Upwardly mobile: Permanent homes or holiday treats - caravans are a chic investment

Upwardly mobile: Permanent homes or holiday treats - caravans are a chic investment: "
The Caravan Club, which counts Helen Mirren and Billie Piper among its members, reports that holiday bookings are up by 40 per cent compared with last summer."

This reminds me of the days when l was a child in Rhyl and South Wales in a caravan on a site that the wind swept around like a whirling dervish, especially when you need the public conveniences in the middle of the night. Oh how things have changed now it is chic and towing a caravan on your Ford Cortina up hill and down dale is now a pleasure with their 4 x 4`s and their designer caravans, with all mod cons. G

Follow these tips from our property expert to cash in on the crash

Follow these tips from our property expert to cash in on the crash: "
The student property sector is ripe for growth. Student numbers have grown more than 30 per cent in four years and are set to exceed three million by 2014."

So the future is to cash in on our younger generation by renting them sub-standard property, as l have seen in many areas of this country while still lining the pockets of un-scrupulous landlords. I do not think so and l will make sure that anyone renting from our property and management team will receive an honest and fair arrangement. G

Thousands could soon lose homes in 'second wave' of repossessions

Thousands could soon lose homes in 'second wave' of repossessions: "
Repossessions between April and June were 10 per cent lower than the previous three months. However, this is still 14 per cent higher than a year ago."

This is the cracks showing in what we are told and what is the real truth, but our government want us to believe like France and Germany we have come out of recession, Really ?

As was the first wave from America it took a while for the real affect of the lenders providing funding to anyone who could tie his/her shoelaces, without any good financial management. Our organisation will not provide anybody with money not even a balance transfer through reputable sources at best rates, unless they receive good financial advice on how to manage their finances. We would rather say sorry unable to help if we are leading people further into debt.

My reputation and the reputation of our organisation is more important than making money. G

Estate agents accused of over- pricing HIPs by up to 50%

Estate agents accused of over- pricing HIPs by up to 50%: "
Some firms charge 50 per cent more to compile a pack than a specialist provider, according to a report by Which? today."

This is another example of people being charged more for a service that costs less because the housing market is falling and estate agents are hiking prices to enable them to keep their life styles in tact. Once again people suffer at the hands of what should be good services, l will no longer accept this and will provide services at the right price for the right products fit for purpose.

Anyone of like mind contact me and we will promote your goods and services but only honest businesses need apply. G

Top ten mortgage lenders slash spending by nearly a fifth

Top ten mortgage lenders slash spending by nearly a fifth: "
They reduced their loans by a total of £50billion as the credit crunch ravaged their finances and property prices tumbled."

This tells us how bankers take peoples taxes and use them for bigger bonuses then slash their lending to enable them to survive, while small businesses go to the wall. G

Greenpeace Award Designers and Promote The Age of Stupid

Greenpeace Award Designers and Promote The Age of Stupid: "Greenpeace design awards winner photo

“Historically posters have been inextricably linked with cause-related campaigns. Visually striking, often iconic and frequently iconoclastic, posters grab the attention like no other medium. They effectively help spread a succinct message and in doing so shift attitudes and contribute to significant changes within society.” That’s the view of Greenpeace Australia Pacific who recently awarded a winner in the Greenpeace Design Awards.

And it seems the winner, out of 1,500 creative entries from 77 countries, did stick to the brief, ...Read the full story on TreeHugger

American Superconductor gets order for 17 wind-turbine systems from Hyundai Heavy Industries

American Superconductor gets order for 17 wind-turbine systems from Hyundai Heavy Industries: "AMSC receives order for 17 wind-turbine systems
DEVENS, Mass. ? American Superconductor Corp. said Tuesday it received an order for 17 sets of full wind-turbine electrical systems from South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries Co.

Hyundai, which builds ships, turnkey power plants and high-voltage electrical equipment, will use the systems in 1.65 megawatt wind turbines. It will produce [...]"

This is a simple example of a small order and from " small acorns big apples grow " with perseverance and work, providing it is for the right reason, keep up the good work. We call Britain and America great but it takes a South Korean Company to show us the way. G

Vestas expands turbine manufacturing in China and US as UK demand collapses

Vestas expands turbine manufacturing in China and US as UK demand collapses: "

Vestas chief says wind power industry is showing signs of recovery, and blames nimbyism for blocking projects in Britain

Vestas, which laid off 425 workers when it closed its Isle of Wight factory last month, has hired almost 4,000 extra workers for its new factories in China and the US in the past year, the wind turbine manufacturer has said.

The Danish-based company also said that the wind power industry is showing signs of recovery after being paralysed by the effects of the credit crunch.

The chief executive, Ditlev Engel, said that banks had begun lending to windfarm developers again and that the firm had seen an increase in orders in the past month.

Profits for the three months to the end of the June were still down by 15%, in large part because of redundancy payments it made to the 425 workers in the UK and the 1,142 workers it laid off in Denmark.

Vestas has said that it closed factories in the UK and Denmark because of excess manufacturing capacity in northern Europe as the credit crunch and economic slowdown cut growth in new windfarm projects. It said that not enough windfarms were being built in the UK to justify basing a plant there, blaming local politicians and nimbyism for blocking projects.

Vestas made a pre-tax profit of €78m (£67m) in the three months to June, a fall of 15% on the previous year.

"This remarkable turn of events amazes me when we close a wind turbine factory because of nimbyism and the fact it is more important to have a good view from their bedroom window, than to save the worlds resources. I was watching a programme the other day on the TV and a manufacturer in Spain told a similar story, but this time he said the banks and lenders were against me and l was laying off people all the time to survive.

But l decided to do it my own way and back my hunches and provide work for just the few people l have left in my company, that was back in 1999 he know employs over 500 and has contracts all over Spain and other countries.

So when do the banks and lenders in this country start to provide subsidised grant aid to small sunrise companies and lay down new planning regulations to prevent people wanting to build an extension to their home getting priority over our future energy needs. Or are the energy companies and their lobbyists much stronger and will money always talk, or will enough people stand up and be counted.

Well what is your views on this subject ? G

By the way a great article well written and presented from the Guardian and its reporter.

World's first mass-produced electric car will hit roads by 2011

World's first mass-produced electric car will hit roads by 2011: "

Renault developing three models for sale in Denmark and Israel

The company behind plans to roll out the first generation of mass-produced electric cars in the world has announced that it will roll out tens of thousands of vehicles by 2011.

Better Place which will run the scheme with Renault are planning to market around 160,000 cars annually by 2011 in Denmark and Israel.

The car maker is developing three models: a sedan, a compact city car and a panel van. In Denmark, a car will cost up to 200,000 kroner (£23,080) to buy.

'Around 160,000 electric cars will be made available every year. I believe the [annual] sales will be in the tens of thousands,' said Jens Moberg, the chief executive of Better Place Denmark, the Danish subsidiary of the transport company developing the lithium batteries fitted in the vehicles.

Electric car drivers will need to sign up for a monthly subscription with Better Place to get access to the batteries. 'It will be like signing up for a mobile phone contract,' said Moberg.

He declined to say how much a subscription would cost, but said that the 250-watt battery would cost €8,000 (£6,870) to manufacture in 2011-2012. 'I expect the cost to come down afterwards as production expands,' he said.

Drivers can recharge the batteries at home, which would take several hours, or switch batteries at a swap station, taking three to five minutes — less time than it takes to fill a petrol tank.

In Denmark, close to 100 battery swap stations will be available around the country, progressively expanding in the following years. 'Over time there will be less than 1,000 stations,' said Moberg.

Drivers will also be able to top up their batteries at charge spots installed at car parks and on the streets. The city of Copenhagen is working on plans to install such spots, with between 50 and 60 charge spots to be made available by the time of the UN's climate change summit in December, when world leaders will attempt to broker a worldwide deal to reduce carbon emissions.

A number of electric Renault cars will also be available to drive during the conference. Those trying out the cars won't have to worry about parking, as it is already free to park an electric car anywhere in Copenhagen.

Moberg said Better Place was in discussion with a number of European countries, including France, about expanding the scheme further from Israel and Denmark.
