So I asked Robby – “The costs associated with building a car with passion, that essentially represents you and who you are, very quickly get lost in the excitement of it all. I never stopped. Each day I’d have a new idea, one I’d want to try out on my M4. So far however I’ve invested around $30,000 on my M4. The largest investment out of that $30,000 was put into the DINAN upgrade, but then again, it’s also made the biggest difference. It’s taken an already perfect car and transformed it into something extraordinary.” And there you have it! A masterfully upgraded DINAN M4 owned by a proper M enthusiast.

Britain has recorded its first full day without using coal power since the Industrial Revolution began more than 200 years ago. The remarkable milestone was achieved Friday, following years of investment in renewable energy and the perfect combination of another famous British characteristic: its unpredictable weather. “So that’s both solar and wind. And when the sun is shining and the wind is blowing together, the capacity of renewables now generates of lot of electricity. And it was that fortuitous circumstance that brought us to a day without coal,” Professor Paul Ekins of University College London told VOA.

They are often led to believe that mining is for their own benefit, but then they are displaced by destructive development." India's tribes make up almost 10 percent of its 1.3 billion population. Yet most live on the margins of societyinhabiting remote villages and eking out a living from farming, cattle rearing and collecting and selling forest produce. Many live in mineral-rich regions such as Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand, and risk being chased off their ancestral land due to a rising number of mining projects. While their land is protected under a decade-old law known as the Forest Rights Act, few know their rightsleaving them open to exploitation.
