A thousand more silver taxis on streets of the capital

Rush to get cars on the roads raises problem of new drivers with little knowledge of the city and poor language skills.

ABU DHABI // Hailing a cab has become much easier after more than 1,000 additional silver taxis were put into service over the past two months, but some passengers say the new drivers are having trouble communicating and finding their way around.

The total number of silver taxis in Abu Dhabi surged from 4,200 in early November to 5,400 at the end of the year as the seven franchisees rushed to meet the fleet strength specified in their contracts with TransAD, the emirate's taxi regulator. Only three of the companies - Arabia Taxi, Al Ghazal Transport and Tawasul - have met their target of putting 1,021 cars on the road by the end of 2009, while the others - National Taxi, Cars Taxi, Emirates Taxi and Q-Link Transportation - have been given three more months to do so.

TransAD has decided to suspend the stipulated fine of Dh1,000 (US$270) a month for each taxi a company fails to deploy, "to encourage the franchisee to complete their fleet", said Huda al Kaabi, a senior communications officer for TransAD. However, if a company fails to meet its quota by March 31, the fines will be levied retroactively from January 1. TransAD is simultaneously phasing out the older gold-and-white taxis in the emirate, and has already taken more than 4,000 off the road. The remaining 4,500 will be phased out by 2012.

Abu Dhabi residents said yesterday that they found it easier to hail a cab on the street, though some were concerned that the new drivers were unfamiliar with locations around the capital. Shirley Roeloffze, 62, a South African consultant who has been in the capital for about two and a half years, said the drivers of the gold-and-white cabs were much better at taking her to her destination. "These new drivers are indeed very polite and professional, but they often have no idea of where to go," she said.

Ms Roeloffze said the language barrier was also a concern. "Thirty per cent of the time, I get into a taxi and the driver cannot speak English, does not know the directions to the place, and cannot understand when I explain the directions to him," she said. However, Alice Jarvis, a 25-year-old homemaker from the UK who moved to Abu Dhabi a year and a half ago, said she was happy with the new taxis.

"The old cabs seemed dodgy to me and I wasn't comfortable using them. But the newer drivers are courteous and I have no problems with them at all," she said. Mir Mazhar Ahmed, the Abu Dhabi manager for Arabia Taxi, who said the company had put about 400 new drivers on the road in the past two months, admitted that their knowledge of locations might be shaky at first. However, he said, he expected they would learn on the job.

The more serious side of specialty coffee

While the taste of beans and freshness of roast is paramount to the specialty coffee scene, so is sustainability and workers’ rights.

The bulk of genuine specialty coffee companies aim to improve on these elements in every stage of production via direct relationships with farmers. For instance, Mokha 1450 on Al Wasl Road strives to work predominantly with women-owned and -operated coffee organisations, including female farmers in the Sabree mountains of Yemen.

Because, as the boutique’s owner, Garfield Kerr, points out: “women represent over 90 per cent of the coffee value chain, but are woefully underrepresented in less than 10 per cent of ownership and management throughout the global coffee industry.”

One of the UAE’s largest suppliers of green (meaning not-yet-roasted) beans, Raw Coffee, is a founding member of the Partnership of Gender Equity, which aims to empower female coffee farmers and harvesters.

Also, globally, many companies have found the perfect way to recycle old coffee grounds: they create the perfect fertile soil in which to grow mushrooms.

Coffee: black death or elixir of life?

It is among the greatest health debates of our time; splashed across newspapers with contradicting headlines - is coffee good for you or not?

Depending on what you read, it is either a cancer-causing, sleep-depriving, stomach ulcer-inducing black death or the secret to long life, cutting the chance of stroke, diabetes and cancer.

The latest research - a study of 8,412 people across the UK who each underwent an MRI heart scan - is intended to put to bed (caffeine allowing) conflicting reports of the pros and cons of consumption.

The study, funded by the British Heart Foundation, contradicted previous findings that it stiffens arteries, putting pressure on the heart and increasing the likelihood of a heart attack or stroke, leading to warnings to cut down.

Numerous studies have recognised the benefits of coffee in cutting oral and esophageal cancer, the risk of a stroke and cirrhosis of the liver. 

The benefits are often linked to biologically active compounds including caffeine, flavonoids, lignans, and other polyphenols, which benefit the body. These and othetr coffee compounds regulate genes involved in DNA repair, have anti-inflammatory properties and are associated with lower risk of insulin resistance, which is linked to type-2 diabetes.

But as doctors warn, too much of anything is inadvisable. The British Heart Foundation found the heaviest coffee drinkers in the study were most likely to be men who smoked and drank alcohol regularly.

Excessive amounts of coffee also unsettle the stomach causing or contributing to stomach ulcers. It also stains the teeth over time, hampers absorption of minerals and vitamins like zinc and iron.

It also raises blood pressure, which is largely problematic for people with existing conditions.

So the heaviest drinkers of the black stuff - some in the study had up to 25 cups per day - may want to rein it in.

But as doctors warn, too much of anything is inadvisable. The British Heart Foundation found the heaviest coffee drinkers in the study were most likely to be men who smoked and drank alcohol regularly.

Excessive amounts of coffee also unsettle the stomach causing or contributing to stomach ulcers. It also stains the teeth over time, hampers absorption of minerals and vitamins like zinc and iron.

It also raises blood pressure, which is largely problematic for people with existing conditions.

So the heaviest drinkers of the black stuff - some in the study had up to 25 cups per day - may want to rein it in.

Coffee: black death or elixir of life?

It is among the greatest health debates of our time; splashed across newspapers with contradicting headlines - is coffee good for you or not?

Depending on what you read, it is either a cancer-causing, sleep-depriving, stomach ulcer-inducing black death or the secret to long life, cutting the chance of stroke, diabetes and cancer.

The latest research - a study of 8,412 people across the UK who each underwent an MRI heart scan - is intended to put to bed (caffeine allowing) conflicting reports of the pros and cons of consumption.

The study, funded by the British Heart Foundation, contradicted previous findings that it stiffens arteries, putting pressure on the heart and increasing the likelihood of a heart attack or stroke, leading to warnings to cut down.

Numerous studies have recognised the benefits of coffee in cutting oral and esophageal cancer, the risk of a stroke and cirrhosis of the liver. 

The benefits are often linked to biologically active compounds including caffeine, flavonoids, lignans, and other polyphenols, which benefit the body. These and othetr coffee compounds regulate genes involved in DNA repair, have anti-inflammatory properties and are associated with lower risk of insulin resistance, which is linked to type-2 diabetes.
