How Donald Trump Weaseled His Way Into Getting Salma Hayek’s Number

In 2016, Salma Hayek revealed that, many years ago, President Donald Trump asked her out. 

According to Hayek, she rejected Trump’s advances and, as a result, he told the National Enquirer that he had rejected her because she was too short.

After this story broke in October, many wondered how Trump got his tiny little hands on Hayek’s number in the first place. Well, now, she’s telling the awkward tale behind their initial meetup.

During a recent appearance on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” Noah asked Hayek about this particular incident and the 50-year-old actress spilled so much tea.

It all started when Hayek was cold at an event and Trump, who just happened to be sitting behind her and her then boyfriend, immediately put his coat around her shoulders.

“I turn around and my boyfriend — so charming, so nice — he said hello [to Trump],” she recalled. “[Trump] said, ‘I’m sorry, your girlfriend, I saw she was cold.’ And then he kept talking to my boyfriend.”

Trump sparked up a little friendship with Hayek’s boyfriend that night and eventually told the couple they should stay in his hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey, if they were ever in town. He asked for their phone numbers and, according to Hayek, Trump never spoke to her boyfriend again.

But he did give her a ring.

“He’s inviting me out, and I’m like, ‘What about my boyfriend? Am I crazy? Are you asking me out? You know I have a boyfriend,’” she explained, adding that Trump responded with, “‘He’s not good enough for you. He’s not important, he’s not big enough for you. You have to go out with me.’”

Noah then joked that Trump was right. Hayek did not end up with that boyfriend and instead married French billionaire François-Henri Pinault in 2009.

DESIGN’S SIGN OF APPROVAL: Designers and manufacturers from 54 countries have entered a record number of more than 5,500 product innovations for this year’s Red Dot Awards. This year’s Product Design awards will be doled out on July 3 at Essen’s Aalto-Theater.
Contenders for the “Red Dot: Best of the Best” will be doled out to such firms as Audi, Kartell, Artemide, Hansgrohe, Bora, Electrolux, LG, Canyon Bicycles, Philips, Puma, Niessing, Apple and Bose. Two recurring themes were nature and sustainability in materials and in product design. One example of that was the “biobrush” toothbrush using plastic and packaging based on cellulose made from leftover wood from sustainable forestry. Virtually carbon neutral, the toothbrush was made with paints and plastic that are biodegradable, even its packaging can be composted for a garden. For that reason, the “biobrush” was awarded the Red Dot: Best of the Best.
Jurors also noted the continued influx of robotics and new technology on the design process. While industrial robots are already prevalent, other robots are starting to be used for mowing lawns, cleaning windows and vacuuming.

Terrifying Musical Number Imagines A World Without Internet

Which can you survive without longer — food, water, sleep or cat videos?

As our time gets swallowed up by cyberspace, it might feel like the latter.

But what if you had to live, really live, without the Internet?

AVbyte (with Vine star Thomas Sanders) pondered the unthinkable and came up with one catchy song-and-dance number.

“Without my Internet, without my steady streams, how will I ever find the dankest of the dankest memes?,” they sing.

We shudder at the possibility.

A Ridiculous Number Of People Are Having Sex At The Gym

Welp, looks like there’s another benefit to going to the gym. Nearly 25 percent of British gym-goers have had sex at their place of fitness, according to a recent survey. 

More than half of those surveyed said they’ve used the gym as a place to hook up, while 10 percent said they stash a condom in their gym bag. 

The online survey of 2,000 people was conducted by sex shop Ann Summers – not exactly a perfect method of data collection. Still, an eyebrow-raising 20 percent of responders have done the deed with their personal trainers. Even if they never consummated, 70 percent of women admitted to fantasizing about their personal trainers while having sex.  

This news is a bit unsettling, considering the petri dish that is the gym, where staph, E. coli, candida and other bacteria are prevalent. Not exactly sexy. 

Of course, exercise increases a person’s blood flow, which can put them more in the mood. Sweating, which we are wont to do at the gym, also increases the release of pheromones, the chemical that attracts potential partners through scent. 

Do what you do, people.

Number 6 Burns Like an Orange Flame

2015-05-13-1431554362-174799-low_res_orange_reflections.jpg

Say the number six and it sits at my temples, a serrated, moist tangerine sheen moving like fire. I prefer the number seven, pale turquoise and floating like a cottony cloud before my eyes. But my favorite has always been the number four, earthy, silent, smelling of mushrooms and cube-shaped.

I can admit this now without self-consciousness.

As a child I thought everyone perceived the world in this way. Until I realized they didn’t. To avoid ridicule, I quickly learned to keep silent. The same silence recognized by some others of you reading this now. To me, numbers appear in color. Letters appear in color. Emotions are evoked by these splashes of hue. Have you ever burst out in tears while in a museum looking at Mark Rothko’s color field paintings? The experience is visceral and embarrassing. It offers some comfort to know that others have had this same experience or a similar one when listening to a piece of music.

Only a short decade ago I found out this condition has a name: synesthesia.

The world is perceived differently by a person with synesthesia. Furthermore, each synesthete perceives colors and senses in unique ways different from other synesthetes. Synesthesia is also not typically taught in medical school. To those unfamiliar with synesthesia, it may be falsely considered a disorder. No citations can be found in any of the major pediatric medical journals. In adult medical journals it has sometimes been associated with drug use or a personality trait along a broad continuum that, in its far extreme, includes schizophrenia. Classic migraine sufferers with visual auras may have a higher incidence of synesthesia. Some report a higher incidence in those with autism. One famous autistic synesthete is Daniel Tammet, author of Born on a Blue Day.

Synesthesia in its true sense is not a mental health condition, artificially-induced condition, nor anything more than an inheritable trait, much like hair color and height.

Estimates place all combined forms of synesthesia at 3-4 percent of the population. Synesthesia may in fact define a new type of gifted, requiring a new approach to education, as reported HERE.

Synesthesia is reported more frequently among artists, musicians, poets and writers. Only recently is synesthesia becoming more recognized in the mainstream. In his book, researcher Dr. Cretien van Campen calls synesthesia “The Hidden Sense,” and for some it remains so in part for fear of judgement.

Synesthesia essentially means “one sense” and was even mentioned by the ancient Greeks. A mixing of signals between what we in western cultures learn are the five basic senses of taste, touch, sight, hearing, smell. I say “Western cultures,” as other cultures do not always split the senses so discretely. Dr. van Campen makes this point in his book, and others have also noted cultural differences.

Each synesthete experiences the world in a different way. important to mention that people with synesthesia are not all alike. Some synesthetes taste sounds. Some hear colors. Some sense music on their skin.  Some can even “taste rainbows.” Some, like me, limit their synesthesia to mostly numbers and letters. Dr. Sean Day, president of the American Synesthesia Association, states there may be as many as 63 varieties of synesthesia. Dr. Day was interviewed by BlogTalk Radio/The CoffeeKlatch about this subject.

But what is synesthesia and why do some people experience it? Dr. Richard E. Cytowic, a researcher in synesthesia, produced this TEDEd video introduction:

Neurologist Dr. V.S. Ramachandran also discusses synesthesia mid-way through his TEDTalk. It seems that some of our brain’s sensory-related systems occur in very close conjunction with each other. Too many interconnections (or too few) can entirely change the way we perceive our environment. The close anatomic basis and the brain’s neuroplasticity may make synesthesia more common than we believe it to be.

Especially in a child’s developing brain, there is a constant building and pruning of connections. In my opinion, it isn’t entirely out of the question to consider that crossing and re-crossing of senses may occur at this and other fragile points of life. Some children are known to experience a hypersensitivity to external inputs, be it auditory, visual, tactile, taste, or odors. A number of these children may be diagnosed with sensory-processing disorder. I sometimes wonder if a subset of these children are simply experiencing varying levels of synesthesia that become overwhelming.

Synesthetes are inspired by colors. The same can be said of most children. Some parents may be told their children are natural visual and musical artists. Watch them paint. A blue horse? What’s abnormal about that? Children love to make music (and dance to it) in a wild spontaneous way. The music makes them feel emotion and sense color. Have a child draw a picture of music. More than likely they will splash the paper with a variety of colors dependent upon what emotions and colors speak to them through the music.

With time, many of these same children either lose their synesthetic perceptions or begin to conform to societal and cultural expectations. Only a small actual percentage of adults retain and express synesthesia traits.

My own son since a very young age has been very particular about color. When he was quite young, this has often been to the dismay of art teachers. He could easily spend most of an entire class just mixing the “right” blue or green or red. To ask a child with synesthesia to paint something blue is asking a lot. So much goes into choice and the “wrong” color speaks loudly like nails on a chalkboard.

Some researchers who have looked into whether synesthesia can be learned, believe it can to some degree. We do know synesthesia can be acquired, in particular through brain injury as was the case with Jason Padgett who became a mathematical savant synesthete after a significant brain injury.

Researchers are now using genetic testing and brain imaging to better understand synesthesia.

Perhaps the ability for synesthesia exists asleep in each one of us,  just out of reach and consciousness. But the lack of complete understanding is a jolting reminder that there is still so much more to learn about the mind and how much caution we must meanwhile take in interpreting human behaviors and abilities.

Whether synesthesia is a strength is certain. Award-winning musician Pharrell Williams has been very vocal about his synesthesia. A few other well-known synesthetes include Duke Ellington, David Hockney, Richard Feynman, Itzhak Perlman, Vladimir Nabokov, Norton Juster, Vincent van Gogh, and many many more.

It is a definite comfort to share a unique ability with such an illustrious group. But the surprise and subsequent fear people as a whole experience of being different often keeps them prisoners in their own minds. This is true of synesthetes as well as anyone with an ability that exists outside the narrow range that society labels with the term “neurotypical.”

The message that cannot be said too often is this: The whole of society needs to more readily embrace atypical minds. The strength and the future of the human race is in our differences, not our similarities.

L.A. Reid Says It’s Not ‘Realistic’ For Mariah Carey To Make Another Number One Hit

Mariah Carey has a new compilation of her number one hits entitled, “#1 to Infinity.” Sound familiar? Yes, it’s her third. On Monday, the songstress gave fans a sneak peek of the music video for the album’s lead single, “Infinity.”

Although the single failed to crack Billboard’s Top 10 charts — it debuted at 82 earlier this month— Carey’s longtime label boss, L.A. Reid, says it’s not “realistic” to expect the Grammy Award-winning songstress to regain her previous chart-topping success in today’s music climate.

“Mariah Carey made her first hit record in 1991. To even be on the radio at this point in her career is a huge accomplishment, because radio doesn’t cater to veteran artists or legends,” he said.

But he didn’t stop there. In a new interview with Billboard, Reid explained why he feels veteran artists such as Carey, Bruce Springsteen and Prince have difficulty earning radio airplay.

“Radio caters to in-the-moment stars… Nobody that put out records 25 years ago is going to have a No. 1. Not Paul, Stevie, Bruce, Mick or Keith. Not Prince, not anyone. So if she can get on the radio, we’ve done damn good. Would we like to have a No. 1? F– yeah, I’m greedy. But it’s not realistic.”

Reid’s revealed his solution for veteran artists to the mag. “I like concept records, I like the idea of thematic, storytelling records. I love duets and the Great American Songbook. I think a great vocalist should un-cage themselves and think about things like that sometimes,” he stated.

“I mean, Frank Sinatra did it. It’s fun to sing songs you love. And let’s not forget that one of Mariah’s biggest hits, ‘I’ll Be There,’ was a cover. There are many things that Mariah can still do.”

Philip Seymour Hoffman Investigation Suspect Had Actor’s Phone Number, Authorities Say

NEW YORK (AP) — At least one of four people arrested during an investigation of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman’s suspected fatal heroin overdose had the actor’s cellphone number, two law enforcement officials said Wednesday.

Investigators zeroed in on the four after a tipster, responding to publicity about Hoffman’s death, told police he had seen Hoffman at the lower Manhattan apartment building where they were arrested on Tuesday and he believed that’s where Hoffman got the heroin, the officials said. In searches of two apartments in the building, police found hundreds of packets of heroin in one of them, according to a criminal complaint. But prosecutors declined to pursue charges against one of the four, saying there was no evidence that he had control of the drugs or the apartment in which they were found, and two of the others were charged only with a misdemeanor charge of possessing cocaine, not heroin. Only one, jazz musician Robert Vineberg, was facing a felony charge of heroin possession with intent to sell.

Lawyers for the three people charged vigorously denied their clients had any role in Hoffman’s death and suggested they were being swept up in a maelstrom of attention surrounding the actor’s demise.

“This case and the charges against Mr. Vineberg have absolutely nothing to do with the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman. … We’re hoping the (district attorney) will not use Mr. Vineberg as a scapegoat,” said his lawyer, Edward Kratt, who declined to say whether Vineberg knew Hoffman.

The arrests came two days into the high-profile case, reflecting the attention and urgency it has attracted. All three of the people charged were indicted within a day after their arrests, a fairly unusual step, and were being held without bail. The two charged with cocaine possession, Juliana Luchkiw and Max Rosenblum, a couple who are neighbors of Vineberg’s, were visibly dismayed when a judge denied them bail, though their lawyers hoped to revisit the issue Thursday.

“She’s not a drug dealer. She’s a college student,” attending a design school, said Luchkiw’s lawyer, Stephen Turano.

Rosenblum’s lawyer, Daniel Hochheiser, said his client “has nothing to do with Philip Seymour Hoffman.”

Luchkiw and Rosenbaum had two bags of cocaine, while investigators found about 300 packets of heroin, a bag of cocaine and about $ 1,200 in cash in Vineberg’s apartment, according to criminal complaints.

Investigators have determined that the “Capote” star made six ATM transactions for a total of $ 1,200 inside a supermarket near his home the day before his death, law enforcement officials have said. Investigators are examining a computer and two iPads found at the scene for clues and recovered syringes, a charred spoon and various prescription medications, including a blood pressure drug and a muscle relaxant, law enforcement officials have said.

Police learned from phone records that one of the suspects had Hoffman’s number, strengthening the theory that they may have supplied him with drugs, the law enforcement officials said. The officials, who weren’t authorized to speak about evidence in the ongoing investigation of the death and spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity, didn’t identify which of the suspects had the number.

Some of the packets found in Hoffman’s apartment were variously stamped with the ace of hearts and others with the ace of spades. Those found in the building where the arrests occurred had different brand names, including Black List and Panda, the officials said.

Police were waiting for a cause of death for the Oscar-winning actor from the medical examiner’s office, which said on Wednesday that more tests were needed.

There was no timetable for Hoffman’s autopsy to be finished, said medical examiner’s office spokeswoman Julie Bolcer, who declined to discuss the pending tests. Toxicology and tissue tests are typically done in such cases.

Hoffman, 46, was found dead Sunday with a needle in his arm, and tests found heroin in samples from at least 50 packets in his apartment in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village, law enforcement officials have said.

Courts have found that under state law drug dealers can’t be held liable for customers’ deaths.

A 1972 state appellate division case found a dealer can’t be found guilty of manslaughter or criminally negligent homicide for selling heroin and syringes to a customer who later dies because, the court ruled, legislation enhancing punishment for drug crimes didn’t redefine homicide to include the sale of an illicit drug that results in death.

And holding a drug dealer criminally liable for a customer’s overdose death could prove difficult for the district attorney’s office, said James Cohen, a Fordham University School of Law professor who runs a clinic that represents federal criminal defendants.

“It’s not just enough that you know, if you will, theoretically or academically, that heroin could kill,” he said.

Former police detective Scott Prendergast, who worked on the high-profile investigation into the 1996 heroin overdose death of Jonathan Melvoin, a keyboard player touring with the rock band Smashing Pumpkins, said it’s not uncommon for investigators to track down dealers following suspected overdose deaths especially when the drugs are stamped with telling names.

A private funeral for relatives and close friends of Hoffman is set for Friday, and a larger memorial service will be held later this month, his publicist Karen Samfilippo said.

On Wednesday night, Broadway theaters dimmed their lights in memory of the Tony Award-nominated actor, and members of the theater community held a candlelight vigil for him.

Reasons to Drink Number Two: We Drink to Remember

We live in a world that dances to a liquid soundtrack of alcohol, and it’s a beautiful if bitter sweet song ruined occasionally by a harshly discordant note that sounds a lot like someone falling head-first off a table, or projectile vomiting up the side of a completely defenseless building.

Alcohol has the power to make life memorable, which is not always a good thing, but explains why our celebrations are so steeped in it. There is, quite simply, nothing we won’t celebrate with a drink. We toast life, we toast death, marriage and birth, farewells and returns. Just as when we suffer we drink to forget, when emotions run high in the other direction, we drink to remember and the same thing that will make you forget your own mother in large enough quantities is used to lubricate that joy. This lubricant will probably be champagne, the world drink of celebration and I guess by proxy what happiness tastes like. We’ve even made it a part of our very own coming of age; Voting, Consent, Driving and Drinking, the ages at which we can legally use the four most useful things in the world; wheels, political choice, a nice cold beer, and our own penis/vagina.

Some occasions are particularly soaked in alcohol and occasionally just as flammable. Prior to the wedding that we will undoubtedly celebrate with a drink to the sound of popping corks, we embark on one of the most hedonistic nights of our lives where we ritually say goodbye to the us that was and welcome in the us that will be, all to the sound of snapping G strings, the smell of some kind of bronzing agent and the taste of alcohol; lots and lots of alcohol. At Christmas we put brandy in the butter and drink beverages that taste like the holidays themselves; be it nog, or mulled wine. Personally I’m amazed a drinks brand with a particularly duplicitous marketing department hasn’t come up with a tenuous link to Mothers day or Valentines in the way Baileys Irish Cream has wormed its way so successfully into Christmas. Perhaps in the future these other days will taste of Chartreuse or, god forbid, Sambuca, who knows.

Nothing however compares to New Year. New Years Eve has grown to become a booze-fuelled celebration dedicated to memory; to remembering those past, lost or forgotten, to mark the end of another year with hope for the next while we raise a cup of kindness to the lilting melody of Auld Lang Syne, probably singing the same verse over and over again because no one has taken the time to look up the second verse on Wikipedia or ironically have once again forgot it.

What it all comes down to is liquid punctuation. The drinking isn’t the occasion itself, just a handy excuse. It doesn’t form the backbone, but can cap it off beautifully like a drinkable full stop. It can add a moment of drama in the form of a raised glass, help us pause for a moment and take stock like a handy comma, pose a question, or hashtag a shared memory communally forever.

Whatever, wherever or whoever we want to remember we can do it just as well if not better with a glass in hand and sometimes we owe it to them to do just that.

Which only leaves me to pour a glass myself and toast a happy Christmas and a magical New year to all of you, you’ve earned it I’m sure.

Here’s to you.

NB:
And surely you’ll buy your pint cup,

And surely I’ll buy mine

And we’ll take a cup of kindness yet, for auld lang syne

For auld lang syne, my dear. For auld lang syne

We’ll take a cup of kindness yet. For auld lang syne.
