Spoiler alert: it’s SLOW.
About three years ago, I argued that MTA should increase service on the IND Concourse Line (the B and D trains in The Bronx) using ridership statistics from 1998-2012.
In the three years that passed, ridership patterns changed, as did rush-hour D service in The Bronx. Unfortunately, that change was a service cut…
(Excerpt from this article.)
…which is nonsensical in light of recent ridership trends. If it wasn’t clear back in 2013 that the Concourse Line needed a service boost, it’s crystal clear now!
I originally penned this poem on March 2nd, 2013 – over three years ago! To celebrate World Poetry Day, I am republishing it for all of you!
From the IEEE:
Hype surrounding 5G wireless networks may be more pervasive than the networks themselves, but new research is suggesting practical ways to overcome issues brought on by the very methods of expanding these networks.
If the research—which addresses two of the most prominent wireless expansion methods, mass femtocells and millimeter-wavelength (mmW) antennas—hold true, wireless developers and carriers may have some valuable tools at their disposals to make 5G more of a widespread reality.
New research into femtocells and millimeter waves is stoking excitement about the future of wireless systems; for me they stoke excitement and something else – nostalgia.
Hey NYC! Need mathematics or statistics tutoring? Let nerdy.nel be your guide; click here for details!
Honestly, I’m excited about jumping back into the tutoring mix! That cats already approached me about the Community Service program only adds to my excitement! Mathematics! Statistics! Bring it on!!😀
Governor Cuomo held a press conference at the New York Transit Museum to discuss upgrades to the crumbling and oft-delayed subway system. While he basically said jack about delays and inadequate service (other than a quip on overcrowding), the governor did announce a list of 30 stations to undergo renewal – and two of them are on the Concourse Line!
