The proposed A.R.T rapid transit plan that would make central only one lane in both directions is a Joke! Instead of having a real light rail or monorail train system,the plan calls for a tacky bus with wheel covers.The plan is a good idea but unless we have a real light rail train or trolley going down central,the plan should be rejected.
As a local entrepreneur I have attempted many types of businesses in the Albuquerque metro area,most of my ventures were in the realm of online websites and blogs,over the years I have created a Vast empire of online websites and blogs,however many of them failed,as it was a learning process,and then coupled with my education in English literature from New Mexico State University I wanted to create a blog where I could just write,After making personal blogs and journals to no avail my journey suddenly blossomed into a site I just created on a whim called the DukeCityTimes.Com This site is my most prized online publication reflecting the beauty and culture found in Albuquerque New Mexico, The DUKE CITY!The growth of this online newspaper has exploded exponentially and is ever expanding into print! I don''t have enough man hours or time to handle the work alone and am always looking for people to help me write,edit,report,publish,its truly is the media publishing business at its best.So thats how it happened,I'm still an entrepreneur and I'm looking at starting other publications/ventures,but it all started with the DukeCityTimes.Com ! thank you and please stop by and visit us again! sincerely,

New Mexico obtains one third of state revenues from oil and gas.With international instability and low oil prices the state is losing alot of money.Instead of pandering to the big oil industry that is quickly becoming obsolete,causes wars,and hurts the environment; New Mexico should embrace the solar industry! New Mexico is a technology hotspot,with 2 major national labs,a space port and 2 of the best engineering schools in the country,we also have great sunshine!It’s in the best interest of new Mexico to start embracing solar energy plantations,with massive solar energy programs and plants,well not only be able to reduce the energy bills of citizens and create thousands of jobs,we can create energy and sell it to other states all the while increasing our revenue and making New Mexico an even bigger technology powerhouse.Instead of waiting for oil prices to rise in a unstable industry,lets take our future in our own hands and go solar New Mexico!

The Art of Jeremy Adonis Carlson:Prolific Artist Brings Back memories from the games we play the Games
Local artist and UNM student Jeremy Adonis Carlson has struck a chord in the local art community;his art sends us back to the days of hopscotch,Mario Brothers, Chess and Billiards.When you look at these pieces your reminded about every unique experience we all have had playing these games.Creating the art was no easy task,in fact it was daunting.The Rubik cube took around 500 hours to complete and is hand stitched,not to mention the other items like the mushrooms and the “question mark blocks” from Mario Brothers.One thing that sticks out is the metal dice on a block,this piece is just wonderful,the rusted aspect gives it an old look but yet a very classy world class look,the kind of thing you see around fine art and dining locals around town ,and Adonis makes it himself.A California native Jeremy resides in Albuquerque, New Mexico and holds bachelors of art from UNM and an Associates in Welding From CNM, He uses his welding skills in many of his pieces.You can see more of Jeremy’s art at the South Broadway Cultural Center Art Collection or at the Wheels Museum where Jeremy will be holding his Thesis Reception.If you are an art fan this show is a must!

North Korea Test Fires Ballistic “Satellite Missile”:How Long Will The International Community Allow North Korea To Advance?
North Korea has test fired a ballistic missile against U.N. security Council Agreements.The North Koreans state that the missile put a satellite into space,no satellite was detected and the world knows that they are just advancing militarily.So here’s the Question How long will the world let this violent criminal nation that kills its own people advance?
With North Korea Hiding Behind china they just recently tested a Nuclear bomb and have now tested a Ballistic Missile.The international community is in an uproar,but will anything be done? Will we wait till a major city is bombed by the North Koreans?Will the world continue to be fooled and watch the North Koreans advance?
Whether North Korea Bombs a City or we have to stop them preemptively,We are going to have to think in terms of going to war as a last resort.This could be a good thing because we can renounce and default any debt we owe China If they help North Korea,But this could be WW3, We would have to recruit India for manpower and build massive coalitions to win,but we would win.We would have to win any current wars we are fighting and consolidate all fronts,but this is the dark reality,what are we going to do If North Korea Attacks one of the allies of the United States? We as Americans must be prepared,we must have our country in order,and we must always be ready for a major confrontation like this.North Korea is Like a child with a gun,you never know what might happen.As an American the best thing I can say is that good can arise out of this at a high cost,yes we will go to war,yes many lives will be lost,but in the end,we will liberate the people of North Korea,unifying all Korea as one,we will no longer be indebted to china,our country will be stronger and richer,the world will be a safer place,and we will be victorious.I hope and pray it never comes to this,but this is the reality we must face.

The American people must be able to bear arms to insure our freedom if the government turns against the people,this is our second amendment right.Taking away advanced weapons like automatic rifles infringes on this right,If the people only have hunting rifles and pistols and a potential rouge government has fully auto weapons,the people wouldn’t have a chance.What if the there are advances in technology and the government has Laser weapons that are unlimited in ammunition and the people only have conventional firearms?The problem isn’t guns,its multiple problems with society,like injustice,corruption,racism,and the like that cumulatively lead people to boil over.We should hold the politicians accountable to do their job and improve our society instead of taking away our ability to protect ourselves like our founding fathers intended.Politician’s need to bring peace to the world,end corruption,promote equality,and be stewards of all things good,instead of being disconnected from the people,this is what will end gun violence.How would we as a people know if the government turned into a dictator ship?if there was a slow decline and people began rebelling would the government outlaw weapons to quell the uprisings or pass “gun laws”? Our power is in numbers,with the same technology of weapons,at least personal weapons as the government.God forbid America should ever have uprisings on a large scale,or a tyrannical government,but the peoples right to bear arms should never be altered,minimized or reduced because of the actions of a very few or because of leadership ineptitude to lead us into a peaceful world.we must never hobble ourselves as a people to defend ourselves.The people may not have tanks and jets and aircraft carriers,but our strength is in numbers,and our right is to bear the same rifles as the military.This right shall not be infringed!God Bless The United States Of America!
