Similarly, the country of origin specification category on the CPI checklist istested to see if the hedonic model for clothes dryers could be fitted with any of thesevariables. Country of origin represents the country in which the product in thiscase clothes dryers was constructed and is believed to serve as a proxy for the qualityof a good and service. In the sample used in this study, over 98 percent of the 341clothes dryers were constructed in the USA . The remaining clothes dryer models inthe sample were made in Canada .  

This didn t sit well with the Williamses. John, who works for the Montana Department of Corrections, often interacts with people facing the reality of our finite time on Earth. If you re spending the rest of your life in prison, you know, it makes you think about the mortality of life, he says. What s important is not how long you live, but rather what you do with the life you re given. MaryMargret feels the same way. For years she has worked in a local dermatology office. She knows all too well the cultural pressures to stay young, and wishes more people would embrace the inevitability of getting older. You get wrinkles, you get old, that s part of the process, she says.

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

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!  

MEXICO - The Mexico Public Safety Department said Thursday it's looking for three suspects after finding some of their clothing at the scene of a burglary.

Fifty years ago, on 18 March 1965, Soviet astronaut Alexei Leonov took the first space walk. Listen to Rob and Neil describing the struggles of that ground-breaking space mission whilst explaining some related vocabulary.

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.

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.

 
This is definitely an American thing. You can always spot the americans because of the North Face jackets and the outdoor wear!  

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.'

Walker is working with a commercial outfit in California to compare all three girls entire genome sequences the exome plus the other 98% of DNA code, which is thought to be responsible for regulating the expression of protein-coding genes.

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.

This is very true. However being a person from the mountains in the west and now living in the city on the east. I don t feel as foolish wearing my ski jacket and hat when people are using umbrellas to cover themselves from the snow that never even sticks to the ground. You can spot the posers, but then again maybe I look foolish to them. But I still don t have to carry an umbrealla around wherever I go. FACE!

 
In August 2009, MaryMargret Williams saw a photo of Brooke on the cover of People magazine, just below the headline Heartbreaking mystery: The 16-year-old baby . She thought Brooke sounded a lot like Gabby, so contacted Walker.

I love outdoorsy people who think that nobody else could possibly be outdoorsy and thus should not be wearing outdoor gear. The worst culprits of this are people who work inside at gear shops and have superiority complexes

 
That side twisty ponytail definitely needs a tutorial to go with it are you listening, Namrata Soni ?

To each his (or her) own. Everyone has his or her own preferences. Personally, I use a clothesline much of the time in summer, but often toss those clothes into the dryer just to fluff them. Oh, that tends to get the beetles out, too. No fun finding a beetle in your undies.

You'll never have to hem and haw about whether something will be useful later, whether you should keep it because it's a 'good shirt' or was expensive or any of that! Note that 'sparking joy' applies perfectly well to items that aren't exactly thrilling but that serve us well. For instance, the cotton camisole that doesn't rise up and is just the right length — that sure sparks joy for me! Socks without holes spark a lot more joy than socks with holes. You get the picture.

A deliciously explicit addition to my collection of early-1900s photographs featuring the incomparable Il Serpente, ‘The snake’ - the most naturally blessed and beautifully, brazenly seductive of all Vincenzo Galdi’s models.

The moment I realised there was more than one Cain photograph in Wilhelm von Gloeden’s catalogue, I started to spot more and more variations. This one bears small ink annotations in von Gloeden’s own hand; if anyone can read what they say and would care to share with all the readers here, I’d be delighted to add that information to my caption!

An early 20th century photograph, striking in its simplicity with an unfussy, unpretentious pose, and no studio props to distract the eye and detract from the fine physique and charming handsome face of this unknown model.

A gently beautiful nude portrait by J. G Paine, c1920, though sadly the sitter’s name is not credited - rather than the quaint and faintly comical censorship by carefully placed leaf, favoured in earlier decades, this time the charming model’s modesty is preserved by the pose alone, giving the image a refreshingly modern and unfussy look.

An uncommon departure from the usual style for Wilhelm von Gloeden; we see very few studio-set photography sessions in his work, and even fewer poses intended to emphasise the size and definition of models’ muscles, as here. This man, with his fine moustache, can also be seen in this similar picture, and in stunning detail as the snake charmer.

Dating to 1905, this glorious flower-strewn scene of summery bliss created by Wilhelm von Gloeden was sold as a postcard (the publisher’s initials AE a co-incidental match for this very blog!). A fine souvenir for the traveller to treasure, or perhaps a treat to send home to a friend who shared the same appreciation of aesthetic beauty and male beauty combined!

We see a great many models posing nude for artists, but very few images of artists who choose to shed their own clothes to paint.

A stunning addition to my small but treasured collection of portraits featuring Nino Cesarini, Italian lover of the painter Jaques d'Adelswärd-Fersen and photographed on his terrace at the Villa Lysis in Capri, around 1905.

I’ve been collecting variations on von Gloeden’s famed 1902 “Cain” photograph for a little while now, this perhaps the greatest variation of all as the model has turned to face the opposite way.

An early 20th century nude, model unknown; though he may only have posed thus to aid an artist with their work, his photograph itself is a work of singular gentle beauty.
