Munich delays switch to Linux

Tuesday, September 6, 2005  The German city of Munich has delayed the start of its planed migration to Linux till 2006. The migration was originally due to start this year, three years after the decision to migrate to Linux was made. Peter Hofmann, the project leader of the migration said the delay was because the “pilot was more important than we first thought and should last longer.” Once the pilot is completed all the departments will eventually be migrated to Linux and OpenOffice.org.

On May 28, 2003 Germany’s third-largest city, voted to move to open source software. Munich made the decision to switch after Microsoft discontinued support for their current OS, Windows NT 4. While Suse was very involved in the early phases, Debian was ultimately selected to replace Windows on 14,000 desktops. The migration is estimated to cost between 30 and 34 million euros, once complete would affect approximately 16,000 users.

The first department to migrate to Linux and OpenOffice.org will be the office of the Lord Mayor planed for the middle of 2006, though not all of the department’s computers will be immediately migrated. Peter Hofmann said “Some departments will start with OpenOffice on Windows, others will start with OpenOffice on Linux,” he said. “It depends on their infrastructure, for example, if a department has a small number of simple [Office] macros and templates but a large number of complex applications, it is easier to do OpenOffice on Windows first.”

Sydney’s ‘Angel of The Gap’ dies after decades rescuing the suicidal

Monday, May 14, 2012 

Australian man Don Ritchie, dubbed the “Angel of The Gap”, has died. He earned his nickname after spending decades talking people out of jumping from The Gap, a cliff famed as a suicide spot beside his house in Watsons Bay, Sydney.

Credited with at least 160 rescues, though his family suggest the true figure is 500, reports carry conflicting values of Ritchie’s age; he was in his mid eighties. He moved to a house beside The Gap in 1964 and lived there the rest of his life, quickly earning his first award after tackling a man who was about to jump. At first he held back would-be jumpers whilst his wife summoned help, but then took to approaching them with his palms out and saying simply “Is there something I could do to help you?”

Ritchie had no relevant formal training, but he said last year to “Never be afraid to speak to those who you feel are in need. Always remember the power of the simple smile, a helping hand, a listening ear and a kind word.” According to his daughter, Sue Ritchie Bereny, “that was all that was often needed to turn people around, and he would say not to underestimate the power of a kind word and a smile.” He would then “bring people back to our place for a cup of tea and breakfast.”

Rewarded last year with a Local Hero Award from the National Australia Day Council, Ritchie explained “You couldn’t just sit here and watch them. I mean, I couldn’t. So I would go out and try and help them.” He and his wife Monica were named Citizens of the Year by Woollahra Council in 2010.

Ritchie often clutched at those who jumped in an effort to hold them back. He recently described to The Sydney Morning Herald one nineteen-year-old who was friends with Ritchie’s grandchildren; “He said ‘no’ and stepped straight off the side. His hat blew up and I caught it in my hand.” Much of his time was spent watching the cliff for those in distress; Bereny noted his “sensitivity, he could read some people needed help.”

Ritchie’s “courage delivered small miracles,” said Cr Susan Wynne, Mayor of Woollahra. National Australia Day Council’s interim head Tam Johnston has issued a statement saying “Don’s story touched the hearts of all Australians and challenged each of us to rethink what it means to be a good neighbour… Don was a true gentleman with a smile that could light up the room.” Local politician Malcolm Turnbull, who united with Ritchie and mental health workers to demand suicide prevention measures at The Gap, said “His work lives on forever not just in the lives of those he saved but in his heroism and example of public service.”

Diane Gaddin, whose daughter killed herself at The Gap and who works to prevent suicide, called him “a beacon and inspiration to not only us in Australia but the world because it takes courage, bravery, tenacity… he was a gentle, persuasive man who offered them hope with warm, embracing words.” She describes the former life insurance salesman, who also served in the navy, as saying “I was a salesman for most of my life, and I sold them life.” She said he advised those faced with the suicidal to “Smile. Be friendly and say can I help you in some way.”

Ritchie died on Sunday local time at St Vincent’s Hospital, with his wife, three daughters, and four grandchildren by his side.

Australian immigration amendments may have difficulty passing in the Senate

Friday, August 11, 2006 

The Howard government’s proposed amendments to immigration laws to allow offshore processing may face a difficult passage through the Australian Senate with four coalition senators refusing to state whether or not they will support the amendments. The Migration Amendment (Designated Unauthorised Arrivals) Bill passed in the House of Representatives on Thursday, despite three coalition MPs crossing the floor to vote against the government.

On Thursday, Petro Georgiou (Kooyong, Liberal), Russell Broadbent (McMillan, Liberal) and Judi Moylan (Pearce, Liberal) crossed the floor to vote with the opposition against the government’s proposed reforms. Two other coalition MPs abstained from the vote. The legislation still passed, due to the coalition’s commanding majority in Australia’s lower house.

In the Senate, where the government has a one seat majority, it may be difficult for the legislation to pass with coalition senators Judith Troeth (Victoria, Liberal), Marise Payne (New South Wales, Liberal), Russell Trood (Queensland, Liberal) and Barnaby Joyce (Queensland, National) refusing to indicate which way they will be voting when the legislation comes before the senate on Monday or Tuesday.

The government now needs all of these senators to vote for this bill because Steve Fielding from the Family First Party has now officially announced that he will vote aganist this bill because he disagrees with sending asylum seekers to Nauru instead of being processed in Australia

Australia’s major opposition party, the Australian Labor Party has urged coalition senators to follow the lead of their lower house counterparts and defeat the bill. “I do hope that in the Senate others on the Coalition, who share that view, will ensure its defeat,” said Kim Beazley, leader of the opposition.

Learn How To Bustle A Bridal Gown

By Bridget Mora

Sure the train of your wedding gown is gorgeous, but it will be pretty hard to dance with it trailing behind you all through the reception. After the formal photographs are done, it is time to bustle your gown to get it off the floor and out of your way. Bustling is not as easy as it may seem, though, so first you will have to learn how to bustle your bridal gown.

The shape of the bustle will largely depend on the shape and length of your train. The longer the train, the fuller the bustle. Some trains will look best bustled to the outside, whereas others work best as a French bustle, which is done on the inside. Your seamstress will create the bustle as part of your alterations. Since the bride will not be able to tie up her own dress, it is critical to bring someone to the final fitting to get lessons. Believe me, I speak from experience when I say that trying to figure out a bustle system without lessons is very hard, even for a wedding professional! Normally the mother of the bride or maid of honor is in charge of this task.

The simplest way to tie up a gown is a single tie on the outside, usually near the waistline of the gown or for very short trains, around the knees. This tends to be the most practical when the fabric to be bustled is lightweight, such as tulle or a lace overlay. A heavy satin would tear out a single tie. Since the tie up will be visible, make sure that it is beautiful. For instance, a small toggle and loop of pearls is lovely when you are wearing pearl earrings. A fabric covered button at the waist with a loop on the skirt is also commonly used, although it is not as pretty, unless the gown has more buttons down the back.

What about that loop of cord or ribbon sewn onto the inside edge of my gown’s train, you may wonder? Isn’t that for bustling, either on the skirt of the wedding dress or to wear over my wrist? No, it is actually something that bridal gown manufacturers sew in to help the trains of gowns be looped up over hangers to get them off the floor. They are definitely not for bustling, and in fact, you should cut it out before your wedding, as it does not look pretty if it drags behind your gown down the aisle (the same goes for the hanging straps in the bodice, by the way: cut them out!).

The French bustle is a very elegant style which works well with any gown of at least an A-line fullness (and some slimmer gowns as well). The general idea is that a series of ties is attached in two rows inside the bridal gown. One is towards the bottom of the train, and the other row is inside the skirt, around knee height. When it is time to bustle the gown, the lower set is tied to the upper set of ribbons, which pulls the train up and under. When all is said and done, the remaining hem of the train should line up with the rest of the hemline of the gown, just off the floor.

The only trick to the French bustle is matching up the right pairs of ties. It sounds easy, but under a big wedding gown, it can get tricky. In a gown with a small train, you might only have three pairs of ties, but a fuller gown might require a dozen, making it very confusing. Some bridal salons will write numbers on the pairs to match them, but there is an even more elegant solution. Simply stitch something tiny and pretty to the end of each ribbon (organza ribbons hold very well and are so much prettier than shoelace material), so that the sets are easily found. Tiny bows, itty-bitty fabric flowers, or even a pearl or a crystal (so cute to coordinate with your pearl earrings!) will all work wonderfully and make the inside of your gown just as pretty as the outside. The best bustles are not merely utilitarian, but add to the overall loveliness of the bridal gown. With your train under control, you will be ready to dance the night away!

Leading luxury businesses to form a joint venture

Tuesday, March 6, 2007 

Richemont and Polo Ralph Lauren decided to join their skills and rich experience in order to form a joint venture, the name of which is Polo Ralph Lauren Watch and Jewelry Company, S.A.R.L. The representatives of the global luxury business decided to unite their efforts in order to develop luxury timepieces and fine jewelry items.

After the new products are manufactured, they will be distributed through Ralph Lauren boutiques and independent retailers of jewelery items and luxury timepieces. The first jointly developed products are to appear in the fall of the following year.

Richemont and Polo Ralph Lauren will equally share 50 percent of the new joint venture. The partners hope for long-term cooperation. The union will be a completely new experience for both Richemont, which has never cooperated with a luxury fashion designer before, and Polo Ralph Lauren, which, until the present day, has not maintained any links with the precious jewelry and luxury watch businesses.

Ralph Lauren, holding the post of Polo Ralph Lauren’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer , believes that the company’s experience in the area of designing and marketing luxury lifestyle products will blend with Richemont’s experience on a global scale.

Johann Rupert, owning the position of Richemont’s Executive Chairman counts on Ralph Lauren’s reputation and image based upon distinctive taste, style and attention to detail. He hopes that the newly formed joint venture will benefit from these factors, as well Richemont’s expertise in the area of jewelry and watches.
