Nebraska has hosted its share of movies

Nebraska has hosted its share of movies | patriciabaptistapatriciasofiasoraiacorreia | Scoop.it

Alexander Payne is shooting “Nebraska,” his fourth film set in his home state and the largest production to take place in Nebraska since his “About Schmidt’ was filmed here more than a decade ago.

 

Writer/director Payne’s seven-week shoot on the black-and-white film was scheduled to begin this week. It will star Bruce Dern as a growly father who wants his son, played by Will Forte, to take him from Montana to Lincoln to claim a sweepstakes prize. Some scenes will be shot in Lincoln and the remainder in Norfolk and surrounding small towns.

 

Over the last three-quarters of a century, a good number of feature films, made for TV movies and documentaries have been shot in Nebraska, including Boys Town (1938), Terms of Endearment (1983) and To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar (1994)

A Educação virou mercadoria, muitos colégios agora são empresas que vendem um produto que eles intitulam de "educação". Perderam a essência da Educação.

Tunneling through Andes to speed global trade

Tunneling through Andes to speed global trade | patriciabaptistapatriciasofiasoraiacorreia | Scoop.it
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — South American engineers are trying to tackle one of the continent's greatest natural challenges: the towering Andes mountain chain that creates a costly physical barrier for...

 

At the NCGE conference, noted author Harm De Blij mentioned a daring project that would link Eastern South America with the Pacific as engineers were planning to tunnel under the Andes mountains.  Here is a link to an article on this intermodal transportation project that would lower the shipping costs from East Asia to the Southern Atlantic.  Government officials in both Argentina and Brazil have described the  project as a matter of "national interest."

Rachel Phillips's curator insight, May 7, 2015 12:54 PM

This is a great idea for a region that has the need to travel so much through such a tough area. Even if it will cost a lot of money to accomplish, in the long run it will save more than it costs to build.  This could change so much, and really boost their economies. Not only would it speed up shipping time and lower shipping costs, but it would allow more shipping to be done which means more business throughout the entire year as opposed to the situation now with snow getting in the way. Not only would it effect that aspect of the economy but it would also produce jobs for the time of the work being done, which is never a bad thing.

If this project can be accomplished, it would truly be one of the greatest engineering feats in human history. To build a railroad tunnel through the Andes mountains seems impossible, but in all likelihood with the right amount of funding, it can be done. The tunnel would have great economic benefits for both Brazil and Argentina. Goods from both countries could be shipped in both directions with out any issues. The larger world would also benefit from the train tunnel. It is estimated that the tunnel would lower the shipping costs from East Asia to the Southern Atlantic. The entire global trading market would benefit from this development.

Doing something such as this is a brilliant move in engineering. Making a tunnel through the Andes will connect countries together, make shipping much easier and doing so may cut the cost of goods being shipped and received. Just like the Panama Canal increased the cargo freight lining industry for shipping, this will also increase an industry for railways,.
