Donald Albritton initially went to his ex girlfriend’s house on Thanksgiving to thank her for not filing a police report against his teenage daughter.

The two believe she stole Ugg Boots and a Juicy Couture bracelet from his ex, Megan White. Mr. Albritton even gave Ms. White a $30 restitution payment for the stolen goods and expressed his gratitude for not involving the police.

But when Ms. White took off her engagement ring to make Thanksgiving dinner, Mr. Albritton picked up the ring and walked away with it, witnesses told police.

A few days later, Ms. White filed a police report after she was informed Mr. Albritton gave her engagement ring to his wife in an effort to “patch up his marriage.”

Mr. Albritton, 35,

He also faces charges of simple assault, criminal attempt to commit robbery, criminal conspiracy and robbery in an unrelated incident the night of Nov. 11, when city police said he punched a man in the face on the 300 block of Lackawanna Avenue, threw him over a bike rack and took his cellphone.

Mr. Albritton was arraigned on all charges Tuesday and is slated for a preliminary hearing Tuesday. He was released from custody on $25,000 unsecured bail.

ugg mens slippers Mall Santa hosts special needs children

kensington uggs Mall Santa hosts special needs children

Lehigh Valley Mall opens doors early for ‘Caring Santa’ event.

But for some children with special needs, the malls are literally overstimulating, and this has prevented them from going there to meet Santa.

On Sunday, however, they could at the Lehigh Valley Mall, which opened its doors an hour early for what it billed as its Caring Santa event.

“Just for her to have a normal experience like every other kid is important to us,” Karrie Marko of Mountain Top, Luzerne County, said of her 7 year old daughter, Sydney.

Sydney, who developed an undiagnosed condition at the age 3, can have seizures when stressed. To accommodate such children, the mall initiated Caring Santa, making a point to reduce sensory triggers. For example, the lights were dimmed, the music was turned off, and the escalators were halted.

After seeing Santa so many times on TV,

Sydney and her twin brother were clearly thrilled to finally meet him in person.

Santa seemed to be enjoying the experience just as much. He described it as “a little more emotional” than his typical day at the mall. “These children love life,” he said.

Francine Stanely of New Tripoli said past attempts to introduce her daughter, Katie, to Santa had been unsuccessful. After standing in long lines, her daughter, who is 9 and has a disability, would in the end balk at her long awaited chance sit on Santa’s lap.

Katie showed no such reluctance on Sunday. She sat with Santa and told him about the iPod case, UGG boots and Barbies on her wish list.

“I have pictures of him with Santa,” Stanely said, gesturing to her son, pausing to let a wave of emotion pass, “but not with her, so it means a lot.”

Coral Riechard, 8, of Wescosville, met the Easter bunny then, and she was back this time to meet Santa. Apparently the two hit it off,

because Coral was all smiles and laughter afterward.

ugg boots for sale uk Makeup Artist Reveals How to Get a Red Carpet Glow

Celeb makeup artist Patrick Ta is a red carpet regular.

While you may not see him in front of the cameras, his client roster, which includes Jenna Dewan Tatum, Olivia Munn, Chrissy Teigen and Gigi Hadid (to name a few), is invited to the vast majority of A list events. Therefore, his schedule is just as packed (if not more) as top celebrities. And, if you’re lucky enough to reserve his time, you’re sure to end up with a look that lights up the carpet (literally and figuratively).

In honor of the launch of the Cover FX Glitter Drops and Shimmer Veils, the celebrity makeup artist completed a live demonstration using the glitter infused products and revealed his tips for achieving radiant skin on camera.

“Depending on whether you’re going to be on camera or not, I like to apply [highlighter] to the highest, flattest point on your face,” the beauty pro suggested while applying the Custom Enhancer Drops in Moonlight to the model’s face with a flat brush. “I was so confused when I would do my clients’ makeup and I’d put so much highlighter on, but there would be no pay off in the photos. I was applying it to where the cheekbone curved in if you apply it right on to the flattest point of the cheekbone, when you turn to the side or if you’re walking down the street and the sun hits you, it’s the best.”

After applying the glitter drops just above the model’s contour, her golden radiance was hard to miss.

“When I started using liquid highlighter, I feel like you can see the glow from a mile away,” he explained. “I do makeup on the red carpet more than like everyday love highlighters that look rich and wet, like skin. There’s a difference between that and having a cheap highlighter that makes your skin look dry and accentuates all of the bumps and wrinkles that nobody wants.”

Her radiance, however, didn’t stop at her cheeks. To get the camera to pick up her pout, the beauty pro added the Shimmer Veil (which would normally be worn as an eyeshadow) to the model’s lips.

“When you put a little glow right onto the center of your lips, if you’re going to a red carpet, when the camera hits, it ties the whole look together,” he recommended to the audience of beauty editors, bloggers and makeup artists.

ugg boots red maker Eddie Oygur suing US footwear giant Deckers

real ugg boots sale uk maker Eddie Oygur suing US footwear giant Deckers

A Sydney ugg boot maker is counter suing an American footwear company who has accused of of breaching trademark over the use of the word ‘ugg’.

Eddie Oygur, the founder and owner of Australian Leather in Sydney, launched legal action against earlier this year against Deckers who claim they own use of the word ‘ugg’.

Mr Oygur told Daily Mail Australia that the lawsuit from the US footwear giant came after they sent him legal documents alleging that he had illegally sold the boots in the US.

Scroll down for video

Australian entrepreneur Brian Smith, cousin of Dick Smith, brought the idea to the US and registered ‘ugg’ with the US Patent and Trademark Officein 1985

‘The American public dont knowI feel sad that the US consumers,’ Deckers deceived them, she added.

Mr Terceiro said that he and his American counterparts believe they have a strong case in the Chicago district court against the footwear giant which can be found in his 2014 autobiography ‘The Birth of a Brand’.

‘Brian Smith told the trademark office that the word ugg was not a generic term. We believe that we can prove what he said was false,’ he said.

‘Theyre view is that weve got a strong case against Deckers and the judge we’re confident the judge will agree with us,
ugg boots red maker Eddie Oygur suing US footwear giant Deckers
‘ he added.

Mr Oygur hopes their case against Deckers will open up more opportunities for the remaining ugg boot makers and create a regional trademark for Australian manufacturers

‘Hopefully we can put him in the witness box to admit he knew it,’ he added.

If successful, Mr Oygur said the case will open up more opportunities for the few remaining authentic Australian manufacturers.

‘I am doing this for every ugg boot manufacturer in Australia,’ he said.

‘We would like to turn it into a regional trademark which means that every manufacturer in Australia can enjoy the benefits of exporting ugg boots,’ he added.

ugg knitted boots Make Your Own Remote Power Switches

navy ugg boots sale Make Your Own Remote Power Switches

that many electronic devices continue to consume some power even when they are turned off). One way to eliminate standby power is to use a power bar or surge protector with a built in switch to turn off connected devices completely, but these are annoying and rarely get used in practice for 2 reasons:1. Power bars are usually located under desks or are otherwise obstructed making the switches difficult to access.2. I can turn off just the outlets I want with a switch placed exactly where I want it. See examples of some of my remote switch installations below. Most power bars already have an illuminated switch. You could simplify this project by simply relocating that switch remotely, but I prefer to have a remote switch that only controls some of the outlets on the power bar allowing others to be “always on”.2. Costs for Digikey components decrease with quantity. It will also take you less time per unit if you build several at once. I purchased 10 each of the switches and enclosures for this reason.3. This particular power bar was for a computer, so I used a surge protected power bar. The switch also contains a light. Scribe an outline with these dimensions on the side of the housing. Then use an exacto knife to carefully cut away the plastic to the scribe line. Pre tin the wire ends and switch terminals with solder. Others are not easily opened. They may be glued or riveted closed. Where is a good place to drill a hole through the side for your remote switch cord to enter?2. Where is the hot wire (black) that feeds the group of outlets you would like to control?3. If the desired location is right on the seam where the two halves of the power bar housing meet, just reassemble the power bar before drilling. Cut the hot wire (black) in the power bar that you chose in an earlier step. Make sure the black cord wire goes to the hot side of the black cut wire in the power bar. Assume further that the equipment is in use 40 hours a week (an office computer setup for example). Therefore, there are 128 hours a week when the equipment would normally have been in standby mode. That corresponds to 99.84 kWh per year. At roughly $0.07 per kWh (the price where I live), that is a savings of about $7.00 per year. Therefore the time till payback on materials alone is at least a couple years. It’s probably 5 6 years if you value your own time at a reasonable rate. But it does pay back eventually, and if you are running a lot of equipment (for example if you have a home business) the savings start to become significant. There’s also the convenience and coolness factor of turning off multiple pieces of equipment with a custom mounted illuminated switch. Honestly.

Ask Question33 Commentsbellyr68 4 years agoReply

I find out this product at Amazon, this works just great! Watchdog timers, grouping for the outlets for reboot/timers. Everything you need in a fancy pants power strip. Only lacks power usage monitoring, and environmental probes. And would be great if it did my laundry, but alas it only saves me truck rolls. Good article!

Overall,
ugg knitted boots Make Your Own Remote Power Switches
this is a good idea, however, there are a few issues with killing all power to electronics that should be remembered.1. computers : if i recal correctly, the BIOS battery is only under load when the computer is unplugged. Therefore, killing power to the computer would shorten the life of the bios battery (which is needed for power outages, upgrades, and moves) a dead BIOS battery can be a real bummer when they’re soldered in, or in an impossible clip, and your power goes out2. stereo equipment on most equipment, clocks and presets are dead without standby. if not, your running a battery (or using non volatile memory, which is rare). In the long run, you’re creating hazardous waste by killing batteries prematurely. 3. TV say goodbye to channel programming and time. I’d hate to reset those everytime i wanna watch tv.4. everything else wall warts / cheap transformers are your biggest waste, in my experience. separating those out and switching only those would save almost as much electricity (imho) without the frustration. unless you have wall warts for any of the above devices. the best solution would be a less wasteful transformer to replace all your wall warts. I’ll see what I can do.

cleaning uggs Make Your Own Bones for Halloween

ugg outlet online Make Your Own Bones for Halloween

Introduction: Make Your Own Bones for HalloweenOk Its getting close to Halloween, and thats my favorite holiday to decorate for. I really like skeletons and such, but im really not into obtaining real bones (at least not my own) and the fake ones can cost a good bit. So I decided to make my own. Now this instructable will show you how to make the molds so you can make your own bones over and over. Im not going to show you how to make an entire skeleton, but with these steps you should be able to make the rest of the molds on your on. Object to make a mold fromMold compound in our case we will use liquid latexPlaster cloth used to make a frame for our latex moldA clean, Taclon brush. used to “paint” on the latex. Dont use a regular paint brush. Ill explain later. Clay used to make a base for the moldPlastic food wrapStep 2: Preparing the Object to Be CastedOk, for this instructable, ill be using a jaw bone. You can use any thing. Iv even casted a human skull. Im going to show you how to do a simple cast. This will capture the detail on all the sides except the very bottom. The reason I do this is because it makes it so much easier when you remove the mold. Also, for this mold I used regular potters clay. However iv also used the modeling clay that doesn’t dry out and It worked just fine. Next build clay up around the bone until there are no gaps between the bone and the clay base you made. The picture below was taken days after I made my mold, so the clay dried up and receded. The stuff I bought said to apply 6 coats. I applied 11 to be safe. The first 4 coats should be thin and cover every thing. the first few coats are the ones that capture the detail. Also be patient. Let each coat dry before adding another. Make sure you cover the top of your base also, and get into all of the crevices. Here is a good tip. Don’t use a regular paintbrush with the hair like bristles. I know you want to pull the mold off and start pouring, but we cant just yet. The reason is because you have just made a floppy, unsupported mold. If you try to pour in a casting material, it’ll just spill right out. So after you have applied all of your layers of latex, and they have dried throughly, your going to wrap your mold in clear food warp. The clear wrap should loosely hug the jaw, but the plaster cloth should kind of blanket the bone. In other words, the Cloth is going to harden, and if it curves around the bone, your not going to be able to get it off. It needs to be able to be pulled up without catching on any thing.(ugg hard to explain but once you do it you’ll under stand)Step 5: Making Sure Every Thing WorkedOk, now its time to see if your mold turned out ok. Gently pull off the cloth frame. If the bone kind of hangs in there (which mine did) gently pull the frame outwards until the bone releases. Note that some of the clear wrap may have became stuck in plaster cloth and is causing it to hang up. Just take your time and you’ll get it out. Then gently pull off the latex mold. Dont worry about stretching it out. First re insert the mold into the mold frame. Make sure that the mold is open so that the casting material can fill in all of the areas. For this instructable I will be using plaster. One its cheap, two its easy to mix. Also plaster drys enough to be removed from the mold in about an hour. The downside with plaster is that it chips easy and does not hold up to moisture at all. After I make something I spray it with a weather resistant paint to prevent it from melting if it gets wet. After the plaster has set up for an hour, peel off the mold just as you did off of the original. 10:50 AMDramatic Imagerysays:Nice instructable. Before you start coating your base model with the latex, you can coat it in a release agent that will help with keeping the mold from sticking to everything. You can buy some commercial stuff or do as he says and coat it with talcum or baby powder. is there another material to use other than plaster? something more durable? it chips with every slight impact.

UnaKRon 8 years agoReply

Nice instructable. Like you said in step 4 be careful with the plaster, mother mold. Just like a matrix mold if there is not enough latex/silicone/flexible medium between an undercut of the original/casting then you can have the mold seize. Use thicker layers to help even out the undercuts,
cleaning uggs Make Your Own Bones for Halloween
which will help when pulling the castings made of a hard medium.

Sometimes its good to put a channel or two for the mother mold of plaster to make sure the latex sits correctly.

I’m planning an RTV silicone instructable to do the same thing but for larger undercuts(because we can’t all afford shore 20 pourable silicone/polyurethane). We will see if I ever get around to it 😛

How Tiger Woods, in his heyday, made golf cool by transcending itplay

Tiger calls ’97 Masters win the ‘most significant’ he’s ever had (0:58)In a conversation with Scott Van Pelt, Tiger Woods explains why winning the Masters in 1997 was so crucial to his career. Then, too, there was that name Tiger and the fact he looked different than all the other golfers he was beating so regularly.

Whatever it was, Tiger Woods has been as much a cultural comet in professional golf as a victorious one. Open in 2008, Woods drew mores eyes to him and his sport than any other golfer ever. In his prime, Woods turned tournaments into must watch events, even for those who’d never teed up a golf ball.

He was compelling, a perfect blend of talent and charisma suited for a growing American diversity and the digital age. TV ratings, galleries and prize money all increased significantly. People had to watch. Woods dragged golf a sport most Americans have never played into the Land of Cool.

“Tiger embodied a kind of modern cool that golf hadn’t seen before,” said Orin Starn, a professor of cultural anthropology at Duke University. AP Photo/Peter CosgroveAmong professional athletes for most of the early 2000s, Woods ranked with basketball icon Michael Jordan at the top of the Q Score, which rates popularity and marketing appeal. In 2008, Forbes ranked Woods No. 2 on its annual Celebrity 100 list, based on fame and money. Only Oprah Winfrey was higher.

Plus, he was making cultural as well as sports history. In 1997 at just 21, he stormed to a win at the Masters, shooting a record score and living up to years of hype. That it came at Augusta National, where African Americans hadn’t been allowed to play until 1975, put him in a special place. The attention just kept coming, with 13 other major victories including four straight and 79 total wins on tour. So to have this charismatic, young African American Asian American hybrid figure bursting onto the scene made huge news.”

Rick Schloss, the former longtime media director of the annual PGA Tour event at Torrey Pines in San Diego, recalled how the galleries swelled when Woods came to the tour, attracting a younger element interested in one thing: Tiger.

“They’d go there to watch him,” Schloss said. “They don’t know what else is going on. They’ve got their Ugg boots on, the hats on backwards, they’ve got a craft beer, and they know he’s cool.”

In 2001, after he won four straight majors, Americans polled by Gallup named him as the nation’s No. 1 athlete. His favorability rating was on a par with the likes of Jordan, John Glenn, Colin Powell and Pope John Paul II.

Yet Woods slipped from that perch in 2009, when his off the course life turned upside down with a personal scandal that led to divorce. He took a leave from golf for several months. He lost sponsorships. When he returned, he wasn’t the same. His smile, swing and putting stroke were diminished.

His last tour win came in 2013, and he failed to reach the weekend at his only two starts in 2017, missing the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open in late January and withdrawing due to injury from a European Tour event after one round in Dubai a week later. He hasn’t played since.

Prior to that, Woods missed nearly a year and a half because of a back injury, although he did play the Hero World Challenge, an unofficial PGA Tour event that he hosts, in December.

Woods was still in high school when he made his PGA Tour debut as a 16 year old amateur at the 1992 Los Angeles Open. He missed the cut. AP Photo/Bob GalbraithIn his absence, golf’s attendance and TV ratings suffered.

Now 41, Woods has skipped three 2017 tournaments (the Genesis Open, Honda Classic and Arnold Palmer Invitational) that he typically plays each year, and his next move remains unknown. He even WD’d from a news conference prior to the Genesis Open, which is run by the Tiger Woods Foundation.

Woods hasn’t given up hope of making what would surely be a dramatic return at next week’s Masters. Starn, for one, is looking forward to seeing Woods back inside the ropes.

Said Starn: “There’s always interest in a comeback story in America.”

TIGER’S CELEBRITY PRECEDED HIM to the PGA Tour. Amateurs). He and other celebrities from the sports and entertainment world were like magnets, attracting one another. He lived in a different, more star studded world than golf’s other top players.

Woods appeared on the sidelines at NFL and basketball games. He played golf with Jordan, Charles Barkley and Tony Romo. He hung with Mark Cuban, Michael Phelps, Jon Bon Jovi, Sting and Will Ferrell. Each year, the Tiger Jam fundraiser for his Tiger Woods Foundation in Las Vegas delivered the celebs. It all brought more attention to golf and the tournaments he played.

Chris Zimmerman, the former director of advertising for Nike and then the company’s general manager for golf, was there when Woods turned pro and signed a $40 million sponsorship deal with the company. From the outset, he said, those around Woods were intent on making him more than just the best golfer of his generation.

Nike grew its golf equipment business around Woods’ persona. The company didn’t even make clubs or balls until Woods was signed as a spokesman. Getty Images”From day one, they had interest in what Tiger could be as an athlete, but also as a brand,” said Zimmerman, now the president and CEO of business operations for the St. Louis Blues. “That’s a tall order for a 21 year old coming out of a few years at Stanford. But he had been on a path toward greatness from an early age, and certainly both his dad and the people around him, they were very clear that they believed Tiger Woods could be a great brand, much in the same way that Michael Jordan had been.”

The first Nike TV commercials in 1996 to introduce Woods to viewers were “Hello, World” and “I am Tiger Woods.” Each told stories. The first was about his commitment to golf and his road to the tour. The second, his roots and connection to a new, diverse generation. Zimmerman says the intent was never to make Tiger cool above the rest but to show his respect for the game and help Nike launch its golf equipment business.

When Woods’ style and personality meshed with his wins and the acceptance of Nike’s products, the ad campaign helped catapult him into the Jordan realm.
