“I have picked up Michael Kors jumpsuits and apparel from stores in Dubai and elsewhere, but never accessories,” says designer Deepika Govind as we enter the store that spans 1,500 sq ft and has countless shelves lined with bags, watches, shoes and ready to wear apparel. You can miss the store. Hints of fuchsia beckon you tantalisingly as soon as you enter Emporio and cross the fountain..

It’s hot, sweaty; a guy’s bumping into you. [The singer] is maybe a bit off pitch. The imperfection draws you to the experience.”. It demanded equal treatment at all levels of government, full integration with traffic flow and that the voices of cyclists be weighed equally by public agencies alongside other transit interests. Fundamentally, the document was a repudiation of the city entire, decades long approach to bikes. The clip was viewed more than 70,000 times in a week, generating equal parts celebration, controversy and surprise: The riders covered four exits faster than cars stuck in crawling traffic.

Unstreitig ist offenbar die Notwendigkeit von Social Media Guidelines. Nur:. Parking spot savers started to pop up across South Boston the day after the snowstorm this weekend. It’s grueling work to carve out a vehicle out of a thick pile of snow so locals have traditionally used orange cones or any grabbable item from the home to reserve the spot afterward. The unofficial reward for shoveling out a spot in a neighborhood notorioius for lack of parking is to earn the right to the spot for some amount of time.

There are parallels between Islam and Nazism that we are taught to ignore because it does not conform with the tolerance level we have all been taught. Schools have been teaching students for 30 years to be tolerant of others of different religions, races and lifestyles. Some schools have taken the Holocaust out of their curriculum because it offends Muslims.

Fishing and Weather is HOT!!!

Friday, August 13th, 2010

Right now the mullet have moved into full swing and so has the fishing.  Everywhere inshore people are catching good size Flounder and Drum.  The Spanish move through the cut at the first incoming tide and are busting the mullet schools.  Float a rig in the current, use a good leader and hold on.  For Flounder rig a mullet with a Carolina Rig and cast into the break points of the current.  For the Drum, rig a mullet and cast it into the mouth of a small overflow area.  When the tides are dropping you will find the Reds coming to feed.

Brexit puts cultural links to the test

Brexit puts cultural links to the test

Stop almost any German in the street, and mention the names Pomeroy and Winterbottom.

In an instant, they will recognise the central characters of Der 90. Geburtstag, a British comedy sketch from the 1960s, shown every New Year’s Eve on national television.

German culture has long been saturated with British influence, and some of the UK’s greatest artistic exports, from David Bowie to Christopher Isherwood, have flocked to the country’s capital, Berlin.

Jessica’s arrival in the capital has also been a boon to her German boss, Christian Bracht.

Mr Bracht, who owns a group of magazine titles, many of which are published in English, says he “loves to work with Brits”.

“We need native English speakers, and they really work on a very high creative level,” he explains. “They think outside the box, which Germans are not used to.

“Most of the Brits who work for me were crying.”

‘More in common’The evidence of the British presence in Berlin’s artistic community is apparent on the 15th floor penthouse of the Waldorf Astoria hotel, where the Sleek brand is based during Berlin Fashion Week.

Young graduates from some of Britain’s best art schools mill around, picking at the gourmet canapes, or getting a manicure while admiring the panoramic view.

According to Mr Bracht, the ease with which they integrate into the city’s cultural scene is no coincidence.

Brits and Germans in fashion, he says, are “swimming in the same artistic pool”.

“Berlin and London have more in common than [any] other two fashion hubs in Europe,” he says.

British fashion, he adds, is “a little bit more punk, and the Berlin fashion is a little bit more street style”. Both cities are focused on wearable, practical pieces, as opposed to the more experimental and abstract styles in Paris and Milan.

This link, Mr Bracht says, cannot be destroyed by Brexit.

“The European arts scene comes together here in Berlin.

“All the idiots who campaigned for Leave should have come to Berlin to see how well it works.”Canada Goose Outlet

‘Strong links’Just 20 miles down the road, another leading figure in the local arts scene is less jubilant about British involvement in his industry.

Charlie Woebcken is the chief executive of the historic Babelsberg film studios, one of the oldest in Europe, where the likes of Fritz Lang and Billy Wilder all but invented modern cinema.

The cavernous Marlene Dietrich Hall, at the centre of the studio’s vast campus in the centre of Potsdam, is where classics such as Metropolis and The Blue Angel were filmed.

But now, despite some high profile clients like Steven Spielberg and Roman Polanski, the sound stage is often quiet.

Generous cash rebates handed out by the UK government to British studios have led to a boom in the country’s film industry, at the expense of German companies such as Babelsberg, who find it hard to compete.

“We have always been a bit jealous [of the British model],” he says.

The volatility of the pound in the aftermath of Brexit has landed a further blow.

“If Brexit really happens it won’t be good for the British film history, but in the short term the pound is weaker than the euro, and this will probably lead to an advantage for Britain, because it is cheaper to produce in Britain,” says Mr Woebcken.
