Spend Now, Save Later These days, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all being urged to return to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;make do and mendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;; to reduce, reuse and recycle because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economical and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. But sometimes this can be false economy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and false ecology, too. Some things may be worth replacing or investing in.

Cars

   / 65! /  1 

 

Ever hung on too long to a car thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eventually cost more in total repairs than it did to buy? Buying a new (or even relatively new!) car is expensive, but in the long run it may save you money â&#x20AC;&#x201C; depending on what car you buy. ECONOMY: A new car VKRXOGEHPRUHIXHOHIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQW saving you money on petrol or diesel costs. Treat it well and it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need major maintenance for years, plus a brand new car wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need an MOT until itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three years old. ECOLOGY: Greater fuel HIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQF\DQGORZHUHPLVVLRQV mean newer cars tend to be greener.

Boilers Once again, we can hang on to boilers too long and they can be expensive to repair, particularly if you need to call someone out overnight or during a holiday. Maintenance contracts arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always cheap either. ECONOMY: Boilers account for around 55% of your energy costs; replacing your old one with an A-rated condensing boiler and modern heating controls will ensure your home and water are warm when needed but arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wasting energy when not, and could save you up to ÂŁ305 a year on 

energy bills. ECOLOGY: A new boiler will reduce your energy use and carbon dioxide emissions.

Water softeners

About 60% of UK households have hard water that can damage and lessen the HIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQF\RIDSSOLDQFHV and heating systems; just 1.6mm of scale build-up can cause a 12% loss in heating HIĂ&#x20AC;FLHQF\6KRZHUKHDGV toilets, taps, pipes, radiators, boilers, kettles, dishwashers and washing machines will all need more frequent repair and replacement, not to mention the cost of limescale removers for appliances, sinks and toilets, and the greater quantities of detergent, shampoo, shower gel, washing-up liquid and toilet cleaner required. ECONOMY: British Water estimates that a water softener could save the average 4person household around ÂŁ200 a year. ECOLOGY:6RIWHQHGZDWHU can remove existing scale deposits over time in heating systems. Fewer chemicals and less energy are used, and appliances will need less frequent repair or replacement.

Solar Panels The governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s FIT (feed-intariff) scheme offers 20 years of

guaranteed, tax-free, indexlinked payments to households that produce their own electricity from renewable technologies. To make the biggest saving, use as many appliances as possible in the daytime when generating your own power. ECONOMY: Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re paid for every kilowatt of energy you create, and every kilowatt you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use, which feeds back into the National Grid; and of course the bills from your supplier will drop dramatically too (solar panels create about two thirds of the energy necessary for a family of four). On average, installation costs around ÂŁ7000 and you may need to replace the inverter, which links the panels to your domestic supply, once every 20 years. It takes around 10-12 years to get back the cost of installation. Bear in mind that the FIT has dropped dramatically over the past few years, but then installation costs are dropping too. ECOLOGY: Your household will be producing renewable energy and none will be wasted, as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fed back into the Grid when unused. Always research any major purchase to ensure you get the best deal for you. By Alison Runham www.alison.runham.co.uk

Bodnath      8 7 &

 Kathmandu By Solange Hando In the fabled city of Kathmandu dotted with so many temples and shrines, Bodnath shines above all others, protected by UNESCO and hailed as the most sacred site in the whole valley. Framed by the snowy peaks of the Himalaya, it claims one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest stupas, throbbing with Tibetan culture, almost at the heart of Nepalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital. Built around the 9th century AD, possibly earlier, as a shrine for holy relics, the 36 metre high structure is shaped like a mandala â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Buddhist cosmos - and designed to V\PEROLVHWKHĂ&#x20AC;YHHOHPHQWV from earth at the base to ZDWHUĂ&#x20AC;UHDLUDQGHWKHUDW the top. Draped in garlands RISUD\HUĂ DJVWKHFRQFHQWULF terraces rise towards the central column where the all-seeing eyes of the Buddha look in every direction. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a massive gleaming monument, whitewashed every year and blessed with saffron water at festival time. Set on the ancient trade route heading for the Bagmati river, Bodnath has long attracted Tibetan merchants. In the 1950s, when the Chinese invasion sent refugees across the border, many settled 

in Bodnath, an auspicious place where their ancestors had prayed on their way to distant lands. Today, some 50 monasteries are scattered in the area, all glistening roofs, golden banners and paintings and gardens fragrant with roses and juniper. In the nearby alleyways, silversmiths, stone carvers and sculptors turn out all sorts of auspicious items while on the edge of the stupa, one-man shops trade in Tibetan craft and Buddhist memorabilia. Tourist groups pop through the gate now and then but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stay long, a few souvenirs, a couple of pictures from a rooftop cafĂŠ and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re off. The stupa returns to its true self, a deeply spiritual place calling you back wherever you are, tinkling with prayer wheels and bells, echoing with the chanting of monks, cymbals and gongs. By late afternoon, the Tibetans arrive, hundreds of them, old folk leaning on bamboo staffs, women with babies on their back, young men with mobile phones, pretty girls chatting to their friends, child monks following their guru, others skipping around. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a daily ritual, a religious and social gathering all in one and

whether you watch or take part, you will gain merits for the afterlife. Jeans, T-shirts or Tibetan dress, all walk clockwise around the temple, VHYHQWLPHVĂ&#x20AC;QJHULQJSUD\HU beads or spinning wheels. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to gossip and exchange news, take a rest on a bench or buy grain to feed the pigeons for luck. Monks in red robes meditate in lotus position, worshippers place offerings in the alms bowls, rice, coins, bananas, green oranges, and the clapping of wooden boards sends shivers down your spine as the most devout prostrate tirelessly, all the way around the stupa. Up on the hill top, the peaceful nunnery of Kopan looks down on the scene, starting its own devotions as the sun sets over the city. But Bodnath really comes into its own at festival time, be it the full moon, Diwali - the festival of lights - or most spectacular of all, the Tibetan New Year. When darkness falls over the Kathmandu valley, myriad oil lamps glow around the stupa. Eerie VKDGRZVPRYHLQWKHĂ LFNHULQJ light, masked dancers spin DQGWZLUORQWKHĂ DJVWRQHVDQG the stirring call of long horns rises towards a starlit sky.

Chocolate and Eggs: Easter Food Superheroes or   Arch-villains?

   . Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Easter, the season of eggs and chocolate. But whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the latest advice about these foods? Do they harm or heal? EGGS Research and improved understanding means eggs are no longer a nutritional Big Bad Wolf. Packed with goodness A medium egg is very low in carbohydrates and supplies over 10% of our daily protein needs. Containing just 66 kcals and 4.6g of fat (only one third saturates), itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great source of nutrients often scarce in UK diets; around 20% of us DUH9LWDPLQ'GHĂ&#x20AC;FLHQW(JJV provide a third of daily Vitamin D requirements, around half our required Vitamin B12 and selenium, and Vitamin A, Vitamin B2, folate, biotin, iodine and phosphorous. What about cholesterol? And salmonella? Research shows that cholesterol found in eggs and other foods has a negligible effect on our cholesterol levels. Our body makes cholesterol and levels are raised by many factors. Saturated fat was the main suspect until recently, when a fresh look at the evidence cast some doubts. Regarding salmonella, the Food Standards Agency recommends, for now, that vulnerable groups should only eat hard-boiled eggs. However, a massive increase in chicken vaccination has more than 

halved infection cases. All eggs with the Lion Mark come from vaccinated chickens and all 150,000 tested during the last two years were salmonella free. Chocolate Chocolate has been accused of causing acne, obesity, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease and diabetes, among others. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not necessarily JXLOW\DQGPD\KDYHEHQHĂ&#x20AC;FLDO effects. â&#x20AC;˘ Acne.7KHUH¡VQRVFLHQWLĂ&#x20AC;F proof that chocolate causes acne; research suggests foods with a high glycaemic load may be guilty. â&#x20AC;˘ Obesity & diabetes. Due to high sugar and fat, overindulgence may show on the scales. However, recent studies show chocolate can lower your insulin resistance (potentially reducing diabetes risk). A study of 1,500 teens showed that those eating 1.5oz of chocolate daily had less body fat and more energy than those eating 0.16oz daily, so some scientists say 1.5 ounces a day may be EHQHĂ&#x20AC;FLDO WKDW¡VMXVWDVTXDUH and a half). Experts say diabetics can eat chocolate, but should monitor their total carbohydrate intake. â&#x20AC;˘ Cardiovascular health, cholesterol levels and blood pressure. Many studies suggest that cocoa KDVEHQHĂ&#x20AC;FLDOHIIHFWVRQ cardiovascular health, improving blood pressure, vascular function and blood

Ă RZDQGUHGXFLQJFORWULVN,W may lower cholesterol slightly, but only as part of a low fat diet. â&#x20AC;˘ Stroke. A study involving 44,489 people concluded that chocolate eaters were 22% less likely to suffer a stroke and 46% less likely to die from one. â&#x20AC;˘ Brain function. Chocolate can help preserve the EUDLQ¡VEORRGĂ RZDQG prevent memory decline in older people, and could be important in diseases like Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. â&#x20AC;˘ Mood. Chemicals in chocolate can raise our serotonin levels and affect other receptors in the brain that trigger feelings of well-being. â&#x20AC;˘ Migraine. While chocolate contains chemicals believed to be migraine triggers, recent data shows that some cocoa FRPSRXQGVPD\EHEHQHĂ&#x20AC;FLDO in migraine treatment. â&#x20AC;˘ Osteoporosis. The bad news: chocolate may contribute to osteoporosis. One study of women aged 70-85 found that daily chocolate consumers had lower bone density and strength. Proper comparisons havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been done between white, milk and dark chocolate, but PRVWEHQHĂ&#x20AC;FLDOHIIHFWVFRPH from cocoa content. So choose high cocoa content varieties low in sugar and fat, and eat chocolate in moderation as part of a healthy diet. By Alison Runham

Detroit Motor Show 4    Stars

James Baggott reports on the   4 

/5 big new car debuts breaking cover in Motor City /  

By James Baggott, editor of CarDealerMagazine.co.uk

It’s one of the most iconic car shows in the motoring calendar, and this year the stars were out in full force in Detroit.

benchmark’ in the segment. We’ll have to wait and see about that – but there’s little doubt they’ve got the looks spot on.

As the covers came off the cars in Motor City, we were treated to some key new model introductions and not just from the home American brands.

Toyota FT-1

The Europeans, Japanese and Koreans were all out in full force too with some stellar debuts of key cars for the UK market. Here’s our pick of the new models.

Mercedes C Class This is big news for one of the most competitive sectors in the UK market. Meet Mercedes’ new C Class, a FDUWKDW·OOWDNHWKHÀJKWWRLWV bitter rival, and better selling, BMW 3 Series. Merc has worked wonders in the cabin – the quality is stunning and will make German rivals sit up and take notice. The manufacturer says this is WKHLU¶PRVWDJLOHDQGHIÀFLHQW car ever’ and will be a ‘new (

This bonkers crazy concept was created by Toyota’s sandal wearing Californian design team – but don’t fear, it’s no hippy machine. The FT-1 stands for ‘Future Toyota’ and while it is said to be a spiritual successor to the iconic Supra and 2000GT it’s really designed to show the maker’s future design direction. There’s no word on what’s under the bonnet at present, but rumour has it it’s likely to be a traditional combustion engine with high output.

BMW M4 / M3 Nothing gets car fans excited quite like an M-badged BMW and Detroit had not one, but two of them. The M4 is the new name in the line-up – the coupe version of the performance car. There’s a new M3, now a saloon only, and both share a new sixcylinder turbo-charged unit

IRUWKHÀUVWWLPH%0:VD\V emissions and fuel economy are 25 per cent better, though, so don’t mourn the V8’s death for too long. The new 2 Series Coupe was shown off in Detroit too – but it stole little of the limelight…

Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge If the Q50 is up-and-coming ,QÀQLWL·VDQVZHUWRWKH Series and C Class, then this is the AMG or M-badged ULYDO'UDSHGLQFDUERQÀEUH and drawing inspiration from the Red Bull F1 team hookup, the Eau Rouge concept – named after Spa’s all-ornothing corner – is believed to get a 500bhp powerplant if it ever gets the go-ahead.

Porsche 911 Targa It’s a name synonymous with the 911 and has accounted for 13 per cent of all sales of the legendary model – and now it’s back. The looks won’t appeal to everyone, but the crazy roof mechanism on the 911 Targa will make grown men weak at the knees. The rear glass dome hinges back for the roof

Due in showrooms in the Spring itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely to cost a fraction under ÂŁ30,000. Quad exhausts and new front and rear bumpers mark the R out.

Audi Allroad Shooting Break Believe it or not, this is the strongest indication yet of what the next TT will look like. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to be an estate (well,

generally want to grow several individuals of the same species and I suggest you choose an odd number, perhaps three, or Ă&#x20AC;YHIRUDPXFKODUJHUJDUGHQ as this invariably makes a better display than if even numbers of plants are used. It may be tempting to plant too close and although this will provide a better looking display initially, over-crowded plants are less likely to become well established, will have to be moved in the near future and in the meantime will be more prone to numerous diseases.

snails at bay. Once you have dug over the whole bed, then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well worthwhile adding a general fertilizer. If you notice that the soil is on the heavy side, I suggest incorporating plenty of bulky organic matter and grit. Similarly, if the soil is excessively dry, then you could try to improve its texture by incorporating large quantities of any good bulky organic matter. Once the plants DUHLQSRVLWLRQĂ&#x20AC;UPWKHVRLO thoroughly and do take care not to compact it if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the heavy side. Regular watering is essential and if the ground is not already quite moist, you should water the plants in well. Check them regularly for signs of any pests or diseases as it will be much easier to stop something in its tracks if you start to take action early on in the season.



       2  /     A visit to any nursery or garden centre at this time of year will reveal a brilliant array of herbaceous perennials. Right now they might be small and not look particularly enticing but just take a look at the illustration on the label and you will see that these small plants have great potential. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also great value, usually somewhere around the ÂŁ1.50ÂŁ2.50 mark. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s essential that newly planted perennials are given that little bit of extra tender loving care. Small plants such as these are more likely to be prone to any weather extremes and even plants in larger pots should be well established. When you ease the plants out of their pots, if you see a really plentiful supply of roots that usually means you have purchased a good plant. Check the plant labels to see the ultimate spread of the plant. For the best effect you (*

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also essential to plant at the correct depth. With herbaceous perennials you need to make sure that you place the plant in the ground to the same depth that it was in the container and although you may decide to mulch the soil afterwards, do remember not to mulch right up to or over the crown of the plant, as this is likely to lead to poor growth and maybe even dieback. Weed control is essential and you can either hoe regularly between the plants to prevent the weeds causing competition or you can use a deep mulch or perhaps even place squares of landscape fabric or black polythene around each plant. Do remember however, if you use polythene, rain will not be able to penetrate through it and so the plants are more likely to suffer from drought. With landscape fabric this is not a problem. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a great fan of copper-impregnated and coated fabrics as these help to keep weeds and slugs and

The long and the short of curtains A well-designed set of curtains can complement your architecture, provide a starting point for an interior design scheme and, in general, give your room a sophisticated feel. But choosing curtains can be confusing. Katherine Sorrell explains all.

0     1   /      '  

Headings and hangings The way in which a curtain hangs is determined by its heading, often created by a tape which is sewn onto the back of the curtain and pulled to form gathers, pleats or a variety of other styles. Some headings are only suitable for certain weights of fabric and sizes of curtain. For a less formal look, however, there are plenty of alternatives. Tab- and tie-tops are often found on ready-made curtains, though they can be Ă&#x20AC;GGO\WRGUDZ&XUWDLQVFDQ also be hung from a deep hem which is simply slid over a pole, from large eyelets punched in the top, from clips (magnetic ones are easy to use) or even just from hooks. Poles, tracks, wires and rods The most straightforward way to hang curtains is from a pole, ideal for short, straight runs. Poles might EHĂ&#x20AC;[HGRUH[WHQGLQJPDGH from wood, wrought iron, steel, brass, bamboo, acrylic or glass in various diameters (for various weights of *

curtain), and are usually FLUFXODULQSURĂ&#x20AC;OHWKRXJK UHHGHGDQGĂ XWHGVW\OHVDUH also available. Designed to be on show, they require a certain amount of clearance above and below to look right (if space is limited, a ceilingmounted track is probably a better option). 7RĂ&#x20AC;QLVKRIIWKHSROHDWHLWKHU end, and also to prevent the curtains sliding off, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the option of a plain cap or a SDLURIĂ&#x20AC;QLDOV,I\RXFKRRVH YHU\GLVWLQFWLYHĂ&#x20AC;QLDOVHQVXUH that they co-ordinate with the overall style of window treatment and the decoration of the room.

metal (better-looking) and be mounted either on the wall or the ceiling above the window.

Window disguises Curtains will cover tracks but only, of course, when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re closed. When open, if you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand the look of a bare track, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need either a pelmet or a valance, usually DERXWRQHVL[WKRIWKHGHSWK of the curtain and slightly wider than the track.
