After the race at Losail, Pedrosa complained of pain to make konstrasinya split during the race. Nevertheless, the classic problem does not interfere with performance. In fact, Pedrosa managed to seize podium to three in the series opener.

Now, looking at the second series in Jerez, Pedrosa expressed his motivation doubled since his injury problems gradually improved high interest plus supporters who packed the stands at Jerez later. "I am very motivated right now. In every race this season, we always work a hundred percent. But when the race in their own homes (in Spain), we have to work a little harder.

Elvis Scrapbooks -- Part 2


Last week we started a discussion on Elvis Scrapbooks and took a look at the first six pages of one I recently borrowed.  50s teenagers enjoyed compiling Elvis items in organized scrapbooks.  It should come as no surprise to you that Col. Parker saw the fad for Elvis scrapbooks and marketed a few to meet this demand.  Of course, there was no shortage of newspaper and magazine articles to cut out and past in the books.  Here are three scrapbooks that went on sale early in Elvis? career.

                        

 

                    

Zippered 3-Ring Elvis Scrapbook


 

The Elvis scrapbook we looked at last week was totally a home-made endeavor.  Here are the next four pages with a few comments.

 


Page 7 gets into older Elvis ? a shot from the ?68 Comeback Special, a color Jumpsuit shot (probably from a magazine) and two black-and-white jumpsuit newspaper photos  Finally, there is the second Priscilla picture.  It is another look at Priscilla around the time she parted with Elvis.  Although it?s not full page like the first one, it does have a nice caption: ?Friends say he never got over their divorce ? and never stopped loving her.?

 


Page 8 is a real hodge-podge of pictures.  We get a shot of Elvis on the set of Flaming Star with an unidentified woman, probably a fan.  Then, yet another picture of Elvis and Natalie Wood.  The caption reports that Wood said Elvis had almost mystical beliefs.  At the bottom of the page, Elvis hangs out with film crew on location.  Too bad they didn?t say what movie it was.  Next, we get our second look at Lisa Marie, perhaps a little older than in the earlier photo.  Finally, we get the scrapbook?s third shot of Priscilla, and she looks young in all of them.  Priscilla was twenty-eight when she and Elvis divorced, and it would seem all these photographs were taken shortly after that.

 

 

Page 9 is a strange one.  The three newspaper photos are nothing unusual.  You can see the date 9/12/77 written on the picture of Elvis performing, so it appeared in the weeks after his death.  The photo on the right side seems to be from Viva Las Vegas.  And the bottom one says, ?Elvis leaves a concert in a flurry of action and tension.?

The newspaper article is sort of interesting.  It quotes Richard Fulcher of the Brentwood Historical Society in Tennessee, who traced Elvis lineage through eleven generations..  He states that Elvis father, grandfather, and great-grandfather all struggled as sharecroppers in the Mississippi bottom land.  It was during Reconstruction after the Civil War that the fortunes of Elvis great-great-grandfather turned for the worse and he moved his family to Mississippi.

According to Mr Fulcher, things were much better for the earlier generations of Presleys, who lived in Tennessee.


 

Page 10:  This does not look like a casual photo snapped at random.  I know it was done during a professional session, because I have another pose in the same outfit. 

 

 

In these shots, Priscilla is twenty-eight or so, and she has an appearance that is different from both the early black hair and heavy makeup period and the mature period when she appeared on Dallas on TV and the Naked Gun movies.  I?ll go out on a limb and say her peak of beauty was at the time of these photos.

More Elvis Scrapbook stories to come.

Dani Pedrosa Will Undergo Surgery after Jerez


It’s a tough day for Spanish MotoGP fans as Dani Pedrosa has confirmed that he will be going back in for surgery on his shoulder after the Spanish GP at Jerez. Pedrosa’s injuries were diagnosed today as stemming from an intermittent compression of the subclavian artery, which in-turn was causing his lack of strength and numbness in his left arm. After this weekend’s race, Pedrosa will go in for his surgery where the titanium plate ...

Elvis Presley, Fashion King -- The Dark Side


On March 1, 2010, EPE introduced a new exhibit at Graceland called Elvis Presley: Fashion King.  According to the press release at the time, it explores the fashion trends ushered in by the King of Rock & Roll.

 

 


 
Three months later, Graceland announced that they were making five photos from Elvis Presley: Fashion King available for free download to the Elvis Mobile App on your iPhone or iPad.  It was nice of them to make it easy for us to check out the fashion trends Elvis ushered in.

 

This sounds like a great exhibit to me, and Elvis certainly wore some spectacular clothes.  But, did he truly start fashion trends with them?  I?m not so sure.  But, I am sure that there were a few times he wore certain outfits that never inspired anything ? except maybe a cringe.  Here are some that I found:


Pink Everything:

 

In this photo Elvis was getting a ticket in downtown Memphis in 1955.  We see Elvis wearing a pink shirt (he wore many of those), a pink belt (a little strange), and pink socks.  I think we can safely say Elvis never started a pink sock craze among high school boys.  That would have been like asking to get beat up..


The Pirate Look:

 

Here?s another one that never caught on.  What is that over Elvis? shoulders?

 

 

The Gay Look?:

           

 

We all know Elvis was totally heterosexual, but, if this outfit ushered in a fashion trend, it had to be in the gay community.  Fortunately, the second photo shows Elvis with his arm around a pretty girl. 

 

The Pink Suit:

 

Elvis was really big on pink back in 1955.  Here is a photo of him at the Louisiana Hayride wearing a pink suit.  I?ll bet Bill and Scotty just loved wearing their pink vests.

 

The Overstuffed Look:

 

Elvis must have bought this when he was younger and slimmer.  I?m guessing the Graceland fashion exhibit doesn?t contain much wardrobe from this period in Elvis? life.


The Policeman Look:

 

We know Elvis had a collection of law enforcement badges, but did he also collect the hats, too?  The hat and badge go so nicely with huge white collar.

 

Elvis Grimley?:

 

I used this photo before, comparing it to Martin Short?s character Ed Grimley, but it belongs here as well.  Looks like the pants from a Zoot Suit.  Maybe Elvis helped to usher out that fashion trend.


Just Plain Ugly:

Even a legend and fashion icon can make a mistake, and this outfit definitely is one.  It looks like something Moammar Gadhafi would wear, doesn?t it?


Man from Outer Space:

                  

Maybe Elvis did start a fashion trend with this.  Remember the outfits worn by rock band Devo?  I had to look at the red image behind Elvis for a while before I figured out it was Charlie Hodge holding a scarf, ready to hand it to Elvis

 

In fairness to Elvis, let?s end with one of those phone app pictures.  When he looked like this, Elvis really was a Fashion King.

Superbike racing is all about showcasing the latest generation of high-performance four-stroke street bikes, with seven manufacturers set to battle it out for the 2011 world championship – Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha, Suzuki, Ducati, BMW and Aprilia.
Much more than prototype-based grand prix racing, superbikes have a greater connection to the general public, because people can see the bikes they own being punted around on some of the finest race tracks in the world, including Australia’s very own Phillip Island.

The spectacular Phillip Island has one of the highest average speeds of any circuit in the world, and in the 2010 round Italian Max Biaggi (the eventual world champion) reached 319.8km/h down the main straight on his Aprilia V-four. That’s seriously potent performance.

"I like the Donington track, I've not been lucky there in the past but that's been a consequence of the races, nothing to do with the track itself," declared Checa.

The championship regulations allow four-cylinder bikes of up to 1000cc, or twins up to 1200cc. At the moment, Ducati is the only marque which is using a twin-cylinder configuration.
In 2011, the minimum weight for both twin-cylinder and four-cylinder bikes will be 165kg.
A superbike must remain in many aspects the same as the bike that can be bought in any dealership, including the body design. To be allowed to enter the world superbike title every manufacturer must produce a minimum quantity of a bike that must also be commercially available to the general public.

The championship also has a control slick race tyre, produced by Pirelli, giving all teams access to the same specification rubber to create closer and more exciting racing than ever before.

In a meantime, we can be certain this place will be packaged any competition weekend. Margherita pizza, anyone? Check out a central press recover after a jump.

The priest, a mayor, a Priors of a Feast of St. Pio, Berta a news agent, Silverio a barber, and a whole race of Tavullia entice we to a opening of Valentino Rossi Fan Club?s new offices.

Located in a heart of Tavullia, a renovated Fan Club is a assembly place for members, though it also opens a doors to all fans to come eat a pizza in a new ?Bar Pizzeria da Rossi?, to have breakfast in a morning, to suffer a drink, to relax in a gentle video-game room or to follow all a Grand Prix rounds or other sporting events in a gentle TV room.
