Sunlight lowers Blood Pressure; could this be a boost for the Travel Industry?

Image
Ever since Coco Channel returned from holiday sporting a bronze Suntan some decades ago the Travel Industry has blossomed into the worlds greatest industry, which every country and region seeks to capitalize on.
In recent times however sun-tanning has been linked to cancer and it's becoming somewhat unfashionable partly due to health reasons. However, this could all change now, as Scientists weigh up the benefits of sunlight as opposed to the dangers. The balance is tipping!

The trouble with Science is that today's knowledge will be proved wrong by new knowledge tomorrow in ever increasing circles of knowledge. Researches at the University of Edinburgh have now found that exposure to ultraviolet light actually lowers our blood pressure.

It's commonly known that high blood pressure is one of the main risk factors in heart disease and stroke. Approximately a third of the population on earth suffer from this.

According to scientists, UV rays in sunlight cause nitrogen s…

The 10 best treks in the world!

Image
These 10 classic treks are for serious walkers. All of them require a sturdy pair of lungs, fit legs and a good amount of preparation. However, if you choose to go on any of these trails then you will be rewarded with experiences that last a lifetime. In no particular order:

1. GR20, France

This demanding 15- day (168km, 104mi) slog through Corsica is legendary for the diversity of landscapes it traverses. There are forests, granite moonscapes, windswept craters, glacial lakes, torrents, peat bogs, maquis, snow-capped peaks, plains and névés (stretches of ice formed from snow). But it doesn’t come easy: the path is rocky and sometimes steep, and includes rickety bridges and slippery rock faces – all part of the fun. Created in 1972, the GR20 links Calenzana, in the Balagne, with Conca, north of Porto Vecchio.
2. Inca Trail, Peru

This 33km (20mi) ancient trail was laid by the Incas and is currently traversed by thousands each year. The trail leads from the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu …

Emirates Airline announce a Triple Decker Aircraft with a Swimming Pool and Park

Image
As an avid Perpetual Traveller you may have seen a post from Emirates which went viral at one point, that the airline unveiled plans for the world’s largest commercial aircraft. The so called Triple-Decker named APR001 apparently featured a swimming pool, games room, gym and park.

This aroused great interest and Emirates seemingly once again hit the headlines with a new innovation! Future passengers started to visualize leaving their seats and going for a leisurely swim in their on-board swimming pool facility. Alternatively, even a spot of fun at the games room.

Fact or Fiction

Before anyone gets carried away, it's important to check the date of the post on the calendar. The announcement by Emirates was actually posted on 1st April 2017, with the aircraft carrying the same dateline. Emirates hilariously posted the above/below images on the Social Media of its new facilities on board the futuristic and in fact imaginary aircraft "Triple-Decker APR001". In posts on Twi…

A History of more than 4000 years of Taxes, when will we ever learn!

Image
Once upon a time In the early days of so called Human Civilization the Tax base succumbed to an extortionately high intolerable level, which in fact was in the 100% Tax bracket. Not surprisingly the people dominated by it were called “Slaves”. The masters that the Slaves worked for, were the original founding Tax collectors who comprised of various types of Nobles. The Nobles acted on behalf of and reported to the Kings that maintained a dedicated bloodline to keep the wealth and control of people in the family.

Alexander the Great
Then one day seemingly out of the blue to many at the time, came “Alexander the Great”, leader of the mighty Macedon Army. “Low Tax Alex” as he was aptly known by many during this period in world history, proudly announced wide ranging Tax cuts for everybody that supported him without a the need to fight for the territory he desired to control. In reality this meant no more...

Put your Smartphone down - the EMF's are dangerous!

Image
The social and health impact on mobile phones today are many fold and it appears that we are nurturing a generation addicted to Smartphone usage, whereby the real consequences will not be fully known for another decade to come.


Ask yourself this crucial question: Do you control your Smartphone or does your Smartphone control you? If you hesitate, then the answer is the former. Just imagine for a moment, we now use our Smartphone with over a million Apps even at the dinner table, which is a real conversation and friendship killer. We use Smartphones to wake us up in the morning, control our finances, virtually manage our social life, support our business and store our memories through photos or videos.

The Mobile Industry has come a long way since the humble Ericsson or Nokia that was used primarily for phone calls. However, despite the convenience and ease of use, our health is at clear and constant risk:
