Shawls And Wraps Your Versatile Accessories

Posted on March 20th, 2017

Submitted by: Nicholas Jarder

Fashion experts would not recommend that you buy a lot of things just to be fashionable. They know very well that even with just a few pieces of clothing in your wardrobe, you can still look fashionable if you want too. The idea is mixing and matching and accessorizing. In the area of accessorizing, it is perhaps shawls and wraps that are the most versatile. You can do a lot with them to look very fashionable. Here are some suggestions for you to use your shawls and wraps well.

Say you are going to have coffee with your friends. You want to go casual so you just wore a plain white blouse and fitted jeans. You know your friends dress well. How can you make your simple get up stylish? What you can do is to pair your outfit with a shawl. A plain bright colored shawl is good the same with a printed one. What you need to do is to spread it wide then gather it along its length. Then drape it over your nape and you are all set.

While having coffee, your boss suddenly calls you up and asks you to meet a client. She said it is not a formal meet up but you still want to look more respectable. What you can do is to spread the wrap wide again and make two opposite ends meet. This should form a triangle. Wrap this around your shoulders with the tip at your back. Then tie the two other ends in front of you. If you have access to a bejeweled pin or a brooch then use it to pin the ends together.

After your meeting with the client, your partner suddenly calls and invites you to have a stroll in the park. Since it is cold outside, you can again use your shawl to your advantage. Spread the shawl wide and gather it along its length. Then fold it in half to let the two loose ends meet. You now have a loop on one end. Next, wrap it around your neck allowing the two loose ends to go through the loop created. This is a good style when walking outdoors during the winter season.

After your short walk the two of you decides to have dinner. You feel like the winter style is no longer appropriate. What you can do is to just use it as a belt. Spread it wide and fold it along its length. Then insert it through each and every loop. You can tie it on the side or in front. If your shawl is very long, you can use it over the belt area. Again, do the spread and fold step. There is no hard and fast rule as to how thick it should be so experiment. Wrap it around your waist over the belt loops. Tie it on the side or in front.

Now you finally decide it s time to go home. You reach home and sit in front of the tube to watch some movies. What happens to the shawl then? Spread wide the shawl and wrap it in front of you and your partner as you snuggle with each other.

Now who says that shawls and wraps are not versatile?

British conductor Edward Downes and wife die in double assisted suicide

Posted on March 20th, 2017

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

British conductor Sir Edward Downes and his wife Joan took their lives at a Swiss assisted suicide clinic on Friday, July 10, 2009, according to a statement from their family. Lady Downes, 74, was afflicted with terminal cancer, and Sir Edward, 85, was nearly blind with increasing hearing difficulties. These disabilities had forced him to give up conducting. Having no religious beliefs, the couple decided against holding a funeral.

The statement read, “After 54 happy years together, they decided to end their own lives rather than continue to struggle with serious health problems. They died peacefully, and under circumstances of their own choosing, with the help of the Swiss organisation, Dignitas, in Zurich.”

Many who knew the couple as friends said that Sir Edward was not terminally ill, but wanted to die with his wife, who he had been with for more than 50 years.

Sir Edward Downes’s children, in an interview with The London Evening Standard, said they escorted their parents to Zurich, and on that Friday, they watched in tears as their parents consumed “a small quantity of clear liquid,” and then proceeded to lie down together, holding hands.

“Within a couple of minutes they were asleep, and died within 10 minutes,” said their 41 year old son, Caractacus Downes.

Sir Edward was well respected in the operatic and orchestral worlds and was particularly noted for his performances of British and Russian music and of Verdi, conducting 25 of the composer’s 28 operas. He had a long association with the Royal Opera House, where he conducted for more than 50 seasons in succession. This did not stop him from refusing to conduct a series of performances of Verdi’s Nabucco there as he was “out of sympathy” with the adventurous production. His approach to conducting was similarly conservative. He wrote “The duty of a conductor should be to present… a faithful and accurate account of the composer’s music as he wrote it, disregarding any subsequent ‘interpretations’, ‘meanings’, or political agendas that may have been attached to it by others.”

It was on Friday, 28 September, 1973, that Sir Edward conducted the opening public performance at the Sydney Opera House, a staging of Prokofiev’s War and Peace by Opera Australia, of which he was musical director. Downes also served as chief conductor of the Netherlands Radio Orchestra and principal conductor of the BBC Philharmonic.

The family reported that Lady Downes “started her career as a ballet dancer and subsequently worked as a choreographer and TV producer, before dedicating the last years of her life to working as our father’s personal assistant.”

The Metropolitan Police have announced that Greenwich CID are investigating the circumstances of the couple’s deaths. Assisting a suicide is illegal in the United Kingdom.

Over 100 people who wished to die have made the journey from Britain to Switzerland to take advantage of the clinical services that Dignitas offers. British police have investigated many of the resulting deaths, but no family member has yet been prosecuted for helping relatives negotiate with Dignitas and travel to Switzerland. Debbie Purdy, a woman with multiple sclerosis, attempted last year to obtain a ruling from the English High Court that family members would not be prosecuted for helping someone use the service, and in particular that her husband would not be charged should she decide to use Dignitas in future. The court refused as it believed that such clarification is the responsibility of parliament and not the judiciary.

Last week the House of Lords rejected a proposal by former Lord Chancellor Lord Falconer to allow people to help someone with a terminal illness travel to a country where assisted suicide is legal.

No assassination plot against US presidential candidate Barack Obama

Posted on March 20th, 2017

Wednesday, August 27, 2008

Police in Denver, Colorado located in the United States say that three men who were arrested on August 25 for possessing drugs and weapons were not involved in a plot to assassinate US presidential candidate Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention that night.

“[There was] insufficient evidence of any kind of plot or threat [against Obama]”, stated Troy Eid, Colorado’s district attorney who also said the men were making “racist rants” while high on methamphetamines.

“The alleged threats, hateful and bigoted though they were, involved a group of… methamphetamine abusers, all of whom were impaired at the time. The evidence involving the alleged threats does not warrant federal charges now,” said Eid. Authorities in Colorado will continue to investigate the individuals. “The law recognizes a difference between a true threat – one that can be carried out – and the reported racist rantings of a drug addict,” added Eid.

The alleged threat began when an unnamed female who was with the men stated to authorities that they were shouting racists words and remarks about Obama. At least two of the men are claimed to have ties to white supremacists.

The three men are identified as Tharin Gartrell, 28, Nathan Johnson, 32, and Shawn Robert Adolf, 33. Gartrell was the first suspect arrested. Police found him driving a rental truck while weaving around the road on August 25 and with him rifles,ammunition, drugs, disguises, 2-way radios, a bullet proof vest and identification badges for three unnamed people. Johnson was arrested a short time later and Adolf was arrested trying to escape from police by jumping out of a hotel window on the sixth floor. He broke his ankle and was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Gartrell is facing charges of possessing drugs. Adolf and Johnson are charged with illegally possessing firearms and possessing methamphetamines. Johnson was also additionally charged with possessing body armor illegally.

Pink elephant spotted in Botswana

Posted on March 20th, 2017

Friday, March 20, 2009

A baby pink elephant was sighted in the African country of Botswana on Friday by a filmmaker for the BBC as he was filming for a wildlife documentary. The cameraman took photographs of the elephant when he noticed it in a herd of around eighty elephants in the Okavango Delta. According to experts, it is most likely an albino, an occurrence that is very rare among African elephants.

“We only saw it for a couple of minutes as the herd crossed the river”, said Mike Holding, who spotted the elephant. “This was a really exciting moment for everyone in camp. We knew it was a rare sighting – no-one could believe their eyes.”

“I have only come across three references to albino calves, which have occurred in Kruger National Park in South Africa,” said ecologist Mike Chase, who is in charge of the Elephants Without Borders conservation charity. “This is probably the first documented sighting of an albino elephant in northern Botswana. We have been studying elephants in the region for nearly 10 years now, and this is the first documented evidence of an albino calf that I have come across.”

The ecologist said that the condition might make it hard for the animal to survive for very long. “What happens to these young albino calves remains a mystery. Surviving this very rare phenomenon is very difficult in the harsh African bush. The glaring sun may cause blindness and skin problems,” he noted.

However, he added that it still might be possible for the elephant to survive, as it appears to be adapting to the condition: “Because this elephant calf was sighted in the Okavango Delta, he may have a greater chance of survival. He can seek refuge under the large trees and cake himself in a thick mud, which will protect him from the sun,” Dr Chase noted.

“Already the two-to-three-month-old calf seems to be walking in the shade of its mother. This behaviour suggests it is aware of its susceptibility to the harsh African sun, and adapted a unique behaviour to improve its chances of survival.”

Queen’s Speech sets out Coalition government’s final year agenda

Posted on March 18th, 2017

Friday, June 6, 2014

File:Queen Elizabeth II delivering 2013 Queen’s Speech.jpg

Queen Elizabeth II formally reopened Parliament on Wednesday and announced the legislative agenda of the UK government for the final year of the Coalition’s five year term. New measures introduced covered crime, the economy, energy and house building.

Contents

  • 1 Business and economy
  • 2 Crime and law
  • 3 Fracking
  • 4 Reaction
  • 5 Sources

The next year of legislative changes would, the speech claimed, “deliver on [the government’s] long-term plan to build a stronger economy and a fairer society”. On economics, it promised the government would continue to lower taxes, produce an updated Charter for Budget Responsibility to “ensure that future governments spend taxpayers’ money responsibly”, and continue reduction of the deficit.

On employment law, the Queen’s Speech announced reduction in employment tribunal delays and plans to try and “improve the fairness of contracts for low paid workers” — a response to “zero-hours” contracts. The Institute of Directors support reforms to zero-hours contracts, specifically by removing “exclusivity” clauses. The speech also announced the introduction of a “collective pension” system similar to schemes in use in the Netherlands.

The government is also to increase penalties on companies that do not pay employees minimum wage, and reform National Insurance contributions by self-employed people. The government also plans to extend the ISA and Premium Bond savings schemes and abolish the 10% tax rate on savings. The speech also promised more house building, and also to introduce legislation to reduce the use of plastic bags.

The speech announced the government would seek to pass a new Serious Crime Bill “to tackle child neglect, disrupt serious organised crime and strengthen powers to seize the proceeds of crime”. Another bill will be introduced to deal with modern slavery and human trafficking and to support victims of these offences. The speech also said the government “will lead efforts to prevent sexual violence in conflict worldwide”.

The Serious Crime Bill would also include an increase in the sentence for those who bring about “cyberattacks which result in loss of life, serious illness or injury or serious damage to national security, or a significant risk thereof”. Under the Computer Misuse Act 1990, these are currently subject to a ten year prison sentence, but the punishment would now risk imprisonment for life. Punishment for cyberattacks that cause “a significant risk of severe economic or environmental damage or social disruption” would increase from the current ten year maximum tariff to fourteen years.

Jim Killock from the Open Rights Group said existing laws already allow effective prosecution of those engaging in cyberattacks.

The speech also announced legislation would be introduced “to provide that where a person acts heroically, responsibly or for the benefit of others, this will be taken into account by the courts”.

Constituents would be able to “recall” an MP who had been found guilty of misconduct under a proposed law that will be debated. The Conservative MP Zac Goldsmith described the current plans as “meaningless” and said voters had been “duped”. The Bill would force a by-election if 10% of voters signed a petition within eight weeks, but only if a Commons committee had decided the MP could be recalled. This latter requirement will make it “impossible to recall anyone” according to Goldsmith.

Business minister Michael Fallon defended the recall proposals: “we have to protect MPs from being recalled by people who just disagree with them[…] What you have to ensure is an MP can’t be hounded out just because people disagree with them back in their constituency.”

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said he agreed with Goldsmith the bill was not perfect, and he wanted “a radical California-style recall” system, but he had settled for a “modest” bill to satisfy “Conservative Party resistance”. Goldsmith claimed Clegg had been “the architect of the current Recall Bill”.

Tim Aker, head of policy for the UK Independence Party, said: “The decision to only offer recall voting on a signed-off-by-Parliament-basis reflects a political class that does not know, does not trust and certainly does not represent its people.”

The speech included measures to make it easier for businesses to engage in hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) of shale gas. The Institute of Directors said laws “must be updated if the UK is to enjoy the benefits of our shale potential”, specifically by scrapping laws on trespass to allow the gas extraction to occur. The British Chamber of Commerce also support such a reform: “While fracking may be unpalatable to some, it is absolutely essential, and business will support legislative measures to exploit Britain’s shale gas deposits”. Activists from Greenpeace fenced off Prime Minister David Cameron’s home in Oxfordshire with a sign reading “We apologise for any inconvenience while we frack under your home”, and delivered a £50 cheque — identified as the maximum compensation suggested for property owners.

Simon Clydedale from Greenpeace UK said of the fracking proposals: “The prime minister is about to auction off over half of Britain to the frackers, including national parks and areas of outstanding natural beauty like the Cotswolds. Fracking won’t deliver energy on a meaningful scale for years, if ever, by which time we’ll need to have moved away from dirty fossil fuels and towards high-tech clean power if we’re to head off dangerous climate change.”

Caroline Lucas, Green Party MP, spoke in opposition to the fracking proposals after the Queen’s Speech: “Not only does this bill defy public opinion, it denies people a voice. To allow fracking companies to drill under people’s homes and land without their permission is to ignore public interest in pursuit of the vested interests of a few.” A poll conducted by YouGov found 74% of respondents opposed the plans.

Following the Queen’s Speech, politicians from all parties debated the direction of the government in the year ahead.

Prime Minister David Cameron said that the Queen’s Speech showcased “a packed programme of a busy and radical government”, whose “long-term economic plan is working but there is much, much more to do”, and it would “take the rest of this Parliament and the next to finish the task of turning our country around”.

Labour leader Ed Miliband said: “We would have a Queen’s Speech with legislation which would make work pay, reform our banks, freeze energy bills and build homes again in Britain. A Queen’s Speech which signals a new direction for Britain, not one which offers more of the same.”

Cameron described Miliband as having a “rag bag, pick-and-mix selection of statist Seventies ideas [… a] revival of Michael Foot’s policies paid for by Len McCluskey’s money” — a reference to controversies surrounding the substantial funding Labour gets from trade union Unite.

Liberal Democrat president Tim Farron said of the Queen’s Speech: “I suspect the pensions proposals will be around for a generation or more and will be remembered. It’s about making sure they are fairer, cheaper, more secure, more reliable and potentially better for people.”

Plaid Cymru MP Elfyn Llwyd said: “This was an uninspired Queen’s Speech delivered by a government that has well and truly run out of steam.”

Angus Robertson, the leader of the Scottish National Party in Westminster, said the Queen’s Speech barely mentioned Scotland: “The absence of any mention at all of the Westminster parties’ plans for Scotland in the Queen’s Speech is extraordinary. […] In this – the year of the biggest opportunity in Scotland’s history – Scotland hardly even gets a nod at Westminster, and not a single mention of future plans for improving government in Scotland.”

The speech made brief mention of Scotland: “My government will continue to implement new financial powers for the Scottish Parliament and make the case for Scotland to remain a part of the United Kingdom.”

Ways To Find Classy And Fashionable Comfortable Boots For Women

by

Tracy Narvaez

One of the best ways to find stylish comfortable boots for women is to find the brands that concentrate both on fashion and foot health. There are people who are capable of wearing high heels for hours without feeling pain while others can’t bare them for a moment. The fact that boots are now often made by designers who work for major sports wear brands means it’s become far easier to find a stylish, healthy boot.

Larger sports shoe manufacturers make use of various technologies to improve shock absorption in the sole and insets, allowing the joints and spine to remain pain free and healthy. Good insets will provide excellent arch support to keep the spine straight. Seek our insets that have soft support as well as quality soles of gum rubber or plastic. Synthetic rubber tends to wear down too quickly.

Round toes provide the kind of comfort that’s worth sacrificing a little style for. The toes should be able to move freely and there should be no pinching. Additional toe depth is occasionally provided by better designers but it’s extremely rare.

A boot is usually tighter than a shoe but this shouldn’t lead consumers to choose a boot that’s too small. The toes should still have enough room. The boot should fit more snugly around the heel area to keep the back straight and the foot supported.

The instep is an important area for a boot’s fit and should be fairly tight. This is a common failing in badly designed boots. They let the shoe fall right off the foot when it’s raised during walking. They also allow the foot to slip too deeply inside the shoe and the sole to drag across the ground.

Those with fuller calves sometimes find it impossible to find a boot that fits in this area. Ankle versions can usually be worn to solve the problem. High heels often feel snug enough when trying them on in the shop but hours of walking makes the ball of the foot hurt. Insets can be quite helpful if they’re extremely well made, but a sole that provides good shock absorption is the primary cure for this.

Some boot wearing problems can be fixed simply through the right socks. Cotton and wool socks move moisture away from the foot so that the skin is kept dry. They can also prevent smaller blisters and sores from occurring but ultimately, a major problem cannot be corrected this way.

Look out for any hard buckles and straps that can be felt through the boot. These might not cause pain on the initial try but often cause bruising and sores after an hour of walking. Similarly, the boot shouldn’t fold too deeply at the ankle as even these can cause pain after some time is spent wearing them.

When the instep is grasped and rubbed, there should be only a small wrinkle. A large one will indicate that the foot will slip too deeply into the boot. Any initial wearing of a boot will allow a certain amount of slipping but as the shoe is worn, this self-corrects. Seek out an instep that is neither too loose nor too tight. When selecting comfortable boots for women, laces can be chosen by those who need a more adjustable instep.
