London’s New Bus

The New Bus for London will use the latest green technology when it launches in 2012. It will meet London Buses’ requirements for vehicles in public service in London, including high standards of accessibility, safety and emissions abatement.

In addition, it will be more durable, more fuel efficient and better ventilated. The bus will incorporate a double-deck and a platform at the rear near-side corner, so passengers will be able to get on and off easily.



How to change to the other side of the road without a massive crash

Hong Kong drives on the left side of the road, mainland China on the right. So how do you prevent crashes when driving between them?

To quell confusion at the border and, more importantly, to keep cars from smashing into each other, the Dutch firm NL Architects proposed a brilliant, simple solution, the Flipper bridge.

We’ve had a lot of rain here in NH lately. So much so, that a huge puddle formed in front of our house. So we did what any good parents would do – had our daughter stand in front of it while we drove the car through it! Lila was pretty surprised at how high the wave of water was.

I love her laugh after the splash.

Thanks Darryl and Jenn
