Lola Burstein-Rykiel Drawing Inspiration From Modern Dance Pioneer Loie Fuller for Maison St. Germain

For its October installation in Paris, Maison St. Germain has turned to Lola Burstein-Rykiel.
As creative director for the upcoming project, she is culling ideas from her hometown to imagine a multiscale experience for the elderflower liqueur. Still in the early stages of developing the art installation, Burstein-Rykiel said “an abundance of flowers and sensuality creates this ephemeral joy” that she can connect with. Another starting point is Loie Fuller’s Serpentine dance, a lasting image of the Art Nouveau Movement first performed in Paris at the Folies Bergère in 1892.
As a former student at Martha Graham’s Dance School, Burstein-Rykiel reviewed old videos of Fuller dancing the Serpentine. “Loie was just so beautiful. She transformed herself from a flower to a butterfly to a woman just by her doing it herself with her costumes and the lighting. That’s what was so interesting. It was not just the choreography. The costume, the lighting and the movement is as important as the rest. It was like a surreal art performance before her time,” Burstein-Rykiel said. “She pushed the limits back in choosing to do everything by herself. When I was looking at her dance, I was like ‘Whoa, this looks a bit like an

Goldbergs and Modern Family Actor Jackson Odell, 20, Found Dead at California Home

Jackson Odell has died at the age of 20.

The musician and actor, best known for his role as Ari Caldwell on ABC’s The Goldbergs from 2013 to 2015, was found unresponsive at his Tarzana, California, residence on Friday, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office confirmed to PEOPLE. His cause of death is pending an autopsy.

“The Odell family has lost our beloved son and brother, Jackson Odell, on Friday,” his family in a statement posted to his Twitter page. “He will always be a shining light and a brilliant, loving and talented soul. He had so much more to share. Our family will always carry that truth forward. Our wish is that the rest of the world who knew and loved him does as well.”

The family continued, “We are now going to try to make sense of our immeasurable loss privately. We will not be making anymore statements.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The actor’s career also included small roles on Private PracticeModern Family, iCarly and Arrested Development. 

He was also a singer-songwriter who contributed several original songs to the soundtrack for the 2018 movie Forever My Girl.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Actress Ariel Winter mourned his loss on social media, writing about their time together on Modern Family.

“Devastated to hear about the passing of Jackson Odell,” she wrote. “I knew Jackson since we were 12 years old, and he even appeared in an episode of Modern Family. We didn’t talk much as we entered our high school years, but I’m glad I got to spend time with him before his end. Very hard for me to hear about anyone passing away, but someone so young really saddens me. Sending love to his family and friends.”

Bonobos and the Modern Male: A New Brand Story

For some time, the story around Bonobos has been its fits, diversity of styling and the $ 310 million deal to Walmart. 
But how to build a brand that lasts? The message might need to be more than product and the company’s doubling down on its marketing with a new campaign called Project172, which kicked off Monday with the launch of two TV spots. 
The campaign — with the TV commercials paired with a national e-mail, social media and radio campaign — enlisted 172 men (the total number of sizes and fit combinations in Bonobos pants), all wearing the same pair of stretch washed chinos in the same color, to share their thoughts on gender stereotypes and the changing definition of masculinity. The company is set to release on May 21 a mini-documentary with footage from conversations with those 172 individuals talking about their definition of masculinity. 
“We have been working in the last couple of years in terms of trying to position Bonobos from a brand perspective as a brand that stands for not just great fitting clothing but really helping men find their fit in the world, recognizing that the world is changing dramatically and particularly for men changing,” said Bonobos copresident

In the Spotlight: Thomas Finney’s Modern Take on Made-to-Measure

Designer: Thomas Finney
Backstory: The Michigan native initially thought his career path would lead to the film industry. But once he got immersed in the Savannah College of Art and Design, he switched gears to fashion design, with a focus on men’s wear. He scored an internship with Thom Browne and so impressed the designer that he was hired to be a full-time men’s designer for the label after graduation. He stayed at his “dream job” for four years, working on both the commercial and runway collections, before leaving for a short stint working with Aaron Levine at Club Monaco. “I went from high concept to high street,” he said. About 18 months ago, he took the plunge and launched his own eponymous label, zeroing in on tailored clothing and furnishings.
Aesthetic: Finney admits to a love for Americana and based his silhouette off of a Forties golfing jacket. His ability to combine old-school tailoring techniques with new technology results in a slim, modern cut that is comfortable and easy to wear. In addition to suits, Finney has also created an entire day-to-night wardrobe ranging from denim with a suede crotch — “Yes, I went there.”— to leather jackets and knitwear.

Herrera to Show Spring Collection at The Museum of Modern Art

NEXT STOP, MOMA: Carolina Herrera is tapping into the art world. She will host her spring 2018 runway show in the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden at The Museum of Modern Art in New York on Sept. 11 at 8 p.m. It’s the first time Herrera has had a nighttime show.
Herrera plans to show two seasons at MoMA, underscoring the brand’s relationship and commitment to the city where the company is based and continues to grow.
Herrera is the first fashion designer to have a full-blown runway show at MoMA. There have been some smaller presentations in years past, but MoMA has never had a formal fashion show, said a museum spokeswoman.
Over the past three-and-a-half decades Herrera has used the city as a complement, and often an inspiration for her collections. She was also the first designer to show at the Metropolitan Club and has since shown at The Plaza, The Pierre, Bryant Park, Lincoln Center, the Frick and most recently in the Meatpacking district for the fall collection. The spring 2018 collection will mark the designer’s 72nd season showing in New York.
The MoMA location will be revealed through a series of teaser videos released on the house’s Instagram handle. Using

Reed Krakoff’s Tiffany Beginning: ‘Quality Fused With a Modern Eye’

Reed Krakoff is getting into the Tiffany & Co. groove.
Krakoff — who began his new role as the jeweler’s chief artistic officer on February 1 — had taken a break Wednesday evening to attend a VIP preview of the 2017 Whitney Biennial, for which Tiffany serves as a major sponsor.
The designer said he has kept busy in the last six weeks — visiting Tiffany’s various manufacturing hubs, learning the brand’s technical aptitude and devising a creative blueprint for the firm.
“I’ve been to Padua to work on sterling, I’ve been to Murano, to Vermont actually, to work with a ceramic and glass company, hand-blown and hand-formed. We are working with Wedgwood on home products, and internally there is an incredible amount of technical ability — it’s just limitless, it’s really a dream,” Krakoff said of learning the ropes.
Shedding an early light on his vision for the label, he said: “It’s really breathtaking, the amount of capability, not just creatively but technically. I think it’s unheard of in this country, frankly, a brand that can bring both to the market in a meaningful way.
“I don’t think people realize it — we are making real things with a wholehearted, artisanal, hand-wrought quality. In a funny

Enter Cartoons By Hilary. On her Instagram page, 26-year-old cartoonist Hilary Fitzgerald Campbell shares doodles chronicling the highs and lows (but mostly lows) of looking for love in 2017.

Really, who hasn’t had an almost-relationship end like this?

Or rolled their eyes at the “options” out there?

So what I'm saying is things are going well #manicmonday

A post shared by Hilary Fitzgerald Campbell (@cartoonsbyhilary) on

In an interview with The Huffington Post, Fitzgerald Campbell said she draws inspiration from her own experiences with frustrating first dates and relationship false starts.

“Whenever something starts, I feel deep down it’s going to end, so it becomes a game of ‘how will I be disappointed this time?’” the Brooklyn-based illustrator said. “I’m starting to sound like a pessimist but I’m actually full of an absurd amount of hope, in life and in relationships.”

Emerging social media and so-called Web 2.0 technologies will continue to have a great impact on the practice and application of the emergency management function in every public safety sector. Disasters 2.0: The Application of Social Media Systems for Modern Emergency Management prepares emergency managers and first responders to successfully apply social media principles in the operations, logistics, planning, finance, and administrative aspects of any given disaster. Using real-life examples of domestic and international disasters, the book reveals how social media has quickly become a powerful tool for both providing emergency instruction to the public in real time and allowing responding agencies to communicate among themselves in crisis. A definitive and comprehensive source, the book explores topics such as: Social media basics Citizen journalism Strategic implementation Safety and responsibility Monitoring and analytics Operational implementation Geolocation systems Crowdsourcing Public notification Mobile and other emerging technologies Each chapter begins with a list of objectives and includes a collection of case examples of social media use in past events. Practitioner profiles show real people implementing the technology for real solutions. Demonstrating how to effectively apply social media technology to the next crisis, this is a must-read book for those charged with disaster management and response.

Reza Aslan On Why America Needs A Muslim ‘Modern Family’

As an American Muslim living in a climate of Islamophobia, Reza Aslan has had to develop a thick skin when speaking about his faith in public. In an appearance on Vox’s series “The Secret Life of Muslims,” Aslan shared a few conclusions about what he thinks can challenge negative perceptions of Islam. 

As a scholar of religion and a New York Times bestselling author, Aslan is frequently called upon by the media to comment on issues surrounding Muslim life in America. Often, Aslan finds himself in the position of having to defend Islam, a faith practiced by roughly 1.6 billion people in the world, against the actions of a few political extremists. He’s also had his credentials as a New Testament scholar questioned on Fox News ― just because he’s a practicing Muslim.

“The hardest part for me when I’m being interviewed is to tamp down my astonishment,” Aslan said in the recently published video. “The thing that’s mostly going through my mind is, ‘Calm down, calm down.’”

What Aslan has learned from his experiences is that bigotry doesn’t stem from ignorance ― it stems from fear. Aslan believes that even truthful information doesn’t stand a chance against fear.

“The only way you’re going to dissipate that fear is by getting people to know someone that they’re afraid of,” Aslan said. 

That’s why he believes it’s important for Americans to see examples of the average Muslim family in American pop culture, film, and television. In the same way television shows like “Will and Grace” and “Modern Family” helped audiences become familiar with same-sex families and relationships, Aslan thinks a series that showcases American Muslim life will help break through the negative perceptions and fear that some Americans have about Muslims.

As part of that mission, Aslan has teamed up with former Friends” executive producer Andrew Reich to create a comedy show about an Iranian-American family from San Jose, California. The untitled show was purchased by ABC last year, according to Deadline.

“Stories have the power to break through the walls that separate us into different ethnicities, different cultures, different nationalities, different races, different religions, because they hit us at the human level,” Aslan said.  

Watch the clip above to see more of Reza Aslan’s appearance on Vox.

Psalms in the Early Modern World

Psalms in the Early Modern World


Psalms in the Early Modern World is the first book to explore the use, interpretation, development, translation, and influence of the Psalms in the Atlantic world, 1400-1800. In the age of Reformation, when religious concerns drove political, social, cultural, economic, and scientific discourse, the Bible was the supreme document, and the Psalms were arguably its most important book. The Psalms played a central role in arbitrating the salient debates of the day, including but scarcely limited to the nature of power and the legitimacy of rule; the proper role and purpose of nations; the justification for holy war and the godliness of peace; and the relationship of individual and community to God. Contributors to the collection follow these debates around the Atlantic world, to pre- and post-Hispanic translators in Latin America, colonists in New England, mystics in Spain, the French court during the religious wars, and both Protestants and Catholics in England. Psalms in the Early Modern World showcases essays by scholars from literature, history, music, and religious studies, all of whom have expertise in the use and influence of Psalms in the early modern world. The collection reaches beyond national and confessional boundaries and to look at the ways in which Psalms touched nearly every person living in early modern Europe and any place in the world that Europeans took their cultural practices.

Medical Writing in Early Modern English

Medical Writing in Early Modern English


Medical writing tells us a great deal about how the language of science has developed in constructing and communicating knowledge in English. This volume provides a new perspective on the evolution of the special language of medicine, based on the electronic corpus of Early Modern English Medical Texts, containing over two million words of medical writing from 1500 to 1700. The book presents results from large-scale empirical research on the new materials and provides a more detailed and diversified picture of domain-specific developments than any previous book. Three introductory chapters provide the sociohistorical, disciplinary and textual frame for nine empirical studies, which address a range of key issues in a wide variety of medical genres from fresh angles. The book is useful for researchers and students within several fields, including the development of special languages, genre and register analysis, (historical) corpus linguistics, historical pragmatics, and medical and cultural history.

How the Scots Invented the Modern World

How the Scots Invented the Modern World


Who formed the first modern nation?Who created the first literate society?Who invented our modern ideas of democracy and free market capitalism?The Scots. Mention of Scotland and the Scots usually conjures up images of kilts, bagpipes, Scotch whisky, and golf. But as historian and author Arthur Herman demonstrates, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries Scotland earned the respect of the rest of the world for its crucial contributions to science, philosophy, literature, education, medicine, commerce, and politics-contributions that have formed and nurtured the modern West ever since. Arthur Herman has charted a fascinating journey across the centuries of Scottish history. He lucidly summarizes the ideas, discoveries, and achievements that made this small country facing on the North Atlantic an inspiration and driving force in world history. Here is the untold story of how John Knox and the Church of Scotland laid the foundation for our modern idea of democracy; how the Scottish Enlightenment helped to inspire both the American Revolution and the U.S. Constitution; and how thousands of Scottish immigrants left their homes to create the American frontier, the Australian outback, and the British Empire in India and Hong Kong. How the Scots Invented the Modern World reveals how Scottish genius for creating the basic ideas and institutions of modern life stamped the lives of a series of remarkable historical figures, from James Watt and Adam Smith to Andrew Carnegie and Arthur Conan Doyle, and how Scottish heroes continue to inspire our contemporary culture, from William “Braveheart” Wallace to James Bond. Victorian historian John Anthony Froude once proclaimed, “No people so few in number have scored so deep a mark in the world’s history as the Scots have done.” And no one who has taken this incredible historical trek, from the Highland glens and the factories and slums of Glasgow to the California Gold Rush and the search for the source of the Nile, will ever view Scot

The People’s Songs: The Story of Modern Britain in 50 Records

The People’s Songs: The Story of Modern Britain in 50 Records


An original book to accompany Stuart Maconie’s landmark Radio 2 series: a history of post-war Britain through pop music. These are the songs that we have listened to, laughed to, loved to and laboured to, as well as downed tools and danced to. Covering the last seven decades, Stuart Maconie looks at the songs that have sound tracked our changing times, and just sometimes – changed the way we feel. Beginning with Vera Lynn’s “We’ll Meet Again,” a song that reassured a nation parted from their loved ones by the turmoil of war, and culminating with the manic energy of “Bonkers,” Dizzee Rascal’s anthem for the push and rush of the 21st century inner city, “The People’s Songs” takes a tour of our island’s pop music, and asks what it means to us. The story of modern Britain is told chronologically over 50 chapters, through the records that we listened to and loved during the dramatic and kaleidoscopic period from the Second World War to the present day. This is not a rock critique about the 50 greatest tracks ever recorded. Rather, it is a celebration of songs that tell us something about how we have felt about things in our lives down the eras – work, war, class, leisure, race, family, drugs, sex, patriotism and more. In times of prosperity or poverty this is the music that inspired haircuts and dance crazes, but also protest and social change. The companion to Stuart Maconie’s landmark Radio 2 series, “The People’s Songs” shows us the power of cheap pop music, one of Britain’s greatest exports.

What have been ignored for too long are those "alternative" precious moments that really should be written down, celebrated, and remembered — Baby’s First Projectile Vomit, Baby’s First Tantrum in a Crowded Grocery Store, Baby’s 10,000th Dirty Diaper. Otherwise you might forget them and think of becoming parents once again.

The Islamic State’s Murder of a Modern Day Monuments Man

2015-08-21-1440185698-1618310-1122_8.JPG

Khaled al-Asaad, 83-year-old retired Syrian archaeologist known admiringly as “Mr. Palmyra” for his extraordinary knowledge of that revered 2,000 year-old Roman era city, has been killed.

Jihadists of the Islamic State publicly beheaded al-Asaad, and then hung his body by his wrists from a traffic light positioning his head on the ground below. Attached to his waist was a sign listing his alleged crimes: attending “infidel conferences,” and acting as “the director of idolatry” for his lifelong passion in documenting and sharing with the public the artistic and cultural history of Palmyra, his birthplace. Syria’s Director of Antiquities provided a more rational explanation: despite repeated questioning, al-Asaad refused to divulge the location of statues and other works of art that had been removed from the city for safekeeping prior to the arrival of Islamic State militants.

The death of Khaled al-Asaad is not the first in the service to the arts during times of war. In March 1945, British Monuments Man Major Ronald Balfour, was killed by shrapnel relocating treasures from Christ the King Church in Cleve, Germany. The following month, machine-gun fire claimed the life of American Monuments Man Captain Walter Huchthausen while checking on a report of stolen art. Although scholar-soldiers, Balfour and Huchthausen wore military uniforms; al-Asaad was a civilian more than twice their age, armed with little more than his extensive knowledge of Palmyra’s once great civilization.

Khaled al-Asaad’s determination to protect Palmyra and its treasures parallels the service of the great French heroine, Rose Valland. From 1940-1944, this unassuming woman worked as a custodian of small Paris museum that the Nazis had commandeered for their looting operation, all the while spying on their activities. Twice accused and threatened with summary execution, Valland persisted, and fortuitously so. Her secret notes recording the arrival of stolen art and its subsequent shipment to Germany proved instrumental to the Monuments Men’s discovery of more than twenty thousand works of art. Valland would later join the Monuments Men and continue the search for missing works of art until her death in 1980.

The horrific death of Khaled al-Asaad, like those of Balfour and Huchthausen, underscores the high cost of protecting works of art and other cultural treasures during war. Balfour and Huchthausen knew this before volunteering; still, they wanted to serve. According to his son, Walid al-Asaad, al-Asaad knew it too, choosing to remain in his hometown despite ample opportunity to flee prior to ISIL’s encirclement of Palmyra.

Is art worth a life? It is a question that goes to the very soul of the work of the Monuments Men during World War II, and that of hundreds of volunteers, then and now, who have risked their lives to save our shared cultural heritage. Supreme Allied Commander General Dwight D. Eisenhower believed that the answer must be “no,” stating clearly that a human life counts “infinitely” more. Monuments Man Captain Deane Keller, a 42 year-old professor of art at Yale University and an artist himself, agreed. Keller, whose three-year long military service in Italy included a year and a half in or near combat, once wrote, “no work of art is worth the life of a single American boy.”

But Keller made a critical distinction between risking one’s life to save a work of art versus risking one’s life fighting for a cause. Like his fellow Monuments Men, Keller considered it a privilege to represent his country to preserve the freedom of creative expression by artists just as he did preserving the greatest examples of what artists before him had created. General Eisenhower spoke of this during a 1946 speech stating, “That, for democracy at least, there always stands beyond the materialism and destructiveness of war the ideals for which it is fought.”

In making his case for cultural preservation to President Roosevelt in 1943, Monuments Man Lt. Commander George Stout said it clearly and dispassionately:

To safeguard these things will show respect for the beliefs and customs of all men and will bear witness that these things belong not only to a particular people but also to the heritage of mankind. To safeguard these things is part of the responsibility that lies on the governments of the United Nations.

Roosevelt agreed. Balfour, Huchthausen and now Khalid al-Asaad, honored those lofty ideals; the United Nations has not.

In a speech his death precluded delivering, Monuments Man Ronald Balfour made an eloquent and enduring case for the preservation of cultural treasures. Its timeless warning would have resonated with Khalid al-Asaad, who knew that few places in our world offer a richer window to the past than Palmyra.

“No age lives entirely alone; every civilization is formed not merely by its own achievements but by what it has inherited from the past. If these things are destroyed, we have lost a part of our past, and we shall be the poorer for it.”

We ignore Balfour’s wisdom at our own peril.

New – Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) presents himself several times as a physician of culture. He considers it his task to make a diagnosis of the culture of his age, to point to the latent or patent diseases, but also to the possibilities to overcome them. His diagnosis, prognosis, and prescriptions implied an overcoming of traditional interpretation of what is going on in the main domains of culture: knowledge, morality, religion, and art.

Modern Software Tools for Scientific Computing

Modern Software Tools for Scientific Computing


Looking back at the years that have passed since the realization of the very first electronic, multi-purpose computers, one observes a tremendous growth in hardware and software performance. Today, researchers and engi- neers have access to computing power and software that can solve numerical problems which are not fully understood in terms of existing mathemati- cal theory. Thus, computational sciences must in many respects be viewed as experimental disciplines. As a consequence, there is a demand for high- quality, flexible software that allows, and even encourages, experimentation with alternative numerical strategies and mathematical models. Extensibil- ity is then a key issue; the software must provide an efficient environment for incorporation of new methods and models that will be required in fu- ture problem scenarios. The development of such kind of flexible software is a challenging and expensive task. One way to achieve these goals is to in- vest much work in the design and implementation of generic software tools which can be used in a wide range of application fields. In order to provide a forum where researchers could present and discuss their contributions to the described development, an International Work- shop on Modern Software Tools for Scientific Computing was arranged in Oslo, Norway, September 16-18, 1996. This workshop, informally referred to as Sci Tools ’96, was a collaboration between SINTEF Applied Mathe- matics and the Departments of Informatics and Mathematics at the Uni- versity of Oslo.

The Birth of the Modern Mum

The Birth of the Modern Mum


So much of modern motherhood is targeted at looking good even when you feel crap and making your baby look good even though he or she won’t settle or feed or stop crying, all in the shortest time frame possible. The Miranda Kerr and Heidi Klums of the world make it look easy; have a baby and get back on the runway 2 minutes later with a flat stomach, silky hair and glowing skin. What about the mothers who get acne from pregnancy, or whose hair turns grey, or can’t loose their baby belly in 10 seconds flat? This book is for them. The Birth of the Modern Mum looks at the serious issues such as Postnatal Depression (PND), relationship changes and physical changes that mothers face in their first year with a new baby while still providing light-hearted quick fixes that any mother can implement in short period of time. In association with The Gidget Foundation, and industry support from Dr Vijay Roach and Dr John Irvine, The Birth of the Modern Mum is sure to become a household title for all new mums. “No man could have written such a sensitive, practical and humorous handbook for the modern mum.” – Dr John Irvine. “Every day I am asked to recommend a chronicle of wisdom for pregnancy, birth and mothering. Written with warmth, compassion, genuine insight and humour, Heather Irvine has given us just what was needed.” – Dr Vijay Roach, Obstetrician and Gynaecologist

3 Questionable Pieces Of Dating Advice From Aziz Ansari’s ‘Modern Romance’

modern romance

Aziz Ansari, known to many as the dapper Tom Haverford on “Parks and Recreation,” and known to still more as a brilliant, subversive comedian, wants you to find love. Yes, you. (Don’t worry about him, he’s already found it and it sounds pretty great.)

His new book, Modern Romance, features a zany cover and the opening line “Oh shit!”, but let there be no confusion: This is not exactly a humor book. Aziz explains in the introduction that he’s never had interest in writing a humor book because he “thought stand-up was the best medium for [him].” Instead, he developed an obsession with the modern dating landscape and decided to write a book about that, collaborating with a sociologist Eric Klinenberg to conduct an enormous amount of research on dating and relationships.

Modern Romance compiles numerous anecdotes from his stand-up, their focus groups, and a subreddit they set up, as well as studies and conversations with prominent psychologists and relationship experts. Want to know all about dating these days, plus occasional, weird Photoshopped graphics? This book has that total package.

Aziz doesn’t position this as an advice book, either, but there’s no avoiding a certain degree of prescriptivism when it comes to analyzing what does and doesn’t work in the dating sphere. He points out that research suggests having lengthy online interactions prior to meeting up isn’t helpful, and can waste your time and emotional energy — that seems to be true, and the underlying message is, well, don’t do that.

With that in mind, my skeptical, dating-averse brain began automatically scanning the book for awful advice. I’m hardly qualified to do so, considering the following: I am in a relationship that predated the rise of Tinder; I used OkCupid for roughly a week at a time at six-month intervals during my single years; I once told three guys I was shutting down my OkCupid account in large part because I couldn’t think of a more tactful way to avoid seeing them again (they were so nice!). And then I actually shut down my OkCupid account so I wouldn’t be a liar. I have never been on more than three dates with anyone but my boyfriend, and I never figured out how to get in on the booty-call game. Out of the two of us, Aziz must be more qualified to give relationship advice.

And yet … some of the dating advice in Modern Romance really does seem a bit questionable. Here are the three most ehhhh bits of romantic guidance he offers to the single reader:

aziz ansari

“Participating in novel and exciting activities increases our attraction to people … If I look back on my dating life, I wonder how much better I (and the other person) would have fared if I had done something exciting rather than just get a stupid drink at a local bar.”

Now, sure, being nervous or excited about something else can make you feel more attracted to the person you’re with; Aziz references a famous study involving a sturdy bridge, a rickety bridge and an attractive woman handing out her phone number to men at the end. The men who just faced near-certain death on the perilous rocks below were significantly more likely to give her a ring. “The Bachelor” also has this figured out, which is why every date involves free-falling off a skyscraper or playing with venomous serpents. Afterward, every woman is convinced she adores the man who free-fell with her. That, or her legs are just shaky with pure terror, but who can tell the difference?

Question: So why do all those “Bachelor” couples break up? Seriously though. If your attraction was just misfiring anxiety neurons, what happens when those neurons chill out? Do you have to spend your entire relationship going hang-gliding? He relays a couple anecdotes in which an exciting, unconventional date made an impression or led to a second, but doesn’t say any of them led to true love. Meanwhile, Aziz looks back regretfully on all those “stupid drink[s] at a local bar,” but his first date with the woman he loves was just plain old dinner. (My first date with my boyfriend, full disclosure, was a stupid drink at a local bar.) I bet Aziz’s first date was as thrilling and heart-pounding as my first date was, because sharing a conversation with the right person can be more than enough. Personally I’m kinda glad I filtered out the other people earlier on instead of tricking myself with adrenaline rushes.

You know, unless it has lasting effects. In which case I’m down to handle snakes with my gentleman friend, For Love. It’s worth noting, however, that these studies typically involve single individuals whose attraction to strangers is being observed or rated. In a 2003 study that examined sexual attraction after a roller-coaster ride (wheee!), single riders showed a notable uptick in their ratings of strangers’ photos after the ride, but coupled riders showed no increase in attraction either to photos or to each other. Whomp whomp.

tinder dating

“So based on these data, the answers are clear: If you are a woman, take a high-angle selfie, with cleavage, while you’re underwater near some buried treasure.”

To be clear, I know Aziz’s tongue is jammed so far up his cheek it’s basically in his ear. That said, he goes into a fair amount of detail about what photos get you more messages on dating sites, suggesting that using the right photos to get more messages is part of being “good” at online dating. For a woman, this means coyly smiling, high-angle selfies, which makes sense, on a basic level. She looks friendly but also a bit mysterious, and the angle tends to be flattering — it emphasizes your eyes and makes your chin seem to taper delicately, creating a more traditionally feminine visual.

Question: But if you’re looking for the right person, not just a person, is attracting higher numbers across the board necessarily the way to go? Women already tend to be flooded with generally distasteful attention on dating sites. Try pre-filtering the shallow dolts by using normal photos, or only using watercolors you’ve painted of your cat, or by mentioning in your profile that you’re a vocal feminist (only if true, of course). In my OkCupid experience, the latter cut down on gross come-ons and allowed me to easily find and meet up with a few really awesome dudes. If I hadn’t gotten tired and quit dating after about six tries, I probably would have met someone perfect!

Men, this may not be as much of a problem for you, but still — do you want all that additional attention from women who wouldn’t notice you if your photo wasn’t quite right? Maybe you do, in which case, take Aziz’s advice. You should really read his book, but here’s a hint: Do not look at the camera.

text message

“All the psychological principles seem to point to waiting being a strategy that works for singles who are trying to build attraction … When you are texting someone less frequently, you are, in effect, creating a scarcity of you and making yourself more attractive.”

Aziz pulls out a lot of psychological research to explain why people ignoring us makes us want them, and he’s not wrong. We spend time thinking about whether they’re actually into us or not. We wish we had more from them, because we can’t easily get a response from them, let alone time with them. Much like a cute dress we see in the window of a boutique, we obsess over it more when we feel like we can’t afford it — once we buy it, it just sits in our closet like all our other crap. Don’t you want potential romantic partners to obsess over you?

Question: But … all things in moderation, right? You don’t want to deluge a suitor with texts, love letters and DMs before the romance has had a chance to naturally ripen, leaving the poor guy or gal wishing they had the opportunity to miss you occasionally. On the other hand, that stomach-churning obsession over whether he hasn’t texted back because he’s really busy at work or because he met a supermodel in the last 12 hours and is already shopping for her engagement ring isn’t exactly healthy, especially once the romance has become established. It’s a sign of insecurity about your relationship.

So, okay, space out your texts so your message convo doesn’t feel like a frenzied textual Ping-Pong match. But don’t start your relationship off with a pattern of psychological antagonism! A 2013 study about the impact of texting on relationships suggested that while texting to express affection increased relationship quality, texting hurtful things or attempting to resolve issues over text decreased it. Moreover, the authors wrote, “even communication instigated through technology connections may help emerging adults feel that their romantic partners are accessible, responsive, and engaged, or vice-versa.”

Sensing this textual availability from one’s partner, they note, makes one more secure in the relationship and therefore more comfortable exploring beyond it. If your girlfriend is always good about texting you back when she can, then the occasional failure to do so may feel less threatening — your security in the relationship will allow you to assume that the delay isn’t malicious and that you’ll be fine until the response comes. So, make the other person feel secure that you’ll respond! Let them make you feel secure! Be vulnerable! Generally just, I don’t know, act like a sane, nonwithholding person.

So I wasn’t sold by every page of the book. Still, even my deeply cynical, introvert’s brain found most of the insights and tips in Modern Romance to be pretty solid. If you, or your highly eligible son or daughter, are navigating the treacherous waters of dating today, you’ll want to know which parts of people’s online dating profiles are helpful and which are simply leading you astray, for example, and this book has got you covered.

Plus, Aziz has a serious girlfriend now, so he must have figured something out.

So as a bonus, I’ll leave you with my favorite piece of non-questionable dating advice from Modern Romance:

“With so many romantic options, instead of trying to explore them all, make sure you properly invest in people and give them a fair chance before moving on to the next one.”

One date almost never gives us a real shot at getting to know a new person well enough to make a decision about a relationship, but if you feel like there’s another option around every corner, you might not want to “waste” time on a second date with someone who didn’t blow you away. Or, if you’re a socially anxious introvert like me, you might not want to “waste” time on a second date with someone when you could, instead, be at home enjoying a glass of wine and a book with your cat. Aziz points out, “A person may seem just okay, but if you really invest time in the relationship, maybe they’ll be greater than you assume.” Familiarity does tend to lead to warm feelings, and a nonstop merry-go-round of new strangers means no familiarity. Ever!

Aziz also remembers a time when he felt scared about committing to a relationship when he wasn’t yet totally head over heels in love — but he made the decision to dive in and give the budding romance its best shot. Dive into your relationships, treat them like a project shared by you and your partner, and you’re bound to get better results than if you sit back and wait for them to impress you. “Modern romance” notwithstanding, it’s true today as it was for our grandparents. Good call, Aziz.
