High-Speed Rail Is On The Way!

This is very exciting news. It looks like various parts of the country will be getting better transportation, and to me, that can only be a good thing. Options, people need options to avoid traffic. 

President Obama on Thursday highlighted his ambition for the development of high-speed passenger rail lines in at least 10 regions, expressing confidence in the future of train travel even as he acknowledged that the American rail network, compared with the rest of the world’s, remains a caboose.

Mr. Obama said the $8 billion for high-speed rail in his stimulus package — to be spent over two years — and an additional $1 billion a year being budgeted over the next five years, would provide a “jump start” toward achieving that vision.

The stimulus money has yet to be allocated to specific projects, but Mr. Obama said the Transportation Department would begin awarding money by the end of summer.

The government has identified 10 corridors, each from 100 to 600 miles long, with greatest promise for high-speed development.

They are: a northern New England line; an Empire line running east to west in New York State; a Keystone corridor running laterally through Pennsylvania; a major Chicago hub network; a southeast network connecting the District of Columbia to Florida and the Gulf Coast; a Gulf Coast line extending from eastern Texas to western Alabama; a corridor in central and southern Florida; a Texas-to-Oklahoma line; a California corridor where voters have already approved a line that will allow travel from San Francisco to Los Angeles in two and a half hours; and a corridor in the Pacific Northwest.

Only one high-speed line is now operating, on the Northeast corridor between Washington and Boston, and it will be eligible to compete for money to make improvements.

Daily Tune-Up: Doze Into OK

tuneupdaily5

Saturday, April 18

I’m ok. And I’m sure you are too. Though you may have moments of your life when you feel less than ok, and occasionally more than ok, the general consensus is usually ok.

And I’m here to tell you that’s not ok. Complacency is one of our biggest enemies in our spiritual work.

Don’t let yourself doze into “OK” today.

World’s Best Hotel Beds – Book Me Now

MSNBC has an article about the world’s best hotel beds, and two in particular caught my eye: 1) The bed in Kenya, which allows the guest to feel like they are (and they ARE) sleeping in the wild, and 2) The bed in Paris that’s made for sin. Check out some info below and the whole article:

Safari slumber party: Leave your teddy bear at home in favor of some real wildlife at Loisaba Wilderness, a 61,000-acre private resort located just off the equator in Northern Laikipia, Kenya. Bunk down in a four-poster, mosquito-netted Star Bed on a raised, open-air deck.   

Snooze factor: Low. Whether your Star Bed sits above the banks of the Ewaso Nyiro River or overlooks a vast, unfenced pastoral panorama, the view from your pillow — including elephants, lions, leopards, zebras, buffalo, hippos, cheetahs, giraffes, and wild dogs — is so exciting you may not want to sleep.

Suspension of disbelief: At One by the Five, a single-suite boutique hotel in the Latin Quarter of Paris, the bed futuristically floats above the ground. (In fact, almost none of the avant-garde boudoir furnishings touch the floor.)

Snooze factor: Up all night. If this sexy, ultramodern, high-tech hotel has its way, you won’t get any rest at all. From the perfume-stocked dressing parlor and the mood-lit shower to an infrared Web cam that broadcasts the bed activity (ahem) on your own closed-circuit television channel… One by the Five has a one-track mind.
