"We are a small, cramped bar, " a staff member posted on the bar #x27;s Facebook page. "Some hate it, it #x27;s also what some of us like about it. Now it #x27;s a big hurdle. "Numerous shops, restaurants, bars and performance spaces have been forced to shut down in Toronto during the pandemic. Many will be allowed to reopen when the city moves into Stage 3 of the province #x27;s reopening plan in the coming weeks, subject to certain restrictions to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.
From the time that numeric control started making inroads into machine shops in the middle of the last century until relatively recently, the power of being able to control machine tools with something other than a skilled human hand was evident. Unfortunately, the equipment to do so was expensive, and so NC technology remained firmly in the big shops, where a decent return on investment could be realized.Fast forward a few decades, and everything that makes the computerized version of NC possible is cheap and easily available. Servos, steppers, drivers, and motion control components can be plugged together into CNC machines that can move a tool to a fixed point in space with incredible accuracy and repeatability. But without CNC software, none of it means a thing.
On June 27, just a day before our presidential election, YouTube blocked the LGBT expos eacute; titled Their True Targets (Ich prawdziwe cele) produced by PCh24.pl, an independent conservative Polish website. And it wasn #39;t just the first example of the tech giant censorship in Poland. It had already happened before. Though there is no censorship in Poland, a foreign company has deemed it has the right to decide what we can watch or read.At the same time, I see the news from the United States and things which were known to my grandfathers 100 years ago mdash; leftist thugs destroying monuments, looting shops, burning private property, attacking innocent people.

There is no denying that the relationship between art and sexual imagery is as longstanding as the history of art itself. Nude figures in varying degrees of censorship have been consistently depicted even as styles and tastes have changed throughout the centuries. Even ancient Rome saw the production of erotic sculptures, frescoes, and mosaics. How these forms of art became defined as art and not porn is the underlying question in the current exhibition The Pleasure Principle at Maccarone in Los Angeles. Featuring well known female artists, including Lynda Benglis, Louise Bourgeois, Tracey Emin, and Laurie Simmons the exhibition that is fully funded by the porn giant, Pornhub, blurs the boundaries between art and porn by recontextualizing porn in the setting of an art gallery.The obvious question when considering Pornhub s collaboration with Maccarone is, why? Why would Pornhub spend the money to commission a large scale art exhibition? And why would Maccarone agree to it? The answer for Pornhub seems to be related to a larger cultural program that the company has been promoting in recent years: I think it s important to get involved culturally, Pornhub vice president Corey Price explained to Bloomberg. But we don t just randomly sponsor art things we want it to be part of the conversation of sex and sexuality in the art space. Pornhub certainly has been taking their cultural agenda seriously. There s no denying that there is a conversation between art and porn, so why shouldn t Pornhub be a part of that? Beyond Maccarone, Pornhub has also partnered with the Museum of Sex in New York on pop up gift shops, as well as a major exhibition of erotic film from the early 1900s to the 1960s that explores the origins of the porn industry.
The four day conference and networking event is the brainchild of Estefania Lacayo, a Nicaraguan New Yorker with 17 years of experience in the fashion business, and Samantha Tams, a retail specialist. They launched the project in 2018 to help Latin American creatives and entrepreneurs who had previously had little to no access to the industry s international decision makers. With the promise of panels, workshops, and dinners at home, Lacayo and Tams lured the likes of Carolina Herrera, Francisco Costa, entrepreneur Carmen Busquets, jeweler Ana Khouri, MatchesFashion.com s Natalie Kingham, and Colombia s own rising star Johanna Ortiz to the summit, and 600 attendees participated.Busquets and Herrera spoke about the Latin American fashion boom and what it takes to make it on the global stage, and Costa joined Mexican Vogue s Karla Martinez de Salas to discuss his new beauty project Costa Brazil. Lacayo s personal highlight came during the welcome event. Everyone went around the room saying hello, and at one point 15 children stood up and introduced themselves as students from Honduras who were in attendance thanks to the sponsorship programs we developed with NGOs and private family offices. It s this type of inclusivity that s one of our main missions, and to see it come to life was truly special for us.
THOMAS COOK, a British travel agency, began life in July 1841 offering day trips to teetotallers between Leicester and Loughborough. In its heyday it counted Mark Twain, Rudyard Kipling and Winston Churchill among its customers before evolving into a leading modern package holiday firm. But its story ended ignominiously with holidaymakers being locked in a Tunisian hotel by security guards demanding that they pay again for their rooms if they wanted to go home.The world s oldest holiday company collapsed on September 23rd after a decade of financial troubles. It leaves behind just one fully integrated tour operator in Europe that still owns shops, airliners and hotels itself: TUI of Germany.
An Apple spokesperson suggests that the feature was originally ;introduced; last year, and is being displayed now because Apple recently expanded its authorized service network to 1,800 providers across the United States by adding every Best Buy store to the list. As such, four fifths of Apple customers are now within 20 minutes of an authorized service provider, enabling the company to assert that the vast majority of U.S. iPhone users can and should seek authorized repairs when their batteries degrade or fail.For iFixit and other independent repair shops, however, the issue isn 't just the loss of business, but the broad brush Apple is using to paint "unauthorized " battery repairs as potentially unsafe and the way it 's being portrayed as an established practice, when it was only recently turned on. According to Apple 's statement:
Snap faces competitive pressures to support influencers as rival platforms like Instagram and YouTube work to court creators by helping them monetize their digital content.

What she dislikes are dog owners who insist on taking their pooches with them everywhere they go mdash; to restaurants, movie theaters, clothing shops and grocery stores. "At a brew pub, the owner is paying attention to their beer and their friend, and their dog may be doing something else entirely," she said. "There are issues with hygiene, with people having phobias, or having allergies and someone who just brings their dog everywhere is only thinking about themselves and their dog and not thinking other people and how they are going to interact with that dog."
