Hear Sam Smith Break Down His Bond Theme

« I tried to put myself in the shoes of Bond, » Smith explains. « My music is a diary and it’s a recap of my life, and I wanted to bring that kind of honesty. In the lyrics « How do I live, adidas obuv pánska how do I breathe? / When you’re not here I’m suffocating » I wanted a touch of vulnerability from Bond, where you see into his heart a little bit. »

Smith says the song came together in one whirlwind session. He and collaborator Jimmy Napes wrote it in under half an hour and quickly recorded a demo. When they listened back to that recording, they were so pleased with Smith’s vocal performance that they ended up using it on the final release albeit with some added muscle in the arrangement.

« When it goes into the chorus, it’s massive and then I wanted it to sound like all the air was being sucked out of the song really quickly as it goes into ‘How do I live, how do I breathe?’ And then, it slowly raises again in that last moment to the final explosion, leaving it to the orchestra to then take it away, » he says.

I’m not sure he even knows yet that I’m properly doing it. But I’m gonna bring him to the premiere. »

War and hunger

The following is a script of « War and Hunger » which aired on Nov. 30, 2014. Scott Pelley is the correspondent. Nicole Young and Katie Kerbstat, producers.

While we’re giving thanks for the feast this weekend let’s not leave out what may be one of the best ideas that America ever had. It’s called the World Food Programme the emergency first responder to hunger anywhere on the globe. The United Nations launched WFP in 1961 at the urging of the United States. government pays the biggest part of the bill as the World Food Programme feeds 80 million people a year. Its greatest challenges come when it confronts war and hunger. And that’s what’s happening today in Syria where you will find heroes of the World Food Programme saving the most vulnerable people in what looked to us like the edge of oblivion.

The map said, « no man’s land. » We plowed the border of Jordan and Syria where the Jordanian military told us we would find war refugees. But considering the wasteland it seemed more likely the map was right who could survive here?

But after several hours we found them, pouring over the land like a flash flood. With three hundred miles behind them, these Syrian families made their final steps through a war that nearly killed them and a desert that could have finished the job. Watch a moment and listen.

Scott Pelley: This berm marks the border between Syria and Jordan. The refugees that we ran into were coming across the top of the berm and turning themselves in to the safety of Jordanian border officers here. More than a million have crossed into Jordan so far during the three year civil war in Syria.

They had been farmers, shopkeepers, adidas superstar office workers. Now they shared one occupation: saving the children with matted hair and faces covered in ten days of misery. We noticed the little ones around Halima. Turns out she’s the mother of nine.

Scott Pelley: Why did you come?

« There’s bombing all around us, » she said, « I’m afraid for my children. But I don’t know what will become of us now. »

Scott Pelley: You don’t know what’s coming next but you know this must be better than where you came from?

She had taken five of her children. Her husband took four by another route. And they hope to find one another. Halima said they managed to save everyone in her family. But as for the fate of others in her town no translation was needed.

Andrew Harper: This is happening every day. Every day we are getting hundreds of people, sometimes up to a thousand people, fleeing the violence, fleeing the deprivation in Syria and coming across into Jordan.

Andrew Harper is in charge in Jordan for the United Nations high commissioner for refugees.

Scott Pelley: What kind of shape are they in when they come at the end of this journey?

Andrew Harper: It’s horrific. We’re seeing children coming across now without any shoes. Often they’ve only got one pair of clothes, some of them are just wearing their pajamas because, when their places were bombed, adidas obuv dámska they had nothing to grab to leave. camp. There was room for everyone on the trucks but no mother would take that chance. They pressed their children in first. Parents had sacrificed all they had to see this moment. And a long dead emotion began to stir. It felt like hope.

Scott Pelley: You know, this war’s been going on for three years. Why are these people still coming now?

Andrew Harper: Because it’s getting worse. I think now more than ever there is absolutely no hope for the future at the moment in Syria.

Part of what has stolen hope inside Syria is hunger. Starvation is a weapon in the war that began as an uprising against the dictator Bashar al Assad. These words read, « kneel or starve. » Signed Assad’s soldiers. All sides are laying siege to communities and cutting off the food. food convoy broke through. The people had eaten the dogs and the cats and were running low on leaves and grass. This girl eventually starved to death, five miles or so from a supermarket.

Ertharin Cousin: Are we willing to lose a generation of children to hunger? To lack of access to medicines? To lack of access to water while we wait until the fighting stops? No. We can’t.

Ertharin Cousin is executive director of the World Food Programme. She’s a former food industry executive from Chicago. donates more than a third of the four billion dollar annual budget.

Ertharin Cousin: The operation in Syria is one of the largest that we have ever operated in WFP. We have over 3,000 trucks supporting 45,000 metric tons of food delivered every month inside Syria.

Scott Pelley: All of that and your people are getting shot at.

Ertharin Cousin: All of that and people are getting shot at. It’s a war zone. It’s a conflict zone. The world doesn’t stop. The war doesn’t stop. The conflict doesn’t end because people need to eat.

The World Food Programme estimates that more than six million Syrians do not know where their next meal is coming from.

Matthew Hollingworth: These are areas where people have nothing. They really do have nothing.

Matthew Hollingworth heads the World Food Programme mission inside Syria. In February, he led an armored column into the city of Homs, which had been sealed off by the dictatorship for 600 days.

Matthew Hollingworth: People were skin and bones. I could lift a grown man because he’d got to about 40 kilos.

Keira Knightley topless for adidas maniaadidas outlet Interview Magazine

Keira Knightley is no Rihanna.

She’s not famed for her risqu publicity stunts or her barely there sartorial choices. If anything, she’s a private individual (as far as film stars can be), who shies away from discussing her personal life and is more often seen wearing baggy jeans and an oversized jumper than she is wearing anything that borders on brazen.

Yet the usually conservative actress, with strict rules over her own exposure on film, has chosen to pose completely topless for Interview Magazine, adidas botasky naked but for a pair of wide legged trousers and some three quarter length lacy gloves.

The spread has been shot by fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier for the magazine’s September issue, themed The Photographer’s issue, which is out on newsstands now.

Keira Knightley poses topless for a special September The Photographer’s issue of Interview Magazine, out now

And she is but one of six covers shot by a different photographer or team. The other five covers feature Nicole Kidman by Steven Klein, Naomi Campbell by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Amber Valletta by Craig McDean, Lea Seydoux by Peter Lindbergh and Daria Werbowy by Mikael Jansson.

She is also the same actress who publicly complained that her breasts had been digitally enhanced for a film poster, as well as in a Chanel fashion advert.

« For King Arthur, for a poster, they gave me these strange droopy tits, » she said in an interview with Allure magazine in 2012.

« A I don’t have tits anyway, and B they digitally made them, and I thought, Whoaaaaa! It’s my face on that poster.

« I thought ‘Well, if you’re going to make me fantasy breasts, at least make perky breasts’. »

Keira Knightley has complained that airbrushing in the above movie poster gave her « droopy tits »

She continued: « Normally the woman has to expose everything and the guy doesn’t. Sex scenes in films I’m quite rigorous about what gets exposed. No bottom half!

« I don’t mind exposing my tits because they’re so small people really aren’t that interested. It’s much easier as you get older. You can say, ‘No’, ‘Yes’, ‘No’. »

The feminists among us may wish to point out her decision to pose topless could well be a statement of solidarity to the FreeTheNipple campaign, adidas obuv bazar as championed by the aforementioned Barbadian pop star, model Cara Delevingne and Scout Willis.

Willis was banned from Instagram for posting a photograph of a sweatshirt she designed featuring two topless women.

She later staged a topless protest on the streets of New York to demonstrate against Instagram’s no nudity clauses under the belief that « no woman should be made to feel ashamed of her body ».

« I am not trying to argue for mandatory toplessness, or even bralessness, » she said.

« What I am arguing for is a woman’s right to choose how she represents her body and to make that choice based on personal desire and not a fear of how people will react to her or how society will judge her. No woman should be made to feel ashamed of her body. »Click the Adblock/Adblock Plus icon, which is to the right of your address bar.

Dark Stick Man Halloween Costume

When my then 11 year old daughter asked me if she could be a glowing stick man for Halloween last year, my response was « Huh? » I had no idea what she was talking about. She had seen it somewhere and wanted to duplicate it. Off we went to good ol’ Google to find some instructions on just how to pull this costume off. I was intimidated at first, but it turned out to be a very easy costume, and on Halloween night she got lots and lots of positive responses.

Many, many Google results came up. Some instructions for making this costume involved glow in the dark paint, hot glue guns, and even batteries. After reading up on various methods, I came up with one of my own that ended up being super easy and looked great. Read on below for directions on how to make this fun, inexpensive Halloween costume.

How to Make the Stick Man CostumeHave your child try on the black clothing. Holding up one of the bracelets or necklaces and using it as a guide, estimate how many pieces you’ll need for adidas obuv lacno both legs and arms plus torso and head.

Don’t forget to figure in enough glow necklaces for the back view. Putting glow necklaces on both the front and the back of the costume will not only add dimension and drama, it will add to your child’s visibility and enhance his/her safety as he/she trick or treats.

Keep the glow necklaces in their packaging as long as possible. The packaging is specially made to keep the glow sticks fresh so they’ll glow as long and as brightly as possible.

On Halloween, as trick or treating time gets near, remove the glow necklaces from their packaging and follow the package instructions to get them glowing.

Use the clear packing tape to attach the glow necklaces to the black pants and shirt. Rub the tape on so that it adheres well and will last the evening.

We made one of the necklaces into a circle and used a hair clip to attach it around my daughter’s face. Then she was ready to go! You could also attach a face sized circle to the opening of the hood on a sweatshirt.

Get creative! Mix different colored glow necklaces, add them to your shoes, adidas balerinky make glowing « hair, » hands, eyes, glasses, whatever you like!

Why This Is a Great CostumeYou probably already have much of what you need to make this costume. All we had to buy were the glow necklaces.

My daughter was totally covered up and stayed warm. You can alter this costume to the climate you live in. In a warmer climate you could use lightweight knits for the black clothing; in a colder climate, you could use jeans, sweats or adidas tenisky even a coat.

When Halloween is over, simply remove the packing tape and you can go back to wearing the black clothes. They will not be ruined, or designated forever for Halloween use only.

I also love that it’s a unisex costume that all ages respond well to.

Glow Stick Talent Show DanceYou don’t have to wait for Halloween to have fun with a glowing stick man costume. Go solo or get a group together for your school or church talent show or variety show. Even kids who have never had a dance lesson will be a big hit when they dance in these costumes. Just choose some fun music with a great beat, and do a few basic moves. The glowing costumes add so much to the act! As you can see and hear in the video below, these kids are doing the most basic of dance moves but the crowd goes absolutely wild! If you have dance experience or are in a group that has been rehearsing together a while, that will make your act even more impressive and exciting!

A glow stick routine is also a great idea for cheerleaders, dance teams, or drumlines at pep rallies! For drumlines, get your sticks in the act. Spray paint your drumsticks with glowing paint and the crowd will be blown away as they listen to the beat and watch all the perfectly synchronized, glowing drumsticks. Perhaps you and yours dressed as Thundercats?

My son does the standard funny or scary costume, but my daughter has always wanted to be something unusual. One year it was a raccoon, one year a kangaroo, one year a boa constrictor. It is always something odd I have to make, because no stores sell it. This year she dressed up as John Eggbert from Homestuck. She’s old enough to mostly make her own stuff now, so I only had a little do a little sewing.

How to Enhance and Enrich Your Marriage

Any marriage counselor adidas tenisky will tell you that one of the most common problems observed when couples come for help is poor communication skills. People get into trouble in their marriages because they have not developed their ability to listen and communicate.

Tutorial on Hanging Closet Sliding Doors

Home Guides Real Estate Values Taxes Determine Real Estate Value Tutorial on Hanging Closet Sliding Doors Tutorial on Hanging Closet Sliding Doors by Denise Brown Email Facebook Pinterest Reddit Google+

Sliding closet doors separate the closet from the bedroom without sacrificing any floor space. They allow you complete access to the interior of the closet as well, giving you more storage room. Sliding closet door installation is a simple do it yourself project. Take the sliding door measurement with you to the home improvement store as you pick up the doors and their hardware.

Measurement Sliding doors need to overlap in the center by 2 to 3 inches, so keep that in mind as you figure your door measurements. Because not all doorways are plumb, measure the width of the doorway at both the top and bottom of the closet doorjambs. Take at least two measurements of the height of the doorway as well. With the shorter of the two measurements, you can determine the width and height of your closet doors. To determine the width of the individual doors, divide the width of the doorway by 2. Add 2 to 3 inches to that amount, depending on the amount of overlap you want, to determine the width of the individual doors.

Doors You have a wide variety of options for the closet doors. Hollow core interior doors are readily available and easy to maneuver. You can select prefinished doors that you simply add hardware to, or you can finish the doors with stain and varnish or paint them before hanging. Another option is to cut plywood pieces to fit the opening and cover them with paint or fabric. If you wish, install full length mirrors on the sliding doors. Unless the height of the closet opening is different from the standard 6 feet, 8 inches of an interior door, you shouldn’t need to cut anything off the door. If you do, some lumberyards will make the cut for you. Otherwise, you can cut the door yourself with a circular saw.

Hardware The doors need a sliding door track that suspends them from the top of the doorjamb. The track should be slightly shorter than the width of the door. Each door needs a pair of track rollers. These install them either on the top of the door or along the back of its top edge. The doors need a pair of door adidas botasky pulls to use as door handles. If you select doors with precut door handle holes, choose the larger metal disks available for this purpose to fill the holes. Otherwise, you need to drill smaller holes in the doors to insert the door pulls you select. The final piece of hardware is a bottom track for the door. All of the hardware pieces come with mounting screws in their assembly kits.

Installation To install the doors, install the track on the top of the door’s frame. The task is easier if you predrill the holes and use a drill bit on the drill to secure the screws. Drill holes, if necessary, for the door pulls. Install the pulls. Secure two rollers on the tops of each of the doors. Once again, drill pilot holes to make the job easier. Hanging the doors is easier if you have a helper hold the doors while you guide the rollers onto the track. Hold the inside panel at a 15 degree angle as you engage the rollers onto the track. Depending on the rollers you selected, they should snap into place when engaged, or you might have to close a locking mechanism. Once the first door is in place, hang the second door the same way as the first. Both doors should operate smoothly on the upper track. If you need to adjust the doors to make them hang evenly, loosen the screws that hold the rollers to the door slightly. Move the door up or down to straighten it and then retighten the screws. Finish the project by installing the floor guide. Position it so the doors pass through it. Secure the guide to the floor with screws. If you have carpet with extra thick nap, separate the nap so you can see the carpet’s base to keep the carpet from twisting into the screw threads.
