The rich get richer: The “gift bag” given to this year’s Oscar nominees is already valued at $160,000—and still climbing. But what’s in it? And why is it worth so damn much when these celebs are already loaded?Lash Fary has the answers. He’s the C.E.O. of Distinctive Assets, the company that assembles the swag bag for nominees in the acting and directing categories (a.k.a. “the biggies”). The screenwriters and cinematographers don’t get superstar-level handouts. And an Amy Adams anecdote reveals why: “A few years ago, we included a T-shirt for a fitness company,” Fary says. The day after the Oscars, Adams was photographed wearing the shirt—a massive PR boon for that fitness company.“I’m surprised you didn’t hear the owner’s scream,” Fary jokes about his client’s reaction to Adams sporting the shirt. Fary says that sort of product exposure isn’t guaranteed. But if you … [Read more...] about Why This Year’s Oscar Nominees Are Taking Home Vibrators
After a 60-hour work week, you've earned the right to relax—as long as you're still keeping up with your basic grooming routine. Sundays are also your chance to shave a few minutes off your Monday morning by giving yourself a clean shave and grooming yourself into a state of zen.With 6 lines (each with a different scent profile), Rituals' 212 products are all inspired by an ancient story. The Amsterdam-based brand recently landed in Barneys and opened its 300th store (the first in the U.S.) at 231 Lafayette Street in New York City, bringing its East-meets-West approach to the States. It also has plans to open another location on Manhattan's Upper West Side and is currently in 170 luxury international Radisson hotels.Each product's natural ingredients are derived from Eastern rituals, and the brand prides itself in this methodology—starting with inspiration, not science. The Laughing Buddha collection, for example, has a mandarin scent meant to bring happiness just like the … [Read more...] about A New Option for a Fresh Face

I'm knocked out on an operating table and a robot is removing my prostate gland. In April I learned I had stage II prostate cancer, and after questioning experts and survivors, I've decided surgery is the way to go. Let's git 'er done. My mom died of cancer, but not me. No way. Now, almost 2 years later, I'm not going to say, "thank god they caught it in time ... I'm so blessed, each new morning is a miracle...Blah blah blah blah." No, what I'm thinking is more along the lines of: I want my prostate back. Your prostate gland labors in obscurity. The size of a golf ball, it's tucked away under your bladder, biding its time until you and your reproductive system decide to emit the sacred seed. Then the semen assembly … [Read more...] about I Want My Prostate Back
(Natural News) Two years ago, I exposed Forbes.com writer Jon Entine as a violent psychopath who physically attacked his wife and committed widespread journalistic fraud to push Monsanto propaganda.Under pressure for hiring such a reprobate, Forbes.com fired Entine, who has ties to conservative institutions like the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and George Mason University.Entine has a long history of literally fabricating false accusations against critics of Monsanto. During one “investigation” of a body care manufacturing company, he walked into their warehouse, knocked over bottles of their product, then called the authorities to report a dangerous spill to try to shut them down.Forbes.com and Jon Entine share a common philosophy of deep deception. Both are malicious journo-terrorists, and both take money from powerful corporate interests (like the biotech industry) to smear, slander and defame critics who threaten the profits of their corporate sponsors. In an … [Read more...] about Forbes.com hit piece on Natural News backfires: Health Ranger confirmed as world’s most powerful foe of corporate science fraud
Since the dawn of social media, employers of all types—including hospitals—have struggled with using it. Given that hospitals care for particularly sensitive data, and that one thoughtless tweet or Facebook post could expose that hospital to serious liabilities, it’s not surprising that as of mid-2013, only 26% of hospitals were using social media. But it’s becoming imperative that hospitals reach out via social media both to attract and retain patients. In a recent Spark Report survey, 41% of respondents said that social media would affect their choice of a specific doctor, hospital or medical facility. Organizations like the Mayo Clinic are already leveraging successful social media strategies to better serve patient needs. To build a strong social media presence, staff members and clinicians need to know a certain amount about social media and be coached carefully on how to add value to the hospital without … [Read more...] about 5 ways hospitals can leverage social media
The West Coast’s heart health couple have a new book under their trim belts and it’s inspiring people at midlife to get back to fitness and healthy eating. The message: burn at least 600 calories a day and eat lightly, but eat well. Sports medicine clinician Doug Clement and cookbook author and chef Diane have spent a lifetime motivating millions of readers to stay fit and eat healthy. Both were Olympic sprinters during their 20s and they have maintained their fitness level through a passion for track and field and the 10K fun run they founded in 1984–the Vancouver Sun Run. But Doug’s heart health came into question when an irregular heartbeat exploded into a full-blown stroke, and together the couple had to step back and reassess their eating choices. The result was the Chef on the Run series of heart-healthy cookbooks, which offer readers low-sodium and low-fat versions of favourite dishes. Their new book, Start Fresh (Whitecap, 2008), further reduces the … [Read more...] about Start Fresh
Two years ago when “eco-friendliness” began stuffing shelves everywhere, alive told readers about greenwash, an emerging marketing trend where corporations were greening up merely by saying so. Researchers had just wiped the sheen from 1,700 green claims in six big box stores and found only a single really clean one. The Canada/US study was done by TerraChoice, the Ottawa company that awards the EcoLogo certification on behalf of Environment Canada and helps manufacturers market green goods by using audited certifications consumers can rely on. Now TerraChoice has done a new study, apparently with better news. The better news Company president Scott McDougall says they found many more “green” products—73 percent more—on the market this time. He thinks it’s a sign that “consumer behaviour is changing the world for the better. Companies are only [going green] because consumers are demanding it.” But there’s also plenty … [Read more...] about Has Green Come Clean?
In 1975, the Wheel of Fortune spins for the first time. Microsoft is founded. The beaver becomes an official emblem of Canada. And another Canadian hallmark is born: alive magazine. Yesterday alive founder Siegfried Gursche—photographer, bookstore owner, and importer of natural health products—published the magazine for 30 years. “Siegfried … felt there was a massive gap [in] what consumers’ knowledge was regarding health products,” says current alive publisher Ryan Benn, who took over in 2005. “He thought the best way to educate consumers was to create a journal to distribute via health food stores that would educate customers on knowledge-based, interesting things about natural health.” Gursche conceived alive at a Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) meeting, where it was enthusiastically received. In the first issue of alive magazine, a forceful CHFA-affiliated manifesto was printed, declaring that Canadians had the right to … [Read more...] about Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow
