Lists run the gamut from the ones people clamour to be on - Schindler's, Santa Claus's - to those that send a shudder down the spine - Senator McCarthy's, anything the HSE ever came up with. Where does a gay power list come into this. We're not that far away from a time when being gay was something of which people were ashamed. Have we really come so far that we can celebrate a group of gay people for their success. Or is the notion of a gay power list in dubious taste. For a short-attention-span generation, flicking distractedly from Netflix to news, lists also let us know where exactly we're at - how many billions shy of Hilary Weston our bank accounts are. For LIFE's list, we defined power as influence in society, the ability to change opinions, the person before whom a restaurant maitre d' might most quake, should they demand a table. What stood out above all about the list was the sheer number of prominent Irish people who are now out. If we based this list on the incidence of homosexuality in the general population, this list should only constitute about 10pc of the influence in the country. What makes this list more timely is that this supernova of influence is a relatively recent phenomenon.
In the early hours of February 6, 1993, India’s finest photographic archive, that of Bourne and Shepherd, photographers by ‘special appointment to the Viceroy’, went up in smoke. Viceroys in white ties fluttered across the Maidan into the Ganga and were washed down unceremoniously into the Bay of Bengal. So maybe it was no coincidence that the same year, archivists in Bikaner found in a cupboard in a distant wing of the great Lalgarh Palace perhaps the greatest trove of photographs of princely Rajasthan ever collected. These were the photographic archives of the maharajas of Bikaner from 1890 to 1950. Shrouded in a cocoon of neem leaves, the albums had miraculously survived monsoon damp, summer heat and the attention of white ants. The albums were found to contain a complete visual record of an Indian princely state during its transition from a medieval twilight to the dawn of modern India. The early pictures in the collection have a dream-like, fairy-tale quality to them: Bikaner, lost in the vast camel-thorn wastes of the Thar, was a princely oasis of caparisoned elephants and sacred umbrellas, of cumulus beards and moustaches... Behind the lattice screens of the Moon Palace, princesses fanned themselves to fend off the summer heat.
com's live coverage of the police operation to clear the remaining Occupy sites, after 74 days of protest. 40pm: During the arrests of protesters, Federation of Students secretary general Alex Chow Yong-Kang said the Occupy movement might come to an end after the clearance, but he expected a "second wave of occupation" in the coming months. "[Occupy] may come to an end temporarily, but the second half will be coming in the next half-year. Chow said he was expecting to face at least six counts of charges, such as unlawful assembly and incitement. Chow said the student group would welcome further dialogue with the administration, but he urged the government to respond with a clear roadmap and time table towards genuine universal suffrage. Most of the thouroughfare has been cleared of major obstacles except for pockets of areas where protesters are digging their heels in. Lawmaker Fernando Cheung Chiu-hung and district councillor Yum Kwok-tung sat under a tent, surrounded by mounds... Yum, who had been here since 4pm after being chased out of the now-demolished study area, said: "I'd like to see them arrest me, but I want to know their reasons for doing so. ".

Overall, great value for money. Ours came in excellent condition and I particulalry like the pick-up at a Fedex location locally for free option, saved me a long drive to Walmart. I gave the clock 2 stars for features because it has none, other than it tells the time reasonably accurately, and, if you are noise sensitive, do not buy this clock, it ticks quite loudly... I'm still trying to understand why they make an electric driven clock "tick" so loudly!! It doesn't seem to bother kids...
