PUSSIES GALORE: THE WOMAN WITH A THOUSAND CATS

PUSSIES GALORE: THE WOMAN WITH A THOUSAND CATS 

Friday 18th September, 8:00pm – 9.00pm

Channel 5

Katie Glazier

There are over 9 millions cats in our UK homes, with most owners living with a single feline friend, however for someone just isn’t enough. In this extraordinary one hour programme we meet some of the most fanatical kitty lovers who have taken their love one step further. We meet a woman who can’t stop taking local strays in, a man with a cat tattoo obsession, we get an insight into the world of cat competitions and we visit a unique establishment that allows you to enjoy your food whilst stroking a pussy.

 

Lynea Lattanzio is the embodiment of a crazy cat lady, she has over 1000 cats on her premises and is still unable to say no to more. What started off as company for the divorced retiree, has now spiralled into taking over her whole existence.

 

Lynea was refused a cat as a child and has been working hard since, making up for lost time. We visit her Californian home and see her surrounded by her furry family, witnessing just how she manages to keep things ticking. With a thousand cats on the property is it all getting too much for Lynea or will she always be thinking of the many more roaming the streets?

 

From Crazy Cat Lady to Crazy Cat Man, we meet pussy magnet Andy Richards who has spent the last 20 years of his life dedicating his time to helping cats. Andy, the manager of the East Lancashire Cats charity store and owner of 18 of his own, has now racked up 40 cat related tattoos! We join Andy as he embarks upon his latest design, as he goes under the needle for two more tatts. Will Andy’s cat inking obsession come to an end or will he run out of space first?

 

Later in the episode we meet up with some UK based cat crazies as we discover the world of the Cat Competition. We follow Sue Miller from Devon, a self admitted cat obsessive, who is taking seven of her eighteen cats to the West of England and South Wales Cat Society Show in hope of adding to her vast collection of ribbons and rosettes. We see the preparation, the judging and the results and find out just how much her little superstars winning means to her. Will the pressures of the competition get too much for Sue or will see come away with more accolades?

 

In the final instalment of the hour we enter a unique establishment that allows people to eat their lunch and drink a coffee surrounded by their favourite feline. We meet Katie Jane Glazier who has opened up Newcastle’s first of its kind, the Cat Café called Mog on the Tyne! In a café influenced by its phenomenon success in Japan, you can now eat your lunch at the same time as stroking a pussy. Will Katie’s unique business venture be a roaring success or will it be doomed to failure?

Very sad to hear about the death of TV psychic Colin Fry who I worked with at Living TV on Most Haunted & 6ixth Sense

I worked with Colin Fry for over 5 years launching his programmes on Living TV.

One very proud moment was landing a five page feature in The coolest magazine of the day The Face back in the early noughties

The Face 1The Face 2The Face 3The Face 5

Colin Fry, who has died aged 53, was a self-proclaimed medium who relayed messages from “the dead” to audiences in Australia, New Zealand, Norway and Japan; on British satellite television he featured in such “paranormal reality” shows as Most Haunted and 6ixth Sense.

Viewers hoping for dire warnings from beyond the grave would be disappointed. A warm and charismatic performer, Fry’s stage pronouncements tended towards the prosaic. Bereaved grandchildren were instructed to tidy their rooms; dead parents reassured their offspring that the end had been relatively peaceful.

Sceptics countered that Fry’s main talent lay in basic “cold reading” techniques – the art of analysing body language in order to make high-probability guesses about a person. In 1992 Fry was caught out at a seance when the lights were turned on unexpectedly, revealing that he was still holding a “spirit trumpet” that was meant to be suspended in mid-air. Fry later put the incident down to his relative inexperience at the time. He also denied any suggestions of exploitation, pointing to his training as a bereavement counsellor. Members of his audience were encouraged to seek professional help if Fry felt they were struggling to cope with their loss.

Though he had initially refused to appear on television on the grounds that most programmes made fun of spiritualism, Fry gave in when he was approached by producers at the age of 40. The format of the shows, however, tended once again towards the banal. A message broadcast before 6ixth Sense admitted that “differing opinions exist as to the true nature of clairvoyance and clairaudience”. None the less, the subject has proved adaptable to the small screen. Most Haunted completed its 17th series in 2015.

Colin Fry was born on May 19 1962 in Haywards Heath, West Sussex. His mother, Margaret, a student nurse, had intended to remain at home after the birth but suffered from post-partum depression and decided that work would be beneficial. Colin was raised in large part by his maternal grandmother, Lilian, with whom he shared a close – he would say psychic – bond.

From an early age, Colin became aware of an ability to perceive things that other members of his family could not. A vision of an old man – “like a taller, slightly thinner version of [Doctor Who] William Hartnell” – at the foot of his bed was a first glimpse of “Magnus”, who would become Fry’s proclaimed “spirit guide” in adulthood. Aged four, Colin announced to the table at teatime that “Old Nanny”, his great-grandmother, had died. A telegram to that effect arrived the next day.

After leaving school at 16 without any qualifications, Fry worked in the retail industry while giving demonstrations at spiritualist churches. But it was not until his stepbrother, Michael, died of Aids in 1996 that he resolved to become a full-time medium. Fry had nursed Michael for many years, and saw a chance to keep the relationship intact. “But he’s very clever,” he explained in 2003: “He’ll often pass messages to me through other mediums.”

Fry went on to become a reverend of the Spiritualist Church, and wrote several books on spiritual and mental well-being. A memoir, The Happy Medium, was published in 2012. The title seemed to contradict a life that had had its share of physical hardship. He became partially deaf aged 23 and relied on hearing aids in later years. Last April he was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer.

A heavy smoker, he recalled an earlier encounter with a fellow spiritualist, who disapproved: “This old love said to me: ‘That’ll kill you, you know.’ I replied: ‘My love, do you honestly think that bothers me? I know where I’m going.’”

Colin Fry is survived by his civil partner, Mikey.

Colin Fry, born May 19 1962, died August 25 2015 – The Daily Telegraph

FINALLY, THE ORGANIC APPROACH TO FACELIFTS THAT WE HAVE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR

FINALLY, THE ORGANIC APPROACH TO FACELIFTS

THAT WE HAVE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR

Pioneering technique FAMI™ is storming the world

of plastic surgery

  • World-renowned surgeon Dr Roger Amar specialises in facelifts without surgery
  • Dr. Amar’s FAMI technique has provided rare longevity in rejuvenation procedures through the use of injected stem cells into the core of a patient’s muscle
  • The procedure has been described as ‘state-of-the-art’ in cosmetic surgery
  • FAMI can be accomplished without the need of a scalpel, rejuvenating all the structures of the face: bone, muscles and skin without any visible scars
  • The outpatient three hour procedure can last for virtually indefinitely

 

As we reach a certain age, a youthful appearance creeps up higher on our beauty wish list. However, not everyone has the inclination to go under the surgeon’s knife. But now there is an alternative – Facial Autologous Muscular Injection (FAMI™) – which has transformed the way physicians approach non-invasive facial rejuvenation by offering a unique alternative to the traditional facelift, without scars, general anaesthesia or even a scalpel.

 

Using his expertise and experience in plastic and reconstructive surgery and aesthetic medicine, Dr. Amar has spent the last 17 years developing one of today’s most sophisticated, advanced and innovative fat-grafting techniques for facial reconstruction, reshaping and rejuvenation with minimally invasive surgery. Dr. Amar named this new fat-grafting technique the FAMI™ – focusing on the use of cellular grafts using autologous adult stem cells, with proven long-lasting results

 

Based on a deep surgical knowledge and understanding of the human anatomy, FAMI™ represents a complex surgical procedure, while appearing simple and easy to understand to the patient.

 

The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis with local anesthesia. During the procedure, the adult stem cells are extracted with fatty tissue through gentle liposuction before being separated and purified in a centrifuge. Dr. Amar uses his specially designed and patented cannulaes to graft the autologous adult stem cells into specific areas of the muscle and bone surfaces. FAMI™ corrects, rejuvenates and restores the shape and the contours of the face, achieving the results of a traditional facelift without the need for incisions or sutures.

 

Dr Amar said: “After 25 years of private practice in Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, I was listening to my patients asking for more non-surgical face-lifting. My best results and the best of my international masters were never to be perfect. Scars, deformities, asymmetries and an unnatural look have been the signature of invasive procedure for rejuvenation. Why? Because the cause of the aging process, the loss of facial contour, were never treated at first. My patients wanted new procedures and to be left scarless! Thanks to them, I developed the FAMI™  technique to rejuvenate and offer them the most natural facelift without scalpel, without scars.”

 

Dr Amar knew that the sagging skin, dropping and/or emaciated faces that made people look old were not only caused by loss of muscle mass, but also loss of bone structure due to aging or disease. He came to the conclusion that the main problem in fat grafting procedures was the lack of vascularization and, consequently, that in order to get what they needed, the stem cells needed to be injected into the most vascularized tissue – the muscle, as well as under the periosteum. This would restore vascular bonds between skin, muscle and bone, giving the person undergoing the procedure back their natural youthful and healthy look – turning back time.

 

After more than 2,500 muscle injections from 1996 to 2002, and after 15 years of follow-up research, FAMI, without a doubt, offers the best solution to the very old problem of graft longevity: long-lasting successful and symmetrical results that have attracted hundreds of surgeons from all over the world to learn the ‘Amar technique’.

 

FAMI™ is much safer than standard open surgery that risks damage to arteries, veins, nerves and other facial structure. It provides an organic alternative to the unpredictability of traditional cosmetic remedies. FAMI™ is the first Technique in the world to insert safely stromal vascular fraction of the Fat (SVF) into the 30 facial expression muscles.

Dr Roger Amar

Plastic Surgeon & FAMI™ founder

 

A native of France, Dr. Roger Amar is a plastic surgeon based in London and Marbella, Spain. Since 1997, Dr. Amar’s FAMI technique has provided rare longevity and predictability in rejuvenation procedures through the use of purified adult stem cells, injected into the core of a patient’s muscle. FAMI approach represents a dramatic departure from the classical concept of fat injection, which has been the common solution for facial rejuvenation efforts, offering little permanence or predictability. In 2001 Dr Amar extended his concepts to restoration of Bone surfaces, muscle and fat atrophy and created the new registered FAMI technique called Fat Autografting Muscle Injection. Using an extensive knowledge of human anatomy and proprietary instruments designed specifically for the procedure, Dr. Amar has perfected the FAMI approach through the use of a patient’s own mesenchymal stem cells. Extracted from a patient and purified in a custom-designed centrifuge, these cells are then introduced back into the patient’s body through a deep, cellular graft. Providing an organic alternative to traditional means of adding needed volume, FAMI avoids synthetic fillers in favor of harnessing the healing power of the human body to add volume in a safe, effective and permanent manner.

 

FAMI can be accomplished without the need of a scalpel, rejuvenating all the structures of the face: bone, muscles and skin without any visible scars.

Dr. Amar has spent over a decade perfecting the FAMI technique through intensive research and real-world application of the FAMI technique, using mesenchymal “stem cells” to spur natural growth and volume. Areas of proven growth include the facial muscle system, bone surfaces and edges and along the jaw line, tightening the complex network of nerves and vessles that make up the face. Dr Amar has taught his method to more than 500 scholars all over the world, including US, Argentina, France and Germany.

Whicker’s World Foundation launches new documentary awards at Sheffield Doc Fest

Whicker’s World Foundation launches new documentary

awards at Sheffield Doc Fest

unnamed

  • Three awards worth a total of £100,000

  • Supporting authored storytelling in the UK

  • First winners to be announced at Sheffield Doc/Fest 2016

 

Sunday 7th June at Sheffield Doc/Fest: the new Whicker’s World Foundation, whose principle aim is to give a much needed fillip to authored documentary storytelling in the UK, today launches three new documentary filmmaker awards worth a total of £100,000 for the promotion of curiosity in programme making, generously funded by a legacy left by the celebrated broadcast journalist Alan Whicker, who died in 2013. Details of the Whicker’s World Foundation and the awards will be announced by filmmaker Kim Longinotto at a special event at Doc/Fest, following the screening of Whicker’s World: Conflict in Kentucky.

Says Mark Atkin, Acting Festival Director, Sheffield Doc/Fest: “I am very enthused that this foundation aims to encourage authored documentary at a time when TV is becoming increasingly formatted and when most foundations have requirements to promote social issues. This is exactly what the industry needs right now”.

 

The three awards – the Funding Award (worth £80,000 / £10,000 runner up) to a debut filmmaker under 30 years of age; the Recognition Award (worth £4,000 / £1,000 runner up) to the finest industry newcomer aged 50 years of age or over; and the Best Audio Documentary (worth £4,000 / £1,000) to be awarded at the In The Dark audio festival, also part of Doc/Fest – will be looking for a spirit of inquisitiveness that will leave the viewer wanting more, and tell something new and unexpected about the world.

The panel of judges, chaired by Valerie Kleeman, photographer, programme consultant and Whicker’s partner for more than 40 years, will also be looking for projects that are playful with how the story is told, either breaking new ground, or taking a familiar path to come up with a new style.

 

The Alan Whicker Foundation consultant, top ranking international TV executive Jane Mote, says: “Whicker’s World opened my eyes to the most amazing stories, people and places. Alan’s unique style and sharp wit was inspirational and I am so excited to be part of creating a Foundation to nurture the future trailblazers for international documentary film-making”.

 

Jane Ray, the Consultant Artistic Director for the Foundation is a multi-award winning documentary maker and executive producer in radio and television with a journalistic background and nearly 28 years’ service at the BBC. Her awards range from the Sony Award for best news programme (2002) and the TRIC award for best children’s programme (1993) to China’s Golden Kapok award for best director (2014). She worked with Alan throughout the 90s on various projects for radio. She also wrote and directed Radio 4’s archive programme about Alan: Around the World in 80 Years, presented by Michael Palin.

 

The first award winners will be announced by the Whicker’s World Foundation at the Sheffield Doc/Fest Award Ceremony, which will take place on the final day of the 2016 festival.

Once one of the leading titles in a booming lads mag sector, it hit print sales of 350,000 in 2000

 

Loaded, one of the titles synonymous with the mid-1990s lads’ mag boom, is to close after 21 years.

The last issue of the monthly magazine, which launched in 1994, is the April edition which is on sale now.

“As of the current April issue, published on March 26th, Loaded will cease to trade as a printed magazine,” the magazine’s publisher said in a statement. “We would like to pay tribute to our customers, staff and especially our contributors and editorial team”.

Loaded was once one of the the leading titles in a booming lads magazine sector, with sales of 350,000 in 2000.

In recent years the rise of the internet has seen sales plummet, circulation stood at about 35,000 in 2011, the last officially audited figures available for the title.

The magazine is owned by Simian Publishing, a company set up in 2013 for Loaded’s management to take control of the title.

The magazine has had a troubled recent history with four owners in three years and a brief period where it was put in to administration.

Simian acquired the title from Paul Baxendale-Walker, a multi-millionaire businessman who occasionally directs and stars in his own pornographic films, who owned it through Blue Publishing which went in to administration.

Baxendale-Walker acquired it in 2012 from Cooper Young, the administrators appointed to handle the sale of the magazine after parent company Vitality Publishing ran up a bill of £1m to creditors.

Vitality had acquired Loaded, gay lifestyle title Attitude, Superbike, horoscope title Prediction and Hair magazine from IPC Media, now Time Inc UK, in 2010.

In 2009, Bauer closed men’s monthly Arena after 22 years.

In the same year Dennis Publishing closed the print edition of Maxim after 14 years.

Last year, Time Inc shut Nuts, the weekly that along with arch-rival Zoo shook up the men’s magazine market a decade ago.

Qbees – Giving tweens the ultimate in product personalisation

QBEES-0033

 

 

London, 24th November 2014: There is no place for standardisation in the tween world today – being told what to like, wear or share simply doesn’t roll – it’s all about choice, creativity and being unique.

 

The latest craze to hit the UK is all of those things and more – it’s fun, highly collectable and inexpensive to boot. Qbees are fashion accessories that snap around headphone cables, giving tweens and teens the opportunity to decorate and accesorise their look.

 

Jason Palmer, Qbees Creator said: “Young people have so much passion and creative drive so why not let them be a part of designing the accessories they choose to wear. We want to champion young artists and commend creativity and this product does exactly that. And for those who prefer to choose ready-made designs, they can choose from a fantastic selection created either by our designers or their own peers.”

 

Qbees are made up of mini plastic snap-frames and interchangeable images (called Qubes) that sit inside, and they cost a mere £3 for the pair, regardless of whether you choose to upload your own photo, use the word editor or choose from the Qbees fabulous range. They allow the user to transform their boring headphone cables into works of art, message boards or personal statements. The product is so versatile it provides an ever-changing platform for young creative minds.

 

The concept was born during a ride on the London Underground when Jason noticed the people sitting opposite all had the same white cables hanging down around them. ‘How boring’ shifted to ‘Wouldn’t it be nice if they were more individual and colourful and interesting to look at’ and with that, the brand was born.

 

Not content with simply providing a variety of fun shapes, colours and images, the team behind Qbees have opened the doors to a new kind of product – offering people the chance to become Qube designers by submitting their ideas online. Winning designs will bag the artist £50 and they will get to watch as their Qube moves up the trending wall!

 

Move over playground trends, this craze is all about the wider world and letting tweens put their own stamp on it, literally…

Jason Palmer, Qbees Creator said: “Young people have so much passion and creative drive so why not let them be a part of designing the accessories they choose to wear. We want to champion young artists and commend creativity and this product does exactly that. And for those who prefer to choose ready-made designs, they can choose from a fantastic selection created either by our designers or their own peers.”

 

Qbees are made up of mini plastic snap-frames and interchangeable images (called Qubes) that sit inside, and they cost a mere £3 for the pair, regardless of whether you choose to upload your own photo, use the word editor or choose from the Qbees fabulous range. They allow the user to transform their boring headphone cables into works of art, message boards or personal statements. The product is so versatile it provides an ever-changing platform for young creative minds.

 

The concept was born during a ride on the London Underground when Jason noticed the people sitting opposite all had the same white cables hanging down around them. ‘How boring’ shifted to ‘Wouldn’t it be nice if they were more individual and colourful and interesting to look at’ and with that, the brand was born.

 

Not content with simply providing a variety of fun shapes, colours and images, the team behind Qbees have opened the doors to a new kind of product – offering people the chance to become Qube designers by submitting their ideas online. Winning designs will bag the artist £50 and they will get to watch as their Qube moves up the trending wall!

 

Move over playground trends, this craze is all about the wider world and letting tweens put their own stamp on it, literally…
