Fash Flood

GLOBAL FASH Spring and fall, spring and fall. As it hardly seems possible that the majority of fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear fashion has passed with Paris Fashion Week closing this week, a few notable fashion events remain. Los Angeles’ ever-improving Fashion Week is set to begin March 15 and fashion’s wild card, Tokyo Fashion Week, is opening March 18. As Milan’s Fashion Week came to a close, John Galliano, head of French fashion house Dior was suspended from his position pending investigation of an incident that occurred on February 25. Indeed, the fashion world was besieged by allegations against Galliano including anti-Semitic remarks and assault. NATIONAL FASH Buy your plane tickets now. This year’s must-see fashion exhibit, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty

Cosmic Forecast, March 3-9

Happy New Moon in Pisces. One more month of this season of introspection and survival. Still plenty of room/time to dream. Use it. Somewhere, somehow, some kind of war is about to raise its ugly, purple head. One month from now, on April 3rd, the Sun, the Moon, Mars (the planet of war), Jupiter (Bigness), the planet Uranus (the planet of the unexpected) and a retrograding Mercury (to help confuse the issues) are all in Aries — and all in opposition to Saturn in the sign of harmony, Libra. Meanwhile, back at the farm … peace and love shall conquer all. There are no mistakes… MojoPlanetPower.com PISCES (2.20-3.20) Now, you can start — in your mind. You’ve got…

Urban Meyer and Jim Delany spell big things for B’nai B’rith

* It’s still early in 2011 but I’m ready to call the 57th Annual B’nai B’rith Charity Sports Banquet the biggest non-game sporting event of the year. Sure there’s the first College World Series downtown and hopefully some good things still to come from UNO hockey, but as far as speakers go the B’nai B’rith organizers know what gets this city moving — college football. Big 10 commissioner Jim Delany and former Florida coach Urban Meyer will serve as co-headliners. By the time May rolls around there may not be a bigger man of the moment in the state than Delany. As the guy who plucked Nebraska from the expanding power of Texas and the assumed collapse of the Big…

NU men feeling bubble-licious

*Beat Texas. A rallying cry for most of 2010, the words became pathetic after a disastrous Texas football team beat what we thought was a very good Nebraska squad in Lincoln in October. If you knew where to look, the No Frills on Saddle Creek for instance, you could still find some of those “Beat Texas” T-shirts available for around $2.99, a three-dollar reminder of failure and farewell to the Big 12 Conference. How many Huskers fans would’ve thought they’d come in handy during basketball season? After beating No. 3 Texas 70-67 on Saturday — easily the biggest win of Doc Sadler’s career in Lincoln — Nebraska is suddenly a part of NCAA Tournament talk. As of Sunday, RealTimeRPI.com had…

Mortal Combat: If You Eat Food, Read This

You’re being held hostage and likely don’t know it. Two entities are locked in mortal combat with everyone on the planet caught in the middle. On one side is the overwhelming power and bloated might of Corporate Greed. On the other side are those who could literally be known as Food Freedom Fighters. The battlefield is your kitchen table or, more accurately, your body. Thomas Jefferson once said: “If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” What you put in your body, what you nourish yourself with, is being increasingly scrutinized and regulated by…

Cosmic Forecast for Feb. 24-March 2

King Neptune welcomes you into the Ocean of Devotion that is Pisces. Neptune rules the subconscious, mysticism, fantasy, music and dreams; the number “9,” the color purple and that which cannot be explained — anything indefinable. (How about ‘dem definable abs, too?). I explain the mystery of Neptune's trident spear in/on my tune, “PISCES,” from the “ZODIAC,” my life long mystical, musical survey through the 12 Astronomical signs of experience. I'm releasing one sign at a time for 99 cents at MOJOPOPlanetPower.com/Pisces. It (Inshallah) will/shall/should be ready by the next Full Moon, March 19. So far you can order a very beautiful tune for the sign of Capricorn at MOJOPOPlanetPower.com/Patience. Tell me what you think (dream).…

Bee Healed: A Tip for Allergy Season

It’s time to think about it. Spring blossoms will be here sooner than we realize. Although the first pollens are weeks away, now might be a good time to prepare the immune system for the springtime onslaught collectively called “hay fever.” Honey of a deal. People have been using honey medicinally for thousands of years. Vials of honey found in the pyramids were perfectly edible when found five thousand years later. Pure honey does not spoil. It may naturally crystallize but gentle, low heat will bring it back to its liquid state. Many people find that using honey in the springtime is a natural way to avoid allergies. Understandably, since Big Pharma could never patent honey and make billions, little…
