Fancy running the London marathon, but don’t really like the outdoors? Good news! You can now run the course on a treadmill instead.

With the race notoriously difficult to actually get into – almost two million people have been rejected since the first London marathon in 1981 – this ‘interactive 3D experience’ offers a chance for runners across the globe to enjoy the world-famous course.

Footage filmed at the beginning of last year’s marathon has been used to create a virtual race, complete with cheering spectators, barriers and aid stations.

Book Review The Catcher In The Rye

The Catcher In The Rye. Classic Literature It Ain’tTed Obvious over on Stirring Trouble Internationally is exploring New York again and one book that seems to pop up over on Amazon is listed below, the reason for this is unknown but the reaction to the book is explained perfectly well.

New biography of the controversial late author J.D.Salinger who wrote a series of novellas, controversial commonly for the Penguin classic book “The Catcher In The Rye” which was his first book published in 1951.

This book is constantly revived by other authors for example thirteen years ago a glossary is provided for sales and academic purposes by a handful or wanna be authors. They provide a syllabus for educational purposes, publish and sell as an ebook then go on to make their own book in the hope that the book will sell. This is called piggybacking of other authors and has been going on since oh I do not know about 1995. Stanley P. Baldwin is one such author of the The Catcher in the Rye (Cliffs Notes), who chose the syllabus American English and labelled the book as Education. The violence of Educational: English literature is mainstream and prominent thanks to the introduction of these Literary studies: fiction. Cherry picking novelists and prose writers during this time has created a disturbing decline in the funding of Literary studies.

The outcast of runaway teenagers in literature is created by creating study guides like this and assume the fact that the pupil is in the classroom they will want to read this sort of thing. Over the years it was inevitable that this sort of thing would reflect badly on the department and when cutbacks came in these areas were the first to be singled out.

The classic, The Catcher In The Rye is about two characters Holden Caulfield and Phoebe, its broke up into sections like his previous book of novellas. Teenage boys in literature is popular however the the subject of runaway teenagers in literature in school textbooks and these sorts of study guides are studied at higher levels of Literature Humanities because they make apparently such engaging study aids and study guides. This is completely backwards, why choose controversial violent books to study. Well anyone who has studied Shakespeare in a classroom will be able to tell you why, done correctly you can get the attention of anyone in a group to read anything and make it seem exciting.

The Great Gatsby (1926 film)

The trouble is from the outside looking in you cannot help ask the question why. So why do I mention this? Well I think it is important to study the effects and talk about that rather than go into more detail about book, I am sure you have at some point been curious to read this book, this post is not about creating curiosity because there are much better books out there that have not been studied by heaps of brainwashed people. The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald is another book from an author who lived and perhaps drew inspiration from Englands English aristocratic United States city living in America particularly the New York Bay area, to the other side of America in Hollywood California which creates a polarised perspective of America’s diverse origin.

Bob Dylan Portrait by T.HO 2004

Bob Dylan the poet and musician was a big fan of books like this because he liked rebels and could relate with feeling different and being alienated.

Easy Access To The Pension Pot

the treasuryThis is a satirical post by Adam Lovejoy about the easy access to the pension pot announced this week .

Solutions for problems that do not seem to go away, the longer you leave it the messier it gets.

Adam is in London talking about the news in the United Kingdom and that funny descriptive place la-la land in regards to the British economy.

Inflation has made it difficult for people to reach for the paper money during business.

And after years of watching Big Brother seems to have come up with the answer.

First they brought in a foreigner to help them clear things up and help out with the day to day running the Bank of England duties. They have announced the next phase. The voice of La La Land Chancellor George Osborne has promised a budget growth called a ‘Super ISA’ for the 1 to 2 % of people who are expecting a pension. This is for people who are finding life in the UK hard and perhaps struggling to access the pot throughout the week from day to day. So how practical is this new solution?

The super ISA is said to give easy access to the pension pot, the question is will it work and more importantly is it the most important thing to focus on? Find out over on Stirring Trouble Internationally.
