Active Travel to Work and Cardiovascular Risk Factors in the United Kingdom

submitted by: samwong
Background: Increasing active travel (walking, cycling, public transport) is increasingly seen as integral to strategies to raise physical activity levels. Purpose: This study examined (1) sociodemographic correlates of active travel to work and (2) associations between active travel and cardiovascular risk factors in the United Kingdom (UK). Methods: Data come from Understanding Society, a nationally representative survey of UK residents in 2009/2011, analyzed in 2012. Multinomial...

Walk Scores and Transit Scores and Walking in the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis

submitted by: Jahirsch
Background: Walk Scores and Transit Scores are open-source measures of the neighborhood built environment to support walking (“walkability”) and access to transportation. Purpose: To investigate associations of Street Smart Walk Score and Transit Score with selfreported transport and leisure walking using data from a large multicity and diverse populationbased sample of adults. Methods: Data from a sample of 4552 residents of Baltimore MD, Chicago IL, Forsyth County NC, Los Angeles...

Does transportation mode modify associations between distance to food store, fruit and vegetable consumption, and BMI in low-income neighborhoods?

submitted by: fuller.daniel
Background: A consistent body of research has shown that the neighborhood food environment is associated with fruit and vegetable (F&V) consumption and obesity in deprived neighborhoods in the United States. However, these studies have often neglected to consider how transportation can moderate associations between food accessibility and diet-related outcomes. Objective: This study examined associations between distance to primary food store, fruit and vegetable consumption, and BMI...

The purpose of this research is to examine if the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system is a better alternative form of public transportation than the proposed LRT solution.

Star Drive Propulsion - A New Way to Get Around

submitted by: dplews
A new method of creating continuous thrust is demonstrated and explained. The device was designed and tested with the latest CAD software, the data set from which was then used to produce a physical, proof of concept, model that was then subjected to load cell testing to show and measure the thrust generated (4 axis -Test videos and results available upon request.), and was also given a real world test that is shown in the video that gives clear visual proof of its ability. This video...

New Urbanism, an Experiment or a Practical Approach?

submitted by: judychau

Conformation of Americans to their vehicles has caused a great amount of congestion and problems in the urban infrastructure, in which New Urbanism claims to relieve. This project questions the effectiveness of New Urbanist theories and presents a realistic understanding of transit oriented development in relationship with the American lifestyle.

Modern Transportation and Infectious Disease – MWV15

submitted by: MicrobeWorld
From your local bus route to international air travel, infectious diseases can spread across the globe in a matter of hours. In this video podcast episode filmed at the Koshland Science Museum in Washington, D.C., Stephen Eubank from the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute of Virginia Tech and Daniel Lucey from Georgetown University discuss the role of transportation in the spread of disease and examine the effectiveness of various measures to curb transmission. Stephen Eubank, Ph.D., is a...
