From Man Of The Year To Millions For Charity: What I Learned From My First Campaign (When I Was 12)
Huffington Post - 9 months
By Lou Cove The first million-dollar check I ever held was written by hand. It was donated to the organization I worked for at the time, and came in an envelope addressed to me. I told my staff to hold off on the champagne until the check cleared because, really, who handwrites million dollar checks? But the check cleared, the corks were popped, and so began the first in what would be a series of successful personal fundraising efforts—$70 million and counting—and countless more for clients I have advised. I recall sitting back in amazement, trying to put my finger on all the things we had done right to lead us to that transformative gift. Certainly, it was the product of months of hard work, but the seeds of that success—and the larger achievements of the campaigns that followed—were planted in an unconventional campaign many years ago, when I was just 12 years old. It was 1978. My parents had uprooted our family from New York City to Salem, Massachusetts. From Centra...

Huffington Post - 12 months
By Matt Sebra for GQ. The annual awards season red carpet slog marathon finally comes to an end at the Oscars and at this point, we've seen every spin on black tie dressing—or so we thought. This year's red carpet turned up twists on tuxedoes that celebrated formal menswear traditions and personal style, a mix that doesn't always yield successful results, but it did when we're talking about these guys. From Dev Patel's modern dinner jacket to Mahershala Ali's blackout tux, here are the most stylish guys at the 89th Academy Awards. Dev Patel in Burberry The Lion actor has aced everything from standard penguin suits to swervy navy tuxes this awards season, and this streamlined ivory dinner jacket feels like the perfect way to cap off Patel's successful red carpet run.

A-Sides with Jon Chattman: It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's Another Guy Making Oscar Predictions
Huffington Post - about 1 year
A week from today the nominations for the 89th Academy Awards will be announced, and I'd expect a few jaw-dropping omissions (Ryan Gosling?) and additions (Michael Keaton?) like every year. That said, I think we'll see less surprises this year than in years past (ie. La La will sing and dance to the tune of a lot of nods. I'll also say #oscarssowhite isn't going to happen this year.

Anyway, here I am writing down my Oscar predictions like everybody else in the world. Read on, and predict your own. Guess right on all, and win a pony!
