So, been seeing a lot of SVG support being introduced into UWP to get vector images. I love this evolution, but somehow I still love how fonts work and mostly I still go that route if I need some icon representation inside an UWP app.

Fonts also easily scale, by setting the font size, what often results in better outlining with text being set on the same size! Adding color is also no problem and depending on what library you are using there is often also a full filled version as an outlined version available for a given icon.

So let me show you this alternative way on how you can use a great open source icon library to good use inside your UWP apps, through their available font.

First up go to this great icon library called Material Design Icons,
timberland earthkeeper shoes February 2017
here select the Download button and in the popup window select the Download the webfont button.

To use it in your app, place the TTF inside your Assets folder.

Now that you have the font as an asset, you still need to enable its usage in xaml. To do this, we first add a reference to the font in a ResourceDictionary.

Add following entry in your resource dictionary :

Now that the style is available for any TextBlock you want to use, we can add those in our UI.

For example if you want to add an expand symbol to an image to indicate the user can enlarge it, we just select a good icon from the font and place a TextBlock inside a button on the image.

Now the most difficult part is actually getting hold of the actual text representing a given icon.

To get this, you need to install the TTF in windows ( right click on the font and select install ) and use the Windows Character Map tool to copy the value.

Select a given icon and press copy to get hold of the actual value

Only thing left to do is define an button and add a TextBlock to it with the font value.

Note : in the code preview below this will not be shown because the font value can not be rendered. But inside visual studio you will see a ? representation.

By the time a West Hartford shoe store ended the drive Wednesday, people had brought in an estimated 7,000 pairs of shoes from flip flops to sneakers to work boots, most used but some brand new. The shoes are piled about 5 feet high in the basement of Fleet Feet Sports on Farmington Avenue. No matter what the calendar or the thermometer say, the first day of school thrusts most people from the sunlit somnolence of summer to the no nonsense business of fall. That’s not as bad as it sounds. Golden days of leisure replenish the body and spirit. But the urge to get back to the grindstone is as compelling as was the siren call of vacation last June. But when a special donation of shoes strolled in, Beverly Malone almost met her match. When Marlow’s Department Store in downtown Manchester closed recently, co owner Lillian Marlow made Malone an offer. Marlow was willing to give the store’s leftover shoes to the Penny Saver, which is a service of the Auxiliary of Manchester Memorial Hospital. There was, of course, a catch.

WASHINGTON Leading water experts warned yesterday of shortages and a potential crisis if the United States proceeds without a national water policy that spells out cooperation between governments and regions. In letters to the White House, governors and every member of Congress, the experts argued that the country urgently needs to develop a “national water vision” to cope with shortages and other looming problems. That came just as AAA announced that North Dakota is one of the two cheapest places in the country to take a vacation. There’s something about this that just fires the imagination.

timberland earthkeeper boots Fears mount over killer superbugs

ROME, Nov 14 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) Imagine a world where a small cut on your finger or a routine hip replacement surgery could prove fatal. This is the future humanity is facing unless the use and abuse of antibiotics is curbed in both humans and animals, experts have warned. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). “Without global action, lives and livelihoods could be under threat.”

Antimicrobials are drugs, including antibiotics, that destroy dangerous pathogens and are essential for human and animal health and the production of food.

FACTBOX Why are health experts so concerned about drug resistance?

But infections resistant to drugs due to their overuse could kill as many as 10 million people a year by 2050 posing the greatest threat to human health, says the World Health Organisation.

The use of antibiotics on farms in populous nations such as China and India is expected to soar, and the more antibiotics are given to animals the more likely drug resistant bugs will affect people’s health.

The good news, experts say, is that simple steps can mitigate the spread of antimicrobial resistance from animals to humans.

“It’s very costly to get new medicine on the market so we have to preserve the ones that we have, or we can do better on animal husbandry practices and the environment,” said Juan Lubroth, FAO’s chief veterinary officer.

This means better nutrition, better sanitation and better procedures to protect farms from pests and diseases washing hands and changing shoes before entering a farm, buying and selling healthy animals and vaccinating them regularly.

These measures could fend off diseases and reduce the need to use antibiotics, Lubroth told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

Raising awareness on the proper use of drugs and the dangers of misusing them is also vital, said Tim Petersen, head of animal welfare at the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration.

“Only sick animals should be given antibiotics,” he said.

In 2010, when Denmark set limits on how much antimicrobials pig farmers can use, awareness of drug resistance was very low, Petersen said. Since then, their use has fallen by a quarter with no negative impact on productivity, he said.

The animal health industry is developing solutions such as vaccinations and animal only antibiotics with the private sector in the vanguard of innovations, said Carel du Marchie Sarvaas, head of the Brussels based industry group HealthforAnimals.

“No government is going to come up with new antibiotics or vaccines, and no government is going to have the scale and scope,” du Marchie Sarvaas said.

This month, the World Health Organization urged farmers to stop using antibiotics to promote growth and prevent disease in healthy animals because the practice fuels dangerous drug resistant superbug infections in people.

But du Marchie Sarvaas said there was not enough data to pinpoint how and where the agricultural sector is contributing to antimicrobial resistance in humans.

“There’s no link actually shown yet in terms of how (cutting antibiotic use in farming) is reducing antimicrobial resistance in humans,” he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

“Use in the agricultural sector is likely contributing to that but there’s actually little data of how that happens.”

Europe, especially Nordic countries, have been leading the way in the agricultural sector on action and gathering data.

Years before the Danish government set antimicrobial thresholds for farmers, it stopped veterinarians from making money from the sale of medicine. It has since set up a database to keep track of antimicrobial use in both animals and humans.

Norway, where the use of antibiotics is strictly controlled, has swapped antibiotics for vaccines in salmon farming.

The Netherlands, the world’s second largest food exporter, has cut antimicrobial use in poultry and livestock sectors by 64 percent by making antibiotics use on farms transparent and cutting the use of medically important antibiotics in animals.

A recent paper from the University of Bristol in Britain, which has multiple projects on antimicrobial resistance, analysed data from commercial dairy farms in southwest England.

Stopping the use of medically important antibiotics and reducing antibiotics overall use did not negatively affect cattle health or milk production, it said.

But the European experience is far cry from emerging market nations facing pressure to feed their growing populations and where changing diets have led to demand for more meat.

As growing and wealthier populations consume more meat, antibiotic use in agriculture is expected to increase by 67 percent between 2010 and 2030, according to the World Bank. In Brazil, China, India, Russia and South Africa, antibiotic use could double in the same period.

The World Bank is exploring if financial incentives may help smaller, domestic focused food producers in the developing world, said Enis Bar, the World Bank’s lead on antimicrobial resistance.

The infrastructure and contacts for people smuggling are clearly there.”

It is not known if police have looked at links to Mauritania, where slavery was only outlawed in 2007 the year Madeleine, three, vanished in the Algarve.

But private detectives hired by the McCanns believe there are “strong reasons” to think she was taken to Morocco, a route into the country.

Their claims were based on sightings and the proximity of Praia da Luz, where she went missing on May 3, 2007, to the town of Lagos,
timberland lace up boots Fears Madeleine McCann was 'trafficked into Africa by slave traders' as it emerges 'identical' girl spotted in Morocco petrol station asking to see her mum
where boats depart for Africa.

It is also just a four hour drive to the Spanish port of Tarifa, where ferries cross to the Moroccan port of Tangier.

Kidnappers could have Madeleine from Praia da Luz into north Africa in just five hours using the ferry.

Portuguese police failed to seal the border with Spain an hour from the resort in the hours after she vanished.

Checks on the Tarifa Tangier ferry were virtually non existent on a recent journey. No searches were carried out on vehicles boarding the boat.

An abductor could easily have hidden Madeleine in the back seat or boot of a car.

In Tangier, they could have taken her to a safe house or moved her to another African country.

Interpol detectives in Gibraltar received a tip off in August 2007 that a man was seen carrying a child resembling in Tangier.

The informant said the girl seemed “unhappy, ill tempered and did not speak” as the man tried to buy shoes for her.

A traveller told Crimestoppers they saw a girl resembling on the Tarifa Tangier ferry in a Portuguese registered car four days after she went missing.

Top detective says it’s ‘extremely unlikely’ Madeleine McCann is still alive but we mustn’t give up hope

Two days later, a girl “identical” to Madeleine was seen with a man at a petrol station on a main road from the port in Marrakech.

One tourist, who lives on the Costa del Sol with her British husband, said the youngster she saw, who was wearing blue pyjamas,

Fears are mounting for the Northern Ireland peace process as fresh revelations emerged about the DUP following their deal with the Tories.

The warning came as the Mirror reveals the close links between members of the hardline unionist party and paramilitary organisations.

This includes connections with a group that organised an illegal shipment of arms into Northern Ireland.

The revelation raise further questions about Theresa May ‘s decision to form pact with the DUP.

Mrs May will hold talks with DUP leader Arlene Foster today to agree a confidence and supply arrangement in which the party’s 10 MPs back the Tories on key votes.

But the Prime Minister has been hit by a backlash for wanting to share power with a party with MPs who oppose gay rights,

deny climate change and have links with violent paramilitary groups.

One current DUP MP Sammy Wilson chaired the first meeting of loyalist paramilitary organisation Ulster Resistance in November 1986.

6 nasty Tory policies Theresa May could be forced to ditch from the Queen’s Speech

Fomer DUP leaders Rev Ian Paisley and Peter Robinson were at the same meeting and were pictured wearing the organisation’s red berets.

Ulster Resistance was set up by the DUP to “take direct action as and when required” to end the Anglo Irish Agreement, signed the previous year between the British and Irish governments.

Intelligence reports revealed last year showed that members of Ulster Resistance were plotting with other loyalist paramilitaries to import weapons from December 1986 onwards.

The Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland said in a report last year that two of the Ulster Resistance fighters at the launch hosted by the DUP went on to play key roles in importing “a large consignment of firearms consisting of vz58 assault rifles, Browning type 9mm semi automatic pistols, tens of thousands of rounds of ammunition, hand grenades and RPG rocket launchers to the UK from Beirut in late 1987/early 1988”.

“The importation of arms in late 1987 appears to have been a joint project between the UDA, the Ulster Volunteer Force and Ulster Resistance. Members of Ulster Resistance played perhaps the most critical part in the operation.”

The centrepiece of Liano’s new collection is the skin tight, high waisted, artfully torn O Legg Shredded jean as worn above by model of the moment Jess Hart. Very sexy! At least on her. But Pour Some Sugar On Me! Is that an acid wash effect I see? Take a deep breath and look back to the future with Bettina Liano’s new campaign. Thankfully, the 80s take on denim is a whole lot better in its revised version, but then again, I’ve always had a soft spot for white jeans. If you can’t stomach a re run of 80s style distressed denim, play the promo just for the music a day brightening bit of kick arse soul by Melbourne sensation Paris Wells and take comfort in the knowledge that the 80s Mark II comes with a vastly improved soundtrack.

With distressed jeans comes glam metal hair. Despite some admirable rearguard action from Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes, the battle is lost. Jennifer Aniston can iron her hair all day long but no one’s looking. She’s yesterday’s girl. With Vivienne Westwood and Gareth Pugh presaging the return of the perm at Singapore Fashion Week this month, the catwalk is pumping up the volume and soon enough so will we. Note to bargain hunters, starting casing Priceline for discounted hairspray now, these prices won’t last.

And while there’s no getting away from the despicable slouch boot, there’s worse to come in footwear, with bubblegum brights and every shade of red slated to make a huge comeback on a shoe shelf near you. Along with . yup, you guessed it . jellies. Admittedly, I have yet to see anyone pair them with a cocktail frock but with specialist jelly shoe retailers cropping up all over the net, it can’t be long before they’ll be seen on fashionable feet everywhere. Get ahead of the curve at mellissaaustralia”>mellissaaustralia.

What I remember the strongest about the 80s is that almost every single item in

my wardrobe was black and that I wore black leggings and black winkelpeckers shoes with studs on them and that occasionally wore a bright colour but only if it was matched with black!

And my favourite item was a black tulle ballet dancer style short skirt which was the hippest, coolest thing to wear out to a night club. And the music was The Cure and The Smiths and New Order!

But my hair was full of gel and hairspray and teased to the max and I have to say 80s hair was really ugly.

It was cool to sport some ugly items, including ugly hair.

Now I look back and wonder why back then I didn’t appreciate or play up my pretty face more. pretty just wasn’t cool. Shock value was cool.

Sad!!! I was a true fashion victim

As someone who was a teen over 78 85 I think fashion could do worse than looking back at the 80’s fashions.

Who remembers high waisted/legged bikinis and one pieces? My then girlfriend, now wife used to wear high cut leg swimmers and they look so much sexier than the hipster/lower styles of today.

With any clothing, it’s much better to cover, allure and keep the interest through mystery than to have it all hang out as it so often does today.

Girls ask your mums how much sexier it felt to tease the boys rather than just show it off at first glance.

I LOVE the 80s crazy time for entertainment and fashion. Nothing much new has been made since the 80s, think of how many classic songs and movies you hear are being ripped off by the likes of Rihanna and ‘stars’ from teen TV shows.

I love 80s fashion skinny jeans, pointy shoes, big hair, theatrically contoured makeup, leather, acid wash or printed denim, black, bolds, boots, gloves and quirky jewellery. The sort of clothes you can make a character out of and have some fun.

However I do avoid high waists and shoulder pads these are about as flattering as the pregnancy look clothes girls wear around these days.

I was a teen and twenty something in during the decade that was the 80’s. I wasn’t really a slave to fashion, but there were some things that I really liked and was sorry that they fell by the wayside particularly the jewel tone colors ( the love of drab browns and other earht tones when the retro 70’s look came in were deadly), luxurious fabrics (lots of silks and velvets loved ’em) and the footwear. Really gorgeous. fun shoes that eclipse the ugly clunkers that took over during the retro 70’s fad. As a lady of “bold” eyebrows, I liked that that look was fashionable and celebrated unlike the overly plucked look that came later.

That said, I do not miss shoulder pads in everything coats, blouses,
timberlands boots for men Fear and Clothing
ever t shirts for crissakes, tapered trousers and jeans (you know the ones with the pleats on the pockets and the skinny ankle they made everyone look like that had a big rear end), “status” prints, mullets and designer stubble on men.

Bella not really. Leggings, skinny jeans , even straight legs are not for the ‘pair’ shaped (sic), and these were 80s staples. Thankfully wide legs are gone because all they did were equalize legs so you couldn’t tell who had long tapering legs and who had short log legs. Low rise hid thick waists and big stomachs (apple shapes), which high waists do not. The 80s style is for the tall thin hourglass or androgynous shaped anyone tall, thin with long legs and broad shoulders the idea of shoulder pads was to make very broad shoulders, not to make narrow shoulders look normal. You need to be skinny to carry off very broad shoulders.

Seriously, only the vertically challenged would miss 5 inch platform heels.

’80s fragrances were great and this style is making a comeback too!

I have to say that after the drab, denim wasteland of the late 70’s, with the bell bottoms on the jeans getting bigger by the season, the 80’s, with a bit of glam and style, were a relief to those of us who were there. Suddenly clothing acknowledged gender again, after years of unisex. There were colours other than mangy shades of denim, army fatigue jacket green and dreary washed out t shirt shades the blight of the 70’s was cruddy colour.

There were extremes in the 80’s that I can do without. Stirrup pants were awful in the early 60’s, and again in the 80’s. Very few women have the figure for them. Same for leggings. But there was an attention to fabric texture and jewel tone colour in the 80’s that we could certainly use in our present wasteland of denim (deja vu), washed out hoodies, no colours other than drab grey, washed out navy and other forlorn shades, capri pants making most women look like mile wide circus midgets (it’s a very unattractive style on all the but the very tall, thin and hipless) and the endless, dreary, cheapo t shirts. Clothing now is pretty gruesome, when you think of it. Bring back a constructed, jewel tone jacket cut for a woman rather than a small man and get rid of all the ugly junk that people are wearing right now. And some fun jewellery. Some of the 80’s stuff was great.

I thought the 70s (and its more recent revival) was the decade that forgot style with ugly bell bottom pants, boy cut bathing suits and low rise pants which make hip bone structure look at least twice as wide not to mention lank lifeless hair and dull makeup. Is there anything uglier than a platform shoe? I think not. As long as it’s not taken to extremes the 80s had some good looks. The vibrant colours and use of contrast in clothes and makeup is especially flattering to brunettes. Yay! The 80’s style is back whether you like it or not.

Im pair shaped and short with naturally massive hair. Ive been waiting for my hair to come back into fashion again last time it got an airing was when Jennifer Gray’s character seduced Patrick Swayze’s character with it in ‘Dirty Dancing’. At 29, finally, Im baby.

If you are naturally curvy on the bottom with smaller breasts/shoulders half of the 80’s stlye was built to make your body rock. Go wild with: massive earrings, shoulder pads, hard collars, rolled sleeves, breast pockets, cropped jackets, tassles, huge eyes, braces, trilby hats jammed on tight and square.

Just stay away from: cropped pants, bright shoes,

johdpurs, stonewash jeans, anything anything glow yellow the dull late 90’s dark boot leg will be your friend for life in this department.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles last week cast itself as a noble corporate citizen with the feel good announcement it would underwrite a $200,000 National Safety Council campaign to reduce the huge number of open recalls across the industry.

The crux of the campaign: a new website for running recall checks, a slogan “Check to Protect” and some online advertising in a few states encouraging people to use the site to check for open recalls.

“We are optimistic that this campaign will increase awareness and ultimately improve highway safety,” said Mark Chernoby, chief technical compliance officer at FCA. “We want checking for recalls to be as natural for drivers as checking their oil or tire pressure.”

Safety advocate Joan Claybrook wasn’t impressed.

Claybrook, the former National Highway Traffic Safety Administration chief, called me Friday to make sure I got the message that FCA’s action wasn’t purely altruistic. FCA is compelled to satisfy the terms of its $90 million plus 2015 consent order with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for failure to properly administer recalls, part of which requires the company to spend money on outreach about the dangers of leaving defects unaddressed.

To Claybrook, the new website and slogan sounded like so much window dressing, an opportunity for FCA to burnish its image without having to do much work.

Claybrook faulted the National Safety Council campaign, which directs people to go to its website, “and then switches them to NHTSA, when they could easily have referred them to NHTSA” in the first place, she said. “The amount of work is relatively minimal.”

To be fair, anything that can encourage people to go to the dealer to fix a dangerous defect has some worth. The concern is that more active measures are needed to not only publicize recalls but also lure in owners, especially second or third owners who no longer have direct contact with a dealer’s service department, to come in and get them fixed.

Creative ways auto companies can increase recall response rates include use of social media (as GM did in its ignition switch recall), incentives such as a free vehicle inspection or coupons to local food establishments, she said.

Claybrook, a former president and current board member of the consumer watchdog group Public Citizen, also took the unusual step of criticizing the National Safety Council for selling out to corporations.

“It looks like they’re giving credibility to FCA,” Claybrook said. “Most safety groups do not take money from the auto industry, except for the National Safety Council.”

She called their behavior “misleading” and “unethical.”

The National Safety Council is partially funded by the auto industry and its corporate foundations. Among the donors it lists on its website for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2016, are the General Motors Foundation at the top tier, Toyota and FCA US, along with suppliers AK Steel and Cummins Inc.

“Our mission is to save preventable deaths,” council spokeswoman Maureen Vogel, said in response to the criticism. “We have a proven track record of running public education campaigns” since being chartered by Congress 105 years ago, and “15,000 companies and organizations are members because they want access to safety information.” She added: “FCA sees a danger of 53 million recalled vehicles on the road and is trying to take a leadership position.”

FCA did say it will spend another $800,000 on its own on outreach, especially in rural areas where people live away from a dealer.

“We’re not in this campaign because we want to roll up an accounting number in relation to the consent order,” said Chernoby. “It’s got nothing to do with that. We’re into this campaign because we think it’s an extremely important initiative. And we’re also facing a challenging exercise” in the Takata airbag recall.

Claybrook’s biggest problem with “Check to Protect” is that it appears to shift the burden to make sure recalls are closed from the manufacturer to the consumer.

“Most manufacturers don’t send a letter that really scares the hell out of you” or send follow up letters, and they place a lower priority on making replacement parts because they don’t want to interrupt production lines churning out components for new vehicles, Claybrook said.

cheap timberlands boots FCA case grows as a 4th is charged

DETROIT Four people have now been charged in connection with a $4.5 million embezzlement case involving the UAW and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, and an ongoing federal investigation appears likely to ensnare more high ranking officials.

Last week, a retired UAW associate director, Virdell King, was charged with using a credit card from a training center for Chrysler employees to buy more than $40,000 worth of clothing, jewelry, luggage and other personal items for herself and other senior UAW officials.

King was charged in a criminal information, a document that indicates she could accept a plea deal in exchange for evidence against co conspirators. Among the items she is accused of purchasing was a shotgun given to UAW Vice President Norwood Jewell for his birthday.

According to the union, Jewell, 59, received a shotgun for his birthday in 2015 purchased with a credit card tied to the UAW Chrysler National Training Center. Once discovering the investigation into the potential misuse of training center funds, and tracing the source of the gift, he reimbursed the union for the $2,180 cost.

“We have thoroughly investigated the matter and concluded that Norwood Jewell did nothing illegal and has acted in line with the UAW’s ethical practices,
mens timberland chukka boots FCA case grows as a 4th is charged
” the UAW said in a statement.

Charged so far, in addition to King, are former Fiat Chrysler executive Alphons Iacobelli; former FCA financial analyst Jerome Durden; and Monica Morgan, the widow of Jewell’s predecessor, General Holiefield.

Iacobelli and Morgan each had a not guilty plea entered on their behalf and are scheduled for trial in September.

Durden pleaded guilty as part of a plea deal for his involvement in funneling the money to the Chrysler training center.

Iacobelli, according to the document charging King, told an unidentified UAW official: “If you see something you want, feel free to buy it. I don’t have a problem if you buy it on the charge card.”

Following the indictment, the UAW and FCA said they had worked together with the training center to safeguard against future liability. There is now a ban on any charitable donations from the center to a charity run or controlled by a UAW official. There are also new policies and processes in place for vendors and credit cards. Additionally, budgets must be approved by training center board members or directors, and the center has a full time controller.

A hotline also was created for members to report suspected wrongdoing.

LAS VEGAS, Nev. Federal investigators returned to search the home of the Las Vegas gunman for and rechecking. search of Stephen Paddock three bedroom house on a cul de sac in a retirement community in Mesquite, Nevada, came exactly a week after Paddock opened fire on a country music crowd, killing 58 and injuring nearly 500.

In addition, the officers who raided his hotel room door the night of the shooting gave a harrowing account of a barricaded door they had to bust through and the booby traps they feared they find.

Officials said Paddock had screwed shut the door with a piece of metal and some screws, but an officer had a pry bar and was able to easily pop it open. history:

Investigators are still searching for the motive behind the attack by 64 year old Paddock.

who accompanied FBI agents as they served the search warrant.

Federal agents have spent the week collecting evidence amid the thousands of items that were abandoned in panic, some of them stained with blood.

As bullets began flying into a crowd of country music fans, a pack of 300 plus people ran about a mile to the Las Vegas airport, where they kicked down chain link fences, hobbled over razor wire and were briefly mistaken by security officials for being attackers instead of shooting victims.

Once they pushed past the fence at McCarran International Airport, some of them ran onto the tarmac as helicopters beamed searchlights toward people they assumed were intruders.

The large scale airport breach raised questions about the security of the McCarran International perimeter as people were able to barge their way through the fences of one of the nation busiest airports.

At least 200 people gathered at a Southern California school to remember a vibrant woman killed in the Las Vegas concert massacre.

Friends and family held a candlelight vigil in Placentia for 38 year old Nicol Kimura on Sunday evening a week after the mass shooting.

Pictures on display behind a row of candles showed Kimura glowing smile. Friends shared memories of Kimura passion for art and fashion and dedication to their children as an affectionate had gone to the country music festival with a group of friends. They are now trying to mourn the loss of their friend and cope with the horror of the night after a gunman shot at the crowd, killing 58 people.

timberland rigger boots Fauja Singh

timberland sizes Fauja Singh

A quick look at the 104 year old marathoner Fauja Singh’s brand associations and online presence.

At 104, he is the world’s oldest marathon runner. He holds five world records in his age group. The Indian born British citizen Fauja Singh, is an inspiration for the young, old and brands alike.

Singh is no stranger to endorsements, but brands latching on to the ‘Turbaned Tornado’ (as he is fondly called) in India is a relatively novel phenomena. Recently, as part of its completion of 100 years in India, the food and beverage brand Nestl partnered with Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon 2016, an event that saw the participation of Singh. In November last year, Nestl released the inspiring 100andRunning video to celebrate the spirit of the ‘104 year young’ marathoner.

Singh was born on April 1, 1911, in the village of Beas Pind, Punjab. After the demise of his wife and son, Singh moved to London in the 1990s in order to stay with his family. Socialising over morning jogs rekindled his interest in running, and in life. A television advert calling for entries to the London Marathon took him to Harmander Singh who later became his coach. There was no looking back for Singh thereafter.

Singh is today the oldest marathon runner having participated in eight marathon races between 2000 and 2011. He has set five records, having run the 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m, the mile, 3000m, and 5000m, in a span of 94 minutes, all in one day. In October 2011, he became the first centenarian to complete the Toronto Waterfront Marathon.

Singh’s grit and determination, along with his Herculean achievements, has made him an irresistible choice for brands. Riding on his popularity as a marathon runner, the sports shoes, clothing and accessories brand adidas brought him on board for their endorsements way back in 2004. The endorsement gave Singh a chance to feature along with soccer champion David Beckham and boxing legend Muhammad Ali in the brand’s ‘Impossible is Nothing’ campaign.

The American animal rights organisation PETA, was not to be left behind. Cashing in on Singh’s simple home cooked vegetarian eating habits, the organisation picked him to promote the vegan movement. “I only eat one chapati and one portion of lentils at a time. I don’t believe in waste or excessiveness. I eat a lot of ginger curry,” Singh had revealed in an interview to PETA.

Singh also carried the Olympic torch at the 2004 Athens Olympics and the 2012 London Olympics. He has a Facebook following of over 80,000. Over the years, Singh has lent support to various causes such as raising funds for the Nepal earthquake (2015) victims. He ran for the UK based charity Bliss that works to provide care and support for all premature and sick babies and their families. Speaking about his experience of writing the book, he says, “Fauja Singh’s coach contacted asked if I could spare a year of my life for the task. All I can now say is that the entire experience was like a pilgrimage for me. It had a deep impact on me in terms of the possibilities of human achievements, what the human mind and body synced together can achieve!”

Father reveals what it’s like to suffer with male post natal depressionLouis Dunn, 27, always wanted to be a Dad but when son Frankie, now 20 months, finally arrived, something came over him07:00, 1 OCT 2017Updated07:44, 1 OCT 2017Louis with Frankie Get daily updates directly to your inbox+ SubscribeThank you for subscribing!Could not subscribe, try again laterInvalid EmailI met my partner Daisy, 31, in a bar in Bristol four years ago. She was really bold, came over to me and said something along the lines of, ‘You’re so beautiful.’ It was pretty much love at first sight.A couple of months later, we began living together in a house Daisy shared with 12 others. We were worried about moving in so soon, but it worked so getting our own place a couple of months later seemed like a natural progression.I was working in the Apple Store in Bristol, doing really well but success for me has never been about having money and property, it was about building a family unit. Although I was 23, being a dad was something I’d always wanted and I was waiting for the right person. I knew Daisy was that person, so very early on in our relationship we talked about starting a family. Daisy said she was ready too, so 18 months after we met, we decided to try for a baby. It happened very quickly, and three weeks after we stopped using protection Daisy’s pregnancy test read positive! I was young 25 but I wanted the responsibility. There was an alarming moment after he was born Daisy was bleeding badly and it was like a scene from Casualty, with lots of people crowding round her trying to work out what was going on. Daisy was quite out of it, so I was holding Frankie and it crossed my mind that I could lose her and be a single dad. Thankfully, Daisy had suffered a bad tear rather than a haemorrhage, so wasn’t in danger, and I was soon able to put the thought out of my mind.Daisy and Frankie came home after a couple of days in hospital and we settled into a routine. While Daisy rested, I watched James Bond with Frankie sleeping on my chest. Then we’d take him out in the pram for a walk. We were both happy and enjoying working out what we needed to do as parents.”It can be lonely”: Peter Andre’s wife Emily MacDonagh reveals motherhood makes her feel isolatedThen the first time I went out on my own without Frankie, when he was about three weeks old, I suffered an intrusive thought an unpleasant, involuntary image that was really distressing. I was walking to the bike shop when I thought, ‘What if I get hit by a car?’ The world suddenly felt very dangerous and I had an unwelcome twinge of anxiety. I’ve suffered with anxiety all my life, but I’d been having counselling and had taken antidepressants, so thought it was under control.Scary thoughts The thoughts started to creep in more and more. ‘What if Frankie’s blanket suffocates him?’ was a typical, manageable, normal thought for a new parent, but gradually the thoughts became about me being physically violent and of killing this child that I was completely and utterly in love with.I knew I would not act, but the more I tried to block the thoughts, the darker and darker they became. Was my subconscious pushing me to get help? I don’t know, but the harder I tried to ignore them, the worse they got. It was like trying to ignore a pink elephant in the room.One was, ‘What if I put him on the floor and crush him with my knee?’ and another was, ‘What if I stamp on his head?’ I began obsessing about the knives in the house and thought if I collected them all and put them outside that would be a safer place for them. I was scared I might pick one up and use it.Frankie crying in the night was a trigger too. It was far more scary in the dark and I began to believe I really could harm him. I was working for a charity, and at work one day I couldn’t stop crying, so they signed me off with the number for a support helpline. I called and was told that, as a new dad, my anxieties were understandable but this felt like more than anxiety.How you can overcome not loving or feeling an attachment to your child and understand whyI began reading stuff about postnatal depression and one symptom was having thoughts that you could harm your child. This happened to lots of parents, but it didn’t make me feel better. It was agonising I hated the thoughts, and even though I knew that’s all they were, I felt guilty for having them. I told Daisy and she was as supportive as she could be while trying to look after Frankie.Everything exploded when Frankie was three months old. He was crying one night and she asked me to pick him up. I said, ‘I can’t, I can’t. All these thoughts are in my head.’ She snapped and said she couldn’t cope with me.At the end of my tether and completely hysterical, I left home at 7am having not slept all night. I began calling the counselling numbers one lady said, ‘You need to get some help, you’re really struggling here.’ That scared me, so I dialled 111 who advised me to go to Bristol Royal Infirmary. I walked into A and was asked lots of questions about whether I’d ever been violent. That’s not the person I am, I’ve never been violent, but social services were alerted just in case. With no history of aggression, everyone felt I was safe to go home, so I left with a prescription for an anti anxiety drug and antidepressants.Finding help My parents just happened to be staying, and after a week I went home with them, while Daisy went to stay with her parents. ‘I feel like I’ve lost you,’ she said in a phone call. I told her I wanted to make myself better, so I could devote myself to her and Frankie.A psychiatrist diagnosed Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), triggered by becoming a dad. I began seeing a psychotherapist who helped and I continued with the antidepressants. I talked to Bluebell, a postnatal depression charity in Bristol who gave me a non judgemental space to talk. I felt a stigma about my anxiety and guilty that this was supposed to be a happy time.There’s so little provision for men suffering PND, so when Bluebell received a grant from the Big Lottery Fund to set up Bluebell Place, a perinatal drop in centre, I started Dad’s In Mind in conjunction with them, specifically to help fathers with postnatal issues.I provide peer support to dads who, just like me, are overwhelmed with fatherhood. Bluebell provided me with basic counselling training and I’m supervised by a psychiatrist who is there to talk about difficult cases. The local council also provided me with training in child safe guarding.

timberland childrens shoes Father John Misty at Surly Festival Field

timberland cabot Father John Misty at Surly Festival Field

Josh Tillman, the man behind the beard and the shades and the attention grabbing interviews, seems to know he’s at a peak. He put on a show just a hair smaller than a mainstream star’s. His band included a small chamber orchestra, and everyone on stage wore suits. The ugly little people from his dense Pure Comedy artwork crawled across a projector screen behind the band. The set’s swirling instrumentation conjured a time when socially conscious, densely arranged folk rock was tentpole of the music landscape.

Of course, the postmodern hook of Tillman’s music under the Misty name is that it always lampoons the indie folk conventions it simultaneously exemplifies, which lent a certain tension to his performance.

This year’s Pure Comedy is likely the biggest album Father John Misty will ever release, in terms of both its ambition and his visibility. It’s an impressive achievement, but one that makes the whole of human civilization the butt of some pretty dark jokes. Tillman is smart enough to let some compassion peek through at strategic points, but there’s still something surreal about hearing the misanthropy and condescension of the title track played at an outdoor event with food trucks, backlit by a beautiful, warm, late summer twilight.

Tillman seemed to acknowledge that strangeness with some oblique humor. He inserted a spoken word monologue into “When You’re Smiling and Astride Me,” his lyrics’ narrator requesting of his lover that, instead of drinking their usual white wine, they take a trip “down to the brewery,” where they would be able to not only drink beer, but also see a performer who sounded an awful lot like Father John Misty.

“They’ll have varietals of beer that are light, that are not hoppy, that are unpretentious,” he said. “We are going to see what is maybe the strangest man that the internet has ever produced, and we are going to see him sing about his thoughts, and his feelings, down at the brewery, my love.”

The set was frontloaded with a selection of Pure Comedy cuts before proceeding through songs from his other two albums, 2015’s love and sex themed masterpiece I Love You, Honeybear and 2012’s dry run with some good songs Fear Fun, as well as “Real Love Baby,” the effortless folk pop gem he dropped as a standalone track in 2016. Whether you like or loathe the way he uses his talent writing virtuosic, witty songs that are always as much about themselves as they are about the universal themes they typically address it’s hard to deny his facility with language, or his confident hand with structure and arrangement. He dances! (Mostly ironically, but still, pretty well.) His voice is just as honeyed live, and his band is subtly red hot. His bassist plays with a pick, nailing the chunky, loping lines often deployed by late ’60s studio bands. The strings ensured his lush arrangements were just as they sound on record, with a bit of the grandeur of Scott Walker or Randy Newman. The part where the band drops in on “Pure Comedy” is killer; the only thing missing is a kick line.

Misty’s set wasn’t all retro: The circa 2004 Postal Service sounding curveball “True Affection,” a standout from I Love You, Honeybear, was a shimmering, cavernous stadium electro pop showstopper. It’s one of the few FJM songs that’s vulnerable straight through, which means its stands out against the layered irony of the rest.

A giant heart appeared on the projector screen behind Tillman during “True Affection,” where a few songs previously a view of planet Earth from space had shown up. The latter graphic seems to emphasize distance, like we were observing the world from the outside with Tillman, but the former seems to emphasize closeness, human connection. Those sentiments are always hard won in Misty’s music, and more striking for it.

Choice banter: “I don’t particularly have any observations or anything to say at this time,” Tillman deadpanned during the first break he took to banter between songs.

Minnesota connection: Our very own Har Mar Superstar (aka Sean Tillmann [no relation]) came on stage before the encore to deliver a toast, slurring his speech a little, later planting a kiss on FJM too.

“He’s my Midwestern friend,” Tillman said after Tillmann left the stage. “This man has character.”

There’s some added context here: Saturday morning, before the show, Tillman’s fellow big mouthed folk rocker Ryan Adams randomly insulted Father John Misty in a series of tweets, at one point (awesomely but incorrectly see Randy Newman comparison, above) calling him “Elton Josh.” Who jumped to Tillman’s defense on Twitter? Har Mar, in a disarming display of Minnesota nice.

Note about the opener: I was almost as interested in seeing Tennis as FJM. Their 2012 sophomore album, Young Old, is in my personal canon for its mix of taut drumming and gorgeous vocal melodies.

They deepened the ’70s vibe of the show with their AM radio ready classicist pop, which contained hints of girl groups, Fleetwood Mac, disco, and yacht rock. Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley, the married couple at the core of the group, were decked out respectively in a brown, backless top with striped bellbottoms and glitter covered platform shoes, and washed out blue jeans and a vintage looking Late Show with David Letterman t shirt. The drums were muted with handkerchiefs, and Moore’s electric piano was wood paneled, like the inside of an old station wagon.

timberland kids jackets Father and son discuss battling mental illness and the art it inspires

timberland shorts Father and son discuss battling mental illness and the art it inspires

My son Henry was diagnosed with schizophrenia when he was a 20 year old art student in Brighton in 2002. He had tried to swim across the estuary at Newhaven that February and was rescued from the freezing water by fishermen and taken to hospital, unconscious and suffering from hypothermia.

Henry was sectioned a year later and spent the next eight years confined in mental hospitals in the grip of a psychosis that ebbed and flowed but from which he could not escape. He disappeared into a mental world where no barrier existed between dreams, nightmares and reality and the voices of trees and bushes spoke to him, became his friends and told him what to do. He hated being confined in hospital but could scarcely have survived outside it as he wandered through east Kent, sometimes walking naked along railway tracks or swimming lakes and rivers in mid winter.

He ran away from hospitals some 30 times, but his very inability to look after himself meant that he usually, though not invariably, was found within a few days. It seemed all too likely to my wife Jan and myself that he would not live long and we were in dread of a final call from the police saying that it was all over. In his more rational moments, Henry agreed with this, repeatedly saying: “I do not think I am going to live past 30.”

In the event, Henry’s strong underlying will to live, medical attention, family support and a fair measure of luck, meant that he did survive, unlike many of his friends in a similar situation. From 2007 the impact of his disorder began to recede, mainly because he came under the care of a consultant who saw to it that he was no longer spitting out his medication, which controlled though it did not cure his illness.

As he returned to a more rational view of the world, he spoke to me of a deep sense of failure and inadequacy, knowing that his friends from school were getting jobs, marrying and having children, while he sat wrapped in a blanket in the locked ward of a mental hospital. In a bid to bring success and a sense of achievement into Henry’s life, I suggested that he and I write a book about his horrible experiences as they affected him and his family. After all, he knew all too much from the inside about what it was like to suffer a psychosis and live for years in a mental hospital, things that most people regard with fear and know little about. The book Henry’s Demons: Living with Schizophrenia, a Father and Son’s Story comprises alternate chapters by Henry and myself and a long excerpt from my wife Jan’s diary. It was published in 2011 and became a bestseller.

Henry was then living in a halfway house in Lewisham and by no means fully recovered when he wrote his chapters. In the last lines of the book, much commented on by reviewers, he wrote that “it has been a very long road for me but I think I am entering the final straight. There is a tree I sit under in the garden in Lewisham which speaks to me and gives me hope.” He still had quite a long way to go, moving first to a flat in Herne Bay where he lived largely independently, though there was a mental health nurse present during the day to assist or in case of emergencies. He decided to go back to art college in 2012 which gave essential structure to his life and where he got a good degree. He moved into his own flat in Canterbury in 2017 where he lives entirely independently, though still taking medication to which he sees no alternative.

Henry drew and painted with vigour and originality from an early age and always wanted to be a professional artist. The first real sign that something was going wrong in his mind, though I did not understand this at the time, came in the summer of 2001, six months before his breakdown when I took him and his younger brother Alex on holiday to Venice.

Henry was skilful at swiftly sketching people he met accidentally and, in this case, he drew two women travelling in the same boat as ourselves on the Grand Canal in China. Usually people were full of praise for Henry’s work, but on this occasion the women looked perplexed by what he had drawn, and I could see why when I looked at his sketchpad which was covered with meandering lines. He continued to draw and paint in hospital over the coming years. This had a good effect on him, though his pictures were dark and menacing. It was only gradually that his talent fully returned and only this year that he felt distanced enough from hospital and psychosis to portray them in a series of 10 paintings published here for the first time in a three part series.

The subject of the paintings, along with articles by Henry and myself, is what happened to him since the moment of his first breakdown and how he survived it. Our hope is that our experiences will be of practical use to others similarly afflicted and show that it is possible to struggle successfully against a psychosis and for a victim to regain a large measure of happiness.

Henry at his worst, was very mad indeed, yet against the odds, he did live through full blown schizophrenia from which Jan and I despaired at times of him ever emerging with his personality intact and capacity to live a creative life restored. These 10 paintings take Henry from the day he hid in a tree, whose branches spoke to him, on a railway embankment while police searched for him in 2002 to rapping on stage to a cheering crowd 15 years later. Other pictures portray grim experiences: his near drowning in Newhaven estuary, solitary confinement in a locked room in hospital and his forcible sedation by hospital staff. These are depressing subjects but ones which Henry paints and writes about with surprising buoyancy and vivacity.

When Henry first became ill, I found that most of the population knows nothing about mental illness and its treatment, but a large minority knows all too much. At any one time in Britain, there are 220,000 people being treated for schizophrenia by the NHS. (Take undiagnosed cases into account, the true figure of sufferers may twice that.)

The effects of schizophrenia are devastating: some 5 to 10 per cent of those suffering from it kill themselves and only 13 per cent are able to work again. At the time Henry was rescued from Newhaven estuary, I was part of the ill informed majority who believe that schizophrenia and bipolar depression are distinct diagnosable illnesses like typhoid or polio, though in fact they are a set of fluid symptoms that may change over time.

I remember returning from seeing Henry for the first time after his rescue in the former Brighton Hove Priory clinic in 2002 and being horrified. I had looked up “schizophrenia” online to discover that a leading American doctor had described the condition as being to mental illness what cancer was to physical ailments. The average age of its onset is 18 for men and 25 for women. Genes may make some especially vulnerable to the disorder doctors are always asking if there is a family history of mental illness but most victims have no such history. Almost any personal or social adversity can contribute to producing “schizophrenia” which is not a distinct entity but is rather the severe end of psychosis.

The most useful advice about how not to deal with schizophrenia came to me early on from Marjorie Wallace, head of the mental health charity Sane, and heroic campaigner for the rights of sufferers of mental illness. She warned me against imagining that there was any cure all magic bullet available.

She said one should not expect better treatment in the private sector than in the NHS or suppose that there is some super drug or exotic therapy that can be obtained by spending a lot of money. “Unfortunately, they [such cures] don’t exist,” she said. “Whatever you do, stick to the NHS.” The advice is worth repeating because some families, shocked and desperately seeking to save their children,

ruin themselves in pursuit of non existent cures.

A surprise in those early days was that when I mentioned what was happening to Henry to close friends, a high proportion of them replied that they had a parent, brother, sister or child who suffered from the same condition. None of them had ever mentioned this to me before, probably because of the pain involved and the fear of a relative being stigmatised or treated as a pariah. Whatever may be said about increased public sympathy for mentally illness, most people are secretly or openly terrified of real madness. (When people like Prince Harry call for greater openness about mental health they are generally speaking, though they may not realise it, talking about something less incapacitating than serious psychosis in which a person’s whole personality is capsized.) Maintaining secrecy is damaging in a way that may not at first be obvious to those who are doing all they can to protect somebody close to them.

The disorder may be life sentence and the victim will have difficulty surviving it without continuing support from their family and close friends. Only they can provide the necessary physical and moral support, but they need to know what has gone wrong, the nature of the illness and what they can do to help. Their contribution is all the more necessary because of the disastrous rundown of the old system of mental hospitals in the US and UK so there are now more mentally ill people in prison in both countries than there are in hospitals.

The asylums were supposed to be replaced by “care in the community” or as former Health Secretary Alan Milburn put it, what amounted to a “couldn’t care less in the community” policy. Government enthusiasm for closing places where people in real need of protection can get a bed was fuelled by the knowledge that it is 44 times cheaper to entrust them to largely non existent communal care. The only real safety net is the family: Jan and I were fortunate in that we both come from large and supportive families. They visited him in hospital, called him up on his mobile and were there for him when he called them. They also sustained us with advice and sympathy which helped preserve our own physical and mental wellbeing.

It is too easy to exhaust oneself emotionally in dealing with the first onset of mental illness on a close relative. I made a mistake during the first year of Henry’s illness of resigning from my job on The Independent in order to devote all my efforts to looking after him. But this was not a moment for dramatic gestures and my decision just added to our family’s already excessive level of stress. It would have been far better to maintain established routines and not to further disrupt our lives.

I came to see combating Henry’s psychosis not as a matter of eliminating it entirely, but of confining its influence to a smaller and smaller part of his mind. No counter measure is a cure all, but this did not mean that schizophrenia cannot be brought under a degree of control. The right medication is a necessity, but at best can only suppress the worst symptoms of the illness. People are often over optimistic about therapies like CBT, but these only really work if mental ill health is a long way short of psychosis or a large measure of recovery has already occurred. Severe mental illness inflicts such miseries on sufferers a pariah status, joblessness, poverty, isolation that they can decide that life has nothing to offer them so drug or alcohol abuse and suicide become rational choices. Henry was able to escape this downward spiral because he had endurance, intelligence and education and was sustained by family and friends. Somebody without these advantages would have difficulty surviving, as this series should help explain.

Surviving mental illness a journey with pictures by Henry Cockburn

When people ask me what my profession is I answer “I’m an artist”. When people ask what my art is about, I say that it tells stories. Then when people ask what the stories are about I stumble. This is because my latest paintings are about my time in mental hospital after being diagnosed with schizophrenia in 2002. I was sectioned for eight consecutive years. I escaped from locked wards 30 times and there were moments when I believed I would not live beyond the age of 30. I have been out of hospital for six years, and I have gone back to university and got a 2:1 degree in art. I have had several exhibitions. I’ve got my own flat and I’m living independently. I should be happy, my life is getting better but to be honest the scars of being shut up in hospital have not healed.

It is very difficult to explain what it is like to have a psychosis and to be locked up in a mental hospital, run away, almost drown and spend long days in an isolation cell. These 10 paintings are my way of distancing myself from those events. They were not painful to draw because I could look at them from a different angle. I survived mental hospital, gruelling though it was, and have come out the other side. At the time, I did not think this would happen. The message to others suffering the same way is to be resilient hold on, just hold on, and understand that this will end one day. I’m afraid many of my friends and fellow patients did not believe this and took their own lives, may they rest in peace.

The first painting in the series depicts me hiding in a tree by the train tracks with police looking for me with flashlights. I was studying for a fine art degree at the University of Brighton. I made many friends and had a good social life. But I wanted more: I wanted to stray from the beaten track, I wanted to find something although I didn’t quite know what that something would be. I started believing in magic and in a way I found it

I discarded my shoes, going for long walks, gave up drinking and smoking weed. My fellow students thought that I had turned into an oddball, telling me that I’d end up being pumped full of drugs in hospital. As it turned out they were right but several things happened before then, things that changed the course of my life. These paintings are an attempt to relate what happened to me, and to put them on canvas.

The painting “On the run” shows the first of my adventures. I had taken the decision to flee the city. I walked and walked until I came to an embankment by the railway tracks covered with brambles, I made the decision to jump over a fence and, as I did, the brambles tightened around me. Then a train went past and I felt frightened that I’d get caught. I bolted and hid under the roots of a tree. The roots moved, touching my fingers and then went all around me. I began to hear a voice in my mind, a voice of someone much older and wiser than myself the voice of the tree. It was a silent voice, not audible to the ears, though I could still hear it. In the distance, I could see people looking for me under the night stars with flashlights. There was a dog barking. But I was not afraid because I felt in the care of the tree.

As the night went on, I talked to the tree about many things it seemed to know about me: where I had gone, who my friends were and who loved me. It told me that I could do things that I could never dream of doing, that I could rap, that life was a game and many other things. I talked and talked until it got late and no more trains went by. I stumbled back to the city. I kept this a secret for a long time afterwards, not wanting to betray the tree. Some would say that this was the tipping point, my descent into madness I won’t have a bit of it.

For the next couple of weeks I continued my wanderings around Brighton. I felt as though a new world had opened up for me and there was more to life than I had expected. I relished the thought of further magical encounters like that of the speaking tree. While the rest of the students at college were busy working or dating each other, I changed. I became a vegan, abstained from alcohol and marijuana, and became very solitary. I felt there was more to life than the pursuit of money.

Early one morning I walked a long way to the east of Brighton beach, past the houses until it was just me and the coast. The cliffs were manmade out of giant breeze blocks, each one the size of a large haystack. I wondered what was behind the wall, I had the feeling I had been there before, when I was very little and my mother and I had taken a trip to Sussex.
