A couple of high school students in my neighborhood recently told me they are getting ready to hit the beach this summer by tuning up Harry Winston Replica Watch their suntans inside tanning beds.

When I asked one of my colleagues here at Penn, Dr. William James, a professor of dermatology, if the high school students had the right idea about getting a head start on a tan, he laughed out loud. A tan, he said, represents nothing more than damage to the skin. It is the body trying to defend itself against an Replica Ed Hardy Watches environmental hazard Replica Roger Dubuis Watch ?too much UV light. In other words, indoor tanning gets you ready for the beach in the same way that getting scalded in a hot tub gets you ready to be boiled alive.

So who is to blame for the idea that damaged skin is beautiful? Why do so Replica Tommy Bahama Watch many societies view a tan as a sign of radiant health rather than as a sign that you are starting to resemble a charcoal broiled steak? The main culprit, of course, is the fashion industry.

Prior to the 20th century women were fanatical about avoiding exposure to the sun. Umbrellas and parasols went everywhere with any woman who could afford them. The French fashion designer Coco Chanel changed all that.

Back in the 1920s, Coco, looking to create a new ealthy?look to promote summer wear, popularized tanned skin. Women began sunbathing and those with a tan were seen in high society as beautiful. Voila! Skin damage as fashion accessory. Youe gotta love an industry that has made anorexia and damaged skin cool.

Other interests piled on to make dough out of burnt skin. The beauty and suntan lotion businesses make billions every year selling goop so we can lounge in the sun with far less protection then the industry would have you believe their nostrums provide.

The travel industry also likes this look. Having a tan in the winter means the toasted soul has taken a vacation in an exotic, warm climate. That why hotels and travel promoters regale us with images of people with brown, damaged skin frolicking around pools and beaches without a hat, a coverup or an umbrella in sight.

A 40-year-old British woman blames a 'toxic' bracelet she bought on eBay for ruining her life.

During a two year period, Jo Wollacott, from Bridport, Dorset, suffered abscesses, hives and hallucinations; she lost her boyfriend, her job and her home and was even sectioned under the mental health act.

Miss Wollacott thought her terrible time was the result of back luck, until she discovered a bracelet she'd been wearing contained a dangerous toxin.

The mother-of-two is actually lucky to be alive. The bracelet contained a banned substance called abrin, which is prohibited under the Terrorism Act because just three micrograms of the drug could kill if swallowed.

Incredibly, it's 75 times more deadly than ricin poison.

Miss Wollacott bought a batch of the deadly red-and-black 'love' bracelets for just �1 each from internet auction site eBay in April 2010.

She put one around her wrist, kept another and sold the rest.

The mosaic maker, who was living with her partner and children, Shirelle, aged 22, and Dagan,  seven, started noticing problems as soon as they arrived.

She said: 'A few weeks later I had a really big abscess in my mouth. Then about one month after that I got hives all over my body.

'I was being physically sick throughout the summer - suffering diarrhoea and vomiting - but I just put it down to having a bad bug.

'Then my life started to spiral out of control.'

She split up with her boyfriend in July 2010 and claimed the bracelet had started to put her in an hallucinogenic-like state.

A few months later she ended up quitting her mosaic design business after missing so many days through illness.

Miss Wollacott then got into debt and was forced to sell her family home in Lyme Regis, eventually moving to a smaller home in nearby Bridport.

She also had to sell her Ford Fiesta.

Her mental health deteriorated and things came to a head in December 2010 when she was sectioned in the Forston Clinic in Dorchester.

She said: 'I was in hospital for a few days with hallucinations - I did not know what was going on.


'Doctors could not work out what was wrong with me - they did not know what medication to put me on. They thought I had been on drugs, but all my tests were negative.

'Thinking about it now, the effect of the beans on the bracelet probably would have been the same as being on drugs.'

Miss Wollacott was released from the clinic after nine days but continued to suffer problems throughout most of 2011 and was briefly sectioned again in October.

At that point the mum had lost 22 beads off the bracelet and had attached it onto her house keys.

By November last year she finally decided to put the beaded item away in a bedside jewellery box - sparking a transformation in her life.

Since then her mental health has improved, she has stopped feeling sick, bought a new car and has now begun a new career as a toymaker.

But Miss Wollacott did not discover her woes were down to the bracelet - until son Dagan bought a letter home from school in December warning of the dangers.

She said: 'The letter had a picture of my bracelet on. When I got the warning letter I came home and got the bracelet and realised how long I’d been wearing it for.

'I couldn’t believe it. When I found out hallucinations were part of the side affects of the bead poisoning I started to piece things together.

'My life is a lot better now and I am 99 per cent certain it is down to me not wearing the bracelet.'

I feel like I have lot two years of my life to this bracelet.

'It has been a nightmare. Everybody around me thought my life was just spiralling out of control because I was going through a stressful time.

'But now I realise that my problems started when I bought this bracelet. I am now finally trying to get my life back together.'

She now keeps the bracelets in a sealed box in her home and is warning others about the dangers.

The Jequirity bean, also known as the abrus precatorius, originates from Peru and can cause serious sickness or even death.

In December last year the Eden Project, in Cornwall, had to recall all of its bracelets - after selling them in its gift shop for a year.

A spokesman from the Health Protection Agency said: 'Seeds from abrus precatorius contain the poison abrin which is very toxic.

'Ingestion of any quantity of chewed, crushed or drilled seeds should be regarded seriously because, if fully absorbed, even small amounts of abrin can be fatal.

'Anyone who is suspected of ingesting seeds from this plant should seek medical advice immediately.'

A FRENCH glassmaker is hoping to revolutionise the experience of drinking wine with a new glass design.

The tulip-shaped wine glass, with a wide flat base and a vertical "chimney", will prevent the alcohol Jacob Co Watches from overpowering the aroma of wine when the glass is swirled, according to Baccarat, a maker of luxury crystal glassware.

The design prevents the usual large-scale swirling movement which oxidises the wine and burns off the delicate aromas, and retains the subtlety in the vintages, the firm said.

"This is revolutionary. This is a design that is geared towards revealing the wine," said Baccarat general manager for Greater China Francois Mainetti yesterday.

The balance between the alcohol and the aroma in wine is as important as yin and yang in Chinese philosophy, he said.

"It's just like a Breitling Replica Watch balance between fire and water, the glass balances the fire that comes from the alcohol and the aroma in the water component," Mainetti said.

The glasses went on sale in France earlier this year and were launched in China and Hong Kong last month.

China has seen an explosive growth in wine sales in recent years, linked to the Hong Kong government's decision in 2008 to drop wine import duties.

China displaced Britain to become the fifth largest wine consuming country last year, according to trade show Vinexpo and International Wine and Spirit Research.

"There is large consumption in China, so it is a legitimate territory for us to launch the glass," said Mr Mainetti, who was confident Chinese customers would be happy to pay the asking price of HK$900 ($117).

"You always hear about the impressive (auction) prices and investment, but the reality is there is a sincere group of wine lovers and there is a growing passion for wine (in China)."

I checked the information on line and someone used his account the day after I purchased it. Vanilla visa said they could do nothing and that I would have to take it up with the company they got something from. The apparently material percentage of gift card value that goes unused creates additional accounting complications. For some gift cards, an expiration date may serve as an event for removing any unused amount from the lingering gift card liability. In fact, I actually maintain an account there for my niece.
When the card does sell a 7.5% processing fee based on the final sale price will be subtracted from the amount credited to your account. Gift cards were a huge hit during last year's holiday shopping season, spurring sales at major retailers like Starbucks, where gift card users now account for about 14% of North American revenue, and Barnes & Noble.

Somebody opened it and took it! This happened to me this year. The opening scene ?shot with a practical set for the left-hand sidewalk action only ?was completed by extending the street downwards and outwards with CG. Brickyard VFX achieved the apartment window fly-through digitally, with interior action filmed on a live set. One of the gifts (a small fridge) we just wanted to exchange as the one we had received was slightly damaged after we opened it, they wouldn allow it as we had no gift receipt. Some of the gifts the gift giver didn attach a receipt too or maybe in all the commotion it got lost who knows.
Target first in the Christmas series opens with two antler-bearing deer in a snow-clad forest. Their noses become silhouetted in the backdrop of a festive table set by three couples.

We give a lot of gift cards every year and have NEVER used an open-loop card. We buy cards from Meijer (a local superstore) for people living in our area and from Target for people in other states. Maybe I won't even open it and take it back then, I don't know yet. We made good time, and got there 20 minutes before it opened. As I hoped (and suspected) there was no line up: the Zune is no Xbox 360, and most people don't even know what it is.

I agree with Sally Villarreal, and I surprised it took 34 comments for someone to bring up combining a gift card with coupons. A couple of Christmases ago, I got a JCPenney gift card from my in-laws.

If you plan to get gift or other goodies there (games, perhaps) then you might as well get the card first, turn around and spend it. There is no fee for the card, but shoppers must load at least $50 on it.

I think, and hope, that I might be able to find a loophole to recycle them, at least at the store I work at, perhaps all the stores in the area!

Usually, ad special items that are purchased within 10 days or so before the advertisement are generally honored (but please don complain if it isn honored; working in retail sucks too and I sure whoever sold it to you had no idea this ad special was going to happen). First, watch your register receipts. You can get all kinds of coupons and offers on them.

Resale value also connects to how much you can actually get Corum Fake Watch with only the gift card; for example, at Target you should be able to find some number of items whose prices add up to the gift card value. That not the case with an airline gift card, where youl probably end up using the card towards a much costlier purchase (Southwest Airlines?redemption value is 60%). There are always items on clearance, but there are often more savings opportunities after holidays or after a change of season. Target coupons and manufacturer coupons can be used on clearance items as well,
which can make an already good deal an awesome deal.
