The upper echelon of the luxury car market hardly ever leaves any expensive stone unturned. Exclusive autos created by the likes of Christian Von Koenigsegg and Horacio Pagani can easily be optioned to a million dollars and up, and with the average Bugatti Chiron costing around $3 million, it doesn’t seem like there would be much headroom for anyone to go higher—except for Rolls-Royce. A new one-off coupe that the automaker has been developing for a customer since 2013 is near completion, and it’s believed to cost upwards of $12 million dollars. This is the ultra-rare Rolls-Royce Sweptail.
Clark Howard warns customers away from AT&T/DirecTV
If there’s one thing money expert Clark Howard hates, it’s what he calls “customer no-service.”
You’ve heard of customer service, right?
Well, what happens when a company incorrectly bills its customers, fails to honor promotions and won’t provide any meaningful resolution for thousands of customers who complain?
All of those alleged infractions would be considered prime examples of customer no-service, that’s what!

CBSNews report: AT&T and DirecTV offer customer no-service
CBSNews.com did some digging and has uncovered what appears to be a systemic problem with AT&T and DirecTV customer service.
According to CBS, one customer they spoke with signed up for a bundle of Internet and TV with AT&T and its newly acquired satellite service DirecTV in July 2016. Collectively, the two services were supposed to cost around $100 a month.
But the customer’s first bill was nearly twice as much and AT&T has been no help in fixing the problem. The customer continues to pay well above what he agreed to and its now 10 months later!
That’s just one example CBS cites of an alleged pattern in which AT&T and DirecTV do not honor their own promotions. In fact, the news network found thousands of similar complaints.
That prompted money expert Clark Howard to get in touch with AT&T and DirecTV to get to the bottom of what’s going on. Continu reading

This is one of those things very difficult to understand. I do not seem to understand what is Russia is trying to achieve by trying to save a dictator in power who has brought war to his people and the destruction of his country. This war if I understand is a direct result from Syria getting involved on the war in Iraq. During that war President Bashar got involved by letting the so call terrorists thru his country to go attack the US coalition in Iraq after the war they find themselves in a 7 to 8 years war with no end in sight. All it will take to end the war is to get rid of Bashar and that will resolve a lot of problem probably even stop the war , the people suffering a destruction of a country with no end. Then you ask yourself what is Russia is gaining by trying to protect Bashar? selling of arms oil ? or just trying to stand against the US and it coalition to show how tough they are while a country is being destroyed? What is it is their cause of protecting Bashar. I do not understand it. it is one man one job that can save a destruction of a country we are talking here. What is wrong with this world that people cannot think and act like humain being with brain. It is so hard to understand this world. One thing remain true this is not going to end by Russian telling the US this is not acceptable . It may end By letting Bashar go however. It is That difficult to understand. Do you have to be a rocket scientist to understand that? It will drag on and on while Syria is being destroyed For What? to save Bashar? are you kidding me? Stop the Got dame war and save innocent people and a country. Continu reading

It will make more sense for Los Angeles Olympic ready with all the venues almost build and ready to go free of mega expenses with money to save and money to make to go first for 2024 and Paris with so much to spend to built time needed for what is not there to go For Olympic 2028 Instead. But I am not the one to make that decision as it belong to the IOC . To me that is common sense. But Let see what the IOC have to say. I am sorry Laurent Garros and The Park de Prince is Simply not going to do it. they are going to need a lot more than that plus The Ethel Tower is not an Olympic venue that is a touristic area so in reality that is simply show Boating. What Happened after the Olympic remove everything what a waste .read More
New renderings for the Fashion District’s City Market project have surfaced, thanks to a presentation given this week to the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council’s Planning and Land Use Committee.
The massive and transformative development would spread across a nearly 10-acre site roughly bordered by Ninth, San Pedro, 12th, and San Julian streets, with two additional sections off San Julian.
The project site, formerly a produce market, would eventually be home to a host of new buildings ranging from three stories tall to 38 stories, along with open space both private and public. A 25-year build-out for the multi-phase project is projected.
Designs by HansonLA offer a glimpse of the expansive planned development. Continue reading
