It’s autumn, 1972, and Geoffrey Munn replies to a short-and-sweet newspaper advert. The “charming” manager suggests he tries Wartski, the high society jeweller. Today, Geoffrey is its managing director. “At this stage I should say that I had very little interest in jewellery and considered it a very minor art, if indeed it was an art form at all,” he writes in a book celebrating the firm’s first 150 years – a story of wealth and opulence, royalty... The story of a firm that’s served six generations of the royal family. ” Happily, he emerged at the right Tube station and managed to walk the few hundred yards to 138 Regent Street, where Wartski’s shopfront was made of patinated bronze, gold mosaic and stained glass. “The windows blazed with massive pieces of domestic silver, and diamond brooches and tiaras, set en tremblent , scintillated to the rhythm of traffic in the busy street outside. My sense of mounting apprehension was increased by a daunting display of Royal Warrants, heightened with pure gold, glimmering in the October sunshine. ” The nervous candidate is ushered downstairs into a luxurious room described perfectly five years earlier by James Bond creator Ian Fleming in the 007 novella Property of a Lady. “A tabletop entirely encrusted with opals caught my eye and it remains at Wartski to this day.
Even if you retired your Fitbit or Fuelband to a desk drawer long ago, you may still find room in your heart for another activity-tracking wearable. But instead of merely recording pawsteps, the Voyce band also tracks resting heart and respiratory rates, two biometrics that can provide deep insights into a dog’s health. My border collie mix, Whiskey, has been wearing Voyce for just over a month, and I’ve gathered a wealth of interesting data about just how much activity and sleep she’s really getting—along with reports on her vital signs that would otherwise... It’s also got an annoying, ever-blinking LED, and looks like cold, sterile medical equipment. The manufacturer, i4C Innovations, says it’s working on fixing some of these issues, but even the 1. 0 version of Voyce is super-cool technology. The collar tracks Whiskey’s heart rate and breathing when she’s at home, kicking back on the couch—cool, calm and perfectly content. A month’s worth of doggie data The collar was originally slated to be available by summer 2014, but Voyce hit a snag with FCC approval. The device’s special patented technology is a sensor that uses low-frequency radio waves to measure heart rate (tracking pulses of the carotid artery) and breathing rate (tracking muscle movement in doggie’s chest).
After midnight, Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk rose to give an emotional speech praising the Minnesota Senate's long history as it prepared to vacate its chambers for a year of construction. Faced with a midnight deadline to adjourn in the state constitution, the House and Senate each rushed through votes in the final minutes that left many lawmakers protesting. The Senate appeared to actually go two minutes past its deadline. The House approved a jobs bill, which funds economic development programs and grants, with seconds to spare as Speaker Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, ignored representatives demanding to speak and closed the vote as soon as a majority had been reached. Though the Legislature managed to pass a jobs bill just before their midnight deadline, other key measures were left hanging when the clock struck 12. The Senate approved but the House didn't pass a bonding bill with money to pay for the Capitol... The House approved but the Senate did not pass a bill funding environmental and artistic causes. Mark Dayton has promised to veto, also led to nothing despite running until half an hour before the deadline. If Dayton vetoes that budget as expected, lawmakers will have to return for a special session to fund Minnesota.
