From The Chicago Tribune: ”The Chicago Transit Authority has started installing electronic signs at 400 of its busiest bus shelters to inform riders when the next bus will arrive. Those 400 shelters represent 20 percent of the bus shelters throughout Chicago, but accommodate 80 percent of the system’s bus ridership, CTA President Forrest Claypool said. The cost of the project is covered by $1.4 million of CTA funds, a $1.8 million Regional Transportation Authority grant and $640,000 in federal transit money.”
Now those without cell phones can get the same level of service, at least at 400 stops, as those with them. Also, who knew LED signs were so expensive? $3.84 million dollar project works out to $9,600 per sign. This doesn’t include GPS, which the buses were already equipped with.

Rafflesia Arnoldii

Rafflesia arnoldii is the world’s largest flower having a diameter of about one meter and weighing up to ten kilograms. It is a rare flower and not easily located. It grows only once a year and blooms for around five days. According to researches in discovery news, this flower that looks and smells like rotting flesh is related to flimsy flowers like violets, poinsettias and passionflowers. Hence it also called as “meat flower” or “corpse flower”. The flower is pollinated by flies and carrion beetles attracted by its vile smell. It contains about 27 species and found in Indonesian rain forests of southeastern Asia and Philippines. Rafflesia is an official state flower of Indonesia, Surat Thani Province in Thailand and Sabah state in Malaysia.
