Rob And she uses the word signifies, which means giving the meaning of something. The sari obviously has an emotional attachment for her.  

Luckily, we keep getting the exemptions, like noting that Europeans actually ARE into soccer. Well, we call it football. Also there should be an exemption about the sportswear. Europeans dress up after work, if they are going somewhere, Americans dress down. This means you are likely to meet a European person on the way to work in his fleece jacket, only to meet him out on town in an elegant coat and some snappy shoes after work. There should be warning for American men dating European women: do not get into your casual wear if you have invited her out to dinner! She ll come dressed to kill and if you re not dressed for it, she ll just leave your carcass in the gutter.

You can place orders as usual during this period, and they will be dispatched after Feb 23rd. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Exactly. As an American living in the UK for the sixth straight year, I was thinking exactly this, Tessa!

My electric bill is $480 every 90 days. Yes, using the dryer is expensive so we don t use it much. We use it for the sock/jocks and big towls, everything else is line-dried inside. (Clothes-munching dog outside.)

Rob Yes. But the meaning of clothes goes far deeper than what you should or shouldn't wear in the workplace, Will. It can really influence what people think of us. Now, rightly or wrongly, they can make snap judgements - or quick decisions - about us.

Thank you for sharing the great information! I will definitely be visiting this lens from time to time for sewing patterns!  

Yup, I am with Chris. Our HOA specifically bans hanging laundry, even in the backyard where it can t be seen! Besides, I also don t like the stiffness of line-dried clothing, and it would be my luck that I would forget it outside and some animal would do something horrible to it.

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.

A little TLC helps our clothes look good and last longer - from finding time to 'have-a-go' at getting out a stain to following the washing instructions on the label.

Ageing, he thought, comes about because this developmental programme, this constant change, never turns off. From birth until puberty, change is crucial: we need it to grow and mature. After we ve matured, however, our adult bodies don t need change, but rather maintenance. If you ve built the perfect house, you would want to stop adding bricks at a certain point, Walker says. When you ve built a perfect body, you d want to stop screwing around with it. But that s not how evolution works. Because natural selection cannot influence traits that show up after we have passed on our genes, we never evolved a stop switch for development, Walker says. So we keep adding bricks to the house. At first this doesn t cause much damage a sagging roof here, a broken window there. But eventually the foundation can t sustain the additions, and the house topples. This, Walker says, is ageing.

I agree with Tina. I would think that line drying vs. electric drying would not be enough to cause World War III on Jillee s very eye opening post. It s true that it saves a lot of money when you line dry clothing, but it is not always possible. Please think about things before you type/say them.

De Magalhaes and Gladyshev are under no illusions about the arduous journey but they remain hopeful. History is full of claims by experts that certain advances are impossible, only to be proven wrong soon after, says de Magalhaes. Consider the state of medicine just 120 years ago, when some of today s bowhead whales were still in their infancy. Back then life-threatening infections were just a fact of life. Today, antibiotics are taken for granted as the most basic healthcare.

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.

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!!

You see a lot of people here in the Denver/Boulder area wearing this type of clothing including myself but a lot of people out here actually do outdoor activities not just talk about it.

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!
