Staying Motivated During Your Job Search

Posted by Levine Communications Office on December 29, 2010

As the economy continues to recover, US corporations have begun to hire again: just not in the US.  According to The Economic Policy Institute, a Washington think tank, says American companies have created 1.4 million jobs overseas this year, compared with less than 1 million in the U.S.  That paints a pretty grim picture for the nearly 9.8% of Americans who are out of work.

With few jobs being created stateside, navigating the job market continues to be arduous and the process can cause a great deal of stress.  But you can avoid the “burn out” by following a few simple guidelines. More Magazine discusses how you can stay motivated though you job search with a few simple tips in How to Avoid Job Search Burnout.  In the article, LCO Client and New York Times best-selling author Leanne Ely (savingdinner.com) discusses the importance of starting the day with breakfast as a way of keeping energy high during your search.  Check out what Leanne has to say and the other helpful tips in the article.

Remembering Ronni Chasen

Posted by Levine Communications Office on November 17, 2010

Levine Communications Office mourns the loss of friend and colleague, veteran publicist Ronni Chasen.  We were saddened and stunned to hear of her death that took place on Tuesday Nov 16th.  Ronni was gunned down on Sunset Boulevard early Tuesday, moments after she left the star-studded premiere of the movie “Burlesque”.   Police have not uncovered any motive or indicated any suspects, but have launched a thorough investigation into her death.

Michael Levine, head of LCO, remembers Ronni as a “beloved, iconic figure” and has started a reward fund to assist the Beverly Hills Police Department in bringing her attackers to justice.  The goal for the fund is $25,000 to be raised by next week.  We urge our friends in the Hollywood community to help us in the effort to find the criminals behind this senseless act.

Our deepest condolences go out to Ronnie’s family and friends.

If you have any information about this crime please contact the Beverly Hills Police Department immediately.  If you’d like to contribute to the reward fund, please contact LCO directly at (310) 300-0950 x 230.

Cleos VS. Cougars

Posted by Levine Communications Office on November 10, 2010

Check out this great blog post for the Huffington Post by LCO client Donna Estes Antebi:

My previous Cleo vs. Cougar blog touched off a firestorm of debate. Who knew? Magazines picked it up and bloggers ran with it. I heard from self-professed cougars who love the moniker and embrace the lifestyle (and all the testosterone-fueled, hard bodies that go with it). I heard from just as many women who hate being called a cougar and were thrilled with “Cleo” as it more accurately represents their relationship dynamic.

Cleo is a word I coined in my upcoming book, The Real Secrets Women Only Whisper. Skip the hieroglyphic records and think movie icon — Elizabeth Taylor as Cleopatra, whose immense power and legendary beauty made her irresistible. A Cleo is a smart, fabulous woman who dominates in her relationships due to a combination of power, accomplishment, beauty, money or age.

Modern day Cleos are everywhere: Oprah Winfrey, Gayle King, Ellen DeGeneres, Cheryl Tiegs, Sandra Bullock, Arianna Huffington, Halle Berry and Barbara Walters are all Cleos. A Cleo can bring home the bacon and share it with anyone she pleases. A Cleo doesn’t have to prowl for younger men. A Cleo is always desired — at any age. The name Cleo is not intended as a replacement for cougar. In fact, Cleos and cougars are more akin to siblings with different personalities. I even heard from a third faction that protested against both terms, citing that such sexist labels are never applied to men. And I don’t disagree. But since one word can serve as shorthand for an entire phenomenon, it looks like cougars and Cleos are both here to stay — and it’s time we give them the respect they deserve.

Since so much of this controversy is rooted in semantics, it’s important to understand that the word “cougar” came to America pre-loaded with a bad reputation. Cougar is actually a product of Canada. Over a decade ago in Vancouver, being called a cougar was considered the ultimate insult. It referred to a pathetic, lonely (often inebriated) older woman who preyed upon younger men after last call, hoping for a merciful sexual liaison. It’s no wonder that, despite Courteney Cox’s best efforts in her show, Cougar Town, many women still have a visceral reaction at the mention of a cougar.

A decade later, author Valerie Gibson sought to redefine the word in her book Cougar, A Guide for Older Women Dating Younger Men. Valerie said a cougar “knows exactly what she wants. What she wants in her life is younger men and lots of great sex. What she doesn’t want is children, cohabitation or commitment.” This new-and-improved definition resonated with a nation full of independent women. Then along came hot and hunky cub Ashton Kutcher who turned ageless miracle of nature Demi Moore (who really is a Cleo) into the patron saint of cougars and a new revolution was born.

As I was thinking about Cleos, cougars, and all things in between, I had a serious “aha” moment and I realized it’s time we give these sexy ladies some well deserved props and shift away from the negative stigma that rightfully belongs to “Weeds” (desperate women who sleep with other women’s husbands).

Cougars and Cleos are two different kinds of strong, independent women with one very important thing in common — they are generally not email waving Weeds standing in a Tiger Woods lineup. Cougars are just out for a bit of fun, and if that fun is between two single consenting adults (even if they’re 20 years apart), then why not? Cleos have no desire to be entangled in a compromising tryst with someone else’s baggage-laden husband.

The era of cougars and Cleos isn’t over. In fact, it may have only just begun. So let’s praise the liberated independence of cougars and Cleos. Let them enjoy their steamy sex with hot men, and the new Cougar culture that caters to them, complete with cruises, conventions and websites like TheRealCougarWoman.com, and a whole host of matchmaking sites like CougarLife.com, DateACougar.com, and the cleverly titled DateMrsRobinson.com.

We should celebrate the fact that cougars and Cleos are enjoying their own great lives and aren’t interested in destroying someone else’s marriage and family — which is a good enough reason for the 60 million wives in America to give them the respect they deserve. Cougars and Cleos don’t want your husband. They may want your son, but that’s a blog I’ll share another time.

One Hot Pleasure

Posted by Levine Communications Office on November 9, 2010

ERIKA JAYNE Launches Pretty Mess Records and

“One Hot Pleasure” Single Set For Label-Debut Release November 16


(LOS ANGELES) November 2, 2010 – Vocal temptress, seductive songstress and #1 Billboard chart queen ERIKA JAYNE is aiming to heat up this winter season with the launch of her own label, Pretty Mess Records. Currently working on new music for her second album (title TBA), the glamorous JAYNE will give a taste of what’s to come Tuesday, November 16 with the release of her new single “One Hot Pleasure.”

Written by Dave Audé, Luciana Caporaso (of the radio hit “I Like That” by Richard Vission & The Static Revenger starring Luciana) and Nick Clow, “One Hot Pleasure” sizzles just as the title of the song indicates. As the debut offering from her Pretty Mess Records, the song will be packaged with a striking video by JAYNE’s creative director and MTV video-music nominee Mikey Minden and visual collaborator, famed photographer Mike Ruiz, with remixes by Dave Audé, Ralphi Rosario, Dirty Loud, Sultan & Ned and Los Angeles newcomer Mr. White.

In Touch Weekly captured a moment with ERIKA on the set of the video that can be viewed here, or catch a glimpse of the making of her video at www.ErikaJayne.com.

“Launching my own label allows me to make music that I enjoy and deliver my product,” states ERIKA. “Having full control over the music, the message and concept enables me to make the records I want to make and perform the songs I want to perform. There’s great freedom in that, and it makes for a lot of fun. I can’t wait for my fans to check out ‘One Hot Pleasure,’ it’s a fun sexy danceable track.”

Distinguished by industry powerhouse Billboard magazine for an “uncommon feat” (issue date 6/26/10), the Atlanta-born, Los Angeles transplant sent her first four consecutive singles–“Rollercoaster,” “Stars,” “Give You Everything” and “Pretty Mess”– to #1 on the Hot Dance Club Songs chart. These chart-busting hits were featured on her 2009 debut album Pretty Mess.

According to Billboard, only 13 acts have taken at least their first four hits to #1 since the chart launched in 1976 as a national weekly survey of the most-played tunes as reported by club DJs. ERIKA joins the ranks of dance giants, including Rihanna and The Pussycat Dolls, who have accomplished similar feats.
