Macaroons & Cupcakes Make Love Not War

French macarons are one of the sublime pleasures in life, and I have consumed many of the ones pictured above from Ladurée in Paris. Secretly, my favorite is pistachio.

For certain I will write more words about this WSJ story Mon Dieu! Will Newfound Popularity Spoil the Dainty Macaron?

Unlike WSJ, my love of macaroons — The French, including Ladurée, use macaroon— is so profound that I’ve made these decadent sweets a road to world peace.

After watching a long program on history of the Middle East last night — with a focus on Mesopotamia to modern-day Iraq — I’m further convinced that only women, cupcakes and macaroons will save the world.

Men have shredded human existence for thousands of years, as if people were cole slaw or worse yet — beef jerky. In the name of almighty rulers and God, too, there’s been no place for the humanizing influence of macaroons or cupcakes in power.

For the survival of the human spieces, macaroons, cupcakes — and perhaps baklava — must assume primary positions as diplomatic tools.

Brian Reed's 'Through the Heart of It all' Whispers Eternal Secrets

Updated on Sun, February 28, 2010 by Registered CommenterAnne

‘Through the Heart of it All’ by Brian Reed

Take a deeply controversial subject in America — nudity and public decency — and incorporate it into a complex art exhibit that strains engaged minds to understand the message, and then present it in an incoherent to read website. With any luck, your message will be lost and distorted, which is a shame when at rock bottom, you just may have something important to say. (I was there. See followup note.)

Bound Tightly By the Good Book & God's Will

This fashion editorial from Zink Magazine, via Fashion Gone Rogue, is appropriate for our ongoing learning about women and religion worldwide, and also the Founding Fathers of America and their views about religion. 

The latter is my new area of study and I posted about Thomas Jefferson last evening.

I’ve made every effort to use Biblical verses from the King James Bible, because it’s the one mandated by the Southern Baptists.  Just this morning Timothy Egan wrote in an Opinionator from the NYTimes that the Idaho missionaries have damaged legitimate adoption organizations in Haiti and elsewhere.

Readers have complimented me personally on my attempts to fairly and accurately present the facts of the Haiti case, with Laura Silsby and Clarisa Coulter remaining in jail. My commitment to fair reporting and commentary has not ended.

I confess to being a bit ‘rattled’ this morning, when I read that Idaho pastor Paul Thompson, who followed Silsby to Haiti, wrote just before the earthquake:

“War is declared! In God’s Holy Name let us arise and build!”

Researching the term, I came to this blog post Men of God, Arise!

“Too long have we been waiting for one another to begin! The time of waiting is past! The hour of God has struck! War is declared! In God’s Holy Name let us arise and build! ‘The God of Heaven, He will fight for us’, as we for Him. We will not build on the sand, but on the bedrock of the sayings of Christ, and the gates and minions of hell shall not prevail against us.

“Should such men as we fear? Before the world, aye, before the sleepy, lukewarm, faithless, namby-pamby Christian world, we will dare to trust our God, we will venture our all for Him, we will live and we will die for Him, and we will do it with His joy unspeakable singing aloud in our hearts. We will a thousand times sooner die trusting only our God, than live trusting in man.

“And when we come to this position the battle is already won, and the end of the glorious campaign in sight. We will have the real Holiness of God, not the sickly stuff of talk and dainty words and pretty thoughts; we will have a Masculine Holiness, one of daring faith and works for Jesus Christ”. Listen to the words of C.T. Studd (1860-1931) in a reading from “The Chocolate Soldier” on YouTube.

Within this context and nine months worth of writing about women in developing countries and religion, and also American women’s place in different religious orders, I believe it’s fair to share my own thoughts from the Bible, when I see these photos from Zink magazine.

I admit to being increasingly ‘shaken up’ the more I read on this topic.

The provocative fashion editorial was shot by Herring & Herring, styed by Mykel C. Smith. Models in ‘Bound’ include: Damaris Lewis, Julia Goncharenko, Anais Pouliot and Clara Settje.

Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt | L'Amour in Paris

Brat Pitt, Angelina Jolie and the whole family — including Angelina’s dad Jon Voight are in Paris, where she’s shooting ‘The Tourist’. Reading today’s Daily Mail’s commentary ‘so much for them breaking up’, I signed an unpleasant one, because the DM was aggressive in printing and promoting another Brad|Angie breakup in Jan 2010.

Lawsuits are flying this time. News of the World, the British tabloid that aggressively pushed the breakup story and is owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, splashed the end of the relatonship so far and wide that it ended up in the London Times.

Believing it, we were crushed.

Simply stated, Angelina and Brad are challenging the notion of family, marriage, children, monogamy — it’s clear that we have a very political, activist couple also intent on challenging traditional social mores. As involved as Angelina and Brad are in global issues, I imagine they feel strongly about a certain sense of hypocrisy in the world where some of us are endlessly obsessed with Aniston-Pitt-Jolie and others face death at sundown.

Lara Stone on Female Photographers

We posted the Lara Stone Interview photos and interview on Friday in Private Studio.

Mea culpa. I hadn’t read it until now.

In the politically correct fashion industry, few people speak out candidly. French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld does speak her mind, giving me reason to fawn incessantly over Roitfeld.

I love her lack of hypocrisy.

Lara Stone is also unusually candid, talking about her prior use of alcohol and ambivalence over being the fashion industry’s ‘fat girl’.

When people are honest about the person in the mirror, they sometimes becomes more honest in public. And when you’re driving your own Caddy, candor comes with the territory.

Let’s face facts, Lara Stone resides atop the pyramid.

Interviewing Lara Stone, Marc Jacob asks:

JACOBS: Is there anyone in the fashion world who you really look up to or particularly identify with?

STONE: I guess Carine Roitfeld. We’ve worked together a lot; she’s been a big supporter and helped me along with everything. Also, just the way she does her magazine-she’s not afraid to do things differently or scared to put certain things in her magazine, a bit of controversy. She’s a bit naughty. She likes sexy things.

JACOBS: She’s great; I agree with everything you said about her.

In the prior paragraph, Lara Stone weighs in on women photographers:

French Women Beat Americans 18 to 31 on Gender Equity

Rose Cordero, French Vogue Mar 2010If I were a woman of color, I would be thrilled that Rose Cordero headlines this month’s French Vogue magazine, only the second African American to grab the spotlight since Liya Kebede in 2002.

I was so impressed with the whole editorial, that the model’s skin color escapes me. For me Cordero is a grand testament to the Smart Sensuality woman. She is fierce in a much softer, sensual way but she’s no damsel.

Career Women Rules | Make Softspoken Demands

Maryna Linchuk & Tom Welling by Steven Meisel US Vogue May 2008Just now I posted research out of Rutgers confirming that although women were 54% of voters in the 2008 elections, they’ve leveled out at 24% of seats in state legislators. In the list of ways to put more women in office, the study authors recommended inviting more women to run for office. Women like to be asked.

After all these years, we women still want to be asked to the political party. Perhaps, I am too harsh, reading Can “Nice Girls” Negotiate? by Whitney Johnson for the Harvard Business Review.

The usual commentary is that women don’t ask for money, that we rarely seek a salary competitive with men’s or go about the research required to know the range of our salary expectations. In Salary, Gender and the Social Cost of Haggling, we refresh our minds with the group of graduate students at Carnegie Mellon University who lodged a complaint that women were working only as teaching assistants in PhD programs, while the men were all teaching courses.

“The dean said each of the guys had come to him and said, ‘I want to teach a course,’ and none of the women had done that,” she said. “The female students had expected someone to send around an e-mail saying, ‘Who wants to teach?’ ” The incident prompted Babcock to start systematically studying gender differences when it comes to asking for pay raises, resources or promotions. And what she found was that men and women are indeed often different when it comes to opening negotiations.

Like women aspiring to political office, the women PhD students expected to be offered a class to teach.
