Rajib Chanda found the social scene at Brown University so grim that he formed HUGS, a computer-dating service to match students based on answers to a questionnaire. Chanda, a senior fraternity president, attributed the success of HUGS to a yearning for old-fashioned courtship, a way for students to dip a toe into the pool of intimacy and sex rather than plunge headfirst. At colleges across the country, students voice a similar lament: Instead of pairing off, undergraduates socialize in unpartnered packs. They go out to dinner in groups, attend movies in groups and at parties dance in a circle of five or six. The packs give students a sense of self-assurance and identity,but keep them from deeper, more committed relationships — which may be just the point.

Carmen Electra at home. By Gabrielle Bluestone. He wanted her without shoes. I was really nervous because you have to wear something. You know what I mean? Electra said. One thing comes off — but I always had shoes. In some of them, she does wear shoes. She says she loves the results. Clothing can act as a sort of metaphysical armor, and Ms. Electra said , she pushed herself to dress with the confidence of, well, a young Carmen Electra, even as she was chickening out of auditions.

Electra said, though she often felt defeated looking for ways to break into the industry. She was figuring out who she wanted to be after years of being told who she was. It was the artist formerly known as Prince who renamed Ms. Electra, the Ohio native formerly known as Tara Leigh Patrick, after he discovered her in auditioning for a girl group on his record label.

And your flight is leaving at 7 a. She got on the plane. He also helped Ms. Electra hone what would become her signature look at the time — big, Priscilla Presley-inspired eyelashes, a corset and hot pants under a cashmere coat, and heels — a mix of athletic street style dressed up under a veil of Hollywood glamour. Electra, who is now blonde. But Prince never sugarcoated things for her, even as he molded her into a star.

She played him her first demo recordings for Capitol Records, before he summoned her to Minneapolis. He had that. And I am forever grateful, because honestly, I learned so much from him, and it just gave me a little boost of confidence, to push. And I mean, that was really the beginning of getting over a lot of fears. But Ms. Electra, who was 18 when they met, felt too young, at least emotionally, for the romance that bloomed alongside their artistic partnership. It may have ended when she started dating someone in L.

Prince gave her an ultimatum: She chose L. But at that age, I was hurt. At one point, she confided in Prince about how badly things were going, and he offered her a lifeline: And that to me was like therapy. Electra appears to be on good terms with many of her famous bad-boy exes, a coterie that includes the basketball player-turned-North Korean envoy Mr.

Electra says of her romantic ideal. Not that all of her relationships ended well. Electra says one ex pointed a loaded gun at her head, and she and Mr. Rodman were both arrested in over a domestic incident, though the charges were later dropped. But that all came later in her career, after Ms. In those days, Ms. Electra would take out what little cash she had from an A. In a sea of stars in black, she tended to shine — regardless of the shock it caused to the sartorial nervous systems of People magazine editors.

A week later, she saw a picture of herself hanging in a window on Hollywood Boulevard. Along the way, they started clicking. She spent a couple years in the Pussycat Dolls, singing and dancing and generally elevating the performances of guest stars like Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani and Kelly Osbourne. She went from her Melrose outfits to Chanel couture. Once, she stumbled during a rehearsal in front of Gwen Stefani, an idol of hers.

Electra recalled. It really is. We have to make mistakes. You can tell a lot about people by their style. But you can never fully inoculate yourself against criticism. Like, for example, in , when Donald Trump told Howard Stern: They look like two light bulbs coming out of a body. Do they? It was odd, it came out of left field. And out of all these people, like why me? I kind of laugh about it, because we spend three hours getting into hair and makeup, and then you go to the show.

Electra said, something she first noticed after her impromptu Las Vegas marriage to Mr. The event took place just months after her mother died from brain cancer and her sister died from a heart attack. I started drinking. I never was addicted to drinking, but I was trying to not feel anything. I have a huge collection of self-help books and books on spirituality, stuff like that.

And though Ms. Electra might have come to L. In , for example, she debuted new music at the Palm Springs White Party before a crowd of 30, people, and it ended up doing better on the charts than the singles she cut with Prince. It was me.

The city is full of people we can’t reach. We pass them on sidewalks, sit across from them in the subway and in restaurants; we glimpse their lighted windows from our own lighted windows late at night. That’s in New York. In most of America, people float alongside one another on freeways as they drive between the city and the places where they live. To lock eyes with a stranger is to feel the gulf between proximity and familiarity and to wish — at least sometimes, briefly, most of us — that we could jump the hedges of our own narrow lives and find those people again when they drift out of sight. In a sense, the explosion of online personals speaks to the fervency of that wish. Online dating is the most lucrative form of legal paid online content. According to comScore Networks, which monitors consumer behavior on the Internet, 40 million Americans visited at least one online dating site in August — 27 percent of all Internet users for that month. The sites they visited range from behemoths like Yahoo! Personals and Match.

The 7 Biggest Bombshells in Brandi Glanville’s New Book

ON my first date with Mark, he asked how long it had been since my last relationship. I looked at the table, cupping my hand around my beer. I had always hated this question. We had worked together for two months, and in this crowded bar we spoke with the easiness and candor of good friends — he told me about the pain of his divorce, the financial strain, the loneliness. He had been hanging around my office, sending flirty e-mails and — most adorable to me and mortifying to him — blushing whenever I spoke to him. He was kind of in the bag. I had seen men balk at this information before — even when the numbers were lower. They would look at me in a cool and curious way, as if I were a restaurant with too few customers, a house that had been listed for too long. One man actually said it: He sipped his beer, and we moved on to other topics — our co-workers, Douglas Coupland novels, Seattle — and then, on a street corner outside the bar, to our first kiss. I knew I would eventually have to tell him.

Love in the Time of No Time

То, что она увидела, казалось неправдоподобным. Половина лица Хейла была залита кровью, на ковре расплылось темное пятно. Сьюзан отпрянула. О Боже. Значит, она слышала звук выстрела Хейла, а не коммандера. Как в тумане она приблизилась к бездыханному телу. Очевидно, Хейл сумел высвободиться.

Sometimes, It’s Not You

Он попытался оторвать голову от пола. Мир кругом казался расплывчатым, каким-то водянистым. И снова этот голос. Он присел на корточки и в десяти метрах от себя увидел чей-то силуэт. – Мистер. Беккер узнал голос. Это девушка.

Но и она тоже многим была обязана Стратмору: он стал ее защитником в мире рвущихся к власти мужчин, помогал ей делать карьеру, оберегал ее и, как сам часто шутил, делал ее сны явью. Хотя и ненамеренно, именно Стратмор привел Дэвида Беккера в АНБ в тот памятный день, позвонив ему по телефону. Мысли Сьюзан перенеслись в прошлое, и глаза ее непроизвольно упали на листок бумаги возле клавиатуры с напечатанным на нем шутливым стишком, полученным по факсу: МНЕ ЯВНО НЕ ХВАТАЕТ ЛОСКА, ЗАТО МОЯ ЛЮБОВЬ БЕЗ ВОСКА.

Дэвид прислал его после какой-то мелкой размолвки. Несколько месяцев она добивалась, чтобы он объяснил, что это значит, но Дэвид молчал. Моя любовь без воска.

Он не пользовался своими обычными почтовыми ящиками – ни домашним, ни служебными. Он бывал в Университете Досися и использовал их главный компьютер. Очевидно, там у него был адрес, который он сумел утаить. Это хорошо защищенный почтовый ящик, и мне лишь случайно удалось на него наткнуться.  – Он выдержал паузу.  – Итак, если Танкадо хотел, чтобы мы обнаружили его почту, зачем ему понадобился секретный адрес.

Когда коммандер заговорил, в его голосе звучали ледяные нотки: – Мистер Чатрукьян, я не хочу сказать, что вас это не касается, но фильтры обошел.  – Очевидно, что Стратмор с трудом сдерживает гнев.  – Я уже раньше объяснял вам, что занят диагностикой особого рода. Цепная мутация, которую вы обнаружили в ТРАНСТЕКСТЕ, является частью этой диагностики. Она там, потому что я ее туда запустил. Сквозь строй не позволял мне загрузить этот файл, поэтому я обошел фильтры.

 – Глаза коммандера, сузившись, пристально смотрели на Чатрукьяна.
