Afternoon Tea 7.8.08

Isla Moda will feature 80 residences with a limited-edition Karl Lagerfeld design, Dubai Infinity Holdings announced. Sadly, I can’t deliver a punchline cool enough for Karl so I’ll leave it at that. {Fashionista}

A Magnitude 6.0 earthquake shook up Peru today about 150 miles off of the border between Bolivia and Chile. While I was stunned by the recent news of another natural disaster, I was equally if not more astonished by my very poor sense of geography. {CNN}

Chinese gov, If China’s fat, then there’s no hope for the rest of the world, so please take action. {BBC}, a new Website that aims to teach “How to reduce [America’s] dependence on foreign oil” was officially launched today. The man behind it is T. Boone Pickens (LOVE that name) the founder and chairman of BP. TBP says it’s high time we look for “cleaner, cheaper and domestic energy resources.” {}
