Met Gala 2019 – The Best Costumes On The Red Carpet!

For this 2019 edition, Met Gala’s costume exhibition was entitled; Camp: Notes On Fashion. But why such a name? The theme was actually inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay, defining camp as the love of the unnatural… love for exaggeration! And we surely did have a whole load of exaggeration on the red carpet. Here are those who managed to keep up the trend while becoming the stars amongst the “galactic” show!

Met Gala 2019 – The Best Costumes On The Red Carpet!

Lady Gaga – When One Dress Is Too Mainstream!

The Camp theme was created for Lady Gaga! She didn’t resort to any meat dress this time… Mother Monster preferred being the extra in extravagant with four Brandon Maxwell dresses! She entered Met Gala with a giant Barbie-pink gown with five valets holding onto the trailing draperies. Just where everyone is supposed to pose for the pics, she revealed a stunning black strapless gown with a black umbrella. Third time was a charm, since she appeared in another barbie-pink slip dress and finally, Lady Gaga dropped the covers for some chic lingerie with sparkly tights. That’s quite a way to mark a presence!

What Can a Freelance SEO Expert do for Your Business?

Many individuals believe that getting a website designed and uploaded is enough to increase their business and bring in more orders for their services or products. However, this is definitely not the case, because unless you’re website shows up within the top results of the important search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo, the site is going to be practically invisible and nobody will be able to find it when they type in a search query related to your business activities. To get your site up towards the top of the rankings you will need to optimise it for the search engines.

The Impact On Internet Freedom Of Major Copyright Changes

When this legislation comes into action, it will be the largest change to internet regulations since the implementation of GDPR or the General Data Protection Regulation.

The copyright changes that have been passed are best known for the most controversial clauses in them. These are articles 11 and 13 which have created a major battle between the corporate lobbyists, freedom of expression groups and online activities.

Under the new legislation, the tech companies will be more liable for any copyright infringements on their platforms.

In the August edition of 2004 of the GreatLife magazine, it gave a report on that Duke University Medical Center researchers based in Durham, N.C studied effects relating to stress on the heart in clinical trials which monitored how the heart reacted to common everyday events.

In the study, it was discovered that heightened feelings of sadness, anger, and stress in a person, the less their hearts were capable of responding effectively. It appeared that the pressure that was exerted on this organ caused by continual emotional downs and ups of stress had caused this muscle to stretch over and beyond its usual capacity in order to return to normal.
