1. It has been a little beyond two weeks that I am in Leeds working on a new job related to prosthetic design. I had to have lots of meeting in the past few weeks and running around.
I had very hectic few weeks looking for a new place and putting things together to be able to work as soon as possible.
2. Energy prices in UK is quite expensive compare to North America. There is talk that to force energy providing companies to reduce prices.
In general there are two type of approaches in such a problems, short term and long term.
The short term is to control the prices and create competitive market for energy providing companies, keeping taxes low.
What I always wonder is with so much revolution in energy saving material and ways of make houses more energy efficient, why not investing on that rather than telling to a companies in the free market to control prices. The long term solution is to make house or refurbish the houses to the well above average saving energy condition.
3. Is this Mr. Mohammad Javad Zarif (Iranian foreign minster) making fun of many, perhaps not, I am guessing! who knows.
