Nick Young Is An Unexpected Contender For The
cheap ray bans NBA

We’ve had some discussion
cheap ray bans in the Deadspin office today about the use of the word "hipster," and whether or not we can apply the term to Washington Wizards guard Nick Young, who scored 60 points in a Drew League game last night. Dickey claims that the term is too "fraught" and complicated to be so liberally applied.
cheap ray ban outlet He wondered about the historical context of Young’s hipsterdom "was his hair always this floppy?" and if it was really fair to count a magazine photo shoot against (or for!) him. Someone else posited that he might be a "blipster," to borrow a term that probably should not be borrowed, and it was also suggested that he might be an "inverse hoopster," which, I don’t know it’s just too soon.

I personally would prefer to avoid all of this discussion and and simply suggest that our cultural criticism has progressed (regressed?) enough to the point that we can apply the term "hipster" rather indiscriminately, and that if one is photographed wearing a leopard print tank top and Velcro sneakers and Ray Bans, then one might automatically qualify, in a loose,
fake ray bans rather haphazard assessment, as a hipster. So yes, I’m going to call Nick Young a hipster. He joins rather storied ranks in the organization, anyway, so it’s not a total affront: Rajon Rondo, Steve Nash, Amar’e Stoudamire, Baron Davis and Russell Westbrook will surely all welcome him with matching glasses and graphic Ts.Articles Connexes:

Did NFL act irresponsibly in Ray Rice domestic abuse case

Liberal media skews information

Can there be any question who runs this country? How often have we seen issues created out of whole cloth by the liberal media? We saw it with George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin when the media decided nearly a month after the incident to report on it. The most recent liberal media created issue is hearing ad nauseum about the NFL.

Months after pro football player, Ray Rice, admitted to hitting his girlfriend, a new video emerges that offered absolutely no more significant information about the incident. Yet the news media/entertainment industry used it to create a controversy where there was none. Armed with a video that offers no new facts, only visual confirmation of what was already known, the liberal media/entertainment industry alleges there is a domestic violence problem in the NFL.

But guess what? Another fact ignored by the liberal media/entertainment industry is the percentage of domestic violence cases in the NFL is less than the percentage of domestic violence nationally.

Also in an NFL related issue being kept alive by the politically correct liberals in the news media is the push to have the Washington Redskins owner change their name because it allegedly offends Native Americans. There are actually more
cheap ray bans liberal activists in the news/entertainment industry making this allegation than Native Americans.

Honest journalism is dead. There is no integrity, only a liberal narrative coming from 90 percent of the news/entertainment industry to advance their liberal agenda. This is commonly known as propaganda.

Re " Owner: ‘No misinformation’ by Ravens on Ray Rice," Sept. 23 Associated Press article:

The NFL is made up of 32 teams owned by 32
cheap ray bans billionaires with tax exempt status given by Congress. The average citizen or small business does not enjoy the same benefits.

Additionally, they get local governments to build state of the art stadiums at little or no cost. Once a stadium is built the owners enjoy revenue generated by parking, concessions, team
cheap ray ban outlet logo clothing and more. Despite these benefits, teams have been known to pick up and move to another city, leaving the former host city in a financial bind.

Today, the NFL finds itself in a moral bind; its dirty laundry has been made public. Some players have carried the brutality of football into their homes, beating wives or girlfriends. The NFL, until now, has seen fit not to recognize the severity of these actions, issuing mild rebukes to those players.

Over the last few weeks the NFL has changed its story several times about the events leading to Ray Rice’s lifetime ban. Ravens owner Steve Biscotgti and management staff have also changed their versions of events. The recent press conference by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was a complete charade, saying he and the team owners made a mistake.

Questions about who saw what tape and the appropriate punishment remain. The NFL should not be allowed to operate as an entity unto itself, and should be stripped of its special privileges. I also believe Congress should intervene and hold a hearing.Articles Connexes:

The original ’70s Hustle was a more demanding dance, requiring partner lifts and spins, says co owner and director Rozana Sweeney. The ’80s Hustle is simpler and more within the capability of average dancers. "There’s more turns, connections, push and pull stuff," she says.

Registration is required. It’s important to, well, hustle, because the price goes up after Wednesday and the class fills quickly. They turned people away during the last Hustle workshop. Leg warmers are optional.

Art Style Dance Studio is at 44 Pius St., near East Carson and 18th streets in the South Side. Saturdays. Details: 412 381 1671 or online .

"We have more and more ’80s stuff all the time," she says. "When we originally opened, I focused more on the ’70s and ’60s, but as time goes on, ’80s stuff becomes more and more collectable."

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stand sentry on the shelves. You’ll also find action figures from the "Ghostbusters" movies, "Peewee’s Playhouse" and the popular "He Man" cartoons.

"They must have made 50 different He Man figures," Dupree says.

She hasn’t forgotten about the girls, either. They also stock Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears merchandise. In the ’80s, Mattel also launched a line of Barbies that featured a rock group called Barbie and the Rockers. Other members were Ken, Dana, Diva and Derek.

Debate the virtue of yellow Wall Street power ties versus skinny red leather "new wave" ties at Eons Fashion Antique in Shadyside. Owner Richard Parsakian has a revolving stock of ’80s men’s and women’s clothing, including retro
cheap ray bans looks by designers such as Thierry Mugler and Norma Kamali.

"Essentially, the ’80s copied the silhouette of the ’40s for men and women in a more exaggerated way," Parsakian says. "When you look at ‘Dynasty’ and early Princess Di, it was all exaggerated 1940s."

Fashion designers paraphrased that era’s wide, padded shoulders, trench coats and pleated, high waisted "zoot suit" pants.

Eons also stocks skinny pants
replica ray bans for women and "a leather dress that’s very Janet Jackson," Parsakian says. They’ve also got prom dresses from the era, and some women’s hats.

"They’re really obnoxious looking," he says. "Think of Aretha Franklin at the inaugural."

Eons Fashion Antique is at 5850 Ellsworth Ave., Shadyside. Sundays. Details: 412 361 3368.

The ’80s also boasted its share of food fads. Blackened Cajun cuisine was everywhere. And more diners were opting for a raw deal as sushi gained popularity. It might have officially entered the mainstream after Molly Ringwald had it for lunch in the 1985 movie "The Breakfast Club."

It’s too bad that Froggy’s, the Market Square watering hole that used to pack in the yuppies in its ’80s heyday, has closed. Ditto for Confetti, the nightclub at Parkway Center Mall in Green Tree where you could dance to Adam Ant’s "Goody Two Shoes" and pound down the Zimas.

Over dinner, you and your date can bond by confessing to your more egregious fashion and music transgressions during the Reagan years. Maybe you wore a lumberjack shirt.

History of negligence in fatal electrocution case

A litany of basic safety
fake Michael Kors failures allegedly led to the fatal electrocution of a driver whose tip truck hit live power lines, despite the company responsible for the site being disciplined for the exact same breaches four years earlier.

Prosecutors allege active power lines were not turned off, live wire signage was missing, no spotter was used, and visual warnings were missing from the work site where Michael Booth, 48, was killed in March 2012.

Mr Booth was dumping gravel type material for road resurfacing at the Barry Drive site in Turner, a project run by Kenoss Contractors, which was contracted by the ACT government.

His tip truck either hit or came too close to power lines, sending 11,000 volts running through the vehicle to the earth.

Mr Booth got out of the truck but collapsed and could not be revived.

He was flown to Sydney where
Michael Kors discounts he was pronounced dead.

Kenoss, now in liquidation, and its project manager Munir al Hasani, also known as Allan Hassani, are facing one criminal charge each for
fake Michael kors handbags outlet a series of alleged safety breaches.

The hearing began in the ACT Industrial Court on Monday, and prosecutor Sara Gul gave a detailed opening submission, laying out the case against both company and manager.

She said access to the small compound on the site where Mr Booth was dumping the material was not locked or properly managed.

"It sat beneath low, active power lines. No arrangement had
Michael Kors outlet been made to turn the power lines off. No arrangements had been made for alternatives to turning them off."

Flags and tiger tails are typically attached to overhanging power lines on construction sites. No such visual warnings existed at the Kenoss site.

Mr Booth was there on a windy, cloudy day, which, combined with foliage, made visibility poor. Yet noone from Kenoss acted as his spotter.

The systems manager responsible for the company’s safety processes, Dimitri Brendas, admitted in court he had no safety qualifications or formal training. Mr Brendas was also the son of a director of Kenoss, a company owned by the Brendas family.

Road construction work near live power lines is considered "high risk" activity under ACT work safety regulations.

Yet there were allegedly no specific risk assessments for the small compound near the power lines.

That was despite Kenoss and al Hasani being slapped with a prohibition notice by WorkSafe ACT in 2008 for exactly
Michael Kors handbags the same issue at a site in Tralee.

Ms Gul said the dangers that led to Mr Booth’s deaths were "clearly foreseeable" and the power could have been easily and simply shut off.

WorkSafe inspectors showed up at the site after Mr Booth’s electrocution. One gave evidence on Monday that, without asking for it, he was quickly handed a document that purported to show an "M. Booty" as signing in for a toolbox talk about the dangers of power lines on February 25.

Mr Booth did not start work for Kenoss until March. The owner of his truck driving company, David O’Meley, gave evidence that Mr Booth wasn’t on the Kenoss job on February 25.

Work safety expert Dr Robert Long, who was brought in to advise Kenoss after the incident, told the court on Monday he had found a significant lack of documentation. Even minutes or notes from critical company meetings appeared not to exist, he said.

Among other things, Dr Long criticised the lack of any real induction process before entering Kenoss sites and the inadequate controls for overhead power line hazards.

He said the company only showed him "the things they wanted me to see".

When he gave "frank and fearless" advice to them on their failings, he said their response was poor.

"It became clear to me that they didn’t want to go down the particular advice pathway that I’d given them," he said.

"So I severed my ties with them."

Al Hasani, who is representing himself, briefly stated to the court at the outset of the hearing that there were issues about who had control of the site at the time.

He also said the documentation referred to by the prosecution in its opening did not necessarily reflect actual practice at the work site.

Al Hasani questioned another work
cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet safety expert, David Segrot, about an external audit of Kenoss six weeks prior to Mr Booth’s death and cleared it. Mr Segrot conceded the external audit could have given Kenoss a "false sense of security" over its compliance with safety requirements.

Mr Segrot later said the external
replica Michael Kors outlet audit had not looked at site specific hazards at Kenoss work sites, such as
discount Michael Kors overhead power lines.Articles Connexes:

Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission

The law says it is illegal to discriminate in the area of accommodation. That means if you have an apartment to rent, you can decide not to rent to a person because of what is known as a characteristic." Race, sexual orientation, gender, source of income and family status are examples of protected
cheap Michael kors handbags outlet characteristics. You can find the full list of them here, or
cheap michael kors in the
fake Michael kors handbags outlet Nova Scotia Human Rights Act/ Loi sur les droits de la personne.

To discriminate means to treat someone different from another person because of their race, sexual orientation,
Michael Kors handbags outlet etc., in a way that creates a burden for that person. Landlords sometimes won rent an
wholesale Michael Kors handbags outlet apartment to a family with children, to a
michael kors handbags outlet black family, or to a gay family. This is against the law. Other times, landlords will rent to someone with a protected characteristic, but then treat them different from others. They
cheap Michael kors handbags outlet might make them pay their rent in advance or pay a larger damage deposit. This is illegal, too.

Most landlords understand it is wrong to
fake Michael kors handbags outlet discriminate. They set rules and standards, and apply them equally to all their tenants and applicants.
