Absolute Exhibits. Exhibitions are built for putting your products, your services - your brand - on display. However, creating your own solution can be expensive. Designing and building your stand, printing the graphics, plus the labor involved in putting it all up and taking it all down all create increasing costs. And then there's the space required to store it all between trade shows, as well as the consideration that changes to marketing strategy and emphasis might require you to keep changing your stands, both in terms of layout, and the images used across them. ...

It is only the latest in the county's ongoing effort to enforce the nearly two-year-old ordinance. Since it was enacted in April , only two of about a dozen such establishments are fully licensed. Officially, it is characterizing the case as a First Amendment battle against sexual censors. Besides, the video booths alone qualify the business as sexually oriented, officials say. In legal filings, store manager Ken Greentree claims that Loveland did not dispute that ordinance interpretation when the two met in the August ... Read More
If you're between the ages of 25 and 40, and were active on the Internet before Facebook canonballed onto the social media scene, odds are you had a Myspace account. If you're like me, you meticulously managed your top-eight friends, decked out your profile page in some crude mishmash of background wallpapers and HTML layouts, and set things up so that Radiohead's "Climbing Up the Walls" would auto-play when someone clicked on your page, because it was important everyone knew you were an exceptionally obnoxious combination of angsty and sophisticated. Mercifully, the Myspace of our misspent youth is long gone. But you can still peep all the photos you uploaded to your profile back then. And family members. ... Read More
When I moved to North America last year, I expected to miss my family, friends and a good coffee — but never my deodorant. A month after I left home, the squat little bottle of roll-on I'd brought with me ran dry. When I went to the supermarket to stock up, I was confronted by a wall of armpit juice. There was every conceivable variety of deodorant: hypoallergenic deodorant, macho deodorant, feminine deodorant, stain-free deodorant, hour deodorant. But none of my deodorant, the one I've faithfully used for years, which apparently isn't available outside Australia. ... Read More
This just in: women masturbate! It's totally normal and healthy! Everyone does it! So, now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's talk about on-screen female masturbation scenes—which are pretty few and far between compared to their male equivalents because for some reason people get super uncomfortable with the idea that women like sex. Even now, this is considered pretty scandalous—so cheers to films and TV shows like Fleabag , Girls , The Deuce , and Reign for breaking taboos. ... Read More
The popular discourse about Asian martial arts has often been surrounded by an aura of esotericism, so pervasive that it even influenced the academic discussion to some degree. This article focuses on the frequently flawed philosophical and historical discourse surrounding the Asian martial arts. In particular, this study concentrates on the academic discussions of the Japanese and Korean martial arts, and the search for a philosophical framework compatible with historical narratives. The Japanese created a romantic but also nationalistic martial arts narrative that aligned with the ideals of the Meiji Restoration. This romanticized image was naively accepted in the West, often imported along with esoteric ideas of the East. ... Read More
