Jaguar Cars

The tagline “Born To Perform” – is quite apt for the brand Jaguar. Easily one of the top notch cars in the Auto segment the world over, Jaguar Cars proved themselves to be the best. With a wide fan following for style, performance, and delivery, the name is synonymous with success itself.

Jaguar cars are known for luxury status. The brand was established in 1922 by William Lyons and William Walmsley. They were both motorcycle enthusiasts and set up the firm to manufacture motorcycle sidecars before moving on to make passenger cars.


Back then, the company was called Swallow Sidecar Company. The name was altered to Jaguar post World War II to avoid the negative connotation of the initials SS. The first passenger car to bear the name of SS Jaguar was a 2.5-liter saloon in 1935. It’s sports models were SS 90 and SS 100.



Jaguar manufactured a series of attractive sports cars in the 1950s – Jaguar XK120 model, Jaguar XK140 model, Jaguar XK150 model, and the Jaguar E-type model. All the cars of the company followed the principle of value for money. For many years, Jaguar had the slogan – Grace, Space, and Pace.


Jaguar’s Twin OHC XK engine is renowned for its longevity and ubiquity. In 1951 and 1953, Jaguar had some of their proudest moments when they won the Le Mans 24 hour race. The company’s reputation for excellence and financial stability was built on the backs of stylishly-made luxury saloons.


Jaguar changed hands several times throughout its history due to its management problems and financial issues. In 1966, it merged with British Motor Corporation. Sir William Lyons felt that the move would catapult Jaguar into importance once again. At the end of that year, its name was changed to British Motor Holdings.

In 1968, British Motor Holdings merged with Leyland Motor Corporation Ltd. to become British Leyland but monetary success eluded the company. In 1984, Jaguar became a separate company and immediately began to prosper under the leadership of chairman, Sir John Egan.

In 1999, Jaguar joined Ford’s Premier Automotive Group, along with Volvo Cars, Land Rover, and Aston Martin. However, Jaguar did not make any profits despite launching the S-Type and the X-type range of products.


In 2008, Ford sold Jaguar to Tata Motors for £1.7 billion. The deal included Daimler, Lanchester, and Rover brands.

Currently, the car models manufactured by Jaguar are the F-Type convertible, the Jaguar XF, the Jaguar XJ, the Jaguar XK, and the Jaguar R models. In the future, we can expect to see a C-X17 and a four-door compact saloon known as XE. Ian Callum, the designer for Jaguar, had confirmed previously that there would be no Jaguar SUV.


The iconic “Leaping Jaguar” mascot has been dropped from all Jaguar models due to safety reasons. Traditionally, it was a part of the radiator cap of the car. The timeline of Jaguar illustrates how a focus on quality and performance can pull a firm through the toughest of times.


How Can You Stop Robots From Injuring Workers?

Nothing ruins your day like a robot-induced skull fracture, but there may be a way to avoid it. The Verge reports that researchers from the DLR Robotics and Mechatronics Center in Germany have been busy repurposing safety technology from cars to protect humans from wayward industrial robots. In one video from earlier this year, the team shows that a robot arm fitted with an airbag around its manipulator doesn’t cause injury when it hits someone in the face while traveling at two meters per second.

In another newly published video, though, they show how it might be used more seriously, in an assembly task where robot and human must work together. The airbag can inflate when it comes close to a human but deflate and retract when the machine needs to perform an intricate task. It’s actually remarkably neat in operation and makes quite a lot of sense. In reality, though, airbags are unlikely to be the main way to keep humans safe from robots: robust sensing and strong security to stop systems from being hijacked will probably do a better job. But they could still prove a useful addition in case robots do go rogue.

Rolls-Royce launch Sweptail worth £12.8million

Rolls Royce Sweptail is an exclusive coupe, that the luxury car manufacturer has been creating for a customer since 2013.

The customer who commissioned the exclusive car wanted the vehicle’s swept tail rear end to echo classic 1920s and 1930s Rolls’.

It was the client’s desire to have a coach built two-seater coupe with a large panoramic glass roof.

The Rolls Royce connoisseur had very exacting standards and specifications for the unique vehicle.

Rolls Royce described the car is possibly the most flamboyant description a motor vehicle has been given.

“The grandeur, scale, flamboyance, and drama of the 1925 Phantom I Round Door built by Jonckheere; the svelte tapering glasshouse, dramatic dash to axle proportion and upsweep of the rear departure angle of the 1934 Phantom II Streamline Saloon by Park Ward,Rolls-Royce-Sweptail-08

“The elegantly falling waist-rail, swept tail coachwork of the 1934 Gurney Nutting Phantom II Two Door Light Saloon, and the flowing roofline, rising departure angle, and again the swept tail coachwork of the 1934 Park Ward 20/25 Limousine Coupé were all considered by today’s Rolls-Royce designers in the creation of this very distinctive motor car.”


It took four years for Rolls-Royce to build the Sweptail, which is powered by a 6.75-litre V12 engine. The Sweptail shares its design cues with the Rolls-Royce Pantheon such as the front profile, wherein the center grille is made of brushed aluminum with mirror finish. One of the main characteristics of the luxury coupe is a large panoramic glass roof, one of the largest glass on any car and allows for more natural light, adding to the airy feel of the luxurious cabin. The Sweptail has soft creases on the sides, windscreen and the roofline that give it an aerodynamic appeal as it flows backward and tapers towards the rear mounted engine.


Bugatti Chiron is one of, if not the most expensive car on sale in the world that retails for around $3million.

This car is going to cost around $13million – which would make it the most expensive car ever sold.

“Sweptail is the automotive equivalent of Haute Couture,” comments Giles Taylor, Director of Design at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.

“It is a Rolls-Royce designed and hand-tailored to fit a specific customer.


“This customer came to the House of Rolls-Royce with an idea, shared in the creative process where we advised him on his cloth, and then we tailored that cloth to him.

“You might say we cut the cloth for the suit of clothes that he will be judged by.”

The hand-built car, which took years to create, was officially unveiled at the Concorso d’Eleganza at Villa d’Este on the banks of Lake Como.

Rolls-Royce is a complete one of a kind collector’s item and marvelous piece of engineering with a price that reflects that.

Your dream career path and how you plan to reach there

The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.

                                                                                                                              -Oprah Winfrey

Every person in the world has their own unique dream.The dream isn’t always that clean and easy, but those who achieve great things usually go through much of the same process, with many of the items listed below as part of that process. So if you have been struggling with achievement, look through the following. Begin to apply them and you will be on the road to achieving your dream.

Start Dreaming: Everything begins from in our heart and mind. Every great achievement began in the mind of one person. They dared to dream, to believe that it was possible. Take some time to allow yourself to ask “What if?” Think big. Don’t let negative thinking discourage you. You want to be a “dreamer.” Dream of the possibilities for yourself, your family and for others. If you had a dream that you let grow cold, re-ignite the dream! Fan the flames. Life is too short to let it go.

Believe In Your Own Dream: Your dream needs to be big. It needs to be something that is seemingly beyond your capabilities. But it also must be believable. You must be able to say that if certain things take place if others help if you work hard enough, though it is a big dream, it can still be done. True example: A person with no college education can dream that he will build a $50 million-a-year company. That is big but believable. Lie/Bad example: That a 90-year-old woman with arthritis will someday run a marathon in under three hours. It is big all right, but also impossible. She should instead focus on building a $50 million-a-year business! And she better gets a move on!

See Yourself In Your Dream: The great achievers have a habit. They “see” things. They picture themselves walking around their CEO office in their new $25 million corporate headquarters, even while they are sitting on a folding chair in their garage “headquarters.” Great free-throw shooters in the NBA picture the ball going through the basket. PGA golfers picture the ball going straight down the fairway. World-class speakers picture themselves speaking with energy and emotion. All of this grooms the mind to control the body to carry out the dream.

Share Your Dream With Others: One reason many dreams never go anywhere is because the dreamer keeps it all to himself. It is a quiet dream that only lives inside of his mind. The one who wants to achieve their dream must tell that dream too many people. One reason: As we continually say it, we begin to believe it more and more. If we are talking about it then it must be possible. Another reason: It holds us accountable. When we have told others, it spurs us on to actually doing it so we don’t look foolish.

Work On It: Boy, wouldn’t life be grand if we could quit before this one! Unfortunately the successful are usually the hardest workers. While the rest of the world is sitting on their sofas watching reruns of Gilligan’s Island, achievers are working on their goal achieving their dream. I have an equation that I work with: Your short-term tasks, multiplied by time, equal your long-term accomplishments. If you work on it each day, eventually you will achieve your dream. War and Peace were written, in longhand, page by page.

Enjoy Your Dream: When you have reached your goal and you are living your dream, be sure to enjoy it. In fact, enjoy the trip, too. Give yourself some rewards along the way. Give yourself a huge reward when you get there. Help others enjoy it. Be gracious and generous. Use your dream to better others.

7 D Technology

Consciousness is multi-dimensional and human beings are multi-dimensional forms of consciousness.  The seventh dimension includes the supra-causal level of unified consciousness.  It is the most subtle of our subtle dimensions.  Its frequency of vibration has a great amplitude of power and when dominant delivers the holistic experience.


Seventh Dimension Technology… or 7 D Technology… is a vibrational entrainment technology that delivers the Seventh Dimension frequency of vibration.  It reverses the relative polarized dominance from dense to subtle and enhances holistic experience… the experience of high amplitude unified witness consciousness.

From a sacred geometrical perspective… 7 D Technology is a Big Three or Primary Three energy quality.  It naturally occurs in power vortices and in precisely constructed sacred geometrical spaces like pyramids, temples and cathedrals.  It is also the natural vibration of our DNA.  It is thus a balancing, re-vitalizing, healing and holistically expansive energy quality.  Consistent exposure to 7D Technology can alter objects at the molecular level.  It yields a clear, balanced and expansive field of energy.  It is also self-regulating offering only that which can be safely assimilated.  It is particularly impressive in terms of balancing the brain and transmuting negative energy through whole-brain synchrony.

Specifically selected objects can be permanently empowered with 7 D Technology.  Some are designed to be worn such as pendants, earrings, rings, scarves and shawls… and others are designed to empower special spaces like meditation rooms or offices or entire homes.  7 D Technology can also be applied to neutralize negative dominant electro-magnetic fields in such common devices as computers, mobile phones and home/office electrical systems.     7 D Technology… precisely employed… can thus radically transform people, places and things. The possibilities are endless


Google New Product: Google Lens

Google announced several new key products and services at its I/O 2017 developer conference including a new technology it is bringing to Android smartphones, called Google Lens.

Google Lens is an AI-powered technology that uses your smartphone camera and deep machine learning to not only detect an object but understand what it detects and offer actions based on what it sees.

Everything you need to know about Google Lens.26

Google Lens is a set of vision based computing capabilities that can understand what you’re looking at and help you take action based on that information.At launch, Google Lens will be implemented into Google Assistant and Google Photos. Other Google apps will eventually follow.

Within Google Assistant, users will be able to tap the Google Lens icon, point their smartphone camera at show times outside a cinema or a gig venue’s information board, for example.Users will then be presented with a number of suggestions in the viewfinder, such as hear some songs from the artist picked up from the information board, get tickets for the event through TicketMaster or add the event to your calendar.


Within Google Photos, Google Lens will be able to identify buildings or landmarks, for example, presenting users with directions and opening hours for them. It will also be able to present information on a famous work of art. Maybe it will solve the debate of whether Mona Lisa is smiling or not.

Google Lens is a super-powered version of Google Googles and similar to Samsung’s Bixby Vision, which launched on the Galaxy S8.

It will enable users to do things such as point their smartphone camera at something, such as a specific flower, ask Google Assistant what the object you’re pointing at is and you’ll not only be told the answer but you’ll get suggestions based on the object, like nearby florists in the case of a flower.


Other examples of what Google Lens can do include users being able to take a picture of the SSID sticker on the back of a router, after which your phone will automatically connect to the Wi-Fi network without you needing to do anything else. Yep, no more crawling under the cupboard trying to read out the password whilst typing it on your phone, only to realize you forgot to put CAPS on.

Google Lens will also recognize restaurants, clubs, cafes and bars too, presenting you with a pop-up window showing reviews, address details and opening times.


Additionally, Google Lens will allow users to call a number directly from the Photos app if a friend sends you a screenshot with contact details for example.

The man who sell dreams-Shah Rukh Khan at TED

I am a movie star, I’m 51years of age and I don’t use Botox as yet. So I am clean but I do behave like you saw like a 21-years-old in my movies.

Yeah, I do that. I sell dreams and I peddle love to millions of people back home in India, who assume that I’m the best lover in the world. If you don’t tell anyone, I’m going to tell you I’m not, but I never let the assumption go away.I have also made to understand there are lots of you here who haven’t seen my work, and I feel very sad for you. That doesn’t take away from the fact that I’m completely self-obsessed as a movie star should be. That’s when my friends Chris and Juliet called me here to speak about the future”you”. Naturally, it follows I’m going to speak about the present me.


Because I truly believe that humanity is a lot like me. It’s an aging movie star, grappling with the newness around itself, wondering whether it got it right in the first place and still trying to find a way to keep on shining regardless.

I was born in a refugee colony in the capital city of India, New Delhi and my father was a freedom fighter. My mother was, well, just a fighter like mothers are. And much like the original homo sapiens,  we struggled to survive. When I was in my early 20s, I lost both my parents which I must admit seems a bit careless of me now. I do remember the night my father died, and I remember the driver of a neighbor who was driving us to the hospital.
