John Hardy Opens Third U.S. Store in Westfield Century City Mall

Balinese jewelry brand John Hardy is set to open its third U.S. store in the newly renovated Westfield Century City mall this month. The 700-square-foot boutique aims to be an immersive retail experience, weaving together scent, sound, light and art in a reimagining of the John Hardy jewelry workshop in Ubud, Bali.
Designed around a hammered silver wall featuring an organic bronze sculpture and three vitrines, the rest of the store beckons clients to navigate the boutique like the island of Bali itself, walking around its natural edges and exploring tactile vignettes. True to founder John Hardy’s creative vision as an artist and environmental sculptor, the boutique walls showcase collections in a gallerylike presentation, encouraging guests to interact with the product.

“Over the past year, John Hardy has expanded its U.S. presence with its first boutique locations in Houston and New York.

M. Dumas Celebrates a Century in Charleston

There’s a party going on in Charleston, S.C.
This year, M. Dumas & Sons is celebrating its 100th anniversary — a milestone for any retailer, let alone a third-generation family-owned one — and on Thursday, the men’s specialty store will close down Society Street for a block party and fashion presentation that will showcase a century of M. Dumas style.
When the store opened in 1917, it was a uniform purveyor for service jobs and is credited with introducing Levi’s jeans to the Charleston market.
During the Korean and Vietnam wars, it was the sole provider of uniforms for naval officers stationed in Charleston and also offered a large selection of hunting and outdoor apparel, as well as shotguns and fishing poles.
By the Sixties, the business transitioned into more traditional men’s wear and over the years it has introduced brands such as Tommy Bahama, Sperry, Woolrich, CC Filson, Barbour, Duck Head and Southern Tide to the Charleston market.
Owned today by David Dumas, the grandson of founder Mendel Dumas, the store carries tailored clothing and sportswear from brands such as Hickey Freeman, Samuelsohn, Jack Victor, Eton, Rodd & Gunn, Faherty, Vince, Paul & Shark, Bonobos, Ledbury, Filson and Johnnie-O.

What Was it Like in Thirteenth Century Persia?

What was it like to live in the 13th century in Persia? How did it differ from the Persia of Omar Khayyam by that point? originally appeared on Quorathe knowledge sharing network where compelling questions are answered by people with unique insights.

Answer by Brad Gooch, Poet, Novelist, and Biographer, and author of Rumi’s Secret, on Quora.

What was it like to live in the 13th century in Persia? How did it differ from the Persia of Omar Khayyam by that point? Interesting that you should bring up Omar Khayyam, since the translations of his poetry into English in the nineteenth century caused a kind of Khayyam craze on the scale of the interest in Rumi’s poetry around the time of the appearance of the translations of Coleman Barks in the mid-1990’s. Thirteenth-century Persian culture was highly poetic, and Khayyam lived only a generation before Rumi. Yet the difference in their poetry and stance is telling about a division in schools of Persian poetry at the time. As a boy, when his family was traveling from his homeland in Central Asia westward to their eventual home in Konya, Turkey, they probably stopped at Nishapur, in the eastern part of present-day Iran. A story was told that Rumi as a boy met there the poet Attar, who wrote the beautiful narrative poem “The Conference of the Birds” and that Attar predicted his future greatness as a poet and mystic. “Your son will soon be kindling fire in all the world’s lovers of God,” he supposedly told Rumi’s father, Baha Valad. But Attar was of the spiritual school of poets, who stayed away from writing court poetry and dedicated their work and lives to spiritual wisdom. Omar Khayyam, also from Nishapur, where he is buried, was a poet of doubt and pessimism, and so he was dismissed by the more mystical Attar, and eventually by the adult Rumi, or at least by his companion and teacher Shams of Tabriz, who disliked Khayyam for speaking “mixed-up, immoderate, and dark words.”

Khayyam was buried beside a garden wall a few miles outside Nishapur, where pear and peach trees scattered petals on his tomb. Celebrated as a mathematician and astronomer while alive, Khayyam also wrote seductive, four-line quatrains, compatible with short, pithy observations about life: “Whether at Nishapur or Babylon… The leaves of life keep falling one by one.” Yet the bracing wind of doubt and pessimism–including questioning whether an afterlife actually existed–that sweeps through these “robais” disturbed the more visionary and believing Attar. In his “Book of the Divine,” Attar imagined a clairvoyant, standing over Khayyam’s grave, seeing the great intellectual “bathing in his sweat for shame and confusion,” having to admit his error. While stories were popular of Rumi and his father going to visit Attar, as an homage, no story was eve told of Rumi and Baha Valad visiting the grave of Omar Khayyam.

Annette Bening: Honored at New York Stage & Film Gala/ Mother Writ-Large in Mike Mills’ Twentieth Century Women

“If I were a woman,” Rob Reiner said in a video of congratulatory messages for Annette Bening at the Plaza Hotel where this sublime actress was feted at the New York Stage & Film Gala, “I’d be jealous.” Even those of us attending, with so many who worked with her or want to work with her, including Billy Crudup, John Patrick Shanley, Peter Gallagher, Julianne Marguiles, Jennifer Westfeldt, Greta Gerwig, a who’s who of stage, television, and screen including her co-honoree David Rockwell, admired Bening’s stellar career on stage and in movies– some favorites include American Beauty, The Grifters, and The Kids are All Right. Next up she is Irina in Chekhov’s The Seagull. With her husband Warren Beatty who was also present, she is Hollywood royalty.

But to hear her speak, she’s all about the work, and incredibly grounded. The next day at Bistro Milano, Bening joined Greta Gerwig and Mike Mills, her director in the new movie Twentieth Century Women, for a panel discussion. As was his wont in Beginners, a movie hewing close to the life of Mills’ father, this movie features a whimsical mother figure casually limning the life of his, Dorothea Fields, in California in the ’70’s, played so well by Annette Bening, she is sure to be nominated for this year’s Best Actress Oscar. Mills said he learned from the poet Allen Ginsberg about creating drama inspired by his life. Twentieth Century Women is not too far from everyone’s sense of the 1970’s, the artifacts especially. Annette Bening recounted her saying to Mike Mills, as they were making the film, you want to see that macramé bag. I have that macramé bag, and sure enough, she unearthed it.

Tranceformers: Shamans of the 21st Century – Second Edition Revised and Updated for 2012

Tranceformers: Shamans of the 21st Century – Second Edition Revised and Updated for 2012


Tranceformers: Shamans of the 21st Century is the true story of the author’s contact with a “dead” physicist colleague and the telepathic message that forced him to seek scientific answers to the spiritual questions of ancient cultures but in particular the Egyptian and Mayan with respect to: Who are we? Why are we here? Where are we going in 2012? Specifically, Dr. Harper integrates science with religion to reveal a cosmically-conscious cosmos awaiting our awakening to the cataclysmic earth and climate changes-to-come: ice ages, earthquakes, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tsunamis, volcanism, solar flares, and viral pandemics. It is also a road map of the Battle of Armageddon to be fought on all fronts worldwide as consciousness itself is under attack by antiquated belief systems. Far from the myopic bliss-bunny playground picture of reality painted by New Agers. Tranceformers is based upon a rock-hard foundation of the Tao, a knowing that was earned through the utilization of clinical hypnosis, massage therapy, and traditional Chinese medicine protocols revealed in this work. Dr. Harper states we can rise to these pending crises and overcome them by learning to use trance techniques employed by mystics, prophets, and shamans to unlock the mysteries of existence for ourselves. In fact, this is the global message behind the Second Coming of the Sun of God in 2012: The Solar Age of Our Great Self-Empowerment. Tranceformers, Shamans of the 21st Century has gone #1 three times in the body/mind/spirit category on amazon.com since being published in January 2006. The Second Edition has been Updated and Revised to prepare humanity to survive the apocalypse in era-2012. Dr. Harper is a regular guest on syndicated radio talk shows in Canada, UK and USA including Coast-to-Coast AM with George Noory. “The most epic book of our time.” O.H.

A Century in the Pacific, Vol. 1

A Century in the Pacific, Vol. 1


Excerpt from A Century in the Pacific, Vol. 1: Five Parts, Scientific, Sociological, Historical, Missionary, General The purpose of this book is to review the developments in the South Pacific during the past hundred years. The progress made in these regions may appear to some readers insignificant when the possibilities of this immense area are contemplated; but a keen realization of the humble beginnings of the early settler and the vastness of the area on which he settled will enable the reader to see the work in its true perspective, and lead him to a just appreciation of the marvellous work accomplished during the century. To all who have eyes to see, it is clear that in the Pacific lie the problems of the future. What does the average person know of these problems, and how does he propose to deal with them? It is hoped that this book may assist the reader to appreciate the significance of this Greater Britain in the Southern World. The editor, who is responsible for the plan of the book, has striven throughout to prevent needless repetition and to preserve proportion. Otherwise each writer has been free to treat his allotted subject in his own way. No effort has been spared to secure accuracy; but as it has not been possible for the writers to see their proofs, some errors may have crept in. My thanks are due to the contributors who so readily came to my assistance in the compilation of this work; also to the Rev. E.H. Sugden, Master of Queen’s College, Melbourne; the Rev. C.J. Prescott, Master of Newington College, Sydney; Mr. C. Brunsdon Fletcher, of the Sydney Morning Herald; and the Rev. J. Alfred Sharp, of London, for valuable suggestions. To the Rev. R.H.

At that time only God could see a person in the mother’s womb; now ultrasound baby pictures, like the one of Bettyann Kevles’s grandson on the dedication page of Naked to the Bone, can be mailed out six months before the child is born. Kevles provides an excellent history of the technology of medical imaging–x-rays, CT, NMR, PET, ultrasound, and mammography–but builds on it to examine the wider ramifications of bodily transparency.

The Great Explorers of the Nineteenth Century

The Great Explorers of the Nineteenth Century


This forms the third and concluding volume of Verne’s Celebrated Travels an Travellers. One is struck with the great mass of interesting matter, geographical, ethnological, and other, which is here compacted together; bespeaking as it does no small amount of research, an still more afiording fresh evidence of that instinctive perception of the popular which is, to a large extent, the secret of the author’s success in his numerous works. A preliminary chapter is devoted to a general survey of explorations by Seetzen, Burckhardt, Webb, an others in the East in the early part of the century-a survey very interesting so far as it goes, but superficial. The value of the work, however, grows as it advances, the story of African travel evidently drawing out the author’s enthusiasm more successfully; and the expeditions of Clapperton and the Landers are narrated with greater fulness, and with more sympathy. The whole of the second part of the book is devoted to Polar Explorers and Circumnavigators, and the stirring careers of Kotzebue and Krusenstern, of Bougainville and Freycinet, as well as of James Clark Ross and John Ross, Parry and Franklin, are concisely and graphically recorded.

Twentieth Century History For Dummies

Twentieth Century History For Dummies


The 20th Century brought revolutionary changes to our world and our lives: the human population of the world tripled, space travel became reality, two world wars and a host of other conflicts were fought, and huge advances in science, technology and communication resulted in the globalised world we know today. Enormous steps were made in wiping out widespread discrimination, from the women’s suffrage movement leading to women’s right to vote in western countries, to the civil rights movement in the US challenging racial segregation. The political landscape has provided lots of excitement, with charismatic and scandalous presidents in the White House, the first female prime minister in the UK, dictators working to various manifestoes across the world, the Middle East conflict and the changing balance of political and economic “superpowers”. Technological advances have resulted in nigh on universal adoption and dependence on automobiles, computers, mobiles and other wireless technology. The exponential rate at which technology is evolving is one of the variables that make the twentieth century so fascinating. All this and much, much more happened in a mere one hundred years – where did we find the time to do so much? Twentieth Century History For Dummies tells all.

World Century Compendium to TCM, 1

World Century Compendium to TCM, 1


Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), with a history of thousands of years, is the crystallization of the ancient Chinese's experiences in their struggle against diseases. It is also an integral part of the Chinese's splendid culture. Under the influence and direction of classic Chinese philosophies, it has undergone long-term medical practice and infiltrated into, as well as absorbed from, other subjects in that point in time, thus gradually evolving into a unique medical theoretical system that contributed and is still contributing significantly to the healthcare of the Chinese and the prosperity of the Chinese nation.The basic theories of TCM are the theoretical foundations for guiding traditional Chinese preventive medicine and clinical medicine, and encompass aspects such as the philosophical foundation for TCM, understanding the effects of TCM on the physiology and pathology of the human body, and the principles in TCM for life cultivation, rehabilitation, diagnostics, and therapeutics. In this sense, the basic theories are regarded not only as an important part of TCM, but also as a compulsory course fundamental to the study and research of TCM.This book is compiled to allow the majority of readers to understand the theory of TCM and its methods of diagnosing and treating diseases in a relatively short period of time. It provides a brief introduction to the basic characteristics and theory of TCM, and a detailed schedule of learning commonly occurring diseases and patterns and their estimated 60 corresponding prescriptions. This is a great attempt in initiating more people to understand and apply the theory of TCM to diagnose and treat common diseases and provide corresponding formulas.

World Century Compendium to TCM: Volume 4

World Century Compendium to TCM: Volume 4


Chinese internal medicine is a clinical subject which explains, using traditional Chinese theories, the etiology, pathology and therapeutic rules of the diseases or syndromes belonging to internal medicine. It is also the foundation for learning and research in other clinical branches of Chinese medicine, thus playing a vital role in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).Chinese internal medicine has had a long history. Its origins can be traced back several thousand years. Through long-term diagnostic and therapeutic practices, a rich collection of experiences and theories in Chinese internal medicine has been accumulated and this has gradually evolved into a complete, distinctive and effective clinical branch. In recent decades, Chinese internal medicine has also undergone more significant developments, especially in the treatment of cardiac or cerebral vascular diseases, digestive tract diseases, renal diseases and autoimmune diseases.In order to popularize Chinese internal medicine and allow readers to grasp its basic theories as well as diagnostic and therapeutic methods, we wrote this book in a language easily comprehensible by the layman. For ease of learning by modern doctors, we proceeded from the current clinical practice and outlined the contents with Western disease names. There are more than 80 diseases discussed in this book. For each disease, the Chinese syndrome differentiation and treatment as well as modern diagnostic key points are provided, to make it more convenient for the readers to study and understand.The study of each disease should begin from its etiology, pathology and diagnostic key points, followed by the differentiated patterns and corresponding treatments. The respective points of caution for each disease should also be well-noted. Finally, the questions forming the “Daily Exercises” are useful for readers to check their comprehension and recall of the material. Given the chance, the theoretical knowledge should also be applied in clinical practice so that past knowledge is tested and new clinical knowledge and skills can be learned. Indices to the prescriptions are supplemented at the end so as to facilitate study and consultation.This book is suitable for those who are enthusiastic about TCM and with basic medical knowledge, as well as clinical TCM doctors, nursing personnel and TCM students.

Designs for 20th Century Interiors

Designs for 20th Century Interiors


From Art Deco and the Bauhaus to the explosion of colour in the 60s and the return to minimalism in the 90s, this volume explores the 20th-century approach to designing interiors. It features a selection of original sketches, drawings and CAD (Computer Aided Design) printouts from the National Collection of Designs at the V & A. Furniture, ceramics, sale catalogues and other items from the V & A collections provide clues as to the relationship between initial idea and finished product. The illustrations show the innovative and often cutting-edge designs produced by some of the leading designers of the day. Four key sections – living rooms, kitchens and dining rooms, bathrooms and bedrooms – not only demonstrate a range of ideas for the domestic interior, but also highlight the huge lifestyle changes that occurred across Europe and America during the 20th century. Looking at the tension between the ‘traditional’ and the ‘new’ looks, the book also examines the importance of image to 20th-century consumers of designed products.

Century of the Child: Growing by Design 1900-2000

Century of the Child: Growing by Design 1900-2000


In 1900, Swedish design reformer and social theorist Ellen Key published “The Century of the Child,” presaging the coming century as a period of intensified focus and progressive thinking around the rights, development and well-being of children. Taking inspiration from Key-and looking back through the twentieth century-this volume, published to accompany an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, examines individual and collective visions for the material world of children, from utopian dreams for the “citizens of the future” to the dark realities of political conflict and exploitation. Surveying more than 100 years of toys, clothing, playgrounds, schools, children’s hospitals, nurseries, furniture, posters, animation and books, this richly illustrated catalogue illuminates how progressive design has enhanced the physical, intellectual, and emotional development of children and, conversely, how models of children’s play have informed experimental aesthetics and imaginative design thinking-engendering, in the process, reappraisals of some of the iconic names in twentieth-century design and enriching the unfolding narrative of modern design with other, less familiar figures. Divided into seven sections-“New Century, New Child, New Art”; “Avant-Garde Playtime”; “Light, Air, Health”; “Children and the Body Politic”; “Regeneration”; “Power Play”; and “Designing Better Worlds”-“The Century of the Child” focuses on individuals and projects that represent innovative and comprehensive contributions to design for children.

Your Century or Mine

Your Century or Mine


Ian McCullough is a man out of time. Literally. One minute he’s in 1891 London working on a time machine with a mad old scientist and the next minute he’s in the twenty-first century in an ocean side mansion in Maine. The house, and the fortune that comes with it, are evidently his, all set up and waiting for him. Now what? When investment adviser Genie Lindsay travels to Maine to meet her reclusive new client, she&#8217,s supposed to be explaining his finances to him. But one look at the guy, all tall-dark-and-handsome, and she’d like to be explaining a few other things as well. Like the sexual revolution for starters. Can one misplaced Victorian gentleman and one modern woman intent on a Girls Gone Wild seduction work out the mystery of time travel? Actually, will they get out of bed long enough to try?

20th Century Photography


The history of photography began some 150 years ago, but only relatively recently has it been fully recognised as a medium in its own right. Cologne’s Museum Ludwig was the first museum of contemporary art to devote a substantial section to international photography. The L. Fritz Gruber collection, from which this book is drawn, is one of the most important in Germany and one of the most representative anywhere in the world, constituting the core of the museum’s holdings.This book provides a fascinating insight into the collection’s rich diversity; from conceptual art to abstraction to reportage, all of the major movements and genres are represented via a vast selection of the century’s most remarkable photographs. From Ansel Adams to Piet Zwart – the best and most important photographers of the century are listed in alphabetical order, with images and biographical information.It offers more bang for your buck! ‘…a fast-food, high-energy fix on the topic at hand’ – ‘The New York Times Book Review’.

The Century of U.S.Capitalism in Latin America

The Century of U.S.Capitalism in Latin America


This book addresses two issues basic to understanding modern Latin America: the role of American-owned businesses in the region and, of equal importance, the reaction of Latin Americans to foreign investment. Throughout the nineteenth century and up to the 1930s, American corporations stridently resisted local opposition as they secured what they wanted in Latin America, cheap labor, plentiful raw materials, and favorable business conditions. After World War II, Latin American nationalism and revolutions forced American-owned enterprises to redefine their business model throughout the region. U.S. businesses integrated themselves into local societies through direct investment in manufacturing and the creation of broad-based consumer societies eager to buy everything from Coca-Cola to Chevrolets. As a new century dawns, multinational corporations aided by NAFTA ensure computers and cellular phones are as sought after as soft drinks and cars were in earlier eras. The first book on U.S. business activity in Latin America intended specifically for student readers, this account offers a balanced and insightful understanding of the nature of capitalism abroad. In assessing how U.S.-Latin American relations have been shaped by foreign investment, O’Brien argues that over the course of the twentieth century U.S. businesses and their government have forged a close working alliance to promote American interests in Latin America.

20th Century Fashion

20th Century Fashion


Passion for fashion. Between the first decade of the 20th century, when women were still locked into figure-shaping corsets, to the last years of the millennium, when sexy sweats and low-rise jeans became must-have status items, fashion evolved from a luxury enjoyed by the highest echelon of society to a global business that whisks trends off the runway and into the stores before the last supermodel has left the catwalk. From full skirts to miniskirts and morning coats to leisure suits, men’s and women’s clothing design evolved so rapidly that it was all one could do to keep up and stay in style. Each decade is now associated with definable fashions, short-lived fads and signature silhouettes. And in recent decades, retro has become de rigueur, as designers continually recycle the past for modern-day inspiration. Featuring over 500 ads from the Jim Heimann Collection, these fashion advertisements from 1900 to 1999 give readers a stylish retrospective on the century that defined, redefined, and reinterpreted fashion as we now know it.Arranged by decade and bursting with illustrations, the book’s introduction, chapter text, and year-by-year timelines explore major trends in fashion – from a speciality business to the mass market. Highlighted throughout the book are the historical events, key magazines, the influence of movies and pop culture, and important trends, brands, and retailers. Whether you’re a clothes horse or a fashion amateur, this visual history will provide a comprehensive guide to the evolution of 20th-century style.
