Converse 2013 Chinese New Year Collection - Year of the Snake 2013



The Sign of the Snake

People born in the Year of the Snake share certain characteristics:  Acute, aware, charming, cunning, elegant, mysterious, passionate, proud, serene, and vain. They are attractive people who take cries with ease and do not become flustered easily.  They are graceful people, exciting and dark at the same time.  They enjoy reading, listening to great music, tasting delicious food, and going to the theater.  They are fascinated with all beautiful things in life.  Many of the most beautiful ladies and men with strongest personalities were born in the Year of the Snake.

Contemplative and private, Snake people are not outwardly emotional.  They usually act according to their own judgment and do not follow the views of others. They can appear cunning and reticent and work very modestly in the business environment.  They will plot and scheme to make certain things turn out exactly as they want them to.  They are not great communicators and can become quite possessive when they set their minds on achieving the interest of a partner.

Snake people become easily stressed and have to avoid hectic schedules or noisy atmospheres.  They need calm and quiet to thrive and succeed.  They must have sleep, relaxation, and peace  to live a long, healthy life.

People born in the Year of the Snake are usually very sophisticated and cultured in their choices for home decoration.  They are elegant and graceful and place emphasis on their comfort when deciding what to decorate with.  They are materialistic and need to have as many of everything as possible.

They become bored easily and therefore change jobs quite frequently.  They are very conscientious and diligent at work.  They are organized and precise, cautious and alert when doing business.  They act confidently, calmly and have a strong sense of responsibility and clear goals. Sometimes, because they like to work alone, they can seem as though they are withholding information or being secretive about some important things.

Snake people are oversuspicious, which is their nature.  They hide their suspicion, and acting as if nothing is on their minds.  They like to think deeply, plan carefully and make a systematic and appropriate exposition of their views. They like to follow the fashion and be properly dressed. And, they usually speak with great care.

Snake people are passionate lovers and show a strong desire for control when associating with others.  They will never forgive anyone who breaks a promise.  They show their resentment with ice-cold hostility instead of bitter words.  Some of the people born in the Year of the Snake may strike their enemies with a deadly blow.

It seems not easy to deal with a person born in the Year of the Snake, especially when he thinks one way and behaves in another.  There always lies an alert heart behind his serene appearance.  He has a strong will and will try his best to hold fast to his position.  He is so cunning that when you think you may have seized him, he has already slipped away.

Snake people will face danger fearlessly and deal with unforeseen disasters. They are not annoyed by lack of money and are usually lucky enough to own everything they need.  They can be successful as long as they avoid excess spending.  Although they are intuitive, they should avoid dive right into decisions without weighing the consequences.

Red Nose Day - Comic Relief 2013

Design Stella McCartney.

Jessie J: ''Shaving my head for charity is something I've promised to do for a long time and Comic Relief has given me the opportunity to try and raise as much money as possible for good causes by doing it. I've loved watching Red Nose Day since I was a kid and I'm so excited to join this year's team of celebrity fun raisers and help support the campaign.


Something like that?


Red Nose Day on Friday March 15, then...


The charity states that its aim is to "bring about positive and lasting change in the lives of poor and disadvantaged people, which we believe requires investing in work that addresses people's immediate needs as well as tackling the root causes of poverty and injustice.".]

One of the fundamental principles behind working at Comic Relief is the "Golden Pound Principle" where every single donated pound (£) is spent on charitable projects. All operating costs, such as staff salaries, are covered by corporate sponsors, or interest earned on money waiting to be distributed.



Critics of Comic Relief and other BBC charity events say that the BBC is diverting funds from well established charities and smaller charities, there is no accountability for who decides on where the money is held or spent, and the main beneficiary is the BBC – goodwill and free programming – the bankers who hold the funds – and especially the celebrities promoting themselves on prime-time TV for free.


The Red Nose

The most prominent symbol of Comic Relief is a plastic/foam "red nose", which is given in various supermarkets and charity shops such as Oxfam in exchange for a donation to the charity and to make others laugh. People are encouraged to wear the noses on Red Nose Day to help raise awareness of the charity. The design of the nose has been changed each year, beginning with a fairly plain one, which later grew arms, turned into a tomato and even changed colour. In 2007, the red nose was made of foam; this was to facilitate the "growing" of the nose (by rolling it in the user's hands) to keep in line with that year's tagline, The Big One. See the table below. Larger noses are also available, and are designed to be attached to the fronts of cars, buildings, and, in 2009, a 6 metre diameter inflatable nose was attached to the DFDS Seaways cruiseferry King of Scandinavia. However, the nose's material used for buildings was classed as a fire hazard and was banned from the Comic Relief Does Fame Academy shows.

Chronology of noses

As of 2013, there have been 20 different Red noses over 14 Comic Relief shows[26]. Three noses per event have been released since 2009.

1988 The Red Nose Plain red plastic.
1989 My Nose Had a face, made with rose scented plastic.
1991 Hands Nose Had hands and a face, made of plastic.
1993 Tomato Nose Had a tomato stalk and a face, made of plastic.
1995 The Heat Sensitive Nose Red plastic which turned either yellow or pink when heated. The words 'MY NOSE' were embossed on it.
1997 Shaggy Nose Clear plastic shell covered in red fur.
1999 The Big Red Hooter Faceless with gold glitter, and when squeezed it 'hooted'.
2001 Whoopee Nose Red head with inflated cheeks, when squeezed the tongue inflated.
2003 Hairy Nose Had gooey eyes that squeezed out and a tuft of red hairs. It came with gel for the hair. When worn upside down, the hair can resemble a moustache.
2005 Big Hair & Beyond (Chad) Had a smiley face and colourful elastic hair. It came with red and yellow face paint and stickers for the nose.
2007 The Big One Faceless, made of foam which made it more comfortable; came with stickers to decorate the nose with, and a Chocpix chocolate[27].
2009 This One, That One, The Other One Three noses were available. "This One" had a big smile with mouth open. "That One" had glasses and a smile with the teeth closed. "The Other One" had a shocked look.

All three came with six stickers depicting each of the noses, the RND 2009 logo and tag-line "Do something funny for money". Also included were a "Hello, my nose is:" name tag sticker and a small booklet of nose-related jokes.

2011 Monster Noses There were three different 'monster noses' for RND 2011. "Honkus" had a furry face, a large mouth with sharp teeth and small eyes near the top of the head. "Chucklechomp" had small round spectacles and a large mouth. "Captain Conk" was roughly based on a pirate, with a Jolly Rogerbandana and an eyepatch. Each nose came with a circular leaflet which contained monster related jokes and pictures of the three monster noses.

2011 was also the year an Augmented Reality version of the nose was created as part of the Red Nose Day website. Via a webcam the users head was converted into a giant red nose which could then be recorded as a short movie and posted to Facebook and/or YouTube.

2013 The Nose With Toes For the third year running, three noses are available and this year they are dinosaur-themed. "Dinomite" has a spiky hairdo and a large pointy-toothed growl with small eyes near the top of the head. "T-Spex" has a big nose and black thick-rimmed glasses. "Triceytops" is based upon a Triceratops with a large smile and a spiked 'mane'. Their slogan is 'Meet the diNOSEaurs!'

True love

You know who you are
in rough times you see who your real friends are
and who are disloyal and only think about themselves.
Hit some low points yesterday
and needed support
none to be found where it ought to be
but surprisingly someone embraced me with unselfish concern.
That"s true love.
