Video response: city driving charge and Paris bike sharing I think the idea of charging cars for driving in the city is a very aggressive way to try and decrease city traffic congestion. In my opinion it is something that can only be implanted where a very efficient public transportation system is already in place. Also I can’t help to think about how people are going to try and get around this, potentially creating a grey/black market that applies techniques to avoid detection to cars. I do not like how in the video they replaced the lack of cars with more buses. Sure this may be greener but as they were saying, many buses are very empty during certain times of the day. I can’t help to wonder the added stress the buses have on the roads, since they do weigh more than a typical car. I believe London has the potential to become a very sustainable city, especially if they continue to implement radical concepts such as this city charging drive. It shows they are serious about becoming more sustainable and even though it may anger some of the public; it conveys a powerful message of environmental awareness by the government. Paris’s Velib system is something I find quite genius. I am a big fan of bicycling, even though I prefer off road cycling. Biking instead of using cars or other modes of transportation is beneficial in a couple different ways. First off bikes are completely carbon neutral, making it one of the most environmentally friendly modes of transportation. Also I think that a large system of bicycle sharing also benefits society by making it healthier. I will never forget my time in a town on the out skirts of Amsterdam where bicycling was the preferred method of transportation. First off the entire town seemed to be incredibly fit, it was almost surreal how healthy everyone seemed to be. Second there were almost no cars out at night, everyone road bikes. One moment I will never forget is stepping out of the bar and walking up to a mountain of bikes piled one on top of the other, mine was somewhere in the pile. I ask somebody what I should do and he
and others they have written contain the themes that they do. Margret and H.A. Rey had a very rich and tumultuous life before publishing their first children’s book. Their Jewish heritage during an age of war against Jews and the subsequent escape by bike to safety inspired a lot of George’s narrow escapes from trouble after being too curious. They are husband and wife and also a fully self-dependent author illustrator team. The illustrations across all of their books reflect a…
in its particular economic model, it is unlikely to have the same economic contributions as is it has in the countries listed below.
Europe and Japan, HSR has had success in capturing market share from commercial aviation. For example, rail has captured 90 percent of the air/rail market between Paris and Lyon (a distance of 267 miles, with a fastest scheduled rail trip time of 1 hour 55 minutes), 85 percent of the air/rail market between Tokyo and Osaka (a distance of 320 miles, with a fastest…

the shadow of Seattle’s futuristic landmark, the Space Needle. Set in a multicolored, globular Frank Gehry-designed building that looks like a cut-up guitar (a “ridiculous . . . monstrosity of postmodern architecture” is another writer’s take), it shares the space with the Experience Music Project, a museum for rock and roll music. The odd juxtaposition of the two museums is actually quite simple: science fiction and Jimi Hendrix’s music were the two boyhood loves of Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen…
