Reading Time: 3 minutes

MELBOURNE, Australia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The leading Tycoon Global blockchain real estate group announced to have
accomplished the land delivery of a new project valued $ 4.5 million.

Tycoon Global planned to establish 6 villas on this block of land, and
each villa includes 4 bedrooms, 3 toilets and 2 garages. It is located
in the bustling Upper East Side in Melbourne and with the good natural
conditions, which has become one of the best areas in Melbourne. As real
estate is the key to developing business hub in the State of Victoria,
Australian Government has already invested 600 million Australian
dollars for upgrading the living facilities in this area since 2016.

The real estate project is adjacent to the largest shopping centre,
Eastland Shopping Centre in the East Area of Melbourne. A total of 350
stores offering everything from luxury goods to daily home products are
located in this shopping centre, and moreover, the people here can enjoy
the foods from all over the world. In addition to that, this shopping
centre is rapidly expanding, which is also an interesting proposition
for all the potential investors setting their eyes on the adjacent real
estate plot.

The owners of dwelling units in this area would also have access to lots
of high-quality educational institutes, including primary schools and
middle schools, such as Eastwood School, which is only 280m from the
project area, and Tintern School, which is only 680m from the project
area. The real estate project also boasts of very convenient
transportation options, as the closest urban rail transit station is at
only 12 minutes of walking distance, and the entrance of M3 eastern
expressway is only 1,200m from the project area.

The ambitious real estate project is already in high demand due to
multiple advantages. According to the REA 2018 statistical data of the
largest real estate data company in Australia, the average demand of the
real properties on this plot has 220% of the average demand in the State
of Victoria.

Dr. Zhong Jian, CEO of Tycoon Global, showed that this project was
planned to be launched in June 2019 and the sale will officially begin
in July. Each individual villa will be priced at around US $750,000,
which makes these some of the most exclusive and valuable properties in
Victoria for self-occupation and investment. Besides, this project
accepts payment of TCT (Tycoon Chain Token). This also reflects the
Tycoon Global principle of landing first and zoology second.

Tycoon Global will keep conducting real estate development and reforming
the traditional real estate industry chain with blockchain technology
based on the excellent profitability. “Sustainable profitability is the
basis for us to embrace the new technology to update the industry chain
of real estate, and it also makes us different from other blockchain
companies.” said Dr. Zhong.

GEICO’s Tips for Sharing the Road with Motorcycles

Business Wire

Published

on

Reading Time: 2 minutes

WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/Bikes?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#Bikeslt;/agt;–As the summer months approach, millions of motorcycles will be hitting
the roads. GEICO
wants to remind you that motorcycle safety is everyone’s responsibility.

In spite of all the available motorcycle-training courses, reflective
clothing, and protective gear, one of the biggest threats to
motorcyclists is all the other drivers on the roads and highways.

Drivers that have experienced close calls may have completely failed to
notice a fully visible object like a motorcycle because their attention
was engaged on another task. This is known as inattentional blindness.
Making it harder for a vehicle driver to judge the distance of a
motorcycle approaching is the bike’s smaller size and speed.

Congested roadways, vehicles changing lanes or turning, and distracted
driving are among the factors that cause many of the preventable
motorcycle fatalities each year. Even though the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration reports the number of motorcycle
fatalities dropped from a high in 2016 of 5,286 down to 5,172 in 2017,
the proportion of motorcyclist fatalities relative to all
traffic-related fatalities has more than doubled over the past 20 years.

Tips for sharing the road with motorcycles to make it a safer ride
for everyone:

  • Be patient, especially at intersections.
  • Look twice for motorcycles.
  • Always assume motorcycles are closer than they appear to be.
  • Use your turn signals and check your blind spot before changing lanes.
