Crib Bumper Safety Tips

Crib bumpers have been the source of a lot of controversy in recent years. There are supporters who believe that bumpers are a great addition to their child's bed and there are detractors who believe that they are a safety hazard with the potential to seriously hurt or even kill a child. Crib bumpers became popular because until fairly recently, crib manufacturers had no regulations on how they designed and built cribs.

Tricorder designs go open source: can detect magnetic fields, reveal Trekkies (video)

Open source tricorder design

We're still working on our own plans to grab that $10 million Tricorder X-Prize from Qualcomm and our progress has just been given a shot in the arm from Dr. Peter Jansen, who's released the designs for his tricorders. Making all the specifics open source, his Mark 2 model runs on Linux, while the hardware includes an ARM Atmel microcontroller squeezed into a clam-shell with two OLED touchscreens. Schematics, board layouts, and the firmware is all available at the source below and also includes the initial proof-of-concept device. The tricorders need six AAA to run and include sensors for temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, ambient light, distance and even magnetic fields. Dr. Jansen's hope is to make scientists out of everyone -- including your kids. That is, right after they ask you what Star Trek is.

David Cameron: Bristol 'needs a mayor' to be one of Britain's premier cities

BRISTOL will get a seat at the top table of England's leading cities – but only if residents vote for a mayor, the Prime Minister has said.

David Cameron announced that he would chair the new "Cabinet of Mayors", which would meet at least every six months to swap ideas and lobby ministers for extra powers.

The intervention was an attempt to persuade voters in Bristol and nine other cities to choose an elected mayor when they go to the polls on May 3.

Senior Conservatives believe Bristol and Birmingham represent their best chances of a Yes vote, with stronger opposition in northern cities like Manchester and Newcastle.

Mr Cameron was speaking at Downing Street yesterday after summoning delegations from the 'core cities' to press the case for a Yes vote and encourage more candidates to come forward.

He said: "I want to establish a cabinet of mayors and I would chair its first meeting. I want, when we have a good number of mayors around the country, to bring them together so we can swap ideas and experience and initiatives.

"We can really make sure that central government is not just helping to deliver these referendums, but is also going to deliver extra powers, extra resources to those cities and to those mayors, so they can get even more things done."

Calling for Yes votes, Mr Cameron said mayors would "change the political culture of Britain, with more great leaders in our cities, more economic dynamism".

He was joined in making the case by Lord Heseltine, a long-standing advocate of elected mayors, who urged the audience to "put your head above the parapet" and stand for office. He also said Bristol was "exactly the sort of city" that would suit an elected mayor.

London Mayor Boris Johnson described how he made the case for the capital to drum up foreign investment. Labour and Lib Dem politicians also spoke in favour.

Critics have questioned the need for the change and have pointed out that the public is being asked to "vote blind", with extra powers on offer to mayors only to be decided after the referendums.

There were around 14 delegates from Bristol, including city MPs Stephen Williams and Charlotte Leslie, who both back the case for a mayor. City council leaders, who have opposed the switch, were not represented at Number 10. Speaking afterwards, the rest of the Bristol contingent declared themselves fully behind the move to an elected mayor but few would consider standing for the post.

Andrew Kelly, of the Bristol Cultural Development Partnership, has been organising debates to raise awareness of the referendum and said he personally favoured a mayor.

Watershed boss Dick Penny said he had no plans to run but added that he had recently been convinced of the case for a mayor because the government would only be prepared to strike deals for new powers with cities that had one in place.

Marti Burgess, who runs the Lakota nightclub in Stokes Croft, is part of the city's Yes campaign but will not be putting herself forward.

She said: "A mayor would be a point of contact for all the disparate communities."

Architect George Ferguson said he would consider running as an independent candidate, saying "a staggering number of people" had told him to put himself forward.

Peter Abraham, leader of the Tory group on the council, would also not rule himself out of running for the Conservative ticket, but insisted all his efforts were focused on securing a Yes vote.

Nigel Hutchings of the Chamber of Commerce said the business community "stood firmly behind" the case for an elected mayor, adding: "It will produce stability and growth."

Christmas fair axed as volunteers pull out

THE death knell has finally sounded for the future of Nailsea's Christmas fair after a voluntary group considering taking over the running of the event pulled out.

The former organising committee of the fair were in talks with Nailsea Lions Club with the view to it taking over the festive extravaganza.

Last year's fair had to be cancelled because the Christmas fair committee, made up of traders and volunteers from the local community, failed to attract enough helpers to run it.

It had been hoped that the Lions club would take over the event and the fair, which takes place on the first Friday each December, could be revived.

But now representatives from the Lions club have written to committee chairman, Gilly Chu, saying it does not have the resources to run the event.

Mrs Chu said: "We had hoped that the Lions club would be able to take over the fair.

"But they have now written to us to let us know that with everything else which the club is committed to, it did not have the manpower to take on the organisation of such an event.

"This is a real shame as the fair was a great community event which really brought the town together.

"Unless someone else comes forward and takes over the running of it, the future of the fair looks very bleak and it is unlikely it will be revived."

The event, a popular feature in the town's festive calendar, has been running for 15 years.

Each year the town centre is closed off for stalls selling a range of festive goodies and food.

A fairground is set up in Clevedon Road car park, with smaller traditional rides along the High Street.

There is also live entertainment with bands setting up on a stage at Somerset Square and on the forecourt of the Royal Oak pub.

The organising committee is now planning to talk to Nailsea Town Council about it holding funds raised from previous fairs in a trust account for five years.

The money would be available to any community group or individuals who come up with a business plan to run the festive event.

Mrs Chu added: "There is money in an account which could be used to assist with the running of the street fair.

"Any group which wanted to take it over would also have to fundraise to ensure the event continues.

"The money would be held in a trust account for five years and then, if no one has still come forward to run the fair, the funds could then be distributed to good causes."

Anyone interested in taking over the event can contact Mrs Chu at Gilly's Cafe in the High Street.

TV 'Mad Men' real? I don't think so

Syrian government accepts U.N. envoy Kofi Annan's plan to forge peace and end violence, Annan's spokesman says.
By George Lois, Special to CNN
March 27, 2012 -- Updated 0952 GMT (1752 HKT)
Jon Hamm plays an ad executive in the AMC TV series,
Jon Hamm plays an ad executive in the AMC TV series, "Mad Men."
  • George Lois, renowned adman, says "Mad Men" is nothing like ad world of '60s
  • He says the show is riddled with incorrect stereotypes: rampant drinking, adultery, carousing
  • He says real "Mad Men" hardworking rule-breakers, expressing roiling counterculture
  • Lois: Yes, show is drama, not documentary, but for the record, real Mad Men were nothing like it

Editor's note: George Lois, the influential adman and art director, is widely known for his 92 iconic Esquire covers, created in the 1960s and early 1970s, many of which are now housed at the Museum of Modern Art. His new book is "Damn Good Advice (for people with talent)"

(CNN) -- Since the debut of "Mad Men," some have called me "The Real Mad Man," with Don Draper (played by Jon Hamm) thought of as my alter ego. But "Mad Men" misrepresents the advertising industry of my time by ignoring the dynamics of the Creative Revolution that changed the world of communications forever.

From where I sit, claiming this exasperating show is even remotely representative of the times we lived through would be like trying to show "Dynasty" on the History Channel! "Mad Men" is nothing more than the fulfillment of every possible stereotype of the early 1960s bundled up nicely to convince consumers that the sort of morally repugnant behavior exhibited by its characters -- with one-night-stands and excessive consumption of Cutty Sark and Lucky Strikes -- is glamorous and "vintage."

It was not like that. That dynamic period of counterculture in the 1960s found expression on Madison Avenue through a new creative generation -- a rebellious coterie of art directors and copywriters who understood that visual and verbal expression were indivisible, who bridled under the old rules that consigned them to secondary roles in the ad-making process dominated by noncreative hacks and technocrats.

George Lois
George Lois

In the very first week of the 1960s, after a successful year as an award-winning art director at the legendary Doyle Dane Bernbach, I left. And with two copywriters as partners, started what was unthinkable at the time, the first ad agency to have the name of an art director in its masthead, and later, the first to go public.

It was a testy time to be a graphic designer like me who had the rage to communicate and, to create icon rather than con. And, unlike the TV "Mad Men," we worked full, exhausting, joyous days: pitching new business, creating ideas, "comping" them up, storyboarding them, selling them, photographing them, and directing commercials. And our only "extracurricular activity" was chasing fly balls and dunking basketballs on our agency softball and basketball teams!

'Mad Men' reflect on success, fashion

The instant success of our trailblazing firm inspired a handful of other creative groups to form agencies and join our passionate revolution as we created advertising and imagery that caught people's eyes, penetrated their minds, warmed their hearts, and caused them to act -- raising the bar of mass communication throughout the world.

Of course the producers of "Mad Men" are making TV drama and not documentary. For the record, please know that I, and the other real Mad Men, bear no resemblance to their lineup of talentless hacks who carouse the halls of the fictitious Sterling Cooper ad agency. And even if I wanted to have an adulterous affair (which I definitely did not, Rosie) who had the time?

Danny doubles up to leave Bishopston one point away from wrapping up the title

BISHOPSTON United A Under-13s emerged with three vital points from a hard-fought top-of-the-table clash with Thornbury Town A.

After the visitors had snatched the lead via a raking right-foot shot over the helpless Dexter Kendall, Bishopston stormed back to win 3-1 with excellent goals from Danny Jafar (2) and Gabe Kerfoot.

Eddie Marshall, Paul Trescculli and Oliver Williams all played their part well with industrious build-up play.

The result means that Bishopston will go to Shirehampton this weekend needing just a point to confirm them as champions.

Golden Hill Sonics pipped Gordano Valley Giants 2-1, while in the B Division, Southmead Under-13s got off to a flying start and didn't look back as they racked up a 9-1 victory over Thornbury B.

Ben Trueman and Gudjon Thors both scored twice, while further goals from Jonathan Paisley, Perran Blundel, Josh Bowering, Scott Ford and Ryan Cainey wrapped up a convincing win.

Strong performances from Bowering, Pieter Beechgood, Dylan Hudd and man-of-the-match Ford gave Southmead a solid platform.

Josh Butt hit a four-timer as St Andrews Under-13s maintained their 100 per cent cup record with a resounding 6-0 win over Tytherington Rocks Youth.

Butt opened the scoring after nine minutes with a glancing header from a William Stanley free-kick, before making it 2-0 with a deft lob after good work by Omari Sharpe.

Ned O'Keeffe added another before the break and, with Matthew Hazell marking tightly and Matthew Richmond busy in midfield, Butt added two more in the second half and O'Keeffe tapped home Saints' sixth.

At Under-11s level, Golden Hill Sonics turned in a dominant display to beat Rockleaze Rangers 4-0 on the road with two Jack Edwards strikes and singles from Dominic Robbins and Finn McIver.

Buccaneers Reds were emphatic 7-0 victors at Brislington, while Buccaneers Whites won 4-1 at Westbury Park Foxes Greens.
