Once again Mattel has crafted another beautiful holiday collectible. I find 2012 to recall a glamorous Barbie, rather than some of the trendier styles of past years (see 2006's Barbie - Holiday Barbie 2006 Doll by Bob Mackie (2006) Mattel).
Barbie is stunning in 2012 in a shimmering red strapless gown. The gown is accentuated by a beautiful stylish bow with silver glitter embellishment reminiscent of a holly branch. The shimmering fabric is filled out with matching red tulle beneath. Barbie has complimentary silver earrings and a necklace.
Her beautiful blonde hair is side parted and rolled in thick tendrils. Her make-up is very dramatic iridescent pearl eyebrow highlight with brown eye shadow and lips a deep red to match her gown.
The box is a white, silver, and red Christmas tree and present scene to display Barbie in all her glory.
She is a collectible doll, so I do not take her out of her box. I do not recommend this doll for young children, or those who wish to play with the doll in regular Barbie fashion. Although she is not a very expensive collectible doll, she is still a collectible doll, so please use caution.
I highly recommend those who collect Barbie, or for those who wish to start. Do also look into the matching ornament.
I look forward to reading and reviewing this fine series every year. Science journalists have a harder time finding places to publish these days, hard science is less available, and the articles are getting fluffier. That's not really OK with me but it is what it is - and it reflects the scientific literacy of most US readers and is thus inevitable. Among the gems in this year's selections are the following:
*One of my favorites - "What Broke My Father's Heart" by Butler: Good article about end of life issues - that can be less like a battle and more like a massacre. There's nothing like the profit motive to keep people from being allowed to die in peace.
*One of my favorites - "Hot Air" by Homans: The "dumbing down" of science has infected our local TV weathermen. They enjoy a large respect factor from the public, sometimes being looked at as science ambassadors in their communities. Unfortunately, they may not know much science outside their immediate field - short-term prediction of weather - and have been known to misrepresent climate change issues.
"The Singularity" by Zimmer: Why Artificial Intelligence will not replace the human brain - but there are certainly technologies that might enhance it. Zimmer is a great science writer and does justice to this large subject.
"BP's Deep Secrets" by Whitty: In depth study of the long term environmental impacts of the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill and much about the physiology of the deep.
"The Estrogen Dilemma" by Gorney: Hormone replacement therapy may carry a few risks but the symptoms of menopause can be tough to deal with. Good example of why epidemiological studies are so hard to interpret. The variables and intricacies are endless.
"Cary in the Sky With Diamonds" by Beauchamp and Balaban: A couple of psychiatrists in Beverly Hills in the late fifties had long sessions with their famous patients starting with little blue pills - an adjunct to their psychotherapy. "Look" magazine gave a big thumbs up to the new wonder drug and Cary Grant swore LSD made him a new man.
"The Longest Home Run Ever" by Brenkus: The Physics of the game. Mickey Mantle hit the longest home run on record in 1953 - 565 feet. In neurotic detail our author calculates how far the ideal batter could hit the ideal pitch under ideal circumstances.
*My favorite - "Nature's Spoils" by Burkhard Bilger: A delightful romp through an alternative lifestyle as you rediscover the symbiotic relationship between humankind and bacteria. The author takes us from "urban squatters" who are not above dumpster diving to homesteaders living on communes who prefer raw milk and roadkill. Be prepared to "read through" some of the earthier parts of this article while our author drives home the idea that "Modern hygiene has prevented countless colds, fevers, and other ailments, but its central premise is hopelessly outdated. The human body isn't besieged: it's saturated - infused with microbial life at every level."
*My least favorite - "The Mess He Made" by Rosenwald: The office a**hole used to be just a jerk but nowadays he has a psychiatric diagnosis. Likewise, in this article, the author tries to make his pathological messiness into something more than laziness and unwillingness to change bad habits. I can't imagine what this is doing in a collection of science essays. Another article or two like this one and I'd have had to downgrade the book's rating.
"Professor Tracks Injuries With Aim of Prevention" by Schwarz: "Fred Mueller has almost singlehandedly run the National Center For Catastrophic Injury Research at the University of North Carolina for 30 years, logging and analyzing more than 1,000 fatal, paralytic, or other ghastly injuries in sports from peewees to the pros. His work has repeatedly improved safety for young athletes by identifying patterns that lead to changes in rules, field dimensions, and more."
"The Trouble With Scientists" by Blum: Scientists have historically been loath to engage the general public. They have even, at times, discriminated against certain of their colleagues (Carl Sagan, for example) who have tried to make science more available. That is changing and the author praises those scientists who blog, speak, or otherwise engage the general public - a public that is a bit antiscience these days and certainly needs to be more attuned to the scientific method that helped bring humanity out of the dark ages.
*One of my favorites - "The Data Trail" by Folger - Dave Bertelsen has been hiking in the Sonora desert for nearly 30 years and taking notes - as a hobby. After a talk by climatologist Michael Crimmins in Tuscon, Bertelsen approached him and said, "I have a big data set - I don't know if you'd be interested." Crimmins and his wife, an ecologist, were blown away by his data. His mile-by-mile notes are now being used by scientists at the University of Tuscon to study how global warming has changed the desert.
"Earth on Fire" by Ohlson: People have reported fires in coal beds for thousands of years. Ever since the industrial revolution, numbers of smoldering coal beds have increased dramatically around the world. The coal bed fire was so bad in (now ghosttown) Centralia, Pennsylvania that Congress gave Pennsylvania $42 million to relocate all its citizens.
"A Deadly Misdiagnosis" by Specter: "While hardly a threat in the West, tuberculosis is still a killer in the developing world." A new test is available to expedite diagnosis but it might not be used in India where the disease is a huge problem. Doctors in India make so much of their money using ineffective methods of diagnosis and treatment, they'd rather keep the status quo.
That's 14 out of 21 - I think you get the idea. This is a great read.
I actually paid more to get this book quicker than the workbook and scarf and I got both of them first, so that did not impress me. Also the cover was kinda worn, like old and broken in. Not ripped or anything, and inside was highlighted but only the first chapter, so not bad at all for the price. Overall, I am very happy with it. I love the book and the contents are fantastic so it is worth all the rest.
I received this product thru the Smiley360 program just in time for the first cold sore of the season (I usually get 2 or 3 every winter). I applied the product at the first sign of tingling and itching (much easier to use than other products), the sting came first, then the numbing of the area. I reapplied the other dose the next day. When using this product I cut the healing time in half and didn't experience any of the dry, cracking skin or bleeding in the cold sore area.
Short and to the point....I would recommend this. It is easier to apply than other products, more convenient to carry with you for an easy application, more effective and quicker for healing.
In the darkest, most empty places in this life (which seem to be oh-so-more common than they should be), occasionally one finds some shamanistic object to relieve the crushing nothingness; the incredible agonising reduction to a point beyond infinity that means less than zero can somehow be mitigated for one shining second like razor blade slicing through pain made real.
Somehow, this milk is able to achieve an almost post-modern symbolic status in this search for redemption and relief in a world covered in the ichor of stagnation; the life lived as damned from creation.
As I sat in the darkness, trying to open my blank mouth enough to engorge my emotion starved pallet with this milk (or Mana in some deep and primordial sense), I realised that this was the one moment where I could someone free the psychic chains of a blind, angry God; one moment where the torture of infinity would break and offer a second of solace; of peace and meditation.
At that very moment in time, at that critical second, I dropped the bottle and spilt all the milk onto the old, dead floorboards of my darkened kitchen. I saw the last drops evaporate like my dreams, leaving a stain like pain in the gloom.
I should have realised that I was finished from the start. This milk was damned, as am I, but it was only doing what it was meant to do in this play of the soul - hence the 5 stars.
Shipping was prompt and the label was nice, if a little tacky.
