    A special issue of  Research in Transportation Economics — Volume 44, Pages 1-70 (June 2014) Road Pricing in the United States, edited by Mark Burris, just came out. We have a paper in here, but the others are interesting as well. This is behind a paywall, so if your University doesn’t subscribe, you can’t get it directly, but I am sure individual authors would be happy to send copies, and pre-prints may be online.

    A Walipini is basically an underground garden that can grow anything all year long. I liked this one as it was thought out. No bending over as the planting beds are elevated to whomever’s height. They pretty much threw in the garden sink to see how it would work out for them. What do you think? Would you place one on your property if need be? I would.

  • Adventures on Transit in the Suburbs | streets.mn

    28 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    I had a meeting at MnDOT’s Metro Division at “Water’s Edge” in Roseville. This is a short distance (though by no means non-circuitous distance) from the Rosedale Transit Center. To maximize irony (showing up at a suburban MnDOT office building by transit) and since it was a nice day, and because I have a 1 car household to begin with, and since I was not time strapped as this is summer, I took transit to get there. The new 67 bus (not a new bus, a new bus route) picked me up a short distance from my home on-time, and took me to a transfer point at Minnehaha Avenue and…

  • The Futurist Fallacy

    David Levinson
    24 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    As I occasionally write about the future in this blog, I try to keep in mind what I will call “The Futurist Fallacy” –   In the future, everyone will live and behave like  the futurist does today. Contrast this with William Gibson’s quote: “The future is already here — it’s just not very evenly distributed”, which he is reported to have first said this in an interview on Fresh Air, NPR (31 August 1993). Both of these may hold provided that the futurist is not in fact behaving the way future will turn out. Of course every good futurist will try…

    Revolution in generating energy: the Liam F1 Urban Wind Turbine After 11 years of development it has become reality: the most efficient urban wind turbine in its shape and size will enter the international market. On Tuesday the 27th of May 2014 this already high profiled wind turbine will be revealed at the Innovation Dock on the RDM Campus in Rotterdam. This wind turbine combines an austere and elegant design with an unequaled high efficiency. Based on natural forms the Liam F1 converts, with minimal resistance and almost silently, no less than 80% of the available energy from the wind into…

    Seattle’s first and only recreational marijuana store had to close on Friday after running out of stock in just three days since Washington became the second U.S. state to allow pot sales to adults. For the rest of us (besides Colorado), what a pity! I cannot even imagine having a store that sells pot muchless having the issue of running out of stock! However, even if I wanted to get involved in the selling of pot, I would have to be rich. Currently, getting a license costs anywhere from $60,000 to $500,000 so that means i am out of the running. Florida could use the extra income from…
