Rahm Emanuel, Elon Musk talk tunnel for O'Hare-downtown high-speed rail....

What timing.....

Just days after Infraccess CEO Neil Rodney Smith was possibly murdered Over Chicago/Illinois Infrastructure woes now comes this.....

Mayor Rahm Emanuel is talking to entrepreneur Elon Musk about the possibility of the technology investor and SpaceX founder using a high-tech digger to bore out an underground high-speed rail line connecting downtown to O'Hare International Airport. On Monday, Emanuel described the discussions as preliminary, but said he plans to have Musk's team here to see if digging a rail line makes more sense than other possibilities like using an existing railroad right-of-way or double-decking the CTA Blue Line to speed travelers to and from the airport. The mayor resurrected the long-discussed high-speed train in early 2016, a dream predecessor Richard M. Daley had talked about off and on since the early 1990s. Emanuel sees it as a way to improve Chicago…

China urges India to immediately withdraw its border guards that have crossed the boundary and have a thorough investigation of this matter, Geng said.

Otto Warmbier 'Grew Up Thinking He Could Get Away With Anything'

Not surprising that the boy is dead....

Let it be a lesson to all the other punks out there who think that anything goes...
THE UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE PROFESSOR'S FULL FACEBOOK POST Is it wrong of me to think that Otto Warmbier got exactly what he deserved?
He went to North Korea for f*** sake, and then acted like a spoiled, naive, arrogant, US college student who never had to face the consequences of his actions.
I see him crying at his sentencing hearing and think 'What did you expect?'
How about the moments of thought give to all the other people in North Korea who are suffering under the repressive government there? Just because they are north Koreans, and not US citizens, we shouldn't care about them?
I've spent my life teaching folks just like Otto (I'm a 62 year old college professor of anthropology) and Otto is typical of the mindset of a lot of the young, white, rich, clueles (sic) males who come into my classes.
These are the same kids who cry ab…

Chinese companies to play more active role in US infrastructure building: Experts  NEW YORK — US President Donald Trump has pledged a massive infrastructure plan in the country, which may bring increasing opportunities for Chinese companies, US experts said here on Wednesday. "The Trump administration has been very focused on investing infrastructure, including public-private partnerships ...

Foye further explained that as the government agency oversees much of the regional transportation infrastructure in the two states, Port Authority processes bridges, tunnels, airports and seaports, which are "revenue-generating assets" and "expect to attract capitals from all over the w…

Another luxury condo at Manhattan’s One57 is scheduled for a foreclosure auction -- the second time in a month that a property seizure is being sought at the Billionaires’ Row tower following a mortgage default. And it might be the biggest in New York City residential history. Apartment 79, a full-floor penthouse that was the eighth-priciest sold in the building, is scheduled for auction on July 19, according to real estate data firm PropertyShark. The owner of the condo, a shell company listed in public records as One57 79 Inc., bought the 6,240-square-foot (580-square-meter) residence in December 2014 for $50.9 million, according to New York City records.

LOL! Billionaire CEO'S Experience Virtual Reality Homelessness!

The wealthy men and women were filmed wearing virtual reality goggles as part of the CEO Sleepout   The head honchos of Australia's most profitable businesses gathered together to raise money for homeless people by partaking in the 'CEO Sleepout'. But the wealthy bosses were slammed after it emerged the men and women were given virtual reality headsets to simulate homelessness instead of actually sleeping rough on the streets. Footage of a row of CEOs wearing the expensive headsets as they experienced 'what it was like to be homeless' through futuristic software sparked fury from dozens of critics who slammed them as 'out of touch' with reality. The caption of the video, posted to Twitter, read: 'Our Sydney CEOs using virtual reality to get a glimpse of the realities faced by the people who experience this everyday.' But despite the noble intentions behind the cause, the charity was instantly condemned online by users who were unimpressed by the ph…
