Nefarious NapStealers Cause LA Carmageddon

Image via Wikipedia

On July 16 and 17 there is going to be a construction closure on the 405 in Los Angeles, which according to local news sources will cause a massive shutdown, which is being referred to as the Car-Mageddon. The LA Weekly has reported that the closure will not only affect traffic in and around L.A., but will cause closures of multiple tourist attractions, including The Getty Museum, which normally one of the largest weekends for their annual 1.2 million visitors.

Instead of the usual hour-long commute between attractions, annoying yet tolerable (and so authentic!), mid-July visitors can expect apocalyptic traffic mayhem, dubbed Carmegeddon by KNX news radio, for their entire weekend stay.

So, if you’re in LA in July, get out before the take over The 405 this summer. If you’re planning on visiting Los Angeles in July, don’t.

    Hi Andrew,
    We could use your crew clearing some of the brush on the 405 freeway near our house. Cars catch on fire right near our community, 1/2 mile south or be a problem, but no, they have to burn their cars right on the dry hillside brush near our house. Mark and Steph are in Tokyo, I will be meeting them in Hawaii this week. Wish you a lovely XMAS, and a wonderful, healthy 2010.
    Love, Marsha

    if the project is going to be a rail line, the ridership prospects warrant it to be on Van Nuys Boulevard, not Sepulveda Boulevard.If it has to be bus-based, it should be on the 405 freeway because the only place the buses can use carpool lanes. Also, commuter services can use the lanes.Buses will not get their own lanes, especially not in the Valley. And limited-stop service is not a viable alternative.

  11. glad that I read your comment. I was definately going to purchase a 405. I have a 305 that went dead and was going to upgrade only because I have a very, very small wrist and the 305 swallows it completely. I thought the 405 would be better, however, with your comments, I would rather have a huge (305) garmin that works great than a small one (405) that

    LAPD plans motorcycle safety crackdown

    The LAPD will conduct a specialized motorcycle safety enforcement operation Thursday in an attempt to crack down on reckless riders.

    Extra officers will be patrolling areas frequented by motorcyclists where crashes often occur.

    Motorcycle fatalities have been on the rise across Los Angeles County, increasing from 275 killed in 2000 to 533 killed last year. Collisions have increased in the same period by 47 percent.

    By comparison, as of Monday there were about 704 homicides so far this year in Los Angeles County, according to the office.

    Inexperience is a major factor in the increased number of motorcycle fatalities, police said.

A large section over Yerba Buena was removed and new bypass ramp slid into place. Despite a huge setback that could have kept the bridge closed into this weekend new pieces were fabricates here in Arizona and flown in on a flight. The bridge opened only two hours late Tuesday morning at 7am PDT. Great job workers!

    As an almost non mobile phone user, I wonder if we need to think more carefully about technology and terminology. It seems to me that the answers above apply to the use of telephones, which have of course been around for all of our lifetimes, not specifically to mobile phones, which have not (in my case at least). Mobile phones are being used here only as an exercise, but it does perhaps illustrate the need to be careful about what it is that we are talking about.

    Dear Michael,

    enjoyed reading your review. It has been some time since you posted your review, so I hope you still have the time to answer my question.

    The 405 has been released quite some time ago (over 2 years). One could expect that a newer version would be launched (e.g. 406). How does Garmin make sure that their product(s) are with the latest features? Do they upgrade the software?

  32. A Los Angeles councilman pushing for an economic boycott of Arizona says the nation’s second-largest city must take action to protest Arizona’s tough new anti-illegal immigration law critics say will lead to racial profiling.

    City policy analyst Gerry Miller says Los Angeles has $56 million in Arizona-related investments and he recommends suspending travel to the state, avoiding new contracts and reviewing current ones for possible termination.

    Councilman Ed Reyes told KNX news radio Wednesday the Arizona law is discriminatory and “we need to take an action.”

    The council discusses the proposals Wednesday.

    The Arizona law makes it a crime for illegal immigrants to be in the state and it requires police to check immigration papers during investigation of a crime.

    The elitism is a of the dogma. Like when the LDS leadership says that technology was invented for the spread of the gospel. In hindsight, its so shallow as to be both humorous and pathetic. Where are the great today as compared to the past? Well I visited the Getty Museum a few weeks ago, and there were a few hundred there. Where are the great scientific minds comparable to Newton? You only have to look in high schools to find that level of mental acuity. You name the topic and great mind, odds are, improved upon it since then.

  36. /hi there, if you want, I have both and can borrow you my 405 for a run. I can tell you a lot about the 305 but dislike the 405. The one big reason is the 405 goes into battery save mode and to reset or get back into using the watch you have to press the outside and keep it pressed before you can stop your workout. That is a bit of a pain though. If you want to use my 405 for a run to tst and see you are welcome, let me know and I can bring it for you to the next race or maybe to ultrak one day or you can fetch it. If I can give you advice I enjoy my 305 more and dont know what to do with my 405…. KEEP FIT

    I agree that the national news has done more extensive coverage of the in Haiti than the Illinois and local news sources. This is probably because there are fewer people in Illinois and at the local level that have a connection to either Haiti or the people in Haiti. I also agree that it is a huge story that can affect many people here in the United States. However, if someone locally is connected in some way to the devastation, they can still obtain updates from the national news media.
    I would give the national news media an A for their coverage and the state and local media a C for providing coverage when the story first hit but losing some steam with it as time goes on.

In the end, I went with the 305, despite my complete and utter distaste for its clunky appearance.

If you go to the Getty Museum web site and just type St. Hedwig in the search function, all of the parchments should pop up for you to view. The manuscripts were commissioned by ancestors of the saint, sometime in the 13th century. Hope this helps somewhat.

    traveling wakes up the senses..especially if in a place that you been or seen before.

    i would like to live near the getty museum…or if given a chance, live at the getty museum itself (the research center or the villa). Being at close proximity with of the past warms my and soul…. and located in one of the most beautiful places that ever walked on in my years of travel/work…

    Even my native Californian friends I know of even set foot in there…and it was only when I told them about it that they went…be it a date or a family outing and now like: “How come I come here before?”

    Compare that to some damned young person doing 100 in a school zone on two tires while downloaning an ipod app, chatting on their cellular telephone, cannibas and watching a utube video while listening to rap music blaring at top volume.

    Give me the senior driver any day of the week.

    not that we that we refuse to drive like hellions and maniacs.

    I’m traveling to southern California soon and am wondering where I can see some work of Irwin.
    I know he designed the garden at the Getty Center and, to my good is giving a talk this coming Sunday (June 12) at LACMA.

    I’m interested in the installations he did in the 1970′s and the work of other “light and space” like Maria Nordman and James Turrell. The gardens and public works sound cool, but I’m really curious about the indoors stuff too. I’ve read so much about them, it would be nice to see something in this vein in person. Is there anywhere in this area you can view an installation by one of these artists?
