Minivan Window Treatments

Many van cleef and arpels necklace copy families like minivans because they can fit the whole family comfortably. They often have comfort features like extra cup holders, reclining seats, replica van cleef jewelry floor storage and televisions screens that fold down from the ceiling.

However, a problem with imitation van cleef and arpels necklace some minivans is sun glare. Most back windows in minivans don't have sun visors like the front windshield. Sun glare can quickly heat up the back of your vehicle or make it impossible to enjoy the scenery. The solution comes in the form of several window treatments.

The most common reason people use minivan window treatments is to protect their children from the sun. For children 4 years old and older, the solution may come in the form of pull down shades. These shades come in a long plastic box with suction cups on the back to secure the shade to the window. The children can then pull the shade down from the plastic box when they need it and put it up when they don't. Many of these shades are also adjustable, allowing children to pull the shade down completely or part of the way. Many pull down shades come themed specifically for kids.

As the sun rose on Friday morning, the lorry could still be seen where it finally came to a halt, its windscreen peppered with bullet holes. Bouhlel's apartment was raided by police later on Friday.

Just hours before the attack, Mr Estrosi had sent a letter to Franois Hollande, the French president, warning that national police officers were under equipped and exhausted after months working van cleef necklaces knock off overtime in a state of emergency.

Nice is considered a town under particular terrorist threat, notably due to a large contingent of residents who have left to fight in Syria.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said a Briton is believed to be among the scores injured. The US state department confirmed two American citizens were killed in the attack, Sean Copeland, 51 and his son Brodie, 11 from Austin, Texas.

Jersey City mayor purchases house in the Heights PHOTOS

JERSEY CITY Mayor Steve Fulop is moving on up, literally.

Fulop, 38, is relocating three miles north with his girlfriend from a Downtown apartment on Van Vorst Street to a one family home on a quiet, one way street in the Jersey City Heights.

Fulop said he closes on the house, located at 360 Ogden Ave., about a block north of Riverview Park, in two weeks. He'll be the second mayor in a row to live in the Heights.

"I'm excited to be a Heights resident," he told fake van cleef and arpels necklace The Jersey Journal today, adding about the house, "I fell in love with it."

Real estate site Zillow puts the three bedroom home's price tag at $739,000, and says it has three decks with van cleef necklaces copy "direct New York City views." It last sold in 2012 for $415,000. Fulop's tax bill will be about $7,700.

Residents of the area describe it as quiet and family friendly. Jim Kanze, 67, who will live across the street from the mayor, called Ogden Avenue "the jewel of the Heights." Kanze already has at least one complaint he may pass along once Fulop settles in.

"Maybe he can have people slow down," he said. "That speed bump there doesn't help very much."

Fulop's impending move to the city's northern most neighborhood is a reversal from a previous pledge to buy a house in Bergen Lafayette, a southeastern Jersey City neighborhood that has pockets of deep poverty and violent crime.

It's also an area where Fulop struggles politically his rival in the 2013 mayoral race, former Mayor Jerramiah replica van cleef jewelry Healy, won about double Fulop's vote total in some Bergen Lafayette voting districts. Of the city's six wards, Fulop lost only Ward F, largely comprising Bergen Lafayette, by a narrow margin to Healy.

After he was elected mayor, Fulop said moving to Bergen Lafayette would "send a strong signal."

"I want to have a commitment to the area beyond just saying it," he said then.

Today, Fulop said he intended to move to Monitor or Whiton streets, but he lost bidding wars on houses there.

"I think the goal was ultimately to buy a house in Jersey City and . I found a specific house I love," he said.

The median income in that area of the Heights is $61,662, versus $50,000 around Whiton and Monitor streets, the figures show. The mayor's new neighborhood is 39 percent white and 7 percent black, versus 30 percent white and 36 percent black near Whiton and Monitor streets.

million upgrade set for Cook Street in Saanich

A nearly $5 million upgrade to a section of Cook Street in Saanich will close the busy road to general traffic, starting early next week until May 2015.

"The road will be upgraded with wider sidewalks and bike lanes," said Ivan Leung, from the District of Saanich transportation department.

Summer is a busy time for road construction and traffic delays, like the water main replacement at Cedar Hill Road and McKenzie Avenue this week that had vehicles backed up all day Tuesday.

Next week, Cook Street will be closed to general traffic from Maplewood Avenue to imitation van cleef pendant Quadra Street. Residents will be able to use the road, as will patrons of the local businesses, which include a medical clinic, Bank of Montreal and Thrifty Foods.

"Typically, with road projects like this, there is traffic control and local access," said Leung, who noted nearby Cloverdale Elementary School will also be accessible.

Leung said the project will go beyond fake van cleef arpels necklace new asphalt and improving the esthetic of the street. The sidewalks and bike lanes on both sides will make it more user friendly, and underground infrastructure, including a water main, will also be installed.

Brunnell Construction was awarded the $4.8 million project and will manage traffic in the area.

"We expect drivers and commuters to take different routes," Leung said.

The city has several other road projects underway, as is typical at this time of year, including repaving the Quadra Street and Tolmie Avenue intersection and increasing accessibility to sidewalks, safety upgrades to Catherine Street at Bay and Dundas that are partially funded by ICBC, upgrades to the Princess Avenue crosswalk and repaving of Cook Street from Caledonia to Queens fake van cleef and arpels necklace Avenue, and a new intersection at Harbour and Esquimalt, while the Johnson Street bridge is being built. All projects include lane reductions and wrap up in mid September or early October.

Jill Zarin Discusses Her Firing From

For four seasons of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of New York City," socialite Jill Zarin brought in ratings with her outspoken nature and ongoing feud with her former best friend, Bethenny Frankel. Millions tuned in to watch the women each week, but in 2011 just weeks before the show's fifth season was to begin filming Bravo abruptly fired Zarin.

While some were shocked by the decision, Zarin recently told "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" that her firing wasn't a surprise to her at all.

"This is what van cleef and arpels necklaces replica nobody knows," Zarin begins. "This is really the truth: One night. I think I took a sleeping pill and I typed out an email to my ['Real Housewives'] producer and three out of the five housewives. I said, 'I'm leaving the show. I want to leave on a high. I'm in a good place right now.'"

She didn't include the network, Bravo, on the email. "I kind of got cold feet the next day, and I said, 'Ah, that was stupid, I shouldn't have sent that email out,'" she says. "So, when I van cleef and arpels necklace knock off got the phone call from my production company, I knew."

What Zarin doesn't know is exactly why she was fired. "Nobody will tell me the true answer," she says. "At the time, I was told that they thought the show had gone so dark that it couldn't recover and that they needed van cleef & arpels necklace knock off to change the cast. I don't think the fans agreed."

Still, Zarin is grateful for the time she had on "Real Housewives." "I was given the opportunity of a lifetime. Not everyone wants that opportunity, but a girl like me? With a mouth like mine? It's a dream come true," she says.

As for the show's endless supply of drama, Zarin says that wasn't so bad either. "I have to admit, I liked the drama," she confesses. "I really did. I kind of liked it. I liked the fighting and the making up. Let's be honest, I was perfectly suited for the show."

In the video below, Zarin joins OWN executive producers Julie Simpson and Jill Van Lokeren on HuffPost Live and shares her feelings about other "Housewives" today.

Massenet's 'Don Quichotte'

Great literature has always been a rich source of inspiration for composers, though the process has taken longer in some cases than others and the results have often been mixed, at best.

There's Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, for example. It didn't turn up in the opera house until 200 years or so after it was written, and another century went by before Gounod wrote the first operatic version of the tragedy that's still around today.

On the other side of the coin there's Don Quixote, by Manuel de Cervantes, which started showing up in music almost immediately, at least by historical standards.

Regarded by many as the first true novel ever written, Don Quixote was published in two parts early in the 1600s. The first opera based on the book turned up later that same century, along with some incidental music by Henry Purcell, to accompany a dramatic version of the story. Later there were more operas, several ballets and a widely played tone poem by Richard Strauss.

Still, when it comes to music, Cervantes does share something with Shakespeare: As with Shakespeare's plays, successful operas based on Don Quixote have been few and far between. The first one, written in 1690, was by a composer named Johann Frtsch whose name isn't exactly a household word. Others, also obscure, were written by Giovanni Paisiello and Saverio Mercadante. But there was one composer, Jules Massenet, for whom Don Quixote proved fertile ground.

Massenet's Don Quichotte may stand a rung or two below his better known operas, such as Manon and Werther, yet there is plenty to recommend it. Like Verdi's Shakespeare based Falstaff, Massenet's opera seems rooted more in its iconic title character than in any single work of literature. And the two operas have more than that in common. Both were written late in their composers' lives and both feature lead characters whose stories find them ridiculed more than often than admired. But Verdi and Massenet, like Shakespeare and Cervantes, tinged the seeming buffoonery of those characters with a touching, world weary wisdom a resigned insight that lets them teach the younger people around them a few sad, but vital lessons.

On World of Opera, host Lisa Simeone presents a new production of Massenet's Don Quichotte from one of Europe's leading theaters, La Monnaie in Brussels. The stars include Belgian bass Jose Van Dam in the title role, with mezzo soprano Silvia Tro Santaf as Dulcinea and baritone Werner Van Mechelen as Sancho Panza.

See the previous edition of World of Opera or the full archive.

Massenet's opera is in five acts, and begins in a town square in Spain. Four young men are there, all seeking the romantic attentions of one woman, the locale femme fatale Dulcinea. But she's not interested in any of them, and sings about the troubles of being 20 years old, beautiful and in search of a spark she doesn't quite understand.

Don Quixote, the famous knight errant, arrives with his faithful companion Sancho Panza. Quixote is wearing his familiar battered armor, and the townspeople quickly gather round. When he tells Sancho Panza to give everyone alms, Sancho wonders aloud where their dinner will come from. One of Dulcinea's suitors, Juan, ridicules the aging Quixote while another, Rodriquez, seems to admire him.

When everyone leaves, Quixote begins to serenade Dulcinea. Juan hears him and interrupts, but the Don insists on finishing his song, and swords are drawn. Dulcinea appears on her balcony and intervenes. She sends Juan away, and teases Quixote for his hot headedness.

He tells Dulcinea that he loves her and would have proved it by killing Juan. She seems both touched and amused. Murder would be going a bit too far, she says. But there is something he can do to prove his feelings. She says bandits have stolen her favorite pearl necklace and she wants Don Quixote to get it back. He promptly agrees to the challenge. But for now, as night falls and everyone else goes home, he stands by her door, keeping watch.

In ACT TWO, Quixote and Sancho are in the countryside, riding through a thick, morning mist. The Don is trying to compose a song about Dulcinea, while Sancho is tired and hungry, and expresses a low opinion of all women.

As the mist begins to clear, windmills appear in the distance. Quixote, always a bit loopy, mistakes them for menacing giants, blocking the way. Over Sancho's objections, he spurs his scrawny horse, Rocinante, into a charge. Sancho follows behind on his donkey, and finds Don Quixote whirling through the air, caught on one of the windmill's sails.

ACT THREE begins at sunset. As Quixote searches the ground for tracks, Sancho falls asleep. Before long, Quixote also dozes off. They're both jolted awake when the thieves they've been hunting arrive on horseback. Sancho is terrified as the bandits approach. So the Don sends him into the woods, to hide.

When Quixote confronts the villains, calling them worthless knaves, he's ridiculed and badly van cleef and arpels bracelet imitation beaten. Then, as they're about to deal the fatal blow, Quixote begins a fervent prayer, asking god to receive his faithful soul. His sincerity moves the bandits' leader who wants to know just who Quixote thinks he is. The Don describes himself as a knight errant who wanders the world righting wrongs, comforting mourners and aiding the oppressed.

The bandit leader finds himself oddly impressed, and asks Quixote what he wants. Quixote says he's come to retrieve Dulcinea's stolen necklace. Unexpectedly, the leader gives it to him, and the villains all ask for Quixote's blessing.

In ACT FOUR Quixote and Sancho, necklace in hand, are ready to make what Quixote hopes will be a triumphant return. Dulcinea is at home, hosting a party. Her four persistent suitors are all there and she's still resisting them. She's looking for a love that's "unexpected and sublime." And none of them, she says, is up to it. In fact, she tells all four that she simply finds them boring.

Sancho Panza arrives, insisting that the doorman announce Quixote with his full and official title: "Don Quixote of La Mancha, Baron, and Knight of the Long Countenance." Quixote promises Sancho a future of untold riches maybe even his own island. It's a world where anything can happen. After all, Quixote is about to marry Dulcinea.

As the two enter the house, everyone is surprised to find Quixote intact and uninjured. Dulcinea is even more surprised when he actually produces the van cleef and arpels necklace replica necklace she sent him to retrieve. Glowing with confidence, Don Quixote promptly proposes marriage and she just as promptly turns him down. She's touched by his love, but says she's just not the marrying type.

Dulcinea's suitors, along with the rest of the guests, ridicule Quixote as a silly old fool. Sancho Panza comes to the Don's defense. In a moving aria, he praises Quixote's goodness and compassion, and his simple, dreamy spirit. Then he embraces the Don, and quietly leads him away.

ACT FIVE begins with Sancho and Quixote van cleef alhambra necklace replica together in the forest, on a high mountain pass. Sancho builds a fire, hoping to warm what he calls his master's "great heart." But Quixote says he's reached the end. He's dying. He comforts Sancho, saying he can still have the peaceful island he was promised it's a world of dreams, and all he has to do is imagine it.

Museum for Contemporary Art in North Miami

While van Gogh was a patient at an asylum in Saint Rmy, France, a year before his suicide in 1890, he produced a colorful landscape, "The Wheat Field Behind St. Paul's Hospital." That painting is said to be the first van Gogh to enter a museum.

Now it is coming to the United States for the first time when it goes on view at the Neue Galerie in Manhattan as part of "Van Gogh and Expressionism," an exhibition opening on Thursday.

With its brilliant yellows and blues, this work is a prime example of what the exhibition is about: exploring the influence of van Gogh on German and Austrian Expressionism. The show, on view through July 2, will include 80 paintings and drawings. Fourteen works are from the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam; the rest are loans from public and private collections around the world, including the Neue Galerie.

"Historically, this is a very important and moving painting," said Jill Lloyd, the London based curator and expert on Expressionism who has organized the exhibition in conjunction with the Van Gogh Museum. "It shows van cleef and arpels white gold alhambra necklace imitation how crucial German museums and German collectors were in making van Gogh's work known and eventually appreciated around the world."

Continue reading the main story

"The Wheat Field Behind St. Paul's Hospital" inspired many of the German van cleef alhambra necklace fake Expressionists who visited Mr. Osthaus's home and museum. Emil Nolde was so influenced by the painting and by other van Gogh works that entered the museum's collection later that from 1905 to 1907 he made a series of paintings, including one of a wheat field that Ms. Lloyd said was "close in spirit and color" to van Gogh's. Other Expressionists, like Max Pechstein and Alexej von Jawlensky, also painted wheat fields.

Incorporating the artist's signature crosshatched strokes and swirls, "The Wheat Field Behind St. Paul's Hospital" also features a lone reaper. "Because he experienced life in such an extreme way," Ms. Lloyd said, "he also must have seen death over his shoulder."

A SPRING THAT RESONATES

Passersby in the vicinity of Madison Square Park that 6.2 acre swath of green space between Madison and Fifth Avenues, from 23rd to 26th Street will soon hear more than the hum of city traffic. Bill Fontana, the San Francisco based sound artist, has created "Panoramic Echoes," a musical composition based on layers of environmental sounds.

Debbie Landau, executive director of Madison Square Park Conservancy, a group of neighborhood residents and business leaders who oversee the park and its art projects, said she wanted to do something this season that would go beyond just installing sculpture in the park, as the conservancy has done in recent years. The sound composition, which will be heard from Wednesday, the first day of spring, through May 1, "is a way to involve the neighborhood and make spring come early," she added. LONDON MIAMI SHARE

Now that museums have been pooling their resources and buying works together for several years, donors are also beginning to see the advantages of having museums share their donations. The Miami collectors Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz recently made a joint gift of two contemporary works to the Tate in London and the Museum for Contemporary Art in North Miami. They are "No Ghost Just a Shell" (1999 2002), a multimedia project by the French artists Pierre Huyghe and Philippe Parreno in collaboration with 15 other artists; and "Zero Hero," a multimedia van cleef gold necklace copy installation by the German artist John Bock that was originally shown at the 2005 Venice Biennale. Then they asked the other 15 artists, including Rirkit Tiravanija, Liam Gillick, Dominique Gonzalez Foerster and Angela Bulloch, to take this character and create a series of multimedia works. While the individual projects by the different artists are owned by various collectors and institutions, the Tate and the North Miami museum now hold the only complete version outside of the Van Abbemuseum in the Netherlands.

"Zero Hero" is Mr. Bock's interpretation of the life of Kaspar Hauser, a teenage boy who mysteriously appeared without memory or speech on the streets of Nuremberg in 1828.

Meet the south beauty romancing Akshay Kumar

Trisha Krishnan rocked the film industry down south. Now she is set to do the same with her upcoming film, Khatta Meetha starring Akshay Kumar and directed by Priyadarshan.

The actress to Nithya Ramani about the film, her move to Bollywood, her passions and much more. Excerpts:

The idea of doing a Hindi film has been cropping up for the past seven and a half years since Priyan sir launched me in films. have been in talks but nothing materialised. I was busy doing films in two languages down south. But I realized monotony was creeping in and it was time that I tried my hand at something new.

It was magical; I got a call at the right time. Priyan sir called up and said he was doing a film with Akshay Kumar and wanted me to be a part of it. I took it up because I needed a challenge.

Are you liking Bollywood?

I love it. The journey has been very smooth and pleasant. It hasn't been that much of a contrast; people here are wonderful just like those in the south. People here are very professional. Plus, there were lot from the south the crew. I don't feel like a newcomer.

How different is Bollywood from the south?

It is a bit necklace van cleef arpels imitation different. I like the way people do things here. If they are shooting a song, a lot of effort is put into it be it the song, the location or the make up.

Akshay is so professional and so is Priyan sir. He is someone who will get upset if someone is even 10 to 15 minutes late. He is so organised that if he has van cleef diamond necklace fake a 9 am to 6 pm shift, he makes sure he finishes at 6 pm. We have a lot of time for ourselves.

As far as the transition is concerned, it is a bit premature to comment on that. I may be able to comment on once I do more projects here.

How was your first day of shoot? Were you nervous?

The first day of shoot was in Pune and was only a half day shift. I think Priyan sir knew I would be nervous and it was sweet of him to start the shoot with the climax scene, which was very simple; it was a small scene. It was nice because it was the first time I was meeting everyone. Though I had done a lot of tests with my designers, I hadn't met Akshay. I got acquainted with the crew first and then started Since you van cleef & arpels necklace fake found the language difficult, how did you learn it?

It wasn't all that difficult. I had learnt Hindi in school, and I have relatives in Mumbai, whom I visit often. It is only because of lack of practice that my spoken Hindi isn't good. If I have a script, I am very good at mugging it up. In time, I guess, I need to speak more Hindi in order to pick it up better and be comfortable with it.

Compared to the south, Bollywood is more glamorous. Were you uncomfortable or apprehensive about keeping up?

The Tamil industry is conservative, but the Telugu industry has glamorous and loud films. But here, since it is Priyan sir's film, I wouldn't call it exposure. I think exposure can be done aesthetically. It is up to the individual.

If I am not comfortable wearing revealing clothes, no one will force me to wear them. In this film there is a college song that is glamorous; it has been shot beautifully. A bit of glamour is necessary. When I watch a film, I want to see a bit of glamour and colour.

Were you in awe of Akshay?

The thing with Akshay is that even if someone is in awe of him, he makes it go away just like that. Every time I begin a new film, there is bit of nervousness, but it was more this time because this was the first time in this industry and the first time with a superstar from the north. But Akshay is so sweet; he makes you feel very comfortable.

He is very friendly and makes you comfortable with the unit. He is a prankster, so there is a lot of energy on the sets. He is always on the sets and never goes back to his van between shots. He is always busy with his calls or meetings and makes the place lively to work in.

What pranks did Akshay pull on you?

Fortunately nothing. He thought I was too serious and quiet. But Akshay is always teasing people. His eyes say it all; there is mischief in them all the time.

Are you the silent and serious type?

I do take time to open up; I am not chatty. Akshay said this to me within 10 days of the shoot. Since it was a new environment and a new set, I was nervous. He said I was different because people here talk a lot and I am yet to figure that out.

Apparently it was Akshay who recommended your name for this film. Did you hear of that?

Priyan sir did mention that Akshay had seen Abhiyum Naanum (Tamil) and loved my performance. They were looking for a new face when Akshay suggested that I could fit in. It fell in place so well that it felt like magic. Everybody asked me if it was a trying phase for me, but I would say it was so simple that it happened over a 10 minute phone call.

How was it working with Akshay? Do you remember any memorable instance?

Nothing specific. Working with Akshay was a pleasure. I haven't seen a person let alone an actor who can multitask like him. He has four films running under his production and at the same he is acting in four films and he has to keep fit.

I've asked him if he has time to breathe or sleep. I don't know how he juggles so much. He wakes up at five am and does an hour and a half He then for the shoot whatever the shift. After six pm, he has meetings and shows. It is amazing to see him work like this. Even if I am having a low day and feeling sleepy, after seeing Akshay you want to wake up because there is so much energy.
