I bought this size by accident but omg they are so funny. They make brilliant orphan annie hair, i kid you not even on boob length hair.

Leave them in over night and i have gorgeous hair for work. Lasts all day and i only needed one pack. I have been searching for this size of foam hair curler for many months – could get small ones and extra large ones but no large size. These large sized curlers are perfect for my shoulder length hair, creating soft waves rather than frizzy curls, so at long last my hair is looking its bestone small point – the hole in the foam is slightly too large for the spindle and so the curler can unwind when in place which is slightly annoying, but as this is the only product of this size on offer it is a small price to pay in order to look beautiful. Great bouncy curls that lasted two days. Bought these in several different sizes for more natural looking curls. Did not need any setting sprays/lotions or hair spray at all. Results may vary for those who have thicker or wiry strands of hair. I just put the curls in and wrap my head with a scarf to keep curlers in place while i sleep. These rollers are good and as advertised. I have bought this item from the chemist before so knew i would like item but i ordered large and they were not as big as normal.

India vs New Zealand Test series: VVS Laxman faces litmus test ahead of selection

first_imgWhen the national selectors meet in Mumbai on Friday to pick the Indian squad for the two-match Test series against New Zealand, the much will revolve around veteran VVS Laxman.The 37-year-old classical batsman, who has played 134 Tests and scored 8,781 runs at 45.97, is seen on the last legs of his Test career; he is already out of the shorter versions of the game.Some experts believe that the selectors should immediately replace Laxman with a younger batsman while others feel that he should be persisted with for some more time, especially after India’s eight successive Test defeats abroad. Four of them came in England and four in Australia, and all of them mainly due to batting failures.Rahul Dravid announced his retirement after the tour of Australia where he was regularly bowled, creating a huge void in the middle order.Laxman was the poorest performer among the mainline batsmen in Australia, scoring just 155 runs in eight innings. No wonder tongues started wagging. Now, it remains to be seen how long rope the selectors give to the batsman from Hyderabad, where the first Test will start on August 23.However, the five selectors, a majority of them will complete their tenure at September-end, might be tempted to pick Laxman, particularly looking at his record in India as well as the fear of losing a ninth Test on a trot. A defeat is highly unlikely against a team like New Zealand, which was beaten 2- 0 in the two-Test series and lost the ODI series 1-4. Also, their main spinner Daniel Vettori has been ruled out of India tour with a groin injury.advertisementLaxman’s contribution to India’s cause – particularly his epochal 281 in the win over Australia at Eden Gardens in 2001 – can never be underestimated, despite his shortcomings as a fielder and running between the wickets.Even without Laxman, the batting line-up looks solid with Sachin Tendulkar, who is set to play is first international match as a Member of Parliament, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, and captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni being the pillars. Solid Ajinkya Rahane is expected to be the reserve opener.This line-up could be boosted if Cheteshwar Pujara, widely seen in the Dravid mould, is also picked. Having played three Tests in 2010, Pujara performed well on the recent India A tour of the West Indies, where he also led the team.However, Rohit Sharma, who has also been touted as a future Test batsman, has so far failed to live up to his promise.In bowling, pacer Zaheer Khan, who like Sehwag returned from Sri Lanka a couple of days ago without playing fifth and final ODI and the Twenty20 due to injuries, and Umesh Yadav are expected to share the new ball. The selectors will go by the physiotherapists’ reports on Zaheer and Sehwag.Left-arm pacer Irfan Pathan, who was the most successful Indian bowler with eight wickets in five ODIs in Sri Lanka, could make a comeback after four years on the back of this fine performance. The 27-year-old Baroda pacer last played a Test in April 2008. In the spin department, off-spinner R Ashwin and left-armer Pragyan Ojha are expected to retain their places while Harbhajan Singh might have to wait for some more time to stage a comeback.last_img read more

US legislation on whitesupremacist terror cites Quebec City mosque shooting

first_imgWASHINGTON – Legislation in the United States Congress aimed at countering white-supremacist violence cites the killings in a Quebec City mosque as one of several cautionary examples of the threat of domestic terrorism.The killing of six people in the Canadian mosque last year is among just over a half-dozen incidents cited in a bill introduced this month in the House of Representatives, the companion to a bill introduced earlier in the U.S. Senate.The text of the legislation refers to a right-wing extremist who had expressed anti-Muslim views being charged with murder for allegedly killing six people and injuring 19 in a shooting rampage at a mosque in Quebec City.“It was the first-ever mass shooting at a mosque in North America,” says the text of the legislation for Bill 4918, the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2018.“Prime Minister Trudeau labelled it a terrorist attack.”The bill also mentions a shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin; the Charlottesville white-supremacist rally; a shooting at a Jewish community centre in Kansas; the murder of an African-American man in New York City; and the mass-shooting in a Charleston church.It cites statistics indicating that since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, far more Americans have been killed by white, right-wing terrorists than by radical Muslims.The bill would require the federal government to produce annual reports on domestic terrorism, provide training for local law enforcement to better recognize the threat and steer certain law-enforcement funds toward the issue.The bill’s sponsor said the problem is worse than commonly recognized.“I urge my colleagues to join me in the urgent effort to address the dramatically rising threat of domestic terrorism,” said Brad Schneider, an Illinois Democrat, while introducing the bill in the House of Representatives.“A recent FBI-Department of Homeland Security joint intelligence bulletin found white supremacist organizations were responsible for 49 homicides and 29 attacks from 2000 to 2016 — more than any other domestic extremist movement.”The bill’s chances of adoption are far from assured.Only a tiny minority of bills introduced in the U.S. Congress become law and this one was introduced by the minority party in both chambers: five Democrats co-sponsored the bill in the House of Representatives, while 13 Democrats co-sponsored it in the Senate.The U.S. Congress did pass a symbolic resolution last fall in the wake of the Charlottesville incident, urging the president to speak out against hate groups that espouse racism, extremism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, and white supremacy and to use all resources available to fight those groups.Also, the new director of the FBI says there are currently 1,000 open investigations into domestic terrorist groups — with a similar number of probes into groups with radical Islamist ideology.Alexandre Bissonnette faces 12 charges — including six counts of first-degree murder — in connection with the Quebec City attack. His trial is scheduled to begin on March 26.last_img read more

Fredettes lawyer urges jury to opt for manslaughter in double murder case

first_imgSAINT-JEROME, Que. — A Quebec man accused of the murder of two people, including his ex-wife, had reached his breaking point the day of the killings but didn’t intend to kill anyone, his lawyer told a jury today.Louis-Alexandre Martin delivered his opening statement to jurors in the case of Ugo Fredette, asking them not to absolve him but to set aside first-degree murder charges and find him guilty of manslaughter.Fredette has pleaded not guilty to the premeditated slayings of Veronique Barbe and Yvon Lacasse.Martin says to find one guilty of murder, the Crown must demonstrate intent, adding that Fredette simply snapped and blacked out during much of the crimes he is accused of committing.The Crown’s case against Fredette was that he couldn’t accept the end of his relationship with Barbe, 41, so he allegedly stabbed her 17 times in front of a child before fleeing with the youngster. While on the lam, he allegedly murdered Yvon Lacasse, 71, before stealing his car at a rest stop.Fredette, 43, was arrested Sept. 15, 2017, in Ontario. He was reportedly spotted by citizens across Quebec during his alleged run from authorities.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 26, 2019.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Bud Light debuts bigger nutrition labels

first_imgDETROIT — Beer drinkers can’t claim blissful ignorance for much longer.Starting next month, packages of Bud Light will have prominent labels showing the beer’s calories and ingredients as well as the amount of fat, carbohydrates and protein in a serving.Bud Light is likely the first of many to make the move. The labels aren’t legally required, but major beer makers agreed in 2016 to voluntarily disclose nutrition facts on their products by 2020.Many brands, including Corona Light, Guinness, Heineken and Coors Light, already have calories and other nutrition information on their bottles or packaging. But it’s in small type, or hidden on the bottom of the six-pack, and ingredients aren’t listed.Bud Light went with a big, black-and-white label, similar to the ones required by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on packaged foods. At the top, Bud Light lists its four ingredients: water, barley, rice and hops. Below that, it shows the calories in a 12-ounce bottle or can (110) and other facts. Bud Light contains 2 per cent of the recommended daily amount of carbohydrates, for example.“We want to be transparent and give people the thing they are used to seeing,” said Andy Goeler, vice-president of marketing for Bud Light.Individual bottles and cans of Bud Light won’t have the full labels, but they’ll continue to have some nutrition information printed in small type.Goeler said the brand’s research shows younger drinkers, in particular, want to know what’s in their beer.“They have grown up really in tune to ingredients,” he said.Goeler said he didn’t know when other brands owned by Bud Light parent Anheuser-Busch — including Michelob and Stella Artois — would adopt bigger nutrition labels.But the question is: Will such labels make a difference in the choices consumers make? At least one study suggests they won’t.Researchers at Cornell University and Louisiana State University tracked what happened when diners were given menus with calorie counts. It found that diners who knew the calorie counts ordered lower-calorie appetizers and entrees, but the calorie counts had little impact on orders for drinks and desserts.John Cawley, an economics professor at Cornell and one of the authors of the study, said diners seemed to respond most to information they didn’t already know. They were probably surprised by the calories in some appetizers, for example, but already knew the general range for a glass of beer or wine.Cawley said it’s telling that a light beer would be the most forthcoming about its ingredients and nutrition information. Bud Light’s sibling, Budweiser, has 35 more calories and four additional grams of carbohydrates, according to the brand’s website.Ultimately, the biggest changes may come from manufacturers themselves, not consumers, Cawley said. Since nutrition labels were first required in the early 1990s, companies have competed to look healthier or remove objectionable ingredients like trans fats.“That is actually the biggest public health victory of all,” Cawley said.Dee-Ann Durbin, The Associated Presslast_img read more

While neither Oakland nor Kansas City has officially clinched the postseason, we currently give both teams a greater than 99 percent chance, and only one of them (probably the Chiefs) will make it in as the AFC West champion. Denver is still clinging to that second wild card spot, but their loss to the Titans in Week 14 set their chances back. They’ll now face a brutal end-of-season schedule, facing New England, Kansas City and Oakland.

That number is rounded, but we use a little more precision when we determine the rankings, and Tampa Bay-Dallas is the (very slightly) more impactful game. Washington would miss the playoffs if the season ended today and would fall to having just a 1-in-5 chance of making them with a loss here. Green Bay31243310– 1. Detroit (9-4) vs. N.Y.

Dallas is guaranteed a postseason slot, but if you choose an outcome to this game on our new NFL predictions page you’ll see that a win improves their chance of a first-round bye to 99 percent, and a loss drops them to 80 percent. This makes a huge impact on their Super Bowl probabilities, so the Cowboys — who are at risk of dipping into a quarterback controversy — have quite a bit to play for here. N.Y.

But Detroit’s remarkable season has come against a pretty weak schedule, and they’ll have to wrap up the year against the Giants, Cowboys and Packers. The winner of this game would be nearly assured of a playoff spot, but the loser will be in decent shape. Green Bay, which is in the hunt for the NFC North, is rooting for the Giants. Tampa Bay, Washington, Atlanta and (somewhat surprisingly) Minnesota would prefer a Detroit win to improve their wild card standing. Tampa Bay54%85%42%43– With three weeks left in the NFL season, 11 playoff spots are open. That means that most of the remaining 48 games — save some stinkers like 49ers-Rams — will make some impact on the postseason. What are this week’s biggest games?For the last month, we’ve been using the model behind our 2016 NFL predictions to calculate how much each team’s playoff chances “swing” depending on the outcome of each game. For example, we currently give the Green Bay Packers a 31 percent chance of making the playoffs. If they beat Chicago this week, we project those chances will increase to 40 percent (independent of other games). If they lose, their chances drop to 11 percent.1Our NFL predictions are based on 100,000 simulations of the rest of the season and are updated after every game ends. In the simulations in which Green Bay beats Chicago, they make the playoffs 40 percent of the time. In simulations where they lose, they make the playoffs 11 percent of the time. But it’s unlikely that Green Bay’s playoff probabilities will be exactly 40 percent or exactly 11 percent at the end of Week 15, because the team’s chances depend on the outcome of several games, not just their own. The Packers’ current chances are much closer to 40 percent than to 11 percent because they are much more likely to beat the Bears (69 percent) than lose to them (31 percent). That’s a 29 percentage point swing! By doing this same math for every matchup and factoring in how each team’s resulting record will affect others’ playoff odds, we can find out which games are the most impactful.But “most impactful” only tells part of the story. Let’s say you’re a Green Bay fan, or a fan of any other team on the playoff bubble. Which set of outcomes would help the most this week? To help answer this question, we’ve updated our predictions page to allow you to pick the outcomes of every game for Weeks 15 through 17, so you can see how each matchup affects every team’s probabilities. In the “best case” scenario I could find for the Packers, they’d beat the Bears, but also Dallas would beat Tampa Bay, San Francisco would beat Atlanta, the New York Giants would beat Detroit, Indianapolis would beat Minnesota, and Carolina would beat Washington.With these six outcomes, Green Bay’s playoff chances rise to 58 percent. Go create your own scenarios! The five biggest games of Week 15 are below.

Wins against the Chiefs, Jaguars and Texans in the final three weeks will leave the Titans with a 10-6 record and an AFC South title. And yet, we give them just a 24 percent chance of making the playoffs. One reason for this is that this week’s matchup in Kansas City, where the Titans will be major underdogs by any measure. But it’s also possible that our ratings are understating the Titans’ overall strength. Elo carries over from season to season, and while most teams have shaken whatever effect 2015 had on their rating, Tennessee started in such a huge hole — their 2015 end-of-season rating was 1272 — that we’re still rating them as a significantly below-average team. A win in Kansas City would send their Elo, and their playoff chances, skyrocketing.CORRECTION (Dec. 15, 2:13 p.m.): A previous version of this article misstated the best-case scenario for the Packers in Week 15. In that scenario, the best outcome for Green Bay would be the Giants beating the Lions, not the other way around.Check out our latest NFL predictions. read more
