Painting - a medium once used by truck drivers to express themselves by painting their trucks now called 'Truck Art' and inspires many around the world. Some years ago this art was known only by locals but now it has many fans world-wide. To explore and to rediscover this art an exhibition titled "Tribal Truck Art" was held at Alliance Francaise Karachi.

Vincent van Gogh's "Sunflowers" are losing their yellow cheer and the unsettling apricot horizon in Edvard Munch's "The Scream" is turning a dull ivory. Some of our most treasured paintings are fading, warn experts who would like more money for the use of sophisticated technology to capture the masters' original palettes before the works are unrecognisably blighted.
With interior design, it's sometimes essential to focus attention away from the big picture and onto one specific object. "People are getting more home-oriented and playful," says designer Oliver Schick. "That's why smaller things are getting more important again." Along with decorative accessories, lights and textiles, the list of essential small objects includes the humble side table.
Though they may appear ungainly, bumblebees would be capable of flying at altitudes exceeding that of the top of Mt Everest, a study by two US scientists has shown. To compensate for the low barometric pressure at high elevations - and hence low aerodynamic lift - the bees greatly increase the angular extent of wing motion while keeping their wingbeat frequency constant.
Canadian author Steven Galloway explores the fickle nature of memory in "The Confabulist," his book about the life and death of one of the world's most famous magicians, Harry Houdini. The book's main character, Martin Strauss, reflects on a life in which he believes he killed the Hungarian-American escape artist.
A solar-powered family car completed its drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco fuelled by good vibes and pure California sunshine. And after turning the heads of gobsmacked onlookers during its journey up California's scenic Pacific Coast Highway, the creators of "Stella" are dreaming of a day when their futuristic vehicle is a commonplace sight.
Walentyna Koziol was born with impaired vision. Fast-forward half a century and she is sailing a yacht through the mist on a lake in eastern Poland, without a care in the world. "I can't see the sails, but so what!" she says as she grips the rudder, occasionally joining in on the sea shanties being sung by fellow crewmembers. "I feel the wind in my ears, on my forehead, on my face," she said to explain how she gets her sense of direction. "If my right cheek is cold and the wind is blowing hard, I know that it's coming from starboard."
