  1. Any left turning vehicle should only cross the cycle lane when it's safe to do so. As already said, mirror signal manoeuvre, it's basic stuff. ---------- Post added 22-11-2015 at 22:55 ---------- Is a cyclist filtering through traffic if they are cycling in the cycle lane ?
  2. Are you sure it's not an increase of $150,000 million which would be $150 billion. Which when the top 85 are worth $2,200 billion give or take the odd billion. ( $2,200,000 million or just over 2 UK billion ) An increase of $150 billion sounds more realistic than 150,000 billion.
  3. That would be Russell Brand who enjoys his suites at the Savoy, butlers to help with the shopping, premium class travel, tax avoidance schemes to get funding for movies, say the words tax avoidance and starbucks and the usual suspects start frothing at the mouth and yet they take Brands word as gospel.
  4. Yes a good boss / business invests in there staff, treats them well, rewards them and makes them feel like they're important. So money can be one part of an overall package of things to make staff loyal to the business. Would you be loyal if the company you worked for treated you like a dogs body and made you feel like crap, maybe to the point it was effecting your health as long as they payed you a nice chunk of change each month. Money alone doesn't automatically equate to a more loyal member of staff it's only one possible part of an overall package of things.
  5. As the Beatles sang " Money can't buy you love " I'm in no way convinced at all that better pay = a more loyal employee. I'm sure money may play some part but me personally and I'm sure for many other people it's not just all about the money.
  6. Could Walmart afford to pay its staff a minimum of $15, yeah I'm sure it can. This would though add billions and billions of $ to its yearly payroll bill. Should it pay it's staff a minimum of $15 is a totally different matter. Walmart creates entry level jobs for people who don’t have a lot of skills, these jobs don’t and really shouldn't pay lots of money. People might see figures of X amount of billions in profit but Walmarts margins are quite small, I think the business has a profit margin of around 3.5 maybe 4%. Not a huge profit margin is it.
  7. So apart from a good rant on here, what have you done, like contract SCC to raise your concerns about this event coming to Sheffield to highlight how much distress and inconvenience you think it's going to cause. I think there will more people enjoying this event coming to sheffield than there will be people who are in a state of distress.
  8. Just found this. http://www.derbyshire.gov.uk/community/tour_de_france_coasting_into_derbyshire_2014/road_closures/default.asp Says Woodhead from Tintwistle all the way to the turn off for Midhopestones is closed from just after Midnight Sunday the 6th. So maybe things have just recently changed for an earlier closure. Also looks like some issues with closures on the A57 at the junction where it meets the Woodhead. Holme Moss Pass closed from 6pm Friday the 4th.
  9. Just been chatting with a friend of mine who's a policeman. Does seem a little OTT to close it from early saturday. Could see it closed from say 6am on the Sunday but I'm gunna see if he can show me something official stating it will be closed so early to traffic as I can't find anything posted online.
  10. From the sounds of it the Woodhead Pass between Tintwistle and Flouch roundabout will be closed to all non emergency traffic from early morning Saturday, the day before the race comes to Sheffield and then reopen late evening on the Sunday.
  11. Said most likely by people who have absolutely no idea how big of an event the Tour de France is. Some might say it's just a cycles race, some people also say the World Cup final is just a football match. It's the biggest sporting event Sheffield has seen in my life time so far and will be for a long time to come.
  12. Isn't there now a casino built below the cheesegrater car park.
  13. It's a shame many Americans haven't realized yet that the war on terror is destroying your own nation and so much more.
  14. There are plenty of smaller business jets that could land on a 4000ft runway. But if your wanting a true business / city airport, I think you need an airport that can accept a wide range of business jets. Everything from a Citation Mustang to a Citation X and Gulfstream IV and everything else in between.
  15. You're the one stating it's well documented, so you should be the one to link to these well documented facts. I'm more than happy to be proven wrong. ---------- Post added 10-12-2012 at 20:10 ---------- Please enlighten me what I am wrong about.
