In his hit song, Take me home, country roads, John Denver compares West Virginia to paradise. He sings fondly of the state’s mountains, the Shenandoah River and country roads.

The song is only three minutes long, but it sums up West Virginia. It is a culturally rich state with an interesting history, scenic Appalachian views, and many cities named after famous world cities: Cairo, Athens, Berlin, Geneva, and Shanghai, to name a few- one.

Thinking of taking a road trip in West Virginia? In this article, we will outline the best routes to take. We’ll also explain which casino hotels to visit in case you need a place to stay, play slots or have a drink.

All dressed up and somewhere to go: back to the office https://alslh.com/all-dressed-up-and-somewhere-to-go-back-to-the-office/ Mon, 02 May 2022 23:12:50 +0000 https://alslh.com/all-dressed-up-and-somewhere-to-go-back-to-the-office/ A return to the office for the “vast majority” of the federal workforce is happening, or may have already happened to you, depending on the agency or office you work for.

A return to the office for the “vast majority” of the federal workforce is happening, or may have already happened to you, depending on the agency or office you work for.

The Biden administration made the “when” part of back to office clear during the State of the Union address. Most federal officials, President Joe Biden has said, should return to the office, for at least part of the workweek, to help revive downtown business districts in cities across the country.

Many other issues swirling around reintegration into the office, at this stage, however, are left to the discretion of individual agencies.

Telecommuting days, public transit subsidies, parking and reserving a desk in the office – as well as health and safety measures related to COVID-19 – are at the center of the many questions that managers and supervisors are now asking.

Beyond that, however, some feds wonder how much the dress code should change, after spending about two years in mandatory telecommuting.

Federal employees getting to know their office (or perhaps visiting it for the first time) have become accustomed to spending less time getting ready for the office and more time in the morning working out, sleeping, to look after their children or perhaps enjoy an unhurried breakfast.

These are hard things to let go of, and that’s why many feds insist on keeping telecommuting in their lives, especially if they work at an agency that wasn’t receptive to telecommuting before the pandemic.

Last year, in a survey of more than 700 assistant U.S. attorneys, 95% of respondents told the National Association of Assistant United States Attorneys (NAAUSA) that they were successful in doing their jobs from telecommuting, while that 93% supported a departmental policy of two days of teleworking per week.

“Eliminating commuting and time spent preparing for work – especially for women whose physical appearance expectations require significantly more time and effort – helps provide more time for do my job,” said an unnamed U.S. attorney, working in the East. District of Arkansas, said in the survey.

While acceptable dress code obviously varies by agency and position, there is anecdotal evidence that some Feds get some flexibility with the dress code.

Take, for example, the New Orleans Passport Center, a facility operated by the Department of State.

In March, local agency leaders reached an agreement with the National Federation of Federal Employees Local 1998 to follow a “casual dress policy” on all workdays.

Approved clothing in this category includes jeans or pants (nothing “ripped, dirty, or frayed”) and cropped pants that fall below the knee. Employees are also allowed to wear casual shirts, dress shirts, sweaters, polo shirts, turtlenecks and sneakers to work.

The memo, which lasts two years, states that all clothing and footwear must be “clean, washed and in good condition”.

In certain scenarios, such as attending outreach events or visits from members of Congress or regional managers, employees may be required to follow a casual dress code. The memo says employees will be given 48 hours notice to prepare for these cases.

T-shirts and sweatshirts with professional sports team logos are permitted on casual days for all employees. The same applies to apparel bearing the logos of the US military or other local, state, or federal government entities.

The memo states that Passport Services employees are not permitted to wear shorts at work unless working on a Saturday or Sunday. The same rules apply to strapless or low-cut tops, as well as uncovered tank tops.

“When you are working overtime on weekends and the public is not present, you can dress casually and comfortably,” the memo reads.

The memo says supervisors and managers will deal with any situation in which inappropriate attire is worn.

“If an obvious violation occurs, the supervisor/manager will hold a private, personal and respectful discussion with the employee to inform them of the inappropriate dress, the employee may be required to leave work or their workstation to change held and may be required to take annual leave or [leave without pay] away from work.

NFFE Local 1998 President Lee Wentz said the deal had nothing to do with a return to the office, as Passport Services employees have worked in the office throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19.

“A lot of federal offices have just come back now, relocating their employees to their offices. We worked all the time, basically. We have been in our offices the whole time. It’s not like we’re working remotely, and now we’re just coming back. We’ve been physically in our work cubicles every day,” Wentz said.

Comfort, Wentz said, appears to be driving this negotiated deal. New Orleans, after all, is a hot and humid place that will only get hotter or wetter as we get closer to summer.

“Some offices have more casual dress codes than others. They’ve negotiated that over the years, and so I guess I’d say New Orleans, in many ways, has finally caught up with some of the other offices in the country,” Wentz said.

At this point, it’s a stretch to look at what’s going on with the dress code at the New Orleans Passport Center and extrapolate this as a new trend in the rest of the federal workforce. But it’s an interesting anecdote for office workers rethinking the future of work in the federal government.

Wentz said he doesn’t know if this might have a ripple effect on other Passport Services offices.

“When things like this happen, often other offices, other shop stewards will say, ‘Hey, if they have this, why not have this. I could see this happening in other offices. Because it happened in one office, maybe other delegates in other offices will pursue the same topic,” he said.

Almost useless factoid

By Amelia Brust

In 1822, a Scot by the name of Gregor MacGregor conned hundreds of investors into financing a new colony of “Poyais” on the coast of Honduras. He raised the equivalent of around £3.6 billion (around $4.5 billion) and convinced seven settler ships to sail to the new land. Poyais, however, did not exist and only the first two ships carrying 250 passengers made it to Honduras where they found nothing that MacGregor had promised. Two-thirds of them died, and the survivors were rescued by a passing ship. MacGregor repeated the scam in France but was discovered and fled to Caracas, Venezuela.

AL-MUKALLA: Houthi morality policewomen have kicked dozens of women off the streets of the northern town of Saada, the heart of the movement, for shopping without a male guardian, also known as a mahram, residents and local media said.
The Iran-backed Houthis have banned women from shopping without a mahram, asking women to adhere to Islamic dress codes and only allowing women to shop in limited places in the city.
To enforce the ban, residents told Arab News, dozens of all-female morality police were seen wandering Saada during Ramadan, when the streets are full of shoppers, looking for of offenders.
Al-Masdar Online, a Yemeni news site, reported that the Houthis broadcast the ban through loudspeakers attached to cars driving through the streets, asking women not to date the mahram and naming markets where women could shop for Ramadan and Eid.
Houthi police briefly detained dozens of unaccompanied women, then released them after they signed a written recognizance.
The ban on women walking around without a mahram comes as the Yemeni militia steps up its moralization campaigns in areas under its control.
The Houthis have arrested dozens of women for violating Islamic dress codes, banning singing at weddings, and arresting singers and artists who challenged the ban.
Since early last year, the Houthis have detained Entesar Al-Hammadi, a Yemeni actress and model, after kicking her off a street in Sanaa for allegedly “drug trafficking and…prostitution”.
The latest report by the UN Group of Experts accuses the Houthis of sexually assaulting women, subjecting them to different forms of physical and psychological torture and denying them birth control.
“The Houthis simply want women to be annexed to men and used as baby-making machines to produce fighters,” Nadwa Al-Dawsari, a Yemeni conflict analyst, told Arab News.
Ali Al-Fakih, editor-in-chief of Al-Masdar Online, said the Houthis had turned Saada into a testing site for their strict rules, as they view the city as completely loyal to them. “They see Saada as a pure place for their doctrine and their followers. So they can easily implement any decision,” Al-Fakih said.
Unlike other Yemeni areas under their control, the Houthis have made Saada the most secretive place in Yemen, where even visitors to the city must inform militia at checkpoints of the reasons for their visit and for how long. of their stay.
“People cannot breathe in Saada. I think we will see later the ban on Houthi women traveling without a mahram imposed in other areas,” Al-Fakih said.

What is Women’s Empowerment?

Asia Atienza

Accepting women’s views or striving to seek them, raising the status of women through education, awareness, literacy and training. Promote women’s sense of self-worth, their ability to determine their own choices, and their right to influence social change for themselves and others.

Why is women’s empowerment important in Bermuda? Let’s talk about it. There are systems, cultures and norms that have been constructed to oppress women. Bermuda has a history of extreme gender-based violence that manifests in cultural norms such as verbal abuse, male stares, female body rights and misconceptions/violations of consent. These challenges arise in formal and informal settings.

This is a topic we aim to raise awareness about and bring solutions to You Are Not Fragile. Our very name goes against social norms of femininity that are projected onto women. Traditionally, women are seen as delicate and expected to act that way when we are the exact opposite.

Being a woman means you have infinite power that for centuries society and governments have tried to diminish. It is now up to women to find it and reclaim our own narrative. Therefore, you are not fragile.

Misogyny is all around us. From school uniform requirements and government structures to workplace dress codes. The focus has always been on what women can do to protect themselves rather than correct male dominated behavior through education, awareness and understanding.

Most efforts to reduce gender-based violence encourage women to protect themselves from the problem, rather than addressing the problem itself. Doesn’t that seem a bit counter-intuitive? But with each passing day, with each year, with each century, we come closer and closer to closing the gender gap.

Although long, it is not impossible. We need to lift ourselves up and empower other women.

Society has taught us to compete with each other: who is the prettiest? Who is the thinnest? And so on and so forth – all based on society’s conceptions of what a woman should be.

We’ve all been pitted against each other, and that’s our greatest weakness. You Are Not Fragile was created to remind all women that, in the words of the late Japanese novelist Ryunosuke Satoro, “individually, we are a drop. Together we are the ocean”.

Apparently, your clothing choices can put a strain on your friendship. In some people’s minds, there are only so many times you can wear one dress. Rather than seeing your fashion choices as iconic, they see it as a quiet insult.

A reddit, from Canada, shared how she wears a blue dress to all her friends’ weddings in California because her warm weather wardrobe is very limited. However, when she was invited to her friend’s wedding, she was warned not to wear her signature dress.

It was then that the publisher decided to turn to the AITA community for advice on what it should do. Scroll down for the full post and to see what advice the internet gave the woman. When you’ve read everything, share your opinion in the comments. Do you think it’s time for a new dress or should the wedding guest wear her old blue dress again?

bored panda reached out to wedding industry experts Anna and Sarah, team leaders at The Wedding Society, to get their thoughts on wedding dress codes, following the happy couple’s advice, as well as trends to fashion in 2022. Read on for what they had to say.

A Woman Was Invited To A Friend’s Wedding But Was In A Dilemma About What To Wear

Her friend’s request led her to turn to the AITA community for advice. Here’s the full story from the redditor

According to wedding experts Anna and Sarah, it’s usually a good idea to listen to the advice and direction the wedding couple gives their guests. Of course, everything must be taken with a pinch of common sense: most of the time, you will know intuitively if certain requests are unreasonable or unrealistic.

“If you can and they’re reasonable, it’s always best to take the advice of the bride and groom as to what to wear,” the expert told Bored Panda.

“Of course, there’s always a line that can be crossed for being overly demanding or unrealistic with expectations, but generally most couples are just trying to help their guests get a feel for their day,” they wrote. suggested that tips shouldn’t put too much pressure on guests.

Anna and Sarah were happy to give Bored Panda a look at the trends in bridal wear and designs in terms of colors and patterns. “There are so many amazing style trends for weddings right now,” they said that 2022 is shaping up to be a great year.

“Neutrals and demures are very popular, as well as pops of bright colors. The clean lines and Palm Springs vibe are always very much in evidence!” they revealed what’s trending.

Most of us Pandas know what peer pressure looks like. At the end of the day, we value other people’s opinions. Especially if they are our closest friends. So when someone tells us they don’t like something we’re wearing, we tend to think it over. A lot. Maybe way too much. Even if we like an item of clothing, we might start to question our own decisions.

After all, we don’t want to end up embarrassing our friends or making them feel uncomfortable. On the other hand, we shouldn’t be so eager to let go of our identities or fashion choices either. Also, some people are not very enthusiastic about buying a new set of clothes “just” for a wedding. It can sometimes be difficult to strike the right balance between personal boundaries and social expectations.

In some cases, our friends are absolutely right and we just can’t see that our beloved clothes might not suit the social event we are going to. In any case, when it comes to criticizing someone’s clothes, it is essential to be diplomatic, delicate and gentle. (Unless they have a perverted sense of humor and believe frankness is the best policy.)

Earlier, Mary Waldron, the founder of “You Can’t Just Put Fabric Together and Call It a Dress,” told Bored Panda that people might be more willing to listen to you if you put things differently.

“I think the most important thing when sharing opinions about another person’s outfits is tact, it seems rude if you just say, ‘Your dress is ugly’ and the other person may not be so willing to listen to you, but if you were to say, ‘I don’t think this dress is very flattering for your figure, try this other dress.’ It feels less judgmental and gives you a chance to give them a better option,” she explained how people can approach the topic of dresses diplomatically.

Meanwhile, Nigerian fashion designer Oyinda Akinfenwa, the designer behind the Janore brand, told Bored Panda a bit about the actual process of designing the dresses.

“As for my process, it varies depending on the design and my state of mind at the time. It can be quick like just imagining a style and sometimes it’s quite slow which can involve drawing various patterns to make sure I get the right fit and style needed for each design,” she gave us a little insight into how clothing designers think and work.

“I would like people to understand that it’s not easy to create designs from an idea, there’s a lot of creative process involved with it and it would be nice if people understood the designs a bit better. designers and also understood the story behind their artistry,” she said.

“I have to make sure that all the style options I come up with look as good as the next one and fit the category of outfit I’m looking for. Also to ensure that it can not only be styled differently, but also fit different occasions, creating ease and comfort for the wearer,” she explained.

Lots of people sided with the OP. Here’s what they said about the situation

Meanwhile, others thought it might be time to wear a different dress

Two racing fans were initially refused entry to Sandown’s most expensive enclosure because of their shoes

Sandown has pledged to review its dress code provisions after significant criticism on social media greeted the news that two racegoers were initially denied entry to the track’s most expensive enclosure because of their shoes.

Racing Post tipster Paul Kealy revealed on his Twitter account that “two perfectly well-dressed young ladies” had been told they couldn’t enter the Sandown Premier compound because they were wearing trainers.

They were described by Kealy as “the cleanest you’ve ever seen”, but the white trainers contravened advice given on Sandown’s website.

The two racegoers were eventually allowed entry after further scrutiny by another member of staff, but their initial rejection reignited the debate over racetrack dress codes.

ITV and Sky TV channel Leonna Mayor wrote on Twitter: “No trainers on racecourses… apt. Maybe there won’t be many left if the racing industry doesn’t pull up its socks .which no one seems to be wearing anymore.”

Shane Anderson, who previously hosted television coverage of Melbourne’s top races on racing.com, reacted by posting: “Stuck in the Dark Ages. Embarrassing.”

Stephen Pollard, editor of The Jewish Chronicle, told his nearly 36,000 subscribers: “It’s a sport that has a death wish. I love racing but sometimes I really hate it.”

Another user of the platform, Tom Barkley, tweeted: “Come and race they say. . The longer the elitists stay the same, so will the race. It’s really bad.”

A Sandown spokesperson said: “A dress code is in place for the Premier Enclosure and it is part of the role of our teams on race day to try to ensure this is followed. However, we take take into account today’s comments and will now consider it for future appointments.

Outlining the Premier Enclosure’s current dress code on its website, Sandown says: “Guests are expected to follow our smart casual guidelines and encouraged to dress for a special occasion. Men are advised to wear collared shirts , polo shirts or polo neck sweaters. Dress pants, chinos and dress jeans are acceptable. Hats and fascinators are welcome but not essential. Please note that fancy dress, shorts, sneakers, sports and flip flops are not allowed.”

Royal Ascot is one of the most prestigious race meetings in British horse racing. It holds a special place in the hearts of trainers, jockeys and racing fans.

The presence of the Queen, who has been passionate about horse racing since a young age, also helps create a sense of grandeur. With the event attracting royal interest, it’s no surprise that Royal Ascot is one of the best-dressed race meetings of the calendar year.

Each year, event organizers release an official “style guide” to explain what guests can and cannot wear on race day. The 2022 style guide is the 11th edition and appears to be a celebration of British fashion designers this summer.

Royal Ascot is due to take place from June 14-18, just in time for the summer weather. With some 300,000 people expected to pass through the gates of Ascot Racecourse during the five-day event, let’s take a look at what this year’s style guide recommends for men and women who plan to visit this iconic corner of Berkshire.

What to think of the official Royal Ascot 2022 style guide

This year’s guide features a host of British fashion houses, including Erdem and Shrimps, as well as The Vampire’s Wife. In terms of the style icons used, the guide’s most notable inclusion is model and actress Greta Bellamacina, alongside her husband Robert Montgomery.

Although the guide seems to encourage racegoers to be more “daring” with their outfits, there is a general feeling that visitors should adopt a “casual” appearance.

The rules for Royal Ascot 2022 have been relaxed slightly. Men are allowed to wear brightly printed clothes and Cuban shirts – which would normally be frowned upon.

The guide also shows women sporting a more casual look, with platform heels and mini dresses seemingly the order of the day. Even miniskirts should be allowed in all Royal Ascot enclosures, with the exception of the Royal enclosure where a “modest” hemline is requested.

The Royal Ascot reunion has shown a growing willingness to change its dress code in recent years. In 2021, Navy morning suits were finally approved in the Royal Enclosure, while coveralls were also permitted in the Royal Enclosure and Queen Anne Enclosure dress codes from 2017.

Despite its shift in stance towards dress codes, organizers have continued to take a tough stance towards revelers who fail to control their drinking, with pioneer in temporary accommodation reserved for problem customers to protect the integrity of the occasion.

Established in 1768, the event has come a long way from its 18th century roots.

The Gold Cup remains the most iconic race of the entire festival, providing a tough test for even the most elite in the world. It is attracting interest from punters around the world, with live coverage of Royal Ascot broadcast around the world. Racing fans at Ascot have the opportunity to visit the betting ring on any of the 36 races throughout the festival. It is here that several independent bookmakers jockey for custom bettors.

Aside from the bookmakers on the Ascot course, some racing fans prefer to place their bets before heading to the racecourse. This allows them to enjoy the festivities of all the day has to offer without having to deal with crowded betting rings.

Most UK bookmakers have mobile-friendly desktop sites, as well as native mobile apps that allow customers to place bets at the touch of a screen.

When you first create an account with a bookmaker before Royal Ascot, you will probably activate a Ascot Free Bet. These can take many forms – either as a risk-free bet on any horse or race at Royal Ascot, or even as increased odds on a specific horse before the race.

The most notable races that attract betting interest at Royal Ascot are the Coronation Stakes, Diamond Jubilee Stakes and Prince of Wales’s Stakes, as well as the Gold Cup. All three races are classified in Group 1, attracting some of the best thoroughbreds and flat racing jockeys in the business.

Royal Ascot organizers are looking to optimize capacity levels at this year’s event, which could hit its £1.3m bottom line despite drastically improving the customer experience for these lucky fans. races.

With some of the more popular speakers having their limited capabilities, casual attire could definitely be the way to go to appreciate the extra personal space in and around the stands.

Square toe sandals are here to claim their throne as summer’s must-have shoes. Considering they’ve been reigning for a while now, that’s not a huge surprise. And according to Caroline Maguire, fashion director at Shopbop, we do not say goodbye to these shoes any soon: “Although the trend has been here for two seasons, we still love it!” (Honestly, TG.) The box-shaped shoe shape has stolen the hearts of fashionistas around the world. And to be honest, I can’t remember the last time my shoe wasn’t square toed.

Dear HR

Recently, I participated in a discussion about dress codes in the workplace. What are dress codes used for in organizations? Should there even be dress codes?

A dress code or appearance policy allows an employer to define (state) their expectations regarding how the business is perceived by the public – customers and clients and for this reason a company’s dress code can be formal or informal and may include the use of uniforms.

Each business must determine what is appropriate for the type of business it operates and the image it wishes to project to its customers.

Ultimately, the dress code serves to make a statement about the professionalism of the individual and the organization, especially during meetings and client/client interactions where first impressions are key.

Over the years, what was considered professional attire has changed. Although some employers have relaxed their formal dress codes, most have kept a policy in place to ensure certain standards are maintained.

There are many reasons why a company may choose to implement a dress code policy or may instead choose to provide uniforms to its employees:

Advertising and brand awareness

Uniforms are a good advertisement for the company as they help to promote the company brand and act as an effective marketing tool.

The uniform communicates the corporate image that the company wishes to project and increases brand retention in the minds of the public.

Uniformity

One of the main benefits of a uniform is that it reduces the need to figure out what to wear to work each day.

This can take the pressure off that some may feel pressured to follow fashion trends or be seen in the latest styles. It also reduces the amount the employee spends on clothing.

Additionally, it is also believed that employees being similarly equipped, wearing the same style and colors would lead to a sense of esprit de corps (team spirit) and make employees feel like they are all equal in the eyes of the company.

Furthermore, it is believed that in the public domain, the uniform links the identity of the employee to that of the company and any goodwill for the individual can translate into goodwill for the company and vice versa. .

Public respect for the company is expected to result in increased employee loyalty and allegiance to the company.

Health and security

Sometimes dress codes are introduced for health and safety reasons. Especially in manufacturing environments, uniforms provide employees with physical protection from harm.

Depending on the nature of the employee’s work, there can be many hazards in the workplace, so it is important that employees wear the appropriate attire that ensures their safety.

Dress Code/Policy

Dress code policies provide guidelines for their employees on what is considered appropriate work attire.

The policy ensures that employees have a clear understanding of what is considered appropriate clothing for their workplace.

In some circumstances, the policy sometimes includes difficult-to-address topics such as good hygiene and grooming.

Depending on the sector or industry, this may include rules on hairstyles, beards, body piercings and tattoos. Again, depending on the industry, the policy may also extend to jewelry that can be worn.

Of course, on the other hand, there are also those who believe that there is no need for a dress code or such policies.

These people believe that employees should be free from stipulations such as these allowing them to be themselves and as comfortable as possible – to express their individuality and portray their identity.

It is thought that higher levels of productivity can result in these more relaxed environments; that casual clothing makes employees feel much more comfortable and this leads to more relaxed interactions with each other.

As you can see, the dress code/policy in place in a workplace depends on the business objective and will support the strategies being pursued.

If you’re revamping an existing code or looking to implement a dress code in your workplace, here are some tips you might find useful: When developing a dress code policy or deciding on uniforms

• Always include your employees. Have a cross-section of employees involved in the development or review process and consider their opinions and suggestions.

• Establish a small uniform committee.

• Also remember that “one size may not fit all”. Explore a wide variety of options that fit the organization’s corporate culture.

Recognizing increased diversity, even within our local and regional environments, this will provide employees with wider options for appropriate wear.

• Organizations should develop policies that not only align with employer goals, but respect employee rights (eg, religious beliefs and ethnicity). By doing so, employers also protect themselves from claims of discrimination.
