By Lee Blackm

Going out to a party or meeting up with some friends you havent seen in a long time? Its only normal to want to look at your best. You might be used to wearing shorts and a regular t-shirt but for special occasions such as this, its time to sport a new look. Ever try wearing a dress shirt? What is a dress shirt anyway? And isnt that too formal for a small gathering with friends on a night out? Well think again, your questions will be answered as you are about to find out the history and style of shirts worldwide.

First off, what is a dress shirt? Also referred to as a button-front or button-up shirt. It is a shirt with a collar and a full opening on the front from the collar to the hem; it also has long sleeves and cuffs. The front is fastened by buttons or studs and the cuffs also close with buttons or cuff links. These shirts are worn mostly by men while women wear blouses. These shirts are also usually accompanied by ties, blazers, coats, and other formal wear. However dress shirts nowadays are used for so much more. It has become a casual look in itself alone because lots of men sport shirts on non-formal gatherings as well. Here is a breakdown the different components of dress shirts so you know the differences in style and formality that will help you find the right shirt for you, whether youre buying one or having one made from a custom tailor.

First is the collar of the shirt. There are many styles of collars for dress shirts now. There is the spread collar which measures about 3 inches to 6 inches between the collar points. The wider collars are called the Windsor or cutaway collars and are used for more formal gatherings. It is dominant in the UK. There are also the point, straight, or small collars which measure around 2 inches to 3 inches between the points of the collar. Lastly is the button-down collar where the collar points are fastened down by buttons on the front of the shirt. Button-downs are more of a sporting look as they were patterned on the look of polo players. Other less common collar types that have gone out of fashion are the eyelet collar, tab collar, club collar, varsity spread collar, and the tunic collar. Detachable collars have also come in style for people who want different color schemes or patterns to their look.

The cuffs of dress shirts comprise of barrel cuffs, which is the standard being fastened by buttons. There are also the French cuffs which are more formal and fastened by cuff links. And last are the single cuffs which are the most formal which are double cuffs without the fold.

Other features for dress shirts make them look better or more formal such as the tails, plackets, pleats, and even pockets. It all depends on the kinds of Custom Dress Shirts youre aiming for. If in doubt, its always better to get a tailoring company or a local mens tailor to measure your lengths for a better fit.

Tailor made shirts are always the best outcome possible, so you might want to think about that before buying dress shirts that wont fit you well in stores or from an online tailor. So remember, dress shirts are not just for formal events anymore. Dress shirts can be worn anywhere to look the best you can for all to see.

Danish clothing company sells T-shirts to support FARC and PFLP

Friday, January 20, 2006 

A recently created Danish clothing company is selling on the internet T-shirts in order to support the clandestine radio station of the Colombian guerrilla group Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and the graphical workshop of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). In fact the money will be used by these groups to carry on their terrorist activities. FARC activities include kidnappings, masacres, bombs, extortions and the drug trade.

Fighters and Lovers is selling the T-shirts at 170 DKK (US$27.6), from which 35 DKK (US$5.7) are to be destinated to support both armed groups.

Anna Duever, Fighters and Lovers PR chief, said to Spanish news agency EFE that their objective is to “defend freedom and social justice, which is FARC and PFLP are fighting for”. Duever believes the fact the FARC has been included by the EU in its terrorist group list is a “political game”. “We pay our taxes in Denmark, and that money is used for financing the troops our government has sent to Iraq. That’s terrorism. Besides, in Colombia there’s a regime oppressing population and torturing and killing its people”, she said.

Colombian Foreign Affairs Minister, Carolina Barco, said to local media that “financing terrorist groups is unacceptable and goes against all the international norms. Yesterday [Tuesday 19] our ambassador contacted the Danish government, we sent a protest note and have demanded an explanation.”

A year ago, a Danish NGO named Oprør (“Rebelion”) stated it had donated money to the Colombian guerrilla. A new antiterrorism law in Denmark may punish it.

Nyjer Seed Bird Feeders How To Become Overrun By Goldfinches

Nyjer Seed Bird Feeders – How To Become Overrun By Goldfinches

by

Larry Jordan

Goldfinches, purple and house finches, pine siskins, and redpolls are all birds that will flock to your backyard with a nyjer seed bird feeder. It can be a thistle tube bird feeder or a thistle sock bird feeder or one of the newer style wire mesh thistle feeders.

Nyjer, nyger, niger and thistle are all names used to refer to a small black seed cultivated in India and Ethiopia for over a thousand years. The true niger seed comes from the Guizotia abyssinica plant which is an annual herb grown for its edible oil and seed. It is NOT a type of thistle and is not a weed. As a matter of fact, it is now grown in the United States.

Niger seed probably got confused with thistle because goldfinches are known to eat thistle seed and use the downy fluff from thistle plants for their nests. In an attempt to differentiate these two terms in the mind of the public, the Wild Bird Feeding Institute trademarked the name Nyjer in 1998. I don’t think that this was successful however because most people still think Nyjer seed is some kind of thistle and a noxious weed if allowed to grow.

When you purchase Nyjer seed, many companies still use the word thistle on the package which has the unintended result of confusing the public even more. This bird seed is imported from India and Ethiopia and by USDA regulations must be sterilized, not to keep the niger seed from spouting, but to keep other noxious weeds that are incidentally mixed in with the niger seed from sprouting. You can now get non-sterilized, American grown niger seed right here in the United States.

Because Nyjer seed is so expensive (over a dollar a pound in 2008) it is important to feed this seed in specially designed feeders. A good Nyjer seed bird feeder will allow several birds to feed at once without excess seed being wasted. The thistle tube bird feeders should be your first choice in my experience. They are made of polycarbonate tubes with small slits in the plastic, just large enough for the finches to pull out one seed at a time. This limits the amount of wasted seed.

The Nyjer seed bird feeders made of wire mesh would be my second choice. They hold large amounts of seed and allow flocking goldfinches to feed wherever they land, not being restricted to a perch. They are probably best used with a seed tray below to catch spilled seed.

A thistle sack bird feeder is an inexpensive choice as far as the initial cost of the feeder goes. Made of durable, fine mesh nylon, these feeders allow as many hungry finches to feed as can comfortably hang on the thistle sack. They now are available in black which makes the beautiful goldfinches really stand out. These mesh bags waste more seed than either of the other two Nyjer seed bird feeder types, costing you more in the long run because of wasted seed.

Which ever feeder you choose, you are guaranteed to have flocks of Goldfinches visiting your backyard!

Bird flu hits Philippines

Friday, July 8, 2005 

The first known case of bird flu in the Philippines has occurred at an isolated farm in a town just north of the capital Manila, the Philippine government has confirmed.

Agricultural Secretary Arthur Yap said it is not clear whether it is the deadly H5N1 strain responsible for the deaths of more than 50 people in Asia since 2003 but confirmed that a strain of flu, H5, had been found in ducks.

Mr. Yap told a news conference, “It is a low-risk flu strain found in three healthy ducks and the risk to human health is almost nil.”

Transportation and sales of live poultry within a three-kilometre radius of the affected farm has been banned by the government.
