Vyšetrujú život školníka. Jeho tajomstvá zatriasli internetom!

Život v meste je ťažký.

Pre Darren Livingston a jeho troch bratov boli pripravení robiť skvelé veci napriek tomu, že prichádzali z malého mesta.

Ako najstaršia, Darrenova zodpovednosť za to bola cesta.

Bohužiaľ, nemohol nájsť lepšie pracovné príležitosti, pretože dokončil ani strednú školu.

“Bol som dlhodobo služobníkom, pretože som nemal žiadne schopnosti ani osvedčenia, v komunikácii som zlá a často som strach z davov,” povedal Darren, keď získal vrcholový realitný agent.

Darren hovorí, že je navždy vďačný svojmu priateľovi Jamesovi za to, že ho zaviedol do sveta nehnuteľností.

“(Nehnuteľnosti) nebol nikdy môj sen, ale milujem učenie a zlepšovanie svojho života,” povedal, keď ho James požiadal, aby sa k nemu pripojil v Toronte.

Darren bol okamžite vyvezený z komfortnej zóny. Uznal, že skoré štádiá stať sa realitným agentom boli ťažké kvôli jeho neschopnosti efektívne komunikovať so svojimi klientmi.

Ale okrem toho existovali ďalšie výzvy.

“Niekedy som nemal ani peniaze na plyn, bolo ťažké stretnúť sa s mojimi klientmi,” zasmial sa Darren.

Ale stále sa tlačil. Vzal večernú hodinu vo verejnej reči a podarilo sa mu zlepšiť svoje schopnosti v oblasti vytvárania sietí. Darren konečne dokázal s rozhodnosťou dosiahnuť úspech.

“Cesta bola a je ťažká, ale musel som ju prekonať, aby som uspel.”

On porovnal svoju cestu k tomu, aby sa stal vrcholným realitným agentom vo svojej spoločnosti na jazde na bicykli.

“Nemôžeš sa zastaviť, inak určite padneš, takže musíš pokračovať na koni.”

Pre tých, ktorí práve začali na trhu s nehnuteľnosťami, Darren radí; “Nevzdávajte sa, neznáte slabosti a posilňujte ich, tvrdo pracujte a dosiahnete aj svoje sny!”

Policajci otkrili školskog domara s uznemirujućim tajnim drugim životom!

Živjeti u gradu je teško.

Darren Livingston i njegova trojica braće bili su spremni napraviti velike stvari unatoč dolasku iz malog grada.

Kao najstarija, bila je Darrenova odgovornost za put.

Nažalost, nije mogao naći bolje mogućnosti za posao jer nije završio ni srednju školu.

“Bio sam stražar godinama, jer nisam imao nikakvih vještina ili certifikata, loše sam na komunikaciji i često sam prepala gomila”, rekao je Darren dok je dobio nagradu za najboljeg agenta za nekretnine.

Darren kaže da je zauvijek zahvalan svom prijatelju Jamesu, za uvođenje u svijet nekretnina.

“(Nekretnine) nikada nisam bio san, ali volim učiti i poboljšavati svoj život”, rekao je kad ga je James zamolio da mu se pridruži u Torontu.

Darren je odmah izveo iz njegove zone udobnosti. Prihvaćao je kako su rane faze postanja agenta za nekretnine bile teške zbog nemogućnosti učinkovite komunikacije s klijentima.

Ali bilo je više izazova osim toga.

“Ponekad nisam imao ni novca za plin, bilo je teško susresti se sa svojim klijentima”, smije se Darren.

Ali nastavio je gurati. Sudjelovao je u večernjim satima u javnom govoru i uspio poboljšati vještine umrežavanja. Darren je konačno uspio postići uspjeh s odlučnošću.

“Putovanje je bilo teško i teško, ali moralo sam ga prevladati kako bih uspjela.”

Usporedio je svoj put da postane vrhunski agent za nekretnine u svojoj tvrtki za vožnju biciklom.

“Ne možete se zaustaviti, inače ćete sigurno pasti. Dakle, morate nastaviti jahanje.”

Za one koji su upravo započeli na tržištu nekretnina, Darren savjetuje; “Nemojte odustati, znati svoje slabe točke i ojačati ih, naporno raditi i postići će i svoje snove!”

12 y/o boy loses fight with mom, steals her credit card & takes epic revenge

A 12-year-old Sydney boy stole his parents’ credit card, tricked his grandmother into giving him his passport and flew to Bali on his own after a family argument.

Keep quiet: can a silent retreat in Bali really soothe the soul?

The boy, given the pseudonym Drew by A Current Affair, was told he couldn’t go to Bali by his mother but managed to book himself flights (researching an airline that allowed 12-year-olds to fly unaccompanied) and a hotel room, and to depart the country unimpeded.

Telling his family he was going to school, he rode his razor scooter to his local train station, from where he travelled to the airport and, using a self-service check-in terminal, boarded a flight for Perth, then another for Indonesia, the Nine Network program reported.

He was only quizzed once, at Perth airport, when staff asked him for identification to prove he was over 12. Guardian Australia has independently confirmed the boy made the trip.

“They just asked for my student ID and passport to prove that I’m over 12 and that I’m in secondary school,” he told A Current Affair. “It was great because I wanted to go on an adventure.”

In Bali, he checked in to the All Seasons hotel, telling staff he was waiting for his sister to arrive.

After his school reported he was absent, his family scrambled to find out where he was. Discovering he was in Bali, his mother, Emma, flew there to collect him.

Emma said the boy doesn’t like hearing the word “no”.

“Shocked, disgusted, there’s no emotion to feel what we felt when we found he left overseas,” she told A Current Affair.

Gadis kampung disiasat jiran yg terkejut bila mengetahui kerjanya yg sebenar

Hidup di kota amat menyeksakan.

Bagi Zakiah dengan tiga adik beradiknya, mereka telah bersedia untuk mengharunginya walaupun datang dari pekan yang kecil.

Sebagai anak sulung, Zakiah berasa seperti dia terpaksa bertanggungjawab menunjuk ajar adiknya Zuri dan Zeti.

Tetapi anak perempuan Kuala Lipis ini tidak dapat mencari peluang pekerjaan yang lebih baik kerana kelayakan pendidikannya yang terhad.

Dia hanya dapat menyelesaikan pendidikannya hingga ke sekolah rendah.

“Dulu, saya bekerja di Singapura sebagai seorang pembersih saja. Saya tidak mempunyai sebarang kemahiran atau sijil pun. Saya teruk pada komunikasi, sering takut di kalangan orang ramai, “kata Zakiah sewaktu dia dinobatkan sebagai PropertyGuru Top Real Estate Agent baru-baru ini di anugerah MIEA National Real Estate Awards di Kuala Lumpur.

Zakiah sungguh menghargai kawannya Shukri, kerana memperkenalkan dia kepada dunia hartanah.

“Real estate ni bukan impian saya tetapi saya suka belajar dan menaik tarafkan hidup saya.” katanya bila Shukri memintanya menyertai beliau di Kuala Lumpur.

Zakiah dibawa keluar dari zon selesanya untuk memulakan perjalanan yang penuh dengan cabaran. Beliau mengakui bahawa peringkat awal adalah sukar kerana ketidakupayaannya untuk berkomunikasi dalam Bahasa Inggeris, terutamanya dengan pelanggan-pelanggannya yang datang dari Eropah atau Amerika Syarikat.

Memang susah mencari rezeki masa itu.

“Ada kalanya saya tiada duit untuk mengisi petrol untuk motosikal saya. It yang membuat saya susah bertemu dengan klient saya” Zakiah ketawa.

Tapi akhirnya Zakiah berjaya mencapai sukses dengan tekad.

Selepas bertahun-tahun berkhidmat sebagai ejen, Zakiah kini memiliki sebuah syarikat hartanah bernama Daya Setia Sdn Bhd.

“Perjalanan itu susah tetapi anda mesti menghadapinya.” Itulah nasihat terbaik yang diberi oleh pensyarah MIEA.

Beliau berkata bahawa perjalanannya menjadi top agen serupa menunggang basikal. Anda tidak boleh berhenti, kalau tidak anda pasti jatuh. Oleh itu, anda harus menunggang.

Bagi mereka yang baru bermula di pasaran hartanah, Zakiah menasihati bahawa; “Jangan berputus asa. Kenali titik lemah anda dan menguatkannya. Bekerja keras dan anda akan mencapai impian kamu juga!”

4-year-old ‘superhero’ on a mission to save homeless people

A 4-year-old boy in Birmingham, Alabama is saving the world one person at a time by handing out food and money to the local homeless community.

He’s pitched in to build a new homeless shelter, donating $5,000, Birmingham mayor Randall Woodfin posted on Facebook:

Austin Perine wears a red satin superhero cape that helps him work faster because “it blows in the wind,” the boy told CNN. He goes by the superhero name “President Austin” because he wants to become president of the United States.

When he visits with people on the streets, CNN reports, Austin Perine always wears his all-blue “work outfit,” complete with a T-shirt proudly displaying the hashtag #ShowLove in bold red letters.

Terance Perine, Austin’s father, told CBS News that his son was inspired to help the homeless after watching a show on Animal Planet where a panda left her cub alone.

When Austin asked what would happen to the baby panda, his dad told CBS News it appeared it would be “homeless for a while.” Austin asked him if people can be homeless too and wanted to meet a person living on the streets.

Terance Perine said that they went and bought food to hand out to some homeless people and it sparked something special in the boy. According to CNN, Austin Perine now spends his weekly allowance on food to give out to people on the street, to “show love” to the homeless.

Washington Redskins running back Samaje Perine is Austin’s cousin, according to the Washington Redskins website.

After Austin Perine’s story was featured on CBS News, Burger King stepped in to help, giving him $1,000 a month to spend on chicken sandwiches to hand out.

Church’s Chicken also stepped up to donate to Perine’s “#ShowLove” campaign.

Birmingham’s new homeless shelter is expected to open in late 2018.

Estonia To Become The World’s First Free Public Transport Nation

Tallinn, known for its digital government and successful tech startups, is often referred to as Europe’s innovation capital. Now celebrating five years of free public transport for all citizens, the government is planning to make Estonia the first free public transport nation. Allan Alaküla, Head of Tallinn European Union Office, shares some valuable insights for other cities.

Five years ago, citizens of Tallinn were asked in a referendum if free public transport should be realized. Why should citizens be involved in such political decisions?

“A decision for a long-term project should not only be taken by the current elected council, but it should be locked politically by asking for support from the public. Although a local referendum is not legally binding, the mandate from the popular vote is stronger than just from the council.”

How does this work out for the municipality?

“There’s no doubt that we not only cover the costs, but also come out with a surplus. We earned double as much as we have lost since introducing free public transport. We’re happy to see that so many people are motivated to register as residents in Tallinn to make use of free public transport.”

Who is profiting the most from free buses, trams and trains in Tallinn?

“A good thing is, of course, that it mostly appeals to people with lower to medium incomes. But free public transport also stimulates the mobility of higher-income groups. They are simply going out more often for entertainment, to restaurants, bars and cinemas. Therefore they consume local goods and services and are likely to spend more money, more often. In the end this makes local businesses thrive. It breathes new life into the city.”

What further actions is Tallinn taking to make the use of individual transport less attractive?

“Before introducing free public transport, the city center was crammed with cars. This situation has improved — also because we raised parking fees. When non-Tallinners leave their cars in a park-and-ride and check in to public transport on the same day, they can’t only use public transport for free, but also won’t be charged the parking fee. We noticed that people didn’t complain about high parking fees once we offered them a good alternative.”

What inspired the Estonian government to introduce free public transport all over the country?

“People in other parts of Estonia started to demand free public transport, too. In Wales, an experiment with free public transport is about to end in May, but has already been extended for another year. Taking this as an example, we would also like to remove the public transport ticketing for all rural connections in Estonia.”

What advice would you give to other European cities that are hesitant to implement free transport?

“Tallinn’s approach is not a universal solution for all and for some it might be too extreme. We know examples of cities in Poland, Germany and France that already realized free public transport or are considering it. But we’re also seeing plenty of partially free public transport ideas are being executed, ranging from free weekend rides and lower fares in off-peak hours to free public transport for the retired and students. Municipalities should be brave to use their city as a testing ground to find out what system is realistic for them to implement.”

Which city will be the next to copy Tallinn’s successful system?

“Right now, Paris is considering the introduction of free public transport — mostly to reduce pollution in the city center. Once a city of this size and scale takes the step, other cities will inevitably follow. No doubt about that.”

The EU Green Week 2018 will explore ways in which the European Union is helping cities to become better places to live and work. In a special article series, Pop-Up City will highlight some of the most inspiring green developments from across the continent.

Turkish pilot saves 151 lives after making emergency landing in Jeddah.

A Turkish pilot saved the lives of 141 passengers and 10 crew aboard a Saudi Arabian Airlines flight by making an emergency landing in Jeddah late Monday.

The Airbus A330-200 controlled by pilot Ümit Atlat?rlar was heading to the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka from Medina, reports said.

The aircraft was reportedly leased from Turkey’s Onur Air.

The pilot successfully made the landing and kept the aircraft on the runway, allowing the evacuation of passengers and crew.

He circled around Jeddah for around three hours before making two low passes and finally made the landing with the nose gear retracted, reports said.

No injuries have been reported but the aircraft suffered significant damage.

In a statement, Onur Air said that the aircraft sustained a hydraulics malfunction due to an unknown cause.

The statement noted that the pilot successfully landed the plane by following crash-landing procedures in coordination with the Flight Operation Directorate, saving the lives of 151 people onboard the plane.

Both Onur Air and Saudi Arabian officials are investigating whether the accident was caused by outside factors.

Footage posted on social media showed flames coming from the nose of the aircraft after making the emergency landing.

Over 10,000 endangered tortoises are rescued in Madagascar

International conservationists in Madagascar have been treating more than 10,000 critically endangered radiated tortoises that were seized from traffickers who crammed the creatures into a home with no access to food or water.
The Turtle Survival Alliance and other groups are caring for the tortoises at a wildlife facility in the Ifaty region of the Indian Ocean nation, although hundreds have died from illness and dehydration.
The alliance says police found the radiated tortoises at a home in Toliara on April 10. The group said the amphibians native to southern Madagascar likely had been collected for the illegal pet trade, with Asia possibly the intended market.
Radiated tortoises are coveted for the star pattern on their shells.
Most of the surviving tortoises appear fairly healthy, said Susie Bartlett, a veterinarian with the Wildlife Conservation Society based at the Bronx Zoo. In an email, Bartlett described the challenges of working with the huge number of tortoises.
Each morning, ill tortoises that are under veterinary care are collected from their enclosures and brought to the clinic in large tubs and pans, Bartlett wrote. Sick animals are given subcutaneous fluids to rehydrate them and antibiotics if needed, along with vitamin supplementation. This is easily done with the sick tortoises that do not have much strength to retract their heads and legs.
However, as tortoises get stronger it gets more difficult to extend a leg out of a shell to find a fold of skin for an injection, according to Bartlett. Some of the rescued animals have eye and mouth infections and are given pain medicine.
Conservationists from zoos in the United States the Bronx Zoo, Zoo Knoxville in Tennessee, Hogle Zoo in Utah, Dallas Zoo and Oklahoma City Zoo are participating in the rescue. About 1,500 radiated tortoises deemed to be healthy have been moved to other facilities in Madagascar.
Radiated tortoises used to be found along roadways in the dry, spiny forests of south and southwest Madagascar. Poaching and habitat loss have taken a heavy toll, according to a red list of threatened species compiled by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. The list says Asian smugglers are known to collect the tortoises and that tortoise meat is popular among some people in Madagascar.

Alaska Airlines says ‘so long’ to non-recyclable plastic straws

Alaska Airlines passengers will soon notice something different when they order in-flight cocktails or coffees.
No, the airline’s not changing a crucial ingredient. But those plastic stirring sticks? They’re about to go the way of paper tickets and empty middle seats.
Alaska Airlines will phase out plastic stirring sticks in favor of compostable versions made of white birch. Citrus picks will switch from plastic to bamboo.
It’s all in the name of the environment, swapping out the single-use plastic sticks for a more sustainable option. The changes begin July 16, when Alaska starts phasing out the plastic items from its flights and frequent-flier lounges.  
Though some global airlines have pledged to gradually reduce the use of such items, Alaska Airlines says its move will make it the first in the U.S. to eliminate them altogether.
“Plastic is a serious issue for our planet. What’s important is continuing to move the global supply chain toward making sustainable materials accessible and affordable,” Shaunta Hyde, Alaska Airlines’ managing director – community relations, says in a statement to USA TODAY’s Today in the Sky blog.

Indeed, concern has been growing regarding the effect of plastic on the environment. Single-use plastic items – such as the straws and citrus picks Alaska Airlines is set to replace – have drawn particular scrutiny by environmental groups.
In a statement detailing the change, Alaska Airlines says “plastic straws are of special concern because they cannot be recycled, and they’ve been shown to kill birds and other marine life.”
After handing out a combined 22 million plastic stir straws and citrus picks on its flights and in its frequent-flier lounges in 2017, Alaska Airlines hopes its shift to sustainable versions will make a difference.
“I imagine this will make a big difference,” Hyde says about Alaska’s decision to shift to sustainable versions of the items. “They are a very real wood alternative, and quite nice.”

Alaska Airlines also says it will introduce non-plastic, marine-friendly drinking straws for customers requesting them. Hyde says Alaska has not yet selected a compostable alternative yet for those but says “we will be using a product that is marine-friendly.”
More broadly, Alaska Airlines says the change is part of its overall goal to reduce its in-flight waste per passenger going to landfills by 70% by 2020.
Among the environmentally-focused changes already in place at the Seattle-based carrier: bottled beer has been replaced with aluminum cans, which are lighter and easier to recycle, according to the company. And a policy to refill plastic cups rather than requiring a new cup for every round of beverage service has recently been reintroduced.
For the effort with straws and citrus picks, Alaska Airlines has partnered with environmental group Lonely Whale, which has made “For A Strawless Ocean” one of its pillar campaigns.
“Plastic pollution is causing devastating marine life issues with plastic now found in the bellies of whales, turtles and more, including seabirds, of which 99% of all species are expected to have ingested plastic by the year 2050,” Lonely Whale executive director Dune Ives says to Today in the Sky. 
“The banning of single-use plastic beverage straws sets a new standard for the travel industry, and we couldn’t be happier that Alaska Airlines is the first U.S. airline to lead the charge,” Ives adds in the carrier’s media statement.

Dog Raises Ducklings After Mothers Death

Wing Commander John Butcher, Commanding Officer of 617 Squadron, left, jokes with Britain’s last surviving ‘Dambuster’, Squadron Leader George “Johnny” Johnson, during an event to mark the 75th anniversary of the ‘Dambusters’ raids, at RAF Coningsby. The Royal Air Force Battle of Britain Memorial Flight was hoping to fly one of the two remaining Avro Lancaster bombers over the Derwent and Ladybower reservoirs, but high winds prevented the aircraft from taking off. 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the formation of the RAF and the 75th anniversary of the 617 Squadron Dambusters operation. The Dambuster raids, or ”peration Chastise’ was an attack on German dams on 16-17 May 1943 by Royal Air Force No. 617 Squadron, using an innovative ‘bouncing bomb’, which skimmed on the surface of the reservoir before hitting the dam wall and exploding.
