Popular Culture and New Media: The Politics of Circulation

Product : Popular Culture and New Media: The Politics of Circulation
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Popular culture and new media are deeply interwoven, yet they are often thought of as separate spheres. This book explores the material and everyday intersections between popular culture and new media. Using a range of interdisciplinary resources the chapters open up a series of hidden dimensions – including objects and infrastructures, archives, algorithms, data play and the body – that force us to rethink our understanding of culture as it is today. Through an exploration of its intersections with new media, this book reveals the centrality of data circulations in the formation, organization and relations of popular culture. It shows how digital data accumulate as a result of our routine engagements with culture. It then examines the ways that these data fold-back into culture through algorithmic process, through play and through mediated bodily experiences. The book asks how we might conceptualize and understand culture as it continues to be reshaped by these recursive circulations of data.

The Social Life of Connectivity in Africa

Product : The Social Life of Connectivity in Africa
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : In an age of new technologies of connections, understanding social transformations in Africa through connections has become pivotal. Africa has now arrived at a juncture, referred to as a ''post-global'' moment, where connections have turned the global to a normalcy in Africa and elsewhere. Yet a model to understand social transformations from the perspective of the social life of connections is still lacking. Noting that the nature of the connection is often overlooked in social theory, the studies outlined in this volume explore how connectedness continues to change Africa and how Africa continues to shape the social life of connections.

A Multi-Gear Strategy for Economic Recovery

Product : A Multi-Gear Strategy for Economic Recovery
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : This book examines the policy implications of the fundamental theoretical errors exposed in the companion volume on Toxic Economic Theory: Correction of the microeconomic market-value fallacy (the root cause of the economic crisis) suggests radical accounting reform based on the segregation of fact from opinion. Disclosure of planned investment rates and their continuous monitoring are essential for curing balance-sheet myopia and for bringing the management of banks and large corporations under the control of market forces. Correction of the macroeconomic single-gear fallacy (the main obstacle to economic recovery) indicates that the economy is a multi-gear machine. To operate efficiently at its full employment potential, structural reform to improve the lubricant of free competition is necessary but not sufficient. Freedom of circulation to maintain the economy in top gear is equally vital. Counter-productive attempts to shrink economies out of debt stem from the single-gear obsession with competition to the exclusion ofcirculation. A multi-gear strategy for economic recovery requires the repudiation of two centuries of tax mythology. Radical reform of the current dysfunctional tax system and its integration with macroeconomic policy can create an automatic mechanism, notonly for economic gear-changing, but also for the disposal of inflationary waste. By establishing regional fiscal autonomy, multi-gear strategy can solve the problem of imbalances between or within countries, and also within single-currency unions.Rapid economic growth without inflation – essential for economic recovery – is impossible until economic policy is liberated from the stranglehold of single-gear fundamentalism. As a science, economics may be dismal; as a religion, it is positivelylethal.

Religion in Disputes: Pervasiveness of Religious Normativity in Disputing Processes

Product : Religion in Disputes: Pervasiveness of Religious Normativity in Disputing Processes
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Religion manifests in an array of disputes in different geographical contexts. Here, the contributors examine such questions through case studies from Europe, the United States, Israel, Africa, and South and Southeast Asia. The conflicts range from those involving religious authorities to disputes in non-religious contexts in which actors nevertheless invoke religious rhetoric and repertoires and disputes in settings that at first sight have nothing to do with classical disputing processes, such as rituals and crisis pregnancy centers. The analyses are grounded in extensive ethnographical and historiographical research and show how different dimensions of the religious may enter into, transform, affect, and be affected by the course and outcome of dispute processes at different moments of their unfolding.

A Century of American Economic Review: Insights on Critical Factors in Journal Publishing

Product : A Century of American Economic Review: Insights on Critical Factors in Journal Publishing
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : By using information collected from numerous American Economic Review publications from the last 100 years, Torgler and Piatti examine the top publishing institutions to determine their most renowned AER papers based on citation success. Areas of interest include how often an individual can publish in the AER, how equally successful citations are distributed and who the top AER publishing authors are. The book explores what the level of cooperation is among authors and what drives systems such as the alphabetical name ordering. Torgler and Piatti critically examine the individual characteristics of AER authors, editors, editorial board members and referees and even tackle more intricate details such as the frequency of female publications in the AER. The authors observe and analyse the relationship between academic age and publication performance to see if there is any pattern on these factors and citation success. The book then goes on to analyse data concerning awards, and whether awards can increase the probability of publishing in the AER at a later stage.

The Media of Testimony: Remembering the East German Stasi in the Berlin Republic

Product : The Media of Testimony: Remembering the East German Stasi in the Berlin Republic
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : In The Media of Testimony, Sara Jones examines the use of eyewitness testimony in different cultural forms. The focus is on memories of the East German State Security Service (Stasi) in autobiographical writing, memorial museums and documentary film. Combining theoretical models from diverse disciplines, Jones develops a distinctive and interdisciplinary approach to testimony, memory and mediation. She considers the processes by which authors, directors and heritage managers seek to generate authority and authenticity for particular versions of contested histories. Contemporary uses of eyewitness testimony in popular history can extend communities of memory to include those with no direct experience of the represented past. However, this may result in a narrowing of history and a disinheritance of particular social groups. The Media of Testimony represents a significant contribution to studies of German cultural memory and to understanding the ways in which memories circulate and become salient in the media-dominated societies of the present.

Ramparts Of Empire: British Imperialism And India's Afghan Frontier, 1918-1948

Product : Ramparts Of Empire: British Imperialism And India's Afghan Frontier, 1918-1948
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : For generations of British soldiers and administrators, India''s North-West Frontier with Afghanistan constituted an imperial obsession. A combination of fears about the local Pashtun population and external invasion from Afghanistan and Russia convinced the rulers of British India that the region was the one place in the empire where Britain could suffer a ''knock-out blow.'' In this cultural and political study, Brandon Marsh examines the power and infl uence of this belief on the Afghan frontier, India as a whole, and British imperialism between 1918 and 1948. This book explores British attempts to isolate the frontier after the First World War, the relationship between colonial nationalism and state sanctioned violence in the region, and the significant connection between British perceptions about the Afghan frontier and the collapse of the British Raj in India.

Transnational Islam in Interwar Europe: Muslim Activists and Thinkers

Product : Transnational Islam in Interwar Europe: Muslim Activists and Thinkers
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : The study of Muslim experiences in and with Europe during the interwar period is still in its initial phase. Addressing a gap, this volume brings together the insights of an interdisciplinary group of scholars who examine Muslim networks and actors in interwar Europe with a particular focus on the transnational dimensions of their activities. Drawing on official and personal archives and contemporary writings that have been largely ignored in the study of Europe, the contributors place Muslim activities within global political and intellectual history. They analyze significant socio-political ideals and religious affiliations, as well as the broader social, political, religious, and cultural mobility patterns of Muslims as new social actors in the Europe of that era. Together, the chapters reveal the importance of the geopolitical and intellectual East–West networks of the interwar period.

Jewish-israeli National Identity And Dissidence: The Contradictions Of Zionism And Resistance

Product : Jewish-israeli National Identity And Dissidence: The Contradictions Of Zionism And Resistance
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : This unique book provides a critical perspective on identity in questioning how Israeli Jews manage and manifest their concern for the Palestinian Other, eschewing presenting identities as concrete and, rather, examines their creation through discourse. Zionism and the Israeli state have constructed a Jewish national identity premised on demonisation of the Other. This book explores how internal critics use alternative discourses of identity to re-imagine this Jewish-Israeli national identity, and considers how they might fail. It combines a rigorous theoretical analysis of nationalism with an engaging examination of the identifications and contradictions of eleven Jewish-Israeli individuals. Featuring, among others, high profile journalist Gideon Levy, veteran maverick Uri Davis and literary novelist Dorit Rabinyan, Attwell provides a revealing insight into national identity, political dissent, conflict and resistance.

Foucault's Heterotopia in Christian Catacombs: Constructing Spaces and Symbols in Ancient Rome

Product : Foucault's Heterotopia in Christian Catacombs: Constructing Spaces and Symbols in Ancient Rome
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Ringing the city like pearls on a necklace and plunging beneath the earth into darkness, the Christian catacombs of Rome have inspired and captivated people for centuries. This book takes a new approach to the study of the catacombs, using spatial theory to understand the way the catacombs were constructed, decorated, and used. Relying on the theoretical work of Michel Foucault and Henri Lefebvre, this book moves beyond traditional forms of analysis to turn a new lens to the work of understanding these monuments of early Christianity. The location and form of the Callistus Catacomb, the art found inside, the texts referenced in that art, and the community practices performed and referenced deep underground form the heart of this innovative take on the grand burial sites of the early church.

Description : English Studies: The State of the Discipline, Past, Present, and Future is an accessible and wide-ranging consideration of concerns facing English Studies and its unique position within the university and society.

Animals And African Ethics

Product : Animals And African Ethics
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : African ethics is primarily concerned with community and harmonious communal relationships. The claim is frequently made on behalf of African moral beliefs and customs that African society does not objectify and exploit nature and natural existents, unlike Western moral attitudes and practices. This book investigates whether this claim is correct by examining religious and philosophical thought, as well as traditional cultural practices in Africa. Through exploration of what kind of status is reserved for other-than-human animals in African ethics, Horsthemke argues that moral perceptions and attitudes on the African continent remain resolutely anthropocentric, or human-centred. Although values like ubuntu (humanness) and ukama (relationality) have been expanded to include nonhuman nature, animals have no rights, and human duties to them are almost exclusively 'indirect'. Animals and African Ethics concludes by asking whether those who, following their own liberation, continue to exploit and oppress other creatures, are not thereby contributing to their own dehumanization. --

Product : Race, Empire, And The Crisis Of The Subprime
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Finance and Investing>Banks and Banking
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Predatory lending of subprime mortgages targeting the most economically vulnerable minority communities helped trigger the current global financial crisis. This special issue of the journal American Quarterly explores the ways in which "subprime" becomes a racial signifier in the current debate about the causes and fixes for a capitalism itself in crisis. It signifies both the accumulated dispossession of racial exclusion in the twenty-first century gilded age in the United States and Global North more broadly, as well as the imperial ambitions of three decades of U.S.–led neoliberal rule over the Global South. Essays are divided into sections: debt, discipline, and empire; the pathologies of debt; and security, space, and resistance in the post-racial urban setting. Focusing on race and empire, that is, on racial and global subjugation, the contributors expose the ethical-political underpinnings of the current global financial crisis.Contributors include:Radhika BalakrishnanJordan T.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : In 1863, Stockport warehouseman William John Battersby refused to change the date of his wedding, a decision which ultimately cost him his job. He could never have guessed that this would be a pivotal moment not just in his life, but ultimately in the history of the British hat industry. Starting his own business in a rented building with just twenty-one employees, within in twenty years he had a purpose-built factory bearing his name that was to endure for over a century and export to every continent. A proud and industrious workforce helped the business prosper over generations and through two world wars until the latter half of the twentieth century saw the once-great industry decline and finally fade away. Using a wonderful collection of contemporary, largely unseen photographs, accounts and documents, Battersby Hats: An Illustrated History shows the progress of the firm and also the private triumphs and tragedies of the family who ran it. A fascinating celebration of the efforts and dreams of the founder, his descendants, and the employees who sustained this world-famous firm throughout its existence.

Category : Books>Business and Finance>Economics
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Since the financial collapse, the ‘Flat White Economy’ has spawned four times as many jobs than London lost in the crisis. London is now growing one and a half times faster than Hong Kong as a result. Leading economist Douglas McWilliams describes how this meteoric success, named after its favorite coffee and centered on East London, has swapped the city’s champagne and supercars lifestyle for bicycles and boho flats and has become the prototype for digital cities that will change both the rest of the UK and other parts of the world as well. The book shows how these developments have had a massive economic impact, and affect politics and lifestyles. It addresses the impact of the FWE on North South divide in the UK and its equivalents in other parts of the world. And controversially it also shows how a driving force behind this new economy is immigration and the creativity that is generated when talented people of different backgrounds and mindsets end up working together.

A smug suburbanite becomes obsessed with the hybrids, the wandering mob of intellectual vagrants overrunning his complacent little cul de sac, snacking on p‚te and reciting poetry; a father and daughter''s post-apocalyptic Pacific island civilization, built of floating garbage and sustained entirely by rubber, is beginning to fray, literally, revealing something disastrously like moss beneath its smooth synthetic skin; following an appendectomy, a young woman''s belly starts transmitting what sound like Russian radio signals; a young publishing assistant, demoted at work and dumped by her boyfriend, finds herself unable to control her strange new appetites.Inhabited, occupied, possessed -- suddenly, the world as they knew it is no longer quite recognizable, not to mention safe -- if it actually was safe before. But it''s the surprising, often revelatory ways in which Cram''s characters navigate through these strange new landscapes that imbue these stories with complexity, grace and lustre.For a preview of the stories in Radio Belly search for Large Garbage: A Radio Belly Single -- downloadable for free from all ebook retailers.

Description : In The Peoples of the Caribbean, archaeologist Nicholas J. Saunders assembles for the first time a comprehensive sourcebook on the archaeology, folklore, and mythology of the entire region, charting a story 7,000 years in the making. Drawing on decades of study in the Caribbean and South America, Saunders explores landmark archaeological sites, such as Caguana in Puerto Rico, with its ceremonial architecture and ballcourts, and plantation sites, such as Jamaica's Drax Hall. The author dives into the underwater archaeology of Spanish treasure galleons and untangles stories of cannibalism, zombies, and hallucinogenic snuffing rituals. He examines the impact of key Europeans, such as Christopher Columbus, and introduces readers to the native people, such as the Arawak, who welcomed them. Bringing the story up-to-date, Saunders chronicles the struggle of the indigenous people, from the Caribs of Dominica to the Taino of the Dominican Republic, trying to reclaim and revitalize their historical cultural identity.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Christian Dior, the legendary French fashion designer, caused a worldwide sensation in 1947, in a Paris still groping to recover from the devastations of wartime occupation. Reintroducing the flowing, ankle-length skirt, Dior gave women back their long-lost sense of freedom, femininity, and joie de vivre. Dior's collection with its pinched waist and generous folds of fabric, was dubbed the New Look by the press, especially the American fashion journalists. Dior was crowned The King of Fashion, and he immediately reestablished Paris as the center of the fashion world. For the next thirty years the House of Dior, with its subdued and refined pearl-gray, velvet covered walls and its gray carpeting, played host to aristocrats, stars of stage and film, and glitterati from around the world—the Duchess of Windsor, Olivia de Havilland, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, and Ingrid Bergman, to name a few. Dior's daily inspiration emanated from the world of the intellectual and artistic elite, in which he moved with such people as Erik Satie, Francis Poulenc, Henry Suguet, Jean Cocteau, and Raoul Dufy. With elegance, precision, and impeccable research, Marie-France Pochna recreates this one-of-akind world of glamour and luxury and situates Dior's fairy-tale career in the rich tapestry of Paris cultural life.

The spectacular, centuries-long success of the United States is based on its having determined, early on, to be a smart country, single-mindedly developing institutions and practices that enabled its native born citizens to maximize their economic and social potential, and welcoming opportunity-seeking foreigners to join them. Over the last four decades, however, the vaunted United States human capital machine has been breaking down, dimming the economic and social prospects of millions of Americans.If The Smart Society blueprint is followed, these trends can be reversed and the nation and its people can quickly regain their preeminence in the hyper-competitive and globalized world of the 21st century. This is a most topical issue today because the country''s current heated political disagreements are not just about the proper size of government, but about how the United States can reverse its apparent decline and restore its historic economic and social vigor—in other words, regain its place as the world’s “smartest” nation.

Product : Whispering In The Giant's Ear: A Frontline Chronicle From Bolivia's War On Globalization
Category : Books>Travel
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Long the obscure Tibet of South America, Bolivia emerged as a world flashpoint during the four years William Powers lived there as an aid worker. CNN and the New York Times have shown images of Aymara women in bowler hats standing down tanks; citizen protests have ousted multinationals and two pro-globalization presidents. In Whispering in the Giant''s Ear, Powers brings alive the recent struggles of the Bolivian people. When he arrives in the rainforest, he meets an extraordinary Chiquitano Indian named Salvador who is fighting the extinction of his people. At the same time, the clock ticks for three multinational energy companies forced to curb the global warming. Both goals depend upon the survival of a stretch of pristine jungle. But as Indians and oil giants join to launch the world''s largest Kyoto project - using forests to absorb dangerous planetary greenhouse gasses - Salvador''s life is threatened by loggers collaborating with a racist Bolivian oligarchy. The quest for a single rainforest is subsumed in a movement of national liberation. Whispering in the Giant''s Ear goes beneath the headlines, gracefully weaving memoir, travel, history, and reportage into an unforgettable chronicle of a poor little rich country attempting to engage the world without losing its soul.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Temple''s expertise was representing individuals who had chosen to place themselves in the path of history or who were victims of discrimination and injustice . . . These legal war stories will give readers a realistic view of what a civil rights lawyer faced in championing unpopular causes. - ''Publishers Weekly'' This volume comprises Ralph J. Temple''s memoirs of his life and his work on behalf of the poor and disadvantaged. He was born in England on October 18, 1932. Shortly before his father was called into the Royal British Army in 1940, Temple fled with his mother by boat from the Nazi attack on London and settled in Miami, Florida.After graduating from Harvard Law School in 1956, Temple worked for Thurgood Marshall at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, until being drafted into the United States Army. A critical formative experience was Temple''s August 1964 trip to St. Augustine, Florida, with the New York City Lawyers Constitutional Defense Fund; he worked with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and others to ensure compliance with the newly enacted 1964 Civil Rights Act.Moving to the American Civil Liberties Union, he soon found his calling as a civil rights and civil liberties attorney, rising to the position of Legal Director of the ACLU of the National Capital Area in Washington, DC, where he served from 1966?80. During his tenure there, he established himself in Washington as a lion ready to fight (and win) across a broad array of free speech issues. In 2008, the DC ACLU presented him with their annual Alan and Adrienne Barth Award for Exemplary Volunteer Service.Temple kept up his legal activism and civic organizing in Oregon (where he relocated in 1996) until the day he passed away on August 27, 2011. On September 18, 2011, he was recognized by the ACLU Foundation of Oregon for his brilliant and tireless work on behalf of civil liberties.

Inventing Socrates: The Religion of the Good Life (And Why We Had to Have It)

Product : Inventing Socrates: The Religion of the Good Life (And Why We Had to Have It)
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Inventing Socrates is a book about the consequences of knowledge and the coming of age. It is written in knowledge''s Western setting, making allegorical as well as literal use of the event known as the ''birth of philosophy'' - an event that began in ancient Greece in the 6th-century B.C., when a handful of thinkers first looked at the natural world through the critical eyes of fledgling science.Very little of concrete fact is known about this first philosophy and its protagonists. Only scant fragments of their writings have survived; and these are nearly always poetical and esoteric, some no more than a single line. They are freighted with meanings that might take one in two different directions at once; and this ambidexterity between ancient and modern has always been their beguiling feature. Altogether these thinkers are known as the Presocratics, because they pioneered the rational methods that Socrates would take to the question of the good life. If Socrates stands today as an icon of Western self-esteem, these pioneers are said to show the emergence of that poise from the fug of myth and religion. Apparently they prove the evolution of Western intelligence and the value of living today - in the secular maturity of its latest, greatest hour. But what if their continuing readability and tactility were actually to become the demonstration against that?This is not just, then, a book about the foundations of Western thought. It is a book about all that we invest in the ideas of ancient and modern. Left to right is the Western way of learning and growing, but, as Miles Hollingworth shows, the truths of the human condition are subterranean corridors running psychologically and eternally.

Rogue Rabbi: A Spiritual Quest-from Seminary To Ashram And Beyond

Product : Rogue Rabbi: A Spiritual Quest-from Seminary To Ashram And Beyond
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : The fascinating story of a man whose exploration in spiritual existence has not been limited to his life as a rabbi, this autobiography shares Jerry Steinberg’s experience down a path less traveled. Revealing an understanding of God that goes beyond the conventional, the memoir contributes to a different perception of the world today—an open-eyed and open-minded view that will resonate with readers of any religious or spiritual background. After traveling to India and investigating the Christian faith, Jerry went into medical school and narrowed his focus to psychotherapy—working with past-life regression, dreams, and psychogenic illness. He also became a rabbi; but Jerry never ceased to explore all aspects of faith, and he took up a specialization in Kabbalah, a discipline of Jewish mysticism. Jerry’s self-proclaimed focus has been to seek the essence of spirituality through the interface between rationalism and mysticism, and between religion and sexuality. The story of this real-life spiritual explorer will both inspire and instruct through his universally peaceful and accepting example.

Product : What Went Wrong?: The Inside Story of the GOP Debacle of 2012 . . . And How It Can Be Avoided Next Time
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies>Political Science
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : It was a race of certainty on both sides. Even on Election Day, Mitt Romney''s campaign advisers were convinced Romney would be elected president, while Barack Obama''s team was equally resolute: he would reclaim the White House. How was the Republican Party so misguided? Where did the party go wrong? Although the results were far from preordained, the carefully crafted strategy of the well-oiled and under-estimated Democratic Party machine left Romney''s team sitting in a heap of disastrous miscalculations and America with four more years of Obama at 1600 Pennsylvania. For conservatives nationwide, the outcome of the 2012 presidential election was a harsh wake-up call: superior policy can''t surpass superior movement in a campaign. Obama won the 2012 election largely due to his continuing charisma with a government-dependent constituency and support from the mainstream media; Romney lost largely because his advisers relied upon an uncritical reading of internal polls and neglected to implement a competitive ground game utilizing Internet technology. But it doesn''t end there: no future Republican presidential candidate will be able to win the White House unless the GOP can challenge the Democrats in digital media strategy, voter intelligence efforts, and the deployment of computer-backed Get Out the Vote field technologies. The problem lies not with the values of the Republican campaign-but with the execution. In What Went Wrong, New York Times bestselling author Jerome R. Corsi, Ph.D., provides both a post-mortem analysis of the Republican defeat in 2012 and a roadmap for the re-emergence of the Republican Party. More than an Obama vs. Romney rehash, What Went Wrong is a critical blueprint for a Republican presidential victory in 2016.

Laughing Cult: Poems

Product : Laughing Cult: Poems
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Inspired by the spirit and approach of Bertolt Brecht''s Manual of Piety, the poems of Laughing Cult often employ the structures of ballads, folksongs, and other traditional forms to create miniature sketches marked by romantic ambiguity, occultism, science fiction, and quirky angst. As cool in tone as a Lee Konitz solo and as lacking in affect as pop art, this first collection includes numerous poems that have appeared on the Exquisite Corpse website. To shape something aesthetically charged out of the spent elements and enervated thoughts of a slowly failing society: that''s the challenge Laughing Cult has set for itself. These are two-dimensional poems for a one-dimensional age.

Essays on Hinduism

Product : Essays on Hinduism
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : In this collection of essays the author discusses the basics of Hinduism. Outlining the message of the Bhagavad-Gita and the Upanisads, he argues that Hinduism is not a cult, nor a bunch of dogmas, but a religion of the highest order that speaks of an immanent and transcendental god. It also offers a philosophy of life that cuts across ethnic and geographic barriers between men. According to him, the essentials of Hindu religio-philosophic teaching are pervaded by the ideal of universalism and love for humanity. The author drives home the relevance of Hindu universalism to an age in which nations are armed for mutual annihilation. He maintains that successful application of the religio-philosophic teachings of Hindu seers will help humankind to overcome the worst crisis facing it in this nuclear age, and will lead to restructuring the world on the all-embracing principle of freedom and equity. The text is followed by the author''s lucid translation and commentary on Mundaka Upanisad.

Category : Books>Entertainment

Description : Founder of the Philadelphia Dance Company (PHILADANCO) and the Philadelphia School of Dance Arts, Joan Myers Brown''s personal and professional histories reflect both the hardships and the accomplishments of African Americans in the artistic and social developments through the twentieth century and into the new millennium. Dixon Gottschild deftly uses Brown''s career as the fulcrum to leverage an exploration of the connection between performance, society, and race—beginning with Brown''s predecessors in the 1920s—and a concert dance tradition that has had no previous voice to tell its story from the inside out. Augmented by interviews with a score of dance professionals, including Billy Wilson, Gene Hill Sagan, Rennie Harris, Milton Myers, Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, and Ronald K. Brown, Joan Myers Brown''s background and richly contoured biography are object lessons in survival—a true American narrative.

The essayists of The Disney Middle Ages explore Disney''s mediation and re-creation of a fairy-tale and fantasy past, not to lament its exploitation of the Middle Ages for corporate ends, but to examine how and why these medieval visions prove so readily adaptable to themed entertainments many centuries after their creation.

Women Intellectuals in Post-68 France: Petitions and Polemics

Product : Women Intellectuals in Post-68 France: Petitions and Polemics
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Cultural and historical accounts of the public intellectual and French feminism have been remiss in their failure to recognise an important group of major women intellectuals in France. In particular, studies of French feminism and public intellectuals have overlooked the contribution of notable figures such as Françoise Parturier, Gisèle Halimi and Elisabeth Badinter amongst many others which has necessarily had a detrimental effect on discourses about the gendered phenomenon of the public intellectual in France. By studying the work of these neglected intellectuals alongside those of more recognised women thinkers such as Assia Djebar, Marguerite Duras and Annie Ernaux, this book aims to provide a much broader picture of the activities, both political and literary, of female key public in the aftermath of May 1968. By exploring the relationship between their interventions in the public sphere and their creative work it throws new light on the reasons for their omission in standard theoretical and empirical work on the French intellectual. In so doing, this book offers a cultural and theoretical re-evaluation of the gendered phenomenon of the public intellectual in France, as such it is important reading to students and scholars of French Feminism and French public intellectuals more generally.

The Word On The Street: Rock Lyrics

Product : The Word On The Street: Rock Lyrics
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : A vibrant new collection of poems-that also double as rock songs-from the Pulitzer Prize-winning poetIn his new book of rock lyrics, Paul Muldoon goes back to the essential meaning of the term lyric-a short poem sung to the accompaniment of a musical instrument. These words are written for music most assuredly, with half an ear to Yeats''s ballad-singing porter drinkers and half to Cole Porter-and indeed, many of them double as rock songs, performed by Wayside Shrines, the Princeton-based music collective of which Muldoon is a member. Their themes are the classic themes of song: lost love, lost wars, Charlton Heston, barbed wire, pole dancers, cellulite, Hegel, elephants, Oedipus, more barbed wire, Buddy Holly, Jersey peaches, Julius Caesar, Trenton, cockatoos, and the Youngers (Bob and John and Jim and Cole). The Word on the Street is a lively addition to this Pulitzer Prize-winning poet''s masterful body of work. It demonstrates, once again, that, as Richard Eder has written in the pages of The New York Times Book Review, Paul Muldoon is a shape-shifting Proteus to readers who try to pin him down . . . Those who interrogate Muldoon''s poems find themselves changing shapes each time he does.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : A dark, gripping coming-of-age tale that explores violence, friendship, family, and what it means to be a manSummer, Palermo, early 1980s. The air hangs hot and heavy. The Mafia-ruled city is a powder keg ready to ignite. In a boxing gym, a fatherless nine-year-old boy climbs into the ring to face his first opponent.So begins On Earth as It Is in Heaven, a sweeping multigenerational saga that reaches back to the collapse of the Italian front in North Africa and forward to young Davidù''s quest to become Italy''s national boxing champion, a feat that has eluded the other men of his family.But Davide Enia, whose layered, lyrical, nonchronological novel caused a sensation when it was published in Italy in 2012, has crafted an epic that soars in miniature as well. The brutal struggles for dominance among Davidù''s all male circle of friends; his strict but devoted grandmother, whose literacy is a badge of honor; his charismatic and manipulative great-uncle, who will become his trainer-the vicious scenes and sometimes unsympathetic characters Enia sketches land hard and true.On Earth as It Is in Heaven is both firmly grounded in what Leonardo Sciascia liked to call Sicilitude - the language and mentality of that eternally perplexing island - and devastatingly universal. A meditation on physical violence, love and sex, friendship and betrayal, boxing and ambition, Enia''s novel is also a coming-of-age tale that speaks - sometimes crudely, but always honestly - about the joys and terrors of becoming a man.

Description : Mori notes, ''Where men think that they know everything, and boast of their superior wisdom, the presumption is that they have yet much to learn.'' . . . [T]oday''s readers, whether in the United States, in Japan, or elsewhere, who may think they already know so much about the subject, will find much of value in Life and Resources in America. -Akira Iriye, Harvard University, from the foreword Mori Arinori''s Life and Resources in America was written by the young, educated ex-samurai the Japanese government selected as its first diplomatic representative in the United States. Originally published in English in Washington, D.C., in 1871, this book sheds much light on the shape of an American society, government, and economy recovering from the Civil War. Like earlier philosopher-tourists such as Alexis de Tocqueville and Harriet Martineau, Mori understands the United States as a stage upon which an important experiment in democracy, pluralism, and liberalism is unfolding. Life and Resources in America is distinct for its view from the Reconstruction period and by a non-European observer. Historian John E. Van Sant has annotated and lightly edited this uniquely illuminating text, making it readily accessible to the contemporary audience it deserves.

Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : On the pages of this poignant volume are fresh verse translations of the biblical psalms by master wordsmith Calvin Seerveld. Voicing God''s Psalms contains thirty-seven psalms from the canonical book of Psalms and several psalmic passages from elsewhere in Holy Scripture (both Testaments) -- all strikingly translated by Seerveld from the original Hebrew and Greek languages into idiomatic American English. Seerveld has arranged his carefully crafted psalm translations into thematic clusters under nine progressive headings. He follows half of his translations with singable psalm versifications fashioned to various melodies. In an introduction and an afterword Seerveld sets the biblical psalms in historical context, highlights the rough and tender tenor of God''s psalms, and offers concrete suggestions for helping these psalms come alive in our private and public worship today. The accompanying audio CD features oral readings by Seerveld himself of many of the printed psalm translations, interspersed with select versification melodies skillfully played by solo recorder or saxophone. An extraordinary book-and-CD combination, Voicing God''s Psalms will help many worship leaders and music directors in preparing liturgies and will inspire many believers in their personal devotions.

Managing Madness in the Community: The Challenge of Contemporary Mental Health Care

Product : Managing Madness in the Community: The Challenge of Contemporary Mental Health Care
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : While mental illness and mental health care are increasingly recognized and accepted in today's society, awareness of the most severely mentally ill--as well as those who care for them--is still dominated by stereotypes. Managing Madness in the Community dispels the myth. Readers will see how treatment options often depend on the social status, race, and gender of both clients and carers; how ideas in the field of mental health care--conflicting priorities and approaches--actually affect what happens on the ground; and how, amid the competing demands of clients and families, government agencies, bureaucrats and advocates, the fragmented American mental health system really works--or doesn't. In the wake of movies like One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Shutter Island, most people picture the severely or chronically mentally ill being treated in cold, remote, and forbidding facilities. But the reality is very different. Today the majority of deeply troubled mental patients get treatment in nonprofit community organizations. And it is to two such organizations in the Midwest that this study looks for answers. Drawing upon a wealth of unique evidence--five months of ethnographic observations, 91 interviews with clients and workers, and a range of documents--Managing Madness in the Community lays bare the sometimes disturbing nature and effects of our overly complex and disconnected mental health system. Kerry Michael Dobransky examines the practical strategies organizations and their clients use to manage the often-conflicting demands of a host of constituencies, laws, and regulations. Bringing to light the challenges confronting patients and staff of the community-based institutions that bear the brunt of caring for the mentally ill, his book provides a useful broad framework that will help researchers and policymakers understand the key forces influencing the mental health services system today.

Beyond NIMBY: Hazardous Waste Siting in Canada and the United States

Product : Beyond NIMBY: Hazardous Waste Siting in Canada and the United States
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies>Political Science
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : The virtual inability to open new hazardous waste management facilities in Canada and the United States stems directly from a form of community opposition so common and vehement that it is commonly identified as a syndrome: Not In My Back Yard (or NIMBY). Whether such facilities are proposed by governmental agencies or by private waste management firms, communities are usually shocked to learn that they have been selected to host these facilities and take collective action to thwart them. Such actions have blocked many poorly planned facilities and stimulated greater interest in preventive, waste reduction strategies. They have also, however, thwarted the adoption of new waste management technologies and created serious geographic inequities in the distribution of waste management responsibility across the two nations. Beyond NIMBY examines positive alternatives to prevailing approaches to siting and the familiar NIMBY outcomes. In particular, it shows that certain siting strategies in Canadian provinces and American states have created successful siting agreements, broad public support, and comprehensive systems of waste management and prevention. These strategies include continuous public involvement in waste policy deliberations, a commitment to pursue siting only among communities that volunteer after extended democratic dialogue, and extensive packages of economic compensation and assurances of safe, long-term facility management. Equally important are guarantees that any new facility will be only part of a broader waste strategy for a particular province, state, or region and will not be allowed to become a magnet for wastes from areas that have not taken serious steps to address their own waste problems. The book concludes with the suggestion that these strategies can be applied to other NIMBY-blocked proposals, such as siting for prisons, drug and alcohol treatment centers, and nursing homes. Rabe''s book should contribute to the ongoing debate over hazardous waste facility siting. His lucid and convincing cases provide a meaningful starting point to push the level of debate beyond atheoretical anecdotes of success and failure.—Publius

Category : Books>Mystery and Suspense
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1

The Prefect,Pontius Pilateis in attendance. The populace is still buzzing over the brutal death of one of their Prophets,John, known familiarly as the Baptizer, and scandal is in the air.Pilate does wants no trouble and insists an independent investigation into the murder be made. Antipas will have none of Pilate''s men in the palace and Pilate doesn''t trust Antipas.Gamaliel,the chief rabbi and head of the Sanhedrin is coerced by Pilate to do the detective work.Gamaliel is a Talmudic scholar, not a sleuth and at first struggles. But as he learns more of the dead girl''s background and that of the other major players in the drama, particularlyMenahem, Antipas'' foster brother, he soon becomes eon over to the process and, Sherlockian-like, begins to fit the pieces together. Or, as his “WatsonLoukassays, strips the veils from his personalSalome.The girl turns out not to be the mere servant everyone assumed, in spite of his impatience with the pace and direction of the investigation Pilate is rewarded and the fascinating, little told but critically entwined, historiesof Julius Caesar, Cleopatra, Herod the Great, Anthony and Augustus Caesar,and the Battle of Actium suddenly seems more relevant to the Gospel narratives than anyone might have previously imagined.Meanwhile, the figure ofJesus, the rabbi from Nazareth, with his ragged band of enthusiasts and his habit of annoyingCaiaphas, the High Priest, moves enigmatically in the background.

A Fractured Landscape of Modernity: Culture and Conflict in the Isle of Purbeck

Product : A Fractured Landscape of Modernity: Culture and Conflict in the Isle of Purbeck
Category : Books>Art and Architecture
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : The recent rise of ''new nature writing'' has renewed the question of how a landscape can be written. This book intervenes in this debate by proposing innovative methodologies for writing place that recognize and make use of the contradictions, fractures and coincidences found in a modern landscape. In doing so, it develops original readings of modernist artists and writers who were associated with the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset, including Vanessa Bell, Paul Nash, Eric Benfield and Mary Butts. Their work is set alongside embodied practices of leisure and labour such as sea bathing, beachcombing, quarrying, tourism and scientific fieldwork, as well as the material and geological features of the environment with which such activities are allied. By showing the Isle of Purbeck to be a site where versions of modernity were actively generated and contested, the book contributes to a reassessment of the significance of rural locations for English modernism.

Institutional Change in Turkey: The Impact of European Union Reforms on Human Rights and Policing

Product : Institutional Change in Turkey: The Impact of European Union Reforms on Human Rights and Policing
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies>Political Science
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : This book explores the domestic reasons behind police reform in Turkey in the aftermath of the 1980 military coup. Although the role of the European Union on democratization and human rights should not be undermined, the EU driver only began to influence police reform after1999. Field research including interviews and survey research results reveal a consistent level of commitment among officers and their superiors to police reform. In contrast, interviews with civil society actors, legal experts, and political party deputies illuminate the complexity of implementing the EU''s democratic criteria because of the ideological, historical, and structural hurdles unique to Turkey.

The Intermedial Experience of Horror: Suspended Failures

Product : The Intermedial Experience of Horror: Suspended Failures
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : The Intermedial Experience of Horror: Suspended Failures is an exploration of the phenomenon of horror from an unusual angle. Whereas many past studies have concentrated either on establishing horror as a genre across the media or on observing horror as a catalogue of mental disturbances or collective cultural trauma, this book takes a different approach. Focusing on reading specific examples of literature from Romanticism to Modernism, the study brings together the phenomenon of horror with the topical concepts of experience and intermediality and highlights the complex relations they present. Horror is explored as an experience, one defined and brought into being by a break between the media of words and images. In literature, where images as such are frequently absent and the reader works from words alone, the experience of horror hinges on a suspended failure of the imagination.

Product : Britain and Germany Imagining the Future of Europe: National Identity, Mass Media and the Public Sphere
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Recounting the gripping tale of Europe''s quest for a constitution surveying events from Joschka Fischer''s ground-breaking Quo-Vadis speech at Berlin''s Humboldt University in 2000, to the failed referendums in France and the Netherlands fiver years later, this book addresses a relatively new aspect in EU Studies: the importance of public communication for bridging the legitimacy dilemmas of European integration. Through analysis of newspaper coverage on the debate over the future of Europe in Great Britain and Germany between 2000 and 2005, this book explores how national identities interact with, and are reproduced in, the discursive construction of the future of the EU and in doing so, it provides powerful insights into Europe''s emerging communicative space(s). The results of the three case studies suggest that the debate surrounding the future of Europe touche the core of a European construction, which exposes contradictory connotations and expectations while also highlighting that totally different ontological assumptions exist in Germany and the UK. The implications for the European Public Sphere'' are severe as while communication across borders does not require consensus, it presupposes a common understanding of the issues at stake.

Writing Postcommunism: Towards a Literature of the East European Ruins

Product : Writing Postcommunism: Towards a Literature of the East European Ruins
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Moving through the elegiac ruins of the Berlin Wall and the Yugoslav disintegration, Writing Postcommunism explores literary evocations of the pervasive disappointment and mourning that have marked the postcommunist twilight. With particular reference to the writings of Croatian émigré Dubravka Ugrešic, and those of Milan Kundera, Clemens Meyer, Ingo Schulze, Jáchym Topol, Christa Wolf, and others, it is argued that a significant body of postcommunist literature is underpinned and scarred by the semantic field of ruins: melancholia and nostalgia, presence and absence, pride and shame, and not least, remembering and forgetting. Taken together, the writings considered suggest a post-1989 ''literature of the ruins'', an amorphous, anti-formative framework that also dramatically illuminates the post-1989 ruins of east European literature itself – what remains when, as György Konrád put it, ''something is over''.

Television Audiences Across the World: Deconstructing the Ratings Machine

Product : Television Audiences Across the World: Deconstructing the Ratings Machine
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : This book is the first to explore the composition of television ratings in a cross-cultural, comparative manner. Using both communication history and the sociology of quantification, Television Audiences Across the World illuminates why the whole television industry, and television audiences themselves, refer to ratings as the main way to represent the television-watching public. It shows how a specific technology, the peoplemeter, has become the ''state of the art'' in very different cultural contexts, including major non-Western countries. It analyses how television audience measurement succeeds in homogenizing diverse ways of watching television among different populations, creating ''apparent nations'', and at times ignoring entire regions or parts of the population. The chapters in this volume discuss why television audience measurement has become the dominant model for the evaluation of popularity in the post-modern world, the true ''voice of the masses'', still powerful in supposedly fragmented societies.

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

"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," Nyong'o wrote.

"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.

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.

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.

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"

A post shared by Siena Wanlass (@swanhorns) on

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

A post shared by Naomi (@namglam) on

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

A post shared by Jess Mcdonough (@jesskatmcd) on

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.
