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.isabel marant sneaker

Three promising Formula Masters China Series (FMCS) drivers have had their first taste of the Audi R8 LMS Cup car at an exclusive test at the Sepang International Circuit.

Rewarded for their strong results in the first half of the 2014 season, FMCS Drivers Classification leader James Munro (17) of New Zealand, Best Chinese Driver Trophy leader Yuan Bo and Indonesia’s Andersen Martono (17) spent Monday working with former Formula 1 driver Alex Yoong, who currently races in the Audi R8 LMS Cup, as they tested the Audi R8 LMS Cup car for the first time. The collaboration between FMCS and the Audi R8 LMS Cup highlights the numerous opportunities provided by Volkswagen Group China to FMCS drivers. 

Given the valuable chance to impress Audi representatives with their talent, speed and ability to master the unfamiliar car quickly, the trio did not disappoint. Regularly lapping in two minutes 11 seconds on the 5.543 km circuit, Martono, Munro and Yuan demonstrated the benefits of the strong motorsport foundation they are receiving via FMCS.

“We are delighted that Formula Masters China Series drivers James Munro, Yuan Bo and Andersen Martono had a strong day of testing in the Audi R8 LMS Cup car,” said Dominic Lyncker, Director Motorsport, Volkswagen Group China. “FMCS was created precisely for this reason – to provide the region’s top talents with a solid motorsport foundation and to provide opportunities between FMCS drivers and the Volkswagen Group China motorsport family.”

Established in 2013, FMCS has already proven its efficacy: reigning FMCS champion Aidan Wright of Australia graduated from FMCS to the Audi R8 LMS Cup, while Hong Kong’s Matthew Solomon races in both FMCS and the Audi R8 LMS Cup. FMCS driver Ronald Wu of Hong Kong also made his R8 LMS Cup debut at Fuji earlier this year.

“FMCS is an excellent platform for developing young drivers from formula cars to GT racing. Aidan Wright, Matt Solomon and Ronald Wu have already been proving their potential in the Audi R8 LMS Cup. The test at Sepang was a great opportunity to evaluate more of China and the region’s rising talents,” said Rene Koneberg, Director of Audi Sport customer racing Asia. “We were impressed by how quickly the three drivers adapted to the Audi R8 LMS Cup car and perhaps in the future we will see them return to race with us.”

Formula Masters China Series will next be in action from September 19-21 for four races at the Zhuhai International Circuit.

Ford Posts All-Time Monthly Sales Record in Malaysia, July Sales Jump 60 Percent

Ford today announced that July sales were an all-time monthly record in Malaysia – besting its previous record performance in June – with overall retail sales that jumped 60 percent year-over-year to 1,390 units.

The record month was driven by continuing strong demand for the popular Ranger, Fiesta and Kuga nameplates and an expanding Ford showroom in Malaysia.

Class-defining Ford Ranger continues to be one of the best-selling pickups in the market this year all-new Ford Kuga SUV

“This is a great way to kick-off the second half of the year. We know that in addition to prioritising value for money, Malaysian drivers also look for segment-leading safety features and smart technologies. With this record sales month, our global Ford vehicles are clearly delivering on these needs,” said David Westerman, managing director, Malaysia and Asia Pacific Emerging Markets, Ford Motor Company.

July retail sales of the class-defining Ranger pickup soared 115 percent year-over-year in July to 868 units – its best-ever monthly performance in Malaysia. Year-to-date, Ranger is the second-best-selling pickup truck in Malaysia, with sales up 53 percent to 4,535 units.

The full Ranger line-up features an unmatched safety package in Malaysia, and is now equipped with additional active and passive safety features, including Ford’s Electronic Stability Program (ESP) across all variants and ISOFIX mounts for child seats in the Wildtrak, as well as all XLT and XL Double Cab variants.

The new Fiesta delivered July retail sales that surged 158 percent year-over-year to 347 units, boosted by strong demand for Ford’s high-performance 1.0L EcoBoost engine. The 1.0L EcoBoost engine, which was recently named International Engine of the Year for the third consecutive year, delivers class-leading power and fuel efficiency in Malaysia. 

The stylish all-new Kuga SUV also contributed to the record monthly performance with July sales of 102 units, bringing its year-to-date total to 580 units. 

Ford’s overall year-to-date sales have now risen 30 percent to 7,910 units.

“Our momentum this year will be given another boost with the launch of the all-new EcoSport SUV later this month. The addition of another segment-leading global Ford vehicle will also help to continue our successful product-led transformation in Malaysia,” said Westerman.

The all-new EcoSport compact urban SUV will help to define a whole new vehicle segment in Malaysia. An aspirational alternative to the compact car, the EcoSport’s blend of versatility and smart connectivity will appeal to customers who live their urban lives to the fullest and love exploring the world outside the city.
