According to the Federal Statistical Office about seven million people with a disability live in Germany. At the REHACARE in Duesseldorf, the trade fair for people with a disability every year developers present new products that are aimed to make the lives of people with disabilities a little easier. Including many technical aids that allow them to do different sports. According to a recent study the interest in disabled sports is increasing constantly - not only due to the recent German success at the Paralympic Games in Vancouver. Therefore it is no surprise that at the first Mobicup - a actionday of sports for the disabled - a lot was going on.
It all begins in a sleek warehouse where 122 percussion instruments are arranged to create a precision-driving course full of angles and straightaways. Each instrument has a tiny lever. An Ultrasonic Blue 2011 Lexus IS sport sedan revs its engine, wheels spinning as it roars to life to debut its musical prowess. The vehicle navigates the raceway, precisely tripping each and every drum lever on the track, creating a beat as it speeds by, igniting the base, snare, toms and cymbals. Through it all, the IS doesn’t knock over a single instrument. As it comes screeching to a halt, the final drum beat is triggered. The new 2011 IS has just laid down its first custom track.

It\'s a dramatic moment. In an ultra-modern audio studio, a Pearl White Lexus LFA supercar faces its challenger: a lone crystal champagne flute on a pedestal alongside a sleek amplifier. The vehicle\'s keyless ignition is engaged, and its rear wheels start spinning on a dynamometer. The engine roars louder and louder, the speedometer clicks past 150, 160, 170 mph. That\'s when the glass quivers and shimmies until – kshhh! – the flute shatters in gorgeous slow motion.

32,000 years ago Org the caveman tried to sell his invention, the wheel, for a chicken. In person and then via his newer invention, the PC; however, when he tried to sell his wheel by logging into OLX free online classifieds, he couldnï¿½t. You can!
Playing "Love is a song" from Walt Disneys Bambi on my Compton electronic tonewheel organ. Unfortunately, I had to place the camera close to the speaker hence there is some distortion. Therefore I recommend listening to this through headphones.
Tools are supposed to make normal life easier, at least that is how it should be. People with disabilities, however, are dependant on such tools in order to be able to live their lives in a normal way. Ten percent of the Germans live with a recognized disability - for these people - and for their families and carers - the fair RehaCare in Düsseldorf offers an array of already known devices - and some new ones are of course presented as well.
After his win in Hungary, then a two-week F1-enforced summer shutdown, it's Lewis Hamilton's first day back at the 'office'. The MP4-24B may still essentially be the same car, but upgrades to the floor, rear and front wings mean the car is now competitive. With the consecutive races of Valencia and Spa next-up (although he won't now get the chance to race Michael Schumacher) Lewis can't wait to get back behind the wheel again...

20 on it, call me on it, on this table(place your bets)
I am not an arguer so you should probably save your breath
you are gonna need it when you're runnin like a lazy pet

next time you'll listen but there's not a next imagine that
no one takes the minutes to find out that i am a cool cat
(i second that opinion)hey,jay(what)(shut up your ass)
they will never get it so i force it like abortion
on a poor kid who's family just knows they can't afford it
to live in this society with rovers and porches
their pinto's on 10s, wheels hot as 10 torches
to some it's a sin,
to some it's life choices
truth is(dum dum)
keep your minds open
(open up wide)
and listen to the veteran
life is shorter than my attention when I'm in netherlands
blowing hella dough on hella weed and hella hashish man
i feel like this is a holloween party for candy man
(i see dead people) I see, i see dead people
it's always a big honor when i talk to real people
instead of haters, fakers, occassional pansy ass
today marks a brand new era, my people raise up your glass
in the air(air)
taste it like the bread at mass
I'm a lighter

firefighters are like...'nope, i ain't touchin that'
i approach ever future like, what's a past?
if you ain't learn from your mistakes?
(here's a common task)
take a rake
scrape it across your face
and you'll know what it's like for hell's gates to slam on your ass
