Laura Seppänen Design Agency was hired to design the new, two-room residence of Stina Mäntyniemi, the head of Cosmopolitan Finland. The Helsinki-based interior designer and stylist created an all-white space that was clean and monochromatic, but at the same time, cozy and comfortable. With Scandinavian vibes, this minimalist apartment looks magazine worthy while also being livable. Crisp white walls, floors, and ceilings set the tone of the apartment and keep things fresh looking. Layered in are elements of black, the occasional grey, and a few green plants. The client didn't want any rugs or curtains, which tend to soften a space, but other textures were incorporated to help with that. Besides having no curtains or rugs, the only other wish the client had was to buy a Bertoia Diamond Chair, which is prominently featured in the living room with a black cushion.

SINCE the evening in 2004 when policemen arrived unannounced to escort him and his wife to safety, Geert Wilders has lived in safe houses under 24-hour guard to protect him from Islamist militants who threatened to kill him. Film-maker Theo van Gogh had been shot, stabbed and nearly beheaded by a militant Islamist earlier that day, and Wilders, another prominent critic of Islam, was seen as a likely next target. Nearly 13 years under protective seclusion have only strengthened his convictions. Wilders, 53, now wants to halt Muslim immigration, close all mosques and ban the Quran, which he compares to Adolf Hitler's tract Mein Kampf. He is on Taliban and Al-Qaeda hitlists, and blames Islam for the long confinement that ended his life as a cosmopolitan globetrotter. "I can hardly remember what it's like to cross the road alone," he said in February.

China has no shortage of things to see and do. From visiting the Great Wall near Beijing and the Terracotta Army in Xi'an to eating wonderful Chinese food in a chic Shanghai cafe or relaxing on a beach in suddenly trendy Sanya, there are countless reasons to visit the country. If you're a US citizen, you need to secure a visa before you go — whether you're visiting for business or pleasure. Shanghai is an ultra-modern and cosmopolitan city. Image courtesy of Getty Images. The easiest way to get a visa to visit China (or other countries that require a visa) is to use Allied Passport. You'll need to make sure you complete several steps (outlined below) before you can send your materials off to Allied to begin processing: One completed China visa application ( PDF ) One professionally printed passport photo on hard stock glossy paper with a pure white background Passport valid for six months beyond trip completion and side-by-side blank visa pages One flight itinerary with passenger name listed on reservation (required, but does not have to be a purchased ticket or confirmed reservationunbooked itineraries are acceptable) One Allied Passport & Visa order form (save to your desktop before typing) Once you've gathered all the above materials, send them via FedEx to Allied's office at the following address: Allied Passport 1 Saint Matthews Court NW Washington, DC 20036 You'll have to pay the Chinese embassy fees (which vary according to how quickly you need your visa), Allied's processing fee (which also varies according to date needed) and the return shipping costs, all of which can be found on Allied's site .

In 1982, ADL director Nathan Perlmutter wrote that he wasnt worried about the Evangelical theology because of the more pressing needs to fund Israel’s military. In his words: “We need all the friends we have to support Israel…If the Messiah comes, on that day we’ll consider our options. Meanwhile, let’s praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.” In 1994 Abe Foxman, the next director, showed more concern about Pat Robertson’s popular New World Order, which had condemnedcosmopolitan liberal Jews for their “assault on Christianity.” Foxman responded with The Religious Right: The Assault on Tolerance and Pluralism in America, warning of the imposition of a ‘Christian nation’ on America’s democracy. By 2002, when America imagined itself to be fighting the same War on Terror as Israel’s assault on the Palestinians during the Second Intifada, Foxman reconsidered and wrote “Why Evangelical Support for Israel is a Good Thing.

If you want to slash your unnecessary travel time, without sacrificing your cosmopolitan lifestyle (read: city) then you’re best heading for, wait for it…. Preston. The Lancashire city experiences the lowest unnecessary travel time of the bunch, at just 90 hours a year. Possibly not the best tactic for estate agents to employinsisting that scores of hours languishing unnecessarily in your car is preferable to the hundreds you’re likely to rack up elsewhere (a veritable treat!).

But these days, this is not all that women’s magazines have to say about Ivanka Trump, whose spokespeople declined to comment for this article. 2016 was the year Ivanka discovered that the genre couldnt be relied upon to provide uniformly flattering coverage. As a powerful surrogate for her father’s campaign, Trump saw her public profile change—and the coverage of her, both throughout the presidential race and in the first few weeks of the new administration, has reflected that shift. It was a Cosmopolitan interview that marked the inflection point. Last September, when then- Cosmo reporter Prachi Gupta landed an opportunity to question the eldest Trump daughter on the child care and maternity leave plan she spearheaded for her father, she pressed Trump hard on the details, asking why the policy didnt address fathers in same-sex relationships and inquiring about how it fit her father’s previous statements calling pregnancy a liability in the workplace.

To be fair, I'm out of practice. Still, plank posing for a full 34 seconds is an impressive feat for 6-month-old Rowan who's too young to say the words "plank pose," let alone pronounce the pose's proper name "phalakasana". At this rate, Rowan should have defined baby abs by summer. [H/T: Cosmopolitan ] Read more... More about Watercooler , Watercooler , and Video

Spitting on buses | Acid for sale | Betting industry | ‘sad cakesThe concept of poor behaviour as perpetrated by those perceived as “other” is not just a contemporary problem ( Suzanne Moore , G2, 23 February). As a student at a northern university in the 70s, I can remember cosmopolitan friends being appalled that we northerners had to have signs telling us not to spit on buses. Such crass behaviour was so unthinkable in the civilised south that no such instructions were necessary. Until I pointed out that London buses displayed notices informing passengers that expectoration was prohibited. An example of a superior class of poor behaviour in the polysyllabic south? Austen Lynch Garstang, LancashireWhen I was a schoolboy, not only did the chemistry sets on sale in toy shops contain bottles of acids but they could be refilled at the chemist’s without question ( Acid is all too readily available in the UK , Letters, 17 February).

At short notice, the hotel can organise tickets of the highest category to one of Europe's most effortlessly grand opera houses – a beautiful hall that regularly stages productions featuring stars such as Cecilia Bartoli, Diana Damrau and Stephen Gould and conductors such as Marco Armiliato and Carlo Rizzi. The jewels in the Bar au Lac's crown however, are unquestionably its two restaurants. The more casual of the pair is the Rive Gauche, "one of the places to be seen in the city centre," according to the Michelin Guide . "The great cosmopolitan interior attracts a trendy young and young at heart crowd to eat and drink but also to see and be seen." The menu may lack sophistication ­– dishes have humorous names such as "Pump up the bass", "Shelldon Cooper", and "Hummer Simpson" – but the food is very elegant. Those three dishes for example are, respectively, a roasted fillet of sea bass on savoy cabbage cream, scallops on black salsify with beurre blanc, and a lobster bisque with crustaceans.

“I love a library,” wrote Byre in his own Guardian essay announcing the project. I grew up in suburban Baltimore and the suburbs were not a particularly cosmopolitan place. We were desperate to know what was going on in the cool places, and, given some suggestions and direction, the library was one place where that wider exciting world became available. In my little town, the library also had vinyl that one could check out and I discovered avant-garde composers such as Xenakis and Messiaen , folk music from various parts of the world and even some pop records that werent getting much radio play in Baltimore. It was truly a formative place. Having grown up in the DC suburbs in the years before the internet, I can relate, and would add the importance of local music stores and affordable all-age venues. But Byrne has never stayed tied to the media of his youth.

" "Anything can happen," added Isaac Quaye, a first-time visitor from Ghana to the United States. When asked if he would return if the ban were reinstated, he shrugged. "I don't know … I can't tell." Yuthicka Sirohi, from Delhi, India, says everyone has a right to protect their country, but believes a "100% ban" against specific countries goes too far. While she might not hesitate to return one day, Sirohi says she might feel more comfortable visiting another cosmopolitan city like London to suit her "travel-a-holic" needs. Still, she hopes it doesn't get to that. "I think freedom is in the air here," she said. VOA Latin America Division's Vero Balderas contributed to this report.
