Diana, Princess of Wales, Rihanna or Kate Moss: who wore the revenge dress best?
Diana, Princess of Wales, November 1994 The press was left open-mouthed when Diana, Princess of Wales went to a party at the Serpentine Gallery in this jaw-dropping black mini dress, in the middle of the media storm that followed her separation from Prince Charles. The shoulder-baring black cocktail dress was widely hailed as the first ever revenge dress and represented a sartorial fist pump for post break-up women everywhere. Rihanna at her third Diamond Ball, September 2017 Strictly speaking, this might not be a revenge dress, but Rihanna’s Ralph & Russo gown played direct homage to Diana, Princess of Wales. As she elaborated to Vogue Paris in the Christmas 2017 issue: “Every time a man cheats on you or treats you badly, you need a revenge dress. Every woman knows that. But whether her choice of this knockdown dress was conscious or not, I am touched by the idea that even Princess Diana could suffer like any ordinary woman. This Diana Bad Bitch moment blew me away.” Kate Moss, September 2007 After a tumultuous two-year relationship, Kate Moss and Pete Doherty finally separated in 2007. The model looked radiant in a vintage Dior silk gown for her first red carpet appearance since their split, making a case for low-key break-up elegance. Gigi Hadid, November 2015 Gigi Hadid and musician Joe Jonas separated just a few months after they had met. When she appeared at the American Music Awards shortly afterwards, Gigi walked the red carpet in a bold white crop top and split skirt, with her hair in a faux bob. Never has Gabrielle Chanel been more more right: "A woman who cuts her hair, is a woman who is preparing to change her life.” Bella Hadid, November 2016 Bella Hadid and The Weeknd found themselves back together on the runway just a few weeks after their break-up, for Victoria's Secret 2016 in Paris. With nothing more than a quick glance for her ex on-stage, the model chose super sexy Julien Macdonald for the after-party.#PrincessDiana #Rihanna #KatemoMoss #GigiHaddid #BellaHadid #Fashion #Revengedress Tbilisi

Racism claims and officers convicted of crimes: is UK policing due an overhaul?
Description Watchdog to investigate use of force against BAME groups as separate probe reveals criminal offenders in forces nationwide Credits Alex Pantling/Getty Images Alt Text Police Watchdog to investigate use of force against BAME groups as separate probe reveals criminal offenders in forces nationwide In Depth James Ashford Friday, July 10, 2020 - 2:29pm Hundreds of serving police officers in the UK have convictions for criminal offences including assault, burglary and drug possession, an investigation has revealed. Police forces across the country employ at least 211 officers and police community support officers (PCSOs) who have been found guilty of crimes, according to Freedom of Information (FOI) data obtained by Sky News. The publication of the figures comes a day after reports that police in England and Wales are to face an inquiry to establish whether officers racially discriminate against ethnic minorities in their use of force and of stop and search. For which crimes have officers been convicted? The National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) told Sky News that having a criminal record has “never been an automatic bar to joining the police”, and insisted officers are vetted “throughout their service”. Some officers have also been allowed to continue serving after being convicted while employed by forces. Their crimes include causing death by careless driving, assault and possession of a firearm. And although only 211 officers are known to have convictions, the real number is likely to be much higher. Only 16 of the UK’s 45 territorial police forces responded to the FOI requests, “with many claiming it would cost too much to retrieve the information”, the broadcaster reports. Among those that responded, North Wales Police admitted that 20 of its police officers and five PCSOs have criminal convictions, including assault, drug possession and cruelty to animals. The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said 99 serving officers had received criminal convictions while employed by the force, for offences including death by careless driving, assault, harassment and possession of a firearm/drunk in charge of a firearm. See related Cartoon characters could be banned from junk food London Underground to consider ban on junk food adverts Children's online junk food ads banned by watchdog Offences by Kent Police officers include assault, criminal damage and drink driving - with five of those convicted ranked “inspector or above”. Other crimes by officers in police forces including Avon and Somerset, Dorset, Norfolk, Cheshire, and Devon and Cornwall include burglary, theft, obtaining money by deception, battery, possessing an imitation firearm in a public place, and data protection offences. And the racism inquiry? The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) is to investigate cases involving the use of force and stop and search to determine whether any racial discrimination was in play, according to The Guardian. The police watchdog said said it would look for “trends and patterns which might help drive real change” and “investigat[e] more cases where racial discrimination may be a factor in order to develop a body of evidence to identify systemic issues which should be addressed”, the newspaper reports. The inquiry comes amid renewed scrutiny on police forces worldwide in the wake of the killing of African-American man George Floyd during an arrest in Minnesota in May. Police officers in England and Wales have repeatedly been accused of using stop and search powers disproportionately against black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) people. According to an analysis of Home Office internal data last year, black people are 40 times more likely than white people to be stopped and searched by police in the UK. The IOPC will also examine whether BAME people are being failed as victims of crime. Are these policing problems new? Although the protests triggered by Floyd’s death have fuelled calls to combat alleged racism within police forces, such accusations are by no means new. “The policing of black British culture claims a long history”, wrote Lambros Fatsis, a lecturer in sociology and criminology at Southampton University, in a 2018 article on The Conversation. “It might take another Black Lives Matter moment to wake up to police racism and recognise that when policing is part of the problem, it can’t also be the solution to violent crime,” Fatsis predicted. The Metropolitan Police force was infamously branded “institutionally racist” back in 1999 by retired High Court judge William Macpherson, who led the public inquiry into the fatal stabbing of black teenager Stephen Lawrence in 1993. Little appears to have changed in the ensuing decades. The Met “receives more than 250 complaints alleging racism on average each year and less than 1% are upheld”, The Guardian reports. Is it time for an overhaul of UK policing? Police forces across the UK are under pressure to prove that they have listened to the voices of Black Lives Matter protestors. Confirming the upcoming IOPC inquiry, due to begin this autumn, the watchdog’s director general Michael Lockwood said: “Evidence of disproportionality in the use of police powers has long been a concern which impacts on confidence in policing, particularly in the BAME communities.” Experts say changing the way that officers work - whether through more socially conscious community policing strategies, better training and education, or changes to recruitment policies - is key to regaining public confidence in police. The IOPC vowed that “it would not shy away from any conclusion if it found evidence to support it, including that systemic racism was at play”, The Guardian reports. “We can then see if there is a need to change policing policy or practice,” Lockwood said.

Jony Ive: I feel like I’m living two years in the future. Read more👇🏻 Because his job involves dreaming up Apple’s next products, Jony Ive says he feels like he’s constantly living “two years in the future.” That’s one of the insights that emerges from a new interview with Ive and Kim Jones, creative director of Dior Men. While short on specifics about Apple’s future plans, it sheds light on Ive’s design process. It also reveals some of the challenges that accompany his role. Other interesting insights include Ive discussing the frustration involved when innovating right on the cusp of what’s possible: ✔️ “[Sometimes] we have an idea that’s beyond the enabling technology. When we’re absolutely certain that the idea can’t even be prototyped. So often, we have ideas and we’re waiting and working on the technology that will enable the idea. It’s just a strange sort of patience that’s necessary when you feel really good about a direction and an idea, and you just have to wait for the technology to mature.” ✔️ “We have a big team of material scientists and what we’ve found is that with the material, there are so many different attributes that range from a sort of physical performance to an environmental performance, down to color and texture. We’re constantly either improving existing materials we use, like glass and aluminum, and then we’re developing new materials that might have a very specific application or that might have much broader applications. So much of our design starts with the material and trying to better understand the material.” Elsewhere in the conversation, Ive describes himself as “absurdly, frantically inquisitive.” He also says a key challenge is making sure the products he helps shape live up to Apple’s values. The complete interview will appear in the new issue of Document magazine, available for pre-order now. You can also read the full interview online. It definitely won’t clue you into Apple’s future product pipeline. But it’s an interesting (albeit designer-y) discussion about Ive’s important job.

მსოფლიო დეველოპერთა 2019 წლის ივნისის კონფერენციაზე(WWDC) Apple -მა ასევე წარმოადგინა 32 ინჩიანი რეტინა 6K რეზოლუციის მქონე Pro Display XDR, რომელსაც ასევე ანალოგი არ მოეპოვება. მისი ფასი 5000 აშშ დოლარს აღწევს. აღსანიშნავია, რომ ეკრანის ინოვაციური სადგამი ღეძი იძლევა დისპლეის ვერტიკალურ პოზიციაში გადაყვანის შესაძლებლობას, ის ცალკე გაიყიდება და 1000 აშშ დოლარი ეღირება. იხ. მეტი 👇🏻 ☑️ The first 32-inch Retina 6K display ever. Up to 1600 nits of brightness. An astonishing 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio and superwide viewing angle. Over a billion colors presented with exceptional accuracy. And dynamic range that transforms the professional workflow. Introducing Apple Pro Display XDR, the world’s best pro display. Innovation in every layer. Every aspect of the light imaging system in Pro Display XDR is crucial to the overall quality of what you see onscreen. Each element builds on top of the last to create a display with unbelievable brightness and contrast. 576 blue LEDs work together. Typical LCDs are edge-lit by a strip of white LEDs. The 2D backlighting system in Pro Display XDR is unlike any other. It uses a superbright array of 576 blue LEDs that allows for unmatched light control compared with white LEDs. Twelve controllers rapidly modulate each LED so that areas of the screen can be incredibly bright while other areas are incredibly dark. All of this produces an extraordinary contrast that’s the foundation for XDR. Light is mixed and shaped. For even greater control of light, each LED is treated with a reflective layer, a highly customized lens, and a geometrically optimized reflector that are all unique to Pro Display XDR. Through a pioneering design, light is reflected, mixed, and shaped between two layers to minimize blooming and provide uniform lighting. Color is transformed. Converting blue light to white is a difficult process that requires extremely precise color conversion. It’s why most display makers use white LEDs. Pro Display XDR accomplishes this conversion with an expertly designed color transformation sheet made of hundreds of layers that control the light spectrum passing through them. Brightness is taken to the edge. Pro Display XDR extends exceptional image quality to the very edge. To ensure that LEDs along the sides of the display mix well with adjacent ones, a micro-lens array boosts light along the edges. This creates uniform color and brightness across the entire screen. One chip makes it all possible. With a massive amount of processing power, the timing controller (TCON) chip utilizes an algorithm specifically created to analyze and reproduce images. It controls LEDs at over 10 times the refresh rate of the LCD itself, reducing latency and blooming. It’s capable of multiple refresh rates for amazingly smooth playback. Managing both the LED array and LCD pixels, the TCON precisely directs light and color to bring your work to life with stunning accuracy. უფრო დეტალურად apple.com-ზე.
