I had a visit to Camberwell, days ago, after a long while. I kept an ear out for its liveliness. The buzz felt the same after at least a year since last visiting. I found its park especially light of people in the autumn calm. I took a good short video shoots as well.

Camberwell, in South London, is a borough of Southwark; not a long shot from the City of Charing Cross. I hear it comes from the ancient word ‘Cambrewelle’ (from the word Cumberwell or Comberwell); meaning Well of the Britons.

Camberwell Green was a former traditional green on which annual ancient fairs were held.  

I’m sharing a short clip, 25 seconds of the sights and sounds of this ancient city, all captured with my phone camera and then uploaded onto the video-sharing section of the GTI Platform. The old meets the new. Behold, the ancient, historic, and commercial town of Camberwell

FLASHBACK: Our Editor was at the London Motor Show, eons ago on behalf of GTI International, London and shares with us part of the media pack from Maserati. Some of these Maserati ontent were featured in our Good Times International magazine at the time. Enjoy...
1 – THE NEW QUATTROPORTE
A large luxury saloon with unrivalled driving dynamics.
Since its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2003, the Maserati Quattroporte has been unique on the automotive market thanks to its character of sport luxury saloon, combined with a distinctive Italian soul. It speaks for the traditional Maserati values and provides continuity with the great saloons bearing the same name that have achieved success in the past, from the first Quattroporte with Frua body in 1964, to the “presidential” Quattroporte in 1984, of which the Italian President Sandro Pertini was particularly fond. 

 

 
After five years of success, with more than 15,000 cars sold and 46 awards won internationally, the new Quattroporte range reinforces the model’s exclusive image with a thorough technical and stylistic upgrade, while performance reaches new peaks with the powerful new 4.7 litre, 317 kW (430 CV) engine.
The Pininfarina design, one of the main factors underlying the Quattroporte’s success, reworks the basic theme of the Quattroporte by incorporating the stylistic features of the GranTurismo. All intended to stress the Quattroporte’s character as a luxury limousine with unbeatable dynamic qualities.
There are two versions available, reflecting the car’s dual soul:
·       Quattroporte, powered by the 4.2 litre 8 cylinder engine
·       Quattroporte S, equipped with the 4.7 litre 8 cylinder engine with higher power output and torque, the pinnacle of the Quattroporte range.
 
 
2 – PININFARINA STYLE
A strengthened stylistic identity, to turn even more heads on the road.
Beauty of form is the most immediately noticeable aspect of the work carried out by Pininfarina on the design of the new Quattroporte.
However, the profound renewal of the car’s image is not just the outcome of style for style’s sake, but rather expresses an approach to changing technical and functional requirements: the larger cooling area, for example, was a necessary requirement of the increased engine size. Technological features, such as the introduction of LEDs for the lighting units, as well as aerodynamic ones, which optimise the air flows in the lower part of the vehicle, have also contributed to the final result.
The new Quattroporte looks as if it is gripping the road with even greater determination, with a fresh aggressiveness at the front, due to its increased similarity to the GranTurismo. This effect derives above all from the new radiator grille with vertical fins, and from the larger-sized headlights, with an L-shaped band of LEDs, contributing to the car’s “tougher look”. The side has also been transformed with a more noticeable under-door moulding, while the rear-view mirrors merge more smoothly into the design of the car’s body.
To match the front, the rear has also been reinforced with a more striking approach. The stylistic link to the GranTurismo is clearly reflected in the red outline of the headlights, with a white central part. This is a strong signal of the new Quattroporte’s identity by night, when the rear parking light lights up to form a pair of slanted bars. 
Interior
Sophisticated, cosy and comfortable, the new Quattroporte interior owes its exclusive taste to unmistakably Italian style lines and meticulously crafted details. The dashboard retains its strong character provided by the supporting centre console, finished in luxury materials. All the harmony of the car’s shape now becomes apparent; the airbag housing in front of the passenger is perfectly integrated into the dashboard.

 

 
The centre console has been restyled to bring the controls closer together. This considerably improves the ergonomics of the driving position, also enhanced by snugger seats, a sportier grip for the steering wheel and an easily reachable storage compartment located in the central console.
3 – ENGINEERING
4.7 litre ENGINE
The dual soul as luxury saloon with sports-car performance of the new Quattroporte range finds its ultimate expression on board the Quattroporte S, equipped with the outstanding 4.7 litre V8 delivering a maximum power output of 317 kW (430 CV) at 7,000 rpm, and a maximum torque of 490 Nm at 4,750 rpm.
Easily identifiable thanks to its red cylinder head covers, it is the top of the range of a new family of wet sump engines developed by Maserati engineers to ensure smooth ride and unbeatable performance.
The technical features incorporated in this unit, with speeds rising to 7,200 rpm, have further upgraded the impressive qualities of the latest Maserati engines, i.e. the high specific power output and the capacity for rapid rise and fall in rpm, for an even more thrilling driving experience.
Fully responsive in all driving conditions, the 4.7 litre V8 reveals astonishing acceleration even in high gears, particularly useful during motorway journeys. This plus-factor is achieved through the skilful harmonisation of the shapes of the intake and exhaust ducts, combined with the use of continuous-actuation timing advance processors on the intake camshafts, optimisation of the combustion chamber and the way the engine itself is calibrated to deliver 82% of torque at just 2,500 rpm.
Exhaust/evap emissions and fuel consumption fully comply with the planned Euro 5 regulations for European and LEV2 for the US, thanks to the introduction of an innovative perforated metal sheet catalytic converter that combines permeability and reliability.
The new engine performance figures represent the pinnacle of the Quattroporte range:
·       Maximum power output: 317 kW (430 CV) at 7,000 rpm
·       Maximum torque: 490 Nm (358 lbft) at 4,750 rpm
·       Top speed: 280 km/h (174 mph)
·       Acceleration 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph): 5.4 s
THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
Quick changes for immediate response, fluid and progressive, for the greatest driving comfort.
The automatic transmission of the Quattroporte, featuring a hydraulic torque converter, is the result of a state-of-the-art collaboration between Maserati and ZF which enhances the V8’s progressive delivery at low-medium revs without limiting its power, allowing changes at engine speeds up to 7,200 rpm.
Besides the Normal driving mode, there are two additional automatic gear change modes, ICE and Sport, so the driver can choose the most suitable one according to the road conditions and his/her personal driving style.
Like the true sports saloon that it is, the Quattroporte can also be driven manually using the gear lever on the central tunnel, or the optional gearshift paddles behind the steering wheel. The sixth gear has been optimised to reduce fuel consumption and noise even further during motorway use at high speeds.
In the Quattroporte S, the new, more aggressive power delivery of the 4.7 litre engine is combined with a specific gearbox software, developed to optimise the acceleration and the sporty feel of the automatic transmission
VEHICLE STRUCTURE AND DYNAMICS
The body of the Quattroporte provides an excellent level of torsional and bending stiffness. Furthermore, the high dynamic frequencies of the body itself ensure the highest levels of comfort in any driving condition.

‘Africa: A Moral Outrage’ – Tony Blair (Part 2) by Yemi Ogunshola

In Perspective

Anthropologists say that Africa once enjoyed a time of greatness that helped to bring about the civilization of the Western world: a period of scientists, sailors (as in Mansa Musa’s time), scholars, historians, astrologers, mathematicians,and philosophers. In ancient Ghana, then the Gold Coast, you could keep your gold at the village square and return a long time afterward to find the precious metal at the same spot. But it was also a place that provided strong slaves for the plantations of Europe and the Americas.    

Anthropologists say, too, that the concept of trading, negotiation (as in barter), science, sociology, new-age engineering and reconstructionism  spread out of Africa. Northern Africa also had a taste of Roman civilization, spreading down to wealthy Egypt and her neighbouring states.    

Not only was the first university in the world located there, it was also in Africa that modern warfare and the use of guns originated. Alas, the guns have now been developed and re-sold to the old country so political factions could kill each other.  A friend asked recently: “Given the wealth and beauty of the African past, how then did all the good things suddenly go sour?”

‘Africa: A Moral Outrage’ – Tony Blair  (Part 1) by Yemi Ogunshola

The black Blues

Europe is not a bad example of how things can change…Europe was at war; Europe was subject to the most terrible resignation…” Words very well put by Mr. Blair at a world press conference in 2005, to which Good Times International (GTI) was invited.

Europe’s is a history fraught over many centuries with uncertainty. It has endured wars, poverty, and pestilence. Britain has had its share of these, battling internal strife, two world wars, general discontent and hardship. More than once the country has experienced royal discontent as feuds rent apart members of the ruling families, for instance, during the period of the Plantagenets. Nor was the nation exempt from disasters: some 70,000 lost their lives to the famous plague. Then in 1666, as in Nero’s Rome, a great fire seared through the city of London, destroying buildings and sending terror into the hearts of inhabitants. It was, as one historian wrote, ‘…a place of fear and flames.’    

Yet, the people picked themselves up and rebuilt anew, as they did after the terrible destruction of World War II.

Water Times

Someone shared some information some days ago and I find it a pleasure to pass it round. The importance of water cannot be over-stated. It does look ideal to drink at specific times of the day. At least, a cardiac specialist would agree. For best effect, drink: 

A glass of water before going to bed - assists against stroke or heart attack. 

2 glasses of water after waking up – assists to activate internal organs. 

A glass of water before taking a bath - assists to lower blood pressure.

YOUR BRAND, YOUR POWER (Part 2) - by Yemi Ogunshola

 

The Next Level

These days few people have been left untouched by the power of the internet.

When building a corporate website, it is essential that it reflects your brand. The internet experience is a journey in itself, and the earlier one begins, then the quicker and more effective are the results. Register as many domain names as possible, select a good hosting company (preferably one which specializes in internet marketing), build websites in accordance with genre (category), optimize the sites with the search engines and directories, and watch your sales, services, and activities soar.

YOUR BRAND, YOUR POWER (Part 1) - by Yemi Ogunshola

Your site is your brand…Your power.

A website, unless it’s a search engine, should not be made to serve too many different functions at the same time. For instance, a corporate website is meant to brand the company (or person) and project its image. Selling products on that same site is not a good idea. If this is done, the rewards can be minimal, bringing in less than 2 or 3 % of the site’s potential. The solution? Building as many sites as possible or necessary!

Website genre or categories may include Custom Design, Personal, Business, the Modern, or Corporate. These days, available styles may include 3d, Artworks, Cartoon, Clean, Collage, Dark, Futurist, Geometric, Grunge, Minimalist, Paper Made, Retro, Corporate, Urban / Street, Vector, or Neutral. Depending on your type of business, choose your genre well.

Websites may be in the form of E-Commerce, the orthodox simple website, or Content Management System/Blog. Examples of the E-commerce types are osCommerce, ZenCart, CRE Loaded, and Magento Themes. Web Design types include the Static, Flash, Flash Intro, SWiSH , and Dynamic Flash Photo Galleries. Content Management Systems and Blogs may be in the form of PHP-Nuke, PhpBB, WordPress Themes, Joomla, Mambo, and Drupal.
