Jesters – Not Anyone’s Fools

A jester or fool was a type of entertainer and archetype in Medieval Europe, similar to a modern clown or comedian. With their colorful, eccentric outfits and repertoire of juggling, acrobatics and wit, jesters were a favorite of commoners and noblemen alike. Jesters were commonly travelling minstrels and acrobats, performing at village fairs and festivals. Those who were especially lucky or talented would be hired as court jesters, becoming a regular fixture of a noble or royal court. They would perform tricks, sing fables and satirize daily court life in front of the upper class. Court jesters were granted special privileges, and were allowed to speak in a way that other commoners were forbidden to. With this license to offend, court jesters served as a “voice of the people” in a culture with rigid social barriers. A court jester could openly mock and satirize their social betters without consequence, and were often favored by their lords as trusted advisors who could always speak their minds. Queen Elizabeth I is recorded as having scolding her court jester for not being harsh enough on her. A successful jester had to be skilled in both physical acts and possess a quick wit and knack for singing and storytelling. Jester performances were usually a mix of juggling, acrobatics and magic shows combined with fables, songs, jokes and political commentaries. There was no fixed costume for a jester, but costume usually involved loud, motley colours, bells and baubles and a ...

Beauty salons Paddington

In case you didn't know, your skin is your body's largest organ, at least by body cell count. Unfortunately, however, it is constantly exposed to a variety of environmental elements such as pollution, dust, sun rays, etc., every day. And such exposure can take a toll on anyone's skin regardless of their genetic or ethnic background. Therefore, in a bid to reduce the occurrence of acne, fine lines, wrinkles, 'crow's feet', acne scars, age spots and other skin disorders, dermatologists have come come up with special skin treatments geared towards protecting the skin from such undesired pigmentation. Here is a quick primer on that. As you may already know, waxing in a beauty salon is a hair removal technique aimed at a making sure that the skin is left silky smooth and bumpless after shaving. Unlike using razors and other temporary hair removal techniques, waxing permanently removes unwanted hair without leaving an unsightly mess behind. In fact, after waxing you will no longer have to worry about razor burns or nursing a sore stubble. Besides, waxing works pretty well with almost all types of hair textures, types, and colors. On that note, scientists and skincare experts have also proven that if hair is waxed oftenly, the roots and follicles weaken with time leading to permanent hair loss or little regrowth with time. This, of course, can be a relief to many of us who abhor shaving on a weekly or daily basis. Furthermore, waxing doesn't just remove hair at the roots; it a...

The Seven Major Benefits of PVC Cladding

Low Maintenance With PVC cladding, you’ll never have to worry about repairing or repainting your weatherboards again. Unlike other materials, PVC cladding has been proven to be perfectly suited for Australian conditions, where weather conditions can go from one extreme to the other in a single day. Wood can warp, crack, dislocate, peel or collapse in certain weather, but PVC cladding can survive the Australian summer, torrential storms and bitterly cold nights while retaining its shape and condition. As well as being durable without being brittle, PVC cladding does not fade in colour the way other materials do. Instead of a layer of paint coating the outside, the manufacturing process means that the colour remains consistent throughout the PVC. This also means that there are none of the colour inconsistences that can occur with external painting. Versatility The modular nature of PVC cladding means more versatility and a larger number of weatherboard projects that can be completed. PVC cladding can be applied both vertically and horizontally, and have a minimum of joins. The unique Windlock 180 system results in a more secure application and a tighter fit. Due to their flexible utility, PVC cladding can be used in domestic homes, offices, showrooms, swimming pools, hospitality, entertainment centres, trade workshops and many other places. The simple application and adjustment of PVC cladding also make them ideal for DIY home improvement projects.   ...

Marriage Act Plebiscite – Why the Left Is Terrified

The bottom line is they know it will be defeated, notwithstanding any opinion polls to the contrary. It's not about cost, it's not about funding the arguments for or against, it's not about the risk of fostering hate speech, it's all about winning. Supporters of changes to the marriage act know that if it comes to a democratic vote of the public via a plebiscite, it will fail. A failure so big that neither side of politics will touch the issue for at least two election cycles. For the same reason that the Brexit leave campaign succeeded, Pauline Hanson won four Senate seats and Donald Trump will win the US Presidential Election, the proposed Same Sex Marriage Plebiscite will be a disaster for the "Yes" side. The reason is that the silenced middle majority of the English-speaking West are fed up with being told what to think, what to feel and what to believe by the political and media elites. They are tired of being sniped at and told to shut up by social justice keyword warriors. Pick and issue: immigration, free trade, foreign ownership, changes to the marriage act, income redistribution, globalism, global warming and state welfare. The middle majority do have opinions on all these issues, but are now too scared to speak out and thereby internalise their frustration. The vast majority of this middle majority aren't racists, greedy capitalists, bigots, homophobes, climate-deniers, islamophobes, sexists or transphobes. But they are very angry. They are angry ...

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

Getting a tattoo removed is much simpler now that modern medicine has introduced various types of skin lasers to help break down the stubborn tattoo ink that causes their permanency. Laser tattoo removal is an invention that many individuals who wish to have tattoos removed are thankful for. After a few treatments, the tattoo's obvious fading makes the tattoo less visible and obvious. Of all other tattoo removal treatments, laser treatments offer the most effective removal possible as of today. With concentrated and high-frequency lights, laser treatments help to break down tattoo ink so that the body's immune system can then move in to expel it from the body. Not all tattoos can be removed and depending on the size, complexity, and colors on the tattoo, the tattoo may be easier or more difficult to remove. It is important to remember that a tattoo specialist can help you to determine what the prognosis is for your particular case of laser tattoo removal. Each type of laser is specially designed to assist with the removal of certain types of inks. Individuals with fair skin and tattoos on the arms, legs, chest, buttocks, and other fleshy areas of the body are easier to treat and usually see the best results. Typically, the less skin and the more boney the area (finger, ankles, toes, etc.) the harder it is to remove a tattoo. Laser tattoo removal is usually just as painful as getting a tattoo. There are ways to help alleviate this pain by taking Tylenol or by applyin...
