Agency Linden Staub Aims to Rewrite the Rules of Model Management

LONDON — The modeling industry has been under the microscope more than ever this past year as a result of the rise of the #MeToo movement, allegations against leading photographers about sexual harassment and this week’s Talent Protections Act being signed into law in California — according to which, talent agencies need to provide educational materials on sexual harassment prevention, retaliation, and reporting resources to their clients.
Aware of the pressing need for change in the industry, Tala Davies and Esther Kinnear-Derungs founded agency Linden Staub. They’ve been attempting to rewrite the rules of model management for three years, even before the #MeToo movement took hold.
They only represent models as the “mother agency,” which means they retain control over the strategy and big decisions around the models’ career trajectories. They have also implemented a next-day payment policy for the talent on their books, and attempt to educate them about the industry.
They’ve already helped create breakthrough personalities, including Maxim Magnus, the transgender model who has been a champion for LGBTQ rights and has been featured in an array of high-profile campaigns from Gucci to Stella McCartney and Tom Ford.

Grooming rules for younger skin

Treat your skincare regimen like you treat a fitness routine, gentlemen: Your skin needs time and attention to look its healthiest—in this case, for a clear, youthful complexion.

If you want to reverse some signs of aging, or prevent them in the first place, then consider these nine men’s grooming and skincare tips to look your best (and youngest!).

1. Cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize

The most essential skincare regimen includes three things: cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing. You need to cleanse in the morning when you wake up, and again before bed. This will clear the pores of any buildup from your pillow and from the oils and sweat you produce, as well as environmental toxins and grime. Plus, you need to “cleanse” the canvas to which you will apply other products for them to be effective.

After washing, you should exfoliate the skin—but only twice a week. This gentle abrasive cream will remove dead skin cells and keep them from clogging the pores, while promoting your healthiest, most youthful cells to the surface of the skin.

Afterwards—morning and night—always rehydrate with a moisturizer, to nourish the cells, restore moisture (it’s all in the name), and create a protective layer atop the skin that prevents toxins from entering the pores.

2. At night, wear a denser cream

You can substitute your evening moisturizer application with a night cream, which is packed with extra nutrients that your cells can absorb while you sleep. It’s important to have a bedtime skincare strategy, too, because your cellular regeneration happens much more rapidly while you sleep. This is why you often wake up to find that a skin abrasion has healed while you slept, as opposed to persisting all day long with little improvement.

Grab a night cream that focuses on repair and anti-aging (like Lab Series’ Night Recovery Lotion) to ensure that you wake up with the freshest face possible.

3. Try a retinol

Talk to your dermatologist to see if you should start a nightly retinol regimen. Retinol is a vitamin A derivative that nearly all dermatologists deem “the miracle anti-aging product”. Extended retinol use has actually reversed fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and acne. But there are many precautions you need to take with retinol: avoid sunlight without sunscreen, only wear it at bedtime, and, if you have light skin, prepare for a little skin peeling while you adjust to it. That’s why it’s important to talk to your doctor, and have him or her prescribe the cream s/he thinks is best.

4. Get lots of sleep

On the topic of bedtime: It’s important to get lots of sleep if you want youthful-looking skin. Seven or eight hours are essential, every night. Your body—every function, not just skin cell regeneration—needs this time to recharge, and if you routinely miss out on a full night’s rest, you’ll start adding years to your face, since you’re robbing your skin of all the precious time to help itself. You can’t “earn back” lost sleep, either: You need to be in the habit of consistent, full night’s sleep.

5. Always wear SPF

UV rays are one of the biggest offenders to your skin. With every tan or burn, you’re mutating the cells, aging them faster and faster. Block these damaging rays with an SPF-packed moisturizer, to minimize the onset of wrinkles, dark spots, and rough skin. It’s your single best defense, and will have you looking 10 or 15 years younger than your peers when you’re 50 or 60. (But only if you start when you’re young).

6. Level up with serum or a mask

If you want to take your regimen beyond the traditional three steps, consider buying a serum or mask. A serum is a lightweight, nutrient-dense liquid that penetrates all three layers of the skin (unlike moisturizer, which sits atop the outermost layer) and boosts collagen production to help keep skin firm and youthful. Apply serum after cleansing, but before moisturizing. (We like Dermalogica’s Multivitamin Power Serum.)

Whereas serum is like a super-moisturizer, a mask is like a super-cleanser. Funnily enough, you need to cleanse the skin before applying a mask, but then the mask does some vacuum-like deep cleaning and drying out of the pores that no routine cleansing can accomplish. Leave a mask on for 10-15 minutes as it tightens, then wash it away and hydrate the skin immediately after. This once-weekly regimen will keep pores clear and will prevent blemishes that wear out and age the skin. (Try Brickell’s Purifying Charcoal Face Mask.)

8. Drink lots of water

Just as you need ample sleep to keep your skin looking youthful, you need to stay ultra-hydrated to keep your body functions fully nourished. Dehydration leads to dry and brittle skin, acne, slowed repair, and more. There’s a reason so many models have gone on record saying that their “secret” is drinking lots of water. It flushes toxins from the body, delivers nutrients, and keeps you looking youthful on a daily basis—and longterm.

9. Cut back on caffeine, added sugars, and alcohol

The antagonist in your quest for youthfulness has three faces: caffeine, sugar, and alcohol. These vices dry out the skin, clog the pores, and compromise sleep (which, as you know, is a detriment to your youthful appearance). Natural sugars found in foods like fruits are OK, but it’s the processed foods and added sugar you need to watch out for. So, since you’re presumably well-rested already, limit yourself to one morning coffee. Then, since you’re so responsible, try sticking to just one glass of wine with dinner, and skip dessert.

10 basic fashion rules

As every man knows, looking effortlessly fashionable often requires, ironically, a whole lot of effort. You might not know the first thing about buying a suit and tie, but fret not—we’ll tell you what you need to know.

1. How to tie the perfect tie

Why?
A lot of guys don’t have to wear a tie every day, but it is a basic staple in the modern man’s wardrobe arsenal. It’s like tying a shoe—once you know, you know. It just takes a little repetition and practice. But once you get it down, you’re ready for that interview, wedding, funeral, or any other event that guys who refuse to wear suits end up wearing a suit to.

How:
You can find a description on the thetiebar.com.


2. How your shirt should fit

Why?
There are really only two measurements you need to know when picking out your shirt: your neck size and your sleeve length. Easy, right? Knowing the proper size of your neck and sleeves will ensure a better fit, and will minimize any tailoring you may want to do to the body of the shirt.

How:
For your neck: Measure around your neck so that you graze your Adam’s apple. You should be able to comfortably fit two fingers under the measuring tape and your neck (both fingers pressing against your neck, not one beside the other adding more space outward). This gives you the room to breathe, while not being loose.

For your sleeve: Place your hand on your hip, with your arm bent at 90° (very important.) Have someone (preferably a professional, but a significant other should do, assuming they like you to look good) measure the distance from the center back of your neck (you can feel that bump from your spine about where your neck meets your torso) and go along the outer part of the arm, over the shoulder and elbow all the way to your wrist where your sleeve will end.

For your body: Dress shirts come in a variety of vague sizes. What the hell do they all mean? Here is what you really need to know. You take that same trusty measuring tape used to make that neck fit and that sleeve length right, and you take two quick measurements. First, around the widest part of your chest. It probably lands somewhere around the nipple. Don’t make it too tight. For the second, measure around the widest part of the belly (so about your belly button.) This should be a comparable measurement to your chest, and now you know your torso measurements. You can bring them up when shirt shopping, or reference the size guide when looking online. It will help determine if you need a “Slim” “Regular” or “Classic” fit, or whatever the store’s variation may be. The key in this is being open to tailoring. Off the rack, by definition, means it was not made for your body alone. Yes, you can find some great fitting options, but if you can’t find the one that is right in the neck, sleeves, and body, take it to a tailor.


3. How your suit jacket should fit

Why?
Few things look sloppier or less professional than a man in an ill-fitting suit. That’s why you never see James Bond, Ryan Gosling, or the president in a sloppy suit. These men expect to be taken seriously, dammit. So an easy way to command attention and respect is to get a suit that fits. Let’s start with the jacket.

How:
The shoulder of the jacket should hit the broadest part of your shoulders and lightly graze the arm as it falls. Your movement should be slightly restricted. It’s a nice suit, not fitness gear. The lapel should not bow up across your pecs. (But if you’re constantly bench-pressing, this might happen, but your super-strong chest will make up for the less-ideal fit.) The TOP button of a two-button jacket, or the MIDDLE button of a three-button jacket should fit snug, but not pull. The bottom button always remains open. Having a button closed when standing without pulling is just about perfect. Your sleeve length, conservatively, should hit at the point where your wrist meets your hand, with your shirt cuff falling between 1/4″ and 3/4″ below the jacket. Feeling a little more fashion-forward? Shorten your shirt and suit by 1/2-3/4″, keeping the ration of jacket and shirt cuff the same. Slimmer, shorter suits (jacket and pants as well) are more of the “trendy” suit compared to the “classic” length.

Four ways to speak to your suit maker >>>


4. How your suit pants should fit

Why?
So they match the fit of your nicely tailored jacket. And don’t rip. Or look crazy.

How:
This one isn’t hard, but perhaps more complex than you may have thought. Here are a few things to think about:

1. The obvious place to start is the waist and seat. The waist (the actual waistband) should be snug but not tight, so that it can stay up on its own. The seat (the seam between your two back pockets) should fit slim to the body to avoid any sag. Do NOT put your wallet in your back pocket while wearing a suit, it will just ruin your pants much faster than if you keep it in your jacket pocket.
2. You want the leg to be slim, yet comfortable. These super-slim suits may look good on a lanky guy standing up, but we’re betting you sit a lot more than you stand. So leave a fair bit of room without covering up your fit physique with too much excess fabric.
3. The pant break: This is up to you, but the rule of thumb is that the slimmer the suit, the less the break. And the break is reserved solely for the front of the pant. If you’re getting what is commonly referred to as a “back break,” meaning the pants are starting to rumple around the back of your shoes, take the hemline up a notch—you’re getting into slouch territory.

19 things every man should own >>>


5. Own an analog watch

Why?
Because you’re a grown up. And an analog watch won’t go out of style while we’re still around. So own it: It only ups your style street cred.

How:
There are so many great watches, it’s too hard to suggest just one. We love these for all different occocians, for starters. And if you’re new to the watch game, here’s a little help in starting your new watch collection.


6. How to apply cologne correctly

Why?
Over-spraying can be a real turnoff. Added fragrance of any kind is intended to enhance, not offend.

How:
You have a couple options here:

1. Spray at the pulse points, or the points where your body release heat (not your arm pit or anywhere that also releases body odor). This is the back and the front of the wrists (and I add the center of a bare chest, for good measure.) This allows the fragrance to have a slower release. Then, spray once toward the front of your shirt after you’re dressed as you head out the door. Done.

2. Get dressed, then spray and walk through. A classic method. The fragrance won’t stay on clothing as much through out the day, so it’s less intense. But for a more concentrated fragrance and a more sensitive nose, this method is the way to go.


7. How to read a care label

Why?
So you can wash your own clothes. Are you still living at your mom’s house?

How:
There are just a few thing that you really need to know:

  • Dots – 1 means wash on Low/Cold, 2 means Medium/Warm, 3 means High/Hot
  • Underlined – 1 means Permanent Press, 2 means Delicate/Gentle

Symbols:

  • A bucket with water – Wash
  • Triangle – Bleach
  • Circle in a Square – Tumble Dry (Look for Dots or Lines)
  • Square alone – Dry (The picture will look like what it is indicating: Line/Hang Dry, Drip Dry, Dry Flat)
  • Iron – Iron (That’s an easy one)
  • Circle – Dry Clean (So “X” out means Do NOT Dry Clean)

10 best white sneakers for men >>>


8. How to buy jeans

Why?
When you have a good pair of jeans, people notice. Yet, many men dread buying jeans and buy baggy pairs that do nothing for them.

How:
Denim stretches out. Most people forget that when purchasing. You want to have them fit slightly tight, approaching uncomfortable, but not fully. You still need to button them, obviously. If the waist is a little big but the thighs feel slim, but not cutting off circulation, get them. Wear them a few times, then take in the waist. You would be surprised with how many people have their jeans tailored, even if just a little bit. The leg on the jean should be a little baggy. You want it to look casual. Now, don’t mistake causal for sloppy, as many do. A pair of jeans can still be comfortable and look good. It’s not impossible. You want the fabric to create about two natural “creases” at the bottom of each leg. This way they have a little extra fabric, but they aren’t bunched up.

*Pro tip*: Buy two or three pairs. Once you find a pair that works, I can pretty much guarantee you will want to wear those, and only those, every day. Stock up.


9. How to iron a shirt

Why?
A man should know how to iron his shirt. A crisp shirt not only looks the part, but it shows you care. And what happens when your dress shirt gets bunched up in your carry-on for that important trip? There’s always an iron and a board in a hotel room. Take advantage of it.

How:
Put water in the iron first. Set to COTTON (assuming your dress shirt is cotton, like most).

1. Iron the collar first. Maybe add a little starch just to keep it crisp. Start underneath, and finish on the outside.
2. Follow by ironing the cuffs, also inside first, followed by outside.
3. Then iron the sleeves. The trick here is to make sure the fabric is very smooth and laid down flat. Glide the iron out to the seam on the outside of the shirt. (This is a good time to mention that the water spray on the iron is good for pesky wrinkles.)
4. Iron the front of the shirt. It’s easier than it looksyou just have to be a little patient. Start with the button side, and work the iron around them carefully. Then, move onto the other side and iron it slowly as well.
5. Iron the back of the shirt, flat on the board, allowing all the other fabric to lay down nicely.


10. How to notice a good pair of dress shoes

Why?
They are more important than you think because they’re literally the foundation of any outfit. And they leave a lasting impression. It’s a simple nonverbal statement that says, “I actually give a shit.” If maintained, they are a worthwhile investment. We live in a disposable world, but it doesn’t mean everything has to be. Purchasing a nice pair of shoes that are meant to form around your foot will be more comfortable in the long run, saving you money from buying cheap pair after cheap pair after cheap pair. Don’t wear dress shoes often? All the more reason to have a great pair on standby to impress those who know you as the T-shirt-and-jeans guy.

How:
1. Look for the following key terms to know that your shoes are well-made:

“Full-Grain” – Leather that has not been sanded down, or “corrected” to be smooth. It could contain imperfections and texture.
“Vegetable Dyed” – Natural dyes that age better than chemicals or “chrome” dying, which achieves an unnatural even color and can’t be properly shined.
“Goodyear Welted” – Stitch the soles of the shoe to the uppers, or the leather part, allowing the shoe to breathe and re-sole easily instead of “cemented,” which is using glue to hold the sole and upper together.

With regular maintenance, a pair of $ 300 shoes will last you a very, very long time, and will only look better with age.

8 Beard-Growing Rules for Newbies

In theory, November is dedicated to men growing mustaches for a good cause. In actuality, the month is a celebration of the beard, as many men don’t grow one without the other. It’s also the time of year when guys who have never explored their facial-hair options get brave. A four-week commitment—how hard could that be? Hard, perhaps not, but a challenge nonetheless: The average guy has somewhere between 10,000 and 20,000 hair follicles on his face—and once they start sprouting, keeping them tidy takes a little planning. Here, everything you need to know for your inaugural shave-free adventure.

Rimowa CEO Alexandre Arnault Looks to Rewrite Luxury Retail’s Rules

LOS ANGELES — Alexandre Arnault is aiming to recharge and perhaps redefine what it means to operate a luxury brand at retail these days.
Arnault, whose father is LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton chairman and chief executive Bernard Arnault, rose to cochief executive of Rimowa last year after it was announced the upscale German luggage maker had sold a majority stake to the French conglomerate. The deal made Rimowa the first German maison to enter the LVMH portfolio and ushered in a new direction of sorts with Arnault now helming the business — which counts 150 stores, 13 of which are in the U.S. — and evolving a brand founded in 1898 for the digital age.
Arnault, in town for the opening of the company’s first pop-up concept shop, said the store aims to be a new take on retail. The space is located on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills just steps away from its existing store sandwiched between Dior’s men’s and women’s boutiques.
“Indeed it is the first time that we’ve actually done a pop-up and the thinking behind it was really to do something fun, new and exciting compared to what we have in our retail network, which is sometimes a

8 Beard-Growing Rules for Newbies

In theory, November is dedicated to men growing mustaches for a good cause. In actuality, the month is a celebration of the beard, as many men don’t grow one without the other. It’s also the time of year when guys who have never explored their facial-hair options get brave. A four-week commitment—how hard could that be? Hard, perhaps not, but a challenge nonetheless: The average guy has

Demna Gvasalia — His Own Rules

DURING THE INTERNATIONAL marathon of fashion weeks, a good number of collections follow a familiar formula: Such-and-such an artist or musician or film or personality or geography or historical period inspires X designer. The show notes typically wax poetic about how these influences are expressed in X’s collection, and journalists and bloggers dutifully regurgitate this.
And then there’s Demna Gvasalia, the red-hot designer of Vetements, who starts out each collection by simply listing the garments it is to contain, like some banal shopping list: pants, cocktail dress, uniform top, sweatshirt, bomber jacket. Occasionally, an image sourced from Google represents the style. Sketching comes last, but not before each garment has been rethought, repurposed and injected with a nuclear-strength cool factor.

“The idea was really to work on a collection that is completely product-oriented, one by one. We select what we like, what kind of garment it is, and we see what creative concept to apply to it in order for it to become new or desirable — something that is kind of ‘actuel’ for today,” he says, employing the French word for “current.” “We’re not trying to push the boundaries of fashion, but just make clothes people want to have.”

Judge Rules ‘Muslims Are Coming!’ Ads Allowed In NYC Subways

NEW YORK — The mere mention of the word “Muslim” or the simple discussion of Islam is not political, a federal judge ruled Wednesday, ordering New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority to allow a series of subway advertisements for the documentary “The Muslims Are Coming!“ 

The documentary follows a group of Muslim comedians on a standup tour of the United States in an effort to combat Islamophobia. The film’s production company, Vaguely Qualified Productions, sued the MTA in July after the agency wouldn’t allow a subway ad campaign promoting the film. 

The ads in question were decidedly lighthearted and disarming. One poster reads, “BEWARE: The MUSLIMS are COMING! … And they shall strike with hugs so fierce, you’ll end up calling your grandmother and telling her you love her.” 

According to the MTA, however, the campaign violated a new rule it had instituted in April, barring any ads that expressed an opinion regarding “disputed economic, political, moral, religious or social issues.”

The agency had implemented the rule to safeguard itself from legal challenges it often faced when rejecting ads with sometimes vile political messages. (Courts, for example, had previously forced the MTA to post Islamophobic ads created by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, a hate group.)

The decision to not allow the “Muslims Are Coming!” subway ads, lawyers for the MTA argued, was a “reasonable and viewpoint neutral” decision.  

But in her written decision Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Colleen McMahon found the MTA’s argument insufficient.

“Indeed, the evidence before the court plainly indicates that VQP’s silly advertisements were subject to greater scrutiny than other potentially controversial ads,” she wrote. “An advertisement for Freelancers Union that was accepted by the MTA and displayed in the subways included the following text, in comic book-style font: “Funny how corporations are people when it comes to politics but faceless machines when it comes to PAYING actual people.”

Judge McMahon pointed to other ads the MTA had accepted. There was a CNN ad for the network’s coverage of a Republican presidential debate, which included photos of the candidates alongside quotes, including John Kasich’s: “It is a bad system when billionaires can pick the one who can be the president.”

And the MTA accepted an ad for the television show “Mr. Robot,” which included text saying, “PRIVACY IS A MYTH,” “CORPORATIONS OWN YOUR MINDS” and “BANKS OWN YOUR MONEY.”

The “Mr. Robot” ad in particular, Judge McMahon wrote, was “more blatantly ‘political’ … than are [Vaugley Qualified Production’s] ads for its movie, which take on religious intolerance with gentle humor.” 

The ads for “The Muslim’s Are Coming!” Judge McMahon added, are “not ‘prominently or predominantly political’ — unless we have reached the unhappy moment in this country where the mere mention of one of the three Abrahamic faiths is ‘prominently or predominantly political’ simply because that faith is Islam.” 

“And that the advertisements at issue gently mock prejudice and employ Islamophobia as a comedic device does not make their message ‘prominently or predominately’ political,” the judge added. 

Two of the film’s featured Muslim comedians, Dean Obeidallah and Negin Farsad, applauded the judge’s decision Wednesday. 

“We’re thrilled that the judge in this case recognized that our Muslim background was not a political issue,” said Obeidallah in a statement. “Like so many other comedians, we can continue performing and make people laugh by using our personal lives and experiences as fodder for our shows.”

“Shutting down a couple of American Muslim comedians from spreading delightfulness on the subway? That never made sense,” said Farsad. “This has been a victory of reason and freedom of speech over ridiculousness. MTA subway posters just got way more hilarious and 100% more Muslim.”

Glenn Katon, the legal director at Muslim Advocates, which filed the lawsuit on behalf of Vaguely Qualified Productions, said that “the court decision upholds our claim that sharing humor and stories by and about American Muslims educates the public about the Muslim community and should not be considered political speech,” 

Adam Lisberg, a spokesperson for the MTA, told The Wall Street Journal that the agency is reviewing the judge’s decision.

Selena Gomez Rules #NYFW: Tracking Twitter, Instagram By the Numbers

New York Fashion Week — or #NYFW, to be more specific — has a reach far beyond the more than 61,000 who shared content on Instagram or Twitter. According to numbers gathered by Pixlee, from Sept. 10 to 15, conversations using #NYFW and #NYFW15 had reached 6.6 billion people across Twitter and Instagram. Instagram posts with those hashtags garnered 37 million likes, and on Saturday alone, the conversation reached 2.1 million people. Of submitted photos, 78.4 percent were on Instagram and 21.6 percent were on Twitter. And the top engagement? That went to @selenagomez, posting about “feeling downtown chic” to Instagram from Polo Ralph Lauren. Even though she said “#imnotamodel #tryinsohard,” she obviously is doing something right; the post has 1,520,829 likes, and counting. (Fellow poster @brooklynbeckham also posted from the venue, but his likes were “only” in the hundreds of thousands.)

Texas Must Recognize Gay Marriage On Death Certificate, Judge Rules

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug 5 (Reuters) – A U.S. judge on Wednesday ordered Texas officials to recognize on a state death certificate the surviving spouse in a same-sex marriage whose husband died earlier this year.

The case comes as states such as Texas, which had barred same-sex marriage, grapple with changes brought by the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision in June that made gay marriage legal in the United States.

Texas, where Republican leaders have tried to push back against gay marriage, had balked at recognizing John Stone-Hoskins as the surviving spouse on the death certificate of James Stone-Hoskins, according to court documents.

U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia in San Antonio ordered defendants including Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a Republican, and the state’s acting health commissioner to appear in his court next week as he considers whether they should be held in contempt.

The two were not immediately available for comment.

John and James Stone-Hoskins were lawfully married in New Mexico in August 2014 and James died in January 2015. 

Texas refused to recognize John as the surviving spouse at the time of the death and he is seeking to have Texas change its ways now that gay marriage is legal in all states.

He filed a lawsuit on Wednesday in federal court, which prompted the judge’s order. It said Texas has refused to fill in the space on the death certificate for surviving spouse.

Republican Governor Greg Abbott, Paxton, a county clerk and the acting health commissioner were named as defendants. None of them responded to requests for comment on the case.

“Although John has made numerous attempts to have James’s death certificate corrected to reflect John as James’s surviving spouse, Defendants refuse to make this correction – thus refusing to recognize John and James’s marriage,” the lawsuit said.

Neel Lane, an attorney for Stone-Hoskins, said the reason Texas officials refuse to put John’s name on the death certificate is because at the time his spouse died Texas was aggressively denying same-sex couples the right to marry.

“The only reason that he was denied that is because the state was intent on depriving him of his constitutional right,” he said.

Updating Some of My Rules

Every now and then I like to update my list of personal rules. I find it helpful to have a list so I can later tell an offender “That’s number six on my list of things I don’t do.” It sounds more decisive than simply stating a preference at the moment. 

Scott’s Updated Rules

1. Don’t ask me to remind you of something later. All you are doing is transferring your future failure to me. I’m not going to remember your thing.

2. If you don’t have an opinion on where to eat, I’m going to give you two choices. Please pick one. Ideally, that is the end of the conversation, not the starting point.

3. Don’t mail me anything. And don’t ask me to mail you anything. I no longer allow physical mail in my home. I stop it in the garage and process it for recycling. Physical mail is little more than garbage that gets delivered. (Not counting packages you actually ordered.)

4. Don’t send me to find something for you. I won’t be able to find that email or file you want. I won’t be able to find the mustard in the fridge. I won’t be able to find your keys where you claim you left them. I won’t be able to find anything. If it is lost, and you need it, I can’t solve that problem. I’m busy looking for my own lost stuff. 

5. Don’t me tell long stories when my body is three-quarters turned away and I am literally miming that I am taking a step away from you. That is the “I need to do something right now” look and it is your cue to wrap up your story.

6. If I invite you to do anything – no matter what it is – do not extend that invitation to some other dude because you think he would like it too. You may invite a woman without checking with me first. But I do not accept dude pass-through invitation. I have enough guys in my life. I don’t want to meet your friend even though I am sure he is terrific.

7. Don’t ask me to have a movie night at my house. It is not possible to find three adults who want to watch the same movie at the same time.

8. Don’t ask me to take a walk with you if you plan to bring your phone.

9. If you’re being a scientific moron, I’m going to call you out, even if we’re on the same side of a social debate. For example, don’t say marijuana must be safe because it is a plant. I’m not going to let that go.

10. The time to tell me that you will be late is when you first know it. Not after you are actually late.

Do you have any rules of etiquette you would like to update?

Scott

Bonus joke: Over on Twitter I just tweeted “The real hero is Donald Trump’s barber. That guy sacrifices his reputation every day to keep Trump out of The White House. #therealhero”

That is another example of an “engineered” joke that “solves” for two unrelated events. See how easy humor is?

In Top Tech Blog:

When computers can analyze your blood and suggest chemical additives to reprogram you to better health or higher productivity, is that not a case of robots programming humans? That’s coming.

At the moment, a human still makes the ultimate decision about what chemicals get added to the body. But once Watson does better than the human doctors (which is probably already the case), it is turtles all the way down.

News in Brief: Supreme Court Rules In Favor Of Most Buck-Wild Pride Parade Nation’s Ever Seen

WASHINGTON—Following decades of debate over the constitutional right to same-sex marriage, the U.S. Supreme Court today handed down a 5-4 ruling in favor of the most buck-wild, balls-to-the-wall gay pride parade this country has ever seen. “After reviewing the constitutional underpinnings of this case, the court finds that it is discriminatory for states to deny the right to the most out-of-control, bonkers gay pride parade that anyone could possibly imagine,” Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote in his majority opinion, which outlined at length the elaborate floats, billowing rainbow flags, and phalanxes of outlandishly dressed participants, barely scratching the surface of how completely bananas things are about to get. “This decision confirms what should be obvious: The government cannot prevent a nonstop bacchanal surging through the streets of every American city. We’re talking half-naked lesbians covered in body paint, rollerblading homosexuals in brightly colored Native American headdresses and …

Downton Abbey Meets Agatha Christie in This Sparkling Mystery Drew Farthering loves a good mystery, although he generally expects to find it in the pages of a novel, not on the grounds of his country estate. When a weekend party at Farthering Place is ruined by murder and the police seem flummoxed, Drew decides to look into the crime himself. With the help of his best friend, Nick Dennison, an avid mystery reader, and Madeline Parker, a beautiful and whip-smart American debutante staying as a guest, the three try to solve the mystery as a lark, using the methods from their favorite novels. Soon, financial irregularities at Drew's stepfather's company come to light and it's clear that all who remain at Farthering Place could be in danger. Trying hard to remain one step ahead of the killer–and trying harder to impress Madeline–Drew must decide how far to take this game.

5 Rules for Dating as a Single Parent

It took me three years after my separation (two, post-divorce) to feel comfortable and complete enough in my own skin and start dating seriously.

It didn’t take that long for me to date, obviously, but I hadn’t been pursuing dating with the idea of finding another long-term partner. It’s normal to feel free and giddy and ready for the love and affection we need, after a rough-and-tumble divorce. Marital breaks don’t occur overnight, chances are you’ve gone through quite a long time not getting your needs met far before your divorce occurred. I know many people who started dating around before their divorce was even final, but typically not with wedding bells in mind.

When you’re at a point where you are looking seriously for a long-term partner (or if you’ve happened to fall into that situation without even trying), there are a few guidelines that may make the transition easier for you and your kids.

Get to know each other, alone, first.

Often, alone time isn’t easy to come by for a single parent. However, it’s crucial that you spend the first few weeks (or, better, months) dating privately before introducing your new significant other to your children. Get to know each other one-on-one, make sure you’re a good fit for each other and this relationship has a future before involving your kids’ emotions. Be careful to not mistake the initial attraction and puppy love for real, long-term compatibility.

Take your time.

Take into account the seriousness of your children meeting your significant other. Your children may feel hesitant. They may be jealous that someone else is taking your time away from them. They may be worried about ‘betraying’ their other parent by liking your new beau. They may feel it’s risky to invest their feelings when they’re not sure if this is a long-term arrangement. They may be worried that your new partner won’t like them, or that they won’t like your partner. Take your time and ease into this major transition with your children, keeping all lines of communication open.

Make the initial meeting as low-stress as possible.

Do something fun and low-stress together. Go to a playground, catch a baseball game, hit up Chuck E. Cheese. Take the kids somewhere they’ll have fun, and let them ease into meeting the new person in your life. Children tend to learn and adapt best through play – incorporate that throughout the first few meetings with your new significant other and the transition will ease into place more naturally.

Don’t force it.

Let your children help dictate the speed that you all get to know each other. The last thing you want to do is strain your relationship with your kids, so take it slowly and be mindful of how everyone seems to be adapting. Keep the lines of communication open both with and without your significant other involved. At first your children may not feel comfortable opening up while someone new is present, but that doesn’t mean they’ll always feel that way. While your children should not be allowed to dictate your dating life, their opinions and input should be considered and respected. Don’t force them into a new relationship with your partner. Be patient with them while they adapt.

If you break up, give your children a safe place to feel sad.

A break-up is a situation that your kids don’t have any control over. While it’s not a good idea to stay in a bad relationship because of your children, it’s important to understand they will feel a sense of longing and loss for your partner, just as you may.

Talk to your kids and make sure they feel safe confiding their feelings about the situation to you. Don’t draw it out, and don’t talk to them until you’re absolutely sure things are final. There’s nothing worse than telling your kids it’s over and then having to say it’s not. If the break is final, be gentle with your children about it, and allow them to be sad. Feel comfortable sharing your own sadness with them as well; it’s okay for your children to see you’re human and dealing with the same sense of loss they feel.

Introducing someone new (or potentially a few new people if your partner has children) into your family unit doesn’t have to be a mess. If you’re both willing to take things slowly and keep communication open, you’ll have better luck with the transition in the long run.

The Beauty Rules According to Salma Hayek: Here’s What You Need to Know

Salma Hayek

A quick look at Salma Hayeks itinerary reads like a whirlwind international tour. With back-to-back trips to Lebanon, London, Venice, and Cannes on her schedule this month—not to mention regular sprints home to Paris, where she lives with her husband, François-Henri Pinault, and seven-year-old daughter, Valentina—you might think jet lag was par for the course. And yet, in town for a morning television appearance on a sunny day in Manhattan, the actress radiates the healthy glow and easy charisma that’s more commonly associated with a good night’s sleep.

“I’m excited about the things that I’m doing,” says Hayek of the vitality she draws from her upcoming projects, which include producing an animated film based on Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet and acting in The Tale of Tales and Sausage Party. “It’s like being super tired, but then you have a very hot date,” she explains with a laugh, “Somehow you just get the energy back.” There’s always her arsenal of trusted beauty secrets. Four years ago, Hayek launched Nuance, an expansive collection of lipsticks, blushes, bronzers, face serums, shampoos, and conditioners inspired by her grandmother. These days, it’s safe to say that she’s got the art of looking good down to a science. Here, she shares her six essential beauty rules—whether it’s finding a moisturizer that defies the drying effects of transatlantic travel or maintaining her hourglass silhouette without stepping foot in a gym.

 

TURN EVERY MOMENT INTO A STEALTH WORKOUT
I don’t have a lot of time for fitness, but my days are filled with activity, so I’ve learned to use every second. I have been working with a woman in London who has taught me how to hold my body in a way that makes everything a workout—even brushing my teeth. You can brush your teeth like this (slouches) or like this (stands up straight with her elbow at shoulder height). She has really transformed my body. Just be conscious of holding your body in the right position—don’t go up the stairs with your knees, go up with your butt! Don’t waste a second.

KNOW WHEN TO WASH YOUR FACE
The most important rule in beauty is this: Always wash your face before you go to bed. It’s very important to cleanse at night. I use a chamomile cleanser if I haven’t been wearing makeup, and an oil cleanser if I am wearing makeup—it takes everything off. Rule number two: Never wash your face in the morning. Your skin regenerates all the things that you lost during the day when you’re sleeping—restoring the right pH balance, producing the right oils, collagen—everything comes back to the skin. Then you go and wash it off? Why? My grandmother taught me this.

PUT YOUR MOISTURIZER TO THE FLIGHT TEST
For a good face cream, this is my test: I go back and forth from Los Angeles to Europe many times a year. If I put a cream on before takeoff and my skin survives the drying flight, then it’s a fantastic cream. My AM/PM moisturizer does that. It uses tepezcohuite, which is an ingredient that is used in Mexican hospitals for cut and burned skin, so it’s really regenerative. I put the cream on when I get on the flight, and when I arrive, my skin still looks good.

EMBRACE NEXT DAY HAIR
My hair is so curly, so sometimes it’s at its best the day after, the second day, or the third day after I get it done. It’s not as frizzy. I have a fantastic texturizer that I use as a dry shampoo to make it look brand-new again.

ALWAYS HAVE MORE THAN ONE SIGNATURE FRAGRANCE
You have to go with your mood. You should not limit yourself to one thing—you’re a lot more complicated than that. I love the new Bottega Veneta fragrance called Knot, it’s really fresh and elegant. For something a little more sexy and mysterious, I like Narciso Rodriguez’s For Her. It depends how I feel.

MASTER THE ART OF CONTOURING
This is embarrassing to say but I wear makeup a lot. Not every day, I try to let my skin rest, but when I do, I shade my face to give it more depth and to slim my jaw. People think you contour only to get cheekbones, but if you study your face and realize that dark colors will diminish features and lighter colors will bring out features, you can design the face you want. It’s exciting to paint your own portrait. I love to start with a natural-looking foundation as a base. And even if you feel dead, you won’t look like it if you have on blush.

15 Iconic Front Women Who Rewrote the Beauty Rules: From Tina Turner to Florence Welch

Tina Turner

“The girl anchors the stage, sucks in the male gaze, and depending who she is, throws her own gaze back into the audience,” writes Kim Gordon in her recent book, Girl in a Band. The legendary Sonic Youth front woman, who celebrates her 62nd birthday today, has done plenty of kohl-rimmed gaze-throwing in her decades commanding an audience. The sooty eye makeup is just one of the ways that Gordon has managed to set herself apart from the men she shared a stage with. “I . . . did everything possible to maintain an identity as an individual within the band,” she explained. Aside from mastering bass and vocals (not to mention a penchant for penning impactful no-wave lyrics), she also employed a grunge, but unquestionably feminine beauty equation—involving a calculated swipe of red lipstick and, in her words, “dumb[ing] down my middle-class look by messing with my hair.”

It’s a hair and makeup tactic that also worked for front woman Debbie Harry, who emphasized her angular bone structure with exaggerated blush and stage-ready eye shadow. No Doubt lead singer Gwen Stefani took the experimental glam approach and ran with it, donning every style from bantu knots to pink, blue, and bleached-blonde hair. But not all female leaders of the band are eager to look so feminine. Patti Smith admittedly borrowed from the boys, famously “machete-ing [her] way out of the folk era” by cutting her jet black hair to resemble Keith Richards’s choppy crop. And psychedelic singer Janis Joplin didn’t mind blending in with the flowing air-dried hair and makeup-free faces of her bandmates, her fearless voice was enough of a standout. In honor of Gordon’s birthday, a look back at the best girl-in-a-band beauty.

Rules for the Runway

The first Fashion Week (then called Press Week) was held in New York in 1943. Today, there are two Fashion Weeks in the city each year, in February and September. New York’s version is considered one of the four major fashion events in the world (the others are in Paris, Rome, and Milan). If you’re lucky enough to be invited to a fashion show, there are some general rules for behavior that you should observe.

1. Invitations come at a premium, so remember that you’re the guest of a fashion house and be sure to RSVP your invitation.

2. Be punctual. The show will not begin late just because you are, which means your seat will be filled before you can beg for forgiveness.

3. You’re not obliged to wear clothes from the designer of the show you’re attending unless you’re an A-list celebrity who will be photographed.

4. Take your seat, not Kim Kardashian’s. If the seat does not have your name on it, it’s not yours. A certain A-list celebrity once took my seat, but I had no problem getting it back.

5. If you’re sitting in the front row, don’t cross your legs. With the different lengths of hemlines these days, the photographers might capture more than they should.

6. Manage your accessories. If you have chopsticks in your hair, remove them for the guests behind you. Turn off your cell phone and keep your umbrella pointed down. If you’re carrying a large bag, place it close to your chair so no one can trip over it.

7. Never chew gum here or anywhere else in public. You might end up in an unflattering video.

8. It’s okay to use your smartphone, but do so discreetly. It’s distracting to the people around you otherwise.

9. Once the show begins, stay in your seat. It’s rude to leave for any reason except an emergency.

10. Clapping for the designer at the end of the show is fine, but hooting and waving your arms as if you were at a football game is not.

Bill Maher Calls For Ban On Fraternities In ‘New Rules’

Bill Maher is calling for the end of fraternities.

The host closed out his “New Rules” segment on “Real Time with Bill Maher” Friday night with a plea to the president.

“New rule,” Maher said. “Before he leaves office, President Obama must send in the National Guard to desegregate American’s last bastion of societal-approved racism: college fraternities.”

Maher went on to compare fraternities to the Islamic State group because of the hazing techniques used by some in the Greek system.

“Since 1970, there’s been at least one hazing-related death every year as pledges routinely endure alcohol poisoning, sleep deprivation, waterboarding, being dressed in diapers, buried in trash, force-fed cat food,” he said. “Jesus, why not just pledge ISIS?”

Though something called the “death tax” sounds ominous, Bill Maher explained on “Real Time” why taxing inherited wealth is actually a good thing. Namely, he just called out some kids who will inherit fortunes for being “entitled jerks.”

Maher’s examples include Kylie Jenner texting while driving after Bruce Jenner’s deadly accident and Paris Hilton’s brother Conrad Hughes Hilton III needing to be restrained on a flight.

And while those stories are pretty shocking, we’re pretty sure Maher got the facts wrong when it came to saying Hilton’s proper title. But you can be the judge.

Meet LuxePineapple: The “Un-Subscription” Beauty Box Service That’s Breaking All The Rules

The subscription box phenomenon has really changed the way men and women get their hands on new products to sample before they buy.

Beauty industry vet Liz Ranney and her team at Austin-based LuxePineapple, are blazing a new trail with their customer curated “un-subscription” box.

Enjoy my interview with Liz where we talk about how LuxePineapple differs from other beauty boxes, the future of beauty box subscription services and what’s next for the brand.

2015-03-12-1426189974-3250387-lpbox.jpg

Tell me about what motivated you to create LuxePineapple.

Liz Ranney: We’ve been in the beauty industry for our entire careers. Until the inception of LuxePineapple in 2013 we were on the professional side; LuxePineapple is our first direct-to-consumer venture. I started the planning process for LuxePineapple about 6 years ago when the economy took a downturn. Because working in the professional beauty arena requires a certain “look” I was seeking ways to keep my beauty needs met without sacrificing the brands I wanted, given my smaller budget. We have always maintained one simple goal: To source the best in skincare and cosmetics, and offer them at amazing prices with free shipping. LuxePineapple is here to remind women (and men-we have a few of those, too) to take a few minutes to celebrate themselves. We all deserve the small luxuries. We want every single package we ship to feel like a present when it arrives and to absolutely make someone’s day. Discount doesn’t need to look like discount when it arrives in the mail.

What makes LuxePineapple different from the typical box services currently available?

LR: We call ourselves the un-subscription box. LuxePineapple isn’t a subscription-based service, nor do we plan to ever become one. Our “Boxes of Joy” are released 3-4 times per month and, with the exception of the quarterly mystery boxes, we show the contents and full description of each “Box of Joy” as they are released. With our boxes each Lovely can pick and choose which products meet her needs, wants, personal style and beauty budget. Beauty is personal and we leave the choices completely up to the consumer.

Do you think LuxePineapple has influenced traditional beauty box subscription services to allow customers more choice when it comes to what is included in their boxes?

LR: I wouldn’t say we’ve influenced any of the traditional beauty box subscription services. What we have done is given consumers a totally different option to try products in a budget-friendly and fun way by involving them in the process. We are interactive in that we include our Pineapple Lovelies in conversations about beauty so that we know what they want.

What do you think is in the future of beauty box subscriptions? Do you believe they will remain as they are now or do you believe they will transition to look more like the LuxePineapple model?

LR: Every new trend has a rise and fall; there’s always a “next evolution”. Beauty subscription boxes seem to be taking a choice-oriented direction, which I think is great! Give people what they want.

Beauty consumers are inundated with choices and there are new companies hopping on the subscription box bandwagon daily. The successful subscription-based services have adapted to offer choices via personalized quizzes and some options to customize product selections.

What’s next for the LuxePineapple brand?

LR: Spring 2015 is major for us, as we have been in the planning phase of my “pet project” for almost a year and it will soon be ready for release. It’s something completely brand new to us. We have the collaborations with [a few] indie brands coming in the next several weeks. We at LuxePineapple have been incredibly blessed and are adding to our community of Pineapple Lovelies daily. We have contests and giveaways scheduled on our social media platforms. A newish addition is utilizing our social media to spread positive messages and give back to our local communities which we hope will motivate others to do the same.

Liz and her team are doing amazing things. LuxePineapple offers an exciting and fresh take on beauty boxes. Featuring some of the most popular brands in the industry, LuxePineapple attracts enthusiasts who enjoy customized beauty at a reasonable price. Ready to order a “Box of Joy”?! Visit LuxePineapple to get started.

30 Days of Online Dating: I Should Have Broken the Rules

This is a modern dating experiment. One girl. Five dating sites. Hundreds of chats. Thirty days. Thirty dates. Eighteen guys. (?) boyfriend. To start at the beginning, click here — or jump right in at date eleven below.

Date 11/30: Match Nathan*

My second date with Match Nathan. Our first was a meh dinner/drinks session, but thanks to my pesky rules, I had no choice but to say yes to tonight – dinner at Baco Mercat followed by a one-man show at Mark Taper Forum.

A pre-date Gchat from me to one of my closest friends:

Match Nathan is picking me up in an hour. I’m worried I’m going to seem unexcited/jerkish — especially given how nice he is. I can feel myself doing the thing where I get bratty and over someone, so I’m sort of thinking I might make myself a little pre-date cocktail to tone down my inner a-hole haha.

F. I’m out of vodka. 60 minutes to make a liquor run, consume said liquor, and get myself gussied up for this date. Absolutely necessarily in that order.

Match Nathan had both texted and emailed his excitement earlier that day. Multiple times. I replied to the first two, but found I was short on deep breaths for the rest of them. It’s not totally his fault — my anxiety is at an all-time high trying to juggle the whole scheduling multiple dates a day thing, and slogging my way through 18,000 cheese-laden conversations with virtual strangers every hour. And I’m PMS-ing.

2015-03-02-jesspms.gif

Be nice. Just be nice. Just be f*cking nice.

He’s late. Not only is he late, but he fails to give any updates until this text message:

MN: Downstairs in 1 min…

Is that an order? I slowly lace up my shoes, freshen up my lipgloss, grab my bag, and head toward the door. He calls. I give my phone the death stare down before answering. “Hi, I’ll be right out.” I exit the building to find him frantically plodding toward me. “We’re going to be late. I couldn’t figure out what was taking you so long.

This is not going to go well.

On our previous date, when discussing downtown, I explained that as much as I love certain aspects of that part of the city, I find it confusing to navigate. So the first thing he asks me to do on this date…is navigate. That better be some extra dry humor. The second thing he asks me to do on this date is to use my “fancy phone” to let Baco Mercat know we’re running late.

This was a terrible idea.

The third thing he asks me to do on this date is to explain why I didn’t reply to his “funny GIF.” Because it wasn’t “funny”? I focus all my attention on the scenery. Self-meditation is a thing, right?

At the restaurant, MN takes it upon himself to order for me — without taking it upon himself to ask me what I’d like first. I take it upon myself to call our server back over and revise said order, adding another Tito’s soda to the tab while I’m at it. Dinner is a rushed affair, aside from a five minute disagreement between MN and our server over the correct pronunciation of ‘feta.’ I watch in fascination, unable to eat, all the while wishing I had made this cocktail a double.

Post-dins, we scurry over to Mark Taper, get our hands on a couple drinks and a container of gummy bears at the cart outside — er, I get one hand on mine, as MN yanks the other toward the theater’s doors. As we reach the entrance, we run smack into a very dear friend of his. Of course. Hi, sir. Lovely to meet you. No, this is not what you think. No need to remember my name. Can we go inside now, please.

With barely a word, I run to the ladies’ room. All attempts at breathing into a paper towel are futile. It was worth a shot. MN is hopping impatiently — but an enamored impatience! — on his toes upon my return.

We walk toward the front. He does have lovely seats.

MN: Oh nice — we have the whole row to ourselves.

Um. For what, exactly? And if we have so much room, why are you leaning your very broad self halfway into my seat?

MN: Make sure you turn your phone off.

Thank you. Am I a child?

The show — Humor Abuse — is delightful. My left obliques get a stellar workout, thanks to my aggressive lean-out. (Sorry, Sheryl Sandberg.) Regardless, I have never been so happy to see a curtain close in my life. Thank God. Now let’s get out of this freezing cold, into your car, and back to Beverly Hills.

MN: I want to go check out this fountain over here.

I can sort of understand how he is unable to read the emotions undoubtedly plastered across my face — but this shiver is not subtle. There’s not so much of a want as there is a need where your jacket is concerned, but that’s cool — don’t even offer. Let’s check out this stupid fountain that looks like every other stupid fountain that was ever invented. And then let’s get lost on the way back to your car because you decide to “try a new way.” And you should probably yell at the parking attendant while you’re at it, too. Because this is all his fault.

Now, there are a lot of ways this night could end.

What? No. No. There is only one way this night can end. As soon as possible and with me alone in my own bed.

What’s that? That’s not how it ends?

MN: Want to go grab a drink?

I take full responsibility for this part. I didn’t know what to do. I panicked. I had already revealed that my tomorrow was empty. What’s my excuse? I’m having a terrible time, despite the fact that you’re a nice guy who planned what should have been a delightful evening? I can’t say that. So instead, I say yes. Yes, I would love to continue on this four and a half hour (so far) nightmare of a ride.

He points us toward The Varnish, taking the scenic route down Skid Row, because he’s sure a girl like me hasn’t seen a thing like that.

This is so romantic.

I love The Varnish. It is so hard for me to have a terrible time at the The Varnish. Let’s just say, my plan to stick to one drink goes right out the window when I realize he’s settling in for the long haul. I kick back three immediately. Maybe if I get alcohol poisoning, I can finally go home?

At one point, he asks me to tell him about some of my most awkward dates.

I decide it best not to lead with the one we’re currently on.

When we finally leave, I do a veritable sprint to the car. He catches up, jogging over to my side of the vehicle. I think he’s opening my door; he thinks he’s going in for a kiss.

It’s not a stellar combination.

MN: I’m sorry. I —

Me: No, it’s totally fine. I uh —

I turn, open the door, and strap myself in.

There is complete silence and zero eye contact for the entire drive home.

But he really is such a nice guy?

How to Find a Good Divorce Mediator? Your Five Rules of Thumb

If you came to the conclusion that you prefer to handle your divorce through mediation — you have made the right choice. Choosing a good divorce mediator is an essential step, and crucial to the success of the process. Here are five rules of thumb in choosing the right mediator for your divorce.

1. A good divorce mediator makes it easy and affordable for you.

Look for a divorce mediator who offers a flat fee for all the services they provide, as well as a free divorce consultation that includes a complete marital estate assessment. That way, you and your spouse know up front what is involved. Also, make sure your divorce mediator assists with the administrative filing of the divorce decree.

2. A good choice for a divorce mediator is an expert who is dedicated exclusively to the practice of divorce mediation.

Often times, you will find divorce mediators who are primarily private divorce litigation attorneys who practice divorce mediation as a secondary specialty. Although they can also be effective, a divorce litigation attorney is trained with a mindset that may not always be ideal for mediation. They are trained to do battle for their client, and not necessarily as trained in conflict management and mediation.

Other mediators split their practice between therapy and mediation. These are two completely different mindsets, and a professional who focuses on divorce mediation only has more experience and tools, that you will benefit from.

3. A good divorce mediator is great at problem solving.

These are professionals who are excellent in offering various options to facilitate a complex situation. You should be able to notice that already in your free consultation meeting.

4. A good divorce mediator must be compassionate.

The best divorce mediators are very much invested in you. A genuine caring and concern for both you and your family’s longer-term financial and emotional wellness should be obvious on a first impression. Also, someone free of racial or gender bias, and a pleasant person to work with.

5. A good divorce mediator does everything to ensure you come out of the process with a workable agreement and a fair settlement, and will never be the catalyst to your divorce.

That’s why a good mediator would not take your case unless (s)he believes that you and your spouse will be successful. In assessing this, for example, a good divorce mediator should ask whether you both agree that your marriage is over and you are each ready to move on. If either or both of you are not yet at this point, they should refer you to help you decide what each of you really want.

Good luck!

High Court Rules Nagging Constitutional

2014-05-19-MV5BMjIyMjgyNzA3OV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwOTUxNzYxMTE._V1_SY317_CR00214317_AL_.jpg

What will be the effect on marriage of the recent ruling by the state’s highest court that according to the Times struck “down a statute that made it a felony to communicate with someone ‘in a manner likely to cause annoyance or harm.'”(“Top Court Champions Freedom to Annoy,” NYT, 5/13/14)?

The Times went on to point out that,

“Ronald L. Kuby, one of the lawyers involved in the original case, called the decision a victory for ‘the demented and dissident, the crazies and the critical, the malcontents and the maladjusted–amen.'”

The ruling came in response to the case of Raphael Golb who according to the Times, “waged a yearslong campaign against academic rivals of his father, Norman Golb, a Dead Sea Scrolls scholar.” First of all Raphael is plainly the kind of kid that every academic dreams of having. Dogs will die for you, but children these days rarely fight their parents’ intellectual turf wars. However, more importantly, what the New York State’s Court of Appeals has done in one fell swoop is to turn something that was considered problematic into socially acceptable behavior. In so doing experts in the field of matrimony predict that the decision will ring a death knell for the marriage counseling industry which has thrived on the attempt to curb nagging among both married and unmarried couples. In some circles the decision by the court has been compared to the repeal of the Volstead Act, which originally ushered in prohibition. With the repeal of both The Volstead Act and the statute prohibiting annoying behavior a couple can now come home after a hard day’s work, mix a few martinis and spend the evening fighting.

Judge Rules Billboard Music Awards Can Use Michael Jackson Hologram

Judge Rules Billboard Music Awards Can Use Michael Jackson HologramLAS VEGAS (AP) — A federal judge ruled Friday that the Billboard Music Awards can use a hologram of deceased pop icon Michael Jackson at this weekend's show, rejecting efforts from tech companies seeking to block the digital performance. Judge Kent Dawson said there wasn't enough evidence to show the planned 3-D image would violate patents held by Hologram USA Inc. and Musion Das Hologram Ltd. The companies own rights to technology known for digitally resurrecting deceased rapper Tupac Shakur at the 2012 Coachella music festival. …
