They just expanded their bath collection to include even more essentials including tub mats, bath rugs , and shower curtains . I love the simple striped shower curtain with the fringed detail, which they told me was inspired by Turkish fouta details, an homage to the place where they're made. Their products are Oeko-Tex certified . Don't know what that means? That's OK, I didn't either. In short, it's a certification system that ensures textiles are eco-friendlysimilar to FEC-certification for wood. Being nosy and interested in design process and manufacturing, I asked Parachute to tell me a little bit more about their process. Yes, they make mostly white towels and bedding, which you wouldn't think was too big of a deal in terms of design and production, but you'd be surprised that sometimes the simplest designs are the most challenging. I spoke with Parachute's Creative Director, Amy Hoban, who explained that Parachute's bath essentials are part of their mission to create a comfortable home and gender-neutral products that are clean, modern and can complement any style of home or decor.

Even though her parents were initially against this, she eventually won them over when her works landed her projects with the variety television show 8TV Quickie, GrabCar The Walking Dead promo in Malaysia, and Anugerah Juara Lagu 2017. In fact, they now encourage her to get a certification to teach SFX, which she will later this year. Additionally, she’d like to bring her SFX game to another level by doing it professionally – as is the case with Asmawati and Hammada. Asmawati is even reaching for the stars by aiming for Hollywood. While it may sound grandiose, no dream is too big when you set your mind and heart on it. For a trio who can easily morph into creatures, characters, celebrities and concepts, achievement is definitely within reach. After all, success is just another “face” of life.

PETALING JAYA: Malaysia has been ranked first among four countries with the best healthcare this year, according to InternationalLiving.com. It noted that Malaysia’s medical tourism is booming, following a stronger US dollar currency, cheaper air travel and mounting healthcare costs in Western countries. Two cities, George Town in Penang and Kuala Lumpur, were named as the two main medical centres which services international airlines from around the world. The report also accredited Malaysia having some of the best-trained doctors in Asia, with the large number of them being trained in the US, Australia, or the United Kingdom. The mileage of them being able to speak English puts a feather in the country’s cap too. The report also commented that hospitals in the two cities are among Southeast Asia’s first recipients of the United Statesprestigious Joint Commission International (JCI) certification – a benchmark for healthcare service providers globally.

While I know the practice is meant to ensure quality and to prevent people from making a profit without first paying for their certification, in this instance, that doesn't apply, since these haircuts were being donated for free. What's more, those who received them were willing participants, so why is this even an issue? Is it illegal for a mother to cut her child's hair because she doesn't have a license to do so? Now, Juan Carlos may never be able to receive his license in cosmetology at all, though he says feels good about what he has done to help the homeless in his community, despite the investigation. Some of the women he donated his services to had gone years without even a trim. He gave out dozens of free haircuts to those in need because he wanted to honour his mother's memory. He did it, as he says, “Out of the kindness of my heart.

This was khadi yarn mixed with polyester and the attempt was to have the hybrid fabric still be sold as khadi. Prime Minister Morarji Desai had no problems with this, but Gandhians like Kripalani were appalled and launched a campaign to defend the name of ‘pure khadi’. It took 35 years for the government to formalise brand control of khadi. In 2013 it issued a notification that any textile sold as khadi had to have KVIC’s ‘Khadi Markcertification. The immediate provocation seems to have been reports of powerloom cloth being sold as khadi, but KVIC now seems in no hurry to grant this certification. Fabindia has apparently been trying for a while to get its products properly certified, but KVIC has rejected its requests. This suggests that the usual narrative of a powerful corporation taking advantage of a defenceless Indian product may not quite hold.

Speaking on the five seater CNM-5 designed by NAL, Vardhan said fabrication has been done by Mahindra and it has already completed 12 flights. "Mahindra, in collaboration with the laboratory, was doing it in Australia, but now Mahindra has agreed to bring it back to India. In the next couple of months we will go ahead and get the certification approved from the relevant authorities. "We expect in another 18 months from now production of CNM-15 will start," he said, adding it would be like an airtaxi. Vardhan said there was also a plan to give thrust to 70 seater plane. In the initial stage there were some difficulties, but now it is also being seriously considered. "That process has also started. The new civil aviation policy there has been emphasising on regional connectivity. This new thrust that we want to build in the future will certainly help the whole concept," the Union Minister added.

India’s air force, which has committed to purchasing 15 of the Saras planes, needs to test the aircraft before certifications and sale to commercial airlines, Jadhav said. The process of getting full certification could take as long as three years, he said. Delays in production of new aircraft is common across the world, even with established companies like Boeing Co. and Airbus SE. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. announced a fifth delay last month in delivering Japan’s first locally made passenger jet to its launch customer, while China’s Advanced Regional Jet ARJ21 took 13 years to design, build and bring to market. India’s Saras program was conceived about 29 years ago. A separate plan to build a bigger, 50-70 seat commercial aircraft is stuck pending government funding, Jadhav said. Feasibility study for the project, which would need a private party to manufacture, has been done and the proposal has been with the government since 2013, Jadhav said.

Photography by Rafael Martin Story by John Campion So, like all things, for some bizarro reason, Lancias just come my way. I was talking to dealer Mike Sheehan and the subject came up that I've got an 037 and he wanted to know what I thought of the Beta Montecarlo, which is a very similar car except that the Beta’s an endurance car and the 037 is an out-and-out Group B monster. The endurance car, the one pictured here, came before and was racing in 1980/81, before the more well-known 037 rally car. So I tell Mike that I’ve always liked the Beta Montecarlos. How could I not? It’s a 1.4259 liter engine, 1425cc, 4 cylinder, big turbo. K-Sport had one in Italy, and the next thing I know we put a deal together with them and it's in a nutty red and white sort of zebra livery. This is chassis 1009; we wanted to make sure we got FIA papers on the car, and then I got the certification from Abarth Classiche following that.

To the credit of the Colleges that I attended they are highly regarded institutions and are as certified as the next to deliver education, it was someones personal opinion but it does effect hiring decisions. This part of your transition is one where you want to start early in identifying which college, which degree and getting started, if not finished prior to transition. Attending College can be very time consuming so you will need the full support of your family in the process to be the best student possible. "Education is the most powerful weapon which can be used to change the world." - Nelson Mandela Certifications are other aspects that are becoming more and more important in different industries. I can tell you from an information technology industry that there are hundreds of certifications that can be obtained. The first step is to again identify your industry and do some research on what the most likely needed certification is based on the positions you would be applying for.

c. The trojan, once installed, shall not lower the security level of the device where it has been activated d. Once the investigation has finished, the trojan must be uninstalled or, otherwise, detailed instruction on how to self-remove it must be provided. e. Trojan production and uses must be traceable by establishing a National Trojan Registry with the fingerprint of each version of the software being produced and deployed. f. The trojans must be certified, with a yearly renewal of the certification, to ensure compliance with the law and technical regulation issued by the ministry. g. Extracted data must be stored in the prosecutor’s servers and must be protected from third-party access with encryption. h. Trojans have to be directly operated by police, and not by private contractors. One would ask: how would that impact companies that develop and sell such kind of trojans? Should the proposal become a law, they would need to update their software to comply with the new technical regulations and they would have to deposit their source code to the competent authority, in order to keep their business going on in Italy (and in any other country that adopted a similar regulatory framework).

TASS The European Union’s market is important, but very complicated, according to Russia’s First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov Russia’s First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov considers it necessary for Russia to target exports beyond European Union (EU) and focus on Iran, Vietnam and China. We should first of all focus on friendly markets, which are currently China, Vietnam and Iran. It is necessary to do everything for those laboratories [on certification of Russian products for exports TASS] to proceed, everything to promote those products. The European Union’s market is as important, it is a huge market and very important to us, but very complicated, he said. According to Shuvalov, the cooperation with OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) countries via all work groups and committees is the highest priority for Russia, despite the fact that Moscow is not negotiating its entry to the organization.
