Dame Diana Rigg Joins Victoria Cast

From Queen of Thorns to Mistress of Robes! Dame Diana Rigg leaves her Game Of Thrones character Lady Olenna Tyrell behind as she makes her debut appearance in series two of Victoria, starting on ITV Choice on Monday 4th September.For the 79-year old Rigg, being able to laugh at her character's general disapproval really drew her to the role of the Duchess of Buccleuch in the hit series that stars Jenna Coleman in the titular role and Tom Hughes as her husband Albert.On her character, Dame Rigg said, "The duchess is very loyal to the queen. As a member of the establishment, she is very proper in many respects, but she also has deep prejudices which make me laugh a lot and hopefully will make the audience too. She doesn’t really care for the Germans or French and she really doesn’t care for the Belgians either! In that respect, she is unique and great fun to play.”When asked what she likes best about the duchess, Rigg said "I love her candour, the fact she is straightforward. I like the fact that I don’t think she would lie - she is what you see.  She is a very efficient sort of woman, but then so am I so we have that in common."Olenna Tyrell was not the sort of person who behaves in an acceptable fashion just to be accepted, she very much goes her own way, and I hope that she encourages young women to be the same."Likewise with the Duchess of Buccleuch - she does her own thing, until Victoria tries to put her in her place occasionally. Although, I think it bounces off her!”But Dame Diana admits her character has some lighter moments, "There has to be a bit of comedy and I try to find it in every scene. It is not exactly laugh out loud, but the writer Daisy Goodwin is wonderful and she has given me some terrific lines. The duchess is great fun to play."The Duchess of Buccleuch was Queen Victoria's Mistress of the Robes. Dame Diana explains how they first become acquainted."To begin with it is a bit prickly because the duchess had been working for Queen Adelaide beforehand and comparisons are made. Victoria, in her youth, does not measure up as far as the Duchess was concerned. As time goes by she accepts her more and more. However, it takes a long time for her to accept the German retinue!”Thankfully Rigg did not have to endure the restrictions of a corset while filming Victoria."I am beyond a corset so I don’t have to suffer that. I am not interested in having a waist – forget that. I only take half an hour in wardrobe and make-up because I am long past improving my appearance, so try to have it all done as quickly and efficiently as possible!”But there was one challenging aspect to the filming, as the actress describes: "Getting in and out of horse drawn carriages at my age! They are very high and impossible to get into and impossible to then get out of. There is very little that I have to acknowledge I can’t do anymore as an actress, but I can’t do that in front of the camera as it is very ungainly and almost impossible! I do it, but thank God I pleaded with the director to not make me do it on camera. There is a lot of huffing, puffing and groaning.”

Animals to the rescue of Children

Animals for YOUNG, a holistic early intervention center for special needs children, is now opened in Cyberjaya!Animals for YOUNG is a revolutionary therapeutic method to help in the early intervention for children with autism. Its founder, Dr. Khew, whose studies is in the field of Human-Animal Relations, finds that animals help in the emotional, physical and social development for humans. Dr. Khew also founded Malaysia’s first cat cafe to help people cope with depression.Dr. Khew says: “Animals would have a lot more to offer for children. Beside helping children with their psychosocial development, such as building rapport, increasing self-esteem and motivation, and stress reduction, animals could also assist in the development of children’s motor skills, communication and sensory issues.”Besides autism, Animals for YOUNG also assists in the early intervention of children with:Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Cerebral Palsy (CP) Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD/ Dyspraxia)Down’s Syndrome (DS)Global Development Delay (GDD) Reading & Learning Disorder (Dyslexia)Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)Speech & Language DelayOur in-house Occupational Therapist, Ms. Norshazrini, who has experience working with more than 1,000 special needs children says: “Animals can help therapists in achieving certain planned goal. Children tend to be more motivated when an animal is used in a controlled setting. Animals also benefit children in sensory and social skills.”Children in our programme will be assessed and an individualised program will be planned for them. Our Animals for YOUNG Intervention Program (AYIP) will incorporate:- Animal-Assisted Therapy (AAT) - Occupational Therapy (OT) - Sensory Integration- Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) - School Readiness- Art & Origami- Music & Movement- Sports- Baking- Fencing- Puppetry - Play Therapy- Life Skills- Academic Functional Skills (Math Skills & Language Arts)- Community-Based Learning- Social Skills.Dr. Khew adds: “Animals for YOUNG will be our 1st project in assisting special needs children. Moving on, we will be working on building an eco-tourism project using animals, whereby special needs people will have a place to work, while having their needs intervened with our animals. This coming place/ project will be known as- Furry-tail Land, a place where special needs people will finally find their “happily-ever-after”.

Casio Partners with Robert Geller on G-SHOCK Limited Edition Collaboration Watch

KUALA LUMPUR, July 17, 2017 — Casio Malaysia Sdn Bhd announced recently on the release ofthe G-SHOCK brand’s watch collaboration with acclaimed menswear designer, Robert Geller —the GST-200RBG-1A limited-edition men’s G-STEEL timepiece. The first ever collaboration for theG-STEEL line, this model is inspired by the urban elements of Tokyo — drawing from both brands' history and Geller’s experiences within the city. The new G-STEEL is the first joint design done byG-SHOCK and Geller, who have previously partnered on five consecutive runway presentations atNew York Fashion Week: Men’s.“I have been working with G-SHOCK for several years, and was very pleased when we decided to create a watch together. I wore a G-SHOCK watch throughout my teenage years, so it is really exciting to be able to make my own, more grown up version,” said Robert Geller. “For the past ten years, I have been producing my ready to wear collection in Japan because I love the quality and care of Japanese craftsmanship. G-SHOCK shares this same love, which is why this collaboration is a natural fit for us.”Specially designed by Robert Geller himself, the GST-200RBG-1A features a black ion plated stainless steel metal band, case and buttons, with gold accents on the face and a dark fuchsia second hand that nods to his most recent collection. Together the elements evoke an image of the Tokyo city lights against the buildings at night.“My favorite time in Tokyo is walking through the city in the middle of the night, when it is impossible to sleep because of the jet lag. The lights, smells and sounds are really magical and I wanted this watch to reflect that magic,” said Geller. Part of the G-STEEL line, which is geared towards the active gentleman with a refined personal style, this particular model includes the layered guard structure of G-SHOCK to absorb maximum impact while maintaining the sleek look of metal. Specifications:ConstructionShock-resistantWater Resistance200 metersWorld Time31 time zones (48 cities + coordinated universal time), daylight saving on/offStopwatch1/100 second; measuring capacity: 23:59’59.99”; measuring modes: elapsed time, split time, 1st-2nd place timesCountdown TimerMeasuring unit: 1 second; countdown range: 60 minutes; countdown start time setting range: 1 to 60 minutes (1-minute increments)Alarm5 daily alarms (with 1 snooze alarm); hourly time signalOther FunctionsFull auto-calendar: 12/24-hour format; button operation tone on/off;LED light (Super Illuminator) with afterglow, auto light switch, selectable illumination duration (1.5 seconds or 3 seconds)Accuracy at Normal Temperature±15 seconds per monthBattery LifeApprox. 2 years on SR927W × 2Size of Case 59.1×52.4×16.1 mmTotal WeightApprox. 100g
