Abloni (Alexandre Oktan, Canada, 2005; 52 min) In a variety of styles, exploring a vast range of locations, and entering into the lives of a colorful cast of characters, Abloni reveals how the second hand clothes business creates a livelihood for a whole chain of wholesalers and retailers; how it supports charities and recycles waste products in rich countries; how it destroys the textile industries and traditions in poor countries; how it revolutionizes style and fashion in places as far away as a small village in central Togo; how wearing the simplest bit of clothing like a second hand shirt from Canada becomes, in an African village, a political, economic, and cultural statement; and how it has led, too, to the birth of a new hybrid African style, creatively mixing western fashions and local textiles and patterns.

I support law enforcement. However, I don't condone injustice. To arrest and physically abuse a peaceful, disabled veteran, aka a citizen, was a travesty of justice. If the police wanted to make a point, they could have served the so called perpetrator with a summons. Law enforcement officers let drunks on the beach drive away to kill a predestrian. I observed drug dealing, like it was an ice cream truck selling pops to kids in the neighborhood. Why isn't a police presence evident there, where crime is so rampant? Are they too fearful of the potential danger? I never see law enforcement on University Parkway. Maybe if it was more prevalent, a kid on a bike would be confronted by a patrol car before being hit by a truck. police, re evaluate your priorities. Don't cower to the wrath of the few affluent downtown snowbirds and residents. Take back the city. Go after the bad guys who deal drugs and murder innocent citizens. Wouldn't that be a more rewarding accomplishment? Larry FogelVandalism, not speech I'm trying to understand how the ACLU can defend defacing public property as a freedom of speech issue. How can the police be put on the defensive when they do their job in removing a public nuisance who defied their direction to stop writing graffiti on the sidewalks in the center of town? As I see it, whether Chris Young is a veteran or not, the police acted appropriately in restraining and handcuffing him when he refused to stop writing chalked slogans and resisted officers' attempts to have him leave the area peacefully. Mike Barfield, representing the ACLU, claims "this is about as pure a free speech issue as you can get." This has nothing to do with freedom of speech! The police are charged with protecting the public interest, which is exactly what they were doing in stopping and removing Young from as pure a case of vandalism as you can get. Barfield is off base in intimidating and insulting our public servants in carrying out their responsibilities. Al MarcusGovernment kept honest A Feb. 24 column about the Baltimore Orioles seems to take gratuitous and misdirected aim at Citizens for Responsible Government. SCRG provides a valuable service to this community by paying attention to what is going on with our local governments and by calling them to account when rules are not being followed. The Orioles and Cal Ripken Jr. issues are among the many areas in which SCRG has exposed questionable practices. It has been involved with resolving the local term limits question, the county procurement scandal and the energy economic zone, and we can be grateful that it will continue to monitor the actions and policies of local governments. We are, after all, a nation of laws, and neither county administrators nor elected officials are above those laws. As we discovered during the procurement scandal, rules and regulations were regularly ignored and the result has been extremely unfortunate. Instead of shooting the messenger, let's support the efforts of those such as SCRG who work for the interests of this entire community. Local governments recently spent millions of dollars fighting Mosaic Phosphate's Hardee County mine expansion before they threw in the towel and gave up. Fortunately for our community, three environmental organizations persisted in the effort and managed to obtain an agreement that achieved major environmental and resource protections that will benefit us all. We owe a debt of gratitude to the many organizations such as SCRG that toil on our behalf and at no cost to us. William C. Zoller I read in shock in the Feb. 24 paper the sentence imposed on Kim Leto in the hit and run accident which killed Brenden Barnes and seriously injured his best friend, Samuel Garvin. I am a retired educator and a firm believer in people getting a second chance to rectify their mistakes, but this lack of a sentence imposed with jail time reinforces the cynicism many feel toward our system of justice. To have her attorney say there was nothing Leto could have done to help Brenden, after the impact threw him 100 feet, shows a callousness of the value of human life and compassion. The bottom line is she evaded responsibility by fleeing the scene of an accident she caused to happen. My heart goes out to Brenden's family and know there are many out here thinking of them and the tragic loss. I wonder, if the young man killed had been related to the judge or defense attorney, would they have reacted differently. Gamma Blue 12s,Your toddler threw one of his sneakers out the window sometime in the last hour of driving. The heel on your favorite pumps snapped in a sewer grate. And the dog has a knack for chewing just one from each pair. (Note to puppy: "Jimmy Choo" is not a command!) So what's a shoe lover to do? When faced with orphan shoes, don't be so quick to toss them in the trash. Get ready to reuse and upcycle.

Just like that you have a sexy bookend or doorstop. 2. Orphan Shoe = Hammer I'm ashamed to admit this, but I've used a heeled shoe for a hammer several occasions. Thicker heels work best, and don't even bother with shoes with a rubber sole hard sole is your friend. So next time you need to hang a picture or make a quick repair, grab that orphan shoe and hammer away. Just don't tell your husband or father. (Trust me.) 3. Orphan Shoe = Garden Decor and Planters Colorful shoes are a perfect match for your whimsical garden. Orphan pumps and flats make great planters for sweet annuals, while sandals work well with creeping vines. Or just place a shoe in an unexpected place for chic ornamentation. 4.

Add a couple of "legs" and lay them against your house on Halloween for the perfect reenactment of the scene in which the Wicked Witch of the East gets a house dropped on her. (Note: If you happen to have an old plush snake hanging around, cut it in half for bewitching green legs. Otherwise, stuff some green tights.) 5. Orphan Shoe = Haute Decor A well made, beautiful shoe is a work of art, so why not treat it as such? Add a bright or sculptural shoe to a shelf, table or windowsill for a hit of the unexpected.

Discount Gamma Blue 12s,Air Jordan 6 Retro Olympic 2012 Odors from shoes are really bothersome, most especially if it is from your favorite pair of shoes. But don't fret, because there are various ways to prevent and remove odors from footwear. Start with your feet. To prevent odors accumulating in your shoes, first start with clean feet. Make sure your feet are clean and fresh before wearing shoes. It is important to wash and dry your feet properly to avoid bacteria breeding in your shoes. You might also have to use foot powder to keep your feet dry. Use baking soda. Baking soda is one of the most effective ways to remove odor from shoes. All you need to do is spread baking soda inside your shoes and leave it there overnight. You can simply shake out the baking soda before wearing your shoes the next day. Use disinfectant products. There are a lot of disinfectant spray products available in the supermarket, and these are also available in different scents. Disinfectants are effective because these attack the odor causing germs from your shoes, rather than just the bad smell. All you need to do is spray the disinfectant inside the shoes before and after wearing. Do this every day, to prevent bacteria from building up. Wash your shoes. Wash your shoes regularly, if necessary. This is applicable to shoes that can be washed, like runners, sneakers, and anything made of washable fabric. To wash your shoes, you can use shoe bags specifically made for washing shoes in the washing machine. These will help protect your shoes from being damaged while spinning. Or, you may also scrub your shoes by hand, with liberal use of detergent. Make sure to brush your shoes and rinse thoroughly. Wear socks. If you are fond of wearing sneakers, runners, or even loafers, make it a habit to wear socks. These help absorb moisture, and therefore prevent bacteria buildup. When buying socks, choose those made mostly of cotton material, so your feet can breathe. Using socks mostly made of nylon or other non breathable fabric might only make the odor problem worse. Use Orange peel. Orange peel is also a good shoe freshener. You can leave orange peels inside your shoes overnight to help remove odors and kill bacteria. Use foot powder. Foot powders are specifically made to address odor problems. Be sure to use the powder regularly. You can apply foot powder both on your feet and inside your shoes before wearing. You can also apply foot powder inside your shoes after wearing, to absorb any moisture that may have built up during wear. Wear your shoes alternately. Wearing a different shoe every other day could help eliminate odor from shoes. Let your shoes rest for a day or two. It will prevent any build up of odor and will help keep your shoes fresh. Keeping your feet fresh and dry is usually the most important step in eliminating odors from shoes. If you wear socks most of the time, make sure your socks are washed and dried properly, too. Keep moisture under control, and this will also keep odor away. Gamma Blue 12s Should your child get ear tubes? Parents of young children may be all too familiar with the ear aches, ear infections, and middle ear fluid build up that can plague their little ones. For many of these children, ear tubes, known clinically as tympanostomy tubes, may be the best treatment. But until now, there has been no clinical guideline to advise doctors and parents on which children should or should not receive them. A multidisciplinary panel associated with the American Academy of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery Foundation(also known as AAO HNSF) has changed that, releasing new guidelines on Monday. got the number one ambulatory surgery in kids, the number one reason they are given anesthesia, and no national society has ever published evidence based guidelines about the best way to do this, said Dr. Richard Rosenfeld, a professor and chairman of otolaryngology at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. seemed like a huge deficit, said Rosenfeld, who chaired the AAO HNSF panel. The guideline addresses ear tubes in children ranging in age from 6 months to 12 years. It was written by a panel of specialists that included pediatricians, a nurse practitioner, an anesthesiologist, a speech pathologist, consumer advocates and ear, nose and throat specialists, among others. According to the guideline, children who have very frequent ear infections and who also hold on to fluid meaning their infections don clear up quickly are candidates for ear tubes. However, the guideline says tubes should not be given to children who have frequent ear infections but who do not have fluid build up a major deviation from what typically happens in clinical practice. is one of the most new and significant things being recommended, said Rosenfeld. have to distinguish between the kids whose infections clear up completely and the ones who hold on to fluid. means parents should question doctors on whether their child ears contain fluid, Rosenfeld said. If they do not, according to the guideline, ear tubes should be avoided. In addition, children who have had fluid build up in both ears for more than three months and are experiencing difficulties such as not hearing well in loud group situations or listening to someone speak who is not looking at them a teacher writing on a chalkboard, for example should also be offered tubes, according to the guideline. That also goes for children who have had fluid build up for more than three months in only one year, but whose quality of life is being affected by it, Rosenfeld said. an effect on gross motor skills, on a child balance, he explained. that is affecting your equilibrium benefits from tubes. who are at higher risk for fluid build up related developmental delays should also be given tubes. That includes children diagnosed with autism, permanent hearing loss, Down syndrome or any other developmental delay. The small tubes, about 1/20th of an inch, are placed at the end of a child ear canal while the child is under light general anesthesia. They designed to alleviate any fluid build up by allowing air to pass into the child middle ear to ventilate and eliminate the pressure inside that space. Children with tubes are able to play in the water, swim, and bathe without wearing ear plugs something that isn common knowledge, according to Rosenfeld. Children swimming in water at least six feet deep are the only ones who should be concerned with wearing ear protection, he said. advice is given under the common sense pretense that water can get in to the tube . but that not the case, he said. simply does not pass through a hole that small easily. should not be able to feel the tubes while they have them and over time, they should fall out on their own as wax and debris build up inside the ear. People, please listen. MY kids went through the same thing. One would get it and clear up and the next would flare up. A never ending battle. The constant use of antibiotics was a real concern for me. We were recommended to have ear tubes placed in our two year old as the infections were so common they were worried about her speech development. I happened to overhear a conversation between two doctors at a gym and one was going through the same thing. The other doctor recommended humidity! I went home and added a humidifier into my heating/cooling system and that took care of the issues within days! The difference was astounding! Please, before you resort to surgery, check into increasing the humidity in your home. IF you have central air, AC dries out the air in the summer and Forced hot air dries it out in the winter. The drying leads to dry ear canals which crack and become irritated and infected. The unit i installed is placed in line with the venting. Air coming out of the unit passes through a box that humidifies the air and then returns into the venting. Everything is done right at the air handling unit. It is NOT expensive. I bought a unit at my local hardware store for under $100 and installed it myself. I handy though, and you may need some help, but it is not difficult. It well worth the cost to see f it works before you submit your child to invasive procedures. Happy your simple solution fixed the problem. However, ear infections for which ear tubes are being considered have nothing to do with the ear canals, but rather the middle ear. Any beneficial effect of humidity would have to do with prevention of nasal dryness and crusting, which in some cases might adversely affect Eustachian tube function. As a more general point, although this might not apply to you, I find that people often seem to misunderstand ear anatomy. The eardrum is impervious to fluids of any type. This in fact is why kids and adults sometimes build up fluid in the middle ear. This applies to oils, pool water, antibiotic drops, urine (see below????). My oldest daughter did not have them. We were regulars weekly during winter months the pediatrician office. One morning my husband said, know, we need to just have direct deposit between my checking account and this office. When my son was born, he started having constant ear infections, too. I finally said I had had enough. I talked about it with the nurse in the doctor waiting room. The pediatrician that I asked about ear tubes said that they put scars on a child ear drum I said. The nurse said, that true. But it one scar. Repeated ear infections put many scars on the ear drum. I told the doctor that I wanted to explore putting ear tubes in my son ears. He reluctantly gave me a referral to an otolaryngologist. We had the surgery done. I will have to admit, it was scary handing your crying toddler to people to take them back to surgery, but it was one of the best decisions we ever made health wise for one of our children. My son immediately ceased having the ear infections. Our checking account returned to some semblance of normalcy. When our son got a certain age, they were removed. As a mom, I highly recommend them. July 20, 2013 at 12:11 Report abuse My son had a series of ear infections (5 to be exact) over the course of 3 months at 16 months old. The ENT that our pediatrician referred us to actual thinks it may have been one long, ear infection that never went away. The fluid in his ear got so bad it turned into and the ENT had to remove it during the ear tube surgery. I worried so much about the decision. We even went one more round of antibiotics (his 5th course in those 3 months) to see if it would clear up. Two days after finishing, back comes the fever. The surgery was quick, he recovered very quickly (same day) and he went nearly 2 years without an ear infection and by the time he got his next one, his natural tubes had matured enough that he cleared it quickly. Was a struggle to keep water away but if you are good with drops and prevention, you will be fine. Best thing we done. Wish we done it sooner.

My 16 year old has had tubes 4 times, had them removed once and the holes plugged. He has also had his adnoids and tonsils removed. He still suffers from hearing issues, but very few ear infections. My now 9 year old has had them 3 times and removed and plugged once. He also suffers from hearing issues, but very few ear infections. My wife had tubes three times as a child and suffers ear infections frequently (2 3) a year. I honestly don know if they really did any good compared with the hearing issues now vs. the few ear infections!!

If the Eustachean Tube is abnormally narrow (like mine are) then your ears become blocked much more easily that most people and, therefore, even though you had tubes you still have the repeated issues as soon as your eardrum closes after tubes are removed. I can say that because I have suffered from that for 60 years I had tubes 3 times as an adult AND have had my eardrum rupture 4 times due to fluid build up when I couldn get an ENT that would put in tubes fast enough.
