Zoroastrians: Iran’s forgotten minority

The decline of this ancient community is a tragedy not just for Iran, but for human civilization writ large It is disheartening, but the adherents of the world’s first monotheistic religion appear to have been consigned to oblivion in their ancestral homeland, and as their numbers shrink, it is not only a religion that is disappearing, but the building blocks of a civilization.

Samsung Launches Perfume With Olympic Medalist

In a bizarre, nonsensical collaboration with Olympic gold medalist Max Whitlock (a British artistic gymnast), Samsung recently launched L’Eau De Laundry – a new scent created “to celebrate the arrival of Samsung’s latest ecobubbleTM washing machine … presented in bottles which perfectly replicate the machine.”     The fragrance accompanies parodic ads that mock the cliché hyperbo...

Zoroastrian priests have masked for millennia | Faith Matters

“Dad, everyone’s wearing a mask!” exclaimed the son of Adi Sidhwa, a Zoroastrian priest, about the COVID mask requirement. “Is it different than yours?” The boy wasn’t referring to his father’s COVID mask but the long, white, cloth one – padan — that Sidhwa, 46, from eastern Bergen County, wears when he presides at the service in the Pomona, New York, temple. A Zoroastrian priest, also referred to as mobed, has always worn a mask when performing prayers in front of the sacred flame used in most ...

Hotels, Ice Cream, and Shoes as Canvases for Great Brands

Hotels, Ice Cream, and Shoes as Canvases for Great Brands   Seth Godin has written about how Nike is a great brand because we can imagine what a Nike hotel would look like.   So, let me ask a slightly weirder question: If Nike were an ice cream flavor, what would it taste like?   My guess would be something like a lemon zest sorbet, perhaps. (I’ll look for your best guess in the comments.)   Speaking of ice cream, Ben & Jerry’s is another great brand, like Nike.   Maybe you have a favorite Ben &...

Banff Virtual Film Festival: A Most Excellent Diversion and Fuel for Inspiration

Living in Northwest, Montana at the time, the drive north and across the border and up to Banff was a streamlined affair. Beyond my means, however, a warm place to stay near Banff. Even back then, the somewhat tony Canadian town had a...

If you grew up in the ‘80s like me, there’s a good chance you really wanted to go to space camp and you really wanted to be an astronaut.

How to Tell Awesome Stories to Your Kids

Since our kids were little, we’ve read to them every night before bed. Sometimes after we put the book we’re currently reading aside, I’ll also give them a bonus, impromptu storytelling session as I tuck them in. I just tell them a story that I conjure up on the spot. While Gus (age 10) has kind of aged out of it, Scout (age 7) still really enjoys hearing Dad’s imaginative yarns. I didn’t use any guides to come up with my stories, and instead just drew upon my years of consuming narratives i...

An Indian Summer: New from La Fleur by Livvy

Indian summer is as much an idea as a state of the weather. In the northern part of the Americas, an “Indian summer” is that warm autumn which seems to extend the summer months even longer. September and then October, though growing more golden in appearance, still feel warm. Artisan perfume house La Fleur by Livvy has made a fragrance that plays delightfully with two concepts of Indian su...

AI and Character Design

One thing I have to do ASAP for my novel writing project is to figure out some character and plot ideas. I don’t already have a story in mind, and I haven’t figured out any characters. I haven’t even picked a genre, so I’m really starting from scratch here. I’d love to have at least a basic sketch of what kind of story I’m going to write by November 1st when NaNoWriMo officially starts. I can lean on past role-playing experience to help with some details of character design, but I also prefer...

Flowers In Masculine Fragrances: The Shortlist

No fragrance is complete without floral notes or their constituents, but in masculine fragrances, perfumers tend to blur the floral notes or hide them behind spicy, woody, and leathery notes. Flower bouquets in perfumery are more often created for women, and although no one can forbid those who want to wear women's fragrances, men's florals can also be found — a kind of boutonniere. Men's comm... Read full article: Flowers In Masculine Fragrances: The Shortlist from Fragrantica Perfumes and Col...

Wie mir Lippenstift dabei geholfen hat, meine trans Identität zu finden

Bis letzten Februar hatte ich in meinem Leben nur einen einzigen Lippenstift besessen. Er war knallrot, glänzend und passte überhaupt nicht zu meinem Teint – und liegt jetzt gerade ganz hinten in einer Schublade, wo ich sein grelles Grinsen vor mir versteckt habe. Und doch kann ich mich nicht dazu überwinden, ihn wegzuwerfen. Damit würde ich mir selbst eingestehen, dass ich für lange Zeit keine Ahnung hatte, wie ich die Weiblichkeit performen sollte, die von mir erwartet wurde. Und schließlich s...

Recovering Shopaholic? Let Plymouth Associates Help

While there’s nothing wrong with a desire to be stylish, the same can’t be said for letting it become a source of financial strain. Buying more clothes, shoes, and jewelry than one can afford – especially if using high-interest credit cards to do so – is a recipe for disaster. Recovering shopaholics know this better than anyone else. Most are forced to chew through savings, sell off assets, and work second jobs to pay off the debts accumulated via chronic overspending even with retail takin...
