Jean Pare is best known as the author of Company’s Coming cookbooks, published and distributed by Company’s Coming Publishing Limited, which she co-founded in 1981. She oversaw publication of more than 17,000 kitchen-tested recipes and the publication of more than 200 cookbooks. After 30 years and 30 million cookbooks sold, she retired in February 2011.

Are lap dances a form of theater?
That’s what the owners of three Philadelphia “gentlemen’s clubs” are contending as they try to block the city from taxing income from private dances – a move that would cost them as much as $1.5 million.
During the next few weeks, the city’s Tax Review Board will decide whether Club Risque, Cheerleaders, and Delilah’s will owe an additional “amusement tax,” the city levy most commonly paid on tickets to a ball game or a concert – but not on theater tickets. Philadelphia exempts “legitimate contemporary American theater” performances from the amusement tax. So, lawyers for the three clubs argued Tuesday before the five-member tax panel that erotic dancing is in fact a theatrical performance.
To help their cause, they commissioned an expert report from a Queens College professor with two Yale School of Drama degrees

On Wednesday, Secretary of State Kerry sought to mollify domestic opposition to the treaty, saying that the agreement was aimed only at “terrorists and rogue actors.” The treaty covers everything from tanks and warships to small arms.

“This is about reducing the risks of international transfers of conventional arms that will be used to carry out the world’s worst crimes,” Kerry said.

“This treaty will not diminish anyone’s freedom,” he said. “It recognizes the freedom of both individuals and states to obtain, possess, and use arms for legitimate purposes.”

But the National Rifle Association (NRA), America’s most powerful pro-gun lobby group, has accused the White House of undermining the second amendment by signing the treaty.

“The Obama administration is once again demonstrating its contempt for our fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms,” said Chris W. Cox, the executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action.
