FLORIDA KEYS (CBSMiami) – There are troubled waters on the horizon for the Florida Keys. Monroe County made a shocking announcement Wednesday that some roads and homes may be surrendered to the sea. It’s all because of sea level rise. The county could let roads sink below the surface, cutting off homes or even neighborhoods. The revelation comes from a study to raise some 300 miles of roadway indicated it would come at a very high cost. After seeing the estimate, more than a billion dollars, county leaders said for some neighborhoods it just might not make economic sense to save them. The county is discussing alternatives like replacing roads with boats as well as raising taxes to pay for the roads that are raised. The 51-page report on climate change in Monroe County is alarming. It noted this year’s seasonal tides are setting records. It also indicated sea level rise projections increasing. There is a chart of the most vulnerable counties in the United States, … [Read more...] about ‘The Keys Are Not Going To Save Everybody’: Officials Could Let Roads, Homes Be Swallowed Up By Rising Sea

Does India really need a New Education Policy? Is our educational reform held back by the datedness of the 1986/1992 education policy which was written before the internet and mobile phones? On this question, I tend to agree with what the current Prime Minister said back in 2013 – “India needs Action, not Acts.” So I admittedly approach the draft National Education Policy 2019 with some scepticism.Further, in my opinion, a good policy should not be too long, should take stands on important issues, prioritize action items, readily provide evidences for the tenets it advances and draw extensively on the experience of people who have worked in the sector nationally and internationally.

These points are important because in India we tend to write policies and Plan Documents in education that say the right … [Read more...] about Does India really need a New Education Policy to achieve educational equity?

(CNN) — Who hasn’t struggled to sleep on an airplane economy seat, forced to improvise a makeshift pillow out of a rolled up sweater or scarf? A new seat design comes with an innovative solution to this inflight issue, using “padded wings” that fold out from behind both sides of the seat back — allowing both for additional privacy and a cushioned spot to rest heads for some shut-eye. This new idea from Universal Movement, a spin-off from London-based design company New Territory, is called “Interspace.” It premiered in London this week as part of the Aircraft Cabin Innovation summit 2019. CNN Travel went along to find out more about what makes this seat different, and to test out just how comfy this concept really is. Fresh design Interspace is the brainchild of Luke Miles, New Territory’s founder and chief creative officer. He spent three years working as Head of Design at Virgin Atlantic, so he knows his aircraft interiors inside out. … [Read more...] about New Airplane Seat ‘Wing’ Design Might Make It Easier To Sleep In Economy
