How the Louis Louis Vuitton Handbags Vuitton Cup changed the sport
Last year, about 300 out of 61,416 Buddhist monks and novices in Thailand were reprimanded – in several cases removed from the monkhood – because of their misconduct, ranging from alcohol consumption, having sex with women, to extortion. The office also received complaints about monks driving cars, and scams and false claims of black magic uses by monks. Mr Nopparat has said the monks in the video were acting ‘inappropriately, not composed and not adhering to Buddha’s teachings of simplicity and self-restraint’. Monruedee Bantoengsuk, an administrative officer at Khantitham Temple in Sisaket province, confirmed that the monks on the private plane lived at the temple but refused to give details about the trip. The images from the video contrasted with the abbot’s message on the temple’s homepage that read: ‘The true core of those who preach Buddha’s teachings is to not to own any objects at all’. Mr Nopparat said: ‘When Lord Buddha was alive, there wasn’t anything like this. There were no cars, smart phones or cameras, so the rules were much simpler.
Fashion Dissection: Who Rocked It Best At “Louis Vuitton” Opening Event
“It occurred to me that instead of spending money on the selection process, we should find a partner. That’s how it all started.” Trouble turned to the French-based, internationally acclaimed luxury goods company Louis Vuitton , founded in 1854, just three years after the start of the America’s Cup in 1851. “I had a meeting with the skippers (of the challenging teams), and I called Henry Racamier , the chairman of Louis Vuitton,” Trouble said. “It took a phone call and he said, ‘OK, I’m in.’ ” The first Louis Vuitton Cup, to determine which of the challengers will face the defender of the America’s Cup, was held in 1983. That first race marked a turning point in the history of the America’s Cup, as an Australian team skippered by John Bertrand wrested the Cup from the New York Yacht Club and ended America’s 132-year winning streak. This year represents the 30th anniversary – and eighth regatta – of the Louis Vuitton series.
Wearable art wows American yachting crowd
Putting on exhibition challenges students Home away from home Six World of WearableArt garments have opened a Louis Vuitton event in San Francisco linked to the America’s Cup, at the personal invitation of the famous fashion house. The garments were shown at the weekend in a private performance for 700 invitation-only guests, including Louis Vuitton personnel from around the world and international media, from magazines and newspapers such as Vogue, Tatler, Elle, GQ and The Daily Telegraph. Louis Vuitton contacted WOW earlier this year, requesting a number of its garments be sent to San Francisco for the special performance, with each garment being “matched” to the four yachting teams competing for the America’s Cup. The founder of the World of WearableArt Awards, Dame Suzie Moncrieff, was delighted by the invitation, seeing it as an accolade to the calibre of the designs and artworks designers are producing from New Zealand and around the world. “We performed a private 30-minute show for Louis Vuitton on an island in Auckland’s [Hauraki] Gulf in 2003, with about 100 different garments being modelled,” she said. “For them to have been so moved and inspired and to invite us to do this show in San Francisco is fabulous recognition for our designers and for everything that is WOW.” The international projects manager for WOW, Ali Boswijk, travelled to San Francisco with WOW management and models to bring the garments to life on stage.
Louis Vuitton Cup : Emirates Team New Zealand scores first point
Skipper Dean Barker and the Kiwi team, the reigning Louis Vuitton Cup champions from 2007, took Aotearoa onto the racecourse doing 30 knots and riding on the hydrofoils. They recorded a top speed of 42.8 knots (49 mph)meaning the AC72 was sailing its 72-foot length in a single secondand the crew averaged 20.7 knots around the 16.05-nautical-mile course. Even the 90-foot waterline multihulls that featured in the 2010 Americas Cup didnt record such a top speed in racing. We actually enjoy it when its windier, then you really start ripping downwind and can pull off some slick jibes, said Barker. You never finish a race in one of these boats and think its all gone perfect. We made a couple of mistakes today, but it was good to get out and go through the paces. Emirates Team New Zealand sailed the seven-leg course unopposed due to Luna Rossa Challenges decision to boycott the race because it is awaiting a protest hearing with the International Jury. We are waiting for the International Jury to decide the protest and then well make a plan, said Max Sirena, skipper of Luna Rossa Challenge. Were here to race; weve spent lots of energy and money to do that. Its our dream and goal to be out there racing. The Kiwis are awaiting the same hearing that is scheduled for tomorrow, but chose to complete the racecourse because 1 point was available to the winner of the race and they wanted to send a show of thanks to their supporters. Were a commercially funded team, said Barker.
