This hectic interlude has nothing to do with New Year's Eve, the school holidays or the scheduling of a rowdy snowboarding jamboree on the mountain. The end of January is World Economic Forum time in Switzerland, where the most important people on the planet will be choosing the chocolate-box diplomacy of Klosters, Just a short ski away from the concrete hotels and shopping centres of neighbouring Davos, for their convention base. The Luegisland chalet may host Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni... or Bono. Why do the big hitters, game-changers, politicians, money men, Euro-aristos and all-weather downhillers come to Klosters ? Because the little Graubunden village does the low-key and discreetly well-appointed snow-and-security thing better than any other resort in the Alps. If it's world-class shopping, apres-ski sushi and party-like-a-Russian #nightclubs you're looking for in a winter sports destination, head for St Moritz or Courchevel. Klosters, meanwhile, is a fabulously snooty, super-civilised, immaculately run farming community that just happens to have world-class skiing at its doorstep. During a high #season week you might just catch a glimpse of Johnny Depp, Julia Roberts, the king of Sweden or Princes Charles walking the aisles at the local supermarket, but you won't see a single franchised retail outlet anywhere. When in Klosters, your schedule is get up early, have a hearty breakfast, ski,ski,ski. Stop for a slab of cremeschnitte and a shot of schnapps. Ski a bit more. Dinner. Disco, maybe. Yes, Klosters might require a more vigorous, thigh-burning schedule than other resorts, but rest assured you are following in the tracks of writers, playboys, Hollywood legends, lotharios, divas, adventurers... more information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klosters

Reimagining the entire visual language for a car company is a Herculean task, but he managed it and the #Trezor ushers in phase two. An advanced carbon - fibre chassis underpins its swooping bodywork, but the real kicker is the Trezor's all-eletric powertrain. #Renault has been one of the prime movers in the groundbreaking Formula E race series since its inception in 2014, and the company is also Europe's bestselling electric vehicle manufacturer. So the Trezor's 260kW, 350hp motor is battle-hardened and because electric power units deliver all their torque from a standstill, it will rocked to 62mph in less than four seconds. The Trezor's exterior channels some of the most influential car designs of all time: Jaguar's XKSS and Pininfarina's 1970 Modulo, among others. Its body is covered in tiny little hexagons that change form as they flow into the car's curves. There are no A-pillars, so the screen wraps around in an uninterrupted flow, like the visor on a helmet. Yet wood is also a major structural element; there's a naturally finished wooden frame under the vast bonnet that houses sumptuous leather luggage. The occupants access the cabin via a massive single-piece canopy, which hinges forward on flawlessly engineered struts. Inside, the analogue and digital face-off continues, and though the Trezor's lipstick-red cabin has a reconfigurable OLED instrument panel, saddle leather and plump carpet are old-school luxury signifiers. "I think it's a beatiful object," Van den Acker says. "We're a popular brand, and we need to make cars that are easy to like." They need to make this.

I remember the day well, the trio of friends I was with, the crows a mish-mash of tropes-the elderly, toddlers, teens,nuns Hasidic jews, women in hijabs-that moved as an amoebic unit, lurching across London. On a cold,grey Saturday in February 2003, I lined up on the Embankment, ready to march to Hyde Park in protest of the Iraw war in one of the biggest day of protest the world had ever seen. Tony Blair had mobilised the troops so we mobilised ourselves. I was 15,and when I went out I borrowed my dad's Nokia 3210. Its talents were texts, photne calls and Snake. Those days were a seminal moment in the history of communication. It was the crack of dawn of the digital age, before social media existed, before we felt the need to broadcast our breakfasts everyday and post selfies of existences superior in their appearance to their reality. At my liberal north London grammer school it was normal and encouraged to be politically aware, to discourse on current affairs, to have opinions on social injustice, politics, classism and racism. We talked about these topics in the classroom and we talked about them in the Wetherspoons on Camden High Street over $1 bottles of WKD. Iargued with my friends over the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, our throats hoarse from smoking endless B&H Golds in the woods next to school, dodging the resident flasher. We had the privilege of a good education, and we were defiant, opnionated and hopeful. We were #woke. In fact the term hadn't been invented then, though its essence has always existed. It arose out of the Black Lives Matter movement, which surfaced following the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in 2012 and the ensuing acquittal of his killer, George Zimmerman. #StayWoke accompanied social posts about police brutality, racism and the industrial prison complex, reminding us to look beyond face value and to question the status quo. Nearly five years after Martin's death, #woke is one of MTV's top slang words for 2016 and the Urban Dictonary defines #wokeness as being socially aware in relation specifially to social injustice. Matt Mcgorry, the one-legged guard in Orange Is The New Black, has a whole Buzzfeed article dedicated to his wokeness, with pictures of him reading The New Jim Crow with witty captions acknowledging his own white privilege. But what does it really mean to be woke in Britain today ? I pose this question knowing that I haven't marched for anything for a long time and knowing that my dinner party conversation is less toppical than it once was, my politicising mosly relagted to social media. After the last general election something happened on #twitter. Thousands of Brits annoucned that - so incesed were they at the prospect of a Tory government - they were moving to Scotland. The comedian David Trent noticed what was going on. "I understood the idea," he says, "but after seeing 20 of them in a row, I thought of course you're nt f**ing moving."
THIS isn't Thomas Heatherwick's first rodeo. The British designer behind the 2012 Olympic Torch, the new Routemaster bus and the propesed Garden Bridge across the Thames knows how fearless design can divide opinion. So no wonder when he unveiled his plans for Vessel, a 150ft Escher-like creation with2,400 steps, he called out some snarky comparisons before anyone else could have the pleasure: it resembled a rubbish bin, he said; it was inspired by a skip. Whatever your sentiment (Art News' reviewer said it was " so ill- conceived that at first I thought it had to be a joke"), this centrepiece for the $25 billion Hudson Yards skyscraper development on the West Side is happenening- and will be a significant addition to the Manhattan skyline when finished in 2018 Heatherwick's hope is that it will fill with people delighting in its multitudinous perspectives on the city and runners repuposing it as a jungle gym. We suspect he will be vindicated. [img]http://www.letspal.com/PF.Base/file/attachment/2016/12/c8206e28e0d70ce4c6172c9cb3377859_view.jpg[/img]

A self-made winner, the Scorpio man rarely knows the pain of defeat. His stubbornness and resourcefulness will drive him to keep trying, determined to get what he wants. He is also hard working and enjoys the satisfaction of basking in the fruits of his labor. All Scorpios have a long-term strategy and approach to life, so if you lose a battle with a Scorpio man today, it doesn’t mean he’s given up. He’s probably just biding his time and waiting for an opportunity tomorrow. This sign is nothing if not resolute. Steamy Scorpios include Joaquin Phoenix, Matthew McConaughey, Leonardo di Caprio and Chris Noth The Scorpio man’s charisma and magnetic charm explode into a shower of sparks in the bedroom. Impossible to resist, he is darkly sexy and very intense. In the aftermath of sex with a Scorpio the phrase “best I’ve ever had” is often used to describe the encounter. His intuition and passion make the Scorpio man a perfect lover. An enigma between the sheets as well as out of them, this sense of mystery is often what draws so many lovers to a Scorpion’s den. They are not usually disappointed by what they find there. If you’re looking for safety, security, and missionary, then this Scorpion is not for you. Adventurous and lusty, the Scorpio man will try anything once, even if it’s just to say he’s been there, done that and doesn’t think too much of it. Love for a Scorpio man is both powerful and passionate, a catalyst that changes his entire life and outlook. He is a caring and devoted lover, if a little possessive. This possessiveness is just the Scorpio way of expressing his love. Behind his aloof exterior, the Scorpion is sensitive and loving but he will only let down his guard and show this side of his personality to the right partner. Scorpios are typically considered most compatible with Pisces and Cancer. The Scorpio man will be a success in whatever career path he chooses to follow. Tirelessly hard working, this man has a powerful work ethic which makes him an in-demand employee who’s liked and respected by his supervisors and fellow workers alike. When you consider his natural perceptiveness, a Scorpio man would do well in the areas of journalism, psychology, psychiatry, scientific research, and criminology. The Scorpio man has a need to be in control, so he manages money very well – usually. True to the intricate nature of this man, a compulsive behavior may sometimes take over and cause him to fork over money on an extravagance that’s not really needed, but looks good in the driveway. On the positive side, the Scorpio man can control his spending and will easily switch from needless expenditures to sitting with his banker and discussing appropriate financial investments for the future. Since Scorpio is considered the sexiest sign of the Zodiac, what color could be more appropriate for this man than red? You won’t see him all dressed in crimson unless he’s presenting himself as Santa Claus, but his pin-striped suit could be accessorized with a red silk tie. And the color of that car he drives? Expect the Scorpio man to be dressed in the latest styles with clothing selected to accent his strong physique and natural good looks. His jewelry will be well designed – distinctive, but not garish. From jeans to tuxedos, the Scorpio gentleman knows how to dress. Tags and quote

Her lofty ambition and inner drive often leave everyone else behind in the dust A Capricorn woman neither falls in love at first sight nor wastes time on mindless flirtations. Love is serious stuff and should not to be trifled with. She believes in love, but she will have no truck with fate. Ever convinced of her own abilities, she takes matters of the heart into her own hands, though it may be awhile before she makes her move. Observant and discriminating, she spends some time to get to know her partner, and will usually allow herself to fall in love completely when all the outcomes have been considered. Sometimes, however, she is taken off guard, and emotions overcome her. While the Capricorn woman would like you to believe that she is the epitome of cool, calm pragmatism, nothing could be further from the truth in the bedroom. If you unpeel a Capricorn woman out of her boardroom suit, or her reserved and understated casual wear, you will find a willing, passionate lover, eager to experiment between the sheets. She won’t need flash or fanciful fantasies, just an emotional connection with her lover. Only strong, thoughtful, and sexy partners need apply, as the Capricorn woman will take you through your paces and is likely to outlast you! Medicine, military, mom, politician, athlete, banker, manager, construction, the arts, business owner – these are some of the professions associated with the sign. While there are many Capricorn performers, there are even more that choose a life behind the scenes in directing, producing, or management. Ms. Capricorn is comfortable working in an organized and structured environment where she will offer her many skills. She does seek to move up in the business world and when she gets there she’ll make a very good boss. However, she won’t make impulsive, premature moves in order to get there. Security is very important to her. She is responsible and accountable. Even as a child, Ms. Capricorn probably had a savings account, piggy bank or both. This sign can be very frugal as they are not only saving for a rainy day but also to enjoy their retirement years. Capricorns have a much stronger awareness of time than the other signs, and they do worry about their future. Money equals security to them. The more money this woman has the more generous she can be with it if she chooses to. However, although Capricorn women do tend to hold on tightly to their money and possessions, they are generally not greedy or excessively materialistic. They simply feel too vulnerable and insecure without a solid backup plan. The Capricorn woman knows that it takes hard work and disciplined patience to be successful, so her finances are typically in order and plans for the future are established to provide steady growth and financial stability in her later years. You’ll not find any risk taking ventures in her portfolio. She’s not typically a gambler, but if she does play some games, don’t expect big bets or squandering of any winnings. When those bells ring she’ll cash in and call it a day. Status and image are important to a Capricorn, and you will rarely find the goat with a messy coat. Her outfits are sharp and individual, much like herself, and usually comprise business suits and pointed heels when at work. Off duty, her style is relaxed but never overly casual. A Capricorn woman is not a label diva, preferring practical clothes over ridiculous straight-off-the-catwalk concoctions. Accessories and expensive jewelry are a Capricorn’s favorite splurges.

Fluid like water, she is both peaceful and passionate. She is a tidal force of perplexing emotion, and can be stubborn, compliant, furious, and docile, all in the same hour. This sign is the least precise of the zodiac and you’d be hard pressed to spot a Cancer woman amongst the crowd. She is strong willed and persistent, but can sometimes be reserved, drawing away and into her own shell if disturbed or provoked. The Cancerian woman is sensitive – very sensitive – but not only to her needs, but to the needs of others, making her one of the most sympathetic and caring women of the Zodiac. If you criticize her she may very well take it personally and it may not be forgotten! This is the first water sign of the zodiac and the Cancer woman is ruled by the Moon, endowing her with awesome intuition and imagination. She is deeply intuitive, and if she says she doesn’t feel right about someone, it pays to take notice. She won’t know the reason, but she will probably be proved right sooner or later. Similarly, her unerring instinct will tell her at once if someone is to be trusted. This is not about being judgmental – it’s about instincts and feelings. A Cancer woman is sympathetic and sensitive to others around her. This is due to her high intuition and deep emotions. Famous Cancer women include Liv Tyler, Princess Diana, Michelle Kwan, and Lindsay Lohan. Slowly, slowly, as the Italians say. For any Cancer woman, romance is part and parcel of love – the gifts, flowers, and love notes that form the traditional woo-and-win process are essential to her. The Cancer woman is slow to fall in love and refuses to be rushed. Once there, however, she is a devoted and protective lover. She can be hurt unintentionally, so her partner must be tactful and sensitive. It takes time for Cancerians to learn to trust another, and the crab is shy and reserved when it comes to matters of the heart. When in love, they are patient and will persevere in the face of any obstacle for the cause of true love. Possessing a high capacity to love, the Cancer woman makes an exceptional partner. With the right person, she will toss caution to the wind and show you more adventure than you thought possible. Sex is a slow, sensual dance with the Cancer woman. She needs to have an emotional connection with her partner. She will trust you to lead and if you unlock the right moves, she can tango with the best of them. Her hidden flamboyance and responsiveness may be surprising, but remember that still waters run deep in your Cancer lover. She loves seduction and sensual fantasies. She enjoys being made love to and is eager to learn. Sex is always attuned with love for her, and bedroom encounters with this water sign are usually pure liquid pleasure. Just because the Cancer woman sometimes keeps a low-profile in the workplace doesn’t mean that she’s not interested in advancement and success. Being a good judge of character and having sharp intuition, this woman is an excellent business person. She is the quiet but competent worker to watch for. Most of the time, the Cancer woman handles money wisely. Keenly perceptive, she knows how to deal with people. Combine those two attributes and she will have no problem with careers in teaching, nursing, counseling, or journalism. The Cancer female is interested in home and hearth. She loves being around children and animals. She is highly creative, musical, and literate and also has killer business instincts. But the nurturing Cancer woman’s true calling isn’t working outside of the home – it’s running one of her own or running a business of her own from her home. Other than being a mother to children or pets, the Cancerian woman has many options depending on her wide range of interest. Naturally nurturing, she can be a pediatrician, veterinarian, or open a thriving daycare center. If she loves to read romantic novels she will find that her storytelling skills are worthy of being published. To cook is something she does almost as naturally as breathe – or eat – and she is able to whip up some scrumptious meals. Ms. Cancer will have a bank account and/or money stashed all over her home. She is a natural saver who understands the value of money. To her, money equals security. It also equals a home and even if she is living in a tiny apartment, she will scrimp and save to achieve her ultimate goal – proud homeowner. The Cancer woman is cautious about everything she does in her life and the handling of money is no exception. She is a shrewd investor and the goal of any financial planning is based on long-term stability. This woman isn’t going to be fooled by get-rich-quick schemes, or easily lured into buying oceanfront property in the desert. She does have her guilty pleasures, however, and will splurge now and again. The Cancer woman prefers traditional outfits with an emphasis on femininity and comfort. A typical Cancer woman will choose flimsy organza over tight denim and loose silk over PVC leggings. Don’t be fooled by her apparently conservative fashion choices. She likes the touch of watery satin on her skin and will often wear a luxurious, matching set of lingerie beneath her conventional outerwear. Pale blue and silvers are favored by the Cancer woman and these may be reflected in her clothing styles and home décor. You might even find some interesting Moon and stars themes in her home. The Cancer woman is stylish and up to date in fashion, but will maintain a somewhat conservative wardrobe. Sensitive to criticism, she’ll dress up to look good, but not enough to be the center of attention. She does not follow the latest craze emanating from the catwalks. Instead, she favors timeless labels and cuts. As every crab knows, trends are like tides, and they don’t last long. Her favorite accessories are charm necklaces and pearls.
