Agree with papigiulio
It is grossly overpriced and the quality and materiels used for the clothes, handbags and the likes is not that good.
Yet the japanese it seems will pay any price for the brand name.

Clinton is right and means well trying her best for equal rights for women in afganistan
Its a cultural issue in Afganisan and the mass are fighting against women having equal rights.
Sadly I think she is farting against a cyclone.
I think when NATO leaves it will go back to the old ways

Most celebs have been married two or three times and always in the news with their constant relationship problems.
Boring as hell news reports and makes marriage meaningless.
I like them as actors but why should we give a toss about their personal issues?

There is one point I am not sure about in the article, doesn't make sense.
It says to avoid the middle of the road as the attacker comes from any direction. This is true but it means that you have more time to see the attacker coming and you can also go in any direction.
My belief is to stay away from the edges of the pavement/road as an attacker can easy ambush you (hiding behind a car, hidden door, corner ) and you have no time to react!
Another good point is that the article says that killers are more likely to chase someone running. This is true, its animal instinct. As I mentioned run if you think you can outrun your attacker or you kick him down.
Of course as most agree there is nothing better than being aware!

As a martial arts instructor I could write a book on the subject.
I would agree with the first two comments, yes forget the powdered pepper. If an attacker comes at you with a knife and you dick around trying to open a pepper bag, too late you are dead!
If you think you can outrun the attacker, if he is older, fatter, then run
If you don't think you can outrun the attacker using your bag, as mentioned in the article as shield is a good idea and will buy you some time and allow you to kick the attackers legs, knees, groin. Take him down hard and fast and get to a safe area before he recovers.
