    Bash Compactor: Getting Laid Off Is Still Getting Laid The Fashion Meets Finance Party By Matt Harvey Broke bankers and struggling models mobbed the rooftop of the Empire Hotel last night for the latest installment of Fashion Meets Finance.

Struggling to anchor herself with the crutches she told me her deal. “I was running to work to get there on time when I fell. It’s not funny!” As the tiny...

Deyn heads the top of the list and towers over other contenders Peaches Geldof, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and former pop singer Kerry Katona.
  • CA: We're no model - AB 32 fiasco shows state doesn't know best

    One of the shabbiest, least satisfying public policy debates in modern California political history is expected to wrap up today in Sacramento with the California Air Resources Board adopting its “Scoping Plan” for the implementation of AB 32. That's the landmark 2006 state law requiring a sharp increase in the use of cleaner but more costly sources of energy to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions contributing to global warming. It is inevitable that the law will have negative economic consequences, given that California businesses will have higher costs than rival firms in other states and nations without such an edict,...

    The earth will warm about 2.4 degrees C (4.3 degrees F) above pre-industrial levels even under extremely conservative greenhouse-gas emission scenarios and under the assumption that efforts to clean up particulate pollution continue to be successful, according to a new analysis by a pair of researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. That amount of warming falls within what the world's leading climate change authority recently set as the threshold range of temperature increase that would lead to widespread loss of biodiversity, deglaciation and other adverse consequences in nature. The researchers, writing in the online edition of...

    Naomi Campbell last night blamed racism for her outburst on a British Airways jet, claiming she had been called 'a golliwog supermodel'. In an interview with Sky News, Miss Campbell said she was not going to apologise to BA as they were "disgusting." 'I was called a golliwog supermodel, I don’t think that’s really fair do you?' The supermodel did not say exactly who had called her the name only that it was not one of the passengers. When asked who called her the name, she replied: 'Someone on the flight, not the passenger.' She added:'Would you like it if...

    Gay people in Holland have been shocked by a public attack on a gay man in Amsterdam. Model Mike Du Pree was taking part in a fashion show to promote tolerance towards gay people when a gang of ten Muslim youths dragged him from the catwalk and beat him. A right wing Dutch MP has called for the youths to be deported. Mr Du Pree's nose was broken in the attack, which was motivated by homophobia. The fashion event was held on a public holiday marking the birth of Holland's late Queen Julianna. Newspaper Gay Krant reports that a bystander...

    A model of 14 was banned from the catwalk in Australia yesterday amid continuing controversy over the sexualisation of young girls in the fashion industry. A photo-shoot of Monika Jagaciak by Australian Vogue was also called off after the editor said she had not realised the Polish teenager's age. Organisers of Australian Fashion week in Sydney banned all under-16s from the catwalk after furious public debate over the use of youngsters in an industry already under fire over anorexia and drug use. It follows a similar decision ahead of London Fashion Week last September and brings the Australian event into...

    TAMPA — It was Dec. 23, and a Temple Terrace police officer had just pulled Rebecca Reyes over for broken taillights, and all the Playboy model wanted to do was hide her boyfriend's Christmas present before he spotted it. One problem: She got out of her truck and ignored officers' orders to get back in. Then she mouthed off when one of them took hold of her arm. She ended up bruised and facing a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest without violence.

    Model of Easter Island Collapse Might Reveal Message for Today By Lisa ZygaGraphs based on the researchers’ model, showing the population (top) and resources (bottom). The decline of resources coincides with a sharp population increase, followed by a sharp decrease. Image credit: M. Bologna and J. C. Flores. When a thriving civilization suddenly collapses, it’s often a mystery – and an ominous one, at that. For Easter Island circa 1000-1400 AD, experts believe it was a case of humans overexploiting their natural resources – mostly, the palm tree. But exactly where did the culturally rich Rapanui society go too far?...

    The bull market in stocks continues, but to hear various exponents of the bearish persuasion talk, you'd think the party was ending right now. At least that's the impression I get reading some of their weekly rants on various Internet sites. A reader recently directed me to a web site that features the commentary of the distinguished Dr. John Hussman, who runs the Hussman series of mutual funds. Hussman publishes a weekly commentary on various market-related issues on his web site. In a recent commentary published on the Hussman Funds web site he asked the question, "How Much Do Interest...

Headlined "Women of the Israel Defense Forces," the...

This 1:1 model scale 1940 Ford was the work of the St. Joe Valley Street Rod Club in South Bend, Indiana. The setup is complete with a giant X-acto knife, Testor's paint and glue.

"I just wish my performance spoke for itself," Washington said, after host Tyra Banks announced her elimination. "I am pretty disappointed, disappointed that I didn't explain myself...

    ...Canada is, along with the United States, Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand, part of the Anglosphere. The Anglosphere comprises the best nations, with the best records for goodness of any major powers in recorded history. Though imperfect, we've collectively been on the right side of more issues, created better societies, and liberated more people from tyranny than anyone else ever. (Example: Nearly every former British colony today has a democratic government. No other European power can say that---not even close.) Not to put too fine a point on it---we're just better. Not genetically, for goodness sake---but culturally. Who knows,...
