The westbound l I e that is jammed into would have a boulevard bumper to bumper around from 164th Street, and we've got eastbound heavy traffic out Bell Boulevard that also starts right around 100 64th right now, then with delays North Challenge, Kew Gardens still are getting our heaviest, I should say from Fox Boulevard up into the Kew Gardens interchange. And over on the inbound Wallace. Traffic is very, very heavy, just short of bumper to bumper from 65th to the prospect from the prospect up into the Brooklyn battery. It is bumper to bumper and then it's going to stay heavy up into Cadman Plaza. Now let's take a look in New Jersey, where things have been quiet. Quiet this morning 21 typical delays around Ritu 80 and Route three. And the South bound Western spread. The turnpike is still jammed down to Interchange 15 W We've got 20 minutes solid and at the Lincoln, 2025 into the Holland and 10 minute delays inbound over the George Washington Bridge. I'm Karen Stewart on 10 10 wins. 10. Now. AKI, Weather meteorologist Dean Divorce, Alright heat and humidity in the levels that make it a little dangerous to be out without keeping hydrated.

Minneapolis development to use groundwater to heat and cool buildings
"Gas A. Minneapolis Development Project will use groundwater for heating and cooling. The technology is called. Aquifer Thermal Energy and the city of Minneapolis seems to be embracing it as an alternative. To greenhouse gas emitting natural gas but how can aquifer work as an energy source in? Minnesota's frigid climate. Nina Axelson is the vice president for sustainability and outreach at Evergreen energy they are partners in the upcoming tower side innovation district. Hi Nina Hi Paul Geothermal energy one. Oh one I. How does it work? So a lot of folks are familiar with using the energy stored underground whether in our soil or in our water to heat or cool and Minnesota are aquifer systems in our hydro. Geology are really special and lend themselves well to this. Type of geothermal is counting on the energy stored in the water in the Aquifer to help heat and cooler buildings. What's the water temperature in the aquifer that this project will be tapping for the city of Minneapolis? I think we'd be looking at about a forty to fifty degree temperature as a starting place and then as the technology goes into US. You're actually removing heat from buildings. Between let's say May and October and storing it into a part of the Aquifer that allows for a reserve of heat in that Aquifer so that in the winter that part of the Aquifer that you're extracting from the heat is going to have higher temperatures more capacity and is that able then to generate enough heat or cooling for the buildings. It wouldn't be able to do it alone so this is under the trend that folks here about of beneficial electrification. Which means you're GONNA pair electricity in this case heat pumps with that geothermal capacity in the aquifer to either extract heat from the building during cooling season or to increase the heat enough to be used for heating the spaces in the building or for a hot water uses so this project in Minneapolis. How many buildings are planned to be heated and cooled with this project in the tower side innovation district which is part of the Prospect Park neighborhood of Minneapolis and also the saint. Anthony Park neighborhood of Saint. Paul there is been a lot of development The Green Line surly and the University of Minnesota and the public private investment into that area. So right now out of the gate for this coming year. There are four buildings that are interested in connecting to the first phase of the system but the capacity of the system is fairly limitless so once it's infrastructure is in place all new development in that area would have the potential to connect how new Issaquah for thermal energy and as Minnesota and early adopter in the US. So it's actually been around for at least over twenty years. Most of the applications are in northern Europe Netherlands Scandinavia where? There's over a thousand sites there are not A lot of these in the US so this is absolutely a place for Minnesota to lead that combination of are forward thinking policy on clean energy. The city of Minneapolis has made huge commitments to decarbonised the city and are looking at ways to get away from natural gas as their biggest carbon contributor so this technology is going to be A little bit newer for the country and a little bit newer for Minnesota. But the replica. Ability is really high so once we get the tower side project up and running there are actually three other projects being studied in the state of Minnesota because that Geo
What is Landscape Architecture?
"Studying landscape architecture. Is that right yeah. That's right what appeals to you about landscape architecture yeah no. I think something that appeals to me about landscape architecture is really the broad range of possibilities that come with it so i guess you could say architectures focus focus primarily on the building and landscape. It's everything outside of that in so that encompasses a lot of different types of spaces and a lot of scale space some really interested in more of the social aspect or like public spaces within the urban city. That's kind of what drew me to study landscape and under god. I was always focused on like thinking about the community people that lived around public spaces or in buildings that we we were designing for and i was really interested in thinking about okay how do people move throughout space or where do they interact and kind of like what are big places places or opportunities to engage communities more and give them access to green space clean air and other opportunities for like socialization shen yeah i think when most people think about landscape architecture they're thinking mostly about greenspan. Yeah parks up things things of that nature. I know here in atlanta. There's we have so many little just pocket parks in a way like little parks just kind of tucked in here and there i think right but now there's a proposal to build sort of part of a park over our highway over one of the highway but what are some of the other sorts of things that make up landscape architecture aside from that yeah. That's a good point. I think it's easiest to describe people like oh you know like park designed but they're actually a lot of different other types of the public spaces plazas one of the most famous places that a lot of people recognize is like the hotline so also thinking about post industrial uses uh spaces there also a lot of power and landscape where we can. We have a lot of control over sustainability so we can impact the environment in a positive way way. There are a lot of initiatives happening right now. New york to kind of protect the city against sea level rise so there are a lot of constructions happening along the the coast and we're seeing that development happened so there's a wide scale to thinking about design both on a regional scale but also they're smaller like hard scape plans and thinking about outdoor malls plazas and transportation kinda gets <unk> looped into that as well. How does transportation you looked into that yeah. I guess that is a big statement but i think now that people are kind of thinking about the future of like driverless cars i <hes> now we're thinking about how we can retake over the street for pedestrians or like. Maybe we will need as many spaces for car so i think there's a a lot of pedestrian centered ideas about read configuring street spaces or like what happens if we take away highways from you we know communities can be transformed those spaces into other types of recreational use or ecological use. I think to bypass a really big and thinking get about circulation so how do people move throughout spaces that can be both through cars <hes> through highlights through aeroplanes but also at the ground sound level like walking or biking dot space so those are factors. I think that a lot of designers try to influence into their designs but also could be it's like the highland is a completely new way of kind of moving throughout new york city so really you're. You're kind of like you have the opportunity to design on a bunch of different types of scales it sounds you can do something really small like a plaza or yeah ab- santa park but even apart can range in size from really small to like central park or something the yeah it's funny said positive because <hes> i guess for our first semester design school we had a design like from the smallest scale so like a courtyard yard and it was like teeny like enclosed space but it was really fun of what we can come up with and there were so many different ideas and it was kind of our first project and and then we ramped up in scale and thinking about boston's city hall plaza in that was like seven and a half acres and thinking about okay like this is a hard scape space like we weren't allowed to use like lawns or anything like that like it's completely like thinking about people moving freely and it had to be accessible supposed to boston's like governmental building and then our final design was ramped up in scale again and it was thinking about like waterfront design and interaction between the city city and also like recreational space say yeah. It's definitely a wide range of scales that you can design and everything in between. I'm glad you mentioned accessibility accessibility. That's been something that's been on my mind lately mostly in the web space and i'll bring this back landscape architecture so just just what would be your. I was reading this article this morning about how <hes> domino's pizza is trying to take a case all the way to the supreme court art because a customer suing them because their websites not accessible to not able to access it on a screen reader and there has been other types of lawsuits that are like this. I think there were people that were trying to sue beyond say because her website was not accessible and granted the web guidelines around accessibility normally normally tend to pertain to government sites in terms of enforceability beyond say side is not a government site. Neither domino's pizza however what i found is in the weapons that accessibility the is kind of a it's a slippery scale. Some people really adhere to others. Don't care about it at all but when it comes to landscape architecture accessibility is super important because all types of people have to move throughout spaces yeah. How do you design for physical accessibility yeah. No that's a good question and i think it varies in the designer what you're trying to achieve and some people are very much like oh. We don't want this to be accessed by like massive amounts of people like it could be very dangerous address. It could pose threats large gatherings but i think to like the more practical answers. Oh like in designing public spaces. There are laws and codes like a._d._a. Accessibility laws that you have to buy four but it's also like okay now you can accept those code standards or like how do you truly remake space open and then it raises more questions about like who is allowed in what spaces in who isn't so that got really interesting and especially in terms of the plaza plaza and how do you make a space feel comfortable for maybe a single person who's walking there or in their wheelchair and then also can the space <unk> accommodate like large art gatherings of protests like does the public have a right you know to gather and protests and speak in kind of connected large groups yeah. I don't know if that answers your question. No this is my question. It also made me think a little bit about sorta this concept that i've heard of with defensive design where sometimes certain public spaces like you say designed to keep people out yeah like for example park benches that may have a middle railing so no one can lay across them or four. Maybe low to the ground services. They'll put like little bumps or spikes on them so no one can sit comfortably on it. Yes what it reminded me that that definitely light comes up a lot in designed to in. It's like then. It gets extremely political suicide in like yeah okay. I'm just wondering design like this nice space that maybe people could have like a lunch break oregon but then i think too in the era of like public safety and security people get really like nervous about okay like who sitting sitting and lingering in these spaces and yeah. It's a fine line but i think it's also kind of exciting because you're giving a space where you would not you don't necessarily know what will happen like an park and prospect park in brooklyn. It's like a wonderful space. When i go there. I see people by gang doing tai not doing yoga with their dogs and like there's not a set like programmed area for that to happen. It kind of just is able to happen and there are like political local statements that also happened there so i think it's an exciting platform to be able to design kind of within that one thing when you when you sort of talk about spaces like this i'm thinking of how a few years ago there were a lot of public protests in the streets blocking highways and and blocking major thoroughfares thoroughfares and things like that and i know like here in atlanta for example there was a big complaints that people could walk down onto the highway. Yeah they're like oh. Why is that. Why is that possible which doesn't make sense like why wouldn't they you can drive down there. You walk down there but no it's interesting about the the sort of governance of different spaces for different types of people or even different modes of transportation. There's more that i want to dive into with the topic but i want to take it back a little bit. I'm really curious to know about more about you and how you came to be studying at harvard talking about all this stuff so where did you. Where'd you grow up yeah definitely so i was born in new jersey but i grew up my whole life and south west virginia. A little town called roanoke doc. Anybody knows it and i'm the youngest of three girls and so my mom. She's a new yorker. My dad was from chicago. They're both from big city and then when they have made they decided they wanted to move down south and kind of slow things down and so i grew up in roanoke must of my life i went to school with a lot of my friends like kindergarten through high school and even some in college. I think it was a good community where everyone was really well connected. It and everyone knew each other and so grown up in a place like that was really unique as i'm learning and then i went off to school to study architecture at the university of virginia i think tau i got there was like not a linear path at all listening like oh. How did you have it figured out yet was curious. Here is like has designed been like a big part of your childhood growing up where you're surrounded by it. Yeah i think one since i was surrounded by it i didn't really realized that until later and now like looking back. I was like oh <hes> my parents did a good job at like teaching me how to do this or that and so oh my dad did many things that he also briefly worked in furniture procurement in my mom went to fashion school for a little bit and then decided that wasn't for her but they in my grandma on my mom's side like always painted and drew and so my parents were good at like exposing me to the arts very early but i didn't realize what's that there were possible careers through design until high school and so i kind of was always interested in drawing and painting in but it was kind of like something i did just for fun and then i thought i wanted to be a doctor. I thought that was like what is going to do and i very it. Quickly realized like i don't like hospitals. I'm very scared of blood in bali fluids and so then i said oh my goodness like what am i gonna do. Who i think was like fourteen. I was like man. I just don't know what i'm going to study and my dad actually said what about architecture and then at that time i had no. I know i dea what that field was an. I was like what is this and <hes> in high school. I got to go to a couple of design camps at <hes> virginia ginny tech university. What was other school. I went to another school north carolina state university and they had like the summer design her rams that my dad found his co. You you should go in and you can kind of test and see if he liked it and so at first it was just such a different way of thinking and i was not really excited about it <hes> but then i went on to study it in college and it was very hard at first has a lot of people seal when i studied architecture but <hes> no now it turned out to be really amazing from people who have had on the show we've had a couple of of architects on before and they have always talked about i mean the difficulty of i think just yes of course learning about the subject matter but also a lot of those spaces are not super diverse and so if you're coming in there as quote unquote the other and that sort of just adds an element to the difficulty of studying and being a space like that yeah absolutely so no one in my immediate any family or anyone i knew of really studied architecture and so that was a whole new learning environment for me. I went to school in a lot of people the parents had studied architecture like they're punctual and so they were kind of already looped in the field and yeah it was very hard to understand the language <hes> just even what architecture it was <hes> it was a difficult amount of learning that you have to do a friend like learning the software but also a lot of technical skills that you need to choir but overall though what was your time at university of virginia yeah i think overall the wall. It was really great. 'cause then my first year the kind of restarted i think as my first year right before i got they restarted their no muss chapter. I know ma says the national organization

"It's morning edition on WNYC. I'm Richard Hake as people flocked to the city's parks to enjoy the spring, weather the parks department says it's testing all of the thirty five hundred public drinking fountains for lead. But there's another debate over what to do about lead contaminated soil. Let is dangerous neuro toxin and some say that soil poses a serious hazard for young children. WNYC's Christopher worth reports to my kids need to get outside McCarron park in green point. Williamsburg is just a short walk from home. Here. I come this is a former industrial neighborhood and the grounds here have seen a lot of wear and tear Camille this. This is supposed to be a big grassy. Patch here. What do you see? Stiff so much dirt. We play I'm gonna get you. Their hands. Inevitably get covered with dirt and appearance. I can't help. But wonder if that's soil is safe in. Here's why for much of the twentieth century Americans burned millions of tons of lead in gasoline that led enter the atmosphere and then settled into the ground where much of it remains today, you know, most people don't necessarily think of their young children ingesting soil. But if you've ever seen a toddler explore the world, one of the main ways they do that is by sticking everything in their mouth. And so you do have the fine dust and particles that get stuck to their hands. And then there's wallowed Francisco Landis is an environmental scientist at Columbia University. She studied the city soil, particularly people's backyards in private garden areas where she's found lead levels as much as three times, the limits set by the Environmental Protection Agency, I've just been very surprised. How high the levels are that I'm seeing in these backyards, what we don't have much information about soil in public parks, which is why the head of the city council's environmental protection committee council member cost a constantinidis has introduced a Bill. It would require the city to test the soil in city parks, make the results public and then fix areas where lead levels are high, not in every case. Right. But in cases where there is a proximity to contamination proximity to large bridges are infrastructure, or, or other sources of pollution that there should be testing done, and steps, taken the mitigate this potential danger, but the city's health Commissioner series Bourbeau doesn't agree, th really a perfect example of how we need to match the intervention to the risk Bourbeau doesn't believe soil poses much risk. And she's concerned that all the effort it will take to test. And remediate the city's parks could detract attention from what is thought to be the primary factor in childhood lead exposure, which isn't in parks, but inside people's homes, the most common potential source of exposure is paint has always been paint. And for number of different reasons, will continue to be paint. However, researching other cities, such as Detroit New Orleans, Los Angeles has linked contaminated soil with elevated levels in children, so WNYC decided to have its own look. Okay. It's nice and early in the morning. I am standing in McCarron park in a part of the park that is usually filled with kids and families sitting on the ground having picnics playing. And so what we're going to do is test the soil. Just this one part to try to get a sense of what is going on. Here. We collected over one hundred samples in three New York City parks, McCarron in prospect park in Brooklyn into story park in queens. Right in the heart of constantinidis district into do it. We collaborated with the urban soils lab at Brooklyn college. Would you introduce yourself? Yeah. So my name is Joan Chen, and people nominee commie Joshua, Joshua, ten Chang, says, you first have to understand how much lead is considered dangerous in New York. The current standard for bare soil, where children play is four hundred parts per million. If it's more than four hundred parts per million, you definitely need to take care of it. But New York hasn't kept up with guidelines from the centers for. For disease control, which says, no level of lead exposure is safe California. For example, has lowered its standard for lead in soil to eighty parts per million. So right now, you can push the sample to run the test Chang uses what's known as a hand held x Ray fluorescence machine. And they pull the trigger x Ray hits the soil particles in. Here's what we found each park did have at least one sample above four hundred parts per million, but our results varied widely, we chose McCarron park because of its industrial history. In fact, there used to be at lead paint factory. Right next door to the park in the average lead level in the large section. We tested was two hundred parts per million. We prospect park for the opposite reason it was created in the eighteen sixties and of existing farmland and forest, but was still subject to emissions from leaded gas there. The average was lower at one hundred forty. But our single highest.

Its image ahead of an IPO. Uber has kept the number of lawsuits from drivers down by making it the default that legal disputes, go through arbitration, beware. The wrath of the rideshare driver though. More than twelve thousand have opted to go through arbitration now Hoover foots, the fifteen hundred dollars filing fee, for such cases and Gizmodo calculates that comes to about nineteen million dollars in fees for Uber.

Remember him the New York financier who ran a Ponzi scheme that cost investors, tens of billions of dollars. What would you say to them. Bernie Bernie, do people into trusting him with their money and then put it into fake investments and doled out fake returns. Their money made Bernie and a handful of others, rich, and then the market crashed in two thousand and eight and exposed his scam. It was one of the largest financial frauds in US history with accounts. The Bernie claimed were worth more than sixty billion dollars. It was a lie and win the bottom dropped out. It raised big questions about the safety of investments. And even though Bernie Madoff is a fading memory for most Americans. Steve says, his story has lessons for us today.
