Tokyo MK Taxi: Kort oversikt over Limousine

Limousiner er epitome av luksus og stilig. Det har vært, men ikke offisielt, kjent for å være et kjøretøy for rike og berømte mennesker. Men har du noen gang lurt på når ideen om dette kjøretøyet først kom inn? Vel, en liten børste av historien først. Tokyo MK Taxi forteller deg hvordan!

Ordet "limousine" kommer fra en region i Frankrike som heter Limousin. Før etableringen av den faktiske limousinen fra bilfirmaer i begynnelsen av 1900-tallet ble ideen om chaufferte kjøretøy oppfunnet ved bruk av hestevogner på 1700-tallet. Rike folk som har råd til vognene, hadde dem tilpasset og dekorert med gull og juveler.

Limousiner som vi kjenner det i dag, kom kort tid etter etableringen av bilbiler. Disse kjøretøyene har en skillevegg som skiller to rom - en for passasjeren og en for sjåføren. Det finnes ulike typer limousiner, og hver av dem er best egnet til ulike anledninger og arrangementer som proms, bryllup og bedrifts transport. Noen har flatskjerm og underholdningsbar med avanserte lydanlegg, slik at du kan lene deg tilbake og slappe av mens du blir båret av å lytte til musikk, og alt dette kommer med privatliv og bekvemmelighet.

Opplevelsen av limousineres popularitet gjorde veien til vanlige folk som vil oppleve å ri i stil. Denne gangen er dette sjåførkjøretøyet ikke begrenset til de privilegerte få, det er limousineutleiefirmaer som Tokyo MK Taxi, et globalt selskap som tilbyr taxi- og sjåførtjenester over hele Japan, Korea og USA.

Tokyo MK Taxi er dedikert til å bære århundrer gamle tradisjon, og tilbyr luksuriøse limousintjenester for alle anledninger. Fra selskapsarrangementer, bryllup, prom eller bare en natttur på byen, vil Tokyo MK Taxi definitivt gi den ultimate luksustransportopplevelsen som overstiger dine forventninger. Deres profesjonelt trente chauffører vil prioritere sikkerheten din uansett hvor du vil. Tokyo MK Taxi har Lexus-gruppentusiaster og lar klienter komme fram i stil med ulike limo-alternativer som Lexus 600hl, Lexus 460, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota Hiace og Nissan Fuga Hybrid.

PayPal users hit with Payment Successfully Made Via Ali Express Phishing Scam

PayPal is one of the most used platforms for sending and receiving payments by small medium and large enterprises. This makes it the most lucrative target for cyber criminals which is why PayPal phishing scams are so common these days. However, with every new day, these cyber criminals are coming up with new tactics to trick unsuspicious users and steal their personal and financial information.

Recently, some PayPal users (including myself) have received an email claiming that a payment of $450.0 USD has been made to lie.xyy ( from their PayPal account through AliExpress for iPhone 6S Black 32GB but in case the user did not make this payment and looking to resolve the issue they should click the link.

Now, if you are someone who keeps an eye on online scams, you may suspect something is wrong and login to your PayPal account to check what is going on while unsuspecting users may simply click on the link in the email body and fall for the scam. I personally, was in shock since I never made any payment for an iPhone 6s through AliExpress or Alibaba however upon going through the email content it was certain that this was nothing but a Phishing scam.

Online Security: NZers flock online for shopping despite cybercrime fears

New Zealanders plan to do nearly 40 percent of their Christmas shopping online this year despite fears of having their credit card or personal details stolen, according to new research from Norton by Symantec.

The Norton Online Shopping Survey reveals that 20 percent of Kiwis find online shopping stressful because of security worries yet 37 percent still do not check a website’s security before shopping online and only 17 percent of those who bother to check are fully confident they know what to look for.

"New Zealand’s love affair with online shopping has seen one in three Kiwis spend more than two hours per week shopping online," said Mark Gorrie, Director, Norton Business Unit, Pacific region, Symantec.

"However with the number of people affected by online crime continuing to rise[1], scammers are constantly refining their skills and targeting New Zealanders with malicious links and scams containing ‘too good to be true’ deals to steal their credit cards details and personal information.

"While the Norton Online Shopping Survey shows that New Zealanders are concerned about security when they shop online, some Kiwis are still choosing to not act on these concerns and putting themselves at risk of identity theft and credit card fraud," Gorrie added.

Online Shopping Security Concerns

Over two thirds of New Zealanders (68 percent) worry most about having their credit card details stolen, whilst half of respondents (51 percent) admitted they were fearful of purchasing goods from an untrustworthy or illegitimate site.

In addition, New Zealanders were concerned about falling victim to a data breach from an online retailer and having a username and password leaked from an online retailer - both at 35 percent. Surprisingly, 12 percent of those surveyed were not concerned by any of these risks at all.

Many of these security concerns are warranted with approximately 17 percent of New Zealanders experiencing credit card fraud as a result of online shopping. Indeed the proportion might even be as high as 25 percent since eight percent said they have experienced credit card fraud but are not sure whether the fraudsters obtained their card details whilst they were shopping online or not.

Smartphone security also presents security challenges for New Zealanders shopping online. The majority of New Zealanders (80 percent) have used their smartphones to browse online shops and 62 percent have made online purchases using their smartphones. Interestingly one in three Kiwis (32 percent) have entered their credit card details on a mobile app yet more than half of all Kiwis (51 percent) are using unprotected smartphones. Only one third of New Zealanders who shop online use two factor authentication and nearly half (47 percent) do not even know what two factor authentication means.

Norton Online Shopping Safety Tips

- If it is too good to be true, it probably is. Be aware of the cheap price tag as free or discounted goods could end up being really costly. So if you have found the latest hot designer shoes, but for a tenth of the price, regardless of how nice they may be for your office Christmas party, they are probably not real. Cybercriminals are experts at creating websites and making them look identical to your favourite brand sites. Only shop at reputable online sites and avoid getting your credit card scammed.

- Beware of fake website links. Do not click on links in an email that appear to come from your favourite online store. Instead type the store’s address into your browser to avoid going to a malicious website.

Be smart with your passwords. Protect your accounts with strong, unique passwords that use a combination of at least 10 upper and lowercase letters, symbols and numbers to help keep the bad guys at bay. Make it difficult for attackers to access your information by changing your passwords every three months and not reusing passwords for multiple accounts. That way, if a cybercriminal gets your password, they can’t compromise all of your accounts. And if it is too overwhelming to keep up this practice, use a password manager to help.

Beware of phishing scams. Think twice before opening unsolicited messages or attachments, particularly from people you don’t know, or clicking on random links. The message may be from a cybercriminal who has compromised your friend or family member’s email or social media accounts.

Organise your online shopping. Set up an email account specifically to deal with online shopping. Provide as little information as possible to get the account set-up and don’t use it for anything else such as online banking, business correspondence or family matters.

Protect your bank details. Always look out for the ‘padlock’ icon or the Norton Secured Seal when making a payment online. These symbols indicate that the website you are visiting uses encryption to protect you, so cybercriminals cannot capture your personal information. Never let a website ‘remember’ your credit card details, always retype them if you want to shop there again.

Online payments. Even though it is the season of goodwill, avoid using public or shared computers, or even a wireless network to make a payment online. Hackers can easily capture your account information, log-in details and steal your money. Use a separate credit card with a small credit limit for online purchases.

Is your internet security software up-to-date? Update your security software regularly, especially during the festive season. Cybercriminals are more sophisticated than ever before and they will jump on any social trend to spread malware and steal your personal details.

Check your statements. Always check your credit card statements to look out for unexpected transactions.

Hawkfield Gallery Consultants Review: Thriving Classic American Art on Display

What is Art? The question has often been asked by many people. And the answer can be as many as the people who can give an answer. For the art collector, the answer is quite obvious: that which you can buy at an art gallery. And that answer can have a logic that many will learn to appreciate.

Firstly, galleries have the artistic, technical and economic capabilities to know or define what good art is --- not just art but that which is above the rest, if not at the very top of all the rest. But not many people can afford highly-expensive works, or even reasonably priced ones. If one can buy and treasure a couple of art works for the rest of one’s life, it would be enough. But a few dream of collecting more -- and even making some money out of doing so.

Hawkfield Gallery fine arts consultants have the broad experience of buying and selling art and in the process have gained the expertise to help other start their own collection or enhance what they already have. Very much like children collecting cards, art collecting is a passion that is shared by those who love art and wish to expand appreciation for great art works. 

Beyond appreciating art as a whole, Hawfield Gallery art consultants have the goal of enhancing appreciation for folk art and preserving American culture and history contained in those art works. Art, to be honest, is a living legacy which expands the mind and the soul of those who have insight into art’s power to enlighten us of the greatness and goodness of life of whatever era in American history it might portray. Although some art subject matters may exhibit the pains and struggles of ancestors, they still highlight the positive virtues that have made their country what it is today, a leader among leaders in the world.

The Hawkfield Gallery is located on a picturesque scenic route in a shore town halfway between Boston and Cape Cod, itself a witness to the colorful history of the nation. It is housed in an 1850's farmhouse and exactly where there used to be a tearoom, craft shop and lending library in the 1920's. The farmhouse is located in an area beside the historic North River and was once operated as a dairy farm up to the 1960’s. Visitors can take a leisurely a walk along bucolic woodland trails which lead to a pier on the river. Or they can go beyond to one of the numerous antique shops, galleries or historic sites in the South Shore's Plymouth County. Now you know how rich the place is when it comes to American pioneer history.

Owning one art work bought from Hawkfield Gallery is, in essence, a tribute to the continuing allegiance that Americans have for their rich national heritage. And buying one right at their gallery right can certainly add a little more fervor to that burning flame in every patriotic American citizen. Nevertheless, you need not be an American to feel like one and to appreciate or own American folk art. You just need to be a lover of art.

Things to Do in Surrey by Group Holiday in Southbourne Dorset

The county of Surrey is situated in the south east of England and covers some 1500 square kilometres between London to the North and the protected countryside of the Surrey Hills to the south.

The Surrey Hills are an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Its rich heritage has inspired many famous writers, painters and musicians.

Surrey contains busy towns with excellent shopping facilities, historic market towns and a wealth of quintessentially English villages.

There are family activities and adventure parks such as Chessington World of Adventure, famous racecourses like Epsom, historic house like Hampton Court and gardens like Kew Gardens.

This is in addition to countryside with beautiful landscapes and views. Surrey is a county for everyone, with so much to see and do, choosing can be difficult!

Surrey is the most urbanised County in England but over 6,500 acres of countryside remain. As such, it's still England's most wooded county.

Visit Surrey Tourist Information centres for details of how to explore the beautiful countryside by Ranger guided walks, or via the Surrey Cycleway. The rivers Mole, Thames and Wey running through the County offer opportunities for fishing and boating.

Surrey is famous as the site of the signing of the Magna Carta. On 15th June 1215 King John met 25 barons, somewhere between Staines and Windsor. This meeting at Runnymede fields, resulted in the king attaching his seal to a document that became known as the Magna Carta.

Today you can visit Runnymede Meadow, Egham, to see the Magna Carta Memorial. It was erected by the American Bar Association to commemorate the sealing of the Magna Carta's 750th Anniversary. Here you will also see the Kennedy Memorial, the site was given to the people of America in memory of President John F Kennedy.

The town of Guilford offers some of the best shopping facilities in the south east. You can take a guided walk to learn about its history and fascinating buildings. The River Wey lends a tranquil feel to the middle of town and offers access to lovely countryside - a short walk along the towpath. The surrounding countryside offers a wealth of attractions, including stately homes like Clandon Park, and Hatchlands Park. There is also the River Wey and its Navigations - centred at Dapdune Wharf - and RHS Garden at Wisley.

Leatherhead is a distinctive, historic market town and is a gateway to the Surrey Hills. With nine business parks, it is also an important working destination, as well as being an excellent centre from which to explore the area. The Mole Gap Trail - one of many marked trails - takes visitors through the valley of the River Mole and links the towns of Leatherhead and Dorking.

Dorking nestles in the narrow valley between the Greensand Hills to the south and the chalk hills of the North Downs. One of Dorking's more famous residents was the composer Vaughn Williams. He was the first conductor of the Leith Hill Musical Festival. You can drop into the tourist information centre for details of this and other festivals and events in the area. The local countryside is well worth exploring. There are historic villages, each with its own charm, a wine estate, historic properties, and Bocketts Farm - a great family attraction.

Farnham is to be found in the south west of Surrey, it is a gracious country town with some of the finest Georgian architecture in the south. Its castle dates back to the 12th century. The town is the starting point for the North Downs Way.
