Auto Talk: Meet Mercedes Jellinek, the woman behind the name

IFWT_MercedesJellinek

Gottlieb Daimler, Wilhelm Maybach and Carl Benz are among those who have granted their names to the house of The Three-Pointed Star. The name the world knows best, Mercedes, is also an eponym but its owner has lived in a more obscure corner of lore. The personal effects of Hans-Peter Schlosser include photos of his mother, one Mercedes Adrienne Ramona Manuela Jellinek, the woman whose name continues to launch a thousand ‘ships’ about every seven hours. Schlosser was Mercedes’ son, and his keepsakes have wound their way to the Mercedes-Benz archives, which had been missing an informative record of the woman herself.

Things can get crazy after winning an NBA Championship.  There are bound to be so many people coming from so many places trying to do so many things, that it’s virtually assured that there is general craziness happening after a series-clinching win. And in that madness, things can get misplaced.

Including, as it turns out, the Bill Russell NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Award. That’s exactly what happened to LeBron James a little less than a week ago.

(Photo) No YMCMB x CBE Beef On This Side: Chris Brown, Tyga & The Game Link Up

Chris Brown may have gotten into a huge club brawl with YMCMB artist Drake a few weeks back, but that has nothing to do with fellow YM artist Tyga! T-Raw just posted this pic to his Instagram account a few minutes ago, chilling with both Chris and The Game. For a second, I really thought that was Drake on the right with dyed hair! LOL! The tattoos fixed that up for me though. Word is that Wayne wants Chris and Drake to settle their beef ASAP, so perhaps Tyga can help jump start that!

Auto Talk: Pikes Peak Hill Climb postponed due to Colorado wildfire

IFWT_PikesPeak2012

The 90th running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb has been officially postponed after race officials met with the U.S. Forest Service yesterday afternoon. The event was originally scheduled to run on July 8th, with technical inspections starting July 3rd, but a wildfire in the area, which began on June 23rd, is less than five percent contained and has currently burned over 18,500 acres. The decision to postpone the race was less about direct interference with the fire – the blaze is currently heading away from Pikes Peak – and more about taking away resources desperately needed by the city of Colorado Springs and the surrounding area.
