Diesel gives gig air of authenticity

A big bash was also thrown on Friday by jeanmaker Diesel to celebrate its new shop at On Lan Street in Central, although the party itself was held on the top deck of the new ferry pier.

More than 2,000 people crammed in to check out Kanye West's Chicago rapper buddy Rhymefest (right) throw down a set with DJ Jus Ske.

How it works

The Environmental Protection Department says it has obtained 100 per cent accuracy from its emission-detecting system by placing two sets of sensors 10 metres apart. The department said California had adopted the same method, which it calls a dual remote sensing unit, and put it into practice this year.

Outlaw idling engines

I have some suggestions for the Secretary for the Environment, Transport and Works, Dr Sarah Liao.

Earlier this month I observed two youths go down Nathan Road, opposite the police station and brazenly stick posters on lamp-posts.

Motor disservice

Drivers who keep their vehicle engines idling while they are parked are a common phenomenon in the SAR.

These drivers always seem to wait for people or take a nap in their cars.

But they don't think idling engines cause air pollution.

They only think of their comfort.

Selfish neighbours making pollution worse

Last October 1 wrote to these columns on the matter of air pollution in general, and idling engines in particular.

Since then, numerous letters and articles have appeared in this paper, and the Environmental Protection Department even said that it was looking into the matter, with a view to doing something about it.

Health taken for a big ride

TRANSPORT is very essential in daily life. We will feel very inconvenient without cars, buses, trains, ferries and aircrafts.

Dense fumes in tunnel

I AM concerned about the atmosphere inside the Tate's Cairn Tunnel.

The air is thick with the exhaust fumes from cars and the fumes are especially concentrated in the middle part of the tunnel.

The worst time is around 2pm, when a pungent smell reaches the noses of tunnel users.
