Technicolor greens, brilliant saris, ancient temples: these are my clearest memories of riding India's South Eastern Railway many years ago. I still r...
At JumpStart, we've spent more than ten years focused on accelerating the growth of startup companies in Northeast Ohio. Our goal has been to increase entrepreneurs' odds of success, so they can transform our region's economy and make it a nationally significant center of innovation and entrepreneurship.
When I arrived, I unpacked one hundred and five pounds of my belongings and began to settle in. Settling, sort of like the mucus glob at the bottom of a kombucha bottle. Definitely good for you, but not always the easiest thing to swallow.
It is not everyone's weekend getaway. In the nation's southwest, bordered by Sichuan on the northwest and Yunnan on the south, Guizhou is among China's poorest provinces.
The unenviable Catch-22 that American rail travel faces: If the trains were nicer and faster, they'd probably be more popular, but unless they get more popular, they'll probably never get nicer and faster.
Instead of embracing the future of modern transportation, some elected officials in the U.S. fail to see the value of passenger rail as part of an integrated network. Many of those same official are also more than willing to starve the rest of our badly aging transportation system.
I weep for Paris' lost youth, freedom, and kindness in the world. When I think about what happened in Paris (and Beirut just days before), I try to r...
Traveling from Washington to Baltimore in only 15 minutes? Seems far-fetched, but is within reach.
Riding the rails -- it's a beloved experience that many prefer to plane or car travel. There are no security lines and no traffic, plus the benefit of wider seats and more legroom. But among those who don't travel Amtrak regularly, it's common to hear complaints.

Obviously my enthusiasm for the end of summer comes with different reasons, but I'm eager for your kids to return to school, nonetheless.

I jump onto a train when I need to write and think. I avoid my laundry and my stories and the words and panties get piled up with life's multitude of ...
After three years of auctions, the program is needlessly complex, the spending of funds is opaque, funded projects may not reduce emissions, and the state's goal of becoming a national or international template for carbon pricing is in question.
In Germany there are bakeries on practically every corner. I lived in Stuttgart, a pretty big city in the south of Germany where I could see three bakeries just by looking out the window and swiveling my head slightly.
It makes no sense to gamble on a deal without securing tools that will allow America to remain a world leader. This can happen only when we make the American people a priority and take the necessary steps to enhance our workforce and transportation system, which is the greatest investment we can make in our future.
