Name The Paddling Poms Murray River Kayak Expedition 2013.

In 2013 we are setting off for Australia and undertaking a massive challenge. We will be kayaking the full length of the Murray river.

The mighty Murray river is the third longest navigable river in the world crossing the states of Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia and totals at around 2756 kilometres.

The beginning phase of the expedition will be by foot, hiking to the source of the river in the Australian Alps, only 40 km away from Australia's highest mountain, Mt Kosciusko.

Once this phase of the expedition is complete and we reach water suitable enough we will make our way along the river in Kayaks, this is how we plan to travel the remainder of the journey to the mouth of the river at the Southern Ocean.

This expedition is in aid of charity and we expect a lot of coverage to be floating about. We have already appeared in news papers and we hope to get on the news at some point. The aim is to raise £5000 so we need as much publicity as possible.

We are looking for people that may want to join us for as little or as much as they want of the journey.

Also being that we are both English it would be great to get some support from people that live closer to the river. One of the problems we are faced with is actually getting from the airport to the source of the river.

Fly a message my way if you are interested or think you can help,

LVMH shares jump as Louis Vuitton calms worries By comparison, shares in peers such as Kering , previously known as PPR, have gained 28 percent since January while shares in Bruno Cucinelli and Salvatore Ferragamo have risen more than 50 percent. | Reuters – Fri, Jul 26, 2013 9:30 AM EDT

[b][url=http://www.louisvuittononstyle.com]lv bags[/url][/b] PARIS (Reuters) - Shares in LVMH soared on Friday after the luxury group reassured investors about margins and sales growth at its star brand Louis Vuitton and joined rival Kering (Other OTC: PPRUF - news ) in pointing to an uptick in sales in the second quarter.
[b]<a href="http://www.louisvuittononstyle.com">lv</a>[/b] The latest figures added to evidence of a rebound in the luxury sector as solid demand in Japan and the United States combined with recovery in Europe to offset China's slowdown.
[b]<a href="http://www.louisvuittononstyle.com">cheap louis vuitton bags</a>[/b] Investors were concerned that Louis Vuitton's growth was running out of steam after enjoying more than two decades of annual increases above 10 percent, driven by a rapid expansion around the globe.
[b][url=http://www.louisvuittononstyle.com]handbags[/url][/b] The stock in industry leader LVMH rose as much as 5.7 percent - their biggest one-day gain in more than three years.
[b][url=http://www.louisvuittononstyle.com]cheap louis vuitton bags[/url][/b] LVMH Chief Executive Bernard Arnault, France's richest man, said in January that Louis Vuitton's slowdown was voluntary and the brand had put the brakes on opening new shops to preserve its exclusivity.
[b][url=http://www.louisvuittononstyle.com]handbags[/url][/b] At that time, Arnault publicly admitted for the first time that Louis Vuitton, LVMH's biggest contributor to profits, was at risk of being too ubiquitous.
To counter that perception, Arnault said the brand would move upscale and expand its leather bag offering while pruning its portfolio of LV-embossed canvas bags which make up two third of its business and generate gross margins of around 90 percent.
LVMH Finance Director Jean-Jacques Guiony on Friday said Louis Vuitton's margins rose in the first half, both at the operating and gross level, reversing a decline which analysts estimate started two or three years ago.
"People feared that less canvas and more leather could impact Louis Vuitton's margins," said Exane BNP Paribas analyst Luca Solca.
HSBC (LSE: HSBA.L - news ) calculated that Louis Vuitton's operating margin fell to 42 percent from 44 percent between 2011 and 2012.
RELIEF
Sales growth at LVMH's fashion and leather goods division, of which Louis Vuitton makes up 75 percent of sales, doubled in the second quarter to 6 percent from 3 percent in the previous three months on a like-for-like basis.
"It is a relief that there is an improvement in the second quarter and that the margin (at LV) stopped deteriorating," said Zurich-based Andrea Gerst, who helps run the Julius Baer Luxury Brands fund with 417 million euros ($551.92 million)under management.
Referring to Louis Vuitton's performance regionally, Guiony said trading in Asia was "flattish," in the United States "in the mid-single digits" while in Japan and Europe, it was "a bit higher or a bit lower than double digit."
Guiony added that the bulk of Chinese demand today was from tourists and estimated overall Chinese demand for the brand to be in "mid-single digits" terms.
Analysts estimate that growth in the global luxury goods industry will slow down to around 6-8 percent in 2012, or about twice the level of global GDP growth depending on estimates, compared with 10 percent growth last year.
Luxury investors and analysts said they expected trading to continue to improve in the second half of the year, partly thanks to the return of Chinese customers, the world's biggest buyers of luxury goods.
"We expect a slow but steady recovery of Chinese luxury demand because of the underlying appetite for luxury and wealth creation continuing," Gerst said.
In the past year, China's luxury market, which had been the industry main growth driver, was hit by a slower economy and the government's crackdown on the country's tradition of gift-giving to facilitate transactions and deals.
LVMH rival Kering on said on Thursday the slowdown continued in China but earlier this week Swatch Group (Other OTC: SWGAY - news ) , the world's biggest watch maker, said it expected Chinese demand to improve in the second half.
Before Friday's rise, shares in LVMH were down 6 percent since January, making them the second-worst performers on the Paris CAC 40 index of blue-chips and the worst performing European luxury stock overall.
On Friday alone, Kering shares jumped 4.5 percent.
Since January, UBS (Berlin: UBRA.BE - news ) had estimated that LVMH underperformed luxury peers by over 30 percent and traded on a 2014 enterprise value to earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (Ebitda) of 8.1 times, below the sector average of 9.7 times, excluding the very highly valued Hermes .
($1 = 0.7555 euros).

Kendall Jenner Breaks Down in Tears on Camera, Feels Ignored by Family

[b][url=http://www.tiffanycojewelryshop.com]tiffany[/url][/b] The tears were flowing during Kendall Jenner 's trip to the Greek island of Mykonos earlier this spring. While vacationing with her famous family -- including a then-pregnant Kim Kardashian -- the 17-year-old model often felt excluded from group activities. To avoid feeling left out, she decided to spend some time alone in her room. In a sneak peek from the Aug. 4 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians , half-sister Khloe Kardashian-Odom pays Jenner a visit to see what's going on.

[b][url=http://www.tiffanycojewelryshop.com]tiffany silver[/url][/b] "Kendall is not at breakfast. Last night she said she felt left behind, and I would never want Kendall to think we didn't want to hang out with her," Kardashian-Odom, 29, says in a video confessional. "If Kendall wanted to hang out with us, the door's open! We're your sisters."
