Volvo Says Americans Are Shifting Their Luxury Thinking

Are American consumers shifting their thinking of what luxury means?
Volvo Car USA thinks so. Volvo, which is repositioning the brand into the luxury space, partnered with The Harris Poll to get some insight on American attitudes on different themes, such as design, safety, technology and environment. The latest study on luxury indicates that Americans are rethinking their attitudes toward their possessions, looking to streamline and declutter their lives. The poll was conducted from April 26 to May 1, surveying more than 2,014 U.S. adults over the age of 18.
According to the study, 82 percent of Americans agree that people have too much stuff, while a slightly higher percentage at 85 percent said they are actively working to declutter and simplify their spaces. That includes 49 percent looking to declutter their bedrooms, while 34 percent are looking to streamline their wardrobes. Millennials in particular at 60 percent said they have more stuff than they did 10 years ago.
The study also found that respondents are saying they are shifting away from quantity, with 68 percent agreeing that “when it comes to modern luxury, less is more.” The latter has impacted purchase volumes and frequency in connection with how they spend for “modern

This Billy Ray Cyrus Tweet Has Everyone Thinking Miley Secretly Got Married

He’s just being Billy. 

In today’s edition of OMG dad you’re so embarrassing, Billy Ray Cyrus, father of national treasure and professional tongue wagger Miley Cyrus, might have spilled the beans on his daughter’s secret wedding. Or at least that’s what he wanted people online to think. 

The former mullet-haver shared a cryptic photo (of a photo) featuring the “We Can’t Stop” singer beaming in a white dress to let the world know how happy he is for her. Totally sweet, right? 

Except the tweet essentially sounded the alarm for Miley fans everywhere to lose any semblance of chill over the prospect that she had finally tied the knot with her on-and-off-again “Hunger Games” fiancé Liam Hemsworth

Then, Billy Ray, officially the least helpful person ever, began retweeting reactions of fans freaking out on social media, fueling the Miley-and-Liam-secret-wedding fire. 

Earlier this year, she and Hemsworth rekindled their relationship after calling off their engagement in 2013 amid the Miley VMAs twerk debacle. During an interview with Ellen DeGeneres last year, the pop star confirmed that she was back with Hemsworth when the host asked about her engagement ring. For the record, neither Miley nor Liam has yet to address the rumors on their social media channels.

Listen, whether Miley got married or not isn’t really the most pressing question here. What we want to know is: Did she pop, lock and polka-dot it, “Hoedown Throwdown”-style, on the dance floor?

The Huffington Post has recached out to Cyrus’ representatives and will update the post accordingly.

Jennifer Lawrence Says What We’re All Thinking About Being A Bridesmaid

Jennifer Lawrence is all too familiar with the long hours, demanding schedule and slew of difficult personalities that come along with… being a bridesmaid.

Lawrence stars on Vanity Fair’s Holiday 2016 cover. And inside the mag, she reveals that after four times serving as a bridesmaid, she’s done playing a part in friends’ wedding parties. 

“Weddings rock, but I will never be a bridesmaid again,” she said. “There needs to be a bridesmaids’ union. It’s horrendous. If anyone asks me again, I’m going to say, ‘No. That part of my life is over. I appreciate the ask.’”

She feels so strongly about it, she apparently plans to forego picking her own.

“If I do ever get married, I don’t think I will have bridesmaids,” she added. “How can I rank my friends?” 

Of course, serving as a bridesmaid can be a meaningful and beautiful experience for any friend. But do it a few times and you’ll realize that Lawrence pretty much hit the nail on the head here.

All those in favor of forming a bridesmaids union, say “I!”

Lean Thinking for Healthcare

Lean Thinking for Healthcare


A growing, aging population; the rise to epidemic proportions of various chronic diseases; competing, often overlapping medical technologies; and of course, skyrocketing costs compounded by waste and inefficiency – these are just a few of the multifarious challenges currently facing healthcare delivery. Anunexpected source of solutions is being imported from the manufacturing sector: lean thinking. Lean Principles for Healthcare presents a conceptual framework, management principles, and practical tools for professionals tasked with designing and implementing modern, streamlined healthcare systems or overhauling faulty ones. Focusing on core components such as knowledge management, e-health, patient-centeredness, and collaborative care, chapters illustrate lean concepts in action across specialties (as diverse as nursing, urology, and emergency care) and around the globe. Extended case examples show health systems responding to consumer needs and provider realities with equal efficiency and effectiveness, and improved quality and patient outcomes. Further, contributors tackle the gamut of technological, medical, cultural, and business issues, among them: Initiatives of service-oriented architecture towards performance improvementAdapted lean thinking for emergency departmentsLean thinking in dementia care through smart assistive technologySupporting preventive healthcare with persuasive servicesValue stream mapping for lean healthcareA technology mediated solution to reduce healthcare disparitiesGeared toward both how lean ideas can be carried out and how they are being used successfully in the real world, Lean Principles for Healthcare not only brings expert knowledge to healthcare managers and health services researchers but to all who have an interest in superior healthcare delivery.

Coming to Your Senses: How to Stop Your Negative Thinking

In this video, Eckhart Tolle explains the present moment is a portal to eliminate our negative thinking. He says as soon as you realize you are entering a non-harmonious state of mind, such as: worry, anxiety, anger, or unhappiness in any form, you’ve lost track of the present moment– you believe something else is more important.

Unknowingly, many people live in an unhappy state of mind, but are unaware of it. Eckhart likens this to a noisy refrigerator running in the background that you don’t hear any longer because you’ve become accustomed to it. Suddenly, the refrigerator breaks down and you notice the silence, and only then do you become aware there was a noisy refrigerator in the room. Your negative thoughts are the noisy refrigerator buzzing along.

Present moment awareness is the conscious redirecting of your thinking mind into the direct perception and inner alignment with the present moment. Eckhart refers to this process as, literally coming to your senses.

Be silent, look around and listen, become aware of your breathing. Be here now. There is nothing more important than the present moment. As you consciously enter the present moment the thinking mind with negative thoughts recedes, and you wake up from being immersed in the voice in your head.

5 Tips About How to Stop Thinking Like a Starving Artist

Most of my life I believed that if I went after a creative career I would struggle financially. It was deeply ingrained in my belief system. I would think about phrases like “poor starving artist” and “feast and famine are part of an artist’s life”. It was a nonsensical belief system that was very damaging to my motivation. I literally believed all artists or creative’s had a hard time.

2015-05-06-1430947342-2805449-towel.jpg

I also felt like if I enjoyed my work and my creative projects, somehow I shouldn’t be paid properly or at all. Because I get joy from design, writing and art it used to be hard to expect actual money from being creative. Some people don’t value the arts as much as others. I have found a wide range of appreciation towards artistic projects from other people. Many people I have met have a great appreciation for design, writing and paintings. Other people I have met don’t value it at all. So as you can see the attitude and value is very different depending on the person viewing the work. How you value your own work is the most important part when getting over old crappy belief systems. You must believe you are good enough and talented enough. The rest falls into place with more confidence each step of the way.

My second belief deeply ingrained in me was if people thought I was creative they did not think I was business savvy. So I had a silly thought that I could not be creative and business smart at the same time. I held onto this conflict for most of my life. I am now 38 and realized a couple of years ago that I needed to change my inner thoughts around creativity, business and art. My life and business changed drastically, once I switched my thinking around.

1. Find some audio tapes so you can replace your belief system around feeling like a starving artist.
Start listening to people, podcasts and audio that speak highly of creativity and art. Invite people into your life that respect and admire your work. Focus on telling yourself the opposite of what you believe about money and creativity. I personally found I had to completely change my way of thinking around my work and what I have to offer the world. It took serious focus and quite of bit of time listening to other positive words around the subject. Audio tapes about positive thinking, business and art became my new best friends.

2. Make more art!
I say F**k what other people think. Don’t be shy, don’t hold yourself back, and don’t stop being you creatively because you are afraid. The more you feel inhibited, do the opposite and jump into your creative side, go for it. Use the fear like it is oil to fire. Be stubborn and keep creating!

2015-05-06-1430948234-5727044-emailheader.jpg

3. Read more about what you feel afraid to learn, or think you can’t learn.
I felt uncomfortable around selling and marketing my own creations. So I switched my thinking and read as much business and marketing books I could possibly get my hands on. I hated this thought at first because all I wanted to do was design, draw, sketch, paint and write! It felt awful at first but once I took control, I felt so much better. The best part was, I felt more confident about my work in every way, including business. As soon as I faced my fears, I started earning more money for my creative efforts. The results felt instant!

4. Vulnerability brings great lessons in life.
Being vulnerable with your art, writing and creativity can be a huge step for some, including me. I always shied away from truly putting myself in front of people. I really disliked the feeling of possibly being rejected or feeling judged. I decided that my vulnerability was just what I needed to go forward. Nowadays if I feel vulnerable I take it as a sign that I need to do more of it. The rebel side of me comes out and I just make the leap into the unknown and see what happens. Feeling rejected is all part of the process. Of course we are going to get rejected sometimes but you can’t get a big fat “yes” if you don’t try. Trust me, the uncomfortable feelings soften and become less of an issue, the more you simmer with your own vulnerability.

2015-05-06-1430948075-3169133-femalelookingbeyond.jpg

5. Hide out for awhile and stop any outside influences from interrupting your change of thinking.
Changing how you perceive something takes time. You may need to back away from friends or family for a little while, until you get grounded on your new way of looking at creativity. For me, if I honor my ideas by executing them and being true to myself I then value my work in a much higher regard. Taking yourself seriously and working hard, can increase your creativity and trusting the process can open up opportunities as if by magic.

John Cleese Says What You Were Thinking About Taylor Swift’s Cat

If you’ve ever looked at Taylor Swift’s cat and thought “What is wrong with that thing?” then maybe you are John Cleese. On “The Graham Norton” show, the audience swooned over a photo of Olivia Benson (because probably there was a cue card that told them to make an “ooh” sound), but Cleese stopped to say what everyone at home was really thinking.

“How did it have the accident?” he asked Swift. “Is that a proper cat? Or is it damaged irreparably? That’s the weirdest cat I’ve ever seen in my life.” She was not amused.

Cleese then went on to compare cats to women, and things got less funny and kind of weird. He’ll regret all of this when Taylor releases her new song about him: “The Purrfect Revenge.”

We Don’t Understand What The Ladies On This Week’s Worst-Dressed List Were Thinking

We’re not quite sure what the stars on this week’s worst-dressed list were thinking. Our roundup is filled with fashion fails that could have definitely been avoided.

For example, Saoirse Ronan forgot to dress her age and actress Maggie Grace wore pajamas on the red carpet. And sadly, we had to bestow the title of worst-dressed star this week to actress Julianne Moore for rocking a dress that she should have never put on her back.

Here’s a look at all our wost-dressed picks of the week. Let us know if you agree.

Saoirse Ronan

saoirse ronan
Why, Saoirse? Why? There is no reason that a beautiful young actress should ever be caught in such an unflattering get-up. She should befriend Emma Watson and raid her closet.

Laura Vandervoort

laura vandervoort
The major problem with this outfit is… everything! From the wet hair, cropped/half-peplum top and that stiff tea-length skirt, Laura would have been better off just staying home.

Regina King

regina king
One word: Ouch! It’s unclear what exactly is holding together the front of Regina’s dress, but they definitely look painful. Furthermore, the capped gown is ill-fitting and does nothing for the actress’ fantastic figure.

Julianne Moore

julianne moore
We hate to include Julianne on our worst-dressed list, but this dress is a fail. The asymmetrical design is awkward, frumpy and a far cry from the fabulous looks we’re used to seeing her in. Those strappy heels were also no-no, too.

Maggie Grace

maggie grace
PSA: Never wear night gowns on the red carpet.
