Moss and Fog

cars of the future moss and fog 1

Sometimes we can predict the future accurately, and sometimes we’re way off. But the imagination and bold vision matters, and it’s great to see these artists making huge leaps of faith, in terms of what they imagined cars of the future to look like.

The 1950s were a time of confidence and big dreams. Here are some exceptionally bold visions of what people thought motoring/traveling in the future would be like. Via DarkRoastedBlend:

That I had my very own superpower.

Let’s face it, life would be much more fun and easier to navigate if I had super speed, the ability to fly, or at the very least, the power to read minds.  I might get a date once in a while if I knew what women were thinking.

Administrative Law in the Common Law World

Judicial review is essential component of the rule of law. When governmental officials act beyond the scope of their powers, or harm rights, individuals can go to court and receive an appropriate remedy. Justice, however, is not cheap; especially in the United Kingdom. However, if judicial review provides you with an appropriate remedy, you may be willing to pay the price, the remedy outweighing the costs. Your decision to go to court is even more likely if you can obtain an order to cap costs, or find a public interest organisation willing to champion your case.

LONDON—The U.K. on Wednesday is set to make official its planned exit from the European Union, starting on an unprecedented path to reshape its relationship with its closest allies in some of the most complex negotiations the country has ever undertaken.

Nine months after Britain voted to leave the EU, Tim Barrow, Britain’s ambassador to the bloc, is expected to hand deliver a letter to European Council President Donald Tusk formally notifying the bloc that the U.K. will be the first country ever to leave.
