    From the sands of the Sahara to the mountains of northeastern China to the Konyak tribes of India, sophisticated thrill-seeker and humanitarian Zelda Kaplan has just about seen it all. These days the 92-year-old socialista spends her evenings ping-ponging about Manhattan, regaling hipster artists, the fashion elite, and A-listers like Pen'lope Cruz with her amazing multicultural tales.

  • Entertainment Breaking Out For Love

    It had been five years since I last saw Steven Russell, but when I interviewed him in December at the Michael Unit near Palestine, Texas 100 miles southeast of Dallas, he was still pasty and pale. More than a decade of spending 23' hours a day in a solitary confinement cell in a maximum security prison will do that to a man. If he were simply a great con artist, his conditions would probably be less severe; it's his reputation as an escape artist extraordinaire that landed him where he is.

  • Entertainment Through a Cleanse, Darkly

    The concept of a cleanse isn't difficult to understand: Stop putting crap into your body and you'll feel better. It's the same principle'behind healthy diets. Cleanses and fasts are just the most extreme version of dieting, a way to rid your body of toxins and give your digestive tract a rest. But cleanses take finesse.

  • Entertainment Scream-ing For His Supper

  • Liquidity Liquidity: Singles Club

    Raiding the liquor cabinet as a teenager, I found whisky to be the least benevolent of all the spirits, with a harsh medicinal kick that was tough to love. Only at university did I rekindle the relationship, often after a morning's bracing workout as a hunt saboteur. Back then the brand was rarely fancy, usually a cheap blended whisky, mixed with ginger ale, but it set me on the road to a love affair that I just can't quit.

    What follows is one of the sweetest, most impressive commercials we've ever seen. Granted, it's from Argentina and we're only seeing it because of YouTube, but still, it's clips like this that give us a little hope and helps us to hold onto that hope after hearing about people like Marco Rebeiro.

    One of the best things about living in New York City -- other than amazing restaurants and forty percent of the city being awake at 4 a.m. and plentiful wash and fold laundries -- is bumping into the famous (or semi-famous or infamous) when you're at the drug store buying Robitussin or riding to work on the F train.
