India did well to find good replacements for Tendulkar Co: Chappell

One of the commentators on the Australia versus West Indies series cited the success of Adam Voges, with his debut Test ton at age 35, as an example of the strength of the country's cricket. Australia's need to turn to an advanced-aged cricketer in Voges - and others like him previously - is an indication the system is failing to produce enough 'Test match ready' young batsmen. Australia was once a leading proponent of the "pick 'em young and watch 'em flourish," philosophy.

Article 370's Myths versus Reality of Jammu Kashmir

Hardly a day goes by when one doesn't come across a wide range of opinions on the so called benefits of Article 370 to Kashmir. A constitutional provision crafted to protect safeguard the interests of the subjects of the Jammu Kashmir though has turned out to be a bigger political divide than the Berlin Wall. The relevance of the article 370 in the present social structure of the state is being questioned for a range of reasons and the foremost being, what good the article could do with the state during the past 65 years, since its acceptance by the constituent assembly on October 17, 1949. There is no denial to the fact that the constitutional provision created under article 370 to grant special status to the state of Jammu Kashmir was a handy work of the then Prime Minister of Jammu Kashmir  Jb.

Let's face it, a lot of people love Diane Von Furstenberg and want to know where to get cheap DVF dresses.

 Von Furstenburg really is the mother of the wrap dress, which was born in the 1970s during the disco era. She started her wrap dress company with $30,000 dollars and began to rock the design world with her iconic dresses that were long enough to wrap the body in a figure loving way. That is why DVF is so loved, it's because the wrap dress looks great on a size 0 and even very beautiful and flattering on a size 16. Note, I know her dresses typically only go up to a 14, but when I was a size 16 (I've since lost about 40 pounds) I could rock a 14 wrap style dress. Yes, it's THAT forgiving.

And though these designer dresses can run from a few hundreds dollars to a thousand dollars, many women want to know where to find cheap DVF wrap dresses on sale. Luckily, to get a Diane Von dress on the cheap, you only need to look as far as a few known online places and even a few less known offline places as well.

 Discount DVF wrap dresses can be found in a variety of places some may really surprise you.

 Top Places to Get A Great DVF Dress on the Cheap:

Ebay: So I'll start with the most obvious place. If you love DVF, you can often get her iconic wrap and sheath dresses on Ebay. Start by just searching for ongoing bids and bid on the dresses you like most. Then do searches on misspellings. Diane Von Furstenberg's name is often misspelled. Von Frostenburg is a popular misspelling, as is Frustenburg. I've also seen DVF dresses described as Diane Von. Check all possible spellings, many times people who list DVF dresses have no idea what they are and what they are worth, making the possibility to score one quite easy when knowing a few tips and tricks.

Nordsrtom's Rack: The rack dresses have been known to be sometimes 85 to 95% off. And these places are often great for getting cheap DVF dresses. Nordstrom's Rack is often where items are taken when they have been altered or slightly damaged. Note that any alternation or deviations on these designer dresses can often be fixed and are well worth the price. Call around to various Nordstrom Rack's in your area to make sure they carry the cheap DVF dresses.

Consignment Shops: Consignment shops are well regarded and well known to carry cheap designer dresses. And you maybe able to score a cheap Diane Von dress. Again, so you don't have to scramble or really dig through all the inventory, call ahead first to see if they can give you a quick break down of designers and prices.

Thrift Stores: Of course this one is probably a real no brainier too. BUT you must go to a thrift store in a higher end area. This is important. You won't find a cheap DVF dress in a thrift store in the middle of no where, population 2. Stick to the swankier parts of town and be prepared to spend most of the day looking through high end thrift store DVF dresses.

 There you have it.

I'm sure you love Diane Von V as much as I do. Know what are your cheap DVF dresses story?

We have all heard of alternative practitioners such as acupuncturists, massage therapists, homeopathic practitioners and chiropractors. Chiropractors are now the leading alternative medicine practitioners according to latest surveys.

Chiropractor care has become distinctly favored among millions of Americans today. Patients who suffer from fibromyalgia have given praises to chiropractic care for decreasing their chronic pain and restoring their health back to normal to once again live a quality life.

Parents too now a days are adding chiropractic care into their childrens healthcare. In 2007 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study displayed results that chiropractic care was the most common form of alternative medicine used by children today.

Yes, chiropractors do concentrate on the muscle skeletal area. However, they also do treat other conditions such as chronic fatigue, asthma, headaches, tennis elbow and more. Chiropractic care is the safe and all natural treatment by restoring your body back to its normal health.

The listings of chiropractors can go on and on in some areas especially in those of large cities. If you are new to chiropractic care it can be difficult to decide which chiropractic care practitioner you should see. Since I write a lot of alternative medicine daily on the internet and for print magazines, below are some of my picks for the chiropractors that I feel would offer a person the most benefits not only in chiropractic care but personal attitude as being ready and willing to listen to their patients complaints, friendly atmosphere and more.

Watercolor is one the best mediums to work on. It is less messy, easy to mix, dries fast unlike oil painting. These are the basic things that are commonly known but what sets apart a piece of painting is not just limited to the colors or how one mixes them. There are several other factors that influence in making the painting look and feel better. If you have enrolled yourself for the watercolor classes, you would come to know of all the tips and secrets. For those who are interested in watercolor painting but are pursuing it just as a hobby, there are a few tips that you can consider to get better results-

Paper - In watercolor painting, the quality of the paper matters as much as the quality of the color. The most important characteristic of a good quality paper is its absorption capacity. The paper that has the right degree of absorbency helps in the colors settling smoothly on the surface and helps in reflecting more light. White papers are always better than colored papers as they reflect the maximum amount of light and gives a brighter image than the colored papers. Prefer acid free papers as they improve durability of the painting.

Colors - The basic palette must have a range of colors and should have a good choice of opaque as well as transparent colors and of weak tinting and strong tinting colors. Permanent colors are always preferred and to be able to learn mixing techniques and adding effects, one should join watercolor classes Melbourne.

Mediums - Various mediums are used to get different effects and creates different techniques. Some of the mediums that one can work with are;

Lifting preparation - medium must be first applied on paper and allowed to dry and later on apply colors on it.

Texture medium - Can be applied directly on the paper or can be mixed with watercolors first.

Permanent masking medium - Can be applied directly to the white paper, to dried washes on the paper, or mix it with water colors. Permanent masking medium is not removable.

Granulation medium - this medium adds to dimensions to flat areas, it is most used in landscapes.

Brushes - there are a number of varieties when it comes to brushes. The brushes come in different shapes and sizes and the quality of their hair differ. The shapes of the brushes are round, flat, bright, angular, filbert. The different types of wash brushes are mop and hake. The detail brushes are spotters and riggers. Materials, the brushes are made of either natural or synthetic material. The brushes made of natural materials are expensive. Some examples are Kolinsky sable (absorbs colors and retains shape) made of winter coat pelt of male kolinsky; red sable, made from different species of marten; squirrel brushes are very soft, goat brushes, ox brushes a bit rougher than squirrel and goat. The sizes of the brushes range from #0 to #24.
