There was definitly a certain irony about reading that blog post yesterday, and my interest to bring it here. When I think of these non-geology types that dress this way I am forced to think of places like Boulder and Bozeman, for example.

Irish women find flattery abhorrent, writes Emma Comerford, who says this is why they are advised against dating French men.

I have help with laundry and had new items ruined also. Your pants were cotton knit though. What about clothing made from cotton that is not stretchy? I have a few nice white blouses that shrunk.

Hey! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I came to check it out. I m definitely loving the information.  

We elected to go for sunset because we are staying in Kapalua and did not want to get up at 2am for sunrise. We spent the day visiting other local attractions and headed up about 3pm. It was very cloudy and rainy going up and we had our doubts about if it was worth the trip. We had downloaded the Gypsy App for Haleakala which is a guided audio tour and it reassured us that the weather would be different at the top and it was! Sunny and clear, although the temp went from 80 down to 63 degrees at the top. The Visitors Center at the base is under construction and the one at the top is open from 10-3:30. There are restrooms at the summit. There are many switch backs and driving can be nerve racking but definitely worth the views.

I love this blog clander . I still want to meet you. I am flying to LAX on March 30 for a four nights of eating well and museums with my daughter and her film maker bf, then dash to Mammoth to ski a couple days than return to Bangor Maine airport which is 150 miles south of our island.

There are those who combine as well. I see the north face fleece vest over a lot of business casual here in SF and the silicon valley. I think they give you one when you move to the peninsula.

In the great city where he lived, life was always gay. Everyday many strangers came to town, and among them one day came twoswindlers. They let it be known they were weavers, and they saidthey could weave the most magnificent fabrics imaginable. Notonly were their colors and patterns uncommonly fine, but clothesmade of this cloth had a wonderful way of becoming invisible toanyone who was unfit for his office, or who was unusuallystupid.

Keeping only the clothes that give me a spark of joy has allowed me to relinquish items that I've been keeping out of one kind of guilt or another —that I bought something and never really wore it, because someone else gave it to me, or because it's wasteful to get rid of something that's perfectly 'good.'  

A lot of North Face stuff is made in Sri Lanka that has one of the worst human rights records on the planet.

They're attracting all the investor interest because each company is trying to fill a void left by the big online retail incumbents. Though Amazon is deeply entrenched in almost every product category in e-commerce, and eBay rules resale, many consider fashion their most vulnerable segment, whether new or used. Amazon and eBay thrive as near-boundless vending machines, where customers search for anything and everything. Fashion is built on meticulous curation.

Style has now expanded from special occasion to everyday life. You no longer have to don oversized tees and sweatpants for the gym. You can look as fabulous as you feel with this eclectic collection for active lifestyles. The tanks and leggings feature complementary tones to mix and match for an array of wardrobe options. From jogging at the park to tackling difficult yoga poses, the stretch fabric slenderizes your figure by holding everything in place while effortlessly moving with your body. Trying to complete errands in between your workouts? Don’t worry about changing in and out of your exercise gear. These beautiful pieces can be worn with confidence in your everyday world. Don’t forget about the cool accessories such as headphones, running shoes, and water bottles to help keep you focused on your exercise goals.

That s because there are too many dipshits on the roads who would not see us otherwise. Of course, there is always the assclown who almost kills me, then tells me: I didn t see you. I usually reply that they should look past their nose.

A lawyer representing Thrift Land USA of Yonkers, and its owner Carl Vella, refused to comment to CNNMoney.  

Even once they had collected the material, the team still faced the extraordinary task of building the genetic sequence. Given the enormous volume of data, the task was akin to shredding hundreds of thousands of copies of Moby Dick and then pasting the individual sentences back together into a meaningful order.

The webbing clothes moth is the most common fabric moth. The adult is gold with reddish-golden hairs on the top of its head. A row of golden hairs fringes its wings, which have a span of about 1/2 inch. Because these moths are weak flyers that aren't attracted to lights, you'll usually find them close to the infested items, such as in a dark area of the closet.

What about non-white people who wear technical clothing eh? I m 1/2 yellow and 1/2 white and I wear a ridiculous amount of technical clothing. Although I always want to go camping, I m not so stupid as to think my buddy s going to call an impromptu session of hiking and paddling. I for one wear technical clothing because I m a paranoid bastard. When those zombies come, you want to be hunkered down in a makeshift shanty dressed in cotton, that retains water and chills you when the temperature drops? I think I ll stick with my technical clothing. I may look like a douche, but damn yo, how many hipsters look like douches and are just gonna be eaten by zombies because they can t run in their drainpipe jeans? Sheeit yo, it ain t just white people wearing clothing that works, that in itself is degrading to people of other shades. What, because I m 1/2 Chinese I can t be (paranoia-fuelled) practical? C mon!!

In a StoryCorps animation, Patrick Haggerty remembers the remarkable advice he got from his dairy farmer dad.  

If you know how to sew you can make your own clothes and do clothing alterations. With the availability of inexpensive clothes and the cost of fabric, you may not save a lot of money by sewing trousers, for example. The big advantage to sewing your own clothes is that you can let your creativity go wild, creating your own styles and fabric combinations. A learn-to-sew DVD can teach you how to make clothing that fits great and shows your individuality.dresses for less

Great site. I know there was a post on dogs, but you just have to do one on horses too. And how people dress up for the Kentucky Derby, and love Secretariat/Barbaro/whatever more than breathing air. I ve never figured this one out. And also, all the readers/posters here who STILL have no idea what SATIRE is, or continually suggest the white people like blogs post, or think this is racist, or think that it s actually talking about every person with white skin in the entire world, do us a favor and just close the web browser before hitting Submit Comment.

Rob Well, you know your saris well because that is the right answer. Well done! Now, before we go, it's time to remind ourselves of some of the vocabulary that we've heard today. Will.

Advice from an old, crusty editor who doesn’t smoke cigars (anymore)

Aimed at people newish newish to the business and the people who have to manage them, from someone who’s been an online news manager for 16 years and now runs Reuters.com.

Key insights include: You’re smarter than everyone else in the newsroom. But that’s your deepest secret. Don’t tell anyone. 

Find the grizzled old hand who can teach you more with one withering glance than all your professors in J-School.

Never mention any of your professors in J-School.

Be bored and then do something about it. 

Let’s talk about something deeply personal for a minute. Are you ok? I mean seriously, are you really ok? Depression, anxiety - they’re incredibly common in the newsroom. Here’s some of what you need to consider in dealing with it in yourself and others.

Is it a raccoon-cat or a cat-raccoon? And what to do about it

John Oliver outlined the problem without proposing any solutions.  Here are six ideas.

Why we need solutions journalism

If we think of the media as a feedback mechanism for society then — like any feedback mechanism — it can encourage or inhibit all sorts of things. Depending on what gets highlighted and what gets overlooked — and how stories are framed — the media can accelerate social progress or do just the opposite. The question is: What kind of feedback is likely to enhance or diminish society’s capacity to solve problems?

One of the core assumptions in journalism is that the press helps society to self-correct largely by acting as a watchdog. Much of the time, reporters spotlight problems – i.e., provide negative feedback – with the goal of spurring reforms. We’re increasingly realizing that is incomplete. We need to promote health, not just attack disease. To do that for society, it’s not enough to know what’s broken; people need to know how problems could be, or are being, fixed.

Media: Blended

Students today are producing newscasts, not for television, but the web. These newscasts take snatches of inspiration from the evening news of old, shows from today such as Vice, video podcasts, and comedy news shows and blend them into something new, original and far more targeted to their audiences. On the University of Nevada, Reno campus, students are producing Wolf Pack What, a You Tube program with no anchor desks, where news packages are just as likely to introduce absurdist elements as they are to be straightforward. This is reflective of the mindset of the next generation of journalism professionals, who draw from the best media of today and remix it into what will become the media of tomorrow. As traditional news fades, the latest generation of journalists is ripping up the rule book in this new digital age, making news not just informative, but funny and personal.

Leave no “@Mention” behind

Relationships are great, but one-sided relationships suck - even on social media. In fact, especially on social media. Many of us journalists never respond to or acknowledge his/her readers on social media when they reach out. Big mistake. Everyone talks about engagement, but how many of us actually engage? Give me five minutes to convince you why no “@mention” should go unnoticed.

Our workflow is generally horrible

Henry Ford did not build a better car. In fact, the Model T came with tools for when it broke. He built a better way to make a car. 

We need to do that with our industry.

We need to engineer tools that make publishing every type of content simple. We need to devise workflows that are straightforward, linear and logical. (gasp!) We also need processes that put our digital platforms, not our legacy products, first.

This is not complicated. In fact, what’s needed is simplification. Some suggestions. And some commiserations for what all we have endured.

Journalism is a strategy, not an industry

Amid all our enthusiasm about defending and improving information gathering and independent reporting in the modern web and data-backed era, we have misunderstood the implications of the great unbundling of great news media organizations. 

Journalism is a strategy to make communities better that needs to be spread, not a cohesive industry that needs protecting. The better we understand this, the easier it is to communicate why organizations with journalism DNA have more reason to share and support each other than compete. 

I’m Christopher Wink (Hi!), the cofounder of 25-person community news publisher Technically Media, host of the annual Barcamp News Innovation and the longtime organizer of ONA Local’s Philadelphia chapter. I’d love five minutes to share with you why I think this is such an important concept for our work.

From the Frontlines of Libya to the Trenches of Tech

In 30 years of broadcast reporting for ABC, CBS and CBC TV News the biggest pain in my daily life has been transcription. Like every other reporter I’ve simply accepted that we have to do it ourselves - or if we are lucky someone will do it for us. What I never imagined was that I would join a brilliant team of developers to revolutionize the routine of journalists around the world. I am totally unqualified to be a CEO and inventor, but having lived the pain and the problem of transcription I have a pretty good idea of what an automated solution needs to look like. It’s been a two-year odyssey and together we’ve done it. Our software is being used by NPR, the Washington Post, the BBC and others. We use artificial intelligence to create incredibly accurate transcripts in minutes that you can search, verify and share. I’d never have believed that Career 2.0 would find me in this role, I loved reporting. But creating Trint (transcription+interview) has been a huge challenge and real thrill. And it’s just beginning. We opened to the world in early September. There is a life after reporting!
