“Buy-America” Senator complains passenger rail costs are too high

1 Share

Senator Chris Murphy is the author of various Buy-America bills over the past decade. It is one of his top priorities — and yet he can’t understand why HSR costs are so damn high:

This the same Senator who killed a plan by Amtrak to build a 30-mile bypass around the slow tracks along the Connecticut shoreline. The bypass would have reduced NY-Boston travel time by a remarkable 20%. Amtrak proposed building the route inland through open terrain, so as to keep construction costs low. However, the Senator demanded the route stick to the same curvy ROW where it will be very costly and complex to do any speed improvements.

If the Senator wants to discover the reason US high-speed rail costs are so much higher, he can start by looking in the mirror.

Portable Monitors. Any good?

1 Share
From: Techmoan
Duration: 11:00

A test of a portable monitor. Handy for dual-screen laptop use, a stow-able TV (when paired with a HDMI source) or a compact gaming screen - especially when it comes to the Nintendo Switch which can output to it in 1080p over USB-C. It's definitely not perfect though.

Here are some links to the one I bought - look out for deals and vouchers and also have a look through the alternatives that show up - It's almost certain this is not the best one available.
AMAZON AFFILIATED LINKS
UK: https://amzn.to/2UHTUKJ
US: https://amzn.to/3kzULIv

EXTRA INFO
No I haven’t got the stand the wrong way around
Yes it shows it like this in the manual - there’s pictures and everything.
No it won’t fit any other way (notice that the bottom rear of the screen is wider than the top and also isn’t magnetic - therefore the cover can’t be flipped over or orientated in any other configuration)
Don’t believe me? - buy one, you’ll find out.

Regularly asked question
Q) Why are there comments from a week ago when this video has just gone live today?
A) Patrons https://www.patreon.com/techmoan usually have early access to videos. I'll show the first version of a video on Patreon and often the feedback I get results in a video going through further revisions to improve it. e.g. Fix audio issues, clarify points, add extra footage or cut extraneous things out. The video that goes live on youtube is the final version.

Anti-utility. I think there may be other examples of this.

This is his original shelter pic. Harley was on a kill list 3 separate times before being rescued. Each time someone would reserve him, and then back out, until his current human fully committed to saving him ❤️ pic.twitter.com/6o9dE5pYpo
