  • Cummer’s ‘Icons of Style’ looks at high fashion as fine art

    October 24th, 2014

    As high fashion has evolved from the 1950s to the 2010s, so has the way we consume it.

    In the 1950s, runway shows were low-key affairs intended to give audiences a sense of how new designs would look on human beings, or at least how they would look on exceptionally fit and beautiful human beings. Photographs and illustrations in high-end fashion magazines brought the new look to the general public.

    Today, runway shows have evolved into spectacles and the general public gets its best look at high fashion by watching the arrival on the red carpet of celebrities at awards shows and important premieres. Photography and the magazines that present the images have gone digital. The elegant...

    Soaring cost of pet care: Big bills animal lovers still willing to pay

    October 24th, 2014

    One of theprimaryreasons for the increasingcost of pet care is the risingprice of medications.

    DR. PASQUALE MELELEO:

    A lot of the medications we use for pets are human medications.

    For example as humans begin to move to more advanced inhalers, animals still useaerosol inhalers for feline asthma.

    Because there is no longer a huge market foraerosol inhalers, the price has skyrocketed for them.

    He saidinhaler medications amount to about $200 per month.

    PC Gaming At 4K Is The Killer App For Ultra HD TVs

    October 23rd, 2014

    This is the kind of thing that triggers entirely irrational purchasing decisions, forcing me to spend all my money straight away like water rushing out down a drain.

    Pictures dont do it justice, especially when captured on a smartphone in the fast-fading afternoon light, but youll have to take my word for it. This was probably the best-looking racing game I have ever seen, being displayed on what I am certain is the best TV I have ever viewed. Resolution is only one small part of the overall picture quality race, but as gamers the world over know from the ongoing PS4 versus Xbox One polite debate (and the constant PC master race smugness), it does matter. It matters big time.

    October 22nd, 2014

    Animals Often Center Of Nasty Divorce Proceedings When Bay Area Couples Split

    October 22nd, 2014

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) In San Francisco, dogs don’t just outnumber kids, they often are the ‘kids,’ and when couples split up, the fur often begins to fly over their pets.

    Couples stay married for an average of just eight years in the United States, shorter than the lifespan of most cats and dogs.

    In the past five years, divorce attorneys across the nation have seen almost a thirty-percent jump in pet disputes.  Except animals aren’t treated like kids in court – pets are property, not people, which is often surprising to their owners.

    “The concept that a pet is going to be treated as a piece of furniture is stunning to them,”...
