    Anybody been to Naxos recently and/or know how much rental of a scooter or small motorbike would cost? I don't need precise answers but an approximate idea so that I can budget would be helpful. I'm planning to arrange this once I'm already there, but I can't get the info on a web search. Just so I know whether I am looking at 5 euros or 25 euros a day - I have no idea. Also if I am likely to need to place a deposit. Many thanks in advance!

  • Is there a bus service between Corfu Airport (Greece) and the ferry port?

    I can't get this information on a google search. All the travel sites recommend taking a taxi. But I find buses more interesting, and cheaper too.

  • Do I have any rights as a self-employed piece worker in the uk?

    Every week I spend between two and four days per week doing, let's just call it 'sorting aerofoils' for a flying club. It is technical work, for which I have special skills, but it is also backbreaking work. Depending on the season and weather I may do no work at all, or work 16+ hours a day. Either way, I still have the cost of travel,... show more
    Every week I spend between two and four days per week doing, let's just call it 'sorting aerofoils' for a flying club. It is technical work, for which I have special skills, but it is also backbreaking work. Depending on the season and weather I may do no work at all, or work 16+ hours a day. Either way, I still have the cost of travel, food, insurance, membership, etc etc. If I take a break, or a holiday, or get sick, I get nothing. I am not required to be there, I get paid for every aerofoil sorted, and it is take what you can get. As a contractor, I believe I am allowed to negotiate over rates. However, I am not sure that I am a contractor, because arrangements are slack, and nobody requires me to be there. Whether and when I turn up, and when I leave, is entirely up to me. However, priority is given to those workers who commit (which may constitute some form of contract?), and the club does try to get us to prioritise certain aerofoils to sort over others. Nevertheless, there is always a backlog, and not enough willing sorters to do the harder parts of the work on time, as inflation has made the pay insufficient per aerofoil sorted. While I am there I take on some private work out of necessity, and too much of this is frowned upon, although not forbidden. So when I tried to discuss the fees for the work, which have not increased in over ten years I was completely stonewalled and invited to leave. Yet the company sets the rates, decides the method of payment, provides the paperwork. Effectively I feel like they are dictating terms, but with no regard for my welfare whatsoever, and their aloof attitude lets them get away with it. I have given blood, sweat and years to these people. I can't believe that a university education and many years of training have led to this - these are medieval working conditions, in Britain, today. Do I have any employment rights? How do I find out about them? And, more importantly, is there an effective way in practice to get those rights enforced. I cannot afford a lawyer.

  • How do I leave Yahoo Pulse?

    What is Yahoo Pulse? I seemed to become a member without being asked at any time, with loads of personal info being made plain to clients, associates, I never expected or asked for that. What is it, and how do I opt out of it? All I really want is an email account. Have Yahoo breached my rights, and what can I do about it?
