Money talks when trying to influence climate change legislation

Climate lobbying is big business. A new analysis shows that between 2000 and 2016, lobbyists spent more than two billion dollars on influencing relevant legislation in the US Congress. Unsurprisingly, sectors that could be negatively affected by bills limiting carbon emissions, such as the electrical utilities sector, fossil fuel companies and transportation corporations had the deepest pockets.

Hermès Launches Enchaînements Libres, A Fine Jewellery Collection

Hermes recently launched a new collection of fine jewellery called Enchainements Libres. The unique launch event took place in Paris. The occasion saw dance performance at La Gaite Lyrique. The performance saw humans (ballerinas) moving slowly and gradually forming links by interlocking arms, probably trying to re-create the charm of links and chains present in the jewellery pieces. The dance was the conceptualisation of Pierre Hardy, the Creative Director of the fine jewellery division, who says, “The chain connects and interconnects opposites, it attaches and liberates.”The spectacular show was presented live during Paris couture week. The show was choreographed by Christian Rizzo. The performers were dressed in black so that the jewels they wore attracted eye balls, which the jewels managed to do successfully.“The whole collection is designed around the body. The chain allowed me to make the link between the cosmetic and the cosmos, words which share the same origin, and which are related to order and harmony,” says Hardy talking about his inspiration as per the Hermes website.  He adds, “When you design an item of clothing, the body gives an absolute, pre-established scale, while with jewellery you are free to move from small to large, from single to multiple elements,”“These pieces of jewellery are conceived as extensions of the body. I always seek to understand how they will actually be articulated, how they will flex and move with the body. They reveal gestures, enhance postures. They are objects with a lot of personality, light and radiance,” adds Hardy.Her further says that far from the jewellery of former times, which obstructed movement, these pieces are designed for modern lifestyles. They dance in unison with the bodies that wear them. “I always seek that which will be beautiful, that which will appeal to a woman that which will bring the form to life as strikingly as possible. Beauty is all about impact. I try to find the right balance between the experimental and the fine jeweller’s know-how: une joaillerie de la forme,” concludes Hardy.The collection has one of the iconic jewellery pieces called Chaine d'ancre that has been designed as a  chocker with a big chunk of rock crystal.The French high fashion luxury goods manufacturer, Hermes was established in 1837. Its specialities are ready-to-wear, leather, watches, lifestyle accessories, perfumery, home furnishings, and jewellery.Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the collection http://www.blouinartinfo.com Founder: Louise Blouin

English Heritage builds the “Ultimate Sandcastle”

English Heritage, a registered charity that manages the National Heritage Collection, has built the “Ultimate Sandcastle” formed out of 29 tonnes of sand. It features all the characteristics of a huge fortification at Dover Castle as part of its #LoveCastles (crowdfunding appeal that encourages families to visit the nation’s forts and castles) summer season. The “Ultimate Sandcastle” is based on the best techniques from hundreds of years of castle design. It includes strong defensive features such as curtain walls and inner walls, crenellations, a drawbridge, portcullis, gatehouse and a great tower.The sand sculpture, which took five days to make, has been created at Dover Castle in Kent ahead of a sandcastle building weekend at English Heritage castles across the country.Roy Porter, English Heritage senior properties curator and creator of the Ultimate Sandcastle, said: “A castle is surely one of the most awe-inspiring sights but if you look closely, all is not what it seems. These amazing structures are a brilliant mix of ages and types, reflecting changing threats and fashions over centuries.”“By studying hundreds of years of trial and error by the real castle builders, our ultimate sandcastle contains everything you’d like to see, with each element showing off castle-building ‘perfection’ from a different era. I hope people will be inspired to build their very own Ultimate Sandcastle this summer — and support English Heritage to care for all our real castles,” he added.Jamie Wardley, Sand in Your Eye sand sculptor, said: “At Sand in Your Eye we’re used to creating great, big sand sculptures all over the world, but this was definitely a once in a lifetime experience. To be able to build and sculpt the most perfect castle, not only from a visual point of view but also historically using Roy’s research was a real first for us. Bringing the ultimate sandcastle to life in the grounds of the real, ancient Dover Castle is something we won’t easily forget.”English Heritage looks after 66 castles across England — more than any other organisation in the UK. To preserve these castles, the charity employs some of the country’s best castle experts.http://www.blouinartinfo.com/              Founder: Louise Blouin
