Rant: DFW Airport Overhaul

I just arrived home from North Dallas and everything looks okay, I saw about two cop cars otherwise traffic is moving just fine. The reason i'm typing this is because I was just there and the traffic from last weeks journey kinda made me want to sit down and share a word something about the construction happening over at the North Entrance - Exit bothers me. I went the wrong way I was going to visit someone one evening during the rain and disliked looking for my car, leaving the bus terminal and searching for my car. The airport is located in a very bad place far from downtown, near Irving where the Cowboys used to play football. Late night and morning traffic problems I don't like to explain what was just completed but it's that bad. Anything happening there is none of my biz but if you look around and notice the incomplete road work, it should be considered a serious matter. One cannot help but brave thru the traffic it's a congestion as you leave the malls and area restaurants. While your driving the wait inside the car and obvious road conditions made me suspect something could be going on ahead of us, so can someone help me understand what could be wrong with the TxDOT. So I did some searching but couldn't find anything about it except for maybe some competition about, how you want it designed. Since I always go by there I just wanted to say that it's looking much better but don't know who could have finished it. Some international airports like in Great Britain, Qatar, Italia, France and Japan could be better or local ones such at Alaska, Atlantic, Hawaii, Michigan, Washington, Maryland, San Antonio, Houston, Newark these are perhaps better traveling on such short notice. The traffic is still there but with some of the lanes closed as I was going past there I believe the only thing happening is the new terminal D. Notice planes parked but it's going to take a lifetime remodeling my local airport..it just needs more upgrades to match other high performing airports like in Tokyo situated along the globe.

Sunday Words: Yu and the Rangers

Rangers vs. Angels The stars at night, are big and bright - clap here - deep in the heart of... (the only state to claim their own kind of toast) Texas. The pageantry, like a cheap version of a MasterCard commercial..Darvish 66 m.p.h curve-ball.

The MLB season has been going on for sometime now and despite the sluggish movements and the setbacks I think Texas has a good chance of winning most of the games, after the world series it's about time we got past our differences and hot climate to end the season. Perhaps it's too early to predict looking at the way they've started playing it's not impossible to give any hint but I just think baseball is no longer something I enjoy watching. I just wanted to wish them "good luck" even if they happened not to beat anything last season. I suggest they do something about the batting lineup, it's an open field the ball goes into the left field and the stadium is going to be on espn at 4am. I cannot follow up on that and i'm not around to watch it..doesn't make the sport look safe at all so return to perfecting the look of the team..the lineup to watch for areas of improvement.

Madiba Day infographic

If you don't know by now former South African president Nelson Mandela celebrated his birthday, I heard about this from BBC World and am glad to say it kinda makes up for everything wrong that's been done to me..anyway i've been sitting here for a number of hours and seem to be in no mood to celebrate the occassion alone. Take a look at the infographic and it's clearly all for the former president I suppose he did a good job and never lied to Africaans.

The main suspects behind Saitoti/ Ojode deaths uncovered

It’s No secret anymore, the suspects are well known...MP Rachael Shebesh didn’t get her facts from outer space...Today I will unveil to you the main suspects..You be the judge as to who you think killed the two. First and foremost I would like to clarify one thing which is that Saitoti was the main target in the Helicopter crash ...Orwa Ojode was just a victim of circumstances better known as collateral damage. Before I mention the suspects, it was well known that police commissioner Mathew Iteere was supposed to be on that very flight but he missed it by a whisker...Why? ati he was delayed in a flight bound for Mombasa from Nairobi. Anyway here are the main suspects: - Saitoti family, Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka, al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Shabab fighters and Raila Odinga, the Kenyan prime minister.

London 2012 Olympics: 14 days to go - live blog

Is anyone interested in the coming Olympic Games click here to get Live coverage of all today's news in the run-up to the London 2012 Olympic Games. Looking back on previous athletic events such as this one which took place in The United States in 1932, I seem to want to ask what about the climate? it was in Berlin 1030 X Olympic congress or IX that a gathering of 600 canoes were offered just as an usher. The issue of venue security has been a vexed one for London 2012 organisers. Not to worry that security is going to be regarded as high level, I don't intend to be attending so sitting home sounds normal despite a lack of income and transportation. Sitting home at my computer and wondering about going to the Olympics is something I rather not discuss now. But coming back to my previous point of the climate, how is the public trasportation going to function. "Our advice to those going to the Olympics is to keep up to date with the forecast to know whether to pack your sunscreen, a poncho or both. Always go prepared for whatever the weather has in store." If you do happen to make it to London 2012 what about driving to see beach, this doesn't sound like a walk in the park the biggest event in world sport. Unlike France i've seen and heard alot about the hotels in Britain some very expensive, if I was to try directing while looking around I don't need to get uncomfortable they cannot just simply find it. London has spent billions preparing to host the 2012 Olympics, constructing state of the art stadiums, overhauling transport links and installing anti-aircraft missiles to beef up security. But there is one thing organizers can't control: The Great British Weather. It’s the International Olympic Committee. So how do they decide? According to the "Official website of the Olympic Movement:" “To make it onto the Olympic program, a sport first has to be recognized: it must be administered by an International Federation which ensures that the sport's activities follow the Olympic Charter. If it is widely practiced around the world and meets a number of criteria established by the IOC session, a recognized sport may be added to the Olympic program on the recommendation of the IOC's Olympic Program Commission.” What about the Saudi females/women? Al Maeena says it's not about challenging norms (the women play in private female-only facilities) but about wellbeing. "It's a social debate that we have to go through to promote [sports] and tell society, or the opposing segments in society, that we're not going against our religious or cultural beliefs," Al Maeena told CNN in February.

When digital beef gets real: What Drake, Chris Brown, Meek Mill can learn

Hello, I just want to post this article on my blog concerning this beef between the performers, i've been picking them up and trying to think what it all could mean..I guess by now there is a lack of respect and obvious jealousy online. Because how can men like one thing, how come the person being wanted cannot find a way out of the relationship trap? they just want to squabble or be spoken of the interest ain't even available. Rihanna is all over doing promo's i'm at a loss for words today this just seems like a person unable to control themselves. Landing in more and more trouble even though problems have already been explained, you just cannot stop from stepping into it to hurt yourself. It's the reason why there is fighting but really in order to explain how it all started I would have to put blame on Rihanna, she's been thru this before so she needs to show some kinda maturity about the brawl anyway fighting is not the right thing to say just make sure you see Chris Brown he's got a girlfriend. Must read VH1's Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta article.
