Dave's Gym - Featured web site

The official site for Dave's Gym is here: daves-gym.co.uk, but well worth checking out is Dave's Gym's blog at davesgymblog.blogspot.com. This honestly makes for some hilarious reading as well as being factual and informative giving you info on workouts and training going on in the gym. Dave also posts about nutritional information, breaks down what to eat and what not to, sets out structured training routines and even posts videos of others doing it for you so you can see just how its done.

For anyone who's ever been daunted by the thought of going to the gym, the sheer manner in which this blog is written really gives you a joyous outlook on training and makes it seem a lot more fun... although Dave does go into quite some detail at how much it can hurt at the time too!

Check out the comedy advert they made for the gym here:

An infograph of the most popular job sectors in Cardiff.

In the past decade Cardiff has been transformed, with employment in manufacturing decreasing and roles in IT and insurance soaring.
Despite the bad situation with dozen of jobs axed in every industry, professionals involved with Technology and Health care are demanded. Moreover city Council, NHS and University are keeping many people at work.

We are Cardiff - Featured web site

We are Cardiff - Featured web site - wearecardiff.wordpress.com

We Are Cardiff logo

We are Cardiff is a storytelling website featuring short tales from residents in Cardiff about how they came to be here, the things that attracted them to the city, likes as well as dislikes and peoples aspirations for the future.

Now celebrating over a year of publishing stories, the we are Cardiff site provides a very interesting read including “the most read story” on the site, a story of Bethan Elfyn, whom many will know from BBC Radio.

A great summary not only of the website but also highlighting many of the features which often go unnoticed in Cardiff can be found on their about us page, it reads:

“Cardiff is a little city, but at the same time, it’s a great one. You encounter any number of different nationalities on a daily basis – you see the interaction between traditional Welsh culture and its English counterpart. You see roadsigns in Welsh first, English second. We have a resident circus. We have sandy beaches and waterfalls and castles and caves within driving distances. We have abandoned nuclear bunkers, hidden tunnels underneath the city centre, an enormous stadium, a beautiful museum, gorgeous parks and old Roman forts. We have the world’s oldest record shop, coastline rich in fossils and a colourful gay pride festival. Most of all, we have a lot of interesting people that inhabit the city. This website is about them.”

We are Cardiff has regular updates and for those interested in reading about stories from the city it’s well worth signing up to their e-mail subscription, which only sends out notifications of new stories and isn’t too frequent to fill your inbox.

The site also features some very beautiful pictures of residents in the stories, often posing in places of the city poignant to their tales.

New Cardiff Monarchy (Prank)

How hard can it be to take over a county? Well not very if you go by Wikipedia standards.

Today we noticed an interesting addition to the introduction section of the Cardiff Wiki page, announcing the return of a monarchy and naming our sole new ruler!

Pretty interesting how we all missed that come into play. Yet I wonder how many school reports are going to list “Sam” as the current king?

Cardiff monarchy takeover prank 2

A quick Facebook search shows a certain someone by the same name has their birthday today which we’re guessing is a little more than a coincidence!

UPDATE: Wikipedia has already removed this addition, and entering false information can get you blocked from editing content on the website (just a word of warning)
