Mariah Carey’s New Flavored Drink Butterfly in partnership with Go N’Syde -2014

At a news conference announcing Butterfly’s arrival, the singer sipped the pink liquid from a champagne flute and described it as “a whole ‘nother thing,” then suggested that allowing a bottle of her elixir into your life is virtually like living among the platinum artist herself. “We can do this and I will almost be in the room with you,” she said as an electric fan outside the frame softly blew wind across her hair.

The new drink comes in a sensual, well-figured bottle and contains ingredients including water, sugar, sodium benzoate, sucralose and colorings including Red 40 and Blue 1.

Not coincidentally, the arrival of the Butterfly drink comes at the same time that the multiplatinum artist is promoting her new album “Me. I Am Mariah … The Elusive Chanteuse.” Released to great fanfare but poor reviews and middling first-week sales, the album currently sits at No. 3 on the Billboard charts.
That showing didn’t seem to bother her on Monday. She was focused on the beverage, of which she coyly gushed, “I don’t want to give away our secrets, darlings, but it’s — everybody else is going to be mad that they didn’t do it first.

The drink is available exclusively at Walgreen, purveyor of some of the world’s most exotic beverages.

Prince Alexander and Princess Katherine of Serbia’s LifeLine Gala-2014

Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Katherine of Serbia and her Foundation have inspired the work of Lifeline New York.
When HRH Crown Princess Katherine was in exile with her husband HRH Crown Prince Alexander, she always had her country in her heart. During those difficult years, Crown Princess Katherine worked hard to provide humanitarian aid to Serbia. Among Crown Princess Katherine’s many initiatives, she provided caravans of food, medicines and other necessities to refugees, regardless of ethnicity or country of origin. The Crown Princess has always believed that there are no borders in suffering.

Their Royal Highnesses returned to Belgrade in 2001 after the October 2000 revolution. Shortly thereafter, the HRH Crown Princess Katherine Foundation was established with the aim of helping disadvantaged people including children, the sick, refugees, internally displaced peoples and the elderly.

The HRH Crown Princess Katherine Foundation provides aid for medical institutions in the form of: medicine and medical equipment; medical training; implementation of reconstruction projects and extension of capacities. In addition, the Foundation addresses needs of children with mental and physical disabilities, children with special needs, and orphans.

Eric T. Schneiderman Attorney General of NYS ,KeyNote Speech at NY Puerto Rican Day Parade Gala -2014

Eric T. Schneiderman was elected the 65th Attorney General of New York State on November 2, 2010. As Attorney General, Schneiderman is the highest ranking law enforcement officer for the State, responsible for representing New York and its residents in legal matters. Schneiderman has worked to restore the public’s faith in its public and private sector institutions by focusing on areas including public integrity, economic justice, social justice and environmental protection.

Most recently, on June 13, 2013, Attorney General Schneiderman and San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón announced the formation of a nationwide Secure Our Smartphones (S.O.S) Initiative aimed at encouraging the cell phone industry to adopt technologies to deter the rising epidemic of violent incidents of smartphone theft by drying up the secondary market on which stolen devices are sold. As part of the launch of the S.O.S. Initiative, Schneiderman and Gascón commended New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli for urging the four leaders of the smartphone industry to protect consumers, and shareholder value, by working with law enforcement agencies and government officials to pursue a meaningful solution to the spike in smartphone thefts.

The Attorney General has taken a leading role in the national fight for a comprehensive investigation of misconduct in the mortgage market, and for a fair settlement for homeowners that holds banks accountable for their role in the foreclosure crisis, provides meaningful relief to homeowners and investors, and allows a full airing out of the facts to ensure that abuses of this scale never happen again. On June 4th, 2013, the Attorney General filed a lawsuit against HSBC Bank USA and HSBC Mortgage Corporation (USA) for failing to follow state law related to foreclosure actions, putting homeowners at greater risk of losing their homes. Attorney General Schneiderman is committed to bringing similar actions against other mortgage lenders who hold borrowers in the shadow docket in defiance of state law.

As part of a groundbreaking effort to bring transparency to the political process and protect donors to nonprofits, Attorney General Schneiderman adopted new regulations requiring nonprofit groups, including 501(c)(4) “social welfare” organizations that are registered with the state, to report the percentage of their expenditures that go to federal, state and local electioneering. Additionally, against a backdrop of an escalating drug abuse crisis, Attorney General Schneiderman proposed the “Internet System for Tracking Over-Prescribing Act,” or I-STOP. The I-STOP legislation creates a real-time, online database for doctors and pharmacists to report and track the prescribing and the dispensing of certain controlled substances.

In his first weeks in office, Attorney General Schneiderman launched a new “Taxpayer Protection Bureau” to root out fraud and return money illegally stolen from New York taxpayers at no additional cost to the state. He also bolstered the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, which has already recovered tens of millions of dollars for taxpayers on his watch. As part of his effort to crack down on corruption and restore the public’s trust in government, Schneiderman launched a groundbreaking initiative expanding his office’s authority to investigate public corruption involving taxpayer funds by partnering with the state Comptroller.

Also during his first year in office, Attorney General Schneiderman filed a legal challenge to the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) to compel the federal government to treat all New York State marriages equally; sued federal regulators to force a health and environmental impact review of proposed gas drilling in the Delaware River Basin; and challenged the Indian Point nuclear power plant’s practices related to high-level radioactive waste storage, earthquake preparedness and fire safety.

As the state’s top law enforcement officer, Attorney General Schneiderman brings with him a wealth of experience, in both the public and private sectors. Attorney General Schneiderman previously spent 15 years in private practice as an attorney, and later as a partner, at the firm of Kirkpatrick and Lockhart, where he handled complex litigation. He was also a public interest lawyer for many years, representing taxpayers in historic lawsuits against the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), tenants trying to evict drug dealers from their buildings, and women seeking access to health clinics.

Before becoming Attorney General, Schneiderman was praised as a leading reformer in the State Senate by numerous editorial pages and good government organizations across New York. Among his many legislative accomplishments, Schneiderman passed sweeping ethics reforms, chaired the committee to expel a corrupt senator for the first time in modern history, led the effort to reform the draconian Rockefeller drug laws, cracked down on health insurance companies seeking to deny coverage to vulnerable New Yorkers, and enacted the toughest law in the nation to root out fraud against taxpayers.

Attorney General Schneiderman graduated from Amherst College in 1977 and Harvard Law School in 1982. He is the proud father of a daughter, Catherine.

Dr Ruth Americas favorite Sex Dr, debut’s Talks about Grandparents at BEA-2014

Dr. Ruth Westheimer, America’s favorite sex therapist, will be celebrating double on June 4. It’s her 86th birthday and the publication date of her latest book, Myths of Love: Echoes of Ancient Mythology in the Modern Romantic Imagination (Quill Driver Books, June). The book, which analyzes Greek and Roman myths and their relevance to 21st-century relationships, is, says Dr. Ruth, “a departure for me because it’s more learned and more academic, which makes me very happy. And it is academic without being boring.”

The idea for the book was conceived during a visit to New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art by Dr. Ruth and her coauthor Jerome E. Singerman, a longtime friend and classical scholar. They were, she remembers, standing in front of Lucas Cranach the Elder’s 16th-century work, The Judgment of Paris, which depicts Paris (he of the Trojan War) trying to decide which of three goddesses—Minerva, Venus, or Juno—is the fairest. The painting became the midwife of the book,” Dr. Ruth says.
