traffic jams

This weekend we make plans to exercise in more creative ways while on the road. We examine the complex world of transportation systems and the value they add — we all don’t suffer through commutes for nothing. There is a value for our efforts. And, in the spirit of traffic jams, we enjoy a video of traffic stuck on hold.


This weekend we look at how smartphones may help avoid traffic jams, the return of pickpockets (though, I don’t think they ever left) and an airline that wants passengers to gamble on changes in jet fuel costs to protect the airline’s bottom line.


A recent story that floated across my screen offering me four more days every year. Since I can always use a bit more time, I was intrigued. I never knew my GPS system was so useful. I know that I lose plenty of time sitting in traffic, but I never knew I could recoup it. Well, kinda.
