The Millionaire Teenage Ad Girl Who Wrote the Book on Jazz Age Etiquette

In 1919, a New York advertising agency told 18-year-old Lillian Eichler that they did not hire women, or Jews, as ad writers. But her writing impressed the company officials so much that they changed their minds and hired her. She produced many innovative ads over the next few years. At the same time, Doubleday issued an etiquette book by Eleanor Holt, which was stuffy and old-fashioned, and did not sell too well. They needed help advertising it.

Lillian produced a campaign showing an agitated guest spilling a cup of coffee over the table cloth, with the caption ‘Has This Ever Happened To You?’ The ad swiftly sold the 1,000 copies of Holt’s encyclopedia, but they were just as quickly returned, readers finding the tone too old fashioned.
Doubleday hit upon the idea of having this fusty book filled with Victorian social dilemmas, being re-written and modernized. And who better to put a Jazz Age spin, than the copywriting prodigy that had created the ad.
“My mother was asked to rewrite this out of date book to make it more appropriate for the time”, recalls Anita Weinstein, Lillian’s daughter. “She was a very ambitious young woman. She was very proud that she was one of the very few women who would drive over the bridge [from Queens] to work in the city.” Astonishingly for 1922, the young copywriter not only re-wrote the book on etiquette, but dreamt up the ad campaign to sell it as well.
Lillian Eichler's Book of Etiquette was not stuffy, and addressed social manners from the viewpoint of a modern young woman, one like herself, who made her own way in life yet wanted to impress friends and family, bosses, and suitors. The book and several others made her a millionaire. Read the story of Lillian Eichler, and see pages from her books at Messy Messy Chic.

The 16 Best Cooking Tricks I Learned In Culinary School

Jesse Szewczyk graduated from the Culinary Institute of America, and now writes for Buzzfeed. He shares some basic tips for making your home-cooked dishes taste more like what you'd get in a top restaurant. If you've been cooking for a long time, you might know some of these things already, but it's always good to have a refresher course. For beginning cooks, it's an eye-opening list.
5. Completely dry your meats before cooking them.
Whether it's roasted chicken or seared scallops, drying them ensures you'll get a crisp, golden skin that won't stick to the pan. Pat them dry with paper towels or let them air-dry in the cooler for a few hours before cooking them.
6. For maximum flavor, toast your nuts and spices.
Toasting nuts and spices brings out their flavors and takes your cooking to a whole new level. For spices, give them a quick toasting in a dry pan over low heat or bloom them in hot oil. For nuts, toast them in a 350° F oven for 10-15 minutes before cooking with them.

Charlottesville Police ID and arrest more white supremacists

Two men have been arrested and one more is being sought by Charlottesville, VA police in connection to violence that took place two weeks ago that left 32-year-old Heather Heyer dead and 35 people injured, according to Charlottesville newspaper The Daily Progress.
Police arrested 52-year-old Richard Wilson Preston — a high-ranking member of the Ku Klux Klan — for discharging a weapon within 1,000 feet of a school. He was apprehended last Sunday in Towson, MD.
Daniel Patrick Borden, 18, is in custody in Cincinnati, OH on charges of malicious wounding, most likely in conjunction with the attack on 20-year-old Deandre Harris. Harris, a black man, was viciously attacked by a group of white men brandishing metal rods. The attack was caught on video, although white supremacists and neo-Nazis have continued to target Harris with abuse and harassment.
A second man, 33-year-old Alex Michael Ramos — most recently a resident of Mariette, GA — is wanted in conjunction with the same attack. He is still at large.
In a statement, the Charlottesville Police announced that the toll of injured persons in the car attack on a crowd of anti-racist counter-demonstrators has been raised to 35.
The statement said, in part:

To date, James Alex Fields, Jr. has been charged with second degree murder, five counts of malicious wounding, three counts of aggravated malicious wounding, and one count of felony hit and run in relation to the incident. At this time, our Detectives have identified 35 victims and have reached out to each of them. We are still awaiting a response from several victims. This is an ongoing investigation, with multiple victims, witnesses, and items of evidence. There is potential for additional charges as the investigation progresses.
