But for a few visitors-and I am one of them-a trip to Chikmagalur is always accompanied by the hope that we might spot its most famous resident, Professor Carvalho. He should be easy to find: He’s a Mangalorean Catholic, somewhat unusual for these parts, sports a silvery beard, and his Kannada, though formal, is interspersed with English phrases like “My dear young man” and “Yesyes”. So we crane our necks out of cars and buses and stare at the locals, wondering if Carvalho is among them-though we know, of course, that he is not.Aravind AdigaHe lives only in a novel. Published in 1980, Poornachandra Tejaswi’s Kannada classic Karvalo is set around the town of Mudugere in Chikmagalur. A typical town in the Western Ghats: The locals grow honey, rear cattle, and live a hard life, which is made harder by police and politicians. They have a stranger in their midst. Professor Carvalho, a scientist posted at a nearby research centre, is a treasury of information on all kinds of agricultural problems, an expert on glow-worms, and a man who receives photographs and letters from around the world. Though the kindly Mangalorean is always ready to help the locals, some of them are suspicious. What is this urbane, prosperous scientist doing in the middle of nowhere? Is he a foreign agent?One day Carvalho confesses. He is on the trail of a very rare lizard, one that can fly. The creature is a living fossil, a relative of the dinosaurs that survived their extinction by growing wings. Though it was last observed a hundred years ago in Africa, Carvalho is sure it matches the descriptions of a creature seen recently in the forests of the Western Ghats. He has written to the Smithsonian Institute and the British Geographical Institute, and they have jointly offered a reward for this amazing lizard-payable in pounds sterling!advertisementNow all the locals want to be friends with Carvalho. A search party, armed with a cook, heads into the woods. Fatigue sets in quickly, and men who are used to coming to the wilderness only for firewood or shikar grow weary of its monotony. The scientist revives them. He makes them see the forest with new eyes: He touches the branch of a tree, and lo!-it sprouts a moustache and legs and turns into a worm. Under the dark cover of the trees, the locals hold discussions with Carvalho. Does God exist? Does He oversee Evolution? If all creatures are subject to Evolution, how has this living fossil alone opted out of the process? At last they find the lizard-or something that might be their lizard-and give it chase as it glides through the trees, slipping past their hands again and again to reach the very edge of the Western Ghats. Now Carvalho and the others think they have got it: The lizard is at a sheer cliff with nowhere to go. The mysterious reptile, however, has one last trick to play on its pursuers.Tejaswi-whose father, Kuvempu, was a celebrated Kannada poet-made his literary reputation in the early 1970s with the short story collection Abachoorina Post Office. Inspired by Ram Manohar Lohia’s call for a social revolution, these angry and poetic stories are as unsettling as anything by Manto. The multi-talented Tejaswi published essays on astronomy and natural history, took photographs of Chikmagalur (where he lived), and translated wildlife books from English into Kannada; by 1980, he had mellowed enough to write Karvalo. The language is simple and precise; the vision, genial and humanistic, rests equally on commitment to one’s fellow men and respect for the environment. If he lacks the nationwide reputation of U.R. Ananthamurthy or cult following of S.L. Bhyrappa-the Mysorean novelist who is a favourite of the Hindutva crowd, Tejaswi, who died in 2007-is adored in Karnataka as no other writer is. Both comic and cosmic, Karvalo expands out of Chikmagalur. Wherever I am in the hills, in Mussoorie or Germany, there are times when leaves rustle behind me and I turn, expecting to find an eccentric Mangalorean scientist in pursuit of a flying lizard that is as ancient as the dinosaurs. -Aravind Adiga is a Booker Prize-winning novelist.

SHARE SHARE EMAIL Published on sport August 19, 2016 Talented Indian grappler Sandeep Tomar lost to two-time World Champion Victor Lebedev of Russia 3-7 in the 57 kg category to get ousted from the men’s freestyle wrestling at the Rio Olympics today.Tomar officially bowed when Lebedev was beaten 1-6 in his next encounter against Sabzali Hassan Rahimi of Iran.Sandeep first conceded a penalty point for his passivity and the Russian World Champion defended well as the Indian did not succeed in his attempt to get an ankle hold.In the process, Lebedev got a couple of technical points, getting better of the Asian Championship gold medallist.The first three-minute period saw the Russian leading 3-0. Tomar was more purposeful in the second period as he pushed Lebedev out to get a point and then finally got a single ankle hold right to reduce the margin to 3-5.However with little time left, Tomar had to go for the jugular but in the process had his defence open which enabled the Russian to clinch the bout with a two-point manoeuvre to take an unassailable 7-3 lead.The only wrestler left in the fray in London Olympics bronze medallist Yogeshwar Dutt. Rio 2016: Faster, Higher, Stronger COMMENT SHARE COMMENTS 0
The shipping industry has to face the music when it comes to becoming compliant with the new environmental regulations, such as the Ballast Water Management Convention (BWMC) and the IMO’s 2020 Sulfur Cap, as highlighted by Polys Hajioannou, Chairman & CEO of Safe Bulkers in an interview provided by Capital Link.Namely, shipowners have to install the necessary BWM equipment during the next drydocking of their ships, while ships older than 20 years will most likely head for scrapping as making them compliant is not cost effective.Hajioannou said that Safe Bulkers plans to start installing the equipment on its ships as of early 2018.This, in turn, will result in removing of older tonnage from the fleet providing some breathing space for owners in the oversupplied market.Speaking on the sulfur emissions cap Hajioannou said that owners have to wait and see what the industry will offer in terms of technological solutions to become compliant with the new regulations before they decide how to cope with the new regulations.As explained, the use of scrubbers is not economically viable and shipowners cannot shoulder the costs on their own, adding that the whole industry has to contribute to a certain extent.“Other solutions have to be found. Either financing for the necessary equipment or by concentrating on how the industry will provide the necessary fuel quality required,” he added.Hajioannou further explained that these are the main reasons why he is optimistic that the oversupply in the market “will not come back in the foreseeable future.”Namely, the current market situation is keeping orders at bay, having in mind that even the shipbuilding yards have not yet embedded the new regulations in their designs as these still comply only with Tier II NOx emission standards.“We have to wait for the new technology to come out and ships compliant with Tier III emission regulations to come on offer before we consider ordering,” he said.As it is still early days, Hajioannou stressed that many changes are expected to occur with respect to adoption of the new regulations and their implementation.In addition, financial constraints and lack of available financing for shipowners is another factor preventing speculative ordering.As disclosed, there are only 20 banks left from the previous 42 that have remained in the sector in Europe, prompting owners to seek more expensive financing in China.Monaco-based dry bulk shipping specialist Safe Bulkers managed to return to profitability in the third quarter of 2017, after seeing losses for an extended period.In the three months ended September 30, the company’s net income reached USD 6.7 million as compared to net loss of USD 24.5 million reported during the same period in 2016.The positive result was influenced by net revenues, which increased by 38% to USD 37.3 million for the third quarter of 2017, compared to USD 27.1 million for the same period in 2016, driven by improved charter rates and a rise in the average number of vessels.The company’s 38 vessels were earning a time charter equivalent (TCE) rate of USD 10,419, up from a TCE rate of USD 7,637 during the same period in 2016.As of October 25, 2017, the company had contracted to acquire its last drybulk newbuild vessel, a Japanese Kamsarmax class vessel, scheduled for delivery in 2018.World Maritime News Staff
Ontario Tories quietly release list of campaign promises call it final planOntario Tories quietly release list of campaign promises call it final plan
After vowing for weeks to deliver a fully costed platform, Ontario’s Progressive Conservatives on Wednesday quietly released a compilation of their campaign promises without saying how they would pay for them.The updated “Plan for the People,” posted on the party’s website, lays out how much each initiative is expected to cost but not where the money will come from, nor does it explain the billions in so-called “efficiencies” Tory Leader Doug Ford has promised to find.Ford did not speak about the online document, but his spokeswoman said it was the party’s final plan.“We do not know the state of Ontario’s finances and anyone who tells you they do is lying to you,” Melissa Lantsman said, alluding to the provincial auditor general’s finding that the governing Liberals’ deficit projections are understated by billions.Lantsman said the Tories would not balance the budget in the first or second year of their term but were committed to getting the books back in the black as quickly as possible.Ford faced increasing criticism for not releasing a full platform earlier in the campaign, with NDP Leader Andrea Horwath and Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne deeming it disrespectful to voters.Both Horwath and Wynne heaped scorn on the notion that Ford had released a full plan Wednesday.“Look: This is not a fully costed plan, it’s not coherent,” Wynne said at a stop in Markham, Ont., where she pushed her government’s transit record. “All of the things that Doug Ford has said would add up to a $40-billion hole and they have no idea how they would find that.”Horwath was equally jaundiced, saying it wasn’t good enough for Ford to write a “list of things he might do and put it on the internet.”People should know what Ford’s plans are, what he’s going to cut and what services might be at risk, the NDP leader said.“His list of things-to-do that he put on his website is not going to help people to decide which way to vote and what’s their best interest in this campaign,” Horwath said. “What’s worrisome is we have a leader who’s trying to take the chair of the premier in this province and he’s not being honest with people.”The Tories began the campaign with a significant lead only to find themselves now battling the NDP for first place in the polls, which also show the Liberals falling further behind both.With the election roughly a week away, Wynne travelled to the heart of her NDP rival’s riding on Wednesday to portray herself as the only seasoned stateswoman in the campaign capable of rising above the ideological fray.At a stop in Hamilton outside a Stelco steel plant, she attacked both Horwath and Ford as unyielding ideologues without the experience to fend off the threat of American steel tariffs.“On the one end of the spectrum, you have Doug Ford — he’s expressed his admiration for (U.S. President) Donald Trump, despite the chaos, the uncertainty that the Trump administration has caused Ontario,” Wynne said. “On the other extreme, you have the NDP, who have historically campaigned against free-trade agreements — I would suggest a rigid and impractical position.”The United States has exempted Canadian steel and aluminum from new tariffs on an interim basis. The exemption is due to expire Friday.While the federal government under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has done much of the heavy lifting to protect the industry in Canada, Wynne played up her own efforts.“Over the past year, I have met with 37 governors, I have met with senators, I’ve met with congresspeople, I’ve met with senior members of the U.S. administration, all in an attempt to make it clear what our integrated relationship means to workers on both sides of the border,” said Wynne, who has been trailing behind her rivals in recent polls.“We were assertive, we were steadfast in our effort to make Ontario’s case to those decision makers. That threat of U.S. protectionism is not going to scare us off.”Wynne said Ontario has developed one of the strongest economies in North America under a Liberal government that worked with employees, business leaders, and political leaders on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border.Voters have a choice between her and her two inexperienced rivals, she said.“They’re going to be choosing a person to lead them who will be in some very tricky, very delicate negotiations with U.S. officials,” Wynne said. “That’s the reality of the role premier (and) we cannot let ideology get in our way.”Horwath, who portrayed herself as a champion of steel and steelworkers, rejected Wynne’s comments as “trying to stir up some trouble.” She said she had been vocal in her support of the industry.“Should I be given the opportunity to serve as premier I will be one of the biggest champions the steel industry has ever seen,” Horwath said. “It has literally, not only built our country and fuelled the economy of a nation, but it has absolutely and completely … built my city.”

North Korea says it has decided to halt missile nuclear testsNorth Korea says it has decided to halt missile nuclear tests
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un says he has suspended all missile tests and will shut down a nuclear test site.“From 21 April, North Korea will stop nuclear tests and launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles,” the country’s state news agency said. “It will also contribute to creating a very positive environment for the success of the upcoming South-North summit and North-United States summit,” a statement from Mr Moon’s office said. Mr Kim is due to meet his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in next week for the first inter-Korean summit in over a decade, and US President Donald Trump by June.Both countries have been pushing Pyongyang to denuclearise and they reacted positively to the latest development. The decision to suspend missile launches was made during a meeting of the ruling party’s central committee on Friday, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said.In a statement quoted by the agency, Mr Kim said it was no longer necessary to conduct missile tests because “nuclear weaponisation” had been achieved.“The northern nuclear test site has completed its mission,” he said. Mr Kim said further tests were unnecessary because Pyongyang’s nuclear capabilities had been “verified”. “This is very good news for North Korea and the World – big progress!” Mr Trump tweeted after the announcement.On Thursday, the US leader said there was a “bright path available to North Korea when it achieves denuclearisation”.A spokesperson for the South Korean president called the North’s move “meaningful progress”. The surprise announcement comes as North Korea prepares for historic talks with South Korea and the US. This echoes a previous statement made during a New Year address in which Mr Kim declared his nuclear and ballistic missile programs completed.After six nuclear tests North Korea may feel it does not need to upgrade its existing designs, says the BBC’s Laura Bicker in Seoul.Although Pyongyang said it would abolish its nuclear test site, there is no indication it is planning to get rid of its existing weapons.The decision to halt missile tests is also aimed at pursuing economic growth, according to KCNA. Mr Kim reportedly pledged to “concentrate all efforts” on developing a socialist economy during Friday’s meeting. (Courtesy BBC)
Jason Gordy is bringing gold to Simcoe.Gordy won gold in the men’s singles competition with a final score of 502 in 10-pin bowling at the Special Olympics World Games in Abu Dhabi on the weekend. He also placed 5th in the team event, and will be competing in doubles on Tuesday with a partner.“We were so excited he got gold,” said Shirley Shaw, the Simcoe community coordinator of Special Olympics Ontario. “We’re more than ecstatic that all of the extra training he put in has really paid off. Jason is a lovely young man that is very involved in the Special Olympics.”The 46-year-old Special Olympics athlete has been representing Team Canada for 25 years.The gold medal winner left Simcoe and headed to Toronto on March 6 to catch his flight for his three-week stay in the United Arab Emirates.“It’s all Jason, it’s not me,” said Gordy’s bowling coach Cliff Butler. “He did all the work, I just kept talking to him and explaining to him and he did it.”Along with 5 and 10-pin bowling, Gordy also golfs, plays basketball, and is a junior coach with the swim team.
UN announces accord to move forward in Kosovo on building multiethnic societyUN announces accord to move forward in Kosovo on building multiethnic society
The plan is seen as a crucial step along the road to determining the final status of Kosovo, where Albanians outnumber other communities, mainly Serbs, by about 9 to 1. Before NATO’s intervention the province was ruled from Belgrade, Serbia’s capital. The issue of minorities has been a major stumbling block. Serb participation in recent elections was very poor and in his most recent report on the province Secretary-General Kofi Annan cited as a cause for concern the low return of minorities who had fled fighting and harassment. “I welcome the very quick start we have seen from the Government, bearing in mind they have just taken office only two weeks ago,” Mr. Annan’s Special Representative, Søren Jessen-Petersen, said in Pristina, Kosovo’s capital. “Today’s agreement shows that we are moving quickly in the right direction,” he added, noting that all involved have a very tight timetable to meet by mid-2005, when they need to show clear progress in order to move on to final status talks. Mr. Jessen-Petersen and Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj, named following elections in October, agreed on one of Mr. Annan’s key recommendations, “the prioritization of Standards.” In lay terms this means deciding which to tackle first among eight goals in such areas as building democratic institutions, enforcing minority rights, creating a functioning economy and establishing an impartial legal system. The UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) did not specifically spell out the order but said the priorities selected are those “most urgent for, and central to, the development of a sustainable, multi-ethnic Kosovo where all people can live, work, travel and prosper in safety and security.” Their implementation is key to unlocking further progress on all the Standards, which are essential “for bringing Kosovo closer to Euro-Atlantic structures, expectations and aspirations,” it added. Mr. Haradinaj committed his government to implementing them. “I hope that the leaders of all the communities of Kosovo will join me in this effort, for which we would also like to have the full support of UNMIK,” he said. He heads what is officially called the Provisional Institutions of Self Government (PISG), to which UNMIK has been incrementally handing over such powers as energy, local self-government, and returns and communities. Mr. Jessen-Petersen today also welcomed additional funding of €23.9 million (euro) from the European Commission, which will support PISG in implementing the Standards. He noted specifically that nearly €13 million are earmarked for economic development, one of Mr. Annan’s key recommendations. “The economy in Kosovo is in a dire situation, and the EU can play an increasing role in partnership with the PISG in creating prospects for the unemployed,” he said. Another €5 million will be added to programmes for the return of internally displaced persons, and the envoy said he was confident the PISG would make good use of the new funding to improve the conditions for sustainable returns.

H1Z1 Launches FreetoPlay on PS4 Open Beta Begins on May 22H1Z1 Launches FreetoPlay on PS4 Open Beta Begins on May 22
Hands-On: ‘Stranded Sails’ Is a Relaxing Farm Sim AdventureHere’s an Hour of Incomprehensible ‘Death Stranding’ Gameplay Stay on target Everyone knows about “Battle Royale” games like Fortnite and PUBG. What they may not know is that those games owe a lot to titles like DayZ and H1Z1. The latter is now headed to PS4; giving players yet another challenger for the battle royale throne. Those who want to try the newly-designed H1Z1 can do so during the open beta which launches on May 22.“H1Z1 on PS4 is true battle royale mayhem,” said H1Z1 Producer Terrence Yee. “We have reimagined the game for PlayStation 4 and have designed it to accentuate the essentials of battle royale that make the genre so exciting to watch and play. We have added key gameplay differentiators to keep the game frantic and fun — an action shooter’s dream of fast-paced battle royale.”H1Z1 has traditionally been a PC game. Now that it is on PS4, its control scheme has been reworked for the DualShock 4. The game has a “grab-and-go” equipment system, which makes it easier to collect loot and manage one’s inventory. It also has a weapon wheel; allowing users quicker access to guns and grenades. The HUD has also been revamped. Keeping with the streamlined nature of the title, the crafting system has been removed.Since this is a battle royale game, players will need to scour the map to find equipment like guns, body armor, helmets, first-aid kits, and grenades. These are located in almost all buildings. To get better equipment, users must keep an eye out for airdrops. These supply players with weapons like the AK and AR, in addition to the new KH43, CNQ-09, Marauder, MK46, Combat Shotgun, and Scout Rifle. Airdrops also provide the best armors which in turn help players live longer. They must prepare to fight when going to an airdrop site since others will surely seek them well.Airdrops have level 1 equipment. To get level 2 and level 3 weapons and gear, players must carefully search the ever-shrinking map for special crates containing the rare loot. Tier 2 and 3 weapons are also delivered via crates from airdrops. This requires a more passive style of gameplay. Tier 1 through 3 items are found in crates that come in via airdrops. They emit a colored beam in the sky when they land. Green is for tier 1, blue is for tier 2, and gold is for tier 3. As mentioned above, players will converge on these spots to secure the loot. Tier 1 crates are also scattered throughout the map. To find them, users must keep their ears and eyes open for low radio chatter and a signal beacon when they are close.Starting today through May 22, players can pre-order a special H1Z1 bundle for $29.99. This bundle includes in-game cosmetic items which are granted at the start of the open beta. Those who pre-order will also get a dynamic theme at the time of purchase. PlayStation Plus subscribers can buy the bundle for 20% off at the PlayStation Store. Players can sign up for the first closed beta weekend (which starts this month) by heading over to the game’s official website.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
Two men who allegedly fired shots at a group of high school students, wounding two, following an argument at Vancouver’s Marine Park in September were in Clark County Superior Court this week.Mykola Kovalchuk, 20, of Gresham, Ore., appeared Thursday on suspicion of two counts of attempted first-degree murder, 11 counts of first-degree assault with a deadly weapon and one count of drive-by shooting. A co-defendant, Dmitriy Yurchenko, also 20, of Portland appeared Tuesday on the same charges.Vancouver defense attorney Steve Thayer was present Thursday on behalf of Kovalchuk and argued that the probable cause affidavit, which has been sealed since the men’s arrest warrants were issued in mid-October, should be unsealed.Deputy Prosecutor Aaron Bartlett agreed to unseal both cases. He added that there’s a separate ongoing investigation but would not elaborate further.A group of 11 high school students were leaving a bonfire shortly before 11 p.m. Sept. 29 at the park, 4501 S.E. Columbia Way, when they encountered a group of 10 to 15 Eastern European males, including Yurchenko and Kovalchuk, in the parking lot. Some of the males were blocking a female student’s car from leaving, according to the probable cause affidavit.The female student asked the group to move so she could back out of her parking spot, but they refused. The girl became impatient, she said, and told the group to move, using a derogatory term. In response, one of the males wanted to fight, the affidavit states.
Huawei founder is confident UK wont say no to us in 5GHuawei founder is confident UK wont say no to us in 5G
Huawei’s boss is confident the company will plant its flag in the UK’s 5G network. Fred Dufour / AFP/Getty Images Huawei’s founder and CEO reckons the UK “won’t say no to us” when it comes to using the Chinese company’s equipment in its 5G next generation wireless infrastructure, despite ongoing US security concerns. Speaking to Sky News, Ren Zhengfei also praised new Prime Minister Boris Johnson as “very decisive.””I think they won’t say no to us as long as they go through those rigorous tests and look at it in a serious manner and I think if they do say no, it won’t be to us,” he said in the interview.Huawei has been a target of US lawmakers over concerns about its links with the Chinese government and fears that its equipment could be used to spy on other countries and companies. The US actively discouraged its European allies not to use Huawei in their 5G networks. Comments 4:59 Mobile Internet Back in April, the UK’s National Security Council apparently agreed to let the scandal-scarred telecoms giant work on “noncore” parts of the infrastructure, but there’s been a great deal of upheaval since then — namely a changing British government and US President Donald Trump blacklisting Huawei, which stopped American companies from selling equipment to it, but he’s since said he’ll reverse the ban.Ren also talked to Sky News about the potential block on Huawei phones using Google’s Android, in the wake of the company unveiling HarmonyOS last week. Huawei said it could be used on phones if it loses access to Android — which might ultimately hurt the US. iPhone XS Max vs. Huawei P30 Pro sample photos 23 Photos Share your voice “If the US government does not allow Google to provide Android system, then the world may have a third operating system — and that is not in the best benefit or interests of the United States, allowing a little brother operating system into the world,” Ren said.”You cannot rule out the chance that the third operating system might outrun them someday.”The UK Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Department, which is responsible for the 5G rollout, didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.First published at 3:13 a.m. PT.Updated at 3:51 a.m. PT: Adds more detail.

2018 Mercedes-Benz E400 Cabriolet: How sweet it is The first self-driving big-rig hits the road in Nevada 13 Photos 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid: First hybrid minivan wins on fuel economy More From Roadshow Comments 1:53 Enlarge ImageThe US isn’t keeping up with motorists’ demands on the highway system. Pete Seaward/Getty Images If you’re reading this from North Dakota, Virginia or Missouri, congratulations: Believe it or not, your states have the highest-performing US highway systems in the entire country. If you think things are bad, try a stint in New Jersey, Alaska or Rhode Island, which ranked as the states home to the worst US highway systems.A new study from the Reason Foundation looked at the US highway system as a whole and by state to determine which states are home to the most efficient and cost-effective highways. Meanwhile, the study also took a dive into some of the biggest problems the US faces. Overall, things are not in good shape.Although the top three states house the most efficient and cost-effective highway systems, pavement conditions on both urban and rural highways has declined. Traffic fatalities are up and traffic congestion has increased since the previous report. This year’s study uses state data from 2016 — the most recent data on file — and traffic congestion and bridge data from 2017.Baruch Feigenbaum, lead author of the Annual Highway Report and assistant director of transportation at Reason Foundation, said in the study that the US showed incremental improvements in the highway system overall for decades, but in recent years, it’s fallen behind substantially. The only area that showed an improvement was a decrease in structurally deficient bridges. In other words, states have replaced bridges that can’t handle traffic like they used to.Green is good, red is bad. Reason Study You may say the problem is money, but the study shows that likely not the final answer. Despite spending more than any other state per mile of highway, New Jersey ranks dead last in 50th place for urban traffic and pavement conditions. On the topic of just pavement condition alone, urban highways with pavement in poor condition increased in 29 out of all 50 states. One-third of the poor conditions can be found in just five states, however: California, Delaware, Hawaii, Louisiana and New York. For those states with less metropolitan areas, it’s not all smooth sailing either. Conditions of rural highways fell to their lowest point since 2000. If the US ever needed a kick in the pants to fix its road infrastructure problems, now is likely the time.These issues are what $139 billion worth of funds spent in 2016 buys motorists. The figure is actually down from $145 billion spent in 2015. However, it’s important to note a lot of these awful statistics is largely associated with the bottom 10 states.”Towards the bottom of the rankings, you have highly populated states, like last-place New Jersey, along with Massachusetts, New York, and California to a lesser extent, that are spending a lot but often failing to keep up with traffic congestion and road maintenance,” Feigenbaum said. Another problem are lower-population states with high administrative costs. Full funds often don’t even reach the roads. The study is talking about you, Rhode Island, Delaware, Hawaii and Alaska.
