The troubled actress made her way into a Ray Ban sponsored event with a large number of friends after swearing at door staff to let her in.

"She started arguing with the security guy and screaming for him to ‘fk off’. Finally they ushered her in through the side door."
Onlookers believe the side entrance had been prepared for Josh Hartnett to arrive, and party organisers were further left annoyed by Lindsay’s large entourage of 30 guests.
Another source told the New York Daily News newspaper: "If they expected Lindsay, they certainly didn’t expect her to come with that many people. Most celebrities brought one or two guests her crew was inappropriately large.
"It caused a huge commotion, because the VIP area was definitely not equipped to handle that amount of guests. Event staff were running around like crazy trying to accommodate her."

Tyson Foods exec spreads wings in China
SHANGHAI When James Rice first arrived in southern China in 1987, locals flocked to get a closer look at the 6 foot 1,
discount ray bans 185 pound Californian with brown hair and hazel eyes. Most people in remote Yunnan province had never seen a white man before, so when they caught up with him as he glided on "speedy shoes," as they called his rollerblades, some would pinch his skin or touch his long legs.
Twenty years later, 20 pounds heavier and white streaks over his brush cut hair, Rice still draws a crowd in China.
In the spring, camera crews followed him as he steered his 1952 green and gold Rolls Royce from Hong Kong to the Great Wall in Beijing, along with a clutch of other classic car hobbyists. More recently, Rice was making the rounds at a large poultry market in Suzhou, the ancient silk city near Shanghai, when people began to cluster around the man who is pictured on a billboard high above the entrance of the market. Save for the Rolex watch and Ray Ban sunglasses, the 42 year old looked the same as in the billboard, with neatly pressed khaki
fake ray bans shirt and matching pants the uniform worn by all employees of Tyson Foods Inc.
"China’s been good to me," says Rice, who came to China with $100 in his pocket and now runs Tyson’s rapidly growing business in this nation.
Tyson exports about $200 million of chicken to China annually and is expanding its Chinese operations.
"What Americans don’t eat, the Chinese love," and vice versa, Rice says. chicken exports to China are expected to double to $1 billion in 2012 this has been a tough year to be in the food business here. Food safety problems have roiled Sino American relations since pet food ingredients from China killed and sickened thousands of dogs and cats in the United States, sometimes putting people like Rice in the cross hairs. regulators restricted imports of Chinese shrimp, catfish and other foods.
But the crisis and political challenges may have presented the perfect opportunity for Rice to gear up for what his friends see as his future calling: diplomat. As a senior executive of the world’s largest meat company and member of the board of governors of the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai, Rice has been a voice for calm and reason in opinion pieces he’s written for the Asian Wall Street Journal. He has brokered meetings between top Chinese officials and reporters and has had some success goading political leaders in Beijing and Washington to open their doors to each other.
In October, Rice
cheap ray ban outlet testified at a congressional subcommittee hearing on food safety and security. "I was the only one who had anything nice to say about China," he says. Asked about his political ambitions, the former president of UCLA’s Young Republicans club doesn’t demur: "I’d like to be ambassador to China."
Rice speaks fluent Mandarin and moves easily between China and California, where he returns every few weeks. He loves bone in rib eye steak as well as peppery Sichuan dishes, courtesy of his wife, May, a native of Chongqing. He’s a member of the predominantly black West Angeles Church of God in Christ on Crenshaw Boulevard, and he grows his left hand pinky fingernail long, like the aristocracy in the Qing Dynasty.
A $300 an hour executive coach from Orange County helps Rice to be a better team leader and balance his introvert tendencies with the need to be assertive.
As a manager in China, "you have to deal more indirectly," says Thomas Needham, president of Global Executive Resources. "But it’s easy to go too far in that." Needham, who splits his time between Shanghai and Newport Beach, says Rice is learning to be more direct as he develops his
cheap ray bans local staff. "This is a market where you have to learn to be tough."
Rice was born in Newport Beach, grew up in Costa Mesa and went to UCLA, majoring in political science. In the summer of his junior year in 1987, he was among the first group of exchange students from UCLA to China. After graduation, he took a job as a bank officer for Wells Fargo in Westwood, making $22,000 a year. Two years later, he accepted an invitation from Kunming University to work as an English teacher.
Rice says he knew only three Chinese words when he got there: hello, goodbye and too expensive. "I came here because beer was cheaper than water," he says with a hearty laugh. A year later, he married May; his Chinese rapidly improved.Articles Connexes：

"It’s good to put them into play. Good to get the defence right too.
"We know we’ve got the attack, we’ve just got to get the defence right."
It was also a good day for Vidler.
He polled the two points in the NDL B to sit in equal second on the table with Narrabri’s Dillon Walford and Jacob Booby and Oxley Digger second grade coach Damien Allan.
Nean and Lachlan Cameron, who polled the three points in Narrabri’s amazing comeback win at Gunnedah, share the B lead with first round leaders Shane Wadwell and Tom Hine.Articles Connexes：
Does God Exist
"I don believe in God. I believe in something, just not in God".
When questioned about their belief in God, a lot people seem to have a very narrow view of what God is supposed to be, inextricably linked to organised religion. When they cannot reconcile that narrow view with their own belief system they state that they do not believe in God and therefore have no relationship with the divine. That relationship may still be desired, as it could bring security, unconditional love, support at times of need and a sense of belonging, but it would constitute a lie to oneself and can therefore not be maintained. Many who claim they are non believers however, are still left with the feeling that there is something bigger than ourselves, something they would like to connect to at some level, just not within the traditional context of organised religion.
Organised religion generally poses the personal God, usually male, an omnipotent (all powerful) being who rules the world and who, by allowing human beings the freedom of choice, also allows the existence of His Antagonist, the Devil. This God wants His subjects to come to Him of their own free will, but when they don they will spend eternity in the flames of Hell. There is only one life and it must be lived
fake Michael Kors by God rules. Within Christianity, there are ways of purging sins, through confession and true repentance, in which case an officially assigned representative of God can grant you forgiveness and cleanse your soul. If you can not get access to such a representative of God before you die, tough luck, you die and go to Hell whether you are repentant or not. Up until very recently, the Catholic church did not allow stillborn babies into heaven, they had to stay in for eternity because they were not baptised before death. ( is a place just outside Heaven, away from Hell but also away from the presence of God.)
I personally believe that this is a very limited view of God. priest) acting on his behalf. This God is not omnipresent (present everywhere at the same time) either: he is absent in Limbo, absent in Hell for eternity and absent until access has been granted through baptism, again performed by an officially assigned human representative. Choice is relative, here: do as I say, or you will burn in Hell for eternity After death, this God refuses shelter to anyone who has not abided by his rules; the concept of forgiveness is pretty short lived. Access to heaven is, up to a certain point, simply luck of the draw. It is not granted on the basis of your contribution to the world as a caring, loving, non judgemental human being, who is never afraid of helping out other people, and making right and just decisions, rather than ones driven by personal gain. This may play a part, but not the most important one. Access to heaven is gained mainly by baptism, worship on Sunday, by praying and reading your bible, by telling God you think he great, you love him and can live without him. So if you happen to be born in a place that has never heard of this God; if you die alone; if you cannot get access to one of those representatives before you die, who can grant forgiveness for your sins and cleanse your soul; if you die angry with God because you have been hurt and abused, you are not allowed to be with God. You go to Hell.
Life in this context is not a process of growing: it is a cruel and unfair test, with most people in this world seriously disadvantaged, or even incapable of passing, through circumstances beyond their control.
Organised religions are frameworks, encompassing theological theories about the nature of the divine, usually represented as absolute truths, and rules about approaching and incorporating the divine into one life, usually predicting dire consequences if these rules are not adhered to. The most important thing to understand about organised religions is that they have to keep their institutions alive and as such it is within their best interest to stipulate worship through their facilities, using their people. The need to be needed in order to survive must prevail, because otherwise, they will cease to exist. That is why giving money to religious institutions, in collects or as gifts, is considered a divine duty, why one can only receive true salvation through the institutions and why members are ordered to keep coming back, every morning in the past, and now, as most congregations are waning, at least once a week. Institutions, at their best, do wonderful things. Through them, wonderful people help other people in wonderful ways. But they remain organisations whose belief structures and divine rules are coloured by a need to survive.
I believe that the problem many people seem to have with the concept of God could be due to a failure of organised religions to move with the times, theologically. Many individual representatives of the churches do not subscribe to the idea of hell as they used to, nor to the idea of God as a vengeful, punishing force. Many even acknowledge the possibility of a relationship with God outside the confounds of church and traditional worship, but in essence, the churches still put forward an imposing patriarchal society in all aspects of religious life: a personal male God, benevolent father, head of the household, prescribing a framework of morals and lifestyle rules and restrictions as well as regular worship within religious institutions. The feminine is still entirely absent from the divine. Mary has never been granted divinity; she may be the of God but she is still considered human. The archangels are male; Jesus is male. Nobody in this divine family
replica Michael Kors outlet has ever had sex because sex, although quite necessary for the survival of the human race (we can not all achieve conceptions is still dirty and, at the heart of it, sinful. At the heart of most religious life is still worship, rather than love for one another in day to day life. Why would God care so much about being worshipped and thanked all the time? Does he
replica Michael Kors handbags have such a big ego?
Monotheism is the existence of a single omnipresent, omniscient (all knowing), omnipotent deity, or God. It is claimed
Michael Kors outlet that Christianity is monotheistic, but there are some problems with this claim. In practice we do not see an omnipotent and omnipresent God, as discussed earlier in this article. His omniscience is questionable also. Firstly, his perspective is limited by his
Cheap Michael Kors handbags sex: he is male and therefore lacks female perspective. Gen 5.1 2: . When God created man, he made them in the likeness of God. But even if we are to take the bible as written by fallible people, rather than God himself, it is still hard to sustain the notion that this God is truly monotheistic.
So why is this an issue at all? Well, it is an issue because there is an inherent contradiction in organised religion. We are told on the one hand that this God is omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient, but on the other hand, the entire frameworks prescribed to us by organised religions tell us that he is none of these things. The theology limits God power, God understanding, God knowledge, God reach. The fact is, that many people who claim they believe in God but believe in something believe in God as something much more than that.
True monotheism, which Christianity claims to be but is not, encompasses a God that is truly omniscient, neither male nor female, and at the same time, both; a God that is truly omnipotent, who controls all and yet nothing because the world would run this way because there is no other way; a God that is omnipresent, who is all things and yet, nothing, because the very nature of being is already finite. This God is past, present
cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet and future, and all at the same time because this God is time and beyond time. This God is so all encompassing that we cannot escape it, no matter how we are or how much we deny its existence. To deny this God would be to deny ourselves. This God does not need or demand worship, nor praise or prayer, because this God has no ego. Rather, we are the ones that need prayer, in order to connect back with what is true. Connecting to this God would mean connecting with what needs to be, to embrace life. Hell is merely an illusion, a state of denial, an absence, rather than an active force of being. Hell does not truly exists because God is omnipresent and therefore a place without God can not exist.
So in answer to the main question: does God exist, we might say this: the concept of God as an all encompassing
replica Michael Kors handbags thing, or life itself in all shapes and forms, embraces any view of the world around us. There is no limit to what you can believe or disbelieve. We know so little and we are so little, in this world. One might say that angels and ghosts and fairies do not exist, because there is no proof. There is even less proof that they don exist. One might say that reincarnation is just an inability to accept that when we dead, that it, we really not that important. On the other hand, not believing it might
Michael Kors handbag outlet just be an excuse not to learn what we need to learn, because if we don we will have to in the next life. The existential doubt of the existence of God has always struck me as slightly odd. The sun rises every day, doesn it? You are breathing, aren you? Do you deny the existence of the universe, just because we can not measure it, just because we do not understand?
So what about that relationship with God? How can you connect to all these things at the same time, and why would you bother if you don believe in the grey man on the cloud?
Well, the answer is simple. You don have a relationship with God for God, that would be ridiculous. You have a relationship with God or divine for you, in order to find a moment of peace and tranquillity and in order to feel connected and in control in a very demanding, stressful world. Addressing God in those brief moments does not automatically mean you believe God is a man on a cloud. You could pray, you could talk to God when no one can hear you, write a letter to God, do yoga, meditate, take some quiet time of contemplation. You won be lying to yourself. You can have your theological cake and eat it. And at its best, maybe that is what organised religion manages to offer to some of us: an almostm tangible relationship with something that is ultimately beyond definition.

Top 7 Ways to Get Your Audience
Michael Kors handbag outlet Actively Involved
The most successful speaking events involve far more than action from the speaker, however stimulating his or her content and delivery might be. Speeches that grab and keep attention, stimulate agreement, and generate the speaker’s desired results happen only when the presenter mixes action with interaction. Although audiences in prior generations might have
cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet been content with sitting passively and listening stoically for extended periods, contemporary listeners are more likely to prefer participating openly and energetically. Here are the top 7 ways to make that happen.
Publicize Your Presentation as a Participatory Event
Have your host announce in newsletters and e mails, "Our keynote speaker will bring us a highly interactive presentation about how we can strengthen our customer service." Encourage your host to repeat that description in every reminder.
Solicit Audience Opinions About Your Topic and Its Relevance
Here’s how: From your host, get the names, phone numbers, and e mail addresses of at least four of the group’s most respected
michael kors handbags outlet members. Ask
fake Michael Kors your host to alert them that you will contact them. During your conversations, say: "What you just said would help me get an important point across during my presentation. During my speech, could I please call on you to repeat what you just said to me?" Fortunately, almost everyone will consent. This guarantees that several key people will
cheap Michael Kors stand and speak, which will prompt others to voice their reactions
Tell Your Host Which Seating Arrangement Will Foster Discussion
Avoid traditional theatre seating, where people see the back of the heads in front of them, rather than faces. Ideally, aim for round tables seating 5 7 people. While many attendees would be too reticent to speak in front of 300 audience members, sharing thoughts at a small table won’t seem intimidating.
fake Michael Kors Your Host Furnish Necessary Materials
Specifically request pens, pencils, and note pads. This way you won’t cause disorder when you say, "The group at
Michael Kors discounts each table has ten minutes to make a list of seven improvements the company can make in our monthly staff meetings."
Keep PowerPoint Reliance to a Minimum
Yes, PowerPoint has advantages, such as reinforcing your main points and showing colorful illustrations. Still, the audience cannot focus on the screen and relate to each other at the same time.
Remind Your Audience in Your Opening Comments That You Expect Participation
"Every announcement you read about my presentation emphasized that this session will be interactive. That means you will do more than just sit and listen. There’s no way I came here with all the best ideas about our topic, so I’m eager along with your organization’s leaders to have your help in facing tough issues, solving problems, and charting fresh directions."
Answer Every Comment With Appreciation and Support
Remember, even a well meaning, lighthearted sarcastic remark could sound demeaning. Even though you smile and chuckle when you quip, "Now where did you get a crazy idea like that?" the audience could assume you are belittling the responder. Always react with upbeat appraisals like these: "Great idea, tell us what would be the first step we should take to make that happen." "That’s a novel strategy, one I haven’t heard from any other group.Articles Connexes：

10 Ways to Make Your Business Stand Out
No, before any of those things will really have any impact on your business you’ve got to uncover and communicate a way in which your business is different from every other business that says they do what you do. You’ve got to get out of the commodity business. You’ve got to stake your claim on a simple idea or position in the mind of your prospective clients.
Here’s what I mean. I have a client that provides custom computer programming. Essentially, they use programming languages to build custom applications for businesses. What they do is often hard to explain and

fake oakley wholesale Coaching is a unique blend of training and programming and, here’s the key, no one else in their business is offering anything like it. Prospects like the sound of it and are asking to know more. It’s too early to tell but I suspect this point of difference will open a lot of doors for them.
Product Can you offer a product that is so unique or even trendy that your business is associated with that offering? Or, can you extend a product and offer a valuable service to make the product more
cheap oakleys useful to the customer.
Service Same goes for a service. Many times this can be the packaging of a service as a product. Consulting is often delivered on an hourly basis. Packaging a consulting engagement based on an outcome, with defined deliverables and fixed package price is a very effective way to differentiate a service offering. Don’t forget to give the service a powerful name!

Market Niche Carve out an industry or two and become the most dominant player serving that industry. A really nice bonus to this approach is you can usually raise your prices dramatically when you specialize in this manner.
Offer Can you become known by an offer you make? I know an accountant that offer his tax preparation clients a 100% refund on their preparation fee when they refer four new clients. They are the 100% refund tax guys.
Solve a Problem Is there something that prospects in your market fear or seem to believe is universal for what you do? If so, focus on communicating how you have the answer. Painless dentistry for example. I know a remodeling contractor who found that what his clients appreciated the most was the way his crews cleaned up at the end of the day. He began to promote the fact that he owned more ShopVacs then any other remodeling contractor on the planet.
Message of Value Many times there are things that you do that don’t get communicated. Extra that you provide or services you think should be included. Your positioning might just rest in more effectively communicating what you do. I know an office
fake oakleys furniture dealer that has adopted the message We Make Your Business More Valuable to communicate all the things they bring to the party. Now, everything they do is focused on delivering on that statement. Everyone else in the industry sells furniture.

Customer Service Everyone knows the story of over the top customer service provided by Nordstrom’s Create your own over the top customer response system and word of mouth advertising will flow liberally.

Clues to uncovering your difference
Look at your current clients. What common elements exist among your best clients? Interview your clients. See if they can tell you why they chose to work with, why they stay, why they refer? Study your competitors more closely. What do they do that you could do better, what don’t they offer they you could, how do they position themselves?Once you find your chosen strategy or combination of strategies to differentiate your business, all of your advertising and promotion should be centered around shouting
