Michelle Obama Breaks Her Silence About the Night Donald Trump Was Elected: ‘I Went to Bed’

President Obama and the First Lady open up about their life together and last days in the White House. Subscribe now to get instant access to this exclusive interview plus the events and people that shaped 2016, only in PEOPLE!

As many Americans waited into the wee hours of election night to find out who would be voted the nation’s next president, First Lady Michelle Obama says she was not among them.

Instead, she was fast asleep in her White House bed.

In a joint interview with President Barack Obama for this week’s PEOPLE cover story, the first lady breaks her silence on President-elect Donald Trump‘s stunning victory, and reveals why she didn’t stay up to see the results.

“I went to bed. I don’t like to watch the political discourse; I never have,” Obama tells PEOPLE, adding of her husband, “I barely did with him.”

The first lady was one of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton‘s most powerful surrogates on the campaign trail, where she delivered passionate speeches about the dangers of electing Trump, being careful all the while to avoid mentioning him by name.

 

Watch the full episode of People at the White House: The Final Interview here now on the new People/Entertainment Weekly Network (PEN). Go to PEOPLE.com/PEN, or download the PEN app on Apple TV, Roku Players, Amazon Fire TV, Xumo, Chromecast, iOS and Android devices. To read more on the Obamas’ interview, pick up this week’s issue of PEOPLE on newsstands Friday

Her now-famous mantra, “When they go low, we go high,” delivered at the Democratic National Convention in July, moved audiences and became an unofficial slogan for Clinton’s campaign.

“Anything that I felt about the election I said and I stand by,” the first lady says now, adding of her early election night, “Once you do what you can do, then the rest is easy. It was in the hands of the American people.”

 

Though the first lady stands by her campaign-trail criticisms of Trump, she, like her husband, is prepared to help the president-elect as he transitions to the White House.

“This is our democracy, and this is how it works,” she says. “We are ready to work with the next administration and make sure they are as successful as they can be. Because that’s what’s best for this country.”

Japanese Mountaineer Becomes Uniqlo’s First Female Ambassador

Marin Minamiya, the youngest Japanese person to ever summit Mount Everest, has broken another barrier: she has become Uniqlo’s first female global ambassador. It has taken the Japanese brand a while to end its streak of all-male brand emissaries, including tennis stars Novak Djokovic and Kei Nishikori.
Minamiya, 19, is currently enrolled in the school of political science and economics at Waseda University, which is also the alma mater of Tadashi Yanai, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Uniqlo’s corporate parent Fast Retailing.
Yanai told WWD last year that he was looking for a female to join the ranks, but hadn’t yet found someone whose values and personality matched those of the brand.
“It’s not just about achievements,” Yanai said last year. “In addition to being at the top of their sports, our ambassadors are all gentlemen, so a female ambassador should be a lady.”
Uniqlo signed on Djokovic as an ambassador in 2012. Nishikori, golfer Adam Scott and wheelchair tennis champion Shingo Kunieda are all under contract with Uniqlo to represent the brand.
Minamiya trekked up Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak, in May. She said she has long been a fan of the fast-fashion brand’s functional basics.

Tadashi Shoji Pre-Fall 2017

As a trained artist, Tadashi Shoji consistently draws inspiration from artwork each season, translating the ideas of specific works into his collections. The vivid hues in his pre-fall lineup centered on a painting of Marthe de Florian by Giovanni Boldini. Not only did Marthe serve as Shoji’s muse, filtering his latest lineup of day and evening dresses with Victoriana elements, but the painting itself informed the soft color palette.
A stained-glass motif also provided a punch of bold floral prints and play on color combos. The strongest looks linked to these motifs included a black lace gown with sheer blouson sleeves, and a couple of poppy yellow dresses with an emphasis on the waist without being too corseted. The collection appeared to emphasize Shoji’s focus on driving a younger consumer. Flirty baby-doll dresses — one in an airy pastel pink, another in a blue floral print with a deep V-neck — screamed happy and young. Ruffle details and a bit of sensuality with cut-outs and sheer fabrics hammered that point home.

Inaugural Paris Summit Debates Economic Models, Creative Challenges

PARIS — For any city looking to dethrone Paris as the capital of fashion, think again. That was the message from speakers at the inaugural edition of the Forum de la Mode here on Dec. 6, an initiative backed by France’s Ministries of Culture and Industries.
Participants  in five round tables throughout the day included Hermès International executive vice president of manufacturing and equity investments Guillaume de Seynes; the director of Christian Dior’s couture ateliers, Maurizio Liotti; ANDAM founder Nathalie Dufour; and designer Simon Porte Jacquemus. Themes included economic models and the creative scene.
Supported by the Fédération Française de la Couture, du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers et des Créateurs de Mode and the Fédération Française du Prêt à Porter Féminin, the event allowed stake holders to hash out hot industry topics including the evolving omnichannel retail landscape and international development. The event was one of the recommendations of socialist politician Lyne Cohen-Solal’s report into France’s fashion industry, published last December.
“This forum will allow us to exchange on challenges facing the industry. As Alber Elbaz said when I awarded him the Legion of Honor recently: ‘Fashion should be a mix of technique and story.’ We can add to that training, financing, eco-systems….,” said Audrey Azoulay, France’s

Home Near Prince’s Estate Turns Christmas Lights Into ‘Purple Rain’ Tribute

A Minnesota home not far from Prince’s famed Paisley Park estate is paying tribute to the Purple One… with some purple lights. 

The Staudt family home in Chaska, known for its annual display, is showing a special “Purple Rain” light show as an intermission between sets of mostly Christmas music:

Prince’s passing meant so much to our community that we decided to do a short dedication during the intermission of our Christmas light show to honor him,” Mike Staudt told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “We’ve received compliments on this part of our show and a few people have even mention it made them teary-eyed.”

Prince died in April at the age of 57.

Check out the “Lights on Pascolo” intermission tribute to Prince above, and the full show ― which runs nearly 15 minutes ― below:

Do You Need a Coach or Therapist?

Coaches and therapists often overlap in what they offer clients. Understanding how they differ and articulating what you need can help you decide if coaching or therapy is better for you.

2016-11-30-1480540718-4221862-omega_institute_life_coaching_therapy.jpg

There are times in life when you need something more than the support of friends and family. Perhaps you want help to break a habit or meet a goal. Or maybe you want to examine and resolve deeply personal issues with someone who will listen to you without judgment.

Whatever your motivation, it can help to talk to a professional. A UCLA study showed that when you verbalize your feelings, it makes them less intense. But who should you talk to? Would a life coach or a therapist be more appropriate?

Coaches are useful for people looking to reach a specific goal or break a habit, often in a particular area, like health or career. Therapists generally address long-term emotional issues or problems, like trauma, addiction, anxiety, and depression. But these are generalities, and often a therapist may act as a coach and a coach may offer therapeutic support. The best thing you can do is get clear on your needs and goals and then do the research to find the right coach or therapist for you.

Do You Need to Climb Out of a Hole or Climb a Mountain?
The Differences Between Therapy & Coaching

In the book Coaching for Transformation, coaching is defined as “a partnership that maximizes human potential.” Coaches focus on “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential,” according to the International Coach Federation (ICF), the oldest and largest professional coaching organization. This description also fits for most therapists, too.

The American Psychological Association defines a therapist as someone who “provides a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who is objective, neutral, and nonjudgmental.” Which is also true of most coaches.

Richard Michaels, a Gestalt therapist and a life and executive coach, says that while both modalities “work to increase awareness: self-awareness, self-understanding, and emotional awareness…. The role of the client is more active [in coaching]. In therapy, you have more interpretation of what’s going on and more focus on your family of origin.” He describes many of his clients as high-functioning individuals who are ready to go deeper in some part of their life.

Madhu Maron, a human resources professional who now works as a life coach, says, “The [coaching] client is really longing for a change–[they have] a persistent deep, important longing,” she says. “It’s something like, I want to be healthier, get a new job, or have a better relationship. They can be very effective in certain parts of their lives, but not effective in this one area.”

Therapist and life coach Lisa Marie Bobby explains the difference this way: if you are dealing with depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, emotional issues, or other problems that leave you feeling trapped in a hole, a therapist is probably the best person to help you climb out of it. Once you’re out of the hole and on level ground, a coach can help you climb whatever mountain you wish to climb, usually in an effort to improve your circumstances or have greater success in areas like career, relationships, or health.

Vetting a Coach or Therapist
Do Your Homework & Get Surprisingly Fast Results

Once you’ve identified if you need help getting out of the hole or are ready to climb a mountain, you’ll probably want to do some research and interview potential therapists and coaches to find someone who offers what you need. There are a wide range of therapies and coaching practices–being an informed client and asking questions up front to find the best match will save you a lot of time and money.

There are hundreds of styles of therapy, so if you don’t have the time or inclination to explore the options, you might begin with an online directory to find therapists near you or ask friends for recommendations.

Therapists refer to themselves in many different ways. To be a psychologist, psychoanalyst, psychiatrist, or social worker requires an advanced degree, and these titles are regulated. If someone is calling themselves by one of these titles, you know they have received at least a master’s degree and passed licensing requirements.

The titles “therapist,” “counselor,” and “psychotherapist” are not regulated and don’t require a license. This doesn’t mean all therapists are unlicensed; many of them are. It just means anyone can call themselves a therapist, so you may need to investigate someone’s credentials if they’re billing themselves as one.

Life coaches are not required to have any training. Many coaches complete training programs, and groups like the International Coaching Federation are working to standardize credentials in the field, but currently anyone can call themselves a coach.

To find a coach, begin with an online search for coaches who focus on the area you want to address. Ask friends and colleagues for recommendations. Most coaches (and many therapists) work remotely with clients via phone or Skype, so location is not necessarily an issue.

Whether you decide on therapy or coaching, results often come relatively quickly. One study found that most people feel better with about 10 therapy sessions, while another said that 88 percent of therapy participants reported improvements after one visit. So while it may take you some time to find the right coach or therapist, once you do you’re likely to notice changes fast.

Gain the skills, knowledge, and inspiration you need to become a professional coach with this 10-month certification program.

3 Ways To Hack Your Environment To Help You Create

This article first appeared on QuietRev.com

This is the first article in Quiet Revolution’s two-part series on seeking creativity. Check out this space next week to learn about different techniques that make your mind more likely to generate creative thoughts.

Much of our creativity is tied up in our intrinsic natures as introverts or extroverts, and the ways we interact with our environment is uniquely dependent upon our temperaments.

According to The Atlantic, the great film director Ingmar Bergman spent the last 25 years of his life living on a small island in Sweden to eliminate chaos from his life. There, “…he would plan his films, write the scripts, [and] make the screenboards… He limited his activities: Besides working and thinking, he might go for a stroll. … In the late afternoon or evening, he would have visitors over to go and look at a movie in his cinema. And that was his routine, every day. He didn’t try to do more.”

Bergman wrote in a journal every day, and one day he wrote, “Here, in my solitude, I have the feeling that I contain too much humanity.”

Dorthe Nors reflected that “it is the job of the artist to sit with our feelings, to be receptive to them, to examine them, turn them into narrative or paint or film.” The act of creation is often synonymous with making opportunities for solitude, generating this overwhelming sense of humanity, and pouring it out on the page or the canvas.

The act of creation can be difficult. It requires good routines, inspiration, and surroundings. It’s especially important for introverts to pay attention to their environments and carefully cultivate creative spaces.

We’ve rounded up three of the best strategies for blocking out external demands and distractions to create time for inner stimulation.

1. Twyla Tharp’s bubble

In her book The Creative Habit, the world-renowned choreographer Twyla Tharp writes that the ideal creative state—she calls “The Bubble”—is constructed and controlled. It’s “one where creativity becomes a self-perpetuating habit.” 

Tharp details the ways many other creatives construct bubbles, including novelist Philip Roth, who “lives alone in the country and works seven days a week, waking early and walking to a two-room studio fifty yards from his house… Near his desk he keeps two small signs, one reading ‘Stay Put,’ the other ‘No Optional Striving.’ [These are] reminders to avoid the temptation of anything other than the five essentials: food, writing, exercise, sleep, and solitude.”

Creating a bubble for yourself doesn’t have to be as extreme as Tharp’s or Roth’s—a bubble can also be a state of mind. Take stock of what you could subtract from your life. How can you adopt a more monastic mental state? Even when you’re amid chaos or traveling, you can still create a bubble for yourself and your creative work.

Try this theory in your life: How can you pare your life down to the minimum number of moving parts? What isn’t adding to your creativity? What can you say no to?

2. IDEO and Intel’s restorative time

IDEO designers frequently work on 10-12-week projects requiring intense teamwork. After a project wraps, the team is often wiped. But introverts can be especially burned out since they’ve most likely been working in a small project space with several other team members for weeks on end—not an optimal introvert environment.

But IDEO realizes that its success as a creative firm comes from its employees remaining inspired, so if the project calendar allows for it, designers are encouraged to take a few hours or a day off between projects. IDEOers use this time as a chance to rest. Once they’ve restored their energy, they use the time to get re-inspired.

Some IDEO teams actually build time for inspiration into their weekly work. One project team in New York used every Friday morning to get inspired together by taking trips to a museum or working outdoors.

Other offices structure this downtime into every working week. According to the New York Times, Intel “experimented in 2007 with conferring four uninterrupted hours of quiet time every Tuesday morning on 300 engineers and managers.” This pilot group loved it so much that the practice was extended to the rest of the company.

Jason Fried, co-founder and CEO of Basecamp (formerly known as 37Signals) is an introvert, and he’s structured his entire company around quiet time. In his bookRework, he urges creatives to remember that “every minute you avoid spending in a meeting is a minute you can get real work done instead.”

Try this theory in your life: Make a case at your office for days off after projects, quiet time, or no-meeting zones. Even if you can’t work remotely, you can build an argument for solitude at work.

3. Mihály Csíkszentmihályi’s theory on creativity and flow

It’s easy to forget that we have an innate capacity to know what being creative feels like. When we’re in an optimal state for creativity, we’re in a state of flow—we’re completely absorbed in an activity.

Positive psychologist Mihály Csíkszentmihályi describes flow as a state when “we feel totally involved, lost in a seemingly effortless performance. Paradoxically, we feel 100% perfectly alive when we are so committed to the task at hand that we lose track of time, of our interests—even our own existence.”

So, why is it so hard to remember that doing excellent, creative work should feel good? Perhaps because it is increasingly hard to find moments of flow within our modern work environments. Mihály Csíkszentmihályi writes, “Few things in life are as enjoyable as when we concentrate on a difficult task, using all our skills, knowing what has to be done.”

Studies show that for most of us, flow occurs more often when we are engaging in work activities, not in leisure activities. But how can we ensure that we actually have the capacity to enter flow at work?

First, Csíkszentmihályi says we need jobs that provide “clear goals, immediate feedback, and a level of challenges matching our skill.” We also need an environment that will allow us to become wholly engaged in activities. This means having a sense of control with few distractions. For us introverts, this means longer stretches of interrupted work time, a quiet environment, and a community around us we know and trust. The thirdkey to finding flow is to work on something that you have intrinsic motivation for.

As Harvard Business Review reports, one CEO started using Csíkszentmihályi’s theories to help his employees find flow. His techniques included “allowing people to switch off email, fewer meetings, and focusing on smaller chunks of work.” This was particularly effective because the whole organization made the change.

Try this theory in your life: As you go through your day, notice the moments when you enter periods of flow. Identify what types of work and environments let this flow flourish. Try to maximize your time spent on these types of activities and in these environments.

As Kurt Vonnegut wrote,

“Many people need desperately to receive this message: I feel and think much as you do, care about many of the things you care about, although most people do not care about them. You are not alone.”

The product of solitude—namely the humanity that’s put on paper—can inspire, delight, and provide great comfort. And anyone who has created or been moved by art would agree that the challenge and pain of seeking solitude and translating to the page is well worth it.

Amy Schumer Responds To Critics Who Say She Shouldn’t Play Barbie

To Amy Schumer, backlash over news that she might just take the lead in an upcoming live-action “Barbie” movie shows just how right she is for the role.

The Grammy-nominated comedian wrote an Instagram post Tuesday explaining why she’s glad to have the chance to play an “important and evolving icon.” After hearing Twitter commenters doubt her fitness for the part of a blonde doll, primarily due to her body type, Schumer shared a lengthy message that was in part aimed at her detractors.

“I want to thank them for making it so evident that I am a great choice,” the comic wrote. “It’s that kind of response that let’s you know something’s wrong with our culture and we all need to work together to change it.”

Schumer has been vocal in the past about her (perfectly healthy and normal) body. In her note, she asked, “Is it fat shaming if you know you’re not fat and have zero shame in your game? I don’t think so.”

A photo posted by @amyschumer on

Read her full note below:

Very very honored to be nominated for 2 Grammys and to be considered to play an important and evolving icon. Is it fat shaming if you know you’re not fat and have zero shame in your game? I don’t think so. I am strong and proud of how I live my life and say what I mean and fight for what I believe in and I have a blast doing it with the people I love. Where’s the shame? It’s not there. It’s an illusion. When I look in the mirror I know who I am. Im a great friend, sister, daughter and girlfriend. I’m a badass comic headlining arenas all over the world and making tv and movies and writing books where I lay it all out there and I’m fearless like you can be. Thanks to everyone for the kind words and support and again my deepest sympathy goes out to the trolls who are in more pain than we will ever understand. I want to thank them for making it so evident that I am a great choice. It’s that kind of response that let’s you know something’s wrong with our culture and we all need to work together to change it. Anyone who has ever been bullied or felt bad about yourself I am out there fighting for you, for us. And I want you to fight for yourself too! We need to laugh at the haters and sympathize with them. They can scream as loud as they want. We can’t hear them because we are getting shit done. I am proud to lead by example. “I say if I’m beautiful, I say if I’m strong. You will not determine my story. I will.”

While Sony has a “Barbie” script, The Hollywood Reporter states that Schumer will likely rewrite it with her sister and “Trainwreck” screenwriting partner, Kim Caramele. 

The movie will reportedly follow Barbie’s adventure through the real world after being expelled from Barbieland, a la “Enchanted,” but with more of a comment on gender and femininity in the present day. A release date has not been set.

Modelling, Robustness and Sensitivity Reduction in Control Systems

Modelling, Robustness and Sensitivity Reduction in Control Systems


Historically, one of the basic issues in control systems design has been robustness: the ability of a controlled plant to withstand variations in or lack of knowledge of its dynamics. Even if the dynamics of a system are accurately known for purposes of implementation, it is often desirable to design a control system based on a simplified model. Consequently it is essential to be able to guarantee a reasonable performance not only for the nominal plant, but also for its neighbouring perturbations: this is the issue of robustness. Since the beginning of this decade major advances have been made in this area, notably using the H -approach; this term is meant to cover the solution of sensitivity reduction, approximation and model reduction, robustness and related control design problems using the mathematics of Hardy spaces and related areas in Harmonic Analysis. This book contains the proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on “Modelling, Robustness and Sensitivity Reduction in Control Systems”, which was held at the University of Groningen, December 1986. Its aim was to explore the development of H -design techniques and its ramifications in Systems Theory in a unified and systematic way with the emphasis on recent advances and future directions in this fast developing area. In particular the following inter-related aspects were addressed: H -mathematical foundations, model approximation and robustness in control design, optimal sensitivity reduction, modelling and system identification and signal processing.

The World of Jennie G.

The World of Jennie G.


When Jennie Gilchrist fled from the Scottish Estate of Linnmore during the fiery violence of the infamous Highland Clearances, she planned to make her way to her sisters in England, but instead she found herself sailing on the brig Paul Revere, bound for the coast of Maine-the New World. Accompanying her is Alick Gilchrist, cousin to her late husband, now a fugitive. Jennie feels obligated to help Alick escape Scotland, as she is partly to blame for his outlaw status. SInce the sponsor of the trip requires that all immigrant men aboard the Paul Revere be married, Jennie sails as Alick’s “wife”, the pair traveling under an assumed name, with little aside from the clothes that they wear. They arrive at the small but thriving town of Maddox on the newly settled Maine coast, unlike any place they have known before. They immediately set to building a new life for themselves-Alick building boats, and Jennie teaching the well-to-do MacKenzie children-but while Alick is fixing to live out his days on American soil, Jennie is biding her time and saving money for the passage back to England. But unforeseen events derail her plans, not the least of which is her bond with the inscrutable Alick Glenroy.

Rogue One Director on Whether He’d Make More Star Wars

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story director Gareth Edwards would be interested in making another Star Wars movie, but this time about Obi-Wan Kenobi.

While doing a one-on-one interview with IGN at the Rogue One junket this weekend, Edwards was asked whether he’d consider coming back and doing a completely different Star Wars film from Rogue One. Though Edwards is open to the idea, he still wants new directors to take on the Star Wars universe.

“It’s nearly impossible for me to say no, I would never ever do Star Wars ever again but I sort of feel like you know, I’ve won the lottery in terms of cinema,” Edwards told IGN. “The most unfair thing you can do with the lottery winning is go buy more lottery tickets. It’s like, you’ve got to let other people.”

Jimmy Kimmel Reveals Baby No. 2 on the Way with Wife Molly McNearey

2017 just keeps looking better and better for Jimmy Kimmel: He’s going to be a dad again!

The late night host’s wife Molly McNearey is pregnant with their second child together, Kimmel announced on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday evening.

Kimmel, who also revealed Monday that he will host the 89th Academy Awards ceremony in February, told audiences, “Also, my wife, is hosting a baby inside her body. So that’s what’s coming.”

“We got the ultrasound — which is weird because it’s like you’re already spying on the baby — but we asked the technician not to tell us whether we’re having a boy or a girl. Our plan is to let the child decide for itself,” Kimmel, 49, said. “We want that to be a surprise, but I have been trying to think of names that would work for a boy or girl. So far, I’ve come up with two: No. 1 Dyson after the vacuum or Gelatin with a J. No? That’s exactly what my wife said.”

He quipped, “So — there’s a lot of exciting stuff going on. Congratulations to me. I’m hosting the Oscars and I had sex. Two things as a teenage boy I never thought would be possible.”

The new addition will join big sister Jane, the couple’s 2-year-old daughter. Kimmel also has an adult son and daughter from his first marriage: Katie and Kevin.

Kimmel told PEOPLE last year that fatherhood is “really great.”

And despite having initial jitters about being the father of a little kid again, Kimmel said, “It does add a little bit of joy to each day. Maybe more than a little bit.”

Todd Snyder Opens New York Flagship

Todd Snyder is putting a stake in the ground in New York.
The men’s wear designer today will open the doors to his first American flagship, a 4,500-square-foot store at 25 Madison Square North at 26th Street. The shop, right off Madison Avenue, will offer a curated assortment of Snyder’s tailored clothing and sportswear and will include pieces from his myriad collaborations with brands as varied as Champion and Globe Trotter. It will also offer a coffee shop/bar, a barbershop and an optical boutique.
“I didn’t want to open just another retail store,” Snyder said during an exclusive walk-through on Monday. “This store is all about interacting with the customer and providing a unique experience.”
He said most men remain “intimidated by shopping,” so the store is designed to “tear down the barriers” and make them comfortable.
“It’s not just a clothing store,” Snyder stressed. “It’s a great place to come for a seasonal wardrobe upgrade with a personal stylist, to get fitted for your next suit while enjoying an espresso or a beer, or to hang out with friends while getting a haircut and a shave.” The store was designed by Snyder in collaboration with James Mills.

“Since I launched, I have always been inspired by interiors,” said Adam Lippes, as he was showing his pre-fall collection. This time around, it was great Victorian rooms: the animal prints, the velvets, the murals on the walls.
Take, for instance, a silk burnout velvet with Lurex metallic jacquard leopard shirtdress, or a landscape mural jacquard miniskirt, both of which exuded Lippes’ maximalist premise with the contemporary ease for which his collections are known.
On the other side of the spectrum, which Lippes refers to as “ath-luxury,” he offered elevated versions of ath-leisure. Standouts included a silk cashmere sweatsuit with leg o’ mutton sleeves and a silky velvet pajamalike racer-back and trousers.

Julia Restoin Roitfeld Unveils Le Marché Bleu Holiday Pop-up

JE NE SAIS QUOI: Julia Restoin Roitfeld is adding another slash to her name: curator. The “It” girl, creative director of Didier and founder of Romy and the Bunnies will add a distinctively French flair to Le Marché Bleu, a new holiday market slated to open to the public on Dec. 10 and 11. The two-day pop-up shop, produced by Grey Goose, will be located in SoHo at 64 Wooster Street.
Restoin Roitfeld curated the shop’s inventory, which will feature an assortment of French delicacies, several of which cannot be found in the U.S. — think hot chocolate from Angelina cafe in Paris; Pierre Hermé macarons, an Alain Ducasse advent calendar, Astier de Villatte cuff links and a selection of Scarlett Johansson’s “Yummy Pop” from the new popcorn shop the actress opened in Paris’ Marais district. “I still have such deep ties to France and love incorporating it in my work,” Restoin Roitfeld said of the partnership.
Other, more fashion-centric items include Cire Trudon candles, an Olympia Le-Tan clutch, Armor Lux slippers, Smythson notebooks, and a Yves Delorme cashmere blanket in addition to Grey Goose spirits and drinkware.
Restoin Roitfeld will be heading home for the holidays, but when she’s missing home, she

Seth Meyers: Trump’s Foreign Policy Is ‘Let’s Piss Them Off, See What Happens’

What does President-elect Donald Trump’s history of making false statements have in common with his approach to foreign policy? A problematic relationship with facts, as Seth Meyers put it Monday night.

The “Late Night” host took a closer look at Trump’s phone conversation with Taiwan president Tsai Ying-wen, a decision that enraged China, which claims sovereignty over the island. Beijing lodged a diplomatic petition Saturday over his actions.

“Whatever your thoughts are on China, it’s a delicate, important relationship … so any action that China might see as as provocative should be done only after a long period of careful study and consideration,” Meyers said. 

“Or if you’re Trump, you could just say, ‘Screw it. Let’s piss them off right away, see what happens.’”

Meyers’ characterization was said in jest, but it actually echoes comments that Trump economic adviser Stephen Moore seriously made on Monday.

If China doesn’t like it, screw ’em,” Moore told the hosts of the Big John and Ray radio show, according to CNN.

“We gotta stand by Taiwan,” he continued. “We see what’s happening in China with the way they’re saber-rattling out there in the East, and it’s about time we do what Reagan did: We stand up to these bullies and say we’re not gonna let you do this.”

Whom To Listen To and When

In April of (2008), I spent two weeks in India following a meditation guru from town to town.

This was my fourth visit to India, but I consider it my first real one. The other three were too touristy. Two were lecture tours, and I stayed in the best hotels, with warm water and the most excellent services money can buy. The third was for a Maha Kumba Mella, which is a gathering of Hindus on the Ganges River every 144 years. Sidhus descend from their caves in the Himalayas, and while it was an interesting experience to see them, it was not day-to-day India.

This time it was different. I slept in an ashram, was driven from town to town in terrible traffic, ate with Indians on the floor, and meditated with them. At my age (71), it was not an easy experience, but the guru was older (80-something) and he held on well, so who am I to complain?

What did I learn?

The meditation I was practicing is called sahaj marg, which means “the natural way.” The practice is to focus on the heart. No mantra, no focusing on the breath or on a candle or whatever, just listen to the heart by slowing down the mind.

I joined this type of practice because I believed I needed it. First, being Jewish, I spend most of my time in my head, and it needed some rest. Second, because I saw my dearest relatives and friends sent to their deaths during World War II, my heart has been closed all these years and it needed opening.
What does it mean to “listen to the heart?” How do you know, when you meditate, which thoughts are of the mind and which of the heart? Thoughts are thoughts, right?

No. There is a difference. You can argue with thoughts of the mind. You might toss and turn, and debate with yourself. But when your heart speaks, there is no argument. There is no discussion. There is no “Why?” or “Why not?” You are complete. You are at peace with yourself. The answer to the question “Why?” is “Because,” and that’s it.

That brought me to the next insight: If you really listen to your heart when you make a decision and your heart does not give you the answer, it means that you are not ready to finalize your decision. This is a case where it is better not to make a decision at that point in time.

That brought me to an interesting conclusion: When you decide with your heart, you cannot make a mistake.

Why?

Well, what is a mistake? It is always a conclusion you come to after the fact, right? It is a feeling of remorse and a judgment that you should have decided differently. It leads to self-accusations: that perhaps you did not deliberate enough, that you did not listen to advice, that you ignored facts, etc. All this is in your head.

When you make a decision with your heart, you are at peace with yourself. If, after the fact, you discover that your decision did not work out as you expected, you can not feel remorse because at the time you made the decision you had no doubts as to what to do, therefore you could not have done better. The fact that it did not work out is now only of academic interest. You can analyze what can be learned from what happened, but there is no place for remorse. You were at peace when you decided, and that was it.

Coming to this peace of mind when you decide with your heart is not a logical conclusion that you have reached after endless debates, internally or with others. It is beyond logic. It gives you a sense of completion, of integration, that almost defies logic. That is how you should feel when you decide to get married. That decision should be made with all your heart, not as a result of analyzing the cost-value relationship or an optimization model. When you make a decision with all your heart, as is the usual expression, you have the feeling of being integrated with your decision totally, wholly–maybe even holy. Mind, body, emotions, and spirit all feel at peace, united.

How does one come to such peace–usually we say “peace of mind,” though it would be more accurate to say “peace of the total body ” which is really peace of the heart–especially if there is a difficult decision to be made? You can do it by meditating. When you meditate you do not get attached to thoughts. Thus, you do not get into endless arguments with yourself. Instead, the decision eventually and automatically emerges as an insight.

If that description leaves you wondering how this insight can happen, let me share with you a story told to me by my one of my colleagues at UCLA, Professor Will McWhinney, that demonstrates this point. When McWhinney was a student at Yale, the fraternities held a contest for best choir. McWhinney’s fraternity had the worst voices at the university, except for one person whose voice was a pure, evangelical tenor. So they devised the following performance: The whole choir got on stage and began to sing where each person sang a different melody, which produced total cacophony. Then, slowly, one by one, each member of the choir stopped singing, except for the tenor, whose voice became stronger and stronger until it was alone, pure and crystal clear and totally enchanting. They won first prize.

This story is analogous to what happens in meditation. You have many voices in your head competing with each other. The more difficult the decision is, the more voices you hear, which can overwhelm you. When you meditate, the voices calm down one by one, while your heart’s voice grows stronger and stronger, until you simply “hear” the answer to your question and feel at peace with your decision.
But not only the head and heart think. We often say, “I have a gut feeling,” as if the gut is doing some decision processing.

That fact brought me to think in (PAEI) terms. The (A) processing is in the head. The (I) is processed by the heart. Where is (P) then? Sunil my associate suggested that if we follow the chakras, it is below the belly button, where our sexual organs are. Their role is survival of the species. That is where we feel instinctively. That is where the fight-or-flight reaction is processed: When we get scared we tighten the rectum, and the pelvic floor muscles.

Some people think with only one part of their body. Those who only react to their instincts are the (P)s: Act first, think later (if at all). Some do not listen to their instincts and use only their brain: These are the (A)s. Some people are only (E)s: all ideas and exciting priorities without considering what the repercussions of these ideas could be. And some people are all heart: They let their feelings for fellow humans or animals or whatever be the exclusive factor that determines their decision. These are the (I)s.

When a person processes information with all his faculties, the first one to respond to a new situation is the (P): His instincts of self preservation urge him to do something. Then the left mind, (A), gets activated: “Let’s think about it.” Next the right side of the brain gets involved, the (E), bringing new ideas to the table, while all along the heart, (I) is crying out, “Hey, listen to me too.”

To put it another way, instinctively you have the urge to do one thing, (P), but you think, (A), that it might not be prudent to do it, so new ideas, (E), come to mind, while you constantly check with yourself to see whether you feel at peace with the decision, (I). All these voices run through you at the same time. It is like a committee meeting where all the different styles compete with one another for attention. It’s a pure mess. Thus it’s not strange that when you have a really big problem to solve you get physically and emotionally exhausted. Your whole body hurts.

There is a difference between processing the (P), (A), (E), and (I) roles–between processing information with your instincts, mind, gut, or heart.

In processing (P), (A), and (E) roles you try to manage the process as best you can: You debate with your gut feelings, you challenge your instincts, and argue with your thoughts. When processing (P), (A), and (E) , you “talk” to the various parts of your body. You disagree with them. You may even get mad at them. It is as if you are the center and they are on the outskirts.

With the heart, (I), it is different. You do not argue with the heart, you listen to the heart. It is as if you subject yourself to something bigger, more powerful, than you. You are not the center any more. You say, “My heart tells me…” Compare that to what you say when you activate your mind: “I have to think it over.” Thinking it over, and over again, means that you are having a debate.

Now the weird stuff: Assume that “out there” is a cosmic, total, ultimate data warehouse. But it is not just data or knowledge, it is the ultimate wisdom based on values, the ultimate truth. It is endless, fixed energy with consciousness. (For me, that is God.) To connect to this cosmic energy you need to open your heart, to listen to your heart. It is as if the heart is the way to connect to God.

How do you hear the heart? How do you listen to it? Through meditation. Not through prayer. Prayer is like trying to manipulate God, pleading and begging him to act. If he does not listen to your prayer you might feel cheated, angry, and deceived.

When you pray, you talk to God. In meditation you listen to God. When you pray you make requests. Perhaps meekly, but no matter how nicely it is packaged and how much you are offering to “pay,” that is, what sacrifices you are willing to make, it is like a purchase order. When you meditate you listen to what God wants from you, not what you want from God. That is the difference.

Listen to your heart. That is where the truth is. Listen to the heart and you will not feel you made a mistake when you decide. If your heart is not ready to decide, you are not ready.

How should you make a decision then?

How should you decide? Here is the optimal path, the road less traveled. This is the lifecycle I suggested for organizations in my Managing Corporate Lifecycles book: Start with (I). Start with your heart first. Ask your heart first what is the right thing to do. Then go get some ideas about what to do, (E), but in doing so do not violate what your heart dictates. Then check those ideas to see if they make sense, (A), and finally be ready to act, (P) but first go back to the heart and check if you are at peace.
If more people would start with their heart and not with their penis, (P), maybe there would be less war, less divorce, less crime. Maybe we ought to teach meditation in prisons. Scientific tests of transcendental meditation have shown that when a certain percentage of people in a community meditate, there is less crime.

In yoga, they say that the mind is a terrorist. It often terrorizes our bodies, making us do things that are not good for us. I once saw a bumper sticker that said, “Do not always believe what you think.” For me this is profound because we Jews not only honor the mind, we worship the mind. With our Talmudic minds, we often complicate problems even when they are simple. We overdo and over-complicate our decision making, sometimes to the point that we cannot solve the problem. We do not listen to our instincts very well. In order to survive two thousand years of persecution, I wonder if we have not closed our hearts except to each other.

Just thinking

Gardar Eide Einarsson: The Violence Under the Surface

“I’ve lost the youthful naivetyé that leads me to think authorities should be torn down. I see it as an on-going negotiation.” Norweaygian- born Gardar Eide Einarsson who is now based in Tokyo, knows first-hand how different societies deal with authority.

Einarsson grew up in grew up in Norway in the 1970s and 80s, a time more focused on the utopias of community, and in which conflict was discussed less than it is today. He later moved to New York City, drawn to rebellious cultures as he always was. His work explores authority and the way it asserts itself through images: “”I’m attracted to images that have a falseness to them that reveals that the images are not 100 per cent believable,” he says.

In this video Einarsson presents an installation from 2016 consisting of found objects: blue lights from Tokyo’s Yamanote train line in Japan. The lights were installed at the train line to reduce the number of suicides as they are supposed to have a positive, comforting effect. Read more about this specific work here: nextcity.org/daily/entry/how-blue-lights-on-train-platforms-combat-tokyos-suicide-epidemic
The title of the Einarsson’s installation – ‘Distinct Functional Layers Help Establish Hierarchy and Order’ – is taken from Apple’s presentation of a new operating system (iOS7).

Gardar Eide Einarsson (b. 1976) is a Norwegian artist working in installation, printmaking, painting and sculpture. His work explores forms of social transgression and images for political subversion. His work has been shown worldwide and is held in the collections of the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, Oslo, Norway, Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Sweden, LACMA, Los Angeles and MoMA, New York, USA.

Gardar Eide Einarsson was interviewed by Christian Lund at Nils Stærk Gallery in Copenhagen in February 2016.

Style with a Conscience: “Orange Your Heart!” with SeeMe and Caterina Occhio

2016-12-06-1481019595-5315970-NicoleKidman.jpg

We may have marched on November 25th in support of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and we can find agreement to #bringbackourgirls when we tweet about the Nigerian students kidnapped by Boko Haram. And yes, we cry in horror when we hear of the Yazidi girls who are enslaved by the Islamic State. Yet the sad bottom line is that as fellow women, in less dramatic circumstances, we aren’t very good at helping each other. It’s the reason why we may never break the proverbial glass ceiling. We would rather keep fighting over who looks thinner or has a more desirable boyfriend than get together and work to make our collective future better. Sad but true.

Thankfully, there are women around like Caterina Occhio, the founder of jewelry company SeeMe. I knew she was one of the few women who emotionally nourish and physically help other women even before I got to meet her. Almost two years ago, a dear friend gifted me a handmade gilded heart on a long chain for Christmas, an item of fashion and beauty beyond words. As I wore that dangly, precious piece, I knew the person behind this creation had to be a woman — rather a Phenomenal Woman, as Maya Angelou would have called her.

It’s no accident that Occhio is a compatriot of mine. Italian women, and Southern Italian ones at that, at their best possess a combination of style, strength and sensual beauty that both mesmerize and get things done. And Occhio has taken her experience as a former development aid manager, with the European Commission and through different UN agencies, the SEED Foundation and more, to come up with a way to help women who are victims of domestic violence in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. SeeMe.org is the fruit of her labor, along with the work of many women in Tunisia where the fair trade verified brand’s designs are manufactured.

2016-12-06-1481019504-2474599-OrangeHeart_Banner.jpg

SeeMe partnered with the local AMAL (the arabic word for “hope”) program in Tunisia which has supported the socio-economic integration of disadvantaged women and women survivors of violence. SeeMe, with the support of AMAL, employs women so that with time it can enlarge its scope and become a bigger influence in the region as well as on the fair trade jewelry market.

Bigger sometimes does mean better, especially when it comes to helping women support their families.

2016-12-06-1481019638-121692-SuzyMenkesMiucciaPrada.jpg In the last few years SeeMe has worked with fashion houses such as Missoni, Tommy Hilfiger and Karl Lagerfeld to create capsule collections, or adding in details that help give work to the women. Occhio’s designs have been worn by style editor Suzy Menkes (seen in this photo, with Miuccia Prada), Angela and Rosita Missoni, Nicole Kidman and Laudomia Pucci. Oh, and yours truly of course!

This past April, to celebrate the 20th year anniversary of the United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence against Women, SeeMe partnered with the UN Trust Fund and created an “Orange Heart” necklace signature piece. Now Missoni, Pucci, Florentine shoe brand Aquazzura, Mulberry and Tommy Hilfiger teamed up with them and donated a sketch for their tote bag collection presented in Paris during SS17 pre-collection.

I caught up with the beautiful — inside and out — Caterina Occhio and asked her a few questions about the recent campaign, but also the meaning behind the brand and her impetus for starting it.

2016-12-06-1481019689-3337989-totebagsteaser.jpg

What is the inspiration behind the hearts of SeeMe?

Caterina Occhio: SeeMe was born while walking through the souks and back streets of the Middle East. After almost two decades of reporting on women’s conditions in the Middle East and North African regions I decided to take matters into my own hands. Through my reports and travels I, unsurprisingly, discovered that being a single mother in the region equals being unsuitable for work, for marriage and for society. SeeMe was therefore born as a safe haven, training centre and work place for women otherwise deemed lost.

Where and how are the hearts of SeeMe made?

Occhio: SeeMe jewelry is produced in the MENA region and it employs women, often single mothers, who have suffered violence and were ostracized from their communities. Through training SeeMe women learn the craft of jewellery making following ancient local techniques. Therefore, while fostering their region’s traditions they also secure a workplace for themselves and a future for their families.

Do you believe that fashion these days can be separated from sustainability? I mean, can a brand really survive without a message or a mission?

2016-12-06-1481019726-6797016-CaterinaOcchiobyGiovanniGastel.jpg Occhio: It can and it does. Unfortunately, the majority of consumers do not necessarily need a mission or message to buy an item they simply like. It is however true that more and more educated consumers want to know more about materials and production both in terms of sourcing of material and working conditions. It is a growing minority and that’s absolutely thrilling.

You’ve collaborated on some images with Nicole Kidman. What is that campaign about?

Occhio: At the beginning of 2016 UNTF to End Violence against Women selected our heart as symbol for their 20th anniversary. Knowing that the official color of the cause is orange, we have created a whole Orange Heart collection including two necklaces, bracelets, and a tote bag. The tote was made in collaboration with five designers (Missoni, Pucci, Aquazzura, Mulberry and Tommy Hilfiger) each donated a drawing around the idea of the Orange Heart. Nicole Kidman, UN Goodwill ambassador, is one of our first supporters and we couldn’t be more proud and honored.

And I’ve also noticed that you’ve collaborated with Karl Lagerfeld, Missoni and Tommy Hilfiger on a few items. How did those collaborations come about?

Occhio: When I created SeeMe I did not buy workshops, instead I helped build them and I never tied them to SeeMe. These workshops are independent, but SeeMe being Fair Trade Certified, they are too, plus they are very professional and the quality they produce is fantastic. I use this angle to appeal to well known fashion brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Missoni or Karl Lagerfeld… It goes something like, “I know an amazing producer that does amazing things, completely handmade, for a fair price and great quality. Plus they are fair trade certified!” And they love it! So I’d say that those came about through a mix of good PR, personal connections, interesting design and story as well as some luck…

What do you want the men and women who wear the brand to feel, along with just showing off the sheer beauty of the items?

Occhio: I’d love for them to feel good about themselves. But also to feel confident and stylish.

And if you had to describe yourself in three words, what would those be?

Occhio: Strong, daring, honest.

Stephen Colbert Skewers Donald Trump’s Defense Secretary Pick

Stephen Colbert gave Donald Trump some alternative suggestions Monday as to who should be his secretary of defense.

The president-elect has nominated retired Marine Gen. James “Mad Dog” Mattis to head up the Defense Department, but the “Late Show” host said Trump should opt for someone with a cuddlier sounding nickname.

 “A secretary of defense with the name ‘Mad Dog’ does not automatically make me feel safer,” Colbert said. 

“You’ve got a president with no experience of foreign policy with his finger on the button, and the other person in the room is a guy named ‘Mad Dog.’ That’s not a secretary of defense, that’s the sidekick on a morning zoo crew.”

Colbert’s alternative suggestions include Cool Cat Cuffington and General Willing To Project American Power But Surprisingly Rational About It Robinson. They sound like very huggable options to us.

Check it out in the clip above.
