Hollywood's Gym-orexia

 Last week, I pawed through the newsstand, gathering as many issues as I could shove into my bag. To my dismay back at home, two of the four magazines that made the cut included pictures of Gwyneth Paltrow, promising to reveal how she got that "amazing" body.

Women Helping Women: BE A MENTOR

One of my greatest passions is helping young people find a job. I am old enough to remember the last depression - 2003 - when jobs were hard to come by. I had just finished school, and I swear, I could not find a job to save my life. Six months went by before a fabulous Media Agency threw me a bone - and that was the end of it.    Dana Eldad (my sister, Left) and Sheeri Avrahami - the next generation of Media Pros  ...more
