Kering Negotiating Lease for Saint Laurent’s Future Industrial Complex

SAINT LAURENT’S TUSCAN HUB: Kering is said to be negotiating the lease of a building in Scandicci, outside Florence, for its Saint Laurent brand, according to a note issued by the Italian town’s municipality.
CDP Investimenti, which is part of the Cassa Depositi e Prestiti, a financial company controlled by the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finance, has initiated exclusive negotiations with the French luxury group to lease the Palazzo delle Finanze in Scandicci. The cement, three-story building dates back to the 1991 to 1994 period and covers almost 310,000 square feet. It was meant to house the Center of the Ministry of Finance, but it has never been fully finished or used.
Kering had no comment on Friday.
According to the note, a change of destination of the building has been approved, and it can be recovered and destined to production activities.
Local media speculate that Compagnie Financière Richemont was also eyeing the building and the note, without naming the group, said CDP had received another offer by a company “operating in the luxury sector at an international level.”
Mayor Sandro Fallani said the goal is to “save a neglected [location] and to transform it in a unique development opportunity that would bring employment, excellence

Pedro Almodovar’s’ Julieta’ is a Complex Mother/Daughter Masterpiece

Once again we peer into the cinematic mirror to reflect and better understand the human condition.

2016-12-24-1482599675-9462488-julietaalmodovar.jpg
‘Julieta’ is Pedro Almodovar’s triumphant twentieth foray into feature film making.

The opening scene lingers on a full sized screen of cherry red rhythmically undulating charmeuse, both lustrous and reflective, as if the fabric itself was alive and breathing rather heavily. Will this be one of the bawdy and hilarious wild rides Mr. Almodovar is known for?

The tone quickly changes from sensuality to somber.

The silk is the shirt of a middle aged woman, Julieta, in full tilt relocation mode, as she prepares for her middle essence transformation, taking up life with her new partner in a new country. Overtaken with emotion while carefully packing up table top sculptures of male ceramic nudes in her urbane apartment she takes a break to run errands.

2016-12-24-1482604266-2807723-julietapedroalmodovarjulieta22.jpg
On the street Julieta bumps into childhood friend, Bea, of her estranged daughter, Antia.

We are then pulled into a series of flashbacks as Julieta embarks on a well-known therapeutic exercise in which a person writes a letter to someone they are in conflict with, whether they send it or not.

2016-12-24-1482602699-9986690-julietapedroalmodovar.jpg
These sculptures figure prominently throughout the plot.

2016-12-24-1482600696-1016139-julietapedroalmodovarjulieta28.jpg
Writing a letter, whether it is sent or not, can be therapeutic.

2016-12-24-1482597907-3627067-AliceMunro.jpg
‘Julieta’ is based on three short stories from a collection called, ‘Runaway,’ by the prestigious Mann Booker Prize award winning author, Alice Munro.

The central question at the heart of the film is the mother/daughter rift.

Without giving away too much of the plot, let us just say ‘Julieta’ is a classic story of separation and individuation. Shrouded in secrecy, accurate information about a daughter’s complicated birth story and a trauma that upended what little certainty, happiness and security the family did achieve sets the stage for the surviving parent and child cut off.

From an early age, Antia was acutely aware she was raised in an unconventional way frowned upon by others.

2016-12-24-1482604618-8062772-rsz_still_041024x683.jpg
Young Julieta was gossiped about, but no one was candid with Antia to help clear up misconceptions after life altering disaster struck.

Instead of resolving her grief, Antia was left alone with her thoughts and feelings being raised by a depressed mother, Julieta.

No wonder Antia grew resentful and the strict practice of religion became so attractive to her. Only a devote faith wiped out any doubts and provided answers to confusing questions. From the tender age of 8 or 9, Antia felt horribly guilty for the tragedy that befell the family because she was born, though she was unable to fully articulate this narrative.

2016-12-24-1482598849-7905335-julieta2016014adrianaugartelyingonsofawithgirlreadingvogue.jpg
Children often internalize bad feelings about themselves based upon feeling responsible for the actions of adults when they should not.

Complicated unresolved guilt explains why Antia was ashamed of her upbringing and disowned her mother whom she perceived as unforgivable, even reprehensible.

Without the ability to come clean with the facts or truth, the only route for Antia to launch into adulthood, was to emotionally cut off with her mother. Antia, now a mother of three living in a religious community in Switzerland (we learn from Bea), rejected her mother to become independent and live life on her own terms.

2016-12-24-1482599222-5978460-julietapedroalmodovar.jpg
Antia yearned for a simpler way of life by aligning herself with a religious cult. Prior to that Antia distanced herself from Julieta by bonding with Bea’s classy family, which better suited Antia’s more conservative temperament.

Children always know more than adults give them credit for which is why it is important to be developmentally appropriate while candid and sensitive with children.

Left to their own devices children often get large portions of a story wrong. They need adults to fact check and provide a balanced perspective. As an impressionable youngster, Antia likely perceived more than she was ever told about the circumstances of her birth but did not posses the maturity to make sense of it all without adult supervision that was absent.

Without accurate facts or emotional support the effects of the silence formed by secrets were worse than the facts. Until the real story was told, anxieties showed up as suppressed resentments and fears that overtook the relationship.

It is a triumphant turn of events when Julieta takes on the mission of reuniting with her daughter, whether or not they ultimately reunite.

2016-12-24-1482598568-8013855-ps48otzk.jpg
Interesting to note that Antia disappeared from Julieta’s life, about the same age Julieta was when Antia was conceived.

The daughter’s need to abandon her mother was payback or revenge grown from mistrust that her mother’s past or present behavior would be unacceptable in her repressed, sanitized, and sedate cloistered life. Notice, the film is entitled, ‘Julieta,’ not ‘Antia.‘ The more interesting plot is the plight of the mother who wants to make good on an opportunity to clear up the cold case of her daughter’s disappearance.

The notion of second chances to revive a relationship by going to remarkable lengths to show how much one cares today makes for touching melodrama.

One approaching middle age and the other well into it, mother and daughter could be mature enough to reconcile and be mutually respectful, now that they are less dependent on each other. That would be a victory given they are both seasoned by reflection and refined in their respective particularities. Would they be able to embrace each other’s differences and ultimately renegotiate healthier boundaries?

What about the sensitive and handsome lover Julieta tried to dump without much explanation, as Antia had done to her?

2016-12-24-1482605144-3444973-julietapedroalmodovarjulieta13.jpg
Some might say Julieta would have been better off focusing on her new life with her new lover, rather than trying to rectify the bitterness of the past.

Others might say full healing comes to terms with what ‘is.’ What does it really mean to have it all? This is for you to decide. Art house films of this caliber challenge a viewer and deserve to be seen on the big screen in movie theaters committed to the genre.

Disclaimer Alert: Watching movies is no substitute for therapy, though great films can reveal insights about life. If you or someone you know is suicidal, do not hesitate to reach out to a professional or trusted family member or friend to get needed help.

Justin Bieber Opens Up To Complex Magazine About Being Arrested

Justin Bieber is Complex magazine’s latest cover star.

The 21-year-old, who was photographed by David Black for the mag, opens up about everything from his infamous arrest in Miami to how he deals with all the critics. 

Speaking about that time he urinated in a bucket at a club, the Biebs said, “Honestly, I think the pissing in the bucket wasn’t as big as people made it seem. Just because, dude, think about it. Imagine, you hear that fucking Ozzy Osbourne pisses backstage. Immediately, ‘Oh, he’s a freaking rock star!’ As soon as I do it, ‘He’s being a brat.'” 

He continued, “Dude, what is bratty about pissing in a bucket? I had to go piss — we all have to pee.” He has a point — we all do have to pee, but at least most of us have the decency to do it in a restroom, even if said restroom is on the opposite side of where we are. 

The singer also called out the Miami police (who arrested and charged him for DUI and drag racing last year), saying, “they just wanted press.”

“I never was speeding; I never was drag racing … The cop supposedly wanted to be famous for arresting celebrities, and someone had heard him say that prior to that,” he said. “He was like, ‘Put your hands on the hood!’ I was like, what? I lifted my hands and I was like, ‘What do you mean, what’s going on?’ He was like, “I told you, put your hands on the hood! Now you’re under arrest for resisting arrest!'” 

“I felt it, dude. I was just like, Oh, they’re trying to get me right now at any cost. I went in, and I’m telling you, that 24 hours sucked. It was really cold. That was the worst part.” Poor Biebs.

Royalties of the sale of this book go towards supporting children in South Africa” This book is organised into four parts that are interrelated as a thread that runs through my 70 year life as a person, and as a researcher on topics that are dealt with in the corresponding parts in the body of this book. I do not claim any exclusivity to any of these learnings that have been researched and published by me, as can be seen at the end of the book under Bibliography, but put them at the service of the readers that they may apply them and add value to their own lives and business scenarios. I also stress the importance of cultural beliefs and gender issues, as they are key to effective communication and peace. Part 1 traces my life in Spain during the Civil War and World War 2 at Rio Tinto and my schooling at Stonyhurst College a traditional Catholic school. I married in Malta and had two children. This ended in separation and divorce leading to my living apart from my children for 20 years. The scenario of my family in South Africa outlines the marriage and establishment of a peaceful and secure home environment and eventually being reunited with the family in Malta. Part 2 describes my 50 year career in brewing industry with experiences in Malta, Denmark, India, USA, Canada, Spain, China – Hong Kong, Mozambique and South Africa. The political changes in South Africa in 1994 brought with it many challenges to integrate the previously disadvantaged majority of people into equal living, working and educational standards and conditions. Business travel to various parts of the world required ongoing communication with local and business people to forge relationships that have lasted over the years. Part 3 deals with the social, religious and political scenarios in Spain, during the Civil War and World War 2, in India and in South Africa, and how these effected the working environments. Part 4.

The Making of the Cold War Enemy: Culture and Politics in the Military-Intellectual Complex

The Making of the Cold War Enemy: Culture and Politics in the Military-Intellectual Complex


At the height of the Cold War, the U.S. government enlisted the aid of a select group of psychologists, sociologists, and political scientists to blueprint enemy behavior. Not only did these academics bring sophisticated concepts to what became a project of demonizing communist societies, but they influenced decision-making in the map rooms, prison camps, and battlefields of the Korean War and in Vietnam. With verve and insight, Ron Robin tells the intriguing story of the rise of behavioral scientists in government and how their potentially dangerous, “American” assumptions about human behavior would shape U.S. views of domestic disturbances and insurgencies in Third World countries for decades to come. Based at government-funded think tanks, the experts devised provocative solutions for key Cold War dilemmas, including psychological warfare projects, negotiation strategies during the Korean armistice, and morale studies in the Vietnam era. Robin examines factors that shaped the scientists’ thinking and explores their psycho-cultural and rational choice explanations for enemy behavior. He reveals how the academics’ intolerance for complexity ultimately reduced the nation’s adversaries to borderline psychotics, ignored revolutionary social shifts in post-World War II Asia, and promoted the notion of a maniacal threat facing the United States. Putting the issue of scientific validity aside, Robin presents the first extensive analysis of the intellectual underpinnings of Cold War behavioral sciences in a book that will be indispensable reading for anyone interested in the era and its legacy.

The State of Copyright: The Complex Relationships of Cultural Creation in a Globalized World

The State of Copyright: The Complex Relationships of Cultural Creation in a Globalized World


This book seeks to make an intervention into the ongoing debate about the scope and intensity of global copyright laws. While mapping out the primary actors in the context of globalization and the modern political economy of information ownership, the argument is made that alternatives to further expansion of copyright are necessary. By examining the multiple and competing interests in creating the legal regime of copyright law, this books attempts to map the political economy of copyright in the information age, critique the concentration of ownership that is intrinsic in the status quo, and provide an assessment of the state of the contemporary global copyright landscape and its futures. It draws upon the current narratives of copyright as produced by corporate, government, and political actors and frames these narratives as language games within a global political project to define how information and culture will be shared and exchanged in the future. The text problematizes the relationship of the state to culture, comments on the global flows of culture, and critiques the regulatory apparatus that is in place to commodify culture and align it with the contemporary nation-state. In the end, the possibility of non-commodified and more open futures are explored. The State of Copyright will be of particular interest for students and scholars of international political economy, law, political science, anthropology, sociology, cultural studies, library sciences, and communication studies. It also will appeal to a growing popular audience that has taken an interest in the issues of copyright.

Rigorous Reading: 5 Access Points for Comprehending Complex Texts


What it really means to “read closely.” What could Fern Arable, Jay Gatsby, and Winston Churchill possibly have in common? They all need masterful teachers to help students revel in their complexity.
