California highways top worst roads list

Posted On Jan 6 2020 by

first_imgCalifornia’s drivers are stuck in some of the nation’s worst traffic with state highways that are so clogged, poorly paved and costly to maintain that they rank seventh-worst in the nation, according to a report to be released today. Perhaps coming as little surprise to motorists, the annual highway performance report by the Reason Foundation has consistently found California’s roads among the most miserable in the country. “There’s lots of traffic, relatively high costs of doing business and increasing truck traffic. And not much room for freeway expansion,” said study author David Hartgen, a retired professor of transportation studies at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. And that increasingly desperate need for roomier roadways – in already densely populated areas – is putting growing pressure on communities. Caltrans wants to widen freeways to the maximum extent possible. That means six lanes in each direction – like the San Diego (405) Freeway expansion under consideration now through the Sepulveda Pass, said Doug Failing, Caltrans director. Plans for that project include adding a northbound carpool lane and changing the width of lanes heading south to make room for one more. But the plans include wiping out up to 37 homes and businesses to make the extra room. And the use of eminent domain in doing so has some concerned. Opponents say they’re being forced out of their longtime neighborhoods and that adding a lane will only shave a few minutes off commuting times. “If you’re going to do this expansion that will save drivers eight minutes, do you really need to do this?” said Rev. Janet Bregar of Brentwood Glen’s Village Church, which is slated to be razed for the expansion. It’s unclear whether the region will see the use of more eminent domain to make room for road expansion, but Failing said it’s always a possibility. “We’re trying to find ways to use less eminent domain, because it is a last resort,” Failing said. “The last thing you want to do is take someone out of their house.” California has lagged on building roads for years because there was always the hope that people would switch to public transportation. But the dream has never taken off, said Peter Gordon, professor at USC’s School of Policy, Planning and Development. “It was kind of a dumb idea and it didn’t work,” Gordon said. “So here we are.” While taking 37 homes and businesses seems extreme, it’s far less than what has been done in previous situations. Thousands of homes and businesses were razed when freeways were first built in the region, said Martin Wachs, director of the Transportation, Space and Technology program at the Rand Corp. But ensuing community opposition has slowed freeway expansion as politicians and transportation officials are more reluctant to disrupt communities with eminent domain, Wachs said. Still, he said the trade off is that the area will see traffic congestion become progressively worse. “We have to choose between one or the other and increasingly we’re more willing to accept community as the priority,” Wachs said. “As a consequence, transportation systems get more congested.” To get Los Angeles moving in the right direction, tolls should be charged for driving on freeways, with prices varying by time of day, said Gordon. Gordon said such a concept would be a better use of roads and bring in money to build more. “We understand early bird specials and pricing that works with demand,” Gordon said. “But that’s not the way we run our roads, and that’s exactly the problem we’re whining about. “We created our own mess.” Even with the use of eminent domain, most transportation experts agree that simply building more lanes will not answer the region’s traffic woes. In the future, ramp meters on freeways and traffic signals that work together to move blocks of cars will be relied on more to keep people moving. Failing said the region needs a mass transit system that more people use. And the area needs clusters of housing and jobs around transit stations. “There’s a whole series of things we need to do,” Failing said. “Just building isn’t going to do it.” sue.doyle@dailynews.com (818) 713-3746 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Spurs transfer news: Galatasaray set to sign 24-year-old Pochettino target

Posted On Dec 29 2019 by

first_img Mainz playmaker Yunus Malli 1 Galatasaray are set to pip Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund to the signing of Yunus Malli, according to reports in Turkey.The Mainz playmaker has struck 10 goals in the Bundesliga this season and is now on the radar of a number of heavyweight clubs in Europe.Tottenham have been tracking the 24-year-old since last summer but the form of Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen this season has decreased Mauricio Pochettino’s desire to sign another playmaker.That has allowed Galatasaray to move to the front of the queue in the chase for Malli and, according to Fotomac, the Turkish giants are close to agreeing a deal with Mainz for the player.Tottenham may reignite their interest should the Turkey international impress in this summer’s European Championships but the north London club are honing their focus on signing a striker this summer rather than another creative midfielder.last_img read more

Why Arsenal playing Saturday 3pm game is good for them and bad for Wolves

Posted On Dec 25 2019 by

first_imgArsenal fans may be fearing the worst when they host Wolves on Saturday, LIVE on talkSPORT 2.Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have a strong record against the Premier League’s ‘big six’ clubs. The Spaniard could be forced to leave out captain Granit Xhaka, who was jeered by his own fans when substituted in Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace.The midfielder responded by cupping his ears at the Emirates faithful, before telling them to ‘f*** off’ and storming straight down the tunnel.Xhaka was left out of the matchday squad for Arsenal’s Carabao Cup exit to Liverpool on Wednesday, a decision which Emery claims was always planned.On Tuesday, when asked if Xhaka could lose the captaincy for his actions, Emery said: “At the moment, I am not speaking and I don’t want to speak about that.“Now he is upset, devastated and sad. It is not only yesterday and today. He is feeling the supporters don’t like him.“His commitment with the club is a great commitment every time. He wants to help.“His behaviour was perfect in training, with the group and with the club. He knows he was wrong.“He was wrong and he feels it inside very deeply. But that is normal as a human.”Saturday is GameDay on talkSPORT as we bring you THREE live Premier League commentaries across our network, including Arsenal vs Wolves 1 There could be more scenes like this at the Emirates when Arsenal play Wolves on talkSPORT 2 Barnsley vs Bristol City (Friday, 7.45pm) – talkSPORT 2Bournemouth vs Man United (Saturday, 12.30pm) – talkSPORTWigan vs Swansea (Saturday, 12.30pm) – talkSPORT 2Arsenal vs Wolves (Saturday, 3pm) – talkSPORT 2Watford vs Chelsea (Saturday, 5.30pm) – talkSPORTCharlton vs Preston (Sunday, 12pm) – talkSPORT 2 Live on talkSPORT The weekend starts with talkSPORT where SIX games are live across the network Getty Images – Getty In their first season back in England’s top flight last year, Wolves beat Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea, while securing impressive FA Cup victories over Liverpool and Manchester United.And this season has been no different with a shock 2-0 win over Premier League champions Man City and a credible draw with United.But despite Arsenal’s inconsistent performances under manager Unai Emery of late, which saw them surrender two-goal leads against Crystal Palace and Liverpool in the space of three days, the club have a very good record when they play at the Emirates on Saturday at 3pm.The Gunners have not lost a home 3pm kick-off since Aston Villa beat them 3-1 on the opening day of the 2013/14 season.A Christian Benteke brace and late Antonio Luna strike got Arsenal’s campaign off to the worst possible start.Since that shock defeat, Arsenal have won 20 games and drawn just twice in 3pm home kick-offs.That is a good omen for the club and Emery, who is in desperate need of a positive result this weekend.last_img read more

Blitzbokke sparkle in Mandela Bay Sevens

Posted On Dec 18 2019 by

first_img9 December 2013Backed by a 32 000-strong crowd, the Springbok Sevens team scored an emotional 17-14 victory over New Zealand in the final of the Nelson Mandela Bay Sevens in Port Elizabeth on Sunday.In a stadium bearing the name of the recently deceased and much-loved former president Nelson Mandela, the crowd helped lift the Blitzbokke out of an early 0-14 deficit and on to a deserved victory, which they dedicated to the iconic statesman.Ironclad defenceThroughout the event, the South African team’s defence had been ironclad, while the side was also very effective on the attack. In the final, the team’s aggressive defence carried them to the title as New Zealand, after their two early tries, were kept pinned in their half.Branco du Preez brought South Africa to within two points of the Kiwis at the break by using his fast feet to cross for two tries and after the break, captain Kyle Brown crossed for the match-winning five-pointer.His winning score came after the Blitzbokke had forced New Zealand to kick for touch from their own try line. After claiming the throw-in on the 22, Brown, instead of passing back to the scrumhalf, spun towards the sideline, handing off a would-be tackler and ducking beneath a second tackle, to find his way to the try line open.Still, South Africa led by only three points. New Zealand, though, could not escape the pressure of the Springboks’ suffocating defence and the Blitzbokke provided coach Neil Powell with his first win since he took charge of the team at the beginning of the HSBC World Series.‘We needed to be close’“We needed to be close to New Zealand at the break, so when we scored late in the first half, it meant a lot to the guys,” Powell said after the game.“It is an unbelievable feeling. Credit to the guys in the squad. I think they showed a lot of character out there tonight and I’m really proud of each and every one of them, and the management as well.”Powell said “Madiba Magic” helped his team to the title. “It was a very emotional weekend for all South Africans,” he said,” but we realised that we needed to do it for his memory and for ourselves. We could only do it by playing as a team and playing for each other.”‘We had to dig deep’Springbok Sevens captain Kyle Brown praised his team mates for their special effort. “We were all desperate for a good result and knew that we had to do this as a team. We had to dig deep to come back, but I never doubted the character and will to win,” he said.“This is a special win and we cannot thank the crowd enough for their support. It was also important for us to keep improving and following our fourth place at the Gold Coast and second spot in Dubai, a win here justified the hard work the squad has put into training.”ResultsThe Blitzbokke comfortably topped their pool on the first day of the event, defeating Canada 24-7, Spain 38-0 and Kenya 27-7.On day two, they were in scintillating form, thrashing Portugal 45-0 in the quarterfinals and Argentina 31-0 in the semi-finals before edging the Kiwis, whose closest game before the final had been a 19-5 win over Samoa in the semi-finals.New Zealand continue to top the World Series standings with 58 points, but their lead over South Africa is down to only two points. Fiji are in third place with 48 points and England are fourth on the log with 40 points.last_img read more

HTML5 Shows Promise, While Android Tablets Confuse, Developer Survey Finds

Posted On Dec 16 2019 by

first_imgRole of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology In January, prior to Android OS’s launch on commercial tablets, developers said that pricing was the most important issue to consider. And indeed, Android tablets that were priced higher or equivalent to the iPad have not sold well, it seems.But now, developers see other issues as even more important than price, including the need for user interface improvements, phone to tablet portability, fragmentation problems, increasing the size of the app catalog and more. These can be seen in either a positive or negative light, depending on your particular viewpoint. For example, Appcelerator says that these suggestions could now indicate that in developers’ minds, it’s a question of “how” Android Tablets will succeed, as opposed to an “if.”More details on the survey results can be found on Appcelerator’s website here. But even though Android Tablets rank well here, Appcelerator says that mobile developers are confused by the Android Tablet space, which remains fluid in terms of the changing nature of the OS itself, the hardware and the form factor requirements. This confusion is reflected in the historical chart (below) which tracks developers’ interest over time. Related Posts sarah perez Appcelerator & IDC’s new mobile developer survey is out now, with details on a wide range of development trends including platform choice, developers’ future plans and mobile industry challenges. Notably, the companies have now added HTML5 as a new option to rank among mobile development platforms, and its middle-of-road showing indicates that mobile websites are increasingly a complementary requirement for today’s mobile developers.Meanwhile, despite seeing a slight jump back to Q1 levels of interest, Android tablets remain a platform with a number of challenges, developers report. Explains Appcelerator, these tablets are in somewhat of a “no-man’s land” in terms of developer priorities right now, as developers aren’t sure what to make of the overall Android Tablet picture.Ranking the PlatformsOne of the big questions the survey always asks developers is where each platform ranks in terms of developer interest. As expected, iOS (iPhone, iPad) are doing well, with 91% and 88% of developer interest respectively, as is Android (Phone), with 87% interest. The Android Tablet platform still ranks high, too, with 74% saying they’re “very interested” in developing for that platform. HTML5 comes in 5th (66%), above Windows Phone, BlackBerry, webOS, Symbian and MeeGo.

How the wolf became the dog

Posted On Dec 1 2019 by

first_imgScientists who study canine origins seem to fight about everything: where dogs arose, when this happened, and even the best way to find these answers. But there’s one thing most of them agree on: how dogs became domesticated. Dogs, the thinking now goes, domesticated themselves, with the tamest wolves able to approach ancient human campsites and feast on leftover carcasses. New findings from an unprecedented collaboration of geneticists and archaeologists are adding insight into how dogs became domesticated, as is a new study, which shows that dogs have hijacked the same hormonal pathway human mothers use to bond with their infants.To read the full story, see the 17 April issue of Science.For more on man’s best friend, see Science’s latest coverage of doggy science.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)last_img read more
