Franco Sarto

Franco Sarto is a European designer of fashion footwear. He is considered to be an Italian romantic while using German engineering methods for designing footwear. Sarto lives in Venice, Italy, but the majority of his shoes are made in Brazil. Brazil is an ideal location for Sarto because it has an abundance of resources, materials, and quality craftsmanship that can be seen in countries such as Spain and Italy, but at reasonable prices.

History of Franco Sarto Shoes

Franco Sarto was born just outside Venice, Italy in 1949. He worked part time in a shoe factory as a teenager and learned the intricacies of the business over time. In his early twenties, he moved to Stra, Italy and set up a partnership with another designer. They called their studio, Sarto and Candian and sold to worldwide retailers and wholesalers. They also designed collections for many companies and exhibited collections at major European fashion and footwear shows.

Sarto was hired by Caressa, Inc. in his 30s to work on SRO shoes. He eventually left Caressa to form a new company in Brazil called Nickels. Nickels was a huge success and soon moved to Italy to emerge into the fashion footwear industry. In 1994, Sarto left the company to create a brand with his name on the collection. The brand was acquired by different companies over time until it finally resided with Bennett Footwear Group and Danelle from Pentland USA.

Franco Sarto shoes continue to be made in Brazil with Italian designs and materials provided by Sarto. Sarto still lives in Stra with his wife and two children. While Sarto continues to make new designs in footwear fashion, he offers guidance to his son Massimo, who is now trying to design his own contemporary styles of shoes.

8 Ways To Prevent Osteoporosis And Heart Disease During Menopause

Osteoporosis causes bones to lose mass and density. As the bones become porous and brittle, the chance of fracture is greatly increased. Often there are no symptoms and a person only discovers that they have osteoporosis when they suffer a fracture.

Heart disease includes a number of conditions affecting the structures or function of the heart. They includes coronary artery disease (including heart attack), abnormal heart rhythms or arrythmias, heart failure, heart valve disease, congenital heart disease, heart muscle disease (cardiomyopathy), pericardial disease, aorta disease and Marfan syndrome, vascular disease (blood vessel disease).

Women, during menopause, might be lack of estrogen. This causes bones to lose calcium and become weaker, putting them at risk for severe bone loss or osteoporosis. A lack of estrogen also increases risk of heart disease.

However, there are steps you can do to prevent osteoporosis and heart disease, such as:

1. Get enough calcium to keep your bones strong. Before menopause, you need about 1,000 mg of calcium per day. After menopause, you need 1,500 mg per day. You also can talk with your physician about taking medicine to help preserve bone and slow down bone loss. Get at least 30 minutes of physical activity on most days of the week. Try weightbearing exercises, like walking, running, or dancing.

2. Eat healthy by including plenty of whole grain products, vegetables, and fruits in your diet. Choose a diet low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol.

3. Maintain a healthy weight. Ask your health care provider what a healthy weight is for you.

4. Control your blood pressure. Ask your health care provider what a healthy number is for you and how often you need it checked.

5. If you have diabetes, control and monitor your blood sugar levels.

6. Lower your cholesterol to the right level. Ask your health care provider what a healthy level is for you.

8. If you drink alcohol, limit it to no more than one drink per day.

So, if you think that your menopause has begun, it is important for you to pay attention to the eight essential ways to prevent osteoporosis and heart disease.

Victoria Beckham Rides a Horse

Victoria Beckham is hardly one to smile at much. Oh, just to see her crack a smile while riding horseback, now that is some serious news. Wait? Horseback? That’s right Posh Spice took a ride on a horse, alongside her son, Brooklyn, who just celebrated a birthday.

Of course, no one is really focusing on Brooklyn and the motherson time that they shared. No, everyone wants to talk about Victoria Beckham and the horse. Wasn’t it just a couple of days ago when Beckham, who is a budding fashion designer, and a fashionista in her own right, was discussing that she wouldn’t be caught dead out in Uggs and a track suit? Now she is out, riding a horse. No one wears designer dresses and stilettos while in the saddle, do they?

What the world wouldn’t do to see Victoria Beckham in a pair of tight jeans and some cowboy boots. Of course, the only picture that Beckham tweeted was one of Brooklyn. One thing is for sure, the two must have had some fun.

Mais pourquoi ces bottes en particulier? En partie, c’est la volont permanente par les consommateurs acheter dans un patrimoine et de s’accrocher une marque qui est presque une antimarque. Mais c’est aussi, comme le dit Buccini, une tendance qui est “100% axe sur la clbrit.” Prendre la Ugg, qui dmarrent en peau de mouton fourrure qui a domin l’hiver dernier.

Naturalizer Dress Shoes.txt

Naturalizer Dress Shoes

Naturalizer dress shoes are among the most stylish shoes one can wear while still feeling comfortable. The lines of these shoes may be sharp, but your foot won’t feel abused when situated in them. Naturalizer dress shoes manage to combine the fashion trends of today with comfort that seems to come from a bygone era.

Why do people wear uncomfortable shoes? Well, it’s a matter of fashion. On of the hottest designs of late has been the heel with a pointy toe. These shoes certainly grab one’s attention, but they can be very bad for the feet. The foot is squished down into the toe by the heel, yet the toe of the shoe is so narrow that actual (human) toes have nowhere to go. The toes are compressed in an uncomfortable way. Shoes like these can lead to many foot problems down the road.

Naturalizer dress shoes do include versions of the pointytoed dress shoe. But these shoes are made to be much more comfortable due to the fact that the heels are lowered significantly. This design element allows the foot to sit in the shoe without gravity exerting too much pressure on the toes.

With just a little ingenuity, one really can have the best of both worlds when it comes to designer shoes. Naturalizer shoes combine trendy styling with sensible soles. Few shoes are quite so versatile.

Why Are the UGG Boots Classic Medium Tall So.txt

Why Are the UGG Boots Classic Medium Tall So

A very important thing to consider when we are talking about the wonderfulness of these Classic Medium Tall boots is the soft feel of comfort that they provide.

If poor quality wool is used, the feel is quite cheap and prickly, but UGG boots Classic Medium are certainly a class apart.

The naturally soft feeling of these boots comes from the material used in making them, which is the most genuine quality sheepskin from Australia. without socks.

There is much talk about the high quality and authenticity of the sheepskin that’s used in making these products.

The wool is sheared from sheep that are bred just for making these products.

The excellent climate of the Australian continent and the lush food that these sheep are made to eat ensure that their wool is of a superlative kind.

The two most important things that contribute in making these boots popular is the very comfortable feeling that they provide and the fact that they can keep feet warm very efficiently.

We mustn’t forget the style element when we are talking about how famous the UGG boots have become.

These are hot where fashion is concerned and it is almost a style statement to wear them.

Though the boots are made for indoor use primarily, many people from the western countries are wearing them wherever they can because of the feelgood style factor that they carry with them.

One indication of the popularity of the UGG boots Classic Medium Tall is seen in how various other companies have tried to cash in on their craze and come up with various imitations of the products.

They are even duplicating the UGG boots name so that they can dupe people better.

This has become a sort of an issue with the UGG Boots Classic Medium company, who has actually put disclaimers on their company website that they aren’t collaborated with products of any different name.

What’s Next For The Market NIKE.txt

What’s Next For The Market NIKE

Market Recap: Wait a second, we though QE3 was supposed to be a catalyst. In fact, the market has actually dropped on both announcements of QE1 and QE2, so the market may not be off track as much as one might think. The market dropped hard today giving back a lot of recent gains on the back of lack of buying on QE3, weak earnings continuation from HP (HPQ), and a miss on initial jobless claims. All in all, though, the movement was a bit extreme for a slight miss on jobless claims and earnings that were never expected to be good from HPQ. That leaves us with QE3. Why would the market drop so much on the bond buying announcement? Well, it looks like it was a classic sell the news. QE3 is coming because we are not in good shape, and the market seemed to realize that today. More downside may be in the cards, but at the same time, QE3 and Europe bond action will be a benefit to markets eventually so a general floor to the market should exist.

Going into tomorrow, we should probably see some more downside follow through as we have a fairly light day of news, data and earnings. The market has now done two down days in a row, which does set up a pattern of bearishness, and that cannot be ignored now.

For an earnings trade, we are liking Equinix (EQIX). We have a Buy rating on the company with a price target of $228. The company has been holding up tremendously despite the market trending lower from here, and we believe that the company has upside into earnings. They are growing very strongly right now, and the company is looking like the old days of Salesforce (CRM) and F5 (FFIV). The only difference is we believe the company has a better balance sheet, better management, and more attention paid to what pays . profits. Their last report was very solid, and we expect more of the same for them going into their next report. We like the 175/170 bull put spread for an earnings play in EQIX moving forward.

For longs, we like Tibco Software (TIBX) and Williams Sonoma (WSM). TIBX broke over key resistance at 29 today, and the stock looks ready to make more moves higher. The company was green on a strong down day, and they lacked any major news to do that. The company is showing a lot of great relative strength, trending higher, and has been on a roll since their last earnings were very strong. We think they have great value with a future PE at 21 despite over 40% EPS growth this year and around 20% next year. The stock has resumed a strong uptrend and looks ready to move to 30 easily. We also think WSM is a good place to park some cash during this market pullback. The company had fantastic earnings in the last report, gapped up, and held the $42 line the day after earnings despite a weak market. Right now, you can park some cash in the 39/38 bull put spread for around 12% gain possibility for less than a month of holding. Goldman Sachs reiterated Buy, and they seem to have a nice floor now.

For shorts, we like the looks of Nike (NKE) and Deckers (DECK). Shoe companies were one of the bright spots in the last round of earnings, but these companies were not part of that. NKE had the worst report of the industry, and despite DECK’s pop on earnings, the report did not really show anything to be excited about they lost less money than the market thought. The truth is that the glory days of DECK are over. Uggs made their splash and now will be something that continues to make some revenue but is not a sustainable business like shoe retailers NKE or WWW. We like a bear call spread for DECK as the stock broke today. The $52.50 line looks like resistance. If the market turns, DECK will go with it as they do not have the strong business line to hold on here. NKE is also looking quite weak. We like NKE for the long haul, but the stock is testing its 10day, 20day and 50day MA at 95. The stock held above that line today, but a break below $95 would be detrimental to the stock. Earnings were not good, and if the market rolls over, they may see some shorts come into play as well as traders sell it.

(click to enlarge)(click to enlarge)(click to enlarge)(click to enlarge)(click to enlarge)The market will obviously be reacting to more of the QE debate, and with a lack of data, we should see a follow through in the market to the downside. There is no major data out tomorrow. Durable orders will be released, but it’s not a major report. Overseas, we get a new conference from the Spanish Cabinet that could provide some movement for European markets as well as British GDP. Additionally, Merkel will be meeting with Greek Prime Minister Samaras tomorrow, so we do get some more attention drawn to Europe. There is definitely the formula there for more downside tomorrow, but at the same time, QE puts a floor on the market. We bought back Francesca (FRAN) puts for a 22% gain from $25 puts we sold at the beginning of the month. We also bought back half the bear call spread on Safeway (SWY) we talked about on here for a 21% gain today. We also took half off of a Tibco long, Dow Chemical (DOW) short for a solid 1.5% gain. We made a slight gain closing long Carnival (CCL), short Omnicare (OCR). We did, however, take a loss on EXCO (XCO) long, short Tempur Pedic (TPX) of 2.8% and closed Whole Foods (WFM) at entry to average out for a slight gain. We added the pair in TIBX, DOW today as well as bull put spread in WSM to Goldman Portfolio.

We have the following positions:

In our ShortTerm Equity Portfolio we are long Tibco Software, Amgen (AMGN) Pepsico (PEP). We are short Dow Chemical. We are short Safeway and Coach (COH).

In our Earnings Alpha Portfolio, we are long Lennar (LEN), Ulta (ULTA), Francesca’s. We are short RedHat (RHT). We have a reverse iron condor in Abercrombie Fitch (ANF).

In our Goldman Sachs Up/Down Paper Portfolio, we are long CocaCola (KO) and Williams Sonoma.

How To Use Gravity Boots.txt

How To Use Gravity Boots

The term “gravity boots” brings to mind futuristic images straight out of cartoons like the Jetsons. However, inversion gravity boots are actually a viable medical/exercise device that is used in inversion therapy to aid in curing a variety of medical issues. It is a great alternative to drugs that can cause intense side effects and surgery. A study released by Newcastle University in England actually found that people that were regular participants in an inversion therapy program, reduced their need for back surgery by 70 percent. For those who aren’t familiar with the term inversion therapy it is basically hanging upside down in an inverted position and has been used in some form or another for several centuries. It’s most recent incarnation came into existence about 20 years ago.

Inversion therapy can aid a person in ways other than back pain though. It has been shown to decrease stress, increase circulation, improve posture, and help people to think more clearly. It is used by athletes as well the more infirm.

Gravity boots are the inversion device that allows a person to hang the most freely. An inversion table offers different angels, and an inversion chair offers more support and fewer benefits. Basically gravity boots are worn like boot. They come with ankle supports, and sometimes a rack that allow the person to hang upside down. They not only help with back pain but can help with fitness in other ways. For example, from this position it is great to do inverted sit ups and squats.

It is advisable when using gravity boots to wear extra thick and comfy socks so as not to rub your ankles and your feet as your ankles will be essentially supporting all of your body weight. Also, make sure that you secure the rod you intend to hang from very securely. You want it to be a few inches more from the floor than your height, but make sure it’s not too high.

Gravity boots have become increasingly popular due to exposure in the popular media. The U. S. In The Da Vinci Code the protagonist hangs upside down from gravity boots in order to think difficult problems out. This is actually just another benefit of inversion therapy. The inverted position increases oxygen and blood flow to the brain which can help a person to think more clearly and more sharply.

Price is an issue when looking into products for inversion therapy. Gravity boots can be found for as little as $80 while inversion tables run around $150. Gravity boots can be viewed more as an aid in exercising as well rather than to use merely for inverting oneself. However, remember one of the benefits of gravity boots is that they are useful in both ways.
