Exposing the Anti-Mary: An Interview with Carrie Gress

In his first epistle, the Apostle John wrote, “as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come” (1 Jn. 2:19). St. Paul wrote of a final antichrist, “the man of lawlessness…the son of perdition” who will arise prior to Christ’s return (2 Thess. 2:3). The spirit of antichrist has been sowing its seeds in the world from the first century until now. In her fascinating new book, The Anti-Mary Exposed (TAN Books, 2019), Dr. Carrie Gress takes aim at a specific aspect of ...

Amber Tamblyn on Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Comparing Susan Collins to Soon-Yi

Amber Tamblyn, the star of “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” films and “Joan of Arcadia,” has moved away from acting in recent years and toward activism.

Comment on foolproof cacio e pepe by Joan

I made this with my own recipe and it was a dismal failure!! As I read your post I just kept saying “yes”, “Yes”, “oh Yes.” Everything that you said went wrong went wrong for me. Even though my family is Italian, my mom and grandmother never made this dish. My Dad had it in Rome at a wonderful place on the Via Veneto where he insisted we lunch every day that we were in Rome. He alternated between Cacio e Pepe and their amazingly thin pizza. I tried to capture the dish so many times and had the c...

6 Books to Celebrate Women's History Month

The other day I was in one of those rare states of being in between both print/digital and audiobooks. When I was thinking about what to read next, I remembered March is Women's History Month. This prompted me to sort through my new releases to see which titles would fit the theme. I found books geared to young adult readers and to adults. My mix includes fiction and nonfiction, and one is written in verse. Although not all the books I feature today are technically women's history, I thin...

Marketing: Agencies to put on your radar (if they aren’t already)

In this business, it is crucial to make sure you are keeping up with the agencies to market to and get on their radar.  When a former co-worker asked his FB connections, which is largely top creative people, for the top agencies to watch and up and coming agencies, I knew it was a list I wanted to research for my clients.  My clients receive weekly/bi-monthly articles about recently awarded accounts (brands) to an agency.  They also receive articles of importance in this business and a marketing...

Comment on chocolate puddle cakes by Joan

I love your food blog, but I never read your “About” before. Very intimidating with 3 millions fab comments!! I have one question. I have an Italian comfort food blog that I can’t blog on anymore because I can’t eat my own food. I have chronic IBS, so I am starting a new food blog that is only ibs safe recipes.

These Were The Best Dressed Celebrities On The Oscars Red Carpet

We’ve watched every movie, predicted every win and argued over what (and who) our favorite celebs should wear to earn the unofficial title of best dressed. Now, the only thing left to do is to watch. That’s right, it’s time for the Oscars. After a season packed full of surprise performances (who's pumped for Jennifer Hudson tonight?), unexpected hosts (or lack thereof) and disappointing snubs (where are all the Eighth Grade noms?), the award show Supreme is finally here, and we’ve got very high...

Did You Notice All The Disney Princess Inspiration At The Oscars?

Now that award season 2019 is over, we can take a look back through all of the red carpets of the year and diagnose what sartorial moves stand out the most. We might not find ourselves decked out in haute couture gowns and/or custom tuxes very often (or ever), but as self-professed celebrity know-it-alls, we can still study their every move — style moves included. Since the Golden Globes kicked off red carpet season last January, we've born witness to dozens of brightly-colored frocks, Joan of ...

Why The Upcoming Harriet Tubman Movie Is So Timely, Even 106 Years After Her Death

There’s enough material in Harriet Tubman ’s biography to fill an entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. Her achievements are herculean: an escaped slave herself, she was instrumental in organizing the Underground Railroad, and would help ferry hundreds of people to freedom; later, she was a well-known abolitionist speaker, and even served as a scout for the Union Army during the Civil War. She’s an American hero, a warrior and an activist who saved countless lives, and whose life story seems tailor...

Death metal attracts sharks as it mimics "struggling fish"

TIL: Sharks are attracted to the sound of death metal. Apparently, the "dense tones" of it mimics the "low frequencies of struggling fish." (Damn.) In 2015, a Discovery Channel crew -- hoping to attract a large great white named "Joan of Shark" -- dropped a speaker underwater and played some. Independent: Desperate to feature the 16-foot, 1.6 tonne shark in their documentary, they submerged a speaker to see if the shark would react. Unfortunately they didn't manage to attract Joan, but did c...

The Joy of Silents: Méliès, Reininger, Gance and Murnau

None Silent film fans are largely an indiscriminate lot. I often hear Americans say "I love foreign movies," but of course, they never mean they love all of them. Lovers of animation or documentaries look for the cream, not every cut-rate cash-in. Even fans of certain genres, like horror or westerns or action films or musicals, rarely believe every last example is worth tracking down. Some they'll watch only to roll their eyes at what a waste of time it is as they waste their time. And yet, w...

10 Tips for a Long and Happy Marriage

There’s no master plan for how people maintain their marriage. There’s no formula to follow or equation to calculate. Every relationship is different and each couple faces distinct circumstances. You can’t deliver the magic love formula for the same two couples. Yet, there’s a wealth of knowledge out there from those who understand what it takes to thrive. For one couple, it might be a simple passion or activity they both enjoy, something that no one else can understand. Humor, music, sense of s...

Saint-Augustin Church

A post about another church… Well, there are some 250 churches / religious buildings in Paris – with a domination of the Roman Catholic ones – some 140 … and so far this blog has only posts about some 50 (and my previous blog less than 10), so there is more to do. The Saint-Augustin Church was built during the 1860’s in an area, then completely newly shaped by Haussmannian boulevards … One considered that there was a need for another prestigious church building. During the constru...

Leaders: Choose Your Own Reality

Guest post from Dr. Joan McArthur-Blair and Dr. Jeanie Cockell Just about every leader has had an employee who was, to say it diplomatically, a “handful” to manage. We have. One example was a person Joan worked with – let’s call her Jane Doe. Jane saw policies and procedures as mere suggestions. She irritated her team with her habit of pushing limits to get an idea through. When stressed she let it show though in her interactions with others. Yet, she always received amazing reviews...

Do You Need to Set a Timer to Solve Your Work Problem?

Editor’s note: This is a guest post by Danielle LaSusa PhD. It was hopeless. I was a fraud, an imposter. And I had the evidence all around me. Like, literally. I was sitting in it — slumped on the floor, encircled by a dozen, splayed open, unread books. Pages of black typeset stared up at me. They mockingly whispered that I had no business pretending to call myself an expert in anything. I was lost yet again in what I would come to refer to as “The Great Footnote Chase.” It was an unproductive ...
