In this paper we show that the cosmological standard models can describe our universe very realistic way if we add a positive value of the cosmological constant, without the need for the introduction of cold dark matter. Also we clarify that it is physically allowed objects to move in the Universe at speeds greater than light speed without violation of Einstein's postulates.
