top

A lovely modern classic with good drape. It has been SUCH a breath of fresh air to see clients wear tailored pieces like this wrap top for a change. It works well both tucked and untucked. Traditionally flattering. Works on a larger and smaller bust. As good on a straighter figure as it is on a curvier figure. Defines the waist of a rectangular figure, and accentuates the waist or an hourglass. Not good for muffin top.

3. Gentle Souls Ethan Pump

Dandy Fabness. More of a heeled loafer than a pump. It’s gloriously comfortable, super soft, and does not squish your toes. The stable block heel is magical. Visually, it shortens the foot a little, which might look stumpy so consider yourself warned. All the colours are nice. The gold is considerably brighter than the metallic brown or black patent. Works quite well for higher volume feet. My low volume feet were very happy and the gold followed me home as potential holiday party shoes. They are a good match with cropped jeans and trousers, and an unexpected match with dresses. I like them with dresses, and did not find them stumpy.

4. COS Roll-Neck Merino Jumper

Turtlenecks are a wardrobe essential for my style, and there are many to choose from each season. Despite their abundance, the ones that fit around the neck the way I want them to are rare. I like a tight, neat and polished fit around my neck, and most are sloppy. I also prefer knitwear to jersey knit. This turtleneck has a fantastic fit around the neck and is an item of knitwear. The body is as fluid as seen in the pics. The length is quite long, and looks good worn out over streamlined bottoms (not semi-tucked). The burgundy is a rich wine red in person, and that’s the one that earned a place in my wardrobe.

5. Madewell Gold Jewellery

Madewell does great clothing, but they do equally good casual and interesting gold jewellery. It’s well made, usually a brushed gold, and quite unique. The pieces are playful and delicately architectural. Clients often purchase a fun piece when we’re in the store shopping for jeans and tops.

6. Banana Republic Cropped Stretch Velveteen Pants

Many of my clients bought these, and almost all in the burgundy, and I did too. Very comfortable, warm, and with a forgiving fit on the tights, belly area and bottom. Fits a straighter and gently curvy body type quite well. The clever stretch is in the right place, and the thick fabric helps. They do not bag out. They are okay on larger calves when you wear a larger size. Available in longs and shorts. Tall girls should get the longs. They are NOT a casual ribbed corduroy, but a fun, on trend and very wearable velveteen. They look both casual and dressy. For me, they are an alternative to dark wash jeans that I wear at any time of day. NICE to change things up. The burgundy is less eggplant in person. The fit, length and drape is quite accurate in the video.

Fourteen Fab Finds

Here’s a rundown of handy items that have been winners on my clients recently. Many of them span a range of sizes, colours and silhouettes, and some are very competitively priced. Some are statement items, and some are wardrobe basics or essentials. Some are dressy, while others very casual. Each of them might fill a wardrobe whole, or embellish your party capsule. 

1. Boden Lorna Velvet Pencil Skirt

STUNNING quality skirt in luxurious fabric. Looks designer, and there’s plenty of length. Form-fitting but not body-con. Comfortable, and substantial. The length is sufficiently tailored at the hem so NOT dowdy. The slight stretch in the fabric makes the fit work on a range of body types (curvier and straighter). The sizes run small in the smaller sizes and true to size in the larger sizes. Goes up to a US18, and comes in petites. Forget the black – ink and wine are the way to go. Scrumptiously chic colours. 

2. Sole Society Faux Fur Wrap 

Well made, GREAT fit, Modern Retro and dramatic. Amazing assortment of colours and will not date. The wrap looks super over a gown, coat, suit or party dress, but even over a blazer or moto jacket with jeans – or over a blouse and pullover with skirt or trousers. I fitted the ink blue wrap over my ink blue Boden polka dot blazer and loved the tonal vibe. Wear it as a wrap or scarf. I have a slight frame with narrow shoulders and do not feel overwhelmed in this wrap. 

3. Uniqlo Heattech Fleece T-Shirt 

AMAZING fabric, and fab tailored to gently fluid fit. Well made and feels heavenly against the skin. Does not look like thermal undies, and can be worn on its own or as a layering item under a jacket or vest. Might run a size small. Sleeves are very long, but are an easy alteration to shorten. Lots of fun neutrals and non-neutrals.  

4. Sole Society Velvet Foldover Clutch 

An affordable on-trend velvet clutch with a convertible shoulder strap. Quite roomy, and fits large cell phones with ease. All the colours are nice.

5. Sejour Leather Moto  

Fabulous tailored moto for a large bust and curvy body type. Works well on an apple shape too. Good over dresses, skirts, or with trousers and jeans. There are very similar styles in olive and black.

6. White House Black Market Rose Print Jacquard Separates 

These separates are easy and lovely to wear to a holiday party, or “from desk to dinner”. The burgundy is slightly lighter in person, although looks as dark as is shown here at night. The jacquard is soft with some stretch, making it comfortable and non-crease. The items are available in petite, regular, long and plus. The pants are ALSO available in a curvy fit. Add a black support act, and you’re good to go, although I’d prefer to see the burgundy with a shade of blue, tomato red, burnt orange or cranberry. 

7. Emerson Rose Jacquard Jacket 

When you look for a dressy coat with a forgiving fit to pop over cocktail or formal wear, you usually can’t find it. NOW is the time to look for items like that, and this is a fabulous option. The slight cocoon cut makes it work on a range of body types. The three-quarter sleeves are fine layered over long sleeves. As good over jeans, or over a suit. Lightweight.

8. White House Black Market Faux Fur Vest

A fun ‘70s flashback that will not date. It’s very dramatic so consider yourself warned. It comes in petites, and is adequately tailored. Might need to size down. Good on all complexions. 

9. Franco Sarto Caleigh Pump

A comfortable and VERSATILE classic ankle strap pump with a low block heel. Wear it year round with or without hosiery. An easy party or office shoe. Lots of colours, of which some options are more comfortable than others. Will not work for wide feet. Read the rave reviews.

10. Zara Floral Pants 

Why not wear bold tropical florals in Autumn and Winter. These fit a lot better than I thought they would, and the fabric is substantial. The rise is in a good place and the side entry pockets do not gape. Good on a straighter and slightly curvier figure because the stretch and tailoring is in the right place. Very comfortable.

11. Rosie Neira Aubade Pullover

I’ve been looking for a super soft, cuddly and fluffy pullover that does not shed, irritate my nose, and is not made of mohair or angora wool. It had to be mostly synthetic to fulfill my criteria. This pullover fits the bill, and I bought it in cream. It’s stunning, and I’m thrilled to have found what I’ve wanted after years of looking. The neck fits more closely in person and the sleeves are shorter. It’s dressy or casual, versatile, polished and awfully pretty. Perfect with my pearls. It works as well over skirts as it does with trousers and jeans thanks to the position of the welt. The “Rosie” brand was my sign to bring it home.

12. Nordstrom Cashmere Ruffle Wrap

A good price for a gorgeous cashmere wrap. The ruffled hem is VERY subtle. It’s luscious, versatile, and very cosy. Comes in lots of colours, and is a good size for most body types. I bought the burgundy to work with my new burgundy capsule, and to have as a second wrap option on long flights since I travel internationally quite frequently. I also use it like a cardigan at home. Fab to wrap over your shoulders when working on the computer. Looks chic too.

13. Banana Republic Machine Washable Merino Crews

These are GREAT, and many clients have snapped them up to wear as layering pieces or on their own. They can be dressed up or down, and are excellent over trousers and jeans. Perfect under a blazer and the like. Professional and polished. An excellent wardrobe essential and MACHINE WASHABLE. Fab as a backdrop to statement jewellery and scarves. The ribbed version with the scalloped neckline fits more closely to the body, so you might want to size up if you prefer a fluid fit. The double-cuffed version fits more fluidly, and I brought home the “blood orange”.

14. PJ Salvage Polar Fleece Pajamas

You might need to amp up the look of your casual sleepwear if you’re visiting friends and family over the holidays. These are yummy, super cosy, warm, great quality, easy to launder, and fun as loungewear or sleepwear. The patterns are playful, and not too juvenile. Fleece PJs covered with Yorkies, teacups, or cake would have been my first choice, but since I love macarons, I went with those. The fit is not floppy and oversized, and it’s the first time I have not been sized out of the XS in this brand. They run TTS and look quite streamlined. Also available in Plus. Greg gave his thumbs up, and I’ll use these as loungewear.

Fab Finds: Skirts, Top & Cashmere Pullover

2017 is one of the better Fall and Winter retail seasons in recent memory because of improved fits, and a larger assortment of colours and silhouettes. Here are some of the items that have worked well on my clients recently. 

1. Isla Maude A-Line Skirt 

This is NOT a pencil skirt as reflected in the retailer’s description. It’s gently A-line and remarkably streamlining on both a curvier or straighter lower half. Excellent fit for pear-shaped gals, body types with “saddle bags”, fuller bottoms and thighs, wider hips, and hourglasses. Also good on rectangles with long rises and torsos. Not as good on inverted rectangles, narrow hips and thighs, or apple-shaped body types. Extremely comfortable casual knitted fabric and interesting patterns. Dress the look up or down. Nice knee-covering length too. I liked the style best with a cropped sweater that showcases the waist, but a shorter top with a welt can work as well. 

2. Boden Washable Silk Blouse

A well-made modern classic with French seams. It’s fab layered under a blazer, or semi-tucked into a pencil skirt, jeans or trousers. The colours are rich and refined. Machine washable. Runs a size big and goes up to a US18. Runs long, so not good on petites. I was sized out of the smallest size because it runs big, but if it had fit better, the turquoise would have been mine. 

3. Maeve Floral Velvet Skirt

Pouffy knife-pleated skirts are generally hard to style and feel fab in because they pack volume onto the midsection. These knife-pleated skirts do the opposite because they lie flat on the tummy and hips. Streamlined, and works on a range of body types. Super comfy and easy to style with a welted pullover. Good for casual holiday parties. 

4. Maeve Floral Jacquard Pencil Skirt

An extremely comfy pencil skirt that works for a range of body types. Bless that work-appropriate length. Knitted, but quite crisp. Dress it up or down. I like it best styled with a semi-tucked fluid pullover, but wearing it out over the skirt is lovely too. 

5. Maeve Nico Pencil Skirt

Super cute, comfortable, a tad romantic, fab length, and excellent with a denim jacket. Great swoosh-action in motion. There is a petite length for shorter gals. Fun with dressy flats and good year round. Read the rave reviews. 

6. Boden Cashmere Pullovers 

There is a LOT of bad cashmere at retail, and unfortunately the price of the item does not guarantee good quality. Over the years, I’ve had good luck with Boden’s simple cashmere pullovers  – (and J.Crew’s cashmere tee, for that matter) – that I consistently buy in a crew neck. They’re great to wear on their own with a variety of bottoms, some jewellery, scarf and coat. Soft, robust, no pilling, and easy to pull on. Beautifully finished on the neck and hemlines. The colours are a little less acidic in person. The V-necks are fab for a larger bust or shorter neck.

Kaiser Permanente Study Finds a More Effective Way to Test for HPV

A study of more than 850 women demonstrated it is effective to conduct a human papillomavirus test in the same preservative fluid as a Pap test. This has the potential to increase efficiency and decrease waste. The findings were published online Oct. 13, 2017 in the Journal of Clinical Pathology.

Devansu Tewari, MD

As a result of the findings, organizations such as Kaiser Permanente can consider transitioning to single collection of a Pap test and HPV test, rather than sending two different samples to the lab, said lead author, Devansu Tewari, MD, MBA, a gynecologic oncologist at Kaiser Permanente in Orange County, California.

HPV infections are the most common sexually transmitted infections in the United States and are the main cause of cervical cancer in women. Both the Pap and HPV test are used to screen for cervical cancer. This research is a step toward making testing for HPV infections more simple and straightforward.

“The opportunity to move toward primary HPV screening would not have existed with the method we currently use,” Dr. Tewari said. “As future studies build upon this one, that potential of primary HPV screening is within reach. It is one of many ways we are working to enhance cervical cancer screening.”

 ‘Always innovating’

This research fills an unmet need for the medical community, said Michael Kanter, MD, executive vice president and chief quality officer for The Permanente Federation, the national umbrella organization for the more than 21,000 physicians who provide care to Kaiser Permanente’s more than 11.8 million members.

“This research shows we are always innovating and finding ways to improve care delivery for our members, which highlights our commitment to shaping the future of health care,” Dr. Kanter said.

Last year, research at Kaiser Permanente in Southern California led to FDA approval of the first HPV test that can be used with cervical cells obtained for a Pap test and collected in a specific preservative fluid. The study published online was the basis of that FDA approval.

Before FDA approval in 2016, a different HPV test had to be collected into an FDA-approved medium, leading to the need for two collection samples: one for HPV and one for Pap. Like a Pap test, an HPV test is done on a sample of cells collected from the cervix.

Identifying women at highest risk

In addition to allowing for a single collection, other findings in this study showed that the test gives clinicians the opportunity to identify whether the HPV virus type is one of the most carcinogenic. The HPV genotypes 16 and 18 cause approximately 70 percent of cervical cancers worldwide.

“This test not only allows health care providers to identify more women at highest risk for developing cervical cancer and to intervene earlier, but knowing the specific HPV type empowers providers to be more effective and accurate in their education and counseling of patients. This could lead to greater patient understanding as well as improved compliance with surveillance and treatment,” said Christina Hong, MD, a study co-author and assistant chief of service of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department at Kaiser Permanente Orange County.

The study also found that there was a reliable performance of the test in a highly HPV-vaccinated population.

“The next step will include pilot studies to further expand on the recent study, while continuing to enhance our high-quality cervical cancer screening program,” Dr. Tewari said.

“This is an example of how the power of our integrated delivery model of care can meet national needs in health care while optimizing the health of our own patients,” Dr. Tewari said. “Kaiser Permanente’s diverse member base and electronic health records were key to this work, which has the power to transform practices and health care organizations approach to screening.”

Co-authors in the study were: Susan Novak-Weekley, PhD, Southern California Permanente Medical Group Regional Reference Laboratories, North Hollywood; and Shagufta Aslam, PhD, and Catherine M. Behrens, MD, PhD, of Roche Molecular Systems, Pleasanton, California.

10 Unexpectedly Fab Finds for Fall

It’s peak season and I’ve been shopping up a storm with clients. These are some of the items that were unexpectedly fabulous. Some items are simple and basic like a wardrobe essential, while others make more of a statement. In most cases there are colour options, so remember to browse them all.  

1. Gap Crossbody Bag 

This a WOW bag for $ 32. It’s faux leather, neat, tidy, reasonably well made, and polished. The guitar strap is long so tall gals have plenty of length. Works as well for petites. Very comfy. Fun striped lining. Weatherproof and robust. Practical size. Not too small and not too bulky. There’s a pocket at the back of the bag where you can store your phone for easy access. ALL the colours are nice. 

2. Gibson Cozy Fleece Tunic 

Cowls can be overwhelming, but this one lies quite flat and works on most neck lengths. Ridiculously cosy, and not too oversized. Can be layered under a regular coat quite easily thanks to sleek sleeves. Wear it at home or in very casual settings. Works for petites, regulars and talls. Runs a size big, but they’ve included an XXS. Read the rave reviews.  

3. Caslon Stripe Panel Sweater

Another very cosy item that works well to camouflage the midsection but again, is not too oversized, and can easily be layered under jackets and outerwear. The flare works well for wider hips and thighs. Interesting stripe placement. All the colours are nice. Long enough for tall gals. Good over tight bottoms.

4. Banana Republic Machine Washable Merino Wool Turtleneck

If you’re a sleek turtleneck gal with a long neck who runs cold, you MUST try this darling. It’s gently fluid in your size, but size up if you prefer a roomier fit. Perfect layered under a blazer. Simple Chic. And made of a machine washable wool. I bought the ink blue because I’m covered with black turtlenecks, and unfortunately none of the other colours appealed to me.

5. Zara Faux Shearling Coat 

Real shearling is pricey, and fab faux versions are hard to find, especially in shades of blue. This one from Zara is stunning and well made. Does not crease. Drapes beautifully. The blue is a little darker in person, and the patch pockets are well positioned. Streamlined but roomy. It works particularly well on tall gals, but good on regular height gals too. Not good on petites or short arms. Can be dressed up or down.

6. La Canadienne Solana Bootie

A smart casual flat bootie with a high shaft that looks chic and is very comfortable is a tall order. The Solana is pricey but you’re getting a versatile, quality piece that is weatherproof. Very flattering on the feet and ankles. The grey-brown gets my top vote. 

7. Caslon Peplum Tee

Peplum tees or tees with hem flounces can look juvenile, or the flounces are in the wrong place. These tees look casually sophisticated and playful, and fit well. The fabric drapes quite nicely and isn’t too thin. Fab layered under a jacket or cardigan. Works as well for tall gals as it does for petites. The stripes get my top votes.

8.  Gap Modern Long Sleeve Crew Tee

It’s hard to find a simple long-sleeved tee that is thick, tailored and fairly polished. Most tees are thin, oversized, have sleeves that are hard to layer over, too wide necklines, and make you feel un-pulled together. These tees are made of substantial fabric, come in talls and petites, have a neat and tidy neckline, and are fairly fitted. They are great layered under just about anything.

9. Everlane Large Street Nylon Zip Backpack

I laughed when one of my clients was “afraid to tell me” that she sports a practical backpack as her work bag from now on because she commutes by bus and foot and needs an extra healthy option for her body. I asked her to show me the backpack — and surprised her by loving it for her style. The Everlane backpack works well for her avant-garde, polished, Tomboy and urban style. It’s extremely sleek and neat, and not overly casual like I thought it might be. Super cute.

10. White House Black Market Messenger Bags 

Messenger bags can be very uncomfortable, and guitar straps tend to adorn smaller bags. The ones from WHBM are tailored, comfy, quite well made, and come with a guitar strap. The olive is unique, and all the colours are fab. You can buy guitar straps separately too.

Youngest in Your Family? You’re More Likely to Be Self-Employed, Study Finds

These days, it seems like youngest children are the ones who have all the fun. Recent studies have found that youngest children are more likely to have a whole suite of personality traits — from being funnier and more relaxed to being more social and creative.

(Image: iStock/mapodile)

 

Now, you can add a couple more qualities to that list: being more entrepreneurial and with a bigger appetite for taking risks. According to a fascinating new study by Swedish and American academics and published by the National Bureau of Economic Research, children who are born later than their siblings are more likely to be self-employed. The study used representative population data from Sweden to study how men’s birth order affected their occupations later in life. Data about personality traits was obtained from psychological assessments taken when the men enlisted in the Swedish military.

These findings align nicely with a previous study by the University of Birmingham that was released in 2016. Researchers for that study found that youngest children are 50% more likely to go into business than their older siblings if their parents were not already entrepreneurs. What’s more, the figure rises to 65% for those youngest children of entrepreneurial parents. The Birmingham and Sweden studies are both evidence in support of psychologist Frank J. Sulloway’s “born to rebel” thesis, arguing that younger children are more likely to push against the family status quo.

The Good News for Older Siblings 

However, the news isn’t all bad for the older children of the litter. The study also found that oldest children are more likely to be emotionally stable, persistent and capable of taking responsibility and initiative. This might explain why earlier-born children were more likely to be managers and to have other occupations that require leadership abilities.

Interestingly, the effects of birth order seem to be related to the gender of the earlier children as well. With more brothers in the mix, these stereotypical personality traits show up more frequently and strongly as compared to having more sisters.

Of course, the findings of the study need to be presented with a few caveats. For one, the authors correctly note that they are unable to tell whether youngest children are more likely to be self-employed because of their personal preferences, or simply due to greater difficulties in obtaining a salaried position due to different economic circumstances. In addition, the causes of these apparent differences still need further investigation.

The authors of the study propose both biological and environmental reasons for why these qualities are present. For example, previous studies have revealed that a mother’s womb becomes more effective at developing and nurturing the fetus as she has more children.

However, the potential environmental influence of parents, siblings and other family members is also a plausible explanation. After all, first-born children tend to get more attention and resources from their parents, who may also initially use stricter parenting practices that are relaxed as they raise additional children. In the midst of these sibling rivalries and conflicts, the authors suggest, later-born children may need to be more sociable and unconventional in order to obtain the parental resources that they desire.

Risk vs. Reward

The study authors say that youngest-born children may be less risk-averse than their older siblings, which makes them more likely to go it on their own as a self-employed entrepreneur. After all, risk is seemingly inherent to making the leap to starting a small business. Many small business owners put their own personal finances on the line by taking on debt on personal credit cards or by guaranteeing a business loan with their own personal credit. (You can avoid some of the personal credit consequences if you establish business credit and keep those personal and business finances separate.)

And although the youngest-born children may be less risk-averse than their siblings, that doesn’t mean that the lenders they work with to start their small businesses will be too. They want a positive payment history and other signs you’re likely to repay before they’ll approve you for financing.

Study finds the majority of women want more sex, and obviously

Who knew? Oh, yeah. We did.

Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

Women might get the rough deal when it comes to orgasm inequality, but we’re not quitters and we’ll do what we can to get that sex afterglow. Whether it’s BDSM for beginners, gunning for the explosive cervical orgasm, or convincing your other half to attempt astral sex, there’s no way we’re living up to the outdated gender stereotypes that paint us as bedroom-shy wallflowers – something that has been backed up by a new study.

Voucher Codes Pro surveryed 2,383 Britons aged 18 and over to ask them about their sex lives. All those involved were in long-term committed relationships and spilled the beans on everything from how regularly they had sex, to what they really wanted between the sheets.

It found that 60% of women said that they wanted more sex compared to 41% of men, suggesting (finally) that, you know, women have sex drives too. A radical idea indeed.

It also revealed that once the couples had moved on from the honeymoon phase, their most frequent arguments revolved around finances (25%), sex (21%) and not spending enough quality time together (20%). A fifth of the participants also confessed that differing bedroom preferences led to most of their sex-based arguments.

And what were the couples biggest concerns when it came to their sex lives? Around 37% admitted that they ‘didn’t have enough sex’, with 34% believing that their bedroom antics weren’t spontaneous enough. A further 32% blamed their other half for being a lazy lover. Charming.

However, if there is an imbalance in a couple’s libido it seems that 40% are happy to switch on some porn to get their kicks. Fair enough.

Music therapy doesn’t help autism, study finds

by

Claudia Boyd-Barrett

posted in Parenting

Enrolling kids with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in music therapy won’t improve their social skills, according to the results of a large clinical trial.

The disappointing finding, published this month in the Journal of the American Medical Association, is based on a study involving more than 350 children ages 4 through 7 in the U.S., Australia, the U.K., Israel, Brazil, Italy, Korea, Norway and Austria. During the trial, the children all received standard care for autism available in their region. In addition, half of the children received one-on-one music therapy.

After 5 months of therapy, the children in the music therapy group scored similarly on social skills tests to children who didn’t receive music therapy, the researchers found.

Music therapy involves a trained professional helping children create music spontaneously by singing or playing an instrument. The U.S. has about 7,000 music therapists, according to the study.

Teacher-plays-instruments-with-girl

So should you disregard music therapy as an option if you have an autistic child?

Not necessarily. To begin with, this study wasn’t perfect. Calculating the effectiveness of a therapy is more difficult than figuring out how well a drug works because therapy is less precise and may vary depending on the therapist and recipient. Other research has found music therapy benefits kids with autism, although these studies are often smaller and of lesser quality.

Even if music therapy doesn’t improve autistic children’s social skills, it may enrich their lives in other ways such as by providing them joy and allowing them to pursue a musical interest, senior author Christian Gold told Reuters. At the same time, the study findings offer reassurance that music therapy doesn’t need to be part of your child’s treatment plan.

Have you tried or heard about music therapy for autism spectrum disorders? What do you think of this type of therapy?

Overweight children are being excluded from friendships, study finds

Overweight children have more unreciprocated friendships and frenemies than their thinner counterparts, a new study has found. In a survey of 504 preteens in the Netherlands, researchers found that overweight children are excluded from friendships, call classmates friends when the feeling is not mutual and are disliked by peers. And overweight children dislike more classmates than their thinner peers. These heightened negative relationships take a mental, social and physical toll.

Vaccine helps fight ear infections, study finds

by

Claudia Boyd-Barrett

posted in Parenting

Kids are getting fewer ear infections today than they were about 3 decades ago, largely thanks to the pneumococcal vaccine which protects against a common bacteria, a study suggests.

The study findings, and an accompanying editorial, emphasize the importance of adhering to the recommended immunization schedule for your child, which includes the pneumococcal vaccine.

Research in the 1980’s found that about 80 percent of children got at least one ear infection by age 3. Today, according to the most recent study published in the journal Pediatrics, the number has dropped to just 60 percent of children.

Kids these days are also less likely to suffer multiple ear infections by age 3 than in the past, the study found.

The researchers tracked more than 600 kids who attended a medical clinic in Rochester, New York, between 2006 and 2016. As part of the study and treatment, the researchers performed a procedure that drains fluid from the ears of children with an infection. That allowed them to analyze the type of bacteria causing the infection.

Baby-has-ear-checked

During the study, the researchers detected a drop in the number of ear infections caused by bacteria called streptococcus pneumonia. They attributed the decrease largely to the introduction of the pneumococcal vaccine in 2000, and an updated version introduced in 2010, which protects against this type of bacteria. Stricter criteria for diagnosing ear infections may also have contributed to the overall decline in ear infections, the authors said.

Here’s the bad news: two other types of ear infection-causing bacteria – haemophilus influenzae and moraxella catarrhalis – appeared to be gaining strength. Currently, there are no vaccines to protect children against these bacteria, and they’re also becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotics. New vaccines and treatments for ear infections may be needed in the future, the lead study author told HealthDay.

Ear infections are very common in babies and young children, accounting for about 10 million visits to the doctor each year. They can be caused by bacteria or a virus, and most of the time your child won’t need antibiotics. Call your doctor if you suspect your child has an ear infection.

Those Good Vibes You Feel After Sex Can Last For 48 Hours, Study Finds

Research has proven that people are generally in a better mood after having sex ― you can thank a flood of endorphins and other feel-good hormones for that. But how long do those post-sex feelings last?

A new study suggests that the positive effects of getting laid last up to two days ― and those good vibes also help couples bond over time.

Lead researcher Andrea Meltzer and her team at Florida State University examined data from two independent longitudinal studies, one with 96 newlywed couples and another with 118 newlywed couples. All the couples had completed at least three consecutive days of a 14-day sex diary.

Each night before falling asleep, the partners were asked to report whether they had sex that day. They were also asked to jot down how satisfied they were with three things: their sex life, their partner and their relationship as a whole.

On average, the participants had sex four days out of the 14. Unsurprisingly, sex on any given day was linked with feelings of sexual and relationship satisfaction ― but what’s interesting is that the afterglow effect lasted up to 48 hours later. And those who sustained the afterglow for that amount of time also were happy with their relationships months down the road. 

“People with a stronger sexual afterglow ― that is, people who report a higher level of sexual satisfaction 48 hours after sex ― report higher levels of relationship satisfaction several months later.”
Andrea Meltzer

“People with a stronger sexual afterglow ― that is, people who report a higher level of sexual satisfaction 48 hours after sex ― report higher levels of relationship satisfaction several months later,” Meltzer said of the study, which was published this month in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science.  

In an interview with The Huffington Post, Meltzer said what most surprised her most about the findings was how well the mental benefits of sex synced up with human biology.

“Forty-eight hours is roughly the same amount of time that (a) conception is maximized, (b) it takes sperm concentrations to be restored to peak levels, and (c) sperm remain maximally viable in the female reproductive tract,” she said. “It’s really interesting that lingering cognitive implications of sex ― sexual afterglow, for instance ― last for the same amount of time as the biological implications of sex.”

Meltzer said that newlyweds were singled out for the study because they engage in sex more frequently than long-term couples ― a requisite for the research.

“Our theory was based on reproduction,” Meltzer told HuffPost. “Given that newlyweds are often young and of reproductive age, they were an ideal sample in which to test our predictions.” 

In sum? Sex plays a major role in satisfaction and pair bonding, even if you’re not having sex every day of the week.

Military Wife Finds A Creative Way To Include Husband In Christmas Card

Husband and father of four Brandon Sistrunk won’t be home for the holidays this year, but that didn’t stop his wife Ashley from making sure they posed for their family Christmas card together.

Brandon is a staff sergeant in the Air Force currently deployed overseas in Iraq. Ashley and their four kids live thousands of miles away in Colorado Springs, Colorado, so she needed to get creative to make the group shot a reality.

Ashley’s mother took a photo of her and the kids, and a military friend of Brandon’s took a picture of him. Ashley then stitched the two images together in Photoshop and shared it with friends on social media. It was picked up by local news station KKTV 11 on Saturday and has since gone viral.

“Having a piece of your heart across the world, fighting for your country. It’s just a whole other level of emotions,” she said

Thankful for a mom that can cook!

A photo posted by Ashley Sistrunk (@ashley_sistrunk) on

Ashley also told KKTV that life as a military wife has been tough on her and the kids. Brandon was deployed during three of the children’s births and was unable to make it home.

“We tell the kids, ‘Yes, other kids have their daddy home right now,’” she said. “But their daddy is out being a superhero, keeping our country safe and that’s important ― that’s an important job.”

On Instagram, Ashley said that the holidays are a particularly difficult time for the family. 

“I hate wanting to wish away a holiday,” she wrote. “Christmas is one of my favorite holidays, but with Brandon gone and the kids begging to have him home on Christmas, it just won’t be the same. I know we are supposed to ‘live for today!’, but I wish I could wake up tomorrow and have it be late January!”

Fortunately, Brandon is set to return home to his family early next year. 

“[The kids] adore him,” Ashley told FOX21. “He will do anything for them. So I miss him actually being able to come home at the end of the day and they yell ‘Daddy!’”

When we think of Beyonce, we normally think of her wearing a gorgeous (and extremely expensive) designer dress. And for most red carpet appearances, that proves to be the case. But this week, we spotted Ms. Knowles-Carter out and about in jeans that look awfully similar to a pair we saw for $ 39 at H&M. Looks like Bey may also be the queen of bargain shopping.

Check out all the other celebs we spotted in affordable items this week, and let us know which ones you’re coveting.

Daily ReHash’s iPhone 6 Test Finds Major Weakness

All eyes have been on how much pressure Apple’s products can handle in the wake of “Bendgate,” which erupted with reports that the new iPhone 6 Plus can be bent by normal usage forces.

Apple even opened up its testing facilities to CNBC to assure that it continues to demand product excellence in the Tim Cook era.

But while everyone is focused on whether their new, really expensive, iPhone flexes, there is another potential product weakness that Daily ReHash’s testing found.

The iPhone 6 passed most of Daily ReHash’s inane tests — including a paternity test, a naturalization test, personality test — it fell short on one that any current or potential owner is going to want to know about.

Watch the video above, and pity the poor tester.

Emerson College’s Fusion of Bright Colorful Prints and Unique Vintage Finds

Emerson College is known for its creative students and innovative alumni. From motivated journalists to aspiring film directors and everything in between, Emerson stands out from the rest by encouraging us to think outside of the box and distinguish ourselves by pushing the boundaries. As Emerson’s motto states, “Bringing innovation to communication and the arts,” students are always on the hunt for the next big thing. You can feel an air of competition as soon as you walk into a class, which makes anyone even more excited to be the best one can be.

Earlier this year, the same happened to me. I transferred to Emerson on my sophomore year. While I was nervous and anxious to adapt to a new school, I knew I had made the right decision. The first few months I did not have many friends in class. However, I liked them all. You see, there is a thing about first impressions that really amazes me. Even though my classmates and I did not talk a lot during or after class, their style and confidence taught me more about themselves than anything that we could have talk before.

What seduced me about studying at Emerson was the ability of the students to be unique and follow their own path without breaking any rules. In fact, there are no rules to break. You make your own. I felt that being creative and innovative was not enough to stand out. You want to exude the passion and imagination to the outside so people notice that you have a special talent. Moreover, because I love fashion and I have a blog called Sanctuary of Freedom, students are Emerson College are a daily outfit inspiration for me. One of my favorite things about Emerson is the clash of colors and prints that happen on the halls. From polka-dots to psychedelic prints and vintage rock band logos, you can spot every print mash-up and color-block trend on campus.

I think Emerson’s motto applies both to the academics and the style of the students. Having personal style and a unique look makes you communicate an innovative message of constant change. Jorge Drexler, famous Uruguayan musician sings, “Nada se pierde, todo se transforma,” which means, “Nothing is lost, everything is transformed.” As for style, you do not lose it. It evolves with you. That is what I feel about the fashion consciousness of an Emerson student.

This Fashionista embodies the risk-taking environment one feels at Emerson. You can spot the mix of prints like stripes, plaid and a funky circular print from the pants. Even though Emerson students are competitive in the academic field, when it comes to fashion they are very easy-going. Converse over anything, rolled-up pants and a loose knotted T-shirt. It is effortlessly chic. She chose a color pattern with neutrals like black and white and a strong dark green. When I asked her what was her favorite piece, she told me it was the vest because it was vintage and she found it in a market in Paris. I smiled and agreed with her. I think many of Emerson’s students are vintage junkies, and I love it. Walking on the streets near Emerson, one can spot Fashionistas with oversized denim jackets, or a vest in this case and soft washed-out vintage T-shirts paired with an on-trend item. That is what an Emerson student is all about: innovation, transformation and evolution. For that reason, I’m proud to say that Emerson College is a fashion-forward society.

She has been working with CollegeFashionista for three semesters and counting. As a result of the success of her fashion blog Sanctuary of Freedom, Andrea is part of Teen Vogue’s fashion click blogger and has had the chance to go to New York Fashion Week and Miami Fashion Week. Also, she contributes as a writer in the fashion section of Emerson’s fashion and lifestyle magazine, Em Mag. She hopes to move to New York once she graduates to pursue her dream of being an editor-in-chief at one of the biggest fashion magazines in the world.

‘Sherlock’ Review: ‘The Empty Hearse’ Finds An Emotional Reunion For Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman In Long-Awaited Return

The most highly-awaited show of the year returned, and within one sharp, mind-boggling minute in the company of Sherlock and Co, it was all explained away… apparently.

We had a far-fetched (but possible!) combination of bungee rope, a Sherlock mask over a Moriarty body, a big grateful kiss for enamoured lab assistant Molly… oh, and Derren Brown???? Hang on a minute!

Ah, that’ll be one big nod to the conspiracy theorists everywhere, then. No one listens to their fans like writers Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, and plays with them a little in return. According to Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock on the roof, there are 13 possible outcomes in total. So looks like we might have to wait for the truth for a bit longer after all…

sherlock

Sherlock’s return was greeted with a welcome less warm than he would have perhaps liked

Cut to… Gatiss as weary Mycroft having to tap some numbers into his international speed-dial, brush up his Serbian, engage in some tiresome ‘field work’ to locate his errant little brother, and return him to his Baker Street fold.

And that, expectant viewers, was very much that. Two years’ worth of all our wondering, tucked into a drawer for the time being. Onward…

sherlock

Mary (Amanda Abbington) had (almost) replaced Sherlock in Doctor Watson’s affections, but proved crucial to the restoration of their bromance

Into the up-to-date world of Dr Watson (Martin Freeman), complete with fiancee Mary (Freeman’s real-life partner Amanda Abbington) and moustache, moving on with his life, much to the surprise of Mrs Hudson (Una Stubbs) – “So soon after Sherlock?” she asked guilelessly.

But this was a light appetiser for the serious business of his reunion with the much-missed Holmes who, despite his big brain, managed to misjudge such concepts as how grief can turn to resentment when it turns out to be misplaced for two sad, lonely years. Sherlock got a much warmer reception even from DI Lestrade (Rupert Graves), and that was even after Holmes got his name wrong.

sherlock

Benedict Cumberbatch was on fine form as the loner detective

Fortunately for fans, it wasn’t too long before Holmes and Watson were reconciled to combat an underground terrorism network operating on the underground network. From then on, it was all torches in dark tunnels, upturned collars and lots and lots of nifty editing as Holmes homed in on quite a bit of a bomb, and Watson continued to prove his peerless Everyman acting stripes, equal parts confusion, good intention, and deep indignation when said bomb turned out to have an off-switch. That Sherlock fella, eh? Such a wag.

Because of all of Watson’s understandable, brooding resentment for much of the 90 minutes, a lot of the real pleasure in this episode in fact came from the jollier exchanges between the Holmes brothers, with both siblings proving that absence makes the heart grow more competitive… who can deduce more accurately? Who can say more more words in one minute? Who can enunciate more c-c-r-r-i-sply? Wonderful stuff from both Cumberbatch and Gatiss.

A challenge to keep up with, a joy to watch – there’s a reason this kind of telly takes two years to make. But oh, how we’ve missed it, and oh, how it was worth the wait.

How DID he do it? Let us know your thoughts below, and what you thought of Sherlock’s big return…
