How to Win a Nobel Prize by Just Writing a Check for a Lot

Lifestyle
If you were not feted in Stockholm or Oslo last month, here’s your chance to still nab a prize.First off, truth in advertizing- In the title, I am using the terms “win” and “lot” as they are used in the auction world, i.e., “to win a lot” means to be the high bidder on an item in an auction.The prize medal in question will be auctioned tomorrow at RR Auction in Boston, and, as of this writing, it carries a high bid of $42,500.How much, then, is a Nobel Prize really worth?It might be reasonable to start with its intrinsic value. It weighs 205 grams, and the current price of a gram of gold is $40.07. That, though, is for 24 karat gold, and the medal was only cast in 23 karat gold. Accounting for the discrepancy, it has a scrap value, (and it pains me to even write that), of $7,872.09. That would be the current value of any of the medals struck prior to 1980, like the one being auctioned tomorrow. After that date, they were downgraded to an 18 karat electrum (a.k.a. “green gold”) core plated with 24 karat gold. These later models would be worth somewhat less, on the order of $6,250-7,000....

The New Frontier Of Japanese Sake: Drinking Vessels

Lifestyle
Ask a Japanese sake connoisseur how to drink sake. You would hear about the perfect temperature and food to serve it with … but probably not much about the serving vessels.Consumers would sip sake out of a traditional tiny white ceramic cup called “ochoko” with blue circles in the bottom (which they say helps to evaluate color and clarity of sake) or ochoko that is made of beautiful glass, or other earthenware. But not much beyond.On the other hand, wine glasses have been highly engineered these days, and companies like Riedel invented multiple glasses for specific grapes.Inspired by the wine glass industry, a Japanese pottery recently developed a new product line called “Ikkon #1 Ohako” double wall sake cups. Takeshi Matsunaga, the fourth generation of the 350-year old Matsunaga Pottery in Fukushima Prefecture, started a new brand Ikkon to launch the products. “With the close relationship between sake and sake cups in mind, we design cups that allow you to fully savor sake all the way down to the last drop as well as to enjoy new and fun ways of drinking sake,” he said....

5 Reasons To Spend Winter In California

Lifestyle
When a winter day means temperatures in the sixties with a slight chance of rain, California ranks high on the the list for holiday destinations. While much of the country battles winter storms, most Californians are able to enjoy holiday activities outdoors (now that the recent wildfires have been contained).

While donations are still widely accepted for the communities hit hardest and their efforts to rebuild, there are other ways you can support California, namely, visiting for the holidays.

Palm Angels Dope Connection With The Genuine Energy And Innovation Of Beijing,Shanghai And Tokyo

Lifestyle
What is different now however is that the streetwear design process is moving much faster. Considering, for example that some brands can have product turned around in a flash. The significance of data culture has also created an increased demand for product. The world seemingly has accurate data on the increased importance of style disruptors and the consumers searching for this type of product. We now expect a brand to back up their design with culture. It is also necessary for them to display market wide-visibility. For a brand today, it makes sense that social media decisions be made quickly and accurately. Luckily studying the market has matured too.One company that has changed the style process is Palm Angels. Displaying scenes of a new streetwear American culture with a fresh perspective, formerMoncler art director Francesco Ragazzi launched Palm Angels. His designs are upscale skate inspired apparel and accessories mixed with an Italian sartorial education and chill vibes much like the skateboarders themselves.

Why Magnum Wine Bottles Are Perfect For The Holidays

Lifestyle
A friend always used to say, “A magnum bottle of wine is the perfect size for two people if one of them isn’t drinking.” While that may be a bit of an exaggeration, it’s true that magnum bottles are excellent choices for group imbibing. As the holiday season is full of group dinners, parties, and get-togethers, it’s the perfect time to dive into the wonderful world of wine magnums.Though it seems like a leap to upgrade from the standard 750-milliliter bottle to a full magnum, it really isn’t. At 1.5 liters, a magnum is the equivalent of two standard wine bottles. Given that each standard bottle contains five glasses of wine, it isn’t extravagant to suggest a bottle for a table of four dinner guests – that only works out to two and a half glasses of wine per person. Up to 10 guests can get a healthy glass of wine from a magnum bottle....

Inside the Upscale Johannesburg Shopping Center That Holds The Key To The African Luxury Consumer

Lifestyle
When globally-acclaimed fashion brands decide to set up shop in Africa, it is typically Johannesburg’s Sandton City mall they look to. The department store located in the city’s affluent Sandton neighborhood has carved a niche for itself in the luxury retail space. Three years ago, Sandton City opened its “Diamond Walk” wing. The designated area inside the shopping center houses mono-brand stores by luxury brands including Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Prada, and Patek Philippe. The opening of an additional dozen high-end flagship stores is scheduled for late 2019. “We’re seeing double-digit year-over-year growth for luxury brands. The wealthy consumer isn’t affected by global economic recessions – they’re resilient to that,” says Sandton City General Manager Preston Gaddy. He further adds, “For the African tourist, this is the pinnacle of shopping on the continent. Our mall also attracts a lot of spenders from oil-rich West African countries such as Nigeria and Ghana. They can buy their wife a Louis Vuitton handbag whilst getting the latest Nike sneakers – all under one roof.” ...

'The Mandalorian' Boasts A Crazy Talented Cast

Lifestyle
When it was initially announced, The Mandalorian sounded almost like an afterthought, a Boba Fett spin-off without Boba Fett. Well, now that the long-rumored cast list has been officially confirmed by Lucasfilm, the series is looking outrageously promising. We’ve known for a while now that the list of directors working on this show was extraordinary: Dave Filoni, Rick Famuyiwa, Deborah Chow, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Taika Waititi, the man who made the funniest Marvel movie yet. Well, the cast list is equally prestigious. As suspected, Pedro Pascal (of Narcos and Game of Thrones fame) is indeed playing the lead, the titular Mandalorian. And Pascal will be joined by Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, Nick Nolte, and ..... Werner Herzog? ...

Books To Travel With For The Holidays

Lifestyle
'Tis the season to be reading. Whether you're on a plane heading somewhere exotic or at home, wishing you were, there's nothing like a book to keep you company. Books can make you excited about where you're going or they can take you somewhere else completely.As always, my bibliotherapist, Rachel Stevenson, has some great reading suggestions for this holiday season. If you need more, here are her recommendations for books to fuel your wanderlust.There are lots of movies about traveling during the holidays, like "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" or, much more romantic, "The Holiday." How about books?One of my favorite books is "Moonlight Over Paris" by Jennifer Robson. It’s part of her four-book series focusing on WWI, the Long Weekend, and WW II (some of my favorite time periods to read about). Out of the four, this one is my favorite, although it’s a close tie with "Somewhere in France." I love how Hemingway and Fitzgerald and others pop up in the City of Light and Love. It makes me want to spend Christmas there … just no art classes....

Nancy Pelosi Made The Subtlest Power Move, And The Internet Noticed

Lifestyle
People on Twitter can’t stop talking about Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her heated meeting with President Donald Trump at the White House on Tuesday.The House minority leader, along with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), met with Trump on camera to discuss border security and funding Trump’s long-promised border wall. In the meeting, much of which was captured on video, Pelosi challenged Trump and stood her ground when he suggested she “was in a situation where it’s not easy for her to talk right now.”Trump’s comment, seemingly a reference to Pelosi’s tough battle for the House speakership, drew a swift rebuke from the Democrat.“Please don’t characterize the strength that I bring to this meeting as the leader of the House Democrats, who just won a big victory,” she countered, per The New York Times....

A Tony-Winning Broadway Star Scores Big With Her 13th Show, The Prom

Lifestyle
Beth Leavel was a college student getting a social work degree at Meredith College in Raleigh, North Carolina when she took a field trip to New York City. She and her pals had just arrived on an overnight bus and checked into the Edison Hotel when they had to rush off to a matinee. “We were sleepy and had not eaten” recalls Leavel. “We sat in the last row of the theater. The person in front of me was eating a pastrami sandwich.”She remembers enjoying the show. “But I just really wanted some of that pastrami sandwich,” says Leavel. Later that day that night she saw Pearl Bailey in Hello, Dolly! and waited for her at the stage door. “By then I had been fed and was awake. Pearl Bailey was really magical and she signed my playbill,” says Leavel. On that same trip she also saw A Chorus Line. It was one of her many discoveries that revealed glimpses of a possible career....
