(AP) ? If dresses could talk, this dark navy, figure-hugging velvet number would have the best stories to tell.

Princess Diana wore it on state visits, at royal banquets and most memorably to a gala dinner at the White House in 1985, when she took to the dance floor with Hollywood star John Travolta.

The Victor Edelstein gown will go under the hammer at a vintage fashion auction in London in March, along with nine other of Diana's lavish evening dresses. In total, Kerry Taylor Auctions say the sale is expected to raise more than 800,000 pounds ($1.2 million.)

The dresses, all in the signature 1980s look ? padded shoulders, puffed sleeves, crushed velvet ? are snapshots in the princess's glamorous, jet-setting life.

The sale is set for March 19.

    Same thing to happen here as the Pound tanks?

    The success or failure of your deeds does not add up to the sum of your life. Your spirit cannot be weighed. Judge yourself by the intention of your actions and by the strength you faced the challenges that have stood in your way.

    The people closest to you have been trying to tell you that you have made a difference. That you did change things for the better. The Universe is vast and we are so small. There is really only one thing that we can ever truly control - whether we are good or evil.

    The political triumph of the American Right has been to advance relentlessly the economic interests of the country's richest people, while emphasising a swath of moral, social and foreign policy issues that motivate and certainly distract middle-class and poor voters.

    It has already significantly happened, in the boom years, and desperate stimulus years.

    The more interesting question I think is whether the foreign owners who already own in UK, with the pound sliding a bit, the prospects going forward, together with fragile weak growth, will jolt more foreigners into putting their UK homes on the market.

    If so, more supply onto market, perhaps with more motivated sellers... and remaining foreign wealth not already committed facing stamp duty changes, with choice of investing in many other countries as well, including the USA. The resulting sentiment change were that to occur likely to be felt keenly.

    Quote

    The Smith Institute estimated that 60% of homes in central London were bought by overseas investors in the first half of 2011. Figures from Jones Lang LaSalle suggested that only 19% of central London developments during an unspecified time period were bought by British people.

    This extends beyond the so-called prime postcodes, where stereotypes of Russian oligarchs come to mind. According to Jones Lang LaSalle, many of those buyers were snapping up one- and two-bed homes in new developments across London, often without even looking at the property, propping up the market where first-time buyers are priced out.

    Foreign buyers are one part of a bigger picture of under-occupation in London. The 2011 census revealed that there are an astonishing 229,803 second homes in London, many of which will be owned by British residents. Put very crudely, that is seven times the mayor's annual housebuilding target.

    See Below:

    It looks to me like there is a massive coordinated attempt by the various VIs to engineer a spring bounce by press releases and trolling popular Internet forums such as this.

    Following the reported 1.9% monthly rise from a government controlled lender and the (expected) 0.5% rate cut, this forum seems to be targeted by bulls, many joining in the last few day to talk up the market.

    The general drift seems to be... 'Savings accounts are paying a pittance so get into property now and pick up a bargain'.

    I wonder if the various EA and lenders associations are emailing their members, suggesting that joining this forum to talk up the market would be a good idea.

    Note: The above was posted in late January 2009, the following is updated as and when required.

    What amazes me in that in the US, UK, and Australia foreigners are allowed to buy property with very little difficulty. Try that in China or any country with a half decent idea of how the world works, and you will soon be given short shift.

    And yet the voters do not seem to care....

    There is always death and taxes; however, death doesn't get worse every year.....

    my predictions for H1 2012 were:
    UK Houseprices vary by +/-5% in GDP, but fall another 20% in currencies that hold their value, such as AUD, CHF !TICK!
    1 or more countries exit the Euro by end June 2012 !LOSE!
    Riots/civil unrest cause +10 deaths in european countries !TICK!
    gold reaches $2000 by end June 2012 !LOSE!

    predictions for H2 2012:
    UK national houseprice average down by -10% in GDP on YOY average !TICK!
    1+ more round of QE in UK, 1 more round of helicoptering in US !TICK!
    Obama win in US elections !TICK!
    gold reaches $2300 by end December 2012 !LOSE!

    predictions for H1 2013
    UK national houseprice average stays steady by +-3% in GBP
    1+ more round of QE in UK, 1+ more round of helicoptering in US !TICK!
    IPCC issues some statements that 'global warming' is in a hiatus period, but will come back, oh yes

    Beware! There was a fuss in Canada a couple of weeks ago about EAs posing as Chinese buyers to big-up the Vancouver market.

    There was a TV expose etc. and the ultimate point is that domestic buyers drive the market, not outsiders.

    Reference to it from a Chinese news source here:

    Seen it all b4. Mum was looking to sell her childhood home in Bath in the early / mid nineties. Her brother kept holding out for the rich Hong Kongese flocking to the London market. When the ink had finally dried on the handover documents in 97 her brother capitulated - having ridden the bear right to the bottom with not one member of the former colony expressing even the slightest interest.

    If it is all a myth, why is my postbox in Hong Kong full EVERY DAY with multiple flyers for London property? Why is the South China Morning Post printing large, half and full page adverts EVERY DAY for London property? Why have I seen dozens and dozens of small offshore companies owned by mainland Chinese owning property in Australia and the UK? Why, when I lived in Australia, of the 15 houses in my street, I knew of 4 that were owned by Chinese or Singaporeans (didn't know about the rest), of which two lived in and two were rented out.

    Some myth.

      Study revises colorectal cancer risk down and other cancer risks up for women with Lynch Syndrome

      Study revises colorectal cancer risk down and other cancer risks up for women with Lynch Syndrome [ Back to EurekAlert! ] Public release date: 26-Feb-2013

      50-60 percent colorectal cancer risk, 11 percent breast, 11 kidney, 9 percent bladder

      Lynch Syndrome is a heritable genetic mutation that causes colorectal, endometrial and other cancers. A cooperative study that included the University of Colorado Cancer Center, published in this month's issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, revises the risk of colorectal cancer down but other cancers up for women with Lynch Syndrome who have had endometrial cancer.

      "This new information helps patient care in two important ways. First, it helps us counsel women with Lynch Syndrome who have had endometrial cancer about the magnitude of their future cancer risk, which turns out to be about 55 percent over the 20 years after diagnosis of their endometrial cancer. Second, it helps fill in the picture of the spectrum of cancers that are associated with Lynch Syndrome, which includes not only colorectal and endometrial cancers, but kidney, ureter, renal, pelvic, urinary, bladder and breast cancers in that order as well," says Dennis J. Ahnen, MD, CU Cancer Center investigator and professor of gastroenterology at the Denver VA Medical Center, one of the paper's co-authors.

      The research group, which includes member from six centers, used data from 127 women included in the Colon Cancer Family Registry (CCFR). Ahnen notes that the CCFR is unique among cancer registries in that it not only collects information on patients with colorectal cancer and their treatment outcomes, but also routinely performs molecular characterization of these tumors, which can show which of these cancers are associated with Lynch Syndrome or other genetic abnormalities. Importantly, this molecular categorization allows researchers to discover which of the three possible pathways led to a patient's cancer the traditional chromosomal instability pathway accounts for about 80 percent of all colorectal cancers, and Lynch Syndrome combines with an epigenetic pathway to account for the remaining 20 percent.

      "Knowing a cancer's genetic makeup allows us to ask questions not only about colorectal cancer in general, but about its molecular subtypes separately. These three types are included under the umbrella of colorectal cancer but have different prognoses and react differently to therapies. Effectively, they're quite different diseases," Ahnen says.

      One of the study's important findings was an 11 percent lifetime risk for breast cancer after Lynch-associated endometrial cancer, 2.51 times the risk of women outside this population. Also elevated with Lynch Syndrome were lifetime risks of bladder (9 percent) and kidney (11 percent) cancers. But while the current study expands the spectrum of cancers associated with Lynch Syndrome, it also provides estimates of risk of colorectal cancer that are lower than previous estimates.

      "When you think about it," Ahnen says, "most of the prior data on Lynch-associated colorectal cancer risk was from people referred to a high-risk clinic usually because of a strong family history of cancer. Of course, these people are likely to have higher cancer risk than the general population. The registry data minimizes this selection bias and allows us to look at a more representative cross-section of the colorectal cancer population. This cross-section shows a 50-60 percent lifetime risk of developing colorectal cancer in people with Lynch Syndrome, as opposed to earlier estimates of 70-80 percent risk."

      "There are many remaining questions we can ask using the CCFR data," Ahnen says. "For example, what's the best way to screen people for Lynch Syndrome? Based on the risks the registry shows, should we screen all colorectal cancers for Lynch and then all family members of Lynch patients for the mutation or should we focus on some clinical subset of the population such as those with CRC at a young age? Likewise we can determine if colorectal cancers that arise from different molecular pathways are associated with different risk factor profiles, different prognoses or have different responses to available treatments."

      To Ahnen, this specific study's findings are important but even more essential is the approach taken by the Colon Cancer Family Registry to collect and molecularly characterize these cancers. As cancer becomes an ever-longer list of related but distinctly different diseases, each perhaps with a molecular Achilles heel, the Colon Cancer Family Registry allows researchers like Ahnen to ask questions about treatment of these molecular subtypes that are rarely possible with cancer registries that treat, say, breast or prostate cancers as monolithic diseases.

      Cancer is becoming seen as "cancers" and in many ways, the Colon Cancer Family Registry allows researchers in this field to lead the way.

      iTunes in the Cloud looks to be hitting more of Europe with TV series, films

      iTunes in the Cloud looks to be hitting parts of Europe with TV series, films

      While stateside users might complain that we get all the good stuff in Europe first, Apple's iTunes in the Cloud for movies and TV shows has finally got around to rolling in to France and other parts of Europe, eons after it came out in the US. We confirmed that the new functionality works in France, which lets you buy films and TV shows from a computer, Apple TV or iOS device, then download it for free from the cloud on another. Others have reported by Twitter that it's working in Holland and Sweden as well, making it the first big move for the service since it rolled into the UK, Australia and Canada last summer. Until now, users in those nations were only able to download books, apps and music purchased in iTunes from the cloud. There's still no word from Apple about the move, however, and the list of supported countries hasn't been updated for those features -- so we'll enjoy it for now and hope Cupertino doesn't change its mind.
