2012 Ferrari 458 Italia Spider



Leaked photos always have a way of forcing automakers to scramble on how to proceed when launching a new vehicle and the leaked images of the Ferrari 458 Italia Spider just might have forced Ferrari to show its hand earlier than they wanted. Now, all this is a matter of speculation and it just might be coincidence altogether, but in any case, the Italian automaker not only released the first official teaser of the 458 Italia Spider, but followed that up with the the first batch of official photos featuring the much-talked about top-down supercar.

Have you been trying to escape to a tropical island? Things are getting in the way? University, work, family, finance... Well what if I told you someone can sail their own island where ever they want.
That's the concept behind the "Tropical Island Paradise" superyacht, whose designers say it was "inspired by the islands of the Caribbean, Indian Ocean and Polynesia."

2011 Maserati GranTurismo S Superior Black Edition

 

Anderson Germany seems to have a thing for turning already superior sports cars into lean and mean beasts of the road with exquisite black exterior paint finishes and upgraded power outputs. Their most recent transformations have come for the Porsche Panamera and the Aston Martin DBS, but they are now revealing the GranTurismo S Superior Black Edition. Just like the previously spectacular tuning packages, the GranTurismo S Superior Black takes the standard model and adds the aggressiveness it needs with a matte black exterior finish and other upgraded features, as well as extra thump for the engine.

Dexter season 6 coming this fall

Based on Jeff Lindsay's novels Darkly Dreaming Dexter and Dearly Devoted Dexter this crime thriller follows Dexter Morgan, from my point of view this is one of the best TV shows every made. Dexter is a forensic blood spatter expert for the Miami Dade Police Department. He is the main support for his sister. He has a steady girlfriend, with two kids who adore him. He also has an active "night life". Based on a code instilled in him by his foster father, Harry, he hunts down people who have escaped justice and makes sure they don't get away with a crime again.
That said, whoever didn't watch this show should get on it immediately, you have 5 seasons to catch up before season 6, the final one begins airing this fall (Sunday October 2nd). This is as little video to give you a little feel of the show. Make sure you watch the rest of the videos, I included season 6 trailer...

What is Lebron doing this summer? Learning from the best...



Since the beginning of summer, right after Miami lost the Finals, all we heard about Lebron James revolved around charity events, basketball camps for the best high schools and colleges. He played in a few different basketball games here and there and filmed a commercial in Los Angeles. He visited Nike headquarters in Oregon. He even attended a bachelor party in Las Vegas for his teammate Chris Paul. Lebron James is back home in Ohio, hosting his charity bicycle annual event but most importantly Lebron James did a rather unusual thing this summer. He had his plane take a little detour and go to Houston. He decided that after loosing to the Dallas Mavericks he wanted to improve one of the aspects of his game (the only aspect he still needs to be perfect), his post up game. To do that he went to see the great Hakeem Olajuwon.

When all you want is BED and BREAKFAST


So you had a crazy night last night and woke up with the worst hangover. Ap
art from that nauseous feeling that runs throughout your body as soon as you wake up till later on during the day (some people longer than others), your body is starving for anything that will make it feel better. Guess what. Heavy, greasy breakfasts
do the trick! A perfect 'morning after' meal will be your ticket out of remorse for whatever happened the night before, and will get that C.O.D. gun-shooting effect out of your head.


1. As soon as you wake up, and stumble out of bed, go get a glass of cold water. BUT MAKE SURE you sip it slowly. While you're asleep, your body's dehydration sneaks its way in and the first thing you'll want to do is down an entire bottle as soon as you open your eyes. But try to sip slowly because if you drink it all too fast, that feeling of sudden hydration will make you feel nauseous and unbalanced.

2. When you wake up hungover, head pounding and room spinning, you're first instinct probably won't be to head to the kitchen but to the washroom to finish up some business. My advice to you: TAKE YOUR TIME. Then take a shower afterwards.

3. After your shower, put on some moisturizing body lotion all over, that dryness is due to the dehydration from the alcohol. Plus, it feels so good when you finally hydrate your body inside and out.

Now for the breakfast part:

Here are some quick, easy dishes that make you feel so much better. Remember to drink water before you drink anything else. Also, a nice cup of coffee later on in the day feels great, but get your body hydrated first!

Here's a good list of breakfast wonders. You'll thank me.

1. Potato-Tomato pancakes with Sunny Side-Ups and Grilled Tomato slices.
Serves 3
Ingredients: Pancakes: 3 small-medium potatoes, 1 onion, 1 tomato, olive oil, salt, pepper, cumin, nutmeg, 1 cup flour, 1/4 cup milk, 2 eggs, breadcrumbs.

DON'T BE LAZY! DO NOT USE A MACHINE TO BLEND THESE INGREDIENTS!

First, grate (peeled/unpeeled: it's up to you!) potatoes and peeled onion into a big bowl. Chop tomato into small cubes. After 5 minutes of grating, you'll notice the puddle of potato/onion/tomato juice at the bottom of the bowl. It is important to drain the mixture. Then, crack in the eggs and make sure all is blended togethe
r and that the eggs are coating the potatoes/onion mixture. After that, add in about 2 tbsp olive oil and mix quickly. In another bowl, mix together the flour, milk and the spices (about 1 tsp. of cumin and nutmeg, and salt and pepper according to taste). Pour flour/milk/spices into potato/onion/tomato mixture and stir.

SPICE ADVICE! Do not add spices including salt and pepper until the end, as these will damage the eggs.

COOKING: Heat a large skillet on med-high heat. It is imp
ortant to let the pan heat first, and then add a little bit of cooking oil. (Olive oil works but make sure you don't cook the pancakes on high as olive oil has a low smoke-point). Take a spoonful of the pancake mixture, and place on skillet; pat down gently with back of spoon. Do not flatten entirely, as it will happen throughout the cooking/flipping process. The skillet should fit 3-4 pancakes. Cook each side of the pancakes for about 3-5 minutes each.

OPTION: Sprinkle one side of the pancake with breadcrumbs before you flip it to have a crusty, crumby crunch!

FOR THE GRILLED TOMATOES AND SUNNY SIDE-UPS:
You'll need 1 tomato, cut into thick slices
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil on pan at med-high heat (around 7 or 8). When the olive oil begins to smoke just a little bit (wait 2 minutes max!) turn down the heat to around 6, and place each tomato slice on the pan, allow to cook for 3 minutes and then turn over for 30 seconds. Place nicely on your beautiful plate.
You'll need 2 eggs.
Heat the skillet to medium-high. Coat the pan with about a tablespoon of olive oil, and when the pan is hot, add a tbsp of butter and let it sizzle for a sec.

HERE'S A TIP! Splash some water on the pan with your fingers, and if it sizzles and evaporates, then the pan is ready!

As soon as the sizzling starts, it's time to crack in 2 eggs. You can do them side by side, or individually, depending on the size of the pan (smaller pan=side by side). Turn down the heat to medium, and let the eggs cook until the white around the yolk has set and doesn't jiggle when you jiggle the pan. Depending on how you like your eggs, runny or not, you can adjust how long the eggs should cook; however I believe the right timing is around 4-5 minutes. For easy 'lifting', use a silicon spatula to slide between the egg and the pan lifting it off the surface, use the silicon spatula as a lever if you need it, and use an ordinary spatula to take the eggs out and serve on a plate.
