Animal Inspired Fun For Autumn Fashion Frolics


The animal kingdom is an evergreen source of inspiration for fashion lovers everywhere. Those furry, feathered and scaled creatures lend their patterns and textures (though hopefully do not give their actual lives) for ethical fashion lovers everywhere to incorporate in their own fun and zany ways into their own signature looks. Here are five animal inspired ideas for autumn fashion frolics:

Faux Fur Collar Jacket

Get yourself a garment that is all warm and snug this autumn. A bomber jacket or customised denim coat with a faux fur collar is one way to get all cosy this season. There are plenty of different options and your neck will feel as warm as a pup in a puppy muddle.

Angora Sweater

For a bit of class and a touch of timeless chic, you should really invest in a well-fitting angora sweater. Choose a vibrant, rich colour for an on trend look that will keep you warm and looking good in even the most formal of settings. For work and play, one of these jumpers will be an extremely versatile addition to your ever growing wardrobe.

Woollen Dress

Wear a woollen dress with thick tights or leggings and you will be able to move seamlessly between the outdoors and the indoors without getting too cold or too hot and sticky. Wool is a great, breathable material and though it can be a little itchy, with some careful layering you will be comfortable as can be, as content as a sheep in pasture.

Faux Alligator Boots

Boots are big this season and the bolder the better. Why not have a playful side and choose a pair with a crocodile or alligator print. These predators may be alarming, but their patterns are all fun. This could be a good way to make sure your footwear stands out from the crowd and you can keep your feet warm and dry whatever the weather.

Bold Animal Print Bag

If animal print clothing or footwear seems a little too much, you can still add a hint of the animal kingdom with a bold and vibrant animal print bag that looks as though it may have come straight from the savannah and yet will not look out of place on the dance floor or on the high street. Leopard, tiger or cheetah, whichever big cat you choose to be you will be king of your own urban jungle.

Rich Brother by Tobias Wolff


The Rich Brothers is a story of two brothers, their sibling rivalry and their contrast in everything including worldly success and failure. While Pete is rich and Donald is poor by the end of the story we are left wondering who among the two is actually rich in the real sense of the term.

Pete, the older among the sibling is rich and successful. He exemplifies the American middle class dream – nice family life with a wife and two daughters, a house, a sailboat, and every other thing that money can buy you – of success that his hard work in real estate business could attain for him. Donald, the younger brother is just his opposite. He lives alone and survives out of painting houses. At times, he lives in a Berkeley ashram and lives in financial debt.

Pete comes to rescue Donald out of his difficulties and donates him money right in the beginning of this story. The two are driving in a car when Pete gifts him $100. However, there is a subtle sub-text of sibling rivalry in the background during their childhood as also when they grow up. Donald for instance, reminds Pete how as a kid he wanted to kill him, to which Pete replies, “children always do such things”.

Pete doesn’t bother to or perhaps doesn’t like to discuss his personal life with Donald, yet Donald asks him if he ever dreams of his younger brother. Pete, in fact has a recurring dream that he is blind and needs his brother’s assistance. Perhaps, the author has metaphorically hinted at the blindness inherent in material success and in need of genuine spiritual assistance from people like Donald.

The story moves further even as we discover more contrasting characteristics of the two brothers. In comes a character Webster that tells them a mythic tale of his own dream experience involving goldmine and greed. Donald gives away $100 gifted to him by Pete. But Pete throws him out of the car on learning what he has done.

Meanwhile, Pete ponders what would he answer his wife when she would ask him about his brother? Perhaps, he is not worried. Material wealth has blind his conscience; his sensitivity: “And in this way, smiling, nodding to the music, he went another mile or so and pretended that he was not already slowing down, that he was not going to turn back, that he would be able to drive on like this alone, and have the right answer when his wife stood before him in the doorway of his home and asked, Where is he? Where is your brother?”(Wolff 269)

Wolff’s story parallels the biblical story of Cain and Abel. One brother is spiritual, God-oriented, helping and reaching out to others, while the other is materialistic, has least concern with God and can even go to the extent of trying to kill or hurt his brother. The contrast in the character of the two brother compels us to ask who is the rich brother? The one that has money or the one who lacks material wealth, but is endowed with human virtues? Who really needs whom? Does Donald really need money? If he really needed money, why would he give it away to Webster without a second thought? Pete can only pretend that he doesn’t need Donald. He can only pretend that he can go alone and will answer his acts toward his brother.

The author through contradictory characters of the two brothers has tried to dig the real meaning of wealth. A person can remain unfulfilled despite all his wealth as shown through the metaphor of dream where Pete is blind and in need for assistance. Donald is pious, happy and harbors no grudge against Pete, and therefore, is quite capable of helping Pete learn how to be a good person.


Steel Chastity Belts and Chastity Devices – Three Common Myths Debunked


A steel chastity belt enforcing strict orgasm denial and access to his penis is the fantasy of many a man. And it’s easy to see why, because of the many, many benefits of male chastity and orgasm denial that millions of couples around the world can attest to.

But the problem is, the reality is clouded by unlikely and impossible fantasies, as is often the case with this kind of thing.

And while you can argue such fantasies are harmless, and while it’s true they are harmless in the main, it’s also true they can be harmful and damaging to those serious couples who actually swallow the fantasy as fact.

So right now we’re going to look at the three biggest myths about steel chastity belts and devices.

  1. There is a “best” belt or chastity device. Unfortunately, this is not true. There are many, different makes and they’re made from materials as diverse as polycarbonate, stainless steel and titanium. And the only real measure of their relative worth is how well they work for you. Some men, for example, find the polycarbonate devices very effective, even for long-term use; but other men, like my husband, John, found they were effectively useless because he could still masturbate while wearing it. There is often no alternative but to try a few devices and, depending on how serious you are, go for a higher-end custom-made device. Yes, they’re not cheap, but you might be wearing the device for a long time, and if male chastity is important to you, then it’s worth the investment. A belt you don’t wear because it’s uncomfortable or causes soreness or simply doesn’t fit properly is the most expensive device you will ever wear. You might even find you end up buying more than one fairly expensive device because the one you hoped was The One True Device didn’t work out in practice. The key is perseverance. If you want chastity badly enough, then you’ll stick with it — and, believe me, it’s worth it in the long run.
  2. You can simply put it on and forget it. This is a common lie: “my wife locked it on me while I was asleep and now I can’t get it off, and I’ve been locked like this for six months”. Fact is, a good device takes some effort to get on. As it should, because a device that’s too easy to get in is probably a poor fit and will likely be easy to escape from. More than that, though, you need time to let your body adjust to wearing it. There will be the inevitable chafing and a little soreness, just as there is with a new pair of shoes. So take your time to let it all settle down. There is no hurry.
  3. They can be 100% secure. Nope. Another lie. No steel chastity belt or other male chastity device can ever be completely secure. Any one of them can be removed with the kind of simple tools every man has in his garage, albeit with some (perhaps considerable) damage to it. More than that, most men can, with enough effort and determination, bring themselves to orgasm wearing a belt or other device. They are nothing more than a deterrent, the level of deterrence being set by the man’s desire to remain chaste and to some extent by the style, nature and material of the device itself.

I realise what I’ve written above might be disappointing to you, but it’s the truth. And going into male chastity with ideas and expectations based on lies will only set you up for disappointment.


Embedded DVR


In most surveillance operations using a DVR, the commonly used method is to link the DVR card to a computer containing the software. This has serious limitations in the event of a virus attack or power failure, because the surveillance system could be thrown off gear. In order to overcome these problems, a new type of DVR called the “embedded DVR” has been launched.

The embedded DVR works with very little or no help from the computer. It is a plug and play meaning that installation is very easy and recording can start as soon as the device is installed. Embedded DVRs can support 4-16 cameras, and a television screen can be added for viewing live pictures. Embedded DVRs provide all the features that come with computer based DVR systems including network support options that allow you to share the recorded data. The motion of the camera can be controlled based on motion and playback and search option are also available.

Embedded DVRs can be programmed to record at specific times. With an alarm facility available, fast detection of any intrusion can be detected. On integration with a web server, remote audio/video monitoring and recording is facilitated. Data storage is usually in MPEG format. If there is a problem with storage, a back up plan is activated where by the data is written onto CD disks. Embedded DVRs also have remote storage facility meaning storage of information can be done at a location away from where the input device is located. This can minimize data pilferage or theft.

Embedded DVRs are now used extensively in the transport sector. Specially developed embedded DVRs have in built features like impact resistance, shock & and vibration resistance are now found in trucks, school and city buses, airport shuttles, cars, taxis, etc. These DVRs are compact and take inputs provided by camera located in different parts of the automobile. It can also provide the driver with a view of the road andor passengers at all times. In such a system, the storage device is often a replaceable hard disk drive. In some cases, a USB mobile hard disk enclosure is also provided. Use of DVRs in public and private transport devices can increase the security of passengers and cargo.

With enhanced emphasis on security, embedded DVRs have become an irreplaceable component of industrial and corporate security systems. In the near future, the embedded DVRs may find new applications many areas. The full potentials of this device are yet to be realized and it may not be a surprise to see them used by everyday people for everyday living.

Similarities Between the Computer and the Brain


Have you ever realized that the brain and a computer have nearly similar functions? For example, if you download something to your computer, it is just the same as the brain downloading new information during lessons in class. The same thing goes with uploading a file or an image from the computer to the internet; your brain does the same thing by uploading something you learned in class and projecting it onto a piece of paper. For example, your brain downloads an image when you see something, and then uploads it by you drawing a picture of something you have seen. Of course even the world’s most powerful supercomputer cannot rival a human brain, but these are some examples of the similarities between man and machine that can be identified. Probably in the future, where humans have developed some high technology will they be able to create near-human computers.

Here are some other similarities between the computer and the brain:

Functions and Purpose

Both are used for storage of information, to process information and to run tasks.

Functions: Both are used for mathematical calculations, carrying out complex algorithms and to storing of crucial information.

Role in society

Both play extremely important roles in society, commerce, entertainment and science

Every single living creature survives by quick thinking and reflexes, that includes us. The computer today plays the most important roles from specialized systems controlling entire production factories to little “fuzzy logic” chips in washing machines that intelligently monitor the washing process.

Combining components

Both work by combining the processes of several components and parts to perform their tasks.

A computer consists of many parts, including a motherboard (which is also made of several components), the disk drives, the processor, graphic cards and many more… all of which has its own roles in the computer’s processes.

Like a computer, the brain is formed out of parts. Besides having the left and right brain, there are also parts of the brain that take care of emotions, mathematical calculations, body co-ordinations and many other tasks needed for our daily activities.

Electrical signals

Both work by transmitting “logic signals” to each of their parts. Signals are both electrical

i.e. A computer works by using binary (“on”/”off” logical signals known as “bits”, put together as “bytes” to represent data.) To communicate internally between components, represent information and store data.

In a way, neurons in the brain are either “on” or “off” by either firing an action potential or not firing an action potential.

Memory capacity

Both can increase their memory storage capacity.

Computer memory grows by adding computer chips/external hard drives/ pre-installed hard drives. Memories in the brain grow by stronger synaptic connections.


Both computers and brain have repair and “backup” systems.

The brain has “built-in back up systems” in some cases. If one pathway in the brain is damaged, there is often another pathway that will take over this function of the damaged pathway.Similar to a computer, where backup files can be stored in the computer.

Degrading with time

Both can degrade. Computers break down and brain cells deteriorate

Like all machines, computers break down with time. Brain cells deteriorate with age, losing their functions and slowing down because of lower counts of chemicals and hormones in the body.


Dating Tips For Short Guys – The Key to Your Success With Women


The dating world can be brutal. It’s even more so if you don’t fall within the standards set by society. If you’re a guy who is a little heavier, shorter or balder than the average fellow you may feel as though you’ve got an uphill battle on your hands when it comes to getting women to notice you. There are many dating tips for men in general, and some that are specific to men who feel they are lacking something that will make women notice them. An example is dating tips for short guys that can really give a man an advantage when it comes to meeting a great woman.

Many men who are short believe that they don’t stand a chance next to a tall guy. That’s not the case at all. Although some women are naturally attracted to taller men, many women don’t give a lick about height at all. One of the best dating tips for short men is what you lack in height you need to make up for in self confidence. Women love a man who is confident. This is very different than being arrogant though. Hold your head up high and never apologize for your height. Own it and celebrate it. Make it a non-issue in your own life and it won’t be an issue in the lives of the women you date.

It’s also extremely important when you approach a woman that you are engaged in everything she’s saying. One mistake that many men make is that they’ll dart their eyes around the room looking for other prospects while talking to a woman. Nothing turns a woman off more than this. Instead focus on the woman you chose and listen carefully to what she says. Ask her questions and be friendly and cordial. She’ll appreciate the fact that you are acting like a gentleman and your height will quickly take a backseat in her mind.

Be funny. This is one of the best dating tips for short guys. It’s not a myth that women enjoy funny men. They really do and if you are comical without being self deprecating, the woman will be instantly charmed. When a man is humorous it suggests so many things about his character. A woman instantly picks up on how fun he is and how outgoing he is if he’s able to be witty. This doesn’t mean extolling a long list of jokes but it does mean using subtle humor to your advantage.

Never let your height get in the way of meeting a woman you find attractive. Don’t make the assumption that she only likes tall guys before you talk to her. If you use the dating tips for short guys you’ll be surprised by how many women don’t even notice your height because they are so completely focused on your charm.


Where to Find Fashionable and Durable Wellington Boots


Whether you plan to wear your wellies for mucking out the stables, walking the dog or doing the school run, you shouldn’t have to compromise on style in the name of function. Luckily for welly lovers, there are numerous brands that now encapsulate both across their lines of wellies – so you can look great, and remain dry in even the harshest weather conditions.

And you don’t have to live somewhere rural in order to take advantage of the classic boot – wellies have become an essential wardrobe staple, even among city dwellers. So, whatever your style preference, you’re sure to be spoilt for choice.

Firstly, you don’t have to stick to dull, single colour wellies. Patterned wellies are no longer only made for children – adults can now enjoy a range of quality designs, all made from natural rubber for maximum comfort. Brands such as Evercreatures supply wellies in a wide range of styles (from ankle length to knee high) and in a variety of colours and patterns.

Evercreatures also design a children’s range – Little Creatures – which is made with high quality rubber and moulded insoles for maximum comfort for little feet. Children’s wellies also come with handles that make them easy to pull on and off, and are available in a range of designs, such as rainbow stripes, cow print and a selection of primary colours.

As well as offering a range of styles targeted at both men and women, Evercreatures also supplies a unique line of ‘wedding wellies’. These boots come in a cream and pink design with gusset ribbon detail, enabling any bride to look the part on her big day – whatever the British weather may have in store.

There are many other brands that incorporate both style and durability into their designs, namely Muck Boots and Bogs, for example. Muck Boots are made of neoprene – a superior material which enhances the durability of your boot, as well as providing comfort and support to the foot. They also have a multi-purpose rubber sole for optimum traction and stability underfoot.

Like the Evercreatures designs, Muck boots are 100% waterproof, but they are perhaps even more comfortable – with a cosy fleece lining and a comfortable range of -30 to 10 degrees. These boots are ideal for colder conditions, and will provide excellent insulation to keep your feet and legs warm. They can also be worn as an everyday welly.

Bogs Wellies have designs aimed specifically at both men and women. The women’s quilted floral model, for example, is perhaps one of the best examples of a boot that combines function and comfort with optimum style. These boots look especially feminine, with a curved calf to hug the back of the leg comfortably, and a maroon floral design.

Again, they are ideal for cooler climates, with a comfort rating of up to -40 degrees, but the interior DuraFresh technology will also keep feet fresh and stop them overheating if temperatures increase. They are made from 7mm thick waterproof Neo-tech material, with easy pull on handles and a four way stretch inner bootie.

It’s a good idea to find a welly store online where you can compare all of these different brands, and many more. Look out for discounts and promotions so you don’t miss the best deals, and why not see if you can save some pennies by signing up to a mailing list? Some companies will offer you a percentage off your first order.

Lastly, be sure to check out the delivery information so you won’t be left waiting around for your new wellies – particularly if you need them for a specific event like a festival.

It’s a good idea to familiarise yourself with the size guide too. Be sure to check if the sizes listed are US or UK sizes, and enquire about the site’s return policy in case you need to send them back.
