Hood: Resist impulse to jump to conclusions

4 Comments | Leave a Comment


As of Jan. 31, state government had collected $12.1 billion in General Fund revenue and expended $11.2 billion on education, Medicaid and other state programs since the beginning of the 2015-16 fiscal year. In other words, it ran a cash surplus of about $900 million.

While state redistricting and national politics are getting most of the headlines right now, you can be sure that North Carolina politicos are well aware of the current budget numbers and their implications. The industries, vendors, and public employees who pocket most state expenditures are ramping up their lobbying efforts for the legislative session that begins in April. Incumbent lawmakers are drafting their own plans, both fiscal and political, for the coming election-year budget.

My advice remains the same as it was this time last year, when North Carolina’s fiscal situation seemed dire: don’t jump to conclusions.

Women usually steal the

Women usually steal the spotlight when it comes to fashion, but anytime a man hits the red carpet in something other than a black suit, it can become a Coach Outlet Store Online fashion statement in its own right. Indeed, the “Jurassic World” premiere was full of stylish men, including B.D. Wong and Joe Manganiello — though star Vincent D’Onofrio may have missed the mark. Men can be fashionable too! The “Jurassic World” star coach factory deviates from the typical red-carpet suit with a brown bomber jacket over a too-cute polka-dot top at the film’s Hollywood premiere. SJP, the newest model for jean brand Jordache, is pretty as a picture in this floral Elie Saab gown at coach handbags the Irish Repertory Theatre’s YEATS: The Celebration gala in NYC. The 15-year-old “Mad Men” alum has actresses twice her age green with envy over this bow-embellished, emerald Delpozo frock at an LA screening of “Live From New York!” Not everyone could Longchamp Sale sport this geometric Peter Pilotto frock, but Harris’ chiseled frame wears it well at the European premiere of “Entourage” at Vue West End in London.Thanks to a slew of recent cases of intellectual property theft and designer knockoffs, NYC’s Fordham coach outlet online Law School has stepped up to the plate to offer the world’s first degree in fashion law. Meanwhile, Kanye West and Kendall Jenner team up for their first co-cover of Vogue Japan.-Fordham Law School’s professor Susan Scafidi, creator of the school’s Longchamp Outlet Fashion Law Institute, has teamed up with Diane von Furstenberg to offer the world’s first degree in fashion law. Already approved by the American Bar Association, the program will begin accepting applicants Tuesday for classes starting in fall 2015. “There needed michael kors purses to be a field of fashion law where people were trained. Fashion companies have in-house counsel, but they aren’t specialized in fashion . . . A fashion lawyer can understand, empathize with, and act on behalf of clients in a technical and specialized michael kors handbags industry,” Scafidi says.-Kendall Jenner’s hardly recognizable in her Givenchy get-up on the cover of Vogue Japan, which also features the brand’s designer Riccardo Tisci and devotees such as Jessica Chastain, Joan Smalls and Yeezus himself. -Can crop tops cause infertility? Can coach factory outlet high heels cause nerve damage in the feet? Doctors speak out on how some of the season’s hottest style trends could have lifelong implications that are assuredly unfashionable. -Who is Alessandro Michele? The relatively unknown designer took over the helm of Longchamp Bag Gucci as the brand’s newest creative director in early 2015. Here’s everything you need to know.-Burberry has just secured a grandkid of the Rolling Stones as the newest face of the brand, but it’s not Georgia May Jagger. Keith Richards’ granddaughter Coach Bags Ella Rose Richards will appear in the brand’s autumn-winter 2015 campaign, after having previously walked in their shows. If you were getting the transformation of a lifetime, what would you choose to wear?And if you were Caitlyn Jenner, trying to Coach Outlet Store telegraph your womanhood for the first time in public at 65 years of age, how would you express that?For her big reveal as a new woman, Caitlyn Jenner reached for familiar touchstones of beauty.In an outing no doubt as thrilling as michael kors it was terrifying, what ended up providing comfort were references that were universal and deeply ingrained in the American style lexicon, from ’50s bad girls to iconic movie stars and ’80s power babes.And oh what fun she had!For the all-important cover, michael kors outlet she went old-school Hollywood glamour. I have a picture of my mother from the early ’50s having a snowball fight in the dead of winter wearing the same thing: a white satin strapless bathing suit, like she’s on the set of michael kors outlet clearance an Esther Williams Busby Berkeley number, but she was just blowing off steam during nursing school. They knew how to do glamorous then.And Caitlyn would know that, too. The bathing suit covers all the metaphorical bases: She’s as naked as she Longchamp Outlet would probably ever want to get to the world. It’s also part debutante (hey, it’s her coming-out party) and part virgin (that, too).Say what you want about the Kardashian women — but at the end of the day, we all coach outlet could take a few beauty cues from the attention-loving clan. From perfectly contoured cheeks and pouty lips to dramatic eyelashes and soft silky tresses, these Kardashian-approved essentials will keep you looking glamourous and flawless all through the steamy summer months.Achieve the Longchamp Bags Kardashians’ sculpted cheeks with this Tweezerman set, which includes a mini-pointed foundation brush, a mini-contour foundation brush and a blending sponge. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit is a palette that comes with six blendable formulas — ideal for sculpting and Longchamp defining your best features.To re-create Kendall Jenner’s power brows apply the wax using a rounded brush, starting from the inner brow and moving outward to create definition and long-lasting hold. Next, apply the brow powder using the brush’s slanted end, which coach purses grips to the wax and allows it to hold and define.“At a certain point, if someone feels they’ve reached the limits of what fabric can do, I suppose they attempt to see how it goes without [it],” quips Jessica Morgan, michael kors outlet online one half of popular fashion-critiquing duo the Fug Girls of gofugyourself.com. “Personally, I think it’s a desire for attention. Because you don’t see, say, Anna Wintour going to the Met Ball in a sheer dress.” michael kors outlet online sale Heather Cocks, Morgan’s partner in crime, agrees: “I’m sure some designer somewhere is crafting a statement about how it’s the design and a woman’s body working in concert to create art. But that would be elegant b.s. They want publicity, pure and simple.”The motives behind “naked” evening wear haven’t always been so banal and, well, transparent. At least two recently published think pieces on the topic michael kors bags have been quick to point out the trend’s pop cultural antecedent: The skin-baring Jean Louis dress Marilyn Monroe famously flaunted to sing “Happy Birthday” to John F. Kennedy in 1962. Back then, peekaboo flesh beyond the bedroom was fresh territory, at Longchamp Handbags least in Hollywood, and Monroe, contrary to the ditsy stereotype she invented for herself, used racy ensembles and hypersexualized femininity to craft a complex, convention-challenging persona.
