Is It Ever Ok To Take Health Advice From A Celebrity?
Huffington Post - 5 months
Maybe you didn’t even personally read the latest celebrity health claim. A friend referenced it in passing on social media – and perhaps your friend didn’t tell you where he or she heard that advice. Or you simply noticed increasing buzz surrounding the topic, more momentum to undergo a health screening, to not vaccinate a child, to steam clean –what?  In the disorienting collision between the fast and furious Information Age and frighteningly complex, ever-evolving 21st century health care, many are at a loss to determine what’s best for their health. With no way to possibly process all the disparate, frequently changing messages, experts say passionate accounts from public figures – celebrities – cut through much of the noise and communicate clearly, where health providers often don’t. “I think the crux of much of this problem is that U.S. adults have very low health literacy,” says Dr. Shelly Campo, an associate professor of community and behavioral health at the Unive ...

10 Things Every Nonprofit Professional Should Do (To Stay Sane)
Huffington Post - 5 months
Adapted from "The Giving Way to Happiness: Stories & Science Behind the Life-Changing Power of Giving," by Jenny Santi. (Tarcher Penguin Random House, 2016) People who choose to work in the social sector start out with at least one advantage: they are motivated by their idealism - as opposed to many others work simply to make a living. Many nonprofit professional are deeply devoted to their organization's mission, and they feel the rewards of a career that "makes a difference." But while nonprofit professionals benefit from a very natural energy source, how do they sustain their motivation, commitment, and passion in the long haul when what they do for a living barely makes a living and the grind never stops? As I gradually discovered, too many people in the nonprofit sector lose their spark and succumb to burnout. Always selling hope and trying to convince others to take action can be emotionally draining. Many of the issues that nonprofits deal with on a daily basis have ...

Pink Strips Down For PETA's 'Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur' Ad
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Pink would “rather go naked than wear fur” -- and that’s not just lip service. The 35-year-old singer has stripped down in support of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ anti-fur campaign. According to E! Online, a 90-foot PETA billboard was erected in New York City’s Times Square on Wednesday featuring the fresh-faced Pink in her birthday suit. The ad, photographed by Ruven Afanador, was unveiled just in time for the start of New York Fashion Week. "I’ve always felt that animals are the purest spirits in the world," Pink, a long-time animal rights activist, told Us Weekly. "They don’t fake or hide their feelings, and they are the most loyal creatures on Earth." In a statement, the “Try” singer urged others to follow in her fur-free footsteps. "I would like to say I've always been fur-free," she said. “Unfortunately, I went through a selfish phase and wore fur on a couple of occasions. But I wised up and now boycott fur completely. I wish everyone ...

Christy Turlington Reveals The Secret To A Successful Marriage In Editorialist

Christy Turlington has more staying power in the modeling industry than most. And as it turns out, her long-lasting streak isn't exclusive to her career, but applies to her relationship, too. The 46-year-old supermodel looks absolutely gorgeous (and ageless) in an archive Alaia top on Editorialist's Spring/Summer 2015 cover. Inside the glossy, she chats about being a mom, her global non-profit organization, Every Mother Counts and of course, that epic career. The most interesting moments, however, come when she discusses her marriage to Ed Burns and how she manages to balance it all. “Most days, it’s impossible. But since becoming a mom, I have my priorities very clear. Family is first," she said. Of course, there is some method to the madness, namely when it comes to the bathroom. “Years ago I put one of my Calvin underwear posters on the back of my husband’s bathroom door," she told the mag, adding, "It’s still there and I tease him about it."

Christy Turlington's Harper's Bazaar UK Cover Isn't Her Best (PHOTO)
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Trust us, we adore Christy Turlington as much as the next supermodel enthusiast. But we just can't get behind her latest cover for Harper's Bazaar UK. The ageless beauty covers the January 2014 issue of the British magazine, donning a plain solid dress like nobody's business (a nod to the model's knack for '90s minimalism, perhaps?). Aside from the on-point, pared-down styling, Christy's pose and facial expression just strike us as a little... awkward. Like we said, she's gorgeous, perfect, inspiring, etc. But as far as this cover goes, do you see what we mean by "awkward"? She's undeniably stunning: Want more?

Cindy Crawford Covers Marie Claire Mexico In Tribute To María Félix (PHOTOS)
Huffington Post - about 3 years
We've been sensing a supermodel resurgence lately, with Christie Brinkley getting back into the game with her daughter, Sailor, and Christy Turlington re-upping with Calvin Klein for a new underwear campaign at 44. Now Cindy Crawford is here to remind us that her on-camera skills are better than ever, covering the latest issue of Marie Claire Mexico as the "reina de las pasarelas" (queen of the catwalk). The shoot, photographed by John Russo, is a tribute to Mexico; Cindy plays the role of María Félix, channeling the iconic Mexican actress with her hat, her serpent baubles and a cigar in hand. As a fashion spread concept, it's actually been done before. In 2010, Daria Werbowy paid tribute to Félix for V Magazine, sporting slightly skimpier attire but staying true with the brown cigarette. But we happen to like Cindy's version with the arm baubles and crisp white shirt. With that deadly sexy facial expression, the 47-year-old model proves she's not one to be outdone. PHOTOS: ...

What No One Is Talking About: Maternal Deaths, Mental and Physical Trauma in the United States
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Three years ago, just after giving birth to my baby girl, I started hemorrhaging. The doctors told me that they would try to save my uterus and ovaries, but if that was not possible, I would have to get a hysterectomy. Then, if the bleeding did not stop, I would die. What had been nine months of a drama-free pregnancy had now turned into a drama-filled nightmare. I had a relatively easy, but long (twenty-seven hour) labor. Once I was ready, delivery was fast and easy -- I remember thinking it was almost too easy. Ten pushes and twenty minutes later, my beautiful daughter was born. As I held her in my arms for a few moments, I could feel a shift in the mood of the hospital room. Before I knew it, the serenity of the room was tainted by the sounds of warning beeps from the machines I was hooked up to and the room became flooded with strangers. Enter emergency personnel. My husband and daughter were rushed out of the room and taken into the nursery. Blood was pouring out of my body as ...

Isaac Mizrahi: The Modeling Industry Doesn't Have A Body Problem Anymore
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Are models too skinny? Too big? Do they all have eating disorders? Are they giving us all eating disorders? The debate over models' bodies -- and the messages they send -- has grown loud enough to get even Vogue and the CFDA involved. But there are industry vets with a different perspective on the matter. Isaac Mizrahi, for one, thinks fashion has already overcome the worst. In a conversation with HuffPost Style about fashion, shopping and his role on "Project Runway All Stars," Isaac told us that when it comes to too-skinny models, "we're past it being a problem": "I don't notice girls anymore in the majority who are sickly-looking. Even if they're tall and thin now, they look healthier to me. Not fat, not fatter, but they just look healthier. I mean this -- there was a moment when there was this whole heroin chic thing and it just looked terrible. It just looked terrible! And now everyone points at it and goes, 'Oh dear, that's terrible.' And the girls are encouraged to be thin, ...

100,000 Musicians Support Charities Through Music for Good
Huffington Post - over 3 years
When music industry website ReverbNation decided it was time to give back, it looked to its customers for inspiration. How could nearly three million artists, venue owners and industry professionals make a difference? Then a lightbulb went off inside the mind of the company's co-founder and president, Jed Carlson: Name the program Music for Good and let the musicians choose the organizations they want to support. That's when I got the call. Connecting charities and musicians is my business, so ringing up colleagues at some of the world's most trusted nonprofits and curating the list of organizations was a rewarding task. ReverbNation launched the program on its website and asked artists to put one or more of their songs for sale on the Music for Good page, where the bands split profits 50/50 with a charity of their choosing. Yet what happened next surprised all of us: After we got 13 charities on board, and artists began selling songs, Music for Good took off by itself without any ...
