Kathy Adams, 52, has created her own consignment boutique of sorts out of her closet. bag that always seemed too heavy and its matching brown leather with suede trim accessories? She sold it all for $675. Yes, she paid about $1,000 for those items at Nordstrom. But it’s gone, out of her life, and she’s freed up some cash to buy something else.

“Once you start selling things, it’s pretty addicting,” said Adams, who lives in Sterling Heights, Mich., and sells online via the Poshmark marketplace where sellers and buyers go online or via mobile phone for women’s clothing, shoes and accessories.

It’s 2014 and time to de clutter. It’s also time to consider whether there’s actually a way to make money unloading skirts that were marked down 70 percent but never did fit, trophy purses or all those blazers that you’ll never work enough hours to actually wear.

For some women, selling stuff is a creative hobby to find money to buy more cool stuff. For others, who are struggling financially, selling stuff is a far less thrilling way to make ends meet.

I met one retired woman in mid December who was carrying what some might consider “investment” clothing into a resale shop in Clawson, Mich.

She had a smartly tailored Banana Republic suit and a Lafayette 148 executive style dress in her arms. Rita, who lives in Oakland County but didn’t want her full name used because she’s embarrassed by her financial situation,
ugg website uk Resell gently used clothes and make money
said she thought her clothes were worth more than $500 new. She sheepishly admitted she had received the items at a clothing bank, but they didn’t really fit her.

She was offered less than $15 on the spot. She declined the money and decided to see whether she could get more money by going to a consignment shop.

Some consignment shops can give you 40 percent to 45 percent of the price the merchandise sells for at the consignment shop. You also must wait for an item to sell before you get any cash. But Rita later told me the consignment shop didn’t want her items because the shop wasn’t buying winter items right now. She plans to donate the clothes now to someone else.

Sellers online can run into snags, too. One seller complained to the Better Business Bureau that she sold a flawless bag via Poshmark, but the buyer said it was stained and did not want to pay after receiving the item.

The complaint eventually was resolved when $28, after a 20 percent commission to Poshmark, was directly deposited to her account.

Another woman complained to the BBB that she sold size 8 Ugg boots in good condition, but then the Poshmark buyer didn’t want to pay and argued the boots were stained. The seller had paid $135 for the boots and sold them for $50. Later, $40 in earnings, again after the 20 percent commission, was released to her.

Yet sellers who are prepared for some hassle say unloading some of their own stockpile can turn into a way to raise extra cash.

Think of this one like recycling metal at the scrapyard but with slightly more panache.

Amber Gauthier, 34, said she has been able to make about $50 a month selling size 8 to size 10 clothes that are too big for her after she lost 15 pounds. She has sold shoes, including polka dot flats that cost her $15 that she never wore. She got about $8 for those flats.

“But it was better than zero dollars,” she said.

To make things work for her, Gauthier said she has taken time to learn the culture of where she sells items online.

A Poshmark seller needs to build a following in that social network and show enthusiasm for items being posted by other sellers, too.

Prices, while negotiable, need to be realistic, based on what’s selling at a particular store or site. A cashmere sweater bought on sale for $100 might sell for $30.

Some items turn into super bargains. Someone sold $450 Prada boots for $50 on Poshmark,

and Adams is thrilled to own those boots now: “They look brand new.”

Erie chief of Police and Mayor want to strengthen the relationship between the community and its police force.We rode along with Corporal Tom Covatto with the Quebec Unit. He tells us getting more involved in the community and engaging with kids is important. It puts officers in a more positive light, overcoming the negative feelings many pick up at a young age. Covatto says, “to a three and four year old, they kind of get that in their head that, I do anything they are going to lock me up, so its kind of nice that they get to know you and say, there is Officer Tom and today we are going to be with Officer Mike. say it more than just establishing a relationship with the community; it about connecting that community to resources.Tammie Johnson, SafeNet Housing Coordinator, says, “it a unit that has been around for years, and so have we. so it kind of family, we are a family within itself. And they see us interact with police officers and often time police officers aren people they see in their everyday lives”.SafeNet is one of the many organizations the Quebec Unit works with frequently.Covatto says, “we have a monthly meeting with the tenant managers, SafeNet, adult probation, juvenile probation, and we kind of go over what has been going on”. With the implementation of this Community Policing Model, crime has dropped within public housing by about 70% in the past 24 years.”Most people just want to live in a nice quiet area,” says Covatto, “and that why we are here to keep the peace and make sure it kind of stays that way”.Mayor Schember hopes the national pilot program the city is participating in with the US Department of Justice can be just as effective as the Quebec Unit. He says he hopes to have the program underway this spring.

uggs mens Report questions benefits of salt reduction

botas ugg Report questions benefits of salt reduction

Reducing saltconsumption below the currently recommended 2,300 milligrams about 1 1/2 teaspoons per day maybe unnecessary, according to areleased Tuesday by the Institute of Medicine (IOM).

The news follows a decades long push to get Americans to reduce the amount of salt in their diet because of strong links between high sodiumconsumption and hypertension, a known risk factor for heart disease.

The IOM, at the request of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, reviewed recent studies published through 2012 that explored ties between salt consumption and direct health outcomes like cardiovascular disease and death. determined there wasn enough evidence to say whether loweringsalt consumptionto levels between 1,500 and 2,300 mg per day could increase or decrease your risk of heart disease and mortality. But lowering sodium intake might adversely affect your health, the panel found.

new studies support previous findings that reducing sodium from very high intake levels to moderate levels improves health, said committee chair Brian Strom, the George S. Pepper professor of public health and preventive medicine at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine. they also suggest that lowering sodium intake too much may actually increase a person risk of some health problems. problems, he said, could include heart attack or death.

The current Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that a sub group of people anyoneolder than51, African Americans, and people with high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic kidney disease limit their salt intake to 1,500 mg a day.

The IOM committee found no benefit, but possibly a risk of poor health outcomes with lower salt intake in people with these pre existing conditions, but said that evidence is inconsistent and limited. population, the report said.

the committee concluded that the evidence on direct health outcomes does not support recommendations to lower sodium intake within these subgroups to, or even below, 1,500 mg per day. adults eat on average 3,400 mg of salt a day, according to the IOM. Groups like the American Heart Association (AHA) support reducing that number. In 2011, the AHA called for a reduction in daily consumption, recommending all Americans eat no more than 1,500 mg a day.

The IOM report, the AHA said Tuesday,
uggs mens Report questions benefits of salt reduction
does not accurately assess salt impact on health. the American Heart Association commends the IOM for taking on the challenging topic of sodium consumption, we disagree with key conclusions, said the association CEO, Nancy Brown. report is missing a critical component a comprehensive review of well established evidence which links too much sodium to high blood pressure and heart disease. Salt Institute says it welcomes the IOM study, calling it a major breakthrough in the salt debate.

whole thing has been blood pressure driven and this study finally looks at overall health outcomes, said Morton Satin, vice president of science and research for the institute.

study makes it very, very clear that the level of 1,500 mg that has been recommended in the dietary guidelines is not warranted, despite this full throated cry for these levels by some organizations . We hope this is the opening of the much broader review of the available evidence and a devotion to ensuring that our guidelines reflect the science. IOM panel was not asked to make recommendations on what a healthy range should be. It says more research is needed to help shed light on how lower sodium levels affect health in all Americans.

On Monday, the Center For Science In The Public Interest published results of a new investigation on what they call the food industry failed efforts to reduce sodium levels in pre packaged and restaurant foods. It called for phased in limits in an effort to prevent heart disease. The group tracked nearly 500 food products between 2005 and 2011.

strategy of relying on the food industry to voluntarily reduce sodium has proven to be a public health disaster, said CSPI executive directorMichael F. Jacobson. on the part of industry and the federal government is condemning too many Americans to entirely preventable heart attacks, strokes, and deaths each year. Does it not enter your feeble mind that some people patronize these establishments because they want to save money or perhaps they find some of the product offerings superior to those found elsewhere?

I shop at Walmart because that is the only store where I can find plain, ordinary tomato juice that is not made from processed concentrate. Likewise, Walmart store brand raisins are of higher quality than the Sunmaid brand and cost appreciably less.

In general, I find that the fresh fruits and vegetables that Walmart carries are equal in quality to any other store (Target, Cub, Rainbow) and are on average 25% cheaper. A Dole pineapple at Walmart $2.48. A Dole pineapple at Target $3.48.

My husband had a heart attack in October and I am just amazed at how much sodium is in everything. We now watch everything we eat and make everthing ourselves. His doctor wants him to keep his sodium intake around 1500 mg a day and we have been achieving that but it is a lot of work. We haven been out to eat in six months but I have to tell you I dying for a blooming onion at Outback. Look up a blooming onion at Outback. It has enough sodium for the whole day plus some.

Just because one person has eaten a ton of salt or sugar in their life and doesn have medical issues doesn mean those things don contribute majorly to other people having them. That why we run studies over many people. Put another way, anecdotes are not evidence and don have statistical significance. I referring to this paragraph:

adults eat on average 3,400 mg of salt a day, according to the IOM. Groups like the American Heart Association (AHA) support reducing that number. In 2011, the AHA called for a reduction in daily consumption, recommending all Americans eat no more than 1,500 mg a day. makes it sound like the AHA recommended less than 1500 milligrams of salt per day. But it was actually a recommendation for 1500 mg or less of sodium which is the amount of sodium contained in about 3750 milligrams of salt. So if americans eat only 3400 mg of salt per day, then they are well within the limit of 1500 mg of sodium per day. But I suspect that statement about daily salt intake is erroneous, and it refers to average sodium intake instead.

mens ugg boots sale clearance Report claims Samsung Galaxy Note 7 battery crisis caused by rush to outshine iPhone 7

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fiasco highlights the challenge of packing more power into much thinner phones, all while rushing for earlier release dates.

Shortly after its release, reports emerged that the Note 7 handsets were exploding and experts now believe the real culprit was Samsung’s urgency to be beat Apple.

Once rumors surfaced that Apple’s latest device wasn’t set to be the year’s biggest innovation, Samsung executives ‘pushed suppliers to meet tighter deadlines, despite loads of new features’.

Shortly after Samsung released the Galaxy Note 7, incidents surfaced that handsets were exploding. Although explosions are due to overheating batteries, experts believe the real culprit was Samsung’s urgency to be beat Apple

BEATING APPLE FOR A PRICE Many believe that the root of the exploding batteries comes from Samsung’s rush to beat Apple.

While employees scrambled to meet the early launch date, suppliers also stretched their work hours and were under more pressure than usual.

Samsung executives agreed to move production ahead of schedule in order ‘launch a new phone they were confident would dazzle consumers’ and take advantage of Apple’s letdown, people familiar with the matter toldBloomberg.

Samsung was able to pack the Note 7 with a range of cutting edge technology in just a short time.

This includes a high resolution screen that stretches around the edges, iris recognition security and of course, a faster charging battery.

But withina few days of the launch, reports surfaced that the Note 7’s battery was bursting into flames. Koh, agreed to move production ahead of schedule in order ‘launch a new phone they were confident would dazzle consumers’ and take advantage of Apple’s letdown, people familiar with the matter toldBloomberg.

By doing so, Samsung was able to pack the Note 7 with a range of cutting edge technology in just a short period of time.

This includes a high resolution screen that stretches around the edges, iris recognition security and of course, a faster charging battery.

However, this accelerated production came at a cost.

On August 2, Samsung took the stage in New York to unveil its 5.7 inch handset, a place where the firm also saw an opportunity to take a stab at Apple.

‘Want to know what else it comes with?’ teased Samsung’s vice president of marketing, Justin Denison.

‘An audio jack. I’m just saying.’

Within a few days of the launch, it appeared Samsung was eating their own words after reports surfaced that the Note 7 was bursting into flames. Koh, agreed to move production ahead of schedule in order ‘launch a new phone they were confident would dazzle consumers’ and take advantage of Apple’s letdown, the iPhone 7 (pictured)

In the meantime, Samsung had short term solutions such as shutting phones off and not using them to a software patch that prevents batteries from overheating.

‘This is creating an enormous problem for the company for its reputation and ability to support its customers when there’s a problem,’ David Yoffie, a management professor at Harvard Business School and board member at Intel Corp, told Bloomberg.

While employees scrambled to meet the early launch date, suppliers also stretched their work hours and were under more pressure than usual.

One supplier told Bloomberg that ‘it was particularly challenging to work with Samsung employees this time, as they repeatedly changed their minds about specs and work flow’.

WHY WERE THE BATTERIES EXPLODING?

Lithium batteries are use in a range of consumer electronic devices, favored by manufacturers because they are lightweight and pack much more energy into a small space than other power cells.

But storing so much energy in a tiny space, with combustible components separated by ultra thin walls, makes them susceptible to overheating if exposed to high temperatures, damage or flaws in manufacturing.

If the separators fail, a chemical reaction can quickly escalate out of control.

Koh Dong jin, Samsung’s mobile president told reporters in Seoul: ‘The flaw in the manufacturing process resulted in the negative electrodes and the positive electrodes coming together.’

Replace Your Dryer With An Old Fashioned Clothes Line

Curated By Susanne Leave a Comment

Drying your laundry outside on a clothes line can save you quite abit of money and is easier than you may think. Yes, I am talking about the good good old fashioned method of hanging your clothes on a laundry line to dry. Over the past decade or two this has become somewhat of a rarity. In fact, many developments and even entire cities now prevent you from hanging your clothes outside to dry. It is a shame, especially when skipping the dryer has quite a few benefits including being better for the environment.

I just love the smell of air and sun dried laundry. There is nothing else like. No fabric softener or scented dryer sheet can come close to that smell. Your clothing will also look better after drying out in the sun. Sunshine is a very powerful stain remover and will get your whites whiter. Unfortunately it will also fade color over time in dark clothing, so don leave it out there any longer than you need to.

The biggest reason to use a laundry line is that you will save quite a bit of money over time. Let start with the obvious. Your dryer uses quite a bit of power. That power isn used if you take a few minutes to hang damp clothes outside. By the way, hanging up laundry isn has hard or labor intensive as you may think. Just take them outside, pin them on the line and then let the air do the rest. After that it just a matter of taking it down, folding or hanging your clothes and putting them away (something you would still need to do with the dryer anyway).

You should also keep in mind that dryers aren exactly cheap. By using yoru dryer less (or not at all), it will last much longer, thus putting off the purchase of a new one. This alone adds quite a bit to your overall savings. But it doesn stop there put off quite a bit of heat and during the warmer months, your air conditioning has to run longer and harder to compensate, adding to your power bill and thus the total cost of running that dryer.

I sure you have noticed that dryers aren exactly gentle on clothes and wear on them over time. That of course results in you having to go shopping for new garments more often. Of course that can be fun, but it also can cost quite a bit of extra money over time (which you could be saving by hanging your clothes out to air dry and thus being able to wear them much longer.

Does all of this add up to suggest that you need to throw out your dryer? Of course not. But I hope the points above inspire you to rethink using it for everything. Sheets and towels for example are easy to line dry. String up some twine across a spot in the back yard and hang them out to dry. Next you may want to give drying your whites out in the sun a try. I am sure you will be impressed by the stain removing powers of the sun.

You may also want to consider getting a small drying rack that you can use either inside or outside depending on weather conditions. Use it for shirts and blouses as well as socks and the likes. The rack does not use a lot of space and it is light and easy to move. Best of all it will keep your clothes looking their best longer.

Another great way to save on laundry and be more environmentally friendly is to make your own laundry soap. Here a recipe for my favorite homemade laundry detergent. It cleans as well as any commercial product and is quick and easy to make. I also like this easy homemade laundry detergent recipe. Give both a try and see which one you prefer.

official uggs Repairing relations in rural Canada

More than a week after a controversial not guilty verdict in the shooting death of Colten Boushie in Saskatchewan, questions continue to gnaw at Clint Wuttunee, chief of the Red Pheasant Cree Nation: Why didn RCMP do a better job of securing the crime scene? And why did they treat Boushie family and friends so insensitively in the immediate aftermath?

Veteran ranchers Rick and Gail Kehler, who closely followed the trial of fellow farmer Gerald Stanley thinking all the while it could have been them in his shoes have a different question for the Mounties: Why weren Boushie friends charged with any offences?

The case has exposed deep divisions across rural communities and sparked heated debates over the need for criminal justice reform, but Canada national police force has not escaped the maelstrom. Indigenous and non Indigenous residents alike continue to have pointed questions over the way RCMP carried out their investigation, and there is no doubt the force next commissioner expected to be announced soon will be forced to find ways to repair what some residents say is a broken trust.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is keen to appoint a woman or someone with experience on the Indigenous file to take the helm of the force.

RCMP is in a very difficult position, said Glen Luther, a professor of law at the University of Saskatchewan. have farmers complaining about under policing and you tend to have an Indigenous population complaining about over policing.

On Feb. 14, APTN News reported that a Mountie posted a message about the Boushie case in a private Facebook group that stood to inflame the tensions. The message read: bad the kid died but he got what he deserved.

RCMP spokeswoman Staff Sgt. Tania Vaughan said, Feb. 15, the post was to the standards of the force and being investigated. The RCMP is to the reconciliation process with Indigenous peoples, and improving upon these relationships in every way possible, she said.

Boushie, 22, died after being shot in the head on Stanley farm in August 2016. The trial heard that Boushie and a group of friends had been drinking earlier that day and ended up with a flat tire. They tried breaking into a truck on another farm before going onto the Stanley property.

Stanley, who was acquitted of second degree murder, had told the court that the shooting was accidental.

Boushie relatives have previously complained that when police showed up at their home to notify them of his death, officers treated them insensitively and carried out an unlawful search of the home.

An internal RCMP investigation ultimately dismissed the allegations after concluding that officers were in a situation wherein they were tasked with notifying Boushie family of his death while also actively searching for a witness who had fled the crime scene.

The family has now asked the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP to review the file. Chris Murphy, a lawyer for the family, said it clear to him police could done a better job of thinking in advance how to approach Boushie mother, Debbie Baptiste, in a sympathetic manner.

Without such forethought, he said, not thinking about (the family feelings. They devalued.

During trial, court heard of other alleged missteps by police. Investigators, for instance, had allowed the vehicle in which Boushie had been shot to sit exposed in a rainstorm with a door ajar,
ugg bling Repairing relations in rural Canada
potentially washing away evidence. Court also heard that the same vehicle was released to an impound lot before the defence team even had a chance to examine it.

is the family supposed to think when these missteps are happening time and time again? Is any reasonable observer going to suggest to the Baptiste family that they should trust the police? Murphy said.

don know if it resource issue or a competency issue. It one of the two.

RCMP officials in Saskatchewan and at headquarters declined interview requests from Postmedia. In written statements, they said they could not discuss the specific allegations, citing the ongoing review by the RCMP watchdog and the fact the Crown may appeal the not guilty verdict.

The statements, however, went on to say that RCMP members meet regularly with national Indigenous organizations to discuss ways to prevent crime and reduce victimization of Indigenous people. In Saskatchewan, the commanding officer has an Aboriginal advisory committee and regularly consults with chiefs and councils.

When cadets join the training academy, classroom exercises cover Indigenous rights and culture, officials said. A new interactive exercise exposes cadets to Indigenous history and gives them a sense of the loss, suffering and discrimination experienced by Indigenous people following European settlement.

All new members are also expected to take an online Aboriginal and First Nations awareness course that covers Indigenous history, geography and contemporary issues, officials said.

The force has also been working with the Assembly of First Nations to develop recruiting strategies. Currently, there are 1,500 Indigenous officers on the force, representing about eight per cent of the officer ranks.

Kim Jonathan, vice chief of the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations in Saskatchewan, said this week she is encouraged by these efforts but said more needs to be done. She cited former RCMP commissioner Bob Paulson acknowledgement in 2015 at an Assembly of First Nations conference that are racists in my police force.

it enough? No, absolutely not, she said.

Wuttunee agrees. Feelings of resentment and distrust toward the RCMP continue, he said. And the over representation of aboriginals in Canada prisons reflects ongoing subjugation of Indigenous people that goes back to the days of the North West Mounted Police.

want to keep the control over us and keep us down, he said.

What needed isn more training but better of RCMP officers in Indigenous communities they serve, Murphy said.

(supervisors) are managing their members, they have to make sure it part of the daily routine. You ask the question, did you do today to make an Indigenous person trust police more? he said.

are deep seated feelings here that have to be changed.

Meanwhile, rural Saskatchewan farmers say they, too, have been feeling neglected by police, but for a different reason.

Work is expected to begin with the addition of a family friendly restaurant called Match Eatery and Public House which will have a separate entrance allowing it to welcome and serve minors, and a patio next to the St. Clair River, said Tony Santo, CEO of Gateway Casinos and Entertainment.

The company, which also has casinos in Western Canada and Northern Ontario, recently purchased the Point Edward casino, along with Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation sites in London, Dresden, Woodstock, Clinton and Hanover.
