For adolescents blessed with willowy good looks, the fashion world offers the prospect of glamour, celebrity, and wealth. But this, for many, is what the beginning of a modeling career can actually look like: On her first test shoot as a 15-year-old, Dasha Alexander said, a photographer held a camera in one hand and digitally penetrated her with his other — a move, he explained, that would make the pictures more “raw” and “sensual.”When Coco Rocha refused to get naked on set as a 16-year-old, she said, the photographer replaced her with a girl who was younger and more obedient. Months later, a famous photographer simulated an orgasm as he took Rocha’s picture.By the time Lenka Chubuklieva was 17, she said, an agent had repeatedly groped her, a photographer had thrown her on a bed and kissed her, and another photographer had masturbated in front of her and threatened to ruin her family in Ukraine if she told anyone.“If people really understood … [Read more...] about The fashion world promises glamour and wealth. Instead, many find harassment and assault.

Uncovering approachable routes for the everyday climber in South Patagonia Author: Andrew Bascue Publish date: Feb 23, 2016 This story originally appeared in the November 2014 issue of our print edition. The wind was a phantom, raking across the Central Tower and curling into the grooves of the heavily textured orange granite, haunting every move and chilling us to the bone. It ripped back on itself, building speed through the gap between the North and Central towers. As the sun began to rise, rays etched an outline of the Central Tower on the enormous east face of Cerro Escudo far across the valley. I could imagine my position way down on the edge of the shadow. Little hairs on my neck stood on end as I contemplated the vertical distance to the summit. I belayed André Labarca up the third pitch of the Central Tower’s über-classic Bonington-Whillans (V 5.10, A1, 800m), wondering if we could climb 15 more pitches in this wind and survive the trip back … [Read more...] about Feature: Climbing Torres del Paine’s Secret Moderates
ARRIVING at night on the Mayan Riviera, the only clue to my stunning view is the sound of waves crashing against the shore. Over breakfast we are rewarded with the perfect panorama — clean, white Mexican sands lapped by the frothy waves of the Caribbean sea, framed by rocky coves. While it would be easy to simply stretch out on those pale sands and sizzle in the sun for a week — pausing only to sip a tequila or two — Tulum can deliver so much more. It is a lively town but not on the scale of some of Mexico’s wilder spots such as Cancun, which is known for the hedonistic American Spring Break parties. While Tulum is full of tequila bars and live music for the evenings, it retains a sleepy beach-town feeling, and its nightlife centres more around drinking cocktails and taking in the views. There’s so much more to Mexico than just those dreaded tequila hangovers. To shake off the jet lag, we headed to Caleta Tankah, a beautiful, long stretch of beach for the … [Read more...] about Breath-taking Tulum is the jewel in the crown on Mexico’s Cancun coastline which boasts more than tequila shots and nightlife
Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune Published 4:11 PM EST Dec 14, 2018 Alfonso Cuaron’s new film, “Roma,” gives you so much to see in each new vignette, in every individual composition, in fact, that a second viewing becomes a pleasurable necessity rather than a filmgoing luxury. Great, you think. This time of year, I barely have time to see a movie once let alone twice. I’ll just plop this one in my Netflix queue. (“Roma” streams on Netflix starting Friday.) The counter-argument to that lament is pretty simple: “Roma” rewards your time, beautifully. It moves with implacable assurance, at times nearly losing its characters inside writer-director-cinematographer Cuaron’s boggling, fastidiously packed wide-screen frames, photographed digitally in 65-millimeter black and white. Time will reveal whether it’s a masterwork with qualifying asterisks or a masterwork, period. This much is true: “Roma” casts a spell and … [Read more...] about In spellbinding ‘Roma,’ a director recalls his childhood
Visit The Boston Globe Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Comment on this Scroll to top of page By Adam Ried November 30, 2018 Nut oils can contribute rich, luxurious undertones to food — they add a special touch that really elevates a dish. Oils such as walnut, hazelnut, pistachio, almond, and sesame are a familiar sight on supermarket shelves (near the olive oil), but some people may be unsure about how to use them. More often than not, nut oil is used to finish a dish, as you might drizzle extra-virgin olive oil over a serving of pasta for an extra punch of flavor, sheen, and silky texture. I consider walnut oil, which these recipes feature, the gateway nut oil because it is generally the most familiar and least expensive of its kind. Treat yourself to a bottle and bring an extra level of nuttiness to the holidays. Double Walnut Green Beans With Dill and Chives Makes about 8 cups Snip dill (rather than chopping it) to create small pieces that show the … [Read more...] about Recipes: Nutty for nut oils
