Re: “Thursday Blockbuster Series Presents: Django Unchained

It’s not the best in terms of picture quality, as they just playing DVDs over regular projector, but it’s cheap (free for faculty and students), and popcorn and sugary poison drinks are included.

Re: “Why Idaho Kids Don't Go to College

Whistler, I would like you to try to go to school full time, and pay for tuition, books, transportation, room and board and living expenses with grants and loans. In a past three years the costs continued to go up, and less and less money is left over after costs are paid. I have to work more and go from full-time to 3/4 or 1/2 time just to make ends meet.

Re: “Could the Toxic Spill at Canada's Mount Polley Mine Happen Here Next?

You have a typo there somewhere. 4.5 cubic metres is very small volume for the spill of that magnitude. Likely, you've missed few zeros.

Re: “BSPR: Idahoans Living in Poverty Increasingly Concentrating into 'High-Poverty Areas'

If only you had realized, dickweed, that the welfare you talking about is really a corporate one. Corporations, who don’t pay taxes as it is, shift the burden of support of their workforce on regular taxed enough taxpayers. Why do you think WinCo or CosCo are able to pay their workers substantially more than WalMart and not go out of business?

Most of poor people are working poor. And if they were paid the decent wage, there would be no reason for welfare. Only an idiot who has no idea of what it’s like to live in poverty would come up in their dickweed brain with something like “poverty pimping”. I hope invisible hand of the market would throw yer arse out on the cobblestone and us pimps would laugh at you.

Re: “BSPR: Idahoans Living in Poverty Increasingly Concentrating into 'High-Poverty Areas'

36% is the number of already poor people concentrated in the poor areas that is increased (increased segregation creates vicious cycle of disenfranchisement, Table 1b). The actual percentage of people in poverty is “only” 18.6% (Table 1a).

As it happens every year, ACHD waits till the school year starts to completely mess up the traffic around BSU.

Re: “Boise Has Fourth-Highest Percentage of Residents Who Bike to Work

Mr. Rencher, you’d be surprised (you shouldn’t, but you would) how much effect little changes can make. Take motorcycle filtering/lane-splitting. In the Belgian study on topic (as described here: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/motorb… ), researched modelled the effects for just 10 percent of drivers making modal switch to motorcycles and were allowed to lane-split.

For the remaining 90% of drivers peak rush hour commute on a particular stretch of motorway decreased from 14 to 6 minutes, the traffic started to form later, and dissipate sooner (40 minutes earlier than normal). For all commuters the “lost vehicle hours” were cut by 60% and fuel consumption and emissions were cut by 20%. Financially, improved traffic flow amounted to £280K ($450-70k) per day savings for all motorists (that, of course, go back into local economy).

And again, it was only 10% making a modal switch. Traffic costs a lot of money, in lost time, consumption, pollution and associated health costs.
