Selfie sticks might have made their ways into many serious occasions Chaussures Homme Nike Air Max 270 Photo Bleu Pas Cher , including the two sessions, but a growing number of museums have started to put limits on the craze.

The device, which has become a favorite of tourists and outdoor sports enthusiastic worldwide, has become a safety concern to visitors and artworks for many museums.

A staff member of Nanjing Museum said they have stopped visitors from using selfie sticks inside the museum.

Extendable to as long as 1.5 meters, twirling selfie sticks can be disturbing to other visitors and dangerous to the museum objects, according to Nanjing Museum. Tripods and monopods are also on the banned list at the popular museum.

Although the popular sticks are still allowed in most museums, more are taking actions accordingly.

Several museums in Wuhan, capital of central China's Hubei province Chaussures Homme Nike Air Max 270 Blanche Noir Pas Cher , have started to require visitors to check-in their sticks before entering. Those who ignore the message will be stopped during security check.

According to the security head of Hubei Museum, their major concern is the safety of the museum artworks. Selfie sticks are just one of the many forbidden items at the museum, including liquid, inflammables and explosives and lighters. Selfie sticks are also banned in Hubei Museum of Art.

At the same time, many major museums in other countries have also started to say 'no' to selfie sticks.

Rome's Colosseum banned selfie sticks last month as a security measure, both for the objects on exhibit inside and for the 16,000 daily visitors to the 2,000-year-old monument.

The Smithsonian museums in Washington banned selfie sticks last week. Cameras and pictures are still allowed Chaussures Homme Nike Air Max 270 Triple Noir Pas Cher , but selfie sticks, tripods and monopods are not.

The National Portrait Gallery, adjacent to the National Gallery in the UK, said the sticks are allowed, but “anything that may prove disruptive is reviewed on an ongoing basis.” The British Museum is “currently reviewing” its selfie-stick policy.

Some art-lovers praised the idea of a ban.

"If you go into an exhibition, surely the purpose is to see what is on show and not to take umpteen photographs of yourself?" said Bill Doig, a visitor to the National Portrait Gallery.

MIAMI, the United States Chaussures Homme Nike Air Max 270 Blanche Volt Pas Cher , Sept. 9 (Xinhua) -- "The condition there is pretty terrible," Belkis Lobaina told Xinhua Saturday at a shelter in the southwest of the city in the U.S. state of Florida.

At the South Miami Senior High hurricane shelter, more than 800 locals who sought refuge as Hurricane Irma looms crammed into its classrooms and corridors.

Makeshift mattresses, desks, chairs and luggage littered the ground of the three-level building, leaving only narrow pathways for people to navigate the mess.

A 52-year-old Guianese, who only gives his name as Ramnaraine, told Xinhua that despite the fact that the shelter had reached its capacity a long time ago Nike Air Max 90 Femme Pas Cher , more and more evacuees are shuttled here, squeezing the space of earlier arrivals.

"I couldn't sleep, and there's no privacy," Ramnaraine said.

At a nearby shelter that was the Miami-Dade County Fair and Exposition, which is housing more than 1,200 people with a capacity of 500, Max Boubee was walking his dog.

"I came here because it is a pet-friendly shelter," Boubee Nike Air Max 90 Homme Pas Cher , who is here with his wife and four children from Bay Harbor, said.

Kennels took up about one third of the space, releasing an odor that blanketed the entire hall. Cloths were draped over some of the kennels to keep the animals calm, but the constant barking throughout the center was still hard to ignore.

Boubee said he can bear the smell and the noise, but admitted that living under the same roof with so many animals "is not fun."

To add to the discomfort, the American Red Cross, which is running the facility, is not properly feeding those in the shelters Nike Air Max 90 Premium Pas Cher , many complained.

"We are only getting limited food here," Ramnaraine said, adding that the quota for each person was a cold sandwich and about an ounce of juice per meal. "That was it, no second servings."

"We need more food in here," Lobaina said, "hot meals like rice and beans."

For those sheltered in the exhibition hall, there is no breakfast, only lunch and supper.

Across the state of Florida Nike Air Max 90 Pas Cher , which is expected to be entirely impacted by extreme weather, 6.3 million people were under mandatory or voluntary evacuations, the Florida Division of Emergency Management said Saturday.

While most of those evacuated chose to stay with relatives or friends, and some reserved local hotel rooms in sturdy buildings, about 75,000 people were admitted to shelters across the state, putting a strain on the already stretched disaster relief resources.

In Miami-Dade County, one of the regions that is forecasted to be one of the most heavily hit Nike Air Max 93 Pas Cher , 42 shelters have been set up.

Despite the evacuation orders, those who are most vulnerable to the incoming storm may still lack protection, according to local media.

Homeless people can still be seen wandering the streets of Miami, lacking information on where the shelters are or the means to get there. Requests to help the homeless were denied by the police, who said they are not processing those kinds of calls, local NBC 6 TV station reported.

As clouds accumulate over Miami, strong gusts and winds can be felt, a foretaste of the more deadly winds and storm surge soon to arrive.

"I don't know whether I will have a home Nike Air Max 180 Pas Cher , after the storm passes," Boubee said, as he and his dog went back into the shelter, which can keep him safe, at least for now.
