TRAVEL

Mohonk: Like a Cruise Ship on Land

The sprawling resort hotel in the Shawangunk Mountains of Ulster County, NY, Mohonk Mountain House can be what you need it to be: an active family vacation, a quiet couples’ getaway, a multi-generational vacation, a wellness escape, or a corporate retreat. Read More…

Napa + Cape Cod = The North Fork

No need to fly across the country to winery hop or sit in Cape traffic to experience quiet seaside towns and fresh local seafood. At the end of the L.I.E. the road splits: Route 24 to the right leads to the Hamptons and Route 25 to the left meanders by the vineyards and farm stands of the North Fork. There are stretches of beach and opportunities for fishing, paddle boarding, and other water sports, but locally harvested wine and seafood are the big draws. Fall is harvest season, full of special wine dinners and apple and pumpkin picking. If you follow the left fork, there’s no need to pack designer duds—men don’t even require collared shirts at the area’s best restaurants. But don’t let the casualness fool you. Hoteliers, restaurateurs, and sommeliers are sophisticated and on their game.  Read More…

Faces of Philanthropy: WILDLIFE IN CRISIS
Saving Wildlife One Life at a Time

Dara Reid was just 23 years old when she founded Wildlife in Crisis (WIC). Over the past 31 years, the nonprofit has consistently cared for more than 5,000 animals each year —from tiny hummingbirds to large black bears. “Because of the continuing development of open space, the need for our services grows every year,” says Dara. “’Death by a thousand cuts’ causes habitat fragmentation and the linear rise of injured and orphaned wildlife as a result.” WIC’s goal: returning debilitated wildlife to their natural environment.

Stopping the Spiral – Happy Fall!

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” Socrates

The Spiral Effect is a term that originates from political science and mass communication theories; however, society has become very health and fitness driven, why can’t it be applied to the exercise world? What exactly is the Spiral Effect? It stipulates that individuals have a fear of isolation, which results from the idea that a social group or the society in general might isolate, neglect, or exclude members due to the members’ opinions. This fear of isolation consequently leads to remaining silent instead of voicing opinions. I don’t know about you, but not one thing above relates to me at all. Read More…
