Airline Seats – Quota For Women

Yahaan bhi quota?!

It’s been suggested that this is the reaction to an incident where a female passenger was groped by a male co-passenger.

Could be that I am the only one who can’t seem to understand the logic or the point of this Six Seat Women Only Quota.

Pretty soon, some genius will launch an airline or a particular flight ONLY for women passengers. And perhaps, I will be able to see some point to that.

One thing is for sure, that definitely won’t bother me as much as THIS news article.

BlackBerry Vienna / Mercury / DTEK 70/40… There Is Hope!

A glimmer of hope.

We wait…

This Is NOT ‘Art’!

USD 14,000… and here is what you get:

Walead Beshty’s FedEx® Large Box, LA to NYC is part of a series of FedEx works that the artist began in 2007. For these works, the artist uses the FedEx Express service to mail laminated glass boxes, constructed to the exact dimensions of the standard FedEx boxes. Fueled by his interest in how art objects acquire meaning, Beshty’s FedEx works record their movement from place to place, in both the shattering patterns left behind on the glass box, and the shipping labels on the FedEx packaging. Beshty’s motivation in this series is also to comment on the “perversity of a corporation owning a shape,” as the boxes are proprietary volume owned by FedEx.

The box measures 18 x 12.5 x 18 in. The glass measures 17.75 x 12.25 x 3.25 in. The installed dimensions are variable.
