Posted on August 17, Views: Welcome to the world of Tony Robbins. Sure, critics have made fun of his omnipresent TV infomercials and QVC pitches, while some mental health professionals question the efficacy of rapid-fire transformation. But the king of life coaches dismisses skeptics, pointing to a record of proven results and impressive sales: Four million people have attended his seminars; 50 million have bought his books, tapes and DVDs. A self-made man who never went to college, Robbins was raised in a violent household by a volatile mother addicted to prescription drugs and alcohol. After she kicked him out of the house when he was 17, he worked as a door-to-door repairman.

But what made these shows so impressive, along with fellow travellers like the wildly unpredictable Top of the Lake: China Girl, was how they used gender as a starting point, crossing over into unexpected realms to illustrate the flaws of the world they were describing. At moments of dread-suffused stillness, The Handmaid’s Tale had a last-gasp black humour worthy of Get Krack! And there were moments in Get Krack!
ABC If those series comprised the defining movement of television in , only one show had the creative audacity and sustained vision to outrank them.
After all, dating is an emotional rollercoaster to begin with. Throw bipolar disorder into the mix and you’ve made the highs higher and the lows lower. It’s not impossible, and it can be incredibly loving and rewarding, but it can also be a real challenge.
I’ve been trying to understand the difference between literary fiction and genre for a long time. A member of my writers’ group used to bring in science fiction for critique sometimes, and sometimes her avant garde work. It was all meticulously written in her delightful, faux naif style, and we could never tell the difference between avant garde and science fiction, except that occasionally the science fiction had some very human aliens in it.
In fact, I believe the best fiction, whether literary or genre, has always combined powerful language with psychological and social insight and story. The way we separate genre and literature in the twenty-first century is, to my way of thinking, mostly about selling, and there is no doubt that writing in certain niches sells far better than others. I’ve been writing since I was about six years old, and in the beginning, I was above all interested in the stories.

The skirt length is Starfleet Regulation. It was short intentionally. I was dressed in a science officer costume from Star Trek: Not the sleek little work-appropriate but still sexy jewel tone tunics from the new movie, but the flared, strangely-constructed, unapologetically teal and chartreuse polyester cheerleader dresses that fit perfectly with the now retrofuturistic vibe of the original show. And at the beginning of the day, I just assumed the lady who commented was pointing out that I needed to tug down the dress a bit.
That was the first comment. After the next 30 or so, I had had enough. I was at Balticon, a great science fiction convention that leans more to the literary side than the ones that are normally in my wheelhouse. This was my second year going to this con, and my second year costuming there. Last year I brought several costumes, but only wore one: I wore that outfit for all of Saturday, became extremely annoyed with the response I was getting and then dressed in normal clothes on Sunday.
As a costumer, you have to develop a fairly keen sense for what is a safe space and what is not. I felt safe at Balticon both years. That said, the responses I was getting made me want to run away.

Asia Argento is shooting down speculation that she drove boyfriend Anthony Bourdain to commit suicide by cheating on him in her first interview since the famed chef’s death nearly four months ago. When we saw each other we took really great pleasure in each other’s company. But we are not children. They say I killed him. I understand that the world needs to find a reason.
I would like to find a reason, too.

No doubt today will be full of important and heartfelt testimonials to the man who hosted beloved food travel television shows “No Reservations” and “Parts Unknown,” penned some of the greatest food writing of his generation and championed, above all, the simple humanity of sharing a meal with others. But here, we’ve pulled together a collection of what might be considered the best writing about Bourdain — a man who was largely defined by his ability to offer his unvarnished, and often correct, opinion, but also by his willingness to publicly grapple with himself.
Aside from rewatching the entire runs of “No Reservations” and “Parts Unknown” there might be no better way to come to understand Tony than to read what some of the most seasoned food writers had to say about him. In , at the age of 43, Bourdain published a story in the New Yorker that would eventually lead him to where he is today. Gastronomy is the science of pain. Professional cooks belong to a secret society whose ancient rituals derive from the principles of stoicism in the face of humiliation, injury, fatigue, and the threat of illness.
The members of a tight, well-greased kitchen staff are a lot like a submarine crew.
Morality is not determined by the church you attend nor the faith you embrace. It is determined by the quality of your character and the positive impact you have on those you meet along your journey Monday, March 30, The more you know about Palin’s pick for Attorney General, Wayne Anthony Ross, the more often you have to fight the urge to vomit. I am giving full credit for this post to Pam’s House Blend and would like you to click the title to give her love for gathering all of these facts for us.
We did not expect her to pick a gay-friendly AG, however his blatant prejudice expressed in a public letter to the state Bar shows that he is a poor choice for our top attorney: Ross wrote a nasty letter to the Bar Association newsletter, using words like “immoral”, “perversion” and “degenerates.

Cleopatra by John William Waterhouse Mark Antony — one of the triumvirs of the Roman Republic, along with Octavius and Lepidus — has neglected his soldierly duties after being beguiled by Egypt’s Queen, Cleopatra. He ignores Rome’s domestic problems, including the fact that his third wife Fulvia rebelled against Octavius and then died. Octavius calls Antony back to Rome from Alexandria to help him fight against Sextus Pompey, Menecrates, and Menas, three notorious pirates of the Mediterranean.
At Alexandria, Cleopatra begs Antony not to go, and though he repeatedly affirms his deep passionate love for her, he eventually leaves. The triumvirs meet in Rome, where Antony and Octavius put to rest, for now, their disagreements. Octavius’ general, Agrippa, suggests that Antony should marry Octavius’s sister, Octavia, in order to cement the friendly bond between the two men. Antony’s lieutenant Enobarbus, though, knows that Octavia can never satisfy him after Cleopatra.
In a famous passage, he describes Cleopatra’s charms: In Egypt, Cleopatra learns of Antony’s marriage to Octavia and takes furious revenge upon the messenger that brings her the news. She grows content only when her courtiers assure her that Octavia is homely: Before battle, the triumvirs parley with Sextus Pompey, and offer him a truce. He can retain Sicily and Sardinia , but he must help them “rid the sea of pirates” and send them tributes.
After some hesitation Sextus agrees. They engage in a drunken celebration on Sextus’ galley, though the austere Octavius leaves early and sober from the party.

Yet these characteristics were united with the purest modesty and the warmest feminine affections. Ferdinand, her husband, was her inferior in mind, heart and nobility of character; but as a wife and a mother she seems to have been a more perfect model than of a queen. They were conducted in perfect good faith and a sincere desire on both sides to establish a cordial reconciliation.
Catharine of Russia bears honourable comparison with Peter the Great. The annals of Africa furnish no example of a monarch equal to the brave intelligent and proud hearted Zinga, the negro Queen of Angola. Blanche of Castile evinced great ability in administering the government of France, during the minority of her son, and similar praise is due to Caroline of England, during the absence of her Husband. In all great national difficulties her heart has always been found to beat in the right place.
She has ever been loyal to her country and her tyrants. He has said it and it must be right was the remark of Josephine in her happy days, when her own judgement suggested a change of course from the one marked out to her by Napoleon, but she lived long enough to learn that her tyrant might both do and say much that was not right. Her village politics by Will Chip, written in a few hours showed that she merited the opinion entertained of her power upon all classes of mind. It had as was expected great effect.
