Transgender Model Makes History Walking The Tumbler and Tipsy Runway in North Carolina

July 07, 2016

Tumbler and Tipsy by Michael Kuluva has shown their newest pop culture influenced collection entitled "Equally Tipsy" staring the first transgender model, Candis Cox, during North Carolina Fashion Association "Style Week" on June 18, 2016 as a closing designer at the Le Meridien Hotel in Charlotte, NC. The new "Equally Tipsy" pop fashion collection was inspired by the ongoing equality issues running globally, specifically the "HB2" bill in North Carolina plus the tragic recent shooting at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, FL. With such a powerful inspiration for the collection, it was only natural for Tumbler and Tipsy to partner together with Equality NC. Equality NC is a North Carolina statewide organization dedicated to securing equality and justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people. Having a transgender spokesperson walk the runway this season was history in the making as bringing this...

Retirees Receiving a Public Pension may be Unprepared for Reduced Social Security Benefits

July 05, 2016

When a person reaches retirement, enjoying the golden years they envision for themselves generally requires a strategy that provides an income stream able to help weather inflation, market volatility, unexpected expenses and 20 to 30 more years of living. Planning for retirement means building a financial foundation and factoring in what needs to be done to keep the plan in place. But pre-retirees and retirees have a lot of information to sort through in order to make sure their financial needs can be met in retirement. Social Security is a valuable asset and should be the starting point for managing a retirement plan. Retirees use assets to produce income streams, and Social Security really functions the same way, in reverse. Social Security is an income stream but one doesn’t see the asset as a lump sum when you begin receiving distributions. Pensions, on the other hand, are funded from a lump-sum asset owned by the individual. With Social Security,...

"IT'S WRITTEN IN THE SKY": Emerging contemporary artist Hazem Giballi set to exhibit in Los Angeles

July 05, 2016

HNYPT Los Angeles is proud to present the exhibition "Unseen" with new works by Hazem Giballi (b. 1988, Egyptian-American) on July 21st, 2016. Giballi works out of Los Angeles.   Most of the works by Giballi focus on combining the contradicting aspects of perfection and chance by heavily relying on intuition while mark making.  His work appears aloof yet systematic, and though seemingly sparse, his paintings are carefully thought out and slow in process, with the artist often going through ten studies or more before becoming pleased enough to choose and paint one on a larger, more permanent scale.  This juxtaposition of principles leads to a charming feeling of nakedness and vulnerability.    His signature free flowing squiggles made with oil stick and paint directly from the tube combined with seemingly random charcoal marks on canvas create personal moments...
