Root Wireless and CNET are teaming up to make a crowd-sourced map of cellphone signal quality with data available in Los Angeles and several other cities.
"The map lets us choose between what type of reported info we would like to see, whether 'Signal,' 'Data' or 'Network,' but there is no device category. We can also see the number of zones reporting 'No Bars,' 'Access Failure' and 'Hot Zones' (such as dropped calls), but no information on how many people have reported these issues." [via LA NOW]
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- LADWP customers in Los Angeles could see their rates go up. A controversial carbon reduction surcharge has been approved by Department of Water and Power commissioners.
It was proposed by L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to help the city shift toward "green" energy. But other city leaders say it's hardly the right time.
Homa Mahmoudi is a homeowner in Brentwood and is hoping to retire soon.
"Every little bit affects us and the budget we have for our lives and also the retirement funds that we have," said Mahmoudi.
The I-405 Sepulveda Pass Widening Project now has two new ways to share information about the project.
· Please visit our Facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Los-Angeles-CA/I-405-Sepulveda-Pass-Widening-Project/197583884945#!. Our Facebook page allows us to share more detail than practical during our quarterly community meetings or our Community Advisory Committee meetings. Here we post construction updates, photographs, and pieces explaining how this complex project is being built. Visitors will discover profiles of key project staff and the skills they bring to the project. And soon we will be adding brief videos. We update this page several times each week, so you will often find something new. Become a fan of the Facebook page, and you will receive an email notice when new material has been added.
· Information on our Facebook page is also available at the project website: www.metro.net/projects/I-405.
· To send advisories through a secure and advertisement-free channel, we now send project updates through Nixle. As with Facebook, Nixle is free to join. Used by many government agencies, such as police and fire departments, Nixle enforces strict rules about what material can be sent to registered Nixle recepients. (Nixle refers to these as registered residents.) You can become a registered resident of our I-405 project advisories by joining Nixle at http://www.nixle.com. Nixle sends messages to those whose address falls with a certain geographic area. You select that area, so, you will never receive an advisory from Paso Robles, California.
· For our outreach efforts, Nixle offers two advantages over Twitter. One, we can include photographs with our advisories. Two, we can include both a text and email message at the same time. This allows us to describe updates with more detail.
We will continue to use Twitter for brief updates on construction and project updates. As many of you know, Twitter is a free service as well. You can join Twitter at http://twitter.com.
If you have any other methods you would like us to provide information, please write or call me.
