f22When the late British writer, art connoisseur and friend of the Queen, Sir Harold Acton, bequeathed his family’s Italian villa to New York University in 1994, the gift included a vast trove of art valued at hundreds of millions of pounds.

trpositanoLiving as I do in Venice, I have always thought it a shame that relatively few among its daily invasion of tourists make it as far as the next-door region of Emilia-Romagna. It easily matches the attractions of more celebrated Tuscany and Lombardy and offers temptingly affordable options for eating out and accommodation.

gr5Magnificent sandy beaches abound on the five-mile stretch between Skiathos Town and Koukounaries beach. The bus may be crowded but it’s great fun as the driver booms out the names of the beaches, too many to remember, along the southern shore.From a quaysiude café, you can enjoy the bustle of round-the-island boats, beach taxis and trips to the nearby island of Tsougrias with its deserted olive oil factory – and even more sandy beaches.

Fashion and beauty:How to master the folk trend

Author: Administrator

22/05/2015

f10Say the dreaded words ‘festival fashion’ and images of perfectly sensible females going riotous in fields wearing fringing, feathers et al springs to mind. Ignore the frippery Glastonbury brings though and see folk as a trend that can outlast wet weekends in Britain’s best parks; a trend that, dare we say it, can look chic when worn with a little foresight and consideration.

Foods That Make You Look Younger-New life for old cuisines

chinafood8Hotel waiter delivering room service, breakfast in foregroundYou can head off a lot of your most common beauty concerns simply by downing the right foods. That's right—eating well not only does wonders for your waistline and bolsters your immune system but can also provide some very real get-gorg benefits, such as smoothing wrinkles, giving hair a glossy shine and strengthening flimsy nails. "Your diet directly affects your day-to-day appearance and plays a significant role in how well you age," says Joshua Zeichner, MD. The smart approach, Dr. Zeichner says, is to create a plan that includes what he calls "the building blocks of healthy skin and hair"—nutrients, minerals and fatty acids—as well as antioxidants to protect your body from damaging environmental stresses. Get ready to nab some beauty-boosting perks by tossing these essential face-saving edibles into your grocery cart.What to eat to keep young and beautiful and among those products is Feta cheese is packed full of vitamin B12, which speeds up the replacement of dead skin cells. cfood1Central Asian restaurants have made a place for themselves in Beijing's Russian district, and diners are licking their lips, Erik Nilsson reports. Erik Nilsson The old Soviet Union is reuniting in Beijing - for dinner. At least its cuisine is. Central Asian fare has taken a central place at the table in the Yabaolu neighborhood's dining scene, as the city's "Russiatown" transforms into "Beijing-istan".Natives of the "stans" are making culinary inroads into China's capital as the New Silk Road Economic Belt develops, while fewer Russian traders are frequenting the declining Yabaolu fur market that spurred the original development of the surrounding Slavic enclave.This means compote, a juice of mixed fruits, is diluting volumes of vodka, as the tides of the boiled dried-fruit juice rise and the hard-drinking part of town dries up. (Actually, many of the area's Central Asian eateries are halal, but allow you to bring your own booze.) There's more yogurt and less mayonnaise. More kebabs and fewer cutlets. More plov (Central Asia's rice staple) and fewer potatoes.These eateries dot the Shenlu dining street behind the fur market, sprinkled among restaurants serving sustenance from China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, Mongolia,Greece,Turkey and Italy.food7People will choose larger portions of food if they are labeled as being "healthier," even if they have the same number of calories, according to a new study."People think (healthier food) is lower in calories," said Pierre Chandon, a marketing professor at the INSEAD Social Science Research Center in France, and they "tend to consume more of it." That misconception can lead to people eating larger portion sizes of so-called healthy foods, and therefore more calories."Foods are marketed as being healthier for a reason, because food producers believe, and they correctly believe, that those labels will influence us to eat their products and perhaps eat more of their products,"
