  • Lily Maxwell, smart cities content writer for iomob.net, interviews Susan Shaheen PhD, a pioneer in future mobility strategies. She was among the first to observe, research, and write about changing dynamics in shared mobility and is an internationally recognized expert in mobility and the sharing economy.

    As the “mother” of shared mobility and someone who is well-known for working in sustainable transportation – what inspired you to work in this field?

    My desire to work professionally in environment and tech goes all the way back to high school. Sustainability, recycling and climate change were not so accepted back then and I clearly remember thinking: why does it have to be so hard to do the right thing?

    So I went to college and took as many environmental classes that I could, before doing a masters in public policy where I specialised in the environment. Then I went to washington DC to “save the world”, but I quickly realised that I wasn’t even close to saving the world there and decided that I need a higher degree.

    I wanted to figure out how we could better connect society, technology and policy, with the idea of finding alternatives that would be competitive with the existing options. It was at this point – when I decided do a PhD – that I moved towards transportation.

    I was assessing doctoral programmes and advisors in order to choose the right one for me, and I met Dan Sperling. He was doing some cool stuff in transportation and we really clicked. When he talked to me about transportation, I considered that I hadn’t really thought about this field before, but I was still a little unsure about being so specific to transportation. So I tried out some classes – actually undergraduate classes – taught by his graduates.

    And, there, I had my ‘a-ha’ moment: I thought to myself “this is it: this is the right application for what I want to do”. So I didn’t actually go into transportation until I started my PhD in 1993, but when I did, I knew it was the right thing.

  • #TeaVwatcherz - What in the 99th episode of Martin went on here โ‰๏ธ read article here via tmz: "Ray Donovan" actor Marion "Pooch" Hall& #039 ;s wild DUI arrest this week -- during which he was allegedly so wasted he let his 2-year-old steer his car -- immediately caught the attention of children& #039 ;s services ... TMZ has learned.

    Law enforcement sources tell us the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services has opened an investigation into Hall& #039 ;s case. We broke the story ... Hall was arrested Wednesday night after cops say he was driving with a .25 blood alcohol level with his son on his lap and his son& #039 ;s hands on the wheel, and it ended when his car crashed into a parked vehicle.

    Hall was arrested for DUI and felony child endangerment and the toddler was released to his mother.

    As for what the investigation could entail ... we& #039 ;re told DCFS workers will want to interview the Hall family and run Hall& #039 ;s record to see if this alleged behavior is common, or just a one-time thing.
    If it is an isolated incident, our sources say DCFS might be inclined to let the court handle any sort of punishment. It& #039 ;s further complicated by the fact there& #039 ;s no reason -- at least so far -- to remove the child from his mother& #039 ;s custody, and it appears Hall and the mother live together

  • #mondaymotivation Set Goals, Work Hard, Make them Reality! It’s only Impossible Until It’s Done. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ Great job Laura can’t wait to see you hit your next goal!๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ •
    Repost from @anhonestquad - YESTERDAY I FINALLY GOT OUT OF BED ON MY OWN!!!!! almost 2 year long goal beat! .
    I ABOUT PEED FROM EXCITEMENT. .
    .
    this was my absolute #1goal for this year and i just posted a video of me trying last week and falling. i’m sure i will fall more in the process of mastering my transfer, but knowing it’s possible now, is what matters most to me.
    .
    there is nothing more humbling than depending on others just to live or do simple tasks; like get up in the morning, go to the bathroom, help you dress, help make your food etc. .
    .
    i’m thankful for the humility it teaches me daily me as well as the drive and willpower it burns into me to push harder and work for more independence.
    .
    to all of you with a tangible goal... .
    keep trying, and failing, and trying, and failing—because eventually you will get it. .
    eventually, you will succeed.
    never give up, even when you want to.
    you will get there.
    life is a journey, and we gotta ride the waves. .
    now... to keep pretending my crazy spasms are just me tap dancing. ๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿผ
