Peter Gerakaris at Bergdorf’s

You’re walking up fifth avenue and then bam! You get hit with all this color and not sure what it is you’re seeing. A mannequin in a crinkled Pucci dress with a hat-head in the center of a storm of honey combs, leaves, acid wash, and colors that take you for a spin. And at the bottom, a mirror absorbs all the images and confuses you even more.

It’s all this and more at Bergdorf Goodman’s window display by Peter Gerakaris at 58th street and fifth avenue in New York City. His display is titled “Rappaccini Origami Terrarium (Nocturnal View).” It’s a mixed media installation with origami sculpture, part of the new art installation “Art Matters!”

Kind of sounds like the name of an opera and so it is with a diva causing lots of drama in her own world spun with an explosion of origami. The center of this installation is calm like a tornado, but as you get towards the edges, the mayhem begins. Folded triangles cut into faces, honey combs bounce on top of each other, and then you think you figured it out and then wham, you didn’t.

Relationships: Why Do Some Breakups Hurt Men More Than Women?

In recent studies, men have been shown to suffer more than women when a relationship comes to an end. And while some people would not have been surprised to hear this, for others, it was unexpected and even dismissed.

Even though men have emotions just like women, this doesn’t always appear to be the case and they are often portrayed as having an inability to show emotions by women and the media. Men are often stoic and the emotions that they do express are often limited to a few emotions, such as: anger and frustration.

So what these studies have done is created awareness around the fact that although men don’t always show their emotions, it doesn’t mean that they don’t have them. And the reasons they don’t show them is partly due to the pressures that men face and what it generally means to be a man.

Roles

Times are changing and while a man has been seen as the provider for so long, this is a role that they are not always expected to play in today’s world. For when they played this role, they had to be seen as strong and unbreakable; as being immune to pain and to give of the impression that nothing ever affected them.

And as a man was expected to be this way, a woman had to play the role of being passive and weak. But, women have gradually been realising their power and the need for a provider is no longer as important as it used to be; simply because the chances are often there for women to provide for themselves.

Change

But while changes have been taking place, in regards to what it means to be a man and what it means to be a woman, the pressure to conform to the old roles is still there for people. For if ones identity is based on playing a certain role and this causes them to feel empowered for instance, there is naturally going to be resistance when it comes to change.

Even if these roles are dysfunctional and unhealthy, it doesn’t mean that one is simply going to let them go; especially if what they will have to let go of is seen being less than what they will end up with.

Labelled

And if a man was to show his emotions and not just the ones that are seen as acceptable, but their full range of emotions, there is going to be the chance that he will be labelled. This label is unlikely to be one that causes him to feel empowered.

What it could do is cause him to feel emasculated and that he will no longer be accepted or respected by others. And this will be seen as something that that could isolate him from other men and women.

Socially Acceptable

So it could be said that until men are seen as having emotions and that it’s acceptable for them to have them, there are going to be a lot of men who will continue suffer in silence. Just as there are women who feel the pressure to be passive and that they have to deny their personal power.

Acceptable

What is acceptable is for women to show their emotions and for men to repress them. This is generally what is classed as normal and yet just because something is normal, it doesn’t mean it is healthy.

And as a result of this, it is only natural that some women will handle breaks up differently to how some men do. Women can feel as though it’s okay for them to embrace their emotions, whereas men can come to the conclusion that they have to deny them and to pretend they don’t exist.

Consequences

So when one person feels comfortable with something, they are going to behave differently to someone who doesn’t feel the same. Women, through feeling comfortable with their emotions, usually have friends and family who they can open up to. Through them embracing their emotions, it can lead to their feelings being released instead of trapped in their body.

And as they can do this, they don’t have the same need to deny how they feel and to channel their feelings into something destructive. To see a woman upset is generally not going to have the same affect on people as it would if a man was upset.

Alternatively

As men don’t always feel comfortable with having emotions, there is less chance that they will have friends who they can open up to and they might not even reveal how they feel to their family. And as a man doesn’t embrace them, they can end up being trapped in their body.

So when they are not faced and the support is not there, their emotions can end up being repressed and channelled into things that are destructive. These could lead them to taking drugs, drinking alcohol or fighting, as a way to numb their pain.

Emotional Build Up

And if a woman has always felt comfortable with expressing her emotions, then she is unlikely to have an emotional build up. So when a relationships ends, there won’t be any emotional pain from the past to increase her present pain.

However, when it comes to a man who has repressed his emotions for most of his life; their present pain could end up being intensified through having repressed emotions triggered. Emotional pain from the break up and from many years of repression, could end up being overwhelming.

Generalisations

To say that all women are comfortable with their emotions and all men are not would be inaccurate. And yet women are expected to be in touch with how they feel and men are not.

Men not only have the right to express how they feel, they also need to. If a man wants to be emotionally healthy, then it is imperative that they change how they view their emotions and how they deal with them.

Awareness

This is why the assistance of a therapist, healer a coach can be so important. Through another’s assistance, one can gradually form a different relationship with their emotions. If a man is suffering emotionally, reaching out for support is the healthiest thing to do.

Dany Tabet, Brings A Regal Touch To The Runway At Nolcha Fashion Week

New York City transplant Dany Tabet, brought a touch of Lebanon’s regal, Middle Eastern, influences to this year’s Fall 2014 show during Nolcha Fashion Week, for a glamorous, high-class experience.

Please view our slideshow for each referenced look.

  1. Tabet brought a classic feel to his collection with a sleeveless gown, accented with gold, and blue encrusted jewels and a flowing royal blue ankle-length bottom.
  2. This cream, lace gown, evoked wedding themes and hints of innocence. The piece hugged the subject’s silhouette, perfectly accenting each curve, extending outward from the knees for a little flair. Of course, Tabet thought to include a delicate tail extending a few feet from the dress.
  3. MET Ball anyone? This long-sleeved, deep blue number, with thoughtful linear sequins, and carefully place layers of opaque and light materials, maintained a strong, yet demure feel, perfect for a gala.
  4. The only thing missing from this golden, brown piece was a few inches of length removed, a sequined head band with a light feather, extending, as this piece brought a 1920’s flapper feel to the runway.
  5. Golden figures, carefully positioned throughout this deep, red gown, formed a distinctive diamond shape. Of course the extensive, light trail, complimented the sweetheart -topped piece.
  6. This semi-Gothic gown, brought hints of edge to an otherwise angelic piece, with black, studded jewels along the waist, extending towards the hips. The veil and black lip were a fitting addition.

Mardi Gras Glamour

It’s a season of king cakes, parades, and purple, green, and gold. But let’s not forget the glitz and glamour galore! It wouldn’t be Mardi Gras without the glitz and glamour of the Mardi Gras Balls. Here are a few things to remember when preparing for your big night to standout in the crowd and dance the night away:

  1. You don’t have to stick to the traditional seasonal colors; add a punch of color and style with with vivid hues or soft pastels. Either way will have a huge impact.
  2. Be prepared with a change of shoes by putting a stylish pair of jeweled ballet flats in your clutch. Who says you can’t maintain comfort and style, even when you’re rocking out the night on the dance floor!
  3. Accessories can make all the different in completing an outfit. Glam it up with a fabulous pair of dangle earrings, a statement necklace or a great cuff. It’s your night to walk the red carpet.
  4. Give your makeup extra attention and staying power by using a lip primer before applying your favorite lip color. There’ll be no need for frequent touch-ups!
  5. Trying to figure out how to stay within budget and still have variety of looks that can be worn for the half dozen balls you’ll be attending in a 3-day period? Consider purchasing a two-piece set, such as a basic black skirt that can easily take on a new look with a quick change of the top. Very helpful to keep you in budget without having to repeat a look.
  6. Mardi Gras nights often can be quite cool, so remember to carry an evening shawl or sparkly bolero jacket that will complement your evening gown.
  7. Pay attention to small details; such as a signature style manicure that you can achieve yourself with the help of peel and stick nail art decor. Everyone will think it was done by a professional manicurist!

As the season continues in full force, let’s not forget the most important part for being a fashion diva…..being the Belle of the Ball!

Instructions For Choosing Ideal Austin Wedding Venues

There are certain occasions in life that one only gets a single chance to attend. Take for instance marriage, one only gets to celebrate one marriage ceremony unless a spouse dies or divorces. It is therefore important to make all the preparations to ensure that this day turns out to be perfect. One of the things that greatly determine the success of such a party is the place where it is held. One has to choose a decent site if at all he would wish to have a memorable marriage ceremony. Below are some important facts one should know when scouting for Austin wedding venues.

Most people still prefer the idea of holding the church service then proceeding to the reception where food would be served to all the guests. If this is the same plan you have, you must choose a reception that is close to the church. Generally speaking, the location of the site you have chosen is very important. Apart from being close by, it has to be accessible by various means of transport.

When one is making up his mind on the venue to choose, he has to consider the number of people invited to the ceremony. In case you invited many people, you have to find a big venue that would accommodate. The reverse is true if at all you are organizing a small private ceremony where just a few friends and guests are invited.

The theme of the day will dictate the kind of site you choose. You are expected to choose a site that auger well with your theme. If you want your ceremony to have a modern feeling, you should consider finding a venue that suits this kind of theme. This will make your decoration work to be easy.

Your budget will guide you when choosing the right site for the celebration. In case you are working with a lean budget, you must find a site whose cost will not affect your budget. There is no point of making inquiries about the cost hiring a castle yet your budget dictates that you should be looking for a hall in the village.

It is always good to plan ahead. Some of the most envied sites for such functions are usually on high demand. It would be wise of you to make early booking. This will save you from jostling for chance with other people planning to get married.

The area you have chosen to host such an event must be secure. It should have tight security such that terrorists cannot think of getting close. It is wise to choose a place with perimeter wall with designated entries and exits.

When one is searching for the best Austin wedding venues, he has to consider the facilities at the place. There should be sufficient washrooms or both genders. This would ensure that all the guests are comfortable.

SKA St. Petersburg Vs. CSKA Moscow Live Stream Online

The KHL play-offs get underway on Friday, while Russian hockey continues to come to terms with its Sochi Olympic failure. Not surprisingly, many of the storylines that are likely to dominate the coming weeks of competition have strong echoes of what we saw beside the Black Sea last month.

Rivalries in the KHL come in many categories. As the league is still young, many of the rivalries have carried over from the days of the Russian Superleague, while others are new and may disappear. Some are based on geography, while others are based on team names or organization that these teams belonged to back in the Soviet Union.

A continuation of the general rivalry between St. Petersburg and Moscow, this rivalry encompasses SKA against any of the moscow teams, although not the teams in Moscow Oblast. Every year, sports news outlets even calculate who the Moscow Champion is, based on games just between these three teams.

The regular season scoring stats make for intriguing reading – and seem to split the league into East and West. The top five point scorers all play in the east, and all represent either Metallurg Magnitogorsk or Barys Astana. It’s a similar story for the leaders in goals and assists, with only Sibir’s Jori Lehtera breaking the Magnitka-Barys stranglehold.

Ak Bars boasts the top goalie, Emil Garipov, and the top-scoring D-men almost all play in the east. Only SKA St. Petersburg’s Maxim Chudinov (+30, placing fourth for plus/minus) and CSKA Moscow’s Deron Quint (fifth among top-scoring defencemen with 28 points) challenge the Eastern dominance of the individual prizes.

Yet, as we saw in Sochi, individual greatness is rarely a match for solid team-work. Dynamo Moscow has demonstrated this in the past two seasons – and Oleg Znarok has led his team to the top of the regular season table without relying heavily on any individual star.

As of the second season of the KHL (2009-10), all the Moscow teams are in one Conference, making rivalry matches more common. Due to hockey being less popular than football and other sports in Moscow, teams based there usually suffer in attendance. Capital city derbies, however, are always attended far better than other games.

Even SKA, for whom Ilya Kovalchuk is arguably the biggest name in the league, has shared the points around – young Artemi Panarin has matched Kovi point for point throughout the season, Roman Cervenka is close on their heels. The final destiny of the Gagarin Cup looks set to be decided when the most reliable team players come head to head with the most dangerous individuals, and the outcome could well illuminate one of the underlying questions in contemporary Russian hockey.

The KHL play-offs start in the West on Friday. Defending champion Dynamo Moscow faces Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, SKA plays CSKA in an army derby and there are two cross-border encounters as Lev takes on Medvescak and Donbass welcomes Dinamo Riga.

On Saturday the Eastern Conference joins, with Metallurg Magnitogorsk facing Admiral, Barys playing Avtomobilist, Ak Bars taking on Sibir and Salavat Yulayev welcoming Torpedo. Each series is played until a team reaches four victories.

Travel to Canada, but Should You Become A Canadian Resident?

Why Become a Canadian Permanent Resident? That’s one question you may already be wondering, especially if you’ve done some research into what the process requires. It isn’t easy to become a permanent resident, after all.

Plus, there are other options available if you want to work or study in Canada. Short-term, temporary visas are issued to workers and students that allow them to live and work in Canada.

So why become a permanent resident? The answer is simple: you’ll have more rights.

When you become a permanent resident of Canada, you are entitled to most of the sam e rights and privileges as a Canadian citizen. Below is a list of a few of these rights:

  • You are entitled to equal treatment and equal protection.
  • You are entitled to certain legal rights, such as; to be presume innocent until proven guilty, to be provided with an interpreter in the courtroom, if necessary, to have a lawyer.
  • You have the right to enter and exit Canada as you see fit, plus you can move freely from province to province.
  • You can work and study anywhere you choose in Canada (you cannot hold some high-security government positions, however.)

While most of these rules also apply to temporary Canadian residents, there are some social service benefits that are only or primarily designed to help permanent residents and citizens of Canada.

These benefits include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB) – For families with children under the age of 18 who are considered to have a low-income, the Canadian government provides monthly tax-free payments to help cover expenses.
  • Old Age Security, Guaranteed Income Supplement, and Canada Pension Plan – All three of these programs are designed to provide financial support to workers after they reach retirement age – currently age 65. To be eligible, you have to meet specific residency requirements and to have contributed to the system by paying taxes in Canada. However, most permanent residents will qualify for at least partial payments from these programs.
  • Universal health care – Most necessary medical expenses are covered through the Canadian universal health care program. These expenses include visits to emergency room, immunizations, yearly exams, etc.
  • Free education – All children under 18 are entitled to a free education in the Canadian public school system.
  • Maternity and parental leave – In Canada, working parents are given time off when a new baby is born or adopted. Women can take up to 12 months of maternity leave and receive 50 to 65% of their normal income. Partially paid parental leave is also available for up to 35 weeks. One parent can take all 35 weeks or both parents can split the allotment of time (i. e. one parent takes 20 weeks while the other takes 15 weeks). To be eligible for parental leave, you must have worked in Canada for at least 600 hours.

All of these benefits and more become available to you when you are a permanent resident of Canada.

Additionally, being a permanent resident gives you the opportunity to become a Canadian citizen after only three years of living and working in Canada.

Once you become a citizen, you can run for political office, become involved in political activities, and vote in elections. You can also maintain duel-citizenship, so you don’t have to give up citizenship in your home country just to enjoy the benefits of Canadian citizenship.
