In a continued showing of gross negligence in international construction, official reports from India this week announced that cost cutting measures circumvented many construction standards and safety protocols in order to cut construction costs. The same construction site under the supervision of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) that experienced the worst accident in its history on July 12 suffered another setback to rescue operations when the rescue cranes collapsed, injuring 5 workers.
The official report, announced by Saugata Roy, minister of state in India’s Ministry of Urban Development, revealed that in order to save money on the project, the construction company contracted to perform the work was also given the task of designing parts of the bridge. This presents not only a conflict of skills, but a conflict of interest; the construction company has it in their best interest to save as much money as possible on materials and construction. The construction company in question, Gammon India Ltd, maintains that costs were not cut and that all safety standards were followed to the letter. The question of the legitimacy of this claim is up for debate, however. During the first phase of construction for the Delhi Metro, the design was performed by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation and its consultants while construction was carried out by separate contractors. However, during the second phase the duties of construction and design were combined, creating a possibility for a serious construction site accident.
We all know that porn industry has grown rapidly throughout the years through many honest porn site reviews. With the passage of time the viewership for porn has increased considerably. The porn industry is not a new one; it has been in the market for years and owns a huge chunk of the market share.
In the year 2003, there were 1.3 million pornographic websites and about 260 million web pages. The total revenue from the porn industry in the same year was $57.0 billion worldwide. Out of this $12.0 billion was only of the US market. This was more than that of the combined revenues of all professional football, baseball and basketball franchises or the combined revenues of ABC, CBS, and NBC. This proves that the porn industry definitely one of the leading money spinners in the world. The counts of adult DVD rentals were around $1 billion in 2005. These stats are only of the US. This shows that United States is a major market for porn. At the same time hotel viewership for adult movies was around 55 percent.
Perhaps it is something to do with the credit crunch or perhaps it was so popular last year but Safari inspired clothes are in fashion again this spring/summer season.
The earthy, natural colours are perfect for “Softs”, which can blend different shades of the same colour to get the perfect look. Look out for sand, taupe, beige, cream, stone, coffee brown and chocolate. If you want to go wild, how about adding a bit of muted animal print?

What pops into your mind when you hear the word buzzworthy or even just buzz?
Well for starters, when I hear the word buzz on its own, I think of bees swarming around a hive full of honey. If I think a little further I get an image of a busy New York street, a mall full of people, or even a festival/parade. These things also bring me back to the image of the bees buzzing around a hive of honey, the only difference is that they’re people, and the honey is something that attracts them there.
Today, I spoke with Dr. Ken Gibson, Founder of LearningRx, and listened to quite a fascinating story of an entrepreneur. Ken was an Optometrist, with a strong interest in business, and at some point, provided business consulting to over 300 Optometrists, before developing the methodology for training people to learn that is now at the heart of LearningRx.
