India has many home-made cars that are powered by bike engines and engines from other cars. However, most of them are not well-designed and look quite ordinary. Here is a car called Project SR made by a group of youngsters and looks like a Caterham roadster inspired design. The details like if this was a college project or individual project are not known. The video says that the car has been completely designed by the team and the fabrication was done from somewhere else. The video claims that even the chassis has been designed in-house and the car we see here is built on the third chassis. It is called the Prototype 1 and is powered by Ford EcoBoost 2.0-litre petrol engine. The body panels made are made up of fibre that gives it an extremely lightweight body. The body panels, headlamps, front radiator grille, shock absorbers all look from Caterham’s roadster design. It is quite possible that the youngsters imported a Caterham assembly kit and put in a new engine. However, we … [Read more...] about GORGEOUS Caterham-inspired sports car built by Indian students is powered by a 250 Bhp Ford engine [Video]
ONE topic I constantly return to here is the need to think right now about the lifestyle we want when we retire, and to take advice to be sure we're on track to achieve it.We're not good at planning ahead on our own – just to recap a couple of recent facts: the Association of British Insurers says only 1 in 5 of us (22 per cent) know what we are paying into our pensions. How can we know how much we'll have to live on, later on? We could be sleepwalking our way into ‘pensioner poverty'.Perhaps due to this lack of knowledge, in Northern Ireland we are bottom of the table in the UK for pension saving – less than half of us (46 per cent) are making adequate provision for our later years.Well, everybody's goals for retirement are different, but those fine people at ‘Which? Money' have just done some impressive research with 6,000 retired or retiring people, to give us an idea of how much various lifestyles currently cost.As a starting point, they say a good target is … [Read more...] about Will your retirement be ‘luxury’, ‘comfortable’ or just ‘essential’?
ONCE, retirement was straight forward. You built up a reasonable fund of money and bought an income for life through an annuity. It was guaranteed and you had a few choices to think of - a rising or flat income; guaranteed length of time after death; and spouse's or children's benefits were the key items to consider. Those days of guarantees have gone with the plummet in annuity rates. Annuity rates are currently 29 per cent below 2008 levels alone.Pensioners moved to protect their income by deferring taking an annuity and allowing their capital to be invested and grow a little longer before potentially buying an annuity at a later date. This plan benefits the pensioner as annuity rates increase with age.Many pensioners moved their pot of money to a product called income drawdown which allowed them to leave the capital invested, but take a smaller ‘income' which came from their remaining pot.You can also take 25 per cent of the pot of money as a tax free cash lump sum if you are … [Read more...] about How much can I withdraw from my pension?
LIKE many an unpublished hopeful, Derry writer Claire Allan used to devour the novels of best-selling author Marian Keyes while dreaming of writing her own one day. That dream might never have been realised had Allan, now the author of nine books, not been inspired by her dear friend and mentor, journalist Siobhan McEleney, who died in 2005. The former highly respected deputy editor of the Derry Journal took Allan under her wing when she went to her local newspaper for work experience at age 16 and then as her editor and colleague when they worked together as journalists for 17 years. "Siobhan and I used to talk books all the time at work and always wanted me to write a book in a Marian Keyes style," Allan recalls. "Then early in 2005, Siobhan took ill around the time when I had my first child. We very quickly learnt it was a brain tumour and it was terminal. She was such a wonderful person and the mother of four daughters – it was just absolutely devastating. "Before she died, … [Read more...] about Writer Claire Allan: Going dark for my first thriller was really exhilarating

HE LOOKS like butter wouldn't melt but it seems that Gary Barlow is in fact environmentalists' worst nightmare. Gary has provoked their ire by firing plastic confetti from cannons at a concert in the Eden Project in Cornwall. Tiny bits of plastic raining down on the Eden Project. Lol. It's akin to chucking chunks of offal at vegetarians. He might as well have filled a PSNI water cannon with acid rain and turned it on one of the Eden Project biomes. Twitter user CornwallAgainstSUplastic (SU stands for single use) got straight on to Gary about it. "I was appalled to see plastic confetti littering the Eden project after your last gig there," he tweeted. "What on earth was a plastic confetti canon [sic] doing there? In a place such as the Eden who are working so hard at getting rid of SU plastics." Another angry person tweeted: "Wonder how long it will be before it's made its way to the sea and we're picking it up @GaryBarlow. Come on it's not really rocket science." Ironically the Eden … [Read more...] about Sleb Safari: Gary Barlow’s confetti cannons cause chaos
