Women under 40 having fewer babies? Make way for older moms

by

Maggie Downs

posted in Life

Let’s hear it for the olds!

According to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, women in the United States are having babies at record low rates. In 2017, births were at a 30-year low, down two percent from the previous year.

With one exception: American woman over age 40 are having more babies than ever before.

A happy woman of color with gorgeous curly hair looks over her shoulder

The birth rate for women age 40 to 44 in 2017 was up two percent from the previous year.

“The rate for this age group has generally risen since 1982,” says the CDC report.

Meanwhile, the birth rate for women over age 45 remained the same, although that number rose by three percent from 2016 to 2017.

“This suggests, as a Pew Survey found earlier this year, that more women are delaying childbirth into their late 30s and early 40s, but ultimately choosing to have children in the end — just perhaps not as many,” says an article, “The Rise of Older Mothers,” in The Atlantic.

The article proposes that more woman are likely to get degrees, establish their careers, and then have a baby rather than give birth during their earlier work years — potentially because women who have children between the ages of 25 and 35 suffer a hit to wages that they rarely recover from.

However, “it’s too soon to say whether this delayed childbearing will result in fewer babies overall,” according to the article.

A woman walks alone on a beach during a violet and yellow sunset

I am an older mom. I was already of advanced maternal age when I gave birth to my son, and the doctors then acted like I was one of the Golden Girls. Now, almost four years later, I’m in my early 40s, I’d love to get pregnant again, and I don’t even know what they’d call me now — Advanced Crone? Geriatric Mama?

But for all the times I mutter about my aching back or wish I had the energy of a twentysomething, there are definite benefits to being an old mom. I think I’m in a better emotional space than I was when I was younger. I am more tolerant and relaxed. And while I’m not well off, I’m about as financially stable as I’ll ever be. Plus, kids born to older parents might have higher IQs and longer life spans, according to NBC News. (And who am I to argue with NBC?)

I look forward to more older moms joining me. If you want to find me, I’ll be the one at the playground wheezing as I chase after my son, cursing under my breath as I contort my ancient bones down the spiral slide, then laughing all the way down.

Are you delaying having children until you are older?

Stylish Tops for Under Suits

stylish tops for under suitsWe try to keep our major shopping guides updated regularly, but sometimes they need a major overhaul — that’s been the case for our Guide to the Best Tops for Under Women’s Suits for a while now.stylish tops for under women's suits - stock photo of a young woman wearing a bow blouse under a suit I’m proud to say we’ve finally done it — you can check it out here. In the meantime, ladies, let’s talk: what are your favorite, most stylish tops for under suits?

For my $ .02: I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: I’ve always been a fan of wearing slightly fancy t-shirts under suits whenever possible, provided they’re easy to launder — I particularly like that a sleeved bottom layer means that my suit blazer can go longer without being laundered. I’d say my next favorite option is the popover blouse, like many readers have noted — much less problems with gaping! On the flip side, a cowl top is one of my least favorite things to wear under suits — they never seem to lay properly with the lapels. Similarly, wrap tops can sometimes fight the line of the lapels — and for me anything that’s too high-necked (like a crew neck or turtleneck) is usually not flattering, and requires extra thought to “lower the neckline” with a pearl necklace or something. The secretary blouse, as pictured here, has never been one of my favorites — too hard to get the tie just right — but it can be a great look (and it’s one of Selina Meyer’s favorite looks!).  Ladies, let’s hear from you — what are your favorite stylish tops for under suits? Is there anything you definitely wouldn’t wear under suits? Do you prefer to layer different tops under jardigans or cardigans, or can your closet do double duty?

Rumor claims Apple to release a $200 HomePod under the Beats umbrella

Apple HomePod Price

It’s no secret that Apple’s HomePod isn’t exactly a runaway hit. Despite strong reviews praising the device’s incredible sound quality, consumers in recent months have gravitated more towards rival offerings from the likes of Amazon and Google. In fact, a recent report from Strategy Analytics reveals that Apple’s smart speaker during the recent March quarter only accounted for a paltry 6% of the global smart speaker market. In stark contrast, Amazon’s Echo devices garnered an impressive 81.8% share.

The lack of HomePod sales momentum can likely be attributed to two factors. One, Siri on the HomePod is laughably deficient compared to intelligent assistants from Amazon and Google. Moreover, Siri functionality on the HomePod is limited even compared to Siri on the iPhone. Siri squabbles aside, there’s no getting around the fact that the HomePod is simply far more expensive than rival devices. As a prime example, Apple’s HomePod retails for $ 349 while Google Home can be purchased for as little as $ 130.

‘The Fifth Element’ director Luc Besson under investigation for rape

TwitterFacebook

Luc Besson, director of The Fifth Element and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, is under investigation by French authorities for alleged rape.

The accusation comes from a formal complaint lodged by an unnamed 27-year-old French actress. A report from French media outlet Europe 1 (h/t The Hollywood Reporter) notes that the two have known each other for a number of years. 

The complaint, which was brought forward on Friday morning, states that Besson added something to the accuser’s tea during a meeting at Le Bristol, a Paris hotel. It goes on to state that she fell unconscious after drinking the beverage, and she awoke to the director “touching and penetrating her” (THR‘s words). Read more…

Score Meghan Markle’s Favorite White Sneakers for Under $100  

It’s nearly impossible to overstate our love of white sneakers. Versatile and comfy, they’re the footwear phenomenon we hope will never go away. One person we’re pretty sure shares our love of fashion’s current MVP trend? None other than future royal Meghan Markle. Prince Harry’s bride-to-be has been spotted in Reebok’s Classic Leather white sneaker (which retail for $ 75; nordstrom.com, amazon.com, asos.com, and urbanoutfitters.com) on several occasions, often wearing them to and from yoga class.

It’s easy to see why Meghan is a devoted fan of the style. With spring in full swing, you’d be hard pressed to find an outfit these kicks couldn’t pair with. From distressed jeans to floral dresses, they go with everything — and make a cool (and comfortable) alternative to traditional flats. Plus, they’re an ultra wearable way to get in on the chunky “dad sneaker” trend, without actually looking like your dad.

And best of all? They can easily be dressed up or down – they look as polished with Markle’s skinny jeans as they do with her high-end bag, which is why they’re a favorite for everyone from celebrities to regular girls who want to look cute on a Saturday without being held back by their shoes.

RELATED PHOTOS: Meghan Markle’s Perfectly Polished Outfit Formula Is the Only Look You’ll Ever Need!

Fashion’s obsession with this shoe has yet to show any signs of slowing down. And with Meghan cosigning on this style, suffice it to say: the white sneaker is bound to stick around for a while. Long may it reign.

Under stress, newborn babies show greater brain response to pain

When newborn babies are under stress, their brains show a heightened response to pain, a new study has found. However, you’d never know it from the way those infants act. The findings show that stress leads to an apparent disconnect between babies’ brain activity and their behavior. Stressed babies may not seem to respond to pain, even as their brain is still processing it.

Jimmy Kimmel Thinks He Knows How to Get Under Trump’s Skin After That Oscars Jab

Jimmy Kimmel struck back at President Trump during his monologue on Tuesday night after Trump tweeted a dig at the Academy Awards show for its low ratings.

While Kimmel, who hosted the Oscars, responded to the president on Twitter, noting that Trump had the lowest approval rating of any president in history. He also responded to the presidential address during his monologue on Tuesday night’s episode Jimmy Kimmel Live!

“Lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY,” the president tweeted the morning after the Oscars. “Problem is, we don’t have Stars anymore — except your President (just kidding, of course)!”

“Of course he’s kidding,” Kimmel cracked. “He’s not narcissistic.” Kimmel added that he had tweeted back at him, “Thanks, lowest rated President in HISTORY,” commenting on the president’s low approval ratings. Kimmel seemingly couldn’t help but also note that his tweet received many more likes than the president’s.

“Trump always has a problem with the Academy Awards, which is surprising because I really think he would love the best picture winner, The Shape of Water. The movie, if you haven’t seen it, it’s about a monster who has sex with a woman who can’t talk about it. Basically, it’s like his life story. Right?” Kimmel said.

Kimmel also commented on a tweet sent out by Donald Trump Jr. in which he used an emoji to indicate he hadn’t watched the Oscars. “You know that’s an authentic Trump hand because it’s gold and tiny,” Kimmel joked.

But there’s no need to spend such lofty sums when there are plenty of more-reasonably priced travel systems out there. Here are 5 of our favorites that deliver 5-star performance and impressive value.

1. Evenflo Sibby

It’s new on the market, so you may not have heard of it yet, and it’s so outrageously beautiful that you may assume it’s expensive. But for under $ 200 (well under, in some cases — the purple model pictured above is on sale for $ 149 right now!), the Sibby looks and works great. It comes with the LiteMax infant car seat, highly rated by parents and narrow enough to be one of our 47 car seats that fit 3 across in most vehicles. And the Sibby stroller has a secret superpower too: a ride-along board that flips up when you don’t need it, and down when you need to carry your new baby’s older sibling — or take it off entirely if you don’t need it (yet!).

Buy it: $ 149-$ 198

2. Urbini Omni Plus

The Omni has a cool feature that makes parents love it — the main stroller seat can be easily converted into a bassinet, so it’s perfect for pushing around infants, if you’d rather leave the car seat in the car. The stroller seat can flip from rear-facing to street-facing too, to accommodate little riders who are sleepy, need attention, or want to look around. Some online reviews complain about the wheels, so if you live on rough terrain, you may want to keep looking. But for those who live close to smooth sidewalks, the Omni Plus is a great-looking bargain with cool features.

Buy it: $ 193.12

3. Graco LiteRider

For every day solid performance, look no further than the LiteRider Click Connect Travel System, which is a shocking bargain at just $ 111. It comes with the SnugRide Click Connect car seat, arguably one of the most popular on the market, and the LiteRider stroller, a stroller so great that it was a 2017 Moms’ Picks finalist for Best Lightweight Stroller. One caveats: maximum weight for the car seat tops out at 22 pounds, so if you expect or have a child on the large side, you may want to try another option. Otherwise, this is a well-working

Buy it: $ 111

4. Baby Trend Expedition Jogger

With two sets of back wheels and one wheel in front, jogging strollers tend to maneuver more easily than strollers with four sets, so if you live in a place where you have to do tight twists and turns, you may want to consider this kind of stroller — with its giant air-filled wheels, it’s great for bumpy rides, too. This travel system comes with the Flex-Loc car seat, a narrow seat that’s one of the 47 car seats that fit 3-across in most vehicles, and the Expedition’s stroller seat reclines flat, so you can safely put your baby in this stroller from birth.

Buy it: $ 167

5. Safety 1st Smooth Ride

The Smooth Ride stroller’s nice features are its agile wheels (which whip smoothly around tight corners, so consider this for city living), and its easy fold: pull one strap in the middle of your baby’s stroller seat and the stroller collapses easily and stands by itself, ideal for those who have to keep their stroller in a closet or another small space. It comes with the onBoard35 LT, which is comfy and well-padded.

Buy it: $ 144

Michelle Obama Has Advice For People Who Feel ‘Fear’ Under Trump

If you missed it, former first lady Michelle Obama sat down with Ellen DeGeneres for her first TV interview since leaving the White House and they dished about the “very scary” world under Donald Trump.

Mrs. Obama admitted that while there are many people who are concerned about the future of this nation, others don’t see fear.

“People are afraid,” she said. “But then there are people who feel good about the direction of the country. So that’s what makes this country complicated because it’s made up of so many different people from different backgrounds. We are this mosh pit of society and sometimes there’s a rub, Mrs. Obama explained.

“But the thing that we have to remember, the thing I learned in the eight years that I was in the White House, was that what we do every day in our lives, the good things that we do every day — and we know we do it — we show empathy, we care for each other. We do have a lot in common,” she said. “That’s what it means to lead with hope and not fear. And that’s all we have, is hope.”

She went on to say that no matter how hard it can be, you need to “love each other, to take care of each other, to show empathy.”

“You can’t do that only when people make you feel good or safe. We’ve got to do it all across the board. We have to be an open-hearted nation — and that’s who we are,” she said. “And that’s the truth of who we are, so you can’t lose sight of that. So let’s just keep living our lives like that every single day and forget what they’re saying in Washington. That’s not necessarily who we are. We know who we are and I know who this country is.”

To preview the “Ellen” episode, Obama took to her Snapchat to share some behind the scenes moments during the show’s taping.

During their conversation, she also told Ellen what was in that Tiffany’s gift that Melania Trump gave her on Donald Trump’s Inauguration.

“There’s all this protocol,” she explains. “This is like a state visit, so they tell you that you’re going to do this, they’re going to stand here. Never before do you get this gift, so I’m sort of like, ‘OK, what am I supposed to do with this gift?’” Obama says, narrating as a clip of the exchange playing on a large screen behind her and Ellen.

“Everyone cleared out and no one would come and take the box, and I’m thinking, ‘Do we take the picture with (it)?’ And then my husband saved the day — see he grabbed the box and took it back inside. But everybody cleared out — no staff, no one. I was like, ‘What do you do with the box?’”

Obama told DeGeneres that Mrs. Trump gave her “a lovely frame.”

Her appearance on the “Ellen Show” also happened to be for Ellen’s 60th birthday celebration.

ENTERTAINMENT UPDATE:

A Former USA Gymnastics Coach Is Now Under Investigation

(LANSING, Mich.) — Former U.S. Olympic women’s gymnastics team coach John Geddert is facing a criminal investigation after complaints were filed following the sentencing of disgraced ex-sports doctor Larry Nassar, who molested girls at Geddert’s elite gymnastics club in Michigan.

The Eaton County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday that people recently come forward with complaints against Geddert. The office declined to elaborate on the number of complaints or their nature, citing the ongoing investigation.

Geddert until recently owned and operated Twistars, a gym in Dimondale where Nassar offered treatments on Monday nights. During Nassar’s sentencing hearing, some victims complained that Geddert was physically abusive, created an ultra-competitive atmosphere, was indifferent to injuries and rarely offered gymnasts any choice to see a different doctor.

One also alleged that Geddert was aware in the late 1990s that Nassar had performed an “inappropriate procedure” on her when she was 16.

Geddert’s lawyer could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday by The Associated Press.

Geddert has insisted he had “zero knowledge” of Nassar’s crimes. In response to lawsuits, his lawyer filed court papers saying Geddert was “just one person in an extremely long line of people who were fooled by Nassar.”

Geddert previously was accused of physically assaulting a parent who also was a coach at Twistars. He also was accused of assaulting a gymnast. He did not face charges in either case.

On Monday, the worst sex-abuse case in sports history ended with a third long prison sentence for Nassar. The latest sentence of 40 to 125 years was for molesting young gymnasts at Twistars.

Geddert was suspended last month by USA Gymnastics until it completes its own investigation. Geddert, who coached the “Fierce Five” that won a team gold in 2012 in London, announced his retirement.

An astonishing 250-plus women and girls gave statements in two Michigan courtrooms over 10 days of proceedings. The focus will shift to lawsuits and multiple probes of Nassar’s actions and those of people around him when he worked for Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics, the sport’s governing body.

Merino Henleys under $30, Scottish made Cashmere Scarves for $40, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

J. Crew: Extra 50% off Final Sale Items w/ SAVENOW

Only works on final sale stuff, and boy is the selection picked over. UPDATE: J. Crew dumped a LOT of new stuff in their sale section over night. Lots of seasonal suits and blazers. So, hop to it before this stuff runs out the door. Odd thing is, they say it’s good on final sale items, but I’m not seeing the usual “FINAL SALE NO RETURNS” verbiage on the product pages? Be careful though.

 

Massdrop: Scottish Made 100% Cashmere Scarves – $ 49.99 FINAL

Massdrop Scottish Scarves

It’s Massdrop, so it’s final sale, but forty bucks for a 100% cashmere scarf that was made in Scotland? Not bad. And you’ve got choices. 21 scarves in 3 different sizes. Only drawback, other than final sale, is that they won’t ship until the end of February. So, not much time left to use em’ after that.

 

Bonobos: FINAL SALE: Extra 40% off w/ SALEONSALE

Bonobos

Further reductions and no more tiers. Meanwhile, around thirty bucks is an amazing deal on those merino wool henleys. Sure, they require a bit more care in terms of washing, but they’re light years ahead of crappy cotton henleys.

 

DSW: $ 10 off $ 49, $ 20 off $ 99, $ 60 off $ 199 w/ KEEPSAVNG

DSW

DSW’s excellent for the price chukkas are back. Some deals to be had for sure if you like DSW’s house brand lines. Aston Grey has always been a nice budget brand. You can check out a full review of those chukkas right here.

 

J. Crew Factory: Extra 50% off Clearance w/ GOTTASHOP

J. Crew Factory

The J. Crew Factory clearance section can be less than impressive sometimes. But now? It’s actually kinda solid. Who knows how much stock they have left, but their merino wool sweaters (v necks, cardigans, and crews) are quite nice. Especially for 50% off the on-sale price.

Also worth a mention:

  • H&M: Extra 25% off sale items w/ 9119
  • Brooks Brothers: They’re running a FINAL sale event? I honestly don’t recall them doing that in the past. No returns then, obviously.
  • Ledbury: Last day for an extra 40% off sale items w/ EXTRA40

The ancient passageway that was found under a Mayan temple

ADVERTISEMENT


The Maya civilization was one of the most breathtaking in the world, and full of lots of fascinating secrets, history, and myths. With each passing year we continue to learn more and more about the Mayans, and the legacy they left behind. We have often held the Egyptians in the highest regard for being such a fascinating and mysterious civilization.; remember secret passageways that were found in the pyramids? Well, now things are a little different because the Mayans are doing their bit to snatch the crown from the Egyptians.

Recently we read about a passageway that had been found underneath an ancient Mayan snake God temple. So far so normal, right? These civilizations had thousands of temples, and we reckon each of them probably has some kind of tunnel or passageway underneath it. But, this one is really fascinating, and we couldn’t wait to find out more.

The temple

The temple itself was known as Kukulcan Temple and was an edifice thought to have been built sometime between the 9th and 12th Century. The location in which it was built was also home to several underground water caverns that provided a lot of natural space underneath the temple. However, a recent discovery has been made that shows there may be more to this than we originally thought there was. A new tunnel has been discovered beneath this 98-foot monument, and it’s thought it could lead to a subterranean sinkhole.

The tunnel

We never actually knew the tunnel was there initially, and it was only recently discovered using a type of x-ray imaging. The tests, carried out by a group from UNAM in Mexico, has led to further research by a team from the Great Mayan Aquifer Project. They discovered the entrance to the subterranean sinkhole (or cenote as it’s known) within the ossuary room, which once acted as a tomb of sorts. They managed to make their way up the secret tunnel for a certain way before they came across a blockade. It is considered probable that the Mayans caused the blockage themselves, and that an amazing discovery would be made by removing it.

Possible reasons

Well, much of this site remains a mystery, even with this discovery. But, we know that the temple was erected as a tribute to the Mayan God Kukulcan. This deity is linked to human sacrifice and a cult, and this could be one of the links when it comes to explaining the usage and purpose of the tunnel. Efforts to produce a 3D map of the site are underway, and this will likely reveal more about the area and the specific site. This stunning feat of geology and archaeology surely has plenty more secrets to reveal.

Exploring ancient sites is always fun and exciting, and you never know how much new stuff is going to be revealed as a result. Understanding more about ancient civilizations is essential for helping us work out how they lived, as well as the legacies they have left behind. There are so many excellent things to consider, and these often take a long time to unearth. Let’s hope the further explorations and excavations yield some positive results.

Say What Now? Teens Under Investigation After ‘Black People are Trash’ Snapchat Video Goes Viral

A California high school student is under investigation by her school district after a racist video she recorded on Snapchat went viral on social media.

In the video, she recorded herself saying all sorts of racist foolishness.

“Black people are trash; they need to die,” she says in the video. As the girl speaks, she turns the camera to her friend, who pretends to be shocked before giggling in agreement.

The girl continues her racist rant:

“When the police were killing all those black people I was so happy, because I was like ‘Fuck black people, go die bitches.’”

According to CBS 13 Sacramento, her entire community is demanding an apology.

 

“If it was a joke, it wasn’t a funny joke at all,” said Camryn Tomlin. She couldn’t believe her ears when she saw the video on Twitter a few days ago.

Tomlin just graduated from Pleasant Grove High along with her cousin Breann Bray.

“It’s not right; I think she should be suspended if not even more,” Bray said.

“It’s as hateful as it gets, the type of words and the phrases she uses are despicable,” said Alin Cintean, a Sacramento attorney.

But Cintean says no crime has been committed.

“There’s nothing in there that would constitute a crime, there’s no immediate incitement to violence,” Cintean added.

Cintean says the U.S. Supreme Court gives public high schools more leeway to discipline students if the school believes their words are a threat.

The Elk Grove Unified School District sent CBS 13 a statement Wednesday responding to the racist post, saying the school is working with the students in the video and their families and investigating the incident.

“The school district needs to step up and do its part, they need to educate,” said Sharie Thompson, a member of the Black community.

The post wasn’t a surprise for Thompson, who has recently received threats at her Elk Grove salon.

She says the district needs to adopt new policies around racism, starting with the girl whose video whipped up a Twitter firestorm.

“Shame on you,” Thompson said, referring to the girl and her family.

Since the girl is a minor, news outlets aren’t reporting her name.

Best Champagnes Under $100, $500, $1000, and Beyond

It’s that time of the year again to celebrate! Traditionally, Champagne has been the drink of choice for a toast, and here at Gentleman’s Gazette, we thought it would be nice to suggest some names with a good price-pleasure ratio. Good reading and happy holidays!

What Is Champagne?

In technical terms, Champagne is the sparkling wine produced exclusively in a namesake region in the north of France. It undergoes a second fermentation inside the bottle, giving the wine its precious bubbles. Many countries have their own sparkling wines: Cava from Catalonia’s famous Penedès wine region in Spain; Franciacorta from Lombardia, which some consider a serious rival – in quality and prices – to Champagne, made with the same grapes; Brazilian sparkling espumantes, considered by Steven Spurrier (of Decanter magazine) “the best sparkling wine in the Southern Hemisphere”; Sekt from Germany; California sparkling wines, most produced by top French Maisons, just to name a few.

But what makes Champagne great is its aromatic complexity, the aging capacity of vintage cuvées and, of course, the allure of the world’s most loved wine.

With a complex story (unfortunately, too long to be told here), Champagne became the drink for celebrations. Churchill (or was it Napoleon?) quipped, “I could not live without Champagne. In victory I deserve it. In defeat I need it.”

Riedel Veritas Champagne glass

Riedel Veritas Champagne glass

It is better drunk with a wider glass (like this Riedel Veritas Champagne) than with flutes: the modest girth of the flute does not allow the aromas to develop properly. And it allows the perlage, the fine string of “pearls”, to form in the inner walls of the glass and run vertically to the surface of the wine, where they escape. With Champagne, the bubbles are an additional tasting element (besides color, aromas, and flavor) that you want to preserve. Before swallowing the wine, close your lips and let the bubbles form a foam. Try to chew it with the tongue: the firmer the foam, the better the Champagne.

A vintage or millesimé Champagne is the product of a single harvest (indicated on the label), reflecting the virtues of that crop; a NV or non-vintage Champagne is the result of a blend of many different wines from various crops, and it reflects the style of the Maison that they try to replicate year after year.

Now, take a look at the Champagnes we have selected for you, with options for every budget.

Under $ 100

It is not the easiest task to find great bubbly under $ 100, but a few names come to mind. These bottles deliver great taste, have excellent acidity – one of the most desirable Champagne characteristics – and elegance.

Piper Heidsieck Brut

Piper Heidsieck Brut

Piper Heidsieck Brut ($ 50) – With 93 points by Wine Spectator, this Champagne is one of the best buys around. You’ll find citric notes, brioche, flowers, and ripe white fruits in a creamy texture and a full body. It is the blend of over 100 crus, with a majority of Pinot Noirs and a small part of Pinot Meunier from Grande et Petite Montagne de Reims region.

Bollinger Brut Special Cuvée

Bollinger Brut Special Cuvée

Bollinger Brut Special Cuvée ($ 65) – Even though 007 has chosen other Champagnes in the past, presently his preference goes to Bollinger. Wine Spectator magazine awarded 94 points to this wine, considered full bodied and with good acidity. It is a non-vintage wine, meaning it will be a good portrait of the Maison style.

Roederer Brut Vintage 2008

Roederer Brut Vintage 2008

Roederer Brut Vintage 2008 ($ 70) – Louis Roederer is one of the last independent and family-run Champagne houses, founded in the same year as the United States of America. Elegant and light, this Champagne reflects perfectly the excellent vintage of 2008. It may benefit from a few more years of bottle aging, thanks to its structure.

Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé

Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé

Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé ($ 80) – With a medium to full body, red fruits, and a mineral touch, this is one of my favorite rosé Champagnes. The Maison, founded in 1818, is also independent and family-run, with its directors belonging to the 6th generation. Try it with lobster medallions and see if it deserves the 95 points bestowed by James Suckling.

Gosset Grand Blanc de Blancs Brut

Gosset Grand Blanc de Blancs Brut

Gosset Grand Blanc de Blancs Brut ($ 85) – Some say that a company’s age is a good sign of quality, and Gosset – established in 1584 – certainly endorses this saying. In their caves at Épernay, one of Champagne main production centers, they produce this Blanc de Blancs (meaning that it was made exclusively with Chardonnay grapes) with floral notes, apricot, and plum, besides a refreshing citrus flavor.

Ruinart Rose NV

Ruinart Rose NV

Ruinart Rose NV ($ 94) – Ruinart was the first to sell rosé Champagne – precisely on March 14, 1764, according to the historians at the Maison. Founded in 1729, it was also the first wine producer to sell exclusively Champagne – “wine with bubbles”, as the company ledgers state. It will deliver red fruits like cherry and strawberry, as well as brioche notes.

Under $ 500

Here you will find many tête de cuvée, the prestige wines of each Champagne Maison. Limited production, great care in grape and vineyard selection, and more often than not, a long period over the lees – the solid residues of the yeasts that provoked the second fermentation and the bubbles – are the reasons for a higher price.

Billecart Salmon Nicolas Francois Billecart Cuvee 1999

Billecart Salmon Nicolas Francois Billecart Cuvee 1999

Billecart Salmon Nicolas Francois Billecart Cuvee 1999 ($ 140) – A medium-bodied Champagne produced with Chardonnay from Côte des Blancs and Pinot Noir from Montagne de Reims, rendering tribute to the founder of the Maison. We find lightly toasted almonds, pear pie, dried dates, and a floral touch. It will be at its best if drunk now.

Piper Heidsieck Rare, Vintage 2002

Piper Heidsieck Rare, Vintage 2002

Piper Heidsieck Rare, Vintage 2002 ($ 150) – This Brut Champagne deserved 97 points from Wine Spectator, one of their highest ratings for a sparkling wine, very close to the 98 points given to the Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 1998 (selling for $ 2400 each). In WS comments, we find it “impeccably balanced and silky, with finely honed acidity shaping the expansive flavors of toasted brioche, crushed blackberry, lemon preserves and honey, revealing hints of Frangelico liqueur and smoked nut.”

Krug Grand Cuvée

Krug Grand Cuvée

Krug Grand Cuvée ($ 170) – Before you ask, the French Maison and California’s Charles Krug families are not related – not that we know of. This Champagne is the entry-level label of the brand, but don’t let this fact mislead you. Krug itself is a premium producer, and this Grand Cuvée is a product of some 120 wines from 10 vintages or more, a full-bodied wine, with white flowers, pears, and a lengthy finish.

Laurent Perrier Grand Siècle

Laurent Perrier Grand Siècle

Laurent Perrier Grand Siècle ($ 180) – Founded in 1812, the Maison produces this Grand Siècle label since 1959: it is the first cuvée prestige made with a blend of three exceptional vintages (previously, every prestige Champagne was made with wines from the same year). It is a Chardonnay/Pinot Noir blend, with toasted almonds, honey, hazelnuts, and brioche to the nose: a great companion for a refined dinner.

Pol Roger Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill 2002

Pol Roger Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill 2002

Pol Roger Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill 2002 ($ 210) – Some say that the greatest Briton drank 42,000 bottles of Champagne between 1908 and his death in 1965. Ever the master in the art of living well – and also, well beyond his means! –, Churchill was a good friend of Mme. Odette Pol-Roger, whom he met in a party in 1944, but her Champagne had been his favorite for a long time. In 1984, the Maison created the Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill, with a majority of Pinot Noir: its brioche and white fruit aromas produce an elegant wine.

Louis Roederer Cristal

Louis Roederer Cristal

Louis Roederer Cristal ($ 220) – Any best Champagne list would be incomplete without the wine created for a king – or better, for the Tsar Alexander II of Russia. Arguably one of the first prestige Champagnes – Decanter magazine mentions that the title should go to Dom Pérignon 1921, launched in 1936 – its bottle is clear (originally it was made of crystal, thus its name) and has a flat bottom, all to differentiate this wine from the Champagnes drunk by the Tsar subjects. A comment found in the website www.champagneclub.com says that “The wine is made since 1970 solely in stainless steel tanks with grapes from their own vineyards in Aÿ, Verenay, Verzyand and Cumiéres, mainly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Avize and Mesnil. Its style is ultrasophisticated with a wild silky softness in combination with nutty fireworks backed by exotic fruitiness in a caramel filled body.”

Dom Pérignon P2 Brut 1998

Dom Pérignon P2 Brut 1998

Dom Pérignon P2 Brut 1998 ($ 360) – The “P2” stands for Plénitude Deuxième, the “second plenitude” of the wine. The concept, according to the Maison Chef de Cave Richard Geoffroy, is a series of stages during the wine’s development on its lees which, once it is disgorged (depleted of the sediments), can represent ” different expressions of the same vintage”. In this case, we are talking about 12 years over the lees. Its tasting notes are honeysuckle, orange-colored fruits, and toasted almonds; its creamy chewiness is followed by a smoky, full energy finish.

Under $ 1000

All we said about the second range Champagnes is present in this selection, but in an even more refined, precise way.

Moët MCIII

Moët MCIII

Moët MCIII – ($ 470) – Mixing traditional and futuristic elements, Moët & Chandon – the “M” in LVMH – created the MCIII, where MC stands for the Maison name and the Roman number 3 suggests the production process: a Grand Cru vintage Champagne is blended with unoaked and oaked still wines. Its aroma palate brings up candied citrus fruits, plums, nectarines, dried figs and dates, vanilla and nutmeg. A promising new star in the Champagne firmament and the Maison’s tête de cuvée.

Salon Brut Blanc de Blancs Le Mesnil, 2006

Salon Brut Blanc de Blancs Le Mesnil, 2006

Salon Brut Blanc de Blancs Le Mesnil, 2006 ($ 530) – Salon is a single cru Champagne, produced with a single grape: Chardonnay. The Maison has a parcel with 2.48 acres, “Le Jardin de Salon”, as well as other 19 small parcels in Mesnil-sur-Oger, a grand cru of the Côte des Blancs terroir. Its aromas evoke white flowers, citrus zest, brioche, fresh hazelnuts, and more, with an incredible complexity but fine acidity, enabling it to age for 25-30 years. Wine Enthusiast gave it the rare note of 100 points.

Above $ 1000

It’s fair to question if a Champagne warrants such a price, but we could not resist. Originally, we thought of limiting our selection to Champagnes up to $ 1000, but there are two exceptions which forcefully represent, in our opinion, what makes Champagne such a prized wine.

Krug Clos du Mesnil

Krug Clos du Mesnil

Krug Clos du Mesnil ($ 1300) – The grapes (Chardonnay) for this Blanc de Blancs come from a tiny vineyard of 4.5 acres in the center of Mesnil-sur-Oger, enclosed (thus the “Clos”) by a wall since 1698. The 2000 vintage spent 10 years in the cellars and has notes such as gingerbread, candied lemon rind, vanilla, and heliotrope, with a long and lasting finish. The critics gave it 94 (Robert Parker) and 97 points (Wine Spectator). Think grilled giant prawns or lobster salad with citrus fruits to go with it.

Krug Clos d'Ambonnay

Krug Clos d’Ambonnay

Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 1998 ($ 2400) – When Krug decided to create a Champagne with the best Pinot Noir grapes, they searched Ambonnay, a grand cru that already supplied Krug. In 1991, they found a walled parcel on the south-eastern slope of the Montagne de Reims with only 1.68 acres. Its walls are a little newer than Clos du Mesnil’s, dating from 1766. The first vintage of Clos d’Ambonnay (1995) was released in 2007. The bottles age for over 12 years and due to the small size of the vineyard, production is also small (5,000 bottles). This Champagne shows aromas of apples, toffee, nuts, toasted bread, with a creamy mousse and long finish.

Conclusion

Champagne can often be a serious investment, but a great bottle is warranted on special occasions! What bottles have you encountered at various price points that have exceeded your expectations?

NFL Quarterback Jameis Winston Under Investigation for Allegedly Groping an Uber Driver

(TAMPA, Fla.) — The NFL is investigating an allegation that Jameis Winston groped a female Uber driver in 2016, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback has denied the allegation on his social media accounts.

The Buccaneers acknowledged the allegation on Friday and released a statement saying they are in the “process of obtaining further information regarding today’s media report. We take these matters seriously and are fully supportive of the investigation that is being conducted by the NFL.”

The NFL also released a statement saying that it has reached out to Uber to request more information.

The Uber driver told BuzzFeed News the incident stems from a 2 a.m. ride after a party in Scottsdale, Arizona, on March 13, 2016. Driver said Winston was the only passenger, and that he sat in the front seat and was yelling homophobic slurs at pedestrians. She said he then asked the driver to stop for food, and while waiting in a drive-thru, reached over and placed his hand on the woman’s crotch.

A representative for Winston, Russ Spielman, issued a statement denying the allegations. He said the only reason Winston’s name is attached to the allegation is because his Uber account was used to call the ride.

Winston reiterated his denial in postings on Twitter and Instagram on Friday.

“A news organization has published a story about me regarding an alleged incident involving a female Uber driver from approximately two years ago,” the quarterback wrote. “The story falsely accuses me of making inappropriate contact with this driver. I believe the driver was confused as to the number of passengers in the car and who was sitting next to her. The accusation is false, and given the nature of the allegation and increased awareness and consideration of these types of matters, I am addressing this false report immediately. At the time of the alleged incident, I denied the allegations to Uber, yet they still decided to suspend my account.

“I am supportive of the national movement to raise awareness and develop better responses to the concerns of parties who find themselves in these types of situations, but this accusation is false. While I am certain that I did not make any inappropriate contact, I don’t want to engage in a battle with the driver and I regret if my demeanor or presence made her uncomfortable in any way.”

Michael Jordan Gifts $7 Million To ‘Under Served Areas Of Charlotte’

NBA icon and Hornets owner Michael Jordan is donating $ 7 million to launch two medical clinics in troubled Charlotte communities.

According to reports, Jordan’s gift will fund Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Clinics to be built in north and northwest Charlotte. One will be at 3149 and 3153 Freedom Drive; the other will be in the Brightwalk development on Statesville Avenue, per the Charlotte Observer.

“Michael really wanted to do something personally, he and his family, in the North Carolina area, separate from the work we’ve done with the Hornets,” Jordan spokeswoman Estee Portnoy said, adding that the idea for the clinics emerged during Michael’s discussions with Novant — the Hornets’ official health care provider — about ways to help poor populations in Charlotte.

In a statement, Jordan said he was proud to partner with Novant “to bring critical health services to under-served areas of Charlotte and the thousands of North Carolinians with limited access to health care.”

Jordan said he hoped the clinics “will help provide a brighter and healthier future for the children and families they serve.”

“Novant has been the official health care provider for the Hornets since the inception of the franchise in 2004 when they were known as the Charlotte Bobcats.”

“Michael’s been a wonderful partner for us at Novant Health,” CEO Carl Armato said in an Observer interview. “This is not the first time that he personally has had such a dedication and commitment to the community and to our patients.”

Armato said the donation will help accelerate Novant’s ability “to provide remarkable care in some of these areas that have been under-served.”

“Novant said the two clinics will offer not only family physicians and pediatricians but also behavioral health, physical therapy, social work, oral health and family planning services.”

13 Tops to Layer Under Blazers

Blazers are fabulous, but wearing a suitable top underneath a blazer can be tricky, especially when tops with bell, fluted and lantern sleeves are all the trendy rage. 

Here are 13 types of tops to layer under blazers. Some are ultra feminine, and others read the opposite. You’re generally not after a top that is oversized and chunky unless the blazer is roomy too. In most cases blazers are tailored or a fluid fit, so you’re after a body-con, tailored or fluid fit top. Wear them untucked, semi-tucked or tucked. 

The effect of the layering top can be subtle, simple, complicated or bold. It can take on a variety of silhouettes, create a low or high contrast, look tonal, or fably texture-rich. Choose solids, patterns, knits or wovens. Add jewellery, watch and eyewear as desired.

1. Sleeveless Tops

Sleeveless tops, like simple shell tops, are popular with my clients because it’s comfortable and visually less bulky on the sleeves of the blazer. Choose a neckline that lies flat under the blazer, or rests comfortably above the collar. 

2. Turtlenecks

High necklines like mock turtlenecks and turtlenecks are a ‘70s Modern Classic under a blazer. The effect is extra polished when the neckline fits tightly and neatly against the neck. Chic. You need a long neck for this combination. 

3. Lightweight Pullovers

Pullovers with lower necklines like crew, scoop, boat, slash and V-necklines are fabulous under blazers, creating a streamlined effect. Sleeves can range from short to long. The larger the bust, the more flattering the effect of a lower neckline. 

4. Shirts

A stiff and crisp button-down shirt is a masculine and Tomboy option under a blazer, but can look sharp and professional nonetheless. Leave the collar of the shirt open and wear it over the collar of the blazer, and pop the collar if you like. I like to button my shirts and blouses all the way up, and pop the collar. Shirts with neckties work beautifully with the tie tied in a bow or knot.  

5. Blouses

A client favourite. Remember that a blouse is NOT a shirt. Blouses are softer and daintier. Blouse styles that you can wear under blazers run the gamut. Basic, pussy bow, empire cut, V-neck and ruffled collar styles with sleek sleeves are a good bet. 

6. T-Shirts

A T-shirt is an easy option to wear under a blazer, and another client favourite. It’s comfortable, easy to launder, dresses up the tee, and dresses down the blazer. Choose your neckline and Bob’s your uncle. 

7. Peplum Tops

Peplum blouses, tees, pullovers, leather tops and knitted tops are an acquired taste under a blazer. They add romantic flounce, and in most cases accentuate the waist. 

8. Pretty Camisoles

Here’s an alluring option with lace, or another type of dainty and sensual fabric. If you keep the jacket on and choose a silhouette with ample cleavage coverage, it’s completely work appropriate.

9. Waistcoats 

Another Tomboy and masculine option is to layer a button-through waistcoat under a blazer for a “Le Smoking” effect. Can be fun for dressier occasions, or simply style with jeans to dress the combination down. 

10. Crop Tops 

There are lots of crop tops at retail at the moment because they work well with the oh-so-trendy higher rises of jeans, shorts and trousers. From cropped tees and blouses to corsets and bustiers — they can all work under a blazer if you’re prepared to showcase some skin.  

11. Wrap Tops

A hardcore modern classic to wear under a blazer, and a particularly effective one for a shorter neck and/or larger bust. Try a body-con bodysuit version, if you dare. 

12. Hoodies 

Our third Tomboy option, and adorable if the fit of the hoodie is dead right. It has to be sleek and the neckline of the hoodie should fit quite closely around the neck. Pull-on or zip-through hoodies can work. Pull the hood over the collar of the blazer, and make sure it lies flat. 

13. Asymmetrical Tunics

Layering an asymmetrical tunic under a blazer creates a more avant-garde vibe that can be striking. If you’re worried about “chopping up the body” with the excess of horizontal lines, keep the tunic and blazer low contrast to each other. Or keep the tunic and bottoms low contrast to each other. And your third option is to create a tonal column of colour. 

You can also wear blazers over dresses and layered tops.

Personally, I layer finer gauge knitwear like crew necks, mock turtlenecks, boat necks and turtlenecks under blazers. I also layer drapey blouses, the occasional button-down shirt, gauzy polo shirt, peplum top and pussy bow shirt. My favourites are simple long-sleeved blouses and turtlenecks in tailored and fluid fits. Some of the blouses I layer are roomier than fluid, but because they drape well, they work under tailored blazers without creating bulk. Because I prefer the fit of my blazers to be on the roomier side of tailored, I can layer a camisole, thermal underwear, and a top with sleeves under them.  

Here are the exact tops from my wardrobe that I layer under blazers across the seasons: 

LOTS of options. The list is not exhaustive, but it gives you a solid starting point. Feel free to ask questions in the comments section about how to layer tops under blazers.

Sunny Anderson Under Fire For Victim Shaming Other Sexual Assault Victims

Source: Slaven Vlasic / Getty

Food Network host Sunny Anderson is facing backlash after posting a series of insensitive tweets about the sexual assault victims who came forth after she told her story.

“When I reported my 1st radio boss for sexual harassment, I felt brave,” she tweeted late Saturday night. “The 4 co-workers that came out AFTER me were not brave to me…at all.”

She added, “In fact I blamed them and still do for not being BRAVE and reporting him before he had a chance to make one more victim.”

The tweets continued,

“So, as all these women come out of the woodwork…ask yourself… were they complicit in their silence? Complicit when taking payoffs?”

“I refuse to call the 3rd, 4th, 5th, or 10th person to come out and say, “me too”, BRAVE. We can call them LATE though … or I can.”

The tweets have since been deleted but the damage is already done. Anderson apologized on Twitter, writing,

“I’ve deleted my obviously polarizing & offensive statement. As a victim & warrior against sexual harassment in the work place, I apologize.”

Anderson’s tweets couldn’t have come at a worse time as Alyssa Milano launched the hashtag #MeToo, which gave voice to many women who suffered sexual assault. Twitter exploded with nearly 500,000 tweets from women who expressed their stories on the social media platform.

It’s troubling to see women, especially one who has been through sexual assault, blame and shame other women. We must do better.

9 toddler toys under $25 to put on your list

by

Sabrina Garibian

posted in Products

I love talking toddler toys. Let’s be honest here, give your kids a cardboard box, a set of real keys and a remote control that lights up and they would be good to go. But buying toddler toys is fun, and with the right curated set you don’t need to break the bank to keep your child entertained and learning. Most importantly, they will have fun!

Here are 9 toddler toys under $ 25 to put on your list:

9 toddler toys under 25 to put on your list

1. Melissa & Doug Fire Chief Role Play Costume (Amazon, $ 23.99)

melissa and doug fireman costume toddler toys

Playing dress-up never gets old. My girls are obsessed with princesses, but so far we’ve been able to steer clear of the princess dresses. We love the fire chief costume because it comes with cool accessories!

2. LEGO DUPLO My First Farm (Amazon, $ 19.99)

toddler toys lego duplo

I imagine keeping our DUPLO and Magnatiles collections for grandchildren one day. That’s how much I value and love them. DUPLO are a great introduction to building toys. The pieces are bigger, making it easier for little hands to hold, and they click together satisfyingly to make all sorts of creations. Your imagination is your only limit! I also love that all sets work together so you can grow your collection slowly over time.

3. B. Parum Pum Pum Drum (Target, $ 22.99)

toddler toys parum pum pum drum

This drum also doubles as a storage bin for other musical instruments. Our original set is six years old and going strong. It is well loved by babies, toddlers, and preschoolers alike. The drum also doesn’t make a super loud soon unlike some other toy drums available.

4. adidas Performance Soccer Ball, size 3 (Amazon, $ 20.00)

toddler toys soccer ball

A size 3 soccer ball is just the right size for a toddler. This one is pretty self-explanatory because who doesn’t love kicking a ball around?

5. B. Dr. Doctor Medical Kit (Amazon, $ 21.95)

toddler toys doctor kit

I love toy doctor kits that are fairly realistic. This kit has been so helpful for our kids to understand and not be scared of their various doctor appointments. We’ve given pretend shots and played “sick” more times than I can count. The stethoscope also makes a realistic heartbeat!

6. Green Toys Tea Set (Amazon, $ 19.59)

toddler toys tea set

Finally, a tea set that isn’t covered in frilly pinks and purples everywhere. I love this tea set because it’s food safe so you can actually use it for tea, or water, or whatever tickles your tea party fancy.

7. Melissa & Doug Farm Wooden Chunky Puzzle, 8 pieces (Amazon, $ 9.65)

toddler toys puzzle

Putting together and solving puzzles are apparently a very important step in developing a young brain. This starter puzzle can do double duty as a puzzle or as the animals in your latest animal play. My toddler likes to put together the puzzle and then take the pieces out and line them up in her pretend farm.

8. Play-Doh Doctor Drill ‘n Fill Retro Pack (Amazon, $ 10.59)

toddler toys play doh

You’re either into Play-Doh or you’re not. I love it and feel like I may have lived a previous life as a Play-Doh artist. My kids do too, but this set is especially fun. You can play pretend dentist while making teeth, brushing teeth, making pretend brackets and filling cavities. The drill even vibrates and spins like a real drill might.

9. Hot Wheels Decorative Gift Pack, 9 cars (Amazon, $ 9.47)

toddler toys hot wheels

There’s a reason why Hot Wheels have been around for decades and continue to be popular. These cars are so fun for children of all ages. My kids have turned just about every surface into a road for their cars, and they don’t take up too much space. These will never go out of style.

SPLURGE: Magna-Tiles Clear Colors 32 piece set (Amazon, $ 49.99)

magnatiles

Now, hear me out here. Magnatiles are super pricey, like, really, really pricey. However they are ridiculously fun to build with, and you can add to your collection slowly over time. We have been slowly building up our collection for years, and we all enjoy building with them. If you’re willing and able to spend a little bit more on a toddler toy gift, this is the route you want to take. I’ve compared Magna-Tiles vs. Magformers in the past if you’re trying to decide between the two.

If you’re looking for a toddler toy gift to buy for the little toddler in your life, this list is for you!
