LVC 1967 505-0217 – Washed Too Soon When it comes to raw denim, arguably the biggest cardinal sin is washing them too soon. For those new to or unfamiliar with raw denim, the goal is to achieve as sharp fade creases and contrasts as possible, thereby leaving you with denim that is suited to just you. To do so, however, one should refrain from washing for at least six months.
“After 15 Months without washing, Nudie pants show ‘normal’ bacteria levels” | Rawr Denim - Home of Everything Raw and DenimJosh Le with 15 Month Old Raw Denim A couple months ago, there was a pretty interesting article published in the Edmonton Journal (home town, yea!) to shut up all those haters who think that people “over wear” raw denim and how it’s “gross” for wearing them with no, or very minimal, washing for a long period of time.

With over 40 years of research to support their findings, a team of British scientists was slightly surprised to learn that people with higher IQs are much more prone to drug use . "It's counterintuitive," says lead author James White. "It's not what we thought we would find." And it's not for lack of trying either. The Cardiff University team consulted data from 8,000 people in the 1970 British Cohort Study, a group of human lab rats born in the same week in April 1970 and surveyed approximately once every five years about a broad host of topics.
BANGKOK, Thailand — From sleep to social lives, there is little Asia’s most upwardly mobile students won’t sacriﬁce for education. Though they belong to the so-called “Asian Century,” American colleges remain the premier destination for the elite from Shanghai to Singapore to Seoul. The path to US college acceptance, however, increasingly compels students to sacriﬁce their integrity. For the right price, unscrupulous college prep agencies offer ghostwritten essays in ﬂawless English, fake awards, manipulated transcripts and even whiz kids for hire who’ll pose as the applicant for SAT exams. “Oh my God, they can do everything for you,” said Nok, 17-year-old Thai senior in her ﬁnal year at a private Bangkok high school.

Well, this is interesting. Earlier this week Aaron Wall noticed that Google's Chrome team appeared to be sponsoring blog posts about Google that have direct links to Google Chrome, without any attempt to hide those from search bots... in contradiction to the rules that it has for others against buying links. Danny Sullivan dug into the details a little bit more and found that it was "jaw-dropping" in how it clearly violated Google's own rules, and just how ridiculous the entire campaign appears to be. In response, Google has basically said that it never signed up for such a campaign , and appears to suggest that the advertising firm it hired was part of the problem.
Responding up drastically to a recent advertising effort went completely dysfunctional, Google Inc is now demoting its very own Chrome browser in the search engine page results. The call for such a drastic step came after an advertising campaign from Google Chrome projected the internal rules concerning the paid promotions.

Providing deep insights on the matter, Aaron Wall, the founder of SEOBook.com revealed that these Google remarks came into action after a blog posts went live which made favorable remarks regarding the Google Chrome’s browsing tool and also proclaimed that Google was behind sponsoring the same. SEOBook is the website which trains the marketing experts on how to improve the search engine results of their website.
Clients go to psychotherapy seeking a mind massage, but all too often things turn physical. Cases of inappropriate sexual contact in psychotherapy average around 10 per cent prevalence, and a 2006 survey of hundreds of psychotherapists found that nearly 90 per cent reported having been sexually attracted to a client on at least one occasion. It's an issue dramatised artfully in the HBO series In Treatment, which follows the life and work of psychotherapist Dr Paul Weston. A new paper by clinical psychologist Carol Martin and colleagues discusses how therapists deal with these awkward feelings. The researchers interviewed 13 psychotherapists (7 men), including 2 clinical psychologists and 2 psychoanalysts, in-depth about times they'd been attracted to a client but had stopped themselves acting on those urges.
