This winter, choose from oversized and masculine, Fifties-inspired fit-and- flare, or the cosy all-English duffel. Better yet, invest in all three.
I’ve never liked to play second fiddle to men, individually or collectively. I grew up being coached by my mother that the best way around their influence was to use your feminine charm, but I always rallied against this approach. Too many pats on the head by paunch-ridden, patronising stalwarts of the business community (who assumed that because I wore a skirt and had blue eyes I knew little of the big themes of life) ensured I didn’t

Forfeiture in its modern form began with federal statutes enacted in the nineteen-seventies and aimed not at waitresses and janitors but at organized crime bosses and drug lords. Lawenforcement officers were empowered to seize money and goods tied to the production of illegal drugs. Later amendments allowed the seizure of anything thought to have been purchased with tainted funds, whether or not it was connected to the commission of a crime. Even then, forfeiture remained an infrequent resort until 1984, when Congress passed the Comprehensive Crime Control Act. It established a special fond that turned over proceeds from forfeitures to
Continue reading Whether this should be the law whether, in the absence of a judicial finding of guilt, the state should be able to take possession of your property has been debated since before American independence. In the Colonial period, the English Crown issued writs of assistance that permitted customs officials to enter homes or vessels and seize whatever they deemed contraband. As the legal scholars Eric Blumenson and Eva Nilsen have noted, these writs were among the key grievances that triggered the American Revolution. The new nations Bill of Rights would expressly forbid unreasonable searches and seizures and promise that no one would be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process. Nonetheless, Congress soon authorized the use of civil forfeiture actions against pirates and smugglers. It was easier to prosecute a vessel and seize its cargo than to try to prosecute its owner, who might be an ocean away. In the ensuing decades, the practice fell into disuse and, aside from a few brief revivals, remained mostly dormant for the next two centuries.
В отличив от большинства дэтовых банд, которые все больше и больше углубляются в авангардные дебри, музыка Unleashed на последнем гиганте заметно упростилась — стала доступней, незамысловатей.
«Это верно в какой-то минимальной степени», — соглашается лидер группы Джонни Хэдлунд, — «пластинка ‘Where No Life Dwells’ была действительно сложнее. Мы хотим делать простую музыку для простых людей. И это нам удалось впервые хорошо на свежем диске ‘Victory’. В этом отношении мы сами — очень простые люди. Я, например, никогда бы не смог выступить в одной программе с Ингви Мальмстином. Его музыка больше рассчитана на людей, увисающих со сложных технических фишек. Я не

One staffer has found a way to cure her acne for good — but it comes at a cost…
For as long as I can remember, I’ve struggled with my skin. What my mum promised would be a temporary case of teenage acne was still there at the age of 26.
People can be really cruel when it comes to your face. An ex once told me quite bluntly that, despite my best efforts at coverage, I wasn’t fooling anyone. And at a party one guy approached me only to ask, «What’s that on your face?» Prick.
It gets to
