Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2012 Men’s Collection

by Accidental Bear
 Burberry for me is a taste  I acquired as I have aged gracefully (shush), kind of like brussels sprouts. I wouldn’t touch them and had a disdained dislike for them when I was younger, but now I really enjoy quality, organically grown brussels sprouts and appreciate their distinct flavor, much like the collection of Burberry.

Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2012 Men's Collection

Taking a distinct 60s direction in the design approach, the collection features lots of oversized work wear trench coats, oversized double breasted heritage trench coats, fishtail and storm parkas and a special range of knitwear. Patterns are not only placed on jackets and knitwear, but also on shirts and even the eye catching range of cork soled moccasins. Hand crafted natural wood toggles, weathered metal buttons and natural horn buttons make an appearance as well, only adding to the detailed range presented for next season. The color range is also very special, and is in line with the 60s look and inspiration. (via Selectism)

The glitter attack was carried out by Minneapolis-based LGBT rights activist Rachel E.B. Lang. Lang rushed toward the stage as Bachmann was exiting and shouted, “You can run, but you can’t hide,” as she was removed by members of the event’s security staff. READ MORE

Lets Celebrate the Farmers Tan & Not get Cancer at the Same Time: New Sun Screen Regulations

by Accidental Bear

New Screen regulations announce that there is no such thing as sun block or water proof

Parsing The Details Of New Sunscreen Regulations

via NPR.org

The federal Food and Drug Administration is ordering sunscreen manufacturers to change the way they label their products to prohibit the use of certain marketing terms. The rules are also designed to clear up confusion about the meaning of “sun protection factor,” or SPF, and other terms like “waterproof.”

SPF measures a sunscreen’s ability to prevent sunburn, which is caused by ultraviolet B (UVB) light. Scientists now also know that ultraviolet A (UVA) is a major cause of aging and also contributes to skin cancer. But SPF labels on sunscreen do not currently address the risks of UVA light.

“Consumers might have a misinterpretation, not realizing that they’re not being fully protected,” says Michael Hansen, a senior scientist at Consumers Union, a group that has been pushing the FDA for years to require better sunscreen labels.

The new FDA rule should help by requiring any sunscreen that calls itself “broad spectrum” to protect against both UVB and UVA. Some people who work regularly in the sun think that’s a good idea.

“I already have some wrinkles on my forehead from doing six summers of this,” says Mohican pool manager Ellen Hearle, age 21, outside Washington, D.C.

Hearle also says she would like a sunscreen that did not wash off in the pool.

“I definitely need something that’s waterproof, because we’re going in the water a lot,” she says.

 

Reading The Labels

The FDA says there’s no such thing as a waterproof sunscreen. They all wash off in the pool, or with sweat. Starting next summer, the best a label will be able to claim is that a sunscreen is water resistant.

That leaves the question of how to avoid cancer-causing rays while manufacturers retool sunscreens and labels. David Leffell, professor of dermatology at Yale University, has a few recommendations for this summer.

“No. 1, make sure that your sunscreen has an SPF of 30,” Leffell says.

No. 2 on Leffell’s list: “Make sure that it says broad spectrum,” protecting against both UVA and UVB. For UVA, Leffell says to look for products that contain zinc oxide or avobenzone.
