how to research trends But is the only place you find cashmere wool coat from Kashmir? 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.

The new Hennessey Venom GT combines British Handling with American Muscle Engine

Hennessey Venom GT

The Hennessey Venom GT is, in essence, a British-made Lotus Elise with a stretched body that’s fitted with an all-American 6.2-litre Chevrolet supercharged V8 engine. The carbon fibre Venom GT weighs just 1070kg, less than most small cars.


The base-model Venom’s will be offer 540kW of power and 1000Nm of torque from Corvette’s V8 engine. If you require more high performance model, they also have other two twin-turbo versions: a powerful 745kW/1220Nm model, and a super powerful 895kW/1490Nm variant.


With more power than a F1 car that means it is really fast and powerful, with Hennessey suggesting the GT could sprint from 0-100km/h in just 2.4 seconds, and have an enormous top speed of 421km/h.


The engine is mounted at the rear, just like in the four-cylinder Lotus Elise, with power then sent to the rear wheels mated with a six-speed manual transmission.


Keeping all that power on the road could be troublesome, but Hennessey has designed a programmable traction control system to help keep the car on the road or the track. Besides, it has an active aerodynamics system, including an adjustable rear wing, ensures that the right down-force is applied depending on the speed and situation. The Venom GT will also feature an adjustable suspension system which allows for adjustments to ride-height and also having 15-inch carbon-ceramic brakes.


The company’s Texas facility will be in charge of the engine side of the operation, and the powerplants will be air-freighted to the assembly facility near Silverstone, England.


The cars will be available in both right-hand and left-hand drive, and Hennessey says that buyers of the Venom GT will be offered a 1 day driver orientation and instruction program by a factory test driver at a track in the UK or USA prior to taking delivery of their super car.


Production of the Venom GT is limited to just 10 vehicles per year, and the company says it has already received orders for its first 4 cars. The pricing is expected to start at around US$600,000.

Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber as Red Bull dominated 2010 Malaysian Grand Prix

2010 Malaysian Grand Prix - Red Bull Racing


Sebastian Vettel was delighted with a win this season at the 2010 Malaysian Grand Prix at Sepang International Circuit, after missing out on potential victories in Bahrain and Australia. This is the first time the team has taken a podium in 2010, let alone a one-two win. Red Bull has taken pole position at all three grands prix this season, proving they have one of the strongest packages in F1.


2010 Malaysian Grand Prix - Ferrari


Ferrari drivers Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso were also on the charge, even if their strategy required a little less overtaking than Hamilton’s. Massa finished seventh just 3.5 seconds behind Hamilton, but beat the other McLaren on the track as Button’s tyres felt the strain of a 46-lap stint. Meanwhile, Alonso had been stuck in the draft of Massa for much of the race, as he manhandled a car that was suffering from a gearbox problem while downshifting. He too came up behind Button towards the end of the race, but as he pulled out to make a move into turn one, his engine blew-up in a puff of white smoke. That ensured eighth place for Button ahead of Jaime Alguersuari, who had a fantastic race in his Toro Rosso, and Nico Hulkenberg, who picked up his first F1 point in tenth.


2010 Malaysian Grand Prix - Michael Schumacher


Michael Schumacher’s race came to a premature end with a wheel-nut failure, forcing the seven-time world champion to watch Rosberg take Mercedes’ first 2010 podium from the paddock. His race lasted just nine laps and the retirement means he is now 26 points shy of Rosberg in the drivers’ championship.

Kia Forte Hatchback – Will there be Naza Forte Hatchback?

Kia Forte Hatchback 2010

Kia Forte Hatchback premieres at New York Auto Show. Kia Forte or also known as Kia Cerato Forte in Singapore, has a new hatchback variant. Personally i think it’s quite boxy from the angle. The sedan Forte looks better.

Kia Forte 5 door rear

As from the rear of Forte Hatchback, i think it looks better. It reminds me of VW’s Golf.The 5 door Forte it’s the third variant to join the current widely known Naza Kia Forte Sedan and Forte Koup (a 2 door coupe) available in certain markets.

Kia Forte Hatchback Diffuser

Focus from the lower rear, we can see a more sporty rear diffuser fitted to the Kia Fote hatchback. As the below photo shown, also fitted a rear spoiler and wiper for the Forte Hatchback.
