clothes then let the store know. They will most likely know
what direction to steer you in.

Protect Your Mobile Phone Pictures and Videos

As more and more of us become owners of the latest camera phones and are able to capture information at a touch of a button, a new trend is being set in the world of journalism.
To set the scene, let’s imagine you are walking down the road when you spot a couple of A-List celebrities getting off the back of their car. You get your cam phone out of your pocket and start to snap your encounter so that you can share this moment with your friends, when out of no where a man begins an argument with the celebrities which quickly scales to a full-blown fight.
By the time the press are informed of the attack, the event is all but over, leaving journalists with the difficult task of having to collect information from eye witnesses at the scene and in some cases with few or no images to support the report.
Your pictures which are now a ‘first-at-the-scene’ account of the event, are collected by the journalist, often for little or no compensation, and used to produce an exclusive report. The images are then sold at exuberant fees to other members of the media industry, increasing their profits even further.
Scoopt, a new service designed to help and protect the information you capture on your phone or your digital camera has recently been launched and can be found at www.scoopt.com. Scoopt will act as an agency between you and a wide network of media contacts, ensuring that as well as being recognised for your material, you are also financially compensated.

Unusual Baby Names – A Popular Trend

Unusual Baby Names – A Popular Trend

Parents today seem to be favoring unusual baby names. At one point in history, over half of the children born were given popular names. No more. Today’s trend is to break with the traditional. Your picking a name because you love it, not because of what everybody else thinks of it.
A name is central to a child’s earliest sense of identity. It’s often the first word he or she learns to read and write. Naming trends of today are defined by celebrities, literary classics, and even name brands. Look no further than your favorite book, car, or brand for baby name ideas. Names like "Armani", "Del Monte", "Infiniti", "Celica", "Chevy", and "Lexus" are increasing in popularity.
So, how do you go about finding an unusual baby name? Believe it or not, celebrities are a great source of unusual baby names. There has recently been a major trend amongst celebrities choosing unusual names for their children. Julia Roberts named her twins Hazel and Phinnaeus. Demi Moore and Bruce Willis are the parents of Rumer Glenn, Scout LaRue and Tallulah Belle. Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay singer Chris Martin recently named their child Apple. Sylvester Stallone has given his children the names Sage Moonblood and Sistine Rose. Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette are the proud parents of Coco and John Travolta and Kelly Preston named their boy Jett.
While you may not want to be quite this unusual, a creative name gives your child a unique identity and distinguishes them from all the James, John’s, and Jacob’s.
You can also get some great baby naming ideas from other countries. In Ireland, some of the most popular baby names are Cian, Dylan, and Conor. Germany likes the names Felix and Lucas while Norway prefers Andrian, Sander, and Tobias.
You could even make up your own baby names! Here are some tips on how to come up with original names.
Create a name from two names. You can combine two names that you really like. If you really like Sarah and Beth, you could combine them to form Sarah-Beth. If you like David and Daniel, you could form Daviel.
You could also start spelling names backward to come up with some unique combinations.
Another common technique that is being used is giving a traditional name a different spelling. So David might turn into Dayvid or Sierra could be Cyera.
You might also want to consider naming your child after cities, street names, or landmarks. Montanna, Everest, Shea, Austin, and Dakota all make for great baby names.
Whether you choose a name that expresses family loyalty and tradition or your own flare and originality, it is sure to be an exciting milestone. Take some time to choose a name that your child will enjoy for a lifetime. A name is forever.

What’s the deal with celebrities? Wait a minute! I’ll give you the spiel

What’s the deal with celebrities? Wait a minute! I’ll give you the spiel

Much of our grooming comes down to what we’re willing to spend. This applies to time and money. How much effort are you willing to devote to making yourself look nice each day? The truth is you can spend as much as you’re able to. The prices go up and up. Ever heard of the Golden Gate Spa? This is a fancy one. But, when it comes to celebrity skin care and pampering, the stars go all out. Personally I can only take this to a basic level. Since I’m a man it consists of fine shaving products, some hair wax, and a moisturizer from Jack Black. How’s that for celebrity skin care? Uh, it’s probably not up to par. I watched a special VH1 program on celebrity skin care and pampering, and it almost made me hurl. J Lo is one of the most ridiculous. She apparently purchases some sort of special moisturizer that’s produced according to the lunar cycle. It costs thousands, and she smears the stuff all over her entire body. Give us all a break J Lo. This is absurd.

There are products online that are advertised as those used by celebrities. One thing you can always count on about celebrity skin care is that it’s pricey. So don’t be shocked if you have to fork out the big bucks to have a complexion like J Lo’s or legs like Fergi’s.

Glamorous Paris Fashion Week

Glamorous Paris Fashion Week

Summary: Autumn/ Winter Paris Fashion Week which was held last March were inspired with French heritage.

A fashion week is a fashion industry event, normally named after the host city or commercial sponsor, which lasted four to ten days. This kind of event is held so that fashion designers are able to showcase their “collections” for either spring or fall seasons.

The Spring fashion weeks are held in January through March, and Fall fashion weeks are held between September and November. The fashion weeks are to be held a few months in advance of the season to allow the press and buyers a chance to preview fashion designs for the following season. This is to allow time for retailers to arrange to purchase or incorporate the designers into their retail marketing.

Fashion weeks are attended by buyers for major stores, the media, celebrities, and members of the entertainment industry. The highlight is usually the renowned runway show, where the top designers are frequently part of the week’s activities, most especially in the major cities.

The most well-known and celebrated Fashion Weeks are London Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week, Los Angeles Fashion Week, Tokyo Fashion Week, and many more.

The Paris fashion week, which was held at the Jardins Ephemeres in Paris, was a Paris autumn/winter fashion week 2006 /2007 which opened on March 2006. It was attended by many famous designers and celebrities, and a lot of fashion lovers. Some of the very popular autumn/winter Parish fashion Week designers who showcased their collections are Valentino, Miu Miu, Hermes, John Galliano, Elie Saab, Comme des Garçons, and Louis Vuitton.

At Paris Fashion Week this year, collections were laced with wit and literary, historical and even political allusions. The ways the designers put together all their ideas to come with unique designs were extraordinary. As a person who does not give that much attention to the latest fashion, and who does not wear what they call “latest fashion”, I found myself admiring the collections of this year’s Paris Fashion Week. I have enjoyed watching every designer’s collection. I never imagined I could appreciate those kinds wardrobe. The reasons maybe are that the designs were historically inspired, and very classy.

Now I have the clearest idea why many people, especially celebrities come and watch fashion shows, and why the collections are being photographed so much. Is it because it is hosted by or held in a well-known place, for example Paris Fashion Week? Definitely not! Almost all of the Fashion shows features beautifully designed collections of the designers’ works being worn by skinny, tall, and lifeless dolls (which make the latest fashion clothing more stunning) on the runways. I bet all the designers had a hard time coming up those masterpieces but it’s all worth the effort.

Car Buying Behaviours and the Celebrity Factor

Car Buying Behaviours and the Celebrity Factor

Buying a car can be hard enough; do I want a hatchback, saloon, 4-door, 2-door, convertible, four-wheel drive? How much can I afford to pay for insurance? Furthermore, being given the hard sell in the dealership showroom can add more pressure. However, do we need the hard sell or have we already subconsciously made a decision on the car we would like to buy?

Studies have shown that many customers do not need the hard sell, but instead just a picture to show off the features of the car. We’ve all probably seen an advert on television or a picture in a magazine or newspaper, which has made us look at the car and want to have one on the spot! Obviously, it aids the customer if the picture is of something sleek and stylish rather than a rust-bucket, which is why the desirability of vehicles such as a sporty hatchback is high.

Manufacturers are clever in the way that they’ll do this. You’ll notice on more occasions than not with car adverts that the price provided is not for the car you are seeing. The picture of the car will be the top of the range version with all of the possible extras, but in fact the price you’ll be told is the “starting from” price for the lowest car in its’ range. The price for the actual car you are viewing will usually be in small print at the bottom of the advert.

Do, however, the roles of celebrities come into play in persuading us to purchase a certain make or type of car? I believe that they do.

Take a look at the BMW X5 for example. Since the release of this car, every celebrity and their dog have one. I believe as a consequence of this, the amount of non-celebrities driving this car has risen dramatically. The same can be said for a few cars, which brings the assumption that we, to some extent, base our lifestyles on celebrities, who influence us to purchase cars that are deemed fashionable and popular by them.

The bases for buying a certain car by many will be “will my friends laugh at me?” and “will I look cool in it?”. After all, the technological strides of manufacturers recently have meant that the reliability and performance of vehicles is very good, and certainly more than adequate for most drivers using city and country roads. So what else can there be to influence the decision of car buyers other than the “cool” factor?

Maybe, the running costs and fuel consumption is prominent somewhat; especially for the four-wheel drive and high performance vehicles. However, the celebrity power has certainly persuaded many in their car buying decisions, and will almost definitely continue to do so.

Charity Bingo

Charity Bingo

Charity Bingo is one of the most popular fundraising methods today. Because charities are so important to many players, they prefer to play charity bingo when playing land-based bingo.

Today more people are informed and conscious of helping others. Most charities have their own websites and some even advertise. To some businesses and celebrities, donating money to charities has become an important marketing tool. Fortunately, to many people charity bingo is still a sincere way to aid those in need.

Most bingo halls cater for a specific charity or group of charities. Players donate money by buying their bingo cards. Charity bingo is also a fun way of donating money – players get value for their money by having the fun and entertainment of playing bingo.

Many charity bingo halls also offer great prizes, and sometimes even cash prizes. These prizes are important, because it serves as an incentive to players to buy more bingo cards.

Other incentives include free food like popcorn at doors, or receiving a free bingo card after purchasing a certain number of cards.

Of course playing bingo is not all charity bingo is about. Some charity bingo halls offer much more. Most charity bingo halls sell food and drink. Many are equipped with a full bar! At some charity bingo halls you can buy hot-dogs, burgers and fries. At some you can even buy a full catered buffet if you come early.

There are also opportunities for bingo lovers who want to do more than just donating money by playing bingo. Most halls are always in need of volunteers. Charity volunteers do work such as selling cards, circulating around the floor and/or from a booth. They count the number of players, check the winning numbers and keep the tables and ashtrays clean. They also help to clean at the end of a charity game. Some can even act as callers and gain valuable experience!

For those bingo players looking for something more than just a charity bingo game, there is rock & roll bingo. Rock & roll bingo is hosted by celebrities and rock stars. Some of the celebrities are Tom Morello, guitarist of Audioslave, and Flea, or Michael Balzary, from Red Hot Chili Peppers.

When choosing a charity bingo hall to play at, bingo players should be careful. Most charity bingo halls are registered charity bingo halls and must be able to prove their legitimacy, as most charity bingo halls are registered.

Charity bingo plays an important role in our society as it provides many with an opportunity to do something for others in need. As Margaret Mead said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

“How do I date beautiful women, even celebrities?” my idiot client asked…

“How do I date beautiful women, even celebrities?” my idiot client asked…

Are you a guy who’s interested not only in dating beautiful women, even celebrities, but would like to get beautiful women to approach YOU first? Can it really be done? The answer is an unqualified “yes” IF you know what to say and do, and what to avoid saying and doing.
Most guys have no clue about the day to day life of stunningly beautiful women. They have no idea how many times a DAY these beautiful women are approached by guys whose obvious interest is to “sex them up.” And for celebrities, it’s even worse. Day in, and day out they hear the same thing: “oh you’re such beautiful women… do you have boyfriends… can I take you out…” and on and on and on. Beautiful women simply become numb to guys asking them these questions, and tune them out.
Now, that’s not to say these beautiful women don’t want to meet men… because they do. Many of them desperately. But beautiful women like a guy who’ll say something different to them, something unusual, something that will create attraction in them. And most of all beautiful women crave a man who “defines authority” for them, one who is not intimidated by their looks (or fame). Let me give you an example.
I’m in the business of teaching other guys how to get desirable, beautiful women to approach them first for a date, no matter their looks, age or income (see www.womenapproachyou.com). And while I rarely take clients, occasionally I’ll make a mistake and let someone talk me into helping them.
A few weeks ago I was working with a guy who was desperately in need of help. Like I always do, I asked him, “What specifically do you want in beautiful women? What don’t you want? And most importantly, what’s your ideal experience with a woman?” Most of guys, of course, have no specific answers to these questions—and if you don’t know what you’re looking for, it’s extremely difficult to achieve any measure of success—whether with beautiful women or in any area of your life.
This guy, amazingly enough, didn’t pause with his answer: “I’d like to sex Paris Hilton—and other beautiful women” he leered. I was a bit taken aback—apparently I don’t speak the “new lingo.” “Sex Paris Hilton,” I said. “What the heck does that mean, sex Paris Hilton?”
“It means I’d like to get with her you know, sex her up, sex Paris Hilton—or a woman like her.” Ah-ha. “So your goal is to share a few adventures with celebrities, or beautiful women who look like celebrities?” He nodded eagerly—“I’ll settle for a look-alike,” he said, “but what do I say, what do I do to get beautiful women to even speak to me?”
Here’s what I told him in regards to beautiful women: first off, get all thoughts of lust out of your head. If you want to spend time with beautiful women, you need to get to know them as people first.
Here’s what to do: when you see a beautiful woman (or beautiful women) you want to approach, look her in the eye, and smile slightly, using your “naughty little boy smile.” Your intent is to make her smile back at you, while you continue to hold her gaze, and smile wider and “naughtier.” Look for something unusual about her that few other guys would notice, and bring it to her attention. For example:
“You look like a well-conditioned athlete… what are you training for?”
“Hmmm, that’s a most unusual tattoo… what made you decide to get that particular one?”
“That’s a very professional looking business suit… what’s the occasion for dressing so professionally?”
“You have a great energy, much like my friends in the martial arts… what kind of physical training do you do to have such a great energy… or is it just natural?”
Or if all else fails, “What are smiling about… remembering something that makes you grin?”
The key is to notice something about her environment, and ask her an open ended question letting her know you’re sincerely curious about her. Don’t tell her, “you’re a beautiful woman and I like beautiful women.” She’s heard that. You want to give her an opportunity to talk about herself, something few guys ever do. They’re trying to impress her, instead of shutting up, listening and letting her impress herself about you.
By doing this, you let her know you’re interested in her as a person (as opposed to a sweaty piece of meat), that you appreciate her beauty (and beautiful women) but you’re not intimidated or especially impressed by it, and that you need to hear more before you let her into your life. When you do this, you will stand out from the crowd that asks her the same questions over and over and over—and she’ll be more than happy to pick YOU up!

Democrats Versus Republicans, The Battle Is Almost Over

Democrats Versus Republicans, The Battle Is Almost Over

The following are the opinions of the author and although I believe them to be true I am not stating them as anything other than my opinions.

Ever since the time of Abe Lincoln, Democrats and Republicans have been fighting for control of the United States Of America. In the beginning, both political parties contained liberals, moderates and conservatives. As time wore on the Democratic Party moved more to the left or ‘liberal’ and the Republican Party moved more to the right or ‘Conservative’. This left room for fewer and fewer moderates.

Over the last several years, however, the far, far left has been taking over control of the Democratic Party and now the coup is almost completed. The far left zealots have virtually pushed most of the slightly left, the moderates and the conservatives out of the Democratic Party. Most of the moderates and conservatives left have learned to keep quiet and go with the tide in order to stay in office. Now the battle, for control of this country, has changed, it is now the far left against everyone else. People like Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi, Joseph Biden, Robert Byrd, Barbara Boxer, etc. (I don’t include Edward Kennedy because, in my opinion, he lost touch with reality long ago and just talks in order to see and hear himself on the news.) along with their Hollywood friends, Barbara Streisand, Susan Saranden, Alec Baldwin, Whoopi Goldberg, Martin Sheen, Spike Lee, etc., now run the Democratic Party and more moderate people, like Joseph Lieberman, are being ignored or vilified by the party, the party’s supporters and a large part of the press. The far left only wants people, that think like they do or will do what they tell them to do, in the Democratic Party. They fear and dislike moderates, conservatives, moderate liberals and anyone that they can not control.

The far left has gone so far left that, in my opinion, they make liberals seem like hard right wingers. I don’t believe that the far left cares about America, the American people or anyone else except themselves. The far left politicians want power and they will do anything to get and keep that power. They claim to support our troops in Afganistan and Iraq, yet they do everything they can do to ruin the troops moral and aid the terrorists. They use their Hollywood friends and the ultra liberal press to spread half truths, lies, rumors and ridiucule about anyone who does not agree with them. They have even taken to giving responses to President Bush’s speeches before he makes the speech. They have learned from President Clinton how to take credit for anything good that happens and how to lay blame on others for anything bad that happens. They use people like President Carter, one of the kindest, most caring, most honest and most trusting men to ever hold public office, to critcize the present administration’s policies.

President Carter, does not have an agenda, he is just, as always, slightly naive about and too trusting of the good will of others. He believes that there would be peace on earth if people followed the dictates of the far left, so the far left uses him as a front.

The far left uses celebrities who are not only naive but insulated from the real world. Celebrities who are surrounded by yes people telling them that they are smarter and better than the rest of us, celebrities who are wealthy, do not have to go to a supermarket to do their shopping, who fly first class, drive whatever kind of car they wish, live in expensive homes or apartments and pay people to do most everything for them. These celebrities can afford to be idealistic and fight for ideals that can’t work. They can talk about raising taxes, after all, they can’t spend all the money they already have, demand rehabilitation for drug addicts, after all, the only drug addicts they actually deal with are other celebrities, rage against nuclear power plants and new oil drilling, after all they can afford to pay their electric and gas bills, no matter how expensive they are, fight for the rights of criminals and gun control, after all, they have bodyguards, many of whom are armed, and expensive security systems, to protect them so why should they worry about a storeowner who has been robbed three or four times or a woman who is raped and killed in her home. Most of these celebrities mean well, they just don’t know what it is like to live in the real world. Don’t tell me that many of these same celebrities had bad or poor childhoods. That was then and this is now.

Celebrities that do have an idea as to what is really going on and speak out against criminals, or support the war against terrorism, or fight for cheap utilities or heaven forbid support acknowledging god or who back moderate politicians or even worse support President Bush are ridiculed and ostracized. Some, no matter how talented, even have trouble obtaining work. Michael Moore, produces a poorly made anti administration movie and is lionized by Hollywood while Mel Gibson makes a well made movie about Christ and is ridiculed and put down by Hollywood. The fact that the people greatly prefered Gibson’s movie didn’t matter to Hollywood.

I am a slightly conservative moderate with many slightly liberal beliefs, however the far left is pushing me more and more to the right. I used to believe that you should vote for the person not the party. Now I am forced to vote straight Republican because I can’t trust any Democrat to stand up to the far left. I like Joe Lieberman but would not vote for him because the odds are that the far left will eventually push him out of office or force him to support them. I disliked and never trusted President Nixon but today I would have to vote for him rather than any Democrat. I consider President Kennedy to be one of our best modern Presidents but could not, today, vote for him.

Pleople say to me "What about Hillary Clinton? She is a moderate.". I say "baloney, as far as I can tell, Hillary Clinton does not believe in anything. She says and does whatever, she thinks, will get votes and help consolidate her power. I don’t believe that she cares any more for this country or it’s people than her husband did. If she believes that the far left can get her what she wants she will become one of their most rabid members.

The far left has hijacked the Democratic Party and they are at war with anyone and everyone who does not follow their dictates. They hide under the title ‘Democrat’ and claim to want to change America for the better. What they really want to do is to rule this country and make it over into their own image. They want us to be free to do what they think is best, not what we think is best. They believe that the end justifies the means and in order to gain their rule they will lie, cheat, support our enemies, spend whatever amount of money they have to and do anything else that may help them.

As far as the far left is concerned, their biggest enemy, at this time, is President Bush. They hate him and fear him, so they are doing everthing they can in order to ruin him. They blame him for everthing that has gone wrong in the world. Their celebrity spokespeople have people believing that the problems caused by hurricane Katrina are all his administration’s fault. The fact that, both the Democratic Mayor of New Orleans and the Democratic Governor of Louisiana were extremely slow to act in calling in the Federal Government doesn’t matter, the fact that it appears that several crooked politicians spent money given to them, prior to the hurricane, for levy repairs, on themselves, doesn’t matter, the fact that the people of New Orleans never bothered to prepare themselves for a category 5 hurricane, doesn’t matter. All that matters is if they keep telling everyone that it’s the President’s fault, pretty soon everyone will believe it. People like Jay Leno, David Letterman and other celebrities and comedians constantly joke about how stupid the President is. The fact that he was smart enough to earn a university and a post graduate degree, doesn’t matter, thefact that he was smart enough to become Governor of Texas, doesn’t matter, the fact that he was smart enough to become President of the United States doesnt matter, the fact that he was smart enough to marry Laura Bush, doesn’t matter. All that matters is that Leno and Letterman joke about his being stupid, therefore he must be stupid (This country has elected many Presidents that may have done a bad job at running this country but, I don’t believe that we have ever elected a stupid President, and if we did elect a stupid President, doesn’t that make us stupid for doing so.). I could list numerous other examples but this article is already to long, so I won’t.

The citizens of this country better wake up and start fighting back or soon we will no longer be a two party system or have a democratic republican form of government. We will have one Party, the far left, and they will rule us. They will be telling us what to think, when to think it and how to think it. I don’t know about you, but I like my freedom. I want a country with liberals, moderates and conservatives. I want to have a choice in who to vote for. I want to be able to think for myself. I don’t want to be ruled by the far left anymore than I want to be ruled by the far right. I want a country that represents everyone, a country that is "one country, under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all".

Selecting the Perfect Evening Attire

Selecting the Perfect Evening Attire

Women have an array of choices when selecting evening wear. This is a clothing category that allows women to express themselves in many fanciful ways. There are few rules as to what is appropriate, so each woman can choose whatever suits her own style and personality. This flexibility is evident when watching award shows. Some celebrities have appeared in outfits that defied gravity while others seemed to have animals growing from their clothes.

Making an appropriate choice in women’s evening wear depends to a certain extent on the occasion, the level of formality needed and the climate. In spring and summer, light colored gauzy fabrics are often seen. There can be an element of whimsy about these dresses. Short dresses are popular for evening wear in warm weather, particularly for outdoor events.

In fall and winter, the general tone is more serious. While there are still many sleeveless and strapless gowns, they tend to be more structured. Taffeta, velvet, brocade and other rich fabrics are the norm. Black is always a popular color for women’s evening wear in winter, but burgundy, deep blue and other dark, rich colors make fabulous alternatives.

Some women even choose tuxedo like pantsuits for evening events. This can be a great alternative in cold weather, although a long dress in a winter fabric worn with a coordinating shawl or a fur wrap can result in the same level of comfort.

<b>Celebrities love designer evening wear</b>

When actresses are interviewed as they walk the red carpet before award shows, one question they are always asked is, "Who designed your gown?" Designer evening wear has become a requirement for these posh events, so much so that many designers loan custom made gowns to top stars at no charge.

Calvin Klein, Dolce and Gabbana, Valentino, Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, Versace and more are popular with many of today’s well known performers. But women aren’t the only ones whose taste in clothes is an issue at these events. Men have become fashion plates as well and will also be asked the source of their designer evening wear. Armani is well known for his top quality suits and his tuxedoes have quite a following also.

Knockoffs of the most attractive gowns seen on televised award shows are usually available in stores within a few weeks after the show to which they were first worn. These are unauthorized copies made to sell at prices regular people can afford. While a designer gown might cost $5,000, the department store copy will go for about $200. Unfortunately, the great bodies worn by celebrities are often harder to reproduce.
