A brooch is commonly favored accessory by those of the British royal family, especially Queen Elizabeth II. The monarch has quite an impressive collection, including inherited pieces from Queen Victoria and Queen Mary as well as specially commissioned ones she was gifted over the years.But an all time favorite has to be the True Lover’s Knot, which the queen wore to Duchess Kate’s wedding back in 2011.- Advertisement – The Meaning Behind Duchess Camilla's Brooch in Her Newest PortraitDuchess Camilla. Courtesy of Clarence House/InstagramNow that’s a standout accessory. Duchess Camilla wore a meaningful brooch for her newest royal portrait.On Thursday, November 5, a portrait of the Duchess of Cornwall was unveiled to commemorate her role as Colonel-in-Chief of The Rifles. On her elegant green top, the 73-year-old royal wore a silver Bugle Horn brooch. This piece of jewelry, which was commissioned by The Rifles, represents the heritage of the regiment. In fact, every rifleman wears a silver bugle as their cap badge.- Advertisement – The photograph was taken last month at Clarence House after the Prince Philip transferred his role over to the duchess in July. However, on Wednesday, November 4, Duchess Camilla attended the 92nd Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey in her new role, wearing the same brooch on a dark green coat quite reminiscent of her portrait ensemble.In a message to the regiment, the Duchess said, “Riflemen, with the rest of our nation, I am profoundly in your debt for all that you do, especially during these troubled times. Continue to uphold those qualities of discipline, courage and sense of humour that my father spoke of and be proud of all that you represent.”She concluded, “Wherever you may be viewing this message, on operations in Afghanistan, deployed to Estonia, on exercise in the U.K. or indeed, enjoying some much-deserved leave, thank you from the bottom of my heart.”- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

Ticketing process changes again

first_imgStudents will have to wake up early this year if they want to attend the Wisconsin football games.[/media-credit]The University of Wisconsin Athletic Department will once again be changing its ticket policy for the upcoming 2009-10 football season.According to a news release from the Athletic Department Monday night, the new policy will be based on two different sales times, both on a first-come, first-served basis. The first sales period will take place on June 22 at 8:30 a.m. and will be available exclusively to undergraduates, including incoming freshmen.The next wave of sales will take place on July 6 and will be available exclusively for graduate and professional students. This group also includes incoming graduate students. The Athletic Department has allotted 1,700 tickets for this group based on previous records of how many students from this category have traditionally purchased student football tickets.If there are any remaining tickets from the allotted number given to graduate students after 4:30 p.m. on July 10, both undergraduate and graduate students will be able to purchase these tickets starting July 13 at 8:30 a.m.According to the release, the Athletic Department changed the policy based on feedback from students through personal communication with students on campus, an online survey given to student ticketholders throughout the 2008 season and a postseason focus group.Members of the Associated Students of Madison Shared Governance Committee were involved in the focus groups trying to get a better perspective on students’ views.Logan Hulick, a Shared Governance Committee member who also works with the Athletic Department, said between 60 and 100 people were asked to participate in the focus groups. The people who received these emails were members of ASM, student media and concerned students. Of this group, about 25 people attended.“It was everywhere from seniors to freshmen,” Hulick said. “I don’t know how even it was, but it was definitely from both, and graduate students were there.”According to both Hulick and Jake McGee, also a member of the Shared Governance Committee, the consensus of the group was to eliminate the lottery system and change it to a first-come, first-served basis regardless of class standing.“The freshmen are equally excited, and they are students too,” McGee said. “It’s hard to throw out judgments saying the freshmen might be later, and the seniors might be earlier.”While the purchasing process for student tickets may have changed, the distribution system has not. Those who receive tickets will still get vouchers for their seats as they have in years past and will be able to redeem them at the stadium gates on game day.The Badgers will hold seven home games this coming year, including a night-game opener against Northern Illinois on Sept. 5.Senior Associate Athletic Director for External Relations Vince Sweeney could not be reached for comment as of press time.last_img read more

Thank you for your input. +13 Vote up Vote down WHS Band Alum · 218 weeks ago I do not think that getting rid of 5th grade band is a very good idea. We will see what happens though I guess. Report Reply 1 reply · active 218 weeks ago +6 Vote up Vote down Small Town Boy · 218 weeks ago Last I knew, all 5th graders supply their own instruments through purchase, rent-to-own, etc. I also thought that the band director drove to each elementary to teach (as opposed to busing the kids to the high school thrice weekly like they used to). Granted, I’m not sure if he had a gas allowance provided in his contract. I just can’t figure out how much money the USD would be saving by this cut. It undoubtedly has nothing to do with the classroom time kids trade to go to band, as that has been happening for decades. And I definitely know that the benefit kids receive from being involved in instrumental music FAR outweigh the cost of a gas allowance provided to a band instructor (who is likely using his own vehicle, to boot). Can someone explain the cost savings the USD is expecting from this proposed cut? Report Reply +1 Vote up Vote down little bits · 218 weeks ago I agree with Small Town Boy. There are many benefits to instrumental music programs. They cut art class in the elementary schools years ago and now they want to eliminate 5th grade band? what will be next? vocal music? Last I knew the instructors were given X amount of dollars per building change to travel between schools. Report Reply 0 replies · active 218 weeks ago +4 Vote up Vote down james day · 218 weeks ago I agree to, but you never hear them cutting sports, You have like 5 to 6 coaches on a football sideline, I think I see them cutting some of them, And Assistant Principles, and assist Superintendent ect. But ya that wont happen. Report Reply 0 replies · active 218 weeks ago Post a new comment Enter text right here!
