When most people travel they want to get to their destination as fast as possible. Whether this is driving down the motorway, or flying further distances. However, there is something to be said for taking a train. It’s not just a mode of transport that will take you from A to B. It allows you time to work, as well as time to appreciate the planet. Why should you start thinking about taking the train more?

Be Productive

When you travel by train it allows you to do so much more with the journey time. Rather than be stuck behind the wheel, and in rush hour traffic, your commute is yours to spend how you want to. Whether you want to get ahead in your working day, read for fun more, or even start crafting – you’ve got plenty of time. London commutes can be pretty hectic – trains to Peckham Rye can get quite full, so make sure to get a good seat to make the most of your trip.

Environmentally Friendly

When you travel by train, you’re also doing your part in helping the planet. Cars make up roughly 71% of C02 emissions. If more people get off the road and onto a train, it could help reduce the country’s carbon footprint. It can help cut down on pollution and improve the quality of air for everyone. Also travelling by train can help cut down on road accidents because it means there are fewer people driving on the road.

Admire Scenery 

There is something to be said for simply sitting back and watching the world go by. When you board a train, you get a chance to see some stunning views. Railway routes cut through the countryside, and it offers you a chance to see some spectacular scenery that you couldn’t see any other way. There are some truly breath taking journeys you should look into going on.

Get Comfortable

 When it comes to long-distance travel trains are much roomier than planes or buses. The seats are bigger and you’ve got more legroom, so it’s much easier for you to get settled and comfortable on your journey. Depending on your trip and how long you’ll be on board for, you may even get a bed to sleep in. This is a much better option than reclining your seat and hoping your neighbour doesn’t snore too much. Also if you fancy getting up and having a stroll, you’ve got much more to explore on a train. Drink in the dining cart, anyone?

There’s something special about taking the train. Even if it’s part of your regular commute, it still offers you some quality time to focus on what you need to. What’s your favourite part about taking the train.

Samuel Leeds Buys Shares In Property Tribes; Says He Wants To Make It Better

People in UK property circles may be familiar with the very public dispute between former MTV presenter, property investor, and community manager of the company Property Tribes, Vanessa Warwick, & property investment trainer and owner of the company ‘Property Investors’, Samuel Leeds; as Leeds has accused Warwick of assisting with racism and discrimination against ethnic minority tenants. In recent news, Samuel Leeds was reported to have bought a 35% share of the company Property Tribes, making him officially now a person of significant control at Property Tribes.

Warwick established Property Tribes to accumulate wisdom from various property owners and landlords to create a place of guidance for people in the industry to do business better. According to the company,

“We wanted to create a free use, safe, and agenda-free place for landlords to get information from a “hive mind”, not a singularity, so that they could learn and grow their property business.”

However, in one of his recent videos, Samuel Leeds pointed out blatant support of racism in some of the advice coming from Warwick herself. As one of the landlords asks on the forum – if they would be implicated by the race discrimination laws in the UK for refusing tenancy to Bangladeshi families as the landlord is not fond of the smell of their staple food, curry; Vanessa Warwick herself is seen advising against mentioning the reason for said refusal, thus averting the legal repercussions altogether.

In the video, Leeds points out several more situations where Warwick has behaved in a racist manner. In fact, she has become a new advisor on the panel of the UK’s Property Redress Scheme and has been under criticism in their forum as well for supporting discrimination against ethnic minorities.

Warwick also expressed strong disapproval of Leeds as a property trainer citing the reason that his students came from the “vulnerable” demographic. Leeds called out the racist mindset in this reasoning, as in reality, his students predominantly come from ethnic minorities and don’t fall in the “vulnerable” category. He began drawing attention to the issue over his YouTube channel and his website, and ended up facing severe disparagement from Warwick and her followers. Leeds finally sued Warwick for defamation and she brought a counter lawsuit for six-figure damages.

In an attempt to put an end to the battle once and for all, Samuel Leeds reports to have bought a share, 35% to be exact, of the company, Property Tribes. Even though he is only a minority shareholder and will have limited control, Leeds believes he can make a difference in “cleaning up the company” and reduce racism in the forum.

He jokingly adds,

“Because they trolled me, I wanted to at least get paid… Like Michael Jackson did to Eminem.”

Leeds pledges that any money he makes off this transaction will be donated to charitable organisations that tackle racism and online bullying. In addition, Leeds will donate an extra £50,000 to organisations that fight hatred in the UK. With this move, he is determined to take a strong stand against all discriminations in the property sector or any other industry.
