That was the case when Chanel was alive. And it’s still true now. But magic happens when Burt Tansky, the recently retired chief executive of Neiman Marcus, puts in a call on your behalf. All Burt had to do was make a phone call. The tour was capped off by a presentation by a company executive who told the students about how the brand is building on Chanel’s traditions and growing the business into rapidly growing markets such as China. Sneider’s group recently returned from a two week-long trip to the fashion capitals of Europe — Milan, Rome, Paris, and London — as part of a mini-course on luxury apparel. It may be a somewhat narrow segment of retail, but it’s a timely topic, especially since higher-end retailers have rebounded much quicker out of the recession than their mid-tier counterparts. And with business schools looking for more ways to provide a more globalized education, the subject lent itself well to international travel. And yes, in case you’re wondering, the students had to pay for the trip out of their own pockets.

And for as long as anyone can remember, Pete Ragusa has been pounding out a steady backbeat on the drums, the big, thumping heart of the Nighthawks’ music. Pete joined the Nighthawks in , two years after it was formed by harmonica ace and singer Mark Wenner. Thirty-five years Pete was in the band, which is why it’s a little hard to get your head around the news that he played his last gig as a Nighthawk last Saturday at Glen Echo’s Spanish Ballroom. There had been no announcement, no “Pete’s farewell gig!
He’d just been thinking about a change, talked with Wenner about it, and decided to amicably hang up his sticks. Well, his Nighthawk sticks.

Interns AU date rape column angers students American University students are demanding that the campus newspaper fire one of its columnists and issue an apology after publishing a column Monday that called date rape “an incoherent concept. Knepper wrote that a woman who attends a fraternity party, drinks more than five glasses of alcohol and follows a guy to his room is indicating that she is willing to have sex and should not “cry date rape” the next morning.
Knepper, who is openly gay, often writes on topics that infuriate students and hopes to someday be a political commentator. In an interview Monday he said that “real rape,” which occurs when a stranger “thrusts sex into a non-sexual situation,” is a heinous crime and rapists should be severely punished. Not surprisingly, the column has already received more than comments and several letters to the editor.
Early Monday morning an unknown person or persons collected hundreds of copies of the paper from around campus and piled them in front of the student newspaper office, under a sign reading: Editor in chief Jen Calantone said she decided to publish the column because it would “foster an interesting discussion. Editors are also in the process of organizing a Thursday night forum so students can ask questions and share their opinions.
Calantone also wrote a letter to readers , which was posted on the newspaper’s Web site Monday afternoon. By publishing this piece, we were not trying to display our tacit support of Knepper’s views. However, as journalists, we are not in the business of censorship. As an editor, I would not feel right to fire or censor a writer who has offended people, because I believe that he has raised questions that warrant discussion.
The Washington Post Should Tell You When Its Columnists Are Paid to Disinform You
This is followed, inevitably, by statistics from Baghdad’s version of the county morgue. But those figures just strike me as utterly meaningless as a measure of “violent death” in Baghdad or Iraq pre-war. There was plenty of violent death to go around in Saddam’s Iraq that was kept off the books, as we know now hat tip, Instapundit. Would it be so difficult for reporters, who are trying to make a legitimate point about street crime, to simply throw in the contextualizing phrase “street crime” when they are discussing this issue, rather then the totalizing phrase “violent death” which just erases all the pain and suffering that was caused by the state as if it never happened?

Since Kaganoff has brought up this slander again, I wanted to take the opportunity to respond. That these men offer an inapt comparison should be obvious—not just by the severity of the accusations against them, but by the sheer volume of credible evidence they faced.

Only a fool — or possibly a Frenchman — could conclude otherwise. It is an honest mistake, a well-intentioned mistake, a mistake for which no one is culpable, but the idea of creating a nation of European Jews in an area of Arab Muslims and some Christians has produced a century of warfare and terrorism of the sort we are seeing now”.

I know Israel’s imperfections, but I also exalt and admire its achievements.

Israel is, as I have often said, unfortunately located, gentrifying a pretty bad neighborhood.
