    Not too many "experts" are going to be willing to go as far as I with that title but they will come around in a few years. The rogue islamic nations of the world have a friend in China (and Russia) but that's another column. First they have some triumphs they must achieve in the financial world and they are well on course to that end. A commercial was featured today on Special Report with Brett Baier that was amazingly similar in substance to the opening of a column I wrote in February of 2010. The commercial was well produced...

    AUSTIN, Texas — If anyone wondered whether Texas toll road rage had subsided or lawmakers' irritation at the Texas Department of Transportation had eased, those questions got answered a few days before Christmas: Not so much. Denouncing the massive transportation agency as dysfunctional and out of control, a group of lawmakers reviewing the department said it will be intensely debated in the legislative session that begins Jan. 13. "This is a big agency that is a mess," said Rep. Carl Isett, a Lubbock Republican and one of the leaders of the Sunset Advisory Commission that periodically examines state agencies. He...

    Confronted with a struggling transportation fund, lawmakers in Texas soon are expected to wage battle on various methods to help generate $14 billion for roads and bridges throughout the state. Another bill is intended to sideline the planned Trans-Texas Corridor. A report released this week from the Texas Department of Transportation says that the state will need to come up with $313 billion by 2030 for road and bridge maintenance and for congestion solutions. The report’s unveiling happened a couple of weeks before the Texas Legislature is set to convene its 2009 session. Lawmakers say they already were committed to...

    Study Predicts Obesity Apocalypse by 2030 Experts Weigh in on Fate of Rapidly Fattening Populace By DAN CHILDS ABC News Medical Unit Aug. 2, 2008— Rising sea levels. Flying cars. Speculation about what the world will look like a quarter century from now are in no short supply. But if new research released this week is correct, we can at least be sure of one thing: The forecast calls for fatness. The study, released this week in the journal Obesity, suggests that by the year 2030, nearly every American will be overweight or obese. Currently, figures from the U.S. Centers...

    Obama criticizes McCain on offshore drillingLast Edited: Friday, 20 Jun 2008, 3:32 PM EDT JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35, Orlando) -- Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama is in Florida today. He's here criticizing presidential rival John McCain's proposal to allow offshore drilling, saying, it "makes absolutely no sense at all." Obama says opening up the U.S. coastline to oil exploration would not give Americans any appreciable savings until 2030. Instead, Obama said he would invest $150 billion over the next 10 years to create green jobs, particularly in the automotive industry and to improve the electricity grid so people can...

    Cars have been a huge part of our lives. We use them to get around anywhere. It might have been the best invention mankind came up with, but we all hate several common things about cars, such as the cost of gas prices and traffic. We think sometimes in our imagination how awesome it would be if cars had wings, so maybe one day we will fly through terrific! We also despise accidents, high insurance and drunk driving. Sometimes, I feel that we need other alternative means of transportation, such as a subway system in the state of Texas; maybe...

    Japan's space agency has provoked surprise among other space experts by re-affirming its ambition to build a habitable base on the Moon within decades. At a lunar exploration symposium in Tokyo this week, head of the country's lunar and planetary exploration programme Junichiro Kawaguchi announced a deadline of 2020 for sending astronauts to the Moon, and 2030 for constructing the base.

    In the next few decades, the ever-growing Dallas-Fort Worth area could experience striking changes in the way that people and goods move. North Central Texas' population has been ballooning faster than the transportation infrastructure -- a situation akin to that of a growing middle-schooler whose old jeans don't quite fit anymore. With the Metroplex expected to add about 4 million people by 2030, it's hard to imagine the hellish traffic jams that we'll face in the future unless we take giant steps to reverse course. New transportation projects and strategies are being hashed out now that might someday save us...

    STANFORD, Calif. -- A Stanford University professor says the average life expectancy for people living in most industrial nations could reach 100 years old within the next 25 years. The biology and demographics professor says advances in anti-aging technology and treatments for diseases such as cancer could push the average life expectancy from just under 80 years old to 100 years old by 2030. Shripad Tuljapurkar presented his latest work on life expectancy last month at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Saint Louis.

    World Powers in 2030? a shift in the balance of power continues Those who grew up during the Cold War may have trouble keeping up with shifts among major world powers. Some still think that Russia will reemerge as a superpower, even though it is not even one the world's top 15 economic powers. One may dismiss Japan as a major military power, not realizing that it is the world's second largest economic power whose military spending exceeds that of China. The respected Economist magazine recently published: "World in Figures, 2004." Data has been extracted from this book to provide...

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) - About a sixth of the world's population - nearly 1 billion people - live in slums, and that number could double by 2030 if developed nations don't reverse course and start giving the issue serious attention, according to a United Nations report. The U.N. Human Settlements Program's report, released Saturday, is the first ever to assess slums and examine how widespread they are. Its main concern is the developing nations in Asia and Africa because the migration from rural areas to cities in Europe and the Americas has largely played out. The report's main finding is...
