A New Transportation Infrastructure Possibility

Hyperloop One

There is a new way we might be able to travel from one large city to another and it will be via one of the fastest tube style railway systems.  This new transportation system is currently called the Hyperloop One and it’s in the very early stages of design and testing to give us a way to travel at much higher rates of speed.  This system, if approved and installed, is set at the goal of being able to travel at a rate as high as 700 mph which would make the trip from Los Angeles to Las Vegas a ride of only twenty minutes.

Displacement Beasts

Rolls-Royce Phantom

“There is no replacement for displacement” has been uttered by more than one car enthusiast over the years and almost every time they are correct.  If you want the angriest and most powerful cars on the road they have to come equipped with some of the most powerful engines on the market to be the right choice for an exciting right.  In every aspect of our lives we want more whether it’s a bit more dessert, a little more sleep, another drink or a bigger engine with more power.  The more you get the greater superiority you feel compared to those who make use of smaller engines that just don’t come close to being what we see in this list.

Something This Unique Was Meant for the World Tour

Lamborghini Egoista

How does a concept car end up in a museum instead of making the typical show debut and then world tour?  this happens when the parent company feels the car is amazing enough to be a car that should only be displayed and shown to those who choose to make the trip to visit the museum this car is displayed in. A rare vehicle that is meant to celebrate the 50th anniversary of a car brand is one that would fit the bill to be a car that should not be offered to the public for view, but be sent straight to the museum.

The best TV cars

KITT

In television history, there have been many iconic characters.  Some of these characters have tugged at our heartstrings with harrowing dramatic stories, some have made us laugh out loud, and reality stars have made all of us shake our heads at their incredible and inappropriate antics.  The mark of a great television show is one that makes us invest our time in their characters and become emotionally involved in their lives for a half an hour to an hour every week.  A good character is missed when they’re gone; their defeats are sad and their triumphs are joyful.  Read More

Egos aside: True social media customer service

Social Media Management

Social media can be humbling, both as a novice who is just messing around and as a social media manager.  A lot of times, the temptation exists to assert ourselves and publicly shun those who question us, but as a social media manager, this isn’t the best avenue of attack.  All too often our egos want to sit in the driver’s seat and simply throw out orders, as we expect them to be followed.  However, this isn’t the way a customer service relationship works best, and social media management is, at the end of the day, a customer service profession.

Getting Mexico to pay for the wall is like pulling a rabbit out of a sombrero. It’s an illusion.

Sombrero

At the end of this article, I will declare my willingness to do something that would get me arrested if Donald Trump can get Mexico to pay for his wall. I’m 100% certain that if he’s able to win the nomination (doubtful) and then the general election (nearly impossible) that he will never be able to get Mexico to fork over more than a token portion of the massive budget required to build and maintain the wall.
