Why Do Fashion Designers Prefer to Display Their Collections on Skinny, Anorexic Models? Why Don't W

Why do fashion designers prefer to display their collections on skinny, anorexic models? Why don't we see "healthy" models walking the ramp more often?

Would you buy a car which is not properly displayed in a good ambience showrooms?

Dire help needed from fashion designers!!?

First of all study fabrics whenever you have the chance. See how they drape, cheque out the feel, and experiment with the cut as you grow as a designer. You might also want to try some of the patterns sold in fabric stores and on EBay to refine your pattern making skills and learn some of the basics in regard to sewing. Hold off on the knitting unless you plan on making handmade sweaters. Concentrate on fabrics and even experiment on the use of fabrics used for sofas and pillows. Doing so will increase your knowledge and assist you in your design process. It's always good though to know how to sketch the design out as well as learn what colours and textures go with what. As for buttons and such, EBay and Craigslist offer possibilities as do a number of on-line fabric stores. Either google or yahoo to find them. If you happen to be in the San Francisco Bay Area there's a great fabric/button store called Britex that sells couture fabrics and buttons. In New York try seventh and sixth avenues. As for schools, apply to Parsons as well as F.I.T. in New York, The Chicago Art Institute in Chicago, The Academy of Art in San Francisco, and you could even go for F.I.D.M. in Los Angeles though that tends to specialise more in fashion merchandising. Hope this helped. Cheers

How to Start a Business in the Fashion Design Industry

For many, seeing their names on a clothing label is the ultimate dream. If you have long loved playing with fashion and feel that the world of fashion could be improved by the inclusion of your design, jumping into this fast-paced industry may be a goal to which you aspire. While new fashion designers make names for themselves every year, this industry is not one that is easy to enter, but instead one that you must dedicate yourself to gaining entry into. Build your skills. While there is no mandate that fashion designers hold a professional training certification, if you lack this foundation you may find yourself perplexed by some of the concepts or terminology within the industry. To enhance your chances of success, obtain an education before you actively start trying to make your name. Develop a portfolio. Take photos of models wearing your designs to create a look book for yourself, featuring your best work. You will likely start this process during your schooling and can then simply continue after you finish, updating this portfolio regularly. Create a label. While your label will likely not be as immediately coveted as some, you should craft a label that identifies designs as yours and sets them apart from the rest. Feature your company name prominently on this label to start to build brand recognition. Hold a fashion show. Arrange for a show at a local venue, or apply for a slot within a larger fashion show. At the show, display some of your best looks, giving customers a taste of what you have to offer. Sell your products. Offer your products up for sale immediately after your fashion show so interested consumers can get their hands on them right away. Either sell your goods independently, working directly with consumers, or sell them to boutiques and stores that will ultimately resell your looks to their buyers. Respond to critiques. Your first attempts at fashion design will likely not be without fault. As you receive criticism, use it as a learning tool, making modifications to your line to correct any perceived issues.

I'm interested in becoming a fashion designer?

I am also an aspiring future fashion designer. I do not know that much about the specifics of the industry yet, but I am very passionate about fashion, which is all you really need right now. I suggest taking a fashion design class. They will teach you about all the fundamentals that I can not explain to you right now. Designers get their inspirations from everywhere. The streets. Different cities. Different countries. You do not exactly have to know how to sew. I do not either, but it would be good to learn and get better at figure drawing and sketching different outfits. Pick up a book at the library about fashion illustration. Look through magazines and cut out what you like to help inspire. Get out there!

These New Plus-size Swim Brands Are Changing the GameWhen I was growing up, the two most important questions I asked when I shopped for a swimsuit were: Does it come in black? And does it have "tummy control" to smooth out my midsection? I always felt like slimming fabric was a nonnegotiable feature, because if I did not hide and minimize my body as much as possible, I would be bullied. My swimsuits never matched my outgoing, fun personality. Instead, it was all about function, the goal being looking as small as possible. Every swimsuit I owned from ages 11 to 28 fit that bill. But that is not the way I live my life anymore-with swimwear or any other category of clothing. And thankfully, emerging plus-size swimsuit brands and I are on the same page. Even though the selection of swimsuits for shoppers over a size 18 is not as vast as that of our straight-size counterparts, there are designers popping up left and right offering trendy cuts, bold patterns, and vibrant colors that actually make you feel excited to go to the beach. There are the newcomers like Andie Swim and Summersalt, the classic brands like Anthropologie and Loft that are expanding their sizing to offer people of all shapes and sizes the opportunity to be stylish and confident all summer long. I rounded up 10 of the best new plus-size swimsuit brands for everything from high-waist bikinis to cutout one-pieces.4. – New Zealand's Largest Wedding ShowWhether you are just engaged or after the perfect finishing touch, the Bride & Groom Wedding Show is a must-attend event for all couples planning their dream wedding and honeymoon.

How do you deal with difficult designers?Some clients just need to be fired. If you are delivering the product on time, within negotiated terms, within quality controls and are proud of your work, just let the guy go. You can do this by quoting prices that are fair for each job, and allowing the client to take or leave the deal at will, no hard feelings9. Is this a nice design at all?Yes. It's a nice design at all. It's a nice design. Just be aware that designers and optic scientists have found consistently that it's hard for us to focus on complementary colors (like red and green, blue and orange or yellow and purple) when they are juxtaposed. You did not do it there but the light blue is almost greenish and you might be more thoughtful about using that red/light blue juxtaposition in the future. It was not a mistake though. It's well done
Fashion Designers Finally Notice That Hot Dude
What are Hot Dudes Reading actually reading. You know the ones, the guys spotted and surreptitiously snapped on the subway with their heads buried in books. In under a month, this anonymous Instagram account, with just over 20 posts, has pulled in more than 300,000 followers, and its safe to assume the draw is not their actual reading matter.It seems far-fetched that so many people would find themselves clicking on images of, say, a sensitive beard farmer in a knit cap reading Lena Dunhams memoir or a handsome lug in a Carhartt parka perusing what looks to be the Atlantic, until you remember that guys how they look and what theyre wearing have reached a new level of cultural fascination.If you have any doubts about that, consider that on the first day of the mens wear shows at Lincoln Center, V.I.P. guests were ushered discreetly to the Priority Access line to sit on bleachers and watch models parade around in quilted parkas by Richard Chai. Yes, that day is upon us.And come July, when a dedicated mens wear week will be inaugurated at Skyline Clarkson Square, those with a passionate if not in every case occupational interest in the last word in bomber jackets, luxury sweatpants and cashmere Crombie coats will finally have a home.Instead, during the past week, they raced across town through the slush, braving bitter cold Lincoln Center to Wall Street, Hudson to East Rivers and mostly the hectic commute turned out to be worthwhile.Unlike their counterparts in London or Paris, designers here tend to play it safe. This sometimes results in workmanlike seasons when you are more likely to encounter theme-and-variation changes than the riddles and explorations of, say, an artist like Rick Owens, whose recent collection was so upside down and backward that a wearer would be challenged to put Tab A into Slot B.Still, New York can be counted on for fun and good humor, and five years into his tenure at Lacoste, Felipe Baptista Olivera showed how much he has loosened up his design brief for the storied tennis label.Im thinking outside the box within the box, if that makes any sense, the designer said on Saturday. It doesnt, of course, but who cares?On Saturday, Mr. Olivera staged a witty show whose stated sources of inspiration were winter tennis clothes or the 1930s and that perennial favorite of fashion, The Royal Tenenbaums. The candy-colored track suits and teddy bear coat; the Bjorn Borgstyle tennis sweatband; the coats with four sleeves, as if one had been slouched into atop another, were almost direct Wes Anderson quotations.Sloping down the runway with a sly smirk and wearing a tan suit over a polo shirt, the French model and inveterate goofball Felix Gesnouin was Richie Tenenbaum to the life.It was a witty and economical show, its message transmitted clearly. In that sense it contrasted sharply with Ralph Laurens presentation, which opened the week.Few have more shrewdly or diligently mined the iconography of Americana to create a signature style than Mr. Lauren. Fewer still possess his canniness when sourcing and editing its component parts.Yet somewhere between the high-glamour, high-end Purple Label evening clothes he showed in a series of tableaux vivants staged inside his lavish Madison Avenue headquarters and sections devoted to equestrian-themed suiting or else the rough-wear and ski duds displayed in a phantasmagorical Polo Ralph Lauren presentation, the plot got muddled.We were in an Edwardian hunting lodge, then St. Moritz, then a polo stable, then an aprs-ski party at the Caribou Club. The color black was an uncharacteristic stylistic through-line. Squid inky and luxurious, it was rendered as a notch-collar cashmere dinner jacket but also a black-tie boiler suit. Skinny jeans were paired with Michelin Man-scale down puffers in the colors of Candy Crush. Except for the puffers, the suits were generally shrunk almost to pipe-cleaner proportions, a curious choice in a season when many designers suddenly have taken a lively interest in the fat-cat silhouettes on which Mr. Lauren built his brand.If there is one thing on which all contemporary designers seem to agree, its that, going forward, trousers will either be softly tubular or as billowing as a spinnaker. That skinny suit thing is for now kaput.Every single collection has them in some way, shape or form, said Tom Kalenderian, the mens fashion director of Barneys New York, referring to the slouchy and yet luxurious sweatpants that are fast gaining ground on khakis and jeans as staples of work-wear in the age of the open-space workplace. What the chino or the white T-shirt was to postwar America is now being replaced by sweats, he said.Todd Snyder produced what may be the most desirable ones seen in a notably clean collection that alternated tidily tailored corduroy suits and pared-down jackets of shearling or leather with snug sweatpants and shirts categorizable as ath-leisure.Other designers worked in what you might call similar bandwidths. Ovadia & Sons produced a grouping that leaned heavily on knitwear and wardrobe staples like cropped shearling bomber jackets, immaculately detailed and military in its discipline. Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne at Public School dipped into their 90s hip-hop boyhoods to assemble a collection of highly commercial layered separates that capitalized on a silhouette shift already underway: short jacket over knee-length tunic or sweater, trousers under it all, each element delineating a separate anatomical zone.In a nod, as he said backstage, to the nostalgia inherent in futurism, Patrik Ervell brought off a collection of drop-shoulder jackets, bombers with kangaroo-pouch pockets, hugely oversize trousers and footwear so exaggeratedly rounded it wasnt clear whether it was designed to shoe men or horses.Though it came accompanied by some rote blather about power and gender-role reversal, Shayne Olivers Hood by Air show was once you eliminated the shoulderless coats, sleeveless tunic gilets, super-voluminous pleated trousers, stocking masks with graffiti faces drawn on them almost ostentatiously marketable.That remains one of the surprises about this label. Despite its reputation for street cred, HBA has all along prospered by offering unobjectionable mainstream clothes. Along with Marcelo Burlon, Fear of God and Virgil Ablohs Off-White, HBA seems to have a lock on the ubiquitous high-end clothing category with the awful name ath-leisure.Hood by Air makes fine luxurious sweatpants, for instance, trousers that, while they look cool on hangers or runways, do have obvious drawbacks. Unless you happen to be as fastidious about your offhand hotness as those Hot Dudes Reading appear to be, ath-leisure duds can devolve pretty quickly into slob wear. And who posts Instagram pictures of that?Undoubtedly the most lugubrious show of the week was the Valentines Day extravaganza that Moncler Grenoble held at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. This bit of theatrics was engineered by the Belgian Etienne Russo, who in the past staged flash mobs at Grand Central Terminal and took over Wollman Rink.Here, pairs of models concealed inside a giant heart-shaped candy box suddenly appeared when the lid was raised. Hydraulic lifts laboriously pumped them up and down into the coffinlike heart. Even Michel Gauberts soundtrack of love-themed oldies was not enough distraction from Mr. Russos basic miscalculation. It is hard to imagine a more static way of showing off expensive active-sports clothes.Perhaps the most compelling shows of the week came from Steven Cox and Daniel Silver at Duckie Brown and from Tim Coppens, the Belgian designer who, if he didnt start the sweatpants trend, was present at its creation. With his lean tunic coats and his trousers with punk embroideries, and especially in a group of coats and pants inspired by canvas rucksacks, Mr. Coppens demonstrated why his rightful place is at the front of the current pack of mens designers.And at Duckie Brown, Mr. Cox and Mr. Silver once again gave proof that, in a world dominated by stylists and their hackneyed tricks, authentic design is alive and well.The Duckie Brown collection had all the characteristics for which this pair is known. There was gender play in the softness of diaphanous silky fabrics used for mens shirting; in funnel and kimono necklines; in a muted palette of ivory and pale powder pink; in the voluminous and yet somehow still masculine four-pleat trousers that might have been unearthed from the wardrobe of a pimp from the zoot-suit era.There was assurance in an inventive staging that did away with the division between the front and back of the house. And there was hearty confidence in pursuing a vision that owes little to current trends. Alas, as Mr. Silver noted after their fine show, there is no guarantee this will not be Duckie Browns last.We used to have all these partnerships, and now we dont, he said. Were not closing. We hope to continue. But you cant do this on air.Interested in Fashion Week? Follow the conversation at

How And Why Truck Tires Blow OutTire scraps are a common sight on many highways. Many truck crashes are due to a driver losing control of a semi after the tire blows out. Have you ever wondered why tires blow out or how you can prevent a tire blowout? Keep reading to learn more. Hotter weather makes tires more prone to blowouts. The most common months for tire blowouts are from May through October, but they can happen at any time of the year, especially in states with warm temperatures year round. When the weather is hotter and you are traveling at a high speed for a long distance while carrying a heavy load, tires are more likely to fail. Older tires are more likely to fail. Truck tires can last for thousands of miles, but they eventually need to be replaced like any vehicle. Semi tires are subject to more wear and tear compared to regular vehicle tires since they travel further more often and carry heavy loads on a regular basis. Tires should be inspected frequently to make sure they are not deteriorating. Underinflation is one of the most common reasons truck tires blow out. Without proper air pressure, the tire can not handle the weight of the truck and its cargo. Tires that are underinflated are more likely to flex beyond their limits, leading a tire to failure. Always check truck tire pressure before heading out on a long haul. Potholes and uneven pavement are all over the highway. If you hit a pothole or a bump in the road traveling at a fast enough speed, the pavement can cut through the tire and cause a blowout. Other times, the tire wo not fail when it hits the uneven pavement or pothole, but the hit will weaken the tire making it more likely to blow out at a different time. Although tire blowouts can happen to even the most prepared driver, there are a few precautions to take to help prevent a tire blowout: Perform regular tire maintenance. If proper maintenance is not done regularly, it puts everyone in danger each time the semi hits the road. Inspect tires before you hit the road. Check for cracks, holes or any other issues with the tire before heading out. Maintain proper tire inflation. Before you head out, check and make sure the tires are inflated to the proper air pressure. If it is an especially hot day, check the tire pressure each time you take a break. Tire pressure can fluctuate in extreme temperatures. Learn more tips for safe trucking on our blog.

Simple&efficient Slider Module for the Following Purpose
Views Slideshow is not a bad way to go. It will probably take some working with css/templates/views to get it to display the way you want, but it is the most used module, so if you find yourself up against a wall using it, there's a good chance someone's already has done it and has written a tutorial, or would answer a question. There are a few other modules out there you could look at. A quick search I found this page, which has a decent listAlso a very in-depth comparison on the different modules out there from drupal. org.1. Is there a common home vegtable that i can feed my red eared slider babies? and how should i prepare it?When I first got my turtles I tried lots of different fruit and veg, They just left the ones they did not like. Some of their faves are Pear just chop up a litle bit, carrot...they skin peelings, they do not seem to like strawberries, bananas or grapes. Their favorite is mango. They have never liked letuce tho!.2. Content Sliders (Nivo Slider) and SEOThe most important thing is what google sees. You do not care what JavaScript does to the images. You care what Google reads.Either use Fetch as Google or Lynx Web Browser to see how your website looks like from search engine perspective. So first thing first - you should use alt tags on your images. This way it's more google-friendly, and actually becomes valid W3C code.Secondly - as far as I can see on Nivo Slider website it's using quite clean HTML inputso you should not be bothered at all with the fact that is slices images. It could slice them, rotate, turn into a thousand pieces - it would not matter at all. Google cannot see that. What should interest you is the HTML code. So your best bet in putting the description would be by using the longdesc attribute on img tag. Alternative is that you use divs that are forced to be hidden. Like that:But I am not sure if they wo not collide with slider script, and doing things like that in general is a bad practice.Third way would be to use progressive enhancement, and either - put your text descriptions in a placeholder Div, or do not put it at all onto a website. In first case you would want to replace your placeholder div holding your content with actual slider AFTER the main content is loaded (either use simple JS content or AJAX). In second case you would add a slider into the proper spot after the main content is loaded (again: AJAX/JS) and in terms of SEO: Work as if slider would not be there. Prioritize content instead (which is IMHO the best thing you can do).3. do red eared slider turtles shells stay smooth?First of all, your question is extremely worrying. You bought a red eared slider because it was cute? Turtles need extreme care. I am not entirely sure about the adult turtles' shells staying smooth but I can tell you one thing for sure, your turtle's shell will go soft if you do not take care of it properly. Soft-shell is an illness that turtles can acquire from not being looked after properly. You were right about them basking to harden their shell. They do this for just the reason of preventing themselves from getting Soft-shell. For this you need a UVA and UVB lamp so that they can get the sun's nutrients. You need to get your turtle a big enough tank as well with a good filter. I suggest a Fluval filter and probably a 20 gallon tank to start. Try getting it used because it's cheaper. Make sure you are feeding your turtle properly (mostly proteins when it's young and progressively more vegetables as it ages). I hope that I am giving you information that you already know.4. Where should my baby red eared slider sleep at night?Turtles usually prefer to sleep in the water at night, where they feel less vulnerable. They like to rest just below the surface of the water, where they can lift their heads out to breathe. If you are concerned about the water depth, you can make a small platform just beneath the water or add some plants (real or plastic) or other decor that juts out of the water slightly so your turtle can rest on them while still being able to lift his head up to breathe. If you have a submersible water heater, you probably would not need the heat lamp at night. I have a Turtle Topper (above tank basking area) for my painted turtle. It has a platform hanging from the bottom that sits just below the water surface. He likes to sleep there and climbs up onto it when I turn his light off for the night. My big RES, though, basks in the evening and often stays on her basking dock to sleep if she's up there when the light goes out.
Water Tank Buying Guide: Price, Types, Vastu Placement & Maintenance Tips
In this article, we give you all the information on selecting a water tank and how to place it, according to Vastu ShastraSafe drinking water is a basic need and continuous water supply is needed for day-to-day activities. Often, municipalities do not supply adequate water throughout the day. So, home owners prefer to invest in a water tank for their house, to get water supply at all times.A water storage tank collects water and stores it for later use and access. Residential water tanks and overhead water tanks have become important, as they are convenient for people to access the water supply 24×7. Water tanks are also used as catchment tanks for rainwater.In India, water tanks are made from plastic, concrete, metal, fiberglass, steel and other materials. Nowadays, the plastic polyethylene (poly) water tank is the most popular for water storage, as it is lightweight, non-corrosive and leak-proof. If by any chance the plastic tank does have slight damage, it can easily be secured with a sealant. The water tanks can last up to 10 years or more, depending on the material used to manufacture them.Plastic water tanks in India come in various capacities and types - underground or overhead type. Plastic water tanks are available in various sizes such as 500-litre, 1,000-litre, 5,000-litre and it can even go above 1,00,000 liters. They usually come in cylindrical, square and rectangular shapes.Some of the water tank brands in India are Sintex water tank, RC Plasto, Storewel, Aquatech, Supreme, Penguin, Vectus, Sheetal, Jindal, Sarita, Kaveri, Lotus, Easy tanks, Neropure, Selzer and others.The water tank depends on the storage capacity, layers of the plastic used, brand, state, dealer, etc.Elevated water storage tanks are fitted underground and are ideal for storing water from rainwater harvesting and municipal water. The size of the underground water tank is usually larger than the overhead tank.See also: A guide to water conservation methodsOverhead tanks are placed over the rooftop of any house or apartment. These are popular due to its cost-effectiveness and easy installation. Water storage tanks above ground can be easily checked for leakage through visual inspection and are usually easier to access if repairs are required. With overhead tanks, one can have to access the water even without electricity. Once the tank is filled, the gravitational force maintains the necessary water pressure through the water system.Placement of water tank according to VastuWater is one of the five elements mentioned in Vastu Shastra, which plays an important role and if its placement is not correct in the house, then, it can create problems for the occupants. Vastu Shastra has specific directions mentioned for placing the water tanks.The ideal direction for the overhead water tank is in the south-west or the west corner of the house. If those areas are not feasible, then, place the tank in the south or the north-west direction. Ensure that the tank placed in the north-west is of a small size.According to Vastu, the overhead water tank must never be kept in the north-east corner. Placing the tank in the south-east corner or the center is also not advisable, as it can result in financial loss and cause accidents.An overhead tank should not have any leakage towards the left. In case there is any leakage, it is considered inauspicious as it can cause financial loss.Underground water tanks can be either towards the north or east. If the position of the tank is towards the north-east direction of the plot, it results in happiness, wealth and prosperity.Underground water tanks should not be placed in the south direction, as it may causes mental stress and illness. The south-east direction of the house is for the fire element and there should be no water tank in that area. Similarly, the north-west and south-west directions are not recommended for underground water.Avoid a water tank above the kitchen or bedroom. There should be different tanks for different purposes. As per Vastu, avoid digging an underground water tank on Tuesday.For a small family, a 500 to 600-litre water storage tank is enough and for a big family (depending on the size of the family) opt for a 700 to 1,000-litre tank. One also gets small tanks that have a capacity of between 100 and 300 litres.Water storage tanks come in different shapes. Vertical water tanks are better for groundwater storage purposes, while horizontal tanks are ideal for underground storage purposes. For household purposes, a vertical tank would be ideal, as rectangular and square tanks can fit in the corners and make best use of space. For large areas, cylindrical tanks are the best.Storage tanks are available in various colours such as black, white, green beige, etc. Black and green tanks are preferred, as they prevent ultraviolet rays and the growth of harmful bacteria.Always choose the high-quality low linear density polyethylene (LLDPE) material and food-grade plastic material. These are safe to use and are durable.Plastic water storage tanks are available with many layers. These multiple layers protect the tanks from the ultraviolet rays of the sun. The extra layers include the black middle layer and food-grade layers that make it safe for drinking water usage. So, opt for triple-layer tanks.Always select a well-known brand and one that has a warranty.See also: A quick guide on using water metersTips for maintenance and cleaning of plastic water tank• Ensure that the storage water tank is properly closed, to avoid any impurities or waste from entering. Regularly check for leakage of pipes and get them repaired immediately.• The purity of the water is also impacted by where it is stored. Whether it is a home building or a housing complex, the water tank should be cleaned and disinfected at least twice a year to avoid water contamination and to maintain health and hygiene.• To clean the tank fully, drain the stored water. Try to use it for some chores, rather than just wasting it.• Scrub the tank, to remove dirt and sediments. One can either use chlorine or liquid detergents to get rid of deposits and germs. After cleaning the tank, always ensure that the tap is left running for some time, to wash away the dirty water.• If one is unable to clean the tank oneself, it is better to hire professionals who will do high-pressure cleaning, such as vacuum cleaning, anti-bacterial spray, etc. and ensure it is thoroughly clean.I need information about Cold Salt Water Tanks and fish?Cold water salt water tanks can be hard to come by. There are very few fish on the market that are cold water. The only one I could fine was a Catalina Goby. They are marketed as warm water, but the live best at room temp. If you want any other cold water salt water fish, you might have to collect your own. If you want to go for Catalina goblies, a 30 gallon tank should be find. You can go smaller, but this is not recommend for beginner. I would do research on salt water tanks first. However, I do not think you will need a protein skimmer, just a good filter and some decor. Also, live rock and sand might not work because of the cold water( on second though, live sand should. Hope this helps!!
Which Characteristic of the Light Wave Does Jessica Change by Increasing the Intensity of the Light?
Which characteristic of the light wave does Jessica change by increasing the intensity of the light?(I think you've got the story muddled.) If there is a current, it will be proportional to intensity. If you increase the intensity at any fixed frequency, you increase the number of photons but te energy of each photon remains the same.— — — — — —A light wave has a frequency. But a photon, travelling at the speed of light, does not experience the passage of time. How can it exhibit a frequency then?Time only appears non-existent to the photon. To massive particles in the universe frequency is a property of the photon which dictates how, or not, it interacts with those particles. To use Mr Reiter's example of a rock, a rock has a mass but has no awareness of that mass. You on the other hand interact with the rock and can determine its mass etc. Not a brilliant analogy I know.— — — — — —INVISIBILITY- A POSSIBILITY?Have you ever read books like "Harry Potter" and "The Invisible Man" and found yourself wishing that you could turn yourself invisible? For many years, scientists have been working to turn that dream into a reality, and it looks like they've finally come one step closer to achieving it.Before we get into the science of invisibility, let us begin by understanding how our vision works. Normally, we see objects because light hits an object, bounces back, hits our eyes and sends the image to the brain which then makes sense of the image and voila. you have a cup in front of you. The colour of the said cup depends on the colour of light that it reflects back — if it's a green cup, it will absorb all wavelengths of light except green, which it will reflect and you end up seeing a green cup. Ok, as that's out of the way, let's get to the real deal.Scientists have experimented with many methods over the years to achieve invisibility. One such method that was devised made use of a new man-made material called metamaterial. Metamaterials are made of repeating patterns of composite materials like metals and plastics at a scale smaller than the wavelength of the phenomena that they influence. The reason they are so special is that their geometry, orientation and arrangement gives them new properties that cannot be achieved in natural materials. One of the properties is manipulation of electromagnetic waves — whether it be blocking, absorbing, enhancing, or bending these waves. In this list of properties, the one which is most useful to achieve invisibility and the very reason for which these materials are used, is the ability to bend electromagnetic waves like light. So, now the question is, "Why is bending of light so important to this discussion?" Well, the answer to that can be explained by going back to the basics.In order to see an object, light has to interact with it. Therefore, we can make the simple inference that in order to make an object invisible, light should not be allowed to interact with the object, but instead be made to bend around the object so that what you see is not the object, but what is behind the object, thus making it seem invisible. This is where the concept of negative refractive index comes into place.We have all seen and heard of "refraction". It is essentially the bending of light when it travels between media of different densities. Normally, the refractive index of air is 1 and in other materials it is greater than 1. This means that when light travels from air to another material, it usually bends towards the normal drawn to the surface of the material. Now, what if there was a way to manipulate the refractive index so that it becomes negative? This can be achieved by altering the internal structure of a material on a small scale, like in negative index metamaterials or left handed metamaterials to the point where we can switch the positive refractive index to negative, thus enabling us to manipulate the direction of bending of light.In 2007, a research team at Maryland's A. James Clark School of Engineering used plasmon technology to create the world's first invisibility cloak for visible light. The invisibility cloak device was a two-dimensional pattern of concentric rings created in a thin, transparent acrylic plastic layer on a gold film and only 10 micrometers in diameter. But the cloak used a limited range of the visible spectrum, in two dimensions. It would be much harder to achieve invisibility in three dimensions since scientists would need to control light waves both magnetically and electronically to maneuver them around the hidden object. More recently, in the University of Texas, scientists have been successful in concealing an object to microwaves. It was called metascreen and was made of a 66 micrometre thick polycarbonate film that supported an arrangement of 20 micrometer thick copper strips which looked similar to a fishing net. In the experiment that was carried out , when the metascreen was hit by 3.6 GHz microwaves, it re-radiated microwaves of the same frequency that were out of phase, cancelling out reflections from the object being hidden. This could have a lot of applications in radio communications, weather tracking and in health care. The material, called Quantum Stealth, is currently still in the prototyping stage, but was developed by the company's CEO Guy Cramer primarily for military purposes, to conceal agents and equipment such as tanks and jets in the field. Unlike traditional camouflage materials, which are limited to specific conditions such as forests or deserts, according to Cramer this "invisibility cloak" works in any environment or season, at any time of the day.Check out this video on Quantum Stealth:Other than these technologies, methods like spectral cloaking and active camouflage have also been developed. In spectral cloaking, light is not made to bend around the object, instead it shifts one spectrum of light to another and then shifts it back once it reaches the other side. If for example, we take the cup we mentioned before and shift the green light to another part of the spectrum that is not reflected by the object, say blue, then no light will be reflected and the object will not be visible. The device then shifts the green light back to reverse the process once the light reaches the other side. This method eliminates any kind of distortion that could be caused by bending of light around the object and hence is more effective. The cloaking device is constructed from two pairs of two commercially available electro-optical components. The first component is a dispersive optical fiber, which forces the different colors of a broadband wave to travel at different speeds. The second is a temporal phase modulator, which modifies the optical frequency of light depending on when the wave passes through the device. One pair of these components was placed in front of the optical filter while the other pair was placed behind it. This method of spectral cloaking could be applicable to securing data transmitted over fiber optic lines and also could help improve technologies for sensing, telecommunications, and information processing .It could also be used for selectively removing and subsequently reinstating colors in the broadband waves that are used as telecommunication data signals which could allow more data to be transmitted over a given link, helping to resolve impairments due to increased demand in data. In 2003, scientists at the University of Tokyo created a prototype active camouflage system that makes use of a material impregnated with retroreflective glass beads. The viewer stands in front of the cloth viewing the cloth through a transparent glass plate. A video camera behind the cloth captures the background behind the cloth. A video projector projects this image on to the glass plate which is angled so that it acts as a partial mirror reflecting a small portion of the projected light onto the cloth. The retroreflectors in the cloth reflect the image back towards the glass plate which being only weakly reflecting allows most of the retroreflected light to pass through to be seen by the viewer. This system works only when viewed from a certain angle. In conclusion, even though an invisibility cloak that could make objects, much less humans invisible has not yet been perfected, we are on the right track. The very fact that we have come this far goes to show that with technology and a creative mindset, anything is possible.Follow us for more of amazing and latest science and technology articles.

The purpose of connecting the customer's system to ground is to limit the voltage that may develop if high voltage conductors fall down onto lower-voltage conductors which are usually mounted lower to the ground, or if a failure occurs within a distribution transformer. Earthing systems can be TT, TN-S, TN-C-S or TN-C.— — — — — —Does this writer understand that fossil fuels have saved more lives than he is claiming it kills?Problem is that electric cars pollute more then gasoline burning cars.

Fact: Electric cars, as they are produced today, are more expensive to buy and maintain and will never save the owner money over the life of the car. Fact: The electric motor has Always been the best and most efficient method of powering an automobile, but the batteries have Always been a problem. The batteries we have today are better than any time in the past, but they still are Not good enough. Until better batteries are developed, the electric car will never be an acceptable alternative. Charging time is a problem also. Fact: Hydrogen fuel cells are great and they directly convert hydrogen/oxygen to electric power and give off water vapor as a waste byproduct. They would be clean and good, except for the fact that the hydrogen source is from petroleum and until better, more efficient sources for hydrogen are develpoed, they can not be considered practical. Electric cars can be best if the problems are overcome but the science just is not there yet.— — — — — —Electric powered cars, what about electric powered RV's.?I believe the government is trying to banned the usage of electric vehicles— — — — — —What do think will be the near future best means of electric power for automobiles?In the near future I see a continuation of the same for "electric vehicles", e.g., Ni Metal Hydride (as in Toyota Prius) and lithium ion batteries that are the subject of intense research and very close to commercialization. I suspect that the market over the next 10-20 years will slowly gravitate to Plug In Hybrids for most cars or a system like GM's planned Volt system, e.g., an electric vehicle with an small on board electric generator that runs on gasoline (which to my surprise is actually VERY efficient compared to internal combustion engines with current drive trains). Everything else, e.g., fuel cells, etc., will take even more years to develop into an appropriate appropriate drive train. Although I suspect that any improved batteries or other electrical storage devices that have high energy storage to weight rations like "ultra capacitors" will be the next generation because they will simply offset batteries in the electric drive trains being developed now. BTW If you read the projections . in the near future electric vehicles and plug in hybrids or the volt system will NOT make significant inroads into the market and are expected to be less than 25% of the market for many years to come. I suspect that gas prices will level off somewhere about $5 per gallon and the US market will get used to it . plus there will also be increasing competition from ultra efficient diesel engines that Europe now uses. Its going to be a fun ride though.
