California wastes more money on train station to nowhere



Californis spent $188 million dollars for a sleek train station that looks like a spaceship in orange county. (not the picture above!)

The $188-million transportation center in the heart of Anaheim, not far from Disneyland, is designed as a central hub where trains, buses, cars and bicycles will converge. Officials hope it ultimately will be the final stop for the state's proposed high-speed bullet train. The station itself is a stunning crisscross of steel pipes that form a rounded skeleton that seems to hover above the ground like a cloud.

Translucent pillows of Teflon-impregnated plastic — the same material used in Beijing's National Aquatics Center, or Water Cube, and Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi, Russia — fill each diamond of the frame, allowing the sun to light 75% of the public space in the building, which is also powered by solar panels.

More than 600 strips of LED lights will turn the pipes red for Angels games and orange when the Ducks play. The teams will have pre- and post-game shows oriented toward the center.

Inside, a large open area faces a main staircase that soars up the building's three levels, each one recessed from the next. Hot and cold water piped through the floors controls the temperature on each level.

On the ground floor, ticket counters with information on scrolling digital strips await passengers. A "progressive convenience store" and a kiosk offering organic coffee are planned.

Upstairs, restaurants are scheduled to open next year that will offer passengers opportunity to grab a bowl of quinoa and super veggies, watch oysters be shucked, or sip a hand-crafted cocktail at a bar.

The only problem?

According to OCTA records, the depot had an average of 510 weekday boardings last fiscal year, ranking it seventh among 10 Orange County Metrolink stops. The busiest, Irvine and Fullerton, had three times as many boardings.

They spent $188 million dollars on a barely used train station. But like the Pharoahs, the government has to build bigger and bigger monuments to itself.

3 American Teens Caught Trying to Join Islamic State


Mohammed Hamzah Khan, 19, rose before dawn on Oct. 4 to pray with his father and 16-year-old brother at their neighborhood mosque in a Chicago suburb.

When they returned home just before 6 a.m., the father went back to bed and the Khan teens secretly launched a plan they had been hatching for months: to abandon their family and country and travel to Syria to join the Islamic State.

While his parents slept, Khan gathered three newly issued U.S. passports and $2,600 worth of airline tickets to Turkey that he had gotten for himself, his brother and their 17-year-old sister. The three teens slipped out of the house, called a taxi and rode to O’Hare International Airport.

The Khan teens, U.S.-born children of Indian immigrants, each left letters for their parents explaining their motives.

“An Islamic State has been established and it is thus obligatory upon every able-bodied male and female to migrate there,” Khan wrote. “Muslims have been crushed under foot for too long. . . . This nation is openly against Islam and Muslims. . . . I do not want my progeny to be raised in a filthy environment like this.”

His sister wrote: “Death is inevitable, and all of the times we enjoyed will not matter as we lay on our death beds. Death is an appointment, and we cannot delay or postpone, and what we did to prepare for our death is what will matter.”

Republican spending bill gives $17,000 to 56,000 illegal aliens


The GOP’s draft 2015 “omnibus” spending bill reportedly includes $948 million to help poor and unskilled Central American migrants establish themselves in the United States, but includes no effective restrictions on President Barack Obama’s plan to provide work permits and tax payments to millions of resident illegal immigrants.

That new spending works out to $16,928 for each of the 56,000 youths, young adults and children who crossed the border during the 12 months up to October 2014. (Daily Caller)

Harvard Law students too traumatized to take exams


Minority student coalitions at Harvard and Georgetown law schools are pressing administrators to postpone or defer final exams because they claim they have experienced trauma over the recent grand jury decisions in the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.

The students are hoping for the same outcome granted to students at Columbia Law, another top-tier institution.

Over the weekend Columbia Law’s interim dean, Robert Scott, announced that exams would be postponed for students who feel traumatized over the two grand jury decisions not to indict white police officers in the deaths of Brown and Garner, both of whom are black.
