Last week I took a taxi from Kent Street Sydney to Qantas Domestic Terminal [ cheap not at $51.50 ] The train was not an option with 4 pieces of luggage.
My driver was a qualified architect , Australian citizen who had been in Sydney for 8 years - his adult sons had graduated Sydney universities some 5 years earlier. Why a taxi driver?? Well his training in Shanghai China is not recognised in Australia but if he was from Bangladesh it would have been [ ? ] His first choice of occupation in Sydney?? A Newsagent but they are a dying business as people get their news on line and their Lotto tickets - online!!
Some positive news for our taxi driver - his cab was a Toyota Camry Hybrid - fuel cost were once $50 a shift but they had dropped to just $15. He said one issue though was less places to buy fuel and also Uber charged much less than a taxi... I had read that Sydney cab drivers can agree a fare less than what is on the meter to compete with UBER. [ ooops I forgot to ask my cabbie to match UBER ]

|Is this a better alternative to more Terror Attacks??|
Have you noticed that London has dominated the news lately and NOT for all the right reasons...
Terror attacks on a London Bridge, Terror attacks in Manchester, Terror attacks at Borough Market and then just for a change, A 27 story high rise apartment complex engulfed in fire with lives lost... oops I forgot one... the General Election which ended in a hung Parliament which was against all odds which Mains Stream media predicted would be a 100 seat majority!!
what do all these things have in common Negative news... and to keep the TV God feed it is beamed constantly CNN... and the result??
In Australia the third television network Channel 10 slips in administration - we are getting sick of CNN and have finally turned off and the advertisers aren't paying anymore.
What abut facebook?? Most common activities are viewing family pictures [ POSITIVE ] cat videos [POSITIVE] How to videos[ POSITIVE and advertisers are flocking there.
My challenge to everyone - get with the POSITIVE program.
