New York Moves

Fall 2020

Moves Magazine is a lifestyle magazine for city women (and men), unafraid to ask hard questions. We take on social, political, and global topics and show how women are shaping the world we live in today. Written with a progressive vibe, the magazine offers a provocative, often polemic view of society; an askance look at the world we live in.

c’est si bon

What was the last wine you drank? A Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa or a Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand? Possibly, you were able to experience a Chardonnay or a Pinot Noir from France’s Burgundy region. Although you can buy Chardonnay or Pinot Noir from all over the world, undoubtedly, the best ones are Burgundy wines. By definition, “Burgundies” are wines produced in the Burgundy region of France. You must be asking what it is that makes these wines the most sought-after by collectors, the most expensive in the market, and, frankly, the most delicious of their kind? Yes, there are superb Pinot Noirs and Chardonnay from Oregon, California, New Zealand, Tasmania, and Italy. But, seriously—have you ever had a glass of Batard Montrachet from Niellon or Ramonet? Is it the best…

https://newyorkmoves.com/political/tweedledee-tweedledum/ Modern politics resembles less the nostalgic concoctions of yesteryear and more a trip down the rabbit hole. The overarching black-and-whites are clearly defined (evil, tyrannical, guillotining Queen of Hearts: bad. Benevolent and beautiful, slightly quirky, solidly moral White Queen: good). But the details that compose the reality of laws and policies are always changing. Or they’re never what they seem. Or both. The ideal political state of affairs in America is indefinable and enigmatic. Yet everybody seems to think they know exactly what’s going on, whether they assert that the Public Option is necessary, or that ethnic profiling is okay in Arizona, or that the roses must be red. How many political decisions are reached by misconstruing a basic democratic tenet? Making broad generalizations about “what’s best” drives most sane people…

emily in paris

https://newyorkmoves.com/?s=emily+in+paris Just when we thought that there was nothing in 2020 that could bring Americans together, Emily in Paris came out on Netflix, uniting Americans and even Parisians in a passionate outcry. Nearly every media outlet and Twitter account wrote a hot take on the show, criticizing everything from the prevalence of belted outfits to Emily’s work ethic. It’s the show we love to hate. I personally love the show for what it is. A cliché fantasy of moving to Paris to work in fashion and start a new life. At a time when both the odds of travel and employment are dire, it’s an escape from reality. Plus, I was impressed by how creator Darren Star incorporated modern plot twists that set the series apart from his most famous work, Sex…

live now… or pay later!

https://newyorkmoves.com/?s=live+now+or+pay+later HEDONISTS, REJOICE! Harder! It is no longer taboo to be a self-indulgent pleasuremonger. A Columbia University study shows that, in the long run, people actually regret having missed out on opportunities for self-gratification and pleasure and wish they hadn’t practiced so much self-restraint. You read that right: it’s the abstainers who are unwise, unhealthy, and bound to regret their (in)actions! My parents always said I should plan for my future, so, Mom and Dad, I’m devoting my days to the pursuit of pleasure. Guilt begone! You have no power here! I have proven scientific fact on my side. (Did I mention the study was from Columbia University?) Not that I needed an incentive—I am weak and overwhelmed with temptation: clothing-optional vacations in Jamaica (note to self: call travel agent), limited-edition vintage reissue Manolo…

What that’s going to look like I don’t know, but I do know that one mishap and I think it’s going to set us back for a really, really long time.” In other words, no pressure at all, right? Catherine Hernandez-Blades is the Senior Vice President and Chief Environmental, Social, and Governance, and Communications Officer for Aflac.
