History And Clothing In Historic Japan

Spring 2010 is a clothes season like no different. A true feminine mod would have worn black and white patterned A-Line dresses (as favoured by Mary Quant). By the end of the sixties, fashion design began to vary as hems began to drop once more and brilliant bold coloured fabrics with psychedelic patterns were used for both men and women’s put on, an affect heightened by the hippie motion.

Amish girls put on plain calf size attire, sometimes in a dark strong colour. Fashion was initially carried over from the 50s, but they only seemed to look nice on older and mature women, a mode that meant ‘drab’ to the younger and upcoming “fashionistas”.

Though gloves got here in lots of colours and kinds, clean gloves whose shade was white or cream have been probably the most favored. The 70s was an exciting time for fashion and elegance. So when … Read More

Emmanuelle Charpentier (L) and Jennifer Doudna began a formidable partnership in 2011

Two scientists have been awarded the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for developing the tools to edit DNA.

Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna are the first two women to share the prize, which honours their work on the technology of genome editing.

Their discovery, known as Crispr-Cas9 “genetic scissors”, is a way of making specific and precise changes to the DNA contained in living cells.

They will split the prize money of 10 million krona (£861,200; $1,110,400).

Biological chemist Pernilla Wittung-Stafshede, commented: “The ability to cut DNA where you want has revolutionised the life sciences.”

Not only has the women’s technology been transformative for basic research, it could also be used to treat inherited illnesses.

Prof Charpentier, from the Max Planck Unit for the Science of Pathogens in Berlin, said it was

U.S. women organize watch parties for historic VP debate

By Makini Brice

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. vice presidential debate on Wednesday night will pitch Kamala Harris, the first woman of color on a major ticket, against a conservative male vice president – and some Americans, especially women, are gearing up to watch the fight.

Political groups, college associations and individuals around the country have organized mostly online “watch parties” as Harris debates U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, who is running with President Donald Trump in the Nov. 3 election.

“I really can tell that Kamala is ready,” said Rahdiah Barnes, the president of the National Association for Multi-Ethnicity in Communications in New York, which pushes for diversity in media, who has organized a non-partisan watch party online. “This is history. She has something to prove, and I’ve heard her say a couple of things over the past couple days, so I can know that she’s getting ready for

Situated in the hills of Kessler Park on Colorado Boulevard, this 1930s Tudor home has historic charm, updated details and a close proximity to the Stevens Park golf course and Bishop Arts District.

At 3,349 square feet, the home has five bedrooms, three bathrooms and one half-bath. There’s also a full apartment above the detached garage, and a backyard complete with a flagstone patio on the 0.24-acre lot.

Listing agent Kay Wood called it a “classic Kessler Park home” with its historic design, original leaded glass windows and slate roof, along with the tree-filled property.

She said current and previous owners of the home have consistently updated the home to keep it fresh while maintaining the original details and architectural style.

The home is two stories, with two bedrooms downstairs and three bedrooms upstairs. At the entryway, there’s a built-in wooden bench adjacent to the front door that gets natural

For more than 70 years, couples from all over the world tied the knot at the Wee Kirk o’the Heather Wedding Chapel in downtown Las Vegas.

Translated from Scottish, it means “the little chapel of the lucky flowers.” Now the flowers are gone, and so are the historic walls that witnessed countless love stories.

Executive director of the Nevada Preservation Foundation Heidi Swank said the chapel was recently featured on one of their home history tours.

“The owners were very excited about it, so I was totally unaware that it had sold in April,” Swank said.

Jack Paripovich with Complete Demo Services told FOX5 he found something he’s never seen in Las Vegas before.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a historic trailblazer, marked history one more time: On Friday, the late Supreme Court justice became the first woman and Jewish person to lie in state in the United States Capitol, an honor reserved for members of Congress, U.S. presidents or leaders of the military. She is only the second justice to be honored in this way; the other was William Taft, who was chief justice as well as president. 

Fact check: It’s true, Ginsburg and Scalia were close friends despite ideological differences

Ginsburg’s legacy of inspiring generations of women — many represented among the mourners who stood before her flag-draped casket — was on full display in the Capitol’s Statuary Hall, where centuries of the
