True: “Hocus Pocus 2” is about dark magic and madness in Salem and eating face cream to look younger. There are always the Sanderson sisters and Billy Butcherson and, yes, a black flame candle. Also true: The film is the long-awaited sequel, 30 years later, to arguably the most beloved Halloween classic, which leaves tall, belted witch shoes to fill – a task that production, cast and crew have taken every detail seriously, including the hair.

While the aesthetics of each of the three Sanderson witches – Winifred, Sarah and Mary (played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy, respectively) – have been intentionally retained with the same courtesy of their personal hairstylists, the head of the movie hair Karyn Alexander had plenty of room to play with styles from their teenage years, as well as newly added characters like Becca (Whitney Peak) and Izzy (Belissa Escobedo) throughout the film.

Only this time, the sequel, which was directed by Anne Fletcher and is available to stream now on Disney+, introduced a handful of new storylines that required a bit of behind-the-scenes wizardry, hair doubles, and lots of wigs (150 , to be exact ). Here, Alexander breaks down all the movie magic that went into the “Hocus Pocus 2” hairstyles.

Creation of wigs for “Mini” Winifred, Sarah and Mary

The original Sanderson sisters aren’t the only ones to watch in the sequel; there are also the teen versions starring Taylor Henderson as Winnie, Juju Journey Brener as Sarah, and Nina Kitchen as Mary. Some of the earlier scenes feature the mini-witches explaining why they turned out the way they did, and there was one prerequisite with the hair: it had to be consistent.

“We wanted them to be recognizable as soon as you see them — we wanted you to see Winnie walking through the crowd and know for sure that little redhead with all that fire is Winnie,” she says. “We have remained faithful to all their [hairstyle] silhouettes but tried to make them reflect the time period.”

Alexander adds that while all the young witches wore wigs, the same wig maker who made Bette Midler’s wigs gave the hair to the film’s head wig maker. Gretchen Evans to make one for little Winnie. “So her wig is almost exactly the same, just in miniature.”

The Surprising Secret to Realistic 1600s Hairstyles

Because Salem’s flashbacks to young witches were set in the 1600s, Fletcher’s direction with “Hocus Pocus 2” was to make the hair as time-accurate as possible. It took a bit of research and a lot of behind-the-scenes creativity: “They didn’t have the modern tools that we have today to style their hair and we wanted to stay true to the times,” says Alexander. “In the 1600s, they didn’t cut their hair with scissors, so [ends] were blunt and harder. The edges weren’t as refined because you were cutting them with a dull blade or knives.”

For specific styles, the team also used real techniques employed at the time, including Marcel Tongs to curl the hair instead of a modern curling iron as well as pieces of fabric to create realistic lived-in waves ( with the latter, she adds, “People used to wrap their hair in rolls of rag, or pieces of cloth, so they could sleep in it”). The team also incorporated paper weights to give certain looks a vintage feel, such as with Tony Hale’s character as the Reverend.

“With the city people, they’re dirty and rough; their hair isn’t clean, that’s why they wear beanies and caps,” says Alexander, meaning the team had to s rely on modern tricks of the trade to create that “dirty” hair effect. “I’ve used a lot of spray wax – that, and shaving cream. It’s hard to dull hair because every pomade or gel makes it shiny. Shaving cream is really good for dulling people’s hair. people; it makes hair matte. You can’t get the fancy lathers. It’s just plain old white barbershop shaving cream. I go with old school Gillette ($3) – all I can get multiples.

Hidden hair nods to witches

In the new film, audiences are introduced to three new modern-day main characters – Becca, Lizzy and Cassie – who are all meant to represent the “new coven”. This detail was woven throughout the film in subtle Easter eggs: “When you look at them and their hair, there are colors and [details] in their costumes that mimic witches,” says Alexander.

That’s why Becca wears her hair curly and in a bun, like Winnie Sanderson, while Izzy has a high ponytail atop her head to mimic the exaggerated taper hairstyle worn by Mary Sanderson and Cassie wears her hair down during the most of the film as Sarah Sanderson. “When you see the silhouettes, you can see there’s a bit of it in the witches and the witches in them,” she says.

Throwbacks to “Hocus Pocus” Hair You May Have Missed

Like the original, some of the best hair and makeup moments come from the epic Halloween festival. It’s also where the film’s hairstylists got to have the most fun: “I had 12 hairstylists working on set for this scene and it was like, ‘Here’s a box of wigs, do whatever you want ‘”, she says. “We probably had 150 wigs every day we did this festival. It was our creative moment.”

Blink and you might miss all the subtle throwbacks to the original Halloween costumes from the first film – there’s a nod to Madonna’s conical bra and sleek ponytail, angel costumes and devil and the multiple outfits of Sister Sanderson. “We have a Marie Antoinette walking around wearing her wig because she’s so heavy she wouldn’t wear it all the time. It was like Halloween every day filming these scenes.”

Behind the making of the witch mother’s wig

Another new character in the film is Mother Witch (Hannah Waddingham), who is unlike any other witch from Disney’s past. “The normal witch is always scary with very white hair or dark black hair – we wanted her to be ethereal,” Alexandra explains. “You thought she was beautiful but yet you were a little scared of her. You didn’t know where to go. Are you going to this woman or are you staying away from this woman? Will you love me? With her wig, Gretchen and I landed on this luminescent silvery purple lavender with a dark mottled root.

She adds, “Everything was custom hand dyed and then hand tied. We didn’t want it to look real, so the shade almost looks like an oil slick color. This is the most beautiful wig ever.”

The hair products they used the most on set

One of Alexander’s favorite products was the one the entire crew turned to throughout filming. “We used Unite Hair 7 Seconds Detangler Leave-In Conditioner ($28) on our wigs because you don’t wash as much as you would the hair,” she says. We did all the witch double wigs for body doubles so we had to keep them maintained and looking healthy. You would spray that at night and scrunch it up so you could go back and curl it in the morning.”

For Peak’s hair in particular, she liberally used Amika Power Hour Curl Refreshing Spray ($25) between scenes to give her curls a boost. “We used a lot of Amika products on set; the products are so light and really good.”

Power outages soar in South Carolina

Hurricane Ian is expected to make landfall in South Carolina soon.

Coastal areas are already feeling the effects of the storm, as roads are inundated by storm surges and heavy rains.

A storm surge of two to seven feet is expected along the entire South Carolina coast and authorities expect flooding to worsen this afternoon, making roads impassable.

High winds and strong currents are trapping storm surge waters inland, Gov. Henry McMaster said during a Friday press briefing.

High winds of 50 to 80 mph have already been reported, but gusts of up to 90 mph are expected, the National Weather Service said during the briefing.

A tornado watch has been issued for parts of northeastern South Carolina, as well as much of eastern North Carolina.



The winds have already downed several trees and power lines. The South Carolina Department of Transportation said 200 downed trees have already been felled.

Power outages continue to increase across the state. As of 10:30 a.m. this morning, there were 32,927 outages. That number rose to more than 69,000 by noon. Crews are ready to restore power lines when conditions allow it safely.

According to PowerOutage.us, there were 118,546 customers without power in eastern South Carolina as of 1:22 p.m.

Although there is water on the roads, there are no major closures yet.

The state’s Emergency Management Division has already responded to some mission requests that include debris clearance, deep-sea vehicle requests and rescues.

No fatalities have been reported at this point, but McMaster is urging all residents to stay safe and avoid leaving their homes or driving during the storm.

McMaster said human error is the “deadliest thing we have”, warning miscalculations and carelessness could lead to deaths during and after the storm.

Five shelters have been opened across the state. There are currently 119 people in the shelters, about 15% of their capacity.

Lesley Manville led the way at the red carpet premiere of her latest film, Mrs Harris Goes To Paris, in her chic all-black outfit.

The 66-year-old posed with co-stars at the Curzon Mayfair cinema in central London, which had a miniature Eiffel Tower behind them to set the stage for the recently released adaptation of Paul Gallico’s 1958 novel.

The Crown actress stars as widowed maid Ada, a hardworking housekeeper who decides she wants to spend all her savings on a Dior dress, after seeing one worn by a wealthy client.

She skimps and saves (and gambles at the racetrack) to raise enough money and finally arrives at Dior’s headquarters on Avenue Montaigne, where she charms everyone.

The fairy tale is over when she moves to Paris and begins to make changes – for the better – at the fashion house.

On Sunday night, Lesley wore a sleek black leather blazer and a set of straight-leg pants, completing the all-black look with a pair of patent leather pointy heels that popped below the pant legs.

Her warm brown locks looked voluminous as they were pulled away from her face to highlight her face.

Explaining that the role of cleaner was more relevant, she told Alison Boshoff of the Daily Mail: ‘It’s in my bones. This is the life I knew, because I had working-class parents.

Lesley reflects, “I didn’t know the book at all. It came to me as an offer, so it was nice to read it, knowing it was mine if I wanted it.

Continuing: “It was more exaggerated when I was playing someone like Princess Margaret, because I had no knowledge of that life.”

The company builds a Venlo greenhouse at the headquarters https://cprs-palestine.org/the-company-builds-a-venlo-greenhouse-at-the-headquarters/ Wed, 21 Sep 2022 13:06:37 +0000 https://cprs-palestine.org/the-company-builds-a-venlo-greenhouse-at-the-headquarters/ The Overstock headquarters team, in the harsh, dry climate of the Utah desert, wanted to strengthen the company’s corporate culture in order to retain and attract employees.

The Overstock headquarters team, in the harsh, dry climate of the Utah desert, wanted to strengthen the company’s corporate culture in order to retain and attract employees.

One of the ways they sought to do this was to not only provide fresh, responsibly grown produce on their cafeteria menu, but also to encourage their employees to learn how to grow their own vegetables in a professional greenhouse by working condition.

The greenhouse would be a visually appealing interactive environment. Its goals would be to improve workplace culture, promote sustainability and well-being, and serve as a multipurpose space for other employee activities.

John Burgoon, one of Prospiant’s in-house solutions architects, explains how this unique project was conceived, designed and built in partnership with Overstock and how it now works for the daily well-being of all employees and their families.

e-commerce technology company building a greenhouse
Overstock originally purchased this property from the local government to build its new headquarters campus in Salt Lake City. The land was previously a former foundry, a steel foundry in an industrial area. “Overstock cleared the area as the foundation for their new headquarters,” he says.

The headquarters has a circular design similar to a Roman Colosseum with interior gardens that are shaped like a round peace symbol called the Colosseum of Peace. “They wanted to create a campus-like environment, similar to a tech campus like those used by Google or Apple, but with a theme that promotes peace and sanctuary for their employees.”

“They had also installed a walking track around the perimeter of the entire property so employees could get out during their lunch and walk or run around it. A smoothie bar and cafeteria were also included inside the main building of the Peace Coliseum.”

Adapt Prospiant’s Venlo greenhouse design to company vision and culture
“When Overstock started planning the design of the cafeteria, one of the things that came to mind was to serve responsibly grown fresh vegetables to its employees,” John remarks. “As Prospiant worked in conjunction with the Overstock team, the project grew much larger because they wanted a functional greenhouse where people could participate in growing the vegetables they would eat in the cafeteria. grows several types of crops in the greenhouse. These included everything from flowers to vegetables as well as leafy greens for their employees to eat.”

When constructing the Venlo greenhouse, Prospiant included raised beds to not only create an easily accessible hobby-sized vegetable garden, but also to create an area that could be used for a variety of purposes; the greenhouse would also function as a multi-purpose space for events.

“So far, they’ve hosted hot yoga classes, learning programs for kids, and even weddings for their employees,” says John. “The greenhouse is great for hot yoga because of the heat and humidity in the space. They also hosted several groups of children and learned how to grow their own vegetables. And it all happened while helping to offset cafeteria costs by growing their own fresh produce. Since its inception, the greenhouse has become something of an oasis in the dry desert climate.”

Structure and equipment
In addition to the classic 20,000 square foot all-glass Venlo greenhouse structure (about four times the size of a professional basketball court), the project included a small main house. It took about a year to design and build. Prospiant also included a greenhouse foundation with in-slab heating: a necessity for cold, dry desert winters.

The Venlo greenhouse also collects harvested rainwater. It was part of Overstock’s mantra to use as many natural resources as possible in this environment.

“The greenhouse has now become an indispensable and central part of their concern for the well-being and health of their employees. Employees frequently go out to the greenhouse and help the head grower grow crops and learn how to grow their own food. It is now an essential aspect of their employee culture – and their corporate culture – to have this facility that is an integral part of their employees’ daily experience on campus.”

Custom project
The Overstock project was a smaller scale version of the large turnkey greenhouse projects that Prospiant usually undertakes. “But what was really personalized was their approach to involving employees in the growth process, which meant including features like raised beds,” John points out.

“The construction of a large commercial grow facility would not typically include raised beds, but they were incorporated here for ergonomic reasons and to improve the user experience. It also had the added benefit to make it easier to separate the soil between various types of plants. For example, the soil for tomatoes would be treated differently than for peppers or leafy greens. This is the only thing that differs from most commercial installation projects.

Since a working greenhouse produces fruits and vegetables, when a new person enters the space, they must follow the rules for disinfection of the greenhouse when entering through the main house. This means that visitors must go through a sanitary point to wash their hands and clean their shoes to eliminate the risk of them bringing in unwanted pests or diseases from outside.

Prospiant also designed the greenhouse to make it a little wider in the central aisle to create space for various activities such as yoga classes, community events and children’s learning.

Facility
Prospiant installed all in-house cultivation equipment and computerized automation systems. “So a big part of our role after construction included start-up training (which is done for all of our customers), in addition to all the computerized automation controls and greenhouse equipment,” John explains.

“Everything in the greenhouse is fully automated. During the commissioning process, we discussed everything with the head grower(s) and made sure everything was running smoothly. We made sure the customer knew the components and capabilities of the automation software, as it grows, this will allow them to refine their own automation “recipes” to drive everything automatically, or have the computer trigger various systems such as irrigation, lighting, cooling and heating. »

“The system installed in the Overstock Venlo greenhouse is state of the art. The irrigation function was also designed by Prospiant, as were the water harvesting and bench systems. Although we did not have made the grow beds, they were purchased through us.”

Utah gets lots of snow, but its climate is very arid, making it a tough environment for plants. The winters here are dry and water must be constantly pumped into the air for the plants to live and grow. otherwise, they will burn. Because the air is dry all year round and lacks moisture, water misting systems have been installed to add moisture to it to help plants grow. The misters also keep the inside of the greenhouse cool in the summer in the hot, dry desert climate.

HVAC and ventilation systems
This Venlo greenhouse didn’t need HVAC; as a standard greenhouse, it works by ventilation. Its roof vent and high-pressure water system cool the interior. As water is sprayed into the air, the air cools and falls to the ground, then the vents open to let the warmer air escape outside. “It’s a similar concept to forced recycling, but based on temperature,” says John. “It’s very durable and also has a low carbon footprint.”

“While these types of greenhouses are standard in the vegetable growing world, they’re just not typically used for the purpose of this project, which is to improve employee culture.”

Typically, a commercial tomato greenhouse would be built similarly but on a much larger scale. “This Overstock project, however, was more of a smaller-scale boutique-style miniature greenhouse.”

The location is also unique in that employees can take a train directly to the facility. “So there’s also this aspect of public transportation, which is quite rare in the United States. The train goes right past the greenhouse.”

With a project like this, the client is not so focused on the profitability of his products because the greenhouse itself is a showcase and the nice by-product is fresh and healthy vegetables for his kitchen and cafeteria. “This type of project is especially important at a time when companies are trying to retain their employees. As part of a growing trend, companies are trying to improve their work environments so that people are more likely to stay. Create a healthier, happier environment and a more vibrant company culture is a ‘win’ for everyone.”

Marion Turner is a distant relative of the Queen and has adorned her home with royal memorabilia. But for the funeral, she will set up a bench alone in front of the TV.

A comfortable seat in front of the living room TV, handkerchiefs close at hand and drinking “a whole bottle of Bailey’s” are how some royalists choose to mark the Queen’s funeral.

While watching the Monday night service together after witnessing 10 days of global mourning could be a chance for royal fans to share their emotions, many will mark the historic moment alone.

Recognizing such an important royal occasion is a priority for Marion Turner, 65, from Christchurch – she is a distant relative of the Queen, proud to say that ‘her mother’s uncle married the Queen’s second cousin’.

His Parklands home is unmistakably a shrine to Queen Elizabeth II.

Pictures, ornaments and miniature statues of the Queen, her servants and London Bridge adorn a window in a show of patriotism, while outside the Union Jack flies at half mast and a homemade banner “yards and yards long” hangs in front, “up to the window and across the front of the house,” she said.

“I had fun doing it, it looks really nice.”

Royal fans and the New Zealand delegation prepare for the state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.

For the funeral, Turner said she would have a “special meal” and dessert before feasting on a milk liqueur.

“I think I’ll have the whole bottle of Bailey’s tonight, because [the funeral] going all night,” she said with a cheeky little laugh.

Christchurch royalist Marion Turner lowered her Union Jack flag at half mast.

Christchurch royalist Marion Turner lowered her Union Jack flag at half mast.

The funeral begins at 10 p.m. New Zealand time and airs on TVNZ1 and Three, with special coverage starting at 7:30 p.m. on TVNZ1.

Two thousand world leaders, royals and friends of the Queen are expected at the state funeral at Westminster Abbey.

Lisbeth Clement, from Christchurch, is a die-hard fan of all things royal, having listened to the royal wedding of Prince Philip and Princess Elizabeth on the radio when she was just 5, catching a glimpse of the Queen Mother at the on his 100th birthday as he stood with crowds in London and shared a lengthy handshake with Prince Harry during his visit to Dunedin in 2015.

Souvenir spoons, magazines and books are just part of her huge horde of Royal Family memorabilia, but Monday night will be nothing but silent recognition, she said.

“I’m just going to sit here quietly by myself…and watch from 7:30 until the end.”

She said there would be tissues ready.

Royal superfan Lisbeth Clements will take a seat at the house to attend the Queen’s funeral, which would be “very emotional”, she said.

“It will be very emotional, but I can imagine myself being there because I’ve been there many times – I know what it’s like to be in the crowd.”

In the Christchurch suburb of Hornby, Anne Munro will also spend a dark evening.

Murno said he met the Queen in 1963 during a royal tour when she was chosen to serve her at the former United Service Hotel in Christchurch’s Cathedral Square.

“It was quite an honor to be chosen to serve her.”

Thousands of people paid their respects to the Queen as she lay in state inside Westminster Hall at the Palace of Westminster in London.

Thousands of people paid their respects to the Queen as she lay in state inside Westminster Hall at the Palace of Westminster in London.

He was shown how to curtsy to the Queen, “and it was finger touching at the time, you had to be finger touching,” Munro said.

She will have “many boxes of tissues” as she watches the funeral from the comfort of a La-Z-Boy chair.

“I am really very sad. We will never see his fellows again; she was unique.

Another Hornby resident, Avryll Sixtus, will ‘have a party…all by himself’ watching the funeral, she said.

She said she was “steeped” in royalty as a child, growing up in Windsor and regularly being taken to see the Changing of the Guard.

“I’ve had royals in my life, my whole life, and it’s been wonderful.”

MINNEAPOLIS — A federal grand jury has returned an indictment against a Coon Rapids man for making interstate threats against a U.S. senator.

According to court documents from June 11, 2022, 35 years old Brendon Daugherty left two voicemails on a US Senator’s field office phone outside of Minnesota. Both messages contained threats of violence directed at the US senator.

In his first message, Daugherty said, “You and the Republican Party should be proud that you are pushing me to become a domestic terrorist. Have a good [expletive] daytime; I can’t wait to kill you.

In his second post, Daugherty said, “I also just wanted to note, thank goodness the Republican Party is against gun control laws because it would keep guns out of the hands of a disabled person. and unstable like me, but you guys are totally against that. So maybe I can achieve my nefarious goals.

Field office personnel reported them to the United States Capitol Police.

On September 2, 2022, FBI special agents spoke to Daugherty at his home in Coon Rapids. Daugherty told officers he called the U.S. senator because the U.S. senator is “doing a bunch of stupid [expletive] with gun control,” and that he wants politicians to “feel a bit under pressure.

Daughter is charged with one count of threatening to murder a U.S. official and one count of interstate transmission of a threat.

Dear Cathy: I read your Newsday column religiously and hope you can help me with my cats. I have two tabbies who were adopted as kittens five years ago. They are brothers. About a year ago tabby “A” started bullying tabby “B”. “B” then started spraying and urinating around the house. The bullying had gotten so bad that “B” was urinating blood. I took “B” to the vet, where he was checked out and is now on a low dose of Xanax. “A” was also examined and declared healthy. “A” doesn’t hiss or growl as much. But “B” is still urinating in the house. I really don’t know what else to do. No suggestions? — Sandy, Glen Cove, NY

Dear Sandy: Since they are not sick, I propose to reintroduce them. I know they’ve been together for five years, but sometimes it can help to break them up and slowly reintroduce them. Give each cat their own room for a few days. Let each go out separately to walk around the house and check under the other cat’s door.

People also read…

After a few days, change the blanket so that he can adapt to his brother’s smell again. Then change rooms. When you feel they are comfortable with each other’s scent, let them sit in kennels in the same room but away from each other. If it goes well, then that day or another day, let them out of the kennel to engage again. If they fight, repeat the process, but take each step slower this time.

Also, “B” is on Xanax. Is “A” on something? There are calming chews for cats that promote relaxation and calm a cat’s anxiety. Maybe if “A” is calmer, there will be more peace between them.

I also recommend pluggable pheromones for a multi-cat household and pheromone collars for the next 90 days. Pheromones do not solve the problem, but can help calm anxious cats.

Dear Cathy: I have two female dogs: a Lab mix who is almost 5 years old and a Miniature Schnauzer who is 12 years old. Lately, the Lab has ridden the schnauzer. I’m curious to know why. Can you please give me some information about this behavior? — Bill, New York

Dear Bill: Dogs jostle for a variety of reasons, only one of which is for mating. If both of your dogs are neutered, whether female or male, they may bump into each other to display dominance over the other. Some dogs also do this as part of playtime or when really excited, which is why they may bump the leg of a newly arrived guest in your home.

When dogs play archery (when their front end goes down and their back end stays up) seconds after hitting another dog, she is trying to communicate to the other dog that this mounting behavior is great fun and that the other dog doesn’t need to be threatened by her.

But even when playing, many dogs don’t like to be ridden. The receiving dog may look sad or stressed, walk away, snap the other dog, or even start a fight. Unless both dogs do this back and forth while playing (which is acceptable behavior), chances are the schnauzer won’t like it and you should stop the Lab. Tell the lab to “drop” if it is trained to understand this command or to come to you when called. Your schnauzer may tolerate it more since they live together, but even two happy, friendly dogs can get into a tiff if one dog constantly bumps the other.

Dear Cathy: As for Wayne and his cat pooping in the tub, since the cat is 7 months old and stray, it may belong to someone who trained him to use the toilet. A sink or tub may look more like a toilet than a cat bed. Has he tried leaving the toilet seat up to see if she’ll use it? — Judy, Indiana

Dear Judy: This is a possibility I hadn’t considered, mainly because I guess most people train their cats with litter boxes. I think potty training can be stressful for cats because their instinct is to cover their waste and there’s no way to do that on a toilet seat. I’m curious, though. If any of my readers have toilet trained their cat, please let me know how he or she reacted to it.
