CAROLINE DENNIS: THE MAKE UP ARTIST

first_imgIt is hard to believe that such stunning special effects (pictured) are entirely created from make-up. What makes it even more incredible is that it is all done by one of our very own.  Whether it’s a fantasy or theatrical make-up, Caroline Dennis has the talent to elevate her craft of make-up design to a form of high art. But a skill that refined doesn’t come without training and a lot of skill.For someone who has only been in such a school for only four months, the Liberian-born make-up artist first made an impression of her work when she posted her first work on her Facebook page, getting over a hundred likes and comments expressing how talented people think she is based on a make-up job she did on a model.Born on July 7, 1987 in Monrovia, Caroline Dennis is a student at the Scandinavian International Make-up School in Bankok, Thailand. Still in her mid 20’s, her creations are not just impeccable and vibrant, but bursting with inspiration as well, making you wish you too could be a make-up artist.For Caroline, make-up was always something that intrigued her while growing up as a child, leaving her with no other options but dreams of becoming a make up artist some day. “I’ve always been drawn to colors and beauty, and it amazes me how make-up can transform a person from one look to the other.”In as much as Caroline is not a full time make-up artist, her work stands out for a beginner; but that doesn’t give the young creative artist a big ego. Rather it encourages her to do better.  “I’m even going into special effects and learning about everything from fantasy make-up, photography make-up, drag queen make up, photography black and white make-up, T.V and film bridal make-up, creative make-up, theater make-up, and fashion make-up”.But not all that glitters is gold.  Being in a school where you’re the only person of African descent is a huge challenge for Caroline. In addition to the stigmas associated with being Black, she’s also battling the challenge of learning how to do make up on her fellow black skin tone; as she’s only being taught how to do make up for models with fair skin. “I m the only black in the school so is hard for me to work on black skin tone. So I try my best to practice at home, doing my own make-up. At times I will practice on my friend”.Adding, “The difference is ‘white’ skin tone but I use the same basic on dark skin tone. Like matching the right foundation, know the skin type, type of eyes, shape of eyebrow, face shapes and contouring.  They are just white but I use the same technique to do a dark skin”.Beyond every successful person is a dream bigger than him/herself. For Caroline, her dreams are to one day come back home and give back to the society she comes from.“In the future eventually I will come back home and build up my name in the make-up industry as well as wanting to work in the Fashion and Film industry, working along with talented artists.”The budding make-up artist describes herself as a “simple person” and believes that within the next five years, “I will like to have my own make up team and create a big impression in the make-up industry.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Rare millipede steps back into limelight

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2I. plenipes was first spied in 1926 in San Benito County, about 120 miles southeast of San Francisco, by a government scientist who counted up to a record 750 legs. But it wasn’t seen again despite decades of searching. Until last fall. Paul Marek, a 28-year-old scientist from East Carolina University, and his brother chanced upon it. They were exploring a lush valley of oak trees in San Benito County, known as a biodiversity hot spot. “I practically fell over when I found it. It was extremely exhilarating,” said Marek, who published the discovery in today’s issue of the journal Nature. Millipedes thrive around the world in temperate and tropical zones. They feed on plant material and tend to hide under moist soil, wood piles and rocks. Marek isn’t giving the exact location of I. plenipes for fear of people disrupting the ecosystem. Over three days in the valley, he and his brother collected a dozen millipedes and painstakingly counted their legs under a microscope to confirm that they were part of the same species. Of those captured, the leggiest were the females, with 662 to 666 legs. The millipedes were brought back to Marek’s lab, where some were preserved for future DNA testing and others were shipped out to the Field Museum in Chicago for study. Darrell Ubick, an entomologist with the California Academy of Sciences, applauded the discovery. “By rediscovering it, we add more pieces of the puzzle to understanding it,” he said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The world’s leggiest creature is missing-in-action no more. A scientist found a rare species of millipede, last seen 80 years ago in central California, and has collected several of the inch-long bugs for study. This millipede has more than 600 legs, about twice those of the average millipede – despite the name which means “thousand-legged.” Of the estimated 10,000 species, only one, I. plenipes, comes close to living up to its name. “This is a milestone find,” said Richard Hoffman, a millipede expert at the Virginia Museum of Natural History, who had no connection with the discovery. last_img read more

REVENUE AUDIT CASH FROM COMPULSORY PURCHASE ORDERS

first_imgLandowners who reaped bonanza payments from compulsory purchase orders (CPO) in the Celtic Tiger years can expect a call from the Revenue, a local tax consultant has warned.“Considerable 6 and 7 figure sums were paid out to landowners in recent years when their land was bought under CPOs to build roads and other infrastructure projects. The tax authorities have now started auditing people who received CPO payments to see if they have paid the full amount of capital gains tax due,” said Niall Doherty.Doherty said that whilst some taxpayers may have paid the Capital Gains Tax due in full, others may have returned less than the full amount of Capital Gains Tax due. Additionally, not all taxpayers will have settled the Capital Gains Tax liability on time, and will be exposed to interest on late payment of tax. This interest can mount quite rapidly.Said Mr Doherty: “Nationally, it is believed that 50 audits have already been conducted, with only seven having resulted in a zero tax liability. The investigations have begun in Carlow, Kilkenny, Kildare, Laois, Meath, Tipperary, Waterford, Wexford and Wicklow.“The Revenue has written to the roads managers in all of these counties looking for details of all CPO payments made in recent years. It is likely that given the large number of cases that have resulted in settlements that all Revenue Districts will be reviewing CPOs in the near future.”Niall Doherty Tax Consultants have significant experience in planning for CGT on CPO’s and they are available to meet with anyone who would like to discuss their Capital Gains Tax transactions.

“Patient, five minutes from hospital, deceased when ambulance came an hour later”

first_imgSerious concerns have been raised over ambulance availability at Letterkenny University Hospital amid claims that a patient, located five minutes from the hospital, was deceased when ambulance personnel arrived after an hour.Councillors Ciaran Brogan and Gerry Crawford, members of the Western Regional Health Forum, have called for urgent action.“Recently a family waited for an hour for an ambulance to arrive and unfortunately the patient was deceased. We want to make sure it doesn’t happen to any other family or patient,” Councillors Brogan and Crawford say in a statement to this week’s Tirconaill Tribune. “In this particular instance an ambulance was called to a location just five minutes away from Letterkenny Hospital. There was no ambulance available from LUH and the nearest available one was in Dungloe.“And by the time it had arrived in Letterkenny a Sligo ambulance that had become available in Letterkenny was dispatched to do the call and unfortunately the patient was deceased.”The Councillors are seeking a meeting between ambulance management and senior officials at LUH.Currently, there are two ambulances on duty each night from LUH. Councillors Brogan and Crawford said: “One of the problems is that if any of these ambulances gets a call out they arrive at A& E and can be delayed there for hours depending on how busy it is.“We have evidence that in some cases, five hours and there was even one kept waiting for seven hours. That is no reflection on the staff at A&E or the ambulance crews who both are doing excellent work under stressful circumstances.“It means that at least one of the ambulances on call can be delayed for a long time when it might be needed elsewhere. It can lead to huge delays and there doesn’t appear to be a proper back-up plan in place.“We need to have additional ambulance crews in place to meet these needs and the hospital needs to be adequately resourced.“The current model being used by ambulance service is simply not working and a new strategy has to be devised. “There is something seriously wrong with a system when staff can be on duty for close to twenty-four hours. The situation as it stands is just not workable and we have ambulances from Boyle, County Roscommon, going to answer call outs in Ballyshannon, an ambulance travelling from Monaghan to Buncrana, another one going from Manorhamilton to Bridgend, and one going from Killybegs to Killygordon.”The Donegal County Councillors say that crews at the ambulance base in Letterkenny are ‘at the end of their tether’.“Patient, five minutes from hospital, deceased when ambulance came an hour later” was last modified: February 16th, 2018 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Councillor Ciaran BroganCouncillor Gerry CrawfordHSELetterkenny University HospitalluhWestern Regional Health Forumlast_img read more
