Is the A.R.T Transit Project Safe?

After Driving down Central Avenue and Seeing The A.R.T transit project come together;I noticed that the design seems to be precariously dangerous. Since the stations for A.R.T are in the middle of central avenue,users have to cross the street a major intersections to get to the buss stop,and since A.R.T is basically an two way bus lane down the middle of the street,people might use those lanes to get around when there no buses ;Like when I saw a lady walking down the empty lane with luggage.This project has had a lot of questionable things about it since the beginning,hopefully nobody will get hurt I know our pocket books are.

The Age Of Technology (By: Devin Reilly)

In the new age of technology it is hard to imagine the full extent of the potential problems that will occur from our innovative future. For instance, what happens when drones become more popular and and evasive to help carry out harmful crimes. This could lead to a scary outcomes. 

Are we going to need more security than before ? How will society deal with our new devices. Keep in mind most of our new technology has come from relatively recent breakthroughs, so it is hard to tell what truly lies ahead.

All I know is to Keep your eyes peeled and think smarter not harder, because the future is here and without a higher power it is hard to imagine the possible devastation yet to come.

How a Traveler Views Albuquerque (Mike From Oregon)

 As good a place to start as any would be an understatement.
  Coming from the Pacific Northwest I am a visitor and observer to Albuquerque.
  Artistically and aesthetically this city is alive.  No doubt about it.
  But there is also foundation and tradition that binds the more fragile and untamed together like an unspoken understanding.
  Being creative here is encouraged and dreams are truly recognised as worthy and approachable.
  Casually, a city.  Although, a break from the hunt-or-be-hunted mindset of Los Angeles.
  I say that because entertainment and media here is just more down to earth.
  As any artist struggles with an idea there is no smoke and mirrors to obscure an original intention.
  Because all are welcomed.
  Hope that doesn’t wear off Abq.

Statement from New Mexico House leader on the Passing away Of Senator Pete Dominici

Statement from NM House Republican Leader Nate Gentry on the passing of former U.S. Senator Pete Domenici

Albuquerque, NM – New Mexico House Republican Leader Nate Gentry (R-Bernalillo) released the following statement on the passing of former United States Senator Pete V. Domenici:

“I was devastated to hear of Senator Domenici’s passing earlier this morning. As we reflect on Senator Domenici’s incredible legacy, we should also recall his willingness to work with Democrats and Republicans alike to improve the condition of our state and nation. Our country would be a better place if more public officials took Senator Domenici’s approach to governing. We have lost a legendary statesman today. My thoughts and prayers are with Nancy and the entire Domenici family.”

Donald Trump administration Proves Unstable.

Housing market collapse

Since Donald Trump was elected President Of the United States there has been alot of Instability in his cabinet.Trump has gone through multiple white house press secretaries and hes fired at least 3 more of his closest cabinet members with the latest Steve Bannon, who has stated that “the trump presidency is over”.After all the mistakes Trump has made in the first days of his presidency you would think he’d be impeached by now.Time will tell but the trump presidency is far from being the best let alone the most Stable.

Lost in A.R.T by Kelly King

 

Let me preface this article with the following information… You’ve probably seen me around town with my dog. I either walk or hike an average of 42 miles every week, especially when it’s nice outside. I live within 7.2 miles of everywhere I go. That being said, sometimes I would rather take the bus due to inclement weather or I am suffering from a bad case of sleep deprivation and just don’t have the motivation to walk.

When I heard about A.R.T. (Albuquerque Rapid Transit), I could not understand how anyone aside from those businesses that are on Central could possibly be upset about this project. Of particular concern was the Nob Hill district.
Granted, I live at the beginning of the war zone. I get tired of all of the drug dealers, pot (a.k.a. chronic) emanating from apartment buildings surrounding mine, alcoholics, tweakers and hypodermic needles I continue to find in my neighborhood. As a result, I wanted to move to a complex where I would be completely dependent on the bus system in Albuquerque.
I reconsidered due to A.R.T., thinking I could put off moving for a year, knowing full well the project could become problematic at times. I just wanted to be in a quiet, safe area away from all of the crime. Then, lo and behold, what did I find?
There are orange cones and barrels for safety purposes all over Central Avenue, which seem to move every week. Bus stops keep moving. I will go to what I think is for either the 66 or 777 bus.I will be waiting awhile and next thing I know, the bus I was waiting for goes right past me. I wind up walking at least half a mile trying to find another “correct” stop. I thought I knew where the bus stops all along Central and San Mateo were, but then they were moved.
Yesterday, I took the Lomas bus to San Mateo. Then I waited for the 140 or 141 to go south bound along San Mateo. It was supposed to be a straight shot. NO! The San Mateo bus went South to Copper Avenue, headed west on Copper, southbound one block to Central Avenue, then eastbound down Central. Holy crap! Talk about frustrating.
Now there’s talk that there might not be enough money to finish the Albuquerque Rapid Transit project.WTF? Mayor Berry has no back-up plan should funding run out. Who is going to foot the bill? My bet is the taxpayers.
So, my stance is, fix whatever holes are along Central and make the city go back to the old bus system.

Trumps broad Characterization of Muslims and Hispanics as Criminals based on the actions of a very few is Morally wrong.

Trump is insinuating that Hispanics and Muslims are criminals.He is founding this argument on the isolated criminal actions of a very few people,so few that they have almost no statistical bearing.this is morally wrong and indicative of fascism and a tyrant.Martin Luther king taught us all “Judge not a man by the color of his skin,but by the content of his character”.I will not broadly characterize the vast majority of Latinos or Muslims as villains,rapist or criminals because of the crimes of an isolated few.I know in my heart that the majority of Hispanics and Muslims are honest hard working god fearing people.I will judge each person by the content of their character and I will not judge them because of alternative facts or the workings of a tyrant.I believe in America,I believe as an american it is my duty to protect my country and countrymen,but i will not sacrifice freedom for security.By going against the tide,by not following the fascist status quo of racial persecution,I am becoming an even brighter beacon of humanity and whats right and I encourage others to do the same.

It is the presidents job, duty and obligation to utilize the press of the American People. 

The constitution of The United States of America ensures freedom of the press,for the president to do anything contrary to this is a slap in the face to every American. The White House belongs to the people, and the presidency is to serve the people.Denial of the press to enter the White House shows the true character of this tyrant and we the people should move towards impeachment.

We must remember D-day and all the lives lost in the fight against Fascism, Lest we repeat it!

thmng4i6wc

On June 6th,1944, hundreds of thousands of Americans sent brave members of their family to liberate Europe and the world from Nazi Germany. The operation was called Operation Overlord, and it was the largest, deadliest and most heroic invasion in the history of the world. Thousands of American service members landed on the beaches of Normandy France facing heavy gunfire many lost their lives. The United States Led the assault because a dictator told the German people he would maker their country great again, he then took over the press and began demonizing minorities in that country, as he wanted a superior Anglo race. Most of his anger was directed to Jewish People In which he killed 6 Million Jewish men women and children. Adolf Hitler lied to his people, lied to the world, and caused World War II. The whole world united against fascism, but his axis of evil was too powerful and only the United States Could turn the tide. The whole world remembers what our country did, what our ancestors did on the beaches of Normandy that day. We sent our very best to fight for humanity, for freedom, and justice, and the fair treatment of all.
When facing the challenges we face today in our society we must remember our history. We are those troops that landed on Normandy, their spirits lives in our blood! We cannot forget what they did, and we cannot let any politicians try to make us ignorant of history or lead us to believe that oppressing people is right. We as a people must be vigilant about our rights and our culture and the national status quo in which we live. We are nation built by immigrant and defended by immigrants, we should be the most open to immigrants.
The problems facing The United States today are not immigrants, the problems are corporations meddling in our government and showing favoritism to the rich. This ruins our system, we can’t have corporations outsourcing jobs and we must tax the rich like everyone else. Our system runs off of equality and production, when there are disparities the schools fall apart, the infrastructure, the immigration system, many and many other government systems decline to inadequate funds caused by poor taxing and lack of jobs. Whatever we do, we cannot forget the reason why we landed on Normandy, the liberation of the world from fascism, hate, racism, oppression, prejudice and the destruction of the idea that all men are created equal. This is our reminder, our part of history that guides our actions for the future. We cannot forget history or we will repeat it.
