Not at all, although the origins of the word came from the Kashmir area from the Persian times, we are fortunate that many other locations are now producing cashmere. One in particular is in Inner Mongolia, northern China. This area is the biggest producer of cashmere goats in the wool. Vary the pressure when working with color to give the sketch shadows and highlights. Never mind coloring outside the lines, because neatness in drawing doesn count much compared with the tangible creation that results from the idea. Some designers even purposefully color outside the outline, making the sketch more artistic and abstract. Many films of the 1940s centered on the trials and tribulations of the brave men and women fighting for freedom in Europe and the Pacific. In order to express its support for the hardships and rations endured during the War by regular citizens, Hollywood created simple and subdued costumes during this period. Women dressed in simple suits or slacks with sensible shoes. Batman Forever Return of Swamp Thing (Truly bad but I couldn make a strong enough case to call it a superhero film) Elektra Meteor Man (This film almost made my list but I left if off since it is mainly a spoof) Ghost Rider Dick Tracy And finally, I have to mention one film that was excluded that perhaps deserves the number one spot and that the 1994 Fantastic Four film that was never released theatrically or on video although it been heavily bootlegged. Intending it to be a $40 big budget film, the producer, Neu Constantin was about to lose his rights to the film and had to produce something. He hired director Roger Corman to make the film but not for $40 million. Matchy Matchy doesn't always work in the fashion world because sometimes you have to mix and match your outfits along with a little color. With the rules of wearing white after labor day doesn't really apply anymore. In fashion, you'll need to take certain risks without being afraid to strut your stuff in those outfits that you own. Are you one of those people that know exactly what you want but you have trouble finding it. Try looking for it on Ebay. You will be shocked to find exactly what you are looking for in a very reasonable price. Should petite women buy, tweak, or skip the animal influences trend for fall/winter 2010/2011? I say tweak on this fall fashion trend. Furs, whether real or faux, tend to be quite bulky, so petite women should wear them with care. For example, a fur lined hood may work better than a full length fur coat.

Lexus Introduces First Hybrid AWD System with NX300h

The all-new Lexus NX 300h will introduce an electronically-driven, rear-wheel all-wheel-drive system to the Australian compact luxury SUV class at its launch next week.

The Lexus NX 300h will introduce the Lexus E-Four AWD system - a Lexus-first technology that debuted on RX hybrid models - to the Australian compact luxury SUV category

The Lexus E-Four system, which debuted on RX hybrid models in 2006, features an additional electric motor at the rear of the vehicle and enables the rear wheels to be driven purely by electric power.

The front axle works in concert with the Lexus Hybrid system and can be propelled by petrol or electric power, or a mixture of both.

The system removes the need for a mechanical link to the rear of the vehicle, reducing fuel consumption by preventing friction losses and only driving the rear wheels when required

The Lexus NX 300h will introduce the Lexus E-Four AWD system - a Lexus-first technology that debuted on RX hybrid models - to the Australian compact luxury SUV category

The E-Four system deactivates under normal driving conditions to maximise fuel efficiency. The system also ensures stable driving performance when traction is limited by optimising front/rear torque distribution. 

Lexus Australia chief executive Sean Hanley said Lexus’ introduction of the technology to the segment was yet another example of the brand pushing the envelope in the area of fuel-saving hybrid technology. 

“The E-Four system is not just technology for the sake of it – it combines real-world fuel savings with the safety benefits of all-wheel drive in a clever and efficient package,” Mr Hanley said.

“E-Four has been proven over eight years of use in Lexus RX hybrid models, and we’re proud to introduce it to the compact luxury category,” he added.

Lexus has introduced other hybrid innovations to the market including the hybrid SUV, hybrid all-wheel-drive V8, hybrid luxury sedan and split-cell hybrid battery.
