May, 2015 Update - ALL IS WELL

Chris and I went to see Dr. Goy today - all went well.

I had my scans last week, and I had possession of them prior to the visit, so I got to see 'unremarkable' and 'unchanged' - the words I love to see on those scans!

It's still great to see Dr. Goy, and he's untiring in his pursuit of a cure, of helping, of building out the work he's doing, etc.

Thanks for all the support, thoughts, and prayers; they're clearly working!

I do ask for prayers for a few friends who are fighting MCL right now (Jim and Rich specifically), and for a friend who lost the fight about a month ago (Greg). All have/are fighting valiantly, and all have tremendous faith and support, but could always use some help. For Greg, he leaves behind a wife, a daughter entering college next year, and a son going into junior year of high school. His passing shocked the heck out of me, as he cruised through R-HyperCVAD, but his Auto SCT hit him hard. For anyone doing chemo treatment, don't fight/'tough out' the fevers, the sick, etc - get to the hospital if you hit the marks your onc tells you about.

Many thanks,
John

Thank you for the update. Glad to hear you're 100%. My aunt was diagnosed with MCL back in 2009 and went through more or less the same treatment as you. I've been following your blog since then. All the best.

May, 2014 Update - delayed entry! - ALL IS WELL

Apologies to those following the blog for my delayed entry. I met with Dr. Goy in May, and all was well! Back again in a year. Many thanks for checking in!

I really hope that anyone that has MCL, and that looks to this blog, can find hope and a positive outlook for fighting this. I'm now 8+ years out, and that's from Stage 4B diagnosis! I did 8 rounds of R-Hyper CVAD, had multiple transfusions, took a number of trips to the Emergency room for fevers, etc. but I did it - with the help of friends and family, and nurses and doctors. And i still say that it really wasn't that bad!

I also know there are many that have had a harder time at it, and that have relapsed and are working very hard to beat this; and for those friends, I pray for your remission. Jim - this is particularly for you - keep at it, you are an inspiration to many.

Finally, there are some that have succumbed to MCL, or MM, or some other cancer, and for those friends, and their family, our deepest condolences, thoughts, and prayers. Tina (RIP), Andy and family, this is for you, and we're blessed to have gotten to know Tina as much as we did.

From Tina's (and Adam's) service:

Do you live your DASH?

I read of a man who stood to speak
At the funeral of a friend
He referred to the dates on her tombstone
From the beginning...to the end.

He noted that first came her date of birth
And spoke the following date with tears,
But he said what mattered most of all
Was the dash between those years. (1934 -1998)

For that dash represents all the time
That she spent alive on earth...
And now only those who loved her
Know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not, how much we own;
The cars...the house...the cash,
What matters is how we live and love
And how we spend our dash.

So think about this long and hard...
Are there things you'd like to change?
For you never know how much time is left,
That can still be rearranged.

If we could just slow down enough
To consider what's true and real,
And always try to understand
The way other people feel.

And be less quick to anger,
And show appreciation more
And love the people in our lives
Like we've never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect,
And more often wear a smile..
Remembering that this special dash
Might only last a little while.

So, when your eulogy's being read
With your life's actions to rehash...
Would you be proud of the things they say
About how you spent your dash?

MCL Info

I've put this in Background, and in Treatments, as it's a great link.

LLS created this excellent reference item on MCL, with a great note on treatment - "There has been noteworthy progress in the treatment of
MCL over the last decades":

http://www.lls.org/content/nationalcontent/resourcecenter/freeeducationmaterials/lymphoma/pdf/mantlecelllymphoma.pdf

Thanks to all of the doctors and nurses researching and trying, for all of the patients undergoing clinical trials, for the caregivers that keep us going, and for the support, thoughts, hopes and prayers of friends and family.

Hackensack University Seminar on Cell Therapy and Interventional Immunology

My oncologist, Dr Goy, is hosting a seminar at Hackensack University Medical Center, on Cell Therapy and Interventional Immunology.

The summary from the site is:
Join us for this exciting program with the nation’s top cancer experts for a review of the latest developments and implications of cell therapy and interventional immunology in the oncology setting for solid and liquid tumors.

There is a need to bring clinicians and scientists together to collaboratively discuss innovative translational research programs and controversial management and treatments to improve efficacies in hematological/solid malignancies. This conference is designed for hematologists, oncologists, physicians, scientists, and medical professionals involved in cancer research, diagnosis and treatment.

While this is clearly not a layman's seminar, I encourage anyone that's reading this, that has an oncologist, or knows of a research scientist, etc working in this space, to attend, as these are the targeted treatments that we need to treat, and cure cancers.

5/20/13 Update - All is well (7+ year remission)

We (Chris and I) visited Dr. Goy today, and all is well!

We had the reports from my recent CT scan, so we questioned sites that remained unchanged/unremarkable, making sure we understood what everything meant. I also had a colonoscopy and endoscopy recently, as MCL tends to invade the gut, and i hadn't had a scan since 2007 - those were clear, and Dr. Goy was happy, sending me on my way for another year. But not before we talked about current treatment protocols, and the challenges for patients, as there still isn't one standard treatment. The protocol I received was R HyperCVAD, and has been proven to be quite effective, especially in aggressive forms of the cancer.

I have friends that I've met through this journey that have been treated, and have relapsed, and are seeking new treatment options, including Stem Cell Transplants, which, while very challenging, have amazing results. Several of these friends have already taken clinical trial drugs, and for that, I'm ever so thankful and in awe. It's the drugs that are currently in clinical trials that we hope will bring a cure to many of these diseases.

Many thanks for all the thoughts, prayers and support from friends and family. Please keep it up, it's surely working; and please keep in your thoughts and prayers those who have passed, and those who continue to fight.

Have a great summer!
John

MCL Article by Dr Goy

A Conversation About Mantle Cell Lymphoma with Dr. Andre Goy
Chairman and Director of the John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center

http://www.focusonmcl.org/content/conversation-about-mantle-cell-lymphoma-dr-andre-goy

Would you describe mantle cell lymphoma?

Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), which was only officially designated as a separate entity in 1994, is not a common subtype of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL); it represents only about six percent of NHL. MCL often has characteristics of both indolent and aggressive forms of NHL. MCL can have a rather indolent course during which most patients have limited symptoms; however, most patients relapse and become chemoresistant over time. Such challenges have led to a lot a great deal of innovation over the last twenty years resulting in significant improvement in outcomes.

Patients with MCL typically present with lymph node enlargement, an enlarged spleen, elevated white blood cell counts, and almost all patients have gastrointestinal and bone marrow involvement. However, only one-third of the patients at diagnosis have lymphoma-related symptoms (i.e., fevers and night sweats, weight loss). The diagnosis of MCL is made through pathology testing which shows characteristic morphology, immunophenotype (i.e., cells expressing B-cell mature markers CD19, CD20, and co-expressing a T-cell marker CD5 while MCL cells are found to be CD10 and CD23-negative) and typically requires evidence of overexpression of cyclin D1 or t(11;14) gene translocation.

How is MCL typically treated?

The treatment of MCL has evolved dramatically over the last two decades. Therapy is selected based on whether patients are eligible for intensive therapy based on their clinical presentation and age, given that the median age of diagnosis is the mid to late sixties.

Patients who are eligible for intensive strategies can receive either classic Hyper-CVAD (cyclophosphamide, vincristine, doxorubicin, and dexamethasone) + rituximab (Rituxan) alternating with cytarabine and methotrexate or induction therapy followed by autologous stem cell transplants as consolidation therapy. This approach has led to a dramatic improvement of median progression-free survival (PFS) in excess of five years versus 18 to 24 months with standard R-CHOP (rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisolone).

For patients who are older or have other conditions that would prevent dose-intensive strategies, there is a far more effective therapy than R-CHOP alone. Recent data looking at maintenance rituximab post-induction with R-CHOP show a clear improvement over R-CHOP alone, setting a new standard. In addition bendamustine (Treando) + rituximab which was compared to R-CHOP as frontline treatment as part of the Study Group Indolent Lymphomas (StiL) trial has shown significant improvement in PFS, although there was no difference in overall survival. The reported toxicity profile also makes it an appealing option in MCL. The difference in PFS was not observed in patients with follicular lymphoma in the same trial.

There are also a number of novel therapies being developed in the relapsed/refractory setting. These agents are currently being investigated for integration in frontline treatment regimens, in combination with chemotherapy, or as maintenance.

What are the main areas of research in MCL?

Though the results for frontline have clearly improved in MCL, most patients still relapse and become chemoresistant over time. There are two main topics for MCL research: (1) a number of new biological agents are rapidly changing the horizon for MCL treatment, especially with this disease which patients typically respond poorly with chemotherapy, and (2) a better understanding of the biology of MCL, especially a growing awareness of the impressive heterogeneity among patients, which might help stratify patients better for treatment in the future.

Regarding novel therapies, bortezomib (Velcade) became the first U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved drug ever in relapsed/refractory MCL and is currently being tested as part of induction strategies with chemoimmunotherapy regimens. In the European Union (EU), temsirolimus (Torisel) is the only drug approved in relapsed/refractory MCL. Recently, a number of very exciting compounds have emerged in MCL, such as lenalidomide (Revlimid) and ibrutinib. In a study of patients who were previously treated (median of four prior therapies, range two-ten), treatment with lenalidomide resulted in a response rate of 29 percent with durable benefit shown by a median duration of response in excess of sixteen months, which is really impressive in that setting.

Ibrutinib, a BTK inhibitor that targets the B-cell receptor signaling pathway, has shown response rates of 60 percent to 70 percent in patients with MCL, with a complete response rate of 20 percent, a rate that appears to increase over time. Lenalidomide and ibrutinib, both oral compounds, have very easy toxicity profiles and are good candidates for integration in frontline treatment regimens.

Regarding the progress made in understanding the biology of MCL, our goal is to identify better predictive markers of MCL. There are a number of prognostic factors that have been reported in MCL that can help physicians to some extent predict the outcome among patients. Yet, none of these factors help physicians make a decision for an individual patient. Mounting evidence suggests a great heterogeneity among MCL patients (with similar clinical features) as illustrated by gene expression profiling studies (proliferation signature) and a number of other technological approaches. Practically, there are 5 percent to 10 percent of patients with MCL who have a very low-grade indolent course; they have high white blood cell counts, an enlarged spleen, and few or no enlarged lymph nodes. These patients are much more clinically and genetically stable (ie, they have much fewer secondary abnormalities) than patients with more aggressive disease. Patients with low-grade indolent disease are generally monitored and treated differently than patients with more aggressive MCL and are likely not enrolled in standard clinical trials. Patients with aggressive, or “classic MCL” are usually treated as intensively as possible to achieve a deep response, which translates into a better outcome. Achieving a complete remission (CR), and even better, a molecular CR appears to be critical, and this endpoint is being investigated in upcoming EU trials.

Please discuss the importance of clinical trials, and if are there any specific trials you wish to address?

The great improvement of outcomes in MCL over the past twenty years is a great example of the impact of clinical trials. Because MCL is such a challenging disease to treat, both physicians and the medical community at large, as well as patients, have been more willing to try novel options, which is why we have made so much progress in MCL. With the number of exciting options and novel therapies, it is becoming even more critical for physicians to encourage patients to participate in clinical trials. Current trials are investigating the use of novel agents either in combination or as maintenance post-conventional therapies to reduce the risk of relapse and for continued improvement our patients’ outcomes.

What advice would you give to a newly diagnosed patient?

Most newly diagnosed patients do not have a lot of symptoms, so it is really challenging for a patient to accept the idea that they need very intensive therapy. It is important for patients to look at all the treatment options including intense strategies that clearly lead to deeper responses which will likely translate into longer benefit. We are also developing non-chemotherapy approaches in older patients with more indolent MCL.

How are you involved with the Lymphoma Research Foundation and why would you recommend a patient become involved with the organization?

I am part of the Lymphoma Research Foundation’s Scientific Advisory Board and Mantle Cell Lymphoma Research Consortium. We have annual meetings where we discuss ongoing research and developing projects. This usually leads to a synopsis of the state-of-the art research and management for MCL that is published to give more information to patients. MCL is a disease for which there is a clear lack of consensus on treatment, and because it is such a heterogeneous and uncommon disease, it is hard for patients to really navigate their way once they are diagnosed. It is important for patients to have an objective synopsis of the changing landscape of MCL and how much progress has been made with regard to treatment.

REAL nice. Let me be the first to post a comment that actually has to do with the subject. I was diagnosed with MCL in September of 2012 and found this blog in my research. I check in on it from time to time to see if the young man that's had a 6+ year remission as of last May has checked in again yet. I see Dr. Goy has given us an informative post so I read it through, then checked the comments to see nothing but annoying spam. Is anyone mediating this, at least checking in to weed this garbage out? I look to this blog for information, hope & inspiration. When I see this stupidity in the comments, not ONE single comment about the groundbreaking treatments Dr. Goy is talking about but just a big load of spam, it makes me want to give up treatment & die.

5/18/12 - Update - All is well (6+ year remission)

It's awesome to post that... and to look and see the last post was over a year ago.

We saw Dr. Goy today - and Chris got to see the new cancer center for HUMED - the John Theurer Cancer Center - it's really amazing. We also got to see Coleen, Mary, and Maureen, and it was so good to see them and catch up. Again, they were all such an important part of my/our cancer journey, so helpful, that it's tremendous to see them.

We're looking forward to the Life and Liberty Celebration that HUMED/JTCC conduct each September, and this year we should have both kids with us (barring conflicting schedules that have prevented them both from coming in the past).

One of the most amazing things to hear is Dr. Goy's dictation into the recorder. The man speaks faster than anyone I know, and with a fairly heavy French accent, all the while moving his feet. However, it's also where i heard him say 2 years until the next exam - at which time he looked over at me and winked. We discussed, and i said i'd miss seeing everyone for 2 years, so lets keep it at 1!

Thanks for visiting, and thoughts and prayers to all who are either battling cancer, or the caregivers, families, and friends - you've all been amazing supportive, and we can't thank you enough.

Best,
John

PS - just read my reports - so nice to see 'unremarkable' and 'unchanged' throughout!

5/13/11 - Update - All is well

It's been a while since posting, and for those that monitor - thanks for looking, and for those that have found this site looking for info, please contact me if you have any questions on the site/contents, I'd be very happy to offer any insight/thoughts I have.

All is well!

I'm happy to say so for me, and do so realizing that not all is well for everyone (thoughts and prayers to all affected). My scans were good, I had a great meeting with Dr. Goy and his staff, during Nurses Appreciation Week no less. To give testament to the kind of Doctor Dr. Goy is, as I arrived at the hospital, there was a delivery of at least 100 beautiful hanging baskets of flowers, that Dr. Goy had ordered for the nurses. I ran into him as I entered the new hospital, as he was looking over the flowers to make sure they were good. One of the nurses I met had commented that he was one of the only doctors to acknowledge Nurses Week in such a manner. (If you've read my blog at all, you know that the nurses make ALL the difference during treatment).

The visit was good, brief but good. "Your scans are clear" was the statement early on; then there's the basic questions, laying of hands to check for lymph nodes, and then the dialog about what's happening in the space of MCL, with other patients, etc. Goy's so very personable, invested, etc. He's recently been named Chairman and Director of the Cancer Center at HUMC, which is awesome. More hats to wear for him, but so long as he can do it, great for me and many others.

Amazing ironic story, one of our best family friends, has an uncle, that's a tailor in town, that has the exact same cancer that I did. It was at a social function that she told me that her uncle was being treated in Hackensack, by a French doctor named Gu..... (phonetically), and I said "Goy?!", sure enough... Jerry (cancer patient) and I talked at some point on the phone, and it was amazing - same disease, same protocol, but he's about twice my age going through it - and he's taking it like a champ. I had the pleasure of seeing him at our friend's daughter's communion recently, and he looked awesome. He's going into round 6 of R-Hyper CVAD, and surely that will kick him a bit, but he's done well, and I'm sure he'll come out with flying colors. He too has an amazing support system - which is HUGE. What's really neat is some of the nurses are still there, and he has one of them somewhat regularly.

Also, we (my immediate family, and my Mother) walked at the Mercer County Park Lymphomathon, organized by the Lymphoma Research Foundation. It was a great sight, they provided yellow shirts to survivors, and white ones to all other walkers. Great attendance, a beautiful day, and an overall excellent event. Many thanks to those that donated - it's wonderful to have such good friends.

I've rambled on, but the short of it is, healthy, over 5 years out, and incredibly grateful. Thanks, and thoughts and prayers to all.

Best,
John

PS - I heard Jim and Steve cell-mates from HUMC are doing well, Cory (cell-mate from Chicago) seems to be doing quite well, Nurses Gabby and Mary from HUMC are now engaged (awesome - both are amazing people); so happy to see Coleen, Alex, Hillary, and Jesse during my visit to Dr. Goy.

John - so good of course that you are in perfect health - it must be such a bonus to those going thru it that can reach out to you - as you say - support system is everything. You didn't go on too much - and congrats to the nurses' engagements (your friends) and to Dr Goy for him as a doctor and supporting the nurses as he did with the flowers.

2/22/10 - Semi-Annual Update - All is well

February 2010 Semi-Annual Update - Unremarkable....

All is well - scans were unremarkable/unchanged/etc... The doc was pleased (as were we).

I had a CT scan on Friday (2/19/10), but no PET scan this time. I figured insurance would start to question/push-back on the PET scan, as they're quite expensive, and as I'm 4 years out from treatment, there's a point where they'd want to have something evidence itself in a dr visit, or the CT scan. Really can't argue with that... So, CT scans they were, with contrast, and had pre-med of 3x50mg Prednisone, and took 3x25mg benadryl. The scans went uneventful - quite a bit faster than having the CT and PET to do.

The doctor visit involved the usual wait (north of an hour), but I got to see Mary and Alex (both nurses that used to be on the Chemo floor, and are now in Dr. Goy's staff). Coleen and Dr. Goy are doing well, and it was great to catch up. Goy's been busy, but still does 2 days a week seeing patient appointments, and of course makes rounds, etc. He's Deputy Director of the Cancer Center, and Chief of Lymphoma, and a big advocate of administrative resources still maintaining a hand's on approach.

I'm still going for 6 month checkups - which is good, and I'll go back in September, after all of the fun of summer!

I talked to Jim (cell-mate), and he's doing well - another clean visit, and we're of course thrilled to hear. Steven's doing well, and I need to sync-up with him.

My firm has an annual appeal where you can donate funds to various charities (comes out of your paycheck, and some matching of funds takes place), and the Hackensack University Medical Center is one of the choices, so I picked that, specifying the Cancer Center. I sent a note to some colleagues at work, nothing that if they didn't have any charity choices of their own, that they consider this one when making their election. I know most everyone has their own issues/challenges to work with, but in the event they were looking for something to contribute to (outside of the generic firm's choice - a good charity of course), they consider this one. I raise this issue on the blog, as I'd (1) encourage readers of this to do the same if they don't have any specific choices in mind, or (2) you may want to encourage others to donate to whatever facility you attended. (Seems it's when you were first starting to work that you didn't have as many issues, or compare as many pains with friends/colleagues, that you simply chose the generic charity - years later, there seems to be an abundance of worthwhile choices that have a personal attachment!)

Many thanks for looking, best wishes to all!
John

Hey John,

I~m a fellow MCL patient from Brazil and I would like to say that since I found out about my condition I started following your blog (aug/2008 that was).
Since that, I did all the chemo like you did (exactly the same protocol)and also a bone marrow transplant. I just did my 1 year check and everything is perfect. I would like to exchange some experiences with you (if you feel like that, of course) because there are always things to talk about that are interesting, like new treatments, nutrition and so forth. Also, would like to say that your blog always served to reasure myself that it was possible to get cured and live a normal life again! Thanks!
Caio


From John (8/20/10):
Caio,
Great news on your treatment and success! The bone marrow transplant must have been challenging - but certainly has some excellent results. I'll contact you offline, but am certainly open to discussion, as I think there's real benefit in that. I've not been as active on the various MCL forums - just need some time away from it I suppose - a bit of normalcy, but I agree there's benefit to keeping aware. And many thanks on the kind words; as you can imagine, that's incredibly humbling to hear, and extremely rewarding.

Best,
John

August 2009 Semi-Annual Update - Unremarkable

Again - 'unremarkable' is one of the best things to see on a pet/ct report - and i had a bunch of them ('unremarkable's).

I had the scans done on Friday, 8/17/09, and I got a copy faxed to me last week - allowing me to review them before my appointment with Dr. Goy today. Again - this is a key thing to do, as you can question the report when meeting the the doc. On mine, I was happy not to have to question anything. (As an aside, I have to prep w/Prednisone and Benadryl to supress an allergic reaction to the dye that I developed - seems to work well.)

I'm feeling great, still need to lose weight, and my buddy Andy is on me to get cycling again (sage advice). Still, spending time with the family is more fun than being out on the bike for a couple of hours - but then, those that do it say they do it so they can spend more time with the family in the long run...

I got to see Dr. Goy - he looked great, same spirit as ever. His father is apparently as energetic as he is, and at 80 is patenting devices that help with wood splitting for some renewable energy source device he has. Amazing... must be in the genes... Coleen, Mary, Hillary - got to see them all today, and very happy to - great people all of them.

Dr. Goy noted that at 4 years out (i'm 3.5 now), he'd go to an annual checkup. I've discussed this with another buddy of mine, whose wife had a cancer, and his logic is - why would you want to delay identifying something if it came back? The inconvenience of an scan and appointment isn't too much to deal with, versus the other downside. I think I'd prefer to stay at 6 month intervals. We'll see...

Asked about Steven, and he's doing well. Jim's going in shortly I believe, and I'll send a note out to Cory to check in on him. The hospital (Hackensack) is sponsoring an event at Ellis Island on 9/13/09 for Cancer Survivors (Goy said he didn't like that work, and neither do I really), and I think we'll be attending. I'll check with Steve and Jim - would be good to catch up....

Thanks to everyone for checking in, summer has been great - we did vacations to LBI and Boston/Cape Cod, as well as a Sand Castle day at Belmar that was pretty neat. The family is doing great!

Enjoy the rest of summer, Happy Labor Day, and thanks again!
John

Your journey sounds alot like mine. My oncologist insisted on scans every 6 months even tho I was going on 5 years of complete remission. I questioned this at the time, thinking positively "Why not yearly?" But followed his insistence. The last scan, August 31st showed abnormal lymph node activity but not consistent with Mantle Cell. So now we are in the process of determining what kind of lymphoma I have now. I would encourage you to have scans at least every 6 months. I was hoping I was "cured" but this disease is relentless. Just passing on my experience.
Nancy (62)



Nancy - thanks for your words of wisdom and experience. I'm obviously sorry to hear that there seems to be some 'activity', but hope that you're able to attack and beat it quickly, and 'effortlessly'. Please do let me know.
Many thanks, and best wishes,
John

John,

Thanks for your site. As a researcher in this area is is invaluable for me to see your experience "first hand". Do you mind if I use your closeup of the triple lumen catheter for a presentation? I have a new diagnostic technique and I need to show people what this looks like.

Thanks
Mike


Mike - as always, happy that any of this can provide help to someone. Please feel free to use the closeup of the pic, and thanks for asking!

A great post - copied from a friend

I'm cutting this from a friend's site, but I was amazed as I read it. So much of it rang true for me, that I wanted to post it. He had the same cancer that I did, and went through a similar treatment at HUMED, under Dr. Goy's care. He had more complications than I did, but went through it like a champ. Here's part of the post:

"Again, when I look back at what went on in 2008, it was easier for me to experience those challenges, than some of the challenges that I face today. I never felt as stressed back then as I do sometimes today- even though my life was on the line, and I was in the emergency room 6 or 7 times in 12 months. I know so many of you can relate.

I say these things, knowing that some of my friends are without jobs right now due to the economy. I can say these things, knowing that despite the stress, I am blessed and successful and grateful for my job. But I just am puzzled by the variance or dichotomy.

I go through each day, grateful for my family, my friends, my faith, my job, my challenges that teach me a lesson in patience, persistence, gratitude, and the desire to continue.

I thank God each day. I pray for forgiveness for my weakness, thankful for my gifts, and patience to accept the challenges that we all face each day.

I know that the gifts I have are more than the reasons for the strength I have to face each day with a smile."

I could comment on each line, but I'll spare you that; rather note that Jim, the author, captured some amazing sentiments, and all hold true for me as well.

Thanks Jim - keep up the good work.

February 2009 Semi-Annual Update

Another clean bill of health!

I had my PET/CT scans on Fri, 2/20/09, and the follow-up meeting was with Dr. Goy's associate, Dr. Feldman.

I had the normal PET/CT scans conducted the week before (complete with pre-medicating with Prednisone and Benadyl, as I have a reaction to the contrast dye). The scans looked good, again 'unremarkable' is a great term to see! Guidance to those going through this - get a copy of your scans so you can read them as well, and so you have a copy. I keep a paper copy, and scan them to the PC so I have soft copies of all records, and can package them up if needed (to be sent to someone, print them without photocopying all of the records I have - a rather large binder at this point). CBC's look good as well.

All else is well, feel great, family's well, got in some skiing, and enjoying life!

Best to all!

John

prada handbag WASHINGTON (AP) — The intelligence gathered by U.S. military surveillance flights over Syria could support a broad bombing campaign against the Islamic State militant group, but current and former U.S. officials differ on whether air power would significantly degrade what some have called a "terrorist army." Further complicating the plans, any military action against Islamic State militants in Syria would also have the effect of putting the U.S. on the same side as Syrian President Bashar Assad, whose ouster the Obama administration has sought for years.

prada bags COSTA MESA, California (AP) — Nearly two dozen Chinese tourists descended from a white shuttle bus for an afternoon of shopping at one of Southern California's signature upscale malls. One tourist conferred with a salesman at South Coast Plaza about a plum-colored, $610 Prada handbag while fellow visitors on the 10-day tour sauntered through the mall, each with their sole child in tow, after a morning of whale watching off the California coast.

Cheap Prada Replica Handbags For Sale KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — One of the two men vying to become Afghanistan's next president is threatening to boycott a ballot audit from the country's disputed presidential runoff, his adviser said Tuesday, a development that could further disrupt the already troubled process. The complicated, U.N.-supervised audit of the 8 million votes from the June presidential runoff was brokered by the U.S. in July as a way to end the fractious debate over who won the election.

Fake Prada bags MUMBAI, India (AP) — Rabbis from across Asia on Tuesday celebrated the reopening of a Jewish center targeted by rampaging Pakistani gunmen who stormed through Mumbai on a 60-hour killing spree in 2008. The attacks on the Chabad center and other iconic locations in India's financial capital left 166 people dead. Among them were six people from the orthodox Jewish center, including Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife. Their infant son escaped in the arms of his Indian nanny, and the two now live in Israel.

Discount Prada Handbags CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — The Australian government said Tuesday it will spend 64 million Australian dollars ($60 million) on measures to counter violent extremism and radicalization as Islamic State continues to recruit foreign fighters to its ranks in Iraq and Syria. The measures include strengthened community engagement programs aimed at preventing young Australians from becoming involved with extremist groups and new multi-agency investigation teams to disrupt foreign fighters and their supporters.

prada handbags replica cheap CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Australian mining magnate turned lawmaker Clive Palmer has apologized to China over an extraordinary tirade on national television in which he accused the Chinese of shooting their own people and having no system of justice. Following the volatile multimillionaire's Aug. 18 outburst on Australian Broadcasting Corp.'s "Q & A" program, government ministers accused him of threatening Australia's relationship with its biggest trading partner and distanced themselves from his views. Palmer, meanwhile, largely avoided commenting on the issue.

YANGON, Myanmar (AP) — Every evening, more than a dozen men and women walk in a tight row in front of Myanmar's most revered Buddhist pagoda, sweeping the vast marble terrace in unison in hopes of keeping it clean for barefoot pilgrims. To these volunteers, this is not a chore but a noble act — one they carry out eagerly in an effort to gain merit, or spiritual credit.

BEIJING (AP) — China is wooing filmmakers at the same time as it's cracking down on them. Authorities are handing more slots to documentaries, giving even independent filmmakers a chance to be shown on state television. But while China is avidly pursuing what it considers serious content to replace popular dating, reality and game shows, it is also stifling material with any whiff of challenging the Communist Party line. A weekend crackdown by authorities on an independent film festival in Beijing was the worst in its eight-year history, with police confiscating hundreds of films and briefly detaining two organizers.

In this photo by Channi Anand, villagers in Indian-controlled Kashmir take shelter inside an army bunker anticipating firing from the Pakistan side of the border. Indian and Pakistani forces have exchanged gunfire and mortar rounds several times in recent days, with 10 deaths of villagers, soldiers and suspected insurgents reported since Friday. Military leaders from both sides spoke by phone on Tuesday about the cease-fire violations. India and Pakistan both claim Kashmir in its entirety and have fought two of their three wars over the region. ___

BEIJING (AP) — China's air force said it deployed an armed drone to multinational anti-terrorism drills on Tuesday, underscoring the country's rapid progress in developing unmanned aerial vehicles. The drone, which wasn't identified by type, carried out a successful mission in which it destroyed a mock enemy command vehicle with a missile, the official Xinhua News Agency quoted air force spokesman Shen Jinke as saying.

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — A closed-door trial began Tuesday for the first of five janitors accused of raping a kindergartner in a bathroom at a prestigious international school in Indonesia that is facing a storm of controversy following more abuse allegations. An American who taught at the Jakarta International School for 10 years killed himself earlier this year as the FBI was investigating evidence that he sexually abused scores of teen boys while working at 10 schools across four continents.

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Kurdish rebels have abducted three Chinese workers in southeast Turkey and attacked a thermal power plant where they worked, injuring a security guard, Turkey's state-run news agency reported Monday. The Anadolu Agency said the workers were seized while grocery shopping near the town Silopi on Sunday and that Turkish security forces had launched an operation to rescue them.

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — A man accused of murdering his girlfriend nearly 14 years ago in Switzerland was arrested Tuesday in New Zealand. The 42-year-old Sri Lankan national is accused of murdering 23-year-old Kavitha Kandiah on Dec. 13, 2000, in the city of Basel. He was arrested under a Swiss warrant and granted interim name suppression by a New Zealand court pending an appearance next week.

NEW YORK (AP) — Osama bin Laden's son-in-law should be sentenced to life in prison for his role as al-Qaida's spokesman after the Sept. 11 attacks, when he made "bone-chilling threats" against America, prosecutors said in court papers filed Monday. The government said a life sentence for Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, whose words were "inciting, murderous, and hateful," would send an important deterrent message to would-be terrorists.

DALLAS (AP) — Hackers attacked Sony's PlayStation Network and apparently disrupted the travel plans of a top company executive by going on Twitter to suggest that there was a bomb on his American Airlines plane. American cut short the Sony Corp. executive's flight on Sunday and made an unplanned landing in Phoenix.

September 2008 Semi-Annual Update

Good news again - clean bill of health!!

I had my scans done about 2 weeks ago, and got copies of the results as soon as they had them - a few days later. It's important to get the reports for yourself, as it's (1) good to have your own history, and (2) it's good to review them before you see the doctor.

The scans were good, so I felt good there, but it always seems there's some term or something on the scans that you don't understand, so it's good to have it highlighted prior to your visit, and ask the question - rather than see it after the visit, and have to ask the follow-up question. Most of the things end up being sinus congestion, etc. Again, a clean bill of health!

Chris and I went up to HUMed for a 9:50am appointment, and ultimately saw Dr. Goy around 1pm. Like a good restaraunt, you don't want it to be empty, but it can be frustrating at times. I do take solice in the fact that I know when I had fevers, etc, he would make time for me, and I know there were Saturdays when he'd make rounds seeing 70 patients, and then do add'l work. It's a job I couldn't imagine having, and am thankful there are doctors like Goy that dedicate themselves to the cause.

It was good to see Dr. Goy, Coleen, Noel, and Jesse, with the added bonus of seeing Alex, Mary, Hillary, and Maureen (from a distance) - the latter group of four were all phenominal nurses on 5PE where I got treatment. As much as I'm happy to see them at the clinic where Dr. Goy is, I know the patients are missing some of the best nurses there are - and I've expressed previously just how important the nurses are to chemo care. Regardless, I'm thrilled they're still with Dr. Goy and Hackensack.

Dr. Goy was as energetic and busy as always. He's been seeing over 100 MCL patients, from all over the world. This is key to understanding the disease, and getting more treatment options for it. We had to wait hours to see him, but you know when you do, you have all of his attention. He sits back and talks with you about your life, what's happening in the field, etc. He's got a great presense.

It's another 6 months before a visit, and I'm of course grateful for that.

Many thanks for all the wishes, prayers, and inquiries. I asked Goy and Coleen about Stephen, and they said he's doing well. I'll mail him shortly to get an update in person. I'll also mail Cory to see how he'd doing. James, another 'cell mate' has recently completed 6 rounds of treatment - including a study drug (velcade), and is doing well. He's had his battles, but he came through with flying colors (some black, some blue!).

On the personal front (like the above wasn't), it's been a great summer, with lots of good family time on the weekends, some good vacation getaways, and a great appreciation of friends and family.

Thoughs and prayers to all going throug this, including of course caregivers and families. A request for thoughts and prayers to friends of ours that have a baby in neo-natal due to a premature birth, as well as a very good friend and his family whose son recently passed away.

Again, many thanks for checking in, and we wish everyone well!

John and Chris

I don't write very much, but I wanted you to know how much of an impact and inspiration you have been. I do read everything on-line (my husband prefers not to). I am so very happy to hear your great news. My husband Frank was diagnosed in 7/06 and Dr. Goy had him speak to you. I cannot begin to tell you how much you and your site has helped us. Frank is still doing great as well.
Thank you and God Bless you and your family!

The Hermès Horizons team (which usually develops luxurious interiors for cars and private jets) has created two new luxury bikes for the French fashion and accessories brand: 'Le Flâneur d'Hermès' (a relaxed ride for the city) and 'Le Flâneur sportif d'Hermès' (a sportier racing bike model).

hermes bag outlet Both bikes come in a choice of charcoal, red and white colors with bull leather saddles and grips, hydraulic brakes and superlight carbon fiber frames created by French bike company Time . 


hermes outlet online "We really want to work with people who have a very deep expertise, and wherever possible, we try to find them in France," François Doré, head of the project, told WWD . "We set out to make a real bike, not a decorative object. It had to be simple, efficient, easy to use, pleasant and elegant," he added. 


hermes outlet belt It's a growing trend. This fall Marc Jacobs worked with bamboo bike company  Panda Bicycles on a range of limited-edition, hand-crafted models which retail at $5,000. The designer was following the lead of ex-fiancée Lorenzo Martone who founded his own bike company Martone Cycling , selling colorful city-bikes priced at $899 earlier this spring.

The Hermès bikes will hit the brand's stores in November, with the Flâneur model retailing at €8,100.

Sports Shoes Outlet Shop By Victoria Bryan

FRANKFURT, Nov 7 (Reuters) - Adidas forecast a$2.7 billion boost to sales from next year's soccer World Cupwould help it over a tough 2013, and said it would fend offrival Nike in hotly-contested European markets withinnovative running gear.

Adidas, the world's No. 2 maker of sportswear andaccessories, has struggled this year to maintain momentum aftera big boost in 2012 from the Olympics and European soccerchampionship, and warned in September sales and profits wouldnot rise as much as expected.

The company confirmed on Thursday that third quarteroperating profit dropped 6 percent and sales fell 7 percent,hurt by distribution problems in Russia, a currency hit in NorthAmerica and Japan, and poor sales of golfing products.

To make matters worse, Adidas lost market share to Nike onits European home turf.

It had 13.2 percent of the western European sporting goodsmarket to Nike's 12.4 percent in 2012, according to data fromEuromonitor. Nike reported an 8 percent rise in sales in westernEurope in its fiscal first quarter to the end of August, whileAdidas posted a fall of 6 percent at constant currencies in itsthird quarter.

Adidas Chief Executive Herbert Hainer denied a recent reportthat Nike had overtaken Adidas in terms of soccer sales inGermany and vowed to defend the group's prize business.

"We have a lot of ammunition to fight back," he toldjournalists, noting that increased levels of World Cup stock -jerseys and match balls - are now being shipped out ahead ofrelease in a couple of weeks.

Adidas will also launch more soccer shoes with the help ofBarcelona star Lionel Messi who fronts its new range of brightlycoloured Samba boots.

The sportswear firm traditionally performs well in yearswith major sporting events. Its forecast for soccer sales ofmore than 2 billion euros ($2.7 billion) in 2014 would be arecord and an increase of a third compared with 1.5 billion inthe last World Cup year.

Shares in Adidas, which hit a record high of 88.50 euros inAugust, were up 3.5 percent and outperforming a flat widermarket at 1135 GMT as investors welcomed results asforecast and looked to better earnings next year.

"All the bad news (is) on the table now," DZ Bank analystHerbert Sturm said, referring to the company's earlier profitwarning. "We expect a series of positive news flow in the nextmonths to come."

RUNNING AWAY FROM NIKE

Chief Financial Officer Robin Stalker explained a 6 percentjump in inventories by saying the group had already increasedstock levels ahead of an expected upturn in demand.

"We anticipate sales in next three to six months to behigher than the same period last year," he said.

Aside from soccer, Hainer said Adidas was well placed totake on Nike in the running market, where it has increased salesby 14 percent so far this year.

The group has launched two new running shoes this year -Boost and Springblade, the first with cushioning in the sole,the second with futuristic-looking blades on the sole. Hainersaid the latter was doing well with consumers in the UnitedStates, Brazil and Russia.

"We will roll it out further in 2014," he said.

In a bid to outdo Nike's popular Fuelband fitness monitor,Adidas has also unveiled a new running watch that can track thewearer's run, heartbeat, offer coaching tips and play music.

"Losing leadership in Western Europe - their home market -would be a very tough pill to swallow," said Euromonitor analystMagdalena Kondej. "But they recognise the threat and theycontinue focusing on innovation. That puts them in a goodposition once European markets recover."

A bright spot was the Reebok brand, where sales rose 5percent in the three months to end-September, the second quarterin a row of growth as a new focus on fitness pays off.

Hainer also said Adidas was making "good progress" on its2015 targets for sales of 17 billion euros and an operatingmargin of 11 percent, goals that had come under scrutiny afterthe profit warning.

Third quarter sales were 3.88 billion euros and operatingprofit 463 million ($626 million), both slightly below theaverage estimates in a Reuters poll. Despite this, the groupimproved its gross profit margin - a key measure ofprofitability in the apparel industry - 1.9 percentage points to49.3 percent on higher prices and sales in its own shops.

Adidas maintained a forecast for sales to rise by a lowsingle digit percentage in 2013 and to achieve an operatingmargin of around 8.5 percent.

The annual general meeting of ESN will be held this year . The first phase of co-optation I experienced in the anti-psychiatric abuse movement was in 1985. I was not a very active member or leader at that time, but I went to the annual "International Conference For Human Rights and Against Psychiatric Oppression" in 1985 and experienced the three-way division that left the North American movement, at least, in a weakened and demoralized state. This division may have also allowed NAMI, an organization of family.

February 2008 Quarterly Update

Good news, clean bill of health, and the next checkup is 6 months out!

Thanks for all the kind wishes, thoughts, and prayers - and for checking in, we really appreciate it.

Activities:
- Colonoscopy/Endoscopy in October - clean results
- PET/CT on 1/28/08 - results were good. actually showed decreased activity where there may have been a cold or something evident last time. Blood counts all look good.

I found out that I'm now allergic to the contrast dye they use in the CAT scan. That means next time I have to pre-medicate with Prednison and Benadryl (prescription), to ward off the effects. I got itchy (lips, face), and had a feeling of asthma a bit; nothing too bad, but they monitored me and ran a saline IV and made me drink lots of water.

I also found out I have some early and minor cataracts. It's a possible side effect of prednisone, and my eye doctor noticed is when checking my eyes. From chemocare.com )http://www.chemocare.com/bio/prednisone.asp):
The following are less common side effects (occurring in 10 to 29%) for patients receiving prednisone:

Headaches
Dizziness
Mood swings
Cataracts and bone thinning (with long-term use)

It was great to see Dr. Goy, he's doing well, energetic as ever. He, and his nurse practitioner, Noel, said I need to get back on the exercies routine. My buddy Andy has been getting on me a bit as well, saying that it was my being in good shape when all this started, that really helped me get through it well, so I owe it to myself, and family to get back to a good condition. I'll be spending some more time on the bike (in the basement now), trying to shed some pounds, and get the cardio back!

I've mailed with Steve and Cory - and they're doing great, remission, doing well. Jim is going to start treatment soon, he had a little scare with acute diverticulitis, and a temporary colonostomy (my Dad had one too - colonostomy); no doubt he'll do well.

That's it for now, feeling great, working hard, and enjoying friends and family!

All the best,
John & Chris

Did your doctor ever suggest a bone marrow transplant? I've completed 4 treatments of the R-Hyper-CVAD and that's what my doctor is discussing. Your blog incouraged me so very much! I have sailed right through the last 4 treatments. Thank you!

John, are there any MCL support groups you are aware of. I was diagnosed with MCL two weeks ago, and I've gotten wildly divergent opinions from Cornell-Weill and Sloan. Why did you decide to go with Dr. Goy? Was it for the Hyper VCAD? Cornell wants me to do W&W and then R-CHOP, Sloan wants R-CHOP followed by ICE followed by an auto transplant. I'm stage IV with 30% marrow, 2x spleen and circulating cells.

John,

Once again, congratulations on a good report. Likewise, I continue to have a clean bill of health. I'm going in May for what I believe to be my final Rituxan Maintenance infusion. This would end the 2 year maintenance period. My PET/CT scans every 6 months remain clear. The blood labs, FISH study, etc. also are clear. It's funny, you commented about how your doctor said for you to get back into your exercise routine. That is one thing left for me to "complete". I need to drop some lbs. Besides that, life is good, I feel great, and am encouraged about the future and those dealing with MCL. I believe more and more will do well and better outcomes continue. Best wishes to you and your family.

U.S. Stocks Rise as Energy Shares Gain Amid Syria Concern

The Top Ten Stocks for Aug. 28

tiffany U.S. stocks rose, with the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index rebounding from an eight-week low, as energy shares rallied and investors watched developments on Syria .

cheap tiffany Chevron Corp. and Exxon Mobil Corp. jumped more than 2.3 percent. TiVo (TIVO) Inc. climbed 5.6 percent after the maker of digital-video recorders posted a profit. Joy Global Inc. lost 4.7 percent as the mining equipment maker said orders for new equipment are declining. PulteGroup Inc. and D.R. Horton Inc. declined at least 1.2 percent as pending sales of existing homes unexpectedly fell in July.

tiffany outlet locations The S&P 500 rose 0.3 percent to 1,634.96 at 4 p.m. in New York . The index closed just short of its average level for the past 100 days of 1,638.27, after slipping below it yesterday for the first time since June. The Dow Jones Industrial Average advanced 48.38 points, or 0.3 percent, to 14,824.51.

tiffany and co “We’re simply just seeing a little bit of bounce back from what was very bad action yesterday,” Walter Todd , who oversees about $950 million as chief investment officer of Greenwood Capital Associates LLC in Greenwood, South Carolina , said by phone. “There are probably starting to be opportunities that are being created in certain segments of the market as a result of this sell-off, and investors are wisely looking to see if they can take advantage of some of those.”

tiffany outlet store The S&P 500 slid 1.6 percent yesterday to the lowest level since July 3 amid concern the U.S. will take action against Syria. The U.S. and the U.K. today said they are prepared to take military action against Syria without authorization from the United Nations Security Council .

‘Appropriate’ Steps

tiffany silver After Russia objected to a UN resolution offered by the U.K. authorizing action to protect civilians, a State Department spokeswoman said the U.S. will take “appropriate” steps without the international body’s approval. The U.S. and its NATO allies began presenting their justification for military action as they advanced plans for launching strikes and prepared evidence that the Syrian government used chemical weapons on its own people.

“This is an environment where people are really focused on one variable which is going to dominate all others, and that, today, is Syria,” Lawrence Creatura , a Rochester, New York-based fund manager at Federated Investors Inc., which oversees about $380 billion, said in a phone interview. “The reflex is to sell during times of sudden unexpected conflict. Weakness derived from temporary events can often times be a great buying opportunity.”

Fed Stimulus

The S&P 500 has lost 4.4 percent from a record high on Aug. 2 amid growing speculation the Federal Reserve will reduce its monthly bond buying. Minutes of the central bank’s July meeting released Aug. 21 showed policy makers supported stimulus cuts this year if the economy improves. Fed stimulus helped push the S&P 500 up as much as 153 percent from its March 2009 low, as better-than-estimated corporate earnings also fueled gains.

Data today showed fewer Americans signed contracts in July to buy previously owned homes. The index of pending home sales dropped 1.3 percent, the most this year, after a 0.4 percent decrease in June, according to figures from the National Association of Realtors. Economists forecast no change in the gauge from the month before, according to a median estimate in a Bloomberg survey.

About 5.2 billion shares changed hands on U.S. exchanges. Trading volume is heading for the second-slowest month in at least five years, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. An average of about 5.5 billion shares changed hands each day this month. That’s about 80 million shares more than last August.

Volatility Index

The Chicago Board Options Exchange Volatility Index (VIX) , or VIX, fell 1.7 percent to 16.49. The equity volatility gauge has surged 39 percent since a five-month low on Aug. 5.

Seven out of 10 main industry groups in the S&P 500 rose, with energy companies jumping 1.8 percent to pace advances. Chevron advanced 2.5 percent to $121.81. Exxon Mobil rallied 2.3 percent to $88.84. Marathon Oil Corp. increased 3.7 percent to $34.60. Oil futures climbed 1 percent to the highest in two years.

TiVo advanced 5.6 percent to $11.58 after reporting second-quarter net income of $268.9 million, including legal settlements, compared with a $27 million loss a year earlier. Chief Executive Officer Tom Rogers said in an interview the company will be profitable for the remainder of the fiscal year ending January and through the following year.

Zale, Express

Avago Technologies Ltd. surged 4.7 percent to $38.28. The supplier of components for wireless communications reported third-quarter revenue of $664 million, exceeding the $617.25 million average forecast of analysts surveyed by Bloomberg.

Zale Corp. rose 30 percent to $11.63, the highest level since 2008. The jewelery retailer reported fourth-quarter revenue that beat analyst estimates as same-store sales jumped 5.6 percent.

Express Inc. (EXPR) gained 6.6 percent to $21.10. The specialty retailer said same-store sales rose 6 percent in the second quarter, beating analysts’ estimates, and raised its profit forecast.

Tiffany & Co. retreated 4.4 percent to $77.25, extending its loss for the week so far to 5.8 percent. The world’s second-largest luxury jewelry retailer yesterday reported second-quarter sales that were short of analyst estimates.

Joy Global lost 4.7 percent to $48.89. The mining equipment producer’s CEO, Mike Sutherlin, said the market “has become even more challenging,” as customers’ declining cash flows are resulting in “significantly” reduced capital expenditures . Caterpillar Inc. slid 0.3 percent to $82.45.

An S&P index of homebuilders fell 1.2 percent. PulteGroup lost 1.4 percent to $15.38 while D.R. Horton declined 1.2 percent to $17.77.

Taser International Inc. (TASR) fell 5.9 percent to $11.15, after rising 38 percent in the past 11 trading days. The maker of stun guns declined after JPMorgan analysts downgraded the shares to neutral from overweight.

Jones Says Vols "Better Get Tough" Before Facing Auburn Ground Attack
Tennessee Facing One Of Toughest Homecoming Matchups In Decades
Monday, November 04, 2013
- by Special to Chattanoogan.com

watches KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- After the debacle at Missouri, Tennessee’s football team has turned its attention to Saturday’s homecoming game against nationally ranked Auburn.


patek phillipe Coach Butch Jones and players James Stone and Jacques Smith, the former Ooltewah High All-America defensive lineman met with the media at Neyland Stadium on Monday.


the patek philippe First, Jones’ portion of the press conference and players follow:


(Opening Statement)
0001pt; text-align: justify;"> 
"Good afternoon, thanks for coming out. Just a quick recap on the Missouri game, spoke about it in the postgame press conference, I think first off getting off to a fast start is critical in every game but especially on the road, we had great field position and we were never able to do anything with that field position. I thought that really set the temperament of the game. The next thing which I also briefly spoke about is it is a line of scrimmage game and I thought we were dominated on both sides of the line of scrimmage. It is what it is. That will not be tolerated here at Tennessee. I thought that anytime a team can rush the football against you for over 300-yards and we had less than 100-yards rushing, makes it extremely difficult.
 
"I said the formula for this team to win is pretty simple, we have to over achieve. We can't beat ourselves. We aren't going to be, talent-wise, the best team we play but that doesn't make us the best team. The best teams for that given day win, not just best individuals, athletically or individually. So we have to be a team that overachieves, plays disciplined football and we weren't able to do that. Inordinate amount of penalties which is unacceptable. We spend too much time in practice with a full officiating crew, we are talking about the discipline it takes to win football games. We have done a really good job at most stages of the season and that wasn't us Saturday night.
 
"Everything is based on how you play, how you compete, how you strain, how you play for '63,' which we talk about in our program. It is how you are able to play with the discipline that it takes to play winning football and our players understanding that. That is what we went back and really studied that, how we played the game, how we competed, the fundamentals, the fine details, that is something that we will continue to stress just like we do each and every week.
"I think right now we are dealing with the realities of building a football program and we are dealing with the realities of a football season. There are natural adversities that the game and the process presents itself and that is what we are dealing with right now. Whether it is injuries and being on your third quarterback, whether it is the schedule that we have, the nicks, the bruises, the mental grind that it takes, the lack of depth. Whatever it is. Those are natural adversities that occur throughout the course of the season. Everything is going to be based on how we finish. We put ourselves in position to play meaningful games, every game is meaningful from here on out. Everything is going to be defined on how we finish.
 
"Another great opponent, another talented football team coming in here. Uptempo, team with a mentality to run the football, great, great challenge. I will tell you this, it is great to be home and playing in front of our crowd this week."
 
(On the similarities of Auburn and Missouri's offense)
 
"I think there are some similarities but there are some mark differences as well. I think it is the different personnel groupings that they get in with. The miss term used in college football is the spread offense, everyone has a different definition of what the spread offense is. It is kind of the evolution of the west coast offense back in the day, everyone spoke about it. What is a spread offense? Is it shot gun? It is no huddle? Is it uptempo? Is it 10 personnel with four and five wideouts on the field? What is it? Where they challenge is they are able to get multiple personnel groupings and they play with a high level of physicality.
 
"The dimension that Nick Marshall brings to their offense, he is a dynamic football player. He can run it, he can pass it. Jeremy Johnson does a great job for them as well. They cause you a lot of matchup problems."
 
(On moving on from a tough loss)
 
"I am always concerned but we have great character in our football program. I am going to appeal to their competitive character. Pride and heart matter. I met with our players staff yesterday and everyone is obviously disappointed, and they should be. We didn't play well. That is all of us. Everyone has to be accountable for their self-determination. Everyone is accountable for their preparation and how they perform. We talk about pride and performance all the time, it starts with the coaches, it starts with everyone in our football organization and our football family. I know everyone was extremely disappointed but not discouraged. We are playing for a lot. I liked the way our kids, the feedback I have received from them, we will come back today and we will be ready to go. There is no reason to be. We are fighting for a bowl game. We have an opportunity to play 102,455 in Neyland Stadium. It is an honor and a privilege to play at Tennessee. That should not be an issue. But you always talk about that with your team,"
 
(On if he thought the team was mentally prepared for Saturday)
 
"I did. We had a great week of preparation. I thought we were emotionally ready to play. But so much of it is creating your own opportunities and your own momentum. We were never able to do that. We dropped a touchdown pass. That flips the game, which flips the momentum. We didn't have very many explosive plays. Generating three-and-outs. We did a great job to start the game. It is 7 nothing with 12 or 11 minutes to go in the second quarter. It is being about to sustain, it is the overall focus. We didn't have anyone step up and take hold of the football game. That is what you have to do. These are all learning experiences. When you look at all the experiences that we have had to this point of time, both positive and both negative, they should really enforce what we are building here. The mentality that it takes to play week in and week out. The toughness that is required. The team chemistry, the competitive character, the effort, the energy, the passion which you just spoke about, and the discipline to do the little things correctly. I think what separates teams, what separates people is the willingness to do the things that nobody else wants to do. Everyone can do them but nobody else wants to do them. Those are the small details, those are the little things. Like I said, we are going through the realities of building a football program, really teaching our players the standard and expectation. That is not going to be a crutch. We want passionate people who expect and deserve to win week in and week out. I know we have a great group of kids and they will be ready to go."
 
(On Joshua Dobbs improving from his experience)
 
"I think you take a lot of things from it, you know how cerebral he is. Just like we as coaches, he dissects every single play. Some really good experiences and some experiences that we need to correct and move forward and not make them twice, which he will. There is one where we were in the one-minute drill, run out of bounds and stop the clock, there comes a point in time where is two-yards more important than getting out of bounds and stopping the clock, and we turned the football over. Another one, we throw a deep ball and the receiver is covered, throw it out of bounds, it is first-and-ten. Learn from it, play the next down, put the play on the shelf, and now we have second-and-ten and away we go. Those are all little things that you can rep in practice, kind of replicate it in game like situations but when they are live reps you grow up and you learn from it. I think the experiences that he gained will obviously should continue to move him forward."
 
(On using four or five receivers at Missouri)
 
"It was a combination of a lot of things. It was trying to put the best 11 players on the field to win the football game. I think some of it is, we don't have a lot of competition unfortunately at some positions. We have a standard in performance here at Tennessee and if we don't perform up to that standard we have to find alternate ways of different personnel groupings. I think the next thing is trying to play to the skill set of the quarterback. I think there is a number of things that went into that decision, some of the different formations that you saw and we will continue to evolve with Josh as our quarterback."
 
(On the difficulty of the season)
 
"Well if you deal with the realities you know it is what it is and the schedule is the schedule and we have to play it and we expect to win every football game. Is it a grind? Yes, it's a grind not only mentally but physically and getting yourself up to play your best performance week in and week out versus the best of the best. A lot of those have been on the road in hostile environments but that's not a crutch, that's not an excuse, that's life in the SEC and that's life at Tennessee. But it does, the reality that it does take its toll but it's a great learning process.
 
"I talked about this last week and that's part of the process I spoke about is we're youthful. Not only in 24 now freshmen playing but youthful in the learning curve of really what it takes. I think the other thing is when you play well against Georgia and you beat South Carolina, you're not sneaking up on anybody. Everybody watches those games and that's all learning curve and for a lot of these individuals it's the first time being in these situations and that's what I talk about you know we're going through the realities of building a football program.
 
"I want it now, let's make no mistake about it I want it now, our players want it now, our former players - our Vols for life want it now, our fan base wants it now, our administration wants it now, we all want it now but I see the positives each and every day. People in our industry that really study the game see it. I see it each and every day. Some days larger than others but I see improvements and sometimes you don't see it in the win column. As head football coach I have to take the emotion out of it and I have to look at it. Are we doing the right schemes? Are we putting the players in positions to be successful? Are we getting the most? Are we extracting every ounce of value that we have in every single one of our players and then where do we need to improve? Where are our deficiencies? We have to correct those through development and through the recruiting process.
 
"You know, It is what it is but we're going to do it right and we are. We're making great strides. We have to put our heads down, eliminate all the clutter and just keep getting better as a football program. I'm just as encouraged right now as I've ever been. I see growth, I see maturation, I see attracting the best of the best student athletes who have great competitive character that want to be in the process of getting Tennessee football back so I'm extremely encouraged. Do we have a lot of work to do? You guys see what I see but I'm also encouraged by where we're going."
 
(On the offensive line penalties)
 
"You know, I think it's the combination of a lot of things. I think we put a lot of pressure on them and we should because they play a lot of football here and I said it when we walked in the door, I said it after spring football, I said it in August and I continue to say it, we have to be more physical as a group. We talk about the power position and you look at when you're building your program, most of these individuals played as true freshmen so they're already set back on year in the development phase of the strength and conditioning area - the mentality. Our players are up four days at 6 a.m. doing developmental lifts. That's were a lot of your toughness, that's were a lot of your strength is born and developed in that area so then all of the sudden it's competition as well and we're going to get back to doing what we do.
 
"Full-padded practice, live practices and we're going to be a tough football team and I know this: those individuals understand that they didn't perform well and I think you've got to give your opponent credit as well. Also they're playing against some very, very talented defensive fronts. Everybody recruits in the SEC. All the teams that are successful they have great defensive fronts that's what I've come to find out relatively quick - you win with a defensive front. They've been challenged going up against the best of the best. Sometimes it's not all them. It may be a back missing a read, it may be the quarterback not getting us in the proper play. It may be where the play is blocked for four yards and we get four yards and we need to have the ability to make somebody miss at the second level. It may be a tight end, it may be a wide receiver on the perimeter. Everyone wants to point to the offensive line but really it's the same thing, its 11 players so I think it's a combination it's being in predictable down and distances. When you don't win first down proficiency I think it's the combination of a lot of things that go hand and hand but they're great competitive young men. They understand what they need to do to get better and they're hungry. They were all in my office on Sunday and they understand and they know. They'll continue to get better and we still have a lot of football left to be played."
 
(On Josh Smith)
 
"I think he has to just continue to progress and I think he's going through the maturation phase of a true freshman. Josh needs to take his practice to the games. Josh, I'll tell you right now, has the best hands on our football team. He's extremely competitive. He brings it every day in practice. He's extremely difficult and hard on himself which we want, that's a mark of a great competitor. Now it's taking the practice field to the game field and he's a young man with a tremendous amount of upside and he'll be fine. It goes through those things where he's trying to make a play and he doesn't catch the ball with his eyes, you know he tries to run before he catches the football. Those are all, unfortunately those are all growing pains that we're going through with all of our players and not just Josh but a lot of the true freshmen. It just so happened that his mistake was magnified because he was in the open field and it was a touchdown. I believe in Josh Smith, he's going to be fine."
 
(On motivating)
 
"Absolutely... There are some individuals - you treat everyone in your football program fairly but every individual reacts to different things so one way you motivate one man may not be the same for the other so you have to find ways to get them to perform at their optimum levels so you're right. There are some individuals that I can get after, I can challenge them and they'll respond. There are other individuals there is a different way of challenging. Especially with the guys up front I challenge them because I have high expectations for them and like I said, the offensive and defensive lines of any program are really the poster child for your toughness and your program."
 
(On full-padded practice)
 
"It's the standard and that's the way we're going to play football here. We're going to be a physically tough, a physically tough minded football team in everything that we do. We call it Tennessee tough and it's not just a fancy slogan and we have to get much tougher as a football team and I'm not going to tolerate it as a head football coach, as the caretaker of Tennessee football. Tennessee football is not going to be soft. As we know, building toughness is a process, it just doesn't happen overnight.
 
"There is a cumulative effect that occurs in your winter strength and conditioning program to spring football to August camp to the season and you have to live it. You know, been through this journey before in developing toughness and it takes a while but the great this is with our players, in meeting with them they embraced it and what's that saying, if you want to learn to swim you've got to get in the pool? We've got to get in the pool."
 
(On Marlin Lane)
 
"You'll see his role continue to increase. Now he's back to 100% health wise. The thing we need from him is burst at the second level and really finishing runs. The one run on our sideline he tried to finish but you'll see his work load start to increase a little bit this week."
 
(On how to have success on the road)
 
"I just know that we're going through a process of what it takes to play winning football on the road. Jimmy and I were talking in the car on the way over here. I believe every road opponent we've played has been a top 20 opponent and every road opponent we've played has been ranked in the top 10 at some point or some stage in the season in great venues and there's a toughness, there's a mentality that goes into it. I talk about creating your own momentum, your own opportunities when you play on the road, just like playing Auburn at home this week, we're going to have to create opportunities. I think it's a mindset of going on the road and I think there's a lot that goes into it and it takes a mature football team mentally and physically to go on the road and win football games.
 
(On being tough)
 
"Absolutely, I'll give you the greatest example - two of the greatest examples. We were blessed and fortunate my last year at Cincinnati to basically have a first round draft choice at defensive tackle and a third round draft choice at defensive tackle. Derek Wolf and John Hughes both start. One starts for the Cleveland Browns and one is a good friend of Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. Their junior years, I think they'd chuckle if they heard me saying it but if one was to my left and one was to my right they'd tap me and chuckle and say they were both soft mentally and we challenged them and the way they developed in a year's time is probably the most development I've seen in two individuals and Derek Wolf is tough, he's physical, he's tough minded and John Hughes is a young man we spoke about a couple weeks ago who wasn't even being considered for the National Football League. His senior year he made a decision mentally and physically and we challenged him and Steve Stripling does a great job and again that's just something that doesn't happen overnight.
 
"You have to live that each and every day. You have to live toughness every day in your football program and you just can't talk about it, you've got to be about it. It's got to stem in practice. It's got to stem with all the different things that we talk about and a lot of it is strength and the strength and conditioning. Some is will; some is technique. Some is being in great shape. You can't play physical if you're not in great shape. And a lot of it is the way you use your hands. A lot of it is body position; some of it is the way you run your feet. So there's a lot that goes into the definition of being tough."
 
(On how Dobbs did on the zone-read)
 
"None of them were predetermined calls, and you'll see some different quarterback runs slowly be implemented into our offense. I thought there were still a couple of times there were some yardage out there where he could've pulled the football, but I thought for the most part he did a very, very good job from that aspect."
 
(On how much he will benefit from 42 pass attempts)
 
"I think a lot, and I think that shows confidence in him, confidence in the players around him, but I do. He just didn't go in against a great opponent and hand the football off. We asked him to throw play-action, spread them out. Every kind of route combination you can think of, all kinds of depths from deep to intermediate, short to controlled passing game, quick gain. So, we've asked him and it's just the overall level of consistency. We've talked about starting a game off fast. We have fourth and four at the 38-37 yard line, and we have a completion play for first down, he overthrows it. Why? Because he over strides in the pocket. Those are all things that he'll continue to develop and get better.
 
"On another note for everyone, Nathan Peterman will practice and he'll be full go this week. He's done an exceptional job. Jason McVeigh, our entire training staff, has done a tremendous job and so he'll be full go. I think the other individual I'd be remiss if I didn't speak about, is Michael Palardy and the job that Jason and his staff did as well in terms of, we didn't think Mike was going to be able to kick Saturday. You talk about the stress and the life of a head football coach and coaches; he comes to practice on Thursday with major back spasms. He couldn't even walk. Friday it was touch and go and then Saturday he has one of his best performances of the year. We talk about consistency in performance. When you talked about the seniors, when you talked about all the stuff of this football team, and when I met with them I used the greatest illustration.
 
"I can sit here and tell you John Hughes illustrations and Derek Wolfe stories, but let's talk about our players, Michael Palardy. Here's an individual for whatever occurred in the past, it occurred in the past. He's the same individual physically, gotten stronger, but mentally he's completely different. When I looked at them, I said, `Tell me the difference in Michael Palardy in one year's time.' On his field goal attempt, I walked over to him and I said, `What are you thinking range wise? Tell me where we need to get to.' He (Palardy) goes, `Coach, I can make it from there.' Through experience I know anytime you ask a kicker, they're going to tell you he can make it. I'm like, `No, talk to me. Where do we need to get to?' He says, `Coach I got ya.' He had the one poor punt then he has a great punt and J.R. Carr does a tremendous job of downing the ball on the two inch line. He (Palardy) comes up to me and says, `I got your back. That was for that missed punt the previous snap.' He's playing with a lot of confidence and belief right now and that's a great illustration for every player in our football program, that development process.
 
"That's part of when I talk about we want it now, that's part of the evolution of our football program from the APR to academics. You want to know why Alton Howard's playing well? Alton Howard's doing well at school. Alton Howard is one of the first individuals in the building. He's early in meetings, he's asking questions, he's leading, he has accountability not only to his self but he's holding now the other wide receivers accountable. That's growth. That didn't happen in August. It didn't happen in September. That started to formulate in October. Those are all great stories that nobody else sees because we see it every day."

"We'll continue to move him around, but for that particular game that was a short yardage plan. Really, that was an unbalanced set. We had him and Ja'Wuan (James) on the same side. So, those are just different game plan scenarios on our goal line and short yardage packages. Next week you may be sitting in here and he may play fullback. Heck I don't know, maybe he'll be in the gun doing the `Volcat' package, I don't know we'll see."
 
(On if Nathan Peterman is the No. 2 quarterback)
 
"It's all based on preparation. I think Riley (Ferguson) has is a competitive young man and he wants to be out there and only one quarterback can play right now. Just like we speak about every week, it's whatever individual has had the best week of practice. They'll put them in positions to play in the game."
 
(On if Auburn is an example of growing a program)
 
"Yeah, they're a different team. They have great team speed. They play with a high level of physicality. They have great wide outs. Defensively, tremendous effort to get to the football and they're tough and they're physical. Nick Marshall brings a-whole-nother element to their football program, but so does Jeremy (Johnson) as well. They have a ton of confidence. They're a top ten football team and very deservingly so."
 
(On picking up recruits after losses)
 
"I think, first of all, I think people around the country feel it and they see what's going on. Sometimes the results aren't measured on the field but people see what's going on here. They can feel the energy, they can feel the vision, and it's Tennessee. We're a national brand and we have a great product to sale. Better yet, we have great people here. We have a passionate fan base. I'm all in. This is the best place in the country. I firmly believe it and I've been around, now, all over the country.
 
"There's only one Tennessee. So, it's an opportunity to build something. It's an opportunity to be a part of something extremely special. It's going to mean more when we get back to being the Tennessee standard of football that we all come to expect. It's a work in progress and we have three games left. We're playing for a lot right now in our program. We have to go back to the fundamental aspect that I talked about in August when I sat up here before you. Focus on the process and the results will come.
 
"What does it really take to play winning football? Developing our football program minute by minute, day by day, hour by hour, week by week, and month by month. I know you guys get sick and tired of hearing me say that, but really that's the only way you get it. You have to keep things in perspective. I know this, love is conditional and praise and blame, it's all the same. You've just got to put your head down and keep plugging. A good friend of mine, a former boss, who said you always find out who's really in. When you win, everybody text messages you, but when you lose, you really find out who your true friends are. Your text messages are about cut in half. On the positive, you don't have to respond to as many, but I'd rather be responding to them."
 
(On the run defense against Auburn)
 
"We better get tough. We better get more physical in a hurry. The thing that we didn't do a very good job of is getting off blocks. We call that the junction point. There were a number of times where our three-technique got led. Anytime the three-technique gets led, you're in trouble. Everything about playing great defense and great run defense is gap integrity. When everyone's being responsible for a gap and holding your assignment. It's our linebackers taking their run-pass read off the EOL and man on the line. There are a couple of times where, we've done it over and over again, and the tackle's blocking down and our linebackers taking a pass drop. Those are the small details and we've done it over and over again and they can come to the sideline and tell you.
 
"Football's a game of quick second decisions. Football is a game that's played off of instincts and trusting what you see with your eyes and your eye discipline. Those are the things that we have to get corrected: getting off blocks, maintaining our gaps, not being a gap short because you let a guard reach you as a three technique or the center reaching our one technique. That's inexcusable. That has to deal with your hand violence, your pad level, and your overall strain to get to your gap. We better get it corrected in a hurry. I think they threw eight passes last week and they have a mentality to run the football. The thing about Auburn is they can beat you with quick screens, they can beat you with deep balls, and they can beat you with quarterback runs. If they decide to line up and run power offense at you, they can beat you. Like I said, they're a good physical football team."
 
SENIOR OFFENSIVE LINEMAN JAMES STONE
 
(On full-contact practices)
 
"I just feel like you have to be smart about it, but at the same time, you have to realize that it is the only way to go out there and play as physical as you want to play. You have to practice it at full speed and contact. I feel like Coach Jones is going to be smart with it, and he will get us going with full physicality."
 
(On Joshua Dobbs' first start)
 
"I have been talking to him and letting him know that the offensive line has his back. He showed incredible poise and overall had great communication between him and us. I saw a lot from him on Saturday night."
 
(On watching tape from Saturday)
 
"The entire offensive line got together and watched the film. It was tough and disappointing to see our performance like that. We need to be leaders for our team, but we didn't perform to our abilities or what our team expected from us."
 
(On why performance was so low)
 
"I just feel like guys weren't ready from the emotional stand point, but I don't think the focus was completely there either. We had uncharacteristic penalties. Those are in excusable from the offensive line stand point."
 
(On what caused penalties)
 
"It was a combination of things. I can't give you an exact reason why we had those penalties. That is uncharacteristic of us, and it is something that we really try to focus on being disciplined in practice. When it doesn't show up on Saturdays, you know it will be addressed and fixed with the coaches that we have."
 
(On being back home)
 
"I think the team has a great atmosphere when we are at home. When we play at Neyland, it gets the team going. That is where our big performances have come this season. I think the team is really looking forward to play at home again in front of our crowd. It helps us too by playing these meaningful games in front of our crowd."
 
(On coach Jones' message yesterday)
 
"He basically told us that we didn't play our brand of football out there, and we're not going to represent Tennessee like that. We're not going to go out there and continue to represent Tennessee that way like we did Saturday night, especially on the line of scrimmage. That's another one of the reasons for getting back to the practices, getting more physical, and everybody recommitting and focusing on this process, and finishing these last three games strong.”
 
(On why Tennessee plays better at home)
 
"When you're playing in front of that crowd, it's a lot easier to get your energy going, your emotions going, something for us to work on as a football team and as a mentality this year. Guys are more comfortable playing at home."
 
SENIOR DEFENSIVE LINEMAN JACQUES SMITH
 
(On needing to be more physical)
 
"Playing in this conference is playing out of the trenches, running the ball, or the inside drill. This will definitely be something to help us prepare for our next opponent."
 
(On being back home)
 
"I think every SEC team has an advantage while playing at home. It is something that we need to continue to learn especially when playing on the road. As we push forward to the Auburn game, playing at home is definitely going to be an advantage to us."
 
(On containing Missouri’s Maty Mauk)
 
"He is a read-pass quarterback. If he doesn't see anything open, he will run the ball. The majority of the time we thought he was trying to throw the ball, but he was just looking for gaps and holes in our defense to run the ball."
 
(On Auburn's rushing attack)
 
"I watched their game against Arkansas at 3 a.m. when I got home. Auburn is pretty sound at running the football and that's something that we're definitely pertaining to this week in practice. That's exactly why we're going back to full pads. We've got to get more physicality in our defensive line play, and we definitely have to stop the run this weekend."
 
(On what makes Auburn's run game so good)
 
"They have a very talented offensive line from what I've seen. They're a type of offensive line that strains really hard, and they won't allow you to get off the block. As a defensive line, that's something we have to do better with is fundamentals and getting off our blocks, staying in our gaps and setting our points and having gap integrity like Coach Jones said before."
 
(On Tre Mason)
 
"He's a very good running back. I think he's one of the leaders in the SEC. He's had a few good games that I've seen. He's a good back, but we're not worried about Tre (Mason). We're more worried about what we can do as a defensive line to get ready to attack Auburn."
 
(On why Tennessee plays better at home)
 
"It's the support of our fan base. To play at home in a place like Neyland, it's always special. Neyland Stadium to me is one of the most special places that you could ever play the game of football in. I love playing here with our fans and the excitement we have on the Vol Walk. It just pumps me up to go out there and give my all for Tennessee."
 
(On the difference in Jeremy Johnson and Nick Marshall)
 
"From that aspect, he's (Johnson) more of a pocket presence, and the Marshall kid, he can definitely beat you with his feet from what I've seen. Almost an exact replica of what we've been seeing the last few weeks. A guy that, if nothing's there to throw at, he's going to take it and run, so with our defense, we've got to have gap integrity, we've got to have all of our points on the quarterback as a defensive line, and we've got to get better at shedding blocks. That's something that we must get better at and that's something that we will [get better at] coming this week."

Tuskegee Airman visits Timberland

Hiram Mann recognizes the crowd at Timberland High School as he receives a standing ovation.
Tuskegee Airman and World War II Veteran, Lt. Col. Hiram E. Mann recently treated Timberland High School students to a speech they will never forget.timberland
A New York City native,timberland discount shoes
During a visit to the school last week, Mann told the students that he found a childhood passion that shaped his adult life.timberland boots on sale
“I was obsessed with model airplanes when I was a kid,” he said. “When (Charles) Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic, that stimulated me into wanting to fly.”timberland fashion boots
Mann was a bellhop at a hotel in Cleveland, Ohio when he applied to aviation school. He was turned down on two different occasions due to his education level, marital status and his race. Persistence paid off, however: he was accepted on his third try to enter the program in 1942.timberland shoes
“If anyone besides your parents tells you that you can’t do something, go out and prove them wrong. Just give it a chance,” he told the students.timberland boots
He went to school in Tuskegee, Ala. where he became part of the famed Tuskegee Airmen, later portrayed in the movie Red Tails. The group was originally called the 332nd Fighter Group until 1972 when their current name took its form. Mann recalled the racial divide that was created on the base.
“They came in and said ‘Negroes on one side of the theatre and whites on the other side,’” he said. “There were ping pong and pool tables in the white club, meanwhile all the blacks, no matter how long they had served, were considered trainees.”
After a student asked him what it was like to change the world, he had a humble reply.
“I can look back and pat myself on the back for our contribution to ending segregation,” he said. “We knew we would not run when we got into combat. The feeling I have today about being a first class citizen, I feel great about it.”
The injustices Mann faced did not deter him from fighting for a distinct purpose.
“This is my country and even though I wasn’t treated fairly, I wanted to keep the Nazis away from my wife, my mother, my grandmother and my country,” he said.
U.S. Department of Homeland Security transportation security and president of the Tuskegee Airman Hiram E. Mann Chapter in Walterboro Barron L. Wilkins invited the students to check out the chapter.
“You don’t have to be in the armed forces and you don’t have to be black. You just have to love the Tuskegee Airmen and appreciate what they accomplished,” he said.
After his time as a P-51D Mustang fighter pilot, Mann earned his bachelor’s degree, masters and doctorate in counseling and worked in the admissions office at the Air Force Academy.
THS Principal Kerry Daugherty took in the speech and recognized the significance of hosting Mann at the school.
“We are very honored to have (Mann) here. It’s not often you have a legend in your school and in Berkeley County we honor legends.”

Thousands in ND face discontinued health care coverage
FARGO – More than 35,000 customers in North Dakota face discontinued health coverage because their plans are being scrapped due to new requirements under the Affordable Care Act.

Patrick Springer , INFORUM


north face jackets FARGO – More than 35,000 customers in North Dakota face discontinued health coverage because their plans are being scrapped due to new requirements under the Affordable Care Act.

the north face outlet online sale The three major health insurers in North Dakota were asked to report to state regulators their enrollment figures and cancellations resulting from the health reform act, commonly known as Obamacare.

the north face sale The state’s largest health insurer, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota, covers about 31,600 members – 17,000 in small groups and 14,600 individuals – whose insurance plans are being discontinued.

north face jackets That combined figure represents 8 percent of the North Dakota Blues’ 400,000 membership total.

the north face outlet online sale Medica sent notices affecting 3,173 members that their policies are being discontinued and informing them of their options.

The Sanford Health Plan sent discontinuation notices to about 450 members, all individuals, whose insurance plans did not meet the new coverage qualifications, which begin to take effect Jan. 1.

That represents about 50 percent of the Sanford plan’s individual policyholders in North Dakota, said Ruth Krystopolski, president of the Sanford Health Plan.

The total number of North Dakota residents who must switch coverage is 35,585, according to the tally by the state Insurance Department.

“You have almost 36,000 North Dakotans who either are or will be losing their health insurance policies, and this is after they and all Americans have been told they will be able to keep their health insurance,” Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm said Friday.

“The Obama administration has to find a way to remedy or fix that situation,” Hamm said, adding that his department has been hearing from consumers affected by the discontinuations.

Most health insurance plans that existed when the law was passed in 2010 are eligible under a “grandfather” status, and therefore do not have to meet all of the requirements of the health care law, health insurers said.

But health insurance plans that made a major change and no longer comply with the Affordable Care Act, or plans purchased after March 23, 2010, are not eligible for the “grandfather clause” exemption.

The Sanford Health Plan did not begin selling policies in North Dakota until late 2010 or early 2011, so none of its coverage plans qualified for the “grandfather clause” exemption, Krystopolski said.

Also, certain requirements under the new law, such as limits on deductible, “out-of-pocket” payments, were not available to insurers until late last year, she said.

“We were working in the blind,” Krystopolski said, continuing to sell policies without knowing all of the new requirements.

“We sold what the market requested,” she added, noting that some customers preferred high-deductible plans with lower premiums.

Under the new requirements, deductibles for individuals or small groups are generally capped at $2,000, with an exception allowing caps of up to $5,000 for individuals and $3,000 for small groups.

Total out-of-pocket expenses now cannot exceed $6,350 for an individual or $12,700 for a family.

Nationally, estimates of the percentage of policies that will be discontinued under the new coverage requirements have ranged from 40 percent to 67 percent, Krystopolski said.

In most cases, plans failed to meet the new requirements because they did not cover maternity care or because the deductibles were too high, she said.

Because of the major changes, Blue Cross Blue Shield has been trying to educate its members for the past two years, including notifying groups and individuals whose insurance plans do not meet the new coverage requirements.

The North Dakota Blues has and will continue to send out notification letters to affected members at least 90 days before their plans end.

Most small-group plans offered by Blue Cross Blue Shield come up for renewal in January and February, whereas most individual coverage renews in May.

Although members can keep their coverage until it expires, some might want to switch to an insurance plan offered under the new health insurance exchange, HealthCare.gov, including those who qualify for tax credits.

Credits, based on income, are available for individuals and families up to 400 percent of federal poverty levels.

People face complicated decisions in selecting the best coverage option, said Luther Stueland, director of health policy for the North Dakota Blues.

“It’s challenging because there’s no right answer for everybody,” he said. “It takes time to walk through it.”

Sanford mailed out its notification letters this week, and most members already should have received the notices, or will soon, Krystopolski said.

Besides collecting information on cancellations, Hamm’s office asked the three major health insurers to report the number of enrollments under the new health insurance marketplace provided by the Affordable Care Act.

As of Friday, the three insurers have logged 30 enrollments covering 37 people, a number Hamm called “concerning.”

“That number is very low,” he said. “The Obama administration has to do something quickly to turn that around,” otherwise health insurance sold through the marketplace might not be viable, Hamm said.

The low enrollment figure to date and large number of policy cancellations affirms North Dakota’s decision not to establish its own marketplace, but to forfeit that role to the federal government, Hamm said.

The rollout of the marketplace’s online insurance portal has been plagued by technical problems, making it difficult or impossible for many to enroll.

Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota has advised people to wait for the “bugs” to be fixed, which administration officials have said will happen by the end of the month.

Roger-Federer
   
   
Apart from his extraordinary success on the tennis court, Roger Federer is a legend far beyond anything that tennis has ever seen. Though, he was not born to poor parents or in a marginalized community yet he has been a transformative figure in the world of tennis in particular and sports in general.
rolex datejust The Swiss master Roger Federer has his name on almost every relevant record that stands in men’s tennis. Apart from records, Roger’s reputation is not only of a remarkable tennis player but also of a great human being whose life is an inspiration to others. Let us analyse some of the aspects of Roger’s impact on tennis apart from regular insights on his playing skills.rolex new 2013 President of the ATP Player Council rolex datejust replica Roger Federer was elected to the ATP Player Council in June 2008 and since then has been serving as the Council’s President which clearly reflects his image and persona on the men’s tour. Under his leadership, the Council has voiced the opinions of professional tennis players and brought about path breaking reforms in the organisational structure of various tournaments.rolex The above statement can be exemplified by the recent increment in the prize money being awarded to tennis players losing out in the early rounds of the Grand Slams. Federer acted like a leader and played a key role in organising his fellow tennis players into a coherent lobbying force which led to USTA ( management behind the US Open) and The All England Club (organizer of The Championships, Wimbledon) announcing a significant hike in prize money.  Roger was also instrumental in USTA’s decision to have a rest day between the semi-finals and the finals of the US Open as it was the only Major that had its last two rounds on consecutive days thus easing off the strain on the finalists. A True Tennis Ambassador Federer has always believed in giving back to the sport in every possible way. This can be corroborated by him playing numerous exhibition matches in different parts of the world. Though, the proceeds of such matches go to a charity or a foundation yet one of the reasons why he participates in such activities is to help popularize the sport or give it a new lease of life. The South American swing at the concluding stages of 2012 is a latest example of his ambassadorial skills. Roger played six matches in the continent and instead of keeping the matches in a tournament format he traversed throughout South America to instigate in the people, an affection and bond towards tennis.  The kind of popularity and affection Roger receives helps elevate tennis to a higher pedestal. People idolize him and want their loved ones to become like him. For some, tennis is not a sport. It’s just a platform to become like Roger Federer. His charisma can be analysed by the statement of former Argentine Pro Jose Luis Clerc who said “There were a lot of No. 1’s in tennis who were playing in Argentina: John McEnroe, Jimmy Connors, Bjorn Borg, all these guys, but I’ve never seen something like this. The reaction of the people, everybody was crazy. It was a great night but a little strange for Juan Martín (Del Potro). He’s at home in Argentina, but they cheer more for Federer”. A Philanthropist at Heart Although Roger Federer is undoubtedly known for his amazing record of Grand Slam victories and his elegant style of play, some may not be aware of his contributions outside the tennis realm. Federer is a philanthropist at heart, traveling out of his way to countries such as South Africa and India to provide charity and support to those who live in poor health conditions, poverty, or victims of natural disasters. Since his establishment of the Roger Federer Foundation in 2003, he has helped “promote access to education, sports and play, and improve the quality where there are no or only insufficient funds available”. This charitable Foundation’s work is primarily concentrated in countries in Africa and Switzerland, where long-term partnerships are made with carefully selected local organizations. In the current year, more than 90,000 children are benefiting from this organization in the nations of Ethiopia, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa, and Switzerland. In India too, Roger has made his presence felt, be it his support towards the Tsunami victims in 2006 or his praise of legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar. A Global Corporate Icon Along with Sachin Tendulkar and Tiger Woods, Roger Federer has started the trend of corporate multi nationals hiring sports persons as their brand ambassadors at a global level. The connection established between the maestro and his fans has showered him the iconic status of an international celebrity which is being fully utilized by companies like Moet and Chandon, Gillette, Mercedes Benz and Rolex who give millions of dollars to him as part of their annual endorsement deals. In 2013 alone, Roger is expected to earn around 70 million dollars from his off court activities. Federer, with his grace, finesse and an impeccable record both on and off court stands as a perfect example of an ambassador and a global icon having transcended all barriers of sport and nationality. Federer has created a platform where tennis is being projected as a means to success and glory. This in turn has given the sport a major impetus in the form of corporate sponsorships and government funding which has further led to more tournaments, bigger prize money and greater media attention.  In the words of Fabien Ohl, a sports sociologist “Federer’s nationality has little significance abroad, where people attach other values that are closer to their own culture. It’s his personality that created the difference. In India, China, Japan and Pakistan for example he’ll be seen more as the ideal of the Western man who succeeds”. In all Roger Federer has been just the type of superstar the sport of tennis needed in the 21st century. His demeanour towards the sport both on and off court has greatly helped the game gain major importance in the global sports industry today. Exemplary tennis skills and a humble character have made the Basel native the perfect idol and ‘just what tennis needed after Agassi and Sampras’ in today’s world.

Richemont's Lancel: a risky bet

Comment on this story hermes discount store
Reuters.hermes handbag outlet
A Lancel logo is seen on a luxury leather bag displayed in the window of the Lancel showroom in Paris, October 21, 2013. Potential buyers of Lancel see reviving the loss-making leather goods maker as a high-risk gamble that could take at least six or eight years to pay off, sources close to the matter say. Facing a struggle to offload the business, Swiss parent Richemont would be ready to pay for two years of losses - up to an estimated 20 million euros ($28 million) - to entice bidders, the sources say.

Richemont to sell off non-performing unit
Paris - Potential buyers of Lancel see reviving the loss-making leather goods maker as a high-risk gamble that could take at least six or eight years to pay off, sources close to the matter say.
Facing a struggle to offload the business, Swiss parent Richemont would be ready to pay for two years of losses - up to an estimated 20 million euros ($28 million) - to entice bidders, the sources say.
So far private equity firms Change Capital and Lion Capital have expressed interest while Asian group Swire is looking to team up with a private equity firm to make a bid, according to the sources.
Another potential buyer, who has not made up his mind yet, is Jacques Veyrat, the former chief executive of private French trading group Louis Dreyfus who used to run its Neuf Cegetel telecoms unit.
Veyrat left Louis Dreyfus in 2011 with a golden parachute of 270 million euros, according to the French press. He has since set up the Impala group, which invests in companies in distress.
Veyrat, Swire, Lion Capital and Change Capital declined to comment, as did Lancel and Richemont.
People close to the talks say the bidding process for Lancel, which had already been going on for months, could last several more weeks.
Lancel is run part-time by Fabrizio Cardinali, chief executive of Dunhill, another Richemont brand.
Lancel has hired a new designer, Nicole Stulman, who was previously at Reed Krakoff, Hermes and Celine and does not have a head of merchandising to work with since that person has left for Dunhill, sources close to the sale process said.
Other key people at the company are either on sick leave or have not been replaced, the sources said.
Lancel's difficulties come as the luxury sector as a whole remains resilient despite a slowdown in China, continuing to grow, although at a slower pace than in previous years.
 
PRIVATE EQUITY
The relationship between private equity and fashion brands can be difficult because the typical three- to five-year investment horizon may be too short to turn a label around.
Private equity deals are usually financed by debt, which puts pressure on the fashion brand when it needs to invest in marketing and new shops.
Lanvin, acquired by Taiwanese media magnate Shaw-Lan Wang from L'Oreal in 2001, took more than seven years to become profitable. TPG struggled for nine years to restructure the leather goods brand Bally before selling it in 2008.
There have been few successful revamps of struggling brands that are still going concerns. Carven, Balenciaga and Lanvin lay dormant for decades before they were acquired, allowing their new owners to make a fresh start.
Lancel was founded by accessories designer Angèle Lancel in 1876, remaining in the hands of her descendants until it was acquired in the late 1970s by the Zorbibe bothers, who with then chief executive Sidney Toledano, now Dior chief executive, launched the hit bucket-shaped Elsa bag and made Lancel a profitable business.
Industry executives say Lancel was making margins higher than Louis Vuitton - today's market leader - when Richemont bought it in 1997.
“All my girlfriends in the 1990s dreamt of having a Lancel bag,” said Serge Carreira, who lectures on luxury at the Institut d'Etudes Politiques in Paris, known as “Sciences Po”.
Lancel had not expanded internationally or creatively as its rivals did, he said.
Lancel makes more than 80 percent of its sales in France and in the year to end June, it had an operating loss of 10 million euros on revenues of 135 million euros, sources close to the matter said.
Richemont, the world's second biggest luxury group, does not publish separate sales and profit figures for its brands, which include Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels.
Longchamp, founded in 1948 and still owned by the founding Cassegrain family, has annual sales of 500 million euros.
 
“ELECTRIC SHOCK”
“What Lancel needs in an electric shock in terms of design, marketing, store concept and image,” says Boston Consulting Group senior partner Jean-Marc Bellaiche.
Analysts say Lancel needs to enter the accessible segment of the luxury market, alongside Coach, Michael Kors and Longchamp with handbags costing 200-800 euros.
Lancel lost credibility at the high end of the luxury market by offering excessive discounts and putting out staid, old-fashioned designs, such as the Brigitte Bardot bag in 2010 - a 1970s style version of the bucket bag - and the document holder Isabelle Adjani bag in 2008.
“Lancel's products, while perfectly fine, look a bit dated and are not a must-buy,” said Hugh Devlin, a consultant at legal firm Withers LLP, who specialises in luxury and fashion brands.
“With the right creative team and strategy, that could definitely change but whoever buys it will need to be prepared to take a risk.”
Lancel clearly thinks it can make it as a luxury brand. A few months ago, it introduced an ostrich leather “L” bag costing 4,500 euros, emulating Gucci and Louis Vuitton's recent efforts to move upmarket.
Carreira disagrees. “You do not become a luxury brand because you sell a bag for 4,000 euros,” he said.
To rebuild its name in the crowded accessories market, experts say Lancel should do some ready-to-wear, as Longchamp did, to stimulate traffic in shops and rejuvenate itself.
Another potential investor who looked at Lancel said it had suffered from under-investment and excessive management turnover.
Having had about a dozen chief executives since 1997, the company will now need to be given time by its new owners to implement long-term strategy, industry observers said. - Reuters

October 2007 Quarterly Update

I had my quarterly PET/CT scans, along with the review by Dr. Goy's office - all good!

Dr. Goy was traveling, so one of his associates reveiwed me. I thought this would be good, to get a 'second opinion' kind of thing; a review from someone not as familiar with my case. However, I do like having Dr. Goy review my case, and will hold out for him next time. He knows the whole story, and it's good to have that history.

The scans were clean, and the review good. After the next quarterly, they can move to semi-annually.

I'm going for a colonoscopy/endoscopy as part of an annual scan, and will have those results shortly. A number of friends are being scheduled for them now - as they're either 50, or nearing it, and my advice is constant - it's no big deal (sedation is a good thing). The fasting is the wosrt part!

The family's been doing well, just returned from a vacation to Florida to see some family, as well as Mickey and Universal. Family and work are good, and we're just doing our thing...

Thanks for checking in,
John

July 2007 Quarterly Update - good stuff!

I had my PET/CT scans done yesterday, and met with Dr. Goy today.

A good checkup by the good doctor, and I was on my way. Not much to report, but that's a good thing!

I feel great, am working hard, enjoying summer, looking forward to some vacation, and life and the family are great. Thanks to all that read this, and for your support.

Again, best wishes to everyone involved with this, we hear Stephen's doing well, Jim's going to see Dr. Goy on Monday, and seems to be status quo, and I'm hoping everyone else is doing great.

Have a great summer!
John

Youth Build Leadership, Art, Life Skills in One-of-a-Kind Internship Program at The Crucible
Unique program, now in its 5th year, finishes at the end of this week, July 26.
Crucible FUEGO interns are helping other youth to learn blacksmithing, welding, glass blowing, jewelry making and other industrial arts at The Crucible in West Oakland.
Oakland, California (PRWEB) July 25, 2013

tiffany A diverse group of Bay Area youth are completing a unique summer teaching and learning experience as interns at The Crucible, West Oakland’s non-profit industrial arts and education warehouse space located on 7th Street.


cheap tiffany & co Hailing from West Oakland, Richmond, Alameda, Lafayette and San Francisco, the interns are helping to teach classes in welding, jewelry making, glass blowing & flame working, and blacksmithing. While each has already learned to work in one of these areas, the internship places them in new roles, teaching other young people to create in these mediums. The Crucible often hires interns as teachers in their own right.


tiffany jewelry outlet “This is about more than just creating with glass, metal and fire – these interns are learning deeper lessons about integrity, a sense of self, values, public speaking, conflict resolution and how to be a teacher and a leader,” said Stephanie Krause, a teacher at Oakland Tech high school who manages the program. “Many of these kids were exposed to The Crucible as students in one of our summer camps, or on a school field trip. Through that process, some of them emerge as candidates and we work to develop their potential,” she said.


tiffany jewelry outlet Key Details
FUEGO Internship Program: July 14 – 26, 2013
The Crucible 1260 7th Street @ Union, West Oakland


cheap tiffany & co Photo opportunities at noon sharp on:
    Tuesday 7/23 (glass flame working)
    Wednesday 7/24 (blacksmithing)
    Thursday 7/25 (jewelry making)
    Friday 7/26 (glassblowing)


cheap tiffany For 18 year-old Tiffany Sanders, a West Oakland resident, The Crucible began as a path to high-school graduation. “I’ve been involved in this program for two months. I started taking a class here in school to make up credits. After I got the credits and graduated, my teacher told me about The Crucible’s summer program, so now I’m an intern here… I’m using my skills, I’m doing something that’s meaningful and helpful to me, and I’m really enjoying what I do… I want to be a photographer, and after taking this program, it makes me want to be a photographer more.” She said.


16 year-old Abdullah Hamden, also from West Oakland said, “It’s inspired me to be to be a better artist by creating not just art itself, but tools, too. Last week, for instance, I made a piece; it was just an ornament, and I thought to myself, ‘If art could serve a better purpose, it would be a better art. If I could make this into a tool, it’d be better.’ So I made an ornament, but I added a tool to it – it serves a purpose now. While using the tool, you can also enjoy it.”


17 year-old Jazzy Schwinges-Williams from Alameda explains: “We had a neighbor who got my mom a job and told her about The Crucible, and ever since then, I’ve gotten a bunch of scholarships here. It’s the only outlet I’ve ever had for art, because we couldn’t afford any other camps or programs. It’s a really great place to be, and has inspired me greatly.”


18 year-old Gemma Baumer, of San Francisco, tells her story: “One area I’ve really grown in is reading students’ body language. You can tell when someone needs help. With glass blowing, there’s a lot of body awareness, and you’re carrying heavy things with molten hot glass on the bottom, so it’s pretty important that you don’t get in people’s way – and when you see someone standing there, swinging it around, you think ‘they need help’.”


Funding for the internships comes from CASS, a West Oakland metal recycling facility and manufacturer of aluminum ingot. “We are proud of our partnership with The Crucible and the opportunity to provide young people with exposure and access to a unique learning environment. We've made a commitment to support youth in the West Oakland community, and this is a fantastic opportunity for these kids,” said CASS CEO Edward Kangeter IV.


“Youth programs are a core part of The Crucible’s mission. Our internship program is not just about making art, it’s about developing leadership skills, professional development and helping these young people to build a portfolio of accomplishments they can point to as they build their lives,” said Crucible Youth Programs Director Carla Hall.

Best Campground — With no changes from 2012 results, voters chose Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park for the best campground, it’s seventh straight year. Jellystone Park is located just south of Fort Atkinson. Pilgrim’s Campground on County Trunk C west of Fort Atkinson used a compass in second, while River Bend Resort, rural Watertown, ate some trail mix in third.


Best Cinema — Camera perspective hasn’t changed for seven-time winner AMC Theaters, formerly Star Cinema, in Johnson Creek. Highway 18 Outdoor Theater in Jefferson zoomed in for second. Six-time runner up Whitewater Theaters panned out to third.


Best Fundraising Event — Tomorrow’s Hope in Jefferson was voted to first place for the first time. The Jefferson Cab Rides for Seniors’ breakfast fundraiser took second, landing on the board for the first time. Six-time winner, the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life fell to third.


Best Golf Course — Koshkonong Mounds Country Club scored an ace again, the club’s fourth win in this category. Spring Creek in Cold Spring hit a birdie in second, with Jefferson Golf Course chipping the ball up onto the green in third.

Fuzzy Pig’s Shockwave Haunts in Whitewater lurked into second and Busy Barns squirmed in third.


Best Library — Voters chose seven-time winner Fort Atkinson’s Dwight Foster Public Library as a primary information source. The Jefferson Public Library renewed second place with L.D. Fargo library in Lake Mills reserving a book in third.


Best Museum/Historical Society — Our 27th seven-time winning exhibitor, the Hoard Historical Museum (which includes the Dairy Shrine and the Foster House) was voted top area museum. Jefferson Historical Society collected artifacts in second place, and Whitewater Depot displayed in third.


Best “Night on the Town” — Pictured below, voters named dinner and a show at The Fireside Dinner Theatre in Fort Atkinson the best night on the town — for the seventh time. Helenville’s Wingin’ It boasts the second best night, with the Fort’s Rhythm on the River earning a third place title.


Best Park — Another seven-time winner, Jones Park, located off Janesville Avenue in Fort Atkinson, got another home run. Jones Park, known as the area’s premier baseball park, also hosts Lions Club Corn & Chicken Roast, Community Cruise Nights and Baseball Fest. Fort’s Rock River Park collected tallies for second. Dorothy Carnes Park, west of Fort, received enough votes for third.

Best Place to Watch the Big Game — In a five-year shutout, Sal’s Sports Bar once again takes home the trophy. Wingin’ It came in as an underdog for second, and Capn’s Roadhouse kept its third place finish from last season.


Best Place to Watch the Sunset — Lake Koshkonong is apparently the place as all three of our top finishers hail from its banks. Sunset Bar & Grill received top honors for the tavern’s view for the first time since its 2007 six-way tie for first. Voters enjoyed Koshkonong Mounds Country Club enough for second place. The general view west over Lake Koshkonong came in for a third place finish.


Best Place to Work Out — For the third year in a row, Anytime Fitness was voted the best place to get fit. Snap Fitness kept the same routine as last year and finished second. Crossfit used the principle of progression to move up to third.


Best Thing for Adults to Do in the Area — Voters chose visiting the Glacial Heritage Bike Trail as the number one activity for adults, whether it be for biking, walking or running. Voted second best thing for adults to do was visit various watering holes around the readership area, with golfing coming in third.


“Miscellaneous” division winners

Third place goes to the Hwy. 26 bypass, specifically to the 65mph speed limit hike around Fort Atkinson and Jefferson.


Area Needs . . . Public ATV trails. Other suggestions included a small movie theatre in Fort or Jefferson, a Target, an Applebees, a “sweet arcade” and a skate park. As always, we had plenty of votes for more jobs and more retail to fill empty buildings around area downtowns.

Long Overlooked, the Flourishing Philippines
By Robb Young
30 July, 2013

chanel The Philippines has long been overshadowed by its larger neighbours and underestimated by international fashion brands. Now the country is reporting faster economic growth than China. BoF reports.

chanel outlet store MANILA, Philippines — Mingle long enough with the Filipino jet-set and you’re bound to hear a recurring quip delivered as an explanation for a surprisingly wide range of phenomena: “Don’t forget, we spent 300 years in the convent and 50 years in Hollywood.”


chanel bags outlet stores Meant primarily as a droll reference to the Philippines’ history of colonisation — first by Catholic Imperial Spain, then by the US — this cheeky turn of phrase alludes to the unique cultural legacy that sets this country apart from its South East Asian neighbours. For many in the local fashion industry, the refrain also serves as a blunt instrument often used to measure a product’s sales potential. But if the past decade of vigorous market development has shown anything, it’s that typecasting the upmarket Filipino shopper as a customer who relies on an incongruous mix of restraint, opulent details and classic glamour is a sorely out-dated notion.


chanel purses outlet “Because of sheer numbers, the status-seeker remains the most popular [type of consumer],” says Carla Sibal, founder of Filipino lifestyle magazine Spark and a former chief editor of fashion monthly Mega , which has been on the country’s newsstands for over two decades. “However, the fashion-forward [Filipino] consumer has always been voracious. [Traditionally] they travel to Hong Kong, Singapore and the US to shop for the latest trends… but the potential for growth in this segment within the Philippines is now tremendous.”


chanel outlet With Hong Kong a mere two-hour hop across the South China Sea, the shopping mecca has long been a favourite haunt of well-heeled Filipinos tired of the selection in Manila — not to mention the inflated prices, due to hefty import duties. But today, many more international brands are present in the Philippines and offer a better product assortment than ever before, thanks mostly to a handful of joint-venture and franchise operators, including Store Specialists Inc (SSI), H & F Retail Concepts and smaller players like Trio Marketing Adventures. Price differentials, although still a hindrance, are not a barrier big enough to prevent the market’s continued expansion.


chanel handbags replica Around 10 years ago, at the height of Nicolas Ghesquière fever, when wearing one of his designs for Balenciaga signalled a cool insider’s knowledge of fashion, Mark “Jappy” Gonzalez was in the process of persuading the brand to let him buy stock for his Manila-based, multibrand boutique Homme et Femme. A few years later, he found himself negotiating with the French maison once again, but this time for the franchise rights to open the first Balenciaga monobrand store in the Philippines, through his new venture H & F Retail Concepts. Since then, Gonzalez has added a Comme des Garçons store, a Y-3 store and seven Fred Perry stores to his portfolio.


“It’s been a long and often bumpy road, but as a culture, Filipinos are resilient and natural survivors. What we [finally] enjoy today — a politically and economically stable state — has been a result of nearly three decades of dedication by the people,” says Gonzalez. He adds: “Retail expansion opportunities arose here not only from economic activity but also from key developments in real estate.”


Manila’s Rustan’s department store has been importing designer and luxury goods since the 1950s, when this landmark emporium was virtually the only commercial space in the country that was suitable for international fashion brands. But in the early 1990s, property giants like Rockwell Land, Ayala Land, the Kuok Group and SM Prime Holdings began rolling out mid-tier and upmarket malls, resulting in congregations of fashion brands clustered around Shangri-La Plaza in Manila’s Ortigas district and Ayala Center in the Makati district, among others.


At the same time, Rustan’s spun off its joint-venture distribution enterprise, Store Specialists Inc (SSI), and began opening free-standing stores in these malls for brands including Armani Exchange, Gucci, Prada, Debenhams and Zara. Today, SSI remains the dominant local player under the leadership of Anton Tantoco Huang (grandson of Rustan’s founders Gliceria Rustia and Bienvenido Tantoco) who has helped expand the family firm’s ventures to encompass partnerships with international brands like Marc Jacobs, Burberry and Michael Kors.


“It’s interesting to note that there has also been a race [by many players] to bring in brands like Chanel for several years now,” says Sibal. “But it’s unfortunate that they are ignorant to the real profit opportunities the market currently offers. While they’ve repeatedly declined a presence in the Philippines, other luxury brands continue to thrive. At Bulgari and Louis Vuitton, which are both present, for example, it’s not uncommon to see bags of cash being paid for [some of the priciest] goods… And Hermès Philippines general manager Mario Katigbak has told me that they’ve had orders for bespoke oversized crocodile Birkin bags that require the skin of a 30-foot crocodile and retail for over $44,000.”


For many years, the wealth of the Philippines was both underestimated and overlooked by luxury brands, in part because this wealth was difficult to quantify. “The typical Filipino who has recently come into wealth often times holds on to old beliefs and traditions when it pertains to money,” explains Sibal. “That’s why it’s difficult to objectively measure how much someone earns or saves, because many still rely on putting money ‘under the mattress’ [which can lead to] many things being undeclared simply because of custom… But the truth remains that sales are robust and the market appetite continues to grow.”


For Eman Pineda, founder of Manila’s trend-setting multibrand concept store Adora, which sells labels like Chloé, Valentino and Proenza Schouler, the Philippines market has shown a marked evolution since he first opened shop five years ago. While many of the high-end brands entering the Philippines back then tended to focus on accessories, “the nice thing about it, now, is it’s not just the usual entry level items,” he says.


According to Bain & Company’s May 2013 update to its Luxury Goods Worldwide Market Study, the Philippines is one of the six South East Asian countries (in addition to Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia) that the management consultancy firm now considers to be “driving Asian growth” since China’s economy has slowed. In fact, the firm goes on to estimate the luxury market in the Philippines, alone, to be worth €300 million (about $400 million, at current exchange rates). And although this is about the same figure attributed to Vietnam, which has a similarly sized population, the Philippines has consistently received considerably less attention than its nearest neighbour to the west. Presumably, Vietnam’s faster growth trajectory has appeared more exciting to luxury observers than that of the Philippines, even though investment in Manila may have reaped comparable rewards. But even more eye-opening is when the Philippines is compared to the headline-grabbing giant to the south, Indonesia, with almost triple the population but a luxury market only twice as large.


Just last month, the authors of another recent study, Wealth Report Asia, by Swiss private banking group Julius Baer, spelled out the situation clearly: “The economic rise of the Philippines has been overshadowed by [that of its] larger neighbours, but the strides made in recent years have placed it on an exciting path.”


To wit, the most recent macroeconomic numbers coming out of the country are impressive. Its gross domestic product grew by 7.8 percent in the first quarter of 2013, beating most forecasts and outpacing China for the very first time. The Philippines has also secured good investment grade status after Standard & Poor’s became the second major agency, after Fitch, to raise the country’s credit rating.


Not counting a few tumbles in recent weeks, Manila’s PSEI index has also been the region’s best-performing stock market index this year, excluding Japan, according to the Financial Times . Admittedly, the local currency, the peso, has been volatile this month and has therefore negatively affected some other indicators, but much of this has been attributed to external forces (quantitative easing by the US Federal Reserve) and has hit nearly all emerging markets in Asia. Most analysts remain highly optimistic about the Philippines, overall and within the apparel sector.


Euromonitor International’s Singapore-based emerging market analyst Jason Wong says growth of the Philippines apparel market outpaced the market average of 7 percent for the Asia-Pacific region last year. “Its more dynamic growth is a result of the entry of numerous fast fashion brands. These include international brands such as Uniqlo, Cotton On and G-Star Raw. Existing brands such as Forever 21 and Liu Jo continue to expand their number of outlets in the Philippines. Internet retailing has also experienced a notable increase in apparel sales, especially after the entry of brands Zalora and Lazada,” he adds.


Wong’s upbeat outlook is shared by Sibal, who reports that, thanks to the country’s growing middle class, Bershka and Stradivarius have also opened in Manila, joining other well-established Spanish brands like Zara and Mango.


“This is the most exciting segment of the market,” she says. “And popular brands serving the middle classes are highly likely to be welcomed with enthusiasm. This, fuelled by the growing BPO (business process outsourcing) industry… and the increasing remittances from the 10 million OFWs (overseas Filipino workers) abroad are the main drivers for the current economic boom. Children of OFWs are image-driven and eager to show people their status has improved — thus the increased desire for branded and designer items.”


Following the second wave of upmarket malls which took root in Manila in the 2000s with the arrival of Rockwell Center’s Power Plant Mall and Greenbelt Malls in Makati, in the last few years development has concentrated around Fort Bonifacio High Street and the SM Aura Premier Mall in the Taguig district.


“Returning to Manila recently after being away for almost two years left me unprepared for the change in landscape,” recalls Sibal, who had been in Europe reformatting Spark for international distribution. “There were new buildings, malls, and whole shopping districts that emerged. There was a palpable feeling of vibrancy.”


Indeed, Adora’s Pineda believes that, despite being both overshadowed by its Asian neighbours and misunderstood by international players, “the Philippines has recently been increasingly on the radar of those in the fashion industry. I definitely believe that international perceptions about the country are changing…. After all, Asia is what’s driving the world economy and the Philippines is a part of that.”

IFeme Uchenna from United Kingdom 30 July, 2013 at 4:49 PM

This article is long overdue. Having spent this summer in the Philippines, I have become aware of the vastness of consumerism that is prevalent in this country. On the outside it may seem like the Philippines is a poor little third world country with no room to grow, but on the inside the rising middle class and thrumming upper class is ready to throw their money at everything from the latest Gucci collections or the next foreign real estate conglomerate that steps ashore. The Philippines is key to cracking the Asian luxury market and I hope more companies will soon see that.

TAMBURI DI RIALZO PER PIAZZA AFFARI. ED E’ FIAT IL TITOLO PIU’ SOTTOVALUTATO. L’INTERVISTA AL PRESIDENTE DI TIP.
13 agosto 2013 by Roberta Rossi Leave a Comment
Condividi e seguici!
Tweet

moncler La sua società, che ha anche il suo nome nella ditta, è quotata a Piazza Affari dal 2005 e negli ultimi anni il titolo è stato fra le small cap che ha dato maggiori soddisfazioni ai suoi azionisti grazie all’andamento dei corsi e ai dividendi staccati.


moncler outlet online Ma l’angoscia di Giovanni Tamburi, presidente di Tamburi Investment Partner (TIP) e banchiere d’affari di lungo corso è il prezzo delle sue azioni nonostante in quest’ultima settimana la Borsa sembra aver in parte riscoperto il suo titolo dopo una serie di notizie una più positiva dell’altra.


buy moncler Un investitore privato dal Qatar ha infatti comprato la quota di maggioranza della grande catena commerciale francese Printemps da Borletti e dalla Deutsche Bank (per 1,75 miliardi di euro) e, a cascata, la Tamburi Investments Partners (Tip) ha incassato 42 milioni di euro e una “simpatica” plusvalenza di 33 milioni.


moncler outlet store locations Annunciata questa operazione dopo pochi giorni TIP ha annunciato un’altra operazione questa volta in acquisto molto rilevante. L’ingresso tramite la propria controllata Clubsette S.r.l.del 14% di Ruffini Partecipazioni, società controllata da Remo Ruffini che detiene il 32% del gruppo Moncler.

buy moncler  


Una società famosa in tutto il mondo nell’abbigliamento invernale e il cui approdo prossimo dovrebbe essere la Borsa con una valutazione che potrebbe oscillare fra i 2 e i 3 miliardi di euro se si tiene conto dei multipli che girano oggi nel settore del lusso. E che può contare su una fortissima redditività nel settore: Moncler nel 2012 ha fatturato 624 milioni di euro con un margine operativo lordo di 170 milioni di euro, in crescita del 39% rispetto all’anno precedente.


Ma nonostante questa pioggia di buone notizie accompagnate ieri da alcuni report molto positivi sul titolo pubblicati da banche d’affari come Integrae ed Equita (che hanno confermato il giudizio “buy” con target price rispettivamente di 2,5 euro e 2,1 euro) Giovanni Tamburi vede il suo titolo troppo bistrattato dal mercato.


“ E’ troppo basso. La nostra società vale ben di più. E’ un mio grande cruccio che Piazza Affari non ci valuti ancora come dovrebbe. Personalmente mi sono dovuto fermare a fare acquisti sui titoli della mia società perché sapevo che nell’operazione Printemps la nostra uscita come soci avrebbe generato una plusvalenza importante (oltre 30 milioni di euro). Ho però continuato come società quotata a procedere al riacquisto delle azioni proprie spingendo al massimo possibile per quello che consente la legge il buy back. Da inizio anno abbiamo così raddoppiato la presenza da poco più del 2 al 4% di azioni proprie detenute perché crediamo fortemente nella sottovalutazione della nostra società. Il mercato fino a oggi ci ha snobbato e preferisce scommettere su altre storie anche perché non è forse facile far capire il nostro mestiere e la nostra storia. Ma sono convinto che il mercato si accorgerà di questa sottovalutazione e peraltro in questi ultimi 3 e 5 anni abbiamo sovraperformato come titolo sia in Italia che in Europa l’indice delle small cap europee”.


La specialità di TIP è diventare partner finanziario di società quotate e non quotate, cercando di accompagnarle nello sviluppo. La vostra strategia è entrare come azionisti di minoranza ma in modo attivo. Quali sono le più importanti partecipazione che detenete fra le non quotate?


“Veniamo considerati una società di private equity e oggi nel nostro portafoglio le società quotate pesano per circa il 65% e quelle non quotate per il 35%. Gli investimenti più importanti fra le aziende non quotate sono ora quelli fatti su Moncler e poi il secondo è quello in Intercos, società specializzata in profumi e cosmetici che di fatto è il leader mondiale nelle forniture per i più grandi marchi da Lancome a L’Oreal a Proter&Gamble.


E’ una società con 400 milioni di euro di fatturato circa e 50 milioni di euro di ebitda.


Il nostro portafoglio di società quotate comprende invece diverse società di cui deteniamo direttamente e indirettamente importanti quote di partecipazioni come Amplifon, Bolzoni, Datalogic, Servizi Italia, Prysmian fra le più note”.



Quando investite in una società non quotata utilizzate gli stessi criteri che usate per decidere se entrare in una società quotata? Ovvero come ha spiegato in una presentazione “qualità ed affidabilità del management”, “esistenza di peculiarità commerciali ed industriali” , “possibilità concrete di avere un ruolo di socio attivo”, “possibili evoluzioni aziendali o nella struttura azionaria”…


 


“Sì per noi è assolutamente irrilevante che una società sia quotata o meno. E’ solo un dettaglio tecnico. Noi non facciamo operazioni di buy out ovvero rileviamo il pacchetto di controllo di aziende magari caricando il debito sulla società bersaglio. E quindi operiamo con le caratteristiche che lei ha descritto come investitori di medio-lungo periodo con una posizione di minoranza ma entrando quasi sempre nel consiglio di amministrazione e quindi per noi non c’è differenza da questo punto di vista fra Prysmian e Moncler, Intercos e Interpump.


Il nostro approccio e specializzazione è più sul lato finanziario dove porto anche la mia esperienza personale di quasi 40 anni nel settore. Abbiamo da molto tempo la sensazione che in Europa e in Italia i top manager sono focalizzati più su tematiche industriali che finanziarie e il nostro valore aggiunto può essere proprio quello di fornire non solo mezzi freschi ma anche questo know how”.


Può fare un esempio concreto?


“Il caso dell’azienda Interpump di cui siamo azionisti da molti anni è piuttosto esemplificativo del nostro possibile contributo. E’ un’ottima società, leader mondiale nel suo settore, e in tempi non sospetti già nel 2005-2006 abbiamo consigliato al suo management di puntare a finanziarsi sul lungo termine perché temevo un credit crunch e la chiusura dei rubinetti del credito. Questa società ha seguito il nostro consiglio, aprendo linee di finanziamento a lungo termine per poi crescere e mettere a segno acquisizioni nel settore. Con il crollo dei mercati poi il titolo era sceso da 8 a 2 nel 2008-2009 e il nostro consiglio è stato quello di varare un aumento di capitale con warrant. Un modo per mettere fieno in cascina e fare un’operazione a favore di tutti i soci. Oggi il titolo è tornato vicino agli 8 euro, quando la società ha dovuto fare acquisizioni aveva i soldi in cassa e tutti hanno guadagnato e moltissimo (compresi i piccoli risparmiatori) da quell’aumento di capitale. Un altro caso interessante è stata l’operazione in Amplifon. E’ una società che seguivamo da tempo e ci piaceva ma non volevamo entrare acquistando le azioni in Borsa perché quando ci muoviamo non siamo un peso piuma e avremmo spostato troppo il titolo. Ho parlato allora all’amministratore delegato di Amplifon, Franco Moscetti e gli ho dato la disponibilità della nostra società a entrare nel capitale nel caso che la società avesse varato un aumento di capitale riservato per la realizzazione di un’operazione importante. E così quando Franco Moscetti, l’amministratore delegato di Amplifon, ha deciso di portare l’azienda in Australia, con un investimento da 300 milioni, è partito avendo in tasca una nostra lettera che gli garantiva la nostra disponibilità a partecipare per 100 milioni”.


Il settore del private equity a che punto è? Il credit crunch e la crisi Lehman come hanno cambiato questo mercato? Da come parla sembra che nel vostro caso è stato un fatto positivo per la vostra società…


“Fra il 2009 e il 2012 abbiamo fatto cose che non ha fatto nessuno anche perché avevamo tanti soldi in cassa e abbiamo potuto approfittarne per mettere a segno acquisizioni e operazioni importanti. Dal 1° gennaio 2010 al 2012 abbiamo investito quasi 500 milioni di euro e siamo fra i primi investitori italiani e fra i primi anche in Europa.


Nel periodo 2006-2007 quando dicevo nelle interviste che sarebbe arrivata la crisi tutti mi davano del cretino e ci criticavano perché avevamo tanti soldi in cassa che non utilizzavamo. Il tempo ci ha dato ragione e oggi tutto il mondo del private equity è profondamente cambiato”.


Come?


“Chi fa il private equity classico per come lo si faceva fino a qualche anno fa è fuori dal tempo. Questo modello è proliferato negli ultimi 30 anni iniettando soprattutto debito nelle aziende. E in alcuni casi questo modello ha fatto un pessimo servizio all’economia perché ha spremuto troppo le aziende, ha emesso troppo debito (caricandolo sulla società acquisita), occupandosi troppo degli interessi degli azionisti di maggioranza. Oggi il private equity si fa in modo sano con una leva equilibrata, senza grandi debiti e capitale proprio cercando di investire nel lungo termine nell’interesse di tutti. Peraltro andare da una banca per farsi finanziare un’operazione a leva è praticamente impossibile: se va in un grande istituto gli chiede credito per farsi finanziare un’operazione di questo tipo il banchiere la guarderà come un matto perché ha già i suoi problemi nel gestire e rientrare dalle sue operazioni nel settore”.



Immagino che sull’operazione Moncler ci fossero anche altre società interessate, anche più grandi di TIP, a diventare soci di Remo Ruffini, il patron dell’azienda? Come è riuscito a convincerlo?


“Mi ha ascoltato per non più di quarto d’ora e gli ho spiegato le stesse cose che spiego ora a lei. E il numero 1 di Moncler ha capito che solo noi in Italia avevamo a cuore il destino della sua azienda. E ci ha scelto. E può telefonare pure a Ruffini per chiedergli conferma di quello che le ho detto”.


Quanti soldi avete in cascina per fare ulteriori eventuali acquisizioni in TIP dopo l’operazione Moncler?


“Come soldi diretti fra i 100 e i 150 milioni di euro. Ma con i club deal (partnership fra TIP e altri imprenditori) possiamo disporre di capitali quasi illimitati perché ci sono alcune delle più importanti famiglie di imprenditori in Italia che sono nostre socie in Tamburi o sono interessate di volta in volta a entrare con altre quote delle cassaforti di famiglia in singole operazioni come è accaduto ora con Moncler. All’inizio su questa operazione volevamo fare quote di 10 milioni di euro per ciascun socio che voleva partecipare anche personalmente ma poi abbiamo dovuto abbassare il gettone a 5 milioni di euro perché erano in tanti a voler entrare e ancora oggi mi chiamano molti imprenditori perché avrebbero voluto partecipare”.


Quando è nata la vostra azienda la missione annunciata era quella di selezionare “tech stocks”. Invece vedendo come è andata avete virato decisamente dalla new alla old economy, guardando le operazioni che avete messo a segno…. Magazzini, arredamento (Roche Bobois), piumini.


“E’ cambiato anche il mercato ma gli stessi analisti ci hanno fatto capire che una società come la nostra dove puntare sulle eccellenze e diversificare, cercando di cogliere a largo raggio le opportunità d’investimento senza concentrarsi troppo”.


Qualche tempo fa ha dichiarato che in Borsa il titolo Fiat è uno dei migliori da comprare. Lo pensa sempre e perché?


“Assolutamente sì. Fiat è una società considerata legata al mercato italiano e alla difficile situazione del mercato automobilistico continentale ma di fatto è oramai una società americana con un redditività e un fatturato soprattutto estero. Se non fosse quotata a Milano ma a Wall Street o in Olanda (come sarà per Fiat Industrial e con la fusione con CNH) il mercato la valuterebbe in modo più congruo e secondo me il titolo entro fine anno potrebbe arrivare anche a 8 euro che è il suo prezzo più giusto.


Se fosse una preda alla nostra portata ci farei sicuramente un pensiero ma peraltro Sergio Marchionne non ha certo bisogno dei nostri consigli in tema di finanza. E’ un maestro e tanto di cappello al lavoro che ha fatto e sta facendo.”.



Come giudica da esperto di lungo corso le quotazioni di Piazza Affari e lo stato di salute dell’Italia?


“Le quotazioni di Piazza Affari sono mediamente molto basse e fra le blue chips società come Fiat o Luxottica rappresentano dei casi ancora molto interessanti. Pesa troppo in modo ingiustificato il “rischio Italia”. Riguardo le valutazioni delle società in Borsa i prezzi poi non riflettono in molti casi il vero valore. Le oscillazioni spesso repentine non trovano giustificazione col valore delle aziende che si calcolano in base al cash flow, alla redditività, alle prospettive di sviluppo, dalla serietà del management. Quando calcolo il valore delle società io guardo al lungo termine e questo prescinde dall’andamento contingente dei mercati che spesso prende delle solenni cantonate. Si pensi all’11 settembre e cosa accadde alle quotazioni nei giorni successivi. Nell’immediato sembrava che il mondo dovesse finire con crolli generalizzati: se si riguardano oggi i grafici quel movimento nel lungo periodo sembra un dentino minimo all’ingiù poi ricomposto”.


E la situazione dell’Italia dal punto di vista politico-finanziario come la vede, la preoccupa?


“Se dobbiamo guardare alla situazione politica, della finanza pubblica e delle infrastrutture non siamo messi benissimo. Ma in un Europa che non ha comunque consentito il crac a nazioni come la Grecia, il Portogallo o Cipro non credo che saremo mollati al nostro destino. C’è poi comunque un’Italia positiva fatta di aziende sane e nonostante tutto l’export italiano continua a crescere e raggiunge trimestre dopo trimestre nuovi record. Ci sono non solo grandi aziende ma anche piccole e medie che sanno reggere alla competizione globale e sono gestite bene”.


Fa però dei casi come la Grecia e Cipro dove i risparmiatori hanno partecipato al “salasso” con un hair cut pesante (ovvero un differimento del rimborso dei titoli di stato) nel caso dei bond greci e la partecipazione dei correntisti al salvataggio (i titolari di conti correnti a Cipro con più di 100.000 euro potranno perdere quasi il 50% di quanto depositato)?


“In effetti se l’Italia fosse un’azienda avrebbe senso una ristrutturazione del debito. Se si finanzia un debitore in modo sconsiderato, se le banche hanno dato troppi soldi in giro in modo cretino e tanta gente ha sottoscritto i Btp perché gli davano un rendimento del 5% senza rischio c’è evidentemente qualcosa che non va. E sarebbe anche giusto che qualcuno pagasse per avere troppo disinvoltamente sottovalutato il rischio. Ma detto tutto questo non credo che questo succederà e on crediamo che nè l’Italia nè l’euro stiano per collassare”.

watches By Silke Koltrowitz and Caroline Copley


all brand watches ZURICH (Reuters) - The world's biggest watchmaker, Swatch Group , said it expects faster sales growth and better margins in the second half as its Omega brand is growing again in China while demand for Harry Winston jewellery is buoyant.


swiss Mechanical movement replica watches In the first half of the year, there have been double-digit percentage falls in Swiss watch exports to China and Hong Kong, which absorbed a quarter of the timepieces that left Switzerland between January and June.


swiss replica watches "Omega has come back strongly in mainland China, it's not growing at a double-digit pace, but it's on a modest growth path again," Chief Executive Nick Hayek said on Tuesday.


copy watches He added that he saw single-digit growth in the second half for the group's high-end brands, including Omega, which analysts estimate accounts for about a third of group sales.


best replica watches Hong Kong, the biggest market for Swiss watches, where people from mainland China shop to avoid high taxes at home, never really collapsed for Swatch's brands, Hayek said.


"We've always had at least 5-7 percent growth there, also in the high end," he said in a telephone interview.


He confirmed that the group's strong mid-range brands, Longines and Tissot, as well as its colorful Swatch plastic watches should continue to grow in double-digits in the region.


Sales of costly watches in China have been hit by a government crackdown on gifts to officials and business leaders to facilitate transactions. France's Hermes said last week it had also been affected by this trend.


Gross sales at Swatch increased a slightly better-than-expected 8.7 percent to 4.181 billion francs ($4.47 billion) in the first half of the year, significantly less than the 14.4 percent growth seen in the year-ago period.


"The U.S. market is doing very well, the UK is improving and tourist shopping is supporting Italy," Hayek said. "France is giving us a bit of a headache, without the tourists, there would be hardly any consumption there."


He said the group might be able to achieve 9 billion Swiss francs in gross sales this year if the dollar rose a bit and if the group could build enough stock to satisfy high demand for jewellery made by the newly acquired Harry Winston brand.


It is currently Swatch Group's priority to put production back on track at Canadian jeweler Harry Winston, which it bought for almost $1 billion this year, Hayek said.


NECKLACES AND RINGS


"We need a lot of high-end products at Harry Winston so we can satisfy all these customers walking, for example, into our store on (New York's) 5th Avenue to buy necklaces and rings in the range of more than $10 million. So you can imagine that it is crucial that enough products are available in the store."


Hayek said stocks at the brand were quite low now but he wanted to increase them to about $800 million to ensure he had $30-40 million in stock at each of the brand's 23 stores.


Hayek said the group's operating margin could bounce back to 24-25 percent in the second half after dropping to 22.7 percent in the first, hit by high expenses for the Basel watch fair and investment into new products, such as its mechanical Swatch watch Sistem51 and an antimagnetic Omega.


"I gave the green light to spend an additional 40 million francs on marketing in June just to promote our new products at Swatch, Omega and Longines. ... I don't care if that hit our margin in the short term, it's the long term that counts."


Shares in Swatch were up 3.1 percent by 1132 GMT, outperforming a flat sector index , after falling some 12 percent from May's all-time high as markets were pricing in a forthcoming weak first half. Luxury goods group Richemont , which also hit a peak in May, has shed only 5 percent.


They trade at about 15.1 times forward earnings, according to Reuters data, at a discount to Richemont at 16.8 times and LVMH at 16.7 times.


Citi analyst Thomas Chauvet said the expectations for a rebound in demand and margins in the second half were already largely priced in and he expected consensus to come down.


Net profit was up 6.1 percent to 768 million francs, ahead of a 728 million estimate in a Reuters poll, with analysts citing a better-than-expected financial result and a lower tax rate.

all brand watches James Dannucci , a 43-year-old New Fairfield man, has daughters who are 8 and 7 years old. But even though they're now attending elementary school, he only recently paid off the debt he faced to place them in day care, back when they were still in diapers -- and he's now facing the challenge of looking into a retirement account filled with nothing but zeroes after he emptied it out to pay those bills.


high quality swiss replica watches When his first daughter, Mia, was born in 2005, Dannucci's wife took a year off from her job as a teacher in Danbury. After that, Mia went off to day care and her new little sister, Remy, who turned 7 on Wednesday, arrived soon thereafter. When Remy started attending day care with her older sister, the Dannuccis' bill nearly doubled -- their day care center gave them a 10 percent discount for having more than one child enrolled -- and "day care bills were pushing 13, 14, 15, 16 hundred a month," said Dannucci, who likened the cost to another mortgage payment.


swiss watches "I think I calculated it to a little over $50,000 over the five years that we were battling with the system," said Dannucci.


high quality replica watches for men "We finished that up and they're in school now," he said. "Believe it or not, we're looking into going into 2014 now, and just in the past year we have kind of dug ourselves out of the hole that that whole situation kind of threw us in," he said.


best swiss replica watches As he gets closer to the end of the tunnel, Dannucci said he is hoping to begin contributing to the children's 529 college plans again, after having to take a couple years off from the savings accounts to pay off the day care debt.


He said he never would have guessed that getting over the day care hurdle would be just as tough as he expects college to be in about a decade. But it was.


Parents all over Connecticut are feeling the crunch. The cost of placing one infant or toddler in a day care center in southwestern Connecticut has become so expensive that it actually exceeds the cost of a year's tuition to the University of Connecticut at Storrs.


Child Care Aware of America, which is the nation's leading voice in child care issues, reported in 2011 that the cost of sending one infant to a day care at a child care center was $12,844 in 2011, which is 39 percent higher than the $9,256 tuition charged at UConn for the upcoming 2013-2014 school year.


In southwestern Connecticut, the difference is even more significant, with an average cost of $311 a week, or $16,182 a year, according to Child Care Aware's senior policy adviser, Michelle McCready .


"Connecticut is one of the 35 states where the average cost for an infant in center-based care was higher than a year's tuition for public college," McCready said. "But you can't plan for an infant's care the way you plan for college. You don't put money aside in a 529 (fund) for years and years and years like you do for college."


Across the state, families are spending 15 percent of their incomes to place an infant in child care, according to 2-1-1 Child Care, a resource and referral service powered by the United Way of Connecticut. That's significantly higher than the 10 percent recommendation issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.


And that's just for one child; the cost of placing an infant and an older pre-school-aged child in a day care center tips the scale up to 27 percent, exceeding the median annual rent payment in the state, 2-1-1 Child Care reports.


While day care costs do vary significantly from town to town -- from $11,816 a year for an infant or toddler in Bridgeport to $14,747 in Bethel, and $11,310 in Naugatuck to $18,200 in New Canaan -- they are a problem for the whole state.


As a whole, Connecticut is ranked as the 23rd most expensive state in the nation for families placing an infant in a child care center. While Massachusetts tops the list at $14,980 a year, Connecticut comes in at $12,844. Mississippi is the most affordable in the nation, at $4,591 per year, according to Child Care Aware of America.


But the burden is perhaps biggest here, with southwestern Connecticut's average cost of more than $16,000 a year "exceeding that of any state in the nation," according to McCready.


"Stamford is a perfect example of a place with a very high cost, compared to the income of families," said Sherri Sutera , senior vice president for child care services at 2-1-1 Child Care.


"Stamford has an affluent area and a not-so-affluent area, and there are also a lot of center-based programs there that cater to people who work there in the corporations and professionals who can afford that," she said. "But if I am a parent who works in an entry-level job or in the service industry, that parent is certainly not going to be able to afford that center."


Sutera's organization reports that the average annual cost of placing an infant in a child care center in Stamford racks up to $18,727 a year, which is the equivalent of 20.8 percent of the median Stamford family's income. Tack on a second child between the ages of 3 and 5, and the price tag goes up by another $13,774 -- accounting for 36 percent of the average Stamford family's annual income.


But it's not just Stamford. In Dannucci's hometown of New Fairfield, a year's worth of child care in a center for an infant or toddler rings in at $14,300 on average -- or 12.8 percent of the typical Fairfield family's annual income -- according to Sutera's organization. For children a bit older -- no longer toddlers, but not yet in kindergarten -- the average price in New Fairfield is $11,960.


It's enough to push some families to seek alternate arrangements.


That's what Fairfield resident Giuliana Bolaños and her husband are grappling with. They're currently evaluating the price of employing a nanny or an au pair as they juggle the costs of their 19-month-old daughter Valentina with the expected uptick when their son is born in September. Currently, they pay about $1,300 to $1,400 a month for one child, tallying up to about 30 percent of their combined income annually, and 34-year-old Bolaños said adding a second child onto that total could make day care unsustainable for the young family.


"An au pair is actually cheaper than sending my kids to day care, but then they live in your house," she said, before rushing through a flood of numbers she's researched which show that the cost of an au pair would be a little more than $10,000 less than continuing to send Valentina and her soon-to-be-born brother to day care.


Of course, those potential savings won't come without some sacrifices.


"We don't have a big house, so we'd have to redo the basement on the cheap," she said.


So they're also considering hiring a nanny who would come to the house during the day and watch the children. But nannies aren't cheap, either.


"Nannies in Fairfield are $15 an hour, if not more, so that's a lot of money," Bolaños said. "It's hard. I'm like, `How do people do this?' "


McCready, from Child Care Aware of America, calls it a "child care crisis." But while it may take some new parents by surprise, it isn't exactly sneaking up on the nation; the costs have been trending upward for a quarter-century.


"The payments people are making for child care has almost doubled, between 1985 and 2011," said Lynda Laughlin , author of an April report by the U.S. Census Bureau that explored the cost of child care.


Back in 1985, families with employed mothers spent $84 a week on child care in 2011 dollars; by 2011, the price was up to $143 according to Laughlin's paper.


"I don't think it was that bad when I was a kid," Dannucci said. "I just don't remember it being that difficult when I was a kid."

Ashbrook student wins statewide essay contest By JAMES DAY, Corvallis Gazette-Times

August 23, 2013 5:30 am  •  By JAMES DAY, Corvallis Gazette-Times (0) Comments

Ashbrook Independent School student Kathleen Breitling won a statewide essay contest which rewarded her with a laptop computer as its prize.

Breitling won the “If I Were Mayor” essay contest, which was sponsored by the League of Oregon Cities.

Breitling previously had won the Corvallis contest and a gift card in May. That victory advanced her to the state competition.

The prize was intended to be awarded to Breitling at last month’s Oregon Mayor’s Association Summer Conference at the CH2M Hill Alumni Center in Corvallis, but she was away from town on vacation.

Breitling read her essay, titled “Renewal and Transformation of a Community” at Monday’s Corvallis City Council meeting and received her prize from Mayor Julie Manning.

Breitling’s essay recommended a wide range of civic improvements and projects, including arts and culture, urban green space, bicycle and pedestrian paths and ballroom dancing.

“As you can see I have my work cut out for me,”  Manning said, after hearing Breitling’s extensive plans for the city.

2013 brings us the summer of Pharrell

moncler Last week I was on the Business Insider website (Let’s pause for a minute.  Was I on that site because I’ve been in the business world for several decades and like to stay SUPER on top of the news?  NO! They had an article linking to one of my blog posts! I’ve finally made it big in my unpaid job!) and saw an article that pondered whether Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” or Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” would be the song of the summer (spoiler alert: it’s “Blurred Lines”).


buy moncler What the article didn’t mention was that there was that both songs had something in common.  Can you use the title of this blog to figure out what that was?  Good, they both include Pharrell Williams.  He is featured both in the vocals and in the videos for both songs.  He also wrote and performed several adorably upbeat songs for the “Despicable Me 2” soundtrack.  He’s everywhere!


moncler jackets But who is 40-year old with the strange name?  Why is he everywhere all of a sudden?  It turns out he’s been around more than it seems for quite some time (he’s won four Grammys, for instance), but maybe you just didn’t know where to look for him.  He’s actually made his mark in many areas, including producing, designing clothes, writing books and generally saving the world.  Let’s break those down.


moncler sale Producing : Pharrell and his childhood friend formed a production company called The Neptunes.  They have produced for such notables as Britney Spears, Nelly, and Jay-Z.  On his own, Pharrell has produced for Justin Timberlake, Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé.  I’ve heard of a few of them.


moncler sale Designer : Pharrell has put a lot of energy into his clothing lines (plural), Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream.  I looked at the website and honestly it just looks like regular clothes to me, but I’m wearing yoga pants and a t-shirt right now.  I found this description on Karma Loop : “Billionaire Boys Club specialized in high-end fashion produced in limited quantities. Outside of Japan, Billionaire Boys Club continues to be retailed exclusively, ensuring that its unique designs stay fresh. Billionaire Boys Club's classic streetwear has become a favorite among hip hop artists and fashionistas, and contains both hip hop influences and elements of the bright styling and bold graphic design more commonly found in Japanese fashion.”  Has he secretly been using me for inspiration?


outlet moncler Author : Released almost a year ago, “Pharrell: Place and Spaces I’ve Been” has this (partial) description on Amazon: “This unprecedented volume documents Pharrell’s prolific body of work and his contribution to contemporary culture. In his own unique graphic language, he details his extensive creative pursuits, including clothing lines, jewelry, and accessories designs for Louis Vuitton, furniture and other product design, limited-edition toys, graphic designs, skate graphics, and collaborations with Moncler, Marc Jacobs, the artist KAWS, and with architects Zaha Hadid and Masamichi Katayama/Wonderwall.”  I don’t know who most of those people are, and unless I want to spend $39.95 (plus shipping), I’ll have to see if it’s available at my local suburban library to find out.


Philanthropist : Pharrell spearheaded the building of a $35 million after school center for the youngsters of his hometown of Virginia Beach, Virginia.  Regarding the modern architecture, Pharrell noted, “We want the building to look like something out of the future, so it will inspire the kids in it to aspire to greater things.”  I would totally do my homework there.


Mate : Pharrell is engaged to a model/designer (naturally) and they have a five-year old son, Rocket Man Williams (my husband and I were *this* close to naming our song Rocket Man but went with Jack instead – #awkwardmusicproblems).


Well, there you have it.  Apparently Pharrell is just about the most perfect man in the world, and this summer the world has a chance to see that via his high profile work.

The hallways are all but empty as Ball goes to his locker at North High School Wednesday morning.

EVANSVILLE —
Raegan Ball, 17, admitted he isn’t sure that he ever gets enough sleep.
Between juggling his school day, play and musical practices, a job and homework, the North High School senior said some days he is more tired than others, but he’s always kind of sleepy.
“No matter how long I sleep, I feel like I never catch up,” he said.
Research and common sense prove many teens struggle to roll out of bed around 6 a.m. to get on the bus or arrive at school on time. That was a recent message from U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, who said it would benefit teenagers to start school at a later time so they are better prepared to learn and concentrate. Confessing he isn’t afraid to sometimes hit the snooze button, Ball estimates he goes to sleep around 11 p.m. or midnight, often later during strenuous play and musical rehearsals, and receives on average five or six hours of rest. Ball wakes up around 6 a.m. and aims to be at school between 6:50 and 7 a.m. When staying at his dad’s house, Ball leaves around 6:15 a.m. to get to school on time. He doesn’t usually drink caffeine in the morning, instead powering up with something like yogurt or Pop Tarts.
“I can usually wake up enough by the time I’m in class to understand what is going on,” he said. “And if it’s a subject that I really do need to work on, that I know I am having trouble in, then I’ll make sure and be completely aware of what’s going on so I can understand what they’re talking about and learn as much as possible.”
Students riding the bus to North are dropped off about 7 a.m., when they quickly fill the food court/commons area before the bell rings at 7:35 a.m. signaling the start of the day.
Teenagers require between 8.5 and 9.25 hours of sleep, said Dr. John Rodrigues, medical director of St. Mary’s sleep disorder center, but the problem with teenage sleep is their onset doesn’t naturally occur until around 11 p.m. Rodrigues said many studies have been conducted in countries to try to define the reason, and some say it could be cultural pressures that cause teens to stay awake later.
However, Rodrigues said the melatonin biologically secreted before a person falls asleep happens later in teenagers, which explains the times they tend to fall asleep. If a high schooler falls asleep at 11 p.m., ideally he would not wake until 8 a.m., he said.
“That’s not in sync because we are demanding that our kids wake up earlier in the morning to get to school, and then they end up being sleepy during the first couple classes and then they end up having problems,” he said. “The logistics of doing it make it difficult, but I don’t think it’s impossible. There’s enough research saying this should be done, it’s just getting it done that becomes a problem.”
Rodrigues compared teenagers “catching up” on sleep during the weekends to starving your body of nutrients during the week and then gorging on food over the weekend.
“My kids have grown up, but I clearly remember on weekends how late they would be sleeping,” he said. “And my wife would say, ‘Is this something that we should be allowing them to do?’ And the thing is that sleeping late on weekends is not a symptom of laziness, it’s a symptom of the fact that the kids are not getting enough sleep during the week so they are trying to catch up on weekends. Which is something that the body will naturally make you do, but it is certainly not ideal.”
When the Minneapolis Public School District pushed start times in seven high schools back from 7:15 a.m. to 8:40 a.m., researchers at the University of Minnesota found students gained about an hour of sleep a day. They also found an increase in attendance and alertness.
Rehearsals for North’s fall play currently consume much of Ball’s evenings. When he’s not rehearsing or doing activities for choir, he works at Mike’s Car Wash at least 15 hours a week, sometimes 25. During a typical week, Ball said he spends about 10-15 hours on extra curricular activities, works part time and has to stay on top of finishing homework.
In the weeks leading up to performance nights, Ball said he won’t get home from rehearsal until 11 p.m., then he completes homework so he can get to sleep as soon as possible. Ball’s stepmom, Tiffany Ball, said that during the super busy months sometimes he doesn’t get to bed until 1:30 a.m.
As a way to juggle life, Ball makes it a point to plan out his free time so he knows exactly what he should finish and when. Preferring to start his day with classes like Chemistry II or science, Ball said once a week his chemistry class will have an early morning lab that starts at 6:45 a.m. If there comes a day that Ball isn’t completely awake for a class, he said he will get extra help so he doesn’t fall behind or get confused.
IMPACTS
Many factors play a part in the school day in what some may consider a simple time change, including extracurricular activities, money and travel time especially when local school districts are in a different time zone, just to name a few.
Evansville Vanderburgh School Corp. Superintendent David Smith said discussions around school start times have occurred, but both operational and academic perspectives are a factor. He noted many concerns, including teenagers that care for younger siblings after school — so if high school starts and ends later, who could care for those children while parents are still at work?
“Thoughtful decision making means that a school district would need to investigate and work to mitigate any unintended consequences and to make sure that research that has been done, is what it seems,” Smith said.
Smith said things like the number of miles driven per bus route, the cost of transportation per student, bus fleet and driver pool sizes need to be investigated. While bus schedules should not determine the school day, Smith said “the reality is that the state of Indiana is decreasing significantly the funding level for bus transportation, causing districts to have to pay strict attention to the routing of buses and the pairing of bus schedules to operate as efficiently as possible.”
Being a father to a middle and high school student, as well as serving as North’s principal, John Skinner can understand both sides of the issue. He said a long time ago North considered changing their start and end times.
“I’m more of a late riser, but I also like getting the day done ... you start early, but you get out early,” Skinner said.
As a dad, Skinner said he thinks school start times are “awful early for kids” because they often have activities and jobs after school causing them to get home late and still have homework to finish. And in the wintertime, students depart for school when it’s still dark outside.
However, playing his principal role, Skinner said that to get the school hours in and to have time to also offer extracurricular activities, there’s not much that can be changed about school start times. Skinner noted concerns like the cost of bus transportation because a certain fleet of buses is shared between elementary, middle and high schools; many buses even have to run multiple routes.
For after-school athletics, Skinner said officials are “running on daylight” and referenced his girl’s golf team that recently left school about 15 minutes early and traveled to Vincennes to get a 9-hole round in before dark. If school ended later, Skinner said teams would need to leave school even earlier and may miss an entire class.
Although he doesn’t dispute research,
Warrick County School Corp. Superintendent
Brad Schneider said it’s a bit of a Catch-22 because later end times mean students get home later and will either have to stay up late or rise earlier to complete homework. Noting their primary responsibility is to educate students, Schneider is a big proponent of the lessons learned through extracurricular functions — being part of a team, preparing to do your best, practicing and working to accomplish both individual and team goals — that produce well-rounded young adults.
Schneider would be cautious to change school start times in efforts to prevent the reduction of extracurriculars. A needed lesson for students that applies to everything in life is to know their schedule and do whatever possible to abide by that, he said.
“A lot of what we do is habit,” he said. “So you have to teach your body to go to bed at a decent hour, to get the proper rest. If school starts early, you’ve conditioned your mind and body to perform at a high level and I think that to some extent can be true of middle and high school kids. There’s some responsibility the individual has to take for getting proper rest and getting to bed at a respectful hour so they can get the appropriate sleep.”
Metropolitan School District of Mount Vernon Superintendent
Tom Kopatich said he believes mimicking typical work hours, like 8 to 5, is valid for school because it prepares students for the workforce. Kopatich said athletics in his district are switching to having more games during the weekend instead of the week, and noted his boys basketball teams now have few games on Tuesday nights.
“I think we need to prepare them for what they’re going to be doing after high school, if they join the workforce right away or college,” he said.
OPINIONS
The EVSC uses professional development and initiatives like Response to Intervention, which provide different techniques for every student to help them learn in their own way, to improve student success.
Despite having a nontraditional learning environment, EVSC Virtual Academy director Janet Leistner said she still encourages her students to get up early, no later than 8 or 8:30 a.m., to start working on their lessons. Leistner said it’s important because if students sleep later and don’t log onto the network to complete work, distractions come along throughout the day preventing them from doing so.
The Virtual Academy, available to K-12 students, was launched in June 2010 as a supplemental program to allow students to earn credits and a diploma through online courses led by licensed EVSC teachers using content from Apex Learning Inc.
“While the start time might be somewhat later, we really do encourage our kids to have a regular school schedule when they are a home school student. ... Life is where we have to get up and get on a schedule, so while we let them design it, we want them to have a regular school day setting.”
Skinner said many supporters will claim those students who are habitually tardy for school will arrive on time if the day starts later.
He disagrees.
“If we have a two-hour delay or late start, those typically late people are still late,” Skinner said. “And we have people everywhere in the world that way.”
Ball said he’s taken time to really consider school start times and the benefits or setbacks that come along with it. He has friends and family in Michigan that go to school from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and he said by the time they get home around 5 p.m. or later, they barely have time to do much outside of homework.
“I really like our start times where they are now. ... Yes, it’s kind of hard getting up in the morning sometimes, and it’s harder for some, but I personally am fine with it. It is kind of a trouble sometimes when it’s around the time of the musical, but it’s well worth it.”
Schneider said he doesn’t know anyone who wouldn’t prefer to lie in bed longer until they felt like waking up. However, the current school schedules in place work, so why change it?
“If something was going to change, that needs to be something that as an area we determine is important to do,” he said. “Because if just a few schools change their start times, that’s going to have impacts on everyone else. I don’t know if it would be worth all of that.”

tiffany and co Leave it to the Academic Airheads to mess things up. If you go to Academic Airhead Capitol of Indiana (Bloomington), you will find start times really screwed up. A couple of days a week the students will start at 8:15 the other days they might start at 7:45. A typical family of 4 kids may be picked up by 3 different buses in front of their house. It is terrible for a working family to comply with the Academic Airhead Mentality.

If only it could be that easy. From the time they enter high school, students are told that in order to be competitive for acceptance into a good/great college, their applications should be as well rounded as possible. Not only must they have above average grades, their applications should reflect a long and varied list of their involvement in extra curricular activities, volunteer projects and community activism. A lot of these kids come from situations where a scholarship is their only hope of going on to college, so they have to stand out. That means sacrificing sleep for the sake of a dream. Granted not all high school students lack sleep for the sake of college aspirations; some are just up playing video games all night. Those kind are just making poor choices.

Get to bed at a decent time above all else. You can't function well without getting enough sleep.

The problem with this view is that one cannot "train" the body's physiology; there is a biologic basis for the internal clock of adolescents to be different from an adult's body. It can't be forced.

Pushing start times back will only make the kids go to bed later. They will still have the same amount of work to do but will have an hour less at the end of the day. You just have to learn to balance things. I often hear people complain about how much their kids have to do and that there isn't enough time to do it. Yet half of their activities are optional. Point being that most kids need to narrow down their extra curriculars.

Ask students what they do when a two hour delay has been declared; they stay up later. As Skinner stated, the ones who are typically late on a regular start time day are also late on a two hour delay day, even though they've had extra time to get up, get their cars cleared off, and get to school at a leisurely pace.


If a student's so overscheduled that he doesn't have enough hours in the day to do everything, then the parent should step in and help cull the hours.

I don't see why school needs to start so early, but I also don't think that's the whole issue.


The public school system has bowed down and made changes that are not conducive to learning, like more administrative time and days off, a school calendar that starts in the middle of August and ends early May, eliminated physical fitness classes, etc...

Tiffany Profit Tops Estimates Amid Tepid Sales in Americas

Tiffany Profit Grows on Lower Costs, Higher Prices

tiffany Tiffany & Co., (TIF) the world’s second-largest luxury jewelry retailer, reported second-quarter profit that topped analysts’ estimates as price increases and declining product costs helped counter tepid sales in the Americas.

wholesale tiffany jewelry Net income in the quarter ended July 31 rose 16 percent to $106.8 million, or 83 cents a share, from $91.8 million, or 72 cents, a year earlier, the New York-based company said today in a statement. Analysts projected 74 cents, the average of 22 estimates compiled by Bloomberg.

tiffany jewelry A drop in costs for precious materials helped boost profit, as did Tiffany’s decision to raise prices after holding them steady last year. While wealthier customers happily paid up for the pricier baubles, less well-heeled shoppers balked, and sales in the Americas fell short of estimates. Tiffany’s mid-priced fashion jewelry also faced increasing competition from such designer jewelers as David Yurman and Ippolita.

wholesale tiffany jewelry “It’s lower silver costs they are benefiting from,” Brian Yarbrough, an analyst with Edward Jones & Co. in St. Louis , said in a telephone interview today. The sales deceleration was “concerning,” he said.

tiffany outlet online Gross margin, or earnings left after subtracting the cost of goods, widened to 57.5 percent of sales compared with 56.3 percent a year earlier.

tiffany outlet store The shares fell 1 percent to $80.82 at the close in New York . The stock has gained 41 percent this year, compared with a 14 percent increase for the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index.

Sales Miss

Tiffany joined retailers from No. 1 discounter Wal-Mart Stores Inc. to luxury chains such as Nordstrom Inc. (JWN) in posting sales that missed estimates. Consumers have switched their spending from personal discretionary goods like apparel, handbags and jewelry to replacing old cars and home-related merchandise as the housing market rebounds.

Revenue advanced 4.4 percent to $925.9 million at Tiffany. Analysts projected $942.4 million.

Sales at stores open longer than 12 months in the Americas were unchanged, after a 3 percent increase in the first quarter.

“That is pretty weak, that deceleration from the first quarter,” said Yarbrough, who recommends holding the shares.

While sales rose in dollar terms in the Americas after it increased prices and the highest-priced jewelry sold well, Tiffany saw declines in unit sales in the region, particularly in moderately priced fashion jewelry, Mark Aaron, a company spokesman, said on a conference call with analysts.

Amid increased competition from Yurman and Ippolita, Tiffany said it expects fashion jewelry to lag its other categories for the rest of the year even though it is adding new products, including a redesigned Atlas collection.

The company raised its annual profit forecast to a range of $3.50 to $3.60 a share, excluding some items, from $3.43 to $3.53. Analysts estimated $3.53, on average.

Cie. Financiere Richemont SA is the world’s largest luxury jewelry maker.

Counterfeit bags are big business for Dubai traders
Sunday, September 01, 2013
7DAYS
Follow
Business is brisk in the shady alleys of certain Dubai districts, where shop workers sell counterfeit wares to tourists and residents in search of a designer knock-off.

lv An invitation to view ‘genuine fakes’ - copies of luxury goods - is difficult to dodge, despite the real thing being readily available in the emirate’s upmarket malls. Tourists are targeted in Dubai’s Gold Souk, while residents and visitors in the know are more likely to go to Karama for cheap knock-offs. In both areas, hidden behind and above the regular shops are stores packed full of bags, belts, sunglasses, T-shirts, watches, shoes and even fake fragrances.


cheap louis vuitton bags Yet buyers are often unaware that their prized designer copy is funding terrorism and organised crime around the world. A tourist who had just stepped off a cruise liner to spend two days in Dubai told 7DAYS: “My wife and I avoid fakes, because we know the money goes to hardcore gangsters.



Shoppers browsing the Gold Souk are often approached by touts selling counterfeit versions of designer bags

Shoppers browsing the Gold Souk are often approached by touts selling counterfeit versions of designer bags

The real version of this Hermes Kelly bag (left) sells for Dhs830. In the Gold Souk, the far inferior copy (right) will cost between Dhs150 and Dhs400.

An authentic Michael Kors Saffiano tote bag (left) costs Dhs1,100. The Dubai copy (right) is Dhs250 - though the lettering is not affixed to the bag properly.




louis vuitton outlet “We went for a look at some of the shops around Dubai Museum. We couldn’t believe it when one shopkeeper on a main street asked if we wanted ‘special’ T-shirts. He opened a lid in his counter to reveal hundreds of designer rip-offs. Dubai is famous for its designer stores, so we were surprised to realise there’s such a huge market in counterfeits.”


replica louis vuitton handbags A visit to the Gold Souk one weekend confirmed that illegal business is brisk. Within five minutes of arriving, we were approached by six street touts aggressively demanding we look at their “bags, watches, T-shirts, shoes… Prada, Gucci, Chanel, Hermes”. We were taken down an alleyway by a tout, who led us to his boss, Sanjay, two floors up in a building. Like most ‘fake’ shops, Sanjay’s domain consisted of old apartments converted into an Aladdin’s cave of copied luxury goods.


cheap louis vuitton belts Sanjay, who rules over the main sales area, explained: “All these bags are between Dhs150 and Dhs400. There is another room, with the newest releases, next door. In there you pay between Dhs800 and Dhs1,200.” Asked which bags were most popular, Sanjay said: “Helly Hansen, Gucci and Michael Kors are popular. The British ladies go for Burberry, Louis Vuitton or Mulberry. Customers want Rolex watches, the automatic ones - they are better quality. Other nationalities go for different brands. The Arabic ladies usually shop next door because they want the latest releases.”


louis vuitton outlet online Sanjay then tried to sell a plastic wallet branded Yves Saint Laurent. He started the bidding at Dhs200 - the lowest he would go was Dhs70. The real thing is made of high-quality leather. Next was the shoes department. There, a pair of men’s suede Lacoste shoes, which cost Dhs750 for the real thing, were offered for Dhs600.


The danger of being caught by the authorities did not seem to trouble Sanjay and his friends. He shrugged: “I do not think that will happen here.” He laughed when asked why.


The latest figures for counterfeiting show that an estimated seven per cent of trade across the globe involves cheap, illegal copies of high-end goods. They are illegal because they are passed off as coming from a company that has built a reputation for quality, design and safety.


The business has grown so large, however, that in China - the counterfeit capital of the world - whole cars are being copied, with Porsche and Ferrari the victims.


Fake computer components are also big business, with space agency NASA reportedly being duped into buying some. Tobacco and alcohol companies even fall foul of the gangs - one seizure of cigarettes in the UK unearthed products containing human waste and dangerous chemicals. Factories that manufacture counterfeit goods are usually located in developing countries. They are so prominent in Thailand that there’s a Museum of Counterfeit Goods in Bangkok.


The Counterfeiting Intelligence Bureau, formed in 1985 and based in London, has undertaken more than 600 investigations in 35 countries. Its assistant director, Max Vetter, told 7DAYS: “There are examples of terrorists using counterfeiting to finance their activities. Counterfeiting always involves organised criminals and corruption.


“Dubai is a big trade route, with goods coming from China and being sent on to Europe. This status makes it susceptible to counterfeiting. In fact, in 2008 the Global Congress on Combating Counterfeiting and Piracy was held in Dubai because there is so much activity there.”


As well as funding criminal activity, many fakes can be dangerous for consumers. Vetter said: “We come across a lot of pharmaceutical and electrical goods. Apple has just launched an investigation into counterfeit telephone chargers after a lady died in China using one.”


Dubai Police put out a message on social media recently, warning that fake goods endanger society and the economy. It advised consumers to report counterfeiters by calling 04 203 6341.

Michigan Beats Notre Dame, Plays 'Chicken Dance' Song

all brand watches Last night's college football game between the University of Michigan and Notre Dame was the final match-up between the longtime rivals to be played in Ann Arbor for a while, thanks to a looming suspension of their rivalry that was enacted by Notre Dame.

swiss watches Michigan won, 41-30, after stifling a late comeback. The two teams will meet again in Notre Dame's South Bend home in 2014 — but Saturday night's game is being hailed as a showcase of a classic rivalry, with several dramatic turnabouts and unpredictable moments.

cheap watches An NCAA record 115,109 people were at Michigan Stadium to watch the game — and many also heard Michigan's public address system blare "The Chicken Dance" song. As USA Today reports, it was played in apparent reference to Michigan coach Brady Hoke saying Notre Dame was "chickening out of" the rivalry earlier this year.

cheap watches During post-game interviews, you could just hear the song in the background :


YouTube

swiss watches As SB Nation reports , the game was memorable for several reasons, even before the magical sounds of polka filled the Big House:

"We also got a new American football attendance record , a phenomenal FAT GUY TOUCHDOWN , a 'TIMEOUT wait never mind whatever' moment and Eminem in the booth during halftime . Yeah. Eminem. What a game."

And that rundown omits the fact that actor Mark Harmon was also at the game. Harmon's father, Tom, was Michigan's first Heisman Trophy winner; on Saturday night, Wolverines quarterback Devin Gardner wore a jersey bearing Harmon's number 98, which had been retired.

The reasons behind Notre Dame's decision to halt the rivalry — and why it can put the games on hold — are complicated. As Pete Thamel writes for Sports Illustrated , the school says it wants to increase its exposure in games with teams in Texas, and in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Notre Dame may resume playing Michigan around 2020. But Thamel adds that the two schools put on a great show in one of their final games — for now, at least.

For a historic perspective of "The Chicken Dance," we refer you to The Lawrence Welk Show , which deciphered its complex symbology:

nike (Reuters) - Nike Inc enjoyed big sales in gains in North America and Europe last quarter and benefited from fewer markdowns, helping the maker of sports clothes and shoes report a stronger-than-expected quarterly profit.


nike outlet Total revenue rose 7.7 percent to $6.97 billion, and global orders for delivery later this year, which the company calls "futures orders," rose 10 percent excluding currency impact, suggesting Nike's hot streak will continue.


nike shoes outlet stores Nike shares rose 5.7 percent to $74.35 in after-hours trading. Including those gains, shares are up 13.7 percent since the announcement earlier this month that Nike would join the Dow Jones industrial average.


football boots Nike revenue in North America rose 9 percent, and in Western Europe, where many retailers have struggled with a pullback by consumers, sales grew 8 percent.


nike shoes outlet stores The company earned $780 million, or 86 cents a share, in its fiscal first quarter, ended August 31, compared with $567 million, or 63 cents a share, last year. Analysts expected a profit of 78 cents per share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.


nike shoes outlet stores Nike's gross margin rose 1.2 points to 44.9 percent of sales, helped by lower cotton costs and fewer markdowns. The company had forecast gross margin to be unchanged.


Futures orders for delivery between this month and January 2014 rose 12 percent in both Europe and North America.


In China, where Nike is grappling with excess inventory and intense competition from price-cutting rivals, sales fell 3 percent, but futures orders rose 2 percent.

Top 10 Celebrity Costumes
By Sara Porch , 10/3/2013

ugg The air is crisp, the leaves are starting to turn, and pumpkins line the entrance to every grocery store. Fall is finally and here, and that means Halloween is quickly approaching. With less than a month left until the spooky day, it’s time to start thinking about your costume!


cheap uggs This year, don’t settle for a mundane costume idea. Retire the white sheet you used to be a ghost. Resist the urge to turn a respectable profession like a nurse or librarian into a “sluty” getup. With the abundance of major pop culture moments this year, why not get inspired by the celebrities you love so much? From twerk-filled VMA performances to the birth of a new king, 2013 has no shortage of celebrity moments that you can easily imitate in your Halloween costume this year. Whether you’re dressing just yourself, your family, or a group of friends, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a list of the top ten celebrity costumes. 


uggs clearance 10. Prince William, Princess Kate, and Prince George
This costume is really a family affair, but people with kids need to dress up for Halloween too. For Will, all you need is a man in a suit or button down shirt. For Kate, find a fascinator or a tiara and throw on a classy dress. If you’re really going for authenticity, you can match the blue polka dot dress she wore after leaving the hospital. Finally just wrap your George up in a white blanket, bonus points if you find a tiny baby crown or scepter, and off you go.

discount uggs 9. North West
I couldn’t mention the British royal family without including the American one. A Kanye, Kim, and North West entourage is unnecessary. All you need is baby North. To achieve this costume, you need a large piece of cardboard, markers, string, and scissors. Make a compass with the cardboard and markers, but instead of it pointing north, have it point northwest. You’re clever and topical. 


kids ugg boots
Image: Image.net


8. Bill Nye the Science Guy
No, the beloved scientist from your childhood didn’t win Dancing with the Stars , but he did win a spot on our list. Dressing up as Bill is easy. Find a pair of khaki pants, a white button down, a blue lab coat, a bow tie, and, of course, an inexhaustible enthusiasm for science. Okay, you don’t need the last one, but it would help. 



7. Katniss
While you’re waiting for Catching Fire to hit theaters in November, dress up as Katniss in October. You can wear Katniss’ hunting jumpsuit from Catching Fire or stick with her jacket from the first film. Whichever you pick, make sure your hair is braided, and you’re wearing a mocking jay pin . 



Image: Lionsgate


6. Girls
If you want to dress up with a group of friends, look no further than HBO’s Girls . You can wear a baby doll dress for Hannah, a perfectly tailored pencil skirt for Marnie, a bohemian maxi for Jessa, or a trendy dress with a giant bow for Shoshanna. If you need more inspiration, take a look at SNL’s spot on parody. 



5. Amanda Bynes
It’s time to find that ratty blonde wig from last Halloween and use it for your Amanda Bynes costume this year. Besides a tangled mop of hair, wear some UGGs, sweatpants, and most importantly a Drake t-shirt. 



Image: Twitpic


4. Katy Perry from the “Roar” video
The pop star’s infamous blue wig is dead. If you want to go out as the pop princess, you need to ditch the spinning candy bra and unleash your inner roar. Perry’s look in the music video for her hit single “Roar” is easy to copy. All you need is a cheetah crop top, a grass skirt, and a flower head lei. It’s basically a hula girl with a little edge. 



3. Daft Punk
“Get Lucky” was one of the biggest songs of the summer, why not carry it into fall? You’ll need  some sort of dark shiny helmet. A motorcycle helmet or a Power Rangers helmet from when you were younger will do. From the neck down, stick with an all black suit and tie. 



Image: Amazon


2. Breaking Bad
To cope with the end of your favorite show, why not dress up as one of the characters? Get a yellow coverall , a costume gas mask , and rubber gloves. Shaving your head to match Walt’s is recommended but not required. 



Image: AMC


1. Miley Cyrus at the VMAs
It was the performance that sparked a thousand tweets, and you must recreate it as your Halloween costume. To achieve this costume goldmine, you need Miley’s infamous foam finger , a twerk bear shirt , two tiny hair buns, and some insane dance moves. After that, we can’t stop you.

Smartwatches don't make the grade for luxury brands

watches By Silke Koltrowitz


omega watches ZURICH (Reuters) - Don't expect your $10,000 wristwatch to be surfing the Web or calling your broker any time soon.


cheap watches High-end Swiss watchmakers seem agreed that their concept of timeless luxury does not sit well with the "gadget" appeal of smartwatches.


omega watches "A smartwatch is programmed to become obsolete," Jean-Claude Biver, chairman of luxury watchmaker Hublot, told Reuters.


omega watches "How could I mix Hublot with something made for obsolescence? It's impossible," said Biver, who added he had rebuffed a big technology group which wanted to explore future projects.


watches sale Technology firms like Sony, Samsung and Qualcomm have already launched smartwatches which can replicate smartphones in making calls, accessing the web and running apps.


Technology heavyweights Apple Inc and Google Inc have also shown tentative signs of interest in developing the devices, with Apple launching an iWatch trademark in Japan this year.


Smartwatch shipments are expected to reach 36 million by 2018, compared with just 1 million this year, according to Juniper Research, and Credit Suisse analysts see the market for wearable technology, including smartwatches, interactive glasses and monitors, growing to over $42 billion in the next three to five years.


But luxury watchmakers, whose time pieces sell for anything from 3,000 to 50,000 Swiss francs ($3,500 to $55,000) and often much more, are lukewarm about launching crossover products which could dilute their brand appeal.


"I'm not discounting it," said Johann Rupert, controlling shareholder of luxury goods group Richemont.


"But I don't think it's going to have a big impact on classical watches. Especially for men, it's the only jewelry they can wear."


UPHILL BATTLE


Analysts said smartwatches face an uphill battle to become mainstream devices and point to the fact that many can only be used as an accessory in conjunction with a smartphone.


"We do not believe smartwatches will become a substitute to luxury watches and early models do not appear to have breakthrough innovations," Citi analysts said in a note.


They estimate the market for smartwatches at about $6 billion out of a total of $60 billion for all watches.


LVMH's biggest watch brand, TAG Heuer, said this week it had created a one-off smartwatch for members of the Oracle sailing team that won the America's Cup on Wednesday.


But the brand's diversification and innovation director Thomas Houlon told Reuters TAG Heuer did not see a business case for making gadgets. "What makes Swiss watches so exciting is that they're mechanical."


Industry experts say Swatch Group, with its entry-price Swatch and Tissot brands that are roughly in the same price category as $300 smartwatches, might be interested in entering the smartwatch market.


"I'm sure Nick Hayek has something up his sleeve, no pun intended," Rupert said.


Asked for comment, Swatch CEO Nick Hayek said in an emailed statement his company had worked on interactive watches for years and already was the No.1 in touch technology for watches.


In a magazine interview in May, he said Swatch Group was helping Apple to master challenges for the iWatch, such as reducing power consumption and making curved touch screens, but also stressed he saw the future of Swiss watchmaking in mechanical watches rather than in smartwatches.


Citi analysts said they believed Swatch was keeping a close eye on smartwatch developments and could react promptly given its previous successes in the field. "Technology has always been an intrinsic part of Swatch Group's lower priced brands."


SHARED BENEFITS


Biver said the tech firm that contacted Hublot wanted to benefit from its knowhow and distribution network.


"We have received offers and we sat down a few times with one of the two big tech groups...but we declined," he said in a telephone interview on Thursday.


"They came to us because we are a watch brand for young people."


Hublot, known for its porthole-shaped watches with rubber straps, has just signed a partnership deal with the Paris Saint-Germain soccer team as it seeks to reach tomorrow's customers via a sport not commonly sponsored by luxury watch brands.


Biver said the rise of smartwatches might actually help makers of luxury watches.


"If young people get used to read information on their wrists instead of only on their phone, that will prepare them to one day also wear a watch."


Citi analysts said "new wearable technology should positively introduce 'arm candy' to a younger demographic and can ultimately increase adoption of fashion watches". ($1 = 0.9111 Swiss francs)

moncler outlet online Out of these 45 IPOs, four were withdrawn and four others were of large size with applications received from more than two lakh investors.

Several measures such as minimum allotment to retail investors, electronic bidding for IPO shares, extending the reach of ASBA (Application Supported by Blocked Amount), were implemented by Sebi in 2012-13 to revive the subdued primary market and boost the investor confidence.

The analysis of all these 45 issues found that the average number of retail investors applying for shares rose to 1,16,907 per issue in the post-reform period (October 1, 2012 - March 31, 2013), from an average of 37,626 in the pre-reform period (April 1, 2011 - September 30, 2012).

After excluding the withdrawn IPOs and large issues, the analysis of remaining 37 issues showed that the average number of retail investors per issue rose from 6,486 to 64,595. The average subscription by retail investors also rose from Rs 70.70 crore to Rs 190.3 crore in this category.

The analysis of the four large IPOs showed that the average number of retail investors in these issues rose from 2.58 lakh to 3.26 lakh per issue.

Among various reforms, Sebi has introduced an e-IPO mechanism through which investments can be done online without signing any physical documents. This has helped fast-track the public offer processing time.

On account of streamlining of process and other external factors, the average

cheap watches A copy of an alleged rider from one of Beyonce's video shoots might leave some divided on whether the superstar's requests are diva-minded or simply darling.


replica watch InTouch magazine claims to have obtained a copy of the rider from one of Beyonce's recent shoots that lists the things she wants in her dressing room during production.


omega Along with good lighting, lots of space and a room temperature of 72 degrees, the songstress reportedly asks that all designated rooms be "babyproofed," presumably so that little Blue Ivy can accompany her safely. (Aww!)


cheap watches The list also requests grapefruit-scented candles (preferably Jo Malone ), white furniture, two bars of Irish spring soap and a blender. In addition, there's a "no-camera policy" on set.


omega Either Beyonce is very particular about her settings, or she just wants to make sure things are safe and citrus-y for her and her baby girl.


This isn't the first time demands made by the "Run the World (Girls)" singer have made headlines. In May, a supposed copy of the tour rider from her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour was obtained by the United Kingdom's Daily Star. The list included requests for hand-carved ice balls to cool her throat and red toilet paper in the bathrooms.


Before the Super Bowl Halftime Show earlier this year, the gossip mill churned out claims that Beyonce was demanding ridiculous things like a $1 million nursery for Blue Ivy and $600,000 worth of cigars for Jay Z. The NFL eventually quashed those claims.


Whether or not the most recent rider is legitimate is left up for debate. However, it does closely resemble a rider from 2004 , when Beyonce sang the National Anthem at the Super Bowl at Houston's Reliant Stadium. Back then, she asked for a room temperature of 78 degrees, rose-scented candles and juicy baked chicken.

Roberto Cavalli

moncler “Eh dai!” Roberto Cavalli hollered, throwing his arm up in the air to signal a higher bid in a war over a watch. “Oh go on then!” The crowd at the amfAR (American Foundation for AIDS Research) charity dinner in Milan was on tenterhooks to see how high the auction would go.


moncler jackets for men Mr. Cavalli had seemed to be ready to take home the blingy diamond-encrusted red gold Hublot for 65,000 euros. But a man in a turquoise jacket at the back of the room unexpectedly topped the Italian designer at 70,000 euros.


outlet moncler “We’ll seat you much closer to the front of the room next year,” auctioneer Andy Moose said to the mystery bidder.


moncler jackets Juliette Lewis , who emceed this year’s event, gave it a tamer feel than last year, when Sharon Stone hosted. “I’m sorry I’m not Sharon Stone, I get wild in other places,” she deadpanned.


moncler outlet Mr. Cavalli, who had shown his latest clothing collection at Milan Fashion Week earlier in the day, asked to see the watch up close. Event photographers snapped furiously as he fondled it and consulted with his entourage, including his wife Eva, socialite Bianca Brandolini and Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani .


outlet moncler Fashion’s biggest names were under pressure to buy some of the evening’s big ticket items. “ Remo Ruffini is in the house! Moncler is in the house!” Goga Ashkenazi had chanted earlier in the evening, trying to get the Moncler boss to pony up for a Terry O’Neill shot of Sophia Loren . Mr. Ruffini resisted and went home empty-handed.


Mr. Cavalli gave into the pressure. He went for 75,000 euros and the crowd cheered. But the man in the turquoise jacket immediately shot back with 80,000 euros. The volley went back and forth until it topped 100,000 euros. It looked as if Mr. Cavalli was going to lose out.


Then, from the stage, auctioneer Mr. Moose announced that Hublot was offering to throw in a second of the nearly-one-of-a-kind watch if both bidders forked over 100,000 euros. They agreed, making amFAR the real winner of the auction.

Wholesale Supplier Apparel & Sarong Announces the New Arrival of Men’s Pocket Watches
Apparel & Sarong wholesalesarong.com adds new men’s pocket watches to its wholesale jewelry catalog.
wholesale pocket watches from WholesaleSarong.com
(PRWEB) October 10, 2013

watches Today, Wholesalesarong.com unveils that it is banking on its latest import of cheap China made men pocket watches to lead its charge in the competitive US wholesale market. The latest import is yet another move from the company to show its intent to consolidate its market leadership position n the US/Canada wholesale watch sector. The latest shipment carries an assortment of designs, from the rustic looking bronze cover pocket watch to more retro style alternatives.


replica patek philippe aquanaut In 1996, wholesalesarong.com started operation as a web based outsource partner to a number of web savvy retailers to import cheap yet decent quality products in limited amount from Asia like China and Indonesia. Today the company is regarded as the largest wholesale supplier of wholesale gift items, novelty products, jewelry, clothing, and watches. Instead of relying solely on the website to administer its business, the company is also helped by the physical offices and warehouses located strategically in North America. This has benefited wholesalesarong.com hugely as the presence has helped the owner and its customers to have more control on the supply chain and ease price pressure. The saving from efficient supply chain is passed on to retailers as the company believes these customers must be able to retain a decent profit at the end of the sale.


replica patek philippe calatrava “The pocket watch has come a long way. First developed in the 16th century, it has survived the test of time, judging by its continued presence in modern world, especially since the emergence of the threat of wrist watch. The physical form does not take a drastic transformation during this time, that I think is what makes pocket watch still so alluring these days. People simply like the rustic old look, and reminiscent about good old days, I think. The features have also been the same, a chain hooked to the pocket watch and you secure it to the waistcoat, lapel or belt loop. The protective cover, usually made of bronze, protects the watch face from scratches,” the wholesalesarong.com spokesman starts with a product introduction, explaining the anatomy of the watch.


best replica patek philippe watches Indeed the physical appearance may stay the same throughout these years, but there is no stopping on human ingenuity to apply the final touch. The samples on display here show off models with different material choices, color coatings and pendant designs. For a full listing, check out the wholesalessarong.com website.


patek philippe watches Wholesalesarong.com delivers all orders within 3-5 days. The delivery mode is standard UPS ground. For retailers outside U.S. and Canada please check the website for alternative shipping modes.

the north face outlet online SEOUL: North Korea has agreed with an international consortium to develop a new high-tech district in Kaesong, close to the newly-reopened industrial zone it operates with the South, state media said on Friday.

the north face outlet online The jointly-run Kaesong industrial zone was shut in April amid high cross-border tensions. Seoul and Pyongyang agreed last month to reopen the park, but relations have since soured again.

north face jackets The North's announcement of a new international deal came after South Korea said on Monday it had postponed a planned investment road show aimed at drumming up foreign interest in Kaesong.

the north face outlet Seoul said the move reflected a recent downturn in relations and slow progress at talks aimed at resuming full operations at the complex.

the north face sale Pyongyang's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said the North had reached an agreement on building a "high-tech development district" in Kaesong with a consortium of East Asian and Middle Eastern companies.

"They will soon enter the implementation phase of the project", it said, adding that the consortium also agreed to enter a joint venture with the North to build a highway linking Pyongyang's airport to the city.

South Korea's Unification Ministry spokesman said it had no official comment, but stressed the project had "nothing to do with the existing Kaesong zone".

The firms named by KCNA were also tight-lipped about their participation.

The North's official newspaper, Rodong Sinmun, said North Korea on Thursday wrapped up a two-day international forum in Pyongyang - with experts from the United States, China, Canada, India and elsewhere - on developing special economic zones nationwide.

Professor Yang Moo-Jin of the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul said Pyongyang was looking to pressure South Korea into making greater high-tech investments in the North.

North Korea effectively shut down Kaesong, which lies 10 kilometres on its side of the border, when it withdrew its 53,000 workers from the complex in April.

As military tensions eased, Seoul and Pyongyang agreed last month to reopen the industrial park, but relations have since soured again, with the North railing against what it sees as the South's "hostility".

South Korea has been pressing for foreign investment in Kaesong, believing the presence of overseas firms would make it harder for Pyongyang to shut down the complex in the future.

But many experts question who would be attracted by a project run by two countries that are still technically at war.

Handbags are in big demand – and that’s just the men

Money tips and advice

It’s a well-known fact that women of the UAE know how to wear a handbag. Last month marked the celebration of National Handbag Day in the United States. I am sure it will only be time until the UAE has its own National Handbag Day, especially when you begin to understand the value of this new emerging trend.

So it got me thinking, why are handbags so important to women? And is this trend becoming important to men too?


Well, the truth is nothing quite unites women (who love style) like a handbag. If you’re like me, then you carry your life around in your handbag – phone, wallet(s), nappies, bottles, snacks and, of course, our beloved make-up, which gets its own special bag.

Before parenthood, I certainly bought more handbags than I do today, a clutch for this and another handbag for that. My love affair for handbags reached its peak when I came across my LV Neverfull bag. It’s not the most glamorous of bags, but it is practical. So much so, in fact, that I have not bought another bag since.


The reason is because of the design and quality. It has the flexibility to be a school bag for many young women, a briefcase for the corporate woman and even a nappie bag for the stylish mum.

Handbags are an essential part of our everyday lives, but a question many women have asked me over and over again is: are they a good investment?

So, are they?

Well, some women and many men have disagreed with me and believe that spending on a bag is a big waste of money. I am on the other team, as you might have guessed. I think we all have a choice on what we spend our money on and I think a handbag is a good investment.


I acknowledge that you only have so much money to spend each month, so spend it mindfully and don’t spend all of it. Last year I encouraged a good friend of mine who works in finance to buy her own LV Neverfull bag, and just this week she told me this really was a great investment.

And yet despite National Handbag Day being celebrated in America, it’s not all good in the luxury world. Data from the research firm Euromonitor International confirms that the luxury industry is in a bit of a slump. Global luxury sales are on track to grow 3 per cent this year, the slowest rate in four years.


Euromonitor believes that growth will pick up next year, though, driven by its strongest segment in recent years: accessories, specifically men’s accessories. What? Yes that’s right, the “man’s purse” is now big business.

Looking back on my many conversations with men – who haven’t agreed with me that a handbag is a good investment – and it appears that they were wrong. The handbag is a good investment, even for investors.


Over the past five years, sales of men’s handbags have grown at nearly twice the rate of the overall luxury industry. The man bag market in Asia has doubled since 2008, and in the Middle East it is growing by two-thirds over the same period.

The global market for men’s luxury bags will reach just under US$9 billion this year, according to Euromonitor.

My husband is a good example of the trend. He has more bags than me. Yes that’s right – as a photographer he is always researching different ways to travel faster and lighter and getting through airports with ease. And every trip or photographic adventure seems to demand a new camera bag – or man bag of some description. He loves his man bags and he has plenty of them, too.


Many of us will have noticed that men have been quietly carrying around what women have been addicted to for decades – a bag for their essential items.

Men have finally learnt just how important it is to have a bag to carry their “stuff”. All those cameras, lenses, electronics, chargers, headphones, glasses, keys and even their wallets.

So what does all this mean? Simply put, men are taking a page out of the women’s book and moving towards the bag.


Once a source of mockery – the man bag is the new emerging market and there are $9bn reasons why. Lets see how long it will take for the UAE to have a National Man Bag Day.

rolex After months of speculation, Falken Tire has announced plans to continue competition in American sports car racing in the 2014 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship. The GT team will compete in 10 of the 11 races open to the GTLM class of the 2014 calendar with the exception of the season opening race, the Rolex 24 at Daytona.


replica watches Previously running 2008, 2010 and 2012 versions of the Porsche 911 GT3 RSR, Team Falken Tire will upgrade to the new 2014 Porsche 911 RSR, which is based off of the newest-generation 911 street car. The team was given the opportunity to test privately before Petit Le Mans. Among a field of factory based-teams, the Falken team will be one of few privateer teams in the GTLM class.   


rolex watch Team Falken Tire finished out the 2013 season victorious, running formally retired 2010 Porsche to beat out the factory teams after 1,000 miles of racing to claim the final American Le Mans Series Petit Le Mans win. Team manager Derrick Walker will return to reprise his role, utilizing his Indianapolis-based shop to oversee the day-to-day operations of the race team with his Walker Racing crew. Falken Tire veterans Bryan Sellers and Porsche factory driver Wolf Henzler will return as the drivers for the No. 17 Porsche.  


rolex submariner replica "To go out in the last ALMS race on top, it was a great victory for Falken Tire. They worked so hard to get this victory. It's great to see Falken continuing on into the United SportsCar Series," said Walker. "The commitment they've given to racing has been amazing. They're a very determined company to produce quality tires in the toughest environment.


fake rolex watches "This news is great for racing. When you look at the new 911, it's a bigger step from the current car in terms of optimizing what it needs for a very competitive GT series. It will have all the things every racer needs: more downforce, lighter, more power, more grip, more mechanical grip. Porsche is continuing to make a serious commitment to GT racing and I couldn't be happier."  


rolex watch Falken veteran Sellers added, "I am very excited and honored to be returning with Falken Tire, especially after a victory like the final Petit Le Mans. After all the work, it was truly breathtaking. It's very important I have continuity in a program and I am glad Wolf and Derrick will be returning as part of the program as well. I am very hopeful for the future of our program."


"Porsche has enjoyed a long relationship with Falken Tire in both the United States and in Europe," noted Jens Walther, president and CEO, Porsche Motorsports North America. "In the States, 2014 will mark our sixth year working together. It has been a great partnership and Falken Tire has made a strong commitment as the only customer Porsche 911 RSR program in the USA for 2014. Manufacturers will drive the GT Le Mans class in the Tudor United SportsCar Championship but, over the years, Team Falken Tire has proven themselves more than capable of racing with and winning against works efforts in a very competitive and balanced class. Their addition to our own two-car 911 RSR factory program will positively benefit all involved."

Sports Shoes Outlet Shop By Victoria Bryan

FRANKFURT, Nov 7 (Reuters) - Adidas forecast a$2.7 billion boost to sales from next year's soccer World Cupwould help it over a tough 2013, and said it would fend offrival Nike in hotly-contested European markets withinnovative running gear.

Adidas, the world's No. 2 maker of sportswear andaccessories, has struggled this year to maintain momentum aftera big boost in 2012 from the Olympics and European soccerchampionship, and warned in September sales and profits wouldnot rise as much as expected.

The company confirmed on Thursday that third quarteroperating profit dropped 6 percent and sales fell 7 percent,hurt by distribution problems in Russia, a currency hit in NorthAmerica and Japan, and poor sales of golfing products.

To make matters worse, Adidas lost market share to Nike onits European home turf.

It had 13.2 percent of the western European sporting goodsmarket to Nike's 12.4 percent in 2012, according to data fromEuromonitor. Nike reported an 8 percent rise in sales in westernEurope in its fiscal first quarter to the end of August, whileAdidas posted a fall of 6 percent at constant currencies in itsthird quarter.

Adidas Chief Executive Herbert Hainer denied a recent reportthat Nike had overtaken Adidas in terms of soccer sales inGermany and vowed to defend the group's prize business.

"We have a lot of ammunition to fight back," he toldjournalists, noting that increased levels of World Cup stock -jerseys and match balls - are now being shipped out ahead ofrelease in a couple of weeks.

Adidas will also launch more soccer shoes with the help ofBarcelona star Lionel Messi who fronts its new range of brightlycoloured Samba boots.

The sportswear firm traditionally performs well in yearswith major sporting events. Its forecast for soccer sales ofmore than 2 billion euros ($2.7 billion) in 2014 would be arecord and an increase of a third compared with 1.5 billion inthe last World Cup year.

Shares in Adidas, which hit a record high of 88.50 euros inAugust, were up 3.5 percent and outperforming a flat widermarket at 1135 GMT as investors welcomed results asforecast and looked to better earnings next year.

"All the bad news (is) on the table now," DZ Bank analystHerbert Sturm said, referring to the company's earlier profitwarning. "We expect a series of positive news flow in the nextmonths to come."

RUNNING AWAY FROM NIKE

Chief Financial Officer Robin Stalker explained a 6 percentjump in inventories by saying the group had already increasedstock levels ahead of an expected upturn in demand.

"We anticipate sales in next three to six months to behigher than the same period last year," he said.

Aside from soccer, Hainer said Adidas was well placed totake on Nike in the running market, where it has increased salesby 14 percent so far this year.

The group has launched two new running shoes this year -Boost and Springblade, the first with cushioning in the sole,the second with futuristic-looking blades on the sole. Hainersaid the latter was doing well with consumers in the UnitedStates, Brazil and Russia.

"We will roll it out further in 2014," he said.

In a bid to outdo Nike's popular Fuelband fitness monitor,Adidas has also unveiled a new running watch that can track thewearer's run, heartbeat, offer coaching tips and play music.

"Losing leadership in Western Europe - their home market -would be a very tough pill to swallow," said Euromonitor analystMagdalena Kondej. "But they recognise the threat and theycontinue focusing on innovation. That puts them in a goodposition once European markets recover."

A bright spot was the Reebok brand, where sales rose 5percent in the three months to end-September, the second quarterin a row of growth as a new focus on fitness pays off.

Hainer also said Adidas was making "good progress" on its2015 targets for sales of 17 billion euros and an operatingmargin of 11 percent, goals that had come under scrutiny afterthe profit warning.

Third quarter sales were 3.88 billion euros and operatingprofit 463 million ($626 million), both slightly below theaverage estimates in a Reuters poll. Despite this, the groupimproved its gross profit margin - a key measure ofprofitability in the apparel industry - 1.9 percentage points to49.3 percent on higher prices and sales in its own shops.

Adidas maintained a forecast for sales to rise by a lowsingle digit percentage in 2013 and to achieve an operatingmargin of around 8.5 percent.

Who Would You Rather… Nike or Adidas?

Tickers : ADDYY , NKE
Share:

nike The athletic apparel market is one of the largest and most profitable in the world, but that isn't news to anyone over the age of, say, 10 years old. What else is not news is the fact that Nike (NYSE: NKE ) and Adidas (OTC: ADDYY ) are two of the world's biggest players in the athletic apparel game and have been for the better part of the last forty years. So for the savvy Wall Street investor, which is the better bet for a long-term investment?


Cheap Nike Steelers Jerseys For Sale They both are strong publicly traded companies that show significant profitability year after year in the same sector. They both have all the financial bells and whistles that investors look for in a stock, like solid market share and expected increases in respective revenues over the next several years. And they both…well, they're both just really solid investments from top to bottom. So who would you rather… Nike or Adidas?


Nike Factory Outlet Let's start with market value. Nike is currently the world leader in athletic apparel and footwear manufacturing and enjoys a market value of close to $50 billion. Adidas on the other hand, sits in the number two position worldwide in the same sector and has a market value of about $12 billion.


nike factory store shoes In 2012, two major athletic competitions – the Olympic Games in London and the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) Euro 2012 – proved to be every bit the powerful drivers of the sports apparel industry that they were expected to be, which thus far has led to significant market share gains and revenue increases that are likely to continue for the next several years for both companies.


nike cheap nike But that was over a year ago and while both companies are still performing well, Adidas has begun to lose ground in the sports apparel race. Since the Olympic and UEFA festivities died down at the end of summer 2012 and all of the hype surrounding them faded, demand in Europe, Adidas's number one market, has dwindled significantly.


nike shoes cheap The ever-diminishing value of the American dollar hasn't helped matters either as the company's number two market – North America – also served up lower sales numbers. Sales made in U.S. dollars in North America, as well as in other currencies around the globe, have a lower value thanks to the comparatively stronger euro.


What makes a huge difference in Nike's formidable lead in the sector is its presence in the National Football League. While soccer – or futbol, as our friends across the pond and everywhere else in the world call it – dominates the sporting world in much of Europe, American football is the king of sports in the United States by an almost unfairly gigantic margin.


While most professional futbol players in Europe wear Adidas, Nike is the exclusive supplier of NFL jerseys here in the States. But the NFL is just the beginning for Nike in terms of the reasons for them being the preferred stock over Adidas. Its subsidiaries are huge and include the likes of Hurley International and Converse. And with products like Nike Pro, Nike Golf, Nike+, and the global juggernaut Air Jordan Jumpman brand under its belt (to say nothing of the aforementioned lead in market share value) Nike seems to be the stock to beat, not only now but for the foreseeable future.



So, who would you rather? Nike or Adidas? Inquiring minds want to know.

Tiffany, Hasbro, MotionPoint: Intellectual Property
By Ellen Rosen -
2013-11-01T13:28:42Z
Stock Chart for Tiffany & Co (TIF)

tiffany An arbitrator ordered Hasbro Inc. (HAS) to
pay about $72.9 million in royalties to Atlanta-based Johnson
Research & Development Co., one of its licensors, over the
toymaker’s line of Nerf guns.


tiffany jewelry Johnson Research has a separate case pending in federal
court in Atlanta which seeks royalties from Hasbro’s line of the
popular Super Soakers, which were invented 25 years ago by
Johnson’s founder, Lonnie G. Johnson, an engineer.


wholesale tiffany jewelry The royalties claimed are somewhat unusual. They relate to
Hasbro products that are based on the appearance of products
that are manufactured using technology licensed from Johnson
Research.


tiffany & co Johnson initiated both the arbitration and the litigation
in February. The allegations in both the arbitration and
litigation are similar, Benjamin Easterlin IV, Johnson’s lawyer,
said in a telephone interview yesterday. He said that the case
in federal court is in the discovery phase.


tiffany outlet online Hasbro “strongly disagrees with the arbitrator’s ruling
and is considering all possible appeals and challenges to the
award,” according to a statement from the Pawtucket, Rhode
Island-based company.


tiffany In the statement, the toymaker said it “anticipates taking
an additional charge to its earnings for” the fiscal third
quarter, which ended Sept. 29. Its stock closed yesterday at
$51.65, a drop of one percent.


The arbitration award isn’t public yet.


The Super Soaker case is Johnson Research & Development Co.
v. Hasbro Inc., 1:13-cv-00451, U.S. District Court, Northern
District of Georgia (Atlanta).


Sequenom’s Patent for Prenatal Testing Invalidated by Judge

A prenatal test produced Ariosa Diagnostics Inc. doesn’t
infringe a patent licensed by Sequenom Inc. (SQNM) , a federal court
ruled.


U.S. District Judge Susan Illston in San Francisco found
that Ariosa’s Harmony test, which uses cell-free fetal DNA in a
pregnant woman’s blood to determine fetal abnormalities, didn’t
infringe Sequenom’s patent 6,258,540. The patent, according to
the Oct. 30 opinion, relates to prenatal detection methods that
are “non-invasive” and can be used instead of tests such as
amniocentesis.


Illston, following Supreme Court decisions that prohibit
the patenting of “laws of nature and natural phenomena,” found
that Sequenom’s patent was invalid. The judge agreed with San
Jose, California-based Ariosa that the methods contained in the
patent were insufficient to find it valid.


In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission
yesterday, San Diego-based Sequenom said it disagrees with the
order and will appeal to the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals.


Sequenom yesterday dropped 23 percent to close at $1.92.


The case is Ariosa Diagnostics, Inc. v. Sequenom, Inc.,
11-06391, U.S. District Court, Northern District of California
(San Francisco).


Victoria’s Secret, Delta Websites Caught in Translation Spat

MotionPoint Corp. , a maker of technology that translates
business websites into foreign languages for customers such as
Victoria’s Secret Stores LLC and Delta Air Lines Inc. (DAL) , is asking
a judge not to block its core product in a patent lawsuit
brought by a rival.


A federal jury in Oakland, California, found in July that
closely held MotionPoint, whose customers also include the U.S.
Centers for Disease Control, directly infringed a patent held by
TransPerfect Global Inc. and should pay $1 million in damages.
New York-based TransPerfect, whose customers include Home Depot
Inc. (HD) and American Airlines Inc., is seeking a permanent
injunction barring the sale or use of MotionPoint technology
that directly or indirectly infringes the patent.


The two companies have competed head-to-head for customers,
with closely held TransPerfect losing clients to MotionPoint and
at times lowering its prices as much as 20 percent to compete,
Michael Eisenberg, TransPerfect’s lawyer, said in a court
filing.


“TransPerfect would risk losing potential new customers
for its entire range of products and services, which is a
recognized harm found to support an injunction,’ Eisenberg said
in the filing.


‘‘I would not enjoin your entire system,’’ U.S. District
Judge Claudia Wilken said at a hearing yesterday. ‘‘What I would
enjoin is the infringing portion. I think it is the kind of case
that would involve an injunction.’’


Wilken ordered both companies to file arguments about what
an injunction should include and enter mediation to try to
settle the dispute. She didn’t rule on whether to grant an
injunction.


If an injunction isn’t granted, TransPerfect may seek a
running royalty rate of more than 4 percent of sales of
infringing technologies.


‘‘We are not seeking an injunction of what they are not
infringing,” Douglas Lumish, an attorney for TransPerfect, said
during the hearing. “We would be happy to negotiate it with
them.”


MotionPoint, based in Coconut Creek, Florida , provides
translation services for more than 1,800 websites, its lawyers
said in a court filing. An injunction targeting its services on
customer websites would “deny hundreds of thousands, if not
millions, of foreign language speakers access to translated
versions of websites,” Matt Robson, MotionPoint’s attorney,
said in a court filing.


The case is TransPerfect Global Inc. v. MotionPoint Corp.,
10-cv-02950, U.S. District Court, Northern District of
California (Oakland).

Trademark
Tiffany Wins Injunction, Damages Against Counterfeiters

Tiffany & Co. (TIF) won a trademark case filed earlier this year
against 78 companies that sold counterfeit Tiffany jewelry on
their websites.


U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra in Miami awarded the
company $2.18 million in damages on Oct. 29 along with a
permanent injunction.


The 78 defendants sold counterfeit Tiffany goods via
websites which also infringed Tiffany’s trademarks, such as
salestiffany.net, shoptiffanyco.com, tiffanyandcomall.com and
bluejewelrybox.com. The judgment required that the website
operators’ domain names be transferred to Tiffany.


Michael Kowalski, chairman and chief executive officer of
Tiffany, said in a statement, “Trademark counterfeiting
severely damages brand owners and consumers alike. The way to
stop it is to take aggressive action against the counterfeiters
and make them pay, civilly.”


Tiffany operates jewelry stores and manufactures products
through its subsidiaries and doesn’t authorize the sale of its
merchandise through any third-party websites. Authentic Tiffany
merchandise can only be purchased online through
www.tiffany.com.


Tiffany was represented by Stephen Gaffigan, a Fort
Lauderdale, Florida, lawyer who specializes in counterfeiting
suits.


In February, Tiffany accused Costco Wholesale Corp. (COST) in a
lawsuit of selling counterfeit Tiffany diamond engagement rings.
Costco isn’t authorized to sell Tiffany items, the New York-based jewelry retailer said in its complaint.


The case is Tiffany (NJ) LLC v 925jewelryonline.com, 13-cv-61311, U.S. District Court, Southern District of Florida
(West Palm Beach).


Nestles Sued for Trademark Infringement Over Pet Food Line

Nestle Purina PetCare Co., a unit of Nestle SA (NESN) , was sued by
Nature’s Variety Inc., a closely held pet food company, for
trademark infringement.


The lawsuit, filed Oct. 30 in federal court in New York,
alleges that Nestle’s Purina One Smart Blend True Instinct Pet
food is packaged “bearing a mark that is confusingly similar”
to Nature’s Variety Instinct mark for its pet food products. The
complaint says that Instinct brand is Nature’s Variety best-selling brand, “formulated to approximate the ancestral diet of
dogs and cats, consisting primarily of proteins, and are grain-free and gluten-free.”


While the complaint doesn’t disclose revenues, it says that
80 percent of the company’s sales come from the brand, which is
sold at independent retailers as well as Petco Animal Supplies
Inc.


Keith Schopp, a spokesman for St. Louis-based Nestle, said
in an e-mail that the company is “aware of the lawsuit filed by
Nature’s Variety. We are confident it is without merit and will
vigorously defend ourselves.”


Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP represents St. Louis-based
Nature’s Variety.


The case is Nature’s Variety Inc. v. Nestle Purina Petcare
Co., 13-CV-07676, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New
York ( Manhattan ).

Marvin Gaye’s Children Countersue Over Hit ‘Blurred Lines’

Two of Marvin Gaye’s children, Nona Marvisa Gaye and
Franklin Christian Gaye, sued singer Robin Thicke, his co-producers Pharrell Williams and Clifford Harris Jr. and others
Oct. 30 over the summer’s blockbuster hit “Blurred Lines.”


The Gaye family claims that the song infringed their
father’s classic “Got to Give It Up” because of the
“substantial similarities.” They also allege that other Thicke
songs copied Gaye’s “After the Dance” and “I Want You,” and
they name music publishers as well as the recording artists.


The suit was filed as a counterclaim to the case Thicke and
others filed in August seeking a judgment that the song didn’t
infringe Gaye’s classic. Both cases are in federal court in Los
Angeles.


Howard King, who represents Thicke, Williams and Harris,
said the counterclaim wasn’t a surprise. He said in a telephone
interview yesterday that after the Gaye family initially
complained about the song, they attempted to reach a settlement,
“not out of a sense of responsibility, but because we didn’t
need the controversy. But we couldn’t make the Gaye children
happy.”


The complaint also accuses music publisher EMI of breach of
contract and fiduciary duty for allegedly failing to protect the
copyrights for the Gaye songs. EMI, now owned by Sony/ATV Music
Publishing, a division of Sony Corp., (SNE) publishes music produced
by Williams.


Sony-ATV, which has hired Donald Zakarin of Pryor Cashman
LLP for the litigation, said in a statement, “While we have not
yet seen the claims by the Gaye family against EMI, we have
repeatedly advised the Gaye family’s attorney that the two songs
in question have been evaluated by a leading musicologist who
concluded that ‘Blurred Lines’ does not infringe ‘Got To Give It
Up.’”


King said that his clients hired three separate
musicologists who also said that the song didn’t infringe.


King & Ballow and Wargo French LLP represent the Gaye
family.


The Gaye’s case is Gaye v Williams, 2:13-cv-06004, U.S.
District Court, Central District of California (Los Angeles).
The original declaratory judgment case is Williams v. Bridgeport
Music, Inc., 2:13-cv-06004, U.S. District Court, Central
District of California (Los Angeles).

Mural Mural on the wall
November 16, 2013

chanel FMT LETTER : From Thomas Fann, via e-mailk


discount chanel In the same week that Super Typhoon Haiyan slammed into the Philippines, a different kind of storm came upon the southern city of Johor Baru. It was a most innocuous beginning, a series of wall murals by an internationally-recognised Lithuanian-born street artist known as Ernest Zacharevic or simply Zachas. When it was first unveiled in early November it created a buzz among the local community. Many have long admired Zachas’ works for Penang and was delighted that he has finally brought it to JB, a city not known for its appreciation of the arts.


chanel handbags outlet With news spreading of the existence of four murals around Taman Molek and Johor Jaya area, people began seeking out these works of art and to have their photos taken with them. My family and I joined in the search and snap trail. It was most amusing to find people snapping away at these murals in dirty back lanes of non-descript shophouses and treating them like treasures. Perhaps to a city that is like an art desert, it was a breath of arty fresh air that has finally blown in.


chanel replicas Tarnished image


chanel handbag outlet But not everyone was amused, least of all the city’s mayor, Ismail Karim and the state exco in charge of tourism, Tee Siew Keong. They found these murals offensive, in particular, one that shows a Lego figure as an armed robber lying in wait to rob from another Lego figure of a woman carrying a Chanel handbag. They claimed that it tarnishes the image of our good city and proceeded to paint over it. They are threatening to white-wash the remaining three as well.


chanel handbags online outlet The controversial mural of the Lego-styled figurines struck a chord with the locals and is easily the most popular of the four because it brought together two things that Johor is known for – Legoland and its crime rate. To many, it captures perfectly the disconnect between the fantasy theme park which is Legoland and the reality of life in this city. Johoreans are proud to have a world-class theme park in our midst but wish that our daily lives can be a little more safe and that the authorities would put as much effort into combating crimes as they do promoting the Iskandar region as some kind of playground for the rich or wannabe rich of the world.


Local official crime statistics are hard to come by and when one is given, they are often disbelieved as it does not bear up to the experience of local residences, many of whom are directly or indirectly, victims of crime. Gated and secured communities flourish as residents take measures to secure themselves. We have to give thought to where is safe to go to and always looking over our shoulders for snatch thieves on motorbikes. Even in our cars we have to make sure that our valuables are kept out of sight in case robbers smash our windows and grab valuables.  We live in constant fear of criminals.


Seizing the opportunity


The mural in question by Zachas should have been celebrated, not just for its artistic value but also for the social message it so accurately articulated, as the saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words” and this one spoke volumes. The authorities could have seized this opportunity to engage the community to fight crime and promote the art scene at the same time.


But perhaps predictably, they went into denial mode, blaming the messenger instead of heeding the message. Can art as the medium of the message ever tarnish the image of a city? If the message is false, it would have been discredited by the public itself without the need for the mayor or politicians to opine. But if the message is true, then we should all accept it and deal with the issue at hand – crime.


Truth cannot tarnish the image of our city. Crime and lack of cleanliness do.  Our reputation has already been tarnished by these long before Zachas arrived on the scene. You just need to ask any Singaporean or people from outside JB and they would have told you so. In fact, according to Numbeo, the world’s largest database of user contributed data about cities and countries worldwide, Johor Baru ranked No 4 for its Crime Index globally, just below Johannesburg. A truly world-class ranking!


Cleanliness and crime


I want to talk about cleanliness of this city which is the responsibility of the city council MBJB with the Mayor as its head. In my humble opinion, Johor Baru is filthy. I am not talking about the places where tourists or investors are shown but the places where the locals reside. One just has to walk around the housing estates and their back lanes to see and smell the filth. Loan sharks act with impunity, pasting their stickers and hanging their banners over road signs and properties.


So what has cleanliness of the city to do with crime?  It is a known and proven fact that there is a direct correlation between the two. A criminological theory called Broken Windows proposes that untended disorder and minor offenses give rise to serious crimes and urban decay. It suggests that local authorities and the community must attend to every minor infractions, every potential disorder, paint over every grafitti and yes, fix every “broken window”.


Not attending to such minor offenses such as littering or pasting of illegal stickers sends a very clear message to would-be criminals that no one really cares about the city and that they are likely to get away with whatever criminal activities they embark upon.


Learning from New York


One big case study where the (No) Broken Window Theory was successfully implemented was New York City some twenty years ago. Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Police Commissioner William Bratton were largely credited with dramatically bringing down the crime figures of one of the most dangerous cities in the world twenty years ago. But it was the joint effort of many authorities and civil society groups that transformed New York City to what it is today, one of the safest big cities in the US.


Tackling crime in a city like JB is not just the job of the police but the combined efforts of all stakeholders of this city. The city council has a huge role to play to keep the city clean and orderly. Other government departments are needed to maintain the roads, the drainage system, landscaping, street lighting, garbage collection, sewage and sanitation and road transport department, all need to do their part and take a zero tolerance attitude to any violations or failings.


The police who have long been unfairly held solely responsible for failure to reduce crime does have a key role to play. Instead of focusing on crime-solving, more needed to be done for crime prevention or deterrence. New York’s Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly credited proactive policing for the city’s dramatic drop in crime rate and perhaps it is something our police force can learn from.


Conclusion


Finally, a major stakeholder for a safer city has to be the residents themselves who are the victims of an unsafe environment. Many local residents have probably given up hope that anything can be done to combat crimes and have instead focused on improving personal security instead. But without the involvement of the community, crime fighting would be an uphill task.  Citizens must adopt a zero tolerance attitude, not just towards crime but also to sub-standard services by the local authorities. We need to pick up the phone if garbage is not collected, if illegal stickers or banners appear in our neighbourhood, if we observe suspicious activities or characters and persevere until our complaints are attended to.


Zachas has inadvertently struck a raw nerve in our city with the two Lego-styled characters of a robber and his victim.  People here are sick and tired of living in fear and haplessness as criminal elements, both minor and major terrorise us and we have to put up with poor delivery of public services.


As of the time of this writing, citizens have reacted to the council’s action by putting up paste-on replicas of the Lego pair all over town.  It is a form of protest over the drastic action of the council in removing the original mural and also seizing the opportunity afforded by this affair to bring awareness to the real issue of crime.


It is my hope that the Mayor, the police, politicians, government agencies, civil society groups and the public would take this renewed focus on crime to start working together to come out with concrete action plans to make our city a safer place. Denying the problem won’t make it go away, it will keep reappearing, just like the replicas would.


The writer is is the Chairman of ENGAGE, a NGO whose mission is to nurture a community of informed, engaged citizens and make their shared concerns and interests part of the national agenda.

Antiques & Design Show In Chappaqua Marks 45th Year
By W.A. Demers

ARTICLE TOOLS

tiffany CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. — The weather gods were with the New Castle Historical Society this year as it staged its 45th annual Chappaqua antiques show at the Westorchard School on November 2–3. The highly anticipated event of the fall antiquing season in the Northeast was dealt a snowy blow in 2011 when a freak early blizzard brought down trees and power lines over the show’s weekend run. Then, last year, Superstorm Sandy surged up the East Coast and cancelled the event.


tiffany silver This year, however, temperatures were suitably autumnal, the skies clear and sunny as about 45 antiques dealers set up their collections inside the school’s two main gymnasiums and along corridors. The two-day show also featured an appraiser, a design consultant, a rug restoration service, glass repair and the society’s popular Gold in Your Attic booth offering treasures pried from Westchester attics. The event raises funds to support the society’s Horace Greeley House Museum and its myriad activities for students, adults and researchers.


tiffany and co outlet Show chairs Buffy Haas and Nancy Ruffner, plus a team of 150 energetic volunteers, were good to go on Saturday morning to make the show come to life — and dealers came to life as well with a wide variety of wares to tempt showgoers, from silver, jewelry, posters, quilts and textiles to midcentury furnishings, rare maps and books, folk art and collectibles.


tiffany Betsy Guardenier, the society’s president, commented, “The 45th annual Chappaqua Antiques Show was a great success! Our gate was up from two years ago. The majority of the dealers did well, and many of the dealers raved about the show. Bob Barbo of All Your Yesterdays mentioned that ‘Yours is the best show. You take such good care of your dealers.’ The café and the homemade desserts were a sell-out. The celebration to honor the town’s volunteer first responders, who were the show’s honorees, was a special event for the New Castle community one year after Sandy forced the cancellation of the show last year.”


tiffany outlet store As promised, the show did have something for just about everyone. Its theme of “Antiques & Design” raised the bar for participating dealers, many of whom did not just bring “stuff,” but also presented it in attractive, designerly fashion. Hubert and Susan van Asch van Wyck, co-owners of Black Swan Antiques, Washington, Conn., for example, put together a cozy room display featuring some of the bespoke furniture pieces that Hubert creates using a fusion of antique papers and classic forms. Centered in the display was a Midcentury Modern-like leather covered table designed by Hubert, 26½ by 26½ by 22 inches, flanked by a pair of armchairs in the style of Milo Baughman, circa 1970s, and topped with a collection of Italian glass balls, stone fruit and four Dutch Seventeenth Century roemers. Artwork by Susan rendered in charcoal, pencil and pastels graced the booth’s walls .


tiffany & co In another area of the show, Margaret and Vincent Rowan, owners of Fenwood Studio, Mahopac, N.Y., offered, among their many antiques and collectibles, a Nineteenth Century Biedermeier table in walnut with harp base, a Shaker dining table and French walnut armchairs with profuse carved decoration on arms and aprons. The large dining table was one of five designed and constructed by Thomas Fisher for a church family of Shakers at Enfield, Conn., in 1876. Such tables were made to be used in the huge first floor dining room just in time for Thanksgiving dinner, and white inlays in the table’s surface indicated a separate space for each family — four families to a table.


Artwork on offer in the Rowans’ booth included a William Lester Stevens (1888–1969) winter scene, 29 by 24 inches, and a Georgina Nemethy (b 1950) view of the Coney Island side-wheeler Dreamland plying the Hudson River. Stevens was an Impressionist painter born in Rockport, Mass., and Nemethy is the daughter of the late Hungarian-American artist Albert Szatmar Nemethy and sister of painter George Nemethy.


Jewelry was plentiful at the show, notably presented by Jamie’s Antiques, Croton-on-Hudson, N.Y., and James Levinson, Inc, of New York City, among others. Jamie Shenkman offered a choice selection that featured Czech necklaces that until recently, according to the dealer, “had never seen the light.” She also had some nice examples of French Egyptian Revival jewelry, again in vogue, including some scarab necklaces from the 1920s–30s. Among Levinson’s glittering treasures were single-stone Tiffany earrings and designer earclips from the 1940s up to today.


Ron and Marilyn Saland, Scarsdale, N.Y., decked out their booth with an oil painting on canvas by Kenneth Fass (1901–1980), a local Chappaqua artist who had created the portrait as a Christmas gift for a neighbor, a working decoy, “Old Fowler,” from Old Saybrook, Conn., a pair of cast iron Sealyham terrier bookends, an early Nineteenth Century six-board child’s blanket chest, a group of ten framed Seventeenth–Nineteenth Century delft tiles and an early Twentieth Century demilune hooked rug.


Fine prints were offered by Lynne Ward Fine Art, Norwalk, Conn., who displayed four Italian shell prints by Niccolò Gualtieri (1688–1744), attractively custom framed in shells, as well as depictions of German ships and an interesting collection of full color Victorian house design prints by the Scientific American Architects and Builders, an edition of street views and schematics of Connecticut residences (1885–894).


A stylish Hermes A-line coat in eggshell blue was among the 1970s fashions offered by Elaine Klausman of Vintage With a Twist, Bedford, N.Y., along with racks abristle with furs and faux furs, while another warming thought was evoked via the enduring appeal of antique Oriental rugs on display by the Caravan Connection, Bedford Hills, N.Y.


And, yes, there was “brown” furniture to be had, such as a pair of mahogany chests flanking a prewar 1930s wing chair with original upholstery at Albert Joseph & Co., Woodbury, Conn. The dealer also offered a couple of barrister bookshelves, one a three-part unit, circa 1900. A leaded glass china cabinet, an Art Nouveau sideboard in quartersawn oak with beveled mirrors and a Dutch curio cabinet with five shelves were also featured in the dealer’s booth. “Everyone has something they want to view,” said Joseph of the curio cabinet.


The show turned out okay for Judith Lesser, owner of Antiques at Home, Frederick, Md., “although I’d always like more customers!” she said. “Sunday was my better day, and I was pleased to sell three Art Deco Shelley Vogue trios. English Deco ceramics are my particular interest and specialty, and I enjoy passing the interest on to others.”

I Can't Stop Watching This Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Ad watches This ad is a month old, but I just caught it on TV recently and now I have to watch it on YouTube daily. Why am I suddenly compelled to buy a Mitsubishi Outlander Sport?high quality replica watches for men It's not often you hear the opening verse of Bobby Caldwell's "What You Won't Do For Love" in the middle of the night on CNN, which is what happened to me when I first saw this commercial. This song is what makes the commercial. And it's the last song you'd expect to hear in a car ad. high quality swiss replica watches Growing up and still living in a city with four (formerly five) R&B stations and a smooth jazz station, "What You Won't Do For Love" is one of those songs that's inescapable but never gets old. (Or maybe you know it better as the foundation of Tupac's "Do For Love." ) Still, now every time I hear this song, I'll think Mitsubishi. And that's not a bad thing.replica watches It's risky for any company to use a beloved R&B song in ads, especially since everything either leans heavily on classic rock or, nowadays, techno and dubstep. And unlike some commercials, it actually tries to sell the car a little bit by showing what it can do — the panoramic moonroof, nav system, and push start might be common and lame, but the average crossover shopper can visibly see that it's all available. swiss replica watches So kudos to Mitsubishi for trying.

Beats by Dre president defends headphones after criticism that they're too 'bass heavy'

The president of Beats by Dre has defended the sound quality of the company's headphones.
Luke Wood has disagreed with accusations that the headphones are too 'bass heavy'. Speaking to BBC Newsbeat , Wood said: "I've certainly heard that as an opinion on the headphone, I disagree. We didn't go to build a reference headphone, something you build in the studio that is really a technical tool to hear when you are recording."
He added: "If you look at Dre's pedigree, Jimmy's [Iovine] pedigree, even my pedigree, we are all recording engineers. What we did is build a headphone for playback. What does it sound like right when it is finished? And that is what we've accomplished."
Wood refused to discuss rumours about sockets on Apple products being changed to accept only Beats headphones following Apple buying Beats earlier this year. "I'm not here to talk about Apple with you today," he said. "The truth is that the deal has not closed with Apple, which it will shortly, once it goes through regulatory approval. And at that point we'll actually sit down with Apple and figure it out. But right now, the truth is there's absolutely no plans made."
Apple is set to buy Dr. Dre 's Beats Music streaming service and headphones company Beats Electronics for $3 billion. Beats co-founders Dr Dre and Jimmy Iovine will join Apple as part of the deal. Iovine will leave Interscope, the label he co-founded, to work with Apple. "I've always known in my heart that Beats belonged with Apple," he said. "The idea when we started the company was inspired by Apple's unmatched ability to marry culture and technology. Apple's deep commitment to music fans, artists, songwriters and the music industry is something special."
Apple will pay $2.6 billion for the two businesses in addition to approximately $400 million "that will vest over time" they say in a press release. Announcing the deal, Apple's CEO Tim Cook stated: "Music is such an important part of all of our lives and holds a special place within our hearts at Apple. That’s why we have kept investing in music and are bringing together these extraordinary teams so we can continue to create the most innovative music products and services in the world."

Why COACH, Michael Kors, Apple, GM And New Balance Are Succeeding In China

new balance COACH COACH , Michael Kors , Apple Apple and New Balance, as well as brands like GM and Rebecca Minkoff are all succeeding in China and with the Chinese Global Consumer Demographic.


new balance 1600 Why them and not others?


new balance women What they all have in common is that they are American brands and they operate in the “affordable luxury” category in China.  While high and ultra high end luxury sales have been a mainstay of Chinese consumption over the last fifteen years, affordable luxury brands, retailers and products have risen to the top of the list of the most desired, purchased and beloved in China and among global Chinese consumers.


new balance 1500 As recently as six years ago, the question in China was: “We know there is a market in China for a $15.00 handbag and $5,000 handbag, will there ever be a market for $500 handbag?”


new balance 420 The answer now is a resounding yes. And  there is a market for a $700 iPhone, $150 sneakers, and  $800 dresses.


new balance shoes outlet A perfect storm of factors over the last three years have led to the exponential growth of the category:


An increased awareness and desire for American brands and American lifestyles and aesthetics
A newly sophisticated and savvy consumer seeking new brands beyond the traditional power brands
Increased e-commerce options and engagement
Increased travel abroad for pleasure and business
The explosion of China’s middle class
The now two year old government policy of discouraging outrageous displays of wealth

The desire for affordable luxury has grown so fast that now traditional ultra-premium brands are also offering new products at lower price points to compete in the category.  There is no doubt that in 2014,  and in the years to come, the affordable luxury sector will be a huge driver of consumption and brand growth in China.  That said, it is important to understand who Chinese affordable luxury consumers are and what motivates their purchase decisions.


The following is an except from my new book “China’s Super Consumers: What 1 billion Customers Want and How to Sell it To Them”  that explains who these consumers are, what  drives their purchase decisions, and how brands and retailers are, can, and should engage Chinese consumer demand for affordable luxury. My co-author, Savio Chan, and I  explain in detail the factors listed above as separate subjects in and of themselves, but also as they are relevant to the affordable luxury sector.


—————————–


A few years ago, the concept of “affordable or accessible luxury” as a market mover in China was little more than a dot on the horizon. Today, the situation couldn’t be more different. Affordable luxury brands (and traditional luxury brands that have expanded into the affordable luxury sector) have seen significant growth marked by rapid and profitable retail expansion, increased e-commerce sales, a loyal following of new middle-class customers, and renewed interest and sales from older, wealthier legacy customers.


Some brands sell only in the luxury space, never discounting and never marketing lower-priced or starter products. But other global luxury brands offer products in all three luxury categories (ultra, premium,and affordable luxury). For instance, you can buy a $40,000, $80,000 or $160,000 BMW; at Tiffany’s, you can spend $80,000 on a ring, $5,000 on a necklace, or $200 on a tie clip. In many cases, luxury brands develop separate accessible luxury lines, establishing their own brand identities in the global marketplace. Emporio Armani, which earlier this year opened a watch and jewelry store in Hong Kong, is poised for a leap to the mainland.


Historically, established European labels selling premium and ultra-luxury products to well-heeled Chinese consumers have dominated the luxury segment in China. But with urban, professional income ranging from $15,000 to $100,000 per year in first- and second-tier cities like Shanghai and Suzhou, and urban per-capita disposable income around $4,000 to $6,000 per year, a large new group of middle-class consumers (some 300 million of them) are emerging who seek luxury and accessible-luxury products.


The rise of the affordable-luxury sector has coincided with, and in part been fueled by, an increasing interest in American brands such as Coach, Michael Kors, and Kate Spade, which are expanding on the mainland. American brands in other lifestyle categories are succeeding as well, and are helping blaze the trail for the apparel, footwear, and accessory sectors. But accessible luxury growth is by no means limited to U.S. brands. H&M H&M , Zara Zara , and local favorite Shanghai Tang are succeeding as well.


This sector has become a key growth driver for the China luxury market, yet there is still some confusion on the part of brands and retailers about what defines accessible luxury in China, who the key consumers are, what trends are driving growth in the segment, and what strategies are working. Here is a breakdown of some of the trends as they relate to the Chinese consumer’s maturation process and the emergence of the three categories of luxury: ultra, premium, and affordable luxury.


• Been There, Done That – There is a sophisticated cohort of wealthy legacy luxury consumers who are looking to expand their purchasing options. These consumers are open to experimenting with new brands, new styles, and expanded offerings from trusted luxury brands—even at lower price points. They want to be leaders and trendsetters, not followers, and their discoveries in the accessible luxury sector address this interest.


• Teach Me – A new cohort of middle-class luxury consumers is seeking guidance on how to create a personal lifestyle. These consumers are looking to do this through a mix of accessible luxury and luxury purchases—a $2,000 handbag, for instance, accessorized with a more modest, accessible luxury scarf or shoes.


•The Pioneers – Outbound China travel has exploded over the past two years. Chinese travelers are projected to take 150 million outbound trips by 2020, making them the world’s most prolific travelers. These business and pleasure travelers—as well as students studying abroad—are exposed to brands they’ve never seen in China, or that have low profiles there. And when these travelers return, they seek these brands. They’ve known Louis Vuitton for years, but abroad they may discover such accessible luxury brands as C-Wonder or Belstaff.


• Home Sweet Home - A transformation from house to home/sanctuary is fueling sales in luxury audio, furniture, artwork, décor, and upscale hardware. Accessible luxury and luxury brands have an opportunity to seize on this new-found desire for inside as well as outside luxury. Delorme, the French bedding company, is ahead of the curve in this market, and Bang & Olufsen is making a major new investment and expansion in China. Also of note: Ralph Lauren will be opening lifestyle floors, selling home décor, within their stores in major shopping malls, such as Shanghai’s Plaza 66.
• Youth Movement - China’s young consumers are style-conscious and lifestyle-conscious. Those who live at home, subsidized by family, can spend upwards of 80 to 150 percent of their income on consumer products. They see accessible luxury goods as signifiers of status, individuality, and lifestyle orientation. If you can sell them a $500 bag now, as family wealth increases you may well sell them a $5,000 bag a few years down the road.


• The Red, White, and Blue – We foresee a continually growing interest among Chinese consumers in American brands and retailers, American style, and American aspirational living. The classic European, ultra, and luxury labels will continue to grow and prosper, but now there is room for more players at the table.


Looking at which international brands are growing and expanding in China and where the demographics are headed, there is no doubt that accessible luxury is now a key market driver in China. It is in the expansion of Coach, Michael Kors, and a dozen other American companies reporting profits from China—as well as European luxury companies offering new product levels and lifestyle stores—that we see the proof. As they experiment with their own personal brands, images, and styles, Chinese consumers want affordable luxury as well as traditional luxury and ultra-luxury products. Companies that spend the time and resources to understand the opportunity, to establish the right infrastructure—product mix, pricing models, and brand positioning—may well find that the accessible luxury sector is a driver of success in mainland markets. ___________________________


In what has been a less than stellar two years for luxury in China, affordable luxury has been a real bright spot.  I see this not as a trend, but as a major shift in Chinese consumption habits that will be fueled for years by a growing middle class,  increased travel abroad, new Chinese consumers entering the marketplace, and 2nd and 3rd generation consumers seeking alternative labels, quality at a price and inward focused, experiential luxury.


My book goes into great detail about how to identify, attract, serve and retain China’s affordable luxury consumers and I hope you check it out for the full story.

U.S. eager to cater to Chinese tourists

prada handbag Nearly two dozen Chinese tourists descended from a white shuttle bus for an afternoon of shopping at one of Southern California's signature upscale malls.

prada bags One tourist conferred with a salesman at South Coast Plaza about a plum-colored, $610 Prada handbag while fellow visitors on the 10-day tour sauntered through the mall, each with their sole child in tow, after a morning of whale watching off the California coast.

prada handbags replica cheap It's a common scene at the popular destination in Orange County, which is doing what it can to keep buses filled with Chinese tourists coming. To make them feel at home, it accepts China's UnionPay card and provides Mandarin-speaking salespeople.

Cheap Prada Handbags Outlet From the mall's shops to tourist spots that offer maps and brochures in Mandarin to hotels serving congee, or rice porridge, for breakfast, businesses in California are trying to entice the growing numbers of Chinese tourists coming to the U.S. to visit the state — and spend money.

prada bags on sale outlet Tourism from China to the U.S. has soared since the countries signed an agreement in 2007 promoting travel. More than 1.8 million Chinese visited last year, a three-fold increase in five years. By 2018, the number is expected to surpass 4 million, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce.

prada handbags sale California, the No. 1 destination, holds particular allure due to its proximity to China, theme parks and sunny weather. Nearly half of all Chinese tourists make a stop in the state.

Haybina Hao, of the National Tour Association, which qualifies U.S.-based tour operators to receive Chinese tour groups under the 2007 agreement, said the tourists are keen to see how a relatively young country like the U.S. developed so quickly and became so prosperous.

"Until they have visited U.S.A., they don't feel they have done their international travel yet," Hao said. "They need to see it and put themselves in the photograph, so they can prove they have done this."

During their travels, they each spend an average of $5,400, 21 percent more than the average for all overseas tourists.

"We see tremendous potential," said Nick Hentschel, vice president of AmericanTours International LLC. He said 15 percent of the company's business now stems from China compared to virtually none a little more than five years ago.

Hentschel said China is the only country where ATI, which originally focused on tourism from Western Europe, Australia and New Zealand, has opened a local office. "But it is cutthroat," he said, adding that some tour operators slashed prices to vie for a place in the Chinese market.

At first, tours from China mostly included older people, some who had saved for years to make the trip. But now more also include middle-aged parents bringing their only child to see America and school groups of teens who tour during summer break.

Many are eager to visit Disneyland and snap photographs at landmarks such as the Hollywood sign and San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge. They enjoy trying American foods — steak is a favorite — and taking advantage of cheaper prices for designer goods.

"It's shopping paradise," said 35-year-old Cici Chen on a stop at Disney California Adventure. Chen said she planned to fill up her suitcases on her California vacation before returning to Shanghai.

In the early years, Disney officials traveled to China to try to explain to the elder generations what the park was about since many weren't as familiar with American stories and movies as are younger visitors today.

"A challenge was many of our Chinese guests were not familiar with the Disney stories," said Nicky Tang, director of Asia Pacific sales for Disney Destinations, of the older generation of tourists. "They grew up not knowing who Snow White is or Cinderella or Peter Pan."

Many Chinese tourists see America from large tour buses, while some travel in smaller groups or rent cars to explore on their own. Others come on trips sponsored by employers as job-related perks, and travel in huge groups.

A 7,000-strong contingent held a two-day meeting in Southern California earlier this year and then fanned out to travel across the region. A group more than twice that size is expected in California next year, said Ed Fuller, president of the Orange County Visitors Association.

Zhang Huan, 42, was among those touring Disney California Adventure with his wife, mother-in-law and 11-year-old son. He said he budgeted $20,000 for the family's first U.S. trip. While the itinerary mostly focused on leisure, Zhang said he was also looking forward to making a stop with his son at a college campus.

He hopes it's not the last visit there.

"If he can study hard, he can go to Stanford," Zhang said.

April 2007 Quarterly Update - good news!

I had my quarterly visit with Dr. Goy, after getting the quarterly PET/CT's done. All is well!

I've updated my blood counts on the background tab, and they're staying steady. Everything looks good, and it was great to see Dr. Goy and everyone there. I even stopped on 5 PE (where I received chemo and excellent treatment), and got to see Mary, the head nurse, and a wonderful person. I got to catch up with her, and hear about the recent goings on. The nurses on an oncology floor are amazing, and I'm very happy to hear they're doing well, it can't be an easy job.

That's it for me, I'm busy with work and family, and still need to drop some of this weight! need more bike riding...

all my best to everyone checking in, and of course to those battling the disease. Steve, Jim, James, Corey, etc - keep up the good work guys, sounds like everyone's doing well.

All our best,
John and Chris

John- I am a newly diagnosed MCL patient of Dr Goy's. Very similar circumstances - tonsils, historically healthy - a little older -52. thank you for your blog - it answered many questions for me about this incredible path I am now going to be on. I have tremendous confidence and took great heart from your success and openness. Dr Goy recommended you to me so I hope you do get this. I would love to communicate further with you if you are willing. Hope you are continuing to do well - Mike

Darla's Blog Picks - Fair food! Are men sexier with beards? Living in a cube and more!

1.  Oklahoma State Fair       

watches By: The site is maintained by many contributors. Credit goes to the staff.




What blog is about – Events, performances, food, people of the Oklahoma State Fair.

omega watches Featured post – Interactive Food Finder


seamaster omega As I look over the menu, I think I gained 10 pounds! I never knew there was so much available to eat. I am going to have to look over this carefully before I go. I am a die hard fan of jalapeno cheese on a stick, chicken on a stick and corn. Believe it or not, I have never stood in line to taste the cinnamon rolls. I hear they are awesome, though. I tried to find a place to get prices for all the concessions, but I haven’t found a price list. As usual, though, make sure you bring the cash. It is not cheap eating. I, personally, will be going with my girls, and my time will consist of food, kiddy rides. If I were to try and do anything else, the kids will magically lose their ability to walk and be too tired to carry on. That is OK, though. I wouldn’t think of walking through the buildings with them; I might lose one of them. Here is a map of the Fair Park so you can print it out and mark down the places you want to eat. Oklahoma State Fair Map Make sure you drink enough water, and be safe. – Darla Lindauer

omegawatches What blog is about – Dedicated to the scientific study of gadgets and gizmos.


Featured post – Living Cube Combines Entertainment Center, Bookshelves, Wardrobe, Walk-In Closet, Loft Bed


OK, so I want this. This is an organization dream! Inside the closet needs some work, but overall I give it a thumbs up. Unless you love the claustrophobic feeling of sleeping in a coffin, I suggest you make some adjustments to fit in a normal 8-foot ceiling room. Ha-ha. The guy who wrote the post is funny; I like the term “tree bones.” Another thing, make sure you put it together where it is going to stay - forever. This is huge. It will not fit through any doors. If you take it apart and put it back together, it will not be as sturdy. My daughter has a raised bed and it has an under part, and my youngest daughter wants me to put a mattress under it to make it her a bed. I might just have to get creative and build something where her bed can fold up against the wall underneath so they don’t lose the play area and access to the bookshelf. Look at that. I did get creative just seeing this. Now, I just need to find someone to do it.  – Darla Lindauer


 


3. THE WEEK


By: Chris Gayomali – Science and technology editor.




What blog is about – Many topics.

Featured post – Are dudes with beards really more attractive?


When I saw this article, I knew this probably wouldn’t have been a topic of conversation if it was not for the show “Duck Dynasty.” I have only seen one episode of it, but I hear it is quite entertaining. I have not gotten into the whole following-a-family-with-a-camera thing, yet. I hear people like the show “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” but I have never seen that one. I wonder how many people would watch a show of me and my girls. We could call it “Keeping up with a child with Asperger’s who has a 3-year-old sister and an OCD mom.” It promises to be filled with a lot of drama and goofiness. Anyway, back to the beard topic. I personally have always liked men with facial hair, but more of a goatee style, and it must be trimmed and kept well. I am not a fan of big bushy beards. I remember an uncle I had growing up used to chase me to hug me and rub his beard on my face, and if you think that sounds creepy, it was. My dad was military, and so he did not have facial hair until he retired. Then he chose to grow a beard, and I thought he looked great with it. Within the last few years, he shaved it off, and he just does not look like my dad. I do know some women who hate any facial hair. So, does the scientific study behind this mean I like alpha males and the women who don’t like hair prefer weaker men? Who knows. I am not sure it really matters . – Darla Lindauer


 


4. Wimp.com


By: I am unable to find a name so credit goes to wimp.com.




What blog is about – “Best videos on the Web. Suitable for all ages.”

Featured post – This is a great dad…


This video is awesome. I think I might have a mild addiction to it. I watched it so many times that I was singing and doing the dance at home with my girls. The message behind it is a good one, and it makes you look back at all the dorky things we do as parents – not just dads - to make our kids happy. There is a show called “Bubble Guppies” on Nick JR that my youngest one watches, and there is a song that comes on twice every show called the “Outside Song.” When it comes on, my daughter yells out, “Our song is on! Hurry!” and I have to stop whatever I am doing and run in and do this crazy dance and sing to it. Sometimes I hate that show, but I hope she remembers this as a good memory. To be honest, it is kind of fun. Here is a link to our song: The Outside Song — I sent this video to my daughter’s dad since he will be taking her to some of the football games she will be cheering at. I told him he needed to do it with her.  – Darla Lindauer


 


5. Fandango


By: The blog has many contributors; Phil Pirrello gets the credit for this one.




What blog is about – Movies

Featured post – The 15 Greatest R-Rated Sci-fi Films


So, I read through this list and watched the trailers, and I must have been out of it for a few years! I guess I wouldn’t remember them even if I had, but I think my movie memory might have been stolen from the year 2009. I did have a baby that year, but not till later in the year, and I do not think a side effect of childbirth is memory loss of sci-fi movies. I have never even heard of â€District 9,” â€Looper” or â€Moon.” How does that happen? I feel like such a sci-fi geek failure right now. Well, I liked the trailers from what I could tell. I guess I have some movies to watch. I am sure this list would change based on the person writing the blog, but I think it is a pretty good one. If not for anything else, it was fun to watch the trailers and take a trip down memory lane. I’ve loved the creepy, the scary, the sci-fi and the odd since I was young, and when I look at these, I wonder how it is that it was more interesting than scary to me at all. My daughter, who is 9, asks to watch sci-fi and I usually tell her, “No,” because I think it will scare her or I am afraid of the language or her seeing things inappropriate. I do let her watch “Total Blackout,” â€Exit,” â€Warehouse 13″ and â€Eureka” with me. They are good at not using bad language. Double standard, maybe, but I am a mom now. – Darla Lindauer
