Andrea Muizelaar on fashion, anorexia, and life after ‘Top Model’

Monday, November 26, 2007

In the 18 months since Andrea Muizelaar was crowned winner of the reality TV series Canada’s Next Top Model, her life has been a complete whirlwind. From working in a dollar store in her hometown of Whitby, Ontario, to modeling haute couture in Toronto, she had reached her dream of becoming a true Top Model.

But at what cost? Unknown to casual television viewers, Muizelaar had been enveloped in the eating disorder anorexia nervosa, which inevitably became too much for her to bear. She gave up modeling and moved back to Whitby, where she sought treatment for her disorder, re-entered college, and now works at a bank. Where is she now? Happy and healthy, she says.

Recently Andrea Muizelaar sat down with Wikinews reporter Mike Halterman in a candid interview that stretched to nearly two hours, as she told all about her hopes and aspirations, her battle with anorexia, and just what really happened on Canada’s Next Top Model.

How To Find Cheap Homeowners Insurance Without Killing The Historical Value Of Your House

By Cliff Berman

There’s something really, really cool about living in a house that’s had the opportunity to be a little piece of history. Do you remember “Sweet Home Alabama”? It’s like there’s ghosts in every hallway. That doesn’t stop a historic home from being a giant pain to buy homeowners insurance for, however. As a matter of fact there might be plenty of days in the near future when you’re tempted to just bulldoze the darn thing and start all over again.

Don’t do that. It’s not that bad.

It’s true that your homeowners insurance rates are going to be a lot higher to insure a historical home than they would be if you just owned your average cookie cutter home in the suburbs. It’s the nature of the beast. But they have a good explanation!

If you live in a historic district the homes there are intended to be a perfect representation of exactly what they looked like during whichever era of history made them famous. For example, if you live in and around Fredericksburg, VA, Charleston, SC or Savannah, GA you’re probably not convinced that the war between the states ever really ended. How could it, when you still see it everywhere you look?

YouTube Preview Image

While this is really, really cool for tourists it’s a really big pain for homeowners insurance companies. Historic districts are governed by a historical committee that has dedicated their life to preserving the sanctity of these moments in history, right down the very last slime covered toadstool-or in your case, slate shingle. They can even go so far as to insist that slate shingle come from the very same quarry as the original when you’re rebuilding.

This takes time and money. Lots of money. You have to have the slate imported, and you have to find craftsmen who know how to work with it. Believe it or not, historic craftsmen and masons who know their way around a historical district aren’t as easy to come by as you might think.

Are you having sympathy migraines? That’s how your homeowners insurance provider feels when they’re handling your home insurance claims, which is why most regular home insurance policies don’t cover houses over 100 years old. Fortunately for everyone there are companies that specialize in insuring historical property. If you’re having a hard time finding an insurance provider, or you have a question about insuring or renovating your historical home, you can contact the National Trust for Historical Preservation. They should be able to answer your questions.

Of course, that doesn’t help you find cheap homeowners insurance. The good news is that renovating your home can actually go a long way toward shaving money off your homeowners insurance rates without destroying its historical value. Simple things bringing the wiring up to code or fixing up the plumbing not only make your home more livable (and/or tour group friendly) it also saves you money on your home insurance because it’s not likely to spontaneously combust or flood when the pipes break.

At least, not any time soon.

With a little TLC your historical home can stand for another 100 years, with a sturdy home insurance policy backing it up every step of the way.

Major snowstorm causes 35-car pile-up in western U.S.

Saturday, February 24, 2007

A fast, but potent, snowstorm passing through the United States state of Colorado dropped more than a foot of snow and caused a 35-car pile-up on one of the U.S.’s major highways, Interstate 70.

The collision happened Saturday morning when white-out conditions, caused by 68 MPH sustained winds, hit the area. Despite the pileup, officials report that there were no major injuries.

Interstate 70 was closed in both directions on Saturday, on a route from Denver to the Kansas state border, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation. The storm also forced the closure of 125 miles of highway on Interstate 80.

A blizzard warning remained in effect for parts of Kansas and Nebraska.

Golfer Tiger Woods injured in car crash

Friday, November 27, 2009

American golfer Tiger Woods has been injured in a car crash near his home in Orlando, Florida. Woods was reported to have been leaving his home around 2:30 a.m. (EST) in his 2009 Cadillac Escalade, when he collided with a fire hydrant and a tree down the street.

Woods was taken to Health Central Hospital, and treated for facial lacerations. Early reports described his injuries as “serious”, but he was released from a local hospital a short time later, and his publicist, Mark Steinberg, has since described the accident as “minor”. There are also reports that the car’s airbags did not deploy, which suggest a low speed collision. Windemere Mayor Gary Bruhn told CNN, “I think it’s nothing more than an accident.”

Police say alcohol did not play a role in the accident. An investigation is ongoing and reports say that charges could be filed against Woods.

The White Stripes to tour ‘Great White North’

Saturday, April 28, 2007

Grammy Award-winning rock band The White Stripes announced on Wednesday the Canadian leg of a tour in support of their soon-to-be-released album, Icky Thump. The tour, which would be the first cross-Canada excursion for The White Stripes, will see the band play dates in all provinces and territories.

The latest tour for The White Stripes will kick off June 1 in Nürburgring, Germany and will play several dates in Europe before starting off in Canada on June 24, in Burnaby, British Columbia. Canadian dates will include stops in northern locales such as Whitehorse, Yellowknife, and Iqaluit, on Baffin Island.

The White Stripes, made up of guitarist/singer Jack White and drummer Meg White, have developed a significant worldwide following with their blend of punk and blues, guitar-oriented rock. The band had expressed interest in playing cities they had not yet visited. “Having never done a full tour of Canada, Meg and I thought it was high time to go whole hog,” said Jack White on The White Stripes website. “We want to take this tour to the far reaches of the Canadian landscape. From the ocean to the permafrost.” The band’s website referred to Canada by its nickname, the ‘Great White North’.

The White Stripes have played to thousands in large outdoor festival settings, but will have to deal with different logistics while setting up in a northern location, such as Iqaluit.

Some 500 tickets for the Iqaluit show are to be sold, with an admission fee of approximately CA$40. Mike Bozzer, the city of Iqaluit’s economic development officer, told CBC News that talks have taken place with The White Stripes’ publicist regarding equipment, technicians, security and other such details. “It’s definitely going to have some economic impact, and they’ll come back home with positive stories of the city,” said Bozzer.

The band’s ten-year anniversary will be reached at a point during the Canadian leg of the tour, which will be commemorated. “Another special moment of this tour is the show which will occur in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia on July 14th, The White Stripes’ Tenth Anniversary,” said Jack White.

Following the Canadian dates, The White Stripes will embark on a tour in the United States, which will reach some 16 states they have not yet visited during their career, among other repeat locations.

New Zealand prisoners do nothing says National party

Sunday, November 5, 2006

Figures released by Simon Power, law and order spokesman for the National party, show that the New Zealand Labour led government lets 81% of all prisoners not do any work while in prison. Newspaper, Sunday News says that some Christchurch prisoners have been given a barbecue for good behavior.

Simon Power’s figures show that of the 7,612 prisoners only 19% (1,470) of them took part in Corrections Inmate Employment during 2006. But in 2005 it was at 23% and in 2004 it was at 26%. He says that the prisons with the least amount of inmates working are: Rolleston with 8.6%, Mount Eden with 8.7%, Rimutaka with 11%, Christchurch Women’s with 13.5% and Dunedin with 13.8%. Mr Power said: “These figures are an appalling indictment on this Government’s approach to prisoner rehabilitation and preparing them for release.”

“In May, Corrections Minister Damien O’Connor announced a strategy that he said would help in ‘significantly increasing the number of prisoners in work and training. But a week later this was shown to be nothing more than window dressing when the Budget increased funding for prisoner employment by a measly $336,000 – up 1%.”

“They have cut funding [on the Corrections Department] by 27% since 2001/02, from $46.5 million to $34 million.”

Mr Power blames the low work rate on the big prison construction budget of $490 million. “There would have been more than a miserable $336,000 extra to spend on effective rehabilitation and work schemes,” he said.

“[Mr O’Conner] seems happier to spend $11 million on landscaping four new prisons and allow prisoners to sit around playing Playstations and Xboxes on their flat-screen TVs than he is about helping them get better prepared for when they are released.”

“Prisoners should be doing meaningful work, training or study while they are in prisons, and I imagine the public would agree,” Mr Power added.

Mr Power, commenting on the barbecue, said: “These people are in prison because they were found to be in serious breach of the law. The victims of their crimes will be grossly offended by the idea that they are being rewarded for anything. This is the just the latest in a long line of incredibly bad decisions made by the Corrections Department over the past year and taxpayers have had enough.”

Bevan Hanlon, president for the Corrections Officers Association, said: “The Mobsters getting a BBQ was a “joke”. (Christchurch Prison) staff are reporting the smell of dope every day. Mobsters are threatening staff on a daily basis and there appears to be high cellphone use (mobile phones are banned in jail). So what happens? They are given a BBQ.”

Yahoo launches new Podcast Search

Wednesday, October 12, 2005

Yahoo! announced in its blog Sunday the beginning of a public beta test of its new Podcast search service. The new service makes it easier for people to find and listen to podcasts.

Podcasts are short downloadable audio shows, very similar to a radio show. Podcasts are most commonly downloaded to portable mp3 players such as the iPod for which they are named, but they can be listened to on a computer or burned to a CD as well.

“Yahoo Podcasts offers a comprehensive directory of podcast series and individual shows from across the web, complete with detailed search results, most popular and highest-rated lists, editorial picks, and a full collection of tools you can use. These community tools include ratings, reviews, and the ability to tag audio content, or view the tags that other people add,” Lee Ott wrote in the Yahoo blog.

Yahoo! is the first the large web company to offer a podcast search services. Podcast search is currently offered by several smaller websites including Podcast.net, Blinkx, and Odeo.

“This is something we’ve been working on for a while, it’s a great way for people to find, listen to, and consume podcasts as they grow more popular.” said Yahoo! spokesperson Meagan Busath.
