Vox Pop: With supermarkets now stocking mince pies, is it too early to think of Christmas?
The Bucks Herald - over 3 years
The Bucks Herald asks the opinions of five Vale residents in the town centre. Jason Thorp, Wendover: “Normally I leave everything until the last minute but last year I started early and I had all the presents by early December. I haven’t started shopping yet but I would eat a mince pie now.” Kayleigh Syphas, Wendover: “No, I love it and can’t wait until Christmas. I decorated the house mid-November last year. I started shopping last week, it helps spread the cost. My mum stresses out at the last minute.” Vanessa Alvis, Hawkslade: “It’s too early, summer’s just ended. At the end of October the television adverts come on and the kids start whingeing about toys. I start shopping at the beginning of November.” Nicola Jarrott, Hawkslade: “I wouldn’t buy mince pies now. We haven’t had Halloween yet, there’s fireworks to come first. Even the cards in the shops are Christmas cards and you can’t get anything else.” Rebecca Miller, Aylesbury: “It’s depressing, especially for mothe ...

Arianna Huffington: Beyond Money and Power (and Stress and Burnout): In Search of a New Definition of Success
The Huffington Post - over 3 years
I'm happy to announce that next week, on June 6th, Mika Brzezinski and I will be co-hosting the Huffington Post's first-ever women's conference, "The Third Metric: Redefining Success Beyond Money & Power." As the title makes clear, the purpose is to discuss ways to come up with a new definition of what it means to be successful. Right now, the two metrics of success that drive the American workplace are money and power, but by themselves, they make a two-legged stool -- fine for balancing on for a short time, but after a while, you're headed for a fall. And guided by this limited definition of success, more and more "successful" people are falling. So what we need is a more humane and sustainable definition of success that includes well-being, wisdom, wonder, empathy, and the ability to give back. But how do we recalibrate our current benchmarks of success? That's what we'll be discussing. The conference is fully booked, but we would love you to be part of the larger co ...

Alaska suspect linked to Vermont killing, 5 others
Fox News - about 4 years
Israel Keyes, in jail for the killing of an Alaska barista, gradually began confessing to investigators that he had killed others: a couple in Vermont, four people in Washington state, someone in New York. But he was slow to come forward with details, warning investigators he would stop talking if his name was released publicly. "He was very, very, very sensitive to his reputation, as odd at that sounds," Anchorage Police Chief Mark Mew said. "We had to keep things extra quiet in order to keep him talking with us." Keyes committed suicide in an Alaska jailhouse Sunday, leaving behind an incomplete picture of a loner who traveled the country for more than a decade, picking victims at random and methodically killing them. Officials believe there are more victims in other states, but they may never know who they are. Authorities wouldn't say how Keyes killed himself, only that he was alone in his cell. They also did not say wheth ...

Alaska murder suspect linked to 7 other killings
Fox News - about 4 years
Investigators say a man found dead of an apparent suicide in an Alaska jail was not only suspected of killing an Anchorage barista but may be linked to seven other possible slayings around the country. Israel Keyes, who had also confessed to killing a Vermont couple, was found dead in his cell Sunday, authorities said at a news conference that included U.S. Attorney Karen Loeffler, the FBI, and Anchorage police. Keyes was facing a March trial in Anchorage federal court for the murder of 18-year-old Samantha Koenig, who was abducted from a coffee kiosk in the city last February. He was later arrested in Texas after using the victim's debit card. Anchorage police chief Mark Mew said Keyes confessed to killing Koenig, as well as killing Bill and Lorraine Currier of Essex, Vt. The bodies of the Curriers have never been found. They were last seen leaving their jobs on June 8, 2011. Co-workers reported them missing the next day. ...

Interview: Keanu Reeves on “the end of film”
Salon.com - over 4 years
Very often the second and third chapters of Hollywood careers are the most interesting, and that seems to be the case with Keanu Reeves in middle age. If his iconic science-fiction role as the universe-saving Neo in the “Matrix” trilogy marked the apex of Reeves’ career as a leading man – which went clear back to “River’s Edge” and the “Bill & Ted” movies in the late '80s – the conclusion of that series launched him onto a new and complicated trajectory. Most of his roles in the last decade have come in small independent projects, from Mike Mills’ “Thumbsucker” to Richard Linklater’s “A Scanner Darkly” to Rebecca Miller’s “Private Lives of Pippa Lee” and Malcolm Venville’s “Henry’s Crime” (which Reeves co-produced).

British Woman Chooses 161-Word Name
BBC Blogs- America - almost 5 years
Naming Names We’ll try to make this short. BBC News reports that Dawn McManus, a 41-year-old woman from Hartlepool, England, is legally changing her name to “Red Dreams” – but between that first and last name, she’ll have 159 additional middle names. A spokesman for the Legal Deed Poll Service, the UK’s official bureau for name changes, said, “We have processed a number of crazy name changes to date, but this is the longest one on record.” It may sound like a crazy name but Ms. Dreams chose it to help raise funds for the Red Dreams charity she set up after her son’s death. Her new 161-word name not only contains the charity’s title but also the names of people it has helped. McManus’s new full name is: Red Wacky League Antlez Broke the Stereo Neon Tide Bring Back Honesty Coalition Feedback Hand of Aces Keep Going Captain Let’s Pretend Lost State of Dance Paper Taxis Lunar Road Up Down Strange All and I Neon Sheep Eve Hornby Faye Bradley AJ Wilde Michael Rice Dion Watts Ma ...

Ms Dreams set for record books!
Hartlepool Mail - almost 5 years
A CHARITY champion hopes to enter the world record books after having her name officially changed - to one which is 161 words long! Dawn McManus, 41, vowed to change her name to encourage fundraising for her charity, Red Dreams, which was set up after the death of her 16-year-old son Kyle, who died in 2007. Talented arts student Kyle was struck down by a brain tumour, and his parents Dawn and Ian set up the Red Dreams charity in Whitby Street South in his memory in a bid to nurture similar youngsters with a passion for the arts. The couple have carried out dozens of fundraisers in that time to establish the charity, but Dawn has kept her promise to do something out of the ordinary by changing her name by deed poll. She believes her new name - including the charity’s name and people it has helped - could be the world’s longest. Dawn said: “Officially I should be called Red, but I appreciate some people will find it hard to embrace the change. “Ian will probably slip up and call me ...

Preserving kitchen memories
Roanoke.com - almost 5 years
GranniesKitchen/Flickr As Mother’s Day approaches, I wonder how many folks out there have kitchen utensils, gadgets, appliances, what-have-you that is a family heirloom? Do you? If so, what is it and do you use it or just store it as a keepsake? Happy foggy Monday to you all. At least we had a gorgeous day on Sunday to get outside and tinker in the garden. I cleaned up my herb garden and now have three trash bags full of rosemary from my monstrous rosemary bush. I’m going to donate a bunch of it to the RAM house – did you know they’d take donations of fresh herbs? Kitchen manager Linda Cannon said she’ll dry them and store them for future use. I can’t think of a better use for my monstrous rosemary bush. I got a neat cookbook the other day called “Sweet Home” by Rebecca Miller Ffrench. It includes a chapter about preserving family recipes. Here are her tips: 1. “Get your hands dirty and get digging.” she advises going into basements, attics and other storage spaces to look fo ...

Happy Birthday, Daniel Day-Lewis!
Popeater - almost 5 years
Happy birthday, Daniel Day-Lewis! The actor, hailed as one of the greatest of our time, celebrates his 55th today. Day-Lewis, son of Anglo-Irish poet laureate Cecil Day-Lewis and actress Jill Balcon, started working on the British stage after graduating from the Bristol Old Vic theatre school, which he chose to attend over an apprenticeship in carpentry, his competing passion during secondary school. He first garnered attention in film for his 1985 portrayal of Johnny, a gay man in an interracial relationship, in "My Beautiful Laundrette." He then played Cecil, the cultivated fiance of Helena Bonham Carter in the adaptation of the E.M. Forster novel "A Room With A View." The films premiered in New York simultaneously, wowing critics who hailed Day-Lewis' impressive range. Day-Lewis is known for his somewhat extreme preparation for his roles. For example, he spent two days and nights in a prison cell without food or water to prepare for the role of Gerry Conlon in "In the ...
