Many of Indonesia’s ethnic groups have strong kinship groupings based upon patrilineal, matrilineal, or bilateral descent. Such peoples are primarily in Sumatra, Kalimantan, Maluku, Sulawesi, and the Eastern Lesser Sundas. Patrilineal descent is most common, though matriliny is found in a few societies, such as the Minangkabau of West Sumatra and southern Tetun of West Timor. Some societies in Kalimantan and Sulawesi, as well as the Javanese, have bilateral kinship systems. Italy was ready for the new ideas of the French Enlightenment after the economic depression, plagues, wars, famines, and invasions of the seventeenth century. Italian intellectuals resented the supranational character of the papacy, the immunities of clerics from the state’s legal and fiscal apparatus, the church’s intolerance and intransigence in theological and institutional matters, and its wealth and property, and demanded reforms. Some changes in administration, taxation, and the economy were made by Habsburg rulers Maria Theresa and Joseph, but these reforms did not go far enough. The French Revolution and Napoleon’s army demonstrated that a united Italy was possible and that arms might be the only way to achieve it. Higher education has suffered from a lecture-based system, poor laboratories, a shortage of adequate textbooks in Indonesian, and a poor level of English-language proficiency, which keeps many students from using such foreign textbooks as are available.

In Salman Rushdie’s collection of short stories, East, West, Rushdie explores the lives of people of eastern ethnicity and the conflicts they confront in the western environment (Ho). The collection of stories is divided into three sets: the East, the West, and the combination of both East and West. “Good Advice is Rarer than Rubies” deals with the happenings in the East, “At the Auction of the Ruby Slippers” deals with the happenings in the West, and “The Courter” deals with the cultural hybridization of both cultures (Ho). These stories are very similar in the characterization, symbolism, and theme. American women often dress to make an impression or to look a specific way to fit society’s standards. Of course, some French women do this as well, but overall, they have a different attitude about style. But it was not until the postwar years of the 20th Century that Italy’s international fashion industry came into its own. Largely responsible was aristocratic entrepreneur Giovanni Battista Giorgini, who gathered designs from the best tailors and dressmakers in the country, including Pucci, the Fontana sisters and Capucci. The first fashion shows were staged in the grand, chandeliered Sala Bianca at Palazzo Pitti in Florence, and the fact that the designs were around 30% cheaper than their Parisian counterparts meant they were snapped up by buyers – and soon spread rapidly to the department stores of the US. Not planning ahead, even for a health care crisis Common sense tells us that as we age we should expect to require some assistance , or even total care at some point. Yet, many aging adults find aging gracefully difficult. Fear of aging and a need to hold on to their independence causes many seniors not to ask for help. Those in the early stages of dementia may not recognize their need. Family members need to prepare themselves so that if a health care crisis does occur that their aging loved one will have some protection. Preparing for this will take time and energy. It requires learning about Medicare, Medicaid, insurance policies, legal forms and health care options available. Being prepared, can decrease stress and anxiety in a time of crisis, and gives you a sense of confidence as you assist your aging parent in making important decision. What products do we have today for skin care? Here comes the hand and body lotions, cleansers and toners, moisturizers, shave gel and after shave splash and many more.

TIP: Sulfates can be found in cleansers for the hair, body and face. Look for products that are free from or are low in Sulfates. Sulfates are detergents and remove oil (good and bad) which disrupts the natural skin barrier causing redness, dryness and cracked skin. Styles that appeared shiny and sleek were a common thread throughout the ’90s. If you use prescription acne medication or after cleaning your face with a moisturizing cream or toner, you may want to simply wash your face with water at room temperature before applying a skin care cream. This helps to keep the skin from being stripped of moisture which can help to prevent breakouts. Death and the Afterlife. It is widely believed that the deceased may influence the living in various ways, and funerals serve to ensure the proper passage of the spirit to the afterworld, though cemeteries are still considered potentially dangerous dwellings for ghosts. In Java the dead may be honored by modest family ceremonies held on Thursday evening. Among Muslims, burial must occur within twenty-four hours and be attended by Muslim officiants; Christian burial is also led by a local church leader. The two have separate cemeteries. In Java and other areas there may be secondary rites to assure the well-being of the soul and to protect the living. Funerals, like marriages, call for a rallying of kin, neighbors, and friends, and among many ethnic groups social status may be expressed through the elaborateness or simplicity of funerals. In clan-based societies, funerals are occasions for the exchange of gifts between wife-giving and wife-taking groups. In such societies representatives of the wife-giving group are usually responsible for conducting the funeral and for leading the coffin to the grave. Kardashian style is defining street style these days, and Kanye wouldn’t have it any other way! Kim’s stylist, Monica Rose, has been pushing fashion boundaries with kim – advising on the straight, long hair extensions, the no-makeup look, the lip ring, and the couture street style, which is Kanye’s jam.

They add charm and sophistication to every room they adorn, whether knotted with pile or woven without. Persian rugs have enchanted their admirers for thousands of years, and have universal appeal due to their elaborate designs and use throughout history. Persian rugs have a fascinating history to them, and the fact that they were possessed by Eastern royalty in ancient times is evident in their elaborate stylishness and extravagant designs. They are well known for their high quality and they are produced by a unique blend of domestic and international interests and thus were able to conquer international markets as well. Persian rugs were originally made in Egypt over four thousand years ago and have grown into a commodity around the world.
Start by taking care of your skin now. Your body is made up of what you eat and drink. Eat junk food and drink lots of sweet carbonated water and caffeine, and that’s what your body has to work with. Your skin reflects the state of your health. If your body is full of junk, your skin is likely to be spotty, congested or at least, far from its best. You might get away with it while you are young, but sooner or later, your excesses would catch up with you. Emollients: Dr. Kraffert says these hydrating agents are a must in lotion for dry skin, since they prevent hydration loss while smoothing and softening skin. They come in the form of oils (plant, mineral, or animal), butters (like shea and cocoa), or fatty acids. When riding a Jakarta bus, struggling in post-office crowds, or getting into a football match, one may think that Indonesians have only a push-and-shove etiquette. And in a pedicab or the market, bargaining always delays action. Children may repeatedly shout “Belanda, Belanda” (white Westerner) at a European, or youths shout, “Hey, Mister.” In some places a young woman walking or biking alone is subject to harassment by young males. But public behavior contrasts sharply with private etiquette. In an Indonesian home, one joins in quiet speech and enjoys humorous banter and frequent laughs. People sit properly with feet on the floor and uncrossed legs while guests, men, and elders are given the best seating and deference. Strong emotions and rapid or abrupt movements of face, arms, or body are avoided before guests. Drinks and snacks must be served, but not immediately, and when served, guests must wait to be invited to drink. Patience is rewarded, displays of greed are avoided, and one may be offered a sumptuous meal by a host who asks pardon for its inadequacy. Note: Since cleanliness is an integral part of skin care, make sure that your brushes and sponges are clean before you apply cosmetics to your face. Brushes and sponges can be cleaned with your regular shampoo. Also, do not use expired cosmetics – keep track of their expiration dates. Along with makeup for aging skin, there is help for people with age spots and crow’s feet caused by years of sun worship when they were young. Although there are many products and makeup for aging skin on the market today that can help sun damaged skin, prevention is always the best medicine. It is never too late to use products or makeup that contains sunscreen. There are anti aging products and creams made specifically to add moisture back into dry, lifeless, dull skin that help fade age spots.
Draupadi, the divine emerged daughter of King Draupad, queen wife of Pandavas, the composite avatar of Goddess Shyamala (wife of Dharma), Bharati (wife of Vayu), Shachi (wife of Indra), Usha (wife of Ashwins) and Parvati (wife of Shiva) fell like a weak creeper on the way. She looked pale, her body was cold, she took her last breath on the Bheema’s lap and died in peace realizing his unconditional love. The last words she uttered to Bheema before dying were to be born as the elder brother in next life. Bring the focus to your eyes. Your eyes are your best asset. Especially when framed by lush eyelashes. Since it is summer, go for a waterproof mascara.

From the burgeoning internet to the Style Network, a cable channel that broadcast style- and beauty-centric shows, information about fashion as well as style inspiration suddenly became widely available to anyone with a TV, or, in the later ’90s, a home computer. Identification. The Republic of Indonesia, the world’s fourth most populous nation, has 203 million people living on nearly one thousand permanently settled islands. Some two-to-three hundred ethnic groups with their own languages and dialects range in population from the Javanese (about 70 million) and Sundanese (about 30 million) on Java, to peoples numbering in the thousands on remote islands. The nature of Indonesian national culture is somewhat analogous to that of Indiaâ€”multicultural, rooted in older societies and interethnic relations, and developed in twentieth century nationalist struggles against a European imperialism that nonetheless forged that nation and many of its institutions. The national culture is most easily observed in cities but aspects of it now reach into the countryside as well. Indonesia’s borders are those of the Netherlands East Indies, which was fully formed at the beginning of the twentieth century, though Dutch imperialism began early in the seventeenth century. Indonesian culture has historical roots, institutions, customs, values, and beliefs that many of its people share, but it is also a work in progress that is undergoing particular stresses at the beginning of the twenty-first century.
