We came across this un-restored car when visiting friends in Cuba. These cars are a moving museum, part of Cuba’s cultural history and there is no way that they should be allowed to be exported out of the country. They are a tribute to the Cuban people and the inhumane blockade exacted on them by the United States.
Another photo of what started out as a beautiful clear winter’s day on Lac Leman in Switzerland. Here, one of the passenger ferries that ply the lake was underway to its next port of call. You can see more of our photography on our website, Junagarh Media.
This a photo we took in Vevey, Lac Leman, Switzerland. A strange sculpture in the shallow part of the lake. This giant fork sculpture was created by Jean-Pierre Zaugg and Georges Favre in 1995. They are both Swiss artists. From here, if you turn around you will see the food museum, the Alimentarium.
Money making trumps getting the best medicines to the right people. It never seems to change. TB is advancing but these medicines could help
Our cities our polluted, we are all being harmed by the people driving into them in their four wheel drives and Audi/BMW/VW etc etc etc. So no more private cars should be allowed, only buses, taxis, short term rental cars, bicycles, scooters, motorcycles and maybe even these could be like renting the Boris bikes. It would be better for our health and our journey times would be reduced. The Twizy
You can bend statistics whichever way you like but at sometime in your life and it won’t be long now you will be affected by climate change depending on where you live and how old you are. You can run but you can’t hide. Life may look good to you at the moment with that new car or A/C unit but there will be a price to pay and you won’t be able to afford it no matter how many Euros, Yen, Pounds or Dollars you have.

If Darwin was alive today there would be no need for him to go all the way to the Galapagos Islands to prove the origin of species. He could have written about it in the London Underground. Evolution in the Underground

The Palace of Westminster is in need of a major refurbishment that will cost billions of pounds and this creates a golden opportunity to move the UK government to Sheffield, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool or another suitable location. The effect of moving the UK government to a Northern city will be to create a true and lasting Northern powerhouse through the building of airport, rail and road infrastructure and the services needed to support them. It will create lasting employment in all sectors and through wealth creation will lead to a more financially balanced United Kingdom. The value of property will increase due to the additional movement or opening of embassies, consulates, think tanks, consultants, auditors, business and government agencies and other support organisations.
London will of course lose some of these organisations but with the Palace of Westminster renovated and converted for uses such as a History of the United Kingdom museum losses should be minimised. In fact London is and will increase as a very popular tourist destination. New York does not suffer because the government is in Washington. From the point of view of unifying the United Kingdom it will have the effect of making ordinary citizens feel for the first time that they matter as much as those who live in the South of the country.
See differences in unemployment rates, types of employment, property prices, facilities, opportunities, individual wealth etc between London and the South East and the rest of the of the United Kingdom.
Most corporations are by definition evil, intent on reducing their workforce through automation, squashing their suppliers on price. We won’t be surprized when jobs go to North Korea, Iran and Burma. They opt for no holds barred when regulation is light and of course it is in a hypocracy where the elected leave their posts to join said corporations. Expect much worse by 2030 when another 1.2 billion will be added to the workforce where work is no longer available and has been replaced. Poverty and mass movement of people, we have only just begun unless there is a real awakening in the masses.
