Get a power meter, and consider TrainerRoad or Training Peaks for actual structured plans. GoldenCheetah is a good data-view tool. You'll never have that natural edge for hill climbing, but you can improve your wattage with structured training.

Yeah into Memphis Central Station. It's weird because back in the teens and 20s, the Rock Island and Frisco were both controlled by the Reid-Moore syndicate, so you would have thought that they would have shared the bridge into Memphis as well. Also, Rock had to cross over IC and back into Memphis Central.

They were only big by our standards, most countries, even in Europe, had far longer goods trains.
If only coal mines updated their loading facilities, we could have had huge trains pulled by beasts like the LNER P1 (pic related) at 60+mph.

However, because of the tiny, low capacity, and effectively un-braked wagons, the trains that these could pull were longer than the passing loops on the mainline. So these were scrapped instead.

This. It's casual, zero-hours work for people who can deal with 'we'll call you with two hours' notice a few times a week' kind of arrangements, e.g. retired people. It's exactly as you imagine it - ten, fifteen or so people show up, they drive the cars off the ship and onto the marked lane on the quay, and then a minibus shuttles them back to the ship ready to drive the next batch.

Source: passed them doing this on my way to work many times, back when we were in the office. It's like seeing a glitch in the Matrix, where a handful of identical cars all pass you one after the other lol

is it safe to travel thousands of miles in an RV that cost 7,000 dollars? or should i be expecting to break down a few times? what's a reasonable price i can get an RV to travel the country in? also i live in the united states.

Did you know that the original Model T ran on ethanol?

Then when the 18th Amendment passed, they couldn’t make alcohol-based fuels anymore. It was like a deus ex machina for the petroleum industry.

> In 1925, Henry Ford tells The New York Times that ethyl alcohol is "the fuel of the future" which "is going to come from fruit like that sumach out by the road, or from apples, weeds, sawdust -- almost anything. There is fuel in every bit of vegetable matter that can be fermented. There's enough alcohol in one year's yield of an acre of potatoes to drive the machinery necessary to cultivate the fields for a hundred years."

The S. Korean market regulator signaled such merger is completely out-of-question when it was floated by Asiana's creditors three years ago, but it's now saying it will be allowed given the fact that the airline industry as a whole will shrink not just in the short term but also in the long term.

How do you feel about this? Would other countries follow suit? What if United and American merged? What if Delta with Southwest? Emirates and Etihad? Lufthansa and AFKLM? EVA and China Airlines? Would IndiGo buy out GoAir and Vistara?

Not unrealistic, but I doubt it would happen without any kind of anti-trust investigation.
>What if Delta with Southwest?
Totally contrasting business models. Southwest would be better suited merging with Spirit, but really not Delta.
>Emirates and Etihad?
Unlikely, and I doubt the UAE would stop the Dubai-Abu Dhabi rivalry.
>Lufthansa and AFKLM?
Lufthansa Group is massive enough, and is now largely German state owned now. It's also the core member of Star Alliance, while AF-KLM are also pretty massive and are the core member of SkyTeam. EU would never let it happen, both corporate conglomerates would also never go for it.
>EVA and China Airlines?
Similar airline alliance mess, but Asia is probably a bit more resilient.
>Would IndiGo buy out GoAir and Vistara?
Idk. Don't Indian airlines go bankrupt all the time?
>>
If there's going to be consolidation among the major US carriers the weakest of the Big 3, which would probably be American right now, will get split up between United and Delta, kind of like how Conrail got split between CSX and Norfolk Southern (as opposed to one company absorbing all of it)

Regardless of how it went down, one of the major airline alliances would stand to lose a lot of market share, it might completely shake up that sector as well.
>>
KE-OZ merger is now going ahead. Star Alliance is going to lose a major member in Asia.

Does anyone else have the problem of running out of places to ride? I'm mainly speaking to Sunbelt cyclists here.

My city's Southside is awesome for bikes but I feel like I've rode all there is to ride in it this year, and the other parts of the city are either ghetto (with shit roads) or suburban with giant roads and speeding cars.

You can't escape a burning plane at 10 km altitude either. How many planes catch fire in mid-air? Not much.

>>
>>1575285
a plane can divert to an alternative destination. airports are basically everywhere except the sea, and in the last resort you can still try to land in the sea or on any flat strip of land.
plus you've still got limited options for aerial firefighting: you can try to blow out a fire on the outside of the plane by diving to increase speed, and you can open the cabin doors after depressurizing to let smoke exit the cabin.

by contrast, a train would need new purpose built stops to be able to evacuate between stations, and opening the passenger doors into a vacuum to clear cabin smoke would kill everyone on board.
>>
>>1575289
>vacuum
>would kill everyone
Its just depressarization
Its the same problem that requires oxygen masks.
Don't forget we live in a world where its possible to get safety certification on CO2 fire extinguisher systems on boats, that literally kills people on activation.

>and yes. If the NYPD was 50% defunded it would just literally not have been 'completely abolished'.
NYT - and therefore mainstream lefties - seem to think that qualifies as "abolishing", judging by their headline, so I'm afraid you're on your own on this one.

If you somehow think that "only" eliminating half the NYPD would somehow be a good thing, you can check for yourself how it's been going:

http://compstat.nypdonline.org/
>>
>>1575217
abolishing is a non-literal term
In that case, one which is explained as such.
'completely abolishing' is a literal descriptor. One which was not clarified.
this is devolved into absolutely nonsense semantics.

and newspaper headlines are famously disingenuous, they're sensationalist clickbait. What you're forming your argument around now is clickbait. Believing clickbait is one thing, re-iterating it and holding the entirety of your political opponents to it is another. Even when explicitely they say otherwise under the headline.

and AGAIN

So, hear me out. What if, after this COVID stuff, they brought back flying boats as a luxury flying experience, just like they did with the Orient Express? Not first class jetliner prices, but several times a normal ticket for extravagant service and spacious accommodation. No one takes the Orient Express for speed, the same should work for a giant flying boat experience. Just imagine seeing this massive beast floating lazily through the skies. Magnificent.
