Kim Kardashian's New Bikini Shoot

She's been focusing on her career and relationship over the last few months.

But Kim Kardashian reminded her fans just why they love her as she stripped down to her bikini for a racy new photoshoot in the Miami heat last week.

Getting back to basics, the reality star showed off her famous figure as she posed in a number of skimpy bikinis, in case anyone had forgotten what she was famous for.

She's in the process of evolving her style since she started dating Kanye West, but Kim is better known for what she looks like without her clothes on, than for her fashion sense.

Clearly wanted to remind the world about her money-making figure, just in case it had slipped everyone's minds, the 32-year-old did what she does best at the sizzling photoshoot.

Celebrating the festive period in true Kardashian style, the star showed off her perfectly bronzed body as she stripped off.

Kim is now gearing up for Christmas and has started decorating her home, telling her Twitter fans on Thursday: 'Christmas candles all over the house...heavenly!'

Her mother Kris recently stated that all the famous family will be spending the holiday at her California home with husband Bruce Jenner.

Largest Container Ship in the World

The world’s largest container ship, the CMA CGM Marco Polo, is on a Trans-Pacific visit to Europe. Aboard the ship are 4,000 containers carrying goods destined for businesses and shops in time for Christmas. The ship is actually severely under-loaded. At its full capacity the CMA CGM Marco Polo could carry a staggering 16,000 containers, but the ship would have been unable to navigate the waters of the Elbe River between the North Sea and Europe's second largest port in Hamburg, which are too shallow for the latest generation of super container ships.

At 396 meters long and 54 meters wide, the Marco Polo is larger than a US Navy aircraft carrier and longer than four football pitches. It became the largest containership in the world measured by capacity just last month, on 6 November 2012, beating the previous best of 11,000 containers that the Emma Mærsk and her seven sisters of the Mærsk E-class are capable of carrying.

Since 1952, every vessel as it approaches on the River Elba from the estuary has been ceremoniously saluted, with the Hamburg flag being lowered and the international flag hoisted to signify “Bon voyage”. The salute is then repeated for those leaving Hamburg. Sometimes ships enter into the spirit by dipping their flag or sounding their fog horn.

The biggest vessels are treated to an even more solemn ritual on their arrival into and departure from German territorial waters: in addition to the flag ceremony the national anthem of the country under which the vessel is registered is played. This was one such big occasion. Many shipping enthusiasts and spectators braved the cold weather and lined the shores to watch the giant container ship dock on December 12.

New container ships such as the CMA CGM Marco Polo are not only impressive for their sheer size, but also for their sophisticated environmentally friendly technology. The CMA CGM Marco Polo has a twisted leading edge rudder which improves the hydrodynamics of the vessel and so reduces energy consumption and CO2 emissions. Its electronically controlled engine consumes an average of 3 percent less fuel and 25 percent less lub oil. Its fuel tanks are protected by double hull to prevent oil leakage in the event of a disaster. The hull is optimised to reduce energy consumption even further. It also features an all-new, chemical-free ballast water treatment system that protects marine ecosystems by limiting the transfer of micro-organisms from ocean to ocean.

CMA CGM Marco Polo won't be the biggest container ship in the world for long. The Maersk Triple E class, currently under construction and slated for launch next summer, can carry 18,000 containers at once.
