Barbra Streisand Cloned Her Dog: Would You?

NextTribe Barbra Streisand pet cloning

There’s probably a lot you know about Barbra Streisand – that her breakthrough was in the movie Funny Girl, that  “Evergreen” was one of her biggest hits, and that you’ll never forget the way she said that line, “Your girl is lovely, Hubbell” in The Way We Were. But did you know she’s such a pet lover that she had her favorite dog—an adorable white fluffball–cloned after it died?

Next Tribe photo from E-Trade ad about seniors who can't afford to retire

What You Thought About That E-Trade Ad

We asked you what you thought of the ad that aired during the Super Bowlthe E-Trade one that showed seniors working, working, working as DJs, lifeguards, and fire fighters….because they can’t afford to retire.

Most of you were not crazy about the ad, feeling it made old people the punch line of a not so funny joke. Where’s the humor in not being able to afford to retire?

Next Tribe woman contemplates how to draw the line on sexual misconduct

Poll Results: This Is Where You Draw the Line on Sexual Misconduct

 

As we went to tabulate your responses to our survey about sexual misconduct, the news was still rife with stories of misconduct. Famous names in publishing, politics, the performing arts, and elsewhere were dismissed from their jobs or investigated.  We saw Salma Hayek speak up, heard calls for Al Franken not to resign from the Senate after all, and waded through still more lurid Matt Lauer revelations.

Next Tribe midlife transitions

What Changes Are You Making This Year?

One of my favorite songs is David Bowie’s “Changes.” During so many weird and volatile times in my life (moving, postpartum depression, moving again) I’ve taken comfort from that line, “Turn and face the strange ch-ch-changes.” To me it means, accept that change is inevitable; just roll with it. And so far, I’ve been able to do so fairly well (with a few exceptions of course).

Next Tribe metoo gone too far

#Metoo Movement: Gone Too Far? Not Far Enough?

When NextTribe first wrote about the #MeToo movement, two months ago, the Harvey Weinstein allegations were just beginning to—shockingly—pile up. We had worried that the movement had the potential to be elitist (all those movie stars!), turn women against each other (a lawyer and a designer were criticized for expressing unpopular ideas), and cause a loss of perspective about what is sexual harassment, or, a fuzzier term, “inappropriate touching,” as opposed what used to be called, in a less politically correct or politically enlightened (take your pick) time, horsing around or even merely flirting.

Cosmetic Procedures? You Said No-Nonsense, No Judgment

 

The knife? Injections? Or what? That’s what we wanted to know when we ran our survey a few weeks ago: Where you drew the line on cosmetic procedures?

The largest group of you—23 percent—said you were just planning to stay natural and avoid both non-invasive treatments, such as Botox and fillers, and cosmetic surgery.
