New Driving Data
The transit share of trips in Portland has declined from 2.5 percent to 2.4 percent from 2014 to 2015, I suggest this trend will continue. The share is likely down to 2.3 percent today. That data will not be published for a while, however.
The lowering price of fuel, and continued problems, delays, and inconvenience of using transit all mean that transit will continue to decline, and the self drive car is likely to steeply reduce transit use.
Canadian sniper kills an ISIS fighter from TWO MILES away
Dude! This is how to make demigods, two of them, both the shooter, and the McMillan TAC 50. For those who don't shoot, 100 yards with a scoped rifle is straightforward, easy really, 500 yards takes journeyman skills, 1000 yards is the Holy Grail, one mile is the impossible dream, two miles is a 70 virgins fantasy.

Oxford University’s reputation catches up with Cambridge for first time due to 'positive image' created by appointing first female Vice Chancellor
"Oxford University’s reputation has caught up with Cambridge for the first time, after a positive image was created by appointing its first female Vice Chancellor."
Hahahahahahahahahahahaha. It's like Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize for . . . being black.
Dear Oxford, sorry to inform you but this is a participation trophy, it is not real, and it is not for actually accomplishing anything, it is just because . . . vagina. And everyone knows that students educations are better when . . . vagina. I know mine was significantly better when I had access to a vagina, but that's an entirely different subject, I think.
Hillary was looking to backdoor one of the into the Presidency, but we told her to fuck off. Cathartic!
Top universities slip down rankings under new student-focused system
Really, the question is did the student have a good time? The total collapse of university as a place of education is just around the corner.

Travel and mobility offer vast economic benefits, Urban, and transportation planners grow congestion to steal those benefits . . .
Response to Congestion Report
. . . we know this because we are willing to pay so much for travel and mobility. But we also know that mass transit is of very little economic value, for the same reason, no one uses mass transit, and no one will pay more than about 20% of its actual cost to use mass transit.
BLM Founder: Acquittal in Castile Shooting Further Evidence That System is Broken
What this event shows us is that states need to institute training for police officers which deals with how to react to being told the detained person is carrying a weapon. While in the last post I discussed how the concealed carry holder should respond, the officer also needs a rulebook.
1. When informed of concealed carry, the officer should direct the individual to keep his hands in plain sight, in a car, perhaps the officer should say, "Thank you for informing me of that, please place your hand on the wheel in plain sight, I have a few question for you."
2. Ask the questions which I would assume would include location of the weapon, loaded/unloaded, location of drivers license/insurance card/registration, and whether this will require the individual to reach near the gun, if so, the officer might want to have the individual step out so as to disarm him.
3. The officer should inform the individual exactly what he is doing, and why and be precise in his requests, yelling louder and louder is not positive, but seems to be the method taught at every police academy.
Once the policing side has its procedure down it should make sure that all 50 states are on board, and willing to follow this procedure. Then it should make that procedure part of the required concealed carry course. This should have been done up front back in the early 1990s, but wasn't.
This woman's statements does show that if an individual has a single tool, say a hammer, pretty soon all of the things sticking up look like nails. Here this woman has adopted a racist world view that blacks are held down, so now every time she sees an event it has racial, and more commonly racist overtones. This is fiction, and damaging, dangerous fiction.
How should the concealed carry community react to the Philando Castile Shooting video?
