It transcended its natural home of the basketball court to evolve into the cultural fixture and timeless icon later.

Within a few years of introduction, it was being worn by over 75% of all NBA players, proof of its revolutionary technology. In the next few years, it was advanced from the court of the sidewalk and later into the public’s consciousness, including the collectors and fans of sneakers.

Low Quality Birds Date Low Quality Blokes

A new study examining the pecking order between female finches and the mates they chose has revealed that ‘low-quality females prefer low-quality males’, the BBC reported this week.

French scientists from the Centre of Functional and Evolutionary Ecology reached their conclusions after ranking finches according to their size and singing abilities and discovered that well matched pairs started having sex sooner.

To commemorate Grand Hyatt Hong Kong’s 20th anniversary, the hotel has prepared a series of celebration events dedicated to the local community in appreciation to their enormous support in the past two decades.

In November 1989, Hyatt International’s flagship property – Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, was officially opened. Situated along the prime waterfront of Hong Kong Island, the 549-room hotel is positioned among the finest hotels in the world, catering to both international travellers and local society by offering a distinctive style of service and range of facilities.

Hong Kong-based illustrator and graphic designer Lun Wong (aka 1KStyles) presents his first solo exhibition – ‘POP ATTACK!’ The opening reception will take place at M1NT on the 29th of October 2009 (date changed!) with complimentary cocktails from Snow Queen Vodka, canapés and a charity auction in aid of the Hong Kong Cancer Fund.

The Exhibition

The ‘Pop Attack’  exhibition is Lun’s modern urban take on the icons that have shaped popular culture. From the glamour and grace of Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn to the hard hitting images of Bruce Lee and Michael Jackson, each figure is as instantly recognisable and era-defining as the next. “They transcend the mainstream and the underground,” says Lun. “However cool you are, they set the standards and made it what it is today.”
