DO YOU THINK YOU DO?
I bet you think you make the decisions over what you and your family eat and drink. I hope this article will make you think twice.
My first question is – where do you do your main shopping? The answer is usually the same. It’s one or other of the main supermarkets, whether it’s on-line or in their stores.
So if you think about it, you could only purchase items they have on their shelves (or website). This is the first limit placed on you from the start. Each supermarket carries out stock rotation. I’m not just talking about putting out fresh stock of the same line, but rotate the varieties they have for sale in their stores. For example, one store will carry out a specific item for a while, sometimes on a special offer, whilst other stores do not stock it. After a…

TOWER HAMLETS TRAVEL FOCUS GROUP FARCE
I today attended the Travel Focus Group for Tower Hamlets held at the Idea Store at Whitechapel, only to realise that these group meetings are only being held as a tick box event, to show that meetings with the public had been carried out.
The first milestone was the fact that as the venue’s lifts were too small to take my mobility scooter, so it had to be left in the enrtance to the venue, forcing me to walk and use the lift up to the 3rd floor!
Then the refreshments arrived, only after we had already started the meeting!
The meeting was constantly interupted by late arrivals.
As well as attendees being asked what problems they had in getting to this very central venue, the meeting really focused on only three main subjects, Cycling, Walking and Driving.
If I hadn’t brought up some…

ARE ALL BUS STOP CLOSURES NECESSARY?
Recently in my area there has been a TfL bus stop closed (Barnet Grove West Bound) for weeks now.
There is a small building site next to the stop, but there has been very little activity on the site to quantify total closure of this stop.
The biggest problems closure of this particular type of stop is to the elderly, pregnant ladies, and the disabled, many of whom use this stop, as the distance to the next one is quite a distance away.
I have noticed in the past that there are frequent bus stop closures in London for no apparent reason.
IS THIS THE TIP OF THE ICEBURG?
Do you have the same problem?
If you do suffer from unnecessarily closed bus stops, specially in London, please let me know using the contact form below.
Any personal information will not be passed on to anybody whatsoever.
I look forwards to the results.
Are University Lecturers Cutting Corners?
I have recently been speaking to a university student who was commenting that she was unhappy with the value for money she was receiving from her university lecturers.
It would appear that some lecturers are now preparing their lectures using systems like Powerpoint, but seem to be forgetting that the Powerpoint presentation systems are intended as an aid to lectures, not to replace it.
Those lecturers under question now seem to be giving lectures by reading out their Powerpoint presentation verbatim, and not embellishing or expanding on the contents.
Given how much our students are being charged for their University education, and how much they get into debt to pay for it, surely they are entitled to Lecturers actually earning their fees by adding their personal input into supplimenting the automated presentation given.
If lecturers continue to only read out their presentation verbatim, then there…
