Hanes Celebrating Michael Jordan With Trading Card Promotion

Hanes is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its partnership with Michael Jordan by putting special trading cards into 800,000 packages of its Comfort Flex Fit boxer briefs.
And 10 of those packs will actually be signed by the basketball legend.
Jordan and Hanes first teamed up in 1989 when the athlete scored his 10,000th point and hit “The Shot” at the buzzer in game five of the NBA playoffs against the Cleveland Cavaliers to give his Chicago Bulls the win.
“Michael has always had his pick of brands to endorse, and we are incredibly honored that he has chosen to stay with ours for the past three decades,” said Sidney Falken, chief branding officer of Hanesbrands. “This is one of the longest-running and most successful partnerships of its type to date — a powerful statement about Michael and Hanes.”
A total of 170 different Fleer trading cards have been produced by The Upper Deck Company, each with a photo of Jordan from one of his Hanes advertisements. They are packaged in five-card packs.
“Through the years, we’ve certainly benefited from Michael’s enduring popularity with such a wide audience,” Falken added. “MJ continues to be one of the most recognizable people in the world, and we’re thrilled

Jamie Otis Is Celebrating Christmas Nearly One Month Late — but She Has a Good Reason

There’s a very good reason why Married at First Sight star Jamie Otis just got around to celebrating Christmas with her family — they had the flu during the actual holiday.

“Family Road Trip!” she wrote on social media Saturday, alongside a series of sweet pictures of her and husband Doug Hehner spending quality time with their four-month-old daughter Henley Grace.

“Heading up to see my family for Christmas🎄 Yeeep, Xmas!🙈 ,” she added, explaining, “We had the flu the weekend we were suppose to go up.🤧

RELATED VIDEO: Meet Henley Grace! ‘MAFS’s’ Jamie Otis & Doug Hehner Introduce Newborn After Loss: ‘She’s A Gift From Her Big Brother’

Otis, 31, also added that getting a good family photo to document the trip was harder than she expected.

“Trying to take a family pic to document the trip is seriously the worst…we ended up taking a selfie in the parking lot,” she wrote.

RELATEDJamie Otis Reveals If She Would Let Daughter Henley Find Love on Married at First Sight

Following the birth of their daughter in August, the couple — who met for the first time as Otis walked down the aisle towards Hehner on Lifetime’s hit show — opened up to PEOPLE about why they were relishing every second with their newborn.

The reality star revealed that shortly after losing their son — whom the couple named Johnathan Edward — four months into Otis’ pregnancy last summer, the couple began trying to have another baby. And finally, on Johnathan’s due date in December, they found out they were expecting their daughter.

“I’m not usually superstitious, but I definitely think Henley was a gift from her big brother,” Otis revealed.

But just because Otis met her husband on Married at First Sight doesn’t mean she’d be willing to let her daughter do the same.

“Quite honestly, I don’t know if I would,” Otis said in a clip from the reality show shared exclusively with PEOPLE.

“Then I have to remember that that’s how I found love and if I had never opened my mind and my heart, I wouldn’t be standing here with my beautiful daughter.”

Either way, the reality star isn’t ready to think quite that far ahead yet. “Let’s just pump the brakes!” she added.

Watch How The New ‘Power Rangers’ Movie Is Celebrating Diversity

On Friday, the latest “Power Rangers” movie will be released in the United States, marking a new, more diverse era in the popular franchise. 

The original 1993 series caught some backlash for playing on racial stereotypes ― specifically by having an Asian woman play the “yellow” ranger and a black man play the “black” ranger (who fought in a “hip-hop” style). 

But it seems as though the new reboot, directed by Dean Israelite, is seeking to expand the world of the rangers by including a cast that is not only racially diverse but also intersect at other less-represented identities. 

The reboot features a strong Asian male lead as the black ranger, a refreshing casting in light of Hollywood’s ongoing issue with positioning Asian men as heroes in mainstream films. In addition to that, the new Power Rangers also include a queer character played by Mexican-American actress Becky G and an autistic character, played by black actor RJ Cyler. 

“There was no specific look to what the characters had to look like,” Becky G explained in a recent interview with MTV. “We could be anybody.” 

It looks like at least one Hollywood movie has gotten the memo ― diversity isn’t just about filling quotas, but creating characters with truly unique experiences and backgrounds. 

From a show with one-dimensional and often stereotypical POC characters the franchise has morphed into a reboot with characters of diverse ethnicities, abilities, and sexual orientations ― proving that together, we really can do anything. 

Watch the video above to see how “Power Rangers” has begun to evolve.

Mostly Free Ideas For Celebrating Valentine’s Day Throughout The Year

Valentine’s Day … I never truly understood it. As history would have it, loved ones exchange flowers and candies in the name of St. Valentine. It’s supposed to be this big day of romance. But, my philosophy is: when you love someone, you shouldn’t need a holiday to tell you to do nice things for them; we should have our own Valentine’s Days throughout the year whenever we feel like it.

Life is too short to not let your loved ones know you love them and let them know often, be it a parent, sibling, significant other, pet — anyone! If you ask me, Valentine’s Day should be celebrated throughout the year. I also believe that showing someone you love them does not need to be extravagant especially if you don’t have the funds for that and thus, here are some of my ideas on how to “celebrate Valentine’s Day” throughout the year.

1. Say it in a text message.

Send a loved one an unexpected text message to show them you love them and are thinking of them. Insert cute emoji, maybe a cute drawing too? You could even send a photo like a meme or a photo of something from one of your inside jokes.

2017-02-10-1486730641-9955465-IMG_7544.PNG

2. Write a love note the old fashioned way.

Grab a pen and paper to handwrite a love note. Slip it in your significant other’s lunch bag, briefcase, or purse so that they can get a nice surprise when they get to the office. You don’t have to be a poet to write a love note or even be the world’s best speller — just get something thoughtful down on paper.

3. Make them breakfast in bed.

Thanks to the power of the Internet and wide range of DIY cooking shows, we can all somewhat be chefs now. When your loved one is sleeping, sneak into the kitchen and whip them up a restaurant style breakfast. My favorite breakfast? Pancakes! Resources like My Great Recipes, Food Network, and Tasty offer a bunch of great ideas for a wide range of taste buds.

4. Pick them up a just because gift.

At a store or shopping online and see something that you know someone you love would like? Pick it up for them and give it to them just because you were thinking of them.

5. Plan an unexpected night out.

Have Friday night movie nights always been your thing? This Friday surprise your loved one with dinner at their favorite restaurant, a museum tour, or tickets to see a show — whatever it is that they have a different interest in besides movie night. For creative date ideas, check out our article Date Ideas Inspired by Great RomComs.

6. Just listen.

We often ask people, “how are you, how was your day?” But how often do you actually just sit back and listen? How often do you ask questions to get more information on how someone’s day actually was? Show you care by truly listening. Be a better listener by making the conversation more about them and less about you, ask engaging questions, and give the person speaking your undivided attention (no fiddling with your cellphone).

7. Do a chore for them that you know they don’t like doing or simply need help with.

Does she often do the laundry and you take out the trash? Does her car need to be cleaned but she hates cleaning it? Take the initiative to do something for your loved one that they typically do but either dislike doing and could use a helping hand with. Just do it for them without saying anything. Imagine the look on their face when they see it has been done and you did it without hesitation?

8. Send them a letter via snail mail.

In the age of email and texting, how many people do you know who still send letters via snail mail? I can’t think of any! The closest my circle comes to this is sending cards around the holidays. Send a loved one you don’t get to see or talk to nearly as much as you’d like to good old-fashioned snail mail letting them know you are thinking of them and are hoping they are well.

9. Show up with their favorite food.

As I write this one, I think of my one grandma. She loves when I make her apple cake! Whenever I visit her, I try to bring something that she likes to eat because I know doing so always brings an extra big smile to her face! Show up unexpectedly and bring food!

As another calendar Valentine’s Day turns a corner, may your heart be filled with great love!

Who Kicked Off Coachella in Festival-Themed Underwear? See How All Your Favorite Stars Are Celebrating Weekend 1

Everyone celebrates the annual arrival of music festival season in their own unique way. While many of us are busy getting our finest fringed garments out of storage, dusting off our vast collection of fanny packs, and dyeing our hair some technicolor hue in anticipation, one celebrity festival attendee has taken Coachella-mania in an entirely new direction.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Instagram SelfieInstagram

Poppy Delevingne clearly has an unparalleled passion for music, the desert, and the hippie-themed attire that naturally goes with both. So much so, she went ahead and had the name of her favorite festival embroidered across her underwear. The socialite posted a rather intimate shot to her Instagram account on Thursday night, showing off her new pair of briefs courtesy of Cheekfrills, simply captioned, “Ready.”

But perhaps this isn’t so much a testament to her love for the annual music-centric, star-studded weekend, but rather a logical extension of her days of the week underwear collection. After all, how else is she supposed to know which pairs to pack on her weekend excursion?

And Poppy’s not the only one celebrating this yearly sojourn into the desert. Tons of celebs are posting festival-themed pics in anticipation of their annual excuse to let loose and party for three days in a bikini top and short shorts under the guise of listening to music. But while the feeling of the festival may be footloose and fancy-free, we all know the actual effort that goes into those boho looks is anything but.

While for some, it’s simply an excuse to reconnect with their BFFs, like Jasmine Tookes and Rachel Scott:

Celebrating 20 Years, SITE Santa Fe Shows New Commissions and Collaborations

Celebrating 20 Years: SITE Santa Fe’s Collaborative Spirit

A significant anniversary invites a retrospective view, and for SITE Santa Fe’s 20th, the institution is doing just that, in a yearlong series of exhibitions featuring artists who have presented major works at SITE in the past. But for this 20th-anniversary celebration, SITE is not only looking back at its own history, or reprising past projects, rather refreshingly the exhibits that comprise “SITE 20 Years/20 Shows” take the form of new work, commissions, and collaborations.

Ann Hamilton, The common SENSE (detail), 2014-2015. Courtesy of the artist.

SITE Santa Fe opened in 1995 with its first International Biennial: Longing and Belonging: From the Faraway Nearby, curated by Bruce Ferguson, and has since produced eight biennials, and over 80 exhibitions, helping to launch or galvanize the careers of numerous curators and artists. The notion of reconnecting with artists who have contributed to the institution’s history, taking a look at then and now, exemplifies SITE’s mission to form strong bonds with the international art community while cultivating deep roots within the community of Santa Fe and the wider Southwest region.

Amy Cutler, Cautionary Trail, 2005. Courtesy of the artist and Leslie Tonkonow Artworks + Projects, New York.

Presented in three installments, over spring, summer and fall, “SITE 20 Years/20 Shows” first opened in March with work by Gregory Crewdson, Deborah Grant, Roxy Paine, Mary Reid Kelley with Patrick Kelley, Rose B. Simpson, and Jessica Stockholder. The fall installment, opening October 23, will feature installations by Terry Allen, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller, Wangechi Mutu with Edgar Arceneaux, and Susan Silton with The Crowing Hens. The summer exhibition of “SITE 20 Years/20 Shows” is currently on view, until October 4, with installations and collaborations by Ann Hamilton, Janine Antoni with choreographer Stephen Petronio, Amy Cutler with musician Emily Wells and hairdresser Adriana Papaleo, Harmony Hammond with artist Francis Cape, and Dario Robleto with historian Patrick Feaster and Lance Ledbetter of Dust-to-Digital Records. While the wall texts throughout the show acknowledge the contributions of each of the artists to SITE Santa Fe’s exhibitions of the past–Ann Hamilton, for instance, showed in the first Biennial and Janine Antoni showed a major solo show at SITE in 2002–the focus rests on the artists’ current practices.

Dario Robleto, The Pulse Armed With a Pen (An Unknown History of the Human Heartbeat), 2014. Courtesy the artist and Inman Gallery, Houston. Photo: Paul Hester, The Menil Collection.

The installations in the current configuration of “SITE 20 Years/20 Shows” exhibit few connections between them, with each occupying its own discrete room in the gallery. But if there is one conceptual thread running throughout, it is the notion of collaboration–collaboration among artists, between artists and institutions, artists and choreographers, musicians, historians, and so on. A successful collaborative effort can achieve results that a single artist couldn’t produce on her own, a kind of synergistic effect that provides new contexts and new meanings to an artist’s work. In an unsuccessful collaboration, on the other hand, compromises become more apparent than cooperation, resulting in a situation where one person’s vision might supersede another to the detriment of the whole artwork. The wide range of artistic collaboration, both successful and unsuccessful, can be found in SITE Santa Fe’s current exhibition.

Janine Antoni and Stephen Petronio, Honey Baby, 2013. Copyright Janine Antoni and Stephen Petronio; Courtesy of the artists and Luhring Augustine, New York.

Janine Antoni’s collaboration with the choreographer Stephen Petronio, for instance, sheds new light on Antoni’s practice with regard to the grotesque and expressive potential of the human body–in this case a male dancer’s lithe form, emulating the movements of the body in utero–in a somewhat disturbing but entrancing video. And Dario Robleto’s collaboration with sound historians Patrick Feaster and Lance Ledbetter results in a series of small vinyl albums–recordings of the human heart and early gospel spirituals–with extensive liner notes that convey a historical depth and artistic sensibility (despite the somewhat twee aesthetic), enhancing our apprehension of these early recordings visually, textually, and sonically.

Harmony Hammond and Francis Cape, Angle of Repose, 2015, installation view. Courtesy of the artists and SITE Santa Fe. Photo: Eric Swanson.

The collaborative installation by painter Harmony Hammond and sculptor Francis Cape, Angle of Repose (2015), on the other hand, is less apparent as a collaboration at all. Comprised of one of Hammond’s layered monochrome paintings leaning against a wall and a collection of re-made handcrafted furniture by Cape, the two works are somewhat independent of each other, but their proximity yields a new conversation between the works. Their pairing seems more like a very astute curatorial choice, rather than a true collaboration that results in one unified work.

Amy Cutler, installation view, 2015. Courtesy of the artist and SITE Santa Fe. Photo: Eric Swanson.

While Hammond and Cape’s collaboration demonstrates restraint and subtlety, Amy Cutler’s installation commits the sin of sensorial overload. Created with musician Emily Wells and hairdresser Adriana Papaleo, the installation sets out to devise a three-dimensional version of one of Cutler’s surreal paintings. Braided hair intertwined between aspen logs that form a primitive hut in the center of the gallery, lit from within, houses bundled lumps of more hair. An eerie soundtrack of breathing permeates the dark atmosphere. The ambience is meticulously crafted, but the literalness of such a proposal deprives the viewer of the sense of imagination and wonderment one can experience in the scenes of Cutler’s strange and richly detailed paintings.

Ann Hamilton, The common SENSE, 2014-2015, installation view, SITE Santa Fe, 2015. Courtesy of the artist. Photo: Eric Swanson.

At turns impressive, delightful, and poignant, Ann Hamilton’s installation is one of the most richly rewarding of the show. Created in cooperation with the University of Washington’s Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture’s Ornithology collection, the common SENSE · the animals (2014-2015) is comprised of digital scans of bird and animal specimens taken from the collection, printed on stacks of newsprint, and presented salon style across the whole room. Invited to tear off sheets of the newsprint and take some of the pictures home, viewers are confronted with the consequences of their impulse to consume–as each sheet is torn away, the installation is lessened, pointing to the ultimate finitude of natural resources. In the wake of the tragedy of Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe, Hamilton’s installation becomes all the more moving.

Marie Watt, installation view, 2015. Courtesy of the artist and SITE Santa Fe. Photo: Eric Swanson.

The emphasis on collaboration at SITE Santa Fe is not a passing fancy, or just relevant to this particular exhibition, but rather is something that runs deep within the institution’s programming and curatorial mission. This is evidenced in a concurrent exhibition at the museum, Unsuspected Possibilities, supported by a Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Artistic Innovation and Collaboration Grant, featuring works by Marie Watt, Leonardo Drew, and Sarah Oppenheimer. Marie Watt’s installation in particular perfectly and beautifully illustrates SITE Santa Fe’s continued commitment to collaborative processes and community engagement. The artist, who is of Iroquois descent, involved local Santa Fe students and community members to help embroider designs on fragments of Pendleton blankets, which were then assembled into magnificent constructions, and hung like an advancing regiment through the gallery space. It’s a breathtaking installation, made all the more impressive knowing the many hands that touched it.

Celebrating My Dad’s First Birthday After He Passed Away

July is my father’s birth month.

We’d always celebrate with a family gathering; if the weather was nice, badminton, lawn darts and a backyard barbecue were the activities du jour. If the clouds took over, plenty of conversation ensued indoors, streamers and celebratory décor looking down on our giggles and well wishes. The events always concluded with my dad eating his favorite chocolate crunch-filled ice cream cake.

It was a day filled with reminiscing, laughing and pondering the future. It was a time when we truly recognized that every day is nothing short of splendid, and that in the end, we’re blessed to appreciate all life has to offer.

However, my father passed away earlier this year, five months shy of what would have been a celebration of his 64 years on Earth.

2015-07-09-1436456556-2309831-HuffPostDadBday.jpg

Learning to Like the “Would Have Been” Phrase

“Would have been” always struck me as a silly phrase in reference to those who passed away. People who said it were allowing themselves to wallow — unnecessarily so — in sadness. Noting the would-have-been age of the departed mentally prolongs a life that no longer exists, a kind of latching on to that makes the loss all the more painful. Cherishing memories and thinking of the deceased are one thing, but a continual blow-by-blow account of every birthday, anniversary and career would-have-been was hard for me to understand. I’d often cringe inside upon hearing others say their grandmother, who passed 27 years ago, “would have been 98 today.” Same for headlines about celebrities who “would have turned 100 this week.”

Yet as is common in situations where we hold tight to an opinion until it directly affects us — at which point we’re often open to new views and develop drastic shifts in perspective — I quickly took a liking to the phrase after my father’s death.

What’s wrong, after all, in mentally bringing him back, be it looking through pictures, playing a recording of his voice or yes…recalling that July is his birth month and he would have been 64 years old. If the closest I get to having him back are moments in which I dream of him and in the beautiful memory of a Would Have Been, then in the end, I’m blessed. The day is nothing short of bittersweet splendor.

So, armed with a new appreciation for this world of Would Have Been’s, I take great pride in letting everyone know that this month is my father’s birth month. I reflect on what would have been, wondering what would have been said, what gifts I would have gotten him and who would have scrambled for that last piece of crunch-filled dessert.

It’s our first July without him, the lawn void of darts, the grill covered.

In Death, A Celebration of Firsts

However, this first is also cause for celebration.

My father is no doubt on a journey we have yet to fully understand and I can only imagine that its awe far exceeds any game of lawn darts. In some ways, I view his departure as a birth, imagining him in a perpetual state of streamers and crunchies, if you will.

As such, I’m going to make it a point this month to not only remember the 63 year journey he had on this planet, but I’m also planning to celebrate what is now his first journey beyond the ones he had here.

As with birthdays, so it is with a loved one’s death: it’s a time of reminiscing, laughing and pondering the future. It’s a time when we truly recognize that every day is nothing short of splendid, and in the end, we’re blessed to appreciate all life has to offer.

Happy first birthday, Dad.

Celebrating Mother’s Day As a Motherless Daughter

Mother’s Day. A time of celebrating the amazing woman who gave you life, nurtured and inspired you. Your biggest supporter and fiercest defender.

Like myself and many of my clients, I have spent much of my life grieving for that mother. Not because she died, but because she never existed.

How do you celebrate your mother when she is no longer in your life, either by death or choice?

As a coach and former therapist, I have worked with countless women whose relationships with their mothers have been anything but the ideal depicted on greeting cards.

In these cases, Mother’s Day can be a day of disappointment, loss, and reminders of what you don’t have.

Family dysfunction can take on many forms. In my work, some common themes are a mother who didn’t pay attention to signs of abuse; dismissed her child’s (subtle or direct) cry for help; created an environment of neglect; and sometimes struggled with her own mental health issues.

There are times it is necessary to step back or end a relationship with your mother for the benefit of your own emotional health, well-being, and happiness. While it is generally a very difficult decision, fraught with fear and guilt, sometimes it is necessary.

Finding a way to set boundaries and grieving the loss of a relationship you never really had is an important part of healing from childhood abuse and dysfunction.

In my case, I grieve the mother I never had, due to chronic depression leading to neglect and the one who died when I was 23. I will never have the opportunity to have that relationship.

While you may never have that relationship with your mother, it is possible to experience nurturing relationships with people who inspire you and become your biggest supporter and fiercest defender. You just have to allow yourself the time to grieve and be open to allowing those people in your life.

Is Mother’s Day a struggle for you? Do you have difficulty finding a card that accurately represents your relationship? If so, make time this Sunday for you. Take some time to provide for yourself the nurturing, loving experience you deserve.
