Scott Disick and Sofia Richie Break Up: He ‘Thinks She Might Change Her Mind,’ Says Source

Scott Disick and Sofia Richie are over, PEOPLE confirms.

According to a source, Richie, 19, ended the relationship with Disick, 35.

“Sofia broke up with Scott,” the insider tells PEOPLE, adding that Disick’s “old issues” contributed to the split.

“When Scott drinks, he is a sloppy mess and fools around,” the source says.

As for how Disick is dealing with the break up, “Scott seems fine,” the insider tells PEOPLE. “He even thinks she might change her mind. He isn’t really taking it seriously.”

The news comes amid heightened speculation about their relationship status after Disick was spotted looking flirty with a mystery woman at Kanye West‘s Ye listening party in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, on Thursday night. Disick reportedly told guests that he and Richie were no longer together, according to TMZ.

Richie and Disick — who shares three kids with ex Kourtney Kardashian — first sparked romance speculation in May after they were pictured cuddling up aboard a yacht in the south of France during the Cannes Film Festival. At the time, Richie — who previously dated Justin Bieber — adamantly denied anything romantic was going on, tweeting that the two were “just homies.”

Months later, the two had become “inseparable,” a source told PEOPLE in mid-September. They confirmed their romance shortly afterwards with friends in Miami, capping off the trip with a few PDA-packed days in Mexico.

In the months that followed, the couple spent much of their time traveling together, enjoying a romantic Italian getaway and another trip to Mexico. They also spent time together stateside and were regularly spotted in Los Angeles and New York City.

While a source previously told PEOPLE that Richie’s famous father Lionel wasn’t too pleased about the relationship — “Lionel knows Scott’s playboy ways, and he doesn’t want to see his daughter get hurt,” the insider said — the model had insisted that her dad was on board.

“He’s good — he’s been very nice,” she told E! News at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation Patron of the Artists Awards in Beverly Hills in November.

“He’s been very cool,”  she added. “He’s very supportive, whatever that means,” she added as Lionel, 68, jokingly pointed a gun-shaped hand gesture at his head.

“I am into her business, and she’s trying to keep me out of her business,” he said.

Throughout their relationship, Disick and Richie’s went through ups and downs. A source told PEOPLE in early November that it was “starting to fizzle.”

“They’re starting to argue more, and it’s bothering Sofia,” said the source. “She thought he would be more serious about their relationship and is finding herself to be more frustrated with him as time goes on. Everything everyone has been telling her to look out for, she’s now starting to see for herself. It’s really upsetting for her, but she is trying to work through it.”

But just weeks later, another source told PEOPLE the two were “very serious” and that Richie has been a positive influence on Disick, who is known for his late nights out and has openly struggled with alcohol abuse.

“She’s been great for him,” the source said. “She’s made a big impact on his life and hasn’t partied at all since they met.”

“His friends adore her and nobody notices the age difference,” added the source. “She is very mature, she grew up in Hollywood and has always been in older situations. They seem really happy.”

Gucci and Chime For Change Partner With Beyoncé and UNICEF for Charity Project

MILAN — On the occasion of World Water Day, Gucci and Chime for Change — the brand’s global campaign for gender equality — on Thursday unveiled a partnership with Beyoncé and Unicef USA to bring clean, safe water to Burundi.
Gucci committed $ 1 million to Beyoncé’s multi-year BeyGood4Burundi initiative launched last year with Unicef USA to support programs improving water, sanitation and basic hygiene practices in the hardest-to-reach areas of the African country, where nearly half the population has no access to safe water.
Gucci’s investment will help support the construction of 80 wells, providing access to clean water to more than 120,000 women, girls and their families. The wells will be in addition to the 35 already completed by the BeyGood4Burundi initiative, which is set to support 366,000 women and children by 2020.
“Gucci and Chime For Change are proud to stand with Beyoncé and Unicef to help change the lives of hundreds of thousands of girls and women in Burundi,” said Gucci’s president and chief executive officer Marco Bizzarri in a statement. “Through our commitment to BeyGood4Burundi, we continue the mission of Chime For Change to provide education, health and justice to girls and women globally.”

H&M Names Five Winners of Global Change Award

PARIS — Hennes & Mauritz AB named the five winners of its Global Change Award, and asked the public to vote online for one of them to help split the 1 million euro prize.
The fashion industry, including fast-fashion groups that offer inexpensive clothing at cut-throat prices, is under pressure to rein in waste as public awareness of environmental issues gains ground.
Winners were: Crop-A-Porter, which makes textile from food crop harvest leftovers; Algae Apparel, which uses algae as a dye; Smart Stitch, which makes dissolvable thread; The Regenerator, which separates cotton and polyester blends for recycling, and Fungi Fashion, which makes clothes from decomposing mushroom roots.
“All industries need to re-think, innovate and challenge status quo,” said H&M chief executive officer and board member Karl-Johan Persson.
The company noted that applicants offered a broad range of ideas, but that most of the solutions came from outside the fashion industry.
“This year’s Global Change Award winners are about disrupting business-as-usual to help transition us to a low-carbon and circular economy,” noted Vikram Widge, who heads climate finance and policy for the International Finance Corporation, and was a member of the award’s jury.
The winner of the public vote in the competition, now in its third year, will

Instead of starting with the weakest Pokemon first, players will now battle Pokemon in the order they were placed in the gym. Gyms will also become places where you can get items, allowing you to spin a photo disc like you do at PokeStops and receive items in return.

Haunting Sculpture Offers A Surreal Glimpse At The Future Of Climate Change

Those visiting the Venice this year may have noticed something unusual while passing the Ca’ Sagredo Hotel: two giant hands reaching out from the murky, aquamarine waters below.

The disorienting vision is a sculpture called “Support” by artist Lorenzo Quinn, meant to provide a daunting premonition of the potential damage caused by climate change.

“Venice is a floating art city that has inspired cultures for centuries,” the artist said, in a statement released by Halcyon Gallery. “But to continue to do so it needs the support of our generation and future ones, because it is threatened by climate change and time decay.”

The piece takes the shape of two childlike hands, magnified to the extreme, outstretched to buttress the towering hotel ― a Venice landmark. In part, Quinn was intrigued by the idea of creating hands because they are “considered the hardest and most technically challenging part of the human body,” also possessing “the power to love, to hate, to create, to destroy.”

Quinn constructed the massive hands in a studio off-site, then transported them via canal to the hotel. You can see parts of the lengthy construction process on Instagram. 

Two human hands forge a lasting imprint in the viewer’s mind, perfectly mimicking the potential the body parts possess in real life ― to support, to defend, to create change. The visceral image is intended to draw focus on the fragility of the environments we too often take for granted, emphasizing the power of humans to either salvage or seal their fates. 

The artist, as he explained on Instagram, “wants to speak to the people in a clear, simple and direct way through the innocent hands of a child and it evokes a powerful message which is that united we can make a stand to curb the climate change that affects us all. We must all collectively think of how we can protect our planet and by doing that we can protect our national heritage sites.”

Almost there…

A post shared by Lorenzo Quinn (@lorenzoquinnartist) on

Quinn’s “Support” will be on view until Nov. 26.

This Tweet About Pet Names Could Change Your Relationship For The Better

Most couples come up with pet names for each other fairly early into a relationship: Baby, babe, boo, sweetheart ― we all have our faves.

While those are all classics, there’s nothing wrong with switching things up every now and then. Last week, Twitter user @cybersygh suggested doing just that and it really caught on: 

Things escalated quickly after that, when Bela Garces (@djbbga on Twitter) showed the tweet to her boyfriend Isaac and posted his reaction:

Isaac loved the idea:

He got a little carried away but it was adorable:

Garces’ hilarious tweet quickly went viral, with over 87K reshares and 241K “likes.”

The 19-year-old told The Huffington Post she couldn’t stop laughing at the nicknames and that Isaac hasn’t stopped since.

Watching Al Gore’s New Climate Change Doc Before Trump’s Inauguration Was Eerie

When I first realized Donald Trump’s inauguration would occur on the second day of the Sundance Film Festival, I felt relief. Instead of being glued to the inevitable Twitter meltdown as our nation plunges into an alarming new era, I could embrace toasty theaters at an event where art prevails. Phew. 

Upon arriving in snowy Park City on Thursday, the rose-color glasses I’d donned felt a bit more pallid. Reality had sunk in, and suddenly I wondered whether it was even appropriate to spend the weekend seeing movies while a new political order emerges in real time. Then I sat down for my first screening, “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” and those glasses lost their focus altogether. 

“An Inconvenient Sequel” is Al Gore’s follow-up to “An Inconvenient Truth,” the Oscar-winning documentary that in 2006 electrified the debate surrounding climate change. “Truth,” a showcase for Gore’s PowerPoint lectures about the horrors of global warming, was an exercise in apprehension. “Fix this now, or we are doomed,” the movie screamed. Many, thankfully, listened. So many, in fact, that “An Inconvenient Sequel” is brimming with hope, sort of.

Now, listen. I’m a movie journalist. I can’t pretend to write this as a climate-change sage of any kind. But, as science-y as these documentaries are, they are surprisingly easy to understand, especially in tone. (Credit this time around is owed to directors Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk, whose film reveals more about Gore than Davis Guggenheim managed in “An Inconvenient Truth.”) Yes, weather-related catastrophes have continued at frightening rates; just look at the recent floodings in Florida and Louisiana, or the shrinking Manhattan coastline predicted in “Truth.” But the sequel praises the world’s remarkable strides over the past 11 years, chiefly 2015’s United Nations conference in Paris, which resulted in a wide-ranging agreement to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions and prevent Earth’s temperatures from continuing to rise.

A sense of achievement pervades the movie ― and then, right as promise for the health of our planet swells, Trump gets elected. In the final scene, Gore sits at his laptop, watching the president-elect call climate change an “expensive hoax” and vow to withdraw from the Paris accord

When I checked my phone after “An Inconvenient Sequel” ended, another New York Times push notification about Trump’s links to Russian president Vladimir Putin had come though. More of the same. The next morning, after the former reality TV star was inaugurated, Twitter informed me that the Obama administration’s climate-change page had been removed from the White House website.

Suddenly the outcomes Gore and his allies had effected seemed lost to what we call the “transition of power.” What a way to begin Sundance, usually a joyful occasion about celebrating creativity.

At Thursday night’s premiere of the aptly titled Netflix dark comedy “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore,” Park City mayor Jack Thomas spoke of his town’s own efforts to combat climate change. Watching Thomas speak, it was hard to believe so much of the world beyond this little festival bubble would aggressively protest. 

On Friday morning, as journalists poured out of a press screening of “The Incredible Jessica James,” talk turned to Trump. I congregated outside the theater with a cabal of journalists, many of whom adored the movie (myself included), particularly because it offered comforting counter-programming to the inaugural speech we’d just avoided.

Starring Jessica Williams, “Jessica James” borrows familiar post-breakup romantic-comedy beats, but its voice is distinctly modern. Fictional Jessica is an aspiring New York playwright with a progressive worldview that implicitly opposes much of Trump’s rhetoric. At her younger sister’s baby shower, for example, the titular marriage-averse millennial gifts a self-illustrated picture book called Subverting the ABCs of the Patriarchal Paradigm.

The movie provided a charming 85-minute reminder of the inclusive landscape we assume Hillary Clinton’s presidency would have fostered. And then, as we stragglers went our separate ways, it was back to reality. The bubble had burst. Trump was our president. (Jessica Williams 2020.)

Less than 24 hours after the festival’s start, Sundance is in a weird mood. Yet, just like most of this fearful country, those of us in Park City must decide how to move forward. In “An Inconvenient Sequel,” Gore recalls having to do the same when the Supreme Court decided George W. Bush would be our president, and look how much progress Gore encouraged in the years since. If there’s relief from the chaos in these Utah mountains, maybe that’s OK. 

“An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” opens in theaters June 28. “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore” hits Netflix on Feb. 24. “The Incredible Jessica James” is hoping to secure theatrical distribution at Sundance.

Now you can check it out, thanks to a behind-the-scenes video from a recent episode.

The Heart of Change

THE HEART OF CHANGE

A frequent explanation for the unexpected election result is that this was a “change election” in which a majority of voters wanted some kind of sweeping change at the national level. Disruption is another word being used to explain both the method and the aim of the Trump campaign. The new leader represents the energy of disruption that will shake things up and turn things around.

Part of the problem lies in the fact that disruption comes from the root rupture which carries troubling meanings like “tearing asunder, breaking apart, splitting up and breaking to pieces.” When it comes to change the old warning is ‘be careful what you wish for.’ People who simply want some kind of change often wind up ‘throwing the baby out with the bath.’ Like the Brexit vote in the British Isles, there will be increasing buyer’s remorse as people realize that the problems of the modern world are massive in size, complicated in nature and global in scope.

Change, so greatly desired, is not easily accomplished. Genuine change requires a sense of unity, a feeling of wholeness as happens when a person’s entire life becomes altered; mind and body, spirit and soul. The same truth applies to a country or a culture which must touch its deepest, most inclusive roots in order to both unify and genuinely change.

On the day after the election a group of us were meeting in the office of our non-profit organization that works with at-risk youth, people in various states of trauma and inter-cultural healing projects. We were trying to imagine what changes and what troubles would come from the upsetting election and the vitriolic campaign. The obvious concern was that the fractures and divisions in our culture would only be intensified and the rampant disparities be increased.

Our weighty conversation was interrupted by the sound of people shouting, getting louder and louder in the street outside. Pulling up the window blinds revealed a group of 70 to 80 high school students marching up the sidewalk below, calling out in unison, “Give us our future back. Give us our future back.” We went down to the intersection where they stood chanting enthusiastically, their tone sounding more like a song than a demand.

An older man with a loud, deep voice yelled out: “White lives matter too!” Someone nearby answered, “Of course;” as if gently pointing to the white students who looked to be the majority of a diverse group that included African American, Hispanic and Asian boys and girls all standing together.

The chant shifted to, “Save our future. Save our future.” Some people in cars began honking back in a kind of rhythmic support of the young spirits. Others banged their horns impatiently, as if to say, “Get out of my way; I don’t have time for this.” For a moment the daily traffic ceased as the divide between the past and the future appeared in the intersection along with the potentially growing distance between the young and the old.

Painful divisions in the culture have been there all along, serious injuries have gone unhealed for decades and great injustices have been routinely ignored. Now that campaigns are waged like desperate, all-out wars, all the underlying angers, resentments and fears have been stirred up and have risen to the surface. There is a return of the repressed fears and feelings and a release of toxins as when an old wound is opened or ruptures.

Amidst reckless provocation, the age-old American problems of race, ethnicity and immigration have become weaponized and the fractures and fault lines between genders and age groups, between urban and rural populations, between wealthy and poor groups have been rashly exploited. When a country becomes so divided winning is a lot like losing. When the electoral vote and the popular vote diverge everyone loses something. Amidst all the vitriol, crude animosity, fake news and false information something essential has been lost and everyone’s future is in greater peril.

There in the street, I wanted to tell the students that they were right to cry out in the midst of all the pain and fear. I wanted to call out that those who indulge in hating others secretly hate themselves. I wanted to shout that every war has two losers; that the real battle is always in the human heart; that the genuine ideals of truth and justice, of love and beauty remain worth fighting for regardless of the odds.

But, they were on the move again, crossing through the intersection with a new chant that became even more passionate, “Love trumps hate! Love is greater than hate!” The words rang out above the sounds of the street as the intersection began to clear and the daily traffic resumed. “Love is greater than hate,” echoed loudly from the walls of the buildings on both sides of the street as everyone moved on carrying their own thoughts and hopes and fears.

The world can become polarized and threatened in a thousand different ways and we can become deeply disheartened as “man’s inhumanity to man makes countless thousands mourn.” The fact that love is greater than hate is all that tips the balance of the world towards life. But only if enough people, young and old, find the love and courage in their hearts to truly change the world.

One root of the word change means to simply “exchange one thing for another.” The deeper, more radical root means “to transform, to become a different substance entirely.” What we need at this critical time in the history of the world are the kinds of changes that go beyond the limits of power politics, fixed ideologies and economic theories. What we need are the kinds of changes that can only begin in the depths of the human heart and soul, the place where history is always being made. Hate and anger can change things in the moment; but love is greater than hate and what the heart loves can alter the substance of life and thus change the world.

An old idea states that each soul comes to life at a time when it has something to give to the world. Each child born, regardless of race or ethnicity, gender identification or sexual inclination, social status or economic condition brings some gifts and genius qualities to life. Each person is automatically valuable and worthy of respect because each has something substantial and unique to contribute to life.

We live at a time when both nature and culture need healing; when people all over the world need a renewed sense that life is indeed meaningful, that each living soul is worthy of love and respect. This is no time for cynicism or giving in to despair; this is the time we have come to life to live, the time to work for what we truly love. As the African proverb insists, ‘what you love is the cure.’ What we love is the cure for what ails us and what brings healing to the human heart also helps heal the world.

Love can be gentle when care is needed, but fierce when change is required. Despite all that is disheartening, because of all the pain and fear, it is time to become true agents of change in order to help transform the world we must live in together. Amidst all the darkness at this, the darkest time of the year, we can take heart from the voices and diverse spirits of the young who must imagine a better future for human cultures and for the common earth we all inhabit. When in touch with what we love our hearts become young again. Love is greater than hate, love tips the world towards ongoing creation, what we truly love is the cure.

John Elliott to Change Corporate Name

John Elliott is paring down.
After seven seasons, the buzzy men’s designer is eliminating the + Co. from his company’s official corporate name.
“It seems like such a silly thing,” he said.
What’s ironic is that his mother “relentlessly pounded into my head growing up that what’s wrong with my generation is that it was all about me, me, me. So what do I do but go and start a company under my own name.”
Although his mom might have disapproved, Elliott has caught the attention of key retailers including Bergdorf Goodman, Barneys New York and Saks with his youthful athletic-inspired aesthetic.
He said during the inaugural New York Fashion Week: Men’s in July, Elliott was featured in Bergdorf’s windows and the brand name just read: John Elliott. “So we collectively realized we should drop the ‘+ Co.’,” he said. “It really was a mouthful.”
So starting next month, all of the line’s branding — its label, its Web site — will just read John Elliott.

While admitting to have “mixed feelings” about the pope, the host did appreciate his views on this particular topic, especially in contrast to those held by many Republican representatives in Congress.

“I think it’s just awesome that this pope took on this issue,” Maher said. “I love that Boehner invited him to talk to Congress, and there he was the Grandmaster Flash of crazy non-evidentiary nonsense, lecturing the Republicans on reality.”

Elsewhere in the episode, Maher discussed British Prime Minister David Cameron, Kim Davis and Josh Duggar.

‘Whiteness Goggles’ Set Out To Change How You See Cultural Appropriation

Having a hard time understanding the meaning of appropriation? Take a look at Portland-based artist Roger Peet’s handy “Whiteness Goggles” series.

In the images he created for the series, the history of violence and oppression endured by people of color quite literally becomes the backdrop for the quirky styles and awesome music of white people. Take for example his biting ode to Miley Cyrus. In the image above, she twerks before a crowd of armed policemen in Ferguson, Missouri. In another, Katy Perry poses in a geisha costume in front of an exploding atomic bomb.

“All of the people shown engaging in acts of cultural appropriation … are what you would call white,” Peet explained to The Huffington Post. “Behind them, in the red, is the rest of what whiteness means: the daily violence and brutality of a world system that is bent on turning everything — every sacred grove, every deep note, every singular moment — into an object of value for speculators.” 

However, if you’re at all disturbed by the violence and suffering visualized in the background imagery, Peet provides a cheeky solution. Simply slip on a pair of his “Whiteness Goggles,” the supplementary part of the project pictured below, and watch as all the nitty gritty backdrop details fade from view. What a cute kimono, Katy! 

“Discussing [cultural appropriation] opens fault lines within groups of people,” Peet said, describing the inspiration for his work, “and reveals some fundamental differences in the ways different people see the world as a result of their contexts of race, class, gender and power. Appropriation is something I think about a lot, because I think it’s a singular way to understand some of the more insidious and destructive ways that capitalism works.”

Specifically, Peet, who himself is white, is referencing what he claims is capitalism’s ability to spin lives, stories, traditions, even suffering, into profitable goods. “Capitalism invented whiteness in order to create a class of people that could parasitize the rest of the world,” he continued. “A people with no connection to history, divorced from place and context, engines of pure abstraction — which is what Capitalism is all about; the conversion of the complex, beautiful world into quantifiable units that can be speculated upon.”

Before embarking on this project, Peet hung 250 flyers around Portland, asking strangers to call a number and leave a voicemail discussing their thoughts on cultural appropriation. You can listen to said voicemails here.

Peet also incorporated the perspectives of what he dubbed a “critical advisory group of indigenous artists and artists of color,” including artists Sara Siestreem, Sharita Towne and Gabe Flores, who “spent much time tirelessly shooting down concepts that didn’t work, and patiently explaining why many of my ideas were deeply ignorant and ineffective.”

Nearly every news cycle brings a handful of egregious instances of cultural appropriation. Last week we saw Kylie Jenner sporting cornrows and MFA Boston promoting “Kimono Wednesdays.” For those unaware of the ignorant and hurtful ramifications of such choices, allow teenage actress Amandla Stenberg to humbly school you.

Appropriation occurs when a style leads to racist generalizations or stereotypes where it originated but is deemed as high-fashion, cool or funny when the privileged take it for themselves,” she explained in a video released in April. 

In Peet’s words: “When you put on the ‘Whiteness Goggles,’ the colonial, military and police violence that underpins casual cultural consumption disappears. This is what life is like under whiteness, within the dominant category that capitalism has created. We white people can just unsee the violence that is done in our name. We don’t have to look. When we put on the whiteness goggles, we become heroes, and all the while so many others look at us as butchers.”

“IN  // APPROPRIATE: An excavation of appropriation” is on view at Littman Gallery in Portland until July 29. The show is presented in association with artists Sara Siestreem (Hanis Coos), Camas Logue (Klamath-Modoc), Sharita Towne and Gabe Flores, who are programming additional installations in the gallery.

‘Look Of Silence’ Director On How The Film Is Sparking Change In Indonesia

Joshua Oppenheimer‘s 2013 documentary “The Act of Killing“ detailed the Indonesian genocide of the 1960s, which has been estimated to have claimed the lives of about half a million people. Now Oppenheimer is back with a follow-up film called “The Look Of Silence,” which is enabling Indonesians to finally address horrors their country has yet to recover from.

“‘The Look Of Silence’ has, I’m humbled to say, helped catalyze a fundamental transformation in how Indonesians are responding to the genocide and its present day terrible legacy of corruption, fear and violence,” Oppenheimer told HuffPost Live’s Nancy Redd on  Thursday. “It’s helped energize a movement for truth and reconciliation and some form of justice.”

Truth and reconciliation legislation would help bring closure to many Indonesians. But the documentary takes a different approach to exposing the genocide. 

“The Look Of Silence” follows one family of survivors’ tragic discovery of how their son was murdered in 1965 and who his killers were. The film documents the family’s youngest son, Adi, as he confronts his brother’s killers. Oppenheimer explained the effect the documentary is having in the country at its center.

“Indonesians through the film are acknowledging how torn the social fabric of the country is, and how urgently truth and reconciliation are needed,” Oppenheimer said. “And the government, in response to this debate the film has raised, has now introduced a truth and reconciliation bill. Woefully inadequate, but a tremendous start in a way.”

Watch Oppenheimer discuss his moving documentary in the video above, and click here to watch his full HuffPost Live conversation.

Gucci’s Chime For Change Teams up With Global Citizen

In an effort to raise awareness about girls’ and women’s issues around the globe, the Gucci-led Chime For Change has secured a long-term partnership with Global Citizen, a group striving to end extreme poverty by 2030.
To that end, Gucci and Chime For Change have signed on as the presenting partners for this year’s Global Citizen Festival that will be held on Sept. 26 in New York on Central Park’s Great Lawn. Thousands are expected to catch performances by Beyoncé, Ed Sheeran, Pearl Jam and Coldplay.
Beyoncé will be right at home, and not just because she and Jay Z live in TriBeCa. In 2013, she cofounded Chime for Change with Salma Hayek to help raise funds and awareness for girls’ and women’s empowerment with a focus on education, health and justice. Through crowdfunding, the group has raised more than $ 7.3 million to support 409 projects in 86 countries through 144 nonprofit partners.
Never one to shirk the spotlight, Beyoncé helped launch the partnership with Global Citizen with an announcement video. Her cohort Hayek noted that Chime for Change and Global Citizen were both started “with the idea that individuals have a significant role to play in creating global change.” She said, “This partnership will reach millions

8 Facts That’ll Change How You View ‘How I Met Your Mother,’ According To Alyson Hannigan

For everyone who thinks they know everything about “How I Met Your Mother,” prepare to be lawyered.

Alyson Hannigan, otherwise known as Lily Aldrin, has been busy since the show ended a little more than a year ago. She’s had her hands full with being a mom, has a role in a new film called “Modern Love” and she’s even working with Ball Park’s Finest hot dogs, which she did admit, though she “usually” doesn’t try to brag, looked so good after she cooked them over a campfire that they wouldn’t even need a filter on Instagram.

During a short reprieve from her busy schedule, Hannigan took some time to chat with The Huffington Post about some behind-the-scenes stories from “HIMYM.” Prepare yourself: they might change the whole way you look at the show.

1. The cast talked about having an intervention for all of their puns.

When asked if the cast had any interventions that didn’t make the show, Hannigan said, “We talked about needing an intervention for ourselves to stop making so many puns. We would just pun for hours and hours and hours. It was great, but we were like, ‘We might have a problem,’ but we enjoyed it.”

The puns all started when a guest star mentioned the magazine Cat Fancy, Hannigan added: “We started having cat puns, and we had an afternoon of punning anything about cats. Fancy that!”

2. Alyson Hannigan’s real kid was fired from the show.



One of Hannigan’s kids was slated to play Lily and Marshall’s second child, but then she got some disappointing news. “They fired my kid from that role. She was gonna be the baby, but [producer] Carter Bays was like, ‘Nope. She’s too old,’ and she got replaced,” Hannigan said.

“I was like, ‘You fired my child. First of all that’s ageism. I don’t think you’re allowed to fire her because she’s too old,'” she joked.

3. The Cockamouse was real.

The Cockamouse was the mysterious hybrid creature that Marshall and Lily found in their apartment, and though it seems like something someone made up, like the “South Park” monster ManBearPig, it turns out this was based on a real story.

“Yes, that is based on a story that happened to [producer] Kourtney Kang in New York in an apartment she lived in,” says Hannigan. She continued, “They were not sure if it was a cockroach or a mouse. And they’re pretty convinced it must’ve been both and it did fly away.”

To that, HuffPost responded, “Are you freaking kidding me?” Hannigan said, “I don’t think it flew out of the window, but it flew.”

4. The cast originally wanted Victoria to be the mom.

“Early on, I wanted Victoria to be the mom,” Hannigan said. “I guess Carter later said had we got canceled she would’ve been the mom. But, you know, somebody great would come on [the show] and we would be like, ‘Yeah, we want her to be the mom,’ so it was sort of just like whoever was on for a long period of time. We’re like, ‘Let her be the mom. Let her.’ We just loved everybody.”

5. Some of the cast knew early on that the mom would die.

Actor Josh Radnor was told about the major “HIMYM” finale twist during Season 1 of the show and Hannigan actually found out early as well. They had to film a lot of reactions for Ted Mosby’s kids early in the series that would then air in later seasons, the actress said, and after that some “whisperings” started getting out that the series would end with the mom’s death.

“I knew that was the case,” said Hannigan. “I didn’t know who the mom was going to be, but I did know that the reason he was telling all these stories is because she passed away, which was very sweet.”

6. Producers were worried Alyson Hannigan and Cristin Milioti looked too similar.

Hannigan says the whole process of finding the right actress to play the mom was “very secretive” and caused some suspicion around set when trailers that would “never be locked” suddenly were. Hannigan says she first met the mother, Cristin Milioti, in a makeup trailer because producers wanted to see how the pair looked side by side.

“They wanted to look at us next to each other to see if they were going change her hair or something because they were a little worried that we looked similar, so I had to go stand next to her and we had some people look at us together,” she said.

7. Alyson Hannigan was the reason Lily never had a musical number.

Image: Giphy

Each of the main cast members on “HIMYM” had a musical number except for Lily — and it turns out there was a good reason for that.

“I begged them not to make me,” said Hannigan. “Yeah, singing has never been something that I wanted to do publicly. It’s actually like a phobia. I know it sounds weird, but it has always been that way. And then I find myself in these shows that want to do musicals, and I’m like, ‘Noooooo!'”

Hannigan says she has gotten better when it comes to singing, but she’s “not gonna be dropping an album anytime soon.”

8. If it was up to Jason Segel, “HIMYM” would have a Hanukkah reunion show.

The actress told HuffPost she’d definitely be into a “HIMYM” reunion and that Jason Segel was actually coming up with some ideas during the finale.

“Jason was pitching some really funny specials, like a Hanukkah special and all these things with Carter. It was quite funny… Carter said we could do eight Hanukkah specials. One for each night. I’d be up for it,” she said.

In the words of Barney Stinson, that sounds pretty legen …

Exclusive: This Documentary on Plus-Size Models Will Change the Way You Think About Your Body

Plus-size fashion is having more than a moment, it’s on the brink of a revolution—and models are taking on a leading role.

From Ashley Graham‘s Sports Illustrated ad to Candice Huffine‘s Pirelli Calendar slot, the community has been on the fashion industry’s lips all year. In the midst of such pronounced media attention, producer and former model Jessica Lewis is getting ready to debut Straight/Curve, a documentary that delves into the world of plus-size modeling.

“This generation of models is ready to usher in a new definition of beauty—one that is all inclusive and supports positive body ideals and self acceptance,” said Lewis, who has spent over 15 years as a straight-size and plus-size model. “The fashion industry needs to be reflective and representative of the diversity that exists in present day society.”

Straight/Curve, set to release next summer, aims to examine and redefine the beauty standards put forth by the fashion industry, as they relate to the plus-size fashion. Most importantly, it will be talking about issues often pushed aside. Multiple people will be speaking about sample sizes and how adding a size 14 into circulation will help get diversely sized models in magazines. Agents will be talking about their move towards eliminating plus-size boards and placing all models together. Models will be talking about making plus-size inclusion a non-event in the media.

Straight-Curve-Models

Clockwise from top left: Eva Kay, Natalie Torres, Jessica Lewis, Sarah Hartshorne, and Sabina Karlsson being interviewed for Straight/Curve.

The film is the most insider look at the industry so far, going behind the scenes of New York’s plus-size fashion industry, with a focus on top models, agents, clients, and photographers. The trailer is already loaded with power players, but there are some top models being kept a surprise… So far, we know it will follow industry influencers, including Kate Dillon, Sophie T. Simmons, and Jennie Runk, among others (including this Glamour writer!).

Overall, Straight/Curve aims to expose the complex relationship between the fashion industry, mainstream media, and body image in society. “When, how, and why did size zero become the norm when two thirds of women are considered ‘plus-size’ sitting between a size 10 to 14?” Director Jenny McQuaile told Glamour. “Our documentary will examine this question. There’s always been a complex relationship between the fashion industry, the media, and body image and we’re finally making a film that will investigate that.”

Here’s en exclusive look at the trailer:

Working Parents and the Welfare State: Family Change and Policy Reform in Scandinavia

Working Parents and the Welfare State: Family Change and Policy Reform in Scandinavia


The mass entry of women into the labor market, the decline of the male breadwinner norm and the rise of the dual-earner family have all profoundly transformed the societies of the Western industrialized world. This book argues that childcare has become increasingly defamilized or collectivized as mothers have joined the labor market, causing significant impact on welfare policies. As a result, the complex relationship between family change and policy reform calls for a rethinking of the relationship between the welfare state, labor markets and working parents. Rather than concentrating on the changing models of motherhood, Leira advocates the need to consider the effects of the gendered division of work and welfare on fathers'' opportunities to be supported as carers for children.

Will Photo Sharing Change the Wedding Industry

2015-06-20-1434832533-3148158-IMG_4219.PNG.png

I often say that I’m glad I got married before I knew anything about weddings and that I hope I stop working with weddings long before my kids get married.

I got married in 2002 having only looked at a handful of wedding magazines. Through a strange twist of fate, a few years later I was part of the wedding world, writing about weddings, giving out wedding advice, and working with wedding vendors to help them grow their business. If I’d known what I later learned about weddings when I was planning my own, I might have been paralyzed by the sheer amount of information available.

Earlier this year, I wrote what I assumed would be my last wedding article. After seven years of writing about weddings, I thought I had said everything I could say. As I’ve said here before, there’s really nothing new and unique about weddings.

Shortly after handing in the article, a friend invited me to be her “plus one” at the wedding of a mutual friend.

I was excited to go to the wedding as a guest, with no ulterior motive, no need to take notes and think about work! Before I even arrived at the wedding I downloaded the photo sharing app the couple was using.

Wedding photo sharing apps have been around for some time, but I generally stick to the social networks for sharing my photos. However, in the spirit of trying new things, I decided to download their app. I had a mixed reaction. I was unsure about the privacy settings and found it difficult to see so many photos of/from people I didn’t know throughout the evening.

Also, after so many years of working with wedding photographers, small independent business owners who rely on referrals and word of mouth for their next clients, I couldn’t help wonder how photo sharing might be changing their business.

I had to admit, I did like the immediacy and intimacy of using the app. I hadn’t been at the pre-wedding parties, but I loved seeing the photos from them. There were some inside jokes from those events mentioned at the wedding, and being able to see the pre-wedding events made me feel like I knew what was going on.

Ironically, a few days after the wedding I got a call from a former colleague now working with Snapshots, a new wedding photo sharing app. She told me what they did, which she described as “an all-in-one photography platform that brings photographers, event vendors, clients, and guests, all together.” It’s like a private cloud for the wedding where every photo, taken by the pros and the guests, gets captured. I realized that Snapshots addressed the exact concern I had for how all this guest photo-sharing was affecting professional photographers. Snapshots benefits couples because now they don’t have to go chasing down friends’ photos and hashtags, and they get to see some of their photographer’s photos right away instead of waiting weeks or months for proofs.

Full disclosure, my former colleague was calling in part to see if I might consider working with Snapshots. So, suddenly, I’m back to thinking about working with weddings again. One of the things I never liked was the way wedding blogs seem to set couples and vendors against each other. So many articles are written as though all couples are cheap and all vendors are trying to cheat them. Truth be told, there is a lot of both in the wedding industry, but what if professionals and money saving changes could work together? Contrary to my previous statement, would that be something new in the world of weddings?

Rather than cutting the photographer out of the process, or making couples and guests feel like they’re sneaking around the professional photographer, Snapshots puts the professional photographer front and center. Photographers set the app up for couples so that everyone can share their photos, giving couples one less thing to do. Snapshots becomes the way that photographers and their clients interact with the proofs after the event.

Since going to the wedding and talking to my friend I find myself thinking about a photo from my own wedding. A photo a guest took with one of those disposable cameras we put on the tables back in the “old” days. The photo is of a friend who is no longer with us, he is holding a drink and smiling broadly.

Our photographer wasn’t crazy about the disposable cameras, he didn’t want to have people in the way taking photos he was trying to take, but that silly snapshot is every bit as important to me as the framed photo of my husband and I kissing that the photographer took. A photographer can’t be everywhere at once, and he never would have gotten that random shot of our friend. With the photo sharing apps available now, today’s couples really don’t have to worry about missing a moment like that.

So maybe I was wrong, maybe there is something new in the wedding world. Maybe it wouldn’t hurt for me to do a little work writing about weddings and wedding photos. After all, by the time my child gets around to wedding planning the newest photo sharing apps will probably be implanted in our brains.

Ten 5-Minute Habits That Can Change Your Life

Having good habits is the difference between your life being an easy, smooth-sailing adventure, and it being a train wreck. Why? Because good habits allow us to keep the little things under control so that we can effectively handle the big things. With good habits, we are able to navigate life’s obstacles with ease. And they make life generally more pleasant.

The habits listed below aren’t time consuming. They simply should be part of your everyday routine. So here are some good, quick habits that you can do each day to make your life easier and more enjoyable.

1. Make Your Bed: There is something demoralizing about returning home from a long day of work and looking at an unmade bed. Let’s face it. An unmade bed is depressing. It says, “I am so disorganized, I don’t even have 1.5 minutes to clean up after myself in the morning.” It also makes your bedroom look like a brothel, but not in a sexy way, just in a dirty, sad way. When you walk into your bedroom and the bed is made, you’ll feel like you at least have the basics of life under control.

2. Floss Daily: Yes, flossing sounds boring, but there are a zillion reasons to do it twice a day. Let’s start with your breath. If you don’t floss, no one will want to stand within 10 feet of you because your breath will smell terrible. Let’s move on to your finances. If you don’t floss, you most assuredly are going to have dental issues uncovered by insurance, and you can say goodbye to that trip to Europe. You instead will be funding your periodontist’s new boat.

3. Always Say “Thank You”: We are becoming a society that is reluctant to use manners. It seems too formal, when we just want to be casual. The problem is that gratitude is necessary to inspire others to want to interact with you. You may think that people like you, but if you never thank them for what they do for you, here’s a news flash: They are just tolerating you. Moreover, if you don’t say “thank you,” no one is going to want to help you when you are in a real bind, e.g. stuck in the middle of nowhere with a flat tire and no spare.

4. Leave Early: A good rule of thumb is that it typically will take you longer to get somewhere than you anticipate. So always leave five minutes earlier than necessary. That way you aren’t destroying your karma by cursing out the accident victim on the side of the road whose car has been totaled, while you are stuck behind rubberneckers and late for your meeting.

5. Make Your Own Coffee: I love Starbucks more than anyone, but spending $ 2.00 on a cup of black coffee when you can make your own at home for about 27 cents is silly. Paying more than necessary for things is a bad habit. We should always be careful of how we spend our money, even if we are as rich as Bill Gates. Now buying a $ 2.00 cup of coffee makes sense if I am going to sit down and experience the ambience of being in a coffee house. Then I am spending 27 cents on coffee and $ 1.73 on ambience. That is OK. But if I grab a $ 2.00 cup of coffee and run out the door, I’ve just wasted $ 1.73. Wasting money is not going to get you anywhere in life (see “flossing”).

6. Tip Generously: Use the money you’ve saved by flossing and making your own coffee to tip service people properly. Being in a service profession is hard work. Service people not only provide a service, but they have the added pressure of having to interact with a million different personalities. Their work is not for the faint of heart. The least you can do as a consumer is to make someone’s day by tipping them generously for a job well done. And then you can spend your day knowing that you voluntarily did the right thing for another human being.

7. Don’t Leave Dirty Dishes in the Sink: Having a kitchen filled with dirty dishes isn’t just about being messy. Filthy dishes are a magnet for bugs (fruit flies, roaches, etc.). I like bugs, but they need to live outdoors, not in my kitchen. If you get in the habit of doing your dishes immediately after using them, you’ll save the money that you otherwise would be handing over to an exterminator to subsidize his new boat.

8. Leave Every Room Better Than When You Entered It: As you go through your house or apartment, tidy up as you pass through each room. You will be amazed how much easier it is to keep your environment organized if you do a little bit at a time. That may sound anal retentive, but it really is about living in a beautiful space. No matter where we live, we have the choice to either create a beautiful space or a mess. You will feel better and be happier if you live in beauty, so why not do the small things necessary to make that happen?

9. Compliment Others: Just as we are reluctant to say “thank you,” we seem to be turning into a society that is averse to paying a compliment. Encouraging others is an important skill. And it isn’t time consuming. Paying a compliment merely involves the decision to vocalize all those thoughts we have during the day that we don’t say out loud. How often do you notice someone’s haircut or blouse but don’t tell them it looks great? How often do you think, “Wow, they did a great job on that project,” but forget to mention it to them? When we authentically compliment others, our relationships improve, and we feel better about ourselves by having acted kindly.

10. Make Sure Your Transportation Is Always Ready: We all have to get to places on time and safely. So it is important that whatever you use for transportation is ready. That means making sure your gas tank is always above half full. That means making sure your public transportation card has enough money on it at all times. That also means that if you are relying on a cab, you call for one well ahead of time.

It is funny how if we accomplish the little things, everything else in life seems to run smoother. We feel better about ourselves, we have more stability in our relationships, our homes are more pleasant to be in, we are healthier, and we are under less stress generally. When we implement good habits, life more easily falls into place.

This Pint-Sized Style Crush Will Change The Way You Dress Your Kids

Meet Anastasiya, one of the most adorable little humans we’ve ever seen.

The two-and-a-half-year-old Moscow-based cutie has built quite the Instagram following, most likely due to her baby blue eyes and stylish outfits. The account is run by her mother, Anna Bakhireva, and features photos of the tot in beautiful silk scarves, stylish top knots and teeny tiny sneakers.

While it’s easy to assume that little Anastasiya is a model, she isn’t and she isn’t even that interested in fashion … yet. However, Bakhireva did tell us her daughter’s one weakness: shoes. “She wear[s] Hunters inside the home or her small Uggs in the middle of summer.” Looks like this is a girl after our own hearts.

Check out some of our favorite snaps of Anastasiya below, and tell us you aren’t melting over all the cuteness.

Agents of Destiny (Agents of Change #3)

Agents of Destiny (Agents of Change #3)


In the pulse-pounding conclusion to Guy Harrison’s sci-fi action-thriller trilogy, Calvin Newsome and Elena Jimenez have uncovered the Agency of Influence’s secret weapon in its quest to regain-or in this case, ensure that it never loses-its control of the powerful relic, the Arrowhead of the Seminole. Newsome and Jimenez travel back in time to the year 2000 to carry out two objectives meant to ensure a more peaceful civilization and turn the tables on the A of I: protect Calvin’s then-teenaged counterpart and kill Lasse Gantert, the agency’s nefarious executive director obsessed with finding and killing the boy. When Gantert proves to have more power than has been revealed, and in an era in which the Agencies of Influence and Justice are still imbued with the powers of the Arrowhead, Calvin and Elena find the deck stacked against them. Unbeknownst to them, Ronni Lee and Astrid Krueger, motivated by separate desires, wait in the shadows for their opportunity to assist the two heroes in their quest to end Gantert’s reign of terror.

Agents of Change: 5 Forward Thinkers You Need To Know

2015-05-25-1432592092-7061577-famous.jpg

They walk among us–those agents of change. Sometimes, we just need to be reminded of who they are. Take note of five luminous entities that strive to make the world a better place.

The F*** It Duo
Here’s one to savor. They said F**k It to their jobs and moved to Italy years ago and in 2005, they created their first F**k It Retreat. Meet Mr. and Mrs. F**k It, John Parkin and Gaia Pollini (pictured above). Ten years have passed and since that time, the couple birthed the first F**k It Book (“F**k It: The Ultimate Spiritual Way”/ 2008/ Hay House). Additional F**k It literary siblings emerged. The books have been translated into 22 languages and have sold more than 400,000 copies. Workshops, retreats, one-on-one counseling, e-courses, and expanded F**k Its in London and Ireland have risen out of the fertile soil of the duo’s F**k It imaginations. And then, in 2011, The Hill That Breathes (in Urbano, Italy), the fabulous F**k It locale, won Best European Retreat (Natural Health). The secret to this couple’s undeniably unique success? F**k if I know. Well, I do. Somewhat. It’s two words–and not those, by the way. It’s these two: Let Go. Or, in this case, a more nuanced practice in the art of letting go by using a unique therapeutic tool: Profanity. Relax, it’s not all swear words and then nirvana happens–not really. Although the couple’s modality tends to lean toward being über fun if not laughter provoking. What was it a yogi once told me: “An anxious mind cannot exist in a relaxed body.” The point is this: transformation may occur when you relax first, and then turn toward that thing you are so fretting over, breathe and embrace it–by saying F*** It of course. There’s more to it, but you get the picture. Regardless, when you’re on a mission to locate agents of change near and far, like I am, it’s a treat to find these two doing so well, one F-Bomb at a time.

Lynne McTaggart and The Intention Experiment
McTaggart, a best-selling author, researcher and lecturer, is renowned for how well she creates a bridge between science and spirituality. Her books, “The Bond,” “The Field,” “What Doctors Don’t Tell You,” and “The Intention Experiment,” each, on some level, rise beyond pedestrian trinket-acquiring “spirituality” and suggest that there is a more powerful field of energy within us and around us; that we are far more powerful and connected to each other than we were led to believe. But it’s McTaggart’s Intention Experiment which continues to draw significant interest. It finds the author/lecturer overseeing unique intentions en masse on the web, which have been called one of the largest mind-over-matter trials ever undertaken. By inviting like-minded souls together who can hold a singular vision for, say, peace in a certain region, can peace then be experienced in that region? That’s the thrust behind the Intention Experiment–harnessing the intentions of thousands of participants on a specific topic. McTaggart first chronicled all this in her book of the same name, asking: “if we are connected, can our thoughts and intentions affect and change the world and things ‘out there?'” Her compelling evidence suggests that the answer is, indeed, yes. Imagine then, what could happen if the entire populace of, say, New York City held a glorious intention for a set amount of time? What effect could that have? A powerful one me thinks.

Polish Heritage Festival, Belmont, California
Poland has been making major headlines over the last nine months. Where to begin? There’s the country’s surprising economic boom and recent election–conservative challenger Andrzej Duda defeated the incumbent, Bronislaw Komorowski. And lest we forget the significant anniversary markers in 2014 and 2015–the former commemorated the 75th anniversary of the German and Russian invasion of Poland, as well as the Katyn massacre; the latter the mass deportation of Polish citizens by Stalin. A number of Polish organizations have been paying tribute to their heritage as well as their fallen comrades over the last year especially, and while each year ushers in a crop of Polish festivals throughout the Bay Area, this year, for the first time, the Polish community is being asked to come together for a larger event to be held in Belmont, California. This will mark the first ever collaborative event organized by several Polish groups. Co-sponsors include Polish Society of California/PNA Lodge 7, The Polish Club, San Francisco, Łowiczanie Polish Folk Ensemble of San Francisco and The Polonian Cultural and Pastoral Center (PCPC) in Sacramento. There is also an emphasis on the importance of the Polish-American Congress, which strives to meet the challenges facing Polish-Americans. Dancing, Polish cuisine, history and much more are expected to converge at the May 30 outing, but what stands out significantly here is the solidarity emanating from the groups that are bringing the event to fruition, especially at a time when Poland is wonderfully newsworthy.

Village Yoga, Santa Cruz, California
As an author, travel writer and cultural moderator, I travel across the country for work on numerous occasions. I always make a point of dipping in to a yoga studio wherever I am. I have found some marvels in the likes of Bloomington, Indiana, and Kansas City, Missouri, and in an around California and then some. With thousands of yoga studios around the country, it’s challenging to pick just one that stands out. But I did find one that flies to the top of the list for any summer travelers out there, and anyone who might be interested in knowing what makes a business really thrive. So, what makes this Bikram Yoga portal in Santa Cruz, California--a mecca town for yoga studios by the way–rise above the others? What about the popular Funky Door in San Francisco? Or Chicago’s 105F, which offers a spirit-enhancing Gong Bath from time to time? Or any others for that matter? The answer rests in the title perhaps and, to me, it hearkens back to the old saying: “It takes a village.” Founded by Sally Adams and Amy Mihal in early 2001–the two women had big followings at San Francisco’s popular Global Yoga, founded by the remarkable Mary Jarvis–the studio has evolved into a vibrant mini community center on some level, with workshops, body work, coaching, nutrition, skin care and, well, plenty of yoga. Beyond its Bikram offerings, there are Vinyasa classes, as well as Yin/Restorative, a silent class and meditation. All that is good, however the main thing that stands out here is how well the owners nurture their clientele and, without much effort it seems, lure them in to participate in their ever-expanding enterprise that trickles back into the community. The works of local artists and photographers can often be seen on the walls. Locals are also invited to speak at workshops–think Oprah’s Soul Sunday series in a more relaxed environment. Encouragement abounds. You feel it the moment you walk in the door. And let’s face it, for any of us who are spiritually inclined and have done something like yoga or meditation, it doesn’t take much to actually pick up on the vibe of a place. Good juju exists here and the ripple effects are felt outside the door. Fitting, because what was it I once heard? True yoga takes place off the mat. Here’s to bending a little–or, in this case, a lot.

Robert Holden / Shift Happens
Folks may recall Holden’s PBS special Shift Happens! or his two BBC-TV docs on happiness. An author of numerous books–“Happiness NOW!”, “Shift Happens!”, “Holy Shift!” and his latest “Life Loves You,” co-written with “You Can Heal Your Life” maven Louise Hay, Holden’s approach to living a more balanced, vibrant life has been well received, to say the least. His book “Shift Happens” morphed into a popular weekly Hay House Radio show, which has now attracted an impressive posse of motivational speakers and new thought agents–from Esther Hicks and Dorene Virtue to Norman Shealy and Caroline Myss. The intention here is offer listeners an opportunity to tap into their own power more fully and step into life in new ways, creating a remarkable transformation. Change they say, is not often easy, but for those us out there that want shift to occur, it’s refreshing to know that we don’t have to go at it alone. Here’s to Holden’s thoughtful approach and the impact it generates.

10 Ways You Really Can Change the World

I believe that we all have the power to change the world. I do, and you do too.

Before I tell you how you can change the world and make a real difference, I want to point out where you may be right now.

Perhaps you’re sitting on the couch watching TV, seeing all the countries at war, watching atrocities such as beheadings and firing squads. You switch channels and you’re seeing volcanoes erupting, smothering whole towns with lava or earthquakes turning cities into rubble. You change again and watch the forlorn faces of beautiful polar bears trapped on tiny patches of ice as large glaciers melt around them.

Things seem pretty dismal, and you feel helpless, a victim who can’t help, can’t bring about change, but you’re wrong, you absolutely can and if you follow these 10 steps, I promise that you will.

1. Make a U-Turn.

Instead of feeling hopeless and victimized, believing you are just one person and can’t do anything, recognize that you need to start telling yourself that you’re going to be in control, in charge of the one thing you really can be in charge of — yourself.

2. Talk to Yourself, Out Loud, Every Day.

Stand in front of a mirror, look yourself in the eye and make affirmative statements to yourself.

“I am strong. I am smart. I can accomplish whatever I set my mind to.”

Say these over and over to yourself until you start to feel the power of your words inside your body.

3. Make Behavioral Changes to Go With Your New Mindset.

Set short-term goals to put these changes into practice.

a) I will say hello with a smile to five strangers everyday.
b) I will lift my head high and walk with my shoulders back an hour the first day, and an additional hour each day after that.
c) I will turn off my cell (phone and text) one hour a day and interact with a live human being.

These first three behavioral activities may take you a while to implement. Before you start, sit down, read them through carefully and decide how long is a reasonable time for you to accomplish these changes. Remember you have to actually feel different, not just act different. Pick a time frame for yourself, perhaps three to five weeks, then dive in. Don’t procrastinate, no matter how many good reasons you have.

When your three to five weeks is up, and you are handling these tasks well everyday, you are probably starting to wonder what this has to do with changing the world.

Well I have a surprise for you. You already have changed your world by changing the most important thing in your immediate universe — yourself.

You may already be getting comments from friends and family, telling you things like “You seem different but I’m not sure how” or “You seem much more confident when we talk.” You may notice people having a different and positive response to you when you walk past standing tall, smiling and saying hello. They may smile back and say something nice.

These are all very good changes and you can feel proud of yourself even if you do nothing more, but you are going to do much more, because you want to change the world.

4. Sit down with a piece of paper and a pen.

My experience with several thousand clients has shown that the visceral process of putting pen to paper and seeing your thoughts go from your mind and heart to your paper aids in forging a stronger commitment. Make a list of the 10 problems in the world that concern you most, the ones you believe most urgently need changing. Look your list over and decide which one is most important to you, then prioritize them, most important to least important. This is backup for later.

5. Take a different piece of paper and write down what specifically needs to be done to bring about this change.

For example, Reverse Climate Change. On the second paper you might put:

1 – Eliminate fossil fuels
2 – create new legislative standards for car emissions
3 – implement changes in beef production to cut down methane emissions

Just continue your list like this. You may have 10, 20, 30 items when you’re done. There’s no right or wrong amount. This is your list, you’re in charge.

6. Now you can go to the computer and type these two lists up so you have a permanent saved copy. Then take a couple days to get away from this, preferably outside, and think about what you’ve accomplished so far. You have recognized and identified a problem of great importance to you. You have categorized changes that need to happen to correct this problem. Now it’s time to insert yourself in a very real way into this change process.

7. It’s time for some honest and objective soul searching.

Up to now, you have brought your passion into play, but it’s time to step back and take a realistic look at your skill set. Think about what you know how to do, and what you do well. List at least five things, and maybe you can find 10 things. Then re-arrange them in order of what you like to do most down to what is your least favorite.

Number 8 and 9 go together.

8. List skills required for each of these changes and match to your skills. Go through and pair the two lists up.

9. Research organizations working on this problem. Find out who to contact and let them know you want to help and what you’d like to do.

10. You will be part of the solution – you will be changing the world!

Food for Change

Food for Change


Concern about our food system is growing, from the costs of industrial farming to the dominant role of supermarkets and recurring scandals about the origins and content of what we eat. Food for Change documents the way alternative food movements respond to these concerns by trying to create more closed economic circuits within which people know where, how, and by whom their food is produced. Jeff Pratt, Peter Luetchford and other contributors explore the key political and economic questions of food through the everyday experience and vivid insights of farmers and consumers, using fieldwork from case studies in four European countries (France, Spain, Italy and England). Food for Change is an insightful consideration of connections between food and wider economic relations and draws on a rich vein of anthropological writing on the topic.

7 Signs You’re Ready for a Major Life Change

2015-05-06-1430936858-800036-4431908004_11229444ae.jpg

There are moments in life when we know we need to drastically shift the course of our lives in order to live a life we love and truly be happy. Moments that while sometimes scary, will lead to a change that allows us to grow, evolve, and finally become who we were meant to be.

Wondering if you’re ready for that level of change and the joy that follows? Here are seven sure-fire signs you are ready and open for the big changes ahead.

1. You’re going through a life upheaval.

When you are experiencing a life upheaval whether it’s in your career, relationship, family life, or finances, it’s usually an indication that a change of course is necessary. It also represents an opportunity for you to learn more about yourself, what you want, and how to make the necessary changes to deliver the joy and peace you are seeking. A major life upheaval is nothing more than an invitation to do a bit of digging to grow and evolve as a person while setting new strategies into place to make life what you want it to be. Don’t let this rocky road be a sign that your life is doomed.

2. You’re at the end of your rope and you know it’s now or never.

You’ve been thinking about making a change for a while and you have had just about enough of the lack, unhappiness, frustration, and negativity that has been seeping into your soul. You’re ready to rewrite your life story and make it one of joy, peace, abundance, and success and are willing to do what it takes to create a life you love because you know you are worthy of that. We all are.

3. You’re tired of merely surviving.

You know on a fundamental level that life is meant to be enjoyed, experienced and truly loved and just paying the bills and getting by each month is slowly killing the creative and adventurous soul of yours. You dream of the day you can finally do what you love and live your life purpose and you are no longer willing to just survive. Your soul is telling you it’s your time to thrive.

4. Your current life is too small to fit your big dreams.

You’ve got big dreams and as you look around your current life you know that some things are going to have to shift dramatically to make room for everything you want to do. Whether you want to quit your job and backpack through Europe or build a cabin in the woods to write your amazing novel, big things need to happen and you know that in order for your dreams to become reality, you have to embrace the changes that are coming.

5. Your soul is calling you to be, have, and do more.

At first glance you thought life was great and you had nothing to complain about, but you are beginning to feel an internal desire to do so much more. Your vision isn’t completely clear and you aren’t sure where you might end up, but things are changing within you already and you know that as soon as you say ‘yes’ to that little voice inside nudging you along, the dominoes will begin to fall and your life is going to transform before your very eyes. It’s not a question of if you have more to be, have, and do, it’s a question of if you are ready. Well, are you?

6. All signs point to ‘YES’.

You’re noticing a common theme in your circle of friends, colleagues, and in the world around you. More people are making seemingly crazy decisions to quit their jobs, move across the country, or live their big dream and you can’t help but wonder why. The truth is, these are merely messages from the Universe telling you, yes my dear it’s time. Time for you to take the leap, the risk, and live a little (or a lot). There’s a whole world out there waiting for you and you are beginning to understand your time is coming.

7. You’re reading this article.

The fact that you are on the verge of a major life change isn’t news to you. You can feel the inner rumbling of your dreams and the magnetic force of inspiration pulling you to your purpose and this article is just confirmation for you. Listen to your heart and take the next step. There is no secret map that will highlight your path for you, all you have to do is follow your intuition and take inspired action. It really is that easy.

We Need To Change The Way We Celebrate Birthdays

For years, Dr. Christiane Northrup was the go-to source for women’s health and wellness on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” helping to foster a conversation on everything from kegel exercises to menopause. A board-certified OB/GYN and passionate believer in the spiritual side of healing, Northrup feels that age is just a number and growing older should be an entirely different experience for women than it is today. In the above clip from her upcoming “Super Soul Sunday” interview with Oprah, she explains why changing the way we look at birthdays is the first step to living agelessly.

“I would stop celebrating milestone birthdays,” Northrup says. “Because the milestone becomes a millstone. In our culture, it says you’re running out of time. You only have so much left.”

She’s not saying to give up the party — in fact, Northrup loves to celebrate. “I like a whole birthday season,” she says.

It’s the emphasis on our age, she explains, that needs to go. “See, just getting older is not enough to celebrate,” she says. “‘Well, I’m still here.’ That’s not worth much.”

Instead, Northrup believes a birthday should be about recognizing your triumphs. “You celebrate everything that you’ve accomplished or that you’re proud of in the past year so that you have really a celebration of your worth and your increased competence,” she says. “That’s a cool thing.”

Bill Nye Says ‘Give A F**k’ About Climate Change Instead Of Deflategate

Bill Nye is weighing in on Deflategate again, but this time he has a few props and a message to share about something far more important.

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick claimed atmospheric conditions and temperature changes could have caused footballs to lose air pressure during the team’s AFC Championship win over the Indianapolis Colts.

On Sunday, Nye said taking that much air out of a ball would require an inflation needle. But in a new video posted on Funny or Die, The Science Guy declared that “one test is worth 1,000 expert opinions,” and put some footballs into a fridge set to 51 degrees, or the temperature at the Jan. 18 game.

That’s where the video takes a very different turn.

“While we’re all obsessed with Deflategate, let’s keep in mind that there’s something about which you should give a fuck,” Nye said. “Yes, like Tom Brady, the world is getting hotter and hotter, and you know why? Because we humans are pumping carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.”

Nye then began listing things that contribute to climate change — including long-winded Deflategate press conferences — and followed that up with a rallying cry.

“You should vote for congressmen and senators that appreciate the threat of climate change and the rate at which the world is getting warmer, so that we can preserve the earth for humankind for generations to come,” Nye said.

Oh, and about those balls…

Nye took one out of the fridge, gave it a squeeze, pronounced it “pretty much the same,” and said “the Patriots probably bent the rules a little bit.”

Nye, who lived in Seattle for a number of years, ended the video with a message that’s bound to rankle the New England faithful: “Go Seahawks!”

Kanye West May Design Washington Wizards’ Uniforms, But We Think He Could Change A Lot More

In some of the most unexpected style news as of late, Kanye West might be designing NBA jerseys sometime soon. Kanye’s friend, Wale, who, according to Vanity Fair is a “creative liaison” for the Washington Wizards, recently stirred up rumors that West would help design the Wizards new basketball uniforms. Say what?!

Sure, West has style cred to his name: he’s appeared on the cover of Vogue, redone Kim’s wardrobe a few times and starred in Balmain’s Spring/Summer 2015 campaign. The man even showed his own fashion line at Paris Fashion Week, to not much fanfare.

So if the rumors are true, we’re envisioning Kanye’s got big changes in mind, such as:

Better jerseys What’s that jersey, Margiela? It is now. We predict that with Kanye’s designer connections (think Balmain, Giuseppi Zanotti) the new jerseys will be fly as f*** and probably look something like this:
revolve clothing

New sneaks Obviously, everyone will wear Yeezy’s Red Octobers even though they might be a little heavy to play in. Put your Jordans away!
kanye west shoes

New warmup sweats: Sweats MUST look good in warmups when you’re trying to intimidate another team, so a nice, neutral gray is a good way to get your game face on. Gold chain optional.
kanye west

Sweeter socks: Most athletes like to wear Nike Elite socks, as they’re known for their comfort and support level during matches. But with Kanye’s Kardashian connects, we predict the Washington Wizards will be wearing Arthur George aka Rob Kardashian’s upscale sock line.

Mandatory hair cuts: Hair is yet another way to intimidate opponents in the NBA (think Dennis Rodman). Why not try shocking other players with a new cut? “Hey LeBron, look at MY hairline.”

Wearing face masks If they work in football to intimidate opponents, they can do the same for basketball. Plus it looks red — team colors y’all!

Changing of the Guard: Five Prima Ballerinas Reflect on the Biggest Change in the Dance World

2015-01-03-WendyWhelanNisianHughesPhotographer2aRESIZE.jpg

This is an extraordinary time in the dance world, when five of the greatest ballerinas of our time, from leading American ballet companies, have, coincidentally, all announced their retirement within months of each other. Ballet to the People caught up with Wendy Whelan, Carla Körbes, Paloma Herrera, Xiomara Reyes, and Julie Kent to ask:

What in your view has been the most significant change in the dance world since you started out as a young dancer. How would you counsel a young dancer who is just starting out?

2015-01-03-WendyWhelanNisianHughesPhotographer3a.jpg

Wendy Whelan left Louisville, Kentucky, as a teenager to attend the School of American Ballet then spent her entire career at New York City Ballet. “… [A]n ideally modern woman, dancing with men as if part of a team, together on equal terms,” says The New York Times of her qualities as a ballerina. This modern woman acknowledges:

I’m from a very different generation. There were the giant choreographers – Martha Graham, George Balanchine, Merce Cunningham, Trisha Brown – who were creating huge volumes of work… I came in at the tail end of the Balanchine [era], surrounded by his dancers.

Dancers today are not so bound by the idea of a patriarch like Balanchine. Maybe that’s a good thing. They’re more open to other influences… But something gets a little bit lost, watered down. Now a New York City Ballet dancer is not surrounded by Balanchine’s dancers – it’s a huge change for a company that represents his work. We’re now floating a little more than the previous generation was. Dancers have more freedom today in how to dance Balanchine – and more opportunity to dance other artists’ work. While New York City Ballet no longer has one strong, profound resident choreographer, they do have an amazing young one in the ranks [Justin Peck].

Mr. B grew his company like a garden. It’s harder to find a company built around one choreographer’s work these days; it makes dancing in a company very different. It’s up to each dancer to choose one [environment] over the other: whatever makes you a better dancer.

2015-01-03-Jewels14.KorbesCarla.0839.AS.jpg

Brazilian-born Carla Körbes also trained at SAB and started her career at New York City Ballet, but spent the last decade at Pacific Northwest Ballet in Seattle. Her interpretive power astonishes, from the delicate airiness of her partnership with Karel Cruz in the central slow movement of Alexei Ratmansky’s Concerto DSCH to her haunting, feverish Sleepwalker in George Balanchine’s La Sonnambula. Though only 33, she has witnessed a sea change in the dance world:

Thanks to technology, dancers today have a much wider view of the dance world than when I first moved to New York. At age 14, coming to the U.S., all I knew was American Ballet Theatre, Baryshnikov, Nureyev, and some of the European companies. I barely knew anything about Balanchine. Today, dancers have so much more information, and are much more mobile. Kids are traveling everywhere to go to summer programs, funding themselves with Kickstarter – putting their dreams on the Internet and seeing if they will pan out.

There are positives to moving around, and changing companies: you put things in perspective, you can compare living and working conditions. Living in one city, you tend to take things for granted, your view is much more narrow. In Europe, a dancer can leave for a year and still keep her original contract. You get to explore and grow as a person and as a dancer. A legacy like Wendy’s of 30 years in one company is so rare today.

Technology can be amazing: for example, last year at Vail [the Vail International Dance Festival], I had been working with [choreographer] Brian Brooks. I had to leave, but he said “No problem. If we need more time, we can work via Skype.”

In 1996, when I first arrived in New York, Skype was not an option!

Then again, sometimes too much information is confusing. Sometimes knowing less, having fewer options is good. Dancers haven’t really changed as much [as some people believe] – even with new training and all the information we get about diet and physical therapy. Dancers will still push too hard, will still get injured. We get clashing advice from nutritionists. We’re always trying to learn from the experts. But, eventually, we go back to our instincts. I’ve learned, after 18 years of gathering information, to eat then check in with my body – how do I feel? I’ve learned to eat whatever makes my body feel good. As a teenager, I was just so confused, overwhelmed by all the information.

2015-01-03-RehGIS.Korbes.cr.AS.jpg

Paloma Herrera, like Körbes, came to New York at a very young age. At 15, she was offered a contract with American Ballet Theatre, and, like Whelan, has spent her entire career with one company.

Even the most jaded ballet-goers rhapsodize over the luxurious unfolding of her leg in développé out of a supported pirouette, and in the articulation of her gloriously arched feet. While her passion onstage has hardly dimmed, she concedes:

It’s a new generation now, especially with the new media. I’ve danced with the most incredible partners, including Angel Corella, Jose Manuel Carreño, and Vladimir Malakhov – I loved that time, it was a golden era.

Now I want to watch ballet from the audience, to join the people who take the time to go to the theatre, to experience live theatre. I don’t feel connected with this generation anymore. People don’t seem to have the time anymore, to meet, to have coffee, to have a conversation over dinner. They walk around but they don’t see things, don’t see the city they live in.

I took chances when I was very young. I was offered a contract with the most wonderful company in the world. I didn’t think too hard about it, made a very quick decision. My parents back in Argentina were incredibly supportive. They gave me so much freedom – that security, knowing you had their love no matter what. But I could never advise anyone else to live their life like I’ve lived mine: 100% in the moment, with no plans for the future, ever. I never thought about what was coming next – I still don’t. Of course I worked really hard and gave my life to dance. You also have to be lucky. Some people have all the talent, but not the passion, or the luck. Some work so hard but simply don’t have the talent. You have to look at your own gift, and your own limitations.

And you need humility. Because ballet is about going back into class every single day, rehearsing everyday, fixing everything – it’s about the working process, not about being a superstar. Some dancers today want to be celebrities. But that is not why I dance. I’m not on Twitter and Facebook, I live in the theatre, on the stage. That’s where the excitement is. No two performances are the same. Even in the same role in the same ballet, night after night, every performance is unique: some are great, some disastrous.

One of my most thrilling experiences was performing at the International Ballet Festival of Havana. Ballet in Cuba is like soccer in Argentina – such a commotion! Naturally it was televised. And the audience knows the choreography by heart – you don’t dare change a step!

Cuba is very much on Xiomara Reyes‘ mind. A tiny dynamo whom Bachtrack describes as “bringing sunshine wherever she goes,” Reyes trained at Cuba’s National Ballet School. For her, the recent defrosting of U.S.-Cuba relations is earthshaking:

Anything that can mend a rip in our world is an Alleluia moment for me. The Cuban soul is very deeply hurt, and I believe it will be a long process of healing. This [announcement] is a step in that direction, I hope. For a Cuban dancer it means the opening of more choice and possibility, and that is of infinite value.

She bids farewell to American Ballet Theatre after 14 years, before which she spent seven years with the Royal Ballet of Flanders. She, too, notes with ambivalence the rise of social media and its impact on the dance world:

With Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other media, dancers have new opportunities to be noticed and, while I think these are wonderful outlets that give more people the opportunity to follow dancers whom they might never see perform live, I also believe it may be overwhelming for a young dancer who is trying to find her own voice. Social media can become a rat race. Dance is not only an external endeavor but also an internal search… Our need for exposure, this thirst for communication and public recognition, has a tendency to push us outward before we work inward.

To a young dancer I would say: be aware of that trap. Take the time to find out what dancing really means to you, how it shapes you as a human being. Nourish yourself with the art you create – explore what that means. And then: dance, live, share!

Recently dubbed by The Washington Post “a font of regal beauty” in the role of fairy queen Titania, Julie Kent will bow out in a final performance of Romeo and Juliet.

Looking back over her 29 seasons with American Ballet Theatre, she marvels at the sweeping social change:

Perestroika. The end of the Cold War. The fall of Communism. The arrival of the Internet, cellular communications, social media and branding. All had great impact on society, the arts, the ballet world.

Because the world is now smaller, Russian dancers no longer have to defect to be seen in the West. Everyone is everywhere, all the time – in reality, and virtually on Facebook. This is not necessarily good or bad: everyone has to understand life is forward-moving. Dancers often look back and think their time was the greatest compared to today – but they think that mainly because they were young then!

It’s more challenging now for a young dancer. They want international careers, so they feel they can’t stay with one company.

Yet some things haven’t changed much for dancers. When I debuted in Swan Lake in 1993 that was one performance, one matinee. My next Swan Lake was a year later, and also just one performance. It’s difficult to develop as a dancer with so few opportunities to tackle the big roles in multiple performances – because the process of learning in the rehearsal studio is different than the process of learning on stage through multiple performances. Talking with Isabella Boylston who debuted as Odette-Odile in 2013, I realize it’s been a similar challenge for her.

It’s a tough balancing act for big companies to give dancers opportunities to grow. Audiences also want to see foreign guest stars – which is exciting for us, too, in the company, but it makes it harder for up-and-coming dancers to develop. I was fortunate to have partners who wanted me to dance with them around the world – Julio Bocca in Argentina, Vladimir Malakhov in Finland, Jose Manuel Carreño in Japan, Roberto Bolle in Italy, etc. So even though I stayed with one company, I had opportunities to perform roles multiple times, and grow in that way.

For younger dancers today, there is also more pressure to be a star. It used to be that people wanted to do something, now they want to be something. “I want to be a principal,” instead of “I want to dance.” But being a star and having a fulfilling career are not always the same thing.

Soon after I was given my corps de ballet contract, I was invited to appear in the movie Dancers, opposite Baryshnikov. After the film came out, I visited Nora Kaye [the former dancer, who collaborated with her husband, director Herbert Ross, on the film] who was on her deathbed in Los Angeles. She said, “You could have a career in film. Are you interested?”

“I want to dance,” I replied. It was so simple – that is what I had wanted to do since I was 7. I always had that sense of purpose, that driving force.

One of my platforms for young people is to focus on the process and the pursuit of excellence, not the destination. The work is our labor and our reward. Once you get where you’re going, it’s over!

What’s next for each of these ballerinas? Ballet to the People wanted to know.

Wendy Whelan will crisscross the country with Restless Creature, a series of contemporary duets by four young choreographers, which premiered at Jacobs Pillow last summer then traveled to the Royal Opera House in London. Restless Creature‘s American tour starts in San Francisco in mid-January and winds up at the Joyce Theatre in New York in May.

A new project with Edward Watson of the Royal Ballet will premiere in London in July. And a third piece of opera/dance theatre is simmering at the Brooklyn Academy of Music: an adaptation of the ancient Japanese Noh drama Hagoromo, about a celestial spirit whose magic power resides in a robe of feathers.

Carla Körbes wraps up a splendidly varied season at PNB this spring then powers on to Vail again this summer. Her knee is getting better, she says, and she’s excited to immerse herself in the festival. What would she like to dance? More Balanchine, if she had her wish! But she is also keen to work with new choreographers, found the experience working with Brian Brooks hugely inspiring.

Retiring at this age, I’m still young and I’m excited. It’s the end of company life for me, which gives me new options, frees me to do other things in the art world. Before I left City Ballet, at a time when I was struggling, I spoke with Eliot Feld, who told me: “Leave when you’re happy.” I never forgot this. I never take any of this for granted.

2015-01-03-KorbesCarlaHS.jpg

Julie Kent will write a memoir, a book which she hopes will reflect her voice as an American dancer, a female artist, a passionate arts advocate, as well as a wife and a mother of two children.

I have expressed myself without words for so long. The life of a ballerina seems so mysterious from afar, but the reality is that there are things that many people from different backgrounds and professions can connect with.

Ballet to the People looks forward to her setting the record straight – after Darren Aronofsky’s blood-and-feathers study in ballerina paranoia, the Black Swan horror flick.

Paloma Herrera bids American audiences Adieu with a final performance as Princess Aurora in Sleeping Beauty in June, but her Argentinian farewell comes later in the year. Globe-trotting balletomanes are prepared to travel long distances to catch her Tatiana in Onegin in October at the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, a dramatic role she has long prized. After her final curtseys, she plans to indulge her love of theatre, of reading, and listening to music.

Ballet has been my bubble, my life, my religion… Now I will enjoy this time in a different way.

2015-01-03-Pherrera.jpg

Xiomara Reyes will dance a final Giselle in May. Reflecting at this crossroad, she knows dance will continue to be an important part of her life:

Dancing has been my life’s journey ever since I can remember. I have found that to stand at the barre every morning is a kind of meditation, a spiritual experience.

I love teaching and sharing with young people the amazing world of ballet, which is why I’ve been co-directing the IBStage program for two years.

I feel like I’m standing in front of this huge buffet of possibilities and I’m taking my time to chose. Not because I don’t like what I see, but because I want to honor my standstill point: that moment where you have to stand still and regroup, before throwing yourself back into the whirlpools of life.

2015-01-03-Xreyes1ff.jpg

Collectively, these five ballerinas have redefined virtuosity and grace for the art form in the 21st century – their natural gifts honed by artistic sensitivity and perseverance. No one is born to be a prima ballerina: it takes extraordinary discipline, acumen and gutsiness.

Will one of them eventually take a leadership role in the ballet world? None of the five appear to have sought it out.

One thing that has not changed over the span of these ballerinas’ careers is the shortage of women at the helm of ballet companies. Karen Kain is now the longest-running incumbent artistic director of a major company, having run the National Ballet of Canada for ten years. Tamara Rojo took over English National Ballet two years ago. When Brigitte Lefèvre retired after a remarkable 19 years of steering Paris Opera Ballet in a bold, new direction, she was succeeded by Benjamin Millepied. In Britain, Monica Mason called the shots at the Royal Ballet for ten years, replaced by Kevin O’Hare in 2012. In America, Lourdes Lopez has been at the head of Miami City Ballet for just two years.

As audiences for live theatre and dance continue to shrink, along with the public and private funding so critical to keeping these companies afloat, can new artistic leadership make a difference? Is it time for a reigning ballerina to be handed the reins?

New PBS Special ‘Extreme Realities’ Explores Security Threat From Climate Change

What kind of new realities will climate change bring this century? The latest episode in the PBS series “Journey to Planet Earth” explores the rising threat of extreme weather and the effects climate change is already having on the geopolitical landscape around the world.

Narrated by Matt Damon, “Extreme Realities: Severe Weather, Climate Change and Our National Security” also features World Bank President Jim Yong Kim, former EPA Administrator Carol Browner, journalist Thomas Friedman and others.

In the clip above, viewers are introduced to the rising tensions on the border between Bangladesh and India. Bangladesh is one of the most vulnerable countries to sea level rise. Climate change, along with economic hardship and other factors, may force an even greater number of Bangladeshis to seek refuge in India.

Unfortunately this problem isn’t limited to the region. It would be “perhaps possible for the international community to deal with” this if it were an isolated incident, Former Assistant Secretary of State Kurt Campbell explains in the video. But “the issues associated with … climate refugees are not going to strike in one place,” he says. “They’re going to strike consequentially around the globe.”

Watch a second exclusive clip below and tune in to PBS at 10 p.m. ET on Monday, December 15 to see the entire hour-long documentary.

A ‘Huge Change’ Is Coming To ‘The Walking Dead’

Warning: “The Walking Dead” spoilers everywhere.

In a preview for the final episodes for Season 5 of “The Walking Dead,” the cast and producers are dropping hints about what to expect. Showrunner Scott Gimple said the second half of the season will have “a huge change for the situation of these characters.” Andrew Lincoln later added, “It feels that we’re moving into a new show.”

Whether it was getting to Terminus or surviving The Governor’s attacks, the characters in the show have always had a central motivation, but with Washington, D.C. revealed to be a bust and everyone moving on from the events at Grady Memorial Hospital, the future of the survivors is really up in the air.

Co-executive producer Denise Huth said the second half of the season is “dark” and “sad,” while Lauren Cohan said Maggie will be dealing with a “dark side” of her own (which actually sounds like good news for “Star Wars” fans waiting on “The Force Awakens“). In any case, it appears Norman Reedus was genuine with his warning to HuffPost Entertainment to “grab your tissues.”

“The Walking Dead” returns February 2015 to AMC.

Jon Stewart Shows Why China Really Needs That Climate Change Deal

Beijing may have been just about the best possible place to unveil a major deal on emissions because as Jon Stewart pointed out on Tuesday night’s “Daily Show,” the city really needs it.

The air quality is so bad that Beijing had to shut down factories and schools to help reduce smog ahead of the APEC summit. And these efforts worked, leading residents to dub the rare clear skies “APEC blue.”

“Well at least residents didn’t flee in fear of the enormous, ‘SKY FIREBALL!'” Stewart joked, referring to the rare glimpse of sunlight.

That wasn’t the only APEC oddity. From “Hunger Games” cosplay to world leaders acting more like “Mean Girls,” Stewart took a look at the summit’s strangest moments.

Young Poet Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner Explains The Essence Of Climate Change At UN Summit

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations,” John F. Kennedy proclaimed in 1964. “When power narrows the areas of man’s concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.”

Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner, a 26-year-old poet from the Marshall Islands, recently demonstrated the impact a poem can have. She spoke during the opening segment of the 2014 United Nations Climate Summit this week. In a piece titled “Dear Matafele Peinem,” she managed to capture the stark reality of climate change in just over three minutes.

The entire poem, and the speech that preceded it, can be heard in the video below.

“To tackle (climate change), we need a radical change of course,” Jetnil-Kijiner explains. “This isn’t easy, I know. It means ending carbon pollution within my lifetime. It means supporting those of us most affected to prepare for unavoidable climate impacts. And it means taking responsibility for irreversible loss and damage caused by greenhouse gas emissions.”

“I ask world leaders to take us all along on your ride,” she added. “We won’t slow you down. We’ll help you win the most important race of all. The race to save humanity.”

Jetnil-Kijiner is a spoken word artist and co-founder of an environmental NGO in the Marshall Islands called Jo-JiKuM. The organization focuses on empowering youth by educating them on the importance of environmentalism and mobilizing them to work toward solutions to climate change issues. She was one of 38 civil society representatives chosen to present at the Summit.

An excerpt from her poem:

hands reaching out, fists raising up, banners unfurling, megaphones booming

and we are canoes blocking coal ships

we are the radiance of solar villages

we are the rich clean soil of the farmer’s past

we are petitions blooming from teenage fingertips

we are families biking, recycling, reusing, engineers dreaming, designing, building, artists painting, dancing, writing

we are spreading the word

and there are thousands out on the street, marching with signs, hand in hand

chanting for change NOW

When Oprah decided to end The Oprah Winfrey Show after 20 years, she received a letter from a 12-year-old boy urging her to reconsider. The boy was Mattie Stepanek, a young poet with a rare form of muscular dystrophy. While countless people tried to get the daytime talk show legend to keep her show on the air, it was Oprah’s good friend Mattie who finally helped persuade her to do so. Watch as Mattie’s mom, Jeni, explains why Mattie and Oprah had a deep connection even before they met.

Working With Gender: Wage Labor And Social Change In Southwestern Nigeria

Working With Gender: Wage Labor And Social Change In Southwestern Nigeria


Lindsay argues that wage labor became gendered as male because of transformations in the labor process, along with the concrete goals and values of individual Nigerian men and women, which were often influenced by indigenous and imported ideas about modernization. This book provides a view of modernization from a Nigerian, working-class perspective. It points to the tensions and engagement between the practical strategies and ideological assumptions of various colonial administrators and African workers.

“Fingerprints” of Climate Change

“Fingerprints” of Climate Change


In recent years an increasing number of studies have been published reporting observations of adapted behaviour and shifting species ranges of plant and animal species due to recent climate warming. Are these `fingerprints’ of climate change? An international conference was organised to bring together scientists from different continents with different expertise but sharing the same issue of climate change impact studies. Ecologists, zoologists, and botanists exchanged and discussed the findings from their individual field of research. The present book is an international collection of biological signs of recent climate warming, neither based only on computer models nor on prediction for the future, but mainly on actually occurring changes in the biosphere such as adapted behaviour or shifts in the ranges of species. `Fingerprints’ of Climate Change presents ecological evidence that organisms are responding to recent global warming. The observed changes may foreshadow the types of impacts likely to become more frequent and widespread with continued warming.
