- Don't Ask An Economist For Stock-Picking AdviceOVER the last few weeks, as the stock market has reached new highs, my thoughts have turned to my 85-year-old mother. “O.K. Mr. Smarty-Pants,” she often asks me, “what stock should I buy now?” She first asked me this question when I was an undergraduate at Princeton, majoring in economics. She asked again when I was a graduate student at M.I.T., earning a Ph […]

Nothing like starting the week off with some racism-inspired earrings to decorate these lobes! First, it was plantation weddings, now it’s “slave earrings.” Apparently making a mockery of slavery is so chic these days that Vogue Italia decided to highlight it as the newest fashion craze: Jewelery has always flirted with circular shapes, especially for use in making earrings. The most classic models are the slave and creole styles in gold hoops. If the name brings to the mind the decorative traditions of the women of colour who were brought to the southern Unites States during the slave trade, the latest interpretation is pure freedom Colored stones, symbolic pendants and multiple spheres. And the evolution goes on.

R.I.P. Published this article about STEVE JOBS in Aug. 2011 :: — >10 Unusual Things “James” Didn’t Know About Steve Jobs
His father’s name is Abdulfattah Jandali. If you had to ask me what Steve Job’s father’s name was I never in one zillion years would’ve guessed that, and that Steve Jobs biologically was half Syrian Muslim. For some reason I thought he was Jewish. Maybe it’s because I wanted to be him so I projected my own background onto him. His parents were two graduate students who I guess weren’t sure if they were ready for a kid so put him up for adoption and then a few years later had another kid (see above). So I didn’t know he was adopted.

A Tennessee teacher marching to the beat of a different drummer now has to face the music after being caught in a bizarre sexual misadventure. Private music teacher Daniel Torroll was arrested last week after being caught performing a sex act on a doll within view of an elementary school. Cops say they found the 56-year-old naked under a bridge on school property in Spring Hill, Tenn. with a child-like doll that had holes cut in it. Torroll admitted to being in flagrante with the doll, but said he suffers from attention deficit disorder and cannot always control certain sexual impulses. “I happened to be there, but I didn’t know it was school property,” he told WATE-TV in Nashville. “I wouldn’t be there if I knew it was school property.” Torroll – who teaches private music lessons from home – insists his sexual predilections do not involve children. “[Police] came here and looked [through my home]. There was nothing here. There was no child porn. I have two kids myself,” he said. He was issued a citation and was ordered to stay off school property, cops said.

The LGBT audience of that Era embraced as an Outlet
During the 1950s, the paperback as well as the magazines, rocketed in popularity. With the lifting of paper shortages and the collapse of the pulp magazine distribution network, the paperback became the dominant format for Gay and Lesbian fiction publishing. There’s a wide selection of these classic paperbacks, in great shape, from this era, online. What is pulp fiction? Pulp fiction is the popular fiction published on cheap wood pulp paper between 1920 – 1955. The Special Collections Research Center recently acquired an important collection of 1960s and 1970s gay pulp fiction novels issued by local publisher Guild Press. Guild Press was a mail-order paperback book service founded in 1962 by former Georgetown University philosophy professor H. Lynn Womack that specialized in pulp fiction aimed at a gay male readership. These books can be found by searching in the ALADIN catalog. On the other hand, Lesbian Role Distinction in the 1950′s, Sexuality, Social Life, and Public Image are all compiled with a somewhat unique history. But, in lieu of ALL the Studies, Research, Advertising & Progress, Closeted LGBT Men & Women still are bursting at the seams in Closets that remain “Full to Capacity”. Oh well! Maybe One Day, many, many light-years from now, distinctions about Sexuality will not have to distinguished, discussed or taught, rather it’ll be “Extinguished” completely in order for People to be just who they are.
