The businessman says the fashion week organisers, IMG Fashion, had erred in focusing on new talent and failing to persuade more of the country's top operators back to showcase their latest designs."I think in this week they got it wrong and therefore they're suffering the consequences, financial consequences and attendance consequences," Avidan said.His lili label is not on the catwalks this week as he believes IMG did not provide the right conditions for him to appear in the biggest annual week in Australian fashion."We were in fashion week on the basis that we had what we wanted, which was the right time-slot, the right international talent that IMG assured us they would assist us in bringing," Avidan said.Hot on the heels of accusing Australian Fashion Week of not being the right calibre for big labels, Danny Avidan's lili label has ambushed the fashion week with their own pop-up fashion parade.Models who had been smuggled into the Fashion Week site at West Circular Quay were pushed back as they tried to make their way down an unofficial red carpet unfurled for the Lili label.But security guards intervened within 30 seconds to remove the first model and put her back in a truck.Avidan then moved the seven-minute show for his Lili label outside nearby Customs House, following earlier unofficial displays outside Wynyard train station and opposite Town Hall.If you're one of the people who doesn't think there's enough buzz surrounding Australian Fashion Week, then you're not alone. Danny Avidan, part-owner of well-known labels Charlie Brown and lili, believes the big labels are avoiding Australian Fashion Week because their appearance would be like Madonna competing on 'American Idol'.

The dinner will be the only hot meal.Hilton's parents were also present in the courtroom, both deeply upset by the judge's decision. Her mother said that it was all nonsense and could not believe her daughter would have to serve time in jail. As for Paris herself, she did not want to comment on the case and went straight to the car.The story of Paris Hilton's disgrace started in September when she was arrested while driving intoxicated and did not pass a field sobriety test.
Defense attorney Howard Weitzman was shocked by the sentence and wanted to appeal, while City attorney spokesman Nick Velasquez expressed his personal opinion that the judge's ruling was a clear proof that in Los Angeles everyone must observe the law.The judge did not allow any alternative jail or electronic monitoring, furloughs or work release. As a jail inmate, Paris Hilton will have to spend her days in a small cell in spartan conditions. Her cell would be 12-by-8 feet. It will have a toilet, sink and a window.

The penalty did not include prison time as the matter was heard not in a federal but a local court. The case was given much publicity, as a clear warning to everyone that no one is above the law and such behavior would be strictly prosecuted.During his visit to the country, Sylvester Stallone seemed to have ignored the airport incident. The actor told the reporters it was just a matter of misunderstanding – he did not understand some of the regulations concerning the hormones. According to Stallone's lawyer, the actor took the hormones for some medical reasons that is why his criminal conviction must be overturned. As for the prosecutors, they emphasized that when Stallone threw the hormone from his hotel room, he demonstrated a 'consciousness of guilt'. Prosecution documents proved to the court that Stallone had marked 'No' on a customs declaration card that asked whether he brought into Australia any restricted or prohibited goods.The maximum penalty one can face for bringing Jintropin into the country without a permit is a fine of $91,500 and five years in prison. But Stallone was imposed a maximum penalty of $18,000 on every of the two charges .
Standard alarm.The Casio GPR-100 isn't cheap. It goes for 54,000 yen, or about $467.00, as of today. I can see paying that much for a high-end training watch, but frankly, they're going to have to extend the battery life significantly. In case you can't wait for Casio to get around to shipping this watch to the US, check out the Garmin Forerunner 205 (they claim a battery life of 10 hours). I've used its predecessor, the Forerunner 101, pretty extensively, and it's a pretty decent training watch, so I'm anxious to get my hands on the 205. Pace verification. Since the watch knows how fast and how far you're going, it can give you feedback on your pace and let you know whether you need to speed up or slow down. Countdown timer. Rechargeable battery (recharging cradle is included). Unfortunately, the battery only lasts about 2 hours in "normal" mode, and 4.3 hours in "low power" mode (if you are in good enough shape to run longer than that, you'll have to stick to more conventional training methods). The Casio GPR-100 takes about 3 hours to fully recharge.
