purple polo shirts for women Outlet prices up to stores

While the Outlets of Little Rock is expected to draw 120,000 shoppers during its opening weekend, the project developer was hesitant Tuesday about putting a name on what constitutes an “outlet” and how much of a price break shoppers could expect to receive compared with the same stores that offer merchandise at suggested retail prices.

Michael Barelli, vice president of Boston based New England Development the company developing the Outlets of Little Rock and similar projects mostly in the Northeast and East Coast told the downtown Rotary Club 99 that stores/tenants were under contract to offer merchandise at a discounted price.

Later, he said he “misspoke.” He said New England expects stores to offer prices consistent with those offered at the retailers’ other outlet stores in similar centers elsewhere in the country.

“Our leases with tenants have that language in them,” he later said about discounting prices, “but not all agree.” He said decisions regarding pricing is up to the individual retailers. As far as offering “seconds,” or retail items altered through minor fault of manufacture, that’s also left up to the tenants, he said.

The Outlets of Little Rock, at 325,000 square feet, opens to the public Friday at the intersection of Interstates 30 and 430 on a site developer Tommy Hodges has been working on since he bought the 176 acre tract for the Gateway Town Center in 2001.

The outlet mall, which began construction in June 2014, will have 70 retailers with space available for a handful more. The breakdown in retail offerings: 74 percent apparel and shoes, 13 percent accessories, 5 percent homewares, 5 percent beauty and another 3 percent miscellaneous, which is mostly food, Barelli said.

For a few stores such as Restoration Hardware Outlet, Under Armour Outlet, Brooks Brothers Outlet and VF Outlet their spot at the Outlets of Little Rock marks their Arkansas debut. A number of Arkansas based businesses are joining the outlet craze, as well. They include Smyly’s Memorabilia, with framed Hollywood and sports memorabilia items; Uniq, with home decor and women’s clothes among other items; Jonesboro based Gearhead Outfitters and Corky’s Shoes; Sweet candy and gifts; TCBY; and Sophitique from Searcy.

Hodges said Outlets of Little Rock should generate up to $100 million in annual retail sales, which translates to $6.5 million in state sales taxes, about $1 million in county taxes and $1.5 million in city taxes. The construction phase supported 1,000 jobs. Once open, the center will employ about 800 1,000 full and part time workers.

Over New England’s 37 years in the business,
polo ralph laurne Outlet prices up to stores
the development company has built 26 million square feet of retail space the equivalent of 47 Park Plaza malls, Barelli said. Last year, New England opened two outlet malls: Palm Beach Outlets in Florida and Asheville Outlets in North Carolina, which the developer converted from an existing mall to an outlet center. Also in the works are outlet malls in Des Moines, Iowa; Clarksburg, Md.; and Ann Arbor, Mich.

Barelli said the company’s recent push into outlet mall development has been driven by tenants who desire to open outlet stores in contrast to full price shops. Over the last five to 10 years, retailers also have been more willing to locate their outlet stores closer to metropolitan areas, he said. The Outlets of Little Rock, according to Hodges, is 12 minutes from downtown.

“Previously, outlet centers were out in the hinterlands, they were 40 miles from major cities,” Barelli said. The dynamic has changed, he said. Now they’re more willing to compete with their own full price department stores. And more retailers are willing to open outlet stores.

So why Little Rock? There are 1.1 million people more than 40 percent of the state’s population living within 60 miles of Outlets of Little Rock. The closest outlet mall to Little Rock is in Branson, Barelli said.

“It’s not convenient. It’s not an everyday shopping option,” he said of the competition. Some 95,000 cars pass the Little Rock center daily on Interstate 30, he added.

“Even if they’re not shopping with us, they’re passing our center, seeing our sign,” Barelli said.

What also attracted New England was Bass Pro Shops, which draws about 2 million visitors a year from nearly all 50 states. Barelli said Bass Pro Shops reported the Little Rock opening as its best of seven in 2013. The outdoor shop draws about half its customers from a 50 mile radius or farther.

“It brings customers that might not otherwise come and shop at the outlets and other tenants around it,” Barelli said.

Hodges, a planning expert who later became a residential and commercial developer, established infrastructure for The Grove adjacent to the outlet mall. He’s already signed one developer for the The Grove, which he hopes to fill with hotels and restaurants. He said Tuesday that he was working on several other deals for that area.

Shoppers at Maryland’s newest factory outlet center, opening this August in Hagerstown, will find dozens of familiar, nationally known brands, among them Gap, Polo Ralph Lauren, Jones New York, Tommy Hilfiger, J. Crew and Nike.

The developer, Baltimore based Prime Retail Inc., plans to announce leases with about 45 merchants today during a preview tour of the village style Prime Outlets at Hagerstown, which is under construction. The center, at the northwest corner of Interstate 70 and Route 65 in Washington County, will open Aug. 7.

The 218,000 square foot first phase will house about 60 stores, an enclosed food court, a playground and a customer service center, all designed around landscaped pedestrian walkways and courtyards.

Prime Retail officials expect the first phase to open at least 90 percent occupied, with merchants selling factory direct apparel, housewares, electronics, shoes, gifts and accessories, typically at 25 percent to 30 percent off regular retail prices.

“We have high expectations on this particular site,” William H. Carpenter Jr., Prime Retail’s president and chief operating officer, said yesterday. “We believe we have a phenomenal mix that will draw traffic. Brands are what people can relate to.”

Initially, Prime expects 3 million shoppers and sales of $40 million to $60 million a year. The center will bring in 400 jobs for Hagerstown, with the potential for another 400. For the state, the center should initially generate sales tax revenue of between $2 million and $3 million.

Two additional phases of development including one under construction would bring the center to more than 400,000 square feet with 120 stores. Tenants have committed to about two thirds of the 100,000 square foot second section, which is expected to open in time for the holiday rush in November with 25 to 30 stores and a stronger emphasis on housewares. The timing of the third phase, 100,000 square feet and 25 to 30 stores, depends on leasing.

The center should live up to developers’ expectations, said David Fick, senior financial analyst with Legg Mason Wood Walker Inc. in Baltimore. For Prime Retail, a real estate investment trust that became the world’s largest outlet owner and operator by acquiring Horizon Group Inc. last week, the center will be the 50th in a portfolio with properties in 26 states.

‘Better tenant list’

“This should be one of the better centers they’ve ever opened,” Fick said. “It’s opening with a better tenant list than any center they’ve opened in the past.”

Tenants that typically help secure such centers’ success include Brooks Brothers, Tommy Hilfiger, Nike and Polo, Fick said, and all of those have signed on for the Hagerstown center’s first phase. It’s more typical for top outlet center tenants to wait to see whether a center will be successful before making a decision, he said.

“It will be a very solid outlet center,” with leading designers drawing consumers, said Mark A. Millman, president of Millman Search Group Inc., a retail consultant and placement company in Lutherville. “Prime is now the player in the industry, and this is an area of the country where there hasn’t been a lot of [outlet] development. It’s in close proximity to Baltimore and Washington.”

It should continue to attract tenants, he said, because many are looking to expand while fewer outlet centers are coming on line. However, Millman said, he believes the developers have overestimated the number of shoppers the center will draw. Those centers, including the 14 year old Blue Ridge Outlet Center, “will significantly feel the effects of Prime’s project,” Millman said. Keeping centers open, rather than enclosed, can cut operating costs and ultimately reduce prices, Carpenter said. Pedestrian walkways and amenities such as food courts make the centers more convenient, he said.

“There’s no reason a consumer at an outlet center should not have all the amenities you can get at a traditional shopping center,” Carpenter said.

A division of Prime Retail will run one of the center’s stores, Designer Connection, which sells high end men’s and women’s fashion brands such as Versace and Fendi typically manufacturers that do not have their own outlet stores. It’s a new concept for Prime, which has opened four such stores around the country.

Other outlet retailers include G. H. Bass, Britches Great Outdoors Factory Store, Carter’s Childrenswear, Coach, Cosmetic Center Outlet, Dress Barn, Fuller Brush Factory Outlet, London Fog, Nine West Outlet, OshKosh B’Gosh, Rack Room Shoes, Samsonite Company Store and Van Heusen Direct.

Prospective tenants for the second phase include Disney, Calvin Klein, Fila, Eddie Bauer, Bugle Boy and Sunbeam.

marco polo cathay pacific Outgrown clothes spur Easter dress giveaway

long sleeve polos for women Outgrown clothes spur Easter dress giveaway

Clothing racks held dresses of organza and tulle and poly satin feminine materials wholly compatible with girlish grit and gumption.

At least that’s how Eleanor Flora Smalley sees it. She’s the mother of Ele, who once wore many of the dresses displayed. Both Ele and her mother carry the first name of a famously strong first lady.

“Girls should not only feel powerful but pretty,” Eleanor Smalley said. “We want them to be strong and make a difference and we can help them recognize that they are all beautiful and unique.”

The Radford Public Library was the setting Saturday of an Easter dress giveaway that was the brainchild of Ele and her aunt, Bethany Flora. They teamed up with Flora’s church, the comparatively new Community Life Church in Pulaski County, to hold the event.

Shantessa Knutson and her daughter, Maggie, 8, found a white, sequined dress for Maggie.

“It’s beautiful, gorgeous,” Knutson said. “It looks like a prom dress.”

Knutson said the family could not have afforded to buy a nice Easter dress for Maggie. Saturday’s giveaway was “absolutely wonderful,” she said.

Jessica Wade came with daughter Sophie, 14 months, and found for her a pinkish polka dot dress and pink shoes. She also found dresses for two daughters who stayed home in Dublin on Saturday.

The older girls are autistic, Wade said, and the family faces expenses that would otherwise preclude the purchase of Easter dresses.

At noon, the racks held about 300 dresses of varied sizes, including more than 250 donated by Ele and Smalley and Smalley’s husband, Scott. The family lives in Berryville.

Smalley said she and Scott prayed for 10 years to have a child and that after Ele was born, her mother was reluctant to part with Ele’s clothes as she outgrew them.

“Because I so loved every memory of every minute of seeing her in every dress,” Smalley said.

“It’s not that I’m a hoarder. I could just look at the dresses and see Ele in them,” Smalley said.

But Ele eventually weighed in, Smalley said, saying, “Mom, seriously, get a grip.'”

Smalley said surrendering the dresses Saturday was a joyful experience.

“It’s perfect, really. All my memories are still there and now Ele is creating them for other people,” Smalley said.

People like Helen Greene, 34, who came with daughter, Natalie, 5. Greene embraced Bethany Flora on Saturday and then wiped away tears.

Greene said she wants to provide good memories for Natalie, her son and her working husband.

She said she has no health insurance and cannot afford an endoscopy, a procedure she said might help determine the source of what she described as health problems.

ralph lauren polo perfume out second period pushes Edmonton Oil Kings past Lethbridge Hurricanes

uc berkeley water polo out second period pushes Edmonton Oil Kings past Lethbridge Hurricanes

The Edmonton Oil Kings saved their best for last, or at least second last.

Playing their penultimate home game of their Western Hockey League season, the Oil Kings gave fans a glimpse into the future with a convincing 5 1 win over the Lethbridge Hurricanes at Rogers Place on Tuesday.

think you see the emergence of, really, our future, said Oil Kings head coach Steve Hamilton. of our young offensive guys like David Kope, who been a positive story this season. If you would have asked him in August what his plans were for the season, I don think he had his plans set on Edmonton in all honestly.

see him come to camp hungry to make the team and the development that gone on from there, I think that a real positive story. Oil Kings will miss the WHL playoff for the second consecutive year, but the promise showed in the second half of the season suggests the skid will likely end next season.

Edmonton young roster has come of age this season, playing in situations they likely would not get an opportunity to play on an older, more experienced team. They have just three players on the roster older than 18 and only two not eligible to come back next season.

was good to get a couple of power play goals, Kope said. was really good for the young guys and we excited for next year, for sure. Fix Wolansky led the way for the Oil Kings against the Hurricanes with a goal and three assists. Colton Kehler, Nick Bowman, Conner McDonald and Tomas Soustal also scored for Edmonton in one of their most convincing wins of the season. Kobe Mohr had two assists, while Josh Dechaine made 26 saves.

Jadon Joseph scored the lone goal for the Hurricanes and Logan Flodell made 30 saves.

The Hurricanes, who have clinched a playoff spot by finishing second in the Central Division standings, were the better team out of the gate, out shooting the Oil Kings 9 1 at one point in the period.

Joseph gave Lethbridge the lead, 5:48 into the game, getting a rebound in font and sweeping it past Dechaine.

The Oil Kings battled back in the later half of the period and had a couple of good opportunities to tie the game. The shots finished 12 11 for the Hurricanes in the period.

The Oil Kings maintained their momentum in the second and exploded for five goals, taking control of the contest.

didn have the greatest start, coming into the intermission after the first period, we knew what we had to do to be better, Fix Wolansky said. came out in that second period and got fortunate with a couple of power plays and got ahead that way and played a solid five on five game the rest of the game. tied the game on the power play, two minutes into the period, one timing a shot from the left faceoff circle in past Flodell.

Bowman scored just over five minutes later, taking a drop pass from Davis Murray and wiring a shot over the Flodell shoulder.

McDonald made it 3 1 on a two man advantage, ripping a shot from the point past Flodell, who didn see the puck until it was already behind him.

Soustal increased the lead to 4 1, scoring on the remaining penalty, taking a pass from Brett Kemp in front of the net and lifting a backhand over Flodell.

Fix Wolansky scored the Oil Kings fifth goal with 1:12 to go in the period. Edmonton leading scorer picked up his 31st goal of the year, stepping into a shot after Kope had been stopped by Flodell on a drive to the net.

came out a little slow, but we definitely recovered after that, we came out flying in the second, Dechaine said. scoring five goals make the job easier on me, so it was nice to really have that big lead. It been a while since we had one of those, so we were just able to lock it down.

polo shirts women Out of the Gang

womens ralph lauren polo shirts Out of the Gang

The Justice Department estimates that more than 650 thousand young people are involved in gangs, and those gang members committed more than three thousand homicides in 1995. Politicians and popular culture often paint gang members as irretrievable outlaws who will only leave the gang in handcuffs or a body bag. But experts say most gang members eventually go straight. Minnesota Public Radio’s John Biewen reports.

Reverend Miller goes into several St. Paul high schools every week; he teaches a voluntary, non credit course exclusively to black teens. The course covers various aspects of African American life, past and present. but Miller spends several sessions talking about street gangs. One study estimates 47 percent of the nation’s youth gang members are black; 43 percent are Latino. six percent Asian and four percent white. Miller stresses most black students are not involved in gangs or crime. but he hopes to reach a few who are. and alter the image of gangs among as many kids as possible.

Miller’s discussions on gang culture are especially lively at the Area Learning Center. an alternative high school for kids who’ve been kicked out of other schools because of truancy or discipline problems. Several of the twenty or so students in Miller’s class are admitted gang members. Miller tells them he understands the attractiveness of gangs for young blacks who have troubled families, few recreational choices. and deep doubts that education will guarantee a good job in what they see as a hostile white society.

Michael: “I said, what about the young ones that want some money, their parents ain’t got it but they ain’t old enough to work no job, though. Their momma can’t afford to put a pair of Nike shoes and a pair of something on em, you know what I’m saying?” Miller: “Answer this. What put the thought in that young person’s mind that they needed a pair of Nikes?” Michael: “The first time they seen that commercial.” (Miller slams hand on board and screams) “That’s what I’m talking about!!” Michael: “So what you saying, stop watching TV?” Miller: “No, no, no, listen! Understand who’s playing, and understand who’s being played!”

In other words, though most young gang members eventually graduate to normal lives. the number of kids going through that rite of passage is growing. The Justice Department says gang membership has grown by more than a hundred thousand since 1993. Some experts call for more social spending and job programs for young people; others say it’s up to families and communities to rein in problem kids and teach better values. Michael, the semi retired Gangster Disciple in St. Paul,

says he grew up in a loving family with high expectations. but even as a small child he saw that gangsters had special status in his school and neighborhood.

But earlier this month, Prince abandoned any efforts at reinstatement after reaching a six figure settlement with the church that bars him from trying to return.

far as Rev. Prince is concerned, his attorney Andrew J. Levin said last week, Zion offers him a six figure settlement, it validates his contention that they breached his employment contract. number one goal was to remain as pastor of Zion. But the judge precluded him from doing that.

Ronald Harper, the chair of Zion board of trustees, said the March 6 settlement for an undisclosed amount does not represent an admission of wrongdoing.

was a settlement, so neither party was found right or wrong, Harper said. not supposed to be talking about a settled case. But on behalf of the board of trustees, we are very happy to move on so that the church can begin to seek a new pastor.

Prince, 58, joined Zion in January 2012. When he arrived, he was known as Rev. A. Carl Prince. He began calling himself Adolphus C. Prince after news of his dismissal from Zion made headlines across the country.

Prince arrived in Philadelphia after a stormy relationship with his former church in Virginia. Not long after his arrival at the North Philadelphia church made famous by the late Rev. Leon H. Sullivan, the iconic civil rights and international human rights leader who led Zion for 38 years Prince had a falling out with members of his new church, who voted to terminate him first in March 2014, and again in July 2014 and January 2016 .

Prior to the second vote to dismiss Prince, a deacons’ letter recommending his firing included allegations that the pastor had behaved like a “dictator,” closed off three church offices for his exclusive use, and had spent large sums to renovate his main office.

The critics also said he engineered changing the name of the Zion Community Center, an annex of the church, to the Leon Sullivan Center. He then began to use a United Way logo on the center’s web site to appeal for donations. A United Way spokeswoman said the church did not have permission to use the logo.

But what upset most people were the events of Saturday, June 21, 2014, when Prince brought two armed guards with him to a special meeting called to discuss his future. The following month, the church voted 221 166 to oust him.

A majority of the members voted to oust him each time a vote was taken. However, after each vote, either Prince or his supporters challenged the legality of the process. After the March 22, 2014 vote, Prince and his supporters claimed the vote was illegal because the proper church officials had not called the meeting.

After the July 2014 vote, Prince and his supporters argued that the church bylaws required 90 days notice to the membership before a vote to fire a pastor.

Fade In a mix of things that keep Sally Stojespal occupied in her time with Stark Industries. It’s not all super technology; she’s still bootstrapping herself up with various experiments and assignments on the practical side of things. The theory of blowing things up she gets from Columbia and some SHIELD training, actually blowing things up gets to happen in the place where it happens most.

Or in this case, looking over results from the latest tests and experiments she’d been working on. It does let her indulge the more affluent side of her education, namely sipping tea and letting Debussy play on the room’s entertainment system. ‘Badassium’ was certainly a very Stark name, but it’s something she’s still learning the properties of trying to find out why it won’t hold a sustained repulsor field for more than about sixty to sixty five seconds before overloading.

Not that she expects to find an answer; it had eluded Howard Stark for decades and had eventually been bypassed by Tony Stark for repulsor thrusters. Well she’ll at least prove that it doesn’t work after all. Again.

A cheerful voice breaks through the piano, as SIRIN quite literally chimes in. “Reminder! Get up to Mr. Stark’s room, your appointment time is almost here!” A verbal tic later, the AI adds something helpful. “At least he’s awake this time.”

“Thank you SIRIN.” She misses JARVIS’s british tones, but has a soft spot for the AI its history and creation with the cutting edge aircraft he’d built to take on Hydra backed opponents over Sokovia is something that she’ll never be thankful enough for other things. Setting aside the tea and paperwork, she reaches down to buckle on her shoes. “Please let Mr. Stark know I will be up momentarily, too.”

Okay. SHIELD business. in slacks, her driving shoes, and a Stark Racing polo shirt with her hair back in the everpresent hairband. Well, she doesn’t always have to look the part of a scary SHIELD agent. Time to meet the boss!

Mister Stark knows, weather Mister Stark cares is always up in the air.

The inventor himself sits in the room. One of his multitude of labs. His feet up on a desk, a drink that looks green and too healthy for words in one hand as he stares at a holoscreen infront of him. On it is a picture of Genosha, from a Satalite system of some sort.

He doesn’t even really look up when the elevator dings. Just smirks slightly.

He calls as he waves a hand, the picture spinning to zoom in on top of one of the mountains and a geothermal plant there.

this time she was good. NOT barging in! Sally makes her way from the elevator through the lab, glancing around at whatever might be on his mind. It’s almost a game she plays, a bit like looking at a half completed Escher drawing and trying to figure out whether it should be assembled with allen screws, or welded let alone what it’s suppose to be in the first place. Case in point that green drink. Is he doing vegetable juicing?

“Mr. Stark? Sorry to interrupt, sir.” Like a good bunny, she’ll make her way over to where he’s at, eyes finally settling on the picture of what looks like some sort of volcanic system. Maybe? It’s mountainous, and mechanical. “A, ah Word! “Geo thermal structure? Is this something new you are working on?” She adds a bit of a smirk to the last, wondering where it might be.

“May I?” Always the student, she’ll ask before settling in on a spare chair. “So.” She taps one toe against the floor for a moment trying to wonder just where to approach this from, and how to frame her question. Just ask, she decides. “Why? The trip to Genosha, sir. I admit I know little about the situation, though I was given some information since. But, why did you suddenly just Eyebrows furrow, not condemning just confused.

“I admit I ask as a SHIELD agent, I was assigned to find out why. Agent Coulson is in country right now, actually, and ah Ahem. “I was told to tell you he is ‘Supernanny mad.’ Especially with your choice of companions. I did speak to Sloane, though; she told me some of what happened.” What she could, anyway, which was mostly ‘suddenly there was tony and I blinked and I was in a jet with all these other people.’

no, this is something they had on Genosha. One of the mad mutants there, a really bad one, happened to try to turn it into a volcano and blow up the capitol. So I helped stop him.” Stark smirks slightly. “Totally worth it just for the scowl on Summer’s face. But I was just trying to figure out how the bastard did it. I think he was connected to the island somehow but shrugs.

“So many variables.” He waves a hand and the holoscreen dissipears before he spins back towards Sally and there is a look there for a moment that she doesn’t remember ever seeing on her employers face.

Eyes glittering, face a smile that doesn’t quite reach his gaze. Its gone an instant later as he stands with a slap of palms against his thighs. “Right. I bet he was. But waves his hand again and a new screen comes up. This one full of reports. Weapons reports. Of Stark Weapons bought and sold to Genosha over the years. Decades worth of them.

He shakes his head a moment. “Now I shouldn’t have brought Kamala or Sloane but did. So he can come here himself to yell at me about if he wants.”

right, the ersatz leader of the X men,

at least as far as their operations head might be. If they have such an organization; the size of their group is not nearly so large as a single side branch of SHIELD. Well organizations work better than others, at that scale, Sally thinks. She can’t help the grin on her face when Stark admits to his reasons, as well as his accomplishment, and nods. “Absolutely that would be a bad one, yes. And Perhaps, something like how Sloane can control water?”

Inhumans, mutants, enhanced humans, metahumans, Wakandans, aliens, gods. Sometimes Tony’s right they ARE all cheating. Even if magic may only be sufficiently advanced technology, said technology can be downright mystifying when you try to examine it. “Variables indeed,” she mutters in agreement.

And then there is a shocked face, as Sally sits suddenly straighter as if for a moment she’s the target of that anger from a teacher, before it disappears. The screen of reports and documents appears, and she’ll reach out to draw the hologram stack over to her, if he lets her. This is more than just what Sloane knew about. This wasn’t just someone abusing some of Tony’s stolen hardware, this did you discover such things,” she asks, breath tight. It’s almost a whisper, flipping through the records. None of them look Stark’s own letterhead, but side groups, it seems. Covert transactions, the kinds of things she’d seen before working with SHIELD a specific terrorist group in particular. “This, these things is as if they had everything except the reactor technology and your suit designs.”

And most of it is weaponry. Yes, she was much younger when Stark had rescinded his previous corporate ways, but she’d still heard the news. It was hard not to, being the child of a military officer. The very thing that he’d promised to give up.

She can’t help a dark chuckle. “After this I suppose I would be ‘Supernanny mad’ as well. And, that is a little bit, but he was also concerned about the participation of Mr. Barnes and Dr. Foster, as well as Sloane and ”

Then she realizes just what name he’d said and it hits like a brick to the forehead. “Kamala?!”

Maximoff twins. Magnetos kids.” The inventor replies with a sigh and a shake of his head. “And yes. I verified everything before I went charging off like I do.” He swipes up his drink again, downing a long pull off it before he frowns towards her. “No they had more than that. Damn bastards reversed engineered almost everything I built and used it to springboard their tech decades ahead of everyone else. Harnesed slaved mutants with tech powers to help, they have full power armor. Hover cars. Giant robots, stable beam weapons,” He glances back towards the reports. “All because I didn’t know about it till now.”

A smirk at that. “So you see why I took Bucky and Jane.” A long pause. “Alright so they just showed up when I was leaving and I shoved them on the plane with Steve and I. Same with Sloane and Kamala. Who He glances back towards Sally. ” indeed on the plane. But she’s fine so don’t worry about it.”

twins? Magneto’s children? That’s a surprise, and she lets it show on her face. “Absolutely I see why you did what you did, but. Bozhe moy. Krasyvyy khvost Khoro.” She can’t help the not quite double blasphemy when Stark explains the situation in Genosha, espeically when he mentions the kinds of hardware that his work led to. Especially one that’s particularly personal. “Nekul’turni zlodiyi, these thieves. They completed flying cars.”

She’s not quite ‘Rusalka mad,’ but it’s still palpable. “I would have done the same in your shoes, sir. Especially that work, all of my effort. Suddenly, to be used like that. Though understand, as well, that this ‘Magneto’ himself appeared and ah the worst of the casualties.” The question of whether it was all a setup now, starting with his children it would not matter.

If it were her mother, or anyone else, they would have gone too. Sometimes a setup, an ambush,

needs to be tripped anyways knowing it is coming certainly makes it more survivable.

Hughes Justice Complex are being treated for the creepy crawlers. NJ Transit workers also told The Trentonian this week that the city buses are infested with bedbugs and provided a couple photos to prove their claim.
