Dubai Car show 2010

Two months before it opens, the Abu Dhabi International Motor Show (ADIMS) has become the largest and most comprehensive motor show in the Middle East this year. Already, 80 per cent of floor space has been sold to exhibitors, with big names such as Ferrari, Toyota and General Motors already confirmed.

Taking place from December 7-11 at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, ADIMS will be held under the patronage of His Highness Lt. Gen. Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister & Minister of Interior UAE. Its scope involves showing off some of the world’s most amazing vehicles mixed with a range of live activities and mouthwatering competitions.

The thirteenth edition of ADIMS has been designed to offer an interactive show for the whole family that also features a number of major product launches as well as a range of exciting new developments. The last Abu Dhabi show, held in 2008, attracted a record 50,000 visitors, while organisers expect a significant increase in spectator numbers this year round.

ADIMS has a strong pedigree of consistent success, which is why global manufacturers see it as a launchpad for giving debuts to their vehicles. Out of around 400 models from over 30 global vehicle manufacturers, there were as many as 19 regional launch premiers at the 2008 show. These included the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 Spyder, Cadillac’s CTS-V and Escalade, and the Toyota Sequoia.

“The beauty of this show is that it attracts the eyes of the region and the world,” said Peter McConnell, Director of the Abu Dhabi International Motor Show 2010. “With so much attention given to the big names, the numerous automotive-related accessories and services that appear at the show also benefit from being in such close proximity. This is truly a show for all exhibitors, and it shows. While the 2008 event was the biggest so far, this year will see it as the biggest in the region. All exhibitors see ADIMS as a show that works for them and returns on their investment.”

McConnell explained that, like 2008, this year’s ADIMS would not be lacking in launches and announcements. “With a raft of new developments to be announced over the coming weeks, and some of the world’s biggest automotive brands already confirmed, ADIMS will definitely live up to its slogan – Ready for the Thrill…! There has never been a better time to check out the latest developments in the Middle East automotive industry.”

The ADIMS 2010 will take place against a backdrop of strong recovery in the Middle East automotive market, with the UAE capital playing a leading role. Premium brands across the region have reported growth of over 10 per cent during 2010, while volume brands are also experiencing a return to form. Over recent years, the Middle East has increasingly made its presence felt on the global car market, with tie-ups between Kuwait and Aston Martin, Bahrain and McLaren, and Abu Dhabi and Mercedes-Benz and Ferrari.

Reinforcing the confidence of the industry, both in relation to the market and ADIMS itself, Al Hilal Bank has once again been confirmed as the show’s Exclusive Bank Platinum Sponsor, with an emphasis placed on its on-site car financing offerings. Mohamed Zaquot, Head of Personal Banking, said: “Al Hilal bank is pleased to sponsor the ADIMS for the second consecutive time. Our participation this year will build on the success of Al Hilal’s ‘Walk-in, drive out’ innovative initiative, which we launched to facilitate owning your dream car. Customers will be able to select their favourite cars available at the show, obtain necessary auto finance, insure and register the car, then drive home their newly owned vehicle within one hour”.

Amazing 3D Street art

3d Street Painting by Master Madonnaro Manfred Stader. Wonderful illusions done in chalk or other media. Amazing 3-d street art for your project.

Street painting has been recorded throughout Europe since the 16th century. Street Painters, (also called chalk artists) a name these performance artists are most commonly called in the USA are historically called I Madonnari in Italy (singular form: madonnaro or madonnara) because they recreated images of the Madonna. In England they are called Screevers and in Germany Strassenmaler 

 The Italian I Madonnari were itinerant artists, many of whom had been brought into the cities to work on the huge cathedrals. When the work was done, they needed to find another way to make a living, and thus would often recreate the paintings from the church onto the pavement. Aware of festival and holy days in each province and town, they traveled to join in the festivities to make a living from observers who would throw coins if they approved of the artist's work.

Blenheim Palace is a monumental country house situated in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, England, residence of the dukes of Marlborough. It is the only non-royal non-episcopal country house in England to hold the title of palace. The palace, one of England's largest houses, was built between 1705 and circa 1724. UNESCO recognised the palace as a World Heritage Site in 1987.

Its construction was originally intended to be a gift to John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough from a grateful nation in return for military triumph against the French and Bavarians at the Battle of Blenheim. However, it soon became the subject of political infighting, which led to Marlborough's exile, the fall from power of his duchess, and irreparable damage to the reputation of the architect Sir John Vanbrugh.

Designed in the rare, and short-lived, English Baroque style, architectural appreciation of the palace is as divided today as it was in the 1720s.[2] It is unique in its combined usage as a family home, mausoleum and national monument. The palace is also notable as the birthplace and ancestral home of Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill.

The building of the palace was a minefield of political intrigue by Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough. Following the palace's completion, it became the home of the Churchill family for the following 300 years, and various members of the family have in that period brought various changes, in the interiors, park and gardens. At the end of the 19th century, the palace and the Churchills were saved from ruin by an American marriage. Thus, the exterior of the palace remains in good repair and exactly as completed.
