5 Web Design Traits That (Thankfully) Died With The 90s

by Dan Dunton
When the Internet entered most people’s homes in the mid to late 90s it was a revelation, everyone could access more information than they could ever dream of, and a million and one bedroom programmers thought they would get in on the action. As “web design” was in its infancy, nobody really know what was good and what was bad, they just went with the coolest features they could find from reading their HTML books.

Putin’s new limo: Top 10 Russian-made designs in online contest

Published time: February 26, 2013 19:00
Edited time: February 26, 2013 18:57

Image from Motor.ru

For big companies, the delicate task of designing a new car for the Russian president is still ahead. But dozens of professional and amateur designers have already rushed to compete in the “Auto for the President” contest, offering over 100 entries.

The contest, organized by Russian web portal CarDesign.ru and sponsored by Marussia Motors, invited everyone aged 18 or more to try and devise a modern look for the presidential limousine and its cortege.

A prize of 150,000 rubles ($5,000) for the best project, as well as decent rewards for two other winners, attracted more than 40 skilled professionals and design students, as well as some 80 amateur designers from Russia and worldwide.

The challenge was set to combine such household retro brands as “ZiL” and “Chaika” with modern designs and features. However, the contestants were also allowed to think of their own “perspective design.”

The deadline was set for the end of February, and the jury will select the winners on May 1.

The best project is meant to provide the basis for a new series of presidential cars. Although it will be of Russian design, it’s still planned to be manufactured abroad.

Concept by Yaroslav Yakovlev and Bernard Weel (image from Motor.ru)

The authors chose the ZiL as the "only Russian brand with a recognizable image, experience in building high-end cars and a history rich enough to correspond to the task."

Concept by Vladimir Bolotov (image from Motor.ru)

To associate with a high-tech and reliable technology the project should use Sukhoi brand in its marketing campaign, the author suggests. Russia’s best car should take advantage of the experience in the development of advanced military technology accumulated over many decades.

Concept by Vladimir Filatov (image from Motor.ru)

The author offers an “austere and comfortable” limousine under the brand Marussia.


Concept by Sergey Fedulov (image from Motor.ru)

In his concept the author tried to embody the elements of post-WWII era Soviet car design into the modern presidential limousine. The main inspiration was the ZIS-110.

Concept by Marcell Sebestyen (image from Motor.ru)

This was based on the “most luxurious Russian car ever made,” the legendary GAZ-13 Chayka. The designer tried to preserve traditional elements in the modern form of the limo.

Assignment: Design a Flag for a New Socialist/Communist America

Parents and educators are outraged over an electronic curriculum system being used in Texas public schools after a recent classroom assignment called for students to design a flag for a new socialist/commuist nation.

A lesson plan for 6th graders reads as follows:

Notice socialist/communist nations use symbolism on their flags representing various aspects of their economic system. Imagine a new socialist nation is creating a flag and you have been put in charge of creating a flag. Use symbolism to represent aspects of socialism/communism on your flag. What kind of symbolism/colors would you use?

The CSCOPE curriculum is used in 875 school districts across Texas. At a recent Texas Education Committee meeting, Senators and witnesses questioned the effectiveness of the program used as a primary tool to educate millions of impressionable minds.

Committee Chairman Dan Patrick, R-Houston, called it “a mess.”

One witness compared the system to “mind control,” and an algebra teacher wept as he described quitting because he felt he was “aiding and abetting a crime” by using CSCOPE in his classroom.

A string of witnesses before the Senate Education Committee criticized the program for promoting liberal values they said are anti-Christian at best and openly socialist at worst.

They also complained that it is hard for nonteachers to get a look at the program.

“Discontent is rampant across the state,” said Peggy Venable, a frequent critic of public schools and the Texas director of Americans for Prosperity.

Source: Ft. Worth Star Telegram

There exists a double standard within the halls of the American indoctrination centers we refer to as public schools.

A hearing impaired three year old was recently suspended for violating a school weapons policy because the hand sign for his name resembled a gun. Just a few weeks ago, a six year old was expelled from a Texas school when she brought a pink bubble gun to school for show and tell. Administrators justified the expulsion by claiming that her actions constituted a “terroristic threat.”

Fundamental bedrock American principles protected under the US Constitution, such as the right to bear arms, are vilified by our government sponsored education system.

Yet, promoting Communism, a system responsible for the democide of hundreds of millions of people over the last century (ironically, by way of the gun) is perfectly acceptable.

Children most certainly need to be taught about the dangers of socialism and communism, but our education system needs to use some common sense when doing so.

How many of the educators giving this assignment to their students mentioned the fact that the economics of Communism leads to strife and loss of liberty? That the laws within those systems are implemented through violence and much suffering?

How many of them explained that the only way to prevent such systems from taking hold is to have an armed populace that can fight back against the tyranny?

This is what we’re up against in America today. Sixty years ago we were holding Congressional hearings in an effort to identify Communists in this country.

Today, we’re electing them to the highest of political offices.
