Dress to Impress

807008

My boyfriend and I were taking his 19-year-old niece to a weekend festival. When we arrived at her house to pick her up, she appeared in tasteful but very short shorts, and a tank top with spaghetti straps. A debate began immediately about appropriate dress. I took the girl’s side, recalling that when we began dating, I dressed the same way.

“Yes,” said my boyfriend sternly, “and I said something about it, didn’t I?”

Everyone looked at me. “Yeah,” I replied. “You said, ‘What’s your phone number?'”

The air that most Americans breathe may not be as clean as they think — depending on where they live, at least.

The 2009 report was based on data collected at some 900 monitoring sites across the country during a three-year period from 2005 through 2007. Researchers measured the air quality of different areas using three criteria — long-term particle pollution, short-term particle pollution and ozone concentration. All three forms of pollution have been shown to have negative health effects.

A human soul is a blend of duty, faith, morals and divinity. The duties that one commits in his life are measured by qualities, otherwise known as Gunas.

radha-krishna
There are three types of Gunas “Saatvik”, “Rajas”, “Taamas”.

gunas

“Saatvik” is the supreme and best quality associated with pure and friendly deeds done for humanity with pleasant thoughts of wellbeing.

The “Saatvik” believe in a simple and spiritual lifestyle, this quality denotes purity, calmness, intelligence and renunciation.  Saatvik consume’s the simplest and easily digestible form of food such as pulses, whole grains, vegetables and fruits with no delectable preparations. They abstain from alcoholic drinks, non-vegetarian foods, strong smelling vegetables such as onion and garlic. They sport simple comfortable attire with no dangling jewelry or ravishing fittings. They are simple minded and religiously inclined, with no malice for those who are with or against them. They do not desire for worldly possessions but rather render services for humanity and mankind selflessly.
“Rajas” are secondary associated with one’s qualities associated with power, vitality and dynamism.

The “Rajas” believe in a lavish and highly sociable lifestyle, of that comprising the luxuries of the world with desire for more splendors. Consume rich and delectable variety of foods and do not abstain from strong smelling veggies too. But rather keep distance from alcohol and non vegetarian stuff. They sport fashionable outfits with flaunting jewelry as they are more worldly inclined. They are rather greedy when it comes to fame and wealth, but not to the extent of hurting mankind for the sake of their desires. They are somewhat spiritual, but prefer socializing with their worldly bonds of humans through parties and fun filled vacations.
“Taamsik” are the lowest kind of qualities associated with deeds involving shrewdness, violence, and self centeredness.

The “Taamas” believe in a shrewd and self centered lifestyle, of that comprising the darkness, ignorance and inertness. Tamsik consumes very strong flavored variety of foods which are heavy to digest. They do not abstain from any kind of alcoholic drinks or non vegetarian foods. They sport a highly materialistic fashion style with the thought of showing off their superiority of status. They are the types that could dive to any extent in order to achieve their goals or materialistic desires as that of even harming a human or any worldly creature. They are not spiritually inclined and believe in the motto of ‘The survival of the fittest’- i.e. The strong may rule and the weak may perish.
As per the ‘Puraans’ and ‘Vedas’; these qualities are judged as per our lifestyle, behavior and the food we consume, which may not necessarily reflect a particular type in today’s world.

Nothing represents the best of the VIP world better than celebrity gamblers. They are rich, successful, and glamorous. These luminaries make the best out of the luxurious and pampering lifestyle that is offered to them by casinos, tournaments and basically anywhere they go, simply for their star appeal!

1 . Nokia 888 Communicator
Nokia definitely has the most interesting concept phones. Nokia 888 Communicator is a striking futuristic concept phone. The phone, which uses liquid batteries, speech recognition, flexible touchscreen and touch-sensitive body cover,is designed by Tamer Nakisci and won the Nokia Design Award

2 . Nokia Aeon
Nokia Aeon was presented by Nokia on their website in the Research & Development section. What is so great about this phone is that it looks like it will actually go into production next February. Of course, its just a rumor, but still, makes us hope to actually see it someday in the GSM shop. All we know about it for now is that its a touchscreen phone and it looks fantastic.

3 . Sky “Sleak n Slim”
“Sleek & Slim” from SKY is another concept based on touchscreen technology. The phone has a discretely glowing touchpad, hideaway keys and generally utterly-fashionable minimalist design.

4 . Benq-Siemes “Snaked”
Benq designers thought of women too and presented Snaked. This is a “reptile” looking phone, creepy somehow, but still is very cool. The Snaked is a fashion phone for sport loving women, because it also has body monitoring sensors to help the ladies keep those fine shapes.

5 . What You See is What You Get Concept
One thing is for sure about this concept phone they could’ve named it shorter. Designed by Pei-Hua Hang, the phone’s name comes from the fact that this concept no longer uses an LCD as viewfinder for the digital camera, instead it uses a transparent frame. And of course, interaction is made through a touchscreen

6 . Benq-Siemens “The Blackbox”
Black Box designed by Benq-Siemens uses a touch screen as its keypad and, depending on the functions you are using, the touch screen changes the control layout immediately.

7 . NEC Tag
Somehow similar to the Snaked concept, the NEC Tag is a flexible phone concept that can be , for example, hung from a belt or wrapped around the user’s arm. Interesting is that the phone has shape-memorizing material and sensors that allows the phone to change its shape according to the mode.

8 . TripleWatch
Though the idea of a cellphone watch is not so new, the TripleWatch designed by Manon Maneenawa has an interesting triple flip technique that allows the user to transform the watch into a normal cellphone. When used as a wrist watch, the phone has a speaker button that allows the user to answer the phone and hang up while driving.
