The Best is Still to Come — Indian Air Force Jaguars

As we lament the premature passing of the Jaguar in RAF service and look around to see that in France, Ecuador and Nigeria the venerable lady has also been laid to rest, we could be forgiven in thinking that the sands of time were also running out with the last two operators, Oman and India.

It may therefore come as a surprise to many that although Oman is considering an imminent replacement, in India the type is not only still going from strength to strength but has only just recently finished production, the last aircraft coming off the line as

The basic kit lens

Some compelling reasons for choosing the humble kit lens over its hugely priced, large aperture, high-end siblings.

Contrary to popular notion, the standard kit lens, be it the l8-55mm for APS-C sensors or the 14-42mm for micro-four third cameras, is perhaps the best value for money lens available.

Baroness Lane-Fox* of Soho has only been a member of the Lords for a matter of months, but she’s already raised a few bristly eyebrows by bagging her own coathook in the Peers’ Entrance. ‘One of them bustled up and asked, «How did you manage that? Normally you have to wait for ages!’» That’s Martha for you. She may be petite, as softly spoken as a mouse with laryngitis and still walking with a cane after a catastrophic car accident in 2004 that left her pelvis shattered, but don’t even think about messing.

Oxford-educated Martha, 40, is still most often

The Balkans Regional Approach to Air Defence (BRAAD) initiative

Back in 1994 the US government had the astute idea of offering fully equipped standardised air sovereignty operations centres (ASOCs) to the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Poland: a decision that considerably enhanced their NATO candidacies and enabled them to plug right into the alliance’s air defence operational picture after they became members in 1999.

While those were fatter times — the ASOCs. worth USD25 million, were donated by Washington — something similar is now happening in the Balkans, although no-one is giving away the equipment for free this time.

At play is the Balkans Regional Approach to Air Defence (BRAAD):

The art of fashion

Under the artistic direction of Marc Jacobs, luxury fashion house Louis Vuitton has conflated the worlds of fashion and art through its collaborations with significant contemporary artists such as Stephen Sprouse, Takashi Murakami and Yayoi Kusama. Gillian Serisier examines how these creative collaborations have helped to reposition the brand within the realm of artistic innovation.

Transforming the classic brown and gold monogram into a riot of 33 colours, Japanese artist Takashi Murakami exploded colour into the Louis Vuitton brand and prompted a cult of collecting.

In 2001 Stephen Sprouse’s emblazoned graffiti gave Louis Vuitton street cred, while, in 2005, French

the art of surprise

Canberra-based industrial designer Chris Hardy’s clean and minimal aesthetic is driven by a rational approach to materials and an interest in finding surprise in the everyday.

Canberra-based designer Chris Hardy feels compelled to make. “I grew up in quite an unusual family. I grew up making, painting and drawing things. Always creating, always in Dad’s studio making stuff,” he says. “My father’s an artist, my grandmother’s an artist, uncles are artists, and now, with all the cousins, we’ve got photographers and fashion designers too, so there’s a gene somewhere in the Hardy family that’s very heavily geared towards creativity in
