11 Books That Will Change Your Perspective On Mental Illness
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Pat Peoples has just checked out of a psychiatric hospital and is obsessed with exercise. He doesn't remember how or why he ended up in the hospital; all he recalls are flashes of the events leading up to his hospitalization. He wants to focus on his recovery to save his marriage. Peoples is the protagonist of The Silver Linings Playbook, a touching and entertaining novel by Matthew Quick that captures the experience of someone living with a mental illness. The book deals with important themes like treatment, improvements and relapses, daily struggles and overcoming the past. The characters have goals, relationships and obstacles, just like everybody else. Other fiction and nonfiction books -- some of them true classics -- can help fight prejudice against mental illnesses and disorders. They're also informative, engaging and rewarding reads. Here's a list of our favorites: The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression, by Andrew Solomon Considered one of the most important ...

The Rise And Fall Of The Gourmet Cupcake
Business Insider - almost 4 years
Gourmet cupcakes have been popping up everywhere for the past decade. The trend that supposedly started with a "Sex and the City" episode went nuclear when Crumbs Bakery went public in a reverse merger worth $66 million in 2011. But things quickly south for Crumbs, and now it seems the whole trend may be in trouble. The Wall Street Journal declared today that the gourmet cupcake market is crashing. The craze first began in 2000, when Miranda and Carrie munched on Magnolia's Cupcakes on an episode of Sex and the City. People quickly jumped on fashion trends the show featured. This time, they jumped on the culinary trend, too. Tourists started flocking to Magnolia Bakery's West Village location. And then a Sex and the City tour bus made the location a destination on its NYC tour. Emma Forrest wrote an article detailing how the cupcake craze at Magnolia ruined her neighborhood, as tourists began flocking their in droves. Even Magnolia couldn't keep up with the demand ...

Casting Aspersions: Chase, Weiner & Watson
SBS - almost 5 years
TV kings David Chase and Matthew Weiner take on the big screen, while actress Emma Watson hears voices. Since the late 1990s some of Hollywood’s best screenwriters have been smiling politely and backing out the door, sneaking across the road to take up a career in television. Screenwriters have traditionally been the lowest rung on the creative process for mainstream American pictures; a director get first cut and the writer gets replaced. On the small screen writer’s can create and produce their own shows – directors are hired by the episode and it’s much easier to get a scene with eight pages of dialogue shot. But the movies remain mythical, unquantifiable but nonetheless special, and now several of the small screen’s leading writer/producers are plotting to make them. Much of cable television’s dramatic lustre originated with The Sopranos, the sage of a New Jersey mob family (in both senses of the word) created and overseen by David Chase. Chase has been quiet since the acclaimed ...
