Electric vehicles can be less green than classic fuel cars, Norwegian study finds

Sunday, October 7, 2012 

A Norwegian University of Science and Technology study released Thursday found electric vehicles have a potential for higher eco-toxicity and greenhouse impact than conventional cars. The study includes an examination of the electric car’s life cycle as a whole rather than a study of the electric car’s environmental impact during the use phase.

The researchers conducted a comparison of the environmental impact of electric cars in view of different ratios of green-to-fuel electricity energy sources. In the case of mostly coal- or oil-based electricity supply, electric cars are disadvantageous compared to classic diesel cars with the greenhouse effect impact being up to two times larger.

The researchers found that in Europe, electric cars pose a “10% to 24% decrease in global warming potential (GWP) relative to conventional diesel or gasoline vehicles”.

The researchers suggest to improve eco-friendliness of electric vehicles by “reducing vehicle production supply chain impacts and promoting clean electricity sources in decision making regarding electricity infrastructure” and using the electric cars for a longer time, so that the use phase plays a more important role in the electric vehicle life cycle.

How To Get Best Hotel Deals

Submitted by: Nataliia Sukhitskiy

Booking on a hotel can be quite challenging especially if you re not knowledgeable about the ins and outs of making a transaction. Here s a lowdown on how to score the best hotel deals.

Plan your vacation ahead of time. If possible, try to book your vacation during off season or midweek where hotels usually offer a price markdown. You can call the hotel and ask for the exact days when will their off seasons start. You should also know when are the off season dates for your destination. Generally, beach and resort hotels have their peak season during the summer and spring.

Keep an eye for packages

Grab a cup of joe and start surfing the net for hotel packages. You can save from these deals because they usually offer free breakfast or even a full course meal if you avail their packages. Hotels would also come up with packages which offer big discounts if you wish to stay for an additional night or two. You should also inquire if they re giving discounts on senior citizens, children or group packages.

Try to know what the stars is all about

The general rule about hotels is that the more stars they have, the more expensive they are. If you wish to stay in a five star hotel but don t want to cause too much damage to your pocket consider asking for standard rooms instead of a deluxe or an executive suite. You get to live the lifestyle for less. Sometimes, the hotel manager would actually give you a free upgrade if you ask them. This is the reason why you should book hotels during the off season as more rooms are unoccupied. Go to the front desk and courteously ask for a free upgrade, all you have to do is ask and give a good feedback on their feedback forms and a nice tip afterwards.

Book hotels via online

The internet has truly made the world much easier for humans. You can access a vast amount of knowledge, communicate with friends and family, shop online and even book a hotel online. The internet will offer you a variety of hotels for you to choose from without having to read the advertisement on the newspapers and directories. Most sites would offer discounts and packages if you book your hotel online. Paying is also made easy as long as you have a credit card or a Paypal account. If you re a newbie on booking a hotel online, most sites would provide a step by step procedure on how to conduct a transaction with them.

Ask if the rooms have built in kitchenettes

If you would really score the best hotel deal without breaking the bank, you can ask the front desks if the room has kitchenettes for you to cook your own meal. You can save a lot if you ll do the Do-it-yourself meal instead of having their staff cook the meal for you. You ll not only save a couple dollars but you also get to personally pick the ingredients that you re going to use in your dish.

World’s most expensive hotel-casino opens in Las Vegas

Friday, April 29, 2005 

The world’s most expensive hotel-casino ever has opened in Las Vegas, Nevada. The casino, which was designed and built over a period of five years, cost US$2.7 billion to construct. The hotel stands nearly fifty stories above the Las Vegas valley, with a 180-foot tall mountain in front of the main entrance.

Numerous lavish touches contributed to the high expense of the development. The sign in front of the Wynn property has an unusual mechanical design, with a large piece containing the Wynn logo, which can move vertically up or down as different announcements are presented.

“I think it’s going to start a shift of power. It’s been the south for a long time. Things will start moving to the north because of Wynn Las Vegas, Sheldon Adelson with the expansion of the Venetian, the New Frontier — that whole area will become the new hot area of Las Vegas for the next decade or so,” gaming expert Anthony Curtis told Las Vegas KLAS TV.

As the property opened to the public, developer Steve Wynn greeted visitors at the front entrance.

“It’s always fascinating to watch people enter the thing and get their first moment after we open the doors,” Wynn told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Analysts are not too concerned about the cost of the Wynn development. Wynn paid off the cost of The Mirage hotel-casino in 18 months, much earlier than the planned seven years for which the debt had been scheduled for repayment.

“If you remember the opening of The Mirage in 1989, Wynn needed to make a nut of $1 million a day. Everyone thought he was nuts; ‘couldn’t be done,’ they all said,” Las Vegas history department Chairman Hal Rothman told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Wynn sold his interest in Mirage Resorts to MGM Grand (which became MGM Mirage and is now run by Kirk Kerkorian) for US$6.4 billion back in 2000, then turned around and purchased the property for the Wynn hotel-casino for US$275 million. The property was previously the home of the Desert Inn.

The hotel has 2,359 rooms, and a few hundred deluxe suites and “parlors” for high rollers. The casino has 1,960 slot machines and 137 table games on a 111,000 square foot casino floor. A Ferrari-Maserati dealership and the Le Reve stage show, featuring a million gallon water tank, round out the expensive offerings.

A round of golf will go for US$500 on the elaborate golf course located behind the main building.

All of these specifications add up to a record construction cost of over one million US dollars per room. Other expensive Las Vegas properties cost a fraction of the price, such as the Bellagio, which cost half the price at US$533,000 per room. The most expensive hotel property in the world was previously the Grand Wailea Resort in Maui, Hawaii, which cost US$775,000 per room.

“Yes, (Wynn) may be in over his head, but then he has found ways to survive before,” Las Vegas professor Bill Thompson told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Several of Wynn’s largest competitors spoke with admiration of the property and looked forward to its impact on Las Vegas.

“I’ve never understood the hand-wringing about something new, especially in Las Vegas and Atlantic City,” Harrah’s Chairman and CEO Gary Loveman told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Other casino bosses from the Mandalay and the MGM Mirage had positive comments as well, hoping to pick up some new business from the development.

“It’s a positive in terms of bringing more visitors,” Mandalay Resort Group President and CEO Glenn Schaeffer told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

“Steve will build a great property and bring new people to town. If we’re doing what we’re supposed to be doing, then we’ll pick up some of that business also,” MGM Mirage Chairman and CEO Terry Lanni told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Thousands of visitors gathered for hours in front of the property before it opened. Security guards had to monitor the number of visitors entering the building.

“I think it’s spectacular,” David Schwartz, coordinator of the Gaming Studies Research Center at the University of Nevada Las Vegas told Reuters.

“People were pushing and shoving,” Las Vegan Kathie Anderson told Associated Press.

“There is nobody in the world who creates such entertaining and beautiful casinos,” British billionaire Richard Branson told Associated Press from the casino floor. “I would say every other casino must be nervous. He’s lifted the bar dramatically,” Branson said.

“This would be hard to top,” Las Vegan Marlene DeMarco told Reuters.

Things To Consider For Hiring Removalists

Submitted by: Redx Transport

It s no secret that when it comes time to move, the stress builds and the entire process can seem overwhelmingly daunting. To combat the stress of going to a new place and the unpleasant nature of moving, it doesn t call for removing things and moving without helping hands. You know the value and importance of expensive items of your home, yet hiring professional removalists helps you get the job done not only quicker but also more efficiently.

A trustworthy and professional removalist can save your time and have your household things moved in timely and safe manner. Hiring a removalist, or mover, to pack up all of your things and bring them to your new house without much involvement on your end at all is not a daunting task if you know what to consider for hiring one.

Before you rush out to the phone book and find the first removalist in the listing, there are a few things you should consider to make sure your things arrive safely and your wallet isn t emptied out.

Many removalist companies aren t upfront about who s going to be moving your things come the day of the move. While you may have thought you ve found an excellent deal for the amount of furniture you re brining with you, you may not know that many removalist companies aren t actually the ones doing the moving of your home. A majority of the removalist companies often hire contractors and/or third parties to handle the moving portion of the business, with the removalist company just acting as the middleman between you and the real workers.

Problems arise when the removal companies hire lower quality contractors to subcontract your job and your things get put into the wrong hands. The moving workers do not know your priorities and the one who is aware of isn t doing the job. So, make sure that the removal company you choose doesn t pass the work on to other contractors that may end up damaging your priceless things.

And with the word damage, we move on to probably the most important aspect of hiring a removalist company, because you are trusting someone else with your belongings; it is very important to consider what could go wrong in the transit. Make sure that the removalists will give you boxes of different sizes to box up your things and includes the bubble wrap to protect expensive items.

If the removalists offer insurance for the move or you can find an independent insurance agent to insure your things while they re in the truck on their way to your new home, it is definitely a wise investment. If the moving truck gets in an accident or things shift on their way, it would be terrible not to have a backup plan to cover everything inside.

Finally, if you should be seeking the services of removalists and movers, make sure he is also the best around in terms of his pricing.
