hwelyJaeger is the latest British brand to enter makeover mode.

The women’s and men’s wear retailer, which is owned by Coats PLC, has embarked on a drive to reinvigorate its business. The moves include the hiring of a new creative director and design team, the appointment of Bella Freud to do an exclusive women’s collection for Jaeger, the rollout of a new store design, sponsorship of a fantastic TV show and the launch of a new ad campaign.

Jaeger — which operates 56 freestanding stores, including 27 in the U.S. — will show off the first results of its program at a fashion show for press in New York on Thursday. It held a similar show in London two weeks ago.

Snoring Is Far From Serene

Saturday, August 8, 2015 at 1:41 pm

snoring-helpSnoring is one of the biggest culprits for spouses sleeping apart. Those who snore may sleep in another room so that their partners aren’t constantly jabbing them in the ribs to get them to stop. Those who live with a snorer may sleep in another room because earplugs can only do so much when the source of the sound is right next to your face. There are many health reasons why people snore and there are some lifestyle changes that can be done to reduce or eliminate snoring. Identify your stress: if you are feeling stressed out during the day chances are you snore at night. Try to ease back on the smoking and/or drinking before bed. If you take medication just so you can sleep at all, talk to your doctor about different types. If you feel you are overweight that can also contribute to snoring.

The catch with making lifestyle changes is that they all take time. Not everyone can quit smoking overnight. Those who may need to reduce their weight can’t just snap their …

To Choose the RAID Repair that’s the Best

Monday, August 3, 2015 at 10:23 am

It’s a digital world that we live in. Keeping records on paper and taking notes with a pen and notebook have been fiercely replaced with tablets, laptops and smartphones. People don’t call anymore and most business transactions are done via e-mail. Instead of investing money into filing cabinets businesses are investing money in hard drive storage solutions and beefing up their technical support. A lot of businesses employ a RAID set up for their servers which allows them to be more productive and to protect themselves, even if only slightly, from the major upheaval that can ensure when systems are down.

If you’re not a very technical person you probably realize that turning your computer off and on again isn’t going to solve all of your problems. There are some problems that are even too much for those in the tech support section of the company. One of the biggest mistakes a lot of technicians make is assuming they know how to maintain and repair a RAID set up. It’s not always that easy and it’s important …

Snip! Snip! Go The Tags

Friday, July 10, 2015 at 5:01 pm

Skin tags are an unfortunate but natural occurrence. A single person can have anywhere from one to one hundred skin tags on their body at any given time. These little bits of flesh like to crop up in places like the folds of your skin in your neck, your arm pit, groin area and sometimes in your eyelids. While they aren’t very attractive they are mainly harmless, not growing to more than 3mm across at a time. There are lots of ways to remove a skin tag and unless you have one close to your eyes you can do them all from the comfort of your home. We only recommend seeing a doctor if you have a skin tag in a sensitive place like the eye because you don’t want to accidentally injure your poor eyeball and end up losing your sight.

Some of the popular methods for skin tag removal are creams and freezing aids. You can also thread the skin tag by wrapping a thread or piece of floss around the base of it and …

Husband: Lose That Weight!

Tuesday, June 30, 2015 at 8:18 am

husbandIs there more of him to love these days? How women really feel about their mates’ weight–and when to worry about the shape he’s in.

My husband is a conspiracy theorist. But the conspiracies that concern him don’t involve the White House or alien abductions. They concern the dry-cleaning industry of America, which is out to mess with his head by shrinking his suits. No matter what dry cleaner he goes to, the suit comes back smaller! When I point out…
