Mohali boy debuts at Lakme Fashion Week

images19

It is well past sun down but the day has just begun for this 27-year-old designer. “I have waited so long for this moment,” admits Vipin Batra as he scurries about getting his tall, leggy models to try out his designs. Batra opened the Generation Next designer category on the first day of the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2010 in Mumbai last weekend. “I always dreamt of arriving with my own label,” says Batra. His phone hasn’t stopped ringing ever since March 5, when his alma mater Northern India Institute of Fashion Technology (NIIFT) in Mohali got to know about his debut.

Batra, who hails from Rajasthan, is from the 2004-2006 batch of Knitwear Design Technology. “All that I know of fashion, its techniques and philosophy is what I learnt at NIIFT, Mohali,” he says. His teachers haven’t forgotten him either. “Batra was very hard working and I am glad it all paid off well for him,” says NIIFT Mohali’s director Vijay Sharma.

Designer duo Hemant Lalwani and Nandita Rajpurani, incidentally, are two other successful designers who trained at the institute. About a year ago, he came out with his own label V for Vipin Batra. He took his new line to the Bangalore Fashion Week held in February this year. For LFW, Batra rolled out his Swirls of Life. “I like to experiment with different yarns by creating new textures. For Swirls of Life, I was inspired by the planets and the cosmos,” he says, whose line-up included snug-fitting gowns made of graphic-jacquard knitwear technique. With just Swarovskis for embellishment, Batra played up the line with lots of colour.

The response, so far, has been good. “I have got invitations for Hong Kong Fashion Week as well London Fashion Week. I am thrilled,” he sums up. Vipin Batra has been trying to make inroads into Lakme Fashion Week for over three years and finally made his debut this season.

Vipin says, “I was so excited to get this opportunity to show my work to a larger audience with Lakm Fashion Week – Summer/Resort 2010. I am not one to get afraid of competition, rather I take it as a challenge; it gives me even more strength to push my creativity to the next level. Swirls of Light is the main source of inspiration and one person who I would Love to dress in my signature style is my idol, John Gilliano.”

Understanding The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (njlad)

images5

Though there are federal laws in place to combat discrimination, the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination takes the protection of civil liberties takes the protection of civil rights a step farther. It shares several of the same provisions as those specified by the federal government, however it has fewer restrictions. For example, the federal law is applicable to a business with fifteen workers or more while the NJLAD extends to all workers, regardless of business size. In terms of employment law, it offers several provisions, including right to:

Readily-accessible facilities
Reasonable accommodations
Non-hostile work environments
Protection from retaliation
Fair and impartial treatment

No employer can restrict anyone’s right to apply for a job based on personal bias toward the applicant or their disability. The only circumstance under which it is acceptable to deny someone’s potential candidacy for a position is when a business cannot realistically accommodate a disability in a way that would enable the applicant to perform the necessary responsibilities of the job. Employers cannot prevent an employee from receiving training, promotions, or other work benefits. Doing so is a violation of the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination and a violation of a worker’s civil rights and employment rights. When these or other violations occur, workers are obligated to complain. Ignored complaints are regarded as separate offenses under the law, and therefore, carry their own additional consequences.
Religiously-affiliated schools do not fall under the NJLAD, nor do private clubs, seeing as they are, “private in nature”. Whether public or private, an institution in New Jersey may not place restrictions on a member or limit their civil rights by acting in a discriminatory manner and denying membership privileges based on any of the characteristics protected under the law.

No place of public accommodation is permitted to restrict access on the basis of legally-protected characteristics or disabilities. Provisions must be made for disabled individuals, unless a court of law has ruled that a specific location is too dangerous to accommodate a certain disability.

The Top 10 Model Train Shops In Delaware, Maryland, And New Jersey

images18

For the past year I’ve been compiling a list of model train stores for my model railroading website. These shops all look like a lot of fun to visit, but what are the most popular? Here is a list for the states of Delaware, Maryland, and New Jersey.

The most popular model railroading shops (based on online chatter) in Delaware, Maryland, and New Jersey are:

10. Ridgefield Hobby in Ridgefield, New Jersey

9. Maplewood Hobby in Maplewood, New Jersey

8. M. B. Klein Model Train Stuff in Cockeysville, Maryland

7. Tony’s Train Town in Cedar Grove, New Jersey

6. MTH Electric Trains in Columbia, Maryland

5. Hobbymasters in Red Bank, New Jersey

4. The Model Railroad Shop in Piscataway, New Jersey

3. The Train Station in Mountain Lakes, New Jersey

2. Toy Train Emporium in Cherry Hill, New Jersey

…and the most popular shop for model trains in Delaware, Maryland, and New Jersey is…

1. The Hobby Shop in Aberdeen, New Jersey

Hobby shops not quite making my top 10 were Just Trains in Newark, Delaware; Millsboro Hobbies in Millsboro, Delaware; Seaside Hobbies in Ocean View, Delaware; Engine House Hobbies in Gaithersburg, Maryland; G Scale Train Station in Waldorf, Maryland; Hobby Works in Rockville, Laurel, and Bel Air, Maryland; The Train Room in Hagerstown, Maryland; Atlantic Rails in Folsom, New Jersey; Genes Train Stop in Kearny, New Jersey; Island Trains in Middletown, New Jersey; Pastime Hobbies and Miniatures in Bayonne, New Jersey; Z and Z Hobbies in Mercerville, New Jersey; Zeppelin Hobbies and Raceway in Wayne, New Jersey.

So, there are lots of great model railroading shops from all over Delaware, Maryland, and New Jersey but clearly New Jersey dominated the list with eigth in the top ten. Maryland had two inthe ten, and Just Trains in Delaware just missed out. Note that this list was for the train stores more than their online web stores. If this list were for online stores www.modeltrainstuff.com, the website of M. B. Klein Model Train Stuff, would probably have won.

When in Delaware, Maryland, or New Jersey be sure to visit some of the excellent railroading museums including Harrington Museum and Railroad Museum in Harrington, Delaware; Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Museum in Baltimore, Maryland; Brunswick Railroad Museum in Brunswick, Maryland; Hagerstown Roundhouse Museum in Hagerstown, Maryland; Huntington Railroad Museum in Bowie, Maryland; New Jersey Museum of Transportation in Wall, New Jersey; Whippany Railway Museum in Whippany, New Jersey; and South Jersey Railroad Museum in Tuckahoe, New Jersey.

I compiled this list by searching for the hobby shops listed on a number of search engines and ranking them by the number of web pages, discussion forums, photos, videos, etc that are available online. I further screened this list to include only pages that mentioned model railroading.

The Scary Truth About Obesity and Lifestyle Choices

fashion11

It is unfortunate that many of today’s disease result from poor lifestyle choices. It is a known fact that diabetes mellitus 2, heart diseases, certain types of cancer, asthma, osteoarthritis and sleep apnea are caused by obesity. It has been labeled by several studies as “one of the leading preventable causes of death worldwide.”

The sad case is that obesity is preventable. If it’s not genetically caused, it is the result of poor diet and lack of exercise. Both are clearly lifestyle choices. Indeed, just how much hype is there about healthy eating and getting active, but still studies indicate disturbing statistics: between 110,000-350,000 deaths in the United States are attributed to obesity every year, and a staggering 1 million deaths in Europe are blamed on it. To be blunt, those whose excess weight are not hereditary or caused by endocrine disorders or mental illnesses, are choosing slow and painful deaths. This perception is rather scary because then you would look at obesity mortality rates as conscious choices to end one’s life.

OTHER CAUSES OF OBESITY: Medications, endocrine disorders and psychiatric illness.

When is a person is considered obese? The Body Mass Index (BMI) is the measurement used to determine if a person is overweight. This uses the following formula: BMI = mass (kg) / height (m)2 or mass (lb) / height (in) )2 x 703. According to the World Health Organization, those with a BMI between 25- 29.9 are overweight; 30-34.9 BMI, class I obesity; 35-39.9 BMI, class II obesity and 40 BMI, class III obesity. Meanwhile, those with a BMI of 18.5 and less are considered underweight. Those with BMI between 18.5-24.9 are considered to have normal weight.

Being overweight does not happen overnight. A person does not go to bed weighing 110 lbs and wakes up weighing 200 lbs the following day. It is a systematic process, deliberately or not, of choosing all the wrong foods and leading a sedentary lifestyle. However, that is the keyword: choice. People need to make smart choices about what and how they eat. We need to find time in our busy schedules to get some cardio activity (one that’s enjoyable for us) going. We need to make the decision to live well and healthy lifestyles. Apparently this decision-making process starts in the mind, which means once we have made our choices we must be strong-willed to carry it through.

This does not mean that you have to stop eating cakes and candies altogether, or you eliminate rice and potatoes from your diet. It does not mean training hard every day for the 10K marathon. By deciding on a healthy lifestyle, we also strive for balance. Life would be boring if there is no balance. In the same breath that the world would be in chaos if there is no balance of power.

There Are Plenty Of Benefits To Living In New Jersey

fashion10

When your entire state lives in the shadow of the Big Apple, there is definitely a tendency to be overlooked. But even more than feeling like an obscure cousin to the largest city on the East Coast, New Jersey and the people who live there have come to be seen by residents of New York City as second class citizens.

The reason for this, of course, stems from the fact that a lot of people commute from New Jersey to work in the big city. While some apartments in the Big Apple are going for seven figure sums, the cost of living remains reasonable and thus makes the commute into the city for higher wages worth the effort.

But actually, New Jersey residents have no reason to be jealous of their New York counterparts. New Jersey is a state that has a lot to offer both residents and visitors.

Listed below are a few of the reasons why New Jersey is a wonderful place to call home and a respectable state on its own despite its big neighbor known as the Big Apple.

Atlantic City might be the first thing you think of when someone mentions New Jersey. That is wonderful. Casinos currently dominate Atlantic City, but this wasn’t always true. Casinos were not approved in Atlantic City until as late as 1976. Casinos were approved as means to revamp the economy because the manufacturing base pretty much no longer existed in the area.

Now, almost three decades later, Atlantic City is home to a dozen casinos. The Trump Taj Mahal Casino probably comes to mind when thinking of a place that you know of. People from New York city make the drive every day to play in the world famous casinos of Atlantic City which is known as “America’s Favorite Playground.”

You can also walk along the boardwalk in Atlantic City. Tourists go to this boardwalk every year. It has amusement attractions, casinos, and great restaurants.

The beach borders the boardwalk for six miles and is a fun spot for the hot summer days. Many New Yorkers spend time at this beach to relax. Atlantic City also has the Miss America Pageant that is a huge evnt in the state of New Jersey and is watched by citizens of every state.

While New York City may be able to boast of Columbia University, New Jersey is no slouch where higher education is concerned. Home to Princeton University and many other institutions of higher learning, New Jersey attracts some of the greatest minds in the world.

While New Jersey may be looked at as the shadow of the great city of Manhattan, it is still a force in its own right. Many New Jersey citizens commute to New York City daily for work. While this commute has become commmon place, it is important to think of New Jersey as a worthy place to live, work, and play.

How To Write A Book Jacket Cover

fashion3

Last week we covered the ‘Why’ of writing book jacket copy, so now let’s get down to business and get into the ‘How’.

What is copy? Book jacket copy isn’t about summarizing your project or providing the reader with a clear synopsis or plot spoiler; it’s about sales. Book copy should be short, succinct, and send a message. It should grab the reader and tell them why they should pick your book rather than the thousands of other titles packed into the shelves.

How do I write it? First, and foremost, you should draft a synopsis of your project. This will help you to determine which plot points you want to highlight and which you don’t want to spoil for the reader. Once you’ve got your synopsis down, there are three components to creating effective book jacket copy:

Attention: Start off your copy with a powerful hook that demands attention. Is there a central question or revelation in your plot? You might start off with the first sentence or two from your plot summary.

Interest: Intrigue interest and create curiosity. Again, book jacket copy is about sales, and copywriters generally have knowledge of certain key words that engage readers and get them excited about a book. These terms relate to each genre and audience; the same words that entice a thirteen-year-old girl to purchase a young-adult book will be far different from the key words in place on the back of a literary novel aimed at an adult audience. Your best bet? Research your market.

Detail: Provide details about your story, but again, don’t turn your book copy into a spoiler! The best way to determine how much detail to include is to read other book jackets. Start with those in a genre similar to your book; copy on a romance novel, for instance, is going to be vastly different from a science fiction or horror story. This will also help you to get a feel for your audience and what they want to read.

You might even want to peruse the New York Times Bestseller List – pick up a couple of books on there and check out their jacket copy. The jacket copy may not be the only thing selling those books, but it can’t hurt to check out the success stories.

A final caveat: The amount of copy that appears on your book jacket is completely based on the final book design.

Book jacket copy is meant to be slightly over-the-top and sales pitch-y, so be creative and have fun with it, and take the opportunity to really make your book shine and out-sell all the rest.

Keep in mind that while you may try to design and format your book jacket cover on your own, there are professional editors who will do it for you. An experienced editor will create a professionally written book jacket cover that will capture your audience’s attention. This is short, succinct copy that sends a strong message about your writing.

The Number One Dress Guide

images3

Buying a dress can be a fun, but not always easy task, and it is certainly wise to consult a dress guide before spending your hard-earned cash on your new garment! One of the main considerations that you need to make when buying a dress is finding one that flatters your shape

Dress Guide: Flatter Your Shape!

No matter how much women may sometimes dislike it, we are all made differently – some women have curves, some do not, some women are tall and thin whilst others are lacking in the height department. Whatever your shape, you need to find a dress that is perfect for your body type and gives you a great confidence boost!

If you’re tall and thin, with no visible curves then you may well find that an A-line dress can really accentuate your upper body and flow from under your bust. On the other hand, if you have an apple shaped body where your mid-section is thick and your belly seems to stick out, then stay away from form fitting dresses, choosing instead an Empire cut style dress which can take the attention away from your waistline.

Women with athletic-shaped bodies, with a large bone structure, wide shoulders and few curves, would be advised to choose a dress with a low neckline and a fill skirt which can help give you a more feminine shape. There are so many dresses out there that deciding which style is most flattering to you can save you a lot of time and trying on!

Dress Guide: Boost your Confidence!

Whatever body shape you have and whichever type of dress you choose to go for, it is vital that you feel at your most confident whilst sporting your new item of clothing.

If you have a favourite designer then you may want to choose one of their creations to make you feel like a million a dollars when sporting your new dress. If you love the wrap dress, for example, why not splash out on a Diane von Furstenberg number? Furstenberg is the pioneer of the wrap dress and a leading dress designer – for quality and style you can’t go wrong! Hopefully you have found this dress guide useful and are now ready to buy your new killer dress!

Adidas Track Jacket

fashion7

There are more than a handful of options when it comes to this kind of product and you can find an Adidas track jacket right from the comfort of your personal computer.

Awhile ago, I was on the hunt for the perfect fleece hooded jacket for my workout. The days begin chilly around here and I initially figured that a sweat suit jacket would be the best bet. After purchasing a cheap fleece number I decided that I had better look to the pros for a better option. I stumbled on the Adidas track jacket.

The main problem I had with the sweat shirt material was that I got very hot very quickly. Fleece is designed to keep body heat close to the skin. While working up a good sweat is ideal, I really don’t want to do it all within the first five minutes of my warm up. The fleece wound up working against me in the long run.

The first time I tried on the Adidas track jacket, I knew I had a winner. The material is light and airy and the product works to keep me warm enough to brave the chilly morning air but it is light enough to help me maintain a natural body temperature during my workout.

Comfort isn’t the only reason that I opted to replace my old fleece number for an Adidas track jacket. Looks are important, too. I wanted something that was colorful and fun to lift my mood before my workout. I also wanted an item that could be worn to the store or to a casual lunch with a friend.

The Adidas track jacket is lovely. I chose a buttery yellow color that works well with my complexion. The bright yellow color is the perfect pick-me-up in the morning. I also chose the yellow Adidas track jacket because it is easily spotted by others even during the darkest dawns.

I feel that I have gotten two jackets in one. I can wear the Adidas track jacket during any outdoor workout activity, during a stroll or even out to the store. Cleaning the item is a breeze and no matter what, I feel comfortable and confident. This is one of my all time favorite pieces of workout clothing that I have ever owned.
