Finding a job in the south of Spain.

OK, I'll admit it, this is not going to be highly informative article about all the different ways you can find a job working in the South of Spain and there’s a good reason for that; I’m extremely biased. I’m going to tell you that the best way to get a good job in Marbella, Fuengirola , Malaga or any of the many beautiful cities and towns on the Costa del Sol is by contacting me. It’s that simple.

Why our thinking about global warming and fossil fuels is all wrong.

by Andrew Brett Watson

Our planet is getting warmer. Our fossil fuels are dwindling. Oh well, pass the nuts.

I am constantly dismayed at how little is actually done by people about Global Warming (other than complain that something must be done). I asked around the office how many people recycle and it turned out that I was the only person who recycled everything. A select few recycled their paper and many recycled glass, and that's it. Plastic, oh, that just went in with the normal rubbish.

Marble Machine crazy cool music playing invention #music #creative

by Andrew Brett Watson

If you watch this youtube video of someone who built a crazy cool machine which plays music as marbles run through it, and can't appreciate it on a number of levels then you are completely lost.

This is an epic display of creativity, hard work and skill and deserves every view it gets! Enjoy watching as this emo dude plays the epic marble machine!

#Running up a 400m #Ski Jump slope, possibly one of the most gruelling things I can imaging #redbull.

Running up a ski jump slope.

Ok, I do a bit of fitness, not as much as I should, but I try. Running wasn't really my thing but after I got into it and now I can't imagine not doing it. I would't want to compete with these guys, I don't even know if I'd complete the course! But I would love the chance to just try, I wonder if there is a ski jump slope anywhere in Spain (where I live) that I can go to. Anyway, while I'm googling ski jump slopes to run up, you can watch the action in this this video:

 

If you haven't watched student Ryan Chester's video explaining Einsteins Special Theory of Relativity, you should, now it's #awesome #amazing (depending on your frame of reference).

by Andrew Brett Watson

A block buster film may be amazing, it might have a great story, excellent actors, top notch cinematography and effects. By comparison, a home made movie might not be seam so good. But if you are not comparing the two and are focused entirely on one video at a time, a home video such as this one by Ryan Chester will blow you away. It's whats called a frame of reference and when Einstein observed that the effects of time change depending on the frame of reference, I never fully understood the physics of it. Until now. Thanks Chester.

 

Why combustion engine cars are dead #Tesla #tsla #eco

by Andrew Brett Watson

At some point there may have been an argument against electric cars that was valid, but not any more.

Now things are different. Combustion engine cars are nothing but fossels from a bygone era.

Now there is only one type of motor to put in a car and that's an electric one.

An electric motor not only provides a clear view of humanities endgame for transportation without pollution, it also offers the one thing that will convert die hard car enthusiast once reluctant to embrace the technology; Power. Real, go faster power.

We may not have all the infrastructure in place to provide all the electricity we need greenly in every part of the world, but that's solvable and there are many parts of the world where renewable electricity is generated.

If you don't believe the writing is on the wall for combustion engines, just take a look at this youtube video where some lucky Australians get to race a Tesla Model S P90D against a very capable V8 (If you have never been to Austalia, let me tell you, they love V8's, they even have their own racing events specifically for fully tuned  V8's):

Please note: this looks like an older video, the Tesla Model S P90D is now available with the option for even more power and instead of "insane mode" it now can be configured (if you pay extra) with "Ludicrous mode" which brings the 0-100kmh figure to just 2.8 seconds.

Watch as a Tesla eats up a V8 and then is surprised as another, more powerful challenge arrives…
