But that changed when she was the winning bidder of “The Art of Glamorous Living: Being Susan Pinsky” package auctioned off at Hillsides annual gala held in Pasadena in February. As the winner, Ermshar received the royal beauty treatment from head to toe and the opportunity to walk down the red carpet at the recent MTV Movie Awards at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.“I’m normally a workaholic,” said Ermshar. “This was so much fun!”The event also landed Ermshar on the fashion map – one celebrity web site included her as one of the “best dressed” of the night.The package was assembled by Hillsides gala chair and social media personality Susan Pinsky, and included being escorted to a celebrity event by Pinsky’s husband, TV host and long-time Hillsides supporter, Dr. Drew Pinsky. Other perks included a spray tan, eyelash extensions, a manicure-pedicure, a spa/salon date, loaned jewels, and a couture dress to wear.Ermshar’s MTV Movie Awards red carpet moment kicked off with a flurry of beauty appointments, including multiple dress consultations with husband and wife dress designers Rebecca Goldsmith and David Klein of Goldsmith & Klein. Ermshar had been promised a dress on loan, but received more than she’d hoped for when Goldsmith & Klein decided to make her one.Ermshar had a rough idea of the concept –a red cocktail dress – and the designers went to work creating her something stunning.“We only had a week and a half to create the dress and normally we have three – four weeks from start to finish,” said Klein. The duo quickly but meticulously whipped up an exquisite cocktail dress made of iridescent silk taffeta with sequins on the bodice and feathers on the sash for extra pop.“I felt beautiful in the dress,” said Ermshar. “It was fun, but elegant, which is hard to capture, but the dress did it perfectly.” Celebrity website Radar Online mentioned her and Dr. Drew as some of the best-dressed of the night.Ermshar also got to keep the gown, which would normally retail for $2,200.Also making Ermshar glamorous during the evening were Sylva et Cie Jewels, Pasadena’s Bravo Salon, and EyeDazzle Lashes in Pasadena.Goldsmith & Klein, an exclusive fashion house that produces couture gowns, ready-to-wear items, and one-of-a-kind creations, began in 2009 and has quickly caught the attention of several prominent celebrities and been featured in multiple magazines.

Regulator demands better service

first_imgBRITAIN’S Rail Regulator John Swift announced on August 15 that he was proceeding with enforcement action against Train Operating Companies over poor performance of the National Rail Enquiry Service, the network of telephone enquiry bureaux accessed by a single number since August 1996. All 25 TOCs participate in the NRES scheme, divided into 10 zonal contracts let to TOCs or the private sector and administered by the Association of Train Operating Companies.Dissatisfied with NRES performance and using powers written into the passenger licence issued to every TOC, Swift published a proposed enforcement order on July 11 setting out the fines that TOCs would be liable to pay if less than 90% of calls to NRES were answered in a four-week period. Unpersuaded by subsequent representations, the Rail Regulator proceeded with a final enforcement order covering the period between August 17 and September 14. For each percentage point of calls not answered between 85% and 89%, the TOCs stand to be fined £50000, rising to £100000 per point in the 75% to 85% range and £200000 per point below 75%. During July, 71% of calls to NRES were answered; performance levels were reported to be just short of 90% towards the end of August, with ATOC sources anticipating a ’minimal’ fine under the enforcement order. olast_img read more

Looked fabulous on for such a cheap price gave a nice expensive finish to my outfit. Just perfect , good quality and well made , prompt delivery. Black Headband Aliceband Hat Fascinator Wedding Ladies Day Race Royal Ascot : Bought this as emergency as previous design ordered very poor. This was amazing it stayed on all day and kept its shape. It is noticeable but not to over the top. Quick delivery, excellent price, looked really nice would highly recommend. Very very happy with this fascinator beautiful shape and not too large. Great value for money absolutely delighted. This is a great fascinator but not as big as i thought in the picture. Still great value for money. Arrived quickly and in a flat box so you need to bed it a bit into place. It looked good i felt great. Wore it for my sisters graduation and got a few envy looks. Wears well with hair up or down. Wonderful product, looks more expensive, couldn’t tell the difference between higher priced versions, looks fab on. This looks way better in person.

Very reasonably priced, comfortable and secure to wear. It has to be manipulated into the shape required as it comes flat packed. I sewed strips of sequins along some of the edges to brighten it up and was pleased with the result. I received many complements at my son’s evening wedding party. Arrived quickly and quite surprisingly in a flattish box so when you get it out of the box you have to push up the bows to make them stand up but this was easy to do. It is on an alice band which was very comfortable. Wore it for a wedding which complimented my dress.

Hook and bullet camps (and getting the lead out)

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest As a youth growing up in Ohio I attended Boy Scout Camp (Lazarus) and YMCA Camp (Willson) and enjoyed myself well enough. But had there been camp opportunities such as those offered by the Lake & Trails Organization focusing on fishing, boating and shooting sports, you couldn’t have dragged me away from FFA Camp Muskingum, where these long-weekend camps are presented to youths age 9 to 17.I actually attended “camp” at Camp Muskingum the summer I graduated from OSU when I won a scholarship to attend National Aquatics School there. Located hard on the shore of beautiful Leesville Lake, the setting and facilities are exceptional and I can only imagine the hook and bullet fun that takes place there during these spring and fall camps — for the campers as well as the adults who get to attend as sponsors of up to three youths each.If there’s a child in your life who seems to be drawn to the outdoors, I recommend that you look into what these camps offer, including sponsorship opportunities made available to kids who may need financial assistance to attend. But don’t delay — these camps fill up fast once registration opens about this time each spring.Getting the lead outSpeaking of hunting and fishing, President Barack Obama’s order on the day before leaving office barring the use of lead fishing tackle and ammunition on hundreds of thousands of acres managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has angered anglers and hunters and their proponents. The American Sportfishing Association and B.A.S.S., among others, have called on President Trump to put a hold on the order, which they say was issued without stakeholder input.Many environmental groups have pushed for a ban on lead ammunition and fishing tackle based on the known toxic effect on animals that ingest lead, and lead shot has been barred from use for waterfowl hunting since 1991 after research showed ducks and other birds suffered lethal lead poisoning from eating the pellets. Opponents say such a sweeping ban on lead is unnecessary to protect animals and would hurt their business.last_img read more

Apple Wishes It Knew How To Quit Google’s Money

first_imgHow much would you pay to be the default search engine in the iOS mobile operating system?According to a report at TechCrunch on Tuesday, the magic figure that Google will be paying Apple for the privilege could be a whopping $1 billion dollars.That’s because Google and Apple, while enemies in the mobile arena, also need each other to survive. Apple’s valuable iOS users – millions and millions of eyeballs that happen to be wealthier than most – are coveted by Google, and Google’s massive search data is needed by Apple for those same users. (I could also add that Apple desperately needs Google’s mapping data, but that’s not what this story’s about, and that’s just rubbing salt on the Apple Maps wound.)Apparently, even as Google is trying to kick Apple’s butt with Android, Apple gets 75 cents for every dollar Google makes on iOS from advertising and data collection. Which puts the iOS price tag somewhere around that billion-dollar mark, according to the Morgan Stanley report cited in the article.A billion dollars in revenue is nothing to sneeze at, and on the surface it seems like Apple is being silly with this continued effort to separate itself from the ever-pervasive realm of Google’s services.What it may be thinking is simple math: if Apple can get $1 billion just as a cut of someone else’s business, imagine what it could make if it had full control of that business? Thus, we have efforts like Apple Maps.Clumsy as Apple’s efforts might be, the fact that there’s a lot of money to be made in the realm of mobile data and advertising means such efforts may ultimately be worth the birthing pains. With its rich and loyal user base, Apple may be the eventual winner – if it can ultimately remove Google and it’s billion-dollar ad payouts as the middle man.Image courtesy of Shutterstock.

Production Tips for Filming Large Groups of People

first_imgCheck out these valuable tips and tricks for working with large groups of extras on set.Cover image via Warner Bros Entertainment.Whether it’s on a student film or a big budget feature, working with lots of extras (or just people in general) can be a huge headache to pull off. Not only are there issues with scheduling and direction, you also have to think about issues like food, bathrooms, and communication.If you find yourself in a role wherein you’ll need to corral, wrangle, and direct a large group, here are seven pieces of advice to help you get the most out of your crowd.PlanningImage via Shutterstock.First and foremost, your best bet for ensuring a successful crowd scene is to plan it meticulously. A tight script needs translation into a tighter shooting schedule that takes into account all aspects of setup, taking breaks, and problem-solving stopgaps. Working from a solid storyboard will also help. If you plan accordingly, you can ensure that your crowd shots take as little time as possible with optimal results.Assistant DirectorsImage via Shutterstock.The bigger the crowd, the more people you’re going to need to control them. On many shoots, the role of organizing PAs, extras, and the crew falls to the assistant director (or directors). The ADs need to handle all the elements of crowd management, they keep the schedule, and they and put out any (figurative) fires — which will free up the actual director and crew to work on setting the shots and working with the talent.Wranglers/PAsImage via FTHMB.An army of ADs will often (hopefully) lead an army of PAs. You’ll need PAs or wranglers to stay with the extras and control the crowd. This includes preparing them with costumes and make up and shepherding them into formations as directed by the ADs and director — not to mention getting them food and water and seeing to any medical or physical problems that may arise.Walkie-talkies/HeadsetsImage via Imgur (johnbrier).One of the most important tools on bigger, more complex shoots is a solid walkie-talkie communication system. Handling a large crowd would be almost impossible without being able to instantly communicate with ADs and PAs. Be sure to have back-up sets, batteries, and charging stations to ensure you’re never at a loss for communication.Bullhorns/MegaphonesImage via Shutterstock.On a similar note, since large crowds can often be loud, spread out, and hard to communicate with, a system of horn blasts or megaphone announcements may be your only option to get a group moving. This is also helpful when crowds need to react to certain cues or make synchronized movements. A short blast or “REACT NOW” may be your only option to get them to work in unison.Zoom LensesImage via Shutterstock.If you have the means to pull hundreds of extras for a crowd shot, more power to you. Shoot as wide as you’d like to show off your casting resources. However, if you’re working with a smaller group of extras that need to appear to be much, much greater in numbers, consider shooting scenes tightly with controlled, long zoom lenses to control your frame. This can also create a shallow depth of field to blur out extras so you can use them multiple times.Food/Water/RestroomsImage via City Palate Catering.Craft services, when done right, can be the most valuable part of any production. When you have large crowds and lots of extras, you can absolutely count on people getting tired, hungry, and thirsty — and they’ll need to use the restroom. If you don’t have the capabilities to meet those basic human needs, everyone is going to have a bad time.Do you have any tips for filming large crowd scenes? Let us know in the comments.last_img read more

Asiad: Indian boxers allege poor refereeing

first_imgSome of the Indian boxers who lost their semifinal bouts at the Asian Games in Guangzhou have criticised the refereeing as poor. Suranjoy Singh Mayengbam was ousted in a close semifinal bout, thanks to few controversial decisions by the referee. Sources said Suranjoy was inconsolable after his 5-6 loss to China’s Yong Chang.  Five-time world champion M.C. Mary Kom, who lost her bout 7-11 to Ren Cancan of China, too alleged poor refereeing.  She said if the referee – Berna Yurtsever of Turkey – had checked her opponent’s unfair tactics, the result would have been different.  “I was trying my level best but she (Ren Cancan) kept pulling me down and the referee did not do anything. I had my punches ready for her, but I had no answer for her holding tactics,” Mary Kom said. Not just the Indians, even Thailand’s Amnat cried foul after being adjudged 2-5 loser to China’s Zou Shiming in the 46 to 49 kg fight. “I can beat this guy anywhere but not in China,” he said.last_img read more
