Good Things: July 6, 2010

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Let's take a look at some Good Things in the news.

Good news for style fans around the world; Christian Dior reacted to financial worries with "Bolder is Better" attitude at the fashion house's dramatic, technicolor "Garden" show at the Rodin Museum in Paris. Jazzy colors, cinched waists, and ballerina ball gowns helped bring to life an electric garden on the first day of Haute Couture Week. Monsieur Dior first rocked the fashion world back in the 1950s when he created a new silhouette for women; framing his models with just a violent coat and cinched red belt.

We talked about "Paul" the octopus last week when the eight-armed prognosticator in Berlin picked Germany as the winner of the Germany/Argentina World Cup soccer match. This week, Paul is NOT picking the home team; he picked Spain to win today's semi-final match. So far in this year's World Cup, "Paul" has a 100 percent accuracy rate predicting the outcome of Germany's games. They can only hope that "Paul" will be wrong for once.

Two Latvian women are launching a new soap business from an un-likely source.. cow dung. The ladies behind the product say they got the idea from India. The dung is supplied from three cows that are given no additives and just eat grass. After drying into powder form, the entrepreneurs say one spoonful in a bucket of water can disinfect a whole apartment.
