2/8/2010 - Spectacle rulesin the age of Gaga

In many ways, Lady Gaga's is Chanel Sunglasses a bastardization of the Madonna model. From the start of her career Madonna was a savvy pop trickster, using outrageous imagery as a distraction while smuggling ideas about religion and social politics into her music. Most of the Gaga generation, however, is interested in distraction as an end in itself. The age of Gaga actually began a decade ago, with the arrival of Britney Spears and Ms. Aguilera. Purists complained that they were fabricated - a dull gripe. More important was that they helped restore a sense of theater to pop . Lady Gaga has taken that movement to its logical end, almost removing the music altogether. She's an often great singer; that she hides that so well is one of her many tricks. And her songs are perfectly blank, mere skeletons to drape herself around.
Furthermore, the thing that Gucci Shoulder Bag most separates Lady Gaga from the bubble-gum sirens of a decade ago is that her capacity for seduction has been recontextualized. Near the end of her recent New York show she emerged onstage with sparklerlike contraptions on her chest and crotch, spitting out tiny, smoldering bits. "You tell them I burned the place!" she shouted. It was a straightforward repudiation of hypersexualized imagery. There was nowhere to touch without getting hurt. In this Lady Gaga has an unlikely analogue in Katy Perry. "California Gurls" is the first single from her new album, "Teenage Dream." Its video finds Ms. Perry frolicking in a candy fantasyland, pinup-girl style. But toward the end she's shown dancing with cupcakes on her breasts, quickly followed by a scene in which she attaches a pair of whipped cream dispensers to her bra and fires away. What it means is anyone's guess, but the license to create such absurdist, post-sexual theater feels particularly Gagaesque.
Ultimately, though, Ms. mbt sport shoes Perry is too perky to achieve Lady Gaga's heightened state of absence from her own art. Ms. Aguilera is better equipped for that task. Like Lady Gaga, Ms. Aguilera is willing to be molded - although, in the case of her wildly uneven fourth album, "Bionic," she may have found her limits. The album quickly faded. Part of the problem may have been that beneath her distressed mask is a true vocal talent that she has a difficult time suppressing.

24/3/2010 - Amid pain and devastation, Chile stands tall

Andre Vltchek, an American political analyst, writer and filmmaker, traveled Chilean cities such as Santiago, Curico, Rancagua and Constitucion to see how the country is rising above the trauma the earthquake.
 Heavy machinery is tiffany and cobreaking the remaining walls of adobe houses in the once impressive historic district of the city of Curico. Its cathedral - a national monument - is in ruins and it is said that several people died when it collapsed. There is hardly any block of houses intact in the center - dozens of buildings are gone, hundreds damaged, debris is still scattered on the ground. Nevertheless, the people of Curico seem to be calm. Women are wearing high heels and their best clothes, old couples strolling down the sidewalks, tenderly supporting each other. "Curico will not be defeated!" reads the slogan glued to windows.
Almost immediately ghdsafter the quake Chile went to work, mobilizing millions - determined and proud. The more than 1,000-kilometers long, four-lane southern highway between Santiago and Puerto Montt has been reopened again, almost all the bridges have been repaired and tolls are waived. It is obvious that Chile can cope. China was one of the first countries that offered aid, which was accepted: Beijing sent a Boeing 747 cargo plane with water purification plants, tents and other essential equipment. Cuba dispatched a team of doctors - some of the best in Latin America - which almost immediately set up a well-equipped field hospital just outside the city of Rancagua, consisting of air-conditioned tents complete with an operation theater.
 "We are working sidemens oakley sunglasses by side with our Chilean colleagues," explained Dr Carlos Peres Dias, director of the hospital. "Rancagua medical facilities were damaged and here we are, doing all we can to help. In two weeks time we treated over 1,500 patients. It is a great privilege to be here. We feel and give so much love and affection." Despite the magnitude of the quake, there is almost no damage to the capital city of Santiago. Some windows in the tall buildings cracked, one new apartment building in the Maipu neighborhood broke in half but remained standing, and Santiago Airport experienced structural damage. Several old houses in the center were ruined. However, this city with more than 5 million inhabitants almost immediately went on with its life. Most services, including those of the extensive subway system, were restored in less than one day.
 Victor Hugo de laChanel Logo Earrings Fuente, legendary director of Le Monde Diplomatique Chile explained: "No matter where one stays politically, one has to admit: Corruption in Chile is extremely low, compared to most of other parts of the world. When they build something here, it almost always stands, no matter what happens."
