|FOOTWEAR TIPS FOR MONSOON
Come monsoon season and everybody has to rake their brains as to what to put on and step out of the house. Be it clothes or footwear- everyone has to compromise in terms of dressing up not according to what looks best on them but as per the showers allow them.
Rainy season is not a good time for the fashion enthusiasts as it dampens their spirits of donning their best outfits and footwear. Footwear , especially, is taken much care of. It?s very essential as the right kind of footwear helps us to tread through those frustrating potholes and muddy puddles. Here are some apt must-have footwear?s which will help you through this dreaded season:
If you are sporting a knee-length skirt or a Capri then you can opt for flip-flops or flats provided that it is raining moderately otherwise your legs will be beautified with mud stains.
If you are planning to go traditional by wearing a saree or churidar then slip into sandals and make sure they have an ankle strap to keep them firmly fitted to your feet.
Fashion lovers can go for slip-resistant sandals with heels but of not more than 2 inches with ankle straps to walk comfortably on slippery and uneven roads. Aside from the ever-popular ballet flats , Crocs has introduced several new models that even fashion-savvy girls will love, so you don?t have to squirm every time someone looks at your feet when you?re wearing them
Option for men could be knee- high gumboots , sport sandals.
Shoes such as sports and canvas are a strict no-no for this season as there are chances of bacterial growth due to the moisture in the climate.
Do not wear much of leather footwear as they too have the tendency of sheltering bacteria and fungus. If it is necessary to wear leather footwear during rainy season, feet should not be slipped in and out of the shoes directly , and must be opened only by the laces. Socks are a must; even if they get wet as they act as a barrier between the skin and the leather
If possible, shell out a few more bucks and buy branded footwear such as Puma , Reebok, Nike , Adidas, Liberty which will not slip from your feet and are designed to endure such harsh
Even if it brings along infuriating moments with it , rainy season, on the other hand , is also the time when you are at the peak of emotions. If taken optimistically, one can thoroughly enjoy this pleasant weather by following a few guidelines as above and celebrate monsoons without any compromises. So , wipe out all those apprehensions from your minds, step out
and enjoy the showers!!

DENVER， The United States， Nov. 20 (Xinhua) -- They're still not talking about it. Almost two weeks after the presidential election， the U.S. media has yet to discuss or analyze its role in the worst called election since Dewey-Truman in 1948.
Almost 70 years ago， The Chicago Tribune printed the famous "Dewey Beats Truman" headline that Republican Thomas E. Dewey had won the presidential election， but the Missouri Democrat Harry Truman actually prevailed. It is cited as an historic example of media incompetence.
On the election-eve of 2016， Reuters said Democrat Hillary Clinton had a 90 percent chance of winning and The Huffington Post said she had a 98.2 percent shot. CNN， and both Washington Post-ABC News and the New York Times-CBS News polls confirmed a Clinton victory.
However， Donald Trump was elected America's 45th president on Nov. 8 despite most of the analysts and opinion polls predicting his defeat to Clinton.
"It should be on the front page of every newspaper in America: 'We Blew It!'" a 65-year-old veteran， international political correspondent told Xinhua， on the condition of anonymity.
A media insider， a political TV producer in Washington， D.C.， agreed that America's media dropped the ball.
"The establishment press was covering the establishment pollsters. The press didn't take Trump seriously for a long time，" the 55-year-old government journalist told Xinhua. "They didn't do their job，" she added.
On the West Coast， anti-media criticism is surfacing as well， and this time blaming the U.S. "Corporate Media" for advancing Clinton instead of Bernie Sanders， who barely lost the Democratic nomination and was considered by many a better candidate against Trump.
"Corporate media will never understand the disenfranchised， working class whites and blacks in America because they don't live it - even though Bernie (Sanders) brought it out in his campaign，" Marilyn N. wrote on San Francisco's KALW public radio 91.7 FM's web site.
A veteran， 68-year-old international political print journalist， based in Denver， told Xinhua the U.S. media needs to stop analyzing why and start discussing its "blown coverage."
"The reporters flew around in her fancy plane， landed at well-staged， big city locations， saw her grounds crew in action， and thought she had it locked，" he told Xinhua.
And， a LA-based network reporter told Xinhua， "This is serious 'egg-on-the face' of America's media， and none of our colleagues are really talking about it. We have to recognize that we are seriously out-of-touch with American voters."
Media experts told Xinhua that because of the way the U.S. media covered the election， it energized some sectors of the electorate and caused complete apathy in others.
Proof of a disconnected electorate is easy to muster. Voter turnout this year dipped to nearly its lowest point in two decades， with only 55 percent of voting age citizens casting ballots (126 million votes)， .
