We used to share everything

THE night before Senior Constable David Rixon was killed, his wife Fiona kissed him goodnight at their Tamworth home and told him, "I love you, I’ll see you in the morning."

It was a promise that was cruelly taken away from her in a quiet residential street as the city came
discount ray bans to life the next morning.

The next time Fiona saw her husband he was lying in a hospital bed with a bullet wound
fake ray bans to his chest, his life gone in a hail of gunfire on that fateful Friday morning in West Tamworth as he went about his work making a routine traffic stop.

Ironically, in a room just a few doors away, the man who now stands accused of his murder was barely alive, doctors working under heavy police guard to save his life.

While the facts of exactly what happened on that tragic morning are yet to be told in court, his widow tells of the pain and loss her family faced in the aftermath of his death.

Fiona Rixon breaks into a smile as she tells of how she and David met.

"It was 10.30 ish on a Saturday night, the 5th of September, one of the last Time Warp dances at the West Tamworth League Club."

Out with a group of girlfriends, a mutual friend saw the potential between the pair and cockily dragged David onto the dancefloor where Fiona
discount ray bans was standing with her friends.

"We got talking, we just talked, it was as comfortable as an old sock," Fiona smiles.

"He said, ‘you know I’m a copper?’ and I said ‘I don’t care.’

"I said ‘you know I have three children’, and he said ‘I don’t care’."

After talking for a while, Fiona said she told him she was leaving and he gave her his phone number, asking her to repeat it back so she wouldn’t forget it.

"He was desperate for me to remember his phone number," she said.

"I don’t know how many times he asked me to repeat it to him."

Fiona said it took her three days to finally get the courage to ring his number.

From then on it was always David and Fiona.

The pair moved in together just three months after they met, Fiona saying she just knew David was the man for her.

"It was just right," Fiona said.

"I would say it was love at first sight."

David also became a father to Fiona’s three teenagers, Renae, Jemma and Scott, taking them in as his own children.

"He was the only man who was a father to them," Fiona said.

"Ricko" to his friends
cheap ray ban outlet and work colleagues, Fiona said she always called him "sweetheart" the nickname an indicator of the happy relationship the pair shared.

Although reserved at work, David was known for his bad "dad jokes" and fun nature at home, always ribbing or stirring someone, Fiona said.

The couple went on to grow their family, with Matthew and Haley born in the years after they met.

Married on February 17, 2001, Fiona was pregnant with their youngest child Patrick, completing the family of eight.

Settling into family life, David would always kiss his wife goodbye before beginning his shift as a highway patrol officer at Tamworth Police Station, where he had worked since 1996.

Fiona said she was never worried about his safety as a police officer, but sometimes would worry if he returned home later than when his shift ended.

"He learnt very early to text me if he was ever going to be late."

Fiona said she always thought if tragedy struck David at work, it would be fatigue and many kilometres on the road that might result in an accident.Articles Connexes:

top 10 UConn men

10. , 1997 2000: The 5 foot 10 point guard scored UConn’s final four points in the 1999 national championship game. He averaged 15.1 points and 4.4 assists over his three year career.

9. , 1988 92: Bridgeport’s finest is still the leading scorer in UConn’s history (2,145 career
cheap ray bans points). He helped put Connecticut on the map, earning Most Outstanding Player in the 1990 Big East tournament.

8. , 2001 04: was the more celebrated player, but Gordon was vital to the 2004 title run. He scored a then record 80 points in three games at the Big East tournament (of course, the record was shattered seven years later when some 6 foot 1 guard won five games in five days).

7. , 2000 02: Butler was arguably the Big East’s best player during his two seasons in Storrs. The 6 foot 7 forward averaged 20.3 points and 7.5 boards as he led UConn to Big East regular season and tournament titles in 2002.

6. , 1991 94: Marshall averaged 25.1 points as a junior the best single season mark in program history en route to becoming Jim Calhoun’s first All American.

5. , 1996 99: The lead dog for the 1999

4. , 1993 96: Allen drilled 200 3 pointers in his final two seasons and the Huskies lost just eight games in that span. They ran into a juggernaut (UCLA) in his
replica ray ban sunglasses sophomore season, and fell one game shy of the Elite Eight despite Allen’s 36
discount ray bans points.

3. , 2008 11: As a junior, Walker averaged 23.5 points, 5.4 rebounds and 4.5 assists, statistically the best year in program history. Oh, he also willed the Huskies to 11 wins in 29 days, an unimaginable run that saw the entire team assume his refusal to lose. And don’t forget: A 23 point performance against Missouri in the 2009 Elite Eight propelled Calhoun to his third Final Four.

2. , 2010 2014: I kept trying to justify Walker over Napier and just couldn’t do it. Napier is the only star UConn player to win two titles. Although Walker carried the Huskies to the first, Napier played a significant role. And then he had a prolific junior season at a crucial time, carrying UConn through a postseason ban, and then this: An NCAA tournament run that somehow one upped Walker’s. Truth is, Napier won a national championship with a team that wasn’t quite as talented as Walker’s 2011 squad.

1. Emeka Okafor, 2001 04: The best player in the country in 2003 04, Okafor scored 17.6 points, pulled down 11.5 rebounds and swatted away 4.1 shot attempts per game. If he had stayed in college all four years and kept his pace, he’d
discount ray bans hold the NCAA record for career blocks (Okafor blocked 441 in three seasons; Mississippi State’s Jarvis Varnado recorded 564 in four years).Articles Connexes:

the futuristic augmented reality glasses

Portola Valley, California: The future is here and it’s projecting itself right back at me.

I’m in a converted cathedral, deep within Silicon Valley, getting a demonstration of the latest prototype of Meta Pro, the augmented reality glasses its founders say is the PC of the future.

Looking like a cross between ski goggles and Ray Bans, Meta allows wearers to see and interact with virtual objects in 3D using their hands. Wearers can see the non existent objects thanks to tiny projectors in the glasses, while sensors detect hand movements.

What the Meta Pro glasses look like when worn.

A number of former University of Sydney and University of Wollongong students are working on Meta, along with others from around the world, in a team of almost 40. Its co founders profiled by Fairfax Media earlier this year are Ben Sand, Meron
replica ray ban sunglasses Gribetz and Raymond Lo.

Uses for the technology include interacting with a virtual smartphone or laptop, a live action role playing game where players can throw virtual fireballs at each other and a sculpting app that can send handmade designs directly to a 3D printer. It can also include virtual web browsers, keyboards and videos being pinned to tables and walls, allowing for things like tweets and movies to be displayed on almost any surface.

So does it actually live up to the hype? In a demonstration by Gribetz, the Meta chief executive, it still feels like very early days for the product. But I can see its potential.

What one of the Meta Pro’s latest prototypes looks like.

I was able to burst virtual 3D "orbs" with my finger (just like in the game Asteroids) and move them around with both hands by grabbing them; type on a virtual keyboard in mid air with surprising accuracy; and explore 3D models of a Tesla electric car and motor. I was also able to read an article in a web browser and scroll up and down by tilting my head. While in the browser I was also able to click on links to navigate to other pages on a website.

Surprisingly, I didn’t feel sick while and after using the glasses. This is often a complaint of those who use the Oculus Rift, which offers virtual reality, as opposed to
fake ray bans Meta’s augmented reality.

The difference between the two is that virtual reality requires you to basically strap a screen on your face that transports you to another world, whereas Meta augments your reality by allowing virtual objects to appear in front of you without fully disrupting your field of view. This means you can still see the real world around you while also seeing 3D objects.

The developer edition of the Meta glasses.

For now, the glasses connect to a small, rectangular computer connected to a laptop or PC. But in the not too distant future, Gribetz says all of this will fit into a compact PC.

"You’re going to have a pocket computer instead of your computer," he said. "You’ll plug it in to that, which sits in your pocket and gives you enough computing [power] to walk around with it."

discount ray bans it ships later this year, the Meta Pro will costs around $US3000 ($3220). A cheaper version with fewer features, called the META.01 Developer Edition, for those building apps for the device, is shipping now for $US667. So far, Gribetz says there are about 500 apps being developed more than half are video games.

Although the Meta Pro has 16 times the viewable area of Google Glass and makes use of more than 20 powerful sensors, Meta’s founders don’t see it as a Google Glass competitor.

Instead, they see it as the future of the PC. But in my view it has a long way to go before I recommend anyone consider pre ordering it. The demo showed it was buggy and took a few restarts of the software before Gribetz was able to get it to track my hand, for example. But it’s still in the "alpha" stage of development, so this is to be expected.

The engineers working on the Meta Pro almost 90 per cent of them live on campus have put in a lot of work to make a truly augmented reality come to life. That much is clear when you look at how far the team former NASA, Google and Microsoft engineers have come.

The ability to detect when a hand is clenched up like a fist, even when it’s facing away from the camera, is remarkable. There’s a hell of a lot of maths that goes into that, and when perfected it could provide a world of possibilities.

Is this the future of computing? If I was to compare it to something like the Leap Motion, which is touted as a replacement to the computer mouse, I think it has a far better chance of becoming something useful.

It’s exciting times
cheap ray bans ahead for the Meta team. And with the help of Jayse Hansen, the man responsible for heads up display in Iron Man 3, on the user interface design and other high profile names in the wearable computer space, Meta really could become the future of computing.Articles Connexes:

Look fashionable for less

Become a Fabric Expert

Your best bet is a natural fiber. "If it’s not from the earth or from an animal think silk, cotton, and wool the material often looks inferior," says Beth Amason, a fabric coordinator for New York City clothing manufacturer Vandale Industries who has sourced materials for Anthropologie and Topshop. Still, not all finer fabrics are necessarily fine; make sure the material is soft and smooth and has a nice luster. To test the resilience of silks and knits, pull the fabric across its width and lengthwise. Lesser quality materials will sag, an effect that will get more pronounced after multiple wearings, says Amason.

But don’t rule out all synthetics. Textile manufacturing has improved dramatically since the 1970s, the era of leisure suits it’s now possible to find polyester, nylon, and rayon that resemble natural fibers. Polyester versions of satin and chiffon can be especially luxurious, as long as they’re not too shiny or stiff. When it comes to blends of natural and man made fibers, like silk and nylon, check the
Michael Kors discounts tag, which lists the proportions of each. "Make sure that there’s a higher percentage of the natural fiber," says Amason.

Real Simple: 22 creative gifts for women

Choose Your Color (and Pattern) Carefully

Wear one neutral head to toe. Going monochromatic can instantly elevate a look, according to New York City based celebrity stylist Amanda Sanders, who says black, ivory, taupe, and gray are particularly sophisticated. The shades don’t have to match exactly unless you’re pairing black with black, in which case mismatched shades cheapen the outfit, says Samantha von Sperling, a stylist and the director of Polished Social Image Consultants, a wardrobe advising service in New York City.

Expand your palette with deep tones. Go for burgundy, eggplant, or indigo instead of pastels and brights.

Stick to classic prints. Opt for simple, uniform patterns stripes, polka dots, plaids, or color blocking which are nearly impossible to mess up. Splashy florals and abstract designs have the potential to look like projects from an amateur art class.

Be Picky About Embellishments

Subtle is safest. Zippers, small sequins, and beading with a matte finish usually pass for good quality even when made
cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet inexpensively.

Another flourish that looks fancy, not tacky: "Fabric manipulation pleating, ruching, draping is a designer touch that can be done well with synthetics," says Rachel Roy, a designer of both upscale and affordable fashion lines. Unless you’ve dropped big coin on the garment, fake gem embellishments tend to look like something plucked out of a gum ball machine particularly if they’re plastic. The same holds for shiny buttons, large sequins, and lots of logos, which are meant to advertise luxury but tend to have the opposite effect.

Real Simple: How to dress for any occasion

Construction Is Key

Turn a potential buy inside out. That’s where you’ll most likely find loose or jumbled threads (commonly at the hemline) and seams that aren’t perfectly straight, says Christian Siriano, who designs a line of shoes and bags for Payless. Also, make sure that the lining doesn’t look bubbly or hang lower than the hem of the garment.

Check the high stress points. Clothing that has been tried on over and over again may be damaged before it leaves the store. Inspect each item for holes in the underarms,
cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet a stretched neckline, torn tops of pleats, pulled seams at the waistband, or threads dangling from buttons and buttonholes.

You Can’t Go Wrong With Simple Shapes

Think clean lines. A lines, shirtdresses, wrap styles, sheath dresses, and straight leg pants always look polished. Generally, the more complicated the design, the greater the margin for error in the execution. If you have to choose between a sleek pencil cut or something with a more elaborate structure, such as a tulip skirt or a trendy jumpsuit, "go for the basic silhouette every time," says
Michael Kors handbag outlet Von Sperling. Even if, say, military is all over the runways, buyer beware: "Things like epaulets and too many pockets can get very gaudy very fast," warns Feldon.

Fit Is Everything

Alterations can make an average piece outstanding. Even a $1,000 Prada creation looks sloppy if it’s ill fitting so imagine the effect with a $30 dress. Luckily, you can upgrade a budget buy with a relatively low cost visit to the tailor. Keep in mind: You have more leeway to take a garment in than to let it out. These alterations yield the highest payoff.

Lowering the hem. The most flattering skirt hemline is at the knee. If you have two inches folded at the hem, a tailor will be able to extend the length by an inch.

Narrowing a bodice. There shouldn’t be excess fabric under the arms or the bust.

Stitching up bulging pockets. Have the linings removed and the slits sealed for a streamlined look.

Shortening pant hems. They should stop just short of kissing the floor.

Taking in a saggy waist. You should be able to slide only two fingers inside the band.

Tacking up long shirt cuffs. Full length sleeves
replica Michael Kors handbags should hit your wristbones.

But don’t bother with these pricey fixes: A droopy crotch area, too big shoulders,
Michael Kors handbags outlet and any problem that’s in an area with a zipper or pleats. These will require a complete overhaul,
Michael Kors outlet which in the end
cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet will cancel out the money you’re saving.

Real Simple: Avoiding wardrobe blunders

Find Costume Jewelry That Wows

When in doubt, go with the best imposters. You’ll have the most luck with reproductions of turquoise, coral, abalone shell, black jet, and silver tone metal. Weigh your options: Jewelry that is heavier hangs better.Articles Connexes:

Top 7 Ways to Be a Better Listener

Because our listening styles reflect our unspoken values and motivations, we often assume that others will have listening styles that are similar to our own. When others do not share our style, the chances of a miscommunication significantly increase. Even more important, we frequently misinterpret the real meaning of this miscommunication.

Avoid signs of restlessness, such as tapping a pencil or shuffling papers, while listening. Even on the
cheap Michael Kors telephone, your
cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet inattentiveness will be detected.

Ask questions and paraphrase for fuller understanding. Check out what you think you heard by giving the speaker feedback.

Be attentive to what is NOT said but do not jump to
cheap Michael Kors outlet conclusions prematurely. The speaker may be trying not to offend you by side stepping a question.

Listen for the speaker’s intent. Poor communication skills on the
Cheap Michael Kors handbags part of the speaker frequently lead to misunderstandings and sometimes to hostility. Understanding the speaker’s intent can aid effective communications.
