Will we ever see this in America? Recently, walking down a street in London we saw this scene - the yellow cables are electricity cables for re-charging your electric car or bike. Not sure if there is some payment required or if this is done to encourage a greener way of travel, but we both found it very interesting. Got to wondering if we would ever see this in Philadelphia or any other major American city or its suburbs? Not sure of the distance this little car can go, but typical of size for most London cars. I know there are some condos recenlty built by Dranoff Properties that include parking slots with the ability to re-charge your car here in Philadelphia. What is happening in your city?

Yesterday I attended a fantastic presentation in Sydney called Aaron Shiner Live. Over 300 real estate agents enjoyed a powerful presentation by Aaron Shiner, a 29 year old agent from Sydneys western suburbs who is writing over a million dollars in fees consistently year after year in an area where the average fee is about $8,000. He must be doing something right, so I went along to find out and was not disappointed. If you want to find out more about Aaron then maybe you will want to have a look at his website http://aaronshinerlive.com/ I am sure glad I did.

  There is a HUGE Buzz roaming the United States and other countries across the World, such as … South East Asia – Myanmar, Thailand, China, etc. Countries like Europe, Canada, Mexico, South America, Australia and New Zealand are just a few more. Robert (Vegas Bob) Swetz has been receiving many emails from people interested in purchasing the (New Book) “Dark Side Of David”. Robert Swetz the author of DSOD is self publishing this book and is unsure if he is going to connect with Amazon Books because AB wants 55% of the book sales if I advertise with them. Self published books very seldom become BEST Sellers because of the promoting of the book. Well Robert Swetz has been plugging Dark Side of David for over one year now and people are very excited about DSOD being published and released ...

LONDON— Demonstrating that Chinese art isn't the only non-Western market sector coming out of the global economic crisis with a spring in its step, Sotheby’s two-day sale of Islamic art in London ended yesterday with a record-breaking total of £25.3 million ($40.3 million) — even though the combined sell-through rate for the overstuffed auctions was a mere 64 percent by lot. Wednesday's individual “Arts of the Islamic World” sale also set a new high-water mark for a single auction in the field, bringing in £18.3 million ($29 million), surpassing its high estimate by £1 million.   In that 378-lot sale, the top lot was a rare Nasrid ear dagger — so named because of the resemblance its distinctive pommel has to the human ear — from 15th-century Spain that inspired fierce telephone bidding...
