DramaFever co-founder Suk Park picks his five favorite cities: "For culture, Barcelona; for food, Seoul; for love, Paris; to relax, Las Palmas; to live, New York." Do you agree? Read more of my interview with the entrepreneur in the Chicago Tribune:
Born in South Korea, raised in Spain and educated in the United States, entrepreneur Suk Park now resides in Manhattan's Upper West Side with his wife and two children. Park, 41, is the co-founder and president of DramaFever ( http://www.dramafever.com ), a popular multilingual video streaming service that offers viewers subtitled foreign content.

I have begrudgingly joined the pro-grey movement. But rather than making me feel empowered and beautiful, my lighter hair makes me feel self conscious. My friends offer kind words (“I like your grey!” “It looks awesome!”), but they kind of have to say that. They’re my friends.

Grey Is Not The New Black. 9/16 frost singles 5. Did you know there's a grey hair trend? I know this because Glamour says so. But when fashionistas say things like this, they're not talking about grey hair on old people like me. They mean people like 22-year-old supermodel Cara Delevingne.

This week, I profile skier Mikaela Shiffrin, who is the youngest slalom champion in Olympic alpine skiing history. My column in the Chicago Tribune:

#olympics   #skiing   #mikaelashiffrin  
Skier Mikaela Shiffrin, 20, born and raised in Colorado, is already an Olympic gold medalist and the youngest slalom champion in Olympic alpine skiing history. "I travel mostly for skiing and feel so lucky to get to do that," she says. "In Europe, I will have a couple days off from training and my mom and I will just kind of pick up and go to Salzburg or Innsbruck. It's fun to go into the city and enjoy the scenery. But sometimes when we have day...

Not long after she finished college, Cheryl Della Pietra got a job as Hunter S. Thompson's assistant. Besides making sure that he typed up a page each evening, her job included partying with the eccentric author and his friends. In her novel, "Gonzo Girl," Della Pietra offers a fictionalized account of her time spent with Thompson.

In our interview for Chicago Tribune, Della Pietra and I talk about some of her travels, including a trip to Italy some 20 years ago: "Something takes over the sensible part of your brain when you land there. There's like an army of single men who go to 'work' every day on the Spanish Steps wooing foreign ingenues. In my early 20s, I let a complete stranger drive me around on a Vespa for half a day like we were on a reality show -- something I would never have done in America. We ate pizza and stopped for espresso and then he stranded me at the top of some overlook when I wouldn't kiss him. He said he was a cop. And the funny thing is, I believe it."

In her lively debut novel, "Gonzo Girl" (Touchstone Hardcover, $24.99), Della Pietra writes about a young Ivy League graduate who will only get paid if her boss, gonzo journalist Walker Reade, complete...

+Nathan Adrian : My son had a bad start, but managed to pass his competitors on his leg of the relay. His team finished 3rd. :-) They were pretty proud of themselves!

Do you have the ideal job? Trumpeter Rick Braun does. "I'm so incredibly grateful to achieve what I've been able to achieve and basically play around the world. I blow into plumbing for a living and I've managed to take it to a high enough level that people want to hear what I do and want me to play for them in their countries. It's an ideal job for me." Braun also tells me why he was Rod Stewart's MVP on tour. My interview with the musician in the Chicago Tribune:
A trumpeter, flugelhorn player and vocalist, Rick Braun started his career touring and performing with other musicians such ad Rod Stewart, Tom Petty and Tina Turner. And he's on tour now promoting his current CD "Can You Feel It." But the Pennsylvania native says that he never grows tired of being on the road.
