  1. Yesterday
  2. Google maps is not showing speed on smaller roads. Noticed this last week in sweihan and now in qudra.
  3. Poor Steve gets so much flak for that one screw up
  4. About time. They are already overdue by a year as each generation usually lasts 10 years or less.
  5. There is a bigger problem AFAIK if you let a Tesla go completely dead then you are in deep shit and it's not a matter of just recharging your dead phone and it's up in no time.
  6. It's already having a tax before it was 1.50 then became 2.50 talking bout few and similar for energy drinks...

  13. The main thing they are targeting are the Red Bull’s and Mountain Dews of this world. The sugar tax was implemented in Mexico already where a 10% price increase brought a consumption decline of 7,6% on sugar drinks. UK implemented a gradual production tax, where the manufacturer pays more tax, if more than 5 gram per liter sugar is found in their products. This is good because it motivates the manufacturers to stay below that threshold. The funny thing is that the sugar tax has the most benefit for countries that provide social healthcare, because less obesities and less diabetes patients equals lower costs, same for cigarettes. In UAE however their motivation will be different 😁
  14. And being an active or heavy smoker you will walk 50 -100 meters every 1 hour.
  15. We’ll need to think bigger and think in solutions instead of problems. The population living in towers in big cities probably won’t need to own cars anymore in the future due to better and faster alternatives. The complete shift towards electric and hydrogen will happen in phases and will take time and investments. I see buildings being equipped with a charging port in every parking space. These ports are powered by standalone battery packs like Tesla is already producing, and the battery packs are charged by solar on the roof buildings. Imagine smart power grids that would make us 100% Independent from the city grids. The smart grid will be either owned by yourself if you made the investment, or leased by companies that will charge you per kWh used. Countries like UAE are fast to adopt and might invest in this soon (like the shams initiative for solar).
  16. I stand by my comment. Sitting on your ass all day watching tv and eating chips Oman and getting fat isn’t a medical condition. It’s being lazy. And the people who can afford to sit around and watch tv all day and not have to move while the maids do all the work, this tax won’t make any difference to them. It’s pointless.
  17. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obesity_in_the_Middle_East_and_North_Africa Obesity in the Middle East and North Africa Read in another language Watch this page Edit Obesity in North Africa and the Middle Eastis a notable health issue. In 2005, the World Health Organization measured that 1.6 billion people were overweight and 400 million were obese. It estimates that by the year 2015, 2.3 billion people will be overweight and 700 million will be obese.[1] The Middle East, including the Arabian Peninsula, Eastern Mediterranean, Turkey and Iran, and North Africa, are no exception to the worldwide increase in obesity. Subsequently, some call this trend the New World Syndrome.[2] The lifestyle changes associated with the discovery of oil and the subsequent increase in wealth is one contributing factor. Urbanization has occurred rapidly and has been accompanied by new technologies that promote sedentary lifestyles.[3] Due to accessibility of private cars, television, and household appliances, the population as a whole is engaging in less physical activity. The rise in caloric and fat intake in a region where exercise is not a defining part of the culture has added to the overall increased percentages of overweight and obese populations.[4] In addition, women are more likely to be overweight or obese due to cultural norms and perceptions of appropriate female behavior and occupations inside and outside of the home.[5]
  18. That’s exactly the whole discussion that’s going on at the moment with electric vehicles. You’re never 100% green with your electrical car until you are sure that the electricity needed to recharge it is coming from renewable sources like solar, hydro, or wind, and not from coal plants. On top of that the mining of rare earths will create a complete market shift and might make South America the new Middle East. cobalt, nickel, graphite, lithium... All these materials and the countries who possess them will be soon doing strategical investments to prepare for the future. The poorer countries that lack the investment power will probably find an investment partner in China, which will eventually result in China taking over that complete business if nobody stops them. https://www.google.ae/amp/s/theconversation.com/amp/politically-charged-do-you-know-where-your-batteries-come-from-80886 Exactly, on top of that you need 40amps according to Tesla, so a regular 16 or 20 amps outlet won’t do it, or will drastically increase charging time.
  19. Obesity From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to navigationJump to search For the medical journal, see Obesity (journal). Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to an extent that it may have a negative effect on health.[1] People are generally considered obese when their body mass index (BMI), a measurement obtained by dividing a person's weight by the square of the person's height, is over 30 kg/m2; the range 25–30 kg/m2 is defined as overweight.[1] Some East Asian countries use lower values.[8] Obesity increases the likelihood of various diseases and conditions, particularly cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, certain types of cancer, osteoarthritis, and depression.[2][3]
  20. Here is another problem. Unless you live in a villa, it’s difficult to get access to a 240v supply. The majority of people live in apartments in towers. What will the security say if everyone starts running extension wires down the lift shafts to charge their cars.
  21. Obesity is rarely a medical condition. It’s usually a lack of self control. I don’t eat much sugary stuff. I’ll maybe buy a bar of some nice chocolate and keep it in the fridge and eat it slowly over 9-10 days. Why should I pay more for my chocolate when these fatsos will just pay the tax and continue to get fat? Taxing sugar won’t make a difference. I’m a heavy smoker, I smoke 1-2 packs per day. When they introduced the smoking tax, it didn’t make a difference to me. Sure a pack of cigarettes costs twice as much but they’re still cheap. Try buying a packet of cigarettes in my country, you won’t have much change out of 50dhs, and that’s an every day habit.
  22. You can recharge your electric car with any electrical plug. It will take time but it will recharge. Specially in UAE cities are too close. Fully charged electric car making around 450km by today`s standards. Which mean if you are in the middle of Abu Dhabi and Dubai and if you are stupid enough to not check you electric gauge. I am sure that that car will warn you many red lights before electric is fully finished. You can enter any fuel station or restaurant and you can charge your car enough to reach next city in 2-3 hours( you will be already pass maybe 60-70km and you need to go other 60-70km which means you need %15 electric). This will happen once in a 10 year. Since i start driving 10 years past and i never face no fuel or no electric issue.
  23. The electricity to charge the cars is probably already coming fossil fuels. In my country we have a saying, you rob Peter to pay Paul. It basically means you’re a dog running around in circles trying to bite your own tail so you can eat something but you never achieve anything other than hurting yourself.
  24. Of course, eventually vicious circle have to be complete.
  25. The rules have changed. A sedan or SUV registered in company name can have a tiny. It's only the commercial vehicles like pickups, minivans etc that have the restriction
  26. And the funny thing is that these generators will be running on petrol or diesel 😂
