Valet crashes Lamborghini GallardoIt’s one less Gallardo Spyder in India in the meantime. Driving a supercar at speed isn’t for everyone. However driving a supercar in a controlled environment at specified speed isn’t difficult, but for this particular valet.

Le Meridien New Delhi Sovereign porch outdid it’s evening grandeur, but in the worst possible manner. Clearly this fated Lamborghini Gallardo didn’t move a few yards before it banged into halt. Clearly looks like the designated driver put the Gallardo in gear without thinking, and that’s that. The pricey white car banged into the first wall in its path, which in the first place shouldn’t have been in its path had the driver turned the car right as expected.

Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder crashResultantly, here’s a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder that no longer has a front, a crushed bonnet, a non functional mirror that’s hanging in despair, and a front body that has separated on impact. For all this, the wall does bear a noticeable dent. It is difficult to determine what else the driver chose to destroy based on scratches on the right door and over the air vent.

Lamborghini Gallardo crash hotelAs far as valet is concerned, a footnote behind most parking tags does mention, ‘The hotel is not responsible for damage and theft of the car.’ That’s certainly going to be argued over angry discussions.

Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder crash IndiaLamborghini India announced 29% sales growth for 2013 having sold 22 cars over 17 sold in 2012. Lamborghini reported 90 units sold in India to date at the start of 2014. It’s 1 less temporarily for the 100 odds lambos on Indian roads.

Mitsubishi team cleans up for charity
Verity May, PA to the MD of the company Lance Bradley, who organised the team, said: “We’re so pleased with how the car wash went. It was a great day and we’re really grateful to the support from the people of Cirencester. So many people turned up to have their cars cleaned and helped raise money for a worthy cause. We were certainly kept busy and we’d like to thank everyone who supported us by making cakes or donating buckets and sponges.”
This is Mitsubishi’s 2nd annual Race for Life participation with hopes to beat the £1,600 raised last year. Michelle Leighton, Cirencester Event Manager for Race for Life said: “It’s fantastic that the ladies at Mitsubishi are taking part in Cirencester again this year – we really appreciate their continued support. With their fundraising from last year and this year’s ambition to raise more, their contribution to Cancer Research UK will be really appreciated.”

Assam Rape Festival Fact or Fiction

Posted on : 07-11-2013 | By : admin | In : Uncategorized

0

The Assam Rape Festival In India Begins This Week. No, it does not. However, no harm reading through quickly. Here’s a very simple understanding after a first read of the original write-up.
1. Men in India are already beginning to celebrate as the annual Assam Rape Festival is just days away.
YES, I’m sure Rapists celebrate.
2 Every non-married girl age 7-16 will have the chance to flee to safety or get raped.
YES, that’s all girls can do if there’s a chance. Run away.
3 Madhuban Ahluwalia who heads up the annual festival told reporters why the event is so important. “This is a long time tradition in Assam dating back thousands of years,” says Ahluwalia. “We rape the evil demons out of the girls, otherwise they will cheat on us and we will be forced to kill them. So it is necessary for everyone.”
3. There’s no doubt that here men are believed to be superior. It’s a patriarchal society. And yes, rape is an age old tradition that is even glorified in mythology.
Godmen do rape devotees to down the devil.
Women must be raped because if they cheat it’s shameful to a family, and without doubt they will be murdered.
4 The Assam Festival began in 43 BC when Baalkrishan Tamil Nadu raped everyone in his village of Ludhiana. Baalkrishan Tamil Nadu is remembered every year at this 4 event, in fact the trophy given to the man with the most rapes is called “The Baalkrishan”.
4 This must have some more meaning. I don’t know the reference yet. Baal Krishnan could be a youthful Krishna who we know had a harem. The gopis. No clarity on why Ludhiana or Tamil Nadu are mentioned but either they may have the most reported cases, or the author randomly named 2 places, and it could refer to any place in general.
5 23-year-old Harikrishna Majumdar told reporters that he has been training all year for this event. “I’m going to get the most rapes this year. I’ve been practicing raping my sister and her friends every day. I will be rape superstar number one! I will get the Baalkrishan prize this year for sure!”
5 This is mot likely a reference to young girls who are very vulnerable to rape. The reference to friends could be again the same.
6 11-year-old Jaitashri Majumdar told reporters she almost made it through last year’s festival without getting raped. “I came so close to not getting raped. I almost got to the ‘rape-free-zone’ at the edge of town, but at the last minute 9 men jumped on me and raped me. Luckily I am just recovering now so I can participate in this year’s events, otherwise I would be put to death by stoning.”
6. Clearly talks about gang rapes, which are heard about most in North Indian hubs. The recovery and participation would be about how the risk of rape stands strong. Death by stoning is what happens. Here, of course they’re buried alive and other atrocities carried out.
The participation is classic because apparently women are by default willing participants of rape.
7 34-year-old Brian Barnett from Toronto who is visiting Assam on business told reporters he will be missing the festivities this year. “My company did not tell me anything about a rape festival happening while I was here. Are you serious, a rape festival? I’m getting the f*ck out of this backwards country tonight.”
7 Backward yes. Since we still let sweep women’s safety under a mat.
8 India is second in reported rapes in the world only behind the United States, though critics are quick to point out that is only because most rapes in India go unreported.
8 Don’t know about the statistics, but yes rapes go largely unreported.
9 For more information on the festival or if you would like to participate, please call the 24-hour Assam Rape Festival hotline at (785) 273-0325.
- See more at: http://nationalreport.net/assam-rape-festival-india-begins-week/#sthash.oLdKyN9x.LuxV9XiT.dpuf
9 Don’t know which number is listed here. Hopefully, it’s a hotline for crimes against women or for donations to help affected women.
Was I offended by the original satire. Nope.

Ford EcoSport India stomples Renault Duster mojo for Q3 2013, September sales 6203

With Ford India launching EcoSport at the end of June, they certainly turned around their fortunes here. By mid July, in 17 days of launch, Ford confirmed 30,000 bookings. Of course, delivery has been an issue while Ford has been working diligently in trying to cope with demand.

Ford-EcoSport

They also resorted to closing their order book to bridge the gap. Deliveries in the meantime have been growing in the last 3 months. For July August, and September, Ford EcoSport sales stand at 4715, 5372, and 6203 units. Sales for diesel units account for about 85% EcoSport sales. While Ford EcoSport has been ruling the roost, Renault Duster has felt the blow face first. What still remains the company’s bestseller has had to be content watching EcoSport walk away with potential customers.Before EcoSport launch, Renault was selling 5k+ Duster units a month, but that chutzpah has been ebbing away in Q3 2013. For July, August, and September 2013, Renault Duster sales stand at 3089, 2967, and 3973 units respectively. A marginally improved September sales report can be attributed to Ford EcoSport’s waiting period, which has prompted a few buyers not to wait the wait.

Interestingly, the not so new Mahindra Scorpio too has been rattling Renault Duster’s comfort zone gnawing at their sales aggressively. For July, August, and September 2013, Mahindra Scorpio sales stood higher than Renault Duster at 3,256, 3356, and 4,345 units respectively. In September, Mahindra Scorpio crossed the 4 lakh units sales mark.

Miley Cyrus and Sinéad O’Connor Twitter and Facebook updates. Who is Kenny Reitz @vampyahslayah

The ongoing online verbal tiff between Miley Cyrus and Sinéad O’Connor begins here. If you look at the image and head to the latter’s supposed Twitter account, you’ll be  greeted by  Kenny Reitz@vampyahslayah. When searching for her old tweets, there’s not much to find as almost all links lead to ‘Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!’

THE IMAGE ABOVE WAS FIRST UPLOADED BY MILEY CYRUS on 3RD OCTOBER
If you try to do it manually and keep scrolling down to find the tweets from the earlier days it’s a futile attempt. Maybe a search is more fruitful if Kenny Reitz@vampyahslayah is followed on Twitter, but I wouldn’t know.
THE SAME IMAGE WAS UPLOADED BY THE @vampyahslayah TWITTER ACCOUNT HOLDER AFTER MILEY CYRUS’ UPLOAD. HERE HE TAGS A FRIEND AND POINTS HIS ATTENTION TO THE TWITTER HANDLE MENTIONED

The image used on Miley Cyrus’s Twitter account makes the dialog appear as recent updates within a timeline of 8-9 hours earlier. On the other hand, O’Connor’s Facebook updates have clearer language and are devoid of incessant typos as is clear in the image uploaded on Twitter. Some work went into finding that old screenshot, and surely Miley Cyrus would not have found it without help.

As far as Twitter user Kenny Reitz@vampyahslayah is concerned, he could hardly believe his good fortune when he found out about Miley’s update.

In the development since 3rd October it would appear that the current @vampyahslayah account user is the one trolling Twitter space but if you look at the timeline from screenshots of both accounts provided here, it’s clear Miley uploaded the image first.

From what I think trolling is, @vampyahslayah may not have an idea what it really is. This becomes even clearer from Sinéad O’Connor’s Facebook update, which is an affirmation of the fact that those tweets were in fact made by her about 2 years earlier.

The latest update by @vampyahslayah is a clear pointer to what really happened, and he’s not really a troll, but thinks he is.


In response to, ‘Miley Ray Cyrus ‏@MileyCyrus 3 Oct Before Amanda Bynes…. There was….’, Sinead O’Connor has written 2 open letter’s to the younger singer. Since, her website has been slowed by traffic volumes, they have been posted on her Facebook page alongside another update related to the matter at hand.

Here’s a copy of  both letters.

Dear Miley,

I wasn’t going to write this letter, but today i’ve been dodging phone calls from various newspapers who wished me to remark upon your having said in Rolling Stone your Wrecking Ball video was designed to be similar to the one for Nothing Compares… So this is what I need to say… And it is said in the spirit of motherliness and with love.

I am extremely concerned for you that those around you have led you to believe, or encouraged you in your own belief, that it is in any way ‘cool’ to be naked and licking sledgehammers in your videos. It is in fact the case that you will obscure your talent by allowing yourself to be pimped, whether its the music business or yourself doing the pimping.

Nothing but harm will come in the long run, from allowing yourself to be exploited, and it is absolutely NOT in ANY way an empowerment of yourself or any other young women, for you to send across the message that you are to be valued (even by you) more for your sexual appeal than your obvious talent.

I am happy to hear I am somewhat of a role model for you and I hope that because of that you will pay close attention to what I am telling you.

The music business doesn’t give a shit about you, or any of us. They will prostitute you for all you are worth, and cleverly make you think its what YOU wanted.. and when you end up in rehab as a result of being prostituted, ‘they’ will be sunning themselves on their yachts in Antigua, which they bought by selling your body and you will find yourself very alone.

None of the men oggling you give a shit about you either, do not be fooled. Many’s the woman mistook lust for love. If they want you sexually that doesn’t mean they give a fuck about you. All the more true when you unwittingly give the impression you don’t give much of a fuck about yourself. And when you employ people who give the impression they don’t give much of a fuck about you either. No one who cares about you could support your being pimped.. and that includes you yourself.

Yes, I’m suggesting you don’t care for yourself. That has to change. You ought be protected as a precious young lady by anyone in your employ and anyone around you, including you. This is a dangerous world. We don’t encourage our daughters to walk around naked in it because it makes them prey for animals and less than animals, a distressing majority of whom work in the music industry and it’s associated media.

You are worth more than your body or your sexual appeal. The world of showbiz doesn’t see things that way, they like things to be seen the other way, whether they are magazines who want you on their cover, or whatever.. Don’t be under any illusions.. ALL of them want you because they’re making money off your youth and your beauty.. which they could not do except for the fact your youth makes you blind to the evils of show business. If you have an innocent heart you can’t recognise those who do not.

I repeat, you have enough talent that you don’t need to let the music business make a prostitute of you. You shouldn’t let them make a fool of you either. Don’t think for a moment that any of them give a flying fuck about you. They’re there for the money.. we’re there for the music. It has always been that way and it will always be that way. The sooner a young lady gets to know that, the sooner she can be REALLY in control.

You also said in Rolling Stone that your look is based on mine. The look I chose, I chose on purpose at a time when my record company were encouraging me to do what you have done. I felt I would rather be judged on my talent and not my looks. I am happy that I made that choice, not least because I do not find myself on the proverbial rag heap now that I am almost 47 yrs of age.. which unfortunately many female artists who have based their image around their sexuality, end up on when they reach middle age.

Real empowerment of yourself as a woman would be to in future refuse to exploit your body or your sexuality in order for men to make money from you. I needn’t even ask the question.. I’ve been in the business long enough to know that men are making more money than you are from you getting naked. Its really not at all cool. And its sending dangerous signals to other young women. Please in future say no when you are asked to prostitute yourself. Your body is for you and your boyfriend. It isn’t for every spunk-spewing dirtbag on the net, or every greedy record company executive to buy his mistresses diamonds with.

As for the shedding of the Hannah Montana image.. whoever is telling you getting naked is the way to do that does absolutely NOT respect your talent, or you as a young lady. Your records are good enough for you not to need any shedding of Hannah Montana. She’s waaaaaaay gone by now.. Not because you got naked but because you make great records.

Whether we like it or not, us females in the industry are role models and as such we have to be extremely careful what messages we send to other women. The message you keep sending is that its somehow cool to be prostituted.. its so not cool Miley.. its dangerous. Women are to be valued for so much more than their sexuality. we aren’t merely objects of desire. I would be encouraging you to send healthier messages to your peers.. that they and you are worth more than what is currently going on in your career. Kindly fire any motherfucker who hasn’t expressed alarm, because they don’t care about you.

The next letter reads as follows:

ANOTHER OPEN LETTER TO MILEY CYRUS

Miley… Really? Who the fuck is advising you? Because taking me on is even more fuckin’ stupid than behaving like a prostitute and calling it feminism. You have posted today tweets of mine which are two years old, which were posted by me when I was unwell and seeking help so as to make them look like they are recent. In doing so you mock myself and Amanda Bynes for having suffered with mental health issues and for having sought help.

I mean really really… who advises you? have you any idea how stupid and dangerous it is to mock people for suffering illness? You will yourself one day suffer such illness, that is without doubt. The course you have set yourself upon can only end in that, trust me.

I am staggered that any 20 yr old woman of the 21st century could behave in such a dangerous and irresponsible manner as to not only send the signal to young women that its ok to act like prostitutes but also to the signal that those who have suffered or do suffer mental health problems are to be mocked and have their opinions invalidated. Have you no sense of danger at all? or responsibility? Remove your tweets immediately or you will hear from my lawyers. I am certain you will be hearing from all manner of mental health advocacy groups also. It is not acceptable to mock any person for having suffered.

It is most unbecoming of you to respond in such a fashion to someone who expressed care for you. And worse that you are such an anti-female tool of the anti-female music industry. I hope that you will apologise to Amanda Bynes and to any person who has been wounded by your mockery of those who have suffered. And I hope that you will wake up and understand that you in fact are a danger to women.

Furthermore you posted a photo of me tearing the pope’s photo .. as if to imply insanity.. by doing so all you have achieved is to expose your staggering ignorance. I suggest you read The Philadelphia Report, The Boston Report, all the reports which will illuminate for you why that action of mine remains sane and valid. By mocking it you mock every child who suffered sexual abuse at the hands of priests and had it covered by the Vatican. You could really do with educating yourself, that is if you’re not too busy getting your tits out to read.

HER FACEBOOK UPDATE TODAY

Another tweet by Miley Cyrus simply went with the hashtag, #SNL followed by a picture of Sinead O’Connor’s 1992 moment when she tore a picture of the Pope on Saturday Night Live.

The next tweet to follow read, ‘Sinead. I don’t have time to write you an open letter cause Im hosting & performing on SNL this week.’

Her next update, ‘So if youd [sic] like to meet up and talk lemme know in your next letter. :)

Hopefully, this gets resolved soon. In the meantime, answers to the following questions are welcome:

Who is a troll?

Who are those Twitter users who liked and retweeted Miley Cyrus’ ‘Before Amanda Bynes…. There was…. pic.twitter.com/6JZPVnunPc’ tweet?

Why do people have this need to update Twitter without thinking twice?

Is it alright for artists to fight online?

Is it true twerking is an ancient yoga move?

Were/are you a Sinéad O’Connor fan?

PLEASE NOTE: ALL IMAGES,  SCREENSHOTS, VERBATIM, AND TWEETS ARE COPIED AS IS FROM OFFICIAL ACCOUNTS OF THE INDIVIDUALS AFOREMENTIONED.

red bull dakar rally 2013 (10)Dakar 2013 saw Red Bull sponsored teams victorious in the truck and bike categories.  Cyril Despres claimed his fifth Dakar victory across the 8500 kms of harsh terrain in South America. Astride a KTM, Despres achieved his second consecutive win in the rally even though he received a penalty due to which he had to change engines midway.This second consecutive win was even more noteworthy for Despres due to the fact that it was the first time he was able to defend his title. A feat of winning the Dakar two years in a row is rare and last achieved by Fabrizio Meoni over a decade ago. In the truck category, Team Kamaz’s Eduard Nikolaev also achieved victory at the Dakar 2013 winning in the truck category by over 37 minutes, thus making him the first truck driver in the history of these races to win the competition without taking first place in any individual stages. Nikolaev who commenced his racing career as a mechanic was first while his team mates Ayrat Mardeev and Andrey Karginov came in second and third consecutively.

South African Giniel de Villiers also put up an impressive performance and can in second place in buggy events finishing 43 minutes behind defending champion Stephane Peterhansel in a Toyota Hilux. Things were not as promising for the Qatar Red Bull Rally Team who had to step out of the competition early.

Cyril Despres had this to say, “Of course every win at the Dakar is special but this one stands out for me because it is the first time I have been able to defend my title. Winning the Dakar two years in a row is rare and nobody has done it since Fabrizio Meoni ten years ago.”

Eduard Nikolaev had this to say, “All I have been concentrated on since we arrived in South America was fighting minute by minute over every kilometre I drove in our truck. To come out of that after such an intense fifteen days with the victory is something that I simply can’t put into words. It’s simply incredible and I’m on cloud nine right now.” he said.

Al-Attiyah had this to say, “Despite having such a short period of time to prepare we still managed to win five of the eight stages we completed. What we achieved at the 2013 Dakar with the Qatar Red Bull Rally Team was really remarkable and I’m so proud to have been a part of it.” Photo Gallery (11 images)
