Isla Fisher is One Hot Lady in Red

Isla Fisher has earned her spot on the MILF list in this hot little number. Tight and red. It suits Isla very, very well. She’s at the premiere of her new animated flick Rango with Johnny Depp. Whatever. This chick has two kids with Sacha Baron Cohen. TWO. Hell, you may be able to make the argument with her that motherhood does a body good. Isla may be starring in a kids’ flick right now, but I’ll always think of her as that crazy, super horny chick from Wedding Crashers. She’s had my heart ever since she jacked Vince Vaughn off at the dinner table in that movie.

Christina Hendricks is Not Dieting

Relax all you chubby chasers, Christina Hendricks is not planning on taking up exercise and healthy eating anytime soon. From Fox: Christina Hendricks fans can relax. Despite reports to the contrary, the curvaceous star isn’t going on a diet anytime soon. Fans of the “Mad Men” star were recently shocked to read a report from the UK’s Daily Mail that the voluptuous beauty wanted to drop 35 pounds to fit in better with Hollywood’s crop of svelte stars. According to the Mail’s report, Hendricks had cut out carbs and alcohol after getting sick of all the talk of her being the curviest woman in Hollywood. But the sexy star tells HollywoodLife.com that she is “completely happy” with her body. “I’m not dropping 35 pounds,” she said, as she was shocked to learn about the report.

Alessandra Ambrosio Rocks a Bikini For a Day of Surfing and Sun in Hawaii

Alessandra Ambrosio hit the beach in a two-piece Saturday in Hawaii. She's off on a family vacation with her fiancé Jamie Mazur and their young daughter, Anja. The afternoon on the sand included a bit of surfing for Alessandra before she retired to a deck chair with Anja. It was apparently great fun for Alessandra, who tweeted, "surfing in Waikiki is just amazing!" We last saw Alessandra Ambrosio in her bikini earlier this Summer, in May, during a Memorial Day stroll in Malibu with her family and little dog. There's been lots of work for Alessandra since then. She hit the CFDA Awards in June and then went to her home country of Brazil to shoot ads for Colcci alongside Ashton Kutcher. Alessandra is resting up now, though, writing yesterday on Twitter, "Hawaii, sunset, spa — so relaxing!"

Leryn Franco is in a Bikini

Paraguayan javelin thrower Leryn Franco first rose to fame a few years ago when the internets discovered that she was pretty damn sexy, and on Monday she was spotted in a bikini in Miami. Presumably not winning at whatever she was doing. Because has a hot athlete ever won anything at all (see: Kournikova, Anna)? Unfortunately it's the same for us hot mathletes. I can crush a beer can between my abs, but I'll be damned if I haven't taken higher than second in the annual Calculus Bowl.

The 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics Part 2

As the second week begins, the U.S. remains on course for a historic medal haul, with a chance to take home the most hardware at the Winter Games for the first time in almost 80 years. The medals race is shaping up as a fight between the U.S. and Germany until the close of the games on Sunday.

Salinas Grandes - A Snow-White Desert Of Argentina

A cursory glance at this snow-white plains have thoughts of snow and cold. But this first impression is deceptive - the temperature in the Argentine salt desert Salinas Grandes, on some days reaching 45 degrees Celsius.

The Amazing Flight Which Saved A Herd Of Rhinos From Certain Death

Dangling from cords tied to their ankles, 19 hulking animals were transported out of the South African hills inaccessible by road in the country's Eastern Cape. And these incredible images show exactly how conservationists used a military helicopter to carry the herd of 1,400-kilo rhinos to their new home, away from poachers. Conservationists put the endangered beasts to sleep and hoisted one at a time for the 15-mile flight. The big move was orchestrated by World Wildlife Fund experts, who yesterday drove the rhinos 1,000 miles to fresh breeding ground in the northern Limpopo province. Today photographer Michael Raimondo, who captured the spectacular scenes, said each animal spent around 20 minutes in the air. He said: 'It was quite incredible. These things are so heavy - some of them weigh a couple of tons\

Critters

My folks' backyard is frequented by a number of chipmunks, squirrels, and an occasional ground hog. Over the years, there have been a few clever, comical chipmunks that have become friends. It's not something that happened overnight, though. It took a lot of patience and persistence (and almonds!) to get them each of them to interact with me on a regular basis. At the culmination of this process, I could almost always call them to the yard just by whistling. Buddi was the first chipmunk I befriended in this manner. I thought she was male early on (not being particularly aware of the differences between male and female chipmunks at that time), but then she disappeared for a month and showed up with three pups. She was a real character; very friendly, and she never hesitated to jump into my lap to get my attention. She visited us over four summers, though in the last summer she was a bit off and it was clear her health was waning.

PLANES, TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES

Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport LOr Blanc

With the partnership between Bugatti and the Königliche Porzellan-Manufatur Berlin (KPM) the renowned manufacturer emphasizes the ability in creating pieces of automotive art. The "L'Or Blanc" celebrates its world premiere with an exclusive unveiling ceremony on June 30, 2011 at the KPM workshops in Berlin. This unique version of a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport is the world's first motor car to wear the finest porcelain on its body, as well as in its cabin. It captivates with an abstract exterior design. The security officer nods, the door opens. Amidst pure white walls bright spotlights illuminate a Bugatti Grand Sport that is placed in the center of the spacious room. We have entered the hidden world of the Bugatti Design Studio. The team around Bugatti's Head of Design Achim Anscheidt works in a quiet and focused atmosphere as they walk around their latest object of desire.

Continental Shaft: The Best Cars You Can't Buy in the States

If the car industry's recent tumult has any upside, it's that after years of crowding dealerships with some… less than inspired domestic designs, automakers are finally reaching across borders to stay afloat in a keen, competitive market: Ford is importing models from its excellent European division, and Fiat's acquisition of Chrysler means we'll be seeing the first Stateside examples of the brand in almost thirty years. Still, that doesn't mean we'll get everything we really want. Here, we break down the best examples of the foreign cars that won't be arriving on our shores. Read it and weep.

Introducing GM’s Next Generation Head-Up Display

Technology is a wonderful thing when used appropriately and we have to admit although GM’s image for the next generation head-up display is pretty cool, we have to wonder how much safer it is actually making the driving experience. Let’s rewind a moment to illustrate just what this new technology will entail. GM R&D, Carnegie Mellon University, The University of Southern California, and other institutions are working together to create a full windshield head-up system that allows the driver to see in any type of weather condition turning the windshield into a device that will hopefully keep the driver aware of his surroundings and his eyes on the road.

Hair That's a Fright: George Hurst and the Hairy Olds

No history of American muscle cars would be complete without at least a passing mention of George Hurst, who became one of the era's most successful aftermarket manufacturers. Hurst grew up in Pennsylvania, dropping out of school at the age of 16 to join the Navy. When he was discharged in 1954, he became very active in the drag racing scene in eastern Pennsylvania. In the mid-fifties, he and his friend Bill Campbell started a garage in Abington, where they built aftermarket engine mounts for performance cars. Although Hurst had little formal training, he had a strong intuitive grasp of automotive engineering, and he was a natural showman, with a flair for clever promotions. After some early setbacks, Hurst and Campbell formed a partnership with Ed Almquist and Jonas Anchel, the co-founders of the speed shop Anco Industries. They developed several new products, including a revised engine mount design called Adjusta-Torque and a floor-mounted shift linkage for three-speed manual transmissions.

TECHNOLOGY & OTHER NEAT STUFF

How Monitor and HDTV Companies Cook Their Specs

Vision is our most amazing and complex sense, so it’s no surprise that display technology is so amazing and complicated. It’s also no surprise that most consumers don’t have a good understanding of how displays function, or the best way to select them, buy them, use them, and adjust them. Not only are displays getting more complicated and harder to understand, but the competition between manufacturers has gotten so brutal that marketing gimmicks—ploys that exploit the average consumer’s technical ignorance—are playing an increasing role in driving sales. The goal of this article is to point out and explain some of the most important myths, misconceptions, and misunderstandings about display technology. Much of what you’re going to read is like the classic tale of The Emperor’s New Clothes. What you’ve been told about the latest and greatest thing really isn’t there, or better, or meaningful, or even visible.

Whole-Tree Building: How to Craft Super-Natural Eco-Homes

The effect is astonishing: by using the natural shape of trees rather than milling them into dimensional lumber, the resulting architecture becomes organic and lifelike as if it were a living, breathing and growing structure – though correspondingly more difficult to construct, each custom branch and trunk needing to fit somehow in with the rest.

Geek Gadgets For Growing Plants Indoors

I set up this blog after many years of successfully growing plants indoors. Plants provide many health benefits and are also great fun to look after. I don't think that it's fair that only lucky people with gardens should get the chance to grow plants. Do you grow a kitchen herb garden in the windowsill or just outside your doorway? If so, the Philips designs of this non-spherical biosphere are certain you’ll become addicted to growing your very own crustaceans quickly.
