Learning to Drive in a Big City

Learning to drive is an important step in anyone’s life and when you first get behind the wheel for your first driving lessons it can be an exciting, but also a nerve wracking experience. Depending on where you live will typically dictate where you learn to drive. For some people this is the countryside or a small town but for others who live in big cities such as London, Manchester, and Leeds.

Learning to drive in a big city is very different from learning how to drive in a small town and many people would regard it as more challenging. Therefore it is particularly important to make sure that you are taking driving lessons with a company with a good reputation and solid teaching record.

Hazards

If you are learning to drive in the city then you are typically going to have to face more hazards, more often. Even if you are learning to drive at a very quiet time of the day you are more likely to see people on the streets than if you are outside of the city. As well as pedestrians, the streets are likely to be busier and you are going to have to pay extra attention to make sure that you do not collide with other cars.

In recent years, city cycling has become very popular and despite the increasing number of cycle routes in UK in cities you will still find many cyclists on the road. As a general rule cyclists have not had to pass any sort of test to get on the road so you cannot rely on them knowing the rules of the road and obeying them. Cyclists should be aware of drivers and be careful but it is also the responsibility of the drivers to avoid cyclists.

Rush Hour

Any reputable company offering driving lessons will not take you out in rush-hour traffic until you are ready. Once you have mastered the basics and your instructor feels you are aware of hazards on the road then you can tackle rush-hour, but never rush into it. The increased traffic can be an overwhelming and, quite frankly, dangerous experience.

One Way Systems

When taking driving lessons, navigating a one-way system can be a complex process and you will find that roads you might normally be allowed to turn down are off-limits. Fortunately you’re driving instructor will ensure that you don’t go down the wrong road. Pay attention to the system, and remember how to navigate the one-way roads by looking at road signs – if you just remember how to navigate only that one-way system, when you come to another you will not know where to go.

There is no question that driving in the big city is a very different experience and learning to drive elsewhere and is arguably harder than learning outside of the city. You are most likely to have success with your driving lessons in Leeds and other major cities if you choose a good instructor.

The Fall of the Hacienda

The Hacienda in Manchester was a legendary members-only nightclub that was arguably the most famous club of its time. Madonna’s first appearance in the United Kingdom was at the Hacienda in 1984, which was the height of her fame if that’s any indication of what kind of fanciful magic this nightclub possessed. First opened in 1982, the Hacienda experienced its glory days in the 1980s, a time that was dubbed «Madchester» in tribute to the musical awakening in Britain at this time brought on by the music played live at the clubs.

Owned and financed partially by the band New Order and its record label Factory Records, the early days of the Hacienda were surprisingly relaxed, featuring bands such as Ministry of Sound, Cream, and The Smiths. The late 80s saw the advent of the unique sounds of acid house and a new kind of party: the rave. The maniacal rave scene was highlighted by the use of ecstasy, laser light shows, and fast paced electronic music and it changed the landscape of nightclubs all throughout England. By 1986, DJ’s playing house music had replaced live bands and the club gained world wide acclaim.

The turning point in the Hacienda’s notoriety came in 1989 when a 16 year old girl named Claire Leighton collapsed as a result of complications from ingesting ecstasy, and died shortly thereafter. Unfortunately, this was the beginning of the end and after several rocky years, the Hacienda finally closed in 1997. An apartment building of the same name now stands on the spot of the original Hacienda at 11-13 Whitworth Street West; developers demolished the original building. The interior fixtures, including pieces from the DJ booth, were sold at auction in November 2000 with all proceeds going to charity.

Visitors to the site of the Hacienda today will find themselves in the city centre of Manchester, an area that is, not the least bit surprisingly, a hot bed of clubs and bars. Although Piccadilly Station is nearby, most tourists walk the area of city centre, which is quite small. With a wide selection of hotels, Manchester has a lot to offer the overnight guest. Local cuisine consists of anything from Thai to French to Japanese to Indian. Many locations match up an award winning restaurant to one of the finest Manchester hotels, so guests can opt for a night in after a long day of seeing the sights of this infamous musical city.

Leftbank Apartments – Location and Facilities

The city of Manchester has become the choice destination for many new settlers in the United Kingdom. London has long been the economic hub to attract investors and workers from all over Britain. However, due to the overcrowded city of London, many people are now heading towards Manchester. Manchester has been one of the most industrial towns in the Britain, and its development into a sophisticated and cosmopolitan city has been reason enough to attract settlers in this part of Britain.

When going through residential properties, you would come across the development of Leftbank Apartments, structured specifically for settlers and new dwellers in Manchester. The Leftbanck Apartments attract a lot of attention and notice from new would-be residents, primarily because of their location.

Located in the centre of Manchester city, these apartments boast a number of top-notch facilities. Central Manchester houses great shopping malls, cuisines and many bars and pubs. The night life in this part of the city is full of vigour and energy. Hence, the location of the Leftbank apartments in the core of Manchester is of no surprise.

The apartments are mostly located on the banks of rivers such as River Irwell. This makes them a prime attraction for people who are looking for scenically beautiful areas to lodge at. Moreover, the location ensures that the general hustle and bustle of life in this busy metropolitan is not such a major factor for people who prefer some peace and quietness.

All apartments are well-furnished and are well-connected with elevators. To get to your desired shopping mall or some gym, all you have to do is to take the elevator and walk on. This is another reason why the Leftbank apartments are so popular among new settlers.

Another reason for their popularity is that the prices of these apartments are inclusive of electricity rates, towels and linens. Hence, you do not have to worry about paying for all these things individually, rather as a small chunk of the price you pay for the entire apartment. The rents are quite nominal, when compared with other residential areas, and you can get the apartments on a daily, weekly or monthly basis on rent, the way it best suits you.

The spacious parking lots work in the favour of these apartments as well. Other residential areas have congested parking lots due to smaller construction area; however, at Leftbank, you get good parking space for your vehicle. It is also well-secured and, thus, you do not have to worry about car theft when parking your car.

Also, apart from the above mentioned factors, another great thing about these apartments is their 24/7 reception. The Leftbank administration also provides its residents with a facilitation centre that allows them to arrange their trips etc. Moreover, the apartment complex has huge swimming pools, hair saloons for both ladies and gents among other things. It is definitely a residential feat to be able to construct something like the Leftbank apartments and at such reasonable rent per month.

Can Soccer Be Explained By Statistics?

Can a game as fluid and – many would argue – nuanced, and even elegant, as the game of soccer is, be explained by statistics? After all, there are hundreds of variables which all come into play during each and every soccer match – and, in some cases, pure luck seems to be a deciding factor in winning the game. A player’s performance in that particular match surely cannot be explained by the numbers alone, so those unknowns cannot be discounted neither.

Can any win or lose in the game of soccer be attributed to something as unpoetical as numbers, skeptics wonder. Soccer fans have never demanded more than to know the score, and time elapsed. Unlike those dedicated to baseball, soccer websites typically display only a handful of categories that could be useful for statistics: goals, assists, shots, shots on goal, game-winning goals and game-winning assists. Looking at those, one could conclude that soccer is just not a numbers game.

Still, in this age of big data, even a game as free-flowing, variable and seemingly unpredictable as the soccer undoubtedly is, has started to take data analysis more seriously. It was only in 1994 that FIFA has started counting assists, but now it looks like the game of soccer may be on a brink of statistical revolution. The biggest clubs, like Arsenal, Real Madrid, Chelsea or Manchester United, have already spent hundreds of thousands on statistical data analysis.

However, it looks like top clubs intend to keep the data for themselves! They have staff members dedicated to interpreting the data that has been generated on their matches. It seems like they are not too keen on making the methods they use to do so publicly debatable. They prefer to use them internally, to their team’s advantage.

Data analysis companies they employ will watch a live feed of the game, chart any distinct action, enter all this data into a database, and crunch the numbers. Statistics such as individual player touches, number of passes, number of balls lost and won, and others, are then revealed. While it seems that the resulting numbers still can’t accurately predict who will win the game, they can tell you a lot about the quality of the game. For example, a team’s number of touches is found to correlate with his FIFA rankings.

Still, unlike baseball and other similarly structured sports, analyzing soccer data is hard. Yet, there is no going back to hunches-only approach any time soon.
