The Most Critical Infrastructure Project in America

 

July 29, 2016

Paul Aucoin

In 2007, the tragic collapse of a bridge in Minneapolis kicked off a national discussion about the importance of maintaining roads and bridges in the United States. Little concern has been expressed, however, about a critical component of this nation’s infrastructure: America’s ports, arguably the economic lifeblood of the nation, connecting us to export opportunities across the globe.

Today, the greatest issue facing the nation’s ports is the need for dredging, the process of removing sediment from the bottom of shipping channels so vessels can pass through safely. In the United States, the most important dredging priority is the Mississippi River Ship Channel.

Climate Change Modeling is Closer than You Think

July 28, 2016

Don Jergler

For the last few years you got a common response from catastrophe modelers who advise the property/casualty industry when asked about including the effects of climate change in modeling.

It went something like: "The industry isn't interested in what the weather will look like in 30, 50 or 100 years, it's focused on what extreme weather will look like next year..."

Nicaraguans are using crowdsourcing technology to prove that a good map can change your life

July 27, 2016

Grace Dobush

Taking a bus in Latin America can be a disorienting experience. While the light rail systems in places like Mexico City, Buenos Aires, and Rio de Janeiro have system maps that are fairly easy to understand, most cities lack a comprehensive bus map.
Several factors have kept bus maps from taking root in much of Latin America. One reason is that bus lines running through cities tend to be operated by a collection of private companies, so they have less incentive to coordinate. Newspapers and local governments occasionally attempt to create system maps, but none have stuck...

The US is Finally Getting its First Offshore Wind Farm

July 28, 2016

BUILDING IN RHODE Island isn't easy. Hurricanes and tropical storms barrel through its quaint coastline towns, interrupting perfect summer weekends. Freezing winters bring blizzards that can shut down the entire state. And every season features corrosive salty winds, biting at the coast as if sent by a Britain still seething at the first American colony to declare independence.

But one company sees the state's incessant wind as a utility. Deepwater Wind has partnered with General Electric Renewable Energy to build the first offshore wind farm in the United States, off the coast of Block Island. Hooked up to the grid by the end of 2016, the system could supply 90 percent of the tourist destination's power within the next few years. But it hasn't been easy. Designing and building spinning fans hundreds of feet tall that stay sutured to the ocean floor in the face of currents and wicked winds has taken almost three years of work...

"Existen empresas privadas que quieren ser parte de esta alianza, un tema es la infraestructura, la conexión entre de los tres países pero hay que pensar en alianzas público privadas que se van a encaminar", dijo...
