Technology Today…

The power in your hands

Transport Us out of this Recession

This week, we’ve learned from economists that our economy came out of recession sometime around July 2009. That is certainly good news, except that some of that growth hasn’t trickled down to everyone and our nation’s unemployment rate remains unbearably high.

On Technology Today this Thursday, September 23, we’re going to look at the technology behind Transportation issues – both building new roads and highways as well as the expansion and creation on new public transportation systems, such as light rail (metro and subway systems within a city) and high speed rail (between cities).

Focusing on Transportation issues have long been considered an effective means at spurring economic development, advancing technology and fighting global warming through their environmental benefits.

If the connection between transportation and these three central goals is unclear – tune into today’s show at 4PM Eastern at VoiceAmericaBusiness.Com.

Bring your questions as well – everything from why so many of us sit through traffic on the highway every morning to why trains have to go slower in the summer.. You can reach the show by phone at 866-472-5790, by text to 240-731-0756, by e-mails to agupta@technologytodayradio.com, by tweets on Twitter at /techtodayradio, as well as by wall posts on our Facebook Fan page.

We are honored to have two wonderful guests today to join us in this discussion. We’re joined by Hoan Dong, knowledgeable in the transportation field with deep insights into what makes these projects fly and what grounds them, as well as the environmental benefits of such projects.
