The silver grey colour is so sophisticated and classy. The netted and brocade detail on the top half of this dress gives it beautiful detail front and back. It is structured so you can go without a bra if you wish. You then have the softness of the bottom half of the dress which gives this outfit movement and floatiness. The brocaded jacket is beautiful and gives the outfit a perfect finishing touch. Both dress and jacket look great worn separately for less formal occasions.

These 13 Cat-Furniture Pieces Make Your Home More Chic Than Your Actual Furniture

From cat-inspired fashion collections to cat themed luxury luggage, felines have gone vogue. Yet the reality for day-to-day cat owners feels closer to plastic neon toys and beloved cardboard boxes than an ultra-chic aesthetic. And while we’d do practically anything for our favorite feline friends, at some point every cat person wonders how they can make their space pet friendly without sacrificing stylish décor?
That’s why we’ve partnered with Tidy Cats to showcase thirteen stylish designs for your home, featuring furniture that merges art with cat-approved function from an array of accomplished designers and specialty manufacturers. Now you can have nice things and keep Puss happy too!

CURIO Modern Cat Litter Box

CURIO
Gone are the days of ugly litter boxes! Earn your cat’s affection (however fleeting), by giving them this handcrafted throne instead of that old plastic peasant tray. Feel your heart swell when your cat places its paw on yours to bless your offering. Besides, this high-quality side table is so darn cute, your friends and family are sure to “ooh and ahh” over the design just as much as you fawn over the kitty within it.
2 Catissa Geobed

Catissa
If you’re stuck under a sleeping cat that’s colonizing your personal space, consider it the highest honor. (But you might want to holler at your closest neighbor to order this cat bed before your limbs go numb). This ultra-modern den should arrive before the hunger pangs kick in, drawing your cat inside to catch up on its beauty sleep and releasing you from your duty as a human mattress. Your cat deserves the best, right? So make it easier for your kitty to live a life of luxury on the comfy sheepskin cushion.
3 Modern Cat Designs Litter Box Hider

Modern Cat Designs
When you’re feeling lonely and wondering where your favorite fur ball is hiding, you can entice the most secretive of cats out into the open with this designer cabinet. When your cat’s got to go, the entrance is accessible yet discreet. Afterwards, it’s an opportune moment to scoop up your kitty for a much-needed cuddle! Guests will be none the wiser when they stop by for a drink – you’re just going to want to make sure that they use a coaster around this end table!
4 Felt Cat Basket

elevele
Finding it difficult to type with a cat on your keyboard? Tripping to your doom every time your kitty snoozes in the middle of the hallway? Look no further than this artisanal cat bed. Place one next you to instantly lure your cat away from your distraction-free zone (but we know you’ll still reach for a pet every few minutes). Your cat will love to hang out in this homey wool basket! And the material is thick enough to stay put, so you can get a second one to fashionably store your cat’s legions of toys or all the knickknacks your cat fiendishly enjoys knocking off the table.
5 Sebastian Modern Cat Tree

Designer Pet Products
Let’s face it, your cat is likelier to have more exercise equipment than you do yet probably still prefers sprinting from room to room instead. While it’s always tempting to follow your cat around the house hoping to witness an adorable moment, it’s time to replace those bulky, unused contraptions. Your little lion can get much-needed exercise all in one elegant place with this feline jungle gym. Curb kitty boredom! With all the hiding nooks and scratching spots, even the most domestic of cats will go wild.
6 The Cube

Meyou Paris
Your cat can embrace a hygge lifestyle too with this cozy cocoon, all the while seriously amping up your own style cred. The cushy padding inside the sphere calls for long, slumberous cat naps, which may save you from that all-night meowing at your bedroom door. You may even get to turn the tables during the day when you reach inside to wake up your dozing kitty! On top of that, you won’t have to worry about claws ruining this statement piece — The Cube also functions as an alluring scratching post. Scratch away!
7 Oscar Cat Rest

Davies Decor
Cultured cats will dig the Neo-Futurist design of this cat rest. The wavy shape molds to your cat as it stretches out over the curves, causing every cat parent to seriously consider their kitty’s potential modeling career or Instagram fame. One thing’s for sure: You won’t be able to resist the photo op of your cat with this ultramodern creation, so be prepared to add another gazillion cat photos to the albums on your phone.
8 Poopoopeedo

SinDesign
Your cat will not want to follow you into your basic bathroom ever again after experiencing this supercool litter box. This eggshell-like refuge for your kitty’s unsightly deeds will conjure space-agey thoughts as you boast to anyone in proximity of its high-end French design. C’est tres chic! Plus, its name is just fun to say, again and again.
9 Contoure Modern Cat Tree

Contempocat
This cat perch is the ideal vantage point for your cat overlord to happily observe the daily wanderings of home life—or to judge that extra brownie you just ate. You can easily swap out those carpeted megastructures with this unusual design that could be mistaken for a bookshelf or a piece of art. Your kitty will spend hours ruling its dominion from above, ensuring you know who’s really in charge (and we wouldn’t have it any other way!).
10 Rondo Stand

pet interiors
Your feline friends will look so sophisticated inside this designer perch that you might catch yourself debating culture and philosophy aloud—and almost forgetting they can’t answer back. Truly classy cats will claim this leather-upholstered cavern as rightfully theirs, and the award-winning craftsmanship of this piece will exponentially upgrade your living space. So if your cats could talk, they would definitely sound debonair.
11 The Bank

Kattbank
Most kitties demand a sacred space for their litter box, so this clever bench is the optimal way to give finicky cats their privacy. All too often, however, the sand does not stay within the shrine, and while litter around the house may be your cat’s aesthetic choice, most cat owners prefer to contain the mess. That’s why cat behavior experts crafted the Kattbank to conceal the litter and keep your cat’s paws clean with a specially designed grid mat. This is a must-have for the fur-ball who demands personal space.  (Just try not to faint over the price.)
12 Bloq Eco

Binq Design
If your taste leans more shabby chic, then this is the cat bed of your dreams. What’s more, you’ll never lose your seat to a sneaky kitty again after standing up, because your cat will be too busy purring with pride within this gorgeously distressed side table. The inside cushion is an optimal resting spot, and your cat will look so comfortable that you may just cancel your plans to follow suit. Because let’s be real, our cats are our social lives!
13 Cat Console

Modernist Cat
Cat owners know the drill—double-side tape, thick blankets, plastic covers—anything to delay the inevitable destruction of furniture. But good news! There’s a way to minimize the war zone with this display shelf that’s actually meant for your cat’s claws. Your cat will spare your personal effects in favor of the replaceable scratch pad on this slender wall attachment. No more wincing at the sound of shredded upholstery. Hooray!

#Digital world has a darker side to it. #India is not a stranger to it. #Cybercrime has crossed the stages of viral and malware attacks to phishing and ransomware. This article details the mode of phishing attacks in India and it's growth. Until and unless an user is aware of the ways they can be duped, it is hard to contain cybercrime. Present day cybercrime is so sophisticated that innocent looking websites and emails cause so much pain to a casual user. Banks including Central bank (RBI) and credit cards issuers are alive to these frauds and forcing people to take precautionary measures. It is no more necessary just to fill card details and #CVV to complete a transaction. It additionally requires a secured #password or a #OTP (One Time Pin sent to registered phone). Similarly, netbanking requires additional layer of answering pre-recorded personal questions and answers before completing the transaction. Gone are the days when just log in ID and password were used. The fight would go on, but the users and the cybercrime branch of police should be alive to the problem and act judiciously.

Are you fond of flashing a V sign in your selfies? So that you know, it’s not an innocuous habit as it seems. Researchers discovered that fingerprints can easily be copied and recreated from photographs taken up to 3 meters! (10 feet) away, and the peace sign is a wonderfully convenient way of displaying your digits. The smartphone cameras these days are so sophisticated that thieves can lift the tiniest details of your fingerprint just by going on the Internet, without even the need for particularly advanced technology.

Mind, unlike passwords, fingerprint technology is a lot harder to change once it’s been hacked.

Any third-rate politician who fails anywhere to explain away his failures now has a very convenient scapegoat, says George Szamuely, from the Global Policy Institute at London Metropolitan University.
The UK has no evidence Moscow is trying to undermine the democratic process in Britain, according to the UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson. However, Johnson did comment that the Kremlin has the ability to interfere in Britain's affairs if it chooses to do so.

Russian hacking claims, which started in the US with unsubstantiated accusations that Moscow hacked the Democratic National Committee and interfered in the presidential elections, has now moved overseas.

RT: Is it fair to continue making accusations about Russian meddling in other countries' political processes without providing any evidence?

Boris Johnson © Phil Noble‘No evidence’ Russia trying to disrupt UK democracy, but they can – Boris Johnson (VIDEO)
George Szamuely: I don’t think it is fair exactly, but ‘the Russians did it’ mantra is now the last refuge of a scoundrel. Any third-rate politician who fails anywhere can now point to the Russians or the malign influence of RT to explain away his failures. This little trick, now all politicians have battened on to it, started in the US, but now the Europeans have also battened on to it. It is nonsensical. And Boris Johnson of all people looks particularly foolish when he starts talking about this Russian interference in elections because one of the accusations made against the Russians was over Brexit. Since he was one of the leaders of the Brexit movement, I don’t think he is in a good position to then say “Well, it was all the Russians’ fault that Brexit passed.

RT: Why is Russia still being presented as a major threat?

GS: I think it has been part of the Western policy for decades, ever since the end of the Cold War that the Western powers seized on the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the momentary weakness of the Russians for a few years during the 1990s. The West seized on that moment to expand its power and influence as much as it could without thinking through that at some point Russia will recover. When Russia does recover, it will be very pissed off at seeing Western powers on its borders because it will see it as a legitimate and a very serious threat to its security, and the Western powers didn’t see it through. And now they are absolutely apoplectic at the fact that the Russians are making very legitimate points about the threat to their national borders.

RT: The media seems to take these allegations about Russia at face value. Isn't that a concern?

GS: Of course it is a big concern. And the amazing feature of all of this is that the media has not seriously considered the evidence for any of these ridiculous claims. They keep repeating about these seventeen intelligence agencies who have found without any dispute the Russians interfered in the 2016 presidential election. But they don’t present any evidence. Anybody can say “the Russians did it and we have all the evidence, but we're not going to show it to you.” Where is the evidence? And James R. Clapper, the director of National Intelligence under Obama, he first made the accusation against the Russians in October of last year. Three months later, the intelligence agencies came out with this report that offered nothing, not one scrap of evidence. Half of it was a warmed over report about RT that was written in 2012. That is the sum and substance of their case against the Russians.

The CIA is one the most sophisticated in the world, the technology is very sophisticated. But the latest WikiLeaks revealed it is porous. It can be hacked into. And others could do that. And the CIA, the American Intelligence community, does not protect its own secrets, does not protect itself very well. So, therefore, they can, in fact, attempt to penetrate other countries as well and they do because that is their business. But it is very difficult for them to say, “it is Russia, it is the fault of Russia” because the evidence obviously isn’t there because the technology is so sophisticated now, that is virtually impossible to identify the source. They only can say, for political reasons, that it is Russia. - Martin McCauley, author, and Russia analyst

RT: We've now heard the CIA is essentially able to frame other states for cyber-attacks. Doesn't this further cast doubt on the allegations about Russia?

GS: Of course, it does. And that is what is so interesting about the revelations earlier this week from WikiLeaks that the CIA makes it a practice of creating an archive of previous hacks so that they can conceal their own hacks by imposing the fingerprints if hacks made by others. So, in fact, it could well have been CIA hacking to the DNC which was made to look as if it were Russians. And in fact, it was always a kind of common sense that if the Russian state were behind the hack of the DNC, then they would make very sure that they wouldn’t leave any fingerprints or any traces that could be traced to their activities. That would just be common-sensical, but instead, CrowdStrike which was this strange little organization that claims to be experts on cyber-attacks found with almost no investigation “We definitely have this conclusive proof that the Russians were behind it.” And then the CIA simply adopted the claims of CrowdStrike. But CrowdStrike just came to this conclusion with really no serious investigation.

The statements, views and opinions expressed in this column are solely those of the author and do not necessarily represent those of RT.

HOW DOES ONE "PROVE THE LAW" IN A CRIMINAL DEFENSE CASE?

If your neighbor breaks your window, the law regulates how you can show your claim to be true or false; but how do you prove that in breaking your window your neighbor has broken the law? American jurisprudence devotes an elaborate body of doctrine—and an equally elaborate body of accompanying scholarly commentary—to worrying about how to prove facts. It establishes rules for the admissibility of evidence, creates varying standards of proof, and assigns burdens of proof that determine who wins or loses when the facts are unclear. However, the law is shockingly inexplicit when addressing these issues with respect to the proof of legal claims. Indeed, the entire language of evidentiary proof, so sophisticated when it comes to questions of fact, is largely absent from the American legal system with respect to questions of law.

Legal claims are inherently objects of proof, and whether or not the law acknowledges the point openly, proof of legal claims is just a special case of the more general norms governing proof of any claim. As a result, similar principles of evidentiary admissibility, standards of proof, and burdens of proof operate, and must operate, in the background of claims about the law. One must bring these evidentiary principles for proving law out of the shadows so that they can be analyzed, clarified, and discussed.

Viewing legal problems through this lens of proof illuminates debates about everything from constitutional interpretation to the role of stipulations in litigation. Rather than prescribe resolutions to any of those debates, Evidence of the Law instead provides a set of tools that can be used to make those debates more fruitful, whatever one’s substantive views may be. As lawyers, judges, and legal subjects confront uncertainty about what the law is, they can, should, and must be guided by the same kinds of abstract considerations, structures, and doctrines long used to make determinations about questions of fact.

#CTIJF: Throwback

Picture: Throwback to 2010 - 11th Jazz Festival

I feel so sophisticated when I start off with a quote, so…

“Life is a lot like jazz… it’s best when you improvise.” – George Gershwin

Yes, it’s that time of the year again. A time to appreciate talent, a time to relax and just be you. The 18th Annual Cape Town International Jazz Festival will be taking place on the 31 March – 01 April 2017 at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.

But wait…

Have you ever wondered how the Cape Town International Jazz Festival started? Well, the North Sea Jazz Festival, which was created by Dutch Jazz promoter Paul Acket in 1976, is held annually in Netherlands and is regarded as one of the most prestigious Jazz festivals in the world. In 2000, the festival reached South African soil and landed in Cape Town. It was originally called: The North Sea Jazz Cape Town, under the umbrella of the North Sea Jazz Festival. Yes, that is a bit of a mouthful but all in all, it’s a related event. (Something like how we would say: “My sister’s uncle’s aunty’s grandfather’s nephew…”)

Now that we know how it started, what makes the Cape Town edition of the festival different? It has a unique programming formula: 50/50 talent split. This means that half the talent is international and the other is home-grown and proudly African. The event allows for local musicians to take their rightful place alongside International musicians. Thus the festival is often referred to as “Africa’s Grandest Gathering” and regarded as the continent’s most prestigious event!

So, just to re-cap: It started long time ago, famous celebrities are there, local talent gets to perform with the famous people and the festival is grand, like on a global level. 😉

What will the future hold for us if robots and artificial intelligence take most of the work? Well this article takes a look on the impact of a world changed by such things. They propose political change such as a tax to bridge the gap.

Earlier this month in the European Parliament one such idea was considered for the EU. Benoît Hamon who is a French Socialist party presidential candidate has put a robot tax plan in his platform. Bill Gates has even endorsed the idea recently. The article suggests that it isn't the typical apocalyptic idea that robots will become evil and kill us all that will cause the problem but the amplified economic disparities that will make live literally unlivable for the vast majority.

Yet so far this improved technology hasn't caused extreme unemployment. They bring up the example of ATMs and bank tellers. The ATMs made it cheaper to open another branch which allowed the bank to expand which in turn employed more people.

But technology is becoming so sophisticated that human beings wont be left to do anything. Instead of transforming work technology might eliminate it. To demonstrate this idea here is a quote from the article: "Productivity increased by 80.4% between 1973 and 2011, but the real hourly compensation of the median worker went up by only 10.7%." Capital may finally disengage and liberate itself from labour which means not merely the end of work but the end of the wage.

What do you think? Do you think this is all smoke and mirrors and that there will always be jobs available that machines can not do? Or do you see need for massive political change to handle this transition into the post capital-labour system we have now?
