At Isabel Marant, ‘90s supers Carolyn Murphy and Valletta walked alongside their contemporary counterpart, 21-year-old Gigi Hadid. Older models (over 30, 40, 50 and beyond!) were the shining stars of Fall 2017 fashion month, and we’re here for it.As Paris Fashion Week has come to a close, we’re left to reminisce about Dior’s dreamy sheer dresses, Carven’s rosy pink coats, and Saint Laurent’s slouchy crystal-covered boots. But this fashion month also gave us something new to remember; how those clothes look on women of all ages, as we saw a convergence of older women on the runways (at least, older than the 22-year-old norm), from some of our favorite ’90s supermodels to grown-up ladies who lunch, including Canada’s own Sylvia Mantella.This season we witnessed an epic reunion of models as they walked for Isabel Marant, as well as for Simone Rocha in London, Dolce & Gabbana in Milan and Eckhaus Latta in New York.

APTN National NewsMoments after a U.S. Federal judge dismissed the Stand Rock Sioux Tribe’s request for an injunction to stop construction of the Dakota Access pipeline, the Obama administration did it instead.The move will temporarily block construction of a controversial four-state pipeline.The statement from Justice, the Army and Department of the Interior, said construction next to and under Lake Oahe would stop until the Army completed a review of its decision on permits issued under the National Environmental Policy Act.That review may not be finished by the time the next president is elected in November.The emotional day capped off a week that saw security forces move in with dogs, and an Idle No More flotilla paddle into the Sacred Stone camp where protestors were gathered.APTN Host Cheryl McKenzie takes us through the past few days.
New Delhi – A suicide bomber rammed an explosive-laden motorcycle into a government judiciary van in Peshawar, Pakistan on Wednesday, killing the driver and wounding four others.The suicide blast was one in series of violent attacks aimed at destabilizing Pakistan. On Monday, February 13, a suicide bomber killed 13 people targeting police officers at a protest in Lahore, with more than 50 others wounded. The Tehreek Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for Wednesday’s attack.The Tehreek Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility of Wednesday’s attack, saying in a statement just moments after the attack, “We claim responsibility for the suicide attack on the vehicle of the judiciary. The man who carried out the suicide attack was the brave warrior Sabir Swati.”The group also threatened to carry more of such attacks. The statement further explained that “those who work for the Pakistani Judiciary are an obstacle to the imposition of an Islamic system. These people are the reason for mujahideen [fighters] being jailed or executed.”The attack appeared to be targeting government judicial employees in the Hayatabad area, police officials said.Police immediately sealed off the area and setup a security perimeter. The death toll has been confirmed with the driver of the van reported to be dead and four others injured. The injured have been shifted to a near by emergency medical facility.“We have found body parts of the bomber as well as his motorcycle, which hit the van,” said the investigating officer in a report shared with media.Muhammad Tahir, Peshawar’s police chief, said, “The initial analysis shows that at least 15kg of explosives were used in this attack.“In anticipation of such attacks, precautionary security measures had been taken beforehand as a senior opposition leader Imran Khan was supposed to visit a medical facility nearby the site of explosion. There was a heavy deployment of police and a squad of bomb disposal unit was active hours earlier.The attack came hours after a suicide bombing at a government office in the nearby Mohmand tribal area in which three policemen and two civilians were killed.
BEIJING — The Latest on trade talks between the U.S. and China (all times local):1:50 p.m.The Shanghai Composite index has jumped 5.5 per cent after President Donald Trump announced he was extending a deadline for escalating tariffs on Chinese imports.The benchmark was trading at its highest level in about 8 months on the news that the truce in a trade war between the world’s two biggest economies would persist as the two sides talk out their differences.Other markets in the region also rose, but by smaller margins. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index added 0.5 per cent while Tokyo’s Nikkei 225 also climbed 0.5 per cent.___2:20 p.m.President Donald Trump’s decision to extend a deadline to escalate tariffs on Chinese imports has raised cautious optimism in China and boosted share prices across Asia.The Shanghai Composite index jumped 4.9 per cent on Monday to its highest level since June 2018 after Trump said “substantial progress” was made in weekend talks between the two countries regarding their dispute over China’s technology policies.Trump said, “I will be delaying the U.S. increase in tariffs now scheduled for March 1.” He also said that if negotiations progress, he will meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping at his Florida resort to finalize an agreement.The vice-president of the U.S.-China Business Council, Jake Parker, said Trump’s announcement was a “positive signal.”Others in Beijing had mixed feelings, but welcomed the news.The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Walmart is teaming up with Kidbox, the 3-year-old online styling service for children, to offer its customers an exclusive, curated style box.Starting Tuesday, Walmart customers will get access to more than 120 premium children’s brands. The style box will include about five fashion items for $48, about 50% off the suggested retail price of the bundled items. Walmart customers complete a short style quiz for their child on Walmart.com Kidbox styles tailor each child’s style preferences, season and where the child lives.The partnership is the latest by Walmart to establish itself as a fashion destination and better play in the increasingly crowded subscription arena.

To mark the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, guest speakers will discuss intersectional approaches to police violence this Thursday at Brock.To commemorate the massacre of 14 women at Montréal’s École Polytechnique on Dec. 6, 1989, and to continue the conversation around violence against women and marginalized groups, several Brock departments and organizations will jointly host an event on Thursday, Dec. 6 from noon to 2 p.m. in South Block 203.“We believe the University community has much to learn from activist movements who are working to promote institutional accountability,” says Margot Francis, Associate Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies.“The panel marks an attempt to deepen our understanding of how institutions, like the police, can be implicated in gendered and racial violence,” she says.The event will be moderated by Leela MadhavaRau, Director of the University’s Office of Human Rights and Equity, and will feature three speakers:OmiSoore Dryden, Visiting Professor at Ryerson University, will address anti-black racism as well as policing and the negative impact on the black community.Haran Vijayanathan, Executive Director of Alliance for South Asian AIDS Prevention, will speak about the McArthur Murders and advocating against official indifferences to institutional change.Robyn Bourgeois, Assistant Professor with Brock’s Centre for Women’s and Gender Studies, will address the colonial policing of Indigenous people.All are welcome. Lunch will be provided. No RSVP is required.The event is co-sponsored by Brock University’s Centre for Women’s and Gender Studies, Human Rights and Equity Office, Tecumseh Centre for Indigenous Research and Education, Student Justice Centre, as well as Ontario Public Interest Research Group (OPIRG), Brock University Students’ Union (BUSU), Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF), Brock University Faculty Association (BUFA) and Brock University Graduate Students’ Association (GSA).

One obvious advantage Verizon has over AT&T when it comes to the iPhone 4 is that you can tether up to five different devices to the Verizon iPhone’s 3G connection over WiFi, when AT&T only offers one. For road warriors, that’s a big perk to going with Verizon instead of with AT&T: you can drive an entire mobile office with just one Verizon device. Another benefit is that AT&T tethering service only works via Bluetooth or USB, not WiFi.The magic app that is allowing Verizon to offer tethering for up to five devices compared to AT&T’s one is the Personal Hotspot app, and it doesn’t look like that’s a Verizon exclusive. Instead, it is actually a native component of iOS version 4.2.5 (the default OS build Verizon’s iPhones are running). It seems likely, then, that as soon as the Verizon iPhone comes out, Apple will pump an official iOS update for all devices down the pipeline, bringing the Hotspot app to all devices, including iPads, with iOS 4.3…. and, in fact, that’s just what BGR is reporting this morning:According to our source, the personal hotspot feature that debuted on the Verizon iPhone yesterday will, in fact, be making its way to all iPhones in iOS 4.3. We’re sure there will need to be carrier support for this feature, and for AT&T users it is entirely possible we might not see this right away. For those of you with more lenient carriers, however, we are sure you will be pleased to learn that you’ll be able to connect up to five devices over Wi-Fi to the iPhone’s cellular data connection. We are told the OS version will be 8F5148b, the baseband will be 04.08.00, and technical acceptance is planned for March. We have some screenshots to hold you over, though! If you’ve ever wanted to use your iPhone as a WiFi hub for your mobile office, then, but are happy with your service with AT&T, hold tight: you shouldn’t have to wait longer than March.Read more at Boy Genius Report

Feb 12th 2018, 7:05 AM South African chief Jacob Zuma looks to finally be on the way out of office after nine years ANC chiefs have met to finalise Zuma’s exit in the fallout from corruption charges being laid against him. It brings hope that there is a new venture we are getting into. But we have to respect (Zuma) as a former president of the ANC. It is important not to disrupt the country or bring violence into the country.Zuma’s presidency has been marred by corruption scandals, slow economic growth and record unemployment that have fuelled public anger.The stalemate over his departure has left Africa’s most developed economy in limbo, with a series of public events cancelled last week including Thursday’s State of the Nation address to parliament.Opposition parties last week had threatened a “national shutdown” in response to Zuma’s refusal to resign – although it was unclear if the action would go ahead.Dispute over exit deal? Zuma’s hold over the ANC was shaken in December when his chosen successor – his former wife Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma – narrowly lost out to Ramaphosa in a vote to be the new party leader.Yesterday’s rally was part of ANC celebrations marking 100 years since late leader Nelson Mandela’s birth – as well as efforts by Ramaphosa to try to revive the party’s tainted reputation ahead of next year’s general election.“We have arrived at a moment in the history of our country where we can relive that moment when Nelson Mandela was released… we have a new mood right across the country, we can capture that mood and move forward,” said Ramaphosa. Protests against Zuma’s continued rule last Monday, 5 February, in Johannesburg Source: Themba Hadebe/PA ImagesHe was speaking to mark the 28th anniversary of the speech Mandela gave in the same location after being released from prison.It is understood that a key sticking point in the negotiations is the potentially ruinous legal fees Zuma is facing from prolonged court battles against multiple criminal cases.He is also reportedly seeking legal protection for his family and other associates who have been involved in controversial deals.“Even if the ANC meeting decides Zuma needs to step down, he can still refuse because they have no legal authority,” Mcebisi Ndletyana, politics professor at the University of Johannesburg, told AFP.He is not willing to step down voluntarily. They need to close this thing early this week.Opposition parties are calling for a parliamentary vote of no-confidence within days.Decision time?The ANC has insisted there will be no delay to the budget, which is due on 21 February.Zuma has not spoken publicly since being asked to resign by senior ANC officials on 4 February.In 2008, the party pushed out then-president Thabo Mbeki over allegations of abuse of power.Under Zuma, the ANC won less than 54% of the vote in local elections in 2016.That was its worst electoral performance since coming to power with Mandela at the helm in 1994.© – AFP, 2018Read: Two police officers shot dead responding to ‘domestic situation’ at home in OhioRead: Three dead after tour helicopter crashes in the Grand Canyon
Claudio Ranieri revealed Jose Mourinho was the first manager to welcome him “home” as Fulham prepare to take on Manchester UnitedThe 67-year-old was surprisingly named the new Fulham coach last month following Slavisa Jokanovic’s dismissal after a poor start on their return to the Premier League.Ranieri has since managed one win in his three games in charge with Fulham still bottom of the league table.The Italian will be hoping to extend United’s winless run in the league to five matches ahead of Saturday’s trip to Old Trafford.But, despite having been criticised by Mourinho in the past, Ranieri revealed the good relationship he has with the Portuguese – who showed his support for him when he was sacked from Leicester City by wearing his initials, CR, in a show of solidarity.“He was the first who sent me a message to say welcome back. He is a very friendly friend,” said Ranieri, according to the Telegraph.“He told me, ‘Welcome back, all the best’. We speak about everything.“It was a text message. Sometimes we speak. He’s a fantastic man.“I know him for a long time, when he came to Chelsea and in Italy, and he was very polite with me.Pochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“He’s a great man, coach, manager and also the football is important.“I enjoy very much (being back in the Premier League), I’ve come back home.”The former Chelsea boss concedes that Fulham will need to be perfect against United, regardless of their struggles.“Manchester are one of the best teams in the Premier League and also in the Champions League,” added Ranieri.“It’s a fantastic team and stadium and we want to make a point. We know it’s hard, but nothing is impossible.“Manchester are getting better, for us it will be difficult. We must make a perfect performance.“Every manager would like to win, the desire is to win, but we have a great respect for Manchester.“Every match we improve, but it’s not easy because when you stay at the bottom of the table, it’s not so (easy to be) confident 100 per cent.“I gave my confidence to my players, but if you have two or three good results the confidence of the team grows immediately and I am confident we will do this.”
People hold placards while waiting for Christian Democratic Union CDU party leader and German Chancellor Angela Merkel to react on first exit polls in the German general election (Bundestagswahl) in Berlin, Germany, September 24, 2017. Photo: ReutersChancellor Angela Merkel won a fourth term in office on Sunday but will have to build an uneasy coalition to form a German government after her conservatives haemorrhaged support in the face of a surge by the far-right.The anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD) stunned the establishment by winning 13.1 percent of the vote, projected results showed, a result that will bring a far-right party into parliament for the first time in more than half a century.Merkel’s conservative bloc emerged as the largest parliamentary party but, with just 33.2 percent of the vote, saw its support slump to the lowest since 1949 – the first time national elections were held in post-war Germany.Her main Social Democrat rivals also received their worst result since the 1940s-just 20.8 percent-after nearly half of voters repudiated the two parties that have dominated Germany since World War Two.With parliament now fragmented, Merkel appears likely to cobble together a tricky three-way coalition with a pro-business group and the Greens.Merkel said the success of the far right was a test for Germans. It was important to listen to the concerns of their voters and win them back.“Of course we had hoped for a slightly better result. But we mustn’t forget that we have just completed an extraordinarily challenging legislative period, so I am happy that we reached the strategic goals of our election campaign,” Merkel said.“We are the strongest party, we have the mandate to build the next government – and there cannot be a coalition government built against us,” Merkel added.The election was fought on the tense backdrop of surging support for far left and far right parties across Europe.Germany in particular is coping with the arrival of more than 1 million refugees and other new migrants, with tension with Russia since Moscow’s incursions into Ukraine, and with doubt about Europe’s future since Britain voted to quit the EU.After shock election results last year, from the Brexit vote to the election of U.S. President Donald Trump, leaders of Europe’s establishment have looked to Merkel to rally the liberal Western order.But after acting as an anchor of stability in Europe and beyond, she now faces an unstable situation at home as she must now form a coalition, an arduous process that could take months.Immediately after the release of exit polls, the deputy party leader of the Social Democrats (SPD), junior partners in a “grand coalition” with Merkel’s conservatives for the last four years, said her party would now go into opposition.“For us, the grand coalition ends today,” Manuela Schwesig told ZDF broadcaster. “For us it’s clear that we’ll go into opposition as demanded by the voter.”Without the SPD, Merkel’s only straightforward path to a majority in parliament would be a three-way tie-up with the liberal Free Democrats (FDP) and the Greens, known as a “Jamaica” coalition because the black, yellow and green colours of the three parties match the Jamaican flag.Such an arrangement is untested at the national level in Germany and widely seen as inherently unstable. Both the FDP and the Greens have played down the prospect of a three-way coalition, but neither won enough seats on Sunday to give Merkel a majority on its own.NEW ERAWhatever the make-up of her coalition, Merkel, 63, faces four years of government in a fragmented parliament after the return of the FDP – unrepresented at national level for the last four years – and the arrival of the AfD.Founded in 2013 by an anti-euro group of academics, the AfD has surged as an anti-immigrant group in the wake of Merkel’s 2015 decision to leave German borders open to over 1 million migrants, most of them fleeing war in the Middle East.The party’s entry into the national parliament heralds the beginning of a new era in German politics that will see more robust debate and a departure from the steady, consensus-based approach that has marked the post-war period.The other parties elected to the Bundestag all refuse to work with the AfD, which says it will press for Merkel to be “severely punished” for opening the door to refugees and migrants.After the AfD hurt her conservatives in regional elections last year, Merkel, a pastor’s daughter who grew up in Communist East Germany, wondered if she should run for re-election.But with the migrant issue under control this year, she threw herself into a punishing campaign schedule.Despite losing support, Merkel, Europe’s longest serving leader, will join the late Helmut Kohl, her mentor who reunified Germany, and Konrad Adenauer, who led Germany’s rebirth after World War Two, as the only post-war chancellors to win four national elections.

Chrome: let downloads overwrite existing files by Martin Brinkmann on January 06, 2017 in Google Chrome – Last Update: May 22, 2018 – 5 commentsDownloads Overwrite Already Existing Files is an extension for the Google Chrome web browser that changes Chrome’s handling of duplicate file downloads.Whenever you download a file in Chrome, it is saved automatically to the default download folder. While you can change the behavior in the Chrome settings, most Chrome users have not done so probably.Tip: To get a prompt whenever you download a file, or change the download location in Chrome, do the following: Load chrome://settings/ in the browser’s address bar. Select show advanced settings at the bottom of the page, and scroll down until you find the downloads section. There you can check “ask where to save each file before downloading” to get download prompts in Chrome, and change the default download folder to another location as well.Chrome: let downloads overwrite existing filesAnother issue that you may run into from time to time is that Chrome will change the name of downloaded files if a file of the same name exists already in the download folder.While that is wanted at times, think of two files that have the same name but are different files, it may not be wanted at other times.It happens for instance when you hit the download button twice, or if the page initiates a download automatically.While Chrome prevents pages from pushing multiple downloads to your system, it won’t prevent that if you initiate the downloads manually, or if the downloads are not executed in a short period of time.The Chrome extension Downloads Overwrite Already Existing Files prevents duplicate file downloads in Chrome by overwriting files if they exist in the selected download folder. So, instead of ending up with duplicate files ending with (1), (2) and so on, you end up with a single file.The extension will overwrite files with identical names even if the content is not identical. This makes it a rather specialized extension, one that is probably only of use to users who experience issues regularly with duplicate downloads.Another option that you have is to enable download prompts in Chrome. This gives you flexibility when it comes to duplicate files.Now You: How do you handle duplicate file downloads?Summary12345 Author Rating3 based on 2 votes Software Name Downloads Overwrite Already Existing FilesSoftware Category BrowserLanding Page https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/downloads-overwrite-alrea/lddjgfpjnifpeondafidennlcfagekbp Advertisement

ART’s expansion of AccuBoost technology through its global partnership with Nucletron aims to reduce the barriers to adoption of brachytherapy for cancer centers previously deterred by the initial start-up costs usually associated with implementing a breast brachytherapy program. Clinical reports indicate that patients with early stage breast cancer have the best outcomes when the breast conserving lumpectomy procedure is combined with a full course of whole breast irradiation and partial breast boost dose. ART’s AccuBoost combines a mammography procedure for real-time image guidance to target the boost dose, and dose delivery by Nucletron’s microSelectron family of HDR afterloaders.

Dudouit—Contact Press Images1 of 14portfolioBlood and Human Trafficking in the Dustbowl of LibyaDan StewartSep 17 2015In the southwestern corner of Libya deep in the arid hinterland of the Sahara desert there is a city where the state’s slow motion collapse has precipitated a deadly tribal conflict The city is named Ubari in the southern district known as the Fezzan and the battle between the Touareg and Tubu tribes encompasses not just the failure of Libya but also the challenges facing North Africa as unrest in Nigeria Mali and Niger drive streams of migrants north towards EuropeRelatedportfolioThe Small Town Police Force Behind the Viral Photo of an OverdoseportfolioThe Small Town Police Force Behind the Viral Photo of an OverdoseSwiss photojournalist Philippe Dudouit spent time in Ubari earlier this year as the war worsened documenting the conflict as part of The Dynamics of Dust a project on the people of the Sahara that he has been working on since 2008 Dudouit whose work appears in the current international edition of TIME explains the war in Ubari as a “kind of a football game” between two rival tribes that are being manipulated by Libya’s rival governments in the north — Dignity the UN-recognized government based in Tobruk and Libya Dawn the coalition of Islamist militia headquartered in the capital city of Tripoli “The two biggest tribes in the Fezzan are fighting each other for chaotic reasons that even they don’t know” he saysTo understand the conflict it’s necessary to go back to the days when Libya was ruled by Muammar Gaddafi The Fezzan was then as it is now a sparsely populated desert region where the main economy consists of smuggling contraband across Libya’s porous borders with Algeria Chad and Niger Everything from cigarettes to small arms traveled northwards to Libya while subsidized food and fuel went south to be sold for a markup Human cargo too was trafficked across the border migrants fleeing unrest in west AfricaThe Tubu tribesmen helped control the flow of traffic across the southern border with Niger and Chad from its capital Murzuq while the Touareg controlled border regions with Algeria and a small slice of the Niger border from the Touareg capital of Ubari Neither was particularly loyal to Gaddafi before he was deposed; although the dictator invested in infrastructure in Ubari to help upkeep of its oil gas and water industries he was content to keep the tribespeople poor and uneducatedAfter Gaddafi was deposed in 2011 the region descended further into lawlessness The regime’s few border guards went north to fight allowing smuggling to boom into a $38 billion economy The rival tribes began an increasingly violent struggle that in September 2014 blossomed into armed conflict on the streets of Ubari The Tubu say they are helping fight Islamic extremism; the Touareg claim they are simply trying to protect their homes and communities But more than that it’s a “fight for territory” Dudouit says “not just for smuggling access but also for a city that bridges two natural resources gas and water”The potential for control of these valuable resources was enough to get Libya’s rival governments involved; the Tubu have received backing from Dignity while Libya Dawn has helped arm some Touareg groups But Dudouit says that while the north’s involvement has helped fuel the conflict the lines of support are far from clear “The tribal dynamics are complicated” he says “Some of the Touaregs are still supported by the government in Tobruk while others are supported by Tripoli And the Tubus are only following the Tubus… they really want to be accepted as themselves”Photographer Philippe Dudouit working in Libya 2015Soldiers from the Tuareg tribe on patrol in Ubari Hot

Donald Trump has had no shortage of critics for his Twitter output in recent years but bafflement appears to have reached new levels following his latest tweetLast night Trump – famously a climate change skeptic – cast doubt on global warming as he noted that the East of the US is likely to face its coldest New Years Eve on recordIn the tweet he also accused other countries of paying less to tackle the problem than the US would have done to the tune of trillions of dollarsIn the East it could be the COLDEST New Years Eve on record Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country but not other countries was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against Bundle up- Donald J Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 29 2017 "In the East it could be the COLDEST New Years Eve on record" Trump tweeted from his official account "Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country but not other countries was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against Bundle up"The President is notoriously skeptical of climate change having claimed in 2012 that the widely-accepted phenomenon is a hoax created by the Chinese to make US business noncompetitiveThis past June Trump noted his intention to withdraw the US from the Paris agreement on mitigating climate change saying that the accord would undermine (the US) economy and puts (the US) at a permanent disadvantageNow Twitter users have suggested this latest tweet implies a fundamental misunderstanding of climate changeSome inevitably responded that colder weather was always going to happen by dint of it being winter in the US right nowThis may be the dumbest thing that you have tweeted in 2017 And that is saying something- Simon Hedlin (@simonhedlin)
