The L1 concept car unveiled at the Frankfurt auto show pushes the boundaries of vehicle design and draws more inspiration from gliders than conventional automobiles. The only question the company’s engineers asked when designing the L1 was, “How would a car have to look and be built to consume as little energy as possible.” Their answer was small, light and extremely aerodynamic. Those guidelines led to a car that requires just 1.38 liters of diesel fuel to go 100 kilometers

Rabindranath Tagore (7
May 1861 – 7 August 1941), sobriquet Gurudev,was a Bengali polymath. As a poet, novelist, musician, and playwright, he reshaped
in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. As author of Gitanjali and its "profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse", he became Asia's first Nobel laureate by winning the 1913
rahmin from Calcutta, Tagor
poems at age eight. At age sixteen, he published his first substantial poetry under the pseudonym Bhanushingho ("Sun Lion")and wrote his first short stories and dramas in 1877. Tagore denounced the British Raj and supported the Indian Independence Movement. His efforts endure in his vast canon and in the institution he founded, Visva-Bharati University.
Tagore modernised Bengali art by rejecting the strictures of rigid classical Indian forms. His novels, short stories, songs, dance-dramas, and essays ranged over political and personal topics alike. Gitanjali (Song Offerings), Gora (Fair-Faced), and Ghare-Baire (The Home and the World) are among his best-known works, and his verse, short stories, and novels were acclaimed for their lyricism, colloquialism, meditative naturalism, and philosophical contemplation. Two Tagore songs are the national anthems of Bangladesh and India: Amar Shonar Bangla and Jana Gana Mana.

Born in Yokohama to parents originally from Fukui, he attended Tokyo Imperial University, where he first met and studied under Ernest Fenollosa. In 1890, Okakura was one of the principal founders of the first Japanese fine-arts academy, Tokyo Bijutsu Gakko (Tokyo School of Fine Arts) and a year later became the head, though he was later ousted from the school in an administrative struggle. Later, he also founded Nihon Bijutsuin (Japan Institute of Fine Arts) with Hashimoto Gahōand Yokoyama Taikan. He was invited by William Sturgis Bigelow to the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 1904 and became the first head of the Asian art division in 1910.
Okakura was a high-profile urbanite who had an international sense of self. In the Meiji period he was the first dean of the Tokyo Fine Arts School (now the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music). He wrote all of his main works in English. Okakura researched Japan's traditional art and traveled to Europe, the United States, China and India. He gave the world an image of Japan as a member of the East, in the face of a massive onslaught of Western culture.
His book, The Ideals of the East (1904), published on the eve of the Russo-Japanese War, is famous for its opening line, "Asia is one." He argued that Asia is "one" in its humiliation, of falling behind in achieving modernization, and thus being colonized by the Western powers. This was an early expression of Pan-Asianism. Later Okakura felt compelled to protest against a Japan that tried to catch up with the Western powers, but by sacrificing other Asian countries in the Russo-Japanese War.

Quarter Life is a theater group focused on training, developing and showcasing talents from the senior sector of the society. Its members are from ages 50 and above, mostly retired individuals.
The objective of Quarter Life is to empower its members and give them the opportunity to reinvent themselves through various projects that can maximize their potentials in a caring artistic environment through the performing arts disciplines of voice, dance and acting.
Our main goal as a senior theater group is to defuse all frustrations, depressions and other senior-related problems and transform all of it to a more health and wellness, positive outlook. We believe that the only salvation for our senior members is to keep them active. Thus, our goal is to influence and guide our members to have a creative mind-set which can be transformed and experienced through the performing arts.
A SHORT HISTORY
The idea of putting up a senior theater group started from a very simple conversation between Professor Jerome D. Vinarao (Founding Artistic Director of Center for Arts Foundation and a member of the Rotary Club of Makati-Rockwell) and Mr. Atsukuni Munetomo (a Japanese businessman and a member of the Rotary Club of Makati-South) during a joint Rotary Club celebration on June 2009. Mr. Munetomo thought of the idea of creating a group of senior retirees who will be given the chance to perform onstage. And since Professor Vinarao is in the field of teaching and directing performing arts, the two immediately clicked and continued to plan and brainstorm. Since then, the idea has grown into a reality and looks forward to a very productive future.
