I wrote the brief message down on a piece of paper for parents so that against us they didn’t worry. Next – from experience knowing that the process of dressing up a bit will last for Karolinas – I opened the beer for myself and I turned the television on.
Soon thesister changed the registered office from her room to the bathroom, in which right away rozebrzmiało pleasant buzzing her electric shavers, meaning that he is depilating legs for himself. Actually it was pleasant not very buzzing, but imagining her during this scheming activity.
Running from March 4th to July 16th at the Complesso del Vittorianoin Rome is Giovanni Boldini, a retrospective on artist Giovanni Boldini’s work and life. The eponymous exhibition covers pieces produced at the beginning of his career in Florence and his attachment to the Macchiaioli painters to his later dissent. Spanning 60 years of his career, the exhibit explores the world through the eyes of the artist: we are introduced to the Belle Époque at the turn of 20th century Paris where Boldini dwelled in the midst of the bourgeois and high society.
Boldini is best known for his paintings that explore a side of high society behind closed doors, showing female beauty in a candid and sensual manner, with women standing seductively in serpentine poses while displaying their chests and necks. It is no wonder these paintings sparked outrage among the public for their mysterious and sensual power.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Advocates for working families are fighting to keep a proposed state-sponsored retirement savings program called Secure Choice, even as some in Congress are trying to undermine this type of plan.
The U.S. Senate is expected to vote soon on a bill to reverse Labor Department rules that establish a state’s right to run “work and save” programs. Designed for people who don’t have workplace retirement plans, the state deducts money from workers’ paychecks and selects a firm to invest it.
Marisabel Torres, a senior policy analyst for the National Council of La Raza in California, said she’s disappointed that the U.S. House already voted to gut the rules. She said they could help California’s working poor salt some money away for their golden years.
“Regardless of where they work, they’ll be able to save long-term for retirement,” she said, “and that policy could really go a long way in helping to stave off the retirement crisis.”
An estimated 7 million Californians and 55 million Americans work for companies that don’t offer retirement plans. Opponents of the state-run plans have said government should stay out of the financial sector and have noted that people are free to open their own 401(K) plan with a private investment firm.
Torres said lawmakers who voted to repeal the Labor Department rules are really favoring Wall Street over small businesses and their employees.
“This would really allow businesses to be competitive, who maybe don’t have the manpower or the financial means of providing retirement accounts as a benefit for their workers,” she said. “It allows workers to work for someone and not have to make that tradeoff.”
The Secure Choice program in California has been in the works for many years and is supposed to be open for enrollment within the next two years.
You’ve undoubtedly been bombarded with the same tired questions from non-Angelenos: How do you celebrate Christmas without snow? Don’t you wish you had real seasons? With unwelcome weather patterns out of the equation, we like to think that LA’s amazing events set milestones for us to look forward to. From homegrown festivals like FYF, CicLAvia and LA Pride to blockbuster bashes like Coachella, we’ve rounded up our favorite events throughout the year. Whether you’re looking for something to do today, this weekend or in the coming months, look no further than our Los Angeles events calendar for 2016.
Los Angeles has plenty of beautiful performing arts centers to see theater in, but during summer, Angelenos want to be outside, and there are lots of options, from rooftop bars to the best beaches in Los Angeles. So why shouldn’t we be able to see theater outdoors too? Well, we can. Here are the best outdoor theater options in LA, whether in an amphitheater in the Valley or at an annual tradition in a cemetery.
Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum’s Summer Repertoire Season takes place in its authentic wooden amphitheater, making it the perfect setting for classic Shakespeare productions or world premieres. Summer 2016 will see the Bard’s Romeo & Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Titus Andronicus, as well as the world premiere of Tom (adapted by Ellen Geer) and The Imaginary Invalid.
Tell us about your cool job. I work as a painter/sandblaster at a shipyard. I’ve been doing it for the past five years! It’s definitely one of the most dirty and difficult jobs I’ve had. But I’ve learned a lot and it’s always entertaining to see the reactions of people who ask me what I do for a living.
What are the artistic aspects to your gig? Has it affected the way you interact with tattooers and vice versa? Honestly, it’s not much of an artistic job. We go into an area of the boat, sandblast/prep the metal for paint, and then paint. But I feel that my job makes tattooers respect me more. I’m not your typical girly girl.
What made you get a back piece? I didn’t intend to get a full back piece. I started with my mermaid—which was part of a cover-up I got when I was younger—and just went from there. My favorite movie is The Little Mermaid and I decided I wanted to go with an “under the sea” theme. I was obsessed with the movie and even wanted to change my name to Ariel.
Have you guys heard of The Actors Fund? Nope? Me neither. So when a friend forwarded me a link
to check them out, of course I had to.
The Actors Fund was created back before tabloid magazines and society newspaper pages created actor celebrities. Actors were lowlifes; just as bad as gypsies, tramps, and thieves, and when they died, no one wanted to bury them in sacred grounds, cause, again, ewww! Actors. Gross. Also, they were usually broke (doing 99 seat theatre in LA? KIDDING), so they died with no money.
The Actors Fund was created to help bury the dead. And once it got going, people thought, you know, maybe we can help actors when they’re alive too!
Crybaby Presents is the brainchild of childhood friends and fellow RISD graduates Dakota Salt and Lisa Ziven. Estranged after graduation, the ladies were reunited when Dakota attended Lisa’s holiday party in Los Feliz. Their rekindled friendship has resulted in a much-needed addition to L.A.’s predictable retail and artist community.
Crybaby is a permanent travelling installation of art and design that will change locations each season. Their present home is at 171 S. La Brea, a hop and skip from niche shops like Union, Undefeated, and American Rag Cie. The clothing and accessories are undoubtedly hip and fresh from brands like All For The Mountain, Postalco and sis loves me videos. Everything in the minimal space has its pulse on design and art with Areaware dinner plates by Jason Miller and original works by artists Leo Fitzpatrick, Adam Marnie, Glen Baldridge, and Kevin Zucker.
NY based designer Brian Wood continues to push the envelope with his fashion forward designs while aiming to raid your closet (and some panties) in the process.
The Elizabeth, NJ native has been non-stop in the fashion industry since 2005 with an innovative high-end menswear line along with a street wear line known for its vibrant and conceptual designs. He also recently collaborated with liquor brand Crown Royal Black where he designed a series of luxury bags for their 2011 marketing campaign.
