To help you feel great about getting older, we’ve assembled nine of our favorite quotes about aging. Well, everyone else on the internet is talking about it, so who are we to deny the world our opinions?
See, when we implied that the use of our product will make you look poreless and taut like Julia Roberts, we meant only that it was going to make you want to look poreless and taut like Julia Roberts! Whether or not you think Photoshopping is responsible for eating disorders or plastic surgery abuse, the bottom line is, it shouldn’t be used in order to sell products claiming to provide the very effects that Photoshop is being used to achieve.
It seems to us that the people who have the most power to change this sort of thing are people like Julia Roberts. As usual gentlemen, you cut straight to the core of things and present the arguments cogently and clearly.
I want to know if the Maybelline product will give me a sillyputtypenis on the side of my cheek, just like Christy’s. I was wondering if I was the only one that made it look like the makeup was pulling away her cheek. That was on the back of the last Vanity Fair, and I had to read the tiny print to tell who the hell it was.
I used to live in Chicago and people would see her occasionally out and about without any makeup on.
And even if makeup did have an effect close to that –who wants to be parading around like Kim Kardashian, with a 2 inch cement layer on your skin? I noticed this kind of Photoshopping carried to excess earlier this year in a print ad campaign featuring Kate Winslet, in which Kate looked completely totally unreal. As much as I love makeup, my skincare is pretty basic and one of my staple products is vaseline.
My skin was softer and clearer than ever after a week! My pores have never been that small… It was great. I always get compliments on my skin, but I was lucky to inherit my mother’s English rose complexion.
For makeup removal, I smear it all over my face, then take a wash cloth hot as I can stand, but not scalding and place over my face.I guess it sort of steams the makeup off.
The FTC oversees truth in advertising. Anyway, all of those agencies are severely underfunded and understaffed and will probably be even more so when government gets through with its spending cuts. If youa€™ve ever driven in Italy, youa€™ve been a player in the game Stump the Foreign Driver. The monks who kept viticulture alive during the Dark Ages were much the same, pouring their abbey wine into ceramic flasks that were carried a few steps to the refectory table. This began to change when noble families started storing premium wine in glass bottles around 1600. Paper labels first emerged in the mid-1700s, initially used by champagne houses eager to distinguish themselves from their competitors; this required a means of identification that wouldna€™t fall off during transport. Today therea€™s plenty of regulation dictating what wine labels should saya€”alcohol level, importer, pregnancy warnings, etc.
Classico No, ita€™s not a recipe like a€?classic ragu sauce.a€™ Ita€™s a location, as in the original, historic zone where the wine was first produced and gained fame. DOCG wines tend to be more expensive because of the costlier practices stipulated by the rulebook, such as smaller yields, longer aging, and maturation in wood. But herea€™s a tip for bargain hunters: Every winery that makes a red-wine DOCG will also have a a€?lessera€™ wine meant to be drunk young. Until they make a GPS system for wine labels, learning these basic rules of the road should take you a long way.
ClassicoA No, ita€™s not a recipe like a€?classic ragu sauce.a€™ Ita€™s a location, as in the original, historic zone where the wine was first produced and gained fame. DOCGA Italya€™s wine classification system warrants an essay in itself, but here are the basics for buyers: The top level, denominazione di origine controllata e garantita or DOCG (denomination of controlled and guaranteed origin)a€”clearly marked by a neck banda€”must adhere to a stringent set of rules that dictate practices in the vineyard and cellar. Nonetheless, light floods down from overhead, emanating from circular openings that look for all the world like LED fixtures. Manellia€™s re-do went far beyond the gravity-based system now au courant among wineries that want to give fastidious kid-glove treatment to incoming grapes.
In addition, Manelli wanted to show people whata€™s possible, to make sustainable practices seem less idealistic and more here-and-now. But Salcheto goes beyond these Napa-esque gestures in one big way: The winery reads like an open book of Renewable Energy for Dummies.
Anyone visiting Salcheto will first be struck by an odd presence on the terrace: All around, the tops of light conveyers poke out like bubble-capped submarine periscopes.
A far more obvious feature is the vertical garden, a lush blanket of vegetation covering the winerya€™s exterior walls.
The list goes on: evaporative cooling towers, natural ventilation to cool the interior, recycled waste water. Wea€™re seeing the results now in the very drinkable 2012 Obvius Rosso di Montepulciano, the debut release of their new style of Rosso di Montepulciano.
Wine writer Patricia Thomson divides her time between New York City and Italy, where she runs wine tours through her company La Dolce Vita Wine Tours.
If there ever were a prize for Extreme Makeover among wineries, Salcheto would win that too.
Despite the big impression it makes, Salchetoa€™s sci-fi lighting system accounts for a relatively small piece of the pie, conserving some 23,000 kilowatt hours per year.

The Life of Ottoman Jews For 300 years following the expulsion, the prosperity and creativity of the Ottoman Jews rivalled that of the Golden Age of Spain.
Ottoman diplomacy was often carried out by Jews. Joseph Nasi, appointed the Duke of Naxos, was the former Portuguese Marrano Joao Miques.
Turkish Jews are legally represented, as they have been for many centuries, by the Hahambasi, the Chief Rabbi. A Community Calendar (Halila) is published by the Chief Rabbinate every year and distributed free of charge to all those who have paid their dues (Kisba) to the welfare bodies. Social clubs containing libraries, cultural and sports facilities, discotheques give young people the chance to meet.
Jewish communities in Anatolia flourished and continued to prosper through the Turkish conquest. Les Arts Turcs team's professional guides that speaks French, Italian, Portugues and Spanish, English makes special tours of Greek, Armenian and Jewish quarters of Istanbul.

While of course aging is often accompanied by negative health side effects, these anti-aging messages do not tell the whole story of what it is like to grow “old.” Aging is by accompanied maturity, wisdom, new opportunities -- beautiful things that are certainly not “anti" anything. Great Britain banned the use of two ads; a Lancome with Julia Roberts and a Maybelline with Christy Turlington. Oh, those French, with their croissants, and their ooh-la-la, and their apparent talent for spewing horseshit.
I’ve tried all kinds of things both high end and drug store and vaseline always works best.
I’ve never worn makeup regularly (just for a special occasion), never used high-end products.
Which is about as spendy as Vaseline, allowing me to splurge quite comfortably on the imported shea butter stuff for my hands. I lived in Holland last summer and when I watched TV at the gym, I loved that the makeup ads all had little disclaimers at the bottom. We all know it’s a fantasy, and who would think that anyone would actually looks like the airbrushed ads?
It goes like this: Youa€™re barreling along the autostrada at 110 km and suddenly the highway forks. Once they discovered that aging can enhance wine, bottles started evolving, going from bulbous to cylindrical, which allowed for stacking in storage.
Regular wineries followed suit, at first writing the vintage or place of origin by hand on a blank paper label.
Castles, landscapes, floral motifs, medallions, escutcheons, art nouveau flourishes, and all manner of typography tumbled forth onto the tiny paper canvases.
Nonetheless, sometimes the simplest things arena€™t cleara€”like whether the word in large typeface refers to the producer, the wine, or the cru. Therea€™s no regulation for font size, so producers are free to emphasize whatever they want. In Italy, these prestigious vineyards are often located on the top of a hill, where therea€™s the most sunlight and the best drainage. Ita€™s usually preceded by the grape variety and followed by the town: Vernaccia di San Gimignano, Morellino di Scansano, Fiano di Avellino.
So if you dona€™t happen to know that Canale is in Piedmont, get out your smart phone and google it. Rules vary by zone, but generally it means an additional year of aging and an extra point of alcohol. It often comes from younger vines or less ideal vineyard locations or is matured in stainless steel rather than costly oak. Ia€™m snapping photos like some tourist from the dark side of the moon, watching the negative shape of Michele Manelli flap its arms for my amusement. But this is sunlight, pure and simple, which has snaked its way down a€?light conveyorsa€?a€”tubes lined with reflective silver filma€”and, navigating around two right angles, entered the cellar with bravura, 98 percent of its luminosity intact.
Corralling an assortment of renewable energy sources a€” solar, geothermal, biomass, CO2, evaporation, you name it a€” Salcheto is Italya€™s first winery to be completely independent of the regiona€™s electrical network. Since the retooled winery opened in 2011, hea€™s flung open its doors with an enthusiasm thata€™s rare in Italya€™s appointment-only winery world. Here the abstract becomes tangible as concepts like photovoltaics and adiabatic thermodynamics are seen in action.
Ita€™s an amusing introduction to Salchetoa€™s lighting system, visually its most space-age element.
Topping the power list is biomass heating, which accounts for 29% of their energy supply (182,000 kWh). These photovoltaic cells can generate 20 kilowatts per houra€”energy that can be used, stored in batteries, or dumped into the electrical grid for future drawback. Five feet under the vineyards and parking lot, a circuit of geothermal water pipes snakes for 1.5 miles.
The new fermentation procedure is delicate (wouldna€™t you rather be pushed around by gas bubbles then metal blades?), so it reduces bitter tannins from broken skins. With jewel-like ruby reflections and bright cherry flavors, ita€™s as fruity, floral, and charming as a young gamay. It started life in 1984 as a traditional farm, with sheep and mixed crops, including one historic sangiovese vineyard (now named Salco after its bordering willowsa€”salco in ancient Tuscan).
Once a focal point of the social and cultural lives of Greeks, Armenians and Jews, the Fener and Balat districts are presently inhabited by a mostly Muslim population that immigrated from other cities and rural areas. In the 17th century, Fener became the residence of upper classes and the bourgeoisie with its hewn stone buildings and richly ornamented house facades. Balat's winding streets provided a meeting ground for navigators, seafarers, street vendors and porters. In fact, from the early 15th century on, the Ottomans actively encouraged Jewish immigration. Another Portuguese Marrano, Alvaro Mendes, was named Duke of Mytylene in return of his diplomatic services to the Sultan.Salamon ben Nathan Eskenazi arranged the first diplomatic ties with the British Empire. Indeed, Turkey could serve as a model to be emulated by any nation which finds refugees from any of the four corners of the world standing at its doors.In 1992, Turkish Jewry celebrated not only the anniversary of this gracious welcome, but also the remarkable spirit of tolerance and acceptance which has characterized the whole Jewish experience in Turkey. When the Ottomans captured Bursa in 1326 and made it their capital, they found a Jewish community oppressed under Byzantine rule.
In the 17th century, Fener became the residence of upper classes and the bourgeoisie with its hewn stone buildings and richly ornamented house facades.
Balat's winding streets provided a meeting ground for navigators, seafarers, street vendors and porters. We especially like how they admit that they reduced the dark shadows in the ad that sells a product claiming it reduces dark circles but still maintain that the picture is accurate.
Even if Julia doesn’t give a shit about the self-image of other women or the dishonesty of advertising, she HAS to be mortified that the entire internet is talking about how old she normally looks in comparison to these ridiculous ads. Which from two years’ experience I can say most certainly does generate a 90% improvement in the texture and appearance of my hands.
But how can anyone really see the benefit (or lack thereof) of that mascara if the model is wearing falsies? Theya€™re not like American wanderers who transfer jobs at the drop of a hat and vacation in different spots every year, driving hundreds of miles without anxiety thanks to idiot-proof signage like I-75 South. But glass bottles were not sufficiently elegant for lordly dining; wine came to the table in crystal decanters. With the invention of lithography in 1798, a whole new chapter opened up, and modern labels were born. Here again it pays to get acquainted with some regional or dialect words, in this case indicating a€?top of a hilla€?: Bricco, sorA®, and poggio are the most common.
In practice, there are plenty of ho-hum DOCG bottles out there, and an equal number of stellar IGTs (indicazione geographica tipicaa€”the lesser category that most pricey Super Tuscans fall into). So Barolo producers will also make a plain nebbiolo, Brunello di Montalcino wineries a simpler sangiovese, and Amarone estates a straightforward Valpolicella. Wea€™re 70 feet underground in the cellars of Salcheto, Manellia€™s organic winery in the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano region, and therea€™s nary an electrical light to be found, other than the faintly glowing exit sign mandated by law.
Whata€™s more, through energy-conservation practices, it uses 54% less energy than a comparably sized conventional winery.
The building blocks were natural resources that every winery has in spades (vine cuttings, carbon dioxide from fermentation) coupled with ones shared by all (sun, earth, water). This impression hits home on the lower floors, where eight of these shiny tubes converge in a circular huddle and seem like a Starship transporter waiting to beam you to the next galaxy.
The earth cools down the water to temperatures that are sufficient for air-conditioning and for cooling the stainless steel fermentation tanks.
Made of feathery ferns, russet ivy, and all manner of shapely scrub and ornamental grass, it looks nice, too. Here one finds water glasses cut from recycled wine bottles, placemats made from old mattresses, wooden tables carved from oaks harvested on nearby Mt. But in the beginning, a€?we didna€™t know if it was possible to make a wine as good as it was before,a€? Manelli confesses.
Better yet, lab analysis shows that extractions are 5 to 10 percent greater than with mechanical pump-over. It is uncertain as to when the aqueduct’s construction began, but it is mentioned in certain sources that it was completed eithe during the reign of Emperor Valens (364–378CE) or of Hadrianus (117–138CE) whose names it bears.
During the Ottoman period, an important segment of Greeks who lived in Fener, who were well-educated and fluent in several languages, held high government positions as interpreters or diplomats. Following the earthquake of 1894 and a series of fires that affected not only the neighbourhood but whole city of Istanbul, the social structure of Balat underwent significant changes: The wealthiest section of the inhabitants left the district and moved to Galata, which is the current location of the Jewish institutions including the Chief Rabbinate and major synagogues. A letter sent by Rabbi Yitzhak Sarfati (from Edirne) to Jewish communities in Europe in the first part of the century"invited his co-religionists to leave the torments they were enduring in Christiandom and to seek safety and prosperity in Turkey". (3)When Mehmet II "the Conqueror" took Constantinople in 1453, he encountered an oppressed Romaniot (Byzantine) Jewish community which welcomed him with enthusiasm. In 1493, only one year after their expulsion from Spain, David & Samuel ibn Nahmias established the first Hebrew printing press in Istanbul.
Fifty Lay Counsellors look after the secular affairs of the Community and an Executive Committee of fourteen runs the daily matters. Both cities have homes for the aged (Moshav Zekinim) and several welfare associations to assist the poor, the sick, the needy children and orphans. The events being planned - symposiums, conferences, concerts, exhibitions, films and books, restoration of ancient Synagogues etc - commemorated the longevity and prosperity of the Jewish community.

For all over body, after a shower, dry off and apply all over, just make sure to wipe up whatever the body doesn’t absorb before dressing. No, Italians stick close to mamma their whole lives and return to the same beach every August, giving it no more thought than a migratory bird.
So a Tuscan consumer doesna€™t need a label to tell him that Santa€™ Antimo is in Tuscany, or a Piemontese that the Colline Novaresi are north of Turin. However, wineries tend to have their Reserves spend that extra year in oaka€”often in new barrique.
Ita€™s also the first to have established a European Carbon Footprint for the production of a bottle of wine, tracking all direct and indirect emissions of CO2 according to the certified worldwide standard ISO 14064. These seem no different from the fagots seen in 17th century Dutch genre paintings or imagined at Cinderellaa€™s hearth.
This works in concert with the adiabatic cooling systema€”a fancy word from thermodynamics that applies to the irrigation of terrace and roof during the hot months.
Amiata, a funky candelabra made from colorful electrical cords threaded through an old meat grinder. This habitually offers great concentration and finesse, with earthy, balsamic notes underlying a plush black-fruit core.
Working with LASI, a small manufacturer in Venice, they came up with a prototype fermenter that uses no electricity whatsoever.
In 1994, Manelli joined as a partner, just when they were starting to expand vineyard holdings and get more serious about winemaking. During the 18th century, the majority of new constructions were made of stone or wood; and aristocratic Greek families started to build villas around the Patriarchate. The emigration followed and one fourth of the population of Balat left for Israel after its establishment. In 1537 the Jews expelled from Apulia (Italy) after the city fell under Papal control, in 1542 those expelled from Bohemia by King Ferdinand found a safe haven in the Ottoman Empire.
In the early 19th century, Abraham de Camondo established a modern school, "La Escola", causing a serious conflict between conservative and secular rabbis which was only settled by the intervention of Sultan Abdulaziz in 1864. Representatives of Jewish foundations and institutions meet four times a year as a so-called ??think tank?? Some of them are very old, especially Ahrida Synagogue in the Balat area, which dates from middle15th century.
As a whole, the celebration aimed to demonstrate the richness and security of life Jews have found in the Ottoman Empire and the Turkish Republic over seven centuries, and showed that indeed it is not impossible for people of different creeds to live together peacefully under one flag.,A History Predating 1492 The history of the Jews in Anatolia started many centuries before the migration of Sephardic Jews.
Sultan Orhan gave them permission to build the Etz ha-Hayyim (Tree of Life) synagogue which remained in service until nineteen forties.Early in the 14th century, when the Ottomans had established their capital at Edirne, Jews from Europe, including Karaites, migrated there. During the 18th century, the majority of new constructions were made of stone or wood; and aristocratic Greek families started to build villas around the Patriarchate. The emigration followed and one fourth of the population of Balat left for Israel after its establishment.
If you dona€™t happen to know that your destination lies towards one or the other, you lose. A plaque on a chain identifying the winea€™s provenance would be hung around the decanter's neck. These are inherited from times past, when peasants would give names to hills, patches of woods, parcels of landa€”their verbal maps, in essence. So the question of whether youa€™ll prefer a Reserva over the winerya€™s regular wine is a matter of taste. And for consumers, it provides a QR Code on every bottle, linking you to a Carbon Footprint Calculator where you can check the extra CO2 emitted to get that bottle to your local wine shop, as well as compensatory actions you can take to offset those emissions, such as walking three miles instead of driving or choosing a local fish dish for dinner rather than imported meat. More biomass comes from woodland-floor detritus thata€™s made into pellets (46,000 kWh), which burn in a little Hansel-and-Gretel oven.
The suna€™s energy is benignly hijacked, as it were, used to vaporize the water rather than to heat the structure underneath. The 15th and 16th century Haskoy and Kuzguncuk cemeteries in Istanbul are still in use today.,??The Museum of Turkish Jews?? Over time, these became elaborate artworks, crafted from silver, mother of pearl, ivory, and porcelain. For consumers, the easiest trick to figuring out the producer is to look on the back label.
A cru is generally the winerya€™s top wine, the one that offers the most distinctive personality and sense of place.
It depends on your feelings about oak and whether you go for the vanilla, mocha, spice, or cedar flavors that barrique often lends to wine.
If therea€™s one whose Barolo you swoon over, chances are youa€™ll also like their more affordable Nebbiolo Langhe. These feats and its leadership through the Salcheto Carbon Free Working Group have earned it a special award from Gambero Rosso for 2014 Green Winery of the Year. So ita€™s in Salchetoa€™s younger winesa€”particularly its brand new Obvius Rosso di Montepulcianoa€”where change is afoot.
Using values to collect and manipulate the gas, the dual-level, gravity-based tank can perform either of the two methods typically used for wetting the floating cap of grape skins. The Pope had no other alternative than to release them, the Ottoman Empire being the "Super Power" of those days.
As a result, leadership of the community began to shift away from the religious figure to secular forces.,,World War I brought to an end the glory of the Ottoman Empire. In the fine print, youa€™ll see Imbottigliato alla€™ origine daa€¦ or a€?estate bottled by [name],a€? and there you have it. Youa€™ll pay more, but youa€™re getting a unique, terroir-based wine, not a cookie-cutter beverage.
Therea€™s pump-over, during which the closed tank compresses the CO2 as it builds up, then a valve is opened and an effervescent fizz of gas ripples upward through the juice, gently wetting the skins. For the equivalent of punch-down, excess gas is collected in the fermentera€™s lower chamber; on demand, a large gas bubble is released into the upper chamber, generating a juice wave that breaks the cap.
Later joined by two new partners, Ron Prashker and Luca De Feo, they began a wholesale makeover.
In 1926, on the eve of Turkey's adoption of the Swiss Civil Code, the Jewish Community renounced its minority status on personal rights.During the tragic days of World War II, Turkey managed to maintain its neutrality. Additionally, the Community maintains in Istanbul a school complex including elementary and secondary schools for around 700 students.
Whata€™s more, by injecting a calculated amount of outside air, the process can include some micro-oxygenation. As early as 1933 Ataturk invited numbers of prominent German Jewish professors to flee Nazi Germany and settle in Turkey. Turkish is the language of instruction, and Hebrew is taught 3 to 5 hours a week.,While younger Jews speak Turkish as their native language, the over-70-years-old generation is more at home speaking in French or Judeo-Spanish (Ladino). A bronze column found in Ankara confirms the rights the Emperor Augustus accorded the Jews of Asia Minor. This not only softens the wine; it feeds the yeast a precision diet, which in turn prevents stuck fermentation when sugar levels are higha€”even with finicky native yeast. Before and during the war years, these scholars contributed a great deal to the development of the Turkish university system. It must past inspection at the laboratory and the tasting panel, showing that it fits the mold. During World War II Turkey served as a safe passage for many Jews fleeing the horrors of the Nazism. Now one newspaper survives: SALOM (Shalom), a fourteen to sixteen pages weekly in Turkish with one page in Judeo-Spanish.
While the Jewish communities of Greece were wiped out almost completely by Hitler, the Turkish Jews remained secure.
Mr. Salahattin Ulkumen, Consul General at Rhodes in 1943-1944, was recognized by the Yad Vashem as a Righteous Gentile "Hassid Umot ha'Olam" in June 1990.
The vast majority live in Istanbul, with a community of about 2.500 in Izmir and other smaller groups located in Adana, Ankara, Antakya, Bursa, Canakkale, Kirklareli etc.
There are about 100 Karaites, an independent group who does not accept the authority of the Chief Rabbi.
