Oh, the stories she could tell.Cheng Tan sees the unfashionable side of the haute couture fashion shows in New York and Paris, from which she recently returned.The problem is “mum’s the word” under the La Jolla salon owner’s hair styling contract.While cutting edge-costumed models sashayed down the runway, she found herself unceremoniously washing the hair of one Phillip Lim model with hand soap in an aging building’s sink so low the model had to kneel on all fours. The emergency wash was to remove wax used to create the model’s hair-do in a previous show that day. At 35, Tan is one of a select brigade of hair stylists recruited by top fashion designers. She has been asked to do a “fresh shower” look as well as embed myriad items — brass birds, veils, flowers, starburst ornaments, etc. — in trendy tresses. She has styled for an androgynous look where sometimes the only way she could tell the male and female models apart was by … [Read more...] about Behind the scenes at Fashion Week in New York and Paris is far from glamorous

Harris June 17, 2018 No other city in the country screens students for as many schools as New York — a startling fact all but lost in the furor that has erupted over Mayor Bill de Blasio’s recent proposal to change the admissions process for the city’s handful of elite high schools.

Black and Hispanic students are underrepresented in many of the most selective screened … [Read more...] about A Shadow System Feeds Segregation in New York City Schools

The Yankees had been tracking him since he was in high school, and they signaled their interest last August by sending a contingent to Japan that included General Manager Brian Cashman. And with openings at designated hitter and in their pitching rotation, they were equipped to accommodate Ohtani’s desire to pitch and hit. The Yankees could also point to a lengthy track record — most of it good — of integrating Japanese players into their organization, including stars like Hideki Matsui and Masahiro Tanaka.
