PUBLISHER’S NOTE

Photo by Yu Ha

Dear Readers, We are excited to present to you the highly anticipated Men’s Issue of Orlando Style, a great way to kick off the summer months with high fashion and the latest trends.

does not take very much to make us look good: a designer suit, a welltailored white shirt and a tie… voila! Ok, a few sessions at the gym may get you the better fit.

Even though the content of each and every issue is very much geared toward both men and women, this is certainly a special one for our large number of male readers. With Father’s Day coming up, this Men’s Issue is dedicated to the man of the household, who often goes without the credit he deserves. Today, there are quite a lot of responsible and dedicated men who take their job as husband, father, or boyfriend very seriously, and we want to commend them for their efforts.

We are so thankful for all of our readers, and this month is our opportunity to thank all of the men out there! We are grateful for you helping make Orlando Style the premier lifestyle publication in the area, as well as for always turning to Orlando Style for your fashion and entertainment fix. We hope you enjoy this Men’s Issue and the beginning of your summer, and we wish all of the dads out there a very Happy Father’s Day!

This magazine is in honor of all those men who take pride in their work and family. In a world in which popular culture reflects men in a negative light, this Men’s Issue is for the good ones who are still out there, the men tirelessly working to improve the standards of their careers, their homes, and their relationships. These are the keepers, and ladies, you may not notice them right away, but after the first or second “bad boy,” you’ll find that these are the men with whom you can really build a great relationship.

Sincerely,

Sven J. Bode Publisher

In this Men’s Issue, we have incorporated features just for the men in our audience, including the best trends in menswear fashion and fun things to do for the summer season.

THE ARTS

MY INTERVIEW WITH ROCK DEMARCO,

world-renowned performance artist and speed painter, took place on a quiet Wednesday afternoon and having personally seen him in action at the 2015 Runway To Hope Spring Fashion Soirée, I was eager to learn more about the three observations I had made during his performance: (1) Demarco loves art; (2) he loves Rock and Roll; (3) and he knows how to put on a hell of a good show. As I would come to find out over the course of the next 30 minutes, Demarco is also a hilariously wisecracking, generously giving, deeply passionate soul with a genuine disposition as colorful and attractive as the alluring art he creates. “I’ve always been involved in art,” Demarco told me as I inquired about his introduction to the art world. Whereas many artists started in a classroom, Demarco started a little closer to home. “I drew and graffitied on walls with crayon as a child and I got scolded for that. Flash forward years later and now my parents have been bugging me to come do a mural on the walls in their house, but I’m not going to

21 ORLANDOSTYLEMAGAZINE.COM

fall for that because last time I did that I got a scolding.” The day may come when Demarco finally decides to forgive his parents, but they may have to get in line for that mural because they aren’t the only ones trying to get their hands on an original Rock Demarco piece. With a fan base exceeding 250,000 social media followers and a world-recognized brand, Demarco’s work is, needless to say, in high demand. Fortunately, prints of his original pieces are now licensed and sold around the world. Demarco is excited to be able to share his artwork and make a selection of his pieces available to all his fans through a deal he’s signed with retail giant Walmart. With prices starting well below $100, now anyone can own a Rock Demarco print by simply searching “Rock Demarco” on Walmart’s online store. To go from drawing on walls with crayon to signing deals with one of the world’s most powerful companies is something to be beyond proud of, and it was clear that Demarco isn’t taking a single blessing for granted.


THE ARTS

I shifted gears then and inquired as to the series of events that led Demarco to his career in live performance painting. To answer the question, we had to wind back to 2001 when Demarco first got involved in the entertainment world. It all began with a gig to create a portrait of a CEO at a general session. “They sent me the guys photo and I practiced it beforehand, said Demarco. “Then I went up on stage and painted him, which led to me traveling with my show ‘Paint It LOUD.’” From that point on, Demarco continued to create images live on stage at events around the country and the world. During that time, Demarco experienced a game changing moment through an

unexpected interaction with “The Godfather of Shock Rock.” “At one point, someone from Alice Cooper’s management saw me out on stage and said, ‘We would like to bring you out to paint Alice. We think you’re demographic audience is the same as his and we think the audience would enjoy seeing a six-foot painting of Alice’s face being created at a concert.’ So I performed at his show and everything went great. From there I actually became very good friends with Alice and his wife Sheryl Cooper. With that friendship a lot of doors opened.” - R.D. Since that fateful encounter, Rock has gone on to do shows with an incredibly 22 ORLANDOSTYLEMAGAZINE.COM

impressive roster of talent. The list going on and on, and on featuring everyone from rock stars Gene Simmons and Slash to Hollywood actors Johnny Depp and Dan Aykroyd to comedians, athletes, pop stars, TV personalities and more. “Art is music to my eyes,” says Demarco. “I have an appreciation for the music world and I have an appreciation for the art world so when I do my show, those two worlds collide and become one.” He’s also performed at movie premieres, professional ball games (yes, even the Super Bowl!) and has appeared on many major TV networks. Somewhere in between his demanding tour schedule, Demarco even finds time for commissioned work from both


THE ARTS

celebrities and fans. “I actually get a lot of commissions where people ask if I’ll do their car or their dogs. In fact, I once painted a sixfoot painting of somebody’s three pound dog,” he exclaimed with a laugh. Even as Demarco spoke about his tremendous successes in the industry, there was an air of humbleness and gratitude that continuously revealed itself with each statement. “I look back on some of the paintings I did 15 years ago and I like how my art has come out over the years, but you’re always improving so I don’t know if I’m at the ‘I made it’ point yet.” - R.D.

One of the more humorous moments of my interview occurred when I asked Demarco if he wore his signature gloves while painting in his personal studio. It was then that I learned there are two Rock Demarcos in the world, but I think this is best explained in his own words: “There’s Rock Demarco that you’re talking to and there’s Rock Demarco stage character. Rock Demarco stage character is a very outgoing, wisecracking, mischievous person. The Rock Demarco studio artist is more subdued and passive although the stage character comes out a little bit. That was advice Alice Cooper gave me years ago. He 23 ORLANDOSTYLEMAGAZINE.COM

said, ‘Leave your stage persona on stage, kid. Don’t live it cause if you live it you’ll crash in the end.’ I found that to be so true and pretty good advice otherwise I’d be taking a shower in my platform boots with full eye makeup on and trying to grab the soap with my gloves. It’s always funny when I meet people who know me only by my stage character. They’re like, ‘Wow, you don’t have any makeup on!’ and I’m like, ‘Um hello? I don’t wear makeup when I go into Publix.’ ” - R.D. Another interesting fact about Rock Demarco the studio artist? He’s originally from Boston, but now resides in the beautiful Sunshine State. “I woke up one day and became a light


THE ARTS

weight,” said Demarco. “I couldn’t take the cold and the snow. Now I live in Winter Park and there’s something special about it, it’s really a neat place. The architecture and the brick streets reminds me of New England, but without the snow.” In addition to a love of Winter Park and the Florida sunshine, Demarco is also a vintage car enthusiast. “I have a car problem,” confessed Demarco. “If I wasn’t married I could live in a giant garage filled with cars with a sleeping bag on the floor.” But regardless of his passions and guilty pleasures, it all comes back to art in the end and for Demarco there’s nothing more rewarding than being able to give back through his celebrity platform.

“My paintings at charity galas sell for tens of thousands of dollars. I’m happy to say I’ve raised quite a lot of money for people in need over the years.” - R.D. The total sales of Rock’s art at auctions have raised a whopping two million dollars for various charities with his highest painting reaching $105,000 and benefiting a charity started by Alice Cooper. As a close friend and fellow philanthropist, Cooper was a big inspiration behind Demarco starting his own foundation called The Paint Like A ROCKstar Foundation. The nonprofit provides art supplies and art therapy programs to children that are chronic and 24 ORLANDOSTYLEMAGAZINE.COM

terminally ill in hospitals. For their last event, Demarco dressed in costume and painted a big underwater mural with the kids at Arnold Palmer Hospital For Children in Orlando. Now the foundation is working to develop a Paint Like A ROCKstar app, which will allow sick children who can not be exposed to paint to still be able to create beautiful art through their smart devices. “Everything is fast paced in the entertainment world and it’s very grounding to be involved with children that need your help because there’s something genuine there that you’re really missing out on when you’re earning a living in the make believe world.” - R.D.


THE ARTS

As our time together came to an end, I marveled at the never ending list of Demarco’s gigs, projects and personal endeavours. Last month alone, Demarco appeared as a surprise guest on The Chew in celebration of their 1,000th show and just a couple weeks later, painted live alongside Tony Bennett at Bennett’s 90th birthday at the MGM Grand. As if he isn’t busy enough, the #1 voted performance speed painter will soon star in his own TV show Paint Like a ROCKstar, which is currently in production. The future is exciting for Demarco and all of us at Style Magazines can’t wait to see that future unfold. For his fans and other art enthusiast, Demarco has four simple words

ASTON

MARTIN

A new chapter in Aston Martin’s history began at the 86th International Geneva Motor Show with the unveiling of the DB11. The first product launched under the company’s ‘Second Century’ plan, DB11 is the bold new figurehead of the illustrious ‘DB’ bloodline and an authentic, dynamic sporting GT in the finest Aston Martin tradition. The DB11 showcases a fresh and distinctive design language, pioneering aerodynamics and is powered by a potent new in-house designed 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12 engine. Built upon a new lighter, stronger, and more space efficient bonded aluminium structure, DB11 is the most powerful, most efficient and most dynamically gifted DB model in Aston Martin’s history. As such, it is the most significant new Aston Martin since the introduction of the DB9 in 2003. Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer, Dr Andy Palmer said: “We aspire to make the most beautiful cars in the world. DB11 is the absolute embodiment of what an Aston Martin should be and we have worked tirelessly to ensure that DB11 combines both exceptional design with the latest technology throughout. A brand new bonded aluminium platform, clever aerodynamics, a new characterful twin-turbo 30 ORLANDOSTYLEMAGAZINE.COM

V12 and class-leading infotainment systems are just a few aspects which make this the sports car that will proudly spearhead Aston Martin’s second century plan.” Heralding a new design era for Aston Martin, DB11 is the latest landmark in a remarkable aesthetic journey; one that gave us icons such as the DB2/4, DB5 and, most recently, the DB10 developed specifically for James Bond. DB11 re-imagines the relationship between form and function with a series of fresh design signatures. Foremost amongst these are the front-hinging clamshell bonnet, distinctive LED headlights and accentuated lines of the iconic Aston Martin grille. The profile is equally dramatic, thanks to the roof strakes that flow uninterrupted from A-pillar to C-pillar. The clean lines continue at the rear, with a sloping decklid that smoothly blends into boldly sculpted tail-lights to create a new and unmistakable graphic. Innovative aerodynamics play their part in this aesthetic revolution with clever management of airflow both over and through the bodywork aiding stability while preserving the DB11’s uncluttered surfaces. Front-end lift is reduced by the gill-like Curlicue which releases highpressure air from inside the wheel arch via a concealed vent within the redesigned side-strake.


TOYS

LIKE EVERY ASTON MARTIN, THE HEART OF THE DB11 IS FOUND BENEATH THE BONNET, THOUGH UNLIKE ANY ASTON MARTIN BEFORE IT.

Meanwhile, rear-end lift is reduced by the Aston Martin AeroBladeTM; a virtual spoiler fed by discreet air intakes located at the base of each C-pillar. Air is ducted through the bodywork, before venting as a jet of air from the aperture in the rear decklid. Like every Aston Martin, the heart of the DB11 is found beneath the bonnet, though unlike any Aston Martin before it, the DB11’s heart is a 5.2-litre twin-turbocharged V12. Designed in-house this new engine develops 608PS1 (600BHP1) and 700Nm1 of torque, making DB11 the most powerful production DB model ever. Naturally, it’s the most dynamic and most accelerative too, with a top speed of 200mph1 and a 0-62mph time of just 3.9sec1. Thanks to intelligent bank activation and stop-start technology that potency is matched by greatly improved efficiency. To exploit the advantages of its new body structure and harness the immense performance of the new twin-turbo V12 engine, the DB11’s chassis, suspension, steering and electronics have been reimagined and key new technologies embraced. Multiple driver-selectable dynamic modes

- GT, Sport and Sport Plus - progressively intensify the response of the engine, 8-speed automatic ZF transmission together with the new electric power steering and Torque Vectoring by braking while increasing the firmness of the adaptive damping for a greater sense of agility. The result is a driving experience that combines exemplary ride comfort and true sports car agility, for an extraordinary breadth of dynamic capability. As a true 21st century Aston Martin the DB11 combines the very latest technology developed in conjunction with technical partner, Daimler AG, with the finest quality and hand craftsmanship. Using a fullcolour 12” TFT LCD display, the all-new instrument cluster presents primary vehicle information with absolute clarity, while a second, centrally-mounted 8” TFT screen is dedicated to infotainment. Controlled via an intuitive rotary control, with an optional touchpad offering character recognition, multi-touch and gesture support, the new satellite navigation and audio system have never been more effective, sounded better or been easier to operate. A newly implemented auto-park assist feature and 360-degree birds-eye view camera helps provide safe

maneuvering at slow speeds and is also operated via the car’s infotainment system. With wider door apertures, significantly increased occupant space - especially head and legroom in the rear - fully integrated rear ISOFIX mounting points for a pair of child seats plus a luggage compartment large enough to accommodate two large holdalls plus carry-on baggage, the DB11 is a genuine Grand Tourer. Thanks to an inspiring palette of colours and a vast array of detailing options, its interior can be perfectly in-tune with your unique personal style. From calming, carefully co-ordinated tones to sharp contrasts in hue and texture, your choices are virtually limitless. Nexus quilting and Celestial perforation add layers of beautiful complexity and intrigue, while ornate leatherwork, such as intricate brogue detailing, creates areas of visual and tactile delight. Dr Andy Palmer said: “This is not only the most important car that Aston Martin has launched in recent history, but also in its 103year existence. The DB11 rightfully places Aston Martin once again as a leading brand in the luxury automotive market”.

SOCK IT TO ME BABY! By Allison Tankersley

Spending all day in an office working your nine to five, mind-numbing job may be boring, but that doesn’t mean your style has to be. Spice up your suits with the help of this bold, new fashion trend we are seeing in menswear fashion this season: the sock. The introduction of the fashion sock for men is all about bringing to life your monochromatic suit with a fun pop of color on your feet. This trend is one we are seeing catch on in men’s fashion for every age and style because there are so many different types of designs on these socks that it’s almost impossible not to find something that will fit in with your look. For those who like a more subdued and refined style the perfect fashion sock for you might be one without a lot of pattern on it, but instead, something in the complimentary color family of your suit. A popular way to do this is to pair a red or a pink sock with your navy suit pants or a purple or bright blue sock with your khaki pants. If you’re looking for something a little more striking without going too bold try a complimentary color with a thinly drawn simple design in them such as paisley or argyle.

FOR MAXIMUM SUAVE COMPLETE THE LOOK WITH A PAIR OF WORN LEATHER COLORED WINGTIP DERBY SHOES. If you think your style is a little more daring then you may want, skip the complimentary colors all together and play up the geometric trends we are seeing in mens socks. Go bold by pairing your office attire with a loud colored sock that features multicolored shapes especially those that feature lots of angles like triangles and diamonds. These eye catching socks are the perfect companion to a slim tailored suit with a simple tie that incorporates a color from the socks. For maximum suave complete the look with a pair of worn leather colored wingtip derby shoes. Supposing that you are a hipster, rocking a wicked man bun or a sleeve of tattoos and working in an office space that’s more casual than business, you can take one step further and get borderline ludicrous with your sock choices. For the ultimate level of “sock boldness” try to go for a high 48 STYLETOME.COM

contrasting look. This is still about being fashion forward, so I am not recommending socks with crude graphic screen prints from the kiosk in the middle of the mall; while that may make a statement it’s probably the wrong one. Instead, find the sock that is still pretty neutral in its colors (black, white, grey, deep red, navy, olive green), which has a large bold print around the entire sock such as tribal or stripes. In order to achieve this high contrasting look without looking foolish it is important to be mindful of the outfit you’re pairing these with. Keep the bottom half of your outfit the most simple in order to avoid clashing with the socks with dark colored jeans and coordinating dark colored chukka boots. There is a little more room to play with what to wear as a top, whether you prefer button ups or a sweater just be mindful of your socks to avoid going from a high contrasting look to an “I got dressed with the lights off” look.

CELEBRITY SOUP

FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT! MOVIE STARS WHO LIED TO GET A ROLE Looking at the incredible success of some of Hollywood’s biggest names, it can be hard, if not impossible, to imagine them before they were famous and had casting directors falling at their perfectly pedicured feet. Of course, there are some celebrities who were simply born into fame, but there are plenty more who weren’t fortunate enough to have a last name guaranteed to get their foot in the door (I’m looking at you, Jaden Smith). When nepotism isn’t an option, other aspiring actors have to resort to doing it the old fashioned way: taking expensive acting lessons, going to as many auditions as possible and holding your head high through hundreds of “no’s” as you hold out for that one “yes.” Oh, and also by telling a pack of lies to weasel your way into a coveted role. Fortunately for these Hollywood liars, the only thing that caught on fire were their careers.

GEORGE CLOONEY Luckily for all his admires, People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” didn’t experience excessive nose growth when he was caught in this embarrassing lie. Early in his career, Clooney was desperate to get a Screen Actors Guild card, which was required to pursue his Hollywood dreams. During one fateful audition, Clooney tried to beef up his resume by telling a lie about having a role in a film called Cat People. Unfortunately, Clooney hadn’t done his homework and didn’t realize the casting director he was auditioning for was the same director who had cast for Cat People. Oopsies! Needless to say, she immediately caught Clooney in the lie and ended up passing him for the role. But take heart, there’s a happy ending! Who knows why, but something the casting director saw in Clooney made her decide to help the future Academy-Award winning actor get into the union through a different movie, and the rest is history!

MORGAN FREEMAN There’s a reason why Morgan Freeman has one of the most recognized voices in Hollywood. Over the years, Freeman has become a celebrity in the voiceover industry by narrating dozens of feature films, short films, documentaries, commercials and more. Earlier this year, the star even delighted fans of Jimmy Kimmel Live! by narrating pedestrians on a street in an improv segment that has racked up millions of views on YouTube. Though the Academy-Award winner has also proven his worth as an actor, that hasn’t stopped countless castings for his voiceover work alone. Such was the case for the 2013 Action/Mystery flick, Oblivion.

By Riesa Pascal

50 STYLETOME.COM


CELEBRITY SOUP

Casting directors hired Freeman to narrate their film only, but this time he wasn’t content with just being behind a microphone. In order to get some screen time, the sneaky actor told director Joseph Kosinski that he was experiencing throat issues and would be restricted in his narrative capabilities. Rather than replace Freeman, Kosinski gave him an onscreen role instead, which went on to become a major part of the hit film.

LIAM HEMSWORTH When it comes to the Hemsworth brothers, it isn’t hard to imagine them excelling in any and every sport they touch. I mean c’mon, have you seen them? Both have undeniably strong and athletic builds, but apparently there is at least one sport that Liam Hemsworth never quite mastered. I may not be an A-list celeb, but one thing he and I do have in common is that we both suck at volleyball. Unfortunately for Hemsworth, the producers of The Last Song made it clear that they were looking to cast someone who knew how to play the sport well. In order to get the role, Hemsworth told a lie about having been a volleyball superstar. Although he won the part, the fibber couldn’t hide his lie for much longer once the day came around to film the volleyball scene. In an interview, Hemsworth said everyone on set figured out pretty quickly that he hadn’t been “totally honest” about his skill with a volleyball. I guess even the Hemsworth brothers can’t be perfect at everything!

EDDIE REDMAYNE In researching for this list, the most common Hollywood lie I came across was knowing how to ride a horse. From Anne Hathaway to Daniel Craig, dozens of celebrities have told this bold-faced lie in the audition room. In fact, Daniel Craig has lied about his horseback riding skills so often—and landed so many of those roles—that he eventually became very good at it! Unfortunately for British actor Eddie Redmayne, telling this lie blew up in his face in a very dangerous way. While auditioning for a lead role in the miniseries, Elizabeth I, Redmayne intentionally misled director Tom Hooper into thinking he could ride a horse. Several weeks later, his lie came to light on set during a major scene that nearly became his

last! Seated on top of a horse and too embarrassed to admit he couldn’t ride, Redmayne gave a gentle nudge with his spurs and nearly killed himself and the crew when the horse took off running. Needless to say, Redmayne was immediately sent off to pick up some real riding skills before shooting resumed. Surprisingly, Hooper decided to work with Redmayne again on the hit movie Les Misérables and even put his character on a horse, reportedly in a bid to get back at the actor for his prior horse-riding dishonesty.

ROBERT PATTINSON Much like the other stars on our list, Robert Pattinson is now a household name, but that wasn’t always the case. When he was just starting out in the industry, Pattinson would tell royally big lies to help him land some roles. In order to give himself an edge over the competition, the charlatan claimed time and time again that he attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, one of the most prestigious performance institutions. Pattinson opened up about his lies in an interview saying, “If you’ve got an English accent you can get away with it. I’d say I went to Oxford (University), too. I did it for years.” Apparently it worked and eventually the lie helped him land the role of Cedric Diggory in 2005’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Not only would Pattinson also lie about his age during this time, he would even lie about being American when convenient! Of course, there was no longer a need for the tall tales after Pattinson was catapulted to Twilight fame, but something tells me he (and his bank account) have no regrets.

DURING ONE FATEFUL AUDITION, CLOONEY TRIED TO BEEF UP HIS RESUME BY TELLING A LIE ABOUT HAVING A ROLE IN A FILM CALLED CAT PEOPLE. UNFORTUNATELY, CLOONEY HADN’T DONE HIS HOMEWORK AND DIDN’T REALIZE THE CASTING DIRECTOR HE WAS AUDITIONING FOR WAS THE SAME DIRECTOR WHO HAD CAST FOR CAT PEOPLE.

DON’T MISS THE BEAT

THE LEGACY OF A TRANSCENDENT SPIRIT By Courtney Caggiano

“A strong spirit transcends rules.” This was stated by a man who transcended rules in every form and fashion, a man who challenged and changed the world of music with innovation and elegance, a man who will forever be regarded as a legend of his own caliber. Prince. Only when a legend has passed on can we see the fullness of the greatness that defined a too-short life that impacted the lives of so many. Prince was unlike any artist who was or is to come, and the lives impacted by his musical triumph will surely keep his legend living through his timeless songs and ageless sensibility. On April 21st, the world mourned the loss of this legend and celebrated the immortality of his legacy. Fans of every age and generation marked the day with tears and memories of the irreplaceable musician who was taken away from this earth too soon. At age 57, this dimensional singer, hit songwriter, and undeniable showman left behind a world that had been transformed with his own creativity and boldness—a boldness that refused to be limited by rules. From the beginning, Prince had a heart set on pursuing its own way. Born on June 7th, 1958, Prince Rogers Nelson immersed himself in music through creative ways of learning and self-discovery. With a musician father and a jazz singer mother, Prince taught himself to play the instruments that surrounded his home environment. Of his background and training, he once stated, “I think you’ll always be able to do what your ear tells you.” This statement is not far from the idiosyncratic persona of the Prince we came to know and love. “Do what your ear tells you.” Pretty simple. From learning musical instruments to taking the stage in front of thousands, Prince lived life outside of the rules, following wherever his ear and his heart led him.

53 STYLETOME.COM

Transcendence was key in Prince’s artistic pursuit of breaking the rules. Even in the studio, Prince recorded the majority of his groundbreaking songs on his own, playing all instruments and singing each melodic and harmonic vocal line. This was so pervasive in the musician’s career that many of his albums were credited, “Produced, arranged, composed and performed by Prince.” Onstage, Prince continued to flourish in his his graceful transcendence, becoming a confident and risk-taking bandleader, taking his shows to a higher level than the performances of his contemporaries. With every album, Prince not only shattered the expectations of his fans and critics; he broke his own rules as he maintained a path of originality. From his second album, 1979’s Prince—which contained his No. 1 R&B hit, “I Wanna Be Your Lover”—Prince never failed to get his albums to reach the Top 100. His success could be greatly attributed to the fact that no album brought the music that critics or fans were suspecting. Always changing, never reproducing, Prince challenged himself every step of the way, even challenging his identity with his third album, Dirty Mind. Prince transcended not just music, but social borders and boundaries. The music video for his single, “Little Red Corvette,” became one of the first songs performed by an African-American that aired regularly on MTV. A master of his art on every level, Prince proved that he could succeed—and surpass—others with his influential music that was far ahead of its time, without being limited by race. Now, looking back on Prince’s mountain of legacies, we remember not just a man who conquered music of the late-20th century; we remember a man who dreamt of transcendence in every aspect of society—and earned it with songs from a purple guitar.

TAKE OFF TO JUPITER AT JUPITER BEACH RESORT & SPA By Dana Damato Standing tall in Warrior Pose never felt so peaceful.

Finding inner peace (or peace and quiet in general) is one of the most difficult things to do in a busy lifestyle. Whether you’re balancing a family and a career, a high-stress job, or stress of everyday life, one thing most people neglect doing is taking care of themselves. Had I never visited the exquisite Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa, I may have never experienced a yoga session quite like this one – where I reconnected with myself and found that peaceful state of being. Located on the picturesque east coast of Florida, Jupiter is located approximately halfway between Cocoa Beach and Miami. Never heard of this beach town? You’re not alone - consider Jupiter one of Florida’s most precious hidden gems and home to many famous athletes and celebrities such as; Tiger Woods, Celine Dion, Michael Jordan and Olivia Newton-John. Jupiter attracts many for its low-key and laid back beach town vibe while still being an ideal destination for the affluent. What makes us love Jupiter so much? Aside from the stunning beaches and endless activities and dining options, we are in love with The Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa! This resort is a luxury hideaway offering effortless elegance and casual sophistication in a tropical atmosphere. With a dedicated staff

ANIMAL LAW

THE LEGAL COMMUNITY IS SLOWLY RECOGNIZING OUR FURRY FRIENDS ARE FAMILY. award in the amount of, let’s say, your adoption fee from the shelter? What about the owner’s pain and suffering in a case of gross negligence by a groomer, police officer, neighbor or veterinarian?

Every month, we discuss legal issues surrounding current

affairs and lifestyle topics that affect our community, friends and family. But what about our furry friends? They, too, are part of our families, are they not? Of course they are, but the law doesn’t truly treat them as such. The law, in fact, is fairly antiquated, and in most circumstances a companion pet will be considered “personal property” or a “chattel” with its value being only what you paid for the animal.

Unfortunately, the various districts in Florida have differing views on whether or not a plaintiff may be compensated for negligent infliction of emotional distress caused by the untimely loss of a pet. Some districts apply the “impact rule,” which essentially requires that a plaintiff must demonstrate that the emotional distress suffered resulted from some form of physical impact with the plaintiff during the incident. There

How can this be? We now live in a world that has evolved to fully embrace the emotional attachment we establish with our beloved pets, yet theft or loss of a pet only results in an 58

STYLETOME.COM


N o r m a N ’ s is an exception to this rule is if psychological trauma or mental distress becomes an actual physical manifestation as a result of the incident, which triggered such trauma or distress, or if psychological trauma or mental distress results from directly seeing or perceiving a close family member injured or killed due to someone’s negligence. The problem here is that the law does not consider pets to be part of our family. Other districts have allowed for recovery of damages for emotional distress without having applied the “impact rule,” and this seems to be the trend. Increasingly juries are awarding (and judges are affirming these awards) substantial damages to pet owners for the loss of pets, and recognizing that animals have much more value than the adoption fee paid to the shelter. A majority of these healthy awards have been for the unreasonable and unfortunate shooting of companion dogs by police officers. While police officers undoubtedly have a duty to protect themselves from attack, often times the trigger is pulled before an officer can make a determination that the dog was just being friendly. We can at least be thankful that the courts are heading in the right direction. As awful as it may be to think about these things, when visiting your vet, always read the waivers carefully, ask questions and make sure you know who is going to be administering treatments, medications and surgical procedures on your animal. Find out who will be caring for your pet if he or she is staying overnight for treatment, grooming or boarding. Oftentimes veterinarian practices allow interns or nonlicensed veterinarians to perform procedures that they may not be entirely familiar with, and you may be able to request your animal be cared for by a specific individual. The standards of care are not scrutinized in veterinarian medicine as they would be with humans in a hospital. Animal law has been slowly evolving and lawyers are happy to take on a variety of different animal related cases. According to the Florida Bar Animal Law Committee, a body of law exists which consists of statutes, rules and case law relating to companion animals, animals used for food, animals used in research and entertainment, and wildlife, domestic relations, landlord/tenant, condominium associations, international and historic animal protection laws, animal cruelty, pet trusts, entertainment and sports law, equine law, agricultural law, health law, and criminal law, among others. Society is more “pro-animal” than ever before, but remember, it is truly up to you at the owner to ensure your furry friend lives the safest, happiest and healthiest life possible. And in the words of Bob Barker, “Help control the pet population. Have your pets spayed or neutered!”

BEAUTY

IT’S NOT YOU. IT’S THE EYEBROWS. By Stephanie Ferazzoli

SHAVING DOES NOT GET TO THE ROOT OF THE HAIR, STILL LEAVING THE REMAINS OF THE HAIR SHOWING ON YOUR SKIN, GIVING YOUR EYEBROWS THAT FIVE O’CLOCK SHADOW APPEAL.

One of the first things that girl is looking at is your eyebrows. Being one of the more obvious physical characteristics on your face, we want you to know how to take care of them. Men’s grooming can be misleading, but we are here to tell you the do’s and don’ts of eyebrow maintenance.

THE FINE LINE: Men with eyebrows that are too thin and too sculpted can give off the impression that they are too into themselves and that they spend too much time on their eyebrows. Most men will admit that they get their eyebrows waxed or shaved, but the trick is to tweeze away the hair. Tweezing cleans up the hair around the eyebrows without giving too much definition. As a man, you want your eyebrows to look great, yet, as natural as possible. Over shaping them will only make you look super metrosexual and kind of girly.

THE UNIBROW:

THE WEED WACKER BROW:

Eyebrows are very important in framing your whole face. They make you look polished when well taken care of. With that being said, the unibrow has got to go. This is probably the easiest hair to get rid of and trust me, a girl will notice. Any hair above your nose shows that you don’t put forth effort into your appearance, and most women will find you unattractive.

There is nothing wrong with full eyebrows; bushy eyebrows, however, are not the easiest on the eyes. Having thick eyebrows are a blessing for many, and probably the easiest to maintain. A trim of the hair here and there won’t kill you. Brush eyebrows up using a comb and then gently trim eyebrows with a scissor. Any stray hairs can go, but leave most strays above and below your brow line to maintain a masculine arch.

THE FIVE O’CLOCK SHADOW BROW: Shaving eyebrows are never the answer. Although, it has been proven that shaving does not make hair grow any thicker or faster, the hair will still look thicker because the ends are no longer naturally tapered but now blunt. Shaving your eyebrows may also cause the hairs to grow out in odd directions. Shaving does not get to the root of the hair, still leaving the remains of the hair showing on your skin, giving your eyebrows that five o’clock shadow appeal. Put down the razor, pick up the tweezers.

60 STYLETOME.COM

All men know the essential benefits of being well groomed. Your eyebrows shape and frame your face. Taking some of the weight out of your eyebrows can completely change your face and the impression you give, while still keeping your masculinity. Your wife, girlfriend, and society will thank you.

Dad Bod for the Win! By Allison Tankersley

Everyone’s favorite e-card from the early 2000’s said, “Ten years from now ‘swag’ isn’t going to pay the bills.” Ten years later and that e-card writer is proving to be quite the psychic. The biggest proof of this is women’s new obsession with the dad bod. The dad bod is any man whose body looks like it spends more time running errands for his lady then running laps around the track. While in the past that may have been seen as the guy you stick with the girl who came out with your group for a GNO

that nobody really likes but now this same guy is the big win that everyone is fighting over to captivate. What sparked the change from six pack to dad bod? It isn’t so much that women everywhere are drooling about the idea that you can devour a large pizza and a case of cold brews all in one sitting, although we are impressed, it’s more of a turn on about what having a dad bod symbolizes. In the eyes of a woman if you are a man with a dad bod it means that you work hard during the day so that the gym isn’t always an option. It means you drive a car that will have four doors and a decent size trunk to put our shopping bags in. Being a man with a dad bod shows you know your way around your kitchen not only to cook but also to clean. It also means that you won’t ask us to go on the dreaded gym date, drink your green breakfast shakes, or expect us to always be in top physical shape ourselves.

62 STYLETOME.COM

Having the dad bod means you admit defeat to the days of going out all night with your boys in search of a girl for the night. Women as a whole thank you for this. It is much easier for you to have found this out on your own. You have made your own template about how to be a relationship guy, and we like it. The attraction that comes with a dad bod also comes from the name itself. Whether it be our daddy issues or our pressure by society to procreate, something about the dad bod gets our blood pumping. It shows to us that you are ready for that next step in your life and you will take care of us and also any future children we could have together. A rock hard six pack may get you somewhere with the ladies, but it won’t get you to the place you want to be the most: their heart.

TEETH WHITENING By Naomi Shif

From black to white, this emerging all natural teeth whitening trend is getting some much needed attention. Activated charcoal is the new organic, kosher, odorless and tasteless option when it comes to teeth whitening alternatives. Activated charcoal is produced by heating wood (or another highcarbon product) to high temperatures, and then oxidizing it. Safely contrived from all natural wood or coconut shell sources, this powerful powder contains highly absorbent properties that remove surface stains on the teeth including coffee, tea and wine. Continuous oral use has been shown to drastically pull discoloring residue from tooth surfaces. Just

carefully apply the powder with a mixture of water or traditional toothpaste, scrub for two to five minutes and rinse. Some worry about the abrasive natures of the charcoal in conjunction to tooth enamel, yet to be determined, has users in such cases spotcorrecting in substitution for actual brushing of the substance onto the teeth. Don’t forget to show your tongue some love, this powder changes the PH balance in the mouth to also assist in expelling bacteria and toxins that contribute to bad breath. This wonder substance has also been used for decades as a natural food & alcohol poisoning treatment. In these instances the activated charcoal serves as a major toxin absorbent 66 ORLANDOSTYLEMAGAZINE.COM

when ingested into the body, speeding up recovery and expelling of harmful chemicals. The porous surface of activated charcoal has a negative electric charge that causes positive charged toxins and gas to bond with it. Once bonded the toxins are then naturally flushed from the digestive system instead of being soaked up into the bloodstream. Available worldwide in capsule or ultra fine powder form, and inexpensively accessible, this product is worth a taste. If you aren’t afraid to get a little dirty, blackout your mouth with this harmless substance. If worried, ask your dentist before using.

YOU GOTTA BE

KIDNEY ME THE KIDNEY BEAN DIET

THAT’S SWEEPING THE NATION By Allison Tankersley


STYLE MD

The white kidney bean diet is one of the biggest new diet trends this season. With health and beauty always at the forefront of our brains, especially with swimsuit season upon us, it’s no wonder that this carb killer is dominating the health market this season. It came as quite the surprise that something as simple as the kidney bean, an item that is considered a staple food group for many people, is now being advertised as one of the fastest ways to lose weight while still staying healthy. While this supplement is not recommended if you are trying to drop an increased amount of weight over a long period of time, it is recommended as the perfect supplement for slimming down quickly. The kidney bean extract, scientifically known as Phaseolus vulgaris, is promoted as a weight loss supplement that acts as a “starch blocker.� The white kidney bean has the

ability to prevent the alpha - amylase enzyme that is created within your saliva and slows down, or completely stalls, the digestion of the carbs found in starches. Dietary specialist recommend to take the extract thirty minutes before each high starch meal for best results. This all natural dietary supplement has proven a statistically, significant reduction in body fat when used on a short term basis especially as a quick way to trim a few pounds before your big summer getaway. With so many diet supplements on the market it can be hard to pick the best one for the results you are looking for. However, this magical white kidney extract seems to do the trick for everyone. Unlike some of the crazier dietary supplements that leave you feeling sick or starved, the kidney extract works more as a supplement diet, blocking calories in a way that will rid your body of unnecessary carbs while still feeling refreshed. This extract is also packed with nutrients that

69 ORLANDOSTYLEMAGAZINE.COM

will benefit your body far beyond weight loss and may even help prevent heart issues and lower your sugar levels. Beyond all of the health benefits that this diet delivers it is also one of the few, truly all natural diets currently on the market. The kidney bean itself along with a variety of vitamins is what does all the work in this supplement. So spend your time relaxing around the pool and even splurge yourself with a yummy, poolside treat without the added stress of counting calories by starting on the ever popular white kidney bean diet.

As always, consult with your doctor before starting any new diet supplement and diet.

Dr. Grand feels that all family members should have annual comprehensive eye examinations, especially children, whose eyes grow and change rapidly. While they are in school there is a great demand on their visual systems. If children cannot see it, they cannot learn from it. For adults, it’s like having an eye physical. There are many things that can go wrong with the eye that are painless. Celebration Eyecare examines the whole visual system, including the general health of the eye. They examine and follow patients with hypertension, cataracts, diabetes, and other systematic diseases that can affect the eye. They treat and follow patients with glaucoma, macular degeneration, dry eye, and Latisse treatments. They also do all pre and postoperative care for Lasik patients.

JASON CRANE

Real Estate Asset Disposition Corp.

I am often questioned about what I do for relaxation. To me, it is surfing in Brazil, Scuba diving in the Philippines, mountain climbing in Colorado or skiing in Maine. While growing up in New England, I was always athletic & continue to harness the drive to push my limits, explore, & travel as an adventurer & extreme athlete. I have traveled extensively throughout South America. I speak 3 languages. I have been sky diving, hang gliding, sandboarding, white water rafting, wake boarding & shark diving. I strongly believe that if you are not making yourself uncomfortable, then you are not growing. In April, my climbing partners & I summited Mt. Hood in Oregon. At 11,250 feet in elevation, it is the tallest mountain in the state. I also participated in successful winter summits of Mt. Washington in NH (6,289 ft.) & Quandary Peak in Colorado (14,265 ft.). Another expedition is schedule in June for Mt. Rainier in Seattle. Mountaineering has many parallels to life & business. The sense of achievement in attaining the summit is an exhilarating, emotional experience unlike anything else. However, the most character building expeditions were those in which I did not reach the summit. Some of my most vivid recollections in real estate are deals on which I worked tirelessly, but never reached the closing table. Whatever your mountain – Make the commitment. Build a team. Calculate the risks. Have an adaptable plan. Be OVER-prepared. Accept the forces that are beyond your control. Fight & battle until you reach the summit, UNLESS the risks could result in major harm to yourself or others. Have the humility to turn back or re-assess your decision making process.

SPOTLIGHT ON THE LAW Special Promotional Feature

The defense of those charged with crimes by the federal government is significantly different from a case in state court. The old saying of “don’t make a federal case out of it” has grown out of the complexities of the defense of a citizen prosecuted by the United States. Some of these major differences include: 1. Florida state prosecutors must provide the defense with a list of its witnesses, who can then be deposed by the defense. In federal prosecutions, the defense is not entitled to a list of witnesses and cannot take depositions, except in extreme circumstances. 2. Juries in state court are drawn from driver’s license records whereas federal jurors are drawn from voter registration lists.

Mark L. Horwitz

FEDERAL CRIMINAL PROSECUTIONS By Mark L. Horwitz Criminal Defense Attorney

3. Federal cases more often involve extensive investigations into complex white-collar conduct and can result in trials lasting several weeks and, on some occasions, several months. 4. Sentences in federal court are generally much harsher than in state court. 5. Sentencing under federal guidelines is more complicated than in state court and therefore attorneys must understand the complexities to minimize the time in prison. These 5 differences, as well as others, complicate the defense of an individual in federal court. I have observed many examples of the adverse effects of these differences.

Law Offices of Mark L. Horwitz, P.A. 17 East Pine St.Orlando, FL 32801 P: 407-843-7733 • F: 407-849-1321 mark@mlhorwitzlaw.com • www.mlhorwitzlaw.com

One such example occurred when I was consulted by a defendant who had recently been sentenced to 7 years in prison on a mail fraud case in federal court. The prosecution filed an indictment that contained 10 separate counts of mail fraud. Each count alleged that the defendant had made false representations to obtain money from a different

person. The defendant’s lawyer advised him to plead guilty to one of the counts and that the remaining counts would be dismissed. The defendant was also told that the amount of loss would be limited to the money obtained from the person named in the one count to which he pled guilty. This was important, because under the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines a major determining factor in the length of sentence is the amount of loss. The defendant was agreeable to this because he provided false information to only one of the 10 people. After pleading guilty to the one count, the Presentence Report set the loss as the total received from the 10 individuals. His lawyer told him that this was a mistake and that he would contest this matter and have it corrected at the sentencing. The court rejected the defense lawyer’s argument. The defendant was sentenced to 7 years rather than the 1 ½ to 2 years that his lawyer had predicted. His defense lawyer practiced in federal court infrequently because most of his practice was in state court. What the defendant’s lawyer did not know was that in federal court the amount of loss includes “Relevant Conduct”, which in this case, included the other 9 charges even though the defendant did not plead guilty to those charges. To make matters worse, the lawyer advised his client that he should testify at the sentencing to tell the court that he did not make the false statements alleged as to the other 9 victims. As a result of this testimony, the Judge did not give the defendant credit for accepting responsibility for the crime, which also increased the sentencing guideline and the sentence. Unfortunately for the defendant, he was not told that testifying might result in increasing his sentence. This is only one of many examples of a defendant harmed by advice from a lawyer who is not fully versed and experienced in defending a Federal criminal case.

BEST FRIENDS

BE A HERO & ADOPT A PET By Alexandra Niblett Sometimes, we meet our best friends in school, while other times, we meet them at work, at parties, etc. But best friends don’t always come in people form — sometimes a man’s best friend is their lovable pet. If you’ve never considered adopting a pet before, maybe this year is the year to add some fun and responsibility to your life — maybe this summer is the right time to find a new companion. And while becoming a new parent to a cute cat or adorable dog takes a lot of responsibility, there are so many reasons why it’s worth the effort, time and care. 2.7 million adoptable cats and dogs are euthanized each year in the United States, according to the Humane Society. That number escalates because a significantly larger amount of pets come into the shelter compared to the smaller number of people who adopt. By adopting, you not only become a hero to your new furry friend, you will also help free a spot for another homeless dog or cat to temporarily reside until they’re loved and adopted as well.

Pets are great companions, and they’re called a man’s best friend for a reason. Dogs with medium to high energy can be fantastic jogging partners, while dogs and cats alike who have calmer, relaxed personas are the best cuddle buddies while you’re home enjoying a typical Florida rain shower or a movie on the couch. It has been proven that pets are emotionally, physically and psychophysically beneficial to humans. Adopting an animal will not only give you a conversation starter, it may also end up benefiting your health at the end of the day. Pets can decrease your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, triglyceride levels, and feelings of loneliness, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And because pets increase your opportunities for exercise, outdoor activities and socialization, what isn’t there to love about the idea of gaining a new family member?! More than 10,00 homeless dogs and cats will turn to the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando, according to their website. That’s just one adoption center of several here in 96 ORLANDOSTYLEMAGAZINE.COM

the Orlando area, so imagine even more than that waiting for new homes. Plus, not only is adopting a pet more affordable than buying from puppy mills, sometimes shelters will waive fees or offer specials, like the Orange County Pet Rescue and Adoption Center. If you decide to adopt and buy a cat there, you can bring home another one for free! People can also adopt animals for free if she or he adopting is a veteran, if the dog is heart worm positive, and if a person is adopting a senior pet that is seven years or older. The next time you get a day off, think about visiting a local shelter and playing with a dog, a cat, pups and kittens… you might fall in love with one and end up wanting to take home your new best friend! They’re known to love unconditionally, teach you responsibility, and benefit your health… what more can you ask for? And, you never know, someday you may realize that your pet rescued you!
