I gotta give big props to New Jersey Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov for shutting down the studio on the Carmelo Anthony trade once it became obvious that the Denver Nuggets had the loose lips of a narco snitch and that Carmelo wasnt interested in signing a 3-year, $65 million extension with any team not called the New York Knicks.

Once the Russian billionaire found this out he did what any self-respecting man would do. He called off a hot date with the Nuggets All-Star forward on live TV. Burn, burn. Its been too long and too expensive, Prokhorov said. The English translation: This whore just wants my money. Then he had New Jersey Nets GM Billy King text Denver and the Detroit Pistons to tell them the sexy 3-way is off. Having your best friend do it? Thats priceless.

So theres a reason why this whole situation should piss Chicago Bulls fans off. Now all the sudden Anthonys agent is saying his client would be receptive to a trade to the Bulls. And Carmelos boy William Worldwide Wesley is expected to travel to Chicago for Bulls games on Thursday and Saturday against the Dallas Mavericks and Cleveland Cavaliers. You might remember him from last summer when he used the Bulls as leverage for Lebron in his dealings with the Miami Heat.

Oh really do the Bulls look that desperate, Carmelo? The Bulls dont have the worst record in the Eastern Conference (next to the Cavs) like the Nets do. The Bulls are 28-14 as I type, and were 18-4 at home. Derrick Rose is our Point Guard. You know that dude, Carmelo? He runs the show here in Chicago and last I checked he wasnt looking for a crutch like your boy Lebron.

Chicago doesnt need this kinda drama, and I hope John Paxon and Gar Forman ignore all calls from the 303 area code and delete William Wesleys thuggish voicemails without listening to them. What Worldwide Wes must not understand is how we love Joakim like we loved Dennis Rodman. We arent about to diss our dope-smoking rebounding machine for the next Free Agent Tramp of the Month.
Hopefully Bulls fans can take comfort in that last summer Bulls executives investigated a trade for Carmelo, but Denver insisted the Bulls include Joakim Noah in the deal. Pax and Gar laughed at that, talks cooled quickly, and Bulls fans can only hope its still funny.

The truth is we never wanted Chris Bosh. We never wanted Lebron. And we sure as hell dont wanna be Carmelo Anthonys easy mistress while hes engaged to be married to the New York Knicks in 2012. Take your talents to Madison Square Garden, you whore.
Derrick Rose for MVP!

The internet is a worldwide vehicle for relaying information. Adding a website in order to promote your goods or services often opens up your business to global clients. However, the savvy business owner does not forget their core business which is typically local. Catering to the local economy is a wise choice. So, while you do want to expand into the global community, you certainly do not want to forget about your local customers. When choosing web designers, hiring local web designers is also a good idea. It may be tempting to look for web designers from other areas or other countries, especially if it means a significant cost savings. However, consider how much a non-local web designer knows about your core business and what they may be able to bring to the enhancement of your site compared to local web designers.

What local web designers know about your local clients

Every country, every city, even every neighbourhood has its own culture and business climate. When a potential customer or client comes to your website they want to feel comfortable and have useful information. A web designer who lives halfway around the globe does not have the knowledge of the area to give local customers that sense of familiarity they want to feel at home. However, a local web designer has that knowledge and can build your site with an eye toward your local customers. They know what terminology to use, what locations to reference and even more importantly what not to do that may dissuade potential customers from remaining on your site.

Hiring local web designers supports your community

Every community is made stronger by reinvesting into it. Plus, networking amongst your community is a great way to drive traffic and increased revenue into local businesses. You can help a fellow business person who is vested in the community while also making valuable professional contacts. Supporting local businesses only helps it. But you will also get a boost in your own business, both local and global, by optimising your website.

The dangers of hiring non local web designers

The farther away from your location your web designer is, the less knowledge they are likely to have about your local business climate. This can range from a false sense of appropriate tone to language barriers that may make your site seem less than professional. Even if the site is visually appealing, odds are that the content is not optimal for your target client. So, even if you save some money initially by hiring a web designer who is not local, you may find that it actually costs you in the long run with loss of sales. Hiring local professional web designers though will alleviate such issues and will result in a successful web design project with a high return on your investment.

The fashion industry is big business and there will always be a wealth of potential designers and models desperately trying to get their foot in the door. In such a major industry it goes without saying that the competition is fierce and many will get left at the wayside. However, for those truly willing to apply themselves and ride a little luck it’s always going to be possible to make it. Of course for the fashion industry there are a few prerequisites and some things you can do to boost your chances.

Outgoing Personality

Flamboyant may be a better word for this as many of the biggest and most popular designers out there are renoun for this. You need to be confident to get anywhere in the fashion industry. It could of course be said that you need confidence to get ahead in any industry, but for the fashion industry it counts doubly. If you want to get yourself employed or get noticed you have to exude confidence and not be afraid to make yourself heard.

Ambition

Similarly to being outgoing you have to be fearlessly ambitious. Take advantage of any opportunity to get ahead and don’t be afraid to step on anyone’s toes. It might seem callous but the fashion industry is a brutal one, so don’t take any prisoners. When applying for a position, don’t be timid. Let them know what you’re willing to do to get ahead. If an employer thinks your ambitious then they’ll be more likely to give you the opportunity to prove it. Don’t be humble, but also don’t be arrogant. If you didn’t think you where capable you wouldn’t be trying in the first place.

An Eye for Style

This is obviously the first vital thing that a fashion designer needs in their arsenal. This isn’t something you can just learn but immersing yourself in fashion can really help to hone your understanding if you have that initial creativity. From Wille to Dolce & Gabbana you should know about it. Fashion ranges greatly from the stick thin catwalk to plus size clothes, so be aware of a range of styles. Fashion is always about the next big thing so if you know that you can bring this then let any potential employer knows about it.

Experience

A little experience can go a long way, even if it’s just part time working in a designer store. Working in related jobs might not be your intended end but can be a means to an end. This shows direction and will be taken into account in an interview. It will never do you any harm to have a little experience to back up your CV.

It is well past sun down but the day has just begun for this 27-year-old designer. “I have waited so long for this moment,” admits Vipin Batra as he scurries about getting his tall, leggy models to try out his designs. Batra opened the Generation Next designer category on the first day of the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2010 in Mumbai last weekend. “I always dreamt of arriving with my own label,” says Batra. His phone hasn’t stopped ringing ever since March 5, when his alma mater Northern India Institute of Fashion Technology (NIIFT) in Mohali got to know about his debut.

Batra, who hails from Rajasthan, is from the 2004-2006 batch of Knitwear Design Technology. “All that I know of fashion, its techniques and philosophy is what I learnt at NIIFT, Mohali,” he says. His teachers haven’t forgotten him either. “Batra was very hard working and I am glad it all paid off well for him,” says NIIFT Mohali’s director Vijay Sharma.

Designer duo Hemant Lalwani and Nandita Rajpurani, incidentally, are two other successful designers who trained at the institute. About a year ago, he came out with his own label V for Vipin Batra. He took his new line to the Bangalore Fashion Week held in February this year. For LFW, Batra rolled out his Swirls of Life. “I like to experiment with different yarns by creating new textures. For Swirls of Life, I was inspired by the planets and the cosmos,” he says, whose line-up included snug-fitting gowns made of graphic-jacquard knitwear technique. With just Swarovskis for embellishment, Batra played up the line with lots of colour.

The response, so far, has been good. “I have got invitations for Hong Kong Fashion Week as well London Fashion Week. I am thrilled,” he sums up. Vipin Batra has been trying to make inroads into Lakme Fashion Week for over three years and finally made his debut this season.

Vipin says, “I was so excited to get this opportunity to show my work to a larger audience with Lakm Fashion Week – Summer/Resort 2010. I am not one to get afraid of competition, rather I take it as a challenge; it gives me even more strength to push my creativity to the next level. Swirls of Light is the main source of inspiration and one person who I would Love to dress in my signature style is my idol, John Gilliano.”

Have you ever wondered how it is that haute couture fashion houses such as Marni, Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester make money? One possible answer: by being open to opportunities.

Designing uniforms

Earlier this week, the staff at Kensington Palace unveiled their new uniforms, which were designed by high-end British fashion label Jaeger. Won’t be long before Prince William and Kate Middleton can take up residence alongside the gold-trimmed staff.

Antwerp, Belgium-based designer Dries Van Noten may not produce uniforms, but he sure seems to have been inspired by them. Some of his most recent looks have been described as military.

Designing accessories

Dries Van Noten’s peplum pants may have been the talk of Paris during Fashion Week this spring, but one suspects that his shades, which have also been generating a lot of buzz, may outperform the peplum pants at the cash register.

Designing special lines for big-name retailers

Consuelo Castiglioni of Italian fashion house Marni recently designed a capsule wardrobe for Swedish clothing giant, H&M. A capsule collection is a small number of pieces that are meant to be mixed and matched.

In so doing, Marni is following in the footsteps of such designers as Walter Van Beirendonck (who, coincidentally, went to the same Antwerp fashion academy as Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester, another acclaimed Belgian designer. More about Demeulemeester below!)

Like Castiglioni of Marni, Dries Van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester’s co-alumnus, Walter Van Beirendonck designs a line of clothing for a retail chain, Belgium’s JBC.

Unlike Castiglioni of Marni, though, Van Beirendonck’s lower-end line is for children.

Designing special lines for& websites?

Ann Demeulemeester, along with Dries Van Noten, Walter Van Beirendonck and several other young co-alumnni of the same influential Antwerp fashion school, broke onto the fashion scene by driving a truck filled with samples to London Fashion Week. Leave it to her to find a new way to distinguish herself in the fashion world.

In November 2011, Ann Demeulemeester released a four-piece capsule collection for sale online only.

An all-black unisex collection for Christmas time? How very Ann Demeulemeester!

Having their own shop

Ann Demeulemeester has famously refused to work for any of the major fashion houses that have reportedly offered her a job. She has been running her own shop in Antwerp for well over a decade now.

Another purely Ann Demeulemeester specialty?

This designer prefers not to advertise, relying on word of mouth alone.

It seems that in today’s economy even haute couture designers must be creative about how it is that they make money. Because man, it would seem, can not live by peplum pants alone. Marni and Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester and Walter Van Beirendonck, are all examples of labels and designers with an eye to new opportunities in a tough market.

Believe it or not, how your children dress reflects a lot on how the parents bring up their children. If a child is seen walking around with bad clothing, then people walking by may thing that the parents are simply not paying enough attention to the children. As a consequence, the image of the parents may even come under scrutiny, and friends and family may think that the parent is more interested in their own affairs rather than their children. Follow our guide to quickly and easily help give your children’s wardrobe a makeover.

Firstly, do as the tabloids say. The magazine are never wrong when it comes to good dress sense. This does not necessarily mean expensive clothing. In fact, may good ideas have come from a turn of the clothing cycle, meaning that some good items can even be purchased from op shops since the styling has come back. Bring the magazines with you as you go shopping with your children. Try to find an exact match to what is in the magazines. If you are not familiar with style, then it is a good idea to not stray too far away from what is in the picture. Even a different color that you might think looks good, can turn out to be disastrous if you have no fashion sense.

Clothes do no always need to be purchased from the top expensive shops. Remember that after color and style, the fit of the piece of clothing should be the next most important factor. Kids clothing should be comfortable for them, but at the same time, not too baggy and over sized for the stature. Again, we recommend flicking through the magazines to see what is currently in style. No child wants to be seen in last seasons offerings, so it is more important that if you budget is under stress, that you are able to overhaul their wardrobe at least once a year with good quality and medium priced clothing, than high quality and expensive clothing. Kids fashion turns over at the same fast pace as adult clothing, especially for girls.

Remember that clothing is not only a physical factor, but it also influences your children mentally. If they know that they are wearing good clothes which are admired by their friends, then they will also gain some self esteem. Do not put their neck out by buying clothing that is a few years ahead of their fashion time, but keep them balanced with their peers, but still be a few months ahead.

More than 200 players from NBA League have tried the new jersey in training and competition. On the hand, Adidas make careful analysis of the effects of the innovative jerseys, on the other hand, it receive the feedback from players fully. In 2009, all players wear NBA Revolution 30 (try version) during NBA All-Star Game in Phoenix; in 2010,all the players began to wear finalized version of NBA Revolution 30 during NBA All-Star Dallas game.

“NBA Revolution 30 is the most comfortable jerseys that I have worn, it is unnecessary for me to worry about overheating or discomfort in the game”, Lopez, one of NBA players, has said that.

Some statistics show that 1-2% of adults between the ages of 20 and 50 are swingers. So, the next time you are at work, at the mall, or walking around town, know that there is probably another swinging couple around you. The challenge is to know who they are. Swingers are short, tall, black, white, thin, and full-figured. Remaining open to a wide variety of choices is the key to getting the most out of the swinger lifestyle.

With the broad diversity of swingers, the common ground shared by most is that they are committed couples. Successful swinging couples are able to differentiate between sex and love. They understand that an interest for sexual variety does not imply a lack of love for their partner. The swinger lifestyle provides a venue to explore fantasies not typically attainable in a traditional relationship.

In the lifestyle, women are free to explore their inner most desires with full support of their partner. Swinging is not cheating or having an affair. Swinging is about pursuing your sexual desires with other people while remaining committed as a couple.

So, if you do not have a partner, how can singles get into swinging? The good news is that single women have many options to join the lifestyle. Single females are highly sought after. Swinging couples will seek you out and single males are always looking for a partner. Guys are in plentiful supply. This is great for couples looking for another male to join in a threesome as they can afford to be very choosey. Men can enjoy the lifestyle, but they will need to put forth extra effort to be selected.

For men who treat swinging couples and single ladies with respect, they too can enjoy the lifestyle. First understand that in the swinger lifestyle, men are like desserts on a table- only the tastiest ones get selected. That means you need establish a good reputation. If invited for drinks or dinner, get the tab. If you are fortunate to be invited to their home, don’t come empty handed. Offer to bring something or surprise them with a nice bottle of wine. If you are meeting in a hotel, make the reservation and take care of the room charges. Lastly, men, always dress to impress.

If swingers can be almost anyone, how do you find them? Prior to the internet, one had to advertise in limited swinger publications and it was difficult making connections. Today, there are many websites catering to the swinger lifestyle. When choosing a site, select one that supports the entire lifestyle, not just swinger ads. Look for sites that include Interest Groups, forums, profiles, email, instant messaging, parties and events, swinger club directories, swinger stories, and blogs so you can fully explore your sexuality with swinging couples.
