Self-help guru whose sweat lodge ceremony led to 3 deaths is released

Last year, American author Pamela Druckerman touched off something of a minor national debate when she came out with "Bringing Up Bebe," which celebrated the upbringing of French children who, she argued, learned how to say hello and eat vegetables. "We aren't envious, but curious," said Jennifer Scott, whose 2012 book "Lessons from Madame Chic: 20 Stylish Secrets I Learned While Living in Paris" was inspired by her stint as an exchange student in the French capital. French women, Scott said, "don't appear to be worried about trends or what other people think of them. In fact, with regard to style, living and aging, they don't appear to be worried at all. I think that's something we can all admire." Jean Beaman, a sociologist at Duke University, said it's true that many American women perceive their French counterparts to be "fashionable and stylish (and) beautiful in an sort of effortless way." By way of example, she cited photographs of former French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, who was born in Italy but grew up in France from the age of seven.

Parody On Self Help Manuals Shows How Ridiculous January 'New Year, New You' Resolutions Are

pamphlet If you're reading this with a chocolate bar in hand, a glass of red wine in the other, and your gym membership card propping up a wonky table, then don't feel like all is lost - self help comes from within and in your own time, not down to the time of year. To perfectly capture this conundrum of wanting to change, photographer Oli Kellett and art director Stine Hole Mankovksy came up with these genius parodies of self help manuals. Talking about the project, they said: "Its the time of year when everyone attempts to give up their vices. People splash out on expensive gym memberships, and everywhere we are sold miracle cures and quick fixes. But we thought, only you can help yourself and the real fight when trying to give up bad habits is the mental one.

They are really funny We thought what if we did one where people were fighting themselves? Which we thought were perfect for the new year, to tell people that they really just need to protect themselves from themselves and battle their own thoughts." To make the images look natural, they used two sets of twins - a guy and girl set - and used wigs and moustaches to make them look completely different.
