Fall ’08 styles at New York Fashion Week: the miniskirt is back again

BKwHfBLM | Uncategorized | 04 6th, 2017  |  No Comments »

Sunday, February 3, 2008

The first two days of New York Fashion Week have debuted fashions similar to past years. Since Friday’s opening of what is the world’s largest fashion show, many designers have unveiled their newest designs. These include turtleneck sweaters and miniskirts. However, the ubiquitous fashion staple seen on the runway has been incorporated in designs that are even shorter than in past years.

Major labels Nicole Miller, Lacoste, BCBG, and Baby Phat debuted their styles in the first two days of the week-long extravaganza, nominally the official unveiling of the Fall 2008 styles and leading up to similar fashion shows in Los Angeles, London, Paris and Milan. If the first two days of Fashion Week are any indication, another year of miniskirts are in vogue, partnered with tights, which were widely expected to go out of fashion for 2008.

Day one kicked off with a Red Dress Campaign fashion show, aimed at educating people on the dangers of heart disease. Among the celebrities to walk in red gowns for the Red Dress fashion show were Rita Moreno and Liza Minnelli.

Talk of a budding recession in the United States has sparked fears in the couture world, in which a lackluster fashion season can make or break many designers, both up-and-comers and established names. New York designer Nanette Lepore has led the charge to save money by only debuting two different collections a year.

New York Fashion Week runs until Friday. Designers yet to unveil their fall lines include Oscar de la Renta, Anna Sui, Bill Blass, Michael Kors, Vera Wang, and Diane von Fürstenberg.

Tamil Nadu Elections: DMK, AIADMK promise freebies

BKwHfBLM | Uncategorized | 04 5th, 2017  |  No Comments »

Thursday, March 24, 2011

Both the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) and the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) parties have announce “freebies” as part of their election manifestos in the lead-up to the vote in the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Freebies have been a success from the 2006 Tamil Nadu elections when DMK lured voters by announcing free colour televisions to households. That triumph led the major opposition AIADMK to announce similar freebies in their manifesto published Thursday.

DMK has announced free laptops to college students, kitchen appliances and modern networks to rural regions. The AIADMK, publishing their manifesto later, expanded on each of the promises of the DMK, plus offering 4g gold mangalsutra for the poor, monetary help for rural households and fishermen, free rice, and more.

AIADMK manifesto addresses larger issues, such as taking on the near-monopoly of the cable industry television industry, starting new Power generation plants to address power shortages in recent years.

Fighting An Itchy Male Organ In The Winter}

BKwHfBLM | Real Estate | 04 3rd, 2017  |  No Comments »

Submitted by: J Dugan

Some things are seasonal, others arent and an itchy male organ is a pest for all seasons. That said, there is definitely some seasonal variation in the cause of an itchy male organ. There are factors associated with winter that can make a difference in male organ health and the itch that all men experience at some point.

Many causes

As is well known, an itchy male organ can be the result of many things, including jock itch, allergic reaction, scabies and other readily-identifiable causes. But often the itch simply results from a temporary irritant or environmental conditions that cause the skin to dry or become otherwise itch-prone.

The latter is often more frequently at work in winter than it is at other times of the year. To understand why, its necessary to look at the situations which cause dry, itchy skin in general during the winter.

Winter

YouTube Preview Image

Whats the defining characteristic of winter? Cold weather (although what constitutes cold weather on a tropical island is very different than what constitutes the same in northern Alaska). And when the temperature drops, conditions change both indoors and outdoors such that dry, itchy skin may develop.

Outside

Outside, cold weather is often accompanied by harsh winter winds. Exposed skin takes the brunt of it, but truly arctic blasts can cut through clothing and affect skin all over the body. When that wind strikes, it creates a windburn situation that dries out the much-needed natural moisturizing skin oils.

But theres another effect as well. People have to bundle up to withstand the frigid air. But often the outside wind chill shifts dramatically, so a man may experience periods of both extreme cold and not-so-extreme cold. And in the latter phases, being bundled up may make the body overheat, creating sweat. And often sweat serves to also deplete the bodys natural moisturizing oils.

Inside

Ah, but indoors, things are nice and cozy and climate-controlled, right? Not necessarily. Indoor heat often creates a dry, low-humidity situation and that sucks the moisture right out of the skin as well.

These winter factors which bring about dry, itchy skin in general can also bring about an itch specifically on the member.

What to do

So what can a man do to keep an itchy male organ at bay in winter?

Hydration is the key here. Dry skin is an invitation to the itch factor, so find ways to keep the body moisturized. For overall body skin hydration, it makes sense to go with the obvious: drink plenty of water. If moisture is being pulled out of the body, put some of it back in. Too many adults do not get enough fluids anyway and some of what they consider fluids arent helpful hydrators. Caffeinated drinks (coffee, tea, soda), for example, tend to have a somewhat de-hydrating effect.

It also pays to remember that liquids arent the only recourse for hydration. Increasing the consumption of many fruits and some vegetables is another good way to add water to the body.

And as for the itchy male organ itself? What winter tips can be offered for it specifically? It can be very helpful to make application of a top drawer manhood health crme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) a part of a mans daily health routine. Helping manhood skin get rehydrated can relieve the itch, so a crme needs to have double-barreled moisturizing agents such as Shea butter and vitamin E. Working together, these two create a moisture seal that helps rehydrate and lock in that hydration. It also pays to use a creme with a potent antioxidant, such as alpha lipoic acid, which can add a back-up weapon to protect male organ cells and keep them healthy rather than itchy.

U.S. President Obama’s farewell address focuses on accomplishment

BKwHfBLM | Uncategorized | 04 3rd, 2017  |  No Comments »

Thursday, January 12, 2017

United States President Barack Obama gave his official farewell address on Tuesday night from McCormick Place in Chicago, reflecting on personal and national accomplishments. This is expected to be his last major speech before officially handing the reins to president-elect Donald Trump on January 20.

“Its why GIs gave their lives at Omaha Beach and Iwo Jima; Iraq and Afghanistan – and why men and women from Selma to Stonewall were prepared to give theirs as well.”

Obama’s speech was wide-ranging. He thanked his family and the nation, spoke of the need for unity, noted the country’s accomplishments and need for improvement in areas like education and civil rights, and spoke about the need for pride in U.S. accomplishments, citing milestones of U.S. history and of his presidency specifically. “It’s why GIs gave their lives at Omaha Beach and Iwo Jima; Iraq and Afghanistan – and why men and women from Selma to Stonewall were prepared to give theirs as well.”

The president also addressed his country’s troubled history with race and racism, an issue many black citizens feel he has avoided. Despite this, Chauncy Devega of Salon described the president as “a role model of calm, cool reflective black masculinity: a man utterly at home in his own skin.” Obama described the concept of a post-racial U.S. “unrealistic” and particularly cited the need for reform in education and the criminal justice system and greater acceptance of scientific evidence, particularly evidence supporting action to counteract climate change.

However, publications including The Washington Post and Salon have given particular focus to another aspect of the president’s address: the country’s increasing political tensions and controversies involving access to news and information, both accurate and inaccurate. “We become so secure and our bubbles,” said Obama, “that we start accepting only information, whether it’s true or not, that fits our opinions instead of basing our opinions on the evidence that is out there,” calling this trend “a third threat to our democracy.”

The Washington Post characterized Obama’s comment, “If every economic issue is framed as a struggle between a hard-working white middle class and an undeserving minority, then workers of all shades will be left fighting for scraps while the wealthy withdraw further into their private enclaves,” as a “not-so-subtle jab” at the campaign tactics of President-elect Donald Trump. The Telegraph describes Obama’s warnings about the need to protect democracy as “a thinly veiled slight to the divisive rhetoric of Donald Trump’s election campaign, which included attacks on Muslims, the disabled, women and immigrants.” The president went on to call on the public to “reject the first dawning of every attempt to alienate any portion of our country from the rest or to enfeeble the sacred ties that make us one America. We weaken those ties when we allow our political dialogue to become so corrosive […] We weaken those ties when we define some of us as more American than others when we write off the whole system as inevitably corrupt and when we sit back and blame the leaders we elect without examining our own role in electing them. It falls to each of us to be those anxious, jealous guardians of our democracy.”

Despite this, when the mention of Donald Trump brought boos from the crowd, Obama reiterated the importance of the long history of peaceful transfers of power from one president to the next: “No no no no no. […] I committed to President-elect Trump that my administration would ensure the smoothest possible transition, just as President Bush did for me.” However, this was not unaccompanied by a call to action. Near the end of the speech, he insisted citizens dissatisfied with elected officials should “lace up your shoes, grab a clipboard, get some signatures and run for office yourself.”

Overall, the departing president’s speech focused on accomplishment, echoing the “Yes we can” slogan from his 2008 campaign: “If I have told you eight years ago, that America would reverse a great recession, reboot our auto industry, and unleash the longest stretch of job creation in our history. If I had told you, that we would open up a new chapter with the Cuban people, shut down Iran’s nuclear weapons program without firing a shot, take out the mastermind of 9/11[…] If I had told you that we would win a marriage equality and secure the right to health insurance for another twenty million of our fellow citizens. If I had told you all that, you might have said our sights were set a little too high. But that’s what we did.”

But when the crowd began shouting “Four more years! Four more years!” Obama, with a small laugh, answered, “I can’t do that.”

UK Secretary of State for International Development and deputy Labour leadership candidate Hilary Benn, has criticised US President George W. Bush’s ‘war on terror‘ concept in a speech given to the Center on International Cooperation, a US think tank.

Benn’s speech argued that the phrase ‘war on terror’ should be deprecated because it can’t be won by military means alone as well as indicating that the ‘war-on-terror’ concept may have actually assisted terrorist groups by giving them a sense of belonging.

Six ministers in radical cleric Muqtada al-Sadr‘s Sadrist Movement have resigned from the Iraqi government, because Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki did not push for a timetable for the withdrawal of foreign troops from the country.

At a press conference, the head of Sadr’s parliamentary bloc Nassar Rubaie, read a statement from al-Sadr:”Considering the public interest, we found that it was necessary to issue an order to the ministers of the Sadr bloc to immediately withdraw from the Iraqi government,” The statement continued, “The six ministries shall be handed over to the government itself, hoping that this government would give these responsibilities to independent bodies who wish to serve the interests of the people and the country.”

Al-Maliki was happy the Sadrists respected the political process. The move could have threatened to topple his government, but so far the Sadrist Movement is still part of the ruling coalition.

Secretary of State for Trade and Industry Alistair Darling said that some MPs have called for the scrapping of Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). His statement came as a survey of 145 firms found that only 8% saw the DTI playing an important role. He has, however, said that DTI needed to continue for nuclear decommissioning.

A survey of British by the British Chamber of Commerce (BCC) found that British companies feel it more difficult to start and grow a business today than ten years ago. On a positive note, of the top 750 European companies, UK companies generated a third of total profits.

No More Loans: Use The Debt Pay Off Calculator To Know How To Erase Your Debt

BKwHfBLM | Financial Services | 04 3rd, 2017  |  No Comments »

By Sean Goudelock

Even if it seems like you cannot keep tabs on the amount of money you owe your lenders, you have to take the time to sit down and go through each one of your loan accounts to know exactly how much you need to pay off your debt. Ideally, you would want to have a personal financial advisor to work with you on sorting everything out. Not everybody, however, has the resources to pay for the services of such a professional. It is a good thing that there are a lot of resources in the internet nowadays. You can make use of tools like a debt pay off calculator to help you figure out how much you need to get out of your indebtedness possibly through a consolidated loan or through any other viable debt remedy available.

Before you can use a debt pay off calculator, make sure you have all the details of all your loan accounts – missing out on one loan account could surprise you with an inflated loan amount that could jeopardize your efforts at cleaning up your finances with a solution like a loan consolidation. Difficult as it may seem, try and focus on putting everything out on the table so that you can find the most viable solution to your growing debt. It is almost certain that things will be financially difficult at first but with some changes on how you manage your funds and some sacrifices on your spending pleasure, you will soon see your loans get paid off one by one. Acknowledge your debt problem, know exactly what you need to do, and then implement your debt pay off plan to get right on track towards a debt-free life.

Aside from a debt pay off calculator, you can find that there are articles and forums online that could give you information and tips as to how you can make some sense out of your seemingly hopeless financial dilemma. Step out of your hopelessness and you will find that there is a solution that you can work on if you only commit to doing whatever it requires. Depending on the kind of financial situation you are in, you can find similar scenarios tackled in various online resources on which you can pattern your own debt solution. If paying off your loans is not financially feasible just yet, you can turn to loan consolidation to stop your loans from growing even more in interest by putting them all together in one consolidated loan. Although you will still be charged interest for the entire balance of your new loan and you will likely to be paying for your loan over a longer period of time, managing your monthly repayments for your consolidated loan should be easier and more convenient with only one set of conditions for you to remember. Once you have figured out what debt solution would work best for you, make sure that you commit to seeing your plan to the end, avoiding any more mishaps by practicing sound money management no matter how big or small your income is.
