Jessica Alba, Diane Kruger look stunning at Vogue Paris Dinner

Jessica Alba and Diane Kruger were at the Hotel de la Rochefoucauld Doudeauville on Tuesday night for a Vogue Paris Dinner. The Paris Fashion week wouldn't be the same without a couple of gorgeous women showing off the perfect style. Did we say style? We meant to say absolute fashion style.

The event was hosted by Carine Roitfeld in honor of Frida Giannini as part of Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week and it might have been a Vogue Paris Dinner but everyone who sees the photos will definitely be more interested in the fine fashion the two celebrities are wearing instead of what is on the menu.

The look of Jessica Alba is not only striking, it is classic Hollywood all the way. Not too much glitter but definitely perfect. Diane Kruger also looked drop dead gorgeous. The ladies both showed off the dressed, but if you look close the muscle tone defines their bodies.

Take a look at the photo slide show of the Vogue Paris Dinner.


Speed camera fix ordered

THE accuracy of every speed camera in Victoria is to be urgently examined.

speed And warning signs may be used to alert motorists before they reach them, under the biggest review of the state's traffic camera network.

The Herald Sun can reveal Police Minister Peter Ryan has kick-started a "rigorous and far-reaching" audit of the entire system, which has lost public confidence amid concerns the cameras are just revenue raisers.

Mr Ryan is today also honouring a last-minute election promise by allowing the Herald Sun to reveal the location of previously secret mobile speed camera sites.

He will provide the Herald Sun each week with a list of where mobile speed cameras will be placed during the following seven days.

Mr Ryan said providing the list was part of his plan to make Victoria's speed and red light camera network more transparent.

He said measures being considered included making fixed and mobile speed cameras more visible by painting them in bright colours.

"Victorians should have complete knowledge of all aspects of the traffic camera system and confidence in its integrity," Mr Ryan said.

"I believe that public scepticism about cameras has arisen largely from a lack of knowledge about the intricacies of the system, the apparent secrecy surrounding its structure and operations, and a lack of confidence in the capacity to accurately record speed.

"This Government is intent on fixing this problem."

Mr Ryan has asked the Auditor-General to examine what should be done about tolerance levels, which give motorists a certain amount of leeway before cameras are triggered and fines issued.

He hopes his speed camera shake-up will convince motorists the new Government's priority is to use Victoria's 435 fixed and mobile traffic cameras in whatever way is most effective to save lives.

Victoria's Secret Model Edita Vilkeviciute Topless Candid Beach Pictures are Hot


Here we have a teenage model doing some topless sunbathing and playing with her nipples. Edita Vilkeviciute, is a 19 year old Victoria's Secret model, was caught topless at the Miami Beach several days ago. Thankfully, a pervy paparazzo was there with a long lens camera to get these candids. The look on her face as she rub sunblock on her topless tits is absolutely priceless, you can tell she is really enjoying herself. At first I thought she was completely naked, but if you look closely, you´ll see she actually wears a transparent g-string. Normally Edita Vilkeviciute parades round in Victoria’s Secret Lingerie but this time she opted for the see-thru thong bikini.


The Lithuanian-born model was in Miami, Florida to do the recent Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and she looks absolutely gorgeous, and you know what they say, if you got it, flaunt it! And thats why I think all Victoria's Secret models should be required by Federal Law to be topless in public at all times.

Burton denied that she takes part in X-rated online movies, and later suggested that the clips consist of private footage taken from a stolen laptop.

"I know nothing about this site," the 37-year-old added. "I have nothing to do with this."

2010 Vogue magazine adriana lima

Adriana Lima is not technically Spanish. Well, she's not at all Spanish, on account of her being from Brazil. But the Victoria's Secret model does an excellent impression of someone both Spanish and almost illegally hot in Spanish Vogue. So well done to her.

She is, in the tradition of magazine shoots of buxom mediterranean-looking women, dressed up to look like Sofia Loren in her heyday, with bosoms wherever you look. Some might decry this as hackneyed, we prefer to think of it as classic.


Jennifer Lopez has launched a legal battle to prevent the release of sex videos taped

Get your low down on what's happening in the world of Hollywood, right here!

Jennifer Lopez has launched a legal battle to prevent the release of sex videos taped by ex-husband showing her ''flashing''.


The singer has taken Ojai Noa and his agent Ed Meyer to court to stop their reported attempt to sell and market videos made during the couple's 11-month marriage in 1997.


In the videos, she is seen flashing her private parts and displaying other ''deviant behaviour'', according to documents filed in the singer's legal fight to keep the tapes secret.


'This is among other nudity on her part in the now 21 hours of home movies that we have so far recovered,' the Daily Mail quoted Meyer as saying in the papers.


Ojani is continually finding more and more home videos with Lopez that he didn''t remember he had, Meyer added.


Although the tapes do not contain full sex scenes they could be of great embarrassment to the star who is married to Mark Anthony and has two-year-old twins Max and Emme.


'However, Noa & Meyer have never ever intended to market this and the many other racy, damaging & expositive scenes from the Home Videos,' the court filing said.


'It must also be stated that in Noa''s Home Videos, Lopez gives her full consent to Noa taping her,' the documents added.


But Lopez is not agreeing to these tapes being made public saying they are private and personal, claiming that Noa and filmmaker Meyer are violating an injunction which blocks the release of the videos.

IBM announces new chip

The technology, called "nanophotonics," enables electrical and optical devices to be built on the same piece of silicon.

It uses light pulses to make smaller, faster and more power-efficient chips that eventually will be used in supercomputers that run at "exascale" speed, that is, a million trillion calculations per second.

The technology was announced Wednesday at the Semicon conference in Tokyo and attributed to the work of researchers at the Yorktown labs and at Zurich, Switzerland.

A key advantage of the breakthrough is that it will dramatically increase the speed of communication between various chips inside computers and other devices, IBM said.

The development "promises unprecedented increases in silicon-chip function and performance via ubiquitous low-power optical communications between racks, modules, chips or even within a single chip itself," said Yurii A. Vlasov, Yorktown-based manager of the Silicon Nanophotonics Department at IBM, according to a company statement.

Spokesman Chris Andrews said the technology is about three to five years away from production of workable integrated products.

"We're preparing to move the technology into manufacturing," he said. It's too early to say where the chips themselves will be made, he added.

"We also are pursuing development of Exascale systems that will use this new nanophotonics technology by the end of the decade, possibly around 2018. An Exascale supercomputer will be approximately one thousand times faster than the fastest machine today," Andrews said.

HP Making Moves to Improve and Support Affiliate Businesses

HP wants to resolve client problems quickly, proactively and without any kind of disturbances. The company has been planning to do so, through the launch of a support program that will help them hone the growth of affiliate business support providers.

HP’s new platform for support groups is expected to be ready within the next 12 – 18 months. That’s a lot of time; primarily it means that businesses will have to wait for over a year, to see any light at the end of the tunnel. However, once ready, the service is expected to include support portals and 24/7 remote monitoring that will be based on automated diagnostics and notifications for HP and its multivendor products.

HP’s CEO Ray Wang said, “HP will limit access to the company’s intellectual property over the next 12 to 18 months to warranty and support agreement customers, while aligning HP’s intellectual property protection practices with industry norms.”

During this time period, HP will review all the old and current IP practices in order to ensure that the warranty and support agreement customers of HP and its partners will receive an even flow of services and a unique experience.

Wang said that HP is thinking of narrowing down on support practices primarily. “In the past, they were much freer with the sharing of support IP. The Oracle suit shows them how they will need to protect themselves from potential third-party support and legal liability. Proactively, this will help them drive long-term support and services revenues, which often make up the most profitable parts of the business.”

Women's rights after amendment to the Hindu Succession

Question: The Hindu Succession (Amendment) Act, 2005, which has come into effect from 9.9.2005, grants a daughter in joint Hindu family the same right as her brother as a coparcener. It means that she is entitled to a separate assessment in respect of assets received on partition of the joint family with herself as karta or manager as distinct from her individual assessment.


It, therefore, means that she can be a member of her husband's joint family while having her own family out of property got from her parental joint family, while retaining her individual status. This view of mine does not have ready concurrence from my lawyer friends. What is the correct position of law?

Answer: The above letter from K. G. Krishnamurthy, Mayiladuthurai, a Chartered Accountant and a Member of State Consumer Advisory Council, would take the amendment in 2005 to its logical conclusion.

But every amendment need not be carried beyond the purpose for which the amendment is made. The purpose is to give a woman a right in the property of joint family in which she was born. Her right, therefore, is equal to that of a coparcener, but it does not mean that she could be a coparcener for all purposes. On partition, she ceases to be a member of her parental family. In her hands, it will be her individual property. Her husband or children have not been conferred any right in the property derived by her from her parental joint family. Hindu law has not undergone a total change as inferred by the reader. The amendment, no doubt, puts a Hindu woman in a better position than her brother, who is bound to treat his share received on partition with all the incidence of the property of the joint family of which he is the karta with rights of other family members in such property.
