A Beginner’s Guide To Isabelle Huppert

If anyone scores Best Actress over front-runner Emma Stone at Sunday’s Oscars, it’ll probably be 63-year-old “Elle” star Isabelle Huppert. For some at home, it would make for the night’s most exciting moment. For others, it’ll incite a shrug and a big ol’ “Who?!” 

If you’re in the latter camp, I’m here to help. It’s high time you know that Isabelle Huppert is a certified legend. 

She’s France’s most decorated actress.

Huppert has more nominations (16) from the César Awards, France’s equivalent of the Oscars, than any other actress. (One more and she’ll tie record holder Gérard Depardieu, her co-star from 1974’s “Going Places,” 1980’s “Loulou” and 2015’s “Valley of Love.”) Phrased differently, Huppert is France’s Meryl Streep. 

Really, Huppert and Streep have little in common apart from their prestige. Where Streep often plays outsized characters, Huppert is an actress of small proportions ― her performances are relatively restrained, even minimalistic. Roger Ebert described her characters as “repressed, closed-off, sexually alert women” who are “not safe to scorn.” 

Despite her 45-year movie career and 46-year theater career, this is Huppert’s first Oscar nomination. For fans, a win would double as a de facto lifetime achievement recognition. 

“Doing movies for me is like a vacation,” Huppert said in 2014. “Stage for me is like climbing a big mountain, and movies for me is like doing a nice little walk.”

One of her movies caused a minor firestorm last year.

In “Elle,” Huppert plays a video-game executive who refuses to grieve after being raped in the film’s opening scene. Instead, she turns the assault into a game of cat and mouse, luring her attacker into a seductive power play. That’s angered some critics and moviegoers, particularly women, who feel the character’s response is a disservice to rape victims. Huppert disagrees. 

“She does not fall into the caricature of the classical vengeful woman taking the gun and shooting the guy, the James Bond type,” Huppert told me last October during the New York Film Festival. “Maybe that’s what certain persons would expect from her, but then that would follow precisely a male pattern. That’s why I would call her a postfeminist character, making her own way. … In a way, it is a revenge film. … It’s like giving birth to a new prototype of a woman. Of course it’s a fiction character and it’s certainly not someone you would meet walking in the subway, meaning it’s not a completely realistic character. But it’s a very, very special character. Even in fiction, you’ve never seen someone like her.”

Huppert is even more subdued in her second movie of 2016, “Things to Come,” portraying a philosopher facing professional setbacks and an impending divorce. 

“As a performer, it’s my natural instinct to put this kind of irony, no matter what I do,” she said when discussing the film. “It certainly also avoids any sentimentality or sentimentalism or psychological heaviness.” 

She’s worked with great directors on both sides of the pond. 

For “Elle,” Huppert partnered with Paul Verhoeven, the Dutch shlock master known for “Total Recall,” “Basic Instinct” and “Showgirls.” Verhoeven is the latest in a long line of veteran filmmakers who have sought out Huppert’s enigmatic screen presence. 

Early in her career, Huppert was associated with masters of the French New Wave, a group of socially conscious filmmakers who introduced open-ended narrative structures and radical techniques in the 1950s and ‘60s. After breaking out with 1977’s “The Lacemaker,” which earned her BAFTA’s Most Promising Newcomer prize, Huppert won the Cannes Film Festival’s best actress accolade for playing a nefarious 18-year-old sex worker in “Violette Nozière.” That marked the first of Huppert’s seven collaborations with director Claude Chabrol, a father of the French New Wave movement. 

Huppert would soon work with Jean-Luc Godard, another French New Wave pioneer, on 1980’s “Every Man for Himself” and 1982’s “Passion.” In between, Huppert’s American debut, the nearly four-hour western “Heaven’s Gate,” became one of the most controversial projects of all time when it effectively bankrupted United Artists. Hot off the Oscar-winning Vietnam War epic “The Deer Hunter,” director Michael Cimino insisted on casting Huppert despite studio executives’ protests that she was “too French” and “simply wrong.” In his 1999 book about the “Heaven’s Gate” debacle, former United Artists honcho Stephen Bach wrote that he told Cimino, “For Christ’s sake, Michael. [Kris Kristofferson] and [Christopher Walken] are so much more attractive than she is that the audience will spend the entire film wondering why they’re fucking her instead of each other!” Cimino then run amok with the budget, calling for elaborate set designs and extensive reshoots. The movie bombed, earning $ 3.5 million domestically off an estimated $ 44 million budget. Suffering financial loss as a result, UA was sold to a private investment corporation and acquired by MGM in 1981.

The 1987 drama “Story of Women” is one of Huppert’s most distinguished performances. The movie, a favorite of John Waters, tells the true story of Marie-Louise Giraud, a meager housewife who was guillotined in Nazi-occupied France for performing abortions. It earned a Golden Globe nod for Best Foreign Language Film, and Huppert picked up the Venice Film Festival’s best actress honor.

In 1995, after seven losses, Huppert won her first ― and, to date, only ― César Award, for the Chabrol-directed crime mystery “La Cérémonie.” The true story on which it’s based ― two maids who murdered their employer in 1933 France ― was also the source of a 1947 play by Jean Genet, a 2013 revival of which starred Huppert, Cate Blanchett and Elizabeth Debicki.

The 2000s and 2010s have brought about some of Huppert’s most acclaimed parts, namely Michael Haneke’s erotic thriller “The Piano Teacher” (often cited as her finest performance), David O. Russell’s quirky existential dramedy “I Heart Huckabees,” and supporting spots in Haneke’s old-age romance “Amour” and Ned Benson’s dual-perspective relationship drama “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby.” 

She also starred on an episode of “Law and Order: SVU.”

Playing a mother whose kidnapped son dies, Huppert goes bonkers on Mariska Hargitay. Exemplifying America’s disregard, NBC’s promo for the 2010 episode touts Sharon Stone as a guest star, but not Huppert.

We don’t know much about Huppert’s personal life.

Here’s something else Huppert has in common with Meryl Streep: Both have children from long marriages ― Huppert’s dates back to 1982, and Streep’s to 1978. Beyond that, we don’t know a ton of gossip about either, which contributes to their indestructible statures in the film world. 

Huppert has three children, including actress Lolita Chammah. They starred together in the 2010 comedy “Copacabana.” Her husband, the Lebanon-born Ronald Chammah, directed Huppert in 1988’s “Milan Noir.”

Critical appraisals have always been glowing, often noting her alluring inscrutability as an actress.

“As in everything else she is called upon to do in this film, Isabelle Huppert shows herself to be a superb actress, able to convey in every gesture, in every utterance and facial expression, that special combination of passivity and violence that is the essential mark of Violette’s personality. So persuasive is her performance of this role that even in those moments when she is most nakedly wicked, she continues to puzzle and even enchant us with her air of innocence and indifference.” ― The New York Times, on “Violette Nozière” (1978)

“It is the unique ability of Isabelle Huppert to betray almost nothing to the camera, when she chooses to. Some of the best moments in her performances come when she regards the camera as if daring us to guess what she is thinking.” ― Robert Ebert, on “Story of Women” (1990)

“Like Jennifer Jason Leigh, Huppert isn’t afraid to play nasty, unattractive women, and she doesn’t balance her character’s evil with sympathetic, mitigating qualities that would make us pity her. … Even as the film builds to a shocking, kick-in-the-guts finale, Huppert never shirks from her sinister goal, never betrays a glimmer of goodness.” ― The San Francisco Chronicle, on “La Cérémonie” (1997)

“Isabelle Huppert gives the performance of her career as Professor Erika Kohut, a distinguished piano teacher and Schubert scholar at the Vienna Conservatory. She is brilliant, demanding, unsmiling.” ― The Guardian, on “The Piano Teacher” (2001)

“This makes Pascale yet another choice role for Ms. Huppert, a hypnotically controlled actress who has become more implacably mysterious as she has gotten older. Her characters never plead for our sympathy or understanding. … She remains one of the most sensual and erotic presences in the cinema, despite a persistent inscrutability of expression.” ― The New York Observer, on “Private Property” (2007)

“One of the most daring and assured of film actresses, Huppert embraces the aloneness, foreignness and impudence of her characters.” ― The Los Angeles Times, on “In Another Country” (2013)

“Though she appears in the fewest scenes, Isabelle Huppert provides the movie with its emotional foundation. … After a prolonged discussion of her troubled double-life, the director cuts to an extreme close-up of her face and holds the shot for close to half a minute, the ambiguity registering on her face speaking volumes about the speculative nature of the plot.” ― IndieWire, on “Louder Than Bombs” (2015)

“To follow the arc described by Isabelle Huppert, for instance, from her breakout role, in ‘The Lacemaker’ (1977), to her new movie, ‘Elle,’ is to ask yourself, year after year, how someone so at ease with the blazing extremes of emotion can also prove so adept at preserving her cool. It is as if she were guarding secrets that no plot can plumb. Who else can match that mystery?” ― The New Yorker, on “Elle” (2016)

She’s meme-worthy.

A Guide To Sturgill Simpson, The Grammy Nominee Up Against Beyoncé And Adele

Sturgill Simpson may not be a household name, but the 38-year-old singer will compete Sunday in the coveted Album of the Year category at the Grammy Awards ― against many of the world’s biggest stars.

Simpson’s third solo studio effort, “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth,” is up against mainstream heavy-hitters: Beyoncé’s “Lemonade,” Adele’s “25,” Justin Bieber’s “Purpose” and Drake’s “Views.”

Even Simpson himself was surprised when the nominations came out in December, telling the Los Angeles Times, “In terms of what happened today, this never even crossed my mind. When we came off the road at Thanksgiving, I really thought, ‘Well, that’s it for this one. We’ve done everything,’ and I started thinking about what to do for the next record. This has all been slightly surreal to say the least.”

Surreal, indeed.

Read on for more about the man behind “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth.”

This isn’t Simpson’s first rodeo. 

His sophomore album, 2014’s “Metamodern Sounds in Country Music,” received a Grammy nomination for Best Americana Album. It also became a critics’ darling, ranking on Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Albums of 2014 list. 

Before going solo, Simpson played in a bluegrass band called Sunday Valley. The group released an EP in 2004 and made an appearance at the Pickathon Festival in Portland, Oregon. But they didn’t get too far, Simpson says. “We couldn’t travel because the bass player had a great gig with the fire department,” he told Rolling Stone.

Simpson comes from a family of coal miners. 

Born in Jackson, Kentucky, Simpson grew up listening to music. His grandmother had 45s by Otis Redding and Sam and Dave, and his older cousin introduced him to the likes of Cream and Jimi Hendrix. 

“I was the first male in my mother’s family not to work the mines,” he told Rolling Stone. “Mom was a secretary, Dad was a state cop. We lived in a prefab house just off the highway. When I was in second grade, we moved to Versailles, just outside Lexington.”

He has a wide range of musical influences.

David Bowie, Nirvana, Sly and the Family Stone, Bill Withers, Marvin Gaye, Pink Floyd, George Harrison, Curtis Mayfield and T Rex all inspired Simpson’s latest album. You can add Walt Disney to that list, too. “Those old-school Disney movies with the symphonies and strings are great!” he told American Songwriter. It’s no wonder. Simpson says he’s been watching old Disney movies with his son, who was born in June 2014.

He’s a former U.S. Navy sailor.

The Kentucky-born singer made an on-the-spot decision to enlist in the Navy. 

“I walked in, looked around, and the Navy recruiter was a really hot brunette, so I signed up with her,” Simpson told Garden and Gun.  

Simpson spent time doing service in Japan and Southeast Asia. But the three-year stint eventually came to an end.

“I wasn’t very good at taking orders,” he admitted.  

Simpson’s wife encouraged him to get serious about music.

Music faded into the background, when in 2006, Simpson decided to take a job working at a Salt Lake City railroad freight-shipping yard for the Union Pacific Railroad. After four years, his girlfriend (now wife) urged Simpson to pick up the guitar again. 

“My wife was a big catalyst for the move to Nashville. I had started really seriously writing for the first time in years and playing at home a bit,” he told Fader. “She said ‘You don’t exactly suck at this. You should know that you tried before you wake up at 40 and I’m stuck with your ass all miserable.’”

It’s a good thing Simpson gave music another go. No longer miserable, Simpson has carved out a musical career for himself. He’s also up for Best Country Album on Sunday ― and will perform on the Grammys stage, possibly inching closer to becoming a household name.

Raw Food Diet: The Complete Guide for Every Meal of the Day Including Special Recipes of Raw Food Detox for Healthy Rapid Weight Loss and Vitality Today!


Let’s face it, it does not take rocket science to know that cooking kind of destroys a number of vitamins and nutrients that are naturally contained in several food items! This simply means that if your aim is to feed your body with the right amount of vitamins and nutrients, then you ought to look in the direction of eating more of your food in the raw state. Yes, you will automatically begin to feed your body with the real deal immediately you quit cooking every of your food items and start consuming them in their raw state. Do you know that a cooked carrot, for instance, cannot give the same amount of nutrient when compared with uncooked carrot? The truth is that an uncooked carrot is tremendously more nutrition than a cooked carrot. Well, besides that, another thing that cooking does is to change or alter the natural chemistry of food items, thus, making them rather more difficult to digest. This invariably explains why there are loads of digestive issues in this country! The fact that civilization brought along its own vices cannot be over emphasized as we know that primitive men did not go about eating cooked or processed food items. And guess what… no wonder they had longevity! But the truth is that when we consume cooked foods, what we are actually doing is that we are introducing foods into our body organs in a format that is alien to our original design. Yes, the way our organs were designed to absorb these foods is not in the cooked form. Therefore, consuming fresh produce, which are high in water content and high fiber food items have been known to stamp out constipation either of the cells, circulatory systems or bowels. Besides that, it also clears obstructions, thus aiding blood flow increase into every single cell in the body. This is significant for the fact that blood is known to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the cells while carrying away toxic wastes from the cells. Yet, another reason why anyone should consider raw food diet is the fact that ob

A Guide To Feminist Swag That Gives Back To Planned Parenthood

Republicans have confirmed that they are once again coming after Planned Parenthood, pledging to strip federal funding for the health care institution as part of their effort to repeal Obamacare. It’s a move that would disproportionately affect low-income women, as the organization receives most of its federal funding through Medicaid ― and it could go into effect as early as next month

There are a lot of ways to push back, like donating, calling your elected officials or volunteering. There’s also the option of buying swag that gives back.

Will it end the crusade against Planned Parenthood and ensure more than 2 million people a year don’t lose access to essential services? Nope. Is it just one more small way to push back against a GOP that is hellbent on stripping away women’s access to affordable healthcare? Why, yes it is! So get shopping.

Gout Diet: The Simple Comprehensive Guide for Gout Treatment Today Including Home Remedies for Gout Cure and the Foods to Avoid With Gout!


Without a shred of doubt, I can say you have heard about gout as a disease of kings but the truth is that the rich and famous are not the only ones who can suffer from this potentially debilitating disease! As a matter of fact, gout can affect anyone at any age. However, there are more male gout patients than female ones. The initial attack typically manifests in the big toe and it can last for several days. Even without the help of any gout treatment, symptoms can eventually disappear and the attack may not happen again in weeks, months or years. It is also possible that you will not experience a gout attack ever again. This disease is often believed to be caused by an inherited abnormality, causing the body to inefficiently process uric acid. As a matter of fact, studies have shown that too much intake of purine-rich foods can further elevate uric acid levels in the body. In severe cases, recurring gout attacks over an extended period can cause damage to your joints and might even lead you to losing mobility. Yes, while gout pain and other symptoms can disappear without the use of any form of treatment, it still helps that you become aware of the common methods for gout treatment so you can keep yourself from being seriously affected by this awful disease. Treatments for gout are often aimed at putting an end to gout attacks. Besides that, they are also meant to reduce or eliminate out rightly the pain and inflammation in a fast and safe way. Moreover, treatments for gout are also often resorted to help prevent future attacks and to keep patients from having to suffer from its many complications, including the development of tophi, formation of kidney stones, and destruction of the joints. Now, while gout can often be treated successfully and without encountering any severe complication, the truth is that, gout treatment can often become a challenge if the patient is suffering from other conditions along with it.

Special Tip Update!

TOP NEW YEAR’S RESOLU-SHUNS: The People’s Guide.

2017 is finally here. Thank goodness 2016 is finally over. No matter who you supported, the election was brutal, scandalous and seemed to consume any and all news coverage in 2016. The only time we seemed to get a break from it was when yet another celebrity was taken from us. It just seemed like a train wreck of endless tragedy up until the very end of the year. Speaking of celebrities-has anyone checked on Betty White and Keith Richards? We need an update on their vitals-STAT!

In light of a ridiculously tough year in 2016 and a new incoming administration, I think it might be time to lighten up a little and give ourselves a little bit of a break.

We all love Christmas, but some of us can tend to get a little carried away with it. Some of our traditions may not make the most sense, but it is what it is:

First thing we need to do is get those holiday decorations down. If you have a family to help, a hearty team effort can get the job done fairly quickly. If you live alone, your 17 cats staring at you condescendingly will inspire you eventually to remove the festive fodder from your residence. Of course, some of us may need to rid ourselves of more than a dead tree…

Of course, lighter fluid and a match will always do the trick if you don’t mind living in your car until the insurance pays. I don’t recommend this, but to each his own.

For some, removing decorations immediately after the holidays may be a more difficult task than for the rest of us.

Now that the decorations are out of the way or at least unplugged if you leave them up all year, let’s move on to those onerous New Year’s Resolutions. This year, we need some positivity so let’s set some attainable goals.

1) NO GOALS: One sure fire way to avoid failing our New Year’s Resolutions is by not setting any. This is my favorite way to go about it, but unfortunately it leaves us nothing to brag about on Facebook. Social Media showmanship and validation from people that barely care about us seems all the rage these days, so let’s set some doable targets:

2) SURVIVAL GOALS: I think one of the greatest achievements we can accomplish in 2017 is to simply survive it. Lots of folks didn’t make it through 2016, so in 2017 survival seems like a rational goal. Of course, you could just stay in bed and never go outside. Staying indoors while limiting my interactions with people is my favorite way to survive 2017 but there’s that money thing, mean people that want rent-oh, and family. Whatever you do, if you can still fog a mirror by January 1, 2018-you’re winning!

3) HEALTH GOALS: Some of us like to set health goals. Your health is important, but let’s not get carried away.

For me, a gym membership is just a great way to pay a fat tax. I take my walk of shame once a year to renew my membership and pick up my new membership card which I flash to the do-gooders throughout the year to let them know that I may be tubby, but I’m trying. You may want to take a look at some of these places people are calling ‘gyms’ now. I’ve found a few ‘gyms’ that offer free wifi, free coffee, free cable and even pizza and bagels on certain days for as little as $ 10.00 a month! Seriously people? Is this a resort or a gym? That sounds like a health plan I can live with! This is my type of workout:

The only negative to a gym membership is the cost and that you’ll have to deal with the die hards that actually use the equipment-bless their hearts. Other than dealing with the crazy folks that are actually sweating in the gym, it’s really not a bad deal!
If you are not a people person or the cost of the gym membership is too much, you can always buy a Fitbit…all the cool kids are doing it! For me a Fitbit is just a measure of disappointment because I can barely walk 10,000 steps in a week-let alone a day. Don’t worry though, where there’s a will-there’s a way:

Going on a diet can be a good thing and a lot of people try it. Of course there are a plethora of fads to try, so enjoy torturing yourself with these less than civil methods. I love the names they give these diets- ‘South Beach’, ‘Whole 30’ or the ‘Paleo’ Diet. I think it’s interesting to note there are no Paleolithic people alive today, so the diet they were on must not have been too fantastic. I’m pretty sure a Paleolithic Neanderthal alive today would eat a steady stream of doughnuts, cupcakes & pie-so yeah, I’ll try your silly diet. Maybe I’ll consider this diet more the next time I want to wear a burlap sack, grunt, poop in the woods, start a fire with sticks, drag people around by their hair after clubbing them to death and live a miserable life in general. After all, the most effective diet is death.

4) SCREEN GOALS: Many people want to spend less time in front of computer screens and more time outside. All I have to say about that is HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Have you seen outside recently? There are people out there! It’s scary! Seriously, this is a great goal and I think you could accomplish this for 24 hours…maybe if you’re sleeping for least 12 of those 24 hours.

Either way, good luck with staying off your phone. If you’re in denial and think it’s still possible, you’re probably the one that calls instead of texts and leaves lengthy voicemail messages-it’s ok though, we still love you. The rest of us want to set attainable goals, and this clearly is not attainable.

5) RELATIONSHIP GOALS: Some folks like to set their dating goals rather high.

Congrats if you can attain those lofty ambitions, but I’d recommend something more reasonable. For starters, let’s try to find somewhere to ring in the New Year instead of our mother’s basement this time around….

Maybe you can meet some new people to talk with that have different opinions than the cats in your mom’s basement. Who knows-whether it’s you or the liquid courage talking, your chances of finding a date increase exponentially when you’re not alone in a basement. If you’re not looking for a serious relationship, it’s always nice to have some friends other than a herd of feral, feisty felines. This may require putting your phone down and speaking to a real life human every once in a while. I know, I know-it’s a dreadful thought, but eventually you might get enough friends to establish a squad who would love to sit in the basement and stare at their phones in silence with you. Wherever you go, just check before you go to make sure they have the following things to ensure you’ll have a good time:

A. Free WiFi
B. Cheetos
C. Your favorite beverage
D. A charger for your phone
E. A dog to pet and chill with because sometimes people are stupid

Whatever you decide to do, please have a safe and Happy New Year! Love others, put a smile on that face and give 2017 all you’ve got!

Celebratory Pro Tip: If you think you may not be able to control your intake of ‘festivities’, it would probably be a good idea to leave the cameras at home…

Barefoot Running: Super Resource Guide


1. Run barefoot. People have actually run barefoot for millions of years. New research by Daniel Lieberman shows that there are vital differences in foot strike when running barefoot versus in footwears. Lots of people who have really thought that running was drudgery in footwears have really uncovered that they may run barefoot and pain-free. Though insignificant running footwears are presently becoming famous, running in a marginal shoe is not anywhere the specific same as running barefoot. When an individual establishes a suitable barefoot stride, then they can discover to run in footwears “as if” they were barefoot. 2. Work on natural areas. People have really run on tracks for millions of years. This jagged, rocky location is the very best jogging surface for a lot of reasons. Mainly, operating on a blotchy area creates the body to spread out the number over the foot and also to lower vertical effect. 3. Run with ideal layout.

Your Guilt-Free Guide To Last-Minute Holiday Shopping That Won’t Kill The Rainforest

By Philip Rothrock
This story is cross-posted on Ecosystem Marketplace

Have you seen Gucci’s retro “Jackie” bags, patterned after one of Jackie Kennedy’s favorites?

They’re not only lovely, but they’re made of “deforestation-free” leather.

That’s a pretty big deal, because cattle ranchers are chopping forests by the football field to produce beef and leather, which is one reason agriculture generates almost 30% of all greenhouse-gas emissions worldwide.

In the past decade, scores of companies have committed to delivering “deforestation-free” leather, and some are already making good on their promises, while others seem to be making an honest effort to do so.

But there’s a new front opening, as Canadian boutique owner Cathy Reid recently found after receiving a holiday shipment of nightgowns.

“Some of the nighties are classic cotton flannel,” she wrote on her blog. “Others are silky fabrics, soft and cozy, perfect for the cooler nights in November.”

But then a customer read the label, and found they contained something called “rayon“, which Reid soon learned is a “cellulosic fiber” made of trees.

Such fibers are more common than you’d think, and they’re supposed to be more environmentally-friendly than cotton, that ravenous vampire plant that sucks the life out of soil.

That eco-friendliness, however, is questionable – and you, as a conscientious consumer, have the power to find the answers.
2016-12-18-1482072520-1389589-TimberPulp.PNG

Seven companies have committed to improve their sourcing of wood fibers for fabrics, but none have reported progress. Here is how that’s reflected in one Supply Change profile.

The “Big Four” Deforestation Commodities

Logging for timber and pulp – which includes cellulosic fibers – is the third-leading driver of deforestation around the world, and cattle ranching – which generates leather – is number one. These, together with soy and palm, comprise the “big four” forest risk commodities responsible for most of the world’s tropical deforestation – and until recently, it was nearly impossible to know if your holiday shopping was contributing to the problem.

That started to change when manufacturers like New Balance and Louis Vuitton, as well as retailers like Inditex/Zara and C&A, started promising to chop deforestation from key commodity supply chains. Then NGOs like CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) started rating companies based on their commitments. Last year, the Forest Trend’s Supply Change project started tracking the progress that companies report toward achieving those commitments – providing in the process a fascinating glimpse into the complex, interlocking global supply chains that stretch around the world, involving cattlemen and loggers, as well as subsistence farmers and indigenous people who harvest the commodities we buy as leather, linen, and lipstick.

Keeping Tabs

Supply Change monitors hundreds of companies from around the world and across the industrial spectrum, but just 26 of these are shoe and apparel companies, and only 22 of these have promised to reduce their impact on the world’s rainforests.

That’s roughly 85% of the companies profiled by Supply Change in this sector, and almost all of those have made more than one promise – meaning that the 22 companies have generated more than 40 pledges.

Good – right?

Kind of.

Fourteen of those pledges apply to packaging – which many companies (and everyone who recycles) has committed to doing right – while just seven of them apply to clothing made with wood fiber fabrics.

By contrast, 16 apply to leather.

Those differences are no coincidence: environmentalists have been campaigning for recycled packaging since the 1960s, and many are just now waking up to cellulosic fibers. Things can, however, move fast – as we learned with leather.

2016-12-18-1482072780-4508714-DCShop.jpg

Responding to the Critics

In 2009, Greenpeace built a campaign around evidence connecting deforestation in the Amazon with cattle products sold to many large public-facing brands. This set off a ripple effect among buyers and suppliers alike, and New Balance immediately committed to stop buying shoe-leather from suppliers in the Amazon biome. ASOS, Coach and Eram Group followed a few years later.

On the cellulosic fiber front, an NGO called Canopy launched the Fashion Loved by Forests campaign, and scores of retailers and manufactures vowed to steer clear of wood products from ancient and endangered forests.

Those consumer-facing companies, however, are at the mercy of suppliers, and Canopy says that the ten largest suppliers, responsible for about 75% of global supply, are just beginning to set and implement their own sustainability commitments. Fortunately, the two largest, Aditya Birla and Lenzing, are close to wrapping up their first desktop audits of global operations. They make up around 35% of global supply and received highest scores in Canopy’s first update on viscose producers and forests.

Frustratingly, companies are only reporting progress on about half of commitments for companies in every sector tracked by Supply Change, and clothing retailer Inditex/Zara is one of those that hasn’t reported any measurable progress on its clothing commitment so far – perhaps because it’s waiting for suppliers (like Lenzing) to provide traceability.

The Design Cycle

When clothing companies decide to purge deforestation from their supply chains, they face the same challenge that we, as individuals do: namely, where to begin? After all, very few apparel companies produce their own raw materials. Instead, they’re consumers themselves, and they tend to go through predictable stages of improvement.

First, they promise something along the lines of making sure that all of their leather is “deforestation-free” by 2020.

Then they scramble to find out where in the world their leather comes from – which involves mapping transactions between ranchers, slaughter houses, packing companies and finally traders.

At that point, they usually examine three strategies: move forward by avoiding purchases from high-deforestation areas, help iffy suppliers improve their practices, and/or look for alternate materials.

Each of these approaches break down further – some companies aim to restructure their entire supply chains, one supplier at a time, while others turn to existing certification programs. Stella McCartney brand products even use vegan leather.

A disturbing number, however simply go silent – and, indeed, of the 24 wood-related commitments tracked by Supply Change, only 11 have any reported progress. On the leather front, progress reports are available on 12 of 16 commitments.

Once they implement a strategy, they establish procedures for monitoring progress; and – if they’re serious – they look for independent third parties who can do it for them.

Tracing the Lace

Many companies, erring on the side of caution, only make commitments they’re confident they can achieve – like making sure commodities are traceable to the region, mill or tannery they came from, and ideally to the ranch or plantation. Even that, however, can be a monumental task.

Most of the apparel companies Supply Change tracks do intend to trace their leather supply, and a few, like

New Balance and Coach,   require all their suppliers to submit signed assurances that their cattle doesn’t come from the Amazon. Coach says its suppliers have done so.

Similarly, H&M requires signed partner agreements to ensure compliance with its Business Partner requirements for both its wood and leather commitments, and its going one step further for its commitment on cellulosic fiber by working with suppliers to make their own CanopyStyle Pledges.

That raises another question: can the suppliers be trusted?

Meeting the Dress Code

Scores of companies are embedding environmental and social issues into their procurement guidelines, and some – like Adidas – are hiring third parties to audit all direct suppliers and making it clear that non-compliance could terminate the contract. A few, like Puma (owned by retail giant Kering) are even providing funds to help suppliers meet their environmental standards.

Puma also publicly lists its top-tier suppliers, while multi-stakeholder initiatives like SEDEX, CERES, CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project), and IDH Sustainable Trade Initiative aim to help companies find meaningful ways of engaging their suppliers on a range of environmental issues and increasingly land use management.

Other initiatives go even further – and do so in ways that promote real change on the ground.

It’s Fashionable to be Certified

When companies abandon high-risk areas, they often fix their own problem but drive poverty and desperation in the places left behind, according to Rosa Maria Vidal of the Governors’ Climate and Forests Fund.

Certification programs, on the other hand, promote sustainable resource management by ensuring companies maintain minimum environmental and social industry standards.

Roughly 20% of all wood products are certified under either the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or Program for the Enforcement of Forest Certification, but certification efforts only began to seriously consider woof fabrics

three years ago. As we saw earlier, only seven companies have committed to sustainably source wood fibers embedded in their clothes, and none of them have reported progress.

In leather, the certification of choice is the Leather Working Group (LWG), which audits companies to make sure their leather isn’t associated with deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon biome – making them, in essence, an audited version of the independent commitments made by New Balance, Coach, Eram Group and ASOS. Roughly half of all leather commitments are tied to the LWG, which has already audited more than 14% of leather production.

All of the companies building pledges on LWG certification are reporting progress, ranging from 15% for H&M to around 100% for Nike and Timberland.

These consumer-facing companies rely on LWG-certified tanneries like Couro do Norte, which in turn use lists of bad actors published daily by government agencies and non-profits to keep suppliers honest.

Brazil’s three largest meatpackers – JBS, Marfrig, and Minerva – also supply the leather sector, and they use the same monitoring systems while also publishing third-party audits of their procurement.

All of these efforts are helping to push these hidden supply chains out into the open, across all commodities, so that – hopefully – products like Gucci’s bag will become the norm rather than the exception that proves the rule.

What Can I Do?

Until that day arrives, you can follow the example set by Cathy Reid’s inquisitive customer and ask your own retailers where their clothes come from. Most probably won’t be able to answer, but those questions do filter up. Here’s a list to get you started:

  • Do any of your clothes contain cellulosic fiber or leather? Are there non-leather and cellulosic fiber alternatives?
  • Where does the leather for your purses, jackets, shoes, wallets, come from?
  • How about the forest fibers? Beware, many leather items say made in Italy or China, but this refers to where the products are manufactured, the cows may still be raised in the Amazon or other threatened landscapes.
  • Does your company have a zero deforestation policy(ies) that cover [cattle/leather] and [wood/clothing fibers]?
  • Has your company begun implementing its policy?

Take care this holiday season, and remember to read the fine print, because not all gifts may be as caring and thoughtful as you might think when their sources are tainted by deforestation and exploitation.

Art of Pilgrimage, The: The Seeker’s Guide to Making Travel Sacred

Art of Pilgrimage, The: The Seeker’s Guide to Making Travel Sacred


For the intrepid traveler, there are more resources than ever before. But what about the traveler who is at a crossroads in life, longing for something else, neither diversion nor distraction, beyond escape and mere entertainment? What about those eager for a journey that is personally meaningful? For millennia this cry has been answered by pilgrimage, the transformative journey to a sacred center. The ancients referred to this path as the Way of the Pilgrim, an acknowledgement of travel for the sake of devotion, commitment, even penance to a holy site, a destination that blazes with meaning – in short, a journey of risk and renewal. The Art of Pilgrimage is a guide for travelers ready to embark on a sacred journey and for armchair travelers curious to know what it means to travel with soulful purpose. Geared toward the modern-day pilgrim looking for inspiration and a few spiritual tools for the road, it combines stories, myths, parables, and quotes from famous travelers of the past with practical suggestions and contemporary accounts from people traveling the sacred way today. Not a guidebook to holy sites, this book is designed to help travelers focus on the purpose and intention at every satge of their journey no matter where they are going. The Art of Pilgrimage includes stories of traditional pilgrimages such as those to Canterbury or Jerusalem, but also ones to Shakespeare’s home, Graceland, or the “Field of Dreams” in Iowa. Phil Cousineau recounts anecdotes from his own travels covering over 50 countries and offers readers the advice he gives when leading tours for the Joseph Campbell Foundation.

The Holiday Party: An Introvert’s Survival Guide

2016-11-21-1479752721-5236844-SpiritHuffPo.jpg

Holiday parties are torture for introverts. Who’s with me?!

All that loud music and making awkward chit-chat whilst standing around in uncomfortable shoes. Rudolf, take the wheel!

I used to dread the holiday season simply because every weekend there was another tinsel-laden-torture-fest to attend. No more! I have crafted a fail-proof holiday party survival plan for introverts.

As a life coach, let me say first and foremost, if you don’t want to go to the party, PLEASE, for the love of all that is gingerbread-scented, DON’T GO! You don’t have to feel obligated. You don’t have to feel badly for not going and you REALLY don’t have to make excuses.

Simply repeat after me:
I’m sorry. I won’t be able to make it, but thanks ever so much for the invitation!” End of story.

HOWEVER, if you choose to go, here’s how to make any party a pleasure instead of a pain:

1. Dress in something that makes you feel amazing.
There is nothing that will make you feel more self-conscious than a dress you have to keep yanking up (or down). Keep it simple. Keep it classy.

2. Don’t overindulge in alcohol.
A little bit of alcohol can be a social lubricant but too much forces you out of your shell. This drains your energy while creating a vulnerability hangover, not to mention the possibility of an actual physical hangover to boot.

3. Take frequent timeouts.
The key to happy holiday party-going for an introvert is energy conservation. Take frequent breaks from the buzzy party atmosphere. Find a quiet spot and spend a few minutes grounding yourself. Step out of your uncomfortable shoes, take a couple of slow breaths, and come back into your body. No need to rush. Once you feel like yourself, you can head back out. Don’t forget your shoes! Repeat as often as necessary.

4. Be yourself.
Oh, that old chestnut. But how?! Be a little vulnerable. Risk starting conversations that are actually meaningful or interesting to you. Introverts have trouble with small talk because we value deeper communication; quality not quantity. Try practicing genuine curiosity about the people you meet. Discover the human behind the ugly sweater.

5. Have an exit strategy; use as needed.
When you start to feel tired, over-stimulated, or just out of sorts, it’s time to say goodbye. I give you permission to leave whenever you want…even if it’s still early. Go on, it’s okay. Find the host/hostess thank them for their hospitality and say goodnight.

Now go put on your sassy pants; it’s time to party!

Ashton Kutcher’s Los Angeles Guide: Airbnb Investor Shares His Favorite Haunts on App

Ashton Kutcher has added another job to his diverse resumé: travel guide.

Well, virtual travel guide, anyway. The 38-year-old actor has shared his favorite Los Angeles gems on Airbnb’s newly launched “Places” section, which allows locals to curate their town’s hot spots for Airbnb visitors. Kutcher, who spoke at this weekend’s Airbnb Open and was interrupted by a protestor, is one of the first celebs to share his must-visit list. Here are his picks for places to eat, play and score free popcorn in the City of Angels.

Comoncy Beverly Hills
“I love this counter-service place for a quick family breakfast. They serve Equator coffee, by far the best cup in town. Get the avocado toast—olive bread with avocado and two poached eggs on top.”

RELATED: Kendall Jenner’s New York City Bucket List: ‘I’ve Always Wanted to Go to the Museum of Sex’

 

Travel Town Museum
“This is a great museum in Griffith Park where you can take the kids to check out old steam trains, go on a train ride, and explore LA’s past. And it’s free—you just pay if you want to ride the train.”

Skirball Center
“Inside this cultural center, there’s a room-sized Noah’s Ark where kids can load handmade wooden animals and climb through rope tunnels. It’s a perfect fun house, with activities, music, and stories.”

WATCH THIS: Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher Enjoy a Date Night Cheering on the Dodgers

 

Santa Monica Pier Aquarium
“This is a little hidden gem. It’s nothing fancy but is a good 30 minutes of entertainment—kids can touch the starfish and sea urchins. And every species is from Santa Monica Bay.”

Los Angeles County Museum of Art
“Activities for kids and amazing art and culture for everyone—they have classes and even a special gallery for children and families. Anyone under 18 can become a member for free.”

 

Lake Hollywood Reservoir
“A super simple hike that’s flat and easy for everyone but still gives you a cool view of the Hollywood sign and Mulholland Dam.”

RELATED: All the Celebs Who Airbnb: See Where Justin, Kim, Gwyneth, Beyoncé and More Have Stayed

Sweet Rose Creamery Brentwood
“They have awesome seasonal flavors that are always changing, and they use quality ingredients. They have a nice contained patio, too.”

 

iPic Theaters Westwood
“Take in a movie and dinner in one fell swoop with kid-friendly food, easy service, and adult beverages. It’s worth it to get the premium plus seats — they’re comfy and you get free popcorn.”

Rocket Fizz Westwood
“Kids love a great candy store, and so do I. Here, you can get your sugar high with all the variety in the world. They have a lot of entertaining gag gifts to keep you busy, too.”

Kutcher, who is an investor in the tech company, also admitted over the weekend that he lived in Airbnbs for a year after his divorce from ex-wife Demi Moore. Although he’s no longer house-hopping, he’s still passionate about expanding the hospitality brand’s growing list of features, including “Places,” “Experiences,” and further down the line, “Services,” and “Flights.”

The Art Of Breaking Free. A Step-by-Step Guide To Forgiveness.

2016-11-14-1479140239-9721899-IMG_3110.jpg

I am furious, disappointed and deeply hurt. “How could she have betrayed me so badly? A ‘friend’ of so many years? Really?!?”

Within the inner chaos caused by this shock, one thing is clear:
“I will never forgive her!” A longstanding friend has just turned into the enemy. It can’t get any worse than that.

And so, the bitter-sweet wheel starts spinning. With each resentful thought, with each vengeful inner dialogue it gains momentum. Yes, this feels like the only thing to do – to just let emotional gravity take its course – and it’s toll…

It’s bitter – the pain is still there and demands to be kept and fed, in memory of this despicable person. The sweetness, however, derives from the vengeful satisfaction I get from finding her reduced to this detrimental betrayal, casting its shadow over previous memories. Nothing left to cherish.

This is not going to end well. We all know that. It’s exhausting, and it turns us into resentful, diminished versions of ourselves.

So, how can we free ourselves from this debilitating dynamic that so easily turns into a lasting obsession?

The unwelcome answer: by doing the very thing we have vowed against doing, by forgiving.

Forgiveness requires a brutally counterintuitive response to the hurtful experience: relaxing clenched fists – and letting go, and feeling the hurt while resisting the pull of armouring up.

That’s a tough package.

How can this be done? What does it take to let go?
This burning question led me to research the facilitating and obstructing factors of forgiveness in depth, retrieving information from counsellors from around the globe, who are in the privileged position of witnessing people’s letting go on a regular basis.

The findings confirmed forgiveness as a universal phenomenon of highest impact on our well-being.There is a wide agreement that forgiveness is a process that starts with the conscious choice of the wounded. This decision of letting go must mature genuinely and cannot be pushed without compromising its progression.

Forgiveness unfolds in stages similar to those of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. It leaves us changed, as we need to rearrange our inner realities in order to accommodate an experience that we initially could only reject.

More often than not forgiveness feels like an overwhelming task. Contemplating its impressive benefits, however, has proven to be a helpful first step out of the bitter pit. Forgiveness heals our wounded self-image, rebuilds our self-worth, restores inner peace, it makes us stronger and wiser, increases our capacity to love, and leads to a new personal freedom.

A common roadblock on our path of letting go is overcoming our pride. The wounded Ego will resist forgiveness with all its power. The bigger the Ego, the harder it gets. That’s why narcissists have no problem with forgiveness: they don’t even go there. It’s precisely our empathic capacity that will poke and push us when we are stuck in non-forgiveness. Deep down we can’t deny our shared humanness with the one who has hurt us; it doesn’t take much for us to turn from victim into offender. Aren’t we all a “House of many Rooms“? As offensive as this idea may feel at first, it is a most powerful fuel on the way to letting go.

Distorted, even false ideas about forgiveness are another obstacle preventing people from finding their way into new freedom.

Some people think that forgiveness equals reconciliation. That’s not true.
We can find a way to make peace with the past, while deciding not to get back in touch with the person who wronged us.

Some people think that withholding forgiveness is the perfect way to get even. Careful!
We can never be sure the offender even cares whether or not we forgive; we can only be sure of one thing: we will suffer! Non-forgiveness is a major source for psychosomatic problems and unhappiness. Each unresolved issue constitutes a substantial energy-leakage, making us cringe at the mere thought of it.

“Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies.” Nelson Mandela

Some people think that forgiveness is for others. Well, yes, it probably is. But –
First and foremost forgiveness is for our own selves, to get rid of the negativity around a painful experience. If we don’t find a way to let go, we will remain bound to the perpetrator in a most expensive way: through a bridge of hatred. The more intense the emotions – the stronger the connection. Forgiveness is the only way to free ourselves and move on.

Some believe that forgiveness is for the weak, the coward, and the needy. Not so.
As my research has shown, forgiveness requires the full extent of pain, bitterness and inner devastation to emerge before we can choose to make peace with this reality – an act of incredible courage.

“Forgiveness is only properly in place where initially resentment is properly in place.” J.G. Murphy (1982)

One of the main concerns among mental health experts is that of premature or fake forgiveness.
We forgive prematurely when we can’t face the reality of what happened, so we don’t go through the process of forgiveness. We close our eyes and want to get it over with. “It’s OK, honey, I forgive you.” A classic ‘fake-forgiveness’ statement that will perpetuate an unhealthy situation. No asking for details, no hard feelings, yet…

The harmful effects of fake-forgiveness will show over time. Suppressed anger will poison the relational space, showing up at any opportunity in sarcastic comments. The hurt person’s self-esteem will continue to go down in suffocating silence. Trust is broken; an increasing sense of danger replaces the feeling of cozy familiarity. Fake-forgiveness not only turns us into unhappy people, like non-forgiveness, but it also disempowers us due to the denial involved. No wonder premature-forgiveness has been pointed out as a serious mental health threat!

So, if we are tired of being mad, what can we do to move towards freedom?
Here is a 2-phase path towards freedom: 3 steps of mental preparation, 8 steps of emotional work.

First, let’s get into the right mind-set:
1. Recount the abundant benefits of forgiveness, remember the costs of non-forgiveness. This will strengthen you to move on.

2. Be aware of fake-forgiveness. Accept that it can take some time before we are ready to let go.

3. Remember that pain is part of life. The closer we are, the more painful the wounds we are inflicting on each other, simply because love doesn’t allow for our usual protective layers; we are bound to hurt and be hurt – a reality we cannot change.

Now we are ready to start the emotional work.

1. Be safe: The first thing we should aim at is getting ourselves out of the danger zone and making sure the hurt is part of the past; we can’t really forgive something that we are expecting to keep happening!

2. Dive in: Allow yourself to remember, feel and understand what has happened to you. Let it all emerge. No holding back. Get all the support you can during this stage – a trusted friend, a therapist, a coach. It’s the most painful stage in this process, where we easily divert into fake-forgiveness. Be gentle, don’t push yourself. This needs time, depending on the severity of the offence. But remember: it’s just a transitory stage; we move towards freedom.

3. Expand: Once nothing new comes up, all has been said, cried over, shouted about, then we can start moving forward – start imagining the offender’s situation. What may have led him/her to do this? What would cause a person to act like this? We are all “Houses of many rooms” – and potential offenders as well as victims. This is important to acknowledge here, as hard as it may seem.

4. Reach out? Do you feel the need of reaching out and confront the perpetrator with the injustice and the pain he/she has caused? This can be a powerfully strengthening experience. However, this could also backfire if the wounded doesn’t feel strong enough to handle a possibly hurtful response. Discuss this with a trusted person.

5. Empower: Ask yourself the most outrageous of questions: could I have had a part in this offence? As innocent as we may be, often (not always) we can see in retrospect that we unknowingly did something that triggered the hurtful action. Understanding the dynamics of what happened will help us to regain a sense of control and power.

6. Relinquish: If you believe in God or in a higher power, you may be able to trust that eventually justice will be done – no matter how humanly impossible this may seem at the moment. This trust has shown to help victims in the process of letting go.

7. Persevere: Be patient and hold on to your decision to let go. Time is an important factor here. This process will move you through ups and downs, and sometimes you may even wonder if you are moving at all.

8. Celebrate: over time the intensity of emotions will subside until you realise it’s gone, and not only that: by overcoming it, the initially negative experience will have turned into a source of wisdom and strength.

“The experience of violation and its impact on the forgiving person’s life is different at the end of the process than it was at the beginning”. Malcolm & Greenberg (2000)

Looking back now at the wounding incident with my friend, I still feel the loss of somebody I once deeply trusted. I have accepted that she is not the “pure” person I thought she was, and that her actions had little to do with me, but a lot with her own unhappy life situation. I have come to understand that at this point in time it is better for me to distance and protect myself, and I have arrived at a place where I genuinely can wish her well and release her.
No more triggers that push me into angry inner dialogues, no more negative thoughts going her way.

I have grown,
and I am free.

Classic Guide to Golf

Classic Guide to Golf


At 10.15 a.m. on Saturday 3 June 1944, a shaft of sunlight fell across my board, sending a brilliant white reflection into my eyes. Bother, I thought, now the ink will dry too quickly. Moving so that the shadow of my head covered my work I became aware that Joe Smith and a military officer had entered the hangar and were approaching the Chief Draughtsman s office. Stella Rutter, the first woman employed in the Drawing Office of Supermarine, would that evening play the role of hostess at the farewell party that generals Eisenhower and Montgomery held on the eve of D-Day for the most senior commanding officers British, American and Canadian involved in the landings. Her strict Edwardian upbringing had taught Stella to mix with older people and keep quiet about anything she overheard. It was this naturally security-conscious attitude that led to her remarkable involvement in the Second World War. In these pages, Stella recounts her war story. After leaving art college, she obtained a post in the Drawing Office of HMS Excellent, Portsmouth. A year later she was commandeered to work for the Technical Publications section of Supermarine, the designers of the Spitfire. Then in June 1944 she was recommended as the right person to create an atmosphere of normality to relax the assembled officers at a gathering in a Nissen hut in the forest of Hursley Park on the eve of the invasion of Normandy. Seventy years on she is now at liberty to share her experiences.
