But unlike the days when Christmas Eve procrastinators had to think in terms of drugstores and other scattered retailers to complete or start their holiday shopping adventure, there is still time. And deals, some harking back to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Brick and mortar stores are offering special promotions to late shoppers in an effort to get every last dollar before the looming end of the holiday season. Carl and Theresa Muench did not start their holiday shopping until the Friday before Christmas. The couple from Sarasota braved the packed parking lots and crowded aisles of the Westfield Sarasota Square Mall around lunch time. "We haven't had the time to try and shop before," said Theresa Muench, while juggling stuffed gift bags from Starbucks. "But we'll get it all done in one sitting. We'll be finished by tonight." Carl Muench said the crowded mall did not intimidate the couple. "It's only Friday. Wait until Christmas Eve. It'll be a madhouse," he said. Making it easy Chain stores have been hoping for what could very well be the second biggest holiday shopping weekend of the season, analysts say. "There's no question that holiday shoppers wanted to make the most out of retailers' promotions as early as they could, but as personal schedules get even busier these days, we know there are plenty of people who haven't even made a dent in their list yet," said National Retail Federation President and CEO Matthew Shay. For the first time, Macy's nationwide remained open for 48 hours during the last weekend before Christmas. Friday and lasted hour by hour through Sunday, "an expansion of our successful marathon that began at select stores in 2006," said Peter Sachse, Macy's chief stores officer. "We hope to make it easy for our customers across the country to finish their shopping at any time of day or night and with the benefit of the great deals," Sachse said. today, with deals that include free $15 gift cards with $75 or more purchases of Disney Princess toys, and buy one get one 50 percent off on all NERF items and Crayola arts and crafts. Still plenty to do Only 11 percent of shoppers had wrapped up their holiday shopping as of mid December, the National Retail Federation reported. Most shoppers had completed about half. The last Saturday before Christmas has become in many ways bigger than Black Friday, said John Fleming, a spokesman for the Florida Retail Federation. "It's like the Super Bowl of holiday shopping," Fleming said, with every major retailer offering something special "to try to get you into the store this one last time." Retail sales rose 4.3 percent last week, the highest point so far in December, according to a weekly chain sale report issued by the International Council of Shopping Centers. Sales surged after two weeks of dips following Black Friday, a routine lull that retailers are used to seeing before mid December, said Michael Niemira, the council's chief economist. Target stores are offering 50 percent off deals on designer lines, holiday ornaments and other trinkets. At the Ellenton Premium Outlets, retailers like BCBG Max Azria offered 50 percent off all dresses. Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th shoppers saved 30 percent to 50 percent throughout the store. Brooks Brothers Factory offered 50 percent off on merchandise throughout the store the last weekend. Bradenton based Bealls department stores will offer 70 percent off deals on home good items; 60 percent off all toys, including brands like Mattel, Hasbro and Fisher Price; and 50 percent off all women's sleepwear apparel, spokesman Bill Webster said. Hot items this year include apparel where sales already are up from 2011 and 2010, NRF data shows books, video games and toys. More than half of shoppers have bought clothes this year, and 40 percent of shoppers have bought toys. "We've made a concentrated effort to offer better deals over this last weekend before the holiday, close to what you saw on Black Friday," Webster said. "This is the first time we've pushed this, but this year is a little different since Christmas has usually fallen on a weekend in the past." THAT FINAL RUN TO THE STORESBy JUSTINE GRIFFINShoppers fill Westfield Southgate Mall in Sarasota on Friday as retailers prepare for the final few spending days before Christmas. Hot items. But unlike the days when Christmas Eve procrastinators had to think in terms of drugstores and other scattered retailers to complete or start their holiday shopping adventure, there is still time.

Since taking over on June 25, Segarra said he has been trying to determine who will be the next leader of the city. He decided it should be him. "I've been speaking with many, many people who've encouraged me to run,'' Segarra told Capitol Watch early Sunday night. "I thought it would be in the city's best interests. I'm already there. This really wasn't in my plans, but it's an opportunity to help as much as I can. . Hartford is going to require someone who works very, very hard, and I don't see anyone on the landscape. I feel I have what it takes.'' Declining to reveal any names, Segarra said he asked various capable citizens "people who I thought can get the job done'' if they were thinking about running for mayor. Their response? "Nope. Nope. Nope,'' Segarra said. Segarra filed his papers Friday to make the run official for the November 2011 election. Upon becoming mayor after Perez's resignation, Segarra said he was shutting down his private law practice and devoting his energies to the mayor's office. Under the city charter, the "strong'' mayor is paid the same as a state Superior Court judge about $150,000 per year. Segarra originally made his announcement on Channel 3's Sunday morning program. On his blog, anchor Dennis House wrote, "Segarra told me he changed his mind because he wanted to send the message to investors and CEOs that if the voters will have him, he'll continue to be the man at the helm. Segarra's bold approach to running the city has led to several accomplishments in a short amount of time. The anti business attitude of the Perez administration led to the loss of companies, jobs, and put the city in the state of inertia. Segarra told me one of his top priorities has been economic development, which will create jobs Segarra will be running against at least two declared candidates, and some insiders believe this will lead to a wide open race. "This race is going to be a Wild West kind of race,'' said one longtime insider. "There will be a lot of people who will take a crack at the race.'' Among those who might seek the mayor's office include city council president rJo Winch, state Rep. Douglas McCrory, and former state Rep. Kenneth Green, an 8 term, veteran Democrat who lost a primary in August to city council member Matthew Ritter of Hartford's West End. Men Nike Free Run 2 Shield Stealth Black Orange White,One concern many parents have is teaching their baby to walk. It may seem like it just comes naturally and to an extent it does! However, there are things you can do to prepare your baby to walk. Babies don't just wake up one day and start walking. There's a natural progression from rolling over, to sitting up, to scooting, to crawling, to pulling up to walking. Teaching your baby to walk easily depends on her mastering those first steps. When your baby starts to become mobile, it's important to make sure that your home is a safe environment. Inspect your home to prevent your child from getting hurt on sharp corners, ledges, and stairs while your teaching your baby to walk. You may also be tempted to head to the store and purchase a walker. However, when you're teaching your baby to walk it's important not to use a walker. They can be dangerous and can cause accidents and injuries. When you're teaching your baby to walk, you may want to rush out and buy the perfect pair of shoes. However, recent research suggests that babies actually learn to walk better when they're not wearing shoes. So save your money and teach your baby to walk without the little tennies. If you want your child to wear shoes, that's okay, too. Just be aware that they won't make it easier for your baby to walk. If you're going to buy shoes, follow a few simple rules of thumb. When you teach your baby to walk, you must make sure that his shoes are going to help instead of hurt. Look for shoes with flexible soles and flat bottoms. Pass up the high tops and go for a shoe that allows your baby's ankle to move. Also check your baby's shoe size frequently to make sure he hasn't outgrown them. One of the most important things you can do to teach your baby to walk is encourage her to get a lot of exercise. Help her to develop coordination and balance by playing physical games and toys that promote dexterity. Toys that allow your baby to push or pull are excellent to teach your baby to walk. You can also play by kicking and throwing balls. These little activities will promote eye hand coordination and balance.

The punishment, announced Friday, May 30, 2014, was for substance abuse and did not mention his recent guilty plea to assaulting his ex girlfriend.(AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin, File)PHOENIX (AP) The NFL has suspended Arizona Cardinals standout inside linebacker Daryl Washington for one year for violating the league's substance abuse policy. The punishment, announced Friday, was for substance abuse and did not mention his recent guilty plea to assaulting his ex girlfriend. He still could face a later suspension for the criminal conviction. Washington, in a statement released by his agent, said the penalty was for marijuana, and that he takes responsibility for the violation. He said he "is committed to making changes" in his life that will allow him to return to the NFL. Considered among the best in the NFL at his position, Washington was suspended the first four games of last season for violating the substance abuse policy. "It is completely unacceptable that Daryl has once again put us in this position," Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said in a statement released by the team. "We all know what the consequences are and will deal with them." Washington, the team leader in tackles in 2011 and 2012, will lose $2.9 million in salary, plus any prorated signing bonus money, due to the suspension. In March, Arizona exercised a $10 million option to keep him on the roster. Washington received $5 million then and the deals calls for him to get the other $5 million next March. Second year player Kevin Minter is slotted to take Dansby's place. Just what the team will do to try to replace Washington is unclear. "Our approach is the same as it's always been: next man up," Keim said. "We talk a lot about how critical depth is to a team because situations always arise whether by injury or other circumstances such as this one." After leading the team with 111 tackles in his second NFL season, Washington signed a six year contract, adding four years and $32 million to his existing deal. In 2012, he led the team with career highs of 140 tackles and nine sacks and made the Pro Bowl. But in April of last year, the NFL suspended him four games for violating the substance abuse policy. A month later, he was arrested on accusations of assaulting his ex girlfriend, the mother of the couple's child. He pleaded guilty to two counts of assault earlier this year. A suspension for the criminal conviction had been expected. The penalty for substance abuse came as a surprise to some, but apparently not to Washington's teammates. "Old news to us, new news to y'all," defensive tackle Darnell Dockett said in a tweet. Keim said "our hope is that this suspension will give Daryl the opportunity to accept the necessary help and guidance to get his life back on track," Keim said, "and we will certainly support him however we can." When OTAs resumed this week, coach Bruce Arians said he hoped the team could pick up another outside linebacker. The Cardinals signed veteran Larry Foote in the offseason, and outside linebacker Lorenzo Washington also can play inside. Minter, a second round draft pick, played almost entirely on special teams as a rookie. Another player Arizona has at inside linebacker is Kenny Demens, an undrafted rookie free agent a year ago who spent last season on the Cardinals' practice squad. "I sincerely apologize for the effect of my actions on my teammates, coaches and other colleagues at the Cardinals," Washington said. "I also apologize to Cardinals fans for the time I will miss. I will work diligently during this suspension to return as a better man and football player."
