London cabs to make their way Down Under
0% Total votes: 0 Houwei Tian had the most difficult time of any singles player in reaching this stage of the London Grand Prix, the only finalist to not seeded Tuesday morning. Along the way, the Chinese underdog saw the retirements of his first two opponents before overcoming No. 1 overall seed Jan O Jorgensen in a three-game thriller last Thursday. The trials didnt stop there for Tian. A quarter-final beating of Singapores Zi Liang Derek Wong was followed up with victory over another tournament favourite, Englands own Rajiv Ouseph, in Saturdays semi. Standing opposite the 21-year-old is second seed and O Jorgensens Danish compatriot, Hans-Christian Vittinghus. Having already managed to beat the odds on three substantial occasions in the last week, Tian could earn the biggest accolade of his career since winning the Yonex Australia Open in April of this year. Prediction: Vittinghus Wins 2-1 Carolina Marin vs. Kirsty Gilmour As the last hope of Britain claiming any home singles glory, Scotlands Kirsty Gilmour carries the weight of several nations on her shoulders in ensuring the Olympic spirit of 2012 lives on at the Copper Box. With that being the case, it’s nice to see the 20-year-old hasn’t lost sight of her less glitzy side: Very happy to be through to the quarters of the singles and doubles at the London GPG! Glamorous life of an athlete. pic.twitter.com/HVn3Fvoohz Kirsty Gilmour (@KirstyGilmourr) October 4, 2013 Carolina Marin will be the most difficult test of Gilmours resolve. The Spaniard is the highest womens seed that the Scot will face (third overall compared to Gilmours fifth). Marin will also be just the second seeded opponent to have crossed Gilmour this week, Saturdays semi-final win over Kristina Gavnholt being the toughest task up until now.
London steals title of best city in the world from Paris
Or its reputation for rudeness. But the City of Light, one of the most visited cities in the world, has been knocked off its perch as best city in the world by London and Sydney in a new index released this week. According to the latest edition of the Anholt-GfK City Brands Index which measures a citys brand image, power and appeal, Londons stock has gone up in the world as it took the top spot in the biennial ranking. Possible reasons could include the fact that the city continues to bask in the afterglow of a successful Summer Olympic Games and has maintained a presence in the international spotlight with a string of historic milestones that include the Queens Coronation ceremony and the highly anticipated birth of a new royal with the arrival of Prince George. London also took the top spot as the city where individual cultures are appreciated and where foreigners can “easily fit in.” The Aussie capital of Sydney, meanwhile, enjoys a stellar reputation around the world for being the safest and friendliest city. The City Brands index measures the value of a citys international reputation across six dimensions: its international status and standing; esthetic; a category called pre-requisites such as affordable accommodations and the standard of public amenities; people; pulse (interesting things to do) and its economic and educational potential. More than 5,140 interviews were conducted in Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Russia, South Korea, the US and the UK for the index. And while Paris was able to take the top spot in the category of Pulse, where the city failed to crack the top 10 ranking was in categories such as Friendly People and Safety. This summer, in a bid to shed their longstanding image of being rude and surly, the citys chamber of commerce published an etiquette manual for Parisian restaurateurs, taxi drivers and sales staff on how to welcome international tourists. …despite its indisputable charm, the capital has work to do when it comes to welcoming visitors, the chamber admits. And earlier this year, high-profile muggings of Chinese tourists robbed of their passports, plane tickets and cash shortly after landing in Paris tarnished the citys image, as did footage broadcast worldwide of soccer-related riots which broke out not far from the Eiffel Tower. Meanwhile, other notable movements on the index include Tokyo, which suffered a 7-spot drop from tenth place in 2011 to 17th place in 2013. Amsterdam, meanwhile, shot up the ranks from 17th spot to 11th position this year. And while Rio de Janeiro was ranked the third friendliest city on the list, the city fell to the bottom of the heap when it comes to safety (47 out of 50) — a particular concern given it’s set to host the World Cup and the Summer Olympics, the report points out.
London Calling: Binky Felstead shares her tips on getting that Chelsea girl look
File picture: Rui Vieira/PA Wire Monday, October 7, 2013 12:32 AM The famous London cab is to make an appearance in Australia, but not in the traditional black. Print To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in. The London Taxi Company has exported a test sample of 98 TX4 taxis – in white – to the Western Australian city of Perth where they will under go trials over the next few weeks. It has been thought fit to paint the cabs white to take account of the perpetual Perth sunshine. If the trial goes well more cabs will be ordered, with the Australian state of Victoria expected to be the next area to take the UK taxis. The export order is one of the first to be fulfilled since the relaunch of production by the London Taxi Company at its factory in Coventry last month. The companys chief executive Evan Simeon said: The response has been phenomenal. We couldnt have asked for a better welcome. One Perth operator who purchased a fleet of the 50 bright, white used TX4s has already had a stampede of drivers who want to be the first ones to buy a cab and partake in the trial. Weve had a lot of positive interest from ex-pats, both prospective customers and drivers; what has been especially gratifying are the offers from ex-pat London Taxi drivers who not only want to buy one, but have also offered their services to train our Australian drivers on everything from the service to vehicle operation.
