Слава науке! Боже, храни Америку! Девочки, оказывается, мы не виноваты! Американская наука полностью реабилитировала феномен, известный в России под названием «бабья блажь». Этой эпохальной новости было посвящено очередное заседание клуба WS.
Всем мартини, докладчику кофе. Нет, наоборот, докладчик уже во всем разобрался, так что ему мартини. Остальным – кофе для лучшего схватывания мысли. Кто кричит «я против»? У вас, милая, бабья блажь! Хотя… Тут такие открытия… Ладно, мартини всем.
Переходим к докладу. Психолог из Техасского университета Сара Хилл провела соответствующие исследования и выяснила: в период экономического кризиса у женщин наступает «эффект помады». Осознав ужас собственного финансового положения и аналогичную ситуацию с мировой экономикой, женщина идет в магазин и покупает на последние деньги дорогую помаду. Или духи. Или платье. Последние деньги тоже у всех разные.
Таким образом, получается, что мы – не дуры, а жертвы мирового экономического кризиса. Ведь сколько раз так было: муж сказал, что на работе катастрофа, готовиться надо к худшему, покупку новой газонокосилки для дачи придется отложить и вообще затянуть пояса. Жена его слушает, понимает, потом идет в магазин, зажав в кулаке половину стоимости газонокосилки, и немедленно покупает себе дизайнерский пояс. Чтоб было, что затягивать, готовясь к худшему. И, конечно, помаду в тон поясу. Потому что эффект помады, а не пояса. Против науки не попрешь. А муж кричит про бабью блажь. А Сара Хилл грозит этому распоясавшемуся мужу (он же не купил дизайнерский пояс) из-за океана пальчиком и щурится строго, по-ленински.
Срочно тост за принятие в клуб WS Сары Хилл. Наша девушка, уважаем.
Теперь тост за то, что мы не виноваты.
Теперь тост за то, что мы такие не одни. Кто еще такой? Но это строго между нами! Россия!
Глава государства понимает, что кризис. И про затягивание поясов, конечно. Но так хочется напоследок! И появляется очередной дворец за миллиард. Глава не виноват – это эффект помады, так Сара сказала, а российский человек – он послушный, где его Сара поставила, там он и стоит.
И пастырю божьему говорят, мол, нехорошо, кризис кругом, надо готовиться к худшему, начинать мечтать о новой газонокосилке для церковного огорода, а у вас, батюшка, часики вон. Пастырь смущается, умом все понимает, а всем остальным, кроме ума, смириться и не может. И готов домок на два гектара в заповедном лесу. Эх, Сара, Сара…
И с кумовством пора кончать. Кризис же! Профессионалы должны, наконец, получить возможность спасти страну. А то, что 28- летний сын крупного чиновника стал руководителем стратегически важного для страны предприятия… Так ему помада не нужна! Он же мальчик! И вообще, у нас профильный министр не может правильно выговорить фамилию одно из самых известных режиссеров страны. На этом фоне тот чиновный сын – такая мелочь!
И надо, наконец, развивать конкуренцию. В кризис – особенно. Кто хочет конкурировать с «Аэрофлотом»? Вы хотите? И вы тоже? Ну и хотите на здоровье! А летать будет авиакомпания, 70% акций которой принадлежат «Аэрофлоту». Вам дорого билеты покупать? Так купите помаду, на нее точно хватит.
Правда Сара Хилл утверждает, что женщины, покупая на последние деньги дорогую помаду, подсознательно стремятся выбраться из кризиса. Логика такая: дорогая помада – неотразимая красота – богатый муж – конец кризису. Может и России удастся выйти замуж? Дай бог!

Australian Trade Minister Andrew Robb has touted the economic benefits of the TPP and expressed regret that US President Barack Obama had described it as a geo-strategic counterweight to China. Mr Nunes, however, said the TPP was community of nations that were seeking to resist Chinese economic coercion. When you add the countries that we're talking about 鈥?Japan, and Vietnam, Malaysia 鈥搕hese are all very important countries, Mr Nunes said. <But> because of the command-and-control apparatus of the state-owned enterprises system of the Chinese communist government, <China> can run roughshod over these smaller countries. Mr Nunes said the TPP was about free and fair trade, strict rule of law and effective dispute resolution mechanisms that would prevent China from repeating efforts to lim it rare earth exports to Japan or import bananas from the Philippines.

NFC scout: He'd be a good late first-round pick. He's just not elite. He's athletic. He doesn't blow you away in anything. But he has instincts. He can plant and drive. Has feet, hips, range. Good tackler. He just doesn't make many game-changing plays. 15 (Wonderlic) test. He was OK in the interview. Like Mark Barron. Not the sharpest. Harrison Smith may not be the athlete that Clinton-Dix is, but he's a better player.
p However, it鈥檚 also important to consider the stories behind the statistics. For instance, tenyear survival rates for people diagnosed with malignant melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer, have leapt from 46 per cent to 89 per cent. But, while that sounds promising, the number of people in the UK who are developing the disease in the first place has significantly increased, with more than 13,000 cases a year now, compared with about 1,800 in 1975. Factors like the increased availability of cheap sun holidays and the use of sunbeds are believed to have played a role.

"Clive Betts, its Labour chairman, said.." This just had to be another Labour-led, tax-raising measure. "There is no hard and fast rule that they will automatically use this flexibility to increase their council tax rates, but, if they do, they should be free to do so". It's almost certain that increasing rates is exactly what Labour councils like Darlington will do. Council tax doubled under the last Labour government, and Darlington Labour is still increasing council tax now by the maximum amount permitted each year. "the unfairness of people in the highest-banded properties paying 鈥渘o more than three times the tax of those in the lowest鈥?" Do those living in higher-banded properties earn 3 times as much? Maybe, but probably not. Do they receive 3 times as much in council services? Certainly not, they probably receive less. But this barmy bunch think an even higher level of wealth tax is 'fair'? Crazy. "If the citizens of New York, Frankfurt and Tokyo can be trusted with tax-raising powers.." Misleading spin. It's councils that will have this power, not 'citizens'. The idea that councils are accountable to their 'citizens' is also misleading. People cast their vote on many issues, not just one. And the reality is that Labour councils will take a view as to how their vote will be impacted by raising the tax on higher-banded properties, and if the numbers are such that they will still get elected by those in lower-banded properties, then they will just raise the tax and there's nothing those affected can do about it. Surely the fairest, most democratic way is for parties to be required to spell out to voters in advance of a local election exactly what it's council tax proposals are, and then be legally required to stick to them if they are elected. Not just be left free to increase taxes willy-nilly whenever they want, with the slight chance they may be held accountable for it once every 4 or 5 years.
