How Disco* women set pace for fashion trends

*That's Discerning, Increasing years, Stylish and Comfortably Off

She is 45, a single mother and has a style habit that demands a healthy bank balance. In many ways Yasmin Yusuf, one of the most powerful people in British fashion, personifies the woman the youth-obsessed style industry must learn to love.

In her first interview since leaving struggling M&S, she identifies a breed of women which the high street ignores very much at its peril. By next year, she says, half the women in this country will be aged 40-plus. It is these women, and those coming up just behind them, whose influence will be unprecedented, because it is they who will make the buying decisions for themselves and for their households.

Porn tape on Greek school bus

ATHENS (Reuters) - A bus driver shuttling pupils to school in northern Greece shocked their parents when he put on a porn tape, say officials.

The incident on Tuesday in the town of Kilkis prompted dozens of complaints by parents who have asked the bus company to sack him.

"The driver said 'kids we've got porn, do you want to watch it'," one of the pupils told reporters on Thursday. "Everyone started shouting yes, yes and he just put in a tape and we watched it on the small TV screens on the bus."

Mommy hottest

Irene Slatest, 41, has been wearing basically the same uniform since her 20s: "I'm all about the low-cut (tops), the 3-inch heels, the tight clothes."

But as she fixed breakfast one morning at home in suburban Long Beach, N.Y., her daughter, Victoria, noticed something amiss. Hair, makeup and form-fitting outfit intact and impeccable, Slatest nonetheless stood at the stove in ... fuzzy slippers.

"Mom, you look like a housewife!" Slatest recalls her 7-year-old exclaiming.

"I was like, 'Oh, my God, we can't have this,' " Slatest says.
So she finished making eggs in heels.

Plague and flu change history of the world

The history of humanity is inseparable from the history of epidemics

Specialists distinguish outbursts of serious infectious diseases into pandemics and epidemics. Millions of people may die all over the world as a result of a pandemic, whereas an epidemic is of a smaller scale.

Several large-scale pandemics have been registered in the history of the human civilization. The majority of them were of zoonotic character, when people caught diseases from animals. Smallpox, diphtheria, flu and TB are the diseases that carry a global danger.

εσύ είσαι...

Άσε που τώρα ούτε που θυμάμαι τις παλιές μου αγάπες. Είμαι γαντζωμένη φανατικά στην καινούργια, μεγάλη και ελπίζω όχι απατηλή. Έχω ψιλοξεχάσει και τα μέρη που άλλοτε τα έβλεπα και χαιρόμουν και έλεγα την ιστορία τους σε όποιον κακόμοιρο είχα εκείνη τη στιγμή παραμάσχαλα. Τώρα στεναχωριέμαι που δεν έχω το μωρό μου να το κάνω βόλτες πάνω-κάτω στην παραλία και να το φιλάω με πάθος σε κάθε παγκάκι, έτσι ώστε να αποκτήσουν τα πάντα γύρω νέο νόημα για μένα.
