Fort Lauderdale: the Venice of America

Author: Administrator

31/03/2015

trfort1Apparently Fort Lauderdale is the Venice of America. I know: it seems as if everywhere is the Venice of somewhere these days. But that’s how the Florida city has rebranded itself, because it desperately wants to be seen as “upscale”. So I went there with a simple challenge: prove it.Like Venice, Fort Lauderdale is a town laced with water. There are 300 miles of intra-coastal waterways.

Haute horology gets real

Author: Administrator

30/03/2015

clockIf the watch-collecting world at large is collectively snubbing mega-complications in grande case sizes, Switzerland hasn’t received the email. At this year’s SIHH watch fair (Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie), I did see wonderfully refined and equally impressive technical watches, but the vast majority of talking pieces from the exhibiting brands were large, complicated and really, really expensive.

‘Give us a smile, love.’ What no woman wants to hear

womanfunThis week, I was asked on to BBC Woman’s Hour. The topic up for debate? Whether we live in a ‘culture of kindness’.(Cue spluttering disbelief from colleagues: “they do know you, right?”)But the more I considered it, the more I became convinced that we’re all increasingly seeking kindness.

‘For me, sex starts in the brain’: Kim Cattrall

Author: Administrator

couples1I’ll go anywhere and am very adaptive, so long as I can take my cat. Kobi Cat is also very adaptive, even though she’s 17. So far she’s been to Liverpool, Chichester, London, Toronto, Vancouver and LA – she has her own passport and flies in the hold. I kind of have to take her, or she gives me a lot of shit.

What is the most private city in the world?

Author: Administrator

28/03/2015

tr22“It may well be the case that democracy and capitalism, which at moments in their youth were allies, cannot live together once both have come of age.” So wrote the historian EH Tawney in 1938.Tawney’s prescient quote could well apply to London today, where the “Boris Boom” is overseeing a version of extreme capitalism that is privatising vast swaths of the capital.

What every woman needs now: a six-pack from ancient Greece

Author: Administrator

27/03/2015

fgr4Visitors to the Defining Beauty exhibition at the British Museum – of sculpture from and inspired by ancient Greece – will be greeted by an ostensibly alluring sight: the naked, crouching figure of Aphrodite beckons us into the room.Only when we walk around her do we see that her hand may not be beckoning, so much as pulled back to give us a smack in the kisser for looking at her without invitation.

stylebalenciangaThe European Commission has warned EU citizens that they should close their Facebook accounts if they want to keep information private from US security services, finding that current Safe Harbour legislation does not protect citizen’s data.The comments were made by EC attorney Bernhard Schima in a case brought by privacy campaigner Maximilian Schrems, looking at whether the data of EU citizens should be considered safe if sent to the US in a post-Snowden revelation landscape.

A weekend break in… Miami Beach

Author: Administrator

26/03/2015

miami1These days will be exactly 100 years since this most colourful of cities was formally incorporated. Back then, even to call a scrap of reclaimed land and mangrove, the site of a failed coconut farming project, a “city” was the kind of audacious, flamboyant gesture Miami Beach would later become famous.

Did Schengen ruin the romance of travel?

Author: Administrator

paris8As with many revolutions that redefine landscapes, it started with the stroke of a pen and a firm handshake rather than a rumble of bulldozers or the stomping of troops on the ground.Nor did it come to pass in a major metropolis.
There was no grand setting – Paris, Madrid or Berlin – for this rotation of the guard, no commandeering of Versailles for a photo opportunity.

Foods That Make You Look Younger-New life for old cuisines

chinafood8Hotel waiter delivering room service, breakfast in foregroundYou can head off a lot of your most common beauty concerns simply by downing the right foods. That's right—eating well not only does wonders for your waistline and bolsters your immune system but can also provide some very real get-gorg benefits, such as smoothing wrinkles, giving hair a glossy shine and strengthening flimsy nails. "Your diet directly affects your day-to-day appearance and plays a significant role in how well you age," says Joshua Zeichner, MD. The smart approach, Dr. Zeichner says, is to create a plan that includes what he calls "the building blocks of healthy skin and hair"—nutrients, minerals and fatty acids—as well as antioxidants to protect your body from damaging environmental stresses. Get ready to nab some beauty-boosting perks by tossing these essential face-saving edibles into your grocery cart.What to eat to keep young and beautiful and among those products is Feta cheese is packed full of vitamin B12, which speeds up the replacement of dead skin cells. cfood1Central Asian restaurants have made a place for themselves in Beijing's Russian district, and diners are licking their lips, Erik Nilsson reports. Erik Nilsson The old Soviet Union is reuniting in Beijing - for dinner. At least its cuisine is. Central Asian fare has taken a central place at the table in the Yabaolu neighborhood's dining scene, as the city's "Russiatown" transforms into "Beijing-istan".Natives of the "stans" are making culinary inroads into China's capital as the New Silk Road Economic Belt develops, while fewer Russian traders are frequenting the declining Yabaolu fur market that spurred the original development of the surrounding Slavic enclave.This means compote, a juice of mixed fruits, is diluting volumes of vodka, as the tides of the boiled dried-fruit juice rise and the hard-drinking part of town dries up. (Actually, many of the area's Central Asian eateries are halal, but allow you to bring your own booze.) There's more yogurt and less mayonnaise. More kebabs and fewer cutlets. More plov (Central Asia's rice staple) and fewer potatoes.These eateries dot the Shenlu dining street behind the fur market, sprinkled among restaurants serving sustenance from China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, Mongolia,Greece,Turkey and Italy.food7People will choose larger portions of food if they are labeled as being "healthier," even if they have the same number of calories, according to a new study."People think (healthier food) is lower in calories," said Pierre Chandon, a marketing professor at the INSEAD Social Science Research Center in France, and they "tend to consume more of it." That misconception can lead to people eating larger portion sizes of so-called healthy foods, and therefore more calories."Foods are marketed as being healthier for a reason, because food producers believe, and they correctly believe, that those labels will influence us to eat their products and perhaps eat more of their products,"
