    Clarence Falls in Love with Miami’s Metromover

    December 8, 2019


    Hey everybody, I am in Miami and I have discovered Metromover So what do I like about it first of all, it’s free and I’ve been on it dozens of times already They are small tiny cars. They come often. They’re usually very clean. It’s controlled by robots So there’s no physical driver in the pods It’s twisty and turny and really kind of fun I have a three-year-old and sometimes he gets his train sets out and designs the Coolest little loops to play on and in a way this reminds me of it It arcs through the sky You can shoot some of the greatest footage Of the city from it. As a filmmaker you appreciate some of the unique angles you can get that you normally don’t get Now more than willing to admit the cars and the whole system looks like something out of a Logan’s Run movie Or a 70’s 80’s science-fiction film Or I’ve never come to take the system and found it broken down and that some people complain the stations are less than a minute apart All these things I realize are true, but there’s a certain charm in this system I’ve never ridden anything like it anywhere and I am in love with it

    Top 10 Future U.S. MEGAPROJECTS

    November 19, 2019


    These are ten megaprojects the U.S. desperately
    needs to complete in the near future. They each represent many other projects awaiting
    approval and funding in cities and towns across America. A bullet train in Texas would help ease traffic
    in Houston and Dallas that will only get worse as the lonestar state continues to grow. A road trip from one city to the other will
    take up to 6.5 hours in the next twenty years. Modelled after Japan’s Shinkansen train,
    the Texas Central High-Speed Rail will cut that journey to just over three hours thanks
    to max speeds of 250 miles per hour. Heavy rains in 2015 breached more than 50
    dams in South Carolina, causing flooding throughout the state. It’s an emergency that will keep happening
    if the more than 600 dams rated as high-hazard aren’t modernized. Dams are aging nationwide and need more than
    $20 billion in repairs and upgrades. The Washington DC area has some of the worst
    traffic in the country. Extending the existing metro system to the
    suburbs by adding another metro line with 21 new stations will make everyone’s commute
    shorter, and will take an estimated 17,000 cars off the road. Denver has an ambitious plan to take back
    land from the interstate by plunging part of the I-70 East underground to create a large
    park with sports fields and performance spaces. The project will also modernize and widen
    the 60-plus-year-old road to ensure its structural integrity and ease congestion within the sprawling
    Denver area. Miami is already dealing with the effects
    of climate change with the installation of 80 pumping stations. But when sea levels rise just 5 more feet,
    96% of the city will be underwater, making it America’s most vulnerable urban area
    to a changing climate. To survive, it will need to significantly
    expand its levee system and build a multi-billion dollar seawall. The highly populated northeast corridor of
    the U.S. desperately needs to expand its high speed rail network to keep pace with the best
    cities in the world. Right now, the fastest train is the Acela,
    whose top speed is just 125 miles per hour. A maglev train connecting New York to DC could
    hit 300 mph and cut the commute from four hours to one. Old sewer lines aren’t properly functioning,
    resulting in raw sewage streaming into Lake Erie from Cleveland during storms. Project clean lake is a 25-year renewal plan
    that uses a variety of green methods, including the construction of seven tunnels, to solve
    the problem. To allow for more people and goods to pass
    through the Detroit-Windsor, Canada section of the border, the Gordie Howe International
    Bridge will provide uninterrupted traffic flow. When complete, the project will increase daily
    vehicle crossings by 30%. Phase 1 of California’s high speed rail
    project should open by 2030. It aims to connect Los Angeles to San Francisco
    in just three hours, compared to the nearly six hours it now takes to drive the route. It will be the first high speed rail project
    on the U.S. west coast and will eventually extend to San Diego and Sacramento, the state’s
    capitol. 200,000 daily passenger trips are made through
    the only rail tunnel connecting Manhattan and New Jersey. 100 years old and severely damaged by Hurricane
    Sandy, it badly needs an upgrade. The proposed Hudson River Rail Tunnel
    megaproject would modernize the existing tunnel and add a second one in order to ease congestion
    and wait time for commuters. This episode was sponsored by Dollar Shave
