In the January 2020 issue of Town & Country I spotted a fascinating piece by Josh Duboff about New York’s famous Metropolitan Museum. He begins with this: “Harold Koda remembers the first time he stood in front of the Met, which would eventually become his workplace.”

But living her life is not exactly a walk in the park. Even though she’s the daughter of Sir Paul McCartney of Beatle’s fame, who is reportedly a billionaire, she’s had her share of speed bumps along the way. The 48-year-old British fashion designer who is married to Alasdhair Willis – the former publisher of Wallpaper and a creative guru himself, has four active children and a company that spans the globe. She’s got a lot on her plate, as they say.

People like me, who are born under the Aquarius sign are always looking for the next wondrous adventure. Or, said differently: Aquarians are born to update the current structure and change the rules if necessary. This is the only explanation I can give for my fascination with the future of space travel – even the idea of traveling to Mars – in the upcoming years.

I came across this intriguing piece in Elle magazine, January 2020 because the photo (a supine figure drifting along in a boat) caught my attention – as well as the headline, Much Ado About Nothing by Kate Carraway.

There are times when life throws you a curveball that’s so unbelievable you can barely believe it. This is what happened to a career politician by the name of Joseph Crowley in November 2018 when he was voted out of office. A 28-year-old female bartender named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – who received 57% of the vote – suddenly became the youngest woman to serve in the United States Congress.

This is first time I’ve focused intensely and in-depth on a male for Adea. However, I truly believe the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Ronan Farrow deserves this salute. In a nutshell, his article in The New Yorker was so sensational that it changed the course of history in America, and perhaps the world, by kicking off the incredible #MeToo movement.

On April 19th of this year, Musk turns 72-years-old and her life has never been better! CLICK HERE to read our first blog about this lovely lady.
Now, according to an article I read in Bazaar’s January 2020 edition, Musk is the oldest star ever to appear in a CoverGirl ad campaign. She looks 20 years younger than she is – in other words: absolutely terrific. Her incredible life story is now being told in a book titled “A Woman Makes a Plan” with startling photos from the family vault.

I recently came across an article in a magazine titled Resident that really intrigued me. It appeared in October 2019, was written by Marvin Scott and sported a provocative headline that said, “Dubai: Las Vegas on Steroids.” Who could resist a description like that? Or, as the author says, “There are no glittering lights to lure you in, but there is an electrifying vibrancy that beckons a FIRST-TIME VISITOR.

Every so often history repeats itself. That happened to me when I read a piece in the Weekend Financial Times that appeared in December of last year and was written by Lou Stoppard. He discusses the question of “Why do people still stand in line when shopping on Amazon and other sites has never been more instant and accessible?”

“AND NOW, WITH A SINGLE SOCIAL MEDIA POST, SHE IS ABLE TO REACH DOUBLE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO WATCH THE SUPER BOWL EVERY YEAR”
This statement was made by the Chief Financial Officer, Pierre Andre Terrise, of Coty – the parent company of CoverGirl and other beauty mainstays – in a conference call that stunned everyone.

Over time, I’d heard about Elizabeth Holmes and the Theranos debacle but I really didn’t pay attention until I read about a book that hit the world with great fanfare in May 2018. It was written by John Carreyrou, a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter at The Wall Street Journal.

I’ve never liked cheapskates. I once worked with a guy who – when we went out to lunch – would make sure he only paid for what he ordered. And when it came to figuring the tax he made sure the other person paid the extra penny. The result was that, instead of just “splitting the bill” there was a lot of bookkeeping and figuring going on. After awhile no one would go out with him.
