_THE NEW YORKER_ is an American magazine of reportage, commentary, criticism, essays, fiction, satire, cartoons, and poetry. It is published by Condé Nast . Started as a weekly in 1925, the magazine is now published 47 times annually, with five of these issues covering two-week spans.

New York (magazine)
NEW YORK is an American bi-weekly magazine concerned with life, culture, politics, and style generally, and with a particular emphasis on New York City
New York City
. Founded by Milton Glaser and Clay Felker in 1968 as a competitor to The New Yorker , it was brasher and less polite, and established itself as a cradle of New Journalism

Rebecca Traister
. In its current incarnation under editor-in-chief Adam Moss , "The nation's best and most-imitated city magazine is often not about the city—at least not in the overcrowded, traffic-clogged, five-boroughs sense", wrote then Washington Post media critic Howard Kurtz , as the magazine has increasingly published political and cultural stories of national significance. Since its redesign and relaunch in 2004, the magazine has won more National Magazine Awards than any other publication, which includes the 2013 award for Magazine of the Year. It was one of the first dual-audience "lifestyle magazines ", and its format and style have been emulated by some other American regional city publications

Dandy
A DANDY, historically, is a man who places particular importance upon physical appearance , refined language, and leisurely hobbies, pursued with the appearance of nonchalance in a cult of self . A dandy could be a self-made man who strove to imitate an aristocratic lifestyle despite coming from a middle-class background, especially in late 18th- and early 19th-century Britain . Previous manifestations of the petit-maître (French for small master) and the Muscadin have been noted by John C. Prevost, but the modern practice of dandyism first appeared in the revolutionary 1790s, both in London
London
and in Paris
Paris
. The dandy cultivated cynical reserve, yet to such extremes that novelist George Meredith , himself no dandy, once defined cynicism as "intellectual dandyism". Some took a more benign view; Thomas Carlyle
Thomas Carlyle
wrote in Sartor Resartus that a dandy was no more than "a clothes-wearing man". Honoré de Balzac introduced the perfectly worldly and unmoved Henri de Marsay in La fille aux yeux d\'or (1835), a part of La Comédie Humaine

, who fulfils at first the model of a perfect dandy, until an obsessive love-pursuit unravels him in passionate and murderous jealousy

Politics
POLITICS (from Greek: Politiká: _Politika_, definition "affairs of the cities") is the process of making decisions applying to all members of each group. More narrowly, it refers to achieving and exercising positions of governance — organized control over a human community, particularly a state . Furthermore, politics is the study or practice of the distribution of power and resources within a given community (this is usually a hierarchically organized population) as well as the interrelationship(s) between communities. A variety of methods are deployed in politics, which include promoting or forcing one's own political views among people, negotiation with other political subjects, making laws , and exercising force , including warfare against adversaries. Politics is exercised on a wide range of social levels, from clans and tribes of traditional societies, through modern local governments , companies and institutions up to sovereign states , to the international level . It is very often said that politics is about power. A political system is a framework which defines acceptable political methods within a given society. History of political thought can be traced back to early antiquity, with seminal works such as Plato 's _Republic _, Aristotle 's _ Politics _ and the works of Confucius

Social Issues
A SOCIAL ISSUE is a problem that influences a considerable number of the individuals within a society. It is often the consequence of factors extending beyond an individual's social issue is the source of a conflicting opinion on the grounds of what is perceived as a morally just personal life or societal order . Social issues are distinguished from economic issues ; however, some issues (such as immigration ) have both social and economic aspects. There are also issues that don't fall into either category, such as warfare . There can be disagreements about what social issues are worth solving, or which should take precedence. Different individuals and different societies have different perceptions. In Rights of Man
Rights of Man
and Common Sense, Thomas Paine
Thomas Paine
addresses individual's duty to "allow the same rights to others as we allow ourselves". The failure to do so caused the birth of a social issue. There are a variety of methods people use to combat social issues. Some people vote for leaders in a democracy to advance their ideals. Outside the political process, people donate or share their time, money, energy, or other resources. This often takes the form of volunteering . Nonprofit organizations are often formed for the sole purpose of solving a social issue. Community organizing involves gathering people together for a common purpose

Art
ART is a diverse range of human activities in creating visual, auditory or performing artifacts (artworks ), expressing the author's imaginative or technical skill, intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power. In their most general form these activities include the production of works of art, the criticism of art, the study of the history of art, and the aesthetic dissemination of art. The oldest documented forms of art are visual arts , which include creation of images or objects in fields including today painting, sculpture, printmaking , photography, and other visual media. Architecture is often included as one of the visual arts; however, like the decorative arts , or advertising, it involves the creation of objects where the practical considerations of use are essential—in a way that they usually are not in a painting, for example. Music, theatre, film, dance, and other performing arts , as well as literature and other media such as interactive media , are included in a broader definition of art or the arts . Until the 17th century, _art_ referred to any skill or mastery and was not differentiated from crafts or sciences . In modern usage after the 17th century, where aesthetic considerations are paramount, the fine arts are separated and distinguished from acquired skills in general, such as the decorative or applied arts

Humor
HUMOUR ( British English ) or HUMOR ( American English ; see spelling differences ) is the tendency of particular cognitive experiences to provoke laughter and provide amusement . The term derives from the humoral medicine of the ancient Greeks , which taught that the balance of fluids in the human body, known as humours ( Latin : _humor_, "body fluid"), controlled human health and emotion. People of all ages and cultures respond to humour. Most people are able to experience humour—be amused, smile or laugh at something funny—and thus are considered to have a _sense of humour_. The hypothetical person lacking a sense of humour would likely find the behaviour inducing it to be inexplicable, strange, or even irrational. Though ultimately decided by personal taste , the extent to which a person finds something humorous depends on a host of variables, including geographical location , culture , maturity , level of education , intelligence and context. For example, young children may favour slapstick such as Punch and Judy puppet shows or the _Tom and Jerry _ cartoons, whose physical nature makes it accessible to them. By contrast, more sophisticated forms of humour such as satire require an understanding of its social meaning and context, and thus tend to appeal to a more mature audience

Culture
CULTURE (/ˈkʌltʃər/ ) is the social behavior and norms found in human societies . Culture is a central concept in anthropology , encompassing the range of phenomena that are transmitted through social learning in human societies . Some aspects of human behavior, such as language , social practices such as kinship and marriage , expressive forms such as art , music , dance , ritual , and religion , and technologies such as tool usage , cooking , shelter , and clothing are said to be cultural universals , found in all human societies. The concept of material culture covers the physical expressions of culture, such as technology, architecture and art, whereas the immaterial aspects of culture such as principles of social organization (including practices of political organization and social institutions ), mythology , philosophy , literature (both written and oral ), and science comprise the intangible cultural heritage of a society. In the humanities , one sense of culture as an attribute of the individual has been the degree to which they have cultivated a particular level of sophistication in the arts , sciences, education, or manners
