Let us forget with generosity those who cannot love us. "

Esta frase se la dedico a una amiga especial, ella sabrá quien es:
"Algún día en cualquier parte, en cualquier lugar indefectiblemente te encontrarás a ti mismo(a), y ésa, sólo ésa, puede ser la más feliz o la más amarga de tus horas"
Pablo Neruda



Margaret Thatcher was a staunch defender of Jewish causes and a supporter of Israel in her political career, unlike most Tory politicians before her.








And again I have seen an advanced copy of this movie and as an admirer of Margaret Thatcher, it projects her quite well. I loved this movie,  but more so was the performance of Meryl Streep as Thatcher...she was fantastic.

Barnes & Noble Booksellers

    small, speculative companies generally don't IPO.
    Instead, they stay private. And/or they do what Facebook just did, which was do a "private IPO" with Goldman Sachs.
    What's a private IPO?


    It's a mechanism in which Goldman's rich clients can invest in Facebook. But you can't.
    Seriously!
    One of the reasons Goldman just invested in Facebook was to create the ability for its clients to invest in Facebook--through a "special purpose vehicle". Specifically, Goldman has bought the right to buy $1.5 billion of Facebook stock for its clients via a single private investment entity. Goldman's clients who want to invest in Facebook will be given shares in the investment entity. And if the value of those shares rises, they'll cash in.
    Voila! The private Facebook IPO. Just for Goldman clients.








    Goldstein Musings:




                 The cello is the most evocatively Jewish instrument.

    When classical composers wanted to bring alive the music of the Jews, they often turned to the cello, the instrument that most approximates the range, tone, and texture of the male voice. After all, Jewish music was the voice of men—men went to shul, men prayed and women’s voices even outside the synagogue were often stifled.












    Italia! Oh Italia! Thou who hast the fatal gift of beauty.

    Lord Byron



    This just occured to me the other day: The fact that woman is the predominant character of Italian life, even if not the most conspicuous, can be read in many small signs.
    Almost as many popular songs are dedicated every year to La Mamma as to voluptuous hussies or romantic beauties. "Mamma mia" is the most common explanation. What other people call for their mother in time of stress or danger?






    If we are only reading things that interest us, we'll never find anything new. We'll never try something a little bit outside of our comfort zone, and we'll never grow as humans.

    Living inside a comfort zone is dangerous, and turns you into an uninteresting human being fed by other people’s opinions. Broaden the topics of things you read and learn how to have your own opinion.





    We’re obviously all at the mercy of forces we only dimly perceive and events over which we have no control, but it’s still unsettling to discover that there are people out there—human beings of whose existence you are totally oblivious—who have effectively toyed with your life.( politicians around the world)

    marilyn monroe photo

    Marilyn Monroe

    The greater reality of Monroe was her talent, otherwise she be just another sad case, or one of many starlets. The soul of Monroe is in performance: that combination of comic timing, vulnerability as well as strength, and her precise body language, a grammar yet to be duplicated.
    Genius cannot be duplicated, and the duplication of Monroe be it through the medium of writing or surely when done through performance is finally (no matter how well intentioned and thought out) a reduction of her power.

    It is Marilyn Monroe through a glass darkly, a dimming of her radiance. No bio can compare to a single film clip of Monroe.






    Phases of:





    Ornamented: -verb: Adorn; beautify


    Be·ing: -noun: Fulfillment of possibilities; essential completeness






    Arab people (Arabic: عربي‎, ʿarabi) or Arabs (العرب al-ʿarab) are a panethnicity of peoples of various ancestral origins, religious backgrounds and historic identities, whose members, on an individual basis, identify as such on one or more of linguistic, cultural, political, or genealogical grounds. Those self-identifying as Arab, however, rarely do so on their own. Most hold multiple identities, with a more localized prioritized ethnic identity — such as Egyptian, Lebanese, or Palestinian — in addition to further tribal, village and clan identities.





    I was asked to post this since I mentioned it in the last blog...it is number 1 in Italia and in Spain...

    Brasil is having something of a renaissance—and in handling preparation for both the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics, as well as its recent economic boom, its cities are bustling with new forms of culture and positivity.

    Despite the popular admonition “Dress British, think Yiddish,” these haberdashers helped put the America in the Anglo-American national style, and preppy dress is all the richer for their creativity and innovation.
    Not to belabor the point, but save for Brooks Brothers, essentially every Ivy League clothier was Jewish...and of course the king of them all , Ralph Lauren (Ralph Lifshitz) of Polo fame.




    The best dry shampoo out there:
    The key to making this product work is to not be light handed. The first time it didn’t work because I just hadn’t applied enough, it takes a hair amount to cut  through the oil.  Start by working in the product around the frame of your face, massaging it in with your fingertips and then working it back through the length of the hair.










    For all Barbara Palvin’s fans out there!




    Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has an abiding love for hotels. Get him going, and he will wax poetic about the elegance and beauty of the Hotel Georges V(Four Seasons) in Paris, which he owns. Now he can also boast about the newly renovated Savoy Hotel in London. Alwaleed and his wife Princess Ameerah Al-Taweel joined Britain’s Prince Charles to unveil the Savoy on Tuesday in London (see photo).






    Tom Cruise may have top billing in the latest “Mission Impossible” movie but the real star is the breathtaking Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the tallest skyscraper in the world.                   
    And I am going to rain in Dubai's parade as the Amir, Prince Al Waleed is building a tower(Kingdom Tower-Jeddah-KSA) that will dwarf Burj Khalifa...sorry!!!! it is a battle of the egos!!!.and I did ask him(The Amir) about the similarity to the Tower of Babel....and I got a smirk back(smiles)







    For Chanukah gift,  a Japanese friend sent me this pair of LV wooden glasses, not yet available to the public, and I will see how they look on me after the customary dark blue tint...I will post a pic of me wearing them on future a blog.









    December 31st is an important day in Japan, called Omisoka, when Japanese will make their final preparations for entering the new year. They'll bustle around town buying cleaning supplies to finish their oh-souji or "big cleaning" and will probably get their car washed, so they can enter the new year with everything fresh and new. New Year's Eve is the day when Japanese eat Japanese soba (buckwheat) noodles< /a>, which supposedly helps everyone enjoy long lives because the noodles are long, and December 31st is the busiest day for restaurants that serve noodles.

    And While on the subject of Japan this is amazing!!!




    Wieden+Kennedy Tokyo created a 30 second TV commercial for the launch of the new brand campaign ‘more with Google’ in Japan. It features the image search functions ‘sort by colors’ and ‘similar images’ projected as image mapping.






    ROBERT BRESSONFOR MANY FILM CRITICS, film historians, and filmmakers, Robert Bresson is the alpha and the omega of cinema. If you watch one of his movies is like seeing  film for the first time. Such claims continue to resonate with each generation that discovers Bresson.

















    Famous in France, Japan and the United States, the man that Vogue called “the Picasso of Pastry” revolutionized pastry-making with regard to taste and modernity. With “pleasure as his only guide”, Pierre Hermé has invented a totally original world of tastes, sensations and pleasures.



    The trouble with year-enders is that the sum of the parts does not necessarily reflect the whole, or vice versa.

    For those in the world that celebrate the New Year....this has always  been one of the most beautiful songs to listen to.
