At least the top five cities all have somewhat respectable transportation systems, even if they aren’t always efficient (the Transit Scores only take into account frequency, type of route, and distance–but not reliability). The bottom five on the top 10 list of best cities for transportation all get a score of 65 out of 100 or lower; in other words, even the Transit Score algorithm doesn’t rank them too highly. And somehow, Los Angeles, land of cars, slides in at the No. 9 spot. The Bike Scores for the top cities aren’t too high either, but they at least never dip below 62 out of 100 in the top 10. … [Read more...] about The Cities With The Best Public Transportation In The U.S.

Bezos could also be tempted to invest in shiny new innovations that are unproven and seem like they could be an instantaneous solution to the climate crisis. But that would be a mistake. Most of the solutions for climate change, Harvey says, can come from existing technology—the missing link is policy to scale that technology up quickly, both in the U.S. and in the other countries that are the largest emitters. (Some other countries may be easier to work with in terms of policy change, because things like energy choices are seen as technical problems, not political ones, as they are in the U.S.) If he had $10 billion to invest, Harvey says, “I would put 90%-plus on policy. Because we’re out of our carbon budget. If we don’t bend curves very fast, we’re going to blow past two degrees [of warming].” … [Read more...] about Jeff Bezos, here’s how to give away $10 billion to stop climate change
Each of the vending machine’s offerings is carefully balanced nutritionally for the most health benefits. The “High Protein Salad,” for example, which includes quinoa and chickpeas, claims to offer more protein than many protein bars.

Gypsy was not the world’s first word processor, but the first word processor as you know it. Gypsy allowed the use of a keyboard and mouse at the same time. It eliminated “modes,” a trope of computation that makes software switch entirely out of one functionality to access another. For instance, in Gypsy’s predecessor, if you wanted to insert text, that was its own mode you accessed by typing “I.” You typed everything you wanted to insert at once. And then when you left insert mode, all of the new text would be inserted. … [Read more...] about A tribute to Larry Tesler, the father of user-friendly design
