It’s the tourist attraction we’ve all been waiting for – a US tycoon has announced plans to build a ‘EuroVegas’ in Spain.

America’s eighth richest man, Sheldon Adelson, wants to build casinos, hotels and golf courses in either Barcelona or Madrid as part of a £14bn project to create a Spanish Sin City.

According to the Daily Mail, both cities are vying for the resort, with two sites in Madrid that each cover an area equivalent to 1000 football fields said to be in the running.

Adelson reportedly said that his company, Las Vegas Sands Corp., will decide by the summer which city to build in – if they reach a deal with Spanish authorities.

The casino mogul is said to want officials to bend the rules surrounding indoor smoking and high-rise buildings so that the ‘EuroVegas’ vision can be fully realised.

Women prefer to surf the internet rather than sex

29 Mar

We’ve read an interesting statement about internet:

Researchers asked men and women to look at a list of everyday activities and then choose the three things that they could not live without for a month.

Both men and women selected the internet and sleep as absolutely necessary to get by, but disagreed on the third essential.

While men chose sex, women instead opted for showers.

The study, carried out by Women at NBCU, supplies growing evidence that women are starting to outpace men when it comes to technology, traditionally a male interest. The organisation provides marketing and research advice to advertisers.

That’s an amazing conclusion and if that is true, tripNETer may be a VERY useful solution for women to satisfy their (internet) necesities while traveling to spain! As for men, sorry but we don’t have your solution, you may have to ask somewhere else…
