‘Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back’ Inspires Design for Columbia Sportswear Jacket

More than 40 years after “Star Wars” first beamed moviegoers into a galaxy far, far away, Columbia Sportswear will unveil the Star Wars Empire Crew Parka Friday.
The limited-edition jacket is inspired by the original cast and crew — think Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford as opposed to John Boyega and Adam Driver, who will appear in “Star Wars: Episode IX,” due out Stateside Dec. 20, 2019. More specifically, the royal blue outerwear is meant to be reminiscent of the ice planet Hoth scenes in “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.” The unisex $ 500 hooded styles will be sold via columbia.com/StarWars at 12:01 a.m. Friday. There will also be select distribution in Columbia’s freestanding stores in the U.S., Canada, Europe, China, Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea.
Overachieving George Lucas fans can try to score one of a handful of the zip-front parkas signed by Hamill, who they know as Luke Skywalker from the silver screen. This particular piece of fandom will set them back $ 1,980 — intentionally priced to coincide with the year the film was released. But all of the proceeds from the sale will benefit college access programs and scholarships. Shoppers may need lightsabers to try to fend off

Ivanka Trump Executive Strikes Back, Claiming Expansion Continues Across Categories and Distribution

WILL THE OTHER SHOE DROP?: Is Neiman Marcus cutting ties with the Ivanka Trump company to stop selling its jewelry?
That possibility was hashed out and (asserted by some) web sites Friday after noting that Ivanka Trump fine jewelry was no longer available on Neiman Marcus’ web site. But the retailer presented a different picture.
A Neiman Marcus spokeswoman said Friday, “Neiman Marcus has a very small Ivanka Trump precious jewelry business, which is comprised 100 percent of consigned merchandise (merchandise owned by the vendor). Based on productivity, we continuously assess whether our brands are carried in stores, on our web site, or both.”
Executives at Neiman Marcus did not respond to requests for comment about whether that arrangement will continue for fall. Unlike the Ivanka Trump clothing and accessories that are sold in department stores and specialty stores and are geared for working women, the label’s fine jewelry is more expensive and is not sold in mass stores.
Meanwhile, executives at Ivanka Trump have broken their silence about the state of the business, after a few weeks of declining to comment. Rosemary K. Young, senior director of marketing at Ivanka Trump, said in a statement Friday, “The Ivanka Trump brand continues to expand across

The Diaspora Strikes Back

The Diaspora Strikes Back


In The Diaspora Strikes Back the eminent ethnic and cultural studies scholar Juan Flores flips the process on its head: what happens to the home country when it is being constantly fed by emigrants returning from abroad? He looks at how ‘Nuyoricans’ (Puerto Rican New Yorkers) have transformed the home country, introducing hip hop and modern New York culture to the Caribbean island. While he focuses on New York and Mayaguez (in Puerto Rico), the model is broadly applicable. Indians introducing contemporary British culture to India; New York Dominicans bringing slices of New York culture back to the Dominican Republic; Mexicans bringing LA culture (from fast food to heavy metal) back to Guadalajara and Monterrey. This ongoing process is both massive and global, and Flores’ novel account will command a significant audience across disciplines.

Why Your Prescription Takes So Damn Long To Fill: A Foul-Mouthed, Liberal Pharmacist Breaks The Curse Of Christmas And Strikes Back Against

Why Your Prescription Takes So Damn Long To Fill: A Foul-Mouthed, Liberal Pharmacist Breaks The Curse Of Christmas And Strikes Back Against


…. I call your doctors office and am put on hold for 5 minutes, then informed that your prescription was phoned in to my competitor on the other side of town. Phoning the competitor, I am immediately put on hold for 5 minutes before speaking to a clerk, who puts me back on hold to wait for the pharmacist. Your prescription is then transferred to me, and now I have to get the 2 phone calls that have been put on hold while this was being done. Now I return to the counter to ask if we’ve ever filled prescriptions for you before. For some reason, you think that “for you” means “for your cousin” and you answer my question with a “yes”, whereupon I go the computer and see you are not on file. The phone rings…”��� �That’s part of the reason why your prescription takes so long to fill, and after almost 20 years of this, a question I was never quite able to answer loomed larger and larger each day: “Why did I get into this profession?” Cranky customers whose only questions seem to involve their insurance co-pays. Pointless paperwork. People begging for early narcotic refills. Staff cuts. That was my workday. The struggle to get people the medicine and information they needed seemed almost futile at times. Then one day I got the answer. It hit me like a ton of bricks while driving home one spring evening along the California coast. I was born again, but it had nothing to do with Jesus. It did have a lot to do with a little plastic motorcycle. And I did become
