Couple Celebrated Wedding With A Halloween Theme

Published by:

For single people, marriage might seem like a scary idea but not for the newlywed from Windsor. The couple decided to skip the traditional white dress and there were no ringing church bells as well when Raymond McCurdy and his wife Lori decided to tie the knot a week before Halloween. To make their wedding a memorable one, they decided to go with a Halloween theme – spooky but romantic at the same time.

Lori shared that they have decided as a couple that they do not want a traditional wedding because they know that they are different and they want to have fun always, most especially on their special day. They chose the theme in order to avoid all the seriousness that a traditional wedding can bring.

All of their invited guests were asked to attend in their costumes and the ceremony was held inside a marquee that is decorated with cobwebs and adorned with skull lanterns. There was also a witch cauldron to add to the spookiness.

The guests came in different costumes such as ponies, pirates and cowboys. The photographer for the event was dressed up as Grim Reaper. Once the siren has sounded, their version of wedding bells, the groom Raymond came into view with his ghastly skull mask that is sporting a gap-toothed smile.

After the groom entered, the wedding party followed suit – all of whom are dressed in black and with a bouquets that are consists of roses in the colours of black and silver to match the theme.

The crowd left their seats in order to get a better view of the bride who came in with his flowing black bridal gown. What makes her overall appearance unique is that half of her face has been painted to show a skull with elaborate design while a portion of her hair has been shaved to resemble a cobweb pattern.

Raymond shared that he has always been fascinated with Halloween especially the idea of visiting haunted houses and trick or treating with kids in their costumes.

Innovations In Plastic Packaging

Published by:

A 3-day event will be held in Anaheim, CA for packaging and manufacturing professionals to showcase the latest in plastic packaging. The innovations that will be featured at PLASTEC West event include the following:

  • Duofold combination packaging from HLP Klearfold of New York includes a combination of the best attributes of clear, box-grade plastic and paperboard to create a truly distinctive visual packaging. The two different substrates allow for unique structural design that will not be possible by using paperboard or plastic alone. Each of the substrates is different in terms of visual, textural and tactile impressions.
  • Soft Crease on the other hand created a rigid film that can be used for multiple plastic carton panels or to make windows that can be used to wrap around multiple score lines. The structural design possibilities are unlimited in creating a strong shelve impact that is a combination of offset, flexo and/or paperboard panels or both. It also includes foil stamping and other decorating special effects applicable to both plastic and paperboard panels.
  • Lasersharp Flex Pack introduces the Prime Peel that allows packages to be easily opened and reclosed while maintaining the integrity of its contents. This new and efficient innovation can be considered as an accurate example of flexible packaging. Lasers are used to produce the peel and reclose packages with clean and accurate patterns.
  • Schur Star Concept has created flexible packaging in multiple bag formats without additional tooling costs. This flexible packaging solution allows quick changeover times to run multiple products or just one line without any setup times. The Schur bags are expected to meet all functionality requirements including all types of barrier capacities.

However, not all packaging requirements can be achieved through plastics. In spite the different innovations in packaging, there are still traditional packaging materials that can satisfactorily fulfill the demands of customers. An example is Paper Mart paper bags that meet the requirements of customers for recyclable and environmentally friendly packaging. Paper bags are cost effective and they are seen as a solution to the growing amount of packaging waste in the landfills. Paper bags can also be reused for other purposes aside from packaging.

How ISIS Lures The Youths Of The West

Published by:

For the past months since the extremist group ISIS came into power in Iraq and Syria, several Westerners have joined the group. So what prompted these young promising individuals to leave behind a great career and future and join the terror group?

Recently a group of Westerners joined the ISIS. These were medical students coming from America, Great Britain and Canada. This story is not new. Several young people give up their comfortable lives in the democratic West to join the terrorist group that forcefully declared itself as the governing body of the Islamic state in the Middle East.

Last February, it was also reported that three teenage girls from United Kingdom were en route to Syria in hopes of joining the radical group. There was no news that followed regarding the whereabouts of the three girls.

To date, at least 3,400 Westerners have already made their way to Iraq or Syria to take part in the cause of ISIS. This data was given by the director of the National Counterterrorism Center, Nicholas Rasmussen.
Given the overwhelming statistics, one cannot deny that ISIS has been successful in their campaign to lure the Westerners in joining them. How did they do this?

ISIS has eyes on the new generation

Most of the recruits of ISIS are young, vigorous, ambitious and adventurous teenagers trying to find their purpose in life and trying to make a unique mark.

ISIS campaigns to find new recruits by painting a picture of camaraderie, purposeful endeavor and respect. This propaganda is designed to boost the group’s self esteem and attract friends, colleagues and random teenagers to join the cause. An inviting adventure trip sets the trap for most of these youngsters.

What is even more alarming is that there are many recruits of the group that come from well off families and are educated. One recruit, Abu Anwar from Britain said that he had a good life in his hometown. Life was easy. He had a car and grew up in a middle class family. The problem was that you cannot practice the religion of Islam freely in Britain. He further pressed that he sees evil around him: homosexuality, rape, pedophiles and other crimes. For him, joining ISIS would be the most logical step to solve these societal problems.
