Manchester United Replaces LVMH’s Hublot With Bulova as Partner
By Paul Jarvis -
2013-08-14T12:20:50Z

watches Manchester United, the world’s
second-richest sports franchise, signed a three-year sponsorship
deal with U.S. watchmaker Bulova, replacing LVMH Moet Hennessy
Louis Vuitton SA (MC) ’s Hublot as the club’s official timekeeper.


swiss watches The agreement allows Bulova, a unit of Japan ’s Citizen
Watch Co., to place its name on scoreboards at United’s Old
Trafford stadium and on advertising hoardings, the companies
said today in a statement. Bulova will also take over from
Hublot in producing timepieces using the club crest.


high quality replica watches for men Hublot, based in Nyon, Switzerland , had been the club’s
official timekeeping partner since 2008 when the parties signed
what they said at the time was a “multimillion-pound”
agreement. That deal expired at the end of June. Manchester
United spokeswoman Kate Lowe declined to comment today on the
value of the new partnership, which places Bulova alongside
existing sponsors including Aon Plc, Nike Inc. and DHL.


best swiss replica watches The soccer club , owned by the Glazer family, was impressed
by Bulova’s credentials, Lowe said. The New York-based watch
company was founded in 1875, three years before Manchester
United , and pioneered the fully electronic watch.


copy watches “Although from very different industries, Bulova and
Manchester United share many common values,” Manchester United
Managing Director Richard Arnold said in the statement. “We
have both grown to become global leaders in our fields.”


high quality swiss replica watches A Hublot clock that was installed in a tower at the
entrance to Old Trafford has been removed, Lowe said. LVMH
didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.


Manchester United is worth $3.2 billion, according to the
Forbes list of the world’s most valuable sports teams, published
in July. That places the franchise second only to Spanish soccer
club Real Madrid, valued at $3.3 billion.

What to Watch at the U.S. Open on Tuesday
By ARON PILHOFER
Ronald Martinez/Getty Images Jerzy Janowicz, above, will take on Maximo González in the first round.

omega watches At just 22 and seeded No. 14 at the United States Open, Jerzy Janowicz may be the most exciting — and excitable — newcomer to men’s tennis.


copy watch At 6 feet 8 inches, he generates plenty of power, has good feel at the net and possesses one of the biggest serves in the game. And for a bigger guy, he is surprisingly quick. His undoing is often himself. Janowicz has been known to melt down on the court.


copy omega watches He has a favorable draw and he is playing a qualifier, Máximo González, in the first round. González is a clay-court specialist who will keep balls in play, but Janowicz is a better player and should be able to move through. If he can keep his temper under control, Janowicz is my dark horse pick to go deep into the second week.


watches sale Adrian Ungur vs. Gaël Monfils Monfils plays every point as if it is his last, running, jumping, throwing his body around the court. Not surprisingly, that go-for-broke style has caught up with Monfils, a 26-year-old Frenchman who has struggled with injuries over the past two years. He needed a wild card to get into the French Open this year, but returned the gift by beating Tomas Berdych and Ernests Gulbis before losing in the third round. Leading to the Open, he made the final at Winston-Salem before retiring with a pulled muscle. If he’s healthy, Monfils is capable of an upset or two.


cheap watches Julia Görges vs. Christina McHale Among the cadre of young United States women, McHale has by far the most mature game. She is a smart competitor and underrated mover who makes up for not having raw power by using patience, precision and a variety of shots. That combination took her to four consecutive third-round Grand Slam appearances until mononucleosis derailed her late last year.


omegawatches Lukasz Kubot vs. Jarkko Nieminen This is one of those matchups that make the early rounds great: two evenly matched players who play very different styles. Few have squeezed more out their game than Nieminen, a soft-hitting Finn whose results match his playing style: consistent. He has spent the better part of a decade hovering inside the top 50, and, at 32, here he is again. Kubot, from Poland, is a bit of a late bloomer whose all-court game got him to a quarterfinals matchup at Wimbledon with his countryman Janowicz this year — by far his best Grand Slam result as a professional.


João Sousa vs. Grigor Dimitrov After a successful junior career and a couple of years of mixed results as a pro, Dimitrov is starting to figure things out. The young Bulgarian comes into the Open seeded for the first time. His 2013 started with a surprise run to the finals in Brisbane, beating Milos Raonic, Jurgen Melzer and Marcos Baghdatis before losing to Andy Murray. Since then, he has notched wins against the likes of Janko Tipsarevic, Sam Querrey and even Novak Djokovic. Dimitrov is a smooth mover who is comfortable winning points at the baseline or the net. His backhand is one of the prettiest shots on tour. Sousa, the Portuguese No. 1, is a good young player in his own right, and should make this an entertaining first-round match.


Sergiy Stakhovsky vs. Jeremy Chardy The talented Stakhovsky’s results have fallen off since 2010 when he made it to the third round here. But the Ukrainian is still capable of some great all-court tennis, as evidenced by his stunning upset of Roger Federer at Wimbledon. Chardy is having his best year as a pro, cracking the top 25 and reaching his first Grand Slam quarterfinal at the Australian Open.


Other Matches of Note
Jack Sock vs. Philipp Petzschner Sock is the big-hitting American in the early Andy Roddick mold: big serve, bigger forehand. He has had his best success as a pro here, making the third round last year.


Heather Watson vs. Simona Halep Halep is on a roll, winning four titles this year and coming into the Open seeded No. 21. Laura Robson gets all the notice in England, but Watson is a good player.


Tommy Haas vs. Paul-Henri Mathieu At 35, Haas can still play with the best of them — especially on hardcourts, on which he beat Novak Djokovic, Gilles Simon and John Isner this year.

Tiffany & Co shares rise as Q2 profit beats, outlook improved
Tue 9:36 am by Deborah Bacal
For the quarter that ended July 31, the New York, New York-based luxury jewelry retailer reported net earnings of $107 million, or 83 cents per share, up from $92 million, or 72 cents a share, in the same period last year.

tiffany Tiffany & Co. ( NYSE:TIF ) shares rose in early deals on Tuesday after reporting an improved full year earnings outlook and a better-than-expected second quarter profit. 


tiffany and co For the quarter that ended July 31, the New York, New York-based luxury jewelry retailer reported net earnings of $107 million, or 83 cents per share, up from $92 million, or 72 cents a share, in the same period last year. 


tiffany co Net sales worldwide climbed 4 per cent to $926 million, or 8 per cent when excluding the effect of translating foreign currency-denominated sales into U.S. dollars. Comparable store sales rose 5 per cent, as growth was seen in most markets. 


tiffany and co Analysts had expected earnings of 74 cents a share on revenue of $941.5 million, according to FactSet.


tiffany “Total sales growth met our objective due to solid performance in most regions, and with particular strength in our statement and fine jewelry product categories," said chairman and CEO Michael J. Kowalski in a statement Tuesday. 


cheap tiffany "We were pleased with the results of our efforts to improve gross margin which, combined with well-controlled expenses, yielded a solid increase in operating margin.”


Indeed, gross margin in the quarter increased to 57.5 per cent in the second quarter from 56.3 per cent a year ago, benefitting from diminishing product cost pressure and prices increases taken earlier in the year, the company said. 


Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 3 per cent in the second quarter, due to store-related costs and higher marketing spend, partly mitigated by the translation effect from a stronger U.S. dollar. 


In the Americas region, total sales increased 2 per cent to $444 million in the quarter, while comparable store sales were unchanged. The company saw sharp growth in the Asia-Pacific region, however, as total sales rose 20 per cent to $208 million, while same store sales increased 13 per cent in the area, led by strong sales in greater China. 


Business in Japan was impacted by a negative translation effect from a substantially weaker yen, causing total sales to decline 14 per cent to $136 million, but on a constant exchange rate basis, sales actually increased 7 per cent during the latest period as same store sales grew 8 per cent. 


Even sales in Europe rose 11 per cent to $111 million, with comparable sales up 7 per cent due to sales growth in the U.K. and most of continental Europe, Tiffany said. Other sales increased 33 per cent to $26 million, reflecting the conversion of five stores in the United Arab Emirates from independently operated to company-operated. 


As a result of the better-than-anticipated quarterly results, management now forecasts net earnings in the range of $3.50 to $3.60 a share for the year ending January 31, 2014, compared with its previous forecast of $3.43 to $3.53 a share, and $3.25 per share in fiscal 2012. The improved forecast is based on the assumption that worldwide net sales will increase by a mid-single digit percentage in U.S. dollars. 


“Looking forward, we are equally excited about the initiatives we are pursuing in product development, marketing communications and store expansion, all intended to further enhance Tiffany’s strong brand position and take fuller advantage of its long-term growth opportunities in the global luxury market," said Kowalski. 


The company, which held $490 million in cash and equivalents at quarter-end, also opened three stores in the second quarter, in Hong Kong, Italy and Mexico, and closed one in Japan. At the end of July, it operated 277 stores. 


Shares of Tiffany & Co. climbed 1.1 per cent in morning trade on Tuesday, to $82.55.

Stil und Mode als Lebenselixier
Chic galt lange als verdächtig. Heute ist Lifestyle selbstverständlich und "weiche" Themen sind salonfähig. Diese Entwicklung spiegelt sich auch und gerade in Sonntagszeitungen wider. Von Inga Griese

"Frauen und Gedöns." Mehr Machismo als Ironie lag in dieser Beschreibung eines ehemaligen, recht selbstbegeisterten Bundeskanzlers. Er meinte damit das Ministerium für Frauen und Familie.

Heute würde er wohl nicht mehr so abfällig darüber sprechen. Die Zeiten haben sich geändert. Das Weibliche ist nicht nur in coolen Männern wie David Beckham auf dem Vormarsch, sondern in allen Lebensbereichen.

Auch wenn sich an der berühmten gläsernen Decke noch jede Menge rosa Blutflecke finden lassen, die weibliche Trotzköpfe dort hinterlassen, und in Sachen Gleichbehandlung (nicht zu verwechseln mit Gleichmacherei) noch Einiges im Argen liegt, so schreitet die Feminisierung unserer Gesellschaft doch voran. Jedenfalls im privilegierten Einzugsgebiet der "Welt am Sonntag".

Klischees auf dem Rückzug

moncler jacket sale
Die Frauensache geht allerdings nicht mit den handelsüblichen Klischees einher. Sondern so vielfältig wie Frauen sind, getreu dem Motto: Ich bin ich und das sind viele. Und das bedeutet: die einen sind die Merkels, die anderen die von der Leyens, die nächsten Alice Schwarzer oder Dagmar Berghoff oder Cindy aus Marzahn oder die Katzenbergers oder meine Nachbarin oder von jeder etwas oder gar nichts.

cheap moncler jackets
Über Männer sagte eine lebenskluge Freundin einmal trocken: "Kennst Du einen, kennst Du alle." Keine Sorge, das war natürlich nur halbernst gemeint – aber eben auch halbwahr.


Frauen sind viel komplizierter. Und da wären wir auch schon beim eigentlichen Thema: nämlich der Emotion, die weiblich ist. "Der" im vorangegangenen Satz ist allein der Grammatik geschuldet, aber natürlich auch schon wieder vielsagend zu deuten. Es hört gar nicht auf, wenn man mit dem Ying und Yang erst einmal anfängt. Heißt es doch zum Beispiel auch der Lifestyle? Und das Weiche.


Entweder man ist intelligent…


Oha! Weiche Themen, denen ging es in der Zeitung lange wie dem "Gedöns". Zusätzlich, nicht wirklich wichtig, vor allem: nicht ernst genommen. Sogenannte "Kann sein – muss nicht"-Angelegenheiten. Politik, Wirtschaft, das war die Macht. Ruhig noch Sport, klar. Soll heißen: Fußball.


…oder man interessiert sich für Mode


Als ich journalistisch sozialisiert wurde Anfang der 1980er-Jahre, galt in unserem Land noch die Haltung: Man ist entweder intelligent oder interessiert sich für Mode. Chic war geradezu verdächtig.


Schmuddelig war eine Art Geisteshaltung im erbitterten Kampf gegen die Spießigkeit der Nachkriegsjahre. Manieren galten als Sekundärtugenden. Höchstens.


Noch in den 2000er-Jahren hatten wir lieber einen Parlamentspräsidenten mit Yeti-Bart als einen Minister mit Gel im Haar. Frauen, die sich halbwegs smart anzogen, wurden gleich zu Miss Bundestag. Hoppla! Und der Gedöns-Kanzler war politisch fast nackt in seinem Brioni -Mantel.


Heute erklärt uns im Fernsehen leider nicht mehr Antonia Hilke ruhig und sachverständig "Neues vom Kleidermarkt" sondern ein bizarrer Harald Glööckler, wie man sich stylt. Das ist natürlich auch keine Lösung. Aber ein Indiz. Denn Lifestyle ist nun immer. Wie bio. Oder öko. Oder Landhausfeeling. Man muss zu unterscheiden wissen.


Menge, Namen, Verfügbarkeit borden über


Es gab schon immer eine Art, sich zu kleiden, sich einzurichten und damit Auskunft zu geben – über das jeweilige Lebensgefühl, beziehungsweise den gesellschaftlichen Status. Das Prinzip hat sich nicht verändert, nur die Menge, die Namen, die Verfügbarkeit.


Ich war bereits 14 Jahre alt, als ich meine erste Cordhose bekam. Gefühlt die letzte in der Klasse. Braun, Feincord, mit passendem braunen Patentstrick-Synthetikpullover sowie passendem (!) orangefarbenen Pullover.


Bis dahin trug ich Lederhosen. Kurze im Sommer, knielange mit Wollstrümpfen im Winter. In Norddeutschland… Wie es soweit kommen konnte, lässt sich nicht mehr klären.


Babys in Designerdaune


Dabei hatte ich angeblich schon als Kleinkind für Eindruck und Furore gesorgt, als ich im örtlichen Einkleidungsgeschäft zu einer Pepitahose einen gelben Pullover verlangte. Zu Ostern nähte eine Schneiderin für uns drei Schwestern identische "Osterkleider". Für gut. Heute dürfen schon Babys Daunenjacken von Moncler tragen.


Wir verbrachten die Sommer auf Sylt , sechs Wochen. Nach drei Wochen gab es ein frisches Strandhandtuch. Kurz bevor man zusammenbrach, weil das Salzwasser und der Sand das Frottee in Betonfrottee verwandelt hatte. Manchmal kochte unsere Mutter in der Ferienküche im Schnellkochtopf Unterhosen und Blüschen durch.


Marke, Marke, Marke


Wir fahren immer noch nach Sylt. Aber heute werfen wir die Handtücher gern mal schnell in die Maschine, wenn wir vom Strand kommen. Früher hatten wir Pullover an, heute tragen wir Iris von Arnim oder Brunello Cucinelli . Also Marken. Und möglichst Kaschmir.


Brunello Früher rührten wir Nescafé-Pulver in selbstgetöpferte Becher und kippten Bärenmarke dazu, heute stellen wir den Dibbern-Mug in die Nespresso-Maschine und drücken den Cappuccino-Knopf.


Den Kanzler würden wir nicht mehr fragen, warum er einen Brioni-Mantel trägt, sondern ob er einen guten Tipp hat, wo man so einen bekommt.


Sein darf, was sein kann


Gleichwohl scheinen wir noch immer zwischen Bewunderung für eine elegante, singende (ehemalige) First Lady aus Frankreich und deutscher Oberflächlichkeits-Häme zu schwanken. Aber auch diese historisch begründbare Haltung geht allmählich in Rente. Wenn es nicht gerade um Politiker geht, darf sein, was sein kann. Das Problem heute liegt eher darin, sich zurechtzufinden, sich zu orientieren.


Schon die schiere Menge an Informationen, Produkten, Möglichkeiten überfordert. Wir legen vermehrt wert auf Äußeres. Wert ist ruhig wörtlich zu nehmen. Aber oberflächlich sind wir deswegen nicht.


Lifestyle ist ein Gefühl


Denn das, was sich unter dem Begriff Lifestyle subsumiert, ist eben nicht nur Käse und Rotwein in der Toskana, sondern ein Gefühl. Und das geht, wie eine gute Creme, tatsächlich unter die Haut.


Nach Jahrzehnten ohne Schulung will Stil erst wieder gelernt und auch neu gelehrt werden. Nicht alle alten Regeln machen noch Sinn. Doch an wem orientiert man sich? Zu welcher Peergroup möchte man gehören? Will ich meine eigene sein? Wer bestimmt, was meine wichtigen Themen sind?


Was wahrer Luxus bedeutet


Luxus hat sich demokratisiert, wahrer Luxus hingegen ist nicht billiger Konsum. Wir wissen viel, bekommen mehr Informationen als wir verkraften können, wollen vertrauen und fühlen.


Die Seele muss ausruhen. Sich in weiche Themen kuscheln. Genau diese Entwicklung spiegelt sich auch in der Sonntagszeitung wider.

The Newsroom Recap: Clock Blocked
by
Kimberly Roots

Get More: Recaps

watches In this week’s episode of The Newsroom , ACN’s Operation Genoa story falls apart like me during the last 15 minutes of Beaches . A bunch of questions are answered, at least one opportunity (in my opinion) is missed and three News Night ers throw themselves on their journalistic swords to save the reputation of the network. Let’s assume crash positions as we review the epic – I’m sorry, “institutional” – failure that goes down in “Red Team III.”


swiss replica watches aaa+ RELATED |   True Blood  End Date ‘Conversation Is Happening — Should Season 7 Be the Show’s Last?


fake watches DON CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH | Most of the key players spend some time in the episode being interrogated by ACN lawyer Rebecca; Don goes first. He rails against the stupidity of ACN having to prepare for the worst just because Jerry Dantana is angry he got fired. Rebecca counters that, although Jerry certainly doctored the tape, the matter is a bit more nuanced than Don would like to admit. Jerry’s “claim is, he’s a scapegoat,” she says coolly. “I understand why he’d feel that way, because it was entirely his fault,” Don shoots back. (Heh.)


best swiss replica watches But the truth of it is that there were several problems that should’ve gotten caught but didn’t during the three Red Team meetings, and a flashback brings us into the third one. We learn that MacKenzie interviewed the previously assumed-dead Herman Valenzuela, who backed up what the News Night team had already learned: Operation Genoa was an extraction to recover captured American military personnel, and in it, the U.S. Armed Forces used chemical weapons on civilians. This is the first meeting for which Will has been present, and his face is blank as Jerry & Co. review their sources and the facts – we find out his non-reaction is because “I heard the same story,” he tells them. (Though, as Rebecca points out, no one thought to ask Will if his reliable, in-a-position-to-know source was the same as Charlie’s. Oops.)


high quality swiss replica watches Charlie, Mac and Jerry want to run with the story. Don thinks airing it will put soldiers’ lives in heightened danger, and Jim says it just doesn’t feel right. “Eleven months of reporting versus your gut, I’ll take the reporting,” Jerry says peevishly. “I’d take Jim’s gut,” Sloan pipes up, and Neal concurs. (That’s sweet, guys, but Jim’s not infallible. Remember, he did give away an interview with a presidential candidate to a pretty face a few months back… though, in that case, his gut probably wasn’t the body part calling the shots.) Harper and Dantana argue — Jerry says Jim fetishizes the military, Jim says he doesn’t know Jerry and therefore can’t be certain about his judgment — until Will makes the ultimate call: “I trust Charlie and Mac.” The broadcast is a go!


best replica watches ACN REPORTS | The special airs live, with all of the staff nervously watching. Everything seems fine until Charlie gets a call from a livid Gen. Stomtonovich, who strenuously asserts that he never said that the U.S. used sarin. “It’s on film,” Mac replies when she, Will and Charlie discuss the matter, but she volunteers to check the raw tape once more. Though the call rattles them all a little, Will and Mac still manage to have a seemingly innocuous conversation about shot clocks vs. game clocks as he watches a college football game. If you’re thinking Mac’s about to figure out what Jerry did to the tape… you’ve got to wait a while.


The next morning brings news both good (the special netted 5.8 million viewers, “That’s an I Love Lucy number!” Will cries gleefully) and troubling (the Department of Defense sends News Night an email that involves the phrases “legal remedies” and “Espionage Act”). That’s so not good. Still, everyone stands by the story… until Elliott interviews the former gunnery sargeant involved in Genoa on his show later that night.


During Elliott’s broadcast, Sloan and Don banter it up in the control room. I loved her assertion that she’d “thrive” in jail because she’d “do everybody’s taxes and invest the warden’s money. What are you gonna do? Produce their nightly news show?” but then things get a little fuzzy – probably because I blacked out for a moment after being hit over the head so hard with the “and sometimes boys are vague with their messages” line. (Side note: This season isn’t going to end with another Sloan-and-Don near miss, is it?)


The flirting is interrupted, though, as the vet slips on-air and says he incurred a traumatic brain injury while on duty. It’s an injury he’d lied about to the News Night team – and one that often causes memory loss, which could mean that he’s not as rock-solid on those Genoa facts as he originally seemed. Don urges Elliott to bail out of the interview, and they quickly go to commercial. Not long after, a late night emergency staff meeting is called.


During the tense powwow, everyone (but Jerry) learns that Maggie wasn’t in the room during the Stomtonovich interview. Cue the journalistic outrage! Charlie and his eyebrows subdue everyone into silence, telling those assembled to chill out – leading to this awesome exchange:


WILL: How much of what you’re saying do you believe right now?
CHARLIE: 60 percent
WILL: I thought it was in the mid-80s. You pulled it off.
CHARLIE: [ with the most amazing look on his face ] Experience.


Mac later realizes that Herman Valenzuela isn’t as solid a source as he originally seemed, either; in his interview, which she conducted, he didn’t state one original fact – he just backed up what Stomtonovich and Sweeney said. The next day, Charlie goes to D.C. to talk to his “Deep Throat.” And that’s when things get really bad.


A FATHER’S REVENGE | Charlie has lots of questions for the man who brought him the helicopter manifest, but that man first wants to show off some pictures of his son, David. There’s David on his first day of college, on his first day as an ACN intern, on his first day home from rehab (I don’t like where this is going…) and at his funeral. What?


Apparently, the source’s kid was hired at the network on his 90th day of sobriety from a heroin addiction but was fired, and that firing was part of a downward spiral that ultimately killed him. The grieving father is mad that Charlie didn’t step in to stop the dismissal, and therefore… ACN’s Operation Genoa story became a thing. (Side note: From the way the men talk about it, I was thinking that the intern was somehow involved in the Internet death threat hoax aimed at Will last season. What a good way to wrap in that plot point, I thought. But, nope. The kid just posted about how he didn’t like News Night , and Neal let him go because of it. Missed opportunity, no?) When Charlie states that David “deserved to be fired,” the source slaps him and suggests he hold the very fake manifest over a lightbulb for 20 seconds, Nancy Drew-style – which reveals a nasty message (aimed at Charlie) that would make Ned Nickerson blush.


TIME’S UP | Meanwhile, back in New York, the news division is getting the first word about the storming of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and the consulate in Benghazi. It’s not too crazy, though, for one of the control-room guys to bring a segment countdown clock into the newsroom to show Mac. I assume he did so because the giant, flashing neon arrow pointing to Jerry’s deceit was being used by someone else? Something in the petite EP’s mind clicks, and we next see her reviewing Stomtonovich’s interview once more – and paying particular interest to the corner of the basketball game on the TV behind the general…


“You forgot the shot clock,” she says when she sees Jerry exiting the elevator, then pushes him back in and closes the door behind them. Mac is so mad she can’t look directly at the fill-in producer, so they both stare ahead as she tells him the clock on the tape goes from 19 to 3 to 2 to 14. He’s screwed, and he knows it, but he tries to rationalize anyway. “I wouldn’t have done this on any other story, and I wouldn’t have done it unless I was sure!” he says, voice rising. Mac shouts that “No one!” is ever going to believe them again, and he says he needs a lawyer. “You’re fired,” she calls out as he departs. “I know,” he says resignedly.


Upstairs, Mac finds all of the staff in Will’s office. They’re buzzing about a source who says that what happened in Benghazi was a coordinated attack, but they fall silent when she enters with tears in her eyes and says, “We have to retract Genoa tonight. All of it.” Want a visual punch to the gut? Watch Jeff Daniels’ face in this scene. Good stuff.


FAKE NEWS FALLOUT |  As Will tells Rebecca & Co., News Night ‘s top story that evening was the retraction. “We just stopped being good.” And so, after he reports on the following night’s election (it’s obviously November 5, 2012), he’s going to resign. He makes his way up to the executive level, where he, Charlie and Mac await Leona’s arrival from some swanky fundraiser. When the big boss lady does show up, she’s lamenting the fact that she paid $1,000 to see Skyfall at a benefit. “You know why? To meet Daniel Craig,” she says. (Lady, a grand to set eyes upon those steely peepers and that chiseled jaw in person? You got a bargain.) But Hurricane Sandy aftermath kept Craig from appearing. Boo.


Anyway, Leona swans around the room in an awesome black gown and refuses the trio’s resignations. “You will resign when I fire you out of petty malice and not before,” she states. (Ha!) Right after she uses the vernacular “hizzy,” Charlie wonders out loud what I’ve been thinking since she entered: “Leona, are you stoned?” She’s not high, Charlie, but she’s also not going to let Jerry take home a $5 million settlement just to make the network’s problem go away. Rebecca enters and tells Leona not to let them go, and the ladies’ back-and-forth implies a friendship that goes beyond the network. (To be a fly on the wall on one of those girls’ nights!) The entire scene feels like a fever dream – in the best way possible – but Charlie is determined to have some normalcy. “Leona, we don’t have the trust of the public anymore!” he bellows. “Get it back!” she shouts. And… roll credits!


Now it’s your turn. What did you think of the episode? Sound off in the comments!

Shinola, which takes its name from the resurrected shoe polish brand, is a relatively young company that specializes in bicycles, watches and leather goods, many of which are made in Detroit, or at least assembled in Detroit. If you want to know just how Detroit Shinola is, turn to its Web site, with its loving portraits of workers in its new factory, and its flowery odes to local artisanship.

Buying something made in Detroit, in this calculus, is not much different than buying a fair trade Andean sweater. You’re buying a small piece of the revival of a great American manufacturing city gone to seed. Or at least, you’re buying into the liberal idea of what supporting a distressed economy means.


Shinola’s New York store opened just a few days after Detroit filed for bankruptcy, and a couple of days before the company declared, on its Twitter feed: “Bankruptcy, shmankruptcy. We have a lot of job openings here in #Detroit. Come join our team!”


Shmankruptcy, indeed. Would it cramp your ideals to know that the company behind Shinola, Bedrock Brands, was started by a founder of the Fossil brand of watches, Tom Kartsotis, and also invests in Steven Alan, among other retail brands? In essence, that makes Mr. Kartsotis a midprice watch mogul looking to go luxury under the cover of charitable business practices.


Last year, Crain’s Detroit Business reported that Mr. Kartsotis commissioned a study in which people were asked if they preferred pens made in China that cost $5, the United States at $10 or Detroit at $15, and when offered the Detroit option, they chose it regardless of the higher price. And so a luxury brand was born.


There isn’t anything scrappy about Shinola, but you couldn’t possibly know from walking into its impressively spacious storefront that the building was purchased by Bedrock for $14.5 million in 2011 . For a new company, it is a splashy way to launch. For a new company that preaches the modest values of local craftsmanship, it is a bit of a bait and switch.


The bikes are pretty, though. There are two styles: the Bixby ($1,950), which looks meant for riding quietly in the bike lane, and the Runwell ($2,950), which looks more likely to be used cutting off cars in traffic. They’re available for test rides, provided you sign a waiver, and think these are great prices for bikes. In a video on the Shinola Web site, you can watch the frames being made in Wisconsin at a company owned by a member of the Schwinn family, an act that’s more nourishing and also cheaper.


AND THEN THERE ARE the watches, which are assembled in Detroit; again, videos on the site tell a love story about the technicians who trained the Detroit locals who now do the assembly work. The watches themselves (which mainly run between $500 and $700) have a stoic, mournful grace to them, suggesting timepieces of six decades ago, or public school wall clocks.


It is perhaps unfair to note that some of the less attractive ones, with square faces, or with outsize numbers on the face, are reminiscent of Fossil. They look like watches made by a manufacturing company, not watches made by a design company. As if to drive home the point, the store is also selling an extremely handsome vintage Rolex ($5,900), which is probably giving the Shinola watches in nearby cases an inferiority complex.


Off in a corner, near some Dan Flavin and Sol LeWitt books, is a selection of sturdy-looking Shinola writing journals, and sprinkled throughout the store are Shinola’s leather products: MacBook sleeves, totes, purses, etc., each branded with a unique serial number, even the small items, which is aesthetically jarring. (And yes, there is Shinola shoe polish, at $15.)


But maybe only half the store is stocked with Shinola product — the company’s ambition outstrips its production for now. The rest of the space is at least partly filled out in partnership with Hickoree’s, the nouveau-Americana store in Williamsburg. There are Hickoree’s napkins and picnic blankets, small bags by Kletterwerks, oxford shirts by Gitman Bros. and more, all of which make the store more diverse than the brand. In the front of the store is a cafe and newsstand run by the Smile; the guy behind the counter looked lonely.


In the front window was a bike, standing proud. As I left, a woman was taking a picture with her phone of her woven purse sitting on a bench outside the window. She was probably planning to post it to Instagram, and hashtag it #MadeInDetroit. Doing her part, I suppose.


Shinola


177 Franklin Street, (917) 728-3000; shinola.com .


Carpetbagging Shinola is a self-described luxury brand animated by do-gooder impulses, taking the conceit of “Made in Detroit” and squeezing every last retail penny from it.


Manufacturing Shinola aspires to make only a handful of products, and well. The goods are utilitarian in design, and mostly in categories where engineering matters.


Indoctrination The space is high-ceilinged and approachable, with friendly staff members offering history lessons on the brand or test rides of the bicycles.

(PRWEB UK) 19 August 2013

watches Luxury automatic watch retailer, Watches & Winders, is adding a new string to its bow - in the form of luxury pens. Watches and luxury pens enjoy a synergy: both are traditional, stylish and a vital accessory for the busy man or woman.


swiss replica watches Watches & Winders combine good, old-fashioned retail values, such as expertise and a high level of customer service, with the convenience that the modern shopper has come to expect. As part of their commitment to this successful formula they are always looking for new ways in which to improve customer experience - as a result, the introduction of writing instruments aims to provide exactly that.


cheap watches Their loyal customer base has grown to appreciate Watch & Winders’ knowledge and understanding of the automatic watch winders market and, conversely, the retailer has come to understand the nature of their customers. They know that those who choose Watch & Winders are meticulous about sourcing high quality goods, and that they pay the right price for them. They want the finer things in life and are willing to pay the price for that whilst remaining savvy consumers.


all brand watches Now they can choose a luxury pen in addition to having their watch needs met. Though emails abound, the right pen still makes an impression – in the boardroom or a business meeting. A go-to pen also provides comfort through familiarity. Like watches, a good pen makes a statement about its owner and now stylish consumers can find both in one place. Like the watches and watch winders before them Watches and Winders will only stock the most reputable of brands for their pens.

GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Strengthening winds on a wildfire in the Columbia Gorge on Thursday prompted fire bosses to order more scattered rural homes evacuated in rugged canyonlands on the northern flank of Mount Hood.

The Blackburn fire, part of the Government Flat complex burning 10 miles southwest of The Dalles, remained at 15 percent containment after growing to 17 square miles and burning a fourth house on Wednesday.

The Oregon Department of Forestry said residents of an unknown number of homes along Ketchum Road and Vensel Road were given the word to leave shortly after noon on Thursday. A total of about 275 homes have been given evacuation notices or notices to prepare for evacuation.

Forestry spokesman David Morman said Thursday night that winds that were projected to pick up in the afternoon remained relatively tame, allowing crews to strengthen their positions. However, stronger winds are expected for Friday afternoon.



Meanwhile, thunderstorms moved into southwestern Oregon on Thursday morning, bringing heavy rain and lightning. Five new fires were reported from dry lighting on the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest, with the biggest about 20 acres. More lightning was forecast through Friday, said forest spokeswoman Virginia Gibbons.



Nine large fires were burning uncontained across 288 square miles in Oregon, from the Big Sheep 2 fire outside Joseph in the northeastern corner, to the Labrador fire outside Selma in the southwest. There were 4,500 firefighters fighting the fires.



The Douglas Complex was 83 percent contained at 76 square miles outside Glendale. The threat to local homes has been lifted.



The Labrador fire continued to creep uncontained through the Kalmiopsis Wilderness along the Illinois River outside Selma. It has burned through 3.2 square miles.



The Whiskey Complex was 80 percent contained at 27 square miles outside Tiller.



In the Rogue River Canyon, the Big Whiskey Complex was 30 percent contained at 37 square miles. Whitewater rafters continued to float through the canyon, but forest roads used to shuttle rafter vehicles were closed.



The Big Sheep 2 fire was 55 percent contained at 129 acres.

Das Sylter Hoch ist noch nicht zu Ende
Von Inga Griese

moncler
Wahrscheinlich ist es ganz gut, dass ich einen robusten Kombi fahre, der einiges an Gewicht aushält – so besonders schwer war mein Herz, als ich abfahren musste. Nach einer Kurve hatte ich schon Heimweh. Warum heißt es eigentlich, dass man aufhören soll, wenn es am schönsten ist? Die Wärme und Wohligkeit dieses wunderbaren Sommers werden meine Bronchien und ich nicht so schnell vergessen. Uns allen war schon klar, als wir noch auf der Insel waren, welch Glück und Privileg wir hatten, jedoch wenige Tage in der Großstadt potenzieren diesen Eindruck noch, wie vermisse ich die Brandung, die Luft, die stillen guten Morgende, die Sommerfreunde. Die Familie konnte noch bleiben, doch nun muss auch sie packen, während ich dies schreibe und ruft an: Wo ist dies, wo ist das, wo soll die Flagge hin? Kirschbäume sind gepflanzt, Kübel noch einmal gründlich gewässert, neue Hakenleiste in der Garage angebracht, Trockner mit den Handtüchern läuft, die neuen Vorräte an Erdbeermarmelade (in Insiderkreisen Mamilade genannt) sind im Kühlschrank verstaut, die Stühle zum Aufarbeiten zu Mylin gebracht. Noch was? Ich bin gerührt über die hilfsbereite Sippe und ahne, wie sie sich fühlen wird, wenn die Abreise-Hektik der Wahrheit auf dem Autozug weicht. Wir reisen ja nie ganz ab, Sylt ist für uns ganzjähriger Seelenort, aber nach dem Sommer und besonders nach diesem Sommer, fällt die Rückkehr ins wahre Leben besonders schwer. Zumal die Frage mitfährt, was ist eigentlich das wahre Leben?

Wie die Hortensien, die nun plötzlich, nachdem wir schon dachten, wird nix dieses Jahr, erblühen, als gelte es, die Bundesgartenschau zu gewinnen. Sie haben sich schwer getan nach dem sturen Winter und dem ewig kalten Frühjahr. Aber nun wollen sie in ihrer Explosionskraft offenbar den anderen Inselpflanzen nicht nachstehen. Und auch nicht dem Riesenhummer, den Björn vom Rauchfang neulich aus dänischem Wildfang geliefert bekam.

moncler womens jackets
Es ist überhaupt rappelvoll, späte Ferien in Nordrhein-Westfalen machen sich bemerkbar, die Nordmenschen sind fort, andere Dialekte und Stylings haben übernommen. Die Kassen klingeln wieder. Nicht nur im Outlet gleich am Ortseingang von Westerland, wo man beste Kaschmirprodukte von Loro Piana, Malo, Bogner oder Agnona in großer Auswahl schnappen kann, allenthalben erhellen sich die Gemüter der Geschäftsleute, und beim Late-Night-Shopping in Kampen am Donnerstagabend klingelten nicht nur Goldarmreifen. Es gibt schon gute Gründe, warum "Matchless" den ersten deutschen Laden überhaupt in Kampen eröffnet hat. So mancher wunderte sich vielleicht über den "Motorradfahrer-Ausstatter" in bester und sehr großer Lage (ehemals Ingrid Homberg), aber die Mailänder sind auf dem besten Weg, auf ihrer Tradition eine Lifestyle-Marke zu errichten. Neuen Stil bringt auch Michael Meyer, der nicht länger "nur" als Franchise-Nehmer Sucht- und Wohlfühlmarken wie Bottega Veneta, Brunello Cucinelli, Moncler, Burberry, Pomelato verkauft, sondern nun am Strönwai unter seinem eigenen Namen neben Tods und Louis Vuitton eine coole Boutique eröffnet hat, in der es die hippen Franzosen wie Celine und St. Laurent gibt. Und am 18. August lädt dann Bulgari zum Jazz -Brunch in ihr Kampener "Kleinod".

Auch wenn in Hamburg die Herbstsaison im Hockeyclub begonnen hat, das Wetter wieder gemischt auftritt und manchmal morgens jetzt schon ein Hauch von Herbst in der Inselluft liegt, das Sylter Hoch ist noch lange nicht zu Ende.

Tiffany & Co. Releases 2012 Corporate Responsibility Report Press Release : Tiffany & Co.  –  Thu, Aug 15, 2013 10:00 AM EDT
RELATED QUOTES Symbol Price Change TIF 79.62 -0.6800


tiffany NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--


tiffany jewelry
Tiffany & Co. today released its annual Corporate Responsibility Report.
The full report can be accessed at the company’s website
(tiffany.com/sustainability, #tiffanycsr) and details Tiffany’s
corporate sustainability initiatives and long history of environmental
and social responsibility.


tiffany outlet online
“The report documents our long-held commitment to sustainability and
influencing others in the jewelry industry to make environmental
conservation a critical part of their operations,” said Tiffany & Co.
Chairman and CEO Michael J. Kowalski. “We are proud of our
accomplishments and proud too of keeping our promise to our customers to
redouble our efforts in protecting the natural world.”


cheap tiffany & co jewelry
Through its business practices and collaborative efforts, the company
strives to positively influence the entire jewelry supply chain. For
example, Tiffany & Co. continuously works to promote responsible mining
standards and increase awareness about critical issues affecting the
industry, such as the environmental concerns surrounding the development
of the proposed Pebble Mine in Bristol Bay, Alaska.


tiffany outlet locations
The 2012 Corporate Responsibility Report provides an overview of
Tiffany’s most material environmental and social challenges and
opportunities. The following highlights specific areas of the report,
which aligns with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and United
National Global Compact (UNGC) reporting frameworks.


tiffany rings
Responsible Mining : Tiffany strives to
source diamonds, gemstones and precious metals from mines that conform
to high standards of social and environmental responsibility. Tiffany &
Co. sources metals and diamonds used in Tiffany & Co. owned and operated
manufacturing facilities directly form known mines when possible.
Tiffany & Co. manufactures approximately 60% of its jewelry at these
manufacturing facilities. In 2012, Tiffany traced 98% of precious metals
procured by Tiffany & Co. owned and operated manufacturing facilities
directly to a known mine or recycler.



Tiffany & Co. purchases all rough diamonds from countries that
participate in the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme. Further,
Tiffany & Co. traced 100% of the rough diamonds purchased in 2012 either
directly to a known mine or to a supplier that sources from multiple
known mines.



Over the last few years, Tiffany & Co. has financed diamond mines to
assure access to high-quality diamonds. Specifically, the company
finances projects in Sierra Leone and South Africa, allowing for a new
supply of diamonds that meet Tiffany & Co. standards and also increased
traceability.



Paper and Packaging : In 2012, 100% of paper
suppliers of Tiffany Blue bags and Tiffany Blue Boxes were Forest
Stewardship Council (FSC) -certified. The company recently introduced
a new Tiffany Blue bag, with 50% post-consumer recycled content in
selected cities in the United States. Based on the success of this
program, the company plans to roll out these new bags in additional
cities in the U.S. and abroad.



Industry Leadership: Tiffany & Co. was
added to the FTSE4Good ® Index in 2012, which identifies
businesses that meet globally recognized corporate social responsibility
standards.



Governance : Tiffany & Co. performed its
first annual disclosure in accordance with the Tiffany & Co.
Principles Governing Corporate Political Spending, adopted by the
Board of Directors in 2011. These principles apply globally to Tiffany &
Co. and its controlled affiliates.



Building Footprint : Tiffany & Co. received
the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Excellence in
Greenhouse Gas Management (Goal Achievement Award) for surpassing its
goal to reduce U.S. Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 10% per
square foot from 2006 to 2011.



Between 2010 and 2012, the Tiffany & Co. New York affiliate’s
headquarters were consolidated into a LEED-CI Platinum office space,
reducing emissions by 23%.



Our Employees : Tiffany performs periodic
surveys of its global employee population. The 2012 Global Employee
Survey had a 90% participation rate.



Tiffany set an ambitious goal of reducing our U.S. total recordable
incidence rate—the number of recordable workplace injuries or illnesses
per 100 full-time equivalent employees—by nearly 70% against a 2011
baseline by 2016.



Charitable Giving : In 2012, Tiffany & Co.
made charitable contributions totaling nearly 1% of pre-tax earnings.
Further, The Tiffany & Co. Foundation continues to play a key role in
Tiffany & Co.’s sustainability efforts, supporting leading organizations
working in areas like responsible mining and coral conservation.



For more details on these highlights and to read the full report, please

Tiffany & Co. operates jewelry stores and manufactures products through
its subsidiary corporations. Its principal subsidiary is Tiffany and
Company. The Company operates TIFFANY & CO. retail stores and boutiques
in the Americas, Asia-Pacific, Japan, Europe and the United Arab
Emirates and engages in direct selling through Internet, catalogue and

Little recourse when airlines delay or cancel flights
Posted by Samuel Riker
Featured News , Travel
Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

moncler Several years ago back when bags flew free and meals were included with certain flights the airlines would also do more for passengers if a flight was cancelled or significantly delayed.


moncler kieds It used to be common for stranded travelers to get a somewhat fair compensation for when the airlines were at fault for a cancellation and sometimes even if it wasn’t the airlines fault such as bad weather. Back around 5 or so years ago airlines paid for hotels and even meals much more readily, but these hard economic times the airlines will do just about anything to get out of paying for such costs even if they are at fault.


moncler jackets Bill Mosley, a spokesman for the Department of Transportation, said that the federal government does not regulate what airlines must do for passengers on canceled flights, though carriers are legally obligated to fulfill any promises made in their contract of carriage which is the lengthy document that governs ticket purchases.


women moncler boots Of course if you were to read this document you’d find that the word “may” has replaced “will” in most circumstances so as to make it so the airlines are responsible for next to nothing and thus not responsible to adequately compensate passengers whose flights get cancelled.


buy moncler Among the events that are considered beyond the airline’s control are: bad weather, acts of God, terrorist activities, war, strikes, “any shortage of labor, fuel or facilities” and “any event not reasonably foreseen, anticipated or predicted” by the airline.


moncler jackets for men So basically only actual problems with the aircraft itself “may” get a passenger who “asks” some sort of reasonable compensation, but in many cases even then it just may not happen. In fact Southwest airlines includes a “mechanical difficulties” clause in its contract.


Once upon a time airlines used to try to book a stranded passenger on another airlines, but again they now say they “may” do so and more and more that simply isn’t happening as airlines are working together less and less.


The best a stranded traveler can do these days is to be nice when you do get stranded as airline representatives do have some leeway so if you have a special circumstance such as a wedding or funeral they “may” see if they can do something to help you out. Otherwise your ext option could be to buy another ticket on another airline then sue the offending carrier in small claims court to get your money back from your original ticket purchase.

Temple St. Clair, a NoHo jewelry designer, has built her reputation on ready-made yellow gold amulets, which usually cost from $2,000 to $10,000 at places like Saks and Bloomingdale’s.

But when she acquired a 10-carat Burmese sapphire earlier this year on a buying trip to Asia, she knew just the client who would want to commission her to transform the rare stone into something unique. It was a woman in her 40s living in TriBeCa who already owned many of Ms. St. Clair’s signature pendants, and had a generous husband who wanted to buy her a gift to mark their 20th wedding anniversary.

high quality replica watches
After several weeks of discussion with the couple, which involved sending multiple sketches and three-dimensional molds, Ms. St. Clair created a ring for a fee, she said, of approximately $350,000. “I have always been focused on finished pieces, but personalization is a natural evolution of my brand,” she said.

swiss Mechanical movement replica watches
Ms. St. Clair is one of several fine-jewelry designers based in New York, including Kara Ross , Amrita Singh and Ippolita Rostagno , who are increasingly making pieces to order. This is after years of doing well among the fashionable set with relatively lower-priced off-the-rack items, along the lines of the Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra motif , like Ms. Clair’s amulets, stacking bangles (Ms. Rostagno), Indian-inspired bracelets (Ms. Singh) or statement cuffs (Ms. Ross).


So-called bespoke pieces (the term started in men’s wear but has spread, like “curate,” to everything from bicycles to software) are standard among certain luxury jewelers likes Leviev or Graff, but aren’t usually the norm for mid- to high-priced jewelry companies such as Ms. St. Clair’s, according to Milton Pedraza, chief executive of the Luxury Institute, a research and consulting firm in New York.


But in a bid to attract a more high-end clientele, meet increased demand from existing customers and burnish their brands, these designers say they are increasingly spending weeks or months working with buyers to come up with pieces especially for them, with (in theory) more longevity than couture clothing.


The new interest in customization comes after a drop in spending on jewelry after the 2008 recession. According to data from Mintel, a research firm based in Chicago, sales of watches and jewelry declined 8 percent from 2008 to 2009.


Ms. Singh and Ms. Ross, who started selling their collections at Bergdorf Goodman about a decade ago, said that sales of their regular lines decreased dramatically during that period. “I was down 75 percent,” said Ms. Singh, who developed a reputation for Rajasthani-style works made in Jaipur, India.


“The world was collapsing, and the price of gold was astronomical, and people just weren’t buying jewelry,” said Ms. Ross, known for oversize pieces made from materials like hand-carved rock crystal quartz, ebony and volcanic rock.


Though they kept designing fine jewelry, the women said, their main focus became their costume lines, with considerable success. Ms. Singh’s Bangle Bangle line, with pieces between $50 and $400, sold more than a half-million units last year, including on QVC, she said, and Ms. Ross’s Kara by Kara Ross, which ranges from $100 to $300, is carried by nearly 70 stores, including Neiman Marcus.


There are now signs that the jewelry industry is rebounding somewhat; Mintel research shows that total retail sales of watches and jewelry grew almost 8 percent from 2010 to 2011, and the company predicts growth of 13 percent between 2012 and 2017, to reach $80.6 billion.


But Mr. Pedraza said that most of the improvement is on the higher end of the spectrum. “The jewelry brands that are doing extremely well today are top-tier names like Cartier,” he said, “and the ones a level down can position themselves as more high-end through bespoke work.”


The designers say that the greater sums such pieces command reflect not just the uniqueness of the materials, but the considerable time (and sometimes airfare) that goes into putting them together.


Ms. Singh’s custom items, for example, take at least six months because she finds all her stones in Jaipur and doesn’t start searching for them until she is hired for a specific project. “It can take months just to get the right gems,” she said.


Ms. Ross said that she spends the majority of the time involved communicating with the women she is designing for.  “You have to go through a process where you become really intimate with your client, because you’re trying to tap into what they want from something that is very personal to them,” she said.


One such experience was with Regina Scully, 50, who runs a public relations and brand marketing firm in Midtown. Ms. Ross designed an oversized maple wood link necklace for her with a heart pendant and gold accents that cost $15,000.


“I was dating my now-husband, and it was a period in my life when I was falling wildly in love, so I wanted a very romantic piece of jewelry,” Ms. Scully said.


Ms. Ross started by sending her a sketch with dimensions; Ms. Scully said she wanted a bigger heart. After the second drawing, she wanted a longer chain, and on the final, she asked for more gold on the centerpiece.


“I was trying to capture my emotion in this piece of jewelry, and every time I wear that necklace, I remember that really special time,” Ms. Scully said.


She has since hired Ms. Ross for 10 additional custom pieces and says they have a different level of sentiment for her compared with ready-made ones, because they are connected to specific memories.


A memory is also what Dr. Erin Gilbert, a dermatologist who practices in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn, wanted to capture when she hired Ms. Rostagno of Ippolita to create a wavy gold pendant for her with the engraving “Welcome to the Club” for her recent 40th birthday. It cost $1,000, less than much of Ippolita’s ready-to-wear stock, and “the piece has such a significance because it relates to a milestone moment in my life and is not like all the generic jewelry out there,” she said.


Dr. Gilbert is among the 30 or so women for whom Ms. Rostagno has designed personalized pieces within the last year. To her friends and family, she has offered “body imprinting”: sheets of wax draped on a part of the client’s figure and then cast in metals, like a sterling silver ring she recently made modeled to someone’s knuckle. The service will soon be offered to the public, with prices upon request (industry code for “if you have to ask, you probably can’t afford it”).


Despite the generally higher prices of custom work, the designers all say that their ready-to-wear collections bring in far more revenue, but the clamor for personalization has proved irresistible. “My intent when I started my line wasn’t to do custom work, but my clients are asking for it more and more,” Ms. Ross said. And if a client isn’t happy with the finished product? This is almost as rare an occurrence as a Burmese sapphire, the designers said.


“You’re spending so much time with your customers throughout the process, and they are heavily involved,” Ms. St. Clair said. “In the end, they’re usually thrilled to get a piece of jewelry that no one else in the world has.”

New levels of luxury astound at Crystals as retail rises and gaming revenue slides

tiffany It’s no secret that gaming revenue has dropped to the 40-percent level of the total money spend in Las Vegas. We have gone from a gambling-based town to a full-fledged, entertainment-driven vacation city with nightlife and pool parties now becoming the vibrant economic engine driver.

wholesale tiffany jewelry There will always be slot machines, roulette wheels, blackjack and baccarat tables, but the days of $1 million betting nights are long gone and replaced by shopping the rich and famous way. Now it’s sky-high price tags for jewelry, fashion and other top-ticket trinkets and treasures.

tiffany silver Demand from visitors around the world is at an all-time high because our prices are oftentimes less than theirs at home. We might do double takes and blink in disbelief at prices here, but overseas visitors are snapping up goods at what they perceive as bargains.

tiffany I know of London regulars who make 10 trips a year here to buy from our outlet stores and resell the bargains back in Britain, making plenty of profit and covering the airfares — and getting a Las Vegas vacation every time.

tiffany outlet locations Other Europeans, plus, Asian and Middle East visitors have turned Las Vegas into one of the world’s great shopping destinations. It’s a credit-card bonanza as they spend, spend spend. When MGM Resorts executives proudly flung open in December 2009 the doors to Crystals at CityCenter, Aria, Vdara and more, there was profound fear that their timing was wrong.

tiffany & co Naysayers predicted failure. Competitors said America’s economy was failing so badly that there was no room or need for luxury. Experts said the big-spend days had vanished and that MGM had missed the boat, let alone the luxury yacht.

However, Crystals has gone on to become the Strip’s premiere retail destination and this month will see even more evidence of its success with a slew of store openings. And Valentino, who arrived on his mega-yacht to have lunch alongside me at the oceanfront restaurant Concho di Sogno near Sorrento when I was there in July, is leading the charge.

Crystals Senior Vice President and General Manager Farid Matraki tells me that the growth is increasing not only with the new boutiques, but also one expansion will result in its retailer having its largest store in the world here. In Farid’s words:

Tiffany & Co. Grand Opening @Crystals Launch slideshow » Modern Primitives at Fendi in Crystals Launch slideshow »

“Crystals continues to grow with the addition of the iconic houses of Valentino, Richard Mille, Loro Piana and Rimowa, as well as Tourbillon’s largest store in the world — expanding our collection to more than 40 boutiques.

“As it was originally intended, Crystals is the United States’ first luxury-only shopping center featuring the largest collection of unique-to-market stores in Las Vegas. Without question, it is the place for luxury retail shopping on the Strip.”

He continued: “Some of the world’s greatest brands have opened under our spectacular crystalline roof, including the largest Louis Vuitton store in North America, as well as flagship stores for Prada, Gucci, Tiffany & Co., Dolce & Gabbana Men’s and Dolce & Gabbana Women’s, Roberto Cavalli and Ermenegildo Zegna.

“What is truly extraordinary is that we continue to grow the Crystals family with equally spectacular offerings. This summer will mark the beginning of another fashion invasion that would make any fashionista swoon. Early this month, Valentino will open its new boutique featuring the designer’s largest selection of retail items in the city. The store will carry all product categories, including the latest ready-to-wear, handbag and shoe collections.

“Later in August, Crystals will open the first Richard Mille boutique in Las Vegas, making it only the second in the country. The premier watchmaker and jeweler’s store will feature more than 40 watches, each handmade with the latest technical innovation and detailed artistry for which Richard Mille is known. This includes coveted timepieces such as the RM 008 Tourbillon Split Chronograph and RM 018 “Hommage à Boucheron.”

“German luxury luggage-maker Rimowa will open its 2,000-square-foot Las Vegas flagship boutique at Crystals in August, as well. The location will house the largest selection of Rimowa cases available in the city with custom colors such as summer’s newest hue, Ipanema Blue, and exclusive items such at its new leather goods collection.

“Opening this fall, Loro Piana will continue its six-generation legacy of delivering the finest cashmere, wool products and luxury goods from Italy in its 2,500-square-foot location at Crystals. The boutique will showcase the brand’s ‘Gifts’ line, including accessories and products from the women’s, men’s and children’s lines.

“I’m very pleased to recognize Tourbillon’s success at Crystals. The boutique will expand its current location into the brand’s largest location in the world in October, becoming the Las Vegas flagship. The high-end, multi-brand watch and jewelry store will feature collections from the most prestigious names in watch making including Breguet, Blancpain, Glashütte Original, Jaquet Droz, Omega and Swatch.

“Complementing the incredible retailers throughout Crystals, we also recently unveiled a remarkable light installation by internationally acclaimed artist James Turrell that can be experienced from multiple vantage points — seen from afar as subtly changing planes of color or from within an area flooded with light.

“Crystals is an unmatched shopping experience for Las Vegas visitors and locals, and the most recognized brands in fashion continue to choose Crystals as the home for their most luxurious offerings. I look forward to the future of Crystals as these new stores join us.”

Stoya on Sex, Sexing, Sexism, Sexuality And Cleaning The Cat Box Bijan Stephen | August 12th, 2013

watches At the 2013 Adult Video Awards, I had the good fortune to meet the woman who calls herself Stoya. She’s mercurial, striking, and staggeringly smart—by turns a writer , lyra acrobat, and wildly successful adult performer. She’s also a busy bee. The other day we talked about privacy, sexuality, the Internet, feminism, pizza delivery guys and doing porn when she’s 50. Her Instagram is entirely cat-related .


cheap watches The Awl: So, how long have you worked in the industry?


omegawatches Stoya: Mm…since late 2007. So, six years?


omegawatches The Awl: What are you doing in LA right now? Are you shooting stuff or just visiting or…?


omega watches Stoya: Well, it’s gonna be a tangent-y complicated kind of thing. My boyfriend works like, every day. And he works in the kind of sense where he has to be physically in Los Angeles. But now I’m going to go into the weird tangent… we’re both kind of sensitive about talking about each other in a press way, just because it’s always weird to be, like… someone will ask, “So, how did you feel about The Canyons ?” I can’t go on record telling you how he felt about anything ! I can give you his email address, and you can talk to his press person about setting up an interview, but this is just awkward! So we’re kind of super awkward about it still—at least, I’m super awkward about it still. My boyfriend is really awesome, and I would totally talk about him, except then, things that I say will get quoted. And then things might get awkward. So, as a policy, it’s like, my boyfriend: “Is it James Deen? I’m not telling you.” Which then in itself is awkward, because everybody knows that we’re dating. I’m still navigating how to set boundaries without being a dick.


omega watches The Awl: You guys are like the Jay Z and Beyoncé of the industry!


Stoya: He’s the Beyoncé. I’m the Jay Z.


The Awl: In other hilarious news, my mother just called me…while I’m on the phone with a very famous adult actress. You can’t make that shit up.


Stoya: Does your mother know that you went to the AVNs? [laughs]


The Awl: Nope. I was going to let her find that out via this article.


This chat is one of a pair of interviews with new porn stars. Next we talked to Dale Cooper .

Stoya: I had a roommate when I was, 18, 19, 20, and every time we’d move, she’d say that she didn’t want me to tell my mother what our new address was because I like to do things like take my clothes off on the Internet. And then pretend she’s not going to find out. And she didn’t want my mom to show up at the door looking for me. [laughs] [imitating her mother] “WHAT HAS MY DAUGHTER DONE?!”


The Awl: Yikes.


Stoya: I think now, if you don’t want the whole world to find out about it, then you just shouldn’t do it. But it definitely took me a year to work up the courage to tell my mom that I was… taking my clothes off on the Internet. And in the interim my roommate did not want to be the first one to have to deal with her when she found out.


The Awl: How did she deal with it?


Stoya: My mom was… a feminist. She’s the first woman working in the engineering department of the nuclear plant that she eventually started working at—and she raised me, like, “You can do whatever you want! Any job you want. You are not constrained by your female-ness, or your vagina, or anything like that.” And she struggled for a few years—or at least, seemed to struggle—with the idea that her daughter, who she raised to do whatever she wanted, then wanted to go do porn. And not just do porn, but do super mainstream, commercial, fake-eyelashes, high heels…My first two movies I had pigtails! And so that was a little bit of a thing. But she’s come around!


The Awl: That must have been a hard conversation to have! I was actually about to ask you about the intersection of porn and feminism, and if you think there’s a place for it.


Stoya: That is such a complex thing! My career in porn is in no way a feminist act. That’s my job. I like my job. But I’m not doing anything to contribute to the furtherment of the feminist cause by showing up and being made up and styled to look like a very conventionally attractive woman and then having sex on camera. There’s nothing feminist about that. But I’d also argue that pornography is entertainment, and therefore it’s no more anti-feminist for me to go and do my job—and do the high heels and the fake-eyelashes and makeup and all that stuff and have heterosexual sex with men, that’s redundant—but it’s no more anti-feminist than being a female actress showing up to a red carpet event wearing a dress. Women like to wear dresses. It’s okay. Feminism is such a complicated thing to me, because the parts of feminism that I encounter a lot seem to be the extremes of it. And I feel like it’s not fair to judge feminism on its extremes, just like it’s not fair to judge porn on the extremes. But in my experience with feminism, things like “All sexwork and porn is bad, and it contributes to rape culture, and keeps women down!”—which I don’t really think is the case—or it’s more specific and more positive, but it’s stuff like “Stoya, you don’t do things that you don’t want to do on camera, so that means that all porn is ethical and great and wonderful!” I had a headdesk moment, because I kind of have to put my foot down, and say no, I don’t do that. I am not comfortable doing that. I do not want to do that scene. Or, you know, it’s less of a hard-line thing. It’s like “Hey, it makes me feel uncomfortable to play these roles.” There’s a movie where everyone is cheating on their significant other. And it makes me feel weird. So I’d prefer not to do that anymore. And there are definitely—like all industries—there are people in porn and companies in porn that aren’t ethical.


The Awl: Right.


Stoya: The whole thing is so complicated! [laughs]


My new favorite game is replacing "pornography" with "carpentry" or "food service" when people ask questions about my job.


— Stoya (@stoya) August 1, 2013



The Awl: It’s definitely a nuanced thing, at least the way I see it. The way that you’ve described it, as porn inherently in the act itself being anti-feminist, is a lot different. I think third-wave feminism has sort of come back around to the idea. And I think you can see this in, for example, the new journal Porn Studies . That in itself is saying that porn is worth a critical examination, and that cultural studies has sort of failed in its duty to really closely read the issues. But I think you’re right, I think it’s very interesting. And it’s funny because your mom is—technically, according to Wikipedia—a second-wave feminist. It’s a fun career path, I’m sure. I’m sure you get into heated arguments about it all the time.


Stoya: We used to. When I was a child, and an asshole —I still kind of am—my mother and her mother and I would sit around and arguments about the right to abortion would happen. And the three of us all believed that women should have a right to abortion. And that the right to abortion is a very important thing. But we’d sit around, and I’d kind of poke holes in their arguments; and because I was a kid—and also a dick!—I’d say things like, “Well, none of us here have fertile wombs!” [laughs] Like, “Maybe our roles should be less heated, and more of a supportive thing—like, have a fertile womb!”


The Awl: Oh my.


Stoya: My opinions at that age were extreme, and not very well thought out, as is common with kids. I look at stuff I said three years ago, and I’m like, “Wow, that is really oversimplified, and I should think about what I say more!”


The Awl: That’s what growing up feels like.


Stoya: We just kind of both like to debate things, so we would debate anything.


The Awl: So are you matriarchs? That’s a weird question, but, you know….


Stoya: I would say I see more of that on my dad’s side of the family. I’d also say that it wasn’t a joke, because it was true, but I made a comment that was meant to be light-hearted on The Huffington Post recently. And word has come down from my family that they would appreciate it if I thought about the fact that they did not choose to live a public life! [laughs] And think maybe they don’t want to get teased at work because of something that I said, now that I’m doing interviews with, you know, actual media. Not that the porn media isn’t actual media, but media that more people see more often?


The Awl: So when did you start doing real—and by “real” I mean not porn—interviews and stuff in the media? I saw the Village Voice profile of you recently . How’s being a public figure, and not just for having sex on camera?


Stoya: It’s weird, is what it is. Press people and stuff—and sometimes random strangers—will ask, “Does it feel weird to have a fleshlight and know that all these people are having sex with a replica of your vagina?” And I always thought that was cool. But what is weird is the position that I’m in now: it’s like, now that I’m definitely—I’ve been on the cover of the Village Voice !—the places I’m being talked about more recently are not age-verified. They’re not aimed at a market that’s 18+. For instance, the latest piece I wrote for VICE, about ethics in porn —I feel like that’s an important thing to say. Or the “ So you want to be in porn " one. Because, realistically, I know—I hope that there aren’t (just because it’s illegal) kids under the age of 18 watching my videos.


The Awl: They are.


Stoya: Oh, I know they are! [laughs] It’s like okay, before you get stars in your eyes, and think you’re going to show up in the Valley the day you turn 18, and people are just going to throw Louboutins and press and compliments at you, let’s talk about the reality of it a little bit. Because I do have the reach that I do on social networking and stuff, I can talk about things like condoms. Condoms are a really good thing! The reason you don’t see condoms in a lot of pornos, the reason I feel comfortable having sex without condoms in porno, is because we’re all tested all the time. But you don’t see that. So, if you and your partners are all going to get tested every 2-4 weeks, then you’re taking the same risks that we are. But that’s probably not the case!


Things that will not go over well with literary agents: "Well, I was going to write this book but then LOOK AT THIS ADORABLE CAT."


— Stoya (@stoya) August 8, 2013



The Awl: That’s really interesting! I had one other question about the fleshlight, but we can get to that later. I was on your Twitter earlier, and you have almost 150,000 followers. I think the reason why a lot of people enjoy your social media presence is because you’re a porn star who actually cares about people’s well-being. Speaking of, the porn sex vs. real sex thing—


Stoya: Oh God.


The Awl: I read that piece in Medium , and I wanted to get your take on it. What do you think?


Stoya: Well, here’s, um…Well, the Internet is a Thing That Happened. And thanks to a combination of the perceived anonymity on the Internet, and the ability to connect with people all across the globe—oh and the search indexes—it’s pretty obvious now that this concept of “normal sex," which is two people having sex in a handful of not really very articulately specified positions, to completion, and by completion I mean the ejaculation of a man; I think one of the serious problems with this concept is that it doesn’t take into account lesbians. Or it doesn’t take into account two people who have vaginas, who like sleeping with women, but who are not lesbians. Because so on and so forth. It’s this very concrete, narrow idea of sex—it’s not the kind of sex that a lot of people are interested in having. And I’m sure there are people who do like their sex very, for lack of a better word, vanilla. That’s great and that’s wonderful, and they like things simple, I guess would be a good way to describe it? And that’s great for them. But there are also all of these other people—there are whole message boards and stuff devoted to kinds of sex that we legally can’t show in pornography! Or at least, pornography that we produce in America. Like, Google watersports. Not at work. See what pops up.


The Awl: I’ve been on the Internet for a while, I’ve encountered these things….


Stoya: So you know what I’m talking about! [laughs]


Stoya: If you look around on the Internet now, it’s really difficult to deny the fact that there are many different kinds of sex that people engage in. And it doesn’t necessarily end with a man ejaculating. It doesn’t necessarily even involve an appendage going into a hole. So real sex—I understand why they would say porn sex vs. real sex.


The Awl: But it’s not a nuanced enough argument, right?


Stoya: Yeah. It’s just a very basic “I bet you got a lot of clicks out of that. Good job.”


The Awl: We're also talking to gay male porn star Dale Cooper. In our interview, he was talking about the fact that gay porn—or, at least, male-male porn—is very underrepresented when you talk in public about porn. You think of men and women. And at the AVNs, I thought the same sort of thing; there was only one gay porn booth. How do you think we should proceed in not-marginalizing those groups? Like people who fall outside the spectrum. And is there anything that we can do to help that?


Stoya: There’s definitely something to be said for talking directly to a wide array of people; for instance, you won’t see much discussion of gay porn, or even queer porn and feminist porn when I do interviews, because I’ve never done it. I might know a couple of people in it, but I’m not gonna talk about it very much because I don’t know what the hell I’m talking about! If someone asks me about cars, I’m gonna go, “Look, I have ridden in cars, I have never had a driver’s license! I am not qualified!” And then, the other side of that needs to be framing of who the people who are being spoken to are. So, you know, you talk to me, and it would be more proactive about admitting that it’s not inclusive to frame it as “Porn star that works in the commercial-oriented, heterosexual porn industry." And then you talk to the guy in male-on-male porn and you frame it as—whether he works for a smaller studio, or one of the “big ones”—he’s whatever his job description is, he’s “the gay male porn” or whatever it is that he identifies as. And then at least it’s like, hey, here’s one aspect of porn. When you’re talking to a doctor, you mention that they’re a podiatrist, or an endocrinologist.


The Awl: It’s specialties. So maybe, do you think the porn academic journal can bring this to light?


Stoya: That could be really interesting. They haven’t put anything out yet, so I’m curious to see where they’re going to go with it.


The Awl: Would you ever contribute?


Stoya: Maybe… I don’t know if I’m, like, science-y enough? [laughs] My only experience with colleges has been very art school focused, so…It’s not like I’ve ever taken a course in journalism or something. It’s like when people try to tell me that I am an actress. It’s like “Well, there are these people who are actually actors, and they’ve devoted a lot of time and effort to training and classes and stuff.” I don’t know if they would be insulted, but I feel like it’s kind of insulting to the idea of actors, to say yes, call me an actress! I go to work and have sex for a living, and try to do the best job at delivering some lines that I can. You know?


The Awl: [laughs]


Stoya: I’m sure there’s actual journalism stuff that you learn, whether you’re being trained on the job or you take classes in it. [laughs] So for me to submit something to an academic journal, like… But I have a blog!


The Awl: It’s funny that you mention not feeling like a real actress, but then you have your boyfriend—who is unnamed and will remain unnamed—


Stoya: [laughs]


The Awl: …Starring in this film, and I just read a review in the New Yorker and it was a very positive review . I think most people who aren’t porn stars would say that—or would imagine that—having sex on camera is really hard and takes some training, whether that’s on the job or off.


Stoya: But even he put serious effort into it, you know?


The Awl: …Do you not put serious effort into your films?


Stoya: I do. But maybe what all actors do is show up and play themselves, but only the parts of themselves that are right for what’s being shot right then. And if that’s the case, then maybe it is kind of similar. It’s the whole process of portraying a character. I don’t really do that in porn. It’s always, “You’re you. Now read these lines.”


The Awl: So how does your actual life conflict with your public persona? As far as not acting when you’re being films.


Stoya: I’m not entirely sure what you’re asking. Is it like, how having sex professionally then affects my personal life? Or is it…


The Awl: I’m just wondering because you don’t see what you do as acting. So how does that translate from your films to your real, personal life?


Stoya: Hm. This could get interesting. I like when I’m stumped in interviews. I did this interview last week with this woman who was writing about pubic hair…


The Awl: [laughs]


Stoya: And we got into the discussion of whether, for instance, wearing lipstick is feminist or not. Then I said I feel like that’s a red herring—we’re arguing about lipstick and whether that’s feminist or not, maybe as a way to process our feelings on the really big issues, like equal pay and stuff like that. Or maybe we’re just getting distracted by something as silly as an aesthetic choice. It came out a lot better—and both of us were like “Oooh! That is an interesting idea!” So, okay. I feel like there seem to be two categories of ways of dealing with being a public person. Being a person who performs. I’m definitely not Lady Gaga or Katy Perry or something, but there is a certain amount of public interest in my personal life and things like that. It’s a weird thing. And I feel like people either tend to put on a persona—it’s like, they put on their so-and-so hat, and they do their interviews, and they do their appearances, and they do their jobs, and then they go home, and they take it all off and they’re them. I just don’t have the ability to do that. I’m just gonna be me. If it works out that’s great, and if doesn’t work out, that’s fine.


The Awl: I think that’s a great way to be—I think it translates. I think you can really tell that you’re not trying to be someone that you’re not.


Stoya: But then the flip side of that is a thing sometimes.


Sometimes I get an email so gross that it makes me want to avoid my inbox for the rest of the day.


— Stoya (@stoya) August 10, 2013



The Awl: That was sort of my next question. I was going to ask about fans. How do you deal with crazy fans—have you ever had a conversation with a fan who thinks that they know you from your public persona because it’s not that different from your private one?


Stoya: Well, first let’s talk about the flip side. And then we’ll talk about the fans. The flip side is: if my public persona was a separate persona and a performance art kind of character, then I probably wouldn’t… there isn’t any distance when people have mean things to say! [laughs] That’s just a blown-up version of being a real person. Someone at the grocery store might tell me that they don’t like my face. And it would be the same thing, except on a smaller scale. But as far as crazy people—there’s always gonna be crazy people. There were crazy people that I just happened to walk past on the street, before I started doing porn. And they were crazy. And sometimes when I encounter crazy people, it’s just that they’re crazy, and I just happen to be standing near them. And it has nothing to do with who I am, or what my career is, or anything like that. Other than that—other than the ones who are most likely just nuts—I feel like most of the people I attract in a way that they want to consume my work, or follow me on Twitter, or come see me at a convention, or if they see me on a street or out at a place, they know who I am and want to come to say hi. I feel like they’re a little bit better at critical thinking than the average bear? [laughs]


The Awl: As far as we know, bears can’t critically think…


Stoya: So they’re definitely better at critical thinking than we think bears are! They get that just because they saw a porno where the pizza delivery guy came and I had sex with him doesn’t mean that I have sex with pizza delivery guys—or think that I can trade sex for pizza, because I feel like you’d get fired for giving someone a pizza, if you were a pizza delivery boy, just because they had sex with you.


I get really sad when an awesome person's twitter has some Vice President of New Media's spam-y little fingerprints all over it.


— Stoya (@stoya) June 30, 2013



The Awl: Well…I’m sure that they’d be like, “Oh, the customer didn’t show up,” or they’d take it out of their own paycheck. There are ways.


Stoya: Okay, okay. After I did that pizza delivery guy scenario I was curious, because the scenario shows up in a lot of porn. And sometimes, art does mirror life. So I was curious. And I was asking people—I knew a guy who was a pizza delivery guy, and he delivered pizza to this house one time, and the wife answered. They were swingers, the wife and husband. Then he started sleeping with her, and the husband was totally cool with it. But they still paid for their pizza. It wasn’t like an on-the-clock sort of thing.


The Awl: I actually heard a very similar story at the AVNs, from a porn star. She was like, “I wonder if I can do this…” And she did. And paid for her pizza. So I guess paying for pizza is a real thing. So anyway, to change the topic for a little bit: Do you feel like a celebrity?


Stoya: No, but I was actually thinking about that recently. I perform at this place in New York City sometimes, called The Box. And they’re a very special venue.


The Awl: Pun intended…?


Stoya: Yes, the pun is completely intended. It’s a unique sort of venue, and Vanity Fair did a profile on the owner . They pulled a bunch of the performers in for a portrait. I was really excited to be in Vanity Fair ! When it came out, I was like “Oh my god, Internet, I’m in Vanity Fair !” That was really cool. And then someone commented, saying something like “Why is everything you do so cool?” And listed some stuff. I guess if you look at it on paper, I do look kinda cool. But I don’t think of it that way, because I don’t have managers, and staff, and an assistant, and that kind of stuff—designers don’t send me clothes…


The Awl: Yet. I feel like this could happen.


Stoya: Thank you! I clean the catbox, and we have three cats, and the cats just sit there and watch me, like “Where are you taking that poop, lady? That’s ours.” And so I feel like I’m just a person. And I’m aware that I am a very quirky person, and that I have chosen a non-standard life. I don’t feel like I’m particularly super-awesome-above-average; every time something cool happens, I’m like “Oh my god, I get to do this really cool thing? That’s really cool!” [laughs] But then I wonder: Every three or four months, I get to do something really cool—like, the Vanity Fair thing came out. And before that, I was profiled for the Village Voice , and I was on the cover of it. Further back, other cool stuff. So I feel like maybe because it’s a steady diet of really cool, it feels kind of normal in an odd way? Except not normal at all. I don’t know if that makes any sense. But then I was wondering…Does Angelina Jolie feel like a person? [laughs] Is everybody just walking around feeling like a person without realizing how insanely cool they are? Because Angelina Jolie is one of the coolest women in the world, in my opinion, having never met her, just read a lot of things about her on the Internet. [laughs] Like Supervert . I don’t even know if Supervert is a man, but I think he’s a man. Do you realize how incredibly fascinating he is?


The Awl: That is certainly one way of looking at it. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that The Awl is a very cool outlet.


Stoya: I really love that one column ! Does she know how cool she is? Or does she feel like a person? [laughs]


The Awl: I think she knows how cool she is. I definitely view you as a celebrity, so this is kind of cool for me.


Stoya: [laughs]


The Awl: So, to change the topic a little bit: What do you like to read? Other than Supervert, of course.


Stoya: Supervert’s actually kind of heavy for me sometimes. I recently got into professional wrestling as a spectator; I cannot get enough. I read The Rock’s biography, and I’m working on Eric Bischoff’s right now—I have a whole list that the Internet kindly referred me to of other professional wrestling books…


The Awl: You’re joking.


Stoya: I’m completely serious! You know what I watched twice this morning?


The Awl: Wrestlemania?


Stoya: "Total Divas," the E! reality show about some of the divas. I didn’t just watch it once, I watched it twice. The same episode. [laughs]


The Awl: After porn, what do you see yourself doing? Do you ever see yourself stopping?


Stoya: I would like to continue writing, and see what I can do with that. Because I feel like, at some point, I’m no longer going to be viable in front of the camera. And so I will need to do things that don’t involve being mass-market appealing…


The Awl: I dunno, I think writing is pretty mass-marketable.


Stoya: I guess. I can just sit with my computer and do that! As far as—retiring is, again, complicated. Once you’ve done porn, you’ve done porn. I don’t really see a reason to be like, “I’m done! I’m walking away!” If I were 50 and someone that I wanted to work with was like, “Hey, Stoya, we need someone who looks like they’re 50 (and you look like you’re 50) to play this role in this porno!” I would probably do it, because it would be fun! You know, it’s not really reasonable to expect that I’m going to be working [in porn] twice a month when I’m 50. I’m not going to count on that.

Kris Jenner’s Talk Show Called “Unwatchable” And Kanye West Sends Pap To The Hospital After A Scuffle At LAX
by Lauren on July 22nd, 2013

tiffany


tiffany
It hasn't been a good week for those closest to Kim Kardashian , that's for sure.  Not only has her mother Kris Jenner's talk show trial run been universally panned, her beau Kanye West is scuffling with paps at the airport.  Good times!


tiffany
First up, New York Post columnist Linda Stassi is claiming that Kris has been trying to bribe her for better reviews after writing that the pimp momager has as much business helming a talk show as her "talentless daughter had for hosting a talent show."  Ouch.


tiffany
According to Radar , Linda claims her "first bribe" arrived on Thursday in the form of a dozen gourmet cupcakes and a sterling silver Tiffany pen worth $325.  Hey Kris!  Although I haven't seen it, I'll happily write a sweet little review of your show for the right price! 


tiffany

In the note attached to the pricey offering, Kris joked that maybe Linda could use the pen to create a "better review next time."



While Linda makes it clear that she can't accept gifts in exchange for a favorable review, she took to her column to poke more fun at the obnoxious matriarch.  She addresses Kris :  “I cannot be bought – for a pen. A pen and pencil set, maybe – but just a pen? To improve your rating, Mrs. Kardashian-Jenner , either you somehow become interesting, which given the data seems as likely as the pope turning Jewish, or you do better with the bribes.”



Perhaps Kris should buy stock in the cupcake company as a different reviewer described the show as "unwatchable" while another called it "horrible, boring, [and] self-involved."  The ratings seem to reflect this general consensus as well.



If you think that's bad for Kris, wait until you hear about Kanye's terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day (Alexander has nothing on the poor tiny rapper!) that happened last week.



People is reporting that the tiny rapper got into a an altercation with pap videographer Daniel Ramos as Kanye left Los Angeles International Airport on Friday.  Before lunging at the camera man, the new dad can be heard telling Ramos, "You're trying to get me in trouble so I have to pay you, like, $250,000."  Well, Kanye likely gave the poor guy his wish!



A source tells the site, " Kanye hates when the paparazzi speaks to him.  He got very annoyed with the videographer and lost it."



A spokesperson for the LAPD revealed that the paramedics were called, and Ramos was taken to the hospital.  She released a statement reading, "A police report was taken by the Los Angeles Police Department and the investigation is ongoing."



Another officers explains, "We can confirm that our detectives are handling the case, however, we're not sure if a misdemeanor or felony charge will be filed. The charge will determine if it goes to the City Attorney or D.A.'s office."



You'd think that Ramos would have learned his lesson by not…it was his SUV that received the wrath of a bald Britney Spears' umbrella back in the day…



Check out the video below!



TELL US-ARE YOU SURPRISED TO HEAR THAT KRIS IS GIFTING REVIEWERS?  PLUS, WAS KANYE BAITED BY THE VIDEOGRAPHER?

high quality replica watches
A person’s mouth says a lot about them. Sounds obvious, but I’m talking less about what vocalizes and more about the way it behaves when we eat, drink, speak or even cough.


high quality swiss replica watches
Researchers at National Taiwan University believe that monitoring such oral behavior can provide doctors with a wealth of information about a patient’s dietary habits, dental hygiene and overall health.


high quality replica watches for men
To test their idea, they built an accelerometer-based oral sensory system to identify how a mouth is being used based on the movement of its teeth. Placed in the mouths of eight people, a prototype system correctly recognized each person’s oral behavior up to 94 percent of the time. [Cheng-Yuan Li et al., Sensor-Embedded Teeth for Oral Activity Recognition ]


fake watches
The researchers now want to build a wireless version that might someday fit inside a fake tooth or attach to a pair of braces. The sensor could send you or your doctor a message when you’re not sticking to your diet or not keeping your promise to quit smoking.


swiss replica watches
Let’s hope they also build in an alarm for bad breath. That would benefit the person wearing the sensor, and everyone around them as well.



—Larry Greenemeier

No More Hunting for Spanish Treasures Says Florida
Published at 1:31 pm EST, August 4, 2013

Photo: Spanish Galleon in Florida

Click Here to Enlarge Photo


rolex Florida should be a treasure hunter’s dream come true. Except it’s not.


rolex watch Its sand and sea hide riches of the past, thanks to the state’s Spanish colonizers of the 1500s and treasure-laden ships that sank off shores.


rolex datejust replica


rolex Until recently, you didn’t have needed to dig very deep to find valuable booty. With a metal detector, you easily could unearthed treasures left behind by forgetful beachgoers.


rolex A Tiffany & Co. platinum wedding band worth more than $2,000, a 3/4-carat diamond ring, a 2-carat ruby ring and a mint-condition Rolex Submariner watch are just a few of the riches Gary Drayton recovered during his metal-hunting days. His best find was a 9-carat Spanish-era emerald ring.


rolex watch But that may be the end of it for Drayton and his treasure-seeking ilk.


While it’s legal to use metal detectors at Florida’s Atlantic and Gulf Coast state parks, Drayton told Florida Watchdog, treasure hunters have to get permission from the park manager and hunt only on the dry, sandy beach between the high water line and the sand dune.


The Florida Division of Recreation & Parks Department of Environmental Protection says the restriction is to ensure the “preservation and protection of archaeological resources.”


Now, it seems, cities are getting into the act.


St. Augustine recently decided to expand its restrictions by prohibiting the use of metal detectors on public property without the express consent of the city manager or the town archaeologist.


State treasure hunters are up in arms.


“If you lose your watch in the sea, even close to shore, I can’t help you find it with a detector because I’m violating the law,” Drayton said. “They can fine me and I can go to jail.”


The laws were enacted years ago when the state began approving licenses for marine exploration.


If you hunt offshore, where big treasure awaits discovery, you will need a lot more than a metal detector.  Along with special permits, there are numerous regulations and procedures to be met before you can even think about digging. If you actually do hit it big under the seat, the state’s takes a 20-percent share of your booty.

Frances Allen’s Desert Round Up —’Marilyn’ Staying ‘Til Mid-November

stores sell tiffany jewelry “Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days.” Benjamin Franklin had the wit and wisdom to make this statement, but P. S. Resorts—an organization made up of local hoteliers to promote Palm Springs tourism through events and attractions—had the foresight that proved Franklin wrong—at least when the guest is Marilyn Monroe.


tiffany and co outlet Just over a year ago, P.S. Resorts arranged for a 26 feet tall, 17-ton-plus sculpture of Marilyn Monroe to be placed on a vacant lot in the center of downtown Palm Springs to serve as a temporary tourist attraction for one year.


tiffany & co Based upon the iconic Seven Year Itch scene where Monroe’s skirt billows up while she stands over a subway grate, the sculpture, formally known as “Forever Marilyn” and inspired by artist Seward Johnson, is extremely realistic— especially in the skin tones.


cheap tiffany and co jewelry Her unique patina involves 10 layers of hues with a matte finish except for the glossy elements of her lips, toenails and the pearlized finish on her earrings.


tiffany outlet The sculpture was an instant hit with both tourists and local residents, so P.S. Resorts were pleased to report that “Forever Marilyn” had extended her stay, first to next September, and then again until mid-November, when the sculpture moves to a 42-acre sculpture park in New Jersey.


Last year, P. S. Resorts organized a hugely popular outdoor Marilyn Monroe movie series where people could watch her classic films and attend a concert by an Elton John impersonator. This year, the special events surrounding the sculpture include a Saturday, Sept. 7 showcase for a Beach Boys tribute band and the “Beatles Experience.”


A visit to Forever Marilyn is free and she’ll meet you at the corner of Palm Canyon and Tahquitz Canyon Drives in the heart of downtown Palm Springs.

Readers wishing to spend part of the upcoming holiday resort season in the Desert’s first and hopefully-renovated five-star resort, the Ritz-Carlton Rancho Mirage will have to rethink its reservations as the often-promised, often canceled, opening of the hotel has—you guessed it —been put off again.


The property developers have requested that the city of Rancho Mirage extend its contractual deadline for an Oct. 31 opening to March 1, 2014.


While several reasons for the delay are given, one we found particularly interesting was the explanation that the much of the needed repairs were caused by disgruntled workers, unhappy over lack of payment. Although I’ve heard no reports of the TVs going on when the toilets are flushed, guests should be advised to be on-guard during the hotel’s ‘breaking-in’ period.
******
It’s hard to believe that 15 years have passed since the opening of the high-end shopping mall in Palm Desert known as the Gardens on El Paseo. During this time, the Gardens have proven to be highly successful financially, but the lush outdoor landscaping has become overgrown, resulting less visibility for the stores that had become hidden by the accumulated growth of bushes and trees.


So, the Gardens are undergoing a user-friendly upgrade and opening up of the shopping arcade. After all, it may be called the “Gardens,” but it’s all about the retail.


The work, scheduled for completion by November, will include a pedestrian bridge with room for sitting, linking Tiffany and Co. and Louis Vuitton. Shopping doesn’t get any better than that; buy the bling and the bag to carry it home in. For those who can’t, it will truly be the  “Bridge of Sighs.”
******


Just when you think he can’t do any better, Michael Childers surprises.


For the past few years, Childers, a world-renowned celebrity photographer, has used his contacts and talent to produce an evening of pure entertainment benefiting the non-sectarian work of Jewish Family Services of the Desert.


Known as “One Night Only” the performances bring together more than two-dozen Broadway entertainers who each perform one number in the show.


Next year’s show, which will be April 23 at the McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert, is billed as “Tradition – The Jewish Legacy of Broadway” and is a tuneful journey of how the musicals we are familiar with came from the origins of Yiddish Theater and Tin Pan Alley more than 100 years ago, as illustrated by the works of the great Jewish composers and stars of the period, from Gershwin and Berlin to Schwartz and Sondheim to Fanny Brice and Barbara Streisand, Danny Kaye, Joel Grey and Al Jolson.


Tickets for this not-to-be-missed evening are available from the McCallum Theatre, 760-346-6505.

Would You Buy A $33,000 Rolex Watch From Sears?
By Mary Beth Quirk July 24, 2013
This sells on Marketplace for $32,995.00


watches When you shop at Sears, what are you looking for, usually? Some kind of appliance, a set of tools, perhaps a lingering sense of dissatisfaction for the whole retail experience, that kind of thing. As for designer handbags and flashy watches that cost more than the annual salary of many Sears shoppers? That’s not the usual fare. Not anymore: Bring on the $33,000 Rolex watches and the $4,000 designer purses, says Sears CEO Eddie Lampert, issuing instructions from his Florida bastion.


cheap watches sale Like some kind of fever dream one might have after watching  Pretty Woman too many times, Lampert has this grand idea in 2010 that Sears should take a step away from its not-so-tried-and-true model of selling home goods and clothing at reasonable prices and aim for the luxurious stars. To that end, he’s apparently been pushing for more upscale items on Sears’ Marketplace site, to join the common fare like tools and non-designer clothing.


Fake Rolex Watches A Sears spokesman tells the Wall Street Journal that the idea (Lampert’s) behind Marketplace was to offer the “best and widest assortment for our members,” and the company remains focused on shaping up its bricks and mortar stores. “Since 2011, Sears Holdings has invested millions of dollars equipping our stores with technology” like iPads, the spokesman said.


buy discount watches Sears’ Marketplace teams up the retailer with sellers who have luxury goods to offload and the buyers who want to pick them up. In essence, it works like Amazon or eBay, with Sears acting as the third party in a transaction.


Cheap Rolex Watches But some customers are already wary when confronted with the pairing of Sears + luxury items, it seems, with shoppers questioning whether or not goods are counterfeit after landing on the Marketplace page from an Internet search. At which point they ostensibly mutter, “Wait… what? Where am I?”


cheap watches sale It’s not like this is the first harebrained scheme Sears has come up with, and its likely not going to be the last. But whether or not this will work to improve Sears’ image or bring in more customers… Well, we can’t see the future but we’re very familiar with the past, which includes a large number of our very own readers who have turned against the company.


What say you?


* Thanks for the tip, RG!
