Port of L.A. Reports Record-Breaking Export Volume

Container export volume at the Port of Los Angeles grew 16 percent in 2010 compared with the previous year.
“The 2010 volume gains far surpass our initial estimates, and we’ve been able to facilitate some export opportunities in the past year through our Trade Connect initiative and increased networking with local business stakeholders,” said Geraldine Knatz, the port’s executive director. Trade Connect is a series of workshops that help domestic business successfully navigate the rules, regulations and logistics of exporting to countries such as India, China, Japan and Korea.
Last year, total exports rose 10.3 percent to 1.84 million 20-foot containers—up from approximately 1.67 million 20-foot containers in 2009 and beating out the previous export record of 1.78 million 20-foot containers in 2008. Imports increased as well, growing 12.8 percent in 2010.
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said the surge in container volume bodes well for the city and the nation. “With this 16 percent increase in 2010 container volumes, the Port of Los Angeles is putting people back to work and doing its part to help President Obama meet his goal to double national exports over the next five years,” Villaraigosa said in a statement.
The Port of Los Angeles, which is the busiest port in the nation in terms of container volume, handled a total of 7.8 million 20-foot containers in 2010. That included all loaded and unloaded containers coming in and out of the port.
The Port of Long Beach saw its export volume in cargo containers jump 15.6 percent to 1.56 million 20-foot containers. Overall, container traffic at the Long Beach port improved by nearly 24 percent.—Erin Barajas

Austrian Lace Booming In Ngeria.



Austria’s embroidered fabric for years together has been used to produce attractive multi-coloured clothing for Nigeria.

The embroidered fabric which is manufactured in Vorarlberg, a small hilly region sharing its border with Switzerland, is popularly known as “lace” in the region. The fabric is then exported to Nigeria, where it is converted into high-end clothing which local people customarily put on during marriages or other special functions.

This linkage between the two absolutely distinct countries is being displayed at an exhibit at Vienna's Ethnology Museum. The exhibit showcases a diverse collection of various designed garments, ranging from subtle to gaudy ones.

The Austrian fabric is now a part of life and is interwoven in the much admired culture of Nigeria.

People visiting the Museum can have a close look at the fabric, which usually contains flowers in its design. Some of these fabrics are even prettified with precious stones or embellished with velvet.

In 1960, embroidery manufacturers from Austria coincidentally discovered the Nigerian market, when a trader halted in Lagos, capital of Nigeria, and saw a number of women dressed in colourful embroidered garments. The trader revisited the country with Austrian samples, and eventually the trade flourished.

The Austrian lace industry, registered an overall turnover of around €55 million ($76.6 million) last year, almost 50 percent of which was exported to Nigeria, followed by other African nations like Senegal and Ghana.

Las Vegas, NV - January 15, 2011 - Miss Nebraska 2010 Teresa Scanlan from Gerig, Nebraska was crowned Miss America 2011 at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The final night of the 90th Anniversary of the Miss America Pageant presented by DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse was broadcast live from Las Vegas on ABC.

Teresa's triumphant walk across the stage was just the beginning of a journey that will take her to every corner of the country during her year of service as Miss America 2011. She will travel approximately 20,000 miles each month speaking to audiences about her platform of Eating Disorders: A Generation at Risk, and acting as the National Goodwill Ambassador for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for children's hospitals, is the national platform partner of the Miss America Organization.

In addition, Miss America 2011 will be the official spokesperson for Joseph Ribkoff International Clothing Company, who will provide Teresa with a full wardrobe for the year.

Teresa will be a student at Patrick Henry College. Her scholastic ambition is to attend law school and she ultimately hopes to become a judge and eventually a politician.

Second runner-up honors and a $20,000 scholarship were awarded to Miss Hawaii Jalee Fuselier. Her talent was a vocal performance to "Feelin' Good," and her personal platform is "Ready for the Real World."

Miss New York Claire Buffie and Miss Delaware Kayla Martell were the winners of ABC's America's Choice, an online competition where the public had the opportunity to vote for their favorite Miss America contestant. The contestants were announced at the beginning of the Miss America broadcast and became the 12th and 13th finalists to compete in the live finale. Two contestants were voted into the Top 15 by their fellow contestants and they were Miss Kentucky Djuan Trent and Miss Oregon Stephenie Steers.

Victoria Beckham is hands-on with handbags.

Victoria Beckham on her handbag line.Although there has been lots of cruel gossip in the past about Victoria Beckham's actual input into the design of her label, the fashion world has finally come to accept that she's in it for the long haul.

However, every fashion design expert- needs an accessories sidekick, and for those in the know, Katie Hillier is always the first call.

Already the eye behind Marc by Marc Jacobs' accessories, Hillier cut her teeth with Luella and can now be 'co-credited' with the sell-out success of Beckham's first collection of handbags.

Victoria has been photographed frequently over the past few months, devotedly carrying her own bags instead of her previously beloved collection of Herm├Ęs Birkin and Kelly bags.
