These Abandoned Buildings Are Adorned With Stunning Portraits Of Women
Huffington Post - 2 months
For Architectural Digest, by Sara Tardiff. There are few artists whose work you are just as likely to encounter in a gallery as you are walking down the street. Melbourne artist Rone got his start painting stylized, larger-than-life portraits of women not on canvases but in abandoned buildings and other unexpected surfaces around his home city. With more than ten years of work in the industry, Rone is now recognized worldwide, exhibiting in the National Gallery of Australia, collaborating with the likes of Jean-Paul Gautier and showing in galleries from London to San Francisco (and everywhere in between). His haunting paintings are an examination of the synergetic relationship between beauty and decay, installing stunning portraits in spaces that are often ravaged by nature and time. His most recent exhibition, "Empty," took place this past October in the historic Fitzroy building in Melbourne, which is due to be torn down in the coming weeks. Rone fully embraces the fleeting nature o ...

A Look Into The NYC That Was Never Built
Huffington Post - 3 months
For Architectural Digest, by Nick Mafi. It's almost impossible to imagine New York City without such landmarks as Central Park. Yet, were it not for a mid-19th-century bill enacted by the state legislature calling for more than 750 acres to be allocated for the grounds, New Yorkers would've never been able to experience the spoils of the iconic park. But what about other would-be landmarks that, for reasons political or other, were never realized in New York City? The new book Never Built New York (Metropolis Books, 2016) explores that very topic. Included in this tome are unbuilt projects such as a beautiful Park Avenue skyscraper by Zaha Hadid; a design for Brooklyn’s Dodger Stadium that featured a giant dome to shield players and fans from the rain; an airport perched on steel columns 200 feet above street level, spanning from 24th to 71st Street and Ninth Avenue to the Hudson River; and many others. "The drawings in this book . . . are for me not a compendium of nostalgia, re ...

Huffington Post - 3 months
Jennifer Aniston wants women to support women. The 47-year-old actress appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Wednesday morning to discuss her upcoming movie “Office Christmas Party” and what she’s up to this holiday season. During the show, Aniston took a moment to comment on her July 2016 op-ed, “For The Record,” written on The Huffington Post. In her essay, Aniston highlighted the sexism and objectification she experiences on a daily basis from tabloids and gossip sites. “The objectification and scrutiny we put women through is absurd and disturbing,” Aniston wrote. “The way I am portrayed by the media is simply a reflection of how we see and portray women in general, measured against some warped standard of beauty.” Aniston explained that she was inspired to write the piece after she returned from a vacation with her husband. She arrived at the airport to find a mob of paparazzi swarming her, questioning whether she was pregnant based on a tabloid phot ...

Chelsea Handler Jokes About Pitt-Jolie Children In Brutal Roast Of Celebrity Divorces
Huffington Post - 3 months
Chelsea Handler’s favorite pastime ― outside of drinking vodka on a beach somewhere with Jennifer Aniston and topless Instagram posting ― appears to be making fun of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.  Recently, Handler could be heard calling Jolie a “f**king lunatic” in a clip shared around social media. On Thursday night, she slammed the couple once again, but this time it was for a good cause. (Seriously, if someone could medal in Jolie-Pitt roasts, Handler would be running around Hollywood with a torch in hand and more than one gold around her neck.) Speaking at the Gala for the Children, an event raising money for the children’s organization A Place Called Home, Handler took the stage to introduce celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser.  Wasser, who is commonly referred to as the “Disso Queen” (as in “dissolution of marriage”) is currently representing Jolie in her divorce from Pitt. The couple’s children have been the primary focus of the divorce negotiations, as both Pitt ...

There’s more evidence today than ever before that sleep ― and more specifically getting enough of it ― is a key pillar of staying healthy. Snoozing seven to nine hours per night (what experts recommend) has been shown to help with everything from learning to focus to keeping emotions in check to avoiding catching colds to regulating metabolism to preventing chronic diseases like obesity, diabetes, heart disease and some cancers. And while data suggests more than a third of Americans get less than they should, personal testimonials ― like these below from top athletes and other performers ― hint that others are waking up to all the reasons getting enough sleep can be so helpful.

Amy Adams in Arrival: Master of Tongues
Huffington Post - 3 months
In the movie Arrival, Amy Adams plays Louise, a linguist dealing with some creatures from outer space in Denis Villaneuve's parable bringing into our world beings from the beyond. They appear to be giant floaty plasma mushrooms and arrive in an ovoid structure with one part flat. An academic with some sorrow in her past, Louise is enlisted to communicate. Amidst a world of aggressive action against the unknown, the message in how she figures out their language is to behave with gentle caution, with heart open, and optimistic courage. In a movie that values the pleasures of compassion, Amy Adams is not your usual action hero.
