Woman killed in house fire in South Yorkshire, England

Woman killed in house fire in South Yorkshire, England

Monday, January 25, 2010

An elderly woman has died in a house fire in South Yorkshire, England. The woman, who is currently remaining unidentified, was blind and 93-years-old when her bungalow in Sheffield caught fire as a result of an accident in her kitchen yesterday afternoon.

An internal investigation into the fire has suggested that while the woman was cooking, she dropped a towel onto one of the stovetops while attempting to move a pan on the cooker. The towel then set alight. When she attempted to put out the fire, the towel dropped to the side of the cooker, alongside some plastic bags.

A smoke alarm sounded; a nearby resident heard the alarm and went to assist. The neighbour managed to break into the bedroom window of the bungalow in order to be able to get inside the building. The person made it to the hallway but had to double back upon seeing the fire and the smoke. It is believed that the woman was overwhelmed by the fumes given out from the plastic which was burning.

At around 1350 GMT, fire service workers entered the elderly lady’s residence to find her collapsed inside the kitchen. People investigating the incident have come to the conclusion that this particular fire was an accidental one. A spokesperson for the South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service noted: “Neighbours who tried to enter the property were fought back by smoke and flames.”

Submitted by: Brianna Williams

If traveling and exploring new places is the ideal way of spending an adventurous and enjoyable holiday, then RVs are just for you. RVs make for the most compatible companion on such trails, as they provide the comfort of home even while traveling to places where there are no signs of basic amenities. RVs allow you to have your own space even while traveling to distant places.

If driving on less traveled paths or the highways, with your friends or family, seems to be the perfect way of spending an adventurous and enjoyable holiday, then RVs make for the most compatible companion on such trails. They provide the comfort of home even while traveling to places where there are no signs of basic amenities. RVs can be best described as a small home on wheels and vagabonds swear by these.

RVs are available in different styles, shapes and sizes, from the size of a luxury bus to that of a truck. You can also go for van shaped or the one with the tent camper. These come well built with a kitchen, bathroom, sitting and relaxing area and equipped with other technical essentials like GPS system, satellite and sound connections, internet connection, etc. The best part of these vehicles is that you get to have your own space even while traveling to distant places, i.e, cook your own food and sleep on your bed, and also save money which otherwise would have been spent on booking motels or hotels.

With so many facilities, these also come with high price tags. This is the reason why RVs remain a dream vehicle for many till the time they have saved enough to own one. And if you are one of such people, then there is another way of becoming a proud owner of the vehicle, i.e, going for second hand or used RVs. These are gaining high popularity due to their low price but same facility offerings, as compared to the newly bought RVs.

If you are careful and consider certain important factors, then it might be possible that you strike a better deal than going for a new RV.

* Firstly, before starting looking out for RVs, make clear in your mind as to which kind of RV will suit your requirements, whether a motor home, truck camper or any other. This will help you in limiting your options and doing result oriented research.

* It is important that you conduct a thorough examination of the vehicle, before buying, rather than going just by the outer look, as there might be an internal problems such as technical defects, leakage in the roof, etc. Also make sure that you are acquainted with the previous record of the particular vehicle.

* While buying, take care that all the previous mortgages have been paid by the original owner, otherwise, you might have to face financial and even legal problems in future.

* Make sure that the vehicle comes with an insurance and warranty period, so that the maintenance of the vehicle does not create trouble for you later on.

It is best to contact the owner himself, than going through a dealer, as they are shrewd enough to sell you anything in order to make money. For this, you can do an online research, as there are number of reliable sites which get you in contact with the owner of the vehicle. Here you can buy all types of used RVs, including class A, class B motorhomes for sale at affordable prices.

Kara Tointon and Artem Chigvintsev win UK Strictly Come Dancing

Kara Tointon and Artem Chigvintsev win UK Strictly Come Dancing

Monday, December 20, 2010

British actress Kara Tointon and her Russian dance partner Artem Chigvintsev have become the winners of the latest series of the BBC Television programme Strictly Come Dancing. The pair won the dancing show on Saturday, leaving British television presenter Matt Baker and his Kazakhstani dance partner Aliona Vilani in second place.

It’s just the most special thing that I’ve ever achieved.

Bookmakers had considered this dancing duo to be the most likely to win the series. Meanwhile, Australian actress Pamela Stephenson finished in third place along with her British dance partner, James Jordan. It was ultimately a public vote that determined the results.

Upon winning, Tointon proclaimed: “It’s just the most special thing that I’ve ever achieved.” In reference to Chigvintsev, she exclaimed: “I want to thank this man, he’s been absolutely wonderful.” Talking about the experience, she commented: “I’ve met the most fantastic friends in my life and this has been the most special experience for me.” Chigvintsev then declared to Tointon: “You’re amazing.” Baker described the dancing pair as “worthy winners, without any doubt”, saying: “If I was at home I’d be voting for you, too.”

Earlier in the final programme, Tointon and Chigvintsev had danced to the tune of Cry Me a River; the dance received the acclaim of the judges. “I would kill to be able to dance like that, I thought it was amazing,” Craig Revel Horwood exclaimed. Alesha Dixon commented: “I’m quite sad that that is the last dance we are going to see you do”. In reference to the pair, she added: “Together you are first class.” Bruno Tonioli remarked: “You danced to a level that we hardly ever see here. Whatever happens, this was incredible.”

Bruno Tonioli described Matt Baker as “very dashing and elegant”. Len Goodman believed that he was “an excellent ballroom dancer”. At one point, Palema Stephenson received a perfect score of 40 from the four judges for her Viennese Waltz. Tonioli branded the dance as “simply brilliant”. Revel Horwood used the word “remarkable” to describe that performance.

Judges rule patrons may sue nude bars for lap-dance overcharges

Judges rule patrons may sue nude bars for lap-dance overcharges

Saturday, April 23, 2005

A three-judge Texas Court of Appeals ruling will allow men who were overcharged at nudie clubs to sue for refunds and damages.

The two plaintiffs, Paul Brian Meekey and Michael Fulmer, had their cases heard because they were charged more than a regular lap dance fee when they used a credit card, typically $25 for a $20 dance.

“Texas law is pretty clear that you cannot charge someone extra for using a credit card,” said Sandra Krider, an attorney for the patrons. “The fact that they are strip clubs shouldn’t mean they get away with it.”

A lawyer for the businesses, Rick’s Cabaret and the Men’s Club, argued a case based on the type of employment the ladies agreed to perform.

“Since the dancers are independent contractors and not employees of the club, the clubs are not the ones selling the dances,” said attorney Albert Van Huff.

But the men’s attorneys said the win could potentially become a class-action suit with many hundreds of men claiming their day in court. That could present a problem for other patrons who may not want their name and their use of a credit card at a nudie bar released in court transcripts.

“They are going to want the (strip) clubs’ credit card companies to give them the names of all the different people who have charged dances there,” said Van Huff.

The 14th Court of Appeals, a Texas court with headquarters in Houston, had reversed a ruling of a lower trial judge that this case should be heard before the state Finance Commission instead of in a judicial proceeding. The case was sent back to be tried again.

7 Tips On Faster Healing And Concealing Your Scars After A Face Lift}

Submitted by: Rena Graham

Although you might want take years off years from you face through the dramatic effects of face lift surgery, you also want to be discreet about it. When its time to go back to work, you would want your improved facial features to be noticed and not those postsurgical marks. So how do you promote faster healing and conceal those scars days after surgery? Here are seven tips that will help you heal faster and hide those scars more cleverly, like they never existed!

1. If you want to make sure that you get less chances of getting those visible ugly scars, find a good surgeon. When you go for a consult, ask for before and after photos, or ask on methods in which he can strategically hide incisions. This is all about technique so make sure that you find a surgeon who is experienced and has good client reviews. Make sure to find someone who is certified.

2. Faster healing means that you lessen the risk of any complications from happening. The trauma or wound made in surgery which is a good portal of entry for infection. If the scars close slowly, you put yourself in much greater risk for developing scars. To promote faster healing you need to eat healthy, avoid smoking and increase your water intake to nourish your skin better.

3. After surgery, make sure that you follow every post-op instruction the doctor provides. This means follow medication timing (especially antibiotics to prevent infection to develop), cleanse your wound area regularly and avoid touching it with unwashed hands.

4. Scar creams are also very good to help lighten and reduce scar formation. From medicated creams to those that are infused with herbal extracts such as aloe vera. But make sure that you ask your doctor about this first, just to be safe.

5. You can also find scar treatments in your own kitchen. By simply slicing a lemon in half and rubbing it on your facial scars can actually help lighten them. You can also boil milk and then stir in honey, nutmeg and water once you bring it to a cool. Then apply this mixture on your scars using a cotton swab and let it stay on overnight.

6. Exfoliation is also an effective way to lighten those face lift scars. Through the fine particles that comes in contact with your skin through this process removes dead skin cells. It will result to a skin that will look younger, smoother and clearer. It also effectively lightens the scars after a couple of sessions.

7. Concealing your scars days after a face lift surgery require some amount of creativity with a dash of makeup. You can use a camouflage makeup which includes concealers, contour shadows and colour correctors. Concealers can help you hide discoloration and incision lines, just make sure that you choose one that matches your skin. Contour shadows can mask swelling by brushing it along the side of your face following the line of your cheekbones while you pucker. Colour correctors can help neutralize redness that may develop on the incisions surrounding area.

Gunman attacks Planned Parenthood clinic, killing three, before surrendering

Gunman attacks Planned Parenthood clinic, killing three, before surrendering

Saturday, November 28, 2015

A gunman attacked a Planned Parenthood clinic yesterday in Colorado Springs, Colorado, killing three people, including one police officer, and injuring nine more, before he surrendered to police hours later. He exchanged fire with police in a standoff lasting around five hours.

There were a grocery store and a shopping mall nearby; police told those who were there to take “shelter in place”.

Colorado Springs police lieutenant Cathrine Buckley said the police doesn’t “have any information on [the suspect’s] mentality, or his ideas or ideology”.

Authorities said they received a report of shots fired at 11:38 a.m. local time (1838 UTC); the gunman was possibly carrying a “long gun” and maybe even propane tanks. Lieutenant Buckley said officers who entered the building “were able to shout to the suspect and make communication with him and that point they were able to get him to surrender and he was taken into custody”. Buckley said police only made contact and communicated with the suspect hours into the ordeal. The suspect was arrested at 4:52 p.m. after he surrendered to police.

At a press conference yesterday afternoon, police said searching through and investigating the “huge crime scene” could take hours or even days. Explosives teams checked the scene for traps.

Vicki Cowart, president of the Rocky Mountains chapter of Planned Parenthood, said some staff hid in “safe rooms” in the clinic as a part of Planned Parenthood’s security protocol. Many anti-abortion protests have focused on the Colorado Springs clinic; it moved to its current location, which critics have called a “fortress”, a few years ago.

Police evacuated the clinic, and cordoned off the clinic and nearby medical offices.

“Our hearts go out to everyone involved in this tragic situation”, Cowart said in a statement released on Planned Parenthood’s website. “We don’t yet know the full circumstances and motives behind this criminal action, and we don’t yet know if Planned Parenthood was in fact the target of this attack. We share the concerns of many Americans that extremists are creating a poisonous environment that feeds domestic terrorism in this country.”

The National Abortion Federation says at least eight murders have been committed in the US against abortion providers since 1977.

Furgon Or Camion Cesta}

Find Out More About:

Furgon or camion cesta



There are many different jobs you have to do, but it would not be possible if you did not have the right equipment. If you want to complete the tasks you are supposed to safely and within a proper timeframe, you have to focus on the tools you can use to get the job done. These are important if you want to get the proper results you are interested in.

If you want to pierce a concrete wall, you will need a rotary hammer as well as high quality drills to get the job done. If you had a small drill tool, you would not be able to perforate more than 1 or 2 cm. With the right equipment you will spend less time on this and you will go all the way through. The same can be said about a camion cesta.

If you must work at a reasonable height, the first option would be the ladder. This will get you to the desired height, but it will not offer complete stability and the range of tasks you can perform would also be limited. A furgn cesta is a much better option for this since you will have a small floor for your feet and it will also offer safety in the air.

Even though the basket as well as the hydraulic arm are the ones that will help you get the job done easier, faster and safer, you have to know if a camion cesta is better than the van or the other way around. If you want to make a good choice from the start, you will need to focus on the pros and cons of each vehicle before you make up your mind.

For instance, the furgn cesta is going to help you raise people to a certain height so they can perform the tasks they are supposed to. Apart from this, you will have quite a bit of storage space in the back and you will be able to use it for the tools and the other equipment you will need in the process. You will be able to divide the space as you see fit.

The extra storage space in the back will come with a drawback. The camion cesta has the basket as well as the arm that will raise the basket directly on a platform in the back. This is going to provide more room for the installation and thus it will be able to reach higher than the installations on the van. This is an aspect you have to consider.

You are the one that will decide whether a furgn cesta is better than a truck since you know what you will use it for. If you are sure about the option you will turn to and you want to find a source you can rely on for the equipment you need, you should visit the site of camionecesta.com. This is where you will find everything you are looking for.

A camion cesta (http://www.camionescesta.com) has a number of features you can make the most of, but you should also consider the furgn cesta (http://www.camionescesta.com). Each of them has its pros and cons and you should focus on each of them before you will decide which one is better for the jobs you have to perform.
