Modesty and Sex Appeal

by Sandy Dumont

Modesty and Sex Appeal The incomparable French fashion designer Yves St. Laurent once remarked, “I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity – all I hope for in my clothes.”  St. Laurent was a master when it came to making women look good. At first glance, his quote seems contradictory, in that he likes women to have both modesty and sex appeal. Notice that he didn’t say he wanted them to “look sexy,” because sexy implies “cheesecake.” Cheesecake is for Hollywood. Sex appeal is entirely different. Read More

Community Supported Agriculture: Should You Be a Locavore?

by Ronald Strauss, M.D.

Community Supported Agriculture: Should You Be a Locavore? One of the hot issues in food shopping these days is locally grown food. According to the strict definition, a “locavore” is one who eats only food grown within a radius of 100 miles. That’s the so-called 100-mile diet: make sure that everything you eat is grown within that distance from your home. Proponents of this plan say that locally grown produce is not only tastier but also more nutritious. You will be supporting your local farmers, your local economy, and your community. By saving the cost of long-distance transport, you will save fossil fuel and reduce the carbon footprint of the food you eat—that is, the amount of greenhouse gases put in the air by producing, harvesting, processing, and transporting the food. How true is all this? The answers are not always clear. Read More

How to Have a Constructive Conflict

by Debbie Mandel, MA

How to Have a Constructive Conflict Some of us bolt out the door as soon as we sniff the onset of relationship strife. Others get caught in a loop of purposeless repetitive fighting. Conflict shakes up our sense of balance and belonging. After all, we are looking for smiles and applause, not criticism and confrontation. Most arguments between men and women occur because women want to talk and explore the issue from all angles and men just want to fix it quickly. Once you understand that the idea of just talking can be a frightening experience for a man, and that not being understood undermines a woman’s self-worth, the solution becomes simple: Blend your two styles.
