Look forward in anger: a fitting battle cry for stand-up raconteur Henry Rollins, the punk patriot who continues to wave his symbolic Black Flag behind enemy lines. Though the band of that name has retreated into history, Rollins refuses to surrender to either unfocused rage or age. Instead, he has become a lean, mean, top-billing comic machine, who has vented his outrage into a spoken-word performance that has taken much of Europe by storm.
Though his recent Scandinavian tour is part of a promotion for his IFC network show, “Henry Rollins,” the unflagging Renaissance man successfully exports more than just a TV show. He is a self-described “bad boy goodwill ambassador” who reassures the wary: “The U.S. majority is not synonymous with the moral majority; and our pop culture is not as feeble as our incumbent president’s speaking skills.”

Empowerment and Business Expert Entrepreneur, Author & Mom Jen Groover, Shares Her Tips for Raising Happy, Healthy, Empowered Children in New York City
The world children grow up in today is vastly different than the one many of us remember from our own childhoods – especially in New York City. As parents today, we want more for our children than just academic and career success, we want them to believe in themselves, lead positive, purposeful, rewarding lives and grow to become the best possible version of themselves. However, with their schedules jam packed with extracurricular activities, technology at their fingertips and a whole new breed of school bully, it is easy for a child living in New York City to feel powerless in their own life. It’s more important now than ever to empower children by giving them the tools they need to develop their own identity and the personal strength to achieve their goals and become their own role models for positive living.
