One of the biggest challenges for many major cities around the world is reducing the amount of traffic which exists. There are more cars on the road than ever before and many of the world’s major cities are becoming overpopulated, all of this results in heavier traffic, slower journeys and higher pollution. Local governments are taking action to resolve this, with some varying results. I spoke to the Managing Director of the International Road Transport Union (IRU) Boris Blanche, about what cities are doing to counter their traffic issues.

I have owned my house for just over 3 years now and because of financial restrictions, for the first two years that I was in the property, I did nothing inside it by way of decoration. Last year I decided that it was time for a change and so I decided that bit by bit, I would give my interior a makeover. As someone who is not particularly arty, and who can’t create a beautiful home such as the likes of Gary Friedman could, I decided to look elsewhere for inspiration. In truth, I pretty much stole ideas from other…

Unfortunately my dream was cut short because of a cartilage issue which I had, a shattering blow for me at that age. Thankfully at that time I had an amazing basketball coach David Giunta Newport Beach resident like myself, and a fantastic coach. I didn’t want…

Last year I went to a casino for the very first time, my buddy took me after I admitted to him that I had never been and I had an absolute whale of a time. The reason why I had never been in the past was probably though fear, they can be quite intimidating places after all. Thankfully my buddy decided to go with my and took me to the fantastic Bicycle Hotel and Casino in California. This place was incredible and it features one of the biggest casino floors in the country. From the moment I walked into the…

When I left school I didn’t have too many prospects and I sort of fell into a job which paid me alright, but never really made me happy. I genuinely thought that I’d be miserable for the rest of my life working in these types of jobs, and then I met up with an old school friend, Abhishek Gattani. Abhi began to tell me about how he was earning money online and actually making a living from doing it. I couldn’t resist asking him to show me how I too could earn money online and around 2 years ago I…

Indeed even when luck does play a key role in success, it is…

It is something that happens to many of us, you walk past the mirror or you are trying on clothes in a shop when you suddenly realize just how out of shape you really are.
