650k worth of fake goods seized at Knoxville malls Knoxville News Sentinel As a result of the investigation, at least 10 shops in the malls will presumably be a little short of inventory when Black Friday rolls around.The names of the businesses have yet to be made public, but police say they seized fake handbags, jewelry, sunglasses, and designer cell phone cases when they executed search warrants at the ten mall retail outlets last Thursday."Counterfeit air max 1 sale copies of purses made by Coach, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Dooney Bourke, Prada, and Gucci were recovered in several businesses," according to Knoxville Police Department spokesman Darrell DeBusk."Imitations of Prada, Christian Dior, and Chanel sunglasses were also seized," DeBusk said. "Fake jewelry items confiscated included knock offs of Tiffany Co. ear rings, necklaces, and bracelets. Multiple fake Rolex watches were also discovered during the operation."The value of the fake goodies was reckoned at $655,427, he said.The targeted retailers included two stores and eight kiosks, he said."It is a lot, but not uncommon with what you see across the country," he said.KPD Chief Sterling P. Owen IV said the operation was launched to protect unwary consumers."This operation was extremely successful," he said. "The confiscation of these counterfeit air max kids items will help prevent the public from being victimized while they conduct their Christmas shopping."The investigation was headed by KPD s Organized Crime Unit, DeBusk said. He declined to go into specifics about the investigation.When asked if the pending holiday season prompted the seizures, DeBusk replied: "It did not drive the investigation, but obviously we were concerned with that much merchandise being out and the citizens that could be taken advantage of when they start their Christmas shopping."The District Attorney General s Office is reviewing the case along with investigators to determine who might face criminal charges, he said. Any charges will likely be filed through a Knox nike free run 4.0 County grand jury.Police say they are planning more counterfeit merchandise operations "for the near future."More details as they develop online and in Thursday s News Sentinel.I ve never understood the knock off trade anyway. I know there are lots of legitimate brands that use similar logos and designs of higher up brands like Coach or Dooney and Burke using the general design, color pattern or logo placement of the higher up Gucci, Louis Vuitton, or Chanel and then Liz Claiborne or Tommy Hilfiger making a cheaper version of the Coach etc. so that all buyers get a great looking legitimate handbag to fit their budget. I mean you won t fool anyone who does buy the real stuff and even I can tell from across the nike free 1.0 room or Walmart parking lot that odds are you aren t complimenting your otherwise discount store attire with a $1000 or better handbag. The only thing I can say in defense of the local mall kiosk vendors is that I ve never had one stop me and try to pass something off as the real thing here and I don t think anyone believes they are buying the real thing anyway but just in case they always have signs saying they are imitation, faux, "inspired by" or some other small disclaimer that I m sure they don t freely point out. Anyway, I would be glad to see them go from any and all shops selling a fake of any brand no matter the price level.And about those fake purses when I was in West Town the other night, I saw several of those purses selling for about $39.99 and I knew immediately that they were fake, but I was surprised at how much the knock offs have come down in price.A few years ago, I attended a purse party held at someone s home, and the Louis Vuitton and Burberry bags were selling for at least $100 each, which is pretty steep for any purse in my opinion, but if the real deal equivelent is $800 and you care about brands that much, I guess a knock off Vuitton is okay. However, I noticed that the stitch work on the knock off bags was sloppy, the zippers were cheap and there was an obvious flaw in the leather and construction of the purses (they were made with real leather though.)I guess the mall stores were cutting into the purse party business, perhaps. I seriously doubt however that consumer protection was the real motivation behind this sting operation/crackdown. Since when are consumers ever the major concern in any business operation? Profit is the main concern and businesses can pretty much wrap a turd up in pretty paper and market it and sell it and there s always someone willing to try it out and pay for it. "Buyer beware" is the law of the land.And, as someone already mentioned, consumers know they re not buying real Louis Vuitton (well, the majority do and you ll always have one or two dumbarses in the bunch).And about those fake purses when I was in West Town the other night, I saw several of those purses selling for about $39.99 and I knew immediately that they were fake, but I was surprised at how much the knock offs have come down in price.A few years ago, I attended a purse party air max premium held at someone s home, and the Louis Vuitton and Burberry bags were selling for at least $100 each, which is pretty steep for any purse in my opinion, but if the real deal equivelent is $800 and you care about brands that much, I guess a knock off Vuitton is okay.

7 beauty products to throw out in 2013 You ve recovered from the holidays, and you ve made your resolutions. And if you nike air max womens re holding on to cracked compacts, crusty mascaras, stale lip balms, and expired sunscreens, it s time to make another vow for 2013: Revamp your beauty product stash stat. Don t worry, it s actually going to be a lot more fun than you think. Not to mention that spring and all of the exciting beauty trends that air max 1 black come with it is right around the corner, so you ll need to make room for more loot. I get it, you love your Chanel lipstick, but if you lost the top months ago, the tube needs to go, too especially if it has been floating around in your bag collecting nike free flyknit debris. Cosmetic chemists and dermatologists will tell you it s loaded with bacteria, but it s also just gross. Lipstick should never look like it s been rolled in rubbish. One of the most ubiquitous Fashion Week beauty trends for spring was pretty, nike free run 4.0 womens perfect skin but not fake perfect. So forget about using a full coverage, studio makeup foundation to get the look. Instead, try something more natural, like a tinted moisturizer or BB cream, and finish if off with a quick dust of loose powder such as Laura Mercier Mineral Powder, $36. If you have hair clip in pieces rolling around in the bottom of your bathroom drawer, knotted and greasy, it s time to throw them out. And unless you re a Victoria s Secret model, you probably won t need them anyway: Hair trends for 2013 reflect shorter and more manageable styles. "I m so excited that super long hair nike air max 90 womens is finally going away," says celebrity stylist Janine Jarmon. "Modern cuts are short to mid length, and texture is more natural." How to lose baby weight like a celebrity are one of my favorite new beauty inventions I ll take Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips, $8.99, over a bottle of actual polish any day. But there s one major problem: They dry out. If you ve ever tried to apply old or unwrapped strips, then you know they just won t stick. Take a moment to clean out your supply and make a mental note to only buy them only as you need them. When it comes to my beauty regimen, one of the things that annoys me the most is struggling to tweeze a stray eyebrow hair with dull tweezers. After three failed attempts I m about ready to throw the tweezers across the room in a fit of rage and I m not over exaggerating. That s why I highly suggest investing in Tweezerman Tweezers $22. They sharpen your tweezers for free. Manicurists have tricks they use when it comes to clumpy nail polish (paint thinner) or runny lotion (adding Vaseline), but doctors agree that if something s questionable, you re better off ditching it. Besides, if the sun block you think is from last summer is actually from three summers before, you re in for a wicked sunburn.

7 Best Dividend Stocks to DRIP General Electric Company Dividend Reinvestment Plans (DRIPs) offer shareholders a way to buy stock directly from the company or through a transfer agent, usually through a monthly plan. They get their name from the fact that they also reinvest dividends paid, purchasing more stock. One of the advantages of DRIPs is that an investor does not need a large amount of money to start many plans allow investors who own just one share to enroll in a DRIP. Many also allow dividends to be reinvested with no fees, and most will let investors to purchase additional shares through a DRIP for nominal fees. Some plans allow investors to purchase stock at discounts of up to 10% from the current market price. Investors in DRIPs have a long term investment horizon, and invest money regularly, most commonly on a monthly basis. This means that investments also benefit from dollar cost averaging. Many companies run their own DRIP schemes, allowing investors to buy directly without the requirements to own shares. The administration o fthese schemes can be costly, however, so it is common for DRIPs to be run by third party transfer agents, whose costs are lower because they often provide the same resources for several customers. Finally, some brokers will allow shareholders to reinvest dividends at no cost. However, these plans apply to dividends only and don allow optional cash purchases as most company sponsored DRIPs do, which is one of the mot attractive advantages of DRIPs. DRIPs are a great way to begin red air max 90 investing, and then continue to do so on a regular basis. They avoid brokerage commissions, and take advantaage of dividend reinvestment. An investor has natural dollar cost averaging nd will be investing in companies that he does not foresee selling in the near future. We looked at the seven best stocks to DRIP. General Electric Company (GE): A diversified industrial company, General Electric manufactures a range of products, from aircraft to railway engines, and services from water processing to business financing. Indications are that GE will evaluate its dividends quarterly, and its current dividend yield is 3.10%. nike free 3.0 v2 With EPS expected to rise from last year $1.2 to $1.36 this year and then $1.66 the year after, it looks likely that the company will continue with its generous dividend policy. There is no fee for dividend reinvestments, though the company does charge a $3 fee for cash investments in its scheme. Wells Fargo Company (WFC): The fifth largest bank holding company in the United States, with a total of 11,000 offices in 50 states, Central America, and the Caribbean. Though dividends were reduced in 2009 as a result of the financial crisis, the company has paid a dividend since 1939. Its 2011 dividend of $0.48 is covered five times by its EPS per share of $2.43. With analysts estimating these EPS to increase over the next nike free run red two years to $3.47, a consistent dividend policy will see the dividend rise accordingly. Investments into the scheme are charged at $3 plus 3 cents per share, and an investor only needs one share to qualify. Dividend reinvestments are subject to a 4% fee. EI DuPont de Nemours (DD) makes high performance materials, electronics, biotechnology, and safety and security products. Half of its sales come from overseas, and its 3% dividend yield is covered 2.18 times by its current EPS of $3.58. Estimates for net income would see its EPS rising to $4.40 over the next two years, and analysts expect the share price to react positively as the company comes out well from the economic downturn. Its DRIP scheme requires only one share to qualify, and fees for dividend reinvestment are capped at $3 as investing fees. Its current dividend of $1.64 is covered 4.46 times by its EPS of $7.32. Though these EPS are expected to slide this year to $4.09, they are expected to recover the following year to $5.96 as problems overhanging from the financial crisis are worked through. It has plenty of scope to maintain, or even increase its dividend. Its scheme only requires one share to qualify, and fees for dividend reinvestment and further investing are limited to $3 plus 5 cents per share. Coca Cola Company (KO) was founded in 1886 and is one of the top brand names in the world today. The company owns or licenses over 500 branded products across more than 200 countries. Its last year dividend of $1.88 was covered 2.76 times, and puts the shares, at $69.82 at the time of writing, on a dividend yield of 2.70%. With such a solid brand name, and a good track record of increasing dividends the company is a good DRIP target for investors. Its scheme requires only one share to qualify, and allows investments from $50 to a maximum of $250,000 annually. Fees for dividend reinvestment are 5%, though capped at $2 + 3 cents per share. Fees for other investments are $3 + 3 cents per share. The Boeing Company (BA) is one of the world leading commercial aircraft manufacturers, and a major producer of American and foreign military aircraft. Historically, dividends average about 30% of annual earnings, and its last year dividend of $1.68 was covered 2.7 times by its EPS of $4.53. The current dividend yield is 2.3%. With EPS set to rise to $5.30, the company has plenty of room to maintain its dividend or increase it over time. Although the minimum investment is $50, its investing fees are just $1 plus commission. An investor needs to hold only one share nike free 5.0 pink to qualify for its scheme. Caterpillar (CAT): The world leading manufacturer of mining and construction equipment, Caterpillar operates through three business lines: Machinery, Engines, and Financial Products. The Engines business provides diesel, heavy fuel, and natural gas engines for Caterpillar machinery, which includes tractors, underground mining equipment and boring equipment, articulated trucks, and off road trucks. Its Financial Products division provides retail and wholesale solutions for Caterpillar machinery and engines. It has increased dividends each year since 2006, and its last year dividend of $1.84 is nike free online covered 3.06 times by an EPS of $5.63. Revenues are expected to increase by 18% between fiscal 2011 and fiscal 2012, with EPS increasing from last year level to $9.13. If dividends rise in line with this EPS growth, and coverage is maintained at 3 times, then Caterpillar holders could see dividends rising to over $3. Shareholders need only one share to qualify for the company scheme, and fees for dividend reinvestments are zero. Fees for extra investments are $2.50 + 3 cents per share.

7 Genre Character Thoughts on Illegal Immigration Comments I have a great idea that will make all of us happy. The government should pass an act where it will no longer support illegal immigrants with free food, healthcare etc. Instead all those who sympathize with the illegal immigrant plight will sign a form that gives a certain percentage of their income to the illegals. The percentage will vary depending on the amount of volunteer supporters. Also, the form will detail how, if it becomes necessary, the supporters will surrender their jobs to these illegals. The rest of the taxpayers will no longer have to carry the dead weight or worry about an illegal taking their jobs away b y undercutting. This way you people who support these illegas can PAY for them since you think they have a right to be here. Wait. what? You don t want to pay for them? You cant afford it? You want to keep your hard earned money, your jobs, your homes, feed your families etc? Ya, that s what I thought. You re all great supporters until it hits you in the pocketbook. The word here is hypocrite. Illegal Immigration is one of those wonderful hot topics like Gay Marriage (which nike free run black is bullshit Marriage is a religious term and the government should stop talking about "Marriage" and promote Civil Unions between a Man and Woman, or Man and Man, or Woman and Woman leave religion out of it) or. Oh yes! Religion (in which the majorty of people do not understand that all the religions in the world at their core, absolute core, is about "fairness" unfortunately, extremists and bible thumping idiots [to name a scant few] bend the truth to fill there pockets or promote their own personal agenda and that mucks it all up). Anyway the point being is that it is very sad that we still live in a world that greedily holds onto, "it s own land", these are my people intruder s are aliens and so forth. Instead of deporting them (unless criminal cases are involved), when identified now you have them so, document them, give them a damn tax ID number and who give a rat s ass if they are a naturalized citizen nike air max infrared or not. It s a human being in need of a better life. Once documented and given a tax ID number, you now have them, on a tax basis and forced to have to deal with potential legal issues (should they not report taxes and such), which can be much more painful then being deported. air max red There is no simple solution but continually deporting and screaming for more border patrols is just utterly futile, like the great, "War on Drugs." It s a situation that is being handled wrongly and has been for decades. Whew, just to summarize I do agree that an "Illegal Immigration Law" mens nike free run should exist but not to deport, but to document and set up tax ID s for the individual. Let them live here and pay taxes like everyone else. Who cares if they become a citizen or not. We are one planet and one race only divided by dumb ass governments and backwards social relations that promote the dillusion of self importance nike free white over the plight of others.

7 Gucci Hysteria Clutch If you have ever paid any attention to the Gucci Spring Summer 2008 fashion collection, you may have noticed that the Hysteria series was an essential of part of it, which reflected its noble fashion character fully. There may be many criteria to define fashion, and I believe that originality is the most important factor. Then, how could one love the Gucci Hysteria Clutch 09 again and can it fashion? I just can not figure out. As far as I know, Gucci released a similar clutch last season under the same name. Believe it or not, the product descriptions are resemble to each other: black air max 1 "Hysteria" clutch with zip top closure, metal Gucci crest detail, side ties, inside pocket, sized at 15.5"L x 2.4"W x 8.7"H, black leather with gold hardware. Of course, there are differences: nike free 5.0 mens the product ID number is not the same, and the price is $145 higher. You may wonder what the reason behind the increase in price. The secret lies in the off white and bronze leather embroidery on the so called new bag. nike free run 3 5.0 Sorry, Gucci, I can not see the art in the embroidery. Is it flowers like that of the dandelion or the peacock feather? I just can not appreciate its beauty. Actually, there is an old proverb in Chinese: even the dog won t eat the leftover. The saying is to satirize nike air max 90 these who lack innovation and tend to repeat the past. Is not it exactly what Gucci does? Frankly speaking, I am not a cynic. If there is anything I like on the bag, it should be the metal Gucci crest detail. The shield shape crest stud adds glamour and mystery to the clutch. The debut of the crest design was in the early 1950, depicting a armored knight, carrying two luggage, is saluting to legendary baby air max achievement of the Gucci family, the royal saddler during the Renaissance. As the previous logo of Gucci, it could be found in the bag or on the package. Today, the crest is added to the modern design assuming metal decoration identity, which not only brings strong visual effect, but also implies the long history and bright future of Gucci. Glorious as the crest may be, the release of the Hysteria clutch in 2009 probably won t be very popular. In the downturn economy, GUCCI should be more sensitive and wise to its price. Hopefully they can get their cost back.
