New Gloss on Cuba’s Classic Cars

“When Martin Viera’s Chevrolet rolled out of the dealer’s lot, Harry Truman was president of the United States, gasoline cost 27 cents a gallon and a 24-year-old lefty named Tommy Lasorda was pitching for Almendares in the Cuban winter baseball league. That world is long gone, but the Chevy’s still running on the streets of Havana – part of a fleet of classic cars that have become an icon of tourism in the socialist nation. For decades, the cars slowly decayed. But officials in recent years have eased state control over the economy by allowing limited self-employment. So those lucky enough to have a pre-revolutionary car can earn money legally by ferrying tourists – or Cubans celebrating weddings – along Havana’s waterfront Malecon boulevard. Viera’s 1951 Chevrolet and Osmani Rodriguez’s 1954 Ford are now part of Havana’s tourist draw”. – The Associated Press

1268 Kenguru: Electric Car for Disabled People
Never before was there a car designed exclusively for handicapped people that can only move around in a wheelchair. In the past, such people had to rely on others to drive them. Thus, it was impossible to be spontaneous and drive somewhere on a whim. Now, however, a completely revolutionary vehicle has been invented. Kenguru electric car allows for the person to roll into the back of it right on their wheelchair, strap in, and start driving. Though this vehicle might not be very fast with the maximum speed of 25 mph, it is will certainly make the lives of countless people much easier.

Beijing Marathoners Don’t Face Masks to Battle Smog

“An international marathon has gone ahead in China’s capital despite heavy pollution over the city. The 34th Beijing International Marathon began Sunday morning at Tiananmen Square with many of the tens of thousands of competitors wearing face masks. An update Saturday night on the marathon’s official microblog said “there might be slight or moderate smog” on Sunday. It asked competitors to pay attention to the conditions and to take measures according to their own health, and advised elderly athletes and those with respiratory diseases to carefully consider whether to participate. The Beijing News reported that postponing the marathon would be difficult because of the huge organization that had gone into it. About 30,000 people were expected to take part in the marathon and the half-marathon, according to the Beijing News”. – The Associated Press
