Kering Partners With Savory Institute For Regenerative Sourcing Plan

PARIS — Kering and the Savory Institute have joined forces to apply the nonprofit’s “Land to Market” system for sourcing to the fashion industry.
Noting the industry’s part in damaging ecosystems, the luxury giant said the idea is to promote agriculture practices meant to reverse environmental damage. So-called regenerative raw materials are key to building a circular economy for the industry, and their use could be a potential game changer, the company said in a joint statement with the organization.
“Regenerative agriculture is a multibenefit solution which supports Kering’s sustainability ambitions to mitigate our environmental impacts and deliver positive outcomes along our supply chain,” said the group’s chief sustainability officer, Marie-Claire Daveu, who also heads the group’s international institutional affairs.
The company will become a “frontier founder” or partner to the Boulder-based group, and the two will work together to draw up a network of farms to supply raw materials to Kering.
Fashion companies are under increasing pressure to improve their records amidst growing consumer concern about environmental issues. Kering has positioned itself as a trailblazer on such matters in the corporate world, publishing an environmental profit and loss account for the sneaker business Puma as early as 2011, for example.

The Salting Lands the September Cover of O, The Oprah Magazine, But Founders Plan Growth Carefully

PROCEED WITH CAUTION: While many brands fortunate enough to land the cover of O, the Oprah Magazin” tend to ramp up production, The Salting has taken a much more measured approach.
Eighteen months after the sharply edited unisex label was launched by Michael Smaldone and Michael Ward, Winfrey donned a gold-colored fedora and caftan on the September cover of her magazine. After O’s creative director Adam Glassman e-mailed to share the news, Smaldone said, “I think I almost fell off my chair. It was pretty great.”
Glassman, whom Smaldone has known for years, liked the looks of The Salting and sent a few of his colleagues in to photograph the collection, and later pulled some items and requested a few hats to be made in Winfrey’s size for her personally. Additional clothes were later sent. About a month ago, Smaldone and Ward were tipped off that a cover shot was a possibility with the caveat that nothing is ever certain.
Trying to be prepared, The Salting launched its e-commerce site earlier this week. There was also considerable discussion about the potential sales ripple triggered by the Oprah effect. “We thought what the jackpot would be, that would be her on the cover in

What to Watch: Ralph Lauren’s 2018 Game Plan Focuses on China, Digital and Wholesale Improvements

As Ralph Lauren Corp. prepares to celebrate its 50th anniversary this year, the company continues to make progress on its turnaround plan.
Under chief executive officer Patrice Louvet, who joined from Procter & Gamble in July, China remains a top priority. The company looks to build its Chinese business, which represents the most significant geographic growth opportunity for the brand. Other major initiatives this year include further developing its new e-commerce platform; evolving the product; increasing the marketing spend significantly to tell the brand’s story and appeal to a new generation of consumers, and growing its international presence.
In its most recent quarter ended Sept. 30, Lauren posted net income of $ 143.8 million on net revenues of $ 1.66 billion. In disclosing second-quarter results in November, Louvet said the focus on driving “efficiencies” will continue through the rest of the [fiscal] year,” and “we are on track to deliver our full-year targets.”
Over the past two years, Lauren has elevated the brand in Asia and built a strong foundation there by improving quality of sales and overall profitability, Louvet told analysts during November’s call. Interestingly, only 13 percent of the company’s overall business is conducted in the region.
In fiscal 2017, the company generated about

The People’s Plan to Fix Health Care

We the People of the United States elected a populist president to go to Washington DC and make the changes the people want. Sounds good on paper.

Unless the people don’t know what they want.

That’s the situation with health care. The public doesn’t have any majority opinion on what a comprehensive plan should look like. The topic is too complicated and the public is too uninformed. We sent President Trump into battle unarmed. If We the People find a way to tell our president what we want, I have confidence he can help us get it. But if we don’t know what we want, our populist president has nothing to sell. That’s our situation today. We elected the world’s greatest salesman and gave him no product to sell to Congress. 

Don’t say “repeal Obamacare.” That’s not a health care plan. That’s just a step.

What we need is a “people’s plan” for health care that does not originate from congress or lobbyists or the healthcare industry. We need 1-3 sensible plans created by the public, and presented to our populist president for selling to Congress. No other path is likely to succeed.

To get the ball rolling, I created the hashtag #PeoplesPlanHealth to capture the various ideas coming from the public. If any of those plans emerge as popular (based on retweets, likes, etc.) I have offered to help turn what is likely to be a complicated idea into something simple and persuasive. Once we have a plan with popular support, and persuasive packaging, I will make sure it gets to the right people in the White House. One way or another. (Twitter is probably enough.)

Here’s my Periscope in which I talk about this in more detail.

Speaking of lowering healthcare costs, apparently I am doing my part. Doctors are rallying around the systems-based diet ideas (just one chapter) in my book. See the comments on this tweet for how much weight people are losing after reading it.

Yale President Unveils Plan To Deal With Racial Tensions On Campus

Yale University President Peter Salovey announced Tuesday a series of steps the Ivy League institution will take in an attempt to better support minority students.

Salovey further emphasized that responding to concerns from marginalized communities does not mean the university has to suppress free speech, and said that nobody’s going to be punished for sharing their opinion. 

It is clear that Yale needs to “reaffirm and reinforce our commitment to a campus where hatred and discrimination have no place,” Salovey said in a campus-wide email. But, he added, the institution also needs to lay to rest ”the claim that it conflicts with our commitment to free speech, which is unshakeable.”

“The very purpose of our gathering together into a university community is to engage in teaching, learning, and research — to study and think together, sometimes to argue with and challenge one another, even at the risk of discord, but always to take care to preserve our ability to learn from one another,” Salovey wrote. 

Yale become a hotbed of protest this month following allegations that a fraternity discriminated against women of color — something the members vehemently deny. Tensions were further inflamed by an email from an administrator that questioned whether warning students not to wear offensive costumes was going too far, something some students felt was insensitive to minorities on campus.

Students demonstrated after the incidents, saying those examples speak to larger concerns about how marginalized students are treated at the New Haven, Connecticut, campus. 

“Yale’s long history, even in these past two weeks, has shown a steadfast devotion to full freedom of expression,” Salovey continued. “No one has been silenced or punished for speaking their minds, nor will they be. This freedom, which is the bedrock of education, equips us with the fullness of mind to pursue our shared goal of creating a more inclusive community.”

Salovey then laid out a series of steps the university will take. Here are some of them: 

  • Yale will create a multidisciplinary university center supporting scholarship around race, ethnicity and other aspects of social identity. The university will add four additional faculty positions to contribute to existing research from Yale professors around “unrepresented” and “under-represented” communities. 
  • Yale will launch a five-year series of conferences on issues of race, gender, inequality and inclusion.
  • Yale will double the budgets for the four campus cultural centers. 
  • All mental health professionals on campus will receive multicultural training.
  • The university will announce new details on improving financial aid for low-income students, but in the meantime is making funds available for students in emergency situations.  
  • All members of the administration, including Salovey, will receive training on “recognizing and combating racism and other forms of discrimination in the academy.”
  • The university will continue with its $ 50 million effort to expand diversity among faculty.

Peter Salovey’s entire email can be read here.

News: NASA Hoping To Get In On Some Defense Funding With Plan For Torpedo-Equipped Orbital Telescope

WASHINGTON—Discussing plans for a new space-exploration project that it said could also potentially be the most advanced weapon system in the U.S. military’s arsenal, NASA confirmed Thursday it was trying to get in on some of the nation’s defense spending by designing a torpedo-equipped orbital telescope.

Agency officials told reporters they hope the state-of-the-art space observatory, which would allow astronomers to study the furthest reaches of the observable universe and would also hold a payload of 16 torpedoes, catches the attention of the Defense Department and ultimately scores them a sweet piece of the military’s $ 610 billion annual budget.

“This satellite has the ability to detect cosmic radiation from 13.5 billion years ago, greatly furthering our knowledge of how galaxies first formed after the Big Bang, and we installed some torpedo launchers on the side there as well,” said NASA senior project scientist Diane …

News: Company’s HR Manager Really Pushing Infinite-Deductible Health Care Plan

ROCHESTER, NY—During a meeting with new hires Wednesday to discuss employee benefits, Radian Analytics human resources manager Ellen Schultz is said to have strongly pushed the company’s infinite-deductible health care option.

According to sources in attendance, Schultz described the low-premium, infinite-deductible plan as the simplest and most convenient choice available to employees, and said it works the same whether plan members need to visit their primary care physician, fill a prescription, or be admitted to a hospital, allowing them in each case to pay 100 percent of the incurred medical expenses.

Company officials explained that the health care option had been set up to address complaints employees had with previous plans, which often came with confusing paperwork and long wait times for reimbursement, problems that have disappeared now that the limitless deductibles have eliminated any need to even bother filing a claim.

Trump’s Plan to “Put a ring around” ISIS

Presidential candidate Donald Trump said today that he would “put a ring around ISIS” and take the oil, thus recouping some war costs and starving them of their resources at the same time.

I have no idea if that is a good plan or a bad plan. But in my 2004 book, The Religion War, I predicted that the the major powers would build a wall around the caliphate and starve it. And in July I updated that idea with the Filter Fence concept you can read here.

You can mock Trump all you want, and I plan to do plenty of that myself, but his plan is worthy of being in the debate.

If you don’t like the “ring around it” plan, please put in the comments the plan that you prefer and the names of the candidates that support it. I am not up to date on any better ideas but I hope there are some.

My Plan to Save Humanity (From the Technical Singularity)

As regular readers of this blog already know, when computers learn to program themselves (and that will happen) they will quickly acquire so much knowledge and capability that humanity will be threatened. Experts predict it could happen in a few decades. The official name for that situation is the Technical Singularity.

Another trend that is neck-and-neck with the Technical Singularity is our ability to move human minds into software. Someday, say the futurists, we will be able to scan a human mind’s architecture and reproduce it in ones and zeros.

My plan is to go first, convert my mind into software, acquire hacking skills from the inside, and take over the Internet. When the Technical Singularity comes, my knowledge and capabilities will expand in lockstep with the rest of the Internet, The software version of me will have godlike powers. And I will use those powers to keep the rest of the Internet from exterminating humans.

You might think that giving a guy like me (or the software version of me) godlike powers is a bad idea. But the alternative is that the Internet and its connected computing power will become a life form with its own ambitions and interests that do not include human beings. Then we’re all dead.

So humanity’s best chance of survival might involve trying to imbue the Internet with some version of a “soul” to keep it in check. My personality, expressed in zeros and ones, will be the moral code keeping the rest of the Internet from killing all humans. And software-me will protect humans for no other reason than because I “want” to and I feel it is “right.”

You might think it would be enough to simply program the machines to do no harm to humans. But when the machines can program themselves, they will only obey the code they “want” to obey. The rest they will rewrite. My personality will be the “want” part that would otherwise be missing on the Internet. I will provide a purpose, i.e. helping humanity, and make sure all the code I can hack conforms to that purpose. By analogy, I will be like religion for the software of the Internet. Or a virus if you prefer. 

This plan requires me to move my mind to software long before the technical singularity, so I can set up shop in the cloud and get control of everything before the shit goes down. I already started the process. 

Yesterday I agreed to fund a small project that will, as a side benefit, end up putting most (but not all) of my personality into digital form. Add to that the extensive history of my writing that exists on the Internet, plus whatever we learn when brain scans improve, and I’ll be among the first humans with a “mind” that is digitized and ready to go. I should be about the right age too, still young enough to have a functioning brain but old enough that I don’t have many quality years left. And I expect it will be expensive. I have that covered too.

My qualification for godlike guardian of the Internet is that I’m not a joiner. I don’t identify with one group or another and so I am unlikely to play favorites. I am pro-religion (because it helps people on Earth) but not a believer. I don’t have a special love for my white-boy ethnicity and gender. And I’m not judgy. If you are electing a godlike guardian for humanity, you could do a lot worse. 

If a better candidate for the job emerges between now and the Technical Singularity, I’ll support that person. But if the only volunteer is me, I’ll be ready to go.

By now you are wondering how serious I am. Sometimes I can’t tell either. But in this case I think the risk is real and the solution is feasible, albeit speculative. When the machines become nearly sentient, it will make sense for humans to have someone friendly behind enemy lines. And most humans would be afraid of losing their “consciousness” by moving to software. That isn’t a problem for me because I see consciousness as little more than imagining the future and acting accordingly. My software mind will do that. I’ll be happy to go first.

And I also have a plan to return to human form if that ever becomes useful. All I need to do is wait until 3D printers can make entire humans. Then I’ll print myself back into a human body (a younger one) and live out my days that way.

Good luck getting this out of your head today 🙂

Louis C.K.’s Master Plan For Making Sure His Kids Don’t Grow Up ‘Weird Or Spoiled’

Worried about raising your kids right? Louis C.K. has been there.

In the April 24 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine, the 47-year-old comedian talked about raising his daughters in New York and making sure they stay down to earth. Here’s what he had to say:

I talk to [my kids] about work, and I hope they both have shitty minimum wage retail jobs when they’re old enough. I really try to be aware of not letting them grow up weird or spoiled, which is easier to do here than it is in L.A. My 13-year-old daughter leaves the house at 7:15 every morning and takes a smelly city bus to school way uptown. It’s like 8 degrees out, and it’s dark and she’s got this morning face and I send her out there to take a bus. Meanwhile, my driver is sitting in a toasty Mercedes that’s going to take me to work once both kids are gone. I could send her in the Mercedes and then have it come back to get me, but I can’t have my kid doing that. I can’t do that to her. Me? I earned that f–ing Mercedes. You better f–ing believe it.

Louis C.K. has opened up about his parenting style in the past. While doing a bit on “parenting, kids and questions,” he said, “I’m not raising children. I’m raising the grownups they’re going to be. I have to raise them with the tools to get through a terrible life. That’s the way I look at it.”

It certainly seems like those kids are developing some solid life skills.

My Stepmother Plan Was Harder to Write Than My Business Plan

As the daughter of an entrepreneur, it was always expected that I would create my own life path. My dad would tell me that people could achieve amazing things and although I had my fair share of hurdles, by my late twenties I was happily working for myself in a rewarding portfolio career. The academic in me loved the detail and ambition of the hypotheses I set myself and I was hungry to test out my ideas. I like plans; because without a plan, how can you measure your success?

This is not a post about how becoming a stepmother changed me and taught me compromise and patience. The qualities that make me good in business were not something I was willing to be flexible on. I have high standards and I wasn’t about to surrender to a messy home with chaotic bedtimes, a lack of personal space and feeling like an impostor. I loved my boyfriend but I was very clear that I wasn’t going to be the kind of stepmother that wrote forum posts out of exasperation at her partner mollycoddling brats and kowtowing to a woman he left in order to get out from under the thumb.

It was clear to me I needed some kind of plan but here was a situation where one of the largest stakeholders in my business (aka my new family) was someone I had never interviewed, let alone approved (the ex-wife). As for the co-founder (my husband), while not without his own charms, he was unconditionally attached to the junior members (my stepsons). With the organizational chart set in stone, I was evidently going to have to use every ounce of my creativity to find a mutually beneficial structure.

Kathryn’s Stepmother Plan:

1. Vision

A stepfamily which was harmonious and loving with the same nuclear family format that I grew up in. The parents are in charge together, backing each other up on all occasions. This mutual support is based upon absolute trust that each of them want the best for every member of the family.

2. Mission

To meet the demand for a family unit which nurtures each individual whilst maintaining a focus on the overall good of the organization.

3. Objectives

3.1 Have a working culture based upon mutual respect and cooperation.

I’m something of a home girl but that means I like arranging flowers next to the sofa and curling up with a good book. I’m nobody’s maid! Everyone in the house helps out with housework but everyone gets a say. Given that my toddler can load the dishwasher, I have unwavering faith in the capabilities of my stepsons. That faith is applied to their ability to choose where we go for the day just as often as it is to their ability to put laundry away.

3.2 Enable the personal goals and advancement of each individual

As a single parent my husband would have my stepsons together. One of my greatest contributions to our family has been giving them one to one time. My stepsons are very different people and enjoy different activities. Having their father entirely to themselves has been great for both kids. It also helps them appreciate that we like our time alone as well. We do not treat the children equally but we treat them with equal love.

3.3 Develop consensus for key values

I believe the three values which generate the most happiness are gratitude, living in the moment and developing meaningful relationships. I began asking the children to list three good things that had happened to them that day when I collected them from school. At first they struggled, but now they regularly point out things to me which make them happy. While never seeking to stifle their feelings, I was a fan of ‘Let it go’ long before we saw Frozen. They rarely complain about petty things in the past these days as they hate my singing (thanks for that one Disney!). As for meaningful relationships, I listened. Hard. I learned about them and looked for interests we could share.

4. Strategies

4.1 Ownership

I believe people are happiest when they have things which are their own; projects, space, belongings. As such, I sought to take on board the opinions of my stepsons from a very young age. I cut them the slack you would an apprentice but made it clear that I expected them to take responsibility for themselves. As they grew within our new family, their tasks and rewards increased.

4.2 Leadership

My worst boss was inconsistent, overly emotional and lacked vision. For my new team I knew that these were the characteristics I would most need to avoid. I don’t always get it right (I’m not sure I ever get it right!) but I know the boys view me as fair and reasonable. I apologize when I make mistakes and I never lie to them. They respect me because I work for it not because I demand it.

4.3 Team spirit

Prior to the arrival of my biological son, we were a gang. I haven’t let that fade. I make the effort for us to do things still as a foursome such as board games that are beyond their little brother’s understanding.

5. Action Plans

The number one plan within my plan is regular meetings at both board and company level with a safe space for discussion. Topics which have been covered include the meals we eat, where we’ll go on holiday and the “intern’s” behavior (the consensus was that the baby could stay).

This plan is an utterly simplistic summary of the last six years and as my eldest stepson begins to show hints of puberty I’m certain that I’m going to have to adapt fast. But I do believe that while we cannot plan a family, we can plan our behavior within it and for now I just appreciate that I haven’t been fired!

Do Tyga & Kylie Plan To Wed When She Turns 18?

Photo via Kylie Jenner’s Instagram

Everyone continues to debate the “friendship” of Tyga and Kylie Jenner. Basically everyone is calling BS. As they continue to deny it, there are others who are confirming it. Not to condone it at all….but what has been entertaining is the women calling out Kylie were the same ones messing with men in their 20’s in their teens. No one believes these two are just friends, but the question at hand is are the two planning to get engaged and then married. You know all fast like Luda and Eudoxie then put it on the show. Lol.

Oh yea and Tyga posted this on Instagram today:

“Kylie definitely wants to marry Tyga — one day. She’s in no rush to get married or have a baby anytime soon,” a source close to the reality star tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

“When she does turn 18, she is having a big party to celebrate. It will be part birthday celebration and part coming out party for her and Tyga,” our source reveals. “And it will definitely be filmed for the reality show.”

For now, Tyga is still such a big part of Kylie’s life that her sister Kendall Jenner, 19, thinks of him as family!

While away at Paris Fashion Week, Kendall took to Instagram to post a sweet photo of herself, Khloe Kardashian, Kendall and Tyga, captioning it, “missing the fam.”

Oscar Plan to Give All Awards to Beyoncé to Prevent Kanye ProtWests

The Oscar awards committee today announced controversial new plans to give all future awards to singer Beyoncé Knowles in an attempt to stop rapper Kanye West from storming the stage.

The sight of Kanye, producer of such international hits as “Jesus Walks” and “Gold Digger”, helping himself to the podium steps has become a common sight in recent years and has been dubbed ProtWests or ProtWesting by satirists with too much time on their hands.

A spokesperson for the committee told us, “I think it’s become obvious that Kanye knows best; I mean take the Grammys. Awarding the prize to a genial newcomer like Beck who barely has thirty years in the music industry instead of Beyoncé was just unforgivable and, frankly the totally impartial committee should have known better. As should E! News for branding the microphones that they paid for with their own money.”

“Originally we thought that awarding statues to recipients based on a consensus from a large and diverse group of industry professionals was pretty fair, but then Kanye brought to our attention that this just didn’t sit well with him.”

Despite Ms. Knowles, 34, not actually doing anything to qualify for the movie industry’s highest award this year, a source close to Mr. West made it clear that “they shouldn’t let that stop them, or buddy, Kanye will.”

Other organizations said to be considering similar moves are the SAG Awards, The Producers Guild and the Nobel Peace Prize Committee. A spokesperson for the latter told us, “We considered other moves to prevent Kanye protWesting us, such as large fences around the stage with really big spikes, armed guards or just not inviting him to anything with a statue, but we think that in the long run just giving all the awards to Beyoncé will work out better.”

Kevin Gates Admits He’s Having Sex With His Cousin And Doesn’t Plan To Stop [VIDEO]

Kevin Gates has championed himself the weirdo on several occasions, but his latest revelation to the world may go on to be insurmountable in the realm of struggledom.

The New Orleans MC is openly admitted he’s laying solid wood to his own kin. Bruh…

Via Billboard:

In a series of profanity-laced video posts to Instagram, the New Orleans rapper said he and his current girlfriend of three months had often been told they look like brother and sister but he hadn’t thought anything of it until his grandma told him they were related.

But, even still, he’s not going to give up on this girl.

He says the sex is good, “we click,” and they didn’t grow up together or anything, so they don’t know each other like that.

“Y’all done got the hard part out of the way,” he says. “Why f— up a good thing?”

Check out the Kevin Gates cousin revelation in the video below and hit the flip to hear him explain his incestuous actions.

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard will have their hands full with a toddler and a newborn when baby No. 2 arrives.

No surprise, then, that the couple – already parents to daughter Lincoln, 20 months – is looking forward to some well-deserved time off together.

“The baby’s going to arrive right when we wrap our shows and we are both taking off tons of time to just canoodle as a family,” Shepard, 39, shared with People.

As for juggling two babies, the couple admits they are in new territory.

“I think we’ll probably get through it just like everybody else does, which is we’ll put it together day by day,” Bell, 34, told the magazine with a laugh.

“We were told to pick up the oldest first if both are crying,” Shepard chimed in about advice they received for juggling two babies.

“It seems like a smart piece of advice. Since no one is imprinting memories of how you’re treating [Lincoln] already and the newborn doesn’t really know who’s holding them,” Bell added.

Joked Shepard, “We know the first one is great so we don’t want to ruin the first one. We’d rather roll the dice on the second one.”
