The Timex Nail Watch : Get the Time on Your nails
We have seen many different types of futuristic watches with strange shapes and design but none so unique as this. Now lets welcome the Nail watch, that can be worn on the thumb. You may have never seen a watch that can be worn on the thumb but times are going to change thanks to Timex. Timex, in collaboration with Core77, held a global design competition called 2154: the future of time design. So what we are seeing here is the TX54 concept which was a runner up there.
Thanks to a translucent body, the design blends seamlessly with the nail while a selection of text color options and a glow feature activating on command make it supremely functional as well. Press the end of your thumbnail, and the watch will light up for you. A perfect blend of appearance, user interface, and technology, the nail watch passes most standards of modern design with flying colors thanks to its functional and minimalist appeal. The watch looks stylish and chic and has a touch of Geeky style as well.

Keys to success:
Bloom where you are planted. You have a choice to get back up after temporary set backs. Attitude is a small thing that makes a big difference.
If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there. Write your short term goals down on paper. I have discovered and continue to discover that putting your dreams and goals down on paper lock in or focus your belief that they can be achieved-even if you have to take a course correction in achieving your goals. Success comes in cans, failure comes in can’t.
Explore what is important to you. Maybe it is family, friends, your spirituality or working hard at any given task. I can assure you that your priorities will change as you grow older. Very important that you value yourself and treat yourself like the valuable gift from God that you are.
Birds of a feather flock together. This is to say that if you are hanging around winners or others with a “can do” mind-set, you’ll likely adapt to this same kind of thinking.
Remember–”SUCCESS LEAVES CLUES”.
Feelings may change, commitments do not. “Success is getting up one more time than you fall.” I have often wanted to give up, and then I must think to myself about what the consequences of giving up will be. Generally, this is more than enough of a motivation to make us stick to the task at hand even if we don’t feel like it. When the task is achieved, Wow!–”IT FEELS GREAT”.
Be an encourager and comforter to friends that are feeling discouraged. I promise that you will not regret this as you will be encouraged by one, if not many, when you are feeling down. Encouragement and love are contagious qualities that can change the minds of the most stubborn and “hard-to-get- along-with” people you know. I have seen it happen over and over again.

Top 18 Ways to Inspire Others to be Their Best
We all know people who are inspiring. But just how does one inspire others? Here are simple ways you can inspire people to be their best:
- Be a good example. People watch what you do more than they listen to what you say. Be someone worth emulating.
- Care about others.
- People don’t care about how much you know until they know how much you care. Ask questions. Take a genuine interest in people.
- Everyone goes through tough times. When you support people and encourage them through these times, you’ll be inspiring them to see the best in themselves and in the situation.
- Be inspired yourself.
- Look for people, ideas, environments and knowledge that you find inspiring and motivating.
- Share from your own experience.
- You have more to share than you realize. Mine the rich experiences of your life and share your wisdom from your unique point of view. You may be the only one who can touch someone with your inspiring message.
- Be vulnerable.
- Be willing to share your failures as well as your successes. Others will relate to you. They’ll understand that they’re not the only ones with challenges.
- Tell stories.
- Facts tell and stories sell. They inspire, too. We learn best from parables and we all need to develop our own inspiring stories.
- Be a good communicator.
- Increasing your ability to communicate effectively is a critical element for you to inspire others. Watch how you speak and what you say. Invest in your communication skills.
- Challenge people.
- Many of us have had teachers who at times seemed more like tormentors than mentors. They challenged us to do our best, and we were better for it.Practice “care-frontation”— the careful and caring confrontation of others.
- It may not follow that all readers are leaders, but certainly all leaders are readers.. Stay informed. Share what you read with others. Tell people about books that have inspired you. Share the knowledge.

Japan saw most of its infrastructure bombed back to the stone age in the final years of World War II, which makes the country’s post-war rejuvenation all the more astounding. Huge, complex public works projects saw a concrete & steel web of highways, bridges and interchanges blossom from the wreckage of war.
Today, shaped by the demands of restrictive space and economic boom & bust, Japan’s hardened transportation arteries display artistic forms that go far beyond their functions.
Above left is the Hakozaki Junction, part of the Metropolitan Expressway in Tokyo, and at right is the Hokko Junction in Osaka.These images illustrate the solution engineers used when building multi-lane highway interchanges in some of the world’s most crowded cities in Japan: go vertical!
Ken Ohyama has made it his mission to chronicle some of the more striking Japanese roadworks in a Flickr series called Interchange and a book of his photos available from Amazon. One of the more outstanding examples is The Hokko Junction shown above – a part of the Hanshin Expressway near Japan’s second city, Osaka.
Also in Osaka is the Higashiosaka (East Osaka) Loop of the Hanshin Expressway. The photographer’s technique gives the sweeping curve of the roadway an almost tubular appearance.
When engineers have space to work with, they take full advantage. This wide field view of the Higashiosaka interchange shows the almost organic complexity of a busy cloverleaf, resembling a living creature’s circulatory system with the vehicles acting as blood cells.
Highways upon highways without any end in sight.
One interesting feature of Japanese elevated highways: they often run above rivers or sea channels, using the available space above the water. Here are some of these “highways on the sea” .
The incredible Japanese road infrastructure really took off in the 1960 check out the vintage photo on the right.
Such “Blade runner” sights are commonplace now, brimming with urban energy.
By the way, for the tricky “urban density” photography, head over to this page.and see if you can spot something wrong with the image there.
Some sections of the Hanshin Expressway suffered severe damage during the 7.2 magnitude Great Hanshin Earthquake which hit the Kobe, Japan area in January of 1995, killing over 5,500 people and costing over $200 billion.
On the bright side, the affected sections of the highway did not “pancake”, as happened in the 1989 Loma Prieta quake, but instead slipped sideways and tumbled over. Either way, one doesn’t want to be driving through a highway interchange or junction when a big quake hits.
Recession, what recession?
Public works spending has long been the Japanese government’s preferred way to spend budget surpluses, boost employment, keep the ruling party’s supporters in the construction industry loyal, or all of the above. The highway depicted below is one of those projects, steadily overtaking a quiet city street like Godzilla in slow motion.
Which came first, the highway or the building? The question is moot as both have learned to accommodate one another. The Hanshin Expressway takes a shortcut through the 5th to 7th floors of Fukushima’s Gate Tower building, also known as the Bee Hive.
The story goes that the original building’s owner wanted to knock it down and rebuild, but was told by city planners that the space was being allocated to a newly planned exit of the expressway. Both sides refused to budge, and the compromise was completed in 1992.
Tokyo residents can easily avoid using the highways and expressways which crisscross the city, thanks to one of the world’s largest and most efficient subway systems, but when traffic is light they can be a pleasure to drive. The view can be pretty intense, as in the time-lapse photo below:
Urban density in Tokyo is simply astounding:
The Rainbow Bridge and the longest suspension bridge
Dark Roasted Blend has been covering some rather fascinating bridges before. Here are a few more – a spectacular sample from Japan. The 570 meter (1,870 ft) long Rainbow Bridge spans the northern part of Tokyo Bay and has been a city landmark since it opened in 1993. Two roadways, a transit line and pedestrian walkways all use the bridge, resulting in a seemingly chaotic tangle from certain angles.
It’s at night, however, that the Rainbow Bridge comes alive with signature color! Spotlights mounted at strategic locations bathe the bridge’s superstructure in prismatic glory. Best of all, the lighting is solar powered with energy stored during the day powering the light show at night:
Announced in 1969, the massive Kobe-Naruto highway route project stretches 81 kilometers to connect Japan’s main island of Honshu with the much smaller island of Shikoku to the south. The jewel in the crown is the 4-kilometer long Akashi Kaikyo Bridge, which cost $3.6 billion to build over the ten year period between 1988 and 1998:
Of course, any discussion of Japanese highways wouldn’t be complete without mention of Mount Fuji. The mountain’s iconic snowy peak is visible from Tokyo – on clear days, at least – but though it’s certainly possible to reach the dormant volcano’s doorstep via highway, taking the Shinkansen bullet train is a better bet.
