Dress Code Basics

Dress code means the ability to dress in an appropriate way. It is the cross cultural clothing rules you follow, the standards of appearance in different situations varying from business meetings to hanging out with friends.

Generally dress code is influenced by the sphere of your activity. For example a bank employee and a PR manager have to wear different clothes. The more you are connected to the business sphere the more severe the clothing requirements are. Artists and journalists can feel relatively free in choosing their outfit. However they have some rules as well which can be rather difficult to follow.

Nowadays, as the distant work became possible a new dilemma has emerged – is it better to become a free-lancer and work at home or remain a part of the office community? The best solution is to combine these two options and start the practice of co-working.

Co-working presents a model of work in which people remain independent while performing their tasks on the same space. This method is good for freelancers and different groups of people creating and launching new projects. On the one hand, you remain free from being bossed around. On the other hand, you receive an opportunity to communicate with the others and develop new useful business connections.

I didn’t mean to do it.

One of my favorite comedy-dramas is Stepmom (1998) by Chris Columbus starring Julia Roberts, Susan Sarandon and Ed Harris. It is supposed to be very moving and touching film indeed. You have definitely watched it, I’m sure. And do you remember the scene wherein Jackie (Susan Sarandon) along with her kids Anna (Jena Malone) and Ben (Liam Aiken) dancing around the house late in the night and singing amazingly beautiful song Ain’t No Mountain high Enough? This very scene seems to be one the most dramatic and funny at the same time. The feeling of drama, sadness and joy is intensified by the song written and performed by famous American soul singer Marvin Gaye (1939-1984). His own life was also dramatic especially his last years.

It is not necessary to be an astronaut to visit another planet; spaceship may be forgotten as well. There are some places on the Earth which produce impression that you have committed interspatial travel and found yourself in the completely different world. One of these places I want to tell you about is Peking. China is a strange country from the European point of view, but Peking presents the climax point of its strangeness and uniqueness.

The Art of Being Muse

Tags

One of the most obscure mysteries in the world of art is what is the source of masters’ inspiration? Artists create such powerful masterpieces that it seems impossible for a human being even to think of such an idea. Behind the scenes, somewhere in the shade of the greatest figures some images are hardly visible – these images are muses, real persons or imagined phantoms who inspire the artists to create new universes.

If you look at the history of creation of works of literature and painting, you will see that there is almost always a woman who gave the artist this particular idea, who was beside him while he was working at the realization of his plan. Let’s take, for example, one of the most extraordinary characters in the world of painting – Salvador Dali. His name is inseparable from the name of his beloved woman, his muse and his inspiration – Gala. She became an image on lots of his pictures; her love and passion guided the artist through life and gave him strength and energy to bring his vivid dreams to the pictures.

Truthful and Weird Excuses For Being Late

Tags

You’re lucky if you an early riser. But the most people find it extremely difficult to get up fifteen minutes earlier and be at work in time. They swallow half of a sandwich, put on the clothes from the nearest hanger, grab a wallet and run out with the hope that the bus driver has also overslept. When they finally arrive for work being only twenty minutes late they face the disaster far worse than an waking up early. What to write in an explanation? Usually some dull note about an awful headache or a low blood pressure is scrabbled in a hurry and the incident is forgotten up to the next 8 a. m.

I’m very keen on art and art history. I’m very interested in art of different styles and genres. Paintings, sculptures, videos, installations, happenings… the list is endless. It doesn’t mean I appreciate any kind of art, I’m just very curious about it and try to understand why and what for this or that piece of art has been created. That’s why I’m very obsessed with movies about art and famous artists. They are only fictions mainly and sometimes the events of the film can differ from actual events. Anyway many of them are just excellent in depicting an artist’s life style, attitude and relations with other people.

So in my post I would like to share my two favorite films about my favorite artist. Here we are.

Is it me or the number of disasters increases insanely fast? I agree that all these things are the nature’s way of telling us we are doing something wrong. Either way, their number is getting bigger. I do realize there is a chance that is has always been this way – it’s just that mass media wasn’t developed that well before. But now it is. And I believe the methods of predicting disasters should be advanced too. Now I just want to specify what I am talking about.

Let’s take a quick review of the disasters that took place 1 – 7 years ago.

1.Volcano in Iceland (2010).

Iceland is famous for its volcanoes. The famous volcano ejection in April 2010 (Eyjafjallajokull) resulted in major problems with air traveling across western and northern Europe. Even if you don’t watch the news, I am sure you heard of it. Ashes reached east cost of the North America, Europe, and even Asia.
