Scientists claim to have shed light on how dinosaurs divided up their meals allowing them to co-exist in harsh bayan escort prehistoric ecosystems.Large, long-necked plant-eating dinosaurs, such as Diplodocus, dominated the land between 210 million and 65 million years ago and escort would have need huge amounts of food.These sauropods were the largest land animals of all time, with the biggest weighing escort bayan 80 tonnes – more than 11 elephants.
By analysing dinosaur skulls, vip eskort scientists claim to have shed light on how dinosaurs divided up their meals allowing them to co-exist in harsh prehistoric ecosystems. Pictured is a completed skull model of the Late Jurassic North American sauropod dinosaur CamarasaurusResearchers from the University of Bristol and the Natural History Museum in London believe that multiple sauropod species survived in the same habitats because of their different diets.The Late Jurassic Morrison Formation – a distinctive sequence of sedimentary rock in the western United States – contained more than 10 species of sauropod.

The University of Bristol and the Natural History Museum in London analysed sauropod skulls found in the Morrison Formation (shown), which extends throughout Western United States
Experts studied a digital reconstruction of the skulls, jaws and neck muscles of the sauropods Camarasaurus (left) and Diplodocus (right) to investigate how they fed.  The top skulls in this image have a reconstructed jaw (in multiple colours).  In the bottom image, hotter colours refer to areas of higher stress when bitingDavid Button, a PhD student at Bristols School of Earth Sciences, said: Our results show that although neither could chew, the skulls of both dinosaurs were sophisticated cropping tools.Camarasaurus had a robust skull and strong bite, which would have allowed it to feed on tough leaves and branches.Meanwhile, the weaker bite and more delicate skull of Diplodocus would have restricted it to softer foods like ferns.  NEW SPECIES OF MEAT-EATING DINOSAUR UNCOVERED
Its fossilised right shinbone (right) and left hipbone (bottom) were found together and analysis showed the animal was different to other species foundA primitive meat-eating dinosaur that roamed the Earth about 200 million years ago has been dug up in South America.The new species, about the size of a lion and found high up in the Venezuelan Andes, was an ancestor of Tyrannosaurus Rex, Velociraptor and Spinosaurus.More than 6ft (1.8 metres) long, it is one of the few dinosaurs ever recovered from northern South America, and the first carnivorous member of the group discovered in Venezuela.At the time all the planet’s landmass was wrapped up in one supercontinent Pangaea surrounded by a giant ocean and was just beginning to break up into the modern continents we now see today.Named Tachiraptor admirabilis after Tachira state where it was unearthed, it was a predator theropod but would probably have snacked on the abundant ferns as well.Tachiraptor was around at the beginning of the period known geologically as the Jurassic, and helps explain the spread of carvivorous dinosaurs following the Triassic mass extinction shortly before.Half the world’s animals were mysteriously wiped out by either climate change, volcanic eruptions or an asteroid impact.Its fossilised right shinbone and left hipbone were found together and analysis showed the animal was different to other species found, the study published in the journal Royal Society Open Science said. However, Diplodocus could also have used its strong neck muscles to help it detach plant material through movements of the head. This indicates differences in diet between the two dinosaurs, which would have allowed them to co-exist.The researchers also used a series of biomechanical measurements from other sauropod species to calculate the difference in movement in their skulls and jaws. They found that other Morrison Formation sauropods were also highly varied in feeding adaptations, which suggests they had different diets.
Large, long-necked plant-eating dinosaurs, such as Diplodocus (artists impression pictured), dominated the land between 210 million and 65 million years ago and would have need huge amounts of foodProfessor Emily Rayfield of the University of Bristol, co-author of the report, said: In modern animal communities differences in diet such as this – termed dietary niche partitioning – allow multiple similar species to co-exist by reducing competition for food.Although dietary niche partitioning has been suspected between Morrison Formation sauropods based on their structural features and patterns of tooth-wear, this is the first study to provide strong, numerical, biomechanical evidence for its presence in this fossil community.Co-author Professor Paul Barrett of the Natural History Museum added: Our study provides insight not only into the ecology of dinosaurs but more generally into the mechanisms supporting species-richness in other animal communities, both from the fossil record and in the present day.The research, funded by the Natural Environment Research Council, was published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B.

– which findings porn

The sexes have very different reactions when they look at art, researchers have found.They say that in fact, women appreciate porn art far more.Men on the other hand, focus more on the artists background and authenticity. escort bayan
Men seem to focus more on the artists background and authenticity, while women pay more attention escort to the art itself, the Michigan researchers say. child porno HOW THEY DID IT Researchers made 518 people look at two unfamiliar paintings with made-up biographies of the artist.Some participants read a bio that characterized the artist as authentic – in other words, a lifelong painter who creates unique work. Others read a bio that characterized the artist as an ordinary painter who took up the craft only recently.When the artist was characterized as authentic, participants had a much more favorable impression of both the artist and the artwork. Participants indicated they were more willing to buy that artists painting and to pay a higher price for it.Men were much more likely to use the artists brand as a deciding factor when evaluating art.  The Michigan State University study, which appears in the journal Psychology & Marketing, is the first to investigate how important an artists brand is to average consumers when they appraise art.The research could have major implications for the $64 billion art market and other product industries such as food and fashion.All consumers in the study, but especially men, evaluated art with a strong emphasis on how motivated and passionate the artist was, said Stephanie Mangus, who led the research.So if youre an artist or if youre managing an artist, developing that human brand – getting the message across that youre authentic – becomes essential.Mangus and her fellow researchers had 518 people look at two unfamiliar paintings with made-up biographies of the artist. Some participants read a bio that characterized the artist as authentic – in other words, a lifelong painter who creates unique work. Others read a bio that characterized the artist as an ordinary painter who took up the craft only recently.When the artist was characterized as authentic, participants had a much more favorable impression of both the artist and the artwork. Participants indicated they were more willing to buy that artists painting and to pay a higher price for it.

Men were much more likely to use the artists brand as a deciding factor when evaluating art.Mangus said this jibes with past research that indicates men tend to use factors that are known to them (in this case, the artists brand) when making a decision.Women also took the artists authenticity into account, but a bigger factor for them was the artwork itself. Women are more willing to go through a complicated process of actually evaluating the artwork, Mangus said, whereas men may say, This guys a great artist, so Ill buy his art.While the art market has grown steadily for the past 10 years – outperforming the equities market during that time – theres a dearth of research on how consumers are actually determining the worth of artwork, Mangus said.
en tend to use factors that are known to them (in this case, the artists brand) when making a decisionKnowing that the artists brand plays a major role in consumers evaluation may help art dealers better set their prices. The findings can also help consumers make decisions on which art they buy.For the average person trying to purchase art, knowing something about the artist – and knowing that the artist is authentic – can reduce the risk of buying a worthless piece, Mangus said.The findings likely extend to other product industries in which a creator is highly involved and visible. These include the clothing, shoe, jewelry and restaurant and food industries. While designers and chefs oftentimes operate in the background, this research suggests that more emphatically communicating their passion and commitment to their craft could significantly benefit that brands image and sales, the study says.

porno thursday former keane

Roy Keane did not waste his words. His book The Second Half was an opportunity to respond to the lies, porno with the clear implication being that some of them had been told by Sir Alex Ferguson in the book he porno published last year.If we thought Keane had already had his say on Ferguson in the book, we were very much mistaken. In the 15-minute press conference he gave at the Aviva Stadium here in Dublin on Thursday afternoon came a far more brutal assessment of his former manager at Manchester United.Nonsense and lies were words he used repeatedly and his greatest complaint was the way, in his view, Ferguson criticised not just him but the United team-mates who brought the club so much success. Players, Keane said, who taught him more than any manager he had worked with.VIDEO Scroll down to watch Roy Keanes best clips from his book launch 
Roy Keane was at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Thursday to promote his autobiography The Second Half
The former Manchester United and Republic of Ireland midfielder is mobbed by the worlds media on Thursday 
The Second Half is Keanes latest autobiography. He released his first book back in 2002
Keane, sporting his now customary beard, presents his new book to the worlds press at the Aviva Stadium  FERGUSON-KEANE DREAM TEAM Despite spectacular falling out in 2005, Sir Alex Ferguson and Roy Keane forged one of the most successful manger-captain relationships in football. Between 1993 and 2005, the pair won: 7 Premier Leagues, 4 FA Cups and 1 Champions League  He was asked if he would ever forgive Ferguson. Good question, he said. Not sure. Footballs a small world and eventually you think you might cross paths again.The problem I had, when youre writing and reflecting on something … we had our disagreement … but its afterwards when people start coming out with all sorts of nonsense. We had a great team that entertained a lot of people. So to criticise people like that, not just me, people who brought him a lot of success, I thought it was wrong.And then the killer line from Keane. He made his millions, got his statue, got a stand named after him, he said. But to criticise people who brought him success was just wrong. He said he wanted to defend himself but also the players he had so much admiration for.The people who helped me most were my team-mates, he said. Players like Stuart Pearce, Steve Bruce, Gary Pallister. I learnt the most from them, these boys who you are actually in battle with. I think managers get too much credit and too much criticism when things do go wrong.Previous

Mild dependence the escort

Plus-size clothing retailer N Brown has issued a profit alert blaming unseasonably mild autumn temperatures for recent weak sales.Shares fell escort 13 per cent as the owner of Simply Be, JD Williams and Jacamo stressed very difficult market conditions across the escort bayan clothing sector in recent weeks, echoing the message from Next which recently warned it would cut profit forecasts if Autumn bayan escort weather continued to be so warm.The setback comes as N Brown tries to reposition the group, including shifting its business eskort model towards online sales from traditional mail orders, hiring TV presenter Lorraine Kelly and model and actress Kelly Brook as brand ambassadors, and opening its first London store.
Image overhaul: N brown has hired TV presenter Lorraine Kelly and model and actress Kelly Brook as brand ambassadorsN Brown stock dropped 44.9p to 303.30p on the FTSE 250 index as it forecast pre-tax profits would fall in a range of £88-92million in the financial year ending next March – undershooting City estimates for around £103.4million.Like-for-like sales were down 0.5 per cent and pre-tax profit fell 3.2 per cent to £42.7million in the 26 weeks to August 30, the company reported.

Half-year revenues were down 0.6 per cent at £407.3 million, reflecting lower sales at JD Williams ahead of its recent relaunch.The company added that online sales grew to 58 per cent of its business in the first half, with its stores accounting for 3 per cent of revenues.N Brown said: In common with a wider clothing sector which has been adversely affected by unseasonably mild autumn temperatures in September and so far in October, our own performance has also been impacted.
Chief executive Angela Spindler said the board believed it was prudent to re-set expectations for the groups performance because it was a transitional year for the company.Changes have included the slashing of marketing investment in its catalogues by almost a quarter during the half-year period, which contributed to a drop in sales, particularly in the most recent quarter.Income shares watch: N Brown froze its half-year dividend at 5.67p today. The shares yield 4 per cent.View from the CityN Brown must win some sort of prize today for complaining about the mild weather so far in October, but, although it is wet and windy, it is still relatively warm, said independent retail analyst Nick Bubb.In its pre-close update home shopping group N Brown had said that although interim profits would be down a bit, because of the repositioning of the business, full-year profits would be fine.But it now says that second half profits will be down as well, because….the unseasonably mild autumn temperatures in September and so far in October has hit fashion sales!However unconvincing an excuse that is, the City is bound to be get nervous again about other fashion retailers today, with more sale activity taking place on the High Street.Bubb noted that Debenhams seemed to have reverted to type after a weak September, and after a brief attempt at reducing its dependence on discounting has launched another Mid-Season Half Price Sale this week.Kate Calvert, analyst at Investec, said: (N Browns) first half results were slightly better than lowered expectations, but the surprise is management guiding to an 11-15 per cent downgrade on full-year profit before tax due to warm weather after just three weeks ago saying it was comfortable with the then market consensus.While we believe management’s strategy is right for the businesses long term, arguably management has been too ambitious in its change programme, [and] anticipated customer response and execution has been poor.
Stock watch: N Brown shares have fallen sharply from peaks seen at the start of the yearShe went on: According to management, £8million of the downgrade is due to 1) warm weather with sales 18 per cent behind expectations in September, which they are unlikely to get back; 2) lost postage and packing revenues; 3) no return on its new marketing campaign.A further £3-5million of profit impact is likely for the rest of the half as N Brown will not get financial income on lost sales and higher marketing/markdown is likely to clear the surplus stock it now has.It is hard to believe that a 13 per cent downgrade is just down to the weather. While we believe management is doing the right things to reposition the business for the future, the restructuring strategy has repeatedly not delivered to expectations.While we could be blamed for being too early in calling the turn, we believe management has to take responsibility for either poor communication or execution, and perhaps trying to undertake too much at once.Brokers at Shore Capital said: Such an outcome is clearly disappointing, doubly so, given the crossover with the JD Williams re-launch.Whilst so, for us it is not a surprise, especially following Nexts update, albeit the magnitude of our profit cut is greater than we expected.

Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates after scoring one of Real Madrids eight goals against Deportivo la Coruna at the Municipal de Riazor stadium.

Ronaldo followed up his midweek goal in the Champions League thrashing of Basel by heading the opener in the La Liga match.

James Rodriguez, who won the golden boot at the 2014 World Cup before joining Real from Monaco, celebrates in Ronaldo style after his superb curling effort made it 2-0.

World player of the year Ronaldo celebrates with Karim Benzema after a goalkeeping error by German Lux gifted him a second goal for 3-0.

Gareth Bale, who surpassed Ronaldo last year as the worlds most expensive signing, made it 4-1 with the first of his two goals.

Ronaldo completed his hat-trick for 6-1, giving him five goals in three La Liga games this season.

Home side Deportivo pulled another goal back before Javier Hernandez, who came on for Bale, scored two late goals to open his account for the 10-time European champion since joining on loan from Manchester United.

June 2009: Didier Drogba received a six-match ban (with two matches suspended) following Chelseas loss to Barcelona in the semifinal second leg of the Champions League at Stamford Bridge in June 2009. The Ivorian was incensed that referee Tom Henning Ovrebo had rejected Chelsea pleas for several penalties. Frustration boiled over as Drogba uttered the words its a f***ing disgrace into a passing TV camera lens.

July 2006: Zinedine Zidanes headbutt on Marco Materazzi in the 2006 World Cup final between France and Italy was immortalized in this bronze statue titled Coup de Tete made by French Algerian-born artist Adel Abdessemed. Even though Zidane retired after the match he was handed a three-match ban and fined 7,500 Swiss francs ($7,990).

Footballs bad boys

The 61-year-old German added claims by the former Fulham captain Hangeland that he ignored conventional medical advice in favor of the cheese cure were incorrect.
I would never tell a doctor how he should manage the injury to a player, he continued. It seems this story has been blown completely out of context.
Magath, who guided Bayern Munich and unfancied Wolfsburg to the German Bundesliga title, has a reputation for his unconventional management style.
Big cheese
But he is not the first big cheese in sport to use the savory dairy staple to help injuries.
American ski star Lindsey Vonn revealed she had been wrapping her injured shin in an Austrian cheese to reduce inflammation in the buildup to the 2010 Vancouver Games.

Anybody yangtze eskort river rivers

Editors note: John D. Sutter is a columnist for CNN Opinion and creator of CNNs Change the List project. Follow eskort him on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. E-mail him at ctl@cnn.com. The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of the author.
(CNN) — Leave it to an old naturalist to make rivers sound sexy.
The rivers flow not past, but through us, John Muir wrote in the 1870s, thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing.
If only we still felt that way in 2014.
Today, rivers arent thrilling much of anybody. Theyre invisible. We dont travel by river, rarely visit their banks. We dont know their stories.
John D. Sutter
Thats most of us, at least. Ive discovered as part of my reporting on rivers for CNNs Change the List project, that there remains a vital sect of pleasantly anachronistic River People. Theyre folks who dont mind smelling like mildew; who affix clips and carabineers to everything in sight; and who still value adventure over efficiency.
Related: My trip down Apocalypse River
I learned many of you are among them. When I put out a request for readers to send in photos and stories about their favorite rivers, I wondered if anyone would respond — if anyone still took photos of rivers, still cared about them. But, to my delight, 89 people have submitted stories on CNN iReport — and dozens more have uploaded images to Instagram.
Youre people like Darren Palm, who sent in black-and-white photos of his grandfather catching salmon on Californias Kings River; like Julee Khoo, who wrote that her trip on the Yangtze River will forever link me to my grandmother who was born and raised in China; like Maureen Moore, whos photographed the Hudson River in New York when its covered in ice and when its teeming with boats; and Sandi Kubbs, a Polio survivor, who wrote that, who I became is intrinsically tied up with my life rowing up and down the Little Wabash.
If anyone is going to save our rivers, its you.
The good people at CNN iReport have compiled these submissions into a list of Our favorite rivers. This list isnt clickbait, nor is it nature porn. For many, its nothing short of a protest — an assertion that a river-first view will lead to a better world. As rivers have become invisible, theyve started to dry up — and without much public alarm. The Colorado, the Rio Grande, the San Joaquin (which I recently spent three weeks kayaking). These mighty waters often fail to reach the ocean.
And many others are gunked up with pollution. The Mississippi — which one of you, Neal Moore, traveled from source to sea — dumps so much fertilizer into the Gulf of Mexico that it creates an aquatic dead zone the size of Connecticut. Weve strangled that river with so much concrete that it cant bring enough life-giving sediment to the coast. A football field of wetlands floats away each hour.
Were trashing our rivers, but there is an antidote: Telling their stories.
Thanks to all of you for honoring these precious waterways. And, if you see one thats missing, theres still time to tell us about your favorite river.

Planet astronomers undetected and escort

(CNN) — A newly discovered asteroid will pass very close to Earth on Sunday, NASA says.
The space rock is estimated escort to be 60 feet (18 meters) long. Its expected to fly over New Zealand about 2:18 p.m. EDT (11:18 a.m. PDT / 18:18 UTC.)
It wont hit Earth or any of the thousands of satellites orbiting the planet, NASA says. It bayan escort ankara will give astronomers and scientists a chance to study it.

Astronauts practice landing on asteroid

Could we really capture an asteroid?

The asteroid wont be visible the naked eye, but amateur astronomers should be able to see it with telescopes.
Called 2014 RC, the asteroid was discovered on August 31 by the Catalina Sky Survey near Tucson, Arizona.
NASAs Near Earth Object Program estimates there are thousands of asteroids that could threaten Earth, but experts say none of the ones being tracked are expected to hit the planet anytime soon.
Sometimes, though, space rocks sneak by the scientists and amateur astronomers who track them. On February 15, 2013, a nearly 60-foot-wide meteor plunged into Earths atmosphere and exploded over the Russian city of Chelyabinsk with the force of about 30 nuclear bombs. The blast injured about 1,500 people.
The Chelyabinsk meteor was undetected before it was spotted by local residents as it streaked across the sky. It exploded on the same day that Asteroid 2012 DA14, one that was being carefully tracked by NASA, safely passed by Earth.
NASA is trying to speed up the way it tracks potentially hazardous asteroids and to learn how to deflect rocks that threaten Earth. Its Asteroid Initiative includes a plan to capture an asteroid and tug it into orbit around the moon in the 2020s. If it works, astronauts will land on the asteroid, take samples and bring them back to Earth.

Hayley Edwards, right, suspected her son Nathan, 14 weeks, had picked up her milk allergy A mother who took her baby escort to doctors claiming he had a milk allergy was dismissed as an anxious first-time parent was days before he was escort bayan taken to hospital when he started to choke.Hayley Edwards was brushed off when she tried to tell her GP that eskort her three-week-old boy had an allergy to cows milk, despite him being covered in rash and having swollen eyes.But when bayan escort little Nathan Hudson began to choke and was rushed to hospital by ambulance it was only then that a paediatrician finally diagnosed an allergy, as well as reflux.Miss Edwards, 31, from Wakefield, West Yorkshire, has now launched a campaign to see GPs better trained in spotting allergies in babies.Miss Edwards, who also suffers from a milk allergy, said: Nathan was covered in a rash and he had swollen, watery eyes and he was really congested.He was squirming in pain all the time – I knew what was wrong but nobody would listen.The mum took Nathan, now 16 weeks, to see a doctor at Kings Medical Centre in Wakefield but was deemed anxious and nervous.His symptoms only improved after his later diagnosis by a paediatrician at Pinderfields Hospital, when he was started on a milk-free diet and medication for reflux.A lead GP at Kings said: Even with a thriving baby such as Nathan, reflux or feeding problems can be distressing and it sometimes takes a while to get the right treatment.We are glad that after all the appointments and visits he is doing so much better.

Laras arm had been severed when a rocket-propelled grenade pierced the armor plating of his vehicle.
He suffered other life-threatening injuries, and a lacerated liver, spending months in the Walter Read Army Medical Center in Washington where Pauley would be sent two years later.
I remember I woke up from my coma and essentially thinking this is not really how I want to live, Lara tells CNN.
I didnt want to live, and for the first time in my life I was scared.
The power of golf
Like Pauley, his army days were over and with discharge came the same sense of helplessness and loss.
Lara also found support and renewed sense of purpose after being introduced to the Wounded Warrior project.
@wwpinc & the day is still young! Can't join us? You can still #makeadifference by donating! http://t.co/ebj8P5hOpF— WorldsLargestGolfOut (@wlgo_bcg) August 6, 2014
Unlike conventional tournaments, the prizes are reserved for the participants who raise the most money for the Warriors, not those with the lowest scores.
WLGO has raised over $1 million for veterans since starting four years ago, and is rapidly expanding.
Weve hit a chord within the golfing community, Hill tells CNN. Americans are passionate about assisting these brave individuals.
Finding closure
Pauley will be playing at Lincoln Hills in California, where he will be pressed into speaking duties before the tournament starts.
A regular on the dais at veterans days, he eloquently espouses their cause and the benefits of Wounded Warriors.
What happened that fateful day in Iraq changed his life forever, and it was only last year that he was able to exorcise some of the demons and guilt about the death of his colleague PFC Missildine.
Missildines family invited Pauley to visit and pay his respects, something he had been unable to do in 2006 because he was in hospital recovering from his injuries.
Pauley recalled in his personal blog the moment he first saw Missildines grave site, writing: I was cold, nearly shivering. I stood and saluted him while tears rolled down my face.
My first thought was that I wished I was in the ground instead of him … But at that instant I was overcome with a hot burning sensation and I realized Jody wouldnt want me to think like that …
Jordan Spieths life changing shot
Better economy fuels golf investment
I promised him that it wouldnt be another seven years before I came back. I stood and saluted him one final time and walked away.
Lara, who works full-time for Wounded Warriors, will perform similar speaking duties at 1757 Golf Club in Dulles, Virginia before showing off his golfing skills.
I usually break a hundred. Ive found my own technique, he says. The furthest Ive ever hit a drive is 280 yards, I normally strike it out about 230.
Breaking down barriers
Lara is thankful for his every moment after his near brush with death, and always thankful to Wounded Warriors from rescuing him from the depths of despair.
The project was formed in 2003 to give support to wounded U.S. service personnel since the events of September 11, 2001.
Nearly 40,000 veterans and their families have benefited from its various programs and fundraising efforts.
The WLGOs association has proved the perfect fit, and Hill believes golf is also benefiting from opening up its courses to people who might not normally be attracted to the sport.
Competitors pay a standard green fee and $10 donation to Wounded Warriors to play prestigious courses and to get a taste for the game.
Its broken down the some of the barriers to people who want to play golf, particularly women, who are worried about too many rules and too much protocol, Hill says.
He has big ambitions for the concept and is even considering an expansion outside of the United States.
I see no reason why we could not play on thousands of courses, on a Monday each year in August, with hundreds of thousand of golfers coming to support their heroes and to raise millions of dollars in a day.
Having already presented a check for $735,000 in January, Hill hopes this years fundraising will break through the $1 million mark.
Its a great way to raise money and awareness for the Warriors, Lara says.
He plays most weekends, sometimes with other veterans, enjoying the solitude and the chance to talk, share experiences.
You cant have a bad day on a golf course, says the 41-year-old.
Being a Warrior you want to compete whatever the event, still up for the challenge.

Regional escort bayan with is you

A woman who was bullied as a teenager and branded an ‘ugly lesbian’ because of her short hair has had escort bayan the last laugh – by getting through to the finals of a national beauty pageant.
Kirsty Baxter, 23, suffered severe bouts escort bayan of depression and even attempted suicide after years of torment.
She was targeted by cruel playground bullies where she grew up in Leicester who teased her because of her edgy looks and interest in rock music.
Kirsty (left, age 5, right, age 12) was horribily bullied as a child for her short her and alternative appearance
Kirsty beat 20 other women to come second in the regional rounds of the Miss Dream Street competition
Kirsty started self-harming as a teenager and was caught minutes after taking an overdose when she was 14.
But she has now overcome her confidence issues after finding success in a beauty pageant and has been contacted by a number of modelling and acting agencies.

Yesterday, Kirsty said: When I applied to the beauty pageant I never thought I would be first runner up in the regional rounds like alone go through to the finals.
I’ve never considered myself to be attractive, beautiful or anything like the kind of beauty that’s associated with beauty pageants.
Kirsty, pictured age 18, was tormented by her peers, branded an ugly lesbian because of her short hair
Kirsty, pictured backstage at a beauty pageant, entered the competition on a whim when she saw it on Facebook
I was bullied from about the age of 10 right up to 18 because of my looks.
It started with typical high school bullying and as I got older it progressed to centred around my appearance.
I don’t think I was fat but I was bullied because I was larger and I had short hair and everyone else was doing the teeny bop thing in the 90s.
But I dyed my hair pink and listened to rock music. I always felt different to everybody else.
I found two people who I thought were friends but then I found out they were spreading rumours behind my back.
Kristy says that pageants have done more for her confidence than any other form of therapy she has tried
It was things like because I had short hair I was a lesbian, so no girls would ever come near me.
I was always ostracised, it became a voice in my head wherever I went that said ‘you’re completely unattractive’.
Because of this I became depressed and started self-harming and I attempted an overdose when I was 14.
That was when my mum became aware of the bullying because she walked in on me.
She was able to help me out and talk about it.
Kirsty has recently completed a degree in Drama and Performance as well as a postgraduate degree in Theatre for Young Audiences at the University of Worcester.She is now auditioning for film and TV roles and plans to enter other beauty pageants thanks to her new-found confidence.
Kirsty, who now lives in Worcester with her boyfriend Mark Games, 34, added: When I was younger there was no-one that I could look up to who looked different.
Kirsty has recently completed a degree in drama and now is an aspiring actress
So I hope my story will make people realise they don’t have to be a size zero or look like Claudia Schiffer, you can be beautiful just being you.
I’ve been through various forms of therapy to help with my self confidence.
I entered the beauty pageant one a whim when I saw it on Facebook and it said it was open to all ages and all sizes.
Modelling is always something I’ve been interested in doing but I’ve never had the confidence to do it.
But since taking part in the Miss Dream Street competition I’ve entered other beauty pageants because it has given me a real boost.
My family and friends are really proud of me for conquering my fears.
I know I can now achieve whatever I want to.

Segment surfaces creases their can escort

(CNN) — When origami enthusiast Uyen Nguyen discusses her art, you quickly understand that it is about a lot more escort than folding paper.
In many ways it has been therapeutic, she says. I find the process of folding paper to be almost meditative.
Origami can be used to create incredibly realistic forms, not just to the likeness of say, an insect, but down to the exact species of that particular insect with proportions of its body segment true to real life. At escort bayan the other end of the spectrum, you can mold paper to create the most abstract of forms beautiful because of their inherent structure instead of their likeness to real life forms. As someone interested in both science and art, I love that origami bridges the two.
Worldwide movement
Now Nguyen is bringing her passion to the people of New York City.
As someone interested in both science and art, I love that origami bridges the two.
Uyen Nguyen. origami artist
For the exhibition Surface to Structure: Folded Forms, which will take place at New Yorks Cooper Union from June 19 to July 4, Nguyen has gathered more than 130 works from 88 artists around the world.
The exhibition includes adorable rabbits folded by Malaysian origamist Ng Boon Choon, and a realistic rendering of a field mouse by American Bernie Peyton.
But it also includes St. Michael — The Archangel, a more ominous work by Vietnamese origamist Tran Trung Hieu. It shows a winged angel carrying a sword.
The exhibition marks the 55th anniversary of the 1959 exhibition Plane Geometry and Fancy Figures — the first origami exhibition held in the United States, which also took place inside Cooper Union.
So far Nguyen has raised more than $24,000 of the $32,000 she needs to cover the cost of shipping the works, organizing security and building display cases.
Origami can also be used to make avant-garde fashion creations, such as this one by Czech designer Hana Coufalova.Courtesy Christopher Bierlein.
Collectively the works demonstrate how origami artists are pushing the boundaries of technique and style.
Transcending language barriers
In the 1950s, Japanese organist Akira Yoshizawa helped popularize the art by creating a universal system of diagramming, which involved arrows and illustrations rather than words. His book allowed people across the world to learn the craft and to easily construct pre-existing designs.
But today artists have moved beyond that, with many using software that helps them dream up and then fold their elaborate works.
In many ways it has been therapeutic. I find the process of folding paper to be almost meditative.
Uyen Nguyen. origami artist
Most origami involves folding one sheet of paper into some final form, Nguyen says.
Modular origami uses multiple sheets of paper, folded into identical units, and takes these units and interlocks them, without cuts or adhesive, to obtain a final form that is usually very angular and representative of geometric solids. A couple of my designs add embellishments onto the surfaces of these polyhedra.
Regional variations in the art are becoming smaller and smaller as more people learn about origami via the Internet.
However, Nguyen says that she observed a few patterns among artists while curating her exhibition.
Vietnamese artists tend to be masters of wet folding, which creates soft, gentle bends rather than sharp creases.
Their styles can be somewhat minimalist, and there is so much beauty in their simplicity, she says. The Japanese tend to be more calculated and precise with their folding, which can allow for a huge amount of detail and complexity. I think the European style of origami lies somewhere between these two extremes.

And turns said as escort bayan at

June 20, 2014. From left, Eric Idle, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin and Terry Jones of the comedy group escort bayan Monty Python pose for photographers during a photo call in London.The Associated Press
The members of Monty Python are aiming to escort bayan move like Jagger in their live farewell shows.
The five surviving Pythons have reunited for 10 dates at Londons 15,000-seat O2 escort bayan Arena starting Tuesday. Its a fast-paced comic revue that requires the septuagenarian comedians to act, sing, dance and pull off escort bayan rapid-fire costume changes.ADVERTISEMENTADVERTISEMENT
Michael Palin says the group drew inspiration from the Rolling Stones frontman, still gyrating at 70.
A kind of madness takes over, Palin told a news conference on Monday. You just leap about at a certain point.
Fellow comedian Terry Gilliam added: Our version of Brown Sugar is far better.
It turns out the Stones singer is one of Monty Pythons many famous fans. Jagger has filmed a promo clip for the show, in which he asks wryly why audiences would want to watch a bunch of wrinkly old men trying to relive their youth.
It has been 40 years since Monty Pythons Flying Circus was on television, but the anarchic troupe remains a phenomenon.
World-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking — another Python aficionado — is due to make a guest appearance in the show. Journalists at Mondays news conference came from Britain, the U.S., Canada, Australia and beyond. A Spaniard asked about the Spanish Inquisition sketch; a Finn wanted to know How do you feel about Finland?
(Answer: Monty Python wrote a song about the Nordic nation. Its in the show).
Eric Idle, who has done much of the work assembling the evening, said fans can expect old favorites, back-catalog gems and a few new twists.
Our motto has been: leave them wanting less, he said.
As well as Idle, Palin, Gilliam, John Cleese and Terry Jones, the show features a dance troupe, singing lumberjacks, Spam-loving Vikings, a dead parrot and much more. It is, unsurprisingly, a bit naughty.
Im happy and proud to say its actually rather filthy, Idle said.
The troupe last performed together at the Hollywood Bowl in 1980. Times, and the Pythons, have changed since then.
All the audience was smoking marijuana, said Jones. When John and I went into the audience we came out pretty high.
Now, said Palin, weve got some Viagra in our dressing room.
Each member of the group has adopted his own style of preparation for the 10-night stand, which ends July 20 with a show beamed to 1,800 movie theaters around the world.
Ive not been drinking for a week, said Jones. Idle has been hiking and running. Cleese has opted for sleeping more, while Palin is enduring a punishing schedule of lying down and watching television.
This may be the end of the road for Monty Python, but none of its members plans to retire. Upcoming projects include a memoir from Cleese and a movie by Jones based on Tchaikovskys Nutcracker Suite.
I think of it as a pre-posthumous memorial service, Gilliam said of the last bow.
Preposterous? Palin chipped in. The Pythons still slip seamlessly into affectionate banter when they are together.
Mortality is just another thing to be laughed at. The show is titled One Down, Five to Go in honor of the sixth Python, Graham Chapman. He died of cancer in 1989 but will appear onscreen.
Well just carry on working till we drop, said Palin.
If one of us has died, the rest of us will bring in more money.

Use preserve is escort u

(CNN) — Arab residents in the Middle East and North Africa may enjoy Hollywood blockbusters, but they are also wary escort of the content, saying it is potentially harmful to morality, a study finds.
The Entertainment Media Use in the Middle East survey, commissioned by Northwestern University and the Doha Film Institute, interviewed more than 6,000 people — both nationals and expats — in Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates.
According to the survey 45% of respondents say escort bayan they watch Hollywood movies, but 34% say American films have content that is harmful to morality.
Only 15% say U.S.-made films are good for morality — as opposed to 71% who feel the same about Arab movies.
The soundtrack to Egypts revolution
The respondents are also conflicted about other foreign films. While two-thirds say people benefit from watching movies from different parts of the world, 65% say they prefer films that portray their own culture.
Saving Syria cultural treasures
More than half (54%) say films are an important source of information about their own culture.
Millions of birds migrate in Galiliee
It is no surprise that an overwhelming number prefer Arab films, which are favored by more than 80% of overall respondents. In contrast, only around half of the citizens surveyed say they enjoy American and European movies.
A large majority of respondents believe entertainment should be regulated for both romantic and violent content. More than two-thirds agree that films or other entertainment programs should be banned if they are deemed to be offensive.
Respondents in Saudi Arabia and Egypt show the strongest support for censorship — 76% and 77% respectively. Tunisia appears to be the most tolerant of all, but still more than half of its respondents support censorship.
These apparently contradictory findings really are not, but reflect how the Arab world is coping with globalization and still grappling to preserve local culture, Everette E. Dennis, dean and CEO of Northwestern University in Qatar, says in a statement.
In early March, three Gulf countries — Qatar, the UAE and Bahrain — announced that Hollywood biblical blockbuster Noah could not be screened in cinemas, saying the depiction of Noah — whom Muslims revere as a prophet — is taboo in Islam.
Two months earlier, in January, censors in the UAE and Qatar cut more than 40 minutes of the three-hour-long Wolf of Wall Street, a Martin Scorsese-directed portrayal of a wayward stock trader, due to foul language and explicit content, angering moviegoers in both countries.
Yet, the Northwestern University-Doha Film Institute survey shows that 72% of Qatari residents and 68% of Emirati residents generally support banning offensive content.
Hollywood films are not the only ones that ran aground in the Middle East and North Africa. Qatar pulled Bollywood erotic horror flick Raaz 3 from theaters in 2012 and, along with the UAE, banned Indian comedy Grand Masti last year.
In 2012, a Tunisian court fined the head of a private TV station 2,400 Tunisian dinars (around $1,400) after his Nessma TV aired Persepolis, a French-American animated film whose depiction of God was slammed by some religious leaders as offensive to Islam.

Hong Kong (CNN) — Cerebral. Thats how bayan escort I would describe the producer, songwriter, musician Pharrell Williams if I could only use one word.
Yes, hes incredibly talented — bursa escort as co-founder of the production powerhouse The Neptunes, he and his partner Chad Hugo have netted hit after hit. They escort have worked with everyone from Britney Spears to Madonna. Justin Timberlake to Jay-Z.

Most recently, Robin Thicke probably wasnt a name you would have been familiar with until you heard this years biggest hit Blurred Lines featuring Pharrell. Yup, that was The Neptunes doing.
And dont forget about Daft Punks Get Lucky the hit No. 2 on the Billboard charts and which Billboard described as the Summer Song of 2013. Its just another part of the Pharrell phenomenon.
If you want to know more about Pharrell, you only have to look as far as the manifesto he wrote on his website. He says, I serve and represent the OTHERS because I am one myself. The others being anyone who has ever felt outside of the norm, anyone who has ever felt they couldnt be categorized, anyone who has ever felt different.

Its often safer to be inside the proverbial box. But it takes guts to not only say that the box is too small, but to go out and create a whole other space to be free and thrive. And thats what Mr. Williams has done.
For him, the internet is that space. Its a place where democracy rules but individuality reigns. Ironic since here is a guy who has succeeded where very few can. He has been accepted by the establishment in music, fashion, art and architecture. He has become the man everyone wants to work with.
Its his humility and gratitude that make people seek him out.
Monita Rajpal, host Talk Asia
In the research process and through our conversation I saw Williams as more than the man of the moment but a man with cross pop cultural influence.
He showed me a roadmap to a non-predictable professional life, one in which his career is custom-designed and climbs no particular ladder. He speaks of a collective conscience where a shift in humanity means there are no ladders. Instead, its about seeking alternate horizons by designing your own life and your own path.
Through his I Am Other initiative, (which is now the umbrella framework under which all his projects operate) Pharrell capitalizes on this shift by turning the consumer generation he influences into fellow entrepreneurs.
Talk Asia host Monita Rajpal and guest, Pharrell Williams on set.
He has created a forum where people can share and discuss ideas, thereby sealing his own position as a role model. He expresses his own ideas through music, movies, social media, and of course the internet. Williams calls it a customization era because people want what they want right now.
Williams credits his diverse career to a lifelong curiosity that his mother instilled in him. She taught him to be open to all that is around him. And he is.
From conversations with the renowned neuroscientist Dr. Vilayanur S. Ramachandran and their discussions on the psychology of music to collaborations with the artist Takashi Murakami on a sculpture, Pharrell is a man who revels in cross-platform communication because for him, life is about maximizing existence in every way.
Music has been the skeleton key thats opened every door of every opportunity that Ive had.
Pharrell Williams
For Williams though, the most important message he could share to his fans is his perspective on humanity –it is one in which we all have something to offer and it is our duty to our self-respect to live life on our terms. The goal then would be to find a way to serve humanity through our given talents.
Williams shared with me the one thing that stuck with him that Ramachandran told him. He said the apes and the monkeys reach for fruit, but man reaches for stars and thats the difference.
Through that wide-eyed wonder for all that this life has to offer, opportunities have made their way to him. He tells me music has been the skeleton key thats opened every door of every opportunity that (Ive) had.
Well that may be, but its his humility and gratitude that make people seek him out. As he says, he takes his egos hat off and (leaves) it at the door. He is comfortable in his own skin and it shows. Maybe thats why his song Happy has already had over seven million views on YouTube. We all want some of that to rub off on us. I know I do.

The many escort bayan can st

(CNN) — When origami enthusiast Uyen Nguyen discusses her art, you quickly understand that it is about a lot more escort bayan than folding paper.
In many ways it has been therapeutic, she says. I find the process of folding paper to be escort almost meditative.
Origami can be used to create incredibly realistic forms, not just to the likeness of say, an insect, but bayan escort down to the exact species of that particular insect with proportions of its body segment true to real life. At bayan escort ankara the other end of the spectrum, you can mold paper to create the most abstract of forms beautiful because of their inherent structure instead of their likeness to real life forms. As someone interested in both science and art, I love that origami bridges the two.
Worldwide movement
Now Nguyen is bringing her passion to the people of New York City.
As someone interested in both science and art, I love that origami bridges the two.
Uyen Nguyen. origami artist
For the exhibition Surface to Structure: Folded Forms, which will take place at New Yorks Cooper Union from June 19 to July 4, Nguyen has gathered more than 130 works from 88 artists around the world.
The exhibition includes adorable rabbits folded by Malaysian origamist Ng Boon Choon, and a realistic rendering of a field mouse by American Bernie Peyton.
But it also includes St. Michael — The Archangel, a more ominous work by Vietnamese origamist Tran Trung Hieu. It shows a winged angel carrying a sword.
The exhibition marks the 55th anniversary of the 1959 exhibition Plane Geometry and Fancy Figures — the first origami exhibition held in the United States, which also took place inside Cooper Union.
So far Nguyen has raised more than $24,000 of the $32,000 she needs to cover the cost of shipping the works, organizing security and building display cases.
Origami can also be used to make avant-garde fashion creations, such as this one by Czech designer Hana Coufalova.Courtesy Christopher Bierlein.
Collectively the works demonstrate how origami artists are pushing the boundaries of technique and style.
Transcending language barriers
In the 1950s, Japanese organist Akira Yoshizawa helped popularize the art by creating a universal system of diagramming, which involved arrows and illustrations rather than words. His book allowed people across the world to learn the craft and to easily construct pre-existing designs.
But today artists have moved beyond that, with many using software that helps them dream up and then fold their elaborate works.
In many ways it has been therapeutic. I find the process of folding paper to be almost meditative.
Uyen Nguyen. origami artist
Most origami involves folding one sheet of paper into some final form, Nguyen says.
Modular origami uses multiple sheets of paper, folded into identical units, and takes these units and interlocks them, without cuts or adhesive, to obtain a final form that is usually very angular and representative of geometric solids. A couple of my designs add embellishments onto the surfaces of these polyhedra.
Regional variations in the art are becoming smaller and smaller as more people learn about origami via the Internet.
However, Nguyen says that she observed a few patterns among artists while curating her exhibition.
Vietnamese artists tend to be masters of wet folding, which creates soft, gentle bends rather than sharp creases.
Their styles can be somewhat minimalist, and there is so much beauty in their simplicity, she says. The Japanese tend to be more calculated and precise with their folding, which can allow for a huge amount of detail and complexity. I think the European style of origami lies somewhere between these two extremes.
