How to Build a Bicycle Generator : 9 Steps

The intention of this project is to build a straight forward human powered generator from a used bicycle and to use it to power light bulbs, blenders, cell phones, laptops, and other small appliances. This project will help one develop engineering skills while learning about a clean way of generating electricity.

The project was created as part of Infrastructure Academy’s environmental technology curriculum for high school students, so it is intended to be both achievable and affordable.

Before continuing with the actual bicycle generator, one should understand how it works, and the components that make it up. View the PowerPoint presentation before moving on to the next step.

Traveling towards disease: transportation barriers to health care access. – PubMed

Transportation barriers are often cited as barriers to healthcare access. Transportation barriers lead to rescheduled or missed appointments, delayed care, and missed or delayed medication use. These consequences may lead to poorer management of chronic illness and thus poorer health outcomes. However, the significance of these barriers is uncertain based on existing literature due to wide variability in both study populations and transportation barrier measures. The authors sought to synthesize the literature on the prevalence of transportation barriers to health care access. A systematic literature search of peer-reviewed studies on transportation barriers to healthcare access was performed. Inclusion criteria were as follows: (1) study addressed access barriers for ongoing primary care or chronic disease care; (2) study included assessment of transportation barriers; and (3) study was completed in the United States. In total, 61 studies were reviewed. Overall, the evidence supports that transportation barriers are an important barrier to healthcare

Transportation as a Civil Rights Issue

Many things come to mind when you think about transportation: Traffic, congestion, mass transit and the cost of fuel, to name a few. You might also think about the economy, urban planning and the environment. Yet one thing often is left out of the discussion: civil rights.

The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights lays out the case for transportation as a civil right in a report, Where We Need to Go: A Civil Rights Roadmap for Transportation Equity.

The way the conference sees it, access to transportation is key to connecting the poor, seniors and those with disabilities to jobs, schools, health care and other resources. It is essential to widening opportunities for all. Many of us take our mobility for granted, but getting around can be a real challenge for millions of Americans.

This is a key issue as Congress considers the surface transportation reauthorization bill,

Hot to Get from JFK Airport to Manhattan

  Time Cost Best For
Subway 60–90 minutes from $10.50 Traveling on a budget
Commuter Train 35 minutes from $15.50 Arriving in a rush
Taxi 45 minutes from $52 (plus tolls and tip) Stress-free commuting
Airport Shuttle 90 minutes from $19 Balancing cost and convenience

By Subway

New Yorkers both love their subway and love to complain about their subway, and while it may not be the cleanest or most punctual metro system in the world, it’s surprisingly easy to use for getting from JFK Airport into Manhattan and undoubtedly your cheapest option. The total travel time depends heavily on where in Manhattan you want to get to, but before you get on the subway, you need to use the AirTrain to get out of the airport.

The AirTrain is a tram that circles all of the terminals at JFK and connects to two different transit stations outside of the airport
