Gone are the chunky, clumsy elevator shoes” of a few decades ago. Today’s styles have been inspired by designs seen last year on European runways, says Edward Caron, women’s shoe buyer/manager at Nordstrom in Westfarms mall. He cites the designer Prada for generating high bottom interest,” combining wedges with clam digger or Capri pants.

But wedges also look great with dresses, minis, even shorts.

Other eye catchers include the Anne Klein II line, and shoes from Kenneth Cole, both available at a variety of department stores.

Surprising to customers (and mothers) is that most wedges are supremely easy to wear. They’re the most comfortable heel you can own,” Caron says, adding that the full sole acts as a cushion.

Whatever your budget, there are a plethora of platforms on parade. In addition to those mentioned above, there are styles in abundance at Filene’s, 9 West, Wild Pair and Aldo, all of Westfarms, and at Contempo Casuals in Buckland Hills Mall.

I so happy that the word cards that I made from recycled old name cards, have a new use again! We used it for our Hanyu Pinyin revision. ), so I came out with this simple game for her to practice. I gave her a stack of the word cards and she is supposed to sort them out according to the 4 tones. For example, if she had the or cards, she had to place them into the 1st tone box and 3rd tone box respectively. Once she completes the whole exercise (usually about 10 20cards), she is allowed to have a small treat like a piece of chocolate or a candy. As she sees this drilling exercise as a game, she learns faster and enjoys the pinyin lesson more.

After playing the game for 2 weeks now (I try to have pinyin lesson with her once a week), she is able to recognize and differentiate the pinyin tones much better now.

We have just enrolled the girl in a Chinese school last Sunday! Actually, I never expected to enroll the girl so soon because we went there just to check the school out. The more surprising thing is that the girl would be attending their 1st grade program, instead of the kindergarten one. I was told by the administrator that there is no more vacancy left for their kindergarten classes, so I requested to sit in one of their 1st Grade class (with the girl of course!) to have a feel of how the class was conducted and the quality of the teacher.

As we were there just to observe the class, I did not prepare any paper nor pencil for the girl but the teacher was kind enough to give her a pencil and a paper so that she could learn the words with the class. When the teacher started giving a new lesson, the girl sat there and listened very attentively and practice her writing along with the other students. Frankly speaking, I was quite surprised to see how focus she was when the teacher was giving a lesson and I also didn expect to see her participating so actively in the class. This girl sometimes amazes me.

As the boy and DH were outside the classroom waiting for us and I thought I had observed enough, I asked the girl to come along with me to go home. Guess what? She said she want to stay in the class! Oh wow how can I refuse, right? So, we stayed. Then during the 10mins break from the class, I asked her if she really want to learn Chinese in this school. She nodded her head and said that she likes this school. That exactly what I need to know to make the decision of enrolling her in this school. But before I could register her, I needed the confirmation from the teacher if it is ok for the girl to join her class because the girl is actually younger than most of her classmates (almost 5yo vs 6 7yo). The teacher assessed the girl and said she will do fine in 1st Grade. So from this week onwards, my the girl will attend the Sunday Chinese school officially! Yay!

This week marks the start of a new school year, and I wanted to make our first Chinese lesson more interesting for The girl and so I used the Mid Autumn Festival, which is also known as Mooncake or Lantern festival, as our subject of study. First, we read a Chinese book () about the festival and then we discussed about the things we do (like admiring the moon, carry the lantern etc) and the special food we eat during the festival. Then, I also told her about the legend about Chang E who lived alone on the moon with her only companion the jade rabbit.

For our first craft, we decided to make our very own jade rabbit I mean, origami rabbit. I had to help her many times to complete this origami. To be fair, this wasn an easy origami to start with, but she said she enjoyed it a lot. So, I think I should let her learn some basic origami patterns first if she is really keen in the origami arts. Anyway, here our end products. Quite cute, right?

Talking about the jade rabbit, do you know why it was allowed to stay with Chang E? Here an interesting story, abstracted from this site.

One day, three immortals who were living in the heaven came to the earth. They asked a fox, a monkey and a rabbit to find some food for them respectively. The fox and the monkey both found something for the three immortals while the rabbit got nothing. The rabbit felt very sorry for the three immortals. Finally, he jumped into the fire and said to the three immortals me, please! the three immortal were deep moved by the rabbit. They decided to entitle the rabbit a reputation of Rabbit and let him accompany Chang in the Moon Palace.

What is Lantern festival without lanterns?

So, for our next craft, we just had to make paper lanterns! Here what we made with recycled gift wrap papers and some scrap construction papers.

The girl was really pleased with her lanterns and chain. She asked me to hang them on her door because they made her room looks Hmm I really wonder when will she grow out of this princess phase?

After the crafts, I asked The girl to draw a picture about the mid autumn festival and here what she drew.

Armed with an instructional video CD, some Chinese textbooks and activities books, I started teaching the girl Hanyu Pinyin. Actually, it more like learning hanyu pinyin with her since all I do is to run the Hanyu Pinyin instructional VCD on TV/computer, let the instructor in the VCD do the teaching and learn the pinyin together with her. Then, after each lesson, we will either do some activity worksheets together or revise the 4 tones of the pinyin together.

I find this is a much better way of teaching Pinyin to the little girl since I won feel stress out while trying to plan the curriculum or risk teaching my girl the wrong way of pronouncing the pinyin. Even though I have learned Hanyu Pinyin before, I cannot teach her myself since I tend to confuse over some pronunciations like sh with s, zh with z etc. But with the help of the instructional VCD, I feel more confident in coaching her the right pinyin pronunciations.

Anyway, I starting to feel a little drained by the Chinese HS program and so,in hope of keeping myself motivated, I think I am going use this space to keep track of our hanyu pinyin learning progress.

We have already started our 2008 CHS. This year I am trying a different approach. It will be more structured using a combination of Singapore kindergarten and P1 syllabus as guidelines.

This year objectives may seem to be more aggressive, but there is nothing to worry about. We are pretty flexible with what we want to do for our CHS and it is still very much child driven. If The girl enjoys, we will do it. If she is not, I can always teach her some other time. 🙂

This year objectives (tentative):

I want to start The girl on writing. She already writes reasonably well for her numbers and alphabets, so I don see there is any problem with learning to write Chinese characters.

Basic Chinese strokes : ,, , , etc

Simple Chinese characters such as , , (words with radicals focus).

The girl loves reading, so I hope to read more books with her this year.

We have also started reading some hand me down easy reader books. So far she is making good progress in reading these books by herself. I trying to make it a daily routine for her to read these books to me,

and hopefully she will pick up new words through repetitive reading.

ugg classic boots sale The Latin Dictionary

It is always nice to start off with a nice little introduction to Latin. In this lesson, the idea of the construction of Latin, how it works, and its basics will be discussed. This includes:

The Latin alphabet does not contain as many letters as English does, only 22 letters as opposed to 26. Regardless, Latin makes due with what it has and the 22 letters make a plethora of words. Here is the Latin alphabet in full:


Note that the letters missing are J, K, W, and Y. Occasionally, due to some Greek intermixing, K and Y may be present, but that normally isn’t so. Furthermore, in a classical Latin structure, U’s were written as V’s, but in our case we will make them all look like U’s. J’s in Latin are completely replaced with I’s in both aesthetics and phonetics. Latin is considered to be an inflected language. This means that the role of a word in the sentence is determined primarily by they way it ends. English is not inflected,
baby boy uggs uk The Latin Dictionary
and the role of the word is determined primarily on its position in the sentence. This means that when writing Latin sentences, the order of the words don’t matter as much. Order does play a small role in how sentences are read.

Observe the two English sentences. In the first one, we have a character who is a farmer. He sees meaning he is at that time performing the action of seeing. We don’t know what he sees, but we do know that he sees and apparently isn’t blind. In the Latin sentence, “agricola” means “farmer”1, and “videt” means “(something) sees”. Thus we see how the sentence translates.

But look at the next Latin sentence. “Agricolam” looks a lot like “agricola” but with an m on the end. Well, guess what? “Agricolam” and “agricola” mean the same thing: “farmer”! As well, “vidi” and “videt” both pertain to seeing. Why then do they look different? This is because Latin is inflected, and the ending of a particular word tells you what its role is. Because “agricola” ends in an m in the second sentence, we know that it is receiving the action of seeing. Because “vidi” ends in the di, we know that it is in the past tense first person (meaning “I” did something). Thus “I saw the farmer”. In English, we know the farmer receives the action of seeing primarily because it comes after the verb. Most of the letters are pronounced normally, but there are certain rules that need to be followed. But you shouldn’t have a hard time with these rules because they are much more black and white than the English ones!Always hard as in cat or coy. G will never sound like a J.

ugg boots cleaning kit the Late Show With Stephen Colbert

kids black ugg boots the Late Show With Stephen Colbert

So the Late Show With Stephen Colbert premiered on Tuesday we get an amen three episodes in, it’s a rousing good time so far.

But we can’t give Stephen Colbert all the credit. In fact, a huge tip of the hat goes to Jon Batiste, the multifaceted jazz artist whom the new Late Show host had the good sense to hire as his bandleader and musical director.

In addition to being rather easy on the eyes, his energy is infectious, his smile lights up the studio and we could watch him play the melodica all night! (Yes, that’s what that cool piano flute hybrid he enters the room playing is called.)

1. What Can’t He Play What Doesn’t He Do?!: In addition to the melodica, the 28 year old New Yorker by way of New Orleans plays piano, Hammond organ and bass, and he sings. He didn’t hone in on jazz as his genre of choice till he was 14, but then he took off running. He self released his first album at 17, Times in New Orleans; got a master’s from the Juilliard School, where he was mentored by Wynton Marsalis; toured with Cassandra Wilson; jammed with Lenny Kravitz and Prince; was on the HBO series Treme; scored the organ music for Spike Lee’s Red Hook Summer and is artistic director at large for the National Jazz Museum in Harlem. Did we mention he’s only 28?

4. He Has Jazz in His Blood: “Earliest musical memory is probably being scared stiff with my family’s band as a youngster on stage playing the conga drums,” Batiste recalled to Rolling Stone this summer about going onstage with the Batiste Brothers Band when he was 6 or 7. “Yep. Trial by fire. That was it. You didn’t have any real instruction other than, ‘Go. Play.’ One word instructions. ‘Play. Go.'”

Batiste also told the Wall Street Journal recently,
ugg boots cleaning kit the Late Show With Stephen Colbert
“I’m from Kenner, Louisiana, where music is played for every occasion in life. Families get really good because they play a lot together.”

5. Meet Stay Human: Batiste met drummer Joe Saylor and basisst Phil Kuehler at Juilliard, and after time spent performing as a trio they hooked up with alto saxophonist Eddie Barbash and Ibanda Ruhumbika, who plays tuba. And all together, they play inspired jazz that also draws from soul, funk, hip hop, rock and Afro Caribbean beats. They released their first album, Social Music, in 2013. Talking about what they mean by “social music,” Batiste told WSJ, “I thought about how I want people to react, how I want people to feel when they see a performance and hear the sounds.”

7. Colbert Is His Spirit Animal: Batiste explained to Rolling Stone this summer that he wouldn’t have taken such a mainstream day job if he didn’t know that their styles (creative, boundary pushing, outside the box) meshed. “The team there, we have a very similar philosophy and vision about the way they do jokes and the way we do music,” he said. “In another scenario I wouldn’t even take a day gig like that because I think it would be too restrictive.” Moreover, Colbert “believes in exposing people to different assets of American music,” Batiste added. “And as I was saying, the idea of de categorizing of American music. that concept resonates with him and that’s why he likes what we do, you know?”

ladies ugg gloves The last concubine

how to tell if uggs are fake The last concubine

As China’s last imperial consort, Li Yuqin was enslaved from the age of 15. The territory in this case was occupied not by the British, but the Japanese, who in 1931 invaded Manchuria, in the north east of China, and installed Pu Yi, the deposed Qing dynasty emperor, as their “puppet” monarch. For one 15 year old schoolgirl, Japan’s victory over the Chinese bestowed an unwanted historical claim to fame. Li Yuqin was taken from her home by a Japanese official to be China’s last imperial consort the last concubine of the last emperor.

This was back in 1943, when Pu Yi’s empress, Wan Rong, was all but destroyed by opium, his first concubine had divorced him, and a second concubine had died in mysterious circumstances (possible murdered by the Japanese) the previous year. The puppet emperor’s Japanese minders decided that Pu Yi needed a new consort, and he was invited to take his pick from photographs of local schoolgirls.

These days, the 69 year old Li still lives in Changchun, the north east Chinese city where between 1943 and 1945 she resided with Pu Yi in the makeshift royal residence, the converted former headquarters of the local salt administration. Following the death this month of Pu Yi’s second wife, Li Shuxian (a nurse whom he married in 1962 after being released from prison by the Communists), Li Yuqin is the only surviving female consort of the last emperor.

Ms Li still remembers the day when several of the prettiest girls in her class were suddenly selected to have their photographs taken. A month later, Japanese officials arrived at her home and told her parents that she was being sent to the imperial palace “to study”. Her parents tried to refuse. “But the Japanese officer said firmly, this was His Majesty’s order, no matter whether you were willing or not, you must go.”

The young girl did not realise what awaited her. “Because I thought I went there to study, I even took my school bag. I was very innocent then, thinking I could flee back if I didn’t like it. In fact it was absolutely impossible to escape.

“When I arrived, it was already dark. Pu Yi looked very happy. But I had a headache then, because I had also thought it over a lot the day before and was afraid I would be swindled . Pu Yi asked me if I wanted dinner, I said no. I felt he was like a school teacher, a big brother. He was very kind and looked younger than his real age, 37. He even touched my head and asked if I had a fever. When he learnt I had, he called to the servants for medicine and doctor and insisted I should eat something.”

They sat for a while. “Then he asked me to sleep with him in his bedroom. But I said I came here to study, how could I sleep with a boy student or a male teacher? And I hadn’t even seen all my other classmates yet.” Pu Yi accepted the situation with good grace. “He immediately ordered servants to clean my room, and he also dined there. Then he happily left, asking me to take medicine and an injection.”

It was all rather confusing for a naive girl. “We were not as mature as the teenagers now. At the age of 14 or 15 we even didn’t know that it was the mother who gave birth to us. Instead we believed in our mama who said we were picked up from the rubbish bins.”

Within a month, Pu Yi started telling Li that she was very lucky to be able to “serve” the emperor. “Gradually I was confused about my identity there, as a student or a servant . Later he talked about marriage, and I felt surprised. I considered if I went back home, because people would not know what really happened, my reputation wouldn’t be good . All the time, his manner was sincere, he kept saying he liked me. I remember this point very vividly. In his eyes I was a pure and naive little girl who loved singing and laughing, so he kept asking me to be his wife.”

Part of Li’s attraction may have been her lack of obsequiousness, compared with the courtiers. “One day in his study, I saw lots of books and a portrait of him, and he asked me if the portrait resembled him. I said no’. He laughed delightedly, and said nobody dared to say that before.”

In fact, the physical relationship which started was blighted by Pu Yi’s impotence. “We slept lots of times, but sleeping together is different from making love. As far as I know, Pu Yi only made love twice in his life, once with Wan Rong, and once with me, much later . I always don’t like this topic, because that’s his privacy, but it is not a shameful thing. He had illness and was not treated properly, and it caused him lifelong pain . I was too young and wilful at that time. If I was happy, maybe I would allow him to touch me,
ladies ugg gloves The last concubine
and if I wasn’t happy, I wouldn’t . At the age of 16 or 17, I was like a rose with thorn.”

The puppet emperor was still very much an autocrat, however, and Li remembers that everyone’s lives revolved around his whims. “Sometimes, when his order was disobeyed, he could be very cruel. He never beat me, but he beat his servants fiercely, sometimes even to death. Then he became frightened, and prayed so that the dead could go to heaven.”

Though Pu Yi was clearly fond of her, when the Japanese regime in Manchuria was about to topple in 1945, the emperor told his sobbing concubine to take the train while he prepared to flee in a small airplane. “I was far too preoccupied with saving my own life to care whether there would be a train for her or not,” Pu Yi later wrote in his autobiography. Li remembers: “Those days he kept saying to me, I made you suffer a lot. I made you suffer a lot’ with sad clouds on his features . He said we would meet again soon. I felt sad because he left in such a hurry. I went to his room and took the wood combs and towels he had left for keepsake. Later I lost them.”

Pu Yi never made it to Japan. He was taken prisoner by advancing Soviet troops, who in 1950 handed him over to the victorious Chinese communists. Li fled with the opium addicted Empress, who had also been abandoned by the Emperor. “In fact, she also wanted to escape, but couldn’t. So she just committed suicide slowly by taking opium.” She died in 1946.

For a few years, Li lived “in a state of half starvation” with relatives of Pu Yi. Then she went back home, but in Changchun could not find any work. “Finally, it was with the party’s help that I became a state cadre, a white collar worker, in a library, which I liked very much.”

But she still found herself facing criticism for not divorcing Pu Yi, and her family was suffering as a result. “I thought there was no hope for Pu Yi to come back again, but I longed for a normal family life; I love children. I am a woman, I also wanted a child.”

There then followed perhaps the most bizarre part of the last concubine’s experiences. By this time, Pu Yi was being held in Fushun prison, in neighbouring Liaoning province, and Li had visited a few times. But when she arrived at the prison she was shown into a room with a big double bed. The party wanted a reconciliation.

“It was the leader in Pu Yi’s unit who wanted to reform Pu Yi, but his way was a little blunt. I was not happy with their arrangement to let me sleep with him for one night. Couples can have many ways to love each other, and I felt my self respect was hurt.” But this was the first and only time, according to Li, that the couple did have sex. Li nevertheless yearned to be free, and by the end of that year had been granted a divorce.

Two years later, Li married her present husband, a TV station engineer, and now has a son and two grandchildren. “When we were fiances, I told him everything. He understood I was forced to do what I did. I did nothing harmful. By then I was a state cadre, and I could enjoy a citizen’s right. Sometimes people do say things, but we just face them with a clean conscience.”

This perhaps explains why these days Li talks about the past only for money. When The Independent asked to meet her, a price of pounds 400 was quoted by Changchun government officials. This offer was declined, and a tape recording instead obtained of a two hour conversation by Li with a group of other Western journalists.

To this day, Li remains benevolent in her judgement of Pu Yi, who was finally released from prison in 1959 and sent to work in Peking’s botanical gardens until he died, childless, of cancer in 1967. “Pu Yi has many aspects, he was timid, suspicious, irritable, but he respected his ancestors and felt guilty that the Qing dynasty ended during his reign . As an emperor, he brought a lot of disaster to the Chinese people and became a collaborator. But as a human being, he also suffered a lot of pain and misery much heavier than the common people’s,” said Lin

ugg boots cleaner See a physician by teleconference at Station Mall

children ugg See a physician by teleconference at Station Mall


The doctors are in and are seeing patients in the new walk in clinic, which opened its doors in the Station Mall in late 2012.

Since this clinic is a bit different I visited it to find out what was happening in the facility close to the new Wal Mart at the west end of the mall. Everything was the same as I had experienced in past visits to the walk in clinics at the hospital or Group Health Centre. I showed my Ontario Health Card and briefly explained the nature of my problem.

After a short time I met Fawzy Beshara, a graduate of Cairo University medical program in Egypt. He has written the exams to become a doctor in Canada and is waiting to do his residency here.

Fawzy screens patients, examines them and takes a full history just as a resident would do to assist a physician.

The doctor arrived onscreen and the consultation began.

The big difference here is that Dr. Nayyar Razvi was in his office in Toronto and I was still in a clinic in Sault Ste. Marie.

Fawzy remains in the room the entire time and is prepared to offer any assistance required to the patient or the doctor. The Toronto physician appears on a large screen monitor in the consultation room and the patient appears on his monitor. The image and sound were crystal clear. It was akin to a face to face conversation as questions were asked and answered in real time.

Patients who might have any fears of being recorded and showing up as a star on the Web can relax.

The consultation is not recorded and the equipment is purchased,
ugg boots cleaner See a physician by teleconference at Station Mall
installed and serviced by companies selected by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care so there is no chance that your medical issues will be broadcast around the world.

Had I required a prescription, Razvi would have written one for me and I could have had it filled either at the pharmacy at that clinic; or the pharmacy of my choice.

Telemedicine uses telecommunication and information technology to provide clinical health care at a distance. It helps eliminate distance barriers and improve access to medical services that might not be consistently available in some communities.

It reduces the strain on existing clinics and allows access to a doctor for those who may not have one at this time. Anyone with a valid Ontario Health Card is welcome to use the clinic with a few exclusion criteria because the service is provided via the Ontario Telemedicine Network. They are not set up to treat emergency presentations such as severe chest pain or abdominal pain.

On occasion Fawzy has had an ambulance summoned to transport patients to the Sault Area Hospital for treatment. The clinic does neither suturing nor the removal of sutures and does not give injections. The exception here is the flu shot, which is available at the clinic pharmacy.

Narcotic prescriptions or renewals of prescriptions or renewals of any controlled substance are also not handled at the clinic. Pelvic or genital exams are not done at this site. The clinic also prefers not to treat children under the age of four years.

An added bonus is the fact that since the clinic is in the Station Mall you can check in to the clinic, leave your cell phone number,
ugg boots cleaner See a physician by teleconference at Station Mall
shop in the mall and receive a phone call about 10 minutes before it is your turn to see the doctor. And parking is free of charge.
