Building Resilience, Part III

While self-discipline helps fight off temptation and understanding your purpose provides clarity and meaning to your actions, what happens when you face adversity, extreme pressure, or stressful situations? Staying out of the mud is one thing; getting out of the mud once you are in it is another. To pick ourselves up from the dismay that adversity causes, we must develop resiliency. By combining resiliency with self-discipline and purpose, we can complete the puzzle and confront any situation with the utmost confidence. What is Resilience? Resilience is the process of adapting to adversity, threats, or significant sources of stress, such as family strife, relationship trouble, poor h

The Key to Burning Fat Isn't What You Think

In my previous columns, I covered information on various topics; but this piece is different. I am going to cut straight to the point and tell you that Fish oil is the key to fat loss and muscle growth. By the end of this short column, you will know what kind and how much to supplement. Fish oil provides essential fats, which are Omega-3 fatty acids. Much like essential amino acids, essential fats cannot be produced within the body and therefore must be consumed. The body uses fish oil’s fat to build up a lipid outer layer of the cell, which protects the cell. Therefore, the body does not turn fish oil into fat. The protective cell lipid layer, which is made up of whatever fat you eat, i

The Ripple Effect of Master Stone

I met the man in 1997, at the Rubicon restaurant in San Francisco. Oblivious of its reputation, I fortuitously landed a job as a bartender at the world-renowned, establishment which boasted one of the best and most diverse wine lists in the country at the time. Owned by a prominent New York restaurateur, Drew Nieporent and his celebrity investors and partners, Robert DeNiro, Francis Ford Coppola, and Robin Williams, the restaurant was the spot to go to and be seen in the Bay Area within its newly booming tech industry. Back then, I knew that Cabernet Sauvignon was a red grape variety and Riesling a white one. Beyond that, my wine knowledge was laughable. But I was a damn good bartender,

Artist Jonathan Kwegyir Aggrey, Better Known in Shanghai than Paris, Thanks to Chinese Art Investors

Nothing in recent years has divided popular opinion amongst people of African descent more than China’s involvement on the African continent. Whilst some warmly welcome the sorely needed direct investment and China’s business-only approach, others have expressed their concern about the rise of a new colonial power cloaked in the attire of transparent and mutually beneficial partnership and trade. The jury is still out on whether China should be perceived as a friend to Africa or as a potential threat to her independence, but in the world of contemporary art, China’s increased involvement and patronage has been unanimously embraced, especially by contemporary African artists. Over the past

Hermes' Refusal to Change is its Most Radical Gesture Yet

The fashion house remains loyal to a way of life more common to Europe’s medieval guilds, dedicating itself to the idea of craftsmanship above all else. IF THERE IS a signifying gesture that contains nearly 200 years of obsession, it is the ballet of the point sellier. This is how it begins: The artisan is young, with a confidence that comes from years on the bench, her eyes focused on two small back-to-back precut pieces of leather. She holds in each hand a two-inch needle, threaded with linen fiber that she has dragged through beeswax to render waterproof. Then, wielding the needles like surgical instruments, she pierces the leather, pulling taut the threads to draw the halves together in

Forlorn Barn Gets New Life as Entertaining Oasis

From a basic barn re-imagined as a swank paneled library to a storybook stone cottage where suppers are held by candlelight, a rural Illinois estate brims with diminutive delights, thanks to designer Annie Brahler-Smith (ABS). How does a stable in Illinois end up resembling a tweedy gentleman›s club? ABS: Would you believe by accident? It happened while I was designing a series of outbuildings on the 40-acre property, which was purchased by a former professional baseball player and his wife. While they were mulling over how to redo the main house, I started designing some amazing auxiliary structures — a collector’s garage for his cars, a garden house, and a pool house with twin pergolas.

Tied with a Bow: Gift Wrapping, the Ultimate Present(ation)

From an early age, my appreciation for a beautifully wrapped gift was noticeable to all those in my household. I requested that all gifts be wrapped in the matching paper and ribbon that I selected. As children, around Christmastime, we view a wrapped present with more reverence than we do as adults. When it comes to gifts, this childlike sense of wonder remains with me. During the holidays and, especially at Christmastime, as children we obviously viewed a wrapped gift much differently than we do in adulthood. At a very early age, my appreciation for a beautifully wrapped gift was noticeably apparent to all those in my household. I requested that all gifts be wrapped in the matching pap

UAE National Day Cup
