If you’ve ever driven the E80 from Valladolid past Salamanca to Ciudad Rodrigo, Spain you’ll have seen them. The white washed haciendas, situated in dry, hilly fields, populated by oak trees. If you have good eye sight you can spot the black and brown bulls resting underneath these oak trees.
Sheltering themselves from the scorching sun. This is where the bulls are bred. The bulls you see in bull fights. They are given a life of luxury. All so they give the crowds a good showing when they are finally called upon to enter the arena. When it enters it destiny it is confronted by noise, horses and men trying to get its attention. It makes the bull go crazy.
Exactly what the crowd has been waiting for. All the bull can do is give as good as it gets during the time it’s still alive. And boy, sometimes it succeeds with flying colours.
This guys is Cara Lyons, the latest sexy Irish hottie who looks great in very little clothing!
Cara, tell us about yourself?
I’m a pro glamour model from the countryside of Galway, Ireland. I started fashion modelling when I was about 16.
I have always been really artistic since I was a child with sketching and sculpture and I think that’s why modelling and creating photographic art was the next step for me. NowI mainly model glamour style but I like doing fashion too. Fashion was what I started off with but there is something about glamour modelling that makes me feel so alive.You have more freedom you’re not just modelling an outfit or handbag and making them look good, with glamour you’re modelling, your body, your emotion. Its more real.
I also like the way glamour models promote a more satisfactory body image. They have curves and like to show them off. Its all about feeling sexy and delivering an image that takes your breath away.
And what makes you feel sexy?
Many things. I love getting dressed up for a night out and wearing clothes that hug my figure. I feel sexy in high heels and of course modelling lingerie makes me feel sexy. My favourite type of lingerie would probably be the classic stockings and garter belt. Anything silky to the touch is good too!
You must be pretty confident with your body?
Well yea I have been told best part of my body is my eyes but I know I am also super lucky to have a toned stomach. I don’t think I would pose nude. Don’t you guys like a little mystery?

On August 5, 2010, the roof of the San José copper-gold mine collapsed, leaving 33 miners trapped underground. Almost 2 months later they are still trapped, but a plan to free them has finally been put into action. Drilling is currently underway to open up a shaft to the miners through which a metal cage can be let down and the 33 men hauled up one by one. Family and friends, who have set up camp above where the miners are trapped, have high hopes the men will all be out before November.

Sunday, August 29, 2010 marked the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina’s landfall in Louisiana. Five years ago, Katrina struck the Gulf Coast, centered on New Orleans, as a Category 3 hurricane with sustained winds of 125 mph (205 km/h). More than fifty levees were breached by its storm surge, causing massive flooding. Over 1,800 Gulf Coast residents lost their lives then, and damages totaled more than $80 billion – the costliest hurricane in U.S. history. Many intangible things were damaged then as well, communities were erased as their neighborhoods washed away, much of historic New Orleans was badly damaged, and frustration and anger remain towards an inadequate immediate response by the U.S. government. Collected here are images from five years ago, as well as some from the past few weeks, in New Orleans and the surrounding area. (49 photos total)

Last Sunday, February 14th was the first day of the Chinese Lunar New Year. It is also the beginning of the Chinese Spring Festival, with celebrations and observations by ethnic Chinese and others around the world, welcoming in the Year of the Tiger. Conservationists are hoping to capitalize on the Year of the Tiger by calling attention to the plight of the endangered big cats. The number of wild tigers is thought to have dropped from 100,000 at the beginning of the 20th century to fewer than 3,000 today. In September, the World Bank and Russia will hold a summit on tiger conservation in Vladivostok, encouraging countries that are host to wild tigers to reach agreements to further protect and expand their habitat.

Fans of the New Orleans Saints have been asking the same question all week leading up to Super Bowl XLIV in South Florida: “‘Who Dat’ gonna beat dem Saints?” They got their answer Sunday night. Nobody. The team battled back from an early deficit and punctuated their victory with an interception return for a touchdown off the usually steady hand of Colts quarterback Peyton Manning. Manning’s counterpart on the Saints, Drew Brees, played flawlessly in delivering the first title to the beleaguered city. And the eternal party on Bourbon Street could now add the word “victory” to the celebration. ( 28 photos total)
