Scouted: The Backpack Deserves a Chance

In reality, backpacks are just tote bags, but much more ergonomic. They’ve been ruthlessly maligned as the symbol of youth and immaturity, and yet, brands continue to produce them in droves.

The current iteration of the backpack comes in many forms, but they all remain similar in inherent design: a bag with a large opening, two straps and a closure. But that design takes shape in many different forms, functions, and fabrics, but it stays humble to its original design.

Study: Black Hair Products Contain High Levels of Toxic Chemicals

A new study found that hair products marketed to black women contain high levels of toxic chemicals, which may be linked to illness and disease that disproportionately affect black women.

The study, which was conducted by the Silent Spring Institute and published in the journal Environmental Research, examined 18 different products geared towards black women, like hot oil treatments, anti-frizz hair polishes, leave-in conditioners, root stimulators, hair lotions and hair relaxers. The results found all of the products tested contained hazardous chemicals, including parabens, a type of preservative that can interfere with a woman’s natural estrogen level and has been linked to breast cancer, and phthalates, which can damage the liver, kidneys, lungs and reproductive system.

“Chemicals in hair products, and beauty products in general, are mostly untested and largely unregulated,” said Jessica Helm, Ph.D., the study’s lead author and a scientist at Silent Spring, in a statement. “This study is a first step toward uncovering what harmful substances are in products frequently used by Black women, so we can better understand what’s driving some of the health issues they’re facing.”

The study’s findings are consistent with data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which found black women have higher levels of some phthalates and parabens in their bodies compared with white women. The findings could help researchers understand why black women may experience early puberty and have higher rates of hormone-related issues such as uterine fibroids, infertility, and pre-term births. “We know from previous research that black women suffer disproportionately from hormone-related health problems,” said Helm.

“Black women are over-exposed and under-protected from toxic chemicals,” says Janette Robinson Flint, executive director of Black Women for Wellness. Black women also purchase and use more hair products than other groups. In fact, a Nielsen study found African Americans spent $ 54 million on ethnic hair and beauty products last year.

Helm also shared advice for black women looking to find safer options for hair products. “Look for opportunities to use fewer products,” she said. “When choosing a product, know which products are made with plants or that are fragrance-, phthalate- and paraben-free.” Furthermore, you women of color can download the Detox Me app for more tips on how to reduce exposure to harmful chemicals in personal care products.

Here are other highlights from the study:

  • All products tested contained fragrance chemicals
  • 78% contained parabens
  • 72% of products contained parabens and diethyl phthalate
  • 84% of the chemicals detected were not listed on the product label
  • 11 products contained seven chemicals prohibited in the European Union (EU) or regulated under California’s Proposition 65
  • Hair relaxers marketed at children contained the highest levels of five chemicals prohibited in the EU or regulated under Proposition 65
  • Parabens, fragrances, nonylphenols, and diethyl phthalate were commonly found in root stimulators, hair lotions and hair relaxers.
  • Cyclosiloxanes were more frequently detected in anti-frizz products and at the highest concentrations of any chemical measured.

Paris Saint-Germain, Manish Arora Collaborate on Capsule

KICKING AROUND COLORS: Manish Arora has teamed up with French soccer team Paris Saint-Germain for a capsule collection that will be shown at the designer’s Thursday runway show.
Arora said he was inspired by France’s “iconic” FIFA World Cup victory this year, and splashed colorful portraits of soccer stars Kylian Mbappé and Neymar onto the clothing.
“For me, creativity has no boundaries, and I really challenged myself to explore a new field,” the designer said.
The collaboration comes as the club’s owners, Qatari Sports Investments, seek to bolster the Paris Saint-Germain’s international appeal, recently opening offices in Doha and Singapore.
The ready-to-wear collection will be sold in February 2019 in China and India.

Kaiser Permanente Announces Continued Commitment to Fighting Antibiotic Resistance

OAKLAND, Calif. — Kaiser Permanente, the nation’s largest nonprofit integrated health care system, announced today at the United Nations General Assembly its continued commitment to remaining a strong antimicrobial steward by joining the “AMR Challenge,” an unprecedented joint effort led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to address the growing threat of antibiotic resistance.

“Physicians at Kaiser Permanente share the CDC’s commitment to elevating visibility of the growing threat of antibiotic resistance around the world,” said Stephen Parodi, MD, associate executive director for The Permanente Medical Group, which cares exclusively for Kaiser Permanente members in Northern California. “As an infectious disease specialist, I can tell you we are seeing new types of resistance worldwide, which is why Kaiser Permanente champions initiatives to avoid unnecessary antimicrobial usage. Our physicians and pharmacists are dedicated to optimizing antimicrobial prescribing in the inpatient, outpatient and skilled nursing facility settings.”

As part of today’s announcement, Kaiser Permanente is demonstrating its continued commitment to antimicrobial best practices in the inpatient, outpatient and skilled nursing facility settings as well as through its medical product sourcing processes. Some of these ongoing efforts include:

  • Programs and guidelines to eliminate inappropriate antimicrobial use in patients with certain conditions
  • Advanced use of our electronic medical record to guide prescribing practice for antimicrobials
  • Improved tracking, data collection and reporting of antimicrobial practices
  • Facilities, sanitation and environmental practices that support infection prevention and control efforts

Antibiotic resistance occurs when germs develop the ability to defeat the drugs designed to kill them. According to the World Health Organization, antimicrobial resistance is an increasingly serious threat to global public health that requires action across all government sectors and society. In the U.S. alone, at least 2 million people get resistant infections each year and at least 23,000 people die, according to the CDC. The resistance is caused primarily by over-prescription of antibiotic medications and indiscriminate use of antimicrobial compounds in soaps and other consumer goods.

Kaiser Permanente joins more than 100 health insurance and pharmaceutical companies, health care providers, food animal producers and purchasers, government health officials and other leaders from around the world to work together and accelerate the fight worldwide against antimicrobial resistance. It follows pledges made by Kaiser Permanente at the White House Forum on Antibiotic Stewardship in 2015, announcing public and private commitments to slow the emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

“Kaiser Permanente’s pledge to remain a strong antimicrobial steward builds on our longstanding environmental-stewardship commitment and will further align our business practices with our mission of improving the health of our members and the communities in which we serve,” said Kathy Gerwig, vice president of Employee Safety, Health and Wellness, and environmental stewardship officer of Kaiser Permanente. “These efforts are part of our ambitious 2025 environmental goals for a healthier future for all that include becoming carbon neutral, buying only sustainably produced food and sending zero waste to landfills.”

Kaiser Permanente has a long history of working with manufacturers to remove harmful chemicals from the products it purchases and to develop greener and safer products that are now widely available to consumers. With thousands of projects underway at any given time across Kaiser Permanente’s 39 hospitals and more than 680 medical offices, the decision to ban these products has significant influence.

Recently, Kaiser Permanente announced it has integrated a robust set of purchasing standards into its product-sourcing processes that include criteria for safe chemicals and sustainable waste disposal, such as a total elimination of antibacterial agents triclosan and triclocarban from soaps, lotions and sanitizers used at its facilities.

And in 2015, Kaiser Permanente banned paint and other interior building products treated with “germ-fighting” antimicrobial agents for use in its hospitals and other buildings to address concerns about mounting exposure to toxic chemicals in everyday life and the threat of drug-resistant bacteria. That same year, the organization formalized its opposition to finishes and fabrics containing antimicrobial chemicals and identified 15 specific antimicrobial chemicals to ban from its hospitals and other buildings because they can be toxic to both people and the environment.

Scientists think that maybe electrically shocking coral reefs is a good idea

coral reef recovery

It’s no secret that the Earth’s coral reefs are in dire need of some TLC. Combinations of severe weather and manmade global warming have left massive stretches of coral dead all over the world, and countries are ponying up huge sums of cash to try to fix the problem. If we let the coral die, it’ll cost us dearly, so all efforts are on the table.

One new initiative requires metal and electricity, which probably doesn’t sound like a combination that would help coral get back on its feet. Nevertheless, as NewScientist reports, it could actually be the perfect recipe for recovery.

[VIDEO] DeForest Soaries: How You Can Become A Corporate Board Member – And Get Paid

BLACK ENTERPRISE recently released our annual Registry of Corporate Directors, revealing that there are currently 308 African Americans sitting on the boards of 316 companies found on the S&P 500 – 63% of the index. That means that 37% of the nation’s largest publicly traded companies refuse to include blacks on their boards.

VIEW THE FULL 2018 REGISTRY OF BLACK CORPORATE BOARD MEMBERS

As we examine the underrepresentation of African Americans in corporate governance, we continue to field questions—especially from young professionals-–on how African Americans can become corporate board members. To discover the route to the boardroom, you should listen to DeForest B. Soaries, Jr., a Baptist minister, author and public advocate who created the “free financial freedom movement,” the faith-based wealth-building system targeted to black communities.

He’s also an independent director at three major companies: Federal Home Loan Bank of New York; Ocwen Financial Corporation (NYSE:OCN); Independence Realty Trust (NYSE:IRT).  Soaries is a tireless advocate for board diversity and activism, tired of seeing a surfeit of privileged white executives making $ 200,000 a year on boards while “black geniuses have no idea how to get there.”  As such, Soaries is unveiling an online “master class” that will offer expert insight on gaining a top position as a paid corporate director.

In his own words, Soaries shares how he gained entry to corporate boards, uses his position to impact change and the importance of diversity in corporate governance today. We have also included a video that shares information on his board education program.

Deforest Soaries on How to Become a Corporate Board Member 

I was invited to serve on the board of directors of a small, community bank 25 years ago. The bank was located around the corner from my church. Although I had no experience in banking, I felt this opportunity would put me in a position to help my church members and community residents develop a strong working relationship with the institution. It was a relationship I wanted to bring together because the bank had the resources we needed to increase access to home mortgages, business loans, educational financing and convenient savings. I didn’t go into this work to accomplish my personal goals. My first impulse was to treat this board appointment as a goal for community accomplishment. In fact, when I officially became a director, I asked the bank to host a reception for my members and community residents to attend. They did just that. More than 200 people jammed in the lobby of this small bank to celebrate the first African-American bank director they had ever had, and the first African-American bank director they had ever known.

Being a director at the bank did put me in a good position to build stronger ties between the community and the bank. We started a micro business loan program for small businesses that needed working capital; we offered mortgages for first time home buyers, and we provided other financial products to the local neighborhood. Not only did my relationship with the bank help a lot of people build banking relationships, but it also helped the bank improve its Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) rating with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). My serving on this bank’s board of directors was a win/win situation.

The success stories don’t end there. At one of my first meetings, the vice president of the bank asked me to complete paperwork that included the same form a working employee would complete. When I asked why they needed me to complete those forms, she informed me that they were necessary in order to process my director fees.

I had no idea that the bank was going to pay me to attend meetings and to help the bank help my community.

Besides, I had served on boards of directors previously, and all of them were non-profit organizations that expected me to donate money to them in order to secure a seat on their board. I had no idea there were boards that paid their directors to serve. This made my bank directorship a win/win/win situation!

[Related: 10 African American Board Directors You Need to Know]

This new insight prompted me to study the world of corporate governance and paid directorships. I quickly learned that many people I knew were serving on boards of major corporations and being paid more money as part-time directors than I was getting paid as a full-time pastor. That was the year I decided to learn everything there was to know about being a paid corporate director, and then pursue corporate directorship opportunities for the rest of my life. Since that time, I have served as a paid director on five corporate boards. The experience and expertise I have gained caused me to commit myself to helping others accomplish the goal of becoming paid corporate directors.

The free enterprise system is the most successful economic model in the world. The strength of that system depends on strong, integral corporate governance that protects investors, owners, lenders and customers by holding executives and managers accountable to sound business practices.

When corporations have such governance, investors, employees and consumers enjoy prosperity that yields benefits for current and future generations.

Diversity, mobility and technology have combined impact on markets today like never before. We live in the fastest changing time in human history. Corporate leadership is facing the pressure of having to expand the types of individuals that oversee corporate planning, innovation and execution. Increasingly, companies need directors with backgrounds in technology, cultural diversity, international business and cyber security. The days when company leaders can sit on each other’s boards and function as rubber stamps for their management decisions are long gone. New legal requirements have opened the door to more directors who are independent of all company executives and businesses, and major corporate disruptions have forced corporate leaders to be more adaptable and flexible than ever before.

Now is the time to create a new pipeline of talented people who will be available for corporate director service. I intend to play a role in developing that pipeline.

Max Scherzer 17th pitcher since 1900 to strike out 300 in season

WASHINGTON — Chalk up another milestone for Max Scherzer. The Washington Nationals ace recorded his 300th strikeout of the season Tuesday night. The landmark whiff came in the top of the seventh inning, when Scherzer got Miami Marlins rookie Austin Dean swinging on a 3-2 slider for the second out. Prior to ringing up Dean on the 10th pitch of the at-bat, Scherzer threw four consecutive fastballs, each of which the Miami left fielder fouled off. After every offering, the boisterous fans at Nationals Park, which included Scherzer’s wife, Erica, grew louder and louder, chanting, "Let’s go, Max!" When Dean finally struck out, Scherzer smacked his glove in excitement and waved as the crowd of 26,483 gave him a prolonged standing ovation. "I definitely wanted to do it here at home," said Scherzer, who’s on schedule to make his final start Sunday, when Washington wraps up the season in Colorado. "The fans, unbelievable support.

Review: Is Prince’s ‘Piano And A Microphone’ Release Worthy Of His Legacy?

If you’re a Prince fan, you’ve likely been in mourning since he transitioned to the upper realms 2 and a half years ago. Since then, amongst the infighting among former camp members, the ongoing mystery of the circumstances behind the alleged overdose death of one of the world’s most clean-living musicians, the big question has been how do you best respect his vast legacy?

With the number of releases in Prince’s famed vault of unreleased recordings said to be able to provide new music until the next millennium, the challenge is figuring out how and what and when to release it. Prince was an active musician for 37 years and, according to the archivist charged with cataloguing all his vault tapes, was working on music almost up until he passed away.

Given that Prince was on “The Piano and a Microphone” tour in the last year of his life, that the first vault release reflects that is fitting, although it would be great if the Estate would release the video from the very first one he did in January 2016 at Paisley Park. Those who have been to the Celebration at Paisley can attest that it is among the most personal of his concerts as he details, using the piano, his evolution as an artist from the very beginning.

But until then, Piano and a Microphone 1983 offers an intimate look into his artistic process. From the opening where Prince asks ‘Is that my echo?’ and then asks for the lights to be turned down, you are intimately immersed into a fluid musical mind. The 9 tracks are a window into the creation of such classic Prince songs as ’17 Days,’ ‘Purple Rain’ and ‘Strange Relationship’ as well as some segues into covers of Joni Mitchell’s ‘A Case Of You’ and the gospel standard ‘Mary Don’t You Weep,’ which provided the coda for Spike Lee’s latest film Black KKKlansman.

As any true Prince fans knows from years of collecting bootlegs, Prince often did multiple versions of his songs. There are at least 10 versions of ‘Something In The Water Don’t Compute’ from 1999, all of which are completely different takes on it. It’s as though Prince heard and explored every possible way one song, chorus, lyric and melody could be modified, upgraded, turned into an instrumental or subtly changed by altering tempo, changing the instrumentation or the way the hook was played or sang. That is showcased on Piano and a Microphone 1983 from an a capella version of the chorus of “Purple Rain” to an early working version of “17 Days” to a portion of “International Lover.”

What this provides is a close-up view of a great artist creating. You can hear everything from his foot stomping the piano’s pedals to him sniffling on “Mary Don’t You Weep” as having a cold didn’t stop his creating one bit. Collaborator Jill Jones has described laying under Prince’s piano looking out onto the Minnesota countryside in the early years while he played for hours. That you won’t ever have that experience is somewhat alleviated by the fact that through Piano and a Microphone 1983 you can at least get a sense of what that may have felt like.

Piano and a Microphone 1983 Track Listing:

“17 Days”

“Purple Rain”

“A Case Of You”

“Mary Don’t You Weep”

“Strange Relationship”

“International Lover”

“Wednesday”

“Cold Coffee & Cocaine”

“Why The Butterflies”

How to Watch the ‘Sunday Night Football’ Patriots vs. Lions Football Game Online for Free

The New England Patriots will take on the Detroit Lions on Sunday. The Sunday Night Football game is scheduled to kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET, and will be broadcast on NBC.

But there are alternatives for those who want to tune in without cable.

As Money has previously reported in detail, fans can stream NFL games live on their phones for free this season, using the Yahoo Sports app and the NFL App. But there’s a catch: These apps only allow viewers to stream games live if they are watching on their phone, not on TV. Sometimes, viewers are required to stream games using data, not Wi-Fi, which could cost you depending on your phone plan.

While not every NFL game is available for streaming on those apps, primetime Sunday Night Football games are — including the Patriots vs. Lions matchup tonight.

For fans looking to catch the game on television for free, one option is a free trial of a TV streaming service, such as Fubo TV, Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, Sling TV or YouTube TV — all of which offer some NFL games, depending on the channels they serve.

The Patriots vs. Lions game will be broadcast on NBC, and it should be possible to watch the game on any streaming service that carries NBC.

In light of the sexual assault accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford that allegedly went unreported for decades, Padma Lakshmi is sharing her own experience.

In an op-ed in the New York Times published Tuesday, the Top Chef host, 48, wrote that she dated a 23-year-old college student when she was 16 because he was “charming and handsome” and would “flirt” with her at her part-time retail job at a mall in Los Angeles. But just a few months into the relationship, Lakshmi says he sexually assaulted her while she was sleeping.

“When we went out, he would park the car and come in and sit on our couch and talk to my mother,” Lakshmi began. “He never brought me home late on a school night. We were intimate to a point, but he knew that I was a virgin and that I was unsure of when I would be ready to have sex.”

Then, she stated: “On New Year’s Eve, just a few months after we first started dating, he raped me.”

The mom of one shared several details of the encounter, explaining that she was neither drinking nor wearing anything revealing — though “it doesn’t matter,” she asserted — and that she went home with him, fell asleep, and woke up with him on top of her.

“I asked, ‘What are you doing?’ ” Lakshmi recalled. “He said, ‘It will only hurt for a while.’ ‘Please don’t do this,’ I screamed.”

Lakshmi says she felt it was her fault at the time. “We had no language in the 1980s for date rape,” she wrote.

The cookbook author also referenced an earlier experience with sexual abuse, this time allegedly by her stepfather’s relative when she was only 7. She said her parents sent her away after she told them. “The lesson was: If you speak up, you will be cast out,” Lakshmi said. She told this story on Twitter last Friday.

In the Times, the model drew connections between her story and current events, namely the allegations against Justice Kavanaugh and President Donald Trump’s comments questioning why Dr. Ford didn’t file a police report at the time—which caused the hashtag #WhyIDidntReport to trend on Twitter.

Lakshmi wrote of Ford and second Kavanaugh accuser Deborah Ramirez: “I understand why both women would keep this information to themselves for so many years, without involving the police. For years, I did the same thing.”

“I have nothing to gain by talking about this,” she continued. “But we all have a lot to lose if we put a time limit on telling the truth about sexual assault and if we hold on to the codes of silence that for generations have allowed men to hurt women with impunity.”

The Bravo star has been politically outspoken in the past, most recently with the defense of the ideology of her friend Susan Sarandon.

After the Thelma & Louise actress, 71, renewed her feud with Debra Messing and received further backlash from commenters criticizing her support of a third-party candidate in the 2016 presidential election, Lakshmi urged followers to consider others’ opinions and lay off Sarandon.

“I’ve known @SusanSarandon for a decade,” Lakshmi tweeted. “There are very few actresses who are such dedicated humanitarians and activists. Instead of vilifying someone for endorsing a third party candidate in 2016, why not focus on what you’re doing in your community to create change?”

The Love, Loss and What We Ate author continued: “Sometimes we have different opinions than our friends or people in our industry but it’s important to have a dialogue to learn and grow. This ‘cancel’ culture and progressive infighting isn’t the solution. Stop bullying Susan.”

On Monday, other stars like Samantha Bee, Alyssa Milano, and Kerry Washington participated in the nationwide #BelieveSurvivors walkout in support of Dr. Ford, which was organized by Planned Parenthood.

5 respuestas sobre la nueva propuesta migratoria de “carga pública” de Trump

Una regla propuesta por la Casa Blanca dificultaría que los inmigrantes legales obtengan la residencia permanente si han recibido ciertos tipos de asistencia pública, incluidos Medicaid, cupones de alimentos y subsidios para la vivienda. Este estatus migratorio les permite vivir y trabajar permanentemente en los Estados Unidos.

“Aquellos que buscan migrar a los Estados Unidos deben demostrar que pueden mantenerse económicamente”, dijo Kirstjen Nielsen, secretaria del Departamento de Seguridad Nacional (DHS), en un comunicado.

La propuesta, que se anunció el sábado 22 de septiembre a la noche, marca una nueva frontera en el esfuerzo a largo plazo de la administración Trump por frenar la inmigración, tanto ilegal como legal. Esta norma ya ha provocado intensas críticas por parte de los demócratas, activistas contra la pobreza, organizaciones de atención médica y defensores de los derechos de los inmigrantes: consideran que busca poner en práctica restricciones sin precedentes.

“Estamos operando en un clima general de gran temor y ansiedad como resultado del enfoque general de la administración sobre la aplicación de las políticas migratorias”, dijo Mark Greenberg, investigador principal del Migration Policy Institute, quien estudia las políticas de migración y refugiados a nivel local, nacional e internacional. Greenberg también es un ex funcionario de la administración Obama.

Pero, ¿qué efecto tendría esta propuesta?

Es una pregunta complicada, que toca a vastos programas gubernamentales, con miles de millones de dólares en juego. Si bien las implicaciones todavía no son claras, Kaiser Health News analiza algunos de los elementos clave.

  1. Primero lo primero: ¿Qué está proponiendo la Casa Blanca?

La administración Trump quiere redefinir un concepto conocido como “carga pública”, una categoría que se usa para determinar si una persona que busca el estatus de residente permanente “es probable que se vuelva dependiente principalmente del gobierno para subsistir”.

En el pasado, las personas corrían el riesgo de que se las definiera como una “carga pública” si recibían asistencia monetaria en efectivo, conocida como Asistencia Temporal para Familias Necesitadas o Ingreso de Seguridad Suplementario, o ayuda federal para pagar la atención médica a largo plazo. (Los inmigrantes deben estar legalmente en el país por cinco años antes de ser elegibles para esta asistencia).

Y esa designación de “carga pública” podía socavar sus solicitudes de residencia permanente (cuando un inmigrante solicita la tarjeta verde, o Green Card).

La nueva regla ampliaría la lista para incluir a algunos programas de seguros de salud, alimentos y vivienda. Específicamente, penalizaría a los que aspiran a tener una tarjeta verde por usar Medicaid, el programa de salud federal-estatal para personas de bajos ingresos. (Las sanciones no se aplicarían por usar Medicaid en ciertas emergencias o para algunos servicios que brinda a través de escuelas y programas para personas con discapacidades).

El uso de cupones de alimentos, la asistencia para rentas de la Sección 8 y los vales de vivienda federales también funcionarían en contra de los solicitantes. La inscripción en un subsidio de la Parte D de Medicare, que ayuda a las personas de bajos ingresos a comprar medicamentos recetados, también los perjudicaría.

La propuesta “es definitivamente un cambio dramático con respecto a cómo funciona la carga pública hoy”, dijo Kelly Whitener, profesora asociada del Centro para Niños y Familias de la Universidad de Georgetown, quien se especializa en beneficios de salud pediátrica y sistemas de atención administrada.

Una versión de la regla que se filtró a la prensa en marzo sugiere que los funcionarios también estaban considerando penalizar a aquellos que reciben subsidios para comprar un seguro de salud en los mercados establecidos por la Ley de Cuidado de Salud Asequible (ACA). Pero esa idea no estaba en la propuesta publicada el 22 de septiembre. Los subsidios del mercado están dirigidos a personas con un nivel de ingresos generalmente más alto a los que apunta el plan de Trump, señaló Whitener.

“Realmente se están enfocando en los inmigrantes de bajos ingresos”, agregó.

Nielsen dijo que la regla propuesta tiene “la intención de promover la autosuficiencia de los inmigrantes y proteger los recursos limitados”.

  1. Como dicen los críticos, ¿es cierto que esta medida no tiene precedentes?

Sí.

La carga pública es un viejo concepto. En la década de los 90, legisladores lo ampliaron para considerar explícitamente si las personas habían recibido asistencia social en efectivo.

Pero incluir programas como Medicaid y cupones de alimentos, que tienen un alcance mucho más amplio, es un cambio significativo. Es más probable que afecte a los trabajadores: la mayoría de las personas con Medicaid están empleadas, y casi el 80% vive en familias con al menos un miembro activo, según datos compilados por la Kaiser Family Foundation.

Los niños que son ciudadanos estadounidenses, pero cuyos padres son inmigrantes, podrían ser los más propensos a sufrir repercusiones, dijeron expertos. Cuando los padres optan por no recibir asistencia pública por temor a su propio estatus legal, es menos probable que sus hijos se inscriban, por ejemplo, en el Programa de Seguro Médico Infantil (CHIP), para el cual calificarían.

Para ser claros, recibir ayuda pública no necesariamente evitará que las personas obtengan una tarjeta verde. Pero podría afectar el proceso negativamente.

“Otro componente es la enorme libertad que tendrá la administración bajo su propuesta para emitir juicios sobre quién será admitido en el país y quién recibirá la residencia permanente”, dijo Greenberg.

  1. ¿Cuándo entrará en vigencia este cambio de política?

Este es el primer paso en el complejo proceso de elaboración de reglas federales. Y hay muchas cosas que podrían cambiar.

Una vez que la regla propuesta aparece en el Registro Federal, comienza una cuenta regresiva de 60 días, durante la cual cualquier persona puede opinar.

Una regla final probablemente no entraría en vigencia hasta 2019.

Y el DHS todavía está recopilando opiniones sobre algunos detalles. Por ejemplo, no ha decidido si CHIP se contará como uno de los programas elegibles dentro del nuevo paraguas de “carga pública”.

Mientras tanto, no se penalizaría a las personas que recibieron beneficios públicos antes que la regla entre en vigencia.

  1. Sin embargo, la propuesta ya está teniendo efectos

El DHS estima que el 2.5% de los inmigrantes elegibles abandonarían los programas de beneficios públicos debido a este cambio, lo que representaría alrededor de $ 1.5 mil millones en dinero federal por año. Pero otros esperan un impacto mucho mayor.

“Los efectos irán mucho más allá de los individuos directamente afectados”, dijo Greenberg. “Hay razones considerables para creer que [la estimación de la Casa Blanca] puede ser una subestimación significativa”.

En la regla propuesta, el DHS señala que los cambios podrían resultar en “peores resultados de salud”, “mayor uso de salas de emergencia”, “mayor prevalencia de enfermedades contagiosas”, “mayores tasas de pobreza” y otras preocupaciones.

Dada la complejidad de estos programas y la regla propuesta, y las altas apuestas en juego, los inmigrantes de bajos ingresos tendrían muchas más probabilidades de evitar por completo los beneficios públicos, dijeron expertos en inmigración. Es probable que millones de inmigrantes se vean afectados directa o indirectamente, según el Center for Law and Social Policy, una organización sin fines de lucro con sede en Washington, DC.

Eso podría tener graves consecuencias para la salud.

Familias podrían dejar de vacunar gratuitamente a sus niños, aunque éstos sean elegibles y aunque la inmunización no esté sujeta a la regla de “carga pública”, por temor de poner en peligro una residencia permanente, ejemplificó Whitener.

Agregó que ya hay informes de personas que rechazan la asistencia federal, a pesar que aún no ha sucedido nada.

“El factor miedo no se puede subestimar”, dijo.

  1. ¿La gente va a demandar?

Es probable que haya acciones legales.

Funcionarios como el fiscal general de California, Xavier Becerra, quien frecuentemente se ha enfrentado a la Casa Blanca, están analizando los desafíos a la regla.

“La propuesta de la administración Trump está castigando a las familias inmigrantes trabajadoras, incluso apuntando a niños que son ciudadanos, por utilizar programas que brindan nutrición básica y atención médica. Esto es un ataque contra nuestras familias y nuestras comunidades”, dijo Becerra en un comunicado.

Pero estas acciones dependen de lo que contenga la norma final, que podría cambiar a través del proceso de elaboración.

“Es probable que reciban una gran cantidad de comentarios drásticamente críticos, y no hay forma de saber qué cambios podrían hacer como resultado”, dijo Greenberg.

La cobertura de KHN de los problemas de salud de los niños es apoyada en parte por la Heising-Simons Foundation.

Padma Lakshmi Reveals Her Sexual Assault Story – It Was “Excruciating”

In an op-ed written for the New York Times, Padma Lakshmi revealed her story of sexual assault which she experienced at the age of 16. The host of Top Chef explained in her short essay why she chose not to speak to the police.

In the piece, she suggested her readers would want to know whether or not she had been drinking or not, or if she had been “ambiguous” about her desires.

However, the reality star explained, none of the aforementioned details are important. Her essay echoed sentiments often made by feminists and assault survivors, who charge that society “blames the victim,” by suggesting women’s clothing, behavior, or choice of language played a role in their victimization.

Padma said that she and her 23-year-old boyfriend at the time went to several parties together, and she was tired, so she laid in the bed and fell asleep.

She woke to find her boyfriend on top of her, raping her. He explained his actions as an attempt to not have her experience any pain during her first time having intercourse.

Padma pleaded for him not to do it, and “the pain was excruciating;” her “tears felt like fear.” He said to her following the rape, “I thought it would hurt less if you were asleep.”

According to the Top Chef host, she had absorbed “certain lessons” of the time, but only recently came to understand that what had happened to her was, in fact, rape.

Additionally, she spoke of being assaulted by her step-father’s relative when she was 7-years-old. When she informed her parents, they sent her to live in India with her grandparents. Lakshmi, in the closing remarks of her article, urged for survivors to tell their stories of sexual assault, so “codes of silence” don’t permit men to abuse women with “impunity.”

AT&T Exec: We Don’t ‘Spend a Lot of Energy’ on Justice Department Appeal of Time Warner Merger

The Department of Justice may be waging war to roll back AT&T and Time Warner’s $ 85 billion merger, but for the CEO in charge of the lion’s share of AT&T’s revenue, the bite seems to register as a tickle.

“We don’t spend a lot of energy right now [on the DoJ], we’re focused on integration,” John Donovan, CEO of AT&T’s division that includes entertainment and business said at Fortune’s Brainstorm Reinvent conference in Chicago on Tuesday. “That’s a lawyer activity at this point in the appeal process, so we’re moving ahead and making it work.”

The deal between AT&T and Time Warner closed earlier this year after a federal judge rejected efforts to block the deal based on antitrust concerns. At the time, the acquisition was dubbed a “landmark” case for setting the tone for future mega media mergers.

But the DoJ appealed the approval in July, arguing that such a consolidation could raise prices for consumers while stifling competition. At the time, Washington, DC federal Judge Richard Leon, who had ruled in favor of the the merger, said such an appeal could delay the integration.

In response, AT&T in a filing last week said that the antitrust regulators had yet to prove that the merger would jack up prices. In fact, the filing argued that DirecTV customers could see fees fall by at least $ 78 million annually as a result of the combination.

“The deal is closed, the government hasn’t given up yet,” Donovan said Tuesday.

Instead, AT&T is focusing its energies on other threats, such as the competition for dominance in 5G, a forthcoming cellular network that’s expected to boost online communication speed. But it’s a welcome fight.

“When you get a new battleground, that when a company gears itself up, and says: ‘This is motivating.’”

The appeal comes as the media industry quickly consolidates. Disney and Fox are awaiting approval by international regulators for their $ 71.3 billion proposed merger.

Do You Buy Duplicates Of Your Favorite Clothes?

do you buy duplicates of your favorite clothes?I thiiiink we’ve talked about this before (possibly in our discussion of shopping habits or in this long ago discussion of what clothes do you buy again and again), but it’s been ages and ages: Do you buy duplicates of your favorite clothes? This can either mean, “Hey, these pants ROCK and I am going to buy them in every color,” to “Man, it stinks that my favorite t-shirt is often in the wash, so I’ll just buy 3 more,” to “I love this dress SO MUCH and if I am ever unable to wear it I will be sad, so I’m going to buy a backup!”

For a long time this was default advice for fashiony people — if you love it, buy duplicates! But in the age of minimalism, do you think that’s still true? If you wear a work uniform or a capsule wardrobe for work, do you like this idea? On the flip side, if you’re in a style rut, do you blame too many similar purchases?

For my $ .02, I kind of do tend to buy duplicates of my favorite clothes, and I’ll admit that I sometimes regret it. Right now I think I have four each of my favorite black t-shirts from Everlane (affiliate link) and Lands’ End (which I’m now happy about since I think they stopped selling my preferred slub jersey!). I have two colors of my favorite Hue leggings and an additional one that I bought on sale (with tags still on in case). I have the exact same pair of jeans in two washes. I have multiples of the same sheath dresses. I do this with makeup too — I have the same eyeliner in multiple colors, and I just bought a backup of my favorite splurge-y lipstick because I believe it’s being discontinued. If I like something, I use some of my favorite online shopping apps to watch for sales and then strike.

How about you, readers: Do you buy duplicates of your favorite clothes? Do you buy them OFTEN or only if you see a crazy sale? Have you ever regretted buying a duplicate of something?

Do you buy duplicates of your favorite clothes for work and beyond? Do you buy duplicates because you love the fit, you worry it will sell out or be discontinued, or to simplify your shopping and work outfits? What other shopping habits do you have for your work wardrobe? Great discussion with the readers.

WATCH: Will Smith Jumps Into His 50th Birthday

LITTLE COLORADO RIVER GORGE, Ariz. (AP) — Like a scene out of a high-octane action movie that he would star in,Will Smith celebrated his 50th birthday Tuesday by successfully bungee jumping from a helicopter near the Grand Canyon.

Cameras, which captured the stunt for a livestream on YouTube , showed the actor hooked to a harness and bungee cords dangling over a gorge in northeastern Arizona.

“This is some of the most beautiful stuff I’ve ever seen in my life,” Smith said while still swinging over the chasm.

He described the experience as going “from pure terror to absolute bliss.”

The entire event had the feel of a polished episode of reality TV. Camera crews showed Smith, wife Jada Pinkett Smith and his three children being greeted by dozens of relatives and friends on a platform. His “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” co-star, Alfonso Ribeiro, served as a host interviewing Smith and others before and after.

The stunt was billed as a leap “in the heart of the Grand Canyon.” But the jump was outside Grand Canyon National Park on the Navajo Nation. The tribe’s reservation borders the east rim of the national park.

A Navajo medicine man gave Smith a blessing and thanked him for coming to the reservation.

Smith said the bungee jump was a challenge from Yes Theory, a YouTube channel that makes videos of people doing activities outside of their comfort zone. But the event also raised money for charity through an online lottery for a chance to watch the jump in person. The proceeds will benefit access to education for children in struggling countries.

6 Most Anticipated Games of October 2018

October is right around the corner, and that means it’s officially videogame season! Loads of highly anticipated titles are about to drop, and it’s going to be nearly impossible to keep up with them all. Don’t worry, though, there’s no shame in adding a few or even all of these upcoming games to your backlog for future fun.

This October will, unsurprisingly, feature a plethora of Triple-A titles. However, there will also be a couple of high-profile, smaller titles available for anyone looking for a more intimate undertaking. These are the six most anticipated games releasing in October 2018.

Mega Man 11



  • Release Date(s): October 2
  • Developer(s): Capcom
  • Platform(s): Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC
  • Genre: Action Platformer

Unless jumping through doors is a must-have feature for you, the upcoming Mega Man 11 looks like a nostalgic delight. Combining the classic Mega Man formula with the graphic affordances of modern hardware, this game is sure to offer a terrific experience for newcomers to the series and veterans alike. Also, Mega Man 11 will introduce a mainline counterpart for Blast Man — a character from the spin-off title Megaman Battle Network 6. This will be the first time the main series games have adopted a spin-off character, which should be a fun treat for fans of the surprisingly good Battle Network series of games.

The Mega Man franchise is so prominent and refined that you pretty much know exactly what you’re in for with Mega Man 11. Using the same successful formula as previous entries — 2D platforming, an impressive variety of enemies and bosses, and power-ups galore — Mega Man 11 doesn’t have to reinvent the wheel to be a great game. All it has to do is deliver on the fun and challenging gameplay the series has refined over the course of more than 30 years.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey



  • Release Date(s): October 5
  • Developer(s): Ubisoft Quebec
  • Platform(s): PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC
  • Genre: Action RPG

After the overwhelming success and critical acclaim of last year’s Assassin’s Creed Origins, do we really need another entry in the franchise to release so soon? The answer is a resounding yes. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is set to be one of the most ambitious and over-the-top entries in the series so far. Set in Ancient Greece, the game will lean into that rich mythology and have the player face off against Minotaurs, Gorgons, and a many more fantastic foes.

Early impressions of Assassin’s Creed Origins suggest that this game will lean even further into RPG elements than previous titles. For a series that felt stagnant just a few years ago when Syndicate dropped, these innovations are more than welcome. Hopefully, this title continues Origin’s momentum and delivers dozens of hours of stealth-heavy combat. Also, Socrates analyzes and critiques every single decision you make in the game, which is bound to be meme-worthy.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4



  • Release Date(s): October 12
  • Developer(s): Treyarch
  • Platform(s): PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC
  • Genre: First Person Shooter

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (stylized as Call of Duty Black Ops IIII) may have a frustrating logo, but the game itself looks like it’s going to be a ton of fun — with scores of throwbacks for longtime fans of the franchise. While the game is ditching a narrative-driven campaign, it will feature a variety of online multiplayer modes. Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and Zombies all make an expected return alongside Blackout, the new battle royale mode.

The addition of new mode implies Treyarch is trying to shake up the classic FPS series. Even so, Black Ops 4 still looks to be a by-the-numbers Call of Duty game. However, first-person multiplayer shooter fan interested in seeing Treyarch’s take on battle royale genre are sure to have a good time. With the rise of titles like Fortnite and PUBG, it feels the industry might be moving past the age of Call of Duty. Here’s hoping Black Ops 4 manages to prove that there is a place for the series in the modern gaming landscape.

The World Ends With You: Final Mix



  • Release Date: October 12
  • Developer(s): Square Enix and Jupiter
  • Platform(s): Nintendo Switch
  • Genre: Action RPG

The fantastic game The World Ends With You was unfortunately overshadowed by other titles in the Nintendo DS’ massive catalog of incredible titles. Thankfully, the Nintendo Switch is giving the game another chance to shine with an enhanced port simply titled, The World Ends with You: Final Mix. On top of a new control and display scheme to make the game a better fit for the Switch, this port will also feature a few new story beats and character interactions.

The World Ends With You is a delightfully weird game about teenagers trapped in an alternate version of Shibuya, Japan after they die. They are forced to compete in different challenges for a chance to return to the living world or transcend to a higher plane of existence. A lot is going on in The World Ends With You, and, thankfully, it’s all a stylishly good time. If you like melodramatic teenagers and innovative combat that brilliantly utilizes a touchscreen, this port will totally be worth your time.

Soulcalibur VI



  • Release Date: October 19
  • Developer(s): Project Soul
  • Platform(s): PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC
  • Genre: Fighting Game

After six long years of waiting, Soulcalibur VI will once again bless the fighting game community with its arena-style, weapons-based combat. Between the unmitigated success of Dragon Ball FighterZ and the hype surrounding Super Smash Bros Ultimate, it’s clear that fighting games are hot right now. Soulcalibur VI’s three-dimensional battles and overall goofiness set it apart from its more serious competitors.

While lots of fighting games embrace a handful of ridiculous elements — like Street Fighter’s incredibly weak Dan Hibiki or Mortal Kombat’s gory finishing moves — Soulcalibur really leans into the bizarre. The franchise has had some amazing cameo fighters, including Link, Darth Vader, and Kratos; and is set to keep the trend going with Geralt from the Witcher series. If you can look past the somewhat dated and problematic designs of some of the female fighters, Soulcalibur VI is sure to be full of fights to remember.

Red Dead Redemption 2



  • Release Date: October 26
  • Developer(s): Rockstar Studios
  • Platform(s): PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
  • Genre: Action-Adventure

Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR 2)is arguably the most anticipated game of this console generation. The original Red Dead Redemption was nothing short of a masterpiece, and its sequel looks to be everything that made the first great, and more. If RDR 2 incorporates the original game’s expansive open world, rewarding combat and missions, and fun Easter eggs; it will be a frontrunner for the best game of 2018.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is the prequel to the first game and will have players take control of the outlaw Morgan, a member of the Dutch Van der Linde gang. Comprised of character from the first game, the gang and yourself will explore the wild west and witness the adventures hinted at in the first game. While it’s not totally clear yet how the gameplay will be different from Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar’s handling of the Grand Theft Auto and Max Payne series certainly inspire confidence. Really, the only major worry is that it will be too good and addicting. We do have other games to play this fall and during the holidays.

One of the best things about beauty and makeup is the fact that there aren’t any rules. The real name of the game is creativity. You can use eyeshadow as blush or even lipstick as eyeshadow. If you can make it work AND feel good about it, by all means, do it.

Meghan Markle and her longtime beauty guru, Daniel Martin, are proponents of this multi-use philosophy. In a recent interview with E! News, the celebrity makeup master shared a valuable tip that can save you a ton of money on highlighters. If you’ve been loving the Duchess of Sussex’s natural yet gorgeous glow, then you’ll be happy to know it doesn’t actually take much to achieve. The secret is out and it’s called Aquaphor.

If you’re not yet familiar with the under-$ 5 healing balm, it’s an ointment used to treat dry, cracked and aggravated skin. “Before highlighters, you would do highlighting with Aquaphor,” Martin shared in the interview. “Aquaphor will give you that same texture, especially in a photo [when applied] on the high points of the face.” Very enlightening information, if you ask us.

That’s not all. Aquaphor packs a mean punch when it comes to its range of uses. Due to its healing properties, it can be used to prevent skin from scarring or treat mild eczema. If you’re not liking the flaky aftermath from using Retin-A, the glycerin in the ointment will help counteract it. And because of its crazy hydrating action, it makes an amazing nighttime eye cream, lip balm or eye gloss, and it’s great for removing eye makeup in a pinch. Best of all, it’s non-comedogenic, so there’s no need to worry about breakouts.

Next time you’re at the drugstore, be sure to pick up a tube or three of Aquaphor and we promise, it will be your new best friend.

Brandon Jenner and his wife Leah are divorcing.

Two weeks after the couple announced that they had decided to split after 14 “beautiful years together,” Leah filed divorce documents in Los Angeles on Tuesday, according to papers obtained by PEOPLE. She is seeking spousal support.

TMZ first reported the news.

On Sept. 10, the couple, who have known each other since high school and grew up together in Malibu, announced a joint statement announcing their decision to separate.

“Hi everybody, it is with love in our hearts that we feel it’s time to share some personal news with you all. After celebrating fourteen beautiful years together, we have lovingly come to the decision to end the romantic aspect of our relationship,” they said. “We are deeply proud of the life we’ve cultivated together and are truly grateful for the bond of friendship we hold and cherish today.

How Many Dress Shirts Does a Man Need?

Have you ever wondered how many dress shirts you must have to have a complete classic style wardrobe?

If you’re a follower of the Gentleman’s Gazette, you may have come across the guides about 10 dress shirts every man should invest in but if you’re looking into building a timeless classic man’s wardrobe, ten is just the start.

To answer the question right from the get-go, how many dress shirts do you need? The answer is it depends. Let’s break it down. Personally, I have about 60 to 70 dress shirts; sometimes I add, some sometimes I’ll retire some, but overall, that’s the number. Personally, I don’t consider it to be too much for a number of reasons.

A selection of dress shirts

A selection of dress shirts

1. Dress Shirts Are The Backbone Of My Wardrobe.

I hardly ever wear undershirts and so it’s always something that protects my jackets and my outer garments from my body fluids. With the exception of going to the gym or maybe mowing the lawn, I usually wear dress shirts or maybe a polo shirt when it’s really hot and I’m in a very casual setting. So for me, a dress shirt is truly an everyday piece of my attire.

2. Dress Shirts Come In Endless Variations.

Yes, you may have one white shirt but then there are different weaves, weights, patterns, collar shapes, cuff shapes, fits, and so it’s not difficult for me to always come up with a new shirt that’s different than any other that I’ve had so far.

3. Dress Shirts Provide Personality.

I actively try to incorporate different colors into my overall outfits. So rather than going with that white shirt, I maybe go with an off-white or a light pale yellow.

4. Dress Shirts Are An Investment.

I still have shirts in my wardrobe that are more than ten years old and I still have them in my rotation. Of course, the more shirts you have, the fewer you wear the individual ones, the longer they will overall last.

The oldest shirts I have in my wardrobe today I bought used from a gentleman who was a realtor and about to retire, he had my height and he had all of his shirts made at Siniscalchi in Milano and it’s a bespoke shirt maker that is very expensive. Shirts usually go for around five to six hundred euros and he was just handing them to me at bargain prices and they all had very cool fabrics, very unusual styles. It’s not something I would suggest you invest in when you’re just building a shirt wardrobe but it’s definitely something you can add once you have all the basics covered. If you take care of your shirts properly, they should last you a long time.

If you have shirts made for you, it may be a good idea to invest in separate collars and cuffs because that’s what usually wears out the first and so you can just exchange that and still enjoy that shirt. Now, some of the old Siniscalchi shirts I have are just starting to fray around the edges on the collar and the cuffs and since I do not have any excess fabric, I could turn them into Winchester shirts meaning I use contrasting white collars and cuffs, that way, I could still enjoy wearing the overall shirt without having to just buy an entirely new shirt.

Francesco Barberis Canonico

Francesco Barberis Canonico

The other option would be to simply wear them as they are and for example, Francesco Barberis Canonico is someone who could afford a new shirt but he deliberately chooses to wear really worn down shirts and if you take a closer look, you can always see that his shirts are heavily frayed and you can see the interlining and white sometimes popping out from underneath but just like having all the rugs in your home with signs of wear, it’s kind of a very British attitude and he just goes with it and it suits his style. I’m not saying this is something that you should practice and it requires a certain style in order to pull it off. More often than not, people would probably think of you as frumpy or not well taken care of if you have a meticulous wardrobe with fraying shirts.

5. I Like To Change My Shirt Wardrobe With The Seasons.

In the winter, I wear heavier oxfords or heavier twill shirts, sometimes they have a little flannel texture, just so I’m warmer and more comfortable. In the summer, I wear very lightweight fabrics with an open weave that help my skin to breathe and keep me cooler.

Of course, during the in-between seasons, you can wear medium weight fabrics and ultimately, you have to analyze where you live. If you live in a climate like I do where you have very hot summers and very cold winters, you need different shirts than if you live let’s say in Sri Lanka where it’s hot all year round.

Dry cleaning shirts is unnecessary

6. I Am Not A Big Fan Of Dry Cleaning Dress Shirts.

Yes, it would be easier to do so but I have very good quality dress shirts and at a dry cleaner, they usually wash them not as gently and carefully as it can be done at home. Also, they’re usually not completely hand ironed but machine ironed and all of those things help to wear down your shirt prematurely.  

How Many Shirts Should You Invest In When You’re Starting Out & You’re Interested In A Classic Wardrobe?

I would say ten is the bare minimum.

The Basics

I think every man should invest in ten dress shirts if they have somewhat of a use for dress shirts on a regular basis. If you wear shirts to the office, ten is actually the bare minimum. I suggest having more like a three or four-week rotation which means 15 or 20 dress shirts. Of course, the bigger the rotation, the longer your shirts will last.

For the most part, the first ten shirts should be mostly white, off-white, or shades of blues.  Personally, I’m a big fan of pastel-colored shirts, light greens, or lavender, or yellow, but typically that’s something you should add on top of the ten basics.

If you don’t have to wear a dress shirt to work and you don’t like wearing dress shirts, I suggest you have at least three dress shirts that you can always rely on. One is a white dress shirt, ideally with French cuffs for cufflinks without a chest pocket and it’s something that you can wear for anything from a job interview, to a funeral, to a wedding, or any kind of other formal events.

If you don’t have cufflinks or you don’t want to invest money in them, go with a single barrel cuff which is also known as a button cuff. If you want to invest in cufflinks, I would suggest you get one pair in gold and one pair in silver in a very traditional style without any diamonds or colored stones. Personally, I would choose a monkey fist knot cufflink because they’re versatile, they’re classic, and it’s something you could wear with any kind of outfit.

Checked Shirt Fabric - Ideal for Business Casual

Checked Shirts

Ideally, you get it with a button-down collar because it’s more casual and you don’t need to wear it with any form of neckwear and for that, you definitely want to have barrel cuffs or button cuffs and you can also have a chest pocket if you want.

Linen Jacket and denim shirt

Linen Jacket and denim shirt

Denim Shirts

It can really help to dress down other things, you don’t have to iron it, it’s something that is popular right now, and has been popular for the last few years. It’s soft, it’s hard wearing, and it’s something that works well in any wardrobe.  

The Sky Is The Limit For Menswear Enthusiasts

Obviously, that’s me! You can have just ten shirts that are all in white but they can have different cuff styles, collar styles, weaves, front plackets, buttons, and all those little details make the shirts different and suited for different occasions.

Butler Luxury Hanger in Whiskey

Butler Luxury Hanger in Whiskey

Of course, at this point, storage can be a challenge and basically, you can fold them and put them in drawers but I find that it takes up a lot of drawers and so I hang all of my shirts on specific shirt hangers that are not too wide so they don’t take up too much space in my wardrobe. Personally, I use the ones from Butler luxury which served me quite well.

So once you have all the basics covered, I suggest you go with pastel colors. Pastel pink, pastel lavender, green, you can have other shades that are combining those colors and just play with things. You can also add different kinds of patterns such as maybe a small houndstooth shirt, a horizontal striped shirt, or stripes in an unusual color.

Experiment With Different Shirt Details

Of course, you can also experiment with different fabrics and different weights, as well as finishes and on top of that, playing with a collar shape is probably the detail that has the biggest impact because it defines the V shapes and the triangles that lead to your face.

Play With The Different Options You Have

First of all, it’s the height of your collar, then the spread of your collar, also how long you want the collar to be in the front, as well as how much tie space you want which really depends on what kind of tie knots you tie. If you have bigger tie knots such as the Windsor, you want more tie space, otherwise, you can get away with no tie space at all. Of course, you can also have club collars or create collars for collar pins with little pin holes in them just so you have exactly the right shirt for the right occasion.

Wearing a collar pin is something you should consider if you want the classic look

Wearing a collar pin is something you should consider if you want the classic look

I also urge you to experiment with pleats in the back or if you have little grinze patterns, you can have shirts that have a higher degree of handwork, you can have shirts with different buttons, you can experiment with shirts from different shirt makers. Over time, you probably create some preferences for certain kinds of shirts for certain occasions and it’s just a joy to experiment and try new things.

If you attend evening events regularly, you also may want to invest in different kinds of evening shirts. Some could have wide pleated fronts or slim pleated fronts. You could have different kinds of Marcella inserts, you can have starched shirts, and it’s just interesting and with black tie, there’s not a whole lot variety in what you can do so changing up the shirt detail has a much bigger impact than it would on let’s say a business suit.

CONCLUSION

Overall, just like with anything else in your wardrobe, it really depends on your needs and what you want, however, once you know what you’re going for, it pays to start out with the basics that give you the most use for your purpose which means the lowest cost per wear.

In general, that means staying away from super flashy or unusual things and it means that you leave them behind even though they may be really discounted on a super sale because even if you get the shirt at 90% off, it is kind of wasted if you just wear it twice in a period of 10 years.

Aziz Ansari’s Comeback Gigs Split Opinion

FREDERIC J. BROWN

The paths of rehabilitation for comedians accused of sexual misconduct as part of the #MeToo movement are winding. But one thing is clear: They all appear to include a stop at the Comedy Cellar in New York’s Greenwich Village.

After Louis C.K., the latest performer to make an appearance on the Village’s hallowed Cellar stage is Aziz Ansari—who faced an uncertain future after an anonymous 23-year-old woman accused him of pressuring her into giving him oral sex after the two went on a date.

Ansari sort-of apologized for his behavior, while denying he had been aware of doing anything wrong.

EXCLUSIVE: Fashion Takes a Twirl at New York City Ballet

NEW YORK – Backstage at the David H. Koch Theater here last week, red devils and modernist clowns intermingled off stage right, as dancers of the New York City Ballet ran through a dress rehearsal for the company’s Fashion Gala.
The annual event — set to mark its seventh iteration on Thursday evening — assigns fashion designers and choreographers the team objective of creating a new work that’s innovative in both its movement and visual appeal.
Demonic flamenco dancers are the invention of Gareth Pugh, the London-based designer, who has created costumes for a new piece by choreographer Matthew Neenan.
Monochromatic excess was conceptualized by Giles Deacon, a mad-hatter of London’s fashion scene who currently presents his collections as part of Paris Couture week. His costume designs — a fleet of kicky Renaissance court jesters — will accompany dancers in a new work choreographed by Kyle Abraham.
Flotsam chiffon dresses by Italian designer Alberta Ferretti will also whisk across the stage — hers to join a new work by Gianna Reisen.
The NYCB will dance these new pieces one week into a fall season that began mired in controversy. Following sexual misconduct allegations by a former student, City Ballet terminated two male principal dancers and

Steal Alert: The Orient Bambino Small Seconds Champagne Dial for $160

Massdrop: Orient Bambino Small Seconds – $ 159.99 FINAL ($ 330)

NOTE: If you’re going for the champagne dial shown above, you’ll need to select model RA-AP0003S10A at checkout.

Yes, you can get some of the other colorways for less at dependable, 3rd party “gray” market dealers. But ever since its arrival here in the US, plenty of us have been drooling over that champagne dial. And it’s a hard one to find at a significant discount.

The Orient Bambino Small Seconds Champagne Dial

Massdrop has got the whole spectrum. And for now, the champagne dial is still available for a pre-order. Diameter is the Bambino standard 40.5 mm, so it should be wearable by most. Lug width is 21mm, so replacement bands might be a bit tough to find. The croc embossed leather strap it comes with feels decently flexible and soft for what it’s worth. Crystal is still noticeably domed for that retro feel. Water resistance is just 30m, but that’s not unexpected with a dress watch like this. Especially being that they threw an exhibition caseback on this one, to show off that in-house Japanese made automatic movement.

The Orient Bambino Small Seconds Champagne Dial

The star of the show has to be the smaller seconds sub-dial at six o’clock. Just a bit of texture, and positioned just so. The Orient Logo and “Automatic” script takes residence at twelve, and the only other text to the dial is a barely noticeable “mov’t Japan” and model number at the very bottom. It’s of course an in-house automatic movement, and it hacks and hand winds at the onion style crown. Comes with a 1-year manufacturer warranty.

Again, it’s the champagne dial shown in this post that’s the steal. You’ll need to select model RA-AP0003S10A at checkout. The other colors seem to be more widely available, and often for less. This one is a bit tougher to find, especially when it comes to sites & sellers that don’t look… questionable.

Big thanks to Brandon D. for the tip.

That’s all. Carry on.

A Recent Closet Edit

I edit and review my closet every month because I like to know exactly what I have in my wardrobe, how it all works together, and how I feel about the items as my style evolves. Monthly closet reviews sound excessive, but this is my line of work so I’m extra motivated, engaged and organized about what is removed and added, and why I’ve made those decisions. I also like to keep my moderate wardrobe at about 150 pieces (for a four-season climate) because that’s the magical number for my wants and needs.

For context, I keep EVERYTHING apart from outerwear and wardrobe basics in a small walk-in wardrobe that I share with hubby, Greg. I keep coats in a separate coat closet, and basics and yoga wear in a chest of drawers. I don’t separate or swap out the seasons, although I do rearrange items within the closet space so that seasonal items are easily on hand.

I typically don’t pass on many items at a time, because I edit very frequently. If I did, there would be nothing left. But my last edit was substantial because I finally let go of many items I’d been holding on to for too long. As requested, I’m sharing the items and the reasons they exited my wardrobe.

Footwear

I couldn’t bear parting with my eleven-year tan knee-high slouchy Prada boots until now because I bought them with Greg in Milan. But they’re very battered and the soles are worn through, I wore them that much. My cognac Prada boots are my most worn boots of all time. I’ve had them spruced up and fixed multiple times, and it’s time to retire the incredible workhorses. The colour-blocked wedges were bought in Tokyo six years ago, and are in pristine condition, but too high now that I wear flats almost exclusively. The seven-year Donald Pliner boots are too heavy and chunky for my current style preferences. The floral pumps are immaculate, but too high. The silver pumps and oxfords are battered, and I’m not into silver anymore. The pink sneakers are worn through.

Handbags

The first three clutches have been around for years, worn till the cows come home, and are now awfully battered. The green snakeskin clutch was a sentimental item that no longer makes me happy, so it had to go. The silver clutch is in pristine condition, but I’m over silver and focussing on gold. The old radio clutch is adorable but is too small for my gigantic phone. The gold satchel is a glorious shade of gold and in good nick, but the multiple pockets were driving me batty, making me feel utterly disorganized and messy.

Bottoms

I hung on to the very old tomato red skirt skirt for years, because it’s the most perfect shade of tomato red. For years I would try it on, but take it right it off because although it looked good and fit well, I’m so over classic pencil skirts. I don’t like the way they feel and this one looks too short. The old black flared skirt is lovely, flirty and fun, but also feels too short. It’s a pity that the red and orange pants had to go because they pilled, and the orange ones stretch out terribly. The burgundy pants also stretch out too much after a day’s wear. The red lace pants are a year old and gorgeous. But I’ve learned the hard way that I’m awfully uncomfortable in a high-rise elastic waist. It rides up my hips and causes crotch discomfort. Lesson learned.

Tops

The first very old pullovers pilled, but lasted quite a while. The purple pullover was immaculate and about ten years old. I hung on to it because the quality was sensational. But it doesn’t layer well under anything. I demoted it to at home only, but in the end the colour didn’t make me happy. The oatmeal multi-media pullover ripped. The peach pullover got scratchier and scratchier on the neckline. The floral pullover was immaculate, but too grey despite the pretty blue flowers. The old navy shirt had a great run, but had started to fade. The old navy and black pullover stretched on the neckline and didn’t look sufficiently polished anymore. And the gorgeous old navy open-weave turtleneck has sleeves that won’t stay put when they scrunch. They used to, but over the years, the sleeves have lost their elasticity.

Dresses

I passed on these dresses because I don’t want to showcase my knees anymore, not even with hosiery. Some dresses I wore over cropped straights and flares as tunics, which was fun and covered. But their time has passed too. Most of these dresses are either old or very old, apart from the burgundy dress which is from last season.

Toppers

The old blush leather jacket was worn into the ground and stained permanently on the sleeves. The twelve-year-old black satin moto was one of my most worn jackets ever. It fit and travelled like a dream, but had ripped, pilled and worn through. The old tuxedo jacket was looking shabby. The old black moto coat — although in pristine condition which is why I held on to it for years — feels too hard-edged, black and tough for my style. I tried to soften it, but now more than ever it’s wrong for the “pretty, dainty & soft” integrity I like to showcase in my outfits.

Items have been passed on in several ways. Some went to friends, some to clothing drop-off points, and many to the Seattle Dress for Success.

Going forward, there are items I want to replace like the red and orange pairs of pants, some toppers, and the knitwear. I’d love to find a pair of knee-high tan boots too. All in good time.

Children whose mothers use marijuana are more likely to try it at younger age

When mothers use marijuana during the first 12 years of their child’s life, their cannabis-using children are more likely to start at an earlier age than children of non-using mothers, according to a new study. This study is the first to establish a relationship between maternal cannabis use during a child’s lifetime and earlier initiation in a nationally-representative, longitudinal cohort.

Surf Under the Harvest Moon Tonight

A Harvest Moon is a full moon closest to the autumn equinox. Depending on your time zone, the moon will be in full force the Northern Hemisphere comes on September 22 or 23. The Southern Hemisphere’s Harvest Moon is the full moon on the night of September 24 or 25, 2018.

What is a Harvest Moon You Ask? “On average, the moon rises about 50 minutes later each day. But when a full moon happens close to an autumn equinox, the moon rises closer to the time of sunset. For mid-temperate latitudes, it rises only about 30 to 35 minutes later daily for several days before and after the full Harvest moon”. –earthsky.org

For higher northern latitudes, there is usually less time between successive moonrises.

“The difference between 50 minutes and 35 minutes might not seem like much. But it means that, in the nights after a full Harvest Moon, you’ll see the moon ascending in the east relatively soon after sunset. The moon will rise during or near twilight on these nights, making it seem as if there are several full moons – for a few nights in a row – around the time of the Harvest Moon.”

So if you’re looking to beat the crowds and log some time in the water, paddle out tonight!
