Common Hold

What is needed is equal standard of housing for all. Common Hold is another type of management company for buildings owned by a owner management company. It was introduced in England in 2002. I read through the government guidelines. This concept is all about owners of flats within the system having the right to determine… Continue reading Common Hold

What3Words

is the best logistics invention for mapping. The world is divided into squares and each square is given a name made up of three words. This is brilliant and it stops apps sending you to the wrong address. Because post codes are misleading as they encompass larger areas. The What3Words address is that one little… Continue reading What3Words

Healthy air for children to breathe

I raised 5 children and have more grandchildren. Health for children is very important to me. Of course parents are now more aware about the dangers of exhaust fumes from cars and want healthy air for the kids to breathe. It is probably not feasible to close roads. We have got roads for a purpose,… Continue reading Healthy air for children to breathe

Closing popular bus routes

Another bit of drama created by Sadiq Khan is his desire to close the most popular bus routes because of 'government cuts'. Obviously it is designed for maximum anti-government protest. Nobody who has to make cuts would cut the most popular routes, as those routes obviously make money for the service provider. It is sheer… Continue reading Closing popular bus routes

This ad personifies all the squabbles XR demos are trying to tell us and attempt to bring solutions. It describes how our need for greed is responsible for all our ills.

Not so revolutionary

Just saw this very interesting statistic on BBC, which show that the percentage of money we used on food sank from 65 - 28%. We would have cooked all our own food and lived healthily. Now we almost live solely on highly processed food with higher obesity and worsening health. In my view that is… Continue reading Not so revolutionary

WTW

Short for What Three words. A very interesting app, which divides the whole planet into 3 meter squares. so you can find places in the most remote areas, even on mountains, forest or deserts. Quite not sure what would happen if for example an earth quake would open gaps and enlarge the Earth’s circumference. Would… Continue reading WTW

Code Red

Today is all full of climate change and how we need to lower our carbon foot print. Yet, China re-opens coal mines, which cause a lot of carbon foot print. Shouldn't there be an international law that it is not allowed to re-open coal mines. So far it's all talk the changes we are supposed… Continue reading Code Red

Airlines on the forefront of freedom fighting

I am really glad that Ryanair take up the fight for a freedom to travel. As much as I do not fly nor have a car, I defend the right of everybody to move freely. As the BBC reports, a conglomerate of travel industry owners are taking the government to court over restrictions and the… Continue reading Airlines on the forefront of freedom fighting
