          Comment on “What” would you sell your gold for? by Michael Sever      Cache   Translate Page      
Hey Bill -good logical stuff as usual. I especially like the last paragraph of thought re: only selling the PMs for something real and of desire, whatever that may be when that time comes. I am fully invested in Silver, stacking it until it blasts off again...and yes, taking some profit along the way to purchase whatever is real at the time; real estate again, diamonds, collectible cars, etc..?? I realize that the dollar will be doomed just like other historical currencies, so I plan to take that profit in dollars and immediately trade them for something of real value. Hell, I'm goin' on 70 and am patiently waiting for Silver to spike to have some well-deserved profit. Yep, contrary to Miles Franklin comments and others who continue to state that Gold and Silver are for insurance purposes, and not for investments, I'm in it for the rewards!

An excellent video, thanks! I'm glad to know about the other methods of handling possible problems, down the line. I'm diligent about fixing everything that's found on my initial inspection when I purchase a flip, and don't cut corners. Strangely, I've had offers from people who for some reason, didn't check off the Home Warranty box when placing an offer! I've had my realtor correct that, since it's cheap protection for both me the seller, and the buyer. So far, so good. I just sold my last flip last Monday, and am looking for the next one...
           Comment on How to Use a HELOC to Buy Real Estate by Geoff Chan       Cache   Translate Page      
Thanks all for sharing about HELOCs. I, too, am interested in acquiring a HELOC, but don't fully understand the implications when it comes time to refinancing a deal and paying off the HELOC. Scenario: HELOC 100K and $50K Cash Purchase Price $120K Renovation: $30K ARV: 200K When it comes time to refinance the property to pull all the initial investment out to redeploy the HELOC and Cash, it would seem I could do it since the refinance would be 75% LTV. But, wouldn't it be difficult to get a loan because of my debt-to-income with the HELOC payments taken into account? It would seem like lenders would be hesitant to refinance the property and lend more money on top of the 100K HELOC debt. I see that people keep referring to HELOCs similar to credit cards or 2nd Mortgages. If I only use 50K of the 100K, would lenders typically consider that all 100k has been leveraged regardless of how much was actually used?
           Comment on House Hacking 101: How to “Hack” Your Housing and Get Paid to Live for Free by Daniel Hughes       Cache   Translate Page      
Hey John P. It's not a 19% cap. Here's why: Assuming 3 units rented, $800/unit, $180,000 purchase price: Gross Income = ($800 * 3) * 12 = $28,800 NOI (using 50% rule) = $28,800/2 = $14,400 Cap Rate = NOI / Purchase Price Cap Rate = $14,400 / $180,000 = 0.08 Cap Rate = 8.0% ** But that's not the full story. Assuming you are going to move out of the property in the future, you'll rent the 4th unit. So let's calculate the true cap rate: Gross Income = ($800 * 4) * 12 = $38,400 NOI = $38,400 / 2 = $19,200 Cap Rate = $19,200 / $180,000 = 0.107 Cap Rate = 10.7% ** In the example, the investor used debt on the property, so cap rate isn't as useful. You'll want to calculate the Cash on Cash (CoC) return. Assuming 3 rented units (you live in 4th) at $800/mo, $180,000 purchase price: Loan Info Down Payment (16.7%): $30,000 Principal = $150,000 Interest Rate: 4% fixed Term: 30 years Debt Service: about $700/mo NOI = Gross Income / 2 = ($800 * 3) * 12 / 2 NOI = $14,400 CADS (Cash After Debt Service) = NOI - Debt Service CADS = $14,400 - ($700 * 12) CADS = $6,000 CoC = Cash After Debt Service (CADS) / Initial Investment No repairs in this case and ignoring closing costs and any extra loan fees for simplicity, so Initial Investment = Down Payment. CoC = $6,000 / $30,000 = 0.2 CoC = 20% (great!)

Hi
I purchased a copy of ‘Ultimate Product Catalogue’ and added it to WordPress, but didn’t do anything to it as I had other domestic problems to sought out. When I came back to WordPress I wasn’t happy with the domain name for the catalogue and wanted to change it to another domain name I had in Namecheap.

But WordPress said I had to delete the ”universalmediadistribution.com’ domain and then put up ‘micromartuk.com in its place. Well thats not a problem. But I’ve already entered the serial number into Ultimate Product Catalogue’ on the universalmediadistribution.com site, so when I tried to do the same for the micromartuk.com site it says

That key has already been used for: https://universalmediadistribution.com. Please contact the plugin author to release the key for a new site.

If you goto https://universalmediadistribution.com you’ll see there’s nothing been done to the site at all.
I don’t want to have to purchase another licence when I haven’t even done anything to the one I all ready have.

Some help here would be great.

Thank you.


          The Music Behind the Harryhausen Movies      Cache   Translate Page      
Selenite-blogging, essay 4 of 5 blog entries
on First Men in the Moon (1964)

Part One: A Salute to Laurie Johnson

The great movie composers inevitably seem to get associated with one particular score—the one that would play behind them when they accept a Lifetime Achievement Award or receive an MBE from the Queen.

For Max Steiner, it would be Gone With the Wind (1939).  For Victor Young, The Quiet Man(1952).  For Bernard Herrmann, Psycho (1960).

Composer of the wonderful score of First Men in the Moon (1964), Laurie Johnson is forever tagged as the composer of The Avengers TV theme, the music that must have played behind him when he was awarded the MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) for his services to music in 2014.  It’s one of the great TV themes.


But there’s much more to Laurie Johnson than just The Avengers, case in point being his very fine score for First Men in the Moon.  As the film moves from Victoriana to the weirdness of life insider the moon’s caverns, the music grows increasingly strange.  In this first clip, the Selenites are introduced with a blast of dissonance which drops into a syncopation at the 26 second mark, effectively suggesting the movement of the Selenites along the cave passageways.  Then a piercing high-pitched Selenite theme abruptly appears, eerily meshing keyboard with strings.  Staccato brass echo the melody.  From this point, whenever the Selenites approach, the theme returns.


Surprisingly, First Men in the Moon only contains one traditional Harryhausen monster scene.  The giant mooncalf provides this one opportunity for a chase and attack.  Naturally, the mooncalf gets his own theme, both ponderous and relentless, echoing the beast’s size and threat.


In one of the film’s most visually opulent scenes, designed by Harryhausen to suggest the magnificent sets of She (1935) and A Matter of Life and Death (1945), the scientist Joseph Cavor mounts a seemingly endless staircase that leads upward toward the throne of the Selenite ruler, the Grand Lunar.  In this clip, Johnson’s staircase theme begins at 1:26, striking an almost religious note that appropriately reflects the look of awe on Cavor’s face.


Now 88 years old, Laurie Johnson is one of the few members of the First Men in the Moon crew still with us.  Over the years, he has scored more than 400 films and television episodes.  Classically trained, he enjoyed adding experimental new sounds (like the synthesized Selenite theme) to traditional orchestral arrangements.  You can hear his adventurousness in First Men in the Moon as he moves from Gustav Holst-style themes for Victorian England to a discreet background of electronica ever-murmuring behind the Selenites.  It’s a magnificent piece of work.


Part Two:  My Three Favorite Scores to Harryhausen Movies

Captain Nemo (Herbert Lom) at the organ in Mysterious Island (1961).

Considering how the Charles Schneer/Ray Harryhausen movies tend to coast on second-tier directors and actors, I’m always amazed that they so often invested in the very finest music composers.  In return, Schneer and Harryhausen received scores that amplified the production values and technical effects, making the evocation of their fantasy worlds both more believable and dramatic.  A great score helps a lot!

For my three favorites scores to Harryhausen movies, it may appear that I’m picking one score apiece from three composers in order to avoid simply picking three Bernard Herrmann scores.  After all, Herrmann’s musical reputation is stellar and ever-growing, and I have four excellent Herrmann scores to choose from (The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad, The Three Worlds of Gulliver, Mysterious Island, and Jason and the Argonauts).  Also, I could be criticized for leaving out a fourth major composer—Miklos Rosza—who worked on the Harryhausen movie The Golden Voyage of Sinbad.  But my selections really are my personal three favorites—the other Herrmann-scored movies would be in fourth through sixth place and, as for the Rosza score, I think it’s far from his best.

My favorite of the Bernard Herrmann scores is his wonderfully varied work on Mysterious Island.  It’s got swirling hurricane-evoking action music to launch the adventure, a set of moody quiet themes for the mysterious island, and quirky set pieces for each of the monsters.  This selection—Elena/The Shadow/The Bird—begins with a delicate character piece for the young heroine, followed by some very Vertigo-esque forebodings, then (best of all) simultaneously comic and threatening music to accompany the attack of a giant flightless bird.


The film composer Jerome Moross is justifiably most famous for his classic western score to The Big Country (1958).  But—perhaps because I heard it first—my heart belongs to his music for The Valley of Gwangi, Harryhausen’s grand dino-western.  This clip begins with introductory themes and then hits its stride at the 1:20 mark with one of the finest of all expansive western melodies.  It’s everything I want a western score to be.


And third favorite?  Why that’s First Men in the Moon, of course!  Composer Laurie Johnson, a friend and occasional assistant to Bernard Herrmann, seized the opportunity to do his own variation on a Herrmann-type score and he did the master proud.

          Thomas Merton and a Hedgehog on the Hero's Journey      Cache   Translate Page      

Trappist Blogging
in Honor of Thomas Merton's
100th Birthday:
Essay 5 of 6 on
"Fire Watch, July 4, 1952,"
the epilogue of 
The Sign of Jonas




Part One:  Fear of the Dark
In Yuri Norstein's enchanting animated short
Hedgehog in the Fog (1975), our hero ventures
into the fog drawn by a beautiful vision.  It is
a classic hero story, where the hero embarks
on a quest that leads to deeper self-knowledge.
Hedgehog in the Fog shares much in common
with Thomas Merton's "Fire Watch," where
Merton's solitary trek through the monastery
 leads to revelation.

Defying traditional expectations, Thomas Merton depicts the dark as spiritually good.  This is in the nature of a paradigm shift—and it’s not easy to cause a shift in anything as hidebound as a 2,000- year-old religion anchored to a set of ancient sacred texts.

In the very first paragraph of “Fire Watch, July 4, 1952,” Merton writes:

“You (God) have seen the morning and the night, and the night was better.”

Merton’s God blesses the darkness.  This is a concept that would seem to fly in the face of much scripture:

The hero's journey continues.
Top frame: The hedgehog sees a beautiful
vision of a white horse in the fog.  Middle
frame:  Unseen by the hedgehog, the horse
sniffs a leaf that that the hedgehog has
dropped.  Bottom frame:  Safely home, the
hedgehog is haunted by the vision of
the horse.  In "Fire Watch," Merton
pursues an unattainable intimacy,
yearning to receive answers from God
to his existential questions.
“And God said, ‘Let there be light’; and there was light.  And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness.”  (Note:  Light good, dark bad.)
Genesis 1:3-4

“So Moses stretched out his hand toward heaven, and there was thick darkness in all the landof Egypt three days… but all the people of Israelhad light where they dwelt.”  (Note:  Light good, dark bad.)
Exodus 10:22-23

“The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shined.”  (Note:  Light good, dark bad.)
Isaiah 9:2

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”  (Note:  Light good, dark bad.)
John 1:5

“Let us then cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light.”  (Note:  Light good, dark bad.)
Romans 13:12

While positive passages about darkness exist in the Bible, they are few and far between.  Negative views of darkness overwhelmingly predominate.

The hero's journey continues.
Wandering lost in the fog, hoping to see the
horse again, the hedgehog is frightened by
mysterious beasts of the night:  an owl, a
bat, and an elephant, dimly seen.  As he
wanders through the monastery at night,
Merton evokes a haunted house:  "Shadows
move everywhere... There are faint sounds
in the darkness, the empty choirstalls creak
and hidden boards mysteriously sigh."
But Merton saw through this darkness surrounding darkness to realize that the light-dark dichotomy was always intended as metaphor, and that sometimes metaphors must change with the times.  Darkness served as a favorite image in ancient times because it was universally known and feared.  Our contemporary fears of darkness are much milder by comparison.  If fear begins to seize us, we can simply flick on a light switch, performing our own, “Let there be light.”

When the books of the Bible were written, intense anxieties about the night, the darkness, and the wilderness were very real and reasonable. Communities banded close together to protect themselves from the dangers that lurked outside.  Assurances of safety dissolved when the sun sank below the horizon. The civilized space contracted.  People gathered together within known, familiar spaces... and they barred the doors.  The wilderness outside the city walls, home to dangerous animals and bandits, advanced closer in the darkness.  Any venture out into the dark carried considerable risk.  Better to wait inside for the night to pass and a new day to dawn.

A twentieth century man living in the first full century of electric illumination, Thomas Merton was open to finding new metaphors to express the old truths.  For him, the night was simply an unexplored space—like the terra incognita at the edge of an old map.  With less to fear, he was more aware that God was fully present in the dark, blessing the night just as he blessed the day.

At the close of “Fire Watch,” Merton prophetically speaks for God:

The Voice of God is heard in Paradise:
“What was vile has become precious.  What is now precious was never vile.  I have always known the vile as precious for what is vile I know not at all.”
“Fire Watch, July 4, 1952”
Thomas Merton

In the new metaphor, there’s nothing to fear in the dark.  The night assumes a new dignity, now recognized as precious before God.

The hero's journey continues.
Despite his fears, the hedgehog ultimately finds only kindness and
compassion in the fog.  Left: A dog (with very scary jaws) returns the
hedgehog's lost bag to him.  Right: When the hedgehog falls into a
stream, a fish offers him a ride back to safety.  In "Fire Watch,"
Merton writes that the animals in the wilderness outside the monastery
are misunderstood.  "That is why some people act as if the night and the
forest and the heat and the animals had in them something of contagion,
whereas the heat is holy and the animals are the children of God..."

The hero's journey at its most sublime.
Perhaps the most beautiful of all the images in Hedgehog in the Fog,
the hedgehog uses a firefly to light his way as he moves forward
through a cathedral of trees.  The world appears sacred.  In "Fire Watch,"
Thomas Merton writes:  "Now the huge chorus of living beings rises up
out of the world beneath my feet:  life singing in the watercourses,
throbbing in the creeks and the fields and the trees, choirs of millions
and millions of jumping and flying and creeping things.  And far above
me the cool sky opens upon the frozen distance of the stars."

Really? Has it been that long since I have blogged? That has to be my biggest hiatus ever! It has been at the back of my mind forever but I have just never got around to it. So I am sure this post (and a couple following) will be a "catch-up" with lots of pics and few words and then hopefully I can get back into the swing of things and start blogging more frequently.

Aaron and I have been running together, and no you didn't read that wrong. We have a jogging stroller and so we pack Bennett up, even in the cold weather, and head out for a couple miles! Go me!
The pictures below we will call "Sunday Selfies". Bennett didn't want to take too many pictures but when he saw himself in the camera he couldn't resist. His expressions kill me!
We met some amazing friends when we lived in Bountiful, they were the Terry's. Aaron worked with Nick in Primary and I worked with Carrie in Visiting Teaching. They have a daughter named Natalie and then a boy named Chase who was only 2 weeks older than Bennett. We went over to their house and had a play date in their backyard. Bennett loved the trampoline and the playset and swings. It is so fun to have friends to play with!
Bennett's hair grows so fast and he has had 3 majorly needed haircuts! Look at that mullet!
Bennett loves to help Grandma clean...aka mess up the floors when she is "raking" them to keep her living room looking nice.
Aaron took the front runner train to and from school everyday when we lived in Bountiful. Sometimes he would drive himself and park the car but sometimes we would drive him and pick him up. Here is Bennett reading a book in the back, waiting for dad's train to come.
Grandma's house had lots of fun toys to play with, including some fake phones. He is already learning to text and call some of his favorite people.
We love overalls! He looks like a little version of his dad and looks like he could join him up at the farm this summer. 
We made quite a few trips to Provo this Winter Semester for doctors appointments for Bennett and so we would visit Carlie at work and Bennett loved seeing her...and the vending machines. 
For conference we went up to the cabin in Wallsburg and Bennett loved visiting all the animals. We set up an area upstairs to watch it where he could play with all the toys and we could (try) to listen to conference.
We also explored all the cool toys they had on the farm including the tractors and the gator.
We loved when the weather started to turn warmer. Bennett was still crawling at Grandmas and so going outside was a little hard because he determined to ruin his clothes! But he loves dirt, grass and sunshine.
Bennett has 2 blankies that he LOVES! He has to have them when he goes to sleep and he holds them up when you come get him out of his crib to bring with you. This was after I washed his blankies and they were clean and warm.
We were lucky to get to spend time with family in Bountiful and this was one time when my Aunt and Uncle took Bennett, Grandma and I out to lunch.
Remember how I said earlier that Bennett loves being outside and loves dirt. After one hard day with Bennett we headed outside and I let him do whatever he wanted, which included playing in the dirt.
This past semester Aaron got himself involved in what is call BYU Student Alumni. He got put in charge of an event that went extremely well. He then decided to apply to be on the board. They have one president and then about 6 vice presidents who are in charge of different things. Aaron was lucky enough to apply, interview and get accepted onto this pretty prestigious board. He is the Vice President of Communications. Student Alumni does a lot of fun events on campus which include "take a cougar to lunch", "etiquette dinner", "food drive", "traditions ball", "senior celebration"...the list goes on. The cool thing is Aaron gets a full ride scholarship for doing this! Booyah! Also, though he officially doesn't start until next semester we were able to attend the BYU Traditions Ball to get a feel for everything. We dressed up, help take some pictures and enjoyed the live band and food. I can't wait to attend the other events next year!
Bennett is so funny and loves dressing up, karaoke and giving back pats to us.
Also, our door into our room at Grandma's didn't have a handle and so Bennett loved hiding himself in our room because he could get himself out by putting his fingers in the hole and pulling.
Bennett know what he wants at the store and snuck some Reese's into our cart.
One of our last nights in Bountiful we were all able to go out on a date and we went to Pei Wei. Bennett loved the fortune cookies and I think he ate more of my plate than he did.
We then went to one of our favorite places EVER! It is the Station Park in Farmington. From the music dancing fountain to the beautiful outside area to walk around and the great shops, it is so fun! The weather was perfect that night and so was the company!
We have taken Bennett to the doctor a lot in the past couple months. He has had fluid in his ears and so we have had to go in and have them checked every couple of weeks to see if it improves. He got an ear infection and was on antibiotics for a while. We then talked with some people who said to take him off dairy for a little bit because its been shown to help with fluid in the ears. We did it and it was hard and then we went to the doctor Bennett and lost enough weight that it was concerning. We had to do a blood test to see if he had diabetes or any other problems. It was so hard to hold him down and get his blood drawn. He hated it. Then we had to bring him back in the next week to have him weighed again, back on dairy. Thankfully he had gained weight but his blood showed that the creatine levels in his kidneys was high. So we had to come back in a couple weeks and have his blood levels tested again and we also had to do a urine test and wait for Bennett to urinate until we could leave. Thankfully all the results came back and his levels had normalized and so we were all good!
We then had to take Bennett to the hospital to have a hearing screening. Thankfully the fluid in his ears cleared out by itself and so now hopefully his language will improve and his communication will grow now that he can hear more clearly.

And...back to Bennett's crazy hair and in need of a haircut.
Thankfully his dad gave him one just a couple days later :)

Genre: Romantic Comedy/Adult Contemporary
Release Date: March 12, 2019



Blurb

There’s a fine line between lust and hate.

I don’t care that Drew Merritt spent the last year transforming himself from grungy slob to sexy playboy. With messy, dirty blond hair and gorgeous eyes, his looks aren’t the problem.

His mouth is.

And the stupid things that come out of it.

But after an emergency strands us together, and he does his damnedest to take care of me… 

Let’s just say there’s one thing we don’t clash on.

And it doesn’t involve talking.

I’ve despised Drew since I met him years ago. One weekend can’t change us that much, can it?

Spoiler alert: It doesn’t.

Except he left me a little keepsake.

And in nine months, I’ll have a surprise for Portland’s most notorious player.

Omg why have I not read Lex Martin and Leslie McAdam’s co written books before now, after reading the brilliant Surprise Baby I can’t believe they haven’t crossed my radar up until now. 
Im not  going to write a review that’s full of spoilers because I believe you need to pick this book up with no expectations you need to read the antics of Drew and Kendall first hand like I did and I know you will love this must read witty, funny, romantic package. 
An independent business woman and a reformed party animal with friends who know them better than they know themselves leads to all sorts surprises, this book has all the feels you want and need in a great read. I laughed, I swooned and at times I sighed but most importantly I loved watching these characters grow as their story unfolds, I loved the loyalty that this group of friends share and what about the sizzling chemistry wow that was seriously off the charts. All in all a great read that I would recommend to any romance lover. Can’t wait to read more from this very talented duo.




Why have I not Lex Martin Or Leslie McAdams before because I have to say that there was  nothing that I did not love about this book? If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of reading these two authors writing together, then do yourself a favour and check them out. I love frenemies to lovers stories and Surprise Baby ticked all the boxes for me. This was a fun, flirty, seriously romantic story that engaged me from the start. It also had it’s serious moments and Lex Martin and Leslie McAdams handle both the fun and the serious with equal amounts of skill.Drew is a reformed party boy, who literally had no choice but to drastically change his lifestyle overnight or suffer the consequences. Whilst Kendall is an accomplished business woman with her own company. They both rub each other up the wrong way constantly; all the while being secretly attracted to each other. When circumstances bring these two together you just know that sparks are going to explode and there may well be fireworks.This is a book that you need to read for yourselves, I’m not going to say anymore for fear of spoiling your enjoyment. All I will say is that the writing was exceptional and I loved this book.





Surprise, Baby is a fun, sweet romantic comedy and I enjoyed every minute of it! 
The characters are fun, the writing is fantastic and the circumstances they find themselves in keep the story entertaining! 
The history between Kendall and Drew has been complicated for sure, in that ‘I don’t really like you’ kind of way, but there is a fine line between love and hate as they will soon discover. Kendall sees Drew as an immature man whore and he sees her as a bit stuck up. People do change, however and sometimes perceptions are wrong, but life is unpredictable and is full of surprises for Kendall and Drew. They are definitely in for an interesting ride!

          Metro nonprofit raising funds for shelter to serve sex trafficking victims      Cache   Translate Page      

By Josh Dulaney
Staff writer jdulaney@oklahoman.com

A metro nonprofit that serves victims of human trafficking has launched a fundraising campaign to open a 24-hour shelter for those abused by the sex trade.

The state-certified Dragonfly Home is looking to raise $350,000 to purchase a property and operate as the only such shelter in the Oklahoma City area.

Since earning certification from the Victim Services Unit at the Oklahoma Attorney General's Office in 2016, the Dragonfly Home has served more than 250 victims of human trafficking through its non-residential program.

The nonprofit has fielded more than 2,500 calls to its 24-hour helpline during the same period.

While some sex-trafficking victims don’t need shelter, the Dragonfly Home has driven others more than 1,000 miles to find long-term safety, said Whitney Anderson, co-founder and executive director.

“So often we get hotline calls from survivors of sex trafficking who are needing emergency shelter,” she said.

A conflict over two of the city’s historic African-American cemeteries threatens to undermine restoration efforts.

For Veronica Davis, the nonprofit acquisition of two historic African-American cemeteries was the realization of a dream she'd nurtured for 20 years.

Davis, a Hampton resident, is a historian who first came to Evergreen Cemetery in Richmond's East End in 1999, when she was president of the Maggie Walker Foundation. Shocked by signs of neglect and dense overgrowth at the burial site of the banking and civic leader, Davis began clearing brush, leading cemetery tours and seeking allies to help restore historic African-American cemeteries across the state. Her hope all along has been to see the sites take on a national role similar to that of Arlington National Cemetery, becoming destinations for visitors and a place of comfort to descendants of the thousands buried there.

Davis says the Enrichmond Foundation, the nonprofit that bought Evergreen from Isaiah Entzminger in 2017 and is set to acquire the adjacent East End Cemetery, is the right steward for this sacred land. Although personal problems and health issues sidelined Davis from active work several years ago, she says Enrichmond reached out to her early in the process, even sending someone down to visit her in Hampton. When she finally met John Sydnor, the executive director of Enrichmond, after weeks talking over the phone, she says, "I gave him a hug, and I have to be honest with you, in that moment I started crying, because here is a dream that is being realized."

Although Davis and others welcome the acquisition, it hasn't been without controversy.

These segregated cemeteries are the final resting places of such prominent Richmonders as Walker, journalist John Mitchell Jr., the Rev. John Andrew Bowler and tens of thousands of everyday people. Under Jim Crow and the disenfranchisement of African-Americans following Reconstruction, [many of African-American cemeteries] were defunded and abandoned while tax dollars flowed into Confederate memorials and burial grounds like Hollywood Cemetery, segregated in Richmond until 1970.

Over the decades, regular maintenance fell to family members and volunteer groups. The history behind these restoration efforts is as twisted and gnarled as the tree roots snaking between graves. That twisted history may help explain some of the controversy that's arisen.

From the perspective of Brian Palmer, a journalist who moved to Richmond while working on a documentary about his own hidden family roots, the acquisition was a behind-closed-doors deal between the Commonwealth of Virginia and a private entity, and he worries that it's a repeat of the institutional failures that first left these sites in disarray.

"We have the actual giving away of a historic and sacred black site," Palmer says, asking how Enrichmond can guarantee that it will maintain the site in perpetuity. He describes a recent grant of $400,000 through the Virginia Outdoors Foundation as a cash transfer to a nonprofit he thinks is too small and too inexperienced to handle the work.

"Couldn't the state have done something different in the 21st century?" he asks.

Although he says the funding is a smaller issue, Palmer is concerned that the sites are being "treated as commodities, not community assets."

Due to legislation passed in 2017, each cemetery receives state funding similar to the funding Confederate gravesites have long received. The bill provides $5 per grave of any African-American who lived between 1800 and 1900. As reported in the Richmond Free Press in February 2017, there are 6,975 such graves in East End and Evergreen, bringing the total annual funding to $34,875. According to a Freedom of Information Act request Palmer filed with the Department of Historic Resources, Enrichmond has already received $10,500 through this.

Palmer's a newer arrival to Richmond, but he has deep ties to the cemetery and the region. While researching his family, he discovered they'd lived in Magruder, a historic African-American community that was displaced by the U.S. Army. That led him to the grave of his great-grandfather, Matthew Palmer, who was buried in East End. With his wife, Erin Holloway Palmer, and volunteers of the Friends of East End group, he's cleared nearly half the 12 or 13 acres suitable for burial on the site. They've logged graves, documented headstones and connected descendants with their family, many for the first time in decades.

Even as he continues the hard work of restoration, Palmer has gone to court hearings with the Friends to ask for "a direct and substantive role in planning and decision-making" for the families of people buried in East End cemetery, which is considered abandoned and has no current owner. Those hearings ended with no rules imposed on Enrichmond, which is on the cusp of acquiring the site after it pays any outstanding back taxes and liens on the land.

Although the cemetery restoration is a volunteer effort, Palmer's professional work is focused to similar ends. He's been a journalist for some 30 years with long stints overseas. He worked in Beijing as the bureau chief of U.S. News & World Report and in Iraq for CNN, and later directed "Full Disclosure," his award-winning documentary about embedding with the Marine Corps in Iraq. After going freelance, though, Palmer shifted his focus to domestic conflicts, reporting on the legacy of the Confederacy and the people who still defend it. That effort has included a series for Colorlines, titled "Race Trips," and a more recent piece, "The Costs of the Confederacy," the subject of a talk he gave at Chop Suey Books recently.

Published in Smithsonian magazine, the piece is the end result of a year spent visiting Confederate sites across the South. Palmer and his co-author, Seth Freed Wessler, write that at these sites, what's known as the Lost Cause narrative — which minimizes the evils of slavery and distorts the Civil War — is being funded by public money to the tune of $40 million over the last decade alone. This is just part of a long history of public money being used to uphold the Confederacy, says Palmer, who worries that we're repeating the mistakes of the past by letting historic African-American cemeteries go into private ownership.

While Sydnor praises Palmer's work and intentions, he disputes both his description of Enrichmond and his interpretation of the grant. He stresses that Enrichmond is a 28-year-old organization originally founded by the city to support public spaces, such as Belle Isle, which was in danger of private acquisition before Enrichmond bought it and established a permanent easement.

In terms of size and experience, he says the organization has grown to eight permanent employees, including Ted Maris-Wolf, a historian and specialist in African-American genealogy, employed as the caretaker of Evergreen Cemetery. It also took in $900,025 with expenses more than $1 million according to a 2017 tax filing, all prior to receiving any funds from the Virginia Outdoors Foundation.

"We purchased Evergreen with our own money," Sydnor adds, describing years of negotiations with the owners, in accordance with a plan the previous director of Enrichmond drafted eight years ago. Those long negotiations to buy Evergreen from Entzminger began in 2012. "I had to earn their trust and we knew that," Sydnor says. "I was meeting with them, having breakfast with Mr. Entzminger, working burials with them."

He says it was important to learn what was needed to maintain the cemetery, and as the only employee of Enrichmond at the time, he started volunteering and helping Entzminger, who was struggling to keep up with the work despite age and illness. When the purchase went through, it cost $140,000, mostly to pay back federal and state taxes the property had accrued.

Sydnor's supporters say they're encouraged by what they've seen since Enrichmond purchased Evergreen: The nonprofit will bring in AmeriCorps volunteers, has expanded the genealogy work on the site, hired a full-time caretaker, and has made important site improvements at Evergreen, such as opening road access and adding interpretation and maps.

Palmer questions the legality or at least the ethics of the process that began before Enrichmond purchased the land. He asks if grass-roots groups couldn't have been considered as the preservation partner, noting that if money is what was needed, the current volunteers, family members and other community stakeholders would have been able to use the grant that went to Enrichmond. For an alternative model, he points to the Preservers of the Daughters of Zion Cemetery group, which worked with Preservation Virginia to protect a smaller African-American cemetery in Charlottesville.

Brett Glymph, executive director of the Virginia Outdoors Foundation, echoes Sydnor in her praise for Palmer and the Friends, but firmly denies any illegal or unethical behavior. Although Palmer says he was blindsided by the money flowing to Enrichmond, Glymph says it was always the plan, and she says she doesn't know why there is any confusion.

"Our statutes control that. In order to give the grant, we have to receive a real estate interest, which can only be conveyed by the owner. That's not some contrivance, that's the way a real estate foundation works," she says. Because Enrichmond was already planning to buy the land, it was the obvious partner, she says.

As to the fitness of Enrichmond, Glymph says a thorough vetting process that included checking with the City of Richmond and reviewing the group's long-standing easement on Belle Isle convinced her it was the right partner.

"[The city said] they created this foundation to do these sorts of things," Glymph says. "They get an ongoing appropriation from the city, so they're city supported, with a 28-year track record."

Ryan Smith, a history professor at Virginia Commonwealth University who researches the cemeteries and coordinates the Richmond Cemeteries project, disagrees that the process was thorough.

"They reached the most expedient solution but not the best one," he says, noting that a single partner was proposed and accepted, without considering other nonprofits or groups. He thinks the process wasn't fair to the Friends, who, he says, "have the best interest of that site in mind and the proof is in their actions. They've cleared two-thirds of the site on their own."

Both Glymph and Sydnor praised the restoration work done so far, and despite the breach, say they'd like to work with the Friends going forward.

"It's unfortunate that things have soured," Glymph says.

She hopes that Palmer will come back to the partnership and even join the expert advisory committee established to provide oversight. The committee, which includes former state legislator and Richmond City Councilor Viola Baskerville and John Mitchell, a descendant and namesake of the famous newspaper editor, holds regular public meetings and is working with Enrichmond and others to draft long-term plans for the sites.

Palmer says he won't join unless the expert committee can be an equal partner with binding authority, pointing to language in the charter that allows for the dissolution of the board under Enrichmond.

Sydnor acknowledges that language, but denies any underhanded motives. "That's legalese," he says. "Contracts are written by lawyers to deal with worst-case scenarios."

At the end of the day, he says Enrichmond is liable for anything that happens on its property, and by law, can't give volunteer groups the level of control that Palmer is asking for. He notes that John Shuck, the volunteer coordinator for the Friends, is a member of the expert board, and reiterated that Palmer would be a welcome addition.

He says he's sympathetic to concerns around access, but he hopes the 28-year history Enrichmond has with other volunteer groups could provide some reassurance.

"We're new to their sacred space, where they've given a lot of time and effort," he says, describing discussions he's had with members of the Friends. "I think they're worried that we're going to block access, and what we've tried to convey is that Enrichmond, for 28 years, has achieved success through supporting volunteer efforts. Why would we take away a dedicated group of people who are reclaiming graves in a historic African-American grave site?"

In addition to their reputation, Sydnor says they face legal oversight, such as the regulations mandated by the state Department of Historic Resources, and have worked with groups such as the Elegba Folklore Society, the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society of Richmond and the Black History Museum of Richmond, all of which support the acquisition. He hopes that volunteers remain committed, and says Enrichmond just wants to provide protection for the land on which their work happens.

Baskerville, who helped negotiate the deal as a member of the Virginia Outdoors Foundation and has ancestors in both sites, says she too hopes that all the volunteers will remain involved. "They're the heartbeat," she says. "This project is at this stage because the volunteers always kept the faith."

She suggests that the conflict comes from confusion around what ownership means, pointing to the permanent easement over the land as its legal protection.

"Enrichmond is not trying to control us," she says. "If you take the 60,000-foot view of this project, it is the people that are in control of what this project looks like, what the space will look like. It is the people that hold this sacred memory and the vision for the future. Enrichmond is just the legal owner and the steward of the property. I think if people can separate those two, that will help defuse a lot of this tension."

Palmer says he can't separate the issues, especially after a process that he characterizes as misleading and manipulative. Glymph says that wasn't her intention, but she regrets that there were misunderstandings or miscommunications.

"This is the first time we've done something like this," though, she says. While it didn't go perfectly, she thinks it went as well as it could have, but she's worried now that the conflict will overshadow the work.

"We have this one group that is critical, but I don't think that should detract from all the support, good will, and good work that has been done to date," she says. "Those roads into Evergreen, which have been opened for the first time in many, many years, have allowed so many families to come in and find their family plots, or at least give them the confidence that they can be found."

"If I could go back and do it again, I would," she says about the grant, even despite the risk and the misunderstandings. In the maps and aerial views, she says, "You could visibly see Jim Crow. It was a moral imperative that something be done, and we did it, and I'm hoping it will set an example for people to do something across the whole Commonwealth."

Descendant John Mitchell says that while everybody may not agree on how to do things, he believes they agree on the overall goal.

"I don't see anything wrong with dissension. I think even though we disagree, we can get things done," says Mitchell. "Everybody agrees we need to clear it, and that's what we're doing. And I'm glad to see it's a very multicultural thing. … it's a beautiful opportunity. Twenty years from now, I want them to see that the citizens did this."

Asked about next steps in their fight against the acquisition, Palmer says the group operates democratically, and any decision will come out of a consensus established during its weekly phone call.

He's certain about one thing, though: "We're going to keep doing what we do. We're going to show up every Saturday and continue the work of restoring this sacred site, just as we've done since the middle of June 2013."

Clarification from the author: Due to legislation passed in 2017, the owner of each cemetery can receive state funding similar to the funding Confederate gravesites have long received, though it is just starting. Also, a sentence has been changed to reflect that, while the two Richmond cemeteries were not "defunded" during Jim Crow, many similar cemeteries of the period were. Style regrets any error or confusion.

Since releasing its tropics-inspired Souvenir Key-Ring Necklace last week, AMBUSH has returned with a new drop of tie-dye T-shirts exclusively on SSENSE. The simple graphic tee is not for the minimally-inclined, however, as the two options offered feature iridescent colorways that lend a truly retro aesthetic. Both versions of the 'A' Waves shirt feature the letter "A" embossed on the front chest and three graphics on the back, including the yin and yang symbol. The pink edition of the top is accented with shades of blue and brown, while the text is printed in black for contrast. Meanwhile, the yellow version is underscored with tones of orange and purple, while navy text provides a neutral touch. Made in Japan, the item is constructed with a crewneck collar and crafted in 100% cotton rib knit. The AMBUSH 'A' Waves Tie-Dye T-Shirt retails for $480 USD. It is available to purchase now in "Pink" and "Yellow" at SSENSE. For more fashion from AMBUSH, take a look at the "Black/Black-Pale Grey" colorway of the label's collaborative Nike Air Max 180 sneaker.

          Forum Post: Import pending vendor invoice      Cache   Translate Page      
According to this https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics365/unified-operations/financials/accounts-payable/vendor-invoice-automation we started to investigate, if vendor invoice circulation and handling could be actually done without 3rd party software, inside D365 F&O. Our idea was to import xml invoices with a help of a Logic App (which reads from OCR service) using standard data entities for header, lines and an attachement, then try to match for the receipts and, if needed, do some circulation for approval. The problem is, that purchase order line number is mandatory for invoice lines. Our idea was to have reference to a PO and have the lines with items and quantities and then do the matching against receipts on D365 F&O side. It is extremely rare to have PO line numbers on invoices, instead only a PO number as a reference. This means we should read PO data on Logic App and do some kind of matching for PO lines and invoices lines already before import. My question is, does anyone have any experience with pending invoice import on standard D365 F&O functionalities and what is you solution? Thanks.

          Mortal Engines (2018)      Cache   Translate Page      
Welcome to yet another version of the post-apocalypse. This time around, the post-apocalyptic wastelands are roamed not by new wave biker gangs but by, huh…moving cities who consume each other in what looks to me like a rather dubious use of resources. Well, there is a country with a Chinese name with a rather international population “in the East” that does think the same and guards against the aggressive cities via a big ass armed wall.

Anyway, the film starts in the moving city of London that has made its way to what was once continental Europe to grab resources where only tiny citylets roam. Or that’s the official version, but if you think whatever kindly archaeologist/engineer Thaddeus Valentine (Hugo Weaving) is building in St. Paul’s isn’t some kind of super weapon, I have something for you to rub on the soft parts of your neck. And indeed, the newest eaten city brings with its influx of newbies – hats off to New London for not murdering the population of the cities they eat - one glowering young adult named Hester Shaw (Hera Hilmar). Her manifold kinds of glowers and her tendency of hiding a decorative scar under a fetching red scarf clearly mark her out as our heroine; and her first act of business upon arriving on London is to attempt to kill Valentine who has apparently murdered her mother. Inigo Montoya understands. That murder attempt does of course go pear-shaped (else this would be a rather short movie), not the least thanks to the intervention of one Tom Natsworthy (Robert Sheehan), a young historian of the underclass. Tom then proceeds to chase Hester through the innards of London; at the end of the chase, she lets drop some details about Valentine’s evilness before she falls through, well, the literal ass end of London. Which is where Valentine pushes Tom through too, for he can’t have anyone knowing he’s an evil mad scientist.

Fortunately, our young heroes have the survival abilities of cartoon characters, so all is set up for the two first learning to grudgingly respect one another, then to love. All the while, they are traversing the bizarre post-apocalyptic earth. Also appearing are slavers in absurd giant vehicles (because everything in this world is ten times as large as it makes sense for it to be); a spy/revolutionary with awesome anime hair (Jihae), a robot undead named Shrike (Stephen Lang); awesome airships with awesome roguish captains of various races and genders; a base in the clouds; and other goofy yet awesome crap. From time to time, we also pop in to Valentine being evil and scenes of his boring daughter (Leila George) and some equally boring guy (who cares) finding out that the guy the audience know is evil is indeed evil.

If all this sounds to you rather implausible and goofy even for the standards of a big fat blockbuster based on a popular YA novel, you are absolutely right. The film also suffers from an overload of standard big fat blockbuster clichés coming thick, heavy and often rather pointlessly (why is the “I am your father” bit even in there, for example!?), and a script so mechanical, you can hear its clockwork ticking so loudly it is impossible to ignore. It’s a pretty inefficient clockwork too: is it really necessary to cut away from our heroes having awesome adventures and our villain being villainous to Valentine’s daughter so the film can be sure we remember her later on when she has the important plot function of braking a city?

For a film as goofy as it is, Mortal Engines also is surprisingly, often nearly absurdly, po-faced, taking itself so seriously, treating the most obvious dramatic clichés as if they were really clever and hot shit. It’s not the sort of thing you’d expect from a film based on a script by Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh (and Philippa Boyens), who certainly aren’t afraid of standard tropes and clichés but have quite a bit of experience in selling them convincingly.

Here’s the thing however: seeing all these weaknesses, I found myself enjoying Mortal Engines immensely. In part, the film’s insistence on rote clichés and ultra-traditional plotting told in an overly earnest manner might be stupid and ill-advised, but it is also charming as hell, rather like listening to an overenthusiastic kid telling us all about this awesome adventure story she has just come up with. Consequently, as long the film follows either Weaving’s patented villainy or the likeable couple of Hilmar (who really has an astonishing number of different glowers in her repertoire; I’d recommend her for a role as the masked vigilante of your choice) and Sheehan and their crazy adventures, I found myself grinning about this dumb nonsense like a loon. Only the handful of scenes with Valentine Jr. let down the film here, but there’s not too much of that to suffer through.


Then there’s the film’s other strength. Director Christian River’s was apparently Peter Jackson’s storyboard editor (though he also directed the short film Feeder (see Minutes Past Midnight), and clearly brings with him a great ability to put the film’s impressive, absurd, and clearly anime/manga/French language SF comic inspired production design front and centre. So while few of the contraptions and places we see make much sense once you start thinking about them, they are so impressive and beautiful, realized with so much imaginative detail, their silliness just makes them all the more beautiful. Because that’s what movies are there for too: showing us things we haven’t seen or imagined before just because they are wonderful (in the sense of “full of wonder”) not because they have to make sense. Rivers is also pretty good at actually using all the beautiful stuff in the action sequences, so all of it isn’t just a pretty backdrop but the heart and soul of the action.

          Woodland Wander Chain of Stars Quilt      Cache   Translate Page      

I'm sooooo excited to share my Chain of Stars Quilt with Woodland Wander by Clothworks and AMB Solids fabrics! I loooove this quilt so much!!! This quilt has it all - Stars, Fussy Cut blocks with the cutest woodland animals, and purple!!! 

Just look at the cute little woodland critters.



Plus these easy Star Blocks will always have points so you don't have to worry about loosing them when sewing the blocks together...yay!


Let's chat more about my newest pattern - Chain of Stars!



Chain of Stars is beginner friendly that uses a full Layer Cake...yes all (42) 10" squares! Yay for using ALL the fabric! Or you can use larger cuts of fabric and fussy cut your center blocks OR make it totally scrappy! All fabric pieces are labeled to make assembly super easy!


Chain of Stars is lap size quilt that finishes 54.5" x 63.5". But you can easily make it larger or smaller by making more or less blocks!!!



Quilt Supplies





Woodland Wander is designed by Rebecca Jones for Clothworks. I love Rebecca's illustrations! The fabrics in Woodland Wander are adorable - full of  bunnies, squirrels, hedgehogs, frogs, fireflies, birds, and textured solid prints. 


I used American Made Brand Fabric solid white for my quilt background and LOVE it! Know what is super cool....American Made Brand Fabric is MADE in the USA. American Made Brand 100% cotton fabric is grown, spun, woven and dyed in America!!! So awesome!!! It is available in 75 colors and can be purchased at fabric shops including Fat Quarter Shop! I think I need to make an AMB solid quilt very soon!!!


I looooove the fabric I chose for the backing....it's seriously the cutest with all the animals! It would make the most adorable whole cloth quilt too!!! Since the fabric is directional - you will need 4 yards of fabric for this quilt if you want those cute animals standing upright on your quilt back ;). 



For the binding, I chose the sweet lilac and mint floral print -- it's gorgeous!!!


I just looooved sewing with Woodland Wander fabric - it just made me feel so happy. Since I wanted to keep sewing with the Woodland Wander fabric,  I already started my Layered Cake Quilt pattern with the coordinating panel...I can't wait to finish it and share! 


Don't forget- you can purchase your Chain of Stars Pattern here for $5.00.

Источник: https://stoneridgesoftware.com/breaking-down-the-cost-of-dynamics-ax-compared-to-dynamics-365-finance-and-operations/ ============== There are different advantages in the total cost of ownership between an on-premise software versus cloud hosted. While some may say that the cloud is less expensive, what we’ve seen is actually a shift in costs and where money is allocated for your ERP system. In this article, we’ll look at the different places where financial shifts are occurring for those moving from Dynamics AX on-premise to Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations. *Licensing Costs* Nearly all businesses are used to the traditional pricingmodel in which a small percentage of a software solutions total cost is spenton licensing and the large majority is spent on hardware and IT resources.While the up-front cost to purchase software was low, underlying costs couldeasily amount to nearly 75% of the total cost of ownership. With Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations, businesses canexpect to pay more for licensing and software fees, but considerably less ontraditional hardware and IT costs. If there’s one thing that remains consistent with licensing costs from Microsoft, it’s that they can be confusing to navigate. Make sure to have a good understanding of exactly how many and what type of licensing you need to avoid any unnecessary expenditures. A knowledgeable partner like Stoneridge Software can help you understand software licensing requirements before signing the check. *Infrastructure and Hardware* Dynamics 365 is hosted on Microsoft’s servers, cutting out your need to spend money purchasing, updating, and remaining compliant with your own internal servers and hardware. Companies will also see less capital infrastructure expenses with the reduction in physical space required to store large servers and other hardware. *IT Resources* Dynamics 365 brings a responsibility shift from in-house IT resources to Microsoft, reducing or eliminating maintenance, patches, security, and upgrades that need to be done in-house. With less requirements for your internal IT staff to maintain, they can focus on other business needs. *Training* Fewer resources will be spent on training Dynamics 365 usersdue to the user-friendly interface and built-in support services. The cloud software model of Dynamics 365 provides morevisibility into the hard costs or operating expenses of your solution and amore predictable cost over time. Less time spent on maintenance andinfrastructure frees up your workforce to do more. Outside of more predictable costs, there are major benefits to a true cloud ERP solution.

          Halo: The Master Chief Collection Headed to PC and Steam, Halo: Reach Being Added      Cache   Translate Page      

Microsoft Game Studios announced Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming to Windows PC via the Microsoft Store and Steam. Also announced is Halo: Reach will be added to the collection.

Read the announcement post below:

Today we’re extremely excited to share two big announcements that deliver on what are easily the most frequently requested asks from our community over the last few years: First, Halo: Reach is being added to Halo: The Master Chief Collection (MCC) and second, the entire collection is coming to PC via the Microsoft Store and Steam! This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for us to bring the Halo Universe and Master Chief’s story to a new audience and to offer PC gamers a chance to step into the franchise on the PC platform of their choice.
For the team at 343 Industries, the most important and critical element of this project is ensuring that Halo: The Master Chief Collection delivers a true “first class” experience on PC. We’re embarking on a journey with our community to build a PC experience that delivers on PC gamer expectations. The team is passionately committed to ensuring that all of the features, bells, and whistles expected in a modern PC title are included with MCC.

The Master Chief’s arrival on PC will happen in stages with each title releasing one by one over time -– giving the development teams the ability to ensure each one is right, while giving players a chance to jump in right away, rather than having to wait for the entire suite of games to be completed. Our current plan is for this journey to begin with the launch of Halo: Reach – the fictional beginnings of Master Chief’s saga – with the rest of the titles following in chronological order thereafter. Halo: ReachHalo: Combat EvolvedHalo 2Halo 3Halo 3: ODST (Campaign), and Halo 4 will each be available for individual purchase within MCC as they become available. And each game will evolve and grow over time with community input.

Along with “bring Halo: The Master Chief Collection to PC!”, the next loudest refrain from Halo fans has been to “add Halo: Reach to Halo: The Master Chief Collection!” and we’re excited to make good on both requests later this year. Halo: Reach in Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Xbox One looks better than ever in stunning 4K/HDR on compatible hardware and plays better than ever at a silky smooth 60FPS.

On Xbox One specifically, Halo: Reach’s multiplayer content (which includes Forge and the Theater) will be automatically included for everyone who owns Halo: The Master Chief Collection while Halo: Reach’s Campaign and Firefight experiences will be offered together as a premium digital add-on. Xbox Game Pass subscribers will have access to the entirety of Halo: Reach within MCC as part of their subscription. Halo: Reach will look and play just as great when it lands on the Microsoft Store and Steam with Campaign, Multiplayer, and Firefight available for purchase as the first step in this PC journey.

We know many of you will have questions, so stay tuned to Halo Waypoint – we’ll have plenty more to say, share, and show on the road to release. The team at 343 Industries, along with our partners at Splash Damage and Ruffian, are already hard at work and we can’t wait to bring the community along on this journey.

On behalf of the entire 343 Industries team, thank you to everyone who’s continued to play and support Halo and Halo: The Master Chief Collection and for not giving up on the dream of one day enjoying these great experiences on a PC.

          Sterling Silver Unicycle Charm Tricks Clown One Wheel 3D Solid .925 by jewelbecharmed      Cache   Translate Page      

9.95 USD

This sterling silver charm shows a unicycle, it is solid and three-dimensional and measures approximately 23mm tall, 12mm wide and 11mm deep. This listing contains multiple photos and a detailed description (keep scrolling down for additional information!) If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Material: solid .925 sterling silver
Size (mm): 23mm tall, 12mm wide and 11mm deep
Size (inches): just over 7/8" tall, just under 1/2" wide and over 3/8" deep
Made in the USA

Please note that the charm measurements do not include the length of any removable attachments. These will vary some, but a jump ring or split ring would add about 4mm (1/8") onto the overall length, a lobster clasp about 10mm (3/8"), and a large hole bead about 13mm (1/2").

---------------------------

Pick Clasp / Closure:
Select an attachment to go on this charm from the options provided. All are solid .925 sterling silver. If you're not sure which one you need, choose the jump ring. To see samples of the different attachments offered, please refer to the last photo in this listing.

JUMP RING (most popular): slide your charm onto a necklace chain or attach it to a traditional chain style charm bracelet with this option. A jump ring can be opened and closed with pliers. While you don't have to, you could have a jeweler permanently solder the jump ring shut after it's on your bracelet for maximum security. I use a sturdy 18 or 19 gauge jump ring, the 18 whenever possible and the 19 on charms with smaller loops (most common with miniature charms).

SPLIT RING: some people prefer a split ring when attaching a charm to a bracelet. A split ring is similar to a jump ring, but has a double loop like a keychain. I use a 6mm split ring on all charms that will fit one, and smaller rings when necessary.

LOBSTER CLASP: people who like to change their charms frequently may prefer this option, as you can quickly clip it on and off your jewelry. I use a small 9mm lobster clasp for these. As this is a smaller clasp, it will fit on many traditional chain style bracelets, but not on thick or European style chains.

PENDANT BAIL: adding a pendant bail to a charm gives it a nice, finished look if you intend to use the charm as a pendant on a necklace. A charm with a pendant bail attached will arrive ready to slide on a chain for a unique necklace! The bail (see example #6 in the last photo above) is a little less than 10mm tall and 4mm wide, the opening is about 2mm x 4mm, so it will fit on chains or cords measuring less than 2mm wide. Please note that miniature charms may have a miniature pendant bail attached instead (#5 in the photo above), which measures a bit smaller than the other bail but has a similar sized opening.

LARGE HOLE BEAD: these are necessary if you wish to add the charm to a European style charm bracelet, the other attachment options will not work with those. The bead has an inner diameter just under 6mm across and will fit on popular brands of European style bracelets and thicker chains or cord. You can pick the bead style you want from the following options, just leave me a note when you checkout with your choice (pictures of these can be found in the last photo above). If you don't indicate a preference, I will pick one for you.
A = Narrow plain
B = Narrow beaded
C = Curved inwards
D = Beaded (most popular)
E = Spiral
F = Textured inner band
G = Banded
H = Rectangles with square cutouts
I = Triangles with cutouts
J = Southwestern style cutout
K = Arrow / arrowhead cutout
L = Squared
M = Plain
N = Dotted

NONE (Add Your Own): no attachment will be added for you. To put the charm on your jewelry, you will need to add your own attachment later, such as a jump ring. The closed loop (usually at the very top) of a charm is permanent and will still be on the charm! If you're not sure what I'm referring to, look at the last picture in this listing. Each of the sample size charms have their permanent closed loop at the top, those will not be removed. In that same picture, you can see how the different attachment options need to be inserted through that loop, and only then can the charm be added to jewelry.

---------------------------

Quantity:
The price listed is for one (1) charm. To view current information on discounts available for larger orders, please refer to my store's Policy page:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/jewelbecharmed/policy

---------------------------

Shipping:
Most items from my store, including charms, qualify for flat rate shipping. The shopping cart will automatically combine multiple purchases from my store into one order. My processing time to prepare this item for shipment may vary, please refer to the Shipping & Policies tab on this page for the "Ready to ship in" time frame. If you are in a rush and need a faster processing time than what is shown, please contact me in advance to find out whether an expedited processing time is possible. Once an order has been processed and shipped, standard shipping (USPS First Class mail) averages 2-5 business days for delivery within the U.S. While this timing is accurate for most orders, the U.S. post office does NOT guarantee delivery times for First Class or Priority mail, so neither can I. Due to recent restructuring within the postal system and closures of distribution centers, a small number of First Class and Priority packages have been experiencing shipping delays. If you need your package to arrive in a certain time frame, please consider upgrading your shipping. You may select an alternate shipping method in your shopping cart.

---------------------------

Additional information for international orders:
For international mail (including Canada), first class delivery is usually within 2-4 weeks. Please note that I have no control over whether your country may or may not charge you importation fees, duties or tariffs when they deliver your package and I am not responsible for those. I also will not falsify customs documents, so please do not ask. Expect shipping delays around the holidays! International mail can move very slowly the entire month of December and beyond.

---------------------------

Ordering gifts:
I can mail your purchase directly to the gift recipient if you wish. Leave me a note at checkout telling me it's a gift so I know not to include an invoice. Confirm the shipping address and give me your name or a gift message to include in the box, so the recipient knows who their gift is from! I do not offer gift wrapping services, but can pack your purchase in a little gift bag or paper gift box by request.

---------------------------

Interested in this charm on finished jewelry?
Do you love this charm, but prefer it on finished, ready-to-wear jewelry? I do sell other jewelry components separately, including bracelet and necklace chains. If you purchase any of those components and the charms to go on them, all you have to do is ask and I can put the finished jewelry together for you at no extra charge. You can find current options available on the bottom of my store Policies page:

          Mondo Guerra is hosting Project Runway's brand new companion series Runway Remake      Cache   Translate Page      

Whether you watch the show or not, many people have heard of the fashion-forward competition series Project Runway. The show premiered in 2005 and since then has amassed a  fiercely loyal fan base. Now, the wildly popular show has a companion series that will take fans out of their viewing seats and into their own creative world where they can truly be a part of the action in their own way. Mondo Guerra gave Metro the scoop on the brand new show. 

Mondo Guerra is hosting Project Runway's brand new companion series Runway Remake 

Runway Remake will premiere with Project Runway (now back to its original home channel Bravo) on March 14 through NBCUniversal’s state-of-the-art digital lifestyle learning platform and streaming service Bluprint. There will be nine episodes of the brand new digital series and the Denver based streaming company got a familiar face to host the series- Project Runway All-Stars winner Mondo Guerra.

Guerra was thrilled to get the call about the new series, the 40-year-old was a fan favorite when on PR and was the first and most obvious choice to host this new companion series. "This is crazy because it happened very, very quickly. I knew 'Project Runway' was going to be coming back to Bravo, and I was very excited about it, but I hadn't heard anything about the new show yet," says Guerra. "I didn't get a lot of information but it sounded like a fun project."

Mondo Guerra

Although Guerra wasn't sure what to expect for his new hosting gig, he had his priorities straight. "The first thing that I was worried about was my wardrobe. Being on camera, that was my first hurdle."

Mondo Guerra is known for his incredible style, and although his designs didn't win Project Runway the first time around on season 8, when he came back to the show for the All-Stars edition he came out on top. Now he has a new role to take on for the first time — hosting. 

"Going into the Bluprint Studios, I was very nervous," says Guerra. "Hosting a show that is focused on creativity and also being a companion series of Project Runway, I knew I had a lot on my shoulders."

The new series will showcase different DIY projects that mimic the challenges done on Project Runway. It gives viewers the chance to use their own inspirations from the show and make it into something completely personal and unique. "When viewers watch 'Project Runway' on Bravo and get inspired by the challenge they can go to Bluprint and watch the companion series and they can participate by doing the challenge themselves."

Mondo Guerra

Bluprint is also debuting a DIY box on March 14, fans can purchase the box and take their creativity a step further. "The wonderful thing about creativity is that it's great with a challenge, I love a challenge. The biggest relation with DIY versus Project Runway is the challenge. If you get this box and you make and sew your own garments- there's no time limit" says Guerra. "On Project Runway you have ten hours to create a whole garment and present it to the judges. With the box, you can make this garment on your own time as you want to and as you like — and the best part is no one is judging you."

The series will be available on Bluprint's website and also through an all-new mobile app. The challenges and DIY magic each week will surely inspire many to get up and get creating. "I think that no matter what you do whether you're a sewist or a crafter or a cake maker- it's all relative. It's fun to see how people share and celebrate creativity," says Guerra. "All the episodes of 'Runway Remake' re-interpret the 'Project Runway' design challenges into their own craft and tutorials, eventually presenting DIY projects. It's very exciting, I can't really tell you the challenges because well, what do they call it? Spoilers?"

Runway Remake will premiere on Bluprint alongside Project Runway on Bravo on March 14

          Utah Symphony Family Series Present Kid-Friendly Programming      Cache   Translate Page      

In conjunction with Ballet West II and Story Pirates, Utah Symphony continues its Family Series by providing marvelous symphonic music in family-friendly performances. Ballet West II will join Utah Symphony in Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf," a short ballet written to introduce children to orchestra instruments, on March 16 at 11 AM & 12:30 PM Abravanel Hall. The "Story Pirates: Symphony Extravaganza!" will have a performance on April 20 at 11 in Abravanel Hall. Tickets, priced from $9 to $26, are available for purchase through www.utahsymphony.org or by calling (801) 533-6683.

The Utah Symphony Family Series features mid-day Saturday performances for affordable family outings. These kid-friendly performances add wonder and excitement for every age with captivating stories, enchanting music, and entertaining visuals. The Utah Symphony Family Series' goal is to inspire young minds and introduce famous symphonic works in a friendly and visually-entertaining setting.

Utah Symphony and dancers from Ballet West II will bring Prokofiev's timeless musical tale of a boy and his forest friends' bravery to life. Audience members can hear the young hero strut to the melody of the strings, the bird flit to the flute, the cat slink with the clarinet, and all the characters find their voice in the different sections of the orchestra. The entire family will enjoy the experience of this musical fable for the child in all of us.

Utah Symphony Associate Conductor Conner Gray Covington will be conducting the music during the ballet "Peter and the Wolf." Maestro Covington is in his second year at Utah Symphony and will have conducted 200 performances by the end of his second season. These "Peter and the Wolf" performances will also feature choreography from Ballet West II Choreographer Christopher Sellars. In last year's performance of Ballet West's "Cinderella," Mr. Sellars received praise for his role as "Jester" in the production. Now, he brings his choreography to Abravanel Hall to enliven the music from "Peter and the Wolf."

The ballet "Peter and the Wolf" was written by Segei Prokofiev in 1936 for a children's theatre in Moscow, Russia. Although Prokofiev is known for other ballets such as "The Love of Three Oranges," "Lieutenant Kijé," and "Romeo and Juliet," his children's ballet "Peter and the Wolf" is performed almost every year by the world's most prestigious symphonies.

Prokofiev always intended for the ballet to be educational for children, and he explained, "Each character of this tale is represented by a corresponding instrument in the orchestra...Thereby, the children learn to distinguish the sonorities of the instruments during the performance of this tale."

The second Family Series Concert is the nationally-recognized education and media organization Story Pirates believes that kids have the best ideas. This year Story Pirates will perform with the Utah Symphony for the first time. This Symphony Extravaganza presents well-recognized symphonic music filtered through the wild imaginations of kids and performed by Story Pirates' cast of professional actors and improvisers.

Household cats take flight when they hear On the Beautiful Blue Danube, four ninja sisters battle a monster to the tune of Night on Bald Mountain, kids in the audience decide what sort of character would sound like a tuba, and so much more. By combining timeless music with kids' creativity, anything can happen in this musical adventure.

Do You Like Hitchcock?
2005, Italy
Dario Argento
DVD

No, I don't. Not after this stupid movie ruined him for me. And now I don't like Dario Argento, either. Not that I ever did, exactly. I did, however, have an appreciation of his earlier work, which was essentially comprised of garbled, nonsensical scripts clothed in a an extravagant, baroque visual style, like dogs playing poker painted by Rubens. Argento has always been incoherent and childish, but at least he was pretty, like Tara Reid. Now, he's incoherent and childish, but ugly and grainy, filtered through shitty video, like Paris Hilton. This isn't a riff on Hitchcock; it's a bad pun.

Like Argento, she also clearly doesn't know what she's doing.

Do You Like Hitchcock? is a mix of Rear Window, Strangers On A Train, and a turd. The mighty have fallen, and they've landed in a septic tank. Argento is either not trying, dead and involved in some sort of Weekend At Bernie's-type scheme, or broke from his daughter Asia draining his bank account for cocaine and abortion money. This film is a mess, and is so devoid of Argento's trademark visual style it could just as easily be an ad for a used car dealership on a TV station in Pembroke, Ontario. A film student stumbles upon a murder, and takes it upon himself to solve it, with all the investigative skills of Shaggy from Scooby-Doo. But here's the thing! No one will believe him! Not even his girlfriend! Not even the video store clerk who couldn't more clearly be a killer if he had chunks of 9-year old girl hanging from his teeth! He would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn’t for that meddling kid!

Not only are the effects awful, they're not even present. This is an Italian horror film from an acknowledged master, and 2 people die in the whole fucking thing. Considering that much of the screen time is spent repeating actions endlessly to fill time, like falling off and then getting back on a bike during a thrilling moped/foot chase scene, one would think they'd have time to shoehorn in at least one more gory death. Instead, there's a lot of poorly dubbed dialogue, and acting that wouldn't impress a housewife hooked on General Hospital. This film represents the longest fall from grace since Gabrielle Carmouche fell from Cosby Show guest-stardom and landed on a black man's engorged penis. Except instead of Argento landing on a dick, he fell on a Hitchcock. And while you’re not laughing at that joke, just be thankful you’re also not watching this movie.

              How to speak cat      Cache   Translate Page      
    Many people find cats aloof and mysterious, so much so that a small academic/journalistic industry has sprung up to explain the animals to their owners. Given the time and money people lavish on their pets, it’s remarkable how little they appear to understand them. Recently at the dog park, for example, I watched a woman with an enormous Great Dane puppy doing everything in her power to turn him into a fear-biter.

    Fortunately, she appeared to be failing. The problem was her total inability to speak “dog.” Another large young fellow — a collie/Great Pyrenees mix fond of playing chase — kept inviting her dog to join the game, and she kept misinterpreting his playful feints as threats.

    So she’d pull her dog close and call out for help, confusing to the Great Dane, who was a bit shy to begin with. Evidently, it was his first visit to the dog park. Hers too. Fortunately, a Good Samaritan persuaded her to turn him loose. The dogs quickly sorted things out, and a good time was had by all.

    No harm, no foul.

    In my experience, however, cats are more commonly misunderstood. Many people find them aloof and mysterious, so much so that a small academic/journalistic industry has sprung up to explain the animals to their owners.

    “Why We Think Cats are Psychopaths” is the title of a recent effort in The Atlantic. We do? As one with some experience of the human variety — I wrote a book entitled “Widow’s Web” that featured a couple, plus a bunch of columns about Donald Trump — I certainly never have. Author Sarah Zhang assures us, however, that “anyone who has looked into the curiously blank face of a catloaf knows exactly what that means.”

    I had to look it up: a “catloaf,” so-called, is a housecat sitting with all four feet tucked underneath, hence resembling a loaf of bread. A cat expressing, in other words, comfort, contentment and trust. An uneasy cat would never adopt so defenseless a position — unsuitable for fight or flight.

    However, anybody expecting even the most affectionate kitty to gaze longingly into their eyes like a cocker spaniel should probably stick to geraniums.

    The problem, of course, isn’t cats but people. As Zhang points out, to the imaginatively impaired, “when we look at a cat staring at us impassively, it looks like a psychopath who cannot feel or show emotion. But that’s just its face.”

    Cats’ faces, she points out, lack the muscle structure to change expressions like a human or a dog. That’s not how the animals communicate. Rather, they speak through body language and vocalization — mainly posture. A cat that approaches you with its tail hoisted straight in the air, for example, is saying as clearly as it knows how: “Hello friend, it’s good to see you.”

    Dogs that live with cats understand perfectly; humans not so much.

    Yes, cats are stealthy predators. That’s how they came to live among us. With the invention of agriculture came grain-stealing, disease-carrying rodents. Just behind them came cats, independent rodent control contractors spread around the world from their Middle Eastern origins by sailing ships.

    People inclined to see cats as pitiless and cruel, I’d suggest, have watched too many cartoons with singing mice.

    Take my orange tabby tomcat Albert. Descended from a distinguished line of Arkansas barn cats, Albert exterminated mice from our place and then began commuting a half mile daily to the neighbor’s hay barn. Yet after I fell off a horse and broke several ribs, he changed his life. From being a 90 percent outdoor cat, Albert became an indoorsman. He’d spend hours perched on the arm of my chair in the catloaf position watching Red Sox games and purring.

    After I healed, Albert returned to rodent patrol. He did that because he could tell I was hurting and wanted to comfort me. There’s no other explanation. His younger friend Martin, another orange tabby the dogs and I found in the woods where somebody had dumped him, had no need to alter his routine. Snuggling and purring have always been his main priorities. Possibly he’s a killer too, but you couldn’t prove it by me.

    In my experience, cats rescued from what must have been a terrifying situation — Martin was roughly 12 weeks old, a tiny kitten abandoned a half-mile from the nearest house — never, ever forget. He and his littermate Gigi, who lives on a friend’s cattle farm, remain almost absurdly affectionate. If Gigi can’t find a human to pet her, she will rub-a-dub and sniff noses with her cow friends.

    You see, they’re all individuals, cats. Their personalities differ from one another quite as much as dogs, human beings, and every other species of mammal I know anything about.

    So never mind the Sphinx-like expression. Or the lack of obedience. You don’t train cats; cats train you. Albert gives me orders all day. Fortunately, his needs are simple: in, out, feed me, pet me.

    For the love he gives back, it’s not much to ask.

              2 Pilots Killed As Chinese Navy Fighter Jet Crashes In South China Sea       Cache   Translate Page      

    A Chinese navy fighter jet crashed Tuesday during a training mission in the southern island province of Hainan, situated in the South China Sea, which killed both pilots, according to the People's Liberation Army-Navy.

    The crash took place in Ledong County in the mountainous and heavily forested tropical province. The cause of the crash was under investigation.

    No casualties were reported on the ground, and the Navy didn't say in a statement published on Weibo what type of plane was involved.

    Situated in the South China Sea, Hainan has multiple military installations that have been built up amid China's flexing of its muscular might in the Pacific, according to the AP.

    The incident follows another similar incident in January 2018, when at least 12 crew members died after a PLA Air Force plane, believed to be an electronic reconnaissance aircraft, crashed in Guizhou in the southwest of the country. Between 2016 and 2017, there were at least three accidents involving the Navy’s J-15 "Flying Sharks," which have been attributed to an ongoing shortage of qualified pilots, according to the South China Morning Post.

    Map

    According to several military commentators, China’s military expansion program, which includes the building of new aircraft carriers and purchase of new warplanes, has resulted in a serious shortage of qualified pilots. To fill the vacancies, the Chinese military has started a major recruitment drive while bolstering training programs for pilots.

    Speaking on the sidelines of the ongoing legislative meeting in Beijing Feng Wei, a PLA pilot from the Western Theatre, said the military was currently intensifying its pilots’ training as increasing amounts of new equipment entered service.

    "Personnel quality is the key to everything," he added.

    Video of the crash circulated on Chinese-language social media.

              The T-SQL Tuesday #112 Cookie      Cache   Translate Page      

    tsqltuesdayIt’s T-SQL Tuesday again, and I’m writing in response to Shane O’Neil’s invitation about cookies. Read what he asks and this will make more sense.

    As always, if you want to participate, write a post on your blog and follow the rules on the invite.

    If you want to host, ping me on Twitter.

    My Cookie

    I’ve had quite a bit of success in my career. I’ve worked hard, and I was lucky to be born intelligent enough to get things done in this field, but I’ve had a lot of help along the way. I don’t want to discount the things others have done for me, whether that’s a favor, an opportunity, or a lesson. This post is about standing on shoulders, my own and others, in a way that still makes me smile today.

    I had a lot of experience programming in the past. I’m not great at it, but I’m effective. A few years ago someone asked about getting a list of the PASS sessions from the DVD that they’d purchase in a data set. They didn’t want to go through the HTML index on the drive, but wanted a better data set to work with the sessions.

    At the time, I had the USB key sitting on my desk. I was doing some R learning at the time and decided to see if I could do something in R. I remembered a few years earlier when Aaron Nelson had helped me with a PowerShell script to download some videos, and I wanted to see if I could do something in R.

    I ended up building a short script that read in the data, cleaned it up, and exported a short R script that contained the session titles, authors, and the MP4 file. It took my only tens of minutes, and I was quite proud of it.

    Actually, I need to blog that script.

    In any case, when I sometimes face a task that is unfamiliar, I remember how I worked through the process and got things working. When I worry about a new technology, I remember how I accomplished this in R, which was new to me.

    It’s a delicious cookie, even today.

              Tips on How to Fall Asleep Fast and Stay Asleep      Cache   Translate Page      

    by London looks You need to learn how to fall asleep fast if you are among the millions of people with sleep disorders. How to fall asleep fast is something that many people take for granted. They have no trouble knocking off the instant the head hits the pillow. However for those who toss and turn all night, those who can’t stop watching the clock tick into the early hours of the morning, those who cannot get comfortable or relaxed enough to sleep and get jolted from sleep right when they are finally about to sleep, life is so difficult. With the help of some easy tips you can learn how to treat insomnia and how to fall asleep fast. Our busy lives and the rush of day to day activities does not allow more time to unwind enough to fall asleep and therefore consciously giving yourself time for unwinding can help you slow down and help put yourself in a better position to fall asleep. Exercise releases nutrients and proteins that may be helpful during the day, keeping you active and going, but you want those to wind themselves down before sleeping. Avoid big meals before bed and instead eat snacks that have high levels of serotonin, a natural sedative compound that the body makes from the amino acid tryptophan. Nuts, milk and other diary products, avocados and bananas are a few examples of foods rich in tryptophan. Avoid distractions in the bedroom. Use it to fall asleep, or to enjoy some private time with your partner, but don’t use it for other activities like working, reading or watching television. Without these normal distractions in the bedroom, it will keep its exclusivity for sleeping. Others need total darkness to sleep, so black out those windows that have light leaking through or purchase an eye mask. When trying to find out how to fall asleep fast, it is important not to think about the fact that you need to fall asleep. Over thinking things at night will not help you on your journey to discover how to treat insomnia and how to fall asleep fast. Many people find it helpful to relax in an Epsom salt bath before they go to bed. This gives the muscle time to relax and the mind to slow down, especially if you have some favorite soothing music in the background and a few lit candles about. When you come out and drink a cup of warm milk and head straight to bed, chances are you will fall asleep fast, otherwise you need help. One thing that you have to decide for yourself or with the help of your physician is whether to take sleeping pills to train the body how to fall asleep fast. This is a personal decision however every time you decide to take any medication, you must take into account the long time effect that it will have on the body. Sleep is essential for your health and overall well being so take the time to relax and forget your troubles as we all have troubles. In time, with some effort you will be able to train your body how to fall asleep fast. Esther Ofori’s background is in the health sciences.

              Favorite Baby Items up to 2 Months      Cache   Translate Page      

    1. Aveeno Diaper Rash Cream- You have had a few diaper rashes, and one really bad rash. I have tried several different creams and keep coming back to Aveeno. It's the only one that is strong enough to handle the job, yet gentle enough that it soothes him and doesn't upset his already raw skin. 
    2. Leacho Baby Lounger- Sent from heaven!! I can't say enough good things about this pillow. Before and after his surgery the only way he could really sleep is upright, so despite all the Mommy-No-No's, we let him sleep in the lounger in his bassinet or in the middle of our bed. It is truly been a blessing! Even after I finish nursing I am able to put him in there and know he is still upright enough to not upset any reflux. Quite possibly the best $39 we've ever spent. 
    3. Little giraffe blanket/Aden and anais bamboo blanket/Vonbon Blankets- These blankets are my favorites! They all have different purposes... so here's my breakdown: Little Giraffe Dolce Dot Blanket- The best for the winter and colder months. It's also great for covering him in the middle of the night when you want a little more warmth. 
      Aden and Anais Bamboo Blanket- Breathable and light. Definitely something for the warm summer months or for during the day when you don't want to overheat your already warm little one. 
      Vonbon Blankets- I LOVE Vonbon. These blankets are truly multipurpose. They fold up nicely and are a great addition to the diaper bag. I have used them for burp rags even when nothing else was close enough. They are warm, yet light. Great for all seasons!
    4. Kickee Pants Jammies- These are the only Jammies that Cole doesn't break out into heat rash wearing. They are made of Bamboo and so they are nice and breathable. We love us some KickeePants! They're regular clothes are awesome too!
    5. Prince Lionheart Wipe Warmer- One of the tie bits of advice I received before having Cole was to purchase a wipe warmer. I am now a firm believer in the wipe warmer. He doesn't cry warm wipes hit his little bum... when cold ones do it's a rough diaper change for all involved. 
    6. Rolling Bassinet- a MUST have in our household! We move this little mini crib all over the house. He chills in it in the kitchen with me while I cook, in the living room to take a nap, and sleeps in it at night in our master bedroom. I truly love our little mini crib. And it folds up so its perfect for taking with you if you need to travel for the weekend. 
    7. Mamaroo- Some days, our Mamaroo is the only way I ever get anything accomplished around the house. Especially when he was a newborn, he LOVED his Mamaroo. He still loves it now, but he's wising up to the fact that I leave him in it. Heaven forbid he be alone for a few minutes. Ha!
    8. Solly Baby Wrap- When the mamaroo doesn't work, I just throw on my Solly and take little bit with me around the house or the grocery store. I have two different baby carriers, but the Solly is by far my favorite. It isn't bulky and holds him close enough to me that he feels like I am still holding him. 
    9. Ryan & Rose Paci Clip- I just came across these recently and am IN LOVE. I wish I would have found these sooner! A definite staple for my baby gifts from now on. 
    10. Peg Perego Stroller and Carseat- I can't say enough good things about the carseat and stroller that I picked out for Cole. I did SO much research it was borderline obsessive; however, it has all paid off now. My husband and I bitterly argue over who gets to push the stroller when we are out and about. It's so smooth and easy to steer. The carseat isn't super light, but its layers of cushion have kept Cole perfectly comfortable from the day we brought him home from the hospital. I'm glad we spent a little more and purchased these two items. Worth every penny.

              Nancy Pelosi Punches Trump In Face For Entire Length Of Washington Post Interview      Cache   Translate Page      


    There's been a lot of fuss over Monday's Washington Post interview with Nancy Pelosi. Although a metric ton of Democrats want to impeach Donald Trump, the House Speaker officially declared it a waste of time.

    PELOSI: Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don't think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he's just not worth it.

    "He's just not worth it" is such delicious shade it should appear on a t-shirt or a mug. People are misinterpreting this as Pelosi going soft and promoting foolish bipartisan harmony. No, she just has a brain in her head. The eyes in her head have also witnessed Republicans shamelessly cover for Trump and protect him even when his former personal lawyer testified to what a sleaze he is. Robert Mueller's final report probably won't change the world. It's not a new Harry Potter novel.


    Pelosi is being practical. Yes, Democrats currently can "impeach the motherfucker" in the House on a party-line vote. Then they can look disappointed when walking snot rag Mitch McConnell gives them the full Merrick Garland and doesn't even hold a trial in the Senate. No one's suggesting that we let Trump play-act as president for the rest of our lives. There's another election coming up. Why else are there more Democrats in Iowa than Iowans? We can get rid of both Trump and Pence next year. Why waste time over something that will ultimately fail or, in the "best-case" scenario, end with the old mother lover himself, Mike Pence, as president? Impeachment won't make your conservative relatives finally accept that Trump is a criminal. Nancy can't save your holiday gatherings.

    Many Democrats and liberal pundits disagree, of course. [Your editrix is one of them.] They think impeachment should be based on the "evidence," but we have all the evidence we need that Republicans are corrupt and will never vote to impeach Trump. Rep. Jamie Raskin argues impeachment isn't about whether Trump himself is "worth it" but if the "republic" itself is "worth it." This is all very moving, but it's unclear how the republic is served if Trump is seemingly publicly exonerated. The GOP Senate will flat-out not vote to remove him.

    RASKIN: We can't get so frustrated with Donald Trump that we impeach him just for being Donald Trump, but we can't get so frustrated with Donald Trump that we don't impeach him because he's Donald Trump.

    You don't have the votes. If any plan you have involves Republicans, especially McConnell, exhibiting basic decency and respect for the rule of law, you need to tear up the plan. Rep. Elijah Cummings is more connected to political realities.

    CUMMINGS: Keep in mind, impeachment is a political process. ... Right now when you've got 40 something percent of the country pleased, I guess, with what the president's doing. I think Pelosi realizes this.

    Majority Whip Jim Clyburn also rightly points out that we can drag down Trump's poll numbers and otherwise torment him through ongoing House probes.

    CLYBURN: Impeachment is a political question. I don't care what we may feel — if the public isn't there, we can't go there. And I think the committee hearings and various things going on are what's needed in order for the public to get where they need to be.

    The rest of the Washington Post interview is worth a read beyond the impeachment statement. Pelosi has some badass quotes.

    For 2020, your goal is to keep control of the House and have a Democrat elected president.

    And the Senate, the whole thing.

    Yes, she's coming for everything. If we can just chill out and not chase impeachment fantasies, we can have Congress and the White House gift-wrapped and under the tree for Christmas 2020. Pelosi makes compelling arguments for why Democrats should run the show. She also slits the Republicans' throats with a smile.

    PELOSI: I was born into a family that was devoutly Catholic, fiercely patriotic, proud of our Italian American heritage and staunchly Democrat. And we saw that connection between church and Democrats as the Gospel of Matthew. When I was hungry, when I was thirsty, when I was naked, when I was homeless, when I was in prison. And that was how we were raised, that we had a responsibility to other people. And that was our motivation. So that's why sometimes it's hard for me to understand — I have to admit this, that we were raised to say there's a spark of divinity in every person. That we're all God's children. And yet I see people of faith go down paths that so contradict what they say. For example, on the issue of immigration, so many people of faith, I guess they just don't think that there's a spark of divinity or that we're all God's children. How disrespectful they are.

    Pelosi believes her caucus represent a wide range of ideas, but they remain united through core values. The centrists and progressives are "all of one mind" to truly work for American families and show "respect for every person in our society." She has true affection for the Democratic Party and its members.

    The speaker does not at any point in the interview say the name "Donald Trump." She refers to him either factually as "the president" or with icy dismissiveness as "the person in the White House." It's clear that she considers him utterly beneath contempt. She straight-up says Trump is "ethically unfit, intellectually unfit, curiosity-wise unfit." He's just a big, dumb criminal is what she's saying. It is glorious.

    PELOSI: No, I don't think he's fit to be president of the United States. And that's up to us to make the contrast to show that this president — while he may be appealing to you on your insecurity and therefore your xenophobia, whether it's globalization or immigrants — is fighting clean air for your children to breathe, clean water for them to drink, food safety, every good thing...

    OMG, she just called Trump supporters insecure bigots too stupid to realize he's destroying the world. She's just cutting fools down with a Hattori Hanzo sword.

    PELOSI: I don't usually talk about him this much. This is the most I've probably talked about him. I hardly ever talk about him. You know, it's not about him.

    She really knows how to hurt "the person in the White House." Who needs impeachment? She will belittle Trump to death, and we are here for it.

    Anecdotes and Observations, Reflections and Critical Remarks* 

    March 12th, 1801. — About sixteen years ago, a relation (who I think had a daughter) of Daniel de Foe, the author of Crusoe, lived in Broker Row, Moorfields. He was an old man, and kept a small shoemaker's shop, and had done many years; but I am not quite sure that the relationship was on his side; it might be on his wife's.

    The notices commonly put upon walls, for bill-stickers to read and tremble, are generally worded with a threat of their being prosecuted, &c. I noticed a board affixed to the Tabernacle of G. Whitfield, [1]  worded thus — 'Please to take notice, if any Bills are put against this building, they will immediately be taken down.'

    Providence has a very difficult task to please the creature MAN; the latter neglects his proper avocation, Agriculture, to go in search of black eyes and bloody noses, commonly called military glory, and then blames his Maker for not sending him a proper supply of food. — Publican's Newspaper. [2]

    I think a small kind of carriage to hold one person might be made to go on the ice with great velocity, if the whole strength of the rider could be exerted for that purpose. By the help of a sharp spike, or a pole with three or more spikes, to strike or lay hold on the ice, a great weight might be put in motion. Perhaps some such childish contrivance as this may be in use, though unknown to me. I should like to try it, and convince myself of its practicability. As to the material point, guiding the carriage, I can conceive no method; I like to see skaiting, and I should like to see this. Such a light thing on wheels might be tried on land; but I doubt the labour would be too much. This nonsense makes me think (as indeed I have always done) what a pleasure it must be, to be able to draw.

    I never see a fine prospect but I wish to bring it away with me. The house and grounds at Wakefield, I have in the storehouse of memory; but I should like to have them on paper. I should extremely like to have a view of Honington Green, as it was till the Inclosing Act took place. Wakefield I may (though unlikely) see again; but my native Green, with its daisies, I never shall. To take such a small bit of ground and divide it into three, was hardly worth while. What man, with a sack of wheat on his back, would stoop for one grain?

    Inclosing Acts! I do not much like the rage for them. They cut down the solemn, the venerable tree, and sometimes plant another, — not always; like a mercenary soldier, who kills more than he begets. Resolved — As shepherds are thus going out of fashion, and smiths, &c., coming in: could I not make the old steeple lament the destruction of shades as old as itself, and make a shepherd reply? &c. &c. But it grows near 'witching time of night,' and I perceive I am writing nonsense. If I had had a critic here at my elbow, he would have found it out long ago.

    Remarks on the Garden Spider.

    August 14, 1801. — This morning observed a garden spider, who had one of his own species in durance, holding him suspended, but without much appearance of a web. The prisoner was alive, but a mere skeleton. After a while he was suffered to fall, or the wind forced him from his captivity; but, in falling, he unfortunately struck against a half-formed web, the architect of which I had just been watching, and observed, that all the lines leading from the centre to the extremities were finished; and he was busy, going a continued circle, and joining each with a fresh web, which he drew from his posteriors, at regular strokes, by an extension of his longest legs behind. The beforementioned prisoner fell against his web, and he immediately left work to secure him, being still alive, and having legs not at all diminished, though his body was wasted. His new conqueror seized him, and, rolling him up in a strong web, dragged him to the centre, and there left him secure, and returned to his work, which he soon completed. I had observed him about a quarter of an hour previous to this adventure, and remarked that he caught a number of very small flies, which abounded on every weed, after much rain in the night; and I was not a little surprised that these minute creatures did not stop his progress, but were instantly devoured; not as I expected, by sucking their bodies dry: he took them up very orderly, and very distinctly, and devoured them, wings and all, without leaving the smallest appearance of a fragment. He had eaten seven of these flies before the spider fell in his way.

    August 20, 1801. — A spider of this kind, of an enormous size, has now a web, of about a foot in diameter, hung with spoils, against a wooden fence in the yard. I have repeatedly seen them working their webs, but never could see them begin. The insect, here mentioned, has attached his work on one side to the fence, from which it projects obliquely, and is suspended to a branch of a vine, at the distance of five feet from the circle of the web. As the suspending lines are very strong, and run exactly horizontally, without any intermediate support, it is wonderful to me, to think how they could have been carried so far. A double five foot line, which leaves the fence in this direction, must have been a curious work for him.

    In the outline here given, the upper sketch is looking down on the work; the under one is looking horizontally.

    The body of the spider being nearly half an inch in length, he has more than twenty-four times his length in one foot, and, consequently, one hundred and twenty times in his suspending lines. Now, taking the standard of a man at five feet six inches, one hundred and twenty times his length, will be six hundred and sixty feet, or two hundred and twenty yards; about three times the height of the Monument. [3]  If we were set to tie the tops of the steeples of London together with a cord, without scaffolding, should not we be puzzled to contrive it? We should go to school to spiders, and ants, and bees; but of all these — the spider does his work alone.

    September 9, 1801. — This morning, extricated a bee from a web, but without any signs of life. Another web contained a bee larger than the common honey bee; he appeared completely enveloped in a winding-sheet of the web, of a very large spider, whose premises he had unfortunately trespassed upon. Thus it is evident that this tiger of an insect devours creatures larger than itself. If the means by which he is enabled to do so were common to the beasts of the forest, how dreadful would be a net spun by the lion or the tiger, from which the horse and his rider could not disentangle themselves, no more than a strong bee can from this pest of the garden.

    September 14th, 1801. — Having expressed surprise at the work of a spider, I can now trace with certainty his operations and his power, so as to satisfy myself entirely. Often wondering how came all the long; webs that tickle our noses and glitter in the sun, reaching from one tree to another, and often floating loose in the air; I, a few days past, broke down the web of a garden spider, which was suspended from a building to a fence across a pathway of about five feet, and much the same height from the ground. When his suspending lines were broke, himself and his web fell flat against the building. An hour or two after, I observed him in motion, and wished to know how he would contrive a communication with the fence as before.

    He seemed, for a while, as if taking a general survey of the distance and bearings of the objects around; and then letting himself down from a spout to the distance of about six inches, hung suspended, not in their usual position, head downwards, but with one side downwards, and all his legs greatly extended. In this posture I found that, without the help of his legs, he possessed a power of ejecting a web to what length he pleased, and with surprising swiftness. It had exactly the appearance of smoke issuing through a pin hole; only, in this case, the stream instead of dissipating, became a lengthening line, that floated with the action of the wind, and visibly extended from its source, as fast, or faster than the nimblest black beetle can run. He emitted thus, about seven or eight feet of web, and then ascended to the spout, and waited the event. The line was carried by the wind cornerways, and lodged against the building, and consequently became useless. He did the same again, with the same want of success, and repeated his work a fourth time, when I caught hold of his floating line, at about four feet long, and when extended to five, I drew it over the leaf of a bean, and it became fast; but he, still lengthening it, the line was very slack. After a few minutes he applied himself to drawing the rope tight, which, when done, he travelled upon it to the opposite side, and made my fastening secure; then back again, emitting a new web as he went, and joining it to the other to strengthen it, till it became visibly improved.

    Next, starting from one end, he proceeded, without splicing a new strengthener, to the centre of the horizontal line, exactly to the centre, and there lowered himself down to the ground, and drew this perpendicular line very tight, or else it was his weight that did it. The ground beneath was a gravel path; he there fastened this line to the gravel, at E (see sketch), by pressing it down with a motion peculiar to themselves, and then ascended again: at which time he had formed an obtuse angle, by drawing down the horizontal line; then, forwarding his work, he drew the line D, to which the lines from the centre were to be fastened. To form the line D, he traversed the lines B C, bearing the line D in his claw detached, and, fastening it at the upper end of B, proceeded to draw the lines from A to C and B in the same manner. From this outline, the formation of the lines from the centre to the extremities appeared easy.

    I have sometimes broken down a part of their work, and have observed that they will carefully gather up the fragments of the web, and either leave it in white knots, or appear entirely to swallow it.

    A small spider had fastened a line of his work, to the outermost lines of a web, belonging to a very large one; the latter hastened to the confines of his premises, and cut asunder the stranger's holdfast, something like cutting a boat adrift. I find it a common opinion, that the spider, when he catches a fly, destroys him by poison; it may be so; — but I see, by close observation, that his strong dependence is placed in folding him rapidly up in a web, which he draws from himself abundantly for the purpose.

    ————

    I wonder whether I shall hereafter think these moments mispent in watching a spider? — At present I think their nature and properties strange, and not yet entirely known, even to naturalists; their whole proceedings amazingly curious; their degree of instinctive contrivance, and their exactness of figure in their squares and angles, and visible use of every line, truly astonishing.

    The spider, while descending by his web, was baited by the flies, in the same manner as we see a hawk baited by the smaller birds*.

    October 4th, 1802. — Found last week a letter in the Gentleman's Magazine for 1759 (I think), by a Mr. Masser, 'on the Gossimer,' [4]  wherein he has been correct in his account of the spider having an ejecting power, as to the formation of his web. I found this by observation last summer, and was pleased at the discovery, for to me it was such. But his account of flying spiders is not clear and comprehensive. Does he mean spiders with wings? or, spiders with a power of unlimited elevation, by an ejectment of web?

    * It is now known, that the spider sometimes exhausts the material from which his web is formed; in which case, he is in imminent danger of starvation. I once saw a spider reduced to this extremity, running wildly about on a sunny board. Several large flies, who seemed to enjoy his distress, tormented him, by settling within an inch of his nose; and when the spider made a rush to seize one, he would take a short flight, and settle down again at about the same distance. This game lasted nearly two hours; when the spider's strength and patience appearing to be quite worn out, he retired to a hole. —

    Ed. [Note by Joseph Weston, editor of The Remains]

    Spiders again.

    Proved, by observing a spider with a small microscope, that when I had broken down a web in the garden, he carefully gathered up the fragments, and moistening the accumulated web in its approach to his mouth, swallowed it all again.

    General Observations.

    In addition to the foregoing extracts, I now wish to say a word or two in farther explanation. The nests of this kind of spider are generally attached fast to woodwork, in a dry situation, in size not exceeding an hazel-nut, appearing like a knot of raw silk, of an exceeding close texture. I put one of these into an unstopped bottle, and, forgetting to watch it minutely, I at length found it as follows: From the mouth of the bottle to a shelf above, was about eighteen inches; and I found the eggs hatched, and not less than several hundreds of connecting lines of communication between the bottle and the shelf, covered in every direction with the infant swarm, entirely yellow. From this I think it evident, that the power of ejecting the web is exercised at an early stage of life. I think too, from every consideration, that their preying on each other is a matter beyond a doubt.

    I have somewhere read, that the garden spider uniformly makes his web of great or small dimensions, according to the approaching degree of sunshine or rain, and thus, with the utmost precision, foretels the weather. This I have not yet proved, but am much inclined to give credit to the assertion.

    Custom not only imposes on us modes of dress, and sometimes of conduct, which our reason does not approve, but prevents us from adopting many a useful practice or improvement. I have read somewhere, of the northern nations, wearing a contrivance of wood, to screen the sight, from the reflection of sunbeams from the snow, which, unobstructed, is injurious to the sight. Custom there, does not forbid them to preserve their eyes; but here, where in the summer months, the sunbeams are reflected from the gravel of the roads, and from the pavement of the streets, in almost an intolerable manner; — where the evil of too much light is evident in every one's face, and every eye is half-closed to exclude it; — where thousands, in their walks of pleasure, would gladly gaze on the distant objects before them — the hills, the villages, and the woods, if the quivering of the sun's rays, and his flood of light would permit them; where thousands (myself amongst them) come home with the anguish and languor of a headach, and with eye-balls parched and painful, from having been forced to meet a light ten times stronger than they could bear; if a person, I say, was to put a crape over his eyes, or any contrivance to remedy the evil, the novelty of his appearance would be a real trouble to him, by subjecting him to the scoffs and insults of fools: and yet the pleasure of walking with ease to one's self, is a thing which no one will contemn, when he consults reason only. The prevalence of too much light is to me a serious evil, and I am convinced is hurtful to the sight. Our mothers tell us not to gaze on the sun, and not to read or work by a bad light, thus warning us that extremes are to be avoided; and our feelings tell us to double our clothes in winter, and to strip in summer; to eat our broth when it is cool enough, and not scald our throats; and many other good things would our feelings tell us, if they were properly attended to.

    What a wide difference may be seen between the manner of bringing up children, as to the chance they have of seeing in their youth, what we call the beauties of Nature. If I had been placed in my infancy in the situation of one of the boys who worked in the same garret with me, — had I possessed the power of writing poetry to please the world, — I must have wanted materials at least, to have written what I have. Poor Jem Bailey, was, with four others, left motherless; his father turned them over to the workhouse, situated somewhere in Southwark. When Jem became old enough, he was sent out as errand-boy, to any one who might want such a boy, for which he got nothing but food. He lived with a Doctor, and carried nostrums from morning till night: his master giving him a livery-coat, to raise his own consequence with those he attended. (This was his best coat when he came as an apprentice to the boot-trade.) Another of his masters kept a fishing-tackle shop, in Crooked-lane, and of course part of his trade was to have maggots or gentles to sell to those, who had patience enough to angle in the New River. To obtain this bait, a quantity of bullocks' lights was exposed to the flies on the leads, of the house; and often have I heard the poor boy express the abhorrence he felt, when called from his dinner to serve a ha'p'orth of gentles, which was done by shaking the lights, and picking up the fruit.

    Lord Kenyon's [5]  integrity, as stated in the accounts of trials in the newspapers, (for I never saw him), gives me the highest idea of the character of a Judge, which I have ever found. His office, arms him with power: but the exertion of power is marked with the peculiarity of the possessor. The determined and pithy reproofs he gives to notorious guilt, are the most shining examples of honesty to be found in the language.

    At the time the Albion Mills were burned, [6]  I never saw the newspapers; and led so recluse a life, that three days elapsed before I heard of it, though I lived in Chiswell-street; a proof that there may be now living in Paris, persons, who saw little or nothing of the great events which have taken place there. Again — when five hundred houses were burning at Ratcliffe, [7]  some years ago, I did not know it till the next night! A man's mind may be travelling half over the globe, and yet know little of what is doing next door.

    'Full many a gem of purest ray serene,
    'The dark unfathomed caves of ocean bear.' [8] 

    The sovereign contempt with which too many of the wealthy, and (I fear also) of the learned, look upon what are termed 'the dregs of the people,' has often raised an equal contempt on my side, for that wealth, which engenders such thoughts of the immense distance, which those 'dregs are from the surface.' The distance is not so great as the vain man flatters himself it is; I have known mechanics, who in general information, and in powers of intellect, have stood decidedly before thousands of their own rank. Is it not decidedly so among gentlemen — one clever fellow to a great many dull ones? I have heard more sense and truth in a tap-room, than I have sometimes heard in better company; and there is nothing more striking to me, (and I have been placed so as to observe it,) than that total ignorance of the manner of living among the poor — that superficial and vague idea of who and what they are — of what they talk, and of what they think! Nothing to me has appeared more strange or more disgusting, than finding amongst those ranks, raised above the mechanic and labourer, such a mean opinion of the poor! Gentlemen, 'tis true, seldom enter alleys, or see the domestic habits of those nests of human wretchedness: and they think, perhaps, that poverty must of necessity be accompanied with ignorance ; but I find that a man who works for his living, and reads whatever he can catch——————! His whole soul is bent to that point; and if nature has given him a talent for observation, no situation can make him contemptible. If a great and noble mind is granted by nature to only one in a thousand — does she order that that one, shall not be born in an alley? That he must be rich, or great? Does nature, when she makes an orator, provide him a seat in the House of Commons? — A poor man with a strong mind will make himself respected in his circle, and make useful remarks on every occurrence. A rich man, with great native powers, will do the same. A poor man, with a moderate understanding, will remain at the bottom of his class. A rich man of inferior powers will do the same, in spite of all that can be done for him.

    A short time ago, the publicans' paper, [10]  after stating that the price of corn and flour did not fall in consequence of an abundant harvest, added — 'Let our avaricious tyrants blush! Let them dread the vengeance of parliament! The guardians of the people!' By placing certain words in italics, I suppose it to be wholly ironical; if not, the joke is better still: for what dreadful punishment will a man inflict on himself?

    In their paper of to-day they finish a paragraph of the same sort thus:— 'How long these plans of extortion are to continue, Heaven only knows — for to Heaven only can the people look for relief.'

    Now by this last sentence, one would think they had found out, that the dealers in corn were not likely to blush, or to tremble; and that many of them were among the guardians of the people.

    Walker's Gazetteer [12]  describes Stone-henge, and says that one of the stones measures, according to Doctor Hales, twenty-five feet long, seven feet broad, three and a half feet thick, and says, that no mechanical power now known, could raise such a weight. Guthrie's Grammar, [13]  describes the Pagoda of Chillambrune, near Porto-Nova, on the Coromandal Coast; its entrance beneath a pyramid a hundred and twenty-two feet high, built with large stones above forty feet long, and more than five feet square.

    And of the Pagoda of Seringham, the outer wall of which makes a circumference of four miles; its southern gates are supported by pillars composed of single stones, thirty-three feet long, and nearly five in diameter. This wall encloses six others at equal distances, twenty-five feet high, and four thick!*

    Dined lately in company with Mr. Peel [15]  and his brother, who have brought the skeleton of the Mammoth from America: both clever fellows, and masters of their study.

    Dimensions of the Skeleton now exhibiting in Pall

    Mall, November 25, 1802.

    Ft. In.
    Height over the shoulders 11   0
    Length from the chin to the rump 15   0
    Width of the hips and body   5   0
    Length of the under jaw   2 10
    Weight of the same, 63 1/2lbs.
    Width of the head   3   2
    Length of the thigh bone   3   7
    Ditto of the large bone of the fore leg   2 10
    Largest circumference of the same   3 2 1/2
    Length of shoulder blade   3   1
    Longest rib without cartilage   4   7
    Length of the tusks, defences, or horns 10   7
    Circumference of one tooth or grinder   1 6 1/2
    Weight of the same, 4lb. 10 oz.
    The whole weighs about 1000 lbs.

    This skeleton was dug up almost entire, but the tusks were rotten, so that artificial tusks (made in imitation of a real one, which now lies in the room in a decayed state), are put to this skeleton; but the use of these tusks appears doubtful; and perhaps were not placed as they are here. His teeth, prove most clearly, that he did not feed on vegetable food, and yet his swallow appears much straitened, for so immense a creature.

    This skeleton was found lying at the bottom of a bog, several feet from the surface. Parts of the bones of this kind of animal have been found on the banks of the Ohio, and in various other parts of America, to the number, it is supposed, of fifty; so that the animal, though now an extinct race, has been numerous; and as remains of shell-fish are found with the bones, it is conjectured that an inundation destroyed the race, and left us to wonder at what must have lived, though so much larger than any animal now known to exist — not excepting the elephant. Bones of this creature are found vastly much larger than the skeleton. A thigh bone now lies in the room, some inches longer than those in the skeleton, and a tooth of seven pounds weight is now at Philadelphia.

    Miss Johnson, with whom I dined at the White Hart Inn, Fetter-lane, was personally acquainted with Burns; who, breakfasting with her, drank a large tumbler of beer previous to taking either eatables or tea, saying that he had been up till three in the morning, and had drank too much wine. On Miss J.'s remonstrating with him as to the injury to which he exposed his health, he replied, 'Madam, they would not thank me for my company, if I did not drink with them. I must give them a slice of my constitution.' I wish Burns had given them thinner slices of his constitution, that it might have lasted longer; [16]  I then might possibly have had the pleasure of seeing him. He died but two months after I began composing The Farmer's Boy! though at that time, and long after, his death and history were unknown to me.

    Amongst the glory of England (her unparalleled Charitable Institutions), one more, I think, might be added. A fund to purchase beds for new married couples, under proper regulations, and with the accustomed recommendations as to character, and deserts. This heavy expense (to the poor) is a serious affair, and if not accomplished before the fruits of marriage smile them in the face, it then (when most wanted) becomes more difficult still. I have said of Walter and Jane —

    Give love and honest industry their way,
    Clear but the sun-rise of life's little day. [17]

    Lumping of ages together, as is sometimes done in the newspapers, I cannot relish. It means nothing. I remember seeing six or seven men of great age mentioned, with the common observation of their united ages making so many hundred years. Amongst them were John Wesley, Macklin, [18]  and the late Lord Mansfield. [19]  They were all old men: but the wonder was not increased by the adding into one total, the age of many contemporaries, any more than if we were to say— In the parish of Hackney have seven men, whose perpendicular height when placed on each others' heads, amounts to the surprising total of forty-three feet!

    At the time of the illuminations for Nelson's victory, [21]  I thought if I had had the means to have sported a transparency, I might have quibbled thus:—

    Duncan, Jervis, and Howe, [22] 
    What say you all now —
    (For by you were our triumphs begun:)
    In the midst of alarms.
    You fought well with both arms—
    But Nelson has beat them with one!

    I remember, too, beginning a song on that subject:—

    Old Nile lately cried from his seven-mouth'd bed,
    'Can such echoes proceed from a cloud?
    For ages I've roll'd, and my banks overspread,
    But never heard thunder so loud,' &c. [23]

    The great Oak in Euston Park. — Myself, my wife, and my daughter Hannah, (then nine years and a half old), embraced his rough rind at arms length, touching our fingers; and could thus encompass it all but about half a yard. By observation afterwards, I found the girth of this tree to be fifteen feet, in May, 1801.

    ————

    'Children, like tender oziers, take the bow;
    And as they first are fashion'd, always grow.'

    So says Mr. Gay. [24]  I was fifteen years old, when I first thought the last line untrue. I have more than doubled that age; and I think so still. It will not do for a maxim.

    One half-acre of land, opposite the Prince of Wales's at Brighton, sold for 3500 guineas. My old shopmate, Charles Jones, states, that between twenty and thirty years ago, the Duke of Athol, speaking on the subject of the land-tax in the House of Peers, offered to sell a thousand acres of land, right and title for ever, for a thousand half-crowns!

    ————

    Charles Jones's brother lent a shopmate his great coat, on a particular occasion. On his return home, this shoemaker declared that he never walked the streets so uncomfortably in his life. Wherever he went, the beggars were after him at every corner; and he concluded by protesting that he would not wear a good coat upon any account whatever. He most likely kept his word; for he was a terrible drunkard.

    ————

    Could not the great features, of the history of the world, be represented by something like a firework? Suppose a number of fixed lights to represent the rise and fall of empires. Carthage might brighten to its zenith; and then Rome might arise in all its glories, and decline likewise. The Ottoman power, and the caliphs of Arabia; the blazing of the butchers of the East; the Tartar princes, and all the principal transactions recorded in history. If this could be done on a sufficient scale, and the ground-work be a map of the world, and the lights be made governable, as in Walker's orrery [25]  ——But this is dreaming! — dreaming!

    It is very natural that the working poor should, in their endeavour to finish their work, and to add a few shillings to their day's or week's reckoning, sometimes transgress against the time allowed by masters for the taking in, and paying for their work; and it is just as natural for them, when reproved, to attempt some excuse. Mr. Chamberlain, who employed many hands (my brother and self amongst them), used to have an answer ready for one common excuse. — The journeymen or their wives would plead that 'they had made all possible haste to shop.' 'That's saying nothing,' says Chamberlain; 'you should have set out sooner.'

    This answer might be applied in several other cases with equal justice:—

    To the worldling, who has lately become such, and who grumbles that he has saved no more;

    To the sailor, who loiters away a fair wind, and loses his market;

    And, perhaps, to the man who marries at forty, and gets a young family — 'You should have set out sooner.'

    Dr. Walker, [26]  who is just returned from Egypt, where he spread the vaccine inoculation in the army and navy, relates the following anecdote of the author of 'The Rights of Man,' which Paine himself had given in a company at Paris, where Dr. Walker was present. When a boy, he (Paine) went, in company with his sister — I think it was — to Fakenham wood, in search of nuts; and being by themselves, they wandered out of their knowledge, and knew not the way out again. In this dilemma, Tom, proposed that his sister should stand at a certain spot, while he went a short distance to climb some tree, to see his way out of the wood. He climbed the tree, and missing his hold, fell to the ground, and remembers reviving at the foot of the tree, and finding his sister supporting him. He was bruised, but with whole bones. They were belated and frightened; and both agreed to keep it a secret from their father: and Tom, knowing that his father made a practice of taking pills, thought that pills might do him good too. He took them accordingly, and luckily without producing any bad effect. He got well, and all was secret.

    In relating this story of Tom Paine, Dr. W. remarked, that there are many thousands who will probably exclaim, 'What a pity that he had not broke his neck!' But, on the other hand, continued he, when I heard him relate it at Paris, one exclaimed, 'The guardian angel of liberty was near thee, Thomas.' Dr. W. is a warm republican. I think him an intelligent, a good, and an honest man.

    ————

    Memorandum of Folly. — My good old aunt Austin had many sickly children; burying nine under three years old. With one of them, which was very ailing and fretful, a superstitious cure was attempted. I remember an old woman (Mrs. Osborne, of Honington) being employed to 'cut the child for the spleen.' The child's ear was cut so as to bleed, and the blood applied on the temples in the form of a cross, and, I believe, with something repeated by way of charm; for she had charms for the ague, &c. — The child died.

    ————

    Remember having my fancy set to work by a strange and ridiculous song, about a child going to school and meeting the devil, and having a long conversation with him, and showing him a great deal of wit and repartee:—

    'What have you in your basket?'
    Says the false, false knight.
    'Bread and butter for my dinner,'
    Says the pretty little baby;
    And still by the bush she stood.

    'Whose sheep are those in the pasture?'
    Says the false black knight.
    'Some of them are my father's,'
    Says the pretty little baby;
    And still by the bush she stood.

    'Which of them are your father's?'
    Says the false, false knight.
    'All those that have tails behind'
    Says the pretty little baby;
    And still by the bush she stood.

    'Whose stacks of corn are those?'
    Says the coal-black knight.
    'My father's,' &c.

    'I wish they were all on fire,'
    Says the false, false knight.
    'And you all in the middle on 't'
    Says the pretty little baby, &c. [27] 

    Thus it proceeds for about twenty verses, and I doubt I forget the best of it — what would more certainly have determined its origin, whether from monks or old women, or from some village bard, when the hero of the ballad, the coal-black knight, was in high repute. If this is an ancient ballad, and of no uncommon sort, in English villages, how does it happen that ancient Scotch ballads possess so many beauties? Or are they only sifted from heaps of rubbish like the above? If so, perhaps a collection of English might be formed by the same means. This ditty, sung to the thrum of the spinning-wheel, had its attractions; and this girl (now named Thompson), and one of the Whiteheads — I think, Sarah — when a girl, were the only persons who ever sung the ballad to my fancy.

    Another song, which my brother Isaac knew when a boy, begins —

    'There was an old ewe, who had but one horn,
    Chronomo no no none;

    —— could never keep her out of the corn.
    Turn round the wheel, my Bunny.

    The butcher came in, with his sharp knife,
    Chronomo, &c.
    And scared the old ewe almost out of her life.
    Turn, &c.

    She ground her teeth, and she mumbled her pegs,
    Chronomo, &c.
    And she ran at the butcher, and broke both his legs.
    Turn, &c.' [28] 

    This is evidently a spinning-wheel song; but perhaps of later date than the former.

    The last Sunday in March breakfasted with Mr. Rogers; visited Mr. Stothard; and having to see the Duke of Grafton at five, spent the intermediate hours in Kensington-gardens: and recollecting that a razor was to pass my chin before I went there, I sought, and found a little shop in Kensington. The barber was gone half a mile from home, to shave a gentleman. He presently came in, and throwing of his hat and wig, gave vent to his perspiration and his anger both together. The person was gone out when he got there, and he had his walk for nothing! — How abominably these things plague a poor man, and disconcert his week's work; and he has no remedy — no action for damages ! — The bald-pated, angry old man began his operations upon me; and I was not quite free from apprehensions on account of his perturbation and appearance — but trust not appearances! When he had nearly finished, he ordered his girl to wet the corner of a cloth — I wondered what he wanted with it. It was instantly applied to my face ; and though this was the first time I had had my face washed by a barber, it appeared to be his custom. These scenes remind me of 'Roderick' and his friend 'Strap.' [29]  Smollett would have made something out of it. Observed, while refreshing myself at Kensington, a tradesman's board, inscribed

    NEVERS,

    Corn Dealer; Malt, Hops, &c; Coals,

    wholesale and retail;

    Charcoal, Cheesemongery, &c.

    The proximity of charcoal and cheesemongery, looks rather whimsical.

    In our trade, when any one reads the newspapers or a book, by the neighbourly custom of sitting all in one room, and by that great privilege, of its not hindering the progress of our work, we have nothing to do, but to discuss the subject. Commumty, is perhaps the point, to which those who say that 'shoemakers are politicians,' might trace the solution of their wonder. But even a newspaper is not all politics. No one can read the daily prints without either learning, or feeling, his want of geographical knowledge. This must lead him to maps; and maps to reflection: and this reflection, unless it can be proved that it leads him to discontent, is praiseworthy, and full of pleasure to himself.

    The highest ground in London is about Newgate-street. A stone, with an old inscription, is fixed on the wall of a baker's house, in a passage leading into Paternoster-row. [30]  I was lately led, from a kind of inadvertent curiosity, to look up to see who had the honour of living on the highest ground, and found the name James Bloomfield — Wonder, if from my country?

    The brig Deane, Captain W. D. which arrived at Liverpool on Thursday, from Kentucky, with a cargo of cotton, was built on the Allegany river, in Pennsylvania, and came down the river Ohio into the Mississippi, having passed the great falls of the Ohio, and sailed a distance of nearly three thousand miles within the land. She is the first vessel, which ever came to Europe, from the western waters of the United States.— British Press, July 12, 1803. [31]

    August 4, 1804. — State of the Nation (prophetical). — We shall have one out of three; namely, either

    A sudden peace;

    A powerful continental diversion*; or,

    A tremendous attack, and war on our own shores.

    * A powerful continental diversion took place a year after writing the above: but Napoleon has now, at the battle of Austerlitz, compelled them to be quiet, and will return upon us again. I write this upon New Year's Day, 1806.

    The senseless scurrility, of the public papers, is a disgrace to the country, and to every thing like what I understand by the liberty of the press.

    Mackintosh on the Revolution of France, p. 23. [32]  — 'The deficit, or inferiority of the revenue to the expenditure, at length arose to the enormous sum of 115 millions of livres, or about 4,750,000l. annually.'

    Introduction, page 18. — 'The Revolution, whether it be beneficial or injurious, was produced only by general causes, where the conspicuous individual produced little real effect.'

    ————

    March, 1810. — Mr. Arnold, painter, of Buckingham-place, near Fitzroy-square, has an extract from the parish register of Bowes, or Brows, in Yorkshire, which records the burial of Robert Rightson and Mary Railton. The former died in a fever; the latter almost instantly, on hearing the bell toll for her lover. To this we owe the beautiful ballad of 'Edwin and Emma,' [33]  as appears likewise from the first edition of the ballad now in his hands.

    REFLECTIONS.

    I almost repine that I know nothing of astronomy. Mr. Lofft often mentions to me things relating thereto, in his letters; I wish I could understand him — 'Past one o'clock: a cloudy morning!' Thus comes in the 15th of March, 1801. That poor man, perhaps, has but eighteen-pence a night for being in the cold — to bed! to bed!

    ————

    When I think on Egyptian architecture, it seems an oak in a forest of shrubs. Time sweeps away the habitations of men — the under-works of art — as man sweeps away the underwood of a forest: but the pyramid and the oak remain. If London should sink into oblivion, or at least dwindle into a village, what will be the most imperishable thing in the ruin? The foundations of the bridges would stand a good tug against the assaults of time, and the proud cathedral would hold its elevated ruins full of owls and ivy; still to be wondered at, when the dwellings should be no more. The greatest undertakings that I know of, now going on, are the Wet Docks at the Isle of Dogs. [34]  Thirty acres of land sunk to so great a depth seems a huge attempt; but it is only digging a hole after all! If it could be possible for London to become a Babylon, the chafings and surgings of old Father Thames — for HE would not stop –– would leave no traces of labour or art in the docks; nature would soon blot out the boast of a nation, and the strong arm of the invariable tide . . . . But I was going to say, that I could almost wish for some edifice, in or near the capital, that should perpetuate the site of the city. And yet if the walls of Babylon were indeed as substantial as they are said to have been, where are they gone?

    ————

    When London-people walk out of town, like bees from a hive (only seldom on so good an errand), how entirely unacquainted they appear to be, with the warning which the rising clouds give of the approach of a shower. It looks strange, if not laughable, to see a number of well-dressed people, sauntering with the utmost composure from their homes, full in the face of a black and threatening cloud, which in ten minutes is to involve them in trouble and vexation. But though the countryman keeps his eyes on the heavens, and preserves a dry coat, he could not turn a corner, or escape a hackney coach, with the dexterity of a Londoner. Every one to his trade!

    ————

    A brother-tradesman in the City-road has inscribed over his stall,

    'MASON,

    Shoemaker and Repairer in general.'

    Well done, shopmate! 'Shoes neatly mended,' the common sign for a cobbler, you, no doubt, objected to: but you are a cobbler at last, and why should you be ashamed of it?

    ————

    I think that ambition, courage, and sensibility may 'run in the blood,' as we term it. Should any one of these qualities, or any conspicuous vice or virtue, actually belong to a family, which happens to govern a nation, such inherent quality ought to be expected in any of its branches; even if the party is not known to be of the family, or is in disguise, as is frequently represented in novels and plays. But that a hidden something, an innate nobility, a royalty by nature, should be looked for in every great personage, or person raised accidentally to power, is nonsense in itself, and it is almost criminal to propagate it as a doctrine. Mr. Home has made Norval a true Douglas, [35]  possessing his forefathers' courage; but I have read several things, which I could not now name, which, in this unnatural distortion of character, were shamefully disgusting. Perhaps this is only saying that they were not written by such men as Home, who knows what belongs to character and what to accident.

    Could not I, as a shoemaker, gather all possible accounts relating to those who have figured in the world from our trade? Was not Secretary Craggs [36]  a chip of leather? Suppose I verify the old story of Crispin? I wonder nobody has yet ridiculed me and my garret poetry: perhaps a

              Halo: Reach Multiplayer Coming To Master Chief Collection For Free, Campaign And Firefight As DLC      Cache   Translate Page      

    Halo: The Master Chief Collection launched in 2014, bundling Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4 for Xbox One. In 2015, Halo 3: ODST was added to the Collection free of charge for those who played it during its technically challenged launch period, leaving fan-favorite Halo: Reach as the only pre-Xbox One title not in the Master Chief Collection. Today, Microsoft announced it is remedying that exclusion.

    During today's Inside Xbox presentation, Microsoft and 343 Industries announced that Halo: Reach is coming to Halo: The Master Chief Collection later this year. The multiplayer suite, including PvP, Forge, and the Theater, will be provided free of charge for everyone who owns the Collection on Xbox One. Those who want to play the campaign or the popular wave-based Firefight mode will need to either subscribe to Xbox Game Pass or purchase them via a premium digital add-on.

    When it arrives, Halo: Reach will run at 60 frames per second in 4K with HDR on compatible devices. Halo: Reach is set to arrive in The Master Chief Collection later this year.


              Halo: The Master Chief Collection Coming To PC One Game At A Time      Cache   Translate Page      

    Halo: The Master Chief Collection has served as a great bundle of the earlier Halo games, bringing the beloved shooters of the past to the current generation with various enhancements. However, to this point, the bundle has been exclusive to Xbox One, seeming to go against the grain of Microsoft's recent push to put its first-party titles on both Xbox One and PC. Today, Microsoft announced that The Master Chief Collection is coming to PC by way of Steam and the Microsoft Store.

    Rather than releasing the myriad titles at once, 343 Industries is launching the games in chronological order for when the story takes place. This means that PC players will first experience Halo: Reach's campaign, multiplayer, and Firefight modes, then Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo 4. Players purchase the games individually within The Master Chief Collection as they launch, though no pricing has been announced to this point.

    343 Industries has shown strong support for the bundle since its initial launch in 2014, and it appears as though that will continue with the PC release, as the studio says each game will grow and evolve with community input. Halo: The Master Chief Collection will begin rolling out on Steam and the Microsoft Store later this year.

              Amazon and Sephora hired Lori Loughlin's Instagram-famous daughter as an influencer before the FBI charged her parents in an explosive college-admissions bribery scandal (AMZN)      Cache   Translate Page      

    olivia jade hero

    • Olivia Jade Giannulli, the Instagram-famous daughter of the "Full House" star Lori Loughlin, has been paid as an influencer by high-profile companies such as Amazon and Sephora in recent months.
    • In a September Instagram post labeled as a paid partnership with Amazon Prime Student, Giannulli highlighted the e-commerce giant's deals for college students.
    • She also has a partnership with Sephora and released a makeup palette with the beauty brand last year.
    • Giannulli's father, Mossimo Giannulli, and Loughlin were accused on Tuesday of agreeing to pay $500,000 in bribes to facilitate her and her sister's admission to the University of Southern California.

    Olivia Jade Giannulli has forged paid partnerships with high-profile brands such as Amazon, Sephora, and Direct Smile Club in recent months.

    The daughter of the "Full House" star Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli — known for founding the Mossimo fashion brand — was a paid influencer while attending the University of Southern California.

    On Tuesday, the FBI accused Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli of agreeing to pay $500,000 in bribes in exchange for having Olivia Jade and her sister, Isabella Rose, recruited on the USC crew team to facilitate their admission to USC; neither girl participates in crew.

    Olivia Jade Giannulli, who had built up a massive YouTube and Instagram following before going to USC, now has 1.3 million followers on Instagram and nearly 2 million on YouTube.

    Because of Giannulli's massive social-media presence, several brands have established paid partnerships with her. In light of the charges in the college-admissions scandal, a September Instagram post that was labeled as a paid partnership with Amazon Prime Student especially stands out.

    In the photo, Giannulli is sitting on a bed, apparently in her USC dorm room. The caption says: "Officially a college student! It's been a few weeks since I moved into my dorm and I absolutely love it. I got everything I needed from Amazon with @primestudent and had it all shipped to me in just two-days. #ad #primestudent#allonamazon."

    Giannulli also told Teen Vogue in September that she "found pretty much everything" for her room on Amazon.

    "It was easy to find it all in one place, and there were so many options to choose from," she said. "I was also able to use my Prime Student membership and received all the items in two days with free shipping."

    Amazon did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment. Giannulli has not posted any paid content promoting Amazon Prime Student on Instagram since September.

    Giannulli appears to have a more active partnership with the beauty brand Sephora, posting several pictures labeled as paid partnerships, most recently in mid-January. She also collaborated with Sephora on a powder palette released in December.

    Sephora did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment and information about whether its partnership with Giannulli would continue.

    Other paid partnerships on Giannulli's Instagram account in recent months include SmileDirectClub, Clinique, and Lulus. The three brands did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.

    A post shared by OLIVIA JADE (@oliviajade) on Aug 17, 2018 at 12:14pm PDT on

    Giannulli's Instagram comments were flooded on Tuesday with discussions about the charges against her parents.

    olivia jade

    "Maybe you should come up with a new palette called 'jailhouse dew,'" one comment on her latest Sephora-sponsored Instagram post said.

    "Can I have dibs on your lamp when you get the boot from USC?" a comment on the post paid for by Amazon Prime Student said.

    "This has not aged well," another comment on the post said.

    Representatives for Loughlin said on Tuesday that they did not have further information. Olivia Jade Giannulli did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.

    USC did not respond to Business Insider's request for comment but said in a statement on Twitter that it had not been accused of wrongdoing and was "reviewing its admissions processes broadly to ensure that such actions do not occur going forward."

              FXBTG Financial chases its dream 'indomitably' from NZ's Financial Service Providers' Register as at least 3 overseas regulators issue warnings      Cache   Translate Page

    By Gareth Vaughan

    A company registered in New Zealand to provide financial adviser services, broking and custodial services and trade foreign exchange on behalf of others with a Cayman Islands parent company operating from a residential address in Auckland's Mt Roskill.

    That may all sound a bit unusual. But in reality it's just another entity registered on New Zealand's problematic Financial Service Providers' Register (FSPR). 

    This one's called FXBTG Financial Ltd, whose website says; "We chase our dream indomitably."

    Registered as a New Zealand company as well as being registered on the FSPR, FXBTG Financial was brought to interest.co.nz's attention last week by a reader.

    The reader had previously contacted the Financial Markets Authority (FMA) to draw the regulator's attention to FXBTG Financial, suggesting its website - plus clone websites in Hong Kong and China - in Chinese - are "full of false and misleading information." 

    A response from the FMA to the reader said; "We have now assessed the information provided and advise that in this case we will not be taking any further action at this point. However, we will use the information you have provided as part of our on-going monitoring of the financial services sector."

    The FMA has powers to direct the Registrar of the FSPR at the Companies Office to deregister and/or prevent businesses and individuals from registering on the FSPR. The FMA can do this if it believes a company is creating a false or misleading impression to investors that the business provides financial services in NZ and is regulated under NZ law. The law also provides for deregistration if registration has, will have, or is likely to have the effect of damaging the integrity or reputation of NZ’s financial markets or NZ’s law or regulatory arrangements.

    At least 3 warnings from overseas regulators

    Interest.co.nz has found three warnings from overseas regulators about FXBTG Financial. It has featured on the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission's (SFC) "alert" list since November 2017. The alert list features entities that have come to the attention of the SFC because they are unlicensed in Hong Kong and are believed to be, or to have been, targeting Hong Kong investors or claim to have an association with Hong Kong.

     In October last year the Central Bank of Ireland issued a press release about FXBTG Financial, describing it as an unauthorised investment firm that's "not authorised by the Central Bank as an investment firm, investment business firm, or to provide investment advice."

    "It is a criminal offence for an unauthorised firm/person to provide financial services in Ireland that would require an authorisation under the relevant legislation which the Central Bank is the responsible body for enforcing. Consumers should be aware, that if they deal with a firm/person who is not authorised, they are not eligible for compensation from the Investor Compensation Scheme," the Central Bank of Ireland said.

    Additionally Denmark's Financial Supervisory Authority has FXBTG Financial on a list of warnings issued by financial supervisory authorities in European Union countries.

    Companies Office records list Garci Capital of the Cayman Islands as FXBTG Financial's shareholder. It's director is listed as Li Xiaomin, who property records also list as the owner of FXBTG Financial's registered office and address for service. This is 10 McGregor Street, Mt Roskill (pictured above, right), over which property records also show ASB holds a mortgage.

    'A New Zealand government accredited financial services provider'

    Interest.co.nz called FXBTG Financial's phone number three times on Friday. Each time the phone rang and rang until eventually going dead. The same thing happened when we called on Monday morning. However, a fifth call on Monday afternoon was answered. The man who answered, speaking limited English, said the manager, "Alice," was out and he did not work for FXBTG Financial. He took a message and said he'd have the manager call. She is yet to do so.

    One FXBTG Financial Chinese language website here notes, in an English translation, that FXBTG Financial is "a New Zealand government accredited financial services provider." As trading products it lists foreign exchange, precious metals, crude oil, shares, and digital currency. It also carries a warning that contracts for difference, or CFDs, are high risk products.

    A Google search for Garci Capital only brought up the confusing blurb below.

    FMA 'engaging with' FXBTG Financial's director

    FSPR records show FXBTG Financial first registered on November 11, 2013 and reregistered on November 21, 2018. So what happened?

    A Companies Office spokeswoman told interest.co.nz that, after visits to FXBTG Financial's business address and subsequent correspondence, Registrar of Financial Service Providers Ross van der Schyff was satisfied FXBTG Financial was not in the business of providing financial services and thus should be deregistered.

    "During the objection period, an objection to the deregistration was lodged, however, sufficient evidence was not provided during the objection period to show that FXBTG was in the business of providing financial services. The Registrar remained satisfied that deregistration was appropriate and the financial service provider was deregistered under section 18(1)(b) of the Financial Service Providers (Registration and Dispute Resolution) Act 2008 on 19 October 2018," the Companies Office spokeswoman said.

    "FXBTG commenced proceedings to appeal the deregistration initiated by the Registrar. Information provided with the appeal documents were sufficient to show that the financial service provider was in the business of providing financial services at the time it was deregistered. The Registrar therefore reregistered FXBTG on the grounds that the Registrar was satisfied that FXBTG was still in the business of providing a financial service at the time of deregistration (Section 22 of the Act). FXBTG was reregistered on the FSPR on 21 November 2018. As a result of the reregistration, FXBTG ceased proceedings."

    The Companies Office is under the Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment (MBIE) umbrella.

    An FMA spokesman said the FMA has received complaints about FXBTG Financial.

    "At the time those complaints were received, MBIE were going through the process of de-registering FXBTG from the FSPR. With FXBTG being re-registered, the FMA is currently engaging with the director of FXBTG," the FMA spokesman said.

    Problems with the FSPR

    The FSPR is like a phone directory for the financial services sector. A company being registered on it doesn't mean it's actually regulated or licensed in NZ.

    Anyone providing a financial service such as insurers, banks, fund managers and financial advisers, must be registered on the FSPR, which is operated by MBIE's Companies Office. The FSPR records the name, address and financial dispute resolution service membership of the provider, along with the services it's registered to provide and any licences it may have.

    Trouble is the FSPR is open to exploitation by overseas based people with nefarious intentions. That’s because a company can register on the FSPR if it has a place of business in NZ, regardless of where in the world its financial services are targeted or provided. This means entities can, and have, set up superficial operations in NZ through virtual offices, or by leasing an office and perhaps employing a person to provide back-office services.

    These firms typically register to provide financial services that don't require licensing in NZ, such as foreign exchange, or forex, services. There's no pre-vetting by a NZ regulator, and they usually don't tend to offer financial services within NZ. These entities can, however, use their NZ registration overseas to give a false impression that they are actually regulated in NZ and trade off this country's good name.

    In 2017 the FMA told interest.co.nz it had received enquiries about NZ financial service providers from 83 countries, with 340 misconduct reports received from overseas about companies registered on the FSPR. The FMA now publishes online resources about the FSPR in Chinese, Malay and Arabic as these languages reflect the regions of the world representing the biggest number of complaints received from overseas by the FMA.

    The Government is planning reforms to the FSPR through the Financial Services Legislation Amendment Bill currently working its way through Parliament. 

    “Some mainly offshore-controlled entities have been 'free-riding' off New Zealand’s reputation for sound financial markets regulation by using their registration to imply that they are actively regulated in New Zealand when that is not the case," Commerce and Consumer Affairs Minister Kris Faafoi said when the Government issued a consultation paper in April last year. (My dissection of the Government's plan is here).

              Dior exhibition extended due to “unprecedented demand”      Cache   Translate Page      
    #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

    The V&A has confirmed that it will be extending its sell-out ‘Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams’ exhibition after tickets for the entire run sold out three weeks after opening.

    The Dior exhibition, which opened on February 2 was originally schedule to run until July 14, and now will be extended by seven weeks to Sunday, September 1.

    The London museum knew that it was going to be a success following strong pre-sales, however, it didn’t foresee selling out all remaining pre-bookable tickets for the five-month run within 19 days of opening.

    To-date, 121,566 visitors have experienced the exhibition since it opened in February.

    Tristram Hunt, director of the V&A, said in a statement: “In 1947, Christian Dior changed the face of fashion, creating a lasting legacy that continues to inspire today. The V&A has a history of staging revelatory fashion exhibitions, and there is always a hugely engaged audience for these.

    #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

    “We knew that Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams would be popular, but we have been overwhelmed by the phenomenal visitor response to-date. I would like to thank our visitors who have gone to such great lengths to see this extraordinary exhibition so far. I am delighted that we can extend the run, ensuring that as many people as possible have the chance to see it before it closes.”

    V&A extends run of Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams’ exhibition

    Throughout the extended run, the V&A will release additional exhibition tickets on the 15th of each month for the month ahead, while a limited number of tickets are available to purchase daily at 10am from the V&A’s grand entrance on a first-come, first-served basis.

    The V&A’s ‘Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams’ is the most comprehensive exhibition ever staged in the UK on the House of Dior and the museum’s biggest fashion exhibition since Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty in 2015.

    The exhibition spans from 1947 to the present day, tracing the history and impact of one of the 20th century’s most influential couturiers, and the six artistic directors who have succeeded him, Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and Maria Grazia Chiuri and features more than 200 rare haute couture pieces, including couture gowns worn by Princess Margaret and Jennifer Lawrence.

    Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams will now run at the V&A until September 1.

              Eurocis Düsseldorf: How and why brick and mortar retail must go digital      Cache   Translate Page      
    #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

    How can brick and mortar stores benefit from digitisation? This was the dominating question at the Eurocis trade fair for retail technology in Düsseldorf, which took place in February. More than ever, new solutions focus on the benefits for customers and retail.

    Implementation is the new motto

    In recent years, IT fairs such as Eurocis tended to put new topics on the agenda, indicating a pace of digitisation that scared retailers. Omnichannel, mobile commerce, mobile payment, artificial intelligence... all these buzzwords have been haunting retail landscapes for some time now and are far from having been implemented. Therefore, a cheerful message from Eurocis is: There is no new super hot topic. This means that the industry is working broadly on the implementation of all the new possibilities and on executing the first "proof of concepts".

    Blackbox brick and mortar stores

    The big problem so far has been how to digitise stores. For example, how to track customers’ in store behaviour and which products they try but not buy? How to digitise product locations? One solution is the use of robots. MetraLabs presented a mobile robot that travels through the store at night and uses RFID technology to count products. It also recognises if any products are missing and whether they are in the right location. German fashion chain Adler is already using it, taking about three to four hours to complete its nightly mission. "This is the first step towards store digitisation," explains Dr. Andreas Bley of MetraLabs, and the mandatory prerequisite for using artificial intelligence, for instance.

    Collecting customer data through facial recognition

    Facial recognition will make its entry into brick and mortar stores - but probably more discreetly than previously thought and due to privacy policy guidelines, more anonymously. New hardware is not required as this work is increasingly being carried out by already existing in-store security cameras. An accompanying software detects age, gender, mood, fashion style, hairstyle, hair colour, clothing and brand logos of customers as well as their paths and behaviour in the store. "We can't identify the people, we can only recognise what a person is doing and whether they have been to the store before", explains Bianca van der Woude of Great Circle. Only if the data is connected to a loyalty card, the person becomes identifiable. But this requires the customer’s consent

    More efficient staff and self-service checkouts

    With its idea, Re/Act wants to promote communication between different sales people in the store and has developed an in-store messenger service that can be accessed via smartwatches, tablets or other devices. This should save time walking around, which can instead be used to take better care of customers. Cash registers too are becoming increasingly mobile through mobile payment terminals or tablets for sales staff. However, this has to be linked to security systems and customers have to be ready to show a proof of purchase when exiting the store. In the future, convenience stores such as petrol stations may even no longer require personnel and function fully automatically. There were examples at the trade fair too, such as the Nanostore from AiFi. As big as a standard container, it could easily be used as a pop-up store, for example.

    #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

    AI is one of the big topics of the future

    According to the EHI Trend Study, artificial intelligence (AI) is currently the most important topic of the future for retailers, even though it was not even on the horizon during the last trend survey two years ago. Hamburg-based company Blue Yonder specialises in AI in retail environments and uses it, for example, when optimising prices. "It is about collating internal data, own pricing strategies and external data - such as the weather or the price developments of competitors - and to adjust automated prices at any time based on it," says Dr. Ansgar Thiede of Blue Yonder. This means that sales can be monitored better throughout the season and thus ruinous price wars avoided at the end of it.

    According to Blue Yonder, order management will also be increasingly handled via AI, with logarithms forecasting sales quantities and calculating, for example, whether it is more economical to restock a warehouse or to reduce quantities and to split production slots for this. Using AI, these calculations can be performed for every single product, in every size and colour. "These considerations are so complex that they are only possible in an automated way", says Thiede. Ultimately, AI wants to help fashion retailers to support their gut feeling with value-driven analysis, especially in view of the increasing speed of collection cycles and processes.

    Digitisation as a growth market

    Retail technology is a trending topic. Eurocis announced an increase in exhibitor numbers by four percent to 482 exhibitors. According to the organisers, there have also been more international exhibitors, with numbers rising from 29 percent last year to 39 percent this year. In total, about 12,000 visitors were expected. The next EuroCIS will take place together with store construction fair EuroShop from 16 to 20 February 2020.

    Delta Boeing 777 200LR in flight_0

    • From now until April 3, Delta's three main credit cards are offering their highest-ever new-cardholder bonuses.
    • Even if you've had one of these cards before, you can still open a different card.
    • We break down the differences between the three cards — read on to see which is best for you.
    • You can also read our guide to the best credit cards of 2019 overall.

    One of the fastest ways to get a ton of frequent-flyer miles or rewards points quickly is to open a credit card and earn its new member bonus. This is arguably the best way to boost your stock of points and get you closer to a big award trip.

    There are two key things to keep in mind when opening a card for the welcome bonus.

    The first is whether an offer on a card is the highest you expect to be able to earn.

    The second is whether the card offers enough ongoing value for it to be worth keeping after the first year.

    For anyone who flies Delta Air Lines — even occasionally — right now is an ideal time to open a new card because both of those considerations are met.

    Until April 3, Delta's three main consumer credit cards are offering their highest-ever publicly available welcome offers.

    Plus, the three cards each offer a ton of ongoing value, whether you're a casual flyer or a hard-core Delta loyalist.

    Read on to learn more about the three cards, and see which one is best for you.

    Best for the casual Delta flyer: The Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express

    Welcome offer: 60,000 Delta SkyMiles when you spend $2,000 in the first three months. Plus, get a $50 statement credit when you make any Delta purchase in the first three months.

    The Gold Delta SkyMiles card is the best of the three for the casual Delta flyer, someone who finds themself on the airline a couple of times a year, but doesn't fly regularly enough to use the heftier cards' perks (more on that later).

    One of the biggest perks: The card offers a free first checked bag for the cardholder and up to eight people on the same reservation. Delta charges $30 each way for a checked bag, so this can save up to $60 per person on a round-trip itinerary.

    Cardholders and travel companions also get Zone 1 priority boarding. This means you can board the plane sooner, giving you plenty of time to settle into your seat or find overhead space for any carry-on luggage. Zone 1 is after most Delta elite frequent flyers and extra-legroom passengers, but is usually within the first half of passengers to board.

    Other perks include discounted day passes to Delta Sky Club airport lounges — $29 per day pass — as well as a 20% discount on in-flight purchases (in the form of a statement credit), such as food or drinks, and no foreign transaction fees.

    Like the other Delta cards, the Gold SkyMiles card earns 2x Delta SkyMiles on eligible Delta purchases, and 1x mile on everything else.

    The Gold Delta card has an annual fee of $95, which is waived the first year. This is a great value considering the perks, not to mention the welcome bonus — 60,000 SkyMiles is more than enough for two round-trip flights across the United States, and is just shy of enough for a round-trip to Europe. The card normally offers 30,000 SkyMiles.

    Best for more regular flyers: The Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express

    Welcome offer: 75,000 Delta SkyMiles and 5,000 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) when you spend $3,000 in the first three months. Plus, get a $100 statement credit when you make any Delta purchase in the first three months.

    If you fly somewhat regularly, the Platinum Delta SkyMiles card is a better option, thanks to an often-overlooked benefit that can completely cover the $195 annual fee each year.

    The Platinum Delta card has most of the same perks as the Gold version, like priority boarding, free checked bags, 2x SkyMiles on Delta purchases and discounted Sky Club access.

    However, the Platinum Delta comes with a huge perk — it's so useful that I'm planning on keeping my card indefinitely.

    After your first year with the card, you'll get an annual domestic companion pass each year at your card-member anniversary. A Delta companion pass is essentially a buy-one-get-one-free coupon. When you book an economy-class flight for yourself anywhere within the continental US, you can get a second ticket for free, other than minimal taxes and fees.

    The companion pass completely blows away the annual fee for me, which is $195 and isn't waived the first year. My wife and I fly domestically at least a few times a year, whether it's to visit family or friends, or to go on vacation. So I save my companion pass until we're taking a flight together that costs more than $195 each. You can read more about the Delta companion pass benefit here.

    While you don't get a companion pass the first year, the 75,000 SkyMiles from the welcome offer more than outweigh the annual fee — that's enough to fly from the US to just about anywhere in Europe round-trip.

    The MQMs in the welcome bonus can be a boost for anyone looking to earn or keep Delta Medallion frequent-flyer status. Plus, each year that you spend $25,000 or more on the card, you earn a bonus 10,000 SkyMiles, 10,000 MQMs, and have the Medallion Qualifying Dollar (MQD) requirement for most elite status levels waived.

    When you have Medallion status, you can enjoy things like free upgrades to first class or extra-legroom seats whenever you fly, subject to availability.

    Best for Delta Medallion frequent flyers: The Delta Reserve® Credit Card from American Express

    Welcome offer: 75,000 Delta SkyMiles and 5,000 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) when you spend $5,000 in the first three months. 

    The Delta Reserve card has a higher, $450 annual fee, but it has a few additional perks that can make it worthwhile for some frequent flyers. 

    Like the Platinum SkyMiles card, it offers a domestic companion pass. However, that pass can be used for first-class tickets, not just economy.

    Additionally, the Delta Reserve offers full access to Delta Sky Club airport lounges whenever the cardholder is flying with Delta (the Gold and Platinum SkyMiles cards offer discounts on single-access Sky Club passes).

    The Reserve has one other major perk, which can be crucial for travelers who hold Delta Medallion elite status.

    Delta Medallion members are eligible for complimentary, space-available upgrades to first class and Delta One on flights within the US and the region, including Mexico and Central America, and extra-legroom seats on international flights.

    Upgrades clear in hierarchical order based on a number of factors, including each passenger's Medallion status level, the original fare class they booked, and a few other factors. The first tiebreaker for people with the same Medallion level and fare class: whether they hold the Delta Reserve card. Reserve cardholders will be prioritized over those without it. If there's only one seat left and two members are still tied and both have the Reserve, it continues down the list of tiebreakers.

    For travelers who fly a lot and frequently find themselves one or two upgrade-list spots away from getting that first-class seat, holding the Reserve can be extremely valuable.

              The best credit card rewards, bonuses, and perks of 2019      Cache   Translate Page

    Best Credit Cards

    • Credit cards with good rewards programs and great new member offers make it easier than ever to rack up a lot of points.
    • The best credit card in 2019 remains the Chase Sapphire Reserve, the reigning champ since its release in 2019, because it has a great sign-up bonus and a travel rewards system that makes it easy to collect points.
    • A close second is the American Express® Gold Card, which has a lower annual fee, lucrative dining rewards, and various statement credits to offset its annual fee.
    • Also worth considering: the Delta Platinum SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express, which is offering its highest-ever public bonus until April 3: 75,000 SkyMiles after you spend $3,000 in the first three months.

    Since the 2016 launch of the Sapphire Reserve credit card by J.P. Morgan Chase, rewards credit cards have exploded into a mainstream obsession. 

    This was particularly evident among Millennials and Gen X-ers, as they jumped into the once-obscure world of credit card rewards and bonuses, drawn by the lure of high sign-up bonuses, special perks, and the opportunity to use points for free flights, hotel stays, and even first class tickets.

    Now, more than two years after the debut of the Sapphire Reserve, what’s the best move for someone seeking to boost their stock of credit card points and frequent flyer miles? Here are some of the top credit cards currently available, based on sign-up bonuses, rewards earned on everyday spending, benefits, and overall value.

    But first, a word of warning: Credit cards play a big role in maintaining a healthy credit profile and score. Make sure you’re aware of the impact that opening a new card can have, especially if you’re planning to apply for a mortgage or finance a major purchase anytime soon.

    It’s also important to practice financial discipline when targeting credit card rewards — paying your balances off in full each month, making payments on time, and not spending more than you can afford to pay is the best course of action.
