Whether it’s the transition from 4G to 5G, which will bring industries together to develop new technologies, or how self-driving cars factor into that equation, America must lead.

NASA looks to make Traveling by Personal Air Vehicle a Reality

 

NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationEdwards, CA –  There was a time when people and goods were moved through the crowded city on the ground, restricted to the busy street surfaces by necessity and gravity.

So, inspired visionaries considered new ways to get about town and dreamt of innovative flying machines that could safely transport passengers and ship cargo within the urban jungle by rising above the congestion below.

No, we’re not talking about the Wright Brothers in 1903.

This is the new era in air transportation that NASA and a community of government, industry and academic partners are working together on, right now.

Tennessee Gas Prices Face Upward Pressure

 

Clarksville-Montgomery County has the Third Cheapest Gas Prices in Tennessee

AAATampa, FL Tennessee gas prices averaged $2.59 on Sunday. See today’s price

The state average is the same as last week, and 22 cents less than the national average. However, Tennessee motorists are paying 47 cents more per gallon than this time last year. 

The rising price of oil may drag gas prices higher this week. Oil prices reached a new 2018 high, on the belief that President Trump may pull out of the Iran Nuclear Deal. Such a move would likely reinstate sanctions, resulting in reduced global supply, and higher fuel prices. 

Oil Prices may rise on Iran Nuclear Deal.

Curtis Johnson: News from the Tennessee Capitol, March 18th, 2018

 

Written by Curtis Johnson
Tennessee State Representative

Tennessee State Representative - District 68

Nashville, TN – Next week, the full House will consider legislation that seeks to place the nation’s motto, “In God We Trust,” in all Tennessee schools. House Bill 2368 calls for the motto be displayed in a prominent location. The establishment of this motto was signed into law in 1956 by President Eisenhower, but was imprinted on U.S. coins and currency long before that time.

According to a 2003 joint poll by USA Today, CNN, and Gallup, 90% of Americans support the inscription “In God We Trust” on U.S. coins.

In 2006, on the 50th anniversary of its adoption, the United States Senate reaffirmed “In God We Trust” as the official national motto of the United States of America
