The last few years have seen electric cars go from being something niche to being genuine challengers to traditional combustion engine vehicles. This piece looks how that will continue into the future, as electric cars are predicted to surpass sales of 400 million vehicles by 2040. By this point they are also predicted to account for over a third of all new car sales.
“By observing the sky, weather was predicted. Cloud formations indicated wind direction. Now it is different. First they form on a way, then they quickly change telling you another story (…) I don’t know everything. But I really notice and observe changes occurring in the atmosphere.”

I have always liked giving functional presents for these holiday season as well as for birthdays. And most of the years I make some time to create the gifts myself, maybe is only the wrapping (not that I create the gift per se) but something that makes it unique and more personalised. I have collected some ideas, a few but quite not so common, that I hope they inspire you.

The season for major gifts is coming, we are less than a month away for Christmas and New Year. Here are some ideas to wrap your presents in an unique way but also reusing materials we usually could throw away. Hope you find them inspirational, I bet you will not need to buy old common paper and ribbons to wrap your presents again!
Maybe you’ve seen those “BPA-Free” stickers on plastic water bottles before. Having them labeled that way makes it seem like a dangerous chemical, but you can find BPA in all sorts of things: DVDs, shatter-resistant eyeglasses, baby bottles… it’s even in resin that lines some cans of food, and in thermal paper receipts that you get at the store.
This week I’ve been in a crafty mood. I made my own recycled paper (more like cardboard 😂) to send some Christmas handmade cards for my penpals and friends reusing scraps from materials I had (below each photo I leave you the link to where I got the idea from with the tutorial). I’m not the great crafter, but I like how rustic these cards look thanks to the materials I used (and my clumsiness 😛 ). Also, they are easy and may be a fun activity to make with kids.
When something goes wrong in the bathroom or under the kitchen sink, it normally causes home owners to freak out and call a plumber. However, did you know that some of the most common faults that occur are easily fixable, even if you have little or no DIY experience?
Take the standard leaky tap as an example. I bet you didn’t know that all you need is a couple new washers and a screwdriver to sort the problem. We’ll show you how.
Or how about that pesky running toilet. All you need to do is a bit of tweaking here and there and do a few checks.
Perhaps most importantly, if you called for a plumber to fix these easy to fix faults, it could cost you upwards of £50! So read on and find more helpful tips and tricks for solving common plumbing problems and save a bit a cash in the process.
