Spratt managed to find everything

2013/11/18 


"You don't want them to run around without a coat and get sick," said Spratt.Spratt managed to find everything she needs for Terrence, but as her bags get packed up, Spratt hopes more donations will come in to help other families like hers."It's really important for babies, like his age to have coats, long sleeves, pants, socks, all that," said Spratt.What's the difference between Target and Walmart? Many liberal-minded people bristle at the name Walmart and think of its well-documented history of low wages, poor employee treatment and its devastating effect on many small businesses and communities across America. Target, on the other hand, has managed to avoid much of the negativity associated with the Walmart brand. Target has instead tried to cultivate an image as the socially-conscious alternative to Walmart's evil big box retail empire - it perpetuates the notion that it treats its workers better and provides higher quality goods and services, all without sinking to the same harsh lows as its Bentonville-based competitor.

Many so-called "blue states" welcome Target with open arms while shunning Walmart for their anti-worker practices.So this begs the question - is Target really any better? Is this line of thinking justified?Unfortunately, the answer is no. Target's record when it comes to workers is about the same. Look past the positive PR and one will find that Target pays many of its workers unconscionably low wages - Target is the fourth largest low-wage employer in the country. Furthermore, the company is anti-union - they require employees to watch anti-union propaganda and just last year Target was found to have intimidated workers and violated federal labor laws. Kind of reminds you of another corporate big box retail chain, doesn't it?Target now employs over 340,000 workers in the United States. According to IBIS World, an independent market research company, the average wage for Target employees is in fact less than the average wage for workers at Walmart. And while many of these Target "team members" are paid a poverty-level wage, the compensation package of Target CEO Gregg Steinhafel amounted to over $28 million in 2012. That's almost $14,000 per hour!

It depends on the returner

2013/11/14 

Big stores lose out when we return clothes, but everyone else wins. It depends on the returner, and the garment you'd hope that no one would be so vulgar as to attend a hot yoga class in their new Spandex unitard and then demand a refund on their purchase. But as long as the wearer has remembered their deodorant and been careful with their cigarettes, I don't mind the idea of buying a dress that's already had a few gratis nights out. After all, we love vintage clothes because they have a history and a story. Returned clothes could have great stories too, it's just they're more likely to end with a trip to Chicken Cottage.It's possible to rent occasion wear from some outfitters, but if stores feel "wardrobing" is a serious problem, they need to get in on the act. Chain stories could consider introducing a clothes library, where a garment can be rented for a reduced fee, which covers storage and cleaning costs.

If nothing else, it would make a sizeable dent in the scary pile of man-made fabrics that end up in landfill every year.For women, fashion consumerism is a game they can't win. In one light, we're flibbertigibbets, unable to focus our minds on serious issues like sport, because our heads are full of sparkles and chiffon. If we find joy in fashion, we're thought to be frivolous and simple, even though this is an industry that generates thousands of jobs and billions of pounds, attracting artistic visionaries and smart entrepreneurs.However, we can't escape fashion. Everywhere we turn, we're being told to look different, to look better, to have the right outfit for every mood and occasion. If you ever have to go out, be seen in public and talk to people, I am certain there will have been at least one occasion in your life when it became a tearful and traumatic experience because you felt you looked wrong.

The court heard the victim

2013/9/26 


He slowed down to let him cross but he approached the car, and before Mr Mujahid could lock the door the defendant produced a large knife which he then proceeded to wave around, shouting for him to get out."Czosnek then stole the car, and 40 cash from inside.He was next seen by a police officer on the M6 motorway on the hard shoulder trying to fix the car after losing a wheel.He fled the scene but was arrested after a short police chase.Czosnek pleaded guilty to robbery, taking a vehicle without authority and possession of an offensive weapon.The court heard the victim, who has three toddlers, said he had suffered a big financial loss when the car was stolen, and had suffered health problems.Judge Recorder Crawford said: " You, in drink, forced him out of his car by threatening him."You took the car onto the motorway where there was a mishap with the tyre which led to you being apprehended by police.

"In an impact statement the victim said his children had been upset, that he suffered financial loss and that his health has deteriorated. All these things have happened due to your behaviour in drink.An 18-year-old rapper has been stabbed to death while he was attending a fundraising event in memory of a knife attack victim who died exactly a year earlier.Named locally as Joshua Ribera but performing under the stage name Depzman, the young man died in the early hours of Saturday morning.Police were called after an incident at approximately 11pm on Friday night at TC's nightclub in the Selly Oak area of Birmingham.No one has been charged in relation to the incident, which saw Depzman taken away in an ambulance, but an 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after he attended a police station in Dudley at around 11.45pm the same night, a police spokesman said. Johnston has pleaded guilty to attempted armed robbery and threatening with a knife. He was sentenced to four years in prison, of which he is expected to serve two, by Judge Samuel Wiggs at Bournemouth Crown Court.

Liverpool v Manchester United

2013/9/12 


It is an issue that is intertwined with emotion and self-identity. The issue becomes even more complicated when policy makers push financially stable local governments to merge and absorb neighboring towns that are financially struggling.
Having said that, I believe it's an initiative worth considering and, as governor, I will lead a conversation with local leaders to identify how state support can be leveraged in a manner that provides incentives for regionalization of government services such as water and sewer systems, police protection, and road maintenance just to name a few. Existing local funding formulas should be examined to determine whether greater regionalization of specific government services could be more efficiently provided on broader scales."The symptoms of the Coronavirus start with a cold followed by a runny nose, fever, general malaise and physical exhaustion. This is accompanied by a cough and mild chest pain with some cases of diarrhoea," said Dr. Shadi Mohammed, an internist at the Al-Azizia Medical Centre in Doha.
Mohammed told Al-Shorfa he believes there is no cause for alarm in Qatar as Coronavirus cases are still at a minimum.

Ghassan Yusuf Hummus, an internist at the Medical Care Centre in Doha, said the virus is transmitted by way of sneezing, particularly in crowded places, not washing hands well and exposure to contaminated foods, with the greatest risk coming from direct contact with an infected person."No specific and effective cure has so far been discovered for the Coronavirus," he told Al-Shorfa. "All the doctors can do is apply first aid procedures used in emergency rooms."Infected patients are given supportive treatment, such a temperature reducer and oxygen when his or her temperature rises to an alarming level or he or she suffers respiratory failure, Hummus said."The Coronavirus is a dangerous virus that can evolve and develop into severe pneumonia, causing the patient to suffer respiratory failure," he said.

Neither Mr Cheeseman nor Ms Henderson

2013/9/6 


What teams are doing-or not doing-is not working, and each and every team is going to have to look for ways to reduce injuries or else they can keep burning hundreds of millions of dollars each season.The Geelong Advertiser conducted a similar poll with a similar number of respondents in the days before the 2010 election.It predicted Ms Henderson would win the primary vote, with Greens preferences being the decider in a suspenseful count.That is exactly what happened, with Mr Cheeseman sneaking home by 771 votes after 2 1/2 weeks of counting and recounting.Neither Mr Cheeseman nor Ms Henderson were surprised to learn voters were still making up their minds."Certainly in handing out how-to-vote cards at the pre-poll booths in recent days, there are a lot of people making last-minute decisions about who they'll vote for," Mr Cheeseman said."We will continue to press the flesh as much as possible over the next few days and make the case for why Labor is the best choice for people in this region.

"We have a really strong plan for the region, in terms of creating jobs and investing in projects like the Epworth Hospital (at Waurn Ponds), and the Geelong Innovation and Investment Fund, and I think people will be considering those issues over the next few days as they go to vote."Ms Henderson said she was again expecting Corangamite's result to go down to the wire.The charge stems from an incident on July 15 when he choked, punched and threatened to stab a woman while holding a knife, according to court documents. In addition to the prison term, Robinson-Worm was ordered to make $1,352 in restitution and pay $104 in court costs.Robinson-Worm's guilty plea was also a violation of the terms of his probation as the result of a previous assault conviction. And for failing to follow probation rules in that case, he was sentenced to two years in prison. His terms will be served concurrently.The aggravated assault is a felony punishable by as much as 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine.
