How The CRMA Uses The Modern Technology To Create Smart Roads

The CTRMA collaborates with the local community when it comes to providing the labor and protecting the road furniture from vandalism. Since the roads benefit the local population, incorporating the local community in the project is always a good idea. With the advent of the GPS technologies, the motorists can get the real-time directions to their destinations. In addition, it is possible to get a warning if you switch to the wrong lanes or use the inappropriate exit.


Highlighting the Road Markings

While people are seeking the latest technology to help unveil the future cars, the highways are still stuck in the old ages. One of the basic strategies when it comes to creating the smart roads is to rethink how the engineers design the road markings. The white and yellow paints are visible during the day, but invisible at night. By highlighting the road markings with a luminous material, it is possible to see the lanes clearly. The CTRMA hopes to ensure that the urban roads and Interstates are both smart and intuitive. Many motorists also miss the traffic signs since they cannot see them clearly. In the end, they end up over speeding or missing the key hints while on the road.


Installing sensors on the road

Roads provide easy access from one point to another, but according to the CTRMA, they can do a lot more. With the modern technology, roads can store the storm-water for use in the future, charge the vehicles, or even detect the level of environmental pollution. The future roads can be more intuitive than their inanimate predecessors if the contractors take advantage of the modern technology. The modern roads are fitted with sensors that capture the data and nab the drivers who overspeed at any time of the day or night.


The motorists can get the Real-time data

In addition, the road users can be connected to each other to enable the drivers to communicate. The ability to avoid some routes, especially in the case of an accident can also help to eliminate the traffic jams. With such roads, the users will enjoy the safe, quick and effective trips. When you consider the benefits in terms of time savings and the reduced environmental emissions, you get the picture.

Austin is a major city of Texas with many opportunities and problems. The biggest problem is the ever increasing traffic in Williamson County. Growth Summit was held in Austin during December 2016. Fortunately, the traffic issue of Williamson County was discussed, and the transit experts presented the possible solution. The event was held at the Conference Center of Sheraton Georgetown Texas Hotel. The agenda of the summit was curbed the issue of transportation in Austin and internationally through technology.

Ficklin said that the most suitable option for Central Texas is a system called Aerial Gondola.



Mike Heiligestein said that the transportation infrastructure could completely change with the introduction of driverless vehicles and ridesharing apps. However, a lot more has to be done for the area of Austin to manage its transportation capacity. The biggest requirement of the area is smart roads. He emphasized the point that population is continuously increasing and smarter roads are the best option to meet area’s demands. According to him, the Williamson County has the highest rate of growth among all suburbs. Although the County has increased the infrastructure during the last fifteen years, the population will further increase here. Several roads were constructed, and the capacity of old roads were increased. Now the only way to further improve the situation is to make things more efficient and technologically advanced. Ficklin suggested that building codes and flexible land use should not be changed.


It was 2002 when the government decided to create Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority. Its task was to design a modern regional transportation network for Central Texas. Mike Heiligenstein was made the Executive Director of this institution who planned and initiated many projects to meet the transportation needs of this area. The project known as 183A was the first one; it was a fully electronic cashless toll collection system. Recently Manor Expressway was opened for public use.

The Kabbalah Centre Offers Infinite Enlightement

You may have heard of celebrities who follow the ancient teachings of Kabbalah such as: Madonna, Mick Jagger, Elizabeth Taylor, Demi Moore, Alex Rodriguez, Ariana Grande, and more. Although the growing list of celebrities who are students of Kabbalah is lengthy, you should know that practicing the teachings of Kabbalah doesn’t require you to be rich and famous. The Kabbalah Centre is a non-religious, spiritual organization that spans across nationalities, ethnicities, and backgrounds.

Rav Philip Berg and his wife Karen Berg brought Kabbalah teachings to the masses. Rav Philip Berg expanded upon the methods used by Rav Yehuda Ashlag. Rav Ashlag was the founder of the Kabbalah Centre, and he structured the teachings as we now know it. He founded the Kabbalah Centre in 1922. Kabbalah is not a hierarchal method of study that pushes students and followers to attain levels of knowledge and understanding. It is simply practical enlightenment that you can use in many areas of life in order to experience greater joy, love, and a sense of purpose. What we know of as today as the Kabbalah Centre started out as the National Research Institute of Kabbalah in 1965 in New York.

The primary headquarters for the Kabbalah Centre is located in Los Angeles, which was opened in 1984. There are Kabbalah Centres all across the world which includes centres in Rio de Janeiro, Milan, Miami, Toronto, and other areas in the US, Asia and Middle East, the Americas, and Europe. If you can’t find a Kabbalah Centre near you, then you can go online and watch online Kabbalah classes or read resources about the principles, history, and core teachings of Kabbalah. Through the Kabbalah Center Charitable Causes (KCCC), the Kabbalah Centre continuously gives back on a global scale to those in need. Spiritual, physical, and financial support has been provided to individuals, groups, and nations to bring relief and support in the wake of natural disasters, poverty and hunger, and gender inequality.

In much of their charitable work, the Kabbalah Centre has partnered with other charitable organizations such as the American Red Cross, Partners in Health and Habitat for Humanity, and other groups.


Waiakea: A Bottle Full Of Change

Most people dream about starting their own business and end up falling a little short. But that did not apply to the company owner Ryan Emmons. Charm City Beverages resorted that he originally launched Waiākea water in 2012 a year after graduating. And now he sells his product in over 900 different locations around the world.

Ryan’s strategy has certainly paid off. He is able to transport most of the water to the United States by using only one small co-packing facility. Learn more about Waiakea Water:

Now that he has successfully transformed an idea into a business, he will be opening up a larger plant that will tap into a fresh water source with ease. Scaling a business up is always a very important tactic to succeed. However, the bottled water industry does not need a large company to succeed.

According to Crunchbase, Waiakea water offers a product that does not have much of a competition, and in return they are able to offer a premium service with an exceptional price. Waiakea spring water is definitely something different, by tapping into a fresh water source they are able to offer consumers what they want.

What does a consumer want?

People are figuring out the importance of pH balanced water. A consumer can maintain a proper amount of pH in their body by simply keeping a healthy balance of alkaline.

There are numerous brands of bottled water sources that actually measure on a low pH scale, however, Waiakea water comes from a rich water source that is naturally alkaline based. According to PR News Wire, Waiakea Water goes through a unique filtration system that offers a constant flow of water unlike some sources that remain stagnant. It becomes a pH balance of 8.8 naturally due to the minerals present in the water.

It can even have a hint of sweetness to it. Drinking alkaline water daily can reduce acid reflux, prevent Alzheimer’s, and minimize the risk of cognitive decline. Emmon’s knows that the benefits of alkaline water can be overlooked, but he is making it a mission to change that.

New Age Mysticism Adds to the Popularity of the Kabbalah Centre

The Kabbalah Centre is looking to continue its amazing growth in the 21st century after bringing the ancient writings originally found in Judaism to the attention of people from a wide range of belief systems. Kabbalah has always been hidden by teachers of Judaism who believed it too complex for the uneducated to explore; however, the growth of new age mysticism in the early 20th century brought The Kabbalah Centre a new range of students who were looking to become closer to the wonders of the universe that can be explored with the aid of these ancient teachings.

The history of Kabbalah can be traced back to the dawn of Judaism and the figure of Adam from the Garden of Eden; the teachings of Kabbalah were handed down from Adam through to Moses who is thought to have encoded much of the information in the Zohar in stories of his life. Zohar, the book of teachings of Kabbalah, has a number of books based on the commentary on the writings of Moses, among other subjects like the nature of God and how this figure is reflected in the universe.

Zohar has always been a difficult piece of writing for students to uncover and understand after it was written in a form of Hebrew commonly used in the 2nd century. These works were later published is Spain during the 13th century by the writer Moses de Leon. Students entering the study of the Kabbalah are often looking for a closer relationship to God, which is referred to as the light that brings a wisdom of the entire universe.

People of all belief systems are welcomed into The Kabbalah Centre as the writings they are looking to use for a greater understanding of all aspects of the universe have been developed without a specific religion in mind.
