The Dream Factory

Call up the factory of Ares Design in Modena, Italy, ask to speak to its founder and CEO, Dany Bahar, and you may be surprised at where you are transferred to. “I live in Dubai,” laughs Bahar through his Swiss accent. “I’ve been out here for around six years now with my family, and I go back and forth between Dubai and Italy. At the weekend or for holidays, this is usually where I am.” But there are clear reminders for Bahar all over the city that he has a business to run, to make sure he doesn’t get too relaxed – for example, the Ares Design showroom on Sheikh Zayed Road, with another due to open shortly in DIFC. In fact, with so many different timezones to check in with, he probably doesn’t get much of a break at all. “We’ll be opening shortly in Los Angeles, Miami and Monte Carlo,” Bahar reveals. “But Dubai, Munich and, of course, Modena, are all open already.” Not bad for a coachbuilding company that was only founded in 2014, with January this year marking the official opening of the Modena location.

It’s pretty easy to recognize a climber: just look at their hands. Thick. Muscly. Callused and blistered. Fingers always slightly bent – as if begging for something to clamp on to. Looking for further proof? Ask for a handshake. Or, better yet, an arm wrestle. Just don’t plan on winning.

Read story: Nicaragua

During the winter holiday, our family backpacked around the cities and jungles of Nicaragua. We, my husband Dan and our children, Brodie and Mia, a fifth and third grader, are by nature drawn to the exploration of new lands. Nicaragua appealed to us. Friends who had visited relayed their experience of the natural beauty of the country and its people. We felt that it would be a good educational and cultural experience for our children who have been studying Spanish for years in a Spanish immersion school. So, for winter break, we traded our snowy mountain town of South Lake Tahoe, California, for the jungles of Central America.

Dear Music Industry

When I was young I had the impression I was being followed. Wherever I went, whatever progress I made, a sensation of worry would grab ahold of me. In the days of picking dandelions and coloring outside of the lines, it was easy enough to ignore all this; pushing it back under the bed like a creature from a children’s book. In recent years, with feelings of stress and panic growing prominent and manifesting into physical symptoms, it became necessary to acknowledge the obvious: anxiety was greatly impacting my life.
