In 2006, Fair Oaks hit its stride with 26 new and remodeled stores. In 2007, 18 stores in the mall opened or were remodeled. Among the new tenants was luxury handbag maker Coach, helping cement the movement upscale. This year, 13 new and remodeled stores have been announced. An Apple store arrived in April.

Golf styles have come a long way from the early days when players wore knickers with a thick tweed jacket and a waistcoat. Starched collars and ties, sturdy shoes and tweed caps are definitely a thing of the past. Though the game has been played for centuries, it wasn't until the 1920s when golf fashion became relevant. Golfers, eager to appear stylish and chic on the links, quickly took to the new plus four, which was considered high-fashion then. The entire ensemble of the four plus included the golf hose with a pattern (knickers cut about four inches longer than usual), argyle knee socks and pullover sweater over the shirt and tie and the two-tone golf shoes. The late Payne Stewart revived this Scottish-links look, with dandified knickers and tartan sweaters, wearing them with style.The 1950s had many golf fashion icons such as Doug Sanders, known as the "peacock of the fairways" for his colourful fashion style. South African golfer, Gary Player, drew attention with his all-black outfits amid the wild rioting colours. It was only in the late eighties that golfers stepped into designer clothes and the professional who spearheaded this change was Greg Norman. His big hats, bold colours and his "Shark" clothing line became immensely popular amongst golfers worldwide.
19, with a quote from musician Butch Hancock: in Lubbock, Texas, taught me two things: one is that God loves you and you going to burn in hell. The other is that sex is the most awful, filthy thing on earth and you should save it for someone you love. The summit, co-hosted by Men Can Stop Rape and the Verizon Foundation, was the kick-off of the Healthy Masculinity Action Project (HMAP), a two-year initiative to mobilize men and women around the country to spread the value of healthy, nonviolent masculinity. Organizers reached out to faith-based organizations to act as allies, including Jewish Women International, the United Methodist Church General Board of Church and Society, and K-Life Ministries, groups that work toward economic and social justice for historically underrepresented populations with little fanfare and very little mainstream media attention.The work of those groups better represent my own experiences with faith and religion than the faith groups that dominate mainstream conversation. It a conservative, oil and gas town where the Planned Parenthood doesn even perform abortions but is still plagued by picketers and where even wedding ceremonies aren immune to pastoral lectures on the evils of evolution.So you think I would be your prototypical progressive who grew up under the yoke of religious conservatism, moved to the big city, and now posts antireligious screeds on my Facebook page to anger my high school classmates. But my earliest memory of questioning unhealthy, violent masculinity has everything to do with my childhood faith.
I was one of those kids that loved church. I attended every week, always paid attention, and even memorized the names of the books of the Bible. The moment came on a trip to the dollar store in the mall with my three brothers during the height of one of my fervors where my mother told us to pick something out. My brothers went straight to the GI Joe knockoffs and toy guns while I was entranced by a cross necklace. Picking jewelry instead of something manlier automatically made me the object of derision from my brothers. That was when I realized that there was something different about me, wh realized that desiring a cross necklace over a gun, somehow made me less of a boy.My church became a place for solace, a place where a boy who cried much too often could read John 11:35 ( wept where a boy who rejected toy soldiers could comfort himself in the Sermon on the Mount, where a boy could see grown men talk about their feelings, volunteer at homeless shelters, and strive for forgiveness over vengeance. That exactly what HMAP is all about: giving boys and men spaces to be their more authentic selves, to be the kind and caring men they want to be rather than the angry and solitary men they are told to be. Though they might not call it Healthy Masculinity, communities of faith have been teaching boys and men the value of being forces for good in the world for centuries. For many boys and men, Healthy Masculinity is not in a university, a conference, or on a sports team, but in their churches, synagogues, mosques, and other places of worship.
