Jewellery: Not Just A Girl’s Best Friend

It has always been deemed as a fashion-conscious world for females, but the same is also increasingly becoming the case for men. There is now a genuine interest from a male perspective in fashion, and equally there is no shame in admitting this, particularly as men also have an interest in looking their best. The world of men’s fashion is changing, and is now adding more diversity to men’s appearance through the use of jewellery. For many years it was deemed ‘cool’ to wear a slap bracelet, particularly if you were a male during those school days. However, as time has progressed, the type of jewellery men have added to their appearance has also changed.

There are now a growing number of men wearing earrings of all types, for example. There are a few main types of jewellery that are particularly popular with men; including wrist-wear such as bead and studded bracelets and bangles. There are also many types of fashionable rings available, ensuring that there are other purposes for wearing a ring other than being spoken for. Cuff-links are becoming ever more popular, and such are normally available in a wide array of various shapes and patterns, whilst the style of cuff-links you choose will normally complement your personal fashion sense and are no longer reserved for the ’smart’ look. Earrings are perhaps still quite common and have been for many years, being available in various styles such as studs and also plugs, with the latter considered intriguing for those individuals who would like to achieve a punk image.

Other accessories of jewelleries include charm pins and badges, which act as great additions to clothing and bags whilst chain wallets can combine a bit of fashion with security. There are also many forms of necklaces to choose from; from simple, handcrafted pendants to elaborate designer-branded necklaces, which can look very stylish particularly when wearing an open shirt or polo t-shirt. Men’s jewellery is not there only for the purpose of making a fashion statement, but can act as the perfect present for any individual.

While it might have began in an old fashion style in the form of pocket watches, men’s jewellery has since evolved to become more fashionable, both for the young and old generations. For both sexes, this fashion-conscious world is forever evolving, but the type of jewellery you choose should complement the style you aim to achieve and the clothes you wear to achieve it. Whether it is a casual look, a smart, business attire or formal dress wear, there is a diverse range of men’s jewellery to choose from which will complement every style.

Sidr leaves millions homeless in Bangladesh

Up to 10 000 people are dead and millions homeless and hungry in cyclone-hit Bangladesh, officials said on Sunday, as the army and aid workers battled to reach the country’s devastated coast.

Three days after Cyclone Sidr tore into one of the world’s poorest nations from the Bay of Bengal, rescue workers were still fighting their way through a landscape of flattened villages and traumatised crowds.

Survivors on the isolated southern coast, where many areas were still out of reach for aid convoys, warned they would soon die unless help arrived.

“I lost six of my family members in the cyclone. I am afraid that the rest of us will die of hunger. We are without food and water for the last few days,” said a 55-year-old farmer, Sattar Gazi.

Most of the deaths were caused by the tidal wave which engulfed coastal villages, as well as flying debris and falling trees that crushed flimsy bamboo and tin homes - all that most people in Bangladesh can afford.

A stunned 25-year-old woman, Jahanara, recounted how she managed to cling to a tree as the storm ripped away everything around her, including her husband, two sons and mother, and even the clothes on her back.

“The cyclone has inflicted an ecological disaster,” said Shanti Ranjan Das of the government’s livestock department.

The vast mangrove forest, listed as a World Heritage Site by the UN cultural organisation Unesco, is a natural tide barrier crucial to the long-term survival of coastal communities.


6 Strategies for Successful Leadership

Use these strategies to lead your organization to success:

  1. Make your expectations clearly known. Never assume that people know what behavior and results you expect of them.
  2. Put people into jobs where they are most likely to meet their own needs as well as those of the organization.
  3. Use meetings to strengthen the team. Encourage participation and idea sharing. Keep the group focused on its goals.
  4. Don’t promise — deliver.
  5. Reward cooperation and hard work. Don’t take good performance for granted. Reward it and you can expect to see a lot more of it.
  6. Do the little things that show others you value them as individuals. People want to feel important.
