Deafening silence in his beloved city By John BurtonIt was a terrible ending to their French vacation for Mayor Donald Burden and his wife, Mary Lea, one which included a few days in their beloved Paris – coinciding with last week’s horrific terrorist attacks.The Burdens returned to the U.S. late on Sunday “Safe, exhausted, somewhat confused about all the happenings,” the mayor relayed to friends who expressed concern about the couple, knowing their travel plans, “and thinking about the innocent and the innocence of Paris.“Our hearts go out to all,” he said.By Saturday morning, in the aftermath of last Friday’s ISIS attacks that ultimately left 129 dead, Burden observed of Paris “It was almost ghostly quiet.” Disconcertingly so, he said. Paris is always a vibrant city, Burden explained, especially on Saturdays. In the Burdens’ experience during their many trips to Paris, Parisians and tourists on the weekends flock to the cafes and museums. Many of those spots were either closed or if open, vacant, Burden, noted. “Saturday night,” he recalled, “the entire town was dark,” and the streets were empty.“The City of Lights was in darkness.”Cathedrals were closed to the public following the terrorist attacks.Speaking with French citizens, there was a numbness, a shock among the city’s residents, he said. But there was also an anger and the beginnings of a resilience. “There was a sense of enough is enough,” Burden said. In addition, there was a sorrow with many apologizing to the American tourists. “They were saying ‘It’s too bad this had to happen while you were here,’” he said.The Burdens had spent much of the week in Provence, traveling by rail from Avignon on Thursday to Paris.This was the couple’s seventh trip to Paris, a city they have come to know and love. “The whole spirit of living, the grandeur,” of Paris, is what, in part, Burden said he really appreciated.“They have a greater sense of history than anywhere else. And the food is to die for,” he offered as other appealing qualities. “I probably know the museums of Paris” – where you don’t have one or two Monets, but dozens – “better than in New York,” Burden acknowledged.Burden, who is now retired, was working in New York City on Sept. 11, 2001, during the World Trade Center terrorist attack, and there are similarities as well as differences between the experiences, he offered. While in New York that day 14 years ago, it was one location; here there were a number of sites, and that, along with the terrorist killings earlier this year, likely contributing to the confusion people were experiencing last weekend. “I think a lot of French people thought this wouldn’t happen again,” he suspected. But given that it had, “They were trying to figure out the connections,” among the targets.Leaving Paris security was incredibly tight, with “checkers and checkers checking checkers and checkers checking checkers and checkers,” as they made their way to their flight home after hours of precautions. When arriving at Newark Liberty International Airport, they again faced close security, with officials reviewing their passports and inspecting carry-on luggage before being able to disembark the plane – the first time Burden could remember that ever happening.They like to travel and Burden said they will again, of course. “I wouldn’t say we have reservations,” about future travel, he explained. “But I would say we would carefully consider our next destination.”But no reservations about again returning to Paris sometime. “It’s just a wonderful city,” he said.
Defender James Perch admitted he found it hard to watch from the bench during QPR’s back-to-back league wins but was pleased to be back in the starting line-up in the defeat at Preston on Saturday.Having been an unused substitute for the victories against Birmingham and Wigan earlier this month, Perch returned to the side at Deepdale with Grant Hall out injured.But while the 31-year-old was happy to get back involved, he was disappointed with the 2-1 reverse.“It’s always frustrating when you’re on the bench and not in the starting XI,” Perch told QPR’s website.“To play the 90 minutes was good, but to lose the game was hugely frustrating because I didn’t think we deserved to lose over the course of the 90 minutes.“Conceding on the stroke of half-time was a blow for us. It was a great strike from [Aiden] McGeady, but we should have shown him on to his left foot, because his right foot is a wand.Neil Warnock was QPR boss from 2010 to 2012, and briefly again in 2015“The second goal was frustrating, because there looked like a clear foul on Bids [Jake Bidwell], but it wasn’t to be for us.”Rangers entertain Cardiff City on Saturday, with former QPR boss Neil Warnock returning to Loftus Road for the first time since his four-game spell as caretaker-manager last season.It will also be the first time the Yorkshireman has faced QPR as the opposition boss since a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace in 2009.Perch said: “I played here under Neil during his last spell and really enjoyed it.“You know what you’re going to get with Neil Warnock’s teams. He’s old school and I’m from the old school era.“I’m sure he’ll get a warm reception from the Rangers fans.” Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!

4 January 2008Europe’s largest resort operator, Club Mediterranee (Club Med), has reportedly been scouting the scenic north coast of South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal province for what would be its first resort in southern Africa.Local newspaper The Mercury reported in November that Club Med bosses had made trips to potential sites that included the iSimangaliso (formerly St Lucia) Wetland Park World Heritage site and the eLan Group’s Blythedale resort location near Ballito north of Durban.Thierry Orsoni, spokesmen for the French-based luxury resort group, confirmed this, telling The Mercury that while a final decision had yet to be made, Club Med hoped to make an announcement in early 2008, with an eye to opening the new resort in time for the 2010 Fifa World Cup.The KwaZulu-Natal north coast was being considered “because of the region’s good weather, which permitted an all-year-round operation,” Orsoni told The Mercury. “The new King Shaka International Airport at the Dube TradePort, which would make this destination easily accessible from Europe, and South Africa’s hosting the Fifa World Cup in 2010, were also significant considerations.”There has reportedly been strong interest from local and international tourism investors since the iSimangaliso Wetland Park put a number of resort development sites out to tender in September.Terri Castis, commercial director of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park Authority, told The Mercury’s Suren Naidoo that securing good operators for the facilities in iSimangaliso would raise the park’s profile and increase the number of visitors to the region.“Importantly it will also result in significant economic ownership, jobs and SMME opportunities for local community partners,” Castis said. “The projects will also provide a direct link to Durban’s iNkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre and the new King Shaka International Airport.”SAinfo reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo material
The hair is of good quality and manageable. I bought this mannequin recently , to practice hairstyling , and it arrived in three days promptly. I found it very practical and worthwhile for the purpose , the hair is of good quality and manageable , although i struggled fixing the clamp on, the face was not too creepy 🙂 i would recommend buying this even though its a bit price. I purchased the hairdressing head to pratice more styling techniques. The delivery was really quick and i am really happy with it. I looked around at different ones and decided to buy this one, since it arriving i have washed the hair done blowdrys including a chelsea blowdry. Straightened the hair curled the hair with straighteners and they have all work really well. The hair has naturally fallen out but only strands and with a heat protection no damage is noticeable to me by blowdrying or styling the hair with straighteners. I would really recommend buying this is your looking for a hairdressing head because it is an amazing product . It’s reasonable for my ten year old daughter, although she did complain the hair felt layered and was hard to style. The hair seemed very wispy and thin at the ends and we had to cut it into a straighter edge. Bought several block/doll in the past two years and this is by far the best i have used. Ive had this doll as a gift and adored it and i finally found it again. They take really well to colors and lighteners, curl and straighten very well. This is amazing for any hair students to practice and learn new styles or even people who just want to buy for fun. Definitely will be buying more after christmas. Perfect for learning to style hair. I’ve created a number of great styles from up do’s to curling. . Great for anyone wanting to learn more about hair. Ideal for apprentice hairdressers. I’m doing an nvq level 2 in hairdressing and this product is perfect, just as pictured real hair that you can straighten, curl and do anything on. Clamp on this product is better than others that my friends have brought. Delivered on time and in good condition. Would definitely recommend and will be buying again when i need to cut it. It’s a wonderful product and far better and more authentic than versions. I bought this for my 8 year old daughter who has dreams of becoming a hairdresser. It’s a wonderful product and far better and more authentic than versions in toyshops. The clamp is a brilliant accessory. I bought this head for a hairdressing and styling course and it did the job. I did use straighteners at one point though to put the hair into an afro, it didn’t wash out but instead went frizzy, so avoid excessive heat. This is a brilliant item, i bought it for my sister who’s trying out different hair styles. Hair dryer with medium heat for rollers it was fine, just don’t use straightners. Came on time i would not say it is 100% hair i’ve found strings of plastic and wire in it but it will do for practicing hair styles with out straightners i tried hair dryer with medium heat for rollers it was fine, just don’t use straightners. I was worried when this item arrived s it was tightly wrapped in bubble wrap, this was a present and didn’t look very presentable but nevertheless this item came ineffective condition along with excellent service. The hair is great and i needed to practice hair up and it was perfect for it. Practice for a stylist to be. . This was bought for my 9 year old granddaughter who is forever experimenting with her own hair, and playing with one of those toy heads you can get, which was perfect at the beginning, but grew unfit for purpose as her experiments grew more ambitious. The micro trading head has proved to be a perfect choice, real hair, of perfect length, and hard hardwaring enough to withstand hairstyles that probably previously only existed in a 9 year old’s head. My only criticism being the amount of hair that came out at the beginning. I bought it for my daughter who is 7 years old and loves hair styling. She is very very happy with it and creates loads with it.

It made the goal a bit sweeter and the win.”He continued: “We knew how important it was today, a big test. It was a strong performance in the end.”Son is a passionate guy and brings his character out on the pitch. He’s one of the fastest players I’ve seen, I didn’t have a doubt he would finish.”When I went through for my goal I knew I had to time my run and keep my composure.”Son also stated: “It’s a big derby, last time we were here we didn’t have a great result and this is a special night. We go for the semi-final.”I was happy with the goal, thanks to Dele for the pass. I always make the run and it was great timing.

Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, has reiterated that he played no part in the recent appointment of the interim Executive Director of the Integrity Commission.“Section 26 of the Integrity Commission Act states that ‘subject to the provisions of this Act, the Commission shall regulate its own procedure’. The nature of the establishment of the Commission is that it will act independently,” Mr. Holness said.He was speaking during the sitting of the House of Representatives on Tuesday (November 13) at Gordon House.The Prime Minister was responding to concerns raised by the Leader of the Opposition, Dr. Peter Phillips, on the appointment of Colonel Daniel Pryce as interim Executive Director.Dr. Phillips noted in a statement that the “Prime Minister has provided no good reason for his recommendation to the Governor-General” on the temporary appointment of Colonel Pryce in the role.Mr. Holness pointed out that Section 28(1) of the Act clearly indicates that “The Executive Director is appointed by the Governor-General, acting on the recommendation of the Commission”.“There is no role for the Prime Minister in the process, contrary to assertions by the Parliamentary Opposition. I, therefore, would have played no part in the recent appointment of the ExecutiveDirector of the Integrity Commission. I was neither consulted nor advised of this recent appointment of an Executive Director at the Integrity Commission. I saw this in the media like everyone else,” he said.“It stands to reason that in accordance with its establishment as a Commission, it would have used its own judgement in conducting its affairs, including in appointing an Interim Executive Director. It would not be appropriate for any second-guessing or criticism of the exercise of their authority as an independent Commission,” he added.Prime Minister Holness reminded the Lower House that the post of Executive Director was proposed as an amendment to the Act in order to strengthen the management structure of the new body.He noted that it was posited then that the creation of this post was a better arrangement than having Directors of the three divisions of the body report directly to the Commissioners, as was stipulated in the previous Bill.He added that the independence of the Integrity Commission is safeguarded in legislation and “as a responsible Government, and indeed Parliament, we should do nothing to affect it being perceived as independent”. Story Highlights Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, has reiterated that he played no part in the recent appointment of the interim Executive Director of the Integrity Commission. “Section 26 of the Integrity Commission Act states that ‘subject to the provisions of this Act, the Commission shall regulate its own procedure’.

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Fort St. John’s RCMP detachment commander, Inspector Mike Kurvers, will be retiring at the end of this week.Fort St. John City Council took a moment to thank Kurvers on Monday for his 28 years of serving with the RCMP, the past four of which have been in the Energetic City. Kurvers was born in the Netherlands, and began his career with the RCMP in Moosomin, Saskatchewan in 1990.After several years, Kurvers’ career took him across the country, working general duty in Richmond and Mission, B.C. He spent seven and half years with the Emergency Response Team, the RCMP’s equivalent of the SWAT team, before moving to the West Shore RCMP in the Victoria area. Moving back to the Lower Mainland to stops at the detachments in Burnaby and Richmond once again, Insp. Kurvers got to experience first-hand the excitement of the 2010 Winter Olympics while serving as the detachment’s liaison for all of the City’s planning to host the Games.“The Olympic experience was fantastic,” said Kurvers. “We weren’t part of the integrated security unit, so Richmond had to development its own plans because we had the Olympic Oval and YVR. We created an operations plan for the Celebration site. I kind of lucked-out because Holland House was involved. I’m fluent in Dutch, so it was very handy.”After Richmond, Kurvers moved back to the Island District detachment in Victoria with the Federal Serious and Organized Crime Unit before moving to become the detachment commander in Fort St. John in 2014.Kurvers said that the experience of commanding the detachment has been incredibly rewarding.“This place has been fantastic. The city has been great, Mayor has been great, Council’s been great, and members are good. They come and do their jobs.”Kurvers said that while he isn’t involved in the search for another Inspector that will take over as detachment commander, he says that Staff Sergeant Perret will serve as interim detachment commander for the time being.
