Ying Cai, CEO & Fashion Designer at YingCai, Inc.

Hello, Everyone! Today's featured Fashion Designer is Ying Cai of New York, New York (USA). 
Ying Cai grew up watching her mother sew, draft patterns, and do sketches for her and her families' whole wardrobe. Another fashion inspiration was her uncle's ownership of a few major clothing manufacturing facilities in south Asia that produce many lines for major designers, all over the world.

At the age of four, Cai started to draw, play music, and dance. At the age of twelve, she started professional ballet training with her coaches from the Kirov Ballet (St. Petersburg). Five years later, Cai was accepted to the Beijing Dance Academy and awarded a scholarship. Cai's nine years of studying dance gave her a great understanding of how to bring out the positive aspects of different body types (with fashion). At the same time, she understood that ballet was not for her.

In 2004, the same year she graduated from college, Ying Cai was granted a fellowship to pursue her Master of Art in the United States. During grad school, she discovered her enormous passion for, and interest in, fashion.  She decided to go to New York before graduation.

Hello, Everyone! Today's features Architect, Paolo Soleri, The Prophet in the Desert.  I learned of Mr. Soleri while updating blog links for this blog.  The video trailer is for the documentary The Vision of Paolo Soleri: Prophet in the Desert, and features this great architect's exceptional accomplishments, which began in the '70s, toward his prophetic foresight of today's state of our world. 

This video, also, gives us a glimpse of Paolo Soleri's agelessness; he was still active toward achieving his goal(s) well into his 90s!  Watch him ride his bike!  Like Mr. Soleri, obviously did, I've set my mind to be totally active, ageless and productive well into my 90s and beyond.  Based on what I've seen so far, I think he is another good example of a long, positively-productive life. 

A few interesting facts about Paolo Soleri are:
