The drive system consists of series-produced components, which means mass production of the bus is a possibility that MAN is planning to turn into reality by 2010. |GlobalGiants.com|

United States Mint: Presidential $1 Coin Featuring Thomas Jefferson Rolls Into Circulation Tomorrow : GlobalGiants.com
Survey Reveals Most Americans Can't Name Nation's Founding Fathers.
Photo: The obverse (heads side) of the Thomas Jefferson $1 Coin was designed and sculpted by Joe Menna, a United States Mint Medallic Artist. The reverse (tails side) on all the Presidential $1 Coins is a magnificent image of the Statue of Liberty, designed and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Don Everhart.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 15 -- A survey commissioned by the United States Mint has found that most Americans don't know that Thomas Jefferson was their Nation's third President and a shockingly small number could name the first four Presidents in order. The United States Mint released the findings of the Presidential $1 Coin Survey, as the third Presidential $1 Coin featuring Jefferson heads into circulation nationwide USA tomorrow.
"That's what's great about the Presidential $1 Coin Program," said United States Mint Director Ed Moy in an event today for the new Jefferson coin at the Jefferson Memorial in Washington. "This series of circulating coins provides the perfect opportunity for Americans to learn more about our Presidents and the critical role they played in some of our Nation's historic milestones."
Only 7 percent of those surveyed could name the Nation's first four Presidents in order: George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. When asked specifically about Thomas Jefferson, only 30 percent knew that he was their Nation's third President. However, slightly more than half of Americans, 57%, knew that Thomas Jefferson was the main author of the Declaration of Independence, the Presidential $1 Coin Survey revealed.
The United States Mint celebrated the new Thomas Jefferson $1 Coin by allowing visitors to the Jefferson Memorial to exchange dollar bills for the new coins one day ahead of their official release. |GlobalGiants.com|

KILLERLOOP FALL/WINTER 2007/2008 COLLECTION : GlobalGiants.com
The label KILLERLOOP designed for skate freaks now goes further and attracts those young people not necessarily keen on flying pirouettes and other stunts. The Killerloop of next autumn and winter speaks a more universal although predominantly young idiom.
KILLERLOOP Urban Fusion works with the matte and shiny palette of urban grey: asphalt, smog, underground dimness, the metal of railings and tin cans. For the boys there are the varyingly padded blousons with faux fur edges, contrast linings, ribbing and quilting, comfortable (but not too comfortable) trousers in denim and woven fabric and sweaters in wool and jersey with houndstooth check prints and lattice embroidery, and a well-proportioned and effective edging of screw studs, rings and reflector details. The girls are up to the challenge, adding flashy linings, small Prince of Wales checks with gusset pockets and decorative zips, glittered and laminated tattoo prints and shaped jackets with a waist belt. |GlobalGiants.com|
