Bite the bullet train and head to Japan

Instead of lazing by the Med, Jay Rayner decided to take his family to Japan. It wasn’t an entirely selfless act … food played a major part, naturally

Getting to eat the good stuff in Tokyo can be a challenge. The problem isn’t finding the right places. The concierge team at the city’s hotels work harder than most making restaurant reservations, and ours at the Mandarin Oriental is no exception. They have sent us to a bustling, wood-lined izakaya, or food pub, down a side street in the city’s Akasaka district. Here, smoke pirouettes from the grills in the open kitchens, the beer, like the air conditioning, is beautifully chilled and the tables are crowded with locals.

The problem is that the place is so very local, so very Tokyo, that quite reasonably no one here speaks English, and we speak no Japanese apart from the good manners of “hello” and “thank you”. Or so we think. Suddenly our 18-year-old son, Eddie, is sorting the order. He can do numbers and a few other phrases, enough to get an omakase request – roughly, the chef’s choice – under way. We are served blocks of silken tofu under umami-rich tangles of dried fish, plump, gossamer-skinned gyoza and tempura-ed fritters of sweetcorn. Thanks in part to Eddie, we do eat the good stuff.

USA Gymnastics Head Kerry Perry Resigns Amid Pressure Over Sexual Abuse Scandal

Kerry Perry, who was appointed president and CEO of USA Gymnastics at the beginning of the year to guide the struggling organization through a sexual abuse scandal involving national team doctor Larry Nassar, has resigned, effective immediately.

In a letter to its members posted on its website on Tuesday morning, Karen Golz, chair of the USA Gymnastics board of directors, said: “I am writing to tell you that USA Gymnastics President and CEO Kerry Perry informed our Board of Directors last night that she will resign effective immediately. On behalf of the board, I want to thank Kerry for her leadership under very difficult circumstances.”

Perry was brought in by previous board members who were in place during the many years that Nassar is accused of sexually abusing hundreds of gymnasts and athletes, from those he saw at his offices in Michigan State University to members of national, world and Olympic teams. The athletes say they were abused both at the national training center as well as in hotel rooms during competitions. He is currently serving an up to 175 year prison sentence in Michigan for sexual abuse charges.

Perry’s ouster was made more likely after U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) CEO Sarah Hirshland questioned Perry’s response to the concerns of survivors. Hirshland said to USA Today Sports it was “time to consider making adjustments in the leadership.” USA Gymnastics, as well as the USOC, still face lawsuits by many gymnasts, including members of the 2012 and 2016 Olympic teams, for failing to protect them from Nassar.

They maintain that they reported Nassar’s abuse to USA Gymnastics well before he was fired in 2015, but that the organization failed to immediately report the abuse to law enforcement.

Although many of the board members and other people in leadership positions at USAG during Nassar’s tenure either resigned or were fired, many survivors continued to question Perry’s lack of firm leadership and reluctance to take responsibility for the scandal and USAG’s role in it. Last week, Perry appointed Mary Lee Tracy as head development coach for the women’s elite team, a decision immediately criticized by the sexual abuse survivors, including Olympian Aly Raisman, who noted that Tracy had publicly supported Nassar even after many had already come forward accusing him of sexual abuse. Three days later, Tracy said on social media that she was asked by USAG to resign after attempting to contact Raisman.

Throughout her nine-month tenure, Perry only addressed the media once about the Nassar scandal, at a press conference held during the U.S. National Championships in August. Survivors, including Kyla Ross and Madison Kocian, the latest Olympians to come forward reporting sexual abuse by Nassar, say they have not received any support or apology from Perry or the federation. USAG maintains they are not permitted to speak to the survivors who are still in litigation with the organization.

Perry did terminate USAG’s relationship with Bela and Martha Karolyi, both of whom served as the women’s elite team national coordinator. She also cancelled USAG’s previous agreement to purchase the Karolyi ranch, which had been named as the national training center by her predecessor, Steve Penny. But the decision to cancel the monthly training sessions at the ranch came after Olympian Simone Biles tweeted last January about her abuse at the facility, and her reluctance to continue training there. USAG also has a new Athlete Task Force which is supposed to provide athletes with more access to leadership at the organization, but no Nassar survivors are part of the group.

Raisman and others have been vocal about the need for a complete change at the organization. Members of the gymnastics community have taken to social media in the wake of Perry’s departure, noting that people directly involved with covering up for Nassar remain at the organization, including chief operating officer Ron Gallimore, who the Indianapolis Star reported helped to provide cover stories for why Nassar was no longer working with USAG.

USAG appointed a management committee to run the federation as it conducts a search for a new CEO.

Head Counts and Calls to Action: Major Takeaways from the Domestic Violence Census

New findings released by the National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) shed light on the profound need for an increase in funding for critical resources and services for survivors and families—and the lifesaving work that advocates perform every day.

In a report published in June, NNEDV revealed the conclusions of their 12th annual one-day count of adults and children utilizing the services of domestic violence agencies in the U.S. last September. In total, exactly 1,694 local domestic violence programs out of 1,873 programs nationwide participated in the National Census of Domestic Violence Services, as did 72,245 adults and children.

On that single day alone, 40,470 adults and children found refuge in emergency or transitional housing; 24,030 people received training on domestic violence prevention; and over 20,000 hotline callers were assisted with legal information, trauma informed counseling and safety planning.

“It is impossible to list all the ways in which domestic violence programs support survivors who arrive at their doors,” NNEDV Executive Vice President Cindy Southworth said in a statement. “Many victims leave everything behind. Shelters give them a safe place to stay and the things they need to start rebuilding their lives, from backpacks for school to clothes for job interviews.”

The study also highlights the ways that funding cuts and consistent under-resourcing of DV agencies prevents them from fulfilling their critical missions. 11,441 individual service requests were unmet the day of the census due to lack of financial resources, as were 7,416 requests for housing ,

In response, the NNEDV called for action. With the release of the census results, they are demanding that Congress pass the Help End Abusive Living Situations Act to expand access to housing and homelessness-related resources for survivors, reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act and Family Violence Prevention and Services Act and fund federal programs to address gender-based and relationship violence.

Their Lips Aren’t Sealed: The Go-Go’s Score a Queer Broadway Hit in ‘Head Over Heels’

Courtesy Joan Marcus

The Broadway pop and rock takeover—soon to bring us three versions of Cher in one musical—continues with an excellent show devoted to the back catalog of The Go-Go’s.

Not that Head Over Heels, directed with a warm, zany energy by Michael Mayer, is a conventional jukebox musical following the rise, success, splintering and later reuniting of the group itself.

Instead, in Jeff Whitty’s creation (he wrote the original book, adapted later by James Magruder), the songs of the The Go-Go’s are threaded through an Elizabethan romance based on The Arcadia by Sir Philip Sidney written near the end of the 16th century.

Author Kelly Oxford, Who Started #NotOkay, Claims Her Ex-Husband Once Threw a Phone at Her Head

Kelly Oxford is opening up about the possible reason she and ex-husband divorced.

The New York Times bestselling author, 41, claimed her ex-husband James Oxford was allegedly abusive in a series of Instagram Story photos on Monday.

The mother of three divorced from James in 2016 after 17 years of marriage. That same year, Oxford started the #notokay hashtag on Twitter after a 2005 video conversation between Donald Trump and Billy Bush emerged in which the now-president how he liked to grab women by their genitals.

Women shared their stories of sexual abuse and sexual harassment on Twitter with #notokay. Now, Oxford is now explaining her own #notokay moment, beginning with what ended her marriage with a simple caption explaining that she was writing alone.

“Some days I just put on a ton of makeup and write alone all day,” she wrote. She continued, writing, “I’ve been threatened and scared to write about the marriage I was in, but I’m over it.”

“Abuse is hard to talk about. Especially when you’re the only one who sees it. It feels like a ghost,” Oxford explained.

“Don’t marry someone who throws a phone at your head, I did and I became a terrible person,” she continued, before adding, “I’M BETTER NOW.”

James Oxford did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

The two married in 2007 and share three children together.

The screenwriter of Sausage Party has been open about being divorced and raising three children as a single parent.

In March, Oxford shared a selfie of herself on vacation while delving into her struggle with her ex-husband not being there.

“Oh hey, it’s me again. This is my first vacation with the kids and no dad and there have been waves of total depression and waves of total gratitude,” she wrote in the caption.

“Right now, I’m feeling shitty; I’m sharing because I know a lot of you are single parents and get it and don’t want to feel alone either,” Oxford continued.

“Anyhow, I just woke up, came to the beach and had a coffee alone (alone, not so shockingly, is hard after having a partner for 17 years) and wanted a cigarette, after nearly 4 months of quitting, but didn’t smoke,” she added.

The best beaches in America to head to for the summer

ADVERTISEMENT


Ahhhh, the American summer. Does it get much better than sitting in the sun with a good book to read, a cold Coca-Cola in your hands, and a view of the sea in front of you? We think not. However, those who don’t live by the sea will know just how irritating it is when people say things like that last sentence (oops, sorry). However, we think it’s about time you packed up your car, filled up your tank, and took a trip across America to check out some of the most beautiful beaches this wonderful country has to offer. We won’t take no for an answer!

Coronado Beach, San Diego – California

California is famous for its beaches, and it’s really hard to single them out because they’re just that good! However, if we had to pick, the Coronado Beach in San Diego is one of the coolest beaches in the state. With year-round sun and hot temperatures, it’s the perfect place to just go and chill on your day off. As if that wasn’t cool enough, the surf here is unlike any other beach around. So, grab your board and ride the waves – and then dry off on the sand after!

Caladesi Island State Park, Dunedin – Florida

Have you ever wanted to chill out on a private island? The Caladesi Island State Park gives you that opportunity. Visitors can access the golden sands through a shuttle ferry, or you could even walk it if you’re feeling particularly energetic that day – and the end result will truly blow you away. For a minute you’ll forget that you’re in the United States and think that you’ve been transported Down Under. However, we can confirm that you will just be in Florida! A very beautiful part of Florida.

Beachwalker Park, Kiawah Island – South Carolina

If you’re the kind of person that likes to go to the beach and get active, the Beachwalker Park in Kiawah Island will be for you. Although it’s not the kind of place you’ll want to sit and sunbathe, this beach is a haven for water sports enthusiasts and nature lovers. In fact, you might even be able to incorporate the two! Why not grab your paddle board and float atop the beautiful water while looking out for rare birds and wildlife? I mean, you don’t get much better than that.

Hapuna Beach State Park, Big Island – Hawaii

You know the screensavers that don’t look real? Well, the Hapuna Beach State Park beach is basically one of those. To look at, this beach just doesn’t look like it really exists, and you might be wondering if you’re hallucinating. Yet, we can confirm that the beautiful golden sand that is in front of you is not just a figment of your imagination. With the green backdrop, the palm trees, the crystal clear waters and the blue eyes, you will get a true taste of Hawaiian life… and we want seconds.

Coopers Beach, Southampton – New York

When you think of New York, you probably think of the Big Apple with its bright lights and bustling streets. Because of this, many people forget that New York is a whole state with little towns, villages, and beaches. One of the best beaches in New York has to be Coopers Beach in Southampton. With incredible dunes, luscious beach grass and rocking waves, this beach is the perfect haven for checking out the surf or just enjoying the sun.

Are you looking to check out what beaches America has to offer this summer? Well, look no further, because we’ve got your back!

These ‘Soulcalibur’ Warriors Are the Best Thing Since Sliced Head

Transcending history and the world — and several console generations — Soulcalibur VI will continue a tale of soul and swords that began a quarter-of-a-century ago. That said, it’s been on quite a worrying hiatus for fans like us. Soulcalibur V came out in 2012 and made the sort of massive missteps one only sees in a ring out loss.

Be that as it may, six years have passed and we figure newcomers ought to know which souls burn the brightest in the roster. Most of the fighters in this list have been confirmed as returning and any absentees here had best be shoehorned in come launch time, lest the legend of this franchise die an untimely death.


Mitsurugi samurai
Mistrugui fighting in the an ancient Greek-inspired stage. SoulCalibur VI is shaping up to be one of the best looking fighting games ever made.

1. Heishiro Mitsurugi – Token Samurai Guy

Every fighting game needs a stoic Japanese guy — an embodiment of bushido with a bigger headband fetish than Daniel LaRusso (if possible). Street Fighter has Ryu, Virtua Fighter boasts Akira Yuki and Tekken has three generations of crazy-eyebrowed Mishimas. Mitsurugi is the Souls series answer to this archetype and he’s been present and accounted for since 1995’s Soul Edge.

What’s his deal? Mitsy looks a little geriatric in his recent Soulcalibur VI incarnation and is still very much designed to be an approachable all-rounder. Pro players bemoan his predictable, scrub-friendly toolset but the fact is he’s quite lethal at any range in the right hands.

Much like Haohmaru from the Samurai Shodown series, Mitsurugi is meant to resemble legendary swordsman Miyamoto Musashi. You could also argue that his tragic peasant-rags-to-ronin-riches backstory mirrors Kikuchiyo from The Seven Samurai.

Mitsurugi’s hobbies include collecting every sword in the world (except the actual franchise MacGuffin) and almost never putting on a shirt properly. He’s a “one sleeve and leave it” kind of guy.


Taki charges her sword up with electricity. It's an OH&amp;S nightmare.

2. Taki – Demon Huntress of Spandex

Another OG fighter who hails all the way back to this series’ inception, Taki is the kunoichi who loves a good spray-on onesie. The only thing she dislikes more than evil is the comfort and support of common sense chest protection.

What’s her deal? Don’t let the diminutive kodachi blades lull you into a false sense of security. What Taki lacks in steel length she more than makes up for with acrobatic prowess and hyper-mobility. She’s basically Yoda on red cordial. Keep her well at range or you’ll get a bunch of new speed-holes installed.

Apparently Taki’s chosen name wasn’t the devs throwing shade on her fashion sense by making a play on the word “tacky”. It actually means “much rejoicing,” though fans who played Soulcalibur V didn’t rejoice very much when they found her replaced by Natsu, a younger protégé. Thankfully, Project Soul has seen sense and Taki will be back again in Soulcalibur VI.


Talim looks to camera. The single tear she's about to shed for being cut out of the series has yet to be rendered.

3. Talim – Jettisoned Fan Fave

This tonfa-wielding wind-priestess is a weird one. She’s insanely popular with the fanbase but, strangely, we almost never got paired against her in Soulcalibur IV‘s online mode. Something extra weird about Talim: she had no copycat successor, nor a roster spot, in Soulcalibur V. She was just there one day and gone (possibly with the wind) the next.

What’s her deal? The ill-advised idea to bring two nightsticks to a sword fight means Talim isn’t your heavy-hitter of the piece. She’s based around cunning evasion and speedy, pressure-oriented combos that are designed to wrong-foot her opponents.

Though Talim was considered to be Filipina on her debut, she never actually had any realistic features of that racial background. Oddly, fans were quick to demand Project Soul fix her skin tone in Soulcalibur III and yet nobody raised a single eyebrow at her ability to weaponise wind, presumably via chronic flatulence.


A problem has come along and Ivy has decided to whip it. She's whipped it good.

4. Isabella ‘Ivy’ Valentine – Whips it Good

Say “hello” – or murmur another, shorter safe-word – to Ivy, a buxom snake sword exponent who’s been brawling since 1999’s Soulcalibur. She started out life as the illegitimate daughter of franchise antagonist and undead pirate Cervantes de Leon. The apple didn’t fall far from the tree here: Ivy has the evil gene and though she’s no buccaneer she’s arrr-rated in other ways. (Sorry.)

What is the dominatrix? Essentially, Ivy is a zoner who has been equipped with the longest reach weapon in Soulcalibur (a snake sword can shift from a broadsword into a chain whip form). She’s difficult to master, too — her command throws are so tricky to pull off they’ve had Xbox achievements tied to them in the past. So best of luck with that.

Ivy’s been used extensively in promotional material for the series and over the years certain parts of her design were stripped back whilst other facets saw enhancement. That’s about as diplomatic as we can get on this topic, to be honest. Lastly, if you’re wondering why she’s so spry and gravity-resistant at age 50, the answer is: immortality siphoned from a very bad sword. That, or good genetics and Maybelline. One of the two.


Kilik is praying before a match. Praying to rod.

5. Kilik – In Rod He Trusts

Speak softly and carry a big stick: that’s the motto of Kilik. He’s basically the head of staff in the Soulcalibur series — a drubber of faces who twirls a very mean broom handle. Also, this palindromic warrior monk has had a Jedi-padawan relationship with Edge Master (a jack-of-all-styles fighter) over the years.

Why should you put your faith in rod? If you like to keep people frustrated and at distance you should select Kilik (or seek counselling — that’s really unhealthy behaviour). Mind you, this is OG Kilik I’m talking about. Strangely, Project Soul made him a filthy “mimic” character in Soulcalibur V, a random fighting-style copycat with no unique form of his own.

Beyond that cardinal sin of character design, there haven’t been a ton of changes to Kilik over the years. The holy mirror of Dvapara-Yuga (read: the mystical item that keeps him from turning evil) has been shrunk from a bandolier down to a stylish necklace, so that’s nice, functional fashion.

The best recent change is that in Soulcalibur VI he’s no longer a style-less parrot. Kilik is back to sticking with what he knows best (which would be…sticking).


A promo shot advertising the fact that Mitsurugi and Geralt will face off. Oddly, they're not actually facing one another.

Honourable Mentions – Crossover Craziness

Before we tie this off, let’s not discount the power of novelty-factor here. Over the years the Soul franchise has had some cracking one-time visitors, like Spawn, Link, Kratos, Apprentice (Starkiller), Heihachi Mishima, Devil Jin, Darth Vader, Ezio Auditore, and Yoda.

Soulcalibur VI will be no exception. Be sure to get your preorder in to play as the White Wolf himself, Geralt of Rivia. And if you’re listening, Project Souls, we’ll pay good money for a themed stage that has Roach the horse bugged out on the roof of a nearby village hut. Universe authentic.

Kaiser Permanente Hosts Community Workday at Koko Head Elementary School

HONOLULU —  School faculty and volunteers from Kaiser Permanente Hawaii gathered for a community workday at Koko Head Elementary School today to help beautify the campus. This marks Kaiser Permanente’s third community workday of 2018, part of an ongoing initiative to support healthy learning environments for keiki by restoring and beautifying school campuses.

Volunteers completed general maintenance in the school parking lot, including restriping parking stall lines. Kaiser Permanente provided monetary support for the project and lunch for volunteers.

“We’re grateful to our employees and school volunteers for joining us today to help beautify Koko Head Elementary,” said David Underriner, president of Kaiser Permanente Hawaii. “Our commitment to community service includes volunteering our time and efforts toward creating a healthier and more productive learning environment for keiki.”

Kaiser Permanente Hawaii has partnered with Hawaii 3R’s, an organization founded by the late U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye, to identify and complete impactful projects at schools across the state. Hawaii 3R’s provided a grant for $ 3,000 for the beautification project.

“Our work today helps brighten and restore our parking lot for faculty and parent use,” said Koko Head Elementary School Principal Jeffrey Shitaoka. “Partnering with Kaiser Permanente and 3R’s helps amplify our own efforts to beautify our campus for the benefit of the community.”

 

About Hawaii 3R’s
In 2001, the late U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye began a new initiative called Hawaii 3R’s (Repair, Remodel and Restore Hawaii’s public schools) whose mission is to bring outside financial and human resources together to tackle the approximately $ 640 million repair and maintenance backlog in Hawaii’s public schools.  Hawaii 3R’s works with state agencies, trade unions, businesses, military, community leaders, parents, teachers and students to match public and private funds with volunteers (“sweat equity”) to reduce the backlog.

Grande and Davidson, 24, have decided to take the next step in their relationship after just a few weeks of dating. However, they plan on having a long engagement.

“They are a perfect it. They are not rushing to get married.  Their friends are really excited and supportive,” one source told Us. “They are both constantly making each other laugh. Their moms have met. They’ve been very public with their relationship on social media and they are in very in love.”

A second insider adds that the couple told partygoers at Robert Pattinson’s birthday bash over the weekend that they are engaged.

Grande hosted and performed on SNL in March 2016. She recently split with Mac Miller after two years of dating. Davidson, meanwhile, was last linked to Larry David’s daughter Cazzie David.

“We’ll also be exploring themes around scaling business globally, social entrepreneurship, and manufacturing in the shared economy. Ultimately, we want to open the access to entrepreneurs in both Chinese and American markets, where traditionally it’s been a challenge,” Brashears says.

Another goal of the U.S.-China Youth Forum is to promote the importance of inclusivity in innovation—”through racial, ethnic, and geographical diversity, women’s empowerment, and socio-economic heterogeneity.”

Other goals include sharing insights and investment opportunities, and accessing Chinese and American markets.

Patton Oswalt Fell ‘Head Over Heels’ for Bride Meredith Salenger Months Before Meeting in Person

Patton Oswalt is still basking in that newlywed glow.

The actor, 48, gushed about his new bride, Meredith Salenger, during Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, which marked his first appearance since tying the knot with his second wife. He even wore his wedding suit for the late-night program!

“I married Meredith Salenger this amazing actress and she and our wedding planner, it was like watching two people plan a bank heist,” Oswalt recalled of the planning process. “Being the groom is the best. You are a prop that eats appetizers. That’s all you are. You’re just there and they tell you where to go.”

The couple said their “I dos” in front of family and friends at the Jim Henson Studios in Los Angeles on Nov. 4, a little over a year after Oswalt’s wife Michelle McNamara died unexpectedly in her sleep in April 2016. The couple have an 8-year-old daughter Alice.

Oswalt and Salenger announced their engagement in July.

RELATED GALLERY: Inside Patton Oswalt and Meredith Salenger’s Star-Studded Wedding

“ met online. We met through mutual friend Martha Plimpton and she threw a dinner party and she invited both of us but we never met – I couldn’t go because of some travel,” Oswalt recalled of how he missed out on being introduced to his future wife.

“And Meredith messages me the next day and says ‘You missed some amazing lasagna last night dude.’ That was on Feb. 28. We started talking, we didn’t meet face to face until May 20,” the father of one explained.

“It was very Victorian-like, exchanging letters kind of romance. Every night we would write about life, politics, books, it was all this deep stuff you do after the date. By the time we met on our first date I was so head over heels,” he added.

Following the nuptials, Salenger, 47, told PEOPLE exclusively how she strongly believed it was McNamara who orchestrated the meeting from above.

“When I first starting talking with Patton on Facebook, it was just sort of witty banter. There was nothing to it, but as I started getting to know him better, I looked up Michelle on Facebook and I saw that we had like 15 mutual friends,” she said.

“One of them was my best friend since 7th grade. I called her and was like, ‘Tell me about Michelle.’ She was best friends with Michelle after college. She was like, ‘I loved her. She’s amazing. She’s so funny and smart,’ ” Salenger recalled.

Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. (ET) on ABC.

Ex-BET Exec Kay Madati Appointed as Twitter’s Head of Content Partnerships

Kay Madati

Former BET executive Kay Madati tweeted Tuesday that he is leaving the TV network and joining Twitter as the company’s new head of Content Partnerships.


In his new role, Madati will be responsible for leading outreach efforts to media companies to increase sales and marketing opportunities, reports Variety. He will also run Twitter Amplify, a video advertising product that allows broadcasters to tweet real-time video clips accompanied by advertisements. Twitter, which has struggled in recent years to recruit investors, implemented Amplify in 2013 as an advertising tool to generate revenue.

Madati will be taking over for Ross Hoffman, who left the social network company in May after seven years. His role, however, will be much broader than the position held by Hoffman.

 

Kay Madati (Image: Twitter/Kay Madati)

 

Back in 2014, then-President Barack Obama appointed Madati to the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability for Young Americans. That same year, he was hired as the executive vice president and chief digital officer at BET Networks. While there, he was responsible for overseeing BET Digital, the interactive arm of BET Networks that includes BET.com and BET Mobile. He also managed teams responsible for all aspects of digital, social, and mobile strategy.

Prior to his stint at BET, Madati served as the head of Entertainment & Media at Facebook, where he was charged with facilitating ad-sales and monetization strategies.

Earlier in his career, the business leader worked as the VP of audience experience at CNN Worldwide and helped CNN integrate social media into its daily programming. Madati also has held marketing and operations roles at Octagon Worldwide and BMW of North America.

Madati received his undergraduate degree from Georgetown University and serves on the advisory board of the W. E. B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research at Harvard University.

According to his Twitter profile, he currently resides in Los Angeles.

Gift Ideas to Give New Grads a Financial Head Start

financial head start

Graduation season is just a few short months away, with only a semester to go for most seniors. Give your new grad a financial head start. Instead of a trip or a car, consider graduation gift ideas that will start your new grad off with the right attitude about managing their money. Here are some suggestions:

 

Give gift subscriptions to business and financial magazines

 

Gift subscriptions to business and financial magazines will teach new grads about handling money, fan the flames of entrepreneurial thinking, and inspire them with career and business role models and strategies. Of course, I recommend that at least one of those subscriptions be Black Enterprise, which can be delivered as a printed magazine or digitally to a computer or mobile device. Best of all, this is a gift that will not bust your budget; you can easily get multiyear subscriptions to several magazines for under $ 100.

 

Make a dent in their debt 

 

If you’re really serious about giving your new grad a financial head start, how about offering to make a lump sum payment on her college loan?

Another option: give her a clean slate by offering to wipe out her credit card debt, along with scheduling meetings with a credit counselor so she can learn how to keep that slate clean. Make any loan payments conditional upon her attending these meetings. You can find free or low-cost certified credit counseling services in your area with the help of the National Foundation for Credit Counseling at DebtAdvice.org.

 

Give books about money, investing, entrepreneurship and wealth

 

Great money books to start with include The One-Week Budget by Tiffany “The Budgetnista” Aliche and The Wealth Choice: Success Secrets of Black Millionaires by Dr. Dennis Kimbro.

Encourage new grads to commit to their own financial literacy by reading at least one book about money a month. Helping them to make a habit of ongoing self-education about money will not only provide a financial head start, it will keep them ahead of the game.

 

Pay for an initial consultation with a certified financial planner 

 

A consultation with a financial planner is a great gift that will introduce the importance of seeking qualified professionals to help achieve financial and life goals in adulthood. This is especially helpful to those starting new jobs after graduation, and who need help understanding job benefits and why it’s so important to start saving for retirement now, not later.

The point is to help young people get off on the right path with their finances. Giving them a financial head start could be the most valuable graduation gift they get, one that will continue to pay dividends for years to come.

Strange, Moore head for runoff in Alabama GOP primary to fill Sessions’ Senate seat

Strange was appointed to the Senate seat in February by the state’s then governor. He was unable to escape a runoff despite being buoyed by an endorsement by President Donald Trump.

Moore harnessed his support among evangelical voters to secure a spot in the runoff. A judicial discipline panel twice removed Moore from his duties as chief justice.

The runoff winner will face the Democratic nominee in a Dec. 12 election.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Head to Africa — Where William Proposed to Kate!

And a very happy birthday to you, Meghan Markle!

The Suits actress was spotted with her boyfriend of nearly a year, Prince Harry, heading off to Africa for a safari vacation on her 36th birthday, according to The Sun.

Wearing matching baseball caps and with their arms around one another, Harry and Markle walked across the airport tarmac carrying their bags and big smiles on their faces. Markle also carried what looks to be a framed photo covered in bubble wrap.

“Harry has been planning this holiday for a long time,” a source told The Sun, who obtained the photos, of the birthday getaway. “He’s made the trip incredibly romantic. They’ll go on boats across the lake, walk in the bush at dawn and camp under the stars.”

The destination is sure to raise some questions — after all, Africa is where Prince William took the then-Kate Middleton to pop the question seven years ago.

“Who knows what will happen when they’re watching a sensational African sunset together?” the source said. “Maybe he’ll get down on one knee. Harry regards Africa as his spiritual home and has often talked of how he can get away from it all there.”

Harry has often spoken about his love for Africa, calling it the place where “I feel more like myself than anywhere in the world.”

“Obviously he wants to show Meghan what an amazing place it is and create new memories together,” the source told The Sun. “Harry’s done a lot of conservation work in Africa with endangered el­e­phants and black rhinos and he’ll show them to the woman he wants to marry.”

Man Is Left Dangling For 30 Mins When Bungee Jump Malfunctions: ‘My Head Was Filled with Blood’

A 19-year-old California man was suspended almost 30 feet in the air for about half-an-hour when a bungee jump malfunctioned at a local fair.

“I said a prayer. I told myself, ‘God, I’m not going to die here,’” Roger Rodriguez, of Oxnard, California, told CBS-LA about his mid-air fright.

Rodriguez was left dangling after bungee jumping at the Ventura Country Fair on the evening of August 2. Fire officials told the Ventura County Star that a mechanical failure kept ride operators from being able to pull Rodriguez up or to lower him to the ground. He hung there for at least 20 minutes until rescue crews arrived.

“I was on the verge of passing out; my head was filled with blood, my veins were popping out of my body,” Rodriguez told KTLA. “I remember telling them to hurry up, using the last strength I had in my body, telling them to hurry up.”

 

The Ventura Fire Department used a ladder to reach Rodriguez and bring him back to safety.

“When I was upside down looking at the ladder it was such an unreal moment for me because that’s when I realized, ‘Oh, finally, I’m saved,’” Rodriguez said.

The moment when firefighters arrive on the scene was captured on a Facebook Live video by Mariah Barnes-Jones, and the footage has since been viewed more than 46,000 times. The video shows Rodriguez dangling in the air as spectators look on, and when rescue crews finally raise a ladder to him, the crowd erupts with cheers.

Rodriguez was taken to a nearby hospital after his rescue and he was released with no trauma, he said — except for a bit of a headache.

According to the Ventura County Star, officials with the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health closed the attraction and are currently looking into what went wrong. They are not sure when the bungee jump would reopen.

There were two other people who were stuck due to the mechanical failure: the attraction’s operator, and Rodriguez’s friend, Eddie Rodriguez, who were both left in the bungee cage that Rodriguez leaped from. They made it to the ground by rappeling down a rope.

Rodriguez said he was refunded the $ 40 he paid for the attraction, and the price of his admission ticket to the fair. The experience isn’t stopping him from being adventurous, though, and he is planning a parasailing trip soon, according to KTLA. But he says that the bungee experience has reminded him to value his health and well-being.

“I learned to appreciate your life because you never know what horrible accident you could be in,” he said. “It doesn’t matter if you’re at the fair, or a car, or who you’re with, where you are; just to appreciate life and respect those who are in a really bad situation like that.”

Kaiser Permanente Emergency Department Intervention for Adult Head Trauma Reduces CT Use

PASADENA, Calif. — Implementing a decision support tool for the use of computed tomography for adult head injuries resulted in reduced CT use and allowed for better identification of injuries, according to a new Kaiser Permanente study published today in the Annals of Emergency Medicine.

This study examined the use of the Canadian CT Head Rule (known as CCHR) in U.S. emergency departments. CCHR was developed to help physicians determine which minor head injury patients needed head CT imaging. According to the study’s authors, this tool has the potential to be replicated in other health systems.

“Our aim with this study was twofold: to decrease unnecessary CT scans that may harm patients and increase costs, while ensuring patients receive the highest quality, recommended care,” said lead author and emergency department physician Adam L. Sharp, MD, MS, Kaiser Permanente Southern California Department of Research & Evaluation. “This effort also demonstrates the feasibility and positive impact the implementation of a clinical decision rule has on CT use in community emergency departments.”

The intervention included clinical leadership endorsement of CCHR; physician education through an e-learning module; and a clinical decision support tool embedded into the electronic health record, which prompted emergency department physicians to avoid CT imaging based on the CCHR recommendations.

The study included 43,053 adult trauma patients from January 2014 to December 2015 in 13 Kaiser Permanente community emergency departments in Southern California. Patients had a mean age of 59, were 53.6 percent female and racially diverse. Overall, 14,018 (31.1 percent) of all adult trauma patients received a head CT. Researchers noted a 5.3 percent reduction in CT use and an increase in CT-identified injuries. Nearly all (12 of 13) of the emergency departments reduced head CT following the implementation of the intervention.

This analysis reflects real-world examination of a simple intervention that many emergency departments should be able to replicate. It also adds to previous Kaiser Permanente research published earlier this year by Dr. Sharp, which found approximately 33 percent of CT scans performed for head injury could be avoided.

Additional study authors include: Brian Z. Huang, MPH, Tania Tang, PhD, MPH, Ernest Shen, PhD, and senior author Michael K. Gould, MD, MS, all with the Kaiser Permanente Department of Research & Evaluation; Michael H. Kanter, MD, regional medical director of Quality and Clinical Analysis at Kaiser Permanente in Southern California; and Edward R. Melnick, MD, MHS, and Arjun K. Venkatesh, MD, MPH, from the Department of Emergency Medicine, Yale University.

This study was supported by Kaiser Permanente Southern California’s Care Improvement Research Team internal funds, which support operational research to improve patient care.

Bachelor in Paradise’s Jade and Tanner Tolbert Head to Hawaii for Tropical ‘Babymoon’ Ahead of Daughter’s Arrival

Jade (Roper) Tolbert and Tanner Tolbert are celebrating the upcoming arrival of their little one with a trip to paradise!

On Wednesday, Jade took to Instagram to share that she and her hubby will be heading to the tropical island of Maui on Thursday.

“The hubs already posted this today, but it’s a pretty darn cute pic, so I’m reposting anyway,” Jade posted on Instagram. “This wasn’t during our babymoon like some were asking… we actually leave tomorrow for Maui for our “babymoon” vacation! I’m so excited, I’ve never been to Hawaii! Any recommendations of things to do or places to see that are preggo mama friendly?  #matchingoutfits #babymoon.”

The Bachelor in Paradise duo, who tied the knot in a televised ceremony that aired on Valentine’s Day last year, revealed that they had been talking about starting a family from the get go.

“Two days after my missed period, I took the test,” Jade previously told PEOPLE. “I just knew it. Tanner wanted to be there. He was like, ‘Don’t take it without me.’ One morning we woke up and I took the test and we watched it on the counter and it turned from not pregnant to pregnant. I knew it, but it was like, ‘Holy cow, it’s happening.’ ”

The couple announced their pregnancy in March with a series of adorable photos.

“We’re crazy grateful to finally announce a little secret we’ve been keeping,” Jade revealed via Twitter. “We’re absolutely head over heels in love already!”

In May, the couple announced exclusively with PEOPLE that they will be expecting a baby girl in September.

“I’m hoping for a boy,” Tanner, 30, said before finding out the sex. “Not that I don’t want a girl, I actually want one of each. It’s just, I’m going to make her keep trying until we have a boy, so I’d like to get it out of the way sooner.”

“He thinks I’m going to have four children if the first three are girls, but I think he’s wrong on that,” added Jade.

What This Mom Wanted To Teach Her Son By Shaving Her Head

Virginia Mellen’s method of teaching her son an important life lesson is a bit unconventional, but also empowering.

On Sunday, Mellen posted in the Facebook group Pantsuit Nation about how she first shaved her head in high school and then a few times in college. The look made her feel “comfortable, confident, and attractive.” Yet when the desire to shave her head crept up recently, the 27-year-old mom at first hesitated. Questions like, “Is this OK to do now that I’m a mom?” and “What will people think now that I’m older?” floated through her head. But then she thought about her 15-month-old son, Avi. 

“I want my son to grow up with a mom who doesn’t make decisions about her appearance based on what other people think,” she wrote. “I want him to know that there is no particular way a mom or a woman is ‘supposed’ to look.”

Despite any hesitations, Mellen had her head shaved on March 11 and posted about the experience in the Pantsuit Nation group. She told The Huffington Post her son is too young to comment on her look, but he does enjoy feeling her hair with his hands and rubbing his cheeks on it. 

“I think he enjoys the velvety feel of the short hair,” Mellen said.

Many other parents are into Mellen’s look, too. She told HuffPost that since she shared her post, which has gotten more than 47,000 reactions as of Wednesday, she has received photos from moms showing off their shaved heads and dyed hair. 

“I love seeing everyone celebrate their individuality,” she said. “I have been surprised at the number of women who have said they wish they could shave their heads but they are ‘too old’ or ‘don’t have the face for it.’ But I urge them to go for it!”

When asked whether she had advice for other moms who might avoid doing something they want to do simply because they are mothers, Mellen suggested they “take a step back.”

“Ask if you have doubts because of what other people may think,” she said. “I am still a fairly new mom, but the most important knowledge I have gained so far is that there is no right way to be a mom. There is such enormous pressure on mothers to be a certain way, but I think even young kids can benefit from seeing our individuality.”

Nit Happens! Mom of 6 vs. Head Lice

Seriously? A family with six kids gets sent plague #3?! There must be an error somewhere.

“Dear God, I would like to apply for the (#9) darkness or the (#2) frogs or (#8) locusts instead. Thank you.”

Already, I’ve doused my kids’ heads with tea tree and lavender essential oil, Campho-Phenique, Listerine and Cetaphyl cleanser. These treatments are old wives’ tales (OK, one gal was in her early 30’s) and they didn’t work for me, but my children now smell delightful.

On three successive nights, I wrapped their scalps in mayonnaise, then olive oil, and finally vinegar in the hopes of smothering the lice intruders. On the fourth night, I just tossed up a Caesar salad instead.*

Here are my 11 astute lice observations after dealing with this trauma for far too long:

1. Lice are never ready for their close-up. Whatever you do, NEVER look at a picture on the Internet of a single louse under a microscope. You will either shave your child’s head or send her to boarding school for six months so THEY can deal with these monstrous, grotesque gargantuan inhabitants.

2. The machinery is intense. There is something called a LouseBuster which will make you look twice, thinking it says, “SpouseBuster.” It doesn’t, but it should.

2015-05-21-1432175990-4908138-FullSizeRender4.jpg

3. There are professionals in the field. There are people who get rid of lice for a price. I amused myself thinking up names for their businesses while I waited for them to go through every strand of my children’s hair with a “Nit-onator” comb. The salon was simply called, “The Nit-Picker.” How dull. How about “The Lice Whisperer,” or “Sugar & Spice & Everything Lice,” or “Tip of the Liceberg,” or “Once bitten, Lice Shy,” or “Breaking the Lice,” or “At Nit’s End,” or “Nit’s a Small World After All,” or “Playing Nit By Ear,” or “A No-Win Nituation,” or “Laying Nit On The Line,” or “Like Nit or Lump Nit,” or “I wouldn’t touch Nit with a Ten-Foot Pole,” or “Get Over Nit,” and my personal favorite, “When The Nit Hits The Fan.” Who needs to write for The Huffington Post? I’ll just sit around and name parasitic petulance companies all day long.

4. They have enviable longevity. Because live lice and nits cannot live without their host scalp for longer than 48 hours, you don’t have to clean your home, you just need to starve it of humans. Move to a new residence!

5. It leads to The Blame Game. Stay in offensive mode when you report this experience (and you really should!) to the parents of your kid’s friends. Insist that it’s their unkempt child who gave it to your precious tot in the first place. Don’t back down on this one, trust me.

6. They make you a temporary neat freak. You will never clean your house as thoroughly as you will after a lice infestation. And by “you,” I mean your spouse.

7. Facts are key. They can hold their teeny tiny little breaths for up to 8 hours. So if the plan is to jump in a chlorinated pool, you’ll need scuba gear. Also, they cannot jump or fly. That leaves me stumped as to how they get on the body part that is the furthest away from the ground. (Kidding aside, these facts and more than you ever wanted to know about lice can be found here.)

8. They induce paranoia. If you go to your child’s pediatrician for the initial diagnosis (because you’re confused about identifying a nit from a piece of dandruff) and the Dr. suddenly says, “Oh wow, her scalp is just teeming with them. Come closer, Mom — let me educate you on what they look like,” and you run from the examination room screaming, “Teeming? Teaming?! Who SAYS that?” Expect the physician to make notes in your child’s file about their mother’s stability.

9. They bestow an aura of mystery. If you want to capture someone’s attention, walk into Target and ask the clerk, “On what aisle would I find products to kill…” then whisper the rest in her ear. Ten people will follow you around the store.

10. They stir controversy. If you keep your child home from school, the head lice have won! Seriously, just write a post saying you sent your kid to school with a full-blown, active case of lice. Save this blog for April Fool’s Day.

11. They elicit drama. When the lice problem finally goes away (and it will!) you will be reduced to your best Scarlett O’hara impersonation, dropping to your knees on old shag carpet, holding up the empty casing of a nit while shouting to the heavens, “As God as my witness, I’ll never be itchy again!”

And now, since my home is so clean you can eat off the floor, I’m issuing a formal invitation for you to come for dinner tonight. Just don’t show up empty-handed. That’s a pest-peeve of mine.

Japanese Shipping Company Advertises With … Giant Pettable Cat Head??

A Japanese shipping company is doing some strange things to convince consumers it’s the cat’s meow.

On Tuesday, Kuroneko Yamato — or Black Cat Yamato — installed a a giant billboard that is nothing but a humongous cat’s face at Tokyo’s Shibuya Station, according to Kotaku.com

The giant black cat face features plush, pettable fur, a nose with actual nostril holes big enough to fit a human han, and giant eyes that stare right through you, WTFark reports.

Although the billboard is attracting lots of selfies, it will be a while before w know if it increases business.

Kuroneko Yamato is no stranger to bizarre branding techniques.

Last July, Kuroneko Yamato started making employees wear pawprint gloves as a way to advertise that any parcels delivered by the company would be handled as delicately as a mother cat handles its own child, RocketNews24.com reports.

‘Two Butterflies on my Head..’ is a metaphor (U. Moser) tocharacterize art and science, the clinical and scientificaspects of psychoanalytic work, themain subject of thisbook. International authors (from Switzerland, FRG, USAandSweden) have tried to open new perspectives to overcome the’theory-crisis in psychoanalysis’. They particularly focuson the interdisciplinary dialogue between psychoanalysts andsocial scientists, infant researchers, empiricalpsychologists, cognitive scientists, neuroscientists andpsychotherapy researchers and illustrate some of thetheoretical, clinical and scientific results of such anapproach.
