49ers Cheerleader Takes A Knee During National Anthem

The gesture caught the attention of Damian Trujillo, an NBC Bay Area reporter, who snapped a photo of the gesture from the stands, and Lenny Herold, who was also in the stands. The photos show a brunette cheerleader taking a knee as her fellow Gold Rush cheerleaders stand in uniform poses. While it’s unclear what her motives were, the unidentified cheerleader’s act of taking a knee mirrors the ongoing NFL protests started by former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Hugo Boss, National Portrait Gallery Pays Tribute to Michael Jackson With a Dedicated Exhibition

MAN IN THE MIRROR: London’s National Portrait Gallery is taking a look at the life and work of Michael Jackson with an exhibit marking what would have been the singer’s 60th birthday on Aug. 29. The show, which is sponsored by Hugo Boss and Sony Music, opens on June 28 and will run until Oct. 21 before moving to Paris.
“Michael Jackson: On the Wall” explores the lingering influence of Jackson’s music — and his cultural persona — on contemporary artists and their works. It features photographs, installations, paintings and works by 40 artists including Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, David LaChapelle and Grayson Perry. There is a graffiti-style portrait of Jackson by Haring, as well as a large-scale work by artist Graham Dolphin. It’s made from vinyl covers from Jackson’s 1982 “Thriller” album.
“When the National Portrait Gallery told us that this artwork was included, it was a no-brainer for us to work with them because, on the cover [of the Thriller album], Michael is wearing the iconic Hugo Boss white suit,” said Hjödis Kettenbach, head of global communications at Hugo Boss. “It’s amazing to have this connection to him,” she said.
Boss will also release a revamped, slim-fit edition of the white suit, which cemented the King of

Legal Expert Thinks Cyntoia Brown Has Chance of Early Release: ‘The National Focus Helps’

The advocacy surrounding the case of Cyntoia Brown — the sex-trafficked teen serving a life sentence for murdering a man who solicited her — might help her obtain early release, a legal expert tells PEOPLE.

University of Memphis professor Steve Mulroy tells PEOPLE that Brown — the 29-year-old woman who, at the age of 16, murdered a 43-year-old man — could have her life sentence commuted by this time next year.

The decision to free her rests entirely with Republican Gov. Bill Haslam.

Haslam has been Tennessee’s governor since 2011, and his term in office ends after 2018.

“Usually, a governor will wait until the end of their second term to make any commutations. If he takes any action at all, it would not be until late next year,” Mulroy says, noting that Haslam has not granted a commutation while in office.

Last month, interest in Brown’s case spiked online when Kim Kardashian West and Rihanna both shared a post on social media featuring an image of Brown, and a statement about her case.

Rapper T.I. and actress Cara Delivigne have also used their platforms to shine new light on the case, and are calling on lawmakers to intervene. Kardashian West vowed in a social media post that she would have her attorneys look into Brown’s conviction to see if anything can be done to help her.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

Brown, who was raped several times as the child of an alcoholic mother, was a teen victim of sex trafficking in Tennessee in 2004 when she fatally shot Johnny Mitchell Allen. The middle-age man had solicited sex from her, according to court documents. Brown becomes eligible for parole after she turns 69.

Brown said she was forced to prostitute by an older boyfriend who essentially became the underage girl’s pimp, taking the money that she would make. She admitted she shot Allen in the back of the head, but claimed she shot him in self-defense because she allegedly saw him reach for his gun.

Brown told cops she did not know who Allen was before he solicited her for sex. After driving to his home, she alleged he showed her his guns before they got into his bed together. Subsequently, she said, he reached underneath his bed for what she thought was a gun, so she pulled a .40-caliber handgun out of her purse and shot him.

However, the jury rejected her claim of self-defense and found her guilty of first-degree premeditated murder, first-degree felony murder and especially aggravated robbery.

Brown’s attorneys have stated their intention to file a clemency petition before Christmas.

Mulroy tells PEOPLE commutations are something of a rarity in Tennessee, with less than 1 percent of all such requests granted.

“But in this case, I think the national focus helps,” Mulroy explains. “There is also a compelling argument for commutation here. The governor only has a year left in office, and has tended to be more moderate than your average Tennessee Republican, who are tough on law and order issues. I suppose there’s a chance it could happen.”

Typically in Tennessee, parole boards consider commutation requests. But Brown won’t be eligible for parole for decades, says Mulroy, who has been teaching law at the University of Memphis for 17 years.

• For more compelling True Crime coverage, follow our Crime magazine on Flipboard.

According to Mulroy, Haslam could move to commute Brown’s sentence entirely, reducing it to time served, or he could shave off enough time to make her “parole eligible, which would allow the parole board to consider her case.”

From what Mulroy’s read about Brown, she’s a good candidate for early release by the parole board.

“The legal standard for commutation of a sentence is someone who makes exceptional strides in self-improvement and rehabilitation, to the point where they are no longer considered to be a threat,” he explains. “She appears to be a model prisoner and got a bachelor’s degree. In addition to the tragic circumstances that got her to commit the crime in the first place, and the national spotlight she now has on her case, since she has been incarcerated, she really seems to have turned her life around.”

Richard Simmons Sues National Enquirer Over Reports He Transitioned

Richard Simmons is suing the National Enquirer, Radar Online and American Media, Inc. for their “cruel” coverage of false claims.

The lawsuit was filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court and accuses the defendants of libel and invasion of privacy-false light, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The publications allegedly used Mauro Oliveira ― a former assistant who has apparently stalked, harassed and blackmailed Simmons ― as their source for stories about the “real reason he disappeared” between June 2016 and March 2017.

The Enquirer and Radar Online claimed Simmons underwent gender confirmation surgery, which his rep called a “complete fabrication,” in a series of “cruel and malicious” articles. 

“The National Enquirer and Radar Online have cheaply and crassly commercialized and sensationalized an issue that ought to be treated with respect and sensitivity,” the suit says. “Principles of freedom of speech and press may protect their prerogative to mock and degrade the LGBTQ community. But freedom to speak is not freedom to defame. Mr. Simmons, like every person in this nation, has a legal right to insist that he not be portrayed as someone he is not. Even the most ardent supporter of sexual autonomy and LGBTQ rights is entitled to be portrayed in a manner that is truthful.”

People magazine spoke with AMI about the filing. 

“We stand by our reporting about him, all of which was based on solid sourcing and material evidence,” the company responded. “Should he choose to proceed with his lawsuit, we will defend it vigorously, and we look forward to the public vindication of our reports.”

Simmons stepped out of the spotlight back in 2014, which has led to much speculation about his absence, an LAPD drop-by and even a podcast titled “Missing Richard Simmons.” In April, the exercise guru released his first public statement in three years, insisting he was never “missing” and that he had been dealing with some health concerns. 

“This has reminded me that when you need help you can’t be afraid to reach out and ask for it,” he said. “We all think we should always be able to solve our problems all by ourselves and sometimes it’s just bigger than we are.”

Carrie Underwood Surprises Fans With National Anthem At Husband’s Game

On top of being a country superstar and an adoring mother, Carrie Underwood is one seriously supportive wife.

On Monday, Underwood ― who’s married to Nashville Predators captain Mike Fisher ― surprised hockey fans with a beautiful rendition of the national anthem before game three of the NHL playoffs when Fisher’s team played the Chicago Blackhawks at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

For the powerhouse performance (watch a video above), the seven-time Grammy winner sported her husband’s No. 12 jersey and painted her nails to match the team’s blue and gold colors. 

Underwood may have been a good luck charm for Fisher because the Predators won the game 3 to 2. 

The couple tied the knot in July 2010 and welcomed a baby boy named Isaiah in February 2015. 

“Time sure does fly when you’re having fun and you marry up,” Fisher wrote to his wife in an anniversary Instagram post in July 2016. “I’m very grateful to have an amazing wife and mother by my side!”

Underwood shared a similar sentiment, writing, “Six years ago today, I said ‘I do,’ to this handsome fella. I meant it then and I mean it now. God put us together and continues to bless our marriage. I couldn’t imagine this life without you.”

Below, more photos of the sweet couple. 

Very blessed to have these 2 strong, beautiful and Godly Moms in my life! #happymothersday

Manhunt for Alleged ‘Armed and Dangerous’ Facebook Killer Now a National Search

The search for the Cleveland man who allegedly posted a video of himself shooting an elderly man on Facebook has gone national.

At a Monday afternoon press conference, authorities acknowledged that Steve Stephens, 37, could be “anywhere” — and they urged the public to call in tips of the man’s whereabouts.

“This is now a national search,” said Chief Calvin Williams of the Cleveland police. “We don’t know where he is.” 

However, authorities believe that Stephens is still likely close to home. “There is no indication that he has left the Cleveland area,” Williams said during the Monday afternoon press conference, “but we can say without a doubt that he’s armed.”

Earlier Monday, authorities searched several places of interest, including Stephens’ home, where they removed several items and recovered weapons, Williams said.

Police believe that Stephens is still driving a white Ford Fusion with the temporary tag number E363630

Stephens — described as a 6-foot-1, 244-lb. man with a bald head and full beard — allegedly approached 74-year-old Robert Godwin Sr. and shot him point blank, killing him. While attacking him, police claim Stephens said in the video that his girlfriend drove him to commit the crime.

Initial reports stated that Godwin’s death was broadcast on Facebook Live, but police have since said that Stephens allegedly killed the man then uploaded the footage to the social media site, NBC News reports.

On Facebook, Stephens allegedly promised that there would be more victims. No other killings have been linked to him at this time and authorities believe his claim was not true, officials said at Monday’s press conference.

An aggravated murder warrant has been issued for Stephens’ arrest.

Early on in the investigation, Stephens spoke with authorities on his cell phone, but authorities said they have not heard from him since, as he has escaped capture, officials said at a Monday morning press conference.

A $ 50,000 reward has been offered for information leading to Stephens’ arrest. Anyone with information is urged to call 1-800-CALL-FBI with tips.

This is a developing story.

Remembering Whitney Houston with Her Super Bowl National Anthem Performance That United the Country

Ten days after declaring war is a lousy time for a party, let alone a Super Bowl.

On Jan. 17, 1991, an armed coalition led by the United States commenced Operation Desert Storm in the Persian Gulf, marking the first major military action of the post-terrorism age. Less than two weeks later, the New York Giants and the Buffalo Bills prepared for their own conflict as Super Bowl XXV kicked off in Tampa, Florida. Fears that Saddam Hussein would target this, the most American of sporting events, led some NFL officials to consider rescheduling. The big game would proceed as planned, but the festive mood of Jan. 27 was damped by the grim realities of a world at war.

Goodyear’s iconic blimp was grounded, and in its place flew Black Hawk air patrol. Instead of tailgate barbecues, the Tampa Stadium parking lot was crammed with concrete barriers and chain-link fences. Machine-gun wielding SWAT teams patrolled the roof of the arena while ushers carried metal detector wands down below. The mood wasn’t much brighter in the locker rooms. “Players were discussing privately if there would be a draft,” former Giants tight end Howard Cross later told the New York Post. “And whether our younger brothers might be drafted.”

It was into this tense, foreboding atmosphere that Whitney Houston strode onto the 50-yard line in a casual white tracksuit with red and blue stripes and matching white sneakers. With her dark ringlets pulled back in a wide headband, the 27-year-old looked more like an Olympian than the bonafide pop star who had scored back-to-back No. 1s the previous year with “I’m Your Baby Tonight” and “All the Man That I Need.”

She was there to open the game by singing the national anthem, Francis Scott Key’s “Star-Spangled Banner.” The tradition seemed charmingly quaint given the dire circumstances. “It was an intense time for a country,” Houston remembered in 2000. “A lot of our daughters and sons were overseas fighting. I could see, in the stadium, I could see the fear, the hope, the intensity, the prayers going up. And I just felt, ‘This is the moment.’”

The moment became the most famous of her career. Armed with no more than a song, Houston galvanized an uncertain nation.

Shortly after her performance was announced on Nov. 6, 1990—Election Day—Houston conferred with her longtime musical director Ricky Minor about the best way to wring every drop of passion and emotion from the ubiquitous tune. She spoke highly of a version sung by Marvin Gaye at the 1983 NBA All-Star Game, a soulful, stripped down rendition backed by an electric drum machine.

Minor tracked down a VHS tape of Gaye’s performance—not an easy task in the pre-YouTube-era—and studied it closely to find elements he could incorporate in his own arrangement. After careful analysis, he decided to take the unorthodox approach of changing the anthem’s time signature. “The original version is in 3/4 time, which is more like a waltz,” Minor explained to ABC News in 2012. “What we tried to do was to put it in 4/4 meter… We wanted to give her a chance to phrase it in such a way that she would be able to take her time and really express the meaning.” Slowing the tempo would give Houston a chance to eke out each subtle nuance of every lyric.

The demands of a live television broadcast coupled with the challenges of an outdoor performance proved too much of a liability for event organizers. To ensure a flawless rendition, producers had to get creative. “NFL policy is that when they have a performer singing the national anthem for live TV, they request the performer record what they call a protection copy, just in case the singer has laryngitis, the day of the Super Bowl,” Houston’s publicist, Regina Brown, explained to JET in 1991.

After recording the instrumental backing track with the Florida Orchestra in early January, Minor sent a copy to Houston to allow her to practice. As it happened, she never did. “I was busy doing a screen test for a film with Kevin Costner,” was her excuse when she met up with Minor in a Miami studio two weeks prior to the Super Bowl. But she was a quick study. After listening to the track only once, she walked into the vocal booth and belted the version that would mesmerize millions across the globe “Amazingly, it was done in one take,” NFL executive Jim Steeg confirmed to SportsBusinessDaily.com. “All was in place for what many of us thought would be one of the greatest versions of the national anthem ever performed.”

Not everyone was impressed. Some NFL officials were less than pleased by what they saw as a radical reimagining of a cherished piece of Americana “They thought the harmonies were too different, that it was sacrilegious,” Minor told USA Today. Just days before the broadcast, NFL brass placed a call to Houston’s father and manager, John, begging him to force the singer to record a new version. “The conversation was brief,” Steeg told ESPN.com. “There would be no rerecording.”

Houston was surprisingly grounded when Super Bowl Sunday finally arrived. “It wasn’t a lot of hype going in,” her brother, Gary, later told EW. “She was like a little girl going into a football game — not really understanding the magnitude of this game. But she was very excited, like, ‘Isn’t this great?’” Seventy-four thousand sports fans filled Tampa Stadium, adding to an estimated 115 million watching on television. For the first time the game was broadcast internationally, allowing troops stationed across the globe to tune in. The performance would be for them.

It’s been said that Houston lip-synced “The Star-Spangled Banner” on this day, but that’s not entirely fair. Even while the tape played she sang her heart out, pouring her inimitable voice into a dead microphone. The only ones could who could hear her magnificent artistry truly live that day were servicemen and women, representing all branches of the armed forces, bearing the colors of each of the 50 states, gathered before her on the field.

For the rest of us, the grand unveiling of Houston’s stunning interpretation was nothing short of a revelation. “Whitney was at the height of her vocal powers, and her performance of the song was electrifying,” Houston’s label head and industry icon Clive Davis wrote in his 2013 memoir, The Soundtrack of My Life. “It was soulful, passionate, supremely confident, and rousing.” As she hit the final climactic high note—an E-flat above middle C—on the word “free,” four F-16 fighter jets performed a ceremonial fly-by in the skies above. “It was a moment of unforgettable drama and pride,” writes Davis.

Only a genius could take a song that, by design, belongs to all citizens, and make it her own. Make no mistake; this was not a selfish act, but a selfless one. The African-American community has had a troubled relationship to “The Star-Spangled Banner” dating back to more than a century before Colin Kaepernick. “The machinery of state violence has too often been used against black people for a song about bombs and rockets to hold much appeal,” writes journalist and screenwriter Cinque Henderson in the New Yorker. The NAACP named James Weldon Johnson’s poem “Lift Every Voice and Sing” as the “Black National Anthem” in 1919, and even Martin Luther King preferred “My Country, Tis of Thee.”

On Jan. 27, 1991, Houston, a strong, confident, supremely talented black woman took back the national anthem and made it speak for all Americans.

The primary role of an artist is to reflect and articulate the mood and feeling of those unable or unwilling to express these complex emotions for themselves. When she sang “The Star-Spangled Banner,” Houston succeeded like few have, before or since. “It was a time when Americans needed to believe in our country.” Houston reflected in an interview with PEOPLE shortly after the event. “I remember standing there and looking at all those people, and it was like I could see in their faces the hopes and prayers and fears of the entire country.”

To many, the song outshone the outcome of the game (the Giants beat the Bills 20 to 19). The response was so overwhelming that Arista Records took the unprecedented step of releasing the version as a single just a few weeks later. It became the fastest-selling song in the label’s history up to that point, climbing to No. 20 on the Billboard Hot 100. Houston donated her portion of the proceeds to charities supporting soldiers and families involved in the Persian Gulf War.

When the worst fears of Super Bowl XXV became reality a decade later on September 11th, Houston’s anthem once again served as a rallying cry. It was re-released to raise funds for firefighters and victims of the terrorist attacks. This time it peaked at No. 6, making Houston the only artist to take “The Star-Spangled Banner” into the Billboard Top 10. It would be her final trip to the top of the charts.

The Search for a New National Identity

The Search for a New National Identity


This book explores the profound social, cultural, and political changes that affected the way in which Canadians and Australians defined themselves as a people from the late nineteenth century to the 1970s. Taking as its central theme the way each country responded to the introduction of new migrants, the book asks a key historical question: why and how did multiculturalism replace Britishness as the defining idea of community for English-speaking Canada and Australia, and what does this say about their respective experiences of nationalism in the twentieth century? The book begins from a simple premise – namely, that the path towards the adoption of multiculturalism as the orthodox way of defining national community in English-speaking Canada and Australia in the latter half of the twentieth century was both uncertain and unsteady. It followed a period in which both nations had looked first and foremost to Britain to define their national self-image. In both nations, however, following the breakdown of their more formal and institutional ties to the ‘mother-country’ in the post-war period there was a crisis of national meaning, and policy makers and politicians moved quickly to fill the void with a new idea of the nation, one that was the very antithesis to the White, monolithic idea of Britishness. This book will be useful for both history and politics courses in Australia and Canada, as well as internationally.

Cultural protectionism: how governments attempt to support their national music industry

Cultural protectionism: how governments attempt to support their national music industry


The music industry likes to stress that it currently encounters a deep crisis. While comparable industries could claim the same, the music industry has the advantage that music belongs to culture which is traditionally subsidised and protected by the national government. Therefore, the music industry tends to request either financial or legislativesupport from the government for solving its problems. National music policies have become common since the nineteen-seventies and each state takes a different approach and attaches different importance to supporting its national music industry (Wallis & Malm 1984: 217). This essay evaluates the issue whether governments are able to take effective measures to protect their music industries. Firstly, I will present the various methods that governments use to support the domestic music industry. Secondly, I will introduce case studies to show the measures being taken in different countries. After illustrating the extensive cultural policy in France, the employment of a radio quota is elucidated with the example of Canada. In addition, I will show how Germany makes stronger efforts towards a popular music policy and how countries try to promote their national music through export offices. Consequently, I will show how the European Union makes its first attempts to promote the music of its member states as a common culture in order to strengthen the EU music industry. Generally, this essay concentrates on analysing the popular music industry but it is interesting to note that government subsidies for classical music and the ‘high arts’ are on a much higher scale (Internet src: 8).

Several old military forts bear witness to the history of the islands, which reaches back to the late 1800s. The coastal park has more than forts, though; it encompasses 160 miles and features quite an assortment of attractions, including wildlife and a variety of recreational possibilities. This book manages to pack a wealth of information into 36 pages, providing a well-detailed overview of the islands, including information on the forts, wildlife and other attractions. It is a useful resource for learning about the Islands before your trip and during your visit, or to keep afterward to reminisce about your time there.Product DetailsDimensions: 6” W x 9” HSoftcover, 36 pagesIncludes color photographs and black-and-white maps

Erin Andrews’ DWTS Blog: ‘I Felt Like Christie Brinkley from National Lampoon’s Vacation’

While the majority of Hollywood’s elite dazzled and glowed (literally!) on the Met Gala red carpet, Erin Andrews and the rest of the Dancing With the Stars team had a show to put on! And according to the host, things got sleek, chic and a little sexy on Tuesday evening’s episode. Get all of the details on the host’s look, including her curve-skimming gown, dramatic hair and makeup and more!

Erin Andrews Dancing with the StarsAdam Taylor/ABC

For the taping, Andrews and her stylist Alyssa Greene selected a slinky, long-sleeve red Elie Saab gown, which she teamed with gold-accented accessories, including Manolo Blahnik heels and Royal and Sylvie Collection jewels.

“The past few episodes we went really girly and over the top, so for this look, we wanted to go back to sleek, sexy and fierce,” Greene told PeopleStyle. “It looks super simple from the front, but when she turns around, you see the asymmetric back detail with gold buttons. We added a bit of gold bling and a super simple Manolo sandal to complete the look.”

And while Andrews calls the sexy siren gown a “little dangerous,” she says the sleek design made her feel like a supermodel. “The slit was high and a little dangerous, the host confessed. “I had to watch it walking up those ballroom stairs. Again channeling the Met Ball, I was thinking, ‘What would Rosie [Huntington-Whiteley] do?’ She was rocking a slit beautifully [last night], too!”

As for the host’s makeup, makeup artist Lisa Ashley was all about creating a “dramatic yet simple” look for the evening, opting for a bold eye and statement lip moment. To get Andrews’ smoky eye, the makeup pro began by accenting the star’s eyes with matte cranberry and apricot eye shadow shades (by Viseart) to match the rich shade of her dress and blended them into a smoky state. (As Ashley points out, “smoky doesn’t necessarily have to be blacks and grays — it’s the technique and blending rather than the colors used.”)

After contouring with the Laura Mercier Flawless Contour Palette, Ashley selected a matching cranberry hue for the star’s lips, which is actually the byproduct of many different shades. “Creating the perfect lip is never simple, she confessed. “I can sometimes use up to five different products.” But for this look, the makeup pro mixed together L.A. Girl Semi-Permanent Auto Lip Liner in Dark Plum with KIKO Precision Lip Liner #305 and added sheen with Girlactik Pout Shine in Stunning.

As for Andrews’ hair, she and her stylist Ryan Randall were up for trying something new. “I’ve always wanted to try slicking my hair back for the show,” she told PeopleStyle. “[Last night] we thought this was the right dress to do it with.”

RELATED PHOTOS: All the Latest Scoop on Dancing with the Stars

“Week after week, Erin has trusted us to deliver looks out of her comfort zone, and tonight’s look is no exception,” Randall told PeopleStyle. “We took an editorial approach with this wet, sleek and chic style. Red carpet worthy most definitely, with a nod to the Met Ball happening tonight in N.Y.C.”

The hair pro prepped Andrews’ wet hair with Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer and blew it out, straight and off the face. To get the slick style, Randall re-wet the roots with the same primer spray and added a layer of Moco De Gorila gel for “an ultimate, set it and forget it” slicked-back style. He added slight texture to the back of the do with Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray as a finishing touch.

As for the final look? Andrews loved it — and even made a reference to a favorite supermodel vet. “I was joking around and said I felt like Christie Brinkley when she was filming the pool scene in National Lampoon’s Vacation, ‘So you gonna go for it?’”

But in between shooting, Andrews said she was keeping tabs on the fashion happening on the East Coast (and playing with puppies!). “Backstage during the show we were looking at all the Met Ball photos, and we were laughing about how this was our West Coast version of it.”

Transforming a College: The Story of a Little-Known College’s Strategic Climb to National Distinction

Transforming a College: The Story of a Little-Known College’s Strategic Climb to National Distinction


Forty years ago, North Carolina’s Elon College was struggling to attract students and remain solvent. Today Elon enrolls students from 46 states and 40 foreign countries. Since 1988, it has erected a new library, student center, football stadium, fitness center, and science facilities on its 500-acre campus. The number of applications has risen 40 percent since 1995, and SAT scores of incoming students have improved by 98 points. Elon has emerged as one of America’s most desirable colleges.How did this transformation happen? What can other colleges and universities learn from Elon’s remarkable turnaround? Taking a new approach to the study of higher education, George Keller examines the decisions made by Elon’s administration, trustees, and faculty to transform a school with a limited endowment into a top regional university. Using Elon as a case study, Keller sheds light on high-stakes competition among America’s colleges and universities-where losers face contraction or closure and winners gain money, talented students, and top faculty.

Following its gala dinner at the Louvre in July, the institute will kick off its next banner initiative on Monday: a week of jewelry-centric courses held at The New School’s Parsons School of Design. The five-day program will be broken down each day into morning and afternoon sessions. Morning sessions will be held at a private club on Park Avenue and cover the topics of high jewelry and watches, presented by Yvonne Markowitz, curator of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and Pascal Ravessoud, director of the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie, respectively. Afternoons will be focused on off-site visits, such as the vault of the Museum of the City of New York, Vacheron Constantin, Christian Dior, and the home of jewelry collector Susan Gutfreund. Lunches will include special guests each day, including Henri Barguirdjian, president of Graff Diamonds, Daniel Paltridge, president of Bulgari Corporation of America, and Thomas Bouillonnec, president of Piaget.
The program kicks off on Sunday evening with a cocktail party held at NJI president Judith Price’s home, and will wrap up on Friday evening with a graduation ceremony at Parsons hosted by Dean Joel Towers, where all participants will

National Treasure

National Treasure


Before the birth of Trans Canada Airlines (TCA) in 1937, Canada was one of the very few countries of the world that had no organized air service connecting its principal cities. In 1936, many of the one million people who travelled on scheduled flights in the United States were Canadian citizens who needed to travel south of the border to reach destinations in Canada. C.D. Howe, Minister of Transport in Prime Minister Mackenzie King’s cabinet, was the chief architect of the government-owned TCA. From the beginning, the company was ennobled as more than a means of commercial transport: it was hoped that the TCA, like the Canadian Pacific Railway before it, would “overcome vast geographical barriers, thwart the Americans, reassure the British and unite the country.” Other air companies provided transportation; this one was to be a symbol of national identity – a maple leaf with wings. “National Treasure” details the ins and outs, the backroom politics and the ground-breaking decisions that led to the creation of Trans Canada Airlines, through its early years, to its metamorphosis into Air Canada in the 1950s. The book is an entertaining, well-written account that covers everything from the “teething” problems of the airline in its infancy (such as how to choose the right passenger plane for trans-Canada travel), to the company’s role during World War II, to TCA’s rapid post-war expansion and the notorious infighting between TCA and its rival, Canadian Pacific Airlines. Here are the planes: the Lockheed “14,” which suffered from embarrassing engine failures, the Electra, which featured radio antennas that were prone to lightning strikes, and the Lancaster, which held theTrans-Atlantic non-stop speed record from Montreal to the United Kingdom (11 hours and 14 minutes); the employees: Zebulon Lewis Leigh (“Lewie”), a “barnstormer” who became TCA’s first pilot, and Lucille Garner and Pat Eccleston, registered nurses who became TCA’s first female employees and Canada’s.

Carolina Herrera to be Honored by National Portrait Gallery

PORTRAIT OF A LADY: Carolina Herrera now has reason beyond her new CH Carolina Herrera boutique to return to Washington, D.C. — she has been named one of the 2015 Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery honorees.
Herrera will be celebrated at the inaugural American Portrait gala on Nov. 15 along with fellow winners Aretha Franklin, Maya Lin, Henry “Hank” Aaron and U.S. Marine and Medal of Honor recipient Cpl. Kyle Carpenter. The event singles out individuals whose portraits are in the museum’s collection and each will receive The Portrait of a Nation Prize for their achievements in the arts, business, entertainment, military service or sports and their commitments to service. Herrera’s likeness was captured by the late photographer Robert Mapplethorpe.
The Venezuelan-born designer became a U.S. citizen in 2009.
The museum’s director Kim Sajet said, “Telling the history of this nation through the people who made it is core to our mission, and these honorees are today’s history makers. We are continually working to build the Portrait Gallery’s collection to reflect American achievement by highlighting those who make a difference, and these five people are exemplars in their fields.”

How One 14-Year-Old’s Dream To Help Underprivileged Girls Became A National Success

Most 14-year-olds are busy studying for biology tests, trying out for school sports teams and musical productions, and searching for spare time to sleep. Not Allyson Ahlstrom.

At age 14, she started a non-profit organization, and nearly six years later, Threads for Teens is a nationally-recognized organization doing incredible work. The organization’s mission statement explains that it aims to inspire confidence in young women by providing underprivileged teen girls with the opportunity to pick out a new outfit or two from the back of the company’s mobile boutique, which is run out of the back of a pink 18-wheeler.

The Threads for Teens on Tour truck!!! #cantwaittostart #threadsforteens

A photo posted by threadsforteens (@threadsforteens) on



Threads for Teens is based out of Santa Rosa, California, where they have one stationary store. Their clothing racks, and those on the touring truck, are stocked with clothing and accessories which have been donated by a number of local stores as well as nationwide chains including Santa Rosa’s Punch Clothing, LF Stores, Claire’s, and their latest partner, Rue 21.

Ahlstrom has been recognized by dozens of local and national news stations, and featured on TV shows including the Queen Latifah Show and the TODAY show.

And it doesn’t look like Ahlstrom will be stopping anytime soon. This fall, Ahlstrom is taking her organization and its trusty mobile store on tour around the country to deliver clothing to young women all over the nation.

Ahlstrom told the Huffington Post that her initial inspiration for the organization came from reading a book about other young entrepreneurs called Generation Change.”The book was about different service projects teenagers across the country led, some even as young as 12! It was at that point that I decided to do something myself. I came up with the idea for a one-time clothing drive, that has since grown into a national non-profit organization.”

Asked about her mentality throughout the process, Ahlstrom said “I never thought about not being able to succeed, I mostly thought about how I could accomplish the clothing drive. When starting a project, I think it’s important to have big dreams, but to also be realistic about what will happen to begin with. For me, giving ten girls a new outfit was what I wanted to accomplish. I did not start out thinking about going on a national tour.”

As for her advice to young people who are interested in making a real difference in their communities, Ahlstrom says, “Absolutely do not doubt anything!” She says she was surprised by how eager people were to serve their community and pitch in. She also reminds us that no act is too small to count, saying “volunteering for an hour a week (4 hours a month), can have a profound impact on an organization. Making an impact does not have to be on a gigantic scale.”

Ahlstrom says she wants to “grow Threads for Teens into a global girl empowerment organization.” She says she hopes to “open boutiques in all fifty states and around the world,” and even “develop girl empowerment curriculum, build a scholarship endowment, and host a girls summit.”

Check out the Threads for Teens Facebook page and Twitter profile to stay up to date on Ahlstrom’s progress.

This Is What It Looks Like To Get Rejected On National Television

Getting turned down for a date is humiliating. Getting turned down for a date on national television is the kind of next-level humiliation that haunts you for the rest of your life.

That’s what happened on the latest episode of “The Graham Norton Show,” when a poor, poor man named Thomas asked Jessica, a woman in the audience, out on a date. Apparently, Jessica had already postponed a date with Thomas so she could see Kylie Minogue on Graham’s show.

Little did Jessica know, ol’ Tommy boy was backstage, ready and willing to ask her out again. Little did Thomas know, he was about to get rejected again, only this time on TV. Stone cold.

Watch the clip above to see the cringe-worthy segment in its entirety.

Maya Rudolph Sings Beyonce-Inspired National Anthem At Tulane Graduation

When you invite Maya Rudolph to be your commencement speaker, you can’t expect just a typical speech. Rudolph brought it out at Tulane University’s commencement on Saturday, giving a hysterically inspiring address before doing her own unique interpretation of the National Anthem.

“It really is a true honor to be with all of you as you begin this new phase of your life,” Rudolph told graduates, “as you embark on this exciting and challenging journey of being sober during the day.”

It was the first of many jokes throughout the speech, which included an Oprah imitation (“YOU get a diploma!”) and an extended explanation of her alleged procrastination to write the speech.

Rudolph talked about her telling her father — a Tulane grad — that she wanted to be on Saturday Night Live when she graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz. She went through improv classes and learned the classic rule: to any situation, say “yes, and.”

“Say yes, and,” Rudolph said as advice to the graduates. “Create your own destiny. Hold onto your old friends. Kiss your mama. Admit what your dreams are. Don’t beat yourself up if you don’t know what you’re gonna do tomorrow, but work hard and don’t be lazy. And put away your damn iPhone once in a while.”

To end her speech, she asked graduates to stand. Taking advantage of her time on a mic in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, she sang a ridiculous national anthem — with a bit of Beyonce mixed in.

10 Jaw-Dropping Photos From The 2015 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest

The entries for the 2015 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest are in, and the photographs are as stunning as ever. The annual contest asks photographers from all around world to submit photos in four categories: Travel portraits, outdoor scenes, sense of place, and spontaneous moments.

Photographers are allowed to submit as many photos as they’d like for $ 15 apiece, with no cap on the number one person can enter. The contest, which ends June 30, is still open for entries. Winners will receive a grand prize of an 8-day National Geographic Photo Expedition to Costa Rica and the Panama Canal for two.

Scroll below to see some of the most beautiful photographs submitted to the contest so far:

1. Lighting Up The Night
manish
“I was out in the Arches National Park to take night pictures, but the clouds moved in. I waited for about two hours in the car and finally the sky cleared and I got this image.”
Photograph and caption by Manish Mamtani/National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest

2. Ocean World

“[Bird’s eye view] of a surfer in the famous beach of Praia Mole located in Florianopolis, Brazil. This image has been made with the help of a drone.”

3. Frozen In Time

4. Jal Mahal During Sunrise
ravikanth kurma
“Beautiful view of Jal Mahal during sunrise. I wanted to capture the palace and other two water structures also in the frame. Thats why I have used an ultra wide angle lens to capture this frame. Not many tourists visit the place at dawn, so the location is bit peaceful early in the morning. And locals visit the lake in the morning and feed the pigeons and fish in pond. These pigeons keeps flying across the lake once in a while, which I used to fill my frame.”
Photo and caption by Ravikanth Kurma/National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest

5. Colors Of Earth
maja bednas
“People in Dharavi slum in Mumbai work hard, producing mostly recycled articles and pottery. The posture of these two women at the local pottery store, taking a short break for conversation, [expresses] dignity, while the colors of their saris perfectly blend with the scenery.”
Photo and caption by Maja Bednas/National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest

6. Camping On The Diving Board
matthew saville
“As technology shrinks the world around us, it becomes more and more difficult to find ourselves truly lost in the outdoors. This makes those particular moments and scenes that much more special. Getting to the Diving Board was quite a challenge, as there is no official trail. For anybody who is prepared, careful, and respectful of nature, the reward is one of the most breathtaking views in all of Yosemite, in my opinion.”
Photo and caption by Matthew Saville/National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest

7. When Conditions Are Right
lee scott
“Giant waves converge and jump together along the Na Pali coast of Kauai. An early season northwest swell and the position of the autumn sun made this shot possible, but what really makes it special to me is the bird flying in the corner of the frame. This little moment of life adds balance to the image and reminds me that the mundane often [makes] the spectacular.”
Photo and caption by Lee Scott/National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest

8. Tribal Makeup Artist
s ram
“Taken at a Karo Village in the Omo Valley of Ethiopia. The Karo are famous for their body-paint culture and skill. Away from the crowded village square, I found this ‘makeup artist’ focused on applying makeup on a young woman. Using a Q-tip as a brush he used a Georges Seurat-like pointillism technique! The calm, focused look of the artist is contrasted by the nervous, perspiring client — perhaps unsure about the results (or my camera).”
Photo and caption by S. Ram/National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest

9. Last Light on Godafoss, Iceland
ed graham
“I had a tripod set up on Godafoss waterfall in Iceland last month. I used a 10 stop ND filter to capture the movement of the water as the sun set in the distance.”
Photo and caption by Ed Graham/National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest

10. White Rhinos
stefane berube
“The night before this photo, we tried all day to get a good photo of the endangered white rhino. Skulking through the grass, carefully trying to stay 30 feet away to be safe, didn’t provide me the photo I was hoping for. In the morning, however, I woke up to all three rhinos grazing in front of me.”

America’s National Game

America’s National Game


New – Albert G. Spalding’s addiction to what he saw as a peculiarly American sport began early on the sandlot in Rockford, Illinois. One of the first professional baseball players and later a manager and club owner, he branched out to become a leading manufacturer of sporting goods. “America’s National Game,” published a few years before his death in 1915, lays out the beginnings of baseball and its advancement while dispensing Spalding’s vivid reminiscences and firm opinions.

Bill Maher Says 4/20 Should Be A National Holiday On ‘Real Time’

Bill Maher wants stoner holiday 4/20 to be officially recognized.

On HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher” Friday night, the host announced that he’d created a Change.org petition calling on Congress to make April 20 a national weed-related holiday. He then showed his panelists how he likes to celebrate the day with a reading of “‘Twas the Night Before 4/20,” a riff on the famous poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas.”

“Twas the night before 4/20 and all through the crib,” read Maher, “not a creature was stirring, not even — did you hear something? Is the door locked?”

“I was wearing a T-shirt and shorts from the gym,” he continued. “I had just settled down to watch Adult Swim.”

To see Maher’s actual petition, head over to Change.org.

This Is 12-Year-Old Taylor Swift Singing The National Anthem

A video featuring a baby-faced Taylor Swift is making us feel all kinds of patriotic this week.

In 2002, at the tender age of 12, Swift — decked out in an American flag blouse and red accessories — took to the court before a Detroit Pistons and Philadelphia 76ers game in Philadelphia to belt out the national anthem. A cappella, no less.

The video of Swift’s cherubic performance has been making the rounds on the Internet this week, inducing major “awwws” everywhere. (Watch the throwback clip above.)

T. Swift-related nostalgia has been plentiful in recent days. Just last week, to celebrate the success of her new album “1989,” the 24-year-old star posted a photograph of her 12-year-old self on Instagram.

“I was … going through my braids phase.’ #nofilternecessary,” she wrote.
