Huskies looking to reach .500 record with win over Dawson

first_imgThis Friday, Oct. 28, the Fort St. John Huskies will be back at home, after playing four consecutive games on the road, and will be welcoming rival Dawson Creek Junior Canucks to the Energetic City.This will be the second meeting between the two clubs, with Fort St. John winning the first game on Oct.15 in Dawson Creek by a score of 9-5.With regards to the NWJHL standings, the Huskies sit in fifth place with a 3-4 record, while Dawson Creek occupies the sixth spot with a 1-7 record. The huskies currently lead the Junior Canucks by 4 points in the standings.- Advertisement -However, looking upward in the standings, the pups only trail the fourth place Sexsmith Vipers by a single point. The Vipers do not play this weekend, so a win by the Huskies would have them leapfrog the Vipers and overtake fourth place by a single point.Robbie Sidhu is continuing to show he can produce points, as the forward currently leads the team with 18 points (8 goals, 10 assists) in the seven games played so far. Cody Hildebrand is second in scoring with 13 points (5 goals, 8 assists), with rookie defensemen Dave Marshell being the only other player on the team with points in the double digits. Marshell has 10 points (4 goals, 6 assists) but has also only played five games with the team.Friday’s game will take place at the North Peace Arena and the puck drops at 8 p.m. Advertisementlast_img read more

Sentencing policies for drug use to be reviewed

first_img…as Govt announces study on treating drug abuse as health issueBy Jarryl BryanFollowing successive years of prison disasters that culminated in the burning down of most of the Camp Street Prison, Government is now taking steps to address the underlying issues of prison overcrowding and unrest.These include a review of the policies for persons who are placed before the courts for drug use.The system and policies for drug use, including marijuana, will be up for reviewSpeaking during the presentation of the 2018 Budget, Finance Minister Winston Jordan related that a study would be done in 2018 to see how to treat drug abuse as a health issue within the criminal justice system.“In 2018, we will be conducting a study on appropriate treatments for substance abuse as a health issue within the criminal justice system. This will inform our interaction with the Judiciary, as we assist in developing policies to reduce over-reliance on imprisonment. Probation services will also be strengthened to support this paradigm shift.”The current system, he said, which incarcerates a person for the usage of harmful substances would be re-examined. “Our people need our compassion and our help so that they can be rehabilitated and given the support they need to live healthy and productive lives,” Jordan also related.According to Guyana’s Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (Control) Act, once someone is summarily convicted of being in possession of any narcotic, they are liable to be imprisoned for at least three years and at most, five years. There is also a fine attached to such conviction.Talk about decriminalising marijuana gained new life in 2015 after the public outcry over the sentencing of football coach Vibert Butts to three years’ imprisonment for having 46 grams of cannabis in his possession.But there have been other cases, including a grandmother, Ramraji Deonarine, who was sentenced to three years in prison and fined $15,000 earlier this year, after she was found guilty of smuggling six grams of cannabis sativa into a prison.Last March, a fire had raged through the Camp Street Prison and claimed the lives of 17 prisoners. Afterwards, a Commission of Inquiry, which cost the treasury some $13 million was ordered by President David Granger.According to the report compiled by the Commissioners, the combination of overcrowded, uncomfortable and unhygienic confinement is ideal for epidemics, for gangs to prosper and to propagate discontent.Moreover, the CoI found that reducing numbers in prisons to manageable levels is the single most important priority for establishing safe, humane and purposeful prisons. In the wake of another fire in July, which gutted the wooden section of the Camp Street prison, the need to reduce the prison population was further emphasised to the Government.Alternative sentencingOf recent, one of the recommendations coming out of a study that examined alternatives to incarceration for pre-trial detainees was for Guyana to establish a Sentencing Council. According to the final draft report, this could help to address the problems associated with the increase in the prison population.The report, which was submitted to Government, was prepared by consultant Peter Pursglove under the Citizen Security Strengthening Programme (CSSP) of the Public Security Ministry. It stated that there was a lack of clear and coherent sentencing policies.According to Pursglove in his final draft report, his recommendation is due to the importance and complexity of sentencing and the magnitude of the task to be accomplished by the various agencies involved in the criminal justice system.The consultant emphasised that there was a need in Guyana for a permanent and specially constituted body to oversee the entire sentencing process, and ensure effective coordination of consistent sentencing policy.In providing an insight as to what may constitute a Sentencing Council to be established here, the consultant said that it would include the provision of guidance to Judges And Magistrates; the gathering and provision of information and statistics for monitoring; planning and policy development; and engaging the community by informing and consulting the public.last_img read more

EASTER SAFER DRIVING MESSAGE FROM AN GARDA SIOCHANA

first_imgEASTER SAFER DRIVING MESSAGE FROM AN GARDA SIOCHANA: As we head into the Easter Bank Holiday we must face the fact that tragically, 48 lives have already been lost on Irish roads in 2013. This represents 14 more than this time last year. In addition 107 people have suffered serious injuries as a result of a road traffic collision.We have seen a reduction in road deaths every year since 2006, which has led to Ireland becoming one of the safest countries in Europe in terms of road safety.Although 162 people tragically lost their lives in 2012, it was the lowest figure ever recorded since records began. The reality now is we may end up with more than 162 road deaths by the end of 2013 if this upsurge in fatalities continues unabated. This cannot be allowed to happen, and we are appealing to every road user to take maximum care on our roads to ensure we reverse this increase in fatalities. Drivers in particular have accounted for 29 of the 47 people killed on our roads to date, and as such are over- represented compared to other road user categories. In addition:-• Over half of these fatal collisions occurred between 8pm and 4am• Over half were single vehicle collisions• More than three quarters were on roads with a speed limit of 80kph or more. Bearing in mind the cold weather predicted over the next couple of days we ask that all drivers recognise the necessity to slow down, always wear their seatbelt, never drive whilst tired and never, ever drink and drive.Assistant Commissioner Gerard Phillips said today: “We are up 14 road deaths today compared to this time last year. If we do not rectify this increase in road deaths immediately, we risk the very real possibility of having an increase in road deaths in Ireland for the first time in 7 years. It took a lot of hard work to make Ireland one of the safest countries in Europe in terms of road safety – we don’t want to lose that accolade. We now ask that every road user continues to help us to make our roads safer, and reverse the situation we find ourselves in today. We all need to examine our actions on the road and ensure that we take every precaution to protect ourselves and others.”Commissioner Phillips continued: “Many people will be travelling to many parts of the country by car this Easter weekend, and we know to date, drivers are over-represented in fatalities compared to other road users. Over half of the driver fatalities occurred between 8pm and 4am and were single vehicle collisions, whilst more than three quarters occurred on roads with a speed limit of 80kph or more. We therefore must appeal to drivers in particular to get the basics right:-slow down, never drink and drive, always use your seatbelt and never drive whilst tired.”Mr. Noel Brett, Chief Executive, Road Safety Authority said: “Weekends are a high risk time on our roads. We want you to enjoy the break, but to do so responsibly. If you decide to drink, plan ahead – leave the keys at home and designate a driver or use public transport. Make sensible decisions and don’t put your family and others through the grief of losing a loved one. Vulnerable road users also need to take precautions over the bank holiday weekend. Pedestrians, motorcyclists and cyclists should wear something that will make them stand out to other road-users, particularly in conditions of poor weather and poor visibility. Fluorescent materials are most effective during the day and reflective materials at night. Pedestrians are advised in particular to take extra care and not to walk home if they are under the influence of alcohol.”There were 48 people killed on the roads as of March 28. 29 of these were drivers.9 of these were pedestrians.5 of these were passengers.3 of these were motorcyclists. 2 of these were pedal cyclists.Out of 29 driver fatalities, 18 were as a result of a single vehicle collision.12 drivers were killed on roads with an 80 km/h speed limit.12 drivers were killed on roads with either 100 or 120 Km/h speed limit.16 drivers were killed between the hours of 8pm and 4am.Easter Holidays 2012 (Friday-Monday, April 6 – 9)Fatalities 1Serious Injuries 5Minor injuries 75EASTER SAFER DRIVING MESSAGE FROM AN GARDA SIOCHANA was last modified: March 28th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:EASTER SAFER DRIVING MESSAGE FROM AN GARDA SIOCHANAlast_img read more

DePodesta applies pressure

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Meanwhile, Pittsburgh general manager Dave Littlefield told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review on Tuesday that while he hasn’t yet contacted Tracy about the Pirates’ managerial vacancy, he did have a conversation with Tracy’s Houston- based agents, Alan and Randy Hendricks. Tracy is believed to be the leading candidate, and possibly the only real candidate. But Tracy getting another job will only save DePodesta about $700,000 off next year’s expenditures. Given that at least one source with knowledge of the situation said the Dodgers player payroll probably will dip to the $80 million range next season and given the fact DePodesta will be hamstrung by a lot of the unwieldy contracts he gave out last winter the prospects for the Dodgers dramatically improving themselves between now and next spring are questionable, at best. That is why Tracy was unwilling to manage the Dodgers next season without a contract extension. It also is why DePodesta might be as busy this off-season as he was last winter. On the field, the needs are simple. The Dodgers need a power-hitting first baseman, a power-hitting third baseman, a power-hitting left fielder and a power-hitting right fielder. They won’t get all four. They would prefer at least three. But just getting two would be a marked improvement, and would afford more lineup flexibility to Glenn Hoffman, Art Howe, Kevin Kennedy or whoever gets tabbed to move into Tracy’s old office. No significant money will be spent on starting pitching, where even with Jeff Weaver likely to depart through free agency DePodesta seems content with a nucleus of Derek Lowe, Brad Penny and Odalis Perez. The bullpen, assuming Eric Gagne comes back healthy and either Yhency Brazoban or Duaner Sanchez can handle the setup role, will get only minor tinkering. The biggest need for an overhaul, though, might not be on the infield or in the outfield but in the clubhouse. Stories were told quietly throughout the season of internal strife, although that usually is the case with all losing clubs and even with some winning ones. The late-August blowup between second baseman Jeff Kent and center fielder Milton Bradley, which almost certainly is going to lead to Bradley being traded or non-tendered this winter, has been well- chronicled. But there were countless other incidents that went unreported, most of which never would have been tolerated in a clubhouse patrolled by Paul Lo Duca, Shawn Green and Robin Ventura. And that is where DePodesta’s biggest adjustment is called for. The Dodgers clearly need a disciplinarian in the manager’s office, one that won’t look the other way while players run to the clubhouse between at-bats to check messages on their cell phones. They also need clubhouse leaders with a different approach from the anti-social Jeff Kent, guys who can build enough good will with younger teammates that those teammates will be receptive when offered constructive criticism. Those, of course, are intangibles something DePodesta’s computer-generated statistical analyses can’t quantify. Those close to DePodesta say he has gotten better at listening to the people around him and actually applying their input to his decisions. That could have something to do with being blamed for much of what went wrong in 2005. It also could have something to do with what is likely to happen if this ship isn’t back on course in 2006, even though DePodesta still will have two years left on his contract. It isn’t that far, after all, from where DePodesta sits to where Tracy sits. Tracy appears to be on the verge of landing on his feet, his reward for four winning seasons in five years and winning a division title. DePodesta, who presided over that division-winning club then systematically dismantled it, would seem to have farther to fall. Tony Jackson can be reached at (818) 713-3675. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! LOS ANGELES — Two days ago, when Paul DePodesta got the result you had to think he always wanted, the Dodgers general manager also turned up the thermostat a few degrees in his own office. He won’t have Jim Tracy to kick around anymore, so everything that happens in Dodgerland between now and the end of DePodesta’s reign will reflect directly on himself. The just-completed disaster of a 2005 season, during which the Dodgers went 71-91 and finished a distant fourth in the embarrassingly awful National League West, also reflects the general direction of DePodesta, a fact that can’t possibly be lost on owner Frank McCourt. center_img DePodesta’s first step toward redemption, then, will be his first hiring of a manager, something that will take place sometime this month. The search doesn’t figure to take long; DePodesta said Monday he has had a short list in mind since including an escape clause in the contract Tracy signed a year ago. The names on that short list is anybody’s guess for now, although DePodesta promised to make it public when candidates are interviewed. DePodesta was not available for comment on Tuesday. last_img read more

Marching band scheduled to perform at Fiesta Bowl

first_imgLA PUENTE – Although Nogales High School’s marching band has been rehearsing and performing the same nine-minute field show since July, it still squeezed in an extra practice during winter break. “We’re trying to make this show perfect,” said assistant band director James Plunkett. Every detail, every step and every note must be flawless when the 120-student band competes at the Fiesta Bowl National Band Championship in Phoenix on Sunday. The invitation-only competition features 15 high school bands nationwide and is one of many Fiesta Bowl festivities, which concludes Monday with the Ohio State vs. Notre Dame football game. “It’s a big deal for Rowland Unified School District and Nogales High School,” said band director Brad Pollack. “It’s getting our name out there and Nogales’ reputation in a positive way.” Nogales’ band, known as the Noble Regiment, also will be marching in the Fiesta Bowl parade, which is watched by 400,000 people. It is performing an original show called “Chain Reactions” by John Meehan. Pollock described it as the breaking apart and coming together of music and visuals. The four-hour band practices on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays usually start with stretching, warm-up and a mile run to raise endurance and lung strength. In some parts of the show, students have to move fast and play their instrument at the same time, said Michelle Blanchard, who will help teach the band in January. “It’s very much like an athlete, the same conditioning an athlete would go through,” Blanchard said. The four-day trip to Phoenix costs about $600 per student. After fundraisers, students will pay about $100 each. Students said they’re excited about going to the Fiesta Bowl. Some of them performed there two years ago, when the band was first invited to compete. But this year in particular has been an incredible season, Pollock said. “They work really hard, and rehearsals have been … 99 percent pleasant and fun,” Pollock said. The entire band staff told him they’ve enjoyed coming to work this year, Pollock added. Senior Jennifer Ortiz, who plays the trumpet, said she doesn’t mind the long rehearsals, and her band friends are like a second family. Even though they’ve been playing the same music for several months, the practices don’t get boring. Sophomore Adura Awosika added: “When you play it more, you get better and better, and you like it more.” In the end, the long hours of practice are worth it, said senior Gina Colacion. “After you perform, there’s a feeling you get of accomplishment.” esther.chou@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2513 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SA, Algeria to push trade, investment

first_img8 May 2013 South Africa and Algeria have agreed to speed up the establishment of a joint trade and investment committee to engage with the public and private sectors of both countries to do more business between them. The agreement followed a meeting between South African Deputy Trade and Industry Minister Elizabeth Thabethe and Algerian Trade Minister Mustapha Benbada in Algiers on Monday. Thabethe said the committee would allow senior officials from both countries to discuss and agree on a programme of trade and investment projects to pursue. The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has proposed that the committee focus initially on agriculture, infrastructure, industry and investment. “Each of these sectors are key job drivers, and I believe if both countries concentrate on these sectors a lot can be accomplished and mutually beneficial business linkages can be created,” Thabethe said. She also encouraged Algerian companies to invest in South Africa, especially in projects related to the country’s multi-billion rand state-led infrastructural drive. Thabethe was in Algeria with a delegation of South African businesspeople on an export promotion mission. Benbada said that he appreciated Thabethe’s initiative in undertaking the mission, and welcomed the move to strengthen trade and investment relations with South Africa. According to the DTI, Algeria was South Africa’s leading north African export destination between 2008 and 2012, with total exports of R8.1-billion outweighing imports of R672-million over the period.

‘Shabba’ on Bafana, 2010 and now

first_img12 June 2013Tuesday marked the third anniversary of the 2010 Fifa World Cup, a day on which Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala wrote his name in the history books by becoming the first player to score in the first World Cup held in Africa. His memorable, scorching strike was a fitting opener for the occasion.Tshabalala is currently in camp with Bafana Bafana in Yaounde, Cameroon where the team is preparing for a crucial World Cup qualifying match against Ethiopia in Addis Ababa on Sunday, 16 June. He took time out to chat to the South African Football Association’s (Safa) media officer Matlhomola Morake about the 2010 Fifa World Cup.Safa Media: Special day today, what memories do you have about it?Tshabalala: It is a special day indeed as it marks exactly three years since I played my first World Cup tournament, the first ever World Cup tournament to be hosted in Africa. More significantly, I scored the opening goal of the tournament against quality opposition like Mexico.To this day, the move that led to the goal, the goal itself, the atmosphere and the celebrations thereafter still play in my head as though it happened yesterday. It is one of those memories etched in my mind and will not go away. I felt very privileged to be in the squad and will forever be grateful for that opportunity.I believe I left a huge legacy and trust that people will forever remember this day which I will always call “The Shabba Day”. I am truly blessed to have not only played on that day but also scored a goal. It remains the most special moment of my life.Safa Media: Please describe to us the atmosphere.Tshabalala: It was electrifying, and after the goal it was great to see so many South Africans brought together by a common purpose – sport, football in particular. It is an indescribable feeling, the kind where you had to be there to feel it.The tournament really united the country. I want to believe that all the players who took part in the tournament will forever cherish that moment.Safa Media: Has your life improved since the 2010 Fifa World Cup?Tshabalala: A lot of things have happened since then. I have won numerous individual awards, featured in various adverts, been invited to places and events I never in my wildest dreams thought I would go to. And I have to be grateful for that, largely thanks to the World Cup.People have shown a lot of respect towards me due to the goal and the way I played. Three years later, I am still in the national team, which indicates I am doing something right. Also, I am still playing for a big team in South Africa (Kaizer Chiefs) and recently won the league and a domestic cup (Nedbank Cup). I have played about 95 percent of the games for club, and haven’t missed out much except when I was injured. So I am happy with my progress so far.Safa Media: You are a fan favourite, wherever you go fans still shout your name, even here in Cameroon, how do you keep that balance of not letting fame go to your head?Tshabalala: It is humbling when you go to a foreign country and people acknowledge you and show you some respect. I feel blessed. I really appreciate the people’s feelings towards me. It is vital to keep my feet firmly on the ground though. Fame will come and go, but when one is humble, that is the important thing because humility makes one go far.Safa Media: 11 June 2013 came a few days after you scored a goal to keep SA’s chances of going to Brazil alive.Tshabalala: The goal I scored against the Central African Republic (CAR) is an important one as it helped the team to be in a better position, and also have a better goal difference. But it is all about teamwork and that is the main thing that has kept us going strong as a national team. We work with and for each other. Those not playing push those on the field to do better. There is a lot of camaraderie which is key because we do not have special players but are all equal.Safa Media: Ethiopia will be a lot different to CAR.Tshabalala: The win against CAR was vital as we now go to Ethiopia very motivated, but we know there is still a lot of work to be done. They are top of the group, which tells you they are a formidable side. Also, they are playing at home, which will make our mission even tougher. But we are professionals and I believe we are up to the challenge.We know what is at stake here. We must just work harder than in the first match to realise our goals. With the win against CAR, we are in the right frame of mind. We are confident but not over-confident.Safa Media: You are the most experienced player in the current squad with 78 caps, how much pressure does that put you under?Tshabalala: Fortunately, we are a group of players that are very experienced and do not look at caps but work as a team. We have been working very well together up to this point. There are several senior players in the team and we all encourage each other to better our game and take the responsibility when the need arises.Safa Media: More caps to follow?Tshabalala: I will continue to do the best I can for my club and country. I really appreciate the opportunity I have been given to be part of Bafana Bafana. It is the stuff that dreams are made of. I am on 78 caps and I will take it one game at a time and hopefully also reach the magical 100 caps.Safa Media: With Botswana and CAR eliminated, this game is must win for us.Tshabalala: Definitely, I am glad the first obstacle (CAR) is out of the way. Now there is a bigger hurdle that we should overcome. We know they might come at us to unsettle us from the first whistle. We need to be calm and not panic, but play our normal game of ball possession and close them down quickly when we lose the ball.This is a very important match for us as we all want to see ourselves playing in Brazil 2014. We have tasted how it feels to be there, representing our country on a bigger stage and would not want to miss out. This is one battle that we need to win and we will do our best to get a positive result.Safa Media: Dreams of playing abroad.Tshabalala: At the moment I am happy where I am and with how my career is going. I turned professional in 2004/05 in the colours of Free State Stars. We got relegated and I got my first call up while playing in the first division. Obviously my dream was to play abroad, but I always tell myself that I should not force matters. That will come when the time is right and if it does happen I will grab the opportunity with both hands. But if it does not happen, life goes on.I had offers from overseas, but I felt they were not right because I do not want to leave for the sake of leaving. Right now I am enjoying my football at Chiefs and at 29 I should start thinking about planning for my future – life after football.Safa Media: Message to the fans who have been with you.Tshabalala: I really appreciate and value their support. My journey has been long but very exciting. I have had obstacles that I had to overcome to get to where I am. When my form dropped, I got the stick because most fans knew my abilities. I have learned to be strong and take positives out of the whole situation and move on.So I am really grateful for the support from the fans and my family. Without them I would not have achieved as much as I have.Source: South African Football Associationlast_img read more

Stargazer UV Hair Mascara : Awesome item. I currently have pink hair and this

first_imgBeen looking for these for years as stores discontinued. Can be used as little or as much as suits your taste.

Stargazer UV Hair Mascara, GreenStargazer UV Hair MascaraUV ReactiveEasy to Apply ApplicatorEasily Removed with ShampooPerfect for Clubs, Parties and FestivalsMade in UKCosmetically certified formula Great, my daughter loved it for halloween hair – washes out easily. It goes on quite well and helped me decide that i did want to put in a more permanent pink streak. It’s also been great for covering up my roots as the semi permanent is growing out. These are great when you want it your way. Stargazer UV Hair Mascara, Green : Good colour and washed out easily. Exactly what i needed for daughters crazy hair day at school. This mascara is very easy to use even i can use it. Gives the desired effect, might even try another colour. Bought as a stocking filler. Easy to use, but a bit too subtle. Stargazer pink hair mascara. I have purchased this product before as i have always loved it – it brings an instant touch of bright colour to ones hair and is extremely easy to use :). Brilliant, it worked on my dark blonde/light brown hair. My hair is light brown/dark blonde. Despite reading these comments, i went ahead and ordered the pink hair mascara because i really wanted an alternative to permanent highlights. I wasn’t at all expecting miracles but as i applied the bright pink hair mascara. The front of my hair was neon pink in two strokes of the brush. That may be because my hair is very chemically damaged and so it’s quite porus and therefore will absorb colour better. However i tried it on my friends hair (dark brown in colour) and we only had to use 3 strokes before it was nearly as pink as mine. She was pleased with the result as well and will soon be buying one. I’ve not tried the uv glow because i haven’t got a uv light but i didnt buy it for that anyway. If it doesn’t work i’d suggest you keep applying coats of it. Or maybe you should get the pink one seen as i haven’t tried the other colours :d. It glowed really well under the uv lights, easy to apply, lasted all night and washed out easily as well. Looks as though it will be great, though not tried it yet. Stargazer pink hair mascara.

Despite reading these comments, i went ahead and ordered the pink hair mascara because i really wanted an alternative to permanent highlights. I wasn’t at all expecting miracles but as i applied the bright pink hair mascara. The front of my hair was neon pink in two strokes of the brush. That may be because my hair is very chemically damaged and so it’s quite porus and therefore will absorb colour better. However i tried it on my friends hair (dark brown in colour) and we only had to use 3 strokes before it was nearly as pink as mine. She was pleased with the result as well and will soon be buying one. I’ve not tried the uv glow because i haven’t got a uv light but i didnt buy it for that anyway. If it doesn’t work i’d suggest you keep applying coats of it. Or maybe you should get the pink one seen as i haven’t tried the other colours :d. Easy to applyi have bleach blonde hair and this washes out leavingno colour behind. I can use anytime and not worryit will not wash out. I currently have pink hair and this.

Bought this for my daughter who has very light blonde hair. Had to apply over and over again to get a slight colour. Also had to put pressure on the hair to get the mascara to apply which made it not suitable for a child as it pulls their hair. Main plus point is that it does wash straight out.
