The eyes have it Ocean City isn’t much to look at

The eyes have it Ocean City isn’t much to look at. But on the boardwalk and on the sand, where the beautiful guys and girls gather, the watchword is voyeurism.

July 20, 1998By Arthur Hirsch Arthur Hirsch,Sun Staff

OCEAN CITY The eyes are peeled, hungry. Behind waves of wrap around shades, tiny silver framed John Lennon sunglasses, Ray Bans and Jackie Os, the eyes scope the shore for an object of desire. A woman, dripping saltwater and dressed in little else, steps out of the sea, then onto the boardwalk, walking a gantlet of eyes. A man, hairless and buffed to a beefy shimmer, struts by as if expecting applause, receiving but a silent flutter of eyelashes.

To see and to be seen and to switch roles at will, isn’t that why so many have come so far and so often? Along the beach or on the boardwalk especially on the boardwalk glances flash like fireflies. One seems to have stumbled into a convention of surveillance artists. It’s an open air gallery, a sightseeing tour. But please, no photographs.

In its pathological form, voyeurism is included in the psychiatric bible, the "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders." In its more benign form, it’s high in the Ocean
cheap ray bans City book of Things To Do. Swim, boogie board, jog, fly a kite, play miniature golf, eat a funnel cake, eat saltwater taffy, ride the Ferris wheel, read a trash novel and look, look, look.

"A couple days ago we had somebody running down the beach in this electric pink swimsuit," says Devon Doane, a high school senior from Bethany who works a summer job for a company that rents beach umbrellas, chairs and boogie boards. "She looked like Barbie. . . . You could see everyone’s head kind of . . ." Her voice trails off as she mimes the motion of many heads rotating as one, seemingly wired to one remote control.

Although Doane’s attention is more often drawn to attractive young men, on this occasion her head turned with the
fake ray bans rest, tracking the progress of this blond jogger who, with her hot pink bikini, wore high top running shoes.

"It seemed an odd exercise outfit," says Doane.

In the flick of an eye, Doane may slip from watcher to watched and back again. She is 17, dark haired and dark eyed and on this particular day wears precious little: a blue and white bikini, a tan. All day long she strides from her customers to her umbrella shaded post set back from the water’s edge. She can feel the eyes on her, she says.

"I tend to think people are looking at me when I’m out there messing with the umbrellas and things," says Doane. When called upon to help a customer set up or take down an umbrella, she might notice that she is being noticed by a guy or three lounging nearby.

"Sometimes when you’ll look down you’ll make eye contact. They’ll look away," she says. It can be flattering, she says, but "sometimes it’s creepy. I’m not intimidated when it’s a bunch of guys my age. But when it’s older men . . ."

Do not cross

Somewhere in the sand there’s a line between attention
cheap ray bans that flatters and attention that puts the nervous system on alert, between a look that respects personal space and one that violates it. With prompting, the watchers and the watched along the boardwalk will consider this distinction.

Danielle Lins and Alesha Christensen, both 15 and from York, Pa., dark haired and dressed in bikini tops and shorts, attract a male audience as they walk south along the boardwalk late one afternoon. For Christensen, the attention is unwelcome. Maybe some people figure the boardwalk is a place to watch and be watched, she says, but "for me it isn’t."

Lins says, "Sometimes it’s OK. But when they’re too forward, when they come up to you being real loud about it . . ."

This is a problem, she says. But then, so is the reverse. The long look accompanied by not a word. Just a pair of eyes bearing

down. Even in a public place staring may seem a violation of privacy, "a departure from ordinary and normally expected observation," writes Texas Tech University philosophy professor Daniel O. Nathan. "The question of whether privacy has been violated seems to depend on how abnormally invasive the observing was."Paul Zawatski, 19, visiting the shore with two college buddies, is no philosopher. But
replica ray ban sunglasses he knows something about the protocol of beachfront voyeurism.

"If it’s an extended stare, it’s pretty bad," says Zawatski, of Pittsburgh, a junior at Penn State University. "If you get caught staring, it’s bad. . . . You gotta’ feel like an idiot, pretty much."

"Any time is good," says Zawatski.

This is Ocean City, after all, a place remarkably well suited for a little harmless voyeurism. Put it this way: What else is there to look at? Another french fry stand? Another chain restaurant? Another putt putt course? Another high rise condo designed with all the elegance and style of a Comfort Inn?Articles Connexes:

‘real’ Hawaii

Shane’s picks The Sheraton Kona’s overhauled Ray’s on the Bay restaurant and bar, which features live music and one of the state’s best ocean vistas, offers terrific open air dining with locally sourced cuisine and even views of plankton feeding manta rays most nights.

Travelers interested in a closer look at the graceful sea creatures can join one of several nighttime manta ray snorkeling tours departing from nearby Keauhou boat harbor.

It’s easy to get swept up in a Kalani Nakoa story. Tall, broad shouldered and frequently bearing a megawatt smile, the longtime Big Island resident dazzled our small group with Hawaiian history during a recent tour of Keauhou Bay and some of the surrounding coast in his 38 foot sailing canoe, the Kinikini.

"If you take the time to learn the real story, it’s always better than anything you can make up,"
cheap ray bans Nakoa said. "And the history of Keauhou is amazing. From the birthplace of Kauikeaouli and the magnitude of the holua slide to the Lekeleke battlefield, it’s all right there in a space of three quarters of a mile of coastline."

A turquoise harbor lined with jagged, black lava rock, Keauhou Bay is 15 miles south of the Kona Airport and a place of vast cultural significance for the Hawaiian people, including the stone on which King Kamehameha III or Kauikeaouli lay
replica ray bans stillborn for hours, according to Nakoa, and the terminus of one the of state’s few intact holua, or massive mountain sledding tracks.

Last April, Nakoa partnered with the recently renamed Sheraton Kona Resort Spa at Keauhou Bay to offer guests complimentary one hour sails aboard his replica of an ancient sailing canoe, constructed with a combination of modern and traditional materials. Nakoa runs a foundation reconnecting schoolchildren with Hawaiian culture via ocean activities, but he’s also a visitor industry veteran who said he’s seen travelers’ interests shift in recent years.

"Before, people used to come with nothing," he said. "They were just looking for the grass skirts and the mai tais and the beach. But nowadays when they come, many people really want to know about the culture, and they want to know what happened here. And they don’t want any phony baloney. They want the real stuff."Work on a nine month, $20 million renovation at the 22 acre Sheraton Kona finished up in September and included dramatic improvements to each of the hotel’s 509 rooms, its lobby, public areas and restaurants.

"In the guestrooms, we replaced all the items that you touch," said General Manager Steve Lindburg. "The drapes were replaced, the carpeting, the wall covering and paint, the lamps, television. We reskinned the furniture, and the bedding is all brand new to Sheraton standards. We put new furniture on the lanai [so] it’s essentially a brand new room without changing walls
cheap ray bans and fixtures."

Restoring the resort’s connection with Keauhou’s cultural heritage was another chief aim of the recent renovation, one that relied heavily on Hawaiian design themes conceived by Big Island artist Sig Zane and a programming renaissance overseen by the property’s new director of cultural and leisure activities, Lily Dudoit.

"I think the world has known us to be something else for a long time," Dudoit said of Hawaii. "There’s a certain image visitors often have that includes surfing or the hula girl with the coconuts on and the goofy music, pineapples, beaches, snorkeling, which is all true. You can get all of that while you’re here, but the people and the culture are alive and well. The heartbeat of Hawaii is the people and our cultural traditions. "

Along with hula lessons and Hawaiian crafts classes, Dudoit now leads cultural tours for guests to the nearby Lekeleke battlefield, where Hawaiians fought Hawaiians in 1819
fake ray bans over Christianity’s future in the Islands, and to the ruins of an ancient fishing village fronting Keauhou Bay.

Both walks, lasting about an hour each, are loaded with historical and cultural information along with a rich sampling of Hawaiian chants and stories, while Nakoa’s new sailing activity offers Sheraton Kona guests a truly unique Hawaiian experience.

"It gives guests a glimpse back in time," Dudoit said of the sailing tour. "It also gives a glimpse into the genius of the Hawaiian people, the navigation they used and how they survived on the ocean. And visitors can’t get on a Hawaiian sailing canoe like this anywhere else."

Laurie Jo Rogers, owner of Destinations in Paradise, a destination management company catering to high end incentive travelers, called the improvements at the Sheraton Kona "phenomenal" and said the enhanced cultural program marks a big step forward for the property.

"I was around before we became a state," she said. "And in the old days we were ashamed of being Hawaii. Now it’s the most important thing to show that heritage and show that culture.Articles Connexes:

Flowering Trees

Geoff Bryant

There TMs no doubt that city gardens now dominate that thoughts of plant breeders and nurseries
cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet and nowhere is this more evident than in the recent trends in the development of trees. Where once trees were though of as the major feature in a landscape, and large size was regarded as an asset, now we find that although gardeners still like the idea of trees, most find their bulk offputting. Large trees also help to reduce the force of the wind and can be used a boundary. Many country gardens are therefore both sheltered and defined by boundaries of large trees. But as effective as such plantings are at protecting the garden, filling space and hiding unsightly out buildings or waste areas, they tend to be rather monotonous " often just one or two tones of green. Eucalypts and acacias are particularly suited to group planting and can be used in paddocks to create small shelter blocks or woodlots. Although acacias are prone to wind damage, they are very good for shelter as they are palatable to stock. Don TMt leave the stock among the trees for more than a week or so, especially if feed is short supply, or the trees may suffer from stock grazing on or stripping the bark through rubbing. You will lose much of the benefit of the flowers with timber trees as they will eventually grow too high for the flowers to be very visible. On the other hand the regular trimming of coppiced promotes rapid new low level growth that will develop into flowering wood at relatively. If you have the room this can be the most satisfying form of gardening, allowing all manner of perennials and other plant to be grown under the trees. Managing woodlots to best achieve these multiple objectives requires careful planning and a thorough understanding of the methods available. This demands that you plan ahead to avoid any embarrassment as they grow. Just because you may have a large garden it doesn TMt mean that you can TMt run into problems with trees outgrowing their allotted space. Remember to consider the spread as well as the height: some trees, like the silk tree (Albizia julibrissin), may be wider than they are high, which is great if you need a shade tree for a lawn but is less appealing where fences and hedges set limits for the spread of the tree. Frost and wind tolerance and rainfall are the main climatic concerns, while drainage, depth, humus content, and pH are the most important soil considerations. The climate will also determine the rate of growth. Any large tree will provide shade throughout the year, but when the sun is at its lowest in winter, a wide spreading tree can shade a considerable area. It may be difficult to find many trees that bloom in winter in inland
Cheap Michael Kors handbags or southern areas with cold winters and regular heavy frosts, but in most parts of the country it is possible to have at least one or two trees in bloom at any time. Given the choice, most gardeners will opt for evergreens over deciduous plants " the advantage of year round foliage is nearly always
cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet decisive. However, deciduous trees have plenty to offer, not just in terms of their superiority as shade and compost providers, but as ornamental plants too. Think of deciduous trees and the first thing that comes to mind is autumn foliage, those vivid tones of yellow, orange and red, but the bright green of the new spring growth should not be underestimated. Most have golden yellow flowers, are relatively short lived and tend to have rather brittle branches that are easily damaged by wind. This brittleness makes most wattles unsuitable for shelter plantings, although the sallow wattle (A. floribunda) is often used as a quick screen. By far the most common is the Cootamundra wattle (A. baileyana), which has fine, feathery foliage, grows to about 8 m high 10 m wide, and produces massed clusters of flowers in late winter and spring. The alpine wattle (A. pravissima) is smaller (around 5 m 6 m) and has bright yellow flowers. It has triangular, pointed phyllodes (leaflets) and is hardy over most of the country. They also have edible foliage and flowers. julibrissin) is usually grown as a shade or lawn tree. It has large fern like (bipinnate) leaves composed of many tiny leaflets. In summer it produces fluffy, ball shaped, filamentous, pale yellow and pink flowers. The form Rosea TM has deep pink flowers. The silk tree grows to about 6 m 8 m and thrives in light well drained soil. lophantha is a somewhat frost tender evergreen species that closely resembles an acacia. It has bright, slightly glaucous, green pinnate leaves and 100 mm long fluffy yellow bottle brush flowers. The common F.
Michael Kors outlet excelsior is a 15 m high 9 m wide, broad headed, deciduous tree that is frequently used as a street tree. It has 200 mm long pinnate leaves usually made up of seven leaflets and bears panicles of tiny, fragrant, white flowers in spring. oxycarpa) is similar but has slightly smaller leaves. ornus). This species has a dense foliage cover and large flower heads. It colours well in the autumn. F. mariesii is similar to F. australis) is extremely well known for its distinctive foliage and growth habit, but less well known for its beautiful, large panicles of fragrant, creamy white flowers. These appear in spring and are followed by small white berries. indivisa) has much wider, somewhat glaucous, leaves with prominent ribbing. It is an attractive plant but demands moist soil and high humidity to be at its best. Cabbage trees prefer moist soil and are quite tolerant of poor drainage. It grows to about 15 m high and is strongly built,
cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet with a particularly stout trunk. Carob has very strong roots that can lift paving, so take care not to plant it near paths and driveways. The most common species is C. corymbosa, particularly the form John Ball TM. It grows to about 4 m 4 m and has bright green pinnate leaves that are up to 150mm long and composed of leaflets with prominent midribs. It produces yellow, buttercup like flowers in large clusters appear from about the middle of March. Grow in light well drained soil in full sun and protect from frost when young. Most other species have a similar appearance but vary slightly in size, leaf shape and flowering season. C. bignonioides) is a large (20 m 15 m), deciduous North American tree. It had large, light green oval leaves and in summer produces upright clusters of cream to very pale pink, tubular flowers. It is often said that this is one of the few very hardy trees with flowers that can rival the flamboyance of the tropical trees. This may be stretching things a bit, but there TMs no denying that a mature catalpa in full bloom is an impressive sight. siliquastrum) and Chinese redbud (C. chinensis) both grow to about 8 m 5 m, have distinctive light bronze green, heart shaped leaves and springtime flower clusters in an unusual shade of purplish pink. The flowers are followed by bean like seed pods. White flowered forms are available. The foliage often colours well in the autumn. Most species are deciduous, though a few, notable the Mexican hawthorn (C. pubescens), are evergreen. They produce apple blossom like flowers in spring, which may, depending on the cultivar, be single or double, in various shades of white, pink and red.
cheap michael kors The flowers are followed by conspicuous fruit that is usually red or golden yellow. floribunda; M. Oporto TM, which has very deep plum coloured flowers; M. Jack Humm TM, which is primarily grown for its bright red fruit; and C. laevigata (syn. Although deciduous it is not particularly hardy, being damaged at about 6C. The simple glossy deep green oval leaves are about 60 mm long and are usually carried in groups of three. In summer the tree produces clusters of 30 mm diameter frilly flowers. There are many colour forms in shades of white, cream, pink, mauve and red; there are also dwarf forms suitable for tub cultivation. Dogwoods have simple but bold spring flowers, good autumn foliage colour, and some have brightly coloured winter stems. C. controversa, C. florida and C. kousa usually have the best flowers, while C. nuttalii provides brilliant autumn colour. C. alternifolia has a graceful tiered growth habit, but insignificant flowers. C. stolonifera has bright red winter twigs and C. The flowers have four leathery petals and are usually white when first open but develop pink tints as they age. The flowers are often followed by large round fruits that are seen at their best on C. kousa and the evergreen C. capitata is often damaged at 6C when young. They do best when planted in moist, humus enriched, well drained soil in sun or light shade. All produce filamentous flowers in shades of white, cream, pink, yellow, orange or red, varying in size and season. Some, such as scarlet flowering gum (E. ficifolia), put on a truly magnificent floral display while others, such as E. pauciflora var. niphophila, at around 6 m high to giants, such as E. globulus, which may exceed 60 m. However, they are among the most attractive and easy care evergreen trees available. And of course they really shine as quick growing farm trees; a range of species can provide plants suitable for timber, coppicing and flowers, which are particularly popular with bees. Some, such as E. This 8 "10 m high tree is usually upright and quite narrow with weeping branches. Most have tiny needle like or elliptical leaves. The flowers are similar to those of the closely related bottlebrush (Callistemon sp.) but are usually smaller. There are species in almost every colour of flower, though cream, yellow, pinkish mauve and red predominate. The most common species is E. cordifolia, a Chilean native. The other Chilean species, E. glutinosa, is rarely seen in gardens but has been crossed with E. cordifolia to produce the hybrid E. nymansensis. The three Australian species, E. milliganii, E. moorei and E. lucida are rarely seen. The foliage tend to be among the last to fall in autumn and often turns a bright yellow before dropping. In summer it produces large terminal heads of yellow flowers that are followed by clusters of papery seed capsules. Both G. banksii and the silky oak (G. robusta) have bronze green pinnate foliage and develop into round headed trees. Though similar in appearance, G. robusta is considerably taller than G. banksii: 15 m high as opposed to 6 m. Both flower in late spring to mid summer. G. banksii has red flowers while those of G. robusta are golden orange. These trees prefer a well drained, somewhat acid soil and are frost tender when young. The New Zealand honeysuckle or rewarewa (Knightia excelsa) is also in the protea family. Its brownish red flowers, while interesting and unusual, are scarcely spectacular. The most common species is the evergreen H. populnea. When young it is a very upright tree, but as it ages it becomes more round headed and grows to about 12 m high. Various foliage forms are available, though all produce massed small clusters of 2 cm diameter white flowers in late summer and early autumn. Other evergreen species grown include H. sexstylosa, which is very similar to H. populnea, and H. lyalli and H. glabrata, are similar to one another. H. lyalli grows to about 7 m while H. glabrata is a little taller at 9 m. The leaves are similar to H. populnea but covered in fine hairs. H. glabrata has somewhat bluish leaves. Both species flower in summer and are hardy to at least 15C. It is a semi evergreen or deciduous 12 m 8 m tree that is almost totally frost tender when young, but tolerates 5C once well established. Although the very finely divided fern like leaves are attractive, jacaranda is mainly grown for its spectacular clusters of bright purplish blue trumpet flowers. These may appear in spring in very mild areas, with summer the main flowering season. White and pink flowered forms are occasionally available. Up to 15 m high when mature, though shrubby for many years, it has elliptical, deep bronze green, serrated edged leaves up to 100 mm long. In summer, the tree produces masses of 150 mm long, narrow creamy white bottlebrush like flower heads. The massed flowers often swarm with bees as they are heavy with nectar and
Michael Kors handbags outlet pollen. The flowers are followed by 20 mm diameter red berry like fruits. There is also a purple leafed form. Kamahi prefers a moist, slightly acid soil and is easily grown in most parts of New Zealand. The towai (W. microphylla) are hardy, heavy flowering and easily grown. These species are evergreen for most of the year but often drop most of their leaves as flowering begins in late winter or early spring. S. tetraptera has large olive green leaflets that can be quite stiff and leathery, which tends to make the leaves curl slightly. It has pendulous clusters of large bright yellow flowers. S. microphylla has very small deep green leaflets and flowers that are smaller than those of S. tetraptera, but there are more blooms per cluster and they tend to be a golden, rather than bright, yellow. The flowers of both species are followed by brown, bean like seed pods. Of these, S. japonica is the most common. It has deciduous, 200 mm long, light green, pinnate leaves and cream, or occasionally pale pink, flowers in 200 "300 mm long terminal panicles. It may grow to 15 m 12 m but is often grafted onto 2 m standards to produce a small weeping tree. patersonii) is a small evergreen tree. Quick growing when young, it slows considerably after reaching 4 m. It has mid green leathery oval leaves about 75 mm long with
cheap Michael Kors silvery grey undersides. The 40 "50 mm diameter mid pink mallow like flowers are followed by seed pods that contain irritant hairs. Remove the pods before they ripen unless you want to collect the seed. The Canary Island laurel (L. azorica), however, offers equally attractive evergreen, deep green, oval foliage with the added bonus of large clusters of cream flowers in late spring. arborea) is an evergreen large shrub or small tree " advanced specimens may reach 6 m 3 m. It has large, deep green, laurel like foliage and from mid summer bears masses of mildly fragrant, white, lily of the valley flowers in large panicles. It is not entirely hardy but will withstand occasional frosts of 6C. campbellii and the evergreen M. campbellii, which may grow to 20 m 12 m, has long, mid green, oval leaves, very like those of the common M. soulangiana. It is also one of the earliest to flower: usually starting to produce its vase shaped cream to deep pink blooms in mid August. M. grandiflora grows to a similar size and has leaves that are a glossy mid olive green on top with rust coloured felting below. Some forms, such as Ferruginea TM, have very heavy felting. The flowers, which are fragrant, are creamy white and cup shaped. P. tomentosa is the species generally grown as a garden specimen. It is a hardy, strongly branched tree with large (up to 300 mm long), heart shaped leaves, deep green on the upper surfaces and light green underneath with some felting. It grows to about 15 m high 8 m wide. The spectacular purplish blue trumpet flowers are carried in foxglove like heads and open in spring from the terminal heads of furry brown buds that are carried right through winter. They are followed by rounded seed capsules that hang on well into winter. Trees often carry the current year TMs seed capsules and the following season TMs buds at the same time. Several species and many hybrids are grown and they range in size from the very dwarf almonds, such as the P. glandulosa forms, which are suitable for small gardens and containers, through to large spreading trees, such as P. Among the most popular are the weeping and horizontal standards. These are naturally low, spreading plants that have been grafted onto upright standards from 1 "2.5 m high. There are also a few very deep pink, bordering on red, cultivars and some with orange tints. Flowers may be single, semi double or fully double. Often a double flowered form will also carry some single flowers. Many of the ornamental forms are sterile and do not bear fruit, but some develop small, usually inedible, fruit after flowering. The trees are generally very frost hardy, although some of the very early flowering forms, such as P. subhirtella Autumnalis TM or Geisha TM, may suffer flower or bud damage from hard frosts. The simple rounded leaves are a bright glossy mid green on young plants but mature trees have deep green leathery leaves with white indumentum. Old trees often develop aerial roots on the trunk and branches. Various flower colours and leaf forms are available. Except for being frost tender, especially when young, this is an easily grown tree. umbellata) and the northern rata (M. robusta) are far tougher plants but they seldom do well in gardens. Their flowers are similar to those of the pohutukawa, but while spectacular in the wild, they are less showy in a garden. Both species are hardy to at least 10C so they are worth trying in areas too cold to grow M. excelsa. Most often seen in late winter, the panicles of bloom may occur at any time. They are followed by bright red 20 mm long berries. The foliage of the puriri is very handsome: the leaves are a lustrous, glossy green; and composed of 3 "5 broad leathery leaflets that are up to 125 mm long. Puriri grows to 15 m 10 m and is a very impressive tree in all respects. Fittingly, it is host to one of our most impressive insects: the puriri moth. The caterpillars of this large moth can often be found on trees in the wild, but they usually do little damage. It has been used for piles, fencing, bridges and other construction, while also being suitable for fine furniture. pseudoacacia Frisia TM is the most commonly planted member of this genus and has become enormously popular over the last ten years. However, it seldom, if ever, flowers. The true species, R. pseudoacacia, on the other hand, produces attractive, fragrant, white flower clusters in late spring and early summer. hispida, has recently been promoted as the pink wisteria tree. It has long racemes of pink flowers and grows to about 4 m. Though usually grown for its berries, the cream spring flowers, while often rather unpleasantly scented, are nevertheless conspicuous. The colour of the berries varies with the species. Mountain ash has orange berries, S. americana has white berries, while those of S. hupehensis are white tinted pink. The smaller growing (up to 4 m 1.8 m) S. vilmorinii is available in pink, yellow or red berried forms. Birds are attracted to the yellow, red or orange berries, but tend to leave the white berries. Some species, most notably S. discolor, have attractive autumn foliage but most show little autumn colouration. It is a hardy evergreen with rounded, dark green red stemmed leaves, about 60 mm long and finely serrated. The reddish brown bark is attractive too, especially when wet. It is tolerant of coastal conditions and alkaline soil, which is unusual for an a member of the erica family. Grow in moist, well drained, humus enriched soil in sun or light shade. Although A. unedo is by far the most common species, I prefer A. The most common species, S. japonica, grows to about 7 m and has deep green pointed heart shaped leaves and slightly drooping racemes of small bell shaped white flowers. S. obassia is a slightly taller species that has fragrant flowers. Both prefer cool, moist, well drained soil and cool, moist summer conditions. They have tiny adpressed leaves that are reminiscent of heather (Calluna). T. parviflora is usually regarded as the best flowering species and produces masses of minute, bright pink flowers in spring and summer. It grows to about 6 m 3 m. Tamarisks prefer light well drained soil in full sun. microphylla) is a rather open growing tree (around 8 m 5 m) with tiny rounded deep bronze green leaves and springtime clusters of small fluffy yellow flowers that are strongly vanilla scented. It is easily grown in most well drained soils. A very attrArticles Connexes:

Zoo animals on the loose in Georgia

At least 12 people have been killed in the disaster, including three zoo workers.

An escaped hippo was cornered in one of the city main squares and subdued with a
cheap Michael Kors handbags tranquilizer gun, the zoo said. Some other animals also have been seized, but it remained unclear how many are on the loose. Bears and wolves are also among the animals that fled from their enclosures amid the flooding from heavy rains and high
Michael Kors handbag outlet winds.

There were no immediate reports that any
wholesale Michael Kors handbags outlet of the fatalities were due to animal attacks. The zoo said one of the dead was Guliko Chitadze, a zookeeper who lost an arm in an attack by a tiger last month; the Interfax news agency said her husband also died in the flooding.

As of mid afternoon Sunday, it was unclear how many animals remained on the loose or what species they are.

"Not all the animals who ran
fake Michael kors handbags outlet away from the zoo have been captured. Therefore, I want to ask the populace to refrain from moving about the city without" an urgent need to, mayor David Narmania said.

A full accounting of what animals were missing wasn immediately possible because a large part of the zoo remained underwater, zoo spokeswoman Khaati Batsilaishvili told The Associated Press.

Heavy rains and wind hit Tbilisi during the night, turning a normally small stream that runs through the hilly city into a surging river. The flooding also damaged dozens of houses.

Narmania told journalists that 12 people were known to have died.

Helicopters circled
cheap Michael Kors the city and volunteers and rescue workers labored to help those whose residences were damaged or destroyed, despite the potential danger from the escaped animals. About 1.1 million people live in the former Soviet republic capital.

The head of the Georgian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Ilia II, was quoted by the Interfax news agency as telling a Sunday Mass that Georgia former Communist rulers could be seen as involved
discount Michael Kors in the disaster.

"When Communists came to us in this country, they ordered that all crosses and bells of the churches be melted down and the money used to build the zoo," he said. "The sin will not go without punishment. I am very sorry that Georgians fell so that a zoo was built at the expense of destroyed churches."Articles Connexes:

BENGALURU: CVC Capital Partners, a $46 billion global private equity house focused on management buyouts, is up against Blackstone Group in the final lap of an acquisition bid for the Indian unit of business process outsourcing major Serco.

The two buyout funds fired
Michael Kors outlet binding offers last month valuing the Serco India unit, formerly Intelenet, at around $400 million (about Rs 2,500 crore), people directly familiar with the matter said. TOI, in February, reported that Blackstone was making a serious bid to buy back Intelenet which it sold to Serco for $634 million four years ago.

The offer from CVC Capital Partners is interesting and, if successful, would be their first big bet on the Indian market. The bid for Intelenet comes almost two years after it acquired Philippines’ largest BPO company SPi Global for over $300 million.

Blackstone’s rebid, however, carries some clout as Intelenet garners more than 15% revenue from its portfolio companies like Hilton Hotels and Travelport. A formal announcement on the successful suitor is expected in the coming weeks.

In November last year, Serco had announced that it would divest private sector BPO businesses as part of a business restructuring plan that would see it focus on being a business to government provider across five core areas. The sale proceeds would be used to lower the net debt of the parent company.

"This is a good business with highly capable people but does not fit with the future strategic direction of Serco and will find a better home with a new owner. We are not going to comment further on the divestment process," a Serco spokesperson said, replying
cheap michael kors to a query on the bidding process.

CVC Capital Partners could not be reached immediately, while Blackstone refused to comment on speculation.

Several bidders both private equity and strategic like Carlyle Group, Apax partners, Sykes and Teleperformance were among those who had evaluated the acquisition.

Serco had decided on a competitive bidding process even as the local management headed by Susir Kumar mulled a management buyout option. Kumar and top executives are expected to align with the successful bidder.Articles Connexes:
