Pedestrian detour use extended on Dubuque Street

Pedestrian trafficThe existing pedestrian detour on Dubuque Street south of the Park Road Bridge will continue through the end of February, and possibly into early March.

Pedestrians are currently being rerouted off of Dubuque Street for work on the Iowa City Gateway Project. People will instead need to use the Park Road Bridge and connect with the Hancher Pedestrian Bridge. This detour is especially of note for University of Iowa students living in Mayflower Residence Hall and north of the Park Road Bridge.

Crews are continuing to excavate the southbound lanes of Dubuque Street to install deep sanitary sewer. The work is progressing slower than expected because of rock and an aging gas main. Water main will be installed as soon as the sewer has been placed.  Pedestrians will need to continue to reroute to make room for equipment and work.

The detour is currently expected to remain through February, but could be longer given the extent of the work. The City will provide updates as construction progresses.

The Iowa City Gateway Project is a flood mitigation project that will elevate Dubuque Street while raising and replacing the Park Road Bridge. To receive project updates sign-up for City of Iowa City e-subscriptions and follow the City of Iowa City on Facebook and Twitter using #ICgateway.

FMCSA’s Darling says industry is 'linchpin' of U.S. economy

Scott Darling, who’s run the DOT’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration for little over two years, expressed gratitude toward and said goodbye Thursday to the industries he was tasked with regulating. Darling spoke via phone with industry press in an emotional address January 19 — his final day of holding the office.  

“It’s been an incredible ride the last two years. In my small way I hope I have both strengthened and expanded our safety partnerships,” Darling said, referring to his promise to make 2016 “a year of partnerships” with the industries FMCSA oversees — trucking and motorcoach.

Dedicated trucking demand drives J.B. Hunt

Unsated shipper demand for dedicated trucking services helped J.B. Hunt Transport Services to higher profit and revenue in the fourth quarter, underscoring the growing importance of the Dedicated Contract Services division to the $6.6 billion transport company and its customers.

Dedicated trucking accounted for 23 percent of J.B. Hunt revenue in the fourth quarter, but 30 percent of the company’s operating profit. That’s second only to intermodal, which accounted for 58 percent of revenue and 64 percent of operating income, the company said Thursday.

Revenue at the dedicated division rose 8 percent to $398 million in the quarter, propelled by a 5 percent increase in revenue per truck per week. The Lowell, Arkansas-based carrier attributed its gains to higher rates, fewer unseated trucks and greater shipper supply chain fluidity.

Maryland needs late surge for 84-76 road win over Iowa - Baltimore Sun

Playing on the road finally seemed to catch up with the newly ranked Maryland men's basketball team Thursday night at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. A double-digit lead over Iowa early in the second half was gone, as was senior center Damonte Dodd, who fouled out with more than three minutes left.

The young Hawkeyes had a three-point lead and Peter Jok, the Big Ten's leading scorer. But the No. 25 Terps had Melo Trimble, who took over the game as he has often done throughout his career and carried his own youthful team from the brink of its first Big Ten road loss to an 84-76 victory.

Iowa considering stricter offense for texting and driving

DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) – Preliminary crash number for 2016 shows more than one thousand crashes in Iowa were the result of drivers distracted by the use of an electronic device.

The Iowa senate is currently looking at stricter texting and driving laws for adults. Under current law it is only a secondary offense. This mean a driver cannot be pulled over for texting and driving alone.  A driver must first be pulled over for something like speeding.

Uber will shell out $20M to settle claims it misled drivers over wages | Digital Trends

Uber has agreed to pay $20 million over claims made by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) that it recruited drivers with false information about how much they could earn in the job.

The FTC alleged that Uber claimed on its website that the annual median income of Uber drivers in New York City exceeded $90,000, but the consumer protection agency insisted the figure was instead $61,000. In another city, this time San Francisco, Uber put earnings at more than $74,000, while the FTC claimed a more accurate figure was $53,000.

Carb-Check Diet: Chicken and Turkey meats are USUALLY carb-free

Mike Thayer 2016 (2)By Mike Thayer

I used to look up carb counts on the internet or read the packaging for each and every food item I prepared and ate.    When putting something on the grill or in a frying pan for example, I would read the packaging or look on the internet for the serving size and carb count.  Writing those numbers down, I would then do some math to get a carb count total for all foods consumed at meal time.  That carb count research got tedious at times, but now I've got some great data to share!

You don't have to look up carb counts one-at-a-time, I've done all that work for you!

Find carb counts for meat, fish, dairy, veggies, fruits, right here on www.carbcheckdiet.com.

And if you don't see the carb count for a food you want to eat listed here, it's not listed for a reason - the carb count is too high, don't eat it!

Chicken & Turkey is USUALLY carb-free, but there's a caveat.  Be careful when it comes to packaged chicken and turkey sausages and burgers.  Read those labels.  Most brands are fine, but keep in mind that chicken and turkey are lean meats and so in grinding these meats, well, they naturally lack a lot of flavor.  Manufacturers of chicken/turkey sausages and the like use a lot of other ingredients/fillers (which means carbs) in making those products taste good.
