On good days, Ms. Anderson understands Cpl. Anderson is gone bridal wraps and he would want her to push ahead with her life. On bad days, she expects him to come walking in the door at any moment.Is the government’s quarrel with the niqab is that it represents a patriarchal practice it believes diminishes women’s autonomy and, ultimately, safety?Still, I can’t help but wish there were wider recognition for all the work costume designers do in service to a film and its actors, both men and women. What of Lucie Bates for Hanna? George Clooney’s sad-sack Hawaiian wardrobe in The Descendants? Oliver’s betoggled duffle coat in Submarine? Glenn Close’s disguises in Albert Nobbs?-Oh man, please let video from this weekend’s Variety tribute to Amy Poehler?surface! It sounded amazing, and the guest list (Will Ferrell, Adam Scott, Sarah Silverman, Maya Rudolph) reads like my ultimate dream dinner party. This cute clip of Poehler and Will Arnett just isn’t enough!In his first address as king, Felipe tried to reassure the politicians and public that things had changed: “These are my convictions about the Crown, which from today I shall embody: a renewed monarchy for new times. And I undertake my task with energy, with enthusiasm and with the open and innovative spirit that has inspired the men and women of my generation.”Speaking of getting “used to” something, the rising exterior temperatures this week and the collective heat produced by spectators have created accumulations of frost on many spots of the ice surface.As an introduction to Christmas in Germany, my guide described some of the more common practices.

For instance, Elisabeth said, families typically decorate their trees wedding jackets on Dec. 24 with white lights, candles, silvery thread, glass-blown balls or straw ornaments – simple and restrained. Children receive their presents on Christmas Eve. Elisabeth, who was born in 1944, remembers the gift from her youth: a cookie.January 17: Prince William arrives in Auckland for an official visit to New Zealand. (He flies business class in an attempt to be a “regular guy.”) While playing rugby with Auckland’s under-10 rugby squad, he’s hit in the groin with the ball; a youngster says proudly afterwards: “We got him in the crown jewels.

”“In this part of the city there are more poor than ever, more families in trouble, more and more people who need help but can’t find it,” Cuomo said. “Even worse: There are elderly people who tremble in the basements of the houses there. And there are people who sleep in the city streets, in the gutter, where the glitter doesn’t show. There are ghettos where thousands of young people, without a job or an education, give their lives away to drug dealers every day. There is despair, Mr. President, in the faces that you don’t see, in the places that you don’t visit in your shining city.”“The aristocracy are many things, but they’re not always as hip, say, as the group of friends that Middleton has, the young Royals,” said Susan Catto, senior editor at Hello! Canada (and, as such, on constant Royal watch).

“They do tend to wear a lot of the same styles — bold colours, skirt suits — that’s a real Royal trope, if you will.”Thank heaven designer belts for small mercies. The day played out benignly: A gin and tonic too many, a happy dinner of local corn and halibut. It was well past midnight when heads hit pillows.With 68 artists from 14 countries playing, the organizers describe the event as “surreal perfection”, a place where “indie singer-songwriters, roots and country veterans and blues masters rub sonic shoulders with global electronica divas, Latin rhythm masters, Ukrainian rock bands and Congolese hipsters… in a verdant urban setting that grounds a laidback, loving, ecologically astute community-for-a-day.”It’s easier not to think about this since it’s certainly not an uplifting subject. I admit there are times I sometimes dread going to visit my parents now. Both live in a long-term care facility and physically they are doing reasonably well. A lifetime working hard on the farm and eating homegrown food has kept their bodies relatively strong. But Dad no longer recognizes me, cannot communicate, and can no longer see. When I kiss him on the cheek and say hi, I can’t even tell if he knows I am there. Mom has declined rapidly in the last three years, but still recognizes me. Just. The woman who loved to travel and was so interested in politics and the world now spends much of her time gazing off into the middle distance. No longer interested in reading or watching TV, she just exists, answering simple questions with monosyllabic answers. She’s forgotten how to dial the phone, forgotten her friends, forgotten how to properly dress herself.
