Do you know how to choose the correct size of the bra? Most women will probably say yes, but research shows that about 80% of women know how to choose the right size. This number brings us to a question: how to know exactly what size of the strapless push up bra fits you? This is why we prepared a short guide to determine the correct size for you.

Choosing begins with chest measurement. It is essential to use a centimeter band. Measure as fix as possible, but without holding it too tight. Always keep the band perfectly horizontal. If you hold it obliquely, the results will not be correct.

To determine the correct size, you need to know the correct size of your breasts. On the other hand, if you choose a traditional bra instead of a strapless backless bra, you will also need to find out what is the circumference under the breasts. Chest circumference is measured in the widest part of your chest, generally over the nipples. For the circumference under the breast, you should measure just below the breasts.

Although at first glance it seems that a strapless backless bra is properly chosen depending on the circumference, it is important to know that there are other factors which play an important role. If you want to choose the best strapless bra for you, make sure that when you measure your breasts the band is neither too large nor too tight. If the base is large, the strapless bra cannot meet its correct function and breast weight will not be supported correctly. This means that your strapless push up bra may not adhere correctly, and you can alter the shape bra, which may result in affecting your breasts.

Also, when you measure, make sure that you keep your back straight. If you bend your back, the backless strapless bra may be too large for you.

First of all, in case youre in any doubt as to How it works, heres how: InvisiBra is basically a sticky bra or stick on bra. The cups are made of medical grade silicon or fabric and theres a clip that holds the cups together. The most important step of the manufacturing process that turns this backless bra into a sticky bra is the process of applying layers of skin friendly adhesive to the cups. We use a superior quality adhesive, which guarantees long term stickiness, for each wear and for a higher number of wears available compared to other brands. A total of 3 layers are applied, by hand, to ensure that there is enough stick to keep the cups secure when worn. So while our sticky bra stays sticky all day, with no maximum number of hours of wear, other brands advertise a limited number of hours, anything from a few to 8 hours. Our stick on bra can be used 100 times, whereas others are one wear only or can be worn up to 20 times.

When choosing a bra is very important to measure carefully! Once you obtain accurate measurements, it is simple to find your appropriate size. Just check the manufacturer stable. If you choose a backless strapless bra from InvisiBra, it is good to know that they also have a measurement table, in order to help you choose the right size of the strapless bra. Moreover, on their site, you also have some tips on how to measure correctly. The products from InvisiBra are currently the best strapless bra on the market, so choosing this online shop is the best option. With numerous strapless backless bra models to choose from, InvisiBra invites you to discover the new comfort of wearing bra. These bras are perfect for any occasion, especially when wearing elegant clothing, but also with your favorite casual outfits.

Radioactive part mistakenly sold, melted with scrap metal in China

Radioactive part mistakenly sold, melted with scrap metal in China

Sunday, March 29, 2009

A highly radioactive lead ball that vanished from a factory in China has been traced to a Shaanxi Province metalworks. The ball was removed during the dismantling of a factory in Tongchuan City.

The component vanished on Monday when workers broke up the Shaanxi Qinling Cement Company’s 53-year-old factory for not meeting environmental standards. The ball contains the radioactive isotope caesium-137 and was part of a scale to gauge the quantity of goods passing on a conveyor belt.

Caesium-137 emits gamma rays which can damage the nervous system, lead to infertility and be fatal. It is formed by nuclear fission.

Investigators thought the missing part had most likely been accidentally mixed in with scrap and sold on to metalworkers. On Friday, high levels of radiation were detected at the Xingbao Steel and Iron Company Ltd. The Weinan City business had bought eight truckloads of scrap metal from the cement factory.

Further investigations determined that the ball had been melted down in the No. 6 smelter at Xingbao’s factory. Slag from the smelter was found to be radioactive, and technicians are now working to clean the toxic slag and the smelter. Xi’an-based Northwest Institute of Nuclear Technology researcher Wang Xuhui stated that the steel products themselves were safe, as the caesium-137 had mostly ended up in the slag.

2,000 face redundancy at English steelworks

Saturday, May 9, 2009

Corus Group, the world’s fifth largest steel producer, announced on Friday that it may be forced to mothball its steelworks in Redcar, England. This move would threaten the jobs of the works’ 1,920 employees.

Corus may be forced to close its Teesside operations as a consortium has refused to honour a 10-year contract with Corus’ Teesside Cast Products, which accounted for 78% of the plant’s operations. Corus’ chief executive, Kirby Adams, said he was “extremely disappointed that the consortium members have seen fit to take this irresponsible action.”

Lord Mandelson, Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform, said “it is essential that Corus does everything it can legally, and with the government’s assistance, to reinstate the agreement”. Gordon Brown, the British Prime Minister, shared this view saying, “We are doing everything in our power to ensure that the contract is upheld.” Mandelson also said “we are not prepared to reconcile ourselves to the inevitable closure of this plant”.

The leader of Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, Councillor George Dunning, said “Today is like being hit by a mini earthquake compared to what’s happened in the past.”

Martin Callanan and Stephen Hughes, Tory, and Labour MEPs for North East England, supported the idea that the government should subsidise wages in the plant on a temporary basis. Hughes and Fiona Hall, Lib Dem MEP, suggested that the government should apply to the EU’s Globalisation Adjustment Fund. Hall said “if the worst comes to the worst and jobs are indeed lost, I trust the Government will change its mind and support an application to the European Globalisation Fund in order to fund skills training for those who have lost their jobs.”

This move could “bring to an end a fine heritage of steelmaking at Teesside”, according to Adams. Steelworks in Teesside, which previously belonged to British Steel and Dorman Long, produced steel for famous structures like the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Corus had said it was likely there would be a “very significant number of redundancies” and a 90-day consultation period is due to begin.

Corus’ owner, Tata Steel, are also facing difficulties with another UK operation, automobile company Jaguar Land Rover.

How Does Your Firewood Stack Up?

By Sam Streubel

Knowing which firewood will give you the best burn for your buck is easy once you learn how the heat values of different hardwoods stack up against each other.

For instance, a cord of hickory will yield the heat equivalent of 146 gallons of #2 heating oil. The heating equivalents, stated in gallons of heating oil per cord for other popular hardwoods are as follows: White oak/135 gals. Beech/130 gals., Red Oak, Hard Maple and Yellow Birch/127 gals., Ash/119 gals., Soft Maple, Black Cherry and Paper Birch/110 gals., and finally Poplar 74/gals.

Very often a cord of wood offered for sale will contain mixed hardwoods. There is nothing wrong with this practice, but the seller should be able to tell you which hardwood(s) predominate.

As you can see from the hardwood heating values, a cord of wood comprised mostly of Soft Maple will burn much faster than a cord of White Oak and is therefore worth less money.

Once you determine the quality of wood you are buying, make sure the quantity meets your expectations. A cord of wood is not a truckload or a pile dumped in your driveway. It must measure 128 cubic feet and measure four feet by four feet by eight feet long when closely stacked.

Some states specifically prohibit the terms “cord”, “face cord”, “pile” or “truckload” from being used in advertising the sale of cordwood or firewood.

The first stacking of firewood is the legal measurement and doesn’t necessarily happen on your property after delivery.

A standard pickup truck full of loose firewood that “should be about a cord” is simply not a cord. If anything, it might be “face cord”, which is roughly one-third of 128 cubic feet.

Get a delivery receipt attesting to quantity sold and stack it tightly and promptly. Measure and take pictures. If the quantity delivered is less than promised, contact your local weights and measures office of the Division of Standards.

Purchase fully seasoned firewood or split your firewood at least six months before use. Keep it off the ground and covered with plastic, allowing air to circulate freely.

Green wood (freshly cut) has less heat value because energy is expended evaporating moisture trapped in the wood.

Repo Car For Sale The Art Of Finding A Real Bargain

Click Here To Find Out More About:

By Deon Du Plessis

When you get to that exciting point of buying a new car, the challenge is most often in making a final decision. There are just so many cars on the market and the sheer amount of ‘deals’ is enough to drive anyone crazy.

One thing is for certain: we all want the best possible deal when we do decide to buy a specific vehicle. Finding a repo car for sale can be the super bargain that you are looking for. Repossessed cars are cars that has been reclaimed by banks and financial institutions under the seized and foreclosure laws. There are many reasons why cars could be repossessed and it is indeed very unfortunate for the person loosing his vehicle. But, one person’s loss can be another’s gain and you can actually buy these repossessed car off the various agencies that lay claim on them.

The sheer amount of cars that are being repossessed on a daily basis puts a huge financial strain on these agencies by simply storing and managing their inventory. They are therefore very keen on selling off these vehicles as soon as possible – and most often at hugely reduced prices. At a repo car auction you can expect to get as much as 90% off the retail value! The only downside off course is that the vehicles are sold ‘as is’ but if you do your homework on the makes and models you are after you can pick up some serious bargains.

When eBay launched it’s online auction site for vehicles most people laughed it off as a crazy idea. Today it has become the largest ‘car dealership’ in the world and probably the biggest automobile marketplace ever created. The internet has opened up a whole new world when it comes to buying and selling cars. I must admit that at first the idea of buying a car online sounded very strange, and almost unthinkable to me, but after a couple of online car auctions my opinion quickly changed as I saw the potential of picking up some serious bargains.

To find a repo car for sale, look no further than online auctions. Online auctions have many benefits to both the agencies selling off the vehicles and the consumers buying them. There is no need for any physical presence, no need for a formal auction setup that can be a huge organization. Speed is the key and along with it some huge savings in the selling process that eventually does get passed down to you and me.

Finding a repo car for sale is not restricted to online auctions. If you are more comfortable with a real life auction, then you have an equal amount of options available. There are some excellent websites that keep up to date databases of the vehicles, the auctions and the auction locations throughout the USA.

Although these repo cars are often in top condition you have to be vigilant. Sourcing a reliable auction or website is critical in not throwing your money down the drain. Many websites out there claim to offer repo cars as an incentive for you to buy. Make sure you use proper repo websites that actually do offer great deals on genuinely repossessed cars and make sure you are well aware of the going rate of the vehicle that you are after. Believe it or not, but overbidding is one of the most common mistakes.

Finding a repo car for sale can just be what you are looking for to get the car you really want. Don’t let the word ‘repo’ or ‘auction’ put you off. There are plenty of huge bargains for those willing to have a bit of faith. Stay with the trusted resources and established websites and don’t believe everything you read on a website. Many offers are over inflated or just an attempt to hook you. The repossessed car market is very real – it’s here to stay and it’s growing with thousands of cars being added every day. So, next time you are looking for your dream car, consider a repo car.

Category:Chili Finger Incident

Friday, May 6, 2005

On Thursday the 24th of March, 2005, Anna Ayala, a woman from Las Vegas, claimed to have found a human finger in her bowl of chili at a Wendy’s restaurant located at 1405 Monterey Highway, just south of downtown San Jose, California, owned by Fresno-based Jern Management. The finger, which probably belonged to a woman as it had a long and manicured fingernail, did not belong to any of the restaurant employees. The food supplies were seized by officials to be traced back to its manufacturers, while the restaurant was permitted to open again later with chili prepared from fresh ingredients.

Contents

[edit]

Wikinews reporter David Vasquez drove his car up to the drive-thru menu and found that chili was still on the menu, at a price of US$1.19 for a small serving. He also witnessed workers unloading supplies from a semi-trailer truck in the restaurant’s parking lot, and carting them into the back door of the establishment.

Initially, county health officials said Ayala was fine and the finger had been cooked, which would have killed any bacteria in the finger. However, on March 27, officials admitted they were not so sure anymore. Tests were done on the finger to determine this. Dr. Martin Fenstersheib, Santa Clara County’s health officer, said that even if the finger was still raw when Ayala bit into it, the risk was low that she would have become infected with anything. However, he advised that Ayala should undergo a series of precautionary follow-up tests.

Sales at Wendy’s went down because of the incident. Wendy’s International, Inc. (WEN) closed at US$39.43 on Thursday the 24th, and as the stock exchange was closed for the Good Friday holiday, traders did not weigh in the stock until the next Monday.

By Tuesday the 5th of April, officials had still not succeeded in tracking down the owner of the finger. The fingerprint on the detached digit has been run through an FBI database as well as the local criminal database in Santa Clara County, but no matches were found. According to Rich Reneau, who was leading the investigation at the time, the fingerprint was marginal, and the likelihood of finding a match was slim.

Wendy’s stock did not go down significantly and was trading at US$39.37 that morning.

[edit]

The next day, on Wednesday the 6th, Las Vegas police searched the home of Anna Ayala. About a dozen officers conducted the search at Ayala’s home at Maryland Parkway and Serene Street at about 4 p.m. local time (23:00 UTC), according to witnesses at the scene. Ayala and other residents were handcuffed and brought out of the house. Ayala said that her teenage daughter, Genesis Reyes, had torn shoulder ligaments as a result of the search. The Las Vegas Review-Journal ran a photo of Reyes wearing a sling in their Friday edition. In San Jose, police spokeswoman Gina Tepoorten confirmed to reporters that investigators had served the warrant in cooperation with Las Vegas police on Wednesday, but she refused to reveal specific details about the warrant. By that time, Wendy’s was offering a US$50,000 reward for information leading to the source of the finger.

Research by the Associated Press uncovered Ayala’s history of lawsuits. Ayala successfully won her suit for medical expenses against the national El Pollo Loco chicken-chain, a previous employer, after her daughter Genesis contracted salmonella poisoning, allegedly from eating at the restaurant. However, Ayala lost another suit against General Motors in 2000 claiming that a wheel fell off her car. She also started a sexual harassment suit against her former boss in 1998. A total of 13 lawsuits in California and Nevada had been filed. Ayala replied the focus should be on Wendy’s, and not her record of lawsuits. Nick Muyo, a spokesman for the San Jose Police department, said not to expect new information in the case for at least a week.

[edit]

On Wednesday the 13th there was a potential new lead in the investigation. A spotted leopard had torn off part of a finger from an owner of exotic animals, Sandy Allman, in Pahrump, Nevada. The portion of Allman’s torn off finger was approximately the same size – 1 1/2-inches long. Pahrump is approximately 45 miles away from Las Vegas. Carol Asvestas, who owns an exotic animal sanctuary, told the San Jose Mercury News she witnessed the leopard tear off the finger. She reported the incident to a hotline run by Wendy’s offering the US$50,000 reward. Cindy Carroccio told the San Jose Mercury News that the finger was not reattached, and that the clinic “gave it back to her (Allman) in a little bag of ice.” On the same day the lead was announced, Ayala decided to drop her lawsuit against Wendy’s, due to emotional stress.

However, when Allman’s prints were sent to San Jose police, they didn’t match. Two days later, on Friday the 15th, Wendy’s doubled the reward to US$100,000. The company revealed that employees had passed polygraph tests. Wendy’s continues to claim that there is no evidence that the finger ever entered their supply chain, pointing to a lack of any accidents among the workers at their suppliers. Wendy’s tip line had received reports from across the United States, from “folks who either have lost a finger, or know somebody who lost a finger,” San Jose police Sgt. Nick Muyo told the Associated Press.

[edit]

On Thursday the 21st of April, Anna Ayala was arrested at or near her home in Las Vegas on Thursday evening, in connection with the case, shortly after Wendy’s finished its own internal investigation. According to court documents, she has been charged with one count of attempted grand larceny related to the chili case, and one count of grand larceny in an unrelated real estate deal, and is being held without bail in Clark County, Nevada, pending extradition. A press conference by the San Jose Police and Wendy’s was held on Friday, April 22, at 13:00 PDT. The charge related to the case states the finger could not have been prepared at Wendy’s, where the chili is heated to 170 degrees for 3 hours. There is also an inconsistency in Ayala’s account of finding the finger and claiming it caused her to vomit compared with police saying there was no vomit at the scene. The incident has caused Wendy’s 2.5 million dollars worth of damages, which Ayala could be criminally responsible for. Until recently, the San Jose police had not accused Ayala of planting the finger herself.

The unrelated charge stems from an incident, also in San Jose, when Ayala allegedly received an $11,000 down payment on a mobile home she did not own.

Ayala was incarcerated at the Clark County Detention Center, awaiting a fugitive review hearing on Tuesday, April 26, 2005, at 7:30 a.m. local time. She was processed and given inmate ID 01964047. Her case number was 05F07229X. Ayala waived extradition at the hearing, and her attorney said they were ready to come to San Jose to defend against the charges.

[edit]

On Friday, May 6, 2005, Ayala was transported to San Jose, California. Ayala was booked into the main Santa Clara County jail, and is awaiting arraignment. Ayala will likely be arraigned on Monday or Tuesday at the Santa Clara County Superior Court, according to Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney David Boyd.

On September 9, 2005, Ayala pleaded guilty to conspiring to file a false claim and attempted grand theft, and was scheduled to be sentenced on November 2, 2005. She faced up to ten years in prison, and her husband faced up to 13 years behind bars.

[edit]

Until the middle of May, the owner of the finger still had not been found.

But on May 13, 2005, police announced that they had identified the finger tip as belonging to an associate of Ayala’s husband [1]. The associate had lost his finger tip in an industrial accident at an asphalt company[2] in December, 2004. Police had received the information from an undisclosed caller to Wendy’s hot-line.

The Importance Of Flexibility Of Recognizing Management Styles In The Workplace}

Submitted by: Frances T. Russell

When managers know their own style and how others react to it, they are tremendously more likely to get the responses that they wish for and desire in their domains of responsibility, management and staff of their departments.

What are the basic categories of management styles?

Intuitive management styles are first in explanation . Executives who take style take a long range view , seek out relationships among disparate elements and believe indeed that disorder is not an anomaly in a workplace setting but often is to be expected indeed the rule. What are the advantages of this viewpoint of management – creativity and imagination of plans and efforts are the first that come to mind. Drawbacks include that often these types tend fantasize and even be considered n the ranges of being impractical as well as giving the appearance often to others in the office of being out of touch aloof and impersonal .

YouTube Preview Image

Next in line consider the intellectual sort. These managers exude nerves of steel and logic. Yet often the end results are anything but logical. Think of the Mr. Spock character of the original star trek series as an example. These managerial types avoid emotionalism, are orderly and have prudent work habits. However overall they tend to be skeptical of the ideas of others that can not be proved in dollars and cents and figures and overall as well are unable to generate enthusiasm and motivate other managerial staff and workers. On the other side of the fence or profit and loss statements of the companies books their style can be an overwhelming good stabilizing force, guarding against foolish or unpromising risks. Yet they are often seen in the field as indecisive , often overly cautious not able to make impromptu decisions on the fly and as well overall much too serious in nature to interact well with others. Mr. or Ms doom or gloom or show me I am from Missouri types.

Another all together different management style is what is often called or referred to as the sensory types or varieties. Managers with a sensory style and work on a wide variety and varied types of jobs and functions at any one time. Currently this is often called in the management scope multi-tasking. In some cases it is good to work on one thing at a time to fruition and eventual completion. In other tasks or fields being able to work on more than one project, task or situation at one time, to juggle these, is more preferential. Sensory specific management skill sets offer good close attention to detail are often abrupt and too busy to be neat. This in term drives more basic anal retentive types crazy and causes no end to friction to those who insist that there is only one way to do any task or function and that presentation is most imperative as well as essential. What are the pluses of these types pragmatism, being final results orientated and on top of that rarely if ever misled. Yet on the negative side of the equation sensory management types are unable to see on a long range term or terms, tend to nitpick, are often seen by both workers and other management or supervisory staff as impatient, lack overall and intrinsic trust in other resulting in poor delegation skills resulting in projects of tasks running far late in schedule. This is the ultimate lone wolf type of manager / worker who prefers to get the work done themselves rather than delegate to anyone else that might have other ideas of how the job, project or task should be completed.

What is the importance and significance of recognizing management skills? It can be best said that one size or style in management or supervisory skills and traits does not fit all. At different stages in a companys or organizations development, state or maturity they may well need different approaches and interactions to best serve the management or corporate situation or structure. One size does not fit all.

CanadaVOTES: NDP incumbent David Christopherson running in Hamilton Centre

Friday, September 26, 2008

On October 14, 2008, Canadians will be heading to the polls for the federal election. New Democratic Party incumbent David Christopherson is standing for re-election in the riding of Hamilton Centre.

From 1985-1990, he served as a Hamilton City Councillor for Ward Four. He was elected to Ontario legislature in 1990, defeating a Liberal cabinet minister. Under Bob Rae, Christopherson served as Minister of Correctional Services and Solicitor-General. He did not seek re-election to legislature in 2003, opting to run for mayor of Hamilton. Considered a frontrunner, he lost to Larry Di Ianni.

He returned to politics just months later, changing his focus to federal politics. Christopherson beat Liberal cabinet minister Stan Keyes, the incumbent, serving as NDP critic for cities, community infrastructure, labour and steel policy. He has served as a member of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Public Accounts, and Deputy Chair of the Parliamentary Steel Caucus.

Wikinews contacted David Christopherson, to talk about the issues facing Canadians, and what they and their party would do to address them. Wikinews is in the process of contacting every candidate, in every riding across the country, no matter their political stripe. All interviews are conducted over e-mail, and interviews are published unedited, allowing candidates to impart their full message to our readers, uninterrupted.

First elected in 2004, David Christopherson is the only MP to have represented Hamilton Centre, which was created in 2003 from parts of three other ridings. Only 38 km², small versus other area ridings, its located on the south side of Hamilton Harbour. Alphabetically, Christopherson’s challengers are Anthony Giles (Libertarian), John Livingstone (Green), Lisa Nussey (Marxist-Leninist), Leon O’Connor (Conservative), Ryan Sparrow (Communist), and Helen M. Wilson (Liberal).
