The volume of watches selling for less than $212 (CHF 200) fell 14 percent, while the price range of $212 to $531 (‎CHF 200 to CHF 500) was the only export price segment that showed a positive result and increased by nearly 20 percent. Goods priced between $531 and $3187 (CHF 500 and CHF 3,000) declined by 7 percent.

Expion CEO Peter Heffring says the findings demonstrate the value of quality over quantity:</p><p><strong><a href=>tiffany rings</a></strong> Key findings showcase that compelling content is still king, and brands that organically are tied to style and pop culture, like luxury brands, tend to benefit from the strongest engagement with their fans.</p><p><strong><a href=>cheap tiffany & co</a></strong> The report released recently examined the top 50 retail brands and their performance, naming luxury brands Tiffany & Co. and Victoria’s Secret the retail industry leaders in Facebook engagement. With their content-is-king style, luxury brands edge out the quantity approach employed by Walmart, the report says.</p><p><strong><a href=>tiffany outlet locations</a></strong> </p><p> </p><p> Some more interesting findings: </p>There was a 50/50 split across retailers in terms of volume growth. Twenty-five saw an uptick in social volume, the other half saw a decline. Coach and Guess were the only two top 10 brands with positive growth.Video didn’t kill the picture star. Despite the growing popularity of video sharing, image posts still reigned on Facebook, representing 80 percent of the content those 50 retailers posted during the study’s timeframe. Video posts made up a measly 3 percent of posted content.Luxury brands dominate Facebook marketing because of their captivating products (like jewelry and purses) and ties to pop culture. Drug stores, supermarkets and value stores that depend on mass appeal pool up at the bottom of the rankings.Head-to-head comparisons show which retailers lead their given sectors. In terms of user engagement, Whole Foods lost to Publix and Kohl’s lost to Macy’s. To beat the competition, brands should take a page from leading competitors, diversify content and stop putting up posts that just push products.Bath & Body Works raised the bar on user participation, engaging more than 250,000 fans with product promotion leading up to Mother’s Day. It garnered fives times more shares than any other single post, proving that contests that are easy to enter encourage Facebook users to share content.Timing may not be everything, but it’s worth minding. The month of June, pretty much every Friday and daily between 2 and 5 p.m. were over-saturated with marketing posts (poor performing ones at that).

Francis has done a great deal, mostly to reverse negative impressions of the church and to afford it a new lease on life. Yet in terms of concrete acts of governance, he had a point.<p><strong><a href=>the north face outlet</a></strong> Preview our Peace & Justice special section . You won''t find this content online, so subscribe today !</p><p>Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York, who helped elect Francis in March, told NCR during a July 24 interview that, among other qualities, the cardinals wanted someone with good managerial skills. Dolan said that so far, that part of the equation hasn''t been as obvious.</p><p>I would expect that after the summer lull, we''ll see more signs of management changes, he said.</p><p>Dolan''s forecast confirms something already clear five months ago: This Latin American outsider was elected on a strong reform mandate. The question is, once he gets down to brass tacks, what kind of revolution will Francis lead?</p><p>Four areas seem destined to form the front lines.</p><p> Finances </p><p>Left to his own devices, Francis might not have opted to start with the Vatican bank. He sees it as an important institution but, as he put it during a homily in June, necessary only up to a certain point.</p><p>Yet circumstances have aligned to make the bank an acid test of Francis'' commitment to change. Earlier this summer, the bank''s top two officials resigned amid an Italian money-laundering probe and Italian police arrested a Vatican accountant on charges of trying to smuggle $26 million in cash into Italy and using his Vatican bank accounts to disguise funds.</p><p>On the plane from Rio de Janeiro to Rome July 28, Francis sketched out three options for the bank, formally known as the Institute for the Works of Religion:</p>Turning it into an ethical bank;Transforming it into a charitable assistance fund;Closing it.Most observers regard the third option as the least probable, if arguably the cleanest. The fact is, Catholic religious orders and charitable organizations that operate in different corners of the world, often in circumstances where financial systems are underdeveloped, need ways to protect their assets and transfer funds easily. If there were no Vatican bank, popes probably would face pressure to invent one.</p>The ethical banking option is considered the most likely outcome, even if the term itself is a bit nebulous. In general, ethical banks share three characteristics: commitment to best practices of transparency, with regularly published balance sheets and a receptiveness to outside review; use of assets for socially responsible purposes, often by accepting lower profit margins than regular commercial banks; and the involvement of stakeholders and community members in governance.</p>In Italy, the Banca Popolare Etica is often cited as a model. It is sponsored by labor and farm groups, shop-owner associations, even the Italian Scouts.</p>Signs of change are in the air. Vatican bank officials have hired the Washington, D.C.-based Promontory Financial Group to conduct a detailed review of accounts, and most observers believe it will become more difficult for individuals, as opposed to organizations, to use the bank''s services. The bank also recently launched a website that confirms the amount of assets under management ($9.4 billion) and the number of account holders (18,900).</p>As hard as fixing the bank may be, however, it''s only a preliminary step to the bigger challenge: promoting transparency at lower levels of the church, where the real money is concentrated and where hit-and-miss oversight sometimes spells disaster.</p>That truth has been well-captured by a recent meltdown in Slovenia, where the country''s two archbishops resigned amid the collapse of the Maribor archdiocese. After the country''s emergence from communism, church officials in Maribor built a credit-driven financial colossus, at one point owning three holding companies that controlled at least 50 different firms, including a cable TV outlet that aired late-night porn.</p>The holding companies recently went belly-up with a debt estimated at more than $1 billion, equivalent to 2 percent of the country''s gross domestic product. Among other things, a pension fund with the savings of some 65,000 small investors reportedly was wiped out.</p>Francis sent a signal of accountability by accepting the archbishops'' resignations, just two years after the previous archbishop of Maribor was pressured to step aside for his role in the mess. The task now is to craft policies and to shape culture so that similar implosions are avoided elsewhere.</p>Sex abuse </p>Another front where critics believe the church needs more transparency is its response to the child sexual abuse scandals.</p>Boston Cardinal Sean O''Malley, who has more than two decades of experience dealing with the scandals, recently placed two ideas on the table. In a July 26 interview with NCR , O''Malley said Francis should:</p>Convene the presidents of bishops'' conferences around the world and try to convince those who have not adopted strong anti-abuse guidelines to do so;Adopt the same anti-abuse protocols in the Vatican that have become standard practice in dioceses and other Catholic venues around the world, including background checks and screening of all personnel, training in abuse detection and prevention, and instructions in how to handle complaints.It''s not clear whether Francis will act on those recommendations, although O''Malley is in a unique position to move the ball. He''s the lone American among the eight cardinals tapped in April to assist Francis in governance of the universal church.</p>Francis made an interesting point about the issue during his onboard news conference, distinguishing between sins of one''s past that may be forgiven and forgotten, and crimes, such as the abuse of minors, that require a different response.</p>It was a small but potentially telling sign that Francis intends to take a firm line. Many observers believe one test will be whether Francis extends the tough accountability the church now has for priests who abuse also to bishops who mismanage abuse complaints. Senior churchmen expressed confidence to NCR that Francis will do so, though to date there''s been no clear move along those lines.</p>Collegiality </p>In some ways, Francis'' most important step toward fostering greater collegiality may already have come with the April 13 decision to create the council of eight cardinals. The effect is to distribute power away from the Vatican and toward the heads of local churches.</p>Among other things, the decision implies clipping the wings of the Vatican''s Secretariat of State. Already it has lost some of its power as a gatekeeper. For instance, O''Malley said that when he has questions or wants to make a report to the pope, his contact is directly with Francis rather than having to go through the Secretariat of State.</p>O''Malley also said the eight cardinals want to act as spokesmen for the concerns and ideas of other bishops. He''s interviewing all the other cardinals in North America and has asked them for advice. Others are doing the same. Cardinal Francisco Errázuriz of Chile, for instance, polled members of the Episcopal Conference of Latin America (CELAM) during a recent meeting in Panama.</p>Cardinal Oscar Rodríguez Maradiaga, the coordinator of the group of eight cardinals, met with Francis while he was in Brazil for World Youth Day in July. Rodríguez said he received approval to put together an instrumentum laboris , or working paper, that would outline recommendations for change.</p>Another front where Francis seems likely to move quickly is the Synod of Bishops, which was founded under Pope Paul VI as an organ of collegial governance. On the plane, Francis hinted at the need for reform in the methodology of the synod, which many observers believe is too large, too cumbersome and too focused on single topics to act as the sounding board a pope needs.</p>Cardinal George Pell of Sydney suggested in June that a smaller council of bishops could meet with the pope for several hours, two or three times a year, to discuss a specific topic at length. Francis said in his press conference that when the eight cardinals meet with him in October, they''ll ponder changes to the system.</p>Marriage and divorce </p>There are also signs that Francis may be prepared to untie some longstanding pastoral knots, beginning with divorced and remarried Catholics. Under current discipline, those Catholics are unable to receive the Eucharist, a practice that has long been a source of heartache in the trenches.</p>In his remarks on the plane, Francis signaled interest in the principle of economy found in the Orthodox tradition, according to which a second union may be blessed after dispensing from the vows of marriage.</p>He also said the question has to be looked at in the wider context of the pastoral care of marriage, a theme he said the council of eight cardinals and a future Synod of Bishops will examine. The practice of annulments, he said, has to be looked at again.</p>Resistance </p>In general, Francis appears open to allowing new pastoral initiatives to surface from below, instead of being driven from the top down. In a July 25 meeting with youth from Argentina during his Brazil trip, he pointedly encouraged them to make a mess.</p>I want the church to go out onto the streets, he said. I want us to resist everything worldly, everything static, everything comfortable, everything to do with clericalism, everything that might make us closed in on ourselves.</p>But every revolution has winners and losers, and although Francis may insist he hasn''t encountered any resistance, that''s not to say it doesn''t exist. So far, there are five circles where opposition to the Francis revolution seems to be emerging.</p>The first is liturgical traditionalists, recently irritated with a decision to forbid the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate from saying the older Latin Mass without specific permission -- a decision, some argue, at odds with Pope Benedict XVI''s 2007 ruling liberalizing use of the older liturgy.Second, Francis is drawing mixed reviews among some church conservatives not so much for anything he''s said or done, but because of a diffuse perception that his emphases are not theirs. In a late July interview with NCR , Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia said his sense is that conservatives generally have not been really happy with Francis.Discontent may fester in pro-life circles, for instance, if Francis continues his policy of avoiding public commentary on issues such as abortion and gay marriage. Asked on the papal plane why he didn''t discuss those matters in Brazil, a country that has recently liberalized both, he said that the church already has expressed itself perfectly on this and it wasn''t necessary to go back over it.</p>Third, the secular right also has expressed some dismay. Reacting to his July 8 visit to the southern Mediterranean island of Lampedusa, a major point of arrival for migrants from Africa and the Middle East, anti-immigration politicians in Italy suggested that the pope should mind his own business.Fourth, Catholic progressives may become disenchanted if their hopes for Francis do not match what he''s able, or willing, to deliver. Already, some advocates for women priests and gay rights have taken to the blogosphere to grouse about what they see as a mismatch between the pope''s talk about mercy and his concrete positions on those issues.Fifth, there''s an ill-defined old guard in the Vatican that may be resistant to see its traditional power and privilege slip away. So far no one identified with this group has publicly broken ranks, although some have detected its fingerprints on a nasty scandal involving Francis'' handpicked prelate, or delegate, to help reform the Vatican bank, an Italian cleric named Msgr. Battista Ricca. In mid-July, Italian journalist Sandro Magister published a sensational piece detailing charges that when Ricca was a Vatican diplomat in Uruguay from 1990 to 2001, he had a live-in male lover, cruised gay bars and was once beaten up, and another time brought a young man back to the embassy and ended up trapped in an elevator with him overnight.<p>For now, Francis appears to be standing by his man. Aboard the papal plane, he said a preliminary investigation showed there''s nothing to what they''ve accused him of. (It was a question about Ricca that elicited the pope''s now-famous Who am I to judge? line about gays.)</p><p>However the Ricca case shakes out, anyone tasked by Francis with implementing reform probably can expect any skeletons lurking in his closet to be at risk of exposure.</p><p> A hot autumn </p><p>Though Francis is not taking the usual August break at castel Gandolfo, most observers don''t expect him to start rolling out significant structural reforms until the fall.</p><p>One highly anticipated decision is who he''ll name as his secretary of state -- a position that, albeit diminished by Francis'' tendency to reach outside the Vatican system, still packs considerable punch.</p><p>To date, the pope has not tipped his hand. Many observers believe Italian Cardinal Giuseppe Bertello, a veteran diplomat and currently head of the Vatican City State, is in pole position. Given Francis'' capacity for surprise, however, conventional wisdom may not apply.</p><p>Francis also will soon face important choices to head flagship dioceses. In Cologne, Germany, Cardinal Joachim Meisner is 79, while Cardinal Antonio Rouco Varela in Madrid and Cardinal Francis George in Chicago both are 76 -- all beyond the customary retirement age.</p><p>Francis has laid out the kind of bishop he wants. In a speech in Brazil, he said, Bishops must be pastors, close to people, fathers and brothers, and gentle, patient and merciful.</p><p>Bishops must be men who love poverty, both interior poverty, as freedom before the Lord, and exterior poverty, as simplicity and austerity of life, he said. Men who do not think and behave like ''princes.'' Men who are not ambitious, who are married to one church without having their eyes on another.</p><p>The question is whether he can find flesh-and-blood prelates to match that vision, a defining challenge in a church where personnel often is policy.</p><p>The Roman stage thus seems set for what the Italians call un autunno caldo -- a hot autumn. The trick for Francis, it would seem, is to keep the reform fires burning without making the pot boil over.</p><p>[John L. Allen Jr. is NCR senior correspondent.

[b][url=]tiffany outlet online[/url][/b][b]<a href=>tiffany outlet</a>[/b][b][url=]tiffany jewelry outlet[/url][/b] Former Tiffany’s Exec Admits Guilt in Theft of $1.2 Million in Jewelryby admin on August 5, 2013 [b][url=]tiffany[/url][/b] Ingrid Lederhaas-Okun, a former vice president of product development at the New York headquarters of internationally known luxury jeweler Tiffany & Co., has accepted a plea agreement and pled guilty  to charges that she stole over 65 individual pieces of jewelry from her former employer valued at more than $1.2 million.[b]<a href=>tiffany outlet online</a>[/b] In her executive position, the 46 year old Lederhaas-Okun held privileges that enabled her to check out jewelry from inventory in order to show pieces to buyers, manufacturers, and others for business purposes . Her position also enabled Lederhaas-Okun to “cancel” the cost of jewelry checked out from inventory if, for example, the jewelry was damaged and therefore unsaleable. [b]<a href=>tiffany & co</a>[/b] From January 2011 to February 2013, Lederhaas-Okun checked out various pieces of jewelry before canceling the inventory. However, instead of returning the canceled pieces to Tiffany & Co. to be destroyed , Lederhaas-Okun sold the pieces to a well-known Manhattan jewelry buyer and reseller, claiming the jewelry as her own.[b][url=]wholesale tiffany jewelry[/url][/b] The theft was discovered when Lederhaas-Okun’s position was eliminated due to downsizing in February 2013  and the missing jewelry was identified in a routine audit following her termination. When initially contacted by Tiffany & Co. regarding the discrepancy, Lederhaas-Okun claimed that the missing pieces were in an envelope at her desk  in an attempt to conceal the crime.[b][url=]tiffany rings[/url][/b] One reason that Lederhaas-Okun was able to continually perpetuate theft may lay with Tiffany & Co.’s missing inventory investigation policies, which only call for an investigation if the piece of jewelry found to be missing is valued over $25,000 . By checking out and cancelling pieces valued under that amount, Lederhaas-Okun was able to continue her practice without raising any red flags. Lederhaas-Okun’s executive position may also have been a factor.[b][url=]tiffany and co outlet[/url][/b] Employee theft is a common problem, and even Lederhaas-Okun’s case is not entirely unique. The not-for-profit Southwest Research Institute recently discovered that former employee Thomas Moreno stole some $500,000 from the organization in a scheme to order unauthorized supplies, which were later resold on eBay . In another case, Karen Febles, a former executive assistant with Citibank, was sentenced earlier this month to over four years in prison for altering checks signed by a Saloman Brothers executive and withholding the difference for personal gain amounting to $1.3 million over a period of six years .The techniques used to investigate and prosecute white collar crimes such as these are evolving. Many times, these crimes are prosecuted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as corporate or financial crimes, over which the agency has broad jurisdiction . The FBI is honing its ability to discover and prosecute white collar and financial crime  in part through enhanced technologies, enabling the agency to report a rise in pending corporate fraud cases of over 25% between 2007 and 2011. Legal analysis firm Mondaq recently noted the rise in importance of e-mails in particular to prove intent, state of mind, and other burdens of proof for prosecutors.In exchange for Lederhaas-Okun’s guilty plea, the US Attorney’s office agreed to drop the charges of wire fraud that had originally been pressed against her in the case , which could have carried a penalty of up to twenty years in prison . Lederhaas-Okun has also agreed to make restitution of over $2.2 million to Tiffany & Co.. Lederhaas-Okun will be sentenced on December 10, and faces up to ten years in prison on one count of interstate transportation of stolen property.[b]<a href=>tiffany jewelry</a>[/b][b][url=]tiffany & co[/url][/b]

[b][url=]Beautiful Clothes[/url][/b][b][url=]dress[/url][/b][b][url=]women clothing[/url][/b] Liu San Jie transports audience to Tang dynastyBy PEGGY LOH| johor@0 commentsPOPULAR MUSICAL: The show has been performed more than 2,000 times in China and abroad, and was made into a movie in 1961[b][url=]Chinese clothes[/url][/b] JOHOR BAHRU: FOR two nights, the audience at the Liu San Jie musical show presented at the Southern University College was transported back to the Tang dynasty as they were mesmerised by live performances of the classic legend and music of the Zhuang people of China.[b][url=]Fairy gorgeous clothing[/url][/b] Since it was created in 1960, this show has been performed more than 2,000 times in China and abroad and made into a movie in 1961. In 2006, the Liu San Jie show was recognised as a national cultural heritage of China.[b][url=]Beautiful Clothes[/url][/b] As the movie version of the musical helped to spread the popularity of Liu San Jie to Chinese-speaking communities outside China, in 2003 movie director Zhang Yimou created The Impressions of Liu San Jie, an outdoor live show which has become the most lucrative cultural income earner for the city of Guilin.[b][url=]women clothing[/url][/b] Presented live every night, beside the Li River to a backdrop of mountains, the one-hour show with more than 600 actors is a popular tourist attraction.[b][url=]Han Chinese clothing[/url][/b] The stage presentation of Liu San Jie in Johor Baru was the result of a partnership among the Malaysia-China Arts & Cultural Association, Southern University College and the generous sponsorship of the Country Garden Group, one of China''s leading integrated property developers.[b][url=]Song Dynasty clothing[/url][/b] The cast of 28 artistes was hosted by the Country Garden Group. The proceeds went to the building fund and international education fund of Southern University College.Ambassador of the People''s Republic of China Chai Xi, who was in the audience for the first show, praised the Country Garden Group and encouraged other Chinese investors in Malaysia to follow its example and do something for the community as they do business here.At the end of the second show, Datuk Tan Liang Soon, the deputy chairman of the board of directors of Southern University College, announced that the proceeds from the two shows and other contributions totalled RM350,000."The Country Garden Group is the first Chinese company to support arts and culture in Johor Baru," said Tan Chai Puan, head of the arts & cultural development department of Southern University College. Tan is also adviser to the Malaysia-China Arts & Cultural Association.When she was 18, Wang Yee Jia, the lead singer who played the role of Liu San Jie, was selected from more than a thousand candidates.After performing successfully in the outdoor show for a few years, she returned to the stage version of Liu San Jie.The two nights in Johor Baru were the 80th and 81st shows in Wang''s career.The Zhuang people believe that Liu San Jie was not a mythical figure but truly existed and her birthplace was Yizhou town in Guangxi province.She was a farmer''s daughter named Liu Shanhua. But, as she was the third child, she was nicknamed Liu San Jie (third sister in the Liu family). She was gifted in reciting traditional poems from a very young age and when she was inspired by beautiful scenery she had the talent to create and sing folk songs.The Zhuang people are one of the 56 ethnic groups in China, second only to the Han who account for more than 91 per cent of the country''s population.The legend of Liu San Jie was originally an oral tradition and was later found in romance, drama scripts and county annals in Guangxi.Similar stories are also found among ethnic groups, such as the Miao, Yao, Buyi, Mulao and Han in Guangdong, Hunan, Yunnan and Guizhou.There are various versions of the legend but the story line presented in Johor Baru featured Liu San Jie as a talented folk singer who beat three hired singers with her witty and eloquent responses in antiphonal singing to avoid becoming a concubine to a greedy landlord.Ethnic groups of South China, particularly Guangxi, practise antiphonal singing, an ancient art form quite similar to our dondang sayang type of pantun, where two or more singers challenge and outwit each other through poetic songs.Another interesting scene depicted a Zhuang courtship custom, where Liu San Jie showed interest in her suitor by giving him an embroidered ball."The way Liu San Jie opposed the landlord''s unfairness by using arts and culture is an inspiration to us because very often things can be worked out through non-violent methods," said Malaysia-China Arts & Cultural Association vice-president Y. C. Yap.Colourful costumes added to the pleasure of watching the performances of the matchmaker (left) and the greedy landlord (right) who wanted to take Liu San Jie as his concubine.The appreciative audience clapping during the performance in the auditorium at Southern University College.The performers taking a final bow.The musical was performed by a cast of 28.Datuk Tan Liang Soon presenting a souvenir to a representative of the cast of Liu San Jie.

Photo from Wiki Commons.’A....i oow oow ooo ooo!” The back-to-pack wolf cry goes spiralling around the forest and in seconds, two wolves come tearing through the trees. They rush up to the pack leaders, eager to know what the emergency is. When they find there is none, they seem momentarily miffed but soon content themselves with pulling some classic wolfish poses on conveniently situated tree stumps. I’m a few yards from them, snapping away with my camera. Being photographed clearly stokes the smouldering coals of their vanity.This brand new walking-with-wolves experience is a world away from your usual wolf-spotting trip. The latter has to contend with the fact that normally this noble creature, being a blithe and wily spirit, cares nothing for the fact that you have a limited amount of annual leave and an onerous bucket list to tick off. It thus cannot be relied upon to turn up at a prescribed venue at a pre-arranged time, but is happy to condemn you to days of aimless wandering across godless far-flung tundra in the hope that at some stage, your guide will point towards a distant wood and cry: “There’s a wolf! That little speck to the right of the ... oh, gone now.”When my friend Kat and I went to see timber wolves Maska and Kajika we didn’t even leave the British mainland – we simply hopped on a train to the Cumbrian resort of Grange-over-Sands. Furthermore, after some sniffing, licking and gentle biting of our outstretched fists, the wolves let us join their incipient pack for an afternoon’s sortie, which was pretty obliging really.We met up with the surrogate leaders of the pack, human bipeds Dee and Daniel (who had howled the back-to-pack cry) at their farmhouse at Ayside, a few miles north of Grange. A swift Land Rover ride later and we were in a pine wood above lake Windermere, the largest natural lake in England, where brothers Maska and Kajika piled out of the back to begin an instant recce of the area. This isn’t quite the return of the wolf into the English wilds after 270 years, though, as Dee explains: “These are timber wolves with some Czechoslovakian wolf dog bred into them because it’s illegal to let pure-bred wolves run free in Britain.” Such a spoilsport, the government.The siblings, just 24 weeks old yet already larger than full-grown Alsatians, are vying for the position of alpha male. Maska is bigger and edges the rough-and-tumbles we watch, but size isn’t everything in the lupine world. “Kajika is the one with the natural leadership abilities,” Daniel points out, “so he could end up as the leader with Maska as his enforcer.” Apparently there are alpha, beta, gamma, delta and even omega wolves, so Maska and Kajika are keen to nab the top roles before their pack gets any bigger.As we strolled through the pines the rivals foraged about beneath the trees, building up a mental map of smells while trying to outdo each other, not only in shows of strength but in their ability to make clever decisions and discover important information about their surroundings. We watched them fascinated and, I confess, somewhat smug that we were privy to what was going on in their great big heads. And great big they are, too – the brothers will double in size over the next 18 months, weighing in at up to a huge nine stones.While Dee fed the boys a treat of cheese straight from a tube (it simulates a mother’s teat, apparently), Daniel regaled us with wolfy facts – they have eight distinct howls, for example, and their hearing is nine times better than the average dog’s – and taught us how to stroke them safely. This is essential knowledge when their bite can exert a pressure of 1,500lb per sq inch (1,054 tonnes per sq m). With my hand at Kajika’s jaw-line, I slowly worked my way upwards until his flattened ears gave me the “yes, you can stroke my head” signal. I can tell you, gaining the trust of a wolf is the new swimming with dolphins.It’s fitting that the first place in Britain you can walk with wolves is close to the spot where England’s last wild wolf was reportedly killed, in the 14th Century. On a tour of the Unsworth’s Yard micro-brewery in the nearby village of Cartmel, we were shown a copy of Mrs Jerome Mercier’s tale of the killing. It involves a spurned son, a dashed romance, a mysterious knight and a happy ending for all – except the wolf.It’s all good courtly stuff. The only fly in the ointment is that wolves are known to have roamed England as late as the 1740s. A more plausible story is that a local landowner organised a mass hunt for a wolf, who was finally cornered on a promontory called Humphrey Head.On a starlit walk along the promenade we saw Humphrey Head’s huge bulk lowering in the darkness. But what was that sound we could hear on the breeze? The wind playing over the marshes perhaps? Or was it the ghostly howl of England’s last wolf calling out to England’s newest pack? – Guardian News & Media Review Tags / Keywords:Cumbria, England, Wolves, KeswickRelated StoriesPlease wait.More in EuropeThe hills of Slovenia are a hidden delightGlorious opulenceExplore Diagon AlleyCroatian getawayLuxury London hotel gets the graffiti treatment[b][url=]watches[/url][/b] advertisementMore NewsA (free) walk down memory lane in Kuala Lumpur Bed bugs, bad service begone SIM-ple solutions are often the best!

[b][url=]stores sell tiffany jewelry[/url][/b][b][url=]stores sell tiffany jewelry[/url][/b][b]<a href=>sell tiffany and co jewelry</a>[/b] Former Tiffany’s exec pleads guilty to stealing jewelryBy David DesRoches on July 30, 2013 in Lead News , Police & Fire · 0 Comments [b][url=]tiffany[/url][/b] The Darien woman and former vice president of a division of Tiffany & Company pleaded guilty on Friday to one charge stemming from a claim that she stole more than $1.3 million in jewelry while employed at the renown diamond dealer.[b][url=]cheap tiffany & co jewelry[/url][/b] Ingrid Lederhaas-Okun, 46, faces up to 30 years in prison after being accused by the FBI of stealing jewelry from her former employer and selling the jewels to a competitor.[b][url=]tiffany and co outlet[/url][/b] “I knew it was illegal to steal, and I did so regardless… I’m very sorry,” Lederhaas-Okun told the court, according to the Associated Press .[b][url=]cheap tiffany[/url][/b] Sabrina P. Shroff, a public defender who’s representing Lederhaas-Okun, told The Darien Times that her client “pled within three weeks of her arrest as she wanted to accept responsibility for her actions and start making restitution.”[b][url=]cheap tiffany & co jewelry[/url][/b] Shroff said her client agreed to pay $2 million in restitution, in addition to paying for Tiffany’s legal counsel.[b][url=]tiffany outlet locations[/url][/b] The alleged scheme began to unravel in November 2012, following an announcement by Tiffany’s that it was going to undertake a full physical inventory review. Lederhaas-Okun told the company that approximately $1.5 million worth of jewelry that she had checked out would have to be written off, the FBI said.The items that were reported missing when Tiffany’s performed its audit included numerous diamond bracelets, platinum or gold diamond drop and hoop earrings, platinum diamond rings, and platinum and diamond pendants, according to the FBI.After taking the jewelry, she then allegedly sold it to another company, a leading international buyer and reseller of jewelry with an office in midtown Manhattan, although the FBI has not released the name of the buyer.The jewelry reseller paid for the merchandise that Lederhaas-Okun had stolen either by paying her or her husband in transactions arranged either by Lederhaas-Okun or a friend working on her behalf, the FBI claimed.Her husband is not being charged, and neither is the female friend, according to court records. Money made from the transactions was deposited into a bank account that both her and her husband have access to, records show. He was allegedly paid through her friend a total sum of $580,040, and Lederhaas-Okun received $714,585, according to court documents.The FBI reviewed 31 transaction forms, and said the buyer sent Lederhaas-Okun roughly 75 checks that were then deposited into her and her husband’s joint account. At least one check was in the amount of $47,400, records show.Lederhaas-Okun sold more than 200 items to the unnamed company, although she is only being accused of selling 165 pieces of stolen jewelry. The FBI said that she signed a waiver on each sale that indicated the jewelry was hers and “free of any legal encumbrances.”Town records show that her and her husband have lived in Darien since 2004. Her husband purchased their home for $625,000 in 1997, and the couple renovated the home in 2004. It’s now appraised at $3.1 million, according to town records.Lederhaas-Okun is charged with one count of wire fraud and one count of interstate transportation of stolen property, the later of which she pleaded guilty, according to her lawyer.ddesroches@ Related Posts:FBI charges former Tiffany’s exec for stealing $1.3…Darien Police: Thieves steal $50K-plus in Tiffany jewels$32,000 in jewels taken from Darien homeHomeowner interrupts Halloween burglary, costume jewelry…Rob Morrison pleads guilty, agrees to probation programTags: Associated Press , fbi , Ingrid Lederhaas-Okun , jewel theft , tiffany''s Previous PostLetter: What are our leaders doing?Next PostThirteen unlocked cars burglarized over weekendAbout author David DesRoches TweetSubmit your commentYou must be logged in to post a comment.[b][url=]tiffany outlet store[/url][/b][b][url=]tiffany outlet locations[/url][/b]

<strong><a href=>Christian Louboutin outlet</a></strong> | <strong><a href=>fashion christian louboutin outlet</a></strong> | <strong><a href=>Christian Louboutin outlet</a></strong><br> 3M, GM, Pulte Report; Facebook Goes from Licking to Liking; New Jobless Claims By Dan Berman </p> Dan Berman</p> Posts By Dan Berman | Hot Stock Minute  –  Thu, Jul 25, 2013 7:09 AM EDTEmail0 Recommend 4 Tweet 0Share 0PrintGM, 3M and more companies are just out with earnings. Let''s start with the country''s biggest automaker. GM ( GM ) beat estimates posting profits of 84-cents a share excluding items. Expectations had been for 75-cents. Revenue also raced past the consensus at more than $39-billion. The stock is now up 2%.</p><p><strong><a href=>clshoes</a></strong> On to 3M ( MMM ), we''ve got a less impressive beat there: earnings of $1.71 a share, beating estimates by a penny on revenue that was razor thin above expectations. Consumer giant Colgate-Palmolive ( CL ) has matched estimates with earnings of 70-cents a share excluding items. But PulteGroup ( PHM ) had a big miss: earnings of 9-cents a share after a 17-cent charge. Estimates had been for 30-cents a share. Revenue was also below estimates so that stock is now down 8%.</p><p><strong><a href=>christian louboutin shoe sale</a></strong> Facebook ( FB ) could now be called a social climber. Shares have been up more than 23% since the company reported earnings after yesterday''s closing bell. That put them above $30 for the first time since January. Here''s why: The company reported adjusted earnings of 19-cents a share a nickel better than expectations. Revenue was also higher than expected at $1.81 billion. Some other fast facts for you: mobile ads made up 41% of the total ad revenue. That''s up from 30% in the prior quarter. In addition, the company says it has surpassed 1,000,000 active advertisers. Does this mean the company has turned a corner, and could even bolt above its IPO price. Yahoo! Finance Senior Columnist Mike Santoli has more in the video above.</p><p><strong><a href=>christian louboutin shoes on sale outlet</a></strong> Now breaking news: key economic data released at 8:30, right as we began streaming live to your computer. The Labor Department says there were 343,000 new jobless claims filed last week basically in line with expectations had been for about 342,000 claims. Last week''s number was the lowest in more than two months at 334,000. Also just out, The Commerce Department says durable goods rose 4.2% in June. Expectations were for a rise of about 1.15%. They climbed 3.6% in May.</p><p><strong><a href=>christian louboutin wedding shoes</a></strong> Insider trading charges are expected to be announced today against SAC Capital. This is of course the hedge fund started by Steven A Cohen. Word is, the firm will be indicted, as opposed to Cohen himself. The SEC has brought a separate case against Cohen in which he could be barred from managing other people''s money.</p><p><strong><a href=>christian louboutin shoes for cheap</a></strong> STOCKS TO WATCH</p><p><strong><a href=>authentic christian louboutin on sale</a></strong> Amazon reports after the closing bell. Amazon ( AMZN ) is expected to post earnings of 5-cents a share, up from a penny a year ago. As for revenue, consensus is that it will rise 23% to roughly $15.57 billion. Analysts say Amazon has been improving its margins. However the company has been shelling out stacks of cash particularly as it builds a library for its streaming video service. Amazon hit an all-time high just last week, topping $309 a share. It''s currently up 16% year-to-date.</p><p>Also reporting after the bell is Starbucks ( SBUX ). The coffee giant is expected to show significant growth over the past year with profits soaring almost 25% to 53-cents a share on revenue of $3.72 billion. Analysts credit Starbucks with maintaining a strong pipeline of products that helps to drive same-store sales. Part of this strategy includes the announcement this week that Starbucks is teaming with Danone to sell Greek yogurt at its coffeehouses. Starbucks stock is up 32% over the past year and set a multi-year high last week, just pennies below $70. By the way, regional competitor Dunkin Donuts ( DNKN ) is out with its quarterly results this morning. The chain beat on earnings by a penny, but missed slightly on revenue which was $182.5 million, a 6% rise form last year.</p><p>Chinese internet company Baidu ( BIDU ) has been up as much as 17% since yesterday''s close. Baidu reported earnings after the closing bell, posting profits of $1.26 a share, a nickel better than expectations. Revenue was also above consensus at $1.23 billion. The company says it added a record number of online customers for the quarter. It''s also reporting success pushing into mobile, so it has upped the outlook for the current quarter. Shares of Baidu have recently been on a tear up 24% this month, even before this morning''s gains.</p><p>Crocs ( CROX ) has lost its footing, down 23% in the premarket. The company says it got tripped up in the past quarter reporting earnings of 48-cents a share excluding items when expectations were for 64-cents. Revenue was almost in line with the forecast at $364-million. Crocs is blaming cold weather for the quarter saying it was forced to offer many unplanned discounts. Moving forward, the company is also lowering its outlook. Crocs has been trying to expand beyond its plastic footwear into wedges, sandals and golf shoes. Shares were up about 22% over the past year, but the plunge we''re seeing this morning would all but erase those gains.</p>Related Quotes:FB37.019-1.201(-3.14%)AMZN293.97-2.72(-0.92%)SBUX72.64-0.29(-0.40%)CROX13.47+0.06(+0.45%)BIDU141.53+4.80(+3.51%)GOOG881.25-4.26(-0.48%)^N22513,823.40-43.60(-0.31%)^NDX3,141.06+15.14(+0.48%)^GSPC1,694.16+4.69(+0.28%)^DJI15,451.01+31.33(+0.20%)^NY7,345.01+17.48(+0.24%)YHOO28.34-0.01(-0.04%)Loading...Pagination Previous Amazon & Starbucks Reporting; Baidu Up Double Digits; Crocs Gets Tripped Up Facebook Surge Leads Tech Higher Next<strong><a href=>christian louboutin shoes for cheap</a></strong><br><strong><a href=>christian louboutin sale</a></strong><br>
