Additional Gas Cuts for Pakistan's Textile Sector
Pakistan's textile and apparel firms have expressed their concerns at government plans to cut gas supplies to the industry as the start of the winter season puts further pressure on supplies.
Temperatures are already falling in the northern part of the country including Punjab, Khyber Pakhtun Khawa, and Azad Kashmir.
The Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited this week said gas supplies will remain suspended for four-days a week - and the industry now fears a complete closure as temperatures drop.
Rana Arif Tauseef, chairman, of the Pakistan Textile Exporters Association, and Chaudhry Salamat Ali, chief coordinator and former chairman of the Pakistan Hosiery Manufacturers and Exporters Association, are to organize protests against the increasing gas cuts for the industry.
Tauseef also warned that shipments worth of US$4m destined to the EU and US are under threat.
Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry believes a total shutdown in gas supplies could be imminent - and would put the jobs of over 15m people and exports of around US$14bn at stake.
Seth Muhammad Akber, acting chairman of the All Pakistan Textile Mills Association, is urging the government to honor its commitment of four-days-a-week gas supply to textile industry.
While Dr Asim Hussain, the federal minister for petroleum and natural resources, had earlier assured the industry that there is no intention to completely stop the gas supply to the textile industry during the winter, the government is under no obligation to provide gas during the months of December, January and February.
Around 75% of the textile plants in the northern part of Pakistan run gas fired power plants.

FDI Reforms Suspended
India's ruling Congress Party confirmed that plans to allow more foreign investment in the country's retail sector have been suspended.
Speaking in the Indian parliament, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee gave official confirmation that the reforms, which have led to fierce opposition among parts of India's political elite, were not going to be forced through.
He said: "The decision to permit 51% FDI in retail trade is suspended until a consensus is developed through consultation among various stakeholders."
It emerged that the Indian government was planning to put its reforms, announced last month, on hold.
On December 3, Mamata Banerjee, chief minister of the state of West Bengal and leader of the All India Trinamool Congress 
party, the second-largest party in India's ruling coalition, said the government had suspended a decision on the reforms "until and unless there is a consensus of all parties on the matter". December 7, however, was the first official confirmation that the reforms were being suspended.
Mukherjee said the Indian government would now consult all stakeholders, including the chief ministers of all states and political parties, before going ahead with the policy.
Under the plans, announced November 24, foreign companies would be able to own 51% of multi-brand retail stores. The Indian government claimed the reforms would create jobs and modernize the country's supply chain. As the ruling was made by the cabinet, it did not to go to a parliamentary vote.
Opponents of greater foreign investment, including key government allies like Banerjee, were furious about the move and began a series of protests that caused parliamentary proceedings to grind to a halt. They claim giving retailers like Wal-Mart Stores, Tesco and Carrefour greater access to Indian's retail market would cripple local businesses.
Sudip Bandhopadhyay, leader of the Trinamool Congress, which strongly opposed the FDI reforms, said after the meeting: "It has been accepted. Whatever you may want to call it, holdback or rollback, it is not being implemented."
Some opposition politicians said it signaled the death knell of 
the proposals.
Jon Copestake, retail industry analyst at the Economist Intelligence Unit, described the move as "a blow" for global retailers.
He also believes that resurrecting the bill could prove difficult given the timing. State elections are looming next year and weak economic signs in September have made opposition voices difficult to ignore.
"Even if this is just a temporary setback it could prove costly," he adds. "Domestic players such as RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group, Future Group and Bharti Retail will have to wait for planned funding or tie-ins with international partners, which will hamper growth plans in the coming year."

Cotton Production to Fall 
The global cotton area is forecast to fall by 8% in 2012/13 Cotton experts have lowered their estimates for cotton production for next season as falling prices lead farmers to focus on alternative crops - but say rising mill use and lower cotton prices could fuel a rebound in world cotton trade.
The forecast from Inter-governmental group the International Cotton Advisory Committee (ICAC) comes after cotton prices jumped to a record high of US$1.64 per pound in 2010/11, but dropped sharply in the current season.
For the first time in three years, it says, the crop is less attractive than the main alternatives. As a result, the Secretariat projects global cotton area to fall by 8% in 2012/13 to 33.3m hectares and production to drop by 6% to 25.1m tons.
Cotton production is expected to decline in most large producing countries, with the exceptions of the US, Uzbekistan, and Australia.
However, after two seasons at depressed levels, global cotton mill use is forecast to start growing again in 2012/13 - providing there is a recovery in global economic growth that boosts purchases of textile products and consumption of raw fibres. Largely driven by demand in Asia, global cotton mill use could rise by 3% in 2012/13 to 25.0m tons.
Together, rising mill use and lower cotton prices could fuel a rebound in world cotton trade in 2012/13.
Imports and exports are expected to jump by 9% to 8.4m tons. As global production and consumption are expected to roughly balance in 2012/13, global cotton stocks are forecast to increase only slightly, to 11.6m tons.

             DirectorySexy
Is not your typical online lingerie directory. Included are links to social networks, images, categories of lingerie styles, sizes, and much more all the while including contact and company information. 
Daniel Kraus, owner and creator said, "DirectorySexy grew out of a frustration I had in finding lingerie for my girlfriend. I was tired of web searches that all led to same sites and stores. So I decided to create a site that would list designers and boutiques according to major categories. Along the way I added categories for bra styles, panty styles, corset styles, lingerie styles, shapewear styles, and occasions. 
Designer entries can indicate what countries their designs and products are sold in while boutiques can indicate what designers they carry in stock. There are now over 50 categories any lingerie boutique or designer may be listed under.
In addition, each designer and boutique can list their social networking sites, location, display their logo, supply a description of their company, include a biography and company history, links to their site, a specialty (should they have one), contact information and an image gallery. Currently there are over 200 companies listed on DirectorySexy from over 20 different countries. A set of "Lingerie Services" categories as well as bra sizes, panty sizes, price ranges and average bra price data is also being added.
Lingerie consultants, experts and publications also have their own directories to supply industry professionals with more information and possible networking. Each of these has their own set of categories to make searching and browsing simpler and easier.
Registration on the site requires either a $50.00 one-time fee or a link to DirectorySexy and is performed through a downloadable PDF form. Online registration is currently being worked on as well as user registration, interactions and owner control over their company's directory entry. 
"Directory Sexy is an incredible resource," said Luis Paredes, publisher of The Lingerie Journal. "It's more than just a list of lingerie companies. The way Daniel has built Directory Sexy allows companies to effectively brand their listing, showcase their offerings and make a connection with the customers searching for them."

Mislabeled Garments 
          Fail Tests
Spanish retailer Zara has again been accused of selling "sub-standard" clothes in China after tests were said to have found garments labeled with incorrect fiber content.
The claims, reported by China Daily, come seven months after 
parent Inditex admitted that labeling on some Zara men's 
trousers tested by the Beijing Consumer Association (BCA) did not disclose the acrylic and viscose content.
Zara's Quality Control Department is working to correct this and to avoid it for the future," Inditex said at the time.
But now it seems similar tests by the Shanghai Municipal Bureau of Quality and Technical Supervision found the fiber content on a batch of Zara cardigans did not match the label. Other brands including Nautica, CK Jeans and TeenieWeenie were also said to have failed the tests.

Lejaby Receives Second
        Takeover Bid
A second takeover bid submitted for insolvent French lingerie maker Lejaby comes from a UK-registered company, Pacific Junction Corporation, acting on behalf of an unidentified French firm currently being set up.
The bid is said to propose retaining 220 of Lejaby's 450 staff. 
However, given that the deadline for bids passed on November 30, a bankruptcy judge will now consider whether this new offer is receivable.
The other bid comes from Grenoble-based investment fund Abcia, and makes provision to retain 135 staff.
The commercial court of Lyon is scheduled to examine bids for 
Lejaby on December 22.
Lejaby puts its difficulties down to a significant shrinking in the multi-brand retailer channel, the main outlet for its products.
The lingerie firm, which closed three of its four French production sites at the end of last year, posted a loss of EUR2.7m (US$3.6m) for the 2010/2011 financial year. 
Restructuring at the company has also entailed almost 200 jobs cuts and the transfer of production to North Africa.

Men, Fear and Marriage 
The British had an organization that Americans are now considering adopting. 
It seems that in England, they had a men's club, Bachelors' Anonymous. It was highly successful in making men fear or even hate marriage. 
The club provided a unique way to treat the problem of bachelors wanting to marry. They send over a mother-in-law in nightgown, hair curlers, and a mud pack.
