Singularities in Elliptic Boundary Value Problems and Elasticity and their Connection with Failure Initiation

Product : Singularities in Elliptic Boundary Value Problems and Elasticity and their Connection with Failure Initiation
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : This introductory and self-contained book gathers as much explicit mathematical results on the linear-elastic and heat-conduction solutions in the neighborhood of singular points in two-dimensional domains, and singular edges and vertices in three-dimensional domains. These are presented in an engineering terminology for practical usage. The author treats the mathematical formulations from an engineering viewpoint and presents high-order finite-element methods for the computation of singular solutions in isotropic and anisotropic materials, and multi-material interfaces. The proper interpretation of the results in engineering practice is advocated, so that the computed data can be correlated to experimental observations. The book is divided into fourteen chapters, each containing several sections.Most of it (the first nine Chapters) addresses two-dimensional domains, whereonly singular points exist. The solution in a vicinity of these points admits an asymptotic expansion composed of eigenpairs and associated generalized flux/stress intensity factors (GFIFs/GSIFs), which are being computed analytically when possible or by finite element methods otherwise. Singular points associated with weakly coupled thermoelasticity in the vicinity of singularities are also addressed and thermal GSIFs are computed. The computed data is important in engineering practice for predicting failure initiation in brittle material on a daily basis. Several failure laws for two-dimensional domains with V-notches are presented and their validity is examined by comparison to experimental observations. A sufficient simple and reliable condition for predicting failure initiation (crack formation) in micron level electronic devices, involving singular points, is still a topic of active research and interest, and is addressed herein. Explicit singular solutions in the vicinity of vertices and edges in three-dimensional domains are provided in the remaining five chapters. New methods for the computation of generalized edge flux/stress intensity functions along singular edges are presented and demonstrated by several example problems from the field of fracture mechanics; including anisotropic domains and bimaterial interfaces. Circular edges are also presented and the author concludes with some remarks on open questions.This well illustrated book will appeal to both applied mathematicians and engineers working in the field of fracture mechanics and singularities.

Managing Turfgrass Pests, Second Edition

Product : Managing Turfgrass Pests, Second Edition
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Written by three of the top professionals in the turfgrass field,Managing Turfgrass Pests, Second Editionbrings together hundreds of solutions and best practices to help you manage turfgrass weeds, diseases, and insects more effectively. Since the publication of the bestselling first edition, advances in pest-resistant turfgrass cultivars and pest control products have led to significant changes in the ways pests are managed. This revised and updated second edition reinforces those management tactics that are still relevant and covers new approaches that have been introduced since the first edition.The book discusses the concept of integrated pest management, incorporating cultural, biological, and chemical control measures. In particular, the authors emphasize the philosophy of minimizing pests through well-defined and well-implemented cultural systems. Rather than simply relying on a pesticide solution for control, they explain how to fine-tune cultural practices to better address the question of why the pest is present in the first place. Once these cultural practices are in place, any pesticide that is still required will be much more effective at controlling the pest.New in This EditionRevised and updated descriptions of economically important turfgrass pestsRevised and updated cultural approaches to turfgrass pest managementRevised and updated biological methods of turfgrass pest managementRevised and updated chemical control of turfgrass pestsMore than 200 new color illustrationsPacked with photographs, this full-color book provides updated information on best practices and control measures for turfgrass pest management. It also explains how to integrate various management strategies to ensure quality and functional turf. Throughout, the authors offer practical recommendations to help you optimize the competitiveness of your turfgrass against the pests that inevitably become part of any ecosystem.

But I Trusted You: And Other True Cases

Product : But I Trusted You: And Other True Cases
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : The most fatal mistake?Trust. It''s the foundation of any enduring relationship between friends, lovers, spouses, and families. But when trust is placed in those who are not what they seem, the results can be deadly. Ann Rule, who famously chronicled her own shocking experience of unknowingly befriending a sociopath in The Stranger Beside Me, offers a riveting, all-new collection from her true-crime files, with the lethally shattered bonds of trust at the core of each bloodsoaked account. Whether driven to extreme violence by greed or jealousy, passion or rage, these calculating sociopaths targeted those closest to them-unwitting victims whose last disbelieving words could well have been but I trusted you..Headlining this anthology is the case of middle-school counselor Chuck Leonard, found shot to death outside his Washington State home on an icy February morning. A complicated mix of family man and wild man, Chuck played hard and loved many.but who crossed the line by murdering him in cold blood? And why? The revelation is as stunning as the shattering crime itself, powerfully illuminating how those we think we know can ingeniously hide their destructive and homicidal designs. Along with other shattering cases, immaculately detailed and sharply analyzed by America''s #1 true-crime writer, this fourteenth Crime Files volume is essential listening for getting inside the mind of the hidden killers among us.

On Writtenness: The Politics of Style in International Higher Education

Product : On Writtenness: The Politics of Style in International Higher Education
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : The term ''writtenness'' is used to describe highlight a socio-academic criterion that is often taken-for-granted. The trope ''well written'' is widespread but it is rarely very clearly defined and not adequately described by theory. This book redresses that neglect by contextualizing writtenness as a focal issue in the contemporary context of international higher education. The quality of academic writing is often the source of both practical and ethical dilemmas in the academy, while at the same time the social value and productive role of the writing in the communication of knowledge are underestimated. The book interrogates the cultural power and value of writtenness, while also revealing its relative misrepresentation within academic culture at large. The conceptual relevance of writtenness is accentuated in the current geopolitical context of English language dominance, where it is at the hub of both centripetal and centrifugal forces. On the one hand, there is a widespread uniformity in notions of style and accuracy which academic writing is deemed to embody and represent, while on the other, with English as the lingua franca in different academic and geographic contexts globally, and different varieties of English proliferating, writtenness becomes a site of struggle.

Panzer Iii: Hitler's Beast Of Burden

Product : Panzer Iii: Hitler's Beast Of Burden
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : The Panzerkampfwagen III Panzer III was one of the German army''s principal tanks of the Second World War, yet its history is often overlooked in comparison to its more famous successors the Panzer IV, Panther and Tiger. Anthony Tucker-Jones, in this volume in the Images of War series, provides a visual account of the tank in over 150 wartime photographs and describes in a concise text its development and operational history. The Panzer III was designed as part of Hitler''s re-armarment program in the mid-1930''s and played a key role in the German blitzkrieg offensives in Poland, France and the Soviet Union. Although it lacked adequate firepower and could not match more advanced Allied tanks like the T-34, it stayed in service in North Africa and on the Eastern Front and it was still encountered in action in Normandy towards the end of the war. Its reliable chassis was also adapted for assault gun production. In this form, as the Sturmgeschtz III, it took part in the defensive battles fought by the Wehrmacht as it retreated in Italy, France and eastern Europe. Anthony Tucker-Jones''s selection of photographs show the Panzer III in every theater of the war and at every stage, and his text gives an insight into the design history and fighting performance of this historic armored vehicle.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Born with cerebral palsy, Geri Jewell inspired a generation of young people when she became the first person with a disability to appear in a recurring role on prime-time television, with her groundbreaking character, Cousin Geri, on the NBC sitcom The Facts of Life.The book''s title - I''m Walking As Straight As I Can - has a double meaning, referring to both Jewell''s sexuality and her extraordinary struggle growing up with cerebral palsy. This candid memoir details her experiences from her traumatic birth in Buffalo, New York, to her rise to stardom as a stand-up comic to becoming a television star. She documents the harsh realities of show business by recounting the relentless discrimination and abuse she suffered at the hands of people she trusted. Her experiences in the shark-infested waters of Hollywood led her on a journey from the Comedy Store to the White House, followed by a downward spiral, tax problems, drug addiction, marriage, and an accident that nearly claimed her life. When Deadwood creator David Milch recognized Jewell at a pharmacy, he offered her a role in his new HBO series on the spot, and she began to find hope and happiness once again. I''m Walking As Straight As I Can is an inspiring story, told with grace and self-deprecating humor, one that gives listeners a rare glimpse of true courage and perseverance.

The 2012 Nomination And The Future Of The Republican Party: The Internal Battle

Product : The 2012 Nomination And The Future Of The Republican Party: The Internal Battle
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : The 2012 Republican nomination process went on longer than most pundits predicted early on. While Mitt Romney began the season as the prohibitive favorite, he was tested repeatedly by what was seemingly the Republican flavor of the week (including Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum). The sheer number of candidates who were viewed as legitimate contenders demonstrate the fundamental concern facing Republicans moving forward: a fractured party. The pro-business, Tea Party, and evangelical Christian wings disagreed in 2010 on who would provide the best alternative to Democratic President Barack Obama and as a result created a crippling nomination period. By the time Romney was able to claim victory, he was severely wounded after countless attacks from his fellow Republicans. To this internal discontent, we can also add the changing national demographics that could lead to electoral problems for Republicans in their own right. Consider that Mitt Romney did better with older, white male voters than John McCain had. Unfortunately, the share of the national vote for this demographic decreased from 2008 to 2012. As Rand Paul stated recently, the time has come for Republicans to reach out to individuals who do not fit the stereotyped Republican image if they have any hope of being successful. In this volume, we assess how the 2012 GOP nomination cycle is indicative of just how the Republican Party has become, in the words of pundit Cuck Warren, a Mad Men Party in a Modern Family World.

But it does so through a collection of 24 interviews with batterer program founders and leaders who have been working in the field for 25 to 35 years. In the process, it answers many of the misconceptions and misrepresentations of batterer programs, and highlights their contributions and development. It also offers recommendations to researchers and the field in general that would help strengthen the work overall. More specifically, the book is a follow-up to the author''s research-oriented book, The Future of Batterer Programs: Reassessing Evidence-Based Practice (Northeastern University Press, 2012). That book critically reviewed the research on batterer programs in light of the demand for documentation of program effectiveness and documented the effective role of batterer programs in an intervention system. It also exposed the need for evidence-based practice research to include the feedback, interpretations, and critique of practitioners who have their own evidence to contribute. In Gender-Based Perspectives on Batterer Programs, a summarizing introduction and conclusion on leadership frame the set of leader interviews. The collection of interviews represents an archive of the experience and wisdom of long-term workers in the field-many of whom are on the verge of retirement. This database should help researchers develop more meaningful studies, and ground research results in actualities of the work. Ideally, the interviews will also help practitioners realize their commonalities and better represent themselves to their critics and public in general.

Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : You may have been surviving all these time. It is high time you started living-not just living but enjoys life. It is about time that the new version of you emerges. Happiness comes from knowing that your life is not stagnant and that, at each phase of life, you are evolving into something new and fresh, which brings joy and zest to your life. True happiness comes from the realization of the joy within, rooted in discovering and knowing who we are. What we possess or long to be doesn’t define us. Our true identity lies deep within us.Many people struggle with unhappiness, identity crises, hurt and pain and yet they still have to continue to live, expecting to be perfect in their relationships, to fulfill obligations at work, and so on. No one cares to be patient enough to see through the outer covering and reach out to help them. We can’t really blame anyone. Everyone has got their cross to carry. That is one of the reasons I wrote this book—to do it yourself and to help yourself find the happiness you deserve.Do you have a longing—a search for identity—and a yearning to discover who you really want to be? That is another reason I wrote this book. Trust me, I have been there. I am not just giving theory. I am introducing you to the practicality of my journey to happiness.Are you ready to love yourself enough to take actions required for your happiness? Reading this book is one of the best decisions you made this year.

Description : To those who think they know him, Ryan Brassard appears to be your average guy—a guy with a 9 to 5 job who enjoys reading books, watching TV, dining out, and discussing politics and popular culture with his friends. However, your average guy doesn''t agree to watch his only sister commit suicide; he isn''t the secret proprietor of The Suicide Loft, a macabre, yet lucrative sanctuary for the suicidal-at-heart; he doesn''t treat his friends as though they were characters in a made-for-TV movie; and he isn''t obsessed with finding the right method to kill himself.But this is the real Ryan Brassard.And he''s far from average.Fourteen months after watching the life drain out of his sister''s delicately sliced wrists, Ryan finds himself in Toronto, intent on using the city and some new friends to help him create the illusion he lives a normal life until deciding how he wants to die.As his obsession with suicide slowly devolves into a type of madness, making it increasingly difficult for him to trust his senses and maintain his façade of normalcy, Ryan discovers he''s not the only person keeping secrets, that each of his new friends also leads a double life.Although the discovery catalyses intense bouts of revelation and remorse, Ryan is unable to begin his quest for restitution without first coming face to face with the disturbing realization that everything—and everyone—may not appear exactly as shown. Cronenberg meets Coupland in the exhilarating debut from this gifted new writer.

Description : Contemporary Hinduism: Ritual, Culture, and Practice illuminates the modern-day ritual, range, and reach of this ancient and diverse religion. A brief historical overview is followed by discussions of the oral and written origins of Hinduism that give context for the main emphasis--contemporary thought, practice, and key issues. Unique to this work is the consistent attention given to the practice of Hinduism for both men and women. What roles do caste and gender play in modern Hinduism? How are issues like ethics and the environment approached? What are the differences between urban and rural Hinduism, fundamental and secular Hinduism? To what countries has this religion spread, and how do the beliefs and practices of their people compare and contrast? Essays written by Indian and Western scholars answer these and other intriguing questions, introducing readers to the whole world of living Hinduism rather than the perspectives and traditions of a small elite.

Description : In Faery Seership the truths we seek can only be found within ourselves, within nature, and within our relationships to nature. At the center of the Faery Tradition lies the Tree of Enchantment: the symbol for these relationships and for the threefold life of humanity. At each level of the tree, there are attending spirit forces that vary from beings of light to beings of shadow, from the ancestors of humanity to the architects of form and nature, from the destiny of our planet to the creation forces of the universe. The tree’s roots grow through the lower world, where all life originates and the dead travel, its trunk and lower branches reach out across the middle world, where elemental forces and the four directions guide us, and its highest branches reach the into the upper world and the Star realm. Weaving together folk tradition and extensive academic research, Orion Foxwood has created an accessible, beautifully written pathway into the Old Religion of Faery Seership.

Behavioural And Morphological Asymmetries In Vertebrates

Product : Behavioural And Morphological Asymmetries In Vertebrates
Category : Books>Science and Nature>Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : This volume grew out of the 2nd International Symposium on Behavioral and Morphological Asymmetries, which took place in St. Petersburg (Russia) in September 2004 at the St. Petersburg State University under the patronage of the St. Petersburg Society of Naturalists. The Symposium is the descendant of a satellite event with a similar name of the 4th World Congress of Herpetology (December, 2001, Bentota, Sri Lanka). While the 1st Symposium (see special issue number 3 for 2002 of the journal, Laterality) covered only asymmetries observed in amphibians and reptiles, the second one had a broader scope. Three years passed since the Sri Lanka meeting and there was sustained and increasing interest in vertebrate lateralization in the scientific community, especially in lower vertebrates, or at least, in nonmammalian models. This supported not only by the collection of talks at the Symposium, but also by current publications in international periodicals. Talks here were substantially biased towards the lower vertebrates and birds, while reptiles remained to be studied in more detail. Two important rationales were considered for the Symposium and the volume, which you have in hand. The first was to bring together topics and specialists representing different branches of the relatively broad field of research of animal asymmetries. The contributions focused on three main subjects: (1) development of structural and functional asymmetries constituted; (2) evolution and adaptation; and (3) function. Aiming for a broader range of topics, the Symposium may still show the current perspective. The increasing number of contributors (twice as many as at the Sri Lanka meeting) give at least a hope that it was indeed so. We, however, further invited authors, who although not present at the meeting itself, nevertheless could contribute to the book to finalize its shape. The other purpose of this volume is to expose Western scientists to Eastern thoughts regarding laterality, and vice versa. We aimed also to help Russian scientists with limited resources and access to the international journals the chance to publish in the Western literature. It seemed to us that this is a fine and perfectly acceptable approach, which on the other hand explains some of the unevenness in the quality and the style of the different manuscripts. Taken together, these fourteen Chapters, we believe, display a variety of the most interesting and intriguing topics within the broad field of animal lateralization, showing the perspectives of its developments. Far from complete, the volume nevertheless is a state-of-the-art book, which complements a bulk of recent literature on genetics and developmental studies of asymmetries of the heart and other inner organs, interhemispheric specialization in human subjects, and fluctuating morphological asymmetry in animals.

Breathwork can also be used to resolve old traumas and shapeshift unproductive modes of thinking in order to move beyond them. Utilizing the healing power of breath along with chakra-attuned music, Linda Star Wolf explores the Five Cycles of Change--the Alchemical Map of Shamanic Consciousness--and how these cycles affect you as you move through major shifts in your life. Filled with personal stories and case histories, the book also includes a 70-minute CD of shamanic trance rhythms and a guided meditation to awaken the chakras during practice.

The Scarlet Letter (Barnes & Noble Classics Series)

Product : The Scarlet Letter (Barnes & Noble Classics Series)
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : The Scarlet Letter, by Nathaniel Hawthorne, is part of the Barnes & Noble Classics series, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. Here are some of the remarkable features of Barnes & Noble Classics:New introductions commissioned from today''s top writers and scholars Biographies of the authors Chronologies of contemporary historical, biographical, and cultural events Footnotes and endnotes Selective discussions of imitations, parodies, poems, books, plays, paintings, operas, statuary, and films inspired by the work Comments by other famous authors Study questions to challenge the reader''s viewpoints and expectations Bibliographies for further reading Indices & Glossaries, when appropriateAll editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences—biographical, historical, and literary—to enrich each reader''s understanding of these enduring works. America’s first psychological novel, Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter is a dark tale of love, crime, and revenge set in colonial New England. It revolves around a single, forbidden act of passion that forever alters the lives of three members of a small Puritan community: Hester Prynne, an ardent and fierce woman who bears the punishment of her sin in humble silence; the Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale, a respected public figure who is inwardly tormented by long-hidden guilt; and the malevolent Roger Chillingworth, Hester’s husband—a man who seethes with an Ahab-like lust for vengeance.The landscape of this classic novel is uniquely American, but the themes it explores are universal—the nature of sin, guilt, and penitence, the clash between our private and public selves, and the spiritual and psychological cost of living outside society. Constructed with the elegance of a Greek tragedy, The Scarlet Letter brilliantly illuminates the truth that lies deep within the human heart.Nancy Stade is trained as a lawyer and has worked in the federal government and the private sector. She currently lives in Mexico, where she is working on a novel.

Category : Books>Health and Well Being>Self Help
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Selling is the second oldest profession, often confused with the first! The notion of selling carries a lot of baggage. As it has developed, sales has often become a fear-based relationship. Customers are afraid that they will be sold a bill of goods, or that a salesperson will talk them into something that doesn''t help them succeed. On the other hand, salespeople fear they won''t make the sale. If they lose enough sales, they won''t make quota, and they won''t personally succeed. In their quest to close the deal, even some of the world''s largest, quota-crazed organizations have, at times, developed a reputation for salespeople who are illusive, ignorant, and arrogant. Buyers don''t trust sellers. Because they aren''t trusted, sellers have to guess, and often guess wrong. Buyers prove themselves right and create higher hurdles. And so it goes, with neither client nor consultant achieving success. Helping Clients Succeed(TM) is fundamental to the success of any business. This program teaches the listener to become totally client-focused, break down the barriers of dysfunctional business development, and find rewarding, productive business relationships. With honesty, clarity, and authenticity, Mahan Khalsa cuts through the nonsense and focuses on getting results and helping clients succeed.

Romans: The Divine Marriage: A Biblical Theological Commentary

Product : Romans: The Divine Marriage: A Biblical Theological Commentary
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Synopsis:I. Howard Marshall described Tom Holland''s groundbreaking Contours of Pauline Theology as a remarkably fresh and creative study which makes one rethink familiar passages in new ways, while Anthony Thiselton remarked that many of its arguments offer corrections to widespread misunderstandings of Paul.Here in his new study the insights of Holland''s former work, with its central New Exodus paradigm, impact radically upon earlier readings of Paul''s Letter to the Romans, revealing that these readings were controlled by eclectic methodologies that have in varying measure obscured the message of the biblical text.Those who have already encountered Contours will be eager to discover how a corporate reading of the Apostle Paul''s greatest contribution to the New Testament unfolds, and how--to highlight but one issue--a forensic sense of justification is to be maintained in the light of a broader covenantal context.Many readers will be amazed that yet another study of a biblical text that has been subjected to so many fingertip searches in the past can yield such fresh evidence. All in all, Tom Holland''s new commentary will not only affect the way one reads Romans, it will change the way that one looks at the Bible as a whole.Endorsements:As the subtitle indicates, Tom Holland''s Romans is truly both biblical and theological, as the letter is set firmly in its unfolding canonical context. Holland shows how Romans contributes to our understanding of God''s covenant arrangement with humankind. The commentary digs deeply into current scholarship on the Old Testament roots of Paul''s teaching, yet presents its conclusions in accessible language.-Douglas MooBlanchard Professor of New Testament, Wheaton College Tom Holland always remains alert to the influence and relevance of the Old Testament and emphasizes the impact of Paul''s thought upon the church as a community as well as on the individual as part of that community. Above all, Tom Holland deploys his scholarship to produce a very salient and practical commentary.-Anthony C. ThiseltonProfessor of Christian Theology, University of NottinghamThis vigorously argued commentary seeks to allow Old Testament themes and thought patterns, not misguided scholarly conventions, to control Romans'' message . . . Scholars of Romans will be stimulated by interaction with this canonically alert, creative, and frequently contrarian exposition and synthesis of a Pauline classic.-Robert W. YarbroughAssociate Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity SchoolAll agree that Holland has moved the debate on Paul decisively forwards and that a significant counter-proposal to the proponents of the New Perspective on Paul has been launched.-Peter Wilkinsonauthor of Open Source TheologyIf there is intellectual integrity in the evangelical world, I am convinced this reading of Romans will win the day eventually.-Colin Hamerauthor of Finding God''s Will: Reaffirming the Sufficiency of ScriptureAuthor Biography:Tom Holland is Head of Biblical Research at the Wales Evangelical School of Theology. He leads an international team of theologians who are establishing fresh insights into the biblical writings. He is author of Contours of Pauline Theology (2004), an internationally acclaimed work.

In Safe Hands: Bullying Prevention with Compassion for All

Product : In Safe Hands: Bullying Prevention with Compassion for All
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : As suicide continues to be one of the leading causes of death among children under the age of fourteen, and as recent bullying statistics report a strong connection between bullying, being bullied, and suicide, it is time for society to set aside its obsession with grade-level benchmarks, test scores, and Blue Ribbon Schools, and instead demand that our students achieve the academic successes they deserve by ensuring that they are educated in schools that are intellectually, socially, and emotionally safe. In Safe Hands: Bullying Prevention With Compassion for All is a hands-on blueprint to helping schools, parents, and the community at large address and solve the problem of bullying. This compelling examination of bullying includes real life examples and activities for implementation. The fact that the program introduced in this book was developed-not in response to the obvious and increasing need for bullying prevention and intervention in schools, but merely as a model of how all schools can educate children in safe educational environments-is what differentiates this book from other bullying prevention books on the market today.

Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Sharatchandra Chattopadhyay has been the most popular writer of novels and short stories in his native Bengaland in India at large. Despite this, he remains unrecognized in the English speaking world. Narasingha P. Sil fills this void by presenting a historical critical assessment of his upbringing and the experiences that influenced his masterful and magnificent work. The Life of Sharatchandra Chattopadhyay rescues the authentic man, a caste-conscious and patriarchal Brahmin of colonial Bengal, from the cuckoo land of gratuitous praise and panegyric showered on the Aparajeya Kathasilpi, the invincible wordsmith. The author exposes Sharatchandra''s innate conservative worldview and his romantic platonic concept of human sexuality that inform all his love stories. In many respects Sharatchandra resembles his formidable European forbear, Jean Jacques Rousseau of Enlightenment France. The concluding chapter of Sil''s biographical study introduces this pioneering comparison between the two men-a veritable tour de force.

Operation Whisper: The Capture of Soviet Spies Morris and Lona Cohen

Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : Meet Morris and Lona Cohen, an ordinary-seeming couple living on a teacher’s salary in a nondescript building on the East Side of New York City. On a hot afternoon in the autumn of 1950, a trusted colleague knocked at their door, held up a finger for silence, then began scribbling a note: Go now. Leave the lights on, walk out, don’t look back.Born and raised in the Bronx and recruited to play football at Mississippi State, Morris Cohen fought for the Loyalists in the Spanish Civil War and with the U.S. Army in World War II. He and his wife, Lona, were as American as football and fried chicken, but for one detail: they’d spent their entire adult lives stealing American military secrets for the Soviet Union. And not just any military secrets, but a complete working plan of the first atomic bomb, smuggled direct from Los Alamos to their Soviet handler in New York. Their associates Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who accomplished far less, had just been arrested, and the prosecutor wanted the death penalty. Did the Cohens wish to face the same fate? Federal agents were in the neighborhood, knocking on doors, getting close. So get out. Take nothing. Tell no one.In Operation Whisper, Barnes Carr tells the full, true story of the most effective Soviet spy couple in America, a pair who vanished under the FBI’s nose only to turn up posing as rare book dealers in London, where they continued their atomic spying. The Cohens were talented, dedicated, worldly spies—an urbane, jet-set couple loyal to their service and their friends, and very good at their work. Most people they met seemed to think they represented the best of America. The Soviets certainly thought so.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 1
Description : “Denim was freedom, denim was the biggest dream,” says Renzo Rosso of the early days of Diesel, the casual denim brand that he launched in 1978. Today, Rosso stands at the helm of OTB, the fashion group that encompasses Diesel, Maison Margiela, Marni, Viktor & Rolf, Staff International, and Brave Kid. These companies are connected by the same streak of rebellion that has marked Rosso’s own career—a sense of going against the grain and a commitment to creation that goes above and beyond commercial restraints. Each embodies Rosso’s mantra, “only the brave, challenging the rules, fostering creativity,” and promotes, first and foremost, the proud label of fashion “Made in Italy.”OTB 60: Radical Renaissance traces the evolution of the group from the founding of Diesel to the present, exploring how each of the brands marries craftsmanship with industrial production. Featuring photography from the most eye-catching campaigns and groundbreaking runway shows, this volume introduces the worlds of fashion visionaries from Rosso himself to Martin Margiela, Nicola Formichetti, John Galliano, Consuelo Castiglione, and Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, making it a must-have for any fashionista.

One of these expansions has been in comics, and it is an expansion that pushes back against any postmodern notion of the death of the author/subject, while also demanding new approaches from critics.Drawing from Life: Memory and Subjectivity in Comic Art is a collection of essays about autobiography, semiautobiography, fictionalized autobiography, memory, and self-narration in sequential art, or comics. Contributors come from a range of academic backgrounds including English, American studies, comparative literature, gender studies, art history, and cultural studies. The book engages with well-known figures such as Art Spiegelman, Marjane Satrapi, and Alison Bechdel; with cult-status figures such as Martin Vaughn-James; and with lesser-known works by artists such as Frédéric Boilet.Negotiations between artist/writer/body and drawn/written/text raise questions of how comics construct identity, and are read and perceived, requiring a critical turn towards theorizing the comics'' viewer. At stake in comic memoir and semi-autobiography is embodiment. Remembering a scene with the intent of rendering it in sequential art requires nonlinear thinking and engagement with physicality. Who was in the room and where? What was worn? Who spoke first? What images dominated the encounter? Did anybody smile? Man or mouse? Unhinged from the summary paragraph, the comics artist must confront the fact of the flesh, or the corporeal world, and they do so with fascinating results.

Written in the successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

10 Must-Have Holiday Party Dresses To Get You Through The Season
Posted on Thursday November 16, 2017

Amidst holiday parties, the preparation of feasts, and a glut of friends and family to purchase gifts for, it's hard to tell if the holidays are the most wonderful time of year or the most stressful.

You have enough on your plate as it is; the last thing you want to concern yourself with is finding a dress for all those holiday celebrations. Sometimes you just wish someone would do the work for you.

Well, you're in luck! We've curated a list of 10 must-have holiday party dresses that will dazzle your colleagues, friends, and family. And just like Kate Middleton, we encourage repeat outfits at multiple parties if you're seeing different friend groups.

1. Babaton Giovani Dress

This low-key LBD is versatile, but more importantly, it's comfortable. One of the worst things about getting dressed up is having to strap yourself into a body-constricting outfit. Babaton's Giovani dress is made of ponte fabric, so there's give, but also enough structure so you can show off your figure.

Where to get it:Aritzia, $125

2. Privacy Please Brisco Mini-Dress

The mustard-tone trend continues to thrive and we're happy to oblige with this metallic mini-dress, featuring flutter sleeves and a waist-cinching belt. Be warned: this dress demands attention, so don't be surprised when you're swarmed with compliments.

3. Twik Ruffle Tartan Dress

Holiday parties are not complete without some red tartan! The traditional Scottish pattern is always a festive choice. The ruffle hem on this affordable option from Quebec-based brand Simons adds a little extra sass to a timeless print.

Where to get it: Simons, $49

4. Paillette Party Midi Slip

Wearing sequins can be dicey, but we can only marvel at this berry slip dress from Free People that turns heads for all the right reasons.

Where to get it: Free People, $125.44

5. Limited Edition Velvet Dress

Sophistication comes in the form of this holiday-appropriate dress from Spanish retailer Massimo Dutti. A simple silhouette is made spectacular with the addition of cut-out bow sleeves and a stand-out colour. This limited-edition dress will be gone in a blink if you don't act fast.

Where to get it: Massimo Dutti, $275

6. Glittery Velour Dress

If you're looking for something on-trend and affordable, look no further than H&M's festive holiday dress options. This glittering velour mini dress can even be dressed down and worn with denim.

Where to get it: H&M, $59.99

7. Ultimate Tux Blazer Mini-Dress With Pearl Buttons

The menswear trend lives on and we wouldn't have it any other way. This tuxedo-inspired dress from ASOS is great for the no-nonsense party-goer.

Where to get it:ASOS, $57.06

8. Flowing Midi Dress With Long Sleeves

This festive emerald green midi dress from Zara offers everything we love about vintage cuts and details without having to sift through racks of clothing at our favourite vintage boutique.

Where to get it: Zara, $99.90

9. Velvet Winston Shift Dress

Has Reese Witherspoon ever let you down? The stylish actress launched her own clothing line, Draper James, and offers up this sweet velvet-and-lace combo we can envision the Oscar winner rocking.

Where to get it: Draper James, $250

10. Yumi Kim Save Leading Lady Dress

Not all holiday parties are created equal. If you're headed to a fancier affair, you'll need a dress to suit the occasion. This Yumi Kim lace dress featuring a regal mock neck collar, tonal lining and scalloped edging hits the perfect balance of sophisticated and sexy.

Where to get it: Shopbop, $275.29

Winter Boots That Look As Good As They Feel
Posted on Tuesday November 14, 2017

While some parts of the country have already been hit with a coating of snow, it won't be long before all of us Canadians will be trudging through slush, sleet, and icy rains.

If, like us, you're shivering at the thought of Mother Nature's frosty weather, then it's time to seriously consider your winter boot options.

Below are a selection of our favourite winter boots to ensure a season of toasty warm tootsies without sacrificing style.

Kamik Sienna Waterproof Boot

While the rustic outdoorsy styling of the Kamik Sienna boot (Meghan Markle is a fan of the Canadian heritage brand) initially caught our eye, the Thinsulate insulation and lightweight, slip-resistant soles solidified this pair's spot on our list.

Furthermore, Kamik is committed to sustainable manufacturing, with a zero waste target in their plants, 73 per cent domestic production, and a recycling program in place.

Bhava Aspen Hiker

The eco answer to the traditional shearling-lined hiker, this vegan pair from conscientious footwear brand Bhava features Italian vegan shearling and a comfort flex rubber sole, artisanally crafted in Spain and road tested on the tough city streets of New York City.

Vans SK8-HI MTE

For the sneaker-head who refuses to wear boots, these weatherized high tops could be the perfect compromise for facing the elements. Designed with warm linings including a heat retention layer between sockliner and outsole, and a lug sole tested for maximum traction, this sneaker/boot hybrid also features reinforced toecaps to ensure long-wearing durability.

Manitobah Waterproof Tamarack Mukluk

Rated up to -32C, the Tamarak Mukluk features rubber soles displaying Indigenous artwork that details life energy and connection to nature, and uses traditional waterproofing methods.

Committed to supporting Indigenous communities, Manitoba Mukluks invites its customers to direct a portion of their sale to a Manitobah community program of their choice.

Bogs Kettering Boot

While slip-on boots may rate well with the five and under set, sometimes us adults also need an easy fix when we're running out the door in extreme temperatures. Enter the Bogs Kettering boot: rated from temperate to -30C, these boots feature a pull-on handle, Neo-Tech Lite insulation, a moisture-wicking lining, and an insole with odour-resistant technology in every urbanite's favourite colour, black.

Khombu Andie Waterproof Boot

We love the look of the Fair Isle print and the faux fur trim on the Andie Boot from Khombu, perfect for chalet getaways or stylish trips within the city. Not just about looks, this practical boot is waterproof, micro fleece-lined, with Thermolite insulation and a memory foam footbed.

Cougar Creek Waterproof Winter Boots

The festive styling of these cute-as-a-button Creek Winter Boots from Cougar is getting us in the mood for trekking around town and the countryside. We can't wait to slip into the plush lining and padded insole, knowing the rubber sole and waterproof outer will keep our feet warm and dry.

Giuseppe Zanotti Snow Boots With Faux Fur

The everything après ski boot, these killer cuties from Giuseppe Zanotti are styled with a faux fur cuff and metallic plate to cover the Velcro ankle strap. Can't you picture Mariah Carey wearing these babies in Aspen?

Hunter Boots Original Snow Boots

From the brand that brought us iconic rain boots comes this winter-resistant snow boot, complete with a zipped outer shell and drawstring detailing to keep out the cold. Neoprene-lined with a padded sole to minimize ankle slipping, we can't wait to face the elements in these beauties.

Joe Fresh Knit Snow Boots

The latest snow boot from Joe Fresh, this classically cute style is 100 per cent synthetic, with a faux fur lining and pretty knit, ideal to keep you warm and winter-adventure ready.

Roots Nordic Boot Warrior

These gorgeously rugged boots from iconic Canadian brand Roots are available for both men and women, and are designed to withstand severe cold and icy conditions while keeping your feet cozy and dry.

Aquatalia Kiara Boot

Take things up a style notch with this stunning boot from Aquatalia. Shearling-lined with waterproof outer, this is our pick for pairing with leggings or tights over the chilly winter months.

The North Face Women's Thermoball Lace Winter Boots

We love the contrast of the bright laces against this neutral grey winter boot, made of 100 per cent recycled materials. We think the fleece collar lining, Thermoball insulation, and OrthoLite footbed make this simple boot a comfy way to weather the winter.

Pajar Waterproof Winter Boots

Get ready to take on winter in style with this rugged pair of waterproof boots from Pajar. We love the look of the textured, fold-down collar, while the grips on the soles give us peace of mind on icy city sidewalks!

Lupita Nyong'o Has No Time For Magazine's 'Eurocentric' Airbrushing
Posted on Friday November 10, 2017

Lupita Nyong'o.

Even though it's 2017 and women of all cultures and backgrounds are finally being celebrated for their diverse beauty, it seems that not even an Oscar winner can get away with having natural hair.

On Thursday night, actress Lupita Nyong'o took to social media to criticize Grazia magazine for cutting off, and smoothing out, her curly hair.

Posting photographs on Twitter and Instagram, the 34-year-old "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" star showed what she looked like before and after the editors used Photoshop on her image.

In the before pic, Nyong'o is seen rocking a curly ponytail, while in the after pic, the actress' ponytail is gone, replaced with a smooth, super short crop.

In the caption, Nyong'o explains that the magazine clearly photoshopped her image to "fit a more Eurocentric notion" of beauty.

"Disappointed that @GraziaUK edited out & smoothed my hair to fit a more Eurocentric notion of what beautiful hair looks like. [don't touch my hair]," Nyong'o wrote on Twitter.

In a lengthier Instagram post, the "Black Panther" star wrote that it's important that women of colour be embraced for their beauty, "kinky, coily hair" and all.

As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women's complexion, hair style and texture. #dtmh

I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too.

In a statement to The Telegraph, a representative of Grazia magazine apologized to the actress for changing her hair type and noted that they didn't "alter" the image. (Even though they clearly did.)

"Grazia is committed to representing diversity throughout its pages and apologises unreservedly to Lupita Nyong'o.

"Grazia magazine would like to make it clear that at no point did they make any editorial request to the photographer for Lupita Nyong'o's hair to be altered on this week's cover, nor did we alter it ourselves. But we apologise unreservedly for not upholding the highest of editorial standards in ensuring that that we were aware of all alterations that had been made."

After Nyong'o posted her criticism, social media turned out to support the actress.

This incident is far from the first and only time the beauty industry has airbrushed women of colour to fit a specific (namely white) ideal.

Just recently, Solange Knowles called out The London Evening Standard for altering her braids in an image that appeared on the publication's cover. Subsequently, the Standard apologized to the singer for digitally removing her hair.

dtmh @eveningstandardmagazine

A post shared by Solange (@saintrecords) on

In a statement, the Standard said: "The decision to amend the photograph was taken for layout purposes, but plainly we made the wrong call and we have offered our unreserved apologies to Solange."

In that cover story, Solange described how important braiding was to her, noting, "It is an act of beauty, an act of convenience and an act of tradition."

Tabria Majors Proves Plus-Size Models Look Good In Victoria's Secret Underwear Too
Posted on Thursday November 09, 2017

Brooklyn, N.Y.-based model Tabria Majors is challenging rigid fashion standards after recreating a series of her favorite Victoria's Secret photos.

Victoria's Secret is facing stiff new competition from a plus-size, Brooklyn, N.Y.-based model.

The idea that the lingerie company largely showcases thinner models didn't sit right with Tabria Majors.

She scoured through her favourite outfits from Victoria's Secret to prove, as she says, "that curvy girls can rock (and sell) lingerie just as well as straight-size models."

The breathtaking photos she posted on Instagram and Twitter speak for themselves.

"Maybe I'll be a Victoria's Secret Angel this year for Halloween, since it ain't happening in real life," she wrote in an Instagram post on Oct. 31.

"I've been thinking about doing this for a while, and the pieces happened to come together," she said in an interview with HuffPost Canada. "I really want to open the discussion of inclusivity in mainstream media."

Majors said that the Victoria's Sercet has been a staple for decades but they have been repeating the same formula over and over.

"I just want to know why they, and so many other companies, don't cater to the average-sized woman."

It boggles the mind that higher-ups at the lingerie company won't include more plus-sized "angels" among the skinny ones the brand is famous for. Tip: Diversity sells. Literally.

"The main argument I've heard is that it's expensive, time-consuming, and companies don't have the proper resources to expand their sizes," Majors said.

Majors says plus-size industry is lucrative

"I personally don't believe that, primarily because the plus-size industry brings in billions of dollars each year, and the potential profit companies would make should counter any of their hesitations."

However, Sports Illustrated has definitely taken notice of Majors.

The model is currently a finalist for SI's Swim Search, where 15 women will debut their swimwear line and compete for a chance to be featured in the 2018 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.

She's even bragged about her weight online to make it clear she is damn proud of how she looks.

"I'm Tabria Majors, I weigh 218 pounds, and I don't care if you hate my body because I love it," she wrote on Instagram in August.

And in doing so, she's joined famous plus-sized model and body-positive advocate Ashley Graham in fighting the weight stigma.

A post shared by Tabria Majors (@tabriamajors) on

She's not the first to post shots of herself beside ads to highlight the lack of diversity — black model Deddeh Howard recreated a series of famous ads last year.

Androgynous model Rain Dove also reimagined Victoria's Secret shoots by Photoshopping their models' faces onto her body with the original image of herself beside them.

Hopefully, they'll understand that everyone ... shouldn't be 'punished' for their size.Tabria Majors

But she says major companies have to stop hesitating to showcase plus-size models.

"I'm sure there's an underlying reason that we're not aware of," Majors said. "Whether it's associated with costs or the company's image, but hopefully, they'll understand that everyone should be able to purchase any style of clothing, and shouldn't be 'punished' for their size."

Anyone at Victoria's Secret taking down notes?

These models are trying to bring you into the revolution. Stop missing it.

Oprah Gives Her Stamp Of Approval To This Canadian Sleepwear Company
Posted on Wednesday November 08, 2017

Oprah Winfrey arrives at the taping of 'Queen Sugar After-Show' on November 7, 2017 in California.

Everyone knows Oprah's stamp of approval is gold, which is why we can't help but freak out at the fact that the talk show queen has named a Canadian sleepwear company as one of her favourite things.

This year, The Sleep Shirt, a Vancouver- and Montreal-based sleepwear company, made the TV host's famous list. Specifically, Oprah noted the Blue Oxford Stripe Shirt as one she would wear as a stylish addition to a day outfit or for simply lounging at home.

"One of our editors wore this oxford cotton sleep shirt to the office with sandals and looked terrific," the 63-year-old revealed. "I'd relax in it at home or wear it as a cover-up. There might even be a few people who'd actually sleep in it."

Naturally, Sleep Shirt creator Alexandra Suhner-Isenberg was thrilled when she heard Oprah's positive review of her nightwear.

"She's such an influential figure, and there hasn't been a single person who hasn't been like 'oh my god' when we tell them the news," the designer told Flare. "To be recognized by such a major person and influencer is so great."

A post shared by Oprah (@oprah) on

Suhner-Isenberg modelled her nightwear after a 19th-century chemise she found at a vintage menswear store in London. She then founded her company in 2012 and has been creating stylish, oversized unisex sleepshirts ever since.

And thanks to the sleepwear trend, the designer's clothes have only been gaining in popularity over the years. Besides Oprah's list of favourite things, The Sleep Shirt has also been featured on Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle site, Goop.

Back in 2012, Suhner-Isenberg told the Vancouver Sun, "In terms of why people love them, we haven't reinvented the wheel, and you can find other brands that do night shirts, but we're known for them, and it's a great product."

Plus, if it's Oprah-approved, you know it's gotta be good!

Faux Fur And Fur-Free Winter Coats And Accessories That'll Keep You Warm This Winter
Posted on Friday November 03, 2017

Luxury giant Gucci's announcement last month to go fur-free in 2018 marks another inspiring step towards cruelty-free and conscientious fashion practices.

While fur is traditionally considered a common option for warmth in cold weather, numerous brands are making the choice to offer synthetic weatherproof fabrics and faux fur details to satisfy the demand for the functionality and aesthetic appeal of a fur coat or trim.

Stella McCartney has long sat at the helm of this movement, and Net-a-Porter announced in June that they would no longer be selling fur on their website, proving that the fashion industry doesn't need to harm animals to look chic.

Whether you want to invest in ethical, cruelty-free products, or are simply looking to stay stylish and warm, we're certain you'll find something to suit your liking in our roundup of fur-free and faux fur winter coats, jackets, hats, and scarves.

1. Frank And Oak Featherless Parka

The latest addition to the endlessly hip Queen Street West strip in Toronto, Frank And Oak offers more than up-to-the-minute style at reasonable prices — we recently discovered their parkas are proudly down-free (this parka in particular uses Thinsulate), and there's not a fur collar in sight.

2. Stella McCartney Fur Free Fur Coat

The OG of ethical practices and sustainable designs, Stella McCartney's #FurFreeFur Elina Coat is the ultimate in animal-friendly luxury. Impeccably designed and beautifully made, we're adding this faux fox fur coat to our dream wish list!

3. The Gap Denim Faux Fur Parka

Trust the Gap to do winter warmth right in denim. We're making a mad dash for this indigo parka with faux fur trim for a trendy transition towards the colder months.

4. Aldo Faux Fur Pom Pom Hat

We're happy to see a cruelty-free take on this trendy toque. This Aldo "Albenise" hat offers some stunning sparkle topped with the softest splash of faux fur.

5. Topshop Luxe Faux Fur Coat

What's not to love about this soft-as-a-bunny faux fur coat from Topshop? We'll be topping our party sparkles and LBDs with this little stunner throughout the season.

6. Lolë Morgan Jacket

Whether you're a bonafide ski sensation or more of a chalet aficionado, this bright jacket from Lolë will have you looking and feeling your best on the slopes. We're fans of the waterproof fabric, bright watermelon hue, and mesh-lined vents under the arms to keep us warm and dry.

7. Aritzia Faux Coyote Fur Pull-Through Scarf

BRB, rushing out to buy this gorgeous silk-lined, faux coyote fur scarf. Whether you're rocking the everyday glam look, or saving this piece for a truly special occasion, this is one winter accessory that you're going to want to own!

8. Old Navy Faux Fur Shearling Vest

We've gotta have this waist-length faux fur shearling vest from Old Navy. It would look stunning styled with jeans and a long sleeve tee, or popped on over a long floral dress to add a seasonal update to a summer favourite.

9. Joe Fresh Herringbone Coat

This grey herringbone coat makes our list for a classic topper that's long on style but won't break the bank. Leave it to Joe Fresh to cover all the necessary details (funnel collar, zip front with snap button closure for extra warmth!), perfect for a stylish transition from day to night.

10. Joe Fresh Hooded Puffer

Nothing says winter is here like the return of the puffer coat. Canada's signature staple for fighting the cold has seen several evolutions from the Michelin Man likeness to this stylish version from Joe Fresh. We love the slim fit and bum and thigh coverage, making our daily run to the dog park/school/grocery store that much more bearable.

11. Wully Outerwear Doe Parka

Serious about stylish outwear and animal kindness, Wully's website keeps a running total of how many animals are saved by shopping #CrueltyFree. We're obsessing over their women's Doe Parka: weatherproof, multiple pockets, and the cutest Canadiana red plaid lining. What more could we want to stay warm this winter?

12. Lululemon Run Fast Gloves

Leave it to Lululemon to make the perfect gloves with all the features: snap closure to keep the pair together, fold top for extra warmth, and sweat-wicking super soft fabric for winter runs or snowball fights.

13. Hoodlamb Ladies' Nordic Nightwatch Parka

Our pick for all-black-everything winter warmth, this 100 per cent vegan parka from Hoodlamb boasts a luscious faux fur removable trim, hemp and organic cotton outer shell, and a Thermore and EcoDown lining, designed to resist extreme cold in full weather resistant chic.

14. One Teaspoon Heartshaker Faux Fur Coat

With a little bit of rock 'n roll and a whole lot of vintage styling, we're voting this patchwork faux fur jacket with vegan leather trim an absolute showstopper.

15. Vaute 'The Lincoln Future' Coat

We can't wait to bundle up in this cozy full-length coat made of 100 per cent recycled, windproof, snow resistant ripstop, and insulated with Primaloft ECO, also made of 100 per cent recycled fibres. Customer reviews claim this coat is a game changer for those of us who don't exactly love winter and we'd have to agree: a drawstring hood, internal belt, and ribbing at the cuffs, as well as a pretty princess cut make this coat a winter wardrobe essential.

The 2017 Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bra Is Here, And It's Fantastic
Posted on Thursday November 02, 2017

It's that time of year again.

Halloween is over, there's a hint of festivity in the air, snow dare we say is on the way, and it's all leading up to the one magical moment merrymakers young and old look forward to all year: The Victoria's Secret Fashion show.

The highlight of the show, the Fantasy Bra, was revealed Wednesday, and, as expected, it's fantastic.

The bra, designed by world-renowned jeweler Mouawad, is valued at US$2 million and is set by hand with nearly 6,000 gemstones: diamonds, yellow sapphires, and blue topaz in 18 karat gold, Victoria's Secret revealed. It took 350 hours to create.

Model Lais Ribeiro will wear the 2017 Champagne Nights Fantasy bra for the first time on the runway, Victoria's Secret announced Wednesday.

Ribeiro, 27, is the fourth black model to don the bra, Teen Vogue reports. Tyra Banks wore the bra in 1997 and 2004, Selita Ebanks had the honour in 2007, and Jasmine Tookes rocked the runway in last year's version.

Being chosen to wear the Fantasy Bra is a career-making moment for a Victoria's Secret runway model, also known as an "Angel," according to Refinery29.

Ribeiro is "beyond honoured," she wrote on Instagram.

"I am very happy and thankful for my Victoria's Secret family for trusting me and all the support from my on family, friends and fans," Ribeiro said.

I'm sorry but the pictures will just keep coming! 😜

The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show airs Nov. 28.

The new collection will feature bras, underwear and lingerie in shimmering champagne shades.

What The Heck Is In Halloween Makeup Anyway?
Posted on Friday October 27, 2017

Unknown ingredients in Halloween makeup may spook you, but with some helpful tips and expert advice, painting your (or your little one's) face, this All Hallows' Eve will be a treat.

Narrowing down who or what you'll transform into is one problem, piecing the look together is another. But when it comes to things like face paint or makeup, it's worth spending a bit more on high-quality products to guarantee a safer experience for you and your kids.

Earlier on HuffPost:

In a study by the Breast Cancer Fund in 2016, 48 Halloween face paints were tested — all of which are marketed to kids. They found 21 of these products had trace amounts of at least one heavy metal, while some products contained as many as four metals. Some of these harmful ingredients included styrene, formaldehyde, lead, cadmium and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as toluene and benzene.

"You should buy the products at established costume stores, not pop-ups that open only for a few weeks before Halloween, or at your pharmacy where costume makeup kits are inexpensive, but are generally poorer quality," says Dr. Sandy Skotnicki, assistant professor at the University of Toronto and medical director at the Bay Dermatology Centre.

In this case, the more expensive the makeup the better quality, as it's not likely mass-produced."

When shopping for Halloween makeup, avoid any flimsy packaging with small amount of products (like those paint sets with numbers on them) — these tend to be products that are created for just the season.

"As dermatologists, we usually tell patients face creams that cost more are not that much better for your skin. But in this case, the more expensive the makeup, the better quality as it's not likely mass-produced," Skotnicki says.

Skotnicki also suggests avoiding any products that contain lead and ensuring the product has been vetted by government agencies. But you don't have to panic over things like dyes in face paint, since FD&C grade dyes are found in everything from lipstick to cake mixes. Simply, read the label.

The most common ingredients found in cheap makeup that could irritate the skin include alcohol, fragrances, artificial dyes, mica (which gives shimmer), glue, adhesives, waxes and oils.

Applying glue to bare skin doesn't require a dermatologist to tell you that this may cause a bad reaction.

Certain fluorescent or luminescent dyes can also contain colour additives that many not be government-approved, and that fake blood? It is made of a red dye that could cause irritation if it reacts with a petroleum base, notes healthcare site Vermont Urgent Care.

"Let your kids have fun and of course, use common sense. Applying glue to bare skin doesn't require a dermatologist to tell you that this may cause a bad reaction."

Skotnicki recommends testing a small amount of product on your child's ear a few days before if you want to ensure there are no allergies or irritations, and avoid adhesives and glues altogether on children under the age of two.

"Irritants are cumulative — it does not have to be one thing, it can be all together that cause the irritation and I would argue that is usually the case," Skotnicki said. "Another way of putting it — it is not the eye shadow, it's the eye shadow and eyeliner, and eyelashes all working together to cumulatively cause a reaction."

For makeup and special effects artist Samantha St John, Halloween is celebrated everyday in October. Her 28,000 followers on Instagram can expect scary (and sometimes gory) looks with her 31 days of Halloween posts. From split skulls to gouged-out eyes, St John's looks require safe products and an attentive skin care routine.

"My favourite things to use are water-activated paints for body art; silicone and alcohol paints for my special effects," explains the Vancouver-based artist.

I always use some type of barrier cream to create space between the prosthetic and my skin.

"Removal is the most important part... I always use some type of barrier cream to create space between the prosthetic and my skin, and I also make sure to safely remove adhered pieces."

St John recommends Telesis 5 remover and Isopropyl Myristate for heavier looks and prosthetics. For body paint, she uses the Franklin & Whitman's cleansing serum. St John also recommends avoiding latex, as it is a common irritant.

If using makeup from your personal collection on your trick or treaters, Courtney Kelly, beautyBOUTIQUE Manager for Shoppers Drug Mart says avoid sharing any eye products like mascara or eyeliner, and avoid using glitter around the eyes. Sanitize all lip products with rubbing alcohol before and after you use them.

As for your own costume, Kelly recommends playing with makeup already in your cosmetics bag.

The rise in popularity of colour correctors also means you may have some non-traditional colours at home.

"The great part of this is you already know whether or not the product works for you so you avoid any issues the night of," she said.

"The rise in popularity of colour correctors also means you may have some non-traditional colours at home that you can use as face paint instead of buying a new product."

To avoid any skin nightmare the following morning, use the golden rule when it comes to makeup and skincare — take it all off. Kelly recommends Dermablend Milk Makeup remover.

"Even if you get home late, don't forget to remove all of your eye makeup and apply a moisturizer before bed. Your skin will thank you in the morning."

You've Been Washing Your Face Wrong This Whole Time
Posted on Friday October 27, 2017

We get it — you want beautiful skin (who doesn't?), but your morning skincare routine usually consists of splashing some water on your face in between sips of coffee, or standing under the shower head and hoping for the best.

Thoroughly cleansing your skin is more important in the evening, anyway, when you want to remove all traces of that day's makeup and grime, right?

Wrong, according to a dermatologist.

Taking the time to properly cleanse your skin in the morning is just as important, dermatologist Natasha Cook told Daily Mail Australia this week. A simple "wash and go" isn't going to cut it.

"Cleansing in the morning is good to prepare for your application of your daily serums and skincare," Cook said.

It will act as an effective base and prepare your skin for that day's makeup application, she added. And taking care of your face, morning and night, is the key to a clear complexion, Cook said.

Dermatologists recommend a gentle cleanser.


Choosing the right cleanser is key


"The single biggest mistake I see people making is choosing the wrong cleanser," Cook said.

The Canadian Dermatology Association (CDA) recommends choosing products that are unscented or fragrance-free, do not contain common allergens, are non-comedogenic, and have a low potential for irritation. Brands such as Marcelle, Avene, and Garnier have products that have earned the CDA seal of approval.

It's also important to keep in mind your skin type when you're removing your makeup, dermatologist Julia Carroll previously told HuffPost Canada. Products with alcohol should be avoided by anyone with sensitive skin, Carroll said, and oil-based makeup removers should be avoided by those who break out easily.


What about double-cleansing?


Double-cleansing, or washing your face twice in one sitting, isn't always a bad idea, especially if you're wearing a lot of makeup or sunscreen, Cook told The Independent.

Double-cleansing can tackle different types of impurities.

Just be wary of over-cleansing, since that can irritate the skin and make acne worse, Cook said. She recommended using micellar water to pre-cleanse, and then use a gentle formula cleanser.

Micellar water is made up of tiny balls of cleansing oil molecules suspended in soft water.

"The idea is that micelles are attracted to dirt and oil, so they are able to draw out impurities without drying out the skin," dermatologist Hadley King previously told HuffPost. "Therefore, micellar water can be used as a facial wash, makeup remover and moisturizer all in one."

Issa Rae Is Proud To Represent Black Women For CoverGirl
Posted on Wednesday October 25, 2017

Issa Rae attends Black Girls Rock! 2017 at New Jersey Performing Arts Center on August 5, 2017.

Being a CoverGirl ambassador means a lot to Issa Rae.

When the 32-year-old actress revealed she would be the new face of the brand in September, she noted how, as "an awkward black girl in high school," she would see the beauty giant's ads in magazines and sing their slogan in her head.

But now that the shock of her new title has worn off (sort of), Rae revealed her pride in being able to represent women who look like her.

"[When it happened] I called my mom, I told my friends, and they were all super excited," she told Cosmopolitan in a recent interview. "To see the response that people had, I felt even more validated and more touched. It showed the support out there and that the news struck a chord and that people feel represented in a way that they hadn't before."

People feel represented in a way that they hadn't before.

A quick look at Twitter proves that people are loving the brand's decision to make the "Insecure" star one of their spokesmodels, not only because she's an inspiring role model, but because she represents women of colour too.

CoverGirl has made noticeable efforts to be more diverse and inclusive as of late by not only adding more women of colour to their list of ambassadors, such as Rae and Ayesha Curry, but by also including older spokesmodels, such 69-year-old Canadian beauty Maye Musk.

As a result, even Rae has applauded the brand for being more inclusive.

"Becoming a CoverGirl means a lot because the brand recognizes just how important it is for people to embrace their individuality and express themselves in unique and diverse ways," the 32-year-old said in September. "This has been a major part of my personal journey, and a message that I want to share with others."

The World's First Lesbian Bridal Magazine Is Finally Here
Posted on Tuesday October 24, 2017

It is 2017, after all.

As an Australian couple launches the world's first lesbian bridal magazine a glossy, photo-filled celebration of love called Dancing with Her the internet is saying "finally."

The magazine, which officially launched Tuesday with its first print edition, comes just as Australians are in the midst of voting on whether same-sex marriage should be legalized.

Nearly 12 million Australians, or three quarters of eligible voters, have mailed in their ballots so far, Reuters reports. The government has said it would put a proposal before parliament if a majority vote "yes." That would make Australia the 25th nation to legalize same-sex marriage, according to Reuters.

Dancing With Her is a creative, inclusive and real wedding publication for women who have been left underrepresented for too long.Tara Baker and Arlia Hassell

Same-sex marriage has been legal in Canada since 2005. Since then, the number of same-sex couples in Canada has increased by 60 per cent, according to Statistics Canada. About one per cent of all couples in Canada are same-sex couples.

Founders Tara Baker and Arlia Hassell who celebrated their engagement in 2016 created the magazine to fill the gap they discovered while trying to plan their own nuptials in a hetero-normative wedding industry, they write on the Dancing With Her website.

The couple is "passionate about diversity within wedding media, and as two women in love, want to see that represented in wedding material," they said.

"Dancing With Her is a creative, inclusive and real wedding publication (print magazine and online blog) for women who have been left underrepresented for too long."

Dancing With Her is a celebration of women in love, according to the magazine's tagline.

It boasts over 100 pages of real wedding stories, editorials, a wedding-planning journal, and a directory of vendors across Australia and the United States.

And, of course, there are the beautiful photos splashed across the magazine's Instagram page ahead of the launch.

Kelly Clarkson Says Body Image Pressures Caused Her To Have Suicidal Thoughts [UPDATED]
Posted on Tuesday October 24, 2017

UPDATE: Kelly Clarkson responded to reports that she contemplated suicide while battling body image pressures to be "really skinny." On Tuesday, the singer clarified her remarks on Twitter:

Earlier on HuffPost:

No celebrity is exempt from body image pressures, including Kelly Clarkson.

In a new interview with Attitude, the 35-year-old singer got real about the self-image struggles she faced after being catapulted into stardom following her 2002 win on "American Idol."

"When I was really skinny, I wanted to kill myself," she told the British magazine. "I was miserable, like inside and out, for four years of my life. But no one cared, because aesthetically you make sense."

Clarkson revealed that she was pressured by executives to keep her body image on par with pop stars like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera during her first years of fame.

"It was a very dark time for me. I thought the only way out was quitting," she said. "I like wrecked my knees and my feet because all I would do is put in headphones and run. I was at the gym all the time."

Kelly Clarkson sings after winning 'American Idol' on Sept. 4, 2002.

By the time Clarkson released her third studio album, My December, in 2007, she had had enough. Not only did she channel her struggles into her music, but she decided to get rid of the negative people in her life.

"There's a song on My December called 'Sober.' There's this line 'picked the weeds but kept the flowers' and I just live my life by that because you are who you surround yourself with," she explained to the mag.

I was around some really negative people, and I got out of it because I had a lot of great people there too.

"I was around some really negative people, and I got out of it because I had a lot of great people there too," she continued. "It was a case of turning around, facing them and walking toward the light."

Clarkson has been open about her body image issues in the past, and in 2007, she revealed to CosmoGIRL! that she battled bulimia for six months in Grade 7.

Kelly Clarkson arrives at Variety's Power Of Women: Los Angeles on October 13, 2017.

In the 15 years since she first won "American Idol," the mom-of-two has come a long way and found self-acceptance with her body.

Last week, while giving a private performance in New York to debut her new song, "Whole Lotta Woman," Clarkson told the audience, "Too skinny, too fat, too blonde — so much blah. This is who I am and I'm happy. Happy looks different on everyone."

She later elaborated her thoughts on body image to the Daily Mail, saying, "The media has always been obsessed with [my size]. And I have felt conflicted over the years. Do you address it? Do you talk about it? Because then you just add to the noise.

"But people like me to talk about it, so I don't really mind carrying that flag. I love that people come up to me and say: 'Because you are comfortable in your skin, you have made me more comfortable in mine.' That's the best compliment ever."

16 Cruelty-Free Beauty Brands You Can Find In Or That Ship To Canada
Posted on Tuesday October 24, 2017

Those of us who are socially conscious animal and beauty lovers know how hard it can be to find ethical, cruelty-free beauty products.

Not only do many of the big beauty brands out there (including Estée Lauder, Avon, Clinique, Maybelline, and L'Oreal) still test on animals, pay for animal testing in China, or commission/contract animal testing, but there are laws in Canada that allow beauty companies to test on animals.

Undated file photo of rabbits being held in stocks during eye irritancy tests for cosmetics.

But the good news is that on Oct. 4, the Senate Standing Committee on Social Affairs, Science and Technology unanimously voted in favour of S-214, the Cruelty Free Cosmetics Act. This bill would prohibit not only cosmetic animal testing in Canada, but also the sale of cosmetic products or ingredients that have been newly testing elsewhere in the world, reports the Animal Alliance of Canada.

The proposed legislation will move to debate and a final vote in the Canadian Senate, and if the bill passes, it will move to the House of Commons.

Here in Canada, [animal testing] remains perfectly legal for cosmetic chemicals to be dripped into rabbits' eyes and spread on their delicate skin, all for the sake of a new lipstick and skin cream.

"Cosmetic testing on animals is an outdated, needless practice with no place in a modern and progressive society," Troy Seidle, Humane Society International's (HSI) senior director of research and toxicology said in a statement. "Yet here in Canada, it remains perfectly legal for cosmetic chemicals to be dripped into rabbits' eyes and spread on their delicate skin, all for the sake of a new lipstick and skin cream."

The alternatives to these methods, notes the New England Anti-Vivisection Society (NEAVS), include using donated human cells and tissues in vitro, computer simulations and genetic testing.

According to a poll conducted by Animal Alliance and HSI, 81 per cent of Canadians support a national ban on cosmetic animal testing.

Anita Roddick of the Body Shop and comedian Alexei Sayle challenge the Cosmetic, Toiletry & Perfumery Association to back an EU ban for cosmetics testing on animals in London.

So how can you tell whether a beauty product is cruelty-free? For starters, check out the lists of brands on PETA, Cruelty-Free Kitty, Logical Harmony and Leaping Bunny.

PETA also has a searchable database, so if you're unsure whether the product you're interested in is cruelty-free, you can just type in the name of the brand and PETA will do the work for you. Meanwhile, Cruelty-Free Kitty, Logical Harmony, and PETA also have lists of companies that do test on animals.

DIY Halloween Costumes That Are Creepy AF
Posted on Monday October 23, 2017

There are some who enjoy playing dress up and going all out for Halloween, and we are among those Halloween-loving people. The best time to be the scariest version of yourself is October 31st and you don't need a pro to help you scare the bejesus out of someone.

Here are 15 creepy AF looks to inspire your inner demon.

1. Billy the Puppet from "Saw"

This is a relatively easy tutorial. To pull off Billy the Puppet from the "Saw" and "Jigsaw" movies, simply paint your face white and use black makeup around the eyes. Use red paint to make circles on the apples of the cheeks. Finish the look with red lipstick, followed by a faint black line from the corner of the lips to the chin. Voila!

2. Regan from "The Exorcist"

To be the possessed girl from "The Exorcist," all you'll need is a little face paint to mark scratches over your face. Use a sponge with green paint for that gross stuff around the lips, get yourself a flowered nightgown, and you're good to go.

3. "Black Swan"

This is another look that looks both amazing and creepy. Use white face paint and black liner for the eyes. You can fill in the eye makeup with white eyeshadow and use a shade of burgundy on the lips.

4. Samara Morgan from "The Ring"

Samara from "The Ring" is creepy AF. You'll just need a brunette wig and drawn-on cuts and bruises over your face. Put on some contacts and stain those teeth for a wicked grin.

5. Uncle Fester from "The Addams Family"

A post shared by Siena Wanlass (@swanhorns) on

Uncle Fester is another easy one to master. Just draw black circles around the eyes, find a high-necked black shirt and give a wide-eyed look all night long.

6. A devil

A post shared by Naomi (@namglam) on

For some red devil glam, paint the face red and use shimmery black shadow for the eyes. For an extra sinful look, pair your lips with red shimmery lipstick.

7. The nun from "The Conjuring"

What you'll need for this look is white face paint and use black face paint around the eyes. Then start drawing faint lines as wrinkles. Use some contour to define the cheekbones and the smile lines. And finally, add black lipstick and then smudge it around the lips for a creepy look.

8. "The Corpse Bride"

For this "Corpse Bride" look, paint your face, neck and shoulders with blue colour, even the brows. Then use black paint to create a high brow point. Use fake lashes and contour the nose and cheekbones. Apply pink lipstick and get a blue wig to complete the look.

9. Pennywise from "It"

To scare the living daylights out of anyone, go for the iconic clown. Simply paint your face white and use red lipstick or paint to enhance the lips. Extend the lip lines upwards from the corners of the mouth to the eyes. Oh, and don't forget the red nose. Then give your best creepy smile all night long while whispering, "You'll float, too."

10. Edward Scissorhands

This one requires a lot of contouring for that Johnny Depp look. You can start by using black paint for cuts over the face. Get a wig for that messy hair and use a touch of burgundy on the lips.

11. Chucky

A post shared by Jess Mcdonough (@jesskatmcd) on

To be the iconic Chucky from "Child's Play," just put a few stitches on your face and you're a serial killer on the loose. You'll only need red, black and white paint to create this look.

12.Princess Ahmanet from "The Mummy"

For Princess Ahmanet, you'll need black paint to draw ancient symbols across your face. Use black eyeshadow around the eyes and over the lips. To be extra, you can paint double irises over your lids.

13. The Joker

The Joker is a classic and you'll be the most wanted psycho at the party. Buy yourself some white face paint, red for the lips and slight black shadow under the eyes. Dye your hair green (or grab a green wig) for that extra creepy look.

14. "Game of Thrones"

A post shared by Anahy (@glassjawbabe) on

This "Game of Thrones" look might take some more time, but it's well worth it. If you have fishnet tights, cut out a piece to use as a stencil for the snakeskin print over the forehead. Use black shadow for smoky eyes and for lining the lips. You'll also need black shadow for contouring the cheekbones.

15. Sugar skull makeup

This one's easy — you'll just need a lot of face paint colours. Start by painting the base white and add blue circles around the eyes. Then use a paintbrush to draw designs over the face.
