In my particular case, I was taking a train from Pelham, NY to 125 Street in Harlem NYC, and transferring on the Hudson line to Poughkeepsie. Once my train arrived at the station, then I waited for a bus that would take me to Marist College, my final destination. The monthly commuter pass was $500.00

According to Pew Research, over half of all adults who are living in US now have their own smartphones.

Most of us depend on our smartphones for online access, and never has it been this fast and easy to take a photo or video and share it online for everyone to see.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx today announced that at the Department’s insistence, air bag manufacturer Takata has acknowledged that a defect exists in its air bag inflators. Takata has agreed to a national recall of certain types of driver and passenger side air bag inflators. These inflators were made with a propellant that can degrade over time and has led to ruptures that have been blamed for six deaths worldwide. The action expands the number of vehicles to be recalled for defective Takata inflators to nearly 34 million.
