Random Fields and Stochastic Partial Differential Equations

Product : Random Fields and Stochastic Partial Differential Equations
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : This book considers some models described by means of partial differential equations and boundary conditions with chaotic stochastic disturbance. In a framework of stochastic partial differential equations an approach is suggested to generalise solutions of stochastic boundary problems. The main topic concerns probabilistic aspects with applications to the most well-known random fields models which are representative for the corresponding stochastic Sobolev spaces. This work assumes basic knowledge of general analysis and probability, such as Hilbert space methods, Schwartz distributions, and Fourier transforms. Audience: This volume will be of interest to researchers and postgraduate students whose work involves probability theory, stochastic processes and partial differential equations.

The (Coming) Age of Thresholding

Product : The (Coming) Age of Thresholding
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : As a philosopher, Stephen Erickson considers himself a messenger of sorts and the message he is delivering is an important and groundbreaking one. He convincingly argues that we are entering into a new historical moment, a period which will only be properly defined and named by those who come after us, as were the Renaissance and the Enlightenment. Erickson predicts a failure and eventual breakdown of traditional values and institutions resulting in a dramatic change in our understanding of human life. This he illustrates with clear examples from contemporary political, economic and religious circumstances. To lessen the impact of this dramatic changeover, which will be initially experienced as upheaval and global anxiety, Erickson argues that we must do all we can to come into this new era, which he has called The Age of Thresholding, with a better understanding of our past and present. Only then can the message our future holds be properly received and understood. Many have asked why and when our century''s values came into being, and why they have been sustained in the manner in which they have. These are legitimate historical questions, and I hope to supply some answers. But other questions should be directed toward our future. Over what threshold might we be crossing and what will have been ventured? What will have been gained, and what will be left behind? from The (Coming) Age of Thresholding

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Should Remi, the first of his tribe to go to university, return to his people from the city? Should he return to Thoni, his brother''s widow, whom he has had to marry under tribal custom? Or should he continue to be a ''black hermit'' in the town, visiting the night clubs with his friend, Jane? Should he be supporting the Africanist Party when people feel that the colonial oppression has just been replaced by another form? These are the dramatic conflicts in this play. Ngugi wa Thiong''o is best known internationally as a novelist as well as a playwright. He wrote This Time Tomorrow (published in African Short Stories), The Black Hermit (1968), and, with Micere Githae Mugo, The Trial of Dedan Kimathi (1976), all of which had great social and political impact. His detention without trial in 1978 was probably due to the staging of the Gikuyu play, Ngaahika Ndeenda at the Kamirithu Cultural Centre, co-authored with Ngugu wa Mirii. The play is published in English as I will Marry when I Want. Ngugi continues to strongly advocate writing in indigenous languages. His two titles - Caaitani Mutharabaini and A Grain of Wheat - were among the recipients of Africa''s 100 Best Books of the 20th Century Award.

Product : Empire In Retreat: The Past, Present, And Future Of The United States
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : A respected authority on international relations and foreign policy, Victor Bulmer-Thomas offers a grand survey of the United States as an empire. From its territorial expansion after independence, through hegemonic rule following World War II, and to the nation’s current imperial retreat, the United States has had an uneasy relationship with the idea of itself as an empire. In this book Bulmer-Thomas offers three definitions of empire—territorial, informal, and institutional—that help to explain the nation’s past and forecast a future in which the United States will cease to play an imperial role. Arguing that the move toward diminished geopolitical dominance reflects the aspirations of most U.S. citizens, he asserts that imperial retreat does not necessarily mean national decline and may ultimately strengthen the nation-state. At this pivotal juncture in American history, Bulmer-Thomas’s uniquely global perspective will be widely read and discussed across a range of fields.

Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : These personal diaries kept by Astrid Lindgren, author of the world famous Pippi Longstocking books, chronicle the horrors of World War II. Before she became internationally known for her Pippi Longstocking books, Astrid Lindgren was an aspiring author living in Stockholm with her family at the outbreak of the Second World War. The diaries she kept throughout the hostilities offer a civilian's, a mother's, and an aspiring writer’s unique account of the devastating conflict. She emerges as a morally courageous critic of violence and war, as well as a deeply sensitive and astute observer of world affairs. We hear her thoughts about rationing, blackouts, the Soviet invasion of Finland, and the nature of evil, as well as of her personal heartbreaks, financial struggles, and trials as a mother and writer. Posthumously published in Sweden to great international acclaim, these diaries were called in the Swedish press an “unparalleled war narrative,” “unprecedented.” and a “shocking history lesson.” Illustrated with family photographs, newspaper clippings, and facsimile pages, Lindgren’s diaries provide an intensely personal and vivid account of Europe during the war.

The Finest Traditions Of My Calling: One Physician's Search For The Renewal Of Medicine

Product : The Finest Traditions Of My Calling: One Physician's Search For The Renewal Of Medicine
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : A deeply concerned physician reflects on today’s doctor-patient relationships and offers a compelling vision of a better way to practice medicine Patients and doctors alike are keenly aware that the medical world is in the midst of great change. We live in an era of continuous healthcare reforms, many of which focus on high volume, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness. This compelling, thoughtful book is the response of a practicing psychiatrist who explains how population-based reforms have diminished the relationship between doctors and patients, to the detriment of both. As an antidote to failed reforms and an alternative to stubbornly held traditions, Dr. Abraham M. Nussbaum suggests ways that doctors and patients can learn what it means to be ill and to seek medical assistance.   Using a variety of riveting stories from his own and others’ experiences, the author develops a series of metaphors to explore a doctor’s role in different healthcare reform scenarios: scientist, technician, author, gardener, teacher, servant, and witness. Each role influences what a physician sees when examining a person as a patient. Dr. Nussbaum cautions that true healthcare reform can happen only when those who practice medicine can see, and be seen by, their patients as fellow creatures. His memoir makes a hopeful appeal for change, and his insights reveal the direction that change must take.

Ovid's Women Of The Year: Narratives Of Roman Identity In The Fasti

Product : Ovid's Women Of The Year: Narratives Of Roman Identity In The Fasti
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Roman love-poet Ovid, best known for the epic Metamorphoses, offers in his Fasti the self-proclaimed goal of exploring and explicating the Roman calendar. Published in his maturity circa 14 CE, the Fasti presents claims of aetiological, astronomical, and even antiquarian interests, but more importantly the poem highlights an extraordinary prominence of female characters at work, play, and worship in its verses. From flirtatious goddesses to talkative old women, beautiful puellae to stern prophetesses and beyond, Ovid’s “calendar girls” appear in a vast and kaleidoscopic array of guises and narratives, importing and transforming literary genre and expectation alike in a poem that already in shape and purpose is unique in Latin literature. The poet’s long-standing fascination with female figures that had first appeared in his earliest work and then accompanied him throughout his career now resurfaces in a much more complex form. Of interest to literary scholars, antiquarians, and those studying the social and political roles of ancient women, Ovid’s Women of the Year offers an intriguing view of an Ovidian poem now coming into its own.

Mothering Without A Home: Attachment Representations And Behaviors Of Homeless Mothers And Children

Product : Mothering Without A Home: Attachment Representations And Behaviors Of Homeless Mothers And Children
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Homeless women and their children who reside in a transitional housing facility or shelter have experienced multiple traumas and disruptions in their earliest attachments. These multiple, chronic traumas often result in disorganized attachment disorders, which, in turn, affect all future development. Although there are a dearth of programs and interventions that work with disorganized attachment disorder within the homeless population, there are few studies that explore the difficulties that homeless mothers experience in forming positive attachments with their children.Mothering without a Home: Attachment Representations and Behaviors of Homeless Mothers and Children explores the attachment style of homeless mothers and its effect on the resulting attachment style of their children. Ann Smolen utilizes psychoanalytically informed interventions with the goal of aiding these women in developing a deeper capacity to understand and be attuned to their children''s emotional needs.

Virality: Contagion Theory In The Age Of Networks

Product : Virality: Contagion Theory In The Age Of Networks
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : In this thought-provoking work, Tony D. Sampson presents a contagion theory fit for the age of networks. Unlike memes and microbial contagions, Virality does not restrict itself to biological analogies and medical metaphors. It instead points toward a theory of contagious assemblages, events, and affects. For Sampson, contagion is not necessarily a positive or negative force of encounter; it is how society comes together and relates.Sampson argues that a biological knowledge of contagion has been universally distributed by way of the rhetoric of fear used in the antivirus industry and other popular discourses surrounding network culture. This awareness is also detectable in concerns over too much connectivity, such as problems of global financial crisis and terrorism. Sampson’s “virality” is as established as that of the biological meme and microbe but is not understood through representational thinking expressed in metaphors and analogies. Rather, Sampson interprets contagion theory through the social relationalities first established in Gabriel Tarde’s microsociology and subsequently recognized in Gilles Deleuze’s ontological worldview.According to Sampson, the reliance on representational thinking to explain the social behavior of networking—including that engaged in by nonhumans such as computers—allows language to overcategorize and limit analysis by imposing identities, oppositions, and resemblances on contagious phenomena. It is the power of these categories that impinges on social and cultural domains. Assemblage theory, on the other hand, is all about relationality and encounter, helping us to understand the viral as a positively sociological event, building from the molecular outward, long before it becomes biological.

Corpus II: Writings on Sexuality

Product : Corpus II: Writings on Sexuality
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : In this outstanding new collection, philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy takes up his perennial themes-community, embodiment, being-with, literature, politics, sense, and meaning-as part of a deep and mature appreciation of the fact that we are richly, joyfully, and thoroughly sexual beings.In a concise but extremely important essay, The ''There Is'' of the Sexual Relation, Nancy responds to Lacan''s dictum that there is no sexual relation and makes a radical argument for the central place of the sexual relation as our originary mode of being with one another. The Birth of Breasts is a beautiful reflection on human anatomy and the image and reality of the breast that draws on literature and poetry from Sappho to Beckett. In Strange Foreign Bodies, Nancy revisits the philosophical territory of the relation between mind or spirit and body but reminds us that bodies are at once familiar to us and also irredeemably strange. The Body of Pleasure explores the body as the site of essentially finite pleasure, finite because it reaches the end, the limit where the body tends to lose all form, becomes matter, an impenetrable mass. But this end also forms the touch of the outside and with it the joy of the world.Finally, The Sexual Relation-and Then builds on the insight into the central place of the sexual relation by considering specifically the generative possibilities of sex and the fact that we all came to be as the product of sexual relations.Nancy''s Corpus, published in English in 2008, was the philosopher''s most sustained consideration of embodiment to date. Now, in Corpus II, he carries that work in new directions which constantly remind us that human bodies are sexed and sexual bodies.

Lost Unicorns of the Velvet Revolutions: Heterotopias of the Seminar

Product : Lost Unicorns of the Velvet Revolutions: Heterotopias of the Seminar
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : This book examines the eastern European seminar of the late 1980s and early 1990s-an ongoing academic meeting place outside the formal rubric of the university-tracing its evolution into a social movement on the street and identifying the political force of the theoretical conversations that took place there. It also shows how these theories reflect the loss of socialist idealisms and established materialist frameworks that eventually evolved into a set of heterotopic visions with a fundamentally altered sense of materialism.It provides both glimpses of a genuinely alternative world to the Western academy that its denizens are so prone to critique, one in which oral discourse and dialogism were especially prominent values, and a utopian view of the Western intellectual world from that now-lost space.

Kantian Courage: Advancing the Enlightenment in Contemporary Political Theory

Product : Kantian Courage: Advancing the Enlightenment in Contemporary Political Theory
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : How may progressive political theorists advance the Enlightenment after Darwin shifted the conversation about human nature in the 19th century, the Holocaust displayed barbarity at the historical center of the Enlightenment, and 9/11 showed the need to modify the ideals and strategies of the Enlightenment? Kantian Courage considers how several figures in contemporary political theory-including John Rawls, Gilles Deleuze, and Tariq Ramadan-do just this as they continue Immanuel Kant''s legacy.Rather than advocate specific Kantian ideas, the book contends that political progressives should embody Kantian courage-a critical and creative disposition to invent new political theories to address the problems of the age. It illuminates Kant''s legacy in contemporary intellectual debates; constructs a dialogue among Anglo-American, Continental, and Islamic political theorists; and shows how progressives may forge alliances across political and religious differences by inventing concepts such as the overlapping consensus, the rhizome, and the space of testimony. The book will interest students of the Enlightenment, contemporary political theorists and philosophers, and a general audience concerned about the future of the relationship between Islam and the West.

The Synagogues of New York's Lower East Side: A Retrospective and Contemporary View, 2nd Edition

Product : The Synagogues of New York's Lower East Side: A Retrospective and Contemporary View, 2nd Edition
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : It has often been said that nowhere in the United States can one find a greater collection of magnificent and historic synagogues than on New York''s Lower East Side. As the ultimate destination for millions of immigrant eastern European Jews during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it became the new homeland andhoped-for goldene medinah (promised land) for immigrants fleeing persecution, poverty, and oppression, while struggling to live a new and productive life. Yet to many visitors and students today these synagogues are shrouded in mystery, as documentary information on them tends to be dispersed and difficult to find.With The Synagogues of New York''s Lower East Side, Gerard R. Wolfe fills that void, giving readers unparalleled access to the story of how the Jewish community took root on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Using archival photographs taken by Jo Renee Fine and contemporary shots taken by Norman Borden alongside his text, Wolfe focuses on the synagogues built or acquired by eastern European AshkenaziJewish immigrants during the great era of mass immigration, painting vivid portraits of the individual congregations and the new and vital culture that was emerging. For many, the Lower East Side became the portal to America and the stepping-stone to a new and better life. Today, the synagogues in which these immigrants worshiped remain as a poignant visual reminder of what had become the largest Jewishcommunity in the world. Originally published in 1978, The Synagogues of New York''s Lower East Side became the authoritative study of the subject. Now completely revised and updated with new text, photographs, and maps, along with an invaluable glossary, Wolfe''s book is an essential and accessible source for those who want to understand the varied and rich history of New York''s Lower East Side and its Jewish population. Its readable and illuminating view into the diversity of synagogues-large and small, past and present-and their people makes this book ideal for teachers, students, museum educators, and general readers alike.

The Ideology of Hatred: The Psychic Power of Discourse

Product : The Ideology of Hatred: The Psychic Power of Discourse
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : The 21st century might well be called the age of hatred. This is not because there is more violence in the world but because hatred has been transformed from a concept perceived to be a by-product of personal or collective violence into a discursive field.But what if longstanding antagonisms, especially those between social groups, turned out to involve desire rather than revulsion? The Ideology of Hatred develops a psychosocial framework for understanding this new phenomenon by interrogating unconscious mechanisms within national discourse. It opens new and timely venues for thinking about the paradoxes of love and hate while raising questions about social attachment and otherness. Is it possible that hatred operates by maintaining a safe closeness, enhancing the illusion of separateness as well as a sense of proximity at one and the same time? Could it be that love actually survives through the discourse of hatred as an invisible relation of attachment, necessary but unthinkable? A key term in the book is the political unconscious, a concept signifying the transformation of the unthinkable into a language that disavows the desire of and for the Other. Invoking this and other psychoanalytic concepts, the book proposes that at the heart of all national conflicts lies a riddle: the enigma of desire. The discourse of hatred works today as both a defense mechanism and as a political fantasy whose dream is to annihilate the Other of desire, that familial and different, threatening and intimate Other. Yet because love-in-hatred is denied but not erased, love can therefore also be reimagined. This suggests that untying and recognizing relations of intimacy and dependency can, under certain circumstances, change the discourse of hatred into relations of peace and even friendship.In addition to its strong theoretical component, the book is also based on extensive empirical research, especially into hate relations among Jews and between Jews and Palestinians in Israel.

Last Steps: Maurice Blanchot's Exilic Writing

Product : Last Steps: Maurice Blanchot's Exilic Writing
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Writing, Maurice Blanchot taught us, is not something that is in one''s power. It is, rather, a search for a nonpower that refuses mastery, order, and all established authority. For Blanchot, this search was guided by an enigmatic exigency, an arresting rupture, and a promise of justice that required endless contestation of every usurping authority, an endless going out toward the other.The step/not beyond (le pas au-delà) names this exilic passage as it took form in his influential later work, but not as a theme or concept, because its step requires a transgression of discursive limits and any grasp afforded by the labor of the negative. Thus, to follow the step/not beyond is to follow a kind of event in writing, to enter a movement that is never quite captured in any defining or narrating account.Last Steps attempts a practice of reading that honors the exilic exigency even as it risks drawing Blanchot''s reflective writings and fragmentary narratives into the articulation of a reading. It brings to the fore Blanchot''s exceptional contributions to contemporary thought on the ethico-political relation, language, and the experienceof human finitude. It offers the most sustained interpretation of The Step Not Beyond available, with attentive readings of a number of major texts, as well as chapters on Levinas''s and Blanchot''s relation to Judaism. Its trajectory of reading limns the meaning of a question from The Infinite Conversation that implies an opening and a singular affirmation rather than a closure: How had he come to will the interruption of the discourse?

Spirit, Qi, and the Multitude: A Comparative Theology for the Democracy of Creation

Product : Spirit, Qi, and the Multitude: A Comparative Theology for the Democracy of Creation
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : We live in an increasingly global, interconnected, and interdependent world, in which various forms of systemic imbalance in power have given birth to a growing demand for genuine pluralism and democracy. As befits a world so interconnected, this book presents a comparative theological and philosophical attempt to construct new underpinnings for the idea of democracy by bringing the Western concept of spirit into dialogue with the East Asian nondualistic and nonhierarchical notion of qi. The book follows the historical adventures of the idea of qi through some of its Confucian and Daoist textual histories in East Asia, mainly Laozi, Zhu Xi, Toegye, Nongmun, and Su-un, and compares them with analogous conceptualizations of the ultimate creative and spiritual power found in the intellectual constellations of Western and/or Christian thought-namely, Whitehead''s Creativity, Hegel''s Geist, Deleuze''s chaosmos, and Catherine Keller''s Tehom.The book adds to the growing body of pneumatocentric (Spirit-centered), panentheistic Christian theologies that emphasize God''s liberating, equalizing, and pluralizing immanence in the cosmos. Furthermore, it injects into the theological and philosophical dialogue between the West and Confucian and Daoist East Asia, which has heretofore been dominated by the American pragmatist and process traditions, a fresh voice shaped by Hegelian, postmodern, and postcolonial thought. This enriches the ways in which the pluralistic and democratic implications of the notion of qi may be articulated. In addition, by offering a valuable introduction to some representative Korean thinkers who are largely unknown to Western scholars, the book advances the study of East Asia and Neo-Confucianism in particular. Last but not least, the book provides a model of Asian contextual theology that draws on the religious and philosophical resources of East Asia to offer a vision of pluralism and democracy. A reader interested in the conversation between the East and West in light of the global reality of political oppression, economic exploitation, and cultural marginalization will find this book informative, engaging, and enlightening.

The Republic of the Living: Biopolitics and the Critique of Civil Society

Product : The Republic of the Living: Biopolitics and the Critique of Civil Society
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : This book takes up Foucault''s hypothesis that liberal civil society, far from being a sphere of natural freedoms, designates the social spaces where our biological lives come under new forms of control and are invested with new forms of biopower. In order to test this hypothesis, its chapters examine the critical theory of civil society-from Hegel and Marx through Lukacs, Adorno, Benjamin, and Arendt-from the new horizon opened up by Foucault''s turn to biopolitics and its reception in recent Italian theory.Negri, Agamben, and Esposito have argued that biopolitics not only denotes new forms of domination over life but harbors within it an affirmative relation between biological life and politics that carries an emancipatory potential. The chapters of this book take up this suggestion by locating this emancipatory potential in thebiopolitical feature of the human condition that Arendt called natality. The book proceeds to illustrate how natality is the basis for a republican articulation of an affirmative biopolitics. It aims to renew the critical theory of civil society by pursuing the traces of natality as a surplus of life that resists the oppressive government oflife found in the capitalist political economy, in the liberal system of rights, and in the bourgeois family.By contrast, natality offers the normative foundation for a new republic of the living. Finally, natality permits us to establish a relation between biological life and contemplative life that reverses the long-held belief in a privileged relationship of thinking to the possibility of our death. The result is a materialist, atheologicalconception of contemplative life as eternal life.

Cybertheology: Thinking Christianity in the Era of the Internet

Product : Cybertheology: Thinking Christianity in the Era of the Internet
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Because the Internet has changed and is changing the ways in which we think and act, it must also be changing the ways in which we think Christianity and its theology. Cybertheology is the first book to explore this process from a Catholic point of view. Drawing on the theoretical work of authors such as Marshall McLuhan, Peter Levy, and Teilhard de Chardin, it questions how technologies redefine not only the ways in which we do things but also our being and therefore the way we perceive reality, the world, others, and God. Does the digital revolution affect faith in any sense? Spadaro asks. His answer is an emphatic Yes. But how, then, are we to live well in the age of the Internet?Spadaro delves deeply into various dimensions of the impact of the Net on the Church and its organization, on our understanding of revelation, grace, liturgy, the sacraments, and other classical theological themes. He rightly points out that the digital environment is not merely an external instrument that facilitates human communication or a purely virtual world, but part of the daily experience of many people, a new anthropological space that is reshaping the way we think, know, and express ourselves. Naturally, this calls for a new understanding of faith so that it makes sense to people who live and work in the digital media environment. In developing the notion of cybertheology, Spadaro seeks to propose an intelligence of faith (intellectus fidei) in the era of the Internet.The book''s chapters include reflections on man the decoder and the search engines of God, networked existence and the mystical body, hacker ethics and Christian vision, sacraments and virtual presence, and the theological challenges of collective intelligence.

The Humanities and Public Life

Product : The Humanities and Public Life
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : This book tests the proposition that the humanities can, and at their best do, represent a commitment to ethical reading. And that this commitment, and the training and discipline of close reading that underlie it, represent something that the humanities need to bring to other fields: to professional training and to public life.What leverage does reading, of the attentive sort practiced in the interpretive humanities, give you on life? Does such reading represent or produce an ethics? The question was posed for many in the humanities by the Torture Memos released by the Justice Department a few years ago, presenting arguments that justified the use of torture by the U.S. government with the most twisted, ingenious, perverse, and unethical interpretation of legal texts. No one trained in the rigorous analysis of poetry could possibly engage in such bad-faith interpretation without professional conscience intervening to say: This is not possible.Teaching the humanities appears to many to be an increasingly disempowered profession-and status-within American culture. Yet training in the ability to read critically the messages with which society, politics, and culture bombard us may be more necessary than ever in a world in which the manipulation of minds and heartsis more and more what running the world is all about.This volume brings together a group of distinguished scholars and intellectuals to debate the public role and importance of the humanities. Their exchange suggests that Shelley was not wrong to insist that poets are the unacknowledged legislators of mankind: Cultural change carries everything in its wake. The attentive interpretive reading practiced in the humanities ought to be an export commodity to other fields and to take its place in the public sphere.

Giorgio Agamben: Beyond the Threshold of Deconstruction

Product : Giorgio Agamben: Beyond the Threshold of Deconstruction
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Agamben''s thought has been viewed as descending primarily from the work of Heidegger, Benjamin, and, more recently, Foucault. This book complicates and expands that constellation by showing how throughout his career Agamben has consistently and closely engaged (critically, sympathetically, polemically, and often implicitly) the work of Derrida as his chief contemporary interlocutor.The book begins by examining the development of Agamben''s key concepts-infancy, Voice, potentiality-from the 1960s to approximately 1990 and shows how these concepts consistently draw on and respond to specific texts and concepts of Derrida. The second part examines the political turn in Agamben''s and Derrida''s thinking from about 1990 onward, beginning with their investigations of sovereignty and violence and moving through their parallel treatments of juridical power, the relation between humans and animals, and finally messianism and the politics to come.

Product : Maps for a Fiesta: A Latina/o Perspective on Knowledge and the Global Crisis
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : What can theology offer in the context of neoliberalism, globalization, growing inequality, and an ever more ecologically precarious planet that disproportionately affects the poor? This book, by one of the country''s best-known Latino theologians, explores possibilities for liberation from the forces that would impose certain forms of knowledge on our social world to manipulate our experience of identity, power, and justice.Beautifully written in a refreshingly direct and accessible prose, Maduro''s book is nevertheless built upon subtly articulated critiques and insights. But to write a conventional academic tractatus would have run counter to Maduro''s project, which is built on his argument that ignorance is masked in the language of expertise, while true knowledge is dismissed because it is sometimes articulated in pedestrian language by those who produce it through the praxis of solidarity and struggle for social justice.With a generosity and receptivity to his readers reminiscent of letters between old friends, and with the pointed but questioning wisdom of a teller of parables, Maduro has woven together a twenty-first-century reply to Marx''s Theses on Feuerbach. Neither conventional monograph nor memoir, neither a theological nor a political tract, but with elements of all of these, Maps for a Fiesta arrives as Maduro''s philosophical and theological testament-one that celebrates the knowledge-work and justice-making of the poor.What Maduro offers here is a profound meditation on the relationship between knowledge and justice that could be read as a manifesto against the putatively unknowable world that capitalist chaos has made, in favor of a world that is known by the measure of its collective justice. His fiesta grants us the joy that nourishes us in our struggles, just as knowledge gives us the tools to build a more just society. What Maduro offers is nothing less than an epistemology of liberation.

Dialogue of Love: Breaking the Silence of Centuries

Product : Dialogue of Love: Breaking the Silence of Centuries
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : In 1964, a little-noticed albeit pioneering encounter in the Holy Land between the heads of the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox Church spawned numerous contacts and diverse openings between the two sister churches, which had not communicated with each other for centuries.Fifty years later, Pope Francis and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew meet in Jerusalem to commemorate that historical event and celebrate the close relations that have developed through mutual exchanges of formal visits and an official theological dialogue that began in 1980. This book contains three unique chapters: The first is a sketch of the behind-the-scenes challenges and negotiations that accompanied the meeting in 1964, detailing the immediate consequences of the event and setting the tone for the volume. The second is an inspirational account, interwoven with a scholarly evaluation of the work of the North American Standing Council on Orthodox/Catholic relations over the past decades. The third chapter presents a recently discovered reflection on the meeting that took place fifty years ago by one of the most important Orthodox theologians of the twentieth century, expressing cautious optimism about the future of Christian unity.

Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings

Category : Books>Art and Architecture
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : For more than 40 years, Sally Mann (b. 1951) has made experimental, elegiac, and hauntingly beautiful photographs that explore the overarching themes of existence: memory, desire, death, the bonds of family, and nature’s magisterial indifference to human endeavor. What unites this broad body of work—portraits, still lifes, landscapes, and other studies—is that it is all “bred of a place,” the American South. Mann, who is a native of Lexington, Virginia, uses her deep love of her homeland and her knowledge of its historically fraught heritage to ask powerful, provocative questions—about history, identity, race, and religion—that reverberate across geographic and national boundaries. Organized into five sections—Family, The Land, Last Measure, Abide with Me, and What Remains—and including many works not previously exhibited or published, Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings is a sweeping overview of Mann’s artistic achievements.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Sex Hormone Replacement Therapy addresses important issues in contemporary endocrinology. Its major emphasis is on the consequences of the menopause and on androgen deficiency in the absence of overt disease of the hypothalamus and/or pituitary in men. The use of hormone therapy for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease in post-menopausal women has become an area of major debate, and the pros and cons are examined in detail. Secondary prevention also remains controversial and is addressed in this volume. An issue of particular concern is the treatment of estrogen deficiency symptoms in women with the diagnosis of breast cancer. Whether older men with some androgen deficiency symptoms and equivocally low plasma testosterone concentrations should be treated with androgens is also a matter of great debate, as is the efficacy and safety of plant estrogens in the treatment of menopause-related complaints. Sex Hormone Replacement Therapy will be of interest to students and non-specialists, as well as a wide range of medical practitioners including endocrinologists, gynecologists, rheumatologists and cardiologists.

There, three brothers and a sister fought to hold their family together, struggled to keep their ranch solvent, while they awaited the return of the one person who could shed light on the secrets of the past.QuinceNo sooner had he rescued spitfire Glory Townsend from deadly quicksand than Quince found himself trapped in a quagmire, of emotions far more difficult to escape. His homecoming after five years tracking renegades hadn''t changed his father''s drinking, lessened his rivalry with his brother or resolved the mystery surrounding his mother''s death. But those issues felt like easy going compared to the shaky ground he traversed with Glory. Every time he looked into her flashing green eyes he felt himself sinking deeper. Maybe it was time to stop struggling and admit that only her love could save him.

F. Moritz surveys forty-five years of Moritz''s published poems, from earlier, lesser-known pieces to the widely acclaimed works of the last twenty years. Here are poems of mystery and imagination; of identification with the other; of compassion, judgement, and rage; of love and eroticism; of mature philosophical, sociological, and political analysis; of history and current events; of contemplation of nature; of exaltation and ennui, fullness and emptiness, and the pure succession and splendour of earthly nights and days.The Sparrow is more than a selected poems; it is also a single vast poem, in which the individual pieces can be read as facets of an ever-moving whole. This is the world of A. F. Moritz - a unique combination of lyrical fire and meditative depth, and an imaginative renewal of style and never-ending discovery of form.

Product : Why the Porcupine is Not a Bird: Explorations in the Folk Zoology of an Eastern Indonesian People
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Why the Porcupine Is Not a Bird is a comprehensive analysis of knowledge of animals among the Nage people of central Flores in Indonesia. Gregory Forth sheds light on the ongoing anthropological debate surrounding the categorization of animals in small-scale non-Western societies.Forth''s detailed discussion of how the Nage people conceptualize their relationship to the animal world covers the naming and classification of animals, their symbolic and practical use, and the ecology of central Flores and its change over the years. His study reveals the empirical basis of Nage classifications, which align surprisingly well with the taxonomies of modern biologists. It also shows how the Nage employ systems of symbolic and utilitarian classification distinct from their general taxonomy. A tremendous source of ethnographic detail, Why the Porcupine Is Not a Bird is an important contribution to the fields of ethnobiology and cognitive anthropology.

10 Must-Have Holiday Party Dresses To Get You Through The Season
Posted on Thursday November 16, 2017

Amidst holiday parties, the preparation of feasts, and a glut of friends and family to purchase gifts for, it's hard to tell if the holidays are the most wonderful time of year or the most stressful.

You have enough on your plate as it is; the last thing you want to concern yourself with is finding a dress for all those holiday celebrations. Sometimes you just wish someone would do the work for you.

Well, you're in luck! We've curated a list of 10 must-have holiday party dresses that will dazzle your colleagues, friends, and family. And just like Kate Middleton, we encourage repeat outfits at multiple parties if you're seeing different friend groups.

Sophistication comes in the form of this holiday-appropriate dress from Spanish retailer Massimo Dutti. A simple silhouette is made spectacular with the addition of cut-out bow sleeves and a stand-out colour. This limited-edition dress will be gone in a blink if you don't act fast.

7. Ultimate Tux Blazer Mini-Dress With Pearl Buttons

The menswear trend lives on and we wouldn't have it any other way. This tuxedo-inspired dress from ASOS is great for the no-nonsense party-goer.

Where to get it:ASOS, $57.06

8. Flowing Midi Dress With Long Sleeves

This festive emerald green midi dress from Zara offers everything we love about vintage cuts and details without having to sift through racks of clothing at our favourite vintage boutique.

Where to get it: Draper James, $250

10. Yumi Kim Save Leading Lady Dress

Not all holiday parties are created equal. If you're headed to a fancier affair, you'll need a dress to suit the occasion. This Yumi Kim lace dress featuring a regal mock neck collar, tonal lining and scalloped edging hits the perfect balance of sophisticated and sexy.

Where to get it: Shopbop, $275.29

Winter Boots That Look As Good As They Feel
Posted on Tuesday November 14, 2017

While some parts of the country have already been hit with a coating of snow, it won't be long before all of us Canadians will be trudging through slush, sleet, and icy rains.

If, like us, you're shivering at the thought of Mother Nature's frosty weather, then it's time to seriously consider your winter boot options.

Below are a selection of our favourite winter boots to ensure a season of toasty warm tootsies without sacrificing style.

Kamik Sienna Waterproof Boot

While the rustic outdoorsy styling of the Kamik Sienna boot (Meghan Markle is a fan of the Canadian heritage brand) initially caught our eye, the Thinsulate insulation and lightweight, slip-resistant soles solidified this pair's spot on our list.

Furthermore, Kamik is committed to sustainable manufacturing, with a zero waste target in their plants, 73 per cent domestic production, and a recycling program in place.

Bhava Aspen Hiker

The eco answer to the traditional shearling-lined hiker, this vegan pair from conscientious footwear brand Bhava features Italian vegan shearling and a comfort flex rubber sole, artisanally crafted in Spain and road tested on the tough city streets of New York City.

Vans SK8-HI MTE

For the sneaker-head who refuses to wear boots, these weatherized high tops could be the perfect compromise for facing the elements. Designed with warm linings including a heat retention layer between sockliner and outsole, and a lug sole tested for maximum traction, this sneaker/boot hybrid also features reinforced toecaps to ensure long-wearing durability.

Manitobah Waterproof Tamarack Mukluk

Rated up to -32C, the Tamarak Mukluk features rubber soles displaying Indigenous artwork that details life energy and connection to nature, and uses traditional waterproofing methods.

Committed to supporting Indigenous communities, Manitoba Mukluks invites its customers to direct a portion of their sale to a Manitobah community program of their choice.

Bogs Kettering Boot

While slip-on boots may rate well with the five and under set, sometimes us adults also need an easy fix when we're running out the door in extreme temperatures. Enter the Bogs Kettering boot: rated from temperate to -30C, these boots feature a pull-on handle, Neo-Tech Lite insulation, a moisture-wicking lining, and an insole with odour-resistant technology in every urbanite's favourite colour, black.

Khombu Andie Waterproof Boot

We love the look of the Fair Isle print and the faux fur trim on the Andie Boot from Khombu, perfect for chalet getaways or stylish trips within the city. Not just about looks, this practical boot is waterproof, micro fleece-lined, with Thermolite insulation and a memory foam footbed.

Cougar Creek Waterproof Winter Boots

The festive styling of these cute-as-a-button Creek Winter Boots from Cougar is getting us in the mood for trekking around town and the countryside. We can't wait to slip into the plush lining and padded insole, knowing the rubber sole and waterproof outer will keep our feet warm and dry.

Giuseppe Zanotti Snow Boots With Faux Fur

The everything après ski boot, these killer cuties from Giuseppe Zanotti are styled with a faux fur cuff and metallic plate to cover the Velcro ankle strap. Can't you picture Mariah Carey wearing these babies in Aspen?

Hunter Boots Original Snow Boots

From the brand that brought us iconic rain boots comes this winter-resistant snow boot, complete with a zipped outer shell and drawstring detailing to keep out the cold. Neoprene-lined with a padded sole to minimize ankle slipping, we can't wait to face the elements in these beauties.

Joe Fresh Knit Snow Boots

The latest snow boot from Joe Fresh, this classically cute style is 100 per cent synthetic, with a faux fur lining and pretty knit, ideal to keep you warm and winter-adventure ready.

Roots Nordic Boot Warrior

These gorgeously rugged boots from iconic Canadian brand Roots are available for both men and women, and are designed to withstand severe cold and icy conditions while keeping your feet cozy and dry.

Aquatalia Kiara Boot

Take things up a style notch with this stunning boot from Aquatalia. Shearling-lined with waterproof outer, this is our pick for pairing with leggings or tights over the chilly winter months.

The North Face Women's Thermoball Lace Winter Boots

We love the contrast of the bright laces against this neutral grey winter boot, made of 100 per cent recycled materials. We think the fleece collar lining, Thermoball insulation, and OrthoLite footbed make this simple boot a comfy way to weather the winter.

Pajar Waterproof Winter Boots

Get ready to take on winter in style with this rugged pair of waterproof boots from Pajar. We love the look of the textured, fold-down collar, while the grips on the soles give us peace of mind on icy city sidewalks!

Lupita Nyong'o Has No Time For Magazine's 'Eurocentric' Airbrushing
Posted on Friday November 10, 2017

Lupita Nyong'o.

Even though it's 2017 and women of all cultures and backgrounds are finally being celebrated for their diverse beauty, it seems that not even an Oscar winner can get away with having natural hair.

On Thursday night, actress Lupita Nyong'o took to social media to criticize Grazia magazine for cutting off, and smoothing out, her curly hair.

Posting photographs on Twitter and Instagram, the 34-year-old "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" star showed what she looked like before and after the editors used Photoshop on her image.

In the before pic, Nyong'o is seen rocking a curly ponytail, while in the after pic, the actress' ponytail is gone, replaced with a smooth, super short crop.

In the caption, Nyong'o explains that the magazine clearly photoshopped her image to "fit a more Eurocentric notion" of beauty.

"Disappointed that @GraziaUK edited out & smoothed my hair to fit a more Eurocentric notion of what beautiful hair looks like. [don't touch my hair]," Nyong'o wrote on Twitter.

In a lengthier Instagram post, the "Black Panther" star wrote that it's important that women of colour be embraced for their beauty, "kinky, coily hair" and all.

As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women's complexion, hair style and texture. #dtmh

I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too.

In a statement to The Telegraph, a representative of Grazia magazine apologized to the actress for changing her hair type and noted that they didn't "alter" the image. (Even though they clearly did.)

"Grazia is committed to representing diversity throughout its pages and apologises unreservedly to Lupita Nyong'o.

"Grazia magazine would like to make it clear that at no point did they make any editorial request to the photographer for Lupita Nyong'o's hair to be altered on this week's cover, nor did we alter it ourselves. But we apologise unreservedly for not upholding the highest of editorial standards in ensuring that that we were aware of all alterations that had been made."

After Nyong'o posted her criticism, social media turned out to support the actress.

This incident is far from the first and only time the beauty industry has airbrushed women of colour to fit a specific (namely white) ideal.

Just recently, Solange Knowles called out The London Evening Standard for altering her braids in an image that appeared on the publication's cover. Subsequently, the Standard apologized to the singer for digitally removing her hair.

dtmh @eveningstandardmagazine

A post shared by Solange (@saintrecords) on

In a statement, the Standard said: "The decision to amend the photograph was taken for layout purposes, but plainly we made the wrong call and we have offered our unreserved apologies to Solange."

In that cover story, Solange described how important braiding was to her, noting, "It is an act of beauty, an act of convenience and an act of tradition."

Tabria Majors Proves Plus-Size Models Look Good In Victoria's Secret Underwear Too
Posted on Thursday November 09, 2017

Brooklyn, N.Y.-based model Tabria Majors is challenging rigid fashion standards after recreating a series of her favorite Victoria's Secret photos.

Victoria's Secret is facing stiff new competition from a plus-size, Brooklyn, N.Y.-based model.

The idea that the lingerie company largely showcases thinner models didn't sit right with Tabria Majors.

She scoured through her favourite outfits from Victoria's Secret to prove, as she says, "that curvy girls can rock (and sell) lingerie just as well as straight-size models."

The breathtaking photos she posted on Instagram and Twitter speak for themselves.

"Maybe I'll be a Victoria's Secret Angel this year for Halloween, since it ain't happening in real life," she wrote in an Instagram post on Oct. 31.

"I've been thinking about doing this for a while, and the pieces happened to come together," she said in an interview with HuffPost Canada. "I really want to open the discussion of inclusivity in mainstream media."

Majors said that the Victoria's Sercet has been a staple for decades but they have been repeating the same formula over and over.

"I just want to know why they, and so many other companies, don't cater to the average-sized woman."

It boggles the mind that higher-ups at the lingerie company won't include more plus-sized "angels" among the skinny ones the brand is famous for. Tip: Diversity sells. Literally.

"The main argument I've heard is that it's expensive, time-consuming, and companies don't have the proper resources to expand their sizes," Majors said.

Majors says plus-size industry is lucrative

"I personally don't believe that, primarily because the plus-size industry brings in billions of dollars each year, and the potential profit companies would make should counter any of their hesitations."

However, Sports Illustrated has definitely taken notice of Majors.

The model is currently a finalist for SI's Swim Search, where 15 women will debut their swimwear line and compete for a chance to be featured in the 2018 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.

She's even bragged about her weight online to make it clear she is damn proud of how she looks.

"I'm Tabria Majors, I weigh 218 pounds, and I don't care if you hate my body because I love it," she wrote on Instagram in August.

And in doing so, she's joined famous plus-sized model and body-positive advocate Ashley Graham in fighting the weight stigma.

I'm Tabria Majors, I weigh 218 lbs, and I don't care if you hate my body because I love it 😊

A post shared by Tabria Majors (@tabriamajors) on

She's not the first to post shots of herself beside ads to highlight the lack of diversity — black model Deddeh Howard recreated a series of famous ads last year.

Androgynous model Rain Dove also reimagined Victoria's Secret shoots by Photoshopping their models' faces onto her body with the original image of herself beside them.

Hopefully, they'll understand that everyone ... shouldn't be 'punished' for their size.Tabria Majors

But she says major companies have to stop hesitating to showcase plus-size models.

"I'm sure there's an underlying reason that we're not aware of," Majors said. "Whether it's associated with costs or the company's image, but hopefully, they'll understand that everyone should be able to purchase any style of clothing, and shouldn't be 'punished' for their size."

Anyone at Victoria's Secret taking down notes?

These models are trying to bring you into the revolution. Stop missing it.

Oprah Gives Her Stamp Of Approval To This Canadian Sleepwear Company
Posted on Wednesday November 08, 2017

Oprah Winfrey arrives at the taping of 'Queen Sugar After-Show' on November 7, 2017 in California.

Everyone knows Oprah's stamp of approval is gold, which is why we can't help but freak out at the fact that the talk show queen has named a Canadian sleepwear company as one of her favourite things.

This year, The Sleep Shirt, a Vancouver- and Montreal-based sleepwear company, made the TV host's famous list. Specifically, Oprah noted the Blue Oxford Stripe Shirt as one she would wear as a stylish addition to a day outfit or for simply lounging at home.

"One of our editors wore this oxford cotton sleep shirt to the office with sandals and looked terrific," the 63-year-old revealed. "I'd relax in it at home or wear it as a cover-up. There might even be a few people who'd actually sleep in it."

Naturally, Sleep Shirt creator Alexandra Suhner-Isenberg was thrilled when she heard Oprah's positive review of her nightwear.

"She's such an influential figure, and there hasn't been a single person who hasn't been like 'oh my god' when we tell them the news," the designer told Flare. "To be recognized by such a major person and influencer is so great."

A post shared by Oprah (@oprah) on

Suhner-Isenberg modelled her nightwear after a 19th-century chemise she found at a vintage menswear store in London. She then founded her company in 2012 and has been creating stylish, oversized unisex sleepshirts ever since.

And thanks to the sleepwear trend, the designer's clothes have only been gaining in popularity over the years. Besides Oprah's list of favourite things, The Sleep Shirt has also been featured on Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle site, Goop.

Back in 2012, Suhner-Isenberg told the Vancouver Sun, "In terms of why people love them, we haven't reinvented the wheel, and you can find other brands that do night shirts, but we're known for them, and it's a great product."

Plus, if it's Oprah-approved, you know it's gotta be good!

Faux Fur And Fur-Free Winter Coats And Accessories That'll Keep You Warm This Winter
Posted on Friday November 03, 2017

Luxury giant Gucci's announcement last month to go fur-free in 2018 marks another inspiring step towards cruelty-free and conscientious fashion practices.

While fur is traditionally considered a common option for warmth in cold weather, numerous brands are making the choice to offer synthetic weatherproof fabrics and faux fur details to satisfy the demand for the functionality and aesthetic appeal of a fur coat or trim.

Stella McCartney has long sat at the helm of this movement, and Net-a-Porter announced in June that they would no longer be selling fur on their website, proving that the fashion industry doesn't need to harm animals to look chic.

Whether you want to invest in ethical, cruelty-free products, or are simply looking to stay stylish and warm, we're certain you'll find something to suit your liking in our roundup of fur-free and faux fur winter coats, jackets, hats, and scarves.

1. Frank And Oak Featherless Parka

The latest addition to the endlessly hip Queen Street West strip in Toronto, Frank And Oak offers more than up-to-the-minute style at reasonable prices — we recently discovered their parkas are proudly down-free (this parka in particular uses Thinsulate), and there's not a fur collar in sight.

2. Stella McCartney Fur Free Fur Coat

The OG of ethical practices and sustainable designs, Stella McCartney's #FurFreeFur Elina Coat is the ultimate in animal-friendly luxury. Impeccably designed and beautifully made, we're adding this faux fox fur coat to our dream wish list!

3. The Gap Denim Faux Fur Parka

Trust the Gap to do winter warmth right in denim. We're making a mad dash for this indigo parka with faux fur trim for a trendy transition towards the colder months.

4. Aldo Faux Fur Pom Pom Hat

We're happy to see a cruelty-free take on this trendy toque. This Aldo "Albenise" hat offers some stunning sparkle topped with the softest splash of faux fur.

5. Topshop Luxe Faux Fur Coat

What's not to love about this soft-as-a-bunny faux fur coat from Topshop? We'll be topping our party sparkles and LBDs with this little stunner throughout the season.

6. Lolë Morgan Jacket

Whether you're a bonafide ski sensation or more of a chalet aficionado, this bright jacket from Lolë will have you looking and feeling your best on the slopes. We're fans of the waterproof fabric, bright watermelon hue, and mesh-lined vents under the arms to keep us warm and dry.

7. Aritzia Faux Coyote Fur Pull-Through Scarf

BRB, rushing out to buy this gorgeous silk-lined, faux coyote fur scarf. Whether you're rocking the everyday glam look, or saving this piece for a truly special occasion, this is one winter accessory that you're going to want to own!

8. Old Navy Faux Fur Shearling Vest

We've gotta have this waist-length faux fur shearling vest from Old Navy. It would look stunning styled with jeans and a long sleeve tee, or popped on over a long floral dress to add a seasonal update to a summer favourite.

9. Joe Fresh Herringbone Coat

This grey herringbone coat makes our list for a classic topper that's long on style but won't break the bank. Leave it to Joe Fresh to cover all the necessary details (funnel collar, zip front with snap button closure for extra warmth!), perfect for a stylish transition from day to night.

10. Joe Fresh Hooded Puffer

Nothing says winter is here like the return of the puffer coat. Canada's signature staple for fighting the cold has seen several evolutions from the Michelin Man likeness to this stylish version from Joe Fresh. We love the slim fit and bum and thigh coverage, making our daily run to the dog park/school/grocery store that much more bearable.

11. Wully Outerwear Doe Parka

Serious about stylish outwear and animal kindness, Wully's website keeps a running total of how many animals are saved by shopping #CrueltyFree. We're obsessing over their women's Doe Parka: weatherproof, multiple pockets, and the cutest Canadiana red plaid lining. What more could we want to stay warm this winter?

12. Lululemon Run Fast Gloves

Leave it to Lululemon to make the perfect gloves with all the features: snap closure to keep the pair together, fold top for extra warmth, and sweat-wicking super soft fabric for winter runs or snowball fights.

13. Hoodlamb Ladies' Nordic Nightwatch Parka

Our pick for all-black-everything winter warmth, this 100 per cent vegan parka from Hoodlamb boasts a luscious faux fur removable trim, hemp and organic cotton outer shell, and a Thermore and EcoDown lining, designed to resist extreme cold in full weather resistant chic.

14. One Teaspoon Heartshaker Faux Fur Coat

With a little bit of rock 'n roll and a whole lot of vintage styling, we're voting this patchwork faux fur jacket with vegan leather trim an absolute showstopper.

15. Vaute 'The Lincoln Future' Coat

We can't wait to bundle up in this cozy full-length coat made of 100 per cent recycled, windproof, snow resistant ripstop, and insulated with Primaloft ECO, also made of 100 per cent recycled fibres. Customer reviews claim this coat is a game changer for those of us who don't exactly love winter and we'd have to agree: a drawstring hood, internal belt, and ribbing at the cuffs, as well as a pretty princess cut make this coat a winter wardrobe essential.

The 2017 Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bra Is Here, And It's Fantastic
Posted on Thursday November 02, 2017

It's that time of year again.

Halloween is over, there's a hint of festivity in the air, snow dare we say is on the way, and it's all leading up to the one magical moment merrymakers young and old look forward to all year: The Victoria's Secret Fashion show.

The highlight of the show, the Fantasy Bra, was revealed Wednesday, and, as expected, it's fantastic.

The bra, designed by world-renowned jeweler Mouawad, is valued at US$2 million and is set by hand with nearly 6,000 gemstones: diamonds, yellow sapphires, and blue topaz in 18 karat gold, Victoria's Secret revealed. It took 350 hours to create.

Model Lais Ribeiro will wear the 2017 Champagne Nights Fantasy bra for the first time on the runway, Victoria's Secret announced Wednesday.

Ribeiro, 27, is the fourth black model to don the bra, Teen Vogue reports. Tyra Banks wore the bra in 1997 and 2004, Selita Ebanks had the honour in 2007, and Jasmine Tookes rocked the runway in last year's version.

Being chosen to wear the Fantasy Bra is a career-making moment for a Victoria's Secret runway model, also known as an "Angel," according to Refinery29.

Ribeiro is "beyond honoured," she wrote on Instagram.

"I am very happy and thankful for my Victoria's Secret family for trusting me and all the support from my on family, friends and fans," Ribeiro said.

I'm sorry but the pictures will just keep coming! 😜

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show airs Nov. 28.

The new collection will feature bras, underwear and lingerie in shimmering champagne shades.

What The Heck Is In Halloween Makeup Anyway?
Posted on Friday October 27, 2017

Unknown ingredients in Halloween makeup may spook you, but with some helpful tips and expert advice, painting your (or your little one's) face, this All Hallows' Eve will be a treat.

Narrowing down who or what you'll transform into is one problem, piecing the look together is another. But when it comes to things like face paint or makeup, it's worth spending a bit more on high-quality products to guarantee a safer experience for you and your kids.

Earlier on HuffPost:

In a study by the Breast Cancer Fund in 2016, 48 Halloween face paints were tested — all of which are marketed to kids. They found 21 of these products had trace amounts of at least one heavy metal, while some products contained as many as four metals. Some of these harmful ingredients included styrene, formaldehyde, lead, cadmium and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as toluene and benzene.

"You should buy the products at established costume stores, not pop-ups that open only for a few weeks before Halloween, or at your pharmacy where costume makeup kits are inexpensive, but are generally poorer quality," says Dr. Sandy Skotnicki, assistant professor at the University of Toronto and medical director at the Bay Dermatology Centre.

In this case, the more expensive the makeup the better quality, as it's not likely mass-produced."

When shopping for Halloween makeup, avoid any flimsy packaging with small amount of products (like those paint sets with numbers on them) — these tend to be products that are created for just the season.

"As dermatologists, we usually tell patients face creams that cost more are not that much better for your skin. But in this case, the more expensive the makeup, the better quality as it's not likely mass-produced," Skotnicki says.

Skotnicki also suggests avoiding any products that contain lead and ensuring the product has been vetted by government agencies. But you don't have to panic over things like dyes in face paint, since FD&C grade dyes are found in everything from lipstick to cake mixes. Simply, read the label.

The most common ingredients found in cheap makeup that could irritate the skin include alcohol, fragrances, artificial dyes, mica (which gives shimmer), glue, adhesives, waxes and oils.

Applying glue to bare skin doesn't require a dermatologist to tell you that this may cause a bad reaction.

Certain fluorescent or luminescent dyes can also contain colour additives that many not be government-approved, and that fake blood? It is made of a red dye that could cause irritation if it reacts with a petroleum base, notes healthcare site Vermont Urgent Care.

"Let your kids have fun and of course, use common sense. Applying glue to bare skin doesn't require a dermatologist to tell you that this may cause a bad reaction."

Skotnicki recommends testing a small amount of product on your child's ear a few days before if you want to ensure there are no allergies or irritations, and avoid adhesives and glues altogether on children under the age of two.

"Irritants are cumulative — it does not have to be one thing, it can be all together that cause the irritation and I would argue that is usually the case," Skotnicki said. "Another way of putting it — it is not the eye shadow, it's the eye shadow and eyeliner, and eyelashes all working together to cumulatively cause a reaction."

For makeup and special effects artist Samantha St John, Halloween is celebrated everyday in October. Her 28,000 followers on Instagram can expect scary (and sometimes gory) looks with her 31 days of Halloween posts. From split skulls to gouged-out eyes, St John's looks require safe products and an attentive skin care routine.

"My favourite things to use are water-activated paints for body art; silicone and alcohol paints for my special effects," explains the Vancouver-based artist.

I always use some type of barrier cream to create space between the prosthetic and my skin.

"Removal is the most important part... I always use some type of barrier cream to create space between the prosthetic and my skin, and I also make sure to safely remove adhered pieces."

St John recommends Telesis 5 remover and Isopropyl Myristate for heavier looks and prosthetics. For body paint, she uses the Franklin & Whitman's cleansing serum. St John also recommends avoiding latex, as it is a common irritant.

If using makeup from your personal collection on your trick or treaters, Courtney Kelly, beautyBOUTIQUE Manager for Shoppers Drug Mart says avoid sharing any eye products like mascara or eyeliner, and avoid using glitter around the eyes. Sanitize all lip products with rubbing alcohol before and after you use them.

As for your own costume, Kelly recommends playing with makeup already in your cosmetics bag.

The rise in popularity of colour correctors also means you may have some non-traditional colours at home.

"The great part of this is you already know whether or not the product works for you so you avoid any issues the night of," she said.

"The rise in popularity of colour correctors also means you may have some non-traditional colours at home that you can use as face paint instead of buying a new product."

To avoid any skin nightmare the following morning, use the golden rule when it comes to makeup and skincare — take it all off. Kelly recommends Dermablend Milk Makeup remover.

"Even if you get home late, don't forget to remove all of your eye makeup and apply a moisturizer before bed. Your skin will thank you in the morning."

You've Been Washing Your Face Wrong This Whole Time
Posted on Friday October 27, 2017

We get it — you want beautiful skin (who doesn't?), but your morning skincare routine usually consists of splashing some water on your face in between sips of coffee, or standing under the shower head and hoping for the best.

Thoroughly cleansing your skin is more important in the evening, anyway, when you want to remove all traces of that day's makeup and grime, right?

Wrong, according to a dermatologist.

Taking the time to properly cleanse your skin in the morning is just as important, dermatologist Natasha Cook told Daily Mail Australia this week. A simple "wash and go" isn't going to cut it.

"Cleansing in the morning is good to prepare for your application of your daily serums and skincare," Cook said.

It will act as an effective base and prepare your skin for that day's makeup application, she added. And taking care of your face, morning and night, is the key to a clear complexion, Cook said.

Dermatologists recommend a gentle cleanser.


Choosing the right cleanser is key


"The single biggest mistake I see people making is choosing the wrong cleanser," Cook said.

The Canadian Dermatology Association (CDA) recommends choosing products that are unscented or fragrance-free, do not contain common allergens, are non-comedogenic, and have a low potential for irritation. Brands such as Marcelle, Avene, and Garnier have products that have earned the CDA seal of approval.

It's also important to keep in mind your skin type when you're removing your makeup, dermatologist Julia Carroll previously told HuffPost Canada. Products with alcohol should be avoided by anyone with sensitive skin, Carroll said, and oil-based makeup removers should be avoided by those who break out easily.


What about double-cleansing?


Double-cleansing, or washing your face twice in one sitting, isn't always a bad idea, especially if you're wearing a lot of makeup or sunscreen, Cook told The Independent.

Double-cleansing can tackle different types of impurities.

Just be wary of over-cleansing, since that can irritate the skin and make acne worse, Cook said. She recommended using micellar water to pre-cleanse, and then use a gentle formula cleanser.

Micellar water is made up of tiny balls of cleansing oil molecules suspended in soft water.

"The idea is that micelles are attracted to dirt and oil, so they are able to draw out impurities without drying out the skin," dermatologist Hadley King previously told HuffPost. "Therefore, micellar water can be used as a facial wash, makeup remover and moisturizer all in one."

Issa Rae Is Proud To Represent Black Women For CoverGirl
Posted on Wednesday October 25, 2017

Issa Rae attends Black Girls Rock! 2017 at New Jersey Performing Arts Center on August 5, 2017.

Being a CoverGirl ambassador means a lot to Issa Rae.

When the 32-year-old actress revealed she would be the new face of the brand in September, she noted how, as "an awkward black girl in high school," she would see the beauty giant's ads in magazines and sing their slogan in her head.

But now that the shock of her new title has worn off (sort of), Rae revealed her pride in being able to represent women who look like her.

"[When it happened] I called my mom, I told my friends, and they were all super excited," she told Cosmopolitan in a recent interview. "To see the response that people had, I felt even more validated and more touched. It showed the support out there and that the news struck a chord and that people feel represented in a way that they hadn't before."

People feel represented in a way that they hadn't before.

A quick look at Twitter proves that people are loving the brand's decision to make the "Insecure" star one of their spokesmodels, not only because she's an inspiring role model, but because she represents women of colour too.

CoverGirl has made noticeable efforts to be more diverse and inclusive as of late by not only adding more women of colour to their list of ambassadors, such as Rae and Ayesha Curry, but by also including older spokesmodels, such 69-year-old Canadian beauty Maye Musk.

As a result, even Rae has applauded the brand for being more inclusive.

"Becoming a CoverGirl means a lot because the brand recognizes just how important it is for people to embrace their individuality and express themselves in unique and diverse ways," the 32-year-old said in September. "This has been a major part of my personal journey, and a message that I want to share with others."

The World's First Lesbian Bridal Magazine Is Finally Here
Posted on Tuesday October 24, 2017

It is 2017, after all.

As an Australian couple launches the world's first lesbian bridal magazine a glossy, photo-filled celebration of love called Dancing with Her the internet is saying "finally."

The magazine, which officially launched Tuesday with its first print edition, comes just as Australians are in the midst of voting on whether same-sex marriage should be legalized.

Nearly 12 million Australians, or three quarters of eligible voters, have mailed in their ballots so far, Reuters reports. The government has said it would put a proposal before parliament if a majority vote "yes." That would make Australia the 25th nation to legalize same-sex marriage, according to Reuters.

Dancing With Her is a creative, inclusive and real wedding publication for women who have been left underrepresented for too long.Tara Baker and Arlia Hassell

Same-sex marriage has been legal in Canada since 2005. Since then, the number of same-sex couples in Canada has increased by 60 per cent, according to Statistics Canada. About one per cent of all couples in Canada are same-sex couples.

Founders Tara Baker and Arlia Hassell who celebrated their engagement in 2016 created the magazine to fill the gap they discovered while trying to plan their own nuptials in a hetero-normative wedding industry, they write on the Dancing With Her website.

The couple is "passionate about diversity within wedding media, and as two women in love, want to see that represented in wedding material," they said.

"Dancing With Her is a creative, inclusive and real wedding publication (print magazine and online blog) for women who have been left underrepresented for too long."

Dancing With Her is a celebration of women in love, according to the magazine's tagline.

It boasts over 100 pages of real wedding stories, editorials, a wedding-planning journal, and a directory of vendors across Australia and the United States.

And, of course, there are the beautiful photos splashed across the magazine's Instagram page ahead of the launch.

Kelly Clarkson Says Body Image Pressures Caused Her To Have Suicidal Thoughts [UPDATED]
Posted on Tuesday October 24, 2017

UPDATE: Kelly Clarkson responded to reports that she contemplated suicide while battling body image pressures to be "really skinny." On Tuesday, the singer clarified her remarks on Twitter:

Earlier on HuffPost:

No celebrity is exempt from body image pressures, including Kelly Clarkson.

In a new interview with Attitude, the 35-year-old singer got real about the self-image struggles she faced after being catapulted into stardom following her 2002 win on "American Idol."

"When I was really skinny, I wanted to kill myself," she told the British magazine. "I was miserable, like inside and out, for four years of my life. But no one cared, because aesthetically you make sense."

Clarkson revealed that she was pressured by executives to keep her body image on par with pop stars like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera during her first years of fame.

"It was a very dark time for me. I thought the only way out was quitting," she said. "I like wrecked my knees and my feet because all I would do is put in headphones and run. I was at the gym all the time."

Kelly Clarkson sings after winning 'American Idol' on Sept. 4, 2002.

By the time Clarkson released her third studio album, My December, in 2007, she had had enough. Not only did she channel her struggles into her music, but she decided to get rid of the negative people in her life.

"There's a song on My December called 'Sober.' There's this line 'picked the weeds but kept the flowers' and I just live my life by that because you are who you surround yourself with," she explained to the mag.

I was around some really negative people, and I got out of it because I had a lot of great people there too.

"I was around some really negative people, and I got out of it because I had a lot of great people there too," she continued. "It was a case of turning around, facing them and walking toward the light."

Clarkson has been open about her body image issues in the past, and in 2007, she revealed to CosmoGIRL! that she battled bulimia for six months in Grade 7.

Kelly Clarkson arrives at Variety's Power Of Women: Los Angeles on October 13, 2017.

In the 15 years since she first won "American Idol," the mom-of-two has come a long way and found self-acceptance with her body.

Last week, while giving a private performance in New York to debut her new song, "Whole Lotta Woman," Clarkson told the audience, "Too skinny, too fat, too blonde — so much blah. This is who I am and I'm happy. Happy looks different on everyone."

She later elaborated her thoughts on body image to the Daily Mail, saying, "The media has always been obsessed with [my size]. And I have felt conflicted over the years. Do you address it? Do you talk about it? Because then you just add to the noise.

"But people like me to talk about it, so I don't really mind carrying that flag. I love that people come up to me and say: 'Because you are comfortable in your skin, you have made me more comfortable in mine.' That's the best compliment ever."

16 Cruelty-Free Beauty Brands You Can Find In Or That Ship To Canada
Posted on Tuesday October 24, 2017

Those of us who are socially conscious animal and beauty lovers know how hard it can be to find ethical, cruelty-free beauty products.

Not only do many of the big beauty brands out there (including Estée Lauder, Avon, Clinique, Maybelline, and L'Oreal) still test on animals, pay for animal testing in China, or commission/contract animal testing, but there are laws in Canada that allow beauty companies to test on animals.

Undated file photo of rabbits being held in stocks during eye irritancy tests for cosmetics.

But the good news is that on Oct. 4, the Senate Standing Committee on Social Affairs, Science and Technology unanimously voted in favour of S-214, the Cruelty Free Cosmetics Act. This bill would prohibit not only cosmetic animal testing in Canada, but also the sale of cosmetic products or ingredients that have been newly testing elsewhere in the world, reports the Animal Alliance of Canada.

The proposed legislation will move to debate and a final vote in the Canadian Senate, and if the bill passes, it will move to the House of Commons.

Here in Canada, [animal testing] remains perfectly legal for cosmetic chemicals to be dripped into rabbits' eyes and spread on their delicate skin, all for the sake of a new lipstick and skin cream.

"Cosmetic testing on animals is an outdated, needless practice with no place in a modern and progressive society," Troy Seidle, Humane Society International's (HSI) senior director of research and toxicology said in a statement. "Yet here in Canada, it remains perfectly legal for cosmetic chemicals to be dripped into rabbits' eyes and spread on their delicate skin, all for the sake of a new lipstick and skin cream."

The alternatives to these methods, notes the New England Anti-Vivisection Society (NEAVS), include using donated human cells and tissues in vitro, computer simulations and genetic testing.

According to a poll conducted by Animal Alliance and HSI, 81 per cent of Canadians support a national ban on cosmetic animal testing.

Anita Roddick of the Body Shop and comedian Alexei Sayle challenge the Cosmetic, Toiletry & Perfumery Association to back an EU ban for cosmetics testing on animals in London.

So how can you tell whether a beauty product is cruelty-free? For starters, check out the lists of brands on PETA, Cruelty-Free Kitty, Logical Harmony and Leaping Bunny.

PETA also has a searchable database, so if you're unsure whether the product you're interested in is cruelty-free, you can just type in the name of the brand and PETA will do the work for you. Meanwhile, Cruelty-Free Kitty, Logical Harmony, and PETA also have lists of companies that do test on animals.

Below are 16 cruelty-free beauty brands — from drugstore brands to high-end ones — you can either buy in Canada or that will ship to Canada.

DIY Halloween Costumes That Are Creepy AF
Posted on Monday October 23, 2017

There are some who enjoy playing dress up and going all out for Halloween, and we are among those Halloween-loving people. The best time to be the scariest version of yourself is October 31st and you don't need a pro to help you scare the bejesus out of someone.

Here are 15 creepy AF looks to inspire your inner demon.

1. Billy the Puppet from "Saw"

This is a relatively easy tutorial. To pull off Billy the Puppet from the "Saw" and "Jigsaw" movies, simply paint your face white and use black makeup around the eyes. Use red paint to make circles on the apples of the cheeks. Finish the look with red lipstick, followed by a faint black line from the corner of the lips to the chin. Voila!

2. Regan from "The Exorcist"

To be the possessed girl from "The Exorcist," all you'll need is a little face paint to mark scratches over your face. Use a sponge with green paint for that gross stuff around the lips, get yourself a flowered nightgown, and you're good to go.

3. "Black Swan"

This is another look that looks both amazing and creepy. Use white face paint and black liner for the eyes. You can fill in the eye makeup with white eyeshadow and use a shade of burgundy on the lips.

4. Samara Morgan from "The Ring"

Samara from "The Ring" is creepy AF. You'll just need a brunette wig and drawn-on cuts and bruises over your face. Put on some contacts and stain those teeth for a wicked grin.

5. Uncle Fester from "The Addams Family"

Uncle Fester is another easy one to master. Just draw black circles around the eyes, find a high-necked black shirt and give a wide-eyed look all night long.

6. A devil

For some red devil glam, paint the face red and use shimmery black shadow for the eyes. For an extra sinful look, pair your lips with red shimmery lipstick.

7. The nun from "The Conjuring"

What you'll need for this look is white face paint and use black face paint around the eyes. Then start drawing faint lines as wrinkles. Use some contour to define the cheekbones and the smile lines. And finally, add black lipstick and then smudge it around the lips for a creepy look.

8. "The Corpse Bride"

For this "Corpse Bride" look, paint your face, neck and shoulders with blue colour, even the brows. Then use black paint to create a high brow point. Use fake lashes and contour the nose and cheekbones. Apply pink lipstick and get a blue wig to complete the look.

9. Pennywise from "It"

To scare the living daylights out of anyone, go for the iconic clown. Simply paint your face white and use red lipstick or paint to enhance the lips. Extend the lip lines upwards from the corners of the mouth to the eyes. Oh, and don't forget the red nose. Then give your best creepy smile all night long while whispering, "You'll float, too."

10. Edward Scissorhands

This one requires a lot of contouring for that Johnny Depp look. You can start by using black paint for cuts over the face. Get a wig for that messy hair and use a touch of burgundy on the lips.

11. Chucky

To be the iconic Chucky from "Child's Play," just put a few stitches on your face and you're a serial killer on the loose. You'll only need red, black and white paint to create this look.

12.Princess Ahmanet from "The Mummy"

For Princess Ahmanet, you'll need black paint to draw ancient symbols across your face. Use black eyeshadow around the eyes and over the lips. To be extra, you can paint double irises over your lids.

13. The Joker

The Joker is a classic and you'll be the most wanted psycho at the party. Buy yourself some white face paint, red for the lips and slight black shadow under the eyes. Dye your hair green (or grab a green wig) for that extra creepy look.

14. "Game of Thrones"

A post shared by Anahy (@glassjawbabe) on

This "Game of Thrones" look might take some more time, but it's well worth it. If you have fishnet tights, cut out a piece to use as a stencil for the snakeskin print over the forehead. Use black shadow for smoky eyes and for lining the lips. You'll also need black shadow for contouring the cheekbones.

15. Sugar skull makeup

This one's easy — you'll just need a lot of face paint colours. Start by painting the base white and add blue circles around the eyes. Then use a paintbrush to draw designs over the face.
