Experiencing a socially distant football game from the cheap seats

— It is hard to believe just how small a crowd of 16,500 can look in an area capable of being filled by more than 70,000 people.

With press box seating limited, the decision was made to watch Arkansas’ season opener from the stands. The top row on the west side was the perfect place to observe both Georgia 37, Arkansas 10, and the sun spash off the foothills of the Ozarks on a beautiful fall afternoon.

The walk to the stadium began about 45 minutes prior to kickoff. The lack of foot and vehicle traffic was striking. Standing in intersections that would normally be bustling so close to game time, police officers casually waved through much lower volumes of cars and pedestrians.

It was the first sign of a unique game-day experience.

With the aroma of food and sounds of music

The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Workspaces

Big buildings move slowly

It is a truth universally acknowledged that artificial intelligence will change everything. In the next few decades, the world will become intelligible, and in many ways, intelligent. But insiders suggest that the world of big office real estate will get there more slowly – at least in the world’s major cities.

The real estate industry in London, New York, Hong Kong and other world cities moves in cycles of 10 or 15 years. This is the period of the lease. After a tense renewal negotiation, and perhaps a big row, landlord and tenant are generally happy to leave each other alone until the next time. This does not encourage innovation, or investment in new services in between the renewals. There are alternatives to this arrangement. In Scandinavia, for instance, lease durations are shorter – often three years or so. This

State’s plan to up electric cars uptake by 5pc

Does charging station for an electric car in your neighbourhood appear too futuristic? Perhaps not.

Real estate developers could within five years be required to incorporate car charging stations in their new projects. This is as the new technology starts picking up, with the State trying to foster adoption of the less polluting vehicles.

In a new strategy meant to boost uptake of electric cars in the next five years, the Ministry of Energy has ordered all new buildings, including those owned by the State, to incorporate charging stations.

The Ministry said between now and 2025, it plans to increase the number of electric vehicle imports to account for five per cent of the total number of vehicles registered in the country.

This would mean

Gold Coast mansion a bargain at $12m

IT IS not often you can walk away from a $12 million property deal thinking you have snagged yourself a bargain.

But that is exactly how one shrewd investor is feeling after securing a newly built three-level waterfront mansion on Anchorage Tce at Sanctuary Cove on the Gold Coast.

Take a tour of Brisbane & Queensland’s most expensive homes

Costing $17 million to build, the five-bedroom home featuring seven bathrooms, nine formal and informal living areas, parking for 12 cars and a home cinema was a relative steal at $12 million.

The property has been listed for sale with different agents since last September before being sold through Matt Gates, of Ray White Sanctuary Cove.

$12 million - 5685 Anchorage Terrace, Sanctuary Cove - Five-bedroom, waterfront.

Surely Someone Needs a 3,000-Mile 1992 Ford Mustang 5.0 Convertible With a Manual

Dive into the storage closet and dust off that neon-colored windbreaker. Auto Hunter is currently hosting an online auction for this museum-quality 1992 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 Summer Edition convertible with 3,000 miles on the clock.

This Fox Body Mustang is dressed in a limited-run appearance package that debuted mid-year in ’92, referred to as the Summer Edition. It features 16-inch Opal pearlescent white wheels that match the interior and power-assisted convertible top, complimenting the Vibrant red paint job and a rear wing that replaces the luggage rack. Apparently, less than 3,000 Summer Edition Mustangs were built in 1992, making it exceptionally rare; this one is even more so as it was optioned with a five-speed manual transmission. 

The Auto Hunter listing gives a Carfax report of the Mustang and shows that while it may not have driven many miles, it’s been transported across the

After Failing in Mobile, BlackBerry Wants to Conquer the Automotive World

While the Canadians are now working on another “modern” Android device with a QWERTY keyboard, the company is also trying to explore other markets, including the automotive one.

What BlackBerry wants to do is compete against the likes of Android and Linux to power the driving experience on electric vehicles, so most recently, it signed a deal with Desay SV Automotive to build the autonomous driving domain controller for the Xpeng P7 built by Xpeng Motors.

In other words, BlackBerry will bring in the necessary operating system, Desay will contribute with the automatic driving control unit, called IPU-03, and together they plan to offer a unique driving experience in the Chinese electric vehicle.

One of the best things about QNX is that it’s fully focused on security, something that has been part of BlackBerry’s DNA for many years already.

At a time when cars are getting smarter thanks to the

Car Insurance Guide – How to Get Cheaper Rates – Press Release

LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / September 27, 2020 / Compare-autoinsurance.org (https://compare-autoinsurance.org) has launched a new blog post that presents several methods to lower car insurance rates.

For more info and free quotes, visit https://compare-autoinsurance.org/how-to-make-car-insurance-rates-cheaper.

Car insurance companies determine the premium paid by a driver after analyzing multiple factors. Some of these factors are under the policyholder’s control and can help him get cheaper car insurance.

  • Adjust the deductibles. Drivers can increase the deductibles levels to lower the price of their insurance rate. In many cases, the premium rates drop as much as 30%. Policyholders should consider adjusting the deductibles to a level they can support if something bad happens.
  • Consider dropping medical payments coverage. If a policyholder already has health insurance, then he will not need the medical payments coverage. In most cases, the two policies overlap.
  • Policyholders should consider buying a cheaper car

These Are The Best Places To Save When Buying Used Cars

It’s always best to shop around before making a purchase.

The transaction price of a new car is well over $30,000, which is a big bill pill to swallow. Used car prices are creeping upward, too. Many automakers shut down production early in the coronavirus pandemic, limiting the supply of new cars. However, as prices rise, not all used car sellers are the same. Some offer better deals than others, and a new study from iSeeCars.com lays out which places offer the best prices.
