U.N. Officials, Executives Discuss How to Get Board Members and Consumers Interested in Sustainability

United Nations officials and environmentally minded executives discussed some of the sustainability challenges in the CG&R industry Thursday afternoon at the United Nations.
In welcoming guests to the Baker McKenzie program, the U.N. Global Impact’s chief executive officer and executive director Lise Kingo spoke of the need for greater involvement. Founded nearly 20 years ago by former U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan, the U.N. Global Compact works in conjunction with the private sector to give globalization a human face, Kingo said.
“Personally, this vision has never been more relevant than it is today. We are living in a world where we need a clear lighthouse that we can all steer towards that has the purpose of creating a world that leaves no one behind,” she said. “We believe approaching the 17 goals starts with embedding the 10 principles [which are rooted in human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption] in the way that any business is run. It is the best guarantee for not being accused of doing a little greenwashing as opposed to taking one or two of the goals and putting them into a company’s annual report.”
The U.N. Global Compact has strengthened to more than 10,000 companies from 40, when it

NBA’s Plumlee Brothers Discuss ‘Movember’ and the Art of Facial Hair

Brothers Mason and Miles Plumlee have a lot in common. They are both centers in the NBA. Miles is with the Milwaukee Bucks and Mason plays for the Portland Trail Blazers. They both hover around seven feet. Both attended Duke University. Their names (as well as those of their other siblings) begin with the letter “M.” And both are participating in the Movember Foundation’s movement to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues this month.
The Movember movement encourages men to pledge to spend the month of November not shaving (growing a mustache to show support and raise funds for the cause), exercise for 30 minutes each day or support someone who is doing both.
But what they don’t have in common, however, is an equal ability to actually grow full-fledged facial hair.
As they wind down Movember, WWD checked in with them to see how laying off the razor worked out. As it turns out, this is one area where Miles definitely has the jump on Mason.

Trans Women Discuss Sisterhood And The Violence They Experience Every Day

Sisterhood is a revolutionary act for all women.

A new documentary series called “This Is Me,” created by WifeyTV with the help of executive producer Jill Soloway, explores the issues trans and gender non-conforming people face everyday. In the most recent episode called “And My Sisters,” artist/actor Van Barnes, performance artist Miss Barbie-Q and artist/filmmaker Zackary Drucker sit down to discuss their friendships and the daily threat of violence they experience as trans women.

“Trans women are born witty, thank God. It’s part of our survival,” Barnes says at the beginning of the video. In the video, the three women sit around a table creating “prayer pumps” to memorialize a sister of theirs who was recently murdered for being trans.

“It’s a revolutionary act to be an out, visible trans person,” Drucker says, to which Barnes added: “It’s a revolutionary act just to walk down the street [as a trans person].”

With one gender non-conforming person being murdered every 48 hours around the world, the violence these women face is very much real — and it informs their behavior.

“I feel like I have to walk around with my fists up again,” Miss Barbie-Q says. She goes on to recount a time two months prior when she was assaulted by a man on the subway, simply for the way she expresses her identity.

“I have to gauge people because if they’re staring at me for too long, I think ‘Do I have to watch my back when I walk away from this person?’ Because violence can go from zero to 90 in a heartbeat,” Barnes says.

She also tells the other women about a time she was assaulted by five men on the street: “One of [the men] put his arm out and clotheslined me, right at the neck… He grabbed me, picked me up, body slammed me. Every single one of those guys took a turn body slamming me,” Barnes said. “Every time I was getting lifted into the air I thought, ‘I hope they don’t paralyze me.’ And nobody came to my rescue.”

“How many trans people are going to have to die on the street before change happens?” Miss Barbie-Q asks the other women in the video. In January and February of 2015 alone, seven trans women were murdered in the U.S.

A sentiment towards the end of the video sums up how important these women’s friendships really are: “These relationships give me a sense of stability, they give me a sense that things are possible, they give a sense of wholeness.”

Head over to WifeyTV to watch more of the “This Is Me” series.

To Discuss: Kimye for Balmain, Kim’s Crazy-Messy Closet, North’s $62,000 Tiara

So much news in the Kardashian sphere to discuss and digest! First, this morning Kim Kardashian broke the news that she and hubby Kanye West are starring together in a Balmain ad that shows them as quite the glam couple, shiny-haired and midkiss. I’m not crazy shocked since the brand’s long had a cozy relationship with the family, though I am interested that they’ve embraced the couple’s celebrity in such an official way.

Showing a less glam side of Kim is this Insta snap of her picking out an outfit and proving that even celebs have messy moments.

Based on the layout of the area pictured, the cold flooring, and the skinny bookshelf, I’m venturing that this is actually a hallway area outside of Kim’s bedroom (and that, indeed, her actual closet is stunning and pretty well organized). I understand overflow of clothing and accessories, but mine typically just flows onto the floor of my tiny closet or haphazardly perches on top of hangers—in other words, no pretty hallway to hold an extra rack. Regardless, it’s still nice to know that picking an outfit can sometimes be about sorting through a mess.

Now, on to the tiara news. Radar Online claims that Kanye spent $ 62,000 on a diamond-encrusted crown for the little one so that her dress-up time would be ultra luxurious. I’ve never felt more jealous of a toddler and have to tell you guys, I never really got jewelry as a kid (and especially no diamonds!). My mom was always too afraid I’d lose stuff, which, honestly, was probably the right assumption.

We’ve got three pieces of Kardashian news, but which is most interesting/surprising to you?

Now That We’ve Seen ‘Gone Girl,’ Does It Live Up To Expectations? Let’s Discuss

On Friday, the New York Film Festival screened the world premiere of “Gone Girl,” David Fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s best-seller. Starring Ben Affleck as Nick Dunne and Rosamund Pike as Amy, his wife who goes missing, all eyes are on how the film lives up to the celebrated novel. We’ve already confirmed that the ending isn’t as altered as previously imagined, but there is so much more to unpack within the 149-minute fever dream. HuffPost Entertainment editors Matthew Jacobs and Erin Whitney attended the screening and were left with more than enough to consider about “cool girls,” manipulative pregnancies and anniversary gifts gone awry. (Warning: Spoilers ahead for anyone who hasn’t read the book.)

gone girl

Jacobs: “Gone Girl” is arguably fall’s most anticipated movie, and I can now say that it lived up to all of my expectations. It’s been a year and a half since I read the novel, so I was more concerned with the film capturing the right tone than adhering to certain plot beats. With that in mind, Fincher has crafted an impeccable treatment of Flynn’s story. It pulsates (literally, at times, thanks to Trent Reznor’s threatening score) with the mystique of a macabre character study and the starkness of a rote crime procedural — even though it doesn’t feel rote at all.

With adaptations of novels as layered as this one, structure is often the first thing that suffers. Instead of establishing a film that can stand alone, they feel like the result of a checklist that ensured the right milestones from the book are satisfied. That’s what I worried would happen to “Gone Girl,” with its dual-narrator structure and heavy relationship with characters’ pasts. But Flynn does smart things with the script — the dialogue rarely feels expositional, even though these characters must do a lot of explaining throughout. And Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike carry the film; Affleck with a detached rage and Pike with a calculated chill. I am thoroughly impressed, even if the final 10 minutes could be a bit more concentrated. You read the novel more recently, though, Erin. Did the movie hold up for you?

Whitney: I hate to admit it, but I can’t deny the overwhelming disappointment I felt throughout the film. Full disclosure: I had literally just finished reading Flynn’s novel days ago and completely loved every terrifying, brilliant page of it. I think that when you truly love a book that much, you’re going to find yourself let down by any visual adaptation to some degree, and that’s what happened for me. First though, let me state that Fincher’s adaptation is a good movie with some of the best casting and performances I’ve seen all year. Whether you read the book or not, there is still something enjoyable and rewarding to take away from the film. But then again, I’m a perfectionist and a harsh critic, and when something I love in one form isn’t translated as well in another, I feel cheated.

For me, Fincher’s film played like a fun, entertaining recap of Flynn’s novel, harvesting the best gems of the story that make it exciting and thrilling. Yet the film doesn’t divulge the dark, twisted complexities beneath the surface, the nuances of Amy’s psychopathy, Nick’s sickened resentment and their ultimate addiction to destroying one another. Flynn’s ability to continually flip the reader’s sympathy and hatred for her characters doesn’t translate as strongly to the screen, which is unfortunate since that is truly the defining achievement of her original story. In the film we aren’t given strong reason to despise Amy wholly nor understand the depth of her passionate insanity — instead of mutilating herself on the bathroom floor, she calmly drains her blood via a needle and tube while reading a book, and her murderous act in the film’s latter stages is played as triumphant. Some of these moments are even comical in the film, which overall had more humor than I felt suited the story, trashy fun humor that read like an inside joke. I wanted “Gone Girl” to be darker and dirtier, in the vein of “Seven,” but it felt lighter and too fun. Did this element of humor stand out to you, Matt, as much as it did to me?

Jacobs: I wasn’t that disenchanted by the humor, but I do agree there’s an “inside joke” sentiment running throughout the movie. Flynn seems to be writing for the people who read her book, which, in all fairness, will probably comprise a good bulk of the moviegoers who catch “Gone Girl” in theaters. She trims the edges of her story to fit a 2.5-hour format. Without the finesses of the character internalizations one can only glean from the more limitless pages of a novel, the movie does come with a whiff of melodrama. But sandwiching those hysterics between humor, for me, was a necessary respite, mostly because it doesn’t distract from the more wrenching moments, like when Amy bludgeons herself with a hammer or when another character collapses upon her in a crimson deluge of blood. I think this movie captures a sense of cold calculation, which might mean, at times, truncating the characters’ more inner workings in favor of emphasizing how astute their instabilities are.

What doesn’t work for me, on a critical level — and I very much understand this m.o. among critics and fans — is when a movie like this is judged largely in comparison to the rest of the director’s cannon. Fincher is working from a source material that commands a different atmosphere (and certainly a different interest level) than “Seven” or “Fight Club” or “The Social Network.” Sure, “Gone Girl” may be a lot noisier than “Zodiac” and more restrained than “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” but I’m more interested in the way Fincher caters to the many people who want an accessible, big-budget thriller as well as those who can appreciate its stylistic nuances. I’m impressed, if not unsurprised, that Fincher has accomplished that.

Whitney: I have to agree with you that I’m definitely in the camp of not wanting to compare a director’s latest work to his oeuvre. I strive to avoid succumbing to that temptation, but with someone like Fincher I find that even harder to do, and lately I’ve been craving more of the grittiness of his earlier work.

And I can definitely understand the decision to sacrifice the subtleties and latent darkness of the characters as a means to tell a more cohesive story. Sacrifices must be made somewhere, and I think Flynn made apt choices with her screenplay. Yet still, I don’t think a story as rich and densely layered as “Gone Girl” is most suitable for a big-screen adaptation, mainly due to the time constraints. I can’t help but wonder what it would look like as a miniseries. The era of the cinematic anthology TV series is in full swing right now, with FX’s “Fargo” and HBO’s “True Detective” proving that more can be accomplished with a 10-hour movie format broken up into episodes than with a roughly three-hour feature. While I’m not a fan of remakes, I do sort of hope that one day Fincher or another filmmaker will take “Gone Girl” down the anthology route so all of its delicious, psychotic and haunting fragments can be hashed out. Till then we have the film, and it is good and it does the job fine. It’s like enjoying an incredible dish at a restaurant then going home and attempting to recreate it — the overall flavor is there, but something’s still missing. Or maybe I just need some distance from the book to better appreciate the film as a singular entity.

Jacobs: I love that thought, Erin. “Gone Girl” would have made a stellar miniseries. In that format, it really could have employed Amy’s and Nick’s bifurcated points of view in a more substantial way than the movie can. But since that’s not what we’re left with, I’d call “Gone Girl” a resounding success.

“Gone Girl” opens in theaters on Friday, Oct. 3.

Mark Nepo And Oprah Discuss How We Can Live A More Poetic Life (VIDEO)

While most people would describe Mark Nepo, spiritual author of Seven Thousand Ways to Listen, Reduced to Joy and The Book of Awakening as a poet, he says he hopes to be more. When Oprah sat down with Nepo on “Super Soul Sunday,” he explained how the labels we use for ourselves can hold us back from feeling truly alive.

“I remember you having said or written that for many years you wanted to be a great poet and now your heart’s desire is to be the poem,” Oprah says. “What does that mean?”

“I think it’s not just for a poet, but it works that way for me,” Nepo says. “I think it’s for all of us. I think, understandably, we start out learning who we are, we start to become familiar with our gifts, and then we want to be accomplished…. And then we want to make a contribution, and we have such a production imprint in our culture that we want to produce something.”

Nepo says his battle with cancer shifted his perspective.

“But, for me, as we’ve talked, as life had other ideas, I found that it wasn’t helpful to try to create great poems. I needed to find true poems to help me live,” he says. “And then as I was able to still be here, it was all about being the moment of life come alive. That’s the poem, to stay as close to our aliveness as possible.”

“And that is how each of us can live a more poetic life,” Oprah says.

“Absolutely,” Nepo agrees. He goes on to explain that in our culture, when someone has a talent for something, we’re told to label ourselves. “If I write, someone says you should be a writer. If someone loves the land, oh, you should be a gardener. Or if someone sings, you should be a singer. However, we’re being turned into a noun when the aliveness is in staying a verb.”

So if you love singing — just sing, Nepo says.

“Just sing,” Oprah repeats. “You don’t have to become a singer. Oh, that’s good.”

“You don’t have to become a gardener. Just keep your hands in the earth,” Nepo adds.

“Because there isn’t necessarily just one thing you have to do,” Oprah says.

“No,” Nepo says. “And then we follow the aliveness, and so our identity evolves over time.”

Part two of Oprah’s conversation with Nepo on “Super Soul Sunday” airs Sunday, Nov. 17 at 11 a.m. ET on OWN.
