EXHIBITIONIST: Phoebe English showcased pieces from her fall 2019 women’s wear offering at the Morley Gallery in South London at an exhibition called “Inanimate, Animate. (Only) Half the Reflection,” a show in two parts, the second of which features 30 charming marionettes wearing to-scale pieces from her archive.
The person-sized clothes, which made their debut during the men’s shows last month in a presentation, were suspended from the ceiling on rotating mechanisms that afforded close-up inspection of the intricate techniques that have earned her a loyal following.
There was a black pinafore dress with T-shaped cuts outlined with wide satin stitch embroidery, and a delicate white mesh harness.
“We call this coat, ‘The Coat of Dreams (and of Nightmares)’,” said English, fondly nodding to a black topper made from a great many patches of recycled black fabric, each piece encased in fine silk tulle. The kind of deceptively simple, thing that a cursory glance sets the mind to thinking, “Right, black coat” but an up-close eye-ball reveals all its complexities.
The space was scented by Timothy Han, who used the aromas of birch tar and dry wheat from his “On the Road” fragrance to emphasize English’s focus on natural sustainable fabrics, and Johanna Burnheart performed
Phoebe English was thinking about sustainability this season. “I started the collection by working with the base of the material and just being really mindful about how it affects the environment,” she said of her men’s and women’s lines, which she showed together during London Fashion Week Men’s.
English used reclaimed fabrics in her women’s wear pieces in particular. She stuck to what worked best and presented a lineup of all-black pieces, which the designer said was what her clients gravitated toward. The all-black collection of patchwork skirts and coats channeled a “Witches of Eastwick” vibe. Up close, intricate details could be found, such as origami-style woven sleeves, gathered drop pockets and a gathered double neckline.
The men’s line featured gathered, elasticated cuffs on the sleeves and trouser legs. She paired black paneled trousers, with tops done in pink, rich blues and sunny amber.
She paid lots of attention to her materials, working with organic cotton and bamboo silk, working them into easy-to-wear cuts such as straight-leg trousers and boxy button down shirts or ones with high-neck mandarin or notched collars. It was a no-fuss, no muss and universally appealing men’s collection.
Whether you’re new to anime and seeking an accessible entry point, a longtime fan who could use a break from reading subtitles, or just looking for an excuse to revisit a classic show in a fresh way, a quality English dub has a lot to offer. As such, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite anime dubs. Please note we opted to keep movies off this list in favor of specifically highlighting the best English dubbed shows.
Check out our picks for the 10 best English dubbed anime series in the slideshow below, or scroll down to see the list.
Dragon Ball is without question one of the most popular and recognizable anime franchises outside of Japan, and Funimation’s spectacular English dub of Dragon Ball Z is a huge reason why. Centered around Goku, who’s voiced by the wildly talented Sean Schemmel, DBZ chronicles the adventures of the aforementioned super powerful Saiyan and his friends as they fight to protect humanity from various alien threats. While yes, Dragon Ball Z is known for its crazy, over-the-top action, its beloved cast of eccentric and unforgettable characters is what has truly made Dragon Ball the phenomenon it is today. This is due in no small part to the involvement of one of the most prolific and talented voice actors ever, Christopher Sabat, who does an unbelievable job bringing multiple characters from the series, including Vegeta and Piccolo, to life. — Alex Osborn

Daley, 22, and Black, 42, wed Saturday at the Bovey Castle on Dartmoor, a five-star resort in Devon, England. The couple, who got engaged in 2015, confirmed the news with a pair of heartfelt Instagram posts.
“We shared the day with 120 of our closest friends and family,” Daley, who called Black “the love of my life,” wrote.
A number of tabloids, including The Sun, reported that the pair had re-enacted a scene from William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” as part of their nuptials. But Daley appeared to nix that rumor, using the hashtag #NoRomeo in the caption to his snapshot.
Black, who won an Oscar for 2008’s “Milk,” was similarly cheeky in his post, asking followers, “So… what did you do this weekend?”
“He’s been through so many hard times in his life,” she said of her friend. “It’s so nice that he’s had his happy ending.” She called the wedding “brilliant,” adding, “Obviously, the location was incredible but everything else was really relaxed, it was just so normal.”
In 2016, Black and Daley opened up about their relationship in a candid interview for Out magazine’s annual “Love Issue.”
“It was one of the first times that I felt, ‘Oh my God, this isn’t just a thing where I am attracted to someone. This is someone that I’ve connected with on a whole new level,’” Daley, who came out in a YouTube video shortly after he and Black began dating in 2013, said. “It was new for me, and that was when I thought, ‘Sh*t, I’m in trouble here.’”
Black acknowledged his immediate connection to Daley, but said he was initially hesitant about the relationship.
“I slowly started to let myself fall in love,” he said, “but it was a process.”

Medical writing tells us a great deal about how the language of science has developed in constructing and communicating knowledge in English. This volume provides a new perspective on the evolution of the special language of medicine, based on the electronic corpus of Early Modern English Medical Texts, containing over two million words of medical writing from 1500 to 1700. The book presents results from large-scale empirical research on the new materials and provides a more detailed and diversified picture of domain-specific developments than any previous book. Three introductory chapters provide the sociohistorical, disciplinary and textual frame for nine empirical studies, which address a range of key issues in a wide variety of medical genres from fresh angles. The book is useful for researchers and students within several fields, including the development of special languages, genre and register analysis, (historical) corpus linguistics, historical pragmatics, and medical and cultural history.

In the year 2001, I perfected an old time favorite recipe of English toffee. I call it “Rocalicious” because it is my version of Almond Roca and it is o so delicious! The toffee is made with the highest quality: all natural ingredients, no artificial flavors, and there are no preservatives added. Due to the fact that this delicacy is all natural, it is at its best when it is fresh. Therefore, we suggest it is stored in the freezer where it will not lose its crunchiness if left out. In the beginning the toffee was distributed as gifts to family and friends for the holidays and special occasions. It became surprisingly popular. Many people raved about how delicious Rocalicious is and suggested that I market this product and let the rest of the world taste “the best English Toffee they have ever tasted.” On account of an overwhelming demand and a steady stream of compliments concerning Rocalicious candy, I was motivated to venture out and start the business I now call, Paraiso Delicacies. Rocalicious candy is available in approx. 3 oz. candy bars. Great for any special occasion, the holidays as stocking stuffers, gifts, fundraisers, “Thank You’s”, “I Love You’s”, and party favors.

Titus wants to be a good dog in his new home on the farm, but he can’t figure out what that means; when he tries to board the school bus with the children, chase mice or lay eggs, or help the farmers plow and milk, all he hears is “”No, no, dogs don’t…”” What DO dogs do? Titus learns at last that night, when he spots a fox sneaking up to the henhouse. Halpern’s neat, brightly lit cloth-and-paper collages make perfect accompaniments to this simply told story; the widely spaced farm buildings are set on a grassy hill dotted with flowers, and Titus, golden, flop-eared, the picture of puppylike confusion, draws the eye even when the point of view is pulled back.

What began as the language of the Angles, Saxons, and Jutes on a small island has become a global property owned and shaped by almost 2 billion English speakers across the world. English has borrowed words from more than 350 languages, and many more languages have borrowed words from English. In an age of cheap air travel and internet communication we have become a global village. If you’ve ever been curious about the global language that binds us all together, this book is for you.
Typee (1846; in full: Typee: A Peep at Polynesian Life) is American writer Herman Melville’s first book, partly based on his actual experiences as a “beachcomber” on Nuku Hiva (which Melville spelled as Nukuheva) in the South Pacific Marquesas Islands and the title comes from a valley there called Tai Pi Vai. It was Melville’s most popular work during his lifetime; for 19th century readers his career seemed to go downhill afterwards, but during the early 20th century it was seen as just the beginning of a career that peaked with Moby-Dick (1851). —————————————————————–** Check Out More Great Titles From Penny Books **—————————————————————–Simply click on “Penny Books (Editor)” under the title to see a full list of all of our great discounted books!!New titles are being added daily, so be sure to check back often to find more great discounted books!!

Not illustrated. 1913 edition. Excerpt: …of the printed page in calling the attention of the reader to something new or different. They may be single words or phrases: as moreover and furthermore, indicating the addition of new material of like bearing and quality as the old; meanwhile, the sign of something different happening at the same time; hence, therefore, and other words of inference, deduction, and conclusion; as we have seen, referring to the past and anticipating a restatement in different terms; now, consider a moment, calling for new attention; and the many other transitional phrases constantly in use. Transitions may also be complete sentences, looking forward or backward or, as in the opening sentence of the present paragraph, both forward (in the main clause) and backward (in the appositive clause). Sentences of this kind are sometimes called topical, in that they state the subject or topic of the paragraph or of several paragraphs. Such topical statements do about the same thing,–but less mechanically,–as titles, italics, and black letter type in the display of text-books. Topical statements are common in argumentative and expository writing, but are probably not so common in narrative. There are also end transitions, which may often take the form of a summary, or a conclusion, or both. As paragraphs with topical statements are sometimes called deductive in that a general statement is followed by examples and detail, so a paragraph with endings is sometimes called inductive because a series of details may be followed by a general statement. These terms are evidently used with great looseness; for such paragraphs are rarely deductive or inductive in any strict sense of the term. For example, the inductive ending of the present paragraph is to be no…

As in centuries gone-by, the English Toy Spaniel makes a charming and sophisticated companion for the right owner or family. The Charlie, as the breed is affectionately known-in honor of King Charles II, the breed’s most famous ally-is distinctive for his well-domed head, flat and feathered ears, and his pug nose. Owners are spoiled for choice, as the breed comes in four distinct color patterns (solid ruby, chestnut and white, black and tan, or tricolored). This Comprehensive Owner’s Guide opens with a chapter on the breed’s history, retelling the breed’s beginnings in England and featuring a special section on the history of the breed in America, written by breeder and artist, Michael Allen. The chapter on the breed’s characteristics is focused on helping a potential owner decide whether or not the Charlie is the right toy dog to bring into his or her life, considering the breed’s personality and physical traits, health concerns, and special requirements. For most responsible dog owners, the Charlie fits well into a home with well-behaved children and makes an amenable, easy-to-live-with canine chum for all members of the household. New owners will welcome the well-prepared chapter on finding a reputable breeder and selecting a healthy, sound puppy. Chapters on puppy-proofing the home and yard, purchasing the right supplies for the puppy as well as house-training, feeding, and grooming are illustrated with photographs of handsome adults and puppies. In all, there are over 135 full-color photographs in this useful and reliable volume. The author’s advice on obedience training will help the reader better mold and train into the most well-mannered dog in the neighborhood. The extensive and lavishly illustrated chapter on healthcare provides up-to-date detailed information on selecting a qualified veterinarian, vaccinations

Devi (Salman Khan) is an adrenaline junkie. He lives for the kick of things. At first, the mayhem is reasonably innocent. He’s high strung, never sitting still. He gets in fights. Mixed-martial arts kind of fights: he’s a great roundhouse kicker, as well. He argues – the outcome doesn’t matter – because he likes to pit himself against others. Because he’s charismatic, it’s almost an endearing trait. The problem is, he can’t stay in one job. Incredibly educated and accomplished, he’s left over 30 jobs. When he falls suddenly and cataclysmically in love with a psychiatrist, Shaina (Jacqueline Fernandez) who lives in Poland, all hell breaks loose. All that passion, all that wackiness, it drives a wedge between them. They part, and her heart is broken.
Her parents have brokered her a marriage with Himanshu (Radeep Hooda). He’s an up and coming cop. They meet and talk. They quickly realize they have no love connection. She tells him of her time in India with Devi. As we see in flashback, it’s a dashing, romantic, and, ultimately, a doomed tale. He tells her of the Devil, a criminal mastermind that he’s chasing. His other successes mean nothing if he can’t nail the guy. Their stories intersect in an ingenious way.
“Kick,” written by Raiat Arora, directed by Sajid Nadiadwala isn’t just an action film with a potent kick. It’s also a reminder to not question what someone does but why one does it. It’s sets you up thinking it’s a battle between a diabolically clever criminal and a remarkably effective cop. The prize is not just all the money Devi makes off with. It’s also Shaina’s hand. The fight scenes, the cat and mouse games, they’re all captivating in their energy and execution. We root for Himanshu, while we’ve come to wonder why Devi, of whom no one prior had ever said a bad word, could turn so evil. Appearances, though, are deceiving.
Khan is a formidable Devi. He’s got the muscles, the brains and, as we learn, the heart of a hero. Like all junkies, he wants nothing out of life but the next rush. He sticks up for the underdog, especially, as you’ll see, at the end. He takes out a band of thugs disrespecting a woman. He’s fearless, engaging, and awe-inspiring. You get the sense that he holds nothing back in his characterization of the once lovable, now despised Devi.
Minus one notable quality, Hooda’s Himanshu is the appropriate adversary for Khan’s Devi. He’s intelligent, meticulous, and relentless. Though it’s not apparent at first, they both share a desire to serve and protect. The one thing that Khan’s Devi has that Hooda’s Himanshu doesn’t is this craziness (to see where it comes from, check out his parents, played by Archana Puran Singh and Mithun Chakraborty) that propels him ever forward. Fernandez’s Shaina is enchanting as the beautiful, successful career woman who mourns a lost love. Her transformation in one of the song and dance scenes from mousy, glasses wearing psychiatrist to sumptuous sex kitten is breathtaking.
Nadiadwala fits the story with a well-adjusted adrenaline pump. The film perfectly balances the action scenes (bus chases, jumping out of skyscraper windows, battles royale) with the love scenes. The climax turns into a rainbow of discovery. We learn something about the Devil that is almost angelic.
Watching Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (Humpty Sharma’s Bride), a Bollywood romantic comedy written and directed by Shashank Khaitan, is like watching soccer. It’s got a huge playing field, the clock keeps ticking, and there’s always something going on. You don’t necessarily notice the director’s nuances, the actor’s characterizations, or the plot’s intricacies. But you do feel how everything blends together, melodic, rhythmic, and colorful. You get swept up in the enchantment of the spectacle’s bumpy road to love story.
It’s been decreed that Kavya Pratap Singh (Alia Bhatt) will marry Angad (Siddharth Shukla), an Indian doctor who works in the United States. Though the family’s well off, her father, Mr. Singh (Ashutosh Rana), won’t buy her a designer dress for her wedding. Headstrong and spirited, to put it mildly, she goes to Delhi. Not only does she intend to buy the dress she covets, she intends to make the money to buy it herself. In Delhi, she meets Rakesh “Humpty” Sharma (Varun Dhawan). He’s handsome, charming and, as we learn early on in a scene in a public restroom, single. He has a posse, Shonty (Gaurav Pandey) and Poplu (Sahil Vaid). They indulge if outright admire his success with women. Kavya and Humpty meet when he and his chums have tied her uncle, his professor, to a tree. He needs a passing grade to please his father, Mr. Sharma (Kenny Desai). Despite the inauspicious beginning, sparks fly, most notably when she bests him in a drinking contest.
The film plays out their on-again, off-again romance. He has her, he doesn’t. He sort-of does. Then, on her father’s orders, he almost get killed by Ranjit (Aditya Sharma), Kavya’s brother. Before it arrives at the inevitable (see the title) and enchanting conclusion, the film is magical and violent, hopeful and sad. Metaphorically and literally, it’s the stuff of song. Throughout the film, the on-again bits seem ordained from heaven and the off-again bits seem destined for hell.
Bhatt manages to be radiant, feisty, and stubborn at the same time she plays the role of the mostly-obedient Dutiful Daughter. She has a cornucopia of riveting facial expressions. There’s the Don’t even think about hitting on me face. There’s the I don’t care what you say, I’m wearing a designer dress at my wedding face. And, best of all, there’s the radiant I want to spend the rest of my life with you face. Even if it were a silent film, you’d know precisely what’s on her mind. She’s perfectly cast next to Dhawan’s Humpty. Though Dhawan himself is a firecracker, to watch his cataclysmic fall from anything goes playboy to monogamous swain is both startling and moving.
As Kavya’s sister Swati, Mahnaz Damania is like a morning moon to Bhatt’s sun. You notice her around the edges of the film. Even before you knew her backstory, you knew there was more than met the eye. You could argue, in fact, that Damania’s character is the most interesting, that her performance is the most complicated. Against her father’s wishes, she married for what she thought was love. The subsequent divorce brought shame on the family, and especially on Mr. Singh. It was up to Kavya to show that it is possible to make a good marriage based on love.
